WASHINGTON – The national debt limit should not be raised until Congress and the White House agree to cut federal spending by trillions, not just billions, of dollars, say GOP Reps. Lou Barletta of Hazleton and Tom Marino of Lycoming Township. The freshman House Republicans said in separate phone interviews that they aren’t in favor of the federal government defaulting on its obligations to debtors any more than they favored a federal shutdown. “When is the “I am not government in favor of going to understand that any tax enough is hikes at enough?” Marino said. all. It is “We argued not that over cutting bilpeople do lions,” Barletta said. “We need not pay to cut trillions.” enough in A federal shutdown was taxes, it is avoided earlier that Wash- this month – just before a ington midnight deadspends too line – when Democratic much.” and Republican Rep. Tom leaders agreed Marino on $38.5 billion R-Lycoming in cuts for the Township final months of the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. When Congress reconvenes next week after its spring recess, the debt ceiling debate will be front and center and there won’t be much time to forge a deal: Treasury Department officials have placed the date at which the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling will be breached at May 16, and said that technical maneuvers to keep the federal government from going into default can only work until, at the latest, July 8.

Lehman storm not a tornado INSIDE

NWS meteorologist says damage was caused by strong winds.

LEHMAN TWP. – Dave Nicosia, a National Weather Service warning coordination meteorologist, walked along Old Route 115 Friday with just a compass, a map and a notepad. “It smells like a lumber yard,” he said as he passed the splintered tree trunks. He and members of the Back Mountain and Luzerne County emergency management agencies were trying to find out whether snapped trees in a straight path from Jackson Road to Old Route 115 were the result of a tornado Thursday. Nicosia thought they were not. He said the damage was most likely caused by strong winds up to 90 miles per hour occurring in a straight path. Using pinpoints on a map to track the wind vectors, he said the span of the forceful winds was about 2

Dave Nicosia, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Binghamton, N.Y., estimates a 90-mph straight-line wind snapped trees in Lehman Township early Thursday morning.

miles long and 250 yards wide. He said his main goal was to determine the wind’s direction and force by examining the path of split trees and debris, as well as the terrain of the area. Nicosia, of the Binghamton, N.Y. office, said tornadoes usually pull wind inward and cause trees’ canopies to become entangled, and he didn’t spy any of those patterns in Lehman Township.

Despite his conclusion, he and others at the Weaver property on Old Route 115 said the hundreds of snapped soft pine trees were an “impressive” sight. While there was a tornado watch issued for counties west of Luzerne on Wednesday night, the broken and uprooted trees were caused by a storm system passing through the area between 5 and 6 a.m. Thursday – an unusual occurrence, said Nico-

sia. “The winds probably accelerated into a cove and … funneled down into this area,” said Nicosia. He said the damage was caused by the same system that devastated the South this week, and the Back Mountain isn’t the only place to receive aftershocks of the twisters that claimed about 300 victims across seven states. “We sent a crew yesterday and we have about two or three crews out today,” he said. “We may go into early next week.” Harry Vivian of the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency said he hasn’t seen damage to this extent in the Back Mountain, where he’s lived all his life. “This is on a much larger scale,” he said of the destruction.

The only company considering building a plant at the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority to treat wastewater produced by natural gas drilling withdrew its proposal Friday. The company, New Hampshirebased Cate Street Capital, said citizen opposition to the plant was the main factor in its decision. “Our engineering study has determined that our proprietary technology is capable of cleaning the water to appropriate standards at a price which is in line with current costs,” Vice President Richard Cyr said in a statement. “We exist to bring environmentally sensitive and sustainable businesses to life, and this project would do that. “However, we have listened to the community and heard its concerns. We respect our neighbors in Hanover Township, and have decided to pass on this opportunity at this time.” Cyr could not be reached for additional comment Friday.

POLICE BLOTTER

District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre Township.

BUTLER TWP. – Township police reported the following: • Police Monday responded to a reported theft at the Country Corners Store on North Turnpike Road. A store employee said a white, middle-aged man stole merchandise by concealing it in his coat. The man left before police arrived. • Police are investigating the reported theft Tuesday from a shed on Nesco Manor Road. The owner of the residence said a person known to him entered the shed and removed an item. • A resident of Sunset Drive reported that a go-cart was stolen from her residence Sunday night. A garage door at the residence was forcibly opened to remove the go-cart. • A 22-year-old woman who was refused medical treatment after being assaulted on April 22 at a residence on Joy Lane was later arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, police said. Police and emergency medical personnel responded to a business near the residence for a report of a victim of an assault. The woman had driven away and was later located by police. Other people allegedly involved in the assault have been identified and charges are pending against them, police said. • Police charged Eileen Pollock, 51, of West Butler Drive with public drunkenness on April 22 after she was responding to a report of a woman staggering on North Beisels Road. In an unrelated call, Pollock was injured in a crash Tuesday night near the intersection of South Beisels Road and Wyeth Place. Police said she lost control of her vehicle, struck an embankment and trees before coming to rest in a drainage ditch. She was extricated from her vehicle and transported to Geisinger Wyoming Valley medical center, Plains Township. • Police attempted to locate a 10-year-old child who claimed to have been injured and locked in a closet by the child’s parents. The 911 centers in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties received calls from the child late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, but they were unable to pinpoint a location of the phone calls because they were made on a pre-paid cell phone. Police said they believed the calls might have originated from the Sand Springs area and an intensive search was conducted based on the clues provided by the child. The child, however, said the family recently moved and was unable to provide an address.

RICE TWP. – A man was arraigned Friday in WilkesBarre Central Court on charges he harassed a woman inside her home. Russell L. Meyer, 19, of Yorktown Road, Mountain Top, was charged by township police with defiant trespass and harassment. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail. Police charged Meyer after Amanda Daubert alleged he entered her residence in Valley Stream Park without permission and harassed her on Thursday, according to the criminal complaint. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on May 4 before District Judge Ronald Swank in Wright Township.

RICE TWP. – State police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement reported The Ice House Pub, 2658 Nuangola Road, was recently cited for loud noise, sold alcohol between 2 a.m. and 11 a.m., failed to require patrons to vacate and permitted patrons to remove alcohol after 2:30 a.m.

HANOVER TWP. – Township police reported the following: • Robert Miller, of Hazle Township, reported his white and blue 1996 Dodge conversion van was missing after it became disabled on Route 29 on Wednesday.

Police caught the three men, identified as Parham, Conahan and a juvenile, in the area of South Wilkes-Barre Boulevard near the South Street Bridge overpass. Police said Conahan hid a .380-caliber firearm under a vehicle when an officer told him to stop. Parham placed one of his hands in his waistband and appeared he chambered a round in a firearm, the criminal complaint says. Police said in the criminal complaint that Parham dropped a .380 firearm when he was forced to the ground by an officer. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on May 4 in Central Court.

New ‘Kids’ filing denied Judge rejects the amended complaint against several former county officials.

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A federal judge has denied a request by one of the plaintiffs in the “kids for cash” lawsuits to file an amended complaint against Luzerne County, finding that any new filing would be futile. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo said the claims made by Angela Rimmer Belanger against several former county officials are based on speculation and innuendo and do not raise a plausible claim for damages. The suit, filed in July, is among several that have been filed against former judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan, attorney Robert Powell and real estate developer Robert Mericle in connection

with the juvenile justice scandal. The suits allege the ex-judges conspired with Powell and Mericle to improperly incarcerate juveniles at juvenile centers that were owned by Powell and built by Mericle. The Rimmer Belanger suit, filed by attorney Arnold Levin of Philadelphia, differed in that it also named former commissioners Greg Skrepenak, Todd Vonderheid and former chief manager Sam Guesto as defendants based on allegations that they took part in the conspiracy. The suit sought to hold the county responsible for their actions. John Dean, attorney for the county, filed a motion to dismiss the suit, arguing Levin had presented only general allegations, and no facts, to support his position that Skrepenak, Vonderheid and Guesto played a role in the alleged conspiracy. Levin then sought permission to amend the suit to include ad-

ditional information. Caputo on Thursday rejected the request, saying it was clear that the new facts Levin sought to present still fell short of showing there was a valid cause of action. Levin had sought to introduce evidence of Skrepenak’s guilty plea to charges he had accepted bribes and kickbacks in exchange for exerting his influence as a commissioner. Caputo said Skrepenak’s actions in that criminal case are irrelevant to the civil suit because it dealt with unrelated business dealings involving Skrepenak. Similarly, Caputo said Levin’s allegations that Vonderheid and Guesto “knew” about the alleged kickback scheme involving Powell, Mericle and the exjudges were “in the hazy realm of innuendo, conjecture and implication.” Dean said Friday he expects Caputo will grant the county’s motion to dismiss the complaint, as he has in several of the other “kids for cash” suits.

Dallas Township wants ‘stronger’ rules for drilling By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – About 50 residents packed the municipal building Thursday night for a two-hour public hearing about a proposed amendment to the zoning ordinance which would include provisions for the natural gas and oil industries. Township Solicitor Thomas Brennan addressed the crowd prior to allowing public comment to explain the purpose of the proposed changes, which will be voted upon at the next supervisors’ meeting on May 3. He said the point is to make the

industry activities subject to conditional approval rather than special exception, which he believes will be “stronger” as there are several conditions that must be met prior to construction. Brennan added the current ordinance is “very good for now,” but he says the proposed changes give the township strength for future natural gas and oil company applications in the township. Currently, there are two applications pending zoning decisions within the township – one from Chief Gathering LLC to build a metering station off Hildebrandt Road about 1,300 feet from the

Dallas School District campus, and one from Williams Field Services LLC to build a metering station about 500 feet from the Chief proposed site. The Chief zoning hearing is awaiting a continuance date, while the Williams hearing is scheduled for May 16. Williams also has an application for land development approval to construct a gathering line to tap into the Transco interstate pipeline about 1,800 feet from the Dallas schools, and the company is scheduled to present plans to the planning commission May 10.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s inspection puts Salem Twp. facility under additional scrutiny.

SALEM TWP. – The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has put PPL’s nuclear power plant near Berwick under additional scrutiny after a Feb. 11 inspection revealed deficiencies in security. The NRC on Friday announced that it finalized a “Greater than Green” inspection finding for the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. The NRC uses a color-coded system to classify inspection findings, with the colors starting at green, or very low safety significance, and then increasing to white, yellow or red, commensurate with their significance. Details of the finding – including the level of significance – will not be made public because the NRC decided after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks it was appropriate to withhold security-related information because of concerns it could potentially aid individuals or groups interested in attacking or sabotaging a nuclear power plant, said Neil Sheehan, NRC public affairs officer for Region I. Additional scrutiny will continue until the NRC is satisfied PPL understands the root causes of the issue and has taken appropriate steps to address it, Sheehan said. “The finding was identified during a security inspection at the plant in February, and we issued it on a preliminary basis on March 28, 2011. At that time, we offered PPL an opportunity to attend a meeting with us to elaborate on the issue or to respond to it in writing. The company notified the NRC on March 31 that it was declining those opportunities,” Sheehan said. PPL was issued a notice of violation because a condition at the power plant violated NRC regulations Sheehan noted that the security deficiencies were promptly corrected or compensated for, and the plant was in compliance with applicable physical protection and security requirements before the NRC team that conducted the inspection left the site.

Volunteers from the Hazleton Fire Department used the city’s new ladder truck Thursday to practice raising the 60-foot-by-30-foot “Patriot Flag,” which will be the centerpiece of a noon ceremony today at City Hall. The large American flag is traveling the country to commemorate 10 years since the 9/11 tragedy, and its stop in Hazleton is being coordinated by the city’s fire department. The flag, which originated in San Diego, arrived in Hazleton earlier this week via Federal Express. Heights Fire Company volunteers Tony Colombo and Joe Boyle have organized the visit, and oversaw the run-through of the flag-raising in front of Hazleton City Hall. The Freeland Fire Department also provided its ladder truck for the flag, which will fly between the two. According to its website, the Patriot Flag was the brainchild of a group of businessmen in Escondido, Calif., who worked with an American Legion Post in that area to honor a World War II veteran.

Santorum says Obama doesn’t ‘understand America’ By JOE MANDAK Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Republican presidential aspirant Rick Santorum told National Rifle Association members at their annual convention Friday that President Barack Obama doesn’t "understand America," and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told them the administration is "consistently anti-gun and antiSecond Amendment." Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, criticized remarks the president made recently when he said America not only was a better country because of social programs like Medicare and Medicaid but added, "I’ll go further — we would not be a great country without these commitments." "Mr. President," Santorum said, "You don’t understand America if you believe that because it implies the United States wasn’t great for most of the first 200 years of its history.’’ Gingrich told the crowd that the 2012 presidential election is the most important in the country’s history, because it will determine "whether we’re going to remain a nation that believes our rights come from our creator." Santorum, Gingrich and, lat-

coordinator from the WilkesBarre Chamber of Commerce, was on hand to officially open the CYC’s garden with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The children’s faces lit up. With a quick snip of the golden shears by Mark Soprano, the executive director of the CYC, the dark blue ribbon gracefully fell onto the freshly tilled soil. Vinnie Cotrone, from Penn State Extension, explained to the children, ages 6 to 10, since the weather is still cooler and the nights are cold, the first things to be planted will be a variety of lettuces, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts. “These plants can grow in the cooler temperatures,” he said. Grey said throughout the summer other vegetables such as peas, beans, tomatoes, carrots, peppers and cucumbers will be added to the 44-foot-by-16-foot garden. “We do have seeds to plant,” she said. “But the ground is too wet and compacted to plant them now.” Grey said plans to teach the children how to cook the fresh produce will be incorporated into the curriculum. Split into smaller groups, the children eagerly headed into the garden to plant the seedlings. The first group stood with spades in hand listening to the importance of spacing out the plants to allow for room for growth. Other children waiting at the garden’s edge shrieked as a worm pushed its way out of the ground. Kiana Everett, 8, and her friend Alexandra Gomez, 8, both of Wilkes-Barre, said they have planted vegetables before, but enjoyed planting lettuce and broccoli. “I really want to see the garden grow,” Everett said. Jeremy Vega, 7, of WilkesBarre never tried planting anything before. He wanted to plant brussels sprouts in the soft cold soil. When asked what other items he would like to plant in the garden, he said, “fruits.” The children will be maintaining the garden throughout the summer. Grey said they will also be learning about composting and how that can help the garden grow. Vegetables from their harvest will be sent home with the children, some will be used at the CYC, and extra produce will be given to St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen in Wilkes-Barre, Grey said.

