WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, plunging into the rancorous struggle over America’s mountainous debt, will draw sharp differences with Republicans Wednesday over how to conquer trillions of dollars in spending while somehow working out a compromise to raise some taxes and trim a cherished program like Medicare. Obama’s speech Obama will set a new longterm deficit-reduction goal and establish a dramatically different vision from a major Republican proposal that aims to cut more than $5 trillion over the next decade, officials said Monday. The speech is intended as a declaration of Obama’s commitment to seriously tame the deficit while outlining his long-term budget principles — key components of his campaign for reelection in 2012. After gingerly avoiding any discussion until now of cuts in the government’s massive benefit programs for the elderly and poor, Obama will acknowledge a need to reduce spending on Medicare and Medicaid while at the same time tackling defense spending and calling for increased taxes on the wealthy, White House officials said. This time the stakes are higher than last week’s budget fight that barely avoided a government shutdown. The cuts accomplished last week See BUDGET, Page 12A

NEW YORK — Soaring gas prices are starting to take a toll on American drivers. Across the country, people are pumping less into the tank, reversing what had been a steady increase in demand for fuel. For five weeks in a row, they have bought less gas than they did a year ago. Drivers bought about 2.4 million fewer gallons for the week of April 1, a 3.6 percent drop from last year, according to MasterCard SpendingPulse, which tracks the volume of gas sold at

140,000 service stations nationwide. The last time Americans cut back so much was in December, when snowstorms forced people to stay home. Before the decline, demand was increasing for two months. Some analysts had expected the trend to continue because the economic recovery was picking up, adding 216,000 jobs in March. “More people are going to work,” said John Gamel, director of gasoline research for MasterCard. “That means more people are driving and they should be buying more gas.”

Instead, about 70 percent of the nation’s major gas-station chains say sales have fallen, according to a March survey by the Oil Price Information Service. More than half reported a drop of 3 percent or more — the sharpest since the summer of 2008, when gas soared past $4 a gallon. Now it’s creeping toward $4 again. People are still taking a hit, even as they conserve gas. That’s because gas prices are going up faster than people are cutting back. Gas is 32 percent more expensive than it was in April 2010.

Regular meeting is May By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE -- A planned new weighted grading system got an “F” from some Wilkes-Barre Area School Board members Monday because it could cut down on the number of valedictorians in the district. In answer to a board member’s question in the work session about the status of a planned change to a weighted grading system, Superintendent Jeffrey Namey said the system will change next year, especially when it comes to determining the class

ple valedictorians. They don’t want that; they want to know who the highest-performing student is,” Namey said. “There is pressure to go to a numeric system and have the highest-performing student be valedictorian instead of saying 93 to100 is an A and having them all be valedictorians. ” Namey said significant scholarship dollars rest on a student’s status as best in the class, and parents have complained because their child has a higher grade point average or has taken harder classes than others who are also named valedictorians. “The student with the highest average has paid the price for four

Moran said colleges give scholarships based on a number of factors and do not come to the schools with scholarship money in hand seeking the valedictorians. Latinski said the change would hurt kids. “Why should we put in a system to eliminate valedictorians?” Latinski said, and he questioned whether the change was being made because Coughlin High School has larger graduating classes and consistently has more valedictorians. “We’re punishing our kids doing this.” The meeting was not a voting meeting and no action was taken on the matter.

28 at 5 p.m.

An issue involving rosters for bus drivers also prompted discussion after board member Lynn Evans, who is a district bus driver, questioned why drivers don’t have up to date rosters of the kids on their buses. Evans said all changes and updates should be given directly to the drivers. Namey said the bus company is given updates when students move on or off a route and it is the company’s responsibility to provide the information to the drivers. “I’m tired of being frustrated with this,” Namey said. “We give

them the information and every time they mess up, I’m going to call them on it.” In other business, the board discussed a change order that will increase the cost of roof repairs at Meyers High School by up to $16,000 and heard representatives of construction manager Apollo Group describe a potentially less expensive way to fix a leaking water pipe near Meyers. The proposed alternative would avoid digging up and replacing 450 feet of water pipe by running a bypass line from a water pit on Carey Avenue through the school boiler room and wrestling room. The cost of the original plan was $50,000 and the board will seek bids on the alternative before settling on a course of action.

Dallas OKs tentative Frack water in Hanover Twp. opposed 5-year teachers pact

Approval pending solicitor’s review. In-effect date to be September 2010. By SARAH HITE

DALLAS TWP. -- The Dallas School Board approved a fiveyear teachers contract at its meeting Monday night, pending Solicitor Benjamin Jones III’s recommendations. Superintendent Frank Galicki said the details of the contract could not be discussed until Jones reviewed the document, but he said “both teams worked diligently and patiently to come to a doable and workable conclusion.” The district teachers contract has been open since August 2010, and the new contract would be in effect from September 2010 until August 2015. Galicki said the details of the contract will be released via an official district statement in the near future. Business Manager Grant Palfey said the contract will reflect the needs of the most important part of the district – its students. “The taxpayers aren’t going to get everything they want, the teachers aren’t going to get everything they want, but the students should get everything they deserve,” he said. The board also approved a resolution opposing the cuts in state education funding. The resolution said the district will lose $906,323 in state funding, and while Galicki said other funding sources will be sought to keep programs in place, cuts will occur in other areas, such as not rehiring retirees’ positions. At a special budget meeting in

W H AT ’ S N E X T

The next School Board meeting will be at 7 p.m. May 2 in the administration building.

March, the board voted 5-4 to appoint Assistant Superintendent Paul Reinert to retain his other position as director of curriculum and instruction as well as become principal of Wycallis Elementary. Kathleen McCarthy, who served as Wycallis principal for 16 years, announced her retirement at a board meeting last month. Palfey said the plan to push for a 5 percent district tax increase is still on the agenda as far as the budget is concerned. The increase is above the statewide limit of 1.7 percent, and the district will need to apply for special exceptions to the state department of education to get the increase approved. The increase is attributed to construction of the new high school. “This is the last year we have to fund that building. Period,” he said. In other business, the board: • Approved retaining the service of attorney John Dean of Elliot, Greenleaf & Dean in all matters involving natural gas facilities that will endanger students and staff in the Dallas School District. • Added four snow days to the end of the 2011-12 school year calendar. • Tabled a decision to enter into a 15-year contract to purchase 30 percent of the district’s electrical power from Fernbrook Solar Farm LLC. The board was presented materials for the power purchase agreement in September.

Sex assault reported at Wilkes By STEVE MOCARSKY

WILKES-BARRE – A female student at Wilkes University reported being sexually assaulted in a campus building on Monday afternoon. The student was in a restroom on the lower level of Stark Learning Center on South River Street between Northampton and South streets at about 5:30 p.m. when the assault occurred, said university spokeswoman Vicki Mayk. Although uninjured, the stu-

dent was taken to a hospital, Mayk said. The attacker is described as a white male around college age wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt. Mayk said the assault was reported to the university’s Public Safety Office and to city police. A Wilkes-Barre police watch commander said no official report had been filed Monday night as of press time. Mayk said the university increased public safety patrols on campus and particularly in the area of Stark Learning Center in response to the incident.

The test demonstration, off Southern California near San Nicolas Island, could be the beginning of a new era in Navy weaponry, officials said. “This is very important to the Navy’s future weapon systems,” said RearAdm.NevinCarr,chiefoftheOffice of Naval Research. “By turning energy into a weapon, we become

more efficient.” The laser system, built by Northrop Grumman Corp., could someday be used against cruise missiles, enemy drones or even ballistic missiles, Carr said. “In the distant future, I can envision a day when this technology is outfitted on cruisers and destroyers,” he said. The laser’s power can be “scaled down,” offering the Navy a nonlethal alternative to ward off threats such as pirates, terrorists and smugglers with an intense blast of heat, Carr said.

McDermott and Commission- at 7 p.m. May 9. By SCOTT L. GOMB Times Leader correspondent

HANOVER TWP. -- Residents are trying to head off the possibility of a frack water treatment facility from locating in the township. Residents of the township, its surrounding municipalities and from as far away as Exeter bombarded commissioners at Monday night’s meeting with questions about a facility locating at the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority in the Breslau section. Members of the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition also pushed commissioners for answers. No one from the sanitary authority has approached the township with any plans at this time, commissioners said. Fracking water is a mixture of water, sand and a variety of chemicals that is forced down a gas well at high pressure and is used to fracture underground rock, allowing natural gas to escape and to be extracted. Currently what’s used in the mixture is not regulated in Pennsylvania. “We have not been contacted by the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority,” said acting Commissioner Chairman Brian McDer-

er Michael Mazur are employed by the authority. Both said they will excuse themselves from any vote on the matter regarding a treatment facility. Scott Cannon of Plymouth handed out pamphlets to residents and commissioners detailing the impact that the facility would have on the community. Cannon believes Breslau would have approximately 576 tanker trucks passing through each day as well as a reduction in air quality, home values and the alwayspresent danger of a hazardous chemical spill. On top of that, the Susquehanna River is right next to the facility, he said. “Why would you want a toxic waste facility in a residential neighborhood?” said Cannon. “The only reason frack water isn’t classified toxic is because of a loophole in the law.” The sanitary authority entered into an agreement on March 15 to study the possibility of allowing the facility to locate there. Past township Commissioner Frank Ciavarella urged commissioners to hurry and pass an ordinance against allowing a frack water facility from entering the township. He said the township

would have to pass the ordinance before the sanitary authority approached the township with any plans. Solicitor Robert Davison said the township can’t ban something that’s legally allowed in the state. However, the township can regulate it, he said. “The Oil and Gas Act of Pennsylvania preempts 95 percent of what we can do,” said Davison. “It’s something I’m looking into.” LeeAnn Wallace of Breslau said her property value has already gone down because of DMS Shredding, an auto and metal recycling plant located approximately 300 feet from her house. If the frack water facility opens, it will only get worse, she said. “I already deal with the constant explosions from DMS,” she said. “Now I don’t want a toxic waste facility in my backyard.” Code Enforcement Officer Al Broody said the first place the sanitary authority would have to go would be to him with its plans. As of now, he hasn’t been contacted. “I’ll be the first to know,” said Broody.

WRIGHT TWP. -- Supervisors on Monday held their meeting with the local Crestwood Student Government and proctored the student officers. Christina Tometchko, president; Ashley Legg, vice president; Samantha Snyder, recording secretary; Kimberly Price, corresponding secretary; and Ami Patel, treasurer, participated in the reading of the township’s minutes and agenda. All of the high school student government officers said they had a good experience with how local government is handled and carried out. In other business, Supervisor Donald Zampetti noted the township’s spring cleanup will

be held May 2-7. Zampetti said that arrangements can be made for pickup of items by calling the supervisors’ office Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. during April. Dumpsters will be available behind the municipal building for residents to deposit items as well. This will take place Wednesday, May 4, through Friday, May 6, 7 a.m. to noon and 12:45 to 6 p.m. Residents who want to deposit on Saturday, May 7, can do so 8 a.m. to noon and 12:45 to 4 p.m. Permits to deposit items in the Dumpsters must be purchased in advance and no one will be allowed to deposit items unless they have a permit.

He also said that after the spring cleanup is complete, he has plans to improve all streets in the park in need of paving. Supervisors hired Borton Lawson to amend SALDO (Subdivision and Land Development Ordinances) and Zoning Ordinances to coincide with the mandatory Act 167 stormwater ordinance. Supervisor Daniel Frascella wanted residents to know the township is taking donations for the township’s July Fourth fireworks show.

Laflin Borough looks to extend Saylor Avenue By STEFFEN LIZZA Times Leader Correspondent

LAFLIN -- Borough council voted Monday night to approve a measure that will extend Saylor Avenue to Main Street. The county requested the council’s input on the matter that will impact four borough properties. The properties currently on that stretch of Market Street will have a change of address to East Saylor Avenue once the extension takes place.

According to council, the address change will simplify matters for police, fire and other emergency services that need quick address verification. Council also approved several resolutions and ordinances, including appointing an administrator for the non-uniform pension plan. Council President Thomas L .Parry agreed to take on those duties with the council’s approval. Council also voted in favor of a motion to advertise an or-

dinance that will remove a traffic control device from the intersection of Oakwood Drive, Oakhill Drive, and Cedarwood Drive. If approved, the ordinance will remove stop signs from the intersection to improve traffic flow. In other business, the council voted to approve a street sweeping vendor. Street sweeping in the borough is tentatively set to begin the first week in May.

Implicated jail guard demoted


LOCAL Former President Jimmy Carter will attend benefit today

he state Supreme Court has declined to hear the appeal of a T former Dallas Township police officer

who was convicted of killing his wife. Jeff Dennis was convicted in October 2007 of first-degree murder for shooting his wife, Carli, in the head inside their Wyoming home in February 2006. Dennis maintained Carli shot herself. Dennis initially appealed the conviction to the state Superior Court, Dennis arguing prosecutors should not have been permitted to present witnesses who testified about comments Carli had made. He also argued he was wrongly denied the opportunity to present a computer animation that supported his version of the shooting. The Superior Court denied the appeal in May 2009. Dennis then asked the Supreme Court to review the case. The high court denied the request in a one-sentence order issued Thursday.

New trial ordered in Plains Twp. officer suit Court determined federal judge had improperly instructed the jury. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

PLAINS TWP. – A federal appellate court has ordered a new trial for a Plains Township woman who sued a township police officer for allowing an ex-boyfriend into her apartment to retrieve items he claims were his. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling in the case of Elizabeth Harvey after determining a federal judge had improperly instructed the jury regarding the law. Harvey filed suit in 2001, alleging officer Ronald Dombroski violated her civil rights when he permitted her ex-boyfriend to retrieve items from the apart-

ment they shared while she was not home. The case went to trial in December 2008. A jury ruled in favor of Dombroski. Harvey then appealed the case to the Third Circuit. In a ruling issued March 28, the court overturned the verdict, finding that U.S. District Judge James Munley improperly instructed the jury regarding the factors it needed to weigh in deciding the case. Under federal law a police officer can be held liable for violating a person’s rights in a repossession case only if it is shown that the officer took an active role in assisting in the repossession, the court said. In the Harvey case, the Third Circuit Court said Munley improperly instructed the jury regarding the elements it must consider in deciding if Dombroski had

taken that active role. Harvey argued Dombroski did take an active role because he directed Harvey’s landlord to open the door to her apartment to let her ex-boyfriend in. In his instruction to the jury, Munley advised the panel that the only question it needed to answer was whether Dombroski had ordered the landlady to open the door. The Third Circuit said that was a legal error because the panel should have been instructed that it needed to consider the totality of the circumstances, and not a single fact, in making that determination. The ruling returns the nearly 10-yearold case back to federal court for a second trial. Terrie Morgan-Besecker, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 570-829-7179.

Ciampi, who faces no charges, was corporal, now a correctional officer over his connection to drug case.

