WVSA treatment plant idea meets resistance By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

HANOVER TWP. – The plan to build a natural gas drilling wastewater treatment plant at the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority met with heavy resistance from township residents and environmental advocates at the WVSA board meeting Tuesday. The sanitary authority has consulted PA Northeast Aqua Resources to conduct a feasibility study on building a plant to

treat wastewater produced by Marcellus Shale gas drilling. John Minora of PA Northeast Aqua Resources said the initial study is complete, and the sanitary authority is now working on a second study with Red Desert/Cate Street Capital, a company seeking to build the plant next to the WVSA’s current facility.

Pittston Area eyes some sports cuts

Board votes 8-1 to eliminate meals for members as district faces tight budget. By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

YATESVILLE – After exploring numerous ways to cut costs, Charlie Turco, athletic director at Pittston Area School District, told the school board at Tuesday’s work session that eliminating the seventh- and eighthgrade sports programs seems to be the only option. The cut would save the district approximately $48,000. Turco said that although the teams might be eliminated, the students can still play on the junior high teams. Board President Terry Best recognized that many schools in the state are cutting their seventh- and eighth-grade teams to save money, as well, as districts face cuts under Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget. The board said parents will receive a Connect-Ed automated call in the near future inviting them to a meeting in the high school auditorium for more information and input. The date and time for the meeting will also be advertised in the near future. During the regular meeting that immediately followed, Hughestown resident Joseph Alpaugh said teachers should consider a pay freeze and contributing toward health insurance costs. “They should agree to a wage freeze or get laid off with no extension of their con-

tract,” he said. Best agreed the board has to start looking into ways to cut costs in the teachers contract before it comes up for renewal in 2013. “We can’t wait until the last minute.” Board members Robert Linskey and Richard Gorzkowski suggested some additional costcutting measures. Linskey said getting rid of air fresheners in the bathrooms would save the district $1,500 per quarter. Superintendent George Cosgrove said he will look into whether the air fresheners are needed for hygienic reasons. Gorzkowski said the board members should agree to fend for themselves and vote to eliminate the district-provided meals and beverages at meetings and other functions. The board voted 8-1 to eliminate the paid meals, with Mark Singer voting against. He said he appreciates the meal when he has to go right from his job to a meeting. With a budget of $40 million, he said the district should be able to provide a sandwich and a drink to the board members. He said that as a board member, he is eligible to claim gas mileage, but doesn’t. Elimination of the meals, which cost $200 per meeting, will save the district $1,000 per year, the board said.

Residents question pipeline notice Dallas Township officials confronted over firm’s plan to lay a line to the Transco. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – Residents addressed the board of supervisors Tuesday evening about a state government notification dated in December about the proposed Williams pipeline project. Diane Dreier, of Dallas, said she had asked the board at its April 5 meeting whether it had received any Act 14 notices from natural gas companies concerning the proposed pipeline project, and Zoning Officer Leonard Kozick had responded that the township did not receive a notice. Dreier told the board she had been mailed a copy of an Act 14 notice dated Dec. 13, 2010, on behalf of Williams alerting the township of its intention to apply for permits from the state Department of Environmental Protection to construct a 33-mile pipeline that will connect to the Transco interstate pipeline in the

township. Solicitor Thomas Brennan said he hadn’t known about the notice until the end of last week. Kozick said he saw it for the first time at the end of March. Dreier’s concerns were stemmed to the 30-day comment period attached to Act 14 protocol, which allows for the township to respond to the company’s intentions. “Is the community entitled to know in advance?” she asked the board. Brennan told her it was an oversight on behalf of the township and assured her Act 14 notices in the future will be made public knowledge. Township Engineer Tom Doughton said most project paperwork is sent right to the planning commission, despite to

whom it may be addressed. Resident Liz Martin said the oversight was unacceptable, and the fact that the board was not aware and therefore could not alert the public had hindered how the public could react to the project. “When we have been here, asking questions upon questions about pipelines and metering stations and compressor stations, why wasn’t it mentioned?” she asked. Martin specifically asked Chairman Phillip Walter why he hadn’t seen it, as the Act14 notice was addressed to him and was delivered via FedEx. “Sometimes I don’t see them,” he said. In other business, Kozick said the zoning office has received submitted land development and subdivision plans Tuesday from Williams for the proposed metering station to be built off Hildebrandt Road. He said he has not looked at them and did not know if the plans had changed at all since they were withdrawn from the township last week.

HAZLE TWP. -- Students and parents came out in force Tuesday night to address proposed Hazleton Area School District budget cuts and voice their concerns about what was going to happen to sports programs and student activity clubs. The board is considering cuts that would completely wipe out all junior high sports and student clubs in the junior and senior high, including National Honor Society and student council. Hazleton Area joins other districts in Luzerne County and across the state in facing major cuts in state funding under Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget.

For sports, parents suggested a “pay-to-play” approach in which each player’s family would have to pay a fee to cover costs associated with that sport. Maryann Thomas, who said she was a parent of three athlete and honor students, said pay to play will work because, even if a family cannot afford to pay, the Booster Club will pick up the cost so everyone can participate. Thomas also suggested the parents can set up carpooling to take athletes to their games rather using school buses. Insurance issues and risks for parents associated with that arrangement could be worked out with the insurance carrier, it was suggested. Parents also said teachers are willing to volunteer their time for coaching as well as advising

John also explained to the students in attendance that this decision the board is going to make is very hard on the board. He said board members are there to make the budget work based on what they have. “We are trying to do the best we can to save as much as we can,” he said. He told students that it was good to see them all there to express there feelings and concerns on these matters. John said the board does not want to cut anything, but it is in a position in which it must cut programs based on the governor’s proposed cuts.

ducted a child welfare investigation at View’s Harris Hill Road house at the request of Luzerne County Children & Youth Services. Police said View lived at the residence with his 13-year-old daughter and his mother, 79-year-old Dorothy Breen. Police said that when they arrived at the residence and went inside “there was an immediate strong odor

of feces” and “hundreds of flies” throughout the house. The kitchen counter, sink and stove were cluttered with kitchen items and stained with food, and a bucket in the living room was filled with liquid. Police asked Breen if the liquid was urine, and she replied yes. A search of a bedroom revealed clothing, papers, trash, toys and a ripped mattress, while in another bedroom the walls were damaged and the ceiling falling in, police said.

In the house’s bathroom, police said, they found a bathtub filled with feces, overflowing onto the floor and rotting the floor and subfloor. “The bathroom flooring had collapsed, exposing the floor joists,” the criminal complaint states. A township code enforcement officer condemned the residence as dangerous and unsafe, and unfit for human habitation. The house was vacated and the child was placed in the care of Children & Youth services. Breen pleaded guilty earlier this month to similar charges and will be sentenced on May 13. Breen and View were ordered by Augello to undergo a mental health evaluation.

Meuser: Proposed cuts far from final State officials talk state budget, gas drilling at Wyoming County breakfast. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

TUNKHANNOCK – Bill Kelley has already seen his business benefit from the Marcellus Shale gas drilling industry. Kelley, owner of BX3, an oilfield supply company, and Taylor Rental of South Montrose and Tunkhannock, attended Tuesday morning’s Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce Legislative Breakfast to hear what the latest was on the gas drilling issue. He came away impressed. “The legislators appear to be approaching it as an opportunity and not as a negative,” Kelley said. “I guess you can say I’m somewhat optimistic.” The breakfast was held at the Shadowbrook Inn & Resort and featured state acting Secretary of Revenue Dan Meuser, Secretary of Community & Economic Development Alan Walker, state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, state Reps. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, Sid Michaels Kavulich, D-Taylor, and Sandra Major, R-Bridgewater Township. U.S. Sens. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, and Pat Toomey, RLehigh Valley, and U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, sent representatives. Kelley and many of the 175 in attendance wanted to hear about Marcellus Shale and whether a tax will be imposed on the drillers. They asked about job training for the positions in the business and whether there will be funding for roads damaged by high truck traffic. Firm added jobs Kelley said he rents out items such as light towers and safety equipment used by the drilling companies. He said he has added some employees, having 19

on staff “Gov. (Tom) Corbett campaigned on the promise of no new taxes,” Meuser said. “I don’t think a severance tax is an option at this time.” The crowd gave a short round of applause after Meuser’s comment. Meuser, who is expected to be confirmed by the state Senate next week, said Corbett’s proposed budget is just that – a proposal. “The cuts being discussed are far from final,” Meuser said. “The governor’s budget proposal was a starting point.” He said the state is facing a $4.2 billion shortfall brought on by “the last eight years of overspending.” He said the federal stimulus dollars – more than $1 billion over the last two years – is now gone. Meuser said the state basic education funding has not been cut by Corbett, but has been held to its pre-stimulus level. “That one-time gift of $1 billion is no longer there,” Meuser said. “That is the reality of it; the numbers don’t lie.” $27.3 billion budget proposal The governor’s proposed budget stands at $27.3 billion and Corbett has said that he will not approve a higher amount. Walker said the “day of reckoning has come.” “We can’t carry a deficit forward,” he said. “If we do, we run the risk of bankrupting the commonwealth.” Corbett’s proposed budget contains no tax or fee increases and cuts government spending by 3 percent, most of which is done by consolidating programs, targeting “inefficiencies” and reducing or eliminating discretionary financial grants. Baker said it’s critical to pass a balanced state budget on time. She said she is certain that there will be no increase in taxes this year. She said the legislature is looking at placing a sales tax on

Internet purchases. She said she expects the natural gas industry to spur job growth that will result in additional new revenue for the state. Kavulich said he favors taxing cigars and smokeless tobacco. “Something has to change,” he said. “We have to find new sources of revenue.” The state Senate recently approved legislation sponsored by Baker to improve gas pipeline safety. The measure includes a statewide registry for Class 1 Marcellus Shale pipelines, requiring operators to report the location and aggregate miles of the pipeline to the PUC. Baker’s bill gives the PUC authority to conduct safety inspections and investigations, respond to complaints, assess fines or penalties, and address service quality issues for gas and hazardous liquid pipeline operators consistent with federal pipeline safety laws and regulations. “If someone asks how much pipeline will be laid as the result of the Marcellus Shale develop-

ment, the honest and indefensible answer is no one knows,” Baker said. “This legislation is necessary because someone must know. Local officials need to know. Emergency response units certainly need to know. Environmental protection agencies need to know.”

she said. Baker and Boback said they would consider legislation that would allow municipalities to enact an impact fee on the natural gas industry to finance road repairs and other work that would be necessary as a result of the drilling. “I would support an impact fee as long as the money goes to the counties that are most affected,” Baker said. Boback said she would favor a reasonable fee that would help the communities and protect the environment. The breakfast was sponsored by People’s Neighborhood Bank. Alan Dakey, representing the bank, said he was pleased with the turnout and found the issues discussed informative and interesting. “I deal with people every day and the issue most on their minds is Marcellus Shale,” Dakey said. “I’m glad we had so much discussion about it today.”

Meuser: Let industry grow Meuser said that if done right, the Marcellus Shale industry will establish the state’s economic platform for the future. “You have to allow the shale industry to grow,” Kavulich said. “We can’t over-regulate it.” Kavulich said he’s concerned about cuts to higher education, but added he is also concerned about where funding for education has been going and how it has been used. “Tuitions seem to be going up every year,” he said. Baker expressed concern about the public welfare budget being higher than the education budget. “All of the proposed cuts need Bill O’Boyle, a Times Leader staff to be looked at very carefully,” writer, may be reached at 829-7218.

Obama pushes for cut in deficit

B R I E F

President expresses optimism but criticizes GOP plan to deal with the federal budget’s problems. By MARK S. SMITH Associated Press

ANNANDALE, Va. — President Barack Obama on Tuesday promoted his plan to scale back spending without halting aid to education, energy

and science, acknowledging to a town hall crowd that mounting deficits could inflict "serious damage" on the country. In an appearance at Northern Virginia Community College in suburban Annandale, Va., Obama blasted Republican alternatives to deal with federal budget problems, while at the same time predicting the two deeply divided parties would ultimately find a compromise on spending priori-

ties. “I’m optimistic. I’m hopeful,” Obama said in his campaign-style outing. “Both sides have come together before. I believe we can do it again.” Obama’s pitch came as his re-election bid is now under way in earnest. He is traveling across the country this week with a message that the government must reduce its staggering debt by cutting defense spending and health care costs, increasing tax-

es on the wealthy and protecting priorities he deems untouchable. The president and House Republicans are vying for control of a suddenly surging national debt debate. Obama says his plan spreads the burden more fairly than a rival House Republican plan that would cut roughly the same amount of spending through budget cuts and an overhaul of the Medicare and Medicaid health care programs.

