Hearing set for Ciavarella pension


Former Luzerne County judge challenged agency’s decision to deny his retirement.


County bans bath salts transactions Conviction carries jail term of up to two years, a fine of $5,000, and civil penalties.


After a nearly two-year delay, the State Employees’ Retirement System has scheduled a hearing for June 2 to address former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella’s challenge of the decision to deny him his pension. The hearing, to be heard by a hearing examiner, will address the agency’s June 2009 decision to deny Ciavarella his pension, as well as a separate claim for $4.3 million that the state DepartCiavarella ment of Public Welfare filed against contributions Ciavarella made to the fund. Officials with SERS originally determined Ciavarella and former Judge Michael Conahan were not entitled to their pensions based on their guilty pleas in February 2009 to honest services fraud and tax evasion charges relating to their alleged scheme to incarcerate juveniles for profit. Since then, the criminal cases against both men have changed dramatically. Both men withdrew the guilty pleas in July 2009 after a judge rejected the terms of the deals. Ciavarella went to trial and was convicted this February of 12 counts, including honest services wire fraud, money laundering and tax evasion.

She noted a West Pittston couple hallucinating on bath salts endangered a young child when they used knives to stab walls believing there were 90 people living in the walls. “Anyone who sells bath salts in Luzerne County can be charged with reckless endangering or a public nuisance and also face civil penalties as well,” Musto Carroll said.

WILKES-BARRE – It is now illegal for anyone to sell, trade, or exchange synthetic bath salts in Luzerne County. County President Judge Thomas F. Burke Jr. on Monday granted a permanent injunction banning the transaction of bath salts containing certain chemicals. Burke quickly issued his ruling minutes after listening to testimony from two medical experts, District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll and Wilkes-Barre Police Chief Gerard Dessoye, about the synthetic substance.

WILKES-BARRE – Law enforcement initially thought they were seeing more mental health cases of people experiencing hallucinations and paranoia, Wilkes-Barre Police Chief Gerard Dessoye said Monday. It was only after police became knowledgeable that they realized the bizarre behavior that was becoming increasingly common was due to bath salts being used as a legal substitute to illegal drugs, Dessoye said. Dessoye, whose law enforcement career has spanned 38 years, was one of four witnesses to testify during a hearing before Luzerne County President Judge Thomas F. Burke Jr. for an injunction to ban the sale of bath salts. Dessoye testified at length about his meeting with two women charged by city police on March 28 with being high on bath salts while driving in a car

with two children. “We were becoming aware of the problems with bath salts,” Dessoye said. Dessoye “In my experience, in my 18 years working with narcotics, I’ve never saw anyone as high as this girl. Never, never saw anything like it. I was shocked, and I’m at the stage in my career where I’m not shocked very easily.” Arrest records identified the two women as Michele M. Pace, 39, and Donna Zilla, 40, both of Lackawanna County. Dessoye said the two women were driving around Luzerne County looking for a new source to buy bath salts because their Lackawanna County source stopped selling the synthetic substance.

Bambera still pushing for input from faithful regarding future of diocese

Bishop stayed accessible in 1st year By MARK GUYDISH

SCRANTON – He came in amid the rubble of a faith wracked by church and school closings, with a promise to rebuild. He followed the tumultuous tenure of a reclusive leader by repeatedly stepping out to meet the public. Strident accusations from an outside advocacy group alleging priest scandal cover-ups bookend his first 365 days in office. One year after his installation as leader of the 11-county Diocese of Scranton, Bishop Joseph Bambera seems undaunted as he maintains a schedule of frequent public ap-

pearances and a campaign seeking input from the faithful in deciding where the diocese goes next. “I’ve heard many of you – before offering any other thoughts – share a sadness that comes from loss,” Bambera Bambera told a crowd during the “Chrism Mass” – at which oils are blessed for use in religious rites – at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Scranton April 21. “Personal losses due to death or sickness, but also losses that come from the closing of church buildings and parishes that mean so

much to us and schools where we and our children grew in wisdom, knowledge and faith,” he said. “Closings” defined Bambera’s predecessor, Bishop Joseph Martino, a Philadelphia transplant who took office in 2003 as the diocese was in the throes of tectonic shifts in demographics.

Barbour bows out of 2012 presidential race No less than a dozen potential GOP contenders are poised to take on President Obama.


JACKSON, Miss. — Republican Gov. Haley Barbour bowed out of presidential contention Monday with a surprise announcement just as the 2012 campaign was getting under way in earnest, 18 months before Election Day. The Mississippi governor said he lacked the necessary "absolute fire in the belly" to run. Barbour’s declaration, unexpected because he had been laying the groundwork for a campaign for months, thins a Republican cluster of no less than a dozen potential candidates to take on Democratic President Barack Obama. With the GOP campaign’s first debate scheduled for next week,

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Keith Rucker, 40, of South Main Street, Hanover Township, will be charged with assault after Gregory Thompson, of South Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, reported on Monday that Rucker struck him in the face with an unknown object at South Pennsylvania Avenue and Hazle Street, police said. Thompson was treated at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. • Mark Linker, of North Meade Lane, reported on Monday night that someone removed Pennsylvania registration plate HRN9149 from his 1996 Mercury while it was parked near 46 Meade St.

the muddy Republican field will become clearer very soon as more potential contenders announce whether they’ll run or sit out. Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who lost in 2008 and is a favorite of libertarians as well as tea partyers, is planning to take a step toward a second bid today. The next facing a self-imposed deadline of this weekend, is Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Barbour friend and a fiscal conservative who has shined a spotlight on rising budget deficits and national debt. “All eyes will be on Daniels. ... It’s a clear path for him if he wants to run,” said Doug Gross, an Iowa Republican who dined with Barbour last month and left questioning whether the governor had the hunger to get in the race. It turns out he didn’t. "I will not be a candidate for president next year," the twoterm governor said a statement, adding that he wasn’t ready for a "10-year commitment to an allconsuming effort." • Megan Seeman, of Airy Street, Wilkes-Barre, reported on Monday that someone she knows verbally harassed her at 40 Airy St., but she did not wish to press charges. • Dorothy Jesso, of Meadow Crest Apartments, Trucksville, reported that a male suspect forcefully removed cash from her hand and fled while she was walking at West Market and North Franklin streets Monday afternoon. An investigation continues. • It was reported on Monday afternoon that someone stole a 2010 Ford Focus sedan owned by Enterprise Rent-A-Car at Motorworld Drive in Plains Township and bearing Maryland registration plate 3FYE13 from 613 Mayflower Crossing. • It was reported on Monday morning that someone stole cash and a can of soda from

ment, rising gas prices and the remnants of recession. Yet, the GOP faces plenty of its own troubles. Its field lacks a front-runner. Most of the candidates are largely unknown to Republicans. The most recent Associated PressGfK poll indicated that only half of all Republicans were satisfied by their choices and a third were dissatisfied. Unlike four years ago, GOP presidential hopefuls have been hesitant to rush into the race. Many have been mindful of the long slog and huge costs of a campaign. Several also have been waiting to see what the first half of the year would bring, when the focus would be on the new House GOP majority and its tangles with the Democratic administration. So far, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who lost the nomination in 2008, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who was on John McCain’s vice presidential short list, have set up presidential exploratory committees allowing them raise money for full-fledged campaigns. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is expected to make his campaign official as early as next week. A cluster of lesser-knowns also have inched toward the race, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.

The ordinance also states that no more than two political signs are allowed on private properties and the signs cannot be larger than six square feet. The signs, which have been removed by township officials, can be picked up at the police department. At last month’s meeting, a resident asked the supervisors if the township has an ordinance that prohibits demonstrations or protests at military funerals. Solicitor Peter Savage said the state prohibits any kind of protests or demonstrations less than 500 feet from a church, cemetery or anywhere that a funeral service is held for civilians or the military. Federal regulations set the boundaries up to 300 feet for military, with no boundary restrictions for civilians. In other business, supervisor Ray Iwanoski announced that the Back Mountain Community Partnership recently won the award of “Excellence in Township Planning” from the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.

Jobless rate falls to 8.7%


couple who sued Wilkes-Barre over the sale of the former Old A River Road Bakery have appealed a

federal judge’s dismissal of the suit. Cynthia Pollick, attorney for Tyler and Antonia Hammond, on Monday filed a notice indicating she has appealed the case to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The Hammonds filed the suit in 2009 against the city, Mayor Tom Leighton and city attorney William Vinsko, Leighton alleging they conspired to remove the defunct bakery from a tax sale to pave the way for the sale to a person who was a private client of Leighton’s real estate business and Vinsko’s law firm. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo dismissed the suit in its entirety in March, saying the Hammonds’ claims did not constitute a legally recognizable claim under federal law. Caputo last week altered his order, giving the Hammonds the opportunity to seek to file an amended complaint. No new complaint had been filed as of late Monday afternoon. The notice of appeal to the Third Circuit does not provide details of the basis of the appeal.

The figures in the report show the metro area’s seasonally adjusted labor force decreased by 800 workers to 279,700. But the seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs rose 300 to 254,200. Over the year, seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs in the statistical area were up by 1,900. The hardest-hit sector in March locally was manufacturing, which dropped 800 jobs over the month. This was the largest monthly drop in more than two years. News was much better in other sectors. Professional and business services rose by 800 jobs. This was the largest March increase since the data began being tracked by supersectors in 1990. This supersector includes tax preparation, landscaping, and other industries which typically show seasonal increases beginning in March. Liuzzo said the loss of 800 manufacturing jobs and the gain of 800 professional jobs is no anomaly. He said the trend has been ongoing for several years as a loss of

W-B firehouse activist’s rep seeks legal fees from city Attorney wants $240K in compensation in Carey’s successful suit vs. the city. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

SCRANTON – The attorney for city firehouse activist Denise Carey has filed court papers seeking more than $240,000 in legal fees and other costs associated with Carey’s successful suit against Wilkes-

Barre City. Attorney Cynthia Pollick of Pittston filed a legal brief Monday supporting her Carey request for compensation in connection with Carey’s six-year battle with the city. A federal jury awarded Carey, of Wilkes-Barre, $67,000 in compensatory and punitive

damages following a trial in November 2008 for violations of her First Amendment right to free speech. The panel determined Mayor Tom Leighton retaliated against Carey by seeking $11,000 in attorneys fees the city incurred in fighting a petition Carey circulated that opposed the closure of a fire station in the Heights section of the city. The jury rejected her claim for damages for defamation, however. The city appealed the ruling

to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld the verdict in February. Under federal law, attorneys who represent plaintiffs in civil rights cases can seek compensation for each hour they worked on the case. The fees are in addition to any monetary award to the plaintiff. In Carey’s case, Pollick initially sought $222,821 in attorney fees and costs following the trial based on a rate of $300 per hour. Those fees and costs increased

by $17,492 for hours spent fighting the city’s appeal, for a total of $240,313, Pollick says in court records. Attorneys for the city filed court documents in opposition to the fee request, arguing the hourly rate is excessive. They also contend the fees should be reduced because Carey did not prevail on each count of the suit. U.S. District Judge Sylvia Rambo will review the court filings and issue a ruling at a later date.

The circus-goers milled into the armory and sat in the bleachers that had been set up around the center ring and waited for the 1:30 p.m. show to begin. The children were excited to see the animals. But not everybody was pleased with the thought of animals entertaining people. A group of high school girls stood on the sidewalk in front of the armory, holding signs and shouting their

Postponement sought

An attorney for a former Shenandoah police chief convicted of filing a false report in connection with the beating death of an illegal immigrant is seeking to postpone a separate federal trial he faces for allegedly extorting operators of an illegal gambling ring. Attorney James West on Monday asked that the trial for Matthew Nestor be continued until a court rules on Nestor’s appeal of his conviction in the Luis Ramirez case. Nestor was found guilty in January of submitting a false police report relating to the investigation into the death of Ramirez, who was beaten to death by several teenagers in 2008. Nestor’s trial on charges that he and a fellow officer forced operators of a gambling ring to pay Nestor them in exchange for allowing the ring to continue operating is set for May 10. West says he believes prosecutors intend to present the verdict in the Ramirez case as evidence in the gambling case in order to impeach Nestor’s credibility, so the gambling trial should be continued until after Nestor’s appeal is resolved. Alternatively, West seeks to bar prosecutors from presenting the evidence. WILKES-BARRE

For sixth consecutive month, regional figure drops, but area still has highest rate in state.

In March, for the first time since June 2009, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre metropolitan statistic area was at 8.7 percent. While still the highest rate of the state’s 14 metro areas, it marks a full one percentage point dip since March 2010. The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for the tri-county region that includes Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wyoming dipped four-tenths of one percentage point. The improvement marked the sixth consecutive month-to-month decline. Anthony Liuzzo, director of the master of business administration program at Wilkes University, said the data show “we’re moving in the right direction. No doubt about that.” But the professor also said work needs to be done and the data give no reason to celebrate. “It’s certainly nothing to cheer about,” he said. “This is still a high rate of unemployment.” The rate was nearly a full percentage point higher than the state’s 7.8 percent rate but lower than the national rate of 8.8 percent. The data, which will be made public today by the Department of Labor and Industry’s Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, showed that 13 of the state’s 14 metro areas saw unemployment rate declines in March. The only one that didn’t was the area with the lowest rate, State College. Its rate of 5.3 percent remained unchanged from February.

WILKES-BARRE – A Mountain Top man who pleaded guilty last week to fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend in 2009 has asked a judge to allow him to withdraw his plea to a third-degree murder charge. Robert George Zola, 46, of Patriot Circle, and of Nottingham Street, Plymouth, said in a hand-written request filed Monday that he is “rescinding, removing, withdrawing, canceling, pulling back,” his plea in the stabbing death of 35-year-old Rosemarie Cave. Zola said in the court papers that he was not given appropriate court papers by his attorneys and that his attorneys did not show him a guilty plea agreement until 15 minutes prior to proceedings last week. Luzerne County Judge Joseph Cosgrove scheduled a hearing for this morning. WILKES-BARRE – A Hazleton woman pleaded guilty recently to 16 charges, including burglary and simple assault. Tammy L. Leitzel, 30, of Garfield Street, entered the plea to the charges stemming from eight separate cases. Luzerne County Judge David Lupas said Leitzel will be sentenced on June 29. In one of the cases, charges of robbery were withdrawn due to the death of the victim in the case. In November 2009, Leitzel was charged with entering a Poplar Street home and removing a purse, while in another case, police said in May 2010, Leitzel and a man assaulted another man in his Hazle Township home. Leitzel pleaded guilty to the following charges: simple assault, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, access device fraud, receiving stolen property, theft, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary, trespassing, possessing an instrument of crime, and charges relating to driving under the influence. WILKES-BARRE – A city man was sentenced Monday to three to six years in state prison on several drug-related charges. Charles Jackson, 43, of Hancock Street, pleaded guilty to two counts of delivery of cocaine and one count of delivery of heroin and was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley. The three cases were prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Rebecca Reimiller and Jill Matthews Lada. Jackson was represented by attorneys Joseph Sklarosky Jr., and Allyson Kacmarski.

