EDWARDSVILLE – David Tevet is doing his part to end childhood hunger in Luzerne County. Tevet, owner of Ollie’s, An American Restaurant, in Edwardsville, in mid-February started a pilot nonprofit program to deliver nutritionally balanced meals cooked at his restaurant to area children in need for free. The Dinners for Kids program

began with a group of 40 children referred by Luzerne County Children and Youth Services and administrators in the Wyoming Valley West School District, funding the program at a cost of about $400 per week from his own pocket and even delivering some meals himself. Because he owns a restaurant and can order food wholesale, Tevet said he can reduce the production cost of meals to about $1.70 each, and by using volunteers to pack and deliver meals he can eliminate those costs as well. That doesn’t mean he skimps on quality. Tevet consulted two nutritionists in designing bal-

Wilkes will settle age lawsuit

Three women claimed they were fired by the university because of their age. Times Leader Staff

SCRANTON – Wilkes University has agreed to settle a federal lawsuit filed by three women who claimed they were fired because of their age. Carol Dippre, of Shickshinny; Kathleen Diekhaus, of Nanticoke, and Jocelyn Reese of Wilkes-Barre, filed suit in 2009, alleging the university fired them from their positions in

2006 so that it could give the posts to younger workers. According to the suit, each of the women was advised their positions were being eliminated as part of reorganization within the university. Dippre and Reese were employed in the school’s procurement office and Diekhaus employed in the graduate studies program. The university provided the women the opportunity to apply for other positions, for which they were hired. Despite repeated requests, the school failed to provide proper training for them to learn the new posi-

tions, which led to their terminations. The suit, filed by attorney Carl Greco of Scranton, alleged the university’s actions violated the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act. U.S. District Magistrate Judge Thomas Blewitt filed court papers on Friday advising the court that the case had settled. Details of the settlement were not available Friday. Neither Greco nor attorney Gerald Hanchulak of Scranton, who represented Wilkes, immediately returned a phone message Friday seeking comment.

Burke recuses himself from probe of Lokuta complaint

Luzerne County President Judge Thomas Burke recused himself from an investigation into a complaint filed by former Judge Ann Lokuta against a court employee. In a press release Friday, Burke said his decision was based on a prior professional relationship with an interested party. Burke said that the other county judges assigned the matter to Burke Judge Lewis Wetzel. Lokuta filed the complaint with Burke on Tuesday over what she said was a sexist comment by Jim Dougherty at the sentencing of former Judge Michael Toole in federal court Scranton on April 8. According to a report in the Citizens’ Voice, Dougherty said, “The men’s room is over there.” The statement was directed at another person trying to find the men’s room, said Dougherty, who works in the county’s protection from abuse office. Burke said that Paul McGarry, human resources administrator, will conduct the investigation. The outcome will be reviewed by the court administrator and president judge. RICE TWP.

Cunningham, charged with hiding heroin packets on infant, faces up to seven years on endangerment count. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Larksville man charged with his role in hiding 30 heroin packets in the diaper of an infant pleaded guilty Friday to related charges. Robert Cunningham, 32, of Howard Street, entered the plea before Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley to charges of criminal conspiracy and endangering the welfare of children. Polachek Gartley said Cunningham will be sentenced via video from the State Correctional Institution at Somerset where he is currently locked up, but did not set a sentencing date. Cunningham is incarcerated on an unrelated access device fraud charge. He faces three and a half to seven years in prison on the endangering charge.

By JOHN KRISPIN jkrispin@timesleader.com

A young girl with ties to the Wyoming Valley will be the beneficiary of a fundraiser held in West Chester today. Josie Basta, 7, of Downingtown, was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy late last year. She is the daughter of Joe Basta, formerly of Kingston, who attended Wyoming Valley West High School and King’s College. “Initially, the doctors thought she had a stomach bug or that she was dehydrated,” said Josie’s aunt, Holly Devenney of Chester Springs. “It turns out that it was a virus that affected her heart. The doctors still haven’t been able to find out what the virus was.” Doctors at Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., a specialty hospital where Josie is staying, recommended a lifesaving heart transplant. Due to the overwhelming costs of operations, future hospital service bills and medications, the fundraiser is taking place to curb the expenses for Josie’s family. According to a press release, The Children’s Organ Transplant Association, COTA, is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-needy patients. Today’s event, “The Beat Goes On Concert and Silent Auction,” at the

Chester County Historical Society’s Cultural Center in West Chester, will be pooling the funds necessary to cover the $1 million in expenses for the Basta family. With more than 200 people expected at the event, along with the entertainment of regional musicians, the goal of $150,000 to be raised is in sight. “We have gone around to businesses

to request items for a live and silent auction. Businesses and individuals have given their time and talent to Josie, and for that we are grateful,” said Devenney, also a Wyoming Valley native. While this has taken a toll on the Basta family, Devenney admits Josie remains in high hopes for her future. “It’s funny because she is a typical 7year-old. Mostly she wants to see her friends and get home, leading a normal 7-year-old life. Even though she is on the machine (The Berlin Heart Pump), she is able to walk around. The machine is big, but her mental and emotional state is healthy.” Josie is the daughter of Joseph and Marjorie Basta, and the sister of Timothy Basta. Her grandparents are Joe and Diane Basta, and Nancy and Harold Guckes.

Brian Bonner of Springbrook Township filed suit against the SWB Yankees LLC earlier this year, claiming he was routinely required to work in excess of 40 hours per week, but was not paid overtime as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act. WILKES-BARRE

Council names four streets

At Thursday night’s city council meeting, council approved the naming of four new streets that are part of the Murray-Courtright housing project on the site of a former lace mill. Construction has begun on the project and when completed, 10 single-family homes, eight duplex-style homes and six units containing 12 rentals for the elderly will be built by Housing Development Corp. The four streets will be named Atkins Lane, McGowan Kadluboski Street, Morris Lane

and Lace Mill Lane. Magdalene and Margaret Iskra of North End asked council to persuade the administration to name one of the streets in memory of Father Joseph Murgas, former pastor at Sacred Heart Church and a noted painter and scientist. Council said the street names can’t be changed and will recommend Father Murgas be considered in the future. Council also amended an ordinance that limits a resident’s comments to 5 minutes. The amendment states no one can transfer unused time to anyone else. Last month, council denied Bob Kadluboski’s request for 5 minutes for each of four topics he hoped to discuss.

Accident kills L-L board member Farrell

By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

A member of the Lake-Lehman School Board was killed Thursday night in a one-car crash on State Route 29 in Noxen. State police at Tunkhannock said John Peter Farrell, 46, of Harveys Lake, failed to negotiate a curve and lost control of a 1987 Chevrolet Corvette that struck a tree. The crash occurred around 11 p.m. approximately one-half mile south of Simon’s Auto Parts, and Farrell was pronounced dead at

er’s assessment. Obama urged swift action, saying he doesn’t want the United States to get close to a deadline that would destabilize financial markets. He said he was confident Congress ultimately would raise the limit. “We always have. We will do it again,” said Obama, who voted against raising the debt limit as a freshman senator from Illinois. The interview came a day after the Democratic president held the first major fundraising events of his re-election campaign, which was launched a week ago in a nation still reeling from high unemployment and struggling to recover from economic recession. “I’m the person who is best prepared for us to finish the job so that we’re on track to succeed in the 21st century,” Obama said. That’s the heart of his argument for voters to give him a second term over more than a half dozen Republicans seeking the White House. As the 2012 campaign gets under way, it’s being shaped by a deep disagreement over federal spending in Washington between Republicans who control the House and Democrats in power in the Senate and White House. Obama and Republicans compromised a week ago on a spending bill to avert a government shutdown, a preview of the debate that’s certain to dominate the coming months on deficits and the ceiling on money the nation can borrow. The president said that he doesn’t expect either side to get everything it wants in negotiations and that he’s pushing for “a smart compromise that’s seri-

the scene, state police said. He is survived by a wife and son. Board members were shocked by FarFarrell rell’s death. “This is absolutely devastating,” said Bo Kreller, a vice president along with Farrell. “He was a wonderful person.” “The school district is going to miss him very much,” added Mark Kornoski, board president.

He said he and Farrell ran together as board members eight years ago and Farrell was preparing to run for another term. Walter Glogowski said he knew Farrell for more than 25 years and was his union representative at the Wilkes-Barre Area School District, where Farrell worked in the buildings and grounds department. Glogowski described Farrell as someone helpful and suggested ways to improve things in the district. “He was an all-around, kind,

ous." He warned of dire consequences if the debt ceiling is not raised before it hits its limit of $14.3 trillion; the administration says the latest Congress could possibly act is by early July. But Obama said some longer-term questions about where the government trims its operations will have to be left until after the 2012 presidential election. Obama’s remarks about the relationship between lifting the debt ceiling and the need for spending cuts was the clearest acknowledgement yet by the president or the White House that the two issues are intertwined. Republicans, particularly tea party-backed lawmakers in the House, have repeatedly said they would not vote to increase the debt cap without a significant step toward longterm deficit reduction — a point reiterated by Boehner on Thursday. To win a second term, Obama must convince the recessionweary nation that he deserves more time to help the economy

recover from a recession that began under George W. Bush. "I think the economy is going to continue to improve, and I think I’m going to be able to make an effective case that given the extraordinary circumstances that I inherited when I came in — the worst recession since the Great Depression — that not only have I been able to yank this economy out of that hole and get it back on a track to growth but that we’ve been able to make changes in our economy," Obama said. He pointed to rewriting Wall Street regulations, overhauling the health care system, investing in clean energy and helping make college more affordable. The 2012 presidential race is the first in which the tea party coalition, which rails against the growth of government, excessive spending and Obama’s presidency, will play a major role. Obama said his views differ from the tea party in terms of the proper role of the government in society, but he also said "anytime the American people

decent guy. He will be sorely missed,” said Glogowski. Farrell also served as the district’s representative on the joint operating committee of the West Side Career and Technology Center. Wilkes-Barre Area Superintendent Jeff Namey had kind words for Farrell, saying he was “probably one of the nicest gentleman you could meet.” The news of Farrell’s death hit the district hard because his wife Lorraine works as a teacher for the district, said Namey.

On terrorism, Obama pledged during his first campaign that he would close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp for terror suspects, but it hasn’t happened. He said he still believes terror suspects should be tried in civilian federal courts and wants the U.S. "not to elevate folks who are murderers and thugs into something special.

Still, he conceded that he has been unable to overcome public fears about terrorism trials in the United States.

Blueprint proposes to cut $6.2 trillion and overhaul Medicare

House passes spending cut plan

Communist summit begins

WASHINGTON — The House on Friday passed a Republican budget blueprint proposing to fundamentally overhaul Medicare and combat out-of-control budget deficits with sharp spending cuts on social safety net programs like food stamps and Medicaid. The nonbinding plan lays out a fiscal vision cutting $6.2 trillion over the coming decade from the budget submitted by President Barack Obama. It passed 235-193 with every Democrat voting "no." The vote sets up the Republicans’ next round of confrontation with Obama and Democrats over the country’s

long-term deficit levels — a standoff likely to come to a head this summer and set the stage for 2012 elections. In an interview with The Associated Press earlier Friday, Obama the president said the Republican’s budget represents "a pessimistic vision." "It’s one that says that America can no longer do some of the big things that made us great, that made us the envy of the world," he said. Acknowledging that spending cuts would have to be made, Obama said he’s pushing for “a smart compromise that’s

serious.” Under the House Republican plan, deficits requiring the federal government to borrow more than 40 cents for every dollar it spends would be cut by the end of the decade to 8 cents of borrowing for every dollar spent. “This budget framework gets to the heart of what the American people want: big spending cuts, a downsizing of Washington and job creation,” said U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Twp. “I was proud to vote for this resolution and to take the first step on a journey that will lead to financial stability and private-sector job creation.” The plan by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., a rising

figure in the party, exposes Republicans to political risk. It proposes transforming Medicare from a program in which the government directly pays medical bills into a voucher-like system that subsidizes purchases of private insurance plans. People 55 and over would remain in the current system, but younger workers would receive subsidies that would steadily lose value over time. The budget measure is nonbinding but lays out a vision to fundamentally reshape government benefit programs for the poor and elderly whose spiraling costs threaten to crowd out other spending and produce a crippling debt burden that could put a big drag on the economy in the future.

Communist Party summit set to A start this weekend on the 50th

Part pep rally, part nostalgia tour, part leadership shake-up, the Sixth Party Congress is designed to consecrate the once-unthinkable free market economic changes enacted by President Raul Castro as the country’s only path to prosperity. Even the 79-year-old president acknowledges it will be the last such gathering under the island’s graying old guard — and they have a lot riding on its success.