WILKES-BARRE – The Luzerne County prison board on Monday demoted a prison guard who was implicated, but not charged, in connection with a drug case. Joseph Ciampi was demoted from corporal to correctional officer based on his involvement in a drug case that led to charges against four current and former prison guards. The demotion will “We behave little impact on lieve some Ciampi financially as of his ac- he will continue to earn $53,078, which is tions ilabout $400 less than lustrated he earned as a corpoaccording to Warpoor judg- ral, den Joseph Piazza.

Ciampi, 43, was suspended without pay on March 11, one day after his name surfaced in an arrest affidavit that was filed against fellow correctional officers Chris Walsh and Jason Fierman, and former correctional officers Kevin Warman and John Carey. According to the affidavit, Ciampi admitted he purchased cocaine from Walsh at least four times between late 2008 and early 2009. Ciampi, who is cooperating with authorities, has not been charged in connection with the case. Stephen Menn, attorney for the prison board, said Ciampi was reinstated on March 29 but did not receive any back pay from the date of his suspension. Menn said Ciampi agreed to the demotion after a disciplinary hearing before the board. “He was not arrested, but we believe some of his actions illustrated poor judgment. He met with the board and agreed to accept a demotion,” Menn said. Fierman and Walsh remain on unpaid suspension pending resolution of their criminal cases. Warman and Carey were previously fired. Authorities say Fierman and Warman, a nurse who worked in the prison’s infirmary, provided drugs to inmates and other guards. Carey is accused of purchasing drugs from another former guard, John Gonda, who was fired for his involvement in a previous drug case, while Walsh is accused of selling drugs to Ciampi, but not to inmates. In other business, the board also demoted Cpl. Eugene Wicht to the position of correctional officer. Piazza said that demotion, which Wicht agreed to, was based on a disciplinary issue that was unrelated to Ciampi’s case.

Suit’s dismissal sought

Attorneys of Luzerne County Children and Youth Services have asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a man who claims the agency thwarted his efforts to regain custody of his daughter because of his gender. Fred Clayworth of Edwardsville filed suit in March, alleging the agency forced him to spend thousands of dollars over 4 ½ years to regain custody of his daughter, who had been placed for adoption by Clayworth’s ex-girlfriend. Clayworth immediately contacted Children and Youth after the child’s birth to advise the agency he was the father and wished to take custody. He alleges he did everything he was asked of him, but his efforts were repeatedly thwarted because the agency wanted to give the child to foster parents who wished to adopt her. Donald Brobst, attorney for Children and Youth, filed a motion to dismiss the complaint on Friday, arguing that the agency and individual defendants are protected from liability based on judicial immunity because their decisions were part of the discretionary aspect of their jobs.

pervisors’ choice. Benyo is also a former board chairman. Chairman William Gallagher said 10 resumes had been submitted for the position, and he encouraged those who were not chosen to engage in other areas of public service. In voting to ban bath salts, the board took action similar to that taken by several other municipalities in the area in response to well-publicized problems with the substance. Ed Pane, director of Serento Gardens alcohol and drug services, Hazleton, supported the passing of this ordinance, stating that local emergency rooms have seen an increase in drug-related cases due to the use of bath salts. He compared the effects of the substance to PCP and stated that it often caused "overt psychosis." Pane emphasized that not only must the ordinance be passed, but it must also be consistently enforced, especially in businesses operating in the Laurel Mall, where young people tend to gather. Concern in regard to a possible methadone clinic was also voiced and Pedri indicated that was a zoning issue. The zoning board meeting is schedule for Monday.

HAZLE TWP. -- Township supervisors on Monday night named Andrew Benyo as the replacement for former Supervisor Anthony "Midge" Matz, who had resigned amid allegations that he misused a township gas card. The board also passed an ordinance banning the sale of bath salts in the township. Upon Supervisor Francis Boyarski’s announcement of the selection, several gasps were heard from the sizable crowd at the meeting. However, several residents who stepped up to the podium congratulated Benyo, saying he was a good choice for the position. And comments of the crowd were generally positive. Matz resigned last month. In previously published reports solicitor Charles Pedri said there was no criminal intent by Matz, but there was a violation of township policy. It was also previously reported that Matz said he had used the card instead of filing for mileage reimbursement in the amount of $2,500. Boyarski cited Benyo’s 18 years of experience as a supervisor in the past and his tenure as roadmaster as a basis for the su-

Hanover Area board tackles budget deficit Directors look at areas to cut in dealing with projected $1 million shortfall.

By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

HANOVER TWP. – During an abbreviated work session of the Hanover Area School Board on Monday night, board President John Pericci said the administration is looking into reducing budgetary proposals in dealing with a projected $1 million deficit. Pericci, as he has done previously, outlined proposals for cost cuts for supplies and services that are designed to reduce a projected 1.6 mill tax increase down to .6 mills. A mill is a $1 tax on every $1,000 of assessed property value. The projected budget for 201112 is almost $28.3 million up from $24.9 million this year. The budget is scheduled to be enacted by

May 30. Saying the impact to the district of Gov. Tom Corbett’s costcutting proposals is $1.55 million, Pericci said salary freezes, staff reductions, as well as supply cuts are being considered. In conjunction with the latter, it was stated that the school administration has been authorized on May 5 to receive (and open) bids for: gasoline and fuel, garbage collection, reconditioning of athletic equipment, general athletic supplies, general science supplies and nursing/medical supplies. Besides the work session, the board also met in executive session to review personnel matters. In addition, a refund of real estate taxes was approved for the years 2009 and 2010 for Mary, Darryl and Lora Tomko, 32 Tomko Ave., Hanover Township, in the amounts of $484.29 and $504.15.

a presentation from Jerry Hudock and Ted Warkomski, MidAtlantic Solar, West Nanticoke, about the construction of solar panels on property behind the high school. Warkomski estimated that savings in electrical costs could be $61,000 per year at the high school alone. He said the solar system has the potential to eliminate all of the district’s current electrical expenses as well as produce additional energy that could be publicly marketed. The total cost Warkomski submitted for the solar panel project is between $18 million and $22 million, which he suggested could be offset through grants, tax rebates and other means. Hudock said an immediate 30 percent federal tax rebate is a possibility. Thomas R. Cipriano Jr., business administrator, will hold further discussion with Mid-Atlantic personnel.

It advanced out of the House Health Committee on a 19-4 vote and would need to go through the full House, the Senate and the governor’s office to become law. Supporters and critics of the bill disagreed over whether it would improve or hurt the quality of women’s health services in the state. The Harrisburg-based Pennsylvania Family Council said the bill would provide critically important health and safety protections

for women. "Cases such as this clearly show why it is critical that regulations be placed on abortionists in the commonwealth," the Pennsylvania Family Council said. "The lives and safety of women are clearly at stake." But the American Civil Liberties Union said state law already provides guidelines on equipment, staff, emergency transfers to hospitals, counseling and reporting by abortion clinics. It warned that the bill would require the clinics to make expensive changes to their staffing and

WARRIOR RUN -- Council members on Monday night were forced to postpone a choice between either a partial or a full burn ban ordinance because the borough solicitor, who is preparing the possible new laws, was absent. Officials said residents are divided on which ordinance would be better for the borough. Also, because of continuing citizen complaints, consideration of a dog ordinance will also be on the agenda for the next meeting. Two residents complained about stormwater runoff problems at two separate borough properties. Issues at the proper-

ties include flooded basements and yards. In both cases, the residents stated that actions of a nearby property owner are causing the stormwater to drain onto their properties. Paul Pasonick, borough engineer, said these kinds of problems are between property own-

ers. “They’re civil cases,� Pasonick said. He said he will be looking into any drainage problems on the streets in question. But he said, “The borough will not be going onto private property to try to correct drainage problems.�

The state renewed regular inspections of abortion clinics after a February 2010 drug raid by authorities uncovered poor conditions at the Women’s Medical Society clinic, run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell. A Philadelphia grand jury says the state had ended regular inspections in about 1995 to avoid barriers for women seeking abortions. In January, Gosnell was charged with killing seven babies born alive and with the 2009 death of a woman after a botched abortion at his clinic, which prosecutors called a drug mill by day and an abortion mill by night. Prosecutors, who described the clinic as “a house of horrors,� said hundreds more babies died there.

Subway blast kills 11 in Belarus

MINSK, Belarus — An explosion tore through a key subway station in the Belarusian capital of Minsk during evening rush hour Monday, killing 11 people and wounding 126. An official said the blast was a terrorist act. President Alexander Lukashenko did not say what caused the explosion at the Oktyabrskaya subway station, but suggested outside forces could be behind it. “I do not rule out that this gift could have been brought from outside,” Lukashenko

said. The authoritarian leader, under strong pressure from the West over his suppression of the opposition, has frequently alleged outside forces seek to destabilize his regime. Deputy prosecutor-general Andrei Shved said the blast was a terrorist act, but did not give further details. An Associated Press reporter at the scene saw heavily wounded people being carried out of the station, including one person with missing legs. Several witnesses told The Associated Press that the explosion hit just as passengers were stepping off a train about 6 p.m. local time. The Oktyabrskaya station, where Minsk’s two subway lines intersect, was crowded with passengers at the end of the work day. The station is within 100

About five hours after the blast, Health Minister Vasily Zharko said 11 people were killed and 126 people were wounded, 22 of them severely. One witness, Alexei Kiklevich, said at least part of the station’s ceiling collapsed after the explosion. Igor Tumash, 52, said he was getting off a train when “there was a large flash, an exAP PHOTO plosion and heavy smoke. I fell on my knees and crawled ...

Ban on face veils begins

The world’s first ban on Islamic face veils took effect Monday in France, meaning that women may bare their breasts in Cannes but not cover their faces on the Champs-Elysees. Two veiled women were hauled off from a Paris protest within hours of the new ban. Their unauthorized demonstration, on the cobblestone square facing Notre Dame Cathedral, was rich with both the symbolism of France’s medieval history and its modern spirit of defiance. While some see encroaching Islamophobia in the new ban, President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government defended it as a rampart protecting France’s identity against inequality and extremism. Police grumbled that it will be hard to enforce. RALEIGH, N.C.

Papal jewelry up for bid

In the unlikely location of a North Carolina jewelry store near the beach, a lavishly jeweled cross and a ring once owned by Pope Paul VI sit under lock and key, awaiting transfer to an even less familiar venue for symbols of Roman Catholic authority: an eBay auction. The items have turned up at a Wilmington store owned by a Southern Baptist with a flair for self-promotion. It’s the latest stop on a strange journey involving luminaries ranging from UN Secretary General U Thant to Evel Knievel, and which began with Paul VI’s novel decision to allow some of his jewelry to be sold to raise money for charity. The Vatican confirmed that the items are the "personal" ring and pectoral cross of Paul VI. Each pope’s official ring is smashed with a hammer when he dies. MAPLETON, IOWA

Warning helps save lives

Authorities say the 15 minutes of warning given to residents of a small Iowa town were key to preventing any deaths or serious injuries when a tornado destroyed more than half the community. The storm barreled through Mapleton on Saturday night with winds of more than 130 mph. But the worst injury was a mere broken leg. Sheriff Jeff Pratt says he and his deputies, along with trained storm spotters, tracked the twister across the countryside and notified communities in its path to blow their warning sirens earlier than usual. That let people scramble into basements or seek other shelter. About 100 homes were destroyed. On Monday, volunteers began cleaning up.

Another earthquake hits Japan By JAY ALABASTER and ERIC TALMADGE Associated Press

SENDAI, Japan — A strong new earthquake rattled Japan’s northeast and killed one girl Monday as the government urged more people living near a tsunami-crippled nuclear plant to leave, citing concerns about long-term health risks from radiation. The magnitude 7.0 aftershock, which collapsed the 16-year-old girl’s house, came just hours after residents bowed their heads and wept in ceremonies to mark a month since a massive earthquake and tsunami killed up to 25,000 people and set off radiation leaks at the nuclear plant by knocking out its cooling systems. “Even after a month, I still cry when I watch the news,” said Marina Seito, 19, a student at a junior college who recalled being in a basement restaurant in Sendai

when the original 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit on March 11. Plates fell and parts of the ceiling crashed down around her. Officials said Monday’s aftershock did not endanger operations at the tsunamiflooded Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex, where power was cut but quickly restored. The epicenter was just inland and about 100 miles north of Tokyo. But a nuclear safety official said repeated strong aftershocks — another large quake hit last Thursday — were slowing work at the plant, and said that if one of them were to spawn a tsunami, the complex would be just as vulnerable as on March 11. “At the moment, no tsunami resistance has been added to the plant. At the moment, there is nothing we can do about it,” said Hidehiko Nishiyama of Ja-

pan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. With the crisis dragging on, residents of five more communities, some of them more than 20 miles from the plant, were urged to evacuate within a month because of high levels of radiation, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told reporters. People living in a 12-mile radius around the plant already have been evac-

uated. “This is not an emergency measure that people have to evacuate immediately,” he said. “We have decided this measure based on long-term health risks.”

Ivory Coast strongman nabbed in bunker Four-month standoff ends as president’s forces pull Gbagbo from burning home. By MARCO CHOWN OVED Associated Press

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — Ivory Coast’s elected president used his troops and French tanks and air power to oust strongman Laurent Gbagbo, ending their fourmonth standoff on Monday by pulling him from his burning residence. Images of Gbagbo being led into a room in a white undershirt were broadcast on television as proof of his capture even as he refused to sign a statement formally ceding power after losing November’s election. There was little celebrating in public in Abidjan, as resi-

dents of the commercial capital were still fearful of the hundreds of armed fighters that continued to prowl the streets, refusing to believe their leader had been arrested. Sporadic gunfire echoed across the city Monday night. More than a million civilians fled their homes and untold numbers were killed over the course of the power struggle that threatened to re-ignite a civil war in the world’s largest cocoa producer. Gbagbo could be forced to answer for his soldiers’ crimes, but an international trial threatens to stoke the divisions that President Alassane Ouattara will now have to heal. Gbagbo’s dramatic arrest came after days of heavy fighting during which French and U.N. helicopters fired rockets at arms depots

around the city and targets within the presidential compound. Ouattara’s final push began just after French airstrikes ceased at around 3 a.m. Monday. A simultaneous French armored advance secured large parts of the city

BENGHAZI, Libya — Libyan rebels, backed forcefully by European leaders, rejected a ceasefire proposal by African mediators on Monday because it did not insist Moammar Gadhafi relinquish power. Despite an earlier announcement that the Libyan leader had accepted the truce, his forces “There can shelled a key re- be no solebel-held city and killed six ly military people, a doc- solution to tor said. “Col. Gadha- the crisis fi and his sons in Libya.” must leave imAnders Fogh mediately if he Rasmussen wants to save NATO secretary himself,” said general Mustafa AbdulJalil, head of the rebels’ leadership council. “If not, the people are coming for him.” Even as the African Union delegation arrived in the eastern rebel stronghold of Benghazi, crowds of protesters gathered to demonstrate their opposition to any dealmaking while Gadhafi remains in power. They said they had little faith in the visiting African Union mediators, most of them allies of Gadhafi. Three of the five African leaders who came preaching democracy for Libya seized power in coups. Abdul-Jalil, a former justice minister who split with Gadhafi and leads the Benghazi-based Transitional National Council, said the proposal “did not respond to the aspirations of the Libyan people” and only involved political reforms. “The initiative that was presented today, its time has passed,” said Abdul-Jalil. “We will not negotiate on the blood of our martyrs. We will die with them or be victorious.” Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini strongly backed the rebel demand for Gadhafi’s immediate departure and said he doubted anyway that the Libyan leader would have abided by the cease-fire after he broke more than one pledge before to halt violence. The AU sought a suspension of three weeks of international airstrikes on Gadhafi’s forces. The secretary general of NATO, which took over control of the international air operation over Libya from the U.S., welcomed any efforts to resolve the conflict. “There can be no solely military solution to the crisis in Libya,” Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.



