Police: ‘Hit man’ was trooper Michael Joseph Scerbo is escorted by police on Friday. Authorities say he tried to get a hit man to kill a witness in the Hugo Selenski trial.

Ex-convict charged in Selenski case Pike County, offered a “hit man” he met in the prison’s visitation room on March 29 to kill Paul Weakley, 42, a key prosecution witness against Selenski. The hit man was an undercover trooper, state police said. Scerbo was jailed with Weakley at the Pike County Correctional Facility in 2008 and was housed in a cell next to Selenski’s cell in the Restrictive Housing Unit at SCI-Retreat during 2011.

HANOVER TWP. – A plan to kill a witness in the often delayed double homicide trial of Hugo Selenski was foiled when an inmate at a state prison unknowingly presented the plot to an undercover state police trooper. Michael Joseph Scerbo, 39, had a few seconds of freedom Friday when he was released from the State Correctional Institution at Retreat, Newport Township, before he was arrested by state police at Wyoming and Luzerne County detectives.

WILKES-BARRE – The city fire department is hoping to secure more than $500,000 in funding from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant that would allow for the hiring of four additional firefighters. Fire Chief Jay Delaney said he recently applied for the Staffing for Adequate Fire Emergency Response grant, which provides Delaney funding to hire and recruit firefighters in departments nationwide. The Wilkes-Barre department is seeking the funds to help replenish its ranks. Over the past nine years, the city has lost 20 firefighters to retirement, but has only had the funding to replace five of them. “This will go a long way in adding positions we lost and were not able to fill,” Delaney said. Delaney said adding four positions would help public safety because it would allow him to more frequently have three engines in service, compared to two engines. He’s seeking $533,052 from

Only $86,000 of Luzerne County’s $2 million allocation for the Market Street Square train station renovation has been spent, leaving the option to cancel the remaining funding. The money would come from the county’s community develop-

ment business loan fund. County council recently agreed with county Manager Robert Lawton’s recommendation to help preserve the loan fund by halting plans to spend up to $1.5 million to demolish the Hotel Sterling in downtown WilkesBarre. The fund’s $11 million cash balance would shrink to about $9 million with the allocation to the station, also in the city’s downtown. Lawton said Friday his administration is reviewing all projected

expenditures from the loan fund, including the train station. He offered no further comment on the train station allocation. He reiterated the county must be frugal with the loan fund’s available balance in case developers of viable projects request loans in the future. The fund, set up years ago to provide low-interest economic development loans, is owed about $30 million from 54 loans. The fund may never reclaim $6 milSee STATION, Page 14A

Jennifer Roberts is accused of assaulting a woman over a personal relationship. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A former county sheriff deputy facing charges in a case where police say she harassed and assaulted a woman who had been seeing her former partner will stand trial in September, a county judge said Friday. Jennifer M. Roberts, 33, appeared in county court Friday with her attorney, Peter Paul Olszewski Jr., where they requested a trial on charges of burglary, simple assault, aggravated assault and harassment. Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr. said a trial will begin with jury selection on Sept. 24. Olszewski, a former county judge, also said a hearing to address motions in the case needs to be held. Among the requests he noted were: medical records, social media networking pages and evidence that the victim in the case, Sheila Sult, was on probation at the time of the alleged incident and may have been intoxicated.

In January Olszewski filed several requests to exclude evidence from the case, including an incident Roberts Roberts was allegedly involved in at a Mountain Top restaurant and at her former partner’s home in February 2011; protection-from-abuse petitions Roberts and her former partner filed against each other; any statements the two made to Luzerne County Sheriff John Gilligan and other requests. The case is being prosecuted by Senior Deputy Attorney General George Zaiser. According to a criminal complaint, police responded to a 911 hang up call at Sheila Sult’s Regent Street home on July 22 shortly after midnight. Police said Sult was intoxicated and visibly upset, with severe swelling under her eye, lumps on the back of her head and scratches on her neck. Sult said she was at the mall with Mary Jean Farrell and that Roberts began calling Farrell’s phone and texting her messages. A short while later, Sult said she posted some things about

the encounter on her social networking page on Facebook, and that Roberts became aware of the postings and called Farrell. Sult said Farrell went to her house and pleaded with her to take the postings down, but that she refused and asked Farrell to leave her house. While leaving, Farrell got a call from Roberts. Police said Roberts arrived at the house and when Sult started to open the door, Roberts pushed it open and attacked Sult. “Roberts proceeded to push Sult over a loveseat and violently punched Sult (in) the face and head,” arrest records say. Police said Farrell had to intervene to stop Roberts’ attack, and that Sult suffered a “violent blow” beneath her eye, causing swelling, blurry vision, a headache and lumps on the top and back of her head, as well as scratches on her neck and two broken necklaces. According to court papers, Sult, 45, was sentenced to the county’s Intermediate Punishment Program in January 2010 for 12 to 24 months, with the first 12 months on house arrest, stemming from a driving under the influence-related incident.

Nuangola studying 13 sewer bids Total bids range from $7 million to $16 million. Council rejects buying a trailer. By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA – The sewer authority reviewed contract proposals from 13 companies for its proposed sewer system project during a special meeting Friday night. The project is scheduled to commence in late May. While none of the bids was specified for acceptance, the proposal of the Anrich Company of Wayne appeared to be lowest for one major phase of the project: $4,827, 200 for work within Nuangola borough, and Duka Enterprises of Pottsville submitted $1,276,555 for the “Force Main” phase. Anrich’s bid also included $947,627 for what was described as “Alternative 1” and $382,200 for “Alternative 2”. Duka proposed a supplemental price of $1,606,150 as well as $529,200 for “Alternative 1.” The force main will be that section of piping which will travel from Nuangola into Rice Township and Dorrance Township to the treatment plant of

The Fulbright Program began in 1946, the same year as the first class to enter King’s College. The selection of Deegan and Guarino marks the first time in King’s history that two students were selected for Fulbright Awards in the same year. The last King’s student to receive a Fulbright award was Joseph Deegan, Michael’s brother, in 2008.

Last time to pitch for day care funds Children’s Association is latest stop By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

FORTY FORT – If Zachary Young knew the serious reason all the adults were intruding in his classroom, he certainly didn’t show it. The 5-year-old charmed United Way of Wyoming Valley President Bill Jones into crouching on the floor and helping sort various-sized wooden pegs into matching holes. Jones and the other adults were at Wyoming Valley Children’s Association for the last of four press conferences held this month to argue against proposed cuts in state spending for early education and day care subsidies. State Rep. Phyllis

Mundy, D-Kingston, has spearheaded the effort, but each event highlighted a different aspect of how she and many proponents contend spending on early education saves money later in a child’s life by catching and fixing potential problems during critical developmental years. Jones and a group of state lawmakers toured the association’s center, chatting with the children and in a few cases getting down to their level. When Jones and Zachary finished their task, Zachary and Ben Zielenski, 4, neatly rolled up the small rug they had been playing on and dutifully carried it to a pile of similarly rolled rugs,

thus demonstrating one of the important lessons teacher Jane Denon said the children learn here: Cleaning up and taking responsibility for the place. The children went back to learning while the adults headed to a separate room for the press conference. Mundy, a proponent of early childhood education funding for two decades, did the bulk of the talking, citing studies that show quality day care and early education programs reduce the chances a child will drop out of school, turn to a life of crime or end up on welfare as an adult. Providing quality day care for low-income families also helps parents stay in school or at

Work will disrupt traffic

As part of the ongoing Broad Street corridor project, work will begin along Washington Avenue from Broad Street to Putnam Street beginning Monday. Drainage installations, roadway widening, curbing and sidewalk work in this area is expected to last two weeks. This work was intended to be done under a detour situation 24 hours a day, but, in an effort to minimize disruption to local traffic, the work will be done while maintaining one lane of traffic. It is expected that this will be a highly congested area and motorists should either allow for extra travel time or avoid it altogether. Project work continues in the Terrace section of Hazleton for roadway widening and streetlight installation. Downtown work is now limited to signal preparation; sidewalk and curbing work will resume in the next few weeks. WILKES-BARRE

Bader Alsalamatt pours a cup of Arabian coffee Friday as he takes part in the Saudi Interest Club of Wilkes University event at the Henry Student Center.

Getting a taste of the Saudi world A Wilkes University group tries to bridge the gulf between cultures.

By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The makeshift tent complete with rug and pillows inside the second-floor ballroom of the Wilkes University student center was something Bader Alqahtani thought up. The soon-to-be mechanical engineer-

ing graduate and president of the school’s Saudi Interest Club put it there to introduce students to Arab cultures. “That was my idea,” said Alqahtani. With the help of the embassy of Saudi Arabia, the two-year-old club hosted approximately 100 people Friday night at its Arabian Nights program in the Henry Student Center. “The event was just to show people how we were, how we are and what we are going to be,” said Alqahtani.

The country has a rich history and much of it is foreign to people in the United States. Stereotypes persist of the people of Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Middle East and the program aimed to dispel some of them through pictures, words and food. During a brief presentation, Mamoun Bader, an associate professor of chemistry at Penn State Hazleton, spoke of his See SAUDI, Page 14A

Writing’s on the wall for jumbo-size ads Plains Township cracks down on bench signs violating last year’s law. By JOE DOLINSKY Times Leader Intern

PLAINS TWP. – Plains Township officials are targeting large advertisements on benches because some residents perceive them as eyesores and distractions to motorists. On Friday officials issued at least 20 citations for benches that they say exceed size restrictions put in place by an ordinance enacted last July. The township had allowed advertisers to display ads on park benches, but Commissioner Robert Sax said some surpass reasonable sizes. “They’re anything but park benches,” Sax said. “They’re billboards.” Sax added that the number of signs increased, seemingly overnight. “They’re like weeds,” he

said. Passed unanimously by the Board of Commissioners to crack down on the signs, the ordinance states that “signs affixed to benches may not exceed 18 inches high by 6 feet wide.” Most of the benches viewed by Sax and township zoning officials Friday were larger, including two on River Road which measured almost four times taller than the permitted height. Sax said residents have complained about the benches not only being a distraction to motorists, but an eyesore for people living nearby. Through the ordinance property owners will now have a say in whether the benches stay or go. That’s because the ordinance also states that owners of the advertisements must have the signature of the property owner when applying for a zoning permit for a bench. “That way the people that own the property have their

Incumbent state Rep. Karen Boback fought off a write-in campaign by Democrat Mark “Duke” Barrett of Dallas in Tuesday’s primary, and will not have an opponent on the ballot in the November election.

Running on the platform, “politicians shouldn’t run unopposed,” Barrett said Democrats planned to run another candidate who would have lived in the 117th under the state redistricting plan. Barrett stepped in when the state Supreme Court deemed the plan unconstitutional and ordered districts revert to the 2002 boundaries, moving the original candidate out of the district. In Luzerne County Boback received 509 Democratic write-in votes to 188 for Barrett. There were only 97 write-in votes cast in Wyoming County and 9 cast in Columbia County, according to unofficial election results, making it mathematically impossible for Barrett to win. Boback received more than the minimum of 300 write-in votes needed to appear on the Democratic ballot, meaning her name will appear on both ballots in November. Barrett was the only significant write-in candidate in a race for local public office, but there was a large number of write-in votes for seats on the Luzerne County Republican County Committee for election workers to count Friday, acting Election Director Tom Pizano said. Pizano attributed the volume to the failure of candidates to file petitions to appear on the ballot on time. “Part of it might have been the fact that the presidential primary moves the election up from the third Tuesday in May to the second to the last Tuesday in April,” Pizano said. “Just that the primary was weeks earlier than it normally is might have caught some of the candidates by surprise.” There were many ties in which candidates for municipal office received one vote each, Pizano said, adding that lots will be drawn to decide the winners in those races either next week or the following week. Otherwise, Pizano said, Tuesday’s primaries came off without major problems. “It was a low turnout, so we didn’t have as many problems with people not being registered,” he said. “Those problems were minimized.”

