The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees announced Friday that team president Kristen Rose has resigned to relocate closer to her family and take another position with Mandalay Baseball Properties. The announcement came at the end of another week in which only Rose mild progress was made toward the completion of the sale of the Triple-A baseball franchise. As expected, some of the equipment has been moved into place at PNC Field in Moosic. The stadium will be reconstructed once the sale is complete with the plan of bringing the team home for the 2013 season. Actual construction work will not begin, however, until the sale is complete. In a team press release Friday, Mandalay Baseball CEO Art Matin said the search for Rose’s replacement “is beginning immediately.” Negotiations have been ongoing for Lackawanna County to sell the team to SWB Yankees LLC, a joint venture of the New York Yankees and the Mandalay, which has been managing the franchise. A public hearing and a meeting of the Lackawanna County Multi-Purpose Stadium Authority will be held before the sale is completed, but neither has been scheduled. More than a week ago, a stadium authority meeting was announced, but then that was postponed while both sides continued review of sales contracts. “We still haven’t heard anything from the Yankees,” Lackawanna County Communications Director Joe D’Arienzo said Thursday. All parties in the sale had tentatively reached an agreement which was placed in writing last week for each to review and request any necessary additions,

Early childhood education is important Educators and leaders at forum promote learning in the formative years. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – We may learn more in the first five years than we will during the rest of life, so the education we receive in those formative years is critical to our long-term success. That was the message educators, public officials and business leaders promoted at an Early Childhood Business Community Forum Friday at Misericordia University. “Early childhood is an integral, important part of the long-term education of a child,” state Rep.

Phyllis Mundy said at the event. “The long-term education of a child doesn’t begin in kindergarten; it doesn’t begin in 1st grade. It begins at birth, when the parent is holding that little baby.” The program was the third in a series of four events hosted by the United Way focusing on early childhood education in conjunction with the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s annual Week of the Young Child, which begins Sunday and runs through April 28. Misericordia President Michael A. MacDowell said the topic of Friday’s conference was the effect of the economy on the child, but as an economics professor he liked to think of it the other way round. “The young child has a tre-

L-L says it has plan to slash health cost The school district is looking to withdraw from consortium designed to rein in spending. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

LEHMAN TWP. – Lake-Lehman School District Superintendent Jim McGovern said he has found a way to save up to $1.1 million in health insurance costs, and has called a Tuesday meeting with other area administrators to show them his figures – and, with luck, to pave the way for a speedy withdrawal from the Northeast Pennsylvania School Health Trust. “We engaged a few brokers to analyze our current plan and see if we could come up with a plan that is equal to or better than our current one, and that could save us money,” McGovern said. “We found we could save anywhere from $600,000 to $1.1 million the first year.” Lake-Lehman belongs to the Health Trust, a consortium of districts formed in 1999 to use collective purchasing power to rein in insurance costs. The trust requires a district to give one year’s notice if a district intends to withdraw from the consortium, but McGovern said that, after seeing the size of potential savings, he opted to go directly to other members of the trust and try to convince them to modify the bylaws so Lake-Lehman can leave more quickly. “I’m not going to leave $1 million sitting on the table for a year,” McGovern said. McGovern has been aggressive in reshaping Lake-Lehman to meet economic challenges since Tom Corbett became governor and sharply curbed state money for public education. Corbett insists he has not cut state funding, and that the loss of income districts are experiencing stems from the end of the federal stimulus money that had been funneled through state coffers. Most area administrators and business managers counter that the bottom line is what matters, and that districts are grappling

with the loss of millions that previously came from the state. McGovern said Lake-Lehman has projected a two-year budget and “we are looking at a $1.8 million deficit in the 2013-14 school year. I can’t wait until 2013-14 to act; we have to take steps now. I’m fairly confident this insurance change would erase that entire debt.” Those invited to the meeting Tuesday include superintendents, business managers and solicitors for districts that are members of the trust. McGovern said if they want to invite union representatives, they would be welcome. The trust initially ran annual deficits and set sharp rate increases for several years, but started to build a surplus and offer dramatic drops in premium rates after hiring an actuarial firm. At one point the surplus hovered near $20 million, which allowed the trust to annually waive one-month’s premiums, a substantial savings for districts. The trust also has a string of years with little or no increases in premium payments, though that trend seems to have come to an end as some districts face percentage increases in the double digits for the 2012-13 school year. The large surplus also prompted two districts – Pittston Area and Dallas – to withdraw, believing the surplus proved they were being overcharged. The districts sued in 2008 for what they claimed was their share of the surplus. In December a Luzerne County Judge ruled in favor of the districts, ordering the trust to pay them a combined $5.2 million. The trust has appealed. McGovern said he’s not “knocking the trust,” and that it has saved money for some districts. But he believes the savings he found after shopping around make it hard to justify continuing membership. “Why would you, if you knew that one move would improve your health care and save taxpayers money without having to consider furloughs, suspensions or terminating more programs?”

mendous impact on the economy,” MacDowell said. “Especially if you treat them well. The investment is relatively small at the outset and the return is relatively high.” Statistically, the college-educated earn more and thereby pay more in taxes than their high school-educated peers, who in turn earn more than high school dropouts, and the education a child receives early in life increases his or her likelihood of graduating from college, MacDowell said. William Grant, owner of preschool chain Hildebrandt Learning Centers, said educators need to inform two important groups about the importance of early childhood education; families, who need to recognize quality

early childhood education when they see it, and political and business leaders who can provide funding. “Early childhood funding is put on the back burner by most politicians at this point due to the fact that young children don’t vote and don’t give money to politicians,” he said. Statistically, each dollar invested in early childhood education saves up to $16 in remedia-

tion and corrections costs later in life, said Lauren Allen, vice president of PNC Bank’s PNC Foundation. Carl Noto, executive director of Ecumenical Enterprises, Inc., talked about the success his company had in starting a day care at the Meadows Nursing Center. Little Meadows, a Hildebrandt Learning Center, was begun in response to problems with retaining employees who did not have access to affordable or reliable day care for their children. The operation has been so successful the center now welcomes non-employee children as well. “We know that it cuts down on the absenteeism, it improves our employee morale and it helps improve our bottom line,” Noto said.

MARKING A LEGENDARY SPORTS EVENT

DIMOCK, Pa. — Federal regulators released another batch of test results for the Northeastern Pennsylvania village of Dimock on Friday and said that one

homeowner’s well was found to have a high level of arsenic. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has tested the well water of scores of homes in Dimock, where a gas driller is being blamed by some residents and anti-drilling groups for polluting the aquifer. Releasing data on 16 of the homes, EPA said Friday one of the wells had a level of cancercausing arsenic that exceeded

ony Thomas Jr., left, and Clem Norman stand next to the Babe Ruth kiosk in Kirby Park that marks the spot where Babe Ruth’s legendary longest home run came to rest. The kiosk will mark the spot for posterity. Thomas is a former city councilman. The three-sided marker – which cost $3,600 – will be unveiled at a dedication ceremony during the city’s Cherry Blossom Festival next week. According to a story that ran on Oct. 13, 1926 in the Wilkes-Barre Morning Record, Ruth was at Artillery Park to play in an exhibition game between Hughestown and Larksville. Ruth played for Hughestown and he challenged Larksville hurler Ernie Corkran to throw him his best stuff – a fastball right down the heart of the plate. Ruth hit the ball that some say was still rising when it cleared the fence – a distance of 400 feet from home plate. The ball was estimated to have traveled 650 feet before it came to a stop. Ruth, who was known for his home run-hitting prowess, played for the New York Yankees in the 1920s and 1930s.

Woman’s death under investigation Wilkes-Barre city police are on scene of a woman’s death in the parking lot of St. Luke’s Villa nursing home along East Northampton Street late Friday night.

Arsenic occurs naturally in soil and has a variety of industrial and agricultural uses. EPA did not link the arsenic found in the well water to gas drilling. Regulators said in a brief statement that beyond the arsenic result, “this set of sampling did not show levels of contaminants that

would give EPA reason to take further action.” EPA has released test results for a total of 47 homes to date. Spokesman Roy Seneca said the agency awaits results for 14 more homes. Dimock has been at the center of a debate over the environmental and health effects of Marcellus Shale drilling. Some accuse Houston-based Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. of polluting Dimock’s

Walter Dam eyed for electric power A federal report examines dams that do not currently produce power. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

WEATHERLY – The U.S. Department of Energy thinks the Francis E. Walter Dam could generate enough electricity to power every home in Weatherly. The dam is noted in an Energy Department report released Monday that details the potential to develop electric power generation at existing dams across the United States that aren’t currently equipped to produce power.

In Pennsylvania, the report says, sites analyzed could provide 679 megawatts of added power capacity if developed. About 10 megawatts of that could be generated at the Francis Walter Dam. A megawatt is equal to one million watts of power, and can power 750 to 1,000 homes for a year, according to industrygroup National Hydropower Association. Though relatively small by power-plant standards, a 10megawatt capacity should be more than enough to power the borough of Weatherly, which according to U.S. Census Data has fewer than 1,000 households. By contrast, the Bald Mountain Wind Farm in Bear Creek

duces 2,500. The largest unpowered dam on the Energy Department’s list, the Ohio River lock in Olmstead, Ohio, could produce 496 megawatts, the report states. The Carbon County borough has considered building a power plant on the dam as early as the 1970s, and has more recently revisited the idea. In 2008 the borough submitted a preliminary permit application to study the feasibility of building a hydroelectric plant to the Federal DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER Energy Regulatory Commission, and it is currently in the Weatherly borough and a private company are both exploring process of renewing that perthe idea of building a power plant on the Walter Dam. mit, borough manager Harold Township produces about 24 produces about 125 and PPL’s Pudliner said. megawatts; UGI’s gas-fired Susquehanna nuclear power Hunlock Creek Energy Center plant in Salem Township pro- See DAM, Page 14A

In court papers filed Friday, Pasonick’s attorney, Joseph Sklarosky Sr., said Pasonick is ready to begin serving the sentence. Sklarosky said the U.S. Marshal’s Office asked him to seek the delay because the Bureau of Prisons has not yet determined where Pasonick, who has medical issues, should be placed.

Waterproofing of domes near Courthouse restoration goes on

The Luzerne County Courthouse domes have gone from shiny white to dark matte gray, but the transformation isn’t finished.

The large dome and four smaller ones will be a shiny, lighter gray when a highperformance coating is applied, he said.

Reinforcement mesh that looks like a laundry fabric softener sheet also must be added before finishing with a top coat. “We wanted something that will keep the domes watertight for at least 25 years,” Gibbons said.

It will match new zinc-coated capping on roofline edges and overhangs. “The domes will be brighter, a more pronounced shade than what’s there now,” Gibbons said.

Boice wants investigation of Harveys Lake grant Council member wants to know how other members applied for gaming funds. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

HARVEYS LAKE – Borough council member Michell’e Boice wants a formal investigation conducted into how other members of council applied for a gaming fund grant. A majority of council voted April 17 to pursue plans to relocate the borough police department after a heated public hearing on the issue. The borough received a $78,220 grant from gaming funds in March for the project, but Boice said she and other members of council had never heard of the plans before the grant was awarded. Council is proposing to move the current police station from a former bait shop

on state Route 415 to an unused recreation building at 22 Little League Road. The new facility would include two interrogation rooms, a kitchenette, showers and 600 square feet more space. Boice said the project was unknown to the community and felt some members of the municipal government have been dishonest about it. Mayor Clarence Hogan signed a letter sent to Harrisburg dated Nov. 29, 2011 stating the project had community support, though he admitted during a public hearing on April 17 his comments were based on “word-of-mouth.” Boice contacted state legislators and officials Thursday asking for a formal investigation. “While I am 100 (percent) in favor of grants and making certain my small community receives its fair share, I want to make sure we go about it in

a fair and honest matter,” she wrote in an email. Boice said the project will cost taxpayers because she believes the recreation building needs more extensive work than what has been reported. The borough has had a deficit in the last two years. “I have other serious concerns about the deceit and

misrepresentations made on the part of our elected officials and would like to address them with the proper investigative authority,” Boice wrote. Boice said if she doesn’t hear from officials soon, she will continue to pursue the issue with other state authorities.

