Lawton: No more for Sterling I F YO U GO

County manager to recommend to county council that it should back away.

The County Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. today in the county’s Emergency Management Agency building on Water Street, WilkesBarre.

By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton has advised county council to stop spending money on the Hotel Sterling project in downtown WilkesBarre. Lawton said in his written report to council, which was publicly released Monday, that demolition of the structure at River and Market streets

would approach $1.5 million. The expenditure would deplete a “significant portion” of the county’s $11 million community development business loan fund, he said. The county may recoup this expense by reselling the cleared Lawton 3.34-acre parcel, but there’s “little likelihood” the county would get back the $6 million already loaned to the nonprofit owner, CityVest, to preserve and market the structure, Lawton wrote.

“Further, the county’s acquisition of the Sterling would place it in the chain of ownership, exposing the county to liability issues related to the site and its contents,” he wrote. Lawton said the county could be liable if demolition damaged adjacent properties, including the Sterling Annex purchased by the Greater WilkesBarre Chamber of Business and Industry.

WILKES-BARRE – Mayor Thomas Leighton wants to lease city parking garages, lots and meters to an outside company in exchange for a $20 million windfall. Leighton announced Monday thecitywillexploreapossiblelease of its parking assets for a “minimum bid price of $20 million” that would be reinvested into public safety, anti-blight and infrastructure iniLeighton tiatives. The proposal will be put out for bid, he said. “We believe that this lease provides the city an opportunity to inject a significant amount of funding into vital city initiatives without burdening the taxpayers,” Leighton said.

James Rankin, 21, is alleged to have been involved in a home invasion on Monday. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE -- A city police officer shot a man in what appears to be a home invasion on Kidder Street early Monday morning. It was the fifth reported home invasion in the area in the last three weeks, but a state police spokesman said it would be “premature” to link it to any others. The man, identified as James Rankin, 21, address unknown, suffered a single gunshot wound while being pursued by the officer on Laurel Street just before 4 a.m. Rankin underwent surgery at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital and is expected to survive. State police Lt. Richard Krawetz, commander of the criminal investigation unit, said city police responded to a reported home invasion involving an armed man in the 200 block of Kidder Street.

WILKES-BARRE – For the first time, the parents of Tyler Winstead on Monday spoke out about their 14-year-old son’s shooting death near his Hill Street home last week, saying authorities aren’t keeping them informed. Christine and Terrence Winstead Sr. said they spent as much time as they could over the years visiting with Tyler and his siblings, who live with Christine’s parents, the children’s legal guardians. But a family rift made it difficult. And because of the strained relationships between the adults, Ter- A younger Tyler rence and Christine say they feel excluded, not only from Tyler’s funeral plans, but from sharing in any knowledge of progress – or lack thereof – in the investigation of their son’s homicide. “As his parents, we have a right to know,” Christine Winstead said late Monday afternoon at her and Terrence’s Willow Street home. “I need to know for peace of mind, for peace of heart. It’s a senseless crime. He was just a child. To be gunned down like that, it’s not right.” Tyler Winstead was walking with a friend after playing basketball at the Catholic Youth Center on South Washington Street when he was shot in the chest in front of 117-119 Hill St. He lived with his grandparents, Willie and Carol Golden, who were his legal guardians, a few houses away from where he was shot, authorities have said.

Warrior Run worried about drug activity Residents say they want to see more presence by Nanticoke police. By SUSAN DENNEY Times Leader Correspondent

WARRIOR RUN -- A heated discussion broke out at the borough council meeting after a resident complained about alleged drug activity and the lack of police presence near his home. He said he feared for the safety of his four children. Several residents backed up his claims of drug dealing in the borough

streets. Other residents agreed the amount of time the Nanticoke police spent in the borough had diminished since last year. Council President Robert Daylida agreed with the residents. “I’m seeing less of them too,” he said. The borough contracts with Nanticoke for police protection. Nanticoke’s chief of police was not in attendance at the meeting. Daylida said residents must call 9-1-1 when they see drug activity so that the police can respond. “People have to get more in-

volved,” he said. In another matter, an upset resident said she wanted access to the borough’s records on sewer payments. Solicitor James Pyrah assured her the records are public and she needs to file a “right to know” form with the borough secretary. He also said the borough had filed several liens this year and last against those not paying their sewer bills. In other business, the preliminary estimate for repairs to the Chestnut, Front and Short Street floodwater systems was present-

Pasonick said the estimate was the minimum and costs could rise depending on the requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, which will also be involved in the project. Pasonick told council it must

decide what to do with the community development funding it will receive. To which Daylida said, “I don’t know what we’re going to do.” The solicitor announced that the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority has asked the borough to pass an ordinance that will bring it into compliance with federal guidelines on industrial pretreatment requirements to prevent pollution. The council will advertise the ordinance and it will come up for approval at next month’s meeting.

Solicitor will look into procedures to reduce board size from 7 to 5 members. By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

WEST WYOMING -- Council voted Monday to authorize the borough solicitor to look into procedures that would reduce the size of council from seven to five members. With only 2,700 residents, the borough doesn’t need a sevenmember council, said Councilman Dan Gadomski. “This is such a small borough,” he said. “Trying to find people to sit on council is brutal.” In other matter, Gerald Bonita, judge of elections, asked council to warn campaigners in the April 24election that they must hand out campaign cards at least 10 feet from the borough building, which will serve as a polling place. The distance restriction is set by the county, Bonita pointed out. In other news, council announced that Charney Park will soon be getting a makeover,

Washington man on the run from police updates Facebook By DOUG ESSER Associated Press

SEATTLE — He’s on the lam, but Travis A. Nicolaysen still had time to update his Facebook page. The 26-year-old has eluded authorities since two foot chases Wednesday and a dragnet that included a police dog tracking him through a Port Angeles neighborhood. The dog came up only with a blue bandanna he had been wearing. His first day on the run, one friend posted to his account: “Cops all over you.” Nicolaysen responded the next day with: “ya got away thanks bro.” A post from another friend told him to be careful. Another urged

him to surrender and set a better example for his children. “You’re not getting any younger and you’re looking at a lot of time,” the friend writes. A picture on the Facebook page shows Nicolaysen with two toddlers. Nicolaysen has been convicted of five felonies, including domestic violence, burglary and theft of a firearm, police said. He is wanted by the Washington state Department of Corrections for failing to check in with his community corrections officer since January. He’s accused of assaulting his girlfriend on March 28. Better make that his ex-girlfriend. In a post Saturday, Nicolaysen changed his relationship status to single, the Peninsula Daily News reported.

MIDDLETOWN -- One Powerball ticket worth $2 million from the April 7 drawing was sold at Xtra Mart, 114 W. Hartford St., Milford, Pike County, according to Pennsylvania Lottery officials. The ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 05-13-17-2030, but not the red Powerball 18, and added Power Play, which sets the prize at $2 million, less 25 percent federal withholding. This is Pennsylvania’s first $2 million match-five Power Play prize since enhancements to

Powerball took effect in January. Before those changes, this prize would have been worth only $1 million. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling this winning ticket. Before the game was changed, it would have earned a $5,000 bonus corresponding with the smaller jackpot. Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the April 7 winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

Late artist’s work is selling out Thomas Kinkade, 54, the self-described "Painter of Light," died Friday. The Associated Press

PLACERVILLE, Calif. — In Thomas Kinkade’s hometown, at the gallery where his art career first took off, an original painting by the self-described “Painter of Light” sat unsold for years. Buyers were perhaps deterred by the $110,000 asking price. The painting, “Sunday Outing,” was being sold on consignment, and when word came Friday night that Kinkade had died, its owner called and asked for the selling price to be raised to $150,000, gallerist Nathan Ross said Monday. The painting sold hours later. It wasn’t the only one. Barraged with orders from customers in person, on the phone and online, Ross has called in as much extra help as he can find. He said on a typical day he’ll sell one to five Kinkade pieces through the gallery’s website. In the last 48 hours, he says he’s received about 300 online orders. “Phones are just ringing nonstop. We have five lines and

they’re constantly lit up. People are waiting in line to buy paintings,” Ross said. “It’s just been a real juggling match to make sure everyone gets taken care of.” Other galleries across the country that specialize in Kinkade’s work are reporting a similar surge in sales following the popular painter’s death at age 54. John Vassallo, who owns five Kinkade galleries in New York and New Jersey, says sales on Saturday reached half his typical sales for the entire month of December, the busiest month of the year. Like most Kinkade retailers, Vassallo traffics not in originals but limited edition reproductions, many of which come hand-signed by the artist himself. Any piece with Kinkade’s original signature is in high demand at a cost of $8,000 to $15,000, said Vassallo, who counted Kinkade as a personal friend. “It’s been a tragic cost unfortunately,” Vassallo said of Kinkade’s death, “but I know that Thom is looking down and bringing the people.” Vassallo also said he believed Kinkade likely left behind unreleased work that would help

feed public demand even after the painter’s death. The Morgan Hill company that produces and distributes Kinkade’s art hinted in a weekend message to gallery owners and employees that such work did indeed exist. “He leaves behind a rich legacy of published and unpublished work and has inspired generations of artists to follow in his brushstrokes,” Thomas Kinkade Co. CEO John Hasting wrote in the statement. Hasting said later that the company was heartened by the outpouring of appreciation of Kinkade’s work. The company hasn’t offered any specifics on how much sales have increased. Though no one knows how long it will last, the renewed interest in Kinkade would seem to represent something of a reversal of fortune. In 2010, one of Kinkade’s companies filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after many years of huge commercial success. The bankruptcy filing came as the company had started making payments on an almost $3 million court award to two disgruntled former gallerists. Kinkade died Friday at his home in Los Gatos of what his family said was apparent natural causes.

LOCAL Juvie bills’ signing a vindication Corbett puts name on legislation By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Six years ago, HillaryTransuewaivedherrighttoanattorney at a juvenile hearing before former Judge Mark Ciavarella, and she was incarcerated for a minor offense. On Monday, Transue, now 20, said she and her peers should feel vindicated after Gov. Tom Corbett signed two pieces of legislation into law at the Luzerne County

Courthouse. “Four years ago, Pennsylvanians witnessed a scandal that shocked the conscience,” Corbett said, referring to the 2008 indictments of two former county judges, Ciavarella and Michael Conahan. “Now, we are taking action to prevent fu-

ture injustice against our children.” The bills, Senate bills 815 and 818, sponsored by state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, require that legal counsel be present at juvenile delinquency hearings for juveniles under 14. Those14andoldermaywaivetheirright to counsel, but only in limited circumstances. That bill, Corbett said, becomes effective in 60 days. Bill 818 requires a judge to state why each juvenile received the disposition they were given. If that juvenile is committed to

an out-of-home placement, a judge must name the facility and give reasoning behind why that facility was selected, Baker said. It is effective immediately. “What we do here (today) will protect kids in the future,” Baker said, thanking Corbett, fellow legislators and current Luzerne County judges. “And, thank you to the kids and parents who had the courage to come forward and say this is not right.” Baker said two other bills are expected See CORBETT, Page 7A

A city man charged with luring a man into a home, hitting him with a bat and robbing him pleaded guilty Monday to related charges. Tremayne Hampton, 22, of North Empire Court, entered the plea to charges of aggravated assault and robbery before Luzerne County Judge David Lupas. Hampton will be sentenced June 15. According to court papers, James Karlowicz told police in November 2011 that he was standing in the parking lot of South Main Plaza off South Main Street where he was approached by two men offering to sell speakers. Karlowicz told them he wanted to look at the speakers before he committed to buying them. Police said the two men walked Karlowicz to the rear of 105 Sambourne St. Karlowicz said one of the men entered an apartment when Hampton appeared and struck him with a baseball bat, the complaint says. Karlowicz said his wallet, which did not have any money, was taken from him. YATESVILLE

Wilkes professors highest paid in the area Average annual salary is $100,300, ahead of University of Scranton’s $99,100, statistics show. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

Wilkes University is the place to teach if you can land a full-professorship and money is important, according to new college staff salary data. The average annual salary for a full professor at Wilkes is $100,300, the highest in the area, with the University of Scranton running a close second at $99,100.

The figures come from the 2011-12 salary survey conducted by the American Association of University Professors and compiled into a searchable database by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The online database does not have information about King’s College. According to the Chronicle, the Association of University Professors is using this year’s data to combat claims that faculty salaries are causing rapid increases in college tuition rates. The survey of 1,251 institutions showed that the average salary for professors, associate professors and instructors rose by1.8 percent in one year, less than the inflation rate and far less

than tuition has been rising. Locally, the University of Scranton had the highest average for associate professors, $66,400. Misericordia University had the lowest average pay for full professors and associates, $69,600 and $56,000 respectively. Penn State University full professors at the main campus averaged $132,100, the seventh highest among 84 Pennsylvania institutions surveyed. Associates averaged $89,200, and assistants averaged $76,100. The data does not break out other Penn State campuses, giving averages See SALARIES, Page 4A

Dallas schools eliminate full-time maintenance job Position, which was vacant because of a resignation, will be turned into a part-time groundskeeper job. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – The Dallas School Board unanimously voted Monday to eliminate a full-time maintenance position in favor of a part-time one. Last month, some board members had concerns about abolishing the laborer position in the maintenance department because of the increased needs of campus maintenance since the completion of the new high school building last year. The board tabled the motion to remove the position, which was open due to the resignation of an employee, until Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds Mark Kraynack could provide the board with documentation about how the department would be affected by the change. Kraynack said that after discussing the issue with the board, he found that the groundskeeper staff was lacking. The board approved a motion to add a

part-time groundskeeper position to help ease the workload. Kraynack said the groundskeeper position duties include plowing snow, cutting grass and tending to the outdoors areas of campus. The board also approved a 15 cent increase to all student lunches for the 201213 school year, which will bring the highest price for a school lunch from $1.90 to $2.05. Superintendent Frank Galicki said the increase in cost is attributed to meeting the federal standard for school lunch prices, as well as the current economic climate. The board also heard from Eugene Kelleher and John Brougher, representatives of the Back Mountain Ecumenical Group, about a potential project to honor Dallas graduates who have been injured or killed during service in the armed forces. Kelleher said the group is raising funds through the 1st Lt. Michael Cleary Fund to purchase plaques to honor those from Dallas High School who have been awarded purple hearts or gold stars. Cleary, formerly of Dallas, was killed in December 2005 during combat in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

W H AT ’ S N E X T The next Dallas School Board meeting will be at 7 p.m. May 7 in the administration building.

