20 years of special kids Challenger league reunion Saturday By BILL O’BOYLE

PITTSTON TWP. – During the first year of Challenger Little League in 1991, a game was played at the Lackawanna County Stadium – home of the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Red Barons at the time. Andy Ashby, a former member of the Red Barons, had been promoted and was a pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies of the National League. Ashby was at the game and was standing in the third base dugout when a young member of the Challen-

Christina Capitano, a brown-eyed beauty who had difficulty ambulating, was told by league president Fred DeSanto to walk over to the third base side and ask Ashby for his autograph. So she did.

Gun buyer says she was manipulated Emily Gross supplied the firearm used to kill a state trooper, prosecutors say. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

PHILADELPHIA – The woman who supplied the gun that was used to kill state Trooper Joshua Miller of Pittston Township says she was manipulated into purchasing the weapon and had no idea it would be used to commit a crime.

In an emotional letter to a federal judge, 25-year-old Emily Gross also expresses extreme reGross morse, saying she has been left “with an emptiness I cannot begin to describe” as she reflects on the harm her actions caused. “Not a day goes by that I do not regret that decision. I never could have imagined that this error in judgment could have led

to such tragic events,” Gross says in an April 15 letter to U.S. District Judge Darnell Jones. “My heart aches for those whose lives have been affected by my actions, especially Trooper Joshua Miller and his family. I see his children growing up without a father. I see Mrs. Miller as a widow, long before anyone could have imagined.” Gross, of Westfield, N.J., is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday in federal court in PhilaSee GUN, Page 6A

Making a case for a severance tax on natural gas in Pennsylvania, a research and policy center on Monday released a report showing that natural gas drillers in the state pay very little in state and local taxes, despite industry claims to the contrary. Many drillers – including nine of the top 10 permit holders in the Marcellus Shale – structure their businesses as limited liability companies (LLCs) or limited partnerships (LPs). This allows them to avoid the corporate net income tax altogether and pay the much lower personal income tax on company profits, according to a report by the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center. Only 15 percent of the 783 companies to file state corporate net income tax returns owed any tax, netting the state $17.8 million. About half of the companies that had to file tax returns for capital stock and franchise tax had to pay any tax, which totaled $8 million. The state collected another $13 million in personal income taxes from drillers, bringing the grand total to $38.8 million that year, the report states. In 2009, oil and gas drillers in Louisiana, Texas and West Virginia – states that have severance taxes – paid considerably more in state and local taxes

Area’s farmers fear a harvest of trouble

Wet weather is making planting difficult and threatening to delay crops. By STEVE MOCARSKY

The above-average rainfall this month is causing problems for farmers across Pennsylvania, forcing them to delay planting of grains, fruits and vegetables. As of Monday, rainfall recorded at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport was 48 percent higher than normal and 145 percent higher than rainfall last April, according to figures from the National Weather Service. In fact, it rained here 17 of the first 25 days in April. “The rain is keeping us out of the fields. It’s just too wet,” said Harold Golomb, owner of Golomb’s Farm and Greenhouse in Plains Township. Right now, the soil would pack too hard to allow for proper crop growth and seed germination if seeds were planted, he said.


Harold Golomb, of Golomb Farm in Plains Township, is concerned about wet weather.

Donna Grey, Penn State Extension educator, said planting in wet weather would cause the soil to clump and harden, which could hurt seedlings as they try to come up, and it’s also not good See FARMS, Page 7A

Strong area storms cause damage Tuesday night’s thunderstorm caused damages around the Wyoming Valley and the Back Mountain. Beginning about 10 p.m. in Wilkes-Barre, the storm dropped heavy rain and hail accompanied by high winds.

Luzerne County Judge David Lupas on one count each of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. Police say on Aug. 1, Klouchinsky told them she was attacked inside a South River Street house. She said she was hit on the back of the head with an object and choked repeatedly between July 31 and Aug. 1 while disrobed and bound hand and foot. “I fear for myself and the other people around you,” Collen Klouchinsky told Bush after his sentencing.

Bush pleaded guilty to the charges in March and was represented by attorney Christopher O’Donnell. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Albert Yacoub. Bush must undergo mental health and drug and alcohol evaluations and must stay away from Klouchinsky. He was given credit for time already served from August 2010 to Tuesday. Bush faced a maximum of 20 years in prison on the aggravated assault charge and a maximum of

two years on the reckless endangerment charge. According to court papers, police went to the home and found blood on the sidewalk and porch, and blood spatter in the kitchen. Police then searched and found a black metal bar with suspected blood on it. Police were later contacted by a woman, identified as Maureen Bush, who said that on Aug. 1 she went to the River Street apartment looking for her husband, David Bush, and found him and Klouchinsky in the kitchen.

Court records say Maureen Bush is the property manager while David Bush is the maintenance man for the property. Maureen Bush said she helped the woman escape and that her husband yelled at her, “I was going to kill her. You ruined it!” according to court papers. Police said Klouchinsky suffered a fractured lumbar bone (lower back vertebrae), a lost tooth, lacerations and bruises, and heavy bleeding from her scalp and hand.

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A Hazleton man was sentenced Tuesday to nine to 18 months in county prison on three child pornography-related charges. Alexandro Zgrodek, 31, of Broad Street, was sentenced on two counts of child pornography and one count of unlawful contact with a minor by Luzerne County Judge David Lupas. Lupas said Zgrodek must register his address under Megan’s Law for his entire life and does not meet the criteria of a sexually violent predator after an evaluation by the state Sexual Offender’s Assessment Board. He pleaded guilty to the charges in January. According to court papers, on June 24, 2010, Zgrodek allegedly sent several inappropriate cell phone photos to a 15-year-old girl for a period of time. WILKES-BARRE – A Hazleton man found guilty of shooting and killing another man outside a Hazleton nightclub in August 2009 and sentenced to 2½ to 5 years in state prison said in court papers filed Tuesday he is appealing his prison sentence because prosecutors did not present evidence to support an involuntary manslaughter conviction. Johan Pujols, 24, filed the court papers through his attorney, Joseph Sklarosky, Sr. Pujols did not act recklessly or grossly negligent, as the definition of the involuntary manslaughter charge says, and a judge erred in sentencing Pujols to the maximum because of the lack of evidence, the papers say. Pujols was charged in the shooting death of Yuery Manuel Colon outside the Club 570 on Stockton RoadSklarosky appealed the sentence just a few hours after it was handed down.

LOCAL Suspect gets a tongue lashing

Judge Cosgrove rejects slaying suspect Robert G. Zola’s plea for a change in attorneys. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A Mountain Top man who recently pleaded guilty to the stabbing death of his girlfriend was issued a warning Tuesday by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Cosgrove. “Stop writing me. Stop asking me. You’re not going to decide this court’s schedule. Your counsel is not being

removed,” Joseph Cosgrove said. Cosgrove issued the warning to homicide suspect Robert George Zola, who last week entered a guilty plea to a thirdZola degree murder charge in the 2009 death of 35-yearold Rosemarie Cave. One day later, Zola, in a hand-written letter, asked that he be permitted to withdraw his guilty plea and stand trial, while asking for a fourth time to be given new attorneys.

Man blames accident for addiction to child porn

Zola said in his court papers that he was only notified of the plea agreement 15 minutes before proceedings last week, and that he wasn’t given a psychiatric report by his attorneys Joseph Yeager and Ferris Webby. He also said he wants new attorneys. “What about your plea wasn’t knowing and voluntary,” Cosgrove asked Zola, probing Zola on what he felt made his plea different if he had seen the psychiatric report long before the plea. After a period of silence from Zola, Cosgrove said had Zola asked him for time to look at the report, he would

have allowed it, and that Zola answered all of his extensive questions, leaving Cosgrove to believe the plea was intelligently made. Yeager and Webby said they had discussed at length both the psychiatric report and guilty plea before last week’s court appearance and that there is no legal basis for Zola to say his plea wasn’t knowing and voluntary. “He knew exactly what was in that report,” Yeager said. “He knew the strategy. He knew the pros and cons. See SOLA, Page 4A

Lawyer exits Powell defense Robert Powell says he has no insurance coverage for legal help in “kids for cash” case.


SCRANTON – Citing a lack of insurance coverage, an attorney who had been representing Robert Powell in the “kids for cash” lawsuits has asked a federal judge to allow him to withdraw from the case based on Powell’s inability to pay his firm.

Attorney Mark Sheppard of Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads of Philadelphia filed a motion on Tuesday after being advised by PoPowell well that he no longer has insurance coverage to pay legal fees. Powell and his firm, the Powell Law Group, are defendants in several federal lawsuits filed by juveniles who allege they were improperly incarcerat-

ed in two juvenile detention centers he formerly co-owned. The allegations in each suit vary, but are based on the general premise that Powell conspired with former judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan to improperly jail juveniles to enhance his profits. Over the past two years, several insurance companies have succeeded in obtaining court orders that absolve them from defending Powell or paying any damages should he be See POWELL, Page 4A

Closed St. Joseph’s to reopen as Holy Family students move

Bishop Joseph Bambera meets with parents at Holy Family Academy in Hazleton. He announced a plan to move students and faculty from Holy Family Academy to St. Joseph’s School in Hazleton. The current school, formerly Bishop Hafey High School, was found to be too large.



Did she and her other classmates mind the move? They shrugged, a few said no, and most went about playing Pokemon on hand-held game sets or admiring paper dioramas of Moses parting the Red Sea, an epic image from the Old Testament. Lessthan15minuteslater,DeborahSy-

HAZLE TWP. – A young female student hanging out with some classmates in the hallway of Holy Family Academy Tuesday night announced it 45 minutes before Diocese of Scranton Bishop Joseph Bambera made the news public. “We’re going to St. Joseph’s,” she said with a slight smile. See MOVE, Page 4A

The state Superior Court has upheld a Luzerne County judge’s ruling that declared a former Butler Township man to be a sexually violent predator. Phillip Sizemore, 42, was sentenced in May 2010 to 12 to 24 years in state prison for sexually abusing two girls over an eight-year period. Luzerne County Judge David Lupas also determined that Sizemore fit the profile of a sexually violent predator based on the testimony of Paul Burst, a psychologist with the state’s Sexual Offender Assessment Board. Burst determined that Sizemore was a pedophile based on his prolonged involvement with the victims and efforts he took to “groom” them to make them believe his abuse of them was normal. HARRISBURG

peck emerged early from a meeting Bambera convened with about 200 parents, teachers and students in the elementary school and confirmed the move. She took it as a positive for her 5-year-old daughter Brianna, a kindergarten student at Holy Family. “It will still be the same teachers, the same students, the same way it was,” Sypeck said. Asked if she was worried about moving, Brianna smiled shyly, turned a head to her mother’s leg and said “a little.” While the media were excluded from the meeting, parents could be heard giving long applause to Bambera, who invited media in to a nearby school library as parents left the auditorium. Bambera noted the current location for Holy Family – the former Bishop Hafey High School -- had a capacity of more than 800, while the enrollment was about 250. Holy Family has enough students to sustain itself, he said, but a lot of money was being wasted in heat and maintenance for largely un-

used sections. The former St. Joseph’s school is older and on a smaller campus, but could still hold about 400 students, leaving room for growth. Though the building was closed as a school in a massive restructuring in 2007 under former Bishop Joseph Martino, Bambera said it has been used frequently by the church across the street for religious classes and parish events, and will need only cosmetic changes to be ready for use this fall. A transition team is already in place to begin the work. Bambera said several parties have expressed interest in purchasing the current Holy Family building, but declined to give further information. Hazleton Area School District – struggling for years with booming enrollment, had expressed interest in the past. The move for Holy Family had been discussed publicly 15 days ago when Bambera announced the closing of two schools each in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties, but the decision of where it was moved remained up in the air until Tuesday night. Bambera said he believed the families took the news well because “I think our people are beginning to realize it’s far more important” to keep the re-

ligious school system intact than to keep certain buildings open. Bambera noted that, “less than six days” after announcing the closings of four schools earlier this month, 660 of the 750 students enrolled at those schools had signed up to attend neighboring schools next year. He said the diocese is “absolutely committed” to keep a school in the Hazleton Area. The current and future locations for Holy Family are less than two miles apart. Tuesday’s reaction by the crowd was in stark contrast to the night students and parents gathered in the same auditorium to watch a televised press conference in 2007 at which Martino announced the

closing of Bishop Hafey. Live news cameras caught audience members screaming and crying. Sypeck said her son was a 10thgrade student at Bishop Hafey at the time. He tried to attend Marian Catholic High School near Tamaqua, but found the trip too long and finished his study at Hazleton Area High School, across the street from Holy Family. The Rev. Michael Piccola, the pastor of the church across the street from the St. Joseph School building, attended Bambera’s meeting Tuesday and said he and his parishioners are “thrilled” it will be an active school again. The church had been known as St. Joseph’s for decades, and originally sponsored the school that will soon reopen. Under massive restructuring of diocesan churches begun in 2009 under Martino, St. Joseph’s church merged with others that closed, and the building took on the new name of SS. Cyril and Methodius Parish. Noting he had been a former teacher and high school principal at Bishop O’Reilly High School in Kingston – also closed and converted to an elementary school – Piccola said he was grateful for Bambera’s commitment to keep a diocesan school in Hazleton.

policies. The latest ruling, issued on March 31, freed insurance carrier Alea London from the cases. As a result of that ruling and others, no insurer is currently defending Powell, Sheppard says in the motion. Powell has advised Sheppard he does not have the personal resources to

pay for the defense. Sheppard’s motion notes that Powell was aware that Sheppard’s firm would withdraw from the case should insurance coverage be denied. He has consented to the firm’s request to withdrawal. The motion does not indicate whether Powell will seek to obtain other coun-

sel or opt to defend the cases himself. Sheppard said he has also advised law firms that are representing the juveniles of his withdrawal. Those whom he has been able to contact thus far have consented to his motion. He is still awaiting replies from several other firms.

or three years. He would use certain key words to search for images of children engaged in sex acts, and was interested in videos and images of 13-yearold girls. Bell told investigators, he “accidentally downloaded child pornography and became addicted to it,” the criminal complaint says. He claimed he tried to stop by deleting the videos and images from his computer. A forensic examination of his computer tower revealed 48 videos and three images of children engaged in sex acts, according to the criminal complaint. Pierantoni ordered Bell not to access the Internet and to disconnect service to his house. The district judge also ordered him not to have any unsupervised contact with children. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on May 25 before Pierantoni.

