Charged with selling $100 worth of cocaine in 1995, Cheikh Diop of Forty Fort thought he got a good deal when Luzerne County prosecutors agreed to recommend a sentence of probation in exchange for his guilty plea to the drug charge. He didn’t know it then, but more than a decade later that decision would cost him nearly three years of his freedom. Diop, a native of the Republic of Senegal, entered the plea and served four years of probation. He continued to work and raise a family in Luzerne County until March 19, 2008. That’s when agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency knocked at his door and Diop learned, for the first time, that the 13-year-old drug conviction subjected him to deportation from the United States.It would be the start of a convoluted, four-year odyssey through the federal, state and immigration court systems that continues today. Diop was taken to the York County prison, where he spent the next 2 years and 11 months in administrative detention. His “sentence” was not for the drug charge itself, but a consequence of his efforts to fight deportation to his native country. His case recently resulted in a precedent-setting ruling by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals that will require the government to provide bail hearings for immigrants subject to mandatory detention. The ruling was hailed as a victory by the American Civil Liberties Union and other See IMMIGRANTS, Page 9A

need to take advantage of the “Great American Grump Out” this Wednesday. Put your inner grouch on hold for one day and (gasp) try to be nice to your fellow humans. Who knows? You just might end up liking the “smiling” thing.

>> ASSEMBLE: OK, so you’ve seen “The Hulk.” You’ve seen “Iron Man.” And “Thor,” and “Captain America.” And you must have been thinking, “Wouldn’t it be great to have all these superheroes in one movie?” Well, Hollywood was listening, and just for you they made “The Avengers.” Throw in Hawkeye and Black Widow and you have six, count ‘em, SIX, spandexwearing crime fighters to battle the evil demigod Loki and his minions.

Microchips, scanner aid tracers of lost pets A Pennsylvania town returns lost dogs to owners and saves on housing them. The Associated Press

EASTON— One eastern Pennsylvania township hoping to reduce the cost of housing lost pets has decided to buy a hand-held scanner that can read microchips increasingly implanted in the animals. Palmer Township Supervisor K. Michael Mitchell says it cost the Northampton County

township about $4,000 last year to feed and shelter lost pets. “It’s becoming a problem with dogs, especially, that are found in the city by the police department and brought to the shelter, which is full and overflowing and becoming more and more of a problem,” Palmer said during a supervisors’ meeting last week, according to The (Easton) ExpressTimes.Police Chief Larry Palmer says it costs $100 to bring a dog to The Center for Animal Health and Welfare in

Williams Township and about $300 for pit bulls. Supervisors voted 4-0 last week, with member Ann-Marie Panella not present, to spend up to $500 on a hand-held scanner after the chief proposed the idea. Palmer said that when he was police chief in Easton, the city was paying about $43,000 annually to pay animal shelter fees and its animal control officer. Before he retired, the city bought a microchip reader, and three dogs with microchips were returned to their owners,

he said. Such microchips won’t be mandatory, but Palmer said pet owners will be encouraged to get them, and the township will promote the use of chips through its website and newsletter. Candace Keller, business manager at Wright Veterinary Medical Center in Bethlehem Township, said more than 50 pet owners have had the $62.50 microchips embedded since January. Dogs, cats and even birds can have the chips embedded, she said.

“Pets are a part of the family,” Keller said. “Any time a pet goes into a veterinary hospital, we scan them. We have had a lot of nice success stories where we could bring them back to their owners.” With more people already getting microchips implanted in their pets, the scanner will benefit the township and pet owners, Supervisor Chairman David Colver said. “It solves a lot of problems and goes a long way with goodwill from the township,” Colver said.

LOS ANGELES — The superhero saga “The Avengers” lived up to its blockbuster buzz with $178.4 million in overseas ticket sales days before it opens in U.S. theaters. Domestic audiences generally passed on a bunch of new flicks as fans seem to be in anticipation mode for Disney’s “The Avengers,” which debuts Friday in the United States after launching in 39 other countries a week earlier. The huge overseas launch will help fan the frenzy already in place for “The Avengers,” the superhero mash-up of Marvel Comics idols whose cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson. “You hope that the magnitude of this kind of opening sends a signal that this is a for-everyone film,” said Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney. “You can’t put up these kinds of numbers if it’s just for guys or just for the fans. These numbers say that it is for everyone, 8 to 80.” The Sony Screen Gems ensemble comedy “Think Like a Man” was No. 1 domestically for the secondstraight weekend with $18 million. Four movies were bunched up for the No. 2 spot in the $11 million range: Sony’s animated comedy “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” with $11.4 million; the Warner Bros. romantic drama “The Lucky One” with $11.3 million; Lionsgate’s blockbuster “The Hunger Games” with $11.25 million; and Universal’s romantic comedy “The Five-Year Engagement” with $11.2 million. Those four flicks were so close that their rankings from Sunday studio estimates could change once final numbers are released today. Along with “Pirates,” whose voice cast was led by Hugh Grant, and “Five-Year Engagement,” which stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, the other newcomers were Jason Statham’s action tale “Safe” from Lionsgate at No. 6 with $7.7 million and John Cusack’s Edgar Allan Poe mystery “The Raven” from Relativity Media at No. 7 with $7.3 million. “I think going to the movies will be the No. 1 priority next weekend but clearly was not the No. 1 priority this weekend,” said Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-office tracker

Hollywood.com. “There’s so much anticipation for ‘The Avengers’ that the newcomers kind of got lost in the shuffle.” “The Hunger Games” climbed to $372.5 million domestically, putting it less than $10 million behind last year’s “Harry Potter” finale, the topgrossing entry of that fantasy franchise. “Think Like a Man” raised its domestic total to $60.9 million, while “The Lucky One” lifted its haul to $39.9 million. Along with the United States, “The Avengers” has yet to open in other big markets that include Japan, China and Russia. Among the overseas totals for “The Avengers”: $24.7 million in Great Britain; $19.7 million in Australia; $15.9 million in Mexico; $12.9 million in South Korea; and $12.9 million in France. Directed by Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), “The Avengers” has strong word-of-mouth domestically from fans who were able to see advanced screenings. Critics also have given the film high marks, and the publicity blast from the overseas revenues could push the movie into record-debut territory. The “Harry Potter” finale now has the top opening weekend domestically with $169.2 million, followed by “The Dark Knight” with $158.4 million and “The Hunger Games” with $152.5 million.

Yacht debris, bodies found off coast

The sailboat collision was California’s second deadly accident this month involving an ocean race. By ELLIOT SPAGAT Associated Press

ENSENADA, Mexico — A 37-foot racing yacht was reduced to debris that looked it “like it had gone through a blender,” a searcher said Sunday after the boat apparently collided with a larger vessel, killing three sailors and leaving a fourth missing. The U.S. Coast Guard, the Mexican navy and civilian vessels scoured the waters off the shore of both countries for the missing sailor from the Aegean, which was taking part in a 124mile race that began Friday from Newport Beach, Calif., to Ensenada, Mexico. The sailboat, carrying a crew of four, was reported missing Saturday. It was California’s second deadly accident this month involving an ocean race. Race officials said they had few explanations for what may have happened to the Aegean other than it must have collided with ship like a freighter or tanker that did not see the smaller vessel. The Coast Guard said conditions were fine for sailing, with good visibility and moderate ocean swells of 6-to-8 feet. If the smaller boat was bobbing around in light wind, the crew might not have been able to get out of the way of a larger ship, perhaps a freighter, said Rich Roberts, a spokesman for the Newport Ocean Sailing Association, the race organizer. The race goes through shipping lanes and it’s possible for a large ship to hit a sailboat and not

SHICKSHINNY BLAZE

Pollick reported Daubert head-butted her, kicked her and threw her around. He also reportedly held a butcher knife to her throat and threatened her in the assault around 2:30 a.m. She was transported to Geisinger Wyoming Medical Center, Plains Township, for facial injuries. He was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest and possession of instruments of crime and transported to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for an arraignment.

Firefighters from several municipalities battled a two-alarm fire Sunday night involving two vacant houses on South Canal Street in Shickshinny. The fire started around 9 p.m. in the larger structure and spread to the smaller house next door. Both were flood-damaged properties. Mayor Beverly Moore said fire officials are investigating arson as the possible cause.

even know it, especially at night, Roberts said. A race tracking system indicated the Aegean disappeared about 1:30 a.m. PDT (4:30 a.m. EDT) Saturday, he added. Searchers were focusing on an area about 10 miles off the Mexican coast and about 10 miles south of U.S. waters, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Henry Dunphy. Other yachts near the Coronado Islands in Mexico — four small, mostly uninhabited islands — reported seeing debris Saturday morning. Two of the dead were William Reed Johnson Jr., 57, of Torrance, Calif., and Joseph Lester Stewart, 64, of Bradenton, Fla. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office was withholding the name of the third sailor pending notification of relatives. Calls to Johnson’s and Stewart’s homes went unanswered Sunday. The Aegean is registered to Theo Mavromatis, 49, of Redondo Beach, Calif. The race association didn’t know if he was aboard, but Gary Gilpin at Marina Sailing, which rents out the Aegean when Mavromatis isn’t using it, said the 49-year-old skipper took the yacht out earlier in the week for the competition. Gilpin said Mavromatis, an engineer, was an experienced sailor who had won the Newport to Ensenada race in the past. A woman answering a call at a number listed for Mavromatis declined to answer questions. Eric Lamb was the first to find debris of the boat — most no larger than six inches — scattered over about two square miles Saturday as he worked safety patrol on the race.

PRINGLE – They need to know things like what the medical prefix “blepharo“ signifies (eyelid). They need to be good at deciding when they’re sure enough of their expertise to “bid” high on a question, thus earning more points (think “Daily Double” on Jeopardy). And they need to raise more than $5,000 to attend the national competition where all that knowledge meets its ultimate challenge. They are the West Side Career and Technology Center’s

“Health Knowledge Bowl” team, the only local competitors to win first place in any event of the SkillsUSA state championship competition. They’ve earned the right to vie for a national title in Kansas City, Mo., in June, but first they need to earn the money to make the trip. “In order to go to the finals we have to raise about $5,500,” said Health Related Technology teacher Jeanne Kravitz. “We’re looking for corporate sponsors and planning some events.”

James Wheeler, a sophomore from Wyoming Valley West; and Samantha Edmonds, a senior from Northwest Area. “They’ve never competed as a team before,” Kravitz said. “They did very well.” Knowledge Bowl is similar to the TV game show Jeopardy, Kravitz said. The teams are given a category, get to “bid” on the questions, and if they are first and right, a high bid garners high points. “Obviously, we are really proud of our students, to come from such a small school and win a chance at the national title,” Kravitz added.

