THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS WEEK

Memorial Day began in New York state as a way to honor Union soldiers who had died in the Civil War. It was called “Decoration Day” back in 1866, from the practice of “decorating” the graves of the fallen. Over the years, it’s evolved into a commemoration of all the men and women who have died in service for America. Since today is Memorial Day, among all the parades and backyard cookouts, take a moment to remember that fact. Since it’s through their sacrifice that we are able to celebrate the day like we do.

America’s newest veterans are filing for disability benefits at a historic rate, claiming to be the most medically and mentally troubled generation of former troops the nation has ever seen.

It’s unclear how much worse off these new veterans are than their predecessors. Many factors are driving the dramatic increase in claims — the weak economy, more troops surviving wounds, and more awareness of problems such as concussions and PTSD. Almost one-third have been granted disability so far. Government officials and some veterans’ advocates say that veterans who might have been able to work with certain disabilities may be more inclined to seek benefits now because they lost jobs or can’t find any. Aggressive outreach and advocacy efforts also have brought more veterans into the system, which must evaluate each claim to see if it is warrelated. Payments range from $127 a month for a 10 percent disability to $2,769 for a full one.

Tommy Lee Jones, left, and Will Smith star in a scene from ‘Men in Black 3.’ The sequel was the top film over the weekend, pushing aside Marvel’s ‘Avengers,’ which has been on top for three weekends.

‘Men in Black’ beat ‘Avengers’ By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES — The suits have knocked off the superheroes at the box office. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones’ sequel “Men in Black 3” debuted as the No. 1 movie over Memorial Day weekend with $55 million domestically from Friday to Sunday. That bumps Disney’s “The Avengers” into second-place after three blockbuster weekends on top for the superhero sensation. “The Avengers” took in $37 million over the three days to push its domestic total to $514 million and become only the fourth movie ever to top half a billion dollars. Distributor Sony estimates that by the end of the four-day holiday weekend Monday, “Men in Black 3” will have pulled in $70 million domestically and $202 million worldwide. Universal’s “Battleship” was No. 3 in its second weekend with $10.8 million, raising its domestic earnings to $44.3 million. Paramount’s comedy “The Dictator” took in $9.6 million to finish fourth in its second weekend and lift its total to $41.5 million. The Warner Bros. horror tale “Chernobyl Diaries” opened at No. 5 with $8 million. “Men in Black 3” launched with a bit more cash than its two predecessors, which both had opening weekends of just above $50 million. But the original “Men in Black” debuted in 1997 and “Men in Black II” premiered in 2002, when admission prices were much lower than today’s. That means “Men in Black 3” sold fewer tickets than the previous installments. “Men in Black 3” reunites Smith’s Agent J and Jones’ Agent K as they battle a new alien menace that travels four decades back in time to do away with the younger Agent K (Josh Brolin). Among the movie’s box-office highlights overseas were debuts of $19.5 million in China, $18.9 million in Russia, $8.5 million in South Korea and $8 million in Japan.

Distributor Disney estimates that “The Avengers” will take in $47.1 million for the four-day holiday weekend, lifting the film’s domestic total to $523.8 million. That will put “The Avengers” within $10 million of “The Dark Knight,” the No. 3 movie on the all-time revenue chart with $533.3 million domestically. “The Avengers” will pass “The Dark Knight” in the coming week, leaving only two movies above it: “Avatar” at $760.5 million and “Titanic” at $658.5 million. With $26.3 million overseas, “The Avengers” raised its international total to $781.6 million, and its worldwide revenues to just under $1.3 billion. “The Avengers” will soon overtake “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” at $1.33 billion to become the No. 3 film on the global revenue list, again behind “Avatar” at $2.8 billion and “Titanic” at $2.2 billion. Overall domestic receipts for the four-day Memorial Day weekend will come in well behind last year’s record of $276 million. Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com, estimated that four-day revenues this time will total $195 million to $200 million, about 30 percent below Memorial Day weekend a year ago, when “The Hangover Part II” delivered a $100 million-plus debut. Hollywood remains on a record pace this year, with domestic revenue so far at $4.24 billion, up 12.5 percent over 2011 receipts, according to Hollywood.com. But “The Avengers” and now “Men in Black 3” have been the only notable successes for the summer season so far, with big releases such as “Dark Shadows” and “Battleship” fizzling on the domestic front. “We really need to get going if we don’t want to have play catch-up every weekend through the summer,” Dergarabedian said. “Some of these summer movies are just not doing the business people had hoped for in North America.”

Golden Gate celebrated Landmark bridge’s 75th birthday marked

OBITUARIES

AN FRANCISCO — Crowds gathered along San Francisco’s waterfront Sunday, while San Francisco Bay was crowded with pleasure boats, tug boats and other vessels as the city celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge.

were expected to flock to the area to enjoy a number of events taking place along a section of waterfront stretching from Fort Point south of the bridge to Pier 39 along The Embarcadero. At least several thousand people had gathered along the waterfront by Sunday afternoon, said Mary Currie, public affairs director for the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District. “Everyone is biking and walking and looks very happy,” she said. “We’re off to a great start.” San Francisco resident Daniel Sutphin and his family were among those in the crowd enjoying the day and the views of the bridge. “It’s such an iconic structure, depending on the day or the hour, it just looks like it changes continuously,” Sutphin said as he walked through the Fort Point area with his wife and their three young children. Since it opened in 1937, more than 2 billion vehicles have crossed the 1.7-mile-long bridge named after the Golden Gate Strait, the entrance of water to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean, and championed by engineer Joseph Strauss in the 1920s. Because of the crowds expected and with no parking available near

MIAMI — The fight between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin began with two people huffing and puffing in the dark, and then a brief exchange of bitter words. It wasn’t long before the two

were wrestling on the ground, and one of them let out such gutwrenching howls that several people in the neighborhood thought they might have come from dogs. Witnesses said the tussle grew louder as it made its way up a dark pathway, past several patios, from the concrete back on to grass. From there, witness accounts diverge. “The one guy was throwing blows MMA style,” a man called Witness No. 6 told Sanford Po-

the bridge, officials were urging people to take mass transit to the events. The California Highway Patrol was planning on shutting down traffic across the bridge from 9 p.m. through 10 p.m. for a monumental fireworks display set to take place over the bridge. In a stark contrast to the thousands of celebrants, members of the group the Bridge Rail Foundation, an organization dedicated to stopping suicide jumps from the bridge, erected a display of 1,558 pairs of shoes, representing the number of people who died in leaps from the bridge since it opened in 1937. “It’s a symbol of how deep and serious this problem has been,” said Paul Muller, a spokesman for the group. “We’re still losing 30 to 35 people a year off the bridge,” he said. Meanwhile, on the water, Golden Gate ferries were running again after a one-day strike disrupted service across San Francisco Bay on Saturday. Workers represented by the In-

I don’t know if you ever got hit on concrete, it hurts.” His recorded interview with Sanford Police was just two minutes long. But like several of the nearly two dozen witnesses interviewed by four different law en-

forcement agencies, Witness No. 6 was hampered by darkness and, the evidence suggests, influenced by news. A review of the testimony of witnesses to the Feb. 26 killing shows several of them modified their accounts or grew skeptical of their own recollections after weeks of news coverage. Several said they reshaped their stories because of what they learned on TV. In addition, some people heard a second shot that was never fired and saw shirts nobody

Together, the testimony they offer is contradictory, and underscores the unreliability of eyewitness testimony. “Memory does not function like a videotape that records everything and can be replayed at will,” said Karen Newirth, an eyewitness identification litigation fellow at the Innocence Project, a national organization that works to exonerate innocent people. “People remember pieces of events, and then fill in the blanks with what makes sense.”

Sem graduates with honor, gratitude One hundred and three receive diplomas at prestigious school’s 168th commencement. By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

KINGSTON -- One hundred and three students from nine states and six other countries graduated during Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School’s 168th commencement on Sunday. It was standing room only in the school’s sweltering gym as attendees fanned themselves with the commencement programs to keep cool. The threat of thunderstorms forced the ceremony, which is usually held on the Back Cam-

pus, indoors. “We recognize there are individuals within this school that are very similar, very willing to let us open up, grow and do the same in return,” said Sean Banul of Pittston as he addressed his fellow graduates. “And for that, I think we should all be incredibly grateful for being in a place where there are those kinds of individuals and memories.” Dr. John J. Moriarity, chair of the school’s English Department, said he feels honored to have lived amongst so many leaders during his 40-year tenure.

HAZLETON

Hazleton General Hospital was a recipient of the 2012 HealthGrades Patient Safety Excellence Award, indicating that its patient safety ratings are in the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals. Hazleton General is one of only 263 hospitals in the country to receive the designation and is also one of only three hospitals in Pennsylvania to accomplish this for five years in a row. A study finds that Medicare patients at Patient Safety Excellence Award hospitals were almost 48 percent less likely to experience one of 13 preventable safety events compared to hospitals in the bottom 5 percent in the nation. HealthGrades analyzed the following patient safety events for this study: death in procedures where mortality is usually very low; pressure or bed sores acquired in hospital; death following a serious complication after surgery; foreign object left in body during a procedure; collapsed lung due to procedure or surgery; catheter-related bloodstream infections acquired at hospital; hemorrhage or hematoma resulting from procedure or surgery; electrolyte and fluid imbalance, hip fracture, respiratory failure, sepsis or deep blood clots in lungs or legs following surgery; and breakdown of abdominal incision site.

