Board looks for budget solutions


Budget with cuts approved

School district faces potential deficit of $7.9 million in its 2011-12 budget.

House, Senate approve plan through end of budget year; bigger battle for 2012 looms.


WILKES-BARRE – WilkesBarre Area School District is facing a budget crisis for the 2011-12 school year, and members of the district’s budget and finance committee met Thursday to discuss how to plug massive holes caused by slashed state funding and increased operating costs. “I don’t think people really understand how serious … this budget deficit is,” Superintendent Jeffrey Namey said. “Unfortunately, this could turn out to be cataW H AT ’ S strophic.” NEXT?

The district must find a way to make up $4.2 million in lost state and federal funding and $283,558 in lost tax revenue from a reduction of $21.3 million in assessed property tax value, as well as increases of $2.2 million in employee health care costs and $1.2 million in contracted salaries. Namey said he had met with the principals and asked them to review their budgets See BOARD, Page 12A

WASHINGTON — Congress sent President Barack Obama hard-fought legislation cutting a record $38 billion from federal spending on Thursday, bestowing bipartisan support on the first major compromise between the White House and newly empowered Republicans in Congress. “Welcome to divided government,” said House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Republican point man in tough negotiations with the president and Senate Majority Leader Harry “Welcome Reid, D-Nev., that produced a to divided bill no one claimed to like in its governentirety.

County looks beyond Valley Crest no-sale By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County commissioners have failed to unload the former Valley Crest Nursing Home for the second time, but they’re not frazzled because they’ve come up with a backup plan to

cover the budget shortfall. The commissioners’ decision to count on revenue from the Valley Crest sale left a $4.4 million hole in the county’s 2011 budget. However, county Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne

Petrilla said Thursday that the county will likely receive an estimated $6 million in unbudgeted revenue by selling the right to claim 2010 back taxes owed to the county in exchange for See VALLEY, Page 12A

W-B council passes emergency ban on bath salts


WILKES-BARRE – City Council on Thursday unanimously approved an emergency ordinance that immediately bans the sale and consumption of synthetic drugs in the city, especially the chemicals commonly called bath salts. Assistant City Attorney William Vinsko told council that Luzerne County District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll asked for the quick action to aid in law enforcement. “With council’s passage of this ordinance tonight, it will be delivered to all district magisterial offices so it can be enforced,” Vinsko said. The emergency ordinance is good for 90 days, Vinsko said. Council also passed a similar ordinance on first reading and will vote again in two weeks. Vinsko said council did not want to wait two weeks to get the ordinance in effect, so the emergency ordinance allows for immediate enforcement. Councilman Rick Cronauer first asked council to consider the bath salts ban two weeks ago. Mayor Tom Leighton, who did not attend the council meeting, issued a statement in support of the ordinance. “The legal sale of these products has not curbed the illegal activities committed under their influence or the dangerous and potentially life-threatening effects of those who use bath salts or innocent victims caught in the middle,” Leighton said. “Tonight, in consultation with City Council and the City Attorney’s Office, we have taken a bold step to impede the flow of this poison onto our streets and into our neighborhoods to protect the children and families of our city.” He said city Police Chief Gerard Dessoye endorsed council’s action as well. “This ordinance provides our officers with full authority to attack this problem and we stand ready to enforce it,” Dessoye said.

WA seeks ruling to enforce case’s settlement terms By JERRY LYNOTT

SCRANTON – The Wyoming Area School District on Thursday sought a court order to enforce a settlement and prevent an attorney from taking additional money from funds to pay for the schooling of a special education student. The district filed a petition in U.S. District Court, Scranton, claiming the attorney for Christopher and Cheryl Fedor wanted to use money designated for the student to cover a fee not included in the settlement. Under the terms of the settlement approved by the school board on Jan. 25 the district would pay $10,000 into an education trust for the student and $13,500 in attorneys’ fees to Heather Hulse of McAndrews Law Offices in Scranton. Originally, the settlement’s demands called for $75,000 to be placed in a trust for the student and $19,000 in attorneys’ fees. During the negotiations, the demands dropped to $10,000 for the student, but the attorneys’ fees fell to $10,000, increased to $15,000 and fell to $13,500. On March 1, attorney William J. McPartland, representing the district, said Hulse sent an e-mail to him saying the settlement “was fine,” however, she wanted to change the definition of legitimate educational expenses to include “costs and feeds (sic) incurred in the furtherance of securing legitimate educational services, including this agreement.” McPartland, of Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin of Scranton, added that Hulse indicated money would be taken from the student’s funds to pay a contingency fee. In the negotiated settlement there was no mention of a contingency fee, McPartland said. He asked the court to preclude Hulse from taking an additional fee from the agreed upon payment to set up the trust.


Crestwood drug program honored By STEFFEN LIZZA Times Leader Correspondent

WRIGHT TWP. – Two Crestwood Middle School teachers and their students were recognized Wednesday for their help in pioneering a new drug-and-alcohol prevention program. Ron Jeckell and Alison Carr were chosen to help rewrite and adapt the “keepin’ it REAL” curriculum for rural middle school students in Pennsylvania and implement it in their classes. Penn State and the Drug Resistance Strategies Project chose teachers from across Eastern Pennsylvania and Ohio as part of a research project to develop an effective version of the keepin’ it REAL prevention program. The effort started three years ago with discussion groups, and evolved into a 10-week program that uses heavy student-teacher interaction and videos produced by youth and based on real students’ stories to help promote healthy decisions and teach students how to assess risk. The students received the curriculum in seventh and eighth grade. The course puts together the information they learned and helps them channel it into cre-

By the time kids are in high school, they have made their decisions,’’ said Cathy Terwilliger, project liaison with Wyoming Valley Alcohol and Drug Services Inc. “To get students excited about these kinds of things is to not only keep them from using drugs and alcohol, but to get them to understand there are other ways to have fun and be creative and do all the things that kids say they use drugs for.’’ A contest was held that allowed the students to create au-

Roughly 650 candidates are running in the May 17 primary. A computer software program designed the ballot, Piazza said.

The Democratic race for county council is the only contest that requires candidates to be listed on a second screen because there are 33 contenders, he said. Thirty-one candidates will be listed on the first screen in that contest, and the names of candidates Michael A. Chrobak and Stephen A. Urban will appear on the second page.

Fundraising has Casey camp upbeat about re-election WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, raised $1.1 million during the first three months of the year and had more than $2.1 million in his campaign chest as of March 31, his campaign says. “Thesearestrongnumbersthat show a growing war chest as the cycle begins,” said a Casey campaign official who provided the numbers ahead of Casey filing his quarterly report due today. Casey ousted Republican Rick Santorum from the Senate in a close race in 2006 to win his seat.

But the hefty fundraising numbers for the start of the year come as Republicans appear to be struggling to find a 2012 strong opponent, and nonpartisan analysts so far rate the race as favoring the first-term Democrat. The Rothenberg Political Report in Washington says the 2012 Senate race in Pennsylvania is “Democrat favored.” The Washington-based Cook Political Report places it as among the Senate seats that are “likely D.” A recent story in Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, analyzing Senate races nationwide said that

in light of GOP Sen. Pat Toomey’s win of his Senate seat in Pennsylvania in 2010, “Republicans should have an opportunity to knock off first-term Sen. Bob Casey in 2012.” But the Roll Call story said that “Republican leaders concede Pennsylvania is one of the states where they have some recruitment holes. That could be because Democrats enjoy a substantial voter-registration edge, which will likely be a far greater factor with President Barack Obama atop the ballot in 2012 than it was in the 2010 midterms.” Two announced GOP challen-

gers to Casey are Laureen Cummings, the Tea Party movement leader in Scranton, and Marc Scaringi, a former Senate aide to Santorum. But, reports Roll Call, “neither has generated substantial excitement among local Republicans.” More potential GOP candidates are expected to look at the race, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee is not leaving Casey alone. It regularly attacks the Scranton Democrat in press releases, a sign that the national GOP still hopes Casey will prove vulnerable.

about $91,000 on hand as of March 31, his campaign said. Reports aren’t due into the Federal Election Commission until midnight today, and Barletta’s official filing was not available Thursday. Meanwhile, Democrat William Vinsko Jr., a lawyer with his own practice who also is assistant city attorney for Wilkes-Barre, said Thursday he is contemplat-

ing running against Barletta in 2012. “It is something I am considering, but I am not ready to jump in the race yet,” said Vinsko, who added that there are a “lot of unknowns,” including how the GOPcontrolled redistricting process will play out when new congressional lines are drawn for 2012 following the 2010 Census.

Marino, who does not yet have an announced Democratic opponent for 2012, reported raising $59,900 during the first three months of the year. Marino’s campaign had $37,594 on hand as of March 31, his report said. Both congressmen defeated incumbent Democrats last year. Barletta beat Paul Kanjorski, while Marino ousted Chris Carney.

Luzerne County government must pay $50,417 in retroactive pay raises to assistant district attorneys and public defenders because of a new union contract awarded through binding arbitration, county records show. County officials had been unable to put a price tag on the retroactive raises when the contract went into effect last month. The previous contract expired at the end of 2009, and negotiations went to

binding arbitration because the commissioners could not reach an agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters representing the workers. The workers were granted 1.5 percent retroactive raises for 2010, 2 percent for 2011 and 3 percent in 2012 and 2013. Assistant district attorneys hired from 2005 through 2010 also received additional raises to bring their salaries more in line with those of assistant public defenders. A combined $26,992 in retroactive raises will be paid to 26 assistant district attorneys. According to payroll records supplied by county Controller Walter Griffith:

• Six assistant district attorneys will receive $1,702 in retroactive raises: Maureen Collins, Shannon Crake, William Dunn Jr., Jillian Matthews, Frank McCabe and Jenny Roberts. • Payments of $1,531 will go to three employees – Alexis Falvello, Rebecca Reimiller and Albert Yacoub. Three other employees will receive $1,361: Michelle Hardik, Matthew Muckler and Mary Phillips. • The remaining payments are: $989, James McMonagle; $791, Mark Makowski; $665, Michael Vough; $584, Jarrett Ferentino; $583, Frank Barletta, William Finnegan, Michael Melnick and Mary Mirabito; $556, Richard Hughes and Nancy Smacchi; See PAY, Page 4A

Richards can put off jail

A federal judge Thursday allowed former Luzerne County Human Resources Director Doug Richards to remain free pending the appeal of his sentence. Richards was to surrender on April 18 to begin serving a 15-month prison sentence for his guilty plea in January 2010 to accepting a bribe for influencing the Richards awarding of a contract. His attorney, William Ruzzo, said it could be eight months or longer for a resolution by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Ruzzo sought the release pending appeal Wednesday, saying Richards has been free for several months without any negative incident and poses no threat to flee because his family and employment are local. U.S. District Judge James Munley agreed to the release. and the Irem Shriners Circus will present “Circus on the Common,” a free, one-hour special event April 26 at the River Common park.

