Juvie placement costs stay low Significant reduction in number from when former Judge Ciavarella ran court.


FEELING THE HEAT Miami’s season, the one that’s supposed to end in an NBA championship and vindication, was slipping away. LeBron James brought it back. And this time, Dwyane Wade helped him. James scored 40 points, Wade added 30 - 22 in the second half - and Miami’s dynamic duo took over after halftime to get the Heat even in the series with a 101-93 win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Sunday.

PITTSBURGH — Some people are absolutely sure gas drilling threatens public health, while others are absolutely sure it doesn’t. Geisinger Health Systems is looking for more facts on the debate. “Our concern is getting reliable data so we know what to do for our patients,” said David Carey, director of Geisinger’s Weis Center for Research in Danville. Geisinger serves many patients who live in areas that have seen a recent boom in Marcellus Shale gas drilling. Geisinger serves this area through its Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township and Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre, as well as Community Medical Center in Scranton. The gas-rich formation thousands of feet underground has generated jobs, billions of dollars and concerns about possible environmental and public health impacts from thousands of new wells. “There’s a real need for reliable information for policymakers,” Carey said, yet some of the debate on the issue has been more emotion-driven than sciencedriven. “Lack of data has not led to a lack of opinion,” Carey noted.

Step-By-Step faces wrongful death suit Case involves choking death of John Glenn Popple at a group home in Tunkhannock. By JERRY LYNOTT

WILKES-BARRE – The brother of a 48-year-old autistic man who died after choking on jelly doughnuts at a group home in Tunkhannock filed a wrongful death suit against Step-By-Step Inc., the operator of the facility. John Glenn Popple was a known choking risk when he moved to New Hope Community Home in September 2005 and re-

quired constant around-the-clock supervision and line-of-sight supervision during waking hours, according to the suit filed Thursday in Luzerne County Court. The suit claimed Step-By-Step of Kidder Street, Wilkes-Barre, was negligent and failed to properly train its staff to ensure Popple’s safety. Had the company installed a device to alert staff when Popple left his bedroom, his death would have been prevented, the suit said. Jeffrey Scott Popple of Bear Creek Township, administrator of his brother’s estate, was seeking unspecified damages in the suit.


Citing “confidentiality reasons,” James Bobeck, president and chief executive officer of Step-By-Step, declined comment on the specifics of the suit. However, he added the staff is made up of dedicated and committed professionals who have worked with the clients for years. According to the suit, on two separate occasions before his death, John Glenn Popple grabbed cookies and cake and stuffed them into his mouth. On the night of Sept. 14, 2010, Popple awoke and without the staff’s knowledge walked approximately 50 feet down a hallway to the kitchen, stuffed four or five

doughnuts in his mouth and started to choke, according to the suit. A staff member found Popple, and others who came to his aid were able to remove some of the food from his mouth. But Popple turned blue and when his knees buckled, they helped him to the floor and continued to reach into his mouth for the food and deliver blows to his back to dislodge the rest, according to the suit. An emergency medical technician who responded to the home performed the Heimlich maneuver approximately six times to dislodge the food and used suction to extract debris, according

to the suit. An ambulance took Popple to Mercy Tyler Hospital, where he was sedated because of his agitated state and concern he was in danger of harming himself and hospital staff, according to the suit. At 11:23 p.m., he went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead 17 minutes later, the suit said. An autopsy revealed his lungs were injured after inhaling some of the regurgitated contents of his stomach, according to the suit. The suit was filed by attorneys Peter Paul Olszewski Jr. and Melissa A. Scartelli.


WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Two jewelry merchants at the Fine Arts Fiesta on Public Square reported Saturday necklaces and bracelets were stolen from their booths between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday.

Dweck appeared to be under the influence of an unknown drug when he entered the police station to use the restroom. When he failed to come out after a considerable amount of time, officers entered the restroom and found him trying to flush the used packets, police said. • Thomas Mulea Jr. of North Chestnut Drive, Drums, reported Thursday his Pennsylvania license plate GYE9916 was stolen and a tire on his car was cut by what appeared to be a knife. • Three doors to the public restroom next to the playground at Coal Street Park were reported marked with graffiti Thursday morning. • Gregorio Marmolejo was arrested and charged with violating a protection from abuse order on Wednesday. HANOVER TWP. - Township police reported the following: • An 18-year-old man shot himself in the stomach around 4 a.m. Sunday on Mary Street. The unidentified man was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township for treatment. The investigation into the shooting continues. • An arrest warrant was issued for Deborah Anne Holton, 21, of Horton Street, Wilkes-Barre, for allegedly violating a protection of abuse order. Venessa Filip of Hanover Village Apartments reported she had a nocontact protection order against Holton, who came to her apartment Friday night and caused a disturbance. Holton left the area before police arrived. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Holton is asked to contact police at 570 825-1254 or Luzerne County 911. • A 17-year-old boy reported he was approached by a man with a folding knife while walking along the Sans Souci Parkway late Friday night. The boy was not injured and the man with the knife fled the scene. The suspect is described as a white man with light hair in his 30s and wearing a dark hooded jacket and jeans. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Holton is asked to contact police at 570 8251254 or Luzerne County 911. • Hollis Crispens of Hanover Village Apartments reported Sunday her Jeep was run off the road on East Division Street by a Ford station wagon. Neither Crispens nor her 8-year-old passenger were injured and her Jeep was not damaged. Crispens provided police a license plate number. The case is under investigation.

Mother, sister, daughter remembered Shana Burney-Bagley memorialized with song and balloons on first anniversary of shooting death. By JERRY LYNOTT

HANOVER TWP. – As a small flotilla of balloons cleared a tree line at the edge of the field on Main Street, Bradley Bagley Jr. still held onto the one with his mother’s name and photo imprinted on it. The 3-year-old boy joined his sisters, relatives and others Sunday to remember Shana Burney-Bagley on the first anniversary of her death and what would have been her 26th birthday. Approximately 75 people sang “Happy Birthday” and released the balloons around 3 p.m., not far from where the mother of three children was shot and killed in a murder-suicide in the Hanover Village Apartments. The event elicited a mix of emotions for Tara Burney, who helped organize it. She lost her baby sister and confi-

dante. “I talked to her about everything,” said Burney, 31, of Wilkes-Barre, and those conversations are sadly missed. “It’s an everyday battle,” she said, “with custody and getting the kids past losing her.” Not all of the children understand what happened to their mother. Burney’s parents, Gary and Sharon Burney of Wilkes-Barre, are trying to get custody of Bradley Jr. and his 4-year-old sister, Analiese, from their father, Bradley Burney Sr., who was not at the event. He was welcome there if he came alone, said Sharon Burney. He has remarried after the shooting and he and his new wife are expecting a child, she said. Sharon Burney’s son, Gary Jr., and his wife, Nadine, adopted 8-year-old Ariauna, Burney-Bagley’s oldest child. The grandmother acknowledged she too struggles with her daughter’s death. “That was my baby,” she said. Still Burney said she takes solace in her communications with her.

“I talk to her every day,” said Sharon Burney. “She did come to me in a dream,” she added. It was about Shana saying she had to go back to the apartment complex where she was killed despite Bur-

Millions in Asia view rare ‘ring of fire’ eclipse During event, moon passes in front of sun, leaving only a golden ring around its edges. By ERIC TALMADGE Associated Press

TOKYO — Millions of Asians watched as a rare “ring of fire” eclipse crossed their skies early today. The annular eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was visible to wide areas across the continent. It was to move across the Pacific and be seen in parts of the western United States. In Japan, “eclipse tours” were arranged at schools and parks, on pleasure boats and even private airplanes. Similar events were held in China and Taiwan as well, with skywatchers warned to protect their eyes. The eclipse was broadcast live on TV in Tokyo, where such an eclipse hasn’t been vis-

A light rain fell on Tokyo as the eclipse began, but the clouds thinned as it reached its peak, providing near-perfect conditions. “It was a very mysterious sight,” said Kaori Sasaki, who joined a crowd in downtown Tokyo to watch the event. “I’ve never seen anything like it.” At the Taipei Astronomical Museum in Taiwan, the specta-

The moon is too far from Earth and appears too small in the sky to blot out the sun completely. Doctors and education officials have warned of eye injuries from improper viewing. Before the event started, Japan’s Education Minister Hirofumi Hirano demonstrated how to use eclipse glasses in a televised news conference. Police also cautioned against traffic accidents — warning drivers to keep their eyes on the road.

NATO summit starts amid protests

Taiwan’s leader has egg on his face

Protesters throw eggs at a portrait of Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou ahead of his inauguration ceremony Sunday in Taipei, Taiwan. Participants said they were angry about Ma’s economic policies, including his decision to raise utility prices, announced after his January re-election to a second fouryear term.