TV to post political ad rates online Broadcasters protested the federal action as damaging to their competitiveness. By BETH FOUHY Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Federal Communications Commission voted Friday to require broadcast TV stations to post online the advertising rates they charge political candidates and advocacy groups. The vote came despite strong opposition from many broadcasters, who have argued that making sensitive advertising rate information so publicly available will undermine stations’ competitiveness and give advertisers unfair leverage over how much they are willing to pay. A coalition of broadcasters put forth a compromise plan that would have required TV stations to put public files online while shielding information about political spending. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski rejected the compromise, noting stations already make available paper records

of what they charge political advertisers. He said there was no reason such information should be “stuck in a filing cabinet” in an online world. Genachowski and another Democratic commissioner, Mignon Clyburn, voted in favor of the new disclosure rules. Commissioner Robert McDowell, a Republican, voted in favor of an overall measure requiring stations to move their public files online but dissented on disclosing the political file. The National Association of Broadcasters, a lobbying group that represents television stations, criticized the vote. “By forcing broadcasters to be the only medium to disclose on the Internet our political advertising rates, the FCC jeopardizes the competitive standing of stations,” NAB executive vice president Dennis Wharton said in a statement. By law, television stations offer political candidates advertising rates that are much lower than those offered to other advertisers. Stations also allow the public to review

paper records of what they charge political advertisers. But disclosure advocates say the process of retrieving the information is far too cumbersome, requiring interested parties to show up at the television station during office hours and photocopy many pages of records. More important, advocates argue the public should have easy access to information about how much candidates and other groups are spending on television to lure voters. “The Commission’s action is an important victory for transparency and accountability in our nation’s public policy, making broadcasters’ public files truly public,” said Meredith McGehee, policy director of the Campaign Legal Center, which advocated for the change. The new rule will require stations to digitize and upload the information, in real time, to the FCC’s website, http:// www.fcc.gov. Network-affiliated stations in the top 50 markets will have six months to comply. For all others, the deadline is 2014.

House keeps lid on student loans

B R I E F

Women’s health cash diverted By ALAN FRAM Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republicans ignored a veto threat and overcame a rebellion by party conservatives to push a bill through the House Friday keeping interest rates on millions of federal student loans from doubling this summer. Lawmakers voted 215-195 to approve a bill that has become an election-year battle between the two parties over helping families in a persistently ailing

economy. The measure sparked debate over women’s health issues, too. The White House and most Democrats opposed the $5.9 billion bill because of how Republicans covered the costs: eliminating a preventive health care fund in President Barack Obama’s health care law. They say the program mostly benefits women, while Republicans call it a loosely controlled slush fund. “This is a politically motivated proposal and not the serious response that

the problem facing America’s college students deserves,” the White House wrote in a veto message shortly before the House vote. Democrats accused Republicans of supporting the effort to keep student loan interest rates low only because of political pressure from Obama. The House measure is destined to die in the Senate, where majority Democrats have written a version of the bill paid for by raising Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes on high-income owners of some privately owned companies, which GOP senators oppose. GOP lawmakers were pressured by

conservative groups like the Club for Growth to oppose the legislation because, they said, the government should not subsidize student loans. In the end, 30 Republicans voted no, while 202 voted yes. In the end, 165 Democrats opposed the bill, and 13 voted for it. The House bill would keep interest rates for subsidized Stafford loans at 3.4 percent for another year. Without congressional action, they would rise automatically to 6.8 percent on July 1, a condition set in a law Democrats pushed through Congress five years ago.

Tornadoes destroy 7 homes

At least seven homes and a hog farm were destroyed after rare nighttime tornadoes reportedly ripped through sparsely populated counties on the southeastern Colorado plains. Authorities say tornadoes were reported early Friday in Prowers, Kiowa and Bent counties, where the homes were destroyed. State emergency management division spokeswoman Micki Trost says a hog farm in Prowers County was also destroyed. The National Weather Service hasn’t confirmed the touchdowns yet but a team is assessing the damage. Overnight tornadoes are rare in Colorado, where cooler nighttime temperatures usually don’t create severe weather. AMSTERDAM

Tourists are ‘weeded out’

This country of canals and tulips is also famous for “coffee shops” where joints and cappuccinos share the menu. Now, the Netherlands’ famed tolerance for drugs could be going up in smoke. A judge on Friday upheld a government plan to ban foreign tourists from buying marijuana by introducing a “weed pass” available only to Dutch citizens and permanent residents. For many tourists visiting Amsterdam the image endures, and smoking a joint in a canal-side coffee shop ranks high on their to-do lists, along with visiting cultural highlights like the Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House. Worried that tourism will take a hit, the city’s mayor, Eberhard van der Laan, is hoping to hammer out a compromise with the national government, which relies on municipalities and local police to enforce its drug policies.

Shuttle flies into hearts of New Yorkers By MEGHAN BARR Associated Press

NEW YORK — In a city understandably wary of low-flying aircraft, New Yorkers and tourists alike watched with pure joy and excitement Friday as space shuttle Enterprise glided over the skyline on its final aerial journey before it becomes a museum piece. Ten years after 9/11, people gathered on rooftops and the banks of the Hudson River to marvel at the sight of the spacecraft riding piggyback on a modified jumbo jet that flew over the Statue of Liberty and past the skyscrapers along Manhattan’s West Side. “It made me feel empowered. I’m go-

ing to start crying,” Jennifer Patton, a tourist from Canton, Ohio, said after the plane passed over the cheering crowd on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the floating air-and-space museum that will be the shuttle’s permanent home. “I just feel like to have a plane fly that low over the Hudson, right past New York City, and to have everyone cheering and excited about it, shows that we don’t have fear, that we have a sense of ‘This is ours.”’ Onlookers bundled up on the blustery spring day along the piers on the West Side, cameras slung around their necks. The roar of the aircraft could

barely be heard over the howling winds. In truth, the camera angles on TV made it seem as if the shuttle was a lot closer to the buildings than it really was. The low-altitude flight was well-publicized, and few people were caught offguard. Not one person called 911 to report a low-flying plane, police said. That’s a striking contrast to what happened in 2009 when the Pentagon conducted a photo-op flyover in lower Manhattan by a passenger jet and F-16 fighter. The sight of the aircraft flying past the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan’s financial district set off a flood of 911 calls and sent office workers rushing

into the streets in panic. On Friday, the jet carrying the shuttle turned east and flew over central Long Island. Nassau County office workers looked out their windows and marveled as it passed over the Roosevelt Field Mall, near the spot where Charles Lindbergh took off for Paris in 1927. The shuttle will be taken to the Intrepid by barge in June and is scheduled to open to the public in mid-July. Space shuttle Discovery flew over the nation’s capital last week and will end up at the Smithsonian. Endeavor is going to Los Angeles, and Atlantis is staying at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.

Bin Laden now campaign issue Sandusky prosecutors Obama campaign implies Romney might not have gone after al-Qaida leader. By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent

WASHINGTON — The killing of Osama bin Laden, first presented as a moment of national unity by President Barack Obama, has become something else: a political weapon. Obama’s re-election campaign is portraying his risky decision to go after America’s top enemy as a defining difference with his Republican presidential opponent, suggesting Mitt Romney might not have had the guts to order a mission that put lives and perhaps a presidency at stake. Obama himself is opening up on the raid again — and opening the secretive White House Situation Room as an

interview stage — to hail the one-year anniversary. The broader goal for Obama, whether through campaign web videos or the trappings of the White House, is not to just to remind voters of an enormous victory on his watch. It is to maximize a political narrative that he has the courage to make tough calls that his opponent might not. “Does anybody doubt that had the mission failed, it would have written the beginning of the end of the president’s first term?” Vice President Joe Biden says in laying out Obama’s foreign policy campaign message. “We

know what President Obama did. We can’t say for certain what Governor Romney would have done.” The strategy underscores the fact that the Obama who ordered the raid as commander in chief is now seeking a second term as president. Obama’s campaign followed that Friday with a new web video questioning whether Romney would have taken the same path Obama did. If features a quote from a 2007 Romney interview in which he said it was not worth “moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.” That prompted Obama’s 2008 opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, to issue a scathing statement in which he accused Obama of playing politics with the bin Laden killing and “diminishing the memory of September 11th.”

rap defense’s subpoenas By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG— Jerry Sandusky’s lawyers have been improperly issuing subpoenas and using them for a fishing expedition to aid his defense against child sex-abuse charges, prosecutors said in a court filing Friday. The attorney general’s office asked a judge to have the subpoenas withdrawn and to force Sandusky’s lawyers to show how information they are seeking is relevant to the criminal case. Among their claims is that lawyers for the former Penn State assistant football coach sent subpoenas to police and others that improperly revealed the names of alleged victims. Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola, citing a gag order in the case, declined to comment on the merits of the prosecution motion, but said he would respond in a court filing next week. Attached to the prosecution

motion were examples of the subpoenas that provided a glimpse of defense strategy as the trial date nears. Sandusky From the state police, Amendola sought copies of an accident report involving the young man described as “Victim 1” by the investigative grand jury, and any documents that the state police have provided to the Freeh Group, the firm hired by Penn State to look into the Sandusky matter. He asked state Labor and Industry Secretary Julia Hearthway for unemployment, unemployment fraud and worker’s compensation records for certain individuals, but their names were to have been redacted in the copy posted on the court’s Sandusky case website.

Korea’s nuclear test site but no indication of when a detonation might take place. Earlier this month, South Korean intelligence reported digging of a new tunnel at the Punggye-ri site, which it took as a sign that North Korea was covertly preparing for a third nuclear test. The U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies provided The Associated Press on Friday with its analysis of a sequence of photos of the site obtained from a private satellite operator and taken between March 8 and April 18. The analysis estimates that 282,500 cubic feet of rubble have been excavated at the site, where the communist country conducted nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.

Sites listed for tossing old medications today Illegal street drugs will also be accepted, without any question or penalty. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

Today is the day to get rid of unused and unwanted prescription medications and other drugs that pose a danger to addicts and children. There will be 10 drop-off sites in the area to properly dispose of medications that have expired or

are not being used. Illegal street drugs such as heroin and cocaine also will be accepted, without penalty. The service is free of charge, no questions asked. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is coordinating the national Take-Back Prescription Drugs program across the nation. It is the third collection of painkillers since 2010. During a phone conference this week, federal officials said overdose deaths from prescription drugs outnumbered deaths

caused by heroin and cocaine. “Prescription painkillers were involved in more than 15,000 overdose deaths in 2009,” said Director Gil Kerlikowske of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. “That is more than cocaine and heroin combined.” Dr. Ileana Arias, principal deputy director at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, called prescription medication addiction an “epidemic.” About 15,500 people died from overdosing on prescription painkillers in 2009, 10 times more

than in 1999, Arias said. Michele Leonhart, DEA administrator, said more than 500 tons of prescription medications were collected in the first two Take-Back programs, which were held in September 2010 and April 2011. “This nationwide community effort prevents home medicine cabinets from becoming sources of dangerous and even deadly drugs,” Leonhart said. Prescription medications and other controlled substances can

ground when the helicopter was hit by a wind gust Friday morning. Police said that caused the right skid of the helicopter to catch on the ground, flipping the aircraft.

In addition to mandates on size and location, the ordinance also states that bench signs need to visibly display the name and current phone number of their owners.

“If we can’t find the owner, we’ll contact the advertiser,” Sax said. Sax said he will take Friday’s information to the next commissioners meeting on May 10. The board will decide what corrective action will be taken, which could include taking the signs down. “Right now, we’re taking baby steps,” Sax said. “But this is a problem we will combat.”

Tom Corbett campaigned on the promise to support early education funding, but cut money in this year’s budget and is cutting many programs another 5 percent to 9 per-

cent in his proposed budget for next year. She said money could come from various sources, including any budget surplus, levying sales tax on cigars and smokeless tobacco and a stronger state extraction fee on natural gas drilling. Mark Guydish can be reached at 829-7161.

