Local area during war: Old times not forgotten

Politics were heated; plenty of men served. By TOM MOONEY Times Leader Correspondent

B

y early spring of1861, people throughout America’s northern states knew that something very bad – a war or the dissolution of the American union – was threatening. Some, however, sensed opportunity. We are living in “perilous times,” Wilkes-Barre store owner William H. Spessing announced in an ad in the Luzerne Union newspaper. Therefore, he said, local people should rush to his Public Square emporium and stock up on everything from cloth to lard, all of which he was making available at “panic prices.” The nearby Continental Saloon took a different tack, urging men to keep calm and stop in for “the very best brands of wine, liquor and cigars.” Their wives could pass the time in a special “ice cream bar” next door. The news columns, however, contained something more ominous: Dispatches announcing that seven states of the Deep South had seceded and formed

State efforts help limit local taxes property tax bills to 1 percent of homes’ assessed values, 2 percent for farmland and rental property and 3 percent for business property. Last November, voters amended the constitution to make the caps harder to undo. Schools took a $450 million cut in state aid during the current budget cycle. LOUISIANA Statewide voters in November narrowly defeated a proposed constitutional amendment referred to the ballot by legislators that would have prohibited some local governments from increasing property tax rates by more than 2.5 percent following a reassessment of property values, unless they got voter approval for larger increases. . MINNESOTA A plan passed by the Repub-

On March 10, Republican Gov. Dave Heineman signed a pair of bills into law — one cutting aid to cities, counties and natural resource districts by $44 million over two years; the other curtailing cities’ ability to tax the vehicles of people who commute to work from the suburbs. NEW HAMPSHIRE The New Hampshire House and Senate in March each passed separate versions of bills that would restore the ability of local governments to adopt tax and spending caps. NEW JERSEY Republican Gov. Gov. Chris Christie cut aid to local governments last year while also signing legislation capping local spending and property tax growth at 2 percent per year,

with some exceptions. NEW YORK New York’s Republican-led Senate has passed a proposal by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo that would cap local property tax increases at 2 percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. The bill, which awaits an Assembly vote, would allow higher tax hikes only under certain conditions. WISCONSIN Republican Gov. Scott Walker has proposed to slash aid to public schools while simultaneously restricting schools from making up for the loss with property taxes. His budget plan also would bar any property tax increases for counties and technical colleges, except to account for new construction.

lawmakers and their aides, have led to sworn testimony that many staffers spent significant periods of their work hours working on elections or performing menial personal errands for their bosses. There have already been 10 convictions, two acquittals and a mistrial, with additional trials set to begin later this year.

the Harrisburg operations of the Capitol Police Department, run by the Department of General Services. Outside Harrisburg, legislative employees tend to focus on constituent service, most commonly help with government agencies — signing people up for state programs, spreading information about state programs, troubleshooting bureaucratic problems and involving themselves in all manner of federal or local issues. The two chambers together maintain about 400 district offices scattered around the state, plus dozens of satellite offices that are open only a few hours a week. In the Senate alone, district office rent and utilities have cost nearly $5 million since the start of 2009. The contingent assigned last year to Rep. Bud George, DClearfield, who has one of the larger House staffs, included seven legislative assistants, two research analysts, an executive director, a communications specialist, an executive assistant and a lawyer. While some have since left the House, they were paid a combined $645,000 last year. "Years ago you guys said I was the roughest guy to work for," said George, the ranking member on the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee. "You’re damn right — I’m there to please and to help the people." Rep. Brendan Boyle, D-Philadelphia, said his two district offices, eight miles apart, have assisted more than 11,000 constituents in a little over two years in office. He said they worked on dozens and dozens of topics, among them birth certificates, library funding, sinkholes, breast cancer screening and snowmobile registration. Forty-two times they were contacted regarding jury duty alone. "If there are other offices where their staffers are sitting around with nothing to do, I would love to send them to my district offices," Boyle said. Some offices are busier than others, and House district workers say they have been told how they rank compared to others in, for example, number of pieces of PennDOT mail handled. Rep. Mario Scavello, R-Monroe, says he runs his operations like a business, complete with evening and weekend hours to serve his commuter-heavy district. "I have a factory," he said. "On any given day you can have 60 people walk in here." On the other hand, Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon, closed a district office in Robesonia, about 12 miles west of Reading, after tracking data showed very little demand for it. "The problem was we were averaging less than one person walking into that office a week," Folmer said. "You’re talking about 52 in a year’s time." If the Legislature were to make significant reductions in its own employee complement, it would go against a trend that dates back more than four decades. The state Commission for Legislative Modernization reported in 1969 there were 651 people working for the legislative branch. The NCSL said the staff more than doubled over the ensuing decade. By 2003, it had doubled again to reach more or less its current size.

The Associated Press

Since January 2010, at least 10 states have enacted or proposed new limits on the ability of schools, cities or counties to raise local taxes. At the same time, most states have cut the amount of aid provided to local governmental entities. Here’s a look at some of those state laws and proposals. FLORIDA Legislative committees have advanced a proposed constitutional amendment limiting annual increases in the assessed value of properties not used as a person’s primary home to 3 percent, instead of the current 10 percent. INDIANA In January 2010, an Indiana law took full effect limiting

lican-led House would cut state aid by $250 million over the next two years to Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth while also reinstating a local property tax cap that had expired. MISSOURI Statewide voters last November voted to prohibit cities from enacting new taxes on the earnings of people who live or work there and requiring local referendums on existing earnings taxes in St. Louis and Kansas City. That came after Missouri lawmakers failed to fully fund schools, reduced state payments to counties for holding prisoners and declined to change a state law preventing counties from making their own midyear budget cuts.

‘Father Rick’ to address May 2011 Marywood grads The Rev. Richard “Rick” Frechette, director of medical services for Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos International, will be the keynote speaker at Marywood University’s commencement on May 8 at the Mohegan Sun Arena, Wilkes-Barre Township. He will be awarded an honorary doctorate during the ceremony, along with two additional honorary degree recipients, the Rev. Thomas J. O’Hara, retiring president of King’s College, and the Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, outgoing president of The University of Scranton. The Rev. Frechette, better known as Father Rick, became a Passionist priest in 1979. After a few years as a parish priest in Baltimore, he met the Rev. William B. Wasson, founder of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters,” and worked in Mexico in 1983 at an old hacienda that had been converted to a home for nearly 1,000 orphaned and abandoned children. He’s had other stops in Honduras and Haiti, where the two priests decided to begin an orphanage. WILKES-BARRE

Their complaint is separate from other suits that arose out of the criminal charges filed in 2009. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A woman and her son, who was incarcerated by former Judge Mark Ciavarella, filed suit against him and others already sued as a result of the Luzerne County juvenile justice scandal. James Gillette of Lackawanna County said he was denied the right to an attorney when he appeared before Ciavarella, a claim raised by other juveniles who said their constitutional rights were violated by him when he presided in juvenile court.

Gillette said he went before Ciavarella to face charges of simple assault, terroristic threats, harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief from a domestic dispute with his mother. Because of decisions made by Ciavarella, Gillette said he “was incarcerated almost continuously from June 2004 through October 2008” and suffered “deprivation of personal liberty, loss of positive sense of well-being,” and, among other things, “the detrimental effects of the stigma placed on him by his time spent in detention.” Besides the former judges, other defendants included: Robert Powell, former co-owner of the detention centers; Robert Mericle, the builder of the centers.

Taking to the skies

Marywood’s Aviators’ Club offers flight tips, rides to raise funds for Angel Flight. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

PITTSTON TWP. – Area residents took flight for a good cause Saturday at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. The Aviators’ Club of Marywood University hosted its sixth annual Aviation Exploration Day at the Tech Aviation Flight School next to the airport’s passenger terminal. Marywood Aviation Exploration Day gave the public the chance “to learn how aviation is done,” said Marywood Aviators Club President Darrin Long, while raising money for Angel Flight, a non-profit organization that provides free air transportation for sick persons who need to fly but can’t afford it, as well as charitable organizations. The event, sponsored by Tech Aviation Flight School, Saker Aviation and the airport, featured basket raffles, children’s activities, food and live music performed by Marywood students, and 15 aircraft on display, including period military planes and a Life Flight helicopter. But for most attending Saturday, the sightseeing rides in single-engine airplanes offered for $15 held the greatest attraction.

S. JOHN WILKIN/THE TIMES LEADER

A T-6 SNJ aircraft was on hand for the public during Aviation Exploration Day at the airport.

“It was better than I thought,” said 8-year-old Max Loiacono moments after taking a flight with his grandfather, Carl Mozeleski of Clarks Summit, his first time in an airplane. “It was rough, but not too bad.” Tickets for the flights sold out by noon, less than one hour into the program. Long said his group hoped to offer up to115 flights Saturday, but had to reduce that number to about 70 because one of the three Piper single-engine planes was grounded in State College due to inclement weather there. Still, organizers were optimistic about topping the $2,000 they raised for Angel Wings at last year’s event, and the weather Saturday, with sunny

skies and temperatures in the mid-50s, certainly helped. “It’s a nice day,” Pat Dougherty, of Dupont, said as he waited with his daughter Megan for their turn to take a ride. “After being pent up all winter, it’s nice to get out. … It will be nice to see the area too.

Connecticut man pursued, charged in city hit and run A Connecticut man faces charges following a hit-and-run accident and police pursuit Friday afternoon, police said. According to city police: Jeffrey Narkewicz of Plainfield fled after the bucket truck he was driving struck the open door of a car on Hazle Avenue around 2:40 p.m. The occupant of the car, Abdul Lafeet Martinez struck his head as a result of the impact. Police responded to a report of the truck being operated recklessly in the area of Barney Street. An officer approached the passenger side of the truck and Narkewicz started to drive away, but the officer was able to jump on the truck. The officer pounded on the cab in an attempt to have the driver stop; however, Narkewicz swerved the truck on the roadway trying to throw off the officer. Several marked vehicles blocked the roadway and forced the truck to stop on Sambourne Street. Narkewicz was forcibly removed from the driver’s seat by police and two officers were injured during the arrest. Narkewicz was taken into custody on suspicion of drunken driving and transported to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for a blood alcohol test. He was arraigned by the district judge on duty on charges of driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident involving injury, fleeing and eluding police and reckless driving.

Libyan forces use guerilla tactics to push into opposition territory

Rebels face military surge By SEBASTIAN ABBOT Associated Press

AJDABIYA, Libya — Government soldiers and rebel gunmen battled in the streets of a key front-line city Saturday after the Libyan military used shelling and guerrillastyle tactics to open its most serious push into opposition territory since international airstrikes began. NATO airstrikes, meanwhile, hammered at Gadhafi’s ammunition stockpiles and armored forces, destroying 17 tanks. At least eight people were killed in the fighting over Aj-

dabiya, a hospital official said. Recapturing the city would give the Libyan military a staging ground to attack the rebels’ main stronghold, Benghazi, about 100 miles farther east along the coastal highway. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces were approaching Benghazi when they were driven back by the international air campaign launched last month to protect civilians and ground Gadhafi’s aircraft. For the rebels, losing the city would effectively bottle them into a coastal strip of eastern Libya and allow gov-

ernment forces to more tightly squeeze the few opposition pockets in the rest of the country, including the besieged western port of Misrata, where heavy clashes continued Saturday for a second day. NATO airstrikes hit armored vehicles firing on civilians near both Misrata and Ajdabiya, said Canadian Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard, who commands the Libya operation.

Forces fire on mourners

security forces fired on S yrian mourners at a funeral for slain pro-

testers Saturday as authorities vowed to crush any new unrest from a threeweek uprising that showed no sign of letting up even as the death toll topped 170. Activists vowed to accelerate their movement with daily protests nationwide, bringing new pressure on President Bashar Assad’s authoritarian regime. Assad has answered the tens of thousands of protesters with both force and limited concessions that have failed to appease an emboldened movement inspired by the Arab uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. CAIRO

Protesters create barricade Thousands of demonstrators barricaded themselves in Cairo’s central square with burned-out troop carriers and barbed wire Saturday and demanded the removal of the military council ruling Egypt, infuriated after soldiers stormed their protest camp overnight, killing at least one person and injuring 71 others. In a sign the confrontation could escalate, the military warned Saturday evening that it will clear Tahrir Square of protesters “with all force and decisiveness” for life to get back to normal. The warning could presage a repeat of the scene before dawn, when hundreds of soldiers, including a highly trained parachute unit, swarmed into Tahrir Square, firing in the air and beating protesters with clubs and shocking some with electrical batons. Troops dragged away protesters, while others staggered away bleeding from beatings and gunshot wounds. Witnesses reported two killed, though the Health Ministry insisted there was only one death.

Wildfire still out of control A massive wildfire that has burned more than 61,000 acres in West Texas remains out of control. Alan Craft of the Texas Forest Service said Saturday the fire was "0 percent contained" and he expected it to continue spreading with dry, windy conditions in the area. About 100 members of the Texas Forest Service have been fighting fire by land and air, with help from local volunteer fire departments. Two unoccupied homes have been burned, and some livestock has been killed. So far, no towns have been threatened. Craft says pipe cutting sparked the fire on Wednesday. More hot, dry weather was expected to contribute to a high fire danger all weekend. CHESTER, PA.

One killed at teen party Shots rang out in a suburban Philadelphia social hall where a teenage party was being held, killing one person and sending eight others to the hospital, authorities said Saturday. Police in Chester, where a state of emergency was declared last summer because of crime concerns, said a suspect was taken into custody after officers were called to the Minaret Temple No. 174 around 11:30 p.m. Friday and found "numerous victims." Police said nine people were transported to Crozer Chester Medical Center, where one died.

Japan nuke resolution years away Making site of plant safe, removing destroyed equipment could take decades at exorbitant cost. By MARI YAMAGUCHI and CHARLES HUTZLER Associated Press

TOKYO — Once Japan’s leaky nuclear complex stops spewing radiation and its reactors cool down, making the site safe and removing the ruined equipment is going to be a messy ordeal that could take decades and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Radiation has covered the area around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and blanketed parts of the complex, making the job of “decommissioning” the plant — rendering it safe so it doesn’t threaten public health and the environment — a bigger task than usual.

Toshiba Corp., which supplied four of Fukushima’s six reactors, including two on which General Electric Co. collaborated, submitted a roadmap this past week to the plant’s operator for decommissioning the crippled reactors. The study, done with three other companies, projects that it would take about 10 years to remove the fuel rods and the reactors and contain other radioactivity at the site, said Keisuke Omori of Toshiba. That timeline is far faster than those for other nuclear accidents and contains a big caveat: The reactors must first be stabilized and cooled, goals that have eluded emergency teams struggling with cascading problems in the month since the devastating tsunami damaged their cooling systems. Omori said the extent of damage to the reactors and other problems still need to be assessed. Getting a quick resolution to the Fukushima crisis would give a boost to a na-

New York police look for possible serial killer Four bodies found by beach highway in past 2 weeks after four found late last year. By FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press

OAK BEACH, N.Y. — While investigators scour miles of desolate New York beachfront from the tops of fire trucks and map plans for officers to traverse a daunting morass of thicket on horseback in search of more victims, dozens of detectives are inspecting credit card receipts, telephone records, old traffic tickets and even applications for clamming licenses in the hunt for a possible serial killer. Eight victims have now been found dumped just steps from Ocean Parkway, a highway leading to the popular Jones Beach State Park.