Mechanical problems postpone the launch until Monday

Endeavour’s trip delayed President Barack Obama meets with Space Shuttle Endeavor commander Mark Kelly, husband of wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and shuttle astronauts, after their launch was scrubbed, Friday at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.

Getting ready for beatification

A worker cleans a monument next to a giant picture of late Pope John Paul II hanging from a stage set at the St. Peter’s Square in Rome, Friday. On Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI will beatify John Paul in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. Beatification is the last major hurdle before being declared a saint, and John Paul is reaching the milestone in record time, a little over six years after his April 2, 2005 death. Benedict put him on the fast track for possible sainthood by waiving the typical five-year waiting period before beatification causes can begin. TUNIS, TUNISIA

Hundreds escape prisons

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The historic next-to-last space shuttle launch was scratched Friday because of mechanical problems, spoiling a visit from the president and dashing the hopes of the biggest crowd of spectators in years, including the mission commander’s wounded wife, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. NASA hopes to try again Monday to launch space shuttle Endeavour on its final voyage. President Barack Obama and his family visited Kennedy Space Center anyway but it was unclear whether he would still meet with the Arizona congresswoman. Giffords, who is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head, has been in Cape Canaveral since Wednesday to attend her husband’s launch. Giffords hasn’t been seen publicly since the Jan. 8 assassination attempt, and left her Houston rehabilitation hospital for the first time to travel to Florida. It was not immediately known whether she would stay for another try or return to Houston. She had been expected to watch the liftoff in private — as were the other astronaut families.

“Bummed about the scrub!! But important to make sure everything on shuttle is working properly,” her staff said via Twitter. Endeavour was fueled and the six astronauts were heading to the launch pad when the countdown was halted, about 31⁄2 hours before the 3:47 p.m. liftoff. NASA’s silver-colored astrovan did a U-turn at the launch control center and returned them to crew quarters. It would have been the first time in NASA history that a sitting president and his family witnessed a launch; Obama is not planning to return. As a consolation,

Obama and his family got an up-close look at Atlantis. It will make the last shuttle flight this summer as NASA winds up the 30-year-old program and retires the fleet to museums. Launch director Mike Leinbach said the next launch try would be Monday at the earliest — and hinted at an even longer delay. Technicians will have to crawl into the engine compartment to track a suspected electrical short in a power distribution box. “We’ll fly no orbiter before its time, and today she just wasn’t ready to go,” Leinbach said.

Soldiers and security forces quickly fanned out in a search of the fugitives and at least 35 were caught within hours, TAP said, citing military sources. TAP reported that 522 inmates from the prison in Kasserine escaped after a fire in two cells, and another 300 inmates escaped from the Gafsa prison. The two towns are both in Tunisia’s center-west region, some 150 kilometers (about 95 miles) apart. Personnel at the prison in Gafsa were on strike at the time, likely making the mass exodus by inmates easier.

Gas pollution spurs concern Environmentalists are asking regulators to consider slowing the pace of gas drilling in western Wyoming after several days of severe ozone pollution last winter. Ozone levels in the Upper Green River Basin topped the highest levels in Los Angeles all last year. The ozone results from air pollution from gas drilling, which has picked up with the reviving economy. The Wyoming Outdoor Council, Upper Green River Alliance and other groups are asking the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to slow gas development and take other actions. The BLM says a slowdown would be a last resort under the plans that guide drilling. State regulators are looking for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set lower national limits for ozone pollution within the next few months. PHOENIX

Tea party license OK’d Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed bills approving 11 new special license plates, including one that would feature a "Don’t Tread On Me" slogan to commemorate the tea party and send donations toward the movement. Brewer, a Republican, acted on the license plate bills late Thursday, approving them despite previously expressing concern about Arizona’s growing number of special plates that now number 46. The tea party plate would feature the "Don’t Tread On Me" slogan, rattlesnake emblem and yellow background of the historic Gadsden Flag that is a symbol of the movement that espouses small government.

While Interpol, the international police agency, had called Thursday’s attack on a crowded tourist cafe in a historic Marrakech square a suspected suicide bombing, the minister, Taieb Cherqaoui, said that findings so far point to a bomb triggered from a distance. “This was not a suicide attack ... and it appears the bomb was set of remotely,” Cherqaoui told a meeting of government commission in Rabat.

Libya breaches Tunisia border

NATO warships intercept several boats laying anti-ship mines outside harbor of rebel-held city of Misrata. By KARIN LAUB and MAGGIE MICHAEL Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyan forces in more than a dozen military vehicles and armed with anti-aircraft guns and rocket launchers crossed into Tunisia on Friday

as fighting with rebels raged along the western frontier, witnesses said. Tunisia’s government was furious after clashes broke out on its territory and demanded Libya halt all incursions. In another sign that Moammar Gadhafi’s regime was redoubling efforts to beat back resistance in its stronghold of western Libya, NATO warships intercepted several boats laying anti-shipping mines outside the harbor of the rebel-held city of Misrata. The port is the only lifeline for the city of 300,000, which has been under

siege by Gadhafi’s forces for two months. Libyan forces also fired rockets and shells at Misrata from the outskirts of town, killing at least eight people. The fighting on the Libyan-Tunisian border, the attempted mining of the waters near Misrata and the renewed shelling signaled a new push by Gadhafi’s forces to retake the two areas of fiercest rebel resistance in the west. It’s unlikely Gadhafi would be able to cling to power without consolidating control over western Libya.

42 killed in Syrian blockade protests Thousands defy ban and denounce Assad’s harsh crackdown on uprising. By BASSEM MROUE Associated Press

BEIRUT — Security forces opened fire Friday on demonstrators trying to break an army blockade on the southern city of Daraa, while thousands of others across Syria defied a protest ban and denounced President Bashar Assad’s harsh crackdown on a six-week uprising. At least 42 people were killed, including 15 in the march on Daraa, according to witnesses and a human rights group. The protesters in cities across Syria — including the capital of Damascus — called for Assad’s ouster, with some chanting “We are not afraid!” Human rights activist Mustafa Osso said 42 people were The proteskilled, but the ters in cities death toll could rise.

A witness in er, with some Daraa — the chanting “We heart of the uprising — said are not residents afraid!” stayed indoors because the city has been under siege by the military since Monday, when thousands of soldiers backed by tanks and snipers stormed in. People were too afraid even to venture out to mosques for prayers, the witness said. “We are in our houses but our hearts are in the mosques,” the witness said, speaking by satellite telephone and asking that his name not be published for fear of reprisals. Large demonstrations broke out in Damascus, the central city of Homs, the coastal cities of Banias and Latakia, the northern cities of Raqqa and Hama, and the northeastern town of Qamishli. In Damascus’ central Midan neighborhood, witnesses said about 2,000 people marched and chanted, “God, Syria and freedom only!” in a heavy rain, but security forces opened fire with bullets and tear gas, scattering them. “Oh great Syrian army! Lift the blockade on Daraa!” protesters chanted in the Damascus suburb of Barzeh, according to video footage posted by activists on YouTube. The government had warned against holding any demonstrations Friday and placed large banners around the capital that read: “We urge the brother citizens to avoid going out of your homes on Friday for your own safety.”

Drug smugglers using ultralight planes By ELLIOT SPAGAT and AMANDA LEE MYERS Associated Press

CALEXICO, Calif. — The visiting British pilots were training near a naval air station one night this month when their helicopter came within about 150 feet of an ultralight plane flying without lights. The ultralight darted away toward Mexico without a trace. The near-disaster over the Southern California desert was an example of drug smugglers using low-flying aircraft that

look like motorized hang gliders to circumvent new fences along the U.S. border with Mexico. The planes, which began appearing in Arizona three years ago, are now turning up in remote parts of California and New Mexico. And in a new twist, the planes rarely touch the ground. Pilots simply pull levers that drop aluminum bins filled with about 200 pounds of marijuana for drivers who are waiting on the ground with blinking lights or glow-sticks. Within a few

minutes, the pilots are back in Mexico. "It’s like dropping a bomb from an aircraft," said Jeffrey Calhoon, chief of the Border Patrol’s El Centro sector, which stretches through alfalfa farms, desert scrub and sand dunes in southeast California.

Mundy criticizes WVSA for hiring plant consultant

PLANT Continued from Page 1A

Citizens win the day Cate Street and sub-company Red Desert responded to a request for proposals from the WVSA to build and operate the facility, and the company and the WVSA board have been in a due diligence period since March 16, studying how they might work together to build the plant. The board has paid a consultant to study the feasibility of building the plant for two years. While in the due diligence period, increasingly large and vocal crowds of area citizens opposing the plan turned out to monthly meetings of the sanitary authority board. They were concerned with the number of water trucks the plan might bring to the plant, the possibility of spills and other issues that could harm quality of life in the area around the plant. “This goes to show what a group of people can do when they want to change the way things are run,” said Scott Can-

DEBT Continued from Page 1A

President Obama and many Democrats have urged Republicans to go along with passing a “clean” increase to the debt limit and negotiating future budgets and spending cuts as a separate matter, noting that financial markets and credit rating agencies already are roiled by the prospect of a debt limit impasse and potential default. Standard & Poor’s, one of the main rating agencies, recently shifted its U.S. credit worthiness outlook to “negative” from “stable,” expressing concerns Congress and the White House won’t make a deal. Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey of the Lehigh Valley has indicated he doesn’t believe exceeding the debt ceiling would have the dire consequences to the markets and interest rates that Treasury Department officials and many other financial analysts

Barletta spokesman Shawn Kelly said anyone 55 and older would not see any changes to Medicare benefits and are in no jeopardy of losing Medicare benefits under the budget plan. “For those 55 and older, Medicare will be broke by 2022, so it must be reformed in order for them to have any benefits at all.

the plant was built. The consultant, by contract, would have been granted exclusive rights to market water produced by the facility and would have been paid a commission based on the amount of water treated facility. “It makes no sense to me that the Board would rely on someone who has a direct financial stake in the outcome to determine feasibility,” Mundy wrote. “While this might not be an outright ethical violation, it certainly appears to be a blatant conflict

Resources called the decision to scratch the plant “mutual.” “I also think that the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority Board in conjunction with them felt the same way and came to the same conclusion,” Minora said, adding, “We try to listen to all the ratepayers.” The WVSA and its board were taken by surprise by the announcement Friday, but board Chairman James Hankey said he met with members of the sanitary authority and its board Wednesday and a majority of board members, himself included, had already made up their minds against the plan and would vote it down at the next board meeting. The sanitary authority, in a media update it said was drafted after that meeting and that it planned to release Monday, said “it is expected that a majority of board members will vote to not accept the current proposal.” Hankey said the board saw too much uncertainty both in the amount of revenue the plant might produce and state and federal regulations governing the gas industry to go forward with the plan. Authority also calls it quits Hankey said he “had no problem with John Minora of PA Northeast Aqua the system that Cate Street was trying to

Cannon added that he expected the company would pull out eventually. “This kind of publicity isn’t good for an out-of-town business to come into,” Cannon said. “I think our work was very effective in getting them to take a good hard look at it.” LeeAnn Wallace, president of the recently formed Hanover Area Citizens Coalition, said she was happy to hear of Cate Street’s plans, but called on the sanitary authority to recoup the roughly $130,000 in fees the authority has paid to its consultant, PA Northeast Aqua Resources. She believes the consultant had a conflict of interest because it stood to profit if the plant was built. Several state and local officials, including the Hanover Township Commissioners and state Reps. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, and Gerald Mullery, DNewport Township, also expressed opposition to the plan.

have predicted. Toomey has authored a bill, supported by all 46 other Senate Republicans, that would require the government to keep paying interest on debt obligations first in the event the debt ceiling was reached. “The administration has been exaggerating the consequences of all this,” Toomey said in an interview this week with the Washington Post. “If we didn’t raise the debt limit when we reached it, we’d have the equivalent of a partial government shutdown, and the market knows very well that furloughing workers and suspending purchases of materials are not the same thing as defaulting on our bonds.” Casey weighs in Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, is one of the Democrats who have indicated they are leaning toward going along with a “clean” debt ceiling increase, even as Casey expresses support for cutting spending. Casey wants to see more spendturn Medicare into a voucher system. Beginning in 2022, Medicare recipients will be able to choose an insurance plan from a list of guaranteed coverage options, receiving the same benefits as members of Congress. Once a beneficiary chooses a plan, Medicare will make a premium-support payment to the insurance company, subsidizing the cost. The premium-support model will work like the Medicare prescriptiondrug benefit program operates today,” Kelly said. Medicare premium-support payments would be adjusted so wealthier beneficiaries would get a lower subsidy, the sick would get a higher payment, and lower-income seniors would receive additional assistance to cover personal, out-of-pocket expenses. “On average, Medicare beneficiaries will receive $15,000 anspat saliva and threw feces, striking an officer at SCI-Dallas.