Grace period set for shots

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is extending the grace period by two weeks for students to comply with new school immunization requirements. If students don’t have the required immunizations, they may not be able to attend school. Without this extension, the grace period would have come to an end in most areas next week. The new regulations require children in all grades to receive a second dose of mumps vaccine as well as a second dose of the chicken pox vaccine. They also require students in seventh grade to have one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) and one dose of the tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap). The vaccines need to be appropriately spaced apart to be considered valid. Any student who is not yet up to date should make an appointment with their local healthcare provider, or call 877-PA HEALTH (877-724-3258) to be connected to their local state health center. The most recent copy of the student’s vaccination history must be provided at the time of the appointment. Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Exemptions are allowed by law for medical reasons verified by a healthcare professional, on religious grounds, or on the basis of a strong moral or ethical conviction similar to a religious belief. However, the student must fill out a statement for exemption and provide it to his or her school. WILKES-BARRE

Woman injured in attack

Christina Lesko of Wilkes-Barre reported to city police Saturday morning that she was struck with a metal pipe by a woman who tried to steal her purse on New Market Street. Lesko said she was parking her vehicle on the street when a black vehicle pulled in front of her, blocking her path. A woman got out of the black vehicle and asked Lesko for her money. The woman then demanded the money and smashed the passenger-side window and windshield of Lesko’s vehicle with a pipe. The woman grabbed Lesko’s purse but Lesko grabbed it back and was struck by the pipe. During the attempted robbery a man stood outside the black vehicle. The attacker fled south on South Empire Street, followed by the man who later got into the black vehicle and drove away. Lesko described her attacker as a white woman, approximately 5 feet, 3 inches weighing between 115 and 125 pounds and wearing dark clothing.

Area man part of movie piracy scheme, feds say By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

A Lackawanna County man indicted last week in Virginia was a member of a group aiming “to become the leading source of pirated movies on the Internet,” according to a federal attorney. An indictment unsealed April 23 in U.S. District Court, Norfolk, charged Willie O. Lambert of Springbrook Township and three other men with conspiracy and copyright infringement.

Lambert, 57, could not be reached for comment. He was arrested last Monday and released without bail on conditions including reporting for an arraignment in Norfolk on May 9 along with Jeramiah Perkins, 39, of Portsmouth, Va., Gregory Cherwonik, 53, of Canandaigua, N.Y., and Sean Lovelady, 27, of Pomona, Calif.. Federal authorities alleged the four were members of the IMAGiNE Group. In announcing the indictment, As-

sistant U.S. Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer said the men were charged with “serious intellectual property crimes. Through IMAGiNE, they allegedly sought to become the leading source of pirated movies on the Internet.” Lambert faces a maximum of 25 years in prison on the five charges he faces.

The Luzerne County controller’s power to accept or reject payment requests could be semirestored under an administrative code proposed by county Manager Robert Lawton, but the addition may not survive county council revision. Lawton’s proposed code, which he stressed is only a first draft, says the controller Lawton will have discretion to review bills and supporting documentation. The controller must notify the county manager within 10 days if he is not approving a bill, along with the reasons, the proposed code says. If the county manager determines a controller-rejected payment should be made, the manager must notify the controller and county council in writing within five days, the proposed code says. Home rule charter drafters did not assign this type of involvement in bill approval to the controller because they wanted the office to focus more on auditing.

DA wants juvenile victims funding restored

such as camcorders and infrared receivers to record the audio and video components of first-run movies in theaters and uploaded them to a computer. They used computer software to further edit and combine the individual pieces into movie files for distribution. Agents with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security seized six laptop computers, computer hard drives, computers, cellular phones and documents during a Sept. 8, 2011 search of Lambert’s house at 33 Side Hill Acres Drive. According to the indictment, Lambert’s role was to record the movies in theaters. In July 19, 2010, posting on the group’s message board, Lambert, who used the online aliases of “HoaD” and “hellofaday,” said “I have to test my new recorder and make sure it work (sic) and how to work it.” In a response to a post by Perkins, Lambert said, “Plus have to find a new place to go going to the same place all the time is looking for trouble.” Where he allegedly recorded the movies was not disclosed in the indictment. Information provided by the Motion Picture Association of America to Homeland Security, which conducted the investigation, credited the IMAGiNE Group with releasing 547 copyrighted motion pictures between September 2009 and January 2011. The indictment covers a longer period until September 2011 and alleged the group reproduced and distributed over the Internet tens of thousands of copies of pirated movies. Among them were: “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” “Cars 2,” “Bridesmaids,” and “Iron Man 2.” The group rented a computer server for users of BitTorrent file-sharing technology to communicate with each other. The users on the file-sharing network can download small pieces of a large music or movie file and reassemble them. The indictment alleged Lambert reproduced a copy of “The Green Hornet” in January 2011 and between that date and Feb. 25, 2011 “seeded” it or made it available for download by BitTorrent file-sharing technology. The group also rented servers in France, Canada and the United States to host websites and provide workspace for them to prepare the files for distribution as movies among themselves and for sale to others, according to the indictment. The group established an online PayPal account to accept donations to pay expenses, including rent for the servers and to receive payments for distribution of the pirated movies, the indictment said. Lambert made several transfers to the account, including one on Oct. 26, 2010 with the notation, “Server Funds,” according to the indictment.

rently employs two victim witness coordinators who specifically work with victims in the juvenile court system. Without the funding, Salavantis said, those two positions would be eliminated and no one would be available to help victims. “I’m supposed to be sitting down with the county manager (Robert Lawton) to discuss the funding. The state mandated we have to fund these positions. Now, they have placed the burden on the county. (The county) has to fund the positions.” Salavantis said she doesn’t want to see her office have to

cut any more positions and hopes she can save them by urging legislators to fight to have them state-funded again. “I understand that tough times mean tough decisions, but the elimination of funding for victims of juvenile offenders is simply a bad decision that ignores the rights crime victims are entitled to,” Salavantis said. “As the legislature goes through the budget process, my colleagues and I urge them to recognize mandatory victims’ rights as a priority and restore this funding.” Victims of Juvenile Offenders funding covers employ-

Quotes for purchases between $2,500 and $25,000 also are required by the charter, though council has the option to up this amount by ordinance. Before home rule, quotes were required for purchases between $3,000 and $7,500. A “right-to-audit” clause must be in all contracts, the charter says, to give the county controller and manager access to vendor records and employees associated with the product or service. The charter also says insurance must be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. Under the old system, insurance was purchased through public proposals. Proposals differ from bids because experience and qualifications may be considered in addition to price. Lawton’s proposed policy says all

bills had to go through the controller before payment was issued. The notification to council contained in the proposed code also could conflict with the charter. The charter says the manager approves purchases and only must seek council approval when a contract would cost the county $25,000 in any future year or $75,000 in two or more future years, impacting future budgets. Council clearance isn’t required for other purchases because it’s the manager’s responsibility to follow purchasing procedures and live within the council-approved budget, charter drafters said. Lawton said he was showing support for additional scrutiny of all proposed payments in his proposed code but will work with council to develop the final version. Council Chairman Jim Bobeck said Lawton already made it clear he will be suggesting revisions, and the manager and council will

bids should be submitted to the county controller’s office and publicly opened in the presence of the controller or his or her designee. County Controller Walter Griffith had expressed concerns that his office would stop being involved in bid openings under home rule. The proposed code increases the controller’s involvement, saying proposals for professional services also will be submitted to the controller’s office. In the past, proposals went to the purchasing office, which coordinated the opening and processing with departments seeking the services. The controller must publicly open proposals and inspect them for appropriate documents without publicly announcing the submitted dollar amounts, the proposed code says. Some other details from Lawton’s proposed purchasing code: • Insurance must be bid out at least every three years, with the frequency determined by the man-

ensure the code complies with the charter. “I’m open to comments from all sources,” Lawton said. The administrative code, which provides a blueprint for county operations, was introduced by Lawton Tuesday and must be adopted by council within 60 days. Lawton’s proposal also addresses at least two other potentially contentious issues – the filling of vacant court jobs and the power to hire and fire the election bureau director. Past county officials have complained when county judges replaced departed employees without advance notice to the administration. Judges have maintained the courts are an independent branch. Lawton would allow the judici-

ment costs for victim witness coordinators. The programs have helped more than 60,000 victims and witnesses of juvenile offenders in Pennsylvania annually. Salavantis made her sentiments known last week – National Crime Victims Rights Week, which ended Saturday. “It’s important for us to understand and respect the fact that the people who suffer the most from crime are its victims,” Salavantis said. “When we recognize and act on the rights of victims, we promote justice not only for victims and their families, but for the entire community.”

ager. • The purchasing director must obtain at least three prices when quotations are required. Vendors who refuse to provide quotes can’t be counted toward the three unless the purchasing director made a good faith effort to contact all known suppliers of the goods and services within the county. • When seeking proposals for professional services – including legal, architecture, accounting, engineering and appraisal work -the purchasing director will publish a list of qualifications required for any people or companies interested in submitting cost estimates. This list of qualifications can’t be drafted to favor any particular company or individual. • Vendors must maintain documentation supporting their bills for seven years after they’ve received final payment due to the “right-to-audit” clause. • Requests for purchases in any county department must go through the purchasing director. The county purchasing policy replaced by home rule had been implemented in 2004 to impose standards that were tougher than the state’s. State law requires bidding for non-professional services over $10,000 and does not require bids or proposals for professional services. ary to temporarily fill a vacant position within 90 days at the same or less pay. Notice of the temporary appointment, compensation and job description must be forwarded to the county manager within 30 days of the temporary hiring. The county manager would then have 30 days to review, approve and/or adjust the compensation and inform the judiciary of its action. The court’s compensation will stand if no action is taken by the manager. The county’s appointed election board recently questioned Lawton’s power to terminate election bureau director Leonard Piazza and select his replacement. Board members believe those duties fall under their jurisdiction. The proposed code says the election director is appointed by the county manager to oversee the election office. The election board may appoint a clerk to prepare board agendas and ensure board policies are implemented, and the board may select the county election bureau director as the clerk, the proposal says.

Energy efficiency was key. “We have big heating and light bills here,” Bart said, “so I told them that anything they can do to reduce that would be a huge help.” The group installed energy efficient light bulbs in the kitty cottage and energy efficient air conditioners. A hot water heater was also replaced in the tack room, an area where small dogs are kept. Sunday’s get-together served as not only an unveiling of the new signs and facility fix-ups, but a picnic for the many volunteers that help at the refuge. “I like that they wanted to do this for the volunteers,” Bart said. “They’re all such big helps, they deserve it.” Rybicki said everything would not have been possible if not for the generosi“All of us in ty of the community. the group “We raised about are animal but lovers.

Tot released from hospital

WASHINGTON — A top White House aide on Sunday said President Barack Obama wants to strike an “appropriate balance” between advancing human rights and maintaining U.S. relations with China, the first public comments by the administration on its potential involvement in harboring a Chinese activist on the eve of diplomatic talks between the two world powers. John Brennan, Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, declined to provide details on the incident or say whether the activist, Chen Guangcheng, might be hiding in the U.S. embassy in Beijing as reported.

Chen, who has exposed forced abortions and sterilizations in villages as a result of China’s one-child policy, escaped house arrest a week ago in Shandong province in eastern China. Chinesebased activists say he was driven away by supporters and then handed over to others who brought him to Beijing. “I think in all instances the president tries to balance our commitment to human rights, making sure that the people throughout the world have the ability to express themselves freely and openly, but also that we can continue to carry out our relationships with key countries overseas,” Brennan told “Fox News Sunday.” The U.S. relationship with China is “very important,” he added, “so we’re going to make sure that we do this in the appropriate way and the appropriate balance is struck.” Chen’s escape comes at a politically sensitive time for the U.S. This week,

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner head to Beijing for longplanned strategic and economic talks. Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell began a hurried mission to Beijing on Sunday to smooth the way for annual talks involving Clinton and Geithner. The U.S. has been looking to China for help on trying to curb suspected nuclear ambitions of North Korea and Iran, and to push Syria toward a ceasefire with anti-government protestors. Bilateral disputes over trade, China’s currency and U.S. relations with Taiwan also were expected to surface during the talks. While the White House has remained mostly mum on the incident — and how much it might factor into next week’s discussions — Brennan suggested that the diplomatic dance with China isn’t new. “I think it would be fair to say the

president has faced similar situations in the past in terms of this balancing requirement and so I’m confident that the president and others within the U.S. government will be able to find the right way forward,” Brennan said. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney expressed his concern Sunday for the safety of Chen and his family, urging U.S. government officials to offer the dissident and his family protection. “My hope is that U.S. officials will take every measure to ensure that Chen and his family members are protected from further persecution,” Romney said early Sunday in a statement. “Our country must play a strong role in urging reform in China and supporting those fighting for the freedoms we enjoy.” While Chen escaped a week ago from Dongshigu village and made it 370 miles northwest to Beijing, his wife and 6-year-old daughter were left behind.