Court: Release state cops’ off-duty jobs Records had been sought by AP. Troopers group wanted to protect officers’ safety.

By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania State Police has been ordered for a second time to release records sought by The Associated Press about work that its employees perform while they are off duty. A Commonwealth Court opinion filed Monday upheld an earlier decision by the state Office of Open Records. The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association had challenged the office’s decision last year, contending that releasing the records could act as a road map to someone seeking to harm an offduty trooper. However, the court’s majority opinion written by Judge Johnny J. Butler said the union and state police did not prove that releasing the records would endanger troopers, particularly after the AP suggested that the state police could withhold the names and schedules of troopers involved in undercover work. "While we appreciate the potential danger PSP troopers may face on and off-duty, the evidence submitted in this case does not establish that disclosure of the supplementary employment forms and supporting documents, ... when appropriately redacted, make it more likely than not that PSP employees are at a risk of substantial and demonstrable risk of physical harm or to their personal security," Butler wrote.



AP’s lawyer Gayle Sproul said the court took very seriously a requirement that an agency that wants to withhold records provide evidence of a "substantial and demonstrable risk of physical harm," rather than relying on examples with circumstances that were not present in this case. Troopers’ Social Security numbers and home addresses also would be withheld. An Office of Open Records appeals officer said in her decision last year that state police may legally black out home addresses of law-enforcement officers and Social Security numbers for all employees. But she said state police failed to establish that information about outside jobs is protected by exemptions in the state Right-to-Know Law. A lawyer for the troopers’ union, Todd Eagen, said Monday he did not know yet whether the union would appeal to the state Supreme Court. Union president Bruce Edwards said in a statement that he could not comment at length because he had not had a chance to thoroughly review the court’s opinion. “The PSTA believes the safety of troopers and their families should concern all Pennsylvanians,” Edwards said. Last year, a moonlighting state trooper was connected to off-field incidents involving quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The Pittsburgh Steelers star sometimes used the trooper friend as his personal assistant. The AP’s request had sought supplementary employment requests of current state police employees made since Jan. 1, 2005, and any responses, decisions and records related to them.

Pa. lawsuit liability bill clears House By PETER JACKSON Associated Press




Fourteen arrested in Philadelphia dogfighting raids at four sites By MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press


The Rutgers University Programming Association paid the "Jersey Shore" reality TV star $32,000 to answer questions. That’s $2,000 more than Rutgers will pay Nobel-winning novelist Toni Morrison to deliver the commencement address next month. Freshman Daniel Oliveto and junior Paul Tranquilli are spearheading the effort. Oliveto tells the Asbury Park Press Polizzi’s message to "study hard, but party harder," was offensive. Rutgers University President Richard McCormick said school administrators asked students in charge of booking campus entertainment to reconsider their decision to bring “Snooki” to the school. He said students are allowed to book whatever entertainers they choose with the $6 per student per semester fee for such events. “We don’t censor who they in-

vite — we don’t say you can invite Lawrence Welk but you can’t invite Snooki,” McCormick told a panel of New Jersey senators in response to a question on Monday. One GOP senator has since called for legislation allowing students to “opt in” to paying entertainment fees. Sen. Joe Kyrillos said students and their parents shouldn’t have to pay for entertainment they find objectionable. McCormick said the administration and the students have learned a life lesson. The students hope Springsteen would either perform or have a question-and-answer session similar to the sit-down Snooki gave last month. Springsteen’s publicist has not replied to a request for a response.

HARRISBURG — The Republican-controlled House of Representatives on Monday overwhelmingly approved a bill that would limit the liability of multiple defendants in civil judgments in Pennsylvania, sending the measure on to an uncertain fate in the Senate. The "fair-share" legislation, supported by statewide business groups and opposed by trial lawyers, won final House approval on a 112-88 vote. Proponents said the bill would fix an unfair law and make Pennsylvania more attractive to prospective employers. But members of the Democratic minority sought to cast the bill as an attack on victims and to portray defendants in civil cases as "wrongdoers." They also made a series of motions — all rejected by lopsided margins by — aimed at allowing them to offer amendments that fell by the wayside when the GOP used a parliamentary maneuver to cut off debate last week. “Who are we here for?” asked Rep. Mark Cohen, D-Philadelphia.. "Are we here for victims, or just for defendants, in civil litigation?” Rep. Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster, said many victims of crime rely on civil litigation for compensation not available in the criminal justice system for medical expenses or counseling. "We haven’t had a full debate on this," Sturla said. Majority Leader Mike Turzai said the bill is about apportioning damages among multiple defendants in civil judgments after a jury has decided each defendant’s share of responsibility. He said amendments were thoroughly discussed in the Appropriations Committee and on the floor.

Romney forms exploratory committee in first steps for presidential bid By PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republican Mitt Romney took the first official steps toward a second presidential bid Monday, telling supporters he had formed an exploratory committee to begin a White House run. Romney, who has been planning a second run since losing the Republican nomination in 2008, focused in his announcement on the economy and what he described as President Barack Obama’s failed policies.

"Across the nation, over 20 million Americans still can’t find a Google his or her child’s name occasionally to see what activity shows, and if there are real concerns there are numerous software programs to monitor Internet use. He said Facebook also offers “A Parent’s Guide To Facebook” at no cost. He said the first priority is to make sure the child is safe. The next step is to collect evidence of the activity. The school, other parents and even the police should be involved if the activity is dangerous or if it involves possible violence or illegality.

is yet to be determined, he said. Kathleen Hanlon, diocesan secretary for Catholic schools and superintendent of schools, will begin meeting with teachers and administrators today, Bambera said. The bishop said the decision about which schools to close was based on “factual data,” including actual enrollment, building capacity; finances and proximity to other schools. He said reaction of those individuals associated with the closing schools was surprise, sadness and dismay, but those from the schools not affected was “very different.” Those from the other schools “have begun to realize that our goal here right now is less to save a particular school building and more to save the system,” Bambera said. “And I can save the system if we put in

how jobs are created in the private sector." Romney, a businessman who ran Salt Lake City’s Winter Olympics, has lined up donors, staff and advisers for his second presidential bid. He lost the GOP nomination to John McCain in 2008. Since then, Romney has writplace some of the things we have just spoken about. If I keep every school open, I will Find a link to video of lose the system.” the Bishop Bambera said Joseph one of the main Bambera’s reasons for the announcement about restructuring dethe Catholic cision was beschools at cause schools in www.times- the Holy Cross system based in Lackawanna and Bradford counties and the Holy Redeemer system based in Luzerne County have a total of about 2,000 empty student seats. He said there are 6,000 students in the Holy Cross and Holy Redeemer systems. And although the schools in the two systems achieved a 90 percent enrollment retention based on figures from an initial registration that ended March 4, a large discrepancy still exists between capacity and enrollment, Bambera said.

ten a book on government and has raised money and campaigned for Republican candidates. His strengths are substantial: He’s well known and he’s an experienced campaigner. He has a personal fortune and an existing network of donors. He has a businessman’s background and a re-

cord of turning around failing enterprises in a time of economic turmoil. But his challenges are big, too. They include the health care law that was enacted in Massachusetts on his watch and that’s similar to Obama’s national health overhaul, which conservatives despise.

“We are facing right now 2,000-plus empty seats, so a quarter of our seats are empty. You pay for those and they become a part of your expense. We’re also up against the reality of a $19 million debt in the Diocese of Scranton that was incurred by our school systems,” Bambera said. Gate of Heaven School was at a projected capacity of 39 percent for next school year, and Marian was looking at similar numbers. St. Mary Assumption in Pittston had a projected enrollment of 142 students in grades kindergarten through eight, when the optimum enrollment for a K-8 school is about 225 students, Bambera said. Another problem is that parishes have been paying 25 percent of their income to support the Catholic schools. “It’s unsustainable,” he said, adding that a more realistic contribution would be 9 or 10 percent, the national average. “We put forth a plan that will

stabilize our systems. We increased the per-student tuition of parents, putting it much more in line with dioceses around the United States that are running sustainable Catholic school systems. For that to happen, our families are generally expected to pay at least 60 to 65 percent of the per-student cost.” To achieve those numbers, Bambera said, the diocese provided parents with tuition projections for the next three years. Those numbers include tuition increases of $300 each year. “What we also need to put into that mix that was clearly not put in nearly as aggressively the last time around was a focus on marketing and development,” Bambera said. He hopes that successful marketing will result in higher enrollment in the future and less severe tuition hikes. Steve Mocarsky, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 970-7311.

Leonard Seras April 8, 2011


eonard C. Seras, 88, died suddenly on Friday, April 8, 2011, at Bayonet Point Hospital in Hudson, Fla. He was a resident of Port Richey, Fla., for 14 years, and had lived previously in Easton, Pa., Wharton, N.J., and in the Wyoming Valley area. Len was born in Plymouth, on July 3, 1922, and was preceded in death by his parents, Gus and Betty Seras; daughter, Deborah; and wife, Mildred (Blaski). Yet another member of the “greatest generation,” Len, described by some as a “unique individual,” enjoyed a varied life career. Following graduation from Plymouth High School in 1939, Len began his professional life as a musician in local bands, eventually carrying that love of music with him as he served proudly, from 1942 to 1946, as an Army Air Force staff sergeant in the Pacific Theater during World War II. While in the service, he was a member of the touring musical group called the Skyliners. Len then took his musical skills forward into his professional life, playing and recording into the 1960s with groups headed by Jose Moran, Bobby Byrne, Lee Vincent, and Henry Shapiro. Len even composed several original scores. Following his service and early musical careers, Len graduated from Wilkes University, and followed with graduate work at both Penn State and William Paterson universities. He entered the field of education in the early 1950s, serving as band director at several Pennsylvania high schools, then moving to New Jersey in 1956, where he was a music teacher, and band director at the Curtis School in Wharton, N.J. His junior high school bands received numerous state and national awards, and appeared at venues such as the World’s Fair in Montreal, Canada, and state and national educators’ conventions in Atlantic City, N.J., and Boston. He served also as a Co-Director of the Mt. Tabor Band Group, one of the most prestigious amateur orchestras in the northern New Jersey area. Ultimately, he continued in the education field by becoming the Wharton Public Schools’ first director of pupil personnel services. While in this capacity, Len received accolades and awards for his efforts as an advocate for special needs children, helping transition many such students into high school and special school settings. He was also a retired member of the NEA, NJEA, and various other organizations. A bastion of wisdom, compassion, and generosity, Len will be missed by his friends and family, including son, Lee, and his wife, Carol, Flanders, N.J.; grandchildren, Taryn and her husband, Rob Gibson, Taylors, S.C.; Timothy, Flanders, N.J.; great-granddaughter, Shayla; and step-greatgranddaughter, Katelyn. Surely to miss Len will be his loving and faithful companion of 16 years, Elaine Takus, with whom he walked daily, hand in hand, through later life. A memorial service will be held at Dobies Funeral Home in Hudson, Fla., on Thursday. At a date to be determined, interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. In lieu of flowers, the family requests any memorial/donations be made in Len’s name to the American Heart Association.

Hughestown mulling ordinance to promote upkeep of properties By AMANDA MYRKALO Times Leader Correspondent

HUGHESTOWN -- Councilwoman Marie Griglock on Monday night proposed researching an ordinance such as those used by other municipalities concerning the repair of properties after a fire. The measure would promote the upkeep of properties in the borough. She mentioned ordinances that call for a percentage of the insurance for homeowners to be awarded after a property is repaired. This ordinance would compel property repairs within Hughestown, she said. Another ordinance discussed

at the meeting concerned the plan to merge the sewer systems of Pittston and Hughestown. Responding to resident questions, Mayor Paul Hindmarsh said the borough is working on an agreement with Pittston. Further plans will be developed after an agreement between the city and borough is complete. It was also announced that the Hughestown Hose Company will hold its Good Friday Fish Fry on April 22 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.. The event will include fried fish, pizza, raffles and the Easter Bunny. Tickets are $8 each.

Scranton Turkey Hill sells $1M ticket SCRANTON -- The Pennsylvania Lottery says that a $1 million winning Powerball ticket was sold at the Turkey Hill on Meridian Avenue in Scranton. The purchaser matched all five white balls -- 05-14-32-53-56 -- but not the red Powerball, which was 11 for Saturday night’s drawing. Because the buyer added Power Play for an extra $1, the winning ticket was guaranteed to be $1 million, less 25-percent federal withholding. Had the winner not paid that additional $1, the prize would have been $200,000. Only three tickets nationwide matched all five white balls without the red ball, and nobody

matched all six numbers. Turkey Hill, since it sold the winning ticket, will receive a $5,000 bonus. Winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery’s seven area offices. Claims may be filed at headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

LENAHAN & DEMPSEY WINS $1,200,000 JURY VERDICT IN MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CASE A Lackawanna County jury has awarded $1,200,000 to the family of a man who, while being treated for alcoholism, left the Marworth Treatment Center and was later found dead in the woods near the facility1. The case was tried by Attorney Joseph P. Lenahan of Lenahan & Dempsey. Attorney Lenahan has been selected to "Best Lawyers In AmericaÂŽ" and has been named a "Pennsylvania Super LawyerÂŽ" as published in Philadelphia Magazine2. Attorney Lenahan convinced the jury that Marworth,its medical director and nursing staff were negligent in the care of his client, a Heating and Air Conditioning repairman. "My client was a severe alcoholic and came to Marworth for help. In the less than 55 hours he spent there he managed to leave the facility several times while suffering from delirium tremors and hallucinations," said Lenahan. "We argued the facility did not meet acceptable standards of care in treating and keeping my client safe and the jury agreed." Attorney Joseph Lenahan

During the course of the almost 3 week trial, numerous expert witnesses, including a Marworth witness brought in from Harvard University testiďŹ ed. Lenahan said he has tremendous respect for the jury that heard the case, "This was a highly complex case. The jury was obviously deeply committed to their duty and my client's family and I cannot thank them enough for their dedicated service." Attorney Lenahan said he is pleased with the $1,200,000 verdict, "My client was never married and did not have any children.This money will not bring him back,but it will provide some closure to his parents and brothers and sister that their loved one's death may make the facility safer for others struggling with addiction."

