Pittston residents concerned about alleged cancer cluster believe they hit another wall.

PITTSTON – Organizers described it as an unprecedented gathering of state and local officials, but many residents concerned about an alleged cancer cluster in Pittston felt they only hit another wall following a meeting with the federal Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies Tuesday. The EPA hosted a public “I wasn’t meeting at the satisfied Martin L. Mattei Middle with what School on New they had Street about the Butler to tell Mine Tunnel, a me.” water drainage Chuck tunnel for the Menichini abandoned Resident mines below Pittston and an EPA Superfund site that in 1979 and 1985 discharged thousands of gallons of oil and chemicals into the Susquehanna River. Residents in the neighborhood around Carroll Street and Mill Street, led by Carroll Street resident Chuck Menichini and his family, have alleged that industrial waste dumped illegally in the tunnel in the 1970s has created a cancer cluster in their neighborhood. “I wasn’t satisfied with what they had to tell me,” he said after the meeting. Menichini, 58, was diagnosed in February with large B-cell lymphoma. His physician told him the cancer has an environmental cause, typically exposure to the chemical benzene; that led him and his family to survey his neighbors about cancer. The survey and some of its preliminary findings – three or four cases of esophagus cancer within a block radius, cancer striking in 14 of 16 houses on one block – caught the attention of the area’s representatives in Harrisburg and Washington, who called on the EPA to address the concerns of Pittston residents. The gathering brought togeth-



Residents unhappy with EPA answers


Same number of travelers expected over Memorial Day weekend; airlines get boost.

Fewer Wilkes-Barre area motorists will hit the roads for the Memorial Day weekend compared to last year’s holiday, but more will fly the friendly skies. According to projections released Tuesday by travel club AAA, 37,796, or about 10 percent of the area’s residents, will travel 50 miles or more between Thursday and Monday. That’s just about the same number that did so last Memorial Day. Though there is no overall travel increase projected, Jana L. Tidwell, a spokeswoman for AAA Mid-Atlantic, said the rising gas prices, coupled with the high number of people that traveled last year, led to the travel projections being static. She said that in this case, flat is good. “They still want to travel,” Tidwell show. Even with gas prices hovering between $3.75 and $4 locally, people are still planning to travel. She said people dealt with $4 per gallon gas prices in 2008 that severely curtailed travel. In 2009, the recession also kept numbers down. Last year, locals traveling at least 50 miles for Memorial Day skyrocketed 14 percent. And to remain that high this year, with the high gas prices, is a positive sign, Tidwell said. “Despite near record-setting gas prices this spring, 70 percent

Ruth HR kiosk on W-B’s agenda Memorial for Artillery Park homer up for vote. Nuisance ordinance also to be mulled. By STEVE MOCARSKY

WILKES-BARRE – City council on Thursday is expected to give approval for the erection of a kiosk commemorating the local accomplishment of a baseball legend in the city some 85 years ago. Among the items on council’s work session agenda on Tuesday was a resolution giving the Babe Ruth Commemorative Fund approval to install an educational information kiosk in Artillery Park, the spot where, on Oct. 12, 1926, the legendary baseball player is said to have hit his longest home run. Councilman Tony Thomas Jr. said that enough money has been raised for the project and, after council gives approval, it should be about three months before a commemoration ceremony. In the meantime, materials must be ordered, and concrete poured for the foundation. “It’s going to look like a threesided bus stop, but without the roof. There will be a picture and an explanation of how it all happened,” Thomas said. Thomas thanked City Clerk Jim Ryan for all his work on the project. Council on Thursday also is expected to vote on amending the city’s nuisance ordinance to authorize the Health and Police departments to address abandoned vehicles on private property. The current ordinance only authorizes the departments to address abandoned vehicles on public streets. According to the ordinance, the vehicle owner can be fined up to $1,000. The property owner or occupant or vehicle owner will have five days after receiving notice of violation to bring the vehi-

The board responded in a statement that called its efforts an “unmitigated success.” “After this grand jury met for more than two years, there were

no arrests, no presentments, no indictments,” board chairman Greg Fajt said. “They found no criminal activity because there was, in fact, no criminal activity to be found.” The grand jury recommended that an outside agency conduct annual audits and inspections of the gaming board and said clear rules are needed to prevent board members from applying for or holding slots licenses. “The Pennsylvania Crimes Code and related criminal statu-

tes are inadequate to the job of combatting public corruption,” the Pittsburgh-based panel wrote. It said the board’s Bureau of Investigations and Enforcement should be established as an independent law enforcement agency and that all employees should have to wait four years after leaving employment before they could work for a gaming entity or any firm that represents or conducts business with a gaming entity.

Not guilty plea in husband’s death Pre-trial hearing tentatively on for July for Josephine Werkheiser in 2007 shooting. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A Ross Township woman charged with the shooting death of her husband in July 2007 pleaded not guilty to a related charge Tuesday. Josephine Werkheiser, 56, of Creekside Lane, appeared in Luzerne County court for a formal arraignment before Judge Williams Amesbury, where she entered the plea. Amesbury tentatively set a pretrial hearing for July and said he will schedule any other court proceeding after hearing from attorneys that day. In March, Amesbury ordered

Werkheiser’s case to be sent to a district magistrate for a preliminary hearing after her attorneys, William Ruzzo Werkheiser and Cheryl Sobeski Reedy, had withdrawn a motion to determine their client’s competency. Werkheiser had previously avoided a trial because a county judge ruled she was incompetent to stand trial. Her mental health status was reviewed on a regular basis, and in October, the Norristown State Hospital said Werkheiser is able to work with her attorneys and proceed with her case. Amesbury then ordered the preliminary hearing for prosecutors to again present evidence to

determine if there is enough evidence to proceed with the case. A hearing had been scheduled before District Judge John Hasay, but Werkheiser waived her right to that hearing on April 26, sending the single count of homicide back to county court. Werkheiser had been charged with the shooting death of her husband, Charles Werkheiser, sometime between July 23 and July 29, 2007. Investigators allege Werkheiser shot her husband once in the head while he was sleeping because she suspected he was having an affair. Police say Werkheiser then shot herself in the head with a .22caliber handgun. She removed all her bloody clothing, took a bath and stayed in the home for several days, court records say.

West Side CTC deadlocks on sports cut Joint operating board may look at fewer teachers or slashing other programs. By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

PRINGLE – Sports weren’t eliminated – yet – but something has to come out of the West Side Career & Technology Center budget, and that could mean fewer teachers, as well as cuts to other programs, a school official said Tuesday evening. “When we were putting this together, educational cuts were at the bottom of the list to be considered,” Administrative Director Elizabeth Ellis said. “Now, we’re going to have to consider them.” Her comments came after the school’s joint operating committee deadlocked 7-7 on a vote on the proposed $6.1 million tech school budget, which would have eliminated all school sports. Board members voting against the budget indicated they were doing so because it cut all sports programs, prompting board member Barry Williams to pro-

pose that Ellis draft up alternative budgets that keep the same bottom line. “People were voting against eliminating sports and I respect that,” Williams said, “But we need a budget that reflects the reality of the economics of our time.” Williams blamed budget cuts at the state level for the “hard decisions” facing the board, stating the school must consider what needs to be done to preserve the school in the face of a “deluge of disasters…put on us by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” Voting in favor of the proposed budget that did not include funding for sports were Wyoming Valley West representatives Williams, Gordon Dussinger and John Gill, as well as Dallas representatives Catherine Wega, Karen Kyle and Russ Bigus and Northwest Area representative Michael Pegarella. Opposing the budget were John Bolin, John Marianacci and Dave Alberigi from Wyoming Area, Mark Kornoski and Butch Rossi from Lake-Lehman and Gerald Conger and Peter Lanza

from Northwest Area. The deadlock was possible because the Lake-Lehman delegation is temporarily down to two, due to the recent death of one of its representatives. According to Solicitor Charles Coslett, the total cost for all sports programs is $109,863. The school fields baseball, softball, basketball and volleyball teams. A quiet audience that included a handful of parents and a number of students, many in Titan sports uniforms, watched the drama unfold but offered no comment during the meeting. Ellis said she will take a few days to come up with other options and get them to the board well in advance of the next meeting on June 27. In a related matter, Kornoski made a motion to open the position of athletic director, stating that when Athletic Director Dave Kashchak was given the option of making cuts to the program or getting rid of all sports, he said to get rid of the sports. The motion died for lack of a second. Kashchak declined to comment.

OK,” Duffy said in an April interview with Go Lackawanna. “I’m a policeman. I don’t know what else to do.” The complaint was followed by public outcry from the community against the union and even resulted in bumper stickers printed locally with the slogan, “We Love Chief Duffy.” Duffy said he was happy that the complaint was dismissed and expressed his desire to move forward.

“I want to move on now as an agency. I don’t want to worry about this. As far as I’m concerned, this is in the past, and that’s where it should stay,” Duffy said. Throughout the process, Duffy contended that the initial complaint would not stop his style of leadership of the department or his proactive policing policy, which he reiterated on Tuesday. Police Union President Detective Sgt. Bob Martin and union attorney Thomas Jennings did not immediately return requests for comment on Tuesday.

LOCAL Strong deliberations to continue Jury sent home Tuesday after an hour and a half of discussion. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE -- A Luzerne County jury will continue to deliberate the homicide retrial of James Strong today, after being sent home Tuesday after an hour and a half of discussion. Luzerne County Judge Thomas Burke sent the jury of nine men and three women home Tuesday after they notified the judge that they had two questions. It is unknown what the jurors asked the judge. Burke said deliberations will continue at 9 a.m. this morning. Strong, 59, is charged in the August 1983 shooting death of John Strock in a

wooded area in Dorrance Township. Prosecutors say Strong and his one-time co-defendant James Alexander were hitchhikers Strock picked up. Strong was convictStrong ed and sentenced to death in 1984, but that conviction and sentence were overturned by the state Supreme Court after learning Alexander lied about a deal he had with prosecutors. While leaving the Courthouse Tuesday, Strong was asked how he thought the trial was going. Strong replied that the second trial is “easier” than the first. Before the jury was sent to deliberate around 5:30 p.m., attorneys in the case presented their closing arguments. One of Strong’s attorneys, Brian Cor-

coran, said prosecutors based their case on the testimony of a liar, James Alexander, and the many versions of the stories he’s told since 1983. Alexander admitted his part in the killing of Strock by pleading guilty to thirddegree murder and being sentenced for his crimes. But that’s only because he had a secret deal worked out with prosecutors, Corcoran said, and a motive to help himself – a wife about to give birth to his child. Corcoran outlined the many stories Alexander told in interviews with police and Strong’s first trial, held in 1984. “He lied to 12 people in the (jury) box just like you,” Corcoran told jurors. “He got an airplane ride to Pennsylvania and a sweet deal. He lied. He perjured himself. He’s a murderer!” Corcoran also told jurors of the incom-

plete forensic evidence that couldn’t link his client to the murder. Assistant District Attorney Michael Melnick said what Corcoran failed to mention in his closing argument, and to defend during the entire trial, was the testimony of his own client. Although Strong did not testify during the trial Tuesday, he did testify at his original trial in 1984. “That testimony is chock full of lies,” Melnick alleged. Strong didn’t leave his home in Georgia because he was tired of his daily routine, Melnick said, he fled after committing robbery. “(Strong) had a choice – to act with mercy or malice,” Melnick said. “He made a decision to act with malice.” Melnick said Strong is responsible for Strock’s death and asked the jury to find him guilty of first-degree murder.

Request by Musto rejected





Committee OKs Baker bill

state Senate committee on Tuesday unanimously approved a bill A that will require natural gas drilling companies to post emergency information at drill sites and file response plans with local authorities. Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Twp., sponsored the measure, which is expected to go before the full chamber for a vote after the Memorial Day break. “We’ve got a lot of direct input from Baker the emergency responders and the gas companies, and we think this bill stands a really good chance of making it into law in the very near future,” Baker said after the committee meeting. She said the aim of the measure is to reduce response times during gas well emergencies by having detailed emergency-response plans on site and filed locally. It would require gas companies to designate unique GPS coordinates for each drilling site and register them with the Department of Environmental Protection and local authorities. GLEN LYON

Judge refuses former state senator’s request to suppress evidence in his corruption case. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

SCRANTON – A federal judge on Tuesday denied former state Sen. Raphael Musto’s request to suppress evidence in his corruption case, finding that prosecutors had presented sufficient evidence to support a search warrant that was the basis of a raid on Musto’s home. Musto’s attorneys, John Riley and William Murray, had sought to exclude evidence that was seized in the April 2010 raid, arguing the search warrant was faulty because prosecutors had failed to reMusto veal that Robert Mericle of Mericle First reported Construction, the at key witness against 6:27 Musto, had perp.m. jured himself in an timesleader unrelated tion case. The attorneys further argued that an FBI agent had mischaracterized the content of a conversation between Musto and Lew Sebia, an executive with Mericle’s company, that had been secretly recorded by Sebia. Musto,83,ofPittstonTownship,was indicted in November by a federal grand jury on charges he accepted $38,000 in cash, gifts and services from Mericle as a reward for influencing legislative acts that benefited Mericle’s companies. In a 13-page opinion filed Tuesday, U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo upheld the search. Caputo said the misstatements of the FBI agent highlighted by the defense were not material to the issue of whether prosecutors had sufficient probable cause for the search. Caputo said he believes other evidence, including the secretly recorded conversation between Sebia and Musto, provided sufficient probable cause to support the warrant. Caputo noted Musto was repeatedly asked by Sebia about a $25,000 cash payment that was allegedly made to Musto, but Musto never asked what money Sebia was referring to. “Instead, Musto walked Sebia down to the computer in his basement and showed him that the money was never deposited in the defendant’s bank account, allowing the inference that he was assuring Sebia that no paper trail existed,” Caputo said. Musto’s attorneys also argued the warrant was based on information that was too old. They said the last alleged payment to Musto was made in December 2006 and it was unlikely any evidence would still be in his home. Caputo disagreed, saying it is not uncommon for business records to be retained for several years.