Brougher said he hopes to have a group or individual from the high school take over the project, but the men’s group has worked to design the plaques and set up rules for the program. The 14-inch plaques would include a seal from the branch of the military in which the person served along with their name, rank and date of receiving the award. Brougher said more research needs to be done to determine how many Dallas graduates would be honored through this program. He said anyone wishing to make a donation to the project could do so through the 1st Lt. Michael Cleary Fund, which is operated through the Luzerne Foundation. In other business, the following three fall sports positions are open at the high school: girls tennis coach with a stipend of $2,217 and two girls soccer co-coach positions with stipends of $3,033 each.

WILKES-BARRE – A Plymouth man charged with shooting and killing a 17-year-old girl during a fight with his brother was sentenced Monday to five to 10 years in state prison. Martin Joseph Beamer, 25, of West Shawnee Avenue, was sentenced on charges of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault by Judge David Lupas after the May 1, 2011, shooting that left Samantha Clau- Beamer dio dead. “I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart,” Beamer said Monday. “(Samantha) was a friend who meant a lot to me. … I wish I could take it back.” Prosecutors say Beamer and his brother, John Bogdon, were at Beamer’s home when Beamer placed a live round into a 9mm pistol in an attempt to scare Bogdon into leaving. Beamer held the gun in one hand while grabbing Bogdon’s shirt with his other as Bogdon threw punches, court papers say. The gun went off, and Claudio screamed and ran into the kitchen, where she collapsed, police said. “I tried to save her,” Beamer said, who was assisted by his mother, Tracy, until paramedics arrived. “No matter how much (prison) time I do … I’ll have to live with (her death) the rest of my life.” Beamer’s attorney, Thomas Cometa, said his client accepted responsibility and has been remorseful since surrendering to police immediately. That, Assistant District Attorney Frank McCabe, said is something that rarely happens. “(Beamer) has been cooperative from the beginning,” McCabe said. “He was there when the ambulance came and admitted (to the killing) from the beginning.” McCabe said Beamer’s actions have affected the lives of his own family as well as Claudio’s. “It’s a tragic shame,” McCabe said. Members of Claudio’s family were present Monday, including two of her sisters, who told Lupas they wanted justice for their sister. In a plea agreement, prosecutors sought a mandatory minimum of five to 10 years in prison for Beamer. Beamer must pay a total of $3,798 in restitution and received credit for time served from May 2, 2011 to Monday. “This was not an intentional killing, but still had tragic consequences,” Lupas said. “It was an unfortunate decision to pull out a weapon. I wish people would realize that if they decide to pull a weapon, (something like) this could happen.”

At master’s level campuses, full professors averaged $113,400, associates averaged $89,700, assistants averaged $74,200 and instructors averaged $55,300. At baccalaureate level campuses, the figures were $97,200, $76,900, $64,000 and $49,100, respectively. Both the Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton campuses are baccalaureate level.

Wyoming to more strictly enforce dog ordinances W H AT ’ S N E X T

By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

WYOMING -- Borough council announced Monday that it will stress enforcement of all dog ordinance laws in the community in response to residents’ concerns. Mayor Bob Boyer said ordinances in regards to curbing, barking and leashing would be a priority for the police department. He also said that all dogs roaming free and unlicensed within the borough will be reported to the county dog warden for immediate action.

She was scheduled for a March 5 bond hearing in Gallagher’s court, and when she did not show, the judge issued a warrant for her arrest.

The next regular council meeting will be on May 7 at 7:30 p.m.

In another matter, council unanimously approved the hiring of Jason Slatcoff and Randy Shaw as part-time police officers to begin immediately at a wage of $12.50 per hour. Also, council approved an ordinance to purchase 12 trees from the borough’s shade tree account that will be planted on borough properties and parks.

AKRON, Ohio — An Ohio woman accused of injuring animals, animal cruelty and numerous drug offenses while posing as a veterinarian will remain in the Summit County Jail after a judge refused to reduce her bond. Brandi Ann Tomko, 35, of Sharon Township, made a brief appearance Monday before Common Pleas Judge Paul Gallagher. Her attorney, John Greven, asked Gallagher to reduce her 10 percent, $100,000 bond, saying the sensationalized aspects of her case obscure the fact that she has been charged solely with low-level felonies and misdemeanors. "Very seldom, I think, do you see F4s, F5s and a bunch of misdemeanors have a bond set at $100,000, 10 percent. This is a lady who has one prior felony conviction, and it happened about 10 years ago," Greven said. Two Cleveland television crews shot the proceedings as he addressed the court. "The other thing, judge, is she has known about this investigation for quite some time. The allegations that they are saying

people harm because of that. There’s also an identity fraud case where she’s stolen the identity of a veterinarian. "The state’s position is that Ms. Tomko is where she needs to be right now and is a risk to the community if she were to be released." In another felony case filed after a Jan. 24 traffic arrest, Tomko was indicted on charges of hero-

happened ended about a year ago, and she didn’t run away from it, she didn’t leave town. She’s been around the entire time," Greven said. He then asked the judge to consider a "significant bond reduction." Gallagher refused and kept the current terms in place. Tomko has been named in a 33-count indictment containing 15 drug-related felonies, identity fraud, theft, practicing without a license and five counts each of injuring animals, cruelty to animals and cruelly keeping animals inside a residential dwelling. The charges involving the animals are misdemeanors. That fact prompted a small number of protesters to appear outside the courtroom asking for harsher penalties in such cases. Prosecutors contend the offenses occurred between February 2010 and April 2011 while Tomko was treating pets at the C&D Animal Hospital in East Akron. The facility closed last May. Gregory Peacock, the assistant county prosecutor handling Tomko’s case, gave a brief account of some of the state’s allegations in his argument opposing a bond reduction. "She clearly has a drug addiction that she can’t control," Peacock told the judge, "and she obviously has caused numerous

Terrence Sr. said a detective handing a business card to Tyler’s grandmother but failing to give one to Tyler’s mother on Friday suggested otherwise. But Salavantis said authorities did not distinguish between parents and grandparents when they met with them on Friday. “The family as a whole was affected by this tragedy,” she said, adding that no family members have been “provided much information at all because it’s an ongoing investigation.”

KILIS, Turkey — The bloody conflict in Syria spilled across two tense borders Monday when gunfire from government forces killed a cameraman in Lebanon and wounded at least six people in a refugee camp in Turkey, authorities said. The Obama administration condemned the cross-border attacks, which came as a ceasefire brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan appeared on the verge of collapse. The cease-fire was supposed to go

into effect today. “These incidents are just another indication that the Assad regime does not seem at all willing to meet the commitments that it made to Kofi Annan,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters in Washington. “Not only has the violence not abated, it has been worse in recent days,” she said. The violence bolstered fears that the uprising could spark a broader regional conflagration by sucking in neighboring countries. Under the Annan plan, Syrian troops were meant to pull out of population centers by this morning, but President Bashar Assad’s government on Sunday introduced a new, lastminute demand — saying

State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky issued a gag order Monday that severely limits what attorneys on both sides may say to reporters. Judge John Cleland’s order also applies to any law enforcement investigator who has ever worked on the case and anyone acting on behalf of the lawyers. The off-limit topics include evidence; opinions about Sandusky’s guilt or innocence or about legal and factual matters under discussion; and “the reputation, character, credibility or criminal record of the defendant or any witness, prospective witness or organization which is or may testify at trial, or be the subject of trial testimony or evidence.” Cleland said he was acting to help ensure a “fair, impartial and orderly trial” for Sandusky, a proceeding scheduled to begin June 5 in Bellefonte.

3rd nuke test for N. Korea? Recent satellite images show North Korea is digging a new underground tunnel in what appears to be preparation for a third nuclear test, according to South Korean intelligence officials. The excavation at North Korea’s northeast Punggye-ri site, where nuclear tests were conducted in 2006 and 2009, is in its final stages, according to a report by intelligence officials that was shared Monday. Its release comes as North Korea prepares to launch a long-range rocket that Washington and others say is a cover for testing missile technology that could be used to fire on the United States. The Obama administration said Monday it would consider both a rocket launch and an underground nuclear test as highly provocative and leave Pyongyang more isolated. INDIANAPOLIS

‘Sextortion’ victims sought Investigators are trying to identify hundreds of potential victims whose images were found on the computer of an Indiana man charged with coercing two teenage boys into recording sexually explicit videos by threatening to post clips of their previous online indiscretions on gay porn websites. Richard Leon Finkbiner, 39, was arrested Friday at his home in Clay County and faces two preliminary counts of sexually exploiting a child. He remained in custody Monday. Finkbiner estimated to FBI agents that he had coerced at least 100 young people into making explicit videos, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Terre Haute. U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett said Monday that it could end up becoming the biggest U.S. “sextortion” case to date.

Martin shooting won’t go to a grand jury Prosecutor says decision has no bearing on decision on possible charges. By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — A grand jury will not look into the Trayvon Martin case, a special prosecutor said Monday, leaving the decision of whether to charge the teen’s shooter in her hands alone and eliminating the possibility of a first-degree murder charge. That prosecutor, Angela Corey, said her decision had no bearing on whether she would file charges against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who has

said he shot the unarmed black teen in self-defense. Corey could still decide to charge him with a serious felony such as manslaughter which can carry a lengthy prison sentence if he is convicted. A grand jury had been set to meet Tuesday in Sanford, about 20 miles northeast of Orlando. Corey has long had a reputation for not using grand juries if it wasn’t necessary. In Flor-

himself. That prosecutor, Norm Wolfinger, had originally called for the case to be presented before a grand jury. Prosecutors sometimes use grand juries to avoid the political fallout from controversial cases. But Corey was elected by voters more than 100 miles away in the Jacksonville area, so political problems are less of an issue for Corey, Hill said. Martin was killed Feb. 26 during a confrontation with Zimmerman in a gated community in Sanford. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense. An attorney for Martin’s parents said he is not surprised by the decision to avoid the grand jury and hopes a decision is reached soon.

Hudson jury picking begins

A potential juror in Chicago who works as a physical therapist says she watched “American Idol” during the year actress Jennifer Hudson appeared on the show. But she says that wouldn’t affect her ability to be fair to a defendant who’s accused of murdering Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. Jury selection began in earnest Monday in the trial of William Balfour. Among those retained in the jury pool for now is a junior high school teacher whose brother was a former Cook County’s state attorney. Out of the first dozen would-be jurors questioned Monday, the judge dismissed half.

ida, only first-degree murder cases require the use of grand juries. Corey’s decision means she doesn’t have to rely on potentially unpredictable jurors, said David Hill, an Orlando criminal defense attorney. “Let’s give her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she knows there isn’t enough for first-degree murder but she wants to maintain control and charge him with something else,” Hill said. “What does she need a grand jury for? She cuts out the unpredictability of the grand jury. She goes where she feels she has more evidence.” Corey took over the case last month after the prosecutor who normally handles cases out of Sanford recused

DES MOINES, Iowa — Mitt Romney faces a daunting to-do list as he transitions into the role of likely Republican presidential nominee. Among the tasks: Raise as much money as possible for the general election campaign against President Barack Obama. Hire more people and send them to the most critical states in the fall race. Hone his message to appeal to voters across the political spectrum. And do it all quickly while fending off challenges from GOP rivals who refuse to quit the primary race. Obama, with the advantages of an incumbent, is well ahead of Romney on

fundraising, organization and broad pitches to voters. So Romney can be expected to spend part of his time over the next three weeks trying to catch up. There’s a break in the primaries lasting until April 24, when several Northeastern states vote. Romney also must start thinking about a running mate and strategy to amass the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House on Nov. 6. “I do think the Romney team is thinking about how they put in place their fall campaign,” said Terry Nelson, a former top aide to President George W. Bush. “But they clearly have some contests to get through, so they won’t be able to turn their eyes entirely to that.” There’s little question that Romney will clinch the nomination in June, if not earlier. He has a wide lead in the race for the 1,144 delegates required to secure the GOP nomination. But chief rival Rick Santorum says he’ll press on

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran is signaling a possible compromise offer heading into critical talks with world powers deeply suspicious of its nuclear program -- offering to scale back uranium enrichment but not abandon the ability to make nuclear fuel. The proposal — floated by the country’s nuclear chief as part of the parrying before talks start Friday — suggested that sanctions-battered Iran is ready to bargain. But this gambit appeared to fall short of Western demands that Iran hand over its most potent nuclear material and ease a standoff that has rattled nerves and spooked markets with seesaw oil prices and threats of Israeli military strikes. “It is important for Iran to understand that the window is closing and that these talks are an opportunity,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday. “The decision rests with Iran.” The talks involving Iran and the five permanent U.N. Security Council nations plus Germany, to be held in Istanbul, are the first direct talks on Tehran’s nuclear program in more than 14 months. The dispute effectively boils down to one issue: Iran’s stated refusal to close down its uranium enrichment labs. The U.S. and its allies contend that the same sites that make fuel for reactors could also eventually churn out weapons-grade material. Iran has repeatedly insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. The ideas put forth late Sunday by the nuclear chief, Fereidoun Abbasi, are an attempt to at least acknowledge this huge divide. Abbasi said Tehran could eventually stop its production of the 20 percent enriched uranium needed for a research reactor, used for medical research and treatments. But, he added, Iran would continue enriching uranium to lower levels of about 3.5 percent for power generation. The framework addresses one key Western concern. The U.S. and others worry the higher-enriched uranium could be turned into warhead strength — more than 90 percent enriched — in a matter of months. Yet Abbasi also directly snubbed a demand backed by the U.S. and some other countries. They want Iran’s stockpile of 20 percent-enriched uranium to be transferred out of the country. Abbasi indicated that it would remain in Iran.