MLK sanctuary reopens The voice of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. again filled the halls of Ebenezer Baptist Church and a pipe organ triumphantly announced the reopening of the sacred sanctuary regarded as the birthplace of the civil rights icon’s vision of justice, equality and a nonviolent society. The King family was joined by members of the civil rights movement and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in celebrating the reopening of Ebenezer, called the cornerstone of King’s legacy. Salazar said the church is "hallowed ground for a nation still very much in progress." "To be here this afternoon is to feel that history and remember out personal connection," Salazar told the crowd gathered in the building, which was closed to visitors in 2007. BEIRUT

Protesters march on capital Tens of thousands of protesters shouting “We want freedom!” made a bold march on the Syrian capital Friday, but security forces beat them back with tear gas and batons as the country’s monthlong uprising swelled to the largest and most widespread gatherings to date, witnesses and activists said. The violence outside of Damascus was the only major unrest reported during protests in several Syrian cities Friday, with security forces generally watching from the sidelines instead of cracking down. The change suggests President Bashar Assad may be trying to minimize deaths that have served to further outrage and mobilize the protesters. BELLE CHASSE, LA.

Gulf oil rescuers honored Nearly one year after an explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig killed 11 workers and led to the nation’s worst offshore oil spill, the Coast Guard honored a supply vessel’s crew who helped rescue 115 survivors. During a ceremony Friday at an air station in Belle Chasse, Coast Guard Vice Admiral Sally Brice-O’Hara presented awards to nine crew members of the Damon B. Bankston and about two dozen helicopter pilots, rescue swimmers and other Coast Guard personnel who responded the April 20 disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. The awards include the Coast Guard’s certificate of valor and distinguished public service award. "We pay tribute to their readiness, to their quick thinking, to their expert ship handling," Brice-O’Hara said of the supply vessel’s crew. "Today we honor you for your willingness to act. We recognize you for a job well done." Alwin Landry, who commanded the Bankston on the night of the explosion, thanked the Coast Guard crews that flew in and tended to injured workers.

At least nine people died as a result of storms in Oklahoma and Arkansas. Most of the damage was attributed to winds that struck with hurricane force during the night. Heavy rain and hail were reported elsewhere in the states as the spring storm system pushed east. There also were reports of damage to a few mobile homes and other structures.

Troops hit rebel city

Gadhafi forces launch attack By KARIN LAUB and BEN HUBBARD Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s troops launched a powerful assault with tanks and rockets Friday on Misrata, the last major rebel city in western Libya, sending residents fleeing to increasingly crowded safe areas of the city that are still out of the Libyan leader’s reach. Misrata has become emblematic of the limits of NATO’s air campaign, with the alliance’s top military commander saying he needs more precision attack aircraft to avoid civilian casualties in urban combat. President Barack Obama acknowledged in an interview that the two-month-old

civil war has reached a stalemate. After a weeklong flurry of high-level diplomatic meetings in Europe and the Middle East, rebel leaders complained that the international community is not doing enough to keep Gadhafi’s troops at bay. Friday’s attacks on Misrata — even as NATO foreign ministers meeting in Berlin debated handling of the Libya air campaign — highlight rebel worries that international intervention won’t come fast enough or will be ineffective. “Time is critical, especially for the peoAP PHOTO ple in the west part of the country, especially in Misrata,” said Mustafa Gheriani, A Libyan man prays Friday in front of a a spokesman for the rebels. coffin in Ajdabiya on Thursday.

TOKYO — The crisis at Japan’s tsunami-crippled nuclear plant forced Kazuko Suzuki to flee her home without packing, ended her job at a welfare office and cost her 18-year-old son an offer for work of his own.

The complex’s cooling systems were disabled by the March 11 tsunami, which was spawned by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake. Roughly 48,000 households living within about 20 miles (30 kilometers) of the crippled plant would be eligible for the initial payments — 1 million yen (about $12,000) for families and 750,000 yen (about $9,000) for single adults, the government said. The government said more was expected to be paid later.

Virginia Tech mulls appeal of fine as it marks grim anniversary By LARRY O’DELL and DENA POTTER Associated Press

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Four years after a troubled student gunned down 32 in a campus rampage, Virginia Tech officials remain adamant that they did nothing wrong by waiting two hours to warn the campus that a gunman was on the loose. Today, the school will mourn the victims of the April 16, 2007 mass shooting — the worst in modern U.S. history — with a 3.2-mile Run for Remembrance and a candlelight vigil. Mean-

while, school officials are strongly leaning toward appealing a $55,000 fine for violating federal law with its response the day of the shootings. They have until April 29 to decide. “Truth, accountability, apology, forgiveness — you have to get through the first three to get to the fourth,’’ said Joseph Samaha, whose daughter Reema was killed. “Somebody needs to say, ‘I made a mistake.’ ’’ Virginia Tech says it acted reasonably based on standards in place at the time and doesn’t

deserve the fine that the U.S. Department of Education has imposed. President Charles Steger argues that federal bureaucrats with the benefit of hindsight are holding the university to stricter standards. “We were there, and given the information we had and the circumstances we faced, I believe we acted appropriately,’’Steger said. Steger said the school’s likely appeal is an attempt to make the government explain its rationale — not to escape accountability.

GNA considers pay freezes for teachers, other cuts NANTICOKE – Greater Nanticoke Area School Board is bracing for possible budget cuts in the district, school officials said at the board meeting Thursday night. The board is waiting to see if Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget passes. School Board President Robert Raineri said he may be asking the teachers and support personnel unions to take a pay freeze on their normal 2-percent-to-3-percent annual increase in salary. Superintendent Anthony Perrone said the district will be just fine one way or the other. Perrone also maintains officials can make up the difference if the cuts are in the $1 million to $1.5 million range. Assistant Principal John Gorham credited three students for bringing one of the best antibullying programs in the country to the school. Gorham said students Thomsina Watson, Brook Chapin and Hanna Rubaski “were instrumental in researching programs and ultimately finding the best program out there‌ and they did.â€? The students brought a program called Teen Truth Live, an award winning anti-bullying program that also deals with drug abuse and self-esteem. The program is a California based program, featuring award winning producer and director Erahm Christopher of Canada. The program has already reached more than 3 million students.

Barletta raised less money than stated By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta’s campaign fundraising total for the first three months of the year was about $105,000, the report filed Friday by the Hazleton Republican’s campaign shows. That is less than the figure of about $131,000 provided Thursday by Barletta’s campaign, ahead of the report filed with the Federal Election Committee. The deadline for submitting first quarter reports to the FEC was midnight Friday. A campaign spokesman said the discrepancy mainly was the result of mistakenly including in that initial estimate

money that was raised after the March 31 reporting cut-off. The freshman Republican had more than $90,000 on hand at the end of the quarter, about what was estimated. Of the money Barletta raised, more than $81,000 came from political action committees of companies and trade associations or fellow Republicans. Barletta’s campaign reelection committee also carries nearly $135,000 worth of debt heading into the next election cycle, his report shows. Barletta, who defeated longtime incumbent Paul Kanjorski last year, does not yet have an announced opponent for 2012.

Sentencing delayed for man charged with assaulting officers By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

However, Democrat William Vinsko Jr., a lawyer with his own practice who also is assistant city attorney for Wilkes-Barre, said Thursday he was considering running against Barletta in 2012. The other area freshman Republican House member, Rep. Tom Marino of Lycoming Township, filed his official report on Thursday. Marino, who defeated Democrat Chris Carney last year and does not yet have an announced opponent for 2012, reported raising $59,900 during the first three months of the year. Marino’s campaign had about $37,500 on hand as of March 31, according to his report.

WILKES-BARRE – The sentencing Thursday of a city man who faces a maximum of 17 years in prison on charges he assaulted and disarmed police officers was delayed to allow him to obtain a new attorney. Anthony Mathis, 26, of Harkins Lane, was scheduled to be sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley on one count each of aggravated assault and disarming a law enforcement officer. He is currently represented by attorney Mark Clinton. Twelve other related charges were withdrawn against Mathis when he pleaded guilty to the two charges in February. He was scheduled to stand trial then, but

entered the plea instead. He is now tentatively scheduled to be sentenced on May 23. Mathis is charged with assaulting city officers Tom Harding and Robert Collins during a domestic disturbance on Nov. 28, 2009, at a residence on Josephs Lane. During a fight with the two officers, Mathis allegedly removed the magazine clip from Collins’ gun and tried to remove Harding’s baton. Collins suffered a serious facial injury that required surgery, police said. Harding testified at a 2009 preliminary hearing that he and Collins investigated a domestic disturbance about a cell phone involving Mathis and a woman at the Josephs Lane residence. Harding said Mathis was permit-

ted to retrieve personal items so he could go stay elsewhere and attempted to remove furniture and an infant from the home. When Mathis tried to enter the residence a fifth time, Harding said, Collins stopped Mathis at the front door. That’s when Mathis lunged at Collins with his forearm and started fighting with the officers, Harding said. Harding said he tackled Mathis onto a couch, placed him in a headlock and felt Mathis reaching for his baton. After Mathis was handcuffed, Harding said, a magazine clip from Collins’ service weapon was found on the living room floor. Harding testified there is only one way that a magazine clip can be removed: when the gun is taken out of its holster.

PROGRAM Continued from Page 1A

Funding needed Luzerne County Children and Youth Services already has 20 more children lined up for the program, director Frank Castano said, but securing long-term funding for the program is crucial. The board will seek funding from a combination of state and federal grants, corporate endorsements, foundation grants, and donations from social clubs and individuals, Tevet said.

PETE G. WILCOX/THE TIMES LEADER

Meals assembled at Ollie’s restaurant in Edwardsville by volunteers are then distributed to needy area children.

Tevet had the idea for the program after seeing a public service announcement by the Commission on Economic Opportunity on television. He learned President Barack Obama started an initiative to end childhood hunger by 2015, and consulted the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recommendations on ways to fight the problem. But he said he found the recommendations too broad, systematic and political. “I said to myself, there is a solution,” Tevet said. “If I give the kid a complete meal, a nutritious meal, it will solve the problem.” He also found that while schools

offer free lunches to children from low-income families, fewer programs offer meals on the 200 days a year schools aren’t in session, and almost none provided meals for children to their homes with parents. Joe DeVizia, director of the county’s Office of Human Services and chair of the program’s board, said the program provides a service area children need. “The important thing is, kids were identified who are hungry; they just weren’t getting supper and it was noticeable,” DeVizia said. According to the Luzerne Coun-

ty Commission on Economic Opportunity, more than 10,500 children in Luzerne County are food insecure. The program is already making a difference. Tevet said he expected the program would help improve the health of the children it serves as well as their performance in school, but he said it has had benefits beyond his expectations.

If they’re not going to eat it, we didn’t achieve anything.” Tevet has assembled a 17-member board of area community and religious leaders to guide the program and secure funding to keep it running. Once that happens, he hopes to expand, possibly getting other businesses, organizations and government bodies involved and adding an educational component. “If people just see the value in it, it can be duplicated; it can be done everywhere,” Tevet said. “I don’t want to keep the program; I want to make it public domain.”

LEGISLATIVE BRIEF HARRISBURG – Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, voted in favor of legislation that would provide law-abiding citizens protection against civil liability for the lawful use of force in self defense. House Bill 40, known as the Castle Doctrine, would create the presumption that an attacker or intruder who is in the process of unlawfully and forcefully entering a dwelling, residence or occupied vehicle intends to do great bodily harm to the occupants, who would have a reasonable belief that the use of deadly force is necessary for protection. The legislation also removes the duty to retreat for any law-abiding citizen who is attacked in any place where that individual has the right to be. The legislation provides several exceptions to the use of deadly force if the person

entering the dwelling, residence or occupied vehicle is: another resident of (or person who has the right to be in) the dwelling, residence or occupied vehicle; a parent, grandparent or other guardian removing a child from the dwelling, residence or occupied vehicle; a peace officer acting in the performance of his official duties and the actor using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a peace officer. House Bill 40 passed the House and will now go to the Senate for debate and consideration.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I don’t think people really understand how serious … this budget deficit is. Unfortunately, this could turn out to be catastrophic.” Jeff Namey The Wilkes-Barre Area School District Superintendent warned that state cuts helped create a nearly $8 million hole in next year’s budget.

OTHER OPINION: CASTLE DOCTRINE

Gunslinger law armed, dangerous

O

NCE MORE, the allure of the Wild West is exerting an irresistible pull on Harrisburg. In a dangerous policy decision, the state Senate and House have revived legislation wisely vetoed by former Gov. Edward G. Rendell that would expand gun owners’ rights to blast away any time they feel threatened. By extending the “castle doctrine,” which gives armed homeowners the right to shoot an intruder, lawmakers are risking deadly confrontations in any public setting. More road-rage incidents could prove lethal, with armed motorists claiming they were legally defending themselves against a perceived threat. Criminals caught up in drugrelated gun battles could mount a defense under the castle doctrine, state prosecutors have said.