Prison board accepts resignation of demoted guard Joseph Ciampi had admitted buying drugs from a fellow guard. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

WILKES-BARRE – The Luzerne County Prison Board on Tuesday accepted the resignation of a prison guard who had been demoted after he admitted purchasing drugs from a fellow guard. Joseph Ciampi resigned effective May 4, several weeks after he was demoted from corporal to correctional officer based on his connection to a drug case that ensnared several current and former prison employees. The board voted 6-1 to accept the resignation, with Controller Walter Griffith casting the lone dissenting vote. Griffith said after the meeting he believed Ciampi should have been fired in-

stead of being allowed to voluntarily resign. That would have precluded Ciampi from collecting unused sick and vacation time he had accumulated. Griffith said the exact amount of money Ciampi will collect has not been confirmed, but it’s in the $2,000 range. Ciampi, a 21-year veteran of the prison, was implicated, but not charged, in connection with a drug investigation that led to charges earlier this year against prison guards Jason Fierman and Chris Walsh and former correctional officer Kevin Warman and John Carey. According to an arrest affidavit in that case, Ciampi admitted he purchased cocaine from Walsh at least four times between 2008 and 2009. Based on that, Ciampi voluntarily accepted the demotion as part of an agreement that was approved by the prison board last month. Commissioner Maryanne Petrilla,

president of the prison board, on Tuesday said Ciampi later decided to resign rather than continue on as a correctional officer. Griffith said he understands Ciampi was not charged with a crime, but believes his admission to purchasing drugs was a sufficient basis to terminate him. “We have zero tolerance for drugs. Anyone who does that stuff should be terminated,” Griffith said. “He took a demotion and quits two weeks later. Why not fire the guy and not give him the benefits?” In other news, the board : • Unanimously voted to accept the resignation of prison guards Christopher Mitchell and Michael Chonka. Neither of those men were connected to the drug case. • Voted 6-1, with Griffith dissenting, to approve the retirement of John Rentko, who headed the prison’s kitchen.

dental office near the family’s home to watch a search team. At one point, a dog identified possible human remains, prompting eight searchers to dig frantically, but they came away with nothing. Burns was weary but composed. Her daughter — the boy’s aunt — sobbed next to her. “We’ve already checked out the morgue,” Burns said. “I’ve called 911 a million times. I’ve done everything I can do. He was so light and little. He could be anywhere.” Also Tuesday, the National Weather Service announced that the twister that crippled Joplin was an EF-5, the strongest rating assigned to tornadoes, with winds of more than 200 mph. Scientists said it appeared to be a rare “multivortex” tornado, with two or more small and intense centers of rotation orbiting the larger funnel.

It was the deadliest single twister since the weather service began keeping official records in 1950 and the eighth-deadliest in U.S. history. Authorities said an estimated 750 people were hurt and an unknown number were still unaccounted for, but authorities were reluctant to declare a specific number. “That does not mean they are injured or deceased. It means that loved ones are not aware of their whereabouts,” City Manager Mark Rohr said, explaining that many had probably left the area without telling family members. Another top job was testing the city’s tornado sirens to make sure they were operable ahead of another round of potentially violent weather starting Tuesday evening and expected to last into today in some places. Emergency officials warned jittery residents well in advance of the test. David Imy, a meteorologist at the federal government’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said conditions were ripe



for severe thunderstorms, including tornadoes, in parts of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Kentucky and Tennessee, as well as nearly all of Oklahoma. Throughout the search efforts, new reports emerged of clusters of victims: 11 people dead in a nursing home, three bodies found in an Elks Lodge. The tornado tossed three vehicles into the Greenbriar nursing home and left nothing more than a 10-foot section of an interior wall standing. On the night of the twister, the Joplin Elks lodge had been scheduled to host its weekly bingo game. “If that had been two hours later, there could have been 40 or 50 people in there,” said Chris Moreno, a hospital lab technician coordinating an outdoor triage center. Jasper County Emergency Director Keith Stammer said the scope of the destruction was making it difficult to account for people affected by the storm. He suggested that many survivors, with nowhere to go, left Joplin for Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma

or other parts of Missouri. “There’s a lot of confusion, a lot of inability for folks to communicate,” he said. Authorities also announced a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., with only residents and emergency workers allowed inside the disaster zone. People in the Joplin area and

beyond have turned to online social networks to find family members missing since the tornado or to learn about the plight of survivors. Multiple Facebook pages created since the tornado are filled with requests for information about specific people who have not been heard from since Sun-

day. Some pages include photos of the missing. Other posts share the news about Joplin residents who are alive and well. Several social-networking efforts specifically focused on finding information about Will Norton, a teenager who vanished on his way home from his high school graduation ceremony. More than 10,000 people have supported the “Help Find Will Norton” community page on Facebook, and Twitter users were tweeting heavily about the missing teen. Family members told The Associated Press that Norton and his father were still on the road when the storm hit. Mark Norton urged his son to pull over, but the teen’s Hummer H3 flipped several times, throwing the young man from the vehicle, likely through the sunroof. The elder Norton was hospitalized. The tornado damage was “like taking a mower through tall grass. That’s what it looks like,” said state Sen. Ron Richard of Joplin, who flew over the area.

Mubarak to go on trial


gypt’s prosecutor general Tuesday ordered former President Hosni Mubarak put on trial on charges of corruption and conspiring in the deadly shootings of protesters during the uprising that ousted him, a stunning step against a leader whose power was nearly unquestioned for three decades. The announcement that Mubarak would face a criminal court grants a major demand of Egyptians who have threatened a second revolution amid growing worries about the slow pace of change under the country’s new military rulers. The charges could carry the death sentence, said the prosecutor-general spokesman Adel el-Said. It would be the first time an Arab leader is sent to trial solely by his own people in modern history.


NATO bombing intensifies

The Obama administration reached out Tuesday to the Libyan rebels and said Moammar Gadhafi would “inevitably” be forced from power as the U.S.-backed NATO coalition launched a withering bombardment on the Libyan leader’s stronghold of Tripoli. The NATO airstrikes struck in rapid succession shortly after midnight, setting off more than 20 explosions in the most intensive bombardment yet of the Libyan capital. Plumes of acridsmelling smoke rose from an area around Gadhafi’s sprawling Bab alAziziya compound in central Tripoli. A U.S. official warned the Libyan ruler that the pace of the attacks will intensify. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said, “I think we want to underscore to Gadhafi that the foot is not going to come off the gas pedal,” adding, “leaving is in his best interests and the best interest of the Libyan people.” The U.S. administration bolstered the standing of the rebel National Transnational Council, calling it a “legitimate and representative and credible” body and extending an invitation Tuesday for it to set up a representative office in Washington — though the overture stopped short of formal U.S. recognition. BAGHDAD

Car bomb blast kills four

Four people were killed Tuesday in the explosion of a bomb in a parked car in southwestern Baghdad, officials said. The blast in a Sunni neighborhood also injured 14 people. The information came from police and medical officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Violence has decreased dramatically in Iraq since the height of the war, but bombings and shootings still happen daily across the country, many against a sectarian background. WASHINGTON

Wrecked copter returned

The Pentagon says the wreckage of the U.S. helicopter destroyed in the military operation that killed Osama bin Laden was returned by Pakistan over the weekend. The helicopter was damaged during the May 2 raid at bin Laden’s hiding place in Pakistan, and U.S. commandos blew it up so it wouldn’t fall into the wrong hands. The U.S. demanded that Pakistan return the remains of the helicopter. Defense Department spokesman Col. Dave Lapan says it is now back in the United States.

WASHINGTON — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the U.S. Congress on Tuesday that he was willing to make “painful compromises” for peace with the Palestinians, for the first time explicitly saying some West Bank settlements would find themselves outside Israel’s final borders. But he tacked on a list of oftstated conditions that have been unacceptable to the Palestinians. A senior Palestinian official immediately rejected Netanyahu’s peace outline as a “declaration of war.” Speaking before a warmly receptive joint meeting of Congress that showered him with

more than two dozen sustained standing ovations, Netanyahu said Israel wants and needs peace but repeated his flat rejection of a return to what he called the “indefensible” borders that Israel had before the 1967 Mideast war. He also restated Israel’s refusal to repatriate millions of Palestinian refugees and their families to homes in Israel that they lost in fighting over the Jewish state’s 1948 creation. Netanyahu maintained anew that contested Jerusalem could not be shared with the Palestinians, who want the eastern sector of the holy city as capital of their hoped-for state. And he insisted that Israel maintain a long-term military presence on what would be the eastern border of a Palestinian state. “Israel will never give up its quest for peace,” Netanyahu said, adding that he is “willing to make painful compromises to achieve this historic peace.”

38 killed as Yemen uprising intensifies


By GREG BLUESTEIN Associated Press

ATLANTA — The U.S. Supreme Court decision that ordered California to drastically reduce its prison population to relieve severe overcrowding could encourage some states with bloated corrections systems to overhaul tough-on-crime policies that have led to stiffer sentences, law enforcement officials and experts said. The court’s 5-4 ruling on Monday concluded the reduction of about 33,000 inmates was needed to correct sometimes deadly lapses in medical care. Advocates of sentencing reform say California is an example of what could happen if states don’t adopt alternative programs for those convicted of drug offenses and non-violent crimes. “It should provide even more impetus for other states already working on sentencing and corrections reform to understand that if they don’t get our own acts in order, the federal courts will force them to do so,” said Douglas Berman, an Ohio State University law professor and expert on sentencing law. “This is yet more of a reason why these reforms are critical to head off these kinds of dramatic showdowns in court,” he said. The soaring costs of housing state inmates have already led lawmakers in at least 22 states — many of them already facing tight budgets — to consider unraveling years of policies designed to imprison more lawbreakers and keep them behind bars longer.

Floodwaters recede, but misery continues By ADRIAN SAINZ and HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Mississippi River’s crest has passed through the South, but the misery caused by flooding is far from over. As water recedes, residents from Tennessee to Louisiana face the task of gutting houses soaked in polluted water. Farmers will have to scrub their fields of sandy sludge before trying to use what’s left of the growing season. Shipping is likely to be restricted for weeks because of pressure on levees, and a close watch will be kept well into the summer on strained levees, bridges and other structures. “It’s falling now, slowly but

recognize Israel’s right to exist. In the West Bank, Nabil Shaath, a senior Palestinian official, called Netanyahu’s speech “a declaration of war against the Palestinians.” “This is an escalation and unfortunately, it received a standing ovation,” he said, noting that Netanyahu had rejected all key Palestinian demands on key issues like future borders, the competing claims of Jersualem and the fate of refugees. Israel, which enjoys strong bipartisan backing in Congress, has been rattled by President Barack Obama’s support for drawing the future borders of a Palestinian state and a Jewish state on the basis of Israel’s pre-1967 war frontiers. Local congressmen Rep. Tom Marino and Rep. Lou Barletta, both Republicans, on Tuesday reiterated their strong support for Israel and Netanyahu and voiced disapproval for Obama’s proposals.

I won’t know what to expect until I open the doors. Nobody knows until they open the door, then all hell breaks loose.” Some of the worst flooding has been along tributaries, and not all of the smaller rivers in Louisiana have hit their peak. The Atchafalaya River took on water diverted from the swollen Mississippi to spare more populous cities downstream, and it’s expected to rise several more feet this week in Cajun communities like Butte Larose.

As the battles developed, the heart of Yemen’s capital was turned into a no man’s land with heavy gunfire, mortar rounds and artillery fire from government forces. As the death toll mounted, Saleh called for a cease-fire. A statement from his office called on both sides to lay down their arms and asked the tribesmen to withdraw from government buildings they seized. As the death toll mounted, Saleh called for a cease-fire. Both sides traded blame for triggering the latest violence, further deepening the rifts and suggesting Yemen could be stumbling toward a potentially bloody showdown between well-armed tribal militias and pro-Saleh troops. A statement by opposition groups accused Saleh of “dragging the country to chaos.” The Interior Ministry, in turn, blamed the “bloodshed” on Sheik Sadeq al-Ahmar, the head of Yemen’s largest tribe, called the Hashid. Saleh has refused to step down despite three months of nearly nonstop protests calling for an end to his 32-year rule. He also snubbed attempts by Arab neighbors to negotiate his exit. But the decision by al-Ahmar’s tribe and others to take up arms sharply alters the balance. Yemen’s tribes are considered essential allies for any government to survive.