of interest. I would strongly suggest the board use an independent consultant to determine feasibility.” Mundy called the proposed treatment plant “very serious business” which could have had significant consequences on the surrounding area if built, and said it therefore warranted independent scrutiny. Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, an opponent of the project, planned to host a panel discussion about plan in Nanticoke Thursday with state

propose,” but added, “We just didn’t think that the revenue was going to be there. Nothing was guaranteed. They had to build it; people had to bring water here… we were uncertain that those things would happen.” The authority was looking for a way to make more than $15 million in capital improvements its plant needs in the next five years without raising rates. Hankey said the board will continue to explore alternative ways to raise revenue, but said he doesn’t think it will seek additional proposals to build a wastewater plant at this time. “If somebody comes in here six months from now, a year from now, and knocks on our door and has a plan, we’ll look at it, but we’ll know a lot more by that point,” Hankey said. “We’re not looking for anyone; we’re not retaining anyone, but we’ll certainly look at it if somebody comes in.” Hankey said that while all points made by opponents of the plan didn’t make sense to him, “the people from Hanover, there were some people there who were scared… and I had a hard time finding a good answer for them. They are living in a town with a sewage treat-

ment plant.” Final thoughts on controversy Minora framed the revelation as a missed opportunity. “I think it was a worthwhile project. The citizens of the Wyoming Valley could have benefited to the tune of four to five million dollars in slowed rate increases,” Minora said. “At the end of the day, there are hundreds of thousands of gallons of water that need to be treated, and it’s going to be treated. Someone else will profit from it.” Minora added that the turn of events should answer critics who questioned if the plan was already a done-deal. “When we said there was no deal, there wasn’t, and there was no recommendation being made,” Minora said. If the Wyoming Valley missed an opportunity, Hanover Township gained an active citizens group. Group president Wallace said she thinks her coalition will stick around. “I think the Hanover Area Citizens Coalition is going to stay involved and hopefully work to make some other improvements in the community,” she said.

ing cuts this year, said Larry Smar, Casey’s spokesman. But, Casey “also doesn’t want to see another partisan fight that could end up hurting the economy,” Smar said. “He hopes that a bipartisan solution can be worked out to cut spending and avoid a government default that would hurt the economy.” Barletta and Marino are representative of a restive group of congressional conservatives, particularly the large House GOP freshman class, who say they won’t vote to raise the debt ceiling above its current $14.3 trillion limit unless there is also is an agreement for significant spending cuts and a commitment to balancing the budget. Barletta said he equates the debt ceiling debate to a scenario in which his daughter spent right up to the limit of one of his credit cards. Would he simply call the credit card company and tell them to raise the limit so his daughter could keep spending? “The answer is, no I wouldn’t. I would take the card off her and

As a (former Hazleton) mayor, it would be easy to balance the budget if you just can raise taxes to do it.” Marino said that while he considered this spring’s budget deal to cut $38.5 billion a success, “Now we have to start working on (cutting) trillions of dollars.

There would have to be guarantees for me that this will never happen again, that if I vote to raise the debt ceiling we will never go back to the American people again and ask them for more permission to borrow more money.”

not that people do not pay enough in taxes, it is that Washington spends too much.” But Marino said he doesn’t want the government to go into default and believes a deal can be worked out. He also acknowledged that some compromises will be in order, since Republicans control just the House, while Democrats control the Senate and White House. “Am I going to get everything I want, that Republicans want? No … and Democrats won’t get all that they want,” Marino said. “If we stop this bickering…If we are serious about paying off the debt and getting back into the black and creating jobs, then we all have come to the table and quit worrying about who takes control of what and check our egos at the door.”

dairy farm has a much bigger purpose? Our farm’s goal is to teach “sustainability” and often my sisters and friends serve as “co-faculty.” Teaching sustainability means trying to define healthier choices which if we all adopt, may lead to a healthier person, family, community, nation and world. I love being part of a farm that is literally a living, breathing classroom without walls! Please join me every Saturday right here in The Times Leader to learn simple yet important things you can do to be sustainable and even save money. I am happy to share ideas and perhaps help us all in the process. Remember that Precocious Knows so if you have a question about farming, gardening, composting, water, recycling, animals, dirt, bugs, worms or healthy life choices please send a note to Precociousknows@ thelandsathillsidefarms.org. I promise to write back and maybe even include your question in my column. Now THAT is exciting Moos!

Gov. Thomas Corbett has pledged not to raise existing taxes and not to create new taxes. “That doesn’t seem wise or responsible,” Mundy said. Rep. Mike Carroll, D-Avoca, a member of the House Transportation Committee, said “we have to start with something Gov. Corbett agrees with first”-- close a $3.5 billion funding gap in the transportation budget. Carroll said funding options must be found to meet “the very serious highway and bridge needs of the state.”

focus right now is on drilling, but I feel the real opportunities are still ahead.” Boback said she favors an impact fee, but only if the revenue raised goes to the host municipalities to pay for all costs incurred as a result of the drilling. Baker agreed, saying the state needs to “harness this economic engine and protect the environment.”

more substantial means to raise revenues must be found after all the cuts have been made as proposed in Gov. Tom Corbett’s budget. Mundy has proposed legislation – House Bill 1396 – that would close the “Delaware Loophole,” which allows multi-state corporations to avoid paying Pennsylvania corporate net income taxes. The bill also would lower the corporate tax rate from 9.99 percent to 7.4 percent over three years. While the talk centered on tax reform and possible new taxes, Mundy noted

be used to plug holes in the state budget. Rather, it would be dedicated to a variety of causes such as road repairs, environmental cleanups or water and sewer plant improvements, both in drilling communities and statewide. The revenues would be distributed to local governments through a Local Services Fund, with smaller portions of the fee distributed to county conservation districts and statewide environmental and infrastructure impacts. “I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that (Scarnati’s proposal) was written by the industry,” Mundy said. All the legislators said the Marcellus Shale industry will bring great economic benefit to the region and the state. They agreed the environment must be protected and the state Department of Environmental Protection must be provided the teeth to enforce state laws and regulations. “The Marcellus shale industry will transform Pennsylvania’s economy,” Yudichak said. “The

games. While Yudichak seemed optimistic the issue could be resolved during the current legislative session, Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, was doubtful. “When in doubt, study it again,” Mundy said. “This certainly needs to be addressed now, but I don’t expect any resolution this session.” The legislators talked about taxing cigars and smokeless tobacco, “a no brainer,” Mundy said. But the legislators agreed that to resolve the $4.2 billion budget shortfall,

OTHER OPINION: ‘BIRTHERS’

Quelling mistrust born of ignorance

P

RESIDENT OBAMA had little choice in releasing his long-form birth certificate, although it’s unlikely to satisfy the conspiracy crowd. The insane conversation over Obama’s place of birth was growing louder, fueled irresponsibly by Donald Trump. As if to heighten the absurdity, Trump took “credit” Wednesday for forcing the president to release the document. The “birther” conversation is a return to the days of the “KnowNothing” party – nativists who prided themselves on whipping up fears that the country was being overrun by German and Irish Catholic immigrants. Such prejudice, in its current sick form, presumes Obama to be a foreign Muslim sleeper-agent bent on the destruction of the United States.

For the record, the long-form birth certificate proves what rational people already accepted: Barack Hussein Obama is a U.S. citizen. He was born at 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4,1961, at Kapiolani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. His father was a citizen of Kenya; his 18-year-old mother was a U.S. citizen. Hawaii, by the way, gained statehood Aug. 21, 1959. The truly sad part of this episode is that Obama is trying to reason with the unreasonable. The people who despise him won’t be satisfied. Obama has made a startling concession to the forces of fear and ignorance. It should not have been necessary. But the move was within his control, and the lunacy would only have grown louder had he not taken this step. The Philadelphia Inquirer

LETTERS FROM READERS

Education cuts needed to control overspending

C

ritics of Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed 2011-12 budget say that Corbett is calling for drastic spending cuts. Nothing could be further from the truth. Corbett’s plan reduces spending only 3.1 percent from the current budget. Spending cuts are badly needed in Pennsylvania after eight years of reckless spending under former Gov. Ed Rendell. Much of the criticism directed at Corbett’s budget proposal is over the education cuts. Many critics say that education funding should not be cut at all. What these critics are overlooking is that education is the most expensive item in the state budget. Pennsylvania spends approximately $11.5 billion on education out of a total budget of about $28.2 billion. Do the math; this is more than 40 percent of the budget. No cuts to the most costly item in the budget will result in the overall budget not being reduced at all. What also tends to get overlooked is that the state education budget has been increasing at a drastic and unsustainable rate for a long time. Every year for at least 15 years the education budget has been increased, and most of these annual increases have been above the rate of inflation, at times far above. Corbett has the right plan; getting education spending under control will actually enhance education in the long run. Willie Speare Scranton

W-B facelift will continue if Leighton is re-elected

I

t wasn’t all that long ago, 2003 to be exact, that the heart of the city of Wilkes-Barre, the downtown, was a ghost town. With the election of Mayor Tom Leighton, 2004 saw the first positive steps toward what we have today: new street lights, an efficient intermodal center and no canopy – which gave the town a much needed facelift. We also have Movies 14 and a state office building. Both those accomplishments bring numerous people to our downtown each day. We have many new businesses, loft apartments and a new Main Street streetscape, plus additional parking on the Square and at the new intermodal center. In addition, while no one can stop anyone, including “undesirable elements,” from coming into the city, our expanded modern police force has become a priority for the Leighton administration and an effective, professional line of defense against crime.

All the good things listed above are a far cry from the dark, dingy, unsafe downtown presented to local residents and visitors before 2004.

Teleconference explores stress as a global issue

O

n April 18, the psychology department at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre hosted an international teleconference that focused on global mental health, with particular attention on stress, anxiety and trauma. The interactive conference was part of the United Nations Academic Impact initiative, a program using the resources of colleges and universities around the world to discuss global issues. Nearly 600 colleges, universities and organizations have joined this U.N. initiative. (Visit www.academicimpact.org and www.facebook.com/ ImpactUN.) Institutions from around the world joined our discussion. Many of the questions were relevant to local issues: How do people cope with stress from environmental threats? How does one deal with stigma attached to mental illness? How does one find help for emotional issues? Can stress, anxiety or depression be treated without relying on psychiatric medication? What about moving to another country? Should one maintain traditions, language and habits, or seek total assimilation into the adopted country? Our teleconference reminded us that psychological stress is common to all people, and the anxiety, fear and depression that can result from stress are universal human emotions. No matter what our culture, we must confront these emotions or our psychological health will suffer (www.subtlesuicide.com). We in the psychology department at King’s College intend to continue reaching

Name change of Altoona: A sellout or savvy move?

T

he city council of Altoona recently made a deal with filmmaker Morgan Spurlock to temporarily change the name of Altoona to “POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold” for the asking price of $25,000. The money will go to the Altoona police department. Spurlock made the purchase to create a statement in his documentary concerning product placement in film and media. From this recent transaction, it is apparent that product placement can extend beyond the boundaries of just cinema. William Schirf, the mayor of Altoona (the town formally known as Altoona, that is), appeared absolutely ecstatic over the deal. “We knew it would be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our city,” Schirf said in one interview. Schirf claims that the name change will bring publicity to the city, but to what effect? Although the city will be labeled under its “sponsored name” for 60 days, there will not be any substantial alterations made to accommodate this change. Highway signs will remain unaltered. Also, letterheads will still read the same. With the exception of a few commemorations within the city itself, how much publicity will the city truly receive? One other notion to acknowledge is publicity might not always be a positive thing. One website had the story under its “weird news” category. Is this the publicity to which Mayor Schirf was referring? Is selling the rights to a name worth a financial incentive? Could the $25,000 have gone to a better use besides the police force (i.e. tax breaks, education, hospitals or even in the hands of the residents personally)? Finally, what does this prove concerning advertising? If a city is “openly” willing to sell its name – a part of its culture, identity and history – for a few extra bucks, where is the line drawn? Will people start selling their own names or their newborn child’s name for cash? “McDonald’s: I’m Lovin’ It” Smith does not particularly roll off the tongue for me. Brian Yermal Jr. Rice Township

Whirlpool appears in the swollen Susquehanna Vortex located near the Market Street Bridge and in flooded River Common Park. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

A small whirlpool appeared in the swollen Susquehanna River that flooded River Common Park in Wilkes-Barre on Friday. It wasn’t big enough to swallow a boat, but its size would have caused problems for a kayaker. Jim Brozena, executive director for the Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority, said it appears a manhole became displaced for an underground line belonging to the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority. “When their pumps cycle on, the whirlpool appears; when their pumps turn off, it disappears,” Brozena said. “When the manhole is exposed, crews will

replace the cover.” 8:25 The vortex was loa.m. timesleader.com cated about 40 feet south of the Market Street Bridge and in the River Common Park that is flooded. It wasn’t the only park flooded. A playground in West Nanticoke was inundated by the river, overtaking the merry-go-round, swings, a sliding board and half of the basketball court. The river crested at 27.29 feet in Wilkes-Barre at 6:30 a.m. It is expected to drop below the 22foot flood stage this morning. River flooding closed a section of state Route 11 from Route 29 in West Nanticoke to Main Road in Hunlock Township. Sharon Boehler, of Swoyersville, was detoured on her way to keep a doctor’s appointment at Geisinger Medical Center in First reported at

Danville. When she came upon the road closure signs, she was turned onto Route 29 and pulled into a parking lot to check her GPS unit. “I’m running late the way it is,” Boehler said. Boehler was contemplating returning to her home and rescheduling her appointment. “If I get lost, I’m just going to turn back and go home,” she said. Route 11 is expected to reopen today at 9 a.m.

School buses make their way around a flooded and closed section of Route 11 in West Nanticoke Friday morning.