Syria eases; crowds defiant

Syria did away with 50 years of emergency rule Tuesday, but emboldened and defiant crowds accused President Bashar Assad of simply trying to buy time while he clings to power in one of the most repressive regimes in the Middle East. Repealing the state of emergency, which gives authorities almost boundless powers of surveillance and arrest, was once the key demand of the monthlong uprising. But the protest movement has crossed a significant threshold, with increasing numbers now seeking nothing less than the downfall of the regime. WASHINGTON

Warming suit in doubt

The Supreme Court appeared deeply skeptical Tuesday about allowing states to sue electric utilities to force cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Both conservative and liberal justices questioned whether a federal judge could deal with the complex issue of global warming, a topic they suggested is better left to Congress and the Environmental Protection Agency. The court heard argument over whether to end the lawsuit by six states, New York City and three conservation groups against four private companies and the federal Tennessee Valley Authority, the five largest emitters of carbon dioxide in the United States. The Obama administration has joined with the companies in asking the high court to throw out the lawsuit.

Radioactive water being pumped With Japan’s nuclear crisis dragging on, public frustration with the government is growing. By MARI YAMAGUCHI and YURI KAGEYAMA Associated Press

TOKYO — The operator of Japan’s crippled nuclear plant began pumping highly radioactive water from the basement of one of its buildings to a makeshift storage area Tuesday in a crucial step toward easing the nuclear crisis. Removing the 6.6 million gallons of contaminated water that has collected in the basement of a turbine building at Unit 2 of the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant will help allow access for workers trying to restore vital cooling systems that were knocked out in the March 11 tsunami. It is but one of many steps in a lengthy process to resolve the crisis. Tokyo Electric Power Co. projected in a road map released over the weekend that it would take up to nine months to reach a cold shutdown of the plant. But government officials ac-

tors, Nishiyama said, adding that this process would take “several months.” Once the contaminated water in the plant buildings is safely removed and radioactivity levels decline, workers can begin repairing the cooling systems for the reactors of Units 1, 2 and 3, which were in operation at the time of the tsunami. Workers must also restore cooling functions at the plant’s six spent fuel pools and a joint pool for all six units. When the tsunami struck, units 5 and 6 were going through a regular inspection. On March 20, they were put in cold shutdown, which is when a reactor’s core is stable at temperatures below 212 Fahrenheit. With the nuclear crisis dragging on, public frustration with the government is growing. Opinion polls show more than two-thirds of Japanese are unhappy with the leadership of Prime Minister Naoto Kan, who was grilled for hours Monday by opposition politicians, many demanding he resign. TEPCO has offered residents forced to evacuate from homes around the plant about $12,000 per household as interim compensation.

Administration eases pain of Medicare cuts

BOISE, IDAHO

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press

Rescuers trying to reach a trapped Idaho silver miner on Tuesday were forced by unstable conditions to alter their operation and are now attempting to reach him from a new direction. The changes were necessary due to dangerous conditions more than a mile underground inside the Lucky Friday Mine, said Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration Amy Louviere. There, a collapse last Friday trapped Larry "Pete" Marek, a 53-year-old employee of Hecla Mining Co. He hasn’t been heard from since the collapse. It’s unclear just how this change of plans will impact the duration of the rescue or the time needed to reach the area where Marek might be. Company officials said the conditions underground are unstable, as rescue workers encountered a debris field laden with boulders, twisted wires, mesh and broken concrete that had been used to shore up the tunnel before it caved in. "It changes every shift," said Stephany Bales, a Hecla spokeswoman. "It’s a long tedious, process. What they’re dealing with, under there, boulders, cement and wires, it isn’t an easy task, by any stretch. It is unstable."

WASHINGTON — Millions of seniors in popular private insurance plans offered through Medicare will be getting a reprieve from some of the most controversial cuts in President Barack Obama’s health care law. In a policy shift critics see as political, the Health and Human Services department has decided to award quality bonuses to hundreds of Medicare Advantage plans rated merely average. The $6.7 billion infusion could head off service cuts that would have been a headache for Obama and Democrats in next year’s elections for the White House and Congress. More than half the roughly 11 million Medicare Advantage enrollees are in plans rated average. In a recent letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, two prominent GOP lawmakers questioned what they termed the administration’s "newfound support" for Medicare Advantage. The shift "may represent a thinly veiled use of taxpayer dollars for political purposes," wrote Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah and Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan. Camp chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees Medicare. Hatch is his counterpart as ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. A recent AP-GfK poll found that 62 percent of seniors disapprove of Obama’s

handling of health care, as contrasted with 52 percent approval among Americans overall. The poll also found that seniors are more likely to trust Republicans than Democrats on health. The insurance industry says the bonuses will turn what would have averaged out as a net cut for Medicare Advantage plans in 2012 into a slight increase. The administration says the reason for

the bonuses is quality improvement, not politics, and the program will be evaluated as it goes along. "We are looking at whether an alternative payment incentive structure would lead to broader quality improvements across all Medicare Advantage plans, by giving incentives for a broader range of plans to improve," said Medicare spokesman Brian Cook.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Britain is sending up to 20 military advisers to help Libya’s ragtag rebel force break a military stalemate with Moammar Gadhafi’s army, even as NATO acknowledged Tuesday that its airstrikes alone cannot stop the daily shelling of the besieged opposition-held city of Misrata. Gadhafi’s troops have been pounding Misrata indiscriminately with mortars and rockets, a NATO general said, and residents reported more explo- Gadhafi’s sions and fire- troops have fights in Libya’s third- been poundlargest city. ing Misrata. Hospitals are overflowing and 120 patients need to be evacuated from the city that has been under siege for nearly two months, the World Health Organization said. The plight of Misrata’s civilians and the battlefield deadlock are raising new questions about the international community’s strategy in Libya. The leaders of the U.S., Britain and France have said Gadhafi must go, but seem unwilling to commit to a more forceful military campaign. NATO’s mandate is restricted to protecting civilians. Adm. Giampaolo Di Paola, chairman of NATO’s military committee, said that even though the military alliance’s operations have done “quite significant damage” to the Libyan regime’s heavy weaponry, what Gadhafi has left is “still considerable.” Asked if more airpower is needed, Di Paola said any “significantly additional” allied contribution would be welcome. The rebels seized control of most of eastern Libya shortly after the uprising began in February, while Gadhafi is entrenched in the west, but the front line hasn’t changed dramatically since then. Frustration over the stalemate has spurred talk of new tactics, including dispatching military personnel to Libya. Britain took the lead Tuesday, saying it is sending up to 20 senior soldiers who will help organize the rebels, many of whom have had little military training or battle experience. However, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would not arm the opposition or assist in military operations. Britain has already sent nonlethal support, including 1,000 sets of body armor and 100 satellite phones. “As the scale of the humanitarian crisis has grown, so has the urgency of increasing our efforts to defend civilians against the attack from Gadhafi forces,” Hague said. Allies would also consider supplying Libya’s rebels with technical equipment such as radars or systems to intercept and block telecommunications.

Shickshinny Authority staffing, records probed

Following a complaint over several issues, DEP looks into sanitary-sewer work. By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

SHICKSHINNY – Investigating a complaint about several issues, officials with the state Department of Environmental Protection spent several hours on Tuesday poring over records at the Shickshinny Sanitary Sewer Authority office on Main Road. DEP spokesman Mark Carmon said the complainant, whom he would not identify, had concerns about water sampling techniques and methods, staffing and recordkeeping procedures. Carmon declined to provide more details on the complaint because it is “part of an ongoing investigation.” He said the authority regularly sends records to the department as required, and some of those records also are under evaluation. Some authority members were leaving the plant office after a regularly scheduled authority meeting as DEP staffers began arriving. Authority Secretary Mary Beach had returned to the office because she forgot something, and she assisted DEP staff with finding some records, she said. Beach said investigators were reviewing records from “2010 back to 2006.” Purchase orders and invoices were among the records being reviewed, but she didn’t know what, if any, other records were under scrutiny. The authority has come under some scrutiny in the past year after state police in Shickshinny investigated a complaint about former plant operator Mark Gensel

tampering with timecards. Gensel, 49, of Conyngham Street, Shickshinny, was sentenced last month to six months probation for falsifying time cards. State police launched a probe after Beach and authority board member Francene TearpockMartini filed a complaint in August. Beach told police she became suspicious of Gensel’s activities and brought her concerns to Tearpock-Martini. The women kept tabs on Gensel’s time cards and went to the state police after other board members ignored their concerns, according to a criminal complaint. Tearpock-Martini said she suspects the DEP investigation might be related to Gensel’s work at the authority. She also noted that one of the authority’s customers – the State Correctional Institution at Retreat – is disputing authority bills and hired an engineering firm to do an assessment of prison sewage flow. The board recently hired Myers Environmental Services to run the sewage treatment plant after firing Gensel. Company owner George Myers said authority Chairman Gilbert Gleco instructed him to refer all questions to Gleco. Attempts to reach Gleco were unsuccessful.

County levee fee bills to stay same

1-800 Continued from Page 1A

Communications has quietly gained control over nearly a quarter of all the 1-800 numbers in the U.S. and Canada, often by grabbing them the moment they are relinquished by previous users. As of March, it administered more 800 numbers than any other company, including Verizon and AT&T. And many, if not most, of those 1.7 million numbers appear to be used for one thing: redirecting callers to a phone-sex service. Dial 1-800-Chicago and instead of reaching a tourism hotline for the Windy City, you will hear a woman offering “one-on-one talk with a nasty girl” for $2.99 per minute. A similar thing happens if you punch in the initial digits of 1800-Metallica, 1-800-Cadillac, 1800-Minolta, 1-800-Cameras, 1800-Worship or 1-800-Whirlpool. All those numbers contain messages redirecting callers to erotic chat lines operated by National A-1 Advertising, a company that shares an office building with PrimeTel, has common ownership and lists many of the same people as executives or business contacts. Many people who mistakenly dial a phone-sex line probably just get red-faced and hang up as quickly as possible. Others apparently respond to the come-on and supply their credit card number. “I guess enough people go for it that it makes business sense,” said Aelea Christofferson, president of ATL Communications, another company that specializes in tollfree services. Capturing callers who have reached the wrong number — whether because they punched an incorrect digit or dialed a number without realizing it had changed hands — is a “big new industry,” she said. Founded in 1995, PrimeTel is one of around 400 companies registered as toll-free service providers for the U.S. and Canada. That gives it the same power to reserve and assign unused toll-free numbers as big phone companies with millions of customers. But PrimeTel appears to be amassing numbers predominantly for one closely related partner, National A-1. There is nothing illegal about using toll-free phone services to promote adult entertainment, and callers aren’t charged unless they supply their credit card information.

The toll-free number for Glenn Noyes’ business, Patriot Auto Services, in Edgewater, Md., was mistakenly canceled. Calls were later redirected to an erotic chat service.

Over the years, though, PrimeTel has been hit with lawsuits and complaints alleging that it is violating federal rules banning tollfree service providers from hoarding digits. Federal Communications Commission rules say that “routing multiple toll-free numbers to a single toll-free subscriber” is usually considered hoarding. The FCC has never taken formal action against PrimeTel or National A-1, although federal authorities have expressed renewed interest lately in companies that handle toll-free numbers. In the fall, authorities sent subpoenas to several, including PrimeTel, asking for information on how they acquire numbers and why. And in October, federal agents and Philadelphia police spent two days removing records from National A-1’s office suite, although it is unclear if the action was related to the phone business. The man listed on many government records as the top executive at PrimeTel and National A-1, Richard Cohen, declined interview requests. A lawyer for both companies, Charles Helein, would not discuss their business dealings in detail but said PrimeTel isn’t breaking any rules or engaging in prohibited practices such as selling numbers or obtaining ones it doesn’t intend to use. “They are extremely sensitive to the FCC. ... They wouldn’t have them if they didn’t need them,” Helein said of PrimeTel’s huge pool of numbers. He said the company’s large share hasn’t caused any shortages: “Everybody’s got Ugly’s, the former bar owned by Skrepenak’s father. Skrepenak is serving a two-year sentence in a federal prison in West Virginia for accepting a kickback from a local businessman. The board voted unanimously to have Taroli send Greco another letter requesting the removal of the trailers, one of which was filled with cardboard boxes and had a rear door missing on Tuesday afternoon. Greco did not return a call seeking comment. In other business, the board: • Approved a $50,000 payment to No. 1 Contracting for the

all the numbers they need.” Helein said the raid last fall was not aimed at PrimeTel. National A-1and its owners have a variety of business enterprises headquartered at the same address, including a website sometimes used by prostitutes to advertise their services. According to a database maintained by an industry organization, PrimeTel was listed as the administrator of record for at least 1,667,000 out of around 7.87 million active 800 numbers as of this March. Industry experts said PrimeTel also holds a dominant share of numbers with other tollfree codes, like 888 and 866, giving it several million numbers overall. Sex isn’t the only business. Some numbers reach advertisements for a mortgage brokerage based in New Jersey. Others promote a dieting website or a travel reservation service. Those in-

stances appear to be outnumbered by ones in which callers reach a phone-sex solicitation. Critics of the company say it isn’t the sex that bothers them, but the acquisition of so many numbers. Bill Quimby, whose company, TollFreeNumbers.com, specializes in helping businesses obtain easy-to-remember digits to connect with customers, said it can be a challenge to find a good match because PrimeTel has gobbled up such an outsized share of the supply. “They started by getting numbers for phone sex, then getting good numbers in general, then they started taking all phone numbers,” he said. A spokesman for the FCC, David Fiske, would not comment on whether the agency had ever examined PrimeTel’s activities but said the commission is actively enforcing rules on number hoarding. PrimeTel appears to have benefited by grabbing numbers associated with famous names, like 1800-Beatles, or numbers that have recently been canceled but are still advertised widely. From the late 1980s until around 2005, teenagers who dialed the national hotline used by Teens Teaching AIDS Prevention would reach a call center in Kansas City, Mo., where other youths were waiting to answer questions about the disease. When that program ended, the number was soon routed to one of National A-1’s sex lines. But the AIDS hotline number is still publicized by public health groups.

emergency repair of a retaining wall that supports a railroad bed downstream from Riverfront Park and Cooper’s Seafood Restaurant in Pittston. • Approved a $52,000 counter-offer to Ross Spengler, of Waterfront Professional Park, for the sale of authority property near the Waterfront Complex in Plains Township. Spengler’s ap-

praisal was for $22,000 and he offered $30,000. The authority had an appraisal for $72,000. • Approved leasing 10 acres of land in Ashley Yards to American Rock Salt for $5,000 per month. • Approved buying a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup from Stephen Rish of Lehman Township for $23,000.

