County plans to reopen Seven Tubs area gate



District lines don’t prevent run by Vinsko Democrat hopes to challenge Barletta even though he no longer lives in same district. By BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – Bill Vinsko said he now lives outside of the boundaries of the 11th Congressional District because the Republican National Committee “saw me coming.” Vinsko, 37, of South Wilkes-Barre, announced his candidacy for the congressional seat before district lines were redrawn, when Wilkes-Barre was part of the 11th.

When the GOP-driven redistricting moved the lines, Vinsko was not deterred – he remained in the 11th District race even though his address is a few hundred feet from the border between the 11th and 17th districts. Vinsko said the Democratic Party had targeted U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta for defeat because he is a Republican living in a predominantly Democratic district. And even though the new 11th District shows a slight edge in Democratic registrations – 44 See VINSKO, Page 12A

WASHINGTON — More people pull the night shift. Teens text past midnight and stumble to class at dawn. Travelers pack red-eye flights. Nodding off behind the wheel isn’t the only threat from a lack of shut-eye. There’s growing evidence that people who regularly sleep too little and at the wrong time suffer long-lasting consequences that a nap won’t cure: An increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and other health problems. “We have a societal conspiracy for sleep deprivation,” says Russell Sanna of Harvard Medical School’s sleep medicine division, who attended a TEDMED conference last week where scientists called sleep loss one of health care’s big challenges.

11th Congressional District hopeful still raised a lot compared to Gene Stilp, whom Vinsko is facing in Democratic primary. By ANDREW M. SEDER

Just how unhealthy is it? Consider how sleep may play a role in the nation’s diabetes epidemic. Studies have long shown that people who sleep fewer than five hours a night have an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, the kind that tends to strike later in life.

The early fundraising momentum Wilkes-Barre attorney Bill Vinsko had has waned considerably in the first three months of this year. But it’s still plenty more than his challenger for the Democratic nomination in the 11th Congressional District was able to pull in. Vinsko entered 2012 with $52,786 in the bank, thanks to $105,546 in contributions received in the final six months of 2011. But donations have slowed since the calendar flipped over to a new year. Between Jan. 1 and April 4, Vin2 0 1 2 sko’s campaign committee reported ELECTION raising $28,178. In that same time, the committee reported spending $49,702, leaving a balance of $31,262 in the bank. Vinsko, 37, will face suburban Harrisburg political watchdog Gene Stilp in next Tuesday’s primary with the victor earning a match against freshmen incumbent Rep.

The committee for Barletta, who saw the 11th District fortified with potential Republican voters when the boundaries were redrawn in December, reported raising $124,708 for the quarter and $760,739 for the election cycle which began in 2011. His committee spent $155,259 this year and reported cash on hand of $239,197.

4 plead guilty in woman’s kidnap, beating They were charged after police said Joan Rosengrant was assaulted in 2010.


WILKES-BARRE – Four men charged with kidnapping and beating a woman in December 2010 pleaded guilty Monday to related charges. Young Williams, 40, Ronald Cottle, 36, Kevin Lewis, 25, and Timothy Buckner, 34, all of Wilkes-Barre, pleaded guilty to

one count each relating to the assault on Joan Rosengrant. The four men were scheduled to stand trial on several charges Monday. Lewis and Williams pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal conspiracy, use of an electronic incapacitation device, while Cottle and Buckner pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.

W-B Area CTC seeks bids for equipment By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

PLAINS TWP. -- The WilkesBarre Area Career & Technical Center Joint Operating Committee made quick work of an agenda on Monday that included several requests for bids or proposals for equipment and the purchase of text books for several of the school’s shops. The board unanimously approved soliciting bids for simulation lab equipment for the practical nursing program. According to simulation program coordinator Laura Zdancewicz, the estimated $65,000 in equipment will enhance and update the clinical simulation equipment the school has been using for approximately the last four years. The simulation lab allows nursing students to experience life-like situations and practice techniques in a non-threatening setting and in a way that can be reviewed and analyzed by students and instructors, Zdancew-

icz said. The original agenda item for the simulation lab equipment called for the purchase of the equipment from Laerfal Medical and indicated the company is the only one who provides the type of equipment needed. However, the board voted on and approved an amended motion that called for soliciting bids to meet established purchasing policies and procedures. The board also approved requesting bids for air conditioning for the health assistant program area, a request for proposal for a camera service contract, as well as the solicitation of three quotes for a new kettle for the cafeteria. In other business, the board approved the purchase of textbooks totaling more than $11,680 for the horticulture, Auto II, Law Enforcement, Information Technology, Cosmetology II, Masonry and Electrical shops.

pleaded guilty earlier this month to a charge of criminal conspiracy and will be sentenced by Polachek Gartley on May 18. He faces a maximum of five years in prison. Assistant district attorneys Michelle Hardik and Molly Hanlon Mirabito are prosecuting the cases. Each of the men involved is represented by his own attorney: Williams, by Mark Bufalino; Bernsdorf, Brian Corcoran; Cottle, Allyson Kacmarski; Lewis, John Pike; and Buckner, Demetrius Fannick.

According to court papers, the men were charged after police said Rosengrant was punched, stunned with a Taser and had boiling water poured on her feet on Dec. 30, 2010. Rosengrant told police she was forced into Bernsdorf’s Monroe Street home and beaten for several hours. Police said the men originally approached Rosengrant about an ex-boyfriend who was incarcerated and allegedly robbed one of the men. Rosengrant suffered cuts, burns and an orbital fracture as a

West Hazleton man faces trial in 2010 baseball-bat attack

William A. Gogel, 38, and his brother Albert, 37, allegedly assaulted 2 other men.

Patrick A. Barney


WILKES-BARRE – One of two brothers charged with assaulting another pair of brothers with a baseball bat in January 2010 will stand trial on related charges in June, a county judge said Monday. William A. Gogel, 38, with a last known address of Winter Avenue, West Hazleton, will face charges of aggravated assault, possessing an instrument of crime, simple assault, reckless endangerment and harassment at a June 11 trial, Judge David Lupas said. Gogel had been scheduled to stand trial this week, but his attorney, Ed Olexa, requested a continuance. According to court papers, Gogel, and his brother, Albert, 37, of West 15th Street, Hazleton, were charged in January 2010 with assaulting Frank and Thomas Luddy with a baseball bat. Albert Gogel pleaded guilty to two counts each of reckless endangerment and simple assault in September 2010 and was sentenced a month later to

18 months probation. Police said they were dispatched to 15th Street and Emerald Court for the report of a male assaulted with a bat. When police arrived, they found Frank Luddy with swelling on his head and unable to open his eyes. Police also spoke with Thomas Luddy, who suffered cuts and swelling to his head. Both men also had back and rib injuries, police said. Frank Luddy said he received a phone call from Albert Gogel, who wanted to settle “an ongoing dispute” between them. Frank Luddy said he thought there was going to be some sort of physical confrontation, so he brought his brother with him. The brothers said that when they arrived at Albert Gogel’s home, they had an argument and Albert Gogel allegedly pepper sprayed Frank Luddy. That’s when, the Luddys said, William Gogel began swinging a bat at them. The Luddys said they were in fear for their lives, and the Gogels fled. Albert Gogel was taken into custody the following day, but William Gogel was not at the residence. He was eventually apprehended by police and formally arraigned on the charges in January.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport officials have called a press conference for 10:30 a.m. today when an announcement regarding a new carrier, Allegiant Air, may be discussed. That airline already operates out of Lehigh Valley Airport near Allentown with flights to Orlando and Tampa and will resume flights to Myrtle Beach in May.

Mains to be upgraded

Pennsylvania American Water Co. has announced upgrades to 11,000 feet of water main in West Side communities. Additionally, six fire hydrants will be replaced. The cost of the system improvements, which replaces water mains dating back to the 1890s, is about $1.8 million. Pennsylvania American broke ground on several projects in early April that will replace existing cast iron water mains with new 8-inch ductileiron pipe. Those projects are: replacing 1,300 feet of existing 4-inch pipe along Grove Street, Edwardsville; replacing more than 2,000 feet of 4-inch main along Oliver Street, Swoyersville; installing 3,500 feet of new 8-inch pipe and replacing existing 4-inch water main along Tripp Street, Forty Fort; replacing 3,000 feet of existing 4-inch pipe along Dana Street, Forty Fort. The company will replace 1,100 feet of existing 2-inch main along Warren Street and South Pioneer Ave. in Trucksville with new 8-inch main. The company expects to complete installation, including transfer of all customer services and final paving restoration, by late June.



Divided county council OKs gas fee By STEVE MOCARSKY

WILKES-BARRE – By a 6-5 vote on Monday, Luzerne County Council adopted an ordinance imposing a stateapproved natural gas impact fee. The controversial ordinance enables the county to assess a fee on unconventional natural gas wells drilled here as allowed for by Act 13, which Gov. Tom Corbett signed into law in February. The fee is designed to allow communities to recoup costs associated with the negative impact of gas drilling on a community’s infrastructure. It’s controversial because Act 13 also strips counties and municipalities of zoning authority over natural gas drill-

ing. Council twice tabled the ordinance in March to allow more time for public comment and information gathering. Counties had until Monday to adopt the fee. But even if it were not adopted, Act 13 provides for the fee to be imposed countywide if at least half the municipalities in a county adopt resolutions supporting it by June 13. Before the vote, Nancy Dolan of Exeter said council had no reason to take action on Monday. “The municipalities should have the right to decide on this impact fee as well as on the future zoning ordinances that they will have to pass in accordance with this impact fee,” Dolan said.

She also noted that Commonwealth Court imposed a 120-day injunction on parts of Act 13 last week to give a group including several municipalities time to argue in a lawsuit that the law unconstitutionally takes away local powers that protect them from potential harm. She warned adopting the fee could preclude the county from fighting for those zoning rights. Dolan said there was no penalty for not adopting the fee, “except for the $22,000 that we’re assured of. … The other moneys are not guaranteed,” she said. Some have estimated Luzerne County could be eligible for almost half a million dollars in state grants to repair

bridges and roads if the fee is adopted. Larry Dellegrotto of Exeter said council was elected to protect the property rights of residents. “This act takes away those rights and puts them in the hands of the gas companies. That’s not fair,” he said. Fred Heller said it bothers him that county council “would take money … for supporting a bad bill. … It’s … a compromise of principle and morality to accept the money. … Do not compromise,” the Wright Township man said. Dave Wasilewski of Hunlock Township said some municipalities spent “substantial money” to fight provisions See IMPACT, Page 12A

Scaling back tribute By STEVE MOCARSKY

FAIRVIEW TWP. – Dan Madry, whose son Brian was killed in a car crash last summer, is downsizing an elaborate roadside memorial at the crash site in consideration of residents of Glen Summit. Between items that Madry, other family members and friends of his son had placed at the memorial, the memorial had grown to a considerable size, with dozens of stones with messages written on them, photos, flowers and a large wooden cross, about 4 feet tall, bearing inscriptions from friends and personal items hung on or attached to it. Madry was comforted by the memorial when he visited it daily, and he hoped its presence could make a difference in the lives of other teenagers and

Madry was cited with defiant trespass after Glen Summit residents saw him chasing his dog on private property near the memorial. A summary trial on the charge was averted on April 4 when an agreement was reached after Madry pledged not to go onto private property in Fairview Township for one year.

Evans,23,gaveexplicitinstructions that the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze should be parked near the Carousel Lounge on Route 11 in Plymouth Township, where Gronosky, 29, allegedly fired two shots at a trooper before fleeEvans ing in the vehicle. Details about how Gronosky took possession of the car are listed in a criminal complaint charging Evans with two counts of hindering apprehension. She remained jailed Monday at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail. Gronosky and Kevin Williams Jr., 29, of Philadelphia, were captured in Montgomery County early Sunday morning when a Montgomery Township police officer spotted the car on state Route 309. The officer learned Gronosky and Williams were considered “armed and dangerous” and watched them go into a convenient store. Police surrounded the store and arrested Williams outside and Gronosky in the restroom. A gun was found in the vehicle, Trooper Martin Connors said. The two men were wanted for their alleged roles in a March 15 armed robbery at the Carousel Lounge in which more than $3,500 was stolen. Gronosky was also wanted on charges he burglarized a trooper’s house in Laflin on March 22 into March 23. Connors said Gronosky will be charged with criminal attempt to commit homicide for allegedly shooting at a trooper outside the Carousel Lounge at about1a.m. Friday. According to the criminal complaint filed against Evans: State police said the vehicle was rented from Avis Rental Co. in Avoca by a woman known to Evans. Evans asked to use the rented car to drive Gronosky out of the area because he was wanted by authorities. Evans paid her friend $500 to use the rented car and gave instructions to her friend to park the car behind the Carousel Lounge on Thursday night. State police said the license plate was replaced on the rented car with one that was stolen in Columbia County. In an unrelated case, Evans is facing a trial on May 7 in Luzerne County Court on charges she assaulted an exotic dancer in the Cabaret Lounge adult night club in Kingston on May 9, 2011. Gronosky and Williams are charged with robbery and theft-related offenses and were jailed at the county prison for lack of $1 million bail each.