Harveys Creek came within two feet of spilling out of its channel and flooding several businesses in West Nanticoke. The creek splashed against the recently constructed bridge that carries traffic on Route 11. Brozena said the only other flooding problem was in the

Hicks Creek basin in Exeter. Hicks Creek empties into a basin next to a pumping station. Portable pumps force the creek over the levee and into the river. Brozena said several basements were flooded by Hicks Creek.

Flood-control projects, such as Hicks Creek, are in jeopardy of losing funds under Gov. Tom Corbett’s budget proposal. Yudichak claimed Corbett’s budget eliminates $3.5 million allocated for flood control projects under the Department of Environmental Protection. “During the budget hearings for the Department of Environmental Protection last month, I shared my concerns about the need to continue funding flood control projects to save taxpayers money,” Yudichak said. “After touring the flood-ravaged areas of Exeter, it is even more apparent why communities need this funding restored.”

help here.” After witnessing the damage in storm-wracked neighborhoods, Obama promised help and remarked that he’s "never seen devastation like this." Entire neighborhoods were obliterated in the city of more than 83,000 that’s home to the University of Alabama. “When we’re confronted by the awesome power of nature, we are reminded that all we have is each other,” said the president after spending time

talking to the state’s governor and Tuscaloosa’s mayor. The storms destroyed the city’s emergency management center, so the University of Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium was turned into a makeshift one. Though there wasn’t significant damage to campus, finals were canceled and commencement was postponed. The situation was dire about 90 miles to the north in the demolished town of Hackleburg, Ala., where officials were keep-

ing the dead in a refrigerated truck amid a body bag shortage. At least 27 were killed there, and the search for missing people continues. The only grocery store, the fire and police departments and the school are destroyed. There’s no power, communications, water or other services. Fire Chief Steve Hood said flashlights for the town’s 1,500 residents are needed because he doesn’t want them to use candles that could start fires.

HARRISBURG — The strong winds and rain that lashed Pennsylvania on Thursday spawned three tornadoes in the state’s midsection, the National Weather Service said, and the heavy rains left river levels still rising a day later. Bruce Budd, an NWS meteorologist, told The Patriot-News of Harrisburg that a tornado touched down in East Hanover Township, Lebanon County, during the storms that swept across the state Thursday. Two other tornadoes had been confirmed in Palmyra and at the Roundtop Mountain Resort in York County. All three tornadoes were categorized as EF1, which are twisters with winds from 86 mph to 110 mph. The storms downed trees and power lines, caused some flooding and led to some dramatic water rescues, but no major injuries across the state. In central Pennsylvania, the Susquehanna River was a foot above flood stage by 7 a.m. Friday, and much of the region was under flood warning, the Patriot-News reported. The river is expected to crest around 19 feet by Friday night, and return below flood stage by tonight. In Sunbury, Pa., a 91-year-old man had to be rescued Thursday after trying to drive through an underpass that was flooded with 3 feet of water. The Daily Item of Sunbury reports that Wayne Maurer, of Coal Township, was rescued by police and firefighters after passing motorists called for help. Volunteers backed a pickup truck into the water to rescue Maurer, but it took crews more than an hour to retrieve his car. "I always drive through it," Maurer said. "I been doing it for years, and I just didn’t think it was that deep."

KINGSTON – Unexplained flooding on several streets has caused Kingston to declare a state of emergency to assure funding will be available if extensive damage is found to the town’s infrastructure. Paul Keating, Kingston administrator, said Friday water has pooled on Second and Third avenues and at the intersection of Pringle Street and Schuyler Avenue. Keating said the cause of the flooding remains uncertain. “Both areas are considered low

spots in town,” Keating said. “What we learned is that the flooding was clearly not caused by storm water.” Keating said representatives of the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority determined that all pumping stations were operational and Pennsylvania American Water Co. said there were no breaks in any lines. “Every storm line we looked at was clear,” Keating said. “The flooding at Schuyler and Pringle didn’t begin until eight hours after the rain had stopped on Thursday evening.”

Keating said representatives from the Bureau of Surface Mining and the state Department of Environmental Protection visited the sites Friday and determined that the water was not a result of overflow from the mines. Keating said the best analysis of the situation is that the flooding is a result of saturated ground and the elevated river level that has caused water to come to the surface. Keating said the water was pumped from Second Avenue Thursday and some damage to the street could be seen. The

street flooded again Friday, Keating said. By declaring a state of emergency, Keating said Kingston could be eligible for funding if the recent storms have caused widespread damage throughout Luzerne County. Keating said Schuyler Avenue and Pringle Street will remain closed through the weekend. He said the water was being pumped through Thursday night into Friday and the level hadn’t changed. “It may take all weekend for nature to run its course,” Keating said.

win the next four and, ultimately, the series. They don’t want to take a similar path after losing Game 1 of the East Division Finals to the Charlotte Checkers on Thursday. Simply put, losing the first two this time around is not an option for the Penguins. “We did it once (come back from 0-2) but you’re not going to do it every series,” said Penguins

winger Geoff Walker. “We’ll regroup and be ready to go on Saturday.” That’s when the Penguins hope to even the series before they head to Charlotte for the next three games. But they not only need to regroup, they also have to regain their edge. An edge that was gained by facing one must-win situation after another against Norfolk to avoid a

first-round playoff exit. In that situation, the Penguins played with intensity and hatred for their opponent. It’s something they hope to generate tonight against Charlotte. “We have to have that hatred right from the start and not get down in the series,” Walker said. “We have to have that edge, and See PENGUINS, Page 8B

Federal appeals court overturns previous ruling that allowed players to return. By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — A federal appeals court threw the NFL back into chaos late Friday, putting a judge’s order lifting the lockout on hold. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis granted the league’s request for a temporary stay of the injunction issued Monday that ended the 45-day lockout. Now arguments will be heard on whether that order should be overturned altogether. “The purpose of this administrative stay is to give the court sufficient opportunity to consider the merits of the motion for a stay pending appeal,” the appeals court said. The decision came as the second round of the NFL draft was getting under way and it ruined one of the most encouraging days the league had seen in weeks, one that saw dozens if not hundreds of players return to their teams to meet with coaches, work out and have a peek at their playbooks. Will teams lock their doors again? That wasn’t clear late Friday. “Our attorneys will review the decision, See LABOR, Page 8B

CB Dowling is 1st to go in 2nd round By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — Even as Ryan Williams was bear-hugging Roger Goodell at the draft Friday, the NFL was back in position to shut down all other business. The Virginia Tech running back waited in a side room at Radio City Music Hall for 37 picks. Arizona finally called his name at the sixth spot in the second round — moments before the league was granted a temporary stay against an injunction that blocked its lockout of players. The teary-eyed Williams embraced the commissioner and former Cardinals cornerback Aenaes Williams, who made the announcement. Ryan Williams’ family and friends followed him on stage — about two dozen people in all — surrounding him and Goodell in a sea of celebratory supporters. They had no idea Williams might not be allowed to report to the team if the lockout is See DRAFT, Page 8B

SWB squanders lead, falls to Charlotte By CLIFF MEHRTENS For The Times Leader

FORT MILL, S.C. – The SWB Yankees took the lead against a Cy Young Award winner, then frittered it away in extra innings. The Yankees 6-5 loss against the Charlotte Knights on Friday night at Knight Stadium began strongly with three runs against starting pitcher Jake Peavy. The downside was blowing leads of 1-0, 3-2 and 5-3.

Yankees reliever Josh Schmidt (2-1). Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (14-8) lost for the second straight game. Peavy, the National League Cy Young Award winner in 2007, was making his third rehabilitation start following shoulder tendonitis.

on the past

There’s no sense in the Flyers and Bruins even playing this second-round playoff series, right? After all, the Flyers so badly damaged Boston’s confidence by coming back from a three-games-tonone deficit last year, there’s no way the Bruins can overcome it. If things look tough for the Flyers, Simon Gagne can always score a — oh, wait. That’s right. The hero of last year’s comeback is gone. But that’s OK. Young Finnish goaltender Tuukka Rask has to be just waiting for the Flyers to beat — what’s that? Tim Thomas is playing goal for the Bruins this year? Darn. Well, there’s always good old Marc Savard. He scored the Game 1 winner in overtime, then was accused of biting Flyers forward Dan Carcillo. That episode got the competitive juices flowing and — you’re kidding. Savard isn’t playing after another serious concussion? You get the point. While there will surely be some carryover from such a dramatic playoff series, neither of these teams can afford to dwell too much on the past as either a predictor or a motivator this year. “It’s a new year,” Flyers captain Mike Richards said. “They’ve got new players.” Winger Nathan Horton is in for Boston, acquired from Florida in a trade for defenseman Dennis Wideman. The hole created by the loss of Wideman was filled by Tomas Kaberle, the veteran D-man from Toronto. Center Brad Marchand, who showed promise in the playoffs last year, is a frontline player now. Still, there are plenty of guys who were in the handshake line after the Flyers completed their rare comeback to win that series. The question is whether that matters. “Are they going to play harder than they did last year?” Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. “I don’t think that’s possible. You’re playing for the Stanley Cup. I would think everything will be determined by these two teams, this year, and how they play on the ice.” One of the overlooked aspects of last year’s series was that the Flyers and Bruins had thoroughly uninspiring regular seasons. The Bruins, with 91 points, finished third in their division. They had home-ice advantage in the second round because the Flyers (88 points, third in their division) had an even less impressive regular season — and because the eighth-seeded Montreal Canadiens had upset the No. 1-seeded Washington Capitals. A playoff matchup between the No. 6 seed Bruins and No. 7 seed Flyers didn’t exactly promise glamour and excitement. But the two teams were evenly matched, and their series turned out to be a classic. Guess what? They are very similar, very evenly matched teams again, only better. The Bruins finished with 103 points, first in the Northeast Division. The Flyers won their division with 106 points. “They have a good team over there,” Richards said. “Big, strong, physical. Great goaltending. Good defense. Forwards that can put the puck in the net.” “They’re a big strong team,” Laviolette said. “They had a good year. They’ve got good goaltending, depth in all positions. There’s a reason they had See SHERIDAN, Page 5B

ON THE MARK

By MARK DUDEK Times Leader Correspondent Easily the best card of the young season tonight with yet another 16-race slate on the agenda. Europan Union is a red-hot pacer and he’s my choice to repeat in the featured $60,000 Open Pace. The 4-year-old No Pan Intended gelding has never been better and last week he showed why. After getting hard used early on from post six, driver Ron Pierce was able to gain a pocket seat behind speedster Western Shore. As they thundered down the lane, the Erv Miller trainee had the pacesetter measured and took his fourth straight victory in a strong 1:50.4.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Romero leads Jays over Yanks The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Ricky Romero got right back up after a frightening line drive flattened him, twice retired Alex Rodriguez in dicey spots and pitched the Toronto Blue Jays past the New York Yankees 5-3 Friday night. Jose Bautista hit his ALleading ninth home run and J.P. Arencibia also connected for Toronto. Speedy Rajai Davis returned from the disabled list and stole two bases, then scored when reliever David Robertson botched a first-andthird pickoff play and made a wild throw. Indians 9, Tigers 5

CLEVELAND — Carlos Santana hit a grand slam with one out in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a 9-5 win over the Detroit Tigers as the surging Indians extended their home winning streak to 11 games Friday night. It was the latest dramatic win for the Indians, who mobbed Santana at home plate after the switch-hitter drove a 3-1 pitch off Joaquin Benoit (0-1) over the right-field wall.

Mariners 5, Red Sox 4

BOSTON — Jason Vargas pitched seven solid innings and got his first victory of the season as the Seattle Mariners beat the Boston Red Sox for their fourth straight win. Jack Cust hit an RBI double in the seventh to give Seattle the lead as the Mariners roughed up reliever Bobby Jenks (1-2), who was booed after allowing two runs in the inning and giving up Boston’s one-run lead. Orioles 10, White Sox 4

CHICAGO — Matt Wieters homered and drove in four runs Friday night, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the White Sox in Chicago’s first game without suspended manager Ozzie Guillen. Luke Scott also homered and Brian Roberts drove in three runs for the Orioles. Royals 4, Twins 3

Marquis, Nix carry Nationals to victory The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Jason Marquis pitched a five-hitter to beat Tim Lincecum, and reserve outfielder Laynce Nix made the most of a rare start by connecting for a two-run homer that carried the Washington Nationals to a 3-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night. Marquis (3-0) struck out seven and walked none in his fourth major league shutout and first since 2009 with Colorado. Always a dangerous hitter, he helped his own cause with an RBI single and is batting .385. Marlins 7, Reds 6

CINCINNATI — John Buck hit a three-run home run in Florida’s five-run first inning and the Marlins held on to beat Cincinnati. Emilio Bonifacio, Hanley Ramirez and Gaby Sanchez each had two hits for the Marlins, who have won four of five and improved to 5-0 on Fridays. Brewers 5, Astros 0

ATLANTA — Nick Punto drove in two runs with an 11thinning triple after St. Louis rallied in the ninth, giving the surging Cardinals a victory over the Atlanta Braves. Braves rookie Cory Gearrin (0-1) dug his own hole, plunking Ryan Theriot in the left leg and walking pinch-hitter Mark Hamilton. The right-hander was one out away from escaping, but Punto drove one into the right-field corner for the first big league hit allowed by Gearrin in 4 2-3 innings since being called up. Brewers 5, Astros 0

HOUSTON — Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun homered and Shaun Marcum allowed three hits over seven shutout innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a victory against the Houston Astros. Pirates 3, Rockies 0

427-foot drive before trotting around the bases. The big slugger is batting .412 (14 for 34) with three homers and six RBIs against Pelfrey. With the Phillies up 4-0 in the sixth, Howard cleared the bases with his 10th career slam. He connected on a 2-2 pitch from Dillon Gee and sent the ball very high and just over the fence in rightcenter for his 26th career multihomer game. The two home runs tied Howard with Del Ennis for second place on Philadelphia’s career list with 259, trailing Mike Schmidt’s 548. Howard came up in the seventh with the bases loaded again but struck out with a hefty swing against left-hander Tim Byrdak. The six RBIs upped Howard’s total this month to 27, setting a franchise record for April. Cervelli was 2-for-13 with an RBI in three games during his rehab assignment. The Yankees road trip continues with a four-game series against Gwinnett (Georgia) beginning today. Scranton/WilkesBarre’s David Phelps (1-2, 4.42 ERA) is scheduled to start. Gwinnet will counter with righthander Julio Teheran (2-0, 2.25 ERA), the top-rated prospect in the Atlanta Braves system.