Mega Millions winner makes claim Maryland ticket buyer with share of $656 million prize will remain anonymous. By SARAH BRUMFIELD Associated Press

BALTIMORE — The holder of a winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Maryland claimed a share of the record-breaking $656 million prize on Monday, but will remain anonymous,

state lottery officials announced. The winner claimed the prize at lottery headquarters with a ticket matching all six numbers: 2-4-23-38-46 and the Mega Ball, 23, said Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett. The winner will remain anonymous, but officials will share some details at a news conference this morning, she said. Maryland does not require lottery winners to be identified.

Kodiak brown bear on the lam from refuge A 300-pound, 2-year-old female bruin escaped six days ago, officials say. By DAN JOLING Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Alaska wildlife center that takes in orphaned and injured animals is missing one of its larger residents. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center announced Monday that a 300-pound, 2-year-old female Kodiak brown bear escaped six days ago from its enclosure near Portage. The bear had been destined for a zoo in Sweden in early summer. The center is near Chugach National Forest land in the southernmost end of Anchorage, about 40 miles from downtown. The bear was last seen Tuesday night in mountains between the Portage and Placer valleys, the center said. A spokeswoman for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said the bear was not a public threat. “It’s not like an escaped murderer has gotten loose,” said Jessy Coltrane, the area biologist for Anchorage. “It’s just a bear in the woods in an area where we have lots of other bears.” The bear had been named Shaguyik, an Eskimo name for “ghost” or “shadow,” according to the center website. It’s the first time the center has had an escape, said executive director Mike Miller. “We had our electric fence turned off for maintenance and during that time, something spooked Shaguyik,” Miller said in the announcement. “Unfortu-

nately, this year’s heavy snow load required us to fix our electric fence and that’s when the incident occurred.” The bear climbed over the fence to escape, said center spokesman Ethan Tyler. The bear was found on its own in December 2010 on Kodiak Island at a season when most bears were denned up for the winter, according to the center’s website. She was flown to Anchorage for care. A veterinarian spayed her in November. She carries a microchip but is not wearing a collar and has no identifying tags. The nonprofit center is the custodian of the bear under a permit but it remains the possession of the state, Tyler said. The center is the permanent home of five bears. Shaguyik and another young bear were under the center’s care until they could be moved to a Swedish zoo in June.

Ciavarella incarcerated her after she pleaded guilty to harassment. In 2007, they told the Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia about their case, which was instrumental in bringing the suits against the former judges. Lawsuits against the judges allege Ciavarella and Conahan conspired to jail juveniles to increase profits at a privately run juvenile detention center. Ciavarella is serving 28 years in federal prison, while Conahan is serving 171⁄2 years. “You can trust the government if you speak out,” Laurene Transue said. “Things will get better.” Sheena Delazio, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 829-7235.

a few days ago that this started to affect me, as far as my feelings of security,” said Dawn Diehl, who’s studying for a master’s degree in library science. “So now it’s pretty alarming. We’ve never had an experience like this. I kind of have that feeling like, where’s this going to end?” Diehl was surprised Monday

to find all but one door to the main library locked and everyone’s bags being searched. Under new security measures, students and faculty will need a school ID to get into buildings. Non-residents won’t be permitted in dormitories, and a $50,000 reward is being offered for information.

Brian Graham, a fifth-year chemistry student, said the threats began as being written on walls in buildings, and he hoped security would be able to catch the perpetrator. But then threats started arriving by email. “I think it’s a little bit more nerve-racking,” Graham said of the latest wave.

OUR OPINION: SCANDAL FALLOUT

Kids-for-cash saga far from complete

I

F MOVIEMAKERS ever decide to put Luzerne County’s dastardly juvenile justice scandal on screen, the final scene probably will look a lot like what unfolded Monday afternoon in the courthouse. A smiling, grandfatherly type governor signs his name to new laws drafted in response to the misdeeds of two, corrupt county judges and their fat cat cronies, effectively signaling that the bad guys got what they deserve and no harm will again come to our children. The End. Except, this should not be the end of the kids-for-cash saga, not yet. Much remains to be done in the real world of Pennsylvania policy-setting and lawmaking – and regarding area residents’ ethical conduct – to rectify all the things that led up to the preposterous crime, first made public in January 2009. Only you and like-minded people, including angry moms and dads disgusted at the blatant misuse of power, can ensure those actions are taken in the months and years ahead. The good news: You have blueprints to follow and plenty of allies. A specially formed group called the Interbranch Commission on Juvenile Justice explored the scandal, gathering testimony from more than 60 people, and released a report in May 2010 with dozens of recommendations. Similarly, the Philadelphia-based Juvenile Law Center issued a string of suggested reforms. (Visit www.jlc.org and click on “Luzerne Kids-for-Cash Scandal.”) Kudos to state Sen. Lisa Bak-

er, R-Lehman Township, for quickly seizing on some of those ideas and spearheading a four-part package of bills. Thank you, also, to the many state lawmakers from this region and beyond who enthusiastically backed the bills with their votes. Stalled, however, is Senate Bill 816, which calls for the Office of Victim Advocate to represent and advocate for the interests of victims of juvenile crime. Also lagging, but expected to be finalized soon, is a proposed law that discourages court personnel from putting teenagers in shackles. Meanwhile, based on the recommendations issued nearly two years ago, several practices should be reviewed and probably adjusted within the state Department of Education, the Judicial Conduct Board, the court system and other realms dealing with juvenile crime. That means adults like you need to keep attention focused on these important matters and not let up. After all, the dirty judges’ wrongdoing became exposed thanks largely to an unwavering pursuit of justice on the part of certain youths’ parents. Only a similar passion will ensure that this shameful scenario reaches a fitting, if un-cinematic, conclusion.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “He loved being Mike Wallace. He loved the fact that if he showed up for an interview, it made people nervous.” Jeff Fager The CBS News chairman and “60 Minutes” executive producer reflected on the career of tenacious television journalist Mike Wallace, who died Saturday at 93. Wallace found motivation and energy in his pursuit of the truth, colleagues said.

and strip-searched. It took six days and another strip search before charges were dismissed and he was released from jail. Even without these nightmarish facts – which the court considered irrelevant – the 5-4 decision upholding the right of prison officers to strip-search anyone, for any reason, despite lack of serious charges, is a chilling affront to the Fourth Amendment that protects against unreasonable search and seizure. Both the cops in the case and the justices of the court should do another search – of their consciences and their reason. Philadelphia Daily News

udos to the members of the Luzerne County Council! Since the inception of the council I have contacted its members several times via email regarding matters such as the disposition of the former Hotel Sterling and, most recently, the county’s proposed ethics code. I never expected to receive any responses. At best, all I expected was an automatic email response saying something such as, “Thank you for your interest in county government.” But to my surprise I received personal and detailed responses. The replies ranged from agreement to disagreement, each detailing the council member’s thoughts. I greatly appreciated this discourse. It is so refreshing to know we have a government body in Luzerne County that not only solicits ideas from the citizens, but also listens to those thoughts, and responds very intelligently. Again, let me give praise to the council and hope that the citizenry of Luzerne County appreciates the work this fine group can and will do. Gary Zavacki Exeter

Part-time legislators could work for free

Liberty, dignity I stripped away

HE LONG, ROBED arm of the Supreme Court has overreached again, this time into a man’s underpants. The court last week ruled against a New Jersey man who had been strip-searched, after a traffic stop revealed that he had an unpaid fine – a fine that he had, in fact, paid. Albert Florence was a passenger in a car driven by his pregnant wife. The police stopped the car, and a check revealed that Florence had an outstanding civil fine. Despite the fact that he had a receipt for the payment in the car’s glove compartment, Florence was taken to jail

nstead of downsizing Pennsylvania’s Legislature, why not return it to the part-time body it used to be and should be? Back then, lawmakers didn’t have so much time to interfere with our lives. Hey, why not go with volunteer legislators like in New Hampshire? I guess that would put too many criminal defense lawyers out of a job. Oh, well. Tom McCarey Berwyn

Don’t take media bait in Martin shooting case

T

he truths of the incident are still unknown regarding the death of Trayvon Martin, yet so many people are quick to condemn, convict and sentence. First, the liberal media are to blame seemingly for intentionally race-baiting the public. They used a photo of Martin at age 13. He was 17, and though they probably had access to current photos, selected the more incendiary outdated photo to promote the innocence of a young adolescent. More obvious was their intentional choice of a 7-year-old, unrelated mug shot of George Zimmerman. None of us was at the scene of the incident and knows what occurred; but we’re

all being played the puppet fools by a media seemingly hellbent on inciting a racially inflammatory event. We need to gather our composure and view only the fully presented facts and not be swayed by explosive snippets and sound bites. Edward Frankavitz Wilkes-Barre

Local business applauded for observance of holiday

H

ats off to Beiter’s Home Center for its advertisement and its decision to close for three hours on Good Friday and all day on Easter Sunday to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Awesome! Glad to see that some people prefer to do the right thing rather than bow to the almighty dollar. It’s like the old days. Remember when stores were closed not only on holidays, but also every Sunday? Do you remember when life moved at a much slower pace? Before corruption and greed overtook us? It’s a shame that our children will never know a true Sunday, when everything was closed except church. Seems like everyone was much happier back then, when we took time to slow down and say thank you. It would be nice to move back in that direction and use a Sunday for what God intended. Thank you to Beiter’s for the memories. Special thank-you to Jesus. Patrick Perlowski Swoyersville

Animals were not meant to perform circus tricks

I

n Friday’s newspaper I read with a very heavy heart about the circus coming to Wilkes-Barre. When are people going to realize that animals are not our toys? These animals are taught to perform acts that are unnatural and even harmful to them. When was the last time you saw a tiger eager to find a high wire in the jungle just so he could balance on it? When have you seen an elephant in the wild balancing on his trunk, possibly damaging his spine and neck? I always thought humans were supposed to be the more intelligent of all the species. Well, the ones who protest these abom-

DOONESBURY

inations toward animals are the more intelligent. Go to the Elephant Sanctuary site, www.elephants.com, and you can read about how many years it takes for an elephant that was rescued from a circus to learn how to live and behave like an elephant is supposed to live. I urge you to boycott any circus that has performing animals in it. If the circus animals are so happy to be around their trainers, how about setting the animals free? If they truly love the circus atmosphere, then they’ll come back. But don’t hold your breath. Fran Berdy Wilkes-Barre

Penn State alumna backs candidate for trustee

P

enn State University has been facing unprecedented challenges; a substantial amount of work and sound leadership is needed to navigate these rough waters and to maximize the valuable contributions that Penn Staters make in academics, social science, clinical research, the arts, agriculture, technology, athletics and numerous other disciplines. Electing the next members of the university’s Board of Trustees is an issue that has far-reaching implications, and with Penn State alumni numbering more than 555,000 worldwide, it is a privilege that many of The Times Leader’s readers can choose. Dues-paying alumni association members or alumni benefactors automatically will receive an electronic ballot on April 10 to be submitted on or before May 3. However, anyone with a Penn State degree can request a ballot at BOT@psu.edu. I enthusiastically endorse Rich Bundy (Orrin R. Bundy III) for trustee. I’ve known Rich for 31 years. As a Penn State Blue Band alumna, I can attest to the Penn State love and loyalty that was modeled in the Bundy home and nurtured in Rich from his earliest days. Not only is Rich’s dedication to Penn State’s mission clear, but he has 20 years of unparalleled practical experience in higher education administration. At Penn State, Rich was assistant director of annual giving. Currently he is vice president for development and alumni relations at the University of Vermont. He provided leadership to Iowa State’s eight-year comprehensive fundraising campaign and he was a major gifts officer at Michigan State.

investing in stabilizing the structure for possible future preservation. The manager strongly advised against this option, saying the investment would drain at least $6 million from the business loan fund. The $6 million estimate was provided two years ago and “could only escalate” due to roof and weather damage since then, he wrote. “Such a commitment would significantly reduce the funds available for other, more immediately productive, loan activity,” he wrote. Lawton said he toured the inside of the Sterling on April 5 and saw conditions that would make stabilization a “hazardous undertaking.” He also saw structural problems “conducive to imminent, local collapse.” Assessing structural integrity is challenging because most of the building’s critical floor support systems are encased in cement or concrete. Extensive, costly testing of these systems would be necessary before designing a stabilization project, he wrote. His recommendation will be discussed at tonight’s council

COUNTY MANAGER POSTS CONTRACTS Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton has started posting copies of contracts he’s approved on the county website, www.luzernecounty.org. Lawton said he would release documents to keep the public informed

CityVest is out of funds and expected to file for bankruptcy if the county doesn’t agree to take over the project.