UTLER TWP. – Twelve-year-old Devin Reed is as excited as he is nervous to compete in the 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. “I’m studying harder words and studying every day,” said Devin, a sixth-grader at Drums Elementary Middle School. He won the 2012 Times Leader/ Scripps NEPA Regional Spelling Bee in March, triumphing over competitors when he correctly spelled the word “leechcraft” – meaning “the art of healing” or “skill of a physician.”

Devin, of Drums, knows the words will get harder during the national spelling bee as he will be competing against 277 other spellers, including 11 from Pennsylvania. “I’ve been studying online tests and using Spell It!, which I used last time,” he said, noting there were several other study methods he has been using. Spell It! is a study site for school spelling champions created in cooperation with Merriam-Webster the dictionary people. The competition runs from Tuesday, beginning with round-one tests, through Thursday, the

Mosquitoes, ants and spiders are pests normally seen during the spring and summer months, but now a newcomer is gaining attention and growing in population, the brown stink bug. Noted by its shield-like body, and defensive cilantro-like scent, the stink bug will not harm humans but will eat crops. Local farms have been warned to keep a weary eye out for the bugs, but there have not been any reported outbreaks in farms in Luzerne County yet, said Greg Krawczyk, entomologist at the Penn State Fruit Research and Extension Center in Biglerville, and John Esslinger, horticulture educator with Penn State Extension.Whether it was the rainy weather last year or other climate conditions, Chris Dymond, of Dymonds Farms in Dallas, said they have not had any issues with the pest. “We did not have a problem with them -- yet,” he said. In February 2011, he attended a meeting about stink bugs and remembered hearing that they often fall to the ground or crawl under a leaf when “they feel the vibration of the tractor coming through the fields.” What makes this bug difficult to fight is that it uses a tube-like appendage to puncture the produce to suck out the juice, Krawczyk said.

Also, Esslinger said farmers will not see the adult insect feeding in the fields until mid-summer and into the fall. Crops that are a favorite target are peppers, tomatoes, peaches, apples and sweet corn. “Often, peaches are the first crop showing damage,” Esslinger said. The bug, originally from China, Japan and Taiwan, has thrived in the U.S. due to a lack of natural predators and favorable climate conditions, said Krawczyk. The bug sometimes reproduces two generations during one growing season, said Esslinger. The first reported sighting of the bug in the United State was in September 1998 in Allentown, and now can be found in 35 states, Krawczyk said. “It is a hardy bug,” he said. Many Wyoming Valley resi-

dents already know the bug is notorious for hibernating in homes. Dan Stillarty, operations manager of Ehrlich, Ashley, said his firm has been receiving more calls every year to get rid of stink bugs. “It gets a little worse every year,” he said. “It is similar to the ladybug outbreak several years ago.” The best advice Stillarty gives homeowners is to seal up any gaps on the outside of their homes to prevent the bug from gaining entry. Once inside, they are hard to remove, he said. He recommends sucking them up in the vacuum and changing the bag frequently. “We do not like to spray inside a home,” he said. “We will spray points of entry outside a home in the fall, but it is not 100 percent effective.” Esslinger said some other insects such as the praying mantis and some spiders will eat the brown stink bugs, but it is not enough to control the quickly growing population. Krawczyk said testing is being done on the stink bugs’ natural predators and the possible effects of introducing the predators into the United States.

ic dean and member of the History Department, received the Frances and Louis Maslow Upper School Teaching Award in recognition of his effective teaching, support of the academic program and ideals of the school, and for his positive influence on the lives of the students.

NEW YORK — It’s Memorial Day weekend and our national obsession with the price of gasoline is in focus once again. We’ll spend a little less at the pump than a few weeks ago, but that won’t stop us from muttering to ourselves, griping to friends and pointing fingers in many directions. Our rants about gasoline and the oil industry may not always be based on facts, but one thing is undeniable: Americans are obsessed with the price of gasoline. More than any other good or service we buy. In the language of economists, the price of gasoline is “salient.” That means it sticks in our brains. Here’s why: We’re reminded of the price every time we pass a gas station and see those huge, numbered signs. We buy gas every week, unlike bills we pay monthly or a couple times a year. Milk is $4 a gallon, but we buy only one. When we fill up with gas, we

spend $50 or more. And the biggest frustration, which comes into focus as the numbers spin ever higher at the pump: There is no alternative. “The oil companies have cornered the market and they are squeezing us for everything we have,” says Bob Simpson, 62, of Lodi, N.J., who pays close to $60 to fill up his Ford Escape. Cheap gas makes the wide open spaces of America seem

year. Also, oil and gasoline are priced on financial exchanges, not by oil companies. Investors can buy oil and gasoline futures contracts — and push up prices — if they fear supplies could be disrupted in the future. But they also can bet that prices will go down. When President Barack Obama promised stricter oversight of oil markets and a crackdown on “speculators” last month, he stopped short of saying market manipulation was responsible for the current high prices. Still, the market forces just don’t feel right. “People like the idea of a free-market economy but they don’t like feeling abused. The fluctuations in the gas prices make people believe this is not an outcome of a free market,” says Daniel Airely, a professor of Behavioral Economics at Duke University and author of the book “Predictably Irrational.” Of course, dramatic price rises are common to many markets. The difference with gasoline, and a big part of the reason we are obsessed, is that people who need to get to work or want to

Performers ran the gamut from local DJs and bands to national acts,suchasRiverStreetJazzCafé staple Indobox and a Talking Heads tribute band Start Making Sense. “Obviously, some people came out to see this performer or that, but that’s not all they stayed for,”

Perry said. “We’re seeing a lot of people taking their time and visiting each stage, or the vendors, and really enjoying the event as a whole.” Pete Levy was someone who walked into Mayday not knowing a thing. “I’m from out of town, visiting family, and they suggested we come hang out here today,” the Newton, N.J. resident said. “I’m honestly blown away by this.

There’s a lot to do here, it’s for a good cause, and it’s just nice to see a local event getting so much support.” “Although I do enjoy live bands, it’s nice to see DJs and artists like this have a shot at showing what they’ve got,” Serena Safford of Wilkes-Barre said, “and no matter whereyouwalkyoucanhearsome sort of music.

full of possibility and adventure. When it’s expensive, we think twice before setting out. “Driving is a symbol of freedom in the U.S.,” says Shanjun Li, an economist who studies consumer behavior at Cornell University’s Dyson School of Applied Economics. At a nationwide average Friday of $3.67 per gallon, gasoline is far cheaper in the U.S. than much of the rest of the world, thanks to relatively low taxes. In Japan, gas costs more than $7 a gallon; in Britain, nearly $9. Yet Americans consider cheap gas a birthright, so it’s a shock when factors beyond our control drive up the price. People understand why a big TV costs more than a small one, or why tickets to a playoff game are more expensive than a regular season game. But it’s harder to appreciate why a local gas station charges more because of high oil demand in China or a remark by an official in Iran. It must be, we reason, that someone is taking advantage of us. It’s not the case, of course: The market for oil and gasoline is global, so rising demand anywhere can push up prices everywhere. And world oil demand is forecast to rise to a record this

hours, according to police. But to convince a jury beyond a reasonable doubt, prosecutors need more than the confession, even though corroboration isn’t necessarily required by law, legal experts say. Piecing together that supporting evidence may be difficult: There’s no body and no physical evidence, plus a history of famous false confessions in other high-profile cases. “We live in a day of CSI, fingerprinting, DNA, hand samples, and foot prints and treads on bottoms of shoes and boots. There’s going to be none of that here, and that’s tough,” said Arthur Aidala, a former prosecutor who is now a criminal defense attorney. “You’re essentially relying on this guy’s own words, and whether he’s credible.”

Georgians protest president

Georgian opposition supporters gather on the square in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, Sunday, with the column of George the Victorious in the center. Tens of thousands have thronged the streets of Tbilisi to show their opposition to President Mikhail Saakashvili, in the largest anti-government demonstration in three years.

NEW YORK — For prosecutors, the work is just beginning after the astonishing arrest last week of a man who police say confessed to strangling a 6year-old New York City boy 33 years ago in one of the nation’s most bewildering missing children’s cases. Pedro Hernandez, 51, was charged with second-degree murder in the 1979 death of Etan Patz, based largely on a signed confession he gave after he spoke voluntarily to detectives for

False confessions are common and happen for many reasons, said James Cohen, a law professor at Fordham University, “whether it’s that someone is coerced, scared, or is just a wacko looking for 15 minutes of fame.” Among the most well-known was John Mark Karr, who in 2006 said he killed JonBenet Ramsey, the 6-year-old beauty queen found dead in her parents’ Boulder, Colo., home a decade earlier. Karr was whisked from Thailand, where he was teaching, to Colorado and was arrested, but he was released after prosecutors concluded he couldn’t have killed her. The case remains unsolved. The likelihood of DNA evidence emerging in Etan’s case is slim.