Collapse of tent raising concerns

olice say a toddler who fell from a three-story window in north PhilaP delphia has been released from a hospi-

tal. Police said the 1-year-old fell from the alleyway window of a home in the Logan section of the city at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Authorities told WCAU-TV that the child was pushing through a screen window and fell. Police told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the toddler landed on a trash pile, which apparently prevented a more serious injury. The child was taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children but was released from the hospital Saturday night.

Fatal accident in St. Louis may lead to closer scrutiny of temporary structures.

QUETTA, PAKISTAN

Body of worker is found

The body of a British Red Cross worker held captive in Pakistan since January was found in an orchard Sunday, his throat slit and a note attached to his body saying he was killed because no ransom was paid, police said. Khalil Rasjed Dale, 60, was managing a health program in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan when armed men seized him from a street close to his office. The identities of his captors are unknown, but the region is home to separatist and Islamist militants who have kidnapped for ransom before. The director-general of the International Committee of the Red Cross condemned the “barbaric act.” “All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil’s family and friends,” said Yves Daccord. MAIDUGURI, NIGERIA

21 killed in two assaults

Gunmen attacked worship services at a university campus and a church Sunday in northern Nigeria, killing at least 21 people in coordinated assaults that saw panicked Christians gunned down as they tried to flee, witnesses and officials said. The deadlier attack targeted an old section of Bayero University’s campus in the city of Kano where churches hold Sunday services, with gunmen killing at least 16 people and wounding at least 22 others, according to the Nigerian Red Cross. A later attack in the northeast city of Maiduguri saw gunmen open fire at a Church of Christ in Nigeria chapel, killing five people, including a pastor preparing for Communion, witnesses said. No group immediately claimed responsibility, but the attacks bore similarities to others carried by a radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram. JERUSALEM

Ex-PM against Iran strike

A former Israeli prime minister added his voice Sunday to a growing chorus of Israeli officials against a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Ehud Olmert spoke to Israel’s Channel 10 TV from New York. “There is no reason at this time not to talk about a military effort,” he said, “but definitely not to initiate an Israeli military strike.” Israel and the West suspect Iran is aiming to obtain nuclear weapons. Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Olmert was Israel’s prime minister from 2006-2009. He was in office when a suspected nuclear site in Syria was attacked in 2007. It was assumed that Israel carried out the airstrike, but Israel never acknowledged that. Olmert’s remarks came after Israel’s former internal security chief, Yuval Diskin, said the government is misleading the public on the level of effectiveness of a military strike.

Building to replace towers destroyed in Sept. 11 attacks will become city’s tallest skyscraper today. By DAVID B. CARUSO Associated Press

NEW YORK — One World Trade Center, the giant monolith being built to replace the twin towers destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, will lay claim to the title of New York City’s tallest skyscraper today. Workers will workers erect steel columns that will make its unfinished skeleton a little over 1,250 feet high, just enough to peak over the roof of the observation deck on the Empire State Building. The milestone is a preliminary one. Workers are still adding floors to the socalled “Freedom Tower” and it isn’t expected to reach its full height for at least another year, at which point it is likely to be declared the tallest building in the U.S., and third tallest in the world. Those bragging rights, though, will carry an asterisk. Crowning the world’s tallest buildings is a little like picking the heavyweight

champion in boxing. There is often disagreement about who deserves the belt. In this case, the issue involves the 408foot-tall needle that will sit on the tower’s roof. Count it, and the World Trade Center is back on top. Otherwise, it will have to set-

tle for No. 2, after the Willis Tower in Chicago. “Height is complicated,” said Nathaniel Hollister, a spokesman for The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats, a Chicago-based organization considered an authority on such records. Experts and architects have long disagreed about where to stop measuring super-tall buildings outfitted with masts, spires and antennas that extend far above the roof. Consider the case of the Empire State Building: Measured from the sidewalk to the tip of its needle-like antenna, the granddaddy of all super-tall skyscrapers actually stands1,454 feet high, well above the mark being surpassed by One World Trade Center on Monday. Purists, though, say antennas shouldn’t count when determining building height. An antenna, they say, is more like furniture than a piece of architecture. Like a chair sitting on a rooftop, an antenna can be attached or removed. The Empire State Building didn’t even get its distinctive antenna until 1952. The record books, as the argument goes, shouldn’t change every time someone installs a new satellite dish.

Van plunges off road in NYC, killing seven By VERENA DOBNIK Associated Press

NEW YORK — An out-of-control SUV barreled across several lanes of traffic on a highway overpass Sunday, then plunged more than 50 feet off the side of the road and landed in a ravine on the grounds of the Bronx Zoo, killing all seven people aboard, including three children, authorities said. The 2004 Honda Pilot apparently flipped over a 4-foot-high iron fence before landing on zoo property. The cause of the crash was unclear, and police haven’t yet said how fast the SUV was traveling. A city official said the guardrail’s height would be one of the safety issues investigated. Police identified the dead as Jacob Nunez, 85, and Ana Julia Martinez, 81, both from the Dominican Republic, and their

daughters, Maria Gonzalez, 45, and Maria Nunez, 39, and three grandchildren. Police say Gonzalez was driving. The children were identified as Jocelyn Gonzalez, 10, the daughter of the driver, Niely Rosario, 7, and Marly Rosario, 3, both daughters of Nunez. The SUV was headed south on the Bronx River Parkway when it bounced off the median, crossed three southbound lanes and hit the curb, causing the vehicle to become airborne, continue over the guardrail and plunge 59 feet, police said. The SUV landed on zoo property that’s closed to the public and far from any animal exhibits, zoo spokeswoman Mary Dixon said. The vehicle lay mangled hours later, its right doors ripped off. It’s not clear what caused the SUV to go out of control around 12:30 p.m. The southbound side of the highway was

closed briefly Sunday afternoon while police investigated, but later reopened. The medical examiner’s office said it expected to release the victims’ causes of death today.

ST. LOUIS — A fatal tent collapse near a downtown St. Louis bar during a severe thunderstorm Saturday could lead to closer scrutiny of the temporary structures, a spokesman for St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said Sunday. Also Sunday, St. Louis police spokeswoman Schron Jackson identified the victim as 58-yearold Alfred Goodman of Waterloo, Ill. Jackson didn’t provide a cause of death. City operations director Sam Dotson said the medical examiner plans do an autopsy today. Saturday’s fast-moving storm ripped a large beer tent at Kilroy’s Sports Bar from its moorings and sent it and debris hurtling through the air about 80 minutes after the end of a St. Louis Cardinals game. Seventeen of the roughly 200 people in the tent were taken to hospitals and up to 100 others were treated at the scene, which was near Busch Stadium. Questions about the Dotson said tent’s safety Sunday that a — especially wind gust of in dangerous over 70 mph weather — St. destroyed the linger.

Building Commissioner Frank Oswald said Kilroy’s was granted a tent permit on April 11 and it passed inspection a couple of days later. He said the city of St. Louis requires tents to be able to withstand winds up to 90 mph. Dotson said Sunday that a wind gust of over 70 mph destroyed the tent, shattering the aluminum poles and blowing the structure onto nearby railroad tracks. “This tent was inspected, but we need to make sure there weren’t modifications to it,” he said, noting that the collapse was likely to spark discussion among city leaders about the safety of the tents and whether more regulations are needed to make sure they’re safe. Oswald declined to speculate about whether the bar could face sanctions. Both Oswald and Deputy Fire Chief John Altmann cautioned that patrons need to understand that a tent is not a safe place to be in bad weather.

Apple uses legal tricks to dodge taxes, paper says Technology companies find it easier to move profits to tax-friendly areas.

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A published report says Apple Inc. uses subsidiaries in Ireland, the Netherlands and other low-tax nations as part of a strategy that enables the technology giant to cut its global tax bill by billions of dollars every year. The New York Times on Sun-

day outlined legal methods used by Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple to avoid paying billions of dollars in federal and state taxes. One approach highlighted in the report: Even though the company is based in California, Apple has set up a small office in Reno, Nev. to collect and invest its profits. The corporate tax rate in Nevada is zero. In California, it’s 8.84 percent. While many major corporations try to reduce their tax bills, technology companies like Ap-

ple, Google Inc., Microsoft Corp. and others have more options to do so. That’s because some of their revenue comes from digital products or royalties on patents, which makes it easier for them to move profits to tax-friendly states or countries, the Times said. The 71 technology companies in the S&P 500, including Apple, Google, Yahoo Inc. and Dell Inc., reported paying global cash taxes over the past two years at a rate

that’s, on average, one-third less than other S&P 500 companies, the Times said. Apple has legally allocated about 70 percent of its profits overseas, where tax rates are often much lower than in the U.S., according to company filings. The Times cites a study by for-

mer Treasury Department economist Martin A. Sullivan that estimates Apple’s federal tax bill would have been $2.4 billion higher last year without such tactics. The newspaper says Apple paid $3.3 billion in cash taxes globally on $34.2 billion in profits

last year. That’s a tax rate of 9.8 percent. In a statement, Apple told the Times that it has complied with all laws and accounting rules, and says that its U.S. operations generated nearly $5 billion in federal and state income taxes in the first half of fiscal 2012.

Student loan increase is hot election topic Lawmakers of both parties say they want to protect college students. A N A LY S I S By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON — In the political campaigns still taking shape, President Barack Obama, Republican challenger Mitt Romney and lawmakers of both parties say they want to protect college students from a sharp increase in interest rates on federally subsidized loans. Agree, they might, and act they surely will. But first, they settled into a political brawl. What might have looked like a relatively simple matter mushroomed into a politically charged veto showdown. “This is beneath us. This is beneath the dignity of this House and the dignity of the public trust that we enjoy,” protested House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Evidently not. “It shouldn’t be a Republican or a Democratic issue. This is an American issue,” Obama said last week as he broached the topic of legislation in a move to gain support from students in the fall. He urged his listeners to urge their lawmakers to block an increase in interest rates on federally subsidized loans issued beginning July 1. There was partisan pop behind Obama’s message, though. In campaign-style appearances on college campuses, he quoted one unnamed Republican lawmaker as saying she had “very little tolerance for people who tell me they graduate with debt because there’s no reason for that.” Another GOP lawmaker likened student loans to “stage three cancer of socialism,” he said. Both Republicans quickly said they had been quoted out of context. Within a day, Romney told reporters he agreed on the need to prevent the rate increase, while conceding nothing to Obama in the search for political advantage. “I support extending the temporary relief on interest rates for students,” he said, and cited “extraordinarily poor conditions in the job market” in a

jab at the president’s handling of the economy. Congressional Democrats announced they would write legislation to prevent a doubling of the current 3.4 percent interest rate, and cover the $6 billion cost by requiring more wealthy individuals to pay Social Security and Medicare payroll tax. It was a not-so-subtle reprise of a perennial allegation that Republicans want to cut programs benefiting those who aren’t rich to protect tax cuts for those who are. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said “The only reason Democrats have proposed this particular solution to the problem is to get Republicans to oppose it, to make us cast a vote they think will make us look bad to the voters.” He then accused Democrats of wanting to pay for the legislation “by raiding Social Security and Medicare, and by making it even harder for small businesses to hire.” Democrats noted that the Republican-written budget included no provisions to block the increase in the interest rate. It was evidence, they added, that if the GOP had its way, the cost of borrowing would double soon. Boehner shot back that the Republican-controlled House would vote quickly to prevent the interest rate from rising. Then he, too, put his thumb on the political scales. The Republican bill would cover the $6 billion cost by slicing into a fund to cover preventive health care costs. That expanded the struggle to include one of the Republicans’ own campaign planks — the promise to repeal what they deride as “Obamacare,” and failing that, to dismantle it piece by piece. Democrats said the health care fund Republicans had targeted was evidence of a “war on women.” Addressing Democrats, Boehner responded “you may have already forgotten that several months ago you voted to cut $4 billion out of this fund to pay for the payroll tax cut.” By then, the White House weighed in with a veto threat, which House Republicans promptly ignored in passing its version of the measure on a near party-line vote of 215-195.