There were no surprises.” But, Zola felt differently. “Why don’t you raise your right hand and tell the truth,” Zola told Yeager. Cosgrove responded by telling Zola to stay quiet and let Yeager speak and to hold back any outbursts. Webby said the attorneys permitted Zola to ask them questions, while Yeager said the only questions Zola had were about restitution payments. “I believe you answered the questions truthfully,” Cosgrove said. Cosgrove said he would give attorneys and Zola until 1 p.m. today to come to a decision – to either proceed with the plea or to provide evidence to Cosgrove as to why Zola should be permitted to withdraw his plea. “They are ordered to represent you. That’s the last word on the representation of these lawyers,” Cosgrove said. Assistant District Attorney Chester Dudick said he sees no basis for Zola to be permitted to withdraw his guilty plea.

VILONIA, Ark. — A day after a series of powerful storms in Arkansas killed 10 people in flooding and a tornado that twisted a tractor-trailer like a wrung dish rag, residents in several states braced Tuesday for a second straight night of violent weather as forecasters again called for twisters to hammer the region. The National Weather Service issued a high risk warning for severe weather in a stretch extending from northeast of Memphis to just northeast of Dallas and covering a large swath of Arkansas. It last issued such a warning on April 16, when dozens of tornadoes hit North Carolina and killed 21 people. The forecast came as communities in much of the region struggled with flooding and the aftermath of tornadoes

that destroyed homes and businesses. In Arkansas, a tornado smashed Vilonia, just north of Little Rock, on Monday night, ripping the roof off the grocery store, flattening homes and tossing vehicles into the air. Four people died in less-than-sturdy structures in the Black Oak Subdivision of Vilonia. Two were a couple from Greenbrier, David and Katherine Talley, who sought shelter in a detached trailer from a big-rig truck. Faulkner County spokesman Stephan Hawks said the Talleys climbed into the trailer rather than endure the storm in their car. The trailer was blown into a pond, where their bodies were found. Another victim was Charles Mitchell, 55, who died in his mobile home.

tries for the embattled president to step down, possibly defusing months of deadly government protests across this impoverished Arab nation. President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has ruled for 32 years, has already agreed to the proposal that would create a national unity government and have him transfer power to his vice president within 30 days of the deal being signed. In exchange, Saleh and his family would received immunity from prosecution. But the proposal, put forward by the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council, appears to have opened a serious rift between opposition parties and the hundreds of thousands of protesters who have taken to the streets daily since February to demand Saleh’s immediate resignation.

GIs’ future presence mulled

Iraq’s prime minister said Tuesday that his country does not need U.S. forces to protect its internal security, but acknowledged that the country still does not have the money or training to protect its borders. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s comments come as the country is struggling to decide whether to ask American troops to stay past their expected Dec. 31 departure date. It’s a politically toxic question for the Iraqi leader in a country where many people are nervous about a future without U.S. troops yet its politically unpalatable to ask the Americans to stay longer. “The internal security situation does not need this,” he said. “As for the external defense of Iraq’s sovereignty, then Iraq still suffers from shortages.” However the Iraqi leader emphasized that he does not see any regional threats to Iraq’s security. Many American proponents of keeping U.S. forces in Iraq point to the threat posed by neighboring Iran. BOCA RATON, FLA.

Centenarian numbers rising

America’s population of centenarians — already the largest in the world — has roughly doubled in the past 20 years to around 72,000 and is projected to at least double again by 2020, perhaps even increase seven-fold, according to the Census Bureau. The Census Bureau estimates there were 71,991 centenarians as of Dec. 1, up from 37,306 two decades earlier. While predicting longevity and population growth is difficult, the census’ low-end estimate for 2050 is 265,000 centenarians; its highest projection puts the number at 4.2 million.

More arrests reported in Syria Human rights group says dozens detained. Heavy gunfire continues in Daraa, where revolt began.

By BASSEM MROUE and DIAA HADID Associated Press

Residents of the southern Syrian city of Daraa braved sniper fire Tuesday to pull the bullet-riddled bodies of the dead from the streets and hide them from security forces, a day after a brutal government crackdown on the popular revolt against President Bashar Assad, witnesses said.

As heavy gunfire reverberated through Daraa, a Syrian human rights group said authorities detained dozens of people across the country, mainly in several Damascus suburbs, including the town of Douma and in the northern coastal city of Jableh. A relentless crackdown since midMarch has killed more than 400 people across Syria, with 120 dead during the weekend, rights groups said. That has only emboldened protesters who started their revolt with calls for modest reforms but are now increasingly demanding Assad’s downfall. The Syrian army, backed by tanks and snipers, killed at least 22 people in a

raid launched before dawn Monday on Daraa, where the uprising began more than a month ago. Security forces also conducted raids in Douma and Jableh. World leaders expressed concern at the mounting bloodshed, with the United States starting to draw up sanctions against Assad, diplomats hoping to send a strong signal to Damascus from the United Nations, and the prime minister of neighboring Turkey telephoning the Syrian leader to urge restraint. The assault on Daraa appeared to be part of new strategy of crippling, preemptive action against any opposition to Assad, rather than reacting to demonstrations.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi has suffered military setbacks in recent days in western Libya, a sign that his grip might be slipping in the very region he needs to cling to power. His loyalists were driven out of the city of Misrata, a key rebel stronghold in Gadhafi-controlled territory. A NATO airstrike turned parts of his Tripoli headquarters into smoldering rubble. And rebel fighters seized a border crossing, breaking open a supply line to besieged rebel towns in a remote western mountain area. Front lines have shifted repeatedly in Hundreds of two months of coalition airfighting, and strikes during the poorly the past five trained, illequipped re- weeks have bels have given steadily erodno evidence ed Gadhafi’s that they could defeat Gadhafi fighting power on the battlefield. The Libyan leader has deep pockets, including several billion dollars in gold reserves, that could keep him afloat for months. And his forces continue to bombard Misrata from afar, unleashing a fierce barrage Tuesday against the port area — the city’s only lifeline to the world. Yet Gadhafi appears increasingly on the defensive. And some see the past week as a turning point in the fighting, citing mounting military and political pressure on Gadhafi. Hundreds of coalition airstrikes during the past five weeks have steadily eroded his fighting power. NATO says it destroyed one-third of his military equipment, pinned down troops and cut off supply lines.

Census: For 1st time, women top men in both bachelor’s, advanced degrees

A woman at a recent job fair in New York talks to an employer. For the first time, American women have passed men in gaining advanced college degrees as well as bachelor’s degrees.

By HOPE YEN Associated Press


WASHINGTON — For the first time, American women have passed men in gaining advanced college degrees as well as bachelor’s degrees, part of a trend that is helping redefine who goes off to work and who stays home with the kids. CensusfiguresreleasedTuesdayhighlight the latest education milestone for women, who began to exceed men in college enrollment in the early 1980s. The findings come amid record shares of women in the workplace and a steady de-

cline in stay-at-home mothers. Among adults 25 and older, 10.6 million U.S. women have master’s degrees or higher, compared to10.5 million men. Measured by shares, about 10.2 percent of women have advanced degrees compared to 10.9 percent of men. When it comes to finishing college, roughly 20.1million women have bachelor’s degrees, compared to nearly 18.7 million men — a gap of more than 1.4 million that has remained steady in recent years. Women first passed men in bachelor’s degrees in 1996.

delphia for providing a false address on a form that is required to purchase a firearm. Gross has admitted that on May 29, 2009 she illegally utilized the Easton address of her boyfriend, Daniel Autenrieth, to purchase a 9 mm pistol from the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hamburg. Nine days later, Autenrieth used the handgun to kidnap his 9-year-old son from his estranged wife and lead police on a high speed chase that ended near Tobyhanna. Miller, of Pittston Township, was fatally shot and another trooper, Robert Lombardo of Pittston, was wounded as they attempted to retrieve the boy from the vehicle. Autenrieth was also killed. Document filed Gross’ letter, as well as numerous others written by friends and family members, were included in a pre-sentence memorandum her attorney, Michael Mustokoff of Philadelphia, filed on her behalf. Federal sentencing guidelines call for a sentence of six to 12 months in prison.

Brown heard the testimony from the witnesses, Sharon Rodney and her stepfather Marc Refice, at a special hearing held Jan. 13. Rodney claimed the SUV that first struck Shaughnessy had turned onto Wyoming Avenue from Pierce Street, contradict-

Gross pleadMiller ed guilty in February to providing false information on the firearms form after federal prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of aiding and abetting a prohibited person from possessing a firearm. Joshua Miller’s wife, Angela, as well as the Pennsylvania State Police Troopers Association, publicly opposed the plea deal. In his memorandum, Mustokoff said prosecutors had little choice but to drop the abetting charge as there was no evidence to suggest that Gross knew Autenrieth was contemplating his crimes. While acknowledging Gross must take responsibility for her actions, Mustokoff asks Jones to consider Gross’ background and the circumstances surrounding the case. Mustokoff describes Gross as a kindhearted, selfless person who was always looking to help others. That desire to please others allowed her to be easily manipulated by people, particularly boyfriends, throughout her life, he said. In this case, Autenrieth persuaded Gross to change the address on her car insurance and

In his opinion, Brown ruled prosecutors established a case

driver’s license to his. That same day, he convinced her to purchase the gun under the premise he was going to teach her how to shoot. Gross, who never owned a gun, listed Autenrieth’s address on the form, even though she knew she didn’t currently live there, under the belief she would soon be moving in, Mustokoff said. In her letter, Gross says she was “tricked” by Autenrieth, who deceived her into believing “that the future I wanted with him was something he wanted as well.” “He used my trust in him to convince me to do something that I never should have done,” Gross says. Gross stresses she is not trying to avoid blame, but wants the judge and Miller family to understand the circumstances surrounding her actions. “I still have trouble believing what happened,” Gross says. “That I could have played any role in the long chain of events that led to this tragedy is a nightmare that repeats itself. It is so important for me that the Millers and your honor know it never occurred to me that when I bought that gun such a tragedy might result.” Angela Miller did not immediately return a phone message Tuesday seeking comment regarding Gross’ statements.

against Panowicz relying upon her alleged statement to investigators about the accident. The judge determined prosecutors did not establish a third-degree felony case, ruling the initial impact with Shaughnessy did not “cause death or serious bodily injury.” Rodney and Refice testified at the January hearing that Shaughnessy was begging for help after being struck by the first vehicle, but did not move after being struck by the second and third vehicle. Russin could not be immediately reached for comment Tuesday afternoon. It could not be determined if prosecutors will appeal Brown’s opinion.

Federal sentencing guidelines call for a sentence of six to 12 months in prison. But the memorandum urges Jones to accept an agreement between the defense and U.S. Attorney’s Office that recommends a sentence of five years probation, with the first year to be served on home confinement. Prosecutor responds In a separate memorandum, Assistant U.S. Attorney Seth Weber said the government agrees there is no evidence Gross knew of Autenrieth’s intentions. She nonetheless must be held accountable for her role in the shootings of Miller and Lombardo. “Although the defendant’s crime, on its face, is not a violent crime, the consequences of the conduct which the defendant directly set in motion were both violent and deadly,” Weber says. “One need only read the newspapers today to understand the devastating impact which gun crimes of this type can have upon society,” he later continues. “When it comes to guns, the law should hold people accountable for their direct actions and the consequences that flow from those actions.”

Young critics give Irem Shrine Circus thumbs up Performances continue the rest of the week at the 109th Field Artillery Armory. R E V I E W By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent


A tiger jumps through a flaming hoop during the cats’ show during a performance on Monday.