The city would then be entitled to the first lien position to recoup demolition costs at resale, he said.

Leighton disappointed Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton said he’s “somewhat disappointed” in the recommendation. “I just hope we still can have some dialogue relative to it. The building still has to come down,” he said. Leighton said the county has access to $1 million for demolition, but the city does not. “Nor do I think we’d have the

The city had refused to waive an estimated $50,000 in permit fees to demolish the Sterling -one of the holdups in an agreement between the city, county and CityVest needed to proceed with demolition design.

TELEVISED MEETING The meeting will be broadcast live on Service Electric Cable’s Channel 19. The television station spent more than $12,000 on equipment to broadcast two council meetings per month as a public service, said Scott Cannon, of Video Innovations, which was hired by Service Electric to handle the broadcast.

The Sterling Hotel is seen Thursday. Officials are worried the Council members react Several council members say they agree with Lawton’s recommendation. Council Chairman Jim Bobeck said it would be a “bad financial bet” for the county to fund the lion’s share of demolition. The city had agreed to provide about $250,000 in state gaming funds toward demolition. “The county’s made far too many bad bets in the past,” Bobeck said. Councilwoman Elaine Maddon Curry said she will “strongly consider” walking away. “The tragedy of the Hotel Sterling is that apparently you can spend $6 million of taxpayer money and still utterly destroy a

historic building,” she said. Council Vice Chairwoman Linda McClosky Houck said she’s concerned the county’s strapped general fund will be tapped to cover unexpected costs related to the property, and there’s no expectation the county will recoup more than the demolition expenses. “I don’t think it’s the county’s problem, but it will be if we take it over,” she said. The county is loaded with properties that could use county funding, including many flooddamaged structures, said Councilman Edward Brominski. The county shouldn’t provide special assistance bailing out one, he said.

Councilman Rick Morelli said he supports not using county funding for the project but believes county officials should still stay involved in discussing other options. Councilman Harry Haas, who wants to see the building preserved, said he won’t agree to spend a cent on demolition and believes Lawton’s option is the best because it will “buy more time” for the building to stay standing. Councilman Rick Williams said he hopes government leaders can work out a solution. “My hope is that we don’t have encumbered traffic patterns for a long time or the eyesore of the Sterling,” he said.

A news release from the city stated Rankin “did not comply with verbal commands and made (suspicious) movements. The suspect was subsequently shot by a Wilkes-Barre Police Officer.” It was not immediately known if investigators recovered a gun Rankin was allegedly carrying. “I know my child,” said Rankin’s mother, Mary Lee Lawson of Philadelphia in a telephone interview Monday afternoon. “I know he didn’t pull no gun on a police officer.” Lawson was traveling to Wilkes-Barre late Monday afternoon to learn more about why her son was shot. She said there was a confrontation involving another son, David, with residents in the same house over the weekend. “I’m upset the police shot my son,” Lawson said. “Why couldn’t they Taser him, especially since he was running away.” State police and the Luzerne County Detective Bureau are investigating because the shooting involved a city police officer. The officer has been placed on administrative paid leave.

If approved, the city will work with the Wilkes-Barre Parking Authority to seek a request for qualifications from potential bidders. McLaughlin said the city looked at other cities for comparisons. He said Indianapolis successfully leased its parking. Direct comparisons to other cities – such as Scranton locally – are difficult because the assets vary, McLaughlin said. Leighton said the $20 million upfront payment would be used for public safety, infrastructure improvements, economic development, abandoned property removal and restoration, as well as general government expenses. The successful bidder would also assume the city’s $7 million debt on the garages, he said.

State police look for evidence on Laurel Street in Wilkes-Barre on Monday morning after a WilkesBarre police officer shot a man fleeing an alleged home invasion.

The charge filed by WilkesBarre Township police said Rankin was found with 25 heroin packets inside his vehicle after he struck another vehicle in the Wyoming Valley Mall’s parking lot on July 22, 2006, according to the criminal complaint. On Monday, Laurel Street was closed from Kidder Street to Scott Street and about 50 yards of the sidewalk from Reyes Deli and Grocery Store at 366 Scott St. to 380 Scott St. Troopers with the Forensic Services Unit spent most of Monday searching the closed area. Virginia Swift, who lives in an apartment building at Scott and Laurel streets, said she found out about the shooting when she awoke at 6 a.m. to walk her dog. With the shooting taking place

outside her bedroom window, Swift said she is contemplating leaving Wilkes-Barre. “I’m definitely considering it when my lease is up to move away from Wilkes-Barre,” she said. “It has me nervous. I have a 5-year-old daughter. It definitely worries me.” Other recent home invasions in the area: • A West Pittston woman told police on March 19 that a man climbed through a window, assaulted her and stole prescription medications. • A man residing on Church Street, Hanover Township, said he was confronted by an armed man and tied up in his house on March 26. A second man entered the house as the two suspects stayed inside for about 90 min-

utes, stealing mostly electronics. They fled in the man’s Ford Focus, which was pursued by a Wilkes-Barre police officer into Monroe County. Police said the suspects in the stolen car shot at the pursuing officer. • Three men forced their way into an elderly couple’s residence on Pittston Boulevard, Bear Creek Township, Saturday morning. The couple were bound and blankets were placed over their heads. The three men were in the residence for about 90 minutes before stealing a Nissan Frontier, state police said. • Three men smashed a sliding glass door to an apartment on East Noble Street, Nanticoke, and fired multiple shots inside the apartment early Sunday morning.

“My goals are to add police officers to the street, fund infrastructure projects like street paving, and attack blighted properties that harm the integrity of our neighborhoods,” said Leighton, adding he believes the improvements would lift the tax base and entice people to move to the city. The mayor said that under any lease agreement, the vendor would assumeresponsibilityforoperation, maintenance, management and future development of the parking assets.

Wohlstetter also was retained by Hawkeye Security Solutions, the nonprofitcompanythathandlesthe city’s camera system. Council Chairman Mike Merritt did not attend the press conference, but the city provided a quote from him in support of the initiative. “This is a great opportunity to continueourefforttomakesureourresidents know we have enough police officers on the street and invest in projects that will build upon our current accomplishments and move our city forward,” Merritt said.

Cops: Okla. suspects confess to shootings

Men accused in spree that left three black people dead being held on $9M bail each. By JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS Associated Press

TULSA, Okla. — The explanation for a shooting rampage that terrorized Tulsa’s black neighborhood and left three people dead may lie in a killing that took place more than two years ago. Carl England, whose son is accused in the weekend shooting spree, was fatally shot in 2010 by a man who had threatened his daughter and tried to kick in the door of her home. The man was black, and police say England’s son may have been seeking vengeance when he and his roommate shot five black people last week. Police documents said the two suspects have both confessed. According to a police statement, 19-year-old Jake England admitted shooting three people and 32-year-old Alvin Watts confessed to shooting two. Also Monday, the two suspects appeared in court to have their bond set at $9.16 million each. Authorities have said they expect to charge the pair with three counts of first-degree murder and other crimes. Family and friends say Carl England’s death sent his son into a downward spiral. On Thursday, Jake England apparently wrote a Facebook post marking the second anniversary of his father’s death and lamented that “it’s hard not to go off.” Back in 2010, Carl England had responded to his daughter’s call for help and with her boyfriend tracked down the man who tried to break in. A fight broke out, and the man took out a gun and fired at England. The man who pulled the trigger, Pernell Jefferson, was not charged with homicide because an investigation determined he acted in self-defense.

Jefferson was charged with attempted burglary and a weapons violation and had his probation revoked in an unrelated weapons case for which he is serving a six-year sentence. He is scheduled to be tried in May on the burglary charge. According to an affidavit, Jefferson tried to kick in the door of the apartment England’s daughter shared with her boyfriend after the boyfriend hit him with a baseball bat during an earlier confrontation at the couple’s home. When Carl England and the boyfriend found Jefferson, Jefferson came at England, who hit Jefferson with a stick. Jefferson fell to the ground, pulled out a handgun and fatally shot the elder England. Jefferson fled but was arrested after seeking treatment for his injuries at a hospital. Watts’ brother, Gene, told the Tulsa World that Watts moved in with England after his father died to help him rebuild his life and deal with his anger, which seemed to be racially focused. “I’ve never known my brother to be no racist or anything like that,” Gene Watts said. “I know he was going through a little bit of depression problems, but other than that, he’s got in little scuffles before, but he’s never went off and done this.” Alicia Houston, who lives near the roommates, told the newspaper she has known England since he was a child and “from the time his father died, that boy has been somebody else.” She said England needed therapy “from the beginning” but didn’t receive it. He was taking medication for depression, she said. The January suicide of England’s fiancée, only months after she gave birth to their son, made matters worse. Sheran Hart Wilde died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head on Jan. 10, according to the state medical examiner’s office. All those killed in the spree were apparently random targets.

Saints’ appeals rejected by Goodell By By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — Sean Payton now knows for certain he won’t be coaching in 2012. And the New Orleans Saints must figure out whether Bill Parcells or someone else is best suited to take over a team seeking its fourth straight trip to the playoffs. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday rejected the Saints’ appeals of their unprecedented punishment

stemming from the league’s investigation of the club’s bounty system. The program offered cash bonuses for big hits that knocked targeted opponents out of games Payton or hurt them enough that they required help getting to the sideline. In addition to upholding Payton’s suspension, which begins next Monday

and runs through the Super Bowl — in New Orleans next season — Goodell also upheld suspensions of eight games for general manager Mickey Loomis and six games for assistant head coach Joe Vitt, along with a $500,000 fine for the franchise and the loss of secondround draft picks this year and next. Loomis, who declined comment Monday, and Vitt begin their suspensions after the preseason ends. The Saints case represents perhaps the starkest example yet of the sea

change that the NFL has undergone since medical research and media reports on the long-term damage suffered by football players through concussions began to gain attention a few years ago.

Phils’ bats stay silent at start of season

By PAUL SOKOLOSKI psokoloski@timesleader.com

PHILADELPHIA - With a towel draped over his head, slugger Ryan Howard appeared to be in disguise as he headed toward his locker. Without him and Chase Utley, it’s also hard to recognize the Philadelphia Phillies lineup anymore. Instead of depending on a potent middle of the batting order that powered the team’s run of five consecutive National League East titles, the Phillies were forced to rely on the first major league hit by Freddy Galvis for their only runs Monday in a 6-2 loss to the newly-renamed Miami Marlins. That was good news for Galvis, who went 0-for-12 as the replacement at second base for the injured Utley and his knee problems before a two-run double in the seventh inning gave Galvis his first hit and first RBIs as a Phillie.

three games, and are averaging just two runs per game out of the gates. "I want to go out and score10 runs, who wouldn’t?" said Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino. "(But) four games in, there’s no reason to sit here in a state of panic. I’ve got 12 at-bats. I’m going to have 600 during the season. Everybody’s in a state of panic because we don’t have the big boys." He’s talking about RBI guys Utley and first baseman Howard, who make up the right side of Philadelphia’s infield and the Nos. 3 and 4 spots in the batting order. Both opened the season on the disabled list, as Utley is bothered by chondromalacia in his knee and Howard’s been limited to light workouts as he tries to recover from offseason surgery on his left Achilles tendon. "It was good to see him," Phillies

"As soon as I got to second, I felt much better," Galvis said. But the Phillies offense is still sneezing. A disappointed crowd of 45,574 watched quietly at Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies lost their home opener for the first time in three years. That was the third consecutive loss for the Phillies after Roy Halladay pitched eight shutout innings in a season-opening 1-0 victory Thursday. Since then, the Phillies have scored just seven runs in See PHILLIES, Page 5B

popular figures on the PGA Tour. In the buttoned-up sport of golf, Watson is different. He hits the ball a mile, rarely in a straight line to where he’s trying to get. His driver is pink from the shaft to the head. When he’s not on the course, he is posting videos of his crazy stunts on Twitter. His dream purchase was the “General Lee 01,” the original car in the TV series “The Dukes of Hazard.” And now he is the Masters champion. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are the top two stars of their generation. Rory McIlroy is right behind them, carving his own niche around the world

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Bubba Watson had reason to feel like a rock star. His playoff win at the Masters on the second extra hole stretched into early evening, and when he finally slipped on the green jacket during the trophy presentation, the flashes from so many cameras danced across his face like strobe lights. “I’m not ready for fame,” Watson said. “I don’t really want to be famous or anything like that. I just want to be me and play golf.” He might not have a choice. His style of play — “Bubba golf” is what he likes to call it — already made him one of the See BUBBA, Page 5B

A need to get going before it’s too late

Tunkhannock star hurls two-hitter in win over Mountaineers.

DALLAS – Jamie Hampsey reeled through the Dallas lineup so conventionally, so quickly not even her future college coach noticed the potential no-hit affair. “Are you serious?” University of Scranton softball coach Mia Collarini noted, as her upcoming recruit moved within five outs of TUNKHANNOCK a clean sheet. “She hasn’t given up a hit?” DALLAS Jamie Hampsey was sure to impress. The Tunkhannock senior flirted with a nohitter until a softly hit grounder in the sixth inning ended her campaign. Her effort Monday enabled the Tigers to a 7-0 victory over Mountaineers. “It was an outstanding effort,” Tunkhannock coach John Keefe. “We had another excellent performance by Jamie. But we were benefited by a lot of girls who hit the ball well today.” The Tunkhannock righty’s bid came to a halt when Dallas leadoff hitter Taylor Kelley made contact with a ball that abruptly stopped between the pitcher’s mound and third base. Two batters later, Katy Comitz lined up the middle for the Mountaineers’ only other hit of the game. “I’m glad to see them get the second hit,” Keefe said. “Because I’d hate to see that little bloop be the only hit.” Despite a limited strike zone and windy conditions, it proved to be one of Jamie Hampsey’s finer outings against a very good Dallas (1-2 WVC) squad. She struck out 12 batters and walked only one batter through seven innings.