Over the years, PrimeTel has been hit with lawsuits and complaints alleging that it is violating federal rules banning toll-free service providers from hoarding digits. Federal Communications Commission rules say that “routing multiple toll-free numbers to a single toll-free subscriber” is usually considered hoarding. The FCC has never taken formal action against PrimeTel or National A-1.

The Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority will be mailing out levee fee bills to residents in the flood plain around the beginning of May, with no change to the fee structure or amount. The authority board on Tuesday voted unanimously to adopt the 2011 fee schedule, which keeps the annual fees between $46.85 and $93.70 for residential properties and between $140.55 and $676.44 for commercial properties. Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena said the fee schedule is expected to bring in about $1.3 million in revenue this year, with about $728,000 of that coming from 12,390 residential properties and the remainder coming from 1,829 commercial properties. Brozena said removal of some

properties from flood plain classification over the past year equates to a loss in revenue of about $5,000. The board also voted to advertise for electrical testing of pump stations and to advertise for the Mill Creek Elevated Flood Plain Project in Avoca, Duryea and Moosic. Brozena told the board the pump stations have been under heavy use this spring because of the high amount of rainfall. Manning the stations in 2010 cost the authority about $9,700 in overtime; manning the stations so far this year cost more than $5,000 in overtime, he said. Brozena also told the board a part of the state Department of Environmental Protection 201112 budget from which the authority has received between $250,000 and $500,000 in grants over the last 10 years was cut from $2.5 million to zero. “We are working with the Sunbury flood protection people as well as some others in lobbying the state representatives and senators to reinstate that funding,” he said.

WASHINGTON — Young adults say high schools are failing to give students a solid footing for the working world or strong guidance toward college, at a time when many fear graduation means tumbling into an economic black hole. Students who make it to college are happy with the education they get there, an Associated Press-Viacom poll says. Most of the 18- to 24-year-olds surveyed gave high schools low grades for things that would ease the way to college: A majority say their school wasn’t good at helping them choose a field of study, aiding them in finding the right college or vocational school or assisting them in coming up with

choose a future career. They also give high schools low marks on exposing them to the latest technology in their field and helping them get work experience, according to the poll conducted in partnership with Stanford University. Learning real-life job skills is important to students such as Mary Margaret Rice, 18, who likes her regional vocational high school in Wakefield, Mass. "I’m getting training to weld," she said. Overall, only 4 in 10 young people voice strong satisfaction with their high school education. About as many are “somewhat satisfied.” Almost a fifth are unsatisfied — twice as many as expressed unhappiness with college. The one category where young people rated high schools best was preparing them for further education: 56 percent say their school did a good or excellent job

at that. Those who went on to college or trade school gave their high schools better marks than those who didn’t. The bulk of college students — 6 in 10 — declare themselves either “very” or “extremely” pleased with their higher education. Most say a career-focused college education is a high priority, and students feel their schools are providing it. Six in 10 even say their college was “excellent” or “good” at helping them find money to pay for their education. The AP-Viacom telephone survey of 1,104 adults ages 18-24 was conducted Feb. 18-March 6 by GfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate Communications. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Stanford University’s participation in this project was made possible by a grant from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

ready are enthusiastic about higher education. Two-thirds say students should aim for college, even if they aren’t sure yet what career they want to pursue. Almost as many say they want to get at least a four-year degree themselves. The majority of high school students probably won’t end up with a college degree, however. Among those a few years ahead of them — today’s 25- to 34-yearolds — only about a third hold a bachelor’s or higher degree, according to the Census Bureau. Less than 10 percent get an associate’s degree. So getting students ready for work remains central to high schools’ mission. And most young people say their school didn’t do a good job of preparing them for work or helping them

HANOVER TWP. – A man was arraigned Tuesday on charges he stole a cell phone from a restaurant. Township police charged Michael Whitehead, 32, of WilkesBarre, with theft for stealing a cell phone from the counter at China House Buffet, Carey Avenue, on March 30, according a news release. Whitehead was arraigned by District Judge Joseph Halesey and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. • Police cited Patricia Thomas, 46, of Wilkes-Barre, on charges she caused damage to unattended property and left the scene of an accident Tuesday after she allegedly crashed her car into a parked vehicle on Lee Park Avenue at approximately 9:55 p.m. Police said the occupants of Thomas’ vehicle fled the scene of the accident but that she admitted being the driver of the vehicle to police.

“I’ve always admired him after what he went through 22 years ago,” Owens said. “He wrote what he believed in and had to go into hiding, and he emerged an even stronger writer. As much as I wanted to go home and take a nap after teaching all day, I wasn’t going to miss hearing him speak.” Jacqueline Debo of Pringle said she frequently comes to hear speakers at Wilkes. “Wilkes gives us this great opportunity to expand our minds,” she said. “They bring in such good people to speak. He was so very good.”

Normal office hours are every Thursday, 6 to 8 p.m. To arrange an appointment for another time, contact Charles Boyd at 655-4401. Call if special arrangements are needed to pick up tax payments. LUZERNE – Council recently approved a motion to consider the acceptance of applicants for part-time chief of police and part-time officers. Also, acceptance of applications for part-time secretary was also on the agenda but later dismissed due to uncertainty as to exactly what qualifications that applicant should possess. In last month’s borough meeting, the council authorized the use of a temp agency, Action, to fill the recently vacated secretary position. The council approved the May roster for its police force and its hourly wages. The council followed suit in the countywide ban on bath salts in stores, motioning to remove illegal bath salts from borough stores. Additionally, the council motioned to increase its donation to the Toby’s Creek Trout Tournament for Kids from $100 to $200. The annual event will take place May 14.

two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count each of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of a small amount of marijuana to Luzerne County Court. Police allege they found a large amount of heroin inside Miller’s residence after executing a search warrant on April 11, according to the criminal complaint.

SCRANTON – An attorney for the former owner of a title search company who admitted stealing nearly $2 million from clients has asked a judge to depart from federal sentencing guidelines that suggest a sentence in the case of 51 to 63 months in prison. In a pre-sentence memorandum filed Tuesday, attorney Marc Neff said Elizabeth Sichler has shown extreme remorse for her crimes. He asks U.S. District Judge William Nealon to consider that Sichler, who was involved in many volunteer activities, had lived an exemplary life prior to the thefts. Sichler, 58, of Harveys Lake, is scheduled to be sentenced April 28 for her guilty plea to one count of wire fraud. Federal prosecutors said she bilked dozens of clients who had utilized her now defunct title search company, Priority Search, to handle the real estate closings on their properties. The investigation began in 2008 after clients complained she had failed to pay off mortgages and other debts associated with property transactions. The thefts, which occurred from July 2005 to November 2008, entailed 58 property transactions affecting 92 victims for a

and the fact she received a sentence enhancement because the offense involved a violation of public trust. The guideline range is advisory, however, meaning Nealon could sentence Sichler to less time or up Federal prose- to the maximum, which is cutors said 20 years in prisshe bilked on and a dozens of $250,000 fine. In his memoclients who randum, Neff had utilized asks Nealon to her now dego below the funct title guidelines, noting that the search comcharges against pany… Sichler have taken a “tremendous emotional and physical toll” on her. Sichler was once prominent in political circles, serving as vice chairwoman of the Luzerne County Republican Party – a post she resigned once news of the investigation into her company became public in 2008. “The period that has elapsed since the onset of this investigation, the uncertainty of her future, the public humiliation and her personal shame and embarrassment have essentially destroyed her life,” Neff says. “She prays this honorable court will see the good that she has done in her life, recognize the depth of her remorse and impose a just and fair punishment.”

Traditional bath salts for the tub sell for about $2, while the synthetic substance sells around $40 for a half-gram. The temporary injunction signed by Judge David W. Lupas comes at a time when the state Senate is debating a bill that would add bath salts chemicals to the state’s controlled substance act. “This is just a stopgap measure,” Musto Carroll said. “We are waiting on the Legislature to enact a law (that) would prohibit the sale and use of bath salts. We are hoping that will happen very quickly. Then we can enforce the drug laws against these people who continue to use these chemicals. “Law enforcement needs this to happen as quickly as possible,” she added. It took several weeks for Musto Carroll to prepare to file the injunction request. She first had to publicly ask merchants to remove bath salts from shelves. Merchants were invited along with law enforcement agencies to a conference held April 8 on

Locally, there have been many bath salts users arrested for ancillary crimes or who required police response. According to arrest and court records: • A couple in West Pittston hallucinating on bath salts were charged with child endangerment when they believed 90 people were living in the walls of their apartment and using knives to stab the walls. • Two women were charged with endangering people, including to children, when they were high on bath salts and driving a vehicle in Wilkes-Barre. • A state police criminal commander said troopers encountered a man who had disrobed and threatened to harm himself while running in traffic on the Nanticoke-West Nanticoke Bridge. • Scranton police believe Ryan Foley, 25, was high on bath salts when he allegedly broke into St. Ann’s Monastery and attacked a sleeping priest on March 8. • Kingston police recently encountered a man they say was under the influence of bath salts yelling into his hand believing he had a cell phone. The man was arrested on a summary disorderly conduct • Avoca police arrested a man who they allege was peeking into an occupied house looking for a place to ingest bath salts late Friday night.

bath salts. After the public request to remove bath salts from shelves and the conference, police officers then visited merchants in an attempt to buy bath salts. Those named in the injunction sold bath salts despite the request to stop, Musto Carroll said. “A few weeks ago, we asked the merchants to please stop selling these products. Still, some businesses continue to put their profit margins above the safety of the public and continue to sell these drugs. As a result, purchases were made, chemicals were tested and we are able to obtain the temporary injunction this morning,” Musto Carroll explained. A violation of the temporary injunction can result in civil pe-

nalties of $1,000 per sale and criminal penalties under the state’s nuisance statute of up to two years in jail and a $5,000 fine. Bath salts are synthetic stimulates that contain various amphetamine-like chemicals that result in experiencing extreme paranoia, hallucinations, rapid heart rate, suicidal thoughts, insomnia and kidney failure, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Musto Carroll said merchants looking to properly dispose of synthetic bath salts can call her office at 825-1674. “We will pick up those chemicals and we will have them destroyed,” she said. Edward Lewis, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 829-7196.

Editorial

OTHER OPINION: PROPOSED DUTY

Bag tax unlikely to boost recycling

A

S TAXES GO, a 2cent levy isn’t likely to fall into the category of burdensome. Nevertheless state Sen. Daylin Leach’s proposal to charge consumers for the plastic bags they receive at grocery and department stores is likely to be met with a great deal of opposition. And should it pass, its impact will be anybody’s guess. Leach, D-Montgomery County, has introduced legislation that would impose a 2cent tax on every plastic bag used in Pennsylvania, with the revenue used to promote statewide recycling efforts. Several states, including Colorado, Maryland, Texas and Virginia, have debated the wisdom of such a bag tax or of banning their use entirely. Thus far, however, no state has gone so far to implement the levy or prohibit them.