Shot deadline extended

Pennsylvania students are getting additional time to comply with new school immunization requirements. State health officials on Friday extended the vaccination deadline until mid-May. Children who don’t get the required shots may not be able to attend school. New regulations that took effect in August require all students to receive second doses of vaccines for mumps and chicken pox. Seventh-graders also must get inoculations against meningitis, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. Students not in compliance when classes began last fall were given an eight-month grace period. That would have expired on Tuesday in many districts, but students now have two extra weeks. Pennsylvania’s new vaccine guidelines put the state in line with recommendations from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Trustee seats expiring

While the campaign for three Penn State alumni-elected Board of Trustees seats dominates the spotlight at the university, terms for six other board members also expire this year. In most years, the board’s makeup would barely register with Penn State’s half-million alumni, let alone the general public. But the board’s actions have come under scrutiny among some alumni since child sexual abuse charges were filed in November against retired assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Voting for the alumni-elected seats ends Thursday. The school has said there has already been record turnout. Of the six other expiring terms, two are trustees appointed by the governor. Another two will be elected next week to represent agricultural groups. The final two representing business and industry will be selected at next week’s trustees meeting. PITTSBURGH

Crowd ‘Grateful’ for Dead classics and Weir gems Founding member of Grateful Dead gives solo acoustic performance at Kirby Center. R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON For The Times Leader

As a founding member of the Grateful Dead and as leader of numerous bands since his original group disbanded in 1995, Bob Weir has long been a featured performer at many memorable concerts. But until this week, he had never done a solo acoustic tour. Weir spent 30 years as a guitarist and vocalist with the Grateful Dead, and formed his own side project RatDog just months before Jerry Garcia’s death in August 1995 brought an end to the beloved band. Since that time, he has toured with other Grateful Dead members in bands such as

AMANDA HRYCYNA/ FOR TIMES LEADER

Bob Weir performs his acoustic solo set Friday night at the F.M. Kirby Center for The Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre.

The Other Ones, The Dead and Furthur, and fronted more 800 shows with RatDog. He has also collaborated both on stage and on record with Bob Dylan, bassist Rob Wasserman, pianist Bruce

Hornsby (who also played numerous gigs with the Grateful Dead), saxophonist Branford Marsalis and Black Crowes’ singer Chris Robinson, to name just a few.

This time, it was just him and his acoustic guitar. Weir played the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts Friday, and the sold-out crowd was rewarded with solo acoustic versions of Grateful Dead classics, gems from his solo years and a few choice covers. The now 64-year-old musician strolled out at about 19 minutes past the scheduled 8 p.m. start time, took a seat at center stage and began with “Jack Straw,” the first of three consecutive Grateful Dead favorites. The audience cheered wildly at the first few notes of the instrumental intro, then heartily sang every word. Weir may have been the only one in the entire theater still seated as the first tune rang out. It was pretty much that way for the entire evening. Weir added some slide guitar for his second number, “New Minglewood Blues,” and deftly substituted the Wilkes-Barre lo-

cale for some of the song’s lyrics, much to the delight of those in attendance. The highlight of the early going was a stirring “Friend of the Devil,” a Grateful Dead song originally sung by Garcia. Weir led the boisterous former Deadheads (and those who wish they were) on a glorious walk down memory lane with his fine rendition of the “American Beauty”-era tune. Weir has always been one of the finest interpreters of Dylan, and he didn’t disappoint later in the first set with a majestic “When I Paint My Masterpiece.” That particular song also brought to mind Levon Helm (who died last week after a long battle with throat cancer) and his gorgeous version cut in the late-1960s with The Band. The hour-long first set ended with an epic “Lost Sailor.”

Weir began the second set with a joke that began, “A duck walks into a bar…” and then dished out more of his stellar songs, including a riveting “Playing in the Band,” which was one of the evening’s few numbers to feature an extended instrumental section. Weir’s first-ever solo acoustic tour was originally scheduled for August 2011 (without a performance at the Kirby Center), but was postponed due to “unforeseen circumstances,” as was reported at the time. The weeklong, six-show trek began three days ago in Knoxville, Tenn., and concludes Tuesday in Portland, Maine. All of the shows are sold out except the finale in Portland. Along with Grateful Dead alumni Phil Lesh, Weir will perform with Furthur in Philadelphia on July 7 and in Bethel Woods, N.Y., on July 15.

OTHER OPINION: AGENCY FRAUD

Time to do away with bloated GSA

EYOND THE outrage over the General Services Administration’s $823,000 regional 2010 conference in Las Vegas are scores of cases in which GSA fraud, waste and corruption cost taxpayers millions of dollars annually. And they raise fundamental questions about the agency’s future. Citing information from the GSA’s own inspector general’s office and court records, the Los Angeles Times reports there were 65 prosecutions of GSA employees and contractors for inflating costs or outright stealing between October 2010 and September 2011. Particularly egregious is a case wrapped up in October 2011 after a five-year probe. Seven GSA employees conspirEDITORIAL BOARD

The IG’s office recovered $376 million for taxpayers in the last fiscal year but can’t say for sure how much GSA fraud and waste cost annually. And that’s a signal that suggests more than some bogus “restructuring” is required. Thumbing its nose at taxpayers, the GSA has outlived its usefulness. What’s needed is an agency that fulfills GSA’s procurement and property management role – not one that makes a mockery of it. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Primary produced plenty of political predicaments TUESDAY’S PRIMARY election in Pennsylvania created plenty of winners and even more losers. Here’s a look at the biggest ones in each category: WINNER: Matt Cartwright. With a token Republican opponent in the fall and a strong Democratic district that will be in place for at least another decade, the 50-year-old attorney could be in office for quite a long time. Unless someone from his own party decides to mount a challenge in the future that could negate his Lackawanna County stronghold. Someone from, say, Wilkes-Barre or Easton. LOSER: Gov. Tom Corbett. His endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate, Steve Welch, finished third in a five-man race. The winner, Tom Smith, is a nearly lifelong Democrat from Armstrong County whose personal infusion of money to pay for a seemingly endless supply of campaign commercials undoubtedly made the difference. WINNER: State Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston. One of a small cadre of elected officials to formally endorse Matt Cartwright, she was front and center listening to Cartwright’s victory speech at the Hilton Scranton Hotel and Conference Center. And Cartwright gave her a shout out, which received big applause from the crowd of a few hundred. She’ll be in her own race this fall against Republican Aaron Kaufer, and having Cartwright out there speaking for

his letter addresses the recent spate of budget cuts with regard to teacher and educational program reductions statewide. Gov. Tom Corbett is attempting to limit deficits and tax increases. However, he has done a disservice to Pennsylvania education. School boards are ill-equipped to make changes, and as a result they merely reduce services. Many school board members lack the experience and education required to make necessary leadership decisions. The corruption that recently has rocked school boards is clear indication. School boards have become obsolete. I suggest legislative change to eliminate school boards and their taxing authority. Education can be managed on a state level. The central dispatch of busing and educational programs would save millions. Pennsylvania administers many services on a state level with authority vested in a department or agency.

sary expenditures. Upper-level jobs such as superintendent, assistant superintendent, director of pupil services, principal, assistant principal, purchasing agent, dean of students, athletic director and department coordinator are examples. These positions are associated with high salaries and duplication of responsibilities. The governor is correct that the burden can no longer be assumed by taxpayers. With central administration, purchasing power could reduce all costs. Buses could travel at full capacity by crossing what previously were district lines. More competitive bidding by contractors would ensue.

Congress to reauthorize the NFIP and send a clear signal to citizens, communities and private sector partners that the federal government will continue to support our nation’s efforts to manage flood risk.” The House of Representatives passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Tim Holden, D-St. Clair, reforming some aspects of the program in July that also extended authorization for a further five years, but the Senate has not taken action to address long-term funding since the last six-month extension. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, said he supports a long-term extension of the program and blamed partisan politics for the delay.

Senate majority leader Harry Reid on Thursday tried to get unanimous consent to reauthorize the program, but that attempt failed because of objections by Republican senators, Casey said. The Senate could reauthorize the program without voting if no Senator objects. “We should be voting on other things; this shouldn’t require a vote,” Casey said. “Whenever the issue of flood assistance comes up, or flood insurance, we often have gotten opposition because people say if this portion of the assistance isn’t paid for; we’re not going to have deficit spending to pay for it.

Records from the state Department of Corrections say Scerbo served a one-to-two-year prison sentence on a forgery conviction in Pike County. He served the maximum sentence that expired Friday. Weakley is serving a life sentence after pleading guilty to a federal charge of conspiracy to engage in racketeering that incorporated the May 2002, killings of Michael Jason Kerkowski, 37, and Tammy Lynn Fassett, 37, and the home invasion and robbery of Monroe County jewelry store owner Samuel Goosay in January 2003. Weakley is jailed at a federal prison near Tuscon, Ariz., according to the federal Bureau of Prisons website.

the two-year grant, which would fully-fund the salary and benefits of the requested firefighters. The city would be responsible for the salaries/benefits once the grant expires. The grant, which is available to paid and volunteer fire companies nationwide, is highly competitive, Delaney said. A total of $406 million was awarded to 446 departments nationwide from December 2010 to October 2011, according to FEMA. Of those, 21 grants totaling $7.9 million went Pennsylvania fire departments. Wilkes-Barre previously applied for a SAFER grant two years ago, but was not selected. Delaney said he believes this year’s application is much stronger due, in part, to the support he received from Mayor Tom Leighton, city council and state Sen. Bob Casey, who wrote a letter to FEMA on the department’s behalf.

Fassett is scheduled to begin in September in Luzerne County. According to the criminal complaint filed against Scerbo: Scerbo and Selenski had adjacent cells and were able to talk to one another in the restrictive housing unit at SCI-Retreat during the summer and fall 2011. Scerbo made contact with another inmate that has ties to a “known criminal gang based in Philadelphia,” with many gang associates incarcerated at numerous federal prisons in the country. Scerbo requested the inmate, who is not named in the criminal complaint, to arrange a visit with a gang associate to plot the murder of Weakley. Investigators allege in the criminal complaint Scerbo met with the “hit man” and offered $1,000 to carry out Weakley’s death. Scerbo told the “hit man” that Weakley was a “rat” and should be murdered two months before the start of Selenski’s trial in September, the criminal complaint says. Scerbo had no comment when he was escorted by investigators to his arraignment. Investigators would not say if Selenski will be charged in the plot to kill Weakley. In his letter, Casey noted the fire department was tasked with evacuating 18,000 of the city’s 43,000 residents during the September 2011 flood. “This critical function underscores the need for adequate staffing,” Casey said. Delaney said he believes Casey’s support will enhance the city’s chances of securing one of the grants. “It’s an extremely competitive process to get a SAFER grant. Having legislative support will weigh in at some point in the process,” he said. While it’s never won a hiring grant, the city has been successful in obtaining other grants offered by FEMA that fund equipment purchases, Delaney said. The department received a grant of $46,898 for a new breathing air system, which fills air tanks used by firefighters, that will be installed in about two weeks. The grant covered 90 percent of the system’s cost. The city previously received federal grants that helped purchase helmets and a new aerial ladder, he said.

lion loaned to the nonprofit CityVest for the Sterling, but most of the remaining repayments are expected over time, in some cases a decade from now. Past county commissioners voted in October to fund rehabilitation of the train property, which is owned by the county Redevelopment Authority. The county gave the authority $6.1 million five years ago to purchase the 143-year-old former Central Railroad of New Jersey station from businessman Thom Greco and devise a development plan. The 6-acre complex at the corner of Market Street and WilkesBarre Boulevard, bought for $5.8 million, also includes a strip mall. The authority’s original renovation design featuring an eatery, banquet areas and possible exhibit area was scrapped when no additional government funding or private investors surfaced. The scaled-back version funded by the county would restore the station to create office space and

remove non-historical additions. Commissioners said rental income from the new tenants -- the county’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, Charles T. Adams Senior Center and the Penn State Extension – could be used to maintain the property. Officials said the brick train station, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is in good condition, though the complex has attracted stray cats and the homeless. Stained-glass windows and other valuables were moved to another location for safekeeping. The authority spent the $86,000 on structure evaluation and renovation design, which is about 90 percent complete, officials said. A stainless steel dining car on the property will be auctioned at 11 a.m. on May 19. The car was part of the Joe Palooka diner once housed at the site. L.A.G.

before,” he continued. “An emergency is an emergency. We just make that funding available.” The program insures more than 5.5 million homes against flooding, which is not typically covered by standard homeowner’s insurance. The program is run by FEMA, though most flood policies are written on the agency’s behalf by private insurance firms, with FEMA pooling premiums and paying claims as needed. According to FEMA, the National Association of REALTORS estimates a lapse in authorization could jeopardize 40,000 mortgage closings per month for properties in areas designated by the government as having a high risk of flooding. Bob Rundle, President of the

Greater Wilkes-Barre Association of Realtors, said many banks require flood insurance for homes purchased in Greater WilkesBarre and that a lapse could have some local impact, but it would be minor. “I think it will have a little effect,” Rundle said. “I don’t think it’s going to be a major disaster.” Casey said failing to provide long-term support for the program could add to the anxieties of those affected last year’s floods. “Without getting the reauthorization done the victims of floods can’t have the peace of mind to know that at least one thing is certain; that a flood insurance program that has helped families across the country is there for them,” Casey said.