With their tails gracefully up in the air, the large cats leaped over hurdles, while the male lion decided to go under the hurdle…

When Eloise the elephant stepped into the center ring and showed off her uncanny rhythmic coordination, many people were jubilant. Little Makayla was all smiles as the elephant danced around the ring wearing a black and silver feathery head piece and blanket. As Eloise moved, even

her tail seemed to keep the tempo. As Eloise prepared to depart from the ring, she held a white handkerchief in her trunk and waved good-bye to a cheering crowd. The evening ended with a bang as a father and daughter duo drove in a caged dome on their dirt bikes. Mirowski said they always have enjoyed the circus and she is very supportive of the Shriners and all they do for children. “We come every year,” she said. “We always have enjoyed the performances.”

Eloise the elephant performs to the delight of circus-goers during a show on Monday.

WILKES-BARRE – The 62nd annual Irem Shrine Circus received a collective thumbs up on its Tuesday night performance by critics, including Makayla Rutchauskas, 6, and her twin cousins Davida and Destina Kotsur-Brannigan, 5, all from Plains Township. The Hamid Circus is in town all week at the 109th Field Artillery Armory with shows scheduled for 10 a.m. and 7:15 p.m. today through Friday and 1:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. on Saturday. Larry the Clown kicked off the show with some balancing routines, including balancing a 7-foot ladder on his chin. The audience members, still laughing, turned their attention to the center ring to be wowed by animal trainer Vincent Von Duke and his three tigers and one white Bengal tiger plus a male and female lion. With their tails gracefully up in the air, the large cats leaped over hurdles, while the male lion decided to go under the hurdle, receiving laughter from the crowd. The tigers finished the act by

jumping through a ring of fire. But the lions were not to be outdone; as the female lion walked past the male, she stopped to give him an affectionate nuzzle. Lisa Manoski from Mountain Top said her19-month-old daughter, Mia, did not take her eyes off the cats. “She seemed to really like them,” she said. The whole two-hour show moved swiftly. Thirteen-year-old Miss Mercedes, decked out in pink, and her well-manicured pony, doing an equestrian exhibition, had many little girls wishing to trade places. Makayla pointed and told her mom, Rochelle Mirowski, she wanted a pony just like that one. While Katelynn, 6, and her sister, Sabrina Gray, 7, of Mountain Top, agreed the fancy pony was a favorite. Thrills were dished out too as the three Murcias exhibited their skills on the tightrope. They walked, did a somersault, and jumped over each other while precariously balancing on the high wire with no net underneath. The high-flying Pages, a sixmember group performing death defying mid-air flips and somersaults on the trapeze, had the large crowd staring upwards while holding their breaths.





Corbett: No forced pooling By MARC LEVY Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Gov. Tom Corbett told a crowd from the region’s booming natural gas industry Tuesday that Pennsylvania needs its help to climb out of the recession, but he also warned that he would aggressively enforce environmental laws and that he opposes a controversial change in law sought by drilling companies. "Forced pooling" is tantamount to private eminent domain, and he doesn’t agree with it, Corbett told the seminar crowd in suburban Pittsburgh, which is a fast becoming a hub for multinational energy companies exploring the Marcellus and Utica shales beneath Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. "I’m sure there’s many here, many here that would like to see" forced pooling for Marcellus Shale gas, he said. And then he told what he called "maybe a dirty little secret" about companies that say they would be willing to pay a severance tax that is the subject of much debate in the state Legislature. "They never add the caveat that I know that many of the companies that have gone to Harrisburg have said, ’Yeah, we’ll take the tax if we get certain things in regulation, including the forced pooling,’" Corbett said. Forced pooling is on the books in some other states and can be used to force holdout landowners to lease their below-ground gas rights under certain conditions. The issue, at the top of the indus-

try’s wish list since at least last year, has gained little traction in the Legislature. Companies say it would help Corbett limit the number of roads and wells built to extract gas. Corbett also opposes a severance tax on gas extracted from the Marcellus Shale, the nation’s largest-known gas reservoir. On Tuesday, he reiterated his stance against it, and tried to underscore the urgency of competing for the industry’s money and equipment. The Marcellus Shale beneath Pennsylvania is one of six natural gas deposits vying to offer the best return on investment for energy companies, he said. "I need, we need, Pennsylvania needs the jobs today to get out of this recession," he said. Pennsylvania is the nation’s largest natural-gas producing state that does not tax the activity. Corbett, who said the media would call Tuesday’s crowd of several hundred a "friendly audience," accepted nearly $1 million in donations to his gubernatorial campaign from people in the natural gas industry. However, he closed his 35-minute speech by promising to vigorously enforce environmental laws and saying he will use his power to grant drilling permits to puni-

sh companies, if necessary. "I know how to get the attention of your CEOs, whether they be here in Pennsylvania or in Oklahoma or in Texas or in Louisiana, and that’s through the permit," Corbett said. He spoke a week after he asked natural gas drillers to stop one of their most troubling environmental practices: taking polluted wastewater from gas wells to riverside treatment plants that aren’t equipped to remove all the contaminants. The audience heard numerous warnings about losing the public relations battle over the industry’s environmental record and the possibility of stronger regulations, both on the federal level and in states from Texas to West Virginia. Drawing gas from shale deep underground is being touted by the industry as a major new source of cheap, homegrown energy, thanks to the recent combination high-volume hydraulic fracturing and the new technique of horizontal drilling. Nearly 3,000 wells have been drilled in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale. However, hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has sparked concern from some environmental groups and public officials, particularly as people in drilling communities in Texas, Pennsylvania and elsewhere come forward with tales of contaminated air and well water. It also has drawn scrutiny from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

than they did in Pennsylvania. Drillers paid $44 million in Pennsylvania sales and business taxes, while, in Texas, they paid $8.8 billion in drilling, property, sales and corporate taxes, according to the report. “Texas has about 34 times as much oil and gas drilling as Pennsylvania, but took in 200 times as much in taxes from the industry,” said Sharon Ward, center director. “Clearly, drillers are getting big tax breaks in Pennsylvania that they don’t enjoy anywhere else.” The report seems to debunk a statement by former Gov. Tom Ridge, now a board member of the natural gas industry’s Marcellus Shale Coalition, who said the industry “helped the state generate more than $1 billion in revenue to state and local governments.” But Elizabeth Brassell, spokeswoman for the state Department of Revenue, said the report is “a narrow look at old tax data” and used “less than ideal research methodology.”

perts, Marcellus production generated nearly $785 million in tax revenues through 2010 in Pennsylvania while helping to create more than 88,000 new jobs. “Further, a more recent Penn State analysis clearly demonstrates that state sales tax revenues, realty transfer tax collections, as well as overall tax income continue to soar in Marcellus producing counties,” Windle said, adding that tax income increased 325.3 percent in counties with 10 or more wells. Steve Miskin, press secretary for House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny, said the industry is creating “good-paying” jobs, the companies and employees are paying taxes and the companies are fixing roads and making other improvements. State Sen. John Yudichak, DPlymouth Township, on the other hand, supports a severance tax. In March, he introduced Senate Bill 905, which would evenly distribute severance tax revenue between the Commonwealth Financing Authority for water supply, wastewater treatment, stormwater and flood control projects; the Environmental Stewardship Fund; and local governments directly affected by natural gas drilling.

Brassell said the report was based on data the department provided a year ago, and the department has since identified better research methodologies. Brassell said some of the information in the report is either “blatantly wrong or misrepresented.” For example, the assertion that only $13 million was paid by the industry in personal income taxes must be based on “faulty information,” she said, “because we can’t get that figure anywhere.” In response to the claim that many companies structure as LLCs to avoid paying corporate taxes, Brassell said the department is finding “a number of cases” in which LLCs are owned by corporations rather than individuals and, in those cases, the corporations are paying “substantial” income taxes. “In looking at it, state taxes paid by the industry so far in 2011 are already nearly exceeding what the industry has paid in all of 2010 and we’re totaling collections in the hundreds of millions annually rather than the tens of millions,” Brassell said. Travis Windle, spokesman for the Marcellus Shale Coalition, said that according to independent Penn State University ex-

W-B’s final bath salts ban near An emergency ordinance will soon be replaced in the city by a permanent one. By BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – City Council will vote Thursday on the second reading of an ordinance that will ban the sale of bath salts in the city, superseding an emergency ordinance passed on April 14. At its work session Tuesday, council reviewed the ordinance, noting that the The penalties penalties outlined in the outlined in emergency verthe ordinance sion will not call for a fine change.

after passage Thursday night. Vinsko said council passed the emergency ordinance to allow city police to begin en-

forcement. The penalties outlined in the ordinance call for a fine up to $500 and/or incarceration of up to 30 days, upon conviction. In other business, council: • Will vote on a resolution to allow PennDOT to remove railroad crossings along Pennsylvania and Conyngham avenues at

no cost to the city. • Will consider a resolution to authorize city officials to coordinate with Pennoni Associates and CP Rail Corp. for the replacement of the existing railroad crossing on North Main Street near the Plains Township border at no cost to the city. • Consider granting permission to Susquehanna River Adventures, LLC, to operate riverrelated services, such as kayak rentals, in Nesbitt Park. • Vote on a resolution that would grant approval to Donna N. Yonkondy, owner of Center

City Café, to install a sign at 2 Public Square. • Consider adopting an ordinance on second reading regarding council’s rules and procedures. At its last meeting, council voted to amend an ordinance that limits a resident’s comments to 5 minutes. The amendment states no one can transfer unused time to anyone else. Last month, council denied Bob Kadluboski’s request for 5 minutes for each of four topics he hoped to discuss.

Apple plays iSpy without consent


URNS OUT YOU’RE not being paranoid if you suspect your iPhone and your iPad are spying on you. According to a report delivered at a technology conference recently, Apple Computer’s two most popular products are recording the movements and accumulated data of customers. Apple hasn’t said what it plans to do with the data yet. Still, Apple assures all concerned that it doesn’t have remote access to the information, but that isn’t the point. Apple is gathering information and storing it on unencrypted files without the consent of its customers. To put this into some perspective: Apple is storing the kind of information on its devices that police normally have to get signed warrants from judges to

access. There are millions of devices out there. On one level, there’s nothing new about cell phones keeping track of our movements and coordinates. The GPS technology on these devices is necessary for the proper use of specialty Apps designed to locate places. But the amount of information stored on iPhones and iPads goes beyond the privacy cell phone users willingly give up when they buy the devices. No consumer product should contain that much information without the customer’s consent. Owners of iPads and iPhones should have the option of saying no to intrusive information hoarding on their devices at the point of purchase. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Reform ensures that Medicare will exist in future OVER THE past few weeks, there’s been a lot of talk about how Congress is going to reform Medicare. Frankly, there’s been a lot of misinformation, too. Let me clear up things: If you’re 55 years of age or older, you can stop worrying. You can hang up on the scary phone calls. If you’re 55 years or older, your Medicare benefits are not going to be touched. Period. You’ve earned those benefits, and I will keep fighting in Washington to make sure you continue to receive them. Some of my congressional colleagues proposed a plan that would have cut Medicare benefits for near-retirees – and I voted against that measure, and it was defeated. Other colleagues proposed a plan that would have prevented any type of Medicare reform, and I voted against that, too. What I did and do support is Medicare reform that guarantees benefits for those 55 years old and older, and provides a new benefit structure for those younger than 55. Political opponents already have gone back to the same old tactics; they’re scaring our senior citizens by lying to them. They call them up and tell them that they will lose their Medicare. They send them mail pieces to make them worry that they will not re-


COMMENTARY LOU BARLETTA ceive health care coverage. Those are reprehensible lies. Folks on the other side of this reform argument have said that the plan passed by Congress earlier this month will “end Medicare as we know it.” What they don’t tell you is that Medicare will end as we know it anyway – because the program will be broke within about a decade. Those younger than 55 will never receive Medicare benefits unless we initiate serious and substantial reforms. That’s why we have to fix Medicare for younger Americans. The plan I voted for on April 15 does not take one dime away from current Medicare recipients or those 55 and older. That’s the simple truth about the Medicare reform proposal. So if you’re 55 and older, you can stop reading right now. This Medicare reform plan doesn’t apply to you. Your benefits are safe. If you’re younger than 55, beginning in 2022, you will have access to the same health insurance plan as members of Congress. Wealthier beneficiaries will receive a lower subsidy, the sick will receive a higher payment if their condition worsens, and lower-

income seniors will receive additional assistance to cover their out-of-pocket costs. These simple but necessary changes protect the benefits of today’s seniors and nearretirees, and they reform the Medicare program before it goes broke. Medicare reform also ensures that the program exists for future generations. When Medicare was created in the 1960s, men lived to be about 66, women lived to be about 72, health care costs were half of what they are today, and Baby Boomers were just that – Baby Boomers. Today, men and women are living an average of a decade longer, health care costs have skyrocketed, and Baby Boomers are retiring and taking their well-earned benefits. The Medicare program is based on an outdated model, and unless it is reformed, it will go broke by 2022. We must adapt Medicare to the 21st century in a way that protects benefits for today’s senior citizens and near-retirees while preserving a level of benefits for future generations. The Medicare reform plan I support does just that. Anyone who says otherwise is lying to you.

inally, abortion facilities are receiving some scrutiny in the wake of murder charges being filed against a Pennsylvania abortionist. It apparently took 17 years for the state to inspect Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia abortion center, where the grand jury believes hundreds of newborn babies lost their lives. As Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said, there was “more oversight of women’s hair salons and nail salons” than over abortion facilities in Pennsylvania. A bill in the state House of Representatives would ensure that abortion facilities will operate under the same safety standards as ambulatory surgical facilities; HB 574 is a common-sense proposal that offers at least some protection for the women who enter abortion centers. But I look forward to the day when pregnant women in Pennsylvania will realize that there is help and hope available for every unexpected pregnancy.