Obama egg-static at White House roll

President Barack Obama cheers on children rolling Easter eggs at the White House Easter Egg Roll, Monday in Washington. Thousands of kids and their parents swarmed the White House grounds Monday for the annual tradition of rolling Easter eggs across the South Lawn, complete with games, storytelling and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — During the long Afghan winter, Taliban insurgents were apparently busy underground. The militants say they spent more than five months building a 1,050-foot tunnel to the main prison in southern Afghanistan, bypassing government checkpoints, watch towers and concrete barriers topped with razor wire. The diggers finally poked through Sunday and spent 4 1/2 hours ferrying away more than 480 inmates without a shot being

fired, according to the Taliban and Afghan officials. Most of the prisoners were Taliban militants. Accounts of the extraordinary prison break, carried out in the dead of night, suggest collusion with prison guards, officials or both. Following a recent wave of assassinations here, the breakout underscores the weakness of the Afghan government in the south despite an influx of international troops, funding and advisers. It also highlights the spirit and resourcefulness of the Taliban despite months of battlefield setbacks. Officials at Sarposa prison in Kandahar city, the one-time Taliban capital, say they discovered the breach at about 4 a.m. Monday, a half-hour after the Taliban saytheyhadgottenalltheprisoners safely to a house at the other

Italy to participate in raids

remier Silvio Berlusconi says Italy will take part in strategic bombing P raids over Libya.

Berlusconi’s office issued a statement late Monday, after the premier spoke with U.S. President Barack Obama, saying Italy had decided to beef up its military action to better contribute to protecting civilians. Italy had previously said it wouldn’t take part in air strikes against Libyan targets, given its 40-year colonial rule over the country. Italian aircraft and navy ships have, however, been involved in refueling and other operations for NATO forces. The statement stressed that Italian airstrikes would only be for “specific military objectives.”

Soldiers look for remains

A line of somber soldiers walked methodically through a drained swamp Monday, with each step sinking their slender poles into the muck beneath. If one hit a body, he would know. “Bodies feel very distinctive,” said Michihiro Ose, a spokesman for the Japanese army’s 22nd infantry regiment. The men were among 25,000 troops given the morbid duty of searching the rubble, the seas and the swamps of northeastern Japan for the bodies of the nearly 12,000 people still missing in last month’s earthquake and tsunami. The two-day operation was the biggest military search since the March 11 disaster. With waters receding, officials hoped the troops, backed by police, coast guard and U.S. forces, would make significant progress. By Monday evening, they had found 38 bodies, the military said.

No violation for beard law

Virginia’s prison system did not violate a Muslim inmate’s religious rights when it refused to allow him to grow a 1/8-inch beard, which he believes is required by his religion, a federal judge has ruled. William Couch, a 50-year-old Sunni Muslim, is a medium-security prisoner serving multiple life sentences for rape and other convictions. He challenged the Virginia Department of Corrections’ grooming policy, which bans long hair and beards. U.S. District Judge Samuel G. Wilson in Harrisonburg sided with the department in a ruling Thursday. Couch’s attorney, Jeffrey Fogel, filed an appeal Monday. Department spokesman Larry Traylor declined to comment on the case.

Workers protest benefit cut

Ex-Soviet governments are failing to protect their people from the deadly legacy of the Chernobyl disaster, former cleanup workers and environmental groups charged Monday on the eve of ceremonies commemorating the 25th anniversary of the world’s worst nuclear accident. Russia, Ukraine and Belarus have cut the benefits packages for sickened cleanup workers in recent years, and many workers complained directly to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev as he handed them awards for their work. Officials in Bryansk, the Russian region most contaminated by the disaster, have failed to make necessary repairs at the local cancer hospital, worker Leonid Kletsov told the president.

cells and disappeared into the night. Kandahar remains relatively warm even during winter and the ground would not have frozen while insurgents were digging the tunnel. Police showed reporters the roughly hewn hole that was punched through the cement floor of the prison cell. The opening was about 3 feet (1 meter) in diameter, and the tunnel droppedstraightdownforabout5feet and then turned in the direction of the house where it originated. But access was denied to the tunnel itself, and it was unclear how the Taliban were able to move so many men out of the prison so quickly. Also unclear was why guards would not have heard the diggers punch through the cement floor, and whether they supervise the inside of the perimeters at night.

By PINKY MEHTA and JIM SALTER Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — People in floodprone parts of Kentucky packed up and headed for higher ground Monday and officials in Missouri began evacuating hundreds of people as the levee that protects their town threatened to burst. Forecasters called for severe storms that will drop more heavy rain across the lower Ohio and Mississippi River valleys, compounding the misery from a storm system that pounded the region last week and over the weekend, spawning tornadoes and washing away roads.

Giffords will attend launch of Endeavour She will return to resume rehabilitation shortly after watching husband’s ascent. By RAMIT PLUSHNICK-MASTI Associated Press

HOUSTON — Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords can fly to Florida this week to watch her astronaut husband rocket into space as commander of the space shuttle Endeavour, but she will return shortly after the launch to resume rehabilitation, her doctors in Houston confirmed Monday. The doctors at TIRR Memorial Hermann said Giffords is "medically able" to travel and that they view the trip to Cape Canaveral as part of her rehabilitation from a



gunshot wound to the head. "Medically, there is no reason she could not travel safely to Florida to participate in this incredible event with her husband," said Dr. Dong Kim, director of the Mischer Neuroscience Institute at Memorial Hermann. The last time Giffords flew was when she was transported on a private jet from the hospital in Tucson, Ariz., that treated her immediately after the Jan. 8 shooting to Houston, where she has been un-

dergoing intensive rehabilitation. But this time, her flight is not an ambulance transport, Kim added. "She is medically able and well enough to travel without additional risks," said Kim, who also serves as professor and chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School. ABC and CBS News initially reported on Sunday that doctors had given Giffords the green light to attend the launch. Being there for the Endeavour’s final flight — commanded by Giffords’ husband, NASA astronaut Mark Kelly — was a goal for the congresswoman and her family. "Attending the launch is an

opportune time for her to continue her therapy progression," said Dr. Gerard Francisco, lead physician of the brain injury rehabilitation team and chief medical officer at TIRR Memorial Hermann. "We routinely allow patients outside visits as part of their rehabilitation," he said in a statement. "She has made remarkable progress in her rehabilitation, and we saw no reason why she could not travel safely to Florida." Still, doctors said Giffords will return to Houston to resume the rehabilitation "shortly after the launch" and emphasized that "provisions have been made with NASA regarding Giffords’ care while she is in Florida." The launch is scheduled for 3:47 p.m. Friday.

BEIRUT — In a sharp escalation of Syria’s crackdown on dissent, thousands of soldiers backed by tanks poured Monday into the city where the five-week-old uprising began, opening fire indiscriminately on civilians before dawn and killing at least 11 people, witnesses said. Bodies were scattered in the streets “They have and activists snipers said the death firing on toll could rise. The offensive everybody into the southern city of Daraa who is was planned in moving.’’ comprehensive Witness detail: electricity, water and mobile phone services were cut. Knife-wielding security agents conducted houseto-house sweeps, neighborhoods were sectioned off and checkpoints set up — suggesting Syria planned to impose military-style control on the city and other areas in the country. “They have snipers firing on everybodywhoismoving,”saidawitness who spoke to The Associated Press by telephone, asking that his name not be used out of fear for his own safety. “They aren’t discriminating. There are snipers on the mosque. They are firing at everybody,” he said. The massive assault into Daraa appeared to be part of new strategy for crippling pre-emptive strikes againstanyoppositiontoPresident Bashar Assad, rather than reacting to marches and protests. Other crackdowns and sweeping arrests were reported on the outskirts of Damascus and the coastal town of Jableh — bringing more international condemnation and threats of targeted sanctions by Washington. But the assault on Daraa, an impoverished city on the Jordanian border, was by far the biggest in scope and firepower. Video shot by activists purported to show tanks rolling through streets and over fields. Youths pelted the passing tanks with stones, the video showed. More than 350 people have been killed across the country since the uprising began in mid-March, touchedoffbythearrestofteenagersin Daraa who scrawled anti-government graffiti on a wall. But the relentless crackdowns have only emboldened protesters, who started with calls for modest reforms but are now increasingly demanding Assad’s downfall.








Report: Pa.’s emergency Bar panel to discuss amending constitution mortgage program cheaper

Home fire-sprinkler mandate repealed The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Tom Corbett has signed his first bill as Pennsylvania’s governor — repealing a requirement that fire sprinkler systems be installed in all new one- and two-family homes. A crowd of the bill’s supporters packed a midafternoon news conference Monday. Corbett posed for pictures with many of them after signing the legislation. The bill was approved by margins of nearly 2-1 in the state House and Senate earlier this month. Proponents say sprinklers save lives by extinguishing fires before firefighters can get to the scene. Opponents, led by the Pennsylvania Builders Association, say it would drive up housing prices unnecessarily. The Republican governor calls the bill a matter of common sense. He says builders will still be required to offer homebuyers the option of installing a sprinkler system.


WILKES-BARRE – A special commission of the Pennsylvania Bar Association will hold a hearing on Wednesday to discuss whether a constitutional convention should be held to address serious issues the association says plague the state legislature and judiciary. The hearing at Wilkes University will explore a number of issues, including the debate over whether the state should turn to merit selection of judges and concerns regarding the process utilized in the reapportionment of legislative districts, said attorney Art Piccone, who helped organize the hearing. The hearing, open to the public, is sponsored by the Constitutional Review Commission, a 30-member panel of attorneys that was formed in February to examine various aspects of the government and judiciary. Attorney John Hanna of Indiana, co-chair of the commission, said the commission was partly an outgrowth of contro-

the districts every 10 years in response to the U.S. Census. The process has been highly controversial in the past as legislators of the political party in power in the House and Senate have been accused of gerrymandering – dividing the districts up to ensure they are dominated by residents of their party. “There are a lot of people who felt this is not the right way to reapportion. It should be predicated by a group of people who are least affected by it,” Piccone said.

line Musto Carroll and Chief Public Defender Al Flora, Sen. Stewart Greenleaf, R-Willow Grove, and Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township. Piccone said there has also been considerable debate over whether the state should do away with letting voters choose state and local judges in favor of merit selection made by special committees. Lynn Marks, executive director of Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts, will speak in favor of merit selection. Peter Paul Olszewski Sr., a retired superior court judge and former Luzerne County judge, will speak against it, Piccone said. The hearing is among numerous hearings that are being held throughout the state by various subcommittees. Once they have concluded, the entire commission will review reports and issue a recommendation, which will be forwarded to state legislators for consideration. “Our responsibility is to determine if there should be a constitutional change,” Piccone said. “We are not redrafting the constitution, we are only making recommendations.’’


WASHINGTON — As Republicans try to kill an Obama administration foreclosure prevention program that even Democrats agree hasn’t lived up to expectations, a program in Pennsylvania is being lauded for being simpler, cheaper and more effective. It’s called the Pennsylvania Homeowners Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program, and it was established in 1984, long before the recent mortgage crisis. The program gives bridge loans to people who have recently lost their jobs. AndarecentstudyfromtheNew YorkFedsaysthePennsylvanialaw works far better than the $30 billion national program set up in 2009 called the Home Affordable Modification Program, which so far has led to 630,000 loan modifications, against a target of 3 to 4 million. Last year, Pennsylvania had the 26th-highest unemployment rate, of 8.7 percent, but the 37th-highest foreclosure rate, of 0.93 percent, according to Labor Department and RealtyTrac data. The New York Fed study says the HEMAP program can be cheaper for taxpayers and help a large number of troubled homeowners. It compares the two approaches by evaluating costs on assistance for two hypothetical mort-

gages valued at $210,000 at the time of unemployment. The HAMP modification program, the report argues, costs the federal government $13,600 while the HEMAP program cost Pennsylvania $1,620. The report said the HEMAP program can be cheaper in part because when the homeowner finds a job again, the loan ends and he or she begins to repay it. Loans do not accrue interest until the participant’s income is restored. The HAMP program, on the other hand, provides taxpayer-funded assistance to bank servicers, who, in turn, modify the borrower’s current mortgage payments, and those adjustments stay in effect for five years regardless of whether the borrower returns to employment. HAMP makes initial taxpayer-funded payouts to the servicers of $1,000 for each permanent modification, followed by an additional $1,000 a year for three years as long as the borrower remains current in paying their mortgages. Besides being cheaper at the outset, the New York Fed report says that roughly 80 percent of HEMAP loan recipients have retained ownership of their homes, and that the program has largely become self-funded because most borrowers find jobs and have paid back their loans.

versies -- including the “Bonusgate” investigation in Harrisburg and the Luzerne County corruption probe -- that have plagued the state in the past few years. The Bonusgate investigation led to the arrests of several legislators and staffers who were accused of doing political work on state time, while the county corruption probe led to the arrests of dozens of people, including three judges. “There has been public debate over the past few years about how well or ineptly state government operates and whether there should possibly be amendments made to the constitution to remedy problems the government faces and has failed to address,” Hanna said. Wednesday’s hearing is being held by a subcommittee of the commission that is tasked at examining issues relating to the pending realignment of legislative districts and concerns regarding the operation of the judiciary. Piccone said the first session will feature several speakers who will address concerns regarding the current system that is utilized to redraw legislative boundaries. The Legislature must redraw

LEGISLATIVE BRIEFS HARRISBURG – State Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, is encouraging UGI Central Penn Gas customers to participate in a public input hearing by telephone on May 9 to voice concerns about a recent rate increase request filed with the Public Utility Commission. The company has filed a rate increase request of 15.4 percent, or $16.5 million for natural gas distribution. UGI-CPG is also asking to raise the residential customer charge from $13.25

per month to $20 per month. Those who are interested in calling in to testify must first call the Office of Consumer Advocate at 1-800-684-6560 before 5 p.m. May 5 to sign up for the hearing. They will then be provided with a call-in number for the hearing, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 9. Only people who sign up before the deadline will be permitted to testify. UGI-CPG serves customers in 35 counties in Pennsylvania, including Exeter and West Pittston boroughs in Mundy’s legislative district.




Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Capitol East Wing Rotunda to unveil legislation that would help ease the state’s budget problems and create tax fairness for Pennsylvania-based companies. It

also would lower the corporate net income tax rate. Mundy will discuss legislation she is introducing to close the “Delaware loophole,” which allows large multi-state corporations that do business in Pennsylvania to avoid paying their

share of corporate income taxes by creating shell companies in Delaware. Her bill also would reduce the corporate income tax rate so that Pennsylvania would remain competitive with other states.

Moses files theft-conviction appeal Ex-LCCC dean’s lawyer says judge erred in allowing certain evidence at trial. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A former associate dean at Luzerne County Community College said in court papers he is appealing his jail sentence because a judge erred by allowing certain evidence at his July trial. William Ruzzo, an attorney for Peter Paul Moses, 59, of South Main Street, WilkesBarre, said in court papers filed late last week that evidence including that Moses removed money directly from a cash register at the college and that Moses had previously declared bankruptcy should not have been permitted at his trial. Moses was sentenced in August by Luzerne County Senior Judge Kenneth Brown to four to 23 months in county jail, followed by four years probation on four counts of theft. Moses was found guilty after a jury trial in July. His prison sentence is on hold until the outcome of the appeal, originally filed in January. He was charged in September 2008 with stealing more than $17,000 and two laptop computers from the school. Moses, who was the associate dean of ad-

ministration and auxiliary services, oversaw the cafeteria and Educational Conference Center and was paid apMoses proximately $73,000 a year in salary. Before the July trial, Ruzzo said in court papers that Brown granted the prosecutors’ request to present evidence that Moses had taken money directly from a cafeteria register based on an allegation in the affidavit of probable cause and that prosecutors may present evidence Moses was in bankruptcy and had suffered a wage garnishment during the time he allegedly committed the crimes. Ruzzo said the judge denied other requests, including presenting evidence that Moses had made $1,228 in restitution and that prosecutors wanted to present evidence that Moses lived a “lavish lifestyle” of gambling. Ruzzo said the judge erred in allowing prosecutors to show evidence that Moses took money directly from the cash registers because there was actually no mention of it in the affidavit. He also argued that the judge allowed prosecutors to introduce evidence

Moses was sentenced to four to 23 months in county jail, followed by four years probation on four counts of theft. of Moses’ bankruptcy and wage garnishment, but “the commonwealth failed to present any evidence of sudden wealth by the defendant at the time the alleged crimes were committed.” Moses’ attorney also said that prosecutors shouldn’t have been allowed to tell jurors about Moses’ alleged “prior bad acts” – which were not elaborated on in court papers. During the trial, a food service worker, Michalene Vanderhoff, testified she saw Moses reach into a cash register after December 2007, take out money and leave the cafeteria. Moses, who testified in his own defense, said people who testified against him were either inaccurate or perhaps weren’t telling the truth about him. He denied being a part of any corruption.

Don’t use debt as political threat


HE MOST important thing to know about raising the debt ceiling is this: The federal budget is not anything like your family budget. Dealing with the federal debt is not the same as cutting up your credit cards and vowing to pay cash going forward. Many people apparently do not understand this: That’s the only explanation for why seven out of 10 say they don’t want Congress to raise the “debt ceiling.” Some background: The United States borrows 42 cents of every $1 that Congress already has voted to spend. To get this money, it issues bonds on which it pays interest. But there is a limit – a ceiling – for how much it may borrow. Right now, that’s $14.3 trillion. When the country gets close to that limit, Congress must vote to raise it to keep paying

its bills. And it always has: 74 times since 1962, 10 times in the past decade, seven times when George W. Bush was president. But some conservative members of Congress are threatening yet another political standoff like the one they engineered a few weeks ago, in which they took the government to the brink of a shutdown. Even if the crisis lasted for only a few days, the long-term effects would be calamitous. “If anyone wants to push that button, which I think would be catastrophic and unpredictable, I think they’re crazy,” Jaime Dimon, CEO of the investment bank J.P. Morgan Chase, told the Associated Press. Threatening the stability of the U.S. economy as part of a political strategy is not only cynical – it’s dangerous. Philadelphia Daily News

s the readers of this newspaper may know, Pennsylvania is facing a $4 billion state budget deficit. Aside from the discussion about various program cuts and the potential state liquor store privatization, the idea that I have heard about most deals with film industry tax credits. Are you kidding me? The Hollywood hubbub is over whether a paltry $60 million in credits should be cut to ameliorate the deficit. For some reason, there hasn’t been much discussion regarding some $300 million in tax money on which Pennsylvania is missing out. By exploiting a legal loophole, online-only retailers are not required to charge their customers sales tax. Huge online retailers, such as Amazon, then pass the burden of paying sales tax on to their customers. Since most consumers are unaware of this responsibility, these sales taxes often go unpaid. Not only are deserved sales taxes unpaid, small business owners all over the Wyoming Valley and Pennsylvania are adversely affected. Potential entrepreneurs and employers are discouraged by the unfair advantage enjoyed by online retailers. It’s important that this loophole is closed. Not only would local small business owners benefit from the even playing field, but also the state would enjoy a massive revenue infusion. Doesn’t it just make sense? Adam Stefanski Dunmore

Plymouth official disputes candidate’s calculations


lif Madrack is a “candidate” once again and, as such, is running a campaign based on distortions. Recently, Madrack took pen in hand and authored a letter. He claims Plymouth council raised property taxes 122 percent in three years. Here’s the real story: In 2008, millage stood at 59.3; in 2009, as the result of reassessment, millage was 2.37. This represents a decrease of 96 percent between 2008 and 2009. In 2010, millage increased to 3.4; in 2011 it increased to 5.7. As a result of reassessment and subsequent 97 percent decrease, the ensuing increases calculate to 14 percent, not the 122 percent in Madrack’s fuzzy math. People realize in their home budgets just how much expenses have risen over the last three years. Meanwhile, borough employees have tightened their belts and accepted a two-year pay freeze. Madrack makes no note of this. There was a time in the not too-distant past when Plymouth had but one full-time police officer. Now it has four full-time officers and five parttimers. Protecting the citizenry is a prime

concern of council. In his letter, Madrack refers to a “10minute” meeting to pass the budget. By law, the budget must be advertised in the newspaper, and it always is. Then there’s a 10-day period for the public to inspect it. In fact, Madrack and his “team” were at the borough building to review the budget. Finally, Madrack said he wants a transparent government. No one is more transparent than Madrack, and that is why he’ll never get elected to office. Joseph A. Mazur Borough administrator Plymouth

Lake resident hopes community stays pristine


have high hopes for the future of Harveys Lake. The borough council, Mayor Clarence Hogan and solicitor Charles McCormick listened intently to the serious concerns and fears the residents voiced in opposition to natural gas drilling. The bottom line is the protection and preservation of this pristine lake community and its laid-back way of life. Presently the population of 2,932 residents is threatened by 1,100 acres of gas leases. The evidence is irrefutable on the two serious hazards from hydraulic fracturing. The first is the potential for explosions and blowouts in wells, compressor stations and pipelines. The second is the state allowing the drilling wastewater to permeate the environment after inadequate treatment. Health problems can arise from exposure to pernicious drilling wastewater containing volatile carcinogenic, organic compounds. The state is not protecting us due to the environmental exemptions for the oil and gas industries. I have high hopes that Harveys Lake Council, with the advisement of solicitor McCormick and the Environmental Action Committee, will create a zoning ordinance to prohibit natural gas drilling in the borough. I have high hopes that Council will participate with The Back Mountain Community Partnership to join in this fight to keep our Back Mountain beautiful. There is power in numbers and strength in unity. If you love Harveys Lake as much as I do, contact council members with your concerns. Contact state Rep. Karen Boback and state Sen. Lisa Baker. These elected officials are our Back Mountain


neighbors. These public servants have been voted into office not only to listen to the people, but also to be the voice of the people. This is as much a personal issue as it is a political issue. I have high hopes that our elected officials will put citizens ahead of corporations and people ahead of politics. I have high hopes that they will do the right thing as our neighbors who live and work in this great place called the Back Mountain. Give them a call if you care. Preserve and protect Harveys Lake.

Turning a great nation into Third World country


ow do you make a great nation a Third World country? Control the people; make them dependent on government. Remove God whenever possible. Support inflation and make it happen; it makes the population poorer and more reliant on government. Devalue the currency by printing money at a record pace. Tell them that outrageous debt is good as long as the government is running full-steam ahead. Open up the borders so more people can be taken care of by the government. Take away their guns. Tell them what foods to eat. Take over the farming industry and determine what is best for the population. Tell them what cars to drive. Tell them that green energy is the way to go, no matter what the cost. Take away their pride and ambition. If the government taxes success and redistributes the wealth, they become like zombies. They will ultimately give up. Anyone else see the similarities between the above description and the Obama administration and the rising of the Tea Party? The Tea Party is America’s last stand against a tyrant and a group of elected elitists whose ultimate goal is to make this country a Third World, socialist state. I’d say they are doing a good job.

Coyer, a forensic toxicologist with Northern Tier Research, testified he analyzed eight samples of bath salts purchased at different merchants in Luzerne County earlier this month. He said the active ingredient in bath salts – MDPV – is related to ecstasy and another ingredient, Methadrone, is a stimulant similar to methamphetamines. “It is only used to get high,” Coyer said. Dr. Keith G. Vrabec, an emergency room physician at Geisin-

companies, which “caused the release, spill, discharge, and emission of combustible gases, hazardous chemicals, and industrial wastes from their oil and gas drilling facilities.” The releases caused damages including loss of home values, costs of property remediation, loss of quality of life, emotional distress and punitive damage. The amount in dispute exceeds $75,000, the petition states. O’Malley said clauses in the leases require arbitration for such disputes, but the companies have refused to arbitrate. He said arbitration would be faster than a full-blown court case and the families need relief now. O’Malley said water purification systems Chesapeake installed for the families work poorly if at all and improper installation led to flooding and mold problems in one family’s home. “It has been one nightmare after another for them,” he said. A Chesapeake spokesman, who was unaware of the petition, said he would look into the matter but did not call back on Monday.

PENSION Continued from Page 1A

Conahan pleaded guilty in July 2010 to one count of racketeering conspiracy. The pension dispute has remained pending as the criminal cases worked their way through the court system. The hearing before the hearing examiner pertains only to Ciavarella’s case, said Robert Gentzel, spokesman for SERS. Conahan’s case remains pending, but no hearing date has been set. Key part of issue Al Flora, Ciavarella’s attorney, said the key issue remains a dispute over whether the crimes for which Ciavarella was convicted fall under a provision of state pension law that permits the de-

with Disabilities Act. At the hearing, Karpovich concluded his case by questioning Rich Varaly, planning consultant, who originally drafted Hazle Township’s Zoning Code in 2003. Varaly stated that Section 621 of that code, which allows for distinguishing between medical facilities and methadone clinics, has been pre-empted by state case law and is no longer enforceable. After Karpovich had concluded, James Montone, the board’s chairman, invited residents of Hazle Township to make statements. Beginning with resident Michelle Geddes, each resident who spoke did so in opposition of the clinic. Geddes expressed concern in regard to traffic issues caused by clients who were under the influence of methadone. She

Taber said the possible levying of fines was “an ongoing matter.” O’Malley said his clients were “not going to get rich” through the gas leases because each family owns only 2 acres of land. He said they signed the leases because a land man convinced them it would reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign oil. O’Malley said he is representing about 10 other families in different locations who have suffered similar problems that he says were caused by Chesapeake or Chief Gathering. nial of benefits to persons convicted of certain crimes related to their public employment. Ciavarella contends his convictions do not equate to crimes that would trigger the forfeiture of his pension, which equals $5,156 a month. Should SERS determine they do, Flora said Ciavarella maintains he is still entitled to collect his pension from the date he first sought the benefits up until the day he was convicted. Regarding the DPW claim, the department is seeking nearly $250,000 in contributions and interest that Ciavarella made to his pension. Under state law, Ciavarella would be entitled to recoup that money, less the interest it accrued, even if his crimes are deemed to be a forfeitable offense. SERS has refused to release the money, however, based on the DPW claim. shared that Pa. Senate Bill 1378, still pending, would add methadone to the list of drugs covered by DUI laws. She also cited an accident involving two deaths in Clearfield that was caused by a client of a Discovery House clinic there. Dave Boganski of Lattimer, a resident of Hazle Township, and also a candidate for magisterial judge, provided research that indicated that in three of Discovery House’s clinics in Pennsylvania, there had been more than 2,000 infractions of state regulations and that many of them had been repeated even after the original citation. James Dixon, who stated that he had spent time under cover in his work as a detective, said that in his experience, methadone clinics often attract active drug users who engage in “theft, drug sales and prostitution.” John Gatti, whose statement that he had “11 years clean and sober” was met with applause

Dr. Keith G. Vrabec In testimony about bath salts users

E PA S E E K S B L O W O U T D ATA F R O M D R I L L E R The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has directed Chesapeake Energy Corp. to supply by today information about the discharge of drilling fluids from a natural gas well last week in Leroy Township, Bradford County. While the state Department of Environmental Protection is the lead agency in responding to the incident, EPA staff is requesting information on hydraulic fracturing fluids used in the drilling process at the well; water, land and air affected by the release; and any private well, surface water and soil sampling data collected in the area before and after the April 19 incident. The “information request,” authorized under three federal statutes, was sent to Chesapeake Energy officials on Friday, according to an EPA press release. “We want a complete accounting of operations at the site to determine our next steps in this incident and to help prevent future releases of this kind,” said EPA Regional Administrator Shawn M. Garvin. EPA directed that the company provide additional information by May 9 on: • Details of the incident, including timelines, sources of discharge and the extent of environmental impact • Substances placed into or returned to the surface from the wells at the site • Whether radiological compounds are or were present in the fluids or sediment generated as part of the well development • Results of any subsequent sampling data • Effects on any drinking water

DPW contends it is entitled to the money to partially reimburse the state for $4.3 million in additional costs it says it incurred due to Ciavarella’s alleged improper detention of children. The state also contends it paid higher costs to house juveniles at the private PA Child Care center, which took juveniles after Conahan shut down the countyrun facility. Flora said he believes the outcome of Ciavarella’s trial has hurt DPW’s chances of securing that money given that the jury found only that he had illegally accepted nearly $1 million from the builder of the PA Child Care Center. It did not find that he had incarcerated juveniles for financial gain. There was also no evidence that Ciavarella negotiated the rates that were paid to PA Child Care, Flora said.

supplies • All permits or water quality standards that may have been violated • Any other leaks, spills or releases that have occurred at wells on the drilling site • The history of drilling operations at the well site • Each chemical brought to the site, including type and quantities and storage, management and handling practices • Any temporary wastewater storage impoundments on the site • Processing of wastewater from wells at the site In an e-mailed statement, Chesapeake spokesman Brian Grove said Chesapeake well-control specialists completed efforts to achieve permanent well control of the Atgas 2H well at 6:05 p.m. on Monday by replacing the damaged wellhead with a fully competent wellhead. “Tests thus far indicate only minimal environmental impact as a result of this incident. Additional testing will be done in conjunction with DEP to fully assess and remediate any environmental impacts. Chesapeake will continue to work with the appropriate regulatory agencies to investigate and determine the cause of the equipment failure,” Grove said. He added that Chesapeake “greatly appreciates the professional and responsive assistance of federal, state and local agencies that participated in these efforts, specifically the efforts of local responders, including Bradford County Emergency Management Agency, the Western Alliance EMS and the Canton Fire Department.’’