At the same time, there’s no evidence of a compelling reason to let armed citizens draw their weapons in public. As Rendell said, the measure embraces a “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality. It poses particular risks in heavily populated city and suburban communities. In a state that had refused to surrender policymaking to the National Rifle Association, majority Republican leaders in the Senate should pay a political price in their suburban-Philadelphia districts. The House vote Tuesday was just as lopsided in its support by suburban lawmakers. Gov. Corbett may be an NRA devotee, but he owes it to all Pennsylvanians to veto this measure that will threaten public safety as much as this expansion of the castle doctrine does.

CityVest details efforts on Hotel Sterling project

C

ityVest, whose mission is to serve as a developer of last resort, took on the Hotel Sterling project at a difficult point. The buildings and the property were in deplorable and non-livable condition – and no developers were willing to address its complex array of problems. As a not-for-profit organization comprised of people who live and work in – and care deeply about – our community, CityVest stepped into the breach. From the outset, our goal has been to cure the most immediate, daunting and grave problems that have paralyzed this property – in the hopes of finding a private developer with private financing. Here is what we accomplished and the steps we have taken to give this site – including preserving the corner hotel building – every opportunity: • CityVest acquired the property through judicial action from an out-oftown, bankrupt owner that had abused the judicial process in numerous attempts to thwart the sale of the property over several years. The bankrupt owner owed more than $2 million in back taxes and liens on the property. CityVest paid $1 million to acquire the properties – and all of this money went to the Wilkes-Barre Area School District, the City of Wilkes-Barre and Luzerne County, thereby reimbursing the taxpayers for half of the prior owner’s debts. • CityVest recruited a team of experts to advise CityVest on all aspects of the project – namely, a national real estate development firm to serve as project manager; an architectural firm, selected after an open design competition, that had directly applicable urban mixed-use talent; an environmental abatement and demolition firm experienced in the most challenging projects; structural engineers, historians, roof contractors, consultants and others. • CityVest removed more than 1,000 tons of environmental contamination and debris from the buildings. • CityVest razed the tower and connector building, and power plant – all unqualified candidates for reuse and choking redevelopment potential. This work was done with great care so as not to imperil the hotel building. • CityVest removed the cheap and rotting interior walls and drop ceilings in the

corner hotel building to make it a re-usable shell. • CityVest invested in extensive roof repairs, patching, inspection and stabilization of the corner building, which was complicated because of the roof’s aged, wooden frame. • CityVest re-acquired the parking lot behind the hotel that the prior bankrupt owner had sold to Mr. Ali Kazimi and an associate. Also, CityVest acquired an adjacent property that had sat dormant and that restricted CityVest’s access to Market Street and to the parking lot in the rear, which was deemed far preferable than access to River Street in light of the Riverfront Park and proposed traffic restrictions for River Street. In addition, this created a more viable and valuable section of land for development. • CityVest prepared a history of the property. As the project progressed, an exhaustive multi-year search for developers proved unsuccessful. Each potential developer identified multiple, costly and dispiriting obstacles that precluded their involvement. Meanwhile, CityVest strove to invest its limited remaining resources in stabilization efforts to buy more time in the hope that a developer could be found. The terrible economy, particularly in real estate, made the problem far worse. With still not even a glimmer of serious interest and financing from a private developer after eight years, CityVest commissioned a study to place every option on the table and to explore each option’s strengths, weaknesses, costs and potential. CityVest has made no decision on which path to recommend. Instead, in recognition of the substantial investment the county has made and the broad community interest, we ask the county to review this study, select the preferred future direction, acquire title and serve as project manager. Given the nature of the corner building’s

condition, which is detailed in the accompanying report, CityVest respectfully requests that the county act expeditiously with its next steps because time is of the essence. To be sure, the funding invested to date – to re-unite the parcels of land, to clean the site, and to remove buildings – will prove valuable for whatever direction is selected. CityVest remains optimistic that – with a signature tenant and creative private and public financing – this site can, and must, once again be a vibrant corner of our city. The leadership in our community must work together to identify potential tenants and financing, including considering combining multiple existing and contemplated commercial and residential projects.

Entire welfare system needs to be scrutinized

W

hen current politicians call for fiscal change and draconian reductions in benefits, they want to begin with the entitlement programs, i.e., Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, while ignoring the elephant in the social room, America’s welfare system. I’ve been working since I was 10, selling TV Guides for a profit of three cents a copy because my father taught me about a work ethic. Since then, 6.5 percent was deducted from my paychecks to fund Social Security. The politicians should focus on the entire welfare program if they’re looking for waste and abuse. Benjamin Franklin once stated, “In my travels, I observed that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves; the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves.” You and I call that pride and self-sufficiency. It’s time to closely scrutinize the welfare state to ensure those who really need the benefits receive them. We can only hope the work ethic that made this country what it once was can still be recaptured. Mike Martin Hanover Township

Revving up girls’ interest in science Earth Day celebration features race of small wooden cars fueled by solar power. By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE – Laughter, cheering and jeering from a crowd of elementary-age girls drew many eyes to a race of small wooden cars fueled by solar power. , On Friday morning, 75 students from several area elementary schools – including Fairview Elementary, Wyoming Seminary and Wyoming Valley West –

tunity to explore a field of study they might have not considered otherwise. “The program also boosts their self-esteem,” she said. With subjects alternating monthly, Troy said currently, the girls are learning about environmental education. Their goal was to build a solar car from a kit within a few hours. Then the girls had to race the car on a flat surface and up a hill. When the car malfunctioned, they had a “pit” area prepared with tools for trouble shooting. The simple but eye-catching cars motored along on a paved section of the walkway. As col-

leagues cheered on, Anna Fox, 11, of Fairview Elementary in Mountain Top, had her car in the “pits” for trouble shooting. While seeking advice from Troy, Anna said she has enjoyed building a car from scratch. Although the sky was overcast, she was still having fun. Learning through fun is the goal. Fairview Elementary sixth grade teacher Patty Ritsick said her school has participated in the program for four years and her students look forward to it. “Everybody wants to be a WEBS girl,” Ritsick said. “They always leave with a newly developed interest.”

EARTH DAY cons, bugs, composting, recycling, and waste water treatment, students and their teachers leisurely strolled to each booth to discover a new experience. Lisa O’Brien, a fourth-grade teacher from Dana Street Elementary School in Forty Fort, said her class was just one of three from that school. She sees the event as a great way for students to learn about the environ-

ment. Dana Street Elementary School fourth grade student Sidney Scarcella, 10, of Luzerne, said out of all the booths she had visited, she enjoyed learning about the bats the most. Although live bats were not part of the display, she said, she found it interesting how bats used their sensitive hearing to locate insects to eat. Penn State master gardeners offered students a chance to discover what lives in a log. Carol Renna and Barbara Soyka, representatives from that organization, told a group from the East

Stroudsburg Area School District about 167 insects and animals can live in an Oak tree and 128 can live in Pine. Rebecca Lesko, executive director of the Endless Mountain Nature Center in Tunkhannock, brought a female American kestrel, a small, locally found falcon, to help explain how wildlife is affected by pesticides. Lesko explained that the bird lives in open areas such as fields and their diet of worms, mice, grasshoppers, and other small birds is being contaminated by use of pesticides. “We can do things to help the

Two other options are suggested in the study – demolition with construction of a new building or partial demolition of the existing structure. Partial demolition would preserve the two-story base of the hotel. The five upper floors would be demolished, and two new upper floors would be added. The building would house 27 condos and 10,000 square feet of retail space. This option would cost an estimated $15.1million to $19 million and bring in $8.3 million from condo sales and retail rent, requiring a net government subsidy of $6.7 million to $10.7 million. Demolishing the entire structure and building a new 13,000square-foot, four-story structure would cost an estimated $10.5 million to $13.3 million. The proposed new building would house 27 condos and 10,000-square-feet of commercial space generating an estimated $13.6 million in revenue. The net government subsidy: $3.5 million to $7.2 million. The study is packed with deficiencies in the building. Roofing experts estimated it would cost more than $1.4 million to complete permanent repairs to the roof framing and install a new rubber roof and roof drainage. Despite roof shoring in 2007, some portions of the roof are collapsing, and water is getting into the building in “significant volumes,” the study said. The floor is sagging in numer-

ous areas, and there’s evidence of mold and other potential toxins, including a “pretty, green ‘carpet’ of moss on some floors, ceilings and walls.” “If there is mold growing in the cells of the floor system (or even if public perception is that it is there), the building might not be insurable at an economic level,” the study says. The building’s structural steel system appears sufficient, but beams that have been regularly exposed to moisture may need to be repaired and replaced. The windows would also have to be replaced. Water is getting into the building in “significant volumes,” according to Keast & Hood Co. The brick masonry at the rear of the structure needs “considerable repair, re-pointing and cleaning.” The study says a major snow load, high wind storm or movement of the make-shift support bracing could result in a catastrophic failure of the building or integrity of the exterior façade. “The observations of local contractors and engineers further confirm these conditions to the point where concern has been expressed about the safety of anyone entering the upper portion of the building or performing any work in that area,” the study says. CityVest has provided detailed funding and site information to potential private developers, met with them and in one instance

signed a letter of intent, the study says. “Every potential developer – including the firm that had signed the letter of intent – ultimately withdrew themselves from consideration,” the report said. All the developers who walked away from the project identified the cost of repairs as the reason, particularly when they couldn’t guarantee they could sell or rent the residential and/or commercial space at price points that would cover their expenses, the study said. Among the building deficiencies identified by developers: • Low ceiling height. • Compromised views from small windows. • An inefficient layout for use as residential or hotel units. • Unusable space created by the large lobby and atrium. • Inconsistent floor elevations on the second floor. • Narrow elevators that don’t comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. • Concern that replacement of the floors could risk structural instability of the building because of the way the floors are anchored to the building’s perimeter walls. The building has “physically and functionally” lost its status as a center of downtown WilkesBarre over the last 40 years. “Vacant, stripped of every item that contributed to a memorable experience, the remaining shell is cold, damp and lifeless,” said the

study, which was prepared by Susquehanna Real Estate LP. “The current condition is not only poor, but also dangerous.” CityVest officials defended their handling of the project in a letter to citizens, saying the gov-

ernment funding was used to pay inherited back taxes, demolish an adjoining structure, acquire land to make the parcel larger and remove “cheap and rotting” interior walls in drop ceilings in the 113year-old hotel.

sinking $25 million into a property,” said Kimmerly. “They are few and far between.” The building has a better chance of survival as a home for offices and retail space instead of as a hotel, Kimmerly added. “It’s got a lot of potential.” But the practical route might be demolishing the building and that route might already have been mapped out, Kimmerly acknowledged. “I do understand that there are some problems that could be potentially structural that may require the building to come down, but we would like to have all of that investigated,” he said.

If it comes down to demolition, Preservation Pennsylvania has standing as an interested party because of the fact that federal money will be spent on the project. CityVest, which also is a nonprofit organization, informed the county it will be asking for federal funds through the county community development office for the demolition. “There’s actually regulations in effect and part of those regulations require the federal agency and the city acting on behalf of the federal agency to seek what are called consulting parties,” explained Kimmerly. Preservation Pennsylvania is such a

party because it put the hotel on its list of endangered buildings and that allows the organization a say “in what mitigation is for that demolition.” The organization can ask that the building be preserved in photographs or measured line drawings done by an architect, said Kimmerly. “That get’s recorded in the Historic American Building Survey and that gets put in the archives I believe of the Library of Congress.” The city and the local historical society could get copies as well. The city also could be asked to undertake a survey “of all of

its other historic hotels and what their potential are, what their conditions are what their historical value is so it doesn’t come to this again,” said Kimmerly. If a new building goes up on the site the organization can ask that its design fits in with the River Street Historic District, added Kimmerly. The hope is that it will be restored and rehabilitated, he said. The federal government offers a 20-percent tax credit to developers who undertake preservation projects. “There is some incentive out there for doing this kind of work,” said Kimmerly.

county has made and the broad community interest, we ask the county to review this study, select the preferred future direction, acquire title and serve as project manager,” the study says. County commissioners will review the study and meet to publicly discuss options, Commissioner Stephen A. Urban said Friday. The possibility of demolition of the River Street landmark has generated lots of debate since it became public last month, after a decade of promises that the building would be restored. Picketers have urged officials to save the once luxurious hotel, while others have demanded an end to government subsidy of the project. CityVest, known as a last-resort developer, assumed ownership of the building from a back-tax sale in 2002. Renovating and converting the downtown Wilkes-Barre property into 32 condos, offices and retail space would generate an estimated $15.3 million in revenue, leaving a net government investment in the project of $11.5 million to $20.2 million, said the study released Friday by the building’s nonprofit owner and developer, CityVest. Demolition and site preparation would cost $900,000 to $1.2 million, the study says.