Venesky said an attorney with the township’s insurance carrier was meeting with the defendants named in the lawsuit. Kijek’s husband, Dennis, said he witnessed his wife being shoved by Venesky. After the alleged incident, the Kijeks filed a report with the township police department. Police Chief Robert Franks said that due to a conflict of interest, state police at Hazleton will be requested to conduct an inquiry and perhaps an investigation. Venesky said he plans to file his own report with police today. Supervisor Chairman Miller Stella said there was no physical contact be-

PLYMOUTH – Police said a .357-caliber Smith and Wesson revolver and other items were stolen from a vehicle parked on Willow Street on Tuesday. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Plymouth police at 779-2147.

KINGSTON – Police charged Justin Benzeleski, 22, East Vaughn Street, with violating a protection from abuse order after Jessica Cunningham alleged he threw a soda bottle at her during an argument Tuesday night. Benzeleski was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail. A hearing is scheduled on April 21 in county court.

Stella said he was standing next to Venesky when the two supervisors had words at the door. “Under no circumstances did Mr. Venesky touch her in any way, shape or form,” Stella said. Stella said there is video of the Kijeks entering and leaving the municipal building, and Ann Kijek playing with her granddaughters at the adjacent playground after the alleged incident. “If she was injured as she claims, then why did she play with her grandkids at the park?” Stella asked. Stella said the Kijeks are upset because they are being forced to reimburse the township $107 for Dennis Kijek’s three-day stay while attending a municipal conference with his supervisor wife in Hershey in April 2010. Stella said a motion passed 2-1 at their meeting Tuesday night, with Ann Kijek dissenting, for the reimbursement. Stella said the township mistakenly paid for Dennis Kijek’s lodging. “This is retaliation to what happened at the meeting Tuesday night,” Stella said.

Nation’s air traffic manager quits


Resignation comes after several incidents of controllers sleeping on job.

LOS ANGELES — The nation’s top manager of airplane traffic resigned after several incidents in which air traffic controllers fell asleep at their posts, the Federal Aviation Administration announced Thursday. The agency, which oversees the nation’s civilian aviation

system, announced in a posting on its website that FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt had accepted the resignation of Hank Krakowski, head of the agency’s Air Traffic Organization. In recent weeks, several incidents of air traffic controllers being asleep at the job have been reported around the nation. “Over the last few weeks we have seen examples of unprofessional conduct on the part of a few individuals that have rightly caused the traveling public to question our ability to ensure their safety,” Babbitt

Protest detainees released

yria’s president ordered the release Thursday of hundreds of detainees S involved in a month of protests seeking to wrest political freedoms from one of the Middle East’s most repressive governments. The order, announced by state TV, signaled an attempt by President Bashar Assad to calm weeks of growing protest anger and pre-empt what is expected to be another day of large demonstrations on Friday. Protests erupted in Syria a month ago and have steadily increased, with tens of thousands calling for sweeping political reforms from Assad’s authoritarian regime. More than 200 people have been killed during in the government’s crackdown, according to Syria’s leading pro-democracy group.

City gets new name

Later this month, there will still be a city with roughly 31,000 residents in the Allegheny Mountains east of Pittsburgh. What there won’t be is a city named Altoona. That’s because the city has sold its name to make some money — and to help independent filmmaker Morgan Spurlock make a point. City Council on Wednesday approved a deal to change Altoona’s name to "POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" for 60 days. Spurlock will pay the city an unspecified amount that will benefit its police department. The film skewers the proliferation of advertising in American life. POM Wonderful is a juice company that paid to be the movie’s title sponsor. The film will screen in Altoona on April 27, the day the name change takes effect. PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA

Late president honored

The flags are up and the streets of North Korea’s capital are lined with flowers as the nation prepares to celebrate the biggest holiday of the year: the birthday of late President Kim Il Sung. April 15 is called “The Day of the Sun” in honor of the man who founded North Korea in 1948 and maintains godlike status in the country now led by his son, Kim Jong Il. It’s a time for North Koreans to relax with friends and family. But it’s also an occasion to rally national pride as the country undergoes a sensitive leadership transition and as tensions with the outside world persist. North Koreans are arriving in droves to lay bouquets at the towering bronze statue of Kim Jong Il in central Pyongyang. MELVILLE, N.Y.

Serial killer search goes on

Officials Thursday turned up empty in a continuing search from the air, on land and in the water for clues or more remains in a potential serial killer case. “The places that we were looking at, we found nothing,” Nassau Police Department spokesman Detective Vincent Garcia said Thursday afternoon. Officers had checked about half of 15 to 20 locations they planned to search, Garcia said. Searchers cleared out of the brush Thursday afternoon so that a specially equipped FBI aircraft could take highresolution images of the area. The aircraft flew east over the Jones Beach barrier island Thursday between 1 and 3 p.m., officials said. It went from Zachs Bay and covered the north side of the island east to Tobay Beach.

The incidents sparked complaints that the staffing at control towers was inadequate. On Wednesday, the FAA announced that it would add controllers at 27 towers around the country. Thursday’s reshuffling of the top officials was the next step. “This morning I met with the head of our Air Traffic Organization, the part of the Federal Aviation Administration charged with operating our air traffic control system,” Babbitt said. “Hank Krakowski has submitted his resignation and I have accepted it.”

13 are killed by Gadhafi forces New NATO airstrikes hit Tripoli as alliance tries to intensify mission. U.N. chief sets coalition goals.

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is seen in Tripoli on Thursday on Libyan TV, which said the footage showed Gadhafi defiantly waving at his supporters while being driven around Tripoli standing up through the sunroof of a car. Forces loyal to the leader shelled a besieged western city Thursday, killing at least 13 people.


TRIPOLI, Libya — Forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi shelled a besieged western city Thursday, killing at least 13 people, and new NATO airstrikes shook Tripoli as the U.S. told a meeting the alliance must intensify its mission to isolate the Libyan leader and “bring about his departure.” After the explosions in Tripoli, one residentofawesternsuburbofthecapitalsaid anti-aircraft guns returned fire, apparently at NATO warplanes. Libyan state television showed video of Gadhafi defiantly pumping his fists in the air as he stood through the sun roof a car moving quickly through the streets of Tripoli. It said Gadhafi’s tour came at the same time as NATO airstrikes on military and civilian areas of the capital and Aziziyah, about 22 miles to the south, adding that there were civilian casualties. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon chaired a Cairo meeting of regional and international organizations on Libya and set three targets: reaching and imple-


menting a cease-fire, delivering humanitarian aid and starting a dialogue on Libya’s future. “Shelling your own people is not acceptable,” he said. at a meeting at Arab League headquarters, referring to actions by Gadhafi’s forces against anti-government rebels. “This is a violation of human rights.” The fighting in Libya began in mid-February when large anti-government protests escalated into a civil war. Rebels now hold eastern Libya, while Gadhafi controls the west, with the front line shifting back and forth in the middle. Three weeks of international airstrikes haven’t routed Gadhafi’s forces.

Gadhafi’s troops unleashed heavy shelling for three hours on the port city of Misrata, which is partly held by rebels who are defending positions against government forces. Gadhafi’s troops have laid siege to the city, taking control of some neighborhoods. The port is Misrata’s only lifeline. At the meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Berlin, members of the alliance stressed their common aim is to bring an end to Gadhafi’s regime, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said theworldmustincreaseitssupportforthe Libyan opposition. Although the alliance agrees that Gadhafi must be ousted, it has been at odds on how to proceed.

AURORA, Ill. — When Fernando Molina left central Mexico to move to Illinois, he was searching for affordable housing, job opportunities and established Hispanic neighborhoods with grocery stores, bakeries and clothing shops. He didn’t head for Chicago, a well-known magnet for Mexicans pondering the journey north. Instead, he settled in Aurora, about 40 miles to the west. “It’s like Mexico inside the United States,” said Molina, 37, a so- “Now imcial worker who migrants are has lived in the living in a lot U.S. for more than a decade of places and now assists where there other immigrant were no imfamilies. “You migrants 20 can find everything in the or 30 years stores.” ago.” Over the last Audrey Singer decade, tens of Brookings thousands of Institution others have followed his path to Aurora — more than 35,000 of about 55,000 new residents between 2000 and 2010 were Hispanic. The city, which is now 40 percent Hispanic, has surpassed Rockford to become Illinois’ secondlargest city. The trend of immigrants heading directly to American suburbs instead of starting in a major city intensified from 2000 to 2010 — and was one factor in Illinois’ 32.5 percent increase in Hispanic population in that period, according to recently released U.S. Census data. The same thing is happening around other major cities that have long been entry points for immigrants, such as New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. “Now immigrants are living in a lot of places where there were no immigrants 20 or 30 years ago,” said Audrey Singer, a senior fellow with the Washington-based Brookings Institution.

Japanese royal couple commiserate with residents of hard-hit area Residents in Asahi are frustrated by the lack of progress made at the crippled nuclear power plant.


TOKYO — Japan’s revered emperor made his first visit Thursday to the disaster zone devastated by an earthquake and tsunami, kneeling on mats to commiserate with survivors who bowed in gratitude and wiped away tears. Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko visited two evacuation shelters Thursday in Asahi city, where they spoke quietly with evacuees sit-

ting on mats in the community centers that have become their temporary homes. Asahi, about 54 miles east of ToAkihito kyo near the Pacific coast, is one of the southernmost areas to be heavily affected by the March 11 natural disasters, which killed up to 26,000 people and set off a crisis of radiation leaks at a

flooded nuclear plant. One evacuee with Down syndrome, who has trouble speaking, conveyed his thoughts to the royal couple on paper. “I will keep striving,” he wrote in a note. In Asahi, where some 3,000 homes were damaged or destroyed and13 people killed, the royal couple stood somberly gazing at one damaged area that had already been cleared of rubble. Overall, nearly 140,000 people are still living in shelters after losing

their homes or being advised to evacuate because of concerns about radiation leaking from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. Although Japanese officials have insisted the situation at the crippled plant is improving and that leaks into the atmosphere are declining, the crisis has dragged on, accompanied by a nearly nonstop series of mishaps and aftershocks of the 9.0-magnitude quake that have impeded work in clearing debris and restoring the plant’s disabled cooling systems.