KINGSTON – A man charged Friday with taking explicit pictures of a 15-year-old boy initiated a pursuit with police on Interstate 81 that ended in a crash near the Central Scranton Expressway in Lackawanna County. The pursuit began in Wilkes-Barre Township just after 6 p.m. Thursday when township police attempted to stop a distraught driver, identified as Steven E. Brown, 26, of Stewart Street, Kingston, operating a 2006 Toyota Scion. Brown State police at Dunmore were advised that Brown had suicidal thoughts and was considered armed and dangerous. Brown was pursued for about 20 miles on the highway until he struck the rear of a tractor-trailer, state police said. During the pursuit, state police allege Brown collided with four vehicles involving nine people, including a 1year-old boy. Two people suffered minor injuries, state police said. Brown was transported to Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton. Brown was expected to surrender Friday on child pornography charges filed by Kingston police and the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office with District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston. According to the criminal complaint: A mother of a 15-year-old boy reported in March that her son was receiving harassing phone calls and text messages. She discovered a sexually explicit advertisement appeared on craigslist, an Internet auction site, which included her son’s cell phone number. The mother further reported that men were showing up at her residence looking for her son. Investigators learned that the advertisement was created on March 17 with a computer and phone number allegedly belonging to Brown. The 15-year-old boy told investigators he met Brown on an alternative website in late February 2012. A friendly relationship turned sexually explicit with Brown sending lewd pictures and videos to the boy. Brown also took nude photos of the boy lying on his bed, the criminal complaint says. Brown is charged with four counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of photographing or filming child pornography, and one count each of dissemination of sexual material involving a minor, corruption of minors, harassment and furnishing alcohol to a minor. He will be arraigned when he is released from the hospital.

Romney funds still low

itt Romney’s presidential campaign said it raised $12.6 million in M contributions in March, adding to roughly $14 million his Republican Party brought in last month. But the combined figure still puts Romney at a disadvantage with the man whose job he wants in November. President Barack Obama countered Romney’s fundraising haul with about $53 million in donations between his campaign and the Democratic Party during the same period. Yet a fire hose of cash from a major GOP “super” political committee is likely to bring some financial parity to the race, and Romney just recently started collecting funds for the general election.

NEW YORK

Adviser praises NY police

President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser praised the New York Police Department’s work Friday, saying the agency has struck an appropriate balance between keeping people safe and protecting their rights. “It’s not a trade-off between our security and our freedoms and our rights as citizens,” John Brennan said Friday in an appearance at NYPD headquarters. “I believe that that balance that we strike has been an appropriate one. We want to make sure that we’re able to optimize our security at the same time we optimize those freedoms that we hold and cherish so deeply.” The comments from the top counterterrorism official in the White House follow months of debate over an NYPD domestic intelligence operation.

Troops fire on protesters

Syrian troops fired tear gas and bullets on thousands of protesters who spilled out of mosques after noon prayers Friday, activists said. State media reported that bombs and shootings killed 17 soldiers as the latest diplomatic efforts failed to halt more than 13 months of bloodshed in the country. Opposition activists reported that at least 11 Syrian civilians were killed in regime shelling and other attacks Friday, the main day of the week for protests calling for the ouster of President Bashar Assad. The United Nations hopes to have 30 observers in Syria next week to monitor the tenuous cease-fire between regime troops and opposition. ST. LOUIS

$1.2M paid for Wagner card

A New Jersey man paid $1.2 million for a rare 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card in an online auction that brought interest from many potential buyers who had never owned a card before, the sale organizer said. The buyer hasn’t decided whether to come forward publicly, and the seller, a Houston businessman, wants to remain anonymous, said Bill Goodwin, the suburban St. Louis collectibles dealer who ran the auction that ended Friday. The buyer’s bid was the highest of 14 made since the auction began last month. Wagner was a member of the first class of Hall of Fame inductees. The shortstop, nicknamed “The Flying Dutchman,” spent most of his 21-year career (1897 to 1917) with the Pittsburgh Pirates, winning eight batting titles and hitting a career .327.

SANFORD, Fla. — A routine bail hearing for George Zimmerman took a surprising turn into remorse and explanation Friday when the neighborhood watch volunteer took the witness stand and told Trayvon Martin’s parents: “I am sorry for the loss of your son.” “I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not,” Zimmerman said, marking the first time he has spoken publicly about the Feb. 26 shooting of the unarmed black 17-yearold.

Defendants often testify about their financial assets at bail hearings, but it is highly unusual for them to address the charges, and rarer still to apologize. An attorney for Martin’s parents, who were in the courtroom when Zimmerman spoke, spurned the apology. The parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, had no comment as they left. “This was the most disingenuous and unfair thing I’ve seen,” said attorney Natalie

The price of a gallon could decline by 5 cents or more next week, experts say.

By CHRIS KAHN and SANDY SHORE AP Energy Writers

NEW YORK — The worst is over, for now. Gasoline prices are starting to fall. After a four-month surge pushed gasoline to nearly $4 per gallon in early April, drivers, politicians and economists worried that gasoline prices might soar past all-time highs, denting wallets, angering voters and dragging down an economy that is struggling to grow. Instead, pump prices have dropped 6 cents over two weeks to a national average on Friday of $3.88. Experts say gasoline could fall another nickel or more next week. Drivers might also get to say something they haven’t since October 2009 — they’re paying less at the pump than they did a year ago. “It’s nice, much more manageable,” said Mark Timko, who paid less than $4 per gallon Wednesday in the Chicago suburb of Burr Ridge, Ill., for the first time since March. “I wasn’t sure how high they were going to go this year.” Gasoline prices are lower than they were a year ago in 11 states, according to the Oil Price Information Service. At $3.88, the national average is still high, but it’s down from a peak of $3.94. Predictions of $5 gasoline earlier this year have — mercifully — evaporated. Tom Kloza, publisher and chief oil analyst at Oil Price Information Service, expects gasoline prices to drop to just above $3.80 by late next week. Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group, said the falling prices will put more money into the economy for Americans to spend elsewhere. A 10-cent drop in gasoline prices would mean drivers would have an extra $37 million per day to spend on other things. Gasoline prices have been pushed high by crude prices that have averaged $104 per barrel this year. World oil demand is expected to set a record this year and a series of production outages around the world have kept supplies low.

would like to hear from him. “He had always wanted to acknowledge what happened that day,” O’Mara said. “I was hoping that it could be accomplished in a private way. We weren’t afforded that opportunity.” Stacey Honowitz, a Florida prosecutor with no connection to the case, said: “I think it was to sway public opinion. He’s not incriminating himself. He is setting up his self-defense claim.” In agreeing to let Zimmerman out on bail, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said he cannot have any guns and must observe a 7 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew. Zimmerman also surrendered his passport. Zimmerman will need to put up 10 percent, or $15,000, to make bail. O’Mara said he expects the family to come up with the amount.

OSLO, Norway — Norwegians who lost loved ones on Utoya island relived the horror Friday as far-right fanatic Anders Behring Breivik described in harrowing detail how he gunned down teenagers as they fled in panic or froze before him, paralyzed with fear. Survivors and victims’ relatives hugged and sobbed, trying to comfort each other during the graphic testimony. Breivik “I’m going back to my hometown tonight. My husband, he’s going to drive me out to the sea, and I’m going to take a walk there and I’m going to scream my head off,” said Christin Bjelland, whose teenage son survived the attack. Breivik’s defense lawyers had warned their client’s testimony would be difficult to hear. Still, the shock was palpable in the 200-seat courtroom as the self-styled anti-Islamic militant rolled out his gruesome account, without any sign of emotion. A man who lost a son squeezed his eyes shut, his pain palpable. A man to his left put a comforting hand to his shoulder, while a woman to his right clutched onto him, resting her forehead against his arm. Breivik has confessed to the July 22 bombing-and-shooting rampage that killed 77 people — 69 on Utoya and eight in Oslo. But he rejects criminal guilt, saying the victims had betrayed Norway by embracing “Islamic colonization.”

All 127 feared dead in crash of Pakistan airliner By ZARAR KHAN Associated Press

ISLAMABAD — Emergency workers with flashlights searched the smoldering wreckage of a passenger jet carrying 127 people that crashed into a muddy wheat field Friday while trying to land in a violent thunderstorm at Islamabad’s main airport. The government said there appeared to be no survivors in the crash of the Boeing 737-200 near Benazir Bhutto International Airport — the second major air disaster in the Pakistani capital in less than two years. Sobbing relatives of those aboard the Bhoja Air flight from Karachi to Islamabad rushed to airports in both cities for news of their loved ones.

A Delaware County detective was on the Internet conducting an undercover investigation on Nov. 29, 2010 when she noticed a computer sharing 13 files of child pornography. The computer was traced to Bell’s residence, court papers say. A month later, police seized a computer, hard drive, storage devices and a number of compact discs and DVDs from Bell’s home. Bell admitted to investiga-

Bell allegedly told investigators he "accidentally downloaded child pornography and became addicted to it," police said. He claimed he tried to stop by deleting the videos and images from his computer. An examination of Bell’s computer equipment revealed 48 videos and three images of children engaged in sexual acts, according to court papers.

Former PTO official is charged with theft Beverly Daily of Dallas was treasurer of the Wycallis Elementary parent group.

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

KINGSTON TWP. – A former treasurer for an elementary school’s parent-teacher organization was charged Friday with stealing more than $4,300. Beverly Daily, 41, of Pine Drive, Dallas, surrendered with her attorney, Mark Mack, at the office of District Judge James Tupper where she was arraigned on a single count of theft. She was released on her own recognizance. Daily was treasurer of the Wycallis Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization from September to April 2, when she resigned. She could not be reached for comment. The alleged theft of money was reported to police on April 2 by PTO President Melissa Evans-Shaver, who could not be reached for comment.

Moosic lawyer battles 10-term Democratic incumbent

Cartwright’s cash rises, but Holden is king of PACs By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

In the past two weeks, Tim Holden’s campaign has reeled in more than $95,500 in contributions to aid his re-election efforts. The committee for his Democratic opponent in Tuesday’s primary election, Matt Cartwright, collected an additional $34,500. The two are contending in the17th Congressional District. But a review of the contributions shows that money given to Holden since April 4 is overwhelmingly from political action

committees or other political commit2 0 1 2 tees while CartELECTION wright hasn’t received one penny in that time period from those two types of committees. Cartwright has received money from plenty of attorneys and family members in the past two weeks. In addition to donations from Robert Munley, Julia Munley and Lora Munley – all members of his wife’s family – Cartwright also collected $1,000 from Lackawanna

Holden

County attorneys Mark T. Perry and Timothy Lenahan. A retiree named Virginia Ruggiero Lippi also donated $1,000, according to seven of what are known as “48-hour reports” filed since April 8 with the Federal Elec-

tion Commission. Holden’s 48-hour reports, of which there were six, were heavy with money from political action committees. In addition to $5,000 each from the American Federation of Teachers AFL-CIO, Synergy PAC, McKesson Corporation Employees Political Fund and the Committee on Letter Carriers PAC, he also got money from the Pork PAC, and PACs representing UPS, Fed Ex, the Nuclear Energy Institute, Aetna and Blue Cross of Pennsylvania.

When it came to individuals who live in the district, Holden received contributions from just two district residents since April 4: Pottsville resident Margaret Allen, contributed $1,000; and William Joyce, CEO of the Joyce Insurance Group of Pittston, who gave $1,526. The most recent complete campaign financial report shows money raised and spent by each campaign between Jan. 1 and April 4. That report showed Holden, the 10-term incumbent, raised $438,666 the first quarter of this

year. Cartwright, a Moosic attorney, reported $707,043 in contributions. That included a $380,000 personal loan he made to his campaign. Expenditures reported by Holden totaled $643,774 while Cartwright’s campaign spent $427,282. The winner of the primary battle will face lone Republican Laureen Cummings of Old Forge in November. Cummings’ financial report showed her campaign raised $205 the first quarter of the year and spent $17.25.

Luzerne County’s pension fund will have enough cash, manager Lawton says. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton said he has pinpointed cash to cover the county’s 2011 employee pension fund subsidy so fund investments won’t have to be liquidated to pay expenses. The fund’s investment adviser informed county officials Wednesday the fund has onlyenoughcash on hand to pay expenses through the end Lawton of April. Lawton said he doesn’t want to lose potential investment returns on theforcedsaleoffundinvestmentsto cover the $6.1million contribution. “I’ve identified enough funds to ensurethepensionsystemcanmake its payments without liquidating,” Lawton said. The county gradually put off payment of the pension subsidy in recentyears.Threeyearsago,theprioryear subsidy was paid the second week of January. Last year, the paymentwasn’treleaseduntiltheendof February. Lawton said pension subsidy delays are not the norm. “While apparently it’s not unusual for Luzerne County to pay its pension subsidy in the following fiscal year, I believe it’s uncommon among counties generally,” Lawton said. He wants to start making timely pension subsidy payments but doesn’t know if it will be possible to get fully caught up this year. The county is projected to owe another $8.3 million for 2012. The taxpayer subsidy was $3.4 million in 2008, $8.4 million in 2009 and $9 million in 2010. Inadditiontocausingcashflowissues, overdue subsidies delay investment of that money to generate returns and build the fund. Countytaxpayershavebeenstabilizing the county pension fund since 2002.