He could kill somebody else.” Investigators following up on the disappearance of a Jersey City, N.J., woman seen working as a Craigslist escort in the area last spring, happened upon the corpses of four women late last year. They were identified as missing prostitutes who also booked clients over the Internet. Four more bodies were found when officers returned to the area in the past two weeks. They are unidentified. All eight were found within a three-mile radius on the north side of the parkway. Detectives said it appears some victims had been dead for a long time. Investigators believe the four women found in December were likely killed somewhere else and dumped by the beach highway. The first went missing in 2007; a second in 2009 and the remaining two in June and September 2010.

Award-winning film director Sidney Lumet dies at age 86 DAVID B. CARUSO and BOB THOMAS Associated Press

NEW YORK — Sidney Lumet, the award-winning director of such acclaimed films as “Network,” “Serpico,” “Dog Day Afternoon” and “12 Angry Men,” has died. He was 86. Lumet’s death was confirmed by relatives and friends, who said he died early Saturday morning at his Manhattan home. He had suffered from lymphoma. A Philadelphia native, Lumet moved to New York City as a child, and it became the location of choice for more than 30 of his films. Although he freely admitted to a lifelong love affair with

the city, he often showed its grittier side. Such dramas as “Prince of the City,” “Q&A,” “Night Falls on Manhattan” and “Serpico” looked at the hard lives and corruptibility of New York police officers. “Dog Day Afternoon” told the true-life story of two social misfits who set in motion a chain of disastrous events when they tried to rob a New York City bank on an oppressively hot summer afternoon. “It’s not an anti-L.A. thing,” Lumet said of his New York favoritism in a 1997 interview. “I just don’t like to live in a company town.”

Although he didn’t work in Los Angeles, the director maintained good relations with the Hollywood studios, partly because he finished his pictures under schedule and budget. His television beginnings had schooled him in working fast, and he rarely shot more than four takes of a scene. He was nominated four times for directing Academy Awards, and actors in his films won17 Oscars. But Lumet himself never won. Lumet did receive an honorary Oscar AP FILE PHOTO in 2005 for lifetime achievement. He received the Directors Guild of America’s Director Sidney Lumet holds up the Award for lifetime achievement in 1993. honorary Oscar he received in 2005.

inated county jobs when he became a county commissioner in 1980, though he can’t say where staff reductions may be warranted until the new county manager assesses staffing levels and spending. “I have no problem making cuts,” said Brominski, who has also worked as a school teacher. He signed the bill to begin the Wyoming Valley leveeraising project in 1982 and also pushed for security-related improvements as a commissioner, including identification badges for all county workers and installation of metal detectors, though the latter wasn’t implemented until years later. “I’m more proactive than reactive. I like to get things done beforehand,” Brominski said. Brominski serves on the home rule transition personnel recruitment subcommittee. He supports a national search for the new manager who will run day-to-day county operations and a local search for division head positions. The manager should have at least several years of government management experience, he said. “I just don’t think that a person operating outside can walk into that position with-

Edward Brominski said he is capable of compromising and working with others if he’s elected to the new 11-member Luzerne County Council, but he also promises to speak up if he sees problems or waste that aren’t being addressed. “I think I know the areas to look at. I really do. And I’m not afraid to go into them and find them and expose them,” the former county commissioner recently told a Times Leader endorsement board. The Swoyersville retiree said he stood up to his superiors when he worked as county assessment director from 1992 to 1999, refusing to create fill several positions “created for people” because the jobs were not necessary. He said he also exposed questionable expenses and falsified travel vouchers, but the administration at the time refused to address his concerns. “A year later, I lost my job,” said Brominski, who was unsuccessful in his 1999 race for county commissioner and 2009 run for county controller. Brominski also said he elim-

Brominski got behind the county’s switch to home rule government, which goes into effect when the new council takes office. He believes the new council must get more involved with the leaders of area cities and municipalities to attract development and jobs to the county. “I’m excited about home rule. I’m excited about the prospect of change for the better,” Brominski said. “I would truly like to be a part of it.”

Casey Evans said he would publish his phone number and e-mail address and set up an office at his own expense to meet with citizens if he’s elected to Luzerne County Council. “The biggest part of this job for me is going to be constituent services, seeing what I can do to help other people,” said the freelance political consultant from Lehman Township. Evans said he’s traveled the nation as a political consultant, learning what people expect from their elected officials. “Speaking with these people I’ve had the unique opportunity that not a lot of people are actually afforded to listen to what they have to say, to listen to the problems that they have, not just here in Northeastern Pennsylvania but all around the country,” Evans said. “I really feel that I have a better grasp than most on the issues facing people here in Luzerne County.” Evans said he’s been researching best practices in neighboring counties to come up with ideas that could work in Luzerne County. For exam-

ple, he wants to require purchase orders for every county expense over $50. He also wants the county to host an inexpensive website to publicly post every expense of $25 or more. The posting would give citizens an easy way to monitor the spending of their tax dollars, he said. “If they think something shady is going on, they could catch it right “The big- away,” Evans said. gest part The site of this job will also provide more acfor me is countability going to be over the counmanager, constituent ty who has latiservices, tude to authorize certain inseeing dividual purwhat I can chases withdo to help out council approval, he other peo- said.

Learn some local historical facts about the Civil War

COURTESY OF THE LUZERNE COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Veterans gather in front of the GAR Hall, which stood on South Main Street in Wilkes-Barre, in 1929.

Regiments: When the U.S. Army was dramatically expanded in the Civil War, the basic unit of organization was the regiment, organized at the state level. At full strength, an infantry regiment consisted of 10 companies of 100 men each. In actuality, few regiments ever approached this strength. As the war progressed, most regiments had no more than a few hundred men. Battle Names: Many Civil War battle have two names. That came about because the United States’ policy was to name a battle after the nearest river or body

of water, while the Confederacy’s policy was to name it after the nearest town. Holidays: Decoration Day was established in 1868 to honor those who lost their lives in the Civil War. It is now known as Memorial Day and honors all America’s war dead. In his famous Gettysburg Address of 1863, President Lincoln called for a November day to be set aside for giving thanks, resulting in the establishment of Thanksgiving. Survivors: The last U.S. Army Civil War veteran to die was Albert Woolson, a drummer boy

with a Minnesota regiment, who died in 1956 at 106. While most Civil War troops never heard of television, Woolson was interviewed on a TV show. Black troops: Moses Morris, a free black man who served in the fabled 54th Massachusetts Infantry and was portrayed in the movie “Glory”, moved to WilkesBarre after the war. He is buried in the City Cemetery. Pensions: In 1890 the federal government awarded pensions to Civil War veterans. A standard amount was $5 a month. The average working person at the time

made less than $500 a year. Preparedness: About 20 years after the Civil War ended, some Wyoming Valley veterans petitioned the federal government to organize a local infantry regiment to serve as a reserve force. That regiment, the 9th Infantry, was converted into the 109th Field Artillery as World War I neared. Literature: The Rev. George Peck, a Kingston clergyman of the19th century, was the grandfather of Stephen Crane, author of the famed Civil War novel “The Red Badge of Courage.”

the Confederate States of America. Everyone awaited the U.S. government’s response: would there be a war? That war was not long in coming. At daybreak of April 12, 1861, artillery of the Confederacy began shelling Fort Sumter, a United States installation designed to protect the harbor of Charleston, S.C. Later in the morning, the U.S. Army’s guns in the fort returned fire. The Civil War was on. Tuesday will be the 150th anniversary of the start of that war, America’s fabled war of “brother against brother,” North against South and blue against gray. It was a war that would change the nation profoundly and remain a source of pride, anger, frustration and hope right through to our L O C A L E V E N T S own day. Tuesday: The Lindhill Institute of Preparations in Pa. In ways, Pennsylvania had been preparing for the war for some time. Gov. Andrew Curtin had no sooner taken office in January of 1861 when he announced that Pennsylvania would unconditionally support the union. In Wilkes-Barre, leading citizens called meetings to discuss the community’s response to events as they unfolded, including the raising of regiments of troops. But even top public officials believed the war would be a brief one. Pennsylvania was ordered to provide 14 regiments of men to serve just three months, the time in which federal authorities believed the war would be fought and won. Luzerne County, which included the area that later became Lackawanna County, supplied one of these early regiments – the 8th Pennsylvania Infantry. It was formed largely from local militias with names like “Wyoming Yagers” and “Wyoming Artillerists,” which historians say were more like social clubs than fighting forces. Politicians’ predictions, of course, proved terribly wrong. By the time the war was really under way in summer of1861, America’s 90-day regiments were being discharged and sent home. After the U.S. Army’s disastrous July 21 defeat in the war’s first major battle, at Bull Run in Virginia, preparations all over the country were stepped up. Pennsylvania would eventually raise more than 400,000 troops. Luzerne County men flocked to join many different regiments as fast as they were organized, generally with leading citizens of the community assuming officer positions.

Shavertown, in cooperation with Wyoming Seminary Upper School, will present “Rally to the Cause,” a 150th anniversary commemoration of the beginning of the Civil War, on Tuesday at 7 a.m. on the school’s back campus green on Maple Avenue, Kingston. The 30-minute commemoration program is free and open to the public. This event will be held rain or shine at the exact hour when federal troops in Fort Sumter, S.C. returned fire upon the Confederates at Charleston Harbor on April 12, 1861. It will include a ceremonial cannon-firing, participation of Civil War re-enactors, and speakers

the Wyoming Valley area even had its own training facility. That was Camp Luzerne, in the present-day borough of Luzerne, described by local historian Sheldon Spear in “Wyoming Valley History Revisited” as lying along what is now Kelly Street. One regiment that trained there was the 143rd Pennsylvania Infantry, the only Civil War regiment entirely trained and equipped within Luzerne County. It would be hard to question Luzerne County’s patriotism during the war. Nearly 3,000 men from the county lost their lives, many to disease rather than to enemy fire, and thousands more suffered injuries, in an era when amputation of an arm or leg was a common means of treating a wounded man. But politics was another matter. The area, like much of the North, was bitterly divided over support for the war, particularly as casualties mounted. Some political figures maintained that the cost in lives was excessive. Others supported the war insofar as it was meant to bring the breakaway Confederate states back into the union but disapproved of Camp Luzerne what they felt was a secret underSo many Luzerne County men lying purpose – to abolish slavery joined, in fact, that by mid-1862 and allow the estimated 6 million

black people in the South to go wherever they wanted to go. That division had erupted in Wyoming Valley years before the war started. The fabled “Underground Railroad,” a chain of homes of people sympathetic to escaped slaves fleeing to Canada, ran through Wilkes-Barre. William C. Gildersleeve, a downtown merchant who made no secret of his abolitionist beliefs, suffered harassment and attacks and once was saved from an angry mob only by the timely intervention of a clergyman. The division continued through the war, especially after the U.S. government resorted to a draft to build up the military’s ranks, and it was revealed that people with money could buy their way out of military service. In summer of 1863, as bloody anti-draft riots raged in New York City, Army troops were sent to Scranton and Williamsport to protect government property and make sure no harm came to draft officials. Arnold Shankman, in “The Pennsylvania Antiwar Movement, 1861-1865,” tells how Columbia County was such a hotbed of antiwar feeling that in summer of 1864, hundreds of Army troops under Gen. Darius Couch were sent to the area to

find a cache of arms and band of subversives federal authorities had heard of. While the so-called “Fishingcreek Confederacy” proved little but rumor, some violence did occur when in July Assistant Provost Marshal J. Stewart Robinson was fatally shot in an ambush while pursuing a draft resister. Anti-war sentiment So strong was dissent throughout the area that in the presidential election of 1864, Luzerne County voters gave “peace” candidate Democrat and former general George McClellan a decided victory over Republican incumbent Lincoln. Despite the drain on manpower, the area’s anthracite coal mines kept producing during the war, since power was vitally needed to fuel the nation’s industry. Miners, however, drew criticism for strikes, and it sometimes took Army troops to keep peace. Dissension or not, though, Northeastern Pennsylvania did its part – and more – in the war. Some stories of wartime service have become local legend. As the 143rd Pennsylvania reluctantly gave ground on the desperate first day of the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, Color Sgt. Ben Crippen turned and shook his fist at the advancing Confederates, paying for his bravery with his life. In the same battle, Col. Robert B. Ricketts’ artillery stood its ground against a furious Confederate assault. Both Crippen and Ricketts are honored today on the battlefield in Adams County. The community rallied strongly to help the war effort. One enterprise was the Home for Friendless Children, an institution begun in Wilkes-Barre to provide care for children whose fathers had been killed. Businessmen George M. Hollenback and William C. Gildersleeve put up $1,000 each to open the facility. By 1865, it had taken in nearly 300 Luzerne County children. Today it is known as the Children’s Service Center. Euphoria of victory Much of the dissent vanished in the euphoria of victory as the Confederacy surrendered and the war ended in April, 1965, four years after it had begun. The Wyoming Valley area prospered through the rest of the 19th century. As part of a booming national industrial economy and magnet for in-migration, WilkesBarre moved from borough to city within a few years of the end of the war and by1900 had passed the 50,000 mark in population. Luzerne County’s population nearly doubled between 1860 and 1870.