PAUL SOKOLOSKI

hey insist there is no cause for concern, no reason to worry, no sense of alarm. Then why are sirens going off when the Philadelphia Phillies start swinging the bats? They couldn’t score again Monday, when even a home opener in front of a 205th consecutive sellout crowd at Citizens Bank Park wasn’t enough to inspire much offense from the softswinging Phillies. They managed just two runs during a 6-2 loss to the Miami Marlins. But that’s about average for the Phillies, who have scored just eight runs through their first four games. "I’ve been on teams like this where you don’t hit early, you just get it late and start hitting," Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre said. "I have faith and confidence. It’ll come around." But when? Tomorrow? Next week? Next month? "Everybody’s trying to find answers for what’s going on," Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino said. From the moment they realized their top run-producers Chase Utley and Ryan Howard were going on the disabled list to open the 2012 season, the Phillies knew it was going to be a struggle to score. They just didn’t think they’d have to scrap this much. "I don’t care what we’ve got," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said, "give them to me, I’ll work with them." What the Phillies have right now is a problem. They’re stacked with one of the premier pitching rotations in baseball, with Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels all capable of shutting down opponents each time they take the mound. But they can’t win if they can’t score. Halladay opened the season by shutting out Pittsburgh in a 1-0 victory Thursday. And the Phillies haven’t won since. They lost a 2-1 game in extra innings, when Lee pitched brilliantly. They blew a four-run lead in Pittsburgh and lost 5-4 Sunday. And they were beaten 6-2 by Miami on Monday in a game where Hamels had nine strikeouts but surrendered four runs. "The motto we’ve always had was being the ‘Fightin’ Phils,’” Hamels said. "We’ve just got to keep fighting and good things will happen." Fightin’ Phils? More like ‘Flailin’ Phils. They got a mini-rally started in the bottom of the seventh inning Monday, when Utley’s sub - a kid infielder named Freddy Galvis - delivered a two-run double for his first hit and first RBI in the big leagues. That cut the Phillies deficit to 5-2. And that was the last baserunner the Phillies got. "When you’re not getting hits," Manuel said, "the game’s not too much fun." Instead, the Phillies turned it into funny follies. When Hamels fielded a soft chopper and fired it to first base in the sixth inning, nobody was there to field his throw. The single and twobase error turned into a run for the Marlins, and only added to Philadelphia’s frustration. Because every error, every mistake pitch, every wrong step gets magnified as the pressure mounts to play perfect defense when scoring runs becomes such a struggle. "That’s another part we need to start focusing on," Victorino said, "don’t give the other team extra outs. Right now, it’s kind of like a snowball. Things are rolling down the hill."

Fearless Diablo looks to go a perfect two-for-two with another win in tonight’s second leg of the Bobby Weiss Series. Last week the Dylan Davis trainee was dead game in fending off a pesky Ideal Champ, to win in a solid1:52.4. This evening the four-year old son of Art Major is going to need that and maybe a little more drawing outside of that same rival. But with his ability to win on or off the pace, I look for red-hot driver Jim Morrill to have Fearless Diablo in the right position when it matters and once again hand defeat to Ideal Champ in that what should be a barn-burner of a tenth race! BEST BET: FEARLESS DIABLO (10TH) VALUE PLAY: MARIAN’S MAN (6TH)

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Yankees top Orioles for 1st win of season The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — The New York Yankees finally won their first game of the season, using four hits by Derek Jeter and an effective pitching performance by Ivan Nova to defeat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Monday night. Andruw Jones homered for the Yankees, who averted the fourth 0-4 start in franchise history — the first since 1973. New York began the season by losing three straight to Tampa Bay. Matt Wieters went 4 for 4 with a homer for the Orioles, who were coming off a seasonopening, three-game sweep of Minnesota. Jeter singled and scored in the first inning, singled in the third, hit an RBI double in a three-run fourth, sacrificed in the sixth and singled in the eighth to cap a 4-for-4 night. He came in batting .231 with no runs and no RBIs.

CLEVELAND — Chris Sale won his first career start, limiting Cleveland to one run in 6 2-3 innings and leading the Chicago White Sox to a win over the Indians.

The left-hander, who had made 79 relief appearances, took a onehit shutout into the sixth. In his longest outing, Sale allowed three hits and struck out five. Red Sox 4, Blue Jays 2

Red Sox ready to celebrate Fenway’s 100th By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Fenway Park is ready for its 100th birthday and the Boston Red Sox are planning a big party. After a decade of renovations to the majors’ oldest ballpark, the team has put on some finishing touches to get it ready for this season. The home opener is Friday, and a week later the Red Sox will celebrate the anniversary of Fenway’s opening on April 20, 1912, when they play the New York Yankees. The festivities started on Monday, when the Harvard baseball team took batting and fielding practice to mark the 100th anniversary of their 1912 exhibition game against the Red Sox — the first game played at Fenway. Harvard and Red Sox alum Mike Stenhouse pitched batting practice. “Harvard baseball is thrilled to be included in the birthday celebration at Fenway Park,” Crimson baseball coach Joe Walsh said. “Our guys look forward to

any chance to set foot on a major league baseball diamond — in this case a batting practice session where many will take aim at the Green Monster. These are special moments that all young baseball players dream about and Harvard has been fortunate to have these opportunities every few years.” Although past years’ offseason renovations included visible and popular additions such as the Monster Seats and new concourses, this year’s work was designed to put the finishing touches on a decade of work. Among the additions: —A patio of inscribed bricks purchased by fans. More than 18,500 were sold. Also featured are 35 handprints from “influential figures in Red Sox and Fenway Park history,” including Bobby Doerr, Dennis Eckersley, Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice and Carl Yastrzemski. —Plaques around the park explaining points of interest, such as “Canvas Alley” and the Red Sox clubhouse.

The highlight: a collection of baseballs autographed by the World Series teams from every season since 1920 (one is missing). It was loaned to the team by a donor who has chosen to remain anonymous.

Also Monday, the team gave Mayor Tom Menino a tour. Because Menino was in a walking boot, he was driven around by Red Sox president Larry Lucchino in the bullpen cart that was used from 1968-78 to bring relievers into the game. The cart was restored and will be displayed as part of the ballpark’s “Living Museum” theme.

Gold medalist diver Lenzi dies at 43

Crestwood walks off a winner in eight

The Associated Press

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Mark Lenzi struck gold when he switched from wrestling to diving in the mid-1980s. Over the next decade, he became the 1992 Olympic 3-meter springboard champion, earned a bronze medal four years later in Atlanta and became the first driver to score 100 points on a single dive. On Monday, Lenzi, the last American male diver to win Olympic gold, died at the age of 43 in Greenville, N.C. Lenzi’s alma mater, Indiana

University, posted the announcement on its web site but did not provide a cause of death. His mother, Ellie, Lenzi told the family’s hometown newspaper, The Free Lance-Star of Fredricksburg, Va., that Lenzi had been hospitalized the past two weeks because of fainting spells that were caused by low blood pressure. “Mark came from a wrestling

background and the goal of any wrestler is to pin you,” former Olympic teammate and current Texas diving coach Matt Scoggin told USA Diving. “When Mark got into a contest, he was going to pin you. I remember before his first World Cup, he was going to win 1-meter, I thought there was no way — it was my third World Cup and I was still trying to get on the podium. He won. He was a very confident competitor.” It almost didn’t happen. Lenzi was wrestling in high school when he was suddenly captivated by Greg Louganis’ re-

markable Olympics performance in 1984. Lenzi quickly changed sports and dove right into his new passion. In 1989, he swept the Big Ten titles in the 1-meter, 3-meter and platform competitions, then went on to win the first of his back-to-back 1-meter national championships in ‘89. He was selected the NCAA’s diver of the year in 1989 and 1990. But Lenzi was just beginning to emerge on the international stage. His victory on the 3-meter board at the Barcelona Olympics

gave the Americans their third straight title in that event. Four years later, following a brief retirement, Lenzi earned an Olympic bronze medal. No American male diver has won an Olympic diving medal since Lenzi in ‘96. “Mark grabbed onto a dream,” Scoggin said. “He wasn’t going to believe anything was impossible. It was amazing how rapidly he became an Olympic champion.” Lenzi’s impressive resume includes 18 international springboard championships.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Trent Johnson has been hired as TCU’s new basketball coach. Johnson replaces Jim Christian and will lead the Frogs into the Big 12 Conference next season. Johnson’s introduction Monday came a day after he resigned from LSU, where he spent the past four seasons. He has a 226-185 career record, having taken Stanford and Nevada to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament before going to LSU. Christian, who had been at TCU the past four seasons, is taking the open job at Ohio University. He returned to the MidAmerican Conference, where he was Kent State’s coach and had six 20-win seasons before going to Fort Worth.

BUBBA Continued from Page 1B

Javelin thrower Zack is starting to earn recognition with strong showings. Aaron Zack is a plebe at the Naval Academy but he’s already made a name for himself with the men’s outdoor track team. Zack (Crestwood) has competed in the javelin in four meets thus far this spring. He finished third in his first meet (184-2) at the Point Loma Open in San Diego, Calif. and then finished third (185-7) in a five-team meet in Annapolis, Md. He recorded his first collegiate victory when he captured the javelin at the Maryland Invitational with a personal best toss of 190 feet. Last weekend, Zack finished third (189-08) to help the Midshipmen edge Army 102 ½-100 ½ in the annual Star Meet. “Zack’s on pace to qualify for the IC4A meet and could score at the Patriot League Championships,” throws coach Chris Campbell said. “He is a very hard worker and he is very dedicated.” Zack, whose senior brother Gary is a standout thrower for Moravian College, didn’t get into the Academy after high school so he went to Wilkes for a year. He got good grades and then got picked to go to the Academy this year. “Aaron is very knowledgeable about the javelin and I’m sure his older brother is a role model for him,” Campbell said. “He’s a great kid and I think he is going to do great things. He’s just a plebe (freshman) right now but next year with youngster (sophomore) legs underneath him, he should throw even farther.” DUO HELPS PANTHERS – Sophomore Matt Wotherspoon (Crestwood) and junior Sam Parente (Pittston and Lackawanna College) are having solid seasons with the Pittsburgh baseball team. Wotherspoon, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound right-hander, has made eight starts for the Panthers and is 2-1 with a 5.56 earned run average. He’s worked 45 1⁄3 innings and given up 44 hits and 33 runs, 28 earned. He’s walked 23 and leads the team with 48 strikeouts. Wotherspoon had his best game to date when he pitched a nine-inning complete game in a 3-1 triumph over Michigan State. He gave up seven hits and an earned run with two walks and a career-high 13 strikeouts. “Matt has done a great job,” coach Joe Jordano said. “Pitching on the weekend is a major accomplishment, especially for a sophomore. He has transitioned well and works very hard. He has a bright future and is a great young man.” After a slow start, Parente is hitting .371 (23-for-62) with four doubles, eight RBI and 11 runs scored. “Sam is starting to heat up,” Jordano said. “We initially had him at first base and now have him at third base and he continues to develop defensively and he is swinging the bat well. Sam is a tough player and a solid addition to our team.” The Panthers are 14-15 overall and 2-7 in the Big East Conference. DOUBLE DUTY FOR RAVA – Sophomore Kacee Rava (Coughlin) is doing the job at the plate and on the mound for the Baptist Bible softball team. Rava, also a standout basketball player for the Defenders, is hitting .390 (23-for-59) with eight doubles, a triple, three home runs and 21 RBI. She’s scored 14 runs. On the mound, she’s 5-7 with a save and has a 3.21 earned run average. She’s worked 76.1 innings and given up 94 hits and 52 runs, 35 earned. She’s walked 22 and struck out 35. “Kacee is a great athlete and going to a small school like ours allows her to showcase

Aaron Zack, a javelin thrower for the Naval Academy has finished in the top three in all four events he’s participated in this season.

