Tornado victims in shelter dilemma

First option for thousands in Joplin, Mo., is existing rental units but availability an issue. By JIM SALTER Associated Press

JOPLIN, Mo. — Some of the people left homeless by the Joplin tornado could be placed in rental homes nearly an hour’s drive away, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Monday it will consider bringing in trailers, as it did for New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, if enough homes are not available. FEMA’s first option for housing the thousands of displaced is to find them ex“How does isting rental housing within it feel be- a 55-mile radius ing home- of Joplin, bethere less? Hon- cause isn’t much estly, hor- housing left in the city of nearrible. It’s ly 50,000 resijust so dents that was left badly dambad.” aged by the Gerry May 22 tornaGuitierrez do, spokeswotornado victim man Susie Stonner told The Associated Press. Nearly a third of the city was damaged by the violent storm that left killed more than 130 people. Twenty-nine people remained unaccounted for Monday, a major decline from earlier figures. Stonner said that despite the distance, putting people in permanent housing is preferable to trailers — especially in an area prone to tornadoes and severe weather. “Wouldn’t you prefer to be in a stable building over a mobile home?” she asked. Stonner also noted that getting things such as water, sewer lines and developing pads for trailers would take substantial time. City Administrator Mark Rohr said the goal is to keep people as close to home as possible but that “based on the circumstances we’ll have to respond accordingly.” The city has not said how many people were left homeless by the twister, but Rohr said 4,500 to 5,000 residents have registered with FEMA. Temporary housing will be made available for up to 18 months. Some people along the Gulf Coast still live in FEMA trailers nearly six years after Hurricane Katrina. Another FEMA spokesman, Bob Josephson, said the agency will consider bringing trailers to Joplin if enough existing housing isn’t available. He said every effort will be made to find existing rental units closest to Joplin and that many residents may simply choose to find their own housing options.

FORTY FORT – The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Color Guard received a standing ovation Monday as it marched along in the three-mile long West Side Memorial Day parade on Wyoming Avenue. One woman screamed out, “thank you,” as the color guard passed Bennett Street.

Sides take positions on whether Feds should regulate drilling process or let states handle it. By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Correspondent

WASHINGTON – When federal Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson touched on “fracking” during a House hearing last week on Capitol Hill, proponents and detractors of the natural gas drilling method took immediate notice. And, naturally, both sides in the debate over hydraulic fracturing – the process for extracting natural gas from rock formations deep underground by injecting water, sand and chemicals – came away with very different takes on Jackson’s comments. And, naturally, both sides in the increasingly contentious argument over whether the federal government should regulate the hydraulic fracturing industry rather than leaving state agencies in charge took pains to spin the comments as showing that the EPA head did or did not favor new federal authority. As fracking wells proliferate in Northeast Pennsylvania – and elsewhere around the country – proponents say it’s a boom that will help fuel a clean energy supply of natural gas and create a slew of good-paying jobs for years to come. But opponents charge that fracking carries the risk of contaminating See DEBATE, Page 10A

Community pools going down drain

From NYC to Sacramento, pools are considered too costly to maintain. By JEFFREY COLLINS Associated Press

ANDERSON, S.C. — On those summer days when the temperature soars into the 90s and the haze blurs the horizon, city pools across the U.S. have beckoned people from all over to take a cool dip. But as the Great Recession has drained city budgets across the country, it also has drained public pools for good. From New York City to Sacramento, Calif., pools now considered costly extravagances are being shuttered, taking away a rite of summer for millions. It’s especially hard for families that can’t afford a membership to private pool or fitness club and don’t live in a neighborhood where they can befriend someone with a backyard pool. Hard times haven’t always meant cutbacks. An author who studied the role swimming pools played in 20th century America found more than 1,000 municipal pools were built as public works proSee POOLS, Page 10A

LOCAL Tasks challenge transition group Home rule panel has much to do before county council takes over. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County home rule transition committee members say they’re trying to stay focused because they only have about five months to complete their recommendations to the 11 county council members who will be elected in November. “Committee members are diligently working day and night to ensure that the new government is ready as best possible to function on Jan. 2,” said committee Chairman Jim Bobeck. “This is a painstakingly time-consuming affair.”

The committee convened in December to start drafting proposed codes and policies and discuss plans to search for a new county manager, division heads and citizen members of boards and authorities. The new council may accept or reject any recommendations from the transition committee, which is composed of the three county commissioners, five home rule charter drafters and three citizens. Drafts of the ethics and personnel codes will be presented to the committee for its review in June, Bobeck said. Committee members will have about two weeks to review the drafts before

they vote whether to adopt them as official recommendations to council, Bobeck said. A draft of the administrative code probably won’t be completed until late July or early August because it is the “most involved,” Bobeck said. This code must outline the county’s administrative structure, procedures and operations, including policies for purchasing and budgeting. The committee’s personnel and recruitment subcommittee has completed a draft county manager job description and is working on a proposed job advertisement for that position, said the subcommittee chairman, Rick Morelli. Job descriptions and advertisements must also be drafted for other key posts,

he said. An advertisement seeking a manager likely will be printed in newspapers and trade publications and on Internet job sites around the end of July, Morelli said. The committee has agreed to conduct a nationwide search but won’t be hiring a professional recruitment firm because of the cost, he said. The transition committee has not discussed specifics on how the applications will be screened, though members have stressed that all applications and other information received through the job advertisement will be turned over to the new council. Morelli’s subcommittee is also workSee HOME RULE, Page 10A

Exeter eyes request for zoning shift A plan for new housing raises concerns about runoff, flooding. By WILLIAM BELL Times Leader Correspondent

EXETER – When Borough Council was presented with a resolution May 3 that would have changed the zoning of one area of the borough as a means to stop a potential 186-unit development, the measure failed to pass. Council President Richard Murawski made the motion to change the zoning from R3 (high density) to R1 (for single homes), based on a recommendation from the borough Planning Commission. But the motion died for a lack of a second without a formal vote. The land is located on Packer Avenue, which borders the Fox Hill Country Club and connects Tunkhannock Avenue and Slocum Avenue. Council was unresponsive when Planning Commission member Larry Dellegrotto asked for an explanation. Dellegrotto said the rezoning addressed the exact type of development that had caused water runoff problems in the past in the borough. He said the recommendation was based on the advice of the commission’s planning consultant. Eventually, Councilman Joseph Pizano said he did not second the motion because of a lack of an explanation of the issue from the Planning Commission or its solicitor in his agenda packet. When Dellegrotto asked, since he had attended the council work session, why had no one asked any questions at the work session, the council moved on to other issues. Contacted later, he said the proposed rezoning was based on a recommendation by Jack Varaly of Michael J. Pasonick and Associates, the commission’s planning consultant. The intent was to ensure that the land, which could be developed into more than 180 multiplefamily units, would be restricted to a much smaller number of single-family units if developed in the future. The intent would be to help control water runoff and the flooding problems large developments create. When contacted, Thomas Barnard of the Hicks Creek Watershed Association, said U.S. Army Corps of Engineers agreements made in 1953 and 1973 required the county to prohibit development and/or encroachment in Exeter that impacts the flood protection project’s designated temporary flood storage areas, such as wetlands and ponding areas. Barnard said these agreements were not enforced and development occurred in the areas. He said these developments had caused the flood storage capacity to be lost. He also said the Corps has argued that flooding in the Hicks Creek basin is not the Corps’ responsibility. However, Barnard said, when the Corps designed and constructed the 2000 levee-raising project, the flood storage area did not exist and there was no reason to believe that it would ever be restored. Borough Secretary Debra Serbin said the motion will be on the agenda for the June 6 council meeting.






Arson sentence upheld

he state Superior Court has upT held the eight-to-16-year prison sentence imposed upon an Exeter

man who caused a massive explosion after he set fire to his home in a failed suicide attempt. David Lamoreaux, 46, had asked the court to overturn the sentence imposed by Luzerne County Judge Tina PoLamoreaux lachek Gartley, arguing it was too severe. Lamoreaux pleaded guilty in May to numerous charges, including arson and risking or causing a catastrophe in connection with a fire he set in August 2009. The blaze caused the home to explode, injuring two girls who were walking by seriously damaging dozens of nearby structures. Lamoreaux stated the judge failed to adequately consider all mitigating factors, including his remorse and the fact that he suffered severe burns that have left him disabled for life. In a response to his appeal, Gartley said the sentence was warranted because of the severity of Lamoreaux’s actions and the impact it had on the community. “The defendant’s self-imposed sentence of a lifetime of disability does not mitigate the defendant’s sentence,” Gartley wrote. The Superior Court upheld the sentence in a ruling issued last week.

WILKES-BARRE – A vacant house on Sullivan Street was destroyed in a fire that forced an evacuation of15 tenants from an adjacent apartment building early Monday morning. Acting Assistant Fire Chief Frank McHenry said firefighters responded to 73 Sullivan St. at about 1 a.m. “It was fully involved when they arrived; completely consumed by flames,” McHenry said. Flamesquicklyrippedthroughthetwostory wood house that was less than 15 feet from a triple-block apartment building at 63-67 Sullivan St. Phillip Daniels, owner of the apartment

building, was too upset to be interviewed. He lived in the building and was salvaging items from his residence Monday afternoon. McHenry said the American Red Cross is assisting15 tenants from the apartment building with housing in local hotels. At least three tenants are young children. No injuries were reported, McHenry said. He said the cause of the fire is under investigation by city Fire Inspector Alan Klapat. Flames spread to the apartment building, damaging the second floor. “That building had fire damage on the left side (67 Sullivan St.),” McHenry said. “Flames got in the walls and the ceiling on the second floor.” Firefighters battled the blaze from all sides, including a firefighter with a hose kneeling on the porch roof of the apartment building. McHenry did not immediately know

how long 73 Sullivan St. was vacant or if the house had utility service. A sign by the city Code Enforcement Office condemning the house was posted on the front door window. Two pickup trucks and a vehicle parked between the apartment building and the vacant house were severely damaged. Three large trees surrounding the house were scorched. McHenry said a back-hoe was brought late Monday morning to knock down the chimneyandfiredamagedwallsthatwere in danger of collapsing. “We had the chimney and walls knockeddowntomakeitsafer,”McHenry said. Plywood was fastened to the front door and smashed windows at 67 Sullivan St. It is the second fire at a vacant building on Sullivan Street since 2007.

Local man wins honor

Barry Trievel of Wilkes-Barre was presented with the National Kidney Registry’s most prestigious award, The American Hero’s Award, earlier this month at the organization’s annual awards event. Trievel was among 11 people who selflessly donated a kidney to a Trievel stranger who were also honored and recognized at the event, according to a release from the registry. The 11 “Good Samaritan” donors being recognized started 11 chains that facilitated 62 life-saving transplants, according to a press release from the registry. In accepting the award, Trievel said, “I have had friends who died from kidney disease. Life has been good to me in many ways. There was never the question: Should I do it or not? The issue was: Why shouldn’t I? I could not come up with a good answer to that question. I have not regretted my decision.” The mission of the National Kidney Registry is to save and improve the lives of people facing kidney failure.

Looking the part as a member of the 24th Connecticut Militia Regiment during the Revolutionary War, Homer Butler of Mount Cobb sat outside the historic Forty Fort Municipal Building holding a 1777 Charlieville musket. With a raccoon tail hat and a full beard, Butler described his family history, saying eight ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War. “The 24th Militia was created in the Wyoming Valley by the Connecticut Legislature in 1775 when this area was under Connecticut control,” he said. Six militia re-enactors from the 24th Connecticut regiment marched in the parade. Grand marshals for the parade were Bernard S. Shinko and George Russett. Shinko, of Kingston, served with the U.S. Army in Germany and in Okinawa during the Korean War era. He has been involved in the West Side Memorial Day parade for 45 years. Russett, of Larksville, served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, and served 20 years with the Pennsylvania National Guard. Other parades were held Monday in Ashley, Dallas, Exeter/ West Pittston, Hanover Township, the Parsons section of WilkesBarre, and Wilkes-Barre Township. Services were also held in many cemeteries and churches across the area. “With a long winter and a rainy spring that hopefully ended, it’s a great way to start the summer by remembering those who died while protecting our country,” Denise Shovlin said. Shovlin, of Pittston, brought her daughter, Christina, 4, to the parade in West Pittston/Exeter.

then. Water got to a fire either in buckets or by hand pumping it from a portable water supply. On Monday, Bulman and several firefighters from his company got a first-hand taste of the old style of firefighting as they took part in the “Fireman’s Olympics” competition at the Sweet Valley Volunteer Fire Company’s annual carnival, which concluded Monday. The competition pits teams from neighboring fire companies against each other to see who can hoist buckets of water up a ladder to atop a 10-foothigh scaffolding. The goal: Fill a 55-gallon barrel in the least amount of time. Once that’s done, they test their arm strength and endurance as they take on an old hand pumper – a red wagon with two oversize silver handles fashioned like a see-saw – to pump water through a hose

It’s intense.” At the sound of a whistle, the men were off, hurriedly filling buckets from a porta-tank. Water splashed to the ground as they hustled to hand the buckets upward. “Come on, guys! Let’s go!” Harvey’s Lake Fire Chief David Davis shouted, egging on his team. “Let’s go! Don’t be slowing up!”