According the American Chemistry Council, more than 90 percent of Americans already find some way to reuse their plastic bags. But eventually even most of the reused bags end up being thrown away rather than recycled. Recycling plastic bags is a worthy goal, one that almost everyone can support. Keeping plastic bags out of trees, streams and fields is an even more-worthy goal. But in today’s throw-away society, where some folks think nothing of spending $350 on the latest gadget to replace something that works just fine and is less than a year old, does anyone really think that a 2-cent tax on a plastic bag will stop some thoughtless cretin from tossing one out the car window?

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We gave a small town ... the opportunity to speak out. And that’s what newspapers do.” Ruben Vives The Los Angeles Times reporter, 32, was among the editorial team awarded a Pulitzer Prize gold medal for public service on Monday for revealing official corruption in Bell, Calif. That community’s officials secretly had enriched themselves with extravagant salaries and benefits while illegally raising taxes on the city’s residents, who are among the poorest in Los Angeles County.

Leighton is considered best person for the job

A

n election is a job application. As potential employers, we need to hire the most qualified person for the job. As voters, we need to take this decision seriously. Wilkes-Barre has an annual budget of about $44 million, hundreds of employees and responsibilities of which most of us would never even think. Balancing these facets takes enormous skill, knowledge and ability. It is tempting to believe that anyone can come into office with a single vision of what is right and fix a broken system, but this is not true. It takes someone with real experience in all aspects of government to do the job right. Mayor Tom Leighton is the only candidate qualified in dealing with any of these issues. If we are to accept the job application of someone to run our city, it should be from the person who is the most qualified and experienced. James Casey Wilkes-Barre

Human Services fund critical to serve area

I

write with grave concern about Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed elimination of the Human Services Development Fund in his proposed state budget for fiscal year 2011-12. The funds are greatly instrumental in preventing individuals from “falling between the cracks.” One of the programs that would be severely impacted is Help Line, the aroundthe-clock information/referral/crisis access service that responds to residents of Luzerne and Wyoming counties. Last year, Help Line responded to 84,322 caller inquiries, ranging from requests for emergency energy assistance by elderly people who have run out of heating fuel to requests for obtaining food for infants. The HSDF is a flexible fund that allows county discretion in how the funds should be used to serve people from 18 to 59 years of age. The timely intervention and ability to serve people in a flexible way, as provided by the HSDF, has an inherent long-term value of saving dollars. Without the availability of services provided by these funds, individuals have a greater risk of not staying in their own homes and being placed in longer-term care. For example, Help Line’s “RUOK” telephone reassurance program places nearly 8,000 calls per year to the frail and disabled. The calls arrive at a pre-arranged time with the client and are monitored by the Help Line staff. If the client does not answer the phone or answers with a call for help, the Help Line worker calls an emergency contact to check on the caller. Through the years, the program literally

has saved the lives of dozens of people. With the proposed elimination of HSDF, however, those calls will cease to be made. It is these kinds of services that Gov. Corbett has made a commitment to endorse, thereby preventing a greater concentration on long-term services that are more expensive and take the person away from his or her community. I believe the vision of the governor is to do everything possible to maintain people in their own communities. Part of that vision should be to recognize that the Human Services Development Fund supports his plan. I urge you to contact your state legislators and ask them to negotiate the restoration of the Human Services Development Fund.

Geisinger celebrating 30 years of patient care

T

oday marks the 30th anniversary of Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. The medical center has grown from a quality community hospital to a provider of advanced services to care for even the most seriously and critically ill patients right here in our community. Thanks to outstanding community support and the help of many talented professionals, Geisinger Wyoming Valley’s Plains Township campus has more than doubled in size. The Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center opened in 1992 and expanded in 2009 to enhance the delivery of stateof-the-art cancer care. The Richard and Marion Pearsall Heart Hospital opened in 2001, dedicated entirely to the care of patients with a wide variety of heart conditions. Our Critical Care Building opened in 2008 with an expanded emergency department and Luzerne County’s only trauma center. The building also includes 12 new operating suites equipped with robotic and other technology required for sophisticated heart, neuro, ortho and other surgeries, and is the setting for Northeastern Pennsylvania’s only transplant program. Most recently, in 2010, we began an expansion project that will be home to Luzerne County’s first neonatal intensive

care unit. When completed later this year, it will bring yet another valuable and specialized medical service closer to the communities we serve. We also added a second campus in South Wilkes-Barre that specializes in ambulatory care, same-day surgery, rehabilitation and urgent medical services. We are proud that Geisinger Wyoming Valley’s two area campuses offer nearly every medical specialty and service close to home. Thank you to all of the patients, families, area physicians, employees, volunteers and auxiliary members who have made our first 30 years of service successful. We look forward to a long future of providing high quality health care to the residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Dr. Steven B.

George White gives a presentation of proposed trails in the Greater Wilkes-Barre area Tuesday at Wilkes University.

Trail plan aims to link sites Kingston and Wilkes-Barre master trail proposals explained at Wilkes event.

George White goes over proposed trails in the Kingston area Tuesday at Wilkes University. The Kingston Area Trail will run northeast into Wyoming and southwest into Larksville.

WILKES-BARRE – Already matching up his current bike route with proposed trail expansion, avid bicyclist Dr. John Koch of Wilkes University was excited about the concept of the trail and greenway expansion project unveiled on Tuesday night. An event titled “Celebrating Luzerne County’s Great Trails and Greenways” was held 7 to 9 p.m. in the ballroom of the Henry Student Center at Wilkes. It goal was to roll out two master plans, the Kingston master trail proposal and Wilkes-Barre master trail proposal, and celebrate the current trail systems. Other trail organizations, such as the Anthracite Scenic Trails Association, the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, the Riverfront Parks and Wyoming Valley Riverfest among others were on hand to show off the current trails and amenities. Koch, who said he can ride about 50 miles or more in a day, said the idea of linking trails together to give one safe path through communities is great. “I know it will not happen overnight,” he said. “But it is nice to see the overall goal.” George White, design consultant on the project, walked about 50 people through the Kingston and Wilkes-Barre master plans. There is no determined start date on the plans. The date de-

connect to a proposed Carey Avenue connector trail, which then would lead from Hanover Township into Wilkes-Barre’s planned D&L Black Diamond trail and end at the old train station off WilkesBarre Boulevard. Ted Kross, of the city Department of Health, said plans to transform the old station into a welcome center for Wilkes-Barre would be a convenient area for trails to meet. The master plan contains several proposed and planned trails. George White, design consultant, said planned trails were previously recommended and proposed trails are new to the overall plan. Proposed trails would include: D&L Black Diamond, Ridge to River Trail, Luzerne County National Recreation Trail, Parsons Trail, South Sherman Street Trail and Bikeway, East End Trail and

pends on funding and volunteerism from local communities. “The main focus will be the waterfront,” White said. When planning out the routes, he said, he started with an old railroad map from 1892 and overlaid it with current maps. “The coal era left behind railroad beds and canals,” he said. “You have some great opportunities to do some great things with trails. It could become a real destination for hikers, joggers and bicyclists.” Examining the maps, White said, everything amazingly fits together. Through the connections, the trails can link parks, playgrounds, schools and colleges. The Kingston Master Plan will consist of four main trail proposals, including the Back Mountain Extension, Kingston Area Trail, the Larksville Connector Trail and the Backroad Bike Route. Starting with the end of the Back Mountain Trail in Luzerne, White said, the goal is to connect this trail to the Luzerne County Levee Trail. This will be done by utilizing Bikeway, Plains Trail, Carey Avenue Connector Trail, and the Newtown Trail. In February, city officials adopted the proposed master plan. Kross said the city had given $25,000, which it received through a grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, to cover research and consulting fees. Other funding for research and planning was provided by the Anthracite Scenic Trail Association, the Delaware and Leigh National Heritage Corridor, the Wyoming Valley Wellness Trails Partnership, and the Edith Reynolds Trust. White said the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources funded the majority of the study. Details on state money spent were not available Tuesday. White said he proposes to use about 10 to 15 miles of unused rail lines as possible trail routes. In some locations the trail might “piggyback along low-use (active) lines,” he said. White examined railroad maps

passages under the Cross Valley Expressway running parallel to Union Street. The trail will then pick up on an abandoned railroad reaching the Kingston Recreation Center. Showing a map, White described how the levee trial will connect to the Kingston Trail and the Susquehanna Warrior Run trail, which extends into Shickshinny. The Kingston Area Trail will run northeast into Wyoming and southwest into Larksville. The Larksville Connector Trail will run behind Romanoskey Park and link up to the Backroad Bike Route running parallel to Courtdale Avenue. The Wilkes-Barre Master Plan consists of nine proposed trails that will utilize old railroad beds, smaller levee systems and sidewalks. White said the trail systems will link communities in a safe manner. Wilkes-Barre resident Allen Kotansky, formerly of Hazleton, said he has not used the trail systems yet, but after seeing the information, is anxious to get out there and enjoy them. dating back to 1892 to identify possible railroad beds, and then he went looking for them. The low grade of railroad beds will provide an even surface to walk or bike ride. “There is a spider web of old railroad lines,” he said. “The availability of the railroad beds made the project possible.” The use of the old beds will not affect any future use of the current railroad system. He explained that years ago there were separate rail lines used for a specific purpose such as for coal, freight, passengers, timber and ice harvesting. “Some have not been used for100 years,” White said. The large project does not have a determined timeline yet. Kross estimates it could take five to 10 years before the entire project is completed. White said identifying possible trails and rolling out the proposed plan to gain public support is the first step. The second, he said, is finding funding to make the plan become a reality.

Scott Cannon of Plymouth speaks during public comment on the topic of treating water used in the fracking process for extracting natural gas from the ground. Cannon was making his comments at Tuesday’s Wyoming Valley Sewer Authority meeting in Hanover Township.

What life are they going to have?” Leeann Wallace, a resident of the Bresleau section of Hanover Township and head of a newlyformed citizens group opposing the plan, asked individual members of the board questions about frack water treatment, which they couldn’t answer. “They’re supposed to be educating their townships,” Wallace said. “How can they educate their townships when they don’t know what’s going on?” Minora called Wallace’s method of questioning unfair and said the board hired his firm to conduct the feasibility study. Minora said 80 percent of the water treated at the plant would be returned to drillers for reuse in drilling, and the remaining 20 percent would be treated a second time using a reverse osmosis process that removes salt and dissolved solids from the water. “It’s much cleaner than the treated effluent that we currently discharge, and it’s cleaner than the water that’s already in the Susquehanna,” he said, adding that many of the chemicals that would be removed from the water are found in much higher concentrations in gasoline and diesel fuel than they are in frack water. The WVSA is considering three options for bringing water to the plant for treatment: pipe, rail and trucking. If trucks are used, the authority is planning

drilling wastewater is treated by sewer authorities, largely in western Pennsylvania, and discharged into rivers. Those wastewater plants, however, are ill-equipped to remove all the pollutants, and the state still allows hundreds of millions of gallons of the partially treated wastewater to be discharged into rivers from which communities draw drinking water. The state Department of Environmental Protection cited elevated levels of bromide in rivers in western Pennsylvania in its announcement. "Now is the time to take action to end this practice," acting DEP Secretary Michael Krancer said in a statement Tuesday. Bromide is a salt that later reacts with the chlorine disinfectants used by drinking water sys-

to construct a road along the rear edge of Cohen Recycling Resources leading from the San Souci Parkway to WVSA Drive, so that no vehicles headed to the plant would pass by homes in the neighborhood around the authority. He also said building the plant would generate income for the authority that would provide funding to build EPA upgrades at the current WVSA facility and alleviate the need for future rate increases. It would also directly add as many as 20 jobs in the community as well as indirectly create jobs for truck drivers, inject money into the local economy and improve road conditions in the township, Minora said. Audience members questioned all those points, at times

booing Minora and the board and shouting out of turn. “We still live in a democracy, and if the people of Hanover don’t want this… being crammed down their throats, they should have the opportunity to say no, and the board should listen,” Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition founder Tom Jiunta said after the meeting. Minora and board Chairman James Hankey said they would take opposition to the plan voiced at the meeting into consideration. “You’ve got the gas people here and the anti-gas people here, and somewhere in the middle, there’s the truth,” Hankey said after the meeting. “Everybody has their spin on things.”

tems and creates trihalomethanes. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that trihalomethanes can be harmful to people who drink water with elevated levels of the chemical for many years. Officials at Pittsburgh-area drinking water authorities in Beaver Falls and Fredericktown say their facilities have flunked tests for trihalomethanes in the past couple years. Complicating the matter is that, in addition to gas drilling, Pennsylvania’s multitude of acid-leaching, abandoned coal mines and other industrial sources are also a major factor in the high salt levels that lead to trihalomethanes in drinking water. The state imposed tougher wastewater treatment standards for drilling wastewater in August, although it still allowed facilities that had been permitted to accept drilling wastewater before August to continue accepting limited amounts under the

same treatment standards. Fifteen of those 27 facilities that were grandfathered under the August rules were still accepting the wastewater, the DEP said. "While there are several possible sources for bromide other than shale drilling wastewater, we believe that if operators would stop giving wastewater to facilities that continue to accept it under the special provision, bromide concentrations would quickly and significantly decrease," Krancer said in the statement. Kathryn Klaber, president of the industry’s Marcellus Shale Coalition, said she would provide specifics in the coming days about actions that coalition members will take in an effort to reduce the amount of bromide that ends up in the state’s rivers. Her organization came to that conclusion after seeing new research from Carnegie Mellon University and the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority, Klaber said.

