Slain teen’s friend cuffed Action follows closed hearing on fatality By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

KINGS 2, DEVILS 1 Anze Kopitar scored a

spectacular goal on a breakaway with 11:47 left in overtime Wednesday night and the Los Angeles Kings beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Kopitar faked a backhand shot, put the puck on his forehand and beat a prone Martin Brodeur. Los Angeles has won all nine of its road games in the playoffs. Colin Fraser scored in the first period for the Kings, the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference who beat the top three teams to get to their first Stanley Cup Finals since 1993. 1B

WILKES-BARRE – A young teen was led away in handcuffs after a closed-door hearing Wednesday afternoon tied to the fatal shooting last month of his friend, 14year-old Tyler Winstead. The boy, Elijah Yusiff, was escorted by county juvenile probation officers from the courthouse into a waiting vehicle. No charges have been filed in the case and the reason for court proceeding could not be determined. Tyler, of 121 Hill St., Wilkes-Barre, was

found shot April 5 in front of 117 Hill St., where Yusiff resided. “Because of his (Yusiff’s) age and because of the nature of the charges, we can’t explain what’s going on,” county District Tyler Winstead Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said. “The judge must seal the record and make the hearings closed (to the public). I can’t say any more by law.” The hearing began shortly before 4 p.m. and included Salavantis, First Assistant

District Attorney Samuel Sanguedolce, assistant district attorneys Michelle Hardik and Mamie Phillips, and attorneys Demetrius Fannick and Cheryl Sobeski Reedy, members of the juvenile probation department. County Detective Michael Dessoye also attended. Yusiff was being held in a separate courtroom. According to state law, “The court may temporarily exclude the child from the hearing except while allegations of his deSee SHOOTING, Page 10A

Getting up-close lesson in life West Side CTC students tackle jobs at the Lands at Hillside Farms. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

KINGSTON TWP. – Watching a cow give birth was not on the “to do” list when West Side Career and Technology Center students started repair and upgrade work at the Lands at Hillside Farm, but it became part of the real-world experience for some machine students who happened to be in the barn when the bovine’s water broke. “It was disgusting,” junior John Mleczynski recounted, adding that despite the unpleasantness, he recorded it on a classmate’s cellphone. Students have been visiting the farm regularly for months, thanks to a $10,000 grant from Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation. The work for

A firefighter heads up a ladder as fire rips through the roof of a home at 86-88Green St. in Edwardsville on Wednesday afternoon.

UP IN SMOKE, FLAMES By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

EDWARDSVILLE – Brenda Naugle was cleaning her backyard pool early Wednesday afternoon when she heard her neighbors yelling out front. Naugle ran around the house with her dog, Ruby, in tow to see smoke and flames pouring from her two-unit building at 86-88 Green St. Within minutes, fire was raging through her home and her daughter’s (Michelle) apartment. As firefighters arrived, Naugle watched the blaze build, devouring her possessions. She cried as she wondered if all of her cats had made it out of the inferno. “I saw people looking at the front of my house,” she said. “I saw black smoke and I ran to let my animals out.” Edwardsville Fire Chief Ray King said the cause was a short in an extension cord connected to

In a few minutes the flames were on the second floor.” Curious onlookers lined up along Green Street to watch firefighters battle the blaze. Some helped volunteers hand out water to the firefighters.

Planned inspection POLICE BLOTTER shuts down reactor SALEM TWP. – The Unit 2 reactor at the PPL Susquehanna nuclear power plant shut down Wednesday for a planned inspection of its turbine, the plant operator said. Workers will check for indications of cracking in the unit’s lowpressure turbine, following the discovery of cracks during recent inspections of Unit 1. Unit 1 has been shut down. Preparations to restart it soon are under way. The cracks on Unit 1 were similar to but less extensive than those found and repaired on both units last year, the operator said. As part of the inspection, workers will install additional diagnostic equipment on the Unit 2 turbine to complement equipment installed last year. The additional data will be used to validate the suspected causes of blade cracking under review by engineers at the plant. The turbine work is not expected to lower PPL Corp.’s 2012 forecast of $2.15 to $2.45 per share in earnings from ongoing operations. PPL Susquehanna LLC, a generating affiliate of PPL Corp., and Allegheny Electric Cooperative Inc. jointly own the plant. PPL Susquehanna operates it.

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A Nanticoke man who police say was on school grounds with a loaded gun was entered into the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program for one year. Richard Crespo, 41, of East Church Street, was entered into the program by Judge Fred Pierantoni on a charge of possessing a weapon on school property. Pierantoni said Crespo must also complete 15 hours of community service. If Crespo successfully completes all the terms of the program, the charge will be expunged from his criminal record. According to court papers, on Sept. 16 Greater Nanticoke Area School District Police Officer Michael Wisinewski contacted city police to report a man on school property with a firearm, and that he was sitting in a van parked near John F. Kennedy Elementary School. Crespo told police he carries the gun with him all the time and it is “a part of him,” and sometimes he doesn’t even realize he has it with him. Crespo’s attorney, Tom Cometa, said Tuesday they do not dispute the facts, and that he was at the school to pick up his child, forgot the gun was on him, and fully cooperated with police.

Obama office set to open

“Organizing for America Pennsylvania” volunteers, staff, local elected officials and community leaders will open a new field office in Wilkes-Barre at 70 S. Main St. to support President Obama in November. The field office will serve as the community hub for the organization’s activities in the area, where volunteers remain focused on reaching out to their neighbors to talk about the president’s record of progress, according to a statement from the campaign.. The office will hold an opening ceremony today at 6 p.m.

By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

The first complaint has been filed under Luzerne County’s new ethics code, and it alleges a violation by the entire 11person county council. The county manager’s office notified council members of the complaint Wednesday but did not supply details. The complaint has been forwarded to the county’s Accountability, Conduct and Ethics Commission for review. The commission will complete the initial review within 30 days and inform council whether the complaint will go forward, the manager’s office told council. County Manager Robert Lawton, Controller Walter Griffith, District At-

torney Stefanie Salavantis and citizens Vito Forlenza and Margaret Hogan serve on the commission. The commission keeps details of complaints confidential, including the names of the filers and the allegations. Two sources familiar with the filer said the complaint primarily alleges county council is violating the new county personnel code in the selection of the permanent council clerk. The home rule charter says council should adhere to the personnel code in the appointment of a clerk. The council-adopted personnel code, which took effect May 10, says the county human resources department and appropriate hiring manager rate and rank

applicants based on pre-established knowledge, skill and ability benchmarks. The hiring manager is the division head overseeing the prospective employee, the code says. It doesn’t specify a hiring manager for the clerk, who works for the entire council. To the extent feasible, the identity of applicants should be shielded from examiners until the rankings have been completed, the code says. The human resources department must certify a list of candidates receiving the highest rankings to the hiring manager, and the hiring manager then selects one of the three top-rated candidates to fill the position.

Reyes ran away and pulled out a handgun during the chase. He discarded the gun Reyes near a fence he jumped over behind 151 Wood St. Police said the stolen weapon was fully loaded with a round in its chamber. Reyes was arraigned in WilkesBarre Central Court on charges of receiving stolen property, illegal possession of a handgun, firearms not to be carried without a license, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail. WILKES-BARRE

Jersey man facing court

A New Jersey man with ties to the Bloods street gang waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday on charges he shot a rival Crips gang associate in the face outside a nightclub nearly two years ago. Luzerne County prosecutors withdrew the most serious charge, criminal attempt to commit Johnson homicide, against Jerayme Johnson, 26, in addition to charges of aggravated assault and firearms not to be carried without a license. Johnson, of Newark, waived a second aggravated assault charge and a firearms violation to county court. He remains jailed at the county correctional facility for lack of $500,000 bail. Attorney Ferris Webby is representing Johnson.

The list of the next three top applicants is supplied if none of the first three is chosen, the code says. County council members opted to handle the review and ranking of more than 90 applications based on applicants’ education, relevant experience, awareness of legislative/government operations and communication, organizational and technology skills. Council plans to interview roughly 10 who received the highest rankings. The ethics code, which took effect last week, allows people to report misconduct by county employees and officials. If the evidence leans toward a possible violation, the commission must issue a findings report and allow the accused an opportunity to respond and admit or deny the allegations. The person or people under investigation may request a hearing.

He was charged in Texas with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and jailed at the Coryell Edmonds County Jail for lack of $500,000 bail, according to a Copperas Cove police news release. Copperas police identified Edmonds as a transient. Hanover Township police obtained an arrest warrant for Edmonds last week charging him with breaking into a house on Front Street and stealing two safes, jewelry and money in April, according to a township police news release. Luzerne County Court records say Edmonds was sentenced by a judge on Nov. 9 to one to six months in jail for his role in a burglary at the Cabaret Lounge, an adult night club on Market Street, Kingston, on Aug. 3, 2010. Kingston police got a break in the investigation when they recovered a movie ticket stub left inside the night club, according to arrest records. Edmonds was admitted to the county’s treatment court but was removed when he violated conditions of the program, court records say.

Health trust sues to keep LL in

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The Northeastern Pennsylvania School Districts Health Trust on Tuesday filed a lawsuit in county court attempting to prevent the Lake-Lehman School District from withdrawing from the insurancebuying consortium. Earlier this month, the school district proposed removing itself from the trust’s medical and prescription drug programs in favor of a selffunded plan that could save the district about $1 million a year. The district would continue to obtain dental and vision benefits through the trust. The district had been denied complete resignation from the trust, which cited a one-year notice requirement. According to the lawsuit filed Tuesday by attorney Scott

EMPLOYEE UNIONS FIGHT WITHDRAWAL

According to court records, the Lake-Lehman Education Association and Lake-Lehman Educational Support Personnel Association filed grievances with the school district, disagreeing with the decision to withdraw from the health trust. On May 17 in county court, the two associations filed an application for preliminary injunction seeking to prevent the district from withdrawing from the health trust. Judge David Lupas denied a motion for preliminary injunction without a hearing and scheduled a hearing date for June 6.

Gartley, who represents the health trust with Koff, Mangan, Vullo & Gartley P.C., the trust received a letter dated May 15, notifying it that the district would withdraw from medical and prescription drug programs effective June 30, 2012. In a separate letter also dated May 15, the district said effective June 30, 2013, it would withdraw from dental and vision programs. “The trust notified (the school district) that it will be a

violation of the trust agreement if (the school district) withdraws from the health trust’s medical and prescription drug programs without providing the required minimum of 12 months …,” the suit says. The medical and prescription drug programs account for 95 percent of the district’s total contribution to the trust, the suit says. Since 2002, the suit says, the See HEALTH, Page 4A

KINGSTON – Wyoming Valley West School Board on Wednesday approved a preliminary budget that includes a 2.4 percent property tax increase. The board has until June 30 to approve a final budget and can change the proposal before then. Under the proposal, property taxes would rise from 13.5 mills to about 13.824 mills. A mill is a $1 tax on every $1,000 of assessed value. Business Manager Joe Rodriguez said the average assessed home value in the district is about $91,000, so the increase would equal less than $30 a year. Superintendent Chuck Suppon noted he had asked all building principals to cut spending by 10 percent, and that four retiring teachers would not be replaced. A custodian or other support staff worker may be furloughed as well. Rodriguez estimated savings from those cuts at $350,000. Despite the cuts, total spending rises from $59.6 million this year to $63.3 million. Rodriguez blamed big-ticket items: a 9 percent increase in insurance premiums adding $1.04 million to the budget, a large increase in state-set contributions to the

retirement fund adding about $1.1 million, and a “much needed” $28 million expansion of State Street Elementary, with $1.15 million of that due next year. The preliminary budget uses $816,000 of reserve money, bringing the fund balance down to about $7 million, Rodriguez said. He also noted the district has received approval from the state to increase taxes as much as 4 percent, but the board opted not to do that. The board also heard from senior Francesca Colella, Pringle, who criticized a policy barring seniors from winning school awards – which often include scholarship money – if they miss more than 10 days of school. Colella argued that she had done a great deal of work on the school newspaper, become editor-in-chief this year, and that she often did more work than many other students, yet was disqualified from a school journalism award because she exceeded that limit. Asked how many days she missed, Colella said she felt it was personal information, but that it was “about 30.” Colella also said some students who exceeded the absentee limit won awards, a claim disputed by Board Member Thomas Pieczynski

Access Card fraud cases found in probe

Edwards jury deliberating as note is studied

Luzerne County has 16 cases out of 653 statewide. Nearly $1 million is saved.