SCRANTON — A federal grand jury has issued a new indictment against two of five people who were charged in connection with the armed robbery at the M&T Bank in Hanover Township in 2010. Kareem Shabazz and James A. Russell, no address listed, were first charged in January 2011. Authorities say the men, along with Shaelyn Joy Davis of Wilkes-Barre, barged into the bank carrying several weapons, including a sawed-off shotgun, and made off with $17,808. Davis, of Barney Street, pleaded guilty in August 2011 to bank robbery and carrying a firearm in commission of the robbery. She is scheduled to be sentenced on May 7. Two other persons were charged in connection with the crime. Kirk Robinson, formerly of Wilkes-Barre, is accused of having helped plan the robbery. He fled be-

fore he could be arrested and remains at large, according to court documents. Joseph Swerdon of Luzerne admitted to being the getaway driver. He signed a plea agreement with prosecutors last week that calls for him to plead guilty to bank robbery and conspiracy to use firearms to commit the robbery. According to court papers, Shabazz, Russell and Davis, all of them armed, stormed into the bank at around noon on Oct. 30, 2010. Davis jumped over the counter and demanded money. The trio then ran from the bank and met Swerdon. Shabazz and Russell were initially charged with a three-count indictment on Jan. 3, 2011. They were scheduled for trial on May 1, but a grand jury last week issued a second indictment that adds two additional counts. The new indictment adds a charge of brandishing a firearm during commission of a crime against Shabazz and Russell and a count of burglary against Shabazz for transporting firearms used in the crime from New York to Pennsylvania. It was not clear Monday whether the new indictment will delay the trial.

County judge had tossed drug charges against a New York man after evidence was destroyed. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

The state Superior Court has upheld a county judge’s ruling that dismissed drug charges against a man after it was learned Kingston police had destroyed evidence. The ruling precludes prosecutors from trying Jacquil Atkinson of New York on charges he possessed a quarter-kilo, about one-half pound, of crack cocaine that was found hidden inside a car in which he was a passenger. Atkinson and a second man, Matthew Tighe, were charged in February 2005 after police found drugs in their car following a traffic stop. Atkinson was scheduled to go to trial in July 2011, but Judge Lewis Wet-

zel, who has since left the bench, dismissed the case after prosecutors acknowledged the Kingston Police Department had inadvertently destroyed the drugs. According to court papers, police destroyed the evidence following the conclusion of the case against Tighe, who pleaded guilty to various drug charges in November 2005. Atkinson’s trial had been on hold for several years pending resolution of a separate issue he raised on appeal, which was denied. As the trial neared, his trial attorney, David Lampman of WilkesBarre, filed a motion to dismiss the case, arguing Atkinson’s defense was hampered because he could not have the evidence independently tested. The Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office appealed Wetzel’s ruling to the Superior Court, citing a prior appellate court ruling that

Election board approves Pizano for upcoming primary Tom Pizano said he didn’t seek his last-minute assignment overseeing the April 24 primary election in Luzerne County, but agreed because he believed he could help. “Technologically I am not the best person for the job, but I can help guide the election staff through this election,” Pizano told the county election board Monday. An interim director was needed because county Manager Robert Lawton terminated Leonard Piazza last week. The election board is questioning Lawton’s authority to fire the director under the home rule charter but has put that disagreement aside to concentrate on the upcoming primary. Lawton recommended Pizano, the county’s acting clerk of

POLICE BLOTTER PLAINS TWP. – Township police cited Carl Wayne McMichael, 36, with causing a disturbance in the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino on April 11. Police allege McMichael was intoxicated, yelling and refused to pay a food bill at Johnny Rockets. McMichael was cited with disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and theft. The summary citations were filed Monday with District Judge Diana Malast in Plains Township. HANOVER TWP. – Township police reported the following: • Michael Eastman, of West Saint Mary’s Road, reported Sunday an unknown person forced open a door at his residence and stole a video game system, a television, money and medication. The burglary occurred Saturday into Sunday. • Michael Kelly, of Woodbury Street, reported a video game system was stolen from his residence. Police said the game system was found and seized from the Game Station on Lee Park Avenue.

courts, for the temporary assignment because the former county controller and commissioner was county election director for nearly 12 years until resigning in 1993. Pizano also oversaw the election office with Stephen A. Urban when they were commissioners during then-director Kevin Jordan’s unexpected leave of absence shortly before the November 2001 general election. The election board voted Monday to assign Pizano to run the office. Board Chairman H. Jeremy Packard said a national search for a permanent election director will start immediately after the primary. Pizano briefed the board on election preparations and said the office is receiving assistance from other county departments, the electronic voting machine manufacturer and state election officials.

ed into the voting machines, he said. Informed sources said Piazza’s termination was largely due to his recent decision to audit the campaign finance reports of county Controller Walter Griffith. The controller said Piazza had no authority to conduct the audit and accused him of retaliating for his scrutiny of election office attendance records. Local political consultant Bob Caruso asked the board Monday why Piazza was terminated and whether a review initiated by Griffith is still pending. Board Solicitor Mike Butera advised the board against discussing Piazza and said audits

will be discussed after the election. In other business, Fairview Township resident Fred Heller asked the board to take action over the forced removal of his campaign sign outside a township fire department polling place in the November election. Butera said polling place landlords can specify where signs may be placed on the building, but they must apply the requirement universally and can’t discriminate. Butera said he notified the judge of elections, who inquired about the matter, and will respond to Heller if he receives a complaint from him.

said a defendant must show the destruction of evidence was done in bad faith. In their response to the appeal, Lampman and attorney Robert Butner of Scranton maintained the case had to be dismissed, regardless of whether there was bad faith, because the destruction of the evidence virtually precluded Atkinson from presenting any defense to the charge. The Superior Court agreed. In its ruling, the court noted there was no evidence police intentionally destroyed the evidence. It agreed with Wetzel that the loss of the evidence was crucial to Atkinson’s case, therefore dismissal of the charges was warranted. County District Attorney Stephanie Salavantis said she is discussing the court’s ruling with attorneys in her office and has not yet decided if she will seek to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court.

Congress probes GSA’s Vegas spree


Focus of investigation is $823,000 Las Vegas conference in 2010. Possible bribes, kickbacks eyed. By LARRY MARGASAK Associated Press


President Barack Obama speaks Sunday during a joint news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos during the 6th Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia. WASHINGTON

WASHINGTON — The General Services Administration inspector general said Monday that he’s investigating possible bribery and kickbacks in the agency, as a central figure in a GSA spending scandal asserted his right to remain silent at a congressional hearing. Inspector general Brian Miller, responding to a question at the hearing, said, “We do have other ongoing investigations, including all sorts of improprieties, including bribes, including possible kickbacks.”

Jeffrey Neely, who asserted his Fifth Amendment privilege before the committee, has been placed on leave as a regional executive in Western states. Neely, summoned before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, could face a criminal investigation by the Justice Department — where his case was referred by the inspector general. Neely was largely responsible for an $823,000 Las Vegas conference in 2010 that was the focus of Miller’s report. Three other congressional committees also are looking at the conference spending and a culture of waste at the agency in charge of federal buildings and supplies “Mr. Chairman, on advice of counsel I decline to answer based on my constitutional privilege,” Neely said in response

“We do have other ongoing investigations, including all sorts of improprieties, including bribes, including possible kickbacks.” Brian Miller Inspector general

to questions from chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif. The conference was the subject of a highly critical report by Miller issued on April 2. Taxpayers picked up the tab for a clown, a mind-reader, bicycles for a teambuilding exercise. Martha Johnson, who resigned as chief of the agency after the inspector general’s report was issued this month, said the Western Regions Conference “had evolved into a raucous, extravagant, arrogant, self-congratulatory event.” Johnson, whom lawmakers accused of

sitting on the findings for11months after receiving an interim briefing from the inspector general, apologized “to the American people for the entire situation. “As the head of the agency, I am responsible. I deeply regret that the exceedingly good work of GSA has been besmirched. I will mourn for the rest of my life the loss of my appointment.” Previously, Neely had told inspector general investigators that a $2,700 party he threw in his Las Vegas hotel suite was an employee-awards event, according to a transcript of the interview.

Military brass embarrassed

Attempt at higher tax on wealthy derailed

he top U.S. military officer said Monday the nation’s military leadT ership is embarrassed by allegations of

misconduct against several U.S. military members at a Colombia hotel on the eve of President Barack Obama’s visit over the weekend. “We let the boss down,” Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a news conference. He said he regretted that the scandal, which also involved 11 Secret Service agents accused of cavorting with prostitutes at the hotel, diverted attention from Obama’s diplomacy at a Latin America summit. “I can speak for myself and my fellow chiefs: We’re embarrassed by what occurred in Colombia, though we’re not sure exactly what it is,” Dempsey added. Pentagon officials said earlier Monday that the number of military members involved in the scandal may be greater than the five originally cited.

Confessed killer on trial

Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to killing 77 people in a rampage last July, went on trial Monday in Oslo for Norway’s worst criminal episode since World War II. The 33-year-old right-wing extremist has admitted to slaying 69 young people gathered for an annual Labor Party political camp on the Norwegian island of Utoya on July 22 after killing eight other people by detonating a homemade bomb that destroyed a government building in the center of the Norwegian capital. He gave a brief statement, saying: “I do not recognize the Norwegian courts. ... You have received your mandate from political parties which support multiculturalism.” PHILADELPHIA

3rd recent fatal fire kills 4

Fire tore through a row house early Monday, killing two young children and two adults in the city’s third fatal blaze in a week. The blaze broke out at the two-story home in west Philadelphia shortly before 4:45 a.m., Executive Chief Richard Davison said. A 23-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and a 2-year-old boy, a 4-year-old boy and a 68-year-old man were pronounced dead at a hospital. The fire marshal’s office was investigating. There was no immediate word on the cause of the blaze. Firefighters did not find any smoke detectors. The identities and relationships of the victims were not released. NEW YORK

Alleged terrorist on trial

Three former high school classmates, after getting terror training at an al-Qaida outpost, discussed bombing New York City movie theaters, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square and the New York Stock Exchange before targeting the city’s subways, a prosecutor said Monday at the trial for one of the men. Once back home, Adis Medunjanin and the others formed a sleeper cell of would-be suicide bombers that in 2009 nearly pulled off one of the most chilling terror plots since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, said Assistant U.S. Attorney James Loonam. The men “were prepared to kill themselves and everyone else around them — men, women and children,” Loonam said during opening statements in federal court in Brooklyn. “These men came so close — within days of carrying out this attack.” Defense attorney Robert Gottlieb said: “The truth is that Adis Medunjanin is not a terrorist,” he said. “Mr. Medunjanin never planned to bomb the New York City subways.”


Afghan special forces are seen Monday on top of a building that was occupied by militants in Kabul, Afghanistan. An 18hour Taliban attack on the capital ended when insurgents were overcome by Afghan-led forces and pre-dawn air assaults.