Suspect now in custody in W-B

In N.Y. jail on drug counts, Humphrey back in area to face 11 counts in alleged shooting. By EDWARD LEWIS

WILKES-BARRE – A 17-yearold boy charged with shooting two people nearly two years ago was recently released from a New York City prison to the custody of city police. Jquan Humphrey, no known address, is charged as an adult on several felony assault and firearm offenses for the alleged gunfire at a Hutson Street house on Aug. 22, 2009. Humphrey was jailed by New York City authorities on drug charges in October, according to New York State court records, and released to the custody of city police on May 11. He was arraigned on five counts of reckless endangerment, four counts of aggravated assault, and one count each of firearms not to be carried without a license and discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure. He remains jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $500,000 bail. According to the criminal com-

wounds. Mayhems was shot in her foot and Medley suffered a gunshot injury to his arm and chest, police said. Mayhems and Medley survived their injuries. Police learned there was a confrontation involving juveniles near Wilkes-Barre Boulevard and Hazle Avenue, and a second fight in the area of Hutson and Metcalf streets. When the second fight ended, two people chased Humphrey, also known as J-Money. Humphrey ran away and yelled he was going to get a gun and come back to “shoot y’all (expletive),” the criminal complaint says. Police said in the criminal complaint Humphrey arrived at the Hutson Street house with a firearm. When people on the porch realized Humphrey allegedly had a gun, they began to run inside the

house, including Mayhems, who was shot in the foot, police allege. Medley attempted to talk to Humphrey but after saying one or two words, Humphrey allegedly aimed the gun at him, firing a round hitting Medley in the arm and chest, according to the criminal complaint. Police allege they recovered two spent shell casings to a .40-caliber handgun and two projectiles on the porch of the house. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on June 22 in Wilkes-Barre Central Court.

The Associated Press

WILKES-BARRE – A woman testified Tuesday that Luis SuarezPerezcameatherwithaknife and raped her twice after nearly knocking her unconscious inside her South Wilkes-Barre residence. She claimed Perez, 29, of Grant Street, grabbed her hair and slammed her head against the floor several times, before holding the knife to her neck and sexually assaulting her on April 4. After the second alleged rape, she said, Perez smoked a cigarette and helped clean her face of blood. The woman was the only witness called to testify by Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts at Perez’s preliminaryhearinginWilkes-Barre Central Court. After nearly 30 minutes of testimony, District Judge Martin Kane determined Roberts established a case against Perez, sending two counts each of rape, aggravated assault and simple assault, and one count each of burglary, reckless endangerment and terroristic threats to county court. Kane denied modifying Perez’s bail of $50,000 based upon a request by his attorney, Mark Singer. Perez was charged April 7 after an investigation by city Detective Joseph Bitzer and Officer Liam Sweeney. The woman said she dated Perez for several years and ended

MIFFLINTOWN — Tornadoes swept through five counties in central and eastern Pennsylvania on Monday, the National Weather Service said Tuesday.

23, 2011, as a result of a fatal truck accident on I-80 near DuBois, Pa. Born in Scranton, he was a son of Rev. James A. Wert and the late Gene (Keller) Wert.

Once, when it was impractical for his parental family to acquire a dog, he took a neighbor’s hound into his bedroom and hid it under a throw rug. Later, when his mother entered his room, she noticed a wagging tail coming from underneath the rug and Dave’s little plan was foiled. Dave was blessed with a son, David Jr., from his former marriage to

HARRISBURG — Majority Republicans in the Pennsylvania House sent their state budget proposal to the Senate on Tuesday over the loud objections of Democrats during a marathon floor debate. The chamber voted 109-92 to approve a $27.3 billion spending plan and move the process closer to negotiations among legislative leaders and Gov. Tom Corbett in the weeks ahead. At least 74 members spoke on the bill, which Speaker Sam Smith, R-Jefferson, said might constitute a record. All Democrats, and two Philadelphia Republicans, voted against it. The vigorous debate divided the chamber sharply along party lines, with Republicans pushing their proposal as a responsible approach amid a trying economic climate and Democrats predicting dire consequences from wide cuts in government programs. The budget plan has the same total spending figure that Corbett, a Republican, has proposed. Like the governor’s budget, it also would not raise additional taxes.

The House GOP plan, however, dedicates less money to the Department of Public Welfare to restore money for education and makes other changes to specific line-items. Democrats listed cut after cut to education, health care, economic development, environmental projects, human services and other programs, saying the GOP proposal should be expanded to tap into a $500 million-plus windfall in recent state revenue collections. Minority Leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny, said there were tax breaks for rich corporations but none for the middle class. “Under this budget, the needy get punished and the greedy get rewarded,” Dermody said. Rep. Tim Briggs of Montgomery County was one of many to warn of harm to Pennsylvania hospitals, schools and universities. Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, said cuts to early childhood programs were “the epitome of penny-wise and pound foolish.” “Investments in our children over time pay for themselves and then go on to pay dividends,” Mundy said.

family life, stating her and her sisters learned to stand on their own two feet and help those around them stand on theirs. Baran’s face was full of emotion as her daughter’s letter was read to a full crowd. Later, she said the letter was a big surprise to her. In attendance with her, another daughter, Nora Reinhard from White Hall, said volunteering was a way of life for them. Baran said her volunteerism was a behavior learned from her parents. Alan Stout of The Times Leader was taken by surprise by being presented with the Best Special Event Award for Concert for a Cause. Rick Markham of Sallie Mae said Stout was inspired by a former colleague from a music magazine called Sound Check, Karen Greenberg Revit, who lost her battle with leukemia. He said Stout had a goal to raise $200,000 for charities. After 12 years of holding Concert for a Cause, Stout made it


happen. Markham said about three weeks ago, the latest event was held and raised the total to an amazing “just over $204,000.” “Thanks for rocking our world,” he said. Later, Stout said he was surprised and moved by the award. “I just thought the event was a mixer,” he said. United Parcel Service in Pittston was awarded the United Way of Wyoming Valley Corporate Award, for raising about $40,000 throughout the year for various charities. Accepting on behalf of the company, Bob McGuire, UPS Center manager, in Dupont, said the award honors the generosity of all of the employees. “The employees are outstanding,” he said. Also being honored for its small but generous employees, Franklin Security Bank received an award for volunteerism and charitable donations. Bryan-Smith said Franklin Security Bank only has 35 employees but raised $10,000 for the United Way Campaign and had an 89 percent employee participation rate. Other awards were given to:

Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania for the highest employee campaign; The Greater WilkesBarre Labor Council received the Sam Bianco Labor Award; Sordoni Construction Services Inc. and members of the NEPA Building and Construction Trades Council, Penn Millers Insurance Company and Berkshire Asset Management was honored for the most charitable funds raised in the highest employee per capita category; Pennsylvania Power and Light for the largest corporate gift; M&T Bank, First National Bank and Panzitta Enterprises for most funds raised in the highest corporate per capita category; Sallie Mae, Friedman Electric Supply Inc and Berkshire Asset Management for most new dollars raised; Teamsters Local 401 for highest number of leadership givers, GUARD Insurance, highest number of leadership givers; and Franklin Security Bank, for highest percentage of leadership givers. An individual award, Sarah and Anthony F. Kane Jr. Achievement Award, was given to David Meehan, a social studies teacher at Coughlin High School.

MARK JONES Editorial Page Editor PRASHANT SHITUT President/Wilkes-Barre Publishing Co.

Obama missess yet another chance to lead this country TWO WORLD LEADERS met at the White House last Friday. Two seemingly natural allies, with so much in common. One man represented a country whose people have been arguably the objects of more actionable prejudice over more years than any race of people in human history, a people who miraculously have risen time and again and have refused to be extinguished by hatred. The other man is a member of a race whose introduction to the “New World” was born in slavery and bigotry, a race of people who likewise have refused to be undone by human intolerance and ignorance. On Friday, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with United States President Barack Obama. Our president had yet another opportunity to hit one out of the park and yet once again struck out. The president’s betrayal of our ally Israel is paradigmatic of this administration. The gaffe was unnecessary and just the latest in a series of baffling missed opportunities by this young, inexperienced and enigmatic president. This year should be, and yet may still be, a time of rebirth in the Arab/Muslim Middle East. We are living through a time when the Arab youths of the Middle East are revolting against the autocratic governments that have not only spawned terroristic fundamentalism, but also have retarded the

ince it looks likely that the old Hotel Sterling will be razed, I believe the best use of the empty lot left behind would be a big-city style, downtown urban marketplace similar to The Reading Terminal Marketplace in Reading. This would be unique to NEPA, and a first for the entire region. This would be an excellent idea because unlike other proposals for that sight - i.e. condos, office building, hotel - the marketplace would serve the entire Wyoming Valley and be open to the public, whereas a hotel or condo project would only benefit a few. This marketplace would be a major boost in the effort to attract people to move to and reside downtown, and afford them a place downtown to purchase produce and groceries that otherwise they would have to travel a few miles to get. It is also ideally located between the two downtown college campuses, is in the heart of the office building area, is across the street from the new River Common and one block off of Public Square.

I envision a three-tier parkade with the marketplace taking up the entire ground level. It could be stylish with a clock tower that can be lit up at night and be a new icon of the W-B skyline (think of a smaller “Big Ben”). It would serve a dual purpose as the main parking area for the River Common across the street, which currently has no parking area. It would also be a good idea to include a pedestrian bridge linking the parkade to the River Common so nobody would have to cross busy River Street. I envision an outdoor eating area and plaza with tables and umbrellas where people can sit and enjoy lunch. The Reading Market Terminal in Philly hosts food


vendors from around the globe. You can grab lunch at a Thai, Amish, Mediterranean, Indian, Mexican stand name it, they have it. They have arts and crafts vendors, fresh flower vendors, fresh fish stands, butcher shops, cheese shops, spice shops, wine stands, bath works and candle stands, and of course the farmers market itself. It also hosts live entertainment and cooking demonstrations and workshops. Look up “Reading Terminal Market” on the computer if you’ve never been there. This marketplace would have the maximum positive impact for the downtown, it would be a regional attraction, and offer a year-round farmers market for downtown visitors, office workers, residents and students, plus it would complement the new River Common very well. This is our opportunity to turn a massive negative into a massive positive and add to the regional landmarks in the surrounding area, like the Market Street Bridge, the majestic courthouse, and the new River Common. That is my dream for downtown WilkesBarre. Bill Cook Wilkes-Barre

This mailing did not state who was sending and funding the communication as required, prompting Piazza to warn candidates that circulation of material without the necessary disclaimer was against the law. Caruso said he agrees the statement should be on all material but asserted that the county has no legal authority to confiscate material. Instead, he said the election law calls for a fine and possible jail time. County Election Board Solicitor Neil O’Donnell backed Piaz-

John Yudichak, Pittston Mayor Jason Klush and representatives of U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta and U.S. Sen. Robert Casey. More than 50 residents turned out. Mitch Cron, the EPA’s remedial project manager for the site, said unequivocally that “based upon the data, the public is not exposed to contamination from the Butler Mine Tunnel.” The tunnel, which drains into the Susquehanna River 350 feet upstream of the Fort Jenkins Bridge, became an EPA cleanup priority because truck drivers for the Hudson Oil Refining Corp., of Edgewater, N.J., in the 1970s illegally dumped between 1.5 and 2.7 million gallons of oil, liquid cyanide and carcinogenic petrochemicals into a borehole off State Route 315 leading into mined-out coal veins, and in 1979, and again following a hurricane in 1985, an oily liquid spewed from the tunnel into the Susquehanna River. Cron said though contaminants remain below ground in Pittston, the tunnel does not present a health risk because Pittston residents do not drink water sourced from the area and vapors in the tunnel are too low to warrant concern. Cron reviewed actions the EPA has taken at the site, and Dr. Steve Ostroff from the state Department of Health reviewed a survey of cancer rates in the Pitt-

of travelers plan to economize in other areas, rather than give up their travel plans. Some travelers will cut travel distances or use an alternate mode of transportation, leading to double-digit increases in air-travel, while others will stay at less expensive hotels and dine at less expensive restaurants,” said Jim Lardear, manager of public and government affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. Flying on increase Perhaps the most surprising projections AAA is making relate to the way people from this area will travel this weekend. About 3,000 Wilkes-Barre area residents, defined by AAA as living in Luzerne and Columbia counties, are expected to fly this weekend, an increase of 11.2 percent from last year’s holiday. “That air number is a huge jump,” Tidwell said. She said “air travel has been an attractive option to people looking to offset high gas prices this Memorial Day.” While flying as a family of three or more could be quite costly, Tidwell noted that 19 percent of area trekkers are traveling as a pair, which makes air a bit more cost-efficient. The local travel projections are on par with the national projections. Nationally, AAA projects 34.9 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home during the Memorial Day holiday weekend, a slight increase of 0.2 per-