HERSHEY – The Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins lost more than the game Friday. Their power play went missing as well. The Penguins were blanked on nine power play opportunities while Hershey connected on three of its four chances to take Game 4 of their opening round Calder Cup playoff series 4-1.

On Friday, they did it with a tally late in the first period and another midway through the second. On Wednesday, the Penguins spotted the Bears a two-goal lead in the first period.

The first 50 picks had passed. Six other defensive tackles had been drafted, including a rival from the Big Ten. Devon Still was one of just two prospects in attendance at the NFL draft whose name had not been called. Needless to say, the Penn State All-American wasn’t looking too pleased. All of it figures to make the chip on Still’s shoulder a little bit bigger in his rookie season with Cincinnati.

Fleener, Luck together again By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — Coby Fleener heard his name, grabbed his phone and immediately contacted his new teammate in Indianapolis — and old teammate from Stanford. The overnight wait paid off for the Stanford tight end. He’s reuniting with his college quarterback, a guy named Andrew Luck. Fleener wasn’t chosen in the first round of the NFL draft, in which Luck was the top selection. He got a nice consolation prize Friday night when the Indianapolis Colts grabbed him with the second pick of the second round. Among the other notable selections on the second day of the draft were: Oregon running back LaMichael James by San Francisco, Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson by Seattle and Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw by Baltimore. Chances are very good Fleener will become a starter — and a main target — for Luck in Indianapolis. “I just sent him a text message that had a lot of exclamation points in it,� said Fleener, who had 10 touchdown catches last season and 18 for his career in Stanford’s prodigious offense.

AUTO RACING

Foreclosure N has come back super strong as a four-year old for trainer Chris Ryder and he looks to continue his winning ways in tonight’s $25,000 Open Pace. The son of Rocknroll Hanover is a perfect two-for-two thus far in the early 2012 campaign, including a spectacular effort in the slop last Saturday at the Downs in 1:51.2. He seems to have plenty in reserve, and tonight I look for him to unleash some of that power, with driver Jim Morrill controlling the reins, in what may be a banner tenth race feature.

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay fields a ground ball hit by the Chicago Cubs’ Tony Campana in the first inning of a game Friday in Philadelphia.

Maholm, Castro lead Cubs past Phillies

Astros 6, Reds 4

CINCINNATI — Jose Altuve drove in two runs with a triple and a double, leading Wandy Rodriguez and the Houston Astros past the Cincinnati Reds. Jed Lowrie also had two hits for the Astros, who have won consecutive games for the first time since a three-game winning streak April 7-9. Houston hit .316 during three games in Milwaukee this week and had 14 hits in a 7-5 win in the series finale Wednesday.

Braves 6, Pirates 1

ATLANTA — Tommy Hanson allowed one run in six innings, Dan Uggla and Chipper Jones came through in a four-run seventh, and the streaking Atlanta Braves defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Braves won for the 13th time in 16 games after an 0-4 start — their worst since 1988. Diamondbacks 5, Marlins 0

MIAMI — Joe Saunders pitched a three-hitter, Jason Kubel tied a career best with four hits and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent Miami to its sixth straight loss with a victory over the Marlins. Kubel extended his hitting streak to 10 games, his average over that stretch going from .200 to .333. Miguel Montero drove in three runs and Aaron Hill homered for Arizona. Cardinals 13, Brewers 1

ST. LOUIS — Jake Westbrook gave up one run over seven innings and St. Louis exploded for eight runs in the third inning in a win over the Milwaukee Brewers. St. Louis, which set a season high both for runs in an inning and in a game, won for the eighth time in its last 12. Westbrook (3-1) gave up seven hits, struck out five and did not walk a batter. He has allowed two earned runs or less in all four of his starts this season. Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo (1-2) allowed eight earned runs in two innings. trytype

Nats call up top prospect OF Harper By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Sports Writer

Bryce Harper tends to do things ahead of schedule, so it should surprise no one he’s already heading to the major leagues. The 19-year-old outfielder, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft, will be recalled by the Washington Nationals from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday. Widely regarded as baseball’s top prospect, Harper will meet the Nationals in Los Angeles, where they are playing the Dodgers, and take the roster spot of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who is going on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder. “Suffice it to say, this isn’t the coming-out party for Bryce that we had in mind,” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Friday on a conference call with reporters. “This isn’t the optimal situation developmentally.” Harper skipped his final year of high school, earned his GED, then played on season of junior college baseball at the College of Southern Nevada to become eligible for the draft to get a head-start on his professional career. He signed a fiveyear, $9.9 million contract, including $6.5 million in signing bonuses, with the Nationals in August 2010. Rizzo has stated repeatedly that he thinks all young players should spend time at each level of the minors before moving to the big leagues. So while Nationals manager Davey Johnson wanted Rizzo to consider letting Harper skip Triple A, the team sent him to Syracuse after he hit .286 in spring training this year. But with their top two hitters — Zimmerman and left fielder Michael Morse, who’s been out all season with a problematic back muscle — sidelined by injuries, the team decided to bring up Harper now. “We still have a very good and committed developmental plan for Bryce in place. I still believe very passionately in the plan, and am committed to it. But it was expedited by the circumstances,” Rizzo said. “We felt that we needed to bring in an impactful, left-handed bat that could play the corner outfield.” Rizzo headed to Rochester, N.Y., this week to watch Harper play in three games for Syracuse — and liked what he saw, including how Harper fared in the field.

Betances earns first win with solid effort vs. Pigs

The Times Leader staff

ALLENTOWN – Dellin Betances allowed one hit in five innings to pick up his first win of the season, and Craig Tatum hit a game-winning two-run homer in the second inning as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees defeated the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs 3-1 on Friday night. A two-out walk top Brandon Laird got the Yankees’ big inning going. Tatum then launched a home run to right, giving the Yankees a 2-1 lead. The Yankees added an insurance run in the fifth inning, manufactured by Doug Bernier. The shortstop walked, stole second and took third on a throwing error by Iron Pigs catcher Erik Kratz. Bernier scored easily on a double to right off the bat of Kevin Russo. Russo finished with three of the five Yankees hits in the game. Betances allowed the first two batters he faced to reach base, then silenced Lehigh Valley from there. Scott Posednik

Morrash struck out six and walked just one as the Mohawks (4-3) won their third straight game. He also went 2-for-3 with a double at the plate. Matt DeMarco added two hits with an RBI.

New bats sweet treat for pitchers

By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

The Wyoming Valley Conference baseball season began with new bats, a nohitter and this comment from a coach. “They’re a pitcher’s dream,” Coughlin’s Moe Rodzinak said of the BBCOR bats after his ace, Josh Featherman opened league play with a no-no. Now past the halfway point of the 2012 WVC season, we can start to look for any trends. The expectation was that hitting stats – particularly power numbers – would be down with the new bats, which have a smaller sweet spot and less of a trampoline effect on the ball. “You see it,” Wyoming Valley West coach John Milius said after a 1-0 win earlier this month. “A couple guys hit the ball fairly well and they just go no place. You have to get it square or that’s it.” As it happens, Thursday was one of the highlights of the season for area pitchers as Valley West’s Matt Zielen tossed a no-hitter of his own. Berwick’s Kyle Miller didn’t allow a hit through six innings before finishing with a two-hitter, matching Wyoming Area’s Dylan Maloney who had a two-hit shutout. So let’s go to the numbers. Keep in mind that the sample size – just shy of one month – is not nearly big enough to draw any definitive conclusions. WVC teams are batting a collective .270 so far this season. That’s more than 20 points from the previous four seasons since the league moved to a two-division format following the Catholic school merger. End-of-season league averages were .293 in 2011, .290 in 2010, .296 in 2009 and .302 in 2008. Most glaring is the expected drop-off in home runs. In each of those previous four seasons, the league as a whole topped 100 homers, with an average of 116 in that time.

N O T E B O O K The 2012 season will likely see less than half of that. Through Thursday’s games, there were just 20 home runs. That follows the dramatic plunge seen in the college ranks last year because of the switch in bats. Dallas coach Ken Kashatus said before the season he believes that as companies have a chance to improve their bats under the new specifications, the numbers could go back up. Numbers are one thing. Can pitchers tell there is a noticeable difference as well? “I love it,” said Valley West’s Tommy Alexander, who has a one-hitter under his belt this season. “The sweet spot’s only that big on that bat. So, I mean, you throw a two-seam (fastball) on the hands on anyone, they really gotta get around on that to get it on the barrel. “It works to an advantage for a pitcher. It really does.” Alexander said it has definitely changed his approach to facing a lineup, particularly in his pitch selection. Because of those shrinking sweet spots on the bats, the movement on a two-seam is that much more valuable. On a macro level, however, not everyone sees the new bats as any kind of revolutionary change. “You know what, to be honest with you, I don’t see that much of a difference at our level,” Tunkhannock coach Gary Custer said after the first few weeks of league play. “You’ve still got to make contact. I think a good hitter can hit with (any bat).” For his part, Alexander said it’s important not to get too caught up in the equipment at any point during the season. “It’s still the same game,” Alexander said. “You still have to improve yourself to get better. The teams are still good.

Everybody still has a solid ace. The bats are the only change.”

Crestwood overcomes Valley West’s 15-hit attack

Division I East It’s anyone’s race at this point as the crossover games did not treat the East favorites – Coughlin, Hazleton Area and Pittston Area – kindly. The Cougars have dropped three straight to opponents from the other side of the Susquehanna to fall a half-game behind the Crusaders and Patriots, who both play today. Holy Redeemer, after dropping six straight to open league play, has won three of its last four and will once again be a dangerous draw in the District 2 Class 2A bracket.

KINGSTON – Crestwood scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning and held on for a 6-4 victory over Wyoming Valley West in Wyoming Valley Conference softball Friday. The Comets (5-4 WVC) made the most of their seven singles, with Ashley Casem delivering a hit in the final inning. Wyoming Valley West (2-7) had 15 hits, including four from Casey Dolan and three from Leanne Dellarte.

Division I West Valley West has opened up a two-game lead with five left to play. That, perhaps, isn’t a surprise. More interesting is that neither of the two teams tied for second place is Tunkhannock. Both Wyoming Area and Berwick have come on strong in the middle portion of the schedule to improve to 6-3. After starting off 3-0, the two-time defending district champion Tigers have lost four of five and head into a tough game at Pittston Area today with a .500 record.