‘Progressives’ blamed for foreign policy failures


see progressives have changed their stand on gun control. Evidently, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama have consulted the “imperial” Ouija board once again. It’s mystic advice on foreign policy is this: Arm the Libyan rebels. If, in fact, we armed these people with Nerf balls, I would be for it. But giving a pellet gun to an Islamist is the same as being an accessory to murder. I’m sorry, the people of that region make Charlie Manson and his band look like a Baptist choir. Hillary and Obama’s foreign policy is a failure. They take credit where none is due


and blame their failures on someone else. It reminds me of a stock market truism: “Buy on the rumor, sell on the fact.” There is one fact that is true about progressives. They have, but more important, will continue to sell out the American people to further their misguided notions of a new world order. William Miller Wyoming

Writer believes Raup should be city mayor


e have a true David-and-Goliath scenario in the city of Wilkes-Barre between two Democratic candidates for mayor. Our current mayor, Tom Leighton, who is powerful and well known, recently held a $250 cocktail party to raise more money for his already inflated campaign war chest. My candidate, Charlotte Raup, who has given years of volunteer service to our city, is holding free “meet and greets” and asking for nothing except the support of the residents. On Election Day, it is my hope that the voters will elect the “People’s Candidate,” Charlotte Raup, to lead our city into a brighter future. Cathie Bella Wilkes-Barre

Challenger baseball proves disabilities just melt away and a new world opens up By BILL O’BOYLE

Twenty years ago, Jennifer Dorosky, Matthew Echalk and Billy Sukus were teammates. They were members of the first Challenger Little League, formed in1991for kids with physical and/ or mental disabilities. Only the second Challenger league in Pennsylvania at the time, Dorosky, Echalk and Sukus were three of 30 kids who came out to play organized baseball. The participants were given uniforms and they played baseball on a real baseball field and the experience had a lasting effect. Jennifer Dorosky, 28 Dorosky teaches seventh-grade language arts at the Wyoming Valley West Middle School in Kingston. On a visit to her classroom, her students were asked what kind of a teacher Ms. Dorosky is, and they responded in unison, “Awesome!” Dorosky is a baseball fan. She said she was inspired by a quote

she heard from Charles Gibson of ABC-TV, who said, “There are three great days -- New Year’s Day, opening day of the baseball season and the first day of school.” “I’ve always felt comfortable in the classroom,” said Dorosky, a 2005 graduate of Misericordia University. “That’s why I became a teacher.” Dorosky said Challenger Little League gave her the opportunity to “earn the Dorosky name.” Her grandfather played semi-pro baseball, her father was an AllStar pitcher for Wyoming Valley West and her uncle pitched and played for the Spartans as well. “Baseball is a big part of my family,” she said. “At Challenger I finally felt normal. It really meant a lot to me.” Dorosky, daughter of Joe and Anne Dorosky of Kingston, has spina-muscular atrophy. She has been in a motorized wheelchair all her life. But it hasn’t slowed her down at all. She said she was glad Challenger came along when it did.


Matthew Echalk, 28 Echalk has Down syndrome and now works in the cafeteria at Pittston Area High School in Jenkins Township – his alma mater. He loves his job. “I clean the tables and I wash dishes too,” he said. His mom, Gloria, said Challenger Little League was good for her son. She said he met a lot of friends, some he still talks to, who he could relate to. “It was a chance for Matt to play

20-year reunion on Saturday On Saturday, Fred DeSanto and many of the league’s organizers will host a reunion of that first Challenger group. At least16 of the 30 original members have agreed to attend

and will play a special game against members of the 2011 league. The reunion will be held at noon at the Pittston Township Little League field just off the Pittston By-Pass. The inspiration behind the formation of the local Challenger league is Joey Wychoskie. Joey’s mother, Theresa, worked for DeSanto. She knew DeSanto was involved with Little League Baseball, so she asked about a baseball league she saw on TV. The league was in Connecticut and featured kids with mental and/or

physical disabilities. “I told Fred my son had cerebral palsy and that he wanted to play baseball,” she said. “That’s all I had to say to him; he took it from there.” DeSanto contacted Little League in Williamsport and got all the information on forming a local Challenger league. He then organized a board of directors and started planning. Challenger Little League would soon become a reality. Joey Wychoskie, now 26, will be at the reunion with his mom and dad, Joe.


NFL players get back to work


“If I was born 10 years earlier, I never would have had the opportunity to play baseball in an organized league,” Dorosky said. “I remember I couldn’t wait to get to the ballpark.” “My students see me as they do all their teachers,” Dorosky said. “After they are in my classroom for about a month, the novelty wears off and they see me as a normal teacher. They don’t hold back; they still do everything kids do. They give me headaches some days.”

CHALLENGER tion: “Why should I get your autograph?” Ashby told her he was on the Phillies. Capitano never missed a beat and her eyes widened and she said, “You are? So am I.” And there is the essence of Challenger Little League. The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League Baseball, Inc., to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 418, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school, to enjoy playing the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. The local league started in 1991, becoming only the second Challenger league in Pennsylvania – Williamsport having been the first. Today more than 30,000 children participate in more than 900 Challenger Divisions worldwide, according to the Little League Baseball, Inc., website.


an organized sport,” Gloria said. “It was an opportunity for him to be like regular kids out there on a baseball field.” Echalk played tee-ball when he was younger and, his mother said, that would have been the end of his baseball career had it not been for Challenger. “After tee-ball, Matt would not have been able to play organized baseball any more,” she said. “The Challenger league was a marvelous experience with so many social aspects as well.” Echalk said he always loved playing baseball. Asked if he could hit the ball, he said, “Oh yeah!” “I was a pretty good player,” he said. “I was on the Phillies.” Echalk is still involved with athletics;andhelovestobowl.“We’re very proud of Matt,” said his mom.

Matthew Echalk, 28, of Duryea, works in the cafeteria of Pittston Area High School.

On a video done in1993 for Challenger, Joey is featured rounding third base in his wheelchair being pushed by a “buddy.” Wychoskie is waving his hands wildly as he approaches home plate. He scores a run and the smile on his face tells you how excited Wychoskie was about playing in the Challenger league. “Joey still has his Mets jersey he wore that day,” his mom said. “And he’s still a Mets’ fan. Joey loves baseball. It meant so much to him to be on that field; to have the chance to play the game he loves. If not for Challenger, these kids would never have had the opportunity to play baseball.”

Passetti lives in Hanover Township. He’s been busy getting the house remodeled, but he said he wants to attend the reunion. Passetti has been working as a concert promoter, but he’s taking a break until the house is finished. “Challenger gave me a chance to do something I never would have done otherwise, and that’s play baseball,” said Passetti, who has cerebral palsy. “If I get there Saturday, I hope to be able to wave to the crowd and thank them.” DeSanto said learning about that first year’s group has been exciting. He said many of them have jobs and have enjoyed varying degrees of success.

Inaugural season had 30 kids The Challenger league began with 30 players the first year and the highest number of participants in any one season was 70, DeSanto said. He said the league averages around 50 to 60 kids each year. Dave Howell is the current president and the league is headquartered at Pittston Township Little League field. DeSanto said when the idea of having a 20-year reunion was suggested, he never expected the response. “I talked to Tony Passetti, who was in the first league,” DeSanto said. “He told me he just bought a house and he told me he will be at the reunion – he’s driving up.”

Confidence-builder DeSanto likes to think that Challenger might have contributed to their success. “Any time anyone has a great people experience, it opens them up to many opportunities,” said Robert Griffin, a psychologist in Forty Fort. “An organization like Challenger encourages more social confidence that is conducive to dealing with stress and growth in general.” Griffin said Challenger would produce success through athletics and the participants would experience a feeling of competency that in turn would increase self-esteem. “Anything that allows kids to be able to have a successful experi-

He will be exhibiting his work at the Fine Arts Fiesta on Public Square beginning May 17. Sukus is an accomplished athlete, his father said. And he got his start in athletics as a member of the first Challenger Little League team in 1991. “That’s where we saw what a good athlete Billy was,” his father said. “Challenger was the beginning of his athletic adventure.” Sukus went on to win numerous medals in the Special Olympics in aquatics, long distance running and bowling. He once bowled a 218 game, his father said. Billy Sukus, 33 Sukus works with canvas, wood Sukus is in the art apprentice and fabric.

Art is a big part of Sukus’ life, and his father said his son loves to travel. He has been to San Francisco (where he walked across the Golden Gate Bridge), Yosemite National Park; Alaska, Canada, Niagara Falls and Florida. Sukus answers questions mainly with a smile. He attends a speech and language program at Misericordia University to improve that skill, but he doesn’t initiate much conversation, his father said. When he’s not creating art, Sukus likes to watch football and the Olympic Games. His father said Challenger is where he learned how to participate in an organized sports program. “He learned how to follow instructions,” Mr. Sukus said. “He learned how to show his abilities and he learned what it was like to receive recognition for his accomplishments. He loved the applause.”

ABOUT CHALLENGER LITTLE LEAGUE • Each player gets a chance at bat. The side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster, or when a pre-determined number of runs have been scored, or when three outs are recorded. • One of the benefits of having a Challenger Division is that it encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the players on the field but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed.

ence, like athletics, would raise their feeling of competency and resilience and help develop their work ethic,” Griffin said. DeSanto said the Challenger league was organized so that kids who couldn’t participate in the regular Little League format would have the opportunity to get out on a baseball field dressed in uniforms and play ball. “They are all doing so well. They are productive adults contributing to society in many ways,” he said. Chris Berry, a Down syndrome Challenger veteran, will be at the reunion. Berry was always remembered for sliding into home, standing up and bowing to the crowd as he doffed his cap. Look for an instant replay on Saturday.

Because a few minutes later, lightning struck as well at Lake-Lehman High School and eventually ended a key Wyoming Valley Conference DiCOUGHLIN vision 1-B girls soccer game. Ivy NulDALLAS ton’s goal in the 53rd minute – and five minutes before the lightning arrived – allowed Coughlin to get a 1-1 tie with Dallas as neither team was able to pick up ground on first-place Berwick. “Just in the nick of time,” Coughlin coach Joe Spagnuolo said. “We didn’t capitalize on any of our opportunities in the first half. We scored off a set play, which was good, and then we had an opportunity just before they called the game. “We had a few opportunities. That seems like one of our problems – finishing.” Just before the Coughlin score, Dallas keeper Amber Yang came up with an outstanding save on a 20-yard liner by Brittany Kulesza. The two-year starter made a diving save to her left to knock down the shot, and then swatted away the ball with her right hand while sitting by the goal. Yang, though, had no

His two-run shot in the seventh helped SWB rally for a road win over Charlotte.


By KEITH CANNON For The Times Leader

FORT MILL, S.C. – Justin Maxwell’s two-run homer highlighted a four-run rally in the seventh inning that gave the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees an 8-5 victory over the Charlotte Knights on Tuesday night at Knights Stadium. Kevin Russo also homered for the Yankees (13-6), who have won seven of their last eight games. Maxwell’s sixth homer of the year, a oneout shot to left off Charlotte relief pitcher Deunte Heath YANKEES (0-2), came with Chris Dickerson on base via a walk, and it KNIGHTS erased the Yankees’ only deficit in a 3 hour, 20 minute game in which they had led almost all the way. Ramiro Pena slammed a two-run double in the inning. Maxwell, who hit a walk-off home run on Monday, was 2-for-5 with 3 RBI. Josh Schmidt (2-0), the second of three Yankees pitchers, picked up the victory with 2 1/3 innings of hitless relief after taking over for starting pitcher Adam Warren. Kevin Whelan finished with 1 1/3 hitless innings for his eighth save. For a game in which the pitching staffs combined for 21 strikeouts – 12 for Charlotte and nine for SWB, there were also plenty of big hits. The Yankees scored the game’s first run on Russo’s first home run of the season, a two-out solo shot to left field off Charlotte starting pitcher Jeff Marquez in the second inning. The Knights tied it in the bottom of the inning, on Jordan Danks’ two-out RBI double to center, which Yankees centerfielder Chris Dickerson just missed with a diving backhand stab. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre went back in front 2-1 with a single run in the third. Greg Golson led off the inning with a single and advanced to third on an infield error. Jorge Vazquez drove in Golson with a sacrifice fly. And the Yankees tacked on two more on back-to-back RBI singles by Dickerson and Justin Maxwell in the fifth.