The Whitewater-Baldy Complex fire continued to grow, burning more than 122,000 acres, or 191 square miles, by mid-day Sunday and was about two miles away from the privately owned ghost town of Mogollon in southwestern New Mexico. The town was evacuated Saturday due to extreme winds, but no homes there have been destroyed. MARKA AIRBASE, JORDAN

Palestinian Airlines in flight Palestinian Airlines is back in the skies after being grounded for seven years by the deepening enmities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Once hailed as a symbol of Palestinian statehood dreams, the carrier is a tiny operation, with just two 48-seat turboprop planes, two weekly flights and a borrowed hub in Egypt. In the late 1990s, when Palestinians appeared on the verge of a statehood deal with Israel, Palestinian Airlines operated from Gaza International Airport and planned to expand to Europe. Those ambitions were crushed by the outbreak of a Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation in September 2000, following the collapse of U.S.-led peace talks.

Three top candidates in Egypt’s presidential race filed appeals to the election commission ahead of the deadline Sunday, alleging violations in the first round vote that they say could change the outcome. The appeals, alleging fraud, are likely to enflame an already explosive race, with two of the most polarizing candidates finishing first. Preliminary results from last week’s election placed Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi and Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, as the two candidates entering a June 16-17 runoff. Thirteen candidates were on the ballot. Official first-round results are expected today or Tuesday.

NNAPOLIS, Md. — Gay students at America’s military service academies are wrapping up the first year when they no longer had to hide their sexual orientation, benefiting from the end of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy that used to bar them from seemingly ordinary activities like taking their partners openly to graduation events. For the first time, gay students at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis were able to take a same-sex date to the academy’s Ring Dance for third-year midshipmen. The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., officially recognized a club for gay students this month. And gay cadets at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., are relieved they no longer have to worry about revealing their sexuality. Several gay students from the nation’s major military academies said the September repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” an 18-year-old legal provision under which gays could serve as long as they didn’t openly

acknowledge their sexual orientation, meant significant change. “For the most part, it allows us to be a complete person, as opposed to compartmentalizing our lives into different types of boxes,” said newly commissioned Air Force 2nd Lt. Dan Dwyer, who graduated from the Air Force Academy on Wednesday. West Point held its graduation Saturday, and the Naval Academy’s was set for Tuesday. At West Point, the alumni gay advocacy group Knights Out was able to hold the first installment in March of what is intended to be an annual dinner in recognition of gay and lesbian graduates and cadets. Cadet Kaitlyn Kelly was among

The 22-year-old Chicago resident was finally able to openly introduce her civilian girlfriend at an event marking 100 days before graduation. “It was a remarkable thing for me, because I had taken her to previous things ... but I had to do the ambiguous, ‘Oh, she’s my best friend.’ ”

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Sunday defended the Obama administration’s plans to wind down the more than decadelong war in Afghanistan, saying the U.S. is on “the right track.” “We still have a fight on our hands,” Panetta said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “The American people need to know that.

Afghanistan by the end of 2014. Republicans, including Mitt Romney, have criticized President Barack Obama’s insistence on setting a firm timetable for the war because they say it shows a lack of commitment to the region and encourages enemy fighters to wait out a U.S. departure. Panetta said critics of the plan should be mindful that the timetable has been embraced by approximately 50 allied nations. “That is the plan that has been agreed to. And it’s a plan that is work-

through — is to be able to set the kind of timelines that have been set here in order to ensure that we fulfill the mission of an Afghanistan that governs and secures itself,” he added. Panetta also reiterated his criticism of the conviction of a Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find and kill terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, calling the lengthy prison sentence handed to Dr. Shakil Afridi “disturbing.” Panetta called the U.S. relationship with Pakistan “one of the most complicated we’ve had.”

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting Sunday afternoon to hear a briefing from the head of the U.N. observer mission in Syria on the massacre in the town of Houla, with Russia questioning whether Syrian tanks and artillery were responsible. Russia’s deputy U.N. Ambassador Alexander Pankin told reporters as he headed into the closed-door meeting that “there is substantial ground to believe that the majority of those who were killed were either slashed, cut by knives, or executed at point-blank distance.” Britain and Russia, which France had proposed issuing a considers Syria its press statement closest Mideast condemning the ally, has used its attack on civilSecurity Council ians and pointing the finger at the veto power to Syrian govern- block resolutions ment for Friday’s raising the possimassacre.

Mood told the council that U.N. observers at the scene now estimate that about 108 people were killed in Houla, U.N. peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous told reporters outside the council chamber. Mood said Saturday that more than 32 children under the age of 10 were among the dead. He said then that the observers confirmed from examination of ordnance found at the scene that artillery and tank shells were fired. Russia, which considers Syria its closest Mideast ally, has used its Security Council veto power to block resolutions raising the possibility of U.N. action against President Bashar Assad. The assault on Houla was one of the bloodiest single events in Syria’s 15month uprising against Assad’s regime. A council diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that after Mood’s briefing, council members began working on the text of a press statement that would be along the lines of a statement issued Saturday by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and his predecessor Kofi Annan, the joint U.N.Arab League envoy to Syria. Their statement condemned the “indiscriminate and disproportionate use of force” in violation of international law and Syrian commitments to stop using heavy weapons in populated areas. They demanded that the Syrian government stop using such weapons. The Syrian government on Sunday denied responsibility for the Houla massacre.

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Antwoine Tinson, 18, of Simpson Street, and a 17-yearold boy from Wilkes-Barre were charged Sunday in connection with the assault of Meghann Jones at a residence on Carlisle Street. Jones, of Essex Lane, said she was in the residence around 3 p.m. when one of the suspects put a gun to her head and told her to shut up. The two suspects stole her money and cellphone and fled, driving off in a green Ford station wagon. Tow-truck operator Bob Kadluboski said he notified police the car was parked near a residence in the 100 block of Poplar Street. Police took Tinson and the juvenile into custody along with others on Poplar Street. Tinson was charged with aggravated and simple assault and terroristic threats and was awaiting arraignment. The juvenile was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, receiving stolen property and persons not to possess a firearm. He was lodged in the Northampton County Juvenile Detention Center. PLYMOUTH -- Police are investigating the assault and robbery of a man in the 400 block of East Main Street early Sunday morning. The victim was kicked in the head and knocked to the ground by a group of people who stole money and other items from him around 1:55 a.m., police said. Anyone with information about the assault and robbery is asked to contact Plymouth police officers John Vanderlick or Anthony Gorey at 570 779-2147 or Luzerne County 911. PLYMOUTH – Police early Sunday morning arrested Andrew Drury, 22, of Downing Street, for allegedly pointing a gun at his ex-girlfriend and threatening to shoot her. Drury was charged with reck-

lessly endangering another person, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and harassment. He was arraigned by District Justice Donald Whittaker and committed to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $10,000 bail. According to arrest papers: Maria Villano and Drury exchanged text messages and at one point Drury said he wanted to fight her. Villano and another woman, Dawn Shook, agreed to meet Drury in the area of Powell Street and Aben Lane. The two women met Drury and he threatened Villano, pulling a black pistol from his shorts. He pointed it at her chest, according to the arrest papers, and asked, “Are you scared now? I am going to shoot you.” Shook was between Villano and Drury and started fighting with him to put down the gun. He lowered it and raised it again at Villano, according to the arrest papers. He fled towards his home when Shook began to call Luzerne County 911. When interviewed by police, Villano was visibly upset and broke down crying several times, saying she was in fear of her life. She was provided information about obtaining a Protection from Abuse order. Police looked for Drury and could see him through an open door at his residence sitting on a couch. He was handcuffed and directed police to the gun, a black 9mm Highpoint Model C9 with a magazine of six rounds in a holster on a nightstand in his bedroom. Police took Drury and the gun to the Plymouth police station. Police said Drury admitted he confronted Villano and pointed an Air Soft pellet gun at her. He said he threw the gun into a yard on Academy Street while running home. The gun could not be found where Drury said he threw it. Police said they found the pellet gun in Drury’s parents’ house, but it appeared it had not been moved for some time. Police said they took Drury

Airplane crashes, killing 4 The Associated Press

ST. GEORGE, Utah -- Security video captured a small plane taking off from a southern Utah airport just before it crashed about 300 yards from the runway, killing all four men aboard, a federal investigator said Sunday. Zoe Keliher of the National Transportation Safety Board said the video shows the singleengine Cessna 172 flying at a low level almost the length of the runway before making a rapid ascent early Saturday morning at St. George Municipal Airport. “Shortly after that, you see a descent of a few flickers of light but not the plane,” she told The Associated Press. Marc Mortensen, assistant to the St. George city manager, said officials believe the four men aboard the plane were killed upon impact. The wreckage wasn’t discovered until more than four hours later because the airport is not staffed at night, he added. The victims were identified Sunday as Colby Hafen, 28, and Christopher Chapman, 20, both of Santa Clara; Tanner Holt, 23, of Washington City; and Alexander Metzger, 22, of St. George.

Milk from contented beer-fed bovines? The Associated Press

BOXFORD, Mass. — Police say a roving group of cows crashed a small gathering in a Massachusetts town and bullied the guests for their beer. Boxford police Lt. James Riter said he was responding to a call for loose cows on Sunday and spotted them in a front yard. Riter said the herd high-tailed it for the backyard and then he heard screaming. He said that when he ran back there he saw the cows had chased off some young adults and were drinking their beers. Riter said the cows had knocked the beer cans over on a table and were lapping up what spilled. They even started rooting around the recycled cans for some extra drops, he said. Riter said the cows’ owner and some friends herded the animals back home.