Hanover Area considers MANSION closing Lyndwood school Continued from Page 1A

By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

HANOVER TWP. – Hanover Area School District officials are considering restructuring the district and closing Lyndwood Elementary School in order to balance the 2011-2012 budget. Nearly 150 people attended the school board’s regular meeting Thursday night and heard a PowerPoint update from Superintendent Anthony Podczasy on the status of the proposed spending plan that includes a $2.8 million shortfall. The board has worked on the spending plan for months, trying to find ways to cope with a deficit after the announcement of Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed cuts in education funding. Since then, it has knocked that number down to a little more $1 million, which includes a tax increase of one mill. A mill is a $1 tax on every $1,000 of assessed property value. If Lyndwood, which houses third and fourth grades, were to close, class sizes in the district’s remaining schools would increase. The other elementary schools in the district are Memorial, with fifth and sixth grades, Lee Park, with first and second grades, and Hanover Green Kin-

trict is still waiting on a wetlands verification from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a highway occupancy permit from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and an approval of an erosion and sediment control plan from the Luzerne Conservation District. District Solicitor Michael Hudacek asked if the district could avoid purchasing a $1.3 million security bond for the project by instead placing the money in an escrow account and making partial withdrawals as work on the project was complete. Commission members voted unanimously to approve Hudacek’s request and to grant a zoning permit upon receiving proof

Kotsko enjoys the time they spend together. “My wife says (Joey and I) have similar personalities,” Kotsko said. BBBS pairs children ages 6-18 with adult mentors of the same gender. But the nonprofit has had trouble attracting enough male mentors to keep up with demand. According to BBBS Community and Resource Development Coordinator Christine DeMelfiRitter, only three out of every 10 BBBS mentors are male. Some boys have been waiting more than a year to be matched with a mentor. As part of a recruitment campaign, BBBS will ask area busi-

dergarten Center. Vic Kopko of Hanover Township pleaded with the board not the raise taxes. “Every option should remain on the table,” he said. “There is no room to raise taxes any longer.” Phyllis Sheard of Hanover Green said the district should cut any expenses that aren’t directly related to education. She wanted to know the percentage of students in the district that are involved in district-funded sports. Board President John Pericci said he didn’t know the percentage, but would provide that information to her next month. He said that district sports were cut by 15 percent and coaches salaries were cut by 10 percent. “We’re trying to maintain a balance between education and fiscal responsibility,” he said. “The last four years we had positive test scores. The district is moving in the right direction.” The board is still looking into ways to cut costs and increase revenue, said Podczasy. “Nothing is set in stone,” he said. “We still have a long way to go before the budget is passed.”

that the district had received approvals from the Army Corps, PennDOT and the conservation district and deposited the security guarantee. The district also must satisfy those conditions to qualify for a building permit from the borough of Larksville. The district has a year to do so before the board’s determination expires, but Poplawski said he hopes for the approvals to come within a few weeks so the work can begin soon. The school board last week approved borrowing $15 million of the project cost with a bond that is part of the federal stimulus package. The district will borrow another $13 million to complete the funding through a tax-exempt bond. How the borrowing will affect district taxpayers was not known last week. nesses and organizations to allow BBBS representatives to set up recruitment tables to reach employees who might be interested in signing up for the program. In recent years, Kraft Foods in Hanover Township and Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre have participated. “The businesses in the Wyoming Valley are very supportive of our events and services, and I believe they really understand the need for mentoring children in our community,” said DeMelfi-Ritter. The Wilkes-Barre BBBS was founded in 1974. Since then, several thousand children have been mentored. Last year, approximately 500 children were served. There are now about 200 children waiting to be paired with a mentor, 150 of which are boys.

and Diane Cook, close friends of the Carters, and Cook and Cook Auctions co-owners Mark and Annette Parmelee. The Carters hosted a reception at the Stegmaier Mansion after the auction. Matteo spent an hour on Thursday recalling the experience of hosting the Carters and their entourage, including the preparations that led up to it, and anecdotes, such as the story behind the chocolate sculpture of the Presidential Seal on the baby grand piano in one of the mansion’s parlors. The sculpture was created by the mansion’s executive chef, Jody Klocko, and his staff, who spent 40 hours making and hand carving it. President Carter requested a chocolate sculpture for the reception after he learned that Klocko was the executive chef at the mansion because, after studying in Paris, Klocko completed his internship under Albert Kumin, who was Carter’s chef at the White House. “He was cooking up a storm for several days, lots of prep work,” Matteo said of Klocko’s preparations. Things were hectic, in the week leading up to the Carters’ visit. In additions to the bedand-breakfast’s regular bookings, “we had the Secret Service here coming in every day wanting staff lists and to vet everyone … all the exterior spring cleanup going on and, of course, scouring the house,” Matteo said. “It was really exhausting, but it was so worth it.” When the Carters finally arrived, and began a tour of the mansion, “Mrs. Carter said, ‘I’m just going to hold on to you.’ It was really such an exciting thing, I’m holding hands with the first lady. It was just unbelievable, that feeling, I can’t even put it into words,” Matteo said. As the Carters admired the décor and restorations, Matteo said the former president told him “this is what he’s trying to do back in Plains, Ga., that’s why he chose this place” for a reception and to spend the night after the auction. Not long after settling into their room, the Carters and their entourage left for the auction,

Michael J. Drobnicki April 13, 2011 ichael J. Drobnicki, of Warrington, Pa., and formerly of HarM veys Lake and West Wyoming,

passed away Wednesday, April 13, 2011. Michael was born in West Wyoming, a son to Michael and Helen Golias Drobnicki, on September 24, 1938. He resided in West Wyoming until 1968 when he moved to Harveys Lake with his wife and young family before moving to Warrington in 2005. He was a graduate of West Wyoming High School and attended King’s College. He was also a member of the National Guard and the Air Force Reserves. Mike was employed by Allegheny Airlines and eventually USAir at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport for many years. He was also a part-time police officer at Harveys Lake for several years. He was a fireman and, eventually, secretary for the Harveys Lake Fire Co. for over 34 years. In almost any kind of weather, Mike was known to be walking Lakeside Drive. In his spare time, he enjoyed woodworking; anything and everything became a wood product from clocks and furniture to wooden trucks, planes and boats made especially for his grandchildren. He also enjoyed gardening. His yard was always immaculate, and everything was in its place. He looked forward to planting seeds for tomatoes and cukes, as he would call them, every spring, even when he could no longer move around easily. He would baby the seedlings and direct the rest of the family, usually his wife, Barbara, as to what needed to be done next, including the canning of the tomatoes or pickles. His pride and joy were his grandchildren. He loved to hear their stories and tales each day and loved to teach them his knowledge as best he could. Michael loved life and held the position as the patriarch of the family. With his wife, daughters, sons by

marriage and grandchildren, every day was a good day. Michael was preceded in death by his infant daughter, parents and sisters, Mary Guglberger and Helen Hillis. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, the former Barbara Hundanick; and children, Maria Carr and her husband, Leo, of Dallas, and Joan Cheponis and her husband, Ron/Chip, of Warrington, Pa., with whom he lived; grandchildren, Andrea and Nick Carr, and Luke and Lindsey Cheponis.

Jury finds man guilty in teen sex act case

Chad Benner was found guilty in four of five charges against him in case involving teenage girl. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A man charged with forcing a then-teenage girl to perform lewd sex acts over a two-year period was found guilty Thursday afternoon of four of the five charges against him. Chad Benner, 37, formerly of Ranshaw, Pa., was found guilty of one count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and three counts of indecent assault after a jury of six men and six women deliberated for nearly three and a half hours. He was found not guilty of another count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts said she will be seeking a mandatory minimum of 10 to 20 years in prison when Benner is sentenced because he has a prior conviction to similar charges. Luzerne County Judge Joseph Van Jura said Benner will be sentenced within 90 days to give the state Sexual Offender’s Assessment Board time to evaluate Benner. The now-22-year-old woman testified Wednesday she was about 14 when Benner allegedly began forcing her to perform lewd sex acts, which took place from July 2002 to September 2004. She reported the alleged assaults to police in December 2008 after her memory was triggered when her hus-

think of her. Roberts said in her opening statement that the woman was a shy, naive girl and Benner took advantage. Benner’s attorney, John Donovan, said a number of years passed before the incidents were reported, prosecutors can’t pinpoint when the alleged incidents actually happened and there was no physical evidence. Donovan asked that his client be released on bail until his sentencing, but Roberts objected, saying Benner is a threat to the community because of Thursday’s verdict and his prior conviction. Van Jura raised Benner’s bail from $25,000 straight to $150,000 straight. In an unrelated case, Benner was designated as a sexually violent predator by the state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board in September 2005 after he pleaded guilty to criminal attempt to commit unlawful contact with a minor. He was charged by police in December 2004 for arranging to meet someone he thought was a 13-yearold girl – but who was actually an undercover state police trooper – for sex in a parking lot in Hanover Township, according to court records. Benner was sentenced in October 2005 to two to five years in state prison, and has been incarcerated since. will start issuing citations starting on May 1.

School mergers remain unlikely


OV. TOM CORBETT revisited a proposal his predecessor suggested without success: school district mergers. While touring a factory in Pittsburgh last week, Corbett told reporters : “We’re going to work with school districts and see what they can do. But frankly, I think school districts around the state are going to have to start looking at can they continue to exist -- that there should be a consolidation or a merger somewhere.” Two years ago, then-Gov. Ed Rendell called for school mergers. That idea went nowhere. Ronald J. Tomalis, Corbett’s nominee for state education secretary, said the administration would encourage consolidation but not force it. If history is any indication, nothing much is going to result from that, either. In 2007, Standard & Poor’s rating service studied the possibility of combining some of Pennsylvania’s then 501 public

school districts. It suggested some districts might reap considerable savings and listed 34 potential mergers. But it also said that political barriers might make the merger process difficult. Despite the potential savings, only one merger took place. Since the Standard & Poor’s analysis, several other studies have discounted the potential savings from mergers. But larger school districts don’t necessarily mean more students in each class. Larger school districts can mean there are more students who want to take advanced-placement classes, for example, which in turn means it would be more economical for a larger district to offer them. Nevertheless, the Standard & Poor’s report was absolutely correct about one thing: Political barriers make the merger process difficult. And that’s unlikely to change under any proposal Corbett will make. Reading Eagle, Pa.