ON CAMPUS BILL ARSENAULT those abilities a bit more than if she were at a place where she could only play one sport,” softball coach Bill Higley said. The coach feels that Rava has improved in every aspect of her game. “We changed her swing and approach at the plate and she has become a much better contact hitter,” Higley said. “As for her pitching, she is starting to develop more off-speed pitches and, most importantly, has the confidence to throw them in any situation.” The Defenders are 12-10 but have suffered some tough losses, especially with Rava on the mound. When not pitching, she’s playing second base – a position she has never played before. “It’s been a learning curve for her but her self-sacrifice and determination to play well there has been a great example of leadership to her teammates,” Higley said. “She is a fierce competitor but she is also the one leading the team in all the fun things.” FRITZGES SOLID ON THE COURT – Junior Eric Fritzges (Dallas) is having a good spring playing with the Elizabethtown men’s tennis team. Fritzges is 7-4 at No. 3 singles and 8-3 at No. 2 doubles. He won both in 9-0 victories over Messiah and Stevenson and won his singles match in a 6-3 loss to Division I La Salle. “Eric’s game has matured a great deal over the last two years,” coach Matt Helsel said. “He can grind out a point if needed, or he can switch to offense when the opportunities arise. He is tireless from the baseline and can rally with anyone.” The coach feels that Fritzges backhand and net game have dramatically improved to make him a well-rounded player with various weapons. “Just as Eric’s game has developed, so have his leadership skills,” Helsel said. “He takes an active interest in helping teammates at practice and rooting for them during matches. He is a vital asset to our school and our program, both on and off the court.” FROSH DUO AT HOOD – Freshmen Jackie Yurchak and Alison Schuetz, teammates at Hazleton Area last season, are members of the Hood softball team. The versatile Yurchak has caught and played shortstop and left field for the young Blazers who are 7-20 under first-year coach Terry Burdette. Yurchak is hitting just .172 (11-for-64) but had three hits in a recent 6-2 loss to Wesley. “Jackie was one of our recruited freshmen and has been a vital part of our team this year,” Burdette said. “Her versatility defensively has been a real strength. Her hitting has steadily improved and I expect her to continue to develop as a power hitter.” Burdette didn’t recruit

Schuetz. In fact, she wasn’t planning to play softball. “We lost a pitcher due to health issues and were down to just two pitchers,” Burdette said. “Jackie told me that her high school and travel ball teammate was already at Hood, I began talking to Alison about playing for us.” Since joining the team, Schuetz has pitched in eight games with five starts and has a 1-4 record and a 5.07 earned run average. She had here best effort with a complete-game, seven-inning performance in a 6-1 triumph over Wesley. She gave up just four hits. “During the Wesley game, the ump asked me between innings where I got this pitcher,” Burdette said. “I told I got her from the math department. Alison has the potential to be a very strong pitcher.” CHRISMER HELPING BULLDOGS – Junior Derek Chrismer (Crestwood) is batting .324 (22-for-68) for the DeSales baseball team. He has six doubles, 12 RBI, 10 runs scored and has stolen six bases in six attempts. “Derek is a key member and leader on the ball club,” coach Tim Neiman said. “He has been slow to recover from off-season surgery but still contributes at the plate and defensively when called upon. He’s a clutch player in the middle of the lineup and definitely a guy you want at the plate with the game on the line.” The Badgers, 15-8 overall and 9-1 in the Freedom Conference, are also getting pitching help from freshman Tyler Soboleski (Berwick). The left-hander has pitched in two games and worked three innings, giving up three hits and a run. “Tyler continues to make strides adjusting to the college game,” Neiman said. “Tyler will make an impact on the staff as the season progresses and play a key role in the future.” MEDVECKY FITTING IN – Freshman John Medvecky (Hazleton Area) has played in 18 games and started 12 for the Albright baseball team. The 6-foot, 175-pound infielder is hitting .263 (10-fof-38) with two doubles, four RBI and eight runs scored. In the field, he has made three errors on 42 chances (.929). “John has been a pleasant surprise,” coach Jeff Feiler said. “He has proven to be a very solid defensive third baseman. He’s a hard-nosed kid who isn’t afraid to put his body in front of the ball to knock it down and make the play. Offensively, he is doing a nice job making adjustments in order to be more successful against collegiate pitching. His bat has started to become a little more consistent in the last few weeks.” The Lions are 10-15 overall and 3-4 in the Commonwealth Conference.

as a U.S. Open champion with the rawest skill of any player in his 20s. And now there is Bubba, on a first-name basis everywhere he goes. Perhaps it was only fitting that during his victory speech Sunday he found one downside to winning the Masters. He has been in the members’ locker room since he first showed up at Augusta National in 2008 and couldn’t break 70. The next time he drives down Magnolia Lane, he will walk through a different door, up the stairs to the locker room reserved for champions. “I heard now that I leave the locker room,” Watson said. “It’s going to be sad. I’ve been there for four years. I know all the guys. They treat me real well. So, sorry.” It’s time to move on, and move up. Watson, with his fourth career win in his last 51 starts, is now No. 4 in the world, which makes him the highest-ranked American. He is virtually a lock to be at Medinah for another Ryder Cup. It was the second time in the last six majors that Watson has been in a playoff, losing to Martin Kaymer at the 2010 PGA Championship. He has earned more than $3 million in each of the last two seasons and played in his first Ryder Cup. How much better can he be? “Major champion ... I mean, can’t do any better than this,” he said. “I’ve won four times and won a major. Who knows? That’s the best part about history. We don’t know what’s going to happen. We don’t know the future. We don’t know anything. Hopefully, I keep crying. Hopefully, I keep having the passion to play golf and keep doing what I’m doing.” Watson showed his emotions at the start of the week. Stopped under the oak tree after a practice round, someone asked him what it would mean to win, and he brought up the adoption of his first son, Caleb, two weeks ago. Watson got so choked up he walked away. Winning the Masters? He was uncontrollable.

The returns of Howard and Utley, whenever they come back, should help stop the slide. But the Phillies can’t wait for that, or they may be buried by an avalanche of despair. They need to run and bunt and scratch out runs any way they can, the way they talked about doing through spring training.

SAINTS Continued from Page 1B

Saints case by handing out stern penalties. Former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who left the Saints after last season to join the St. Louis Rams, ran the bounty program and has been suspended indefinitely. He did not appeal. Goodell said in a statement if Payton, Loomis and Vitt “embrace the opportunity and participate in a constructive way,” he would consider reducing the financial penalties on them. While none of them has been fined, each will lose significant amounts while not being paid their salaries during the suspensions. Goodell also “would consider whether there are factors that would support modifying the forfeiture of the team’s 2013 second-round draft choice.” The commissioner’s latest decision could open the way for the Saints to coax Parcells — Payton’s mentor since their days together in Dallas — out of retirement. Parcells, a Hall of Fame finalist who turns 71 in August, has said he would consider coaching the Saints if asked to help his for-

TUESDAY, APRIL 10, 2012 PAGE 5B He sobbed on the shoulder of his mother, Molly. He hugged everyone he could find — caddie Ted Scott, his trainer and players who stuck around to see him go two extra holes for a green jacket, such as Ben Crane, Aaron Baddeley and Rickie Fowler. Watson is a self-described goof, yet he looked more determined than ever at the Masters. Sunday at Augusta was a supreme test. He started three shots out of the lead, and two holes into the final round, he watched Louis Oosthuizen make an albatross on the par-5 second hole with a 4-iron that landed on the front of the green and rolled some 90 feet into the cup for a 2. That put him four shots behind, though Watson knew he could make up ground, and he was right. The turning point came after his bogey on the par-3 12th, when mud on his ball sent his putt behind the green off line and some 6 feet by the hole. Watson ran off four straight birdies, all of them impressive — a 9-iron for his second shot on the par-5 13th for a two-putt birdie, a sand wedge to 5 feet on the 14th, another massive drive for a 7-iron onto the green at the par-5 15th and an 8-iron to 4 feet at the 16th. Still, this Masters will be remembered for two wild shots in the playoff. One was an accident. The other was on purpose. After he and Oosthuizen each missed birdie chances on the 18th in a playoff, Watson pulled his drive into the trees to the right of the 10th fairway. When he saw his ball deep in the woods, he immediately pictured the shot in his head. Not many others could have seen it. He used the crowd as a line for how he wanted to start the gap wedge from 155 yards — straight to the fairway, low enough to stay under a large limb and then a wild hook toward the green. “Hooked it about 40 yards, hit about 15 feet off the ground until it got under the tree and then started rising,” he said. “Pretty easy.” It set up a two-putt par from 10 feet, enough for the win when Oosthuizen chipped 12 feet by the hole and two-putted for bogey.

manager Charlie Manuel said of his slugging first baseman. "But I couldn’t put him in the lineup." If only. Instead, all the big hits are coming from the other side. Miami’s Omar Infante belted the first of his two homers off Phillies starter Cole Hamels who also surrendered a both a run-scoring single and RBI double to cleanup man Gaby Sanchez before departing in the sixth inning with the Phillies down 4-0. Infante later added another solo homer off reliever Joe Savery in the seventh inning, and Austin Kearns deposited the first pitch new Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon threw at Citizens Bank Park deep over the left field wall in the ninth inning. "I felt like I made some very good pitches," Hamels said. "Unfortunately, there were a few pitches that got away." The Phillies didn’t exactly make things go their way. They left Jimmy Rollins standing at second base twice and Hunter Pence died there once over the first six innings as the Phillies couldn’t come up with a clutch hit. In fact, they had just three hits over the first six innings, until a mini-rally in the bottom of the seventh. Victorino and John Mayberry Jr. began the inning with singles, and after Carlos Ruiz reached on a fielder’s choice, Galvis drove his two-run double into the left-center field gap. "To see him get that hit in that situation was very big," Victorino said. Only for a fleeting moment, though. Galvis’ blast finished Marlins starter Anibal Sanchez, and three Miami relievers retired the final eight Phillies in order to close out the Marlins’ second victory of the season. "We haven’t been scoring runs," said Manuel, after his Phillies fell to 1-3 at the season’s start. "We’re four games in and the bottom line is we haven’t been hitting the ball hard enough to score runs. We’ve definitely got to move the ball a little bit better than that."

"We’ve talked about playing without the big boppers and playing small ball," Victorino said. "Which way are we going to approach this game?" The approach the Phillies took in their home opener was appalling to Phillies fans. The Phillies managed just six hits against the Marlins. Three of those came in a two-run seventh inning. None came while the Phillies final eight batters were going down in order. "We haven’t been hitting the ball good," Manuel said. "Can we? We’ll find out."

You won’t find a hint of self-doubt in the Phillies, even after dropping to 1-3 by losing their third straight game and first home opener since 2009. "It’s four games in. There’s no reason to sit here in a state of panic," Victorino said. "It’s a long season," Mayberry Jr. said. If the Phillies don’t figure out how to start producing runs, it could be a longer road back to the top.

mer protege. Payton and Loomis played golf with the former NFL coach during NFL meetings in south Florida last month to talk to him about the team’s predicament. Payton’s suspension was supposed to begin April 1, but he was allowed to continue working while his appeal was pending, delaying plans to select an interim coach. If the Saints decide to hire an interim coach from outside the organization, as would be the case with Parcells, the club also would have to interview a minority candidate to comply with the NFL’s “Rooney Rule.” Parcells, who won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants and took the New England Patriots to a Super Bowl, has not coached since retiring from the Cowboys after the 2006 season, though he then worked in Miami’s front office. The Saints also could decide to promote from within the current staff. There are three strong candidates among Saints assistants to take over as interim coach: offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and offensive line coach Aaron Kromer. Payton expressed confidence in the abilities of his assistants to compensate for his absence, but also

has voiced some misgivings about saddling those coaches with additional responsibilities. Vitt also could be a candidate to step in, as he did briefly last season when Payton broke his leg, once his suspension ends. Loomis will be able to oversee the draft and handle other roster moves. When the preseason concludes, he will serve his suspension for failing to put a stop to the bounty system in a timely way. With all the uncertainty, Payton had been working long hours at the Saints’ suburban New Orleans headquarters trying to cram as much planning for 2012 into whatever time he had left. Payton has said he laid out plans for the offseason training program and the beginning of training camp, up until the Saints play Arizona in the Hall of Fame game Aug. 5 in Canton, Ohio. The NFL has said Williams’ bounty system, which ran from 2009 through 2011, offered cash payments of $1,500 for “knockouts,” in which an opposing player was knocked out of a game, or $1,000 for “cart-offs,” in which an opponent needed help off the field. The league has said the bounty pool grew as large as $50,000, reaching its height in the 2009 season, when New Orleans won its only Super Bowl.

Without Howard, Magic ease way past Pistons

SWB Yankees’ rally falls just a bit short

The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — Jason Richardson hit six 3-pointers and scored 22 points, J.J. Redick had 20 points and the Orlando Magic eased past the Detroit Pistons 119-89 Monday night. Glen Davis added 16 points and 16 rebounds starting in place of center Dwight Howard, who missed his third game in two weeks with back spasms. All five Orlando starters reached double figures in the Magic’s first win over the Pistons this season. The Magic also were playing without backup point guard Chris Duhon, who was suspended for the game for conduct detrimental to the team. Tayshaun Prince led Detroit with 21 points and eight rebounds. The Pistons lost their third straight game since a threegame winning streak. Detroit concludes its four-game road trip at Charlotte on Thursday. With both Howard and Hedo Turkoglu (out for the regularseason with a facial fracture) missing from the starting lineup, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy inserted Davis and Redick into the lineup. Neither player disappointed early, with Redick connecting from the outside and scoring eight first-quarter points, and Davis reaching double-double status just minutes into the second period.

Wizards 113, Bobcats 85 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jordan Crawford scored 20 points and Washington got 67 points from their bench as the Wizards hammered the Charlotte Bobcats in a matchup of the NBA’s two worst teams. James Singleton had 18 points and 12 rebounds and Cartier Martin chipped in with 19 points as the Wizards (13-44) swept the three-game season series from the Bobcats. John Wall scored just two points but had 12 assists. Corey Maggette scored 23 points for the Bobcats (7-48), who lost their 12th straight. It may have been a new low in Bobcats history losing by 28 points at home to the secondworst team in the league. On the positive side, the Bobcats took a step closer to securing the worst record in the league and the best chance at the No. 1 pick in NBA draft lottery on May 30.