CHICAGO — The NATO alliance that has fought for a decade inAfghanistanishelpingthatnation shift toward stability and peace, but there will be “hard days ahead,” President Barack Obama said Sunday as alliance leaders insisted the fighting coalition will remain effective despite France’s plans to pull com-

bat troops early. With a global economic crisis and waning public support for the war in the backdrop, world leaders opened a NATO summit confronted by questions about Afghanistan’s post-conflict future: money for security forces, coming elections and more. They were also papering over the crack in the fighting alliance with the planned French withdrawal. Thousands of demonstrators marched through downtown Chicago to the site of the NATO summit to express their dissatis-


faction with the war. “We still have a lot of work to do and there will be great challenges ahead,” Obama said. “The loss of life continues in Afghanistan and there will be hard days ahead.” The end of the war is in sight, Obama said following a lengthy discussion with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. NATO is pledged to remain in Afghanistan into 2014, but will seal plans Sunday and today to shift foreign forces off the front lines a year faster than once planned. Afghan forces will take

the lead throughout the nation next year, instead of in 2014. The shift is in large part a response to plummeting public support for the war in Europe and the United States, contributors of most of the 130,000 foreign troops now fighting the Taliban-led insurgency. Meanwhile, prosecutors charged two more activists Sunday with crimes tied to the twoday NATO summit, accusing one of saying he wanted to blow up a downtown Chicago bridge and a second with seeking to build pipe bombs.

Hundreds of activists outside prison including a presidential candidate meanwhile held a symbolic 24-hour strike in support of the group and against the military trials of civilians. The protest comes on the eve of presidential elections that are supposed to lead to Egypt’s ruling military council stepping down in favor of a civilian government— but also amid rising fears that the generals will continue to transfer civilians to military tribunals after the transition. The military is suspected of trying to retain considerable powers past the handover. COLUMBIA, S.C.

The first storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season that officially begins June 1 was not expected to approach landfall on the Carolinas’ coast, but it prompted a tropical storm watch and forecasters warned it could produce high winds, heavy surf, rip currents and scattered rain across the region. “It’s making the closest approach to the coastline now, so the impacts shouldn’t be much different than what we are already seeing,” said Jonathan Lamb, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, S.C.

U.N. nuke chief off to Iran

The U.N. nuclear agency chief says he is “positive” about the chances of clinching a deal with Iran that would allow his organization to resume a probe into whether Tehran worked on atomic arms. But he also notes that “nothing is certain.” International Atomic Energy Agency head Yukiya Amano spoke about his expectations shortly before boarding a flight to Tehran on Sunday. His agency hopes talks there with senior officials will result in an agreement that will restart its investigation. For more than four years, Iran has refused to provide the IAEA access to relevant sites, officials, and documents. Amano told reporters that his meetings should “help reach agreement” on a deal. Iran denies conducting work on nuclear weapons. SEATTLE

Teen rescued at waterfalls

Swept down one waterfall and about to plunge over a much larger one, a 13-year-old boy managed to climb onto a 1-foot-wide rock in a gushing Washington state river — and then stayed there for eight and a half hours until rescuers finally saved him early Sunday morning, sheriff’s officials said. The teen was hiking with his father and his father’s friend at about 5 p.m. Saturday, when he began wading in the river above Wallace Falls, at a popular state park 45 miles northeast of Seattle. The top of the falls is a steep, nearly 3-mile hike from the trailhead. The boy slipped on some rocks, and the water carried him down a 10-foot waterfall. Just before he would have fallen over the 270-foot main attraction, he scrambled to the rock, five yards from shore.

But attorneys for the two men said the charges were manufactured by a pair of police informants or undercover officers and again accused authorities of trumping up a case to scare protesters. The trio charged Saturday are Brian Church, 20, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Jared Chase, 24, of Keene, N.H.; and, Brent Vincent Betterly, 24, of Oakland Park, Fla. They were arrested on Wednesday and face charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism, material support for terrorism and possession of explosives.

A man looks at the damage caused by a quake in Finale Emilia, northern Italy, on Sunday. An earthquake shook northern Italy Sunday at 4:04 a.m. between Modena and Mantova, about 30 miles north of Bologna at a relatively shallow depth of 6 miles. Four people were killed and many structures, including many dating back centuries, were heavily damaged.

Millions of dollars in losses caused to region By LUCA BRUNO and FRANCES D’EMILIO Associated Press


ANT’AGOSTINO DI FERRARA, Italy — A magnitude-6.0 earthquake shook several small towns in northeast Italy on Sunday, killing four people, knocking down a clock tower and other centuries-old buildings and causing millions in losses to the region known for making Parmesan cheese. AP PHOTO

The quake struck at 4:04 a.m., with its epicenter People on Sunday look at the damaged town hall building in Sant’Agostino di Ferrara, Italy.

about 22 miles north of Bologna at a relatively shallow depth of 3.2 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Civil protection agency official Adriano Gumina described it as the worst quake to hit the region since the 1300s. The four people killed were factory workers on the overnight shift when their buildings, in three separate locations, collapsed, agency chief Franco Gabrielli said, In addition, he said, two women died — apparently of heart attacks that may have been sparked by fear. Sky TG24 TV reported one of them was about 100 years old. Gabrielli said dozens of people were injured. Two of the dead were workers at a ceramics factory in the town of Sant’Agostino di Ferrara. Their cavernous building turned into a pile of rubble, leaving twisted metal supports jutting out at odd angles and the roof mangled. “This is immense damage, but the worst part is we lost two people,” fellow worker Stefano Zeni said. News reports said one of the dead had worked the shift of an ill colleague. Elsewhere in the town, another worker

was found dead under factory rubble. In the town of Ponte Rodoni di Bondeno, a worker also died as his factory collapsed, emergency workers told Italian news agencies. Premier Mario Monti, in Chicago for the NATO summit, told reporters he was returning to Italy before the meeting ends because of the quake. The quake struck in the farm region known for production of Parmigiano and Grana cheeses. Italy’s farm lobby Coldiretti said that some 200,000 huge, round cheeses were damaged, causing a loss to producers of $65 milion. It also said in a statement that at least three barn roofs collapsed, trapping an unspecified number of pigs and milk cows inside. Emilio Bianco, receptionist at Modena’s Canalgrande hotel — housed in an ornate 18th-century palazzo — said the quake “was a strong one, and it lasted quite a long time.”

Heavy smokers can get CT scans New lung cancer screening guidelines apply to ages 55 to 74.


CHICAGO — New lung cancer screening guidelines from three medical groups recommend annual scans but only for an older group of current or former heavy smokers. The advice applies only to those aged 55 to 74. The risks of screening younger or older smokers or nonsmokers outweigh any benefits, according to the guidelines. About 8 million Americans would be eligible for screening under the new criteria, and if all of them got the scans,

about 4,000 lung cancer deaths per year could be prevented, said Dr. Peter Bach of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He chaired the expert panel that wrote the new guidelines for the American College of Chest Physicians, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. The recommended screening involves low-dose CT scans, which are a special kind of X-ray that can detect lung cancer early, but also can have false-positive results. Regular chest X-rays can also detect lung cancer but they provide less detailed images than CT scans, can also have false-positive results and have not

been recommended as a screening tool because they have not been shown to save lives. The guidelines were published online Sunday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. An estimated 226,000 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. It is the leading cause of cancer deaths for U.S. men and women. An estimated 160,000 lung cancer deaths nationwide will occur this year. That number has declined in recent years, partly because of better detection and fewer people smoking. Widespread screening will likely lead to some deaths because abnormal results are followed by biopsies that sometimes have deadly complications.

CAIRO— Abdel Basset Ali alMegrahi, convicted in the 1988 bombing of an American airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland, died at home in Tripoli on Sunday nearly three years after passions around the case were reawakened when he was freed on compassionate grounds due to what was reported as advanced prostate cancer. Al-Megrahi, 60, a former intelligence officer, became an icon of state-sponsored terrorism under the rule of the late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Al-Megrahi repeatedly denied he had a role in al-Megrahi the downing of Pan Am 103, which killed 270 people, including 189 Americans, and led to Libya’s further isolation as a rogue state. Diminished and purportedly close to death, al-Megrahi was released from custody in Scotland in 2009 on humanitarian grounds. The gesture was immediately scorned by the families of victims and condemned by Western leaders, including President Barack Obama. The release was widely seen as a backroom deal for Gadhafi to provide oil and gas contracts to benefit Great Britain. British and Scottish officials denied the accusation. Al-Megrahi returned to Tripoli to a hero’s welcome, allowing Gadhafi, a master of intrigue and theatrics, to use the homecoming as a propaganda ploy. With both Gadhafi and al-Megrahi now dead, it is unlikely that a clearer picture will emerge of the details and planning of an attack that stunned the world and left debris scattered across Scotland. "I am an innocent man," al-Megrahi, the only person convicted in the case, said in his last interview, published in several British newspapers in December. "I am about to die and I ask now to be left in peace with my family." Many relatives of the Pan Am 103 victims still feel justice has been denied. "Fine. He deserved to die," Susan Cohen of Cape May Court House, N.J., whose daughter Theodora died in the attack, told CNN. "He was a mass murderer. I feel no pity around him. He got to die with his family around him. My daughter, at age 20, died a brutal, horrible death." Al-Megrahi exemplified "the classic case that no matter how heinous the crime, that justice can be bought," said Victoria Cummock of Miami, whose husband, John, was on the plane. "His death is a relief. Finally Megrahi will be judged by the highest of authorities — our maker, his maker."