Let the facts and figures guide your budget opinion


ost people are aware that statistics can be manipulated to fit their causes, but I offer you a simple “look at this.” If you have Internet access, go to to see the actual budget proposed by Governor Tom Corbett. Don’t let the people say that you don’t like children if you support his budget. Instead do what I did and gather facts that they probably didn’t know. At one time someone told Christopher Columbus he’d fall off the world if he sailed the ocean, so what did he do? He took a shot and found out that wasn’t the case. Here is your Christopher Columbus moment. The budget that Corbett proposed is lower because education lost federal stimulus dollars. The Basic Education Fund is actually 2 percent higher over the appropriation in 2009-2010, which amounts to an increase of $104 million. Every school district is receiving an increase. There is a formula based on student population, English proficiency, poverty and a base rate. Other programs increased include tuition for orphans and children placed in private homes, PA Charter School for deaf and blind (3 million over 09-10), Safe School Initiative ($2 million increase), School Nutrition Incentive program ($460,000 increase), early intervention, and the state contribution to the school employees retirement fund. Unfortunately, to make up for certain raised appropriations there were programs that were cut. Non-public schools will lose 1.77 percent for textbook materials and equipment, money for teacher professional development will take a hit of 66.3 percent. The education of migrant laborers’ children will also lose 16 percent. I didn’t even know this was a line item before checking. I don’t expect everyone to agree because some cuts could be excessive. Jim Testerman, president of the Pennsylvania State Education Association, stated on the association’s website that “The state has made targeted investment in recent years... Student scores have gone up over that period. Cuts like these will take our schools backward.” So I ask Mr Testerman: When the budget for the Basic Education Fund was announced in 2009-10, were the students not counted in there? Mr. Testerman said

“years,” so I ask where his timeline begins and ends because I know where the factual numbers start and end. I’m asking that everyone just read the budget and see the cuts and decide whether you agree or not on your own, because Christopher Columbus had his naysayers who tried to convince him the world was flat. I’m asking that you be Christopher Columbus and see for yourself. It might just shock you when you don’t fall off the edge of the world. Paul Stebbins Jr. West Pittston

Installers dispute costs of sprinkler systems


e would like the opportunity to respond to Peter Restaino’s article, “Builders group seeks revision of sprinkler mandate". We feel compelled to comment on the state House’s vote to repeal the sprinkler mandate law for one- and two -family homes. As installers of sprinkler systems with 40 years combined experience, we believe there are some facts that need to be addressed. The first thing to consider is the cost of a system. A system for a home with approximately 2,000 square feet on city water would cost approximately $3,700, considerably lower than the prices of $5,000 to $10,000 that have been recently quoted. This price would include all system designs and calculations. A system for a house of the same size with a private well would cost approximately $5,700 because of the need for a well pump and storage tank. In regards to private wells, we have heard a lot of talk about the need for back up pumps in order to deal with possible power outages. This is also not true. The National Fire Protection Association code does not require such pumps. We also heard people talking of the increased cost of monitoring these systems. NFPA does


not require this due to the added cost to the homeowner. We think that anyone would agree that you cannot put a value on a human life. When discussing the additional monthly expenses, consider the following: At the above stated price of $3,700 it would add $11 dollars a month to the payment; At the price of $5,700 it would add $16.94 a month. Now let’s consider the savings on Home Owner Insurance Policies, the average savings would be between 10 percent to 15 percent. With a premium of approximately $1,200 per year, your savings would be $10 per month. You can see that the sprinkler system is only costing the homeowner around $1 to $4.94 a month. Some will say hard-wired smoke detectors and certain improvements in homes such as wider stairwells, wider door openings and better building supplies are enough. The increased cost for these are not always discussed because the home builders groups will be benefiting from these costs. A smoke detector is about 98 percent to 99 percent effective in alerting residents to a fire, but these things do not help someone get out of a burning building. It is the smoke that kills most people. When using a sprinkler system you have already decreased your chances of being killed by smoke, as the fire is controlled in its early stage. Keep in mind the items destroyed in a fire will bring increased financial hardship to the homeowner. These statements seem to be left unsaid. When a home is on fire and a sprinkler system is in place, one sprinkler head will put out 7 to 13 gallons a minute, unlike the 1,500 gallons a minute from a fire truck hose. The odds of a sprinkler going off accidentally are the same as your plumbing springing a leak. We feel that most people would argue that sprinklers are not an issue for public safety. It seems easy to say and quite unfair when they aren’t the ones risking their lives running into burning buildings. Ask anyone who has lost someone in a fire. We must insist on broad consensus and consider public opinion when considering this mandate. That is why, when the truth is told it is an easy decision to make.

Health repeal vote falls short Moderate Senate Democrats vote to keep funding president’s overhaul. By DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Tough reelection campaigns looming, a handful of moderate Senate Democrats voted on Thursday to keep the money flowing to President Barack Obama’s health care law despite increasing public opposition to the year-old overhaul. The deal on the spending bill struck by Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., required a separate vote on cutting off money for the yearold health care overhaul. The effort failed, 53-47, falling 13 votes short of the 60 votes needed for passage, but it put lawmakers on record — an outcome relished by Republicans looking ahead to 2012. Moderate Democrats such as Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana and Ben Nelson of Nebraska stood with Obama in endorsing the health care law last March and they voted with their party lead-

ers on Thursday. Abandoning the law now would have drawn charges of flip-flopping. “It’s a dilemma of their own making,” said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, head of the committee that helps elect Republicans. Within minutes of the vote, the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out news releases to Missouri, Montana and Nebraska as well as several other states, criticizing the Democrats on their vote and sounding an overarching theme. "While McCaskill doubles down on her liberal Washington record, Missourians have yet another reason to replace her with a commonsense Republican next year," said Chris Bond, a spokesman for the NRSC. McCaskill had said earlier in the day that she would vote against any effort to cut off money for the law. “I voted for the bill and I think there are real cost savings in the bill,” she said. Nelson defended his vote too, saying, "Nebraska’s families and small businesses can’t afford to continue to pay the hospital bills of those who don’t have health insurance." McCaskill, Tester and Nelson

have drawn GOP rivals in states that either trend heavily Republican (Montana and Nebraska) or stand as electoral battlegrounds (Missouri). Freshman Sen. Joe Manchin has no announced foes in West Virginia and remains popular, but his state voters strongly backed Republican presidential nominee John McCain over Obama by 13 percentage points in 2008. Manchin defended his vote to fund the law, saying in a statement "Democrats and Republicans must work together to keep the good parts and eliminate the bad parts of the health care bill." In Missouri, the sentiment runs against the law. Voters last year overwhelmingly backed a ballot measure that would nullify the health care law. The margin was 3-to-1. Just this week, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a court brief challenging the main provision of the health care law — the requirement that most Americans get insurance. Koster, a Republican turned Democrat, endorsed the effort of more than two dozen governors and attorneys general who have filed suit contending the requirement is unconstitutional.

trillion national debt. “We all know there are tough challenges ahead, from growing our economy to reducing our deficit, but we must build on this bipartisan compromise to tackle these issues and meet the expectations of the American people,” said an administration statement. The bipartisan votes belied a fierce struggle that preceded passage and only narrowly avoided a partial government shutdown a week ago. The tally in the House was 260-167. Among the supporters were 60 of the 87 first-term Republicans, many of them elected with tea party support. Area congressmen Lou Barletta and Tom Marino, both Republicans, voted for the bill. The Senate added its approval a short while later, 81-19, and most of the opponents were conservatives who wanted deeper cuts. Pennsylvania Democratic Sen. Robert Casey voted for the bill, but Republican Sen. Pat Toomey voted against. Even before the final votes, House Republicans pointed eagerly toward a vote Friday on their next move against mounting deficits, a comprehensive budget that claims cuts measured in the trillions, rather than billions, over the next decade. That vote is expected to be as partisan as the spending bill was not. The measure approved Thursday will finance the government through the Sept. 30 end of the budget year, chopping $38 bil-

Barletta, Marino OK deal By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON -- Republican U.S. Reps. Lou Barletta of Hazleton and Tom Marino of Lycoming Township voted for the final budget deal that cuts $38 billion spending for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. Unlike some fellow GOP House freshmen who balked at a budget deal that they didn’t think went far enough, Barletta and Marino said it was a starting point for larger spending reduction efforts that will be part of the 2012 budget debate. “It’s not a perfect deal, but politics is the art of negotiation,” Barletta said, adding before the vote that, “I think we negotiated the best deal we could under the circumstances.” But Barletta noted this was simply a deal on a budget that funds the final few months of the year. “I’m not ready to pop the champagne cork yet. This was just the start,” he said.


“Now the real work begins – the work on the 2012 budget. I think that’s going to be a real challenge. It’s going to be a difficult process. Look at what we just went through to cut billions from the budget. Next, we’re talking about cutting trillions,” he said. Marino, too, said Republicans will try to cut trillions of dollars in spending as part of the 2012 budget proposal. “While this (2011 budget) agreement is only a small step in the right direction, it represents an enormous change in Washington’s traditional ways of spending far outside its means,” Marino said. “These cuts set the stage for addressing fiscal year 2012, when we start chopping trillions – not

It took us decades to reach these historic debt and deficit levels, and we will not undo this mess overnight, but this agreement starts us on the right path.” Democrats have criticized a proposed House GOP budget for 2012, expected to be approved today in the House along party lines, as one that will increase Medicare costs for seniors and cut benefits for Medicaid, the health care program for the poor. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, said this week that “smart cuts and tax reform are required so we can keep Pennsylvania’s economy growing and create jobs. Pennsylvania working families, children and older citizens who have been hit hard by the recession should not bear the brunt of these cuts. Investments must be made in areas like education and research that will lead to long-term economic growth. And eliminating Medicare as we know it is not the right answer.”

Losses from property tax reassessments have hit the district particularly hard, Przywara said, because the district has been ordered to pay back tax overages paid in 2008 and 2009; in other words, money the district has already spent.

for Bonds

ST. LOUIS — Statistical update on Barry Bonds: If my count is accurate, Bonds received the 2,559th walk of his career Wednesday. The first 2,558 came on the baseball diamond. The last walk was issued in a northern California courtroom. Bonds was essentially given a free pass. Baseball’s all-time home-run leader was convicted on a single count of obstruction of justice, but a federal jury couldn’t agree on three other charges regarding Bonds’ alleged false statements to a grand jury over his use of performance-enhancing drugs. Judge Susan Illston declared a mistrial on those charges. The prosecutors could re-file, but legal experts don’t think that will happen. It’s doubtful that Bonds will spend a single day in prison. He’ll have to pay a fine, which he can afford. He may be ordered to provide community service. He could be sentenced to home confinement — and given Bonds’ reclusive ways, I’m guessing he’d be OK with that. And for those of you who believe this will permanently damage Bonds’ image and reputation? Well, I’ve got some flaxseed oil to sell you. He’s already been tarnished beyond repair. Given the voters’ stern and unrelenting view of steroid users, Bonds has no chance of being voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. And that was true before this verdict. Anyone with a functioning brain already knew that Bonds used steroids. Bonds testified to that — while attaching the absurd caveat that he didn’t know what he was taking. Again, no reasonable person believes him; of course Bonds knew what he was doing. Did you really need a federal jury to validate that for you? And at a cost of $55 million? That’s the estimated cost of investigating and prosecuting Bonds during this seven-year battle. As Joe Sheehan of quipped, this was the worst expenditure of $55 million since the Los Angeles Dodgers gave a five-year, $55 million contract to pitcher Darren Dreifort. Indeed. This was a tremendous waste of time and federal resources. And on the surface the ruling made no sense. The jury didn’t find Bonds guilty of perjury on any specific points of testimony and seemed to settle on obstruction as a way to register general disapproval of his conduct. This is fuzzy, to say the least. If the jury doesn’t believe that Bonds perjured himself, then what, pray tell, did he obstruct? Here’s my takeaway: We, the jury, find Barry Lamar Bonds guilty of being unlikable, so we wanted to slap him with something.