Davis, 41, had competed in the competition years ago, but was more than happy to be relegated to the role of cheerleader this year, he said. “I did it a long time ago, but now I’m the chief. I get to hold the radio,” he said with a laugh. The Harveys Lake team finished the task in one minute, 36 seconds, beating out Back Mountain Regional, which posted a time of two minutes, 10 seconds. Dan Kaskus of Back Mountain Regional and his fellow teammates were determined to redeem themselves in the tanker pump competition. A team of six firefighters, three on each side, worked in unison, furiously pumping the tanker’s handle. At first it wasn’t that hard, Kaskus said. “You have to get the water moving. Once you get the pressure, it gets going,” he said. It was another story once the water got to the 90-degree angle in the hose and the firefighters had to push it straight

It’s not easy to defeat that,” he said. “It’s all about strength and endurance” Kaskus’ team gave it its best shot, but again fell short with a time of two minutes, 11 seconds. Harveys Lake posted a time of one minute 51 seconds. The competition has been an annual event at the carnival, which is the main fundraiser for the Sweet Valley fire department.

BERLIN — Europe’s economic powerhouse, Germany, announced plans Monday to abandon nuclear energy over the next 11 years, outlining an ambitious strategy in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima disaster to replace atomic power with renewable energy sources. Chancellor Angela Mer- Germany’s kel said she hopes the initiative transformareceived a tion to more solar, wind skeptical and hydro- reception electric powabroad. er serves as a roadmap for other countries. “We believe that we can show those countries who decide to abandon nuclear power — or not to start using it — how it is possible to achieve growth, creating jobs and economic prosperity while shifting the energy supply toward renewable energies,” Merkel said. Merkel’s government said it will shut down all 17 nuclear power plants in Germany — the world’s fourth-largest economy and Europe’s biggest — by 2022. The government had no immediate estimate of the transition’s overall cost. The plan sets Germany apart from most of the other major industrialized nations. Among the other Group of Eight countries, only Italy has abandoned nuclear power, which was voted down in a referendum after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. The decision represents a remarkable about-face for Merkel’s center-right government, which only late last year pushed through a plan to extend the life span of the country’s reactors, with the last scheduled to go offline around 2036. But Merkel, who holds a Ph.D. in physics, said industrialized, technologically advanced Japan’s “helplessness” in the face of the Fukushima disaster made her rethink the technology’s risks. Germany’s initiative received a skeptical reception abroad. “We respect this decision, but it doesn’t cause us to change our policy,” French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said. France operates more than one-third of the nuclear reactors in the EU.

Armed citizens fight Syrian army Hospitals are struggling

with medication shortages

By ZEINA KARAM and BASSEM MROUE Associated Press

BEIRUT — Residents used automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades to repel advancing government troops in central Syria on Monday, putting up a fierce fight for the first time in their two-month-old revolt against President Bashar Assad’s autocratic regime. The escalation raised fears the popular uprising may be moving toward a Libya-style armed conflict. Until now, the opposition against Assad has taken the form of peaceful protests by unarmed demonstrators, though authorities have claimed, without offering solid proof, that it was being led by armed gangs and propelled by foreign conspiracies. Activists said residents of

the towns of Talbiseh and Rastan, which have been under attack since Sunday in central Homs province, decided to fight back with automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, and at least four civilians were killed. “They felt that they cannot

sit back any more and pray for God to help them,” said one Homs resident who has wide connections in the province. He, like all residents contacted by The Associated Press, spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

WASHINGTON — A growing shortage of medications for a host of illnesses — from cancer to cystic fibrosis to cardiac arrest — has hospitals scrambling for substitutes to avoid patient harm, and sometimes even delaying treatment. “It’s just a matter of time now before we call for a drug that we need to save a patient’s life and we find out there isn’t any,” said Dr. Eric Lavonas of the American College of Emergency Physicians. The number of drugs listed in short supply has tripled over the past five years, to a record 211medications last year. While some of those have been resolved, another 89 drug shortages have occurred in the first three months of this year, according to the University of Utah’s Drug

Information Service. It tracks shortages for the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The vast majority involve injectable medications used mostly by medical centers. Other countries report some of the same supply disruptions. Some experts pointedly note that pricier brand-name drugs seldom are in short supply. The Food and Drug Administration agrees that the overarching problem is that fewer and fewer manufacturers produce these older, cheaper generic drugs. Affected companies say they’re working hard to eliminate backlogs. But the Generic Pharmaceutical Association says some shortages are beyond industry control, such as FDA inspections or stockpiling that can exacerbate a shortage.

Ed and Jennifer started their family in Warrenton, Va., where their son, Jacob, was born. They soon settled in Manassas, Va., in1979, where their three daughters, Rebekah, Elisa, and Kathryn, would be welcomed into the growing family. Ed began his career in carpentry, branched out into cabinet making, commercial contracting and home building. He was a business owner, Realtor, and ended his career on a high note working for a company he loved as a construction project manager. He took tremendous joy in gardening, cooking, telling stories, writing, genealogy, trips with his wife to Gettysburg, and “spanning time” with his loving family. He was also a fan of the hockey team the Buffalo Sabres. But more than anything, he loved beginning a new project. Whatever he did, he did with passion and abandon. Knowing that his time on Earth was drawing to a close, Ed spent his final month in thankfulness to God, relaying family history and stories, and preparing his loved ones for the future.

Pawlenty offers welcome frankness to U.S. politics


N ENTERTAINMENT value alone, the Republican race for the U.S. presidential nomination in 2012 may be weaker with the absence of Donald Trump or a discussion of birth certificates. But those Republicans who are serious about finding a credible alternative to Barack Obama can look with increasing confidence at Tim Pawlenty. Pawlenty is, in many ways, the anti-Trump. His hair is full, but natural; he is the son of a milk truck driver, not the scion of a real estate tycoon. And he actually governed, for eight years, with success as the governor of a left-leaning state, Minnesota. What’s more important about Pawlenty is what he said in announcing his candidacy. Much of his announcement repeated Republican orthodoxies: Bashing “ObamaCare”; appealing to Reaganites by saying “if we want to grow our economy, we need to shrink our government.” But elsewhere, Pawlenty rejected the rules said to govern American politics. He called

for meanstesting of Social Security benefits. He promised a phase-out of ethanol subsidies, somePawlenty thing typically seen as the path to political suicide in Iowa, a key early state in the nomination calendar. He angered many potential donors by promising to end industrial subsidies generally. On each of these, Pawlenty is pursuing sound policy ideas for the greater long-term benefit of the United States. More such frankness would be welcome, especially from the likes of Mitt Romney, an otherwise credible candidate who is contorting himself to oppose Obama’s health-care reform — even though it resembles the reform he had earlier implemented as governor of Massachusetts. And no contender is yet willing to touch the third rail of their party — Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy that the country cannot afford. The Globe and Mail, Toronto

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Any sentence for Mark would only serve to extend an unnecessary situation that already seems as if it has been never-ending.” Nancy Kerrigan The former Olympic figure skater’s brother was sentenced to jail last week despite tearful pleas from the family to spare Mark Kerrigan after he was convicted of assault and battery, but acquitted of involuntary manslaughter, in the 2010 death of their 70-year-old father.

Japan faces long recovery


T HAS BEEN more than a month since Tokyo Electric Power Co. announced its action plan for bringing the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant under control. But we now fear the utility may not be able to keep to its schedule. TEPCO on May 12 disclosed selective reactor data that was gathered immediately after the accident. The data suggests that every one of the three reactors in operation probably had a meltdown. But why did it take TEPCO as long as two months to put this together? Surely, this was the sort of information it

should have used immediately to assess the general state of the reactors and figure out the best and fastest response. Many outside experts were of the opinion that a meltdown must have occurred not long after the plant was incapacitated. Yet, both TEPCO and the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency kept using the expression “reactor core damage,” perhaps to lead the public into underestimating what was really happening. TEPCO must now brace itself for much more formidable challenges in the days ahead. The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo

Obama’s views of Israel


N SHARP CONTRAST to his 2009 Cairo speech, President Barack Obama made it abundantly clear during his speech in Washington on May 19 precisely who the good guys are and who the bad guys are in the Muslim world. However, while there were no signs that he was threatening or pressuring Israel, Obama did say that a two-state solution should be based on the

1967 lines, a clear endorsement of Palestinian demands. Obama also dissented outright with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s reading of the geopolitical map, claiming that the Arab Spring offered a unique opportunity to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In contrast, Netanyahu has presented what is in our opinion a more sober, realistic assessment. The Jerusalem Post

Church report lends perspective to priest abuse cases THE PHILADELPHIA Inquirer took a swift swipe at the recent report on priest abuse that determined much of the problem had risen from the turbulent social upheaval of the 1960s and ’70s. Two days after the report was made public, the Inky ran an editorial cartoon depicting a zonked out bishop slouched on the floor, the report in one hand and a hookah pipe in the other. “It was the sixties, man …” the bishop says, stars and swirls around his head. The hookah bowl sports the word “rationalization” in the wavy, swooping print of the psychedelic days. Pundits understandably jumped on this as well, writing columns that chastised the Church for trying to mask its sins with the incense of the free-love era. I had the same visceral reaction when I first read news stories of the report, commissioned and largely paid for by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Blame abuse of minors by priests on the hippy-dippy days of flower power and the sexual revolution? You’ve got to be kidding! Then I read the full report, and then I talked to Diocese of Scranton Bishop Joseph Bambera, who graciously agreed to a oneon-one interview about a topic that under-


MARK GUYDISH COMMENTARY standably inflames his flock. Bambera did not eagerly embrace the report’s logic. He made it clear he doesn’t want people to take it as an excuse for past failures in the Church. But he noted that if you look at all the data in the report and sift through the factors it mentions in presenting its case the argument starts to look pretty strong. The John Jay report looked at abuse cases from 1950 to 2010 and found a sharp increase during the 1960s and ’70s followed by a steady decline from around 1985. They noted that the decline occurred after the Church started emphasizing “human formation” in seminaries, meaning priests-to-be took courses in and had discussions about their own lives, their own concerns, their own sexuality and their future life as celibates. I think this is the part critics of the report gloss over or miss completely. The John Jay report does not excuse the sins of those priests as a product of that era, as though the rise in abuses were a natural, even inevitable result of the rise of the sex-

ual revolution. What the report attempts to do, as Bambera put it, is “provide historical context.” Bambera and I are one year apart in age. We watched the late 1960s as tweens and attended high school in the early ’70s. Teen clothes went from button shirts and narrow ties to bellbottoms and tie-dyes. TV news showed grainy pictures of half-a-million people, many shirtless, at Woodstock., adulsts swooning as the Beatles played Yankee stadium, and the gore of Vietnam. Old social structures and old values were crumbling rapidly, and there was nothing substantive replacing them. Is it really so hard to believe the crop of men entering the seminaries back then could become more problematic than there predecessors? The Church, frankly, reacted in its usual stodgy and glacial pace, too slow to change priest training, too reluctant to implement rigorous psychological screening of seminary candidates. But it has changed. To dismiss the John Jay report as little more than another excuse for priest abuse is, frankly, unfair. The reasoning in the report may of necessity be unsatisfying, but it is not unsound. Mark Guydish can be reached at 829-7161 or via e-mail at

t looks like the Obama administration has finally admitted the failure of “ObamaCare”. It admitted millions of senior citizens will be financially hurt by one of the most controversial cuts in Obama’s health care law. Medicare Advantage enrollees will be gouged by higher medical costs. So what to do? Obama decided to prop it up with billions of taxpayer dollars, at least until election day! This administration feels it can fool the elderly into thinking it cares for them. Does he really think the elderly are stupid? Mr. President, don’t you understand why seniors disapprove of your solutions for health care? This is why the seniors have more trust in the Republicans. Obama, you’ve failed the seniors; you’ve failed the American people! What can we law-abiding, tax-paying, patriotic Americans do to right this wrong? Write your senators. Actually, only Sen. Robert Casey; he is our only senator to support this. Ask him how he can support this injustice. Ask if he read this legislation before voting yes for it. Ask if he cares for his constituents or if he only cares about

his Democratic Party leaders. Demand answers from him! Remind him YOU are his boss.