RIGHTING THE SHIP

Dickerson, Yankees triumph The SWB outfielder came through with three hits to fuel a road victory. By PAUL SOKOLOSKI psokoloski@timesleader.com

ALLENTOWN — Right out of the gates, Chris Dickerson has been almost as cold as the earlyseason weather. When it heats up, so does he. Dickerson ripped three hits and accounted for three runs Tuesday and the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees finally got a fantastic pitching performance from phenom David Phelps to tame YANKEES the Lehigh Valley IronPigs 5-2 at Coca-Cola Park. IRONPIGS “Still a work in progress,” Dickerson said of his swing, which led him straight to a subpar .220 batting average entering Tuesday. “It’s been cold. But I think when it warms up, I’ll be fine. “Got to get above that 50-degree level.” Dickerson sure leveled off against the IronPigs. He smoked a one-out double and scored ahead of Justin Maxwell’s booming two-run homer in the fourth inning, giving the Yankees a 2-0 lead. “He’s going to hit,” Yankees manager Dave Miley said. “He can do some different things.” After Lehigh Valley pulled within 3-2, Dickerson drilled his second double of the game to drive home Jorge Vazquez with an insurance run in the eighth inning. And just for good measure, Dickerson’s ensuing baserunning blunder turned into good fortune for the Yankees when IronPigs pitcher Chance Chapman threw a pickoff play away, bringing Dickerson home with the game’s final run. “That’s something I definitely need to clean up,” Dickerson said of his baserunning, which got him caught in a rundown and tagged out in a game Monday. But Dickerson also laced a hard single to right in the second inning, using a 3-for-4 performance to raise his batting average to a more-respectable .267. For the record, the game-time temperature was right at 50 degrees. “I really haven’t panicked at

That was evident when Geoff Walker yapped at Tokarski as he skated off the ice during pregame warmups and later when Keven Veilleux shoved Labrie as they lined up for the opening faceoff. “We felt the need to get to our game,” Penguins captain Ryan Craig said. “That was the urgency we felt.

It started when Norfolk’s Pierre-Cedric Labrie was given a double-minor for high-sticking when he got his stick up on Steve Wagner.

This evening’s feature race takes place in the 10th, with Mystery Photo the standout trotter in a field of nine. The 4-year-old son of S J’s Photo won upon arrival last week, dusting a field of eight others in 1:55.1.

PHILADELPHIA — Randy Wolf pitched six crisp innings, Ryan Braun and Casey McGehee homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies 9-0 Tuesday night.

They’ll try to complete a three-game sweep on Wednesday afternoon when Cliff Lee takes the mound for Philadelphia. Wolf (2-2) allowed two hits, struck out five and walked three against his former team. The left-hander was Philadelphia’s ace in the early 2000s. Jimmy Rollins had a bunt single in the first and Shane Victorino hit a double in the third for the Phillies’ only hits of the game. Sean Green, Zach Braddock and Mike McClendon each pitched an inning to finish up.

BALTIMORE — Matt Wieters drove in four runs, Vladimir Guerrero hit a three-run homer, and the Baltimore Orioles snapped an eight-game losing streak by defeating Carl Pavano and the Minnesota Twins. Jake Arrieta (2-1) pitched six innings of four-hit ball for the Orioles, who built an 8-0 lead in the fifth inning and coasted to their first win in 10 days after a 6-1 start. The 11 runs were a season high, and all of them came with two outs. Pavano (1-2) gave up seven earned runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings. The right-hander had allowed only one run in his previous 16 innings. Wieters hit an RBI single in the third inning, a three-run double in the fifth and scored a career-high three runs.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Gordon had two hits and stretched his hitting streak to 13 games and left-hander Bruce Chen went seven strong innings, leading the Kansas City Royals past the Cleveland Indians on a cold and blustery. Chen (3-0) beat the Indians for the fourth straight time. He stretched his personal winning streak, dating to last season, to seven games over 11 starts. Jeanmar Gomez (0-1), making his first major league start after being called up from Triple-A Columbus earlier in the day, took the loss.

Gillick tours Cooperstown The Associated Press

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Pat Gillick spent his professional career evaluating baseball talent, and his skill at the job took him all the way to Cooperstown. So when Gillick toured the Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday in preparation for his July 24 induction, his scouting instincts took over. “There’s a lot of guys here with high leg kicks,” he said while looking at artifacts from Sandy Koufax and other Hall of Fame pitchers. “You just don’t see that anymore.” Gillick represents a baseball rarity: a Hall of Fame general manager. The architect of two World Series champions in Toronto and another in Philadelphia, Gillick was elected to the Hall of Fame in December by the expansion era committee and will be enshrined in Cooperstown along with Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven. Gillick is one of four men who served primarily as team builders — along with Ed Barrow, Branch Rickey and George Weiss — to be elected to the Hall and will be the 32nd executive enshrined. “You never know when you’re building a team,” Gillick said as he examined an exhibit dedicated to the Blue Jays teams that won back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. “You hope, but you never know.” Gillick always seemed to know. As general manager for 27 seasons with the Blue Jays, Orioles, Mariners and Phillies, his teams finished .500 or better 20 times and advanced to the postseason 11 times. He remains with the Phillies as the team’s senior advisor to the president and general manager after building the Philadelphia squad that won the 2008 World Series. Starting his career as a pitcher, Gillick toiled in the minor leagues from 1959-63 before landing a job with the front office of the then-Houston Colt .45s. On Tuesday in the Hall of Fame’s Giamatti Research Center, Gillick examined a scouting report on him that read: “Good curveball, lots of moxie.” But behind the scenes in the world of scouting, Gillick carved his Hall of Fame career. He was promoted to Astros’ scouting director in 1974, then moved on to the Yankees in 1975-76 before landing with the Blue Jays in 1977. He was named the Jays’ general manager in 1978, staying through 1994 before leading the Orioles (1996-98), Mariners (2000-03) and Phillies (2006-08). “I think that was what brought back the most memories today, seeing the Colt .45s jersey. That brought me back to where I started,” Gillick said. “That and the Blue Jays (exhibit), with Joe Carter’s bat (that Carter used to hit his World Series-clinching home run in 1992). That was a pretty special moment.” Gillick spent most of his career guiding teams into the national spotlight.

Bolland, Chicago stay alive

Continued from Page 1B

The Associated Press

CHICAGO — Dave Bolland returned to the Chicago lineup after missing 17 games with a concussion and had a goal and three assists Tuesday night as the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks avoided being swept, routing the Vancouver Canucks 7-2. Vancouver still leads 3-1 in the first-round series that heads back to the Rogers Arena for Game 5 on Thursday night. Chicago’s Patrick Sharp scored two power-play goals in a chippy final period that featured pushing, shoving, jawing and a fight between Vancouver’s Kevin Bieska and Chicago’s Victor Stalberg. The Blackhawks got an offensive lift from their defensemen as Brian Campbell and Duncan Keith scored 17 seconds apart in a four-goal second period. Bryan Bickell had a goal 1:43 into the game as Chicago finally solved Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo, who may have been shaken up making a save late in the opening period. He was pulled in the final period. Michael Frolic scored on a breakway after a pass from Bolland to give Chicago a 5-1 lead in the second. Sharp’s first powerplay goal early in the third put the Blackhawks up five and just more than a minute later, with 15:55 left in the game, Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault replaced Luongo with Cory Schneider. Sami Salo scored on a power play for the Canucks in the first period and Daniel Sedin added a power-play goal on a tip-in in the final period. Chicago played without top defenseman Brent Seabrook, who was ruled out after taking a hard hit from Raffi Torres in Game 3, a blow to the head that many of the Blackhawks thought merited a suspension. And the Hawks took a few early shots at Torres, especially Keith, Seabrook’s usual mate on the blue line. With the game tied at 1-1 and seconds after a Chicago power play had expired, Campbell took a nifty pass from Patrick Kane and with Jonathan Toews in front of him, scored from the left circle to make it 2-1. And 17 seconds later, Keith rifled in a shot from between the circles for a 3-1 lead as the United Center erupted. Later in the period, Bolland picked up a loose puck in the left circle, made a nice fake and then scored Chicago’s third goal of the period for a 4-1 lead. Playing for the first time since March 9, Bolland later reached a loose puck and shoveled it up ice to Frolik, who then beat Luongo one-on-one to make it 5-1. Bickell, who missed Game 3 after hurting his wrist in Game 2, beat Bieska on a cut from the right wing, skated across the crease and tucked it in past Luongo for his first career playoff goal. But 3 minutes later, the Canucks got even. Salo’s long slap shot on the power play with Alexandre Burrows and Chris Higgins trying to screen Crawford appeared to hit Campbell and went in the net. Luoungo had 12 first-period saves. He had a nice stop on Stalberg’s rebound attempt from right in front and another save when the puck flew up in the air after a slapper from John Scott. But his best came in the final minute on a shot by Bickell when the Canucks goalie sat on the puck and with his arms pinned behind him kept it from going in. Luongo grimaced after the play and then skated gingerly to the bench at the end of the period. NOTES: Chicago G Crawford got a rare assist on Campell’s goal for making the initial pass to Kane. ... The four points were a career-high for Bolland. ... Torres and Chicago’s Scott were given 10-minute misconducts in the final period. ... Daniel Sedin has four goals in the four games.

Celtics take 2-0 lead The Associated Press

BOSTON — Kevin Garnett sank the go-ahead basket with 14 seconds left, then stole the ball as the Boston Celtics overcame Carmelo Anthony’s 42 points and beat the depleted New York Knicks 96-93 to take a 2-0 lead in their playoff series on Tuesday night. The Knicks played the entire second half without Amare Stoudemire, who had back spasms. Chauncey Billups missed the game with a sore left knee. Garnett hit the decisive jump hook after backing Jared Jeffries into the lane. The Knicks then got the ball to Anthony in the left corner, where he was double-teamed by Paul Pierce and Glen Davis. Anthony passed inside to Jeffries, but Garnett stole the ball and called timeout with 4 seconds remaining. The Knicks then fouled Delonte West, who made two free throws with 0.6 seconds to go. Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with a career playoff-high 30 points. Game 3 of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series is scheduled for Friday night in New York. Anthony matched his career playoff high for points and set a new high with 17 rebounds. Toney Douglas had 14 points in place of Billups, whose status for Game 3 was uncertain. Pierce had 20 points after missing his first five shots, and Ray Allen, who hit the game-winning 3-pointer in Boston’s 87-85 win in the opener, scored 18.

all,” Dickerson said. “It’s early. Just got to keep coming out, having confidence in myself and you’re going to succeed.” Phelps found success, too, holding the IronPigs to two hits through six dominant innings. He entered the game with an 0-2 record and a 7.20 ERA, but walked away with his first Triple-A victory of the season. “That’s more of what I expect of myself, for sure,” Phelps said.

Odom wins Sixth Man award LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lakers forward Lamar Odom has won the NBA’s Sixth Man award as the league’s top reserve. Odom’s selection by a media panel was announced Tuesday. Odom averaged 14.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3 assists per game this season while playing in every game for the Lakers. Odom was a starter for long stretches of the season while center Andrew Bynum was sidelined with injuries, but also came off the bench 47 times. Odom was a starter during his first nine NBA seasons with the Clippers, Heat and Lakers, but moved primarily to a reserve role during the 2008-09 season. The Lakers won the NBA championship that year and the next, with Odom coming off the bench for all but five of Los Angeles’ 46 playoff games. Odom is the first Lakers player to win the award, which began in 1983. Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford won it last season.