U.S. readies big Afghan offensive The military push may be NATO’s last chance to shore up Kabul’s defenses before a significant withdrawal. By PATRICK QUINN Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan — For Taliban militants and U.S. strategists alike, all roads in this impoverished country of mountain passes, arid deserts and nearly impassable goat tracks lead to this ancient capital of 3 million people nestled in a high and narrow valley. The Taliban made their intentions clear over the weekend, mounting spectacular coordinated attacks that spawned an 18-hour battle with Afghan and NATO forces. And now, the U.S. is gearing up for what may be the last major American-run offensive of the war — a bid to secure the approaches to the city. While bombings and shootings elsewhere in Afghanistan receive relatively little attention, attacks in the capital

alarm the general population, undermine the government’s reputation and frighten foreigners into fleeing the country. That’s why insurgents on Sunday struck locations that were so fortified they could cause little or no damage, including the diplomatic quarter, the parliament and a NATO base. “These are isolated attacks that are done for symbolic purposes, and they have not regained any territory,” U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Monday. The U.S.-led spring offensive, expected to begin in the coming weeks, may be NATO’s last chance to shore up Kabul’s defenses before a significant withdrawal of combat troops limits its options. The focus will be regions that control the main access routes, roads and highways into Kabul from the desert south and the mountainous east. These routes are used not only by militants but by traders carrying goods from Pakistan and Iran. The strategy in eastern Afghanistan involves clearing militants from provinces such as Ghazni, just south of the capital.

The pivotal region links Kabul with the Taliban homeland in the south and provinces bordering Pakistan to the east. NATO, under U.S. command, will also conduct more operations in eastern provinces such as Paktika and Paktia that are considered major infiltration routes to the capital from insurgent safe havens in Pakistan. Meanwhile, Australia expects to pull most of its troops out of Afghanistan nearly a year earlier than planned, the prime minister announced Tuesday, saying Australian soldiers have nearly completed their mission to transfer security responsibilities to Afghan forces in the decade-long war. Prime Minister Julia Gillard cited security improvements and the death of Osama bin Laden and many of al-Qaida’s senior leaders among the reasons behind the accelerated withdrawal, which will likely see most troops home by the end of 2013. But one opposition lawmaker suggested the strategy was an attempt by Gillard to win over war-weary voters ahead of federal elections.

Patriot-News wins Pulitzer for Sandusky

The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Reporter Sara Ganim and members of The Patriot-News of Harrisburg staff won a Pulitzer Prize for local reporting Monday for its coverage of a child sex-abuse scandal at Penn State University that led to criminal charges against two administrators and toppled legendary football coach Joe Paterno. The announcement said the newspaper received the prize “for courageously revealing and adeptly covering the explosive Penn State sex scandal involving former football coach Jerry Sandusky.” The newspaper broke news that a grand jury was investigating Sandusky with a front-page story in March, and was the first to report in November that prose-

cutors were filing child sexual-abuse charges against the former Penn State assistant football coach. Those scoops were followed by a series of reports regarding the Ganim allegations, including stories about the alleged victims and how the matter was handled by Penn State administrators and officials with The Second Mile, a charity founded by Sandusky. The paper’s coverage was led by Ganim, 24, a police and courts reporter who had graduated from Penn State and then worked at the Centre Daily Times before joining the Patriot-News in January 2011.

The Associated Press won a Pulitzer for investigative reporting documenting the New York Police Department’s widespread spying on Muslims, while The Philadelphia Inquirer was honored in the public service category for its examination of violence in the city’s schools. A second Pulitzer for investigative reporting went to The Seattle Times for a series about accidental methadone overdoses among patients with chronic pain. The New York Times won two prizes, for explanatory and international reporting. The Huffington Post received its first Pulitzer, in national reporting, for its look at the challenges facing American veterans wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans derailed a Democratic “Buffett rule” bill Monday forcing the nation’s top earners to pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes, using the day before Americans’ taxes are due to defy President Barack Obama on one of his signature election-year issues. By a near party-line 51-45 tally, senators voted to keep the bill alive but fell nine votes short of the 60 needed to continue debating the measure. The anti-climactic outcome was no surprise to anyone in a vote that was designed more to win over voters and embarrass senators in close races than to push legislation into law. At the White House, Obama denounced the vote, saying Republicans chose “once again to protect tax breaks for the wealthiest few Americans at the expense of the middle class.” In a statement issued after the vote, he said he would keep pressing Congress to help the middle class. “It’s just plain wrong that millions of middle-class Americans pay a higher share of their income in taxes than some millionaires and billionaires,” he said. Republicans called the measure a divisive Democratic distraction from the nation’s real problems that would not address the economy’s real woes. “This legislation will do nothing with regard to job creation, with regard to gas prices, with regard to economic recovery,” said Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the No. 2 Senate GOP leader. Democrats’ goal, he said, was “to try to draw attention away from the issues that the American people are most concerned about.” Sen. Susan Collins of Maine was the only Republican to vote to keep the measure alive, arguing that it was a way to begin considering a badly needed, broad revamping of the entire tax code. The lone defecting Democrat was Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, who said making the rich pay a fair share of taxes should occur as part of an overall tax overhaul, “not as a political ploy meant to score points.” Monday’s vote was the first time a “Buffett rule” proposal has come to a Senate vote this election year. The measure is nicknamed for billionaire Warren Buffett, who has called for higher taxes on the rich.

Cartwright, Holden debate canceled Incumbent U.S. Rep. Holden did not respond to League of Women Voters invitation. By ANDREW M. SEDER

A Wednesday night debate scheduled by the League of Women Voters of Lackawanna County between the Democratic candidates in the 17th Congressional Dis2 0 1 2 trict has been ELECTION canceled because incumbent U.S. Rep. Tim Holden did not respond to an invitation. Challenger Matt Cartwright accepted the league’s invitation to the event that was set for 7 p.m. on the campus of the University of Scranton. “The debate is off,” said Andrea Mulrine, the president of the league chapter.



She notified the Cartwright campaign Sunday of the cancellation citing league rules that “debates can only take place with two or more candidates.” “We don’t do empty-chair debates,” Mulrine said on Monday, and noted that “it is rare the candidate doesn’t respond at all. We generally get a response.” The cancellation means there will no face-to-face debates between the two Democrats before Tuesday’s primary election. Cartwright, a Moosic attorney, invited Holden to hold a debate in each of the six coun-



ties that make up the 17th District. A Holden campaign spokesman said at the time that six was unlikely but one was feasible. Then at an endorsement event last Thursday in WilkesBarre, Holden was asked when a debate with Cartwright would occur and the 10-term congressman said he doesn’t have the time to debate. Citing his job duties plus the rigors of campaigning against a rare primary election opponent, Holden, of St. Clair, Schuylkill County, said he believed news coverage and campaign events gave the public a good idea of where the candidates stand on issues. A message left with Eric Nagy, a Holden campaign spokesman, was not immediately returned Monday. The winner of the primary fight will face Republican Laureen Cummings of Old Forge in November.

Bank robber wore surgical gear, cops say By EDWARD LEWIS

HAZLE TWP. — A man wearing surgical gloves and a surgical mask robbed a branch of PNC Bank on Susquehanna Boulevard on Monday, state police at Hazleton said. Police said a white man entered the bank at about 9:24 a.m. and engaged a teller in a conversation. The man then showed the teller a note demanding money. No weapon was shown. The amount of money taken was not disclosed. The man was seen in a wooded area behind the bank driving a

COURT BRIEFS PLAINS TWP. — Domestic violence charges against Dupont Councilman Brian Nesgoda were dismissed during a preliminary hearing before District Judge Diana Malast on Monday. Dupont police had filed charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and harassment against Nesgoda, 37, on March 11 after his wife, Tracy Nesgoda, alleged he kicked her and knocked her

brown four-door sedan that was parked on Providence Road. The vehicle was last seen traveling south on state Route 309 in Hazleton. State police said the man is about 6 feet tall, with a thin build and brown hair, and wore a white, long-sleeve button-down dress shirt and black dress pants. He wore surgical gloves and a surgical mask with what appeared to be white gauze bandage material on his forehead and a blue bandanna on top of his head. The man was carrying a black briefcase with a shoulder strap. On Nov. 20, two masked men

targeted a woman using an outside ATM at the branch. The men were recorded on surveillance cameras placing barrels and cones directing ATM users to leave their vehicles to conduct transactions. A 61-year-old woman, a manager at a Turkey Hill store, was shot twice by a pellet gun during a robbery of the store’s deposit, state police said. Anyone with information about either robbery is asked to call state police at Hazleton at 4593890.

Hancock Street, faces two counts of endangering the welfare of children. Judge Lesa Gelb scheduled the new trial date Monday at the request of Heller’s attorney, Mark Singer. Heller was charged after police allege she left a 4-yearold girl and a 21-month-old girl unsupervised at the Coal Street Playground on May 24, 2011. Heller drove away and returned five minutes later only to stay inside her car, which was parked 150 feet away from the playground, according to the complaint.

He was an avid fan of the NASCAR circuit and faithful follower of Dale Jr. and a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers Football. Taken from this world far too soon, Troy will be remembered by those who knew and loved him as a good spirited, humorous and care-

free soul who possessed a heart of gold. He was fiercely devoted to his children and although they are young, his love for them has left an indelible mark, and thus, his presence will live on through them and the lives they create for themselves.

One project that began Monday took place in the Shickshinny home of Janet Krzywicki. Krzywicki had nearly 8 feet of Susquehanna River water in the first floor, and once the waters receded she returned home to find most of her flooring and belongings badly damaged. Krzywicki said a contractor was hired to make repairs but never returned to finish the job. That left the mother of two searching for someone who could help. A Federal Emergency Management Agency representative told her about UMCOR, and the relief work it does for those affected by disasters. “It’s a blessing to have them here,” Krzywicki said. Volunteers began the renovation by installing carpeting in the living room and stairwell area. Coordinated through UMCOR, Todd Harper was one of the volunteers that made the journey to Northeastern Pennsylvania to begin repairs. Harper has a full-time job, a

“I didn’t realize that people who live there were unhappy with a large memorial at the crash site. You see, when you lose a child, you don’t see anything but your own pain,” Madry said. “I just woke up one day a couple days ago and thought, ‘Maybe I need to be a little more open.’ It was one-sided of me not to think about other people. I didn’t really think about anyone else and didn’t care about how they feel,” he said. Madry also said he came to realize that Police Chief Joe Intelicado and officer Phillip Holbrook were only “trying to keep the peace, and I only thought of

wife and two children in his hometown of Lansdale, Montgomery County, but he knew there was a significant need for help here. “I thought about it and said ‘There’s definitely a calling here,’ ” Harper said. Douglas Sivers, northeast coordinator for the Susquehanna Conference of United Methodist Churches, said that through the work of volunteers, things are beginning to look brighter for flood victims. “People can begin to see the end in sight,” Sivers said. Project coordinator Garry Van Scoy said the visiting volunteer groups are committed to the area until September, with additional projects in West Pittston slated to begin in late April.

Madry said he hopes readers treat the women who reported him to police with respect. “I have no hard feelings and know we are all God’s children,” he said. Madry still believes landowners should have done more to keep an eye on the lake and report to police if teenagers were partying there, and he believes more can still be done. He suggests installing video cameras for a couple hundred dollars and some spotlights around the property, and he would be happy to work with Glen Summit residents to make that happen.

He erected a new, smaller cross and left a couple photos and one bouquet of artificial flowers. Madry said his sons were upset that he removed the large cross. “They don’t see things from an adult perspective. It started not looking too good

and, in my eyes, it wasn’t respectful to keep it here,” Madry said. He plans on removing much of the remaining items from the site when a slate plaque that a friend is making in honor of Brian is complete, and placing the plaque there in perpetuity. “I know where he died and where his soul left,” Madry said. “Do I want something gigantic that takes up a city block? I don’t think so.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Never before and never again will a space shuttle move through a major urban area.” Jeffrey N.

The awful load of the evil code


H LORD, IT’S that time of year. You stare at the words on the form. “Short-term gain from Form 6252 and shortterm gain or (loss) from Forms 4684, 6781, and 8824.” ... And you think, somewhere the world is at peace and people gaze from a beach as the sun dips below the horizon and no one is taken hostage, ever, by the most diabolical tax code on the face of the planet. Seventy-five years ago, the instruction booklet for Form1040 was two pages. Today it’s nearly 200. The tax code in all its malignant glory is nearly 4 million words. No one fully understands what those words mean. Ninety percent of individual taxpayers have given up trying to decrypt the code’s Delphic language. They hire somebody else to do it, or try. This year, individual taxpayers and businesses will spend more than 7 billion hours as tax-code hostages. Imagine the load that


would be lifted from the economy if that burden could be cut, say, in half. Our lawgivers make a pretense of feeling our pain. Then they go back to Washington, where lobbyists make them feel their pain, and the lawmakers obediently spray more loopholes and exclusions into the code. Since 1986, when many deductions were wiped out and the top rate dropped to 28 percent, there have been 15,000 changes. The late U.S. Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan put his finger on the problem. Thanks to our basic political dynamic, when rates go up, loopholes flow in, almost like a “hydraulic phenomenon.” The obvious compromise, if you want a simpler code, is to lower the rates and carve out the loopholes – exactly what President Barack Obama’s bipartisan deficit commission suggested more than a year ago.