Mother who confronted Ciavarella to testify today

Fonzo, who yelled at judge after trial, to appear before Pa. Senate judiciary board. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

HARRISBURG – A WilkesBarre woman who lashed out at former Judge Mark Ciavarella following his trial is scheduled to testify today before the state Senate’s judiciary committee regarding legislation that would impact the juvenile justice system. Sandy Fonzo will appear with state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, at a hearing to be held in the State Capitol building. The judiciary committee will discuss legislation Baker has proposed that would preclude juveniles from waiving their right to an attorney at juvenile court hearings. The legislation would also create a victim advocate devoted to juvenile justice, require judges to state on the re-

POLICE BLOTTER HANOVER TWP. – Albert Broody Jr., of Lyndwood Avenue, reported Sunday that the tail light on his vehicle was broken while it was parked in his driveway. WEST HAZLETON – State police at Hazleton continue to search for Albert Patrick Huff, 42, on charges that he wrote several bad checks for approximately $7,000 at lumber companies. Huff may have fled the area and family in the Hazleton area, state police said. State police allege Huff wrote checks on a closed checking account from Dec. 30, 2009, to Jan. 5, 2010, at Murphy Lumber Co., Dennison Township; Shelly’s Lumber, Foster Township; and

cord the reasons behind disposition orders, expedite appellate review of juvenile cases and prohibit shackling of juveniles in the courtroom. Fonzo gained national attention in February after she confronted Ciavarella outside the federal courthouse in Scranton following the conclusion of his trial on corruption charges. A jury found the former Luzerne County judge guilty of racketeering and other offenses relating to his acceptance of money from the builder of two juvenile detention centers the county utilized. Fonzo said her son, Edward Kenzakoski III, who killed himself last year, was never the same after Ciavarella jailed him as a juvenile for a minor offense. She has spoken to numerous media outlets regarding his case and is leading an effort to have residents write letters, urging U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik to impose a stiff sentence on Ciavarella. No date has been set for Ciavarella’s sentencing. Conyngham Builders, Sugarloaf Township, in the amount of $6,960. Huff operated a business named AK Construction and purchased large amounts of copper with the bad checks, state police said. Anyone with information about Huff is asked to contact Trooper James Surmick at state police at Hazleton at 459-3890. AVOCA – Police said they captured a man wanted on robbery charges in WilkesBarre after a hit-and-run crash in the 600 block of Main Street on Sunday. David Price Jr., 35, of Scranton, was captured after the crash. Price was wanted by city police on charges of robbery and simple assault. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility.

to charges filed. Gustavo Neives, 31, of Main Street, Jenkins Township, was arraigned Saturday by District Judge Michael Dotzel on charges of simple assault, cruelty to animals and resisting arrest. He was released on his own recognizance. According to the criminal complaint: Police investigated a disturbance at Neives’ residence and found him barricaded in a bedroom at about 9:30 p.m. April 5. Neives refused to come out of the bedroom and shouted profanities at officers. A friend convinced Neives to unlock the door. Police allege that when he did he charged at officers. An officer deployed his Taser eight times but it had no effect on Neives, who continued to be aggressive toward officers, the complaint says. Police said in the complaint that Neives had been taking bath salts for several days and appeared confused and agitated. There was large amounts of dog feces inside the house that contained four dogs, police said. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on April 19 before District Judge Diana Malast in Plains Township.

DEFECTIVE HIP IMPLANTS Don’t rely on the company who gave you a potentially defective hip implant to advise you on your legal rights!

DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has issued a worldwide recall of it’s ASRTM Acetabular System for Total Hip Replacement, after determining that these hip implants may fail at an alarming rate. The “metal-on-metal” composition of these implants can release particles into the patient, potentially causing serious and painful reactions — sometimes requiring complete revision surgery. Reportedly, Johnson & Johnson has been seeking medical releases from recipients so that their claims adjustors can speak with you directly and possibly take down statements without your having counsel present – an unwise action for any recipient to do. Having a defective hip implant in your body clearly demands having your own lawyer. You


must be very cautious with dealing with the manufacturer or its representative without proper legal representation. If you have a DePuy ASR TM product, please call us immediately, as there are time limits for filing a claim. You might already have problems with the implant about which you are unaware, so please contact us — and certainly do not forfeit your legal rights without talking to us.

President Trump? C’mon, get real


ONALD TRUMP. Really? The federal government is running out of money. The country’s armed forces are involved in three wars. And who is getting the most ink as a potential Republican presidential candidate? The Donald. Seriously? “I have never been so serious as I am now,” Trump says. “I have great respect for Donald Trump, but that’s the last thing the country needs is a showboat,” said Glenn Beck. Guess it takes one to know one. Beck appeared to be a potential candidate himself after holding that giant rally in Washington last year. But last week he was fired by Fox News for losing advertisers as well as audience share. Meanwhile, Fox News has signed up Trump to do a “Monday Mornings with Trump” segment on the show Fox & Friends. But Trump for presi-

dent? The thought cannot be dismissed. Not when the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll of expected Republican primary voters shows Trump tied for second place with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. But here’s the kicker: Trump leads the other contenders among Republicans who identify themselves as tea-party followers. You can’t help but draw a line from Trump’s appeal to tea-party folks to his remarks questioning Obama’s being born in the United States. It’s Trump’s attacks on Obama’s citizenship that signal the type of campaign he would run. It wouldn’t be about finding the truth; it would be about further dividing America. Here’s hoping those polls showing that’s the direction in which Republican voters are leaning are wrong. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Medical device tax will kill job growth in Pennsylvania RIGHT HERE IN Pennsylvania, we have the potential to create tens of thousands of additional jobs in the medical device industry and be a leader in the creation of life-saving technologies and products. Pennsylvania is the fourth-largest producer of medical devices in the country, and home to 576 medical device companies. The industry provides more than 100,000 jobs, and jobs in the medical device field pay 25 percent more than the average private sector job. But many of these well-paying jobs could be in danger, thanks to the health care bill. The law includes a new 2.3 percent tax on medical device companies’ total sales. This tax applies to a business’s revenue – not just profits – especially penalizing small, up-and-coming companies that haven’t yet broken even on investments. This tax will have a big impact on companies right in our backyards. For example, Chester County hosts one of the most innovative medical device companies in the state. Fujirebio Diagnostics is a world leader in the production of in-vitro diagnostics and biomarkers, helping doctors detect cancer faster. Their manufacturing facility employs 170 workers. In the Lehigh Valley, B. Braun is a major medical device company specializing in

am so excited! I just found out that the Keystone Active Zone Passport program will be starting on April 16, in time for us to enjoy the spring weather and celebrate Earth Day. My family participated last year and we had a wonderful time using it to explore Luzerne County’s treasure trove of fabulous, free, outdoor recreational resources throughout the spring and summer. The passport has something of interest for everyone: guided hikes and walks, river festivals and outdoor celebrations, fishing and boating clinics, municipal and state parks and miles and miles of trails. Most people I talked to about the passport had no idea there is so much to do right here at home. With gas prices going through the roof, you can use the passport to plan local, low-cost excursions that will entertain you, your family and friends; help improve your health and make you proud of where you live. Last year, I invited my New Jersey nephews to join us for the Family Paddling Day and they loved the experience. Our state parks offer a host of activities and envi-

ronmental education events open to all. My niece and I really enjoyed the walking history tours in Wilkes-Barre and my entire family loved the Earth Day events and hiking excursions. This program also coincides with the “get fit” movement because it promotes walking, hiking, swimming, boating and overall outdoor activity; something from which we can all benefit. My niece is trying to manage her weight and has become our fitness guru and this will help keep her motivated.

Music in the ’50s helped everyone stay fit, happy


n reflecting on the 1950s and today, as far as exercise: One of my friends pointed out a film of Bill Haley and His Comets in a dance room. Joyful teenagers were jitterbugging, swinging, dancing, jumping and having a nonstop, uninhibited good time. In the ’50s, no matter where you’d be, the radio would play Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and so on. When the radio or the jukebox was going, we’d dance on grass, sidewalks, down the halls, at home and at the center. There were no health spas, and we all kept in shape. We were neatly dressed and full of energy. We didn’t need narcotics and were all naturally high; that came from within, the same as fond memories. Joseph DeLucco Jr. Wilkes-Barre








GANGS Continued from Page 1A


A Valero gas station price board is shown Monday in front of a sign for an Economy Inn in San Francisco. With the price of gas above $3.50 a gallon in all but one state, there are signs that Americans are cutting back on driving.

all, Americans are paying roughly $340 million more per day to fill up than they did a year ago. Gas prices have shot up as unrest in North Africa and the Middle East rattled energy markets and increased global demand for crude oil squeezed supplies. A gallon of unleaded regular costs $3.77 on average, and only Wyoming has an average lower than $3.50. Gas is already 41 cents more expensive than at this point in 2008, when it peaked at $4.11 in July. Most analysts are sticking to forecasts of a high of $4 a gallon, though some have predicted $5. Across the country, some drivers are already hunting for cheaper gas, sometimes with the help of a mobile phone app. Others are checking out bus and train schedules, reconsidering mass transportation, or trading in their SUVs for more fuel-efficient models.

lar to those in the downtown theater complex on the opposite side of South Main Street. That project includes street-level retail space and upper-floor lofts that preserved the old building facades. Mayor Tom Leighton said government ownership of a third neighboring parcel should make the buildings more attractive to potential developers. Last month, the city purchased 71 S.

2007, when the national average approached $3 per gallon. Even if demand for gas keeps falling in the U.S., it probably won’t be enough to force the price down. That’s because worldwide demand for crude oil keeps rising. Global demand for oil is about 87 million barrels per day, matching its peak from 2007. It is expected to grow to more than 88 million barrels a day by year’s end, with most of the increase coming from China. At the same time, supply is shrinking because of uprisings in Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East. In the United States, people are watching their local gas stations a little more carefully. Some are even getting rid of their old gas-guzzler. Andrea Meyer of Manteno, Ill., has done both. She buys gas in the middle of the week because prices seem to jump over the weekend. And she recently sold her 2005 Chevy Envoy SUV and bought a 2011 Chevy Cruze, which gets 30 miles per gallon. She still spent about $200 on gas for the new car from midFebruary to mid-March. other states because of its unique and wide range of dresses, but Coffee said she’s embarrassed by the condition of some other buildings in the strip.

Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry Vice President Larry Newman said the city’s acquisition of another building in the row is a “step in the right direction.” He describes the facades in the row as “compelling” and “spectacular.” “I think that there’s an opportunity to really complement the public and private investment that has already occurred across the street and elsewhere in the city,” Newman said.

to make a profit,” he said. The Eastern Pennsylvania Drug Gang Threat Assessment prepared by the National Drug Intelligence Center outlines the growing problem of gang violence and drug trafficking. The report, done on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice, was generated upon the request of U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, who hasaskedfederalauthoritiestoprovideassistancetolocallawenforcement agencies. “In many eastern Pennsylvania communities, the nature of drug distribution by gangs that originated in the New York area has shifted fromoccasionalandtransientoperations to those that are more permanent and established,” the report says, noting gang members feel less law enforcement pressure in eastern Pennsylvania compared to a heavier authority presence in New York. The report also mirrors what the local drug agent explained. The agent said that “gang members often facilitate their transition from the New York City areas to smaller drug markets … by forming relationships with local females.” The local drug agent said there are too many small municipal police departments that do not have the manpower or money to conduct a long drug investigation. Coincidently, the Pennsylvania Economy League in a June 2010 report indicated Luzerne County municipalities are employing fewer full-time police officers at the same time the sale of illegal drugs is rampant. “In most of these towns, there is one cop on duty, and they’re usually busy with a domestic or a traffic stop,” the drug agent said. “When was the last time a single cop made a big bust? It doesn’t happen around here. And these gangs know it.”

BUDGET Continued from Page 1A

were for $38.5 billion over the next six months; the cuts envisioned now are for trillions of dollars over the next 10 years. Obama’s speech, to be delivered at George Washington University, comes as Congress readies for a fierce fight over raising the nation’s debt limit. Republicans have vowed to use that vote as leverage to extract greater budget discipline from the Democrats and the president. Setting the terms of the debate and the likely brinkmanship to follow, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Monday: "What I’m saying is that we support a clean piece of legislation to raise the debt ceiling. ... We cannot play chicken with the economy in this way." The president’s speech also comes amid liberal apprehension over recent Obama spending concessions and a desire among some Democrats to make proposed GOP cuts in Medicare a 2012 election issue. House Republicans, led by the chairman of the House Budget Committee, Paul Ryan, last week unveiled a plan that would cut $5.8 trillion over 10 years with a major restructuring of the nation’s signature health care programs for the elderly and the poor. Meanwhile, six senators have formed a bipartisan group to work on their own plan to rein in long-term deficits by making changes to Medicare and Medicaid and examining a fundamental overhaul of the tax system

CRIMINAL PROBES Recent investigations involving alleged gang members: • Operation Heavyweight, which was executed in October 2008 by the state Office of Attorney General, resulted in the break-up of the Long Island Boys and the Jersey City Boys, which sold millions of dollars of heroin in Wilkes-Barre, according to the AG’s office. Competition between the Long Island Boys and a Philadelphia gang for the heroin market in the Sherman Hills apartment complex led to violence, including the torture of a 15-year-old boy and the possible fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man in June 2008. Most of the gang members involved in the two gangs relocated to Wilkes-Barre from New York City, Patterson, N.J., and Newark, N.J. • Operation Bloodstain launched in October by the state Office of Attorney General resulted in charges filed against 17 people, nine of whom were allegedly associated with the Bloods street gang in New York City that distributed more than 1.5 million heroin packets with an estimated street value of $15 million. • A near fatal shooting outside a Plains Township nightclub in June involved rival gang members of the Crips and the Bloods, according to arrest records. Township police charged Jerayme Johnson, 24, an alleged Bloods member, with the shooting of Thomas Stephen Tonic, 19, outside Club Evolution at the Woodlands Inn & Resort on June 18. Arrest records say Tonic is associated with the Crips gang. Police allege Johnson sought retaliation after being told Tonic disrespected his girlfriend inside the nightclub. Johnson remains at-large.

that would yield additional revenue. Unlike the Republican plan, Obama is also expected to call for cuts in defense spending and for tax hikes, repeating his 2012 budget plan to increase Bush era tax rates for families making more than $250,000. Obama shelved that plan in a budget compromise with Republicans. The Republican plan, on the other hand, would make the Bush-era tax cuts permanent. The contrast the White House would like to pitch to the public is that Obama would help reduce the deficit by increasing taxes on the rich, while Republicans would pay for their tax cuts for the wealthy by making seniors pay more for their Medicare. Republicans on Monday said Obama’s speech was overdue. “I’m anxious to hear what the president has to say," House Speaker John Boehner said on Fox News. "We’ve been waiting for months for the president to enter into this debate with us. I can tell you that privately I’ve encouraged the president: ‘Mr. President, lock arms with me, let’s jump out of the boat together.’ ” The speech is expected to affirm Obama’s stand on the spending he is not willing to cut, chiefly in the areas of education, energy, infrastructure, research and innovation. On Medicare, the federal insurance program for senior citizens, the president is expected to explain his case for cost savings without putting “all the burden on seniors,” as his senior adviser David Plouffe put it.