Local men who had served in the war were honored citizens, perhaps the most prominent being Henry M. Hoyt, colonel of the 52nd Pennsylvania Infantry, who rose to governor of Pennsylvania in the 1870s. Others included Brig. Gen. Edmund L. Dana, commander of the 143rd Pennsylvania Infantry, who became a state judge. Amid the prosperity, veterans kept the spirit of their service alive by forming the Grand Army of the Republic, or the GAR. The castle-like “temple” on WilkesBarre’s South Main Street stood until the 1960s. Some even chose to remain together in death. Plymouth’s Shawnee Cemetery and others have sections in which veterans are buried side by side, drawn up forever as their old regiment. The community as well honored service, even as the Civil War receded into the past. Well into the 20th century, the death of a Civil War veteran was typically marked with an article topped by a solemn headline in local newspapers. Generals in Heights Cross streets in the growing Heights section of Wilkes-Barre were named for Lincoln, Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles and generals Hancock, Grant, Meade, Sherman, Sheridan and Custer. In the 1920s, Wilkes-Barre’s new high school was named GAR Memorial, in a final salute to the veterans, several of whom put on their old blue uniforms to attend the cornerstone laying. When Alfred W. Gabrio of Hazleton died in 1946 at age 100, the last Luzerne County man who had seen the epic conflict was gone. Only cultural memory remained. Today, hundreds of Luzerne County men and women try to keep the memory of 1861-65 alive. Some meet in the Civil War Round Table. Others, with family

connections to the war, join the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. Then there are those who don uniforms and other period clothing in re-enactments of the events and passions of that longgone time. They study history, spend money and pile on the heavy garments of another century. Yet some did not even have ancestors in America 150 years ago. Why do this? “You can’t really get a good idea what it was like without sweating in the uniform, smelling the gunpowder,” said Ryan Lindbuchler of Wilkes-Barre, a history teacher and former captain of the re-created 81st Pennsylvania. “(The Civil War) was the blast furnace that took us from slavery and a rural country to no-slavery and an industrial country. It’s so important it needs to be commemorated, so we don’t forget.”

centennial at scores of crossroads whose names have become a bitter historical shorthand: Fort Sumter, which launched the war on April 12, 1861, and later Antietam, Shiloh, Vicksburg, Gettysburg, and so many others, all the way to Appomattox. We’ll reflect on more than 600,000 combatants who died, we’ll debate the causes, we’ll talk about slavery’s legacy. Through the years, each Civil War anniversary has mirrored our nation at that point in time. At first, remembering was forgetting, an occasion to bring former foes together to shake hands. Nostalgia for the socalled Lost Cause of the antebellum South defined many observances — even at the Civil War centennial in the early 1960s, ironically coinciding with the civil rights movement. And what does today’s anniversary tell us? In search of answers, an Associated Press reporter embarked on a tour through one scarred swath of the fighting grounds — from Manassas, Va., where the war’s harsh terms first became clear, to ruins still standing along Union Gen. William T. Sherman’s fiery march through Georgia, which put the outcome beyond doubt. Conversations along the way — with scholars, regular folks, Southerners, Northerners, blacks, whites — suggest we’ve matured about the war. It’s a commemoration, not a celebration, this time. What we’re recollecting now is the Civil War AND emancipation, many people say. Yes, there have been secession balls right out of “Gone with the Wind,” but the viewpoint of the 4 million enslaved Americans is part of every serious observance. And one more conclusion: This fight isn’t really past. Even after 150 years, it holds us still.

The Civil War as America’s “brother against brother” conflict is nowhere better illustrated than in the lives and careers of the Butler brothers of Wilkes-Barre. Descended from early Wyoming Valley families the Butlers and the Slocums, among their relatives were Col. Zebulon Butler, of the Battle of Wyoming; Frances Slocum, the young girl kidnapped by American Indians in 1778; and Judge Jesse Fell, inventor of the grate that made possible the burning of anthracite coal and spurred the anthracite industry. But the coming of the Civil War in 1861 divided them. Joseph Lord Butler, born in 1837 and a graduate of Wyoming Seminary, trained in engineering and joined the U.S. Navy in 1858.

In July 1861 — just weeks after the Confederates took Fort Sumter, and Lincoln responded with a call for 75,000 volunteers — Manassas would be the first real test of the opposing armies. Some spectators ventured out from the capital for a look and a picnic on what began as a fine day, expecting the rebels to be quickly dispatched. Instead, they witnessed what became a Confederate rout. “Turn back!” cried Union soldiers in full flight. “We are whipped!” This war, it suddenly became clear, would be deadly earnest.

This Week in The Civil War First shots at Fort Sumter Before dawn on April 12, 1861, Confederate batteries unleash artillery fire on federal troops defending Fort Sumter on South Carolina’s seacoast. In a dispatch to The Associated Press, an unnamed correspondent observed the fort’s parapets crumbling under the pounding of artillery. He wrote of gun emplacements being "shot away" and

After public schools were ordered desegregated in the Brown vs. Board of Education decision, localities across the South tried to thwart implementation. Prince Edward County, where Farmville is the seat, closed all of its public schools rather than integrate. Starting in 1959, they were shut for five years, even as the centennial of emancipation was celebrated. (White students attended racially exclusive private academies.) Hundreds of black children were placed with families and schools far from home. Ragland went to Washington, D.C., then in the second year to Philadelphia, later to New York. For other students, though, schooling “just stopped.” Today she remains alert for lingering prejudice, but also hopeful. The county board, she noted, passed a resolution of reconciliation a few years ago. Farmville is near Appomattox, and many tourists stop in search of history. With a half-smile, Ragland said, “And here I am standing right in front of them — living history.” Polarization still very real We move southward into North Carolina, where many battle sites attest to the war’s harsh legacy. Another kind of memorial is found off Exit 177 from Interstate 85: Stagville, a restored plantation, where 900 slaves once worked, is used now for conferences. “When we met, our very first meeting, we met at Stagville,” said professor Freddie Parker, referring to the state’s Civil War sesquicentennial commission, of which he is a member. He was speaking in his office in the history department at North Carolina Central University, a historically black school nearby in Durham. Besides his Ph.D., Parker brought to the commission his personal history, including enslaved ancestors. He told of how the commission determined to offer “a balanced commemoration,” recognizing all viewpoints. When staff members created a website, groups of Confederate descendants objected that their side was underrepresented, which led to more discussion, some of it heated, among commission members. “I remember ... an older indi-

shells falling "thick and fast." "The ball has opened. War is inaugurated ... Fort Sumter has returned the fire and brisk cannonading has been kept up," the correspondent wrote. The fierce barrage drags on with barely a pause for 34 hours, forcing the garrison’s surrender. No one is killed in the bombardment. But at a ceremony marking the fort’s surrender a day later, a cannon explodes

vidual, every time something came up about the South, the North, he put it out there: ‘The War of Aggression.’ And everybody knew his position.” But as the meetings continued, and members listened to each other’s side of things, the man began to join with those pushing, for instance, for an official state memorial to black struggles, too. “He was one of the primary ones ... And tears in his eyes. He made a complete flip.” And how does Parker process this? “That people are continuing to evolve. People are not static, stagnant beings,” he said. Still, it will take the nation time “before we get to the point where we are less emotional, where we’re less polarized” about the war. How much more time? “A hundred and 50 years?” he ventured. Atlanta: Ruin and renewal From near Chattanooga, Tenn., the Union army took aim at the rail and commercial hub of Atlanta, which Sherman would set alight in 1864. Firsthand signs of actual destruction are rare now — but outside of Atlanta, you come to Sweetwater Creek and what remains of a five-story textile mill, which supplied cloth for Confederate forces. In July 1864, Sherman’s troops burned the mill. Today, wind whispers through the forlorn brick ruins. On a recent day, Betty Fugate, a native Georgian, brought out her grandsons, Caleb and Barrett Clark, on spring break from New Hampshire, for the learning experience — “Why it was destroyed — that it produced things that helped the Southern soldiers” — but also for exercise on a pretty day. Ruin and renewal: If that’s a theme of any reflection on the Civil War, then Atlanta manifests it as well as anywhere. After Sherman’s “march to the sea,” after Reconstruction, after Jim Crow and the tragedies and triumphs of the civil rights movement, the burned city grew into an economic powerhouse and, among other things, a prime job destination nowadays for black college graduates. When the Olympics came in 1996, Atlantans could laugh at a T-shirt caricaturing Sherman

during a salute to the Union flag, leaving one dead and several wounded — the first casualties of what will become the bloodiest conflict in the nation’s history. Over the next four years, Union forces will seek to win back the fort until Gen. William T. Sherman’s troops retake control on February 17, 1865. By the time the war ends weeks later, more than 600,000 lives will have been lost.

with the caption “The original torchbearer.” Where the healing begins Our trip through the war must end by looping back — to Appomattox, which we passed en route south and which was where, for practical purposes, the Civil War ended. The surrender documents were signed in a handsome porticoed house, which was disassembled after the war. Rebuilding was delayed, and much of the original material rotted away. The foundation and some bricks were reused, but the painstakingly restored structure is something new, perhaps a bit like the nation that was restored here. “Appomattox to me is not the end of something,” said historian Robertson in an interview. “It’s the beginning of modern America.” Now 80, Robertson was executive director of the national Civil War centennial commission 50 years ago and he’s a member of Virginia’s sesquicentennial commission now. The centennial came at a time of peace and economic prosperity, he said, unlike the “negative age we’re living in,” with its wars, economic crises and partisan bickering. “As a historian, I don’t think this nation has been as fractured since the 1850s.” We ought to learn from the war born of that earlier fracture, he said. “Almost three-quarters of a million men died to give us the nation we have today. The sesquicentennial offers us a moment to remember that American democracy rests on one thing and one thing only — a spirit of compromise.” David Cummings stood with his friend and fellow Civil War devotee, Michael Overcash. Both had Confederate ancestors — Cummings’ forebear killed at Shiloh, Tenn., Overcash’s captured at Fredericksburg, Va. “This is where the healing had to begin, right here,” Cummings said. He mused about the outcome: “Homes destroyed, lives destroyed ... I don’t think you’re going to get rid of bigotry. I think we have a long way to go. And I think our country is still healing. “But right here they said, ‘It’s over.”’

Asante Project,” (Asante is Swahili for thank you) is similar to community projects undertaken to commemorate O’Hara’s installation as president in 1999. O’Hara will be leaving in July for East Africa, where he taught in the mid 1990’s. King’s has foreign exchange and academic programs in Bangladesh, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, said O’Hara. After a year-long sabbatical, he will return to King’s and resume his position as a politi-

cal science professor. Mayor Tom Leighton helped out by raking leaves and spreading mulch at the Madison Street Park before heading off to other cleanup sites throughout the city. The college and the city have participated in a number of joint ventures to benefit the community, said Leighton. Sporting a gray King’s College hoodie while raking dead leaves along a chain link fence at the park, O’Hara straightened to take a break for a moment. “The students wanted to do something to thank me,” he said. “And the way they thanked me was to do a service project, which is really wonderful.”

Skating away bullying problems WILKES-BARRE – Families gathered at the Coal Street Ice Rink on Saturday afternoon for food, drinks, ice skating and a chance to learn how to handle the challenge of bullying in the community and online. Children who attended a 30minute discussion on bullying led by Luzerne County Detective Chaz Balogh were given a token for free skate rentals and food. Bullying is by no means a new problem but it has taken on new dimensions with the advent of cyber-bullying. A recent spate of suicides related to bullying have also raised fears and awareness about the issue. Balogh, who admitted to having been bullied when he was a child, illustrated how bullying has become warped in the information age. “When we were younger, we could go home at night or on the weekends and we could get a break from the people One of the best methods who were bullying us. Now, the officials kids go home have identiand they can’t get away from fied in combating bully- it because it is happening on ing is the the Internet constant too,” Balogh said. raising of District Atawareness. torney Jackie Musto Carroll agreed and added her concerns over the long lasting effects of Internet bullying. “Once you post something online, you can’t take it back. It’s there forever,” Musto Carroll said. “We are facing a nationwide epidemic.” The biggest concern the two addressed was that of suicide. “We try to remind kids to be themselves and that they are not alone,” Balogh said. “When kids try to hurt themselves, they’re applying a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” One of the best methods the officials have identified in combating bullying is the constant raising of awareness. “When we go out and talk to these kids we find that some of them aren’t even aware that they are part of the bullying process,” Musto Carroll said. She said t those who stand by and allow bullying to take place often do a great deal of harm by enabling bullies and refusing to help the victims. Musto Carroll co-sponsored the event with community diversity advocate Angel L. Jirau. The retired Army and Navy veteran has been organizing events like this in the area for around nine years. Jirau shared his belief that problems, such as bullying, which affect all elements of the community equally, are actually opportunities for different parts of the community to come together in order to face shared challenges. “If we work together as a community, there is nothing that we cannot conquer, Jirau

Wolfe cites experience as township auditor

By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Wayne Wolfe was largely motivated to run for Luzerne County Council because of his experience as an elected Plymouth Township auditor. He worked with elected officials who turned around an inherited financial mess, reducing the township’s debt from $1 million to about $250,000. These officials “changed the culture” of the municipality, he said. “I have seen personally what a group of individuals can do,” said the lifelong township resident. “I know what can happen when people get together and focus on doing the right thing.” He was also inspired by the voters’ approval of a switch to home rule government, which he supported. “I think that the people of Luzerne County very strongly and very clearly set a new agenda for this county. I think that this is a unique opportunity for a group of people to step forward to carry their new agenda forward and make the decisions that need to be made to do right by all of the citizens,” Wolfe said. Wolfe said he views the council seat as an extension of his commitment to community service. In addition to his public outreach work as staffing and volunteer services director for the local American Red Cross Wyoming Valley Chapter, he

serves on the Luzerne County Children and Youth Advisory Board and is active with the county’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program. He is also on an allocation committee for the United Way of Wyoming Valley, a King’s College health services program advisory board and serves as moderator for the governing body of Presbyterian churches in the region. Wolfe said he would commit to conducting county business in the open, treating everyone fairly and remaining loyal to county taxpayers and residents. The voters he approached with his nomination petition, without fail, paused in the midst of writing down their information to tell him that he must represent them. “It’s their county, and they’re looking for loyal people to serve them and do the best they can. That’s what I’ll try to do,” Wolfe said. Wolfe has worked in human resources for at least five years and said he would want the new county manager to have three to five years of experience in managing a governmental organization about the size of Luzerne County. “I think a track record speaks for itself. Someone who has actually been effective will in my view gather a lot of support for the kind of work that needs to be done,” Wolfe said. He said he’s eager to analyze the county budget but wants to

Divided gov’t passes 1st test WASHINGTON — A lastminute budget deal forged amid bluster and tough bargaining averted an embarrassing federal shutdown, cut billions in spending and provided the first major test of the divided government that voters ushered in five months ago. Working late into Friday night, congressional and White House negotiators finally agreed on a plan to pay for government operations through the end of September while trimming $38.5 billion in spending. Lawmakers then approved a measure to keep the government running through next Friday while the details of the new spending plan are written into legislation. Obama signed the short-term measure without fanfare Saturday. Congressional approval of the actual deal is expected in the middle of next week. "Americans of different beliefs came together again," President Barack Obama said from the White House Blue Room, a setting chosen to offer a clear view of the Washington Monument over his right shoulder. The agreement was negotiated by Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The administration was poised to shutter federal services, from national parks to taxseason help centers, and to send furlough notices to hundreds of thousands of federal workers. All sides insisted they wanted

to avoid that outcome, which at times seemed inevitable. Shortly after midnight, White House budget director Jacob Lew issued a memo instructing departments and agencies to continue normal operations. Boehner said the deal came after "a lot of discussion and a long fight." He won an ovation from his rank and file, including the new tea party adherents whose victories last November shifted control of the House to the GOP. Reid declared the deal "historic." The deal marked the end of a three-way clash of wills. It also set the tone for coming confrontations over raising the government’s borrowing limit, the spending plan for the budget year that begins Oct. 1 and long-term deficit reduction. In the end, all sides claimed victory.