Players stuck in limbo after end of lockout Teams were forced to open their facilities, but not for any “football activities.” By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

“What’s up with that? Let me get back to what I do best.” That could take a while. The 2011 season, and the business between 32 teams and their thousands of anxious players, is in a holding pattern. With more court fights and appeals expected, the NFL said it needed “a few days to sort this out” and provide some rules to follow. “We are in the process of determining throughout the league as to just how we’ll proceed and when we’ll open the new year across the league, the new football year,” Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “We have not done that.” At least the draft will be held

Lockout has turned into limbo for NFL players and owners, and everyone is stuck there for the time being. “It drives me insane, that’s what it does,” said Chicago rookie J’Marcus Webb, who was told he and a handful of other Bears couldn’t use the team’s weight room Tuesday. “I’m trying to eat healthy and work out, do my job and right now I’m just stuck at home working out and watching cartoons all day.

OSU still pandering to Tressel

THE SWEATER vest was gone, replaced by militarystyle camouflage as Jim Tressel prowled the sideline Saturday in Ohio State’s annual spring game. An odd uniform to be sure, even on military appreciation day. There was no truth to the rumor that university President E. Gordon Gee was ready in the locker room to shine Tressel’s boots if they got dirty. You might remember Gee for his part in a farcical news conference last month where Tressel got his hand formally slapped by the university for NCAA violations. Gee was the one who almost gagged at the suggestion that he might fire the football coach for his transgressions. “Are you kidding?” Gee said. “Let me just be very clear: I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me.” Funny guy, that Gee. Nothing like a little humor to help keep the sweater from unraveling even more. But you have to wonder who’s laughing now. Certainly not the NCAA, which served notice Monday that it was going after Tressel for withholding information and lying so that his star players could remain eligible. Included in a harshly worded 13-page letter sent to the university were charges that the coach “failed to deport himself ... (with) honesty and integrity.” Surely not Tressel, either. He’s now, at least in the eyes of the NCAA, both a liar and a cheat and there may come a time soon where even the university president who adores him so much may not be able to save him. The real problem for Tressel is that it’s all very clear cut. There isn’t any ambiguity about what happened, only what might happen because of it. Damaged goods Already, Ohio State will be without its star quarterback and four other players for the first five games of next season. Tressel won’t be on the sideline, either, after extending the university’s original two-game suspension of him to five games in a supposed gesture of solidarity with his players. But it goes farther than that. Tressel is now damaged goods and the Ohio State football program has also been badly wounded. Fans may still back the man who brought the Buckeyes their first national title in 34 years, but the parents of 18-year-old recruits may think twice about entrusting the future of their sons with a man who clearly has some issues in the character department. Consider that Tressel knew he was doing something wrong himself when he said late last year that his players must have known they did something wrong by selling jerseys, Big Ten championship rings and other memorabilia to the operator of a tattoo parlor. “I suppose that would be something rattling around inside the head of each of them individually,” he said at the time. “We all have a little sensor within us, ‘Well, I’m not sure if I should be doing this.’ ” Apparently that little sensor malfunctioned in Tressel, especially on Sept. 13 of last year. That’s when he dated and then signed his name on a one-page NCAA form that declared he had reported any violations he knew of to his superiors.
















Yet again it’s another huge 16-race slate on the agenda. Though it’s not nearly as good as the Tuesday program, it’s still a card that offers plenty of value. I know the races at the Downs this season have been much tougher to handicap than years past, meaning if you happen to be lucky enough to hit a race or two, it’s that much more money in your pocket.

Mountaineers top Crestwood in extra innings The Times Leader staff

DALLAS — It was nearly a week in the making, but Dallas finally picked up its extra-innings victory. Resuming a game that began April 20, the Mountaineers pushed across a run with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to defeat Crestwood 8-7 on Tuesday. Crestwood had scored five runs in the top of the seventh back on April 20 to tie the game 7-7 and force extra innings. The game was suspended after nine frames because of darkness. On Tuesday, Marc Noyalis (4-5, two doubles, two RBI) doubled with one out in the home half of the 10th and advanced to third on a groundout. After a walk, Alex Ivoska hit a hard grounder that led to an error, allowing Noyalis to score the winning run for Dallas (3-2). Noyalis struck out 12 in 62⁄3 innings while Zack Dirsa earned the win in relief. Travis DeBona and Bobby Saba had three hits. Nick Aigeldinger’s triple helped pull Crestwood (1-5) even in the seventh. Steve Brynok homered for the Comets. Crestwood

WILKES-BARRE — Alex Makos’ deciding victory at No. 6 singles finished the match early as Wilkes blanked King’s 5-0 in the semifinals of the 2011 Freedom Conference men’s tennis tournament Tuesday afternoon at the Ralston Athletic Complex courts. The top-seeded Colonels (10-3) will now host No. 2 seed Manhattanville, which defeated Eastern 6-0 on Tuesday. Wilkes started off the match with three doubles wins by Evan Katz/Wes McCollum, Clarke Freeman/ Makos and Jeremy Nolt/ Dakota Deem. King’s coach wins top honor

Bill Eydler led the Monarchs into the postseason and was named Freedom Conference Coach of the Year for his efforts. In his 32nd season with the program, Eydler oversaw three freshmen, two sophomores and a junior as King’s claimed the fourth seed. Meanwhile, Wilkes claimed the most spots on the AllFreedom team, as juniors Evan Katz and Jeremy Nolt were named to the first team while Clarke Freeman and Wes McCollum earned second-team honors. King’s freshman Tony Bevevino and Misericordia junior Fred Hockenbury were also selected to the second team.


Wilkes’ Nolt, Leicht win big

Coming off of an impressive regular season, Wilkes’s Melanie Nolt and Chris Leicht were named 2011 Freedom Conference Player of the Year and Coach of the Year, respectively. Nolt, a sophomore from Manheim, won the award for the second straight season, going 12-3 at first singles and winning all five of her matches in conference play. She also helped the Lady Colonels go 13-3 at first doubles and 4-0 in the conference. “I am very happy for Melanie to be named Freedom Conference Player of the year,” Leicht said in a press release. “She has had an amazing year so far, including going undefeated in conference matches in both singles and doubles.” Nolt won her second straight conference individual championship in the fall. For Leicht, it is the fifth straight conference coach of the year award and sixth overall. Several other local college players were also honored this week. Joining Nolt on the allconference first-team are teammates Victoria Bybel and Katie Lynn, King’s senior Rachel Hoffnagle and Misericordia freshman Michelle Cameron. Making the second team were Alexis Donner and Ally Kristofco of Wilkes along with Misericordia’s Cassie Foy and Breanne Phillips. Freedom tournament opens

Defense seals White Sox win The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Late substitute Brent Lillibridge made two spectacular catches in a row to save the White Sox in the ninth inning, and Gavin Floyd pitched Chicago to a 3-2 victory Tuesday night over the suddenly slumping New York Yankees. Lillibridge entered as a pinch-runner in the eighth and scored on Paul Konerko’s goahead homer off struggling setup man Rafael Soriano (1-1). Lillibridge stayed in the game in right field and, with two on in the ninth, raced back to the wall to make a terrific catch of Alex Rodriguez’s opposite-field drive for the second out, robbing the slugger of a game-tying hit and keeping the runners at first and second. Robinson Cano then hit a line drive to right and Lillibridge charged in, making an all-out dive to snag the ball for the final out. Mariners 7, Tigers 3

DETROIT — Miguel Olivo hit a blooper-reel home run and Felix Hernandez extended his dominance of the Tigers.

MILWAUKEE — Rickie Weeks, Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder all hit solo homers and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds for the first time this season.

four innings allowing only three hits. But Charlotte tied the game in the bottom of the fifth on Dayan Viciedo’s three–run homer with two outs. After Gookie Dawkins and Jim Gallagher had reached on singles, Viciedo blasted a 2-2 fastball from Warren over the wall in left center field. Danks put the Knights in front 5-4 in the sixth with an RBI single,

driving in Dallas McPherson, who had led off the inning by reaching on a passed ball. NOTES: The Yankees and the Knights play again in an 11:15 a.m. start today.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L April 27 1909 — The Chicago White Sox win their third straight 1-0 game over St. Louis in three days. 1918 — The Brooklyn Dodgers got into the win column after a major league record 0-9 start, with a 5-3 victory over the New York Giants in the opener of a doubleheader. 1929 — Brooklyn relief pitcher Clise Dudley homered on the first major league pitch he saw at Philadelphia’s Baker Bowl. 1930 — Chicago White Sox first baseman Bud Clancy had no chances in a nine-inning game against St. Louis. 1944 — Jim Tobin of the Braves pitched a no-hitter against the Dodgers in Boston, winning 2-0. He also hit a homer. 1947 — Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium drew a crowd of more than 58,000 to honor the ailing star. In the game, Sid Hudson of the Washington Senators beat Spud Chandler 1-0. 1968 — Tom Phoebus of the Orioles no-hit the Boston Red Sox 6-0 at Baltimore. 1973 — Kansas City’s Steve Busby pitched his first of two career no-hitters with a 3-0 victory over the Tigers at Detroit. 1983 — Walter Johnson’s record of 3,508 career strikeouts was eclipsed by Houston’s Nolan Ryan — a record which stood for 56 years. Ryan fanned Montreal pinch-hitter Brad Mills in the eighth inning as the Astros beat the Expos 4-2. 1994 — Scott Erickson, who allowed the most hits in the majors the previous season, pitched Minnesota’s first no-hitter in 27 years as the Twins beat Milwaukee 6-0. 1996 — Barry Bonds became the fourth major leaguer to amass 300 homers and 300 steals when he homered in the third inning of the San Francisco Giants’ 6-3 victory over the Florida Marlins. His father, Bobby Bonds, godfather Willie Mays and Andre Dawson are the only other players to reach 300-300. 2000 — Chicago White Sox shortstop Jose Valentin hit for the cycle and drove in five runs in a 13-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Valentin hit the cycle in single, double, triple and home run order. 2002 — Derek Lowe, who struggled to keep his job as Boston’s closer last season, pitched a no-hitter against Tampa Bay. Brent Abernathy was the only baserunner Lowe allowed in Boston’s 10-0 victory. 2003 — Kevin Millwood pitched a no-hitter to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the San Francisco Giants 1-0. Millwood struck out 10 and walked three. Today's birthday: Chris Carpenter 36.

Cervelli, who went1-for-5, had three hits in10 atbats in a three-game stint with Tampa of the Class A Florida State League to begin his rehab. Cervelli, who played for SWB in the 2009 season, broke a bone in his left foot during spring training.












Shakeup continues for contenders

Syracuse asst. coach leaving for EMU job

Trainer is confident Uncle Mo will be ready, but the same can’t be said for The Factor.

Rob Murphy is departing the Orange after seven successful years under Jim Boeheim.

By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Uncle Mo looks good to go. The Factor is good to go home. A dozen days before the Kentucky Derby, two of the top contenders are headed in opposite directions. Uncle Mo appeared right at home on the dirt at Churchill Downs on Tuesday, leaving trainer Todd Pletcher and owner Mike Repole optimistic he’ll be ready to run under the twin spires on May 7. The Factor, meanwhile, will be a non-factor. The Sam Vincente and Rebel Stakes winner is out of an increasingly wide-open Derby following throat surgery. Chalk it up to another chaotic day in a series of them leading up to the big race. A semblance of sanity, however, may have returned following Uncle Mo’s steady five-furlong workout under the lights in the pre-dawn darkness. The 3-year-old colt clocked the distance in 1:01.80 under the lights early Tuesday morning, his first major training move since a gastrointestinal infection was discovered following a thirdplace finish in the Wood Memorial on April 9. Pletcher called it “an indication that he’s in good form.” Repole, who cautioned his horse is still “50-50” for the Derby, was even more effusive. “The work was very Mo like,” Repole said. “We couldn’t have been more pleased. It’s been a really tough 17 days after the Wood. Haven’t had much sleep in the last 17 days.” Uncle Mo was originally scheduled to work around 8:30 a.m. but Pletcher decided to send him out just before 6 a.m. to avoid another line of storms that

have pummeled the track in recent days. The reigning 2-year-old champion looked at ease in the muck, easily finding his way under regular rider John Velazquez. “When he was pulling up on the backside a couple of gallopers went by him and he got in the bridle again,” Pletcher said. “He seemed really, really good this morning.” Uncle Mo was the prohibitive Derby favorite until his puzzling run in the Wood, where he led briefly in the stretch only to tire in the final yards to finish third behind Toby’s Corner to suffer the first loss of his career. A series of postrace tests revealed the infection. Uncle Mo will continue to be treated for the condition, though Pletcher and Repole are encouraged by the way the horse has bounced back since returning to the track where he won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last November. “I feel like, especially in the

last 96 hours, we’re seeing signs around the barn that he’s back to his old self,” Pletcher said. “Right after the Wood Memorial his appetite was depressed and he wasn’t eating the way he normally was and I think that the treatment we have him on, he’s responding favorably, too.” Pletcher cautioned, however, that there’s still a long way to go before Uncle Mo makes his way to the starting gate on May 7. Pletcher went on to win his first Derby with Super Saver and has two shots this year in Uncle Mo and stablemate Stay Thirsty, also owned by Repole. Stay Thirsty will be ridden by Ramon Dominguez in the Derby, Repole said. Three-time Derby winner Calvin Borel worked Stay Thirsty on Sunday. Borel remains without a Derby mount with less than two weeks to go. When Uncle Mo walked off the van a week ago he “needed to have 19 good days” to race, Pletcher said.