WORLD OPINION

Long Afghanistan saga now entering new stage

P

RESIDENT Barack Obama’s dramatic arrival in Kabul aboard Air Force One under the cover of darkness was fitting finale to the cloak-anddagger operation that eliminated Osama bin Laden a year earlier. The trip also marked a symbolic beginning of the end of American intervention in Afghanistan. Obama offered clarification of the U.S. aim in coming years as troops withdraw, opening the door to regional powers playing a role. During the brief visit the United States and Afghanistan signed the much-awaited strategic partnership agreement. Afghanistan’s national security adviser described the pact as “providing a strong foundation for the security of Afghanistan, the region and the world, and is a document for the development of the region.” Of course, he’s right in

so far as this pact removes the ambiguity surrounding America’s post-2014 posture in Afghanistan, not only for Kabul, but also for New Delhi where there’s been growing concern about implications for regional stability after American withdrawal. Washington’s new message will have particular resonance in India and Pakistan as ties between the two South Asian neighbors remain the most important fault line in shaping Afghanistan’s future. As Washington and Kabul turn a new page in the Afghanistan saga, New Delhi should be keen to take this opportunity to become a more credible actor in its neighborhood. Washington has played its hand. It’s up to New Delhi to respond adequately. Khaleej Times Dubai, United Arab Emirates

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Because we have done so well, because we have been a big part of preventing another attack on U.S. soil, it is easier for people to forget we’re here.” Maj. George Kraehe The New Mexico Army National Guard officer has participated in 20 26.2-mile marathons as part of an effort to remind Americans of the approximately 2.2 million U.S. service members who’ve seen duty in the Middle Eastern war zones. More than 6,300 of them have died.

Afghan work remains

I

N AGREEING TO provide substantial, ongoing help to Afghanistan after the last NATO-led forces, including our own, leave at the end of 2014, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard is on the right track. Her pledge of $300 million to the $4.1 billion fund U.S. President Barack Obama is creating for the Afghan National Army after the allies withdraw is among the largest from any of the countries fighting in Afghanistan. It also provides a timely signal that, though we are on our way out of the country, we remain

committed to doing whatever we can to ensure it never again becomes a haven for terrorism. The sacrifice of the 33 Australians killed in Afghanistan, as well as the 200 who have been wounded, demands no less. That said, there is a need for caution and realism about what lies ahead. For all the hope surrounding the 2014 deadline and the ability of Afghans to fight their own war, the prospects remain challenging. Much has been achieved in Afghanistan. But much remains to be done.

overwhelming. Both Canada and Afghanistan benefited in many ways from this country’s military efforts. Afghanistan did not revert to being a refuge for the terrorists of al-Qaida – the primary reason for the war. Millions of girls went to school who otherwise would not have, and women assumed roles in the Afghan parliament. But girls and women are still being jailed for such “moral crimes” as fleeing rape, abuse or underage marriage. And the Afghan National Army is far from ready to keep the country secure from the violent zealotry of the Taliban. The Globe and Mail, Toronto

MALLARD FILLMORE

A NOTE to politicians and public administrators: When you say “We have an unwritten policy,” you are saying “We have an oxymoron.” When you say “We have an unwritten policy” involving hiring people or doling out money for travel expenses, you are saying “we are morons.” It’s an oxymoron because an “unwritten policy” in dealing with tax money is no policy at all. Try it at work. Assure your boss you landed an “unwritten contract” with a client. Have your kids tell teachers they fulfilled the assignment with an “unwritten essay.” Ask the cop writing the speeding citation for an “unwritten ticket” you will pay with an “unwritten check.” And it’s moronic because in this, Our Age of Endless Corruption, the stupidity of “unwritten policies” has been laid bare. How many public officials need to go to prison before someone sees the correlation of “unwritten” and “abused”? There are times when invoking an “unwritten policy” is innocuous enough. “I have an unwritten policy against dating co-workers,” say, or “I have an unwritten policy of not eating raw sushi from a hot dog street stand on sweltering summer days.” But there was nothing innocuous when Wilkes-Barre’s city officials recently told reporter Terrie Morgan-Besecker that money is met-

MARK GUYDISH COMMENTARY ed out for council travel expenses through an “unwritten policy.” And the alleged policy for meal money is inane: Give each person a flat rate of up to $93 per day for meals, no questions asked, no receipts required. The three-day conference started with a free lunch and ended after a free breakfast? Here’s $93 a day. The taxpayer-funded conference fee included meals? Here’s $93 a day. You ordered off Wendy’s dollar menu while the other councilman had lobster tail at Café Tres Cher? Here’s $93 a day, for each of you. My favorite quote from Morgan-Besecker’s exposé? Councilman Bill Barrett justifying the need for lunch money even if the meal was included: “Lunch was provided at most, but it was very hit or miss. I haven’t always had the best experience with those. There would be certain things out on the floor, but when you get there, there’s nothing there.” Two thoughts: 1) Get there in time for the meal; 2) If you are there on time and they are out of food, demand they give you what taxpayers bought. I have a third thought about where the phrase “there’s nothing there” applies, but it would be a below- the-belt (or more exactly, an above the neck) insult of Barrett.

Second favorite quote? City Clerk Jim Ryan guessing why the “unwritten policy” provides a flat per diem meal rate: “I believe the reason was it was a sense of fairness, that everyone follow the same standard and had the same amount of per diem. That way somebody was not getting more than someone else by having a higher-cost meal.” Note that at no point was the taxpayer mentioned, as in: “We wanted to be fair to taxpayers, so we reimbursed only if meals weren’t included in the conference fee, and only after council members submitted receipts, and we posted the receipts online to be as transparent as possible.” Arguably, Ryan is just following whatever pathetic “unwritten policy” he inherited from the anonymous nonwriters. Which is the inherent failure of an “unwritten policy.” No one penned it, so no one can take credit or blame. No one can point to it in deciding whether it was followed. No one can sift through meeting minutes and see when it was formally adopted. And no one can amend or change it because it doesn’t physically exist. And to the Wilkes-Barre Council members and other public officials asking why I’m not mentioning all the good things they do, the answer is simple. I put that stuff in an unwritten column.

Canada does its part

ANADIAN PRIME Minister Stephen Harper was once accused by the Liberals of improvising the war in Afghanistan, as if one could script a decade-long war ahead of time. He has now announced an end to the Canadian military mission as of March 31, 2014. It is the right thing to do, at the right time. Enough is enough – until the next one. The fatigue in this country with the loss of life of Canadian soldiers, the intermittent progress, the government corruption, the obstacles that never seem to diminish, such as Pakistan playing both sides, and the enormous financial burden, is

Nation’s naval heritage well worth preserving

A

t 6:19 a.m. May 1, 1898, Commodore George Dewey, onboard the protected cruiser Olympia, gave the order “You may fire when ready, Gridley.” Several hours later the Spanish fleet in Manila Bay, Philippine Islands, was destroyed. This victory was symbolic of the United States entry upon the world stage as a rising world power. In February 1958, the Olympia was decommissioned at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, whereupon it was rehabilitated via private donations and moored at the end of Market Street, Philadelphia. This vessel was not only involved in the battle of Manila Bay. In 1919 it brought back to the United States the remains of the Unknown Soldier from Europe and in 1921 it transported U.S. Army troops returning to the United States from Russia, where they served with an allied expeditionary force in Archangel and Murmansk. Sadly, this grand old vessel is in jeopardy. It requires about $10 million in renovations in order to keep it afloat. Other-

wise, the Olympia might be scrapped or sunk. Recently, I read that the USS Iowa will be preserved. Other vessels preserved are the USS Wisconsin, Missouri, Alabama and North Carolina. The British government is spending $42 million to preserve the HMS Victory, Lord Nelson’s flagship at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Most foreigners I’ve met have a keen interest in their nation’s history. But here we don’t seem to care. It might be symbolic of national decline. Let’s hope the Olympia is not consigned to a watery grave.

understand our nation’s budget is out of control and has gotten worse, mostly during the 2002-08 era. It seems Congress has only one agenda: cut Social Security and Medicare. And with a cut in the Farm Bill, it will jeopardize funding to feed our children in favor of low taxes on the rich 1 percent, increasing the number of children who go to bed hungry. Increased military spending has to stop. We are the most powerful country in the world; we do not have to spend trillions to promote democracy around the globe. Congress has to concentrate on bringing back manufacturing to this country and promoting job growth so we can generate more tax dollars, rather than have the highest unemployment rate in more than 60 years. Eliminate work visas longer than two years for our huge influx of the Hispanic population. Feed our children first, because there should not be one child in this country who cannot get nutritious daily meals.

More from Guard, Reserves The AP spent three months reviewing records and talking with doctors, government officials and former troops to take stock of the new veterans. They are different in many ways from those who fought before them. More are from the Reserves and National Guard — 28 percent of those filing disability claims — rather than career military. Reserves and National Guard made up a greater percentage of troops in these wars than they did in previous ones. About 31 percent of Guard/Reserve new veterans have filed claims compared to 56 percent of career military ones. More of the new veterans are women, accounting for 12 percent of those who have sought care through the VA. Women also served in greater numbers in these wars than in the past. Some female veterans are claiming PTSD due to military sexual trauma — a new challenge from a disability rating standpoint, Hickey said.