One issue resolved The scheduling of the June 2 hearing resolves a separate case Ciavarella filed in Commonwealth Court that sought to force SERS to hold a hearing. A hearing on that matter was scheduled for today, but was cancelled by Flora. Gentzel, spokesman for SERS, said the hearing before the hearing examiner is the first step in the process. Once the hearing concludes, each side will be given a chance to file legal briefs in support of their positions. The hearing examiner will review that information, as well as testimony, and issue a recommendation to the SERS board of directors, which has the final say. Should the board rule against Ciavarella, he would have the option of appealing the decision to Commonwealth Court.

Other residents of the township also shared with the board and mentioned that they felt that this clinic would encourage increased criminal activity,

both in the building that housed the clinic and in the general area. They mentioned concerns in regard to their children and the elderly of the area. After the statements, the board met in executive session. The announcement that Discovery House’s request had been denied was met with applause and verbal approval from the audience.


BAMBERA Continued from Page 1A

Catholics moved into booming communities of Monroe and Pike counties. The number of available priests had halved from a high of 442 in 1960. Religious sisters who had long kept Catholic school costs low by teaching for a relative pittance became a rarity. Martino launched two massive undertakings that rattled the faithful. In January 2007, he announced the closing of numerous schools, including six elementary schools and three high schools in Luzerne County. In January 2009, he announced plans to shutter nearly half the churches in the diocese. Seven months later, citing “bouts of insomnia” and “crippling fatigue,” Martino stepped down. His tenure as the ninth bishop in Scranton was the second shortest in diocesan history. Bambera, a diocesan native, was immediately tabbed to handle day-to-day management until a new bishop was appointed. Asked at the time if he thought he would ultimately get that post, he somewhat famously quipped, “Surely they can find someone better suited for the job than me.” Six months later, the Vatican announced Bambera would be bishop. Affable and widely liked in the parishes where he had served, Bambera faced his first rebuke barely three hours after the announcement at a press conference in February 2010. David Clohessy, director of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, called Bambera “a poor choice,” citing Bambera’s comments during the trial of a priest accused of sexual misconduct with an altar boy. Clohessy argued Bambera had acknowledged helping cover up the scandal, a charge Bambera denied. Clohessy and SNAP leveled similar accusations last month after the diocese announced misconduct allegations had been made against a priest by someone in Missouri, where the priest had previously served. SNAP claimed the bishop had waited five weeks before publicizing the allegations, prompting the diocese to release a detailed timeline of how the case was handled. Multiple church closings Bambera also had to cope with the church closings ordered by Martino, and has hewn closely to the original plan. Unlike Martino, he has met with several people fighting some of the closings, earning praise for his willingness to discuss concerns. Nine churches appealed their closings, staving off the process with varied success. St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Hazleton, for example, was initially scheduled to close by July 2010, but the appeal delayed the final Mass to this Saturday. Sacred Heart in Wilkes-Barre had also been scheduled to close by July 2010, but a rigorous opposition not only delayed that, but managed to convince the pastor to resume daily Mass in the church recently. Bambera has also continued to struggle with declining school enrollment and escalating costs. He increased tuition rates in order to lower the amount churches are expected to contribute to schools. On April 11, he announced the closing of four more elementary schools, two in Lackawanna County and two in Luzerne. Tonight, he is set to announce the relocation of Holy Family Academy in Hazleton, currently occupying the former Bishop Hafey High School building, which Bambera said is too large for the enrollment.

manufacturing jobs is driving people into other sectors, mainly the professional or business related ones. The trade, transportation and utilities supersector was up 600 jobs over the month. Retail trade gained 400, and transportation, warehousing, and utilities gained 200. Both had gains above their average March movements, according to a report released by the state in advance of today’s data. Leisure and hospitality gained

“Have I heard or seen anything that is hopeful or promising as we look to the future? Yes. Yes, indeed!”

But these are inherited problems. In his first year as bishop, Bambera has increasingly charted his own course with emphasis on accessibility and planning. Two days after his installation as bishop on April 26, 2010, Bambera visited St. VinDePaul Bishop cent in Bambera Kitchen Wilkes-Barre to dine with the disadvantaged. One woman called him “a regular guy.” Bambera “high-fived” a tot in a stroller, and signed an impromptu autograph on a Post-it note. He has followed up with repeated excursions into the diocese, regularly announcing his public schedule to media and inviting coverage. ‘Administrative review’ Bambera hired an outside consultant to do an “administrative review” of the diocese, which is ongoing, though the review led to the recent creation of a department of property and risk management. Since his installation, the diocesan website has undergone a dramatic redesign, with increased emphasis on recruiting men into the priesthood, enticing people and groups to rent the Fatima Center near Dalton as a retreat or meeting place, and pitching the value of the diocesan school system – including a page for alumnae to register. The new bishop has had to cope with his own scandals, including the dismissal of School Superintendent Joseph Casciano in January 2010 following an investigation of abuse allegations by the Lackawanna County District Attorney. No charges were filed because the statute of limitations had expired. After years of repeated red ink in the diocesan administrative budget, Bambera cautiously announced a modest surplus when unveiling the latest financial statements in March. The diocese has hinted at possible new directions with two large transactions. In December the sale of St. Michael’s school near Tunkhannock – serving students with behavior and emotional problems – was finalized. Martino had decided in 2007 that the school’s mission no longer fit the diocese. Earlier this month, Bambera announced the purchase of The Heritage House, a Wilkes-Barre facility offering a broad range of living arrangements for the elderly. But if there is to be a hallmark effort by Bambera, a likely candidate is his open-ended request – first made in November 2010 -- for input from the faithful to help “articulate a vision for the future of the diocese.” In his Chrism Mass homily last Thursday, Bambera said the most frequent comments so far have been about the loss of churches, schools and parish communities, and concern about the ongoing priest scandals. But he also cited positive signs, including conversion of a former church-run orphanage in Nanticoke into housing for the poor and elderly. “Have I heard or seen anything that is hopeful or promising as we look to the future”” Bambera said, “Yes. Yes, indeed! And I pray that you have as well.” The Rev. Gerald Gurka, pastor of St. John the Baptist Church in Larksville, agreed. “He has made incredible strides to be out there with all of us,” Gurka said. “It has been a year of encouragement and a year of hope, and I sense that from all of us. The priests have a great sense of hope.” 400 over the month, and was up 600 over the year. This was a typical seasonal movement for this supersector, according to the report. After two months of having the lowest unemployment rate in the three-county area, Luzerne was passed by Lackawanna. Lackawanna’s rate dropped from 9.1 in February to 8.6 in March. Luzerne also declined but only from 8.9 to 8.7. Wyoming, as it had the first two months of the year, had the highest rate of the three at 9.2 percent. Liuzzo said that an unemployment rate below 8 is possible by the end of the year, but dipping below 7 is unlikely.

trict court exceeded its jurisdiction, seeking relief from the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. Nelson granted a request for a preliminary injunction to lift the lockout, saying she was swayed by the players’ argument that the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987 is hurting their careers. The plaintiffs “have made a strong showing that allowing the League to continue their ’lockout’ is presently inflicting, and will continue to inflict, irreparable harm upon them, particularly

the NFL by issuing the preliminary injunction,” Nelson wrote. If the injunction is upheld, the NFL must resume business, although under what guidelines is uncertain. It could invoke the 2010 rules for free agency, meaning players would need six seasons of service before becoming unrestricted free agents when their contracts expire; previously, it was four years. The requirement for unrestricted free agents would be four years rather than the three years before 2010. There

tle — as they wanted. Also, the NFL would need to determine what or if offseason workouts can be held while the appeal is being heard. Clearly, it’s complicated. Jim Quinn, an attorney for the players said time is of the essence. “They better act quickly, because as of right now there’s no stay and, presumably, players could sign with teams,” he said. “There are no guideSee NFL, Page 6B

Tampa Bay beats Pens to force Game 7

By FRED GOODALL AP Sports Writer

TAMPA, Fla. — Steve Downie scored to snap a third-period tie and Dwayne Roloson stopped 27 shots Monday night, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning beat Marc-Andre Fleury and the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 to force a Game 7 in their first-round playoff series. The deciding game is Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, where Tampa Bay has already won twice this postseason, including an 8-2 Game 5 blowout that began its comeback from a 3-1deficit in the Eastern Conference series. Downie put the Lightning ahead for good, scoring just over a minute after Pittsburgh’s Jordan Staal gave the Penguins life with a goal that made it 2-2 early



in the third. Teddy Purcell, Sean Bergenheim and Ryan Malone also scored against Fleury, who faltered for the second straight game. Pulled after yielding four goals on 14 shots in Game 5, Fleury couldn’t protect an early lead and struggled again when Pittsburgh looked like it had regained momentum. See NHL, Page 6B

OSU warned that coach’s actions may violations relating to the coach are conresult in ‘potential major’ violations. sidered “potential major violations.”





Downie’s go-ahead goal came moments after Roloson rejected point-blank shots by Maxime Talbot and Pascal Dupuis. The Tampa Bay goalie also was at his best in the second period, when the Lightning killed four penalties and Pittsburgh’s Chris Conner failed to score on a penalty shot that would have tied the score. Malone beat Fleury, who had 17 saves, on a breakaway to make it 4-2 midway through the third. Steven Stamkos, Simon Gagne and Pavel Kubina each scored two goals in the Lightning’s Game 5 win, when Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher encouraged his players to shoot the puck more in hopes

Finding a new way to prove their resiliency


he best team in the American Hockey League just got even better. But only because the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins had to. They started their first-round playoff series against Norfolk with two straight losses and ended it with four consecutive wins. And the whole process made them feel like even bigger winners than when they led the league with 58 victories during the regular season. “If for some reason we get down in the next series,” Penguins center Joe Vitale said, “we’ll look back on what we did here.” The Penguins can draw on the resolve they showed against Norfolk, and maybe ride it all the way to a Calder Cup title. Because it’s one thing to snap a twogame losing streak when there’s a lot of season left. It’s another ballgame when you lose the first two of a seven-game series at home, then have to go on the road and try to win at least two. “I wasn’t sure whether we were going to be standing here or not,” Penguins coach John Hynes admitted after Saturday’s series-clinching 6-3 victory over Norfolk. “But I knew, with the type of guys we have here in the room, we were going to make a push.” The Penguins pushed themselves away from the panic button, even as everyone around them seemed to be hitting it. “We weren’t happy letting those two games we lost at home slip away from us,” said Steve Wagner, that dangerous Penguins defenseman who scored a natural hat trick during Saturday’s first period. So the Penguins went down to Norfolk and talked candidly amongst themselves in the locker room. “An eye-opening meeting and practice,” Vitale called it. “We were kind of bitter leaving home (down) 0-2. We knew we had to change a few things. “We got better as a team.” Suddenly, the Penguins transformed their fate. “I’m really proud of the guys,” Hynes said. “There’s a certain something that happens, momentum. It was nice to see them staying focused and staying on task.” The mission was never easy, because a couple of those one-goal victories they pulled out down in Norfolk could have went either way. Yet, the Penguins found a way to get to the second playoff round. “I think we’ve been a very confident group all year long,” said Vitale, who provided Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s fourth goal of the clincher off a pretty cross-ice pass from Tim Wallace. “We knew we had it in us.” Now they are sure. Because the next time things start to look bleak for the Penguins, they can look back on what they did against Norfolk. “We can battle through adversity,” Wagner said. “Good teams have fallen behind (by) two games, three games. “We can always look back and say, ‘We did it against Norfolk.’ ” They did it by taking the type of play that made the Penguins the best team in the league during the regular season and raising that effort to a new level. Don’t expect that intensity to start leveling off.

Schieffer is named to operate Dodgers Former Texas Rangers’ boss appointed by Selig to start new job immediately with LA. The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Former Texas Rangers president J. Thomas Schieffer was hired by Commissioner Bud Selig on Monday to run the Los Angeles Dodgers, less than aweekafterMajorLeagueBaseball took over operation of the franchise from owner Frank McCourt. Schieffer, younger brother of “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer, took over immediately. In seizing control of the franchise, MLB told the Dodgers that any expenditure of $5,000 or more would have to be approved.

The 63-yearold Schieffer served three terms in the Texas House of Representatives in the 1970s after being elected at Schieffer the age of 25. President George W. Bush appointed him ambassador to Australia in 2001, a job held until he became ambassador to Japan from 200509. In business, Schieffer managed investments in oil and gas. “Tom is a distinguished public servant who has represented the nation with excellence and has demonstrated extraordinary leadershipthroughouthiscareer,”Selig said in a statement. “The many years that he spent managing the

operations of a successful franchise will benefit the Dodgers and Major League Baseball as a whole.” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the appointment wouldn’t affect his team’s approach. “It has nothing to do with us. It doesn’t change anything about what we do or how we get ready, making pitches, making plays, being in the right spot, playing baseball,” Mattingly said before Los Angeles played at Florida on Monday night. “This is kind of year two of it. The fact MLB came in doesn’t really change anything for us.” “I don’t know if it’s going to have any effect on moves we’re able to make or not able to make. I don’t know that. But the one thing we know is we’ve got control down here,” he said.