M. Rasemas, 81, of NeP aulette wark, Del., passed away peace-

fully Friday, April 8, 2011, at her home surrounded by her loving family. Born on June 3, 1929, in Kingston, Mrs. Rasemas was a daughter of the late Mary and Paul Gwizdalowski. Her parents, who were both natives of Poland, provided her with a strong sense of pride in her Polish heritage. As a youngster, Mrs. Rasemas worked in New York City, N.Y., as a cigarette girl, and then later as an elevator operator at the McCalpin Hotel. She was a fantastic dancer and spoke beautiful Polish. After marrying her beloved husband, Joseph, in 1950, the two opened their own grocery store in Plymouth. A talented and immaculate homemaker and decorator, Mrs. Rasemas took great pride in caring for her home and family. She had a great affinity for poodles, and greatly enjoyed her two special canine companions, Lily and Phoebe. Mrs. Rasemas was an avid Phillies fan and a longtime member of Our Lady of Fatima Church. Above all else, she will be remembered

most for her wonderful sense of humor and incredible intelligence. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Rasemas was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph L. Rasemas; and seven siblings.

For Republicans, it was the sheer size of the spending cuts. For Obama and Reid, it was casting aside GOP policy initiatives that would have blocked environmental rules and changed a program that provides family planning services. Not all policy provisions were struck. One in the final deal would ban the use of federal or local government funds to pay for abortions in the District of Columbia. A program dear to Boehner that lets District of Columbia students use federally funded vouchers to attend private schools also survived. Republicans had included language to deny federal money to put in place Obama’s year-old health care law. The deal only requires such a proposal to be voted on by the Democraticcontrolled Senate, where it is certain to fall short of the necessary 60 votes. The deal came together after six grueling weeks as negotiators virtually dared each other to shut down the government. Boehner faced pressure from his GOP colleagues to stick as closely possible to the $61 billion in cuts and the conservative policy positions that the House had passed. At one point, Democrats announced negotiators had locked into a spending cut figure — $33 billion. Boehner pushed back and said there was no deal. During a meeting at the White House this past week, Boehner said he wanted $40 billion. The final number fell just short of that. In one dramatic moment, Obama called Boehner on Friday morning after learning that the outline of a deal they had reached with Reid in the Oval Office the night before was not reflected in the pre-dawn staff negotiations. The whole package was in peril. According to a senior administration official, Obama told Boehner that they were the two most consequential leaders and if they had any hope of keeping the government open, their bargain had to be honored and could not be altered by staff. The official described the scene on condition of anonymity to reveal behind-the-scenes negotiations.

Debate surrounds future direction of spending plan controlled by the Republicans

Education money may force welfare cuts By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — A GOP senator’s exchange with Gov. Tom Corbett’s top budget-maker may have provided the best hints about the future direction of the state spending debate currently dominating the agenda in Republican-controlled Harrisburg. Sen. John Gordner, R-Columbia, whose district includes Bloomsburg University, expressed concern during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing last month about Corbett’s proposed cuts to Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities. He also confessed to surprise that Corbett’s spending plan didn’t find what he called significant savings in the state’s broad range of social and human service programs. With a growing group of legislators now unhappy over Corbett’s other proposed cuts to public schools — as well as the four state-related universities, Penn State, Pitt, Temple and Lincoln — the search is on for the money to at least soften the blow. The challenge, in perhaps the tightest budget year that any sitting legislator has faced, is scraping up the money. Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Jake Corman,

R-Centre, calls it the "$2 billion question." All told, Corbett’s proposed cuts to public schools and universiGordner ties add up to more than $1.6 billion, and some people count cuts totaling closer to $2 billion. That includes slashing at least $625 million, or more than 50 percent, of state aid going this year to the 18 universities and more than $1 billion going to public schools, with many of the deepest cuts targeted toward the state’s poorest school districts. The Legislature’s choices will be narrowed by two key demands laid down by Corbett. He wants a budget that requires no tax increases and spends no more than the $27.3 billion he proposed for the 2011-12 fiscal year that starts July 1. The first — and most painless — source of money could be stronger tax collections from a recovering economy that deliver as much as several hundred million more dollars than Corbett has projected. Failing that, the Department of Public Welfare, with its massive, $11.2 billion proposed

budget that holds together the state’s safety net for the poor and disabled, seems to be emerging as the next target. Corman said Senate Republicans will look across all of the state’s agencies for savings, but acknowledged that the Department of Public Welfare must be scrutinized. "It’s not going to be easy," Corman said. "I don’t think there’s any line item that we can just grab, and say, ’Hey, there’s $200 million.’ But clearly (the department is) going to be an area we’re going to have some discussion on and see what we can find." House Republicans have put forward a group of bills designed to cut the state’s costs by cracking down on perceived fraud in the programs. However, they are unable to say how much money their ideas could save, and Corbett himself has downplayed the immediate impact of his own administration’s efforts to attack fraud by stepping up investigations. “I would hope we’re going to be able to find that (savings), I believe we’re going to be able to find that, but I would not balance a budget on anticipated" savings, Corbett said in a press conference last month. Then he added: "Investigations take some time."

TIMES LEADER FILE PHOTO

Then-gubernatorial candidate Tom Corbett discusses issues during interview with The Times Leader Editorial Board last year.

Responding to Gordner, Corbett’s budget secretary, Charles Zogby, said the administration has not had enough time to find savings in the Department of Public Welfare’s budget. Under Corbett’s proposal, the department’s budget would remain essentially flat, according to an analysis by House Democrats. Squeezing more money out of the department is complicat-

ed by the fact that the Corbett administration has already eliminated some programs in it. They include a $23.5 million program that gives counties a flexible pot of money to use for a range of pressing social service needs — a cut that some Republican senators have urged Corbett to reverse. Also, hospitals have complained about cuts that would

mean the loss of $333 million in state and federal help for institutions that provide care to the poor and uninsured. Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Allegheny, said his caucus will look for ways to spend the department’s money more wisely. Costa said the state should be able to save at least $100 million by bringing more Medicaid enrollees into managed care programs, plus another $50 million by consolidating state purchases of prescription drugs. So far, legislators aren’t pushing to cut benefits farther than the Corbett administration’s proposal to limit Medicaid enrollees to six drug prescriptions a month and one annual visit to the dentist. But it may only be a matter of time before Republicans take this route. Michael Froelich of Philadelphia-based Community Legal Services, a nonprofit group that advocates for the poor, said savings can be found in any state agency, not just the Department of Public Welfare. "It’s one of many options," Froelich said. "It doesn’t have to be the only option."

MAIN STREET Continued from Page 1A

Fainberg Furniture & Son. It opened in 1897 – that’s 114 years ago. Stanley Fainberg, the 84year-old grandson of the store’s founder, spends a lot of time in Florida these days. He plays tennis, golf and he rides his bicycle. In a telephone interview, Fainberg recalled Friday how it was back then and why he wants to see a revitalization take place. Stanley remembered when Plymouth had 17,000 residents, compared to the 5,951 now. He remembers the rivalries with neighboring towns. And he recalled a time when you couldn’t rent a storefront on Main Street. “It was just such a wonderful town,” Fainberg said. “On a Friday or Saturday night the sidewalks were crowded with people. Now you can throw a bowling ball down the sidewalk and not hit anyone.” Fainberg said he and his father Sam and grandfather Max have always had that “stick-to-it-tive-ness” about

Now the redevelopment authority owns a former bank building that’s no longer part of any active project, and only roughly $120,000 remains from the county allocation, records show.

Allan Bellas, who was redevelopment authority executive director at that time, suggested the borough consider if private developers would be interested in building retail space at the site, said Mazur. Mazur and Bellas knew each other from serving together on the Wyoming Valley West School Board, and the authority had handled another large project in the borough in the past, said Mazur, who also serves on the redevelopment authority.

The redevelopment authority went ahead with the purchase of the former PNC bank building because it was up for sale and within the project site, Mazur said. The second developer pulled out, in large part due to difficulties negotiating the positioning of the anchor drug store with the state Department of Community and Economic Development, which oversees the distribution of gambling money, Mazur said. Chain drug store owners want their stores set back from the main street to allow parking in front of the buildings, and DCED was more supportive of structur-

The DCED sent Mazur a letter in February 2009 giving the borough 60 days to submit requested documentation about the project, including evidence that the borough sought “significant” public input on the community revitalization strategy. A follow-up letter was sent to Mazur in April 2009 informing him that the allocation was rescinded because none of the requested information was submitted to the state. Mazur said he and other borough officials had every intention of seeking citizen input on the plan, but they wanted to en-

McIlroy stays hot

By JIM MANDELARO For The Times Leader

ROCHESTER, N.Y – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees didn’t play on Friday due to a rainout at Lehigh Valley, but boy did they make up for it Saturday. The Yankees squandered the lead five times and eventually lost 7-6 to the Rochester Red Wings on Jeff Bailey’s two-out solo homer in the bottom of the 12th off Lance PendleRED WINGS ton. “It was back and forth the whole time,” YANKEES said designated hitter Jordan Parraz, who hit the first of four Yankees solo homers. “It seemed like neither team could hold the other down.” The Yankees struck out 15 times – that’s 30 in two games and didn’t score after the seventh inning. Rochester forced extra innings on a one-out homer from Trevor Plouffe in the ninth – one of two hit by the shortstop on Saturday. A standing-room-only crowd of 12,498 turned out under sunny skies for Rochester’s home opener. It was the largest crowd for a Frontier Field opener since 2005. The Yankees got to right-hander Kyle Gibson in the first inning on a two-out single to left by cleanup hitter Jorge Vazquez. The 3-2

Rory McIlroy reacts after making a birdie putt on the 17th hole during the third round of the Masters Saturday in Augusta, Ga. The 21-year-old holds a four-shot lead entering today’s final round.

He walked off course with a 4-shot lead By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The birdie putt from the back of the green. The raised left arm, holding the putter high. The right fist slamming downward when the ball disappeared, followed by a cheer that rocked Augusta National. It was the defining moment for Rory McIlroy late Saturday afternoon at the Masters. And it was loud enough to rattle Tiger Woods. That birdie on the 17th hole — which caused Woods to back off his shot ahead of him on the 18th hole — sent the 21-year-old from Northern Ireland to a 2-under 70 and gave him a four-shot lead going into the final round.

It’s the largest 54-hole lead at the Masters since Woods led by eight strokes in 1997. “It’s a great position to be in,” McIlroy said. “I feel comfortable with my game, comfortable with the way I prepared, and all of a sudden I’m finally feeling comfortable on this golf course. With a combination like that, you’re going to feel pretty good.” He is making it look easy. That bounce in his step turned into a swagger as he walked to the 18th tee, ripped another drive and walked up to the 18th

T H I R D R O U N D AT A G L A N C E LEADING: Rory McIlroy maintained his lead with a 70 and was at 12-under 204 heading to the final round. PURSUING: Angel Cabrera, Charl Schwarzel, K.J. Choi and Jason Day were four shots behind at 208. Adam Scott and Luke Donald were another shot back.

SHOT OF THE DAY: McIlroy sank a 33-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to give himself a comfortable lead heading to Sunday. KEY STAT: Woods made just one birdie on the four par-5 holes. Friday he birdied all four. TELEVISION: 2-7 p.m., CBS.

mind. “I love baseball, but at that moment in time, I really hated baseball,” Dave Bartuska Sr. said with a crackinhisvoiceasiftheincident just happened yesterday. The younger Bartuska was flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital within minutes Dave Bartuska Sr. and had surgery to repair About Dave his fractured eye socket, Jr.’s injury nose and jaw, which needed 12 screws to repair. He didn’t let that injury stand in his way of playing the game again and neither did his father, who never mentioned anything about quitting the sport.

If Division II college baseball gave out a comeback player award, Dave Bartuska would have claimed that accolade in 2010. The 2007 Pittston Area graduate was out of the sport for a few months after a freak accident in the fall of 2009. With Bartuska pitching for Lackawanna College during the school’s fall league, a batter slammed a line drive off the aluminum bat and struck Bartuska square in the right side of his face. He lay on the mound motionless, and just one thing was going through his father’s See BARTUSKA, Page 4C

HE WAITED his whole life for this kind of moment, and suddenly, it was upon him like a rocket. Then Greg Golson relied on his rocket arm to create a major sight. He entered a game for the New York Yankees last year as a reserve, and made a gem of a double play from the outfield to finish off an extra-inning victory. This was down in Tampa Bay in September, just a few minutes from where the Yankees hold spring training. Only Golson had been training for big major league moments for six seasons in the minor leagues. The Yankees sent him in as a defensive replacement – a good choice since defense has always been his forte. He gloved a fly ball in medium right field for the second out of the 10th inning. Carl Crawford of Tampa Bay tried to tag up from second base and go to third on the play, but he never made it. Because Golson unleashed a beauty of a throw for the game’s final out. “That was awesome,” Golson said. “It was the best part of my life so far.” As he opens the seventh minor league season of his life back in Triple-A with Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre, Golson sometimes replays that moment in his mind, because it reminds him what he is capable of when given a chance. The Yankees finally opened a door of opportunity for Golson, giving him 24 games in his first extended major league playing experience. And Golson wasn’t about to drop the ball. Everyone knew he could catch it, because Golson has been chasing down every ball he should and some he probably shouldn’t, ever since the Phillies made him a first-round draft choice in 2004. But it’s the way Golson handled himself at the plate that boosted his value to a major league level. Back to work He batted .261 with a couple of doubles over three callups to New York last year, nearly matching his .263 lifetime minor league average – which is exactly what he batted for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2010. “The thing about New York,” Golson was saying, after the SWB Yankees were rained out at Lehigh Valley on Friday, “is that you’re at Yankee Stadium. I think every baseball player understands that’s a pressure situation.” His situation hasn’t changed all that much, even after a couple of major league moments to build on from last year. Golson goes back to work at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, trying to play his way back to New York again. “As long as I take care of my business here,” Golson said, “everything else is going to take care of itself.” He sure took care of first things first. Golson came out swinging in the Triple-A opener Thursday, picking up the first multi-hit game of the season for the SWB Yankees. Along the way, Golson had a double, a run scored and extended his International League hitting streak to 10 games, going back to last season. “I think one of the biggest things about baseball is confidence,” Golson said. “To go up to New York, get a couple starts, get some hits really helped me.”

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Scott Hartnell and Andrej Meszaros each scored two goals, and the Philadelphia Flyers clinched the Atlantic Division title and the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 7-4 win over the New York Islanders on Saturday night. The Flyers blew leads of 2-0 and 3-2 before Hartnell put them ahead for good late in the third period. The Flyers open defense of their conference championship next week against the No. 7 seed — likely the Buffalo Sabres. Even with 47 wins, the Flyers are stumbling into the playoffs. They failed to hold leads against one of the worst teams in the league and yanked postseason starting goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, but snapped a fivegame losing streak (0-3-2) and ended a six-game skid at home (0-2-4). Rangers 5, Devils 2 NEW YORK — Captain Chris Drury scored his first goal of the season in a surprise return to the lineup and Ryan McDonagh netted the first of his NHL career during a three-goal second period as the New York Rangers rallied for victory over the New Jersey Devils and then earned a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Rangers earned the win in their regular-season finale in front of an excited and nervous crowd at Madison Square Garden. New York then had to wait several hours to see if it would claim the No. 8 seed. The Rangers did when Carolina lost at home to the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-2 on Saturday night. Once their own game was in hand, the Rangers heard their fans chanting “Let’s Go Lightning.” The message worked. New York edged out Carolina by two points and will face the top-seeded Washington Capitals in the first round of the postseason. The Hurricanes would have gotten into the playoffs based on a tiebreaker had they beaten the Lightning. Lightning 6, Hurricanes 2 RALEIGH, N.C. — Vincent Lecavalier had a goal and an assist, and the quick-starting Tampa Bay Lightning beat

Bruins 3, Senators 1 BOSTON — Nathan Horton scored a tiebreaking goal early in the second period, Tim Thomas stopped 31 shots and the Boston Bruins won their regular season home finale 3-1 over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. It was the Bruins’ seventh win in 10 games and left them in contention for the Eastern Conference’s second seed with Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Boston must win its regularseason finale Sunday in New Jersey to have a chance. The Senators missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons.

