Obama makes strategic visits President courts his favorite states with trips likened to campaign stops. By MARGARET TALEV and CHRIS ADAMS McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — This week, as he launched his re-election campaign, President Barack Obama arranged to visit three of his favorite states: Pennsylvania, New York and Indiana. They all voted for him in 2008, and he’s courting them heavily for 2012. He made two of the three stops as planned, though Indiana will have to wait. Hoping to avert a looming government shutdown, Obama postponed his Friday trip to the Hoosier state, his fifth visit as president. From the time he took office in January 2009 through the end of March, Obama visited 38 states — some far more often than others, with the most-visited tending to be crucial to his 2012 re-election strategy — according to a McClatchy Newspapers analysis of the 317 documented events in that period. Of the dozen states that Obama has yet to visit as president, all voted Republican in the last presi-

dential election except for tiny, and reliably Democratic, Vermont, which has only three electoral votes. Many of Obama’s visits to red states have come in the context of tragedies or deaths that held the nation’s attention: Oil spill or hurricane-related concerns required presidential trips to Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. The president’s two visits in 2010 to West Virginia were memorial services for miners and the late Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd. When Obama spoke in Republican-voting Alaska in late 2009, it was at a military base on his way to Asia. His family’s trip to Yellowstone National Park counts as a visit to red-state Wyoming. However, Obama also has been strategically investing time in red states he’d like to put in play in 2012, such as Missouri (nine events), Texas (six events) and Arizona (five events). AThe states the president visits most often tend to share common traits: They supported him in 2008. They’re among the biggest states, with many electoral votes. They’re important swing states or major donor bastions. Or they’re home to Democratic politicians who needed a boost from Obama in last year’s midterm elections.

In Reno, Santorum eyes 2012 The Associated Press

RENO, Nev. — Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum says he’s visiting Reno because he’s seriously considering running for president and Nevada voters will play an important role in the 2012 election with their early presidential caucus. The Pennsylvanian says he has a reputation as a consistent, authentic, conservative voice who won two races in a state that doesn’t elect many conservatives. He said on KKOH Radio Thursday that even in defeat in 2006, he stayed true to his principles

and didn’t compromise his beliefs like opposition to abortion and gay marriage. Santorum Santorum criticized Nevada Sen. Harry Reid and President Obama for their opposition to coal production. He says he believes the two Democrats actually want higher gas and energy prices to help bolster U.S. consumption of alternative sources they think are best.

ENGINEERING STUDENTS SHINE AT OLYMPICS

WILKES-BARRE – A city man was arrested on charges he raped a woman after threatening to kill her with a knife. Luis Alexi Suarez Perez, 29, of Grant Street, was arraigned Friday in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on two counts each of rape, aggravated assault and simple assault, and one count each of terroristic threats, burglary and reckless endangerment. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: A woman told police she was in her third floor bedroom on April 4 when she heard a door slam shut and her dog barking. Perez apPerez peared at the top of the stairs and slammed her face a few times on the floor and punched her in the head. The woman said Perez threatened to kill her and held a knife to her throat causing a severe injury to her arm when she protected herself, the criminal complaint says. Police said in the criminal complaint that the woman alleged Perez removed her pants and raped her while he held the knife to her throat. After the alleged assault, she said Perez paced in the house holding two knives saying he was going to kill her. He sat on her legs, interrogated her about her personal life and raped her a second time, the criminal complaint says. When the woman told Perez she needed to go to the hospital, he replied she was “going to die anyway,” police said in the criminal complaint. Perez later apologized to the woman and asked for forgiveness. Perez called her friend when the woman collapsed on the third floor. He carried her to the first floor, put her in a vehicle and began driving to a hospital. When he reached the area of Lehigh and Pennsylvania Boulevard, Perez abandoned the vehicle saying he did not want to go to jail, the criminal complaint says.

Café owner gets probation

Michael Struzzeri was charged with failing to file more than $10,000 in sales tax returns. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Pittston business owner charged with failing to file more than $10,000 in sales tax returns for a café he owns was sentenced Friday to 10 years’ probation. Michael A. Struzzeri, of Center Street, was sentenced on 22 counts of willful failure to file tax returns and 22 counts of willful failure to remit sales tax by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Van Jura. “It was never my intention to not pay,” Struzzeri said Friday before being sentenced. “I take responsibility.”

Struzzeri said his actions were not willful and that he was having health and other problems at the time. Deputy Attorney General Tim Doherty said Struzzeri owes “a great deal” of restitution – over $10,000 – and that the only way Struzzeri could pay that money back was if he served a probationary sentence and continued to work. The first 30 days of Struzzeri’s sentence must be served on house arrest with an electronic monitor, Van Jura said, and Struzzeri must complete 25 hours of community service. Struzzeri, who pleaded guilty to the charges in February, was represented by attorney Allyson Kacmarski. According to court papers, Struzzeri is the owner and operator of Center Street Cafe Inc., in Pittston, and no sales, use and hotel occupancy tax

returns were received from July 2008 through April 2010. No remittance of sales tax was received from July 2008 through April 2010. State investigators said an inspection revealed that $10,439 was due in sales tax. During an interview with Special Agent Alex Brogna, Struzzeri said he purchased the business in 2003 and began conducting business on Dec. 16, 2003. State Attorney General investigators said Struzzeri was aware he had to pay the sales tax but unaware that sales tax revenues were trust fund money that was to be given to the state. “(Struzzeri) was unaware that it was a criminal offense to not timely file and/or pay the sales tax returns and the collected sales tax,” court papers say.

The driver of a modified Ford utility truck with the markings “Pioneer Valley Cable Innovations” was transported to an ambulance to be taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries.

Police later spotted the Ford in the area of Wood and Oregon streets and initiated a pursuit. Harding said the driver turned onto Sambourne Street, dragging an officer a short distance. The vehicle came to a stop in front of 211 Sambourne St. where the driver was arrested. Harding said the officer who was dragged was not injured. It remained unknown how the other officer was injured during the pursuit. Paramedics used bleach and water to remove blood that pooled in the middle of Sambourne Street.

Casey urges drug fight aid

After the release of a threat assessment on drug and gang crime in Eastern Pennsylvania that noted growing problems in Hazleton and Kingston, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, called on the Department of Justice to provide more help to local law enforcement to fight the growing threat. According to the report, prepared at Casey’s request by the National Drug Intelligence Center, the influence of New York area drug trafficking organizations and gangs reaches every sizeable drug market in eastern Pennsylvania. “Dominican DTOs and gangs – the most prolific drug distributors in eastern Pennsylvania – are strengthening their operations in Hazleton, a strategic location where they are dominating and expanding drug distribution. … Rival gangs and organized thieves are more frequently engaging in home invasions, ransom kidnappings and organized thefts from drug dealers in many eastern Pennsylvania drug markets,” the report states.

Victims of mistaken NATO airstrike are mourned as they are carried for burial in Benghazi

Libyan rebels fight to keep port city AP PHOTO

A relative mourns over the body of 14-year-old Luiza Paula da Silveira Machado during her funeral at the Jardim da Saudade cemetery in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Friday.

MISRATA, Libya — Anti-government fighters battled forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi in fierce clashes Friday in the only major rebel-held city in western Libya as international relief efforts were stepped up for civilians caught in the crossfire. Heavy shelling was heard at nightfall outside the city, where some neighborhoods have been nearly abandoned after residents fled to safer areas during weeks of fighting. Nearly all buildings were pockmarked from gunfire. It was unclear which side had the upper hand. But a witness said rebel

RIO DE JANEIRO

A coffin draped in the opposition flag is carried into the square in Benghazi, Libya, on Friday during prayers. The funeral was for some of those killed by Thursday’s airstrike on rebel forces. NATO acknowledged Friday that its airstrikes had hit rebels using tanks to fight Moammar Gadhafi’s forces.

forces were trying to keep Gadhafi’s troops from taking full control of a route linking central Misrata to its port, a critical lifeline for ships carrying humanitarian supplies into the battle zone just 100 miles southeast of the capital Tripoli. In the rebel stronghold of Benghazi in eastern Libya, meanwhile, angry crowds fired into the air and chanted against Gadhafi’s regime as militiamen killed in an accidental NATO airstrike were carried for burial. “The martyrs’ blood is not shed in vain!” cried some of the thousands of people gathered in central Benghazi to pray and mourn some of the dead from the attack on rebel tanks and vehicles.

Slain school kids buried

P

arents screamed in anguish and clung to coffins Friday as families began burying 12 children gunned down in the halls of their elementary school. A black police helicopter dropped white rose petals over mourners and a nation was left struggling for answers. More than a thousand people gathered for the first funerals, held at a cemetery atop a hill overlooking the working-class neighborhood where the school shooting took place a day earlier. “My love! My love!” screamed Noelia Rocha as the body of her 12-year-old daughter, Mariana, was placed in a white-walled cement tomb. As pallbearers placed a cover on top of the tomb, the mother wept uncontrollably before medical personnel on standby guided her away. Ten girls and two boys ranging in age from 12 to 15 were gunned down inside the Tasso da Silveira public school Thursday, most lined up along a wall and shot in the head at point-blank range.

Gulf oil device not tested

A senior official for the maker of the blowout preventer that failed to stop last year’s Gulf oil spill said Friday the device hadn’t been tested to see if it could cut through a bent drill pipe. The firm hired by the government to examine the 300-ton device after it was raised from the seafloor concluded the blind shear rams couldn’t pinch the well shut by cutting through the drill pipe. That’s because the pipe had been knocked off-center. The firm faulted the design of the Cameron-made blowout preventer. Cameron vice president David McWhorter told a federal investigative panel he couldn’t say if the device was designed to cut through a bent drill pipe. He said it wasn’t tested for that possibility before the disaster. SANAA, YEMEN

President rejects mediation

Yemen’s president rejected a mediation offer by Gulf nations that called on him to resign, denouncing the proposal in a speech before tens of thousands of cheering supporters in the capital Friday. Demonstrations around the country demanded his ouster and turned bloody in a southern city where three people were shot dead. The violence in Taiz took place during a burial procession. Witnesses said police fired tear gas and bullets and beat protesters carrying the coffins of several people killed during a demonstration last week. Three men were fatally shot, at least 10 others were seriously injured and hundreds of others suffered breathing problems, said Dr. Sadek al-Shuga, who was running a makeshift field hospital nearby.

BC’s ‘Today’ show has been one of the most stable and successful programs in the history of television over the past 15 years. Now it faces the possibility of a major makeover. By 2012, co-hosts Matt Lauer and Meridith Vieira will both have departed ‘Today,’ leaving no big stars on NBC’s No. 1-rated morning show, according to reports from Entertainment Tonight and TV Guide on Wednesday. Lauer reportedly plans to resign when his contract expires in December 2012, while Vieira’s contract could free her in September of this year. The timing of this news is interesting, since Lauer’s former ‘Today’ co-anchor Katie Couric is also said to be preparing her exit from ‘CBS Evening News’ later this year and has been in discussions with various networks, as well as former ‘Today’ show producer Jeff Zucker. Some are already speculating that Lauer is considering reuniting with Couric and Zucker on a new project.

Japan aftershock raises panic levels

Nearly a half-million homes were without electricity after the latest 7.1 aftershock hit. By JAY ALABASTER and TOMOKO A. HOSAKA Associated Press

ICHINOSEKI, Japan — Shoppers emptied store shelves, traffic snarled after stoplights lost power and drivers waited in long lines to buy gasoline in a new wave of anxiety Friday after a magnitude-7.1 aftershock struck disaster-weary northeastern Japan. Nearly a half-million homes were without electricity after the latest tremor, which dealt another setback for those

ma Dai-ichi plant, which has been spewing radiation since it was swamped by the tsunami. Power remained out Friday across much of northern Japan, including areas far inland, and homes were without gas and water. Gasoline was again scarce. Convenience stores sold out of basics like water and snack foods, and supermarkets switched back to rationing purchases. In Ichinoseki, 240 miles (390 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo, lines of 30 or more people formed outside the Marue supermarket starting when it opened at 9 a.m. With power out, each customer was escorted through the aisles by an employee with a flashlight and a pad, who jotted down the price of each item.

LONDON

Tabloid admits to hacking

One of Britain’s biggest-selling newspapers admitted Friday it was responsible for hacking into the phones of high-profile figures and eavesdropping on their voicemails — its first admission of liability in a case that has shaken the country’s political, police and media establishments. The News of The World tabloid said in a statement it had approached some of those suing the paper with “an unreserved apology and an admission of liability.” “We have also asked our lawyers to establish a compensation scheme with a view to dealing with justifiable claims fairly and efficiently,” the paper said. A spokeswoman for the paper, Daisy Dunlop, refused to say how many people were receiving an apology.

struggling to recover from the earthquake-spawned tsunami that wiped out hundreds of miles of the northeastern coast last month and killed as many as 25,000 people. “I feel helpless. I am back to square one,” said Ryoichi Kubo, 52, who had just finally reopened his gas station in hardhit Iwate prefecture (state) after the power outage and prolonged fuel shortage that followed the March 11 tsunami. Friday, he was again without electricity, his four gas pumps shut down. Three people died in Thursday’s aftershock, the worst since the day of the massive magnitude-9.0 quake. The latest tremor largely spared the nation’s nuclear power plants and there was no sign of fresh problems at the troubled Fukushi-

BEIRUT — A mass protest calling for sweeping changes in Syria’s authoritarian regime turned bloody Friday, with the government and protesters both claiming to have sustained heavy casualties as the country’s threeweek uprising entered a dangerous new phase.

It was the first significant claim of casualties by the Syrian government, which has contended that armed gangs rather than true reform-seekers are behind the unrest — and it could signal plans for a stepped-up retaliation. Protest organizers have called on Syrians to take to the streets every Friday for the past three weeks, demanding change in one of the most rigid nations in the Middle East. Protests were held in several cities across the country Friday as the movement showed no sign of letting up, despite the violent crackdowns. Syria’s National Organization for Human Rights said at least 32 people were killed nationwide on Friday. That lifts the death toll from three weeks of protests to more than 170 people.

French soldiers arrive to evacuate French citizen Friday in Ivory Coast.