His interest intensified after owner and developer CityVest released an analysis the same day estimating it would cost between $26.8 and $35.6 million to fully preserve and restore the vacant landmark at the western gateway to the city.

Pens sink in opener

By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

MOOSIC – A player inserted into the lineup due to an unexpected circumstance came through with late-game heroics for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Friday night. That clutch role was played by Yankees right fielder Dan Brewer at PNC Field. Brewer, who replaced Greg Golson in the fourth inning after Golson was ejected by home plate umpire John Conrad for arguing a called strike one, laced a two-run triple YANKEES in the bottom of the eighth and later scored on a wild pitch to BISONS help the Yankees pull out a come-from-behind 5-3 victory over the Buffalo Bisons. “I was just getting ready for that last at-bat and looking for a good pitch to hit,” said Brewer, who was 1-for-3. “I got it and it fell for us. Then on the wild pitch, I saw it in the dirt and it hit the backstop and I scored.” The Yankees entered the eighth trailing 3-2 with the Bisons scoring one run in the fifth and two in the sixth off Yankees starter Adam Warren, who was a fourth-round draft pick of the organization in 2009. Warren dazzled for the first four innings, not allowing a hit until two outs in the third and giving up only two until things fell apart in the sixth. After allowing a run in the fifth due to a leadoff triple by Justin Turner, Warren gave up two more runs on three hits in the sixth. The big blow was a two-run double to the gap in right-center

Admirals hold off WBS, which goes 0-for-6 on power play By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – During the regular season, the Norfolk Admirals had the lead after the second period in 40 games. They only lost one. When the Admirals closed out the second period against the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins on Friday, they had a two-goal lead. It was the last thing the Penguins wanted. With goals from Mattias Ritola and

Marc-Antoine Pouliot, the Admirals defeated the Penguins 2-1 to take Game 1 of the Calder Cup playoff series. The Admirals were backed by a 32-save effort from Dustin Tokarski and they held the Penguins scoreless on six power-play opportunities. “Certain situations of the game we can be better and we will be better,” said Penguins captain Ryan Craig. “Tonight was a loss, but it’s one game in a seven-game series.” Both teams played a balanced first period and each went 0-for-2 on the power

play. While the Admirals didn’t create much pressure Norfolk Admirals at against goaltender WBS Penguins Brad Thiessen, the 7 p.m., today, Penguins tested ToMohegan Sun karski several times Arena in the period. And each time Tokarski held his ground, taking away an open net on a Chris Conner shot, making a blocker save on Brett Sterling in front and stuffing David Marshall on a breakaway.

The Admirals scored the crucial first goal of the game when Norfolk defenseman Troy Milam knocked Robert Bortuzzo off the puck in the neutral zone. Ritola collected the lose puck, raced into the Penguins zone and ripped a wrist shot from the top of the faceoff circle past Thiessen for a 1-0 lead. Being down1-0 wasn’t the start the Penguins envisioned. “When you’re at home, in the first playoff game, you want the building to get into See PENGUINS, Page 8B

Yes, Penn State fans will once again have most of their attention glued to the quarterbacks during today’s Blue-White Game. There’s even a chance that it will be the last time that two of them – Rob Bolden and Kevin Newsome – suit up for the Nittany Lions.

PITTSBURGH — Three broken teeth and a fat lip didn’t prevent Martin St. Louis from helping the Tampa Bay Lightning bite back to even their first-round playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. St. Louis had a goal and assist, Eric Brewer scored and added two assists and the Lightning rebounded to beat the Penguins 5-1 on Friday night.

HORSE RACING

Wide-open Blue Grass Stakes awaits The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Blue Grass Stakes remains one of the last major preps for next month’s Kentucky Derby, but even those involved in today’s $750,000 race at Keeneland allow it has lost some luster. No horse has won the Blue Grass and the Derby since Strike the Gold in 1991, and the track’s move to a synthetic surface in the fall of 2006 has turned the race into a crapshoot.

The four winners since the surface change have all been relative long shots, including Stately Victor’s win after going off at 40-1 last spring. Santiva comes in as the 3-1 morning line favorite in the 12horse field. Trainer Eddie Kenneally says his colt is “sitting on gold” and acknowledged Santiva is entered in the race due in part to the absence of other major Derby contenders.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Rangers turn 2 to win 1 vs. Yanks The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Undefeated Matt Harrison and Texas tied an AL record by turning six double plays and the Rangers picked up where they left off last October, beating the New York Yankees 5-3 Friday night. The teams played for the first time since Texas battered the Yankees to win last year’s AL championship series in six games. The Rangers won this time with pitching, thanks to Harrison (3-0) and his surehanded fielders on a chilly, windy evening. Texas turned double plays on grounders by the first six hitters in the New York lineup — Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter, Andruw Jones and Nick Swisher. This was the 15th time an AL team made six DPs in a game. The major league mark for double plays in a game is seven by San Francisco in 1969. Blue Jays 7, Red Sox 6

BOSTON — Jose Bautista singled in the go-ahead run in a four-run seventh inning and the Toronto Blue Jays deepened the misery of the struggling Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox dropped to 2-10, matching their poorest start in history and making the worst record in baseball even worse. They did hit two homers after managing just seven in their first 11 games but finished with only five hits. Brett Cecil (1-1) gave up those homers to Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis in the third when Boston went ahead 3-0. Rays 5, Twins 2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Wade Davis pitched seven strong innings and Johnny Damon and Kelly Shoppach

drove in two runs apiece, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a victory over the Minnesota Twins. Davis (1-2) limited the defending AL Central champions to three singles and Danny Valencia’s fifth-inning RBI double to help the Rays to their fourth straight win and fifth in seven games following an 0-6 start. Minnesota has dropped three in a row and five of its last six. A night after beating the Twins with a 10th inning homer, the 37-year-old Damon delivered a two-run single off Nick Blackburn (1-2) to erase a 1-0 deficit in the sixth. Shoppach finished off the Minnesota starter with a two-run, seventh-inning homer for his first RBIs of the season. Indians 8, Orioles 2

CLEVELAND — Justin Masterson pitched seven strong innings for his third win, Asdrubal Cabrera had four RBIs and the surprising Cleveland Indians kept the AL Central standings flipped upside down with a win over the Baltimore Orioles. Masterson (3-0) allowed just one run and four singles. He went 6-13 last season, and didn’t get his third win until July 1 — in his 16th start. Royals 6, Mariners 5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Luke Hochevar gave up one hit in seven innings and Jeff Francoeur homered and drove in three runs to help the Kansas City Royals beat the Seattle Mariners on a rainy night for their fifth victory in six games. Ichiro Suzuki led off the game with a double, the only hit Hochevar (2-1) would allow. Suzuki advanced to third on a Milton Bradley ground out and scored on Jack Cust’s fielder’s choice grounder.

Oswalt injured as Marlins spear Phillies The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Pinchhitter Greg Dobbs hit a goahead two-run single against his former team and the Florida Marlins rallied to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Friday night. It may have been a costly loss for the NL East-leading Phillies because Roy Oswalt left with a lower back strain. Oswalt pitched six impressive innings before getting hurt. He allowed two runs and four hits, striking out six. He didn’t allow a hit until Logan Morrison led off the fifth with a home run into Philadelphia’s bullpen. There was no immediate word on the extent of Oswalt’s injury. Pirates 6, Reds 1

CINCINNATI — Charlie Morton pitched his second career complete game in gusty winds, limiting the NL’s most prolific lineup to five hits, and the Pittsburgh Pirates ended their four-game losing streak by beating the Cincinnati Reds. Gusts sent food wrappers racing across the field and played havoc with flyballs — one of Cincinnati’s wind-blown flies landed for a hit. Morton (2-0) lost his shutout when Jay Bruce homered with two outs in the ninth. Nationals 4, Brewers 3, 10 innings

WASHINGTON — Adam LaRoche’s 10th inning fielder’s choice scored Jayson Werth with the winning run, and the Washington Nationals beat the Milwaukee Brewers. With one out, Werth ground-

ed to shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt, who threw wildly to first. Werth took second on the error. Werth stole third without a throw. Padres 4, Astros 2

HOUSTON — Chris Denorfia doubled and homered and Ryan Ludwick drove in a pair of runs in San Diego’s three-run seventh inning as the Padres beat the Houston Astros. San Diego starter Aaron Harang (3-0) allowed three hits and one run with eight strikeouts in six innings for the win. Closer Heath Bell gave up two hits and a run in the ninth for his third save. Rockies 5, Cubs 0

DENVER — Jhoulys Chacin tossed a six-hitter for his first career complete game, Chris Iannetta hit a bases-clearing triple and the Colorado Rockies won their seventh straight, beating the Chicago Cubs. The Rockies are off to their best start in franchise history, improving to 11-2 behind the performance of Chacin, who’s picking up the slack quite nicely with ace Ubaldo Jimenez sidelined due to a cracked cuticle on his right thumb. Mets-Braves postponed

ATLANTA — The New York Mets and Atlanta Braves game Friday night has been postponed by rain. The teams will play a traditional doubleheader today, with the first game beginning at 4:10 p.m. The second game will start approximately 30 minutes after the end of the first game.

Dykstra arrested in grand-theft probe

Source: Lance, banned M.D. met

The arrest comes a day after the ex-big league outfielder was charged with a federal bankruptcy crime. The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra was arrested in a grand theft investigation, a day after he was charged with a federal bankruptcy crime, authorities said Friday. Dykstra, 48, was arrested Thursday night by Los Angeles police at his Encino home on suspicion of trying to buy a stolen car, police spokesman Officer Christopher No said. He did not have other de-

tails. Dykstra remained jailed Friday. His arrest came a day after Dykstra, in an unrelated federal complaint, was charged with embezzling from a bankruptcy estate. He faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted. Dykstra, who bought a Ventura County mansion once owned by hockey star Wayne Gretzky, filed for bankruptcy in 2009, claiming that he owed more than $31million and had only $50,000 in assets. Federal prosecutors contend that after filing, Dykstra hid, sold or destroyed more than $400,000 worth of items from the $18.5 million mansion without permission of a bankruptcy trustee. The items allegedly ranged from sports

memorabilia to a $50,000 sink. At one point, he sold "a truckload of furnishing and fixtures" for cash at a consignment store, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office. It was not immediately clear whether Dykstra had obtained an attorney, U.S. attorney’s office spokesman Thom Mrozek said. Dykstra spent12 years in the big leagues and helped the Mets to the World Series championship in 1986. He was a threetime All-Star in the 1990s while with the Phillies. He had the nickname "Nails" and was known for his rowdy behavior on and off the field. In 2007, the Mitchell Report on steroid use in pro baseball mentioned allegations

that Dykstra had used steroids. Dykstra has denied using performance-enhancing drugs.

will have two days to regroup for Game 3 at Tampa Bay on Monday night. For St. Louis, the performance was payback after the diminutive forward was livid that no penalty was called after he was cracked across the face by Zbynek Michalek’s errant stick in the second period of Game 1. After a late-night trip to the dentist and two root canals, St. Louis was still unhappy but ready to move on when returning to practice Thursday. The Lightning followed their top scorer’s lead with an efficient opening period in which they scored on two of their first three shots, looking much like the team that finished second in the Eastern Conference with 247 goals. The first period was a complete reversal of how Game 1 ended, with the Penguins scoring three times in the final 20 minutes. Another difference was how the crowd booed the Penguins off the ice two nights after goalie Marc-Andre Fleury exited to fans chanting his name and “MVP! MVP!” After making several acrobatic saves in stopping all 32 shots he faced Wednesday, Fleury struggled in allowing three goals on eight shots and finished with 16 saves. Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson made 35 saves, including 14 in the final period. Roloson’s best save came in the opening minute when he got his right shoulder to stop Tyler Kennedy’s shot from the right circle on a 2-on-1 break. Lightning coach Guy Boucher couldn’t have drawn up a better first period. He got the fast start he wanted, and even had a few penalty calls go his way after questioning how the Penguins had a 6-1 advantage in power-play opportunities in Game 1. Each team was penalized three times in the first period, with the Penguins finishing with a 7-6 edge in power-play chances. The Lightning capitalized on their chances, converting two of them. Brewer opened the scoring on the Lightning’s first shot on goal 2:02 with both teams having a player in the penalty box. Driving up the right side on a 2-on-1, the defenseman snapped a high shot beating Fleury on the short side. Lecavalier scored on the power play just under 5 minutes later. Brewer kept the play in the Pens zone by batting the puck out of the air at the left point. The Lightning eventually worked it down to Simon Gagne in the left corner, where he fed a pass in front to Lecavalier, who had a step on defender Kris Letang, and stuffed it in.