Carolina to eliminate the Hurricanes from playoff contention. Lecavalier, Dominic Moore and Steven Stamkos scored during a 6-minute, 32-second flurry in the first period. The Lightning led 4-0 midway through the second and held on to send the New York Rangers into the Eastern Conference playoffs as the No. 8 seed. Martin St. Louis had two assists before he and Simon Gagne scored empty-netters in the final 21⁄2 minutes. Mike Smith made 42 saves for the Lightning, who matched a club

record with their 46th victory and closed the regular season with wins in seven of eight. Canadiens 4, Maple Leafs 1 TORONTO — Brian Gionta scored two goals and Carey Price made 27 saves to help the Montreal Canadiens wrap up the regular season with a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. Montreal finished with the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, setting up a first-round matchup with the rival Boston Bruins. Ryan White and Tomas

Panthers 1, Capitals 0 SUNRISE, Fla. — Bill Thomas scored with 6:05 remaining and Tomas Vokoun made 28 saves to help the Florida Panthers close the season by snapping a 10-game losing streak with a 1-0 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night. Washington, which lost for only the third time in 20 games (16-3-1), had clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference on Friday when Philadelphia lost to Buffalo. Despite Washington having nothing at stake, Alexander Ovechkin and the other Capitals stars played in the team’s season finale. The one exception was defenseman Mike Green, who sat out his 20th consecutive game since sustaining a head injury on Feb. 25. Green had been expected to make his return to action on Saturday. Michal Neuvirth made 22 saves for the Capitals. Sabres 5, Blue Jackets 4 COLUMBUS, Ohio — Paul Gaustad scored the winner late on a power play, and four other Buffalo players scored as the Sabres held on to beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 on Saturday night in the season finale for both teams. With the game tied 3-3, Drew Stafford and Gaustad, who also had an assist, scored on a fiveminute major to former Buffalo captain Craig Rivet for high sticking Tyler Ennis.

World champ tears ACL; needs surgery The Associated Press

BERLIN — Reigning world gymnastics champion Aliya Mustafina will have surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ACL. The Russian team initially thought Mustafina had injured her meniscus when she landed awkwardly on a vault during the all-around competition at the European championships on Friday. But tests showed she tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee, according to her official

website. Mustafina grimaced when she landed her vault, staying upright long enough to salute the judges before crumpling to the ground and grabbing her knee. She had to be carried off the mat and was taken out of the arena in a wheelchair. It is not known how long Mustafina be out. The world championships, which are also the main qualifier for the 2012 London Olympics, are in October.

Scott, Cabrera, Watson post low round By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Adam Scott will take a 67 any day at Augusta National. Doing it on moving day at the Masters made it that much better. The Australian made up some serious ground on the Masters leaderboard Saturday after matching Angel Cabrera and Bubba Watson for low round of the day. Tied for sixth at 7-under, Scott is five shots behind leader Rory McIlroy. “I felt like I played OK the first two days, just a little bit off,” Scott said. “But today, everything kind of fell into place. It was nice to get a bit of momentum going and keep it going for most of the round.” Cabrera, Watson, Charl Schwartzel and Bo Van Pelt also made big moves. Cabrera, the 2009 Masters champion, and Schwartzel are tied for second at 8-under with K.J. Choi and Jason Day, while Van Pelt is in eighth place behind Scott and Luke Donald.

The 51-year-old, who won at Augusta National in 1992, is in contention for a second straight year, going into the final round tied for ninth at 5-under. “A couple times I had to sit back and remind myself we’re playing the Masters on Saturday and I’m getting to play with Freddie, someone who I’ve looked up to since I was a little kid,” Fowler said. “It was obviously not the round I wanted, but I was just out there a couple times reminding myself to try to calm me down a little bit and relax.” ERNIE AND THE MARKER: Ernie Els was the first to tee off Saturday, having made the cut on the number. It’s an unusual spot for the three-time major champion, so he was surprised to find that he would have company. Els played with a non-competing marker, Augusta National member Jeff Knox. The Big Easy could have played by himself, but Knox was already waiting when Els got to the first tee. “We went and played,” Els said. “I didn’t ask any questions.”

green to a loud ovation that could be a preview to a coronation. Following him around was U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who missed the cut but didn’t want to miss out on his countryman having a chance to give Europe another major. “He just texted me and told me he loves me,” McIlroy said. “I don’t know if that’s him or the beer talking. No, it’s great to see him out there and I appreciate his support. He’s going to know how I’m feeling. Here’s a major champion and he got it done last year at Pebble. Hopefully, I can emulate that feeling and get a major myself.” McIlroy was at 12-under 204 and will play in the final group Sunday with Angel Cabrera, who won the Masters two years ago and is the only major champion within six shots of McIlroy. Cabrera has fallen to No. 97 in the world, with only two top 10s in the last year. He didn’t think he had much of a chance when he arrived at Augusta. But he’s starting to believe. “Now that I see that I’m playing well, I sure think I can do it,” Cabrera said. The group at 8-under 208 also includes Charl Schwartzel (68), K.J. Choi (71) and Jason Day, the 23-year-old Australian who took the lead on the front nine with a long birdie on No. 5, but paid for his aggressive putting and had to settle for a 72. The challenge from Woods, who started the third round only three shots behind, never materialized. He squandered birdie chances with a fairway metal that went too long on the par-5 eighth, a 5foot birdie putt that never had a chance on No. 9, a shocking miss for par from 2 feet on No. 11 and a three-putt par on the 15th after an amazing hook around the trees that barely cleared the water. Woods shot 74, ending his streak of 16 rounds at par or better at a major he won four times.

pitch brought home Chris Dickerson from third. Gibson is the Minnesota Twins’ No. 1 prospect, according to Baseball America. The Red Wings answered in the bottom half, as Matt Brown lined a double to left with two outs off Hector Noesi. Trevor Plouffe scored from second, but Brian Dinkelman was thrown out at home on a 7-6-2 throw. Parraz gave theYankees a 2-1 lead in the second, belting a solo shot over the wall in left-center. But once again, Rochester tied it in the bottom half when speedy Ben Revere beat out a routine grounder to shortstop Ramiro Pena that scored Jeff Bailey from

Rory McIlroy tees off on the 18th hole during the third round of the Masters Saturday in Augusta, Ga.

The final hole summed up his day, perhaps the tournament, and the state of golf as it prepares for the next generation. Woods was settling over his shot in the middle of the 18th fairway when McIlroy holed his big putt on the 17th. For so many years, it was Woods who delivered big birdies that made everyone else take notice. This time, it was McIlroy who forced Woods to back off. He then hit his approach over the green and missed a 6-foot par putt, leaving him seven shots behind. “I just made nothing,” Woods said. “I hit the ball well all day. That wasn’t the problem. Take away the two three-putts there, a couple of unforced errors and it should have been a pretty good round.” McIlroy didn’t have to make any such excuses. He has made only three bogeys over three rounds, and no threeputts, always a key at the Masters. He and Day were tied for the lead at 9 under as they made their way through Amen Corner, and McIlroy seized control on the 13th. A bold tee shot down the left side, where Rae’s Creek winds its

way along the azaleas, gave McIlroy a clear shot on the green and he two-putted for a birdie. Day attacked the flag in the back left corner and went long, into the second cut. His delicate chip rolled back toward him, he putted up the slope about 6 feet below the hole and missed the putt to make bogey. Day fell further behind as McIlroy played well beyond his 21 years. The Australian was saved on the par-5 15th when his shot came up short, but stayed dry because the grass is not shaved as low as it normally is. He was able to get up-and-down for birdie to match another two-putt birdie by McIlroy. On the 16th, both were on the bottom shelf. Day gunned his putt about 6 feet past the hole and missed it coming back. McIlroy rolled his with better pace to pick up an easy par, and another stroke. Then came the 17th, where McIlroy hooked his approach around the pines to the back of the green, then holed the slick putt that unleashed his emotions and set off the loudest roar of the day. “It was a bonus,” he said. “After

I hit the tee shot, I would have just loved to walk away from that green with a 4 and moved on to the 18th tee. It was tracking the whole way and just dropped in the middle. It was great, because I had been waiting on a putt to drop all day, and for it to drop there, it was great timing.” It was the third straight day for McIlroy and Day to play in the same group. Saturday was different, though, and as both tried to get into position for a green jacket, there was a lot less chatter. “I still went out there and had fun,” Day said. “Obviously, I made a few disappointing choices. But I’m going to go out there tomorrow and I’ve got a game plan that I want to stick to. And if I can do that and hole some putts, hopefully I can try and chase them down.” Missing from the pack are the Americans. Bo Van Pelt was the low American after a 68 put him in eighth place, six shots behind. Woods was in the group seven shots behind along with 51-yearold Fred Couples and Bubba Watson. If an international player wins, it will be the first time ever that Americans did not own any of the four majors or the Ryder Cup.

third with two outs. In the top of the third, Brandon Laird laced a two-out single off Gibson to score Chris Dickerson with the Yankees’ third run. But in the bottom half, Jeff Bailey tied it for the third time with a one-out single off Noesi. The Yankees had a chance to break it open in the fifth, when Dickerson and Jesus Montero opened with singles. But Yorman Bazardo struck out Vazquez and then induced Justin Maxwell to hit into an inning-ending 5-4-3 double play. Solo shots by Greg Golson and Ramiro Pena put the Yankees ahead 5-3 in the top of the seventh. But for the fourth time, the Red Wings rallied to tie it in the bottom half on a two-run shot by Plouffe off Eric Wordekemper. The power surge continued in the top of the seventh when Je-

sus Montero ripped a solo homer off left-hander Chuck James to put Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in front 6-5. But then came Plouffe’s homer in the ninth. And, finally, Bailey’s shot off the railing in left-center in the 12th. It came on an 0-2 pitch. “I saw nasty slider, nasty slider – and then fastball up,” the first baseman said. “That was it.” The series continues today at 1:05. Right-hander Adam Warren pitches for the Yankees against Red Wings left-hander Scott Diamond.

Giant Center. That was a little payback for Hershey’s 2-1 victory in WilkesBarre/Scranton’s building the previous night. "We knew we had to respond after (Friday) night," Curry said. "They came into our building and out-played us. We want to go into the playoffs proving to everyone out there, and to ourselves, that’s not how we play." Saturday night was more like the Penguins. David Marshall tallied the lone goal of the first period by taking a pass from Brian Strait and wrapping it around Hershey goalie Holtby and into the net with 13.3 seconds to play in the opening period. "(Friday) they took it to us a little bit," Marshall said. "But guys responded and put it on their shoulders today." Marshall’s tally opened the floodgates against Holtby, who shut down Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in Hershey’s 2-1 victory Friday and came in with a goalsagainst average of 2.22. The Penguins nearly doubled that in less than 28 minutes. Brett Sterling sizzled home a shot with 6:30 gone in the second period for a 2-0 Pens lead, and that grew to 3-0 just 30 seconds later when Nick Petersen whistled home a power play shot. Then Bryan Lerg and Marshall played pitch and catch with the puck until Lerg lifted a laser over Holty for a 4-0 Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton lead with just under eight minutes remaining in the second quarter. But those weren’t the only big shots of the night. The game began with a flurry of fists, instigated by Hershey winger Ashton Rome. After throwing a couple of knees at the Penguins in the game’s first five minutes, Rome started throwing punches, pummeling the unsuspecting Zach Sill to the ice. With Sill trying to fight back from his back, Rome continued chopping away long after Sill had hit the ice - a rarity in hockey.

BARTUSKA Continued from Page 1C

In fact, getting hurt may have given him more motivation. When no other program wanted to take a chance on Bartuska, Dominican College offered him a scholarship for the 2010 season. The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) is a wooden bat league, which was a plus for the 21-year-old; he wouldn’t have to worry about aluminum bats. His debut with the Chargers was excellent as he piled up a 7-2 record with a 2.40 ERA and 91 strikeouts in just 75 innings pitched in 2010, leading the Chargers to the conference championship. He was so impressive that Major League Baseball scouts started getting more and more interested. To date, Bartuska has filled out paper work for eight different MLB teams and could get drafted as high as the 10th round in June’s Amateur Draft. His strong 2010 campaign also led him to being rated as one of the top collegiate pitchers in the country in the offseason. He picked up many accolades including a Small School Preseason All-American nod by Baseball America and a first-team selection to the All-CACC Team. He also landed on the Tino Martinez Award watch list, which is an award given to the most outstanding player in Division II college baseball. He was on the initial list released in February. The list updates later this month with the semifinalists slated to be announced in May and the finalists and winner announced after the DII Baseball Championships are held May 28 to June 4 in Cary, N.C. “I’m honored to have those,”

That prompted another round moments later, when Penguins enforcer Jesse Boulerice first caught his balance after nearly tumbling to the ice, then dropped Hershey’s big man Patrick Wellar with a hard left hook. There was more of the same in the second period, when Penguin Ryan Schnell and Hershey’s Phil Oreskovic squared off for Saturday night fights. And WilkesBarre/Scranton’s Joe Vitale was smack in the middle of the skirmish inside Hershey’s cage. "Both teams wanted to make a statement," Marshall said. "Neither team wanted to back down. You’ve got Boulie (Boulerice), Schnell fighting, you’re playing hard." But for the most part, fans at Hershey’s sold-out Giant Center were mainly hooked on the action. The bulk of it was defensive entertainment by both teams. But Curry proved the standout until the final two minutes. Just after Hershey’s 5-on-3 expired, the Bears still holding a man advantage for more than 40 seconds, Curry stepped up to stymie the charging Bears. He stopped three consecutive wicked shots in one sequence, including two dead-on attempts that boomed off his blockers. "Our penalty kill was unbelievable that first period," Marshall said. "I think we killed about 10 minutes off, including a 5-on-3." There was more of the same for Curry through the second period and most of the third, until Hershey scored twice 31 seconds apart.