Lakers 93, Hornets 91 NEW ORLEANS — Pau Gasol had 25 points and nine rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame Kobe Bryant’s absence to beat the New Orleans Hornets. Bryant missed his second straight game with a sore left shin, but Ramon Sessions helped pick up the slack with 17 points, including a 3-pointer that put the Lakers ahead by six with 26 seconds left. Andrew Bynum added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, who snapped a two-game skid.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees fought back from an early six-run deficit on Monday night, but couldn’t complete the comeback in a 6-5 loss to Syracuse to fall to 1-4 on the season. Yankees starter Adam Warren struggled in his first start of 2012 only lasting three innings and allowing all six runs. The righthander, who hasn’t won since June 20 last season, gave up three runs in the first and three more in the second. He threw 41 pitches in the first inning as the Chiefs batted around and plated their runs on a sacrifice fly and RBI-singles by Nationals’ top prospect Bryce Harper – his first Triple-A RBI – and Mark Teahen. Tyler Moore’s first home run of the season, a two-run blast in the second, gave Syracuse a 6-0 lead. But the Yankees weren’t giving up. They started chipping away. Dewayne Wise, signed in January as a minor league free agent by the Yankees, hit his first home run of the season – in his first game of the season after being with his wife while she gave birth for the team’s previous four games – with a shot over the right field wall in the fourth to trim the lead to 6-1. It was also the first longball of the season for SWB. He was activated off the temporary inactive list on Monday. The Yankees put up three runs in the seventh taking advantage of three Syracuse miscues. After Wise doubled, Brandon Laird popped up, but the ball dropped in the infield to put runners on first and second. Colin Curtis then singled home Wise for a 6-2 deficit, but Curtis was out on a baserunning mistake. The next batter, Kevin Russo poked a single to score Laird for a 6-3 deficit. Ramiro Pena followed with a

flyball to center, but Harper misplayed the ball and collided with right fielder Xavier Paul, scoring Russo and the lead was cut to 6-4. The Yankees ran themselves out of scoring chances in the final two innings. SWB loaded the bases in the top of the eighth, but Russo ended the frame with a groundout. Then in the ninth against Chiefs closer Ryan Perry, Francisco Cervelli drove in Ramiro Pena to pull the team within a run at 6-5. Cervelli however was thrown out trying to reach second base. That hurt the team because the next batter, Steve Pearce doubled.

CYC L I N G

Boonen has become the sport’s booming star O P I N I O N By JOHN LEICESTER AP Sports Columnist

ROUBAIX, France — Lionel Messi, Roger Federer and ... Tom Boonen. Granted, Boonen isn’t the global megastar those other two are, but they’re alike in that they tower above others in their sport. On a bicycle over cobblestones, there’s never been anyone better than Boonen. To the layman, that might not seem much of a claim to fame. But in cycling, it makes Boonen something of a god. This sport has built a whole tradition of venerating hard men who win hard races the hard way. Boonen on Sunday won the hardest one-day race there is, for a record-tying fourth time, and did it the hardest way possible — alone. For 53 kilometers (32 miles), Boonen rode solo at the front of ParisRoubaix, his long, muscular legs inexorably churning him forward over the brutally bumpy cobblestones that make this race a monument in cycling, as cherished by hard-core fans as Le Mans in motorsport and football’s ‘clasico’ matches between Barcelona and Real Madrid. The cobblestone tracks through French farmland shake loose nuts and bolts, puncture tires and spill riders. The rattle and shake of gripping handlebars over them is so exhausting, like holding a jackhammer for hours, that many of the 113 riders who reached the finish and the 82 others who foundered before the northern French town of Roubaix will suffer aches and pains for the rest of this week. “Everything hurts — your arms, your hands, your legs, your back, your neck,” said Allan Peiper, a director with the Garmin-Barracuda team who rode in five Tours de France and multiple Paris-Roubaix. He said the battering meted out by the cobbles makes the race even more punishing than the toughest mountain stages at the Tour. But Boonen seemed to glide over the rocks. That takes tremendous power and bike-handling technique. And it took courage to ride off the front of the race when the finish was so distant. In recent decades, few have pulled off

such a long, one-man victory. Bike fans adore such daring. The risk for Boonen was that he would quickly tire and be swallowed by rivals hunting as a pack behind. But once Boonen escaped, they couldn’t catch him. Cobblestone by cobblestone, Boonen pedaled relentlessly to maintain and then increase his lead. When it finally reached 1 minute, with 26 kilometers (16 miles) to ride, it became clear that the game was up. “I don’t get many chances to pull off a number like that one,” Boonen said. “I found myself at the front alone and thought, ‘OK, why not give it a try?’ I fought for every second and when I had accumulated a minute, I thought, ‘OK. It’s possible to ride all the way to Roubaix.’” “Frankly, it was beautiful,” said Christian Prudhomme, the Tour director who had the best seat in the house, riding in a car behind. “We were right behind him for an hour and a half. It was a sort of animallike strength. Not at all robotic,” Prudhomme said. “It was impressive.” This was the 110th Paris-Roubaix, which started in 1896, making it older than the Tour. With the other champions, Boonen has a plaque bearing his name in the communal showers at Roubaix’s velodrome, where the race ends among cheering crowds. Boonen on Sunday also happily

lifted the wonderfully bizarre trophy the race has awarded winners since 1977 — a cobblestone mounted on marble. In 2009, when Boonen tested positive for cocaine a second time, it looked like success was ruining him. He unhappily acknowledged that when he parties, “I apparently turn into somebody different.” Now, the former world champion looks like a winner again. “People said he was finished, because of his health problems, his knee problems, his wobbles outside of sport,” said Prudhomme. “Now, he is back.” Boonen also won Roubaix in 2005, ’08 and ’09, and now shares the record of victories with Roger de Vlaeminck, winner in 1972, ’74, ’75 and ’77. This month, Boonen also won his third Tour of Flanders, the daylong race through his native Belgium. It, too, rattles over cobbled sections. Federer’s record of 16 tennis majors and the football marks Messi is setting almost every week with Barcelona are arguably more impressive and certainly make them better known. But Boonen’s combined total of seven Roubaix and Flanders wins, a new record, is important stuff to fans who think cycling over rocks really rocks. “It makes him almost a god,” said Francois Doulcier, president of The Friends of Paris-Roubaix, a group dedicated to preserving the ancient cobblestone tracks. “It means he really is strong, that he loves cycling, and that he loves classic races with paving stones. We’re in awe.” After Boonen crossed the line, an employee of his Omega PharmaQuick Step team cleaned him up a bit with a quick wipe of his arms, face and legs, making him presentable for television interviews. Shame, really. Because covered in the grime and dust this race throws up, Boonen looked the part: the cobblestone king. John Leicester is an international sports columnist for The Associated Press.

AOL gets $1B for patents

Faltering Internet icon AOL was able to squeeze out more than $1 billion from Microsoft for a trove of some 800 patents in an auction, the latest sign of just how valuable such portfolios can be for the world’s biggest technology companies. Microsoft refused to say what the patents cover. Benchmark analyst Clayton Moran said they revolve around Internet technology, including advertising, search and mapping. This would help Microsoft go up against Google Inc., a big rival that is ahead of it in all three areas.

$2.2M Sunoco settlement

Massachusetts authorities say Sunoco Inc. has agreed pay $2.2 million to settle allegations that it sought payment from the state for hazardous waste cleanup at gas stations at the same time it was getting reimbursed by its insurers. Attorney General Martha Coakley said in a statement Monday that the Philadelphia-based fuel company received money from a state fund established to speed up the cleanup of environmentally dangerous leaks from underground storage tanks. The state says Sunoco did not disclose that it also got insurance settlements between 1997 and 2001 to cover cleanups.

Spain’s bright spot By MANUEL BAIGORRI Bloomberg News

MADRID — Juan Hurtado Bravo wants you to look good and he would like to show you how -- before you buy your clothes online. InditexA, owner of Spanish retail giant Zara, and Mango are in discussion with Hurtado to allow the 29-year-old to do just that, he says. Coquetame, the company he co-founded last year, makes a website that helps customers visually mix and match attire online. It’s one of the 80 startups in Madridbased operator Telefonica’s Wayra program, which is nurturing companies in Europe and Latin America.

AT&T sells Yellow Pages

AT&T Inc. on Monday said it agreed to sell a majority stake in its Yellow Pages business to the private-equity firm Cerberus Capital for $950 million. The sale is part of AT&T’s strategy to jettison shrinking parts of its business so it can focus on segments that are growing, particularly its wireless business. Revenue from the Yellow Pages unit has shrunk 30 percent in two years, as consumers continue to shun phone books in favor of the Web.

Oneok Partners plans to build a $1.8 billion pipeline that will bring 200,000 barrels of crude a day from North Dakota’s Bakken Shale field to an oiltrading hub in Cushing, Okla. Construction of the 1,300-mile Bakken Crude Express pipeline is expected to start as soon as 2013 and the system may be operating in early 2015, the Tulsa, Okla. based partnership said Monday. The project would be Oneok Partners’ first oil pipeline.

Spain may sound like an unlikely place to incubate tomorrow’s tech success stories. Mired in its worst economic crisis in decades and with the highest unemployment rate in the European Union, the country ranks 30th out of 71 in the Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index, after other European nations such as Germany, France and Italy. The index, which measures entrepreneurial attitudes, action and aspirations, is led by Denmark, while the U.S. was rated No. 3. Still, Spain is home to some successful standouts, including outdoor Wi-Fi services provider Grupo Gowex, founded by Jenaro Garcia, airline Volotea and so-

cial networking site Tuenti, now owned by Telefonica. Bravo hopes his Coquetame will be the next success story. Under Wayra, which means “wind” in the Andean Quechua language, entrepreneurs get an average of about $50,000, space and six months of mentoring. Telefonica receives a 10 percent stake in each business and a preference right to buy a successful product. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has pledged to pass a law for entrepreneurs and offer “red carpet” treatment for those who create jobs, while cutting levies for small companies.

NEW YORK — Facebook is spending $1 billion to buy the photo-sharing company Instagram in the social network’s largest acquisition ever. Instagram lets people apply filters to photos they snap with their mobile devices and share them with friends and strangers. “This is an important milestone for Facebook because it’s the first time we’ve ever acquired a product and company with so many users,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page. “We don’t plan on doing many more of these, if any at all.” Facebook said it plans to keep Instagram running independently. That’s a departure from its tendency to buy small startups and integrate the technology — or shut them down altogether just so it can hire talented engineers and developers. “We think the fact that Instagram is connected to other services beyond Facebook is an important part of the experience,” Zuckerberg wrote. “We plan on keeping features like the ability to post to other social networks, the ability to not share your Instagrams on Facebook if you want, and the ability to have followers and follow people separately from your friends on Facebook.” Facebook is expected to complete its initial public offering of stock next month.

It’s perfectly capable of running every bit of software with power to spare, it’s snappy, and it’s not lacking in features that might make you pine for another phone the

droid 4.0, the manufacturer has indicated an upgrade to Android 4.0 at some point. I don’t usually recommend midrange phones, but with the LG Lucid, I’d break that rule – it’s a great phone for people who are looking to get into a feature-rich smartphone without spending the seemingly ubiquitous $299.99 price tag that most new devices seem to carry. At $79.99 from Verizon Wireless, the Lucid is something of a bargain considering the performance. It’s not the most powerful phone on the market; it’s not the fastest or the thinnest. But it’s probably one of the most balanced devices you can buy.

Highs: 45-51. Lows: 31-35. Chance of rain or snow showers. Rain and snow showers possible tonight.

River Levels, from 12 p.m. yesterday.

It's going to be windy at times again today. A large low pressure system over eastern Canada and the northeast U.S. is creating high winds, clouds and some passing rain showers. This system will remain nearly stationary over the next few days, keeping it cloudy, breezy and cool. Along with rain showers, we may have some snow showers Wednesday morning. By Thursday, the system will begin moving away and take the clouds and wind with it. High pressure moves in Thursday night leading to a good deal of sunshine Friday. The temperature will warm up a little this weekend.

K HOW TO

recognize preterm labor

Signs of early labor — before the 37th week of pregnancy — may be more subtle than dramatic, doctors say. “It’s not necessarily even painful,” says Dr. James Marquardt, an obstetrician/ gynecologist in Midlothian, Va. Some tips: Be aware of contractions. They can feel as if like your abdomen

is tightening like a fist every 10 minutes or less, rather than anything sharp or painful. Pay attention to back pain ... A dull ache in the lower back can be a sign of trouble, whether the discomfort is constant or comes and goes. You also may feel more pressure or fullness in your pelvic area, as if your baby is

pushing down. ... and cramping. Regular abdominal cramps that feel like a menstrual period or gas pains — with or without diarrhea, nausea or vomiting — aren’t a normal discomfort of pregnancy. Don’t wait for your water to break. Even with full-term births, only about one in four women will experience the stereotypical gush of water before labor begins. But increased vaginal

discharge — watery, mucus-like or bloody — can indicate preterm labor. Stay in tune with your baby. A decrease in typical fetal movement may need attention. Err on the side of caution. Call your doctor with concerns and follow advice, which can include resting on your left side or drinking two or three glasses of water or juice to see if you feel better.

If symptoms worsen or return — or if there’s any doubt in your mind — ask for a checkup or head to a hospital. Report any problems. Tell your doctor about abnormal symptoms even if they go away. Also share any history of preterm birth, which is a risk factor for early labor in subsequent pregnancies. — MCT Information Services

Why children need dirt to aid immune systems By JENN SAVEDGE Mother Nature Network

for years that kids who grow up on farms are less likely to have immune system disorders such as asthma, allergies and inflammatory bowel disease than kids who grow up in cities. It’s called the “hygiene hypothesis,” but even though it’s generally accepted, health experts have never understood why it works — until now.