Dinner serves up humor Obama has fun at White House event ing me from Cartagena,” he said, referring to their recent trip to the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, where Clinton was photographed drinking a beer and dancing. This year, Obama is the incumbent, but the dinner was far from a campaign-free zone. The president pointed out his similarities with the presumed Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. “We both think of our wives as our better halves, and the American people agree to an insulting extent,” the president said. “We both have degrees from Harvard. I have one, he has two. What a snob.” The crack drew a thumbs up from former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who was in the audience. Santorum dropped out of the presidential primary campaign earlier this month. He had called Obama a snob for encouraging young Americans to attend college. But Obama touched on serious themes as well, remembering The New York Times’ Anthony Shadid and Marie Colvin of the Sunday Times of London, who died while covering the uprising in Syria. “Never forget that our country depends on you to help protect our freedom, our democracy and our way of life,” Obama said. Then he returned to the lighter side: “I have to get the Secret Service home in time for their new curfew.” Kimmel, the night’s featured entertainer, asked Obama: “You remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious.” “There’s a term for guys like President Obama,” Kimmel said with a pause. “Probably not two terms.” Proceeds from the dinner go

toward scholarships for aspiring journalists and awards for distinction in the profession. The association was formed in 1914 as a liaison between the press and the president. Every president since Calvin Coolidge has attended the dinner. Several journalists were also honored at the dinner: • Matt Apuzzo, Adam Goldman, Eileen Sullivan and Chris Hawley of The Associated Press, for winning the Edgar A. Poe Award for their stories about the New York City Police Department’s widespread surveillance of Muslims after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. It’s the fourth major prize for the series, which has also won the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting, the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting and a George Polk Award. • ABC’s Jake Tapper and Politico’s Glenn Thrush, Carrie Budoff Brown, Manu Raju and John Bresnahan, for winning the Merriman Smith Award for excellence in presidential coverage under pressure. Tapper won in the broadcast category for breaking the news that rating agency Standard & Poor’s was on the verge of downgrading the federal government’s triple-A credit rating because of concerns over political gridlock in Washington. In the print category, Thrush, Budoff Brown, Raju and Bresnahan of Politico won for their report on the deal between Obama and congressional Republicans to raise the U.S. debt ceiling. • Scott Wilson, of The Washington Post, for winning the Aldo Beckman award. Wilson was recognized for his “deeply reported and nuanced stories, his evocative writing and his clear presentation of complex issues, particularly on the foreign policy front.”

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama scattered the barbs during the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner as he poked fun at White House races past and present, the Secret Service and Donald Trump. Even the entrance to his speech Saturday night was part of his schtick. The president walked off stage just before he took the podium with an alleged “hot mic,” making fun of getting caught last month on an open microphone with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. “What am I doing here,” he asks off stage. “I’m opening for Jimmy Kimmel and telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian.” Once on stage, the president revisited last year’s dinner, which took place as Navy SEALS were dispatched to capture and kill Osama bin Laden. “Last year at this time, this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals,” Obama said. Then a picture of real estate mogul Donald Trump appeared on the room’s television monitors. The president last year delivered a scathing roast of Trump, who flirted with running for the Republican nomination and claimed he had solved the “mystery” of Obama’s birth certificate. Obama also took a shot at the Republican congressional leadership, whom he thanked “for taking time from their exhausting schedule of not passing any laws” to attend the dinner. Four years ago, Obama recalled, he was locked in a tough primary fight with Hillary Rodham Clinton, now his secretary of state. “She can’t stop drunk text-

1 year since Osama slaying marked A weaker al-Qaida still plots payback for U.S. raid that took life of bin Laden.

By KIMBERLY DOZIER AP Intelligence Writer

WASHINGTON — A year after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida is hobbled and hunted, too busy surviving for the moment to carry out another Sept. 11-style attack on U.S. soil. But the terrorist network dreams still of payback, and U.S. counterterrorist officials warn that, in time, its offshoots may deliver. A decade of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that has cost the U.S. about $1.28 trillion and 6,300 U.S. troops lives has forced alQaida’s affiliates to regroup, from Yemen to Iraq. Bin Laden’s No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, is thought to be hiding, out of U.S. reach, in Pakistan’s mountains, just as bin Laden was for so many years. “It’s wishful thinking to say alQaida is on the brink of defeat,” says Seth Jones, a Rand analyst and adviser to U.S. special operations forces. “They have increased global presence, the number of attacks by affiliates

has risen, and in some places like Yemen, they’ve expanded control of territory.” It’s a complicated, somewhat murky picture for Americans to grasp. U.S. officials say bin Laden’s old team is all but dismantled. But they say new branches are hitting Western targets and U.S. allies overseas, and still aspire to match their parent organization’s milestone of Sept. 11, 2001. The deadliest is in Yemen. “They are continuing to try to again, carry out an attack against U.S. persons inside of Yemen, as well as against the homeland,” White House counterterrorism advisor John Brennan said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “We’re working very closely with our Yemeni partners to track down all these leads,” he said. Brennan says there’s no sign of an active revenge plot against U.S. targets, but U.S. citizens in Pakistan and beyond are being warned to be vigilant ahead of the May 2 anniversary of the night raid. U.S. helicopters swooped down on bin Laden’s compound in the Pakistani army town of Abbottabad, killing him, one of his sons, two couriers and their wives. The last view for Americans of

the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks was that of a wizened old man sitting in front of an old television, wrapped in a blanket. The world may never see photographic proof of his death. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg in Washington ruled last week that the Obama administration, under the Freedom of Information Act, would not have to turn over images of bin Laden during or after the raid. “Verbal descriptions of the death and burial of Osama Bin Laden will have to suffice,” Boasberg wrote in his ruling on the lawsuit by the public interest group Judicial Watch. Bin Laden’s killing and al-Qaida’s stumbling efforts to regroup are now the national security centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. The White House frequently cites the president’s decision to approve the raid, with only a 5050 chance that bin Laden was even at the compound. Obama could have gone down in history as the man who put the Navy SEALs and the relationship with Pakistan in jeopardy, while failing to catch the al-Qaida leader. “Al-Qaida was and is our No. 1 enemy,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said last week.

“So it’s a part of his foreign policy record, obviously, but it’s also part of a very serious endeavor to keep our country safe.” How safe remains in question. U.S. officials say al-Qaida is less able to carry out a complex attack like Sept. 11 and they rule out al-Qaida’s ability to attack with weapons of mass destruction in the coming year. These officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they say publicly identifying themselves could make them a target of the terrorist group. U.S. counterterrorist forces have killed roughly half of al-Qaida’s top 20 leaders since the raid. That includes U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone in Yemen last September, less than six months after bin Laden’s death. Only a few of the original alQaida team remain, and most of the new names on the U.S. target lists are relative unknowns, officials say. “The last terror attack was seven years ago in London and they haven’t had any major attacks in the U.S.” says Peter Bergen, an alQaida expert who once met bin Laden. “They are recruiting nohopers and dead-enders.” Yet Zawahri is still out there.

Though constantly hunted, he has managed to release 13 audio and video messages to followers since bin Laden’s death, a near record-rate of release according to the IntelCenter, a private intelligence firm. He has urged followers to seize on the unrest left by the Arab Spring to build organizations and influence in Egypt, Libya and elsewhere, and back rebels in Syria — a call that U.S. intelligence officials say is being

heeded. U.S. attempts to deliver a “knockout punch” to Zawahri and his followers in Pakistan have been hamstrung by a breakdown in relations with Pakistan’s government over the bin Laden raid. Pakistani officials saw the raid as a violation of their sovereignty, made worse by a U.S. friendly fire attack that killed almost two dozen Pakistani troops on the border with Afghanistan last fall.

with Diop, ruling that the government could not indefinitely detain him without providing him an opportunity to review that decision. “At a certain point, continued detention becomes unreasonable and unconstitutional . . . unless the government has justified its actions at a hearing inquiring into whether continued detention is consistent with the law’s purposes of preventing flight and dangers to the community,” the court said. The decision will impact other detainees held within the Third Circuit’s jurisdiction, which includes Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

subjected to severe beatings by government officials who believed him to be part of a separatist group. Under law, an immigrant convicted of a crime can only seek asylum if they can prove they will be subject to torture by their government if they are returned to their native country, Burch said. Non criminals need to prove they will be subject to persecution, a much lower standard than torture, she said. While he won his battle to obtain bail, Diop’s chance at succeeding in stopping his removal from the country is far less certain. Even if he succeeds in negating the 1995 conviction, he still faces deportation based on a 2005 conviction for recklessly endangering another person for knocking a police officer over with his car as he fled from a traffic stop. Court records show Diop has other run-ins with the law over the past 17 years as well, including two convictions for drunken driving in 1998 and 2003. He’s currently awaiting trial in Luzerne County court on a simple assault charge for allegedly punching his teenage daughter in the face in May 2011. Burch said she understands Diop’s case might not draw much sympathy from the public. He has had problems, she said, but said that should not preclude him from seeking asylum. “I don’t want to make excuses for anyone’s criminal record . . . but don’t think that means he should be deported to a place where he will be persecuted, tortured or killed,” she said.

Deportation fight goes on Diop is continuing to fight deportation. His efforts now focus on overturning the 1995 drug conviction. He recently filed a federal lawsuit against Luzerne County judicial officials that seeks to void the conviction based on claims his right to due process was violated because he was never advised that the guilty plea would lead to his deportation. Negating the 1995 conviction is key to Diop’s attempt to avoid deportation because a drug conviction is among the crimes that, by itself, mandates an immigrant’s removal from the country, Burch said. The conviction also makes is more difficult to seek to stay in the country based on a political asylum claim. Diop entered the United States illegally at age 25 after he fled Senegal, where he claims he was

WORLD OPINION

France’s election yields no ‘presidential’ hopeful

O

BSERVERS HAVE been quick to point out the unprecedented nature of Nicolas Sarkozy’s defeat in the first round of the French presidential elections. No incumbent has failed to lead the field at this stage since direct elections were inaugurated in 1965. But whether the symbolism of his defeat has humbled the president, simple voting arithmetic suggests that he is far from down and out. Indeed, given the way the votes fell, with Sarkozy trailing the winner, François Hollande, more narrowly than expected, and the Front National outpolling the far left by a wide margin, it is in some ways easier to construct a majority for the right in the second round than vice versa.