Why? Both $27.3 billion spending plans would push the tough funding decisions to county commissioners, municipal officials and school board members. By severely cutting back – and in some cases eliminating – funding for programs that benefit our children, senior citizens and those with disabilities, the Republican budget would force local officials to raise local property taxes to make up the difference in lost dollars. It’s easy for Corbett and House Republicans to say “we don’t have the money” to stop the drastic cuts, but Revenue Department figures don’t back up that false claim. State revenue through April shows tax receipts are $500 million above projections. Let’s be clear: That’s not the state’s money to hold onto. It’s the taxpayers’ hard-earned money and it should be returned to them by providing additional funding for crucial programs that benefit our most needy residents. It’s my hope that as this year’s budget process unfolds, Senate Republicans will join House and Senate Democrats in making sure that $500 million is used to restore more of those cuts and not held onto for a future “rainy day.” It’s raining now in Pennsylvania.

jects during the Great Depression. But this time, most governments only see decades-old pools burning holes in already tight budgets. In the past two years, Anderson has closed two pools to the public, one shuttered for good and one hanging on by a thread, run by a swim club only for swim team practices and lessons. In all, four public pools within 20 miles of the city have closed since the economy went sour. “You think about American culture — swimming and summer just go together. A lot of these kids not having the opportunity to swim — it’s just hard to swallow. Not only is it important for safety, but what you should do as a kid is swim and have fun and be active,” said Tommy Starkweather, the swim team coach at the Sheppard Swim Center, which was closed to the public in January. But running a pool is an expensive proposition. The Anderson Swim Club spends $10,000 a month on insurance, operations and maintenance even for the pool’s current limited use. In Grand Traverse County, Mich., the only public pool for the county’s 87,000 residents lost $244,000 last year. “That’s three sheriff’s deputies on the road,” County Commissioner Christine Maxbauer said. Grand Traverse County is also facing a looming deficit of more than $1 million, and commissioners are debating whether it is fair to keep to pool open when other services get cut. “We have to focus on vital services ... . Clearly a swimming pool is not a vital service,” said Maxbauer, whose husband is a competitive swimmer. In Sacramento, Calif., the city’s more than 465,000 residents had 13 pools to choose from a decade ago. By the start of the summer of 2012, only three public pools will be open.

have scattered to the homes of friends and relatives or camped out in emergency shelters in the city. Some residents may leave town — New Orleans lost nearly one-third of its population after Katrina. Penny Musgraves is happy — and almost surprised — to be alive. But for Musgraves, whose low-income housing townhouse was ripped away above her head as she protected her cowering 6year-old daughter, the joy of surviving is beginning to give way to confusion and anxiety about the future. “I’m kind of scared,” said the 45-year-old mother, who is unemployed and currently living with her daughter at the Red Cross shelter set up at Missouri Southern State University. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.” While many of the survivors had insurance, it could be months, if not years, before they can rebuild. Removing the millions of tons of debris and remaking the city’s destroyed infrastructure will likely take well into the summer if not longer, though Rohr said the first phase of debris removal begins later this week. Rebuilding homes can’t start until that work is finished. For low-income residents, the Housing Authority of Joplin provides some housing. But it was not known how many, if any, of the homeless it can accommodate. Recent history suggests many won’t be able to wait for the answers to emerge or for the rebuilding to be completed. The

groundwater supplies and that federal oversight is needed to guard against too lax state regulation of the Marcellus Shale that includes a large swath of Pennsylvania and similar natural gasladen formations elsewhere in the country. Focus on safety The debate is heating up in Washington because the EPA is launching a study – the design of which is still being finalized – of whether fracking endangers groundwater supplies and has other harmful environmental impacts. The EPA says that initial results will be made public by the end of 2012, with a final report “following further research” released in 2014. The Department of Energy, meanwhile, in early May named experts to a panel to make recommendations on how to “improve the safety and environmental performance” of the fracking industry. “America’s vast natural gas resources can generate many new jobs and provide significant environmental benefits, but we need to ensure we harness these resources safely,” said Secretary of Energy Steven Chu in a release announcing the panel’s makeup. Included on the panel are environmentalists and industry experts, including Kathleen McGinty, former secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Some members of Congress, meanwhile, want to pass legislation called the FRAC Act – Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals – that takes away a the Bush administrationera law exempting fracking from federal Safe Drinking Water Act regulations and requiring drillers to disclose the chemicals used as part of the fracking process. The lead authors of that legislation in the Senate and House are Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, and Diana DeGette, D-Col.


The splash zone at Sheppard Swim Center is shown in Anderson, S.C. The splash zone won’t be used after city officials closed it and the indoor pool to the public because of budget cuts.

The city has tried for years to keep from closing any pools completely by shortening hours and closing them only on certain days. But the lingering economic downturn has cut $1million from Sacramento’s aquatics budget, leaving officials with just $700,000 for pools, said Dave Mitchell, operations manager for the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation. The pool closings and shuttering of other recreation opportunities leaves children with far fewer good choices to occupy their free time during the long summer months, Mitchell said. Pools “are just a safe place to be and be kids, to enjoy summer, to enjoy some times. These opportunities just aren’t going to be there for the youth and it is crushing,” Mitchell said. In Oak Park, one of Sacramento’s poorest neighborhoods, the local pool is scheduled to close next year along with a neighborhood community center. The Rev. Tony Sadler of the neighborhood’s Shiloh Baptist Church said both facilities are a resource

for families “just to survive in these economic times.” “In an area such as Oak Park, closing these places would be the equivalent of putting them back in a drug-infested war zone that has trapped our children generation after generation,” Sadler recently told the city council. In an odd twist, the Great Recession may be killing off a city amenity born during the Great Depression, when more than a thousand municipal pools were built across the country as public works projects, said Jeff Wiltse, author of a book called “Contested Waters: A Social History of Swimming Pools in America.” “It democratized pleasurable recreation and leisure. A municipal swimming pool offered to poor and working-class and middle-class American, sort of the trappings of the good life — cooling off in a pool on a hot day. Laying out in the sun,” Wiltse said. The first major round of pool closings happened during the bad economic times in the 1970s and 1980s. Those that survived now face an uncertain future

brought on by the latest economic upheaval, which could end up shuttering one of the few places outside public schools where people from a wide range of economic classes meet, Wiltse said. “We’re a much wealthier country than we were back during the 1930s, yet our reaction now to economic downturns is we need to cut public recreation,” Wiltse said. In South Carolina, an informal poll of swimming pools inspectors found 17 municipal pools have closed in the past five years, said Jim Ridge, recreational water compliance coordinator for the state Department of Health and Environmental Control. “The traditional municipal pool ... those are in decline,” Ridge said. “I think the primary reason is economics. They don’t age well.” In their place, more affluent communities are building water parks, where parks and recreation departments to charge $7 or $8 a person instead of the $2 or $3 admission more common to a regular pool.

“Natural gas drilling offers Pennsylvania tremendous economic opportunities if we do it right,” Casey said in a statement when his legislation was introduced earlier this year. “Pennsylvanians have a right to know the chemicals used in fracking that could make their way into drinking water and other water sources.” During the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on May 24, a session mainly devoted to the topic of high gasoline prices at the pump, EPA head Jackson said that “increasing American’s natural gas production is a good thing” because it produces a cleaner type of energy than other fossil fuels. When she was asked about whether fracking is a danger to groundwater supplies, Jackson said that “there’s evidence that it certainly can affect them,” but she added that there is not evidence that it actually has to date. “I am not aware of any proven case where the fracking process itself has affected water, although there are investigations ongoing,” she said. Amy Mall, a senior policy analyst at the Natural Resources Defense Council in Washington, focused in her blog on the part of Jackson’s testimony in which she stressed that the EPA will step in if a fracking operator’s drilling does jeopardize clean water supplies and a state regulatory body doesn’t act. Mall headlined her blog item: “Lisa Jackson commits to protecting clean drinking water from fracking risks.”

turing is one way of accessing that vital resource.” But, “to help ensure that energy production does not come at the expense of public health, EPA scientists are undertaking a study of this practice to better understand any potential impacts it may have on drinking water resources,” the EPA statement added. And even as the study unfolds, the EPA said it “will not hesitate to take any steps under the law to protect Americans whose health may be at risk, and we remain committed to working with states, who are on the front lines of permitting and regulating natural gas production activities.” An EPA spokeswoman said one of those steps occurred in Pennsylvania in mid-May, when the EPA said in a release that it had “directed six natural gas drillers to disclose how and where the companies dispose of or recycle drilling process water in the region.” The EPA continues to work with the state DEP to “ensure that natural gas production takes place safely and responsibly,” the agency said.

what must be disclosed about fracking operations in Pennsylvania and 33 other states, Lechelt said. Meanwhile, the EPA’s pending study of fracking is key, because, “We don’t have enough information, which is why this fracking study is so important about what happens underground during a fracturing operation,” Lechelt said. Nadia Steinzor, Earthworks’ Marcellus regional organizer, said that while there is some disclosure of what chemicals go into fracturing fluid, more details often are needed about what concentrations and volumes are used at each well site. Casey’s legislation would “bring underground injections of toxic chemicals back under federal regulation and authority,” said Steinzor. “That’s a really critical piece. This would force a uniform (national) standard if done right.” The companies carrying out fracking operations in the Marcellus Shale, too, are “supportive of the concept of the EPA study,” said Travis Windle, a spokesman for the Marcellus Shale Coalition, an industry organization whose members include nearly 190 companies. Windle said the industry already is taking steps to voluntarily disclose what chemicals are used in fracking fluid. Information about more than 1,000 wells around the country has thus far been put on a web site -- node/311 -- launched by state regulators, the FracFocus Chemical Disclosure Registry, according to the web site. Forty-two companies were participating as of last week, and more are adding their wells as time goes on, according to the web site, started about two months ago as a joint venture of the Ground Water Protection Council and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission. The industry is “confident that an EPA study grounded in the facts and science and peer-reviewed” will reach the conclusion that “hydraulic fracturing is no danger to groundwater,” Windle said. “We remain very hopeful and optimistic about the idea of giving this a full and thorough evaluation.”

Industry perspective But Mark Green stressed in his blog on the Washington-based American Petroleum Institute’s Energy Tomorrow web site that Jackson acknowledged: “ ‘Fracking’ hasn’t affected water.” Jackson has said similar things before, Green wrote, “but in the context of the current public debate over ‘fracking,’ it’s huge.” Asked about the pending study and its stance on federal regulation of fracking, the EPA said in a statement that, “Natural Casey: Regulation needed gas plays a key role in our naCasey says that federal regula- tion’s clean energy future and the process known as hydraulic fraction is warranted.

Involvement disputed Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, said state regulators don’t need any more help from the federal government. Marino said he is opposed to federal regulation of the fracking being done in the Marcellus Shale – noting there are wells operating a mile or so from his property and he has seen no evidence of any environmental harm. “I just think the state is doing a fantastic job” of regulating fracking in Northeast Pennsylvania, Marino said. “There is no reason for the federal government to get involved in this.” But Gwen Lechelt, of the environmental advocacy group Earthworks, whose Oil and Gas Accountability Project works on Marcellus Shale issues, says state regulations are not forcing companies to disclose enough about what chemicals go into fracturing fluid, and that companies aren’t disclosing enough of that information voluntarily, either. Casey’s proposed legislation would set a “federal floor” of

John Kearney of Moosic, brings together local pre-med students, their parents, faculty from local colleges and from PCOM, and PCOM alumni. “PCOM has trained a lot of doctors in this area (Northeastern Pennsylvania),” Paul noted. “That’s what attracted us initially.” Before being accepted into the school, Licia and Paul were interviewed by PCOM representatives. “When I went to the interview, I felt that PCOM was a good match for me,” Paul said. “They’re very interested in the whole person,” Licia added. “They’re interested in making sure that future physicians will be capable and dedicated to medicine for their entire careers.” Licia and Paul received encouragement from many quarters. They especially credit Dr. Michael Steele, chairman of the College of Science and Engineering at Wilkes, for inspiring them to work toward their goals. “If we came down with any senioritis, he would ensure that we stayed motivated,” Licia said. The twins’ interest in medicine was inspired by various life experiences. Especially influential was the twins’ volunteer experiences. Paul volunteers at Volunteers in Medicine in WilkesBarre, a medical clinic that serves the unemployed and underprivileged. A physician there, Dr. Susan Sordoni, impressed Paul.

current population could drop substantially. New Orleans lost 29 percent of its population after Hurricane Katrina as residents left and settled elsewhere. Greensburg, Kan., which was leveled by a tornado in 2007, lost about half its population even though the town was rebuilt. At the Red Cross shelter in Joplin, 150 people seemed grateful for the cot, warm food and donations of clothing. Many were trying to figure out where to go next. William Whittenback, 64, and his 67-year-old wife, Lorna, narrowly made it through the tornado. The roof of the home they’ve lived in for 15 years collapsed, leaving Lorna with a massive gash on her forehead and her cheeks black and blue. Every house in their neighborhood was a total loss. The couple have insurance, and Whittenback said he’ll rebuild in the same spot. With no family in the area, though, he is wondering where they can live until then. The weather brought Gerry Guitierrez to Joplin. Now it’s forcing him to leave. “What brought me here? Snow,” said Guitierrez, a 29-yearold massage therapist who arrived in Missouri just last month from San Benito, Texas. “I love the cold weather and the snow. I wanted to stay. Now I’ve got to come up with the money to go back.” Guitierrez lived in an apartment with a friend. But since his friend’s name was on the lease, not his, he doubts that FEMA will provide for him since he wasn’t a registered resident of Joplin. “How does it feel being homeless? Honestly, horrible,” he said. “It’s just so bad.” amend it. Members of the liaison subcommittee have been surveying county managers and row officers to obtain suggestions on how their offices and services should be incorporated into the new government system, said committee member Veronica Ciaruffoli. The responses will be put in a report for the new council, she said. Some transition committee members and citizens who serve on the subcommittees have volunteered many hours drafting policies, Ciaruffoli said. The ethics code, for example, will be more extensive than the one used by the state, she said. The committee also has to identify job duties that must be assigned to someone new on Jan. 2, particularly in row offices that will no longer have elected officials overseeing them, said transition committee member Richard Heffron. “She inspired me to keep pursuing a career in medicine,” Paul said. Licia volunteers at Diakon Hospice Saint John in WilkesBarre, working with people in their last days or weeks of life. She was surprised by the positive attitudes of the patients. “You would think people in hospice would be depressed, but the people I worked with had such great attitudes,” she said. Licia and Paul will graduate from PCOM in 2015, followed by residencies lasting anywhere from three to seven years, depending on the specialty they choose. As of right now, they are unsure what specialty they want to pursue. “That would be contingent on what we study and what’s interesting,” Paul said. Carol Fox, associate vice president for enrollment management at PCOM, is excited to have Licia and Paul enter the college. Fox met the twins at the PCOM reception in May. She said Licia and Paul are one of at least five sets of twins who have entered PCOM together over the years. “I think it’s wonderful when we have twins who are well-qualified and can be accepted into the same class,” she said. “We’re really looking forward to having them here.” The twins are unsure whether, after they graduate, they will go into practice together. “We lasted 23 years together, so who knows?” Paul said. But he believes that he and his sister will stay in the area. “I think the Wyoming Valley’s a great place to live. All things considered, it could happen.”