Reader warns against exotic animals as pets


his letter is going to touch on a couple of concerns of which people need to be aware. Maybe knowledge and solutions can come from it to help ensure the lives of all living creatures. First, shame on all of you who take wildlife from natural habitats and bring them here for your own selfish reasons, one being “empty nest syndrome.” There are enough children out there who need parents, foster parents, etc. Yet you choose to raise monkeys, such as “macaques” no less, and dangerous ones at that. Shame on you, Mr. Jeffrey Arnott; I’m an animal lover, too, but my concerns are to reach out to those that are abused and abandoned. I feel you need to learn the great harm you potentially are doing. May I suggest looking up people such as wildlife conservationist Lane DroscherNielsen, project manager for Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Reintroduction Project, or Phil Cronje at Chimp Eden Sanctuary in Mpumalanga, Africa? Learn how to help, not hurt. People, please! I’m begging you. If you want a pet family, there are plenty of unwanted animals at your local SPCA. For a minimum fee you can have a life of love!

Writer: ‘All is not well’ in Pennsylvania courts


or the last 22 years I basically have been screaming from the rooftops that judicial corruption is not only real, but also prevalent in the Pennsylvania courts. Until a person is thrust into the court system, one has no basis to conclude the courts are anything but fair and honest. That is exactly how I felt until I experienced my own rude awakening in the 1990s. I was chastised by the then-president judge of Luzerne County for even hinting there might be a problem in the courts. His quote: “How dare you question the integrity of this court?” Three Luzerne county judges are in federal prison on public corruption charges, and that includes the son of the president judge who admonished me. The question is no longer “Is there corruption in the Pennsylvania judicial system?” Rather it’s this:“How extensive is this corruption?” In the case of Luzerne County, the judicial corruption addressed by the federal indictments of these three judges halted corruption that flourished for years unabated. For the most part, the judges’ illegal activity was properly reported to the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Neither oversight organization fulfilled its requirements to intervene. Rather, both organizations seemingly

rejected legitimate, provable information of misconduct that was provided to them. Was this incompetence or culpability? Apparently we will never know the answer to this question, as neither organization is talking and no one is demanding that they do so. It also appears that the JCB went so far as to successfully attack a “whistleblower” – in violation of its own rules and procedures. Window dressing legislation has become the order of the day instead of hard-core reform and accountability. It appears that not a single Pennsylvania legislator has the spine or fortitude to take on the toughest issues concerning fairness under the law. Corruption in the judiciary affects everyone, whether or not you are ever involved in litigation. Our entire society is based on fairness and unbiased adjudication under the law. Examples of judicial corruption go unchallenged every year. Our courts’ moral compass is askew, and our leaders are intoxicated on power and money while steering us onto the rocks, all the while telling us, “All is well.” All is not well. The very private club informally known as the “black robe society” must be held accountable by the citizens who pay the bills and not by the aspiring individuals who someday hope to become members.

Disabled patient finds poor access to building


everal months ago I became disabled due to a severe leg injury. In the course of my treatment I was required to see a doctor at the Center for Same Day Surgery, Wilkes-Barre. I visited this building three times, and three times I had trouble accessing the building because of delivery trucks or other vehicles blocking the front door that has a handicapped access area. The drivers of these vehicles were indifferent or rude when told about this problem. There are signs that read “no parking,” but nothing is marked on the pavement. I alerted some employees, but apparently no action was immediately taken. I guess it’s going to take an accident and subsequent lawsuit to remedy this problem.

Senior alerts residents to harmful phone scams


am a proud U.S. citizen, ex-military, family guy, community-minded and active church person. You name it, and I’ve probably been there. I will be 82 years old this month. Please do not be deceived by a phone scam, as I almost was. They prey on your most precious possessions, which are your family members. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. We deeply love all of them. We, and our precious oldest grandson, were targeted in this scam. I won’t go into details, but for 4½ hours recently we almost succumbed. We are about $2,000 more to the good. Believe me, folks, the scam is extremely believable. They almost had us! We are old, not master’s degree educated, but we are not ignorant to facts. So please don’t be dumb and yield to their demands. No matter how realistic the calls might be, and no matter how much your heart palpitates, do not send money. We did not, and we are so thankful for that. A special thank-you goes to our friends and family members who helped us through this ordeal. They know who they are, and God bless you. Robert “Bobby” Baird Musician Shavertown

Rotary leadership camp helped soldier to excel


mong the many excellent endeavors of the Rotary Club are its leadership camps. Hundreds of the finest young people have attended. I worked with our brightest young people at these camps. A father of one of our campers, Mr. Hitzner, recently approached me and mentioned his son is in our armed forces and attained the rank of captain. He recently took the exam for Green Berets and out of almost 200 applicants came in second. Now Michael Hitzner is a Green Beret. The father thanked me for all that his son learned at the Rotary camp. He was able to put this into use in the service of our country. Frank Mrufchinski Nanticoke

ry Ann King at first opposed the idea, but later voted to pursue the Requests for Qualifications. The RFQ is near completion and will be announced after the next authority meeting. Mayor Tom Leighton revealed last week his plan to look into leasing the city’s 2,113 garage spaces, 160 surface lot spaces and 800 parking WHAT’S meters. The NEXT city operates the InThe Wilkes-Barre termodal City Parking Authority will meet Center and April 26, at noon the parking at the Park and meters; the Lock North garage authority office, North Main operates the Street. Park & Lock garages and all surface lots. He said the city is seeking “a minimum” of $20 million up front and retention of the enforcement revenue from the parking meters. Katarsky said he and other authority members are looking for a higher price. “I don’t think we will pursue this if the numbers aren’t there,” Katarsky said. “I don’t think $20 million is enough up front. We’ll see what offers we get and see what happens from there.” “If we don’t get the right offer, we can nip this whole thing in the bud,” he said. Drew McLaughlin, the city’s administrative coordinator, said the city’s financial consultants originally proposed a possible lease of parking assets in 2004 as one of many revenue options for the city’s financial recovery. Leighton said the city was faced with a $10 million deficit when he assumed office in 2004 and the city had lost its credit rating. “It was not pursued at the time because the downtown parking assets were not at optimum value largely due to the state of the downtown business district,” McLaughlin said. Economic improvement McLaughlin said the fiscal and economic portrait of the city has improved, making the parking spaces more valuable. He cited construction of the Intermodal Transportation Center and new lighting and sidewalk improvements downtown as key ingredients in making Wilkes-Barre an attractive investment opportunity. “The city will be seeking bids on a lease of the assets from a position of strength and only if a good deal for the people of Wilkes-Barre materializes will a lease agreement be executed,” McLaughlin said. “This is the right time to pursue this initiative.” So far the authority has paid Fox Rothschild around $83,000, according to its consultant Alan Wohlstetter. J.J. Murphy has been retained by Fox Rothschild, not the Parking Authority directly. Since 2010, Wohlstetter and Fox Rothschild have donated between $5,000 and $6,000 to Leighton’s campaigns, according to the mayor’s campaign finance reports. Project’s timing McLaughlin said the RFQ responses are to be submitted by May 15 and qualified bidders will be identified by June 5. He said a due-diligence process will take place in June and July, with bid proposals due by July 31. Final and binding proposals would be due by Aug.15 and selection of a vendor by the end of November. According to parking authority minutes, Leighton came to the authority in December to pitch the idea of leasing the parking assets. Murphy attended the March 20 meeting and reported on the RFQ process. He also recommended Desman Associated, a Chicago-based nationally known parking consultant that will analyze all proposals, and he set the minimum bid at $25 million. Whatever amount the city accepts on the upfront payment, $7 million of it will be used to retire the remaining debt on the Intermodal Transportation Center, Leighton said. On the bill from Goals Consulting, Murphy’s firm, charges range from .2 hrs (12 minutes, or $60) to seven hours, or $2,100. The bill references city officials by first name and in the case of Leighton “TML.”






Nuangola woman cites water woes By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA – Maureen Keiner of Ridge Street returned to borough council on Monday night to complain about water intruding upon her property. Only this time she blamed Rice Township and the Laurel Lakes Association. Keiner told council an inspection by David Allen of the Pennsylvania Game Commission showed the fault lies with an illegal blockage of a runoff area of Laurel Lakes that was executed recently to raise the level of the lake. As a result of this action, Keiner said, part of her land has become what she described as a swampy, odorous mess. She told council Allen did the inspection after DEP alleged a beaver dam at the spillway between Lake Nuangola and Laurel Lakes caused the lake level to rise. Keiner said Allen assured her beavers were not at fault. Rather a runoff stream in Laurel

of Act13. He questioned if the state could deny the county Act 13 funding if the county didn’t persuade those municipalities to comply with the act. Sam Troy of Wilkes-Barre said “municipalities should retain some control” over zoning. “The short-term gain … to me is nothing compared to the long-term detrimental effects.” The only resident to speak in favor of a positive vote was Fred Murray of Jackson Township. He said council needed “to have the vision to think ahead” because, although two wells drilled in the county did not produce marketable amounts of natural gas, “Utica oil could be right un-

Lakes had been sandbagged to raise the level of that lake. Laurel Lakes is situated in Rice Township. Regina Plodwick, council chairwoman, advised Keiner to talk to Rice officials. Also, Plodwick said she has mailed a threepage letter to state Sen. Lisa Baker about the problem. Because there is also the threat of mosquito infestation this summer, Councilman Ted Vancosky told Keiner he has been in touch with an independent agency to conduct tests for West Nile Virus. Keiner also raised the issue of the overall integrity of Lake Nuangola being in danger. In other business: • Plodwick said information from the Federal Emergency Management Agency indicates the borough is in line to receive $12,213 in FEMA funds for damage caused by the flood of 2011.

• Vancosky was criticized about the newly installed electronic security system at the municipal building. Councilman Joe Tucker contended surveillance cameras were installed at locations other than what were approved at the March meeting. Councilwoman Elaine Donahue supported Tucker in this argument. Sally DiRico, secretary of the Nuangola Sewer Authority, questioned Vancosky about oversight of the system. Vancosky, because he arranged for the purchase and installation of two cameras, conceded he primarily was responsible for reviewing data from the recording system and for the location of the cameras. Tucker contended an individual independent from council should have oversight. There was no resolution to the security system issues. Tucker and Donahue objected to a proposal by Vancosky that additional cameras could be purchased.

der our land out here. … This place needs Act 13.” Voting for the ordinance were Linda Houck, Eugene Kelleher, Tim McGinley, Rick Williams and Chairman Jim Bobeck; voting against were Elaine Curry, Harry Haas, Rick Morelli, Stephen A. Urban and Stephen J. Urban. Several council members explained their reasoning. Morelli said opponents made a strong case and helped him decide to oppose the ordinance. Kelleher noted a section of the ordinance states that its adoption does not limit the county’s right to challenge the validity of provisions of Act 13. Williams asked solicitor Dave Schwager if adopting the ordinance could compromise council’s ability to challenge provisions of Act 13.

Schwager said it was a possibility. Stephen A. Urban said he would vote no because council does not have the authority “to usurp the local authority of local zoning and planning boards.” Kelleher said council was voting on impact fees, not on Act 13. “If this comes in at what two state legislators have said, at $760,000, that money I think is due the local taxpayers, and I will vote yes.” Curry said legislation “needs to be fair” and Act 13 “is a gift to the gas drillers and I can’t support it.” Houck said the “real gift” would be failing to adopt an impact fee. Bobeck said the county could see infrastructure problems related to gas drilling in the future and “to not have anything down the road for problems would be short-sighted.”