Grizzlies finish off No. 1 Spurs The Assocaited Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Zach Randolph had 31 points and 11 rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies advanced to their first Western Conference semifinals and made NBA history in knocking off the topseeded San Antonio Spurs 9991 on Friday night. Memphis had been the franchise best known for empty seats and the unenviable NBA mark for playoff futility at 0-12 after being swept in its first three appearances. This time, a third straight sellout crowd cheered every

bucket with a couple signs GRIZZLIES begging the Grizzlies to “Finish Them” in a town in SPURS desperate need of a hero. The Grizzlies needed 10 seasons, but they have become just that as only the second No. 8 seed to upset a No. 1 seed since the NBA expanded the opening series to a best-ofseven. They will play Oklahoma City in the Western Conference semifinals.

Lightning take Game 1 vs. Caps By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON — Sean Bergenheim, Dwayne Roloson and the rest of the Tampa Bay Lightning picked up right where they left off. Bergenheim scored early, Steve Downie had a goal and an assist, and Steven Stamkos netted the go-ahead goal on a power play, helping the Lightning beat the top-seeded Washington Capitals 4-2 on Friday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series. Roloson, Tampa Bay’s 41-yearold goalie, made 26 saves. Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was held without a point and limited to two shots. Alexander Semin and Eric Fehr scored for Washington, which led 2-1 before allowing Downie and Stamkos to put Tampa Bay ahead with goals less than 31⁄2 minutes apart late in the second period. Dominic Moore added an empty-netter with 40 seconds

left for the fifth-seeded Lightning, who have won four straight games since falling behind Pittsburgh 3-1 in the first round. The Lightning played most of Friday’s game without veteran left wing Simon Gagne, who was helped to the dressing room after his helmet banged on the ice when he fell hard following a hit by Capitals defenseman Scott Hannan. The Lightning said Gagne would be re-evaluated Saturday. Game 2 is Sunday night at Washington. Roloson got the shutout and Bergenheim provided the only goal when the Lightning edged the Penguins 1-0 in Game 7 on Wednesday night. After that series ended, Tampa Bay flew straight from Pittsburgh to Washington, then was back on the ice less than 45 hours later for Friday’s second-round opener. The lack of time off didn’t seem to bother the Lightning.

The Capitals, on the other hand, wrapped up their first series against the New York Rangers in five games last Saturday and had nearly a week off. Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau made light of the “Rest vs. Rust” story line Thursday, but perhaps there was something to it. In the first round, rookie goalie Michal Neuvirth and the Capitals allowed the Rangers to score a grand total of two goals in the three games played at Washington. The Lightning surpassed that total in a span of two periods. Neuvirth finished with 20 saves Friday. He entered the day leading the NHL with a 1.38 goals-against average and second with a .946 save percentage. No. 1 in the save category? Roloson. Tampa Bay’s penalty kill was again tremendous, holding Washington to 0 for 5. The Lightning have killed 39 of 40 penalties this postseason.

Philadelphia, Boston revisit epic collapse and comeback UP NEXT

By DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Boston’s collapse was one for the ages. The Flyers had a comeback for the history books. Down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series, then down 3-0 in Game 7, the Philadelphia Flyers erased the long odds and pulled off a shocking rally to win the decisive game 4-3 and move on last season to the Eastern Conference finals. Those kind of runs happen only, oh, every 30-plus years or so. In fact, the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York Islanders were the only NHL teams to overcome 3-0 deficits to win a best-of-seven playoff series. Here they are again, one year later ... in the same round. The 2010 East chokers vs. the 2010 East champs.

GAME 1 Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers 3 p.m. today TV Coverage: NBC

The Bruins sounded this week as if they were giving testimony before a congressional committee: They’re not here to talk about the past. “Last year was last year, this year is this year,” Bruins winger Shawn Thornton said. “Half the team has been turned over. We’ve brought in some great people. So, it’s a whole new year.” The Flyers, well, they also tried to insist this is a brand new series and their run of wins in Game 4, Game 5, Game 6 and Game 7 mean as much this May as playoff wins from 30 years ago. They just weren’t convinced

Boston had forgotten about its flop. “I’m sure they’re going to use that to their advantage,” Flyers center Danny Briere said Friday. “But at the same time, it goes both ways. We might be in their heads, as well. We have that confidence that no matter what happens, we seem to play well when we’re playing against them.” The Bruins, of course, want to put the series to rest. Once the puck drops in Game 1 today in Philadelphia, Boston will surely have an extra shot of motivation against the team that spoiled their Stanley Cup run. “It’s always a new situation, it’s a new opportunity, and that’s how we’re looking at it,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “Just a new opportunity for us to get past these guys and hopefully win this series.”

Laviolette said the Flyers also have big motivation: Win a Stanley Cup. But it is true — like all rosters from year to year — that these teams are quite different. Philadelphia’s Simon Gagne scored the Game 7 winner a year ago, but was traded in the offseason to Tampa Bay. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has been replaced by Tim Thomas. And Bruins forward Nathan Horton, a newcomer, scored the overtime winner in Game 7 to give them a win over the Montreal Canadiens in the first round. Brian Boucher’s run as the starting goalie ended in Game 5 when he sprained the MCL in his left knee. That opened up the job for Michael Leighton, who led the Flyers to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals. But Boucher is back in net, for now, after the

tryout. For more information, call Joe at 814-1430. Valley Regional Girls Softball League will continue to accept registrations for its 18 senior division through May 15.

Flyers used a three-goalie carousel in a seven-game first round vs. the Sabres. Boucher, as well, brushed off the significance of last year’s upset. “Last year plays no role into this year. This is a whole new year,” he said. “There are new faces in both locker rooms.” New and old Flyers say they can win again — just maybe save the rallies for another day. “Hopefully, we don’t spot them a three-game lead again,” Briere said. “That would be a lot easier.” Sometimes, that win-or-else mentality fuels a postseason run. The Flyers won Game 6 in overtime in Buffalo and returned home to rout the Sabres in Game 7 to complete yet another series comeback, this one from down 3-2.

success this year.” With the possible exception of the goaltending part, they could just as easily be talking about the Flyers. Both of these teams play physical hockey. Both have oversized, intimidating defensemen. After reaching the Finals last year, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren added quality depth — Andrej Meszaros and Sean O’Donnell on defense, Nikolai Zherdev and Kris Versteeg up front — rather than a superstar type or a goalie. The latter aspect of the game was nearly the Flyers’ undoing in the first round. But with the return of Chris Pronger and the raising of the urgency level, the Flyers played their best hockey in months to win the final two games of their series with Buffalo. If they can begin this series at that level, they will be just fine with Brian Boucher in goal. Boucher, who grew up a Canadiens fan in Bruins country, has been solid except for those two odd-angle goals that got him benched in Game 5 against Buffalo. He may not be Thomas, but then, he wasn’t Ryan Miller or Martin Brodeur — two other goalies he has outlasted in the playoffs. But the Flyers have to find that same high gear from the start. Relying on what happened last year would be as foolish for the Flyers as brooding about it would be for the Bruins. “We’re going to try not to get in that position, a big hole,” Richards said. “We know we’re in their heads,” Danny Briere said. “That’s going to be with them the whole series. We’re using that to our advantage as well. We’d like to get off to a better start this time and not spot them a three-game lead.” That would be like counting on Gagne to fire another gamewinner past Rask.

Bubba Watson leads Zurich Classic by 1 stroke The Associated Press

AVONDALE, La. — Bubba Watson shot a 4-under 68 in shifting wind conditions Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Josh Teater after the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Watson, the Torrey Pines winner in late January, had a 10-under 134 total at TPC Louisiana. The long-hitting Watson eagled the par-5 11th — his second hole of the round — for the second time, holing a 20-footer to get to 8 under. He added a 4-foot birdie putt on 13 and a 13-footer on 14, but bogeyed the 18th when he hit his third shot over the green from a bunker. He also birdied the seventh with a 3-footer. Teater shot a 66, dropping two strokes with a double bogey on the par-5 18th. John Rollins was 8 under after a 69. Dean Wilson matched the course record with a 64 to join John Senden (67), Jason Dufner (69), Matt Jones (71) and Webb Simpson (69) at 7 under. Simpson counted New Orleans Hornets star guard Chris Paul among his gallery. Steve Stricker (68), David Mathis (68) and Tommy Gainey (71) were 6 under. Luke Donald topped a group at 5 under after a 71. He lost a playoff last week at Hilton Head, missing a chance to jump from No. 3 to No. 1 in the world.

SEOUL, South Korea — Lee Westwood shot a 4-under 68 in the second round of the Ballantine’s Championship on Friday, bouncing back from a rough first day to stay six strokes off the pace. Brett Rumford posted a 63 to get to 10 under, putting the Australian three strokes clear of Miguel Angel Jimenez and

Soren Kjeldsen. Westwood’s opening round included a final-hole double bogey at the Blackstone Golf Club at Icheon. But the world No. 1 had a solid performance Friday, finishing with a birdie. The Englishman, who won the Indonesian Masters last weekend, had a chance to move closer to the top but had three bogeys in his round. Rumford had nine birdies to move into the lead at the halfway point.

“I struck a little bit of magic out there today and it’s great to have these shots up your sleeve going into the weekend,” said Rumford, who was the runnerup in last year’s tournament. “I had seven weeks off before playing in Malaysia and China the past two weeks, so I’m happy about today.” Rain was in the forecast for the weekend, making Rumford’s position even more important. “The more shots up your sleeve the better going into the

weekend — if the forecast is bad it’s going to play very, very tricky,” he said. Kjeldsen carded a 66 to move to 7 under, while Jimenez added a 67 to his first-round 70. Welshman Rhys Davies, James Morrison of England and first-round leader Damien McGrane of Ireland were a shot back at 6 under, and American Dustin Johnson was at 5 under after a 69. Three-time major winner Ernie Els is in danger of missing

the cut after a second-round 73 left him at 2 over. The $2.8 million tournament is co-sanctioned by the Asian tour, the European tour and the Korea PGA.

NFL DRAFT

Wisniewski picked by Oakland PSU offensive lineman follows the footsteps of his uncle, who also played for Raiders. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

He had a hunch this might be coming. Stefen Wisniewski knew that following in his uncle’s footsteps with the Oakland Raiders was a real possibility when the Raiders hired Steve Wisniewski back in January. Both men were standout offensive linemen for Penn State. Now uncle and nephew will join up in Oakland, the same franchise that Steve Wisniewski played 13 NFL seasons for, making eight pro bowls. The Raiders selected Stefen Wisniewski in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday, taking him 48th overall. A three-year starter and a contributor all four years with the Nittany Lions, Stefen Wisniewski will play center for the Raiders and be instructed by Steve, an assistant offensive line coach for the team. “I thought that if I was around at 48 that it was very likely (to end up with Oakland),” Stefen Wisniewski told reporters Friday night. “But there were some other teams interested before – could have happened – it didn’t, and I’m thrilled to be a Raider. “I’m so glad I was still around for their pick.” Wisniewski is the third mem-

ber of his family to be selected in the NFL draft. His father, Leo Wisniewski, was a nose tackle who was drafted out of Penn State in 1982 by the Baltimore Colts. Steve Wisniewski was a guard selected by the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 but was immediately traded to the Los Angeles Raiders, where he played through the 2001 season. In a quirky coincidence, all three Wisniewskis were selected in the second round. Leo was taken 28th overall and Steve went 29th overall. “Everyone’s thrilled,” Stefen Wisniewski said. “My dad, obviously, knows I’m in good hands

playing for Steve. I mean, we grew up Raider fans, grew up cheering for Steve. It just feels right. “(Steve’s) not going to go easy on me, that’s for sure. I’m glad, because he knows what it took. He knows what it takes to be a great offensive lineman in the NFL and he’s going to do everything in his power to make sure I become a great one. And that’s what I’m looking forward to.” Out of Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh, Stefen saw reps at first-team guard for the Lions in 2007 as a true freshman. He was a full-time starter the next three seasons, playing two years at right guard sandwiched

Eagles select DB Jarrett By ROB MAADDI AP Pro Football Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Jaiquawn Jarrett’s transition to the NFL should be an easy one. After playing four years at Lincoln Financial Field as a member of the Temple Owls, Jarrett gets to stay there as a pro. The Philadelphia Eagles selected the defensive back with the 54th overall pick in the NFL draft on Friday night. “This right here is one of the greatest situations with my family right down the road,” Jarrett said. “I played in the Eagles stadium for the last four years, so to be able to play for Coach (Andy) Reid as an Eagle, is a dream come true.” Jarrett, who was a four-year starter with the hometown Owls, adds depth in a secondary that has lacked a big-play safety since the departure of Brian Dawkins. Jarrett, listed at 6-foot and 196 pounds, played mainly free safety at Temple. Jarrett had 74 tackles and two interceptions in his senior season. Scouts say he’s an intelligent player who is aggressive against the run and solid in pass coverage. “I’m gonna bring physical

toughness and a smart player,” Jarrett said. “I’m real disciplined. I’m gonna do whatever necessary to help the team win. That’s what I’m all about. I’m physical enough to show up in run support and I have enough skills to prevent the deep ball.” Nate Allen, also a secondround pick, started 13 games at free safety for the Eagles as a rookie last year. He sustained a season-ending leg injury in December, but should be ready when the season starts. Quintin Mikell, a former Pro Bowl pick, was Philadelphia’s strong safety. He’ll be a free agent. Jarrett ran just a 4.62 in the 40 at the scouting combine. That may have caused some teams to shy away. Not the Eagles. “They showed a lot of interest,” he said. “They worked me out several times. They saw something in me other teams didn’t see and I really appreciate that.” Jarrett is a two-time first-team All-MAC honoree and played in every game of his collegiate career with 43 starts. He was the recipient of the 2010 National Football Foundation & College Football Hall of Fame ScholarAthlete.