Sarkozy already has indicated what his pitch will be in the runoff, hinting at the “chaos” that would ensue were Hollande to assume the presidency because of what the president sees as the challenger’s aversion to austerity. The truth is that neither candidate has conjured a compelling vision. The problem for Sarkozy is that the lack of a clear policy contrast turns the runoff into a personality contest that becomes harder for him to win. While Hollande does not inspire, he does not seem to enervate so many of his fellow countrymen as the president does. Whatever the outcome, the narrowing of horizons does not bode well for France.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “You know nothing’s changed in Washington if heads don’t roll.” Sen. Chuck Grassley The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee says the nation needs to know whether reports of sexual misbehavior by agents traveling in advance of the president reflect part of the culture of the Secret Service, putting security at risk.

Summit without substance

I

T IS A sad commentary on the Sixth Summit of the Americas, the triennial gathering of 34 heads of state from North, South and Central America, when the outcomes are overshadowed by the misbehavior of President Barack Obama’s advance team and security detail. Then again, even that commentary might be preferable to focusing on the deep disagreements that make plain the distance between Washington and most of its Latin American interlocutors. Two issues dominated the meeting. The first was the ongoing exclusion of Cuba. Most Latin governments prefer to have Cuba in attendance. The second issue is drug pol-

icy. The “war on drugs” that has been pushed by the United States for more than four decades -- despite its minimal impact on prices or drug use -- has resulted in huge sums of money for drug dealers, while contributing to corruption throughout the hemisphere. By just about every indicator, the war is being lost and demands reconsideration. Unfortunately, Obama, like most other U.S. political leaders, is unwilling to consider possible alternatives. Inflexibility in the face of repeated failure and the continued demand that other leaders adhere to the failed policy only undermined the credibility of the Summit of the Americas once again.

Keep Khadr at ‘Gitmo’

I

F AMERICAN soldiers had not saved Omar Khadr’s life, even after he killed one of their own, there’d be no bleeding hearts and drama queens urging the government of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to immediately accept his application for transfer to Canada from a U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay. If Afghan soldiers had ruled the day following that gun battle with al-Qaida, the seriously wounded Khadr would have now been dead 10 years, and his existence would have been all but forgotten. Instead, the then-15-year-old Canadian-born jihadist, now

Editorial Board

25, wants to come “home” as part of a plea bargain in the United States that saw him get eight more years imprisonment after finally pleading guilty to various charges. Just because Khadr was born in our country, however, does not mean we have to willingly accept his return. There’s the International Transfer of Offenders Act, for example, that says Canada can refuse to take a Canadian prisoner from another country “if it would constitute a threat to the security of Canada.” And what is Omar Khadr if not a threat?

Rule of Law is the precious fabric of our Republic WHILE THE law always has undergone change, such change might not be for the better, particularly in a time when large, well-funded private entities can unduly influence public legislation solely to further their profits. The death of a young Florida teenager at the hands of neighborhood watch participant under the so-called “stand your ground” law is one illustration of a change in traditional law. Normal constitutional process in which a crime is suspected usually requires a probable cause search by trained authorities, arrest, formal charges, right to an attorney and public jury trial. Public trials serve positive purposes for both the people and the accused. A trial in which one’s physical liberty is at stake forces the government to open its case for full community scrutiny and provide strong proof. It also serves to inform the public of the potential dangers posed by the defendant who is on trial. In the now-famous Trayvon Martin incident in Florida, most of the normal legal processes were missing. Instead, a subjective decision was made by an untrained man that a youth walking with candy and a drink was “suspicious.” From there, he alone became the chief investigator (against the advice of a 911 operator), police officer, judge, jury and apparent executioner. Now, it has come to light that the “stand your ground” law at issue was largely the product of an organization called the Amer-

COMMENTARY DAVID I. FALLK ican Legislative Exchange Council, a huge lobbying group funded by numerous big businesses. For years, ALEC has worked behind the scenes and mostly outside the public’s view to craft and advocate for laws favorable to its supporting industries and corporations, including large firearms manufacturers. Many businesses that contribute to ALEC have pushed a legislative agenda that seemingly seeks to circumvent the justice system on fronts other than criminal law. Just as criminal law requires a fair process and public explication of the charges, civil law operates under the Seventh Amendment right to jury trial. Again, the public nature of trials alerts the public to what is occurring in areas that might not be well-known. Alleged dangerous products, error-prone doctors and hospitals, negligent drivers and other wrongdoers all come under scrutiny in courtrooms, where they can be judged by the collective wisdom of jurors who represent the community. However, many of the industries that support ALEC have found a way around the guarantee of jury trials by forcing a contractual, privatized system of justice, and many Americans don’t realize that they have waived their constitutional rights. Virtually

all agreements for cell phones, credit cards, investments or bank accounts now contain mandatory binding arbitration clauses without the right of appeal to the jury system. This private system has been shown to be overly business-friendly, which is why corporations through ALEC and other lobbyists have thwarted most attempts to give consumers back their Seventh Amendment rights. As we celebrate Law Week this week, it is important to recall that the Founding Fathers regarded the rule of law as a precious right. Thomas Jefferson cited the flouting of law and the abuses of both legislative and judicial process as reasons for the Colonies to dissolve their association with King George III. At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Benjamin Franklin admonished a fellow citizen that the Framers had produced a republic “if you can keep it.” Today, thanks to groups such as ALEC and the powerful entities that support them, Franklin’s challenge is perhaps greater than ever. David I. Fallk is a Scranton attorney and president of The Committee for Justice for All.

am very disheartened to have read that Nancy Tkatch, administrative director at West Side Career and Technology Center in Pringle, apparently recommended that the school’s library be closed. As a parent, I cannot understand how this possibly could be in the best interest of our students. My son is an avid reader and borrows books weekly. I am impressed with the wide variety of books that he brings home. Some of our students travel more than an hour to school and do not have access to a public library. Our school needs a library. Many of our students do not have the money for electronic books such as Nook Tablets and Kindles. Research shows how reading skills are critical in every technical profession. I find it interesting that our school board, with the exception of Gerald Conger, voted in favor of eliminating the fulltime librarian’s job, yet all of our five “sending schools” decided to keep their school libraries. In less than one year, we lost our sports program and now, it seems, our library.

Our school is quickly being eroded. What kind of message are we sending to our students? Faye Meyers Plymouth

Pa. budget-slashing will hamper children’s future

I

n hard times we all need to make sacrifices, but I was taught by a very strongwilled, compassionate woman that we always provide for our children’s needs first. In Pennsylvania we are not doing that. The state budget cut $860 million from education last year. Gov. Tom Corbett’s

DOONESBURY

proposed budget this year will increase that overall cut to almost a billion dollars. We, as a nation, have made mistakes in the recent past to bring us to this crisis. We need to learn from that. I know that all of us, some more than others, feel the pain of our situation. As we try to live in the present and are angry about our past, we should be preparing our future. It is only common sense to prepare our children to the best of our ability for their future. We cannot continue to cut our children’s future. A great society is only great because of its well-educated citizenship that becomes involved. I ask you to find out how the state budget is affecting the children in your public school district. Here is a website for more info: www.savepaschools.org. Go to school board meetings. Email, write and call your state legislators and Governor Corbett; tell them that we need to invest in our children’s future. Cutting our children’s future is not the way to fix our problems. Let our children look back on this time and be proud of us, that as parents, citizens, educators, school administrators and state legislators, we invested in their future with a great education.

Luzerne County could get millions

Proceeds of the sale of the SWB Yankee are at issue. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

Lackawanna County could be required to pay Luzerne County half of the $14.6 million proceeds from sale of the region’s Triple-A baseball franchise depending on the outcome of unresolved litigation.

The franchise was purchased by both counties, and Luzerne County has a pending lawsuit arguing Lackawanna is legally required to give Luzerne half the proceeds if the franchise is sold. Lackawanna County filed a countersuit arguing Luzerne County isn’t entitled to any proceeds and owes Lackawanna millions for past stadium repairs. Luzerne County officials said Friday they won’t attempt to

stop the sale from proceeding but will expect payment of their share if their litigation is successful. The Lackawanna County Multi-Purpose Stadium Authority, also named as a defendant in the suit, sold the baseball team Thursday for $14.6 million. Assistant Luzerne County Solicitor Vito DeLuca said he cannot comment on how the sale affects the pending litigation.

The most recent activity in the suit was in February, where attorneys requested it be assigned to a judge so that arguments can be heard. The sale of the team to SWB Yankees LLC, a joint venture of the New York Yankees and Mandalay Baseball Properties, clears the way for reconstruction of PNC Field and a return of baseball to the Moosic stadium in 2013.

Obesity opens door to diabetes in teens

Type II diabetes in the young is hard to get under control, doctors say. By ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer

LOS ANGELES — New research sends a stark warning to overweight teens: If you develop diabetes, you’ll have a very tough time keeping it under control. A major study, released Sunday, tested several ways to manage blood sugar in teens newly diagnosed with diabetes and found that nearly half of them failed within a few years and 1 in 5 suffered serious complications. The results spell trouble for a nation facing rising rates of “diabesity” — Type 2 diabetes brought on by obesity. The federally funded study is the largest look yet at how to treat diabetes in teens. Earlier studies mostly have been in adults, and most diabetes drugs aren’t even approved for youths. The message is clear: Prevention is everything. “Don’t get diabetes in the first place,” said Dr. Phil Zeitler of the University of Colorado Denver, one of the study leaders. A third of American children and teens are overweight or obese. They are at higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, in which the body can’t make enough insulin or use what it does make to process sugar from food. Until the obesity epidemic, doctors rarely saw children with Type 2 diabetes. The more common kind of diabetes in children is Type 1, which used to be called juvenile diabetes. Doctors usually start Type 2 treatment with metformin, a pill to lower blood sugar. If it still can’t be controlled, other drugs and daily insulin shots may be needed. The longer blood sugar runs rampant, the greater the risk of suffering vision loss, nerve damage, kidney failure, limb amputation — even heart attacks and strokes. The goal of the study was simple: What’s the best way for teens to keep diabetes in check?

The study involved 699 overweight and obese teens recently diagnosed with diabetes. All had their blood sugar normalized with metformin, then were given one of three treatments to try to maintain that control: metformin alone, metformin plus diet and exercise counseling, or metformin plus a second drug, Avandia. After nearly four years, half in the metformin group failed to maintain blood sugar control. The odds were a little better for the group that took two drugs but not much different for those in the lifestyle group. Even so, Zeitler said doctors would not recommend this combination drug therapy because Avandia has been linked to higher risk of heart attacks in adults. Those risks became known after this study had started. Another study leader from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Dr. Mitchell Geffner, agreed that Avandia can’t be recommended for teens, but said the study makes clear they will need more than metformin to control their disease. “A single pill or single approach is not going to get the job done,” he said. Among all the teens in the study, 1 in 5 had a serious complication such as very high blood sugar, usually landing them in the hospital. The results were published online Sunday by the New England Journal of Medicine and presented at a pediatric meeting in Boston. The National Institutes of Health funded the study and drug companies donated the medications. The “discouraging” results point to the need to create “a healthier ‘eat less, move more’”culture to help avoid obesity that contributes to diabetes, Dr. David Allen of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health wrote in an accompanying editorial. Judith Garcia still struggles to manage her diabetes with metformin and insulin years after taking part in the study at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She has to remember to watch her diet and set aside time to exercise.