By DAVID ZUCCHINO Los Angeles Times

GREENSBORO, N.C. — An eighth day of jury deliberations in the John Edwards trial passed without a verdict Wednesday, but not without several episodes of drama that played out behind closed doors. After receiving a note from a juror, U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Eagles cleared the courtroom, twice, to confer privately with prosecutors and defense lawyers. Eagles provided no details, and defense lawyers and the court clerk declined to comment after jurors went home for the day. The same issue also prompted the judge to meet twice in her chambers with the lawyers. “We’ve been dealing with a note from one of the regular jurors,” Eagles said in court. After a long day of uncertainty on the part of journalists and spectators about whether the trial was nearing an end, Eagles told the four alternate jurors that they were free to “go on with your lives” and would no longer be required to spend their days sequestered at the courthouse. Marcellus McRae, a former federal prosecutor in Los Angeles who has taught trial advocacy at Harvard Law School, said sending alternates home could mean the judge believes jurors are making progress toward a verdict — or that they are close to declaring an impasse.

We made amazing friends and lasting memories.” Bambera offered closing remarks and a final blessing to the students. “You’ve been given all you need to go forth and build a better world,” he said. “Recognize your gifts and use them wisely and generously.”

After tracking suspicious use and data analysis, the state conducted its first investigation of out-of-state Access Card fraud. The results rendered 653 cases statewide, 16 in Luzerne County and savings of nearly $1 million in Pennsylvania taxpayers’ money. Each individual has been removed from the program. The state Department of Public Welfare then turned suspected violators in to the Office of Inspector General to determine an outcome for their alleged scams. As of yet, no one has been criminally charged, spokeswoman Melissa Yerges of the Inspector General’s Office said Wednesday. Beginning in February, public welfare began a monthly residency review of those who completed electronic benefit transactions in states non-contiguous to Pennsylvania. While using Access Cards out of state is not illegal, frequent use was a red flag that users were no longer Pennsylvania residents. The next step is to investigate cards being used in New York and New Jersey for fraud. Electronic cards are the pri-

mary method used to issue public assistance benefits to eligible Pennsylvania residents. These benefits range from cash assistance, to supplemental nutrition (food stamps) and medical assistance. To obtain benefits, as mandated by state and federal law, an applicant must provide documentation proving lawful U.S. citizenship through a birth certificate, a driver’s license or a Social Security number. The department then checks client information against instate, out-of-state and national databases. The public welfare analysis found 76 percent of the people fraudulently collecting Pennsylvania benefits while living in another state were using the food stamp program. Additionally, 24 percent of those living outside Pennsylvania were collecting other types of benefits such as cash assistance, medical assistance or a combination of the three. “The department’s review of out-of-state welfare spending will soon expand to neighboring states and we will conduct targeted reviews anywhere we see an inconsistency. We will leave no stone unturned when it comes to rooting out fraud, waste and abuse,” said Gary D. Alexander, secretary of the Department of Public Welfare. This border state review could net more fraudulent cases locally, official said.

An insurgent attack and a homemade bomb killed two NATO service members Wednesday in southern Afghanistan, the coalition said. The deaths raised the number of coalition troops who have died in Afghanistan this year to 174. The coalition did not provide further details about the attacks. Southern Afghanistan is the traditional heartland of the Taliban and has been the deadliest place for foreign forces since the Afghan war started in 2001. The U.S. poured tens of thousands of additional troops into the south in 2009 and 2010 in an attempt to reverse the Taliban’s momentum. LONDON

Whistle-blower loses appeal

Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, the whistle-blowing website, lost his appeal Wednesday in the highest British Court against extradition to Sweden on rape and sexual molestation charges. Assange did not attend the 10-minute judgment passed down by British Supreme Court, where dozens of supporters waving placards in support for his cause stood outside the entrance. Dinah Rose, Assange’s defense attorney, was given two weeks to consider the judgment and confer with her client and make a further application and possibly reopen the case on a legal point. The 40-year-old Australian-born Assange is under house arrest in eastern England in the mansion of a supporter. He denies the charges and his fight against extradition is based on the grounds that once in Sweden he could be extradited to the United States to face charges for leaking State Department documents on the Internet.

Sex offenders fighting back

Registered sex offenders who have been banned from social networking websites are fighting back in the nation’s courts, successfully challenging many of the restrictions as infringements on free speech and their right to participate in common online discussions. The legal battles pit public outrage over sex crimes against cherished guarantees of individual freedom and the far-reaching communication changes brought by Facebook, LinkedIn and dozens of other sites. Courts have long allowed states to place restrictions on convicted sex offenders who have completed their sentences. But the increasing use of social networks for everyday communication raises new, untested issues.

Houla killings occurred, although no casualties were immediately reported, activists said. Syria’s state-run media on Wednesday denounced the diplomatic expulsions as “unprecedented hysteria.”

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaks Tuesday in Las Vegas. President Barack Obama’s campaign on Wednesday was opening a new critique of Romney’s economic agenda while he served as governor of Massachusetts.

Obama congratulates Romney

By KEN THOMAS and KASIE HUNT Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama called Mitt Romney on Wednesday to congratulate him on winning the Republican nomination, just as the Democrat’s campaign opened a new critique of Romney by focusing attention on his economic record as governor of Massachusetts. The president told Romney “he looked forward to an important and healthy debate about America’s future,” Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said. Romney’s campaign said the call was “brief and cordial.” Both men wished each other’s families well during the upcoming race. Romney’s primary win in Texas on Tuesday night pushed him past the1,144delegate threshold he needed to claim the party’s nomination. Obama took the formal step of congratulating his opponent even as his team looked to shift to the Massachusetts story under Romney.

President Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House.

Romney’s campaign, meanwhile, was bringing attention to failed stimulus projects under Obama and federal money given to green energy companies like Solyndra, a solar firm that received hundreds of millions of dollars from the government only to go bankrupt.

The competing attack-lines came as Romney pivoted from a long primary slog to the Republican nomination and a new summertime window to sway voters who have not yet fully tuned into the presidential campaign. Romney hopes to present himself as a worthy replacement for Obama who can help revitalize a slow-moving economy, the most important issue for voters. For months, Obama and his allies have signaled plans to target Romney’s Massachusetts record, with advisers noting that the state’s economy lagged in job creation and saw an increase in debt while he was governor from 2003-2007. The critique will build upon a line of attack this month of Romney’s record at private equity firm Bain Capital, which Obama’s team contends led to job losses and bankrupt companies even while Bain profited. Republicans contend that Obama’s critique of the Bain record will backfire because it will give voters the impression that he is anti-business.

Sandusky trial still a go; charges debated By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

BELLEFONTE — Jerry Sandusky lost another bid to delay his child sexual abuse trial on Wednesday and, in what could be the last pretrial hearing before jury selection begins next week, the presiding judge heard defense lawyers and prosecutors debate whether charges should be thrown out. The 45-minute court hear-

ing focused on the evidence regarding so-called “Victim 8,” a young man who was reportedly seen by a janitor being molested by the former Penn State assistant football coach in team showers more than a decade ago. Prosecutors have said the janitor, Jim Calhoun, has dementia and is not available to testify, so they want to call to the stand co-workers who would recount what Calhoun told them.

Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola has argued there is not sufficient evidence to take the Victim 8 charges to trial, and at the Wednesday hearing he asked for a hearing at which prosecutors would either show he is wrong or have Cleland dismiss those counts. The same applies to charges involving two alleged victims. Amendola also has asked for the remaining charges to be dismissed on other

grounds. Frank Fina, a prosecutor with the state Attorney General’s Office, said it was difficult to make an argument that the evidence is sufficient when there isn’t any evidence in the record, because Sandusky waived his preliminary hearing. Sandusky, 68, faces 52 counts for alleged abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year period, charges he has repeatedly denied.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Former Liberian President Charles Taylor will likely spend the rest of his life in prison after a U.N.-backed court sentenced him to 50 years for aiding and abetting war crimes. Taylor, 64, is the first former head of state to be convicted by an international court for war crimes since the Nuremberg trials of Nazi leaders that followed World War II. He was found guilty of helping plan war crimes with Revolutionary Taylor United Front rebels in Sierra Leone, trading arms with them in return for socalled blood diamonds. During their 1991-2002 reign of terror, the rebels were known for amputating limbs, raping women and girls, recruiting and using child soldiers, and forcing girls and women to become sex slaves. Taylor was convicted in April on 11 counts, including terrorism, murder, rape, sexual slavery, outrages on personal dignity, conscripting child soldiers, enslavement and pillage. He will serve his prison term in Britain. Pronouncing sentence in the Special Court for Sierra Leone in The Hague, Judge Richard Lussick said Taylor had never set foot in Sierra Leone but had left a heavy footprint there. He said the effect of Taylor’s crimes on families of the victims was devastating. "The accused has been found responsible for aiding and abetting, as well as planning, some of the most heinous and brutal crimes recorded in human history," the judge said. Lussick said the court found when weighing its sentence that Taylor’s abuse of his positions as Liberia’s president and a leader of the regional Economic Community of West African States was "an aggravating factor of great weight." Another aggravating factor was his abuse of Sierra Leone for financial gain.

BEIRUT — U.N. observers have discovered 13 bound corpses in eastern Syria, many of them apparently shot execution-style, the monitoring mission said Wednesday.

Achievement recognized Area speller out

By SUSAN DENNEY Times Leader Correspondent

PLAINS TWP. – Seniors from area high schools in gowns of many colors were honored at the Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technical Center Recognition and Awards Night on Wednesday The school’s cafeteria was packed with family members and well-wishers. Principal Frank Majikes praised the 194 graduates. “Commit yourselves to become lifelong learners,” he told them. Majikes pointed out that more than 70 of the group had earned a Pennsylvania state certificate in their chosen field. This certificate is given to those students with high standardized test scores prepared by the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute. Ian Mercado was chosen as the most outstanding senior. “We have all put forth great effort. Look right and look left and congratulate your classmates,” he told fellow graduates. He also told them to appreciate the education they have received. “We had had the opportunity to actually perform the careers we have chosen,” he said. Mercado quoted Confucius, who said, “Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” Mercado is from Wilkes-Barre and is a graduating senior at Coughlin High School. Of his studies at the CTC, Mercado said, “The best part is the memories we all did together.”

Charles Karichner walks across stage excited to get his degree in Auto Body at Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technical Center’s Recognition and Awards Night Wednesday. See the special graduation section on July 7 for class photos and graduation lists.

He has enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps infantry and will leave for boot camp on July 16. Krista Mitchell is one of eight outstanding senior nominees. Mitchell, 17, is a graduating senior at Meyers High School. She said of the law enforcement program, “I got to learn a lot about the law. And we had physical fitness training, which was great. We also did security at the Kirby Center.” Mitchell has decided to go into nursing and will enter the practical nursing program at Wilkes-Barre Area CTC. Mason Ross, 18, of Mountain Top, was chosen as the Outstanding Auto Mechanics I student. The Crestwood High School student said he liked the program. “You get to do handson work.” Ross will be going on to study auto mechanics at UTI.

After the awards ceremony, Majikes said the center is constantly trying to improve and expand opportunities for students. “We’re expanding with different industries in order for students to earn industry certifications,” he said. He also explained the center has co-op agreements with area businesses and articulation agreements with many colleges. “It’s mandated that every program have an articulation agreement with post-secondary schools and colleges.” In addition to Mercado, the following students won outstanding senior awards at the ceremony: Joshua Houghtlin was chosen first runner-up; other outstanding seniors were Michael Gryskevicz, John Raggi, Maximos Ramos, Samantha Schneider, Gregory Serafin Jr. and Krista Mitchell.