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — France’s embassy to Ivory Coast said Friday that their ambassador’s residence was hit by artillery fired from positions held by forces supporting the country’s strongman, who refuses to emerge from a bunker at his residence next door to the French compound. Friday’s statement said two mortars and a rocket hit the residence Friday afternoon and it is the second such attack in 48 hours. The statement did not say if there were any injuries or casualties.

The statement also noted that a U.N. Security Council resolution would permit them to destroy the weapons used to target the French compound. Forces supporting the democratically elected president have tried for days to force strongman Laurent Gbagbo from his bunker, but he refuses to emerge or cede power. Internationally recognized president Alassane Ouattara imposed a blockade Friday around Gbagbo’s presidential residence, and said he’ll focus on normalizing life in this corpse-strewn, terrorized city. As the military standoff dragged on in Abidjan, there were new concerns Fri-

day about tensions erupting into deadly violence in the country’s west. The U.N. said more than 100 bodies have been found in the last 24 hours, and some of the victims had been burned alive. “All the incidents appear at least partly ethnically motivated,” said Rupert Colville, spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva. The International Rescue Committee is warning that chaos is permeating this West African nation once split in two by a 2002-2003 civil war, citing an “explosive mix of political, economic and ethnic tension.”

Barletta said the deal is "not perfect, but it is a good start. My friends and neighbors at home sent me to Washington to cut the wasteful spending, and this measure will do that." Democratic Sen. Bob Casey of Scranton said that, “Brinksmanship and short-term appropriations bills are no way to run a government. A government shutdown would hurt the economy and hurt Pennsylvanians.� Casey said that while he is pleased that a shutdown was averted, “the difficulties in performing the basic function of keeping the government operating does not bode well for the work ahead to create jobs and cut spending. In the future, I hope that common sense and bipartisan compromise can replace politics and posturing.� Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said that he “supported this short-term spending bill because Congress has finally acknowledged that it can no longer keep kicking the can down the road and a compromise has been reached for fiscal year 2011 funding. I am pleased that a government shutdown has been averted tonight and look forward to carefully reviewing the fiscal year 2011 spending bill when it arrives in the Senate.� Officials announced the agreement less than an hour before government funding was due to run out. Still under the gun, lawmakers raced to pass an interim measure to prevent a shutdown, however brief, and keep the federal machinery running for the next several days. Because drafting and then

lough notices for federal workers and warned that federal services from national parks to tax-season help centers would be shuttered without a deal by midnight. “We know the whole world is watching us today,� said Reid during a day that featured incendiary, campaign-style rhetoric as well as intense negotiation. Into the night, the two sides were still swapping proposals from opposite wings of the Capitol and Obama was on the phone from the White House with House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio. In a Capitol short on news but long on rumors, House Republican leaders circulated an early evening update to the rank and file: “We’d like to clear up some confusion and relay there has not yet been a deal reached, the negotiations are ongoing." “I was born with a glass half full,� Boehner told reporters, indicating optimism about a deal. Reid, Obama and Boehner all agreed a shutdown posed risks to an economy still recovering from the worst recession in decades. “Republican leaders in the

House have only a few hours left to look in the mirror, snap out of it and realize how positively shameful that would be,� Reid said at one point, accusing Republicans of risking a shutdown to pursue a radical social agenda. Hours later, officials said the talks centered on spending cuts in the range of $38 billion to $40 billion. But they stressed there was no accord on either an overall total or the composition of the reductions. Republicans and Democrats alike said the GOP appeared to be jettisoning a demand to block numerous Environmental Protection Agency regulations on polluters. A federal study of the likely economic impact of the agency’s rules was one possible alternative under discussion, they added. A Republican demand to make changes in a federal program that provides family planning services and women’s health care met withering criticism from Democrats. Unexpectedly, several conservative Republican senators urged their counterparts in the House not to shut the government down over the issue.

For much of the day, Reid and Boehner disagreed about what the disagreement was about. Reid said there had been an agreement at a White House meeting Thursday night to cut spending by about $38 billion as part of a bill to finance the government through the Sept. 30 end of the budget year. He said Republicans also were demanding unspecified cuts in

health services for lower income women that were unacceptable to Democrats. “Republicans want to shut down our nation’s government because they want to make it harder to get cancer screenings,� he said. “They want to throw women under the bus.� Boehner said repeatedly that wasn’t the case — it was spending cuts that divided two sides.

SHUTDOWN

passing the broader legislation could take days, congressional leaders raced to approve a stopgap measure to prevent the onset of the first shutdown in 15 years, due to begin at midnight. Officials said it would keep the government in funds through the middle of next week. Boehner told reporters just before 11 p.m. EDT that the House would continue working. Republicans said the deal called for $39 billion in spending cuts, a measure that one official said Boehner told his rank and file marked the “largest real-dollar spending cut in American history.� Over a decade, the agreement would cut more than $500 billion from the federal budget, Boehner added, according to a participant in the meeting. The agreement marked an extraordinary reach across party lines and the first test of a new era of divided government that includes Obama in the White House, control of the Senate by fellow Democrats and a tea partyflavored Republican majority in the House. The House and Senate were to rush through a stopgap bill until the broader bill could be finalized. Before the deal, the federal government lurched toward a shutdown for the first time in 15 years Friday night as President Barack Obama and congressional leaders groped for a last-minute compromise to cut tens of billions in federal spending and end the impasse. Republicans placed the House on standby for a late-night vote in case a decision was made to pass a stopgap bill to keep the government running for a few days to allow more time for negotiations.

Riccardi gets OK to refile lawsuit

At issue is the courtroom attack by a co-defendant in a 2009 homicide case. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

A federal magistrate judge recommended dismissing a lawsuit against the Luzerne County Sheriff and two deputies, but gave the inmate who sued them one more try at following court rules when filing a complaint. Elvis Aaron Riccardi’s failure to respond to the sheriff’s request that the suit be dismissed led to the recommendation by U.S. Magistrate Judge Martin Carlson. The parties in the case can file objections and a federal judge will rule on the matter. Acting as his own attorney, Riccardi sued Sheriff John Gilligan and deputies Brian Szumski

and Courtney Staley last year over the attack by Michael Simonson, his co-defendant in a homicide case. Riccardi While being brought back by the deputies from a bathroom break Simonson head butted Riccardi in a courtroom, according to the complaint. The deputies restrained both men and took Riccardi out of the courtroom. He was then treated by paramedics and transported to a hospital. Simonson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last August and was sentenced to life in prison for the 2009 robbery and beating death of Donald Skiff of Plymouth. Riccardi, who pleaded not guilty, is scheduled to go to trial on June 13 in county court.

In his complaint, Riccardi said, “I want the court to order the Luzerne County Sheriff’s Department to implement better safety measures so that I’m not attacked in the future. I want to be compensated for my physical injuries and mental damages.” Despite a court order to respond to the sheriff’s motion to dismiss, Riccardi did not comply, setting the stage for Carlson to review the issue. Carlson found that Riccardi ignored his responsibilities as a party in the complaint. Furthermore, Riccardi did not have a legitimate claim against the sheriff department, a factor that “weighs heavily in favor of the dismissal of this action,” Carlson wrote. When viewed liberally, Carlson wrote, the complaint raised a constitutional issue in that the sheriff’s staff failed to protect Ric-

PUBLIC RECORD

cardi from another inmate and showed deliberate indifference to his medical needs in violation to his Eighth Amendment rights against cruel and unusual punishment. However, Riccardi did not allege the defendants in the complaint knew of and disregarded an excessive risk to his safety, Carlson wrote. Riccardi also received medical treatment following the attack, Carlson said. Based on those facts, Riccardi’s complaint “amounts to little more than dissatisfaction with a course of medical treatment or a disagreement between an inmate and doctors over alternate treatment plans,” Carlson added. Still Carlson was reluctant to completely shut the door on Riccardi, recommending that he “be given another, final opportunity to further litigate this matter.”

hold the medication. The jury is expected to begin deliberating the case Monday after closing arguments and instructions from the judge. LaBrie’s son was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2006. The boy’s oncologist testified that she told LaBrie that the cancer had a cure rate of 85 percent to 90 percent under an intensive, two-year treatment plan. The boy required periodic hospitalizations and frequent visits to a hospital clinic, where he received chemotherapy treatments. LaBrie was instructed to give him two to three cancer medications at home. After months of treatment,

the boy’s cancer went into remission. But in February 2008, doctors discovered the cancer had returned in the form of leukemia and that LaBrie had not filled at least five months’ worth of prescriptions for her son’s cancer drugs. LaBrie remained composed through most of her testimony, showing emotion only once, when her lawyer asked her why did not give her son the drugs. "He was very, very sick and I was afraid, and I did not want to make him any sicker," she said, her voice quivering.

LAWRENCE, Mass. — A Massachusetts woman charged with attempted murder for withholding cancer treatment from her autistic son testified Friday that she did not give him at least five months of chemotherapy medications because the side effects made him so sick she was afraid the treatments would kill him. Kristen LaBrie, testifying for the second day at her attempted murder trial, said she mostly followed doctor’s orders during the first four phases of treatment for her son, Jeremy Fraser. But she said she stopped giving him his cancer medications during the

final phase of his treatment because she "didn’t want to make him any sicker." LaBrie said she told her son’s doctor two or three times that she was afraid "that he just had had it." "He was just not capable of getting through any more chemotherapy," LaBrie said. "I really felt that it could outvillainize the disease — the medicine could — because he was very, very fragile." LaBrie, 38, of Salem, is charged with attempted murder, child endangerment and assault and battery. Her son died at age 9 in 2009. The defense rested its case after LaBrie’s testimony Friday. Prosecutors also rested after calling one rebuttal witness, a psychiatrist who said he did not believe LaBrie was suffering from a mental impairment when she made the decision to with-

State senator’s appeal will delay retrial temporarily Jane Orie was scheduled to be retried Monday on conflict of interest and other charges.

By JOE MANDAK Associated Press

AP PHOTO

State Sen. Jane Orie, R-Allegheny, walks back to Allegheny County Courthouse after break in trial March 2.

PITTSBURGH — State Sen. Jane Orie should not be retried on public corruption charges because doing so would constitute double jeopardy, her lawyer said in a Superior Court appeal filed Friday that has at least temporarily delayed the retrial. Orie, R-Allegheny, was scheduled to be retried Monday on conflict of interest and other charges alleging she used her legislative staff to do campaign work for herself and her sister, State Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin, since 2001. Although the appeal was filed on behalf of Sen. Orie, it affects a third sister, Janine Orie, who is suspended from her job as Melvin’s aide and is set to be retried with the senator on charges she

also misused the senator’s staff, but only to benefit Melvin’s successful 2009 Supreme Court campaign. Allegheny County Judge Jeffrey Manning anticipated a Superior Court appeal and said in an order earlier this week that the retrial would be delayed until the higher court decided whether to take the case. If that happens, the retrial could be delayed for months. The appeal centers on Manning’s decision to declare a mistrial March 3 while jurors were deliberating in Orie’s first trial and his denial of defense motions earlier this week to bar a retrial or, failing that, to remove himself from the case. Manning declared the mistrial after agreeing with prosecutors that two defense documents used to discredit the trial’s key witness, Jamie Pavlot, Orie’s former chief of staff, were forgeries. In Friday’s appeal, Orie’s attorney, William Costopoulos, argued that it’s unfair to retry the senator because prosecutors had examined the documents Manning ruled were forgeries for days — and even

The judge “will have to make additional decisions concerning the admissibility of evidence, including and especially the admission of evidence regarding any allegedly ‘forged’ documents,” if a retrial occurs, the appeal said.

questioned Orie about an apparent “cutand-paste” signature on one of them during cross-examination — before accusing the defense of committing a "fraud on the court" in the second day of jury deliberations. The defense believes prosecutors raised the forgery issue “at the last hour to prevent Senator Orie’s jury from acquitting her of all charges,” the appeal said. “This is why the Double Jeopardy Clause was enacted first in the Pennsylvania Constitution and then in the United State (sic) Constitution: to prevent

prosecutors from getting a better, second chance at gaining a conviction,” it said. Orie’s attorney also wants Manning removed, claiming the judge can’t be fair after already holding the defense responsible for the purportedly forged documents. The judge “will have to make additional decisions concerning the admissibility of evidence, including and especially the admission of evidence regarding any allegedly ‘forged’ documents,” if a retrial occurs, the appeal said. Prosecutors couldn’t comment on the appeal because all parties in the case remain under a gag order Manning imposed last year. It wasn’t immediately clear if prosecutors would file an answer by day’s end. But they have already responded to the issues raised in the appeal in legal briefs that persuaded Manning earlier this week to reject the double jeopardy claim and motion to remove himself from the case.

HANOVER AREA

District eyes spending cuts

As a deficit looms, the school board cites voluntary employee separation. By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

HANOVER TWP. – At the Hanover Area School Board meeting Thursday evening, Business Administrator Tom Cipriano presented the school board with the most recent draft of the proposed budget for the 2011-2012 school year. He outlined a number of possible measures that would help reduce the district’s deficit of $1.5 million to just over a million. By cutting spending on a number of programs including sports and drama as well as classroom supplies and field trips, the district will save about $145,000 Cipriano said. Consolidating some

buildings will net $856,000 in savings. Several factors affect the budget, such as an 18 percent increase in health insurance and a 3 percent increase in pension fund costs for district employee. A voluntary employee separation program, which was introduced last month, will save the district approximately $445,000 if at least 17 faculty members participate. The program gives faculty members who choose to participate the option to retire or resign from the district early and receive a lump sum of $15,000 and a year of continued health insurance, if needed. These latest figures include a decrease in the proposed tax hike from 1.6 to .6 mills. The current millage is 6.2283. A mill is a $1 tax on every $1,000 of assessed property value. For each mill, the district brings in about $750,000,

the board said. “We’re definitely not done with this,” Cipriano said. “This is still a work in progress. We still have seven weeks to work on it. We all know the goal is to get this down to a zero increase.” Cipriano said during a meeting at the Luzerne Intermediate Unit last month no other school district representatives mentioned early retirement as a way to save money. “No district floated an idea that we’re not in the process of doing already,” he said. The district has until May 30 to finalize a budget.