Nats can attest, Lee’s at his best The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Back at his best after an unusually brief outing, Cliff Lee struck out 12 in a three-hit shutout Thursday night, allowing the Philadelphia Phillies to overcome their own problems at the plate in a 4-0 victory over the Washington Nationals. Lee (2-1) fooled hitters with darting fastballs across the black of the plate, sweeping changeups in the dirt, and plenty of other right-where-hewanted-them pitches. Quite a turnaround from his previous game, at Atlanta last Friday, when Lee allowed six runs and 10 hits in 3 1-3 innings — his shortest start since Sept. 4, 2009. It’s rare that a guy can be perfect through five innings and not come close to being the evening’s best pitcher — yet that’s exactly what happened to Jordan Zimmermann (1-2). Rockies 6, Mets 5 Rockies 9, Mets 4

NEW YORK — Hot-hitting Troy Tulowitzki belted his major league-leading seventh homer during the second game of a doubleheader, and the Colorado Rockies pounded the New York Mets 9-4 on Thursday to wrap up a four-game series sweep. Tulowitzki also homered in the opener before the Rockies’ bullpen held on in a wild ninth inning for a 6-5 victory. The

sweet-swinging shortstop terrorized New York pitching all series, going deep each game and finishing 10 for 16 with eight RBI. The Rockies (10-2), off to the best start in franchise history, have won five straight and 10 of 11 overall, the lone defeat coming against Pittsburgh in extra innings. Brewers 4, Pirates 1

PITTSBURGH — Randy Wolf had 10 strikeouts and allowed only three hits in 6 2-3 shutout innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wolf (1-2) allowed only two singles, a double and two walks, and didn’t allow a Pittsburgh runner to advance past second base. Marlins 6, Braves 5

ATLANTA — John Buck drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning single and the Florida Marlins held off the Atlanta Braves to win their second straight road series. Buck was 0 for 9 in the series before driving in Gaby Sanchez from second base with the single off Eric O’Flaherty (0-1) to break a 5-5 tie. Astros 1, Padres 0

HOUSTON — Bud Norris and the Houston bullpen combined on a three-hitter, Michael Bourn singled home the only run and the Houston Astros beat the San Diego Padres.


Yanks rally for victory in 10th over Orioles

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Nick Swisher hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the New York Yankees rallied from a five-run deficit for a 6-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles Thursday night to sweep the rain-shortened series. After Joba Chamberlain used his big body to save a run in the eighth by blocking the plate and keeping the Yankees within 5-4, Jorge Posada led off the bottom of the ninth with a tying homer on the first pitch off closer Kevin Gregg. Michael Gonzalez (0-1) walked Mark Teixeira and gave up a double to Alex Rodriguez to start the 10th. After Robinson Cano lined out, Swisher hit a fly and Teixeira easily beat right fielder Nick Markakis’ throw home. Swisher earned the Yankees’ first pie in the face of the season for a gamewinner. Mariano Rivera (1-0) gave up a leadoff single in the 10th. But Derrek Lee grounded into a double play and Vladimir Guerrero grounded out.

Question: Did (personal trainer) Greg (Anderson) ever give you anything that required a syringe to inject yourself with? Bonds: “I’ve only had one doctor touch me. And that’s my only personal doctor. Greg, like I said, we don’t get into each others’ personal lives. We’re friends, but I don’t — we don’t sit around and talk baseball, because he knows I don’t want — don’t come to my house talking baseball. If you want to come to my house and talk about fishing, some other stuff, we’ll be good friends, you come around talking about baseball, you go on. I don’t talk about his

Chamberlain relieved Bartolo Colon in the eighth inning with runners on first and third. Chamberlain threw a pitch in the dirt that went to the backstop, and the ball took a long bounce off the wall as catcher Russell Martin went to retrieve it. Royals 5, Mariners 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Bruce Chen pitched eight strong innings, Wilson Betemit and Alex Gordon drove in two runs apiece and the Kansas City Royals beat the Seattle Mariners in a rainshortened game. The game was called after a delay of 47 minutes in the bottom of the eighth. Rays 4, Twins 3

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Johnny Damon hit a two-run homer with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a victory over the Minnesota Twins. Carl Pavano pitched eight shutout innings for the Twins, but was denied the victory when closer Joe Nathan gave up a two-run double to Matt Joyce in the ninth. business. You know what I mean?” Q: Right. Bonds: “That’s what keeps our friendship. You know, I am sorry, but I was a celebrity child, not just in baseball by my own instincts. I became a celebrity child with a famous father. I just don’t get into other people’s business because of my father’s situation, you see.” In other words, the jury found Bonds guilty of offering a rambling, incoherent answer and for playing dodge ball on that one question when he appeared before the grand jury in 2003. That’s it. There’s your crime. No, it’s not right to mislead or lie to a grand jury. And yes, to quote Mark

McGwire, we know that steroids is bad. Perhaps the personal expense to Bonds — who ran up a reported $3 million to $4 million in legal fees — will dissuade other baseball frauds from lying about steroids. But most baseball players caught in the steroids web are dense, naive and arrogant. Slugger Manny Ramirez just flunked a second drug test and retired in shame; he didn’t learn a thing. Athletes who are determined to cheat and gain an advantage never seem to think that they’ll be discovered. And the Bonds business won’t alter that. And I suppose this can be a so-called teaching moment for parents and their young athletes. Message: Don’t do steroids. Steroids are illegal and

dangerous. And if this verdict provides comfort for Don Hooton, then I am sincerely happy for Don Hooton. He’s the antisteroids activist who testified at the congressional hearings on drug use in baseball. Hooton’s son, Taylor, committed suicide in 2003 after spiraling from extensive use of anabolic steroids. But with all due respect to Mr. Hooton, we’d already reached that stage. The steroids issue has been front and center in the news, in the headlines, in baseball’s Mitchell Report, in congressional hearing rooms and in the courts for several years. Parents, coaches and mentors have had plenty of chances to educate their children. Really, the Bonds verdict

changes nothing. If you hate Bonds, then you’re happy. You just wanted something — anything — to stick to him. You’re furious that he juiced to hit 258 home runs for five seasons late in his career, beginning at age 36. You’re angry that Bonds — and his “cream and the clear” steroids potion — displaced the classy, clean Henry Aaron as baseball’s all-time home-run champion. You didn’t need a jury to find Bonds guilty. He already was guilty in your hearts and minds. If you like Bonds or believe he’s some sort of poor, persecuted victim here, then you’re pleased that he beat the feds on the most serious allegations. Your opinion of Bonds — positive or negative — wasn’t shifted by the jury’s decision.



Wilkes-Barre take control of the game. Golson also played a key role in the win. He ran down a line shot off the bat of Jason Pridie in the top of the eighth that could have easily been a tworun double. The fully-stretched Golson made a diving catch of a ball that seemed headed for the left center field gap. The two out grab ended the inning. “It was really hit hard, but I knew I had a chance to get to it,” Golson said. “I had to stretch as far as I could, but I caught it.” Yankee shorstop Doug Bernier said he had a perfect view of Golson’s catch. “It was awesome,” said Bernier. “I didn’t know if he could get to it, but it was a very important play because they had a runner at third.” Miley said it may have been a game-changer. “It definitely could have been a diferent game if Buffalo had a big inning,” the manager said. The Yankees got three strong innings from spot starter Amaury Sanit, who gave up one run on three hits. Josh Schmidt, Buddy Carlyle and Eric Wordekemper each worked two innings. Wordekemper gave up one run in the eighth, but benefited from Golson’s catch. Buffalo drew first blood, taking a 1-0 lead in the second inning against Sanit. Zach Lutz led off with a single, and then scored on an RBI double by Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tied the score at 1-1 when Vazquez led off the bottom of the second with a home run over the left field fence. The Yankees erupted for three runs in the third inning to take a 4-1 lead. Doug Bernier led off with a single and went to second on a wild pitch. He later scored from third on an RBI single by Jordan Parraz, who came into the game batting .423. Vazquez followed with his second home run of the game, a towering two-run homer to left center. The Yankees broke the game open by taking a 6-1 lead in the sixth inning on a two-run triple by Doug Bernier, which scored Dan Brewer and Jose Gil from second and third, respectively. “I was just looking to drive the ball to the outfield,” Bernier said. “I got the barrel of the bat on it and Brewer and Gil did some great baserunning. “We hit the ball well tonight. Hitting is contagious, and I think everybody fed off Vazquez’ two home runs.” Buffalo trimmed the lead to 6-2 in the eighth inning on an RBI double by Justin Turner. However, Golson’s catch brought the inning to a halt and enabled Scranton/WilkesBarre (4-3) to stay in control.

And this didn’t bring closure to the so-called steroids era, either. Not with Roger Clemens about to go on trial for lying to Congress. Not with the constant debate on the Baseball Hall of Fame, and voters deciding to put the scarlet letter on any player (Jeff Bagwell) suspected of using performanceenhancing drugs. Not with clowns (Ramirez) still getting caught. And not with MLB allowing the Bonds home-run records and other suspicious marks to stand as part of the official record book. No, I am sorry to say that it’s too late to put the cream and the clear back in the bottle. Bernie Miklasz is a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

2-B. The Patriots also picked up a victory toward the Bridge Trophy, which is awarded to the school that wins the most sporting events against the other during the year. “There’s nothing like the Wyoming Area-Pittston Area rivalry. Nothing is held back,” said Pittston Area coach Nicole Tieso, who played in the rivalry back in the late 1990s with Pittston Area. “It’s huge in every sport, and I think it’s getting close for the Bridge.” The victory also lessened some of Pittston Area’s frustration to start the season. The Patriots opened with a one-goal loss to Honesdale. Then came a 100minute scoreless tie with North Pocono followed the next day by a one-goal loss to Wyoming Seminary where the Patriots looked a little heavy legged. Ruby didn’t have any problem racing up and down the field Thursday. She beat a defender about 35 yards from the goal, then outran pursuing Warriors to score in the 33rd minute. The teams then exchanged goals during a furious 10 minutes that enlivened a rather mundane opening 20. Freshman Samantha Acacio scored for Wyoming Area in the 35th minute, only to have Mikitish score three minutes later to put Pittston Area up 2-1. Ruby made it 3-1 early in the second half, once again beating a defender through the penalty area to score. “She is really fast, as are most of our players,” Tieso said. “If you race them, they’re all pretty equal.” So was Acacio, who narrowly missed scoring a few minutes later. Like Ruby, she also broke through the defense, but Pittston Area Jordan Cumbo lunged just far enough to her left to deflect the liner. Katie Scalzo, though, pulled Wyoming Area within 3-2 with about 12 minutes left. Scalzo, one of the WVC’s top midfielders, moved to the attacking line and took a short pass from Kourtney Schwerdtman to score.

Meltdown paves way for Henry, Cink By The Associated Press


Stewart Cink, of Duluth, Ga., waves after a birdie putt on the ninth hole during the first round of the Texas Open golf tournament on Thursday in San Antonio.

