HARRISBURG – Twelve Luzerne County municipalities will cash in on more than $12 million in state revenue raised by the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino in Plains Township.

DALLAS TWP. – Chief Gathering LLC has filed plans “under protest” for a portion of its Wyoming County Pipeline Project with township officials because attorneys for the company believe land development and zoning approvals aren’t required. The proposed 6.25-mile, 24-inch pipeline would start at the border of Wyoming and Luzerne counties, cross state Route 309 and zigzag throughout 23 properties in a southeast direction, where it would tap into the Williams-owned Transco interstate pipeline near the Dallas School District campus. The company also is proposing a natural gas metering station. The project would have a 100foot right-of-way for construction

purposes that would last between two and three months. Ted Wurfel, vice president of environmental, safety and regulatory affairs for Chief, said the complete pipeline is “approximately 30 miles,” but he could not release any more details about the project. A letter sent to township officials written by Chief attorney Kenneth Komoroski states Chief takes the position the company

“does not need local zoning, subdivision, and/or land development approval or review” to proceed with its plans for the pipeline project. He also said Chief has never had to apply for land development in any other municipality for a pipeline. He argues the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Code does See PIPELINE, Page 14A

Students at Bear Creek Charter like new schedule By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

BEAR CREEK TWP. -- A new school schedule and elective options for fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighthgraders at Bear Creek Community Charter School are being well received by students, the school’s principal reported Thursday. Margaret Foster told the board of trustees that the seventh- and eighth-graders who heard about the new schedule, which calls for longer class periods to allow for more in depth work, were enthusiastic. The new plan, which was developed by Foster and the middle school teachers, will also include new electives such as enhanced environmental science and world culture studies, and new options for music and physical education, including guitar and dance. “The kids are psyched and they asked thoughtful, intelligent questions about it,” Foster said of her meeting

with next year’s seventh and eighth graders. Next year’s fifth- and sixthgraders will be introduced to the new schedule today, Foster said, and parents will have an opportunity to meet with her next week to go through the scheduling process. Foster said most of the changes, including the electives, will be done at little cost. Besides a computer lab that the school was already considering, the main cost will be for guitars, some text books and some extra materials for Odyssey of the Mind and a few other courses, the board was told. In other business, the board reviewed the proposed budget for the 2011-12 school year. Tentatively set at $4,679,579, the spending plan will be finalized at next month’s meeting. The board also reviewed changes to the student handbook and considered options for revising the criteria for honor roll.

Hanover Area eyes its options School board looks at early retirements as one way for the district to save money. By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

HANOVER TWP. – The Hanover Area School Board is still wrestling with budgetary problems. George Shovlin,solicitor, said administrative staff has agreed to a salary freeze, there remains an effort to eliminate teacher positions through retirements and there are proposals to cut programs, including seventh- and eighth-grade sports. But there are fiscal issues that have yet to be resolved. One major step in this process, according to statements at the meeting, is what Shovlin and John Pericci, board president, called the “early separation program.” This step involves 23 teachers accepting early retirement. Shovlin said there are already eight teachers who have told the administration they will retire at the end of the present term. But overall, Pericci said, there are 23 teachers who have enough service to qualify them for retirement. If they accept, Pericci estimated that a savings of $1.6 million in salary and benefits could be realized. Shovlin said there are still plans to “eliminate positions,” but the board hopes to avert furloughs through these retirements. In addition, Shovlin said the Hanover Area Education Association has been approached about supporting cost reductions and the union has given indications that it is willing to

WSCTC approves tentative $6.1M budget Proposed spending plan calls for small decrease in costs for the member school districts. By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

PRINGLE – Sending schools could see a small decrease in the amount they pay to the West Side Career and Technology Center if a tentative budget approved Wednesday gains final approval later this month. The tech school’s joint operating committee approved a tentative budget of $6.1 million, which is $236,284 less than the final budget approved for the 2010-11 school year. That would represent a savings for the five districts that send students to the tech school, including Dallas, Lake-Lehman,

Wyoming Area, Northwest Area and Wyoming Valley West. The budget is set to be on the agenda when the committee meets again May 24. The meeting began with a moment of silence in memory of committee member Peter Farrell, a Lake-Lehman representative to the committee who died recently in a car accident. In calling for the moment of silence, fellow Lake-Lehman director and tech school committee President Butch Rossi called Farrell a “great school director who always put the kids first.” Rossi said Farrell would be missed. In other business, the committee revised the school calendar for the remainder of the 2010-11 school year. The final day for students and graduation day will now be June 13.

The board also approved the transfer of Elaine Pallone, the current principal’s secretary/main office supervisor, to the position of secretary to the administrative director, effective July 1. Pallone will retain the main office supervisor’s duties and be paid according to her current Act 93 contract. Other actions approved included: • A request by Dallas Little League to use tech school fields, due to the construction under way at the Dallas High School • Travel expenses totaling $4,993 to send student Marissa Solomon and two chaperones to the National SKILLS competition in Kansas City, Mo., in late June. It was noted that $1,250 of the cost will be funded by student fundraisers.

Police say man smashed his way into a house after he crashed his pickup on North Washington Street

Man arrested after W-B crash By EDWARD LEWIS

WILKES-BARRE – Police allege a drunken George Peter Moses smashed his way into an occupied house minutes after crashing his pickup truck into another car on North Washington Street early Thursday morning. Moses, 30, of Terrace Street, WilkesBarre, was captured when he was spotted climbing out a broken window of a house after officers followed a blood trail on the sidewalk, according to charges filed. Still wearing his clothes stained in blood, Moses was arraigned several hours later in Wilkes-Barre Central

Court late Thursday morning on charges of burglary, criminal trespass, accidents involving damage to unattended vehicle, driving with a suspended license, loiMoses tering and prowling at night, and driving under the influence. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $10,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: Police investigated a two-vehicle crash at North Washington and Beau-

mont streets at about 2:30 a.m. When an officer pulled up to the scene, he spotted a man walking away on North Washington Street. Police said the two smashed vehicles, a 2005 Chevrolet and a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr, were unoccupied. There was a large amount of blood in the driver’s seat area of the Lincoln, police said. Police followed blood spatter on the sidewalk until a neighbor alerted an officer to someone smashing glass in the area of 282 N. Washington St. Moses was spotted climbing out of a side window of the house and was trapped by a 6-foot fence, the com-

plaint said. Police said in the complaint that Moses stated he lived at the house and was there all night. He blurted out to police, “I did not drive that truck that crashed,” according to the complaint. Moses was taken to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for a blood-alcohol test and to be treated for crash injuries. Police said Moses appeared intoxicated and had difficulty speaking. Broken glass was found inside and outside the residence, and Moses’ cell phone was found near the broken window, the complaint says. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on May 11 in Central Court.



Shiowitz gets W-B board seat Surgeon will fill vacancy created by Teresa McGuire’s resignation.

Bath salts down the drain? Recent days have seen fewer police calls about the druglike substance in Wilkes-Barre.



WILKES-BARRE – Dr. Mark Shiowitz, a surgeon who has held multiple leadership and administrative roles at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, was appointed to the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board, filling a vacancy created when Teresa First reported at McGuire resigned in De4:15 cember. Shiowitz was among eight p.m. people who applied once Luzerne County Court became involved. The school board failed twice to approve a replacement for McGuire, who left the board because she was moving out of the area. Her term expires this December. In a letter accompanying his application, Shiowitz noted he is not running for any of the avail-

WILKES-BARRE – More than a week after a Luzerne County judge banned the sale of synthetic bath salts, city police Chief Gerard Dessoye said there has been a decrease of police calls involving the substances. “We have seen a marked dropped in instances,” Dessoye said Thursday. “We’ve had only one confirmed instance since the injunction went into effect.” County President Judge Thomas F. Burke Jr. on April 25 granted a permanent injunction banning the transaction of bath salts containing certain chemicals. District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll sought the injunction after several highly publicized episodes investigated by local po-

lice agencies. She noted a West Pittston couple hallucinating on bath salts endangered a young child when they used knives to stab walls believing there were 90 people living in the walls. Another incident that made headlines involved two women charged by city police with being high on bath salts while driving in a car with two children. Dessoye, whose law enforcement career has spanned 38 years, said he has never seen anyone as high on a drug as the two women. An undercover drug detective said the effects of bath salts are similar to methamphetamine and ecstasy, although bath salts are commonly called a legal alternative to cocaine. Dessoye said the injunction is a “stopgap” measure until the state Legislature and the federal government lists bath salts as a controlled substance.


Synthetic bath salts are manufactured using methylenedioxypyrovalerone, or MDPV, a powerful stimulant found in ecstasy, and mephedrone, another powerful stimulant. Bath salts sell for approximately $40 for a half-gram. Traditional bath salts used for taking a bath sell for $4 to $8 and are made with mostly Epsom salts, oils and fragrances to soften skin.

State House lawmakers unanimously passed a bill on April 4 adding chemicals used to manufacture bath salts to the controlled substance act. The state Senate has not taken any action on the bill despite pleas from district attorneys, police chiefs and elected officials to pass the measure as quickly as possible. “It certainly has the symptoms of becoming an epidemic. Once we realized what bath salts were, we were seeing lots of cases of people See SALTS, Page 4A

They had already met his criteria for the office. “I want them to be honest and fair,” said Krulack. “I want them to be knowledgeable. I want them get the job done.” In the few minutes allotted to each candidates to talk about themselves, many of them spoke about the importance of honesty and integrity, especially since Mark Ciavarella, Michael Conahan and Michael Toole stepped down from the bench after being charged in an ongoing public corruption probe. Each of the candidates chose to answer one of seven questions provided by the forum’s host. None opted to answer the question about what would cause them to recuse themselves or what constitutes a conflict of interest. Likewise none chose the question about his or her experience with the juvenile justice system. Four of them chose to answer how they are qualified to handle a variety of legal matters, such as mortgage foreclosures, assessment appeals and sentencings. Three decided to talk about what in their lives that prepared them to deal with people whose experiences are so dif-


WILKES-BARRE – There are a few things on Norm Krulack’s list of qualifications for the attorneys running for judge in Luzerne County. He heard from all 16 Thursday night and came away a little better informed about who he will vote for in the primary on May 17. “They helped me with my decision,” said Krulack after the forum held by the League of Women Voters of the Wilkes-Barre area in Snyder Hall on the campus of King’s College. He was among the nearly 100 people in the audience to hear from John Aciukewicz, Michael Blazick, Mark Bufalino, Vito DeLuca, Lesa Gelb, Jim Haggerty, Molly Hanlon Mirabito, Dick Hughes, Jim McMonagle, Fred Pierantoni, Paula Radick, Jennifer Rogers, Anthony Ross, Joe Saporito, Joe Sklarosky and Michael Vough. Most of the candidates had family and supporters in the audience.