OTHER OPINION: ELECTING JUDGES

Disorder rules in run for court

S

O YOU WANT to be a judge in Philadelphia? Pick a number. Pull out your wallet – or tap your lawyer and union friends for money. Then hold your nose. In the run-up to the May 17 primary, the free-for-all process of electing judges in the city and across Pennsylvania will play out in all its messy, haphazard and bare-knuckle glory. Every two years, these contests raise the same question: Why doesn’t the state switch to selecting judges based on merit, rather than partisan elections that make no sense on many levels? Consider that a candidate’s best political asset could have nothing to do with his or her legal acumen, and more to do with his or her name or ballot

position, which is decided by lottery. Experience also shows that candidates have to get down in the mud if they want to win, paying handsome fees to political advisers without flinching over their methods or possibly unsavory pasts. (One notable adviser working this year’s election is a former congressman who went away for taking a bribe.) For funding, candidates raid their own bank accounts or, more likely, raise money from lawyers who might bring cases before them in court. Since a serious contender will need as much as $100,000 or more, that puts them at risk of real or perceived conflicts long before they ever don a black robe. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Japan’s recovery hinges on improved additions to capital WITH MORE than 12,000 dead and many more still missing from the worst earthquake, tsunami and nuclear-power disasters to ever hit Japan, it is difficult to fathom the overall effect this tragedy will have on the Japanese people, their economy and their well-being. The human toll from the damaged nuclear reactors in the Kanto region of the country will not be known for years, as the power plants continue to emit radioactive waste weeks after the disaster. After paying their respects to neighbors, friends and family members, many Japanese families are faced with the daunting task of rebuilding their lives and entire towns. City Investment Research has estimated it will cost $200 billion to $300 billion to rebuild the damaged physical structures alone. With the Japanese economy accounting for almost 9.7 percent of the world’s output, the disasters will be felt worldwide. To date, production losses to the Japanese economy already have reached into the billions and Toyota plans to cut production by more than 40,000 vehicles. Automobile production also is being hampered in the United States due to the lack of parts being shipped from Japan. In many ways, it seems heartless to deal with the figures of economic production and rebuilding at a time when the Japanese people are still burying their dead, and images of helpless people mourning their loved ones remain very much in our minds and in our hearts. Recovery, though, has been a way of life for the Japanese people who suffered and recovered from the Kobe earthquake of 1995 and the devastation at the end of World War II. So it is partially in homage to the resiliency

COMMENTARY MICHAEL A. MACDOWELL of the Japanese people and partially based on the contention that disasters stimulate economic growth that pundits and economists have commented on the long-term economic growth potential resulting from disasters such as this. Larry Summers, the former secretary of the Treasury and now professor of economics at Harvard University, told television audiences that the earthquake and its aftermath “may lead to some temporary increments and, ironically, to increased GDP (gross domestic product) as the process of rebuilding takes place.” He reminded us that in the wake of the earlier Kobe earthquake, “Japan actually gained some economic strength.” In an opinion piece in the Bloomberg newsletter, writer and economist Caroline Baum points to some of the fallacies in the traditional economic reasoning that suggests disasters create wealth for a nation. She takes Summers to task with the philosophy that “rebuilding would be good for Japan and that spending creates prosperity.” It is true that spending, particularly on public works and new capital, can create jobs and income for workers. This economic reality was summarized by John Maynard Keynes in his 1936 book, “The Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.” He wrote, “Pyramidbuilding, earthquakes, even wars may serve to increase wealth and cure voluntary unemployment.” There are many people who point to the American experience of the 1930s and ’40s to suggest that Keynes was correct. They say

Who benefits when a house burns down and it is rebuilt? Clearly, the carpenters, electricians and plumbers who rebuild it do. But the wealth of the region is increased only when the house that replaces it is a better home. it was not the New Deal’s significant expenditures in public works that ended the Great Depression, but rather the immense investment it took to win World War II. Japan is a capital-intensive country – that is, its workers have much more capital and technology per capita than do workers in lesserdeveloped countries. This means that Japan will have to make major investments in capital before its economy can grow again. That will be difficult for a country that is still recovering from its market bubble of 1994. With a debt to the GDP ratio almost twice that of the United States, Japan faces a very daunting task in gaining the financial capital to rebuild its physical capital. Even if this is accomplished, it will only be the net improved additions to the capital that will make the country more productive. Who benefits when a house burns down and it is rebuilt? Clearly, the carpenters, electricians and plumbers who rebuild it do. But the wealth of the region is increased only when the house that replaces it is a better home. Japan will need to invest in better and more capital in order to gain the productivity it needs to remain competitive in the global economy. Michael A.

was dismayed to read The Times Leader’s article on the proposed project to narrow River Street in Wilkes-Barre to two lanes (April 3). Who was the genius who decided that one of the most used streets in town, and one of the gateways, should be narrowed to accommodate more pedestrians? We have seen in the last year what traffic is like on that street when construction has limited southbound traffic to one lane. Please find another way to accommodate pedestrians. Implementing this plan will force more vehicle traffic through the Square and be to the detriment of all. Larry Peterson Ashley

icent palace. However, it has been shuttered for some time, without heat or electricity, which certainly has led to deterioration. While I applaud people for their desire to save the hotel, I am fearful that it is beyond repair. However, before any decision is made, I would love for WBRE-TV or WNEP-TV to film the interior of the hotel so everyone can see its condition. Perhaps then a conclusion can be reached based on fact and not conjecture. If it can be repaired, then a dollar amount must be assigned and a developer found. If it cannot, maybe some of the marble or other parts of the hotel could be saved and put into a new building for all to enjoy. The location alone makes it important to find the right plan for this area. It should be something that will make all Valley residents proud. Ellyn Salmon Forty Fort

TL attorney asks judge to release Toole’s AA letters Toole’s attorney, Frank Nocito, contends the letters should remain private.

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – An attorney for The Times Leader has asked a federal judge to reconsider his decision to withhold

some of the letters written relating to the sentencing of former Luzerne County Judge Michael Toole. Attorney Ralph Kates on Friday wrote to U.S. District Judge Richard P. Conaboy seeking the release of letters written by members of Alcoholics Anonymous and an alcohol counselor who treated Toole. The letters were among 156

that Conaboy received regarding Toole’s sentencing on Friday on charges of corrupt receipt of a reward for official action and tax evasion. Conaboy on Thursday agreed to release letters that had been written by public officials, co-workers, neighbors and friends. He withheld letters written by certain family members of Toole’s, as well as

members of Alcoholics Anonymous and the alcohol counselor based on privacy concerns. Conaboy gave attorneys the chance provide additional arguments regarding the Alcoholics Anonymous and counselor letters, which he indicated he might release at a later date. Toole’s attorney, Frank Nocito, contends the letters from

Alcoholics Anonymous members should remain private because they wrote them under the assumption their identities would not be revealed. The counselor’s letter should also remain private because it contains medical information about Toole, Nocito said. In asking Conaboy to reconsider, Kates said the letters should be released because

Kingston, where she represents plaintiffs in complex civil cases, including civil rights and personal injury cases. If elected, Gelb said she would support the use of individual calendars for judges to follow a case from beginning to end, because currently in county court several judges handle many different aspects of cases, having to familiarize themselves with the case repeatedly. “It’s extremely inefficient,” Gelb said. What could be efficient for Luzerne County, Gelb said, is if filing systems went electronic, getting rid of expenses paid for postage, storage and paper use. Gelb said she also liked the idea of Central Court at the district magistrate level, but said it could be run more efficiently. For the primary, Gelb said she expects to spend between $80,000 and $100,000, and pledges to take no contributions from lawyers. “People in the county want money out of the system,” Gelb said. “It gives the impression of impropriety.” Gelb spoke extensively of her community service throughout the years to Wyoming Valley organizations, including having worked with the Diversity Institute at Misericordia University, as a White House volunteer in the 1980s and serving on the committees for two local libraries. She has also served on the State Democratic Committee and on the Pennsylvania Election Reform Task Force. “People who know me know I’m fair,” Gelb said. “My job would be to keep the playing field even.”

He explained traditional bath salts for the tub sells for about $2, while the synthetic substance sells around $40 for a half-gram.

ty to benefit workers or another person. Letters not on county letterhead also came from court reporters Cynthia L. Rachilla, Lisa Tratthen and Christine Yaros; adult probation officers Brian Joseph Leighton and Eugene E. Duffy Jr.; and Domestic Relations Deputy Director Kevin J. Kane. The county’s court policy says court employees “shall not testify voluntarily as character witnesses.” Speaking generally, Burke said this clause may not apply because submission of a letter is “quite different than testimony given under oath in a judicial proceeding.” Prohibition of leniency letters must be “considered very carefully” because workers also have a First Amendment right to free speech, Burke said. Judges, their law clerks and personal staff are prohibited from voluntarily testifying as character witnesses by the Code of Judicial Conduct. “Although judges are generally held to a stricter standard in these situations, it would not seem that court personnel -- other than law clerks and members of a judge’s personal staff – should be prohibited from offering a factual assessment of what their personal experiences have been,” Burke said. Two county public defender office employees – attorneys Jonathan Blum and Charles Ross Jr. – also wrote letters on Toole’s behalf. That office is not part of the court system. Chief Public Defender Al Flora said he has no problem with their letters, and their action does not violate any office, county or ethics policies. “That is a personal matter for them to deal with. It’s outside the office. Those two individuals can make their own decision on that. It doesn’t impact the operation of the office at all,” Flora said.

Klein said more than $25,000 worth of bath salts was purchased during an undercover sting of retailers in Lackawanna County Thursday night. Hanover Township Police Chief Al Walker said a recent inquiry of retailers in his municipality turned up negative for bath salt sales.

Musto Carroll also noted two women high on bath salts while driving a car with two young children in Wilkes-Barre. Klein said a person hallucinating on bath salts in Lackawanna County jumped out a third floor window when he heard a knock on his door, and another person believed demons were living inside him.

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – With their spots in the postseason clinched long ago, it would’ve been understandable if the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the Hershey Bears turned the intensity down a notch during their matchup on Friday. But there is one problem: they really don’t like each other. Friday’s contest had all the makings of a playoff game - intensity, end-toend action and plenty of bad blood. A slow start by the PenBEARS guins allowed Hershey to take an early lead and rely on the goalPENGUINS tending of Braden Holtby, who stopped 24 of 25 shots, to fall to the Bears 2-1.The loss drops the Penguins to 56-21-0-1 on the season and 7-2 against Hershey. “We came out with a slow start, they jumped us and got the lead and we were playing from behind the whole night. We have to play a full 60 minutes against a team like that,” said defenseman Andrew Hutchinson. Hershey struck first midway through the opening period when Bears winger Andrew Kozek stole the puck from Andrew Hutchinson in front of the Penguins net, turned and fired a shot past Brad Thiessen for a 1-0 lead.The Bears went up 2-0 in the second period when Kozek scored his second of the night by stickhandling through the slot and placing a wrist shot past Thiessen. After that, head coach John Hynes called a timeout and the Penguins responded with a rejuvenated effort. They narrowed Hershey’s lead when Bryan Lerg’s shot was blocked in front and bounced out to Brett Sterling in the right faceoff circle, who laced a shot past Braden Holtby to cut the Bears’ advantage to 2-1. Sterling had an opportunity to tie the game when he was hooked from behind on a breakaway and issued a penalty shot – the first one for the Penguins this season.

I don’t need to know. “It will be great for the tournament if he’s up there,” he said. “But I’m two shots ahead and I’m in a better position.” Rory McIlroy Besides, the greater mystery On Tiger Woods might be Woods. He has teased before in the 17 months since his last win. Even a year ago at Augusta, he was two shots back going into the weekend and never got any closer. The 14time major champion has not been able to string together two great rounds since he made his return from a sex scandal last year at the Masters. “I’m just trying to put myself in the mix come Sunday,” Woods said. “It’s irrelevant who’s there.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Everyone could hear Tiger Woods charging on the back nine of Augusta National, with tree-rattling cheers after each of his five birdies as he made a familiar run up the leaderboard. The question is whether the two youngsters ahead of him really cared. Rory McIlroy, the 21-year-old from Northern Ireland, had already finished off his solid round of 3under 69 Friday at the Masters. That gave him a two-shot lead over Jason Day, a 23-year-old from Australia, who showed off some of his fearless play with a 64. It’s the first time McIlroy has held the lead in a major going into the weekend. And now he’s got Woods only three shots behind. The kid didn’t seem too concerned. “If you start thinking about anyone else here, if you let your mind wander at all, it can cost you a couple of shots,” McIlroy said. “I’ll be focusing on See MASTERS, Page 4B

ROUND 2 GLANCE LEADING: Rory McIlroy followed his 65 with a 69 and held onto the top spot with a 10-under total of 134. PURSUING: Jason Day, who shot the low round — 64 — is two back at 136, followed by Tiger Woods and K.J. Choi at 137. And Phil? Defending champ Phil Mickelson is among 10 players tied for 20th at 2-under 144. SHOT OF THE DAY: Woods hit an 8-iron from the right rough 150 yards to set up a 12-foot putt for last of his nine birdies on the day.

Ramirez served a 50-game ban for violating the drug policy in 2009, and second-time offenders get double that penalty. “We were obviously surprised when we found out about it today, and hurt by what transpired,” said Rays vice president Andrew Friedman, who signed Ramirez to a $2 million, one-year contract in the offseason. “We were cautiously optimistic that he would be able to be a force for us.” A person familiar with the situation confirmed to The Associated Press that the 12-time

NEW YORK — Manny Ramirez walked away from baseball on Friday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug, abruptly ending the mercurial career of one of the most talented — and tainted — hitters to ever play the game.

Manny Ramirez retired from baseball.

FORGIVE THE MASTERS today for making sure that Amen Corner hasn’t turned into a mosh pit and its green jackets haven’t become hoodies. Forgive the Masters today for presenting its first-round coleader with a comb and a word of caution. “Street football? At night? Really?” Just as America’s most starched sports event is surely wary of Rory McIIroy, the rest of us should love him. All freckles and biceps and laughs, the 21year-old Northern Irish mop top was a jolt of youth flowing across the Augusta National course Thursday and Friday to the stares of the green-hairs and howls of the cigar set. On a billowy blue afternoon, he shot an equally gorgeous 65 in front of kids, pals and many empty seats of those who had walked away to find Tiger or Phil. He had seven birdies and no bogeys during a midday stroll that included almost constant conversations with his two young playing partners about all sorts of important things. “Cars, boats, anything but golf, really,” McIlroy said. And, believe it or not, dude, he prepared for this Wednesday night by doing something that is not allowed on this course, or, it turns out, even on his own block. McIlroy and some buddies drove to a mall. They bought this strange thing known as a football. They went home and began throwing it in the cul-desac in front of their rental home. “Sort of got into American football from being over here, and just wanted to learn how to throw it a little bit better,” McIlroy said. So, were you running some pass patterns, I asked. “I don’t even know what that means,” he said. Ah, but soon he learned about breaking off a route early. With darkness arriving and their voices rising, a neighbor walked out of her house and ordered the kids to knock it off. “I was actually told off by the lady living across the street; we were making a bit too much noise,” he said. “Had to cut it short.”