za’s decision, saying Piazza could not “stand by idly” when he received complaints from people about illegal material being disseminated. “Leonard Piazza acted swiftly. He acted appropriately,” O’Donnell said. “In my view, he enforced the (election) code fairly on election day.” Piazza said he does not regret his decision. “I’m not going to have illegal campaign literature out there on election day. If we need to take it away, we’ll take it away,” Piazza said. Caruso also questioned Piazza’s published statement that he may ask the board to review all campaign material before it may be distributed, saying the government can’t “censor” political material. Piazza told the board he won’t be seeking advance approval of ston zip code, 18740, undertaken by the department, which found statistically significantly higher rates of four types of cancer, including a rate of thyroid cancer 71 percent above the state average, but nothing that would indicate a cancer cluster with an environmental cause. But some in attendance questioned the data used in the EPA and health department assessments – Ostroff said only 38 of 64 cases of cancer reported by the Menichini family in their own survey could be matched with the state’s cancer registry – and called for further testing. “Somebody from your department has to go do their job and go door-to-door,” Chuck’s son Chris Menichini said. “I’m not qualified, but why don’t you have somebody that is qualified go door-to-door.” Mike Tracy, of George Street, near Mill and Carroll Street, said both he and his wife had been diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. Mike survived and is in recovery; his wife did not. “When my wife and I both had the same kind of cancer, we said, there’s got to be something in the water; there’s got to be something in that area,” Tracy said. “Stand in my cellar and tell me there’s nothing wrong… My home has never been checked; I’ve been there 40 years, so how do I know? Come and stand there and tell me it’s OK.” Near the end of an hour-long question and answer session, resident Andrew Becker asked Cron simply whether the EPA would collect soil and water samples from Carroll and Mill Streets. When Cron responded that the EPA has no plan to do that, Becker said “well then you’ve wasted all our time,” and walked out. Though many did not get the



campaign material, but he will be asking the board to approve an amended campaign finance affidavit that must be completed by all candidates acknowledging the requirement for statements on their cards and signs. Caruso also told the board he was informed that two “blockers” were at Wilkes-Barre’s Kistler Elementary School. Blockers are campaign workers who make it difficult for voters to enter or exit polling places. Piazza sought and was granted an emergency court order tripling the buffer zone to 30 feet at that polling place. O’Donnell said such court orders are permitted by law, and Piazza said candidates or their campaign workers could have challenged the ruling on Tuesday if they disagreed with it. Piazza told the board he has repeatedly warned candidates



and campaign representatives that they must remain 10 feet from polling places, and some people were still “really on top of voters.” Violations didn’t just occur at the Kistler location on election day, he said. “I think we’ve done all we can to make that stop, yet it still continues. When people question why voter turnout is low, I think that’s one of the principal reasons why that is,” he said. The board will also be asked to approve a new posting at polling places informing voters that gratuities are not accepted at polling locations, Piazza said. The county has traditionally prohibited tips for election workers paid by the county. Piazza said some election workers were not aware of that restriction, and the county had an issue with a “couple of tip jars” during the primary.

be named the engineer for a new school the district was planning. The criminal complaint against Pasonick said the payment was made between January and June 2007, but does not identify the school district or provide any additional details. Sentencing guidelines for the offense call for a sentence of 18 to 24 months in prison, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office has agreed to recommend a lesser sentence based on Pasonick’s cooperation in investigating others. Pasonick spoke softly and at times appeared to be confused as Mannion asked a series of routine questions designed to ensure he understood the legalities surrounding his plea. The prominent businessman consulted several times with his attorney, Joseph Sklarosky Sr.,


General election voters will see some new names By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

While some candidates were knocked out of races in t week’s primaries, around 90 people will be added to the general election ballot, thanks to write-in votes. The Luzerne County Election Board approved the official roster of new write-in candidates and other election results Tuesday as part of the official certification. Most of the seats filled by writein candidates had no contenders on the primary election ballot. County Election Bureau Director Leonard Piazza and his staff hustled Tuesday to proof the list of write-in winners and to break three ties – including an unusual three-way tie in Sugar Notch. Three seats were open on Sugar Notch Borough Council. Democrat Regina Fillman received 108 votes, and the remaining three contenders on the Democratic ballot – Henry J. Mleczynski Jr., David Balakier and Patrick Dalton – each received 83. The men came to the election bureau Tuesday to break the tie. Piazza put balls numbered one, two and three into a container and indicated the person who picked the one with a three would not be on the November ballot. Mleczynski got the first pick because his name appeared first on the ballot, and he drew ball number one. Balakier picked ball two, knocking Dalton off. A coin toss was used to break a tie for a fourth Republican nomination for the Greater Nanticoke Area School Board. Candidates Janine Floryshak and Kenny James each received 245 votes. Piazza threw a coin into the air and asked Sugar Notch Mayor William Davis, who happened to be there as a witness, to call heads or tails for Floryshak. He picked tails, and a head came up, giving James the nomination. There was another tie in a Democratic write-in race for Forty Fort Borough Council between Robert M. Naples and Robert K. Craig. Naples won the coin toss, with Davis calling the coin. Final election results in all races have been posted on the county website at (click on departments/election bureau).

before answering several of the questions. Pasonick appeared to be particularly confused after Mannion advised him that he would have an opportunity to respond to a pre-sentence investigation report that would be prepared by the federal probation department. Pasonick noted that he had recently read a newspaper story that described how an attorney in another case had failed to file a reply to a pre-sentence report. Mannion assured Pasonick that Sklarosky would be sure to file a reply in his case. Pasonick was the principal owner of several engineering firms bearing his name, including Pasonick and Associates in Wilkes-Barre.

Two election-related complaints are still under investigation, Luzerne County Election Bureau Director Leonard Piazza said Tuesday. • An Avoca police officer had contacted Piazza on election day, May 17, claiming that county council candidate Mike McGlynn approached him at 10:45 a.m. and “asked me to go into the voting booth and pull his election ballot a few times to gain votes for him.” Piazza said the police officer said he told McGlynn his request was illegal and that he would not comply. The officer was not identified by Piazza. McGlynn, who did not secure a nomination, could not be reached for comment on several attempts. Piazza said he will refer the matter to the county district attorney’s office, though he may first offer McGlynn an opportunity to respond in writing. Piazza said he will also contact the police officer about his plans to forward the matter to the district attorney. • Piazza said he must receive a formal written complaint to continue investigating a verbal complaint about a mailing promoting eight Democratic county council candidates. The Working Families for Better Government contacted Piazza to complain about the mailing, which did not contain a statement on who was sending and funding the communication as required by law.

Houser said the government was prepared to present the school board member who would testify he took money from Pasonick. Houser said after the hearing he could not identify the board member or the district. The case is among dozens that have been filed by federal prosecutors as part of the Luzerne County corruption probe. Pasonick was previously identified by attorney Michael Butera as the person who paid a bribe to Butera’s client, William Maguire, a former Luzerne County Housing Authority member. Pasonick has not been charged in connection with that case. Sklarosky and Pasonick declined to comment following the hearing. Mannion permitted Pasonick to remain free pending sentencing, which will be scheduled following the completion of the pre-sentence report. Mannion directed that report be completed by July 18.








Tiger determined to play in Open

Despite being on crutches, Woods expects to begin training late next week. By DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer


Valley West’s Tommy Alexander fields a bunt to help keep the game scoreless through seven.

Spartans stifled in quarters

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Tiger Woods says he’ll be ready to go for the U.S. Open. Good thing for Woods there’s time to get healthy. The golfing great hasn’t hit a ball in about two weeks. Woods needs crutches and a walking boot for relief on his aching left leg. He won’t even start leg training until the end of next week.

But Woods expects to tee off at the U.S. Open June 1619 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. Woods “You just play through these things,” Woods said. “There’s a difference between being in pain and being injured.” That’s why Woods has shut himself down to prepare for the major. Woods is bothered by pain in his left knee, left Achilles’ tendon, tightening in his calf, and has a sore lower back. He says

doctors have not mentioned leg surgery. But he doubts he’ll play the Memorial next week in Dublin, Ohio. Woods said he’ll start training by the end of next week. How his leg responds will determine when he can start hitting balls again — all but ruling out the Memorial. “I’ve had four surgeries on it,” Woods said. “Obviously, it’s not what it was when I was little.” That means Woods would go to the U.S. Open with little competition, although this is nothing new for him. In 2008, he had arthroscopic surgery after the Masters and didn’t play again until the U.S. Open. Doctors dis-

covered a double stress fracture in his left tibia in the weeks before the major. Going against his doctor’s advice, Woods not only played the U.S. Open, he won it at Torrey Pines in a 19-hole playoff. Now, he says his left leg is not nearly as bad as it was then. His golf, however, is a different story. In the 11 tournaments Woods played before the U.S. Open, he won eight times, was runner-up twice and didn’t finish out of the top five. In the 11 tournaments before this U.S. Open, he has only five finishes in the top 10.

Dallas edges Tunkhannock for division title WILKES-BARRE – Same scenario, but different year and result. Although at times, it looked like the outcome would repeat last year’s. Dallas, though, used Katy Comitz’s basesloaded RBI single in the seventh to take the lead and then held off a Tunkhannock rally to post a 4-3 victory Tuesday in the Wyoming Valley Conference Division I West softball title game. The victory avenged last year’s 1-0 loss to Tunkhannock in the WVC Division I West championship game. It also gave Dallas (11-4) its third victory over Tunkhannock (10-5) this season and sixth in the last seven meetings over the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

“Dallas is like our nemesis,” TunkhanDALLAS nock coach John Keefe said. “We sort of bounce well. They’re a resilient TUNKHANNOCK bunch of kids.” The resiliency will be tested today as third-seeded Tunkhannock hosts No. 14 Holy Redeemer today in the first round of the District 2 Class 3A playoffs. Dallas gained the second seed with the win and arguably faces a bigger test Thursday with visiting 10th seed Wyoming Area, a team that defeated the Mountaineers a few weeks back. Mary Kate Osick started the game-winning rally in the seventh by drawing a one-


out walk. She went to third on Sarah Konopki’s single. Danielle Shaver was then hit with a pitch – the seventh player to be plunked during the game – to load the bases. Tunkhannock brought its infield in, but Comitz slipped a grounder through the hole at third and short to give Dallas a 4-3 lead. “Jamie (Hampsey) made a great pitch, and that girl chopped the ball between short and third,” Keefe said. “That’s the way it goes.” Unlike two other Dallas’ advantages during the game, Tunkhannock was unable to tie or win the game in its last at-bats. The Tigers, though, gave it a heck of a try. See DALLAS, Page 4B


Yankees’ Warren dominates By DAVE ROSENGRANT


The Yankees Kevin Russo dives back to first as the Indians Matt Hague waits for the ball in the fifth inning of Tuesday’s game.

MOOSIC – The Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees appear to be finding the perfect combination for stringing together victories. For the second straight day, SWB got a strong outing from its starter as righthander Adam Warren held Indianapolis to just three hits and one run in a 5-1 win during the school-day special game Tuesday morning at PNC Field. Warren’s performance followed Monday’s winner David Phelps who also pitched into the eighth. The first hit Warren allowed was by the first batter in the top of third when Dusty

Because Lance Armstrong is not an obnoxious jerk, maybe because he comes off as a genuinely likeable human being who champions noble causes like cancer research, perhaps because his athletic stardom comes in a sport most of us are ambivalent to — but probably mostly because the sporting public has simply grown numb to the uncomfortable truth that a whole lot of notable athletes are doping their way to fame and fortune—the news from a “60 Minutes” story that says the world’s greatest cyclist is a sophisticated drug cheat has been greeted with a mixed bag of indifference, sympathy and cynicism. Too bad, because that’s not the reaction he deserves. Armstrong has been using the old “Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?” defense for far too long and getting away with it. He clings to his story that he’s never tested positive for any illegal performance enhancers. But by now we all know that passing most PED testing these days is more of an evaluation of your intelligence than your bloodstream. There are too many ex-teammates pointing fingers at him, too many people who say they saw him stick needles in his body, too many people who claim they cheated right alongside Armstrong. The proper reaction to these “60 Minutes” accusations should be the same disgust that we’ve given to all the other liars, cheaters and bogus champions who have broken records, collected championships and blurred the validity of nearly every major athletic accomplishment over the past 20 years. Armstrong was supposed to be the greatest man to ever ride a bicycle, a seven-time Tour de France winner who has been fighting accusations for more than a decade about how his greatness was achieved. And now according to a report that will be aired Sunday night on “60 Minutes,” one of his best friends and former teammate George Hincapie has joined other members of Armstrong’s inner circle in claiming the accusations are true. This doesn’t make him a bad person. It does make him an unethical jock who belongs in the same company with Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and so many other notorious members of his generation who used the tip of a syringe to reach athletic excellence. On Friday night his friends and supporters at his Livestrong Foundation understandably continued to support him for all the remarkable work he has done for cancer patients. “Show me one other person in his position who’s raised millions for cancer, who’s lit the way through darkness for so many people,” Peter Kelley, a cancer survivor who’s been in remission for 26 months told The Associated Press at an Aspen (Co.) fundraiser on Friday night. “He literally lit the way for me by his example. He made a difference in my recovery.” I couldn’t agree more with the philanthropy that Armstrong has done and continues to do. It is indisputable that he has helped his foundation raise more than $400 million in funding for cancer patients. If that makes him more noble than insufferable jerks like Bonds or Clemens, that’s nice and he deserves the fierce loyalty from his supporters. But it’s time to

Wyoming Valley West’s season ends in extra innings against the sixth-seeded Buckhorns.