SAN ANTONIO — Kevin Na watched his first shot on No. 9 veer badly off course. His next stroke wasn’t any better. Or the next one. Or the 11 after that. Or maybe it was 12. Thirteen? Na himself couldn’t keep track. “I got done with the hole and I said (to my caddie), ’I think I made somewhere between a 10 and a 15,” Na said. “But I think it’s close to a 15.” Try 16. J.J. Henry and former British Open champion Stewart Cink shot 5-under 67s to begin the Texas Open atop the leaderboard, but the spotlight belonged to Na, whose meltdown on the par-4 ninth ranked among the most dreadful in PGA Tour history and sunk his chances after an otherwise impressive first round

Thursday. Adam Scott, riding the momentum of his runner-up finish at the Masters, began his defense of last year’s Texas Open championship strong and was a J.J. Henry stroke back. The Australian shot a 68 and was tied with Charley Hoffman, Jhonattan Vegas, Vaughn Taylor and Kevin Chappell. If it wasn’t for No. 9, Na might’ve been right there with them. Na birdied No. 18 to go 4 under on the other 17 holes. But so dreadful was No. 9 that the score was adjusted three times — first a 14, then 15, and finally, following a lengthy review of a video replay before signing his scorecard, it changed yet

again to a 16. He wound up signing an 8-over 80. The worst single-hole score at a PGA Tour event belongs to John Daly, who had an 18 on the par-5 sixth hole at Bay Hill in 1998. Scott and Geoff Ogilvy, who finished the round two strokes back at 3 under, were in the group behind Na. “There’s some rocks in there and some pretty nasty stuff,” Ogilvy said of the 474-yard ninth. “You don’t have to do a whole lot wrong to have three or four attempts to try and get it out. It becomes a comedy of errors sometimes.” Even Na was smiling by the time he tapped in a 6-footer on the green. “It’s all a blur,” Na said. Here’s what he does remember: his tee shot that sailed into the woods, where Na

eventually found the ball. He called it unplayable and teed off again, but not with better results. Along the way he whiffed one stroke, ricocheted another off his inner thigh, tried two shots left-handed and watched the ball barely sputter forward on another stroke. All while still in the woods. Noren leads Malaysian Open KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Alexander Noren shot an 8-under 64 to take a two-stroke lead in the weather-shortened first day of the Malaysian Open on Thursday. Masters champion Charl Schwartzel (73) struggled after only arriving in the country only a day earlier, while Rory McIlroy (69) was five shots behind Noren in a tie for ninth.



Miller gets the shutout, lifts Sabres past Flyers

Underdog Pacers lacking support

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Ryan Miller stopped 35 shots for his second career postseason shutout and Patrick Kaleta scored to lift the Buffalo Sabres to a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoff series Thursday night. Miller stopped every shot under all types of pressure and carried the Sabres to the clutch opening win. The teams have met eight times in the postseason and the Game 1 winner won the series each time. Kaleta snapped the scoreless tie early in the third period when he powered a rebound past rookie Sergei Bobrovsky. No team was more resilient in last year’s playoffs than the Flyers. They trailed Boston 3-0 in the East semifinals before taking the series and playing until a Game 6 loss to Chicago in the Stanley Cup finals. Game 2 is Saturday in Philadelphia. The Sabres — 10 points out of a playoff spot on Jan. 17 — cracked the scoreless tie 5:56 into the third period on Kaleta’s second career postseason goal.

Buffalo won a fight for the puck along the boards and dumped it across the ice to Marc-Andre Gragnani. He fired a slapper from the top of the circle and Kaleta knocked in the rebound from the low slot for the 1-0 lead. Kaleta was healthy enough to play at a perfect time after missing most of the last month of the season with a bruised knee. Miller was flawless from there and the Sabres — the hottest team in the Eastern Conference since Jan. 1 — are in control. Once a rowdy and devastating home-ice advantage, Philadelphia continues to struggle at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers dropped six straight games at home before snapping that streak in the season finale. They now have a Game 1 loss after dropping Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals here last season. Canadiens 2, Bruins 0 BOSTON — Carey Price returned as Montreal’s starting playoff goalie with his third postseason shutout, Brian Gionta scored twice and the Canadiens opened the series with a win over the Boston Bruins.

By CLIFF BRUNT AP Sports Writer


Buffalo Sabres players and fans celebrate after a goal by Patrick Kaleta in the third period a first-round NHL playoff game against the Philadelphia Flyers Thursdayin Philadelphia.

Price started one of the Canadiens 19 playoff games last year when they reached the Eastern Conference finals. Jaroslav Halak started the others but was

traded to the St. Louis Blues in June. This season Price started 70 games and on Thursday he turned aside 31 shots.


Mediation resumes in NFL, players dispute By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — The NFL and its locked-out players started talking again, and they talked all day. The only sign of progress or productivity, though, was the nine hours or so both sides spent in the federal courthouse on Thursday. Sworn to secrecy about specifics of the court-ordered mediation, neither the league nor the players provided much insight about where they’re at in their dispute over the division of this $9 billion business. They’ll meet again on Friday. Commissioner Roger Goodell, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, Kansas City Chiefs

PSU Continued from Page 1B

“It was a big learning curve. It really tested my character, helped me become more of a man. On the field it made me realize what I’m here for. You start to treat every day as your last, every practice as your last.” Back at full strength for spring practice and up to 298 pounds, Stankiewitch will be at center for Saturday’s Blue-White Game and heads into his junior season as the projected starter at the position. The Blue Mountain High School grad would be the fourth different starting center for the Nittany Lions in the last four seasons, following Klopacz, Stefen

overseeing this round of mediation. Sixteen days of mediated sessions in Washington failed to secure a new labor pact. Goodell stepped away from the session to join a teleconference with 5,300 Cleveland Browns season-ticket holders for 20 minutes. He would not characterize the negotiations, which are supposed to remain confidential, but did reiterate the importance of the sides getting together. “I can tell you that it’s a positive step when the parties are talking,” he said. “We saw the March 11 proposal as responsive to issues raised by the players and there are many attractive elements in it. ... Our entire focus is on getting a deal done.”

INDIANAPOLIS — Reggie Miller doesn’t give the Indiana Pacers much of a chance in their first-round playoff series against the top-seeded Chicago Bulls. The clutch shooter who helped put the Pacers on the map before his retirement is happy that his beloved team has reached postseason play for the first time since 2006, but even he admits the odds are stacked against them. The Bulls had the best record in the league this season and are on a tear heading into Saturday’s Game 1 in Chicago. The young Pacers, meanwhile, are the only team in the playoffs with a losing record. “Hopefully, they’ll be successful,” said Miller, a TNT NBA analyst. “I doubt it, but they can lick their wounds together, and that’s how a team grows.” The Pacers are aware that they are heavy underdogs, and it has gotten under their collective skin. “We hear people talking about Chicago’s second-round matchup, who they’re going to play,” Indiana center Roy Hibbert said. “We hear that. That’s in the back of our minds.” “We hear it, and rightfully so,” Indiana point guard Darren Collison added. “We’re the last seed in the playoffs. They’re supposed to say that. It don’t matter.” Pacers interim coach Frank Vogel hasn’t hesitated to use Indiana’s underdog status as a tool. “This team has succeeded a lot this year by feeling like they’ve been disrespected, told they’re not good enough, and it drives them,” he said. Reaching the playoffs is an important step for the franchise, which has been rebuilding since the brawl between Pacers players and Detroit Pistons fans at The Palace of Auburn Hills in 2004. Numerous issues in the following years led the team to part with its nucleus of Ron Artest, Jermaine O’Neal, Stephen Jackson and Jamaal Tinsley. After the overhaul, the team became extremely young. Just one Pacers starter, Danny Granger, has been in the league for more than three years. That’s why Pacers president Larry Bird, a three-time NBA champion with the Boston Celtics, said this playoff experience is a key part of Indiana’s rebuilding effort. “I knew after my first playoff experience in the early ’80s that I had a lot of work to do if I wanted to win a championship,” he said. “This is a great opportunity for

owner Clark Hunt, Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft were among those on hand for the closed-door session with U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan. NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith was joined by attorneys, linebackers Ben Leber and Mike Vrabel, as well as Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller. “We had a full day. It was constructive to get together,” said Jeff Pash, the NFL’s lead negotiator. “The chief magistrate judge is working very hard, and I give him a lot of credit for really trying to move the parties toward a solution.” Neither he nor Goodell would elaborate on the day’s events.

“We pledged confidentiality,” the commissioner said. Smith was mum, too. “We’ll be back tomorrow,” he said as he walked away. So how long might this go? “The court has indicated it wants to continue with everyone talking as long as it makes sense,” said Michael Hausfeld, one of the attorneys for the players. It was the first time the two sides have sat down to talk since March 11, when the collective bargaining agreement expired, the union was dissolved to clear the way for a court fight and the NFL wound up with its first work stoppage since the monthlong strike in1987. With the lockout at 33 days and counting and the 2011 season in peril, Boylan is

Wisniewski and A.Q. Shipley. He will likely be joined by three returning starters on the line – Quinn Barham at left tackle, Troutman at left guard and Chima Okoli at right tackle. John Urschel and DeOn’tae Pannell have split first-team reps at right guard this spring. Stankiewitch has two career starts under his belt, getting the nod at left guard to open the 2009 season. “It was great to get me experience,” he said. “It’s different when you’re actually out there to have that experience and see what kind of pace the game was. “It helped me slow it down. You think better, you react more quickly. It was a great learning curve for me and hopefully I can contribute more this year.”

these young guys to get some experience, and we’ll see what happens.” The opportunity almost didn’t come. The Pacers fired coach Jim O’Brien after a 17-27 start, and things were uncertain — Miller said those situations are usually “death sentences.” Vogel took over, and the confident 37-year-old immediately declared that the Pacers were going to make the playoffs. He re-established Hibbert, a skilled 7-foot-2 center, as a go-to player. He gave Collison more freedom to create and replaced the team’s constant ill-advised 3-point shots with “smashmouth basketball,” a style that emphasizes attacking the basket to take advantage of the team’s athletic ability. The Pacers responded by winning seven of their first 10 under their new leader before the AllStar break. The mood in the locker room changed as Vogel’s confidence filtered down to his players. “It was a pretty soft schedule, but still, a win is a win in this league,” Miller said. “What it did is it gained confidence for coach Vogel and for the assistants.” Vogel started taking chances, eventually moving rookie Paul George and second-year forward Tyler Hansbrough into the starting lineup. The team finished 2018 in the regular season under Vogel. “How else will these young guys ever learn unless they’re thrown in the fire?” Miller said. “How else is Larry Bird and the rest of his staff going to be able to evaluate this young talent unless they play?” Because of the relative youth and inexperience on the team, Miller believes Granger will have to play at a higher level for Indiana to make noise in the postseason. The forward averages 20.5 points and 5.4 rebounds. “This team will go as far as Danny will take them because no one else on that team can do what Danny can do,” Miller said. “And that’s put the ball in the basket and put a lot of pressure on opposing defenses. Really, it falls on his shoulders. I hope he accepts that. If they are to be successful against the Bulls, Danny has to have an incredible series. He has to put the fear of God in the Bulls.” Bird said the Pacers have to be aggressive against the Bulls.