OXON HILL, Md. — In his fifth and final National Spelling Bee, Nicholas Rushlow had little reason to be nervous. The 14-year-old eighth grader from Pickerington, Ohio, strutted confidently to the microphone in a preliminary round on Wednesday morning, high-fiving a fellow competitor who’d just missed a word. After greeting pronouncer Jacques Bailly and asking for the definition of “Gabbai” — a minor synagogue official — he spelled it with ease and gave a smile and a nod. Rushlow has made it to the Scripps National Spelling Bee every year since 2008, although he’s never made the finals. His best showing was a 14th-place finish last year. This is his last chance. Next year, he’ll be too old. While Rushlow was clearly at ease, the speller before him, Veto Lopez, exemplified how agonizing the competition can be. He paused for several seconds before starting to spell “blase,” then stopped even longer in the middle of the word, cracking his knuckles and glancing at the television lights above him, before misspelling it. Local entrant Devin Reed correctly spelled “pyromaniac” and “topepo” in the first two rounds. But the 12-year-old from the Drums Elementary Middle School failed to be selected as one of the 50 competitors for the semifinal round.

Coralee Ashley Tibeingana Ahabwe Wade LaRue competes.

Reed, of Drums, won the 2012 Times Leader/Scripps NEPA Regional Spelling Bee in March to compete with 277 spellers. Each had the opportunity to spell two words onstage Wednesday. Their scores were combined with a 50-word computer test they took Tuesday, and no more than 50 would advance to today’s semifinals. The finals are tonight.

The winner of the 85th Scripps National Spelling Bee gets $30,000 in cash, a trophy, a $2,500 savings bond, a $5,000 scholarship, $2,600 in reference works from the Encyclopedia Britannica and an online language course. Although spellers aren’t automatically eliminated for missing a word onstage during the preliminary rounds, it’s all but impossible to advance without getting both words right. Among those who got through the first word unscathed: 6-year-old Lori Anne Madison of Lake Ridge, Va., the youngest speller ever to qualify for the bee. She spelled “dirigible” with apparent ease after asking for the definition and hearing it used in a sentence. On the way back to her seat, she shared high-fives with several spellers.

In area state House races, incumbents winning early battle of bucks By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

MORE ONLINE

Incumbents in the three contested state House races each have a considerable financial advantage heading into the summer fundraising season. The greatest disparity is in the 120th District held by Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston. Her Phyllis Mundy for State Representative Committee ended the most recent election cycle with $51,823 in the bank Republican Aaron Kaufer, who is trying to unseat the 11-term incumbent, had $3,544 cash on hand as of May 14, the end of the third campaign cycle of 2012, also known as the 30-day post-primary report.

IN HIL MPUK CE FARM L PU D O S R P

Noticeable on the list of donors was $100 from Karen and Richard Kaufer, of Kingston. It wasn’t noticeable because of the amount but to whom the money was contributed. It wasn’t to their nephew Aaron, but to Mundy, a longtime family friend. Aaron Kaufer said he believes his aunt and uncle will be donating to his campaign as well, but the relationship between the two families goes back a long time, and it was a donation made out of “respect.” But it wasn’t strong enough to

prevent Kaufer from trying to unseat the dean of the Luzerne County delegation in the House. “This is an election about economics,” said Kaufer, who noted he has a background in global economics that will become a focal point of his campaign. While he hopes the message resonates, he agrees that he’ll need to raise more money to help get that message out. “When you’re going against a big name like hers, you need money. It is important,” Kaufer said. Another contested race is in the116th District and matches up freshman Rep. Tarah Toohil, RButler Township, against longtime Butler Township Supervisor Ransom Young, a Democrat.

PITTSTON TRAIN SHOP

Toohil, coming off one of the biggest upsets in the state two years ago when she knocked off House Majority Leader Todd Eachus, spent a lot of money on that campaign and left herself with limited resources coming into this election cycle. Her Committee to Elect Tarah Toohil had $5,788 in the bank on May 14, while the Friends of Ran-

STATE OPINION: GUN MEASURE

Felons with guns target of Pa. bill

I

T’S NOT OFTEN in Pennsylvania that a bill aimed at gun violence passes the House Judiciary Committee by a 21-3 vote, then the full House by 190-7. But that happened recently with House Bill 2331, offered by state Rep. Todd Stephens, a Montgomery County Republican. This bill is that rarest of things, a gun measure that both the gun lobby and its opponents can support. The reason for this unusual consensus is it targets previously convicted felons, who by law are barred from having guns. Surprisingly, unless a felon is committing a crime with a gun, no minimum penalty is mandated by state law, which typically allows for lenient treatment. HB 2331 closes that loophole by threatening gun-toting felons with certain and stiff consequences. Under the legislation, a felon caught with a gun would receive EDITORIAL BOARD

a five-year minimum sentence with no chance of parole. Further, it would define the unlawful activity as a “crime of violence,” triggering longer prison terms for second and third offenses. Law enforcement agencies such as the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association back the legislation. As criminals have no lobby, the bill should find favor in the Senate. But because it is the firearms equivalent of mom and apple pie, the danger of mischief lurks. The anti-gun violence group CeaseFirePA fears the bill might be amended to include obnoxious proposals such as giving groups such as the National Rifle Association standing to sue municipalities that enact ordinances against gun trafficking. Senators should pass this bill as is and not turn this moment of consensus into an act of bickering. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Together, W-B residents can make a difference

A

s a resident of Wilkes-Barre concerned about crime and violence in the city, I went to the Building Bridges meeting at Dodson Elementary in Wilkes-Barre last Thursday evening. It was the most worthwhile two hours I’ve spent in a long time, and I encourage all Wilkes-Barre residents to attend at least one of these meetings that are being held over the next few weeks. People from all over Wilkes-Barre attended and began to figure out ways to reduce youth violence, and find ways to make the city better for families and all residents. Based on the incredibly efficient and professional way this was run, and the outline for action so far defined, after the series of meetings is over, I think things will actually get done and a difference made. Great information was presented; the group sessions enabled people from different neighborhoods to sit with each other to discuss issues and begin to develop real solutions. The youths of today are the adults of the future. I believe working together we can make a difference. If you, like me and many others, care about Wilkes-Barre and don’t want to give up on it, please come to one of these meetings, and let’s make positive change happen in Wilkes-Barre. Here are the sessions, each set to begin at 7 p.m., scheduled so far: Tonight: GAR High School library. June 7: Heights Elementary School library. June 14: Coughlin High School library. June 19: Meyers High School library. Shivaun C. O’Donnell Wilkes-Barre

Leasing meters will be downturn for downtown

A

s residents of Wilkes-Barre’s downtown, we are very concerned with the selling of future parking revenues by the city. It has been only a few years since the downtown began to take on a new life. Businesses continue to open, and close. But the downtown has become a revived spot for entertainment, eating and socializing. The downtown residents have lived through many years of dark streets, cracked sidewalks and empty storefronts. It seems that just as a downtown turnaround (which we think helps the entire city) looks like it might last, we find the mayor selling us out for maybe $10 million. When the intermodal center was completed it was stressed that this would bring people to the downtown for entertainment, shopping and business. The mayor bragged that now there would be adequate parking spaces at a reasonable rate. And, yes, the need for public parking might have increased with the number of new

restaurants opening, the cinema (not everyone likes to park in garages) and events initiated by businesses. Now it is proposed by the same mayor (and his cohort J.J. Murphy) that the city lease its meters and the reasonably rated parking garages to an outside entity. This will take the city’s downtown back to 2004, only now streetlights will illuminate the empty streets and storefronts. The parking increases will only encourage people to patronize strip malls throughout the Valley and return to the Wyoming Valley Mall, where they can park for free. Who really needs to come downtown and feed meters? The use of the $20 million figure is questionable. It has been stated that an $8 million debt for the intermodal would be paid off, and the remaining money would be used for security – which implies increasing police officers’ presence. By the way, one of the best deterrents to street crime is people using the streets, interacting and enjoying the restaurants and shops. Thirty years is a very long time. The meters generate a sum that should remain an income stream for the city. If a profit of approximately $500,000 is projected for one year, then use that money to balance the city budget and use it wisely. The city promises to “work out” all the special-event parking issues. Does the parking authority know about the tradition not to put money into the meters on some of the “off streets” where tickets are rarely issued? Example: the metered spaces across from St. Mary’s Church. During any number of church services, it is typical that no meters are fed, and illegal parking occurs. Other meters are covered for funeral processions, for the Fine Arts Fiesta, etc. When the “new” parking company signs the contract, we are sure there will be constant monitoring of meters. Will there also be more ticketing, and who monitors them? If the city wants more money, why not enforce all current meter violations? But, then again, who really needs to come to downtown Wilkes-Barre? We attended a Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Association meeting last year and heard a speaker address the use of “smart” parking meters. There was a discussion about the purpose of parking meters; it was, to be sure, that there is parking available for customers of the downtown businesses. It was noted that smart meters helped in the efficient use of the meter monitor’s time. The enforcement would concentrate on areas where there were

DOONESBURY

many “overtimed” meters, thereby keeping the metered spaces rotated for general use by the public. The greatest concentration of ticketing seemingly happens on and around the King’s College and Wilkes University campuses. Easy prey for the meter men/women and lucrative for the city. Now we understand the metered areas will increase. Will smart meters be placed beyond the current “downtown” area and continue beyond North and Ross streets to assure more revenues from fines, now $10. Soon to be $20. Looks like the real reason for parking garages and meters is to line the current administration’s budget, to make these next years look good for the mayor. Let’s leave the meter money where it is. Let’s enforce the parking rules. Let’s collect on all tickets. And, let’s remember that public parking is meant to attract patrons to the downtown, not deter them from coming.

Commerce Clause needs a strict interpretation

F

or a long time progressives have distorted the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. According to the progressive interpretation, there is almost no limit on the authority of the federal government to regulate interstate commerce. This is the rationale behind the theory that the federal government even has the power to force each individual to purchase health insurance. What America needs now is a strict interpretation of the Commerce Clause. The U.S. Supreme Court generally embraced a strict interpretation of the Commerce Clause from the time of United States v. E.C. Knight Co. (1895) to the Carter v. Carter Coal Co. (1936) decision. During this period the national government was still granted a lot of power to regulate interstate commerce, but not unlimited power. Commerce was defined as activity that truly was interstate, or that at least had a direct affect on interstate commerce. The strict interpretation of the Commerce Clause was sensible, and it allowed for a reasonable balance between federal authority and state authority. By contrast, the loose interpretation currently favored by the progressives is very one-sided in favor of federal authority. This view is also extreme because it interprets the commerce authority of the federal government as having almost no limit. Forcing every American to purchase health insurance is extreme.