The Dodgers took a 12-11 record into their game against the Marlins. “Wetalkedallspringaboutbeing a club that’s ready to play and our responsibility to the fans and the game of baseball, playing hard every day, being ready to play and giving it everything you’ve got without making any excuses about any situation, whether it’s travel or weather or umpires, whatever it is,” Mattingly said. “And this is anotheroneofthoseareas—it’sanarea we can’t use as any kind of excuse.” Schieffer currently is senior counsel at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, the same position held at the firm by New York Yankees president Randy Levine. Schieffer invested in the group

headed by Bush that bought the Rangers in1989 and was team president from January1991until April 1999,10 months after the team was sold from Bush’s group to Tom Hicks. Schieffer also served as general partner from November 1994, whenBushwaselectedgovernorof Texas, until Hicks took control of the team in June 1998. The Fort Worth native was the club’s partner in charge of ballpark development before the1994 opening of the Rangers’ new stadium. The Rangers won their first three AL West titles in 1996 and 1998-99 during Schieffer’s tenure. As the president of the Rangers, Schieffer was a member of several significant MLB committees and boards, including Selig’s1999 Blue Ribbon Task Force on Baseball Ec-

onomics. Once one of baseball’s most powerful franchises, the Dodgers have beeninnearconstant turmoil since October 2009, when Jamie McCourtfiledfordivorceaweekafter husband Frank fired her as the team’s chief executive. Selig told Frank McCourt last Wednesday he would appoint a MLB representative to oversee all aspects of the business and the dayto-day operations of the club. “I think everyone is of the mind that we really aren’t going to react to it,” Dodgers third baseman Casey Blake said. “Just show up here and prepare ourselves like we do every day to do what we do, and that’s play baseball and win games, and things will take care of themselves.”

Chicago White Sox pitcher Philip Humber delivers a pitch against the New York Yankees in a game at Yankee Stadium in New York Monday. Humber took a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

Humber pitches gem vs. Yanks The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Phil Humber has been on more teams than he has victories. His most impressive outing came against the ballclub that first recognized he had the talent to do something special. Humber held the Yankees hitless until Alex Rodriguez grounded a single up the middle with one out in the seventh inning Monday night and the Chicago White Sox made the effort stand up with a 2-0 victory over New York. “When I was young I had big dreams. I thought I was going to go out there and dominate every time,” Humber said. “It hasn’t worked out that way to this point.” Humber was making the sixth start of his career for his fifth team and had a career record of 3-3. Orginally drafted by the Yankees in 2001 — he turned them down to go to Rice — Humber never expected this kind of success against the All-Star lineup. “You don’t expect to hold an offense like that down especially just giving up one hit but you got to make pitches and not worry about who’s up there at the plate,” he said. The White Sox won for only the second time in 12 games. Chicago snapped a 23-inning scoreless drought in the fourth when Carlos Quentin doubled and scored on Adam Dunn’s grounder, and added a run in the ninth after a popup fell behind the mound, in front of charging shortstop Derek Jeter. Sergio Santos got the four outs for his first save and Chicago’s second save in eight chances this season. He gave the White Sox a scare, though, allowing a leadoff single to Curtis Granderson. But Mark Teixeira hit into a double play. Rodriguez struck out to end the three-hitter. “We needed that,” White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said about his bullpen. “Our bullpen’s been better over the past five or six days.” Chicago was coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of Detroit. Guillen said some of the White Sox’s problems could

be attributed to the quality of pitching they were facing. Humber (2-2) was up to the challenge against A.J. Burnett (3-1). Blue Jays 6, Rangers 4

ARLINGTON, Texas — Corey Patterson and Jose Bautista homered on consecutive pitches, tough-luck starter Kyle Drabek finally got another victory and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the AL West-leading Texas Rangers. Patterson’s three-run shot off Colby Lewis (1-3) with two outs in the fifth was followed by Bautista’s 405-foot blast to left — his majors-leading eighth homer. After pitching coach Mike Maddux visited the mound, Adam Lind drew a walk and Juan Rivera followed with his first homer of the season for a 6-0 lead. Drabek (2-0), a 23-year-old rookie and Texas native, had gotten a no-decision in three consecutive starts that the Blue Jays won after he had pitched into at least the sixth. The right-hander gave up three runs and five hits in six innings against the Rangers.

five-game winnings streak. The Diamondbacks snapped a four-game skid as they opened a 10-game home stand after being swept in three games by the Mets in New York. Kennedy (3-1) struck out 10 — including Jimmy Rollins to end the game — and walked none. He had come home early from the team’s trip for the delivery of he and his wife’s’ first child, Nora Rose, at 2:04 a.m. on Sunday. MIAMI — Omar Infante lined a two-out RBI single that left fielder Jerry Sands misjudged in the ninth inning, capping a two-run rally that helped the Florida Marlins beat the Los Angeles Dodgers. Both runs were unearned. Scott Cousins’ two-out grounder scooted under the glove of shortstop Jamey Carroll for an error to score the tying run. Chris Coghlan was then intentionally walked to load the bases, and Infante lined a 1-0 pitch to left. Sands started in, braked and leaped, and the ball sailed over his glove. Rockies 5, Cubs 3

Grizzlies grab 3-1 series lead vs. Spurs By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Mike Conley had 15 points and seven assists to help the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies rout the San Antonio Spurs 104-86 on Monday night and grab a commanding 3-1 lead in their opening series. The Grizzlies already had made franchise history by winning their first playoff game in Game 1 and added their first playoff win at home. Now they are a game away from becoming the second eighth seed to knock off a No. 1 seed since the NBA expanded to a best-ofseven series and join the 2007 Golden State Warriors. Game 5 is Wednesday in San Antonio. Darrell Arthur added 14 points off the bench for Memphis. Tony Allen had 12, Zach

Randolph and O.J. Mayo 11 apiece. Tony Parker led the Spurs with 23 points, but he also had seven turnovers. Manu Ginobili had 14, Gary Neal 11, and George Hill and Tiago Splitter 10 each. Splitter, a rookie from Brazil, had not played previously in this series. Tim Duncan had six points on his 35th birthday. These are the same Spurs that won 61 games in the regular season. They opened up very energetic, shooting well and even had their first halftime lead in this series. They finished the game with their starters on the bench for the final 5:43, and now the Spurs will be trying to avoid their second 4-1 opening series loss in three seasons. The first three games had been tight with Memphis winning by no more than three

points. The Spurs won Game 2 by six. Mavericks 93 Trail Blazers 82 DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki scored 11 of his 25 points in the third quarter and the Dallas Mavericks avoided another late collapse to beat the Portland Trail Blazers to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series. Tyson Chandler had 14 points and 20 rebounds — his most ever in a playoff game — and Jason Kidd had 14 assists to make sure Dallas bounced back strong from blowing a 23-point lead over the final 14 minutes of Game 4. Now the Mavericks have two days to rest up before trying to close out the series in Game 6 on Thursday night in Portland. It won’t be easy as the Trail Blazers have won all four meetings there this season.

PHILADELPHIA — The Flyers have their captain for Game 7. Forward Mike Richards sidestepped a punishing hit instead of delivering one on Monday, and will be in the lineup for a win-orelse Game 7 against Buffalo. Good news for the Flyers. Bad for the Sabres, who are seething. Buffalo wanted Richards suspended by the NHL for plowing center Tim Connolly head first into the boards. Connolly, who has a scary history of head injuries, left the game and will not play Game 7 on Tuesday night in Philadelphia. Richards was penalized for boarding. He was also whistled for a 5-minute major for elbowing Patrick Kaleta late in the second period of Game 4. That’s two vicious hits too many for Buffalo. Just ask goalie Ryan Miller, who called Richards “reckless.” “The guy who was complaining the most about how we were getting away with murder has delivered two of the dirtiest hits in the series,” Miller said. “A blatant elbow to the face, that is something that the league said they were going to try and take away, and driving Tim Connolly head first into the boards. “It wasn’t just a hit it was a push. It was blatant.” Richards, of course, isn’t disputing it was a hard hit. He’s just glad he has the opportunity to play, and help the defending Eastern Conference champions advance to Round 2. While he contended earlier in the series the Sabres got away with “murder” on the ice, Richards wasn’t interested in another heated exchange of words. “I’m not worried about that,” he said. “I’m worried about helping the team out and getting one by the goaltender tomorrow.” On the Buffalo side, it’s exit Connolly, enter Derek Roy. The Sabres should have Roy in the lineup for the first time since Dec. 23. The team’s leading scorer when he suffered a torn quadriceps in December, he had been ruled out of the first round. But he’ll be pressed into service with Connolly injured. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff teased on Monday that Roy might not be

up of defending division champions. The tall right-hander came up with a season-high 10 strikeouts and surrendered just three hits – all singles – to improve to 4-0 on the year, lowering his ERA to1.11. “To tell you the truth, I probably would have walked as many guys as I have this season in one inning,” Condeelis said after the win. “(My location) has definitely been spot on this year.” Condeelis said his turnaround began last summer, working with an instructor and putting in plenty of work. The improvement was immediately noticeable. “He throws strikes,” Tigers coach Gary Custer said. “Huge difference. It’s a 180. He’s very dependable, he’s around the plate, and he’s got some offspeed stuff he can throw for strikes.” With Condeelis in the rotation in place of the graduated Louis Sick, Tunkhannock (6-1) hasn’t missed a beat. With UConn recruit Mike Healey as the other top starter and Virginia recruit Mike Papi coming in to close down games, the Tigers once again have a formidable staff. Papi came on in the seventh against the Cougars on Monday, striking out two to put the game away. “Geez, it’s like managing the Yankees,” Custer joked. “How can you miss? (Condeelis) does a great job. I had a question mark in my head (before the season), but every time he takes the hill, he gets the job done. He’s doing a great job.” His work at the plate has made a difference as well, working as the No. 5 hitter behind Papi and

ready to play. But Roy insisted he’ll be in the lineup. “I wouldn’t play if I wasn’t 100 percent,” Roy said. “We were waiting for the right moment, and this work that I did has paid off. I came in every morning — first in, last out — and it’s been a long road.” The Sabres didn’t miss him. Buffalo responded by going 2911-6 in its final 46 games to clinch a playoff spot in its second-to-last game of the season. And while he’s glad to be back, certainly, Roy isn’t sure how much he can push himself in a frantic Game 7. The Flyers faced a familiar situation in Game 6 when injured defenseman Chris Pronger returned for the first time after a 21-game absence following surgery on his broken right hand. Pronger didn’t get his first shift until 10:05 into the game with the Sabres ahead 2-0. He finished with 4:33 of ice time and was limited solely to the power play. Pronger expects to see a minutes bump Tuesday. “He has been there and he knows what it takes,” Flyers forward Claude Giroux said. “Any time you’ve got a guy like Pronger in your lineup, you are going to feel more confident.” While Pronger settles back in his comfort zone, the Flyers could use an offensive jolt from Richards. He has yet to score in the series — a six-game tussle that will haunt the Sabres if they can’t find a way to win a Game 7 on the road. They coughed up a 3-1 lead in a Game 6 loss and surrendered a 3-0 lead before rallying in Game 5. Flyers coach Peter Laviolette keeps spinning the wheel in net — round and round it goes, where it stops — well, at least the Flyers know. He ended any mystery by naming veteran Brian Boucher the starter. Yes, the Flyers have used three starting goalies in the series. Sergei Bobrovsky to Boucher to Michael Leighton back to Boucher. Healey. On Monday, he drove in the game’s first run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth to score Papi. Josh McClain knocked in another run in the frame with a single that brought home Healey. Papi hit a solo homer over the fence in right-center to lead off the sixth, and Ty Saylor tacked on an insurance run with an RBI single in the seventh. Nine different Tigers recorded a hit, as the team finished with12. But the Cougars (4-2) gave themselves a chance the whole way with some hard work. Hazleton Area turned three double plays to work out of some jams, including a diving snag in center field that led to a Tunkhannock runner getting doubled off at second base. The Cougars’ best shot came in the bottom of the fifth, as Tyler Rubasky and Carl Cara both came through with a hit to bring the go-ahead run to the plate. But Condeelis managed to end the threat with another strikeout. “They’re an outstanding team,” Hazleton Area coach Gino Cara said. “We played an outstanding game against an outstanding team. We didn’t hit the ball. They outpitched us today. I don’t think we pitched poorly – they just outpitched us.” Tunkhannock

Former speedster dies

PSU introduces coach

49ers Joe Perry was first NFL player to post consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State picked a master rebuilder and 15-year coaching veteran to take over an entirely different challenge — leading the school’s fledgling Division I ice hockey program. Dressed sharply in a dark suit, a blue tie, a white shirt and a Penn State lapel pin, Guy Gadowsky looked the part of the Nittany Lions’ new hockey coach even before he was formally introduced by athletic director Tim Curley at a press conference Monday at Beaver Stadium. Gadowsky, who spent the past seven seasons coaching at Princeton, spoke of heady goals and building on the enthusiasm over the new Division I program in a hockey-savvy state before briefly trying to tamp down expectations. “You’re killing my buzz,” he exclaimed to laughs after being asked about the challenges of building the program. “The reality is, yeah, we’re going to face the best programs in the nation, and they have a bit of a head start on us. “But they don’t have our spirit, so we’re going to catch up sooner than most people think.” Gadowsky, 43, of Edmonton, took a Tigers program that had won eight games total in the previous two seasons before his arrival to ECAC and Ivy League championships and two NCAA tournament appearances. He was the 2008 Inside College Hockey National Coach of the Year. He also coached at AlaskaFairbanks, where he was credited with turning around a 20-loss team into a CCHA contender. Gadowsky has at least a year’s head start to recruit before Penn