WILKES-BARRE – Gov. Tom Corbett’s “no tax pledge” has not worked, state Rep. Gerald Mullery told a group of business leaders Friday. Mullery, D-Newport Township, said while state taxes have remained steady, local school districts and municipalities have been forced to raise their taxes to balance budgets and fund services. “The governor just kicked the issue of taxes down to the

school districts and towns,” Mullery said. “With state funding cut, the districts and towns Mullery were forced to raise taxes. That’s not a no tax pledge.” Mullery made the comments at the annual Greater WilkesBarre Chamber of Commerce Legislative Breakfast at the Best Western Genetti Hotel & Conference Center. Also on a panel were state Sens. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, and John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, and state Reps. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-

Wilkes-Barre; Mike Carroll, DAvoca; Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston; Tarah Toohill, R-Butler Township, and Sid Michaels Kavulich, D-Taylor. Mullery said Harrisburg missed a huge opportunity to raise revenues by not taxing the Marcellus shale drilling industry. Transportation was discussed at length. Carroll, who sits on the House Transportation Committee, said travelers can expect more emergency road closures and lower truck weight limits due to the poor condition of roads and bridges. “It’s only going to get worse,” Carroll said. “We need a huge infusion of funding. Usually the way we increased revenues

was by increasing the tax on gasoline. But with gas prices at or near $4 per gallon, I don’t see that as an option.” Carroll predicted more detours and other inconveniences for motorists. The legislators talked about proposals to toll Interstates 80 and 81, but when asked for a show of support for that, few of the 200 people in attendance raised their hands. “We can’t get funding to keep up with the necessary maintenance of our roads and bridges,” Yudichak said. “So funding new projects is not going to happen soon.” Mullery criticized a legislative redistricting plan engineered by state Republicans. If

adopted, Mullery’s 119th District would stretch into the Hazleton area and some municipalities would be split between the 119th and the 116th districts. “There will be one public hearing in Harrisburg,” Mullery said. “I plan on testifying and I will offer a better plan.” Carroll said his 118th District could be “the poster child” for what he called “this flawed process.” “We will never have perfectly round or square districts,” Carroll said. “But we shouldn’t be splitting municipalities.” The legislators also discussed regionalization of municipal services and help for small businesses.

County set for letter explaining levee fee

About 1,500 lien notices are pending; 2,500 have already been filed. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

About 2,500 Wyoming Valley property owners who received lien notices for nonpayment of the Wyoming Valley Levee fee should have received a letter explaining the payment process and how to rectify any errors. County Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena said the company hired to handle billing and collect the fee is preparing a letter that will go to those property owners and to another 1,500 whose lien notices are pending. Brozena halted the additional mailing until the letters are sent next week by the company, the Don Wilkinson Agency. The liens are for delinquent 2009 and 2010 levee fees, he said. Brozena said the prothonotary’s office, which issues liens, has been flooded with inquiries and cannot assist property owners with payments. Affected property owners who need more information should contact the Centax Group, which is affiliated with Don Wilkinson, at 412-221-1701, Brozena said. The company also set up an email to process inquiries: levee@centaxgroup.com. County officials warned over a year ago that liens would be filed against property owners who don’t pay. The fee was implemented in 2009 to fund levee maintenance tied to flood control, removing the expense from the county’s strapped general fund operating budget. The fee is expected to generate $1.13 million this year. Fee critics say all county residents should help pay to keep the levee up to flood control standards, while supporters say the burden should fall on properties that directly benefit. The fee, imposed on 14,197 properties in low-lying, leveeprotected areas, ranges from $46.85 to $93.70 for residential properties and $93.70 to $676.44 for commercial, industrial and tax-exempt properties.

Collins followed for driving without brake lights. When Kelly saw Collins approaching on foot after parking his police vehicle, Kelly shoved the packets into his jacket. Collins tried to force Kelly’s hands behind his back and take him into custody, but Kelly resisted, punched the officer in the face and ran away. Collins fired his Taser but Kelly’s baggy jacket prevented the weapon from delivering an electrical charge. Collins chased Kelly who was

later subdued by an unidentified man near the intersection of Spruce and Blackman streets. Officer Kevin Steve arrived and assisted with the arrest. Kelly had one packet of heroin and a knife with a blade taped open. Kelly, 40, of 277 Poplar St., was charged with aggravated assault, escape, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, possession of a controlled substance and harassment, arraigned by District Judge Rick Cronauer and com-

mitted to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $20,000 bail.

OTHER OPINION: FUNDING CUTS

Welfare goes by the wayside

T

HE DEPARTMENT of Public Welfare is using a license to reform as justification for ending a government monopoly on programs that provide in-home care to seniors and dramatically cutting funding for those with mental health or mental retardation issues. The development surprised local lawmakers after they had voted for the law. Called Act 22, the measure was intended to combat waste and fraud in social services. Much of the guiding legislation directs in detail how the Welfare Department is supposed to drug-test welfare recipients and otherwise assure that assistance goes to law-abiding, needy people. Tucked in the legislation, though, are broad powers designed to allow the Welfare Department to adjust the way it does business in the aim of ensuring that the agency’s bottom line jibes with funding goals. The law specifically bars the EDITORIAL BOARD

Welfare Department from exceeding its budgeted costs. A Department of Public Welfare spokeswoman said the intent of the shift away from the county aging departments is to give people greater choice and to use competition to control costs. Opponents of the move contend that the switch will create more confusion than needed when the county agencies have demonstrated that they are doing an admirable job providing service at savings not matched elsewhere. While the aging money is merely being shifted out of the county’s control, the funding for mental health service is being eliminated. The program in question is specifically designed to help keep adults with mental health issues in the community rather than in psychiatric hospitals. With the funding gone, many of those people might end up in the hospital at a cost triple what the county now spends. The Daily Item, Sunbury

here have been several articles in the news recently about the state of unemployment compensation in Pennsylvania. In those articles, some people have recommended higher taxes on employers to address the insolvency of Pennsylvania’s UC Trust Fund and the resulting nearly $4 billion UC debt to the federal government, pointing out that UC taxes on Pennsylvania employers are based on only the first $8,000 workers earn annually. As an organization, we cannot support this approach. The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber believes the state needs to take a comprehensive approach to this problem, not one of simply piling more and higher taxes on Pennsylvania’s already overtaxed employers. In 2011, Pennsylvania employers paid, on average, the highest UC tax rate on taxable wages in the country. When you factor the $8,000 level, our employers still paid the 12th highest average UC tax in the nation. Pennsylvania ranked third nationally in UC Trust Fund revenue last year, and this does not take into account hundreds of millions of additional dollars that employers here are being charged to start paying off the debt and service the interest. On the other hand, only two states paid more benefits in 2011, and Pennsylvania had the nation’s second-highest percentage of unemployed individuals receiving benefits. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor estimates that between July 2008 and June 2011, Pennsylvania’s fraud rate was 4.87 percent, compared to the national average of 2.51 percent. This amounts to more than $566 million in fraudulent payments during this three-year period alone. The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce believes this data clearly demonstrate that the best solution to the potential trust fund solvency issue is a comprehensive one. Unemployment compensation is a critical means of providing temporary support between jobs for Pennsylvanians who were formerly attached to the workforce and unfortunately lost their jobs through no fault of their own. It is imperative that lawmakers take action to achieve solvency of the trust fund and thereby guarantee the future of this critical safety net without deterring job creation in Pennsylvania.

Could dream park project become tax nightmare?

M

y dream seemed to have come true. The home rule charter brought a new form of government to Luzerne County. This new county manager, I thought, will stop the endless cycle of increasing debt and taxes on the backs of taxpayers. I guess my dream will remain only a dream. The new manager’s oversight of the county engineer has resulted in a new dream for Moon Lake Park. The county has done it again. It found a new way to spend tax dollars. As you might remember, it was not too long ago that we heard about how the county could barely afford to keep Moon Lake Park open. County employees are being laid off, and the tremendous debt continues to increase. Nevertheless, under the oversight and guidance of the new manager, the county apparently is using the engineers to spend countless hours designing a new way to spend $37 million on a dream project at the park. The county engineer told the public not to get nervous about the estimated cost. In the county engineer’s words, “If someone came in here with a large donation of $40 million, this is probably how we would develop the park.” So why am I still nervous? Because the county manager and engineer seem to feel the best way to spend their time and our tax dollars is on designing a $37 million dream park that will only “probably” be built if someone comes in to the county and drops a $40 million donation on the manager’s desk. What is more likely to happen? Will someone walk in off the street with a $40 million donation, or will the taxpayers pay for the $37 million dream park that probably will end up costing $50 million or $60 million? Community development is a wonderful thing. I hope that, someday, county officials become more careful in the way they spend our money and we can then afford such dream projects. Until then, keep dreaming. But not with my money.

high as $200,000 in the cafeteria, run by Aramark, District Business Manager Joe Rodriguez said, but “We’ve been put on alert that things are subject to change” this year. Aramark has said lunch prices may have to increase by 10 cents, more than the 6-cent per-meal increase in federal subsidies designed to offset the higher cost of meeting the new mandates. A cut in the cafeteria profits now would come at a bad time, Rodriguez noted. The district is expanding one school and closing two others, and likely will need money for new kitchen equipment at the expanded school. Dallas School District contracts food services with Aramark as well, Business Manager Grant Palfey said, and usually runs either a small profit -- $2,000 to $20,000 typically -- or breaks even. In order to break even next year, the School Board has already voted to increase lunch prices by 15 cents, he added. But with the new mandates, the district has been told it may have to hike prices another 13.5 cents to break even, Palfey said.

But it’s what he promised to do if elected president that’s grabbing the attention of voters, he said. “First I promise to submit a balanced budget to Congress in the year 2013,” Johnson said. The country cannot continue to spend money it does not have and go further into debt, he added. If the United States does not reduce federal spending, he said, it will be in the same position as Greece’s “160 percent of debt to (gross domestic product),” the sum of all goods and services produced within its borders. Next on his list, he said, “I promise to veto any legislation where expenses exceed revenue.” Congress can override his veto, but it will be under public pres-

widely discussed. Northwest Area School Board approved a 5cent increase in breakfast prices and a 20-cent increase in lunch prices, Superintendent Ronald Grevera said. The district usually breaks even, but had expected a loss this year which didn’t materialize. “At this point we’re about $1,000 in the black,” Grevera said, adding that “we’re expecting about a $4,000 loss next year.” Districts could theoretically ignore the mandates, but that would mean losing federal subsidies for the free and reduced lunch program.

sure to balance the budget, he said. “Lastly, I promise to advocate on the part of throwing out the entire federal tax system,” he said. Under his proposal the income tax, corporate tax, tax withholding, the Internal Revenue Service all would be replaced with a consumption tax. Federal spending still would have to be cut by $1.4 trillion because the tax is revenue neutral, he explained. As a governor he worked with Democrats and Republicans and said voters want a president who can do so. Johnson acknowledged he and Republican presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas share the same group of fiscally conservative and socially tolerant supporters. “I think that he and I for the most part are talking the same message,” said Johnson. But he doesn’t see Paul taking the nomination from former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

percent of 7,060 students enrolled in 2011 were receiving free or reduced lunches. At Hazleton Area, it was 63 percent. Dallas and Crestwood are at the other end of the scale among Luzerne County districts, with 20.2 and 15.8 percent in the federal program, respectively. Even with the price increases being discussed, local school lunches likely will be below $2.46 per meal, a figure used in the new “Equity in school lunch pricing provision” of the federal law mandating all the changes. Federal pricing rules According to a fact sheet from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the equity provision is designed to make sure that districts are not charging less for paid

lunches than it costs to produce those lunches. Such pricing “effectively increases federal subsidies for higher income children because federal funds intended for free and reduced price lunches are being used to fill in the gap between what a paid lunch costs and what the school receives for it,” the fact sheet notes. To prevent this, the equity provision requires small annual increases in paid lunch prices by districts that meet various criteria, one of which is having lunch prices, on average, below the $2.46 mark. No local district hits that price, but there are other provisions that could exempt a district from having to raise prices. Farley said districts don’t have to raise prices if the cafeteria operation is profitable. Besides, she added, more details are on the way. “We’re still waiting for clarifications from the federal government” on some aspects of the new law, Farley said. One other concern about the new law: Potential waste. Grevera praised the effort to get students to eat healthier with larger servings of fresh fruits and vegetable, more whole grains and reductions in sodium, but worries that students will take the extra portions and opt not to eat them. “If kids do take the vegetable and don’t want the vegetable and throw it out, it’s a waste,” Grevera said. With districts facing tight budgets, “I don’t like to see waste.”