reinstated while a court in St. Louis hears the league’s appeal. “When I went to visit, they told me I would not slip past pick No. 38,” Williams said, his eyes still wet. “And I respect them 100 percent. Williams left school with two years of eligibility remaining. He rushed for 1,655 yards and 21 touchdowns, averaging 5.6 yards per carry, as a redshirt freshman in 2009, but was limited by a hamstring injury last season. “The passion that I play with separates myself from a lot of people on the job,” he said. Williams said the prolonged stay wasn’t that bad for his family and friends because “they got another day out in New York.” Earlier, the fans’ mood over the labor dispute hadn’t changed as, for the second straight night, they showered Goodell with boos. And that was well before the most recent court decision. Two high-profile quarterbacks preceded Williams and his entourage to the stage. Cincinnati selected TCU quarterback Andy Dalton. The Bengals’ incumbent, Carson Palmer, has demanded a trade, and the addition of Dalton could pave the way for Palmer’s exit — whenever the league allows it. “We spent a lot of time on this, no question,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “It’s a big, important, important pick, important piece.” San Francisco immediately traded up with Denver to get the next spot and select the next QB: Colin Kaepernick of Nevada. He also was an outstanding baseball prospect, a former pitcher with a powerful arm. Kaepernick was watching the draft with his family in Turlock, Calif., about a 2-hour drive from the 49ers’ practice facility in Santa Clara. He was so excited he was contemplating making the drive immediately — even though he might be turned away when he gets there. “That just makes it that much easier for my family, friends to come and see me,” Kaepernick said. “I know everybody in Reno was hoping I went to the 49ers as well. For me, it was the perfect pick.” Patriots coach Bill Belichick pulled a surprise to begin the round: He stood still. Given their willingness to trade down every year, the Patriots heard from several teams interested in that slot before taking Virginia cornerback Ras-I Dowling. Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett announced the pick.

around the 2009 season at center. Raiders coach Hue Jackson said multiple times Friday that Wisniewski will play center in Oakland. “He’s very smart, very athletic, very tough,” Jackson said. “His body type will be able to handle big nose guards that we face in the NFL. We play a lot of 3-4 defensive football teams, so there’s going to be a lot of big people that are going to be playing against him week-in and weekout.” Stefen said he was well aware of the high expectations Raiders fans will have for him because of the tremendous impact Steve made for the franchise. But considering he already went through that situation when he chose to play at Penn State – Steve was a two-time AllAmerican for the Lions and won a national title with the 1986 team – Stefen said he wasn’t fazed by heading to Oakland. “To be honest, I like that,” he said. “I kind of looked at that as a bar that was set high, and I made it my goal to exceed those expectations and try and be better than they were at Penn State. And that’s the goal I’m going to set here with the Raiders. “I’m going to try and be better than my uncle. That’s a really high goal. I realize it’s tough, but I’m going to set my goal high and we’ll see how close I can get to reaching it.” 2011 NFL Team-by-Team Draft Through Three Rounds (April 28-29) Arizona 1 (5) Patrick Peterson, db, LSU. 2 (38) Ryan Williams, rb, Virginia Tech. 3 (69) Rob Housler, te, Florida Atlantic.

and we will advise the clubs as soon as possible on the next steps,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman said he understood that the lockout would be reinstated. The Vikings hosted first-round draft pick Christian Ponder on Friday, and spent the entire day trying to get him up to speed. “When it was not a lockout, they were allowed to spend time here to get (playbooks),” Spielman said. “Now that the lockout’s back in, he’ll probably be leaving here shortly.” New Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak said he was disappointed that the stay had been granted. “As coaches we just want to get to work and get the players in the building and get going forward. Today was a positive day in that regard,” he said. “It was nice having the guys in and being able to see some of the guys who are in town.” In an e-mail to The Associated Press, New York Giants center Shaun O’Hara quickly reacted to the ruling: “yes just saw.....fun while it lasted!” The 2-1decision from a panel of the 8th Circuit was issued by Judges Steven Colloton, Kermit Bye and Duane Benton. It included a lengthy dissent from Bye, who suggested temporary stays should be issued only in emergencies. “The NFL has not persuaded me this is the type of emergency situation which justifies the grant of a temporary stay of the district court’s order pending our decision on a motion for a stay itself,” Bye wrote. “If we ultimately grant the motion for a stay, the NFL can easily re-establish its lockout.” Bye also said the league hadn’t shown proof it would suffer irreparable harm without a lockout in place and had asked for the stay so it wouldn’t be forced to run its $9 billion business without a collective bargaining agreement in place. “The NFL claimed such operations would be ’a complex process that requires time to coordinate,”’ Bye wrote. “This contention is severely undermined by the fact that the NFL had, within

we have to find it right now and not wait until we’re down 2-0 or 3-0. On Saturday I think you’ll see a different team.” If head coach John Hynes has his way, the Penguins will not only be a more intense team, but a better one. The only way to win each game is to get better with each game, he said. It’s also important to take the lesson that was learned by going down 2-0 against Norfolk and apply it to the Charlotte series, Hynes said. It’s a lesson about playing with intensity. “Did we really learn the lesson of what we need to do to win hockey games?” he said. “We went through a series (Norfolk), got down, and found a way to

a day of the district court’s order denying a stay, already planned post-injunction operations which would allow the players to have access to club and workout facilities, receive playbooks, meet with coaches and so forth. “Because I expect our court will be resolving the actual request for a stay in short order, I see little practical need for granting an emergency temporary stay in this non-emergency situation.” The ruling was the first victory for the NFL in the bitter labor fight and it came from a venue considered more conservative and favorable to businesses than the federal courts in Minnesota, where the collective bargaining system was established in the early 1990s. Colloton and Benton were appointed by President George W. Bush. Bye was appointed by President Clinton. The appeals court is expected to rule next week on the NFL’s request for a more permanent stay that would last through its appeal of the injunction. That process is expected to take 6-8 weeks. Jim Quinn, the lead attorney for the players, downplayed Friday’s order. “Routine grant of stay and totally expected,” he said. “The only surprise is that Judge Bye is so strongly against giving them even a tiny stay because the league obviously can’t show it is necessary.” The order was just the latest in a dizzying week of legal wrangling. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson late Monday ordered the end of the lockout, calling it illegal, and she denied the NFL’s appeal on Wednesday night. That led to a crazy couple of days where teams and players had no rules to guide them. On Friday, the NFL opened up team facilities to players for the first time in nearly two months. And the players flocked to the facilities, exchanging smiles and high-fives with their teammates. Tony Romo and Jason Witten even did some sprints on a Dallas Cowboys practice field. “From the players’ standpoint, I think everybody is pleased we’re not locked out anymore, especially the rookies,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said on CNBC, his first public comments about the dispute since he became one of the10 plaintiffs in a federal antitrust lawsuit still pending against the NFL. come back and play. I don’t think that needs to be manufactured, it needs to be who we are and what we are. Game to game, shift to shift. We have some work to do in that department.” Spotting Charlotte a 2-0 series lead may be a lot more dangerous than it was with Norfolk. The Checkers have a high-powered offense that is spread through their four lines. They are a deep, talented team that made the Penguins pay in Game 1 on Thursday by scoring two power-play goals. A good way to avoid a 2-0 hole is to score the first goal, according to Penguins center Joe Vitale. “It gets the guys jacked up, the confidence starts rolling and it snowballs from there,” he said. “You can’t get frustrated. You have to keep with it and eventually things will pay off. You have to focus on the process on getting the goals.”

Hamlin makes it 2 wins in 2 nights By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

RICHMOND, Va. — Make it two wins in two nights for Denny Hamlin at his home track. Hamlin grabbed the lead for the first time 44 laps into the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway on Friday night and dominated the rest of the 250-lap race. He lost the lead briefly when he pitted under a green flag, again when Aric Almirola got underneath him after the first restart and then grabbed it back six laps later for good. The victory is the 11th of Hamlin’s career in the Nationwide Series and came one night after he passed Kyle Busch on the last lap to win his charity race at the track. Unlike that race, in which Hamlin needed all 75 laps to rally from starting at the back of the field, he was 11th on the starting grid and enjoyed huge leads most of the night. He led 199 of the 251 laps and made it look too easy every time he had the chance. When Kelly Bires’ spun into the Turn 4 wall for the first caution on lap 124, Hamlin was leading by 8 seconds. And when he opened a lead of nearly 6 seconds over Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with under 30 laps to go, Hamlin was able to try to save fuel to make it to the checkered flag. Stenhouse, however, brought out the second caution when he ran out of gas himself on lap 243, and when Almirola also ran out of gas behind him, Hamlin opted to pit to be safe. On the restart on lap 250, he had Paul Menard behind him, followed by points leader Justin Allgaier. Hamlin easily outran Menard on the first lap under green and was already cruising when a crash in the fourth turn brought out another caution, clinching Hamlin’s victory.

RICHMOND, Va. — Juan Pablo Montoya and his team needed some time to get up to full speed Friday. When they did, they ended up winning the pole for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Saturday night. “It’s exciting. We unloaded this morning and it was a bit of a headache getting the car to run at the beginning. It was dragging a lot and when we finally got it rolling, we felt like we had a pretty decent race car.” Montoya said after turning a fast lap at 128.639 mph. “To come here and get it done is exciting.” Montoya earned his second No. 1 starting spot of the season, his seventh overall and the first of his career on a track shorter than a mile. He looks forward to trying to back the effort up under the lights at D-shaped, 0.75-mile Richmond International Raceway. “If the cars runs somewhere near what it did in practice, we might have a chance,” he said. Regan Smith qualified second, the best starting spot of his career, at 128.352 mph. The young driver has the best average qualifying spot of the season at 7.75, and is confused. “We’ve been qualifying really well this year and I wish I knew why because the past two or three years, I haven’t qualified to save my life,” he said.

It the Chesterfield native’s second at the track 15 miles from his hometown. Menard was second, followed by Allgaier, Elliott Sadler and Brad Keselowski. The five were the only cars still on the lead lap at the finish, in part because Almirola, who crossed the finish line fifth, was penalized for speeding on pit road and dropped to 14th overall. Stenhouse, who shared the points lead with Allgaier coming into the race, wound up 21st.

The Week Ahead

Watching assembly lines We’ll find out how manufacturers are doing when the Commerce Department reports factory orders for March on Tuesday. Economists will be looking for any signs that rising prices are starting to hurt business. The overall number can fluctuate – in February, they fell because the government ordered fewer military planes and businesses bought fewer computers, turbines and power generators. It’s expected that orders rose in March.

General Electric head leaves Federal Reserve

Jeffrey Immelt, the chief executive officer for General Electric Co., has resigned from the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, citing increased demands on his time. The New York Fed says the resignation was effective March 9. Immelt had served on the board since 2006. President Barack Obama tapped Immelt to run a presidential council on job creation and competitiveness in January. The New York Fed is one of 12 regional banks that are part of the Federal Reserve system.

Kellogg raises dividend

Kellogg Co. will raise its quarterly dividend 6 percent to 43 cents in the third quarter of this year. Until then, the cereal maker said, the dividend will remain at 40.5 cents, where it’s been since August. Dividends are payouts that companies give to shareholders to share profits. An increased dividend can be a way for a company to use cash on hand to increase its stock price.

Amazon sorry for outage

Amazon.com is apologizing for a data-center outage that brought down major websites including Foursquare and Reddit a week ago. It is offering affected Web services customers a 10-day credit. The company isn’t disclosing how much the credit will cost it. Amazon Web Services accounts for only a few percent of Amazon’s total revenue, but the company has high hopes for the business. The service rents out computer time by the hour. The outage was a major stumble for the service. Amazon is still restoring some of the computers brought down in the incident, which began eight days ago. In a post-mortem report on Friday, Amazon said human error set off the outage. An automated error-recovery mechanism then went out of control, and many computers became “stuck” in recovery mode.

Kia Motors Corp. is recalling more than 58,000 Spectra compact cars registered in cold-weather states, including Pennsylvania, because the gas tanks could fall off and cause a fire. The recall affects Spectra LD models from the 2004 to 2007 model years in 20 states and Washington, D.C., the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday. The cars, built from Nov. 7, 2003, through March 6, 2007, have straps that hold the gas tank to the frame. When exposed to road salt, the straps can rust and the tank can fall to the ground, causing a fuel leak and possibly a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank straps with zinc-coated parts at no cost to owners. Kia will mail letters to car owners in June, after dealers get parts to fix the problem. Owners can get more information by contacting Kia at 1-800-333-4542 or NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236. The recall was announced the same day the company said quarterly profit rose 91 percent as sales revenue and volume increased in South Korea and overseas amid higher vehicle prices.

Companies can’t byte back

ary-March period this year, it surpassed Microsoft in net income, too. On Thursday, Microsoft reported that revenue from the Windows operating system declined for the second straight quarter because people are buying fewer Windows computers.