So far, so good. “I think every day is critical for every horse that’s here,” Pletcher said. “We’re pleased with every day that he’s had here. We’re pleased with every day Stay Thirsty has had here, but still, while it’s getting close, there’s still a long way to go.” Uncle Mo will have one more workout early next week before a final decision is made. “I feel much better today than I did a week ago, and I definitely feel better today than I did two weeks ago,” Repole said. The same can’t be said for trainer Bob Baffert. The Factor became the second Bafferttrained horse in as many days to be pulled from consideration. A day after Jaycito was scratched with a bruised foot, Baffert confirmed The Factor is also out of the Derby following throat surgery. “I just feel like the window is closing on him,” Baffert said. “I’d hate to rush him into this thing.”

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Jim Boeheim broke the ice with a joke or two, then turned serious as he prepared to say goodbye to assistant Rob Murphy. “This is a sad day for me,” Boeheim said Tuesday. “Coach Murphy has been so important to our program. He’s been an unbelievable coach for us, but he’s ready to be a head coach.” Murphy, 38, an assistant at Syracuse the past seven years, was hired to replace Charles Ramsey at Eastern Michigan. But he didn’t want to leave without thanking Boeheim publicly, and he struggled to keep his emotions in check. “I’ve had a great seven years,” Murphy began before halting immediately for several moments and brushing away tears. “I didn’t have a lot of experience at the highest level. I was a young coach trying to find my way and coach Boeheim gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. “They’ve always treated me and my wife as if I was family,” said Murphy. “This day was really to thank coach Boeheim. He’s such a great, great person. I’ll never forget the opportunity. Since I’ve been here, I’ve grown a lot. I’ve been able to become a well-rounded man under coach Boeheim, not just a coach. As I move forward, I think I’m well prepared.” Small wonder Murphy called his new job a perfect fit. It’s just a 40-minute drive from his hometown of Detroit, and Mayor Dave Bing, Boeheim’s college roommate, already has given Murphy his endorsement. “I talk to every assistant that comes here to help us to be as

“A sad day for me. ... But he’s ready to be a head coach.”

strong as we can be and to get ready to be a head coach,” Boeheim said. “Rob Murphy is ready. We’re going to miss him here. We’ll try Jim Boeheim to go on withSyracuse coach out him, but it won’t be that easy. I’m just really proud that he’s been able to get this job. I know that he’s going to do a great job.” Murphy was a high school coach in his hometown for six years and also served as an assistant at Kent State for two. At Syracuse, Murphy mentored the forwards and his tireless work was integral in luring Wes Johnson from Iowa State. Johnson was Big East player of the year in 2009-10 and became the fourth overall pick by Minnesota in last year’s NBA draft. Murphy also recruited current star Kris Joseph, who will be a senior in the fall, and the Montreal native had mixed emotions as he listened to the coach’s farewell. “We’re pretty close,” Joseph said. “The way he recruits is amazing because of the way he makes you feel — like you’re a part of a family. He’s more like a big brother, a father figure. It’s going to be hard without him, but he’ll still be with me. I know I can still count on him to be there.” Murphy’s new job will be a challenge, and he knows it. Ramsey was fired with a 68-118 record over six seasons. “The program is not in great shape,” said Murphy, who expects to incorporate much of what he’s learned at Syracuse, including Boeheim’s signature zone defense. “They had a host of really good players in their glory days. I want to bring that back. They have a vision to get the program back to where it was.”

Overseas tournaments aren’t alone in luring golfers with cash benefits.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Ernie Els certainly isn’t the first person to chase appearance money overseas, a practice that has been going on before he was born. He’s just given it the best definition. It was toward the end of the 2007 season when Els had signed a threeyear deal to play the Singapore Open, which kept him from a shot at the Order of Merit because Europe moved its season-ending Volvo Masters to the same date. “How can I say it?” Els said. “The end of the year, you’ve got the wheelbarrow out, too. You want to cash in a little bit.” Tiger Woods has the biggest wheelbarrow of all, pulling in $3 million from Australia, Japan and Dubai recently. Lee Westwood rose to No. 1 last week by winning the Indonesia Masters, and he wasn’t there strictly for the scenery. Westwood, Els, Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson are among those playing in South Korea this week. There are no such wheelbarrows in America. It’s not called appearance money, anyway. But it is naive to think that some players are not being compensated for playing in certain PGA Tour events, mostly through permissible and clever ways for a tournament sponsor to enhance its event. “America is doing what we’ve done for 20 years, and there’s nothing wrong with it,” said Chubby Chandler of British-based International Sports Management, whose clients include Els, Westwood, Rory McIlroy and two recent major champions in Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel. “Tournaments have to get players to commit early,” Chandler said. “You can’t sell tournaments on the hope a bunch of guys might enter on Friday night. It’s just a way of getting players

there. And they have to do something for it.” The Zurich Classic this week in New Orleans has one of its strongest fields in five years, helped by a series of “ambassadors” who have a relationship with the global insurance provider and are taking part in a charity campaign that goes beyond the tournament. Ben Crane and Justin Rose wear the Zurich logo. The others who are involved in the yearlong campaign are Camilo Villegas, Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell and Rickie Fowler. Of those four, only McDowell has played New Orleans previously, and that was five years ago. It’s a smart way to do business, because tournaments compete with each other as fiercely as players do on the course. It’s one thing to sign up as a title sponsor, even more beneficial for a company to pay a little more to align itself with quality players. “Once you got corporate America involved ... look at any sport,” Curtis Strange said. “It’s important to have a good field for your sponsors. It’s important to promote your event for TV, which promotes your product.”

War of words pays off for Pens in first round Was the comeback against Norfolk aided by some trash talk? Some players think so. By TOM VENESKY

After watching Norfolk goaltender Dustin Tokarski give up a mere three goals in the first three games of their playoff series, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins knew they had to get the hot netminder off his game. So they ran their mouths. And it worked. In the following three games, Tokarski gave up 10 goals and the Penguins won the series. Sure, improved play was the main reason the Penguins were able to get enough pucks past Tokarski to win the final four games

of the series. But there were some little things – a few choice words, if you will – that helped. “Tokarski was a big part of their success in the first few games and we wanted to get under his skin,” said Penguins winger Geoff Walker. Because of where the entrances to the locker rooms are located in Norfolk, the Admirals players had to skate through the Penguins’ end of the ice after warmups. It was the perfect setup for Walker, who gave Tokarski an earful every time he skated by to leave the ice. “I think it worked,” Walker said. Before Game 5, Walker yapped in the face of Norfolk tough guy Pierre-Cedric Labrie at the red line and attracted a crowd. “We were getting under their

skin,” Walker said. And the Penguins quickly got on the scoreboard, registering two power play goals in the first period to go on to a 2-1 win. During the same game, another Penguins player who isn’t exactly shy played a key role by drawing a penalty on Norfolk forward Marc-Antoine Pouliot that led to a power play goal.

•The Penguins held their first practice of the week on Tuesday at the Ice Rink at Coal Street. After two days off, head coach John Hynes said his players were anxious to get back on the ice and begin preparing for Thursday’s opening matchup against the Charlotte Checkers at home. • Forward Bryan Lerg didn’t practice on Tuesday. Hynes said Lerg was resting and added that he expects everyone to be healthy for Thursday. • Defenseman Joey Mormina is

thankful to be in the postseason again. As a member of the Adirondack Phantoms, Mormina missed the postseason for the first time in his AHL career. The fact that he had an extended summer didn’t help the disappointment that comes with not making the playoffs. “Everyone says you get to go home early, it’s a long summer,” Mormina said. “But to be honest, it was the most miserable summer I’ve had in a long time.”

Defenseman Joey Mormina got tangled up with Pouliot along the boards and drew the holding call before a scrum ensued. “I don’t know if it was the result of something I said previously, but he got frustrated and took my legs out,” Mormina said. “We end

up scoring the game-winning goal.” Getting under an opponent’s skin with verbal jabs may seem like a relatively easy thing to do, but there is a technique behind it. Walker said a player can’t get too consumed with running his

mouth and forget about keeping his own game in order. “You can’t just stand there all during warm-up and take yourself out of the game,” he said. Mormina added that the verbal punishment is more effective when it’s used in conjunction with solid physical play. He said that the right players have to be targeted as well. “Pick your spots. A good oneliner here and there might rattle a guy. Some guys shrug it off, so you have to focus on the ones that it affects and maybe it will get them off their game,” Mormina said. “But if you keep beating the same drum over and over, it’s easier for them to tune out. “You have to play physical, get in their face and be an agitator. It’s not just yap, yap, yap – you have to back it up.”



Tiger slowed again by knee injury, will miss Wells Fargo Mohawks score late, By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tiger Woods has a minor injury to his left knee and Achilles’ tendon that will keep him out of the Wells Fargo Championship next week, raising more questions that his health might be the biggest obstacle in his chase of Jack Nicklaus’ record. Woods said on his website Tuesday that he hurt himself hitting a shot during the third round of the Masters. It’s the fourth time he has missed a tournament because of his left knee. Woods did not say when he might return, but he hopes to be back in a few weeks.

chance a few minutes later. Kulesza took a restart from the left side and about 25 yards from goal and launched a perfect pass to Nulton, who connected on a header. A short time later, lightning brought a halt to the game with

“This is precautionary. We’re not at all concerned,” said Mark Steinberg, his agent at IMG. “He’s just listening to his doctors, which is kind of nice. He certainly didn’t listen to them before the U.S. Open in 2008.” Woods won that U.S. Open in a playoff for his 14th major. He hasn’t won a major since then, leaving him four behind the record 18 professional majors won by Nicklaus. Steinberg said Woods has been in a protective boot when he’s moving around and has not hit a shot since the Masters. He said Woods considered playing the Wells Fargo until Tuesday. Woods won at Quail Hollow in 2007 and

22:05 remaining. Although it appeared well west of the stadium, PIAA rules state a game must be stopped if lightning is spotted and play can’t resume until the 30 minutes after the last strike. It didn’t take too long for the lightning to arrive at the field and with a storm approaching quickly the game was called, moving Dallas to 5-0-2 and Coughlin to 4-1-1. Berwick is 60-1.

had not finished worse than 11th in four appearances until a year ago when he missed the cut with his highest 36-hole score. The following week is The Players Championship, which Woods won in 2001, although it is not among his favorite courses. He has finished in the top 10 only four times in 13 appearances and withdrew from the final round a year ago with a neck injury. Steinberg said there was a “reasonable chance” Woods will be at The Players Championship. “We’ll do the same next week, do an early to midweek test to see if it’s good enough where he can be hitting the ball,” he said.

Both teams started the game by hitting the post in the opening five minutes. Dallas took a 1-0 lead in the ninth minute as Vanessa Parsons chipped a pass to Ashley Dunbar, who finished off the play in the penalty area. Coughlin then controlled a good portion of the action, but Yang came up with her first big save by knocking away a 30-yard shot by Olivia Spagnola. “Even in the first half, I

thought we were dominating and doing a good job,” Spagnuolo said. “The second half we had the momentum and came out strong. That’s the breaks. That’s why we always tell them, ‘Make use of your opportunities.’ ”

FLYERS Continued from Page 1B

James van Riemsdyk, and Ville Leino all scored against Miller to suck the drama out of Game 7. The Flyers surely won’t complain about a rout. “We had big-time players score big-time goals,” Flyers captain Mike Richards said. This was the Flyers team that spent a chunk of the season atop the East standings, not the one that stumbled down the stretch. Coburn put the Flyers ahead with only 19 seconds left in the first period, and Briere and van Riemsdyk put the game away with goals in the second. “In the big games, we show up,” said Briere, as the crowd roared in approval. The Sabres never stood a chance in front of 19,966 screaming Flyers fans. Or against Boucher.