FUNDS Continued from Page 1A

Barletta’s quarterly total was the second lowest of any incumbent congressman in the state facing a primary or general election opponent. Only U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Philadelphia, reported less money raised. But he’s in a strong Democratic district with no serious competition. The only Republican on the ballot in that district, Robert Mansfield, reported $6,910 raised this year. Barletta’s contributions last quarter included $76,684 from individual donors and $48,025 from political action committees. Among the notable PAC money Barletta received was $2,000 from the Exxon Mobil Corp. PAC; $1,000 from the Halliburton Co. PAC; $1,000 from Koch Industries PAC; $1,000 from the Occidental Petroleum Corp. PAC; and $500 from the U.S. Immigration Reform PAC. Vinsko’s committee raised $12,824 from individuals this year and $15,000 combined from a pair of political action committees. The Ironworkers Political Action League Multi Candidate Committee gave him $10,000 and the UA Political Education Committee gave him $5,000. That PAC represents journeymen and apprentices of the plumbing and pipefitting industry. Stilp reported no money raised from PACs. His largest donation was $2,500 from New York attorney Jay Halfon. “I didn’t expect to raise this much,” said Stilp. “It’s been a very short campaign.” He said he’s proud that he’s run a clean, fair campaign without negative attack ads and hopes it resonates with voters. Vinsko said he wanted to raise just enough money to get his message out for the primary and will ratchet up fundraising efforts if he’s successful in the primary. “I’m focused on meeting the voters,” he said.

percent to 43 percent -- most political observers feel the former Hazleton mayor is now in a better position to win re-election in November. Before Vinsko can take on Barletta, he must defeat Gene Stilp in the April 24 primary. Stilp, an activist best known for bringing an inflatable pink pig to protest government wasteful spending and fraud, lives in Dauphin County, at the southern section of the new 11th District. “The RNC knew we could raise money and win this seat,” Vinsko said during a meeting with editors and reporters at The Times Leader. “This was the most egregious case of redistricting.

night shifts a month interspersed with day or evening hours — raises the risk, too, says a recent report from researchers who analyzed years of medical records from the huge Nurses’ Health Study. Diet and physical activity are big factors in Type 2 diabetes. Certainly it’s harder to work out or choose an apple over a doughnut when you’re tired, especially at 3 a.m. when your body’s internal clock knows you should be sleeping. But a study published last week shows sleep plays a more complex role than that. As sleep drops and normal biological rhythms are disrupted, your

will say we can’t win, but obviously we feel differently. “I believe I’m the only candidate that can defeat Lou Barletta,” he said. Assistant city solicitor Vinsko, the assistant city attorney in Wilkes-Barre, said he plans to move into the11th District, but he didn’t say when. He said he decided to run for Congress because he loves government and likes to write legislation. “If you’re going to run for office, run for the job you want to do,” he said. “This is a job I really want to do.” Vinsko said he is frustrated watching Congress “do nothing.” He said the key is to be able to negotiate and compromise across the political aisle to effect meaningful legislation. He noted the

body physically changes in ways that can help set the stage for diabetes, reports neuroscientist Orfeu Buxton of Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Buxton’s team had 21 healthy volunteers spend almost six weeks living in a laboratory where their diet, physical activity, sleep and even the light was strictly controlled. The volunteers started out well-rested. But for three of those weeks, they were allowed only about 51⁄2 hours of sleep every 24 hours — at varying times of the day or night, to mimic a bad shift rotation or prolonged jet lag. That knocked out of whack the body’s “circadian rhythm,” a master biological clock. What happened was startling: Blood sugar levels increased after meals, sometimes to pre-dia-

current approval rating of members of Congress is in the 10 percent to 12 percent range. “That tells you we need a change in Congress,” Vinsko said. “Last year, there were just 95 bills passed. That’s just not enough.” Vinsko said he is outside the district for the same reason 65 percent of it is now in the 11th – political gerrymandering. “Issues do not stop at district boundary lines,” he said. Vinsko said he will vote to ensure Social Security and Medicare are not taken from senior citizens. He said Barletta, R-Hazleton, can’t vote for U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget plan and say he’s protecting Social Security and Medicare. He said he would look at the Affordable Care Act and extract the good aspects of it and build on those. Vinsko said constituency ser-

betic levels, because the pancreas stopped secreting enough insulin, Buxton reported in the journal Science Translational Medicine. At the same time, the volunteers’ metabolic rate slowed by 8 percent. The researchers had them on a diet so they didn’t gain weight — but Buxton says typically, a metabolism drop of that size could mean gaining 10 to 12 pounds over a year. The results make sense, says Dr. Michael Thorpy, sleep center director at New York’s Montefiore Medical Center and a neurology professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. “If we’re going to spend a third of our day sleeping, there’s got to be a good reason for it,” says Thorpy, who notes that diabetes is far from the only worry.

vice would be a top priority. He pointed to the aftermath of last year’s flooding and noted the city was far ahead of other municipalities in getting help for its citizens. Pro-life stance Vinsko, a Roman Catholic, is pro-life. “I will never check my Catholic values at the door,” he said. “I’m a pro-life Democrat who will protect children.” Vinsko said the U.S. must stand up for Israel, and he is concerned about Iran’s intent to have nuclear weaponry. “We must be careful so we don’t get into major conflicts that we can’t afford,” Vinsko said. “But we can’t allow Iran to possess nuclear weapons.” Vinsko said he plans to raise and spend about $150,000 in the

primary. If he wins the nomination, he said, he will have to raise much more to run a competitive campaign in the fall against Barletta. Vinsko also supports campaign finance reform, calling the current system “crazy.” He said that 30 years ago there were eight or nine candidates in the 11th District. “Now there are three,” he said. “The cost to run a campaign is excessive. We have to find a way to level the playing field.” Vinsko favors lowering the national debt, proper use of earmarks, protecting the environment, forgiveness of a percentage of student loans, alternative energy development and taxing the Marcellus Shale natural gas industry. “We must be fiscally smart,” he said.

Break-ins few, Lehman chief says Lehman Twp. resident speaks at supervisors session. By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

LEHMAN TWP.-- Addressing a resident’s concern about recent burglaries in the area, Police Chief Howard Kocher said during Monday’s Board of Supervisors meeting that only two breakins occurred in the township in recent weeks. “We really haven’t had many burglaries,” he said, adding that a vacant home and a hunting cabin were burglarized. “We’ve been pretty lucky.” In other business, the board announced the township was reimbursed $74,371 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency

for work done by the road department to repair damage caused by Tropical Storm Lee in September. Reimbursement of $60,000 for damage caused by Hurricane Irene in August should also be received soon, the board added. The township also recently received reimbursement of $54,646 from Encana Oil and Gas for damage to the roads caused by its trucks. The board passed a revised ordinance regarding a waste water pre-treatment agreement with the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority. The new ordinance addresses the latest EPA requirements and is in accordance with the Federal Clean Water Act and the Pennsylvania Clean Streams Law.

Hagelin served the first of a three-game NHL suspension for the hit. Bobby Butler replaced Alfredsson. Chris Kreider, who nine days earlier won the NCAA championship with Boston College, made his NHL debut in place of Hagelin.

The Senators dominated play early in the third period, forcing Lundqvist to make a number of saves. But it was the Rangers who scored the only goal of the game.

f head coach Dan Bylsma really doesn’t want his Pittsburgh Penguins getting down and dirty, he should try talking to his star. Because if Sidney Crosby doesn’t get a grip on himself soon, the Penguins are going to lose their season. They’ve already lost control of a first-round playoff series with the rival Philadelphia Flyers. But instead of fighting to get back in it, the Penguins fought with their fists. When they weren’t turning Sunday’s Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals into an all-out brawl, they were transforming the game into a rugby scrum. And most of it started with Crosby. “You know, there’s more than one team getting in those things,â€? Crosby said. But only one guy seemed intent on instigating such shenanigans. Right from the start of Philadelphia’s 8-4 victory in Game 3, Crosby seemed determined to put up his dukes. He shoved a glove in the face of Flyers scoring star Claude Giroux, causing a scuffle between the two. Moments later, Crosby incited another fight when he knocked a glove from the hand of Flyers winger Jacob Voracek, then poked the glove away just as Voracek leaned down to pick it up. “I don’t like any guy on their team, so ‌,â€? Crosby said. “It was near me and he went to pick it up and I pushed it. Guys are emotional and there is a lot of stuff going on out there.â€? It was a punk move. “There is no reason to explain,â€? Crosby said. “I don’t have to sit here and explain why I pushed a glove away. They are doing a lot of things out there, too. You know what, we don’t like each other. Was I going to sit there and pick up his glove? What was I supposed to do?â€? He could have tried pushing pucks into the net instead of pushing a fallen glove across the ice. Because Crosby’s best retaliation for any perceived slight would have been beating the Flyers and pulling the Penguins back into the series. Crosby didn’t do it. Instead of answering back with shots and scores, Crosby fired at the Flyers with his fists and more than a few foul words. Guess what? The Flyers loved it. “You don’t see Sidney Crosby fighting, basically at all,â€? said Flyers winger Scott Hartnell said. “He’s doing that kind of stuff, he’s off his game. “Crosby started about every scrum.â€? There were plenty of those Sunday as the teams combined for 148 penalty minutes, including 10-minute misconduct penalties on Penguins Kris Letang, former WBS Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland, James Neal and Craig Adams, a match penalty on Arron Asham and a five-minute fighting major on Crosby. That’s not exactly the type of poise Bylsma’s been preaching, with his Penguins now down 3-0 in the series and on the brink of getting swept Wednesday. “That’s an area of the game we want to stay away from,â€? Bylsma said. “We don’t want to be involved in those situations against this team. We want to stay whistle to whistle and minimize the amount of penalties in the game and not create those scenarios.â€? He might want to let his star scorer in on that gameplan. “Skate away?â€? Crosby asked incredulously when it was suggested he could have done so. At least partly because he and the Penguins didn’t, their season’s now skating away.

Marlins’ Guillen returns from suspension today By STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — Miami Marlins broadcaster Cookie Rojas is a baseball lifer who has seen Ozzie Guillen backpedal before from outlandish statements that provoked outrage. Last week’s emotional apology by Guillen was different, Rojas says. “I’ll tell you something about Ozzie,” Rojas says. “As long as I’ve known him, he never before felt sorry saying, ‘Please forgive me.’ This is the first time really that he had to admit he was wrong and made a mistake. “Let’s get over with it and play

ball.” While the Havana-born Rojas is ready to move on, other Cuban Americans may not be. The exGuillen tent of lingering acrimony toward Guillen can be gauged today, when the Marlins manager returns from a fivegame suspension. The team imposed the punishment after comments by Guillen praising Fidel Castro angered South Florida’s Cuban exiles, who happen to make up a large chunk of the Marlins’ fan base.

The team’s new ballpark is located in a neighborhood near downtown known as Little Havana. The Marlins will be braced for possible group protests today, but there were none over the weekend, when the team played at home for the first time since the furor began. Some furious fans pledged to stay away, but announced attendance still exceeded 30,000 for all three games. Guillen has a history of profane, polarizing comments on myriad subjects, but nothing he said previously triggered such a backlash. Rojas, a former major league player who has known Guillen for more than 20 years,

predicted the wrath of those offended by the comments about Castro will subside. “I hope they realize this is done with,” Rojas said. “He asked people to forgive him.” A shaken Guillen repeatedly apologized at a news conference last week, while about 100 people protested on the ballpark plaza and demanded his dismissal. Instead, only five games into his tenure with the Marlins, Guillen began a suspension. Coincidentally, the former Chicago White Sox manager will return for a series against the Chicago Cubs, making their lone visit of the year to Miami. With

Gee and Davis lead Mets over Braves The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Ike Davis hit a tiebreaking three-run homer and Dillon Gee pitched four-hit ball over seven innings, leading the New York Mets to another victory over the Atlanta Braves, 6-1 Monday night. The Mets snapped Atlanta’s five-game winning streak and added to their three-game sweep of the Braves in New York to start the season. With the game tied at 1 in the sixth, Atlanta intentionally walked hot-hitting David Wright with two outs to get to Davis, who was batting just .118. The strategy backfired when Tommy Hanson (1-2) hung a 2-2 pitch and Davis drove it into the right-field seats. Gee (1-1) was never in much trouble. Atlanta put together a couple of hits and a walk in the second, leading to

its only run on Jack Wilson’s RBI groundout. Nationals 6, Astros 3

WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg pitched six innings for his second win of the season, to lead the Washington Nationals to a victory over the Houston Astros. Strasburg looked nearly unhittable for five innings, allowing just three singles, but the Astros got to him in the sixth for two runs and three hits. Padres 7, Rockies 1

DENVER — Cory Luebke threw seven efficient innings and Chase Headley tied a team record with three doubles, helping the San Diego Padres snap a four-game skid with a victory over the Colorado Rockies.