Poll: Legal pot not favored in California Majority OKs medicinal use of marijuana

By JOE MOZINGO Los Angeles Times (MCT)

LOS ANGELES -- In California, cradle of the marijuana movement, a new poll has found a majority of voters do not support legalization, even as they overwhelmingly back medicinal use for "patients with terminal and debilitating conditions." Eighty percent of voters support doctor-recommended use for severe illness, a University of Southern California Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll found. But only 46 percent of respondents said they support legalization of “general or recreational use by adults,” while 50 percent oppose it. Those against using pot were more adamant in their position, with 42

percent saying they felt “strongly” about it, compared with 33 percent for proponents. The survey found opinions have not measurably changed since voters defeated the legalization initiative Proposition 19 in 2010 by similar margins. And oddly, given the state’s long role as the leader of marijuana decriminalization and cultivation, support for sanctioning its general use here appears to lag behind the sentiment in the rest of the country. A Gallup poll in October showed support nationwide for legalizing pot at 50 percent for the first time since the pollster began asking the question in 1969, when only 12 percent of Americans supported it. A Rasmussen Reports survey this

month found 56 percent of voters favored authorizing and regulating cannabis sales like alcohol and tobacco sales. With this uptick in popularity, marijuana advocates succeeded in getting initiatives qualified for the upcoming November ballot in Colorado and Washington, while they failed in California. Dan Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC, said the California numbers suggest voters are concerned about the way the Compassionate Use Act, passed in 1996 to permit medical marijuana, has been carried out. “They like the idea of providing marijuana for medical use, but they’re worried that the law is being abused,” he said. Cities and counties have been strug-

gling with how to rein in the proliferation of pot shops. Some law enforcement agencies have targeted them, while some have been more lenient. Some cities have tried to ban them, and courts have issued conflicting opinions as to whether, where and how they can operate. The federal government, which does not recognize medical marijuana as legal, has been shutting down dispensaries and growers, while threatening landlords who rent to them and cities that give them official sanction by granting permits. Dale Gieringer, coordinator of the state chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said the state needs to regulate its medical marijuana distribution better before the public will go for wider use.

aid. The remaining special awards were the Corporate Award, Sam Bianco Labor Award and the Sarah and Anthony F. Kane Outstanding Achievement Award. ParenteBeard LLC, an accounting firm ranked among the top 25 in America, has a proven history of rendering monetary and voluntary support to the United Way and the nonprofit community, which earned it the Corporate Award. This award recognizes two companies that play a key role in the community through their support. Sallie Mae, the nation’s number one company in financial services specializing in education, was honored with the second Corporate Award for contributing more than $150,000. Kerri Gallagher won this year’s Sam Bianco Labor Award. She was recognized for her volunteer service at United Way’s Labor Christmas Stocking Project, which benefits 500 local children while assisting with many other community service efforts. Established in 2002, the Sarah and Anthony F. Kane Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes an individual Pennsylvania State Education Association or PSEA-affiliated association. JoAnn Jones accepted the award for her 19-year involvement with the Crestwood Education Association and her teaching at Rice Elementary School. She is most notably known for her participation as a Girl Scout leader, Cub Scout den mother. She also has chaired the Relay for Life and Hoops Fundraisers for the American Cancer Society. Despite slightly surpassing the goal of $4 million, Bill Jones, recently elected president and CEO of United Way of Wyoming Valley admitted, “The economy is not as good as we want it to be.” But Wednesday was a celebration of achievement each volunteer and company had worked to accomplish throughout the 2011 year. Bill Jones announced William E. Sordoni as incoming board chairman and Frank Joanlanne as campaign chairman for the 20122013 campaign.

linquency are being heard.” Luzerne County Public Defender Al Flora said his office cannot say who public defenders represent at any time. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley closed the hearing to the media and general public, though Tyler Winstead’s grandparents were allowed to attend. The grandparents were Tyler’s guardians. When contacted later at her home, Winstead’s grandmother, Carol Golden, declined comment and said the family was not going to talk to reporters. Salavantis explained the hearing was closed because of the nature of the charges likely to be filed. She did not elaborate. Hearings for juveniles are typically open if potential charges include murder, voluntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, arson, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, kidnapping, rape, robbery, or criminal conspiracy of any of the crimes listed, according to state law. All other charges involving juveniles are closed to the public. Sanguedolce said those types of proceedings are closed for the protection of the juvenile involved “who is presumed to be able to be rehabilitated.” Salavantis did not say if or when charges would be filed in the shooting, but did say they may be coming “in the near future.” Since the shooting, Yusiff and his family moved out of the Wilkes-Barre house and relocated to Coolbaugh Township, Monroe County. Yusiff told reporters the night Winstead was shot that he heard a gunshot and saw a man driving away in a red or burgundy, older model Ford Taurus. Immediately after the shooting, Luzerne County 911 broadcast a bulletin to be on the lookout for the vehicle. The search for the car has since withered without any explanation from investigators or Salavantis. Investigators obtained at least six search warrants that were all sealed. One was to obtain records to a cellphone owned by Yusiff’s mother, Angelina DeAbreau. Two other warrants permitted investigators to search the inside of 117 Hill St., on April 10 and April 13, at which time they removed bleach, a computer tower and what appeared to be blood spatter. Times Leader reporters Jerry Lynott and Ed Lewis contributed to this report.

Tornado from remnants of Beryl tears up houses By BRUCE SMITH Associated Press

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl spun off a tornado that destroyed three homes and damaged dozens of others near the North Carolina coast Wednesday as the system sped toward the Atlantic, authorities said. Between 40 and 50 homes were damaged near Peletier in the western part of Carteret County, said county Emergency Services Director Jo Ann Smith. She said there were no reports of injuries. Many homes suffered only minor damage, but three were destroyed when the winds came through shortly before noon, she said. The National Weather Service in Morehead City confirmed Wednesday that a strong EF1 tornado with maximum winds of 110 mph caused the damage. The remnants of the storm were skimming the North Car-

olina coast and prompting flood watches in eastern North Carolina. Beryl was expected to gain strength even as it loses its tropical characteristics. Heavy rains from the storm

caused some scattered street and lowland flooding near Wilmington, N.C., as the system approached. Loris., S.C., near the border of the two Carolinas, received more than 3 inches of

rain, and radar showed heavy showers along the Interstate 95 corridor in the two states. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Wednesday that Beryl was downgraded to a post-tropical storm and its center was located 40 miles west-southwest of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and was moving northeast at 21 mph. The hurricane center warned some additional strengthening was expected over the next couple of days. No coastal tropical cyclone watches or warnings were in effect Wednesday night, forecasters said. Reid Hawkins, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, said rain, not wind, was the concern with the system — and the rain would be welcome. He said Wilmington has received only about 75 percent of its normal rainfall this year. Beryl came ashore near Jacksonville, Fla., just after midnight

on Memorial Day as a tropical storm with 70 mph winds. It dumped10 inches of rain in some areas of north Florida. It struck Cumberland Island National Seashore off the Georgia coast. The island, part of the National Park Service, will remain closed to visitors until the weekend to give rangers time to clean up. Fred Boyles, the island’s superintendent, said Wednesday that downed trees and other debris still need to be cleared before Cumberland re-opens Saturday. Rangers evacuated the federally protected wilderness area reachable only by boat last Sunday, well ahead of the tropical storm’s landfall. The island off Georgia’s southeast corner gets about 43,500 visitors each year. Beryl is the second named tropical system of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane season, which doesn’t officially begin until Friday.

Butromovich said she was going to go home to check her smoke alarms. She said she will put new batteries in all of them. “This is awful,” she said as she watched firefighters attack the fire. “You never know what can happen at any time.” Naugle’s other daughter, Lindsey, arrived at the scene and was overcome with emotion. She found her mother and the two embraced as the fire destroyed the building. Naugle has lived in the building for five years. The siding on the building next to the Naugle unit at 92-94 Green St. was severely damaged by the heat. Firefighters and equipment came from surrounding communities. In addition to Edwardsville, crews from Kingston, Larksville, Plymouth, Courtdale and West Wyoming assisted. Bill O’Boyle, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 829-7218.

Berwick’s Gabby Kishbaugh attempts to score against Mechanicsburg keeper Shelby Koch in Wednesday’s PIAA first round.

ONE CRITICAL decision by the Scranton Knights gave the District 2 Class 4A baseball championship away. Tommy Alexander and the Wyoming Valley West Spartans were happy to take it. But only after Scranton coach Jamie Higgins took a losing gamble. He instructed his starting pitcher Tanner Schmidt, who was tossing a shutout and had a 1-0 lead at the time, to walk Joe Pechulis intentionally with two outs and a runner in scoring position in the bottom of the fifth inning. “I was a little bit surprised,” Pechulis said. Most fans in the stands were shocked. Because the move brought Valley West cleanup hitter Tommy Alexander to the plate, two innings after Alexander drove a long out to deep center field. “I’m going to second-guess myself,” Higgins said. He’s got a lot of company now. Especially after Alexander, predictably, blasted a two-run double that nearly reached the wall in left-center field, giving Valley West a 2-1 lead. That turned to 3-1 when Nick Hogan followed by driving home Alexander with a single, and by the time the inning finally ended, Valley West had all of its runs in a 4-1 victory. All because of one wrong strategical move. “I was happy they did it, actually,” Alexander said. He appeared to take more eagerness and focus to the plate with him during that at-bat than in any of his others Wednesday. “I did,” Alexander said. “On that double, I really realized I needed to get a hit for my team.” Good hit. Bad decision.

OPINION

“I felt we worked through some stuff, some injuries,” Berwick coach Paul DiPippa said. “We didn’t have Kelly (Sheptock) for the first six games, then Caty (Davenport) got hurt. It was the first time we scored in a state playoff game and we were right there, we were right there. I’m proud of the strides we made.” Natalie Zelenky, Mechanicsburg’s leading scorer, broke a 2-2 tie barely three minutes into the

Twice, they tied Mechanicsburg. And even after Mechanicsburg took the lead for good early in the second half, the Dawgs pressed on. But the effort, as inspired as it was against the slick-passing Wildcats, still ended up in a 3-2 loss for Berwick and another quick exit from the state playoffs. Berwick ended its season at 12-4-1, winning its second consecutive District 2 title and the final district title in the spring as all girls soccer moves to the fall in a few months.

PAUL SOKOLOSKI

Picking his poison In defense of Higgins, he had perfectly logical reasons for making a decision he never hesitated to call. Most notably, Higgins explained, Pechulis had Valley West’s only two hits – including a home run – when the two teams met in an exhibition game earlier this year. “If we were going to get the game tied, or lose the game, I wanted it to be someone else,” Higgins said. He had the support of Valley West coach John Milius. “I’m saying to myself, ‘I would do the same thing,’” Milius said. “Create a situation where there’s a force at second, a force at third. I said, ‘This boy (Higgins) is on the ball.’” Only Alexander nearly drove the ball to the wall, and made Scranton’s strategy pay off with a district title for Valley West. He kind of expected he’d get the chance in that situation. “I wasn’t surprised,” Alexander said of the intentional walk to Pechulis. “I wasn’t hitting the ball to my potential.” Yet, he’d already hit the deepest ball of the day, even with

North Pocono vs. Berwick 4:30 p.m. today Scranton High School

The storyline: The Bulldogs are in their first district title game since 2008. That team became the first – and still the only – WVC squad to win a PIAA baseball championship. The 2012 edition has a lot in common with that team, sporting a deep and reliable pitching staff and some timely hitting. Berwick will need the same confidence it had four years ago to beat North Pocono. The Trojans boast the most dangerous lineup in the entire district, averaging over 10 runs per game.

THE TIMES LEADER

The storyline: Once again, the record and the seed doesn’t matter for the Royals, who make their third straight trip to the Class 2A final. A full schedule of 4A and 3A schools keeps the regular-season results modest but has Redeemer battle-tested for the playoffs. The Royals lost to Meyers and Lake-Lehman in the title game the past two years but will draw a Lackawanna League squad this time around. Both schools are products of the 2007 Catholic school mergers in the area and are looking for their first baseball titles.

second half. The junior forward connected on a 25-yard liner that sent the D3 sixth seed Wildcats (17-6-1) to the quarterfinals on Saturday against D3 fourth seed Bishop McDevitt. Berwick never quite found offensive continuity throughout the second half. Its final hope came with 1:16 remaining when Karleigh Hartman made a strong run down the right side only to be stopped well before the 18-yard line. Even so, Berwick gained the respect of Mechanicsburg. “Berwick certainly seems like a team that plays really, really hard and never gives up,” Mechanicsburg coach Tony Lougee said. “We knew that about them going in.” Berwick could have. Like last year’s 4-0 loss to Manheim Township, Berwick was in a hole very early. Just 1:41 into the game, Meghan Ross popped in a rebound for a 1-0 Wildcat lead. Davenport, though, stuck less than two minutes later to tie the score. Olivia Conklin sent a long pass to Davenport, who got around her defender in the penalty area. But once again Zelenky came up big. She and Sheptock, considered by most coaches as the Wyoming Valley Conference’s best defender, were running stride-for-stride at the left post. Zelenky pulled up about 10 yards from the goal, giving her a split second to fire in another goal. Sheptock got some revenge in the 30th minute, starting a scoring play with a long direct that resulted in a goal by Hartman and a 2-2 tie. “I felt when we got the second goal and tied, we got a lot of confidence,” DiPippa said. “And we played with a lot of confidence. I felt we were the more physical team than them. But their passing on the ground just ate us up.”