Deliberation enters third day

The jury remains in discussion as the former Giants slugger awaits his fate on four felony charges. By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer


Pat Henry and Crestwood pushed Abington Heights to a fifth and final game in a 3-2 loss Monday.

Crestwood comes up just short

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds is going to have a longer wait for his verdict. The jury considering four felony counts against the home run king deliberated without a conclusion for the second day Monday. The eight women and four men, who started their discussions on Friday before a weekend break, will resume work Tuesday morning. The gap between closing arguments and verdict has grown longer than the

gap between Bonds’ record-tying and record-breaking home runs in 2007. The former MVP broke Hank Aaron’s home run record on Aug. 7 when he hit No. 756, three days after


the jury’s thoughts, the panel has made requests to rehear two pieces of evidence that both center on the injection count. On Friday, the jurors asked to hear a replay of the 2003 secret recording made by former Bonds business partner Steve Hoskins in which Anderson talks about injecting the slugger. Before the resumption of deliberations Monday, the panel spent 71 minutes hearing a clerk read back the March 31 testimony of Bonds’ former personal shopper Kathy Hoskins — Steve’s sister. She testified that she saw Anderson inject Bonds near the navel in 2002, becoming the only one of 25 witnesses at the trial to claim firsthand knowledge of Bonds being injected.

matching Aaron. Bonds, who also holds the singleseason home run mark of 73, is charged with three counts of making false statements to a grand jury in 2003 and one count of obstruction of justice. He’s accused of lying when he denied receiving steroids and human growth hormone from personal trainer Greg Anderson, and for saying he allowed only doctors to give him an injection.

Fighting back

Abington Heights takes the match, with all three game wins coming by the minimum two-point margin. By DAVE ROSENGRANT

WRIGHT TWP. — If anyone was doubting that Abington Heights and Crestwood were solid boys volleyball programs after strong early starts, they were proven incorrect Monday night. The Comet teams hooked up at Crestwood High School and put on a five-game show for fans with a total of 29 lead changes and 43 ties in those five games. Abington Heights ABINGTON came out on top 3-2, HEIGHTS winning games one (2523), three (25-23) and five (15-13) by a total of CRESTWOOD six points. Crestwood won games 2 and 4 by scores of 30-28 and 25-16, respectively. Abington entered with just one loss – a five-game setback to perennial District 2 Class 2A power North Pocono in five games – and with a win over last year’s District 2 Class 2A runner-up Coughlin. Crestwood entered unbeaten, including a win over the reigning District 2 Class 3A champion Hazleton Area. “We made it harder than it should have been,” Abington coach Dan Phillips said. “They’re a great team. We knew it was going to be a war coming in. “You got a lot of teams in this league that are comparable with each other and it’s all who’s going to play the best that night.” The first game of the match, both teams appeared a little rusty with several mishitsonbothsidesofthenet.Abington pulled out the victory with a kill from Roddy Geiger ending the set, which included five lead changes and six ties. Once the teams got rid of the openinggame jitters, they were nearly flawless in the final four games. The wildest set was the second as Abington and Crestwood went back-andforth with 21 ties and 11 lead changes,

Three second-half goals lift Grenadiers By JOHN ERZAR

WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Normally, a player going home sick from school is no big deal. Except in the case of the GAR girls soccer team, which has just 12 players on the roster. That left just 11 players to overcome a two-goal deficit Monday, yet the Grenadiers pulled it off for their first victory of the season. Alicia Riggsbee scored what proved to be the game-winner with about 15 minutes left and GAR held off one final Tunkhannock rally attempt for a 3-2 victory in a Wyoming Valley Confer-


ence Division 2-B game. GAR “It was definitely morale booster,” GAR first-year coach TUNKHANNOCK Stephanie Frank said. “It feels really good. It’s our first home game and only our third time up here on the field, too. It’s good to feel the first ‘W.’” It didn’t appear GAR (1-2) was heading to victory. Janel Kalmanowicz scored an early goal for Tunkhannock (0-1), and the Tigers went up 2-0 when Brielle Sherman scored about 12 minutes into the second half.


“It was really rough for us, especially being one person down,” GAR midfielder Emilee Bubblo said. “We only had 11 players and no subs.” And the way Tunkhannock was peppering GAR keeper Julianna Leco, it seemed a matter of time before the Tigers scored again. Twice in the first half, they had shots hit off the crossbar. GAR’s Kaleigh Bubblo quickly reversed what looked like dire circumstances, scoring 31 seconds after Sherman’s goal. “That boosted us a lot,” Riggsbee said, “because we knew we had a See GAR, Page 6B

The man who makes a habit of winning big


rom the day John Hynes took over as head coach of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, it was never about winning it all, winning a division or even winning the game. It was only about winning the moment. That’s why the Penguins wound up winning more games than anyone else in the AHL and more in one season than any team in franchise history before them. “It starts with establishing good habits, first and foremost,” Hynes said, diagramming his coaching philosophy the way he’d draw up a power play. “Then you want to be a tough and hard team to play against.” The Penguins, who skate into the AHL Playoffs at 58-21-0-1, were the most difficult team to beat because they don’t beat themselves. They play tenacious defense, go non-stop on offense and boast the best goaltending tandem around in Brad Thiessen and John Curry. But effort and skill alone don’t always make a season special. It takes a top coach to put a team over the top. “All year, the guys have been on the same page,” Penguins center and fan favorite Zach Sill said. “That’s a tribute to the way he (Hynes) coaches and the leadership in the room.” The leadership for the Penguins starts with the young man standing behind the bench. At the age of 36, Hynes took over the Penguins this season as a rookie head coach in the AHL only – he had plenty of experience coaching in the United States National Team Developmental Program and in IIHF International play. His Under-18 national teams won gold, silver and bronze medals. It’s not hard to see why, as Hynes takes tremendous pride in teaching hockey. Whether he’s working with kids or working the Penguins to first place, there’s no kidding around when it comes to proper execution. No wonder he won the AHL award for this season’s outstanding coach. “There’s not a day that goes by where he’s not competitive,” Penguins forward Ryan Schnell said. “Every team function, he wants to win.” Mainly, he wants his players to show winning play, whether or not that means victory at the end of the night. “He does things to make you better,” Schnell said. “Doesn’t matter if it’s 4-on-4 in practice, an off day or a work day. If you even slip up for a second, he’s on you.” It’s why the Penguins are on course right now to win the first Calder Cup in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s 13-year history, with home-ice advantage locked up throughout the playoffs. That accomplishment seems amazing, considering the Penguins regularly shuffled their roster throughout the season – and lost their top seven scoring forwards to parent Pittsburgh at one time. They still kept going, non-stop. “The regular season is building hits and building a mindset and building a culture that needs to come out in the playoffs,” Hynes said. It is there where having Hynes, well on his way to being the best coach Wilkes-Barre/Scranton ever had, can pay dividends for the Penguins. “I think it’s just an ingredient that’s been missing here,” Schnell said of the style Hynes brings to the Penguins. “Teams before us have made cases for themselves in the playoffs, teams that were close. “I think guys, when they are here, expect to win every night.” They win the play, win the shift, then win the game. It’s the perfect strategy and mindset to win a Calder Cup.

Vazquez hits two homers in rout of Rochester By JIM MANDELARO For The Times Leader

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Jorge Vazquez knows he may have a long wait if he plans on playing in the Bronx. The native of Mexico plays first and third base, positions currently held by New York Yankees superstars Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez. But while he’s waiting, Vazquez will swing for the fences. And Monday night, he connected twice. Vazquez drilled two long home runs in the first two innings, powering the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees past the Red Wings 11-0 at Frontier Field. “I’ve seen that guy for the past three years,’’ Wings manager Tom Nieto said. “He has only improved.’’





Wind gusts topped 30 mph, and Vazquez ripped a three-run shot to left in the first inning off Andy Baldwin and a two-run blast to right-center in the second. Greg Golson added a two-run shot in the fourth. Nieto didn’t believe the wind had anything to do with the long balls, and Vazquez wasn’t saying. “Sometimes it helps,’’ he said through an interpreter, Yankees infielder Ramiro Pena. “But a

homer is a homer.’’ Vazquez beat the Red Wings on Sunday as well, breaking a 5-5 tie with a two-run homer in the eighth inning. He has 27 RBI in16 career games against Rochester. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre has hit nine homers in the first three games of the series. Vazquez, who turned 29 last month, spent nine seasons playing in his native Mexico before joining the Yankees’ farm system in 2009. After missing the first half of the 2010 season following an appendectomy, he hit .329 with 13 home runs and 56 RBI in 57 games with Double-A Trenton. Last year, he hit .284 with 18 homers and 68 RBI in 86 games at Trenton and Scranton/WilkesBarre. He also was named MVP of the Caribbean World Series in


Mets can’t climb Rockies The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Troy Tulowitzki homered and drove in three runs, Carlos Gonzalez also had three RBIs and the Colorado Rockies took advantage of a struggling New York Mets bullpen in a 7-6 victory Monday night. Tulowitzki made a terrific jump throw from shortstop to preserve a seventh-inning tie and Seth Smith reached base four times, including on a triple and a double. The Rockies improved to 7-2, with the only two losses coming in extra innings, to match the best nine-game start in franchise history. Jason Hammel pitched six respectable innings and Colorado took the opener of a fourgame series, winning its third straight road game. The Rockies are 4-1 away from Coors Field after going 31-50 on the road last year. The NL West leaders even found a way to win in New York. They are 5-23 on the road against the Mets since 2003, dropping eight consecutive series. David Wright hit his second homer and Willie Harris had a two-run double for New York, which has lost four of five following a three-game winning streak. Jose Reyes tripled twice for the fifth time in his career. Trailing by three, the Mets mounted a rally in the eighth. Wright led off with a homer against Rafael Betancourt and Carlos Beltran doubled. A runscoring single by Ike Davis cut it to 7-6, but Betancourt retired the next three batters. Huston Street worked a perfect ninth for his fifth save in five chances. Matt Belisle (2-0) got the final two outs in the seventh, with some help from Tulowitzki. Reyes tripled with two outs and Daniel Murphy hit a grounder toward the hole at shortstop. Tulowitzki, a Gold Glove winner last year, fielded the ball on his backhand and jumped, twisting his body in the air to make a strong, accurate throw to first for the third out. Dexter Fowler singled off Bobby Parnell (0-1) to open the eighth and moved to third on a sacrifice and a wild pitch. Gonzalez hit a comebacker and Parnell had a good chance to get Fowler at the plate, but he threw over the head of catcher Josh Thole. Gonzalez was credited with an RBI on the fielder’s choice and he went to second on the error. Tulowitzki followed with a loud shot to left for his fourth homer and a 7-4 lead. It was the second time in the game that a Mets reliever threw

HOUSTON -- Chicago jumped out to a 5-0 lead and held on for the victory. Ryan Dempster picked up the win, going 6 1/3 innings. Rays 16, Red Sox 5

BOSTON — Sam Fuld went 4 for 6 with a two-run homer, drove in three runs and fell a single shy of the cycle to help the Tampa Bay Rays bust out of an early season slump with a 16-5 win over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night. Johnny Damon had three hits, including a solo homer, and three RBIs, and John Jaso and Reid Brignac also drove in three runs apiece for the Rays. Tampa Bay came in hitting a major-league worst .163 and had scored just 20 total runs, the fewest after nine games since the 2003 Detroit Tigers — a team that finished 43-119. Boston’s loss came in Carl Crawford’s first game against his former team. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a solo homer for the Red Sox. Crawford, who spent 12 years in the Rays’ organization, went 2 for 5, raising his average to .163.

Michael Young and Mitch Moreland hit RBI doubles in the seventh inning as the AL champions improved to 9-1, the top record in the majors. Texas equaled the start of its 1989 club. Ogando (2-0) gave up just two hits, walked one and struck four over seven innings in his second start in the majors. The converted reliever had his outing cut short by fluid under a callus on his right index finger — he pitched six scoreless innings last week with a developing blister on the same finger. Verlander (1-1) lost despite pitching a six-hitter. Athletics 2, White Sox 1

DETROIT — Alexi Ogando outpitched Justin Verlander before leaving with a finger problem and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers to match the best 10-game start in team history.

CHICAGO — Kurt Suzuki hit a go-ahead home run in the 10th inning, and the Oakland Athletics capitalized on Juan Pierre’s dropped fly ball in the ninth to rally to a victory over the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox wasted a dominant pitching performance by Mark Buehrle with their second ninth-inning implosion of the season. Buehrle was lifted after eight scoreless innings and 99 pitches. He allowed only three baserunners — none past first base. Matt Thorton, who already had two blown saves in two opportunities, came on and allowed a leadoff double to Andy LaRoche in the ninth. One out later, Daric Barton hit a deep fly that Pierre dropped in the left-field corner, allowing pinch-runner Cliff Pennington to easily score from second and tie the game 1-1.

case,” said legal observer Joshua Berman, a former prosecutor who is now a criminal defense attorney in Washington D.C. However, it’s impossible to discern how many of the 12 jurors are focusing on that testimony and whether they feel the injection answer was material, or in

layman’s terms, important, to the grand jury’s investigation. To convict Bonds of making a false statement, the jury must find both that what Bonds said was a lie and one that had an effect on the grand jury. Anderson was jailed during the trial because he refused to testify.

February and hit a homer over the 400-foot center field batter’s eye at the Yankees’ spring-training park in Tampa. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman calls Vazquez “a major-league bat” but quickly adds that his road to The Show is blocked. Vazquez takes it in stride. “I have to play hard and see what happens,” he said. “It’s a long season, and there are more teams than just the Yankees.” Yankees right-hander D.J. Mitchell worked out of trouble in the bottom of the second. With runners at the corners and two outs, he struck out Chase Lambin on a 3-2 changeup to end the threat. The Yankees struck again in the fourth. Greg Golson hit a tworun homer to center, and another

Nanticoke wins battle of Bertonis

Mountaineers also triumph, beat Tunkhannock Dallas is 2-0, while Tunkhannock is 1-1 The Tigers’ victory came last week against Berwick.