It is unknown when normal patterns will resume. • Kingston plans to do extensive repairs on Pierce Street in the next 14 months. • PennDOT and WilkesBarre plan to reduce traffic lanes on South River Street after the bridge work is done. Work on the downriver side of the bridge – what had been the eastbound lanes – began Friday and is expected to wrap up this fall. Work will then switch to the upriver lanes. Until work is completed, traffic will be limited to a single lane in each direction. PennDOT District 4 spokesman James May conceded that motorists probably have been using the Veterans Memorial Bridge in greater numbers to avoid the Sterling detour and that lane closures will probably slow traffic, but said the bridge work was planned long before the Sterling detour was put in place and couldn’t wait. “It’s just one of those situations that at this point we don’t feel it would be wise to put off,” May said. “Especially not knowing the end date of the Sterling detour.” May added that PennDOT would monitor how the bridge work affects traffic and work with Wilkes-Barre to alleviate jam-ups where possible. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Thomas Leighton said the Sterling detour remains a concern, but he is happy PennDOT is proceeding

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson visited Wilkes-Barre Friday for the Libertarian Party state convention and the Restoring Freedom program.

The Restoring Freedoms will conclude Sunday with a bus trip to Philadelphia to hear Paul speak. Johnson welcomed Paul’s supporters as well as other Republicans and Democrats. Historically, Democrats have

been known for supporting civil liberties and the Republicans for balancing the checkbook, he said. “I think the Libertarian Party takes the best from both Republicans and Democrats,” said Johnson.

thing to do with Etan’s vanishing, which helped turn missing children into a nationwide cause. Authorities said they had yet to find any new evidence as of Friday, and the police commissioner and the FBI said they wouldn’t discuss any possible suspects. It’s unclear what the renewed probe may turn up, if anything. But if it leads definitively away from Pennsylvania prisoner Jose A. Ramos and to someone else, it could create a legal conundrum: one person held accountable for the boy’s death in civil court while anotherbecamethefocusofacriminal case. On Friday, investigators were using jackhammers and saws to carefully break through the basement’s concrete floor, pulling rubble out and carrying it out of the building withglovedhands,asananthropologist stood by in case any human

remains were found; the work concluded for the day around 6 p.m. but was expected to continue over several days. The debris was to be taken elsewhere and tested, a process that could last into next week, chief police spokesman Paul Browne said. The basement is in a building that was on Etan’s way to the bus stop from the SoHo building where his parents still live. At the time, handymanOthnielMiller,whowas friendly with the Patz family, was using the underground space as a workshop. Miller, now 75, is cooperating with investigators and had “no involvement in this tragic event,” his lawyer, Michael C. Farkas, told journalists gathered outside Miller’s Brooklyn home on Friday. Investigators decided to refocus theirattentiononthebuildingafter recently speaking again to Miller,

whom they had interviewed several times over the years. Among the first vanished children to appear on a milk carton, Etan became a symbol of a movement to draw attention to child safety — the day of his disappearance, May 25, became National Missing Children’s Day. The case has bedeviled investigators as leads emerged and fizzled over the years; Etan, never found, was officially declared dead in 2001. Ramos, a drifter whose girlfriend was Etan’s sometime baby sitter, has been publicly floated as a possible culprit since the 1980s. Now 68, he is serving a 10-to-20year sentence at the Dallas state prisonafterpleadingguiltytoabusing an 8-year-old boy at a campground there. He is due to be released in November.

ing building a hydropower station on the dam. In November it submitted a preliminary permit application with FERC, proposing to study the feasibility of a project consisting of a 600-foot-long, 16-foot-wide steel pipe attached to the existing dam outlet, a 50-by-75-foot concrete powerhouse, two 4.5-megawatt generators, a channel to direct water back to the Lehigh River and a half-mile power transmission line connecting the dam to an existing PPL distribution line. Company owner Vincent Lamarra did not return a request for comment. The dam is owned and operated

by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is open for power plant development, but the Corps would have the opportunity to comment on an FERC application, said George Sauls, Northern Area Engineer for the Corps’ Philadelphia District. Sauls was skeptical that it would be developed, though, because the idea has been debated and abandoned in the past.

anyone building a dam, he said. “The hydropower at Walter has been a lot of talk and nothing else,” Sauls said. “There have been a number of preliminary permits issued over the years but nothing’s gone any further than that. The biggest issues is economic viability … There hasn’t been any development because there hasn’t been a scheme that’s been developed that’s been economically viable.” Obtaining the Corps’ approval, which would help in obtaining an FERC permit, would also mean not compromising the dam’s intended uses, and that could cut into a power plant operator’s bottom line, Sauls said.

Completion of the $14.6-million sale is included in the funding of the stadium reconstruction. The sale also includes a lease agreement for the team to resume playing in Moosic after spending this season on the road. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees are using six different stadiums for “home” games this season.

The rest of the work focused on stopping leaks above the roofline that are damaging interior plaster and artwork. A special two-person lift will The dam’s federally mandated purposes are flood control and recreation. Rather than releasing water daily, the Corps opens the dam only periodically, which creates fast-moving currents used by whitewater rafters and enhances trout fishing on the Lehigh River, Sauls said. But dams that are released daily are typically the most efficient for power production, he said.

Kingston administrator Paul Keating said that project will be paid for by a PennDOT K-Route grant that must be used by June 30, 2013. “We cannot walk away from $900,000 of funding to repair a road that is property of the municipality of Kingston,” Keating said. “It’s not a state road, and I think that’s a big bonus for our taxpayers to be able to pay for this with grant funds and no tax dollars.” “It just makes perfect sense to coordinate this with the bridge resurfacing because it’s going to be one complete project from the Wilkes-Barre side of the bridge to Wyoming Avenue,” he added. “It’s time to prepare people for short-term inconvenience for long-term progress.” More construction also is planned for downtown WilkesBarre in coming years, with PennDOT and the city collaborating on a plan to reduce traffic lanes on River Street, but May said work on the bridge likely will have be completed before that project begins. the opportunity to build a team of talented and committed professionals that are second to none, and appreciate the strong relationships we have formed with our fans and our sponsors,” Rose said, according to the press release. “I remain optimistic about the future of baseball in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, especially with the reconstructed stadium coming online. “Although I will miss being a part of the next chapter, I am excited about my new venture.” Matin thanked Rose for her “hard work” with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees during a time of uncertainty. “We are extremely enthusiastic about where the franchise is headed and we look forward with great anticipation to having our team back for the 2013 season in a stadium that we’re confident all fans will be both excited by and proud of,” Matin said. be set up in the courthouse rotunda shortly after Tuesday’s election for inspectors to take samples of water-damaged artwork and plaster inside the dome.

That didn’t mean the Penguins were going to take Hershey lightly, and they were put to the test in the opening minute when a bench minor gave the Bears a power play.

By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

LEHMAN TWP. – Ten days ago, Lake-Lehman saw victory slip painfully away on its artificial turf. Friday’s game looked like it might be heading that way after pretty smooth sailing for 78 minutes. But after Berwick converted a penalty kick with1:57 left in regulation, the Black Knights withstood one final LAKE-LEHMAN assault to hold on for a 2-1 victory in a Wyoming Valley ConferBERWICK ence interdivisional game. Lehman improved to 5-2 in Division 1-B. Berwick fell to 4-2-1 in Division 1-A. “It was a big win for us to beat a team in the upper division,� Lehman coach Kelly Adamshick said. “We played our game. We stepped to the ball, passed and moved. Beautiful goals.� Lehman had another beauty going on April 10 against Crestwood. The Black Knights led 5-2 into the second half, but then fell 6-5 in overtime. The Black Knights got off to an excellent start, scoring before the first minute had elapsed. Fresh-

HANOVER TWP. – Katie Pelak’s injured rotator cuff means that if she’s playing, she’s playing in pain. Pelak overcame her pain and inflicted some on Northwest, leading Hanover Area to a 7-5 victory in a battle of Wyoming Valley Conference Division II softball unbeatens FriHANOVER day. AREA “It hurts pretty much when I throw and when I swing,� Pelak NORTHWEST said. “But I pushed through.� The Hawkeyes’ catcher struggled at the plate because of the injury, except when her team needed her the most. With the game tied at 5 in the fourth inning, Pelak laced a double to the fence in right-center field to score Caitlyn Bogart and Brittany McNair with the game-winning runs. “We were strong hitting the ball, but we hit a lot right at them,� Hanover Area (5-0 WVC) coach Tami Thomas said. “But we came through at the right time to finally beat Northwest here (it was Thomas’ first home win against the Rangers in her three seasons).� Pelak was also strong defensively despite her injury.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Chavez hits 2 HRs, Yanks top Red Sox The Associated Press

BOSTON — Alex Rodriguez took over fifth place with his 631st career home run, Eric Chavez added two homers and the New York Yankees spoiled the Boston Red Sox 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway Park with a 6-2 win Friday. Rodriguez’ solo shot on the first pitch of the fifth inning put him past Ken Griffey Jr. and 29 homers behind Willie Mays’ fourth-place total of 660. Nick Swisher and Russell Martin also connected for New York, and Derek Jeter moved into 18th place with his 3,111th career hit, passing Dave Winfield. The victory came exactly 100 years after the Red Sox beat the Yankees’ forerunner, the New York Highlanders, 7-6 in 11 innings, and one day after Curtis Granderson hit three of New York’s four homers in a 7-6 win over the Minnesota Twins. Clay Buchholz (1-1) allowed all five homers in losing for the first time in 12 starts. Josh Beckett also served up five homers in the Red Sox second game of the year, a 10-0 loss at Detroit. Ivan Nova (3-0) won his 15th consecutive regular-season start, allowing two runs on seven hits with no walks and five strikeouts in six innings. Both teams wore throwback uniforms similar to those used in Fenway’s first major-league game. The Red Sox had offwhite uniforms and caps with the only printing on either being the words “Red Sox” in red across the chest. The Yankees uniforms were all grey with the only printing the letters “NY” on the caps and left breast. It is believed to be the first time the Yankees have worn throwbacks. The Red Sox lost their fourth straight game, a span in which they’ve been outscored

31-8. Some outstanding players took the field for the Red Sox. Unfortunately, most of them were among the about 200 retirees who strolled to their positions during pre-game ceremonies marking the anniversary. They included Hall-ofFamers Carl Yastrzemski, Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice, Bobby Doerr and Dennis Eckersley plus Pedro Martinez, Luis Tiant, Nomar Garciaparra, Mo Vaughn and Johnny Pesky. Twins 5, Rays 4

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Josh Willingham extended his season-opening hitting streak to 14 games with a go-ahead three-run double and the Minnesota Twins beat the Tampa Bay Rays. Willingham’s hit in the seventh off Joel Peralta puts him one away from tying Kirby Puckett’s team mark of hitting safely in 15 straight games to start the 1994 season. The Twins also got two RBIs from Joe Mauer, who went 2 for 3 with two walks. Mauer is 31 for 70 overall at Tropicana Field. Blue Jays 4, Royals 3

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jose Bautista singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays turned their first triple play in 33 years, beating Kansas City to hand the slumping Royals their eighth straight defeat. Kansas City had runners on first and second in the third inning when Eric Hosmer lined out to first baseman Adam Lind, who stepped on the bag to double off Yuniesky Betancourt. Lind then fired to shortstop Yunel Escobar to retire Alex Gordon, who had strayed off second. It was Toronto’s first triple play since Sept. 21, 1979, against the New York Yankees.