Tampa Bay victory is Maddon’s 500th win The Associated Press

BOSTON — James Shields allowed four hits in 8 1-3 innings, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 1-0 Monday to avoid a four-game sweep. Joe Maddon got his 500th win as a manager, all with Tampa Bay, as the Rays stopped a four-game losing streak. The only run came when Daniel Bard (0-2) walked Evan Longoria on four pitches with the bases loaded in the seventh. Shields (2-0) led the majors with 11 complete games last year and had a chance for another until he walked Dustin Pedroia with one out in the ninth. Fernando Rodney retired the next two batters for his fourth save in four chances. Shields gave up four singles and two walks while striking out five as the Rays finally shut down the team that had outscored them 31-11 in the previous three games. Only one Boston runner got past first base. The loss was Bobby Valentine’s first at Fenway Park as Boston’s manager. Fans booed when he went back to the dugout after lifting Bard for Justin Thomas following the run-scoring walk.

the Marlins off to a disappointing 4-6 start, his players are eager to get Guillen back. “He couldn’t sleep for days because of this,” said first baseman Gaby Sanchez, whose parents are Cuban exiles. “It stinks, because he is a good person.” Hall of Famer Tony Perez, a Marlins executive and native of Cuba, said Guillen’s news conference helped soothe wounded feelings. But he said some Cuban Americans remain upset because they considered the suspension insufficient punishment. “People want to get Ozzie fired,” Perez said. “A lot of peo-

Twins 7, Yankees 3

NEW YORK — Carl Pavano quieted an unfriendly Yankee Stadium crowd with seven solid innings, Justin Morneau played in the field for the first time this season and hit a long homer, and Minnesota earned a rare victory in New York. Joe Mauer had three hits, including two doubles, and every position player had a hit in a tweaked Minnesota lineup. Josh Willingham batted fourth for the first time this season and was one of seven Twins to drive in a run. Minnesota won for just the sixth time in 34 regular-season games in the Bronx since Ron Gardenhire took over as manager in 2002. Tigers 3, Royals 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Justin Verlander beat Kansas City once again, surviving a shaky ninth inning Monday night to deliver the Detroit Tigers a victory over the Royals. Orioles 10, White Sox 4

CHICAGO — Matt Wieters homered twice, including a 10th-inning grand slam, lifting the Baltimore Orioles to a come-from-behind win over the Chicago White Sox.

ple think five days is not enough. “Everybody knows he did wrong. That’s why he tried to apologize to the people face to face. I think that’s one thing in his favor. He didn’t hide. He came and faced everybody. That was a good move. “A lot of people believe him. A lot of people don’t, and I don’t blame them, because a lot of people here have been hurt by Castro for more than 50 years. When something like that comes up, with the new stadium opening right here in Little Havana, that’s something people don’t forget. We have to live with that and see if people will forget.”

Chipper is amused at Mets’ plans for honors Team says it will find way commemorate long-time nemesis’ retirement. By DAVID LENNON Newsday

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones said earlier this month at Citi Field that he is probably the most hated villain in New York, next to former teammate John Rocker. A better comparison, based on what he’s done on the field, is the NBA’s Reggie Miller, who tormented Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden much as Jones did Mets fans at Shea Stadium. “That would be pretty good,” Jones said. “I didn’t have an argument with Spike Lee throughout the years. I didn’t see Spike at too many games.” The whole idea of being honored at Citi Field later this season was amusing to Jones when he was told of the Mets’ plan Monday. A Mets official said that the team would indeed acknowledge Jones — he is retiring after this season, his 19th with the Braves — but in an appropriate manner and assuredly not with any on-field ceremony. Terry Collins believes it still is the right thing to do. “I remember years ago, (hockey player) Gordie Howe one time said when they’re booing you, they know who you are,” he said. “Everybody knows who Chipper Jones is and we will certainly do something to honor him being a great player — not just because he beats up the Mets.” When asked how the Mets should bid him adieu, Jones smiled and said: “It might be a recording of all my plate appearances where they announce my name and the chorus of boos rained down. I don’t know. Like I said, I’m not expecting anything. But anything would be appreciated.” Jones did recount his most famous run-in with the Shea fans during the 1999 season, when he noticed a fan behind the dugout with a shirt that was split with Mets and Yankees logos. He thought the Braves were in the process of knocking the Mets out of the playoffs — instead they forced a one-game playoff and beat the Cincinnati Reds. “I told him, ’Now all the Mets fans can go home and put their Yankees’ stuff on’ — not knowing what a firestorm that would light up. Then we end up facing them in the (league championship series). So that one almost really came back to bite me. It taught me a valuable lesson. To keep my mouth shut.”

did a good job with Lehman today and we’re looking forward to our match against Crestwood on Wednesday.” Wednesday’s victor will be one of two undefeated teams left in the conference, joining North Pocono (4-0). Redeemer hosts the Trojans on May 3, while North Pocono travels to Crestwood on May 16. In a tight league in 2012, Tunkhannock only has one loss. “I would say there is seven teams right now that could on any given night beat each other,” Royals coach Jack Kablick said. “The league has so much parity this year and I think it’s great.” On Monday, the Royals – returning from an 11-day Easter

break – were rusty in the first game as the Black Knights were close to handing Redeemer its first individual game loss of the season, holding a 16-15 lead. But Redeemer overcame 10 total errors in the stanza to take the lead. Four different players from Redeemer – Mike Vamos, Jeremy Myslowski, Brenden Leahigh and Wingert – all produced kills from that point in the game to push the score in their team’s favor and out of reach. Mike Prociak notched 11 kills and three blocks for Redeemer overall, while Myslowski totaled nine kills, 19 assists and seven service points. Leahigh notched seven kills in the match. Dylan Myslowski added 14 points. “Last year when we had the 611 guy (Pete Alexis) we could tell the other team who was getting the set,” Kablick noted. “But now we have Brenden Lea-

I was pretty impressed. I hope we’ve got something here.” The Spartans got on the board with a pair of runs in the fourth to stave off the mercy rule, then scored four runs in the fifth inning to make it 10-6 behind back-to-back run-scoring doubles off the bats of Karlee Kioske and Kymber Letteer. “We’re much better than we showed today,” Hooper said. “We had all one-run games until Berwick. It’s just been all downhill from there. But we’re coming off an 11-1 win over Northwest on Friday. Then we lose today 16-6.” Pittston Area settled down from there, as PETE G.

Several times, Redeemer players were going for a kill, but a Lehman defender was on his knees to save the point and get a dig. The Black Knights opened a 1-0 lead in the second and third game, but those leads both times quickly dissipated and the Royals never looked back, only totaling eight errors in the last two games combined. Kevin Masters contributed five kills and three blocks for the Black Knights, while Scott Judson had three kills and five blocks. “I thought Lehman played pretty well, but we just kind of wear people down,” Kablick added. “We have so many hitters coming from so many angles and after a while you just get tired of it.”

At 11:00, Ruslan Fedotenko’s shot hit the post, but the rebound trickled across the goal line as Anderson and forward Jason Spezza dove to smother it.

Sweeney’s hard work paying off

Chris Sweeney hasn’t become one of the top hitters in Division III baseball by using magic or mirrors. The King’s College junior has worked long and hard to make himself a hitter. Sweeney (Crestwood) has seen the hard work pay off. He’s currently hitting .426 (43for-101) with nine doubles, a triple and a team-high eight home runs. He leads the Monarchs in runs scored (34) and has 27 RBI. He was 7-for-13 with eight runs scored and four RBI as King’s won two of three against Wilkes last weekend. One hit was a homer, which gives him 26 for his career. “I’ve worked very hard at hitting since my sophomore year in high school,” Sweeney said. “I just wanted to get better so I tried to go to the batting cage every day and I’ve been doing the same thing ever since. I’ve learned to take advantage of pitchers’ mistakes, but the success really just comes from hard work and the desire to keep getting better.” The 6-foot-2 Sweeney weighed in at 165 pounds as a sophomore, but has added 15 pounds this season. Still, he doesn’t look like a home run hitter. “I’ve relied on my bat speed and fundamentals of swinging to hit the ball with power,” he said. “I know I’m not a big guy so I’ve practiced getting my whole body involved in my swing.” King’s coach Jerry Greeley, who works with the Baltimore Orioles as a coach during the summer, doesn’t hide his feeling for Sweeney. “Chris is one of the best players I have coached on and off the field at the pro and collegiate level,” he said. “His work ethic is second to none. He is an outstanding leader for older and younger players.” Greeley feels that Sweeney has a future in pro baseball. “Chris has developed his game to the point, that in my opinion, he is a legitimate pro prospect,” he said. “He’s worked to the point where his weaknesses of two years ago are now his strengths.” Sweeney likes the idea of going pro after he graduates, but isn’t thinking about that now. “I play in the Cal Ripken League in the summer and hope to get some looks, but I am mainly playing because I like playing and competing. There isn’t a college player in the country who wouldn’t love to get a shot at the next level and I’m no different.” The Monarchs, 11-17 overall and 5-10 in the Freedom Conference, are also getting solid hitting from juniors Eric Bohem of Stewartsville, N.J., Tim Marchetti (Hazleton Area) and Rob Lemoncelli (Pittston Area). Bohem is hitting .434 (49for-113), Marchetti .413 (33for-80) and Lemoncelli .353 (42-for-119). BIG EFFORT FOR AYERS – High Point freshman Reece Ayers (Tunkhannock) captured the 3,000 meter run at the recent Duke Invitational in Durham, N.C. He covered the distance in a personal record time of 8:46.59. “Reece’s time at Duke was somewhat deceiving in that he wasn’t really challenged and his purpose was to win the race,” coach Mike Esposito said. “He will run the 10k at our conference meet.” The Big South Conference Championships begin Thursday in Myrtle Beach, S.C. “Reece has really been coming around in the last month,” Esposito said. “He is fully healthy and training very well. Our plan is to keep him healthy, continue to build up his volume and let him grow into the longer races. He’s willing to do that. He’s a great kid.” NEW MARK FOR ZACK – Moravian senior Gary Zack (Crestwood) captured the javelin at last weekend’s Coach P Open in Bethlehem with a school and meet record toss of 226 feet, 6 inches (69.05 meters). Zack, who was already first on the TFRRS (Track & Field

BOSTON — Trailing the leaders by 200 yards when the Boston Marathon slogged through Heartbreak Hill, Wesley Korir passed them one by one until he took the lead on his way out of Kenmore Square. That’s when leg cramps forced him to slow down and relinquish the lead. “It’s hot out there, in case you didn’t know,” he told reporters after enduring temperatures in the mid-80s to win the 116th Boston Marathon on Monday. “I knew it was going to be hot, and one important thing that I had to take care of today ... was really hydrate as much as possible. I guess my biology degree kicked in a little bit.” Singing religious songs as he trudged along the scorching pavement, the native Kenyan — a permanent resident of the United States — retook the lead from Levy Matebo in the final mile to cross the finish line in 84.8-degree temperatures with a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes, 40 seconds. It was almost 10 minutes behind the world best established here a year ago by Geoffrey Mutai and the second-slowest Boston victory since1985. Mutai, who was hoping a repeat victory would earn him a spot on the Kenyan Olympic team, dropped out after 18 miles with stomach cramps. Instead, it was Korir who may have won a ticket to the London Games. “To me, I think running the Boston Marathon is an Olympic event,” he said. “I don’t care what comes up after this, but I’m really, really happy to win Boston.” Sharon Cherop won the women’s race to complete the Kenyan sweep, outkicking Jemima Jelagat Sumgong to win by 2 seconds in 2:31:50. The women’s winner was decided by a sprint down Boylston Street for the fifth consecutive race — all of them decided by 3 seconds or less. Cherop, who was also hoping to be selected for the Kenyan Olympic team, was third at the world championships and third in Boston last year. “This time around, I was really prepared,” she said. “Last time the race went so fast and I didn’t know I was about to finish. I didn’t know the course well and I didn’t know the finish line was coming.” Matebo finished 26 seconds behind Korir, and Bernard Kipyego was third as Kenyans swept the podium in both genders. Jason Hartmann, of Boulder, Colo., was in fourth place and the top American. The winners will receive $150,000 apiece.