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Police allege Brian Pillonato, of Main Street, Edwardsville, stole three MP3 players from the Rite Aid on Amber Lane on Friday. A store employee said Pillonato held up the items as he fled the store and thanked a cashier for the “free stuff,” police said. Pillonato was apprehended a short time later by state police and was in possession of the stolen merchandise, as well as other items taken in a Wilkes-Barre Township theft, police said. He was released into the custody of Wilkes-Barre Township police so they could file charges. Wilkes-Barre police said they also would file charges against Pillonato.


John Gyory discusses the county judge candidate forum held Thursday night by the League of Women Voters at Snyder Hall on the campus of King’s College.

ferent from the candidates. Just one discussed how they would prevent a recurrence of the “issues” that happened in the county court. However, eight of the 16 selected the question inquiring about their courtroom experience during the past five years handling civil and criminal cases and jury trials in state and federal courts.

John Gyory of Exeter had a hard time believing the candidates who said they spent years gaining experience in the county courtrooms didn’t see anything that signaled the former judges were corrupt. “That bothers me,” said Gyory, a professor of German at King’s College who wore a button for Aciukewicz.

Student Government President Giancarlo DiLonardo, a junior, noted he had been greeted on campus three years ago by “a pious, jovial man,” and that O’Hara not only left his mark on the physical campus but also “on the hearts and minds” of the students.

Junior Cynthia Darby, one of the leaders in the “Asante project” last month that sent more than 200 students into the community on cleanup projects, quoted from Corinthians in the Bible: “We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” She also offered the Swahili thank you, a nod to Uganda, where O’Hara once taught. O’Hara took a few minutes to praise the staff and students, noting that though he will travel for a year, he’ll be back. “There is no better place for me to be than King’s College.”

In seeking an injunction to ban the sale of bath salts, Dessoye said there were concerns that more people would take the synthetic substance. “We wanted to make aware of how serious this problem was and how serious this product is,” he said. “Our concerns were we were going to inadvertently advertise it and people were going to start using it.” Musto Carroll said she was unaware of any retailer selling bath salts since the injunction was granted.

Shiowitz politely rebukes the board for being unresponsive to letters he has written and suggestions he has made, adding, “I think that is a practice that can and should be reversed. Constructive ideas originating outside this au-

During those scandals it was revealed the board has no written hiring policy, and that board members took turns picking candidates for interviews.

Thousands of people from Illinois to Louisiana have been evacuated


Anxiety and river on rise Kristen Phillips, an Auburn student, assists in the clean-up of debris on Thursday in Pleasant Grove, Ala. A tornado left a path of total devastation as it passed through on April 27. Flooding is extreme this year in part because of drenching rain over the past two weeks.

Inquisition Jews memorialized

Balearic Islands President Francesc Antich speaks Thursday during a ceremony to honor Jews killed during the Inquisition, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. More than three centuries after 37 Jews from the Mediterranean island of Mallorca were killed during the Inquisition for secretly practicing their faith, the Balearic Islands regional president Francesc Antich issued a rare official condemnation. It was the first time that the 1691 killings have been officially criticized in Mallorca by a government figure, and Spain’s national Jewish federation said it may have been the first event of its kind for the nation.

HICKMAN, Ky. — Jail inmates filled sandbag after sandbag to protect one of the many Southern river cities threatened by the swelling Mississippi as it broke more 1930s flood records and crept higher Thursday. A flooding tributary threatened to cut off Interstate 40, a major east-west route through Arkansas, and the Army Corps of Engineers planned to blast a new breach in a Missouri levee in hopes of controlling the slow-motion disaster flowing downriver. Thousands of people from Illinois to Louisiana have already been forced from their homes, and anxiety is rising along with the river, though it could be a week or two before some of the most severe flooding hits. In Hickman, a town of about 2,500, Morrison Williamson was confident a towering floodwall would save his hard-


ware store, despite small leaks that let some flood waters spray through. Williamson was in a nearly deserted downtown, keeping his store open for customers who needed flood-fighting supplies. He said the decision to break open the Missouri

levee upstream has kept the river from topping the floodwall, saving many communities to the south. “They say blowing up the levee saved Cairo (Ill.) Well, it did. But if this breaks, you’re talking Dyersburg, Ridgely, Tiptonville, water all the way

to Memphis,” Williamson said about places in neighboring Tennessee. About 120 Fulton County jail inmate volunteers dressed in orange or white prisoner uniforms furiously filled sandbags for Hickman. They have made 120,000 since April 26. “We’re just going to keep going until they say stop,” jail Sgt. James Buckingham said. Up and down the Big Muddy, farmers braced for a repeat of the desperate strategy employed earlier this week in southeast Missouri, where Army engineers blew up the levee and sacrificed vast stretches of farmland to protect populated areas upstream. The corps had planned to blast a third and final breach in the Birds Point levee around 1 p.m. Thursday to allow water to flow back out of the flood plain into the river. “I’ve never seen it this bad,” said 78-year-old Joe Harrison, who has lived in the same house in Hickman since he was 11 months old.



Syrian crackdown continues

army said Thursday it T hehasSyrian begun withdrawing from a city

at the heart of the country’s uprising, but the regime expanded its crackdown elsewhere by deploying soldiers and arresting hundreds ahead of a new wave of anti-government protests. The siege on Daraa — the southern city where Syria’s six-week-old uprising began — lasted 11 days with President Bashar Assad unleashing tanks and snipers to crush dissent there. Syria’s state-run media said the military had “carried out its mission in detaining terrorists” and restored calm in Daraa. Still, an activist who has been giving The Associated Press updates from Daraa cast doubt on the army claim. The activist, who left Daraa early Thursday, said residents were reporting that tanks and troops were still in the city.


Two die; one missing at sea Two Ohio teenagers on a school mission trip to Costa Rica died in the Pacific Ocean when they were pulled along by an undertow current, and a third student swept out with them has not been found, officials said Thursday. The three were spending an afternoon at the beach when Wednesday’s accident occurred, according to a statement from Patriot Preparatory Academy in Columbus. They were among eight members of the junior and senior classes who were on a service trip in the central American country and were to return home Thursday, the school said. The first body recovered was that of Caity Jones. James Smith’s body was recovered Thursday, and authorities were still searching for missing student Kai Lamar, Red Cross spokesman Freddy Roman said.

Blast kills 16 at Iraq police HQ The attack happened in the mainly Shiite Muslim city of Hillah. At least 59 people were injured.

By RAHEEM SALMAN Los Angeles Times

BAGHDAD — A suicide bomber killed at least 16 people in southern Iraq on Thursday as the country braced for attacks from al-Qaida in Iraq in the aftermath of the death of Osama bin Laden. The car bomber blew up his vehicle at a police headquarters in the mainly Shiite Muslim city of Hillah before 7 a.m. as the police switched from overnight to day shift. It was the second major attack in Iraq since bin Laden was killed early Monday. The attacker in Hillah set off his explosives as officers gathered outside, according to local government officials on state television. At least 59 people were

injured. The attack immediately triggered anger toward Baghdad as local officials sought to portray the capital as ignoring their requests for more police and army. “Several times we demanded to increase the number of Iraqi police in Babil (Hillah’s province) and to move battalions from the police and army to be in some dangerous areas,” said Kahdim Toman, head of Babil’s local council. He also criticized the province’s police for not drawing up a general security plan. Other council members also blamed the national government and made clear the province had been on alert since the announcement of bin Laden’s death. “After the killing of bin Laden proactive measures were taken,” council member Haidar Ajeeli told state television, adding that 20 suspected militants had been jailed since Monday. Babil province has long been a staging ground for Sunni extremists to attack

Baghdad and Shiite areas in the south. During the country’s civil war, northern Babil province was viewed as a bastion of al-Qaida in Iraq. The group continues to take advantage of the distrust toward the Shiite-dominant national government to seek shelter in Sunni rural areas.

Deals are reached in bullying suicide

Six teenagers were charged in connection with 2010 suicide of Phoebe Prince, 15. By DENISE LAVOIE AP Legal Affairs Writer

HADLEY, Mass. — Three teenagers admitted Thursday that they participated in the bullying of a 15-year-old Massachusetts girl who later committed suicide, with one of the girl’s lawyers complaining that they had been unfairly demonized as “mean girls.” Sharon Chanon Velazquez, 17, and two 18-year-olds, Flannery Mullins and Ashley Longe, were sentenced to less than a year of probation after they admitted to sufficient facts to misdemeanor charges in the bullying of Phoebe Prince, a freshman at South Hadley High School who hanged herself in January 2010. Prosecutors said Prince, who had recently emigrated from “She was Ireland, was hounded by five frightened teens after she to go to briefly dated two boys. Her class and death drew in- was unable ternational atto focus on tention and was among several her studhigh-profile ies.” teen suicides Steven Gagne that prompted new laws aimed Assistant District Attorney at cracking down on bullying in schools. By admitting to sufficient facts, they acknowledged that prosecutors could win a conviction if the case went to trial. The charges against the girls were continued without a finding and will be dismissed if they successfully complete their probation. Under a plea deal approved by Prince’s family, prosecutors agreed to dismiss more serious charges against them. Two other teens finalized similar deals with prosecutors in court Wednesday. Attorneys for Velazquez and Mullins offered condolences to Prince’s family but said they believed the girls had been treated overly harshly by both prosecutors and the news media. Alfred Chamberland, a lawyer for Mullins, said it was not a “relentless” three-month bullying campaign, as retired District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel alleged when the teens were charged last year. In a statement he read to reporters, Chamberland said prosecutors had “overcharged” the girls and the media had unfairly portrayed them as “mean girls and bullies.” Assistant District Attorney Steven Gagne said that after hearing rumors at school that Prince had had “some sort of romantic relationship” with her boyfriend, she told at least one classmate that “someone ought to kick her ass,” referring to Prince. Gagne said Prince became fearful, skipped class and went to the school nurse several times. “She was frightened to go to class and was unable to focus on her studies,” Gagne said.