Sanchez delivers win for San Fran in 10th The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Hector Sanchez hit a go-ahead single in the 10th inning off Frank Francisco, and the San Francisco Giants came back after blowing the lead in the ninth and just hung on to beat the New York Mets 4-3 Friday night. Angel Pagan homered in his return to Citi Field as San Francisco built a 3-0 lead in the third for Barry Zito, but solo home runs by Jason Bay in the fourth and rookie Kirk Nieuwenhuis in the fifth started New York’s comeback. Reds 9, Cubs 4

CHICAGO — Drew Stubbs had three hits and drove in three runs to lead the Cincinnati Reds to a win over the Chicago Cubs — the 10,000th victory in franchise history. Homer Bailey (1-2) gave up four runs, just one earned, over seven innings to get his first win of the year. Chris Volstad (0-2) was charged with six runs, five earned, over five innings. He gave up four in the first inning as Cincinnati batted around for the first time this season. Jay Bruce and Devin Mesoraco had two hits apiece and Chris Heisey drove in two runs for the Reds.

rez with two on to end the eighth after walking Emilio Bonifacio on 14 pitches. Henry Rodriguez walked two in the ninth but still earned his fourth save as Washington improved to 11-4. Cardinals 4, Pirates 1

PITTSBURGH — Lance Lynn allowed only an insidethe-park homer to Alex Presley in seven innings, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Presley led off the bottom of the first with a drive off the top of the center field fence. It was just the Pirates’ second insidethe-parker at PNC Park since it opened in 2001. Dodgers 3, Astros 1

HOUSTON — Matt Kemp homered again, one of his three hits, and drove in two runs to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a win over the Houston Astros.

guin. “I’ve been saving it for when it matters,” he joked. “It does feel great to finally contribute. Everyone’s trying to set me up, and to get one in is good for my confidence.” O’Reilly’s goal gave the Penguins a 2-0 lead midway through the second period and the offense was clicking. So was the defense, which limited Hershey to just five shots at the halfway point of the game. “That was the best game we played as a team since I’ve been here,” O’Reilly said of the effort at both ends of the ice. Later in the second period, the Hershey offense showed some life and generated 10 shots on Thiessen. The biggest threat occurred when Kyle Greentree snuck into the low slot and slammed a shot on net that Thiessen snared with his glove. “Brad played well and he did what we expected him to do,” said Hynes, who waited until Friday to announce his starting goaltender. McDonald scored his second of the night midway through the third period when he carried the puck on a two-on-one with Geoff Walker. Skating down the half-wall, McDonald skated into the faceoff circle and blasted a slapshot past Dany Sabourin to give the Penguins a 3-0 lead. Hershey broke the shutout with a goal at 18:08, but it was all the offense the Bears could muster. Despite a solid effort and the fact that the Penguins didn’t have a repeat of last season’s playoffs when they blew a three-goal lead and were eliminated by Charlotte, McDonald cautioned that they can’t rely on their confidence going into Game 2. “You have to be careful of that word,” he said. “We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. We have to forget about tonight and worry about tomorrow.” NOTES • C Cody Chupp, C Matt Rust, C Adam Payerl, LW Steve MacIntyre, D Peter Merth, LW Ryan Schnell, LW Chris Barton, D Andrew Hotham and G Patrick Killeen were scratched for the Penguins. • The Bears skated without regulars C Christian Hanson, D Zach Miskovic and D Julien Brouillette. • Game 2 is back at the Mohegan Sun Arena at 7:05 tonight.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — David Legwand scored 13 seconds into the third period, and the Nashville Predators advanced to the Western Conference semifinals with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night. The fourth-seeded Predators won the series 4-1, capping a season in which they finished ahead of their Central Division rival for the first time, and beat the Red Wings for the first time in their third playoff series. Nashville made it even sweeter by handing the Red Wings their earliest postseason departure since a six-game first-round loss to Edmonton in 2006. The Predators became the first team to advance this postseason, and they could face No. 3 seed Phoenix in the second round. The Coyotes lead the Chicago 3-1. Legwand added an assist, and Alexander Radulov also had a goal and assist for Nashville. The team that scored first won each game, and that was Nashville again. Jiri Hudler scored for Detroit, which heads into the summer

having lost three straight waiting to see if captain Nicklas Lidstrom has played his last game after 20 seasons. The Predators won the final three in needing only five goals by outshooting and outhitting the older Red Wings. They got the winning goal from Legwand, a native of the Detroit area, who scored on a wrister off an assist from Gabriel Bourque and Radulov. The Red Wings took a timeout with 3.1 seconds left after Henrik Zetterberg missed a rebound and the puck was iced. They added some time, putting the clock at 4.2 seconds. It just wasn’t enough as the Predators cleared the puck to start the celebration. Legwand’s goal started the sold-out crowd counting down the final minutes, eager to celebrate this former expansion franchise’s biggest victory yet against the Detroit team Nashville always has measured itself against. Fans even gathered outside the arena watching on a giant TV, and those inside gave the Predators three standing ovations in the third period during timeouts.

Stoudemire returns, but Knicks still lose The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Amare Stoudemire’s return from a back injury didn’t help the playoff-bound New York Knicks, who were stunned 98-90 by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Stoudemire had missed New York’s previous 13 games with a bulging disk. But even with him in the lineup, the Knicks couldn’t handle the Cavs, who snapped a three-game losing streak and won for just the fourth time in 19 games. Stoudemire finished with 15 points and Carmelo Anthony had 12 before sitting out the fourth quarter. Manny Harris had 19 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Cavs, and rookie Kyrie Irving scored 21 in his second game back from a shoulder injury. Harris banked in a desperation 3-pointer from 42 feet as the 24-second shot clock expired in the fourth to keep Cleveland comfortably ahead.

tory. Kennedy put Pittsburgh in front to stay just over 3 minutes later, ripping a shot past Bryzgalov. And this time, a one-goal advantage in this wide-open series was enough. Fleury, who came in with an unsightly 5.43 goals-against average and an .817 save percentage overcame four games of shaky play with 20 brilliant minutes in the third period. He made seven saves alone during a Philadelphia power play early in the third period, one of a dozen he made in the period as the Penguins stayed alive on a night when stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were held without a point. The Flyers insisted the whipping they received in Game 4 was an aberration. If they were rattled, it didn’t show, at least in the first period. Carle scored his first goal of the postseason — thanks in part to a brilliant screen by Danny Briere right in front of Fleury — from the point with 2 seconds

lanta Hawks edged the shorthanded Boston Celtics to take a step toward landing homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Hawks (38-25) are in line to be the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, and Celtics (37-27) are on track to be No. 5. This, however, looked nothing like a playoff game early. Grizzlies 85, Bobcats 80 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Mike Conley had 18 points and seven assists as the Memphis Grizzlies beat Charlotte to extend the Bobcats’ franchiseworst losing streak to 19 games. The Grizzlies overcame an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter and then held on to get an important victory in terms of playoff seeding in the Western Conference. On the 25-year anniversary of Michael Jordan scoring an NBA playoff-record 63 points against the Boston Celtics, the team Jordan now owns took a step closer toward cementing a dubious spot in league history.

left on a power play to put the Flyers up 1-0 just over 8 minutes into the game. Going ahead early has been a dubious honor in this series. The team that scored first has gone on to lose every time. And in typical fashion, it didn’t take the Penguins long to respond. Sullivan saved a sloppy power play — including one sequence in which Crosby and Malkin slammed into each other — by tapping in a pass from Kris Letang to tie it. The Penguins, however, failed to play with the composure that highlighted the final two periods of Game 4. Malkin and Craig Adams went to the box with penalties, and Hartnell scored on the ensuing 5 on 3. On the brink of having a season with Stanley Cup hopes come to a stunningly quick end, however, the Penguins responded by ditching flashy play for more basic, responsible hockey over the final two periods. It was enough to send the series back to Philadelphia, where the pressure will be squarely on the Flyers, who will try to avoid becoming the fourth team in NHL history to lose a seven-game series after winning the first three games.

Yankees take 3rd straight victory

Cougars defeat King’s by seven The Times Leader staff

Heart of order delivers at the plate with five hits, three runs and two RBI. The Times Leader staff

BATAVIA, N.Y. – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees picked up their third straight victory on Friday night behind strong performances from Steve Pearce and Jack Cust. The team’s Nos. 4 and 5 hitters combined to go 5-for-9 with three runs scored and two RBI as the Yankees came back from a pair of tworun deficits to defeat NorYANKEES folk 6-4 at Dwyer Stadium, home of the New YorkTIDES Penn League’s Batavia Muckdogs. The big inning for SWB came in the bottom of the eighth while trailing 4-3. The Yankees took their first lead of the night when Pearce doubled to score Dewayne Wise, then came around to score on a single by Brandon Laird to give the Yankees a 5-4 advantage. A safety squeeze by Pena later in the stanza scored Laird for a 6-4 lead. With Juan Cedeno getting the save chance in the ninth because Yankees closer Kevin Whelan had the night off, Cedeno had an interesting outing. The first two batters reached base against him when Luis Exposito doubled and moved to third on a single by Jamie Hoffman. But he got a strikeout and a double-play groundball to end the game. Norfolk jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, getting three hits and two runs before Ramon Ortiz recorded an out. Xavier Avery led off the game with a home run that sailed over the right field wall. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre scored a run in the bottom of the second – the first allowed this season by Tides pitcher Jason Berken in 10-plus innings – when Cust singled, moved to second on a walk by Laird and scored when Kevin Russo singled and Norfolk left fielder Avery committed an error. The Yankees handed Berken his first earned run allowed this season in the bottom of the fourth after Pearce doubled and scored when Cust tripled to tie the score at 2. This season, Berken has allowed one earned run in 15 innings. The Tides regained a 3-2 lead on an RBI-single by Scott Beerer for a 3-2 lead in the fifth. Joe Mahoney singled home Matt Antonelli for a 4-2 advantage in the sixth. A Colin Curtis single in the bottom of the seventh to score Ramiro Pena pulled the Yankees within one at 4-3.

man Aleaha Blazick scored amid a group of players for her first goal of the season. Shoshana Mahoney assisted. Lehman struck again in the waning minutes of the first half. Morgan Goodrich passed to Emily Sutton in the right part of the penalty area to start the play. Sutton flatfooted a defender with a quick move to score. Caty Davenport gave Berwick a couple solid scoring opportunities early in the second half, but then the momentum went back to Lehman and stayed that way. Stayed that way until a handball in the penalty area gave Berwick a penalty kick with 1:57 to play. Abby Takacs nailed it inside the left post and at the same time added some life to an offense that had stagnated. The Dawgs moved the ball dangerously close to the goal after the penalty kick, only to have Lehman’s Hannah Stull break up the advance. That led to consecutive corner kicks. On the first, keeper Denae Sutliff slapped away a header by Berwick’s Brianna Floryshak to the right post. The other never made it on the field. The game was another offensive struggle for Berwick against an opponent with a winning re-

today will provide the first hints of the Lions’ new schemes implemented by O’Brien and defensive coordinator Ted Roof. “It’s a huge deal here. I understand that, I really do,” O’Brien said of the Blue-White Game. “And I know that there’s going to be a lot of people here, and I think that’s great, I really do. But for us as a football team, it’s another opportunity to get better. So for us, it’ll be treated like a game scrimmage. “I’ll be calling plays, Ted will be calling the defense and that will be our final chance before heading into the summer to evaluate our football team.” On top of the new coaches and new schemes, the game itself is getting a makeover. The contest itself still kicks off at 2 p.m. with parking and admission remaining free. But rather than a traditional divvying up of the roster into two full teams, today’s game will pit the defense (Blue) against the offense (White) with a scoring system based on big plays by both sides. Where Paterno used to meet with the media before the scrimmage and watch the game from the radio booth and provide live commentary, O’Brien will be down on the sideline overseeing everything and answering questions afterward. “It’s been fun for us,” said linebacker Michael Mauti, who will sit out today as a precaution while recovering from knee surgery. “Coach O’Brien has been very intense and he’s bringing a lot of energy. I know a lot of guys have been eagerly anticipating (today) and a new era to be here.” Spring ball may officially be ending, but O’Brien’s job of rebuilding the reputation of the program – and the university – will ramp up next month. O’Brien will be leading a “coaches caravan,” touring 18 stops in seven states and the District of Columbia from

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com

W H O T O W AT C H Some of Penn State’s top players like linebacker Michael Mauti won’t be suiting up for today’s Blue-White Game. Others, like tailback Silas Redd, likely won’t play more than a few series. With plenty of new names and faces to keep track of throughout the scrimmage, here’s a rundown of a few Nittany Lions to keep an eye on throughout the afternoon.