ALLENTOWN - Don’t fret too much over the sour, rainshortened, season-opening series for the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees. They’re sure much brighter days are still to come. But it was a rainy day in Allentown that postponed Friday’s scheduled game of the season between the Yankees and Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

McIlroy is calm, cool, collective

Youngsters hanging around The woman spoke not only for herself, but for 75 years of Masters lore. McIlroy, who shared the lead with Alvaro Quiros after the first round, was the youngest first-round coleader in tournament history, but at some point, chances are, somebody around here is going to shoo him home. If McIlroy can hang on for two more days, he would become the second-youngest Masters winner. Since Tiger Woods set the record in 1997, only three of 13 championships have been won by someone under 30 — Woods twice and Trevor Immelman. In 74 previous tournaments, only 17 champions have been under 30. “But at least for today, Rory couldn’t do anything wrong out there, and it was really nice to see,” said Rickie Fowler, his 22-year-old playing partner, who, with 23-year-old Jason Day, helped turned their threesome into a bit of a walking frat party. Fowler, a former dirt bike champion from Murrieta, Calif., showed up dressed entirely in green, even the oversized cap that smothered his unruly hair.

Condeelis, Tigers turn back Warriors

Continued from Page 1B

During the penalty shot, Sterling skated in on Holtby, went across the crease and tried to roof the puck high but was denied with a leg pad save. “I have to bury that. That’s what I’m here for,” Sterling said. The Penguins had several more chances to even things up during a physical third period. Lerg had a goal waived off after Sterling and Holtby had a scrum in the crease at 5:18.Sterling was whistled for goaltender interference, Holtby received a roughing minor and the Penguins still trailed by one.Sterling said he didn’t think he bumped Holtby during the play. “I thought the only guy I bumped into was the defenseman. I thought it was a clean play, didn’t think I hit the goalie but the ref saw otherwise,” he said. “The call is what it is, but he’s (Holtby) worried about me when I’m standing a foot away from him. Nothing I could do about it.” Two minutes later, things got ugly when Keven Veilleux raced deep into the Bears end with Hershey’s Steve Pinizzotto on his back. As they reached the boards, Veilleux turned around and slashed Pinizzotto, causing a scrum that drew Holtby out of the crease to join the fray. Veilleux was issued a match penalty for slashing while Holtby earned a slashing minor. The Bears ended up with three minutes of power play time but were unable to get anything past Brad Thiessen. As the power play ticked away, Sterling had his third chance of the night when he skated in on

WEST PITTSTON – Tunkhannock’s early lead held up for a 7-0 win over Wyoming Area in a game that was called after five innings Friday due to rain. Rich Condeelis scattered three hits over five innings and struck out six to earn the win on the mound while also doubling in two runs. Mike Papi also knocked in two runs for the Tigers. DON CAREY

Holtby, drew him to the far post and again tried to roof a shot but was denied with a pad save. The Penguins had one last ditch effort to tie things during a Hershey power play with one minute left in the game when Lerg was sprung on a breakaway and just missed putting home a backhand shot over a sprawling Holtby. “There’s a certain way you have to go about things. We didn’t do that the first half of the game and we paid the price for it,” Hynes said. “When we decided to get to our game, it was there for our taking. The second half of the game we had every opportunity to tie and win the game.” NOTES- Veilleux’s match penalty will be reviewed by the AHL to determine if a suspension

should be issued. Hynes wasn’t worried about losing his winger. “I don’t think he will get a suspension. They were going back and forth on the ice. It was really minor and Pinizzotto was back on the ice two minutes later,” Hynes said. “It was a minor play, the ref made a good call and it shouldn’t be anything to significant.”- Winger Geoff Walker left the game in the second period clutching his arm. He was in a sling after the game but Hynes said the incident was minor and Walker should be fine… D Reid McNeill, D Viktor Ekbom, D Steve Wagner (injury), C Andy Bathgate, LW Tim Wallace (injury), F David Marshall and F Ryan Schnell were scratched for the Penguins.

Sabres rattle faltering Flyers The Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Thomas Vanek scored 1:16 into overtime to cap a two-goal comeback and clinch the Buffalo Sabres a playoff berth with a 4-3 victory over the slumping Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night. Vanek finished with a goal and two assists, while Nathan Gerbe scored twice, including a highlight reel spin-around goal that tied it midway through the third period. The Sabres had already secured a postseason spot by earning a point when the game entered overtime. With the win, they’ve clinched at least seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings. Danny Briere and Scott Hartnell had a goal and assist, and Kris Versteeg also scored for Philadelphia, which is winless in its past five games (0-3-2).

Islanders to avenge a recordsetting, fight-filled loss. The Penguins seemed to have things well in hand until Travis Hamonic got the Islanders even at 3 with just 35 seconds left in regulation with a shot from the left point that got past goalie Marc-Andre Fleury after New York pulled goalie Al Montoya for an extra skater. The Islanders had nearly tied it with 1:38 left, but Matt Moulson’s goal was disallowed because John Tavares was in the crease.

Lightning 4, Panthers 2 TAMPA, Fla. — Vincent Lecavalier had two goals, including one on a penalty shot, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Florida Panthers. Lecavalier put the Lightning up 3-1 when he deked goalie Scott Clemmensen to ice and Penguins 4, Islanders 3, SO lifted home a wrist shot on his penalty shot at 1:27 of the secUNIONDALE, N.Y. — Chris ond. The Tampa Bay captain Kunitz scored the only goal in the shootout and the Pittsburgh also had a first-period powerplay goal. Penguins beat the New York

Ryan Malone and Pavel Kubina also scored for the Lightning, who will be making their first postseason appearance since 2007. Florida got goals from Jason Garrison and Mike Santorelli.

The six-time Masters champion gave Schwartzel invaluable advice before the South African’s first appearance at Augusta National last year, talking him through the course. Nicklaus “took me through every single hole the way he used to play it,” Schwartzel said. “You can’t get much better advice than that. ... I was in such awe.” Schwartzel has put the advice to good use, shooting par or better in four of his six rounds at the Masters. His 71 on Friday left him at 4 under, six strokes behind leader Rory McIlroy.

All-Star tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the nature of Ramirez’s issue with MLB’s drug policy was not publicly disclosed. The commissioner’s office announced Ramirez’s decision in a statement, but provided few details. “Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program,” the statement said. “Ramirez has informed MLB that he is retiring as an active player. If Ramirez seeks reinstatement in the future, the process under the Drug Program will be completed.”

My whole job is to get myself there with a chance with nine holes to go. That’s what we’ve always done. And I’ve been successful at it in the past by doing it that way.” If his name on the leaderboard means anything, today might be a time to find out. And if the next generation of players is serious about becoming a star, the Masters would be a great place to prove it. “I’ve played two good rounds to get myself here in this position,” said Day, who is making his Masters debut. “Obviously, I’m not going to back down because I’ve got lack of experience.” McIlroy, Day and 22-year-old Rickie Fowler, who shot 69 and was five shots behind, played in the same group the first two rounds and made it look like child’s play at the Masters. All of them were inspired by Woods winning the ’97 Masters by a record 12 shots at age 21. Told they were 7, 8 and 9 years old at the time, Woods bowed his head and shook his head in disbelief. “A little older now, I guess,” he said. “It’s the next generation. It’s good to see these guys out here playing with that much enthusiasm and that much zest for the game. And that’s good.” But it also could present quite a challenge. McIlroy was at 10-under 134, the lowest 36-hole score at the Masters since 2005. He has tied for third in the last two majors, although this will be his first time in the final group on the weekend at one of golf’s biggest event. It looked as though he might build a big lead going into the weekend until he stalled on the back nine, and now10 players are within five shots of the lead on an Augusta National course where positions can change quickly. K.J. Choi three-putted for bogey on the 18th for a 70 and put him tied with Woods at 7-under 137. Another shot back was former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy, who overcame a four-

PHILADELPHIA — Elton Brand scored 22 points, Thaddeus Young had 20 and the Philadelphia 76ers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 98-93 win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. Andre Iguodala scored 16 points for the Sixers, who could still finish sixth in the Eastern Conference. The Sixers had already clinched their first playoff apperance in two years. With 41 wins and two games left, the Sixers can finish with a winning record for the first time since 2004-05. They went 41-41 two years ago. AP PHOTO

Rory McIlroy hits a drive on the 14th hole during the second round of the Masters Friday in Augusta, Ga. Woods is just three shots off the lead entering today’s play.

putt double bogey and a threeputt bogey on par 5s for another 69. He was tied with big-hitting Alvaro Quiros, who had a 73. Fred Couples, the 51-year-old wonder at Augusta, somehow got into the mix, bad back and all. Couples shot a 68 and was in the group at 139 that included former PGA champion Y.E. Yang (72), Fowler and Lee Westwood, the runner-up at Augusta last year who got back into the mix with a 67. Experience never hurts at the Masters. “I’m playing my 12th one. I don’t know how many they are playing, but I don’t think it’s that many,” Westwood said. “I’ve been in the situation before, probably more recently than anybody around this golf course. I think it’s a big advantage.” Then again, Colin Montgomerie said the same thing when he was paired with a 21-year-old Woods in 1997 going into the weekend. Woods blew him away with a 65 and was on his way to a 12-shot victory. It doesn’t figure to be that easy for McIlroy, even as easy as he has made it look over two days.

His swing looked strong as ever when he pounded a driver on the fifth hole, leaving him a wedge that he hit to 6 feet for birdie, and another big tee shot set up a sand wedge to the back pin on No. 9 to 4 feet. He bounced back from his lone bogey with a 6-iron into about 10 feet for eagle on the 13th, though he missed the putt. McIlroy never put himself under much pressure. He was having so much fun that he wasn’t even paying attention to Day, one of his playing partners, who was slashing out of the pine straw and firing at flags, piling up one birdie after another. “We had a lot of fun out there,” McIlroy said. “I didn’t even realize Jason was going so good. I saw he was 6 under on the 15th and thought, ‘This is going to be a decent round.’ We just fed off each other. The crowd got behind us.” McIlroy, Day and Fowler were quite the group — ages 21, 22 and 23. The more important number was 18 birdies they made. McIlroy’s only regret was not making as many putts as he would have liked.

“I can’t really complain,” he said. “I’m in the lead going into the weekend at the Masters.” He’s just not in the clear. Woods made sure of that with three straight birdies around the turn — all of them inside 4 feet — a clutch par save on the 11th and three consecutive birdies starting on the 13th, again all of them from close range. “I played myself back in the tournament,” Woods said. “I’m three back, and we’ve got a long way to go. It’s going to be fun.” Phil Mickelson has far more work to do. The defending champion played more aggressively, but failed to save par too often when he missed the green. Mickelson also failed to birdie the par 5s on the back nine and had to settle for a 72 that put him eight shots behind. “There’s a lot of golf left in this tournament, and I’m going to be making a run at him and the other guys ahead of me,” Mickelson said. Asked what gives him confidence he can make a move, Mickelson replied, “Three green jackets.”

MLB said it would have no further comment. The 38-year-old outfielderdesignated hitter with 555 career home runs left the Rays earlier this week to attend to what the team called a family matter. Manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that he expected Ramirez to be available for Friday night’s game at Chicago, but he never showed up. “Of course you’re disappointed,” Maddon said at U.S. Cellular Field. “But at the end of the day, he has to make up his own mind. It’s a choice he has to make.” Ramirez played in only five games for the Rays, with one hit in 17 at-bats, and flied out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday. He had a strong spring training, then was excused from the last exhibition game for personal reasons. “It’s unfortunate,” said Tampa

Bay outfielder Johnny Damon, who helped the Boston Red Sox end an 86-year title drought by winning the 2004 World Series, in which Ramirez was the Most Valuable Player. “I don’t know everything that’s been brought up. All I know is he’s a great teammate and a great player,” Damon said, when asked specifically about the steroid allegations. “It’s going to be sad not seeing Manny Ramirez ever around a baseball field.” A schoolboy legend on the streets of New York, Ramirez was selected 13th overall by the Cleveland Indians in the 1991 amateur draft and rose quickly through the minor leagues, with a youthful exuberance and natural charisma that endeared him to just about everyone he met. He broke into the majors in 1993 and played his first full season the following year, when he

finished second to the Royals’ Bob Hamlin in voting for Rookie of the Year. He went on to establish himself as one of the game’s most feared hitters, adopting a dreadlock hairdo that seemed to mirror his happy-go-lucky demeanor — both on the field and off. Ramirez signed with the Red Sox as a free agent in December 2000. He helped the long-suffering franchise win the World Series and again in 2007. “It’s sad, man, to see a player with that much talent and with an unbelievable career get him out of the game,” Red Sox slugger David Ortiz said. “He got his issues like a lot of people know, but, as a player, I think he did what he was supposed to.” The Red Sox wearied of those issues, though — Ramirez’s erratic behavior, his enigmatic personality — and traded him to the Dodgers in July 2008.