Yankees’ comeback wasted

Coach says move is in school’s ‘best interest’


SWB rallies for tie, only to have disastrous seventh inning cost team the game. By PETE CAVA For The Times Leader

INDIANAPOLIS – Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre got off to a lukewarm start on a 90-degree evening, heated up to erase a three-run deficit, and turned ice-cold in the seventh as host Indianapolis scored four runs – two of them unearned – en route to an 8-5 win over the Yankees. “We’re not a team that can give up more INDIANS than three outs in an inning,” said Scranton/Wilkes-Barre manager Dave Miley, YANKEES whose defense committed two costly mistakes in the decisive seventh inning. “We can’t afford to make errors like that, and it’s probably what cost us the game tonight.” The Indians spotted the Yanks a run in the first inning on a bungled double-play attempt. With one out, Ramiro Pena worked Indianapolis starter Sean Gallagher for a base on balls and moved to second on a single to center by Jesus Montero. Jorge Vazquez followed with a grounder back to the box, and Gallagher threw to second baseman Shelby Ford for the force. Ford’s relay to first was wild, however, and Pena breezed home with the game’s first run. Indianapolis answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning. Yankee right-hander Adam Warren, who allowed just three hits over eight innings in his last start against the Indians at PNC Park, gave up consecutive singles to Ford, Brian Friday, Alex Presley and John Bowker. Warren got Andy Marte on a grounder to short for a double play, with Presley taking third. Presley scored on Warren’s wild pitch for a 3-1 Indianapolis advantage. The Indians added another run in the third. Presley walked and took second on Bowker’s infield hit. Marte hit into a force play, putting runners at the corners. Presley came in on Matt



Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel resigned Monday. Tressel said in a statement that he met with university officials and agreed that it is in Ohio State’s best interest that he resign.

Top assistant will run team in ’11 Death penalty for coaches? JIM TRESSEL INSIDE By RUSTY MILLER AP College Football Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Jim Tressel, who guided Ohio State to its first national title in 34 years, resigned Monday amid NCAA violations from a tattoo-parlor scandal that sullied the image of one of the country’s top football programs. “After meeting with university officials, we agreed that it is in the best interest of Ohio State that I resign as head football coach,” Tressel wrote in the resignation letter he submitted on Monday morning. “The recent situation has been a distraction for our great university and I make this decision for the greater good of the school.” Assistant head coach Luke Fickell will be the coach for the 2011 season. He already had been selected to be the interim coach while Tressel served a five-game suspension.

Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch said he was unaware of any buyout or severance package. He added that Tressel had returned from vacation Sunday night and met with athletic director Gene Smith, who then met with staff. Tressel typed his resignation and submitted it to Smith, he said. Under terms of Tressel’s contract, which was worth around $3.5 million a year through the 2014 season, Ohio State is not required to pay him any money or provide any benefits upon

Jim Tressel was just working the system. For much of the past decade, he knew his job was safe even while his program flouted the rules over and over. The formula is well-known to everyone in the coaching profession: Win enough games, pad the coffers, capture a championship every now and then, and the job is yours unless you do something REALLY bad. Tressel finally did something REALLY bad but you still have to wonder why it took so long for this day to arrive.

FORTY FORT – The toughest competition for the winners of Memorial Day’s 31st annual Old Fort 5 Miler came from the weather. Chris Wadas led a field of 312 runners – battling the heat and humidity – to win top honors in 26 minutes, 26 seconds on Monday. “It was too hot to run today,” said Wadas, 29, of Plains Township, who is the head track and cross country coach at Misericordia University. “Dan (Pszeniczny) ran with me over the first mile. Then he dropped off the pace. Once I knew I was going to win, I didn’t push. I didn’t want to overdue it. I just tried to keep an even pace from mile three to the finish.” See RUN, Page 4B

n a grassy knoll overlooking cyclists speeding by, an out-oftown spectator offered an obser-

vation. “It’s beautiful here,” Erin Thomas said. Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder. Only a few handfuls of participants showed up for the Mohegan Sun Scorcher, a 36-mile Pro/Am bicycle race held Saturday at Hanover Industrial Park. Even less people turned out to watch them. “I had my girlfriend here – my number one fan,” said rider Colin Sandberg, who came up from Philadelphia to finish second in the pro division of Saturday’s race. “We always hope there’d be more fans. But it’s not a mainstream sport. Phil Cable is trying to change that. The former pro cyclist returned to his roots in the Wyoming Valley a few years ago after spending four years touring big-city venues with overwhelming support and interest. Now, Cable conjures up images of that happening around here. He’s becoming a driving force behind the Northeast Pennsylvania Cycling Series, which included a state time trial championship in Nicholson this weekend and will hold another community event on June 12 in Luzerne. “The one in Luzerne will be a festival atmosphere, with bands,” said Cable, a 42-year-old Harding resident. “Their business association gets it. They’re going to be involved.” Eventually, Cable’s hoping to draw a host of people into the sport. And he figures there’s no better place to do that than in Wilkes-Barre. For the past couple of years, he’s featured a cycling event that seems to draw more and more interest among city residents. “It’s starting to get there,” Cable said. Now he wants to drive it over the top. On Aug. 27, Cable is planning a cycling event that will show off the River Commons, the downtown lighting and all the improvements the city has undertaken over the past few years. “Wilkes-Barre is sort of my project race,” Cable said. “I want to make one race really an event that everybody knows about and wants to come to every year – spectators as well as racers. For the big races, the towns embrace it and make it a profitable thing for themselves. “They see it could be a lot of potential.” Don’t think the riders wouldn’t notice. “It helps,” said Ryan Shebelsky of Elizabethtown, N.J., the winner of Saturday’s pro race, who notices the larger turnouts in bigger cities. “Downtown Wilkes-Barre is kind of like that. It’s getting bigger every year.” It’s about to get bigger and better. Sometimes, though, you have to start small. Saturday’s run was moved to Hanover Industrial Park due to a change of venue at the last minute. But the riders still went full steam. So the competition wasn’t lacking, only the cheering. “This isn’t the right venue to see it,” Cable said. “It’s really a perfect race course, but it doesn’t show off the course to anybody.” More shows are coming. And when they’re showered with encouragement, it makes the practices many of these riders do on the days they work full-time jobs seem worth it. “We love it,” Sandberg said. “Most of us have tried to quit. But we’re still here.” They deserve a course full of fans right there with them.

Not the strongest fourteen race program carded for tonight at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, but with that said the potential for big payoffs looks strong. In some cases you have to take the good and the bad and make the most of a solid opportunity. Let’s just hope that I can have as much success today, as I did on Saturday night.

‘Anxious’ Nadal in French quarters; Sharapova wins By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS — Decoding Rafael Nadal’s self-evaluations can be a tricky proposition. Listen, for example, to the way the top-seeded Nadal spoke about his game and his mindset after handling 37th-ranked Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 Monday to reach the quarterfinals at the French Open, improve his record there to 42-1 and get closer to tying Bjorn Borg’s record of six championships in Paris. Nadal chastised himself for being “too anxious.” He said he needs to “hit the ball with a little bit more conviction.” Looking at

the big picture, Nadal insisted: “The thing is, you have to be (a) realist, and today, I’m not playing well enough to win this tournament.” Maybe he’s playing possum. Maybe he’s being sincere. Or maybe — as explained by Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach — this is just the way his nephew is. “All his life, Rafael never had big, big confidence,” Toni said Monday. “He’s not a guy who thinks, ’Oh, I am so good.’ Never. He tries to improve, he tries to play better, every day.” Toni’s nephew has done precisely that at Roland Garros. Since falling behind two-sets-to-

one against John Isner in the first round last week, he’s won 11 consecutive sets. He made half as many unforced errors as 2006 French Open semifinalist Ljubicic, 48-24. He accumulated 20 break points, converting six. After trailing 4-5, 30-all — “I felt like he felt the pressure,” said Ljubicic, who was two points from taking the first set there — Nadal steeled himself and won 30 of the next 32 points on his serve. “For moments, I am playing well. But for moments, I am still having (a) few mistakes in a row,” Nadal said. “That’s what cannot happen in (the) next round.” That’s because he’ll face No. 5 Robin Soderling of Sweden, the

only man to defeat Nadal at the French Open — in the fourth round in 2009. It’s also a rematch of last year’s final, which Nadal won in straight sets. While Nadal and Soderling both advanced with relative ease Monday, 34th-ranked Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina put in a lot of work before edging Alejandro Falla of Colombia 4-6, 6-2, 1-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 to return to the Roland Garros quarterfinals for the first time since 2004. Chela will play No. 4 Andy Murray or No. 15 Viktor Troicki, whose match was suspended because of darkness tied at two sets each. Maria Sharapova went two

years without getting to the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam tournament, but she made it back by erasing deficits in both sets and beating 12th-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 7-6 (4), 7-5. The three-time major champion fell behind 4-1 in the first set, then 5-3 in the second, where she had to fend off five set points. Sharapova finished with far more winners, 47-13, and unforced errors, 44-12. Her quarterfinal opponent will be No. 15 Andrea Petkovic of Germany, who defeated No. 25 Maria Kirilenko AP PHOTO 6-2, 2-6, 6-4. Another quarterfinal will have No. 4 Victoria Azarenka Rafael Nadal returns the ball to of Belarus against No. 6 Li Na of Ivan Ljubicic during their match at the French Open. China.



Canada not behind Canucks

Champs of free agency seek much bigger win By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

Despite a core of diehard fans, Vancouver doesn’t draw support from most of country. By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Dan Hamhuis still recalls the pit in his 11-year-old stomach when the Vancouver Canucks fell one victory short of the Stanley Cup in 1994. Hamhuis was obsessed with the Canucks while was growing up in Smithers, a small town about 700 miles northwest of Vancouver in the British Columbia wilds. A grandson of Dutch postwar immigrants, he delighted in impersonating star forward Trevor Linden and goalie Kirk McLean while playing pond hockey. So what if the Canucks had never won a championship — and still haven’t? So what if they were better known for hideous jerseys than beautiful play? “It was my team, so it didn’t really matter a whole lot,” Hamhuis said. “I was crushed when they didn’t win the Stanley Cup in ’94, but I was still a fan. To the north, to the small towns up there, I still go there every year, and I know how much the Canucks mean to everybody. They’ve been behind us for a long time.” Hamhuis is now a defenseman on perhaps the best Vancouver team ever assembled. The Canucks dominated the NHL regular season with 54 wins and 117 points before mostly rolling through the West playoffs. They’re favored to win the Stanley Cup finals, which begin Wednesday night against the Boston Bruins in the same rink where Canada won Olympic gold a year ago. Hamhuis believes every hamlet in British Columbia is behind this creative, sophisticated team with international flair and resplendent green-and-blue sweaters. The Canucks also realize they aren’t Canada’s Team — and that’s just fine with them. Whenever a Canadian team reaches the Cup finals, the entire nation traditionally jumps on its bandwagon. According to the old logic, the nation that invented hockey just wants the Cup back, no matter which team ends a drought currently standing at 18 years. Even Prime Minister Stephen Harper endorsed the concept when Vancouver became the only Canadian team left in the playoffs after Boston knocked out Montreal. But it’s tough to get Canadians behind the Canucks — or anything from Vancouver, which has a pleasant climate and remote location that sets it apart from the rest of the Great White North. “I don’t know if that applies to us, but I do know our fans are really into us,” said Raffi Torres, the hard-nosed forechecker who experienced that Canada’s Team love when he played for Edmonton during its 2006 run to an agonizing Game 7 loss in the Cup finals.