Bartuska said. “A lot of people give me attention from seeing what I did last year. I just kept my head in the game and stayed motivated.” After a slow start to the 2011 season for Dominican, the 6-foot, 175-pounder has got his groove back. He started the campaign with a 0-2 record and an ERA nearing double digits and attributed the cold start to the cold weather. He has bounced back in a big way and earned CACC Pitcher of the Week honors last week. Entering the weekend, he has won three straight decisions to move his record to 3-2 and hasn’t given up an earned run in 182⁄3 frames to lower his earned run average to 3.08. He’s averaging over a strikeout per inning with 28 in 261⁄3 innings so far this season and hasn’t allowed a home run. In his last start on Monday, he picked up the victory by going seven innings, fanning nine and giving up only three walks, five hits and an unearned run. His goals for the season are to improve on last year’s numbers by getting over 100 strikeouts, lower his ERA below 2.00 and increase the velocity on his fastball from 92 to 94 mph. Even though he has proven that he has recovered from the injury, he still has those random flashback moments. Some of that has to do with bats breaking. Last year, he broke 13 opponents’ bats and four of the barrels landed around the pitcher’s mound. “It was a big step coming here because it’s wooden bat and although it’s different from a metal bat, the bats break,” he said. “It’s a scary site seeing that coming back at you.” The scariest scene recently has been for hitters trying to figure out Bartuska’s pitches to get solid hits.

He is going to be all right trying to fight his way to more major league playing time.

league, the road can be a very dangerous place in the postseason. Just ask Chris Collins. As a member of the 2007-08 Providence Bruins, the postseason was highly anticipated for the team that had the best record in the AHL with a 55-183-4 mark. The Bruins swept Manchester in the first round and won their first two games in the next round against Portland. Both of those games were at home, and when the Bruins traveled to Portland for the next three games of the series, things took a drastic turn for the worse. “They beat us three straight. Then they eliminated us at home in Game 6. It was a complete shock to us,” Collins said. “We learned that the road, especially Portland, is a tough place to play.” So what do the Penguins need to do to avoid a similar fate?

“Just because we have home ice advantage, we can’t take anything for granted,” Collins said. “You can’t get too comfortable. Playoff hockey is a completely different world.” But that doesn’t mean the Penguins aren’t going to utilize their home ice advantage as often as they can. From the fans to the comforts of spending more time in a familiar city, home ice is definitely a perk. And it also has its advantages on the ice as well. The home team gets to make the last line change during a game, allowing the home coach to get the matchups he wants on the ice. The center for the home team has to put his stick down last on faceoffs, affording another advantage that can go a long way in game management. Considering that Hynes places a lot of emphasis on strategy and details, the on-ice benefits of home ice should suit him well in the playoffs.

“Things like that do help,” Hynes said. “Line matchups and game management things are important. The biggest thing to me is game management.” Craig said when it comes to home ice advantage and managing the game, the Penguins have been preparing for it over the last two months. “We’ve been working on matchups and getting guys used to doing those types of things that go on in the playoffs,” Craig said. “You want to make sure you take advantage of home ice in all situations.” But, as if taking a cue from Collins’ experience with Providence, Craig stressed that the Penguins have to look at their home ice advantage in the short term. “We don’t want to look too far ahead,” he said. “We have home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs, and then we’ll go from there.”

Player: Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins forward Bryan Lerg Remember Bryan Lerg’s overtime game-winning goal against Hershey on March 27? The one where he made a beautiful toe-drag move around Hershey’s Keith Aucoin and roofed the puck into the net? It was the type of goal that will be replayed on Penguins highlight reels for seasons to come, and it also entrenched Lerg as one of the team’s most talented stickhandlers. Aside from skating, stickhandling is the most important skill in hockey. Lerg does it extremely well. Read on to learn his secrets and how you can make a wicked toe-drag move of your own. Hands and body: “When you have the puck, you’re carrying it ahead of you most of the time. A lot of it has to do with the stick position of your opponent. If his stick is out, sometimes you have to hold the puck out to the side. One of the most important things is you have to use your body. Whether you’re Keven Veilleux’s size or a guy who is my size, you have to put yourself in the best position to check the puck. Being a smaller guy I sometimes have to put the puck more in my feet, use my butt and legs and sneak around. Somebody like Kev can use his reach. Don’t look down: “Once that hitting comes for young kids, if you’re looking down at your stick all game you’re going to get drilled. You learn quick. I remember at hockey schools we’d wear these little blinders and we wouldn’t be able to look at the puck. That’s how you develop a feel for it. Just keep your head up and feel for the puck. I’m always working on it” Neutral zone: “My preference is to stickhandle through the neutral zone. Move it around a bit because you never know if you’ll have to chip it or make a move. I keep stickhandling coming through the neutral zone to be ready for the D to make a move on me. Your options are open and you’re not just pushing the puck up.” The right stick: “The general rule is when you’re on your skates your stick should go up to your chin. I play with a longer stick, it goes up to my nose. Whatever you’re comfortable with. The shorter your stick, it’s easier to handle the puck. But if you can play with a longer stick and still handle the puck, go for it. It can make your shot harder.” Practice: “I work on it every day before and after practice. Go between pucks and cones, tight turns, put it in my feet, kicking it out to myself. Stuff like that. Even try little moves that you may not try in a game, try them in practice because that makes your hand-eye and your feel for the puck better.” And the toe-drag move: “It’s not something you just happen to do. You have to work at it. I extend my reach out to the left, when you see the defenseman or goalie coming toward you and you think you might have him, I lift the heel of my blade off the ice and pull the toe back in toward my body and bring the puck with me. Hopefully they bite on it and you get around them. It’s not always the best play, but it looks good when you do it. You have to do it at the right times.”

Kenseth ends 76-race drought in Texas Matt Kenseth led 169 out of 334 laps for his first victory since February 2009. By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

FORT WORTH, Texas — Matt Kenseth had a dominating run at Texas, breaking a 76-race NASCAR Sprint Cup winless streak Saturday night. Kenseth led 169 of 334 laps at the 11⁄2-mile, high-banked track for his 19th career victory, his first since California in February 2009. Since his other win at Texas in 2002, Kenseth had four runner-up finishes, including last fall behind Denny Hamlin, and six

other top-10 finishes at the track. This time, the No. 17 Roush Fenway Ford was only trailing late behind Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch when both of those drivers were out of sequence on stops and trying to stretch fuel in hopes of catching a caution. Lucky for Kenseth, there were no yellow flags at the wrong time. Kenseth went back ahead to stay with 13 laps to go when Busch had to make his final stop and give up a 8.2-second lead. Kenseth finished 8.315 seconds ahead of Clint Bowyer. “Over two years, I didn’t know if I’d get a chance to get here again,” Kenseth said in Victory Lane. It was a weekend sweep at Tex-

as Motor Speedway for car owner Jack Roush after Carl Edwards won the Nationwide race Friday night. Roush has 16 NASCAR wins in Texas — eight in Cup, seven in Nationwide and one in Trucks. All four of Roush’s drivers finished in the top seven. Edwards finished third, 17 seconds back, with Greg Biffle fourth and polesitter David Ragan seventh. Edwards took over the season points lead by nine over Kyle Busch, who finished 16th. Stewart had gone 58 laps since his last stop with 58 laps to go, and had nearly a 17-second lead over Kenseth and more than 19 seconds over Bowyer when he made his stop.

Any chance for a victory ended when Stewart got penalized for speeding on pit road. He finished 12th, the last driver on the lead lap even though he coasted across the finish line after running out of fuel. Kurt Busch finished 10th. While Kenseth had led only five laps in the first six races this season, he got to Texas coming off three consecutive finishes in the top six and had been in the top 12 for every race since an accident in the season-opening Daytona 500 led to a 34th-place finish. Kenseth became the career laps leader at Texas, pushing his total to 669 laps in 18 starts.

The first night race of the season was also the first ever run under the lights at Texas, which hosted its 21st Sprint Cup race since the track opened in 1997. Denny Hamlin finished 15th and Kevin Harvick 20th, both being denied trifectas. Harvick had won the last two Cup races this season at Martinsville and California. Hamlin swept both races at Texas last season and was trying to become the first driver to win three consecutive Cup races at the track. Both had problems early in the race, Harvick getting a penalty in the pits on the first stop and Hamlin with some power problems in his car.

Toby’s Corner deals Derby favorite Uncle Mo first defeat A surge in the final stretch leads to upset at Wood Memorial. By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Uncle Mo is unbeaten no longer. Toby’s Corner surged past Uncle Mo and Arthur’s Tale in the stretch to post a shocking upset in the $1 million Wood Memorial at Aqueduct Racetrack on Saturday. Uncle Mo came into the Grade 1 Wood as the early favorite for the Kentucky Derby in four weeks, but that will all change after one of the biggest upsets in the 87-year history of the Wood. Sent off as the overwhelming 110 favorite against what was supposed to be a weak field, Uncle Mo controlled the race from the start. But when the10 3-year-olds turned for home, Uncle Mo could not come up with his usual strong finish despite jockey John Velazquez’s best efforts. First Arthur’s Tale went past him, then Toby’s Corner went past both of them to win by a neck. Un-

cle Mo, ridden by John Velazquez, was another length back in third. “I can’t say I’m shocked, but I’m disappointed,” said Todd Pletcher, Uncle Mo’s trainer. It was the first defeat for Uncle Mo after the son of Indian Charlie had rolled over the opposition in winning four races by a combined 27 lengths, including the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs to cap his 2-year-old championship season. Not one rival was given much of a chance to topple mighty Uncle Mo in the Wood, but on a bright, sunny day, it was Toby’s Corner who came through. Toby’s Corner, the second betting choice at 8-1, came into the race off a third-place finish in the Gotham Stakes last month at Aqueduct. But the chestnut colt is a son of Bellamy Road, who won the 2005 Wood by a record 17 lengths. Secretariat’s loss to stablemate Angle Light in 1973 is considered the biggest upset in Wood history, but this one has to be pretty close after all the prerace buildup centering on Uncle Mo, owned by Mike Repole.

Pletcher, who won his first Derby last year with Super Saver, is likely to bring Uncle to Churchill Downs if he comes out of the Wood in good physical shape. “It goes without saying that if he wins by 10 today he goes in there (the Derby) with quite a bit differ-

ent morning line than he is now,” Pletcher said. “It doesn’t mean we’re not going to go, it doesn’t mean we are going to go. “We’ll see how he comes out of it and make sure he’s physically OK, that’s a priority.” Norman Asbjornson was fourth,

followed by Isn’t He Perfect, Starship Caesar, Son of Posse, Preachintothedevil and Duca. Toby’s Corner returned $19.40, $7 and $2.50. Arthur’s Tale paid $11 and $3.30, and Uncle Mo returned $2.10 to show. The winning time was 1:49.93.

Midnight Interlude surprises with win by a head at Santa Anita The third option for trainer Bob Baffert won by running 1 1-8 miles in 1:48.66. By BETH HARRIS AP Racing Writer

ARCADIA, Calif. — Bob Baffert suddenly has a third option for the Kentucky Derby. Midnight Interlude scored a surprising victory in the Santa Anita Derby on Saturday, giving the Hall of Fame trainer a record sixth win in the $1 million race. The colt rallied in the stretch

under Victor Espinoza to beat Comma to the Top by a head in the West’s biggest prep for the May 7 Kentucky Derby. Midnight Interlude ran 1 1-8 miles in 1:48.66. Sent off at 13-1 odds by the crowd of 31,523, Midnight Interlude paid $29.80, $12 and $6. It was Baffert’s third win on the day’s card. Midnight Interlude was the least accomplished of Baffert’s Kentucky Derby possibilities, having lost his first two races before winning for the first time on March 20.

The Factor has garnered most of the attention for the three-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer, and he’s set to run next weekend in the Arkansas Derby. Jaycito was supposed to run Saturday, which would have given Baffert two starters, but was scratched a day earlier because of a foot injury. If Jaycito recovers, Baffert plans to run him in the April 23 Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland for his final Derby prep. Comma to the Top, who led most of the way, returned $9.20 and $5.80, while Mr. Commons

was another 21⁄4 lengths back in third and paid $3.60 to show. Silver Medallion, the 5-2 favorite, was fourth, followed by Anthony’s Cross, Indian Winter, Bench Points, Quail Hill and Offlee Wild Boys. The victory represented a dramatic turnaround for Baffert and Espinoza from a year ago. That’s when Baffert had the favorite, Lookin At Lucky, ridden by Garrett Gomez, who had a troubled trip and finished third. Espinoza was on a horse called Who’s Up. Lookin At Lucky got squeezed down along the rail,

forcing Gomez to stand up in the saddle. Gomez accused Espinoza of bouncing him off the rail, and went after Espinoza after the race, landing punches before the two were separated. Baffert was furious at Gomez for putting his horse into that spot. He later asked Espinoza, “Are you trying to kill my jockey?” Baffert’s wife, Jill, lit into Espinoza, asking why he tried to unseat Gomez. Espinoza repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but the damage to his long relationship with Baffert was done.

WASHINGTON — Andray Blatche scored 23 points, John Wall had 19, and the Washington Wizards dealt the playoff-bound Atlanta Hawks their fourth straight loss, 115-83 on Saturday night. The reeling Hawks, who are set to play Orlando in the playoffs, are heading into the postseason in less than ideal shape. The Wizards broke a 12game losing streak against Atlanta, have won four of six and are probably playing their best this season. They have just 10 healthy players — including five rookies and three who played in the NBA D-League this season. Al Horford led the Hawks with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Joe Johnson had 16 as coach Larry Drew pulled his starters early in the fourth quarter. Washington got off to a fast start, taking a 16-6 lead while hitting seven of their first nine shots. Thanks to a spurt from recent D-League refugees Othyus Jeffers and Larry Owens, they increased their lead to 44-25 four minutes into the second quarter. Only 13 straight Atlanta points by Jamal Crawford kept them somewhat close, but that was all he scored. Washington led 61-46 at halftime — with twice as many rebounds as the Hawks — 26-13. A 9-0 run made it 76-53 midway through the third quarter, and the Wizards outscored Atlanta 27-11 in the fourth. Washington had seven players who scored in double figures. Jianlian Yi had 15, Jeffers had 13 points and 11 rebounds, JaVale McGee 12, Owens and Maurice Evans 10 each. The last time Atlanta played here on Feb. 5, they reached a season-high 15 games over .500 after their win. Since then, they’re just 11-18, and soon after traded Evans, Jordan Crawford and Mike Bibby to the Wizards for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. Bibby quickly negotiated a buyout from Washington, and Crawford, who was buried on Atlanta’s bench, has flourished with the injuryravaged Wizards. In his first game against his former team, Crawford picked up three fouls in the first half, and hit just three of nine from the field, but had eight assists. Bucks 108, Cavaliers 101 MILWAUKEE — Drew Gooden had his first career triple-double and John Salmons scored 32 points as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. Gooden had 15 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists for the Bucks, hitting doubledigits in all three stat categories in the middle of the third quarter. Baron Davis scored 19 points and Ramon Sessions added 15 for the Cavaliers in a matchup between two teams that have been eliminated from playoff contention. Spurs 111, Jazz 102 SAN ANTONIO — Richard Jefferson scored 20 points and the San Antonio Spurs began resting up with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference secured, beating the Utah Jazz. The Spurs (61-19) have two games left and are 11⁄2 games ahead of Chicago for the NBA’s best record. Protecting that lead will likely fall to the bench as San Antonio focuses on keeping fresh for the playoffs. DeJuan Blair had 12 points starting in place of Antonio McDyess, who got the night off. Coach Gregg Popovich said he won’t be overplaying anybody through the next week.