The heat slowed the leaders and led to warnings that may have convinced as many as 4,300 noshows to sit this one out. Race organizers offered those who picked up their registration packets but did not start the opportunity to save a place in next year’s race. The largely unprecedented offer was issued in response to forecasts of high temperatures that rose from 69 at the start to a high of 89 by midafternoon. Crowds at the Copley Square medical tent were bigger than in previous years, with the smell of sunscreen and the sound of ambulance sirens in the air. Boston Athletic Association officials said their medical staff was helping more people and the busy period at the finish line medical tent arrived later than usual. A total of 22,426 runners started the race in Hopkinton — about 84 percent of the registered field of 26,716 entrants. A total of 3,683 never collected their bib numbers over the weekend. Another 427 who picked up their starting bibs did not show up at the start; they will be offered a chance to run in 2013 instead.

CLEMENS Continued from Page 1B

investment officer for an international bank — was asked to return, the only male to remain in the jury pool among those who were individually screened on the first day. Another potential juror recalled the 2008 hearing by saying: “At the time, I remember thinking it didn’t seem to be a great use of taxpayer money,” but she was kept in the pool after she said she could be impartial. “Even if I don’t agree with the reason that you’re brought before Congress, you still have to tell the truth .... If you perjure yourself before Congress, it’s still illegal,” said the woman, who is an executive for an environmental nonprofit organization. But another potential juror was excused after she volunteered: “I don’t know if that’s the best use of government tax dollars at this time.” She said her feelings could influence her ability to serve. Clemens lawyer Rusty Hardin even hinted that perhaps the defense might challenge Congress’ authority to call the hearing in the first place, but U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton was skeptical of that line of questioning. The judge reminded lawyers again that some of the jurors from the first trial felt a retrial would be a waste of taxpayer money, adding that one of the

hurdles in the case is that some people think “we have some significant problems in this country that are not being addressed by this Congress.” By the end of the day — after the proceedings had moved to a smaller courtroom — only13 potential jurors had been screened and just seven had been asked to return Wednesday for more screening. Clemens made about $160 million in salary and bonuses in his 24-year major league career, but it’s safe to say hardly any of it came from the three District of Columbia residents — all African-American females — who made the cut after saying they had never heard of him. “I’m not a fan of sports — period,” said one prospect, who works as a cashier at a grocery store. As the clock was hitting 5 p.m., Walton called it a day and chided the lawyers over the day’s tedious pace: “It doesn’t help the process to repeat what I’ve already asked.” The retrial is expected to last four to six weeks, with the first several days devoted to finding 12 jurors and four alternates with no preconceived opinion about the case. The vetting process began with Walton taking more than an hour to read 86 yes-or-no questions to the entire pool, including “Do you have any opinions about Major League Baseball — good, bad or whatever?” Lawyers on both sides read a list of 104 people who could be called as witnesses or whose names could be mentioned dur-

ing the trial, including former sluggers Barry Bonds and Jose Canseco; baseball commissioner Bud Selig; New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman; baseball writer Peter Gammons; and former Clemens teammates Paul O’Neill, Jorge Posada and Mike Stanton. Perhaps the most important name was Brian McNamee, Clemens’ former strength trainer, who says he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone and says he kept used needles that will be entered as scientific evidence at trial. Clemens lawyer Rusty Hardin stressed to the jury pool that not all of those potential witnesses would be called, or else they “would be here about two years.” Clemens, wearing a gray suit with a stylish diagonal-patterned tie, gave a warm handshake to a court employee he recognized as he entered the courtroom. He read papers in a manila folder while waiting for the proceedings to start and occasionally took notes once jury selection was under way. Clemens faces a maximum sentence of up to 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine if convicted on all six charges. Maximum penalties are unlikely because Clemens doesn’t have a criminal record, but Walton made plain at the first trial that Clemens was at risk of going to jail. Under U.S. sentencing guidelines, he probably would face up to 15 months to 21 months in prison.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Dellin Betances’ early struggles with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees continued on Monday. In the series-opener against Rochester, the 6-foot-8 righthander surrendered five runs on seven hits and four walks in just 4 2 ⁄3 innings as his ERA jumped to 10.38 through three outings. The 24-year-old, who also uncorked two wild pitches, was hit with his second loss of the season in a 5-3 setback to the Red Wings. The game, which was the third of the Yankees’ first homestand of the season but first in Rochester, saw the Red Wings get to Betances in the top of the second when Matt Rizzotti laced a single to right field to drive in a run for a 1-0 lead. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre evened the score 1-1 in the bottom of the third when Colin Curtis plated a run with a single to





knock in Kevin Russo. The Yankees opened their first lead of the game in the bottom of the fourth when Ramiro Pena homered over the left field fence. The two-run shot, which was Pena’s first of the season, gave the Yankees a 3-1 advantage. Betances, who danced in and out of trouble during the first four innings but got help from catcher Francisco Cervelli gunning down two potential base stealers, couldn’t get out of a jam in the fifth. That’s when the Red Wings plated four more runs. After Be-

tances got Darin Mastroianna on strikes, the next three batters reached base with one run scoring to pull Rochester within 3-2. The SWB pitcher then got the second out of the frame and could see his way out of another jam. But a Matt Carson single tied the score 3-3. Betances followed with a walk Joe Benson to load the bases and was relieved by Manny Delcarmen. Delcarmen got the final out of the inning, but not before giving up a two-run single to Rizzotti as Rochester took a 5-3 lead. Rizzotti finished the game 2-for-5 with three RBI. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre went down easily in innings five through eight before getting within striking distance in the bottom of the ninth. After Jack Cust walked to begin the frame, Ray Kruml reached on a fielder’s choice. Cervelli doubled to put runners on second

and third with two outs, but Pena struck out to end the game. Dewayne Wise, who was replaced by Kruml in center field in the top of the sixth, ended the game 2-for-2 for his fourth multihit game this season and is currently batting .500 (13-for-26) on the season. Red Wings 5, Yankees 3

Chara lifts Bruins past Caps for series lead By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON — Zdeno Chara scored the tiebreaking goal during 4-on-4 play with less than 2 minutes left, and the reigning Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins finally solved playoff rookie goalie Braden Holtby, beating the Washington Capitals 4-3 Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. Chara’s shot from the right cir-

cle appeared to get deflected on its way past Holtby. The Bruins captain also had two assists. Tim Thomas, last season’s playoff MVP, made 29 saves and ignored the taunting from fans who held up photos of President Barack Obama, reminding Boston’s goalie that he turned down a trip to the White House in January with his teammates. Game 4 is Thursday in Washington. After that, the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series

shifts back to Boston for Game 5 on Saturday. Brian Rolston, Rich Peverley and Daniel Paille also scored for the Bruins. Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Brooks Laich got Washington’s goals. Laich scored on a breakaway with 6 minutes left to make it 3-3, but Chara came through with 1:53 remaining for second-seeded Boston. Holtby, who blocked 72 of 74 shots through the first two

games, was good but not great Monday, making 25 saves. The action was more free-flowing than it had been in the series, and perhaps the teams were due. The Bruins ranked second in the NHL during the regular season with 269 goals, and no team had more players with 20 goals than Boston’s six. The Capitals have emphasized defense lately, but they still boast talented forwards such as Ovechkin, Semin and Nicklas Backstrom.


King’s victorious in opener, falls in nightcap Times Leader Staff

WILKES-BARRE – King’s College earned a doubleheader split Monday afternoon in women’s college softball action with a 9-1 victory in game one over Keystone College before a 6-5 loss in the second game. With a 2-1 lead going to the bottom of the fourth, King’s plated five runs to blow the game open. The Lady Monarchs pushed a pair of runs across in the fifth to invoke the eight-run rule. Jenn Harnischfeger went 2-for-4 with a three runs scored and one RBI while Tina Seber went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. Allison Herbert picked up the win for King’s. The Lady Monarchs held a 5-3 lead after four innings in game two, but Keystone scored three runs in the fifth keyed by a pair of King’s errors to win the game. Amanda Cardone was 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a run scored to lead the way for King’s. Harnischfeger was also 3-for-4 and added two runs scored.

leading 4-3, Mandy Seccia reached base on an error which allowed Wilkes to score and tie the game 4-4. Finch then singled home the game-winner through the right side to secure the non-league win. Finch led the offense with two hits and Jordan Borger also added two hits, including a home run. Seccia and Borger each scored twice. Laykin Hughes evened her mark at 5-5 on the year, going all eight innings and allowing eight hits and four runs while striking out six. Lycoming jumped out to a 3-0 lead through five innings in game two and added one more run in the seventh to hold on for a 4-1 win. Wilkes posted just six hits in the loss, the Colonels’ lone run coming when Alysha Bixler doubled and scored on a hit from Borger.

Apple slump hits Nasdaq

Sinking shares of Apple pulled the Nasdaq composite index lower Monday. The tech leader’s shares fell 4.2 percent, the fifth consecutive day of declines. Apple accounts for 12 percent of the Nasdaq, which ended down more than 1 percent, while the Dow Jones industrial average, which doesn’t include Apple, rose. Apple has been on a charmed run for the first three months of the year thanks to the huge popularity of its iPhones and iPads. From January through March, the stock shot up 48 percent, to nearly $600 from $405, and drove the Nasdaq’s 19 percent rise.

Kim will head World Bank

Jim Yong Kim, an American who is president of Dartmouth College, was selected Monday to be the next president of the World Bank. He’ll succeed Robert Zoellick, who’s stepping down after a five-year term. Developing nations Kim waged an unsuccessful challenge to Kim, 52, a physician and pioneer in treating HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in the developing world. Kim’s selection marks a break from previous World Bank leaders, who were typically political, legal or economic figures. The World Bank raises money from its member nations and borrows from investors to provide low-cost loans to developing countries.

WASHINGTON — Driven by high gas prices and an uncertain economy, Americans are turning to trains and buses to get around in greater numbers than ever before. But the aging transit systems they’re riding face an $80 billion maintenance backlog that jeopardizes service just when it’s most in demand. The number of transit trips over a 12-month period will likely set a new record later this month or next, say Feder-

al Transit Administration officials. The current peak is 10.3 billion trips over a year, set in December 2008. But decades of deferred repairs and modernization projects also have many transit agencies scrambling to keep trains and buses in operation. The transit administration estimated in 2010 that it would take $78 billion to get transit systems into shape, and officials say the backlog has grown since then. In some places, workers search the Internet for spare parts that are

no longer manufactured. In others, trains operate using equipment designed, literally, in the horse-and-buggy era. In Philadelphia, commuters ride trains over rusty steel bridges, some of them dating back to the 19th century. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority — which operates subway, trolley, bus and commuter rail systems — is responsible for 346 bridges that are on average 80 years old. A key power substation relies on electrical equipment

manufactured in 1926. There’s no hope for acquiring spare parts, so workers try to open the boxes housing the equipment as infrequently as possible to prevent damage from exposure to the environment. “We’re operating on a prayer on that line,” Joseph Casey, the transportation authority’s general manager, said in an interview. “If that fails, half of our commuter rail system would shut down.” The system carries 125,000 passengers on weekdays.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — After months of legal wrangling between two Silicon Valley tech titans, attorneys for Oracle and Google prepared to make their opening statements to a San Francisco federal court jury Monday in a high-stakes battle over the world’s leading smartphone operating software. Oracle is seeking nearly $1 billion in damages and an injunction that could force Google to change the way it uses and distributes the popular Android operating system. Oracle claims Google used unauthorized copies of Oracle’s Java software tools to create the Android program. The two-month trial will feature testimony from a host of Silicon Valley luminaries including Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, Google cofounder and CEO Larry Page and Google chairman Eric Schmidt, who was chief technology officer at Sun Microsystems when Java was created. Their testimony could pull back the curtain on matters that companies usually keep secret, including internal discussions about the creation of a new system like Android and its potential value. Google lets smartphone-makers use Android for free, but it collects advertising revenue from Internet searches conducted on those devices.