DECISION Continued from Page 1B

Scranton’s sweet-swinging and University of Virginia-bound Joe McCarthy having a 3-for-3 day. That made Alexander the biggest threat in Valley West’s lineup Wednesday. “I really wanted to hit, but I’ll take the intentional walk,” said Pechulis, one of the most dangerous hitters in Valley West’s lineup. “Tommy, he’s a great hitter. He’s extremely powerful and will put it out at any time. And he almost did. Plus, it’s a sign of respect for me as a hitter. “They paid.” That only happened because Alexander came through with the biggest clutch hit of Valley West’s 15-1 season. All because a logical decision backfired at the decisive time. Paul Sokoloski is a Times Leader sports columnist. You may reach him at 970-7109 or email him at psokoloski@timesleader.com.

Wyoming Area’s Emily Wolfgang looks to tag Valley View’s Liz Aniska (3) as she slides into second base Wednesday during the District 2 Class 3A softball championship at Marywood.

Area’s memorable season. Aniska singled and scored to straight over Cholish’s head. By TOM ROBINSON For The Times Leader

SCRANTON – Blayse Cholish immediately took a small step forward. By then, the Valley View sophomore right fielder only had time for about two steps back. The scorching line drive off the bat of Alex Holtz left no time for anything else. Cholish went up high to reach the line drive, holding on to protect a late one-run lead on the way to Valley View’s 6-1 victory over Wyoming Area on Wednesday in the District 2 Class 3A softball final at Marywood University. “That could have, I think, changed the entire tempo of the game,” Wyoming Area coach Stephanie Griffin said. “After that, the momentum changed in their favor.” The catch protected a 2-1 lead by stealing what would have been an extra-base hit from Holtz before Valley View scored four times in the bottom half of the inning. “That was a heckuva play,” Valley View coach E.J. Weston said. “It was a momentum stopper.” Valley View third baseman Casey Pearce, who had the game’s biggest defensive gem to that point with a diving catch of a soft foul pop, moved to her left to make a tough play look easy

in. And as she’s done throughout the District 2 Class 2A tournament, Katie Wolfe delivered in the clutch to give Nanticoke a 2-1 victory over Lakeland in the district championship game at Wilkes’ Ralston Athletic Complex. “It felt so good. I knew that with two outs, as soon as Katie hit the ball, I just ran as hard as I could,” Hillan said of scoring the winning run. “This is our senior year. It feels good to be the district champions. It’s another step toward our final goal.”

“There was not a lot of time to react at all,” Cholish said. Cholish jumped, reached overhead and made the grab despite having some of the ball hanging out of the glove. She fell to the ground, but kept her left arm raised with the ball sticking out, showing that she had held on. “The line drives are hardest to catch as an outfielder,” Cholish said. “You can’t judge them right. “When I took the step in, I did my best to go back as much as I could and put my glove up.” Valley View has allowed less than a run per game over the past two seasons while losing just once – 1-0 to Manheim Central in last season’s state semifinal. The Warriors did reasonably well making contact on and pitcher Gina Chieffallo, who struck out six, but none in the last three innings. They could not, however, get the ball past Valley View’s fielders. In addition to Cholish and Pearce, middle infielders Liz Aniska and Molly Ann Mecca made impressive defensive plays. Aniska changed directions when a shot by Holtz went off Chieffalo’s glove and made the throw to get a close out at first. “Their whole field was solid,” Griffin said. “They made some great plays and a few balls fell in for them.”

Hillan opened the bottom of the eighth with a single to center off Lakeland pitcher Alissa Steier. With Katie Kowalski looking to bunt, Hillan stole second. Kowalski followed by shooting a ball into right field for a single, and Hillan rounded third. “Yeah, but I saw the ball right there in front of me,” Hillan said. “I wasn’t sure I’d make it home safely.” The frame went from runners on second and third and none out to bases loaded and two outs as Wolfe stepped in. Consecutive balls away ran the count to 3-1, leaving Wolfe locked in on a pitch to hit. “I went up there a little nervous, but when the count got to 3-1, I knew she was going to give me a

Drew Bednarski reached to lead off the second when Valley View committed its only error on a throw by Aniska. Lexi Coolbaugh sacrificed Bednarski to second. Bednarski then scored on a single to left field by Adrienne Pryzbyla. Coolbaugh singled in the fourth for the third and final hit off Chieffallo, who then retired the last 10 batters.

strike,” Wolfe said. “I had struck out the past two times up. I just wanted to hit the ball. I backed off the plate figuring she would work me inside.” She lofted the ball into left field, easily bringing home the winning run for the second time in three games. Wolfe also had the gamewinning RBI against Dunmore in the district quarterfinals and had an insurance RBI in a 2-0 win over Montrose in the semifinals. “I felt like it was a pop-up to short. I rounded first and saw it drop,” Wolfe said of Wednesday’s game-winner. “I saw it drop in. It was the most amazing feeling.” Hannah Rubasky pitched another gem, getting seven of her first nine outs via strikeouts. She

Brodeur. As soon as he rifled the puck into the net, he raised his hands and banged himself into the boards, facing the crowd off to Brodeur’s right. The veteran goaltender dejectedly skated off to the locker room as the rest of the Kings piled on Kopitar. Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick finished with 17 saves in what was a relatively easy night. Brodeur had 23 saves as the Devils lost in overtime for just the second time this postseason; they have won four times. LA is 3-0 in overtime this spring. The Devils had two great chances to take the lead early in

ing single from Taylor Perlis to give hurler Linso more breathing room and a 5-1 lead. Linso, who tossed all seven innings only giving up four hits while fanning six, got stronger when she knew the game was in her hands. The senior allowed a one-out single to Chelsea Cadwalder in the top of the seventh, but struck out the side to end the game and send her team into the district title contest. “Rachel’s been a great asset to our team and we’re going to miss her,” May added. “She gives it her all and leaves it out on the field. She does get stronger as the game goes on. I knew that, the girls knew that and it was just a matter of putting the ball in play.” The game resumed in the top of the third with a 1-1 count on the Devils’ Brea Carling. She laced a single to start then scored on a Northwest error for a 1-0 lead. Six Blue Devils hitters batted in the inning, which consisted of two Rangers’ miscues. After that, Linso was on her game with only two more Old Forge batters reaching base. After registering in Tuesday’s first inning, the Rangers only had one hit until the five-run sixth and that was a single by Maranda Koehn in the fifth. “It just all came together (in the sixth),” Murphy noted. “We just really wanted this win and we did it.” Linso reached base three times and scored a run to help her cause. Her counterpart Nemetz tossed six innings allowing five hits, two walks and struck out three, while the Devils’ Lauren Carey was the lone player with two hits from either side going 2for-3.

SHICKSHINNY – After almost 24 hours passed when Northwest Area and Old Forge walked off the field in the District 2 Class A semifinal, the Rangers needed less than an hour to eliminate the Blue Devils. Fifteen of those minutes came in a five-run bottom of the sixth as Northwest knocked off Old Forge, 5-1 to advance to the district finals for the first time since 2009 after two straight losses in the district semifinals, including last year to Old Forge. “These girls are fighters. They’ve been fighters all season long in the big games,” Rangers coach Karen May said. “They wanted this game here today. It’s been looming over their heads the last few years in the semifinal and they got the job done.” Trailing 1-0 entering the last of the sixth, the Rangers finally got to Old Forge pitcher Taylor Nemetz, who had kept them in check the first five innings, only giving up two hits before the outburst. In the big frame, Northwest batted around piling up five runs, three hits and two walks. Nemetz hadn’t walked a batter before walking Rachel Linso and Susie Mendegro consecutively to load the bases after a run already scored. An RBI-double by Sara Gleco knotted the game at 1. With the bases loaded, the stage was set for freshman Maggie Murphy. With one swing, the third baseman unloaded the bags with a two-out, three-run triple to rightcenter to put the Rangers ahead Northwest 5, Old Forge 1 4-1.

It was reviewed in Toronto and replay clearly showed Parise swept the puck into the net with his hand.

Kraky had one of her three hits, a single to left that brought home Amorine just ahead of an amazing throw by Gow up the line. Nanticoke will play the District 11 champion on Monday in the first round of the state tournament.

DISTRICT 2 CLASS 2A BASEBALL

Big inning sends Redeemer to championship game A six-run sixth inning earns Royals a date with Holy Cross today for district crown.

By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

HANOVER TWP. — They had met before, well back in March. Holy Redeemer entered Hanover Area’s preseason tournament as the experienced two-time district finalist. The Hawkeyes were the talented but youthful squad looking to do some damage. Two months later, it was Hanover Area riding high with a No. 1 seed and a perfect record in league play. But it was the veter-

an Royals squad that came out on top again. A tight game broke wide open in the sixth as the Royals put six runs on the board en route to a 7-0 victory Wednesday in the District 2 Class 2A semifinals at Hanover Area High School. No. 12 Holy Redeemer advanced to its third straight district championship, looking for its first title at 2 p.m. today against Holy Cross at Connell Park in Scranton. The Crusaders knocked off Montrose in the bracket’s other semifinal. “That’s our goal this year,” Royals coach Chris Ritsick said of a district crown. “We started off slow, but we never lost sight of it.

DISTRICT 2 CLASS 3A BASEBALL

Weather, Nanticoke no match for Miller

Pitcher sends Berwick to first and brought Berwick coach district final since the team’s Brian Pinterich to the mound. Pinterich told his players it was state title run in 2008. tolerable to allow two runs, but By TIM HARE For The Times Leader

they couldn’t allow all three runners to score. He later admitted he also secretly hoped the rain would pick up so the umps would clear the field and, hopefully after a short delay, they could dry the sloppy infield. Pinterich got his wish, and was faced with a dilemma. If the delay was a long one, Miller’s arm could stiffen. While he considered pulling Miller, the umps brought the players back out to finish the game. “Another five minutes of rain,” Pinterich said, “and I was going to my bullpen.” Miller came back out to the mound and recorded the last two outs —and perhaps most importantly he recorded strikeouts, as Nanticoke failed to put the ball in play on the slick infield. “Striking out the last two was huge,” Pinterich said. “With the field the way it was, if they put the ball in play, who knows what happens.” Berwick had to rely on Miller because, for the most part, it was unable to deliver timely hits against Ioanna. The Bulldogs stranded four runners in scoring position, including leaving a runner at third in the second and the sixth. “We didn’t have our best offensive performance, but that’s okay,” Miller said. “I was able to put the team on my back and (string) some outs together.” Miller’s not the only one who’s confident he can carry the team at this point. Pinterich said, “We’ve got a swagger right now. We feel we can compete with anybody.”

BERWICK — As a downpour hit during the seventh inning of the District 2 Class 3A semifinal, Berwick pitcher Kyle Miller looked like the only person eager to stand out in the pouring rain. “I probably weighed about 20 pounds heavier,” he said. “I just wanted to get it over with already.” Who could blame him? He’d already dealt with one postponement, then cruised through 62⁄3 innings only to face a bases-loaded jam in the top of the seventh when the rain hit again. Miller didn’t get his wish — nearly the only thing that didn’t go right for him Wednesday. He had to wait out a 15-minute delay before striking out Nanticoke’s Tyler Myers to clinch Berwick’s 2-0 win and send the Bulldogs to the district final for the first time since 2008, when the program won a state title. Berwick plays for the district title today against North Pocono at 4:30 p.m. at Scranton High School. Miller first took the mound against Nanticoke on Tuesday, finishing one inning before a thunderstorm pushed the game back a day. He allowed two hits in the first, stranding runners at second and third. For the most part, Miller didn’t get into nearly that much trouble Wednesday, allowing just one more hit and striking out eight. At one point from the third inning until the leadoff batter in the seventh, he retired 11 straight. But the seventh is when things Berwick 2, Nanticoke 0 got interesting.