Ruiz slams door on Braves ATLANTA — Carlos Ruiz hit a pinch-hit grand slam and drove in five runs, and Roy Oswalt earned his first victory over Atlanta as the Phillies rolled to a 10-2 win over the Braves on Saturday. With Brian Schneider starting behind the plate, Ruiz sat out the first six innings. He still set his career high for RBIs with his slam in the seventh and run-scoring double in the eighth. Oswalt (2-0) gave up five hits and two runs, one earned, in six innings. The Braves were the only National League team Oswalt had not beaten. Schneider gave the Phillies a 3-2 lead with his two-run homer off Brandon Beachy (0-1) in the fourth. The Phillies had 15 hits, including eight for extra bases. Mets 8, Nationals 4

NEW YORK — Carlos Beltran hit two early home runs but it was his routine flyball in the sixth inning muffed by left fielder Jerry Hairston Jr. that sparked a three-run rally, and the New York Mets got several

rare clutch hits in beating the Washington Nationals 8-4 Saturday night. Ike Davis hit a two-run triple in the sixth to give New York a 5-4 lead after Hairston’s brother, Scott, struck out. Pinch-hitter Daniel Murphy had an RBI single through a drawn-in infield to give the Mets two big hits after they went 1 for 17 with runners in scoring position the previous two games. Brewers 6, Cubs 0

MILWAUKEE — Prince Fielder drove in four runs with a career-high three doubles, Chris Narveson pitched seven shutout innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-0 on Saturday night. Narveson (1-0) struck out nine and ran his scoreless streak to 13 innings over his first two starts after working out of trouble multiple times. Rockies 6, Pirates 4

PITTSBURGH — Ty Wigginton hit a tiebreaking, three-run double in the eighth inning to give Colorado a 6-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sat-

DETROIT — Bruce Chen allowed three hits over six impressive innings, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 3-1 on Saturday. Wilson Betemit and Alcides Escobar drove in runs in the second inning for Kansas City, and Jeff Francoeur added a sacrifice fly in the ninth. White Sox 4, Rays 2

CHICAGO — A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run double and Phil Humber pitched a career-high six innings to lead the Chicago White Sox over the sputtering Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 on Saturday in a game that got a little testy at the end.

Felipe Lopez took exception to an inside pitch from Chris Sale in the ninth inning, then flipped his bat in the lanky left-hander’s direction after hitting a solo home run. When Lopez crossed home plate, he and Pierzynksi went nose-tonose and jawed at each other for a couple of seconds, but there was no pushing or shoving.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

BOSTON — Russell Martin hit two of New York’s four homers and the Yankees rebounded for a 9-4 win over Boston on Saturday, one day after becoming the only team to lose to the Red Sox this season. Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano also went deep for the Yankees, who already have 18 homers through eight games. The Red Sox have allowed 19 in their eight games. David Robertson (1-0) pitched 1 2-3 perfect innings after starter Ivan Nova was lifted with one out in the fifth with the Yankees leading 7-4. Clay Buchholz (0-2) allowed five runs on eight hits in 3 2-3 innings as Boston’s starters continued to struggle. The Red Sox cut their deficit to 5-4 with three runs in the fourth before Granderson hit a two-run homer in the fifth. Cano and Martin added solo shots in the sixth and seventh.

two-hitter into the eighth inning, and Baltimore got homers from Nick Markakis and Mark Reynolds in a 5-0 victory that ended the Rangers’ run as the last unbeaten team in the majors. After going quietly in the opener, Texas unloaded on Orioles starter Jake Arrieta (1-1) in the nightcap. Arrieta gave up eight runs and six hits, including homers to Beltre and Mike Napoli, in 3 1-3 innings. Athletics 1, Twins 0

MINNEAPOLIS — Gio Gonzalez pitched six sharp innings and the Athletics’ offense was just a little less futile than Minnesota’s in Oakland’s 1-0 victory over the Twins on Saturday night.

Water excitement

By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

The numbers are staggering. •3.9 million •850,000 •8,800 •15,000 The first two numbers represent the total number of trout the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will stock this season and the amount of licensed anglers that will head out to catch them. The last two numbers are the totals of fathead minnows and mealworms that shop owner Giles Evans will sell to anglers trying to catch those trout. The first day of trout season already began on April 2 in the southeastern part of the state. But in the northeast and everywhere else it kicks off on April 16, and that’s when the aforementioned numbers will become a reality as anglers line the banks of area streams and lakes stocked with trout. According to PFBC executive director John Arway, opening day of trout season is about more than numbers. It’s about families and tradition.

All are ready for start of trout season

One-on-one with PFBC Commissioner

Addressing trout concerns By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

As a commissioner on the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission board, Kingston resident Norm Gavlick is well aware of how important trout season is to the agency. The Pennsylvania Game Commission has the first day of deer season, and the PFBC has an equivalent with the trout season opener, he said. In order to keep the opening day of trout a popular tradition in the state, the PFBC is constantly looking at ways to make improvements for anglers and the resource. Changes are approved by Gavlick and the other nine commissioners

on the board, and angler input plays a large role in their decision-making process. That’s why Gavlick won’t fish on opening day, but he will visit many of the stocked streams and lakes in the area. “I’ll stop by as many areas as I can to talk with anglers, get some feedback and see how things are going,” Gavlick said. Here are Gavlick’s thought on several issues impacting trout season and a few possible changes that may be on the horizon: Is it possible the agency could alter the way it stocks trout so more of the fish are See GAVLICK, Page 11C

season will be spent working long hours in their shops, selling bait, lures, rods and reels. Evans, who owns Brady and Cavany Sporting Goods in Tunkhannock, will stay open until 9 p.m. on the days leading up to the opener, and then open his doors at 5:30 a.m. on April 16 for those anglers needing some last minute items while they travel to their favorite fishing spot. While the long hours can be exhausting, Evans said he enjoys the build-up leading to the first day and the anticipation felt by the anglers who come through his door. “It’s an enjoyable time because I get to see a lot of friends and good customers that have been coming in before trout season for years,” Evans said. Joe Lasecki, owner of Nimrod Haven Sporting Goods in Hanover Township, will also open earlier and stay later to accommodate customers gearing up for trout season. Like Evans, the days before the start of trout season bring many familiar faces into Lasecki’s store. “There’s guys that come in

The week before the opening day of trout season is pretty predictable for Waterways Conservation Officers: stock trout and patrol. But it is anything from mundane. The days leading up to the trout season opener are some of the busiest for WCO’s, but it’s a time of year they anticipate as much as the anglers heading out to the water on April 16. “I enjoy it,” said WCO Aaron Lupacchini, who patrols part of

I T ’ L L COST YO U The fine for fishing a stocked trout water before opening day is $50 plus costs, which brings the total to approximately $100, Lupacchini said. In addition, those caught can lose their fishing license and face a $20 fine for each trout caught.

Luzerne and Columbia counties. “I like getting out talking to the anglers and seeing them catch the fish that we’ve been releasing. I feel the same anticipation that they feel.” WCO John Cummings, who also covers parts of Luzerne and Columbia counties, will spend this Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday stocking trout See ANGLERS, Page 11C

he first day of trout season can be a pretty intimidating proposition for a child. The banks of most stocked lakes and streams are usually packed with anglers standing shoulder to shoulder waiting for the 8 a.m. start. For a child, finding a place to stand among the wall of anglers can be a daunting task. And trying to cast can be downright terrifying. Unfortunately, it may take more work just to try to fish than to actually catch a fish. But there is a solution. Give youth anglers – those 16 years old and younger, their own opening day of trout season. The Pennsylvania Game Commission has successfully implemented several youth-only seasons, giving young hunters a head start when it comes to hunting for squirrels, rabbits, pheasant, spring gobbler and antlerless deer. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission can do the same thing with trout. Sure, the agency does several things now that are child-friendly. Adults are allowed to assist children by casting and baiting hooks and they don’t need a license to do it. The agency also offers two Fish for Free days each year, which are also beneficial to children because it allows their parents to take them fishing without having to buy a license. But the biggest incentive that the agency offers children is they don’t have to buy a license or a trout stamp until they are 16. Just turn them loose with a rod and reel and let them hit the water without having to worry about coming up for the dough for a license. It’s a good move. And so is a youth trout season opener. It would be the equivalent of a statewide kids fishing derby, and as long as parents are allowed to help out by baiting hooks and casting lines, the turnout could be significant.

ADULTS NEED TO BE WILLING Of course, such an event wouldn’t be possible without adult anglers being willing to step aside for a day and letting children have the first crack at stocked trout. There are numerous in-season stockings both during the week and on Saturdays after the season opens April 16, so there is plenty of time for adult anglers to hit their favorite trout water. And adults would still have their opening day… it would just come after the children had theirs. I pitched the idea to PFBC commissioner Norm Gavlick, and he was intrigued. The board meets tomorrow and Tuesday in Harrisburg, and Gavlick said he would mention the idea to his fellow commissioners and get their thoughts. “An early trout opener for youth? It’s worth talking about,” Gavlick said. Let’s hope the PFBC board feels it’s worth pursuing. Aside from catching fish, one of the most exciting aspects for a child is the anticipation that comes with standing along a stream or lake waiting for the clock to hit 8 a.m. to start the season. It’s a build-up that is only rivaled by the first day of deer season. It’s something that the PFBC should address to make sure the first day of trout season is not only exciting for children, but enjoyable as well. Let the kids hone their casting skills without worry by giving them plenty of space along a stocked stream or lake. Let them have a trout season opener of their own.

and you know what to get them before they even ask,” Lasecki said. “I can have it ready when I see them pull into the parking lot.” Paul Scavone, co-owner of JS Sporting Goods in Wilkes-Barre Township, said the week before the trout opener ranks right next to the start of deer season as far as the busiest time of year in his store. And like the other bait shops, Scavone will open early and stay late to accommodate anglers. “Guys are already checking to see when we will be here,” he said. “We open at 6 a.m. on Saturday because a lot of guys like to get their minnows on the way to their fishing spot rather than buy them the night before.” Still, the longer hours don’t bother Scavone. After all, he said, he enjoys fishing as much as his customers and he shares their excitement for the trout season opener. “It’s a lot of fun and I enjoy talking about fishing with my customers and hearing about what’s going on,” Scavone said. “The camaraderie of the sport extends into the store as well.” If there’s one issue that gets anglers talking about the opening day of trout season, it’s the size of the fish that are stocked during the preseason. Lasecki said most of his customers have said the trout are nice this year, and Scavone has heard the same. “The guys that fished the early season in the southeast said the fish were really nice, and they seem to be pleased with the trout that have been stocked in this area too,” Scavone said. The only unknown heading into the season opener is the water conditions for area streams and the Lehigh River. Recent rainfall has pushed levels up, but if the rain holds off this week streams should be flowing at optimum levels for trout fishing. And even if things are still a bit high, Evans said it won’t discourage anglers from heading out. “Trout season is a tradition and we fish the first day no matter what the streams are like,” he said.

with his deputies and patrolling. So far he hasn’t seen many anglers coming out to help with the stockings, but he expects that to change this week. “I expect to see them come out more especially after all the horrible weather we’ve been having,” Cummings said. That weather, particularly the rain and cooler temperatures, have made water conditions a big question mark for opening day. Cummings said he has seen anglers have success in the past when water temperatures are 38 to 40 degrees and levels are a little high. “With how soaked the aquifers are now, I think we’ll be alright,” Cummings said. “But it’s really too early to say because there’s so many variables involved.” Lupacchini said the stocked streams in his district are running a bit high because of the recent rainfall, but as of now he doesn’t expect it to have a negative impact on the first day. “I’ve been checking the streams that have been stocked and fish don’t seem to have moved,” Lupaccchini said. “It should be a good day.” Another factor contributing to a good opening day is the size of the trout being stocked this year.

GAVLICK Continued from Page 9C

available to anglers on opening day? “We’ve been analyzing that for a while now – logisitics, which streams to stock, using more fingerlings – but no final decisions have been made yet. But there will be changes coming. It does make sense to stock streams closer to opening day and stock lakes earlier. We do know the fish move. It’s a problem. I think there will be some changes coming in time for next trout season.” Does the agency consider the native trout populations that exist in a stream before they decide

According to the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the average length and weight of a stocked trout is 11 inches and 6/ 10 of a pound. The agency raises the fish in their hatcheries for 16 to 18 months, and they stock more rainbows as opposed to brook and brown trout because they grow faster and are more economical to raise. “The fish are gorgeous since we’ve been giving them more time to grow in the hatcheries,” Cummings said. “If you’re looking to catch larger, chunkier fish, try Moon Lake, Lake Took-aWhile and Briar Creek Lake. They received their winter allocations of trout and those fish averaged 12 to 13 inches. There are plenty left for the opening day.” Add to the equation that many anglers – about half according to Cummings, practice catch-andrelease, and there should be plenty of large holdover trout from last year as well. “Some people see trout from last year and figure they don’t need to keep a limit,” Cummings said. But that’s not always the case. The temptation of fishing recently stocked waters is too much for some, and that’s why WCO’s like Cummings and Lupacchini spend countless hours, day and night, patrolling area streams and lakes to cut down on the amount of poaching that occurs before the season starts. Streams and lakes that are to stock it with hatchery fish? “Mixing native and stocked trout isn’t necessarily a good thing because the stocked trout tend to push the native population out. Maybe we can move these stocked trout to a stream with few or no native trout. But on the other hand, if the population of natives in a stream is small and fragile, maybe it’s more critical not to stock trout in those places. We’re looking at this and the current group of commissioners doesn’t take this issue lightly.” What are your thoughts on the fingerling study being conducted in the Lehigh River? “One of the goals with the Lehigh River is to turn it into a

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Suspended WR Floyd allowed to stay at ND

The Irish star was suspended last month after arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Suspended Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd cleared the first hurdle in his bid to return to the team when a disciplinary panel allowed him to stay at the school. “I’m grateful that I still have a chance to earn my degree from Notre Dame and be a member of the football team,” Floyd said in a statement Saturday, a day after his hearing before the Office of Residence Life. Coach Brian Kelly suspended the star wideout on March 21, the day after he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. It was Floyd’s third run-in with the law over alcohol since 2009. He has a May 2 court date. “I know that I still need to meet the requirements set by the university and Coach Kelly, and that I have a lot of work to do that and to prove that I’ve grown from this experience,”

Floyd said. “I’m sorry again for the poor decisions I’ve made and for letting so many people down.” Kelly had no “drop-dead” date for a decision on whether he will reinstate Floyd, Notre Dame’s career leader in touchdown catches (28). The senior ranks second in school history in catches (171) and third in receiving yards (2,539). “I can only comment on what I do as a football program,” Kelly said during a news conference Saturday. “And, as you know, Michael is suspended, and that is indefinite. This is not about anything except how I handle our players.” Kelly emphasized that Floyd has a long way to go before he can return to the team. “Everybody has jumped to conclusions that Mike Floyd is going to play football. Mike has so many things on his plate that he has to handle before he can even think about football,” the coach said. “Academics, and personally, he’s got a lot of things in front of him that he has to go through before we even start thinking about football.”

stocked with trout are closed to fishing from March 1 until opening day. Still, Lupacchini said he has already caught people catching and keeping trout from stocked areas. “The most common excuse they give us is they didn’t know or they didn’t think they would get caught,” he said. “When we see people poaching fish, they’re trying to catch as world class fishery. It is a lot cheaper for us to stock fingerlings, and if the program works in the Lehigh (establishing a population with fingerling trout and stocking fewer adult trout) then maybe we can make that transition to fingerlings in the river. We may have to blend stockings of adult trout and fingerlings for a few years while we make that transition.” Do you support the agency’s approach to stocking fewer, but larger trout? “It seems to be working well. The one problem is you have less fish being stocked, but other than that it does seem very popular and anglers like the larger fish.” Is gas drilling a concern when

many as they can. It’s theft. A lot of times these people don’t have licenses to begin with, so they’re basically stealing from those who bought a license and a trout stamp and wait for the opening day.