It’s official. Kids need to get dirty. It’s something that all kids seem to know instinctively and most parents need to be reminded of. A little dirt is a good thing. And a new study has finally found that exposure to dirt might just make our kids healthier in the long run. Health experts have known See DIRT, Page 3C

Q: What do you think about the use of “pink slime” in ground beef? — T.H., Philadelphia A: With a name like “pink slime,” it seems like “lean finely textured beef” has a serious image problem. I’ve seen the video of food chef and critic Jamie Oliver where he tosses scraps of meat into a washing machine to illustrate rather poorly the meat separation process, followed by the dousing of household bleach on pre-prepared so-called “pink slime” to make a dramatic point. This is simply not accurate. What is finely textured beef? When butchers remove the various cuts of beef from a carcass, there are bits of meat left behind. On a small scale, butchers have tossed these scraps away or sent them to pet food manufacturers because it is difficult and not cost-effective to try to remove the last bits of meat. However, it does make economic sense for large scale beef suppliers to invest in a technology that can salvage these last beef remnants. And about 20 years ago, with the blessing of the USDA for safety, that’s exactly what they did. The pieces are heated to liquefy the fat, and the beef remnants are spun in a centrifuge to separate the meat from the fat. This meat contains only 3-6 percent fat. This finely textured beef (yes, it is real meat) is then treated with ammonium hydroxide gas to kill any bacteria. This ammonium hydroxide is not an ingredient in the beef — it is just a processing step. This actually makes it safer than ordinary ground beef. True, it is not ground up beef — but nutritionally, it is real beef. Lean finely-textured beef is both nutritious and safe. What has upset folks so much is the perception that this is cheap meat filler hidden from the public. Once something has been labeled “pink slime,” it’s tough to convince the general public that it’s anything else but that. Industry experts claim that the elimination of this beef from our ground beef will require the slaughtering of an estimated 1.5 million more head of cattle each year to make up the difference. By the way, finely textured meat is like filet mignon compared to what’s found in all-beef hot dogs and bologna. Q: Is hair dye safe? Does it cause cancer? —C.W., Roswell, Ga. A: This has been a debated question for decades. An analysis of 79 studies done since 1966 published in the May 25, 2005, issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that there is no strong evidence of a marked increase in the overall risk of cancer in hair dye users. With respect to blood cancers like leukemia or lymphoma, the data suggests that there might be a very slight increased risk. But analysis of nearly 40 years of data is not easy, since certain chemicals that are potential carcinogens have been discontinued for at least 25 years. That makes today’s hair dyes much safer than in the past. Also, lighter hair colorings are felt to show even less of a potential risk. The position of the American Cancer Society is that hair dyes pose very little or no increased risk of cancer, and factors like smoking or poor diet are far more important. For those who still have concerns about the long-term use of hair dyes, my advice would be to use lighter dye colors; have less frequent touch-ups; use ammonia-free coloring that’s low in the chemical “p-phenylenediamine;” consider using coloring that’s chemical-free and vegetable-based (e.g. — henna); have highlights instead of full coloring to avoid dye contact with the skin of your scalp; or just avoid using it entirely.

Hormones in the house with menopausal mom, pubescent kids Who just slammed that door and burst into tears, mother or daughter? As women wait longer to have children, their menopause is more often coinciding with the onset of puberty in their kids. The effect can be a lot more squabbling, and extra strain on the family as a whole. Depending on the volatility of the pairing, clashes can range from occasional flare-ups to constantly simmering conflict to complete meltdowns. “It’s the irritability factor, times two,” said 45-year-old Chris Niederer of what she and her 14-year-old daughter, Madeline, are experiencing. “Everyone

to Children’s. Braylon, 6, of Massillon, has made many trips to Children’s for numerous medical problems. When he had a seizure at school, Braylon’s mother quickly called his neurologist at Children’s and met the ambulance at Mercy’s emergency department. Her husband went to Akron, Ohio, to await Braylon’s arrival. “It sounds like you’re able to think very quickly, being able to call everyone,” Holley said in admiration. But standing next to her son in thehospitalER,shecan’tholdback her tears. She confided her fear to Holley: Did Braylon’s seizures mean a shunt placed in his brain had malfunctioned? Holley knows the family. He’d seen them in the hospital during Braylon’s previous visits.

A new study from an international team of researchers led by scientists at Brigham and Women’s Hospital may finally

in the family is definitely aware.” Even though the Niederers, including father John, 16-year-old Zach and Michael, Madeline’s twin, are a very open family, the key to getting along is “being really conscious of moods and realizing that some of it is internal stuff we can’t help,” said the Minnetrista mom, adding that many of her girlfriends are in the same boat: “We talk about how erratic and impulsive they are, but it’s so much easier to see that behavior in them than in yourself.” Online discussions of the topic call the condition “hormone house” and “Mother Nature’s practical joke.” The number of women having babies in their mid-30s has risen “You’re a Christian, right?” he askedBraylon’smother.Shenodded. Quietly, he kneeled next to Braylon’shospitalbedandplacedahand on the boy. “We are praying this is not another shunt problem,” Holley whispered, eyes tightly shut. “We pray that you also be with his mom, his father, all of his family. Give them strength, and give them peace.” AstheteamwheeledBraylonout of the Mercy ER to the awaiting Children’s ambulance, Holley quickly grabbed a plastic bag filled with the boy’s belongings so it wasn’t forgotten in the rush. “You’re going for a ride, buddy,” he told Braylon, cradling the boy’s small hand in his own. As the ambulance sped from Canton, Ohio, to Akron, Braylon’s mom said she liked having the chaplain along for the journey. “It’s nice to have somebody to talk to,” she said. The transport program at Akron Children’s Hospital is one of only three nationwide to include a flight have found a biological explanation for the hygiene hypothesis. The study, recently published in the journal Science, found that exposure early in life to microbes helped to train certain immune cells to resist disease later in life. Exposure to those same microbes as an adult did

significantly in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 1996, women age 20-24 had the most babies, followed by women 25-29. By 2010, women in their early 30s were having more babies (97 per 1,000 births) than those in their early 20s (90 per 1,000). Since menopause typically occurs between ages 45 and 55, that means a whole lot more clashing of reproductive stages in families nationwide. “Menopause and puberty are a lot alike, they’re just going in reverse,” said Dr. Donna Block, an Edina, Minn., gynecologist with more than 25 years of experience. “One is ramping up; the other’s ramping down.”

Symptoms common to both cycles of hormonal upheaval — on top of changing bodies, personalities and emotions — include more susceptibility to depression, the need for more sleep, acne problems and greater appetite (not exactly the kind of mother-daughter sharing desired by either side). The mythology in the past was that every menopausal woman acts crazy, said Dr. Gretchen Van Hauer, a psychiatrist for Allina Mental Health who has been practicing for nearly 25 years. Women began taking pointed exception to that notion during the women’s movement in the 1960s and ’70s, claiming no connection between menopause and emotional volatil-

ity. “Now I’d say the pendulum has swung to the middle between the two” attitudes, she said. There’s less stigma attached to both menstruation and menopause than in the past; a recent episode of the popular primetime sitcom “Modern Family” featured a mom and her two teen daughters having what a little brother called their “monsteral” cycles at the same time. The dialogue poked fun at old stereotypes while acknowledging the reality that, yes, guys of the house, the ladies are going through something right now. In real life, too, moms and daughters of this generation are much more vocal about what they’re experiencing.

“I did not talk with my mom at all about any of this,” Niederer said. “But I can with my family, not only with my daughter and husband, but my two teenage sons. We took those commercials about talking to your kids about drugs and applied them to everything else, too, like how our physical changes are affecting our emotions.” As for menopausal mom Niederer, she says she’s lucky Madeline is generally even-tempered, and mature for her age. That way, she knows if there���s an outburst, it’s very likely to be purely hormonal. “We can be emotional, but we still have to find ways to be respectful to each other,” Niederer said. “We need to figure out when to deal with it, and when to walk away.”

was needed to help with patients in crisis. “Crew members tend to be Type-A personalities,” she said. “Theyarewonderfulcaringforothers, but they don’t care for themselves. The culture sort of stresses that you just keep going on, no matter what you see or experience. But when you don’t talk about those types of experiences, it can lead to something very similar to posttraumatic stress. They become verycynical.Theyactoutinwaysthat canhurttheircareersandfamilies.” Holley, 32, joined Akron Children’s chaplaincy team about 1 1⁄2 years ago after completing clinical pastoral education residencies at Methodist Hospital System and Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. He also serves as a chaplain in the Air Force Reserves. The Virginia native was working as a professional dancer in Las Vegas when he felt called to ministry. So he hung up his tap shoes and earned his master of divinity from Austin Presbyterian Theological

Seminary. Shortly after he started working at Children’s, hospital leaders asked him to join the transport team,inadditiontohisdutiesinthe emergency department, pediatric intensive care unit, psychiatric department and other areas. “This is a just a very high stress, high anxiety-producing job,” said Kendra Paxton, nurse manager for transport and the communications center at Children’s. “We felt it would be nice to have somebody like Mitchell to get to know the staff, talk with them.” Atfirst,somecrewmemberswere admittedly skeptical when the chaplain joined the close-knit team. “He’ll just get in our way,” critics complained. But as he spent time with the crew, they quickly realized he was there to help them, not hinder their work. “He takes care of all of us,” said Tina Wood, a paramedic with the transport team. “You can approach him with anything.”

Unfaithful husband searches for way out of his unsatisfying marriage Dear Abby: I have been married for 19 years, but I cannot stay faithful to my wife. I’ve had a few affairs, visit “massage parlors” on a regular basis and feel my wife deserves better. We have kids who will be affected, and it will hurt us financially, but I don’t feel right staying in a marriage I can’t be faithful to. I haven’t told my wife about this, but I believe she knows because we haven’t been intimate in months. Please give me some advice. — Living a Lie in the Mid-Atlantic Dear Living A Lie: It would have been better for you to have divorced

DEAR ABBY ADVICE before you had children. However, now that you do have kids, it’s time that you level with your wife. She may prefer to remain married to you until your children are out of the house. Or she may feel that her chances of finding someone else are better if you separate now. You’ll never know until you talk to her. Dear Abby: I am trying to decide who to have as best man at my wedding. I asked my best friend before I got engaged. After the engagement, I received a lot of pressure from my mom to have my brother as best man.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

After arguing with her for a month straight, I finally gave in and asked my brother. We have never been close. There’s no communication and no desire for it. My gut instinct tells me my best friend should be my best man. On the other hand, if I tell my brother he isn’t the one anymore, I’m afraid it will be the final dagger in any type of relationship with him. I need your advice on this matter. — Groom-To-Be in Minnesota Dear Groom-To-Be: You’re right that having asked your brother to be your best man, you should not rescind the invitation. However, your best friend can still be your best man. According to Emily Post, there can be two best men. She says:

CRYPTOQUOTE

“Though not so common, two chief attendants may be the right solution when you don’t want to choose between siblings or close friends. The attendants can share the duties and the fun!” So there you are. Problem solved. Dear Abby: I’m dating a man, “Jason,” who is a DJ. Lately work has been slow for him, but because he was so popular when he was younger, he finds it hard to accept that he will have to get a 9-to-5 job. Jason has expressed in the past that he doesn’t want to call a 30year-old his boss and would like to go to school. We hope to get married one day, but I am torn because I don’t want to support the household on a wing and a prayer.How can I

explain this without it turning into an argument? — On the Record in Connecticut Dear On The Record: The longer Jason waits to look for a 9-to-5 job, the younger his bosses will be. You shouldn’t have to support the household because Jason is dragging his feet about returning to school. Explain it to him by saying that if he doesn’t become more proactive, you will have to consider finding someone who is more ambitious. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won’t like the way a situation is going. Good news: You’re so creative now that you’ll be able to come up with about seven ways to lead the action in an alternate direction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Send a message of forgiveness to your own mirror. If there’s something keeping you from doing this, identify the issue. What might help you get past it? GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your lifestyle will speak volumes to the people close to you. Consider what you might do now to make them know how deeply they are loved. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Children look to develop their identities by associating with people who are more or less their own age. You’ll be like a child now, too, figuring out how you might fit in. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re probably not looking for love, but that doesn’t rule out having it in your life. Love, in its many forms, will be out there looking for you today, and by the day’s end, you’ll consider yourself found. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll only share your visions and dreams with those you really trust. People have to know you and prove their trustworthiness over a period of time before you’ll open up to them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be mentally sharp in the morning and then again late in the evening. The afternoon brings a slump that will actually be quite enjoyable if you give in to it and relax with good company.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You feel that the onus is on you to put a few crazy notions into the mix. Contributing ideas from outside the existing pattern will cause heads to tilt, eyebrows to arch and hands to clap. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve been dreaming about how things should go or could go in a perfect world. Now you’ll be reconciling the way things actually are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Extenuating circumstances may have you taking less than optimal care of yourself. Get back to basics. Your mood is always better when you feel secure in your health. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The one who loves you is also able to hurt you with so much as a cross-eyed look. Knowing this, you might recognize the similar power you hold with your love and wield that power gently. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a way of spiritually reaching into the heart of someone, plucking a molecule for examination and then reading the feeling. You can sense even the quietest anger, fear, joy and elation. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 10). Strong relationships will bring unexpected benefits to your world this year. Take a chance over the next six weeks. The training you get or an investment you make will pay in September. Friendship and romance decorate your July. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 13, 29 and 41.