SAN FRANCISCO — Hall of Fame fullback Joe Perry, the first player with back-to-back 1,000yard rushing seasons and nicknamed “The Jet” for his sensational speed, died Monday. He was 84. The San Francisco 49ers announced that Perry, also a World War II veteran, had died Monday in Arizona of complications from dementia. Perry was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1969 following a16-year NFL career,14 years with the 49ers and the other two for the Baltimore Colts. A three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, Perry still stands as San Francisco’s all-time leader in yards rushing (7,344) and touchdowns rushing (50). He led the 49ers in rushing on eight occasions, including seven consecutive seasons from 19491955. “I was deeply saddened to hear of Joe Perry’s passing earlier today,” 49ers owner John York said. “He was a dear friend to my family and me and to the entire 49ers organization. He was also an intricate part of our rich history. A truly remarkable man both on and off the field, Joe had a lasting impact on the game of football and was an inspirational man to the generations of players that followed him. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his wife, Donna, and his entire family. He will be sadly missed by all of us.” Perry finished with 9,723 yards rushing on 1,929 carries with 71 touchdowns in 181 career games. He also had 2,021 yards receiving on 260 catches for 12 touchdowns. He broke the NFL record for most career yards rushing, a total that was later topped by Jim Brown. Perry, who also spent a stint in the Navy and served during World War II, became the first player with consecutive 1,000-

yard seasons in 1953 and ’54. The 49ers retired Perry’s No. 34 jersey in 1971. Perry was a member of “The Million Dollar Backfield” featuring four future Hall of Famers in Perry, Hugh McElhenny, John Henry Johnson and Y.A. Tittle. For three seasons from 1954-56, they formed a fearsome foursome. The group remains the only full-house backfield to have all four of its members voted into the Hall of Fame. Perry regularly attended enshrinement ceremonies at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, supporting 49ers ownership and former players. “All of us here at the Pro Football Hall of Fame are extremely saddened to learn of the passing of the great Joe Perry,” said Hall president and executive director Steve Perry (no relation). “Joe

was not only a key figure in the history of professional football, but he was a great friend to us here at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a frequent visitor to Canton for our annual enshrinement ceremony as well as many other Pro Football Hall of Fame events. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his wife, Donna, and the entire Perry family.” Perry and McElhenny also were teammates at Compton Junior College. Perry scored 22 touchdowns in his first season. Perry was later discovered by 49ers tackle John Woudenberg while playing running back for the Alameda Naval Air Station Hell Cats. Woudenberg promptly told 49ers owner Tony Morabito and head coach Buck Shaw about Perry, the team said. Perry’s first season with San Francisco was in 1948.

NFL draft could be most unique process in 18 years By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — Strange. Unique. Weird. Those are the buzz words for this week’s NFL draft, the most unusual selection process since free agency began 18 years ago. From players to scouts to general managers to coaches, no one’s quite sure how this year’s draft will play out. Unable to plug holes with free agents because of an owners lockout in its seventh week — an injunction granted Monday to the players seeking an end to the work stoppage isn’t likely to impact the draft — NFL teams could look to pick rookies who seem more prepared to have an early impact. That goes against the general philosophy of past drafts to grab the highest-rated player, even if he doesn’t figure to contribute early on. Because many team needs have not been addressed by signing veterans, some clubs could reach in the draft to fill those holes. “I think my feeling on that is that it actually helps us with the draft,” said Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway, who now runs football operations for the Broncos. “Now we can find the best players that are on that draft board that can come in and are really going to help us, and then to fill in with free agency rather than having free agency and having to fill through the draft. “If you’re filling through the draft, then you’re drafting with need. This way we can go out and, in my opinion, get the best players for the Denver Broncos and then fill with free agency. It doesn’t put the pressure on us to draft with need. We now have the time in free agency, if we have some holes after the draft, to address those holes.” So maybe there won’t be much reaching. “I don’t want to reach for players just to fill a roster spot,” Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said. “You have to be smart. Free agency will open up again. I do know that.” And maybe there will be. “That’s the challenge all of the time and that’s a great question from that

Penn State athletic director Tim Curley, left, shakes hands with new ice hockey coach Guy Gadowsky at a news conference in State College on Monday.

State officially hits the ice as a D-I school in 2012. The Nittany Lions will be independent for now. But the move up was the impetus for Big Ten athletic directors last month to officially recommend the formation of a six-team men’s hockey league that would start play in 2013-14. The proposal is expected to be approved by Big Ten presidents in June, and would feature Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State and Wisconsin. “We are thankful for the tremendous job that Guy has done as the head coach of hockey at Princeton over the last seven years,” Princeton athletic director Gary Walters said in a statement. “Guy is the epitome of understanding the role athletics plays in the educational process at an Ivy League institution.” Gadowsky was introduced in a crowded Beaver Stadium media room that included his family, local hockey coaches and members of the current club team, the Icers. Penn State had a men’s varsity team from 1939 to 1946. The club team was started in

1971 and has won seven American Collegiate Hockey Association national titles. “I don’t look at it like we’re building from scratch at all,” Gadowsky said. “There’s already a great fan base. We’re well ahead of the game, that’s for sure.” But the Division I move was made possible through a gift from Terry and Kim Pegula, who donated $88 million — the largest private gift in Penn State history — to fund a new multipurpose arena and upgrade the men’s program. Terry Pegula, the founder and former president of an energy company involved in the natural gas industry, also bought the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres in February. Monday’s announcement ended a whirlwind week for Gadowsky, who interviewed in Happy Valley on Thursday and Friday before meeting with Pegula at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia during the Sabres’ 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series. Gadowsky then accepted the job on Sunday.

was a cut fastball from Syracuse pitcher Jeff Mandel, Maxwell was hitless in five at-bats going 0-for-3 with a pair of walks. “I knew we had opportunities all day and I’m just happy we came out ahead,” Maxwell said. “I was just looking for a pitch to drive. Just trying to get on base and not trying to do too much because usually when you try to do too much you make your swing longer to do different things.” The Yankees had plenty of opportunities before Maxwell’s shot, but they struggled with runners in scoring position going just 1-for-12 in those situations throughout the game. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth when an infield single by Kevin Russo scored Ramiro Pena. That was all the Yankees would get until the 13th though, they had several opportunities and picked up 10 hits in the game. “We put ourselves in good situations all day, we just couldn’t push a run through,” Maxwell added. Syracuse tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the sixth on a solo shot by Seth Bynum. It was his second homer in as many games off the PNC Bank scoreboard in left field The SWB defense once again played well. The biggest play for the defense came by Golson, who made the tie hold up in the seventh with his third outfield assist of the season. Tug Hullet singled to right and Jesus Flores attempted to score from second, but Golson gunned him down at the plate for the second out of the inning. Yankees starter David Phelps then struck out Chris McConnell to end the inning. Phelps ended the game going seven innings with six strikeouts and only surrendering six hits, two walks and one run. “The pitching and defense enabled us to get the home run from Maxwell,” SWB manager Dave Miley said. “You got to give Phelps credit. No matter what happened on our side, he went out and kept doing his job. As

of increasing opportunities for rebounds. The result was a barrage of goals that chased Fleury less than 15 minutes into the rout. The Lightning started slowly this time, going nearly 11 minutes without getting a shot and falling behind when Talbot took advantage of Roloson’s bad pass behind the net to feed DuPuis for his first goal of the series. That changed when Purcell scored on a rebound 8 seconds after the Penguins killed off a penalty. Bergenheim’s goal, coming off a nifty pass from Dominic

(with) honesty and integrity” and said he was lying when he filled out a compliance form in September which said he had no knowledge of any NCAA violations by any of his players. Tressel appeared at an awards banquet outside Cleveland on Monday night, ducking out of the rain to shake hands with Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren before slipping into a side room. Tressel ignored reporters’ questions about the NCAA allegations on his way to the hall before accepting a coaching award named for his late father, Lee Tressel. Athletic director Gene Smith said he would have “no comments until the case is resolved.” The university issued a statement that the allegations were consistent with what it had already self-reported to the NCAA on March 8. Tressel’s troubles began with an April 2, 2010, email from Columbus lawyer Christopher Cicero. Cicero, a former Ohio State walk-on player, informed Tressel that a federal agency had raided the house of tattoo-shop owner Eddie Rife and discovered a multitude of autographed Ohio State jerseys, cleats, pants and helmets, Big Ten championship rings and the “gold pants” trinkets given to Buckeyes players for beating archrival Michigan. Tressel responded, “I will get on it ASAP.” Yet he did not notify Smith or Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee, anyone else in the athletic department, the NCAA compliance department, or anyone in

long as you get pitching and defense, you’ll always have a chance to win and that’s what happened there today.” The Yankees’ bullpen once again did a stellar job, tossing six scoreless innings only giving up one hit and striking out five. George Kontos and Amaury Sanit each tossed two innings, while Eric Wordekemper went 1 2/3 and Andrew Sisco pitched 1/3 of an inning. The SWB ’pen hasn’t allowed a run in 14 2/3 innings. The last runs it allowed were on April 18 against Lehigh Valley. “(The bullpen) was a key to the win for us,” Miley noted. “They went out there and gave us zeroes.” Notes: After Sunday’s save the university’s legal department. Instead, he forwarded the email to Jeannette, Pa., businessman Ted Sarniak, a friend and mentor to star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who was subsequently discovered to be one of the players involved with Rife. The Columbus Dispatch reported Monday that Tressel went on to exchange at least 12 emails with Cicero, and also had numerous lengthy telephone conversations with Sarniak over the weeks and months ahead. Tressel still did not tell any of his superiors, anyone at the NCAA or his own compliance or legal departments. In September 2010, Tressel even signed a mandatory and rather routine Ohio State compliance form which clearly and simply asks if he the coach has knowledge of any NCAA violations. By signing and dating it, he said that he did not. The U.S. Attorney contacted Ohio State in December to notify the university that it had come across the memorabilia. That prompted a cursory investigation — Smith conceded to The Associated Press last week that the effort was rushed — that did not turn up the telltale emails between Cicero and Tressel but did uncover the players’ involvement with Rife. After consulting with the NCAA and the Big Ten, Pryor and four other top players were handed five-

game suspensions — curiously not including the next game, the Sugar Bowl, but beginning with the first five games of the 2011 season. Tressel was asked at a news conference if the players knew they were doing something wrong. “I suppose that would be something rattling around inside the head of each of them individually,” he said. “We all have a little sensor within us, ’Well, I’m not sure if I should be doing this.”’ At the same time he said that, Tressel later admitted he was covering up his own knowledge of the players’ violations. The NCAA and Ohio State say the case against the players is closed. It was only when Ohio State began appealing the players’ suspensions that it uncovered the emails, leading to Tressel ultimately receiving a five-game suspension and a $250,000 fine.

Smith said last week that the fine given to Tressel — who makes around $3.5 million a year — would not cover Ohio State’s costs of the investigation. Tressel has a record of 106-22 at Ohio State and won the 2002 national championship, the Buckeyes’ first in 34 years. His team went 12-1 last season, including the 31-26 win over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl. The NCAA could accept Ohio State’s suggestion of sanctions — the five-game suspension and the fine — or could levy much more severe penalties. Since the NCAA says that Tressel knowingly used ineligible players, it would seem probable that the 2010 regular season would be vacated — ending the Buckeyes’ run of Big Ten titles at six in a row. The NCAA could also come down hard on Tressel, compelling Ohio State to add to Tressel’s suspension or issue sanctions leading to the school firing him.

lines as of right now, so they have to put something in place quickly.” Owners imposed the lockout after talks broke down March 11 and the players disbanded their union. A group of players filed the injunction request along with a class-action antitrust lawsuit against the league. Nelson’s ruling simply lifts the lockout and does not address any of the antitrust issues. That will come another day. “We believe that federal law bars injunctions in labor disputes,” the league said. “We are confident that the Eighth Circuit will agree. But we also believe that this dispute will inevitably end with a collective bargaining agreement, which would be in the best interests of players, clubs and fans. We can reach a fair agreement only if we continue negotiations toward that goal.” The NFL is going forward with the draft, which begins Thursday night. Dolphins alternate player representative John Denney said he didn’t think the ruling was the end of the dispute. “Right now we got what we wanted, but it may be temporary,” he said. “We’ll have to let the judicial process play out.” At the hearing before Nelson on April 6, the crux of the argument from NFL lawyer David Boies was that the court shouldn’t have control of a conflict that grew out of a labor dispute. Boies even tried to lighten the mood by telling her, “No lawyer ever wants to stand in front of a judge and say, ’You don’t have jurisdiction.”’ The owners, in support of their argument, pointed to their pending unfair labor charge filed with the National Labor Relations Board that the players didn’t negotiate in good faith. Nelson disagreed — and threw cold water on that hope, too. “Although the NFL has filed a charge here, the NLRB has yet to issue any complaint and, in this court’s considered judgment, it is likely that the Board will dismiss the charge,” she wrote in her ruling. Nelson rejected the league’s prediction that the NLRB would see the union’s breakup as temporary, thus supporting the as-

Moore, gave Tampa Bay a lead at home for the first time in the series. The Penguins squandered 2-0 leads in Games 3 and 4 at the St. Pete Times Forum, however they recovered to win both to take a 3-1 series lead back to Pittsburgh. Notes: For the first time in the series, the team that scored first failed to win. ... Conner’s penalty shot was Pittsburgh’s sixth in postseason play, and the first since Evgeni Malkin’s failed attempt on May 1, 2008, against the New York Rangers. The Penguins have failed to capitalize on five opportunities since Jaromir Jagr’s goal May 11, 1992. in a game against the Rangers. ... Fleury fell to 12-5 all-time in the postseason, including a 6-2 mark in the past eight.

sertion that the dissolution was purely a tactical move. “There is no legal support for any requirement that a disclaimer be permanent,” Nelson wrote. “Employees have the right not only to organize as a union but also to refrain from such representation and, as relevant here, to ’de-unionize.”’ Nelson also stated that the socalled decertification was legitimate because of “serious consequences” for the players. Nelson heard arguments on the injunction at a hearing on April 6 and ordered the two sides to resume mediation while she was considering her decision. The owners and players, who failed to reach consensus after 16 days of mediated talks earlier this year, met over four days with a federal magistrate but did not announce any progress on solving the impasse. They are not scheduled to meet again until May 16, four days after another judge holds a hearing on whether players should get damages in their related fight with owners over some $4 billion in broadcast revenue. And now comes Nelson’s decision to lift the injunction. “(T)he public ramifications of this dispute exceed the abstract principles of the antitrust laws, as professional football involves many layers of tangible economic impact, ranging from broadcast revenues down to concessions sales,” she wrote. “And, of course, the public interest represented by the fans of professional football — who have a strong investment in the 2011 season — is an intangible interest that weighs against the lockout. In short, this particular employment dispute is far from a purely private argument over compensation.” With appeals expected, the fight seems likely to drag on through the spring and, possibly, into the summer. The closer it gets to August, when training camps and the preseason get into full swing, the more likely it becomes that regular season games could be lost. Osi Umenyiora, the New York Giants defensive end and one of the plaintiffs, called the ruling a “win for the players and for the fans” in a statement. “The lockout is bad for everyone, and players will continue to fight it,” Umenyiora said. “We hope that this will bring us one step closer to playing the game we love.”