Anthony was the obvious choice to shoot on New York’s final possession. So Pierce and Davis swarmed him when he got the ball just inches from Boston’s bench, forcing him to pass to Jeffries, who tried an interior pass instead of going up with the shot. Magic 88, Hawks 82 ORLANDO, Fla. — Dwight Howard had 33 points and 19 rebounds, Jameer Nelson added 13 points and eight rebounds and the Orlando Magic held off the Atlanta How They Scored YANKEES FOURTH: Chris Dickerson drilled a one-out double into the right-center field gap, then Justin Maxwell lifted a booming two-run homer over the double-tier right field wall. YANKEES 2, IRONPIGS 0. IRONPIGS SIXTH: Josh Barfield rapped a single to right field, only the second hit of the game for Lehigh Valley. Erik Kratz drew a walk, and a curveball from Yankees starter David Phelps caught Rich Thompson on the foot to fill the bases with nobody out. Kevin Frandsen then grounded into a fielder’s choice, scoring Barfield. YANKEES 2, IRONPIGS 1. YANKEES SEVENTH: And the Yankees get the run right back. Dan Brewer laced a one-out single over outstretched second baseman Josh Barfield, then stole second. Brewer cruised home when Ramiro Pena slashed an oppositefield double down the left field line. YANKEES 3, IRONPIGS 1. IRONPIGS SEVENTH: Back and forth we go, as the stubborn IronPigs won’t go away. Ronnie Belliard smokes a leadoff double rolls to third when Brandon Moss beats out and infield hit, then rides home on a blooping, broken-bat single from Kratz. YANKEES 3, IRONPIGS 2. YANKEES EIGHTH: Jorge Vazquez was safe on an error, then Dickerson drove him home with a double to wrap up his three-hit night. Dickerson danced off second base a little too far and appeared trapped. But he turned bad into good for the Yankees when the throw to third base from pitcher Chance Champman sailed into left field, allowing Dickerson to score. YANKEES 5, IRONPIGS 2.

Hawks. The Magic evened the bestof-seven series, with Game 3 Friday night in Atlanta. Orlando used a 10-1 run to close the third quarter to take an 11-point lead into the fourth and fought off a late Atlanta charge down the stretch. After allowing the Hawks to become the first opponent in 16 straight playoff games to score 100 points against it in Game 1, Orlando’s defense tightened around Atlanta’s shooters in Game 2. The Hawks shot 39 percent. Jamal Crawford led Atlanta with 25 points and Josh Smith added 17. The Magic led 65-54 lead going into the fourth quarter. Joe Johnson’s basket cut the lead to 78-72, and he got another following an Orlando turnover to trim it to four points with 2:43 to play. A steal by the Hawks ended with a dunk by Al Horford to pull Atlanta within a basket. But Hedo Turkoglu got a friendly roll to push it back to four and Jason Richardson drilled 3-pointer that made it 83-76 with 1:08 remaining. Crawford dropped in a layup that made it 84-80, but Orlando was able to hit enough free throws the rest of the way to secure the victory. Orlando led 48-42 at halftime. The Hawks led by as many as 10 in the second quarter, 32-22, before a 12-2 run by the Magic tied it at 34-all. Howard had 10 points during the spurt, which included the Magic doing their best job of the series converting defensive stops into quick offense.

over Tokarski to give the Penguins a1-0 lead at17:58 of the first period. It was the Penguins’ first lead in the series. “That was the most important thing,” coach John Hynes said. “The fact that we got one early helped because we hadn’t had that in the first two games.” The Penguins’ goal wasn’t the only blow Norfolk suffered in the first period. Already missing forwards Mattias Ritola and Blair Jones – who were called up by Tampa Bay earlier in the day – the Admirals lost forwards Paul Szczechura and Chris Durno to injuries. Entering the second period with eight forwards, the Admirals gained a momentum boost during a power play when Stefano Giliati backhanded a rebound over Thiessen to even things up 1-1. But the Penguins had an answer, thanks to the four minutes of power-play time from Labrie’s double minor in the third period. Lerg said the Penguins were well aware of their power play struggles in the series, and they knew this was the best chance they had to end the slump. “Here’s our chance to step up,” Lerg said. “We need it and we stuck with it.” After Norfolk killed off the first two minutes of the double minor, the Penguins got their break when Lerg and Andrew Hutchinson rushed into the Norfolk end with speed. Hutchinson dished the puck across to Lerg, who skated wide and wristed the puck past Tokarski for the game-winning goal. “It wasn’t even a set-up play,” Lerg said. “When Hutch gave it to me the D was kind of sucked over to him. I just threw it on net.” The Penguins had one more hurdle to overcome when an a depleted Norfolk team refused to quit and forced a faceoff in the Penguins zone with 18 seconds

remaining. Craig took the draw and tied up his opponent long enough for the Penguins to force the Admirals to spend valuable time. Norfolk did manage a shot, which Thiessen saved, before the buzzer sounded. “It may not be pretty all the time, but we got the job done,” Craig said. “It was another battle and that’s what we expected.” NOTES •Center Joe Vitale missed Tuesday’s game to be with his wife who was expecting the birth of their child. Vitale was already in Norfolk when he learned that the baby was on the way. To get back home, he borrowed Penguins CEO Jeff Barrett’s car and drove back to Wilkes-Barre Tuesday morning. Vitale’s wife had a baby girl later in the day. •Other than Vitale, D Carl Sneep, D Viktor Ekbom, F Paul Thompson, C Andy Bathgate and F Ryan Schnell were scratched for the Penguins. •Tim Wallace made his return to the lineup after missing Games 1 and 2. •The Penguins stay in Norfolk to take on the Admirals tonight at 7:15.

ro. Closing the tournament with a 68 that marked her best round of the season, Woods shot a 5-under 208 at the par-71 course to claim a seven-stroke win. That lopsided margin of victory was reminiscent of the way Tiger used to dominate fields during his 71 career victories, including 14 majors. Describing their relationship as “decently close — as close as I am with any other uncle,” Cheyenne Woods said Tiger watched her victory on the Internet, sent her text messages and posted a congratulatory tweet after her victory. Though having the Woods name stitched onto her golf bag undoubtedly brings extra pressure, she insists coming from her family has been a positive. Her fa-

ther Earl Jr. is Tiger’s half-brother, and her paternal grandfather was Earl Sr. “It’s definitely gotten my name out there as a collegiate golfer about to turn pro next year. It’s a good thing to have,” Cheyenne Woods said. “It’s helped me grow as a person and a player, being able to handle the interviews, the cameras, the spotlight.” Said Wake Forest golf coach Dianne Dailey: “She’s just laid back — you don’t see her get bent out of shape about much. I don’t think her heart rate goes above 50.” There’s definitely a family resemblance between uncle and niece. It’s found in their faces, not necessarily in their playing styles. Cheyenne Woods says her swing compares more favorably to Ernie Els’ because it’s “nice and smooth, but still powerful.” Meanwhile, she says her uncle “is always hitting it, swinging out of his shoes, hitting it 400 yards.”

Dykstra not charged in stolen car case The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors have declined to file charges against former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra after he was arrested on suspicion of trying to buy a stolen car, authorities said Tuesday. Prosecutors are asking Los Angeles police for more information in regards to the investigation, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. It’s unknown whether charges could be filed against Dykstra at a later date. Dykstra, 48, has been in jail since last week awaiting word on whether prosecutors would file charges against him. Federal authorities have taken him into custody on a separate bankruptcy

charge. Dykstra was recently charged with embezzling money from a bankruptcy estate. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison. He could be in court as early as Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately known whether Dykstra had retained an attorney. Dykstra, who bought a mansion once owned by hockey star Wayne Gretzky, filed for bankruptcy two years ago, claiming he owed more than $31 million and had only $50,000 in assets. Federal prosecutors said that after filing, Dykstra hid, sold or destroyed more than $400,000 worth of items from the $18.5 million mansion without permission of a bankruptcy trustee. Dykstra spent 12 years in the big leagues and helped the Mets to the World Series championship in 1986.

Pack, Saints to open ’11 season “We have every intention of playing the full schedule and that’s why we’re releasing it as we normally do.”

A Christmas eve clash between the Giants and Jets highlights schedule.

Commissioner Roger Goodell On the upcoming NFL schedule

By SAM FARMER Los Angeles Times

The NFL on Tuesday released its 2011 schedule. Question is, should it be written in pencil? Commissioner Roger Goodell, for one, sounded encouraged after a day of mediation aimed at resolving a labor dispute that could put the season in peril. “We have every intention of playing the full schedule,” he said, “and that’s why we’re releasing it as we normally do.”

The season is scheduled to begin Sept. 8, at Green Bay, when the Packers host New Orleans, a game that pits the past two Super Bowl champions. The first Sunday night game is Dallas at the New York Jets, and the opening Monday night doubleheader features New England at Miami and Oakland at Denver. Among the other notable

games: The New York Giants and New York Jets will face each other on Christmas eve. Detroit will play host to Chicago on Oct. 10, the Lions’ first Monday game since they lost to St. Louis, 35-0, in 2001. For the fifth consecutive season, a regular-season game will be played in London. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the

Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 23. New England will play Indianapolis for the 12th time since 2002, counting the playoffs, the most times over that span for any nondivisional foe. In the prime-time Thanksgiving Day game, San Francisco will play at Baltimore. That matches new 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and his brother, John, coach of the Ravens. “It’s going to be historic,” John Harbaugh said in an NFL Network interview. “We’re still trying to talk our parents into coming. My dad and mom said they’re not going to be within three time zones of the game. We’ll get them there somehow.”

Minnesota coach Tubby Smith’s streak of 20-win seasons is over, as is the honeymoon he’s had with Gophers fans.

Tubby, Minnesota hope to rebound The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Tubby Smith’s fourth year at Minnesota was his most disappointing, stopping his streak of 17 straight 20-win seasons and leaving the stunned and depleted Gophers out of not only the NCAA tournament but the NIT. The streak was the longest active run among major college coaches. This was also the first time Smith missed the postseason since 1993. “We were 16-4, so I’ve got to look at it and say, ‘OK, what changed? What needs to be changed?’ ” Smith said. “Every time I come back to it, I go, ‘Well, we really didn’t have the two best players on our team.’ ” Al Nolen and Devoe Joseph were feisty, confident guards who struggled at times but showed an ability to drive to the basket and defend the perimeter. When Joseph left the program in a clash with Smith over attitude and academics and Nolen went down with a broken foot, the Gophers were suddenly missing critical attributes they weren’t able to replace. They lost 10 of their last 11 games and much of their confidence along with it. Smith was critical of the performance of several players down the stretch and, in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, was steadfast in his belief that a change in style is unnecessary. His assessment: Some of his players didn’t train well enough the previous summer, and the entire team was a victim of the unlucky breaks of season-ending injuries to Nolen and freshman center Maurice Walker. Not only did their absences prove costly, but other players the Gophers redshirted because of their depth at every position were unable to help.

tion. The two sides will meet again on Wednesday morning in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan. The talks are the latest step in the contentious fight over a new collective bargaining agreement. Sixteen days of mediated talks in Washington fell short, resulting in a class-action antitrust lawsuit filed by the players against the NFL and the owners’ decision to lock out the players after they disbanded their union. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson said at a hearing on April 6 that she would rule “in a couple of weeks” on the players’ request to lift the lockout. Wednesday will be exactly two weeks from the hearing. With Nelson’s decision looming, some have wondered how eager either side would be to negotiate a settlement given that the ruling on the injunction could swing the leverage to one side or the other. But Michael Hausfeld, an attorney representing retired players, said on Tuesday morning that both sides are commit-

Knight apologizes for statement toward Kentucky

NEW YORK — Bob Knight has apologized to Kentucky and coach John Calipari after claiming that several of the Wildcats’ players did not attend spring semester classes last year. The Hall of Fame coach and college basketball analyst for ESPN blasted Calipari’s habit of recruiting players who spend just a year on campus before bolting for the NBA during a speaking engagement in Indiana last weekend. Knight said in a brief statement released by ESPN on Tuesday: “My overall point is that ’one-and-dones’ are not healthy for college basketball. I should not have made it personal to Kentucky and its players and I apologize.” The Wildcats went 35-3 during the 2009-10 season, after which freshmen John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe and Daniel Orton left school for the NBA.

“We’d have been playing for a Big Ten championship if Al Nolen and Maurice Walker were healthy. It’s as simple as that,” Smith said. “The best-laid plans.” As he peered through a window at his returning players running up and down the court, Smith expressed optimism about the addition of four new recruits plus three players who redshirted last season. “What’s different about Tubby Smith this year? I don’t know. I didn’t get any dumber,” Smith said. “I think our kids worked just as hard in practice and our staff worked just as hard, probably harder than we’ve ever worked to be honest with you.” ted to the mediation sessions. “This is no charade. This is no illusion. This is going to come to a resolution either by the parties compromising or agreeing or by a judgment,” Hausfeld said. “And even with a judgment, many times there is then a discussion as to how to compromise the judgment so there is not a winner-take-all situation. “This takes time. The court is doing everything within its power to get the parties to realize that.” DeMaurice Smith, the head of the players’ trade association, did not attend the session on Tuesday due to a family emergency and neither did lead attorney Jeffrey Kessler. When discussions concluded on Friday, Boylan assigned some weekend homework. Hausfeld walked into the federal courthouse on Tuesday with a document that he estimated at about 100 pages responding to the questions Boylan asked them to answer. “What this mediation is about, what the dispute is about, is the structure of the game and the relationship between the rookies, the active players, the retirees, with each other and the league,” Hausfeld said. “Those are fundamental.”