Heat 112, Bobcats 103 MIAMI — Chris Bosh had 27 points and 10 rebounds, and Dwyane Wade returned from injury to score 27 and help Miami maintain its tie with Boston for second place in the East. LeBron James added 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for Miami, which won for the 12th time in 15 games and faces the Celtics on Sunday. Celtics 104, Wizards 88 BOSTON — Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 14 assists, and Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett also had double-doubles for Boston, which remains tied with Miami for No. 2 in the East. Pierce had 22 points and 12 rebounds, and Garnett added 15 points and 11 boards. Ray Allen had 13 points, but was just 1 for 6 from 3-point range. Andray Blatche led the Wizards with 20 points and 10 rebounds, John Wall scored 20 and Jordan Crawford 19.

which was limited to one game Thursday’s 7-2 defeat to the IronPigs. “We did our best,” Yankees catcher Jesus Montero said. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre promised it will get better, as the team headed off for a two-game series in Rochester that opens today. “This year, the team is very good,” Yankees outfielder Greg Golson said. “Good pitchers, good (infield) corners, great outfield, can’t say enough about the shortstop position. I’m excited about this year.” Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s opening-day excitement was tempered when it scored just twice Thursday, and watched Lehigh Valley go to 1-0 - moving over the .500 mark and into first place in

Bulls 93, Cavaliers 82 CLEVELAND — Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 11 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Despite the outcome, the Yankees felt they made progress through defeat. “We’ve got some players who got to play for the first time in awhile, and guys who got some work,” said Miley, whose club played just one game over the final week of minor league spring training. The Yankees also eliminated the jitters that hit players every opening day of the season. “We got the first game out of the way,” Golson said. “That’s the biggest thing.” Now, the Yankees look for bigger things to come. “We got to know each other,” Montero said. “We’ve got good players in here, got a good team. “We’re going to do some damage soon.”

Hobey Baker Memorial Award winner Andy Miele, from Miami of Ohio, poses with the trophy on Friday.

Scoring title helps star Miele land Hobey Baker The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Andy Mielescoredonhisfirstshiftat Miami (Ohio). Four years later, the star forward won the Hobey Baker Memorial Award as the top player in college hockey. “I never thought I’d win the Hobey,” Miele said Friday night. “I’m very lucky.” The 5-foot-8, 175-pounder topped the nation in scoring with 71 points — 24 goals and an NCAA-best 47 assists — in 39 games. His points total was 11 more than any other player andthemostinDivisionIsince 2002-03. He had at least one point in 33 games and multiple points in 22. He tied a school record with a 17-game points streak from Jan. 8 to March19. “I expected to have a successful season, but to get up over 70 points is not one of the things I thought I’d do,” said Miele, from Grosse Pointe Woods, Mich. “That’s what happens when you work hard and you stick to your goals and your dream and you never give up and never get down on yourself.” Coach Enrico Blasi wasn’t surprised by the numbers. “Everything just kind of clicked for him. You could tell in practice that he could do whatever. He was always one of the hardest working guys on our team.”

PLASCHKE Continued from Page 1B

After leading the Redhawks to their first Central Collegiate Hockey Association tournament title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament — where they were upset by New Hampshire — Miele signed a free agent entry-level deal with the Phoenix Coyotes last Saturday. “I’m going out to San Jose with them tomorrow, and if nothing can happen in the standings where a win or loss doesn’t mean anything to them, hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to play,” he said. Mieledeftlypassescreditfor his success to his linemates just as easily as he passes them the puck for goals. Miele played with three different playersthroughouttheseason: Riley Smith, Carter Camper and Trent Vogelhuber. “The click that we had together was unbelievable,” Miele said. “We always knew where each other was, we never got down on each other and never doubted each other. We really stepped up when we had to and that’s where a lot of the team success came from.” Miele’s unselfishness isn’t lost on Blasi. “When he says he wants to share this with his teammates, that’s the truth and that’s the way we’ve created the culture in our program to do it together,” Blasi said.

PGA Championship, and starred for Europe in the Ryder Cup, so his emergence here should be a surprise to few, especially him. After all, he is the first young player so openly unafraid of the once almighty Tiger Woods. Before last year’s Ryder Cup, McIlroy said of Woods, “I would love to face him.” In a recent essay for Sports Illustrated, he wrote of Woods, “I’m not sure we are going to see him dominate again the way he did. ... He’s playing like an ordinary golfer.” I can now second that opinion. As I walked the course in search of McIlroy early Thursday afternoon, I was stopped by a threesome playing several hundred yards down the fairway. The crowds were small and solemn, and it wasn’t until one person shouted, “Go Tiger” that I realized Woods was one of the golfers. Woods, who hasn’t won in 17 months, finished the first round tied for 23rd with perhaps his quietest 71 ever. It’s truly as if he’s become just another Nike shirt. I watched Woods pass and continued on my way, following the trademark Augusta roars, which are surely blushing today at being described as Rorys.

It looked hideous, which, of course, meant Fowler thought it looked cool. When asked if that color was Masters green, Fowler chirped, “That was the only reason we made it ... how is that?” When asked how he would wear that awful cap if he won the tournament, he said, “Well, around here, it’s forward.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Denny Hamlin is hoping for another turning point in Texas since the anticipated trip to another one of his best tracks only brought more bad luck. Hamlin goes for his third consecutive win at the 11⁄2-mile, highbanked Texas Motor Speedway tonight. An untimely caution at Martinsville last week took him from the front of the pack to a lap down and a 12th-place finish, ending his threerace winning streak at the half-mile, paperclip-shaped track in his home state of Virginia. “For me, the panic level is not that high, but it is creeping there because ultimately it’s not about the number of points that you’re behind 10th at this point, it’s how many guys separate you from that,” said Hamlin, who is 19th in points. “In my head, I know that we’re going to run well.” Last April, Hamlin limped into Texas following surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee. He won the race, and later called it the “turning point” in his season when he finished a career-best second in points and doubled his victory total from eight to 16. Hamlin said his No. 11 Toyota has plenty of speed, but has been hampered by fuel mileage and some pit issues that can also be corrected. “It’s not like we’re going out and we’re scratching our heads and we don’t have the speed,” he said. “Things look worse in results than what we’re actually performing on the race track.” Another reason for optimism is that Kyle Busch, his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, is the points leader and has led at least151laps in each of the last three races. Busch has a win and three other top-three finishes through six races. “We’re under the same roof, and I have those same race cars,” Hamlin said. “His pit crew has been phe-

nomenal and all that stuff, and it makes it look so good on the race track when you can have those solid stops. That’s something that we’ve struggled with, our inconsistency, and obviously fuel mileage. ... Those couple of little small details is what makes us look so far apart.” The only driver with three Cup victories at Texas Motor Speedway is Carl Edwards, second in points behind Busch heading into the first night race of this season — and the first ever under the big, bright stars in the Lone Star State. Kevin Harvick, who has finished top10 in half of his16 Texas starts, is coming off consecutive wins this season. That has given him some leeway under NASCAR’s new qualifying standards for the 12-drive Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, and could eventually change his approach over the next 20 races until the Chase. Two wild-cards will be given to drivers with the most wins not ranked in the top 10, and two wins would have been enough last year. “I don’t think we will race any different when we are at the race track because we are here to win races and get the best finish that you can,” Harvick said. ‘But I think as a team it

Earnhardt got his first Sprint Cup and Nationwide victories at Texas, where he has led 446 laps in his 17 starts. “I really don’t know how close we are to getting our first win. In that race last week, we were about a fifth to seventh place car and we made some good pit calls near the last half of the race to get ourselves in position,” Earnhardt said. “We still have a step or two to go, but we’re getting better and we feel pretty competitive every week.” Hamlin started fifth and led 89 laps at Martinsville. Because of the poor fuel mileage, he had to pit a few laps before the rest of the lead group before a caution flag came out only a few laps later. Before getting caught up in a late wreck at Daytona, Hamlin was running third. He finished seventh at Las Vegas after starting at the back

FORT WORTH, Texas — David Ragan feels like he is taking the right steps to get up to par with his Roush Fenway teammates. Now he has his first career NASCAR Sprint Cup pole. Ragan earned his first pole in 153 career races with a lap of 189.820 mph Friday at Texas Motor Speedway. He easily took the top spot from teammate Carl Edwards (188.521 mph), who will start on the front row with him. “We were so close. That is cool for David though,” Edwards said. “If we had to be second to anyone in qualifying David would be the guy. Those guys have been working really hard.” It is the third time in the last four races that Ragan is starting in the top six. The only race in that stretch he didn’t start that high was last week at Martinsville, where he started 14th and then went on to a season-best eighth-place finish. “I think the three guys that are on our team are the three best drivers in the garage. It puts pressure on us to go and run fast,” Ragan said. “It’s good to have come out of the box with some good runs, some good qualifying runs, a couple of good races. So we’ve just got to continue to get better and concentrate week to week.”

The Red Sox’s Dustin Pedroia beats the tag of Yankees’ catcher Russell Martin to score safely on a single by Adrian Gonzalez in the second inning of Friday’s game at Fenway Park in Boston.

Sox get off the schneid The Associated Press

BOSTON — The Red Sox ended their worst losing streak to start a season since World War II as Dustin Pedroia homered and drove in three runs to lift Boston to a 9-6 win over the New York Yankees in the 100th home opener at Fenway Park on Friday. With a full house cheering from the pregame player introductions, the Red Sox pounded 12 hits, three by Pedroia. They started the season on the road by going 0-6 for the first time since beginning the 1945 season at 0-8. They had been a popular preseason choice to reach the World Series after adding Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez to support what seemed like a strong rotation. But the struggles of the starters continued when John Lackey (1-1) gave up six runs in five innings. He still got the win when Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s runscoring double broke a 6-6 tie in the fifth. Jonathan Papelbon, coming off his worst season, got the save with a perfect ninth inning as Boston won its seventh straight

home opener. J.D. Drew had given him a three-run cushion with a two-run single in the seventh. The game started poorly for the Red Sox as Lackey walked the first batter, Brett Gardner, who stole second. After a walk to Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano drove a two-run double to deep center field. Tigers 5, Royals 2

DETROIT — Victor Martinez hit a three-run double in his first home at-bat for the Detroit Tigers, helping his new team to a 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday. Martinez, who signed with Detroit in November, cleared the bases in the first inning with a drive to the gap in right-center field. Jhonny Peralta drove in two runs for the Tigers, who looked sharp in their home opener after losing four of six to start the season. Twins 2, Athletics 1

MINNEAPOLIS — Joe Mauer and Denard Span delivered RBI singles in the eighth inning

against the superb Brett Anderson to lift the Minnesota Twins to a 2-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics in their home opener on Friday. Rays 9, White Sox 7

CHICAGO — Dan Johnson hit a three-run homer to cap a fiverun ninth, and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied for their first win of the season hours after Manny Ramirez retired, beating the Chicago White Sox 9-7 Friday night. The dramatic comeback ended a wild day in which Ramirez decided to call it quits rather than face a 100-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy for the second time. Rangers-Orioles postponed

BALTIMORE — The Texas Rangers received another day to savor their stature as the only unbeaten team in the major leagues after their game Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles was postponed by rain. The teams will play a traditional doubleheader on Saturday starting at 4:30 p.m.

Chipper’s 2,500 hit dooms Phils The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the fourth inning off Cliff Lee and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Friday night in their home opener. Jones had two hits, giving him 2,500 for his career. Lee (1-1) couldn’t hold an early 3-0 lead as the Braves scored three runs in the second and then knocked the lefthander out of the game with three in the fourth. Tim Hudson (2-0) spotted the Phillies three runs before finishing strong. He gave up eight hits and two earned, with no walks in 7 2-3 innings. The Braves won in the home debut for first-year manager Fredi Gonzalez, who caught the pregame first pitch from his predecessor, Bobby Cox.

Torres reached on the error and advanced to second on defensive indifference. Brian Tallet (0-1), the sixth Cardinals pitcher, intentionally walked Freddy Sanchez to load the bases. Rowand then drove a pitch to deep left-center, capping a long, festive home opener that lasted 4 hours, 24 minutes.

Nationals 6, Mets 2

NEW YORK — Jordan Zimmermann spoiled the New York Mets’ 50th home opener with his bat and arm, hitting a tworun single and pitching the Washington Nationals to a 6-2 victory Friday at chilly Citi Field. Ivan Rodriguez added a tworun single, snapping an 0-for-12 skid to start the season, and weary Washington got brilliant work from its bullpen to win its second road game in a row. The Nationals, who took advantage of nine walks by Mets pitching, arrived at their New York hotel about 4 a.m. on Friday following an 11-inning victory Thursday night at Florida.

Twins 2B Nishioka won’t need surgey The Associated Press

Minnesota Twins second baseman Tsuyoshi Nishioka will not need a cast or surgery for his broken left fibula. Nishioka was examined by team doctors Friday before the Twins’ home opener against Oakland. The Twins say he will be on crutches until the pain subsides and then they will go ahead with a rehab plan. There is no timetable for his return. Nishioka was injured in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday when Nick Swisher slid into his left leg to break up a double play. The Twins called up Luke Hughes to fill in while Nishioka is on the disabled list. Nishioka crutched his way out to the first baseline for pregame introductions and received a long, standing ovation from the home crowd that was eager to get their first look at the Japanese import.

Lavin is battling prostate cancer

St. John’s coach is expected to make complete recovery, according to his doctor. By JIM O’CONNELL AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — Steve Lavin, who revived St. John’s basketball in his first season with the Red Storm, has prostate cancer but his doctor expects him to keep coaching and make a complete recovery. The 46-year-old Lavin said in a statement Friday he was diagnosed in September and was told he could delay treatment until after the season. He will begin treatment in the coming weeks. The statement did not say how he will treated. “My family feels fortunate that through annual health exams, we detected my condition at an early

stage,” Lavin said. “This past fall I didn’t want to distract our team, but with the season behind us, we are now working with medical experts and taking the proper steps to tackle this health challenge head on.” He is under the care of Dr. Jonathan Schiff, a New York urologist. Schiff described Lavin’s condition as a “relatively low-grade cancer,” with treatment to proceed “shortly.” “I expect a complete cure of Coach Lavin’s condition and we anticipate a seamless continuation of his coaching duties,” Schiff said. The Red Storm went 21-12 and tied for third in the Big East this season. They made the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002, losing to Gonzaga in the second round. Lavin inherited a roster with 10 seniors. After a rough start, St.

end the season. Lavin was hired at St. John’s in April after seven years as an ESPN analyst. He coached at UCLA from1996 to 2003 and was fired after leading the Bruins to a 145-78 record that included six NCAA tournament berths. Lavin received support Friday from two Big East coaches who had prostate cancer — Jim Calhoun of Connecticut and Jim Boeheim of Syracuse — and went on win NCAA championships. “All of us as men can get it,” Calhoun told The Associated Press. “I am happy for him that they caught it early. The cure rate then can be AP PHOTO 100 percent.” Calhoun, who won his third naSt. John’s coach Steve Lavin tional title Monday night, was diwill undergo treatment for prostrate cancer. agnosed in 2003. “I underwent surgery; he may John’s won eight of nine with four not,” Calhoun said. “But after the of the wins over ranked teams. surgery I was back coaching in 12 The Red Storm lost three of five to days.”