Army Pfc. Kevin Trimble, 19, adjusts his myoelectric upper limb prosthetic for occupational therapy at the Center for the Intrepid at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. At 19, Kevin has lost both legs above the knee and an arm from a bomb in Afghanistan.

The new veterans have different types of injuries than previous veterans did. That’s partly because improvised bombs have been the main weapon and because body armor and improved battlefield care allowed many of them to survive wounds that in past wars proved fatal. “They’re being kept alive at unprecedented rates,” said Dr. David Cifu, the VA’s medical rehabilitation chief. More than 95 percent of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan have survived. Larry Bailey II is an example. After tripping a rooftop bomb in Afghanistan last June, the 26year-old Marine remembers flying into the air, then fellow troops attending to him. “I pretty much knew that my legs were gone. My left hand, from what I remember I still had three fingers on it,” although they didn’t seem right, Bailey said. “I looked a few times but then they told me to stop looking.” Bailey, who is from Zion, Ill., north of Chicago, ended up a triple amputee and expects to get a hand transplant this summer.

He is still transitioning from active duty and is not yet a veteran. Just over half of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans eligible for VA care have used it so far. Of those who have sought VA care: • More than 1,600 of them lost a limb; many others lost fingers or toes. • At least 156 are blind, and thousands of others have impaired vision. • More than 177,000 have hearing loss, and more than 350,000 report tinnitus — noise or ringing in the ears. • Thousands are disfigured, as many as 200 of them so badly that they may need face transplants. One-quarter of battlefield injuries requiring evacuation included wounds to the face or jaw, one study found.

ming in some of the lobby areas. The system can be updated instantly by staff, from a cellphone or home computer, and the content can be put in the system ahead of time to deliver scheduled messages to the rooms of the residents where they spend most of their time. The system has the capacity for additional services, said Heiser. It can play videos and background music and the staff can “put a lot more photos on there,” he said. The digital technology can replace printed material, but more often print products are used to leverage the content on the signage, said Strand. “People have more recognition when they see it in different ways,” said Strand. “(Digital signage) just helps get it across more often.” he added.

StrandVision’s software starts at approximately $500 a year, said Strand. To get a screen running it costs between $1,000 and $1,500, he said. The signage is found in the lobbies of medical offices, stores, employee break rooms, schools, hotels and institutional settings among other places. Employees of banks or retail stores “don’t have to keep being bugged to push products” because digital signage takes care of that, said Strand. Employers can put the signage on their websites and on the home page of their employees’ web browsers too. “It definitely seems to be evolving,” said Strand.

said Malesic. “While these are people who are not claimed by a religious organization, it doesn’t mean they don’t attend church. They can fall into the so-called ‘spiritual but not religious’ category.” Some in the unclaimed category are atheists and agnostics, “and some just don’t care about religion. For them, religion just isn’t on the table,” Malesic said. “Forty percent of the county is unclaimed, but I don’t think you could say 40 percent of the county is totally non-religious.” Nationally, there are about 150 million religious adherents and about 158 million in the unclaimed category. And between 2000 and 2010, there was an increase of more than 7,000 congregations in the United States but almost 3 million fewer adherents. That might suggest there are more religious institutions popping up but fewer people going to them, Malesic said. “At any rate, we’ve got almost 3 million fewer adherents and almost 30 million more Americans. … It might just be that people are in a perpetual state of church hopping or church shopping, or they could have a certain kind of spirituality that doesn’t involve church attendance or membership,” he said.

40 percent are ‘unclaimed’ And while 60 percent of the people living in Luzerne County Mark Guydish/The Times Leader adhere to one particular religion, 40 percent of the population falls into the “unclaimed” category, acEastern Orthodoxy by 45.2 per- cording to the report. “One large and increasing relicent. gious group is what is referred to Steve Mocarsky, a Times Leader Muslims are increasing as the ‘Nones’ – people who claim staff writer, may be reached at 970At the same time, the number no specific religious affiliation,” 7311.

VETERANS As the nation commemorates the more than 6,400 troops who died in post-9/11 wars, the problems of those who survived also draw attention. These new veterans are seeking a level of help the government did not anticipate, and for which there is no special fund set aside to pay. The Department of Veterans Affairs is mired in backlogged claims, but “our mission is to take care of whatever the population is,” said Allison Hickey, the VA’s undersecretary for benefits. “We want them to have what their entitlement is.” The 21 percent who filed claims in previous wars is Hickey’s estimate of an average for Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The VA has details only on the current disability claims being paid to veterans of each war.

pects to start doing them soon on veterans. Others have invisible wounds. More than 400,000 of these new veterans have been treated by the VA for a mental health problem, most commonly, PTSD. Tens of thousands of veterans suffered traumatic brain injury, or TBI — mostly mild concussions from bomb blasts — and doctors don’t know what’s in store for them long-term. Cifu, of the VA, said that roughly 20 percent of active-duty troops suffered concussions, but only onethird of them have symptoms lasting beyond a few months. That’s still a big number, and “it’s very rare that someone has just a single concussion,” said David Hovda, director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center. Suffering multiple concussions, or one soon after another, raises the risk of long-term problems. A brain injury also makes the brain more susceptible to PTSD, he said. On a more mundane level, many new veterans have back, shoulder and knee problems, ag-

visit family may have no choice but to drive. When broccoli is expensive, we can buy asparagus instead. If flights to Paris are expensive in July, we can wait until November. Or visit Seattle instead. “We are powerless,” says Dave Bartiromo, 39, an internet marketing specialist from Wadsworth, Ohio. “I can get by just fine without orange juice if it’s expensive. Gas is my only option.” U.S. motorists spend far more than any other country at the pump — $470 billion last year. A typical family spends 8 percent of its household income on gasoline, according to the Oil Price

gravated by carrying heavy packs and wearing the body armor that helped keep them alive. One recent study found that 19 percent required orthopedic surgery consultations and 4 percent needed surgery after returning from combat. All of this adds up to more disability claims, which for years have been coming in faster than the government can handle them. The average wait to get a new one processed grows longer each month and is now about eight months — time that a frustrated, injured veteran might spend with no income. More than 560,000 veterans from all wars currently have claims that are backlogged — older than 125 days. The VA’s benefits chief, Hickey, gave these reasons: • Sheer volume. Disability claims from all veterans soared from 888,000 in 2008 to 1.3 million in 2011. Last year’s included more than 230,000 new claims from Vietnam veterans and their survivors because of a change in what conditions can be considered related to Agent Orange exposure. Those complex, 50-yearold cases took more than a third of available staff, she said. • High number of ailments per Information Service. That weighs on the mood of Americans. When prices are high, we worry about spending on other goods and our financial situation in general. Still, the concern over gasoline prices “is completely out of proportion with the financial damage it does,” says Amy Myers Jaffe, director of the Baker Institute Energy Forum at Rice University. In a study of reactions people had in 2008 when gasoline spiked above $4 a gallon for the first time, the Baker Institute and the Brookings Institution found that people’s happiness dropped as if their monthly income had fallen by $530, even though the damage was closer to $70 a month. Beyond those price signs in our faces, the high cost and the

claim. When a veteran claims 11 to 14 problems, each one requires “due diligence” — a medical evaluation and proof that it is servicerelated, Hickey said. • A new mandate to handle the oldest cases first. Because these tend to be the most complex, they have monopolized staff and pushed up average processing time on new claims, she said. • Outmoded systems. The VA is streamlining and going to electronic records, but for now, “We have 4.4 million case files sitting around 56 regional offices that we have to work with; that slows us down significantly,” Hickey said. Ordeals for vets, taxpayers Barry Jesinoski, executive director of Disabled American Veterans, called Hickey’s efforts “commendable,” but said: “The VA has a long way to go” to meet veterans’ needs. Even before the surge in Agent Orange cases, VA officials “were already at a place that was unacceptable” on backlogged claims, he said. He and VA officials agree that the economy is motivating some claims. His group helps veterans file them, and he said that sometimes when veterans come in, “We’ll say, ‘Is your back worse?’ and they’ll say, ‘No, I just lost my job.”’ Jesinoski does believe these veterans have more mental problems, especially from multiple deployments. “You just can’t keep sending people into war five, six or seven times and expect that they’re going to come home just fine,” he said. For taxpayers, the ordeal is just beginning. With any war, the cost of caring for veterans rises for several decades and peaks 30 to 40 years later, when diseases of aging are more common, said Harvard economist Linda Bilmes. She estimates the health care and disability costs of the recent wars at $600 billion to $900 billion. lack of an alternative, there are subtle factors that make us grumble about gasoline, experts say. We know that buying gasoline sends U.S. dollars abroad and supports countries whose interests don’t always line up with those of the United States. We also know that burning gasoline pollutes the air and contributes to climate change. We rarely consider that gasoline is amazing stuff. So packed with energy that one gallon can propel a family 30 miles down a highway in a 3,000 pound car at 70 miles an hour. It is so useful, convenient and, yes, cheap that we haven’t developed an economically viable alternative. But we’ve come to expect it to do all that it does at a much lower price than we pay today.