KINGSTON — After seven scoreless innings, Wallenpaupack had a decision to make. Stick with the starter or turn to the bullpen? With Steve Camasta at just 90 pitches and still in full command, there was ’PAUPACK no doubt which one it would be. “None,” CaVALLEY WEST masta said. “It was my game.” And how. The Buckhorns junior earned his first career varsity win on the mound as Wallenpaupack upset Wyoming Valley West 1-0 in extra innings on Tuesday in the District 2-4 Class 4A quarterfinals at Spartan Stadium. Camasta struck out seven and didn’t allow a walk in his complete-game shutout. He even drove in the game’s lone run in the top of the eighth for good measure. “He’s our number one, and he’s kept us in a lot of games,” ’Paupack coach Todd Schmalzle said. “We’ve been winning a lot of games until the fifth inning, and then we just kind of fall apart and give up a couple to lose them. “He’s pitched well all season, but this was by far the best I’ve seen him pitch this year. This is the kid I expected from the beginning of the season.” The Buckhorns (3-12) advance to play at Williamsport in Thursday’s semifinals. Valley West’s season ends at 9-6. Wallenpaupack came into the week with just one league win all year, sending them into the district playoffs as the sixth and final seed in 4A. But the Buckhorns won their regular-season finale against Delaware Valley on Monday and held strong on Tuesday

AMERICA’S LINE Odds to win American Idol


The $60,000 Fillies & Mares Open returns to the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Two weeks ago we had a huge shocker with 30-1 outsider Billmar Scooter scoring the upset. In tonight’s featured race I’m going with the likely favorite Spirit To Spare to score the victory. The 5-year-old daughter of Artsplace has been razor sharp of late, winning in three of her last five races. Her most recent effort over the mile strip at the Meadowlands was her best yet, pacing a back half in :54 and change to win going away in 1:51.1. The Don Niccum trainee likes the five-eighths strip as well, dusting a solid field at Chester back on May 4 (on an off track) in 1:52.4. She has all the tools and her versatility is enough to garner the top choice in a strong 10th race. BEST BET: HOBOKEN SONNY (6TH) VALUE PLAY: REVINGTON (2ND) Post Time 6:30 p.m. All Races One Mile

Teixeira delivers a game-winner The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Curtis Granderson had a tying RBI single in the ninth inning then stole second before Mark Teixeira singled him home to give CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees a 5-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night. The Yankees rallied for two runs in the eighth against relievers Casey Janssen and Marc Rzepczynski, and two in the ninth off Frank Francisco (1-2). Robinson Cano had an RBI double in the eighth and Russell Martin followed with a run-scoring single. Sabathia (5-3) retired the final 16 batters in his first complete game at home for the Yankees. He gave up eight hits and four runs in the first four innings.

Red Sox 4, Indians 2

CLEVELAND — Josh Beckett picked up first regularseason win in Cleveland — where he pitched an October gem four years ago — to lead the Boston Red Sox to a win over the Indians, who couldn’t quite muster another lateinning rally and lost for just the fifth time at home. Beckett (4-1) allowed one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings for his only non-postseason win at Progressive Field. He won here in the 2007 ALCS, pitching eight dominant innings in Game 5 as the Red Sox kept their season alive and eventually won the series. Tigers 7, Rays 6

Bruce delivers big hit; Reds snap 6-game skid The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Jay Bruce hit a tiebreaking, threerun double in the ninth inning and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 Tuesday night to snap a sixgame losing streak. The Reds had lost eight straight against NL East-leading Philadelphia, including a threegame sweep in last year’s division playoff series. Bruce came in swinging a hot bat. He had four homers in the last five games and was tied for the NL lead with 12. But he struck out three times and popped out in his first four at-bats before clearing the bases against Ryan Madson (2-1). Braves 2, Pirates 0

PITTSBURGH — Jair Jurrjens pitched six-hit ball into the eighth inning to lead the Atlanta Braves to a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Rockies 12, Diamondbacks 4 Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 2

DENVER — Carlos Gonzalez homered twice and the Colorado Rockies became the first team to decipher Josh Collmenter’s tomahawk-throwing style, rallying past Arizona despite losing pitcher Jorge De La Rosa in the opener of the day-night doubleheader. In the second game, Joe Saunders snapped a personal six-game losing skid and Kelly Johnson homered and drove in two runs in the Diamondbacks’ win. Dodgers 5, Astros 4

HOUSTON — Rookie Jerry Sands hit a grand slam in the third inning and Jay Gibbons

also homered as the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped a threegame losing streak with a win over the Houston Astros. Cubs 11, Mets 1

CHICAGO — Ryan Dempster pitched seven effective innings, Starlin Castro had three hits and three RBIs and the Chicago Cubs pounded the stumbling New York Mets. Alfonso Soriano, Darwin Barney and Lou Montanez each had two hits for Chicago, which kicked off a nine-game homestand with its 11th victory in its past 12 games against NL East teams. Montanez started in right field hours after he was promoted from Triple-A Iowa when the Cubs put right-hander Matt Garza on the 15-day disabled list with elbow stiffness. The Mets dropped their first game since a pair of magazine articles about owner Fred Wilpon. Wilpon first made a couple of chilly comments about three of the team’s biggest stars in an interview with The New Yorker, then told Sports Illustrated the club is “bleeding cash” and could lose up to $70 million this year. Brewers 7, Nationals 6

MILWAUKEE — Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning and Brandon Boggs collided into catcher Wilson Ramos to score the go-ahead run, rallying the Milwaukee Brewers over the Washington Nationals. Milwaukee has won 12 of its last 15 overall and has its longest winning streak in the 11-year history of Miller Park at eight games, though this one certainly didn’t come easily.

Crusaders, Royals advance to district finals By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

WILKES-BARRE – After trouncing four-time defending District 2 Class 2A champion North Pocono in the quarterfinals, Coughlin needed just one thing to escape Tuesday’s semifinal against Crestwood – luck. The sixth-seeded Crusaders battled from behind in all three of its wins en route to a 3-1 victory over No. 7 Crestwood at Holy Redeemer. Coughlin moves to the District 2 Class 2A title game where it will face top-seeded Holy Redeemer, which earned a 3-0 victory over Abington Heights, on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Marywood University. The Crusaders were forced into extra points in each of its victo-

ries as they won 26-24, 16-25, 2624, 26-24. Despite its second consecutive trip to the district championships, coach David Lapinski said the team below the level it played in Monday’s 3-0 win over North Pocono. “It was luck. We didn’t move; we do anything well whatsoever at all today,” Lapinski said. “It was just the fact that we stayed in there and that was that. It was horrible. We play again on Thursday, thankfully.” With the Crusaders on match point at 24-18 in the fourth game, the Comets stormed back to score six consecutive points to even the game at 24-24. Coughlin scored the final two points and clinched the match when Justin Coskey forced a Comet error. “We went from as high as you

can be in the game of volley to spent, shot, tired.,” said Lapinski. “It’s all excuses. We’re better than that. And that’s not to take anything away from Crestwood.” In a game of streaks, Coughlin overcome a three-point deficit by going on a seven-point run to take a 19-15 lead in the fourth. The Crusaders’ were aided by several misdirection hits by Michael Schmakov that yielded kills. The Crusaders were led by Schmakov, who finished with 24 kills and seven service points. Coskey contributed with 19 kills and nine service points. Brian Suchoski manufactured 39 assists. Crestwood’s Jake Prohoska tallied 15 kills, four blocks and six digs. Nick Bonos had 40 assists, eight kills and eight service points. Zach Ciaverella pitched in

with four digs, six kills and seven service points. Crestwood faces Abington Heights in the consolation game Thursday at 5 p.m. at Marywood. “We know Coughlin is one of the elite teams in the league,” said Crestwood coach Mike Williams. “Knowing that we had a chance to make states and still play in the third place game, we were playing with house money today. We felt no pressure. “It would’ve been nice to win but there’s no loser in this one.” Royals shut out Comets Holy Redeemer averted an early first-game deficit to shut out Abington Heights by scores of 2523, 25-29, 25-11. With game point at 24-23, the Royals’ Peter Alexis forced a hit-

Dan Kopicki scored on a behindthe-back to give Holy Redeemer a two-point lead at 14-12. “We had to regroup, get back in sync again,” said Royals coach Jack Kablick. “We were missing some passes on an easy serve that I thought we should be able to get.” The Royals composed in the second game, never relinquishing a lead it held at 10-9.

Dallas’ Kristan Baker gets hit by a pitch in the first inning of Tuesday’s game against Tunkhannock.

DALLAS Continued from Page 1B

Artonya Gordon singled with one out, moved to second on a wild pick and to third when Schyler Yatsko followed with a single. Dallas pitcher Kristan Baker ended the threat by getting a pop out and strikeout. “That last inning was scary,” Dallas coach Joyce Tinner said. “We’ve been doing that a lot this year. But when we had to, we’ve come up one defense and Kristan has barreled down and we’ve got the outs we needed.” Dallas jumped to a 1-0 lead in the first when Konopki singled in courtesy runner Tanner Englehart, who was running for Baker. Baker was hit with a pitch on the inside of her pitching arm

a few inches above the elbow. Tunkhannock used a couple hit batsmen and a wild third strike to tie the score 1-1 in the fourth. Each team scored twice in the fifth. Konopki was hit with a pitch with the bases loaded and Shaver followed with an infield single to account for Dallas’ runs. Tunkhannock used an RBI double by Ashley Inman and an RBI single by Jess Brennan to score its pair. Dallas

NC officials: Kyle Busch caught doing 128 The Associated Press

STATESVILLE, N.C. — NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was clocked by a North Carolina sheriff’s deputy going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone and was cited for careless and reckless driving and speeding, a law enforcement spokesman said Tuesday. Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Darren Campbell said a deputy stopped Busch’s 2012 yellow Lexus sports car on a road between Troutman and Mooresville, where the 26year-old driver lives. It’s about 30 miles north of Charlotte. Campbell said Busch was cited and released upon a written promise to appear in court. In a statement issued late Tuesday, Busch acknowledged

what happened. “I was test-driving a new sports car and I got carried away,” Busch said. “I went beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road. I apologize to the public, my fans, sponsors, and race teams for my lack of judgment.” Busch, who drives for Joe Gibbs Racing, accepted responsibility and said it would never happen again. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said Busch would be allowed to race this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He’s coming off a second-place finish in Saturday night’s AllStar race, and goes into the Coca-Cola 600 ranked third in the Sprint Cup Series standings.

“This is a matter that Kyle will have to handle with the authorities in Iredell County,” Tharp said. “Based on what we know right now, this would not impact his status as a NASCAR driver.” In 2006, Busch pleaded guilty to improper driving and was fined $150 after he was ticketed in suburban Richmond, Va., on a reckless driving charge when he pulled out of a gas station and into a fastfood restaurant. Busch said at the time he “chirped” his tires but didn’t exceed 10 mph. Under a misdemeanor reckless driving charge he originally faced, Busch could have received up to one year in jail, a $2,500 fine and a driver’s license suspension.

to stun the No. 3 Spartans. Valley West, meanwhile, finished the season with a scoreless streak that reached 17 innings. The Spartans scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth against Berwick on May 12, winning that game 4-1 without batting in the seventh. Rain moved back the team’s last regular season game to Saturday – a 13-0 loss to Tunkhannock in which the Spartans had just one hit. It was a surprising slump for a team that had scored 96 runs in 13 games before Saturday. There wasn’t anything coach John Milius could put his finger on to explain the drought. “I wish I could. I wish I could,” Milius said. “I’ll be second-guessing myself. We’ve done all we usually do. We had some good workouts the last few days. I thought we were well-prepared.” The Spartans got a strong mound performance of their own from Tommy Alexander, who blanked the Buckhorns through seven innings. Staying ahead of hitters for much of the afternoon, Alexander finished with nine strikeouts while scattering six hits. The junior right-hander got out of a bases-loaded jam in the second inning and got a big strikeout to end the fourth with runners on second and third. Alexander chipped in at the plate with two of the Spartans’ five hits, including a single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. After Valley West went to the bullpen to start the eighth, ’Paupack led off with a shot to deep center by Will McLaughlin, who ended up at third with a triple. Camasta came through in the next at-bat, sending a liner into right field for the only run of the game. The Spartans responded by erasing the lead runner on a grounder and then turning a 6-4-3 double play to keep the deficit at 1-0. But Camasta retired the side in order in the bottom of the eighth, inducing a pop-up to right to end the game. “Any given time, any given team – like today – can do you in,” Milius said. “You’ve gotta come to play. You’ve gotta bring your ‘A’ game. Can’t be A-minus.” District 2-4 Class 4A quarterfinal Wallenpaupack 1, Valley West 0 (8 inn.)

went on to a commanding 25-11 to close the match. “We got in a rhythm,” said Kablick. “I was hoping we’d get off to an early start, get a five- or sixpoint early lead. Because after you lose two games and get down that much, it’s tough to stay up. It snowballed from there.” Alexis finished with 18 kills, two blocks and an ace. Rob Wingert had six kills, four blocks, 24 assists and five service points. Kopicki scored seven kills and four blocks. John McCarthy produced seven kills. For Abington Heights, Andy McLane had six kills, a block and three aces. Eric Wasser produced 13 assists, two kills and a block. Drew Shumaker had five kills and two blocks. Mike Pacyna netted four blocks and a kill.