Parents make appeals before webcam case sentencing Tyler Clementi killed himself after Dharun Ravi used webcam to see him kiss another man. By GEOFF MULVIHILL Associated Press

ORADELL, N.J. — One couple lost their teenage son to suicide in the days after his college roommate used a webcam to see him kiss another man in September 2010; the other fears their son will be sent to prison this week for doing the spying. The parents of Tyler Clementi and Dharun Ravi, on opposite sides of a tragedy, have been in the public eye throughout the case, but have remained cautious when choosing their public words about their predicaments and their sons. Both families sat through nearly every minute of Ravi’s fourweek-long trial, at which he was convicted in March of 15 criminal

charges including invasion of privacy and tampering with evidence. And both appeared in public forums last week Clementi just before Ravi is to be sentenced. The two most serious counts — bias intimidation — could get him up to 10 years in prison, Ravi though prosecutors have said the maximum penalty is not necessary. A sentence of more than a year would also increase the likelihood that federal immigration authorities will try to deport Ravi to India, where he was born and remains a citizen, though he has lived most of his life in New Jersey.

The case has turned Clementi and Ravi, who for just three weeks shared a Rutgers University dorm room they were randomly assigned, into widely known symbols. Clementi is seen as an example of what can happen to young gays who are too often bullied even as acceptance of gays has increased. Ravi has been portrayed as a young man victimized by overzealous prosecutors who reacted to a tragedy by piling on charges. In their choices of where

to appear, each couple has supported the symbolic perception of its own son. A judge is to decide Ravi’s sentence today. The hearing will include statements from people close to Clementi. Ravi’s lawyer said Friday that it was not yet decided whether Ravi will speak. Ravi’s parents attended a rally last week at New Jersey’s State House in Trenton. Several hundred supporters, nearly all of them Indian or Indian-American

“You Have A Doctor In The Family”

like them and their 20-year-old son, called for Ravi to be kept out of prison and for reforms to hatecrime laws. The protesters said Ravi should not have been convicted of hate crimes because he does not hate gay people and that prison is too harsh a punishment for someone who did not mean to hurt anyone. Clementi’s parents have communicated with the public mostly through written statements or

reading prepared statements after court proceedings. In one, they said they wanted Ravi to be held accountable but that he need not be subject to a “harsh” punishment. They did grant interviews in December as they announced the launch of a foundation to honor their son, which is focusing on promoting online civility, preventing bullying and encouraging the acceptance of gays and others perceived to be different.

ular classes and probably can bump someone with less seniority to stay on the district payroll. Cutting the position will save around $50,000. Meckes said she is grateful she has that option, but notes the number of elementary music teachers is still being cut by half, “from two to one.” More important, she said, “music is my passion.” That’s one of many reasons the district should keep her where she is, Wilkes University music professor Philip Simon said. “She has a real passion and a real skill for teaching elementary band. That’s what she should be teaching.” Simon said numerous studies going back to the 1980s have shown elementary students who study music develop better critical thinking skills, score better in standardized tests and are better able to stay focused and on task. An elementary music and band program is also the only way to develop a top-grade high school band or orchestra. “The vast majority of people learn an instrument best and most effectively if they start in fourth or fifth grade.” McLaughlin-Smith acknowledged the booming elementary program under Meckes is “a great feeder system for the high school band,” but something had to be cut. “I understand where she’s coming from,” McLaughlin-Smith said. “It’s difficult to make these choices.” Simon said he believes music and arts are often first on the school budget chopping block because “people don’t seem willing to pay for something that doesn’t provide a tangible return.” The impact of music on test scores or student success is subtle and diffuse, rounding out the student in a way that may not be obviously measured as districts try to meet state goals for standardized test results. O’Neill is trying to rally parents, urging others who want to see the program continued at its current level, with Meckes still teaching music, to show up at the next School Board meeting May 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school library. “I appreciate they have to look at these things for the good of the district,” O’Neill said, “but sometimes you really have to know how you are affecting these kids.” Meckes also wants to keep the focus on the students. She is still preparing them for their spring concert May 30. The public is invited. “I think I’ve helped students realize their passion for music, and I really hope the people involved see that passion and make sure these kids get a wellrounded education,” Meckes said. “I know there are no easy choices, but this program has come so far in such a short period of time. It makes me sad.”

teaching music is palpable. Those faces include parent Andrea O’Neill, who worries that her daughter’s new interest in the clarinet will disappear if Meckes can no longer teach music. “The kids work for her (Meckes),” O’Neill said. “They are totally inspired by her.” A 20-year music teacher who came to Crestwood in March 2011 to teach elementary music full-time, Meckes position is on the chopping block. In an effort to erase a roughly $1 million shortfall, the district’s preliminary budget calls for elimination of nine teaching positions and a school nurse. Districts throughout Luzerne County are struggling with similar decisions, though most other school boards have the option of not replacing retirees. Crestwood has no one retiring. Acute budget shortfalls began last year when Gov. Tom Corbett slashed money flowing from the state to districts. Corbett insisted the amount of state money was the same or even higher than the previous year, but that federal stimulus dollars used to bolster state education spending had dried up, and the state could not afford to replace the lost dollars. To business managers and school boards, that’s a difference without a distinction. Many district officials point out that, regardless of the cause, they suddenly saw steep drops in state funding. Meckes and O’Neill readily acknowledge the conundrum and resultant need for frugality, but question the wisdom of scaling back what has become a big draw for elementary students. O’Neill notes that when Meckes began teaching music, there were about 110 students studying instruments at Fairview and Rice combined. There are now 292. O’Neill also said Meckes resurrected a dormant Rice chorus program that quickly drew more than 50 students. “She sees a total of 322 students on a weekly basis,” O’Neill said. Meckes also started expanding performances, setting up a Christmas and spring concert, and having the students play and sing at sports games and nursing homes. “She’s a ridiculously hardworking person,” O’Neill said. Superintendent Dave McLaughlin Smith said the district is trying to cut spending without eliminating programs. In this case, the district will still have one person teaching music. McLaughlin Smith said Meckes position is being cut, but she is certified to teach reg-

Jersey brings $4.4M The Associated Press

A baseball jersey worn by Babe Ruth sold for more than $4.4 million Sunday, a record for any item of sports memorabilia, according to the buyer and seller. SCP Auctions, based in California, said the circa 1920 New York Yankees uniform top is the earliest known jersey worn by Ruth and it fetched $4,415,658 at the company’s April auction, which ended Sunday. That price broke the previous record of $4,338,500 set in 2010 for James Naismith’s founding rules of

The road top has “New York” written across the front and the Hall of Fame slugger wore it shortly after he was sold to the Yankees by the Boston Red Sox for $100,000 following the 1919 season.

Robin Gibb is dead

Bee Gees brother, 62, succumbs after battle with cancer, intestinal surgery. By HOWARD COHEN McClatchy Newspapers

Robin Gibb, one of the most identifiable voices in popular music for five decades and whose contribution to oft-covered pop standards in which he sang lead such as “I Started a Joke,” “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You” and “Holiday” proved timeless, died Sunday at age 62. “ThefamilyofRobinGibb,ofthe Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery,” said a statement from his family. The musician and member of the Bee Gees — with brothers Barry and Maurice — died in West London. He lapsed into a coma after contracting pneumonia in April. Gibb emerged from the coma after nine days, astonGibb ishing his doctor, who was treating the musician for advanced colorectal cancer. Gibb was conscious and able to communicate. Gibb’s cancer was diagnosed after surgery for a blocked bowel and twisted intestine in 2010, and the disease spread to his liver. Maurice Gibb, his twin and often songwriting partner on projects outside of the Bee Gees, died in January 2003, at age 53, after surgery for an intestinal blockage. The twins shared the hereditary intestinal condition. Youngest brother Andy Gibb, who had a successful solo career in the late 1970s, died in 1988 at age 30 of a heart ailment after fighting an addiction to cocaine. After a series of treatments, including chemotherapy and two operations, Robin Gibb appeared to have recovered from the cancer, and had planned on attending the premiere of “The Titanic Requiem,” his first classical work, composedwithhissonRJ,tocommemorate the centennial of the Titanic’s sinking. But he underwent further intestinal surgery in March, and couldn’t attend the premiere, and it was reported that doctors believed a second tumor was present before he contracted pneumonia. Robin Gibb, who was born, as were his brothers, on the Isle of Man, found hometown success as a vocal trio in Australia but had more exposure when they moved to England in 1967 to launch the Bee Gees. The trio’s music and their image became inescapable, however, after a move to Miami Beach in the mid-1970s and an updating of their sound to incorporate R&B and dance on songs like “Jive Talkin’,” “You Should Be Dancing” and “Stayin’ Alive.” Robin and Barry Gibb composed the majority of the songs on Barbra Streisand’s “Guilty” in 1980. In addition, the Gibbs wrote full albums for Dionne Warwick, Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross and Swedish pop star Carola. Pop, R&B, jazz, blues and hip-hop acts like Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Janis Joplin, Nina Simone, Al Green, Michael Buble, Wyclef Jean and Destiny’s Child recorded Gibb songs. Their dance music from 1977’s “Saturday Night Fever” epitomized an entire decade. And the music endures — the television show Glee recently devoted an episode to the movie’s music.