American was 26th seeded player in tournament, but has never liked the clay courts at Roland Garros.

PARIS — Easy to understand why Andy Roddick never enjoyed playing on red clay all that much. First and foremost, the footing is tricky as can be. The soft courts take his booming serves and forehands down a notch, too. Put simply, his game is built for hard or grass courts. As if that weren’t enough, he arrived at this French Open having played only 16 matches in a season interrupted by injuries to his right hamstring and right ankle. If Roddick was tempted to sit out Roland Garros altogether — or tempted to use his health or rust as an excuse for playing poorly — he did not. The 26th-seeded “Wasn’t American, once playing ranked No. 1 and once really well. a Grand Slam chamgave it a shot and I move just pion, came up short Sunday, exiting in a major tourhorrenopening dously out nament’s round for the first time here.

Of the seven previous major title winners in action on Day 1 in Paris, including Venus Williams in her first Grand Slam match since revealing in August she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, only Roddick was beaten. “Wasn’t playing really well. I move just horrendously out here. My first step is just so bad on this stuff,” Roddick said. “I feel like I’m always shuffling or hopping or not stopping or something.” Like Roddick, and for much the same reasons, Williams is not nearly as comfortable on clay as faster surfaces.

Remarkable career lands Keating in Hall of Fame By JOE BARESS For The Times Leader

AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER

Frank Keating, owner of Keating Fitness in Wilkes-Barre, was recently inducted into the Amateur Softball Association of Pennsylvania’s Hall of Fame. He pitched 50 no-hitters in a career spanning 2,800 games.

It all started with a tire, a piece of plywood and a baseball. That’s how local fast-pitch softball player Frank Keating Sr. learned to control his pitches at a young age. “When I didn’t have anybody around to play catch with, I used to hang a tire on a tree and put a piece of plywood behind the hole in the back,” Keating said. After a 52-year playing career Keating earned an induction into the Amateur Softball Association of Pennsylvania Hall of Fame in March. “It’s a great honor,” Keating said. “I played with a lot of good players over the years and they made the accomplish-

pitch with him,” Keating said. “I started playing catch with him and he asked if I wanted to try a couple.” That moment started a 52-year career in which he played about 2,800 games for many different teams. Keating tossed 50 no-hitters and 12 perfect games during his illustrious career. His teams won six state championships and two national championships. “It has allowed me to travel throughout the United States and Canada playing from California to Maine and in between,” Keating said. “It was great competition.” In 1964, Keating played for the Fort

ment possible by being able to win the championships and everything else that we won.” Keating, 69, lives with his wife Karen in Wilkes-Barre. He also has three sons, Frank, Jerry and Michael, and one daughter, Colleen. He started playing fast-pitch softball in 1959 with Blaines Café in Larksville. “A friend of mine was the pitcher for Blaines Café and they were playing the game one night and he asked me if I’d See KEATING, Page 4B

SOFTBALL

Center’s team keeps fast-pitch tradition alive By JOE BARESS For The Times Leader

When Amateur Softball Association of Pennsylvania Hall of Famer Frank Keating Sr. started playing fast-pitch softball in 1959, many softball teams existed throughout the nation. Despite the sport’s popularity during that time, men’s fast-pitch softball has dwindled, especially in recent years. Keating Sr. attributes the decline to the emergence of slowpitch softball. “The number of people that can play slow-pitch compared to the number of people that can play fast-pitch is not even close,” Keating Sr. said. “Therefore the decline started to come in a little in that area.” Keating Sr. also said the transformation from baseball to fastpitch softball is difficult because of the different dimensions of a softball field. “People who played Little League, Teener league and high school baseball might have been

good athletes -- especially hitting the ball -- but when it comes to fast-pitch softball and you go up against a good pitcher, it’s a little bit more difficult,” Keating Sr. said. “It takes time for that person to become a good hitter and sometimes they don’t want to put in the work in order to do it.” The Keating Fitness Center sponsors the only fast-pitch softball travel team in the WilkesBarre area and Keating Sr.’s son, Frank Keating Jr., is the general manager. “I recruit players and I do everything that a general manager would do in baseball, such as planning trips and booking hotel rooms for the team,” Keating Jr. said. Keating Jr. is also a banker who lives in Reading, which used to have a fantastic fastpitch softball team. “The Reading Sunners were one of the best in the nation during the 70s and 80s, and were one of the best in the world,”

Keating Jr. said. “Teams came from all over the world to play the Redding Sunners and it was a tremendous attraction.” Since the team’s inception, the Keating Fitness Center softball team has won four national titles. The team also had four national batting champions, an International Softball Congress world batting champion, 16 ASA All-Americans and six ISC allworld players. “Our team has produced allnational and all-world type players and that’s something that we’re very proud of,” Keating Jr. said. Keating Jr. enjoys the bonds players and teams form in fastpitch softball as well as the career opportunities created through the sport. “I love the competition, camaraderie and fraternity of players that play the game,” Keating Jr. said. “Many of the men’s fastpitch players that we play with and against are terrific college and high school softball coaches

that are teaching the girls and the women in this day in age.” Some coaches include Michael White (University of Oregon), Ehren Earleywine (University of Missouri), Scott Erickson (University of South Florida), Roy Kortmann (Long Island University) and Jay Nelson (Rutgers University). Keating Jr. coaches girls softball at Governor Mifflin High School in Reading. Last year, two players, Jess Epler and Samantha Denlinger, from Governor Mifflin earned scholarships to the University of Delaware and Coppin State University. “We’ve been able to meet great people, help coach young men and women and get them scholarship opportunities,” Keating Jr. said. “These are things that we have been able to create through the men’s fastpitch game. To me that’s so special and that’s why I keep plugging away at it.” Keating Sr. said if people would give the game a chance,

the leagues decreased from past years. “It has declined,” Kriner said. “I don’t think the younger generation is into it as much.” If people want to play in the Kingston Recreational League, Kriner said they can still join a team. “I always tell people if they’re looking to get on a team come over on a night,” Kriner said. “If they come over and sit here from 6-9 p.m. I’m sure they’re going to find a team that needs players.” Kriner said slow-pitch softball is much more run-driven than baseball and fast-pitch softball because the sport is based on hitting instead of pitching. “You’re not going to strike out in slow-pitch softball so you’re going to hit the ball,” Kriner said. “That’s going to make the game faster paced and more exciting.” The men’s league plays Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, while the co-ed league plays Sundays.

Hesjedal overtakes Rodriguez for win

Ashley Judd, in the backseat of the convertible — the same seat she had a year ago for Wheldon’s win — for the victory lap around the 2.5-mile oval. The entire day was a tribute to Wheldon, beginning with car owner Bryan Herta driving a single parade lap around Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the car Wheldon drove to victory last year. Fans were given white sunglasses to wear on laps 26 and 98, marking the car numbers Wheldon used in his two wins. It was Susie Wheldon’s first trip to any race track since her husband’s Oct. 16 death, and she watched from Dixon’s pit stand with his wife, Emma. It was the Dixons who relocated after the accident to St. Petersburg, Fla., to provide comfort and support for Susie and her two sons in the months after the accident. So it was fitting on this hot day — the temperature hit 91 degrees, just one shy of the Indy 500 record from 1937 — that one of the most competitive races in history ended with a frantic push from Wheldon’s friends. Ten drivers swapped the lead 35 times, shattering the record of 29 in the 1960 race won by Jim Rathmann. Until the last lap, when Sato made his move for the win, the race was close but uneventful. The only multi-car accident came when a spin by Mike Conway collected Will Power, who came into the race as the series points leader and winner of the last three races this season. It was a somewhat frightening accident as Conway, who broke his front wing when he hit one of his crew members on pit road, hit the outside wall and his car tilted on its side before coming to rest. And Helio Castroneves had to deftly maneuver past a bouncing tire that still grazed one of his own wheels. Besides that, though, the race was slowed by just eight cautions — including the one on the last lap — for 39 of the 200 laps. Marco Andretti, who went into Sunday believing the race “is mine to lose,” was strong at the start, but a series of adjustments were not to his liking and he unraveled on his team radio before spinning to bring out the final caution with 13 laps remaining. Franchitti and Dixon battled back and forth in the final third of the race, with Sato consistently in the mix. Then came Kanaan, from nowhere it seemed, but he was unable to hang on to the lead on the restart after Marco Andretti’s crash brought out the yellow with 13 laps to go. Andretti said the wreck “definitely rang my bell.” Everyone thought the race would go to a Chevrolet driver for either Andretti Autosport or Penske Racing, which won the first four races of the season and swept the front two rows in qualifying. But in the end, it was three Hondas fighting for their first win of the season.

they would enjoy it. “It’s a fantastic game,” Keating Sr. said. “I want people to know that fast-pitch softball is around and how competitive and enjoyable it can be.” Keating Jr. and his team will start competing in the 2012 fastpitch softball season when they travel to Lyons during the third week of June. All teams that participate in the tournament at Lyons are in the Eastern Seaboard League, which was formed in 2011. “We have designed it so we could try to get hard ball players and former high school and college players and try to generate some interest,” Keating Jr. said. “You can play very competitively, travel and possibly win yourself a state or national title.” At the local level, the Kingston Recreation Center has ASA affiliated men’s and co-ed slowpitch softball leagues that run from April to August under the direction of Greg Kriner.