Politicians, businessmen supporting NFL players in labor dispute MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Some of the little guys in the NFL labor dispute have thrown their support behind the players in their legal fight to end the owner-imposed

lockout. A 44-member group of local elected officials and small business owners filed an amicus brief in support of the players on Tuesday, say-

ing a prolonged lockout will result in jobs being lost and government budgets being short. The group includes state lawmakers, city council members and pub owners from

Washington to Texas. The group says a federal court in St. Paul, Minn., was right to order an injunction to lift the lockout. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has put

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson’s ruling on hold temporarily and is scheduled to hear arguments June 3 on the legality of the ongoing lockout.











Penn State searching for coach who is right fit By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer

STATE COLLEGE — An unexpected coaching search is underway at Penn State after Ed DeChellis left his alma mater to take the same position at Navy. The blinds in the corner office that used to belong to DeChellis were drawn Tuesday morning at the Jordan Center. Around the corner and down a long corridor, athletic director Tim Curley began working the phones a day after DeChellis announced his surprise resignation. Asked what he was looking for in the next coach, Curley didn’t name names, but stressed the priority of finding the right fit for the program. Penn State prides itself as a power conference team whose athletes also excel off the court. “Our program is built on cer-

tain values and tradition, a certain way of operating,” he said in a phone interview Tuesday afternoon with The Associated Press. “Ultimately, it’s my responsibility to make sure we identify a coach who identifies with our system and the Penn State way.” Though not necessarily someone with Penn State ties, like DeChellis. “We’re conducting a national search, so we’re open to the best candidate that we can find,” Curley said. He said there was no timeline, though he hoped to move quickly to find a replacement. A native of western Pennsylvania, the 52-year-old DeChellis returned to Penn State in 2003 after a successful seven-year stint at East Tennessee State. Penn State won the 2009 NIT under DeChellis, then surged into the Big Ten

around to score a sacrifice fly as the Indians cut the lead to 2-1.But that’s all the Indians would get off Warren. “For me it was the mindset of just attacking hitters and getting ahead,” Warren said. In addition to allowing just three hits, Warren only walked one and fanned four. He got five groundouts and 15 outs through the air in his eight innings of work. After allowing the run in the fourth, he didn’t give up any more hits, and a leadoff walk in the fifth was the only other batter to reach base. He threw 100 pitches – 68 for strikes – through eight innings and retired the last 12 batters he faced. “We said that it starts with pitching and that’s probably the best he’s thrown and gives him something to build on,” SWB manager Dave Miley said. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got to Indianapolis starter Sean Gallagher (1-7) in the bottom of the first when Jorge Vazquez hit his league-leading 17th home run of the season to put the Yankees up 2-0. The shot, which cleared the left field wall, scored Ramiro Pena, who singled to extend his modest hitting streak to five games. “He’s a great hitter. It’s fun to watch him hit because he can hit a home run just about every time out,” Warren said about Vazquez. “To get that early lead, it kind of comforts you as a pitcher to pound the zone and get those early outs.” And that’s all Warren would need. The Yankees tacked on a run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly Brandon Laird to score Vazquez for a 3-1 lead. Laird picked up another RBI in the eighth when he singled in Jesus Montero to put the Yankees up 4-1. Montero reached base with a single to equal Pena for the team’s current long hitting streak of five games. Kevin Russo (2-for-4) chipped in a run-scoring single driving in Justin Maxwell (2-for-4) after Laird’s hit for the 5-1 advantage. The way the team grinded out a few late runs is a positive after the recent sixgame losing streak. “To be able to tack on and manufacture a few runs there, that’s what we got

separate the good that the man has done from the accusations that the cyclist continues to deny and the athletic frauds he is said to have perpetrated. Yet that’s only part of what troubles me about how people are reacting to Armstrong getting busted by his old teammates. The other troubling part of this story is how the performance enhancing drug debate in America is shifting from universal anger and disappointment in the cheaters themselves to questioning the motives and propriety of the prosecutors, investigators and journalists who are still interested in busting them. Some critical voices now wonder what good is being done by investigating these cheaters with the full weight of the federal government behind the prosecutors and their aggressive drug cops. My only problem with the investigations is why the only targets we keep seeing out front as the stars of the show are the celebrity athletes. If the end game of these drug hunts does not round up the distributors and pharmaceutical geniuses who are actually

tournament final this past spring to secure a trip to the NCAAs and a date with Temple. The 66-64 loss to the Owls turned out to be DeChellis’ last game. He compiled a record of 114-138, with a 41-95 mark in regular-season Big Ten play. Curley said DeChellis left the program in an “excellent state,” with a great foundation. “If you look at the body of work ... you saw improvements in all the areas.” Following the departure of career leading scorer Talor Battle and three other senior starters, the next coach will inherit a young and relatively inexperienced roster, other than point guard Tim Frazier. Fans with pie-in-the-sky hopes have mentioned high-profile names from mid-majors like Butler’s Brad Stevens or VCU’s Shaka

Smart on wish lists, but both hot commodities recently signed long-term extensions to stay put. Midwest or Pennsylvania ties could be a selling point, especially if Penn State has any hope of getting more competitive on the recruiting trail. Temple’s Fran Dunphy, who left Penn in 2006 to replace Hall of Famer John Chaney with the Owls, is certainly a known commodity. But he signed an extension with Temple a year ago to keep him in Philadelphia through 2018. Former Bucknell coach Pat Flannery is available. The architect of the defensive-minded Patriot League squads that had back-to-back first-round NCAA victories in 2005 and 2006 is a fundraiser now for Bucknell after stepping down in 2008. Known for his fiery intensity,

Flannery had experienced health problems in his last couple years on the bench. Flannery since then has said he is completely healthy again. He declined comment when contacted Tuesday by the AP, except saying the Penn State opening “would be a great opportunity for anyone.” Flannery could be intriguing given the odd timing of DeChellis’ departure, a point when most schools have their coaching staffs in place. ESPN analyst Dick Vitale on his Twitter feed promoted former Indiana and Texas Tech coach Bob Knight, certainly a name that would raise any school’s profile. But Knight, now 70, has his history of volatility that doesn’t fit Penn State’s image. There are other possibilities with Pennsylvania ties that cur-

rently have coaching jobs, such as Milwaukee’s Rob Jeter, Drexel’s Bruiser Flint, Marshall’s Tom Herrion and Duquesne’s Ron Everhart. Jeter was born in Pittsburgh, Flint has built the Dragons into a consistent CAA contender in the shadows of the more high-profile Philadelphia programs, Herrion was an assistant at Pitt, and Everhart has taken the Dukes, who have long played second fiddle to the Panthers in Pittsburgh, to postseason play the past three seasons. Former Penn State forward Jamelle Cornley, who led the NIT championship team, praised DeChellis for preaching integrity. An NCAA Academic Progress Report released Tuesday showed Penn State scoring 995 out of 1,000, tied for the best mark in the Big Ten with Michigan State.

Amaury Sanit, who was optioned by New York on Saturday, pitched a scoreless ninth for the Yankees allowing one hit to secure the team’s second win in about 14 hours as the game ended shortly after 1 p.m. Monday’s game – which was delayed by nearly two hours – ended just before 11 p.m. Notes: Tuesday’s game was the final school-day special of the season.

selling and manufacturing the designer drugs, then it is not enough. But I want the pursuit to continue. I am not indifferent to the crimes. I am not numbed by all the cheating. I have not reached the point where I no longer care if what I am seeing is real or just a juiced-up mirage. What good does it do to continue tracking down athletes like Armstrong and Bonds? Because there’s no such thing as harmless cheating. In an interview with “60 Minutes” Frankie Andreu, another Armstrong teammate who admitted that he took banned substances, said: “Things were just getting faster and faster and sprinters were getting over the big mountains and winning, you know, climbing stages. There’s 200 guys flying over these mountains and you can’t even stay in the group. And it’s just impossible to keep up. And it’s like, ’What the hell’s going on here?’ “ Cheating doesn’t only create bogus champions and counterfeit records. It also creates an entire culture of drug cheats just trying to stay even. And if Armstrong had a part in perpetuating that culture, there’s nothing admirable about that. Bryan Burwell is a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

American Isner pushes Nadal to limit By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS — It’s newsworthy enough when anyone manages to win a set against Rafael Nadal at any stage of the French Open — let alone two sets in the first round. So a buzz built at Roland Garros on Tuesday when unseeded American John Isner pulled ahead of five-time champion Nadal by unfurling his 6-foot-9 frame to pound serves at upward of 140 mph, pushing up to the net time after time for volleys, and generally making the Spaniard uncomfortable for stretches. “Quite clearly,” Nadal acknowledged later, “this is a match that I could have lost.” In the end, he did not. Stretched to five sets for the first time in 40 career French Open matches, Nadal came back to emerge with a 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-7 (2), 6-2, 6-4 victory over Isner and reach the second round.

“Really, what it came down to is the way he played in the fourth and fifth sets,” Isner said. “I haven’t seen tennis like that, ever.” It was the most riveting match of a day that featured reigning U.S. Open and Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters’ first appearance at the French Open since 2006, a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Anastasiya Yakimova. Also advancing were Maria Sharapova, Li Na, Andy Murray, Robin Soderling and Sam Querrey. Two seeded women lost: No. 20 Ana Ivanovic, the 2008 champion, was eliminated 7-6 (3), 0-6, 6-2 by Johanna Larsson of Sweden, while No. 22 Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia was beaten 6-7 (10), 6-3, 6-2 by Vania King of the United States. No. 11 Nicolas Almagro departed with a five-set loss to Lukasz Kubot of Poland. Nadal’s bid to tie Bjorn Borg’s record of six championships at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament nearly came to a too-abrupt-to-believe halt.

Consider: — Nadal entered the day 38-1 at the French Open, his only loss coming to two-time finalist Soderling in the fourth round in 2009. — Isner’s career in Paris before Tuesday? One first-round exit and one trip to the third round, for a 2-2 record. — Nadal is ranked No. 1 and owns nine Grand Slam titles. — Isner is ranked 39th and never has been past the fourth at a major tournament. He’s best known to date for winning the longest match in tennis history, 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon last year, and setting a record with113 aces in that marathon. — Until the first of Tuesday’s two tiebreakers, Nadal hadn’t lost a single set at the French Open since 2009. And he hadn’t lost a set in any of 12 previous first- or second-round matches in the tournament. So all seemed rather ho-hum when Nadal was leading Isner by a set and a

break at 4-2 in the second. But Isner broke back to 4-all when Nadal missed a forehand, and suddenly, a tight match ensued. “That’s when I started to sort of believe a little bit more,” Isner said, “and started to play with more confidence and strut around more out there.” Even Nadal was a bit worried. So was Toni Nadal, Rafael’s coach and uncle, who would later say that from his perch in the stands he felt “very, very nervous, because losing in the first round is not too good for us.” But his nephew steeled himself, and made zero — yes, that’s right, zero — unforced errors in the fourth set, while Isner made12. Nadal broke Isner for a 2-1 edge in the fourth set, and called that “the turning point.” Isner’s coach, Craig Boynton, agreed. “Rafa getting up an early break in the fourth really helped his psyche,” Boynton said. Nadal broke for a 2-1 lead in the fifth

set, too, thanks in part to a cross-court backhand return winner, a forehand return winner, and a backhand return at the feet of the net-charging Isner. Uncle Toni greeted each with a yell of “Vamos!” “Fantastic game for me,” Nadal said. “I played my best game of the match.”

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose (1) puts up a shot as a Miami defender falls to the floor during Game 4 of the Easter Conference Finals in Miami.

James, Bosh, Wade carry Heat over Chicago

By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade was ailing, so LeBron James and Chris Bosh more than picked up the slack. Then Wade found his groove at the perfect time, and the Miami Heat, the team put together solely to win championships, moved one emotional victory away from the NBA finals. James scored 35 points, Bosh added 22 and the Heat overcame an early 11-point deficit to beat the Chicago Bulls 101-93 on Tuesday night, taking a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Game 5 is Thursday in Chicago, when the Heat can wrap up their first finals trip since 2006. Wade went scoreless for nearly 33 straight minutes, before making a jumper with 2:08 left in overtime to help Miami keep the lead. And after James made a contested jumper with 29 seconds remaining for a six-point lead, Wade soared to block Derrick Rose’s layup from out of almost nowhere on the next Chicago possession. At long last, it was over. Bosh scored the first four points of overtime, and the Heat — now 8-0 at home in the playoffs — never trailed in the extra session. James closed it with two free throws with 1.4 seconds left, his 12th and 13th of the night, all without a miss. Bosh was 10 for

11 from the line, and Miami outscored Chicago 32-17 in that department. The Heat made their final 24 free throws. Rose scored 23 points for the Bulls, who got 20 apiece from Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer. Chicago has lost three straight games for the first time this season. But what this game will be remembered for was how the Heat rallied around Wade — then watched him save his best for the very end. The 2006 NBA finals MVP was in the arena late Monday night, trying to work on some things in one of his customary playoff after-dark sessions. Sometimes it works. Some-

times it doesn’t. This seemed like it would be the latter. Whatever answer he sought, he didn’t find for much of Game 4. Wade made just 5 of 16 shots from the field, lacking his usual lift at the rim. He made a pair of free throws with 1:50 left in the first half for his seventh and eighth points, and didn’t score again until overtime. Better late than never. That was just the start for the Heat. Chicago turned the ball over on its next two possessions, Wade turned the second of those into a layup with 1:01 left for a 9589 lead, and the Heat soon knew they were one win away from the title round. Mike Miller scored 12 for Mia-

mi. The fourth quarter was pure theater, both teams clearly knowing — clearly relishing — the stakes. Miami scored the first seven points for a 70-69 lead. Chicago took the lead back on a pair of free throws by Rose with 6:34 left, and Miami answered with a four-point possession — two free throws by Bosh after a flagrant foul against Boozer, followed by Miller making a jumper over Rose for a 78-77 edge.

TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning are once again hitching their hopes of blocking Boston’s path to the Stanley Cup finals on goaltender Dwayne Roloson. Down 3-2 to the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals, coach Guy Boucher said the 41-year-old Roloson is “the guy that took us here,” so he’ll be in net for Game 6 when the Lightning try to even the best-of-seven series on Wednesday night. The Bruins are one victory away from their first Stanley Cup appearance in 21 years after beating Roloson’s backup, Mike Smith, in Game 5. Boucher opted to give Smith his first career playoff start after pulling Roloson from two of the previous three games against the Bruins, saying he felt the veteran whose acquisition in January was critical to Tampa Bay’s turnaround season needed a “breather.” Although Smith was solid during Monday’s night’s 3-1 loss that left the Lightning on the brink of elimination, Boucher sounded as though it was an easy decision to go back to Roloson. “This is a perfect situation. He’s going to be the only rested guy in the two teams,” Boucher said Tuesday, noting Roloson has responded well to breaks this season. “He’s like everybody else. He’s one of the hardest working guys on our team. He puts in a lot of hours and a lot of time,” the Lightning coach added. “And he’s like everybody else, at some point or another just needs to breathe a little bit.” Smith shut down Boston after Roloson fell behind 3-0 in the opening period of Game 4, giving Tampa Bay a chance to rally for a 5-3 victory. He stopped 17 of 19 shots Monday night, with the Bruins’ adding an empty net goal in the closing seconds of a win that that has Boston on the brink of reaching the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1990. The Bruins said regardless of who’s in goal for the Lightning, they must remain focused on how they must play to finish the task. “We know and we can play better than we did (in Game 5) and that’s the positive you can take out of a win. Knowing that we’re a team that plays better than we showed,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said.

Woods said he was more worried about his health in 2008. “I’m a lot better off,” Woods said. “I feel that in the next week or so, I can start getting back toward that and start practicing pain free. That’s where I’m at. Woods spoke Tuesday at Aronimink Golf Club to promote the upcoming AT&T National. Woods withdrew after only nine holes this month at The Players Championship. He also fell out of the top 10 rankings for the first time in 14 years. He has been No. 1 for 623 weeks in his career, by far the longest of any golfer since the rankings began in 1986. He had been No. 1 from June 2005 until Lee Westwood of England supplanted him last November. “I haven’t played. It’s one of the reasons I’ve fallen as far as I have,” Woods said. “When I did play, I haven’t played well. Winning takes care of all of that.” He acknowledged he did come back too early for The Players Championship. He hurt himself on the opening tee shot at Sawgrass. Woods’ status was borderline for the tournament to begin with, but he pressed on and did further damage. He won’t risk additional injury to the leg. “It’d certainly be nice to come up here and play practice rounds,” he said, “and do all the other prep I do for the majors.” Not a chance this week, even on a gorgeous Tuesday. Woods posted on Twitter that he would donate $1 million to his foundation if no reporters asked him about his leg. There was no chance of that on the very first question. Woods later posted on Twitter he would donate the money anyway.

Costco’s earnings The price of food and gas is going up, but that may be a good thing for Costco. The warehouse retailer tends to do well when consumers are worried about money and look for deals on food and household products. It also sells gas at some of its stores. But its earnings report today may show that consumers are shying away from bigger purchases like TVs and patio sets. Even so, financial analysts expect Costco’s earnings to rise.

Another look at manufacturing The readings on manufacturing during April have pointed to slower growth. The government’s report on durable goods orders is expected to do the same. Economists often subtract orders for planes and other means of transportation when they want to get a reading on the economy. Those orders tend to be volatile. But even without those items, orders are expected to have fallen. That’s a sign that businesses are spending less.

Tax firm files Chapter 11 Jackson Hewitt said Tuesday it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection under the weight of heavy debt. The nation’s second-largest tax preparer said its lenders agreed to a restructuring plan to lower debt and interest expense. It filed the prepackaged plan with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware for court approval. Under the plan, Jackson Hewitt’s secured lenders will receive their pro rata share of a new $100 million term loan and all of the stock in the reorganized company. Shareholders and unsecured lenders won’t receive anything. Jackson Hewitt expects the plan to be implemented in 45 to 60 days. It will operate normally and prepare for the 2012 tax season until then. The Parsippany, N.J., company doesn’t expect customers, franchisees or employees to be affected.

Internet gambling is the future of the casino industry, whether it’s approved at the federal or state level, a panel of online and brick-and-mortar casino executives said Tuesday. Speaking at the East Coast Gaming Congress, executives from two online betting organizations and Caesars Entertainment said the Internet provides the gambling industry its best opportunity for growth. But the prospect of a federal law permitting it appears dim in light of recent federal raids on online gambling sites. Melanie Brenner, president of the U.S. Online Gaming Association, said more than 10 million people currently play online poker. “That’s what they look forward to,” she said. “This is the path to growth for (the casino) industry.”

New home sales increase More people bought new homes for a second straight month in April, a hopeful sign. Still, sales remain far below a pace that would signal a turnaround for the depressed housing market. New-home sales rose 7.3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 323,000, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. A healthy real estate market would produce a pace of about 700,000 new-home sales a month.

Credit card neglect falls Late payments on credit cards are at their lowest level in 15 years, TransUnion says. The credit reporting agency said Tuesday that nationwide, the rate of payments 90 days or more past due on bank-issued cards dropped to 0.74 percent in the first quarter of 2011. The rate peaked in the first quarter of 2009 at 1.32 percent. Card users also continue to pay down their credit card balances. The average credit card debt per borrower dropped to $4,679 for the quarter. Balances haven’t been this low since the third quarter of 2000. TransUnion expects delinquency rates to edge down for the rest of the year.

Touch-screen Nook near NEW YORK — The lighter, slimmer, cheaper new version of Barnes & Noble’s e-reader has a black-and-white touch screen and aims squarely at the “grandma” demographic — or at least those craving a simpler e-book reader. The latest Nook’s price tag — $139 — is a sign that the book seller also is aiming to compete with Amazon and Borders Group Inc. on e-reader prices.

The focus on simplicity means the new Nook’s battery can last 2 months, CEO William Lynch said at an event in New York to announce the device. Lynch said the latest Nook was inspired by customer feedback — specifically a letter asking why no e-readers were suitable for a grandma. “The Kindle 3 has 38 buttons. That’s 37 more than the all-new Nook,” said Lynch, taking a jab at’s ereader, the market’s top seller. The new Nook, to be available June 10, is Wi-Fi only, has a

6-inch touch screen and can hold up to 1,000 digital books. It features the latest E Ink technology, which significantly minimizes flashing that can occur as a user pages through an e-book. Pages seem to melt into each other on the new Nook. The newest device replaces versions that came before the Nook Color, which still sells for $249. After the all-new Nook’s release, the first-generation Nook will sell for $119, and the Nook 3G will sell for $169 — until supplies run out.


The new Nook and some accessories are displayed during a news conference Tuesday in New York. The new Nook features a black-and-white touch screen and aims squarely at the ’grandma’ demographic.

Lion Brewery, on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard, the state’s second-largest brewery, has agreed to settle a federal lawsuit filed against it by a Bronx, N.Y., beverage company. Terms of the settlement were confidential.

Lion Brewery settles soda lawsuit TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER


he Lion Brewery has agreed to settle a federal lawsuit filed against it by a beverage company that alleged the brewery provided it with a faulty product. Good-O Beverage Inc., of the Bronx, N.Y., filed suit against the Wilkes-Barre brewery in 2009, claiming that a soda product the brewery produced lost its carbonation after several months, forcing the company to pull the product from the market. According to the suit, Good-O Beverage contracted with the brewery to produce and bottle a new product line known as Red Rock, which came in four flavors: strawberry, orange, lemon-lime and cola. Production began in April 2008. As soon as the product was offered to the public, the company began getting complaints from consumers that the soda was “flat.” Lion Brewery filed a countersuit for breach of contract, contending it had produced the product to the specifications re-

quested by Good-O Beverage. The brewery claimed soda had the proper carbonation level when it left the plant, and that any problems were caused by faulty bottles that had been supplied by Good-O Beverage. Good-O Beverage claimed it lost $750,000 in profits, plus another $77,500 of wasted product and bottles. Lion Brewery argued it was owed more than $85,000 per year for its lost profits associated with the contract. The case was set to go to a non-jury trial

in federal court in Wilkes-Barre on Monday. A settlement was reached prior to the trial, according to court records. Marianne Gilmartin of Scranton, attorney for Lion Brewery, said the terms of the settlement were confidential, but the brewery maintains it produced the product to specifications. Roger Mattes of Scranton, an attorney for Good-O Beverage Inc., could not be reached for comment. Good-O Beverage makes drinks that are marketed toward those with Hispanic and West Indian backgrounds and are sold throughout the East Coast, Chicago and Texas. Lion Brewery, on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard, is the state’s second-largest brewery. It brews Lions Head and Stegmaier beer and bottles soda including its own brand root beer and Olde Philadelphia. It’s also contracted to brew and bottle other companies’ beverages.

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. — With a few computer keystrokes in an office at its headquarters, Chrysler Group LLC sent $7.6 billion to the U.S. and Canadian governments on Tuesday, paying off most of the bailout money that saved the company from financial disaster just two years ago. The repayment — expected for weeks — is a huge step in the automaker’s unlikely comeback. Chrysler went from a company that almost ran out of cash and survived a 2009 bankruptcy to one that is revamping its aging lineup and last quarter posted its first net profit in five years. It removes the stigma of being a government ward. But it also means the company must stand on its own and continue to overhaul a lineup that still depends on old Chrysler designs and larger vehicles that have fallen out of favor due to high gasoline prices. Chrysler took $10.5 billion from the U.S. government to survive two years ago, and earlier had repaid some of the money. On Tuesday, it retired a $5.9 billion balance on the U.S. loans and $1.7 billion to the governments of Canada and Ontario. “Chrysler’s repayment of its outstanding loans to the U.S. Treasury and American taxpayers marks a significant milestone for the turnaround of Chrysler and the countless communities and families who rely on the American auto industry,” President Barack Obama said in a statement.

Housing crisis creates renters who can’t afford or don’t want to own home By DEREK KRAVITZ AP Real Estate Writer

WASHINGTON — A growing number of Americans can’t afford a home or don’t want to own one, a trend that’s spawning a generation of renters and a rise in apartment construction. Many of the new renters are former owners who lost homes to foreclosure or bankruptcy. For others who could afford one, a home now feels too costly, too risky or unlikely to appreciate enough to make it a worthwhile investment. The proportion of U.S. households that own homes is at its lowest point since 1998.

When the housing bubble burst four years ago, 31.6 percent of households were renters. Now, it’s at 33.6 percent and rising. Since the housing meltdown, nearly 3 million households have become renters. At least 3 million more are expected by 2015, according to census data analyzed by Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies and The Associated Press. All told, nearly 38 million households are renters. Among the signs of a rising rental market: • The pace of apartment construction has surged 115 percent from its October 2009

low. It’s still well below a healthy level. But permits for apartments, a gauge of future construction, hit a two-year peak in March. By contrast, permits for single-family home are on pace for their lowest annual level on records dating to 1960. • The number of completed apartments averaged about 250,000 a year before the boom. They fell to 54,000 last year and will probably number around the same this year. But then the number will likely double to about 100,000 in 2012 and hit 250,000 by 2013 or 2014, according to the CoStar Group, a research firm. The lag

is due to the time it takes for an apartment building to be completed: an average of 14 months. • Demand is driving up rents. The median price of advertised rents rose 4.1 percent between the end of 2009 and the end of 2010, census data shows. Few expect the higher prices to stem the flood of renters, though. One reason: Younger adults don’t value homeownership as earlier generations did and many prefer to rent, studies show. • Rental housing is giving builders more work just as construction of single-family homes has dried up. Still, that

economic lift won’t make up for all the single-family houses not being built. Apartments account for only about onefourth of homes. And renters are outspent roughly 2-to-1 by homeowners, who pay for items from lawn care to remodeling and help drive the economy. Before the housing bust, mortgage rates were so low it was often cheaper to buy than rent. That was true a decade ago in more than half the 54 biggest metro areas, according to Moody’s Analytics. Today, by contrast, it’s cheaper to rent in about 72 percent of metro areas.