7 QB Paul Jones

April 30-May 16. That includes a pair of stops in NEPA – 11:30 a.m. on May 8 at Penn State Hazleton’s Caccese Gymnasium followed by a 6:30 p.m. stop on May 10 at Genetti’s in Dickson City. “I felt it was important to get out and meet people around the state and surrounding states,” O’Brien said. “Penn State is a special place with a huge alumni network.” One of 10 coaches who will be traveling around the region to meet with fans and alumni, O’Brien will be the only one to attend all 18 events on the tour, which begins in Philadelphia and ends in Buffalo, N.Y. The new boss of the Lions is hoping that this recruiting effort goes as well as Penn State’s work with current high school juniors. Three of the Lions’ eight verbal commitments were ranked in the recently released ESPN 150 – quarterback Christian Hackenberg (No. 1 pocket passer, No. 11 recruit in the nation), tight end Adam Breneman (No. 2 tight end, No. 39 overall) and defensive tackle Greg Webb (No. 11 defensive tackle, No. 123 overall). All eight of those commits are expected to be on the sideline today along with a significant part of the incoming freshman class that signed this past February. “The more you can practice simulating a game, then when you get to the opportunity game itself, the operation of the game can be that much easier for you,” O’Brien said. “So to us, I think it’s great that it’s a big day here, and I’m excited for the fans coming out. I can’t wait to meet a lot of people. But it’s very much of a business day for us.”

The spring game is the only look fans have gotten of the sophomore with the big arm, who redshirted in 2010 and missed the 2011 season for academic reasons. Matt McGloin will likely exit the spring as the favorite to reclaim the starting job under center, but the 6-foot-3 Jones is certainly a wildcard in competition. Coaches have been blown away by his arm strength, though his accuracy has been scrutinized.

5 TB Bill Belton Redd, still dealing with tendonitis in his knee, won’t see a heavy workload. Backups Curtis Dukes (academics) and Derek Day (ankle) won’t play. That leaves more snaps for the intriguing Belton, who played as at receiver as a true freshman, who gave a spark out of the wildcat package last November. Fullback Zach Zwinak has also been practicing as a tailback and was a highly regarded recruit out of high school.

81 WR Shawney Kersey Penn State very much needs to find a complement to top wideout Justin Brown. Kersey has plenty of talent but consistency has very much been an issue. Senior Devon Smith would be a top option to stick in the starting lineup in the fall but a foot injury has kept him out of most of the spring and he will not see the field today. Another speedy option, sophomore Alex Kenney, is also expected to sit out with an ankle injury.

89 TE Garry Gilliam A potential starter in the fall, this will be the first look fans will get of Gilliam since he seriously injured his knee at Iowa in September 2010. With so much focus on the position in Bill O’Brien’s system, Gilliam and the other experienced scholarship tight end, Kevin Haplea, will be under the microscope in the early going.

65 OG Miles Dieffenbach Adam Gress has received the most praise this spring taking over at left tackle. Just as intriguing, however, is the sophomore who is set to line up next to him at left guard today in Dieffenbach. Playing center in his first two seasons on campus, Dieffenbach got his shot with the first team at guard with an injury to Mark Arcidiacono, who has been limited in the spring.

18 DE Deion Barnes Only a redshirt freshman, Barnes has impressed this spring. The opportunity has been there with Pete Massaro coming off of a serious knee injury and classmate Shawn Oakman being dismissed from the team. At 6-foot-4, Barnes has shown good burst off of the line and has earned praise from line coach Larry Johnson.

43 LB Mike Hull Mauti, Khairi Fortt and Jamie Van Fleet are all out with knee injuries of varying severity. That leaves the LB corps thinner than usual. Though undersized, Hull was rated as one of the top high school linebackers in the country. Heading into his redshirt sophomore season, he will get his first chance to make an impact and should see a good number of snaps today.

3 CB Curtis Drake The entire secondary will be in the spotlight as the Lions must replace four starters. Injuries too, have led to some walk-ons getting first-team reps this spring. After missing some time earlier this month, however, Drake appears ready to resume his work in switching over to defense. The junior will be battling with sophomore Adrian Amos, who also has been banged up, for a starting job.

Penn State AD no longer with school The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — The Penn State official who briefly took over as athletic director following the sex abuse scandal is no longer working at the school. The Centre Daily Times first reported Mark Sherburne’s departure Thursday night and said he was fired Wednesday. A university spokesman said Friday in an email to The Associated Press that Sherburne no longer works there. Penn State has not said that Sherburne was fired, and declined further comment citing a personnel issue. School President Rodney Erickson and Interim Athletic Director David Joyner each declined comment when asked about Sherburne at the ceremonial groundbreaking Friday for the university’s new ice hockey

Sherburne

arena, also citing a human resources issue. A message left Friday at a number listed for Sherburne was not immediately return-

ed. Sherburne was a senior athletics official who stepped in for 10 days to head the department after Tim Curley was placed on administrative leave in November in the aftermath of child sexual abuse charges against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Joyner assumed the acting post Nov. 16, with Sherburne returning to his position as associate athletic director. A State College native, Sherburne worked in athletics since 2000.

New hockey arena could benefit Penn State teams

The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — The groundbreaking ceremony for Penn State’s new ice hockey arena looked at times like a celebration for a sport other than hockey. Using shovels with hockey stick-shaped handles, a group of dignitaries dug into a sandbox filled with dirt set atop the green artificial turf of an outdoor field hockey playing surface on a sunny, breezy Friday morning. Work is already under way at the actual construction site — about 50 yards away — on the building that eventually will house the Penn State hockey programs being elevated to Division I status. “Welcome to Hockey Valley,” school President Rodney Erickson proclaimed Friday. He said the goal was to make the arena a

“national model by which all other programs are measured.” The school first announced in September 2010 that it was upgrading its club hockey teams to Division I, thanks in large part to an $88 million donation by Terry and Kim Pegula — the largest private gift in Penn State history. The money also was used to fund the ice arena, which will be named after the benefactor. Terry Pegula is the founder and former president of the energy company East Resources Inc., a major player in Pennsylvania’s burgeoning natural gas industry that was sold to Royal Dutch Shell PLC for $4.7 billion in 2010. Pegula, who also owns the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, increased his gift commitment to Penn State to $102 million to help cover additional construction costs.

SAO PAULO — A land dispute is threatening construction of the golf course for the 2016 Summer Games, when the sport is to be played at the Olympics for the first time since 1904. City officials might have to find a new site, meaning the project would start from scratch and possibly not be ready on time for test events in 2015. The city said in response to The Associated Press it just became aware of the situation Thursday and is “evaluating the measures it will take.” It was the first time the city officially recognized there could be an issue involving the land. It had been dismissing the prospect a legal dispute and downplaying problems affecting the course. A final decision on who owns the golf course land could take months or several years. There are ownership disputes throughout the posh Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, and few are resolved quickly. American designer Gil Hanse, who will build the course, told the AP on Thursday he had not yet been notified by city officials about the dispute. “If it was important, they would probably bring it up,” Hanse said by phone. “We’ve been selected to do that particular job and we feel comfortable with the time frame that we have.” Hanse said he was not worried, but acknowledged that any changes now could affect the project, which was based entirely on the land under dispute. “If they decided for whatever reason to make changes, you would have to start all over again,” he said. “Our design is specifically for that site. You can’t just put it someplace else.” The matter is in the hands of Brazil’s Higher Court of Justice. The lawyer from the company disputing the ownership, Elmway Participacoes, says that next week he will ask for the suspension of the city’s contracts with the other company that claimed to own the property before it came under the control of the city.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and legislative leaders met on Friday in an effort to get a bill passed for a new football stadium.

New venue gets approval Minnesota senate committee passed bill on Friday night to approve new stadium for the Vikings.

By BRIAN BAKST and JON KRAWCZYNSKI Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — A Minnesota Senate committee narrowly approved a public subsidy on Friday to help the Vikings build a new football stadium, reviving the team’s struggling effort just hours after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell visited the state Capitol to jumpstart what had been a stalled stadium debate. The Senate’s Local Government and Elections Committee passed the bill on an 8-6 vote after a hearing that stretched nearly four hours. While the stadium bill still faces a long haul in the waning days of Minnesota’s legislative session, the committee’s vote gave the $975 million stadium proposal new life four days after a companion bill’s defeat in a House committee sparked near panic among supporters. “We’re very pleased with the progress and that the bill moved forward,” Lester Bagley, the Vikings’ vice president for stadium development, said after the Senate committee vote. “It’s been an up and down week, touch and go.” The setback in the House had prompted the visit Friday by Goodell. He and Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II met Friday morning with Gov. Mark Dayton and legislative leaders to stress the urgency of resolving the Vikings’ decadelong pursuit of a replacement for the Metrodome. Though the Vikings will play next season in the dome, their lease there has expired. That has raised fears the franchise could get snatched by Los Angeles or another city seeking its own football team — a prospect Goodell did not exactly squelch. “They were here basically to say, ‘This is it folks,”’ Dayton said after the meeting. A simmering movement to put a franchise in Los Angeles came up in the discussion at the prompting of lawmakers, Dayton said. Sen. Julie Rosen, a Republican sponsoring the stadium bill, said legislative leaders heard that Los Angeles is an option, even if there was no explicit threat from the NFL. “There is no ultimatum, but we did clearly talk about LA. We did clearly talk about that is an open market,” Rosen said. “I do believe there is a feeling in some legislators and even in some folks throughout the state that

they would never leave. So it was good to hear from the NFL, and from a very prominent owner, that they do have the right to move or be sold.” Vikings officials, including owners Zygi and Mark Wilf, were not present at the meeting. Afterward, most who were in the room said the need to act is urgent. “There were no implied threats or any threats at all,” Goodell said. “What we talked about is the importance of creating a solution here that works for the team, that works for the community. This isn’t a new issue. It’s been discussed here for several years. I think the legislative leaders and the governor understand the time is now.” Dayton has pushed for a stadium deal for months, saying the state is at risk of losing the team just as it did the Lakers long ago. Moving the team is not permissible under league rules this year, but there’s always 2013. The Vikings have been contacted before by two separate groups trying to lure a team and build a stadium in Los Angeles but have said, for now, they’re not interested in selling. Under the bill approved by the Senate committee, the Vikings would pay $427 million of the construction costs for the new stadium, which would be built on the Metrodome site in downtown Minneapolis. City and state taxpayers would be on the hook for the other $548 million, or 56 percent of the total cost. Dayton said the state leaders didn’t ask league officials to enhance the private contribution in the financing package. He said the NFL delegation ran through a league loan program that could give the team access to up to $200 million, but it has long been believed franchise owners had figured that money into their calculations. The closeness of the Senate committee’s vote demonstrated concerns still held by a number of lawmakers, with some senators raising opposition to an expansion of gambling that’s part of the proposal’s funding package. Some also raised the larger issue of providing a public subsidy to benefit a wealthy football team owner. “I think some of us are just trying to represent the good wishes of many Minnesotans,” said Republican Sen. Roger Chamberlain, who voted against the bill. The Senate bill heads next to another committee of that chamber. Lawmakers are hoping to wrap up their session before the end of April.

By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — It’s turned into the joke that nobody can really laugh about, the cloud hanging over one of the most successful teams in the history of NASCAR. Thirteen races have passed since Hendrick Motorsports reached Victory Lane, the longest drought the team has experienced since the 2002-03 seasons. And the result is that Hendrick is still stuck on 199 victories, the milestone maddeningly just out of reach. “You know, now it’s turned. We’ve been so close to getting it the last month or so, it’s kind of a deal now where we’re joking, like, let’s not even think about it,” said five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, who claimed the team’s last victory in October at Kansas Speedway. The series is back this weekend for the first of two races this year. It should give the powerhouse team some positive vibes. Johnson also won from the pole at Kansas in 2008, and Jeff Gordon won the first two races at the track in 2001 and ’02. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has five top-10 finishes on the 11⁄2-mile oval and is currently third in points, while Kasey Kahne is coming off a Trucks series win

at Rockingham. No owner has more wins at Kansas Speedway than Hendrick. “We know our teams are all capable of winning races. We’ve all been there,” Johnson said Friday. “Whenever it happens, you’ll see a very big sigh of relief from Rick and the team.” It’s not as though Hendrick Motorsports hasn’t been competitive. To the contrary: It has been frustratingly close. Hendrick’s stable has finished second four times since Johnson’s victory during last season’s Chase, including his second-place run last Saturday night at Texas. Johnson led a race-high 156 laps, but a couple of subtle tweaks on his final two pit stops turned out for the worst. Greg Biffle passed him for the lead with 30 laps left, and the two-time winner at Kansas held on for his first Sprint Cup victory since October 2010. “When you lead the most laps and finish second, those stink,” Johnson said. “Last weekend I thought long and hard about the last two pit stops and the adjustments we made. We still had a fast race car, but those last two segments weren’t the strongest.” Johnson had another fast car a few weeks ago at Martinsville, and was lead-

ing late in the race. David Reutimann’s car stalled and brought out a caution, and then a wreck collected Johnson and Gordon, preventing them from making a run at the green-white-checkered finish. “We’re real happy with the way our cars perform come race time,” Johnson said. “Qualifying has been a bit of a struggle, though last weekend we had a top 10, which wasn’t too bad.” Johnson is confident that Hendrick Motorsports will finally get a win. This is a team, after all, that won five straight championships with Johnson, and had claimed five more before that between Gordon and Terry Labonte, who won the title in 1996. Johnson and Gordon combined for five wins last season, and Johnson won six alone in 2010. The last time the team went through such doldrums, Johnson was running his first full Cup schedule. The team went 15 straight races without a victory that time, a stretch that began — in a cruel coincidence — after Gordon won the 2002 race at Kansas Speedway. Then again, the very notion that folks are talking about 13 races being a drought says a lot about Hendrick Motorsports, where success is measured at a different level than most places.