New York Mets fans participate in Banner Day before a game against the San Diego Padres Sunday at Citi Field in New York. It is the first year the Mets held the day since 1996.

The New York Mets made the most of the holiday weekend, reviving one of their oldest traditions on Sunday. The club held a banner day, allowing fans to parade around Citi Field before the start of Sunday’s game against the Padres with home-made banners. From 1963 through 1996, the Mets would hold an annual banner day between games of a doubleheader. Typically the parade of fans with banners at Shea Stadium would take as long as one of the games.

MILAN — Ryder Hesjedal became the first Canadian to win one of cycling’s three major tour races, capturing the Giro d’Italia on Sunday by overtaking Spain’s Joaquin Rodriguez in the final stage. Hesjedal started the 21st stage 31 seconds behind the leader, but finished 16 seconds ahead of Rodriguez in the overall standings. He completed the 17.5-mile individual time trial in 34 minutes, 15 seconds. That was good for sixth place — 20 spots ahead of Rodriguez in the 95th edition of the race. “It’s just been an unreal experience from Day One, what the team was able to do. It’s unbelievable,” said Hesjedal, whose total race time was 91 hours, 39 minutes, 2 seconds. “This is incredible. It’s a dream come true.” He is only the third non-Italian to win the Giro in the past 15 years. “I couldn’t have done it without the team,” he said. “I knew I

tigue and joint pain. But the 31year-old Williams, a seven-time major champion, overcame a slow start Sunday to beat19-yearold Paula Ormaechea of Argentina 4-6, 6-1, 6-3. “A lot of it, I have to figure it out. It’s physical and emotional and all kinds of different things. Mental,” Williams said of her medical condition. “It’s a big accomplishment for me to be here right now.” She looked glum on court, not even smiling after most of her 41 winners (Ormaechea only had 15). But she laughed frequently during her news conference, such as when she talked about what she’s been going through as “definitely an adventure and journey; it’s life happening.” The other past major champions who won Sunday were Juan Martin del Potro, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Sam Stosur, Ana Ivanovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova. Monday’s schedule includes Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Victoria Azarenka and Li Na. Mahut hit more aces than Roddick, 13-8, and broke him seven times, including in the last game

on Court Suzanne Lenglen, an arena the American is not fond of. Roddick only once made it as far as the fourth round in 10 trips to Roland Garros, in 2009. He’s lost in the first round five times now. And there’s a reason the guy never saw success at the French Open the way he did at the U.S. Open (champion), Wimbledon (runner-up three times) or Australian Open (semifinalist four times). “I just feel like I get exposed too easily out here. I feel like I’m not set on most shots. If you’re not set, it’s tough to get much of a flow going. When you don’t have much of a flow going, it lends itself to sporadic play. It all adds up,” Roddick said. “You can’t fake it out here. ... It’s tough to lie out here.” Back on tour last week after two months away, Roddick was asked a handful of times about his physical state and recovery. “I’m going to not discuss it. I made a choice. I played. I’m fine. I lost,” he said, his expression downcast under a blue baseball hat bearing the logo of his French sponsor. “Not being confident on something isn’t the same as just not being bothered with it. You know, as athletes, we’re preconditioned

to hope sometimes. Coming into this, I didn’t have much to kind of prop myself up on,” Roddick said. “But, you know, I played a guy who it’s not his favorite surface either, so there was a chance. You just don’t know. If everyone pulled out of every tournament when they weren’t feeling great or confident, we wouldn’t have a lot of fields that were much to write home about. We’d have about four people in most draws.” Mahut lost in the first round eight times in nine previous appearances in Paris. He is best known for losing the longest match in tennis history to John Isner, 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon in the first round in 2010. Mahut acknowledged the 29year-old man he faced Sunday “was not the No. 1 Roddick, the No. 1 player in the world that we know.”

Gordon Military Police team and earned MVP. A year later, Keating played for the Fort Totten New York Military Police team that won the first army tournament. He also earned another MVP award. In 1968, Keating moved to Shamokin where he became a state police officer and played softball for about 17 years. “Jake Wojcik caught me for about 12 years,” Keating said. “He was fantastic. He made it all possible because we were very comfortable and always on the same page.” Keating played into the 2000s when he team won national championships in 2003 and 2009 and finished second in the nation in 2004. Despite all his success, Keating’s greatest thrill was playing alongside his sons. “My two oldest sons started

I’d like to thank everyone.” Like the rest of the riders, Hesjedal had been through a demanding mountain ride to the top of the Stelvio Pass in northern Italy on Saturday. “Yesterday was extremely hard,” he said. “I got through it and I knew as I was on the helicopter descending into Milan that I still had a shot. This morning I just felt incredible on my bike and I knew I could do it.” Though he hadn’t taken his victory chances seriously before the race, Hesjedal’s thinking started to change after he first wore the pink jersey on Stage 7, following a fifth-place finish. their careers when they were 12-, 13-years-old,” Keating said. “We used them as base runners because they were quick. We played together for all those years." Keating runs the Keating Fitness Center, which sponsors his son Frank’s team. Keating also gives pitching lessons, in which he stresses the importance of work ethic and muscle memory. “Once you build muscle memory in any sport you will become a good athlete,” Keating said. “The only way to do that is repetition. You’ve got to practice and get it down pat.” His coaching reflects back to when he threw a baseball through the center of a tire in his back yard. “When I pitched and put the ball in the center, the ball would come back to me,” Keating said. “If I hit either side of that tire, I would have to run after the ball and chase it. If you learn the control, you wouldn’t have to chase it.”

SENIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Roger Chapman won the Senior PGA Championship, holding on for a two-stroke victory after leading comfortably throughout the final round Sunday. Chapman led by five after 54 holes and was never really threatened Sunday. His closing 1-over 72 was his worst score of the tournament — but it was enough to give the Englishman a win at the major championship. Chapman, who had never won on the Champions Tour, finished at 13 under. He bogeyed three of the last five holes but had enough of a cushion that it didn’t matter. John Cook was at 11 under after a 69. Hale Irwin shot 68 to finish another stroke back.

Wade: Heat-Celtics matchup ‘inevitable’ Eastern Conference finals are a rematch of last season’s semifinals. By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — In 2010, Boston ousted Dwyane Wade in the first round and LeBron James in the second round. A year later, Wade and James were teammates and turned the tables, sending the Celtics into the offseason. Here comes the tiebreaker. Celtics-Heat, one more time — with a berth in the NBA finals as the reward. For the fifth time in seven years, it’ll be Boston or Miami winning the Eastern Conference championship. Game 1 of that title series is tonight in Miami, with the Heat saying it almost seemed predestined that they would be seeing the Celtics again, and Boston’s perspective being that the team in green is exactly where it expected to be as well. “Inevitable. It’s the matchup the game of basketball wants,” Wade said Sunday afternoon. “Obviously, with the Chicago Bulls being out, this is the biggest matchup the Eastern Conference can have. So we accept the challenge and we look forward to the series.” Added Heat coach Erik Spoelstra: “Was there any doubt that it’d be us and Boston?” Well, maybe a little. Spoelstra watched Boston’s Game 7 East semifinal matchup against Philadelphia without a notepad, not wanting to start game planning until the winner was decided. And that didn’t come until late in the night, when Rajon Rondo — forced into the closer’s role after Paul Pierce

fouled out with 4:16 left — delivered time and again down the stretch, carrying the Celtics to an 85-75 closeout victory. “This is a good time right now,” Celtics forward Kevin Garnett said. “This is the cream of the cream. This is what it’s all about, you know, conference finals. We definitely didn’t like the way we left last year. So we’ll see what happens, man. We’ll see what happens. Let’s get it on.” Miami beat Boston in five games in last year’s East semifinals, and the Celtics took three of four games from Miami this season. Both sides cautioned against reading too much into any of those results. James said the game changes in the playoffs, even more so as teams get deeper into it. The Celtics know what he wants to do, he knows what the Celtics will try, familiarity born from James having already faced Boston in 18 playoff games — more than any other active player, and more than any club the reigning MVP has squared off with in the postseason. “I wouldn’t have it no other way, personally,” James said. “It’s really the only team I’m accustomed to playing in the playoffs. No matter where I go, I find a way to play Boston. ... We’ve got a lot of history.” James and the Cleveland Cavaliers lost in seven games to Boston in 2008. In 2010, the Celtics topped the Cavs in six games, one round after easily beating the Heat in a series punctuated by Wade vowing that he wouldn’t lose another first-round series for

FORT WORTH, Texas — Zach Johnson won the Colonial for his first victory since also winning at Hogan’s Alley two years ago, pulling ahead Sunday when Jason Dufner finally faltered. Johnson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for failing to replace his ball to its original position after marking it on the 18th hole. That left him with a 2-over 72 and a one-stroke victory. “I’m going to focus on the positives, because I hit a really solid putt and it’s a good thing I made it,” Johnson said. “No harm, no foul. It was my fault.” Johnson moved his original ball mark out of the line of Dufner’s putt on the 18th green. But he forgot to move it back before his final 5-foot putt. Johnson finished at 12under 268 for his eighth PGA Tour title. Dufner closed with a 74. Tommy Gainey was a distant third at 7 under after a 67. Dufner’s only two PGA Tour victories came in the last four weeks, a stretch when he also got married.