han. The men are in federal prison. Ciavarella was convicted of multiple charges, including racketeering and money laundering. Conahan pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy. Changes in 2008 The plunge in placements began when county Judge David Lupas took over juvenile court in May 2008. Lupas said at the time he had a legal obligation to listen to all evidence and input before deciding the fate of young offenders and to impose the least restrictive option that fits each case. Vecchio said placement numbers have remained steady under other judges more recently assigned to family court matters. Some placements are necessary if juveniles would benefit more from specialized treatment or rehabilitation at outside facilities, officials said. The state welfare department praised the county in 2010 for reducing the number of children placed outside their homes. Luzerne was among 16 counties that participated in a state program aimed at reducing placements. County Children and Youth Director Frank Castano said his office took over the tracking of placement payment requests at the end of 2008 to increase scrutiny. The office checks invoices and reviews contracts with outside providers, he said. Castano said he’s optimistic spending on placements will remain at or under $3.8 million this fiscal year. It’s a reduction from 2009-10, when placements totaled $4.1 million. A total of 107 juveniles were in placement – both detention and treatment – in November 2008, when his office started monitoring statistics. The number of county youths in detention typically ranges from six to 10, Vecchio said. Several years ago, the county norm was around 17 juveniles in detention at any given time, officials said. Detention is the temporary lodging of juvenile offenders

a newer roof, he said. “It would need to be completely renovated to be used for anything,” Gibbons said, noting it has a constricted layout and no elevator. County officials considered a new records storage facility at the site in recent years, but backed away. Engineering consultants estimated the cost to demolish and rebuild at $3.4 million. The site is close to the courthouse, above the flood plain

Prison workers use the facility for K-9 training, he said.

as they wait for a judge to determine their punishment. A judge decides whether the offenders remain home or are placed in treatment facilities. Area police have been asked to request detention only if the offenders allegedly committed felonies, pose a safety threat or are in special circumstances that warrant immediate removal from their homes, county officials say.

The county had relied on the facility since Conahan stopped sending youth to the county’s River Street juvenile detention center in 2002, arguing that it was not fit for habitation Probation officers must interview and process offenders in detention. Vecchio said most Luzerne County youth are lodged in Northampton County for detention. Lackawanna County’s detention center is closer but often full, he said. “It’s not ideal, but we adjust. We’re not the only county without a detention center,” Vecchio said.

No local center now Vecchio said the number of detention placements impacts his office because the county no longer has a local detention center. PA Child Care, the Pittston Township center linked to the scandal involving Conahan

Under Russia’s president, peaceful protesters and other hallmarks of democracy sometimes get shoved aside.

Putin’s autocratic rule threatens democracy


LADIMIR PUTIN IS meant to stand for stability, and he used his inaugural address to pledge to strengthen democracy. In fact, his presidency represents a threat to both. In the lead-up to his inauguration for a third term as Russia’s president, riot police raided cafés and grabbed people off the streets – even merely for sporting white ribbons, which symbolize opposition to Putin’s autocratic rule. Two prominent opposition leaders, Alexei Navalny and Sergei Udaltsov, were jailed for disobeying police. A state that sets upon its opponents, deploys riot police and armored vehicles to clear peaceful protesters and detains its critics is by its nature unstable and undemocratic. Putin, then, would seem to pose a risk to the very things he claims to want and Russia most needs.

It need not be this way. Putin is often characterized as a KGB thug, but he was not always seen as such. In his first term, as Russia was emerging from the chaos of the immediate post-Soviet (and post-Yeltsin) era, he was viewed as a stabilizing influence, and by some even as a reformer. His governments have included liberals, but these hopes gradually faded, both because of his policies and because of his decision to flout the spirit of Russia’s constitutional term limit by arranging to become prime minister after his first two presidential terms. But Putin could reclaim his reputation were he to use his third term to pursue a more open Russia and a bigger role for his country. There is always a place for hope. But this would require a new Vladimir Putin to emerge. The Globe and Mail, Toronto

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I’m in a safe place, reading and playing my guitar.” Shahin Najafi The Iranian-born singer, who has lived in Germany since 2005, recently went into hiding after receiving death threats for allegedly insulting a Shiite saint in a song. An unknown person posting on a Persian-language website reportedly put a $100,000 bounty on his head.

Eurozone exit dangerous


T IS MORE than obvious that a chaotic departure from the euro will be a Greek tragedy in which we will all suffer. The reluctance Greece is exhibiting in swallowing the bitter pill of austerity is alarming. But the alternative is no less painful. Even though a return to its own currency will in theory enable Greece to sharpen its export competitiveness, the eventual devaluation by an unpredictably large margin might prove as painful as those belt-tightening measures. For the eurozone as a whole, the exit of Greece would not only bode ill for other weaker members, but also arouse further public opposition to bailouts in the rich countries. The borrowing costs of Italy and Spain already are on the rise. For the world economy, lasting economic uncertainties in Europe, not to mention the risk

of contagion from a Greek exit that would infect Portugal, Ireland and even Spain and Italy, would be enough to turn the ongoing global recovery into recession. Worse, if policymakers in debt-laden countries cling to super-loose monetary policy as an easy way out, instead of fixing structural problems, the shockwaves will come sooner. It is said that the massive stimulus programs that the international community jointly carried out in wake of the 2008 global financial crisis saved the world from a scenario that could have been much more ugly. That might have been true then. But if policymakers continue to regard buying time with cheap money as their sole obligation, that initial success will turn out to be just the prologue to a real human tragedy. China Daily, Beijing

Democracy vouchers could curb campaign corruption IMAGINE A physician who treats cancer patients by checking for excessive ear wax, and you have some idea of how ethics enforcement works in Washington. We had a perfect illustration recently when the Office of Congressional Ethics cleared Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., of alleged insider-trading violations arising from the financial meltdown of 2008. In his capacity as chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, Bachus had attended a private meeting with then-Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke. The next day, using options, he bet that stocks would fall. Now, a member of Congress ought to be smart enough not to make such trades, which look really bad. Eventually there was a big stink in the news media and an official probe. Yet Bachus didn’t break any laws, and his profit of $5,715 was laughable. But what if I told you that in the 2010 election cycle Bachus and his political action committee got nearly $1.4 million from the very financial services industry he’s supposed to oversee as committee chairman? Sounds outrageous, doesn’t it? Yet there are no ethics investigations. Nobody even seems to bat an eye. That’s because this is business as usual in Washington, where the most appalling stuff is done right out in the open. You’d think, for example, that public ser-


COMMENTARY DANIEL AKST vants oughtn’t to take money from those they regulate. But the nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington found that, in the 2010 election cycle, financial services supplied 64 percent of the money given to the Bachus campaign and his PAC. Consider also that in the 1998 election cycle, when Bachus was just a member of the committee, he got $192,685 from the industry. For the 2010 election, by which time he was chairman, those donations were up 620 percent. Did I mention that Bachus ran unopposed in 2010? He hasn’t had anyone run against him in his heavily Republican district since 2002. The remarkable thing is that the campaign finance record of Spencer Bachus isn’t especially egregious for a committee chair. The point is not that he’s unusual – it’s that he’s typical. Nearly everyone in Congress is focused on raising money, and many of the people writing the checks expect that they’re buying influence. In general, they’re probably right. Under the circumstances, it’s absurd to think Congress would put the interests of the people first. Its members are just too dependent on special-interest money. This is a tough problem. Campaign finance

limits haven’t worked very well, and the Supreme Court’s decision in the Citizens United case has opened the floodgates to corporate and union money. I honestly don’t have the answer, but one interesting proposal, from the legal scholars Bruce Ackerman and Ian Ayres, offers a fresh approach by emphasizing more money instead of less. They want every American voter to be given a $50 “democracy voucher” good for a federal campaign donation. Candidates would only be eligible to receive these donations if they forswear other money except for contributions from citizens, capped at $100 each. Candidates would have a strong incentive to participate because the system would make available more than $6 billion – triple what was spent in the 2010 election cycle. We’d save more than that by reducing the power of special interests to extract tax breaks and other goodies. Will it really work? I don’t know, but I’m open to any ideas that will stem the corrupting tide of money without limiting freedom of speech. Daniel Akst is a columnist for Newsday and a member of the newspaper’s editorial board.