My legs helped me fight through the humidity.” Bob Yonick, a 27-year-old, won the First Male Forty Fort Resident to Finish award, with a 32:21 finishing time. Emily Bilbow, 31, won the First Female Forty Fort Resident to Finish award, clocking in at 35:14. The race drew a record 337 entrants. But the weather probably cut into the number of participants, who actually ran. There were 10 more finishers in last year’s race.

Friday got the Indians started with a double and went to third on an infield out. With the Yankees playing in, Bowker lined a shot toward left. But Laird snared the ball and stepped on third for an inning-ending double play. Laird ignited a sixth-inning rally that put Scranton/WilkesBarre on top.

Molina’s RBI single plated Laird as the Yanks went up 5-4. The Indians pulled ahead in the seventh, aided by a botched rundown play. Kanekoa Texeira, who replaced Warren, gave up a leadoff double to Ford. When Laird couldn’t handle Friday’s sharp grounder, Ford wound up at third. Presley followed with a grounder to Vazquez at first, and the Yanks appeared to have Ford caught in a rundown between third and home. But Vazquez, covering home, dropped the ball and Ford scored to make it 5-5. Friday went to third and Presley took second on the play. Both scored on Bowker’s hit up the middle. Bowker took second

MIAMI — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade joked often, smiled easily, answered thoughtfully. A few minutes later, Dirk Nowitzki bounded up to a podium and offered a big “How we doin!” to the assembled media. You’d never know only one of them is a “good guy.” Less than a year after solidifying their place as the NBA’s villains with their high-profile partnership last summer, James, Wade and the Miami Heat are in the NBA finals against the Dallas Mavericks and Nowitzki, being portrayed as a sort of anti-James for sticking with his home team instead of taking the easy way out and going elsewhere for a better shot at a title. And if you hated the theatrics of last summer, the light shows, pep rally, and everything else Miami did to celebrate winning the championship of July, better look away. The Heat are just four wins from the first of several titles that many predicted when James bolted Cleveland for South Florida. The way it happened bothered plenty, but James only cares about the result. “You know, we’ve got a lot of flack this year, mostly because of myself. And we’ve tried to use that as motivation every day we get on the basketball court,” James said Monday. “But just play the game of basketball. That’s all we can do is play the game of basketball at a high level. Play Miami Heat basketball.” Five years after Wade largely overwhelmed the Mavericks by himself to win the Heat’s first championship, the teams arrive at Game 1 of the rematch today through decidedly different constructions. The Heat essentially sacrificed seasons for salary-cap space, making the playoffs through Wade’s greatness but with no realistic chance of winning. But the gamble paid off in July, when James and Chris Bosh agreed to come and Wade committed to stay, giving Miami the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 players on perhaps the greatest free-agency list in NBA history. Nowitzki’s name was on it, too, and he even said he would have listened if had James and Wade tried to recruit him. His preference was to remain in Dallas, as long as owner Mark Cuban would do what it takes to give the big

German another shot at a ring. “Ultimately, that’s where my heart was at. I almost felt like we had unfinished business after ’06,” Nowitzki said. “Had a great meeting with Mark there, free agency. All I needed was reassurance that he was going to keep going and keep building around this team, and keep putting all his resources for us to hopefully be up there one day. We’re here again at the big stage. Hopefully we can turn it around this year and finish strong.” With reliable role players such as Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and Shawn Marion but no defined second scorer, the Mavericks arrived in the postseason as an afterthought, maybe even a firstround upset loser to Portland. Instead, a stunning sweep of the Lakers in the second round was followed by Nowitzki’s spectacular play against Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals, making the Mavs the last hope for the Heat haters who wanted Boston or Chicago to humble Miami. “We are facing a very tough team, a very good team with a bunch of closers and leaders. And so we’ve got to just go from there and bring our best game,” Nowitzki said. “But we as players, we’re not really worried about who are the good guys or the bad guys, what the fans want. That’s not going to matter to us, anyhow.” Nowitzki believed the Heat were the favorites “on paper” last summer, but things changed by the time they met twice in the first two months of the season. Dallas beat Miami both times — the Mavs have won the last14 regular-season meetings — as the Heat stumbled to a 9-8 start amid speculation coach Erik Spoelstra could be fired, and criticism that James’ and Wade’s styles couldn’t work together.

on the throw home and scored on Marte’s single to close out the scoring. Texeira, making his second appearance since coming over from the Kansas City Royals organization, was charged with the loss. The win went to Tony Watson (2-2), the third of four Indianapolis pitchers. Watson threw two scoreless innings, giving up one hit while striking out five. Tim Wood blanked the Yankees in the ninth for his 11th save. Notes: Brewer turned in web gems in consecutive innings. The Yankee right fielder made a diving catch of Ford’s looper to end the second, and when Friday

opened the third with a drive toward the corner, Brewer laid out to take away an extra-base hit. Montero, the designated hitter, went 2-for-4 and has now hit in 10 consecutive games. Justin Maxwell was named International League Player of the Week for May 23-29. The switchhitting outfielder hit safely in all six games during that stretch, slugging three homers and scoring ten runs. The four-game series at Indianapolis series continues Tuesday with a 7:05 p.m. contest. Right-hander Carlos Silva (1-0, 2.92) is scheduled to start for the Yankees against left-hander Rudy Owens (4-3, 4.21).

Report: Pryor facing significant inquiry The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — On the same day coach Jim Tressel resigned in the wake of an NCAA investigation, The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that the NCAA and Ohio State are looking into whether star quarterback Terrelle Pryor received cars and other extra benefits. Pryor, who will be a senior this fall, has already been interviewed at least once by investigators, the paper reported. The newspaper cited unnamed sources who said this is the most significant inquiry of Pryor. The NCAA and Ohio State are also probing more than 50 car purchases by Buckeyes players, their families and friends. He and four other players have been suspended for the first five

games this fall for accepting improper benefits from a local tattoo-shop owner. Tressel knew of those benefits and did not report it to Ohio State or NCAA Pryor officials. Tressel resigned early Monday citing NCAA violations which he said had “been a distraction” for Ohio State. The newspaper’s sources say that Pryor has been connected to at least six vehicles during his time at Ohio State. A university spokesman declined to confirm any reports dealing with individual athletes. The Dispatch reported in January

that Pryor had been stopped three times for traffic violations over the past three years, each time driving cars that were owned by a car salesman or a Columbus used-car dealership where the salesman worked. The salesman, Aaron Kniffin, told the newspaper that while working at a dealership in 2008, he allowed Pryor to drive his SUV to Pryor’s hometown of Jeannette, Pa., and show it to his mother. Pryor did not buy the vehicle. Kniffin also said he arranged for Pryor to use a 2009 Dodge while Pryor’s car was being worked on at another dealership where Kniffin worked. At least one of the dealerships has dozens of autographed jerseys hanging up inside its offices. Pryor said, at

the time, that he doesn’t remember signing his jersey that hangs in the dealership. “I sign a lot of stuff for Buckeye fans — I don’t like to turn down fans,” he said. “But I don’t do it to get any favors or discounts.” Investigators are also looking into Pryor’s relationship with a businessman in his hometown, Ted Sarniak, who has served as his mentor. Sarniak was a prominent player in the recruitment of Pryor, considered the nation’s No. 1 quarterback recruit when he graduated. Ohio State has refused an Associated Press records request seeking communications between Ohio State officials, coaches, Tressel and Sarniak, citing a federal privacy law that shields students.

A timeline leading up to Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel’s resignation Monday.

April 2, 2010, 2:32 p.m.

Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel receives an email from Columbus attorney Christopher T. Cicero, the first of 12 they exchange. Cicero, a former Ohio State walk-on player in the 1980s, says he has been told current Buckeyes players have been selling signed memorabilia to tattoo parlor owner Edward Rife, who is under federal investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office. In three postscripts, Cicero also mentions Rife’s criminal history and that Rife was being investigated for drug trafficking. Tressel does not tell athletic director Gene Smith, any of his superiors, the school’s compliance department or legal department or the NCAA about the information. But he does forward it to Ted Sarniak, a 67-year-old businessman in Jeannette, Pa., who is quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s “mentor,” with a note saying, “(Cicero) has always looked out for us.”

April 2, 6:32 p.m.

Tressel replies to Cicero, “Thanks. I will get on it ASAP .... jt”

April 16, 9:43 a.m.

Cicero emails Tressel again, providing additional details about the OSU players’ activities, including some information gleaned from a 90-minute conversation he had with Rife. Cicero says nine Big Ten championship rings, 15 pairs of cleats, four or five jerseys and one national championship ring have been offered for cash or trade by players — “for not that much.” Cicero writes, “What I tell you is confidential.” Before that, over a two-week period, no secrecy had been requested.

What we need is a death penalty for coaches. After two strikes, he’s done. For good. Tressel would have been gone long ago. Even before he got to Ohio State, Tressel ran afoul of the rules with his recruitment of the star quarterback at little Youngstown State. Turns out, the man known as “the Vest” was just getting warmed up. The sliminess went big time in the Big Ten, from the offensive coordinator who tried to arrange a loan AND a car for a recruit, to the future Heisman Trophy winner taking 500 bills from a booster. There was never a shortage of Buckeyes on the arrest blotter, and the sleaze-ometer was flashing like a slot machine when Tressel somehow figured out a way to get Maurice Clarett in school long enough to win a national championship before he traded his football uniform for prison scrubs. No problem, coach. As long as we’re beating Michigan and capturing trophies, it’s all good. They could shut down these rogues if they really wanted to, but no one has the guts to take on deluded alumni who equate the success of athletic programs with the worth of their own lives? Certainly not Ohio State president-slash-apologist Gordon Gee, who joked back in February that he had no intention of firing Tressel. “Are you kidding?” Gee said. “I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me.” Well, this episode of “Columbus Ink” wound up leading to the coach’s cancellation. Tressel was unable to stave off the critics of his don’t-ask-and-definitely-don’t-tell policy by volunteering for a five-game suspension and agreeing to pay a hefty fine. Coming across a hypocrite to the very end, Tressel signed off his resignation letter by saying, “We know that God has a plan for us and we will be fine. We will be Buckeyes forever.” As long as that plan doesn’t include another coaching job, we’ll be good with it. Some might be stunned by the seemingly sudden downfall for one of America’s top coaches (after all, Tressel was leading the Buckeyes to a Sugar Bowl victory over Arkansas less than five months ago), but it never should’ve gone on this long. The first major violation is enough to earn the head coach a one-year suspension, whether or not he was directly involved in the wrongdoing. Much like international doping standards hold athletes responsible for anything that goes into their bodies, a coach should be accountable for whatever is going on in his program. A two-strike-and-you’re-outrule would prevent someone such as Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari from skipping around the country just ahead of those pesky investigators. He had already moved on to his next gig when first UMass, then Memphis, had to forfeit any mention of their Final Four appearances because they had used ineligible players.

Tressel timeline

Tressel replies, “I hear you!! It is unbelievable!! Thanks for your help....keep me posted as to what I need to do if anything. I will keep pounding these kids hoping they grow up ....jt”

April 16, 2:24 p.m.

Cicero replies, suggesting that the players not be allowed to go to Rife’s house or his tattoo parlor nor to call him on his cell phone “because if he gets arrested, and that seems to be the plan, we dont want their phone numbers in his cell phone that the government will trace. He really is a drug dealer.” He emphasizes the severity of the federal case against Rife.

June 6, 9:15 p.m.

After they trade several more emails, Tressel thanks Cicero. They exchange no more emails.

Sept. 13

Tressel signs an annual NCAA certificate of compliance form indicating he knows of no violations and has reported to the school any knowledge of possible violations.