Crestwood 6, Valley West 4 (9 inn.)

Division II Plenty of games still left to be played, but the Division II crown could be all but decided on Tuesday as Hanover Area hosts Lake-Lehman. The first-place Hawkeyes knocked off Lehman in their first meeting and a second win would make them heavy favorites to claim their third title under coach Mike Zapotoski. A win by the Black Knights, however, could set up a potential third meeting in a special playoff game for first place at the end of the regular season.

walked to start the game and stole second base. Kevin Frandsen followed with a double to right to give the Iron Pigs a 1-0 lead. Belances walked four and struck out three while improving his record to 1-2. Kevin Whelan fanned two and gave up a hit in the ninth for his sixth save. The Yankees’ home stand at Lehigh Valley continues tonight at 6:35.

Jason Dufner takes Zurich Classic lead

Hawkeyes defend their home turf

AVONDALE, La. — Jason Dufner moved into position for yet another bid to win his first PGA Tour title, shooting a 7-under 65 on Friday to take the second-round lead in the Zurich Classic. Dufner lost a playoff to Keegan Bradley last year in the PGA Championship for one of his three runner-up finishes in 163 winless starts on the PGA Tour. He capped his bogey free round with a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th to reach 12 under at TPC Louisiana. Russell Knox, John Rollins and Ken Duke were tied for second. Knox shot 64, Rollins 66, and Duke 68. Greg Chalmers holed out from 137 yards for an eagle on the par-4 first hole and finished with a 64 to join Steve Stricker and Ernie Els at 10 under. Striker and Els shot 68. Defending champion Bubba Watson had his second straight 71 to make the cut by a stroke in his first tournament since his playoff victory in the Masters. Second-ranked Luke Donald was 6 under after a 65. Dufner opened with a 3-foot birdie putt on No. 1, and added three straight birdies on the par-4 fifth and sixth holes and the par-5 seventh. He also

birdied the par-5 11th. He’s second on the tour in pre-cut scoring, but is 98th in third rounds and 108th in final rounds. He shared the 36-hole lead at the Masters with rounds of 69-70, but closed with consecutive 75s. Knox, a Nationwide Tour graduate playing in his ninth tournament, had seven birdies, an eagle and a bogey. Stricker had four consecutive birdies to tie Dufner, then missed a 2-foot birdie putt on the 11th that would have given him sole possession of the lead. He stumbled home with two bogeys. Donald also holed out from the fairway on the first hole, marking the first two eagles on the hole since the tournament was first played at the course in 2005, although the event moved to English Turn in 2006 following Hurricane Katrina. John Daly, playing on a sponsor exemption, missed the cut. He followed his opening 73 with an 80.

projected as a top-20 overall pick in the draft. But injuries slowed him toward the end of the season, with a case of turf toe forcing him to skip the Senior Bowl in January. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock questioned Still’s motor on the air and said he thought Still’s stock dropped because of inconsistency. “A year ago, I thought Devon Still could be a top-20 pick,” Mayock said. “But his tape was indifferent and inconsistent. … Half the time you’d see tape that you can buy into and say that he’s the real deal.” Mayock softened his criticism a few moments later, saying that Still was hurt by not being able to change that perception by playing at the Senior Bowl, calling him “a gifted young man who played a lot of great football in Happy Valley.” Indeed, Still was a co-captain at Penn State as a senior, earned

It starts Saturday with the Chicago Bulls, the overall No.1seed, hosting the Philadelphia 76ers. Then it’s Miami against New York, with James and Anthony just a couple of the big names in a series loaded with star power. And with history. The teams met four straight years from 1997-00, the Knicks winning three of the series and earning a draw in the fights. The animosity doesn’t exist between these players — James and Anthony have known each other since high school before entering the league together in 2003 — but you bet it’s still around for the organizations and fans. “Once the ball tips off, it’s a series that we’re both trying to win,” Miami’s Dwyane Wade said. “Obviously it makes great headlines and makes everyone in the organization really tuned in to what’s going on. It’s kind of like they’re looking at us like, ‘All right, go get it done for us.’ But when the ball tips off, it’s another game against a very talented opponent.” Also Saturday, the Indiana Pacers host the Orlando Magic, who playoff hopes seem to have left along with Dwight Howard, before the Mavericks visit the Thunder in the nightcap. Dallas eliminated Oklahoma City in five games last year on its way to the NBA championship. The teams ended up in the first round this season after the Thun-

a spot on 10 All-America teams and was named the Big Ten’s defensive player of the year. Still was also named a finalist for the Outland and Nagurski trophies, as well as the Bednarik Award. He was second in the Big Ten in solo tackles for loss (15.0) and tied for fifth in overall tack-

les for loss. But three defensive tackles were selected ahead of him in Thursday’s first round. Three more were picked before him Friday, including Michigan State’s Jerel Worthy, whom Still beat out for several honors last season.

der fell into the No. 2 seed with a late-season stumble, and the Mavericks could never put together a run to move up. “It’s all we’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” Thunder All-Star Kevin Durant said. “It’s going to be a tough, tough series for us playing against the reigning champions. They cause so many problems on the offensive end and defensive end for us.” The other four series start Sunday. San Antonio hosts Utah in the opener, followed by the Lakers against Denver. Boston visits Atlanta before Memphis welcomes the Clippers in the two 4-5 series at night. The Celtics have the higher seed as Atlantic Division champions but the Hawks get homecourt advantage based on their better record. The Grizzlies snatched home-court advantage from the Clippers by winning their final six games while Los Angeles dropped three of its final four. Yet Chris Paul and Blake Griffin say they aren’t scared of the rugged Grizzlies, who were a game away from the West finals last year and are a trendy pick to get there this time. “It’s just like any other NBA team,” Griffin said. “They’ve got good bigs, they’ve got good guards. You’ve got to be ready to play. We’re not intimidated by them by any means.” Stern has said the league didn’t know what to expect when it returned from a nearly fivemonth lockout that shortened the season to 66 games. Instead

of a backlash from fans, TV ratings were up and attendance held steady. Most importantly, the fear of a lengthy injury list from too many games crammed together was overestimated. Howard, Chauncey Billups (Clippers), Jeremy Lin (Knicks) and Al Horford (Hawks) won’t be around to help their teams, at least in this round, but Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose are ready to go after battling injuries down the stretch. And now they get the marathon playoff schedule instead of the 120-day sprint of this regular season. Often dreaded for how spread out the first round is, four games in nine days, such as the Heat and Knicks have, now will be welcomed by teams who had to play four times in five nights during the season. Coaches will love it, a chance for the practice time that was rarely available to them. And veteran teams like the Celtics and Spurs could thrive with the extra time off. The Spurs won the 1999 title after the lockout and hope they have one more run in the Tim Duncan era. They never recovered after Manu Ginobili was hurt in the regular-season finale last year and were knocked off by Memphis in one of the NBA’s biggest postseason upsets. They’re healthy now and rolling into the postseason, just as they did in ’99, after winning their final 10 games. “We weren’t playing well at the end of last year. Manu getting injured, that hurt us, too,” Duncan said.

chaels. Ryu shot 67, Michaels 68, and Wright 69. BALLANTINE’S CHAMPIONSHIP SEOUL, South Korea — Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger shot a course-record 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Australia’s Marcus Fraser after the second round of the Ballantine’s Championship. Wiesberger had a 7-under 137 total on the Blackstone course in the event sanctioned by the European and Asian tours. Fraser, the 2010 Ballantine’s champion, shot a 67. Of the 26 players invited to attend the draft in person, only Still and LSU receiver Rueben Randle were still on the board when the Bengals made their pick. Still becomes the 10th defensive lineman trained by Penn State assistant coach Larry Johnson to be drafted into the NFL and the eighth to be taken in the first two rounds. He follows Jared Odrick (first round, 2010), Aaron Maybin (first round, 2009), Jay Alford (third round, 2007), Tamba Hali (first round, 2006), Jimmy Kennedy (first round, 2003), Michael Haynes (first round, 2003), Anthony Adams (second round, 2003), Courtney Brown (first overall, 2000) and Brad Scioli (fifth round, 1999). The draft continues at noon today with the final four rounds. Penn State players who could possibly be selected include defensive end Jack Crawford, cornerback D’Anton Lynn, guard Johnnie Troutman, receiver Derek Moye, linebacker Nate Stupar and corner/return specialist Chaz Powell.

“I expected to be on a team where I wasn’t familiar with the offense or the quarterback. I can’t wait to get started, to be honest with you.” Indy not only parted with four-time MVP quarterback Peyton Manning this year, but also lost tight end Jacob Tamme to free agency and isn’t expected to bring back injuryravaged veteran Dallas Clark. “For me, getting to play with him the past couple of years, it is speed, he is dynamic,” Luck said. “Anytime we crossed the 50-yard line it seemed like we just said, ‘Coby, go run. Go run past the safeties.’ Hopefully it continues to work out.” The Rams actually used their own pick to begin the second round, selecting Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick. St. Louis traded down twice in the first round the previous night, accumulating several extra picks and also taking LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers 14th overall. In the second-round spot they earned for going 2-14 in 2011, the Rams took a wideout from an FCS powerhouse. The 6-foot-4 Quick had a strong Senior Bowl, showing he could play at the highest college level and helping his stock in the draft. Upshaw of the national champion Crimson Tide was chosen by Baltimore, the Ravens’ first pick of this draft.

King’s fell to visiting Fairleigh Dickinson in the opener of a three-game Freedom Conference series after the Devils used a three-run top of the seventh to seal the win. Eric Bohem led the way for the Monarchs, going 3-for-4 with a walk, two runs and an RBI. Rob Lemoncelli and Anthony Re each finished 2-for-5 with a run and an RBI. Delaware Valley 13, Wilkes 2

Host Delaware Valley used an eight-run fourth inning to open up a double-digit lead on its way to a win over visiting Wilkes. Tay Sidler and Bobby Schappel led the Colonels on offense, as each went 3-for-4 with Schappell providing two RBI for Wilkes. Matt Ruch and Carmen Lopresto added two hits apiece.

Misericordia tied the school record for wins (30-6, 16-3) after defeating Eastern. Kenny Durling led the Cougars with his 3-for-5 performance at the dish and finished with two home runs and five RBI, while Ryan Cacchioli went 4-for-6 with four RBI and three runs. Eastern was able to score six runs in the bottom of the ninth, but Gabe Noyalis came in with one runner on and forced a ground ball to finish the game and earn the save.

the power play – their seventh -and Grant said they missed an opportunity to seize control and mount a comeback. “To get that goal in the second should’ve sparked us a little more than it did,” he said. “We had to come out in the third and really, really step it up. Unfortunately we didn’t do that.” The Bears power play stepped up for a third time when a miscue by Eric Tangradi led to a 3-1 Hershey lead. Tangradi was whistled for unsportsmanlike conduct at the midway point of the third period after he shot the puck at Hershey’s Jacob Micflikier after the whistle. “We can use some better judgment there,” Hynes said. On the ensuing power play, Ryan Potulny launched a slapshot from the top of the slot that Boyd Kane deflected past Thiessen for the two-goal lead. The Penguins got another power play opportunity with seven minutes left but couldn’t get the puck past Dany Sabourin, who stopped 22 of the 23 shots he faced. Picard said Thiessen wasn’t at fault for Friday’s loss. “First of all, we have to do a better job to not get in those penalty kill situations,” he said. “We have to be more disciplined. You can’t blame the goalie for those point blank shots with traffic in front of the net. We have to do a better job.” The Penguins look forward to

doing just that tonight back in front of their home crowd. Williams said the quick turnaround between games will be a benefit. “With playoff hockey when you have a game back-to-back that’s a good thing. You can forget about the game you had the night before and you have a chance to redeem yourself within 24 hours,” Williams said. “If we can establish our game first and have our fans behind us, I like our chances.” Notes • The Penguins played without D Brian Strait and F Nick Petersen. Hynes said Petersen missed the game due to personal reasons, while Strait is day-to-day with an injury and is possible for tonight. • Friday’s loss drops the Penguins to 1-12 all-time in the postseason against the Bears at the Giant Center.