NEW YORK — Consumer technology companies reporting financial results this week are looking like rowboats bobbing in the wake of Apple Inc.’s supertanker. Close to oblivion in 1997, Apple is now the world’s second-most valuable company, after Exxon Mobil Corp. On April 20, it reported net income of $5.99 billion for the Januaryto-March period, nearly double that of a year ago. Apple’s ascendancy has produced many losers and a few winners, as underscored over the past two weeks:

Nokia Corp.: loser Nokia said this week that it will slash 7,000 jobs through layoffs and outsourcing. It still sells more phones than anyone else, but it’s losing share to Apple, especially when it comes to smartphones. Research firm Strategy Analytics also said revenue from Apple’s iPhone sales surpassed that of Nokia’s phones in the January-to-March period.

Microsoft Corp.: loser Apple dethroned Microsoft as the world’s most valuable technology company a year ago. In its midfall report, it surpassed Microsoft in quarterly revenue. In the Janu-

Research In Motion Ltd.: loser The maker of the BlackBerry is in a predicament that’s similar to Nokia’s. RIM company’s high-end phones are looking old compared with the iPhone and ones running Google Inc.’s An-

droid software. They aren’t selling as well as the company expected.

Verizon Wireless: winner The No. 1 U.S. cellphone carrier posted a jump in new contract-signing customers — the more profitable kind — after it introduced its version of the iPhone on Feb. 10, which ended AT&T Inc.’s exclusive grip on the device in the U.S. AT&T and Sprint Nextel Corp: mixed Verizon’s new subscribers came at the expense of AT&T and Sprint Nextel Corp. But neither carrier saw signs of current customers moving to AT&T appeared to be splitting new iPhone customers evenly with Verizon Wireless. Sprint lost lucrative contract customers in the quarter, but continued its long turnaround by signing up a record number of people on cheaper, contract-free plans.

left behind,” Bernanke said. Lending to creditworthy people and small businesses in troubled communities can stimulate economic activity that can generate local tax revenues, he noted. Tax revenues can then be spent in the community redeveloping vacant properties, training people for new jobs, or on other economic development programs. That leads to more hiring and paychecks that can help poor homeowners avoid foreclosure, he said.

The recession officially ended two years ago. Bernanke said the national economy is growing at a moderate pace and that job creation is gradually improving, repeating comments he made earlier this week at a news conference after the Fed’s policy meeting. But the unemployment rate remains high. For many poor and working-class Americans, it doesn’t feel like a recovery. “Our economy is far from where we would like it to be, and many people and neighborhoods are in danger of being

Car makers will release U.S. sales figures for April on Tuesday. The numbers are expected to show how much the Japanese earthquake and tsunami haves hurt the industry. The March 11 disaster forced auto parts factories in Tokyo to shut down, but that had little effect on sales in March. U.S. manufacturers warned that supplies could still tighten. March sales rose 17 percent. Consumers bought smaller cars and SUVs because higher gas prices made fuel efficient vehicles more attractive.

Investors will learn about more than bleach sales when Clorox reports on Tuesday. The company makes everything from kitty litter to salad dressing, so it’s a good indicator for consumer spending. In the previous quarter, profits and revenue fell because consumers bought less hand sanitizer than they did a year earlier, when everyone was worried about swine flu. The company also had a charge to write down the value of its Burt’s Bees business.

Water co. requests a rate hike

By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Typical residential and commercial customers in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties that rely on Pennsylvania American Water for their H2O could see 13.8 percent and 16.5 percent rate hikes, respectively, if the Public Utility Commission approves a request made Friday by the Voorhees, N.J.-based company. Pennsylvania American Water filed an application with the PUC requesting a $6.42 a month increase in rates for a typical residential customer. The company’s request would bring a typical monthly residential water bill, using 4,150 gallons per month, to $54.87. The company’s request would bring a typical monthly commercial water bill, using 23,000 gallons per month, to $242.14. Currently a customer using that amount of water pays $207.80. The request was made for customers statewide, though percentages vary from system to system. If the request is approved without changes, the company would realize an annual revenue increase of approximately $71 million. The company, which is the largest water utility in the state, serves approximately 134,000 customers in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties, according to water company spokeswoman Susan Turcmanovich. System improvements totaling about $533 million since the company’s last rate increase in 2009 were cited as the primary reason for the latest rate increase request. “This rate request is driven by the prudent capital investments that we’ve made to maintain and upgrade our infrastructure and to ensure that our drinking water meets all quality standards,” company President Kathy L. Pape said. Pape, who served on the 2008 Governor’s Sustainable Water Infrastructure Task Force, noted that many communities are facing crumbling water infrastructure and drastic rate hikes, because they chose to defer maintenance and badly needed system improvements. According to the Task Force, water systems across Pennsylvania require capital investments totaling $36.5 billion over the next 20 years. “We believe it is more cost-effective in the long run to proactively invest to make needed system improvements, rather than put customers at risk of serious service and water quality issues,” Pape said. The company’s filing requests that the new rates become effective June 28, but that’s unlikely. PUC spokeswoman Denise McCracken said the request would probably be suspended while the PUC begins “an investigation to determine if the increase is needed and is a true reflection of costs prior to making a decision.”

FDA approves Sanofi vaccine for toddlers Menactra was approved in 2005 for use in people ages 11 through 55 for the prevention of an invasive meningococcal disease.

By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

SWIFTWATER – The Food and Drug Administration has approved local vaccine maker Sanofi Pasteur’s request to market its meningococcal vaccine for use in toddlers and infants as young as 9 months of age. The vaccine, called Menactra, was approved in 2005 for use in people ages 11 through 55 for the prevention of an invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis serogroups A, C, Y and W-135. In 2007, the minimum age was dropped to 2. More than 36 million doses of Menactra vaccine have been distributed in the United States since its licensure in 2005. Menveo, another meningococcal vaccine that’s made by Sa-

MENINGOCOCCAL DISEASE A serious bacterial infection that strikes between 1,000 and 2,600 Americans each year. Approximately 10 percent of individuals who contract meningococcal disease, which includes meningitis, will die. Of those who survive, up to one in five suffer permanent disabilities such as hearing loss, neurological damage and limb amputations. Meningococcal disease can be hard to recognize, especially in its early stages, because symptoms are similar to those of more common viral illnesses. Unlike more common illnesses, the disease can progress quickly and may cause death or disability in just a single day. — Source: Sanofi Pasteur

nofi’s competitor Novartis, is also approved for use in the older group but the approval of Sanofi’s two-dose schedule for infants and children 9 months through

23 months of age marks the first U.S. approval of a meningococcal vaccine for this age group. “The approval of Menactra vaccine for infants is a signifi-

cant advancement toward potentially eliminating the threat of this serious disease in this vulnerable population for included serogroups,” said Dr. Michael Decker, vice president for scientific and medical affairs at Sanofi Pasteur. “With this approval, it is now possible to help protect persons from 9 months through 55 years of age.” Dr. Karen Midthun, director of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, noted that “the highest rate of meningococcal disease occurs in children under one year of age.” According to an FDA release announcing the approval for the younger age, “although the rates of meningococcal disease are low in the

United States, infants and toddlers are more susceptible to getting this serious illness. Meningococcal disease is particularly dangerous because it progresses rapidly and can cause death within hours. Early symptoms are often difficult to distinguish from influenza and other common illnesses.” Sanofi Pasteur submitted a supplemental Biologics License Application in June 2010. The FDA approval of Menactra vaccine for infants was based on results of one Phase II and three Phase III modified single-blind, controlled, multicenter trials in which more than 3,300 infants from the United States received the vaccine using a two-dose schedule.

Much drier air is now moving into town to promote clearing and a beautiful sunny day for a change. A cold northerly wind will be a bit gusty at times, but for sure the sun will add some warmth. Be aware that the sun's rays are now as strong as they are on August 12, so if you’re going to be outdoors for any length of time consider using some sunscreen. Skies will remain clear into tonight, but temperatures should remain above freezing. Tomorrow will be another real nice day and a little warmer than today. More showers will arrive on Monday, and temperatures will likely trend a bit below normal all next week. - Tom Clark

Gordon Robinson hangs with Jack, a golden doodle, in his 2,300-square-foot man cave, which contains three flatscreen TVs, three classic cars and a wet bar, among other amenities, in Lakewood, Wash.

By STACY DOWNS

McClatchy Newspapers

HOME APPLIANCE MAKERS ARE BUILDING UP STEAM. The trusted technology found in whistling tea kettles and surging clothes irons has become a hot thing in washers, dryers, dishwashers and ovens. After all, steam is energy-efficient and can sterilize surfaces such as hospital instruments. Multipurpose steam cleaners were a popular category in Chicago at the 2011 International Home + Housewares Show. Their microfiber pads help remove grime and germs from countertops, tile and floors and freshen carpet, draperies and upholstery. The devices are even touted as a weapon for killing bedbugs. In less than a minute, they heat up ordinary tap water to at least 212 degrees — the boiling point — to create steam. “Many consumers are becoming more educated about environmentally friendly cleaning products,” says Lisa Casey Weiss, lifestyle consultant for the International Housewares Association. “And as a result, they have become interested in steam cleaners because they often eliminate the need for harsh chemicals.” So is steam the panacea for cleaning, dewrinkling and even cooking? It depends. Portable cleaners Consumer Reports added the “steam mops” category in 2010. A dozen items that often fall to the floor — including ketchup, mustard, olive oil, syrup and baby cereal — were allowed to harden on vinyl floor tiles be-

fore testers tackled them with steam mops. The verdict? Consumer Reports called the H2O Mop ($100) and Eureka Enviro Steamer 313A ($70) “good” and the others “mediocre.” The nonprofit, independent testing agency identified a recurring flaw: When there’s a large amount of soil, more gets pushed out of the way than picked up by the pad. It also cautions that steam and water could damage wood floors and might void the warranty. Steam-mop manufacturers have addressed concerns through vacuum/steam mop combos. As for potential floor damage, the mops’ moisture levels can be adjusted for different floors. “With floors that are a little more delicate, for example ... you can put it on the steam-dusting setting,” says Dann Provolo, vice president of marketing for EuroPro, maker of Shark products.

One man’s ultimate guytopia By CRAIG SAILOR McClatchy Newspapers

TACOMA, Wash. — You can call it a Man Cave, as owner Gordon Robinson does, but Garage Mahal might be a better term. Sure, it’s a basement with recliners, big-screen TVs and drinks on ice. But that’s only the beginning. Where other dude hangouts end, this one’s only beginning. Robinson, The first thing 57, built the that strikes a 2,300visitor to Rob- square-foot inson’s lair is a Guytopia for himself, but shiny blue 1941 it’s quickly Willys Probecome just Street hot rod as popular with friends parked just and neighbeyond the bar. bors. “Everybody stops by all the time. It’s nice,” wife Debbie, 55, says. Debbie has the rest of the 7,600-square foot house for her own amusements, which include a TV lounge, kitchen and craft room. It’s all situated on the shores of American Lake in Lakewood, Wash. The first thing that strikes a visitor to Robinson’s lair is a shiny blue 1941 Willys Pro-Street hot rod parked just beyond the bar. Next to it is a 1965 Pontiac GTO and a 1966 Chevrolet El Camino. All three have been restored (the GTO on a rotisserie) and gleam in mint condition. Naturally, the first question a visitor asks is: How did you get these in here? “I take them apart and then put them back together,” Robinson answers before breaking into a laugh. The real method is just around the corner: a $30,000 hydraulic car lift that descends from the otherwise normal looking two-car garage above. Robinson, the owner of Jack Roberts Appliance on South Tacoma Way is clearly big on cars. Near the elevator is a shop room filled with tools. In the center sits a detailing cart crammed with more than 50 squirt bottles, rubbing compounds and waxes. The El Camino, used in Robinson’s construction business in the 1980s, is just one of the $150,000 worth of cars and memorabilia in his man cave. The house was built in 2008 but Robinson completed the man cave in July 2010. He contracted out some of the finishing work but his construction background allowed him to install the drywall, cabinets and millwork. The construction cost, not including his labor, was $100,000. During Debbie and Gordon’s 27-year marriage and numerous houses he’s always had garages, man caves or some variation thereof, the couple say. Though the current incarnation is not the biggest he’s had, it is his crowning achievement. “He’s down there all the time with his buddies, and that’s great,” Debbie says. A 65-inch-screen TV commands one room of the basement with recliners, a massage chair and pool table taking up See GUYTOPIA, Page 4C

Edible sustenance from the garden By BARBARA MAHANY Chicago Tribune

“The Kitchen Gardener’s Handbook” By Jennifer R. Bartley (Timber Press, $22.95) What it is: “The Kitchen Gardener’s Handbook” supplies a four-season spin through the kitchen garden, chock-full of plant notes and recipes, and dreamy photos of fresh-from-the-garden bouquets. You’ll find sustainable garden plans, sketches and plant lists, so you can dig along with author Jennifer R. Bartley. In turns, Bartley considers the vegetables,

that we are richer for our connection to the patch of earth outside our kitchen door — whether it’s the food we bring to our table or the beauty we tuck in a vase. Above all, it’s a survival guide for those among us who hunger for what the garden so willingly gives. What makes it armchair-worthy: A perfect antidote for those MCT PHOTO offseason gardening blues. This ’The Kitchen Gardener’s Handis the tome to reach for when book,’ by Jennifer R. Bartley you’ve reached your limit read(Timber Press, $22.95) ing about some far-off picturefruits, greens and herbs for perfect garden, or can’t stand to every season. At heart, this is mull one more metaphysical gara book pulsing with the belief den query. This is the self-help

guide you need when the only cure around is plotting your kitchen potager. It’s a book you can’t help but tuck with scraps of paper, and turneddown page corners, as you harvest a bumper crop of fine ideas. One fine line: “Edible gardening is not like a canoe that floats by and, if missed, cannot be recaptured. There is no single perfect planting, growing, or harvesting moment. Instead, edible gardening is a continuous process; you can participate at any stage in the continuum. ... Plant a seed and watch it grow.”