The Times Leader staff

WRIGHT TWP. — Sarah Bertoni pitched a three-hitter and had two singles to lead Nanticoke Area to a 2-1 victory over Crestwood in Wyoming Valley Conference Division I softball action on Monday. It wasn’t just another game for Bertoni, a senior who helped lead Nanticoke to the PIAA Class 2A state championship last year. It marked the first time that she went up against her father, Bob, who is the new Crestwood head coach. “It felt different, of course,” Sarah said. “However, it was a lot of fun. He teased me a little before the game started and then again after it was over. We were both cracking jokes.” Sarah admitted that she felt a bit awkward seeing her dad coach third base for the opposing team, but once she got into a pitching rhythm, she concentrated on the game. “Crestwood has a very good team,” she said. “They have an excellent defense. I think they’re going to go far. Bob Bertoni said he was a bit nervous. “It was a little different, but once the game started we both knew our roles,” he said. “She wanted to beat my team as bad as I wanted to beat their team. I was definitely able to concentrate on my team.” Bertoni formerly coached the Nanticoke baseball team before becoming the Crestwood softball coach this season. His wife, Eileen, was sort of caught in the middle on Monday. “I was a little bit on edge,” she said. “It’s Sarah’s last year, so I rooted for her. I was happy for both of them. We (Nanticoke) have a great team, but my husband’s a great coach.”

WILKES-BARRE — Gabby Ford and Keri Meerholz each scored four times and 11 other Lady Colonels recorded a goal as Wilkes handled Rosemont 21-4 in a women’s lacrosse match Monday at the Ralston Athletic Complex. It is believed to be the first time in Wilkes program history that every player on the roster scored at least once. Meerholz also added two assists to score six total points in the game and her 10 draw controls tied the school record that Ford set earlier this season against Manhattanville. Ford also finished with 10 ground balls, which ties her own season-high and is just one shy of the Wilkes record. Wilkes totaled 49 ground balls as a team, breaking the previous record of 45 set in 2006 against Lycoming.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The federal judge handling the lawsuit against the NFL ordered the sides to participate in court-supervised mediation, while saying Monday she still is considering whether to grant the players’ request for a preliminary injunction to lift the lockout. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson said formal mediation will begin Thursday before Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan at his office in a Minneapolis courthouse. He will meet with representatives of the players Tuesday, then representatives of the NFL on Wednesday. The sides tried mediation before, negotiating for 16 days in Washington with Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service director George Cohen. But those talks broke off March 11, allowing the old collective bargaining agreement to expire. The NFL Players Association dissolved that day, saying it no longer would represent players

A new Derby Factor to consider By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer

As Uncle Mo was finishing third in the Wood Memorial at Aqueduct over the weekend, race caller Tom Durkin exclaimed ... “and the Kentucky Derby is up for grabs!” It sure is. With Uncle Mo losing for the first time, there’s a new No. 1 in The Associated Press’ latest Run to the Roses Top 10 list of Derby contenders: The Factor. The speedy 3-year-old gray colt moves up from No. 3 and could wind up as the Derby favorite May 7 if he wins the $1 million Arkansas Derby on Saturday. The Factor has won his last three starts going wire-to-wire. “He just goes and does his thing,” said Bob Baffert, who trains The Factor. “He’s one dimensional, for sure.” Baffert has won the Derby three times. His most recent winner, War Emblem, won in 2002 going wire-to-wire. Wood winner Toby’s Corner moves into the Top 10 for the first time at No. 6, with Baffert’s Midnight Interlude at No. 8 after winning the Santa Anita Derby. Uncle Mo slips to No. 3. Florida Derby winner Dialed In remains No. 2. Two promising prospects sustained injuries last week and are out of the Derby — San Felipe

in bargaining under labor law. That allowed players — including MVP quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning — to file a class-action antitrust suit against the league in federal court. The owners then locked out the players, creating the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987. Nelson ordered Monday that both sides keep the mediation confidential. NFLPA spokesman George Atallah declined comment. At a hearing last week about the injunction request, Nelson urged the sides to get “back to the table” and said negotiations should take place at “not the players’ table, not the league’s table, but a neutral table, if you will.” The next day, the players and owners both expressed a willingness to talk — but they disagreed on where and how they wanted to do it. The players said they were willing to engage in mediation overseen by Nelson.

The NFL, though, said it wanted to resume talks with Cohen. She said at the hearing she would take “a couple of weeks” to rule on the injunction. On Monday, she noted that her order to resume mediation “will not have the effect of a stay on this litigation,” and that she would rule “in due course.” She also said that “the fact of participation in this Court-ordered mediation, and any communications conveyed between the parties in this process, shall not be admitted or used against any party in any other proceeding or forum, for any purpose.” That addresses the players’ concern that any new negotiations would not be considered the NFLPA returning to union status. Nelson also combined the lawsuits involving current and former players earlier Monday. Neither the Brady plaintiffs nor the NFL objected to combining the cases, according to a court document.

BRISTOL, Conn. — Maya Moore is used to winning titles at Connecticut. Now she’s ready to bring that same mentality to her new team — the Minnesota Lynx, who took her with the first pick in the WNBA Draft on Monday. “Every year the goal is a championship,” she said. “That’s what I expect. I go on to every team expecting to win a championship, especially with the amount of talent we have. “I don’t want to limit to the playoffs, I want to win a championship.” She helped UConn win a record 90-straight games during one stretch over the past two seasons, and also led the school

today,” Pletcher said the day after the race. “He did grab his quarter at the start of the race but it is very minor and insignificant. It was not a typical Uncle Mo performance.” Plans remain for Uncle Mo to be shipped to Churchill Downs on April 18 to begin final preparations for the 11⁄4-mile Derby. Santa Anita Derby runner-up Comma to the Top is a Derby contender again, the Daily Racing Form reports. The news comes a week after trainer Peter Miller said he had concerns whether the gelding could get the Derby distance. “That’s something you can only deal with by putting yourself in the water and learning how to swim,” Watson told the Wall Street Journal. “The pressure was always there for me. I couldn’t relieve it.” Just listen to some other former greats on how pressure affected them: “Everybody has their choking point,” Johnny Miller recently told golf blogger Stephanie Wei. At the 1971 Bing Crosby at Pebble Beach, Miller was paired with Jack Nicklaus in the final round and lost after badly cold-shanking a 7-iron on the 16th hole. “I won like 35 tournaments around the world after that and never once did I not think about it on Sunday afternoon, ‘You’re not going to shank it like you did at the Bing Crosby, are you?’ ” Miller said. “That shows how powerful failure under pressure is.” Nicklaus recently told of listening to Bobby Jones explain how it had taken him seven years and some hard lessons before he could correct himself in mid-round, instead of being nursed by his coach, Stewart Maiden. “Until I learned — and he taught me how not to run back to him, when I did that — then I became a golfer,” Jones told Nicklaus. No doubt some of these thoughts, maybe all of them, will help guide McIlroy through the difficult stage he’s in — that horribly impatient time when a player can hardly wait to win that first big title. McIlroy seems destined to win. He’s an explosive player who swings the club at 120 miles per hour, which makes him at just 5-feet-9 one of the longest players in the world, and he’s clearly a blazing talent. All he needs now is some good sense and sound decision-making, a little painfully-acquired know-how. He already has the attitude. Sally Jenkins is a columnist for the Washington Post.

Moore, a four-time All-American, averaged 22.8 points this season. She was also the only collegian to play on the U.S. women’s national team that won gold at the world championships last October. The two-time AP player of the year is used to having a lot of pressure put on her. “I think I live in the land of high expectations after playing at Connecticut,” Moore said. She is also the second straight UConn player to be taken with the first pick in the draft, and fourth overall.

Howard dominant in return

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Dwight Howard returned from suspension to score 19 points, grab 13 rebounds and lead the Orlando Magic to a 95-85 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night. Howard served an NBA suspension Sunday after picking up his 18th technical foul. He wasn’t bothered by the refs — or the Sixers — in his return. Howard dominated the boards with no one in the undersized Sixers lineup able to stop his one-handed jams and alley-oops. Ryan Anderson had 18 points and 14 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson scored 19 points for the Magic, who had a 23-rebound edge at one point in the second quarter and used a 16-2 run in the third to shake off the pesky Sixers. Bobcats 105, Nets 103 NEWARK, N.J. — D.J. Augustin hit a jumper with 1.1 seconds remaining, leading the Charlotte Bobcats to a victory over the New Jersey Nets. Nets guard Sasha Vujacic, who finished with 19 points, hit a long 3-pointer to tie the game at 103 with 10.9 seconds remaining. Heat 98, Hawks 90 ATLANTA — LeBron James scored 34 points and Miami held on for a win over the Atlanta Hawks, who nearly rallied from a 20-point deficit while playing their backups against the Big Three in the fourth quarter. Wizards 95, Celtics 94 WASHINGTON — The Boston Celtics didn’t play four of their usual starters, essentially setting aside their bid for a better playoff seed for the chance to give their top players some rest, and the result was a overtime loss to the Washington Wizards on Monday night that handed the Miami Heat the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference. Jazz 90, Hornets 78 NEW ORLEANS — C.J. Miles and Devin Harris each scored 18 points, and the Utah Jazz defeated the New Orleans Hornets. Cavaliers 110, Pistons 101 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Daniel Gibson scored 17 points, including a five-point play late in the third quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Detroit Pistons in a testy game in which Charlie Villanueva and Ryan Hollins were ejected. Bucks 93, Raptors 86 MILWAUKEE — Brandon Jennings broke free for three straight fast-break scores to give Milwaukee the lead in the fourth quarter, and the Bucks held on to beat the undermanned Toronto Raptors.

ing for him, one way or the other. Game 1 is on Wednesday. “To me, he’s playing, period,” Lightning coach Guy Boucher told reporters in Tampa. “But we can’t say if he’s not (playing), they don’t have a great team. They’re a great team. With him, they’re an amazing team. We’re playing against a great or amazing team, so we have to be at our best.” The Penguins had their bouts with inconsistency during Crosby’s absence, but in the regular season’s final week, they turned it up. Of course, in their final three games, they did not play a single

team that advanced to the postseason. But they did win them all, defeating the Devils, Islanders and Thrashers by scoring 13 goals combined. Along the way, though, the focus was still on Crosby. “We’ve said it before and continue to say it, he has a couple more steps to go in his rehabilitation before he can even think about returning to play,” Bylsma said on Friday. “I don’t know how fast that’s going to happen, I don’t know if that’s going to happen. There’s no way to even make a timetable. And considering that he has two more steps to go

through, it would seem like anything in the immediate future is out of the question.” Neither team practiced on Monday, but the captain is bound to come up again on Tuesday, when the Penguins begin their Game 1 preparations. Despite missing half of the season, Crosby led the Penguins in goals (32) and points (66). “Again, his interaction is with the doctors, not with the coaching staff or training staff,” Bylsma said. “So he gets his daily activity and progression from somewhere else, not us.” The two teams split the season

eventually pulled out by Crestwood in overtime, 30-28. Jake Prohaska (10 blocks, five digs, five points) led the way for Crestwood in the stanza with four of his match-high 20 kills. “It was an awesome match,” Crestwood coach Mike Williams said. “I think we got better today. This is one of the top teams in the conference and we knew coming in it was going to be tough and we stuck with them. We had a chance to win. A couple mental mistakes, but we played awesome.” Game 3 went to Abington Heights by the minimum two points as lefthander James Connolly (13 kills, 10 service points, four digs) blasted more than a third of his team-high kills in the match in the third game when he posted five. The largest margin for Abington (5-1) was three points in the game, but Crestwood only led once by one and couldn’t overtake the lead. The fourth game was all Crestwood (5-1). After a slow start had Crestwood up 6-5, it went on an impressive 19-11 run to force the fifth game with the 25-16 win. Williams smelled victory at that point and Phillips was concerned. “I think we all kind of thought we had it after Game 4,” Williams said. “Then when they jumped out on us we got the jitters and we had a couple mistakes here and there.” “Yeah I was definitely concerned,”Phillipssaid.“It’sniceto win the first game but then when you second, the door’s open it’s even Steven now. Once you drop one game you’re worried.” But after another seesaw game with 10 ties and nine lead changes, Abington came out victorious with another two-point victory, 15-13 as senior Andrew McLane (12 kills, 18 service points, 4 aces) clinched the win with a kill at the end. Eric Wasser (30 assists, two kills, six points) and Drew Shumaker (eight kills, three points, three blocks) also helped in Abington’s victory. “I’m happy with the win, just

chance to win.” Riggsbee proved that in the 59th minute, tying the score 2-2 by taking advantage of a defensive breakdown in the penalty area to connect on a liner. Home-field advantage might have played a part in Riggsbee’s goal. GAR’s field is among the smallest in the WVC and it allowed defender Caitlyn Kovach to launch a long clearing pass to Riggsbee. Riggsbee was able to run onto the ball and scored with just under 15 minutes remaining. Tunkhannock didn’t let the final minutes pass by without trepidation for GAR. The Tigers hit the crossbar for a third time and had a couple solid opportunities broken up by GAR’s Bri Majikes and Ashley Maloney. “For one, we don’t have any subs,” Kaleigh Bubblo said. “For a person who has to run the whole field at center mid, at times you just want to give up. Because that’s what I wanted to do so many times. But then I look at my teammates who are trying and it makes me want to do harder. “Once we scored that first goal, that was it.”

Cherry Hills to host 2014 BMW Championship The Associated Press

Cherry Hills Country Club has notified its members that the famed Colorado course will host the 2014 BMW Championship. The Associated Press on Monday obtained a copy of an email sent to members outlining that

Cherry Hills entered a contract to host the BMW Championship from Sept. 1-7, 2014. The BMW Championship, which has long been played in Chicago, is the third in a series of four FedEx Cup playoff events. Cherry Hills officials did not return messages left by the AP

on Monday. A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday with club president John Elway, though details were not revealed. The Chicago Tribune first reported the championship was leaving Chicago for Cherry Hills, which is in the Denver metropolitan area.

Walker expected to announce decision today The Associated Press

STORRS, Conn. — Connecticut has called a news conference for Tuesday with guard Kemba Walker, where it is expected the junior star will announce that he will enter the NBA draft. Walker, who led UConn to its third national championship, is projected as a firstround pick and coach Jim Calhoun has said he has advised Walker to forgo his senior season. But with a lockout looming,

Walker has so far left his options open. “It would be a lot of fun if I came back,” he said last week. “These guys are my brothers and I love them. So, if I have an opportunity to come back, it would be special.” Walker averaged almost 24 points and five assists per game in leading UConn to a 32-9 record, including an 11-0 run through the postseason. He accounted for 45 percent of his team’s points.