Search continues for unburied dead in Libya By BEN HUBBARD Associated Press

MISRATA, Libya — Flies flickered through flashlight beams and a foul odor filled the air as the men tromped down the stairs to a basement. Their rubber boots splashed in shin-deep putrid water as they scanned the darkness for the bodies they’d come to retrieve. “Here’s one,” someone said. Then another. And another. And another. The men are all volunteers for the particularly morbid task of combing Misrata’s war-shattered streets for the

unburied dead from two months of urban combat. Since the uprising against Moammar Gadhafi began in mid-February, Libya’s third-largest city has endured some of the country’s most violent battles. Gadhafi’s troops have surrounded the coastal city from three sides and subjected it to daily shelling. Residents-turned-rebels mobilized to fight back, pushing Gadhafi’s troops from the city center in late April. That battle and others have killed hundreds — many of whom were buried hastily or merely left where they fell.

The group has found well over 100 bodies, including 44 charred corpses in one house, said Dr. Faraj Ahmed, a veterinarian. The group’s members are not trained to deal with the dead, and no one asked them to do it. Instead, the laborers, businessmen and university students organized themselves, driven by the desire to follow the Islamic obligation to respect the dead. “In the end, we are all sons of Adam AP PHOTO and need to be treated like sons of A volunteer searches a building as Adam,” said Bashir Ibrahim. “We all part of an effort to recover and bury dead bodies in Misrata, Libya. deserve a proper burial.”

ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s army broke its silence Thursday over the U.S. commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden, acknowledging its own “shortcomings” in efforts to find the al-Qaida leader but threatening to review cooperation with Washington if there is another similar violation of Pakistani sovereignty. The tough-sounding statement was a sign of the anger in the army. It also appeared aimed at appeasing politicians, the public and the media in the country over what’s viewed by many here as a national humiliation delivered by a deeply unpopular America. While international concerns are centered on suspicions that elements of the security forces sheltered bin Laden, most Pakistanis seem more upset that uninvited American soldiers flew into the country, landed on the ground and launched an attack on a house — and that the army was unaware and unable to stop them. That it happened in an army town, next door to a military academy and close to the capital has added to the embarrassment. Ties between the two countries were already strained before the raid because of American allegations that Islamabad was failing to crack down on Afghan Taliban factions sheltering on Pakistani soil. Pakistan was angered over stepped-up U.S. drone strikes and the case of Raymond

While U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Washington would continue engaging with Pakistan, the fallout from Monday’s raid has added a new layer of tensions to a relationship that is crucial to stabilizing Afghanistan and allowing American troops to begin withdrawing this year. The U.S. needs Pakistan’s cooperation for, among other things, ferrying supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan. Washington has given the Pakistani army more than $10 billion in aid over the past decade to help it fight militants. The tone of the army statement was in sharp contrast to the

Still, this was where the terrorist inflicted his greatest damage on a similarly sunny day in 2001 when hijacked airliners were crashed into the World Trade Center. Nearly 200 other people died when a third airliner hit the Pentagon — Vice President Joe Biden led a ceremony there on Thursday, and former President George W. Bush’s Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld attended — and others were killed when yet a fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania. Enthusiastic, emotional New Yorkers waited on streets to see the president, but there were few displays like the more raucous exuberance of a few days earlier. There were happy faces, shouts of “USA! USA!” and flags waved in the crowd, but there also was heavy security and most people were cordoned off blocks from where the president could be seen. Referring to the daring U.S. raid to take down bin Laden in Pakistan, Obama said of all those who died on Sept. 11: “It says we keep them in our hearts. We haven’t forgotten.” Days after the attacks, then-President George W. Bush stood here with firefighters and a bullhorn. There was a different feel a decade later as another president paid his respects. Obama met with

initial response to the raid by the country’s civilian leaders. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had hailed the operation as a “great victory” but made no mention of any concerns over sovereignty. The army statement was issued after the country’s 12 top generals met with army chief Gen. Ashfaq Kayani, regarded as the most powerful man in the country, to discuss the operation and its implications on “military to military relations with the United States.” It said Kayani told his colleagues that a decision had been made to reduce the number of U.S. military personnel to the “minimum essential” levels. The statement gave no more details, and an army spokesman declined

to elaborate. The U.S. has about 275 declared U.S. military personnel in Pakistan at any one time, some of them helping train the Pakistani army. U.S. officials were not immediately available for comment. The army warned the United States not to launch another attack like the one that took out bin Laden. On Wednesday, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner did not rule out the possibility the U.S. would do just that. Many of the world’s most wanted militants are believed to be in Pakistan, including Ayman al-Zawahri, the man likely to succeed bin Laden, as well as leaders of the Afghan insurgency like Mullah Omar and Siraj Haqqani.

Thursday was a somber and understated event, and he avoided mentioning bin Laden by name.

Obama invited Bush to join him Thursday in New York, but the former president declined. Obama’s visit came as new details emerged of the operation on bin Laden’s Pakistan compound. Obama also addressed bin Laden’s burial at sea, saying in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that: “Frankly, we took more care on this than, obviously, bin Laden took when he killed 3,000 peo-

shooter in the Pakistan compound was killed in the early minutes of the commando operation, the latest of the details becoming clearer now that the Navy SEAL assault team has fully briefed officials. As the raiders moved into the compound from helicopters, they were fired on by bin Laden’s courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, who was in the guesthouse, the official said. The SEALs returned fire, and the courier was killed, along with a woman with him. The official said she was hit in the crossfire. The Americans were never fired on again as they encountered and killed a man on the first floor of the main building and then bin Laden’s son on a staircase, before arriving at bin La-

ple.” Such details perhaps mattered little to New Yorkers who suffered most grievously in the attacks. Ahead of Obama’s arrival, Deanne McDonald stood at the northeast corner of the World Trade Center site waving an American flag in each hand and shouting “Obama got Osama! Obama got Osama!” “God bless the Navy SEALS,” said McDonald, 38, of Brooklyn.

den’s room, the official said, revising an earlier account that the son was in the room with his father. Officials have said bin Laden was killed, shot in the chest and then the head, after he appeared to be lunging for a weapon. White House and Defense Department and CIA officials through the week have offered varying and foggy versions of the operation, though the dominant focus was on a firefight that officials said consumed most of the 40 minutes on the ground after midnight Monday morning in Pakistan, Sunday in Washington. “There were many other people who were armed ... in the compound,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday when asked if bin Laden was armed. “There was a firefight.”

Rally targets state budget cuts A regional labor federation holds a demonstration at Wilkes-Barre’s River Common.

Turbine problem keeps reactor shut By STEVE MOCARSKY

By STEFFEN LIZZA Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES BARRE -- Crowds of workers came out Thursday against proposed state budgetary cuts that opponents say threaten to devastate public education, health care and the environment. The rally, held at the River Common Amphitheater and sponsored by the NEPA Area Labor Federation, is one of many recent gatherings across the state in response to Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed 2011-2012 bud“Vouchers get. His plan would cut more will only than $400 million to public further K-12 education segregate and another $650 million to our comhigher educamunition. ties…” The plan will also cut nearly Mark McDade Riverside 1,500 state jobs Education and $150 milAssociation lion in state Medicaid funding while leasing state forestland to gas and oil rights, and increase spending on prisons by more than $180 million. The message at the rally was one of unity and stopping an attack on the middle class. Protesters held signs in support of public schools and condemnation of school voucher programs. School districts stand to lose an average of $2 million because of the proposed cuts in education. Luzerne County schools will lose a total of $22 million while schools in Lackawanna County will see $14.5 million cut. Opponents say these cuts could force districts to raise taxes or cut programs, or possibly both. Some programs that face being phased out include full-

"Seven out of 10 students who graduate from high school go on to higher education; they’re not going to be able to afford a college degree," said Glen S. Galante, president of Northeastern Region of the Pennsylvania State Education Association. Cutting education at any level will result in an increase in classroom size and a drop in the quality of education. Mark McDade, president of the Riverside Education Association, sees Senate Bill 1, the so-called Voucher Bill, as one of the most important issues that needs to be brought to the public’s attention. “Vouchers will only further segregate our communities, destroy our neighborhood schools and rob our children of a great public school education,” he said. Voucher proponents argue the bill will save taxpayers money and improve education through competition. Opponents say that vouchers could cost taxpayers an

SALEM TWP. – Reactor Unit No. 2 at the nuclear power plant near Berwick will remain shut down for an additional four to six weeks after an inspection revealed some defects in some turbine blades. PPL spokesman Joe Scopelliti said the reactor at the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station has been shut down since April 5 for its biannual inspection and the replacement of fuel rods and some other upgrades. When staff found “indications of cracks” in some of the lowpressure turbine blades, the decision was made to extend the outage and replace those blades. “The turbine blade inspection is a normal part of our outage inspection, but we didn’t expect to find defects in the blades,” Scopelliti said. Each of the two reactors at the plant heat water into steam, whichiscarriedtoturbinegenerators. Each generator has a shaft

with a high-pressure turbine on one end attached to three lowpressure turbines, the last of which is attached to the generator shaft. The blades of the turbines catch the steam and cause the shaft to spin at about 1,800 revolutions per minute, which enables the generator to create electricity. Each turbine weighs about 170 tons and has hundreds of blades. Because defects were found in a few blades, most or all will be inspected, Scopelliti said. Every two years, the plant shuts down one of the reactors for about a month to replace about 40 percent of the fuel rods and perform other modificationsandupgradesalongwithan inspection, he said. Scopelliti said PPL is also upgrading the plant’s control system to a new digital system. The work done during a biannual outage usually totals between $20 million and $30 million, he said. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, and Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, will host a U.S. Service Academy Day 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Wyoming Valley West High School, 150 Wadham St., Plymouth.

Woman pleads not guilty in death

Kathleen Jordan makes plea in homicide case in which Milo Vincent Reilly died in Pringle. By EDWARD LEWIS

WILKES-BARRE – A woman accused by Kingston police and Luzerne County detectives of killing her boyfriend pleaded not guilty to a criminal homicide charge on Thursday. Kathleen Jordan, 48, entered her not-guilty plea through her attorney, Demetrius Fannick, at

a formal arraignment before Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury. She remains jailed without bail at the county prison. A formal arraignment is when prosecutors inform the accused of the details of the charges against the defendant. In this case, Jordan was officially advised she is charged with criminal homicide. The brief hearing is also when the defendant offers a plea of guilty or not guilty. The formal arraignment also begins the discovery phase of a case, the exchanging of evi-

The couple had been in a relationship for 18 months and lived in the basement of the house, investigators said. Jordan allegedly told investigators she left the house after an argument with Reilly. She said she returned later that night and had to smash a window to unlock the door. Jordan said the argument

continued for the rest of the night. Reilly was on a bed, Jordan told investigators, when she reached into a closet and grabbed a loaded shotgun that she fired at his head, according to the affidavit of probable cause. Several months before the deadly shooting, Kingston police had charged Reilly with assaulting Jordan during a domestic dispute at the home in December. Assistant District Attorneys Chester Dudick and Rebecca Reimiller are prosecuting.