Vicki Golden grew up racing around the guys, so when she decided to race in men’s Arenacross this year, it really wasn’t a big deal. Well, at least to her.

so it wasn’t like unheard of to go race in the guys class. I just wanted to stay racing because it’s only a couple of months racing, then it’s a super long offseason in the winter. I was just getting burned out, so it was kind of an easy decision.” Golden initially wanted to compete in Supercross, then decided it’d be better to give Arenacross a shot, committing to a full season in the Arenacross Lites Western Regional Championship. Other women have competed in smaller motocross events and even tried to qualify for men’s nationals, but Golden was the first to join a circuit for a full season. The 18-year-old made her debut in Denver Jan. 28-30 and, despite feeling confidence she

belonged, was a little jittery. “I don’t know if I was nervous, I was, uh ... yeah, I was definitely nervous,” she said. “Just from what you see on TV, the intense racing and people just hitting each other, I was nervous, but that’s what I wanted. I wanted to go there to learn and get more aggressive and there’s only one way to learn how to do that, and that’s to just go there and do it.” Golden didn’t make the main event in her first race, but did in Sacramento, Calif., a month later to reach another milestone. That race didn’t go so well — she stalled on the first turn and finished well back — but she’s been a consistent main event qualifier since, notching three top-15 finishes.

Lawyers for NFL, players talk mediation with judge ST. PAUL, Minn. — The locked-out NFL players don’t want to go back to collective bargaining with the league. They have now made a move to allow their former union boss to be present if court-supervised talks take place between the two sides. Attorneys for the NFL and the players held a conference call Friday to discuss mediation with U.S. District Judge Susan Ri-

chard Nelson, who is currently deciding whether to lift the lockout. League spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the call took place and said Nelson wanted details to remain private. Jeffrey Kessler, a lawyer for the players, declined to comment. The most notable development Friday was the formal addition of DeMaurice Smith as an attorney for the players. Smith is

the executive director of the NFL Players Association, which is now officially a trade association and not a union. Lawyers who practice in a different state must file for approval through the court. NFLPA spokesman Carl Francis confirmed that the move allows Smith to participate in any mediation sessions that might take place under Nelson’s supervision.

After a hearing Wednesday on the players’ request for an injunction to stop the lockout, Nelson urged both sides to resume talks toward a new labor pact. Negotiations broke down last month. Both sides expressed a willingness to talk again after the hearing, but the NFL wants to resume negotiations before a federal mediator in Washington while the players prefer to remain in Nelson’s court.

NEW YORK — Uncle Mo gives his owner, trainer and jockey every indication he can be a special racehorse. Owner Mike Repole sees it in Uncle’s Mo’s eyes, and in the bay colt’s confident gait and calm demeanor. Todd Pletcher knows a champion when he sees one, and the nation’s leading trainer says Uncle Mo has the potential to be among the all-time greats if he continues “doing what he’s been doing.” John Velazquez has been aboard UncleMoforallfourofhisvictories and says he’s versatile enough to win no matter how the race sets up when the field turns for home. The rest of the racing world gets another chance to see Uncle Mo today, when the No. 1 Kentucky Derbycontendergoesagainstnineother 3-year-olds in the $1 million WoodMemorialatAqueductRacetrack. What to expect in Uncle Mo’s final prep before he’s shipped off to Churchill Downs for the Derby on May 7? “We just want to see more of what we’ve seen from Uncle Mo in every start of his life and that’s brilliance,” Pletcher said earlier this week. “That’s kind of become what we expect from him.” Uncle Mo is the 1-5 favorite over what appears an overmatched field in the Grade 1 Wood. Toby’s Corner, third in the Gotham behind Mo’s stablemate Stay Thirsty in his last start, is the 8-1 second choice. The others are listed at odds ranging from 12-1 to 99-1. WhatmakesUncleMosospecial is an extra burst of speed, and extra gear, that allows him to take command. He won in his debut, at six furlongs, by 141⁄4 lengths; he took the Grade 1, mile Champagne by 43⁄4 lengths; blew away the field by 41⁄4 lengths in the 1 1-16th-mile, Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile; and easily drew clear for a 33⁄4-length win in the Timely Writer in his only start this year. Repole used a Mike Tyson-Michael Spinks fight a few decades ago to describe Uncle Mo’s racetrack knockout punch. “It’sjabandjabandjabandallofa sudden boom! Pow! Light’s out! Mohasthat,”Repolesaid.“Hegets to the top of the stretch — he did it in all four of his races — and when somebody gets close to him and he wants to get away ... boom! Five lengths in five seconds. He’s been unchallenged his whole career.”

Jaycito out of Santa Anita

Forty Fort

ARCADIA, Calif. — The Santa Anita Derby lost another contender when Jaycito dropped out on the eve of today’s $1 million race because of a bruised front foot. That leaves Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert with a single entry, 20-1 shot Midnight Interlude, for the West’s biggest prep for the Kentucky Derby. On Thursday, the race lost Premier Pegasus, the initial early favorite, because of a leg injury that will sideline the colt through the Triple Crown series. Baffert had said earlier Friday that Jaycito was 50-50 to run because of an abscess, a bacterial infection that causes fluid to accumulate in the foot, often causing pain. He called the racing office later in the afternoon to say he was scratching the colt, who had been the 2-1 early favorite for the 1 1-8-mile race. Baffert said he thinks Jaycito developed the bruise after a March 22 workout across town at Hollywood Park. He will now point Jaycito toward the Grade 3 Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland on April 23, two weeks before the May 7 Kentucky Derby. Jaycito was a latecomer to Baffert’s barn, having run for trainer Mike Mitchell in his first four races last year. He had a troubled trip as the 2-1 favorite in his last start, when he lost by 73⁄4 lengths to Premier Pegasus in the 1 1-16-mile San Felipe. Premier Pegasus was scheduled to have surgery on the hairline fracture of his left front cannon bone Friday at Santa Anita’s backstretch hospital. He’s expected to miss at least two months and possibly longer. Baffert’s other Kentucky Derby contender is The Factor, set to run next weekend in the $1 million Arkansas Derby. Uncle Mo is not an imposing horse, but his speed is deceiving thanks to a long, smooth stride. “He does things very easily,” Pletcher said. “I haven’t measured his stride, but I would suspect it’s tremendous. He just covers so much ground that I think that’s one ofhismanystrengths,thathe’sable to get into that high cruising speed.

Kentucky Derby favorite is undefeated and untested in four dazzling career starts.

She turned pro at 16 the next year and was competitive before an injury ended her initial season, but bounced back strong last year, finishing fourth in the season standings. Golden had made a name for herself as one of the top women’s riders to watch, but had a problem: the season was just too short. The women’s season typically runs from May to September, leaving eight months off. Bored with playing around in the hills and competing a little in Supercross, Golden decided to try Arenacross. She’s been riding with guys her entire life, so she figured why not? “Growing up, that’s kind of what I did,” she said. “We didn’t have any kind of women’s cross,

Female runs with men’s Arenacross

Vicki Golden wasn’t looking to make history. She was just bored, wanted something to do during the break in the women’s motocross season. She ended up doing both. One of the top up-and-coming riders in women’s motocross, Golden has broken boysonly boundaries by becoming the first female rider to compete full-time on the Arenacross circuit. OK, so maybe it isn’t Danica Patrick winning an IndyCar race or Annika Sorenstam teeing it up on the PGA Tour. It’s still a pretty significant step in a sport that’s historically been known as a men’s club. “It’s awesome because nobody’s ever done what she’s done,” women’s motocross rider Lindsey Scheltema said. “It’s a huge milestone, a huge stepping stone for women in a male-dominated sport.” Golden came by her genderbreaking decision naturally. Growing up in El Cajon, Calif., she wanted to join her father and brother out in the fields, asking for and getting a dirt bike for Christmas when she was 7. Golden started racing the next year and started competing in amateur nationals a few years later, winning the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National championship in 2008.

The Week Ahead

Still selling? Many analysts thought retail sales would be slow in March since Easter falls later this year than it did last year, and the weather has been chilly. But last week, retailers from Costco to Victoria’s Secret reported that sales were surprisingly good. On Tuesday, we’ll get more news about the state of shopping in the U.S. when the Commerce Department releases its own sales data for March. Market-watchers are hoping for another pleasant surprise.

Beige ambitions

Rising prices

Another major insight into the economy: the Federal Reserve’s so-called “Beige Book,” a tome that’s published eight times per year. The Beige Book, to be released Wednesday, includes anecdotal information based on surveys of bank directors, economists, market experts and other sources. It offers an in-the-trenches look at how the economy is performing across the country. The report also breaks down the economic situation by region, giving policy-makers and investors a closer look at local business activity.

On Friday, the Consumer Price Index, one of the most closelywatched inflation indicators, will be released. Inflation has been increasingly on the mind of federal officials and investors. The Labor Department’s report on consumer prices will show how much businesses have passed the increasing cost of goods on to shoppers. Many companies have been forced to raise costs, but are concerned that doing so will scare away cash-strapped consumers.

Haran will resign as CEO from Technology Institute

Christopher Haran has advised the board of directors of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Technology Institute that he will resign as the organization’s chief executive officer, effective April 15, to accept a position as chief information officer at TMG Health in Scranton. Haran has been CEO since the institute incorporated in 2003. NPTI, along with Great Valley Technology Alliance, has helped to stimulate the creation of over 50 new companies in the region through initiatives such as the Annual Business Plan Competition as well as the Keystone Innovation Zone program, which it coordinates.

Food workers graduate HAZLETON – Two years ago, at the behest of food processing companies throughout the region, Penn State’s Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre campuses developed a certification program for that industry. On Friday, another crop of program graduates entered the job market. Thirteen students received the certificates of completion from the Qualified Food Workers program on Friday. The graduates were honored during a ceremony held at the PA CareerLink Center in Hazleton. The program’s curriculum included education in food safety, personal hygiene, and quality control. In addition to training in specific areas, the

students also toured businesses, including Cargill Meat Solutions at the Humboldt Industrial Park in Hazle Township. The program is sponsored by the Northeast PA Food Processing Industry Partnership, a recently formed alliance of food processing companies throughout the area, with the aim to better coordinate local resources and services to meet the specific needs of that industry. The goal of the training program is to create a viable pool of job seekers for positions with regional food-processing companies by guaranteeing that candidates have the essential skills to become employed in those companies. The program is funded by grants obtained by the Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce In-

vestment Board while the course is administered by the local Penn State campuses. Lucyann Vierling, the executive director of that board, said the program acts as a bridge between employers and qualified job candidates. The program, she said, will “insure employers have qualified candidates and help individuals find work more quickly by engaging them to meet the needs of employers.” “This is a good day,” added Jack Hallick, manager of human resources at Klingerstown-based Michael Foods. “Whether you are a candidate for a job in the food industry, you’re an employer or you’re one of the multitudes of people who were involved in bringing this together today, it’s a good

day.” Michael Foods has been on board from the get-go. The ceremony was followed by a job fair that included representatives from The Hershey Co., Mission Foods, Romark Logistics, and Michael Foods who met with the graduates

and conducted interviews. “The fact that employers guaranteed an interview to program graduates is a testament to the program’s success,” said Martha Herron, Luzerne/ Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board chairwoman.

Disney announces plans to build $3.7 billion theme park in China

The head of Asian operations for the world’s largest consumer products maker says Procter & Gamble Co. is making solid progress on ambitious goals in the region that has half the world’s population. Asia Group president Deb Henretta said that growth in the company’s business there has picked up speed. The Tide maker’s goal to double annual revenue to $175 billion in 15 years counts on putting many more babies in China in Pampers and washing more hair in India with Pantene. Henretta’s mission is to get Asians buying Tide detergent, Pamper diapers and Gillette shavers at the same rate as consumers in Mexico — about $20 per person a year. Doing so would add some $50 billion in sales.

Canada’s unemployment rate dipped for the first time in six months, edging down one-tenth of a point to 7.7 percent in March as fewer people looked for work, Statistics Canada said Friday. The labor force also shrank, accounting for the minor reduction in the unemployment rate, the reporting agency said. The results were somewhat unexpected considering the strong labor market growth the previous three months and analysts’ predictions of another 20,000 jobs in March. The number was also well off the 38,000 average jobs creation the economy had produced the previous three months. March was a case of part-time jobs being switched for full-time work rather than of the overall movement, the agency said, with the full-time employment rising sharply by 90,600, offset by a 92,100 decline in part-time employees.

MAGIC KINGDOM IN SHANGHAI

By ELAINE KURTENBACH AP Business Writer

SHANGHAI — Dipping golden shovels into a trench of sand, Walt Disney Co. executives and their Shanghai partners broke ground Friday for a long-sought theme park that will feature the world’s biggest “Magic Kingdom” castle, and ambitions to match. The 24.5 billion yuan ($3.7 billion) park in Shanghai’s southeastern suburbs is meant to serve as a brandbuilding cornerstone, luring legions of newly affluent Chinese with worldclass facilities that will be “authentically Disney, but distinctly Chinese,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger.

“Today is the culmination of many years of hard work, dedication and partnership,” Iger said. “This is a defining moment in our company’s history.” After over a decade of haggling, Shanghai’s communist leaders seemed equally enthusiastic about the project, which will serve as an anchor for an “international tourism resort zone” with hotels and other largescale entertainment venues. It will be Disney’s fourth theme park outside the U.S., after Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong. “Disney is a classic urban entertainment brand,” said the city’s mayor, Han Zheng. “This project will help im-

prove Shanghai’s profile as a world famous tourism destination.” The project is a new showcase for this city of 22 million, whose aspirations as a tourism destination were fortified by the 2010 World Expo, which drew a record 72 million visitors during its six-month run, almost all of them Chinese tourists. Both sides are presumably hoping the park will prove more successful than Hong Kong Disneyland, which has struggled to remain profitable though it reports increasing popularity with visitors from the mainland, who account for more than 40 percent of total attendance.