Caps hit stride, blank Rangers The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — For one period, the Washington Capitals looked as if they’d perhaps gone a bit too far with their new defensive scheme. They were on their heels, expending lots of energy with raucous hits with few scoring chances to speak of, relying on their young goalie to stop everything that came his way. They came out for the second period a different team, dominating the New York Rangers from one end of the rink to the

other. Jason Chimera and Jason Arnott scored in a 1:57 span, Michal Neuvirth got the shutout in his second career NHL playoff game and the Capitals won 2-0 on Friday night to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round Eastern Conference series. The 23-year-old Neuvirth, who had four shutouts in the regular season, has stopped 46 of 47 shots so far in the series. Henrik Lundqvist made 16 saves for the Rangers. Game 3 is Sunday in New York. Game 2 was more physical

and feisty than the Capitals’ 2-1 overtime victory in Game 1, in part due to agitator Sean Avery’s return to New York’s lineup after he was a healthy scratch Wednesday night. The stat sheet tallied 29 combined hits in the first period alone. Overall, though, it seemed as if the teams had swapped jerseys. The Rangers came out the more aggressive team, creating chance after chance on Neuvirth, while the Capitals were more tight and defensive, content to poke away the puck at

the last minute and wait for a possible counterattack. The Capitals needed more than 6 minutes to get their first shot on goal, had none on their first power play and were outshot 13-7 in the first period. Their best chance came on a penalty kill when Mike Knuble missed an open net after a pass from Brooks Laich, The second period was a different story. The Rangers didn’t get a shot on goal for more than 10 minutes. By then, it was 2-0 in favor of the Capitals.

With hot goalie, Sabres no pushover against Flyers By DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer

VOORHEES, N.J. — The Philadelphia Flyers loved the way they played Game 1. They hit hard and hit often, created scoring chances, and dominated the power-play attempts. In fact, the Flyers believe if they can duplicate that effort over the rest of the series, they should defeat the Buffalo Sabres. But there’s one problem with that theory. Goaltender Ryan Miller and the Sabres have put Philadelphia on notice they won’t be bullied around by the Atlantic Division cham-

pions. Miller stopped 35 shots and was sensational in Buffalo’s 1-0 victory on Thursday. The Sabres scored a clutch rebound, held the Flyers scoreless on the power play — Philadelphia even wasted a 5-on-3 shot — and showed a hostile opposing crowd can’t affect the hottest team in the Eastern Conference. Game2istodayinPhiladelphia.TheSabres expect to return to New York with a dominating series lead. “We know we can be better,” Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said Friday. “We played a strong game, but I think we can play a better game. Offensively, we didn’t spend the time in the of-

fensive zone we wanted. I think we’ve really got to get after this one.” While Miller carried the Sabres, they caught a break that Patrick Kaleta’s third period goal was all they’d need to beat one of the top offensive teams in the NHL. Miller, the MVP of last year’s Olympics, never had to make the acrobatic, “can you believe that!” typeofsavethatgoaliesoftenhavetostopduring a Stanley Cup run. But it was just the opener.

Men have met repeatedly in Europe since severing formal ties in ’04, a source tells AP. By ANDREW DAMPF AP Sports Writer

ROME — Lance Armstrong and a banned Italian physician have met repeatedly in Europe since severing formal ties in 2004, including as recently as last year before Armstrong’s final Tour de France, a high-ranking Italian law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Friday. Michele Ferrari was cleared in 2006 of criminal charges accusing him of distributing doping products to athletes, but he remains barred for life by the Italian Cycling Federation. Italian authorities suspect Ferrari of continuing to work with 20 to 30 top level cyclists despite his ban, including Armstrong, and are actively pursuing that line of investigation, the law enforcement official said. Padua prosecutor Benedetto Roberti ordered raids Thursday across Italy involving cyclists believed to have ties to Ferrari. Italian riders who work with the doctor risk bans of three to six months. The law enforcement official, who is not authorized to speak publicly because the inquiry is still under way, said that Armstrong met with Ferrari frequently over the past several years, usually in St. Moritz, Switzerland, or Monte Carlo, Monaco. Ferrari had worked with the seven-time Tour winner for several years before their 2004 split. Reached at his home by the AP on Friday, Ferrari was asked when he last saw Armstrong. “I really don’t know. When, last year? Look, right now I don’t remember,” he said, “but I haven’t had a professional relationship with Mr. Armstrong for a long time.” Armstrong has always denied doping. He retired from cycling for the second time earlier this year. “Lance has not had a professional relationship with Dr. Ferrari since 2004, but he remains friends with the doctor’s family and sees them every once in a while. Lance last saw Dr. Ferrari about a year ago,” Armstrong lawyer Mark Fabiani said in an email. Recent meetings between Armstrong and Ferrari could provide evidence for a United States federal probe into doping in cycling. Armstrong is by far the highest-profile athlete under scrutiny in that case, which is before a grand jury in Los Angeles. Without identifying its source, Sports Illustrated said in January that when Italian authorities raided the home of Armstrong teammate Yaroslav Popovych last November in Italy, they found texts and emails linking the RadioShack team with Ferrari as recently as 2009.

Count on lots of radio chatter at Talladega Foes communicate during race; it’s advantageous for 2 cars to work together on track By PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer

TALLADEGA, Ala. — Some compare it to trying to land a date for the prom. Really, it’s just two parties haggling over a potentially lucrative business deal. Only in this case, the negotiations are taking place at nearly 200 mph. Drivers who usually only talk to their crew chiefs, spotters and per-

haps a teammate will be chatting it up with a bunch of guys they’re trying to beat during Sunday’s restrictor-plate race at Talladega Superspeedway, all looking for someone to go along with a one-car-leads, one-car-pushes, then-we’ll-switch arrangement. “There will be a lot of pleading, a lot of begging,” Clint Bowyer said. At Talladega and Daytona, the two NASCAR tracks where horsepower is limited by devices that keep speeds from getting out of hand, teams have learned that two cars paired together can go much faster than drafting in a larger pack, which used to be the norm

on these big triovals. One car runs out front with another right on his bumper, shoving him along. After a few laps, they must switch positions to keep the pusher from overheating his engine. During practice sessions on a gloomy, windy Friday, that’s about all anyone worked on: running in tandem and perfecting the all-important switch. Those tactics will be crucial in the Sprint Cup race. But the more intriguing subplots can only be heard, not seen, as drivers flip from one channel to another on their radios, looking for a partner during the ebbs and flows of a typ-

ical race. Offers will be made. Agreements reached. Whoever plays “Let’s Make A Deal” the best is likely to take the checkered flag in the Aaron’s 499. “It’s going to be interesting at the end of this thing,” Bowyer said. “It will be quite humorous.” He wasn’t laughing at the Daytona 500. After working much of the race with teammate Jeff Burton, Bowyer had to make alternate arrangements when the No. 31 car blew its engine. He worked out a deal with Kyle Busch, but couldn’t find him on the radio. “We couldn’t communicate as

hoisting a trophy of their own. “When those three guys got together last summer, (today) is what they were shooting for,” Collins said. “They’re pinning their hopes on making a championship run.” Miami swept the season series 3-0, with the winning margins between 9-12 points. The teams last played on March 25, a game in Miami where the 76ers led by as many as 16 in the first half and took an 8277 lead into the fourth. Wade took over from there, outscoring Philadelphia 18-17 over the final 12 minutes and leading the Heat to a 111-99 victory. Wade averaged 30.7 points on 52 percent shooting against the 76ers this season, with James averaging 22.7 points and Bosh17.7 points. Miami got another boost at practice Friday, when power forward Udonis Haslem went through the workout. Haslem hasn’t played since November because of a ruptured foot ligament, and the team is still being cautious about his potential postseason availability. Philadelphia had five players average double-digits against the Heat, led by Jodie Meeks (17.5) and Louis Williams (14.3). This Heat team was assembled for “multiple championships,” James insisted when Miami welcomed him, Wade and Bosh last July 9, one day after the two-time MVP went on television to announce he was leaving Cleveland.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Phil Jackson showed up for the first day of his final NBA playoff run with the Los Angeles Lakers in a plaid shirt and khaki shorts, lightly leaning on a walking stick. The most successful coach in league history looked a bit like a hiker, or maybe a shepherd — a role Jackson has filled with unparalleled skill over the past 22 years with the Bulls and Lakers. Inheriting two teams with enormous talent and no real success, he patiently nudged and directed them to greatness with his unique combination of basketball savvy and mental manipulation. But the walking stick subtly underlined the 65-year-old former Knicks forward’s nagging mobility problems, which are among several reasons he can’t wait to retire this summer. The shepherd is leaving the flock, and he says there’s nothing the Lakers can do about it. “I’m looking forward to going through this thing and giving it every bit of energy I have left until it’s over,” Jackson said. “My thoughts are about tomorrow, about practice.” Jackson clearly has plenty of energy for the last task on his career to-do list, and his final team — dominant at times, incompetent at others — certainly has kept him busy. After nearly quitting last summer in the glow of his 11th NBA title, Jackson decided he owed Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher and their teammates a chance to finish what they all started, returning to chase No.12 and an unprecedented fourth threepeat. “He made a decision, and it’s not like we expect him to change his mind,” said forward Pau Gasol, whose arrival in 2008 gave Jack-

son the tools necessary to build another championship club. “He knows better than anybody that he likes to play mind games with everybody here. I’m not mad at him for that. I know he’s here with us now.” The process continues Sunday in the Lakers’ playoff opener against New Orleans. Los Angeles is the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference after finishing with the same record (57-25) it posted last year despite a roller-coaster season featuring everything from a 17-1 post-All-Star break run to a five-game losing streak that ended just last week.

Jackson won his 1,155th career regular-season game — fifth-most in NBA history — on Wednesday in Sacramento, the same day he was fined $75,000 by the NBA for discussing the potential league lockout’s importance to his retirement decision. He never had a losing season or missed the playoffs while becoming the only coach in league history to win 70 percent of his games. Yet for all his incredible success, Jackson realizes he’s a tough act to emulate for assistant coach Brian

Shaw or whoever replaces him. The triangle offense, the heavy psychological component of his coaching technique, his unique personal style — none of it has led to a coaching tree of assistants spreading his successful approach through the league. Jackson, who titled his first autobiography “Maverick,” has little use for many of the spoils of his success. “I don’t know him,” said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who has four titles of his own. ���I mean, we don’t go out and have beers. But the incredible nature of what he’s done, I don’t think has really sunken in on people. What he’s done is unbelievable to me. To win three in a row as many times in a row as he’s done, we’ve tried 90 times and can’t win a second one in a row. For him to do that with two different teams, it’s just beyond my comprehension.” Ring or no ring, Jackson insists he’s done for good, finally retreating to Montana and leaving behind the life of constant air travel, endless media interviews and millionaire ego massage. He’ll walk away in typically idiosyncratic style, leaving a perennial contender with most of its key pieces still near their prime and an organization that adores him — and is run by his girlfriend, Lakers executive Jeanie Buss. “This is a team that will probably stay intact with most of its players,” Jackson said. “I’m the one that’s on his way to retirement, so it’s very interesting. It’s something that we have to acknowledge and go through.’’

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade started this Miami Heat postseason push a year ago. Not with The Decision. He made The Promise. When the Heat were bounced in the first round of the 2010 playoffs, Wade raised an eyebrow for emphasis and said, “This will be my last first-round exit for a while.” You know the rest. The roster was revamped. LeBron James and Chris Bosh arrived. The Heat won 58 games, all seeming meaningless since this season will be solely judged by playoff results, the first of those coming today when the Philadelphia 76ers visit for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. “I’m always thinking about that,” Wade said Friday when asked to recall his mindset when delivering those words. “I meant it.” Motivation is not scarce around the Heat, with James still looking for his first title, a slew of veterans with 10-plus seasons of experience seeking their first rings, and six months of jabs from doubters serving as fuel. Topping it off, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra dusted off the 2006 NBA championship trophy at a team meeting Thursday. “Inspiration and motivation,” James said. “Two words that describe it for me.” Philadelphia coach Doug Collins understands. His team — 150-1 underdogs at some sports books in this series — is acutely aware that Miami has spent the last 82 games thinking about this moment, the start of a run that the Heat hope ends with them

Day 2 of NFL mediation ends; talks resume Tuesday No signs of significant progress in negotiations between league, players.