THE TIMES LEADER

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Three sisters who own a Hazleton pizzeria filed a lawsuit in county court this week against a fourth sister, alleging she “hijacked” the company name and did not tell them of plans to open a new restaurant. Adriana Jones, of Alabama; Rosanna Ayers, of Hazleton, and Annuziata Gussen, of New Jersey, filed the lawsuit through their attorney, Walter Grabowski, on behalf of Vesuvio Restaurant and

Pizzeria, Inc., against their sister, Sofia Renaud and her company, Avanti of Drums, Inc. Renaud and her sons, Donald and James Sabatino, are shareholders in the Avanti business, according to court papers. Donald Sabatino told The Times Leader earlier this week that he had purchased Gonda’s restaurant on North Main Street and planned to rename it Vesuvio’s Ristorante. According to the complaint, the origi-

signed to mislead the public into believing that the Drums restaurant and Hazleton restaurant are under common ownership.” In the filing, the three sisters cite their belief that Renaud was planning to open a restaurant in Wilkes-Barre, a violation of her promise not to do so. The suit alleges several counts against Renaud and Avanti; breach of fiduciary duty, diversion of corporate opportunity and unfair competition, and asks for monetary and punitive damages.

Drums, using $200,000 in company funds to renovate and expand the new business without her sisters’ knowledge. Renaud, the suit says, used a trade name “virtually indistinguishable” from the original Vesuvio restaurant. The sisters reluctantly agreed to allow Renaud to use the name, in return for Renaud promising she would not open any other restaurants. The suit alleges Renaud “hijacked” the Vesuvio identity “through a course of wrongful and deceptive conduct de-

nal Vesuvio restaurant was opened in 1975 on North Wyoming Street in Hazleton by the sisters’ parents, Renato and Filippa Castagliola. After their father’s death in 2006, the sisters each owned 25 percent of the company. Renaud was the “de facto” president. She was removed as president and a director in March. In 2006, the suit says, Renaud and her husband, John Joseph Renaud, opened Vesuvio’s Pizzeria and Ristorante in

GE profit tops estimates General Electric’s first-quarter net income beat Wall Street expectations on a strong performance from the conglomerate’s industrial businesses. Earnings fell 12 percent to $3.03 billion, or 29 cents per share. But excluding charges, GE earned 34 cents in the quarter, a penny better than analysts’ estimates. Orders for locomotives, aircraft engines and other industrial equipment grew by double-digit rates.

IMF boosts loan pool

AP FILE PHOTO

The International Monetary Fund says it has raised more than $430 billion in an effort to assure finance markets that it has sufficient firepower to handle any new problems from Europe’s prolonged debt crisis. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde announced the new figure at the conclusion of talks among finance officials of the Group of 20 major economic powers on Friday. She said some countries including Russia, India, China and Brazil had made private pledges but did not want to issue public commitments until they had conferred with officials in their home capitals.

An American Airlines employee helps passengers check in at a ticketing counter at Dallas Fort-Worth Airport in Dallas.

U.S. Airways preps takeover

By MARY SCHLANGENSTEIN Bloomberg News

DALLAS — US Airways Group moved closer to making a takeover offer for AMR’s American Airlines in bankruptcy, saying it reached agreements on contract terms with the carrier’s major unions. US Airways said Friday no bid has been made, and it didn’t specify how it would proceed on a tie-up with American, which has said it wants to exit Chapter 11 as a standalone airline. The labor accords are contingent on reaching a deal with AMR, US Airways said today in a regulatory filing. Agreements with American’s three biggest labor groups would give US Airways some leverage in merger talks. The Allied

to evaluate AMR’s plan first, and then any offer from US Airways, said Kauffman. The unions’ support for US Airways doesn’t “in any way alter” AMR’s goal of restructuring in bankruptcy, Bruce Hicks, a spokesman, said in an e-mailed statement. The company is making “substantial progress.” A merged airline would be the largest in the world by passenger traffic, surpassing United Continental Holdings. American is the third-biggest in the U.S., while US Airways is No. 5. The company would keep the American name and Fort Worth headquarters, according to terms from US Airways in documents provided to the unions.

Pilots Association, Association of Professional Flight Attendants and Transport Workers Union each have seats on AMR’s nine-member unsecured creditors committee. “It’s a defensive move by the unions, and it’s an offensive move by US Airways to force their way to the table,” Jeff Kauffman, a Sterne Agee & Leach Inc. analyst in New York, said in an interview. With the unions on the creditors’ panel, “it’s smart of US Airways.” While AMR holds the sole right to file a reorganization plan through Sept. 28, the creditors committee can ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to end that privilege if the group concludes there is another viable option. The panel should be allowed

WASHINGTON — Two years after regulators gave Americans more power to manage overdrafts of their checking accounts, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is reviewing bank practices to determine if the crackdown went far enough. The agency, which will decide by the end of the year whether to write new rules, is scrutinizing nine banks including JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, PNC Financial Services Group and Bank of America, said four people briefed on the examination. The inquiry focuses on how financial institutions persuade customers to enroll in what they call overdraft protection programs. Examiners are looking at online and mailed marketing material as well as scripts used by the banks’ customer-service representatives to determine whether they could be confusing to consumers, said the people. Bureau examiners have conveyed “a tone of skepticism that this is really a good product for borrowers,” said Jo Ann Barefoot of Treliant Risk Advisors, who counsels banks on dealing with federal supervisors. While tighter rules could help U.S. consumers, they also could threaten a major revenue stream for banks. About 15 million Americans overdraw their accounts 10 or more times a year, the firm said. The bureau’s examiners also are reviewing the banks’ justifications for the size of overdraft fees, two of the people said. NATURAL GAS $1.93

We should see a little sun this morning before thicker clouds move in this afternoon with showers. The wind will shift around to the north later today and there may be a light rainfall here tonight behind a cold front. A north wind will continue through Sunday and as a storm develops along the coast, an area of steady rain will spread northward up into eastern Pennsylvania Sunday evening. The proximity of the storm into Monday will keep skies cloudy with more rain and chilly temperatures. Currently, our rainfall this spring is 3" to 5" below normal. - Tom Clark

ive-year-old Charles Seiger hasn’t left his room in days. He perches atop his bunk bed, nestled among sheets that depict Disney Pixar’s hit movie “Cars” and watches the movie of the same name. “He’s been doing this for nearly three days straight,” hisfatherCharles,30,said. “He used to have to sleep on the couch with us because he didn’t want to be alone,” his mother Jen, 29, said, “and now he actually asks to go to bed.” It’sastunningdifferencefroma mere two weeks ago, a time before Leadership Wilkes-Barre’s “Special Spaces” team came into the Warrior Run home and remodeled the little boy’s bedroom as part of a project whose objective is to provide dream bedrooms for children with disabilities and/or lifethreatening illnesses. “Our aim is to provide a place for the child that is their own and also meets their needs,” Michelle Morgan, a Leadership team member who works at Pepperjam said. Charles has Down syndrome andHershberger’sdiseaseaswell as some other minor health complications. The two big requests his parents had for his new room were to get rid of the carpet – his old onewasaggravatinghisasthma–and to provide an organized space. “Organization is a big thing with him because everything has to be taught to him,” Jensaid.“Wewanteditdoneinawaythatwas simple, so that he could figure it out himself. Our goal, since he was born, has always been to have him be independent someday.” Charles’ bed is a bunk bed with several compartments built in. He also has a corner desk with two areas that provide drawers, a separate dresser with drawers and a closet with compartments built into the wall. “The closet was also a big thing because at one point the door just wouldn’t close, but now it fully does,” Seiger said. To help with Charles’ asthma the team

Charles, Leo, Jen and Charles Seiger of Warrior Run are grateful for little Charles’ newly renovated room, sporting a ‘Cars’ theme.

“He used to have to sleep on the couch with us because he didn’t want to be alone and now he actually asks to go to bed.” Jen Seiger, mother of 5-year-old Charles Seiger

purchased from Wal-Mart, which took about five hours to complete. “We had two engineers on the team that was putting it together, and it still took that long,” Morgan said with a laugh. “It’s worth it, though, because it’s what everyone complimentsonmostwhentheysee the room.” It also serves not only as place to sleep and keep clothes for Charles but has numerous hiding spots that he and his brother, Leo, 3, play in. “There’s a pull-out desk to one section,butwejusthadtotakeitoutcompletely,” Jen said. “Instead he crawls into there with his big car pillow.” The “Cars” characters are all over the room. The Special Spaces team used some “Cars” décor the Seigers already had and mixed it with new items. A large “Cars” play mat is on the floor, the characters are all over thewalls,andthere’sevenatinytable and chair set that looks like a stack of tires in one corner. The room, which was originally light blue, was repainted with a twotone look of light and dark blue sep-

Drywall wasdonatedandinstalledbySpencer Construction in Pittston, and the Leadership team was assisted by Vito Ginocchietti of West Side Painting in Scranton. There’s also a swiveling wall-mounted TV so Charles can watch his favorite show from anywhere in the room. The biggest project was the bed, See SPACES, Page 2C

Ceramics grab spring spotlight By KIM COOK For The Associated Press

Ceramics are always a great supporting player on the homedécor stage, but this season they’re grabbing more of the spotlight. Today’s ceramists are exploring creative textures and finishes, and even the mass market is offering exciting new examples of the pottery arts. From velvety soft, lacy tealight holders to chunky, colorful platters,

there’s something for everyone. You can choose to feature pottery prominently or enlist it as punctuation to other colors and textures in your room. A piece with lots of pattern punch can be a conversation starter, whether it was created half a world away by a village artisan or right in your own hometown. Ceramics also can help tie a space together, picking up elements — a knitted motif or a

color, say — that appear in artwork, throw pillows or rugs elsewhere in the room. And ceramics are easy to change out when you tire of them. Homegoods often has cool ceramics that resemble higherend versions. This spring,

you’ll find a Provence-style, rustic, mustard-hued lamp base with a honeycomb embossment, an array of chic bird-patterned See CERAMICS, Page 6C AP PHOTO

If you blink, you might miss the turn. A quick left off North Main Street onto Courtright Street in Plains Township takes you into the area of River Ridge, an upscale townhouse development nestled across two main roads. “It’slikealittlevillagehere,”saidBarbara Davis, 60, who has been a resident for eight years with her husband, Bob, 59. All the townhomes are beige but sport a variety of shutters and sit in rows, with two streets, Hollywood Avenue and Burke Street/ Dale Drive, winding between them.

Township. As attractive as River Ridge is on the outside, the people inside the well-maintained properties give it its real beauty. “Everyone here is absolutely wonderful,” Davis said. “We’re always there to help one another out, yet we don’t interfere in each other’s lives. It’s a good balance.” Davis said the age range is a mixed bag. Kay Giovagnoli has lived here just two years but has long felt welcome. “I’ve never met someone here that isn’t incredibly sweet,” she said. “The whole atmosphere of this neighborhood is remarkable.” While many neighborhoods might see a decrease in the activity between neighbors due to busy lifestyles, Davis said that’s not true of River Ridge. “We don’t just sit around in our houses,” she said. “We’re all out and about, especially when the weather gets warmer.” Thewarmerweatheralsobringswithita stunning view for residents coming and going. Lining the drive into River Ridge are several cherry blossom trees that, when in bloom, provide a pretty pink archway over drivers. “You pull in and you’d think you’re going to paradise,” Davis said. A paradise it is for residents, who Davis said will get together for parties sometimes. “About two years ago we had a big block party in our yards where everybody brought something, and it was just wonderful.” Davis has always had her eye on River Ridge, which is far enough up from River Street to have been safe from flooding. “I told my husband for years and years that someday we would live in this place, and I’m just glad we were able to make that come true.”