Why Europe Matters

The arrest and resignation of International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn has put Europe’s debt troubles back in the news. Investors should care about what happens in Europe because markets are global — and Europe and the U.S. are intertwined through trade. Some questions and answers about Europe’s troubles and the markets:

Q: The European Union and the IMF arranged a bailout for Greece last year. Why does it need more? A: Greece wasn’t “bailed out.” It got a $157 billion loan to help it keep current on payments to banks and other bondholders. It got the loan after agreeing to deep spending cuts and tax increases. That shrank Greece’s economy and made it more difficult for the country to pay its debt. Many economists believe its debt should be restructured. That would mean cutting interest rates and/or extending the payback period. The European Union and the IMF must agree to this. Q: How are the arrest and resignation of Strauss-Kahn a factor in this? A: The IMF is without its master negotiator. The IMF plays a key role in talks between European countries. In the past it has per-

suaded Germany and others to help weaker countries. Q: If Greece or other countries run into more trouble, what happens to the dollar? A: Worries over Europe typically drive down the euro and raise the dollar. The dollar is seen as a safe investment. That’s evident in its 4 percent gain against the euro this month.

Q: What about U.S. government debt? A: Treasurys would also likely rise. Bond traders consider short-term U.S. debt to be one of the most attractive places to park cash. Q: And stocks? A: Stocks would likely fall. A stronger dollar makes U.S. goods more expensive to foreign buyers. It’s akin to hiking prices on everything made in the U.S. And large U.S. companies increasingly get more of their revenue from doing business abroad. Q: Are gold and other commodities a good investment during a crisis? A: Gold has long been popular for nervous investors. So you’d think a possible crisis in Europe would send gold and silver higher. But commodities are seen as risky and could fall if investors are worried.

At last I can assure you that today will be a day without a drop of rain. Northerly winds overnight have guided dry air our way, and so we can expect hours of strong sunshine boosting afternoon temperatures to near 80. Indeed, the sun now is as strong as it is on July 20. Southerly winds will return over the next few days with higher humidity and the risk for more thunderstorms. Temperatures will likely trend well above normal through the holiday weekend. The outlook for June, July and August is showing both rainfall and temperatures to be near normal. So please don't despair. We might be in for a really nice summer this year. - Tom Clark

Japanese crumbs crunch up a basic chicken sandwich Panko is the Japanese word for “breadcrumbs,” and this variety tends to be lighter, crispier and crunchier than what we all know as traditional breadcrumbs in the United States. Several things set panko aside from regular breadcrumbs. The first thing is the coarse grind, which creates breadcrumbs that are more like flakes than crumbs. The flakes have a large surface area, which absorbs seasoning well. They tend to stay crispy longer than regular breadcrumbs, and they absorb less grease. Blending all these ingredients with the Italian flavors makes this a very enjoyable sandwich. You can always call Vanderlyn’s at 2836260 to see when this will be a featured item, but if you want to try to make it yourself, here is the recipe.

Infuse your summer with these fruity backyard cocktails By MICHELLE LOCKE For The Associated Press


ummer time and the living can be just that little bit easier with pitcher cocktails. Whether you’re mixing up a batch of margaritas for friends in your backyard or ordering a round of mai tais for the table, pitchers are a quick and easy way to rethink your drink for a crowd. At Spoonbar in the wine country town of Healdsburg, Calif., bar manager Scott Beattie knew early on that he wanted to serve cocktails by the pitcher. So he ordered a Kold-Draft ice cube machine capable of making big, dense cubes that keep drinks cold without diluting them. It’s also efficient. With the cubes and a really big shaker, “it takes just about as long to make one drink as it does to make five,” he points out. The drinks are shaken, strained and poured into a pitcher ready to go. “It’s been great; people really dig it,” says Beattie, author of “Artisanal Cocktails.” Other cocktail enthusiasts also are shaking up pitcher-perfect cocktails. At Philadelphia’s Square 1682 restaurant, one night a week is dedicated to tiki cocktails, and with the weather warming up and the patio open they’ve introduced a new tiki pitcher cocktail: Kama’aina Punch. The drink blends gin, triple sec, fresh lemon juice, coconut syrup, pineapple juice and black-cherry puree and can be given a little extra sparkle with the addition of prosecco. “Everyone loves a pitcher,” says Anna Schneider, general manager. “It’s social, fun, basically happy hour in a bowl.”

PANKO-CRUSTED CHICKEN SANDWICH Ingredients for 2 sandwiches: 2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, 5 ounces each 1 ⁄2 cup panko breadcrumbs 1 egg, beaten 1 ⁄4 cup all-purpose flour 2 slices fresh mozzarella 2 leaves Romaine lettuce 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette 1 roasted red pepper, sliced 1 vine-ripened tomato, sliced 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped 2 ciabatta rolls 1 ⁄4 cup vegetable oil Method of preparation: Pound chicken with mallet to an even thickness. Coat chicken with flour, then dip in egg, then finally in the panko breadcrumbs. Heat pan with vegetable oil and cook chicken to a golden brown color, about 5 minutes on each side. Let chicken rest on a paper towel. Slice rolls in half, toss lettuce with vinaigrette and lay on bottom piece of roll. Place chicken, tomatoes and roasted red peppers on lettuce. Add mozzarella and basil. Drizzle with vinaigrette and top with roll. Cut on an angle and serve with fresh fruit or your favorite salad.

Let them eat blue-velvet cake on coming patriotic holidays By SARA POKORNY

When Memorial Day and the Fourth of July roll around, it’s not uncommon to see a square cake garnished with blueberries and strawberries a la the American flag. Sure, those cakes look really cool, but once you cut into them they’re most often plain. Not anymore. This year, why not go the round route and make a cake look good not only on the outside but inside as well? I found this recipe for bluevelvet cake on the Adventures in Cooking blog ( and tweaked it as I saw fit. What resulted is a delicious, light, blue-velvet cake with blueberries throughout, covered in creamcheese icing. •••

INGREDIENTS 11/4 cups flour 11/4 cups granulated sugar 11 egg whites, room temperature 2 tsp. vanilla extract 1 0.3 oz. bottle blue food coloring 11/2 tsp. cream of tartar 1 tbsp. cocoa powder 1/4 tsp. salt 11/2 cups blueberries, fresh not frozen CREAM CHEESE ICING 10 tbsp. butter, softened 16 oz. cream cheese 3 cups powdered sugar 4 tsp. vanilla extract Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. (I have an electric oven and set it to 350 degrees, which seemed to get the cakes done in the same amount of time.) In a medium bowl, sift together flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and the cocoa powder. Set aside. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together the egg whites, vanilla extract, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form. Then beat in the remaining 3/4 cups of granulated sugar and the blue food coloring until stiff peaks form. This should take about five minutes.


Blue-velvet cake gives a nod to the third, often overlooked, color in the patriotic trio. Beating the ingredients together in this manner is incredibly important. The first time I made this cake I

used a whisk, and the cake was very dense. Once you start beating everything together, it’s going to froth a lot,

but that’s exactly what you want. When you’re done, the consistency of the batter should be something close to a meringue. Next, fold in 1/4 cup of the flour mixture at a time, taking great care not to stir the mixture, just fold, until all of it is incorporated. Fold in one cup of blueberries. When you’re done, pour the batter into two well-greased, round, 9-inch cake pans and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Here’s a trick I learned when it comes to using cake pans: put the pan, bottom down, on a piece of parchment paper and trace it. Cut the circle out and lay it on the inside bottom of the pan. Then grease the sides of the pan. This makes it a lot easier to get the cake out of the pan when it’s done baking. When the cakes are done baking, remove the pans from the oven and flip them upside down onto a cooling rack. Give the pan a gentle shake (and maybe a tap or two), and the cakes should fall right out. Then peel the piece of parchment paper from the cake. This should give you a nice, smooth surface.

Once the cakes are out, place them in the refrigerator for half an hour. You can now start on the icing, which is really simple and incredibly tasty. Use a deep batter bowl and hand mixer to beat together the cream cheese, vanilla and butter until completely combined. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time and mix until blended, then place in refrigerator for about15 minutes to help solidify the texture. After the cake and frosting are done in the fridge, place the bottom cake layer on whatever display surface you choose (a cake stand or decorative plate) and evenly frost the top. This layer should be on the thinner side, as you’ll need the rest of the icing to frost the entire cake. Now place the second cake layer on top of the bottom so they line up perfectly. Spoon the remaining icing on the center-top of the cake, then use a spatula to gradually spread it over to and down the sides, making sure to cover the entire cake. Decorating is up to you, but I chose to place blueberries in the center of the cake, then strawberries, sliced thin and lengthwise, fanned out in a circle around the blueberries.

And Young Lee of the Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant and Lounge in Las Vegas makes a refreshing cucumber cooler with vodka, fresh lemon sour, white cranberry juice, simple syrup and cucumber puree. Customers bellying up to Beattie’s bar have an interesting option. They can trade in fruit from their backyards for restaurant credit. The fruit is juiced and then the juice frozen to be used for a variety of things, including pitcher cocktails. The program launched in February, with people mostly bringing in citrus, especially Meyer lemons which thrive in Healdsburg. Spoonbar plans to continue the program this summer with a call for plums, peaches, berries, apples and pears. The program requires some work. Incoming fruit has to be checked and cleaned and you need storage space and a plan for use. Spoonbar brought in two extra freezers which came in handy the week they took in 1,500 pounds of fruit. Customers get to make use of fruit that otherwise might just fall off the tree; Spoonbar gets a source of fresh, local produce. “It’s a great way for people to utilize the fruit in a different way and contribute to their local restaurant and get some return EARLY

Woman in love with gay man wonders if they have a future together Dear Abby: I started a relationship with a co-worker. We went out for several months, and I found myself really enjoying his company. The feeling was mutual. After several months I told him I was developing feelings for him, more than just friends. He told me he was gay. I was shocked, saddened and angry all at the same time, but we went on to develop an even stronger friendship. I have fallen in love with him, but I have had counseling and I believe those feelings are in check. We have a special bond that’s hard to explain. For lack of a better term, we have used the words “soul mate”

DEAR ABBY ADVICE to describe this feeling. He has even said he would like a lifelong commitment with me and has thought about marrying me. He said holding hands, walks on the beach and romantic things aren’t a problem for him to share with me, but he cannot offer me anything sexual. He wants to share his life with me. We aren’t kids — we’re in our 40s and 50s. He’s a wonderful man, and I do want him in my life. Is it wrong to think about a future with him? — Confused On What to Do Dear Confused: It’s not wrong to


think about it. But while you’re thinking, consider carefully how important sex is to you. Some, not all, women would be content with what he’s offering. But what if you should meet someone? You also need to know whether this man is ready, willing and capable of forgoing a sexual relationship with a man. How would you feel about it if HE met someone? My advice is not to make a decision this important alone. Check in with your therapist and examine all of your feelings there. Also, contact the Straight Spouse Network, which was mentioned in a recent column, and talk frankly with others who are involved in mixed relationships. You’ll find it online at www.


Dear Abby: I grew up thinking my mother was a good cook. Now that I’m married and have lived away from home for 10 years, I realize that Mom, with all her good intentions, was an awful cook. She was never adventurous, prefers canned and frozen foods, no vegetables and highly processed grains. I have chosen a completely opposite path and buy lots of natural, unprocessed fresh foods. As a result, I now cook all the holiday meals — with Mom helping with the prep and small tasks. I have tried to encourage her to eat better and expand her horizons, but it isn’t sinking in. Every time we have dinner at her house, I feel like I have just eaten at a fast-food establishment. I don’t want to be a control freak and say, “My way with dinners at my

house only,” but I’m struggling to find a compromise when she wants to “treat” us to dinner at her place. Suggestions? — Foodie in Colorado Dear Foodie: It’s one thing to be a “foodie” and another to be a food snob. A “fast-food” meal once every few weeks won’t kill you, so be a sport and let your mom reciprocate. And the next day, return to your normal routine to make up for it. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). The best leaders understand that leadership is a humbling position. To adopt a vision that is right for everyone in your group, you have to really listen well to the others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a curious, experimental mood, and you’ll lead with your sense of fun and adventure. Because of this, you will land in a magical state of mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s a lucky day for retail therapy because you’ll accurately estimate what you need. You’ll get a lot of use out of what you purchase today, and you’ll get the best price, too. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You never want to be a nag. That’s why you’ll search for the most enticing and imaginative way to keep someone thinking about the benefits of doing what you want them to do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some friends need more patience and compassion than others. Being a good pal sometimes means having to overlook thoughtless comments, especially when they were clearly not intended to harm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You love to nurture others and witness their development. You will experience one of your favorite kind of moments today — the one where you see the lights come on because a person finally understands. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As the sign of the scales, you balance opposing qualities in a way that makes others marvel. For

instance, today you are simultaneously confident and modest, powerful and empowering. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s easy for you to get attention when you want it. But you’re not always sure what to do with it once you have it. Get back in touch with your purpose. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to know what motivates people, and you also want to know how they do what they do. Your curiosity will make others feel important, and they will want to share openly with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Levity and mischief are in order. Refuse to be too serious, and for a while, it will seem as though you live outside the fixed rules and structures of ordinary existence. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve had some luck with the game you’ve been playing. Your winnings satisfied you for a time, but that time is over. Now you want to raise the stakes again to make things interesting. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may not be in charge, but you are in the know about what’s going on with your people, and this gives you a certain influence. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 25). Education is your ticket to success, and you’ll quickly learn what you need to know. June features the loving words you long to hear. You’ll attract money in July. Resist using it to establish your status. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 26, 43, 9, 45 and 28.