Boucher may have solidified himself as the No. 1 goalie for as long as Philadelphia’s postseason run lasts. Sergei Bobrovsky started Games 1 and 2; Boucher got Games 3-5 and 7; and Michael Leighton Game 6. Boucher won two games in relief, including Sunday’s win-or-go-home Game 6 in Buffalo. This time, it was Miller who was yanked. Miller, who won two1-0 games this series, got the hook after Leino’s slapper early in the third made it 4-0. The crowd went wild when Miller skated off the ice. Leino applauded hockeystyle, tapping his glove against his stick in appreciation. From there, it was just a matter of watching the minutes tick off. Boucher’s bid at the Flyers’ first shutout of the season ended when Tyler Myers made it 4-1 in the third. The Flyers rallied from a 3-2 series deficit a year after they won four straight to overcome a




3-0 hole against Boston in the East semifinals. There was no need for a comeback in this game. The Flyers pounded Miller for 19 minutes in the first period — one near-miss even set off the goal light. With time winding down, Briere won a clean faceoff and got the puck to Coburn. His liner from the point turned into a knuckleball after Sabres winger Michael Grier tipped it with his glove and the puck wobbled through Miller’s legs. Briere, a former Sabre, tapped Miller on the back of his head as he skated away. “There’s no animosity toward the team,” Briere said. The Flyers grabbed the 1-0 lead with 19 seconds left and reversed what had been a string of miserable starts. The Sabres outscored them 11-5 in the first period over the first six games. Briere, one of the great clutch playoff performers in the NHL, made it 2-0 when he sneaked in





behind Miller and pounded in his series-high sixth goal. Van Riemsdyk made it 3-0 midway through the second and the Sabres were finished. Canadiens 2, Bruins 1 MONTREAL — Brian Gionta and Michael Cammalleri scored during two separate two-man advantages and the Montreal Canadiens forced a decisive Game 7 in their first-round playoff series with a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night. Game 7 is Wednesday night in Boston, with the Bruins looking to beat Montreal for only the ninth time in 33 postseason series. Dennis Seidenberg scored for Boston, which played more than half the game without ejected winger Milan Lucic but still outshot the Canadiens 32-27. Boston had taken the lead in the closely contested series with consecutive overtime wins, but couldn’t get the equalizer behind a sharp Carey Price.


Bulls storm past Pacers to close out opening series The Associated Press

CHICAGO — Derrick Rose scored 25 points, Luol Deng added 24 and the Chicago Bulls finally played like a top seed, knocking off the Indiana Pacers 116-89 in Game 5 to wrap up their first-round playoff series Tuesday night. The top-seeded Bulls can breathe a little easier after getting a dominant performance by their MVP candidate and an emphatic win that came on the heels of four dramatic games. They can also turn their attention to the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they’ll meet Atlanta or Orlando. Rose seemed just fine after spraining his left ankle in Game 4, hitting 8 of 17 shots. He dominated in the early going and came up big in the third after the Pacers pulled within four. He scored 10 points over the final six minutes, and Chicago ended the quarter on a 23-8 run to blow the game open.

Joakim Noah added 14 points and eight rebounds, and the Bulls won a playoff series for the first time since they swept Miami in the first round in 2007 even though Carlos Boozer scored just two. Danny Granger scored 20 for the Pacers. Tyler Hansbrough added 14 points and 11 rebounds, but the Pacers trailed the entire way and committed 21 turnovers. Magic 101, Hawks 76 ORLANDO, Fla. — Jason Richardson scored 17 points and J.J. Redick added 14 to help the Magic stay alive in the playoffs with a victory over the Hawks.

Weekday Special

NFL Continued from Page 1B

this week, even if free agency and personnel swaps are up in the air. In one of the oddest days in NFL history, players showed up at their team headquarters and most were told that they were welcome to come inside as long as they didn’t participate in any sort of “football activities.” Most left in a matter of minutes with more questions than answers about where the $9 billion business is headed. And there was no consistency — some teams allowed players to work out (Giants) while others turned them away altogether (Bills). No rules, not yet. Just uncertainty. In a memo distributed by the NFLPA, free agents were told they can contact teams and shop their services, putting pressure on the NFL to set up a free agency system that complies with antitrust laws. The document also told players that teams are responsible for care of any football-related injury, meaning it’s “safer for players to work out on club property.” U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson lifted the 45-day lockout late Monday, but that did nothing to clear this up. The NFL asked her to put her order on hold, and she agreed to weigh the request after the players’ response is filed Wednesday. That means the questions will linger at least another day and if

the NFL loses again, it will place its hopes with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. With Nelson’s decision pending, NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash said it was too soon to tell exactly when free agency would begin and which players would be eligible. “What we need to do is let the dust settle for a day or two and see if the stay is put in place, and then we’ll all know more and go from there,” Pash said. Green Bay Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy said the owners were concerned about restarting league operations — and then perhaps having another “un-start” in two months. “One of our lawyers described it as trying to unscramble an egg,” Murphy said. “I think that’s what we all want to avoid.” Little was clear Tuesday as both sides seemed to make up the rules as they went along. And the vast majority of players simply stayed away. “It’s very chaotic for the teams right now,” agent Drew Rosenhaus said. “It’s not chaotic for the players. Our position is the lockout is over, free agency should begin, signings should begin, offseason workouts should begin, everything should be going on. The longer the NFL doesn’t do that and drags this out, the more there are concerns of collusion and violations of antitrust laws.” Lawyers and leaders for the players accused the league of essentially fostering the confusion by not being clear or consistent about how players could use the facilities.

IBM OKs stock buyback

French back Italian banker

French President Nicolas Sarkozy says his government supports Italian central banker Mario Draghi to become the new head of the European Central Bank in October. The announcement at a bilateral summit alongside Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi clears up French support for the successor for ECB chief Jean-Claude Trichet, a Frenchman whose term expires in the autumn. Many had expected a German to succeed Trichet, but Axel Weber, the outgoing head of Germany’s Bundesbank and previously considered the top candidate, has ruled himself out. That has opened the race up, with Draghi gaining favor recently, though Germany has yet to state its preferred candidate. Sarkozy said Tuesday a Draghi appointment would be a strong signal “for all those Italians who doubt Italy’s role in the EU.” Berlusconi has endorsed Draghi.

Consumer confidence up

Consumer confidence recovered somewhat in April, though the impact of a spike in gasoline prices is still evident, according to data released Tuesday by the Conference Board. The confidence index hit 65.4 in April, compared with an upwardly revised 63.8 in March. That’s still below the 72.0 reading of February, as gasoline prices nationally have approached $4 per gallon.

A 2011 Ford Fiesta is displayed at the North American International Auto Show, in Detroit. Ford posted its best firstquarter profit in 13 years, as its new, more fuel-efficient vehicles reached showrooms during a surge in gasoline prices.

1Q profits thrill Ford The Associated Press


EARBORN, Mich. — Ford posted its best first-quarter profit in 13 years, as its new, more fuelefficient vehicles reached showrooms during a surge in gasoline prices. Ford Motor Co. on Tuesday said its profit rose 22 percent to $2.6 billion, its best first-quarter performance since 1998. It was the company’s eighth straight quarterly profit in its climb back from near-bankruptcy five years ago. Ford’s quarterly revenues rose18 percent to $33.1billion, far higher than the $30.5 billion analysts were projecting. “Our team delivered a great quarter, with solid growth and improvements in all regions,” said Ford President/CEO Alan Mulally. Ford Chief Financial Officer Lewis Booth said Ford also continued to make progress paying off its debt. Ford, which took out a $23 billion loan in 2006 to revamp its operations, ended the quarter with $16.6 billion in debt. That debt level was down $2.5 billion from the start of the year. Ford now has $4.7 billion more cash than debt, an improvement of $3.3 billion from the start of this year. The March 11 earthquake in Japan, which has hurt production at Japanese automakers, has had little impact on Ford so far. Other companies also reported first quarter financials on Tuesday. Here’s a recap of some of those reports: • Valero Energy Corp. says it earned $98 million in the first quarter, reversing a yearago loss, on stronger fuel demand outside the United States and Europe. Net income was17 cents per share in the January-March quarter, compared with a loss of $113 million, or 20 cents per share, in

the same part of 2010. Revenue increased 42 percent to $26.3 billion. • US Airways, the nation’s fifth-largest airline, says its first-quarter loss more than doubled to $114 million as fuel prices rose sharply. Fuel costs jumped by $200 million, up almost 39 percent from a year earlier. US Airways is the only U.S. airline that does not hedge against fuel price spikes. It has been raising fares to make up for higher fuel prices. And the demand is there — traffic rose 4 percent from the same period last year. Those two things helped push revenue up11.7 percent to $2.96 billion. The loss amounted to 71 cents per share. It would have been 68 cents per share if not for special items. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected a slightly larger loss of 73 cents per share on revenue of $2.94 billion. A year ago, the airline lost $45 million, or 28 cents a share. Not counting fuel, its costs for each seat flown one mile fell by1.1 percent. • The Hershey Co. reported higher firstquarter net income as its sales increased thanks to new products and heavy advertising. The chocolate-making icon credited the launch of Hershey’s Drops and Reese’s Minis, its expansion outside the U.S. and a 30 percent boost in ad spending. Net income rose to $160 million, or 70 cents a share, compared with earned $147.4 million, or 64 cents a share, in the period a year earlier. Adjusted earnings were 72 cents a share, beating analysts’ expectations for 70 cents, according to FactSet. Revenue increased11percent to $1.56 billion, beating analysts’ average forecast for $1.49 billion. • UPS is raising its full-year earnings forecast after first-quarter net income rose 66 percent as customers paid more to move packages faster. United Parcel Service Inc. said it expects to earn $4.15 to $4.40 a share this year, implying

growth of17 to 24 percent from 2010. Its previous estimate was $4.12 to $4.35 a share. The Atlanta firm earned $885 million, or 88 cents a share, up 66 percent from a year earlier, when it earned $533 million, or 53 cents a share. Revenue jumped 7 percent to $12.58 billion. FactSet says analysts expected a profit of 84 cents per share on sales $12.71 billion. • Coca-Cola Co.’s first-quarter net income climbed 18 percent as business overseas strengthened and sales of its sodas and juices rose in all regions of the world. Still, Coke’s results missed Wall Street expectations, partly because of effects from Japan’s earthquake and tsunami. Coca-Cola earned $1.9 billion, or 82 cents per share, for the period ended April1. That’s up from $1.61billion, or 69 cents per share, a year ago. Excluding 4 cents per share in restructuring charges and other items, earnings were 86 cents per share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet forecast 87 cents per share. • 3M Co. is raising its earnings expectations for the year, saying higher sales around the globe will offset the disruption to its business in Japan from the earthquake there. The Maplewood, Minn. maker of Post-Its and Scotch Tape now expects to earn between $6.27 to $6.47 per share this year, excluding an increase in pension and postretirement benefits. The company expects problems in Japan will cut earnings by about 10 to13 cents per share this year. Analysts’ average estimate is $6.24 a share, according to FactSet. 3M issued the outlook as it reported first-quarter profit that rose16 percent from a year ago. The company said it earned $1.08 billion in the first quarter, or $1.49 a share, compared with $930 million, or $1.29 a share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 15 percent to $7.31 billion. The results topped analysts’ expectations of $1.42 a share on revenue of $6.84 billion.

NEW YORK — Aflac is betting a sales manager from Minnesota has the voice to drive the name “Aflac” into the recesses of your brain and keep it there. Daniel McKeague, 36, a father of three from Hugo, Minn., beat out 12,500 other contestants to replace actor Gilbert Gottfried and become the new voice of the reinsurance company’s duck mascot. Gottfried voiced Aflac’s duck for U.S. audiences for 11 years, but was ousted in March after making insensitive remarks on Twitter about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, which produces about 75 percent of Aflac’s revenue. Aflac soon announced a contest for Gottfried’s replacement, though the actor who has long offered a gentler interpretation of the duck for Japanese audiences will continue. McKeague recorded a 30-second clip at radio station KQRS in Minneapolis, where he works, uploaded it to Aflac’s website and later did a more formal video audition. After learning early Tuesday that he was selected for the gig, McKeague said he’s known for doing silly voices. “Whenever that ad would come on, I would imitate the duck and the kids loved it,” said McKeague, whose children are 5, 8 and 11. Aflac Chief Marketing Officer Michael Zuna says the company and its longtime advertising agency, The Kaplan Thaler Group, first winnowed the contestants to a short list of about 50, which they cut to 8 and finally to 3 — none of them celebrities. Contestants had to be able to convey a range of emotion within the single word “Aflac” and submit to an extensive background check. Executives listened to the three finalists and chose McKeague for his range and his ability to embody the duck. “We thought he was the best by far. I can’t explain to you why. It just was. Maybe it is part of the mystique of the Aflac duck” said Dan Amos, Chairman and CEO of Aflac, based in Columbus, Ga. He gets a one-year contract in the low six figures that the company said will likely be renewed for several years. The first ad with McKeague’s voice aired Tuesday evening during the new show “The Voice” on NBC. McKeague says he is thrilled — and don’t expect him to pull a “Gottfried” during his tenure. “I understand what’s at stake, it is not just getting behind a microphone and screaming ‘Aflac.’ If you’re a spokesperson you have responsibilities.”