Plymouth Rotary tourney will help kids at holidays


Under the circumstances, it’s absurd to think Congress would put the interests of the people first. Its members are just too dependent on special-interest money.

n June 3, the Plymouth Rotary Club will hold its 12th annual golf tournament. Proceeds from this event will, in part, benefit the club’s “Kids at Kristmas” initiative. This project takes children and adolescents from the Wyoming Valley shopping at Kmart for Christmas gifts that they might not otherwise receive. I have seen the joy this program brings to young people. I have seen the smiles of children who lost everything in a devastating fire, and the Rotary Club was able to replace some of their prized toys. I have witnessed the jubilation of foster kids, who previously were uncared for, after they finally got a game system and several games. I watched the pride of an adolescent who was able to purchase his first cellphone, something his grandmother could not afford on her fixed income. I recall the grandmother and primary caregiver who sent a letter to the Rotary, re-

marking how her 4-year-old grandson “shot” her every day with Nerf darts, and grandma loved every minute of it. These are but a few of the thousands of smiles that Plymouth Rotary has put on the faces of children from the Wyoming Valley over the years. Please keep the spirit of Christmas alive on June 3 by playing in the tournament, making a donation or sponsoring a hole. Thank you, governor Bud, J.K., president Dave and all of the Rotarians from Plymouth for the great work you do!

Rename baseball team to reflect local history


have been reading about a possible name change for the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees when the baseball team returns to Northeastern Pennsylvania for its home games in a remodeled stadium. I believe that a team name that has a local flavor would be better for all sports fans and the area in general. I never had a problem with Red Barons, since this name was developed with much thought back in the late ’80s to incorporate the names of the old Scranton Red Sox and Wilkes-Barre Barons from the Eastern League. Our area is rich in Native American history with the Algonquin, Delaware and other tribes occupying this land more than 5,000 years before the European settlers. Many of these groups were instrumental in the American Revolution. Why not a fresh start next year with a bit of regional history and call this team the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Warriors?

GRADUATION Continued from Page 3A

Fullbright opportunities. King’s alumnus and Campbell’s Foods Vice President Tom Smith delivered the keynote address that centered on themes of perseverance and excellence to a packed house. Smith has been chairman of King’s Board of Trustees since 2010. “Tom has, over the years, worked tirelessly on behalf of King’s students and has been directly responsible for helping many of them land career positions that support them in leading meaningful and purposeful lives,” said King’s president, The Rev. John “Jack” Ryan. During the commencement exercises, honorary doctorates were presented to two local residents who served as board chairs for a combined one-third of the college’s 66-year existence. Charles Parente, Harveys Lake, graduated from King’s in 1962 and served as its board chairman from 1988 to 1997. Eberhard Faber, Bear Creek, succeeded Parente as chairman and served until 2010. Parente and Faber both joined the King’s board in the early 1980s and both continue to serve as members. “Board members have always shared in the excitement of commencement,” said Ryan. “But this year it is appropriate that they are recognized by the college and by our graduates and their families for their service.”

Family and friends of Shana Burney-Bagley celebrate her life Sunday with a balloon release on the grounds of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. She was shot to death a year ago in Hanover Township.

Cooper also wounded BurScranton, was upset about a cus- ney-Bagley’s husband and anoth-


er neighbor, Thomas Harris, before killing himself. Police said the .22-caliber revolver used in the shootings was stolen from a Mountain Top residence and traded for heroin. Two people have been charged in the theft.

But with state and federal budgets under intense pressure, there hasn’t been much money available for serious medical research. Then over the last year, executives at Geisinger realized they had a big head start. “We have a very long history of caring for patients in this region,” Carey said, noting the company serves 2.6 million patients and operates hospitals, clinics, and an insurance program in 44 north central and north eastern counties. That means they have vast troves of health care data, concerning everything from cancer to car accidents to asthma attacks. “We can map the clinical data in both space and in time,” Carey said, meaning they can compare health in areas with gas drilling to similar areas where it isn’t happening. Carey said the company isn’t presuming anything about the issue, though it is aware of concerns and the economic value of the shale boom.

“Our position is, let’s collect the data and find out,” he said. It may fall to private companies to do some of the work. Until a few months ago, Pennsylvania public health officials had expected to get a share of the revenue being generated by the state’s new Marcellus Shale law, which is projected to provide about $180 million to state and local governments in the first year. But representatives from Republican Gov. Tom Corbett’s office and the state Senate cut the health appropriation to zero during final negotiations, so now the state Department of Health is left with a new workload but no funding to examine whether gas drilling impacts health. Many federal and state regulators say hydraulic fracturing is safe when done properly, and that thousands of wells have been drilled with few complaints of pollution. But environmental groups and some doctors assert regulations still aren’t tough enough and that the practice can pollute groundwater and air. The claims and counterclaims have been so extreme that some health experts feel the fear and

confusion that’s been generated among the public is a problem by itself. Bernard Goldstein, a professor emeritus at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health, said experience has shown that patient trust is a key component in health care. Goldstein said Pitt is also looking at ways to use health care data to answer questions about gas drilling and possible public health impacts. Despite all the controversy over the issue, Carey hopes Geisinger can stay above the fray. “To the extent possible, we’re trying to stay clear of any political land mines,” he said. “We see this unfolding in phases. I could see a batch of early studies that might focus on some diseases. Asthma is a good example,” he said, since people with that disease would be very sensitive to possible changes in air quality due to gas drilling. Geisinger hopes to issue some preliminary results of its data analysis within the next year, Carey said, while other aspects of the research will unfold over five, 10 or 15 years.

James, Wade lift Heat over Pacers

Tortorella defends his team, blasts NJ

Miami evens series in Indianapolis

By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer






INDIANAPOLIS — Miami’s season, the one that’s supposed to end in an NBA championship and vindication, was slipping away. LeBron James brought it back. And this time, Dwyane Wade helped him. James scored 40 points, Wade added 30 — 22 in the second half — and Miami’s dynamic duo took over after halftime to get the Heat even in the series with a 101-93 win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference

semifinals Sunday. With Chris Bosh injured and back in Florida, the James-Wade tandem saved the Heat, who will host Game 5 on Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. “Just survival,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “This is what the playoffs are about.”

James was at his MVP best, adding 18 rebounds and nine assists and refusing to let Miami’s season slip away. “It’s still going to be a dogfight,” James said. “It’s a three-game series now.” Wade rebounded from the worst playoff game of his career, shaking off a 1 of 8 shooting start and adding nine rebounds and six assists.

Ranger coach says Devils are taking dives and setting screens on defenders.

Gow was part of an out in each inning, finishing with seven assists and two put outs. Meanwhile, the Trojanettes’ bats were locked in against Becky Demko, who threw a nohitter Friday against Crestwood.

NEW YORK — John Tortorella stood out again at a playoff news conference. Only this time it was because of his feistiness toward the New Jersey Devils and not for his brevity and contentiousness with the media. The New York Rangers coach defended forward Brandon Prust, who could be facing a suspension because of an elbow to the head of New Jersey defenseman Anton Volchenkov, and accused the Devils of embellishing to draw penalties against the Rangers in the Eastern Conference finals. “We tell our U P N E X T players, ‘Don’t GAME 4 stay down on New York the ice. Get up,”’ Rangers Tortorella said at Sunday. “I’ll New Jersey leave it at that. If Devils we want to start 8 p.m. today TV: NBCSN discussing officials with the media, I have a long list here.” He then began to air it. Tortorella said the Devils set picks during power plays to set up shots for Ilya Kovalchuk and prevent the Rangers from getting into position to block them. He added that forward Dainius Zubrus elbowed New York defenseman Anton Stralman on Saturday, and said top New Jersey forward Zach Parise launched himself into another defenseman, Michael Del Zotto. Neither of those players, nor Prust, was penalized for their hits during the Rangers’ 3-0 win that gave New York a 2-1 lead in the East finals. Kovalchuk scored a power-play goal in Game 2 that the Rangers say was made possible by a pick. “We’re trying not to get picked,” Rangers forward Brad Richards said. “Sometimes you get picked. We’re trying to let the refs know and have them look at it.” Prust had a chance to present his version of the hit during a telephone hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Sunday morning. “I was able to talk quite a bit and explain where I was coming from,” Prust said. “I was just trying to get into that check, I was at the end of a shift, just skating over for a routine check, I just

Nanticoke tops Hazleton for D-I East crown By JOHN MEDEIROS

WILKES-BARRE – It was just 10 days ago that Hazleton Area limited Nanticoke to four hits in a shutout win by the Cougars. Sunday, in a playoff for the WVC Division I East championship, Nanticoke had four hits in the first two innings of what became a 2-0 victory over Hazleton Area in front of about 300 people at Coal Street Park. “Since they beat us 7-0, we wanted another chance against them,” Nanticoke senior Lind-


say Roberts said. “That NANTICOKE game was the first time we lost to Hazleton in our HAZLETON whole career. AREA We didn’t want it to happen again.” While both teams already knew their District 2 playoff fortunes, the division crown was especially meaningful to the Trojanettes. “It’s very cool. It’s special to win the division all four years,”


senior Maggie Gola said. Hannah Rubasky, fresh off a one-hitter against Crestwood on Saturday, allowed just two hits to the Cougars on Sunday – both by Lexi Wolk. Nanticoke played another flawless game defensively behind Rubasky, taking opportunities away from Hazleton Area. “She cost us the game, that shortstop,” Hazleton Area coach Vince Trivelpiece said of Nanticoke’s Sammy Gow. “Hannah pitched a great game and Sammy made every play.”