Hershey earnings Hershey’s report will be the first since it said it was raising prices nearly 10 percent to offset higher costs for raw materials, packaging, fuel and transportation. But analysts don’t think that Hershey sales will suffer. They’re forecasting higher first-quarter earnings. And some are very optimistic about the rest of this year and 2012. One concern is whether convenience store sales will drop because people paying more for gas may not feel like filling up on chocolate.


Paper product prices are going up for consumers

Shoppers could soon see higher prices for Pampers and Huggies diapers, Charmin toilet paper, Bounty paper towels and Kleenex tissue. The two companies that make those products said rising costs for pulp, oil and gas led to the decision. Earnings reported by Kimberly-Clark Corp., the maker of Kleenex and Huggies, were also a factor. Kimberly-Clark said Monday its first-quarter net income fell 9 percent. To fight back, the consumer-goods giant said it will raise prices and cut costs. . The company also lowered the low end of its expectations for full-year earnings because of uncertainty about how much costs will climb. Kimberly-Clark’s first-quarter net income fell to $372 million, or 86 cents per share, from $411 million, or 92 cents per share, last year. Procter & Gamble Co., which makes Pampers, Charmin and Bounty, will report its third-quarter results Thursday. P&G informed retailers of increases last week. Retailers will decide how much of those price increases to pass along to shoppers.

WASHINGTON — More people bought new homes in March, giving the battered industry a small lift after the worst winter for sales in almost a halfcentury. New-home sales rose 11 percent last month from February to a seasonally adjusted rate of 300,000 homes, the Commerce Department said Monday. That follows three straight monthly declines. Still, the pace remains far below the 700,000 homes a year that economists view as healthy. Sales of new homes fell last year for

the fifth consecutive year and the market is showing no signs of rebounding. Economists say it could take years before sales return to a healthy pace. The median price of a new home rose nearly 3 percent from February to $213,800. New-home prices are about 34 percent higher than the median price for re-sales. That’s more than twice the markup in healthy housing markets. Builders are struggling to compete with a record number of foreclosures, which have forced down the price of resales and made them more of a bargain. The disparity has dragged on the economy.

sales but they have an out-sized impact on the broader economy. Each new home creates an average of three jobs for a year and $90,000 in taxes, according to the National Association of Home Builders. “New housing prices look much less attractive compared to cheap existing stock,” said Yelena Shulyatyeva, an analyst with BNP Paribas. “As such, new housing demand will likely remain depressed throughout this year and next.” Many builders are waiting for the glut of foreclosures and other distressed properties to be cleared before stepping up construction.

Automaker’s production in Japan down 62.7 percent in March due to parts shortage after earthquake. By SHINO YUASA Associated Press

TOKYO — Toyota’s car production in Japan plummeted a staggering 62.7 percent in March due to a parts supply crunch following the earthquake and tsunami. Toyota Motor Corp., the world’s topselling automaker last year, said Monday its domestic production in March was 129,491vehicles — the lowest since1976, when Toyota began maintaining production figures. The magnitude-9.0 earthquake and tsunami on March11destroyed many factories in northeastern Japan, causing se-

vere parts shortages for Toyota and other automakers. Given Toyota’s production woes after the tsunami, General Motors Co. is likely to reclaim the title of world’s largest automaker that it lost in 2008. Toyota sold 8.42 million vehicles last year, just keeping its lead over a resurgent General Motors Co., which sold 8.39 million, thanks to booming sales in China. The threat of production disruptions prompted the Standard & Poor’s ratings service to cut its outlook on Toyota and five other Japanese companies. Toyota said in December that its global production would total 7.7 million vehicles in 2011. But Tokai-Tokyo Securities analyst Mamoru Kato said that number would fall to around 6 million due to disrupted production. Toyota’s global production in March

Financial analysts expect Ford Motor’s earnings to come close to what the car company made in the first quarter of 2010. Ford’s sales growth of 12 percent during the quarter was down from 16 percent a year ago, when Ford still had the Mercury and Volvo brands. But analysts are upbeat about the future. They say Ford could benefit from shortages of Toyota and other Japanese cars following last month’s earthquake. And it has some of the top-selling models.

Closing 2 giants not that easy By ALAN FRAM Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Shutting down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should fit seamlessly into the Republican drive to shrink government. After all, keeping the ailing mortgage giants afloat has cost taxpayers $150 billion and many in bothpartieswantprivatelendersto finance a bigger share of the nation’s $11.3 trillion residential mortgage market. But House and Senate Republicanspushingbills to phase out both federally run companies are Bachus learning how fear, politics and old-fashioned lobbying can trump ideology. Even in the GOP-run House, leading proponents of doing Hensarling away with Fannie and Freddie aren’t predicting victory. As a precaution, they’re advancing eight bills taking bitesized swipes at McCain the issue. In the Democratic-led Senate, a sister measure by 2008 presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., faces long odds, and the Banking Committee’stopDemocratandRepublican are wary of quickly reshaping the market for financing home purchases. “There’s no consensus on it,” House Financial Services Committee Chairman Spencer Bachus, RAla., conceded in an interview this month about a sweeping overhaul bill by Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas. “I can’t promise we will build consensus.” Fannie and Freddie don’t issue mortgages but buy them from the original lenders, thus providing cash for more loans. They then package many mortgages into securities that they resell to investors, using a government guarantee that lets them pay a lower yield than their few competitors. Bachus calls Hensarling’s bill “the gold standard” for Republicans. It would halt government backing of Fannie and Freddie and end or dramatically reduce their role in mortgage financing within five years. The goal is to turn the mortgagemarketovertobanksand other private lenders, who have shied away during the relentless real estate bust of the past few years.

With likely 2012 summer launch of Wii 2, gamers in for a treat WELL, IT’S BEEN A long wait. I hope it was worth it. Nintendo has been an icon in the gaming industry for years, weathering decades of change and still managing innovation from time to time. I admit that I own and like the Wii. And apparently so do millions of others. Nintendo has dominated sales of video game consoles and sold 86 million Wiis since launching it in 2006. I have an Xbox360, but the Wii is way more appealing to me if I want casual gaming. As a console system

NICK DELORENZO TECH TALK goes, it’s just way more approachable. And as far as simple games go, arguably more fun. Alas, the Wii just doesn’t cut it in the graphics department. On modern large-scale high definition screens, it just doesn’t stack up. I notice that the edges of objects are pixilated with the Wii — something that just doesn’t happen with an Xbox360 or PlayStation 3. And so after years at the back of the pack, Nintendo has finally announced

What happens after QE2?

Are stocks heading for a June swoon? The answer will likely depend on what happens when the Federal Reserve’s $600 billion program of Treasury bond purchases ends that month. Some investors say the end of the program will send stocks falling. The program was intended to give the economy a boost. It was the Fed’s second major round of bond-buying. Economists call the strategy quantitative easing, and this round has been known as QE2. Since Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted at QE2 in late August, the S&P 500 has soared nearly 28 percent. Investors and economists are split about what happens in June. Janet Yellen, vice chair of the Fed Board of Governors, says stock prices already reflect the end of QE2. “I wouldn’t expect to see a financial market reaction,” she said in a recent speech. Some market

analysts see the end of QE2 as a sign the economy has recovered enough from the Great Recession that the Fed can stop buying bonds. “We have to take the training wheels off at some point,” says Richard Skaggs, equity strategist at Loomis Sayles. But some pessimists point to what happened after the Fed ended a program to buy mortgage bonds in April 2010. David Rosenberg, chief economist at Gluskin Sheff, noted that between April 23 and Aug. 27, the S&P 500 lost 13 percent. The yield on the 10-year Treasury fell from 3.84 percent to 2.66 percent because investors feared a double-dip recession. Bill Gross, manager of the world’s largest mutual fund at PIMCO, is also a pessimist, but has another forecast for the end of QE2: Long-term Treasury prices will fall and interest rates will rise. That could hurt the economy.

A little sun yesterday went a long way in creating spring fever. It also helped sparked off a few severe thunderstorms across Pennsylvania. With temperatures heading for that same general vicinity today and tomorrow, Tstorms will stay in the forecast as we sit in the ‘warm sector’ of a major East Coast weather system. The guts of it won't even arrive here until Thursday morning. In the mean time, we'll enjoy partly sunny skies each day, but run the risk of a stray thunderstorm, some of which could become severe. Nighttime lows will be on the warm side, if not muggy, settling in the lower 60s. - Ryan Coyle

A RISING TREND Milk banks grow more common for moms By JESSICA YADEGARAN

Contra Costa Times


fter the birth of her daughter five years ago, Cynthia Li, of Berkeley, Calif.,wasdiagnosedwithaseverethyroidconditionandwasunable to breast feed. Knowing the benefits of human milk, Li didn’t want to use formula and lamented her situation to a friend. The friend offered to send out a mass email on Li’s behalf asking like-minded moms to donate their extra breast milk.

“I didn’t even know people did that sort of thing,” Li said. Within one day, she received 20 calls. She accepted a water cooler full of breast milk from a woman whose daughter was the same age as Li’s daughter, Rosa. It may sound unusual, but sharing breast milk is a growing trend, from online trafficking to grass-roots organizations such as Eats on Feets to informal arrangements such as Li’s. It also has a long history, from wet nurses — lactating women for hire — to co-nursing among relatives, particularly in ethnic families. However, following recent warnings

from the Food and Drug Administration and the Surgeon General about the potential risks associated with donor breast milk, experts say that using an accredited milk bank — where donors are screened and expressed milk is processed in a lab — is the best way to provide human milk to a baby who cannot get it from mom. The Mothers’ Milk Bank of San Jose, one of 10 banks accredited by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America, distributed 420,000 ounces of breast milk last year, a 25 percent increase from the previous year, Executive Director Pauline Sakamoto said. The nonprofit bank is

Tips for a cleaner, safer kitchen By KATHLEEN PURVIS McClatchy Newspapers

The first day of spring has come and gone. To get the cleaning season started right, we looked for the best advice on cleaning the busiest — and maybe dirtiest — room in the house: the kitchen. For a list of what we should clean, how and when, we asked a bunch of germ experts. The biggest surprise? People with pets are six times more likely to get salmonellabased infections. The culprit is pet bowls, particularly the water bowl. We often dump it in

Q: Is there any connection between diverticulosis and an increased risk of getting colon cancer? — T.N., Wilkes-Barre, Pa. A: Diverticulosis may cause periodic painful infections of the colon that we call “diverticulitis.” It may cause you to pass lots of gas, and it may increase the risk of bleeding from one of the blood vessels that supply the colon’s wall. But rest assured that it will not increase your chance of getting colon cancer. You’re on the right track in that both colon cancer and diverticular disease have a projection of colon tissue in common. But whereas colon cancer nearly always begins from the continued growth of a precancerous colon polyp projecting into the bowel’s digestive tube, diverticulosis is the result of numerous tiny finger-like outpocketings or sacs that balloon out through the colon’s muscular wall. Colon cancer is a complex illness with multiple causes — including genetics; family history; history of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease; high fat/low fiber diet (also a risk factor for developing diverticulosis); obesity; aging; personal history of breast, ovarian or uterine cancer; and physical inactivity. Q: What is your opinion on taking D-Ribose for fibromyalgia? -- J.S., Orlando, Fla. A: D-Ribose is one of those supplements that has gained a good bit of attention recently. The idea behind it is that D-Ribose is a 5-carbon sugar (unlike 6-carbonglucose sugar) directly involved in the production of “ATP,” the fuel that every cell in your body uses for its energy production. D-Ribose doesn’t raise blood sugar; rather it’s directly converted to ATP. It can even lower blood sugar a bit. Uses for D-Ribose range from folks with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia to athletes looking to improve their exercise endurance. It may also be helpful, in theory, to those who experience muscle aches and pains as a side effect of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. While there are a whole lot of anecdotal claims about D-Ribose benefits, there just isn’t much in the way of double-blinded placebo-controlled research out there that tests it against a dummy pill or powder. I have not yet recommended it to my patients, but it does seem safe enough to recommend to select patients. The recommended dosage is 5 grams (powder dissolved in liquid) two to three times daily with meals. A few reputable brands I’ve found are Corvalen and Life Extension D-Ribose.