Sony unveils tablet computer to take on Apple By YURI KAGEYAMA AP Business Writer

TOKYO — Sony is planning a tablet computer with a touch panel similar to Apple’s iPad for later this year that the Japanese manufacturer promises will make the best of its gadgetry and entertainment strengths. The product, code-named S1, shown Tuesday in Tokyo, comes with a 9.4-inch display for enjoying online content, such as movies, music, video games and electronics books, and for online connections, including e-mail and social networking. Sony, which boasts electron-

ics as well as entertainment divisions, also showed S2, a smaller mobile device with two 5.5 inch displays that can be folded like a book. It did not give prices. But Sony Corp. Senior Vice President Kunimasa Suzuki said they would be competitive when they go on sale worldwide in about September. Both run Google’s Android 3.0 operating system. The announcement of Sony’s key net-linking offerings comes as it tries to fix the outage of its PlayStation Network, which offers games and music online. It is unclear when that can start running again. Sony has

blamed the problem on an “external intrusion” and has acknowledged it would have to rebuild its system to add security measures and strengthen its infrastructure. Suzuki said both of the latest tablets feature Sony’s “saku saku,” or nifty, technology that allows for smooth and quick access to online content and for getting browsers working almost instantly after a touch. “We offer what is uniquely Sony,” Suzuki said after demonstrating how the S1 was deAP PHOTO signed with a tapered width for Sony Corp.’s prototype tablets code-named, S1, left, and S2, carrying around “like a magaare held by models in Tokyo. zine.”

Earnings season surprises

This earnings season has had several surprises that weren’t about income or revenue. They’ve been about industry trends: Quarterly net income at JPMorgan Chase’s retail arm, includes mortgages


Banks were looking better last month after the Federal Reserve said several were healthy enough to raise their dividends. But reality hit when JPMorgan Chase said it set aside $1.1 billion for losses from failed mortgages and home-equity loans last quarter – and warned that losses “will continue for a while.” Financial stocks have had the worst performance among the 10 industries in the S&P 500 this year. They’re up 1 percent. The index is up 7 percent.

Worldwide PC shipments, by quarter

Apple sold 4.7 million iPads in the first quarter, and smartphones are getting more sophisticated. But the devices haven’t killed the personal computer. Intel, whose chips go into PCs, said its earnings rose 30 percent. Its growth was better than financial analysts expected. So was Intel’s forecast for revenue for this quarter. Worldwide PC shipments fell 1.1 percent, according to Gartner. But Citi analyst Glen Yeung says they have bottomed. He expects sales to strengthen through 2011.

Google full-time employment, by quarter

27k Everyone from consumers to investors has been asking: 25 When will businesses start hiring? Google did, and was punished.

Revenue also grew during the quarter: up 27 percent to $8.58 billion. 19 Investors may be worried that hiring will raise other 17 companies’ expenses. But many analysts still like Google.

This very warm and increasingly humid air mass will remain in place into tomorrow morning. Temperatures will continue to trend 20 degrees above normal up until the time a cold front arrives Thursday afternoon. Up until then much of the area will remain dry, but thunderstorms with hail could form again this afternoon especially in central Pennsylvania. Last night in Clinton County, hail up to 2 inches in diameter fell, indicative of strong updraft winds inside the storm reaching speed of 60 mph. On Thursday, expect more rain to lead the way for much cooler weather here on Friday.

o your invitation to the royal wedding got lost in the mail, too? Don’t fret. Live coverage of Friday’s nuptials is to commence in the wee morning hours for most of the United

States, which is a fine time to settle in front of the telly with a basketful of freshly baked scones. Really. Traditional British cream scones come together in minutes (you can even measure the ingredients the night before). They bake in the time it will take an attendant to fasten all the buttons on Kate Middleton’s gown. Scones are Scottish in origin but quickly caught on throughout the British Isles, and the subsequent Empire. Their delicate, not-too-sweet character welcomes the addition of dried fruit such as the traditional currants, but also raisins, dried cherries or even our own colonial invention, dried cranberries. Having said that, don’t let the presence of currants convince you that

scones in any way contribute to your two to four daily servings of fruit. The truth is that scones are a bit naughty, because the best are made with cream. If consumed willy-nilly, they’re not conducive to wearing the sort of sheer frock Kate once modeled for a charity fashion show, rendering the prince officially smitten. Successful scones are the essence of simplicity, relying on two important concepts: One, thoroughly whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to avoid any pockets of bitter


The wet and dry ingredients are mixed while making the scones.

Dough is kneaded and formed to make the delightful dessert.

1 eggplant, cut into strips. 1 red pepper, cut into thin strips 4 ounces roasted grape tomatoes 4 ounces white cabbage, cut into thin strips 4 ounces sugar snap peas 2 ounces carrot, cut into thin strips 2 ounces scallions 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 1 teaspoon grated fresh garlic 1 tablespoon sesame oil 2 ounces fresh white wine 2 ounces fresh mushrooms (shiitake, oyster) 18 dry pack scallops (size up to 10 pieces per pound) 18 jumbo shrimp, butterflied 4 ounces teriyaki sauce 4 ounces sweet chili sauce 1 pound short spiral pasta. 2 ounces yellow curry powder 1 ounce chili powder 1 ounce sesame seeds Preparation: Boil the pasta for six to eight minutes in salted water to which you have added the yellow curry powder and chili powder. “Shock,” or briefly rinse, the pasta in colder water to stop the cooking process, and hold for future service. Toss the eggplant with onions and tomatoes, salt and pepper. Oven-roast them for 20 minutes. Heat the wok and sear the scallops until golden brown. Add the shrimp and cook partially through. Transfer the seafood onto another oven-proof pan. Drizzle with Sweet Chili Sauce and sesame seeds. Finish in the oven for 3 to 4 minutes while you stir-fry your vegetables. Reheat wok, add sesame oil and begin cooking the vegetables in stages: first, the cabbage with ginger and garlic – cook until soft and transfer to large bowl – then the mushrooms, fast-cook until slightly soft. Then add scallions. Finish with the carrot and sugar snap peas; just slightly cook, deglaze with white wine and teriyaki sauce. Add all these ingredients to the bowl with previously cooked ingredients. Add the roasted vegetables to the bowl and toss. Serve over the warm pasta and top with the seafood. This recipe easily can become strict vegetarian by omitting the seafood. You can spice it up with chili paste.

Disks of dough for the scones are cut into triangles.

Doughnut shop offers royal treat that’s all heart By SARA POKORNY

Perhaps you’ve baked yourself bonetired during the Easter celebrations. So, too, have some locally owned bakeries, where royal-wedding-themed treats aren’t exactly found in abundance. If you have a sweet tooth and plan to stay up all night Thursday into Friday, Dunkin’ Donuts has the goods, however. Earlier this month, the doughnut shop started selling “Royal Wedding” doughnuts. “They’re a heart-shaped shell filled with apple raspberry jelly, covered in


vanilla frosting and chocolate drizzled on top,” Melissa Blaum, manager at the downtown Wilkes-Barre location, said. “They’re probably my favorite

doughnut in here right now,” she said. “And they sell really well. Everyone is snatching them up.” Though they might look like a simple creation, a lot of thought went into them. Naturally, the heart signifies Will and Kate’s love for each other. The doughnut is filled with jelly to represent the couple’s happiness-filled life, and the toppings tell a tale of mixing tradition with modern flair. The white represents the bride’s dress, and chocolate drizzle is a modern twist that shows Will’s love for chocolate. Get them while they last; these doughnuts come off the shelves May 1.

Makes: 8. Note: Scones — without the currants — make a terrific base for strawberry shortcake. 2 cups all-purpose flour 3 tbsp. sugar 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 cup currants (or other dried fruit) 1 1/3 cups heavy cream Milk for brushing Decorative, or sparkling, sugar Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place rack in middle position. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or spray with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, thoroughly whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in currants until evenly distributed. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the cream. Stir until everything is moistened and a soft dough is formed. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured counter and knead a few times, shaping it into a fat log

WHOLE EARTH’S 6TH ANNUAL HOLISTIC & PSYCHIC FAIR NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR: Hilton Garden Inn 242 Highland Park Blvd., • Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702 Sat. April 30th, 10am-6pm & Sun. May 1st, 10am-5pm Admission: $4.00, Kids 12 & under FREE


baking powder once baked. And two, stir in the cream until everything is well-moistened, but don’t overmix. Because of their tendency to spread while baking, scones go into a hot 400-degree oven for a few minutes to set the dough, then finish baking in reduced heat until they’re just golden. With a pot of tea — or, let’s face it, at that hour of the morning coffee is acceptable — you’ll be set from the arrival of the carriage to the waves from the balcony. A final note: The word “scone” does not rhyme with “Sloane” (as in Ranger) but with “gone,” which is what these quick breads will be before you know it.

Married woman looking to hook up with sister’s friend needs to wise up Dear Abby: I recently had a conversation with my married sister that left me speechless. While making plans to visit me for a few days, she asked if I could “hook her up” with any guys. I was shocked. Not only was it awkward, it left me feeling disgusted. If a person is unhappy in his or her marriage, shouldn’t the marriage be ended BEFORE looking for someone else? (By the way, my brotherin-law thinks they have a great marriage.) A few days later, my sister informed me that her “boyfriend” had broken things off with her. I am dumbfounded! My sister will be coming to spend

DEAR ABBY ADVICE some time with me soon, and I’m sure this subject is bound to come up again. How do I handle a situation I find so offensive? — Dumbstruck Down South Dear Dumbstruck: Handle it by telling your sister exactly what you have written to me. That should get the message across succinctly. Dear Abby: I’m a 15-year-old girl with five younger siblings. It’s tough to get along with everyone, but my 8-year-old sister, “Annie,” is especially difficult. She doesn’t get along with


anyone. Annie steals constantly. This has been going on since she could walk. She steals jewelry, makeup, toys, books and money. The only way to get these things back is by searching her room. Our relatives say she’ll grow out of this, but it happens every day. She destroys and breaks the things she steals — including projects and homework. My parents have tried everything — taking her things, grounding her, taking away privileges — yet Annie doesn’t stop. She lies and becomes frantic, and I’m worried something is wrong. None of us has ever behaved like her. What should we do? — Worried Sister in New Jersey Dear Worried Sister: The behav-


ior you have described could be symptoms of a serious emotional disturbance. It won’t be corrected until your parents understand what’s driving your sister to steal and lie. If Annie hasn’t already been evaluated by her pediatrician and a mental health professional, it should be done as soon as possible. Please show this to your parents. Dear Abby: I recently agreed to support my neighbor as she participated in a charity walk for breast cancer. Through a mutual friend I found out that my neighbor rode a free bus for a portion of the 13.1-mile walk. She has since tried to collect the “donation.” I have politely declined to pay, due to the circumstances. I feel I am justified since the donation was predicated on

her completion of the walk. What do you think? — Stickler in Colorado Dear Stickler: Is it possible that your neighbor rode the bus a portion of the way because she was unable to make it through the 13.1-mile walk? For heaven’s sake, it’s not as if she would be pocketing the money. Give her the donation in the form of a check made out to the charity. It’s for a worthy cause — and tax-deductible. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll exercise greater control over your personal life by playing your cards close to the vest. Be very cautious about making suggestions or issuing casual invitations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a package or card you need to send. It will require great organizational skills to pull this off — not because it’s difficult but because it’s so easy that its importance could go overlooked. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You get to call all the shots today. Meetings will begin when you say they begin, and they will end when you say they’re over. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have more charisma than you know what to do with today. Loved ones may gauge their social or family status by how much attention and affection they get with you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you have to lose control to realize what control really is. So if you experience a lapse in selfdiscipline, take a lesson from it. Ultimately, the mistake could be what keeps you faithful to your healthy routine. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You benefit from being slightly less available to others. You need time to yourself and also time for doing absolutely nothing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You benefit from spending time with different personalities, strengths, voices and mindsets. But at the end of the day, you want to talk with someone who sees things your way. You’ll have the best of both worlds today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are a superstar when it comes to debating, especially when you are arguing with yourself. Once you come to a conclusion, stick to your decision. Stand behind it or risk losing credibility. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You might state what you want, and very clearly. It won’t be enough today, though. You’ll need to make an extra effort to make sure that your needs are understood, believed and remembered. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The day will be productive as you follow up on your progress on all fronts. You’ll determine what has been done, make course corrections and plan for the next checkpoint. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve been too busy to worry about whether or not a certain person has called you back. You’re in a much stronger and more active place than you were two months ago. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are amassing a large body of work. Keep honing your style. Also, keep track of all you’ve done. Stay organized. It will help you to see the totality of your work thus far in list form. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 27). Your personal life blossoms as you exercise greater amounts of emotional control and yet are still as passionate and persuasive as ever. The next four weeks will introduce new friends and a better support system. You have a special connection with Libra and Cancer. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 19, 20 and 11.