Checking heating systems is standard for inspectors Q: We are selling our home and have a bid on it. But before the home inspector left, he shared some of the items of concern on his report. He said we had a small amount of carbon monoxide leaking from our heater and that it needed to be cleaned. He showed me how he tested it and explained to me that most inspectors do not even test half the things he was testing. I showed him our carbonmonoxide monitor, and it was not reading dangerous levels. Regardless, we had a heating company come to our home and completely service the heater, and the service person said all was well. The servicer said it was common for carbon monoxide to leak when the burner is heating up. My gut feeling is that we are going to have to replace or give a credit at settlement for a new heater. We obviously would never want to sell our home to someone under any unsafe conditions. However, we have maintained and upgraded most areas of the home and are now also being told how the electricity was done incorrectly or how the outlets aren’t grounded. My question: When it comes to inspections, is there a standard or code of conditions that must be tested and documented, or is it subject to the inspector? A: The American Society of Home Inspectors says heating and electrical systems are among the items covered in a standard inspection. In the inspector’s opinion, and I don’t know the areas in which he is well-versed, the furnace required cleaning because he detected carbon monoxide when it was operating. So, in response, you had the furnace serviced. You should obtain something from the servicer to show this has been done. Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of incomplete combustion caused when there isn’t enough oxygen available to create carbon dioxide, and a dirty furnace is a common cause of this. What the servicer should have done was make sure that the problem had been taken care of. Does a small amount of carbon monoxide result every time a furnace comes on? I don’t know, but I placed a spare detector within six inches of our

Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of incomplete combustion caused when there isn’t enough oxygen available to create carbon dioxide, and a dirty furnace is a common cause of this. furnace on a cold evening in late March, and it didn’t even burp when the furnace came on time and time again. The instructions even caution not to put the detector as close as I did, but still it continued to flash “0.” Electricity? If the buyers are concerned, they should have a licensed electrician inspect the work. In fact, the same goes for the furnace. Tell them to hire an HVAC company to inspect it if they are concerned with the inspector’s report. The home inspector association’s standards of conduct clearly state that if the buyer has concerns about the issues raised in the report, he or she should contact an independent expert to conduct further testing. That’s the buyer. Not the seller. If the buyer eventually wants you to lower your price, it is up to the buyer to present clear and indisputable reasons why. Q: We have 50-year-old fiberglass awnings that need to be updated. They are not falling part, but their appearance needs to be updated. A couple of years ago, we power washed them, which brought up the fiber, and, consequently, the awnings showed dirt after a time. My husband is suggesting painting them. A: I don’t think you should have power washed the awnings, considering their age. This round, you might try washing them with soapy water, rinsing with a garden hose, wiping away stubborn stains with distilled vinegar or foaming them away with baking soda (all Internet ideas), and then sealing them with a coat of car wax. I wouldn’t paint them. Because they don’t owe you anything, and it has been 50 years, perhaps it is about time for new ones. Questions? E-mail Alan J.

THE STEAM LOWDOWN

STEAM

Continued from Page 1C

Kan., wanted to replace his own top-load washer and dryer in October, he turned to steam. But steam washing machines use less power and consume less water than conventional models. A little bit of water can produce a lot of steam, which expands to take up more volume. The front loader uses 15 gallons versus the 40 gallons his top-loader did. Price chose Whirlpool models that were each $150 more than machines that don’t use steam. He likes how the steam cycle on his washer gets out tough stains. He uses the steam dryer to dewrinkle his clothes. The dry clothes look better, he says, when he de-wrinkles one item at a time. Price’s observations are in line with Consumer Reports’ test results. “We found that with washers, the steam does improve the performance somewhat,” says Emilio Gonzalez, senior program leader in the appliance division at Consumer Reports. “With dryers, it’s mixed. They’re great at alleviating odor buildup, so you can freshen up clothes. ... But they’re not always great with wrinkles.” Dishwashers Conventional dishwashers produce steam in the drying cycle when leftover water is converted into vapor. But steam dishwashers use steam in the washing phases. “One of the main reasons you’re seeing more steam dishwashers is because detergent manufacturers have eliminated phosphates,” says Stephen Wright, appliance manager at Nebraska Furniture Mart . “So (conventional) dishwashers aren’t as good at breaking up debris, especially the caked-on stuff.” Steam dishwashers don’t exclusively use steam for cleaning, but

the home — and on “Oprah,” where actress Gwyneth Paltrow said the steamer was her favorite kitchen tool. The design center demonstrates its Gaggenau steam-convection combination oven and in-counter steamer. “It’s a way to make nutritional food that tastes like it came from a restaurant,” says Portfolio owner Geri Higgins. “You don’t have to add butter or sauce to it to make it more moist or flavorful.” The steamer and the oven are self-cleaning; condensation needs to be wiped up after cooking. For an integrated countertop steamOvens and steamers er, a plumber hooks up water and Portfolio Kitchen & Home in drainage lines. Because calcium Kansas City knows that technolo- can sometimes clog water lines, gy is steaming up in the heart of many models contain water carthey can employ it on different cycles. For example, GE steam dishwashers have pre-wash cycles (steam baths) that loosen food before normal wash cycles, eliminating the need to manually rinse dishes, which wastes water. Consumer Reports is lukewarm on steam dishwashers. They found the addition of steam does make dishes cleaner, but only a little bit. A downside: they take a lot longer to get through a wash cycle, adding as much as 45 minutes. The upsides: they’re quiet and energy-efficient.

COOKING WITH STEAM Steamer Price: Steamers integrated into the counter or cooktop start at $1,000 and require plumbing. Gaggenau steamerVK411610 is $2,899. It’s good for at-home cooks who want fresh meals fast. Who’d like a steamer: At-home cooks who want fresh meals fast. How it works: The steamer is integrated into the countertop and includes a drainage pipe underneath. It differs from an electric small-appliance steamer in that it’s built in and can be used to boil water for pasta. OVEN Price: They start at $2,000 in brands such as Kenmore, KitchenAid, Miele and Viking. Thermador recently introduced a new steamcombination oven for about $3,200. The Gaggenau electric steam oven starts at $6,349. Who’d like a steam oven: Someone who wants to cook healthy food fast, and bread bakers (combination ovens use steam mist for good crust). How it works: Most steam ovens and combination ovens (in microwave and conventional sizes) come equipped with a detachable reservoir to be filled with water to begin the baking process. Trays of different foods can be cooked simultaneously without flavor transfer. OVEN CLEANING Steam-cleaning cycles are becoming more common in conventional ovens. “We’ve seen that consumers are wary of four-hour plus cleaning cycles that make their oven really, really hot and their house smell,” says Michael DiLauro, home product specialist at Consumer Reports. The steam-cleaning function is

tridges. Ovens come with detachable water reservoirs and don’t typically require plumbing. Steam-combination ovens cook fast, too. A 14-pound turkey takes 90 minutes. Some opt to reheat food with steam instead of using a microwave. Leftover pizza, for example, tastes like it’s fresh out of the oven. “You’re starting to see steam ovens as a second oven above a conventional one,” Higgins says. “Instead of a microwave.”

more for touch-up cleaning instead of baked-on cleaning. “It’s not something that consumers are paying more for,” DiLauro says. “More ovens are coming out with them.” Who’d like it: Kitchen neat-freaks. How it works: Most models work by pouring 10 ounces of distilled or filtered water into the bottom of the oven for the steam-clean function, which takes about 20 minutes. Remaining water in the bottom of the oven can be wiped away. TACKLING THE BATHROOM Steam cleaners aren’t just for floors and upholstery. Handy devices have entered the bath to help tackle tile, mirrors, counters and light fixtures. Anything but the toilet bowl. Among them is the Oreck Steam-It All-Purpose Steamwand, $169, www.oreck.com, which comes with six attachments and two machine-washable microfiber pads. Also use to clean floors and freshen upholstery. Who’d like it: Chemical-leery consumers who want to fight germs. How it works: The water in the device heats up in 30 seconds and can be used for 20 or so minutes before a refill. CARING FOR CLOTHES De-wrinkle garments right on the hanger with a hand-held system. You can use it to freshen fabrics, too, which limits the use of soaps and dry-cleaning chemicals, allowing fabrics to last longer. Just be sure your clothes are colorfast; otherwise a steamer can fade them. Among them is the Shark Press & Refresh with vertical ironing pad, $99.99, www.GoPressandRefresh.com Who’d like it: The iron-challenged and fashionistas.

How it works: Holding the steam trigger, you move the small device up and down. A vertical hanging pad allows you to press garments on the hanger. LAUNDRY Price: Steam washers and dryers start at $600 each. The GE Profile Frontload Steam Washer with Overnight Ready Cycle can wash and dry clothes in the same machine. Among these is the new LG Studio Series SteamWasher, $1,889, and SteamDryer, $1,759 Who’d like a steam washer: Parents of young athletes, allergy sufferers and those who want to get out tough stains. How it works: Steam generators with nozzles are dedicated to releasing steam or heating water in the tub. Steam can be used to pre-treat stains and during the wash cycle to more effectively dissolve detergent. Who’d like a steam dryer: Frequent event-goers or those around cigarette smoke. How it works: Steam penetrates and moistens clothes deeply, which creates a softening effect that reduces wrinkles. Steam’s high temperature sanitizes clothes, helping to eliminate odors. DISHES Price: Steam dishwashers start at $600. Among them is the GE Profile PDWT380RSS, $950. Who’d like it: Eco-minded consumers who don’t want to pre-rinse and/or those who frequently use fine china. How it works: Nozzles release steam or heat water in the tub into steam. They also have conventional functions. RESOURCES Consumer Reports: www.consumerreports.org

15-year-old girl fears she’s falling behind in the teenage dating game Dear Abby: I’m a 15-year-old girl who has never been popular with boys. The hardest part is watching my friends date while I have to stay home. One way I was able to make myself feel better was by telling myself everything would change when high school started. By the end of our first week as freshmen, my friend “Lily” had a new boyfriend and I’m still alone. Her boyfriend actually joked that I should “play for the other team” because I have no chance of getting a guy. Needless to say, my friendship with Lily is over, but her boyfriend’s comment is still sticking with me.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Abby, do I really have no chance with guys? Am I overreacting about not having a boyfriend? I feel I should have dated plenty by now. — Waiting For the First Kiss in Jersey Dear Waiting: The comment Lily’s boyfriend made was asinine and uncalled for. Please don’t measure your worth using that immature boy’s yardstick. Not being a belle of the ball in high school doesn’t mean you won’t blossom socially later. Many people do. Use this time to concentrate on

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

your studies, athletics, special interests, volunteering in your community and completing your education. Those things are more important than a boyfriend right now — and they’ll leave you with less time to brood. When you’re older, you will meet men (not boys) who value what you have to offer. Dear Abby: I have a woman friend who is always saying to me, “I wish just you and I could go do something together.” So the other day I called her and suggested we visit a local flea market and then go to a local festival. She replied that it sounded great, but she needed to talk to her husband, “Ted,” to see if he wanted to join us. Abby, she does this to me all the time. I’m tired of inviting her for a

CRYPTOQUOTE

girls’ day and having her come only if Ted is coming. Should I stop the invitations? — Ticked Off in Florida Dear Ticked Off: No, before you do that you should tell her how you feel about her sending you mixed messages. And if it happens again, THEN stop inviting her. Dear Abby: I recently took my official college graduation photo and was excited to show my mom. She said she was OK with my giving her one of the small photos because she didn’t want to put any more holes in the wall. It really upset me. I am the first person in my family to graduate from college. Mom’s comment was unacceptable. I argued

with her, cried and told her how I felt. Mom told me to get out and that I had no right to tell her what to do in her house. I’m still hurt. She apologized later, but her comment still stings. Please help me get over it. — Upset College Senior Dear Upset: Your mother may have been tactless, but it’s important that you bury the hatchet. Her pride in your accomplishments is not as important as your own pride in them. 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). Infatuation is not just a state of mind that happens between people. Attractive enterprises are likely to stir up feelings of infatuation, too. Note that unrealistic expectations go hand in hand with this kind of attachment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re like a psychic sponge now, absorbing new wisdom everywhere you go. There’s something to glean from every experience. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You would make an excellent event planner. You have a terrific sense of physical flow and a sense about how to direct people’s experiences. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll mingle in a new crowd. Do you have anything in common with them? On the surface, it wouldn’t appear so, but make the effort to go a little deeper, and you’ll learn you’re more alike than different. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s an aura of excitement around you. Your presence will be uniquely energizing. It will be as though someone pumped extra oxygen into the air around you just to make it fresher than “regular” air. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t usually think too much about how you’ll add humor, fun and spontaneity to the day — it just happens naturally for you. Make an exception this evening. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The naysayers and pessimists in your midst serve an important function. Bounce your ideas around with someone who falls into the category. This will help you solve a problem before it occurs.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Making the most of your leisure time is the top priority. You’ll be increasingly sensitive to environmental persuasions. Go where the lighting is good and the music puts you in a happy mood. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s a difference between pushing an idea and presenting it. You’ll strike just the pleasing tone that sells what you’re offering without an ounce of hassle or pressure. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The others think of you as an enthusiastic team player. You are also loyal and sincere. It is precisely these qualities that will make you a first choice as company among colleagues, friends and loved ones. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re mindful of updating your skills. That’s why you are the one who will be asked to perform technical and support functions that others can’t figure out or don’t do as well as you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re an excellent communicator and will provide conversational highlights and laughs for your friends. You’ll reflect favorably on your family and on others who are in direct association with you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 30). This year represents a magical crossing. Regardless of the age you’re coming into, you’ll feel empowered by the new era. You will shift priorities and feel greater ease around work and finance in July. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 39 and 18.