Players, alums stand behind Tressel

By JoANNE VIVIANO Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — As others labeled him a cheater and liar, Ohio State fans stood by Jim Tressel on Monday as the coach resigned amid an NCAA investigation into the football program. A red spray-painted “Tressel til I die” banner hung over a porch near campus, and members of “Buckeye Nation” on Twitter continued to sing praises for the coach who led the team to a national championship and lost to rival Michigan only once in his 10 years at the helm of the Buckeyes. Ohio State announced the resignation as the athletic department approaches an Aug. 12 date with the NCAA’s infractions committee over several possible rules violations stemming from players selling memorabilia to the owner of a local tattoo shop. Buckeyes fans and players immediately came to Tressel’s defense. Starting linebacker Andrew Sweat tweeted, “You have done a tremendous amount for us as football players but more importantly developing us as men.” Former tight end Jake Ballard called Tressel “one of the best human beings I have ever met” and said “all he ever did was care and help people.” Students on campus also rallied around their former coach.

his resignation. In a university video posted on, Smith said Tressel met with his Buckeyes players on Monday morning. “Coach Tressel did what we all knew he would do,” Smith said. “He did an eloquent job of explaining to the young men what transition really means and what they really needed to focus on. So he met with the team and exited.” Smith went on to thank Tressel, express his confidence in Fickell and to say that Ohio State would not comment on “any of the matters around (the NCAA) case or any further accusations that may emerge.” The resignation was first reported by The Columbus Dispatch. Clearly, the turmoil had been building. The resignation comes nearly three months after Ohio State called a news conference to announce it has suspended Tressel for two games — later increasing the ban to five games to coinci-

Matt Parker and Curt Stine, who graduate this spring, heard honks from passing motorists and words of support from pedestrians after they turned a white blanket into their “Tressel til I die” banner and hung it above their porch. “A lot of the students here love Tressel because of all the winning we’ve done recently, especially beating Michigan,” said Parker, a political science major planning to attend law school at the University of Buffalo. Parker, 22, said he wasn’t surprised by the resignation itself, but by its timing, about three months after Ohio state President E. Gordon Gee and Athletic Director Gene Smith had expressed their support for the coach. “I figured he was our coach and we were gonna fight through it with him,” said Stine, 21, a political science major and logistics manager for UPS. “I don’t think it was his decision so much as the athletic department putting pressure.” In March, Ohio State announced it had suspended Tressel for two games and fined him $250,000 for failing to report what he knew about players receiving improper benefits from the tattooparlor owner. The suspension was later increased to five games, the same punishment given five players who sold memorabilia, including star quarter-

de with the players’ punishment — and fined him $250,000 for knowing his players had received improper benefits from a local tattoo-parlor owner. The school said at the time it was “very surprised and disappointed” in Tressel. Yet, the school still managed to crack jokes. Asked if he considered firing Tressel, Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee said then: “No, are you kidding? Let me just be very clear: I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me.” Gee was not joking about the Tressel situation over the weekend. Ohio State released a letter from Gee to the university’s board of trustees which said, “As you all know, I appointed a special committee to analyze and provide advice to me regarding issues attendant to our football program. In consultation with the senior leadership of the university and the senior leadership of the board, I have been actively reviewing the matter and have accepted coach Tressel’s resignation.” Tressel’s downfall came with public and media pressure mounting on Ohio State, its board of trustees, Gee and Smith.

back Terrelle Pryor. Tressel, 58, had a record of106-22-0 in 10 years at Ohio State. He led the Buckeyes to a national championship and eight Bowl Championship Series games. Prior to taking over the Buckeyes, he had a 135-57-2 record in 15 years at Youngstown State. Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini, who grew up in Youngstown and played free safety at Ohio State, issued a statement calling Tressel “an outstanding football coach and a good man.” “I’ve followed and respected his career since his days at Youngstown State, and through his tremendous success at Ohio State the past decade,” he said. “He will be missed in college football.” Alumni who rang in to support the coach were surprised by the resignation. “I was completely shocked and saddened by it,” said Eddie Langhenry, a 2008 graduate in sports and leisure studies who grew up in Cleveland. “I wouldn’t deny he did something wrong, but thought he was going to serve his penalty and coach through it.” Tamieka Cobb, a 2003 graduate, said she “immediately just stopped” when she heard about the resignation. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Cobb, 29, a real estate agent in Columbus. “It’s like the end of era.” “We look forward to refocusing the football program on doing what we do best — representing this extraordinary university and its values on the field, in the classroom, and in life,” Smith said in a statement Monday. “We look forward to supporting Luke Fickell in his role as our football coach. We have full confidence in his ability to lead our football program.” Tressel and Ohio State were to go before the NCAA’s infractions committee Aug. 12 to answer questions about the player violations and why Tressel did not report them. He denied knowledge of improper benefits to players until confronted by investigators with emails that showed he had known since April 2010. After several NCAA violations by him or his players over the years, Tressel’s problems deepened after learning several players received cash or discounted tattoos. Contrary to NCAA bylaws — and his own contract — Tressel received emails from a former player about this and did not tell his athletic director, university president, compliance or legal departments or the NCAA for more than nine months.

The U.S. attorney’s office notifies Ohio State officials that it has discovered some Ohio State memorabilia during a raid on Rife’s home and/or the tattoo parlor and asks if the items were stolen. A day later, the athletic department is informed. The list of dozens of items released later estimates the value at $12,000 to $15,000.

Dec. 9

Tressel says this is the first time he hears about his players’ involvement with Rife, when told by school officials.

Dec. 16

OSU interviews the six players found to be involved with Rife (Pryor, tailback Daniel Herron, Posey, offensive lineman Mike Adams, defensive lineman Solomon Thomas and defensive back Jordan Whiting). Smith later thanks the players for their conduct in these interviews, “because they were honest (and) forthright.” Tressel does not disclose his knowledge of the memorabilia sales.

Dec. 19

OSU turns in a self-report to the NCAA and declares the six players ineligible.

Dec. 21

The NCAA conducts phone interviews with the players and then asks for additional information, which Ohio State provides on Dec. 22.

Dec. 22

The NCAA notifies Ohio State of five-game suspensions for five players and one game for Whiting. All must also pay to charity the equivalent of the money and services they received. But the NCAA does allow the players to participate in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 4.

Dec. 23

Smith and Tressel have a news conference to announce the sanctions. Tressel says the players must have known what they were doing was a violation of NCAA rules: “I suppose that would be something rattling around inside the head of each of them individually. We all have a little sensor within us, ’Well, I’m not sure if I should be doing this.”’

Jan. 13, 2011

While reviewing information to appeal the players’ suspensions, Ohio State’s office of legal affairs finds Tressel’s email exchanges with Cicero.

Jan. 16

Presented with the emails, Tressel finally acknowledges them. In its self-report to the NCAA, filed later, Ohio State officials say of Tressel, “As you know, shortly thereafter, you were informed of this and invited to participate” in the investigation.

Feb. 8

NCAA and school officials interview Tressel. Tressel for the first time admits he knows he committed an NCAA violation.

March 7

Yahoo! Sports publishes a story in which a source says that Tressel had knowledge of his players’ potential NCAA violations as early as April and did not disclose it. Smith has his staff rush to finish the selfreport.

March 8

Ohio State reports Tressel’s violation to the NCAA and calls a news conference to announce it has suspended Tressel for two games (later increased to five games to coincide with the players’ punishment) and has fined him $250,000. In the letter to the NCAA, Ohio State says, “The institution is very surprised and disappointed in Coach Tressel’s lack of action in this matter.” Yet at the news conference, university President E. Gordon Gee and Smith lavish praise on Tressel. Asked if he considered firing Tressel, Gee jokes, “No, are you kidding? Let me just be very clear: I’m just hopeful the coach doesn’t dismiss me.”

April 19

Smith says Tressel’s $250,000 fine may not cover the cost of the NCAA investigation. Ohio State releases a copy of the NCAA compliance form Tressel signed in September. The NCAA continues to deliberate additional sanctions.

May 30

Ohio State announces Tressel has resigned. Assistant Luke Fickell, already tabbed to coach the team during Tressel’s suspension, will be interim coach for the 2011 season. The search for a new permanent head coach will begin following the season.

Hincapie is edged in dramatic finish

Shackleford arrives for a Belmont test

Tour de France stage winner loses national title on photo finish to Matthew Busche. By PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports Writer

GREENVILLE, S.C. — When Matthew Busche outsprinted hometown favorite George Hincapie at the line Monday to win the USC Cycling pro road race, it brought a rousing end to the national championships. “It was a great weekend for USA Cycling,” said Steve Johnson, the organization’s CEO. And it was a much needed one after last week when riders at the Tour of California spent as much time answering questions of cycling’s dark side as about the race. That was because of a “60 Minutes” report in which Lance Armstrong’s former teammate Tyler Hamilton said he saw Armstrong use performance-enhancing drugs. The CBS program also said Hincapie, Armstrong’s close friend and ex-teammate, told federal authorities he and Armstrong supplied each other with performance-enhancers and discussed them. Armstrong has denied Hamilton’s claims and Hincapie said in a statement he did not talk with “60 Minutes.” This weekend, though, the focus was on the country’s best cyclists and a dramatic photo finish to decide a national championship. Busche and Hincapie were part of a four-man breakaway with Ted King and Tejay Van Garderen that stayed in synch until the final moments of the

115-mile race. Hincapie edged forward and seemed a few strides from his fourth road race title when the 26-year-old Busche caught him at the line in a virtual dead heat. Thousands of people at the finish awaited word on a winner, most hoping to cheer Hincapie, who lives and trains in this city. Busche, who finished third behind Dave Zabriskie in Saturday’s time trial championship, wasn’t sure if he should celebrate or congratulate his rival. Photos, though, showed Busche on top by the width of a tire as he took the stars-andstripes jersey for the next year. “I don’t know when this ever sinks in,” Busche said. Busche played over the endgame scenarios in his mind those final miles. Hincapie is one of the best closers in cycling, a Tour de France stage winner who’s been a teammate to eight Tour victories — seven of them by Armstrong. “It’s hard to go to the line with George,” Busche said. “But I felt like I had my legs.” Hincapie thought he made his move at exactly the right time and was a bit surprised when Busche fought back. Hincapie was also bothered by a leg cramp down the stretch. “I gave everything I possibly had,” he said. King was third and Van Garderen fourth. Defending champ Ben King was eighth as only 44 of the 105 starters crossed the line in temperatures that reached into the mid-90s. The heat didn’t wilt the enthusiasm of spectators as the city held the championships for the sixth straight year. The

weekend was moved from September to May, giving cycling a chance to blossom away from the start of college football, the region’s king sport. Crowds also were not turned away by the continuing investigation into Armstrong. Organizers say 300,000 people have watched over the first five years. “I thought it looked like at least as big as the others, both in numbers and enthusiasm,” Johnson said. Roy Wolfe, 56, of Taylors, said he took up cycling seriously the past couple of years because of the national championships and the support the region’s shown for the sport. He’s not overly bothered by the allegations. “I wish doping wasn’t an issue,” he said. “But it’s like every sport, it’s the world we live in.” The national championships are scheduled to return to Greenville in 2012. Hincapie

said the region has taken to the event even more than he imagined when it first raced here in 2006. “This time was huge with some of the parties we saw going on,” Hincapie said. Were organizers worried about the “60 Minutes” report stealing the headlines from rising young competitors here like 20-year-old world champion Taylor Phinney and 22-year-old Ben King? “I think people are ready to move on and think about the future,” said Chris Aronhalt, executive director of Medalist Sport which staged the championships. Joel Ferhrman of Atlanta was the top fundraiser for the Stars and Stripes Challenge, a charity event held Sunday in nearby Travelers Rest. He says the best athletes in all sports are pushing for any edge they can get. “I don’t fault them,” he said. “I think that’s how all sports are really.”

NEW YORK — Shackleford is in place to run in the Belmont Stakes, arriving in New York on Monday after an overnight van ride from Louisville, Ky. A shorter trip — around the 11⁄2-mile oval at Belmont Park on Wednesday — may determine whether the Preakness winner will compete in the final leg of the Triple Crown in a rubber match against Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom. “He looks good,” trainer Dale Romans’ assistant, Scotty Everett, said as Shackleford was walked off the van and into his barn. “We are excited to have him here at Belmont.” Romans, still at Churchill Downs, said Shackleford would be walked around the barn today before going to the track Wednesday. The trainer wants to make sure the 3-year-old colt is in top condition before committing to the Belmont. Last week, Animal Kingdom trainer Graham Motion confirmed the Derby winner would run in the Belmont on June11and arrive in New York early next week. The colt is training at Motion’s base at Fair Hill in Elkton,

Md. Shackleford finished fourth in the Derby on May 7 after leading in the stretch; Animal Kingdom was a close second in the Preakness two weeks later. If Shackleford runs, it will be the 20th time — first since 2005 — that the Derby and Preakness winners competed in the Belmont. In ’05, Preakness winner Afleet Alex beat Derby winner Giacomo. Among the other contenders are Derby runners Nehro (second), Mucho Macho Man (third, sixth in Preakness), Master of Hounds (fifth), Santiva (sixth), Brilliant Speed (seventh) and Stay Thirsty (12th), as well as Harlan’s Hello, Isn’t He Perfect (ninth, Preakness), Monzon, Prime Cut and Ruler On Ice. Nehro, beaten 23⁄4 lengths in the Derby, worked out Monday at Churchill Downs, zipping six furlongs in 1:12.20 under exercise rider Carlos Rosas. “I was very pleased with the move,” trainer Steve Asmussen said. “It was the best work I’ve seen him lay down.” Asmussen said Nehro likely will be sent to New York on Thursday, with a final workout set for early next week.


Briggs powers UVA to crown The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Colin Briggs scored five goals and seventhseeded Virginia edged Maryland 9-7 Monday in the NCAA men’s lacrosse championship. Briggs, who did not play in Saturday’s semifinals after being suspended due to a violation of team rules, scored three times on un-

contested shots and twice beat defenders 1-on-1, earning the most outstanding player award. Matt White scored three times and Nick O’Reilly had a goal and four assists for the Cavaliers. Grant Catalino had two goals and an assist for unseeded Maryland (13-6). Goalie Niko Amato made eight saves.