By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — Negotiators for the NFL and its locked-out players wrapped up a second day of court-ordered talks Friday with no signs of significant progress. They plan to sit down again next week. The two sides left the federal courthouse in Minneapolis after about four hours of talks, following nine hours of meetings on Thursday. They will meet again Tuesday. Hall of Famer Carl Eller, who is representing retired players in the antitrust lawsuit against the

league, said he thinks the two sides are “moving forward,” but the process “slowed a little bit” Friday. “There is progress, but it wasn’t like we’re right around the corner,” Eller said. “We could resolve it if we had met on the weekend, but maybe not.” U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, who is overseeing the sessions, assigned some weekend homework, according to Michael Hausfeld, an attorney for the players. “The judge has asked us to provide answers to over a half-dozen questions that he’s asked,” Hausfeld said, declining to provide details. “There’s a lot of work.” With the 2011 season in jeopardy, Boylan is overseeing this round of talks after 16 days of mediated sessions in Washington

failed to secure a new labor pact. “We need to have some productivity,” Eller said. “We need to come out of here with something, and I think that there is a sense of realism on the judge’s part. It’s not just talk. Just getting together to talk is not productive.” U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson, who ordered the mediation, is still considering a request from the players to lift the lockout imposed by the owners. After an April 6 hearing, she said she planned to rule on the injunction request in a couple of weeks — which would mean next week. Players including MVP quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning filed the request along with a class-action antitrust suit against the league. The lawsuit has been combined with two other similar claims from retirees,

“There is progress, but it wasn’t like we’re right around the corner.”

Carl Eller Who represents the retired players in the antitrust lawsuit against the NFL

former players and rookies-to-be, with Eller the lead plaintiff in that group. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, four team owners and several league executives and lawyers left the building without speaking to reporters. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, via e-

mail, declined to comment. DeMaurice Smith, the NFL Players Association executive director, also refused to talk. He left the courthouse with lawyers and linebackers Ben Leber and Mike Vrabel, two other plaintiffs in the antitrust suit filed March 11 when the last collective bargaining agreement expired, the union dissolved and the lockout began. At least the mood appeared light. Reporters staking out the closed-door session were greeted with smiles and goodbyes from negotiators and attorneys as they departed. In a packed elevator on

the way down to the lobby, Smith needled Vrabel by deadpanning to media members inside, “All right, in all seriousness, Mike is going to have a statement. You ready?” Silence. Then laughter. The NFL’s first work stoppage since the 1987 strike, of course, is no joke for either side — especially for the fans who pay to sit in the seats at sparkling new stadiums, buy replica jerseys to show their support and watch out-of-market games on satellite television. “I’m a fan, too,” Eller said earlier this week. “We are very interested in having a football season.”

redshirt available, the decision was made for him to sit out. Naturally, all that time away from the game has Beachum anxious to show everyone what he can do. His teammates have certainly taken notice, heaping praise upon him this spring. Senior tackle Quinn Barham even called his performances in practice “ridiculous.” “Wow, that’s a little bit of an overstatement,” Beachum said with a laugh. “Quinn’s being a little generous there. I’m just working to get back in the swing of things. I’ve got lot to prove, losing a season like that. I’ve gotta let the coaches know where I stand. “I kinda feel like I’m back at square one almost – a freshman all over again. That’s where my whole motivation has come from.” 19 JUSTIN BROWN, WR Graham Zug and Brett Brackett have graduated. Curtis Drake’s return is still very much up in the air. And top target Derek Moye will sit out today’s scrimmage as a precaution, having suffered a concussion two weeks ago. Brown is eager to make the most of his opportunity, starting today. A likely starter in the fall, Brown has the height (6-foot-3) and speed to break out with increased snaps in 2011. But first he’s hoping to put his drop-filled performance in the Outback Bowl behind him. “That was probably the worst game I played since I started playing football,” Brown said. “I took that game very hard. If you ask anybody, I probably took that game the hardest. I feel like there were a lot of times when I could have changed the game by making a couple of catches and helping Matt (McGloin) out, but I let him down. And I let the team down. “I’ve been thinking about that game every single day and trying to use it as motivation to never let it happen again.” 71 DEVON STILL, DT As a whole, Penn State’s defensive line didn’t meet its own lofty standards in 2010. The Lions struggled to pressure quarterbacks and saw their sack numbers plunge way down. Things aren’t off to a great start for 2011, with projected starter Pete Massaro already out for the season with another torn ACL. Fellow ends Jack Crawford and Eric Latimore have sat out this spring to recover from nagging injuries. And Penn State must also replace Ollie Ogbu in the middle. Needless to stay, plenty of

burden will fall on the huge shoulders of Still. Still got an early start on improving for his senior season with a great game against Florida in the Outback Bowl. He said this week he adopted a more aggressive approach that he plans to bring over into this season. “I’m really going to try to play this season the way I played against Florida – real aggressive,” Still said. “Because we definitely have the linebacking corps that can make up for it if I take a chance. I’m really gonna try to stay on the aggressive side.”

Rookie, 6 others share Texas lead PGA Tour rookie Brendan Steele hits off the 14th tee during the second round of the Texas Open golf tournament, Friday, in San Antonio. At 3-under 141 for 36 holes, Steele shares the tournament lead with six others.

By PAUL J. WEBER The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — PGA Tour rookie Brendan Steele wrangled the winds and nearly emerged at the Texas Open solely atop the leaderboard. But on the tour’s toughest day in years, no one got off that easy. Steele carried the lead before double-bogeying on the par-4 15th, then blew a chance to reclaim it by missing a 6-footer for birdie on the final hole, keeping him in a rare seven-way tie atop the leaderboard at 3 under Friday. That is tied for the secondmost crowded leaderboard in the PGA Tour after 36 holes since 1970. Strong winds prevented anyone from breaking out, and Friday’s average round of 75.289 was the highest on the tour since the 2008 British Open. “I got pretty beat up out there,” Steele said. “I think we all kind of did.” After missing what would’ve been his fifth birdie, Steele tapped in No. 18 to finish at par-72. He shared the lead with Geoff Ogilvy (72), Rich Beem (70), Kevin Sutherland (70), Charley Hoffman (73), Brandt Snedeker (72), and Kevin Chappell (73).

it and score that first goal,” said Craig. Norfolk head coach Jon Cooper, however, got the start he was hoping for. “Scoring the first goal was monumental,” he said. “When you get that lead, sometimes it changes the way teams play.” Ritola set up Norfolk’s second goal when he stole the puck off Bortuzzo behind the Penguins net, skated out to the blue line, turned and fired a shot on net. Pouliot was stationed in front and deflected the shot past Thiessen for a 2-0 lead at 18:27 of the second period. “Some of those plays were uncharacteristic,” said Pens head coach John Hynes. “We made a couple mistakes.” In the third period the Penguins pressed in the Norfolk end and forced Tokarski to make several more brilliant saves, including a stop with his skate on a Chris Collins shot from the slot. “Anytime you make a big save like that it’s a momentum changer,” Collins said. “That (shot)

by Russ Adams, scoring Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Lucas Duda to put the Bisons up 3-2. Warren looked good on the mound and got help from his defense. Second baseman Doug Bernier made a diving catch in the second inning. Then one play later, shortstop Ramiro Pena made a stellar diving stop on a grounder up the middle and threw to first for the out. “I was a little aggressive out there tonight and the defense really backed me up. It was really fun to watch them,” Warren said. “It puts your mind at ease when they put the ball in play and you have those guys back there. It makes it easier to attack the zone.” The Yankees opened the scoring in the bottom of the third when Jesus Montero – who was 3-for-5 with three singles to up his average to .471 – knocked in Golson on a groundout to put SWB up 1-0. “He got off to a slow start last year and a hot start this year and he’s doing a good job behind the plate,” said Yankees manager Dave Miley, who was ejected in the seventh. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre went up 2-0 in the fourth on another

goes into the back of the net and it might be a different game.” The Penguins made things interesting late in the game when Keven Veilleux put home a rebound to make it 2-1 with three minutes to play. Norfolk buckled down after that, preventing the Penguins from getting another scoring chance to hold onto the one-goal lead. Hynes was happy to see his team apply more pressure in the Norfolk end during the third period, but the effort came too late. “We had that push at the end, got one … but we can’t wait until the last three minutes of the game to make that type of a push,” Hynes said. Down 1-0, the Penguins will try to regroup in Game 2 tonight. Losing the first game of the series erased any home-ice advantage for the Penguins, as each team has three home games for the remainder of the series. Craig didn’t seem worried, however. “We’ve been a good road team all year,” he said. “But our focus is on Game 2. They found a way to win the hockey game and drew first blood in the series, and we want to make sure we get to our game from the drop of the puck

(Saturday) and establish ourselves.”

Paul Tracy is still looking for a full-time ride AP PHOTO

A day that began with 5 under leading the pace was undone by winds that whipped higher than 30 mph. Players helplessly watched tee shots sail into the woods, and just 13 players shot under par Friday after there 50 sub-par scores in the opening round. Defending champion Adam Scott followed his openinground 68 with a 74. But on a day like this, 2 over was good enough to leave the Masters runner-up and three others just a

stroke back. “I can’t imagine anyone really running away with it,” Scott said. A seven-way tie after 36 holes hasn’t been seen on the tour since the 1977 Westchester. The record was an eight-way tie at the 2001 Greater Hartford Open. “It was blowing when it was dark this morning. It’s more like windy Texas days,” Ogilvy said. “Happy to get out of it with no damage done and still looking forward to the weekend.”

LONG BEACH, Calif. — Paul Tracy isn’t the sit-around type, so he’s got a bevy of high-speed toys to keep him busy, from bikes to boats, even a dune buggy-type contraption called a sand rail. None of it has been able to quiet his jonesing for racing wheel-to-wheel at 200 mph in an IndyCar. “I’m not happy being at home and relaxing, that’s the problem,” Tracy said. “I haven’t been able to find anything in my life that gives me the satisfaction and fills my needs of what it is

that is my being.” Tracy has had a lot of idle time over the past couple of years. Once a bad-boy star of CART and Champ Car, “PT” was left out when his team’s owner, Gerry Forsythe, opted not to join IndyCar after it unified with Champ Car in 2008. Since then, Tracy has piecemealed his schedule together, running one race for Vision Racing in 2008, six for KV Racing the next year and five with KV and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing a year ago. The 42-year-old had just one

race lined up this season, for Dreyer & Reinbold at the Indianapolis 500, before catching a break and signing a five-race deal with newly restructured Dragon Racing. It starts this weekend at the Grand Prix of Long Beach, a place he knows as well as anyone. Tracy made his first career start on the 11-turn, 1.968-mile course through the streets of downtown, earned his first career victory there and won in the shadow of the Queen Mary three other times.

Novocure receives approval for new cancer treatment

Medical device maker Novocure says it has received U.S. approval for a firstof-a-kind treatment which fights cancerous brain tumors using electrical energy fields. The Food and Drug Administration has approved the device for patients with aggressive brain cancer that has returned after treatment with chemotherapy. Patients with recurring brain cancer usually live only a few months. For decades doctors have treated cancer with drugs, radiation and surgery. Novocure’s NovoTTF offers a fourth approach. The portable device uses electric fields to disrupt the division of cancer cells that allows tumors to grow. It sends the signals through four electrodes which are taped to the patient’s head. A 237-patient study showed that people using the device lived about as long as those taking chemotherapy. However, patients had significantly fewer side effects.

Crude prices not emergency

Tops and dresses for girls distributed by My Michelle and sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Dillard’s, J.C. Penney and other retailers nationwide from January through March of this year are being recalled. The clothing was sold in various styles including tops with beaded necklaces attached to the collar, and tops with metallic beads attached. All styles of the tops and dresses have a black tag on the collar with pink print that reads “mymichelle.” The jewelry and decorative trim attached to the clothing contain high levels of lead, which is toxic if ingested by young children. About 90,000 items are part of the recall. Call 800-960-8791 for more information.

Sales of Barbie helped Mattel Inc.’s revenue rise 8 percent during the first quarter. But higher costs for its lawsuit over the Bratz dolls and other expenses sent net income down 33 percent. Still, results for the quarter, which is a small one for toy makers because it follows the crucial holiday quarter, were higher than analysts expected. On Thursday, Mattel’s chief rival Hasbro Inc. said its first-quarter net income fell 71 percent while revenue was nearly flat at $672 million.

Iran’s oil minister says rising crude prices do not signal the sector is in an “extraordinary situation” and there is no need for an emergency OPEC meeting. According to the official IRNA news agency, Masoud Mirkazemi said the “market has decided the price of crude based on supply and demand.” He spoke at an oil expo in Tehran Friday. Iran is highly dependent on oil exports and traditionally pushes for higher prices. Crude has gained 28 percent since Feb. 15, as the Libya conflict extended market concerns about supply risks and signs of a recovering U.S. jobs market bolstered optimism that crude demand will strengthen. Iran holds the OPEC presidency. Mirkazemi said no members have sought an emergency meeting.

The company supplies most of the processors that run PCs, and its earnings and forecast will indicate how well computers are likely to do in the coming months. The popularity of Apple’s iPad is taking sales away from PCs. That in turn will affect Intel’s business. The chips for tablets like the iPad were pioneered not by Intel, but by ARM Holdings.