Peace Of Mind.

By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Moose Skowron, a five-time World Series champion and one of only two players to hit three home runs in Game 7s, died Friday of congestive heart failure at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Ill. He was 81. Skowron helped the New York Yankees win four titles in the 1950s and 1960s. “There weren’t many better guys than Moose,” said former teammate Yogi Berra, the only other player with three Game 7 homers in the Series. “He was a dear friend and a great team man. A darn good ballplayer, too.” Skowron became a star first baseman with the Yankees and went on to appear in eight All-Star games over six seasons. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig called him “an integral part of the wonderful Yankee teams of Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris.” “He was a wonderful storyteller and an important link to a great era in baseball history,” Selig said. After Skowron’s playing career he returned to Chicago, where he was born and had worked for the WhiteSoxsince1999intheteam’s community relations department, making appearances. “We all have lost a dear, dear friend today,” White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf said. “While Moose may have become a star in New York with the Yankees, he was a Chicagoan through and through. I certainly will miss his priceless stories about Casey Stengel, Roger Maris, Hank Bauer and of course, his good friend, Mickey Mantle. ... My guess is that right now Mickey, Roger, Hank and Moose are enjoying a good laugh together.” Skowron played for the Yankees from 1954-62, then won a fifth title with Los Angeles in the first season after he was dealt to

the Dodgers for Stan Williams. He hit .282 in 14 major league seasons with 211 home runs and 888 RBIs, also spending time with the expansion Washington Senators (1964), the White Sox (1964-67) and the California Angels (1967). He was an All-Star from 1957-61, appearing in both games in 1959 and 1960, then was picked one final time in 1965. He was beloved by Yankees fans for his clutch performances in three World Series Game 7s. He hit a seventh-inning grand slam off Roger Craig in a 9-0 win over Brooklyn in 1956, and a three-run homer against Lew Burdette in the eighth inning of a 6-2 win over Milwaukee in 1958. He also had a leadoff drive in the fifth inning off Vernon Law in 1960, when the Yankees overcame a four-run deficit at Pittsburgh to take a 7-4 lead only to lose 10-9. Skowron had a .293 World Series average with eight homers and 29 RBIs in 39 games. Born William Joseph Skowron on Chicago’s North Side, he said he was given the nickname Moose when he was 7 after his grandfather gave him a haircut that caused friends to call him “Mussolini” — after the Italian fascist leader. The nickname was shortened to Moose.

After attending Weber High School, Skowron went to Purdue on a football scholarship and signed with the Yankees. He hit .304 or better in each of his first four major league seasons and five times overall. He topped 20 homers four times but never reached 100 RBIs, getting a high of 91 in 1960. “Moose could really hit the baseball — especially home runs to right field,” former roommate Bob Turley said. “I was glad Moose was on my team because he always wanted to win.” In addition to his Game 7 feats, Skowron had an RBI single in the 10th inning of Game 6 in1958 that gave the Yankees a two-run lead and they held on to beat the Braves 4-3. “Moose will always be remembered as being one of the key members of the Yankees’ dynasties in the ‘50s and early ‘60s,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said. “He was a winner in every sense of the word, and someone the Yankees family cared deeply for.” He is survived by wife Lorraine (nicknamed Cookie), daughter Lynnette, sons Greg and Steve, brother Edward and four grandchildtren. Funeral arrangements were pending.

RICHMOND, Va. — Two weeks of ho-hum racing has left NASCAR fans starving for some on-track excitement, so a Saturday night stop at Richmond International Speedway couldn’t have come at a better time. Short track racing traditionally produces some of NASCAR’s best racing, and the .75-mile oval at Richmond is the perfect venue for the bumping and banging that spices up the show. And there’s been a shortage of that of late. The last two races, at Texas and Kansas, had a combined five cautions and four of them were for debris. It makes for long green-flag runs and spread-out fields, with a caution being the only hope for bunching the cars back together. Drivers seem to prefer that clean style of racing, but fans want more drama — some may even suggest they want wrecks — and they’ve been vocal the last month about their disappointment in the ontrack product. NASCAR’s top drivers are aware of the dilemma, and go into Saturday night’s race wondering if Richmond will satisfy the fans. “I will not go down that path, I do not think it’s right to say we needwrecks.That’sjustamessedup thing to say,” Carl Edwards said Friday. “I think we need good racing, and I think if you’ve got guys who are able to race together, and are able to come through thefieldbecausetheircaris better and they can actually pass people, then you are going to get some excitement. “And the excitement might come in the form of wrecks.

dega to Darlington and then the $1 million All-Star race at Charlotte. So, regardless of how drivers, teams or the sanctioning body views the present state of the racing, the on-track product could heat up without any effort. Still, it’s made for interesting debate the past week, and drivers have varying opinions on why the racing has been so clean. It dates to the March 25 race at California, which went caution-free until rain brought out the yellow on Lap 125, and ultimately halted the race four laps later. Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson believes the tracks are the problem, with NASCAR making too many stops at downforce tracks. “I think the venues play a larger part in the excitement, the action, and even the cautions,” he said. “I don’t think we can look at the garage area for the next change. I think the change comes with the venues. The change comes with the resurfacing of tracks and reconfiguring tracks to make more side-by-side racing. “And then there’s also the argument of tracks that create more cautions that some people want to see. From a competition side, NASCAR has created a very level playing field, which we were all after. And now we need to look at the venues and try to put on a better show based on the tracks.” Dale Earnhardt Jr. agreed that some of the tracks just don’t suit the configurations of the current Sprint Cup car. “You do see side-by-side racing, especially at the short tracks, but on the bigger 1.5-mile tracks you are kind of limited,” he said. “You are limited by the aero and the dirty air by the car in front of you. That is always going to be a factor no matter what. There is nothing really that can be done to elimi-

nate that entirely. You just run as hard as you can run.” Edwards, who prefers the recent slate of “pure” racing, said the competition will improve as the season progresses and he’s enjoyed the way the last few events have played out. But, if NASCAR really wants to address fan complaints, he said reducing the aerodynamic issues of the race car could help. “Not every race has to be an exciting, dramatic, crazy bumperto-bumper finish. If you just let them play out naturally you will get those really great moments,” he said. “But I firmly believe that we should not be racing with downforce, sideforce and all these aerodynamic devices. We do not need splitters on the race cars and giant spoilers.

The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — It took till the last game of the entire first round, and even at that, it took double overtime. But the New Jersey Devils finally disposed of the Florida Panthers and advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals early Friday morning. For a franchise with three Stanley Cups and four conference crowns since 1995, and nine division titles since 1996, you would think that sort of feat would be a given. But it’s been a tough few years in the Garden State. The Devils, in fact, missed the postseason last year for the first time since 1996. They went through two coaches, a miserable start, and in the end, a late rally couldn’t stop the streak from folding. The previous three seasons, New Jersey lost in the first round, and since hockey returned after the 2004-05 lockout, New Jersey had won just two series total. Before last night. “Winning a playoff series goes a long ways for people,” New Jersey goaltender Martin Brodeur said. “It helps with confidence, and the first round — when you’ve struggled in the first round before — to get through it, it feels pretty good ... for a day. “Then, we have to go face the Flyers.” Indeed, New Jersey’s next opponent will be its neighbor to the south, the rival Philadelphia Flyers, who haven’t played since Sunday, and handled Pittsburgh in six games en route to a Round

1 win. The Devils, meanwhile, needed seven games — and overtime in both Games 6 and 7 — to outlast the Panthers. Rookie forward Adam Henrique scored his second goal of the game at 3:47 of the second overtime to give the Devils a 3-2 victory over Florida, and set up the fifth postseason matchup between Philadelphia and New Jersey. Both teams have won two. “I think this is going to be an outstanding series. We know enough about each other,” New Jersey general manager Lou Lamoriello said Friday on WFANAM (660) in New York. “It’s a series that will have to take discipline. In the playoffs, no matter what sport it is, there are turning points in every game. We need discipline and focus. We have to stay consistent.” The Flyers were indeed that, for three games against the Penguins, before dropping Games 4 and 5. On Sunday, though, forwards Claude Giroux and Danny Briere scored their sixth and fifth goals of the series, respectively, as Philadelphia bounced back and eliminated Pittsburgh — once and for all — with a 5-1 win. “A lot of times, it comes from a group or a belief. I don’t think it’s something that you can neces-

sarily teach,” Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said regarding his team’s resiliency. “You either go down a road where you think you can fight back, or overcome things, or continue on with things, or you can’t.” The Flyers were certainly resilient in 2010, when they clinched a playoff berth on the regular season’s final day, then upset the Devils in the first round in five games. New Jersey was the East’s No. 2 seed at the time, and the victory ignited Philadelphia, a No. 7 seed, to a run that ended in the Stanley Cup Finals, where it lost to Chicago in six games. “We know we’ve got a really tough opponent ahead of us in Philly,” Devils captain Zach Parise said after the win over Florida. “But this is a great feeling.”

With only one of the top four East seeds advancing — the No. 1 Rangers — the Flyers now have the luxury of home-ice advantage, after not having it in Round 1. Philadelphia (103) had one more point than New Jersey (102) in the regular season. “Any team that makes it to the final eight is a good opponent,” Laviolette said. “They had to do something right to knock off somebody. There will be no easy opponents. Sixteen teams make it, and everyone’s goal is to win the Stanley Cup, and they all fight like mad to get it.” A key cog to this series will be the Flyers’ power play against the Devils’ penalty kill. Philadelphia was 12-of-23 with the extra man against the Penguins, and the Flyers will now face the regular-season’s top PK unit.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Forget about pats on the backs and sighs of relief. The New York Rangers and Washington Capitals have no time to revel in their first-round playoff victories before they meet up again. The seventh-seeded Capitals knocked out the defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins in Boston on Wednesday in Game 7 and then watched the top-seeded Rangers outlast the Ottawa Senators a night later in that decisive game to avoid elimination. Now the former division rivals are matched up in the Eastern Conference semifinals, their third postseason meeting in four years. The Capitals won the previous two over the Rangers and coach John Tortorella, but New York insists those series have no bearing on this one. “Irrelevant,” Tortorella said after practice Friday on the eve of Saturday’s matinee opener at Madison Square Garden. “This is another series. We found a way to get through a tough series against Ottawa, Washington is the next one. It doesn’t matter what has happened before.” Tortorella, a Stanley Cup-winning coach in 2004 with the Tampa Bay Lightning, just earned his first postseason series win with the Rangers since he took over during the 2008-09 season. The Capitals knocked out New York in 2009 by rallying from a 3-1 series hole, and did it again last year in five games. “It’s a different team every year,” Rangers forward Brian Boyle said. “What happened in the past is over and done with. We’re looking at them now and who they have, their personnel

and how we need to play against them and how we need to play as a group.” Boyle missed the final two games of the Ottawa series after sustaining the first concussion of his career when he was hit by Chris Neil in Game 5. Boyle skated Friday for the first time since being hurt, but didn’t know if he would be able to play Saturday. Brandon Dubinsky, injured in the third period of Game 7, didn’t practice Friday. If Boyle is cleared to play, and Dubinsky can’t go, the two players could be swapped in the lineup. With only one day off between the first round and the second, the Rangers moved quickly to put the Senators behind them and begin focusing on the Capitals. Washington, 4-2 in playoff series against New York, split four regular-season games with the Rangers. “We can’t relax,” Rangers topline forward Brad Richards said. “We’re not changing anything. We’ve got to realize that that game is over and now this is the most important one of the year. We’ve got to bring it up right away. We can’t finish Game 1 still worrying about how great we were to beat Ottawa. “That’s got to be out of there. Actually, we’re done with that now.”