Tandem racing expected to take over Talladega

ent, the competition level went up. It’s different. But, generally speaking, if competition goes up, the races are exciting, we’re going to like it.” So aside from a reduction in the size of the horsepower-sapping restrictor plate, NASCAR has done very little to force drivers to race any differently this weekend at Talladega. “We’re going to see that same style draft,” said Kurt Busch, who won two exhibition races leading into the Daytona 500. “The two-car draft is just so potent. Anytime you can tell a race car driver he can go four seconds faster a lap and give him the recipe on how to do it, he’s going to go and put it into play. That’s that two-car draft.” It made Daytona interesting, and not all the drivers enjoyed that intrigue. “You can’t see where you’re going if you’re the pusher,” said

There is one caveat that could change the racing a little: Talladega is wider than Daytona, and many drivers believe the track has enough space for the cars to go four-wide. It could lead to more room for drivers to swap the lead, and more space for a fast-closing tandem to get past a slower two-car pack. It’s for sure not going to be the kind of Talladega racing people are used to. That doesn’t mean, however, that it won’t be a thrilling race.

Mark Martin. “If you’re in front, sometimes you wish you couldn’t see where you were going. It’s pretty tough on you sometimes when you’re running up traffic and you have a guy pushing you that doesn’t really see that. “We have to trust each other. We have to. Like them or not, you have to.” Dale Earnhardt Jr. said he didn’t like relying on others. “I’d rather have control of just what I’ve got to do,” he said. “Having to have responsibility for someone else is a little bit more than I care to deal with.”

dega were known as the two tracks where fans could expect the massive accidents created by pack racing known as “The Big One.” Daytona still had crashes — there were a record 16 cautions — but that didn’t satisfy many fans who couldn’t get their heads around the two-car tandem racing. NASCAR officials felt the same at the start of Speedweeks, and issued a series of slight technical adjustments designed to prevent the cars from pushing each other for too long. Like everyone else, NASCAR was unsure of how the Daytona 500 would play out, but was ultimately pleased with what officials saw. “We were curious, too. It was a phenomenon, we’d never seen anything like that,” said NASCAR chairman Brian France. “But 74 lead changes, dramatic racing all the way through, although it looked a little bit differ-

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Talladega Superspeedway has long been celebrated for its 500 miles of white-knuckle racing, the kind of bumper-to-bumper action that keeps fans on their feet from flag to flag. Those in attendance used to fret that even if they stepped away for a moment they might miss something monumental. Now the fretting seems to be on the style of racing fans will see Sunday when NASCAR shifts to one of its most revered race tracks. Two-car tandems took over the season-opening Daytona 500, where the huge pack of cars broke apart as drivers realized that the fastest way around the superspeedway was with just one partner. There were very few slingshots through the field, the way Dale Earnhardt Jr. did in 2010 when he charged from 10th to second over the final two laps. There were, of course, a record

74 lead changes among 22 drivers, and NASCAR welcomed a fresh-faced new star in 20-yearold Trevor Bayne, the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history. But the overwhelming discussion was about the new style of racing, which mimicked a game of leapfrog, in which two drivers hooked up, took turns pushing each other to the front, then swapped the lead when their engines got too hot from all that pushing. Many fans fear a repeat of that racing at Talladega, and by every indication, that’s exactly what they’ll see. “We’ll be doing the same thing we did at Daytona,” said onetime Talladega winner Tony Stewart. “I guarantee you right off the bat, that’s exactly what everybody is going to do as soon as they hit the racetrack — go right back into that mode.” It’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s just different. For years, Daytona and Talla-

Reacting to Alcoa Alcoa didn’t give investors the start they wanted for first-quarter earnings reports. The aluminum maker, the first of the Dow stocks to report, said revenue totaled $5.96 billion. That was less than the $6.16 billion financial analysts expected. Investors sent Alcoa down in after-hours stock trading. If this disappointment has soured them on upcoming earnings from other companies, look for stocks to fall today. But remember, there are weeks of reports to come.

The International Energy agency releases its monthly report on the world’s energy supply and demand. Look for the price of oil, which has gone as high as $113 a barrel, to move sharply higher or lower if the report has any surprises. Investors will want to hear about the impact of continuing unrest in Libya on oil inventories. And longer-term, they’ll want to know about rising demand as the global economy keeps expanding.

Capriotti’s is expanding The owners of Capriotti’s, a banquet facility in Tresckow, have announced that they’re constructing a new larger facility at the entrance of the McAdoo Industrial Park. That park is owned by Hazleton-based economic development corporation CAN DO. The new venue will be called Capriotti’s Palazzo, and the current Capriotti’s will close when the new location opens. The target opening date is in December. Capriotti’s partners Thomas Trella and Robert Veet said the 10,000-squarefoot catering hall will seat up to 375 people. The current facility seats 250 and has 4,200 square feet of space. The new establishment will employ 20 to 30 people, an increase in the current work force at Capriotti’s.


INDIANAPOLIS — Tenet Healthcare has charged rival hospital operator Community Health Systems with systematically bilking Medicare and the burgeoning legal fight sent shares of the entire sector plummeting Monday. The charges come months after Community launched a $3 billion hostile takeover bid for Tenet. The Dallas company said it uncovered overbilling by Community Health while researching the offer, which Tenet has already rejected. Tenet Healthcare Corp. claims that Community Health Systems Inc. has

squeezed more money out of Medicare by admitting thousands of patients to its hospitals instead of just keeping them for observation. That sent ripples through the industry, with investors growing antsy over the possibility that the charges from Tenet have invited the prying eyes of federal regulators. “The whole industry is trading down today because people are worried about an open-ended investigation,” said Oppenheimer analyst Michael Wiederhorn. Community Health has made a big push to get a foothold in Northeast Pennsylvania in the past three years. It purchased the Wyoming Valley

Health Care System, which included Wilkes-Barre General Hospital; First Hospital, Kingston; and several other ancillary facilities for $271 million on May 1, 2009. Then just last month a Lackawanna County judge approved the $150 million sale of Scranton’s Mercy Hospital; Mercy Tyler Hospital, Tunkhannock; and Mercy Special Care Hospital, Nanticoke, and affiliated facilities to Community Health. The system has had issues with unions at multiple hospitals it owns, including Wilkes-Barre General. But the allegations made by Tenet go far beyond labor practices.

Fund warns about oil prices The International Monetary Fund is warning that the world is facing new threats from surging oil prices, Mideast turmoil, higher inflation in China and Europe’s debt woes. But the IMF says the new troubles should not be severe enough to derail the recovery from the worst global recession since World War II. In a new economic forecast, the IMF says the global economy should grow 4.4 percent this year.

Disney reopens after quake Tokyo Disney Resort in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, will resume operations Friday after being closed since the March 11 earthquake, the amusement park’s operator Oriental Land Co. said. But given the electricity shortage caused by power plant shutdowns in the wake of the March 11 disaster, Tokyo Disneyland will not operate after 6 p.m. for the time being. Hotels around the amusement park will likely also return to full operations gradually, sources said. The park operator said it has put off the reopening of Tokyo Disney Sea, a separate amusement park adjacent to Tokyo Disneyland, until late this month at the earliest.

Tenet said in a complaint filed Monday that it estimates improper Medicare billings of between $280 million and $377 million over three years, beginning in 2006, for as many as 82,000 patients. “(Community) artificially increases inpatient admissions for the purpose of receiving substantially higher and unwarranted payments from Medicare and other sources,” Tenet said. Community adamantly rejected those claims, saying that Tenet wants to distract shareholders from its pending offer. “Its actions today prove that Tenet has adopted a ‘scorched earth’ defense without regard for the best interests of shareholders,” Community Health said.

Flowers buys Tasty Baking Flowers Foods Inc. is buying Tasty Baking Co., maker of Tastykakes, for about $34.4 million in cash. Thomasville, Ga.-based Flowers, a packaged bakery foods maker whose brands include Nature’s Own and Whitewheat, said Monday that the deal will expand its geographic reach, bring in new customers and broaden its snack product line. Philadelphia-based Tasty, whose line of packaged sweets includes Kandy Kakes and Krimpets, will become part of Flowers’ direct-store-delivery business. Founded in 1914, Tasty Baking is one of the most well-known brands in the City of Brotherly Love. Both companies’ boards have unanimously approved the deal. The acquisition is expected to close during the second quarter.


Tenet, Community Health fight gets nasty By TOM MURPHY AP Business Writer


So how big is the appetite for U.S. goods overseas? And the demand here for foreign products? The Commerce Department’s February trade report will show if the U.S. kept exporting goods at record levels. An increase will be a boon for U.S. manufacturers and the overall economy. Rising imports will also point to a growing economy – but they will also reflect the sharply higher price of oil.

An employee directs a customer inside a Wal-Mart store in Alexandria, Va. , in 2010. Wal-Mart is launching a national TV ad campaign that will highlight its renewed focus on low prices.

Focus on low prices By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is hammering home its low-price message with a new ad campaign in a bid to bring back customers who no longer trust it to save them money. The new campaign bears the slogan “Low Prices. Every Day. On Everything” and features five 30-second commercials that range from an Easter egg hunt to a customer asking for a price match. “We have lost our customer confi-

dence ... in having the lowest price,” said Duncan MacNaughton, chief merchandising officer at Wal-Mart in an interview with The Associated Press. The new commercials come as WalMart’s U.S. business is smarting because of mistakes it made on price and selection and as it faces increasing price competition from dollar chains and In fact, its slogan “Save Money. Live Better,” in use for several years, now appears in smaller type in the ads, underscoring Wal-Mart’s shift in strategy

to hammer hard that it has everything shoppers need at rock-bottom prices. Wal-Mart is restoring thousands of items it had stopped carrying in an overzealous bid to clean up its stores, from fishing supplies in Dallas to snowblowers in Minneapolis, and has returned to its “Everyday Low Prices” roots. To change perceptions, the company also said it is directing store employees to comb through competitors’ advertisements so price matches at the register are easier.

NEW YORK — Nasdaq and IntercontinentalExchange said their $11.3 billion bid for NYSE Euronext was rejected without any talks with the exchanges. Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. CEO Robert Greifeld said in a statement late Sunday that feedback from NYSE Euronext shareholders was positive, and that the companies had expected NYSE Euronext would meet with them to discuss the merits of their proposal. NYSE Euronext said earlier Sunday that its Greifeld board decided to turn down the offer, which was submitted earlier this month, because it was “highly conditional” and would have caused unnecessary risk for shareholders. Instead NYSE Euronext, parent of the New York Stock Exchange, is sticking with its plan to combine with German exchange operator Deutsche Boerse AG in a $10 billion deal. The rejection of the Nasdaq/ICE bid was expected. Analysts have said that a deal between the companies would have led to more job losses. They also worried that a combination would raise antitrust concerns in Washington if Nasdaq and NYSE created one big U.S. stock market exchange. But Nasdaq and Intercontinental Exchange Inc. say their bid is “clearly superior” and called the Deutsche Boerse proposal “indisputably financially inferior.” ICE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Sprecher said in a statement that by declining to meet with Nasdaq and ICE, the NYSE’s board was ignoring its obligation to its stockholders. “I would expect that NYSE Euronext’s stockholders will make their displeasure known to the board,” he said. Sprecher said the two companies “will continue meeting with investors, customers and regulators to highlight the many ways in which our proposal is superior, not only for the stockholders of NYSE Euronext, but also for market participants in the U.S. and Europe which would benefit from a more efficient and competitive marketplace.” Nasdaq and ICE said Bank of America and Wells Fargo are prepared to arrange the financing for its offer. Under its proposal, Nasdaq said it would take over the NYSE’s stock trading and options business, while IntercontinentalExchange would get its derivatives market. ICE trades commodities including oil, sugar, coffee and cotton. It’s also a market for derivatives such as credit default swaps that are used by traders and investors to offset risk in other investments. The proposed merger of Deutsche Boerse and NYSE Euronext would create the world’s largest stock exchange operator.

The nuclear crisis in Japan is turning coal companies into hot stocks. Countries like China are rethinking their nuclear power plans. Germany is switching off seven aging reactors until at least June for safety tests. Coal is an alternative to nuclear power for generating electricity. So expectations for higher demand have sent Consol Energy’s stock up 4 percent since the earthquake on March 11.

Peabody Energy is up 5 percent. Coal stocks should keep rising over the next few years, says Morningstar’s Michael Tian. If fewer nuclear plants are built, countries will need more thermal coal, the kind used in power generation. And as Japan rebuilds, it will need more steel. That will help companies like Cloud Peak Energy, which produces metallurgical coal, the type used in steel mills.

Analysts say these coal companies are good long-term buys: MONDAY CLOSE


PRICE-EARNINGS RATIO (based on past 12 months)



Peabody Energy (BTU) $66.43 $34.89—73.95 23 34 cents (0.5%) 48% 5% 7% Peabody’s fourth-quarter earnings more than doubled because of higher coal demand in China, India and other emerging markets. The company fuels roughly a tenth of all U.S. electricity generation and 2 percent worldwide. It also has a large mining operation in Australia that produces coal for steel making. Its stock is up 48 percent over the last year. The S&P 500 is up 12 percent. Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) 21.57 12.82—24.69 22 none 34 — — Cloud Peak is Morningstar’s top pick among coal stocks. The company has some of the lowest costs in the industry since it operates mines in places like Wyoming, where coal is closer to the surface than in Appalachia. Analysts expect earnings to rise 10 percent in 2011 and 24 percent in 2012 on strong demand for coal in Asia. The stock is up 34 percent over the past year. It was spun off from Rio Tinto in 2009. Consol Energy (CNX) 50.34 31.08—56.32 32 40 cents (0.8%) 18 -12 7 Consol’s revenue rose 10 percent during the most recent quarter because of strong earnings in its coal business. The company is focusing on India this year and plans to sell more coal for making steel there. It’s also expanding a mine in Pennsylvania, which should allow Consol to produce an additional 5 million tons a year starting in 2014. Earnings are expected to rise 23 percent this year and 56 percent in 2012. Consol’s stock has risen 18 percent over the past year. SOURCES: FactSet; Morningstar; AP research

Our cloudy morning is being sponsored by the proximity of a stalled front, the same one that passed through early last night. And, with a wave of low pressure riding up along the front, today we can expect more rain into tonight, and more showers tomorrow. Up to an inch of rain is possible the next two days. Indeed, this has been a very wet year so far with 5.2 inches more of rain compared to this time last year. I see a good chance for rain this weekend, probably on Saturday, but both Thursday and Friday should be dry. The call was for us to have a wet April this year, and so far that prediction is able to hold water. - Tom Clark

Don’t treat an overdose with Ipecac


Dr. Stanley J. Dudrick will lead the new physician assistant training program this fall at Misericordia University.

AN ACADEMIC PIONEER Misericordia developing new program for 2012 By EILEEN GODIN

Times Leader Correspondent


isericordia University has enlisted the help of Dr. Stanley J. Dudrick, a pioneer in the academic, clinical and medical fields, to develop a new physician assistant program.