Skwierz, Porfirio get River St. wins

I’ll Have Another is lead around his stable just after arriving at Belmont Park in New York on Sunday.

WILKES-BARRE – Jeff Skwierz and Deedra Porfirio ran to wire-to-wire victories in the River Street 3-Mile Run on Sunday. Skwierz, 29, of Forty Fort, broke the tape in 15 minutes, 44 seconds. He outran second-place finisher, Mike Lisnock, 39, of Berwick, by 46 seconds. Nick Wadas, 30, of Kingston, finished third, one second behind Lisnock. “It went great,” said Skwierz who was a standout runner at

Hazleton Area High School and Lock Haven University. “I took off fast right from the gun at my usual pace. But nobody went with me. Usually there are a group of runners ahead of me that I have to get around in order to get in front – but not today. Today I was out in front all by myself “It went great until the heat kicked in,” he added. “It really got to me over the last mile. My goal, going into the race, was to just get in a good workout and I did. So, I’m happy about that.” Skwierz will be running in his

wanted to rub him out and get off the ice. “He bailed out of it and turned and kind of went low. It’s just kind of a reaction. When you’re off-balance, your arms go up, I didn’t want to do a face plant into the boards. It was just kind of a reaction, I had no intent to hit him in the head there. There was nothing vicious about it.” Prust’s elbow connected with the back of Volchenkov’s helmet near the boards at 2:38 of the second period.

to take the ice without Prust. “I have no clue really,” Prust said when asked if he thought he would be suspended. “I know I’ve played a lot of professional hockey games and never been suspended before, I don’t even think I had an elbowing penalty this year, so I’m sure they’ll take that into account. I didn’t even really feel that elbow. I went to the bench and thought maybe I caught him with my knee, maybe charleyhorsed him. “I didn’t hit him that hard, I think I just kind of grazed his helmet a little bit, and it stood up. For sure he’s trying to get a penalty when your helmet comes up. It’s just natural to try to sell it for a power play.” Not surprisingly, Devils coach Peter DeBoer saw it quite differently.

“Headhunting. Plain and simple,” he said Saturday. Prust wasn’t fazed a bit by DeBoer’s characterization. “I’m not really too worried about what he has to say,” Prust said. “He’s not my coach.” This is just the latest banter between the Devils and Rangers and their respective head coaches. Tensions erupted on March 19 in the final regular-season meeting between the Atlantic Division rivals, when DeBoer had enforcers Cam Janssen, Eric Boulton and Ryan Carter in the starting lineup, and Tortorella countered with a physical lineup of Prust, Mike Rupp and Stu Bickel. The game began with those six players engaging in fights. DeBoer said Tortorella’s remarks on Sunday were, “comical.”

Dutchman wins Tour of California The Associated Press

LOS ANGLES — Dutchman Robert Gesink, eight months after breaking his leg in a training accident, has won the Tour of California. Gesink finished among the pack in Sunday’s eighth and final stage to seal the victory. The 25-year-old Rabobank rider beat Dave Zabriskie by 46 seconds for the title after claiming the mountainous and decisive seventh stage. The final stage was won by Peter Sagan of Slovakia. Sagan, who rides for the LiquigasCanondale team, claimed the 42.6-mile road race from Beverly Hills to downtown Los Angeles with a late burst to take his fifth stage of the race in 1 hours, 27 minutes, 36 seconds. Rabottini wins Giro stage LECCO, Italy — Matteo Rabottini of Italy won the 15th stage of the Giro d’Italia, holding off Joaquin Rodriguez in a close finish Sunday as the Spaniard took back the overall lead from Ryder Hesjedal of Canada. On the second hilltop finish of the race, Rabottini finished in in 5 hours, 15 minutes, 30 seconds. He edged Rodriguez on the final curve of the 105-mile leg from Busto Arsizio to Lecco and Pian dei Resinelli.

BELMONT Continued from Page 1B

2008. It will be the 12th Triple try since 1978, when Affirmed won thoroughbred racing’s most elusive prize. “It’s hasn’t completely sunk in yet,” he said. “The party out here at the barn after the race was like wow! I’ve never seen anything like that — everyone so excited about horse racing and I’ll Have Another being 2-for-2. I definitely feel the energy and buzz in the air.” He hasn’t seen anything yet. The Triple Crown quest brought some tantalizingly close calls since Affirmed turned back Alydar in the Derby, Preakness and Belmont 34 years ago — the longest drought between Triple Crown champions. There was Real Quiet in 1998, who looked like a lock to take the Belmont until he was nailed at the wire by Victory Gallop. And there was Smarty Jones, who also seemed golden in the Belmont stretch only to be reeled in by 36-1 shot Birdstone in the final 70 yards. So can I’ll Have Another win it? Steve Cauthen, who was a freshfaced, 18-year-old jockey who rode Affirmed into history, believes the colt can deliver. Not only does he see similarities with Affirmed, but “The Kid”’ can relate to what “new-kid-on-theblock” rider Mario Gutierrez is experiencing. “I guess I’m having a flashback,” Cauthen said Sunday from his breeding farm in Verona, Ky. “He’s a new kid on the block like I was. The kid’s got a great attitude and a great smile. And, like me, he’s been put in a position to ride in these kinds of races and a shot at maybe winning the Triple Crown. And the trainer and owner have confidence in him, and that’s important, because Laz (Barrera, Affirmed’s trainer) and Mr. Wolfson (owner Louis Wolfson) were 100 percent behind me.”


Coyotes top Kings, avoid West final sweep The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Cancel the coronation, or at least postpone it. The Phoenix Coyotes are still hanging around. Shane Doan scored two goals, Mike Smith made 36 saves in his third playoff shutout, and the Coyotes emphatically avoided playoff elimination with a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday. Ray Whitney and Antoine Vermette had assists for the Coyotes, who escaped a series sweep by snapping the eighthseeded Kings’ eight-game winning streak in front of long-suf-

fering fans denied the chance to celebrate Los Angeles’ first berth in the Stanley Cup finals since 1993. Phoenix was better from the opening faceoff, dominating an opponent that had been on an 11-1 run through the postseason. Doan scored on a power play in the first period and on a deflected shot in the second, silencing the crowd at the Kings’ first loss since April 18. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Phoenix. Los Angeles is 7-0 on the road in the playoffs. Jonathan Quick stopped 19 shots with little help from his Los Angeles teammates, who

were shut out for the first time in the postseason while hitting a bump in what had been one of the most impressive playoff runs in NHL history. The Kings have reached the Cup final just once in 44 seasons of existence, but their worst game of the postseason prevented them from claiming just the second conference title in franchise history — and becoming just the second No. 8 seed to win three playoff rounds. The resilient Coyotes are no strangers to adversity after making the playoffs in three straight seasons without an owner or impressive fan support.

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee rubs on the baseball during the seventh inning of an interleague game with the Boston Red Sox on Sunday in Philadelphia. Red Sox won 5-1.