WASHINGTON — Health care giant Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay $70 million to settle civil and criminal charges of bribing doctors in Europe and paying kickbacks to the Iraqi government to illegally obtain business. The Securities and Exchange Commission said Friday that the company settled the charges with the agency and the Justice Department without admitting or denying guilt. The government accused J&J subsidiaries of providing money and travel gifts to doctors in Greece, Poland and Romania in exchange for their prescribing J&J products to patients. The SEC says J&J agents used fake contracts and sham companies to deliver the bribes. The SEC says the bribes began at least 13 years ago. J&J subsidiaries also allegedly paid kickbacks to the Iraqi government to obtain contracts under the United Nations Oil for Food Program. The charges are the latest in a series of issues that have battered the company’s household image. In the past year, the company has had to recall over-the-counter medicines — such as Children’s Tylenol and Benadryl — contact lenses and orthopedic hips. Last month federal health regulators took legal control of the plant where millions of bottles of defective medication were produced. The New Brunswick, N.J.-based health care company sells everything from Band-Aids to biotech drugs.

Tip pays off big: IRS awards $4.5 million to a whistleblower accountant By MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — An accountant who tipped off the IRS that his employer was skimping on taxes has received $4.5 million in the first IRS whistleblower award. The accountant’s tip netted the IRS $20 million in taxes and interest from the errant financial-services firm. The award represents a 22 percent cut of the taxes reco-

vered. The program, designed to encourage tips in large-scale cases, mandates awards of 15 to 30 percent of the amount recouped. “It ought to encourage a lot of other people to squeal,” Sen. Charles Grassley told The Associated Press. The Iowa Republican helped get the IRS Whistleblower Office authorized in 2006. The IRS mailed the accountant’s lawyer a $3.24 million

check that arrived in suburban Philadelphia by first-class mail Thursday. The sum represents the award minus a 28 percent tax hit. The lawyer, Eric L. Young of Blue Bell, won’t release the name of his client or the firm because his client remains a small-town accountant, and hopes to continue to work in his field. “It’s a win-win for both the government and taxpayers.

These are dollars that are being returned to the Treasury that otherwise wouldn’t be,” Young said. “It’s very difficult to be a whistleblower,” said Young, who has represented more than a dozen such tipsters, including one in a $2 billion Pfizer case involving off-label drug marketing. “Most people would be inclined to turn a blind eye to it. The process can be time-con-

suming, arduous and stressful, from both a personal and professional standpoint,” he said. The accountant filed a complaint with the IRS in 2007, just as the IRS Whistleblower Office opened, but heard nothing for two years. Frustrated, he hired Young to help push the issue. “We were able to help him get it back on track,” Young said.

I've measured rain on six of the past nine days here in Luzerne County, but today the rain gauge will stay dry thanks to a small ridge of high pressure allowing for some sunshine and light winds. Temperatures will stay rather cool through the afternoon, and then skies will turn cloudy again heading into tonight. A leading edge of very warm air will pass through tomorrow with mostly cloudy skies and maybe a late day shower. On Monday, the heat is on! Indeed, it'll feel like summer in the afternoon as readings approach 80. But thunderstorms may arrive later in the day. - Tom Clark

SANDRA SNYDER WALL TO WALL

Always look for the writing on the walls A

Try these handy tips this year By MELISSA KOSSLER DUTTON

For The Associated Press

pring is the time of year when homes often get a thorough cleaning. Using the right tools, techniques and products for different surfaces and types of dirt, from windows to counters to floors, is key to doing the job easily and effectively, said Debra Johnson, training manager for the Merry Maids housecleaning company in Memphis, Tenn.

“It makes the job easier if you have the right products,” she said. Begin with the rooms or areas that seem the dirtiest, suggested Carolyn Forte, director of the Home Appliances and Cleaning Lab at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. “Start with the thing that bothers you most,” she said. “Do the bigger jobs first.” Johnson and Forte offered the following advice for effective spring cleaning.

Beloved books: A spring-cleaning challenge

• Windows: Use an ammoniabased cleaner and microfiber cloth, Forte said. Make sure to use plenty of cleaner to remove the dirt. Change the water and cloth as necessary. Avoid washing windows on sunny days because the cleaner will dry too quickly and leave streaks. • Window blinds: Close plastic blinds and wipe with a damp cloth, Johnson said. Reverse the

In the name of renewal (and family peace), my husband and I repurposed our rec room into a master bedroom and let our girls, ages 12 and 6, have their own rooms. In the process, we had to redistribute everyone’s books. We shuffled them from room to room and set them on newly installed shelves, but we still had a lot left over. I was forced to admit it: I had too many books. And books can be harder to kick out than termites. “Of all the stuff I try to get rid of as an organizer, books are the most difficult,” says Leslie Josel, owner of the home-organizing service Order Out of Chaos, in Larchmont, N.Y. They are not usually worth much money, and they are heavy. My problem was, I still kind of wanted them myself. The first

s a huge fan of all things home and hearth whose domesticity might even border on addiction – “Blasphemy!” a Facebook friend recently responded when I declared that home improvement was better than jewelry – I have developed a terribly bad habit. Basically, everywhere I go, I think, is better than where I came from. Which is to say if you have a nice house and invite me to it, be aware you’re aiding and abetting my illness. It’s entirely possible, and quite likely, I’ll leave your fabulous dwelling hating my inferior own. Ask my “regulars,” those who frequent my place or have their own keys. They’ll roll their eyes and tell you something along the lines of, “There she goes again. Humor, or just ignore, her.” But I can’t help myself. It’s just that I’m a sucker for new ideas and new perspectives every bit as much as new … couches, chairs, bedding, table linens, essentially any and all accoutrements and how they all come together in a certain house in a certain way so as to make my knees weak pretty much as soon as I darken the door. Even a seemingly silly “shudnicky” – that’s what my grandmother used to call any dustable, decorative item – can slay me. If one of yours hits me just the right way at just the right time, I can easily lose an entire day when I get home rearranging my own riffraff. Fortunately, I may have found a partial cure: If you’re, um, unusual, you should invite me over. I’ll explain. One of my favorite things to do while on vacation is tour a house where a famous person once lived, all the better if that famous person was a writer or other literary figure, which is my favorite kind of famous person. I’ve walked almost reverently around Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam and Charles Dickens’ house in London and got about as close as I could to Georg Von Trapp’s in Austria (meaning the gazebo and the fountain where curtainclad kids danced). But nothing compares to the fabled tropical Florida residence of one Mr. Ernest Hemingway, where I recently signed the guest registry for the second time. I left, yet again, quite proud, telling myself, “See, you can walk away from a wonderful place unscathed.” Not that I didn’t covet the French tilework on the bathroom floor or the floorto-ceiling window-doors leading to the huge second-story porch or pretty much every one of the real (not just decorative) green shutters that make this Key West abode an architectural icon. But I could have done without the ornate chandeliers for which a pesky first wife named Pauline traded all the aircirculating ceiling fans in the place. And I certainly could have skipped the purloined bar urinal now serving as a water fountain for six-toed cats, though I give Pauline credit for wonderfully dressing it up with mosaic tiling after she lost her fight with Papa to ditch it. (Basically, she dug in her heels over a saltwater pool, so he hauled home the outdoor urinal as payback.) We tour-takers got a lesson, see, not only in home decorating but in how to handle marital conflict. But the tour was also about legacy. Stubborn (and often sodden) as our man Ernest was, he left behind, among other niceties, a mesmerizing writing studio, into which the windy palms seemed to usher his spirit. Say what you will about the man and how he behaved here, I thought, but he sure did crank out some good stuff here. Some real legacy. If walls could talk … If I should die tomorrow … what might my walls say? Yours? Uh-oh. Here I go again. When I’m up all night and bleary-eyed tomorrow, you’ll know whom to blame.

IN BRIEF On the shelf London’s Chelsea Flower Show is a gardener’s Mecca. Every May, lovers of landscaping flock to the Royal Horticultural Society’s exhibition to drink in its celebrated gardens. But even if you can’t afford the plane ticket, you can enjoy highlights of the show with the book “Best Garden Design: Practical Inspiration From the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show.” Author Chris Young serves as a sort of tour guide to the show, pointing out features and artistic elements that set gardens apart. He highlights gardens in a variety of styles and explains what makes them special. While the book is intended largely to inspire, Young includes tips from experts that can help readers make their own gardens better. Best Garden Design is published by Firefly Books and sells for $35 in hardcover.

suggests spraying a microfiber cloth with a small amount of furniture polish. • Tile: Spray a foaming bathroom cleaner on tiled surfaces and leave it on for a few minutes. Remove the cleaner with a clean rag or sponge. If the grout has mildew, use a product designed to remove it. It may take several applications and a lot of scrubbing with a grout brush to thoroughly clean the grout, Johnson said. • Bathroom sinks and counters: Foaming cleaners or those designed to remove soap scum will work best. Make sure the cleaner you choose is safe for any special stone or countertop in the bathroom. • Kitchen sinks and counters: Use cleaners that are more acid-

ic or anti-bacterial in the kitchen, Johnson said. Read the labels on cleaners, as some may need to be left on the surface for a few minutes before being wiped off, Forte added. Make sure the cleaner is appropriate for the counter material. Here are a few additional tips for successful housecleaning from Allen Rathey, president of the Housekeeping Channel, a website dedicated to efficient cleaning: • Clean dry to wet. Always sweep a floor before mopping. Wetting dirt will make it harder to remove. • More is not always better. Follow the labels on cleaning products to avoid using too much. Residue from cleaning products can attract more dirt.

• When trying to remove a spot or clean a dirty area, start wiping or scrubbing gently. Too much pressure can damage the surface under the dirt. • Get extra life out of a clean cloth by folding it in quarters. When one side becomes dirty, refold the cloth to reveal a clean side. • Purchase doormats for the interior and exterior of your home. The mats will collect and absorb dirt and prevent it from being spread indoors. • Cleaning equipment should be washed regularly. Put sponges in the dishwasher or microwave to sterilize. Wash microfiber rags in hot water without fabric softener. Clean brooms and scrub brushes in soapy water or hydrogen peroxide.

slats and clean the other side of the blinds with a clean, damp cloth. Use a tool designed for blind cleaning to clean between the slats. For cloth blinds, use a vacuum attachment to remove dust and dirt. • Wood floors: Wash floors with a cleaner designed for wood surfaces, Forte said. Choose the cleaner that’s appropriate for the finish on the floor, either wax or polyurethane. She favors using a microfiber cloth on a mop with a swivel head. • Laminate floors: Because laminate is a very durable surface, it can be cleaned with a variety of cleaning products, hot water and a mop or microfiber cloth, Johnson said. • Rugs: Send area rugs that cannot go in a washing machine to a professional cleaner to avoid discoloring or damaging them, Johnson recommended. Set smaller rugs outside for a good airing, she added. When vacuuming a rug in a doorway or other high-traffic area, turn the rug over and run the sweeper on the underside of the rug, Forte said. • Dust: Work from the top down to avoid dirtying areas that were just cleaned, Johnson said. Use a vacuum attachment to remove cobwebs and dust in corners. The vacuum also is a good way to remove dust from lampshades and upholstered surfaces. Avoid feather dusters, Johnson added, as they just move the dust around. • Wipe furniture with a damp cloth because dust can scratch wood surfaces, Forte said. She

Reglazing bathroom tile a less expensive alternative

BOOKS Continued from Page 1C

big hurdle of book purging: emotional attachment. Unlike termites, my books were invited into my house or bestowed as gifts. My kids had classics inscribed to them by their grandparents. I had important, canonical works. The problem was, some of them were never liked, or even read. Years of accumulation had resulted in unwieldy towers and double“The clutter loaded shelves full in our of novels, parenting books and travhouses beel guides, some comes like from trips never another taken or classes 30 person livyears past. “The clutter in ing there — our houses bethe most comes like another dysfunctionperson living there al one.” — the most dysfunctional one,” Leslie Josel Josel says. OK, dysfunctional family member, time to stop taking up space. I started with the children’s books. Those below the youngest child’s reading level could, except for a few sentimental favorites, be weeded out. Books that my older kids had enjoyed could be saved at the top of a closet for the youngest. That was a warmup exercise. On to the adult section. Books in foreign languages last studied in high school: out. Gifts that only revealed the bizarre taste of the giver: out. Books that were Important Prize Winners but too daunting to read: out. Mostly. Aww, look where I wrote Rolling Stones lyrics in my high-school poetry anthology. Save. See, that’s what happens. I had to stay strong. “Organization of books brings clarity into a person’s life,” says Nicola Walter, president of Nicola Walter Design & Decor, Inc. in New York City. She suggests arranging volumes by topic and stacking those of current interest on a coffee table or nightstand. Then, “make a visual composition of the bookshelf.” That means stacking books both vertically and horizontally, and giving them some air in between where you can place pretty bookends, photographs, sculptures or vases. One key is using boxes small enough that you can carry them when they’re full of books. Collect them in one pile placed so inconveniently that you’re forced to do something about it. I thought it would be easy to find a good home for my beloved books, but I was wrong. I was turned away from a retire-

I thought it would be easy to find a good home for my beloved books, but I was wrong. I was turned away from a retirement home, a library and a day-care center. There are no used bookstores near me. I started leaving books at the commuter train station, as if someone’s commute would be improved with a little French existentialism. ment home, a library and a day-care center. There are no used bookstores near me. I started leaving books at the commuter train station, as if someone’s commute would be improved with a little French existentialism. My town sanitation department will throw the books in a landfill but not recycle them, which just seemed wrong. I’d never had such a hard time giving something away. “With clothes,” Josel says, “it is easy to donate them, as you can bag them up and have them picked up from your home. With books, you often need to bring them to a location. Having multiple steps in the donating process leads people to get stuck and therefore not do it.” The Salvation Army is one service that does pick up in my area, so I gave most of my books to them. Call in advance to arrange pickups, or go to www.salvationarmyusa.org. I was limited to three boxes, so I transferred the smaller boxes into three big ones. Other nationwide services with free

pickup in many locations include Vietnam Veterans of America (www.vva.org), Goodwill (www.goodwill.org) and Big Brother Big Sister Foundation (www.bbbsfoundation.org). Some charitable organizations give books to shelters, prisons and schools. If you live near them, you can use their collection bins; otherwise, you have to pack up your books and pay to ship them. To send books to U.S. troops, contact Operation Paperback (www.operationpaperback.org) and Books for Soldiers (www.booksforsoldiers.com). If you want to try selling your books, BookScouter.com lets you compare prices at various book-buying websites. TextbookRecycling.com can help you buy and sell used textbooks. A last option: Play! At Bookcrossing.com, download a label for your book and leave it in a public spot. When someone picks it up, they can log on to say so. That way t’s not really saying goodbye.