The Dallas university’s new endeavor, aimed at meeting the demands of the changing health industry, will roll out this fall for undergraduate students and in May 2012 for graduate students. The physician assistant program will be the third in the area, along with King’s College in Wilkes-Barre and Marywood University in Scranton. “Misericordia has a great nursing school. This is a really good next step,” said Dudrick, 76, formerly of Nanticoke but currently residing in Connecticut. A physician assistant is an individual medically trained to work under the su-

pervision of a doctor while offering quality care to patients. Dudrick, named the program’s medical director, explained a physician assistant would complete the same curriculum as a medical student but does not need the level of expertise as a doctor. The proposed entry level physician assistant master degree would be the first graduate program for the College of Arts and Sciences at Misericordia University, said Paul Krzywicki, assistant director of Marketing Communications. The university has applied for provisional accreditation status from the Ac- See PROGRAMS, Page 3C

creditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant studies. Krzywicki said a site visit from the ARCPA will be made in October. Provisional accreditation status could be issued by March 2012. Dudrick’s role in the developing program is to make sure the curriculum will meet the patient care practice standards, as well as teaching and evaluating the performance of students and the program. Upon the program’s accreditation, Dudrick will be appointed to the Robert S. Anderson Endowed chair, the first academic position offered by Misericordia. Dudrick said he plans to draw on his vast knowledge, which includes an impressive list of notable universities and hospital positions as well as being the first professor and founding chair of the Department of Surgery at the University of

Q: I recall my mother having a bottle of Ipecac syrup in the bathroom cabinet for accidental overdose emergencies. Why don’t you see Ipecac anymore? — R.M., Lima, Ohio A: Moms believed back then that in the event of an accidental overdose, a few teaspoons of Ipecac syrup would induce vomiting, expel the harmful substance and possibly save a child’s life. Ipecac is a waste of time, and probably causes more harm than good. In one study cited by the American Academy of Pediatrics, 61 percent of all ingestions were not even toxic. The parent gave the child Ipecac without calling the doctor or poison control hotline first — or the doctor incorrectly advised the use of Ipecac. What’s more, the amount of toxic substance removed is inversely proportional to the time after ingestion. It may be too late for it to be of any help. Another problem with Ipecac is that the vomiting after its ingestion may persist for hours. This makes it difficult for the child to keep down activated charcoal, Mucomyst (for Tylenol overdose) or handle emergency bowel lavage when later seen in the emergency department. The first action for a caregiver of a child who may have ingested a toxic substance should be to call the Poison Control Center hotline at (800) 222-1222. Q: Why do we have a gag reflex? — R.Y., Cumming, Ga. A: Simply put, it is our body’s way of putting us in control — letting us decide what gets near the very back of the throat, what gets swallowed, and what will not inadvertently get aspirated down our windpipe and into our lungs. That includes mucous draining from the nasal passages. The airway and esophagus lie in close proximity to one another. The gag reflex is not just triggered by touching the soft tissues of the back of the throat. Gagging without direct contact can also occur in response to an extremely upsetting event or to an odor that’s sickening. Some tips for those with a sensitive gag reflex: 1) Brush the back of your tongue at the gag spot for 30-60 seconds daily; 2) Try deep breathing exercises through your nose; 3) Try warm salt water gargle if there is lots of mucous drainage or a sore throat; and 4) Ask your dentist if they have numbing throat spray.

Operation recommended for dog with torn ligament ROMO IS AN 8-year-old Labrador retriever mix with acute lameness in his right rear leg. He was seen by his veterinarian and diagnosed with a torn anterior (cranial) cruciate ligament. Treatment options include surgical repair, rest and medication to control inflammation and pain, injection(s) of antiinflammatory medication and a combination of some or all of these. Romo’s owners were told surgery would be the best choice. They’ve put him on anti-inflammatory medication and have noted some improvement. Their dilemma is whether they should invest the money in surgery for an older dog. I must agree that surgery for Romo is probably the best option. Larger dogs need the stability in the knee joint provided by the cruciate ligaments. Without this stability, the lameness worsens. That said, surgery has to be a financial option as well. For smaller dogs, because they do not put as much weight on the knee joint, rest and anti-inflammatory medication may provide both short-term and long-term relief and allow normal function. Is surgery worth it for Romo? In my heart and mind, it is all about life quality and it is definitely a better quality of life for a dog when it can walk without dealing with excessive pain regardless of age.

Don’t worry too much about the hint of radiation reaching U.S. shores from the damaged nuclear reactors in Japan, experts say. So far, it’s much less than we’d get from a chest X-ray. But consider this: Every day, all day long, we’re bathed in low levels of radiation — cosmic rays from outer space, radon in our houses, uranium deposits in the soil, radio signals from every AM and FM station in range, airport full-body scanners, dental X-rays, cellphones, even tiny hints lingering from the A-bomb tests of the 1940s and ’50s. And remember that radiation is cumulative. Most scientists agree there’s no such thing as a harmless dose. Now relax. It’s less scary than it sounds. “It’s absolutely true there’s no safe dose. But we’re likely to be OK if we remain vigilant,” says Dr. Nagy Elsayyad, a radiation

oncology expert at the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Not all radiation is equal. What comes from medical X-rays, airport scanners, leaking nuclear plants and similar sources is ionizing radiation — the dangerous kind, capable of causing cancer, increasingly so as time and dosage increase. But much of the radiation around us, from radio waves to cellphone signals to leaky microwave ovens, is the non-ionizing type never proven to cause illness, say scientists — well, most scientists. World War II newsreel footage from Hiroshima and Nagasaki shows the doomsday effects of nuclear bombs exploding over cities, killing hundreds of thousands from the immediate blast and tens of thousands more later on, from high-dose radiation poisoning. And the current nuclear crisis in Japan has prompted new fears of radiation contamination.

enough extra cosmic radiation through the thinner atmosphere to increase his or her cancer risk by about 0.3 percent. Another natural source, radon, is an invisible, odorless, radioac-

tive gas emitted from soil. In all, natural sources expose the average earthling to about 6.2 millisieverts (mSv) of radiation annually. The millisievert is the common unit for measuring radiation exposure; one millisievert equals about 10 chest Xrays. There are other ways of measuring radiation, but the millisievert is the most widely used. The trick is to limit our exposure to ionizing radiation above that universal 6.2 mSv, Elsayyad says. The National Council on Radiation Protection recommends we get no more than one additional unit per year. To put it in perspective, measuring in millisieverts, a chest Xray adds 0.1, a mammogram adds 0.7, a high-altitude, cross-country airplane flight adds 0.05 and a medical CAT scan adds 10. The new full-body scanners at airports may be intrusive, but their radiation level is low — far less than 0.1 mSv, according to the American Cancer Society.

mie and Daddy met, the joy they felt when each child was born. With great pain and incalculable purpose, she recorded a legacy video as a bridge for her children to see themselves with their mom and hear her advice for those hallmark moments ahead: finishing school, getting married, making a marriage work. “I don’t want my kids to feel I abandoned them,” said Lee, whose prognosis is living for two more years at best, only a few months if the cancer moves more rapidly. Families around the country have turned to videographers for years to film special occasions and 50th anniversaries and birthdays. In recent years, many critically ill people are hiring videographers, too. “This will be the most precious thing those children own,” said Kate Carter, founder of LifeChronicles, a Santa Barbara, Calif., nonprofit that has recorded 700 legacy videos around the country over the past 13 years. “Taping is a very empowering, invigorating thing,” said Carter, who shoots the videos with teams of student interns. “They get to do something for their family, and when Fawn’s children see themselves with her on camera, they will re-experience being in her presence after she’s gone.” Pat McNees, president of the 530-member Association of Personal Historians, said the videos can capture many things that photos and letters can’t.


Fawn Lee becomes emotional as she talks about her life and her end-stage lung cancer while being videotaped by videographers from LifeChronicles in her San Jose, Calif. home. LifeChronicles has recorded 700 legacy videos around the country for seriously ill people and the elderly.

If you videotape a mother looking with love at her child, “the child can see that love,” she said. “That’s really what a child wants to know about a deceased parent — that their parent loved them, that they were important.” Photos taken at Lee’s videotaping session with her children and husband, Rick Pham, show powerful glimpses of that love and devotion. Her first chemotherapy treatment was two weeks ago, so Lee has only begun her fight against the cancer. She and her husband pray every day, giving thanks for that day, asking for more days to come. After the taping, “I had a sense of closure,” she said. In the whirlwind of decisions she’s had to make since her diagnosis on Feb. 10, the video “is done and I feel better knowing that I’ve explained if

Are You Suffering With Pain,Tingling, or Numbness in Your Feet or Ankles?

Do what Ed Labatch did…He Called The Neuropathy Center! “I had very little feeling in my legs and feet that I couldn’t even drive. After treatment at the Neuropathy Center I can not only drive again but enjoy life like I used to… without pain.” I had neuropathy in my legs and had very little feeling to the point that I couldn’t even drive my car. I suffered for about three years. I couldn’t stand very long or do many of the regular activities that I loved to do with my wife. I found that I sat around a lot. I wanted so badly to get my life back to the way I remembered it so when I saw the ad in the paper for the Neuropathy Center I made an appointment right away. After meeting with the professional staff at the Neuropathy Center I knew that there was hope for me. After just my second treatment I felt life in my legs again. I couldn’t believe it! The Neuropathy Center has changed my life in so many ways. My experience has been terrific! Now my wife Betty and I can continue to enjoy our active life doing the things we love including Polka dancing!! I would highly recommend anyone who is suffering from Neuropathy pain to make an appointment today. Their caring staff were never to busy to answer any & all of my questions…in fact we always look forward to our visit.

the gaps and streamline medical practices. “By 2020 we could have a crisis due to the increase in the elderly population and their needs with a

limited supply of doctors,” Dudrick said. He estimated there are about 70,000 to 80,000 physician assistants in the nation, but 100,000 are needed. Dudrick said despite his age he is not ready to shelve his knowledge and retire. He said after six months of discussion with Michael A.MacDowell,Misericordia’spresident, he decided to take on the position and help get the program rolling. Dudrick said that he and his wife, Theresa, a Misericordia alumnae, have always been very supportive of the university. With his strong views on the role physician assistants will have in the future of health care, Dudrick plans to work with the staff and trusteesofMisericordiaUniversity to develop a strong curriculum for the physician assistant program, “making it among the best in the country.”

Her lung cancer is not the kind that smokers get but comes with the weightofadirewarningassoonas a patient is told by an oncologist that she has it: “You need to get your affairs in order,” the doctor said. “Now.” In that moment, “everything

While in the hospital, she managed to have an attorney prepare a will, a medical directive and power of attorney in a day. As she lay frozen by pain in her hospital bed, she Googled videographers but didn’t find what she was looking for. A social worker at the hospital told her about LifeChronicles. “Iwantedtostartwritingletters to my kids, but I was too weak,” she said. Lee has written down what she wants for her funeral service. She and her husband worry about whether his income alone can pro-

They will need you.” But mainly they are treasuring every day.

Open minds are useful when discussing the existence of God with kids Dear Abby: I would like to respond to “Agnostic Dad in South Carolina” (Feb. 16), who wondered about how to answer the inevitable “Is there a God?” question his children will ask. My parents had strong but differing Christian faiths. They compromised when bringing us up, and we went to the church nearest our home (another denomination). Further, when we were teens, they allowed us to “sample” other religious traditions to determine what would suit us best. I became agnostic, and like “Dad in S.C.,” was unsure what to tell my son. My husband and I do not

DEAR ABBY ADVICE belong to any organized religion and didn’t take him to church as a youngster. Instead, we introduced stories from the Bible at bedtime, and allowed him to attend his friends’ churches when he asked to. More important, we showed him that all people are to be valued and that differences are to be respected. Our son is now in his late 20s. He’s a gentle, caring person with an interest in people from other cultures, religions and circumstances. Whether he is agnostic, religious or an atheist is a personal matter to him. He’s comfortable with his beliefs


and doesn’t impose them on anyone else. As a parent, I couldn’t ask for more. — Free-Thinking Mom in Washington Dear Mom: Thank you for writing. Many readers were eager to offer guidance on this subject to a fellow parent. Read on: Dear Abby: Despite eight years of Catholic education, I’m an atheist. My wife is a Lutheran. We’ve never argued about it because we feel everyone has a right to religious freedom. We have three sons, whom she took to church and Sunday school regularly with my complete support. We discussed in advance what our answer should be when the God question


came up. Our response was: “Some people believe there is a God and others do not. You will get a sound religious education, and when the time comes, you will decide for yourself.” Our sons are now adults with families. Two are religious; one is not. At family meals we join hands and say grace. Some recite it — some just listen — and everybody’s happy. — Harmonious in Illinois

different answers, they will learn that not everyone shares the same opinion. Suggesting that “Dad” not express his view plainly, without input from his wife, amounts to recommending that they collude in providing a dishonest answer. — Emeritus Professor of Philosophy in Iowa

Dear Abby: There is no problem for “Agnostic” and his wife to “handle.” If his children ask if there’s a God, he should model honesty for them and say what he thinks. So should his wife. If the kids get two

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.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know you’re lucky, but you don’t always feel that way. Someone in dire straits helps you look at your own life differently. In this new light, you may decide that you’re doing just fine. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An enjoyable healthy habit is quickly becoming part of your regular routine. Soon this will be so ingrained in your manner that it will be an essential part of who you are. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you have plenty of energy, you are still better off when you conserve it. Feeling bad about the things you can’t change would be a waste. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You won’t be accused of being shy or subtle today. You’ll get right to the point. Your blunt approach will work best on those who are, like you, too busy to do things any other way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s new territory to explore in a relationship. You may stumble through this experience, which is to be expected when you venture out of your element. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes you need feedback. This is not one of those times, though. You could do without other people’s observations on your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If love is a battlefield, your battle has begun, and you are already off to a dynamic start. You’re not fighting another person, though. It’s more like you’re joining arms against the monstrous complexities of modern romance.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your life sparkles when you encourage others to be resourceful. Set some basic rules for your family or group. Beyond those rules, leave as much as you can up to the group’s members. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have signed up to learn and grow. You may be subconsciously working for the approval of the person in charge. Remember that you are the ultimate boss in this endeavor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You like to be in charge sometimes, but always being the one who has to come up with the plan is not so fun. This time you’ll sit back and let others rise to the occasion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Not all interesting stories are sob stories. You’ll have to work harder to find something to relay that is not based on the sad state of things or a complaint therein. If you try, you’ll succeed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You want to raise the mood of every room you enter. You portray yourself like a character in a musical, causing all who witness your theatrics to tap their toes to your uplifting song. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 12). You’ll have all the necessary ingredients for a balanced and happy life. The next six weeks bring you in touch with your natural gifts. Financial luck comes in May. You will adjust to accommodate an addition to your family in July. There’s a magical tie among you, Capricorn and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 4, 39 and 17.