For GOP voters, here are 1 1 worthy candidates C

HOOSING THE PEOPLE who will guide Luzerne County’s government as members of its first county council shouldn’t be a haphazard exercise – the ballot box equivalent of playing darts while blindfolded. Yet you and other voters understandably might feel in the dark on primary election day, May 17, when faced with so many choices. Forty-nine candidates – 33 Democrats and 16 Republicans – are vying to be among their respective political party’s 11 picks to advance to the November general election and possibly gain a seat on the council. You probably won’t have an opportunity to meet all of them, much less pepper each with questions for a half hour. We did. At least, we did our best. An endorsement panel at The Times

Leader spoke with 46 council candidates this spring; three others either didn’t accept our invitation or were unable due to scheduling conflicts. Participants provided us with overviews of their educational and career highlights. They outlined personal qualities and skills that might be pertinent to overseeing a government with nearly 1,700 workers and an annual budget of about $125 million. And they described their viewpoints on several of the major issues: appointing a county manager, administering periodic property reassessments and coping with the county’s massive debt. Our panel evaluated the candidates based on their answers (or lack thereof), their credentials and their ability to communicate, the latter of which will be key as part of an 11-person

council charged with making decisions that impact 300,000-plus people. Then we picked the men and women best positioned to lead Luzerne County. Our endorsements of Republican Party contenders appear on this page. (Our endorsements of Democratic Party candidates will be printed in Saturday’s edition.) The panel believed it important to distinguish between the endorsed candidates by using three categories: “strongly recommended,” “recommended” and “adequate.” Chiefly, that’s because the candidates displayed wide variations in, among other things, their level of understanding of county government’s operations and scope. You might have prior knowledge of a handful of this year’s county council

candidates; you already might have decided to vote for two or three whom you consider especially well-qualified, or with whom you are friends. Or maybe you consider a few to be duds who definitely won’t get your vote. Our endorsements are intended to help you and other conscientious voters sort out the muddle in the middle: all those candidates about whom you know little or nothing. We devoted considerable hours to this process because of its importance in determining Luzerne County’s future direction. A majority of voters last November supported the home rule charter initiative and wanted to see change; this race is part of that change. If you vote by relying on name recognition alone, you could do a disservice to yourself and other county residents and taxpayers. Ditto for picking

candidates at random. Use our endorsements, continuing news coverage of the campaigns and other resources to familiarize yourself with the field. If desired, view our panel’s interviews with some or all – if you have 23 hours to spare – of the candidates. (Visit Go to candidates’ webpages and campaign events, too. Our endorsement panel can’t convey to you each candidate’s strengths, much less their opinions on every weighty topic, within a single editorial page. Or even two. But we can relay to you how we – through our prism as newspaper employees, county taxpayers and homeowners who met with the candidates individually – rank the choices. We took this task very seriously. We hope you do, too.

Zowie! Why all these candidates?


Harry Haas

Eugene Kelleher

The Wilkes-Barre resident, 35, teaches history at Dallas Middle School and serves as an instructor of a citizenship class for Luzerne County Community College in Hazleton. “I think a big component of this job,” he said, “is going to be the ability to work collegially with people.”

The Dallas Township resident, 67, is a retired mathematics teacher and formerly served on Plymouth’s borough council. “I will be prepared so that I could make logical decisions: not political decisions, but logical decisions,” he said.

William McIntosh The Dallas Township resident, 42, has worked in the public utility industry for more than 16 years in technical and management positions, most recently as an electrical engineer. “I’m fiscally conservative in my personal life, professional life and I would be so in this position, too,” he said.

Stephen J. Urban The Wilkes-Barre resident, 37, works in the information technology field. He is the son of current Luzerne County Commissioner Stephen A. Urban. “I believe in limited government,” he said. “If government doesn’t have to be involved, then they shouldn’t be involved.”


Luzerne County voters in November adopted a new, home-rule form of government. Instead of three commissioners, the county will be guided beginning in January 2012 by a Luzerne County Council consisting of 11 people. The contest to determine those council members has, so far, attracted a whopping 49 candidates. The top 11 Republican vote-getters in this month’s primary election will face off in the fall against the top 11 Democratic contenders, plus an as-yet unknown number of independent candidates.

Moderno “Butch” Rossi

The Exeter Township resident, 66, owned an electrical contracting business and currently owns and trains racehorses. “I would want to work my butt off in every way possible, (examine) every opening, before I’d want taxes raised another iota.”

The Sugarloaf Township resident, 39, works as a customer specialist in the biopharmaceutical industry and started a sleep and wellness center. He served on both the Luzerne County Government Study Commission and the subsequent Home Rule Transition Committee.

The Lehman Township resident, 55, is the purchasing and inventory coordinator for the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority and has served for 12 years on the Lake-Lehman School Board. “I feel my strengths are leadership, and I treat everyone the same.”

John Ruckno The Dallas resident, 62, retired from his job as a Mellon Bank investment professional. He is the former president of Forty Fort Lumber Co. “I thought I could bring something to the table,” he said. “I have some business acumen … and I have no political agenda.”


These five Republican candidates didn’t win our endorsement panel’s support but they did earn our respect merely for running: Joyce Dombroski-Gebhardt, Blythe H. Evans III, Joseph A. Gorko, Gina Nevenglosky (not interviewed by our panel) and Linda J. Urban. All demonstrated real desire to help Luzerne County thrive.

Group wants stronger limits on drilling PennEnvironment has found Marcellus Shale sites near day cares, schools and hospitals. By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Policymakers in Pennsylvania should immediately strengthen rules that make sensitive ecosystems, areas around water sources and places where people live or work off limits to natural gas drilling, an environmental group said Thursday. The message comes as drilling in Marcellus Shale natural gas wells intensifies. Philadelphia-based PennEnvironment said it has found permitted Marcellus Shale sites within two miles of numerous day cares, schools and hospitals in Pennsylvania. It also said there are hundreds of instances of environmental violations flagged by state regulators at Marcellus Shale drilling sites within two miles of schools or day cares.

1974. The city also was awarded a grant of more than $2 million it applied for on behalf of Wilkes University, which will partially fund the construction of a new science building on campus. Mayor Tom Leighton said work, funded by a previous gambling-revenue grant of $600,000, has already begun at the former bank, and that the new grant will be used to complete “mothballing” of the building, or making repairs to preserve structural integrity and prevent further degradation. Once repairs are completed, the building, which was purchased by the city for $225,000 in 2005, will be more attractive to investors currently interested in the property but holding back because of the cost repairing the bank, he said. “It’s a structurally sound building that has great potential use,

State law provides for a buffer of 200 feet between a drilling site and buildings and private water wells, as well as a 100foot buffer around many waterways and wetlands. Several bills awaiting action in the GOP-controlled Legislature would increase those buffers. One, introduced by state Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, would increase existing buffers to 1,000 feet. However, a company would be able to get permission to drill within that buffer if, for instance, it secured an owner’s permission or took extra precautions that satisfy state regulators. A bill introduced by state Sen. Gene Yaw, R-Lycoming, would increase the existing buffer around water wells and buildings to 500 feet. It would leave intact the 100-foot buffer around waterways and wetlands, but allow state regulators to impose a 500foot buffer around them for the storage of hazardous chemicals

or materials. Last year, House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee Chairman Bud George, DClearfield, introduced a bill that would have established a 1,000foot buffer around buildings and water wells. It also would have established a 2,500-foot buffer around surface-water sources and a 1,000-foot buffer around groundwater sources for a driller that uses hydraulic fracturing or horizontal drilling. That bill died without action in the Democratic-controlled House. He reintroduced it this year. For decades, energy companies have drilled shallow oil and gas wells in Pennsylvania. However, in the last three years, fresh environmental concerns have arisen with the influx of energy companies using high volumes of chemical-laced water in a process known as hydraulic fracturing to drill lucrative and deep Marcellus Shale wells. They also use the recent innovation of horizontal drilling underground to increase a well’s production.

and this is the first step in moving forward,” Leighton said. The mayor said the building’s design, character and structural integrity would make it attractive to a number of businesses, adding “we’ll do our due diligence to make sure we have something in there conducive to the revitalization of the downtown.”

Wilkes President Tim Gilmour called the grant funding “crucial” to the project and said the building “will ensure Wilkes has the leading-edge facilities needed to train the best scientists, doctors, engineers and researchers to compete in today’s global economy.” Across the river, Kingston was awarded $1 million to purchase vehicles and equipment and to revitalize a vacant strip mall on Third Avenue. Kingston Manager Paul Keating said the municipality applied for $2.5 million in funding; $2 million for the Jewish Community Center project and $500,000 for two dump trucks, two police vehicles and a truck-mounted vacuum sweeper. He said he did not know how the grant funding would be divided, but said he and Mayor Jim Haggerty are “really excited about the funding, and we feel that it’s a good day for Kingston.” According to Keating, the Jewish Community Center of Wyoming Valley plans to move into the Kingston Plaza shopping center,

Science building The grant to Wilkes University will be put toward construction of a new $35 million, 70,000-squarefoot science building on South River Street between Stark Learning Center and Conyngham Hall. The building, to be designed by Saylor Gregg Architects, will house the biology, chemistry and earth sciences departments as well as the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research of Northeast Pennsylvania, which studies the impact of Marcellus Shale drilling in the region. The university plans to break ground on the project by fall, and expects to begin occupying the building by the spring of 2013.

Pasonick did not return a phone message Thursday regarding the reasoning for the corporate restructuring. His association with Pasonick & Associates is known to have negatively impacted the business in at least one contract, however.

JCC Director Rick Evans referred questions about the project to members of the center’s board, who did not return a request for comment by deadline Thursday. Ten other projects Other projects receiving casino-revenue funding for the first time are: • $1.48 million for the downtown Pittston redevelopment project. The grant will fund the acquisition and demolition of 12 parcels to make way for a new commercial building housing medical and health care professionals with a public parking lot, as well as façade and exterior renovation work to existing buildings. • $898,000 for streetscape improvements and a parking lot expansion in Plymouth.