World markets cautious

stock markets mostly dipped World on Monday amid concerns about

Greece’s financial future and low trading volumes due to holidays in the United States and Britain. While most major economies are expected to keep growing, evidence is mounting that many around the world are struggling to expand as fast as they did last year. European governments are struggling with debts and squeezed budgets. High unemployment, depressed real estate and still-high oil prices are slowing the U.S. economy. In China, interest-rate hikes designed to reduce inflation are slowing growth. In Europe, tensions are high over Greece’s debt load and the lack of political agreement over how to reduce it. The EU has said a cross-party consensus on new austerity measures is vital for the country to get more help. Traders remained wary on Monday, despite reports that European officials are preparing new support measures.

Christine Lagarde kicks off global tour to promote her candidacy. By MARCO SIBAJA Associated Press

BRASILIA, Brazil — French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde was in Brazil on Monday to kick off a global tour promoting her candidacy to head the International Monetary Fund. Lagarde has emerged as the odds-on favorite for the job. Her appointment would make her the first woman in charge of the scandal-rocked fund but may also increase tensions with developing nations that argue countries out-

side of Europe should be allowed to lead the organization. Brazilian officials have not spoken out in favor or against Lagarde’s candidacy. But they previously have Lagarde emphasized that the IMF’s next leader should be chosen on merits, not based on geography. The IMF is hunting for a new leader to replace former managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, of France, who quit May 18 after he was accused of attempting to rape a New York hotel maid. He has denied the allegations.

Lagarde will meet with the head of Brazil’s Central Bank and also the nation’s finance minister, Guido Mantega. In recent years, Mantega has loudly fought for reforms in the IMF, World Bank and other multilateral institutions that would take into account the growth of emerging nations such as Brazil, China and India. “We must establish meritocracy, so that the person leading the IMF is selected for their merits and not for being European,” Mantega said earlier this month. “You can have a competent European ... but you can have a representative from an emerging nation who is competent as well.”

New sitting business takes care of pets in the comfort of their homes while their owners enjoy being away without worry

The chief executive officer of Chrysler and Fiat says he and Canadian authorities have begun talking about purchasing Canada’s 1.7 percent ownership in Chrysler. The Canadian federal government and provincial Ontario governments received 1.7 percent of Chrysler two years ago as part of a bailout that also provided $1.7 billion in loans to help the Detroit company survive. Chrysler, already controlled by Fiat, recently paid back the last of the money it borrowed from the Canadian and American governments. Fiat then began the process of buying the shares owned by the U.S. government. Chief executive Sergio Marchionne said Monday that he and Canada’s finance minister discussed it. He says they are quite willing to consider purchasing Canada’s interest.

Fortis Inc. makes buy


The Canadian utility Fortis Inc. said on Monday that it will purchase electricity distributor Central Vermont Public Service Corp. for about $470 million to get a foothold in the U.S. energy market. Fortis will pay $35.10 per share in cash for CVPS. That represents a premium of $10.78, or around 44 percent, to the closing price of CVPS shares on Friday. Fortis will also assume the utility’s debt of $230 million. CVPS shareholders and regulatory agencies still have to approve the deal, which should happen in six to 12 months, Fortis said. Fortis said it expects to grow in the U.S. and the purchase would add to earnings within the first year.

China ups electricity rates China has raised electricity rates by about 20 yuan (about $3) per 1,000 kilowatt hours for some industrial users as parts of the country grapple with severe power shortages, a report said Monday. Residential electricity rates remain unchanged, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. It gave no details about where the changes would be imposed. The move presumably is meant to encourage conservation and motivate electricity utilities saddled with losses from surging coal and oil costs to produce more electricity. Much of central China is enduring its worst energy crisis in years, with factories and residents facing power cuts as supply runs short of demand — a problem worsening as a drought dries rivers, reducing hydroelectric capacity. Closures of older coal-fired plants to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants have also cut into supply. China Electricity Council has estimated a power shortfall of up to 40 million kilowatts in the summer.

Natalie and Rob Sinex sit with their pets, Petey, a Basset Bound, and cat Joe Joe at their Dallas Township home. They run a pet-sitting business.

Putting pets at ease By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS TWP. – Natalie and Rob Sinex moved back to the Wyoming Valley and had the itch to start a local pet-sitting business. So instead of heading to the closest scratching post, they went through with their plans, and the Ruby Slipper Pet Sitting Agency was born. The Dallas Township couple ran Mrs. Nanny Paws Pet Sitting Service in the Lehigh Valley before having to sell it to Rob’s mother when they moved to Luzerne County to be closer to her family. But the love of keeping pets calm, happy and comfortable while owners are on vacation or at work was constantly on their mind. Rob, an accountant, said he did some research on the local area to see if the couple could successfully open a second business here. “Many people we talked with did not know what a pet-sitting business was,” he said. Doing some market research, he found there were only about four other pet-sitting businesses in the Wilkes-

Barre, Kingston and Back Mountain area. Also, he learned within a 10-mile radius, about 10,000 homes have pets. “Job security is good,” he said. “Pet ownership expands every year.” Their business is different from some others, Natalie said, because the pet stays in its own home and either Natalie or Rob makes frequent visits to the home. “The goal is to keep the pet on its regular schedule to reduce stress,” she said. They learned that from personal experience. Several years ago, they boarded their Basset Hound, Petey. When they returned home, they learned their furry family member became so stressed out he had to be medicated. “We did not know,” she said. “They never called us.” This inspired them to open their own pet sitting business. Services cover everything from caring for cats and little critters to frequent visits to care and play with puppies and walk dogs. Prices range from $12 to $75 based on time requirements.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS COMPANY: Ruby Slipper Pet-Sitting Agency OWNERS: Rob and Natalie Sinex SERVING: Pet owners in the Back Mountain, Kingston, Wilkes-Barre, Nanticoke and surrounding communities. CONTACT: 371-7854 or

Natalie said a report card is provided for the owners, stating when the visits occurred, if a treat was given, and if a “number 1 or number 2 was done.” “Texting is available for the nervous pet owner,” she said. Natalie said their services are available to the busy family or business person who might need someone to simply walk his or her dog during the day. Filled with compassion for pets of the furry, feathered and scaly variety, both take their endeavor seriously. Natalie said they are both bonded, insured members of the Professional Unit Pet Sitters Association, and are certified in pet first aid from the American Red Cross in Allentown.

photo film fading fast

Purchases of film cameras have tumbled from 19.7 million in 2000 to 280,000 in 2009. By BEN DOBBIN Associated Press

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — At Image City Photography Gallery, Gary Thompson delights in pointing out qualities of light, contrast and clarity in one of his best-selling prints — a winter-sunset view of Yosemite National Park’s El Capitan peak shot with a hefty Pentax film camera he bought in 1999 for $1,700. His wife, Phyllis, 70, a latecomer to fine-art photography after they retired from teaching in the 1990s, favors a Has- “If I extraselblad X-Pan for panoramic land- polate the scapes, such as a trend for time-lapse shot of a harbor in Nova Sco- film sales tia. and retireOf 11 partners and ments of resident artists at the private gallery in film camRochester — the eras, it western New York city where George looks like Eastman trans- film will be formed photography from an arcane hob- mostly by into a mass com- gone in the modity with his $1 Brownie in 1900 — U.S. by the the Thompsons are end of the the only ones left who haven’t decade.” switched to filmless Ed Lee InfoTrends digital cameras. But that time may imaging analyst be near. At the turn of the 21st century, American shutterbugs were buying close to a billion rolls of film per year. This year, they might buy a mere 20 million, plus 31 million single-use cameras, according to the Photo Marketing Association. By 1999, more than 800 million rolls were sold in the United States alone. The next year marked the apex for combined U.S. sales of rolls of film (upward of 786 million) and singleuse cameras (162 million). Domestic purchases of film cameras have tumbled from 19.7 million cameras in 2000 to 280,000 in 2009 and might dip below 100,000 this year, says Yukihiko Matsumoto, the association’s chief researcher. For InfoTrends imaging analyst Ed Lee, film’s fade-out is moving sharply into focus: “If I extrapolate the trend for film sales and retirements of film cameras, it looks like film will be mostly gone in the U.S. by the end of the decade.” Just who are the die-hards, holdouts and hangers-on? Among those who still rely on film — at least part of the time — are advanced amateurs and a smattering of professionals, market surveys show. Regular point-and-shoot adherents who haven’t made the switch tend be poorer or older — 55 and up.

Test-driving the new Droid-powered Charge by Samsung I HAD THE GOOD fortune to receive a Samsung Charge in the mail today. The Charge is Samsung’s most recent Android-powered release to Verizon, and its first 4G phone on that network. The Charge continues a trend I’ve noticed of late: the “mini-war” among HTC, Samsung and LG in the high-end smartphone arena. Pushing sales is all well and good, but it can leave consumers a bit befuddled. Basically, one of the manufacturers, usually HTC, sometimes Samsung, will release a phone that pushes the envelope in terms of specs. Then the other manufacturers will immediately launch devices with comparable specifications and prices, leaving consumers to choose based purely on aesthetics and (in some cases) interface. First let’s talk about the Charge. On

It’s arguably more approachable than the LG or HTC. It’s definitely more stylish.

The Memorial Day weekend may be over, but the sultry temperatures remain. The area of high pressure responsible for the flow of warm air continues to drift across the southeastern part of the U.S. There is a weak cold front that will try and deliver less-humid air later on during the day, but it may spark a sprinkle or light shower. Many areas will remain dry with temperatures in the lower 90s. A better chance for showers and storms tomorrow as a stronger cold front shifts in from the west. Temperatures may still be in the upper 80s before the rain arrives. Expect cooler conditions for later in the week.

Chase Brown, 14, of Mission Viejo, Calif., has fragile X, a developmental disability and is taking a drug considered promising in reversing its effects. His mother, Heather Brown, top, is hopeful that the drug, Minocycline, will help her son and said Chase’s condition, so far, has improved.

RAY OF HOPE New treatments target children with fragile X syndrome

By MELISSA HEALY Los Angeles Times

Slouched sideways at his desk in the front row of class, a sneakered foot jittering distractedly, Chase Brown could be any 14-year-old in academic captivity. As the discussion turns to the American history of slavery, the teacher draws Chase back from his apparent reverie. A classmate has said that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. Does Chase agree or disagree? Chase locks eyes with his teacher. “I

agree,” he says emphatically. It is a moment of triumph for Chase, one of an estimated 90,000 in the U.S. who live with an inherited form of intellectual disability known as fragile X syndrome. Only a year ago, he would have fled the classroom, thrown something at the teacher or stayed mute. Last year, he tested below first-grade level in all academic domains. Impulsive, distracted and quick to boil over, he seemed incapable of learning.

Plagued by cold sore stigma By ALEXIA ELEJALDE-RUIZ Chicago Tribune

people get infected with HSV-1 as kids, from kissy adults. “It is one of the most common viral infections, and yet you’re a pariah,” said Dr. Adam Friedman, director of dermatologic research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University in New York. “People look at you like you’re a leper.” About 70 percent of Americans are infected with HSV-1,

For such a ubiquitous affliction, cold sores can be mighty shaming. In addition to the indignity of wearing a bulging, weepy blister on your lip, sufferers also must contend with the stigma of its source: HSV-1, a type of herpes simplex virus. But unlike HSV-2, the virus that usually causes genital herpes, cold sores are not usually sexually transmitted (though they can be). Most See SORE, Page 5C

This year, he can sit in a classroom for half an hour before needing a “sensory break”: a walk around the parking lot to clear his over-stimulated brain. He is reading at a fourth-grade level, following class discussions, looking teachers squarely in the eyes and answering questions.

Q: I recently heard about a study that says antihistamines like Zyrtec and Benadryl can cause weight gain. I have allergies all year long and wonder if the 15 pounds I’ve gained over the past year may be due to that. — J.W., Huntsville, Ala. A: An observational study published in the August 2010 issue of the journal Obesity found that of the roughly 900 folks studied, those taking antihistamines were more likely to be overweight or obese than those not taking antihistamines. We do know that one of the older antihistamines, Periactin (cyproheptadine), is an appetite stimulant and has been used as such. We also have seen that for a small percentage of people, antihistamines can increase appetite. At the same time, we also see many folks who take antihistamines — especially the newer ones such as Claritin, Allegra and Zyrtec — with no reported One has to weight gain. balance the For those who huge benefit of have allergies all symptomatic year long, allergy desensitization relief from shots may be a allergies helpful long-term against a small strategy.

In the end, one has to balance the huge benefit of symptomatic relief from allergies against a small potential risk of weight gain. Q: Several years ago, I was diagnosed with “BOOP” -- Bronchiolitis Obliterans Organizing Pneumonia. I was placed on a prednisone taper over 10 months. My doctor says they don’t know what causes BOOP. Can tell me more about my illness? — J.S., Tarrytown, N.Y. A: The term “pneumonia” is a broad term that refers to inflammation of the lung tissue which may be from a bacterial, viral, fungal or, in the case of BOOP, some known or unknown cause. BOOP on chest x-ray usually shows a patchy pneumonia process involving both lungs. The typical person with BOOP will have a gradual onset of dry cough, fever, malaise and shortness of breath. Multiple courses of antibiotics are usually tried without any improvement in how the patient feels or in the chest x-ray appearance. To know for sure that someone has BOOP, an open lung biopsy is necessary to get a sample of lung tissue. The treatment of choice for BOOP is a slow steroid taper over many months. In folks like you treated for about a year, one-third will relapse. One or two more rounds of steroids will usually treat BOOP successfully. While BOOP may be caused by certain medications, toxic fumes, radiation therapy to the chest, or independently in folks with rheumatoid arthritis or any of the connective tissue disorders (e.g.- lupus), perhaps 80 percent of folks develop BOOP without a known cause. Fortunately, BOOP is rather rare. Dr. Mitchell Hecht is a physician specializing in internal medicine. Send questions to him at: “Ask Dr. H,” P.O. Box 767787, Atlanta, Ga. 30076.