Youthful Allen, 24, walks away By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings announced Wednesday that cornerback Asher Allen has retired from football, a curious decision for a 24-yearold who was about to enter only his fourth NFL season. Coach Leslie Frazier didn’t get into specifics of the conversation he had with Allen last week, but did say he was surprised by the decision by the former thirdround draft pick, who would have been counted on to provide

depth in the secondary this season. “I didn’t see that coming,” Frazier said after the team held an optional practice. “Everybody has to make decisions that they think are best for them.” Allen was drafted out of Georgia in 2009. He started 11 games in 2010, but struggled last season as part of the Vikings’ banged-up secondary. He had four interceptions in his career. Allen suffered at least two concussions in his three years in the NFL, including one last season.

We kept it as our goal, and here we are. Hopefully the third time’s the charm.” Hanover Area (13-1) fell in the semifinals for the second straight year. The Royals (8-10) got another standout performance on the mound from Pat Condo. The senior right-hander threw a four-hit shutout, finishing with eight strikeouts against a potent Hawkeyes lineup. Condo also picked up the win over Meyers in the first round and has allowed just one run on six hits in 13 innings this postseason, earning him some added respect. “I certainly would think so,” Ritsick said. “He pitched his

heart out today. He kept them offbalance. He threw the fastball, curveball and change-up for strikes and kept them guessing.” It was Condo who finally gave the Royals some breathing room with a big at-bat. Up just 1-0 in the sixth thanks to an RBI single by Will Cavanaugh, Redeemer loaded the bases with no outs. Condo ended up clearing the bases, driving in two runs with a single while the third run came home on an error, one of six committed by the Hawkeyes on the afternoon. “Defensively today, we might have had half the amount of errors that we did all season,” Hanover Area coach Mike Zapotos-

ki said. “(Redeemer), they have a don’t expect anything but a disbunch of seniors on their team, trict championship out of them and you could tell they played next year,” Zapotoski said. like they were more experienced.

phen Dosiak led off with a single before Milius elected to have No. 2 hitter Matt Zielen sacrifice him over to second. That prompted Scranton to intentionally walk Joe Pechulis, setting the stage for senior Tommy Alexander, who drove a 1-1 curveball over the head of the Knights outfielders in left-center for a two-run double. Nick Hogan added some insurance with an RBI single and eventually scored on an error to give the Spartans a three-run cushion. Alexander topped 100 pitches in the sixth before exiting the game with seven strikeouts. Milius went with No. 2 starter Matt Zielen in the seventh, and he delivered with two more strikeouts to pick up the save. Scranton (13-4) struck first, turning a leadoff walk into a run in the top of the third. Jake McCarthy drew the free pass, went to second on a sacrifice and then stole third before coming home on Joe McCarthy’s RBI single. “I figured if we could go up two, three runs on them – they’ve never been down like that,” Scranton coach Jamie Higgins said. “I thought it would rattle them a little bit. But we never got to that.” Indeed, the Knights mustered just four hits on the game – three by Joe McCarthy, a Virginia recruit. So while the Spartans still trailed heading into the bottom of the fifth, there was still plenty of confidence for a Valley West squad on a 13-game winning streak. “It really does feel great, especially because the last two years we went out in the first round,” Alexander said. “The thing is with this team, we’ve been

DISTRICT 2 CLASS 3A BASEBALL

Coughlin ousted by top-seeded North Pocono Trojans pick up where they left off Tuesday in eliminating Crusaders. By ZACH DOLEIDEN For The Times Leader

COVINGTON TWP. — With a trip to the district finals on the line, fifth-seeded Coughlin traveled to top-seeded North Pocono for a District 2 Class 3A semifinals showdown. In a contest that took two days to complete due to inclement weather, North Pocono was able to come away with an 8-2 victory over the Crusaders once the rain finally subsided. North Pocono will play thirdseeded Berwick at 4:30 p.m. today at Scranton High School for the championship. North Pocono didn’t waste any time finding its way onto the scoreboard. After Joe Runco led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple rocketed into the gap in right-center field, Coughlin pitcher Josh Featherman walked Billy Nelson and Ray Grapsy to load the bases. Joe Kaspar and Adam Misiura each followed with hard-hit

singles to center field to give the Trojans an early 3-0 lead. After Coughlin was set down 12-3 in the top of the second, North Pocono tacked on two more runs in its half of the inning as Kaspar drew a bases-loaded walk and Misiura reached first safely on an infield single. With North Pocono holding a 5-0 lead after two innings, the tarps were laid on the infield and the rest of the game was postponed Tuesday due to incoming thunderstorms. As day two of the semifinal matchup was set to begin, it quickly became apparent that the worst of the storm was over for the Crusaders as their offense began to find its way at the plate and pitcher Dave Marriggi started to settle in on the mound. After the high-powered North Pocono offense was held to just single runs in the third and fourth innings that pushed its lead to 7-0, Coughlin finally cracked through. With one out, Marriggi lifted a home run to left field that just cleared the fence to bring the score to 7-1. Marriggi then returned to the mound and tossed a scoreless fifth, retiring Runco on a force out before striking out Nelson

with runners on first and third. Marriggi then got Grapsy to ground out to Jordan Sod at second base to end the inning. The best chance for Coughlin to mount a comeback came in the top of the sixth inning. Following a bloop single to right field by Ryan Sypniewski and a Sod walk, Justin Francis drew a walk to load the bases with one out, forcing North Pocono to bring in Kaspar to pitch. Kaspar immediately came through by striking out Marriggi before getting Joe Parsnik to ground out to second to bring the threat to an abrupt end. “This was a copycat of our game all year,” Coughlin coach Moe Rodzinak said. “We had men on base. We hit the ball well, but it seemed like when we got the bases loaded or two men on, we just couldn’t get that other hit. “All year long, we left a lot of men on base.” In the bottom of the frame, the Trojans added one final run on a Misiura double that scored Kaspar from first. The Crusaders added a run in the seventh on an RBI single by Sypniewski before the final out was recorded. “This is a great experience for

them, not only to play in district playoffs but to play one of the better teams,” Rodzinak said. “Our pitchers are both young kids, so pitching against a good team like this is great experience. We had a good group of kids that didn’t quit. Even in the last inning down by those runs, they were still swinging.” North Pocono didn’t savor the win long. “I’ll get on the computer and the phone to see what I can find out about Berwick,” North Pocono coach Brian Jardine said. “We’ve played them in the past and I’m sure my kids will be ready to go. I can guarantee that much even without any days off in between games.” North Pocono 8, Coughlin 2 District 2 Class 3A semifinal Coughlin North Pocono ab r h bi ab r h bi Marriggi cf-p 3 1 1 1 Runco ss 3 2 1 0 Parsnik ss 3 0 1 0 Haddix p 3 1 2 1 Gulius c 3 0 0 0 Nelson 2b 1 1 0 0 Bednarczyk lf 0 0 0 0 Grapsy lf 1 2 0 1 Lupas 1b 3 0 1 0 Kaspar 3b 4 1 3 1 Featherman p 3 1 1 0 Misiura 1b 4 0 3 5 Sypniewski rf 4 0 2 1 Brown c 4 0 0 0 Sod 2b 3 0 0 0 Jaggars rf 0 0 0 0 Rivera lf 3 0 0 0 Tugend dh 3 1 0 0 Wozniak3b 0 0 0 0 Darrow cf 3 0 1 0 Francis dh 2 0 1 0 Totals 27 2 7 2 Totals 26 8 10 8 Coughlin ................................... 000 010 1 — 2 North Pocono .......................... 321 101 x — 8 2B – Haddix, Misiura. 3B – Runco.

Ruiz, Rollins help Phils smack Mets The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Pinch-hitter Carlos Ruiz came through with a tying homer in the seventh inning, Jimmy Rollins added a three-run shot and Philadelphia busted loose late to beat the Mets. Shane Victorino drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth off Jon Rauch (3-4). Ty Wigginton also homered for the Phillies, who improved to 3-6 against the Mets this season. Lucas Duda went deep twice, including a two-run shot off Lee in the sixth to give the Mets a 3-1 lead. Dillon Gee pitched 6 2-3 effective innings, but the New York bullpen was battered after he left. Antonio Bastardo (2-1) and Jose Contreras each worked a scoreless inning. Marlins 5, Nationals 3

MIAMI (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton hit his 12th home run in May to tie the franchise record for a single month and the Miami Marlins earned their 20th comeback victory Wednesday night, completing a three-game sweep of the first-place Washington Nationals with a 5-3 win. Stanton hit a solo homer in the seventh inning, his 13th this year, and had a two-out RBI single in the first. Still only 22, Stanton tied Dan Uggla’s team record for the most homers in a month and totaled 30 RBIs in May. Josh Johnson (3-3) gave up three runs in six innings and singled home the tying run with his first hit of the year. Johnson and Anibal Sanchez are a combined 16-0 against the Nationals. Sanchez beat them Tuesday. Braves 10, Cardinals 7

ATLANTA — Freddie Freeman homered and drove in

three runs, wearing his new glasses, to help the Braves recover after blowing a five-run lead and beat the Cardinals. Freeman, who had missed four straight starts because of vision problems, was elated about receiving his new sports glasses before the game. He broke out of slump with three hits: his eighth homer in the first, a run-scoring double in the third and run-scoring single in the eighth. Jonny Venters (3-2) recorded the last out of the sixth. Craig Kimbrel earned his 15th save. The Braves broke a 5-5 tie with three runs on four hits off Mark Rzepczynski (0-3) in the sixth. Cubs 8, Padres 6

CHICAGO — Darwin Barney hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Cubs a win over San Diego. Barney launched an offering from Dale Thayer (0-1) into the left-center field bleachers to give the Cubs a three-game sweep. James Russell (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the win. Carlos Quentin hit two homers and drove in four runs for the Padres. He had six extra-base hits and six RBI in the three-game series. Pirates 2, Reds 1

PITTSBURGH — A.J. Burnett allowed just two hits over seven innings, Matt Hague delivered a two-run double and the Pirates edged the Reds. Burnett (4-2) escaped early trouble then cruised, giving up one unearned run while striking out three and walking two to win his third straight start. Joel Hanrahan worked out of a two-on, one-out jam for his 13th save as the Pirates clinched their first winning May in four years.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

White Sox sting Rays for 8th straight win The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Alexei Ramirez drove in two runs and the Chicago White Sox extended their best win streak of the season to eight games with a 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday. Dayan Viciedo had a runscoring single and Ramirez hit a sacrifice fly to help Chicago take a 3-1 lead in the third. Ramirez made it 4-1 with an RBI double in the fifth. Luke Scott and Carlos Pena homered for the Rays, who have dropped nine of 13 at home. White Sox starter Jose Quintana was ejected by plate umpire Mark Wegner with two outs in the fourth when he threw a pitch behind Ben Zobrist at knee level. Chicago manager Robin Ventura was also tossed by Wegner for arguing. Red Sox 6, Tigers 4

BOSTON — David Ortiz and Will Middlebrooks each hit two-run homers, Kevin Youkilis had a solo shot and the surging Boston Red Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-4 on Wednesday night. The Red Sox have won for the 14th time in 19 games but remain in last in a jammed AL East. Miguel Cabrera went 4 for 5 with three doubles and drove in a run for Detroit, which has dropped the first three of a four-game series in Fenway Park. Blue Jays 4, Orioles 1

TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion hit one of Toronto’s

four solo home runs, leading the Blue Jays to a three-game sweep of Baltimore. Rajai Davis, Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus also homered for the Blue Jays. Brandon Morrow suffered a bruised right shin when he was struck by Wilson Betemit’s liner in the seventh, hopping around the mound in pain. X-rays were negative and he is day-to-day. Morrow (6-3) gave up one run and four hits over 6 1-3 innings. He walked two and struck out eight. Royals 6, Indians 3

CLEVELAND — Bruce Chen overcame a rocky second inning and Kansas City scored its first five runs with two outs in a win over Cleveland. Chen (4-5) held the Indians scoreless after giving up three runs in the second. Alex Gordon, Johnny Giavotella, Mike Moustakas, Jeff Francoeur and Brayan Pena had run-scoring hits for Kansas City, which has won four of its last six to finish a nine-game road trip at 5-4. Twins 4, Athletics 0

MINNEAPOLIS — Francisco Liriano tossed six shutout innings in his return to Minnesota’s rotation, sending Oakland to its eighth straight loss. Liriano (1-5) retired the last 11 batters he faced and struck out nine, the most this season by any Twins pitcher. He allowed only two walks with a double and two singles against the worst-hitting team in the majors that brought a brutal .212 batting average into the game.