Maguire and Bonner each pleaded guilty to charges related to that case, but Pasonick was not charged. Pasonick’s firms have done work for numerous municipalities, school districts and Luzerne County over the years. The county paid Pasonick’s firms nearly $505,000 from 2004 to April 2011, but has no current contracts with Pasonick, according to the controller’s office. County Commissioner Stephen Urban said he would oppose awarding any future contracts to Pasonick companies based on the charges. “The allegations are he got business by bribing someone. That is not a proper course of conduct,” Urban said. “I don’t want a company of that caliber working for the county.” Officials from several local municipalities said they see no reason to stop us-

Council President Richard Murawski said Thursday he does not believe the charges against Michael Pasonick should impact the borough’s dealings with the firm. “Personally, I’ve been involved with the company for 20 years. I never had any problem. When we request they do something, they do it in a professional and timely manner,” Murawski said. Plans to retain Pasonick’s firm Nanticoke City Administrator Holly Sirko said she also does not see any reason to stop using Pasonick’s firm. “We employ the firm as the city’s engineer. He is not a principal in the firm anymore,” Sirko said. “We don’t plan to make a change any time soon.” John Bonita, business manager for Pittston Township, echoed that senti-

Pasonick was hired as engineer at the township’s reorganization meeting in January. “It’s not going to matter to us at this point,” Bonita said. “He is good till the end of the year.” Pasonick has been a licensed engineer since 1970. It is not known yet what, if any, impact the criminal charges will have on his license. Ron Ruman, spokesman for the state Department of State, said he could not comment specifically about Pasonick. Speaking generally, he said the department would investigate should it obtain information that any licensed professional had been charged with a crime. “If we become aware of a criminal investigation, we can gather information for our own investigation and take appropriate action,” Ruman said. “That could be anything from a fine to a revocation of a license, depending on what we find.”

Collins trying to clear his mind By TOM VENESKY

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – It’s a play that Chris Collins knows he can’t take back. While attempting to clear the puck during a Charlotte power play early in the third period on Wednesday, the WilkesBarre/Scranton Penguins winger was slashed on his wrist. “It was a stinger and I went down,” Collins said. While he was on the ice, the player that Collins was covering – Chris Terry, skated in from the point and wristed home the game-winning goal. The Penguins ended up losing Game 4, 1-0, and fell behind in the series 3-1.

Don’t know if Uncle Mo is set to go

Talented but ailing colt may or may not recover from stomach troubles in time to run in Saturday’s Derby. By BETH HARRIS AP Racing Writer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — To go or not to go. Uncle Mo’s connections still weren’t saying whether the talented colt will run in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby. The sleek bay colt was recovering from a stomach ailment, but looked good as he galloped over the Churchill Downs track on Thursday, though appearances could be deceiving. Uncle Mo looks about as exotic as his name — average size, with no distinguishing marks like the white splash on Zenyatta’s forehead. But his power is apparent as soon as he starts running. Last year’s juvenile champion, Uncle Mo is the 9-2 second choice behind 4-1 See UNCLE MO, Page 6B

Victory moves Redeemer closer to title

By TOM ROBINSON Special to the Times Leader

DALEVILLE – The Holy Redeemer boys volleyball team is accustomed to trading regular-season wins with North Pocono. The defending champion Royals stopped the give-and-take with the Trojans Thursday night and, in the process, moved closer to a second straight Wyoming Valley Conference championship. “It’s a big win,” Holy Redeemer coach Jack Kablick said after the 3-1 victory in the meeting of the conference’s last two unbeatens. “It has broken a trend. “The last eight years, the home team

It was four years of winning at our REDEEMER place and four years of them winning at theirs.” North Pocono also NORTH managed a league playPOCONO off victory over Holy Redeemer in 2008 in the middle of a streak of three straight conference titles before the Royals broke through last season.

losing teams and the others against Abington Heights and Tunkhannock, for a second straight unbeaten WVC season. If Holy Redeemer does not slip, North Pocono (11-1) will be stuck settling for trying for its fifth straight District 2 Class AA championship. “We were looking at this entire week: Coughlin Monday and North Pocono Thursday,” said 6-foot-11 senior Pete Alexis, who led the way with 24 kills, along with five service points. “When you looked at it, everything about the season built up to these two matches.”


Royals take control

MOOSIC – Scranton/Wilkes-Barre pitcher Andrew Brackman has had his troubles in the first inning of games this season. Entering Thursday’s game versus Pawtucket at PNC Field, the righthander allowed 11 of his 15 runs this season in the RED SOX first. Add three more runs to that total. Brackman gave up YANKEES three more runs in the first inning and the Yankees couldn’t climb out of the early hole, losing to the Red Sox 4-1 and snapping a two-game win streak. In addition to those three runs, Brackman gave up three hits and two


BOSTON — Any resemblance to last year is nothing more than a mocking coincidence. Let us begin there, as the Flyers again contemplate history. Twelve months ago, they fell into an 0-3 hole against the Bruins in the second round of the playoffs; same time, next year. And while they do not award style points in the NHL, especially not in the springtime, the reality is that the Flyers played very well in those three losses in 2010. By comparison, they have been thrashed in two of the three losses in 2011. Wednesday night’s loss was a deserved 5-1. The identity of the more complete team is not currently in doubt. The probability that the Flyers could pull off another miraculous comeback, playing at their current level, is approaching nil — which is why they call them miracles, after all. “I think it does get tiring,” defenseman Sean O’Donnell said, when asked about this team’s ridiculous penchant for falling behind in games and series. “But we have no one to blame but ourselves.” We will talk a lot about goaltending, because that is what we do. And, yes, Brian Boucher was pulled Wednesday night at 15:14 of the second period — the sixth time in 10 playoff games that the Flyers’ starter was taken out of the game. It is worth a long discussion, clearly. But the only howler Boucher allowed was the last one, when the score was already 3-0 and the Bruins were wringing the life out of the game, and the Flyers, with their neutral-zone trap. They lost this one long before Nathan Horton shot the puck through Boucher’s legs and forced Flyers coach Peter Laviolette to go to his bullpen, again. As O’Donnell said, “We really threw Boosh under the bus, unfortunately.” The only reason the Flyers struggled to beat Buffalo in seven games in the opening round was their goaltending. But this situation, in this series, is much more complicated than that. The Bruins, top to bottom, appear to be the sturdier and more persistent team. A Flyers team with scoring on three lines and more capable defensemen than most teams has begun to wilt. The burden of coming from behind, again and again, has worn them down. Defenseman Kimmo Timonen talked about how “it felt like we were skating in sand.” He said, “We looked tired today, somehow.” The Bruins really had their hitting shoes on, despite a stat sheet that awarded the Flyers 31 hits to the Bruins’ 24. The Flyers have begun to wear, to fray. Maybe they do miss defenseman Chris Pronger that much; another topic worthy of discussion. Pronger, with his mysterious series of undisclosed ailments, has played in only three games in the playoffs. They are 2-1 with him and 2-5 without him. Again, this is something that will be picked over at length, one would assume, after the season is over. But it seems like more than that. It isn’t just the goalie. It isn’t just Pronger. It is the exhaustion, physical and mental, from all of the digging out of holes that they do. The Flyers came out in the first period and had nothing.





FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2011


As day number 27 of the young 2011 harness racing season is here, let’s take a quick look at the leading drivers and trainers. Topping the driver standings is young Matt Kakaley. The 23-yearold has made quite an impact in his second full season of driving at the Downs. He’s the meet’s leading driver in wins, at 38; and also earnings, with $399,890. Tyler Buter sits second, in his first season at Pocono, with a win total of 29. Carmine Fusco and Lou Pena. sit atop the trainer standings with 19 wins each. Fusco has been a top trainer for years at the Plains Township oval and is no surprise to be on top. Pena has done it with just a limited amount of starters, and is winning at an amazing 40 percent clip.

Damon gets No. 2,600 as Rays defeat Blue Jays The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — David Price allowed one unearned run while pitching into the ninth inning, Johnny Damon got his 2,600th career hit and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Thursday. Price (4-3) is undefeated against the Blue Jays, winning eight times in nine starts. The left-hander allowed four hits and struck out 10 over 8 2-3 innings. Damon had two hits, which moved him past Steve Garvey (2,599) into 75th place on the career list. His fifth-inning double (490) tied him for 59th place with Mickey Vernon on that list. The Rays won their 12th consecutive home series over Toronto, since 2007. John Jaso had an RBI double, Damon drove in a run with an infield single and Matt Joyce hit a sacrifice fly off Kyle Drabek (2-2) to put the Rays ahead 3-0 in the third. Royals 9, Orioles 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Melky Cabrera homered, doubled and singled while driving in four runs, and Bruce Chen allowed one run in seven innings. Cabrera, who also scored three times, hit a solo homer in the eighth off Clay Rapada. Chen (4-1) gave up his only run in the first and then pitched shutout ball for the next six innings. The left-hander, who was KC’s biggest winner last year, allowed five hits and one run, walking two and striking out five. He has not lost a start in Kauffman Stadium since Aug. 12, 2010, against the Yankees. Since then, he’s 6-0 in nine starts at home. Chris Tillman (1-3) got almost no offensive support. In his last six starts, the Orioles have scored only five runs while he was in the game. Tigers 6, Yankees 3

His replacement, Eduardo Nunez, made two errors, including a high throw in the seventh that gave the Tigers two runs. Rick Porcello (2-2) allowed two runs on eight hits for the Tigers. He walked two and struck out three. A.J. Burnett (4-2) held Detroit hitless until the sixth inning but made an error of his own that led to Detroit’s run in the first. He allowed five runs — only two earned — on three hits, striking out five with one walk. Angels 11, Red Sox 0

BOSTON — Rookie Mark Trumbo hit his sixth homer of the season and the Los Angeles Angels salvaged a series split at Boston, racking up 18 hits.

Bobby Abreu drove in three runs for Los Angeles, which was 0-6 against Boston entering the four-game series. After ending the skid in a rain-delayed 5-3 win in 13 innings early Thursday, the Angels chased Boston starter John Lackey (2-4) in the fifth after scoring eight runs on 10 hits. Indians 4, Athletics 3

OAKLAND, Calif. — Jack Hannahan and Lou Marson had RBI singles in the 12th inning, lifting the Indians to the victory. Hannahan’s bloop single to left off Craig Breslow (0-2) provided the go-ahead run, and Marson followed with another single to propel Cleveland to another late-inning rally. A night after their seven-game winning streak was snapped, the Indians won in their final at-bat for the seventh time this season.


PHILADELPHIA — Roy Halladay struck out 10 in seven sharp innings, Raul Ibanez and Shane Victorino homered, and the Philadelphia Phillies completed a three-game sweep with a 7-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night. Halladay, the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner, allowed two runs and six hits to win his 10th straight decision against the franchise from Washington and Montreal. Halladay (5-1) has won 13 consecutive starts against the NL East. John Lannan (2-4) got roughed up, allowing seven hits and six runs in two-plus innings to fall to 0-10 against the Phillies.