Two years after outgrowing a peanut allergy, Holly Sweenie finally took a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to school. “It took me a long time to get up the courage to pack one,” said Sweenie’s mom, Susan, of Canton, Mass. “I assumed allergies were something she’d always have.” Happily, allergies aren’t always life sentences. But it can be difficult to tell when children have aged out of an allergy, and if they have, whether eating those previously forbidden foods should be part of the treatment. A whopping 80 percent of children will lose their sensitivity to milk, egg, wheat and soy allergies by adulthood, said Dr. Robert Wood, director of pediatric allergy and immunology at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center and a prolific allergy researcher. Though less common, even life-threatening peanut and tree nut allergies can recede; over time, 20 percent of children will lose their sensitivity to peanuts and 10 percent will be able to tolerate tree nuts. Some children with respiratory allergies such as seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever), meanwhile, can improve and even “outgrow” the allergy as they mature, usually around puberty, said Dr. Michael Welch, codirector of the Allergy and Asthma Medical Group and Research Center in San Diego. “Often, the skin test reactivity stays the same, but the symptoms of a sizable number of children greatly improve with age,” he said. Still, allergy rates continue to rise — they’ve doubled since the 1970s — and defy explanation. Though some people have a genetic predisposition, scientists don’t know what causes allergies or why children can overcome sensitivity to certain foods but not others. Nor do they know why some children have no hay fever during their preteen years, but develop it when they hit adolescence. Treatment generally involves avoidance; the hope is that the immune system will gradually forget about the allergen. But paradoxically, “exposure may help someone with allergies become more tolerant of small amounts,” said Wood. For patients with environmental allergies, allergy pills or shots, also called immunotherapy, are used to help with desensitization. It’s thought that immunotherapy gradually retrains the immune system to completely disregard or tolerate the allergens that cause the reactions. For food allergies, however, immunotherapy isn’t quite ready for prime time. Prelim-

was diagnosed with peanut, milk and egg allergies. “The toughest part was the meal preparation and sending her off to school,” said Susan Sweenie. “As much as you try to prepare for things — like baking our own cupcakes for school parties — you never know what can happen.” Also, due to the multiple allergens, “it was tough getting protein into her, so we relied on soy milk and lots of lean meats, which is never what a kid really wants.” But one day Sweenie accidentally gave Holly a baked good containing eggs. When she had no reaction, she was retested; the results showed she had outgrown both the egg and milk allergy, which was the most severe. A year later, by the time she was 5, tests showed she had outgrown the peanut allergy too. For the first two years, Susan Sweeny was extremely nervous about giving Holly peanuts. But today, she’s no longer anxious about sending her daughter off to school with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a yogurt. “It has been a huge relief,” she said.

inary data show that giving children with milk allergies increasingly high doses of milk over time may ease or help them overcome the allergy, but researchers warn it should never be tried at home. Feeding peanuts to someone with peanut allergies, for example, can result in life-threatening anaphylactic shock. If a child has outgrown the peanut allergy, it may be a different story. Some research shows reintroducing peanuts after a child can tolerate them may help prevent a recurrence. Though the mechanism isn’t known, Wood’s work has shown children who outgrew peanut allergies and then ate peanut butter, shelled peanuts or peanut candy at least once a month had a lower risk of recurrence than those who didn’t. Still, Wood recommends that children who do eat concentrated peanut products carry epinephrine injections for at least a year after passing a food challenge, an allergy test in which the child eats small amounts of the suspected allergen in the doctor’s office.

antibodies produced by the immune system that cause allergic reactions, according to Wood’s research. These antibodies can be measured with a widely available blood test. • ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIES: Dust mites, trees, grasses, weeds and molds Onset: Age 2 or 3. Though less common, it’s possible to develop allergies later in life. Treatment: Avoidance and immunotherapy. Though injections (allergy shots) have traditionally been used, immunotherapy given as pills or drops under the tongue is also effective, according to a Cochrane Systematic Review. Who may outgrow? Those who do will likely do so around puberty. A higher proportion of boys seem to outgrow environmental allergies; it may be a hormonal influence, said Wood. In younger children, asthma, allergic rhinitis and respiratory allergies are twice as common in boys than girls. But in adolescents and adults, they’re more common in females. The majority of children outgrow bee-sting allergies; for those who don’t, allergy shots (venom immunotherapy) can reduce risks.

• FOOD ALLERGIES: Milk, eggs, soy, wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish Onset: 1 to 2 years old. Exceptions: Fish and shellfish allergies tend to emerge in adulthood. Treatment: Avoidance. Allergies are monitored with skin or blood tests. If a child appears to become less allergic over time, a food challenge can be given. This can involve making extracts with the food and pricking the skin to see how much the skin reacts. In some cases, as with egg and milk allergies, children can be given a baked version of the food. If there’s no reaction, it may be “reasonable to gradually introduce it at home,” said allergy researcher Dr. Robert Wood. Who may outgrow? About 50 percent of children outgrow milk and egg allergies by age 10; however, if a child has severe eczema, they are less likely to outgrow their milk or egg allergy, according to new research. About 50 percent of children outgrow soy and wheat allergies by age 6. Overall, 80 percent of milk, egg, soy and wheat allergies are eventually outgrown, but it seems to be happening more slowly than it used to. Children are more likely to outgrow a peanut allergy if they have low levels of peanut-specific IgE, the

to hospitalized preemies, whose weak intestinal tracts have trouble digesting formula and need the natural growth hormones in human milk; the other half goes to babiesyoungerthan1yearofagewith a prescription from a pediatrician. Typically, they are allergic to formula or mom is unable to nurse because of an illness or other reason. With the $3-an-ounce price tag, itisnotanoptionformanyfamilies. Expertsthinktheantibodiesand whitebloodcellsinhumanmilkare beneficial to growing babies. Breast-fed babies also are at a reduced risk for infections, digestive issues and chronic illnesses. For those reasons, some women are resorting to eBay or Craigslist, where, on March 21, a “healthy, 22year-oldmother”inAlamedalisted her excess breast milk for $2 an ounce. Other women turn to their communities, relying on good instincts to make informed decisions. The woman that Li received her milk from was in good health and offered her medical records, but Li said she didn’t need to see them. “As a mother of a newborn, there is a trust,” she said. “She wouldn’t give me anything at risk because she was giving it to her own baby.” Since November, Wilma Ruth Torres, of Fremont, Calif., has donated more than 1,000 ounces of her breast milk to Mothers’ Milk Bank.Pumpingistimeconsuming, she said, but well worth it knowing the milk is going to help sick babies. “That’s why I do it,” said Torres, who has an excess of milk from nursing her 9-month-old son, Samuel. “You can be a blood donor your whole life, but this is something special you can do for a short time.” Still, health professionals and other nursing advocates, including La Leche League International, cautionagainstcasualmilksharing because of potential risks to the baby, such as infection, bottle contamination, and the reality that some viruses and diseases are asymptomatic, said Diana Mahar, a pediatrician at Kaiser Permanente Pinole and a breast-feeding spokeswoman for the American Academy of Pediatrics. “It’s not a decision you should take lightly,” she said. “Even if you thinkyouknowsomeone,youcan’t be certain about their lifestyle and the medications in their breast milk let alone illicit drugs, alcohol, tobacco, herbal remedies, or the environmental contaminants they’reexposedtoattheirjobs.Personally, I wouldn’t do it.”

• Mothers’ Milk Bank: This San Jose, Calif., nonprofit is the only human milk bank in the western United States. Milk is $3 an ounce and is given to hospitalized premature infants and other babies younger than 1 year of age who show a need. MMB is accredited by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America. • Eats on Feets: This Phoenixbased nonprofit was started by a midwife who facilitates the sharing of breast milk in communities around the world using Facebook. The service is free. Donor screening, milk handling, and pasteurization are recommended but not required. • La Leche League International: The international authority on lactation and support system for breast feeding women, La Leche League recommends donor milk through licensed human milk banks. It does not support casual milk sharing or cross-nursing.

Safety aside, some people find the mere idea of milk sharing unsavory. That’s what happened to Shannon Leckey, of Walnut Creek, Calif. She had a great deal of trouble producingenoughmilktofeedherson when he was an infant. Her cousin happened to be nursing at the time and had an abundant supply of breast milk stored in her freezer, which she offered after a routine blood test to rule out any risks. Leckey’s husband, however, was not on board. “He … flat out refused to feed our son anyone else’s milk,” she said. Perhaps in the same way, milk from a milk bank may reduce some people’s trepidation. Donors are put through rigorous screenings. They must be nonsmokers in good health whose blood tests are negative for herpes, HIV and syphilis, Sakamoto said. Their milk arrives to the bank frozen and is thawed, heat-pasteurized to eliminate bacteria, lab tested, frozen and stored before shipment. That process put Stephanie Lovell-Rose, of El Cerrito, Calif., at ease when it came time to feed her premature twins. Allison and Sophiawereborneightweeksearly and weighed 3 and 4 pounds, respectively. They needed to be tubefed for a month. Lovell-Rose’s insurance covered the hospital-grade donor milk; once she brought the babies home, however, the $72 a day was her responsibility. “It is so worth it; they are really thriving,” Lovell-Rose said of her daughters, who are now five months old and weigh about 13 pounds each. “They’re a long way from the little preemies we brought home.”

cleanser, especially after washing or rinsing raw meat. Don’t forget to clean the faucet handle. 6. Refrigerator Every day, wipe down the handles, including the underside. Every week, throw out anything that’s past its date or shows age. Every 3 to 6 months, empty shelves and clean the inside with 1 ⁄4 cup baking soda in1quart warm water, then spray with a bleach solution and air-dry. Remove drawers and clean under them. Before you return the food, wipe jars to remove drips. Clean the rubber gasket inside the door to ensure a tight seal. Vacuum the coils in the back and empty and clean the drip pan if necessary. 7. Pet bowls Find a place besides the kitchen to clean turtle or frog habitats and empty pet bowls, or clean and sanitize the sink before you start washing fresh food. 8. Cutting boards Most scientists believe wooden cutting boards are safest, as long as they are kept clean, sanitized and dry. Studies have shown wood hampers bacteria growth, while bacteria thrive in scars on

plastic. Either way, keep them clean by running them through the dishwasher, or sanitize by spritzing with a weak bleach solution. Always change boards or clean with soapy water after preparing raw food — even vegetables. They grow in dirt, after all. 9. Sponges and dish towels Change dish towels daily, or more often if they’re wet or dirty. You can microwave a wet sponge for 2 minutes, but the time varies depending on the power of the microwave (and if the sponge is dry, it could catch fire). Instead, put sponges on the top rack of the dishwasher at the end of every day. 10. Cross-contamination You know you’re not supposed to put cooked food on the same surface you used for raw food. But it’s not just a problem with cutting boards. You touch all kinds of things while you’re handling raw food: Salt and pepper shakers, cabinet handles, etc. Pay attention to what you touch so you can wipe things down. Tip: It’s not necessary to rinse raw meat and chicken — it just spreads bacteria.

Are You Suffering With Pain,Tingling, or Numbness in Your Feet or Ankles?

I had neuropathy in my legs and had very little feeling to the point that I couldn’t even drive my car. I suffered for about three years. I couldn’t stand very long or do many of the regular activities that I loved to do with my wife. I found that I sat around a lot. I wanted so badly to get my life back to the way I remembered it so when I saw the ad in the paper for the Neuropathy Center I made an appointment right away. After meeting with the professional staff at the Neuropathy Center I knew that there was hope for me. After just my second treatment I felt life in my legs again. I couldn’t believe it! The Neuropathy Center has changed my life in so many ways. My experience has been terrific! Now my wife Betty and I can continue to enjoy our active life doing the things we love including Polka dancing!! I would highly recommend anyone who is suffering from Neuropathy pain to make an appointment today. Their caring staff were never to busy to answer any & all of my questions…in fact we always look forward to our visit.

Readers agree: Freebies from charities can be used without feeling guilt Dear Abby: I’m writing in response to “Feeling Guilty in North Carolina” (March 18), who feels guilty using address labels, calendars and notepads from organizations soliciting donations. Last year, for about six months, I collected all the requests for donations I received. Abby, the total was 532 requests from 119 organizations! Yes, I’m overwhelmed, and I no longer feel guilty about tossing them. I sent all of them letters requesting they delete my name from their lists. One hundred eighteen ignored my request. One asked how often I want information from them. I give the notepads and other en-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE closures to Goodwill and shred the labels. Ironically, I receive more labels now than ever before, even though I pay most bills online and email rather than write. I donate less than I ever have in the past because I feel so hounded, so in my case, it has worked against them. — Karen H. in Fort Collins, Colo. Dear Karen: Thanks for the input. Letters from readers complaining about charitable donation requests with labels arrive in my office on a daily basis, so you can imagine the mail I have received in response


to the one I printed from “Feeling Guilty.” Read on: Dear Abby: I, too, receive many “gifts” from organizations soliciting for donations. My view is, if they’re using my donation to send gifts, then they really don’t need my money. They should be using donations to help whomever or whatever it is they’re soliciting for. I don’t feel guilty in the least for using the labels, gifts, etc. I give to organizations that do not send out freebies; that’s how I direct my charitable donations. — Sabrina W., Southgate, Mich. Dear Abby: I’m a professional fundraiser and I, too, receive the pads and address labels. I do not give to every


organization that sends them, but I do use what they send. No one should feel guilty for doing so. Nonprofits buy and rent lists from companies, and they don’t expect everyone to respond. Nonprofits aren’t trying to make anyone feel guilty or trick them; they just want to do the work of the causes you love to support. — Suzanne L., Staten Island, N.Y. Dear Abby: Many solicitation letters have a small box at the bottom asking you to indicate if you would like to be taken off their mailing list. It’s worth the 44 cents to return it. Some areas recycle junk mail. After removing the address labels, the rest can be put in the recycling bin with newspapers. Note pads, greet-

ing cards and calendar gifts could be donated to a military personnel drive, thrift store, nursing home or community center. — Mary F., Stuart, Fla. Dear Abby: We contacted the post office and were instructed not to open the envelope, to write “Refused — Return to Sender” on the front and put it back in the mailbox. — Sandra M., Mukwonago, Wis. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be in a mischievous mood, and you’ll have an audience egging you on. This question may cross your mind: Is the world ready for your kind of fun? TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The messenger is always in a precarious position. When the news is bad, he gets blamed. And when it’s good, he gets hounded for more. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Tell people how to handle you. You’re a star because of the thing you’re very good at. Let the others know that you want to focus there, because you won’t be in the mood to take on anything else. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be an asset to your group in hectic times. When you need to, you can tap into that relaxed, laissezfaire part of your personality. The more excited things get the calmer you become. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may become genuinely mad about something, but be careful not to lose your composure publicly. Blow off steam in private. Your anger will die down almost as fast as it comes up, and all will be quickly forgotten. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you keep up the optimism over the next three days, things will start to go very well for you. You’ll pull off a few miracles in a row. Not only will you succeed magnificently, but you’ll help those around you to succeed, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You know how to tell the truth in a way that is fair and constructive for all involved. Your honesty

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

earns you a place of respect in the hearts, minds and actions of your peers. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be presenting yourself to people who are distracted, to say the least. Assume that you must capture their attention before you impart anything important. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Simplicity is an ideal that is usually much more difficult to attain than it looks. Your ability to sense what matters and stay on track will be in high demand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Anyone can describe a problem. You take it two steps further, proposing a solution and gaining the cooperation of anyone connected to that solution. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your methods, though not exactly madcap, are somewhat contrary to the conventional approach. This is what earns you fans and friends today, so go with those offbeat instincts. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though you’re all for working smart instead of hard, sometimes there’s just no getting around it. Roll up your sleeves and prepare to get dirty. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 26). Exercise improves your life — start a new regime. In the next five weeks, a special relationship thrives. June and July will focus on balancing work and pleasure. You’ll find more effective ways of supporting your hobbies and leisure time. Finances improve with higher education. Virgo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 21, 25, 39 and 15.