Cocalico twins topple Seminary By MATTHEW SHUTT For The Times Leader

in response to Longstaff scoring strikes that, both times, pulled the Blue Knights to within a goal. However, a small handful of turnovers and shots from close range that missed the mark – or on one occasion, banged off the side of an open net – doomed Seminary in the first half. “There were some groundballs that we just missed that (Cocalico) got to that helped start their offense for them, there were some shots we missed that we don’t usually,” Wyoming Seminary coach Catie Kersey said. “I won’t take anything away from Cocalico, I thought they played great, but, I think we could have played a little better.” The chances for Wyoming Seminary were fewer in the second half, however, as Cocalico continued its methodical and determined offensive approach. Possession after possession the Eagles gained control, worked the ball out to the wings or behind the net, and waited for the right teammate to come sprinting through the middle of Seminary’s defense. “During timeouts, all I said to them was ‘patience’,” Cardin said. “I was determined not to try and turn this into a run-andgun kind of game because when we do that sometimes we force it and turn it over. But, when we work the ball around, we can get something good out of it.” The approach led to three goals over the opening eightand-a-half minutes of the second half, the Longstaff sisters again in on the action as Avery (six goals, two assists) scored once and Keri (four goals, three assists) assisted on Courtney Forry’s second goal of the game for a 13-6 lead at the 16:37 mark that was too much for the Blue Knights. Emily Granger and Ann Romanowski, two big parts of Seminary’s success during the course of its season, scored Seminary’s only goals of the second half. Mericle finished with two goals and two assists to lead the offense, while Granger and Norris each finished with two goals.

EDWARDSVILLE – During the PIAA Tournament first round contest between Wyoming Seminary’s and Cocalico’s girls lacrosse teams, there were goals scored early, goals scored often and goals scored repeatedly by one team’s best players. Sounds like any other Wyoming Seminary girls lacrosse game, right? Well. . . . Cocalico scored five unanswered goals over a nearly seven minute span of the first half to widen its lead over Seminary before pouring in seven more second half goals for a 17-8 win Wednesday evening at the Ralston Athletic Complex. With the win, Cocalico (20-3) advances to the quarterfinal round for a game to be played Saturday against the winner of the Radnor/Hatboro-Horsham game. Wyoming Seminary concludes its season with a record of 13-8. “It’s a good win,” Cocalico coach Mary Beth Cardin said. “We made a few mistakes we’ll have to clean up for the next round, but, overall it was a team effort for a win against a good team.” The Eagles recorded 11 assists on 17 goals and saw six players score at least once. The majority of the damage, though, came from twin sisters Avery and Keri Longstaff. Avery started the scoring for Cocalico just two minutes into the game and split the first six goals with Kerri for a 6-4 lead with 10:24 to go in the first half. Keri’s third tally of the spree kicked off Cocalico’s run of five unanswered goals in the first half that was punctuated by Avery. “I’m just glad they’re on my team,” Cardin said. “Maybe it’s just something about being an identical twin. They finish each other’s sentences, they room together when we go on the road … they just know where the other one is on the field.” Despite the rash of first-half goals from the Eagles, Wyoming Cocalico 17, Wyoming Seminary found a tandem of its Seminary 8, PIAA own that kept the game within first round range throughout the first half.

Celtics wilt under Heat By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — The biggest postseason comeback in Miami Heat franchise history wasn’t enough. The Heat needed more — and got it, digging deep to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 23 and the Heat rallied from 15 down to beat the Boston Celtics 115-111 in overtime on Wednesday night. Mario Chalmers scored 22 for the Heat, who won despite an unbelievable night by Rajon Rondo. The Celtics guard played all 53 minutes and scored 44 points, dished out 10 assists and grabbed eight rebounds. Paul Pierce scored 21 points, Kevin Garnett added 18 and Ray Allen 13 for Boston. Allen’s 3-pointer with 34.3 seconds left tied the game at 99-all. James missed two shots, first a layup — he got the rebound of his own miss — and then a jumper on the final possession of regulation, and to overtime they went. Game 3 is Friday in Boston. The Heat had come back from 14 points down in playoff games twice before, first in Game 6 of the 2006 NBA finals — their title clincher — and again last season against Philadelphia. And this one was slipping away, more than once. James also two free throws 21 seconds into overtime, and Miami looked in trouble. The scoring dossier in overtime began like this: Rondo

Djokovic advances; Venus eclipsed PARIS — The top-seeded players had early starts at the French Open on Wednesday, and both Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka made it to the third round without a problem. A short time later, 2009 champion Roger Federer joined them, earning his record-breaking 234th victory at Grand Slam tournaments. Former top-ranked player Venus Williams was eliminated, a day after little sister Serena lost in the first round. The seven-time Grand Slam champion, who was playing at a major tournament for the first time since revealing she had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, lost to third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-2, 6-3. Djokovic was first up on Court Suzanne Lenglen, and he was barely troubled by Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia, winning 6-0, 6-4, 6-4 for his 23rd straight Grand Slam victory. “I gave him the opportunity to come back to the match after a perfect first set, first seven games,” Djokovic said. “But,

look, this is tennis.” In the main stadium at Roland Garros, Azarenka defeated Dinah Pfizenmaier of Germany 6-1, 6-1 — two days after struggling to win her opening match. “Being No. 1 is a difficult job, because everybody want to catch you, everybody want to move you from the spot,” Azarenka said. “Nothing is going to come easy just because you’re No. 1. You actually have more people ... motivated trying to beat you.” Last year at the U.S. Open, Williams withdrew before her second-round match. It was then that she revealed she had been diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, a condition that can cause fatigue and joint pain. On Tuesday, Serena Williams lost in the first round of a major tournament for the first time, falling to Virginie Razzano of France 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3. Djokovic is looking to win his fourth straight Grand Slam title, and first at Roland Garros. Last year, the Serb lost to Federer in the semifinals, ending his 43match winning streak. On Wednesday, Djokovic was broken once by Kavcic, but other-

wise had little trouble. He did, however, finish the match with 34 unforced errors, compared with 21 for Kavcic. “He was defending really well in the second and third set, especially in the second,” Djokovic said. “He wasn’t missing as many balls as in the first set.” Federer had an easy run in the first two sets, but then wasted two match points in the third. He saved all six break points to beat Adrian Ungur of Romania 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (6), 6-3 on Court Philippe Chatrier. “Instead of being aggressive, I let him show me what he could do,” Federer said of the tiebreaker. “He played two beautiful shots, and then I started not playing very well.” The 16-time Grand Slam champion broke a tie with Jimmy Connors for most career wins at major tournaments in the Open era, which began in 1968. He is now 234-35 in tennis’ top four tournaments, an .870 winning percentage. No. 7 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic and No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina also made it into the third round.

scored, Heat tied it, Rondo scored, Heat tied it, Rondo scored, Heat tied it. When Rondo missed a layup with 1:33 left, Miami took advantage, with Udonis Haslem getting a dunk to put the Heat up 105-103. And after a turnover on the next Boston possession, Wade drove the lane, hit the deck and watched as his layup bounced on the rim and dropped through. Garnett stood over Wade and glared, to no avail. Wade hit the free throw, and Miami was up 110-105 with 59.7 seconds left. On a night where the Heat missed 16 free throws — including at least four by James in crucial situations — they would survive. Miami was down by 15 in the first half and by as many as 11 in the third quarter, before a pair of 3-pointers by James started a comeback. Wade made consecutive jumpers midway through the third to shake off a slow start to his night and get the Heat within three both times, and the 2006 NBA finals MVP set up Haslem for a three-point play with 2:55 left that gave Miami its first lead since the opening minutes, 73-71. As Haslem’s shot dropped, Wade spun at midcourt and punched the air. More highlights followed. Miami’s lead got to as much as seven in the third after James blocked Pierce’s shot near the rim, sending the ball high into the air and starting a sequence that was capped by a three-point play from Wade, pushing the margin to 78-71. It capped a 12-0 run for the Heat, who took an 8175 lead into the fourth. It was the fifth straight game where Miami outscored its opponent by double-digits in the third quarter. In each of the previous

four of those outings, Miami never trailed in the final period. That streak ended in this one. And a call that Boston argued against played a big role in the Celtics getting the lead back. James stole the ball from Rondo early in the fourth, drove down the court and got wrapped up by Mickael Pietrus, who was assessed a clearpath foul, meaning Miami got two free throws and the ball. James missed both foul shots, Mike Miller missed a 3-pointer later in the possession, and the lead stayed at 85-81. Barely a minute later, it was gone. Pietrus hit a 3-pointer, Rondo followed with a steal and layup and Boston led 8685. The Celtics led by five with 3:50 left after a jumper by Pierce, and the Celtics looked to be in control. It was temporary. The Heat scored the next nine points, Haslem’s jumper with 1:08 remaining put Miami up 98-94. So of course, back came Boston — Allen’s 3-pointer tying the game a few moments after Pierce fouled out. Early on, it was all Boston. Over the first 15-plus minutes, Boston was shooting 65 percent (15 for 23), Miami 27 percent (7 for 26). Miami’s point guard did his best to keep the Heat close. Chalmers had 12 in the second quarter and seven in a 14-6 Miami spurt to end the half. He hit a pair of 3-pointers during the flurry, Wade got his first points of the night on a fallingdown layup with 27 seconds left and the Heat closed the margin to 53-46 by halftime.

NEW YORK — New owner, and now a new star player coming to New Orleans. And yet another loss — in a historic season full of them — for Michael Jordan and the Charlotte Bobcats. The Hornets, recently sold by the NBA to Saints owner Tom Benson, won the NBA’s draft lottery Wednesday and the No. 1 pick overall — which they almost certainly will use to pick Kentucky star Anthony Davis. At least that’s what the consensus college player of the year is expecting. Moments after the Hornets won the lottery, Davis said he was looking forward to playing professionally in the place where he led the Wildcats to a national championship in April. The good news for the Hornets comes after a difficult season in which they traded All-Star Chris Paul. “Just a first step for us to winning it all,” Benson said in a TV interview after the lottery. The Hornets moved up from the fourth spot, where they had a 13.7 percent chance, to earn the pick. “Everything was surreal once they announced the fourth pick,” said Hornets coach Monty Williams, who represented the team on stage. “I said ‘This is pretty cool.’ I knew my wife and kids were home praying that things would go well and they did.” The Bobcats, after going 7-59 for the worst winning percentage in NBA history, fell to the No. 2 pick. Washington will pick third and Cleveland fell one spot to fourth. Charlotte had a 25 percent chance of grabbing the No. 1 pick, but instead will have to take the best player after Davis, possibly his teammate, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The team with the worst record hasn’t won since Orlando drafted Dwight Howard in 2004.