At any given time, day or night, we can show up at any stocked stream or lake.” it comes to potentially impacting trout streams? “With the amount of drilling going on, there’s always that concern. Unfortunately we don’t have any pro-active enforcement authority. We do work closely with the state Department of Environmental Protection in reviewing permits, and the stream assessment program we have has been successful in preventing problems. A year ago we began working with colleges to assess streams that have never been assessed before and it has helped. In northern Lycoming County we assessed a stream that was never looked at and discovered a native trout population. This was just prior to a company submit-

Jim Calhoun, coach of the NCAA champions University of Connecticut men’s basketball team threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to Yankees at Red Sox game Saturday at Fenway Park.

Calhoun still undecided The coach of national champion UConn plans on recruiting, playing golf.

By HOWARD ULMAN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Jim Calhoun was excited to return to Fenway Park to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The longtime Red Sox fan is in no rush to decide whether to return as coach of Connecticut. Just five days after leading the Huskies to the NCAA basketball championship for the third time, the Boston native said Saturday he hasn’t decided whether to come back for a 26th season. “I can guarantee you I haven’t made my mind up in any way,” Calhoun said. “I’m just going to try to get this team ready for next year and we’ll see what happens.” Last Tuesday, the day after the Huskies beat Butler 53-41 for the championship, Calhoun said he plans to play golf and reflect on the season before deciding whether to return.

For now, he’s doing what coaches do in the offseason. “We’re working very hard, recruiting-wise,” Calhoun said. “I would do that regardless of what I’m doing (next season).” He had no doubts about what he wanted to do on Saturday before the Red Sox game against the New York Yankees — stand on the mound at Fenway Park, where he once pitched in an American Legion all-star game about 50 years ago. “To come back home is really nice,” said Calhoun, who was raised about two miles “as the crow flies” from the ballpark. “And to come back home in these circumstances (as champion) is even nicer.” Calhoun coached basketball at Dedham High School just outside Boston before becoming coach at Northeastern in 1972 and Connecticut in 1986. “I had an opportunity to do something else today, but there was nothing else for me except for my Red Sox,” he said. “Yesterday I had been fortunate enough to be at Wall Street and open the

(stock) market and that was great, but this is home. This is home for me.” Bruce Berman, a Boston University professor, threw a ceremonial pitch before Calhoun. It bounced in the grass about halfway to home plate. “I got pressure taken off of me,” Calhoun joked. “I don’t want to cast any aspersions on anybody, but the professor from BU really helped me a great deal. I appreciate it.” His own pitch, delivered righthanded from the rubber, made it all the way to the plate. Boston manager Terry Francona caught the high throw in the right-hand hitter’s batter’s box — although Calhoun smiled and raised his right hand to signal a strike. The 68-year-old Calhoun said he was asked if he wanted to throw from in front of the mound. “That would be like playing from the senior tees,” he said. “I’m just not going to do that. That’s not going to happen. I could throw a baseball pretty good at one time.”

Will Power focused on winning

Wozniacki reaches finals

CHARLESTON, S.C. — First, Caroline Wozniacki broke Jelena Jankovic’s serve. Then the world’s top-ranked player broke her opponent’s spirit. Wozniacki broke Jankovic’s serve five times Saturday in a 6-4, 6-4 semifinal victory at the Family Circle Cup. Also demoralizing, Jankovic acknowledged, were the extended rallies on the green clay court. “She always makes you play an extra ball,” Jankovic said. Wozniacki reached the tournament final for the second time in three appearances. She lost to Sabine Lisicki in 2009 and will take on unseeded Elena Vesnina in today’s title match. The 20-year-old Dane had escaped her past two matches, winning two tiebreakers against Barbora Zahlavova Strycova on Thursday and overcoming a 4-2 deficit in the third set to beat Yanina Wickmayer in the quarterfinals. Wozniacki knew she couldn’t start that slowly again and make it through. “I had to be aggressive and hit it deep because (Jankovic) is such a good fighter,” she said. That was apparent as the two traded line-drive groundstrokes throughout the nearly two-hour match on the windy stadium court at the Family Circle Tennis Center. The first three games all went to deuce. Jankovic led 4-3 in the first set before Wozniacki rallied to take the final three games, breaking her opponent twice in that stretch. The back-and-forth resumed in the second set until the ultrasteady Wozniacki pounced on her opponent’s errors. Tied at 4all and up 30-love, Jankovic

gave away the next four points, three on balls hit long and one hit into the net. Jankovic sailed the ball long on match point. “Some other players, you think it will be a winner,” Jankovic said. “With her, it somehow comes back.” Wozniacki and Jankovic share similar styles and frustrations at times. Wozniacki said balls she’s accustomed to watching go for winners were hit back. “So I think we were pretty even,” Wozniacki said. Vesnina, 56th in the world, defeated China’s Peng Shuai 7-6 (4), 6-3 to advance. Vesnina had considered skipping Charleston a month ago because of continuing problems with her wrist.

A technique change suggested by her father and coach, Sergey Vesnin, helped relieved the pain and Vesnina entered. It was a good decision. Vesnina hadn’t been past the quarterfinals in five previous appearances and beat four seeded players, including No. 5 in world Samantha Stosur, to reach her first singles final of the season. “I’m telling you, I’m just enjoying my time on the court,” she said. Next up is the toughest out of all in Wozniacki. The two finalists have played five times with Wozniacki winning all but one. “I know her game pretty well,” Vesnina said. “And it just depends how I feel, how Caroline will play tomorrow.”

MIAMI — Somehow, after 79 games, nothing between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat has been decided. Boston, 55-24. Miami, 55-24. Tied for the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference, one team will take a stranglehold on the race for home-court through at least the first two playoff rounds today when the Celtics and Heat meet in Miami. Boston is 3-0 in the season-series between the clubs, and has won18 of its last 20 games against the Heat since April 2007. But if Miami finds a way today, that Celtic dominance may be temporarily forgotten. “Let’s toss the ball up and play,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Saturday. “We think we’re a different team than the last three times we’ve played them, but until we prove it in between the lines, it doesn’t matter.” The Heat are understandably thrilled that Game 4 of the regular-season series is in Miami. That won’t be the case if Game 4 of a potential Heat-Celtics postseason series is also in Miami. The No. 1 seed in the East has been locked up by the Chicago

Bulls, and in some order, seeds 2 and 3 will go to Miami and Boston. So that means the Heat and Celtics will be slotted to meet in the East semifinals — where Games 1, 2, 5 and 7 would be hosted by the higher seed. “This is a big game for us,” Boston forward Paul Pierce said in a story published on the team’s website, Celtics.com. “That’s what we are playing for, for the home court advantage. Not only for the first round, but hopefully we will see them in the second round. This is a big game for us when you are talking about seeds and trying to advance in the playoffs. It’s huge.” For the Heat, there’s more at stake than just home-court. This season began with great hubbub in Boston, the team that not only ousted Miami from the playoffs a year ago, but also knocked out Cleveland — and LeBron James — in the second round last spring. Simply put, the Heat just want to prove to themselves that they can beat the Celtics. “We’re going against a team that we haven’t beaten this year, that we kind of looked at before the season as needing to get to that point as far as chemistry, as far as what they do as a team,” James said.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Will Power is focusing on two things at the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. He wants to get through the first turn incident free and avoid the strategic blunder that cost him a win last year at Barber Motorsports Park. IndyCar is using a NASCARstyle double-file start and restarts for the second time today, following a season opener in which some drivers complained about the new setup. Stars Helio Cas“I just troneves and want to Scott Dixon were among make it those who work. I re- found trouble while some ally want fans were still to win it.” settling in at St. Will Power Petersburg in the first of several incidents on March 27. And this time? “I think they’re going to go early and spread them out and hopefully stop the mayhem,” Power said. Or at least postpone the crowdpleasing dustups until the race really gets going. IndyCar officials weren’t expected to make a final decision on the track-specific restart rules until race day. Power likely will be able to avoid early trouble since he’s starting up front for the second straight race this season. He captured the pole Saturday at the 2.38-mile road course, where he also qualified first last season in the track’s IndyCar debut. He squandered an opportunity for a victory last year when he made a third pit stop while other fuel-conserving drivers stayed out, costing him a lead he never recovered. Power wound up finishing fourth, and was runner-up in the championship standings to Dario Franchitti by five points after leading the series in wins and poles. A second-place finish at Barber would have pushed him to the top. The Australian came into Alabama last year trying to become the first IndyCar driver to open a season with three straight wins. “I’m very focused on winning this race,” said Power, who picked up four victories and didn’t finish worse than third on any of the other road or street courses in 2010. “I really want to win it, because I felt we had a really good car last year, a better car than we have this year with speed. We just made a wrong call down on strategy. I just want to make it work. I really want to win it.” Power will be surrounded by teammates at the start today. Ryan Briscoe will be on his outside and defending champion Helio Castroneves will be in the second group, next to Scott Dixon. “I’m very confident here,” Power said. “It’s one of my favorite circuits. I’ve got a lot of miles around here, as has everyone. It makes for a very, very tight competition, which is already very tight this year. I think you could go through the whole field, name every driver, and you can’t pick one guy that isn’t capable of winning a race. That’s what we’re dealing with now.” Justin Wilson and Oriol Servia will start in the third row, while St. Petersburg winner and twotime defending series champion Dario Franchitti opens seventh. Danica Patrick will be near the rear at No. 22 in the 26-car field. If Power remembers last year’s race mostly for the miscalculation, Castroneves has much fonder memories. He celebrated the victory with his traditional fence climbing that earned him the nickname Spiderman, and posed for a photo with his then-infant daughter, Mikaella.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Steve Spurrier is passing, Danny Wuerffel is getting ready to throw and Tim Tebow is, well, doing what he does best. He’s running with the ball. Florida honored its three Heisman Trophy winners with lifesized statues outside the stadium. The Gators unveiled bronze statues of Spurrier (1966), Wuerffel (1996) and Tebow (2007) during halftime of Saturday’s spring game. The thing that stood out was Tebow’s depiction. “That’s fine,” Tebow said. “You have to change it up. We can’t all be throwing.” Tebow and Wuerffel were on hand for the unveiling. Spurrier thanked his alma mater in a videotaped message. He was in Columbia, S.C., for South Carolina’s spring game. One of his daughters, Amy Moody, attended the ceremony in his place. “It’s kind of hard to put in words,” Moody said. “It’s not often in life people dedicate a statue to you. It means a great deal.” The statues, which weigh between 1,700 and 2,000 pounds, were placed on the west side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium near the skybox entrance. They were paid for by private donations. “When do you ever think growing up that you’ll have a statue somewhere where people will look at it and have great memo-

The prosecution has momentum

Lockout dampens new coach strategy

Parrella’s closing argument could very well have secured the deal for the government.

Munchak is familiar with Titan’s players, but coaches and players can’t talk.

By PAUL ELIAS Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Prosecutors were down to their last chance, and possibly losing the case. Several apparent setbacks, culminating with the disastrous testimony of one of their main witnesses, had created a consensus that most — if not all — of the Barry Bonds perjury case had slipped through the government’s fingers after nearly three weeks of trial. Then Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Parrella took to the lectern Thursday to deliver the government’s final word through his closing argument. “There’s a real irony to this case,” Parrella said minutes before the judge turned the case over the jury for deliberations. His simple pitch: “Do you believe that a professional athlete of Bonds’ caliber would gullibly take unknown creams and liquids supplied by a sometimes homeless gym rat — his personal trainer Greg Anderson?” Bonds faces three charges of lying to a grand jury in 2003 by denying he knowingly took steroids and human growth hormone from Anderson and by saying no one other than his doctors injected him with anything. He also faces an obstruction of justice count. The jury deliberated all day Friday and will start work again Monday. If the panel of eight women and four men convict Bonds, legal analysts and courtroom observers said Parrella’s closing argument could very well have secured the deal for the government. “He did a good job of conveying to the jury the evidence it

needed to consider,” said Golden Gate University law professor Peter Keane. “He gave a very simple explanation.” Keane and others also said Parrella made big strides in containing the considerable damage Dr. Arthur Ting appeared to cause the government’s case after prosecutors called him to the witness stand March 31. Ting, Bonds’ orthopedic surgeon, contradicted the key government testimony of Steve Hoskins, Bonds’ former business partner and estranged childhood friend. Hoskins spent two days on the witness stand during the first week of the trial. Hoskins testified that he and Ting had as many as 50 conversations about Bonds and steroids. Ting denied having any such conversations, including telling Hoskins that Bonds’ 1999 elbow

injury was caused by steroids. That testimony surprised prosecutors, who were derided for calling Ting to the witness stand. The momentum of the trial shifted dramatically in favor of Bonds. “There’s an old law school maxim that you never ask a question that you don’t know the answer to,” said Stanford University Law School professor William Gould. “I will forever remain perplexed by the calling of Dr. Ting. I don’t understand what they were thinking.” Ting did testify that in 1999 he gave Hoskins five pages of a scientific article discussing the effects and dangers of steroids.

the government, OK, and the reason he was called is because the government had nothing to hide,” Parrella told the jury Thursday. “We had relevant evidence that we needed from him and we put him on. We weren’t afraid to put him on. We have nothing to hide.” Parrella told the jury that prosecutors felt the scientific article was important evidence and that’s why they called Ting, who has operated on numerous professional athletes, including former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana. Ting smiled at Bonds’ mother and shook the hand of one of the slugger’s entourage when he finished testifying. Parrella speculated before the jury that Ting was “a celebrity doctor trying to soften the blow for a celebrity crime.”

After some bright sunshine yesterday, it will be harder to come by today. The good news is that warmer air continues to feed into the region. An approaching warm front will help to boost our temperatures into the 50s again today, maybe even near 60 in spots that get a little sun. That same front will spark a few showers later this evening. But the real weather story is tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to skyrocket through the 70s tomorrow as summer-like warmth surges out of the deep South. Some spots may top out near 80. But a fast-moving cold front quickly brings up back to reality, with some showers and storms late in the day. Still, the rest of the week features temperatures at or slightly above the seasonal averages. -Ryan Coyle