Beckett quiets Phils as Sox take series The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Josh Beckett pitched 7 2-3 strong innings and Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a three-run homer to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. Mike Aviles also homered and drove in two runs for Boston, which has won eight of 10 games overall after taking the final two of this three-game series. The only blemish for Beckett (4-4) was Juan Pierre’s sacrifice fly in the eighth that gave Philadelphia its only run. Adrian Gonzalez went 2 for 4 and now is 9 for 16 lifetime against Phillies lefty Cliff Lee. Lee (0-2), making just his sixth start of the season after spending time on the DL with a strained oblique, had his worst start of the year. In seven innings, he allowed five runs on nine hits — both season highs. He struck out six and walked one. Nationals 9, Orioles 3

WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg hit his first major league home run and struck out eight in five innings to carry the Washington Nationals past the Baltimore Orioles. Strasburg sent an 0-2 pitch from Wei-Yin Chen into the Baltimore bullpen in the fourth inning to put the Nationals ahead 5-3. After dusting off his home run trot and returning to the dugout, Strasburg responded to a curtain call by waving to the crowd of 41,918. The hard-throwing Strasburg singled and scored in the third inning, then followed a shot by Jesus Flores with one of his own in the fourth. Padres 3, Angels 2

SAN DIEGO — Pitcher Clayton Richard scored the winning run from first base on an error by fill-in left fielder Howie Kendrick with two outs in the 13th inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Angels in an unusual extra-inning game. Tigers 4, Pirates 3

DETROIT — Max Scherzer struck out 15 — the most by a Detroit pitcher in 40 years — and the Tigers rallied with three runs in the seventh inning to beat Pittsburgh. Scherzer (3-3) threw 115 pitches in seven innings and was done for the day when the Tigers came back from a 2-1 deficit while he was still the pitcher of record. Alex Avila hit a two-run single through a drawn-in infield to put Detroit ahead. Marlins 5, Indians 3

CLEVELAND — Josh Johnson twice worked out of jams to earn his second straight win and help Miami win an interleague series with Cleveland. Johnson (2-3) allowed one run and five hits over seven innings as Miami took two of three from the Indians and improved to 14-5 in May, the best record in the majors this month. Braves 2, Rays 0

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tim Hudson scattered four hits over 7 2-3 innings and David Ross homered to lead Atlanta over Tampa Bay. Hudson (3-1), who is 8-1 overall against the Rays, retired nine in a row before Ben Zobrist opened the fourth with


a line single to right.

Athletics 6, Giants 2

SAN FRANCISCO — Collin Cowgill drove in the go-ahead runs and scored in a home plate collision with pitcher Tim Lincecum, and the Oakland Athletics snapped an 11-game losing streak in San Francisco with a victory over the Bay Area rival Giants. Brewers 16, Twins 4

MILWAUKEE — Jonathan Lucroy homered twice and had a career-high seven RBIs, and Zack Greinke pitched six strong innings to lead Milwaukee over Minnesota. Rangers 6, Astros 1

HOUSTON — Colby Lewis allowed four hits in eight-plus innings and drove in two runs, and Texas took a five-run lead in the first inning before coasting to the win over Houston.

Sandbagging angers fans at all-star race

Dufner’s 25-foot putt on 18 clinches Nelson

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.C. — It didn’t take teams very long to figure out their best shot at winning the All-Star race would be in the first 20 laps. What few predicted, though, was that the new format would encourage drivers to take it easy for portions of Saturday night’s $1 million race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Now fans are upset winner Jimmie Johnson essentially sandbagged for 60 or so laps before turning it up for a final charge to his third All-Star race victory. “Everybody knew if you could win that first segment, you could control the night,” said Johnson, who indeed won the first of four 20-lap segments. Under the format for this year’s race, the winners of each of the first four 20-lap segments lined up 1-through-4 for the mandatory trip down pit road. Once there, it was a race to simply be the first drivers to get back on the track for the final 10-lap sprint to the finish. So Johnson claimed the first segment, then faded to the back of field for next three segments. Matt Kenseth joined him at the rear after winning the second segment, and although Brad Keselowski was reluctant to follow the same strategy, he also went to the back when his team insisted it was the best strategy after the third segment. “Obviously there was a debate whether or not to run hard or conserve your stuff,” Keselowski said. “I hate conserving race cars. They’re meant to run hard. I just wanted to make sure that everybody on my team was on the same plan, and they were. So I’ve got to do

what they tell me.” It wasn’t all that popular for race fans, who seemed nonplussed by the three-wide racing through the pack that accentuated several of the opening segments. Instead, many seemed annoyed that Johnson, Kenseth and Keselowski had no incentive to race once they won their segments. Johnson, who claimed “when the rules came down, every crew chief in the garage area realized the importance of that first segment,” was reluctant to criticize the latest All-Star race format. It was the eighth change to the format since the race was created in 1985. “That’s going to be tough for me to knock the system after how our night went because it just worked out exactly how we’d hoped,” he said. But NASCAR has long touted its All-Star event as the only one in professional sports where the participants actually try hard, and Saturday night managed to discredit that theory. It was clearly difficult for runner-up Keselowski, who made a solid attempt at sugarcoating the strategy of just riding around at the back of the field. He didn’t seem all that believable, though, following his second-place finish. Stenhouse wins Nationwide race NEWTON, Iowa — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led for 209 of 250 laps and won the NASCAR Nationwide race at the Iowa Speedway on Sunday, his third straight win on Iowa’s short oval. Stenhouse, who won both races in Iowa in 2011, picked up his third victory of the season

and extended his lead in the points chase to 28 over Elliott Sadler, who was second. Michael McDowell was third, followed by rookie Austin Dillon and Kurt Busch. The Sprint Cup event in Charlotte on Saturday kept all Cup regulars except for Busch out of the field. Busch briefly took the lead after starting in the back and saved a top-five finish after being bumped by McDowell on the last lap. Danica Patrick failed to finish for just the second time this season. Travis Pastrana’s third career Nationwide race ended roughly 50 laps from the finish because of an electrical issue. Stenhouse said he didn’t know why he’s been so good at Iowa. Having the best car in the field always helps, and there

was little doubt that the No. 6 Ford was far and away the dominant machine on Sunday. Carpenter makes Indianapolis 500 INDIANAPOLIS — Ed Carpenter has become the 33rd driver to qualify for the Indianapolis 500, assuring race officials they will have a full field for the May 27 race. Minutes later, Charlie Kimball became the fourth driver to crash on the 2.5-mile oval in two days. When Kimball’s car got below the white line going through the first turn on the hot, slick track, the back end of the car spun and took Kimball into the outside wall. The car bounced off, then slid down the track and rolled to a stop on the inside of the first turn.

IRVING, Texas — Jason Dufner made a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday for a onestroke victory in the Byron Nelson Championship, his second victory in four weeks. The winning putt wrapped up a closing 3-under 67 for an 11under 269 total, one ahead of Dicky Pride. Dufner got his first PGA Tour victory at New Orleans on April 29, then took a week off to get married. He also led alone by one stroke after the second and third rounds at the TPC at Four Seasons course. Pride, whose only PGA Tour victory in a 20-year professional career came in 1994, was at 10 under with a par-saving 22-foot putt at No. 18 after hitting his drive into the water. Moments later, Dufner made a putt that was only a few feet longer but on virtually the same line as the one Pride made to finish his round of 67. J.J. Henry, who had an early hole-in-one, was in the lead at 11 under after consecutive birdies at Nos. 15 and 16, overcoming a bad tee shot on the first and a greenside bunker on the second. But Henry, in the final group with Dufner, hit his tee shot at the par-3 17th over the green. The former TCU star lost the lead with a double bogey after a 4-foot putt slid just outside the cup. After watching Henry’s meltdown, Dufner made a tap-in par at No. 17 and then hit a big drive on No. 18 in the middle of the fairway. He hit his approach to the middle of the green, avoiding a playoff with the long putt and joining Hunter Mahan as the only two-time winners this season. Pride had made a 13-foot birdie putt at No. 17. Joe Durant, who was the final alternate added to the Nelson

field, shot a 65 to finish in a tie for third at 271 with Henry (68), Marc Leishman (66) and rookie Jonas Blixt Dufner (66). Phil Mickelson, making his first Nelson start in five years, had four consecutive birdies on the front nine and went on to a round of 66 to finish four strokes back. He tied for seventh with Ken Duke, who also had a string of four birdies in a row in his own 66. While Henry and Dufner were playing the 17th hole, Pride drove his tee shot at No. 18 left into the water. After his drop, Pride hit his approach to 22 feet and made that par-saving putt to remain at 10 under, letting out a scream when the ball dropped into the hole. Munoz wins Sybase after slow-play controversy GLADSTONE, N.J. — Azahara Munoz beat Candie Kung 2 and 1 on Sunday to win the Sybase Match Play Championship, a title that was set up when Morgan Pressel was penalized for slow play while in control of their semifinal match. It was the first LPGA Tour win for Munoz, but this one is going to be shrouded in controversy. It also will put more focus on pace of play in golf. Pressel appeared to take a 3-up lead with a par at the 12th hole at the Hamilton Farm Golf Club. But before she could tee off on No. 13, tour official Doug Brecht informed her that she had violated the tour’s pace of play rule and lost the hole, dropping her lead to 1-up and changing momentum. Munoz, a former Arizona State star from Spain, then rallied to beat Pressel 2 and 1.