Oswalt returns to Phillies

PHILADELPHIA — While his teammates played baseball, Roy Oswalt spent the past week riding an excavator and moving fallen trees off the property at his Mississippi home after tornadoes ravaged the community. Oswalt was back with the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday, eight days after he left the team to be with his family in Weir, Miss. He threw a bullpen session and could start against Atlanta on Saturday. But pitching is hardly first on his mind these days. “I’ve always said this right here, baseball, is a gift that you’re given to ply, but this comes third or fourth on my list,” Oswalt said. “I could walk away from the game today and be happy. As long as you have your family, they’re going to be there a lot longer than the game.”

“It’s a big win. It has broken a trend.” Jack Kablick Holy Redeemer coach

Continued from Page 1B

Holy Redeemer dominated much of the first game, winning a series of battles at the net to score 14 of 16 points while opening a 20-7 lead. “That was a great start,” said Rob Wingert, who put together a strong all-around match with 39 assists, 14 service points, six kills and four blocks. “We kind of asserted that we were going to own net. “That went away for a while but we got it back.” North Pocono opened leads of 4-0 and 9-4 in Game Two. Holy Redeemer rallied to tie three times before taking its first lead of the game, 19-18, during a streak of four straight

service points by Dylan Myslowski. Myslowski, who finished with 16 service points, including two aces, played a prominent role in the Royals winning the first two games. He served six straight points for a 13-5 lead in Game One and had four more to help force the first tie of Game Two at 9-9. Wingert’s powerful jump serves and Myslowski’s finesse helped the Royals turn the momentum with their extended streaks holding serve. “We try to mix the serves,” Kablick said. “We mix a couple of guys with jump serves with guys with float serves.

“Dylan’s serve comes at you like a knuckleball and just three or four inches above the tape. It can be really tough to handle.” The Royals showed the ability to start and finish. Alexis twice had kills that prevented North Pocono from closing out Game Two when it led, 24-23 and 26-25. Holy Redeemer set up Alexis for three attempts at the decisive kill at the end of Game Four. The Trojans defended two and dug one out, only to send it right back to Alexis, for the match-ending kill. “That just felt great,” Alexis said. Dan Kopicki had 11 kills, two

Everything going right in for Haas

Maryland’s Williams announces retirement

The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Of all the times Bill Haas has played Quail Hollow, he never had a round quite like this. Haas had stress-free birdies on all the par 5s and did little wrong on the rest of the holes Thursday in the Wells Fargo Championship, matching the tournament record for lowest opening round with an 8-under 64 for a two-shot lead. “I’ve got good feelings around this place,” Haas said. It was his best score by four shots at Quail Hollow on the PGA Tour, and way better than two dozen rounds he played as a kid when he would tag along with his father, Jay Haas, on the special trips they made to the course. Haas had a two-shot lead over David Toms and Jonathan Byrd, who each had a 66 in the morning when it was barely above 40 degrees at the start of the tournament with a north wind that is uncommon for this tournament. Ultimately, the afternoon turned out to be perfect — much like Haas and his round. He did have a few key par saves, such as the 10-foot putt he made at the turn on the 18th hole. The key for Haas, though, was getting off to a good start on the slightly tougher back nine, and knowing he could afford to make a few mistakes. Defending champion Rory McIlroy made some errors early, and he never quite caught up. In his first trip back to America after his Sunday collapse in the Masters, the 22year-old from Northern Ireland opened with a 75. “The story of the day for me is I really didn’t hit it very well, which is unlike me,” McIlroy said. “It’d be the strength of my game and today I just wasn’t striking it well. My timing was

off just a little bit.” Pat Perez and Lucas Glover were at 67, while Rickie Fowler overcame a rugged start — two bogeys on his opening three holes — to lead a group at 68 that included Vijay Singh and Stuart Appleby. Phil Mickelson, in his first event since the Masters, hit two balls in the water on par 5s and scrambled for par each time. The first one was critical. He already was 1 over for the tournament through six holes when he came out of the pine straw and into the pond at No. 7. He holed a 12-foot par putt, then made birdie on the next four holes. He wound up with a 69, along with Padraig Harrington. “I hadn’t played in a few weeks, and to shoot under par was a good start,” Mickelson said. “It could have been a lot better, could have been a lot worse. I’ll certainly take it.” The cold air made Quail Hollow play even longer in the morning, and it was particularly tough on the guys who don’t blast it. Toms fits into that category, which explains why he had to hit fairway metals for his second shot on three par 4s. The good news is he made par on all of them, and threw in seven birdies for a 66. “It was cold this morning, and we were all out there with our jackets and sweaters on and playing these long par 4s,” Toms said. “If I can shoot 3 under on the front nine, as long as it played, I’ll take that any day.” Toms won the first edition of this tournament in 2003. Byrd rarely plays well here. Except for a tie for fifth a few years ago, he missed the cut in his other five appearances. He almost thought about skipping the Wells Fargo Championship,

except that it’s close to his South Carolina roots. “It’s pretty odd,” said Byrd, who opened the year with a playoff win at Kapalua. “If it wasn’t close to home, I might start saying, ‘I just don’t play well there, I need to go home.’ But my family is close to home here in Columbia, South Carolina, and it’s not far from Clemson.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — After sweating through crisp white shirts and expensive suits for more than three decades, Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams is finally ready to take it easy. Williams announced his retirement Thursday, saying “it’s the right time” for him to end a career in which he led his alma mater to the 2002 national championship. Williams coached for 33 years, the last 22 at Maryland, where he played as a guard from 1964-67. “My entire career has been an unbelievable blessing. I am fiercely proud of the program we have built here,” Williams said. “I couldn’t have asked any more from my players, my assistant coaches, the great Maryland fans and this great university. Together, we did something very special here.” His career record is 668-380, including 461-252 at Maryland. Under his direction, the Terrapins went to the NCAA tournament 14 times, won or shared three Atlantic Coast Conference titles and reached the Final Four twice. Williams was a fiery competitor who despised losing and loved the challenge of competing against the best teams in the nation — including Duke, which usually got the best of him. But the Terrapins never went down without a fight, and rarely did Williams ever take a seat on the bench. His frenzied style, and his propensity to sweat on the sideline more than his players, was as much a part of his legend as wins and losses. “I love Gary. What he has done for Maryland and for college basketball is remarkable,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “He is one of the great coaches of all time. He is a coaches’ coach and an ultimate competitor. His retirement is a big loss for the ACC

and for college basketball.” Williams, 66, arrived at Maryland in 1989, when the program was still struggling unWilliams der the weight of NCAA violations. The Terps endured two straight losing seasons before reaching the NCAA tournament for the first time under his direction in 1994, and he never had another sub-.500 season the rest of the way. “Gary Williams is a legend,” Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said. “His accomplishments on the court have earned him a place among the elite in college basketball history. But Gary’s legacy here at Maryland goes far beyond basketball. From his philanthropic efforts to his tireless work with fans and alumni to his impact with our students, Gary has left an indelible mark of excellence on this university.” Since 2004, Williams has served as the scholarship cochair for Great Expectations, Maryland’s $1 billion fundraising campaign. His efforts on behalf of Maryland students have helped raise over $240 million for scholarships at the school. The retirement announcement comes one season after the Terrapins endured a 19-14 record and missed both the NCAA tournament and the NIT. Also, on Wednesday, standout center Jordan Williams formally entered the NBA draft with two years of eligibility left. Williams began his college coaching career at American University in 1978. He went to Boston College in 1982 and then spent three seasons at Ohio State, from 1986-89, before coming to Maryland. He had a chilly relationship with Debbie Yow, who served as Maryland’s AD from 1994-2010.

Atlanta is eyeing upset like a Hawk

strength on Wednesday night. Lerg had a goal and an assist in four games during the first round of the Calder Cup playoffs and, considering the Penguins have only scored six goals through four games against Charlotte, Hynes was happy to get his skilled winger back into the lineup for a regular shift. “He’s an impact player for us,” Hynes said. “He adds a dynamic to our lineup that we need.” After trying to give it a go in Games 2 and 3, Lerg was relieved to be able to play a regular shift in Game 4. He said it was a frustrating experience not being able to play at 100 percent. “It was (frustrating) not really knowing how I’m going to feel,” Lerg said. “It was just too hard to predict until you got on the ice.” Boiling point The Penguins will try to become the third team in the AHL this postseason to win a series after being down 3-1. Since 1946, a team that was down 3-1 has come back to win the series just 17 times in the AHL postseason. There were several times in Game 4 that the Penguins were within inches of taking a 1-0 lead, and the fact that they were so close has kept them confident heading into Game 5 tonight. Hynes said he may tweak a few things in the Penguins’ game, but for the most part they are going to stay the course. “It’s like when you try to boil water. It’s at 211 (degrees) and one more degree… it gets to 212 and starts to boil. That’s where we’re at,” Hynes said. “Last night we were at 211 and we’re looking to get to 212.” Finding the back of the net The Penguins power play is 2for-23 in four games against Charlotte, but hasn’t scored in its last 16 chances. The Penguins have generated plenty of decent chances with the man advantage, however, and Lerg said they aren’t panicking. “We’re moving the puck around pretty good. It’s just a matter of time,” he said. “We have to find the back of the net. The season’s on the line.” The Penguins have been struggling to score goals throughout the playoffs, averaging less than two goals per game. Charlotte goaltender Mike Murphy has allowed only five goals in four games against the Penguins (Brad Thiessen has allowed six). “We’ve been struggling a little bit all playoffs to score goals, but guys are getting chances and that’s the important thing,” Collins said. “We’ve been an inch or two away from scoring a couple goals. The chances we did get came when we got pucks to the blue paint and traffic in front. We can do a little better job of creating screens and not letting Murphy see the first shot. That’s going to be one of our keys (for Game 5).”