RUNNING

Boston Marathon winner breaks ‘world-best’ mark BOSTON — One day after Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds — the fastest time ever for the 26.2-mile distance — race officials said they will ask track’s international governing body to certify his time as a world record even though the course is technically ineligible. “Sure,” Tom Grilk, the executive director of the Boston Athletic Association, said Tuesday. “Why wouldn’t we?” With temperatures in the 50s and a steady, significant tailwind — perfect marathon weather — Mutai ran almost a minute faster than the official world record of 2:03:59 set by Haile Gebrselassie in Berlin in 2008. But Mutai’s mark is doomed to be recognized

only as a “world best,” not a “world record,” because the Boston course is too downhill and too much of a straight line to meet IAAF standards. Fourth-place finisher Ryan Hall’s 2:04:58 was the fastest ever for a U.S. runner; it is likewise ineligible to be recognized as the American record because the national governing body has similar rules to the international one, according to Jim Estes, the manager of long-distance running programs for USA Track and Field. Hall didn’t seem to care about being ineligible for an American record, but he didn’t feel like his time was tainted, either. “There’s no disappointment for me,” he said on Tuesday. “I was sitting there last night and I’m saying, ’I’m a 2:04 marathoner.’ I don’t care if it’s the course, or

the wind, or anything. I’m a 2:04 marathoner.” Still, Boston officials said they will fill out the paperwork required to have the records certified, essentially daring the governing bodies to reject an unprecedented performance on the world’s most prestigious marathon course. The potential showdown has runners lining up behind Mutai and insisting that any rule that excludes Boston, a race that predates the IAAF itself, is itself flawed. “The IAAF must come and see Boston, and look, from start to finish, and see,” Mutai said Tuesday. “It is 42 kilometers, up and down the whole way. This is 42 kilometers; the other, that Gebrselassie ran, is 42 kilometers. It is not easy.” In fact, no one is saying that

Boston is easy — certainly not anyone who’s run the grueling hills from Hopkinton to Copley Square. But IAAF rules that encourage flat, loop courses were created to weed out marathons designed to produce artificially fast times with downhill courses or favorable weather. Ironically, they wound up excluding Boston, the world’s oldest and most traditional marathon course.“This is the most time-tested course in the world,” 1986 Boston winner Rob de Castella said Tuesday. “Just about every great marathoner in history has run on this course. You can’t take away from this amazing performance. It’s a record performance, beyond a shadow of a doubt.” De Castella and other marathoners also noted on Monday

Suit vs. Taco Bell dropped

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2011

By DEE-ANN DURBIN AP Auto Writer

NEW YORK — General Motors Co. CEO Dan Akerson said he doesn’t regret the company’s decision to increase spending on rebates and other deals earlier this year even though it has contributed to the company’s tumbling stock price. GM surprised the industry — and

Wall Street — when it raised discounts by $400 per vehicle in January and February. Most automakers didn’t raise them because demand for new vehicles has been rising in line with supply. “I feel pretty good about that. I think we’re in pretty good shape,” Akerson said at an automotive conference Tuesday in New York. Akerson said the increased incentives helped GM sell 100,000 more cars in the first quarter than it did in the same period last year. It also caught GM’s competition off-guard.

“I don’t want to be a predictable competitor,” Akerson said. “I don’t want the other guy to know exactly what I’m doing.” GM pulled back on its incentives in March, spending $600 to $800 per vehicle less on the deals. But it was too late for some investors, who shied away from the company’s stock because higher rebates lower car companies’ profits. GM’s stock ended Tuesday at $29.59 a share,10 percent below the company’s $33-per-share initial public offering in November. The stock opened the year

On National Hiring Day, company takes on critics

Taco Bell declared victory Tuesday after an Alabama-based law firm dropped its class-action lawsuit that raised a beef with the meat filling served in the fast-food chain’s tacos and burritos. The two sides differed, though, on the result of the legal battle that had put Taco Bell on the defensive, prompting the popular chain to spend millions to defend its taco filling. The law firm Beasley Allen, of Montgomery, Ala., said it dropped the lawsuit after Taco Bell made changes to its marketing and product disclosure. Taco Bell CEO Greg Creed countered that the chain made no changes to its products or advertising and didn’t discuss possible changes with the plaintiff’s lawyers.

Oil cost hike criticized

Saudi Arabia’s oil minister says the current high oil price is unjustifiable and that speculation over the future oil markets is mainly behind the hike. Ali Naimi told reporters the lower demand for Saudi oil in March compared to February was a sign of an existing surplus on the global market.

Jan. 3 at $37.32, but has fallen 21 percent since. That could hurt the government’s effort to recoup the $50 billion it gave GM to survive. The U.S. government got back $13.5 billion from the sale of some of its shares in November’s IPO. But to break even, it needs to sell its remaining shares for $53 each. The government still owns a 26.5 percent stake — about 500 million shares — in GM. Akerson said he hasn’t had discussions with the U.S. Treasury on when it might sell its remaining stake.

Upbeat about deficit deal

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on Tuesday reassured investors that the White House and Republican lawmakers will reach a deal to control the nation’s finances, downplaying an unprecedented warning that the government risks losing its coveted debt rating if it fails to do so. In an interview on CNBC, Geithner said he disagrees with Standard & Poor’s decision to lower its long-term outlook for the federal government’s fiscal health. The credit agency on Monday warned the government could lose its top credit rating in the next two years if lawmakers fail to come up with a long-term plan to bring down the federal deficit.

Apple had two big events in its second fiscal quarter: It introduced the iPad 2, and Verizon began selling the iPhone. Apple has said it expects to earn $4.90 a share for the quarter on $22 billion in revenue. However, the company is known for setting expectations low and then surpassing them. If earnings meet or only slightly exceed forecasts, the stock could fall. Aside from earnings, investors will look for an update on the health of CEO Steve Jobs.

Mickey D’s serves up jobs

By CHRISTINA REXRODE AP Business Writer

McDonald’s Corp. for years has fought back against critics who complain it’s making people fat. On Tuesday, it went on the offense against those who assail it as a lousy place to work. Thousands showed up to restaurants nationwide to apply for jobs on the hamburger giant’s first National Hiring Day, creating lines at some restaurants. The world’s largest burger chain planned to use the day to add 50,000 new workers. McDonald’s painted the event as a boon for an economy where more than 13 million Americans are still looking for work. But the company usually staffs up for summer anyway. It added 50,000 new workers in April last year, so the blitz amounts to typical hiring, albeit compressed into a day.

The real purpose of the hiring campaign, industry experts said, was to portray the fast-food chain as a good employer. “There are worse things an economic rebound could ask than, ‘Welcome to McDonald’s — may I take your order please?’ ” Jan Fields, president of McDonald’s U.S. operations, wrote in an opinion piece for the company. Fighting the "you-want-fries-withthat" jokes will be a challenge for a company whose name is often synonymous with cautionary tales about dead-end jobs. "McJob" even has a place in The Oxford English Dictionary, defined as “an unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects.” But to people who need work, any stigma is beside the point. Managers at a McDonald’s in Cincinnati said a dozen or so applicants had lined up by 7 a.m., an hour before the restaurant

planned to start interviews. By 10 a.m., the store had interviewed 100 people and had 25 more waiting. Tiwian Irby, 28, was hoping for a full-time job and wasn’t particular about what it would entail. He said he’d had trouble finding regular work since getting laid off from his construction job two years ago. “A job is a job to me,” said Irby, a father of three. “I’ll take whatever is available.” Danitra Barnett, the company’s U.S. vice president of human resources, said she couldn’t specify what proportion of the 50,000 new jobs will be full-time, or what they will pay. About 90 percent of McDonald’s are owned by franchisees, and the company doesn’t control what they offer in wages or benefits. Barnett said most franchisees pay more than minimum wage, which is $7.25an-hour nationally.

HAZLE TWP. -- An Indianapolisbased order fulfillment company has expanded its operations into Northeast Pennsylvania. Fifth Gear has leased a 115,000square-foot center in the Humboldt Industrial Park and began operations this month with 30 employees. Fifth Gear President Matt Konkle said the new expansion will further strengthen relationships with its existing customer base, cultivate new business relationships, and enhance the brand. “Our customers drive our business,” Konkle said. “Fifth Gear is very excited about the new opportunity to grow, and we welcome the opportunity to leverage this new location to better serve our existing and future clients.” The company employs 500 nationally, at its Indianapolis headquarters, warehouse space in suburban St. Louis and contact centers in Louisiana, Mo., and Moberly, Mo. Company officials said they needed to find a location outside of the Midwest. “For the long-term, this is an exciting step in Fifth Gear’s logistics strategy,” said Fifth Gear CEO and Chairman Al Langsenkamp. “We continue to make significant investments that are centered around improving our delivery and operational efficiencies. This new facility gives Fifth Gear a unique market position with respect to Northeast order fulfillment.” Company spokeswoman Katie Guyer said the company’s new southern Luzerne County center will be an order-filling operation and also houses an embroidery facility and there is room for a future contact center. The warehouse in Hazleton has room to expand to 165,000 square feet. Konkle said the Hazleton work force could grow by the end of the year.

Another clothing store will make Wilkes-Barre Midtown Village debut By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Fresh off the opening of one trendy store in the Midtown Village Plaza on South Main Street comes news that another clothing store is preparing to do the same. Owner Adam Nulton, 34, of Mountain Top, said Addiction Clothing will open in mid-May in a 1,000-square-foot property near Katana in a storefront formerly occupied by Payton’s Place. Nulton also owns Northeast Auto

Glass with three locations in Wilkes-Barre. Minority business partner, Shirlee Miller, will help do the buying, especially for the women’s clothing and accessories. The two will be the only employees from the get-go, Nulton said. “I want to bring to WilkesBarre a line of premium clothing brands that you would, until now, only find in cities like New York or Las Vegas,” Nulton said. “I want to give people a chance to purchase what they want without

having to worry about mistakenly buying knock-offs online.” Among the brands of men’s and women’s clothing Addiction Clothing will offer are Ed Hardy, Remetee, Xtreme Couture, Nikibiki Apparel and Roar Clothing. On March 13, Outrageous, a jewelry, accessories and gift store owned by Paul Nardone, opened for business. Nulton echoed what Nardone said about deciding to set up shop in downtown WilkesBarre. “Wilkes-Barre has a lot of good businesses coming to the area.

The city has done some really good things with all the new restaurants and movie theater and there is a lot more traffic,” said Nulton, a Noxen native. “It has really changed drastically over the past few years. I am excited to be doing business here.” Nardone said his decision to relocate to Wilkes-Barre is turning out to have been the right one. Nardone closed his store’s Shavertown location when the Wilkes-Barre store opened. He also runs a sister shop of the same name in downtown Scranton.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled about having a second downtown location,” Nardone said. “Wilkes-Barre is my hometown and I feel it needed some additional retail to add to all the good things that are happening with the food and entertainment offerings in the area,” he said. Nulton said the movie theater, multiple bars, Barnes & Noble bookstore and the location’s proximity to King’s College and Wilkes University made the decision an easy one.

“The location was right,” Nulton said. He said he continues to see positive advances in downtown Wilkes-Barre. So too does Robert Finlay, the president of Humford Equities, which manages Midtown Village. Finlay said once Addiction opens only one storefront in the plaza will be vacant – the former Interstate Blood Bank next to The Bee Hive Gift Shop. He said additional downtown employees and the new nightlife options should be credited.