Picking your way to a healthy lineup THERE IS A series of books out there based on a column in Men’s Health magazine called “Eat This, Not

That.” The idea is to promote healthy eating by pointing out more nutritious alternatives to calorie-bomb foods. For example, take a chilibacon double cheeseburger. The book would tell you all the horrible (yet tasty) bad things about the meal, and steer you toward healthier fare. Like turkey burgers in an avocado vinaigrette sauce with a side of air. Yummmm. (Sarcasm alert.) So, in the sprit of the “Eat This, Not That” series, let’s take a look at some players who are “unhealthy” for your rosters, and replace them with the fantasy equivalent of a 400 calorie low-fat, string cheese pizza. It’s called “Pick This Guy, Not That Guy.” Catchy, huh?

his former self. He can still score some runs, but his on base percentage is abysmal, and he’s never met a high fastball he F A N T A S Y B A S E B A L L didn’t like to swing and miss at. PICK THIS GUY: Jed Lowrie, NOT JOE MAUER, C, SS, Astros. Houston may not be TWINS: He may have the most playoff material, but their ofdandruff-free hair in baseball, fense isn’t completely terrible. but Mauer is still trying to live And Lowrie bats fifth in that up to his 2009 season -- 28 HRs, lineup, so he’ll have some run96 RBIs.

To compare Fred still living on royalties from “I’m Too Sexy.” Mauer can the “tale of the tape” -- Lowrie: hit for average, but hasn’t been 15 runs, 5 HRs, 16 RBI, .274 AVG. and a .360 OBP. Rollins: producing a lot of power or 22 runs, 1 HR, 7 RBI, .227 runs. Instead of Mauer, you should AVG., .293 OBP. PICK THIS GUY: J.P. ArenciNOT ARAMIS RAMIREZ, bia, C, Blue Jays.

But Seager’s doing quite again, but Rollins is a shell of nicely, thank you, leading the


team in the power categories and putting up a more-thanrespectable stat line: .292, 5 HRs, 26 RBI. As an added bonus, he’s eligible at 2B in many leagues. NOT TIM LINCECUM, SP, GIANTS: I have to admit some bias in this pick, as Lincecum is currently an albatross around the neck of my fantasy pitching staff. He’s supposed to be one of baseball’s “elite,” but a 5.77 ERA and 1.56 WHIP doesn’t even come close to “Ahhh, he’s all right.” Unless you’re on a slow-pitch sandlot team with six players a side and right field is out. PICK THIS GUY: James McDonald, SP. Pirates. Through Saturday night, both McDonald and Lincecum had started eight games. McDonald had more strikeouts (50 to 48), an ERA over 3 runs better (2.68 to 5.77), and a great WHIP (1.01 to 1.56). A weak Pirate offense may keep his win total down, but those other numbers are top-of-the-rotation stuff. * Stats are current as of Saturday night.

“My other two at bats she threw me the same thing,” Roberts said. “When I saw it, I knew I had it.” And Roberts shot it into a gap between the outfielder, who were shading her to pull. That was all the support Rubasky would need. The senior twice retired eight in a row, and threw 60 of her 77 pitches (78 percent) for strikes. “She was awesome. She was on today,” Roberts said of Rubasky. “She was really focused, and our defense was really good agains today.” “She hit her spots and she knows we have her back no matter what,” Gola said.

“I took off fast,” said Porfirio, who has won more local races than any other female so far this season. “I thought I had an unusually fast first mile. I even wondered if the first mile was measured correctly. At the turnaround (just off Old River Road at the Martz Bus Terminal) I could see that there was another female near me – but not so close that I felt threatened. So I figured if I stay with the pace I was at, I would be fine. So I stayed with that pace to the finish.” The race started and finished on River Street, just down the road from the Jewish Community Center. The course is flat and fast.

Above-average temperatures are in our forecast for this week along with a few days of rain. We will see increasing clouds this morning. Skies will turn mostly cloudy, and we will have the chance for showers throughout the day. Rain will stay with us on Tuesday and Wednesday, but it will be light scattered showers across the area. On Thursday, we will see some sun return, but there will be the chance for a stray shower. We could have a few passing showers on Friday and Saturday with partly cloudy skies. Sunday looks like it will be very nice with plenty of sun and temperatures in the 80s. Michelle Rotella

Community Counseling Services helps food assistance program Clients and staff of Community Counseling Services’ Mental Retardation Day Development (MRDD) program are volunteering their time to support the Commission on Economic Opportunity’s Backpack Program. The program is an emergency food assistance program designed to help disadvantaged children in local schools obtain healthy foods on a weekly basis. MRDD clients help sort and bundle donated foods for distribution to Ross Elementary School in Sweet Valley. The school places the bundled foods into backpacks that are distributed to needy school children. Placing the food in a backpack helps remove the embarrassment a child might experience by carrying home a bag of groceries. Participants, from left, first row: Christine Cortese, Jenkins Township; Nichole LaFratte, West Wyoming; and Ann Priebe, Wyoming. Second row: Dominic Conte, Parsons; Mary Ann Pepsis, MRDD program specialist, Swoyersville; Eric Grohol, Wilkes-Barre; and Stacey Williams, MRDD program director, Kingston.

Groom’s mom turns maid of honor’s bridal shower into a mob scene Dear Abby: I agreed to be maid of honor at my best friend’s wedding. I am now planning her bridal shower and just received the guest list from her mother and the groom’s mother, “Alicia.” Alicia has given me the names of about 30 guests and says there are more people she wants to invite. Abby, the entire list will amount to nearly 70 guests! I thought showers were supposed to be for close friends and family only. Would it be out of line to suggest to Alicia that if she wants to invite that many people, she should give a separate shower? — Overwhelmed in New York

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Overwhelmed: You and the groom’s mother are not on the same wavelength. She may be trying to repay social obligations, while you are simply trying to perform your attendant’s duties. Because Alicia is so insensitive, you must tell her firmly the maximum number of guests you can accommodate at the shower. It would not be out of line to suggest that she ask one of her friends to also host one. If she insists on inviting everybody to your shower, ask her to share the expenses with you.


Dear Abby: Please pass along this suggestion to your readers: If you’re separated or getting a divorce, use discretion if you’re tempted to talk about it. The more you bad-mouth the person you are divorcing, the more people will reject you. It may not seem fair, but it’s true. People will “forget” that you never complained before and say, “I didn’t know she was so vindictive. No wonder he left!” You will do yourself additional damage by ranting to co-workers. You’re paid to work, not talk. Your coworkers are paid to work, not listen. Do not confide your problems to your customers. They will stop doing business with you because they’re afraid of being trapped by your pain. If you must vent your anger and


disappointment, do it in a support group. The members will empathize; others haven’t a clue and don’t care. A support group also can give you practical advice about lawyers, finances and emotional help. Your pain will linger for months, but the patience of your friends and co-workers will fade. My co-worker managed to bore all of us. She quit therapy to spend the money redecorating her home to “erase him from her life.” Not only did she lose all sympathy in that shortsighted, shallow act, she also lost precious time she should have spent healing and becoming strong and independent. It’s strange. People facing death don’t disrupt other people’s lives the way those with broken vows do. — Tired of Listening in Maryland

Dear Tired: You make a strong case for keeping separate one’s personal and professional lives. Friends and coworkers are important to anyone experiencing the trauma of divorce, but I agree that an outside source — such as a support group — can provide practical, impartial advice because the members can empathize without becoming emotionally involved. Those who act this way may be looking for a sympathetic ear, but they usually wind up with a cold shoulder. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll experience the fluidity of time. You’ll place your precious attention on the things that really warrant your focus, and suddenly time stretches or contracts to accommodate what you want to accomplish. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Conversation may not flow as easily as usual. Have a “go to” statement that you know will carry you over the bumps. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Self-care doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant. Simply taking a walk, reading what you like or talking to your favorite friend could lift your spirits more effectively than anything you could buy. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re so cozy in your private world lately that sometimes you have to remind yourself to socialize. You know who your favorite people are, so why not make an effort to be around them more often? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll find that you take joy in life and in just being yourself, even when things go wrong. The slight blips pass quickly and add interest to your day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Seeing a project through to completion and knowing you have accomplished something with your time will bring you a contented, if not proud, feeling. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Take a break from the more serious forces of a relationship, and delight in minor goals such as making the other person smile.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may set out to find the treasure in another, and find it you will, but the real surprise is when you uncover an equally rich trove inside of you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s time to either pursue a course of action with great intention, or give it up. There is no in-between stage that will yield results. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will make peace with someone eventually. And though you may not bridge the gap entirely today, with consistent effort, relationships are mended. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You usually don’t realize the effect you have, so it may surprise you to know how influential you are. You’ll sit back and enjoy what unfolds, and people around you take this as a cue to loosen up. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). While you like to stay busy, there are parts of your work that leave you so unsatisfied that you wonder whether you should give it a break. It’s not a bad idea to throw up your hands. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 21). It’s a gilded year: You’ll appreciate the value and admire the beauty of your own experience. Your dearest associations get even closer because you step up to a new level of awareness. Your talents find new expressions in July. Travel is featured in August. In October, you’ll organize groups and increase your earnings. Capricorn and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 11, 49, 31 and 16.