outpitch the Phillies’ anemic offense, so it’s not all his fault. Like Halladay, expect him to start getting wins and pitching like he’s used to. As for Lincecum. Well, let’s just say Facebook isn’t the only Bay Area stock that’s fallen flat on its face. Lincecum’s been so bad, he could pitch a complete game shutout and his ERA would DROP to 5.49. It just seems like there’s something wrong here. He says he’s fine, his coach says he’s fine, his GM says he’s fine. His numbers say he’s NOT fine. Either he turns it around, or he ends up on the DL sometime over the summer. I hope he turns it around. I suspect he won’t.

a long time to come. Last season, Miami’s five-game win was far from easy. And this time, the perception of the Celtics is that they’re old, tired and weary. The Heat dismiss those notions as “ridiculous,” Spoelstra said. “No. Get out of here with that,” Wade said. “I don’t believe none of that. No feet hurtin’, no tired, no nothing. This is the Boston Celtics. They’re all 100 percent to me because when they play the Miami Heat, different ballgame and vice versa. Ain’t no story lines, no excuses. ... Last year, yeah, we beat them in five, but man, it was like a nine-game series, it felt like.” Boston did not hold practice Sunday, instead handing out scouting reports and flying to Miami. Celtics coach Doc Rivers was packed with the hopes of making a Miami trip even before Game 7 of the Philly series, just so he could take every possible moment after the game Saturday night to watch film of the Heat, and he planned more of the same on the three-hour flight from Boston. “We’ll be ready,” Rivers said. “It’s going to be a tough turnaround, but listen, we’re not an excuse team. We’ll be ready on Monday.” His players said they welcomed the short turnaround. Ray Allen is hurting and Boston will be without Avery Bradley for the remainder of the season, but the Celtics indicated they would rather just jump into a Miami series and not wait around. “I kind of like it for us,” Pierce said. “It keeps us in rhythm. It keeps us playing. We’re an older team so we get kind of stiff when we sit around for too long. We like the fact that we’re going to go right into it.”

CONCORD, N.C. — Kasey Kahne powered to victory in the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night, taking NASCAR’s longest race for the third time for his first win with Hendrick Motorsports. Kahne also gave car owner Rick Hendrick his 201st Sprint Cup series victory. Kahne crossed the finish line nearly 5 seconds ahead of Denny Hamlin. Kyle Busch was third and series points leader Greg Biffle fourth. “It’s just so great to win for Mr. Hendrick,” Kahne said. As Kahne celebrated, teammate Jeff Gordon gave him a bear hug and told him, “Proud of you.” Kahne became the 16th Hendrick driver for to take the checkered flag. It was Kahne’s 13th career win and first since last November in Phoenix. Hendrick drivers were all near the top. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sixth, and Gordon seventh — just his third top 10 finish of the season. Five-time series champion Jimmie Johnson was 11th. He was in contention until the final pit stop when he left with his gas can still engaged, dragging his crew member along. NASCAR docked him with a stop-and-go penalty to end his chances. Danica Patrick, the first woman to drive in the race since Janet Guthrie in 1976, was five laps down in 30th. Still, it was her best finish in three career Sprint Cup races. Car owner Chip Ganassi flew to Charlotte after celebrating Dario Franchitti’s win at the Indianapolis 500 earlier Sunday. Ganassi, part of Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, had hoped to double up with drivers Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya. But 250 laps in, McMurray was a lap down and Montoya two behind after needing an extra pit stop to tighten a loose wheel. “The minute I walked into the garage, people were high-fiving

me,” Ganassi said. “Right now, we’ve got to get our cars up the grid.” It didn’t happen as Montoya finished Kahne two laps down in 20th and McMurray right behind in 21st. For much of this race, it looked as if Biffle wouldn’t be caught. He led 204 laps to dominate early and was clearly best as the race began in the hot, bright sunshine. Once the night cooled off the track, Biffle was no match for Kahne. “Kasey’s car was just better at night,” Biffle said. An early crash took Patrick out of contention in the season-opening Daytona 500 and she finished 38th. Patrick returned to Sprint Cup two weeks ago at treacherous Darlington Raceway and lasted throughout at the track considered “Too Tough to Tame” and crossed the line in 31st. Patrick’s goals this week were simply to be running at the end — and that she was. Starting 40th after a poor qualifying effort, Patrick quickly fell top laps down. But she held on throughout the long, long night. Patrick also kept her humor. When she was cautioned by her team to keep hydrating, Patrick cracked, “Copy that. Every time you don’t get an answer to a question, that’s what I’m doing.” Patrick’s next Sprint Cup race will be at Bristol Motor Speedway on Aug. 25. Earnhardt had hoped to avenge last year’s heartbreaking loss when he ran out of fuel 700 feet from the finish line while leading. Earnhardt came as close to second and was drag-racing Hamlin for the lead on the final restart before as the large crowd at Charlotte Motor Speedway howled.

Father’s dying wish for burial becomes a financial burden on family Dear Abby: How important are a dying person’s last wishes? My dad died recently and said that he wanted to be buried with his first wife in a state far from where we live. If his estate — or his current wife — can’t afford to comply with his request, would it be horrible to do something else? In today’s economy most seniors don’t have any extra income. To follow Dad’s final wishes would take a sizable chunk of his estate. His wife feels it’s not important to follow his last wishes because of the cost, but it really bothers me. Dad was in the Navy during WWII. If his wife isn’t willing to spend the

DEAR ABBY ADVICE money, would I still be a good guy by scattering his ashes in the ocean? I know he’d rather be in the deep than sitting on a shelf in the work shed. Please help. — Disturbed Son in Nevada Dear Disturbed Son: Your letter illustrates why it is important for people to have their wishes in writing. In this case, your father’s wife would have the right to his ashes, unless it was stated otherwise in black and white. As far as granting a personal last wish, you need to use your best judg-

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

ment, particularly if doing so would cause financial hardship. In this case, cremation would be a creative way to make everyone happy. Your father’s ashes could be divided into thirds, with one portion placed with his first wife, another with his second wife, and the rest scattered at sea. Dear Abby: My spouse, “Jack,” and I were married four years ago. Three years ago he made me choose between him and my then 7-year-old son. I haven’t spoken to or seen my son for three years. Not having my child in my life has made me become depressed, but I keep it bottled up inside. Jack has three children — all adults. We rarely see them. I brought two children into our marriage, ages

CRYPTOQUOTE

7 and 14. Jack says he doesn’t want to be a father or grandfather. (We have three grandchildren.) Am I a terrible mother/grandmother? Does this mean he doesn’t really love me since my children are a part of me? I want to be a grandmother and enjoy my grandchildren. He knew I had kids when we were dating, but both of them lived with relatives at the time because of custody issues. — Sad Grandma in Arizona Dear Sad Grandma: It isn’t that Jack doesn’t love you. He appears to be so preoccupied with his own needs, desires and controlling you that he probably doesn’t think about much else. That you are “scared” to question him speaks volumes about your relationship.

If you want to be a part of your children’s and grandchildren’s lives, you will have to do so without his blessing or participation. Good advice for everyone — teens to seniors — is in “The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It.” To order, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Shipping and handling are included in the price.) To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t take back what you say once it slips through your lips, but it has a chance of being soon forgotten. On the other hand, the written word can be forever saved, so show restraint before pushing “send.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A small act of courage is all that’s necessary today, but it really does mean something. When you deliver on a minor level, it proves to all and especially yourself that you are indeed courageous. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are not in a make-or-break situation, so you can relax. It may feel as though this is your big chance, but this is just one of many. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Emotions can be the banana peel on the sidewalk that sends you toppling or a jetpack strapped to your back that sends you to the stars. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Others may encourage you, but if they are not authorities on the matter, you aren’t likely to listen. You want to learn from only the most qualified and will start to attract such individuals. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll balance more than you think you can manage. What seems uncontrollable is actually well within your influence. Get working, and your doubts will melt away. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is some good, and also a lot of unnecessary pain, that can happen in the name of “keeping it real.” So before you decide to speak up, consider whether it’s really in everyone’s best interest

to do so. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your imagination is ablaze now, so put it to good use. Imagine yourself in a beautiful future, and keep fleshing out the vision with sparkling details. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s a treat coming your way, and it may surprise you despite the fact that you set it up long ago. It seems like a lifetime ago now, doesn’t it? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be like an excellent chess player, able to see six moves ahead. You’ll consider the consequences of your potential actions and adjust accordingly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re empathic and helpful, but you’re no pushover. Some people seem only to be able to understand this by pushing you beyond your limits and triggering your firm response. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve made a point, and it’s taken a while for another person to form and deliver a response. Go about your business. Don’t continue to wait for others. They’ll catch up to you at the perfect time. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 28). Your adventurous mindset prevents you from becoming preoccupied with the mundane this year. You’ll cash in your ticket and take a wild ride in June. July brings friends, laughter and the advancement of one particularly meaningful relationship. September is your chance to make a sale. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 44, 11 and 18.