Five stocks to watch

Investors try to predict each earnings season which stocks are likely to soar when company results are announced. Here are five stocks that some financial analysts are betting on: TUESDAY’S CLOSE

Qualcomm (QCOM)

PRICE-EARNINGS QUARTERLY EPS 52-WEEK RATIO (based on RANGE YR. AGO EST. past 12 months)

$53.42 $31.63—59.84

25

$0.59

$0.80

Reports April 20. Analysts lowered forecasts for the wireless telecom company because up to 7 percent of its pretax earnings comes from Japan. The impact of the March 11 earthquake is unclear. But the company makes technology for Android smart phones. Credit Suisse’s Kulbinder Garcha says that will outweigh setbacks Qualcomm faces in Japan. Panera Bread (PNRA)

1.07

Reports April 26. The restaurant chain has a history of stock jumps after earnings reports. Its stock soared 16 percent in February after Panera said fourth-quarter income rose 23 percent. It also raised its forecast for 2011. Analysts say Panera has done better than other restaurants. Business is expected to keep improving as the unemployment rate falls. Dean Foods (DF)

Reports April 27. The country’s largest milk producer had the worst performance of any S&P 500 stock last year because milk prices fell nearly 5 percent. But the price of milk is rising again. Investors want to see Dean’s forecast for the rest of 2011. They also want details about the company’s ongoing restructuring. A good forecast could send Dean higher. Frozen Foods Express (FFEX)

3.69

2.68—5.00

lost money

-0.22

-0.12

Reports May 2. This trucking company is expected to report disappointing earnings because of high fuel prices and snowstorms. But Eric Marshall, a portfolio manager for Hodges Mutual funds, thinks its stock will rise. More companies need freight hauled as the economy improves. Frozen Foods’ 2011 forecast will be the key to how well the stock does. OmniVision (OVTI)

30.37

15.11—37.04

19

0.18

0.63

Reports May 26. Omnivision makes chips for cameras in Apple’s iPhone and iPad. The success of those products has lifted its earnings for over a year. Investors worry that the company’s dependence on Apple makes it vulnerable. It’s trading at only 10 times what it’s expected to earn per share in the next year. Another good quarter might reassure investors. SOURCE: FactSet

I've recorded only 2 sunny days this month along with close to 5 inches of rain. Indeed, the troops are getting restless and patience is wearing thin waiting for the sunny, warm weather to arrive this spring. That just will not happen with having a very active storm track displaced farther south across the U.S., and I see no indication of it shifting back north any time soon. In the meantime, warmer air will surge into town this afternoon, but a cold front will follow through by dinner time with a shower. Dry, colder weather tonight will last into Friday morning then more showers could arrive heading into Saturday.

CHEF’S CORNER MARK NEYLON THE RIVER GRILLE

This seaside favorite gets a local touch

THE RIVER GRILLE and I are bringing a little taste of the Eastern Shore to WilkesBarre. We proudly introduce our softshell crab sandwich, a seaside favorite, with a bit of local flair. Combining the tastes with which we are all familiar with the best the Eastern Shore of Maryland has to offer, this is a crispy, deep-fried crab atop a homemade kaiser, with Granny Smith apple slaw and chili-pepper mayo. The flavors are a melting pot of sweet, savory and spicy all rolled into one. The sandwich is available on our new summer menu from lunch until late night, so stop by soon and amaze your tastebuds with something different. Here’s how it’s done.

SOFT-SHELL CRAB WITH APPLE SLAW AND CHILI-PEPPER MAYO

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

E

aster dinner isn’t meant to be a rushed affair. And neither should the meat you serve at it. Which doesn’t mean you have to work particularly hard. This flavorful, slowly roasted leg of lamb from Sarah Raven’s cookbook, “Fresh From the Garden,” is a great example of the wonders you can work when you’re not even in the kitchen. Combine the marinade, add the meat, refrigerate and walk away for 24, even 48 hours. When you’re ready to cook, dump everything in a roasting pan, walk away for four and a half hours, and you are good to go. The only real effort involves making the gravy to serve with the lamb. And even that is just a matter of tossing the roasting pan on the stove and simmering for a bit. FIVE-HOUR LEG OF LAMB This recipe cooks the lamb to well done. If you prefer the lamb less done, start checking it after 3 to 3 1/2 hours until it reaches the desired temperature. Start to finish: 1 hour active, plus overnight marinating and 3 to 5 hours roasting Servings: 8 For the marinade: 750-milliliter bottle dry white wine 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 tablespoons cumin seeds, toasted and coarsely ground 2 tablespoons coriander seeds, toasted

and coarsely ground 5 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon ground black pepper For the lamb: 5- to 5 1/2-pound leg of lamb 3 carrots, chopped 2 onions, chopped 3 leeks, chopped 4 cloves garlic For the gravy: 2 cups vegetable or meat stock 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1/2 cup port or red wine

2 tablespoons red currant jelly Salt and black pepper, to taste To prepare the marinade, in a 2 1/2-gallon zip-close plastic bag, combine wine, garlic, cumin, coriander, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add the leg of lamb, close the bag and toss well to cover. Stand the bag upright (or double bag) in a large bowl or bucket, then refrigerate for 24 to 48 hours, turning the bag every few hours to coat the meat. Five hours before you wish to serve the lamb, heat the oven to 300 F. In a large roasting pan, arrange the carrots, onions, leeks and garlic in an even layer. Place the leg of lamb over the vegetables, then pour the marinade in the bag over everything. Roast for 4 1/2 hours. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the lamb to a serving platter. Cover the lamb with foil, then a layer of kitchen towels. Let rest for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over low, heat the stock. Use a slotted spoon to discard the vegetables from the roasting pan. Let the liquid in the pan rest for several minutes, then spoon off any visible fat. Set the roasting pan over one or two burners and heat over medium, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon to loosen any stuck bits. Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for another 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly pour the stock into the roasting pan, stirring until it becomes a smooth gravy. Stir in the port and jelly, then simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the lamb with the gravy.

FOR THE CRAB AND SLAW: Oil for frying 2 soft-shell crabs, cleaned 2 cups of Cajun-seasoned flour (2 cups flour with 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning) 1 quart water 1 Granny Smith apple, thinly julienned 1/2 Vidalia onion, thinly julienned 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup white vinegar 1/4 cup white sugar 1/2 teaspoon caraway seed CHILI PEPPER MAYO: 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 tablespoon brown sugar Directions: Flour the crabs, then dip them in water. Flour them again until they have a good coating on them. This step can be repeated several times until they are well-breaded. Fry them in the oil until they are cooked thoroughly, and the breading has reached a golden brown. To make the apple slaw, combine the julienned onion and apple in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the half cup of mayonnaise, the white vinegar, sugar and caraway seed. Whisk through until well-blended. Add the dressing to the apple and onion until well-covered. To make the chili-pepper mayo, combine the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Cover the bottom half of a toasted kaiser roll with the apple slaw and place the fried soft-shell crab on top. Lightly coat the top of the bun with the chili-pepper mayo and enjoy!

Like chocolate? Wine? The twain tastily meet By MICHELLE LOCKE For The Associated Press

Candy is dandy, but chocolate wine really seems to get taste buds in an uproar. “The reaction has been amazing,” says Don Opici, whose family-run company, Opici Wines, recently introduced Cocoa di Vine. Never heard of chocolate wine? Chances are you will. More vintners are amping up the decadence decibels with blends of wine infused with chocolate flavorings. Sold as dessert wines and particularly popular around choco-centric holidays such as Valentine’s Day and Easter, the wines fit into a larger trend that has seen Americans embracing their penchant for wines that are fruity and sweet, such as moscato, the sweet and zesty white

wine that took off last summer. “It is absolutely fitting into the sweet-tooth wine trend, says W. R. Tish, founder of the wine site NYWineSalon.com. Chocolate wines generally fall into two camps. Some are port-style wines that are dark red and have, if done right, a rich, dark chocolate taste. Examples include Rosenblum Cellars’ Desiree dessert wine. The other style mixes cream into the wine, creating a sort of adult milkshake. Cocoa di Vine falls into the latter category, though it’s a little different in that it is based on a blend of white wines, including torrontes, moscato and Pedro Ximenez, a sherry grape. Ten years ago, “I would have laughed at the idea of a chocolate wine,” Tish says. But he’s been tak-

ing Cocoa di Vine to tasting events, where it’s proved so popular that, “I’m careful not to bring it out until the end.” At Rosenblum Cellars, the idea of mixing chocolate and wine goes back about a decade, says winemaker John Kane. The wine is made with port-style wines, along with chocolate flavorings added with an emulsifying agent. Desiree always does well at Easter and Valentine’s, but during the past couple of years there’s been increased interest year-round, with some bartenders using it to make chocolatinis. “It’s definitely a crowd pleaser,” Kane says. In a way, chocolate and wine are natural partners. A lot of wine-lovers

say they can pick up notes of chocolate in certain varieties, particularly cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel, says Jerry Burd, winemaker owner of Black Mesa Winery in Velarde, N.M., which sells a chocolate wine under the name Black Beauty. Still, some people need a little coaxing to accept the concept. “We have a lot of people that say, ‘I don’t even want to taste a chocolate wine.’ And then they walk out with chocolate wine in their bag,” Burd says. “We work hard to keep it balanced as far as sweetness and wine and chocolate so it doesn’t overcome your palate with any one of those. It’s not like eating a Hershey bar or Tootsie roll or something like that. It’s a nicely flavored, balanced wine.”

Six units mark National Scout Sunday at Gate of Heaven Church Six Boy and Girl Scout units in Back Mountain celebrated National Scout Sunday at Gate of Heaven Church, Dallas. They are Pack 232, Dallas, Pack 339, Center Moreland, Pack 241, Lehman Township, Troop 146, Jackson Township, Troop 281, Dallas, and Troop 444 of Sweet Valley. The Rev. Daniel Toomey, pastor of Gate of Heaven Church, presided at the Mass and recognized a record-number of 40 scouts who pursued their Roman Catholic religious emblems in 2011. Knights of Columbus Assumpta Council 3987, Luzerne, also participated in the celebration.

Co-workers grit their teeth when they see dentist’s sagging pants Dear Abby: I work in a dental office. My boss (the doctor) and his assistant have a problem keeping their pants up. Every time either of them reaches for something or, God forbid, bends over — they flash their backsides. It’s just bad, and both of them are pretty good-sized men. My boss is the kindest, most generous person I know. But frankly, this is an embarrassment for patients and co-workers alike. Something has to be done. Any suggestions to help us with this problem would be greatly appreciated. — Embarrassed For Everyone, Towanda, Pa.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Embarrassed: The doctor and his assistant may be unaware of the show to which they are treating everyone. You say this is not only embarrassing for the employees but also the patients. Have any of them complained about it to you? If so, you have your opening to transmit that message to Dr. Derriere. Dear Abby: I have been with my boyfriend, “Gil,” for three years. We bought a house together six months ago. Prior to that, we had a discussion about the future. Gil told me he wanted to get married and have kids.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

I expected a marriage proposal over the holidays. When it didn’t happen, I asked him what he was waiting for. His response broke my heart. He said he no longer wants to get married. Gil says he loves me, I’m his “best friend,” he is willing to move forward and have children — but not get married. I’m not sure how I feel about his arrangement. I am depressed and don’t know what to do. For me, Gil is “The One” — the love of my life. I feel like a failure and a fool for allowing myself to get into this situation. Please help me. — Wedding Bell Blues in Massachusetts Dear Wedding Bell Blues: I don’t blame you for feeling depressed and

CRYPTOQUOTE

confused. The person you thought was The One led you on and convinced you to make a major investment under false pretenses. You should not have children with him under these circumstances. Before this goes any further and you feel even worse about yourself, I’m advising you to consult a lawyer about extricating yourself from this bad business deal. You’re not the failure. He is. Dear Abby: I played matchmaker for a girlfriend and introduced her to a buddy of mine from work. Two years later, he was arrested for molesting her children, and I just found out he’d had a record for this! She is no longer speaking to me. What do I do? — Regretful in Oregon

Dear Regretful: All you can do is apologize — which I presume you have already done. Although you were well-intended when you made the introduction, it implied that you were giving him your endorsement. However, you should not have been expected to have done a background check on him — that was your friend’s responsibility as the mother of young children. And she may be madder at herself for not doing so than she is at you. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone wants to win you and is starting to get the sense that this is not so easily accomplished. You have carefully placed your emotional barriers so that only the most determined and worthy can reach your heart. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The one who takes you for granted will continue to do so for as long as you let this go on. Get creative. How can you break the cycle? Engineer a wakeup call. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have moxie and imaginative flair. You’ll show this by delivering a special experience to someone you love. What you make happen will be a first for the other person and forever memorable because of it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Notice the informal network that’s going on behind the scenes. This is where important exchanges are happening, and you need to be a part of this. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are creative by nature and rarely feel bored. You can always find something to do. You will lead with this instinct. Your persuasion will turn an event into so much more than it started out to be. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You think someone is wiser than you, but this isn’t necessarily so. Learn from the specialized knowledge this person has, and do not attribute extra qualities to him or place him on a pedestal. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). For many people you know, much of life is routine. That’s why the interruptions and distractions you

instinctively provide keep things interesting. They depend on you — don’t let them down. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Forgetting someone’s name isn’t the end of the world, but it might be the end of the relationship if it’s a name you really should know. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There is an unfulfilled wish you have held for so many years that you hardly ever think of it anymore. You will today, though. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When collaboration is what’s called for, you are a dream partner. You are playful, yet you stay on point. Others will find your input to be savvy, ethical and perceptive. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be “swimming with sharks.” Luckily, not everyone in the tank is ferocious. If you are nice and do the right thing, it will be recognized and you will be protected. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will do something that is rare and beautiful. You will listen so actively to another person that you will forget yourself completely as you become immersed in this person’s world. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 20). You’ll see your entire lifestyle with new eyes. It’s like you went away and took in so much of the world that when you returned home you noticed things you never did before. May brings a remarkable improvement. August heals your heart. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 28, 15, 38 and 4.