A tale of slugs and snails is a charm By BARBARA MAHANY Chicago Tribune

“The Secret World of Slugs and Snails: Life in the Very Slow Lane,” By David George Gordon (Sasquatch Books, $14.95) ••• What it is: From the get-go, “The Secret World of Slugs and Snails” is a charmer, and one you won’t have to slog through. You’ll devour chapters that lay out the wonders of the prehistoric mollusks, from stories of how they got to these shores in the first place (blame a French explorer) to how they’ve managed to survive a rather trying string of ice ages, earthquakes, volcanoes and lesser climatologic

troubles. You’ll gasp, perhaps, at the “Seven Wonders of Snaildom” (from Slime to Sex, you’ll find it all). You’ll unearth long lists of plants they snub. How to keep them as pets. And a medieval recipe for escargot, one that dates back to 1394. What makes it armchair-worthy: Who wouldn’t want to curl up with a tome that shares such biological deliciousness as the fact that the slug has 27,000 teeth? (And does it make us feel any better, knowing the slimy fellow is no slouch in the dental department, when, overnight, he makes chopped salad of our hostas?) David George Gordon, a naturalist and author of19 books, including the best-selling “Eat-a-

Bug Cookbook,” knows how to spin a yarn. Best of all, his fascination with the underappreciated slowpokes is downright contagious. Don’t be surprised if you hoist a Slug Lookout Booth in your own backyard. One fine line: “But why study snails, of all things?” the parents of an ex-seminarian asked their son, who had decided to abandon his path of religious study, leaving the seminary to become a student of malacology — the branch of biology that includes slugs and snails. The ex-seminarian is said to have replied, “Slugs and snails are living reminders that not everyone gets to be an eagle.”

ALAN J. HEAVENS so I would assume she wouldn’t do anything that would affect it. She said another real-estate agent she knows also reglazed the bathroom tile in her house, so that’s two votes in favor. ••• Color me ... Francesa? The painting season is upon us, and Consumer Reports decided to put Martha Stewart’s line to the test when it hit the shelves at Home Depot in the past couple of months. Results: The semigloss performed well, with very good coverage and smoothness and an excellent resistance to staining and scrubbing, earning a Consumer Reports recommended buy rating. Consumer Reports spotted several alluring Martha hues, including Ballet Slipper Pink, Francesca, and Darkening Sky. The bad news for Martha is that there are still several competitors outperforming her paint in both price and performance, the magazine said. Behr’s Premium Plus Ultra paints ($31 to $34 per gallon) topped Consumer Reports’ ratings for the second year. Glidden Premium ($17 to $22 per gallon) was named a “best buy” in the satin and flat categories. ••• All aboard: Sjoerd Bos, vice president of Sansin, which makes environmentally friendly stains and other wood-preserving products, says that rather than letting the look of the wood dictate your choice, you should select the type of wood for your project based on its performance characteristics. For example, spruce is a very strong, long-lasting wood, making it a good candidate for wall construction. Teak, on the other hand, holds up well in wet environments and is resistant to decay and traffic, making it a solid choice for marine use. Questions? E-mail Alan J.

Q: In a recent story about home updating, a woman referred to having her more colorful, period ceramic tile reglazed white. Is such reglazing costeffective in refurbishing bathrooms, and what is the reglazed tile’s life span? Additionally, if retiling completely, that tile may well have a more modern appearance, so is it possible to conclude whether, in resale value, updated tiling is likely to be more advantageous? A: I called the homeowner, Chris Winterer Ryan of Ambler, Pa., and posed your questions to her. First, Ryan and husband, Rod, had the pink-and-gray 1950s tile in both upstairs bathrooms of their 55-yearold split-level reglazed white about three years ago. At $950 to $1,000 for each bathroom, it was a lot less than the $15,000 it would have cost to gut and redo them, she said. Ryan said she got the idea to reglaze from her niece in Evanston, Ill., who had the tile in her children’s bathroom reglazed white and added a new toilet. The work in both cases was done by a professional — the process is too toxic for an amateur to handle safely, she said. It has been three years since the work was done, and Ryan said that except for a couple of nicks, it still looks really good. The tile reglazer has called since completing the work and offered to come out to fix the nicks. The job took a day and a half, Ryan said. Pay attention to the flooring, Ryan recommends. “I needed to change the floor because it was gray but decided to replace it with marble,” she said. “It wasn’t worth the expense.” By replacing the floor, they were able to check the plumbing, “which is good because if we ever went to sell the house and we were asked about the condition, we can answer the question,” she said. Regarding the resale value, Ryan has been a realestate agent with Prudential Fox & Roach for 25 years,

High school senior wanting small college confronts big issue at home Dear Abby: I am a high school senior who has been filling out applications for college. I have found a few small liberal arts colleges I’d love to attend, and I have

a favorite. My father has been out of work for quite some time. He has applied for a job at a large state college. I visited the school and don’t like it because it’s a huge party school. My mother has now informed me that if Dad gets the job, I’ll have no choice but to go there because we would get a 70 percent discount in tuition. I feel angry and guilty at the same time. The anger is because my parents had promised me that college

DEAR ABBY ADVICE would be my choice. The guilt is for not wanting my father to get this job, even though it would greatly help my family’s financial situation. What should I do? — Bound For College Dear Bound For College: Your parents may have promised you your choice of colleges, but that was likely when your family’s financial situation was much better. What you should do is, first, pray that your father gets the job he so desperately needs. Then go to the library and start exploring

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

what financial aid or scholarships are available at the schools you’d prefer to attend. Also, don’t turn up your nose at the state college just yet. While it may have a reputation as a party school, that doesn’t mean you have to participate in the festivities. If you’re a serious student, you can still get an excellent education. Dear Abby: I have been happily married to my husband for 20 years. My problem is my children want me to make friends. My HUSBAND is my best friend. I don’t feel the need to go on “girls’ nights out” or anything else. I’m happy just to be with him. I’m not anti-social, just content. Besides, I have seen what can happen to relationships when these kinds of out-

CRYPTOQUOTE

ings go too far. I don’t want to offend my kids because they have only my best interests at heart, but I’m tired of the pressure. How can I get my adult children to leave my personal life alone and stop trying to get me to make friends? — Happy at Home Dear Happy: Your children may be urging you to make friends because they are aware that, statistically, women outlive their husbands. Frankly, I think they have a point. However, as an adult you can make your own decisions. And if yours is that you don’t want to expand your circle (of two), just say it in plain English. Dear Abby: From time to time you print helpful suggestions to readers in

your column. Allow me to pass along a no-cost charitable contribution: I got one of those “airline miles expiring” letters offering magazine subscriptions for the miles. Not wanting or needing any of the magazines that were listed, I had more than a dozen subscriptions sent to our local residential care facility. — David M. in San Francisco Dear David: What a thoughtful gesture. I’m sure my readers will appreciate your suggestion. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Each person sees what he wants to see. A small amount of evidence is all that’s needed, and the mind will fill in the rest. You will use this principle to your advantage as you paint the picture you want to paint about yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your emotions will be engaged in the action of the day, which makes all you do seem effortless. You will go with your feelings, and as a result, yesterday’s unsatisfied wishes will be fulfilled. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The task you choose to take on did not come with an instruction manual. However, there have been many books written on the subject that will serve you just as well. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Subtlety can be cool, but in today’s circumstance, it will be better if everyone knows what you did right. They will follow suit, and big improvements can be made across the board. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a strong need to help people. Choose the target for your generosity well. Also keep in mind that what helps one person might hinder the next person. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a certain behavior you would like to change, but you are having trouble. Think on the topic, and write down your thoughts. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Spontaneous chats with friends, neighbors and acquaintances will whittle away the time. This may prove the best use of your minutes, after all. You’ll create a shared sense of community.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One thing leads to another. You may not be able to change the “another” on its own, but you can change the “one thing.” SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will learn that someone needs your particular talent. Getting the chance to be creative will energize you. Once you get into the zone, you’ll stay there all day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will do what you love and bring so much of yourself to it that you will lose yourself in the moment. Responsibilities, worries and time itself will cease to exist for you while you follow your bliss. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will notice that something is missing. Maybe it was never there to begin with, but now you realize that you would like it to be there. And you have every right to ask for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be keenly aware of the ebb and flow of action. And while you realize that the doldrums are a normal part of life, you are still proactive in keeping them away. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 9). You see two distinct realities ahead, and you choose the most appealing. You’ll face your fears and conquer a significant one before the change of seasons. Athletic skill is featured in May. An extra source of income opens in June — start small and build slowly. Romantic notions turn into a reality in October. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 18, 29 and 41.

Fiat staging a head-tturning comeback NUTS AND BOLTS

SCOTT WASSER WHEELS

WHAT IS IT?

Three decades ago, following years of owning and replacing one British Triumph roadster after another, I gave up on Mother England and purchased a used Fiat 124 Spider. As a fanboy of British-built Austins, Jaguars, MGs and especially Triumphs, I had been unswervingly loyal to the Union Jack. But I’d gotten tired of constant mechanical and electrical problems and convertible tops that were about as effective as a balloon made of gauze. So I gave up and bought a used, Italian-made Fiat. It was a revelation. Unlike its British counterparts, the Fiat didn’t deliver that wind-in-your-face experience when the top was up. In short, the Fiat was a more refined and sophisticated than the comparably priced Triumphs I’d owned. I liked the 124 Spider until the day I replaced it with a pickup truck. Not everyone was as impressed with Fiat’s products as I was, however. An onslaught of inexpensive and reliable cars from Japan ultimately forced Fiat to leave the American market 27 years ago. But now Fiat SpA, a Turin-based company that has undergone a financial and creative renaissance recently in its native Italy, is also staging a comeback in the U.S. Fiat, which also owns 25 percent of Chrysler LLC, plans to open 122 showrooms – the company calls them “studios” – in the U.S. this year. There are none currently planned for the Wyoming Valley. The launch model is called the 500. It represents a reincarnation of Fiat’s classic Cinquecento and is intended to evoke memories of the tiny putt-putt that first hit Italian “strade” more than a half-century ago and has starred in countless foreign films (although, ironically, not in 1969’s “The Italian Job” or its 2003 remake). The 500, introduced as a 2012 model, is aimed at competing in the U.S. against other retro models, such as the Mini Cooper and Volkswagen’s

2012 Fiat 500, a mini car with maxi appeal.

WHAT DOES IT COST?: Available initially only as a two-door hatchback, the 500 will be offered in three trim levels at starting prices of $15,500, $17,500 and $19,500. WHAT I LIKED BEST: A blast to drive, surprisingly accommodating, and quite an attention-getter. WHAT I LIKED LEAST: Having to discuss it with someone nearly every time I exited the car. WHO’S IT FOR?: Maybe every-

The Fiat 500’s distinctive styling attracts a lot of attention and mostly positive comments. Its interior is sporty and features a one if gas prices soar past $4/gallon. raised shift lever that helps make manual gear-cchanging fun.

New Beetle. According to Fiat literature, the 500 was “designed for sheer passion” and “to maintain its history of strong iconic style and celebrated spirit.” It also states: “Like the original Cinquecento… the new Fiat 500 is just as sleek, simple and stylish.” I had an opportunity to put those claims to the test, thanks to getting my hands on a pre-production model. A few days in the car convinced me that Fiat’s rebirth in the U.S. is a lot more realistic than some of the stunts its Cinquecento and other models performed in films. If timing, as the cliché goes, is everything, then Fiat’s is impeccable. With fuel prices again climbing toward $4 a gallon, Americans seemed primed to purchase smaller, more economical vehicles. The 500 hits the bulls eye on all counts. It is 7 inches shorter, 2 inches narrower and weighs nearly 200 pounds less than the Mini Cooper. As maneuverable and easy to park as the Mini is, the Fiat feels like it can do U-turns in the same parking space. Yet the 500 meets or beats the Cooper in nearly all the important interior dimensions, such as front and rear head-, leg-, and shoul-

der-room. It also has nearly twice as much cargo room behind its rear seats and 25 percent more room with the rear seatbacks folded flat. The Fiat 500 also costs less than the Mini Cooper. The 500 will initially be available only as a two-door hatchback in three trim levels: Pop, Sport and Lounge. Starting MSRPs are $15,500, $17,500 and $19,500, respectively. Standard equipment includes fog lights, projector beam headlights, rear spoiler, air conditioning, cruise control, heated and power-operated door mirrors, remote keyless entry, trip computer. Also included in the base price are a Bose audio system with hands-free cell phone link, power windows, split folding rear seatbacks, leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear wiper and fourwheel antilock brakes. Obviously, even at $17,500 the Fiat 500 Sport is well equipped, not stripped. It’s also a blast to drive. Its short turning radius, responsive steering and sporty suspension make the 500 about as nimble and quick as any four-passenger vehicle on the road. According to magazine reviews, it clings to corners with the tenaciousness of a sports car.

All 500s are powered by a spunky, 16-valve, 1.4-liter in-line four-cylinder engine. Fiat rates the engine output at 101 horsepower and 98 pounds-feet of torque, which looks rather uninspiring on paper.The impression from behind the wheel is totally different. The engine’s eagerness, along with the 500’s light weight and slick-shifting fivespeed manual transmission, provide more pop than I could have imagined. If you’re willing to rev the engine to its 6,500-rpm horsepower peak, the 500 will reward you with spirited takeoffs. Highway passing power is also more than acceptable, providing you downshift first. I didn’t drive a 500 with the available six-speed automatic transmission, so I can’t vouch for its peppiness. But according to Fiat, it delivers pretty good mileage: 27 city/34 highway mpg. The manual transmission model is significantly better, earning an EPA rating of 30 city/38 highway mpg. Given its 10.5-gallon gas tank, that should mean only occasional trips to the filling station. Which is a good thing not only because of the price of gas, but also because of the attention attracted by the