Inflation mostly tame Excluding food and gas, core index up only .1%

By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer

ASHINGTON — Americans paid more for food and gas last month, but outside of those volatile categories inflation remained tame. The Consumer Price Index rose 0.5 percent in March, the Labor Department said Friday. That matched February’s increase, the largest since the recession ended in June 2009. In the past 12 months, the index has increased 2.7 percent, the biggest rise since December 2009. Excluding the volatile food and gas

categories, the so-called core index rose 0.1percent and it is up only1.2 percent in the past year. Separately, the Federal Reserve said U.S. factories produced more consumer goods, business equipment and raw materials in March, boosting manufacturing activity for the ninth straight month. Overall industrial production increased 0.8 percent. Factory production, the largest single segment of industrial production, increased 0.7 percent last month. Manufacturing has been a key driver of economic growth since the recession ended. That continued last month, even with supply chain disruptions stem-

ming from the crisis in Japan. Consumers are spending more, but the steep increase in food and gas prices could limit their ability to purchase discretionary goods and services. Gasoline jumped 5.6 percent last month and has risen nearly 28 percent in the past year. Consumers paid an average price of $3.81a gallon nationwide on Friday according to the travel group AAA. Food prices rose 0.8 percent last month, the largest increase in almost three years. Prices for fruits and vegetables, dairy products, chicken and beef all increased. Coffee costs rose 3.5 percent.

IRS paid $513 million in undeserved tax credits By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service has paid out more than a half-billion dollars in homebuyer tax credits to people who probably didn’t qualify, a government investigator said Friday. Most of the money — about $326 million — went to more than 47,000 taxpayers who didn’t qualify as firsttime homebuyers because there was evidence they had already owned homes, said the report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. Other credits went to prison inmates, taxpayers who bought homes before the

credit was enacted and people who did not actually buy homes. Friday’s report is the latest in a series of audits George has conducted on the homebuyer tax credit. It says the agency paid out $513 million in questionable claims for the homebuyer tax credit. “The IRS has taken positive steps to strengthen controls and help prevent the issuance of inappropriate homebuyer credits,” George said. “However, many of the actions occurred after hundreds of thousands of homebuyer credits had already been issued, including fraudulent and erroneous credits totaling millions of dollars.”

The popular credit provided up to $8,000 to first-time homebuyers and up to $6,500 to qualified current owners who bought another home during parts of 2009 and 2010. IRS spokeswoman Michelle Eldridge said the agency worked hard to enforce a complicated tax credit that provided nearly $29 billion to more than 4 million taxpayers. The agency audited nearly 448,000 returns and blocked or denied nearly 426,000 questionable claims, she said. In all, the agency’s enforcement efforts saved more than $1.3 billion and identified more than 200 criminal schemes, she said.

NEW YORK — Bank of America Corp. is still trying to shake off troubles arising from mortgages written during the housing bubble. Higher fees from battling lawsuits and costs related to its mortgage business led to a 39 percent decline in BofA’s first-quarter earnings, the bank announced Friday. It wasn’t what investors wanted to hear, since just three months ago the bank announced several big charges and settlements that seemed to resolve many of its mortgage problems. “It seems like some of the mortgage-related issues that they said were behind them are actually not behind them yet,” said Paul Miller, a bank analyst at FBR Capital Markets. The bank is fighting lawsuits from investors and insurers who say that during the housing bubble they were duped into buying loans that were based on fraudulent documents. Bank of America set aside $1 billion to repurchase those mortgages and also added $352 million to its legal expenses in the first quarter. The bank had already taken a $4.1 billion expense in the previous quarter for mortgage repurchase claims and $1.5 billion for litigation expenses. “The numbers are getting worse and nobody seems to have a handle on how bad this could be,” said Miller. BofA’s stock fell 2.4 percent to $12.82. Bank of America has lost 34 percent of its value over the past year, making it the laggard among major banks. The Charlotte, N.C. bank earned $1.7 billion, or 17 cents per share, compared with $2.8 billion, or 28 cents a share in the first quarter of last year. Revenue fell to $26.9 billion from $32 billion in the same period last year. Most banks will likely have to pay more fees and fines in the future for investigations on other mortgage-related issues. Bank of America and other banks are waiting for a decision from the attorneys general of all 50 states who are investigating allegations that the banks bungled foreclosure documents, and a separate decision from the Securities and Exchange Commission on its probe into misleading mortgage-backed investments. On Wednesday, Bank of America was among 16 of the nation’s largest mortgage lenders who were directed by the Federal Reserve and other federal banking regulators to reimburse homeowners who were improperly foreclosed upon. The Fed warned of more fines in the future. Separately, Bank of America paid $1.1 billion in cash to Assured Guaranty Ltd., an insurer that also said the bank should repurchase its shoddy mortgages. The bank also entered into an agreement worth $470 million to share losses on insuring additional mortgages.

The storm now approaching from the west will serve to strengthen the wind from off the ocean and bring showers and drizzle into the afternoon. As a cold front approaches tonight, the rain will increase in coverage and intensity, and the wind will start gusting to 30 mph with higher gusts in the mountains. There may also be a thunderstorm. The rain will end abruptly after midnight behind a cold front, and westerly wind Sunday will sponsor partly sunny skies. There may be an afternoon shower. More showers will arrive on Tuesday followed by a very warm day on Wednesday.

For The Associated Press

Like freshly washed laundry dancing on the line on a sunny day, this season’s white decor is a welcome sight. Just when we’re ready to fling open the windows, shake out rugs and scrub the memory of winter away, stores are responding by stocking tabletop accessories, throw pillows, furniture and more in crisp whites and soothing creams. • A few white accents make an enormous difference, so you don’t have to spend a lot on this update. • Change out dark lampshades. Replace jewel-toned throws for nubby vanilla ones. Store away the heavy window treatments, and put up snowy voile curtains or sleek white blinds. Give the room trim a coat of bright white. Pull off winter’s heavier slipcovers and rugs and substitute white canvas and cotton. See WHITE, Page 3C

Is your garage ready for that electric car? By TOM KRISHER AP Auto Writer

With gas prices rising and instability in the Middle East, the thought of an electric car in the garage might be getting more appealing. Before you jump for the new technology, though, make sure your garage is ready to be a refueling station. Depending on which car you buy and how old your home is, it could cost a couple of thousand dollars to prep the garage so you can charge a car quickly enough to take off for work in the morning with a full battery. Then again, it could cost nothing at all. Start with the age of the home.

Older houses may not have enough juice to handle an electric car. Fifty years ago, who would have thought we’d be plugging in cars at night? So the garage may have to be rewired. According to experts, you need at least a 12-amp circuit to charge a car in a reasonable amount of time. You also need a circuit in the garage with little or nothing else on it. Anything else drawing power from the same circuit can slow the charging. Even if you have a dedicated circuit in the garage, it still may not work for you. Most garages have standard 120-volt outlets. But a dedicated 240-volt outlet, similar to the kind that powers an electric dryer, can cut the charg-

Then again, it could cost nothing at all. ing time in half. That’s important depending on the electric car you buy. Two mass-market electric cars, the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf, have different power systems and different charging needs. The Leaf is all electric and can go up to 100 miles on a single charge. But it needs more juice than the Volt to refill the batteries. It takes eight hours to recharge a Leaf even with a 240-volt

circuit, double that at 120 volts. The Volt can go only about 40 miles on battery power, but it has a small gas motor on board that can keep the car going when the battery runs out. With its smaller battery pack, it can be recharged in 10 hours even on 120 volts, five hours or less at 240. AP PHOTO GM estimates that recharging James Brazell as he poses with a charging unit for his Chevy Volt the Volt will add no more than electric car at his home in Asheville, N.C.

IN BRIEF

••• Q&A Q: I have a small Christmas cactus that, for the past three-plus years, has done very well. It sits on a table in front of a window that faces east. I water it once a month. But recently it has started to look bad. Some of the branches are wilting, and the leaves are wrinkly. Some of them look fine. It is still in the original soil and pot. What advice can you give me? A: Ron Smith, a horticulturist at North Dakota State University who has a web page devoted to the Christmas cactus, said repotting the plant may help. But before you do, he suggested taking about six cuttings to produce new plants, in case the original doesn’t make it. To do that, he said, take leaf sections from the healthiest part of the plant and let them sit on a counter for a couple of days. Then stick them in a clean, welldraining pot filled with pasteurized potting soil. Eventually they’ll root and produce new plants. Then repot the original plant in a new container filled with pasteurized potting soil made specifically for Christmas cacti or succulents, and give it a good dose of

water with a trace of fertilizer, Smith said. Or, instead of fertilizing, you can use a fortified potting soil. Discard any parts of the plant that are withered or limp beyond recovery, he said. Smith’s Christmas cactus page is at http://www.ext.nodak.edu/extnews/hortiscope/ houseplnts/xmascctus.htm. What’s new A new retrofit kit lets you replace your string trimmer’s monofilament line with a fourline blade-cutting system. The line blades in the AeroFlex Universal Kit are made of copolymers and are touted as lasting 50 times longer than traditional nylon monofilament line. The company says they’re tough enough to cut through heavy weeds and vines that strings can’t, but flexible enough that they can glance off hard surfaces without breaking. The blades also produce less drag, so the trimmer can operate with less power at lower speeds. That reduces fuel use, noise, engine emissions, trimmer wear and user fatigue, the company says. The Aero-Flex Universal Kit sells for $29.97 at Lowe’s stores, or it can be ordered for $29.95 plus shipping at http:// www.aero-flex.com. — McClatchy-Tribune Newspapers

On the shelf Even seasoned gardeners can find themselves puzzled about pruning. “The Pruning Answer Book” helps clear up the confusion. The pocket-size book, by the late Lewis Hill and Penelope O’Sullivan, covers the basics such as what to prune when, what equipment to use, how to make the cuts and why pruning is beneficial. Sections are devoted to different types of plants, and there’s one on artistic pruning to create such forms as topiary and espalier. A plant-by-plant pruning guide in the back of the book lets you find quick guidance on a particular tree, shrub or other plant. “The Pruning Answer Book” is published by Storey Publishing and sells for $14.95.

The Leaf has a timer so the owner can set on and off times for charging based on the day of the week. The Volt charger from GM costs $495, and about $1,500 to install, although it could be more depending on how much work is needed at the house, Gross said. And whether you need a special charging station depends on how far you drive. If you go only 20 miles a day, a 120-volt outlet will work for either car because the battery doesn’t have to be fully charged every night.

Growing a vegetable garden just got easy fore the end of the season, the grass or weeds will be dead, and your plants’ roots will have grown into and though the nearly decomposed paper. The paper is needed only to start your garden, not in future years.

By LEE REICH For The Associated Press

Some things bear repeating: Plant vegetables. The tastes of fresh-picked beans, lettuce and tomatoes, grown from seeds of varieties bred for flavor rather than commercial appeal, will knock your socks off. Not to mention the satisfaction of doing “work” that puts food directly into your belly. Planned correctly, the most basic vegetable garden takes little time or effort. Here’s how to plan and plant this most basic garden. Location, location First, the site. For the plants’ sake, full sun — at least six hours daily — and well-drained soil are a must. If water stays puddled on the ground more than a few hours after rain has stopped, roots will suffocate. For your sake, locate the garden as close to your house as possible — ideally, no farther from your door than you can throw the kitchen sink. With the garden close by, you’ll have no qualms about running out to grab another pepper for roasting or snipAP PHOTO ping some basil for a salad. And while you’re there, you might Rows of, from left to right, bush beans, sweet corn and tomatoes on a bamboo trellis in Lee Reich’ even stop to pull a weed or two. vegetable garden in New Paltz, N.Y. Planned correctly, the most basic vegetable garden takes little Easy beginnings The traditional way to create the garden is to till the soil a couple of times, wait a couple of weeks, till again, wait again, and then plant in rows, between which you till or hoe through the season. All that takes time and effort. The quickest and easiest way to start a garden is to merely smother the existing lawn or weeds. One reason most gardeners till is to aerate the soil, but your soil won’t need aeration if you lay it out in permanent plant-

time or effort.

ing beds, each 36 inches wide, and paths, each 18 inches wide. Make a plan on paper, and keep the beds and paths in the same place year after year. Walk only on the paths; never set foot in a bed. If your garden is to be fenced (which is necessary if rabbits or deer roam nearby), extend the garden’s boundary about a foot outside the fence. This gets the garden edge away from under the fence, where weeds would become tangled and too hard to

pull. After you have mapped out your garden, search the Internet or Yellow Pages for local “Compost” and “Arborists.” You want compost for the planting beds, and wood chips from an arborist for the paths between the beds. (Some recycling centers give these valuable materials away free for the hauling.) Plan on spreading a 3-inch depth of either of these materials, which

works out to about a cubic yard for every 100 square feet needed. Before you lay down the chips and compost, mow or knock down existing weeds or lawn, then smother them beneath paper. Use newspaper — black-andwhite pages four sheets thick — or commercially available paper mulch, such as Horto Paper. Wet the paper as you lay it down to soften it and keep it from blowing, and overlap the edges. Be-

Plant Now plant, right into the compost. When planting in beds, space the plants closer together than usually recommended. You can crowd three or four rows down each bed because you’ll be doing all your weeding and harvesting from the paths, rather than having to walk between the rows. As soon as you lay down your compost, while the weather is cool, plant pea, radish and spinach seeds, onion sets and small plants of broccoli, lettuce and parsley. When the weather turns reliably warm, about when honeysuckle, wild cherry and locust trees bloom, set out tomato and pepper plants and plant seeds of cucumbers and bush green beans. In early summer, make another planting of green beans and cucumbers, and in late summer, plan for fall by sowing lettuce again, along with beets and turnips. After this season’s successes, you may be prompted to improve your garden next year, perhaps installing automatic, drip irrigation, perhaps starting some of your own transplants. This year, though, vow to weed. Just a few minutes a week is all the time needed, as long as you do it regularly. More details about easily beginning and maintaining a vegetable garden are in my book “Weedless Gardening” (Workman Publishing, 2001).