UTEP to allow fight card at Sun Bowl despite risk

MONTY SAYS

By JUAN CARLOS LLORCA and JIM VERTUNO Associated Press

EL PASO, Texas — The University of Texas System chancellor announced Friday he will allow a high-profile boxing match to be held on the school’s El Paso campus if law enforcement can ensure a safe environment, reversing a 3-day-old ban that had upset city leaders. Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa had earlier canceled the June 16 fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Andy Lee at the Sun Bowl, citing only a “higher than normal” security risk. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Friday that a federal risk assessment had warned that leaders of warring Mexican drug cartels would attend. Cigarroa set several conditions for the fight to go forward: State, local and federal law enforcement must promise they can handle any security measures, the contract with the promoter and the security plan must be approved by system officials in advance, and no alcohol can be served. The chancellor said he met by teleconference with local and federal law enforcement and city leaders and they assured him they can provide proper security. In a video statement, Cigarroa praised El Paso and the entire border region. “This is a region that I grew up in, that I truly love, and that I admire,” he said. “The process of my decision-making process resulted in angst and at times anger by the El Paso community, and I accept that.” Fight promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank said he was surprised by Cigarroa’s restrictions. Arum said he’ll have to get assurances from the University of Texas at El Paso and local police by early next week that they can be met. If not, Arum said he’ll move the fight to Houston. “This is preposterous. We’ve never had one bit of problems in Los Angeles, Houston or San Antonio, which are all big Hispanic communities, on a Chavez

fight,” Arum said. The risk report, done by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations, had said leadership of both the Sinaloa and Juarez cartels would be present at the fight — but specified there were no specific threats to the city, the event or those attending it, according to the law enforcement official. The cartels have waged a bloody war in Ciudad Juarez across the Rio Grande from El Paso for control of drug smuggling routes and other criminal enterprises in the city. The official, who is familiar with the contents of the report, spoke on condition of anonymity because the official isn’t authorized to release the information. University of Texas at El Paso officials confirmed Friday that university police had received a federal report earlier this month, but declined to discuss its contents. Homeland Security Investigations “sent a security assessment to UT System who sent it to us and it wasn’t for another two weeks they (UT System) decided to cancel,” said Veronique Masterson, a public information officer at UTEP. Cigarroa’s previous decision to cancel the fight without releasing any details angered El Paso officials and state lawmakers, who accused him of fostering a culture of fear that the city has been overrun by cartel-related violence.

No. 46, the first Boeing-designed commercial jet ever built outside Washington’s Puget Sound region, sat ready for its moment in the sun. Certainly, Washington state remains the center of gravity of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It boasts 83,000 Boeing employees, including all the commercial airplane engineers who design the jets. The Everett widebody jet plant — home to the 787 design team and the first 787 assembly line — alone has more than 33,000 workers. Yet clearly Boeing South Carolina is now a significant, high-tech part of Boeing’s commercial jet operations, one focused entirely on making and assembling its newest jet made from carbon-fiber-reinforced composite plastic.

assembly sites in the world: Everett, Wash.; Toulouse, France; and now North Charleston, S.C. And unlike Everett, Boeing South Carolina does the entire sequence of plane-making. Here, resin-soaked carbon fiber tape is pulled out of cold storage, wound into barrel-shaped fuselage sections, and baked to hardness. And in a new 1.2 million-square-foot final assembly site, all the various pieces of the airplane are joined and integrated, its systems installed and tested, until it’s ready to fly. “This is the only site in the world that can say we go from freezer all the way to flight,” said Matt Borland, director of 787 aft-fuselage assembly.

BUTLER TWP. – Whenever Lou Barletta drives by the lot that was once home to his family-owned amusement park, Angela Park, he’s saddened by the loss. He didn’t want to have the same emotions when driving by the nearby Edgewood in the Pines golf course, which his family also once owned. So an investment group that includes the congressman and five other Northeastern Pennsylvania businessmen ponied up $537,500 to buy the 18-hole layout, banquet facilities and 158 acres they sit on. “It’s very sentimental for me,” Barletta said Friday. His family purchased what was then a ninehole golf course in the early 1970s and doubled the holes, built the banquet hall and made the property a centerpiece attraction for southern Luzerne County. After his family sold the course a succession of buyers followed over the past 20 years and the course became neglected. The last owner, a Dallas, Texas investment company, was on the verge of closing the doors this year. That’s when Barletta and five others, Harold Karchner, who owns Karchner Logistics in Hazle Township; Dave Merrick, owner of Merrick Hydrolazing and Water Blasting in Hazleton; Ed Abraham, who owns Liquid Fence in Brodheadsville, Monroe County; Stephen Walser, former publisher of the Standard-Speaker newspaper in Hazleton and Joe Boretski, a Wells Fargo Bank executive, stepped in and purchased the business. Boretski, who lives in Sugarloaf Township and called himself the managing member of the investment group, said the course will remain open as upgrades are made. He estimated about $750,000 will be needed to get the place in shape. Barletta said rebuilt sand traps, new golf carts and more are on the agenda and with the investors in place, they should all be done with ease. “I’m confident they’ll put into it what it needs,” he said, adding that he’ll be the only investor that will not take an active management role. Boretski, who remembers golfing on the course in high school, said “it’s been a big part of our life in this community.” And it wasn’t something any of the investors wanted to see go away. “A lot of people have a lot of fond memories of that place,” Barletta said. “It would be a great loss for our area.”

dampened overall growth. If only private-sector components of the GDP are taken into account, the economy grew at a 3.5 percent annual rate in the first three months of this year, according to Alan Krueger, the head of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. “This isn’t boom times, but it is enough to generate enough jobs to push unemployment slowly lower,” said Mark Zandi, the chief economist for forecaster Moody’s Analytics.

Temperatures this weekend will continue to trend below normal, but at least we can expect a good deal of sunshine. Sunny skies this morning will turn cloudy later this aftrnoon as a storm passes close by to our south. An area of light rain might move through overnight and in higher elevations, a light mix of rain and snow is possible. Dry, northerly winds will follow on Sunday to promote clearing and a beautiful sunny day for the Cherrry Blossom Festival. With the sun as strong now as it is on Aug. 15, you may want to consider using some sunscreen. - Tom Clark

Spices are the variety of life: Buy some today

By KIM COOK

For The Associated Press

hy was Parrish blue the “in” color of the 1910s? What was with those 1950s pink bathrooms? Remember the 1970s’ “Harvest Gold” kitchen appliances? • A new book, “Pantone: The 20th Century in Color” (Chronicle Books), looks at how color and cultural history affect each other and find their way into our homes. • Authors Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker are consultants for Pantone, the New Jersey-based company that developed a standardized color system used by designers, manufacturers, printers and publishers. They use a curatorial approach in discussing each decade’s most prevalent colors and why they might have become popular. It’s an unusual lens on the past century: What was happening in society literally colored our lives, through upholstery, wall paint, rugs and other textiles and accessories. The authors begin with the 1900s and the Edwardian era, what they call “the last good time of the upper classes.” Coronations in several European countries were celebrated by craftsmen such as Cartier, Faberge, Lalique and Tiffany with beautiful objects, whose colors — violet, emerald and gold — the public embraced. The Arts & Crafts movement was the counterpoint to all that, with simpler patterns and more restrained yet complex colors: deep Brittany blue, antique white, leather and loden. Artist Maxfield Parrish, known for fanciful magazine, book and advertising illustrations, popularized an intense

cobalt hue. And when Les Ballets Russes debuted to rave reviews, it inspired a craze for Eastern pattern and color — deep turquoise, navy, claret and amber. Picasso and the Cubists used charcoal, chocolate and pops of vermillion. But when fashion designer and Orientalist Paul Poiret started dressing women in shell pink and soft gray kimonos, that airier palette, anchored with black and metallics, became the hallmark of Art Nouveau decor. After the turmoil of World War I, strong, comforting and familiar colors such as cashew, cream, true blue and lichen were favorites for both the exterior and interior of homes. “The vibrancy of the colors of 1920s fabrics surprised me — I was amazed at the intensity,” Eiseman said in an interview. During that decade of exuberance and experimentation, Art Deco featured black and white, the seductive Jazz Age berry and grape hues and the gold, henna and

D-I-Y fleece pillow a no-sew option

By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

Sewing skills are certainly useful, but for those of us who cringe at the thought of sitting down to a machine or taking a sharp needle in hand (thanks for ruining that one on me, seventh-grade home ec), options exist to avoid the needle-andthread method. Take, for example, the “NoSew Fleece: Fun Bow-Ties Pillow Cover” now on creativejewishmom.com as well as many a Pinterest board. These pillows are simple to make and basically require a lot of measuring and cutting.

What you need: • Pillows or pillow forms in the desired shape and size • 2 pieces of fleece in complementary colors • Masking tape • A tape measure • Good scissors I used a 16-by-16 inch pillow for this one (thanks for the loan, Mom). These pillows can be found at WalMart for $15. It doesn’t matter what the pillow looks like because it’s going to get covered anyway. I chose to use a solid-colSee PILLOW, Page 2C

If all goes swimmingly, your no-sew felt pillows can look as charming as this.

WHAT ARE YOU MAKING AT HOME? We might have Pinterest to thank for the explosion of newfound interest in D-I-Y projects for the home. The Times Leader wants to know what you’re up to. If you’re willing to try out a project for us, or show us a project you’ve already tried (successfully or not), call Sara Pokorny at 829-7127 or email her at spokorny@ timesleader.com.

onfession time: I once almost bought a house because of a built-in spice cabinet. OK, maybe not almost, but I did try to convince myself that other, more critical things, such as an obviously mildewy basement, weren’t such big deals when there was an 8-foot-tall, 1-foot wide, 6-inch-deep crevice dug right into a kitchen wall and begging me to take it under my keeping. I have a little problem, see. It might be a big problem, but it started out as a little one and has acquired girth with the passing years. It all came to a head the other day when I looked into the figurative eyes of a bottle of Roasted Garlic Salt by Lawry. New! The label screamed. (This is how they tease us.) No! I ordered myself. No. You. Will. Not. (Roast your own.) Because, back at the ranch, the entire drawer imaginarily labeled “salt” simply cannot accommodate even one more bottle of stuff that, let’s face it, is bad for you anyway. Just a month ago, in fact, the collected contents – ordinary garlic salt, seasoned salt, kosher salt, margarita salt, salt substitute and three types of sea salt, just to name a few – had achieved such unspeakable numbers that the pepper with which it previously cohabitated simply had to move on. To a drawer all its own. And who has this much space? Not I. I just like to pretend. But friends, if you think I have a salt problem – and I don’t even really add it to food much, making these quantities even more inexplicable – you should meet my peppers: Not only black pepper and white pepper (for which New England clam chowder begs) but pink pepper, too. (Looked pretty?) Black peppercorns and tricolor peppercorns, each in a grinder. Lemon pepper. Garlic pepper. Lemon-garlic pepper. Ground cayenne pepper. Smokehouse pepper and Worcestershire pepper (in cute pour cans). And don’t forget Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up Pepper. (Looks great in those creamcheese-based party balls.) I can go on. I won’t. You’ll think less of me. And it doesn’t stop at salt and pepper, no sir, no ma’am. When it comes to spices, just consider me a cargo ship, teeming with all manner of exquisite bounty. That’s half my problem. Wandering the world sure doesn’t help this little addiction. But it does explain a second spilling-over inventory of all good tastes brought home. (Because what fits in your bags better than a tiny, palate-pleasing reminder of the place you don’t want to leave?) Creole seasoning and soul seasoning. “Texas Gourmet” seasoning. “Parisian Melange” and “Tuscan Villa.” (I’m so worldly, aren’t I?) Actually I’m pathetic. I once brought home at least six bottles of “saffron” from Central America only to find out they were actually “szafron,” which is NOT the same thing and explains why it was so cheap. (Stick to splurging on those little red threads, y’all.) Moving on: Cal-Mex seasoning and Adobo, not one but two bottles. (Why? No idea.) Southwestern Hickory Rub. (Huge. Sticks in the drawer track all the time.) Jamaican Allspice and Chinese Five Spice (though I’ve never been to China. Yet.) Saigon Cinnamon. (Ditto, Vietnam.) But where do the basics fit in? The basils and bay leaves and good old Italian seasoning you MUST have on hand for homemade sauce? Squeeze ’em in there somewhere between the cumin, curry and coriander, the tarragon and turmeric, the parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. The mint and mustard. And, oh, look here: mustard seeds! Now why do I have those? Who knows? Wait. I do know. The Good Book tells me I need only have faith the size of one of those puppies and I can move mountains. Well, if I can do that, I certainly can settle this spice shop down. Or at least tame the beast enough to make way for one tiny bottle of roasted garlic salt.