TEENS AND DIABETES • About 215,000 Americans under age 20 have diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body can’t make insulin. Type 2 is related to obesity and occurs when the body can’t use insulin properly. • About 3,600 youths are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes every year. Minorities are disproportionately affected. • Teens can lower their risk of Type 2 diabetes by maintaining a healthy weight, being more active and eating healthy foods. • If diabetes is not controlled, it can lead to serious problems including vision loss, nerve damage, kidney failure, limb amputation — even heart attacks and strokes. • A third of teens are obese or overweight, putting them at risk of Type 2.

“You won’t have an enclosed, dark corridor with no view to the field, which is, of course, what you have now,” Schmitt said. Schmitt compared the anticipated look to the popular CocaCola Park in Allentown, home of the International League rival Lehigh Valley IronPigs, who replaced the former Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Red Barons as the top affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. A Power Point presentation helped Schmitt create a picture of the new stadium in a more than half-hour description of the project at Wednesday’s public hearing at the Scranton Cultural Center. Not much will remain of the current PNC Field, which originally opened as Lackawanna County Stadium in 1989: • Although the seats will be removed and the concrete in the area will be refurbished, the lower bowl structure will remain in place. • The playing field, which was replaced two years ago, will remain as is. • The five-year-old home locker room will be preserved. • The parking lots and existing utilities will be kept. • A groundskeepers bunker in left field also will be retained. “Everything else will be new,” Schmitt said. “Gone will be the entire existing hulking, steel structure and concrete ramps.” Among what will be missing will be the entire upper deck and

its steep steps.

The lawn areas will be on each side of the batter’s eye, the solid wall beyond the center-field fence to create a backdrop for hitters. There will also be a playground along the concourse in center field. The rail viewing will be provided alongside the concourse around the outfield. “There will be 7,500 fixed seats,” Schmitt said. “The balance will be made up by lawn seats and standing areas.” The three sections behind home plate will be premium seating that is 22 inches wide. Those sections will be flanked with 20-inch-wide seats. Beyond the dugouts, further down the foul lines, the seats will be 19 inches wide. The pressbox will be built into the back of the main level.

Luxury suites A party level, including luxury suites and club seats, will be added where the current luxury box and pressbox level exists. Schmitt said the design objectives were to create a 360-degree concourse, eliminate the upper deck and provide a choice of seating options while improving the fan experience while creating a signature feature. That signature feature will be blending the outfield walkway into the side of the mountain, which provides the backdrop beyond the outfield. “What we believe the signature feature is now is the view out beyond the outfield wall,” Schmitt said. “In the new ballpark, we aim to enhance that feature by extending the main concourse around the outfield, connecting it to the hillside, literally marrying the hillside with the ballpark. “So, the hillside is not only a backdrop but a part of the stadium.” Without the upper deck, the stadium seating will be reduced but the addition of rail viewing and outfield lawn seating will leave it with a capacity of 10,000, matching the International League’s minimum requirement.

Large concession stands Four large concession stands, two each on the first- and thirdbase side, are planned along with three sets of rest rooms, which will be positioned behind home plate and on the first- and third-base sides. Schmitt said the main entrance will be similar with a team store that is approximately three times larger than what had been in place. There will be just one level above the ground for the suites

and club. The 18 suites will be situated with 14 on the third-base side and four on the first-base side. Two of the boxes will be party boxes that can be rented on a pergame basis. A removable partition will allow the boxes to be combined for larger parties. Open-air party decks will be at each end. The second level will also include 330 club seats behind home plate, extending to the first-base side. They will have access to the club lounge. That section includes semicircular, four-seat tables that can be purchased as a set of four for those who want to be able to enjoy dining during the game. The club seats are all outdoors, but the connecting lounge has heating and air-conditioning. The lounge will be available for off-season use, such as parties, but the stadium will no longer include a restaurant. There are two more sets of restrooms on the club level. The renovations include one that will have an impact on play. Outfield dimensions remain the same, but the wall height will be altered from its existing 14 feet to 8 feet, 5 inches, the height at Yankee Stadium in New York. “Lowering the height makes it that much more of an intimate experience for fans enjoying the game against the rail in the outfield,” Schmitt said, “and, it does provide an opportunity that does not exist today for a player to take a stab at one of those dramatic plays where he robs a home run by reaching over the fence.”

Sentencing Commission likely to propose changes to child-porn sentence guidelines Debate exists within legal community as to whether sentences are too severe. By DAVID CRARY AP National Writer

NEW YORK — Their crimes are so loathsome that some hardened courtroom veterans recoil at viewing the evidence. Yet child-pornography offenders are now the focus of an intense debate within the legal community as to whether the federal sentences they face have become, in many cases, too severe. By the end of this year, after a review dating to 2009, the U.S. Sentencing Commission plans to release a report that’s likely to propose changes to the sentenc-

ing guidelines that it oversees. It’s a daunting task, given the polarized viewpoints that the commission is weighing. The issue “is highly charged, both emotionally and politically,” said one of the six commissioners, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell. On one side of the debate, many federal judges and public defenders say repeated moves by Congress to toughen the penalties over the past 25 years have badly skewed the guidelines, to the point where offenders who possess and distribute child pornography can go to prison for longer than those who actually rape or sexually abuse a child. In a 2010 survey of federal judges by the Sentencing Commission, about 70 percent said the pro-

posed ranges of sentences for possession and receipt of child pornography were too high. Demonstrating their displeasure, federal judges issued child porn sentences below the guidelines 45 percent of the time in 2010, more than double the rate for all other crimes. On the other hand, some prosecutors and members of Congress, as well as advocates for sexualabuse victims, oppose any push for more leniency. At a public hearing in February, the Sentencing Commission received a victim’s statement lamenting that child pornography offenders “are being entertained by my shame and pain.” “They need to be taught how much pain they inflict and a grea-

ter term of imprisonment will teach them that, (and) will comfort victims seeking justice,” the victim said. “I don’t believe that short periods of imprisonment will accomplish these things.” Once completed, the Sentencing Commission report will be submitted to Congress, which

could shelve it or incorporate its recommendations into new legislation. Already, the commission has conveyed some concerns. In a 2010 report on mandatory minimum sentences, the commission said the penalties for certain child pornography offenses “may

be excessively severe and as a result are being applied inconsistently.” However, similar misgivings voiced by the commission in previous years failed to deter Congress from repeatedly ratcheting up the penalties — including legislation in 2003 that more than doubled average sentences for child pornography crimes. Many of the offenses carry a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison, and the guidelines call for additional penalties — known as enhancements — based on a range of factors, such as the age of the children depicted in the imagery and whether a computer was used in the crime. As of last year, the median sentence was seven years.

SWB jumps to an early lead and cruises to a comfortable victory over Lehigh Valley. By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

ALLENTOWN – Last year, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees missed the postseason for the first time since moving to Northeast Pennsylvania in 2007. After a slow start this season, the Yankees are surging back to the top of the standings. The team scored eight runs in the first two innings on Sunday at Coca Cola Park en route to an 8-2 YANKEES win over Lehigh Valley. The win moves the YanIRONPIGS kees (12-10) percentage points ahead of Lehigh Valley (13-11) for third place in the International League North Division, and just two games behind division leader Pawtucket. SWB is also two games over .500 for the first time this season as it won three straight over Lehigh Valley after losing the series opener on Thursday. The Yankees have now won eight of 10 after starting the season 4-8. The offense stepped up big for the Yankees with a total of eight walks in the contest, 20 base runners and each batter in the lineup reached base at least once. “We had some good at-bats,”

RUNNING

75-year-old outpacing Father Time Anthony Cerminaro has had a passion for running that hasn’t waned over the years. By MATTHEW SHUTT For The Times Leader

JERMYN – Often, when we sit back to enjoy a sporting event, we find ourselves marveling at the prowess of the athletes in front of us. We remark about how fast or agile a wide receiver or a point guard is, or how much strength a linebacker needs to take down a quarterback. We know about their endurance and hard work put in during practices just to get on the field in the first place, and we tell ourselves we should enjoy it while we can, because it might be over once an athlete hits his or her mid-30s.

PHILADELPHIA — Danny Briere had two chances to celebrate his overtime winner. The first time, his goal didn’t count. The second time, Briere left no doubt and put away Game 1, once and for all. Briere continued to stamp his name alongside Philadelphia’s postseason greats, scoring the winning goal 4:36 into overtime, leading the Flyers to a 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday to open this Eastern Conference semifinal series. “He has his ups and downs, but

he just picks it up in the playoffs. And that’s what matters,” Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. “He’s a guy who consistently gets it done.” Indeed, no Flyer is as clutch in the postseason as Briere. His second attempt at the winner counted minutes after his earlier goal was overturned on review because he kicked the puck into the net. But he wasted no time making up for it, firing a slapper past Martin Brodeur for his seventh goal of the playoffs. Brodeur was screened in front by Philadelphia forward James van Riemsdyk. “When you look at the replay,

it’s kind of obvious,” Briere said of the reversal. “But I needed to stop pouting and get back my focus in overtime. I ended up getting a break.” In doing so, Briere, who also scored in the second period, now has 106 points in 104 career postseason games. “Is it pressure? I think it’s fun,” he said of playoff hockey. “When I have the opportunity, like I’ve had the past few years here, I try to take advantage of the opportunities.” Game 2 is Tuesday. The Flyers took the series lead See FLYERS, Page 4B

Ex-Comet signs free agent deal with Dolphins Kyle Bogumil, a guard at the University of Rhode Island, reports to Miami Thursday. By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

Former Crestwood football standout Kyle Bogumil is getting a chance at the NFL. Bogumil, a 6-foot-6, 310pound guard who played at the University of Rhode Island, signed as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins shortly after the completion of

the NFL Draft on Saturday night. Bogumil was on his way from Rhode Island to Mountain Top on Sunday evening and unavailable for comment. From there, he’ll stop in Harrisburg to see his agent before reporting to the Dolphins on Thursday. The Dolphins are holding a three-day mini-camp this weekend for drafted and undrafted rookies. Although the odds are high for an undrafted player to make an NFL roster, Bogumil brings an impressive resume to Miami. He started every game at guard

for Rhode Island since the start of the 2009 season. He was a Colonial Athletic Association second-team selection for the second consecutive year. He was a team captain and presented the Bob Griffin Award, which is given to the player who “displays high character and exemplary leadership skills.” Bogumil worked out for NFL personnel on March 6 at Rhode Island’s pro day. Rhode Island players also participated at Brown University’s pro day a See BOGUMIL, Page 4B