4 Rittenhouse Place Drums, PA 18222 570-401-6013

Owner: Stephane Cloud ISSA Certified Personal Trainer

Just recently I joined another local gym, CLOUD9 PERSONAL TRAINING, in Drums. I joined for the same reasons, flexibility, cardio and weight loss. It has been about 90 days and I am more flexible, my cardio is better and my confidence and strength are improving daily. I am still working out about 1-1 1/2 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. 90 days is about 1/4 of a year. So based on my prior experience, I should have lost a 1/4 of a pound but I haven’t. I’ve lost 20lbs! You read it right, 20LBS. Anything worth having is worth working for..... So stop playing around. Get serious. Stop in and see what Cloud9 has to offer. I know what a difference it has made for me.

Anything Worth Having is Worth Working For.... Several years ago, I joined a local gym. I worked out for 1-1 1/2 hours, 5-6 days a week. When the year was over, I felt more flexible and my cardio improved. I joined to improve those but I had also joined to lose weight and I did! One whole pound, you read it right - One WHOLE POUND in a year.

Lesions could be sign of immune system disorder BRANDY IS A 4-year-old Springer spaniel with red, round blotches on her belly. David noticed them a week ago, and they have appeared in greater numbers over the past day or two. They are not apparently painful for Brandy, but David realizes something is going on. There is a laundry list of possibilities that might be causing the lesions, but one in particular comes to mind that can be very serious. I want to concentrate on that one while at the same time urging David to get Brandy to her veterinarian’s office now. Autoimmune thrombocytopenia, or AITP, is an immune system disorder related to the production of antibodies against platelets. Incidentally, spaniels are a high-incidence breed for this disease. Platelets are specialized white blood cells that are produced in the bone marrow and are responsible for starting blood clot formation when necessary. When a bleeding incident occurs, platelets will aggregate in that location and begin the clot formation that results in cessation of the bleeding. In a dog with autoimmune thrombocytopenia, this platelet aggregation can be missing because of the

YOUR PET BY JEFF KAHLER, D.V.M. destruction of the circulating platelets by the immune system and, as a result, the dog can bleed uncontrollably. This can result, as you might imagine, in death. There are signs of AITP that occur early in the course of the disease, and Brandy may be showing one of them. The lesions that David described on Brandy’s abdomen may be subcutaneous hemorrhages or bruising, which can result from only the slightest of tissue impact in patients with AITP. If there is greater trauma, these patients can bleed without stopping. This is why I want Brandy to see her veterinarian now. AITP can be tentatively diagnosed with a simple blood test. We treat this disease by suppressing the immune response against the platelets so that these cells can survive and perform their very vital function. The earlier we catch the disease, the better the prognosis for recovery.








HOPE Continued from Page 1C

Chlamydia — Chase is learning. Minocycline, the medication Chase has been taking for almost eight months, is one of several drugs that might correct — even reverse — many of the brain perturbations of fragile X and several other developmental disorders, including autism. The medications are still far from proven: Large-scale trials may take several years to complete. But if they live up to their promise without dangerous side effects, they could accomplish what no medication has been able to: cure a genetically based intellectual disability. Last year, Chase was among the first 50 children and adults with fragile X to take the drug as an experimental treatment. Since then, said his mother, Heather Brown, he has changed in ways she hadn’t thought possible. He has developed the ability to chat: share details of his day, make thoughtful observations and inquiries, and respond with apparent understanding, even empathy. His explosions of kicking, hitting and object hurling, and the terrible remorse that followed, have vanished. It’s not sedation: She saw that beforewhenChasecycledthrough a list of powerful antipsychotic medications. He seems instead to be learning new ways to behave.


Last year, Chase Brown was among the first 50 children and adults with fragile X to take Minocycline as an experimental treatment. Since then, said his mother, Heather Brown, he has changed in ways she hadn’t thought possible.

“It’s life-changing, it really is,” said Brown, who lives in Mission Viejo, Calif., with Chase and his stepfather. “I was, like, ‘Minocycline? They use that for acne.’” The condition that Chase was born with is caused by an abnormal elongation of a portion of DNA on the X chromosome. It is the most common inherited intellectual disability worldwide, affecting one in about 4,000 babies. It causes some cases of autism. Depending on the extent of the error, a child with fragile X can range from nonverbal to having communications skills that are mildly impaired. Epilepsy is common. Short-term memory deficits and very short attention spans can short-circuit academic progress. It can seem like a train wreck of conditions — autism, attention deficit, bipolar disorder, anxiety and more — rolled into a single

kid. Yet now there’s some genuine muscle pulling on the hope side of the equation, thanks to a confluence of parental activism, advances in brain science and luck. “People haven’t thought about what it would be like to reverse intellectual disability or mental retardation,” says Dr. Randi Hagerman, medical director of University of California-Davis’ MIND Institute, who ran the minocycline study in which Chase was enrolled. “We now think it may be possible.” It’s a goal as controversial as it is ambitious. For decades, activists and parents championed for inclusion for those with what was until recently called “mental retardation” (the preferred term now is “intellectual” or “developmental disability”). Somewhere along the way,

many came to reject the idea that a “cure” was needed, or desirable. To suggest that intellectual disability is an illness crying out for a fix devalues and stigmatizes these children, they contended. Advances in biomedical research have already begun putting that conviction to the test for families of those with Down syndrome. In 2009, researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine and Packard Children’s Hospital announced “a ray of hope” for those born with the condition. Working with mice bred to have the equivalent genetic error, they identified a faulty brain mechanism that disrupts the laying down of certain memories and, in turn, learning. They also found that a readily available drug cocktail that boosts the brain chemical norepinephrine could compensate for the problem, enabling the mice to learn normally. With early use, the scientists suggested, such a drug might put a child born with Down syndrome on a normal cognitive trajectory. Notallparentshailedthis“rayof hope.” Reacting to the news on a blog called Contrarian, Jenn Power, a Canadian mother of twin boys with Down syndrome, echoed the views of many who have been active in promoting the rights of those with intellectual disabilities. “They do not need a needle in their brain to make them more functional, to help them find their car keys,” she wrote. “What they need is a society that values what they have to offer.”

such as acyclovir (Zovirax) or valacyclovir (Valtrex) can reduce healing time or prevent a blister from forming at all, clinical trials have shown. It’s best to attack during the “prodrome” stage, when many people feel tingling or itching at the infection site, or have flulike symptoms, before a blister appears. Friedman suggests applying ice at the first hint of a cold sore, holding it against the infected site for no more than 15 minutes, to reduce swelling. You might also soak a cotton ball in whole milk and hold it against the sore for 10 to 15 minutes daily, Friedman said. Milk contains the protein monocaprin, which can halt HSV-1. Finally, cover a blister with a thick emollient such as petroleum jelly to speed healing and protect the wound from bacteria, Friedman said.

munocompromised people, causing death or neurological damage — for the most part “the worst part about (HSV-1) is probably the social stigma,” Friedman said. Though the virus is most contagious during an outbreak, when the virus is “shedding,” it’s also possible to transmit when no outbreak is visible. According to a study published in 2008 in an oral medicine journal, at least 70 percent of people with HSV-1 shed asymptomatically at least once a month. Friedman recommends keeping your mouth away from others when you feel a cold sore coming, during the outbreak and for a few days after it goes away. That includes oral sex, as HSV-1 can be transmitted from mouth to genitals (HSV-2 also can be transmitted from genitals to mouth). Taking prescription antivirals

but just a third of those infected have cold sore outbreaks, said Bryan Cullen, professor in the department of molecular genetics and microbiology at Duke University Medical Center. Genetics likely separates the lucky from the unlucky, he said. The hardy virus, which stays in your body your whole life, survives by moving up the sensory nerves after initial infection and vacationing in nerve bundles, where immune cells can’t find and destroy it. Triggers such as stress, fatigue, sun exposure, picking at your lip or having a cold or the flu can reactivate some infected cells, which travel back to the initial infection site to cause a new outbreak. There is no cure. Cullen and fellow researchers hope to find a way to disrupt the processes that keep the virus latent, so that they can coax it out of hiding all at once and ambush it with medication. But they’re not close to clinical trials, Cullen said. HSV-1 has been implicated in a number of diseases, including Alzheimer’s, though that link is disputed. Though there are rare cases of severe complications from HSV-1 — such as when the virus spreads to the brain in im-

Lonely mother-in-law suffers the consequence of her critical past Dear Abby: My wife is a wonderful woman who did a great job of rearing our large family, but our house was often too cluttered to suit my mother who, in those years, was judgmental and critical of my wife. Years later, things have changed. My father passed away, the kids are grown and gone, and my mother is growing more lonely and needy every day. She now wants to spend time with us, but because she never developed a close friendship with my wife, my wife tolerates her but doesn’t welcome her. I love them both, but I’m becoming frustrated having to constantly

DEAR ABBY ADVICE choose and juggle schedules so I can keep Mom’s feelings from getting hurt. Abby, please tell mothers-in-law to build bridges while they can. But any advice for me? — Spread Thin in Oklahoma Dear Spread Thin: Your cautionary tale deserves space in my column. When your wife joined the family, instead of building bridges, your mother dynamited them. It’s not surprising your wife feels the way she does at the prospect of spending time with her mother-in-law. Of course, while some degree of compromise is


necessary, your mother should also be encouraged to find activities and contemporaries whose company she can enjoy without expecting you to entertain her. Dear Abby: I’m a woman in my mid40s. Over the years I have diligently exercised, eaten right and taken good care of my skin. I keep my hairstyle and clothing up-to-date. I am constantly taken to be much younger than I am. While some of my peers may be jealous of this “problem,” I find it extremely annoying. It’s especially bothersome in a business situation when someone my age or slightly older treats me as though he/ she could be my parent. I am not inclined to broadcast my age. Is there a professional way


to deal with their condescending attitude? — Looks Younger, But Isn’t Dear Looks Younger: Yes. First, take the chip off your shoulder. Then recognize that your colleagues may not be condescending; they may be trying to be helpful. Accept the suggestions they offer without becoming defensive. The more of themselves these “mentors” invest in you, the happier they’ll be about your successes. Dear Abby: My husband of almost a year and I have discovered a great technique to avoid screaming at each other. When we get aggravated with each other, one of us goes to the refrigerator, takes out one of our favorite candy bars and we split it. By the

time we’re done eating the candy, we can calmly discuss our disagreement. This helps because we literally take a break from the situation and share a mutual joy. It works because we both love chocolate so much. We wanted to share this solution with your readers. — Sweet Tooth in Angleton, Texas Dear Sweet Tooth: Ingenious. The two of you have discovered yet another reason why chocolate is good for the heart. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Over the course of a day, the job before you goes from being pleasant to tolerable to tedious. To avoid turning into a grump, take some time to play. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Exercise helps you blow off steam. When you return to the day’s work, you’ll manage your frustration level better and remain in control of even the trickiest situation. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone is doing what you want to do in a way you hadn’t thought of until this living example revealed itself to you. You’ll be emboldened by what you learn. CANCER (June 22-July 22). As the first water sign of the zodiac, you have a tendency to let your emotions steam, boil, flow or freeze according to the climate around you. Today the hand that guides the thermostat is yours. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes work can be a grind, but today you’ll get paid to do something you love, and the exchange deserves some kind of celebration. Remember when this was all a faraway dream to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Overthinking is a danger now, so make a plan, and then move through it quickly and with certainty. Leave no room for doubt, and your interaction will be graceful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will get rid of the attitudes that are holding you back. A ritual will help you make this a lasting change. Something ordinary, like washing your hair, will have spiritual significance.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are vulnerable to critical people now. But not all criticism is negative. In fact, you’ll probably hear the specific words you need to know in order to make immense improvements to your work. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You socialize for fun, but you also see it as a job, which it is. Deals will get made during happy hour. You may be smiling and laid-back, but you’re out there promoting your business at the same time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Others want to know your secret, but it’s not something you can share. This is mostly because it comes so naturally to you that you don’t know how you do it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll do some work on your image, making certain enhancements that keep you intriguing and appealing. This might include updating your technical skills. Image is, after all, more than skin deep. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are so many people who are trying to do what you already do so well. You really are doing the world a disservice unless you share what you know. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 31). Your domestic needs will coincide nicely with other aspirations. You will attract supportive people and also competitors who push you to be your best. There is some restlessness around July, and you’re likely to take off on spur-of-the-moment adventures. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 38,14, 30, 5 and 1.