Canucks grab 3-1 series lead NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ryan Kesler broke a tie with a power-play goal at 7:28 of the third period, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Thursday night to take a 3-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series. Christian Ehrhoff scored a power-play goal and had two assists, Kesler also had two assists, and Alexander Edler had a goal. Henrik Sedin notched his first points in the series with two assists and an empty-net goal with 20.6 seconds left.

walks as the PawSox sent eight batters to the plate. Hector Luna singled to drive in a run in the frame and Nate Spears drove in two with a single as Pawtucket opened a 3-0 lead. Brackman (2-1) only lasted four innings giving up six hits and walking five. “I really have no clue what it is. I just have to go out and find a way to get out of it and battle through it,” said Brackman, who noted that he felt good in the bullpen before the game. “Obviously something changes when a batter steps in the box and I need to figure out a way to just keep it like it is in the bullpen.” While Brackman – who has only given up three runs in19 innings other than the first of the game – was struggling, PawSox starter Matt Fox (3-2) was on target. He faced the minimum number of hitters until Brandon Laird doubled with two outs in the fourth for the first hit of the game for SWB. The only other baserunner for the Yankees against Fox was Chris Dickerson’s walk in the first, but he was picked off. Pawtucket opened up a 4-0 lead in the sixth after Daniel Nava led off with a triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by Josh Reddick. “You got to find a way to overNOTES: The PawSox had at come that (deficit),” Yankees manager Dave Miley said. “It’s least one hit in every inning…A not a deficit you can’t over- pair of Notre Dame alums will pitch today with Pawtucket’s come, but…”

early favorite Dialed In. Owner Mike Repole anxiously awaited results from the latest vet exam, and promised to end the drama by announcing a decision Friday. “If he’s not what we deem to be 100 percent tomorrow, he’s not going to be 100 percent on Saturday,” he said. Repole said he won’t sacrifice Uncle Mo’s health to satisfy his 30-year dream of having a horse in America’s greatest race. Either way, he won’t be shut out. He has Stay Thirsty in the full field of 20 horses. Still, the fast-talking Queens native, who got rich selling his Vitaminwater company to CocaCola, doesn’t want to leave his best horse in the barn. “It’s tough,” he said. “Racing needs superstars and if he’s 100 percent, Uncle Mo could be that superstar.” He sure looked it after winning

But it was as if coach Craig Berube, and Laviothey expended everything on that big punch.

last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on the same Churchill Downs track and taking a perfect record into the Wood Memorial. There, Uncle Mo led the field with a quarter-mile to go, but two horses passed him and he finished third by a length. Afterward, Uncle Mo’s appetite fell off and raised suspicions. An exam turned up the stomach problem. Outwardly, Uncle Mo looks as healthy as, well, a horse. Internally, no one’s sure exactly what’s going on. That’s the quandary. Uncle Mo could be fine. Or Repole and trainer Todd Pletcher could be risking a repeat of the Wood Memorial. “If he runs and he runs seventh, Todd and I will look at each other and guess he wasn’t 100 percent,” Repole said. “If he runs and he wins by seven lengths, we can look at each other and say ‘Wow, we’re geniuses.”’ Count three-time Derby winner Bob Baffert among those who discount Uncle Mo’s bellyache. “From what I’ve seen visually, there’s nothing there that tells seemed to keep the Flyers from skating at all. Oh, and they won a ridiculous 43 out of 55 faceoffs in the game, 78 percent. It is impossible to look good as a team when you lose that many, when you are always chasing just to try to regain possession. For the Flyers, there were none of the breathtaking rushes in transition that marked Game 2. From the middle of the second period on, there was little doubt who was going to win the game — especially when you add in the fact that Tim

me the horse isn’t ready to run,” the trainer of Midnight Interlude said. “He’s a good horse, I’m not believing that crap.” Pletcher wasn’t talking Thursday. But he’s said Uncle Mo responded well to treatment and his appetite has returned. Repole said he’s gone off much of his medication. “We got to listen to what Uncle Mo is telling us,” Repole said, “and he’s telling us he’s getting better. He’s telling us he’s progressing. “If the three vets say,‘yes’ and Todd says,‘no,’ the answer is ‘no,’ ” he added. It’s not as easy or obvious a call aslastyear,whenPletcher’scan’tmiss horse, Eskendereya, dropped out at the start of Derby week with a career-ending leg injury. Or in 2009, when Derby favorite I Want Revenge was scratched on the morning of the race with a bad ankle. “I’ve seen this movie. Everyone else has seen this movie,” Repole said. “It’s a horrible movie and I don’t want to play a major role in it, either.” Thomas is a better-than-prettygood goaltender. Little doubt. And now — and with all due respect to what the Flyers accomplished in 2010 — it would appear to be all over but the cliches. As forward Danny Briere said, “We have to take it one game at a time, try to win one game ... We’re not going to win four games on Friday.” All true enough. But it really isn’t like last year. Rich Hofmann is a columnist for Philadelphia Daily News.

ATLANTA — Larry Drew likes the look of these playoffs. He’s feeling pretty good about his own team, too. There are upsets all around in the NBA postseason. Top-seeded San Antonio has already been eliminated. The defending champion Los Angeles Lakers are in trouble. And Drew, the rookie coach of the Atlanta Hawks, sees no reason why his own team can’t go farther than anyone would’ve expected. “This thing is wide open,” he said Thursday. The Hawks have already knocked out Dwight Howard and Orlando, a team that swept Atlanta from the playoffs in lopsided fashion a year ago. They’re trying to follow a similar script in the Eastern Conference semifinals, having stolen a victory in Game 1 against the Chicago Bulls, a 62-win juggernaut during the regular season. Even coming off a series-tying loss, the Hawks are exuding confidence as they return home for the next two contests. Game 3 is Friday, which shapes up as the most significant night in 14 years for a franchise that has largely been an NBA wasteland. “We feel good about where we’re at,” said Jamal Crawford, the Hawks’ super sub. “We feel like we took their best punch.” Chicago, of course, would prefer to follow the script. The Bulls won 18 more games than Atlanta during the regular season and are in no mood to be the fodder for another playoff upset. After a shocking 103-95 defeat in the series opener, Chicago played with a sense of desperation Thursday night. The Bulls dominated the boards 58-39, turned the Hawks’ offense into a stagnant mess (34 percent shooting), hustled for seemingly every

loose ball and pulled away for an 86-73 victory. “We can always step it up. You can always improve in each game,” league MVP Derrick Rose said. “But we’ve got to continue to make hustle plays because it’s just going to get harder.” Indeed, the Hawks actually took some comfort from the way they lost. Despite the obvious deficiencies, Atlanta was still in the game with about 4 minutes left, trailing by six and poised to pull off another upset. It didn’t work out, but the Hawks know they can stick with a team that put up the best record in the league. “Whatever doubt might have been seeping into our guys’ heads, that doubt was erased after Game 1,” Drew said. “Even though we lost Game 2, there wasn’t a knockout blow. There was all this talk about how they would come out with all this energy and everything. Well, we didn’t feel that. ... They didn’t put us away.” At the end, they did. Now it’s back to Atlanta to play in front of what figures to be a raucous sellout crown, an anomaly in this attendance-challenged city. This is the most important home playoff game for the Hawks since 1997, when they also were tied 1-1 in a second-round series against the Michael Jordan-led Bulls. That one didn’t work out so well for Atlanta. The Bulls won Game 3 — and the next two, as well — to knock out the Hawks on the way to Jordan’s fifth of six titles.

Toughness a trademark for female rider LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Rosie Napravnik learned to ride horses before she could walk. Even so, being the first female jockey to win the Kentucky Derby was not her driving ambition. “I was determined to be the youngest jockey ever to win the Triple Crown, not just the first female,” she said not too long ago. “But that was supposed to happen when I was 16.” It didn’t, of course, since Napravnik turned 23 in February and just picked up her first Triple Crown-caliber mount, a dark bay colt named Pants On Fire. For all the progress the sport has made, his name suggests what most of the men who still control the thoroughbred racket would have to experience before turning over several million dollars worth of horseflesh to a woman rider. “It still is a man’s world,” Napravnik said. “You still get that just about every day: ’I don’t want to ride a girl. The owner doesn’t want to ride a girl. You’re not as strong, you’re not as this, you’re not as that.’ “It’s probably not nearly what it used to be,” she added, “but it’s still out there.” Diane Crump was the first woman to ride in both a parimutuel race — in 1969, at Hialeah Park, where she needed a police escort to get in — and the Kentucky Derby the following year.

OPINION JIM LITKE Since then, only four of her fellow travelers, including Julie Krone, the most successful, best known and only female rider in the Hall of Fame, have been up in the saddle on the first Saturday in May. The last was Rosemary Homeister Jr., in 2003. None has finished higher than 11th. That should have changed two years ago, when 50-to-1shot Mine That Bird charged up the rail to steal the Derby. Chantal Sutherland had been his regular rider, lost him for two races during a change of trainers, then showed up at Churchill Downs three days before the race with a promise from one of the owners she would get the mount for the big race. It went to veteran Calvin Borel instead. “I found out about it from reading the Racing Form,” Sutherland said in a phone interview Thursday. “I never learned the reason. If somebody had said, ’We need a jockey with experience; he’s already won it,’ I would have said fair enough. “But generally, I’ve been lucky,” she added. “There’s still the odd person out there who says, ’I won’t use her because she’s a girl,’

though they usually couch it some other way, like ’she goes too wide in the turns, or doesn’t know how to switch the stick.”’ Napravnikisn’tlikelytogetthat dreaded last-minute call, in no small part because Kelly Breen, who trains Pants on Fire, might be too afraid to pick up the phone. “I’d rather have her on our side than have to run against her. And not to put this in a bad way, but Rosie is a redhead and she’s got that fire in her eyes. When she loses,” he said, rolling his eyes, “she’s definitely not a happy camper.” At that point, Breen paused, glanced behind him and turned back, relieved. “I had to look over my shoulder when I said that,” he chuckled. “Like, is Rosie anywhere nearby?” For all that, Napravnik hardly looks imposing. She stands 5-

foot-2 and weighs 111 pounds in full riding gear, with her hair bundled in a bandanna tucked beneath her helmet. She credits frequent fights with an older brother for toughening her up. Yet in a sense, her whole life was preparation for the racetrack. Her mother, Cindy, ran a horsetraining center in New Jersey while raising Rosie — her full name is Anna Rose — and two older siblings. All three grew up working around horses and in the barn. Rosie was riding by age 2, racing ponies at 7 and when she got her hands on a video called “The Jewels of the Triple Crown,” knew what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. “Julie wasn’t in the video,” Napravnik said, referring to Krone, “but she was the only female jockey I’d ever heard of.”

Krone stepped away from racing in 2004 and remains the only woman to have won a Triple Crown race — the 1993 Belmont, aboard Colonial Affair. She said earlier this year what she admired most about Napravnik was her strength and “chutzpah.” Flattering as the comments and comparisons are, Napravnik insists on doing things her own way. Shenotonlywonherdebutrace at Pimlico in 2005, atop a filly named Ringofdiamonds, she had the presence of mind to remember something trainer Dickie Small, one of her mentors, told her years earlier, when he first let her do odd jobs around his barn. “I told her the day she starts riding to hit the horse left-handed under the camera so all the jocks’ agents could see,” Small recently told the Daily Racing Form.