THE TIMES LEADER

On the shelf The slow-food movement raised interest in locally produced food. Now the same thing is happening with flowers. Debra Prinzing explores the phenomenon in her new book, “The 50 Mile Bouquet: Seasonal, Local and Sustainable Flowers.” The book tells the stories of people who are committed to the “slow flower” movement, from growers and floral designers to a bride who grew some of the flowers for her wedding and supplemented with others grown locally. Prinzing includes resources and tips for do-it-yourselfers, along with some basic instructions on creating a floral arrangement. “The 50 Mile Bouquet” is published by St. Lynn’s Press and sells for $17.95 in hardcover. What’s new A paint stripper made from soybeans provides a safe way to remove and dispose of lead paint. Lead Out, from Franmar Chemical, is a gel stripper that encapsulates lead so lead dust can’t get into the air. It also chemically alters the lead compounds to make them insoluble, so they won’t leach out and don’t have to be treated as hazardous waste. The product is made from American-grown soybeans and is biodegradable and non-caustic. It comes in a kit that needs to be mixed before application. Lead Out can be ordered at www.franmar.com. A 1-gallon container costs $99.95 plus shipping. Q&A Question: What’s the best way to clean the interiors of microwaves and garbage disposals? Answer: The best way I’ve found to clean a microwave oven is to steam it. Microwave a cup or bowl of water on high till it boils, and then let the water boil for a few more minutes. The steam will soften the food spatters so you can wipe them right off. As for the disposal, grinding ice will help clean the blades, and grinding lemon peels will help eliminate odors. Freezing equal parts water and vinegar in ice cube trays and then grinding them will accomplish both goals, according to household hint writers Graham and Rosemary Haley. Or try “Queen of Clean” Linda Cobb’s tip: Plug the drain, fill the sink with 3 inches of warm water and mix in 1 cup of baking soda. Then drain the sink with the disposal running. -- McClatchy-Tribune Newspapers

This country-flavored design, Plan HMAFAPW00730 from Homeplans.com, offers a lovely exterior and a family-friendly layout with surprising amenities. The home provides 2,875 square feet of finished living space on two floors. A wraparound porch expands the living space into the outdoors. Through the foyer, a study sits to the right; with the adjacent full bath, it can easily serve as a guest room. The formal living room on the right also could do double duty as a media zone or den, especially if modified to have doors. Farther back, the dining room opens to the covered porch so you can enjoy views while eating. The relaxed family room in back opens to the kitchen to form a casual living space. A snack bar serves three, while the breakfast nook enjoys lots of sunlight from surrounding windows. An island adds extra workspace in the kitchen, and skylights brighten the space. Step out from the family room to the porch, which extends the entire width of the house and wraps around the sides, too. The master suite forms a com-

fortable retreat with a bay window, dual walk-in closets and a well-appointed bath that contains a corner garden tub, separate shower and two sinks. One of the three bedrooms upstairs has its own bath, while the other two share a hall bath with two sinks. A sitting loft completes the plan.

ored fleece and a patterned one. I ended up getting a yard of each type because I had no idea what measurements I would need, and it only cost $10 total at Jo-Ann Fabric in Kingston. Cut a piece of each type of fleece with a width equaling the circumference of the pillow plus four inches and a height that is the height of your pillow plus one inch. I decided to add the extra inch on my own after a first failed attempt, and it worked much better. Place masking tape along the height of the fleece at both edges, 2 inches from the edge, and mark off even intervals of 1 ½ inches on the tape. Cut fringe according to tape placement and markings on tape. Now you’re ready to tie it all together (literally). Lay one piece

of fleece on a table, running side to side, and place the pillow on top. Lay the other piece of fleece on top of the pillow, running top

to bottom. Wrap the two sides of the bottom piece up and around the pillow and tie fringe at center of pillow. Turn pillow over and tie second set of fringe on that side. Boom, instant pillow cover that can be switched out whenever you desire. The good thing about this project is that, even if you cut unevenly, it’s really hard to tell. The pillow is squishable and can be molded right into the fleece to make for a perfect-looking piece on which to rest a head. • Total cost: $25 • Project level: Easy • How cool? ★★★★ out of 5 (with the deduction of one star only because of the first-time mishap) • Tips: Using a good pair of scissors will make the process much easier.

Nile blue that came in vogue after the discovery of King Tut’s tomb ignited a craze for Egypt. During the Depression, films offered escapist glamour; French designers such as Chanel and Lanvin dressed the stars in luxurious fabrics, furs and jewels, so colors such as pearl, ebony and copper were the rage. But there was also the Parks and Recreation movement, spearheaded by President Roosevelt. Artists created posters, sculpture and other works to help promote new parks and public buildings. It’s Eiseman’s favorite decade. “Ultimately the careers of many impoverished artists, Rothko and Pollock among them, were literally nourished during that period,” she said. The palette? Naturalistic tones such as olive, amber and azure. And then came plastic. With the invention of synthetic resins, wonderfully vivid shades of yellow, reddish orange, emerald and purple were used in all sorts of household goods from radios to utensils. The notion that color affects our moods and energy took off in the 1940s. Pittsburgh Paints put out “color dynamic” brochures and ads espousing the

’70s were a therapy session,” Eiseman and Recker write. Earthy, contemplative colors reflected a new interest in ecology and nature. That explains the Avocado Green stove and Harvest Gold fridge. The 1970s was a style smorgasbord, with disco, French country, and California surf culture contributing color stories of their own, from neon to lavender and periwinkle to taupe and sand. Prep style and Miami Vice made pink, green, khaki and aqua hot in the ’80s. Yves Saint Laurent’s Moroccan-themed collection used saffron and violet. But the decade also flirted with Japanese style and its palette of gray, carmine and chartreuse. Artist Keith Haring’s spirited graffiti art, in his three favorite colors — black, white and red — became a trend. The ’90s, to Eiseman and Recker, evoke grunge — muddy graphite, hazy purple, faded denim — as well as spa culture, blingy metallics, a la Versace and Gucci, and Latin American colors.

uplifting effects of hues such as apricot, meadow, vanilla and smoky rose. When the war ended, people were ready to party and filled their lives with the upbeat colors of Frisbees and Hawaiian shirts: bright blue, lava and yellow. These hues drifted into the early 1950s — think Fiestaware, Revlon red lipstick, a turquoise Studebaker. The era brings to mind youthful optimism, and color reflected that. Mamie Eisenhower’s favorite hue was pink; she filled rooms in the White House with the color, and soon homes across America followed suit. But cute wasn’t the only dynamic in play. The sophisticated, organic hues of Eames’ midcentury design — mustard, eggplant, melon — also found an audience. In the 1960s, psychedelic fuchsia, lime and taxi yellow, as well as pepper green, saffron and soft peach, reflected both pop culture and the influence of The Beatles’ India trip. “If the ’60s were a party, the

SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 2012 PAGE 7C

Mother’s irrational animosity is driving a wedge between the families Dear Abby: My mother has never liked her sister-inlaw. Mom thinks “Auntie Beth” is “completely out to get her,” even though no one has seen any evidence to support mother’s claims. For the past several months, Mom has been complaining nonstop about how “awful” Beth is. She says things at the most random times to people she barely knows. If we don’t show sympathy toward Mom, she then becomes enraged. It has caused many problems between our family and Auntie Beth’s. We can’t have holidays together because my aunt is not allowed in our house. No one wants to be involved in the drama.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE How can I help my mother understand the harm she is causing and get our family back together? — Sick of the Drama Dear Sick Of The Drama: Your mother’s behavior appears to have escalated from disliking Aunt Beth to paranoid. If it is time for her annual physical, her doctor should be told about it because her behavior is not normal and she may need a neurological exam or counseling. Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do about this, because if you try,

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

she may think that you are “against” her, too. But the rest of the family can refuse to allow her to exclude Aunt Beth by not accepting invitations in which she is not included. Dear Abby: I have started a relationship and am falling in love. I have known “Willa” for a few years, but we never really hung out before this. We see eye-to-eye on lots of things. However, the other night she told me she’d had a past relationship with her best guy friend, “Mike,” whom she refers to as a “big brother.” Mike is someone I hang out with. Their fling was eight years ago. Willa also hinted there may be other mutual friends she has had relations with before me. I don’t care who she’s been with, but I feel I should know which

CRYPTOQUOTE

ones we socialize with. And I’d rather hear it from her than find out from a friend. Willa says it isn’t her place to spread other people’s business. What do you think? — Wants Answers Dear Wants Answers: Unless Willa intended to make a full disclosure, she shouldn’t have teased you by making you curious. Obviously, you do care about whom she has been with, so now you need to be honest with yourself about why. Would you prefer not to socialize with the men with whom she has had past relationships? Because she has clammed up, perhaps you should assume that she has been with all of the men she has introduced you to. The question you need to ask yourself is whether you

can put her past aside and focus instead on building a future with her. Dear Abby: I am curious to learn what your readers do when they receive a gift card for a place where they don’t shop or eat. Some are located far from where I live, and some don’t carry anything I need or want. — Grateful, But ... in Columbus, Ohio Dear Grateful, But: I am sure most of my readers would do what I would do and that is re-gift it to someone who would appreciate it and use it. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re a sponge for knowledge now, and you’ll learn from those who have what you want. The best teacher, however, is experience. Dive in and go for the experience. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you have a plan, you’ll feel productive. You might get even more accomplished by just winging it; however, you won’t get the same winning feeling as you do when you follow a plan. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You won’t do things in the expected order, but you’ll get them done nonetheless. A loved one might find this puzzling or even maddening. But why should you do things like everyone else? CANCER (June 22-July 22). Most people think it’s important to be right, but they’re wrong about that. You’ll be amazed at what happens when you give up the need to be right. Your mind will quiet. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your standards of style come into play. You may like someone very much, but you won’t take the relationship to the next level until you’re satisfied that your styles will mesh well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your skills get rusty if you don’t use them. You’re in just the mood to freshen up your bag of tricks. Practice that thing you used to be able to do to prevent losing the skill altogether. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Writing to-do items down on paper seems so “old school” in today’s high-tech world. However, it’s the method that’s going to make this day a great success.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll spend a fair amount of time looking at the big picture. To an outsider, you appear to be a person staring into space. They can’t see the magnificent wheels turning in your mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are still being too hard on yourself, expecting maximum productivity without allowing time to laugh, kick back and recuperate. Don’t skip these crucial steps. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have that special charisma that makes people give you their full attention. You will have a receptive audience, so take your sweet time telling a story. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Once you fully bond with someone, it’s next to impossible to separate you from that person. Temporary separations end in you being drawn back together. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You feel a strong empathy with someone. Your empathy is an expression of love that widens your perception and further opens your heart. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 28). Operating in groups will be a specialty, and you’ll be an integral part of a winning team this year. You’ll visualize yourself succeeding and then create the same dynamic in your reality. A shift in perspective helps you find a way to make more money in June. November brings exciting visits with those you’ve missed. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 25, 49, 27 and 16.