Gross said she’s working to change building codes so that all garages have 240-volt outlets to charge cars, but she conceded that will take years. Many auto-industry analysts say it will be years before electric cars are in a lot of garages because cars powered by internal combustion engines will continue to get more efficient. A120-volt outlet wouldn’t work for James Brazell, 84, of Asheville, N.C., one of the first people in the country to buy a Volt. He didn’t want to use any gasoline, yet he makes several short trips per day, and on some days, when he attends class at the University of North Carolina Asheville, he will drive 51 miles, more than the Volt’s electric range. At first, he used the standard outlet in the garage of his home at a retirement community, but he ended up using a half-gallon of gasoline in four days. Then the charger he ordered from GM arrived at a cost of $530 including shipping. An electrician in his community installed it for an estimated $300, though he hasn’t received the final bill. Now he plugs the car in after short trips. “Pretty much I top it up every time I bring it into the garage,” he said. Before the charging station, the 120-volt outlet didn’t charge his car much between trips, he said. Even though he’s a retired oilcompany executive, Brazell knows that the country will need to change the way it gets around because oil is a finite resource. And he likes driving by gas stations. “It makes me feel good, especially when gasoline went up 30 cents a gallon the day I got the car back here.”

Couple has disagreement over towels and other hotel etiquette questions Dear Abby: My wife and I recently returned from a vacation where we had a disagreement regarding hotel service and towels. Regarding the towels, my wife thinks we should hang them to dry daily for reuse later. I say the cost of washing the towels is included in the price of the room, and I want a fresh towel daily. The other issue is my wife feels obligated to tip the housekeeping staff. I have never felt that obligation. Not a single housekeeper has been exceptional, regardless of the hotel we stayed in. We’re hoping you could shed some

DEAR ABBY ADVICE light on hotel etiquette. — West Virginia Traveler Dear Traveler: Your wife appears to be a conservationist. Although you prefer fresh towels daily, many travelers voluntarily forgo this service to help hotels conserve water and save energy. If you prefer to do otherwise, that’s your privilege — and it’s not worth arguing over. As to tipping the housekeeping staff, has it occurred to you that you have never received exceptional service because you never offered

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

a tip? Some hotel guests talk to the housekeeper at the time they arrive to request extra hangers, soap, washcloths, etc. — And offer a gratuity at that time. And when they do, the staff usually goes out of their way to be accommodating. Try it — they need the extra money, and they’ll spoil you if you let them. Dear Abby: My husband, “Parker,” and I have a 4-year-old son, “Ethan.” Recently, my mother-in-law suggested we have a will drawn up, stating who will take care of Ethan if something happens to us. She’s an attorney and has offered to do it for us. Parker and I agree that it is a good idea and appreciate her offer to do the paperwork. The problem?

CRYPTOQUOTE

We don’t want her raising our son. We have another relative in mind. My mother-in-law is a nice enough person and would not be cruel or abusive to Ethan, but she was not a good mother to Parker and his siblings. She’s extremely selfish and self-absorbed. We know she’ll be extremely offended if we don’t name her as our child’s guardian. I would like to hire another attorney, but she will take offense to that as well. She hasn’t stopped hounding us about this issue. Please tell us how to handle this. — Trapped in the Golden State Dear Trapped: Hire an attorney

and have the document drawn up. And when your mother-in-law raises the subject again, you and Parker should thank her and tell her it has already been done, so she doesn’t have to worry about it anymore. The woman may be selfish and self-absorbed, but she is absolutely right that you should have your wishes put in writing.

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A special relationship takes the spotlight. You’ll interact with someone you feel a great affinity toward. You’ll do activities similar to what you’ve done before, and yet new emotions come up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You might be in a position to sell merchandise, but what you will really sell is your own winning personality. You like people, and people like you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have no desire to accumulate things. What does interest you is what you’ll have to do to earn a certain symbol of achievement. It’s not about the trophy, but what the trophy represents. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your financial decisions will affect more than just you. An open dialogue about your financial picture will bring you into harmony with your team. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In the past, someone told you that you were being too sensitive, and yet this same sensitivity will lead you to good fortune today. Your feelings will go out like tentacles, sensing the right opportunity for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A creative tool will enhance your experience. Maybe it’s a camera that takes pictures you’ll cherish for years to come or a GPS system that helps you explore a new place without the stress of getting lost. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). While you’re searching to find the cure for negativity, you may inadvertently cause more of the unwanted condition because it’s

all you’re thinking about. Instead, dwell on what’s already working well, and you’ll get more of that. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Money is not the answer, but having more of it will change the questions. You’d like to get to a point where you are no longer worried about surviving and are instead thinking only about thriving. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be inspired to take a risk because you’ll have a funny feeling you’ll make good. Others will be delighted by and a little bit jealous of your uncanny luck. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. Not so much right now. True, there is an opponent within you, but it’s a friendly one, imbued with an affable spirit of competition. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your desire for a certain dream may be waning, so it’s time to remind yourself what you came to do. Is there a picture that will remind you? It’s too soon to give up on your goal. Fight for it instead. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Do what feels comfortable to you. Others will try to get you to do what works for them, and it’s not right for you at all. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 16). You are socially oriented and will gain youthful vitality as you interact with a variety of different people. Partnerships will be easier than ever to establish. There’s a financial boost in the next five weeks. You’ll be driven to perfect a skill in May. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 12, 39, 16 and 50.

Volvo S60 sporting performance and safety galore NUTS AND BOLTS

WHAT IS IT?

412 Autos for Sale

WHAT I LIKED BEST: Crisp handling, awesome power, stunning styling and safety galore. WHAT I LIKED LEAST: Some awkward controls, including a stupid ignition system.

The S60 is arguably the best-llooking sedan Volvo has ever offered. Its sleek and sporty exterior is complemented by a simi larly sporty interior. The cabin features high-g grade materials, an elegant design and incredibly comfortable seats.

into the lower console with a gracefully swooping panel that has a sizable vacant area behind it. Aesthetically, this design resembles a tumbling waterfall with a serene space behind its tumbling facade. Ergonomically, it enables Volvo to place many of the S60’s key controls within easier reach of the pilot. Unfortunately, the controls themselves aren’t as ergonomically efficient as they should be. Which brings us to my only complaints about the S60. Volvo’s version of the multi-control switches popularized by other

412 Autos for Sale

412 Autos for Sale

European luxury brands – like its competitors’ controls – seems to complicate the process of choosing functions and adjusting settings. Rather than resulting in an intuitive, single-point interface, these systems force the driver think about how to accomplish a simple task and then make doing so a multi-step procedure. Depending on the display mode at any given time, it can take several steps just to change a radio station on the S60. Starting the S60 is also unnecessarily complicated. There’s no ignition key per se, but rather a fob that must be inserted into a hole near the

steering wheel. Once inserted, you have to push an adjacent button to start the vehicle. Shutting down the S60 requires a similar sequence of activity. I honestly couldn’t figure out how to turn everything off the first time I parked the S60. But once I learned the starting procedure and how to control all of its functions, the S60 T6 AWD provided nothing but delight… and plenty of it. Solid, tight and responsive were the first thoughts that entered my mind during the first stint behind the VOLVO Page 2

Poking his head out of the house to get a closer look at the Volvo S60 in the driveway, 11year-old Brandon was visibly excited. “You’re testing a Maserati!” he shouted as a statement, not a question. Told that wasn’t the case, he was dubious. He emerged from the house in bare feet for a closer look. He studied the front of the 2011 S60 T6 AWD, the slowly circled the copper color car. “Yeah, it’s a Maser…. No, wait… it’s a, it’s a…. “…a Volvo,” I finished his sentence. “Yeah, I see the symbol,” Brandon conceded. “But it looks like a Maserati, doesn’t it, dad?” I’m not sure that it looks like anything other than the sportiest sedan Volvo has ever created. The Swedish automaker has been making attractive and distinctive vehicles for several years, but Volvo built boxy beasts for so long that it’s sometimes hard to shake that image. The S60 should obliterate it once and for all. The thought of someone – even an 11-year-old – mistaking a Volvo for a Maserati would have seemed preposterous 25 years ago. But now it’s a reality. And the S60’s sportiness doesn’t end with the shape of its sheet metal. The interior is equally sporty. It’s also distinctive and elegant, with plenty of plush padding, soft-touch panels, and ample applications of what appears to be genuine metal accents and trim. The most expansive of those forms the face of a 3-D center console stack. In what has become a trademark of Volvo interior design, the center stack is canted toward the driver and flows

Wheel. Gone is any hint of the vagueness that made previous Volvos a little less fun to drive than, say, class competitors from Audi and BMW. The S60 still doesn’t communicate quite as intimately with its pilot as the A4 or 3-Series, but it nevertheless speaks quite clearly and is extremely easy to understand. Plunge into even a sharp curve and the S60 T6 AWD will unflinchingly obey and then do its best to fulfill your wishes. Its best is more than good enough, thanks to precise and progressive steering and a suspension that sticks to corners like cotton balls cling to Velcro. Traction is superb, even on slick surfaces. An all-wheel drive system diverts power between the front and rear wheels to maximize grip and equalize weight transfer. The AWD synthesizes functions of the S60’s traction control and anti-skid systems to help ensure optimum performance regardless of the driving situations and conditions. As impressed as I was with its handling, I was awed even more by the 135

S60 T6’s drivetrain. Propulsion is provided by a silky smooth, 24-valve, inline six-cylinder engine featuring an intercooled turbocharger. Capable of 300 horsepower and 325 pounds-feet of torque, according to Volvo, the engine is notable for its low-end thrust and wide powerband. Maximum torque is produced at just 2,100 rpm, and power doesn’t start fading until 4,200 rpm. The result? The S60 T6 explodes off the line and hits 60 mph in well under six seconds. Rolling acceleration is equally impressive. Mash the throttle and the S60 T6 rockets past other vehicles regardless of the prevailing highway traffic speed. Drivers who don’t feel quite the need for speed that I do and don’t care about all-wheel drive might be perfectly content with the other S60 model, the T5. Volvo says its turbocharged five-cylinder engine produce 250 horsepower and 266 poundsfeet of torque, which should be good enough to deliver 6.8-second zero-to60 times. The S60 T5’s starting price of around $31,000 is nearly $7,000 less than the T6 AWD and looks like a bargain. Especially since it includes many of the items on the T6’s expansive list of creature comfort features and can be

equipped with the same convenience and safety option packages. My test car had several of those, including Volvo’s innovative “Pedestrian Detection” system. Utilizing a grillemounted radar sensor and windshield-mounted camera, the system in daylight can detect pedestrians that dart in front of the car, sounding a warning and then automatically applying maximum braking if the driver doesn’t respond in time to stop in front of or steer around the pedestrian. Volvo says the system can avoid an impact at speeds up to 22 mph. Not surprisingly, I couldn’t enlist a volunteer to help me prove that it works, but other auto writers vouch for its effectiveness. The system makes the S60’s other standard and optional safety systems, such as adaptive cruise control, distance alert, lane departure warning and even City Safety – which can avert a collision at speeds up to 19 mph with

vehicles in front that stop suddenly – seem so 2010 by comparison. And the new S60 T6 AWD is so far beyond its Volvo ancestors that it can be considered a new branch sprouting from the family tree. If this first model produced since Volvo was acquired by China’s Geely Holding Group is any indication, I can’t wait to see what else

grows on that branch.