IN BRIEF What’s new The Shower ClearMirror gives users a better view for shaving or removing makeup in the shower. The mirror, designed for permanent installation, has a thin heating pad behind it that warms it to 102 degrees to eliminate condensation and keep it fog-free. It connects to a lowvoltage electrical system for safe operation. The mirror is available in three standard sizes as well as custom sizes and shapes. The heating pad and transformer also can be ordered without the mirror to accommodate custom installations. The Shower ClearMirror is made by NewHome Bath and Mirror and can be ordered at www.ClearMirror.com at prices

starting at $325. It’s also available at some bath and plumbing showrooms. Q&A Q: My dining room is used as a sewing room. I would like to hide the clutter, which can be seen from the living room. The entrance is 81 inches high by 42 inches wide. I would like an easy pass-through that allows some privacy. A folding door was a nuisance. Please give me some advice. A: Bath Township, Ohio, interior designer Christine Haught and I put our heads together and brainstormed these ideas: • Hang a beautiful curtain in the entryway, perhaps from a tension rod. Pull the curtain aside with a tieback or holdback when it’s not in use. • If you have the wall space on either side of the opening,

hang a sliding door (or two narrow doors) from a wallmounted track, sort of like a barn door. • Buy or make a decorative folding screen to cover the opening to the room or just shield a corner where you stash your work in progress. • Buy or make a rolling room

arated by a “Cars” border. The entire project, from the planning process, took about 30 hours to complete. The Leadership WilkesBarre team also consisted of Semi Ghebrezadik and Jose Leos of Procter & Gamble, Diana Johnson and Patti Potomis of Sallie Mae, Luke Matthews of Gavlick, Melissa Nikoden of CVS Caremark, Brian Stahl of Hourigan, Kluger& Quinn P.C., Melissa Szafran of the Hoyt Library, and Casey Monagan of Quad3. All these people, as well as donationsfromlocalbusinessesandmoney raised during a wine-and-cheese art auction at the Hoyt Library in February, made it possible for Charles to have the space of his own. “Before this he had my 29-yearold furniture,” Jen said. “It was big and took up a lot of space.” “There was nothing in here that was his,” Seiger said, “but now everything is for him. This is something we’ll always be grateful for.”

divider, which might be easier to move into place than a screen. Most are made for institutional settings such as offices and schools, but you could borrow the idea by adding casters to some sort of decorative panel — maybe a bamboo screen or a couple of antique

doors fastened together side by side. • Play up your sewing space instead of hiding it, much like an artist’s atelier. Even when your work is spread out, it won’t look out of place, Haught said. Add storage containers that are good-looking as well as func-

plates in fine china, and several color-saturated glazed vessels in deep teal or cranberry. Scandinavian design studio Ferm Living created an ethereal new collection for spring that includes matte white or terra cotta ceramic vases made of stacked spheres and polygons. A series of porcelain pieces, including a teapot and bowl, sports a spear geometric in subtle organic tones of charcoal, pale pink, seafoam and curry. Susan Dwyer, a sculpture major at art school in Chicago, was inspired by the clean, minimal lines of the city’s industrial landscape to create a cool series of vessels evoking factory buildings, water towers and silos. All hand-formed, the pieces have a unique organic look that is at odds with, yet complementary to, the manufactured structure it represents. Amy Adams, the brains behind Brooklyn-based Perch studio, has designed a clever series of stacking cups with sten-

ciled rosettes, flowers, garlands or triangles. Available in black and white or turquoise and white, these have a nice folk-arty look and would be versatile little repositories for drinks, flowers or trinkets. One of the masters of ceram-

tery pieces for which he threw the prototype and Peruvian artisans created the finished product. Motifs include leaves, seed pods and barnacles. In a new collaboration with South African artisans, West Elm has Maria Moyer’s pretty pierced tealight holders and stunning white orbed vases, which look like they were born in some far-off galaxy. John Newdigate’s fun blue-andwhite-fish painted platters and fish-shaped serveware have a

Japanese vibe. Boston artist Leah Piepgras may have created the ultimate ceramic conversation piece, however. At the New York fair, her Consumption series of porcelain plates was shown at the Model Citizens booth. For a limited edition produced by Pickard China, Piepgras uses anatomical illustrations to draw each stage of the digestive tract from mouth (the tea cup) to, well, the end of the line for food we eat (the dessert

plate). A result of her keen interest in the body and brain, her “map,” Piepgras says, is “a reminder of the processes that are taking place within you while you’re eating, promoting an exercise in mindfulness.” Rendered in a blue-black palette that’s less realistic than flesh tones, the plates are beautifully odd. At $750 a set, this would perhaps be better suited to display than dinner.

Woman ready to say so long to couple after unwelcome kiss goodbye Dear Abby: A friend’s husband gave me a ride to the airport, and when I went to hug him goodbye, he grabbed me by the arms and kissed me on the lips several times. I wasn’t expecting it, and I certainly hadn’t invited it. I made light of it, but it made me very uncomfortable and I don’t want to see him again. I don’t know how to end my friendship with his wife. I would never tell her, and I do not wish to have this standing between us, so I’d rather just end the friendship. How should I handle this? She occasionally contacts me for lunch dates. — Dismayed in Manhattan

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Dismayed: You’re lucky the wife contacts you for lunch dates only occasionally. It means she’s a casual friend, which will make disengaging easier. When she calls, all you need to do is tell her you have other plans. Dear Abby: I have been seeing “Larry” for six months, and from day one we both agreed that we do not want to be in a relationship. I’m 29 and he’s 34. But over time we have developed feelings for each other. Larry is recently divorced after 10 years of marriage. He tells me he doesn’t want

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

to lose me, but it’s hard for him to commit for fear of being hurt. Larry talks to other women and goes out, while I have basically committed myself to him. He gets upset if I talk to another man. He says I’m his best friend and he’s afraid a relationship would change that. I don’t know what to do anymore. Neither one of us would be OK if the other started dating, but I’m sick of waiting for him to make up his mind. Should I move on? — In Limbo in Columbus, Ind. Dear In Limbo: Yes, you should. But not before telling Larry exactly why, because the arrangement you have is unfair to you. If you don’t, you and Larry could wind up being “best friends” forever and nothing more.

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Abby: When my wife and I renewed our wedding vows after 25 years of marriage, I gave her a beautiful diamond band to thank her for our years together. I lost her 20 years later and put the ring aside, not knowing what to do with it. My son had been living with a lovely girl for a couple of years. They appeared to be a perfect match, so I gave him the ring and suggested he give it to her and propose. I looked forward to their happiness and perhaps some grandchildren. My son presented it to her, she accepted and they were married. Sadly, after three years she divorced him and they have gone their separate ways. Should I contact her and ask for the return of the ring? I wanted the ring to stay in the family, and she has

opted out of our family. Please advise. — Not Sure in New Jersey Dear Not Sure: By all means contact your former daughter-in-law and ask if she’s willing to part with the ring. She may agree to give it to you or sell it to you if she still has it. However, if there has been animosity since the divorce, she may not feel inclined to be gracious — so be prepared. Once your son gave the ring to her, it became her property to do with as she wished. 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). The one you didn’t appreciate will now get a little more of your attention. What could have been? That can be a painful question or an inspiring one, depending on your attitude. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a position to protect others from the harshness of the world, to shield loved ones from rejection or soften the hard edges of reality. You’ll succeed in this matter. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What happens to you is always far less important than what you take from the experience. Extrapolating meaning from your life is a highly personal choice. It means what you think it means, so think something good! CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a lot of good that can be said of being on autopilot. The problem with it arises when you want to go somewhere other than where you’re programmed to go. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Success won’t happen overnight, but it will happen over night after night after night. A month of nights will bring you to a place you can be proud of. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Does it seem that things are getting simultaneously better and worse? Nothing can stay the same. You’ll be able to turn things in your favor, though. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). However you feel, it’s an acceptable feeling. Furthermore, you won’t be able to move through the feelings until you first accept them for what they are. Your emotional intelligence will expand.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a process for decision-making. First you feel things through; then you think them through. Take it one step further, and visualize your way through. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your method for measuring value differs from that of the others you’ll be dealing with today. Try to see things the way they do. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with them, but you’ll deal more effectively. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you’d prefer to be eventempered and experience a stable level of feeling throughout the day, there will be passionate fluctuations you just can’t avoid. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t have to put a positive spin on everything that unfolds. You choose to do so because you know it will allow you to see more options and to be pleasant company, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Heated exchanges are on the menu. You don’t want to dish it out, and you don’t want to get served. And yet you may still find yourself in the middle of the argument. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 21). Your professional and personal lives intersect in interesting ways and will at times merge to increase your luck on both fronts. The next 10 weeks bring intense focus. Set concrete goals. You’ll travel to be with loved ones in June and July and will find adventure in your own town, too. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 3, 13, 39 and 16.

Fiat Abarth is irresistible seat is best reserved for short trips and shorter people. There’s a useful 9.5 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats; 26.8 cubic feet with them folded flat.

MARK PHELAN WHEELS There’s plenty to criticize about the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth, but the little Italian runabout is irresistible. The Abarth would be a guilty pleasure, if it weren’t so hard to feel guilty about a sporty car with EPA ratings of 34 mpg on the highway, 28 in the city and 31 in combined driving. Abarth — pronounced "Ah-barth" — is Fiat’s performance-tuning brand. It was founded by Carlo Abarth, who specialized in turning inexpensive little Fiats into hotshot road racers. The 500 is the first model to bear the enamel scorpion Abarth badge in the U.S. It adds power and an air of menace to the already delightful Fiat 500. The main drawback is that the $26,200 Abarth I tested cost more than bigger, more powerful sporty cars like the Honda Civic Si and VW GTI. "But I’d never drive those cars. I’d drive this," my friend Cathy, a stylish woman with exquisite taste in cars and clothes, announced after a giggle-inducing spin in the Abarth.

The Abarth has a chunky, flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel and more black leather wrapping the shifter and the cowl over the gauges. Attractive leather bucket seats are optional. The car had a good Bose stereo and Fiat’s fine Blue & Me voice-recognition for phone calls and audio. The Abarth could use more interior storage spaces. The glove box is useful, but the cupholders are inconveniently placed on the floor, and there’s no good place for sunglasses and other gear. Those shortcomings would be a problem in a car that was boring to look at and drive. They’re an afterthought to the sheer pleasure of walking up to a Fiat 500 Abarth and hearing its powerful little engine spring to life.

]The car business is the fashion business. Automakers forget that at their peril. The 500 Abarth is tres chic, tres quick. That’s its edge vs. more practical competitors. Prices for the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth start at $22,000. All Abarths have a five-speed manual transmission and turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 160 horsepower. I tested a nicely equipped Abarth with a power sunroof, leather seats; 17-inch aluminum wheels and a removable TomTom navigation unit. It stickered at $26,200. All prices exclude destination charges.

500 Abarth competes with compacts and subcompacts like the Ford Fiesta hatchback, turbocharged Chevrolet Sonic and Mini Cooper S.

turns quickly and holds them well. Its relatively tall height and narrow track lead to more body roll than lower, wider cars like the Mini Cooper S.

In addition to 58 percent more horsepower and 73 percent more torque from the base 500’s naturally aspirated 1.4-liter engine, the Abarth has revised gear ratios and rear suspension, new front shocks, lowered ride height and wider tires.

The Abarth darts through traffic, nipping in and out of small gaps thanks to its responsive handling and torquey, free-revving engine.

The car I tested had excellent grip. The ride got a little choppy over closely spaced bumps, but that’s not unusual in cars with short wheelbases like the 500’s 90.6 inches. The electric power steering is fast and responsive. The Abarth heads into

In addition to the Civic Si and GTI, the

The 1.4-liter turbo has the sweetest note I’ve ever heard in a small engine, with an appealing back-pressure burble when you back off the throttle. The engine’s 170 pound-feet of torque available from 2,500 to 4,000 rpm provides plenty of muscle. The Abarth’s EPA rating of 31 mpg in combined city and highway driving tops sporty competitors like the GTI, Civic Si and

Cooper S. It approaches the 33 mpg rating of mainstream subcompacts like the Sonic, Fiesta and Hyundai Accent. The transmission has short, precise throws and a light clutch. A six-speed manual would make the Abarth even more appealing by improving fuel economy and acceleration. Wind and road noise are noticeable. The black Abarth I tested included a rear spoiler, red caps on its side mirrors, red side stripes and Abarth’s scorpion badges. Lightning bolts in Italian tricolor — red, white and green — next to some of the badges struck me as overkill. The interior offers plenty of front-seat head, leg and shoulder space. The back