“She’s galloping along five or six in front through the stretch, and boom! Rosie belted her left-handed. “I’d completely forgotten what I told her,” he added, “but she remembered.” That wasn’t the only thing, Napravnik’s mentors said about her. “One,” she recalled, “said the thing that everyone hates about me is what makes me so good, and that’s the way I carry myself. I feel like I have to be as tough as all the guys, and I am. I do this every day with them. I don’t let them mess with me. ... “I have to be like that, I’ve always been like that. It’s actually gotten me,” she said, “really far.”

HANOVER TWP. — Telerx, a customer service call center in the Hanover Industrial Estates, has announced it will expand its work force by 40 to 50 thanks to a contract with an unnamed international soup maker. The company will hold hiring events throughout May beginning today at the Wyoming Valley Mall. The center opened in 1999 with two corporate clients and space to accommodate more than 300 customer service representatives and support staff.

There are currently about 250 associates at that location and with the expected hiring of about 50 more over the next three months, the center will be maxed out. “With the on-boarding of this newest client at our WilkesBarre location, we will be at capacity,” said Jim Neeley, the company’s vice president of human resources. “If we sign additional clients who require us to place their business in WilkesBarre we would be looking for a new location within WilkesBarre.” Currently this center provides customer service support

for two international food and beverage companies. It also has centers in Allentown, Horsham, El Paso, Texas, Charlotte, N.C., and Penticton, British Columbia. Telerx is the 11th largest USbased multichannel contact center and business process outsourcer, and operates as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of pharmaceutical giant Merck.

Freddie Mac says the average rate on the 30-year loan fell to 4.71 percent from 4.78 percent the previous week. That matched this year’s low reached in January. But it is above the 40-year low of 4.17 percent hit in November. The average rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage slipped to 3.89 percent from 3.97 percent. It reached 3.57 percent in November, the lowest level on records dating back to 1991.

CVS Caremark income dips

CVS Caremark Corp. said Thursday that its first-quarter net income fell nearly 8 percent as its pharmacy benefits management business continued to report lower profits. The Woonsocket, R.I., company said its profit fell to $713 million, or 52 cents per share, from $771 million, or 55 cents per share. Its revenue grew 9 percent to $25.88 billion from $23.76 billion. Excluding acquisition and other charges, the company said it earned 57 cents per share. FactSet said analysts expected a profit of 55 cents per share and $25.76 billion in revenue. Revenue from the company’s retail stores rose 4.4 percent to $14.6 billion. Revenue from Caremark rose 18.4 percent to $14 billion with the addition of a contract with Aetna. About $2.7 billion in revenue is counted for both businesses. Profits at the Caremark pharmacy benefits management business fell because of costs connected to a new contract with Aetna Inc.


Tougher set of tour bus rules aired

Department store operator Bon-Ton Stores Inc. said Thursday that revenue at stores open at least a year climbed 5.1 percent in April. This figure is a key indicator of a retailer’s health because it excludes results from stores opened or closed during the year. For the four weeks ended April 30, total revenue rose 4.6 percent to $197.7 million. Some of the stronger categories included fine jewelry, children’s, coats, cosmetics and home including furniture. Weakness was reported in missy, petite and large-size sportswear. Tony Buccina, vice chairman and president of merchandising, said in a statement that the monthly results fell short of the company’s expectations because of softness in seasonal and moderate traditional clothing.

Other truckers have seen demand pick up as the economy has continued its recovery from the recession. But a harsh winter and rising fuel costs have hurt firstquarter earnings at some companies. YRC’s lenders and investors, who agreed to the restructuring last week, will be interested in how the trucker made it through the quarter.

JASON RIEDMILLER/FOR THE TIMES LEADER co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Ted Brunelle addresses those gathered Thursday at the opening of the company’s operations at 201 Lackawanna Ave., Scranton. The online company creates an auction market for jobs and services, letting consumers and businesses vie for local work at the best possible price and terms, providing the market with a new mechanism for job creation and pricing efficiency. will create jobs in area By CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES For The Times Leader

SCRANTON – Deemed a “social commerce” website by its creators, Scranton residents Alex, 27, and Ted Brunelle, 32, publicly unveiled their new business,, on Thursday morning. The auction marketplace, which is currently in a beta testing phase, will facilitate the creation of jobs in Northeastern Pennsylvania, according to Chief Technology Officer Ted Brunelle. “We are to the services marketplace what eBay is to the products marketplace,” he said. The site offers registered users the ability to post “jobs” and seek competitive bids from local business owners to have their work completed, from music lessons to car repairs. Jobs are targeted by category including travel, legal services and entertainment that are broken into subcategories to consolidate searches and results. Users need a free account to post a

new job but not to search for existing work. They can post text and photos or use an internal messaging service to connect with prospective bidders about their job. “It doesn’t cost a penny to bid, it doesn’t cost a penny to post,” Chief Executive Officer Alex Brunelle said. “It’s the responsibility of the buyer and the seller… to interact and have their transaction completed. Our fees are zero.” The owners plan to earn revenue through advertising. Alex Brunelle said programmers Neil Opet, Craig Simko and Amandeep Chopra put in thousands of hours to make the site a success. “I owe the credit of the functionality of the system to them.” The site, the Brunelles said, was born out of needs that they encountered as business and rental property owners. “We had a problem, and there was no service to fulfill our requirements. This is built through the mother of necessi-

ty,” Ted Brunelle said. The brothers hope to have 1 million local “jobs” created before Dec. 31, 2012. “We think it’s going to be very successful, and it’s going to be a paradigm in the marketplace of creating jobs,” Ted Brunelle said. Local elected officials in attendance lauded the idea and the impact it could have on area business. “It’s people like Alex and Ted who create jobs and who help build our economy,” Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien said. The site will rely on promotion through search engine optimization and a strong social networking presence. “This is effectively a merger of e-commerce and social networking to create almost a social commerce,” Alex Brunelle said. has offices in the Scranton Enterprise Center, 201 Lackawanna Ave. For more information, call (570) 309-3999 or visit

WASHINGTON — It would be harder for tour bus companies to win permission to operate and easier for the government to put rogue operators out of business under a series of bus safety steps announced Thursday by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Other proposals announced by LaHood would make it easier for the government to take away bus drivers’ commercial licenses if they violate drug and alcohol laws while operating a vehicle other than a bus or if they fail to pay fines. Attention to bus safety by Transportation Department officials and members of Congress has been heightened since the March 12 crash of a bus returning to New York City’s Chinatown after an overnight excursion to a Connecticut casino. Fifteen were killed when the bus — which safety investigators say was traveling at its maximum possible speed of 78 mph — toppled off an elevated highway and struck a utility pole, peeling off its roof. A passenger has said the driver fell asleep; the driver has said he was alert and well-rested. The new proposals would require bus companies to pass a safety audit before receiving federal permission to operate. The audit would include an interview with the company’s owners and a safety examination of the company’s drivers and vehicles. The department also would have greater authority to pursue enforcement action against unsafe "reincarnated" or "chameleon" companies, which are operations that go out of business in one location after being cited for safety violations and reopen in another location under a new name.

$3.2B GM profit best in more than a decade By TOM KRISHER and DEE-ANN DURBIN AP Auto Writers

DETROIT — General Motors Co. reported its highest quarterly profit in more than a decade, helped by demand for fuel-efficient cars and a big gain from selling its stake in its former auto parts business. The biggest U.S. automaker said Thursday that it earned $3.2 billion, or $1.77 per share, in the first quarter. It was a great start considering the

spike in U.S. gasoline prices, a trend that would have sunk the company just a few years ago when it relied on gas-guzzling pickups and SUVs for profits. GM’s results follow strong earnings reports at crosstown rivals Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC. GM thrived in the quarter by selling small cars like the new Chevrolet Cruze, and efficient crossover vehicles such as the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. Revenue rose 15 per-

cent to $36.2 billion, driven by a 25 percent jump in U.S. auto sales and a 10 percent gain in China. GM’s quarterly net income is more than triple the $865 million it earned in the first quarter of last year. It’s also a good sign for the U.S. government, which is hoping the profit boosts GM’s stock price so it AP FILE PHOTO can sell its stake in the company and recoup more of the $50 Tom Stephens, vice chairman of General Motors, holds up the billion taxpayer bailout that North American International Auto Show Car of the Year trophy awarded to the Chevrolet Volt. saved GM two years ago.

What to do now?

The S&P 500 is down 2 percent this week after reaching a high for 2011 last Friday. It lost nearly 1 percent Thursday as oil and other commodities fell sharply. Investors were worried about a big rise in the number of people filing claims for unemployment benefits. Some of the selling likely came from speculative investors who helped drive the market higher this year and who are now pulling their money out. Every bull market has its dips – as does every economic recovery. The S&P 500 fell 14 percent between

April and August 2010. Investors were worried about European debt and a possible double-dip recession in the U.S. Since Sept. 1, the S&P 500 is up 27 percent. There are seasonal factors, too. May through October has historically been the weakest stretch for the market. Since 1945, the S&P 500 has gained an average 1.3 percent over those six months. On average, it has risen 4.1 percent over any six-month period. Here is advice from strategists about weathering the market’s down times:

John Buckingham

Chief investment officer of Al Frank Asset Management

Consider it a buying opportunity. When good stocks fall, they go on sale, he says. “If you can get them at a lower price, absolutely take advantage of it.” He likes Marathon Oil, which is down 8 percent since Friday, and Taskos Energy Navigation, a shipper that’s down nearly 1 percent.

Sam Dedio

Head of US equities at Artio Global Management

Keep your eye on the calendar. He says demand for stocks tends to slow

this time of the year. One reason: Many investors have made annual contributions to 401(k) and other retirement plans. He also says company earnings tend to weaken during the summer. Total earnings for the S&P 500 have fallen between the second and third quarters in 12 of the last 20 years. That encourages some investors to sell.

Andy Jung

Co-portfolio manager of the Aston/Montag & Caldwell Mid Cap Growth Fund

Keep a long-term approach. Investors should own stocks only if they don’t need the money in the short term. If they have a long-term approach, investors can tune out short-term fluctuations. “We don’t tend to get too whipped around by day-to-day events,” he says. He holds stocks in his fund for an average of about three years. Stan Choe, Elizabeth Gramling • AP

Very dry air continues to blanket our region this morning and with a good deal of sunshine and light winds, temperatures will easily approach 70 this afternoon. The sun's rays are now as strong as they are on August 7. Later today, cloudiness will herald the approach of a weak low pressure trough which will bring a shower overnight, but tomorrow should turn out to be rather nice with only the slight chance for a shower as the trough axis moves through. A blocking pattern will set up allowing both Sunday and Monday to be dry. And yes, I can already smell the scent of freshly cut grass. - Tom Clark