teams? Wallace said that despite no penalties being called in the second and third periods of the first matchup, things did get chippy and that may have carried over to Dec. 10. “Both of us were ready to get things going,” he said. “It just kind of happened.” While Wallace didn’t think the first fight against Marks alone sparked the rivalry with Norfolk, he didn’t expect it to lead to such bitter feelings and 21 more fights. “I didn’t expect that. It certainly created a rivalry between the two teams and it’s been a battle all year.” After Wallace’s fight with Marks, Jesse Boulerice squared off with Admirals tough guy Pierre-Cedric Labrie, and seconds later Geoff Walker did the same with Norfolk’s Chris Durno. Chris Collins was the other wing on the line for the opening faceoff, and he watched as one winger after another climbed over the boards for the faceoff, dropped the gloves and went to the penalty box. Collins said he had no clue any of it was going to happen, but he knew that a rivalry was being born. “(Bryan) Lerg was playing center and we were talking to the wingers on their team and they didn’t know what was going on either,” Collins said. “But from then on it’s been a war.” A war that is expected to be extremely intense as the two teams fight to make it through the first round of the Calder cup playoffs. “There’s going to be a whole lot of bad feelings,” said Zach Sill, who has had two fights against Norfolk in the regular season. “You don’t know how it’s going to turn out when you get on the ice – fights or you just put your head down and play hard. Either way, it seems like its fine with both teams.”

AGITATORS Continued from Page 1B

During their eight regular season games against the Admirals, the Penguins have four players with at least 30 penalty minutes. Among them is Brett Sterling, a proven goal scorer who also happens to be an effective agitator who racked up 35 penalty minutes in six regular season games against Norfolk. Sterling led the Penguins with 27 goals and 53 points during the season, and he also compiled an impressive 88 penalty minutes. His role as a goal scorer is well known, but Sterling’s work as an agitator makes his game complete. “I’d much rather score a goal, but sometimes if you’re not scoring you have to get guys off their games,” Sterling said. “Sometimes I have to get into that role.” Sterlingplayedtheagitatorrole in a big way when the Penguins met the Admirals on Dec. 11 during a fight-filled contest. In that

game, Sterling led the Penguins with 27 penalty minutes, including a fighting major, misconduct and a game misconduct. But it wasn’t just against Norfolk that Sterling decided to be a thorn in his opponents’ side. It’s a role he playedconsistentlythroughoutthe yearandonethat–whencombined withhisabilitytoscoreagoal,effectively knocked opponents off their game. “I don’t think I’m a very liked guy on the ice, but that’s fine with me,” Sterling said. “As long as I’m

liked by my teammates and I’m helping our team win games, I don’t care what the other team thinks.” Sterling doesn’t have to worry about being liked by his teammates. They appreciate him for the goals he scores as well as for his ability to rile up the opposing team. “He’s a small guy that plays big,” said head coach John Hynes. “He makes a lot of guys mad,” added Sill. “But it’s like we have 20

was no slouch either, posting 23 wins, 2.44 GAA and a .905 save percentage. Together they combined to allow the fewest goals in the AHL (183), and Thiessen Thiessen was stellar in four starts against Norfolk this season (3-1, 1.86, .935). Norfolk – Cedric Desjardins and Dustin Tokarski may not have numbers like Thiessen and Curry, but they are both proven AHL netminders. Tokarski led the way with 21 wins on the Desjardins season, but he also had 20 losses and a mediocre 2.65 GAA and .901 save percentage. Desjardins won both of his starts against the Penguins this season, allowing a total of five goals. Edge: Penguins. Special Teams Penguins – Brett Sterling leads the way with 10 power play goals, but overall the Penguins with the man advantage rank just 19th in the league, converting 17.3 percent. But Sterling that number could rise at home, as Norfolk’s penalty kill was a lowly 78.3 percent on the road. The Penguins penalty killers are a precise bunch who take great pride in clearing the puck. They ranked 8th in the AHL at 83.6 percent. Norfolk – Marc-Antoine Pouliot’s 12 power play goals accounts for almost half of his season total. He’s deadly. So is Paul Szczechura (9 ppg’s) and defenseman Troy Milam (8 ppg’s). Overall, Norfolk’s power play was ninth in the league (19.3 percent) and even better on the road, converting on guys who are agitators out there.

almost 21 percent of its chances. The Admirals’ penalty kill isn’t as stellar, however, ranking 16th overall Ritola (81.4 percent) and a lowly 24th on the road. Edge: Penguins. Against Norfolk this season, their power play was an amazing 8for-29 – 27.6 percent. Pivotal Player Penguins – Bryan Lerg finished up the regular season with nine points (four goals, five assists) in his last eight games. Two of his goals were game-winners. Lerg has the skill and the nerves to buckle down and produce in big games. Norfolk – Mattias Ritola finished the regular season with 21 points in 10 games, including nine goals. In the last meeting against the Penguins, Ritola had a goal and two assists. Prediction: Head coach John Hynes has proven he can lead the Penguins through any type of challenging situation thrown their way. Norfolk’s unique 1-3-1 forecheck will test Hynes, but he’s a master of the X’s and O’s. The Admirals may have the more potent offense, but the Penguins have Hynes behind the bench and the AHL’s top goaltender in net. Penguins in six. Quick Hits The Penguins’ top two leading scorers against Norfolk in the regular season were both defensemen. Corey Potter had eight points and Steve Wagner had six. The Penguins and Admirals NHL parent clubs – Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay, are also battling each other in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. -- Tom Venesky

Ford F-150 recall grows Under pressure from government safety regulators, Ford Motor Co. is expanding a recall of the popular F-150 pickup truck to include nearly 1.2 million vehicles that may have defective air bags. The additional recall, announced Thursday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, covers trucks from the 2004 through 2006 model years. An electrical short can cause the air bags to deploy unexpectedly, in some cases injuring drivers. In February, Ford agreed to fix 150,000 of the trucks but resisted the government’s wishes to recall all 1.2 million trucks that may have the problem. Ford’s F-Series pickup is the topselling vehicle in America, and the F-150 makes up about 60 percent of F-Series sales. Through March, the company sold nearly 127,000 of the pickups. The F-Series also includes heavier duty trucks such as the F-250 and F-350. The company said that it will notify all owners in May that they should take their trucks to a dealer who will replace an air bag wire in the steering wheel. The repair takes less than a half day, the company said. The wire can become chafed, causing a short circuit that can lead to the airbag inflating unexpectedly.

Of all the applicants in search of a Category 3 casino license, the one chosen by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Thursday poses the least amount of competition to Northeast Pennsylvania’s three venues. The board, by a 6-1 vote, selected Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Fayette County, southwestern Pennsylvania, for the state’s last available “resort” license. The Category 3 permit allows 600 slot machines and, if the board approves it separately, 50 table games.

The state’s combined licensing fee is $12.5 million, and a hefty cut of gambling profits also goes to reduce local taxes, underwrite civic construcSoper tion projects, subsidize the horse-racing industry and aid volunteer firefighting squads. Besides Nemacolin, the state considered applications from three other venues: the Fernwood Hotel & Resort in Bushkill, the Eisenhower Conference Center near Gettysburg and a Holiday Inn in suburban Harrisburg.

Fernwood, in Eastern Monroe County, just south of the Pike County line, was viewed by some area casinos as unwanted and unneeded competition. In November, the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem and Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township contested the application of The Bushkill Group Inc. The closest casino to the proposed Fernwood site, Mount Airy Resort near Mount Pocono, also in Monroe County, did not contest it. See LICENSE, Page 10B

Fat-blocker is targeted For the second time in five years, public health advocates are calling on the Food and Drug Administration to ban a fat-blocking drug sold over-the counter and via prescription, pointing to new reports of kidney stones and pancreatic damage. Public Citizen filed a petition with the FDA Thursday calling on the agency to remove GlaxoSmithKline’s Alli and Roche’s Xenical from the market. Alli is sold over-the-counter while Xenical, a higher dose of the drug, is only available with a doctor’s prescription. Public Citizen says it identified 47 cases of acute pancreatitis and 73 kidney stones among patients taking the drugs. The reports were culled from the FDA’s public database of negative drug reactions.

The government’s Consumer Price Index for March is expected to be as painful as the reading was the previous month. Economists are predicting that the CPI will match February’s increase of 0.5 percent. That was the largest increase since June 2009. Higher prices for food and gas were behind that jump. Prices for many goods and services are likely to keep rising as companies pass along their higher costs to their customers.

Art of saving jobs

Local graphic arts firm reverses outsourcing



ALLAS TWP. -- Lynn Banta is bringing jobs back from overseas and preventing more from going there. Banta and her company – Outsourcing USA – are featured in the current issue of Editor & Publisher. The story highlights how Banta has taken jobs back from India and prevented others from going there. Outsourcing USA, located in the Twin Stacks complex in Dallas Township, contracts with 25 newspapers across the U.S. and Banta expects to have 100 people working for her by June. And more jobs – mostly graphic artists – could be on the way if Banta’s

business continues to grow. The company’s employees create ads for newspapers and magazines, Banta said, with clients such as the San Francisco Chronicle and the Orange County register – two major California newspapers. Banta and her husband, Rick, purchased the Twin Stacks complex in 1997, and Outsourcing USA started up in May 2009. The story in E&P states: “The company, founded in the second quarter of 2009, designs advertisements for newspaper publishers, advertising agencies, and commercial printers. They can create print (including 3-D), Web, and mobile ads (in HTML 5). In

addition, Outsourcing USA offers editorial-page building and photo-toning. Even though the firm hires a lot of college students, that doesn’t mean the expectations are lower. All potential employees take a test during the hiring process, and, if hired, they are required to participate in a rigorous onemonth training process.” Banta, 60, is a 1968 graduate of Wyoming Valley West High School and graduated from law school. A native of Luzerne, Banta said newspapers are looking to outsource their classified and display advertising to control costs. She said another major See JOBS, Page 10B

Car parts shortage looming because of quake The Yomiuri Shimbun

TOKYO — Major automobile manufacturers have started formulating selfimposed rules over parts purchases to avoid a frantic scramble among firms competing for essential components amid expected shortages caused by the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, it was learned Thursday. The cooperation was sparked by the anticipation of a serious lack of semiconductors as soon as this summer, according to industry sources, who suggested other industries would likely take similar action. Honda Motor Co. and other major carmakers have gradually restarted automobile production at domestic fac-

tories this week, but some parts are in short supply because of damage incurred by many component makers in the devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami. To avoid a purchase war over car parts, major automakers including Toyota Motor Corp., Nissan Motor Co. and Honda have begun discussions over how to share the available supply, the sources said. The prime target for the self-imposed purchasing rules is expected to be semiconductors for automobiles, which are known as microcontrollers and used in automobile engines and brakes, but other parts will likely also be included. Renesas Electronics Corp. holds 42

percent of the global automobile microcontrollers market. The company’s main factory in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki Prefecture, was knocked out of commission by the earthquake, and a supply shortage is widely seen as inevitable. To deal with the looming problem, the auto industry has begun working on a plan to set purchase amounts for semiconductors for each company based on past order records, the sources said. U.S. and European automakers that buy parts from Renesas are also expected to be part of the discussions. It is projected that the shortage of semiconductors and other parts will be long lasting.