It’s time to think like a Visigoth

HISTORY’S GREAT barbarian hordes had one thing in common. They smelled bad. OK, so maybe they had two things in common. Apart from bad personal hygiene, they were also nasty fierce warriors who had ruthlessness down to an art. As a savvy fantasy owner, you may want to adopt some of the better traits of the ancient barbarians to help you as the season’s first month draws to a close. Rather than take on their bathing habits -- which would not be a popular move among your friends -- this may be a good time to employ a little barbarian strategy. It’s time to go on a raiding party. You can do this one of two ways. First, you can aggressively target an underperforming star via the trade route. Or, you can wait for an owner to panic and cut loose a player you covet. Then, channel your inner Visigoth, swoop in and grab him. The question is, which players should you target? These guys, of course. You may not be able to pry them loose from your fellow owners, but you should at least try. JUSTIN UPTON, OF, DIAMONDBACKS: He finished third in NL MVP voting in 2011, but a .230 average, one HR and three RBI in April won’t get him many Player of the Month votes. Thing is, he’s too good a player to keep hitting like a utility infielder. Somehow, he’ll find a way to cram in 30 HR and 80-90 RBI in the next few months. And you want him doing that for your team. DAN UGGLA, 2B, BRAVES: Yes, his name sounds like one of those Star Wars creatures at the spaceport in Mos Eisley, but his HR and RBI numbers have been “beauggtiful” for fantasy owners the last few years. (OK, that was a bad pun. Sorry.) In 2011, he had 14 HR in mid July. He finished with 36. Like a lot of power hitters, he warms up with the weather. So make a play for him now, and enjoy some nice August-September production. JACOBY ELLSBURY, OF, RED SOX: What you need to do is find the Ellsbury owner in your league, buy him or her a beer, and drop the words, “subluxation of the shoulder,” a few times. Then, whisper about how Ellsbury’s 2010 season was derailed by a host of injuries. Then, when you acquire Ellsbury in a trade, go to church and pray that he stays healthy. Why? Because all those things about him are true, and you don’t want them to happen again when he’s on your team. A healthy Jacoby Ellsbury at the top of the Boston lineup, you see, is fantasy gold. TIM HUDSON, SP, BRAVES: The Atlanta starter had offseason spinal surgery which pushed back his 2012 debut by a month. The words “spinal surgery” and the fact Hudson isn’t a big strikeout pitcher may be enough for you to shake him loose from his

GOLF ROUNDUP

Dufner tastes PGA Tour victory for first time The Associated Press

AVONDALE, La. — Jason Dufner beat Ernie Els with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff Sunday in the Zurich Classic to win for the first time in 164 starts on the PGA Tour. After entering the fourth round with a two-shot lead, Dufner shot a 2-under 70 at TPC Louisiana. Els had a 67 to match Dufner at 19-under 269. After both players missed birdie putts within 8 feet on the par-5 18th, they went back to the 18th tee for the second extra hole, which Dufner won by hitting the green in two strokes and tapping home a short birdie putt after Els’ birdie attempt from the fringe narrowly missed. Dufner lost playoffs last year to Mark Wilson in the Phoenix Open and Keegan Bradley in the PGA Championship for two of his three career runnerup finishes. The 6-foot-3 Els, who goes by the nickname “The Big Easy,” hasn’t won on the PGA Tour since the 2010 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, a little more than two years ago. He did not have a single bogey in the final round or playoff, and would have won his 19th career PGA Tour event in, of all places, the Big Easy, if he could have made a birdie putt of a little less than 6 feet on the first playoff hole. He pushed it more than 2 feet past the edge

of the hole. On the second playoff hole, Els’ tee shot went into a fairway bunker, and his second shot landed 137 yards from the pin. His third shot landed on the fringe, nearly 19 feet from the pin, but he nearly saved birdie from there, his putt missing by 2 inches. Luke Donald shot a 67 to finish third at 17 under, and move past Rory McIlroy for the No. 1 ranking. Mobile Bay LPGA Classic MOBILE, Ala. — Stacy Lewis won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic on Sunday for her second LPGA Tour title, holding off hard-charging teen Lexi Thompson by a stroke.

Lewis, who held a five-stroke lead early in the day, reclaimed the edge with a birdie on No. 16, while the 17-year-old Thompson parred the final hole and had to wait. Lewis parred out. Her week was so solid that her finishing 3-under 69 was her worst round en route to a 17-under 271 total. The former Arkansas star also won the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship. Thompson found redemption from her final-round fall in Mobile a year ago. She didn’t flinch under the pressure given a second shot, closing with rounds of 66 and 65, tying her career low in a bogey-free round. Lewis secured the win with a

two-putt par from the edge of the green. France’s Karine Icher closed with a 68 to finish third, two strokes back. Ballantine’s Championship SEOUL, South Korea — Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger won the Ballantine’s Championship for his first European Tour title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a five-stroke victory. Wiesberger finished at 18 under on the Blackstone course in the event also sanctioned by the Asian Tour. He’s the third Austrian to win on the European Tour, following Markus Brier and Martin Wiegele. Scotland’s Richie Ramsay had a 65 to finish second.

Kobe, Bynum star in Lakers win tributing at least four points, the Hawks raced to a 20-6 lead with the game just over 5 minutes old.

ta Hawks to an 83-74 victory over Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs Sunday night, the final minute turning ugly when Celtics star Rajon Rondo was ejected for bumping an official. The Hawks, who led by as many as 19 in the first half, were clinging to a four-point lead when Rondo lost his cool with 41 seconds remaining — and may have cost himself a chance to play Game 2 Tuesday night. Brandon Bass was called for a foul on Smith tussling for a loose ball. Rondo screamed at official Marc Davis, who quickly called a technical. Rondo then bumped Davis with his chest and was tossed out. A suspension could be coming, too. Rondo scored 20 points and dished out 11 assists, but none of it mattered when he lost his cool. The Celtics not only lost this game, they might’ve lost their floor leader for the next one. He clearly stuck out his chest to strike the official, which will almost surely draw the wrath of NBA Commissioner David Stern. The Hawks got off to a dazzling start, looking much quicker and faster than the aging Celtics. With every starter outside of Jason Collins con-

Spurs 106, Jazz 91 SAN ANTONIO — Tony Parker scored 28 points and the San Antonio Spurs won their first playoff opener in four years, beating the Utah Jazz 106-91 in Game 1 of their firstround series Sunday. Tim Duncan added 17 points and 11 rebounds, helping the Spurs dodge another early playoff letdown. Despite boasting the No. 1 seed again, San Antonio hadn’t won a Game 1 in its last six postseason series — including the one that began a shocking first-round ouster last year. Paul Millsap led Utah with 20 points. The Jazz hung close until the third, when the NBA’s top 3-point shooting team began burying Utah with three in a two-minute burst to finish the quarter. The Spurs have won 11 in a row.

Miami added just one lineman in the draft, taking Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin in the second round. Bogumil was a star tight end at Crestwood. He was named to the Associated Press Class 3A All-State second team as a senior

roads and reaches through the Appalachian Trail. “That’s the hardest part, the trail,” Cerminaro said. “The hills, you can’t jog up some of them, they’re so steep. Then, when you come out of that trail and you’re coming off the mountain, you have to move sideways, back and forth as you go down, or else you know you’re going to fall right off.” A daunting task for any runner, no doubt. For Cerminaro? “When I turned 70, I shattered the age group record by almost 40 minutes. I ran it in nine hours and nine minutes, the record was nine hours and 37 minutes.” With every intention of entering again this year, he is looking forward to joining “The 500 Milers Club.” “That’s the real challenge, the real thrill of it is getting to that 500 club. That’s 10 in a row … and I’ll be there this year for sure.” While the 50 Miler is obviously more than Cerminaro grew accustomed to, and though he looks forward to it, he can’t abandon his first love for the marathon. “I just ran one in Lackawaxen, and finished fourth overall and the Two River Marathon,” he said earlier this month. “There there’s going to be the Boston (he finished 8,983rd overall in 4:01:50 on a hot, steamy day), and a month after that the Pocono

Mountain Run for Red in Salsburg, Steamtown and then in October I’ll be back in Steamtown for the Steamtown Marathon. I wouldn’t miss that one.” It’s easy to come to term with Anthony’s reasoning for not missing out on the Steamtown Marathon. He’s won his age group 16 years in a row and counting. Anthony is quick to attribute much of his ability to his healthy ways – he’s a vegetarian – and his work ethic. He runs with the Electric City Runners club, based in Scranton, and the Wyoming Valley Striders, crediting both with helping him stay as fit as he is. However, above all that goes into such a dedication, what might make it the easiest for Cerminaro, who now admits that his times might be a little slower than they once were, might not have anything to do with proper diet or the right training schedule. “When I got my very first start, I started running races to get into them with my friends,” he said. “There’s a lot of good camaraderie when you go to these places, meeting people. And I love it. I get a lot out of it … I’ve made loads of friends. “I’ve got no reason to stop, not as long as my body holds up and I keep enjoying it,” he said. ““When you get older you slow down a little bit, but, you don’t stop.”

Mid-30s? Surely, the notion would cause 75-year-old Anthony Cerminaro to scoff, lace up his running shoes, start his daily running and maybe, just maybe, call it a day an hour and a half later. “I try to run 60 miles a week. If I can get in it, I’ll do that,” said Cerminaro of his training habits. “I get a lot of phone calls from people asking me questions like, ‘How do I get started? What do I do?’ Well … It’s got to be in you. If it’s in you, you’ll know.” Considering Cerminaro’s history, he’s undoubtedly a man who knows. For 28 years now, Cerminaro has been running all the distance races he can enter. And not just running in them, but winning his age group at a staggering rate. His success these days can be credited to his hard work and his stickwith-it attitude, even when it wasn’t so easy at first. “Well, back when I was about 27, my buddy Eddie took me out for a jog,” Cerminaro said. “He showed up and said ‘C’mon we’re going to go for a jog.’ We only went for a couple of miles but when I came back, I was exhausted.” “Soon after that, he came by

again and told me he heard about a 10k race that was going to be held in Throop. I said to him ‘A race? Are you kidding me?’,” Cerminaro said. “But once I got going, I got hooked.” After that fateful first race, Cerminaro’s newfound need to keep running took him to the New York City Marathon three years later. He broke through the finish line in a time of 2:59 minutes, clearing the three-hour mark which is often held as a benchmark for beginners. Since that first marathon, Cerminaro has gone on to compete in 78 marathons -- a race covering 26.2 miles. Of those 78 races, he has finished in under three hours on 34 occasions, and won his age group more than 50 times. “Usually, maybe one or two 50year-olds beat me with their overall time, but the 60-year-olds and anyone older than that, huh-uh,” said Cerminaro with a chuckle. His accomplishments include twice winning the Boston Marathon’s Senior Masters division and eventually winning the New York City Marathon in his age bracket … but they don’t stop at just marathons. Just as recently as November, Cerminaro competed – for the ninth time – in the JFK 50 Miler. The 50 Miler, held in Hagerstown, Md., is a race that for a 13mile stretch forgets all about flat

in their first game in a week after eliminating Pittsburgh in Game 6 last Sunday. The weary Devils, meanwhile, played their third consecutive overtime game after defeating Florida in Games 6 and 7 to win their first-round series. “I thought we played real well in the first,” New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer said. “We just couldn’t keep it up.” The Flyers put a slow start well behind them in the third and completely set the pace. They used a tremendous forecheck to stave off the Devils and played with more life in their skates than a worndown Devils team that had only a three-day break. And then, there’s Flyers forward Claude Giroux. The postseason’s leading scorer got himself into the series, as well, in the third period. Giroux, in fact, wound from the circle and fired the puck high over Brodeur’s right shoulder for a power-play goal and a 3-2 lead. It was Giroux’s seventh goal of the postseason, perhaps living up to Laviolette’s bold claim as, “the best in the world.” Veteran forward Petr Sykora wiped out the lead, though, when he raced past two defenders off a turnover and slipped the puck through Ilya Bryzgalov’s pads for a soft goal to make it 3-3. It was his first playoff goal since 2008. But Briere was the difference in overtime. “I think,” Laviolette said, “ev-