NICK DELORENZO imperfect voice-command technology and so on. The reality is likely to be somewhere in between, but the amount of power packed into a simple pair of glasses is impressive, especially given its “coming very soon” status. Not to be outdone, a company called Innovega announced it was working on a prototype for contact lenses that match or exceed Google glasses’ capability. Tech companies make bold predictions like this all the time, and they don’t always come true, but now the government think-tank DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a.k.a. the guys who really invented the Internet and a whole bunch

When excess perspiration is a problem


Elizabeth Brammer, of Burleson, Texas, receives her monthly transfusions at her home. For Brammer, finding out she had neuromyelitis optica, or NMO, came as a shock, a relief and a vindication that she was right to push her doctors into investigating her case further for so many years.



ALLAS — Kathy Krolikowski of Frisco, Texas, suspect-

ed something was wrong long before her doctors did. Every time she said her body ached, she was told she was working too hard or not exercising enough. It took three years before she heard, just as she had suspected, that she had the same autoimmune disorder that had afflicted her mother: rheumatoid arthritis.

Autoimmune disease, which disproportionately strikes women, is easy to miss, says Dr. Neelay Gandhi, a family practitioner on the medical staff at Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano, who took over Krolikowski’s care six months ago. That’s because the general symptoms of fatigue and achiness are common, and autoimmune disease can take many forms, including lupus, thyroid disorders and multiple sclerosis, he says. In autoimmune disorders, an immune system attacks the healthy tissues it was designed to protect. Getting an early diagnosis can be crucial because the damage the disease causes generally can be stopped or slowed, but not reversed. Krolikowski, 64, says that’s why she advises

women to be persistent when something feels wrong and to find a doctor who will be attentive to their concerns. “Sometimes it’s hard to keep going in when you think, ‘They don’t believe me. What am I going to do?’” she says. Dr. Noel Rose, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Autoimmune Disease Research in Baltimore, has spent decades advocating for increased recognition of autoimmune diseases, which he says afflict an estimated 20 million Americans. Threefourths of those cases are women; the Office of Research on Women’s Health at the National Institutes of Health describes it as the underlying cause of more than 100 serious, chronic diseasSee DISORDERS, Page 2C

Q: For a long time, I’ve suffered from terrible sweating. I’m not overweight, am extremely healthy and I’m not taking any medications. What can you recommend? A: The first thing, which I’m sure you’ve already done, is to look for a possible cause. You’re healthy, but some sufferers have an underlying medical problem like an overactive thyroid, menopausal syndrome with hot flashes, persistent anxiety, frequent low blood sugar reactions or simply too much body fat that makes them sweat excessively. You may be one of roughly 1 percent of folks who simply sweats a lot. Have you tried the prescription antiperspirant Drysol for underarm sweating? For generalized sweating, Robinul or Robinul Forte might help. It’s a drug to slow up a hyperactive bowel, but it has a side effect of dry mouth and decreased sweating. Iontophoresis or electrophoresis can provide temporary relief using a small 9 volt battery current to the palms and soles. Botox injections provide six months of relief for stubborn underarm sweating, but it’s temporary. A new FDAapproved minimally-invasive highlyeffective treatment called “miraDry” uses microwave heat to destroy the sweat glands under the arm. It requires two sessions, costs around $3,000, is potentially permanent and is not currently indicated for the treatment of hyperhidrosis in other areas of the body. I wish I could say that the solution to your problem is “no sweat,” but obviously it’s not. Q: Why are paper cuts so painful? A: There are several reasons: First of all, if you examine a ripped piece of paper or cardboard you’ll notice that it’s made from many jagged fibers that are held together as paper. That creates a cut in the skin that’s rough, unlike the clean and precise cut of a razor blade. Second, there are lots of delicate sensory nerve ending on the fingertips , unlike other areas with far fewer nerve ending like the skin on your back. That means that any break in the skin, especially from the rough cut of a piece of paper, is going to hurt way out of proportion to the injury sustained. Third, there are chemicals used in the process of making paper that make contact with the exposed skin of a cut and cause a chemical irritation. Paper cuts are best treated with the application of an antibacterial ointment, preferably one that also has a pain relieving ingredient (e.g. — Neosporin Plus Pain Relief ointment). Liquid bandage is another treatment option after cleaning a paper cut. Dr. Mitchell Hecht is a physician specializing in internal medicine. Send questions to him at: "Ask Dr. H," P.O.

es, and it was cited in the American Journal of Public Health in 2000 as being one of the top 10 leading causes of death among women 65 and younger. The hope for cures lies in finding the common roots for the diseases that continue to be treated in a “scattershot” way by a variety of specialists as separate conditions, says Rose, co-author of the Encyclopedia of Autoimmune Diseases (Facts on File, $75). Rose would like to see autoimmune disease recognized as an umbrella for these various conditions, just as cancer is used to describe a wide array of diseases with an underlying cause. In fact, the more we understand about autoimmune disease, the better we will understand cancer because they’re opposite ends of the same problem, he says. Cells are too quick to attack healthy tissue in autoimmune disorders and too slow to fight in cancer, allowing harmful tissue to grow out of control. “Autoimmune diseases are relatively common, and people should be aware that they’re as much a threat to their health as cancer and heart disease,” Rose says. Good communication between doctor and patient can prove key

to navigating this disease, said Dr. Benjamin Greenberg, a neurologist and assistant professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. In neuromyelitis optica, a rare autoimmune disorder that attacks the optic nerves and spinal cord, he learned, many patients reported incidents of vomiting or frequent hiccups before the symptoms manifested themselves. Now when he takes a patient’s history, he asks about hiccups and vomiting. “If they have this condition and you catch it early, you can prevent them from losing their vision or becoming quadriplegic,” he says. Elizabeth Brammer, 30, of Burleson didn’t have anyone around to ask her questions like that when she was 11 and began struggling off and on with her eyesight. Her symptoms were dismissed at first as a plea for attention and were later mistakenly diagnosed as multiple sclerosis. Due to the lack of proper treatment, she lost vision in one eye while in college. She finally got the correct diagnosis from a neurologist in New York four years ago. Since moving to Texas in 2010, she has been under the care of Greenberg, who prescribes regular, preventive immunosuppressive medications that have prevented a flare-up, attack or relapse during her pregnancy with her twin boys. Gavin and Garrison turned 1 on March 24, and she continues to be in remission. For Brammer, finding out she








COMMON AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES FOR WOMEN Lupus: The immune system creates an antibody that can damage any part of the body, but most commonly the joints, skin, kidneys, heart and lungs. Symptoms include fever, weight loss, hair loss, mouth sores, fatigue, rashes, painful or swollen joints and muscles, sensitivity to the sun, chest pain, headache, dizziness, seizure, memory problems and behavior changes. Rheumatoid arthritis: The immune system attacks the lining of the joints, resulting in fatigue, fever, weight loss, eye inflammation, lung disease, lumps of tissue under the elbows and anemia. Can lead to stiff, swollen, deformed joints and reduced movement. Multiple sclerosis: The immune system attacks the protective coating around the nerves, damaging the brain and spinal cord and causing trouble with coordination, balance, speaking and walking. It can ultimately lead to numbness and tingling in arms, legs, hands and feet and to tremors and paralysis. Thyroid disease (two common forms): • Hashimoto’s disease (underactive thyroid): The immune system damages the thyroid gland, leading to decreased production of thyroid hormone, resulting in fatigue, weakness, weight gain, sensitivity to cold, muscle aches, stiff joints, facial swelling and constipation. • Graves’ disease (overactive thyroid): The immune system binds to receptors in the thyroid gland and activates the gland to make too much thyroid hormone, resulting in insomnia, irritability, weight loss, heat sensitivity, sweating, brittle hair, muscle weakness, light menstrual periods, bulging eyes and shaky hands.

Set short- and long-term goals.” “Find your motivation. It’s not about what the scale says. Is it for your kids? To be a role model? Maybe you want to be wealthy. Healthy and fit workers make more (money) than their unhealthy, unfit co-workers.” Build in incentives — perhaps one day to eat a favorite dessert. Take a rest day.

Extra coupons left on shelves can often cause more harm than good Dear Abby: I’m a 43-year-old veteran of the grocery industry. I am also an associate of one of the premier supermarkets in the country, and I disagree with your response to “Chicago Clipper” (Feb. 18)! Coupons are a necessary evil and are graciously accepted, but they create an abundance of work for retailers. It takes countless hours of sorting, logging, filling out forms, mailing and receiving to be reimbursed for the face value of the coupon. This is hardly a benefit to the grocer. The abuse and fraud associated with coupons adds up into millions

DEAR ABBY ADVICE of dollars. When a customer leaves one on a shelf for the next shopper, it usually ends up on the floor. So we now have a slick surface that someone can slip on and fall. When they are placed on an item in the dairy or meat case, they inevitably fall to the bottom and clog the drains, which causes water backups — another safety hazard — not to mention it’s trash we must fish out. All of this takes time and money away from the associates performing our duties in a very low-profit industry. By leaving an unwanted coupon on


a store shelf for the next customer, Chicago Clipper is NOT “paying it forward.” She’s adding to the problem. So, please, folks, keep your coupons in your purse, wallet, pocket or coupon book until you get to the checkout line. — Florida Butcher Dear Florida Butcher: Thank you for pointing out to my readers and me some of the problems coupons may create. Your sentiments were repeated by many retailers. However, other shoppers and retailers offered suggestions that may help to eliminate the problem, including: coupon exchanges, donating them to the military, posting them on Freecycle, Craigslist or Facebook, etc. Read on:


Dear Abby: I am a coupon user. I am also a grocery store employee. I constantly have to pick up coupons left by customers who are “paying it forward” or “being generous.” Not only are they a safety hazard, but they make our store look unkempt. We pride ourselves in maintaining a high standard of appearance. We actually clean up more coupons than those we redeem. Why not hand the extra coupons to your checker and ask that they be offered to the next customer? As for litterbugs who leave expired coupons laying around, every check stand is equipped with a garbage can, and an employee will be more than happy to throw out your trash if you ask. — Store Manager in Montana

Dear Abby: I leave coupons for others, but I often go one step further. If I see someone with the item in his or her cart, I’ll offer the coupon directly to that person. So far, I have met pleasant people who are happy to get a break at the cash register. I have also met people who have told me how delighted they were to find coupons on shelves. — Marie in Maine

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



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone is defending passionately an argument they know can be defeated. Don’t take the bait. This is a tricky game, and it’s not worth your time to participate in it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you constantly edit yourself? It gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? That’s why it’s such a tremendous relief to be around people who completely accept you for who you are. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The day features some silliness and strange entertainment. Just because someone is weird doesn’t mean they won’t make a stellar friend. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even games that are usually fun can turn quite dull if you know you’re going to win. Today, love will be a game, too. It will be important to get plenty of challenge into your personal life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You stay on track by thinking in rather blackand-white terms. Each decision you make brings you either closer or further away from your goals. With every move, you’ll ask yourself, “Which is it?” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll do as you intend to do. The success or failure of your actions is irrelevant. What’s important is that you follow through, honoring your strong convictions. Action increases your confidence. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll use language in a way that expands, guides and directs people’s actions and feelings. You’ll say “I love you” and send a person’s mood to the highest stars.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you go about your day, note that not everything should be compared. Because two things are next to each other doesn’t mean there’s a logical intrinsic relationship between those two things. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is trying to sell you, and you’ll feel the squeeze. The thing about marketers is that if they can’t identify a need, they manufacture a demand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If your eyes are closed, you can fall upon the very thing you’ve been searching for and not see it. You’ll pinch yourself metaphorically to make sure that all of your senses are awake. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are smart people at the core of your circle. If you’re wondering who, it’s because you haven’t yet met some of these people. New friends are attracted to your high integrity level. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A situation is not what you thought it would be. You may let go of all of your hard preparation in favor of being present with what the moment needs. You can do this because you are truly confident. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 17). This year you’ll be energized by the same challenges that used to stop you in your tracks. You’ll employ new skills, and your game just keeps improving. You’ll focus on your loved ones’ needs, connecting with them on deep levels. Enjoyable work fills your summer. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 10, 40, 39 and 18.