WASHINGTON — More people applied for unemployment benefits last week, the first increase in three weeks. Still, the broader trend points to a slowly healing jobs market. The government says applications for unemployment benefits rose 27,000 to a seasonally adjusted 412,000 for the week ended April 9. That left applications at their highest point since mid-February. Applications near 375,000 are consistent with a sustained increase in hiring. Applications peaked during the recession at 659,000. The four-week average of applications, a less volatile measure, rose to 395,750. However, applications have dropped about 6 percent over the past two months. At the same time, businesses have stepped up hiring. “The picture we still get — even with this one-week pop — is that the labor market is getting better,” said economist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advisors. “The unemployment claims trend over an extended period of time is positive.” Companies added more than 200,000 jobs in March for the second straight month, the first time that has happened since 2006. The unemployment rate fell to a two-year low of 8.8 percent and has dropped a full percentage point since November. However, a more sobering reason for the drop is that the number of people who are either working or seeking a job is surprisingly low for this stage of the recovery. People without jobs who aren’t looking for one aren’t counted as unemployed. Once they start looking again, they’re classified as unemployed, and the unemployment rate can go back up.

STATE’S RATE DECLINES Pennsylvania’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.8 percent in March, down from 8.0 percent in February 2011. March’s rate was down a full percentage point from March 2010, the largest over-the-year decline since August 1987. Pennsylvania’s seasonally adjusted civilian labor force – the number of people working or looking for work – was up 3,000 in March to 6,364,000. Resident employment rose by 20,000 to 5,869,000 while the number of unemployed residents fell 17,000 to 495,000, its lowest level since March 2009. Pennsylvania’s labor force was up 1,000 from its March 2010 level. Seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs in Pennsylvania were down 1,700 in March to 5,670,100. Seven of the 11 supersectors added jobs in March, but declines in the rest outweighed the gains. The largest increase was in Trade, Transportation & Utilities, which was up 3,000 to 1,087,900, while the largest decrease was in Professional & Business Services, down 4,200. Mining & Logging increased for the 22nd consecutive month, up 700 in March to 30,700, the highest level since 1990. Pennsylvania’s job count was up 76,500 (1.4 percent) from March 2010; nationally, nonfarm jobs were up 1.3 million (1.0 percent) from last March.

Mohegan still plans hotel

Continued from Page 9B


Bobby Soper, chief executive officer of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, said the reason his facility filed a request to be heard as a challenger to the Bushkill request was “very simple.” “We have the smallest market in the state,” Soper said. “We already have two casinos. Any additional facilities will cannibalize existing revenues. To locate another casino in Northeast Pennsylvania will have an adverse impact.” On Thursday, moments after the board’s vote, Soper said he was in agreement with the decision not to grant a license to Fernwood. “I think it was the logical decision not to put another casino in a saturated and small market.” As to Nemacolin, he called it “a nice resort” and noted it was the one applicant that would have “the least impact on our business.” “Fernwood would be the only property that could have potentially had any impact on us,” Soper said. Of the four applicants, the Gettysburg site drew the most opposition and many of those opponents packed into the meeting room at the Pennsylvania State Museum on Thursday. The Gettysburg site generated opposition from some Civil War preservationists who worried that gambling would sully the area’s historic character and dishonor the sacrifice of soldiers who died there. Opponents of the Gettysburg site who attended the meeting Thursday hugged and cried after the vote. Nemacolin’s founder, 84 Lumber Chief Executive Officer Joe Hardy, said he felt like he won the Super Bowl. “We’re thrilled,” Hardy said after board members voted. “I mean, I’d like to jump up in the air. It’s something that’s really going to make Nemacolin. We have all these amenities and that ties in beautifully.” Nemacolin is about 50 miles

PLAINS TWP. – Plans for an on-site hotel/resort complex at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs are still in the works but are progressing slowly. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs President Bobby Soper said the holdups are “things I can’t disclose but it’s related to financing.” A year ago, Soper said the long-discussed hotel and conference center would be financed and built by a developer, but the casino would operate the 300-room, nine-story facility. At the time, he said a memorandum of understanding had been signed between the casino and a hotel developer that could lead to ground being broken by the end of 2010 on the casino’s Plains Township property. On Thursday, Soper said “There is currently no legally binding agreement, but there continues to be efforts made to finalize a deal with our developer to move forward with the hotel consistent with the memorandum of understanding. “While the structure of the relationship could be altered, it is contemplated that the developer will finance and build the hotel and we would operate and manage it.” He declined to name the developer. Soper said the new groundbreaking date could be the end of this year. As one sign of progress, the casino has stopped booking use of its Seasons Ballroom past October. “I wish I could say we’re doing it because we know we’re going to be building, but right now it’s precautionary,” Soper said. He said that if ground is broken on the site, “it could impact that room.” The ballroom seats up to 280 and is used for galas, fundraisers and other gatherings.






sion, but when all was said and done the Board felt the Nemacolin project best fit the intent of the Gaming Act and was best overall for Pennsylvania,” said board Chairman Gregory C. Fajt. “This decision was the result of a tremendous amount of work by our staff and many citizens of the Commonwealth who took the time to provide the board with their views both pro and con on each of the projects.” Pennsylvania’s gambling regulators have now awarded licenses to 13 applicants since 2006 and revoked one of them that was slated for Philadelphia. Ten casinos are operating. In addition to Nemacolin, the board previously awarded the only other available Category 3 license to the Valley Forge Convention Center. The Associated Press contributed to this story.




racy Kuhms, a fishing boat owner from Louisiana and a Gulf Coast resident affected by last year’s BP drilling rig oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, talks to the media Thursday outside the conference center where BP held its annual general meeting of its shareholders in London. The meeting got off to a rowdy start on Thursday as crowds of protesters watched over by police held noisy demonstrations outside the venue.

southeast of Pittsburgh in the Laurel Highlands. It offers 335 rooms, suites, cabins or luxury homes, 31,000-square-feet of meeting and banquet facilities, and numerous guest amenities including golf, cross country skiing, an antique car museum, a shooting academy, wildlife habitats, mountain bike trails, an equestrian center, a spa and fitness center, and five swimming pools. In addition, Nemacolin has 14 retail stores in a 55,000 square foot shopping arcade. Hardy and his daughter are well-known in Harrisburg as generous donors to political campaigns in the past, although the law precludes casino owners from making such contributions. St. Louis-based Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. will build and operate the $50 million project. “This was a challenging deci-


announcement about the company will be coming soon. “Every one of the jobs we have here either came back from India or would have gone there,” Banta said. “Some things, I understand, should be made overseas. But there are many, many more that shouldn’t be.” Banta said her company competes with companies in India all the time. She said there really isn’t another U.S. company that does what hers does. She said 60 to 70 percent of all the work her company does was taken back from India. She said she pays reasonable salaries with bonuses based on error rate and productivity and a good benefit package in a strict production environment. “We can turn around ads – for print and the web – quicker and with a less than a .5 percent error rate,” Banta said. “We hire cutting edge talent that can offer ad-

vertising on an I-phone today. Most newspapers can’t do that.” She said her employees are offered the opportunity to make good salaries by performing well. “This is no place for negativity,” she said. The Twin Stacks complex has a gym and a day care on-site for employees to use, Banta said. “We’re hiring people with InDesign experience,” she said. “There are 14 colleges and universities – all with graphics de-

sign programs – within a 45-minute radius of our building. A lot of them can’t find work around here. We hope to hire them.” Outsourcing USA recently earned a “Moving America Forward” award and Banta went to California to accept it from William Shatner of “Star Trek” fame. “These are exciting times,” she said.

Investing in Cubes

The popular exchange-traded fund known as “The Cubes” is getting an extreme makeover. The Cubes’ real name is the PowerShares QQQ (QQQ). The ETF has the same makeup as the Nasdaq 100 index, which contains the 100 largest non-financial stocks in the Nasdaq Stock Market. The Cubes appeals to investors who want to own big technology stocks like Apple, Microsoft, Cisco and Intel. Tech stocks make up about 60 percent of the Nasdaq 100 – and in turn, the Cubes. Companies like Starbucks, Costco and Whole Foods are also members of the Cubes. The Nasdaq 100 was in the news last week after Nasdaq decided to rebalance, or change the weighting, of stocks in the index. A stock’s weight in an index is a percentage based on its

market capitalization. Apple’s stock had risen so much that it had a disproportionate share of the index at 20 percent. After the rebalancing on May 2, Apple will have 12 percent. The Cubes will change so the ETF will be in sync with the index. About 100 mutual funds and

ETFs track the index. But Ryan Leggio, an analyst at Morningstar, recommends the Cubes because the ETF is one of the cheapest ways to invest in the Nasdaq 100. The Cubes has an expense ratio of 0.2 percent. Mutual funds like the Rydex Nasdaq-100 (RYOCX) have expense ratios of 1.3 percent or higher. The Cubes has about $24 billion in assets. The ETF is often one of the mostly heavily traded securities on any given day, says John Jacobs, Nasdaq’s executive vice president. The Cubes has had a return of 38 percent over the past 10 years, while the S&P 500 index has returned 34 percent. The ETF is lagging the S&P 500 this year. It has returned 4 percent. The S&P 500 has returned 5 percent. So the Cubes looks a little cheaper than the broader market.

These funds track the Nasdaq 100 index. All of them have three-star ratings or higher from Morningstar and relatively low expense ratios. EXPENSE MINIMUM RATIO INVESTMENT

Another rather chilly air mass from Canada has arrived this morning with a northeast wind. This will serve to generate some cloudiness today and to keep afternoon temperatures below 60. A storm approaching from the mid west tonight will veer the wind toward the southeast, and rain will arrive during the day tomorrow probably by the noon hour. A windswept rain will last into Saturday night as temperatures hover in the upper 40s. The wind may gust to 40 mph in higher elevations. Another cold front will pass, and Sunday looks dry with limited sunshine and cool temperatures. - Tom Clark

NATIONAL FORECAST: A storm system will generate showers and thunderstorms from the Gulf Coast through the Ohio Valley. Strong to severe storms will be possible especially in the south. Rain will fall to the northwest of this system, with some snow over the northern Plains. A pair of storm system will be responsible for wet weather from the portions of the northern Rockies through the Northwest.