said leadoff hitter and left fielder Kevin Russo. “We weren’t chasing a lot and one through nine were having great at-bats.” Lehigh Valley’s Cody Overbeck blasted a two-run home run in the top of the first on to the bank in left center field for a 2-0 lead. That lead was short-lived as the Yankees answered right back in the bottom of the frame batting around and scoring five times highlighted by three consecutive two-out hits. The first run came when Jayson Nix drove in Russo with a single. Colin Curtis doubled in two more and the last two were plated on a two-run single from Craig Tatum as the Yankees opened a 5-2 lead after one. SWB opened up a six-run lead in the bottom of the second with a three-run inning on just one hit. Russo again started the inning reaching base, this time with a walk after a hit by pitch in the first. Once the Yankees loaded the bases with no outs, Nix hit a sacrifice fly to score Russo. The next batter, Jack Cust, skied a ball to leftfielder Domonic Brown, but the Phillies prospect misplayed the ball allowing two more runs to score and an 8-2 Yankees’ advantage. Mike O’Connor (1-0) got the start for the Yankees because probable starter D.J. Mitchell got called up to New York for the first time in his career on Sunday. O’Connor rebounded from the rough first inning to allow just one hit after that point. He picked up the win going five innings, allowing just four hits while striking out four. He retired the last 10 batters he faced. Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte pitched three scoreless innings with three strikeouts for the Yankees giving up three hits, while Juan Cedeno ended the game with a scoreless ninth. “Mike did a heck of a job of getting us in the game there,” Venditte said. “To get five innings out of him was huge. For him to do that really got us going, and our

owner’s roster and onto yours. He’s a remarkably consistent starting pitcher who puts up wins and quality ERA and WHIP numbers. As long as you have another guy on your team who racks up the Ks, Hudson is a winning complimentary piece. YOVANI GALLARDO, SP, BREWERS: If he can only avoid pitching against St. Louis, Gallardo’s actually having a pretty good

eryone expects it from him now.” After finishing fifth in the East, the Flyers stormed to a 3-0 lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round and held on to eliminate their state rival in six games. That series was viewed as one more worthy of a conference final because of the talent and the 100-plus point totals for each club. The Devils, the No. 6 seed, topped 100 points, as well, and were out to prove themselves worthy of Round 2. And in the first period, they did so. Of course, the Flyers helped, as they carried over their trend of falling behind from the opening a round and showed again they are at their best when playing with a deficit. “Nobody liked the first period. The players didn’t like it. I didn’t like it. No one liked it,” Laviolette said. “So, it was good to get through the first period, only down 1-0.” Coyotes 5, Predators 3 GLENDALE, Ariz. — Shane Doan, Radim Vrbata and Antoine Vermette each had a goal and an assist, and the Phoenix Coyotes avoided their usual overtime theatrics, beating the Nashville Predators 5-3 on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series. Martin Hanzal and Taylor Pyatt also scored for the Coyotes. Ryan Suter, Patric Hornqvist and Andrei Kostitsyn scored for the Predators. Phoenix scored three times on 19 second-period shots. The Coyotes built a two-goal lead early in the second period. Nashville twice cut it to one only to see Phoenix quickly respond. offense really helped us getting us that big lead so all we had to do was get ahead and attack the hitters.” Russo, who entered the game as an IronPig tormenter with a .500 batting average in four games this season, was hitless on Sunday going 0-for-1, but reached base four times with three walks and a hit by pitch and scored twice. With his two runs scored, he has crossed the plate five times in five games against Lehigh Valley. “That’s baseball, that’s just what happens,” Russo said about his success against the ’Pigs this season. “I go into every series the same way. That’s just kind of how it happens sometimes.” Notes: The longest “homestand” of the season for Yankees, an 18-game stint at four different venues, which goes through May 14, will continue Tuesday. After a day off today, they head to Rochester for four games against the Red Wings, to Batavia for a pair with Pawtucket then back to Rochester for eight more against Columbus and Durham…The weekend series was the second time Coca Cola Park served as a home venue for the Yankees. On July 9-10 in 2009, the Yankees and IronPigs played a two-game series in Allentown due to drainage issues at PNC Field and split the short series...Manny Banuelos, currently on the SWB disabled list, threw a simulated game Sunday morning and is Wednesday’s probable starter for Wednesday’s game against Rochester…Brett Gardner, New York’s injured outfielder, is scheduled to join Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

year. In two starts against the Cardinals he’s pitched a total of 52⁄3 innings and given up 14 earned runs. That figures out to be a 22.26 ERA and would probably get him sent down to the Brewers’ Siberian affiliate. In his other three starts, he’s pitched 21innings, struck out 21, and given up 4 earned runs. That’s a 1.71 ERA folks, and that’s the kind of numbers you want pitching for your team. The bad news is, he’ll have a few more starts against the Cards this year. The good news, more of his starts will be against teams NOT based in St. Louis.

Sabathia sharp in Yankees win NEW YORK — CC Sabathia steadied New York’s rocky rotation with eight sharp innings, Alex Rodriguez passed Willie Mays for eighth on the career RBIs list and the Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 on Sunday despite leaving 14 men on base in the first six innings. Rodriguez drove in two runs without hitting the ball out of the infield, leaving him with 1,904 RBIs. He singled on a dribbler down the third-base line with the bases loaded in the second, the Yankees’ only hit in six plate appearances with three men on. Chris Stewart slid under catcher Gerald Laird’s tag on Rodriguez’s grounder to shortstop in the seventh. Indians 4, Angels 0

CLEVELAND — Derek Lowe pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning and the Indians scored three runs on Angels errors. Lowe (4-1) retired 12 batters on ground balls, including Albert Pujols three times. Pujols also struck out against Chris Perez, extending his career-long homerless streak to 117 at-bats.

BALTIMORE — Wilson Betemit hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning after Matt Wieters doubled in two runs, giving the Orioles an unlikely victory. Oakland starter Bartolo Colon took a four-hit shutout into the ninth without allowing a runner past second base. MINNEAPOLIS — Josh Willingham had three hits and the Twins snapped a six-game losing streak. Jason Marquis (2-0) threw six strong innings for Minnesota, which also got three hits and a pair of RBIs from Danny Valencia. Blue Jays 7, Mariners 2

Cubs’ Garza dissects punchless Phillies PHILADELPHIA — Matt Garza pitched one-hit ball for seven shutout innings and struck out 10 Sunday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1. Garza (2-1) gave up a pop-fly single to Jimmy Rollins leading off the first and nothing more. Garza retired 20 of the next 21 batters, with Juan Pierre’s seventh-inning walk accounting for the only other baserunner. Mets 6, Rockies 5, 11 innings

DENVER — Ike Davis singled in the go-ahead run in the 11th inning and the New York Mets overcame two tying homers allowed by their bullpen to beat the Colorado Rockies 6-5 Sunday. David Wright started the 11th with a single off Matt Belisle (1-2) and Lucas Duda followed with a single. After Scott Hairston hit into a fielder’s choice, Davis lined a single to left to score Wright and rescue the Mets. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0

LOS ANGELES — Chris Capuano struck out nine while combining with two relievers on a four-hitter, James Loney drove in two runs with a basesloaded single and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals with a 2-0 victory on Sunday.

Brewers 3, Cardinals 2

Warmer temperatures will be moving into our area this week along with some scattered showers and maybe even a thunderstorm or two. This morning will be cold with partly cloudy skies, but then warm up to 65. Rain is possible in the evening hours. The temperatures will continue to rise as we head into Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but rain showers will be in the forecast, too, with the possibility of thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday. We will have another day of 80 degree weather Friday. Temperatures go back into the mid-70s for the weekend, with the chance for more rain. - Michelle Rotella

Niece’s absence of table manners turns family dinner into a disaster Dear Abby: My 11-year-old niece, “Nina,” has no table manners. I was surprised at her behavior because her parents are welleducated people who were raised with good table manners. I didn’t say anything when Nina slathered clotted cream on her scone with her fingers, but I was disgusted. I did suggest she use a spoon after she scooped rice out of a communal bowl with her hand. Both of these incidents happened in restaurants. Is there anything I can do when I must eat with this child? I know it may have been wrong of me to correct Nina in front of her mother, but we were all eating from the same

DEAR ABBY ADVICE bowl. Should I keep my mouth shut? — Lost My Appetite in Houston Dear Lost Your Appetite: By age 11, children should have mastered basic table manners. (Not eating with one’s fingers is one of the basics.) Is your niece learning-disabled? If the answer is no, you should discuss this with your sibling. Nina is at an age when she needs to know what’s expected of her when she’s out in public. Dear Abby: My son came out of the closet last year. My first reaction was to tell him it was OK. I love him and

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

we’re a close family. His brothers and sisters also accept and love him. My husband and I are now struggling because we’re not sure how God really views gays and lesbians. To listen to some religious people, my son will go to hell. I can’t believe that God would create a person to be this way, then turn His back on him. I tried reading the Bible, but the wording was hard to understand. I don’t want to talk to my pastor about it because, even though I have accepted my son for who he is, I still have trouble talking to people about it. Do you believe a gay person will go to heaven? — Somewhere in the USA Dear Somewhere: I believe that entrance to heaven is based upon a per-

CRYPTOQUOTE

son’s character, not his or her sexual orientation. Today, because of modern scientific studies, we know more about homosexuality than was known when the Bible was written, and that sexual orientation is not a “choice.” Dear Abby: Our daughter keeps hinting that we should give her money for her in vitro fertilization. We have concerns based on many issues, but the bottom line is we’re not sure if she can handle motherhood. Our daughter’s marriage is shaky, and she struggles with many of her relationships and commitments in life. She is disabled by anxiety. Not only do we believe we should stay out of this, but we also think they can afford the procedure themselves. We would be happy for them if they had a

child, but we prefer to avoid the money connection. What do you think? — Undecided in Missouri Dear Undecided: If you give your daughter money, it would be better spent on counseling and medication to help her overcome her anxiety disorder. A baby will not fix a shaky marriage, and could very well complicate it. Because your daughter and her husband can afford to pay for it themselves, they should not be hitting you up to fund the endeavor. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Whether you are in charge of making the rules for children, employees or yourself, you have to follow through with what you said you’d do, or it’s not going to work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your choice of language will make a difficult message more palatable or a boring message exciting. Your beautiful way with words is most attractive to others. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Circumstances haven’t allowed you to follow your own whims as much as you’d like. You’ll have more freedom to do so today because you’ll guard against time intruders. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Time to yourself seems like such a luxury lately, but it shouldn’t have to be this way. Be proactive as you look ahead to the weeks to come. Block out large chunks of time that you could dedicate to what you want to do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll let your loved ones know that their opinions are valid by giving in to them every once in a while. Your compromise is a form of love that won’t soon be forgotten. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are not always comfortable being direct about your concerns, but directness is the best approach today. Make it clear that you are interested in hearing other people’s thoughts, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You expect people to do what they say they’ll do, and that expectation will mostly be met, though not every single time. Hold people to their word. Accountability is at the core of human decency.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You were not formally educated in a certain matter, and you’ll be shown where the gaps in your knowledge lie. After you fill in the gaps, you’ll be offered an exciting opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You haven’t chosen an easy path for yourself, but it’s a beautiful path and an important one. The effort you put in gives you a sense of pride. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Something that seems like a good idea at first may prove unwise in the endgame. So think through your strategy before you make a move. Imagine what the long term effect of your actions might be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll feel terrific when you get enough sleep and eat right. There are good reasons for why you haven’t been able to do this, but now you’ll find a better reason to take care of yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your productivity will be impacted by many factors. Knowing what they are will help you to create and maintain the status you prefer. Study your habits. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 30). As you acknowledge the wise part of you, it grows. Your wisdom emerges and guides you toward greater control of your destiny. You’ll break old patterns and establish new ones. A love relationship inspires you to move or travel in July. October brings the chance to invest in yourself. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 24, 39, 1 and 20.