Trial debates Clemens’ career

Hurler added a new pitch to repertoire to extend his tenure, according to defense. By JOSEPH G. WHITE AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON — Knowledgeable baseball fans can argue all day whether it was the split-finger fastball — and not performance-enhancing drugs — that kept Roger Clemens on top of his game well into his 30s and beyond. His lawyers are trying to make that point at a trial where basic terms such as “Fenway Park” and “foul pole” require an explanation for a jury of nonfans. Former journeyman catcher Charlie O’Brien was on the stand Wednesday for the defense at the Clemens perjury trial. He was fuzzy about lots of details, couldn’t come up with a real name for the player known as “El Duque” and totally dissed the 1997 Toronto Blue Jays medical staff. But there was no doubt in his mind about two things: Clemens was not a cheater, and the weapon Clemens mastered at age 34 was the chief reason the 11time All-Star was able to pitch for another decade. “That pitch right there — the split-finger fastball,” O’Brien said. O’Brien caught Clemens’ games for much of the 1997 Blue Jays season, a crucial time period as prosecutors attempt to prove that Clemens lied when he told Congress in 2008 that he never took steroids and human growth hormone. After being discarded following 13 seasons with the Boston Red Sox — Boston’s thengeneral manager, Dan Duquette, said at the time that Clemens was in the “twilight” of his career — a motivated Clemens arrived in Toronto and promptly won back-toback Cy Young Awards in 199798. But it was also in 1998 that Clemens met strength coach Brian McNamee, who says he injected the pitcher with steroids and HGH over the following three years and testified that he had the impression the Clemens had used steroids previously. The government used its cross-examination of witnesses Wednesday to reinforce its claim that Clemens turned to performance-enhancing drugs to help his aging body recover more quickly during the physically demanding major league seasons. Also on the stand was Darrin Fletcher, Clemens’ catcher from the 1998 Blue Jays season. Fletcher testified that he didn’t see Clemens at a pool party at teammate Jose Canseco’s house in Florida in June of that season, but Fletcher also said he left the party around 1:30 p.m. A government witness recalled seeing Clemens at the party later in the day. One of the lesser charges against Clemens is that he lied when he told Congress that he wasn’t at the party at all. In front of a jury consisting mostly of people who know little about baseball, Clemens lawyer Rusty Hardin went for a visual effect to explain how the split-finger revolutionized Clemens’ game, striking a pose as a left-handed hitter in front of O’Brien, who pantomimed the grip of a baseball while seated in the witness chair. “It just totally changed how he could approach each hitter,” O’Brien said. O’Brien was even a better witness for the defense during crossexamination, when he volunteered that Clemens would refuse to throw scuffed baseballs because Clemens considered it “cheating.” He said he once approached Clemens on the mound during a game with a scuffed ball and said, “This is a great ball to use.” He said Clemens responded: “I don’t need that.” “I don’t think he’d cheat,” O’Brien said.

China plans stimulus

China’s Cabinet has approved plans to promote development of seven emerging industries including clean energy as it tries to restructure the economy and boost growth. The announcement comes as Beijing is trying to fight an economic slump with spending on affordable housing and public works construction. Other emerging industries targeted for support include environmental protection, information technology, biology, advanced equipment manufacturing, new materials and newenergy vehicles, the Cabinet said. China’s economic growth fell to a nearly three-year low of 8.1 percent in the first quarter.

Wal-Mart faces protests

Protesters against austerity measures in Spain have set up encampments in Barcelona’s main square, Placa Catalunya. Political unrest is rising in many places in Europe as the continent grapples with ways to reduce debt.

Retail giant Wal-Mart Stores is facing a wave of protests this week pushing for company leadership changes at its annual meeting Friday. The goal of protesters, organizers said, is to oust some Wal-Mart board members and push for more corporate transparency in the wake of allegations of widespread bribery in the company’s Mexican subsidiary. Wal-Mart has recommended voting for all the directors on the ballot and voting against all the proposals put forth by shareholders.

EU calls for ‘banking union’ By RAF CASERT Associated Press

BRUSSELS — The European Union’s executive office on Wednesday said the 17-country eurozone needs a “banking union” that can centrally oversee and if needed bail out the sector, which has become a weak link in the continent’s financial system. Fears that the cost of bank rescues could cause governments to need bailouts of their own have been fueling Europe’s debt crisis in recent months. Spain is in a particularly bad situation because its banks are not only holding massive amounts of

Most jobless rates fall

The Labor Department says unemployment rates fell in nearly all large U.S. cities in April from March, aided by summer hiring on farms and in tourist destinations. The metro employment data isn’t seasonally adjusted and can be volatile from month to month. The jobless rate in the labor market that includes Luzerne, Lackawanna and Wyoming counties showed a decline in the unadjusted figures but was steady at 8.7 percent when seasonal fluctuations were taken into account.

SNAP, CRACKLE, POP. Listen to what’s going on inside your computer and you’ll hear a whole host of clicking, whirring and humming. It might come as a surprise, but a lot of today’s high-tech gadgetry works on principles that are decades old. Take, for example, the conventional computer hard drive. We’ve depended on hard drives for decades to store our information. We’ve laughed as we replayed a funny video downloaded from email and we’ve cried as the hard drive failed and took with it all those important files. As “solid state” drives with no moving parts become commonplace, and with Internet-based cloud storage increasingly popular, the once ubiquitous hard drive that has clicked and clacked its way into our hearts for

A gauge of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes fell in April from nearly a two-year high in the previous month. Still, sales are well ahead of last year’s level for the same month, a sign that a slow recovery in the housing market continues. The National Association of Realtors says that its index of sales agreements dropped to 95.5, down from 101.1 in March but above the 83.5 of a year ago.

shaky government bonds but also sitting on huge losses on real estate investments. The country’s borrowing rates have hit record highs this week as investors worry it does not have the money to save its banks. One of them asked for (euro) 19 billion ($23.6 billion) last week. But Europe’s attempts to address the weakness of some countries’ banking sectors has been hindered by the lack of a central authority with the power to tell banks what to do to improve their balance sheets. Highlighting the urgency of the issue, the European Commission

suggested Wednesday that regulation of the entire eurozone banking sector be done centrally and that the cost of bailouts be shared. Part of the proposal would see the eurozone’s permanent bailout fund, the ESM, charged with helping pay for bank bailouts. That would protect individual governments from having their public finances overwhelmed by the cost of rescuing a bank. Germany, however, has long been against such an arrangement because, as the currency bloc’s paymaster, it would fund the lion’s share of any expenses the European bailout fund runs into.

MESHOPPEN – Job seekers hoping to break into the Marcellus Shale gas drilling business have an opportunity to shake hands, exchange cards and pass resumes at a combination job fair and natural gas expo Friday in Wyoming County. The Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce has hosted an annual job fair for at least a decade and a natural gas expo for the past three years, but this year it decided to hold a larger combined event at the Wyoming County Fairgrounds in Meshoppen. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be more than 135 booths sponsored by area companies and organizations, among them at least 25 drilling companies and gas industry service providers. Chamber Executive Director Maureen Dispenza said those companies are seeking candidates for at least 50 positions through the fair, and unlike other recent job fairs, most of the openings are not in multi-level marketing and sales. “These jobs are production jobs for the gas companies; they’re mechanic jobs,” Dispenza said. “The jobs themselves are good solid jobs.” The event is sponsored by three natural gas companies: Southwestern Energy Corp., Williams and Citrus Energy Corp. “Southwestern supports the opportunity to foster local business relationships in our community,” spokeswoman Susan Richardson said. “We will also have information about open positions available in Pennsylvania at the event.” At a time when natural gas drilling has slowed and shifted westward in Pennsylvania, Dispenza acknowledged that some companies have slowed hiring, but she said there still are opportunities for those who look. “Southwestern is still drilling up here; Williams is still laying their pipeline,” Dispenza said. “They’re still committed to the community and some are still hiring, just not at the same scale that they were a year ago,” she added.

TECH TALK NICK DELORENZO years might find itself tossed on the trash heap, alongside the 56k modem and the dot-matrix printer. And how many of us ever took the time to find out what all that noise was about? Like many storage technologies, a hard drive can trace its roots to the humble record player. A typical hard drive when opened looks like a series of metal “platters” stacked on a spindle, with read/write heads hovering over each disc mounted to a swing-arm. Viewed from the top, the whole thing looks a lot like an old-style turntable. The arm itself is mounted to a magnet, which is used to move it to various points on the discs at an extremely high rate of speed while writing data.

We’ll call today the calm before the storm. The weather today looks like a beautiful, mix of sun and clouds, low humidity and dry conditions. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the uper 70s. The clouds will increase tonight ahead of a storm system that will bring a soaking rain to our area Friday and Saturday. I know there are graduation parties planned for Friday and Saturday, so I would suggest to make plans in case of heavy rains. - Kurt Aaron

ith so much to do at Community Park in Duryea, 5-year-old Brady Mullin of West Pittston wasn’t quite sure where to begin.

“I’m going to go on the slide,” he said to his dad,

J.J., before taking a detour to two spinning cups on one side of the park, then changing his mind and running for a smaller, different slide. It’s difficult not to get overwhelmed when walking into the park on Stephenson Street. The mountainous Mega Tower that sits at the back of the playground is enough to stop any park enthusiast in his or her tracks. It has five slides, rock walls and various climbing apparatuses, as well as a section of signs that teach children Spanish and sign language. See AMUSEMENT, Page 2C

There’s a chance, a pretty good one, that we’ll never decide what makes a good mom. Roughly 150 years of women holding jobs outside the home (remember those Civil War nurses?), and we’re still fighting the should-they-or-shouldn’t-they battle over working moms. We devour books about tiger moms and French moms and measure our styles against these archetypes. We scold moms for not breast-feeding, and then scold them for (gasp!) breast-feeding. We paint them as overbearing helicopters, even as we swap stories of A Mom Who Wouldn’t Put Down Her Cellphone Long Enough to Play With Her Kid. At the same time, no other figure is revered in our culture like Mom. We can all conjure a mom — maybe our own, maybe someone else’s — who fed us, loved us and shaped us like no other force in our lives. So while there’s no broadly accepted definition of good mothering, we’re surrounded — indeed, sustained — by examples. “I recently was found on Facebook by a friend from elementary school, and as much as I remember her, I remember her mother “The quality that even more clearly, makes a mom who was the first wonderful is French person I think I’d ever met,” says Hobalance. She is ma Sabet Tavangar, comfortable with author of “Growing Up Global: Raising both nurturing Children To Be at her child and Home in the World” (Ballantine Books). being clear, firm “Unlike so many imand following migrants in the early 1970s, this mom through." wasn’t trying to blend Fran Walfish in or give in to the Author of “The Self-Aware pressure of her chilParent: Resolving Conflict dren to be like everyand Building a Better Bond one else. With Your Child” “Bernadette,” Tavangar recalls, “always looked fashionable, wore light makeup and heels in the middle of the day, made gorgeous French dinners and never, ever spoke English with her children.” The moms who stay with us — in spirit or body or both — come into our lives when we’re starting to figure out who we want to be. We often hear the word “selfless” attached to mothering, but those moms who stay with us find a way of honoring both themselves and the ones they love. “My grandmother had that selfless piece,” says family psychotherapist Arden Greenspan-Goldberg, “but you always saw this other dimension where she would just get up and dance. She was always singing. She had a tremendous sense of self, and you could see her strength from within.” That grandmother — Tillie — shaped GreenspanGoldberg in countless ways, from her decision to practice therapy to the way she raised her own two children. “I think she taught me that a loving mother is someone who is really looking out for their kids,” she says. “Someone who’s in their corner and helping them find their way and find their passion and become the best version of the person they’re meant to be.” Greenspan-Goldberg says that as a child, she felt a deeper kinship with her grandmother than her mother. But as her mother aged and developed more of her own interests and pursuits, their bond deepened. “It’s almost like as she got older and more confident in her own skin, she was more able to be there for me as well,” she says. “I always told my children: Love yourself from the inside out, and don’t try to be someone you’re not. And I think that’s a message I got from my grandmother and, later, from my mother as well.” See SUPERMOMS, Page 2C

“I’ve never seen anything like that, and we go to a lot of different parks all the time,” J.J. said. “This is definitely the nicest one.” The Webscape is a sinisterlooking structure that sits at the entrance and is a favorite of Mary Bruin, 10, of Old Forge. “It makes you feel like you’re in a big spider web,” she said of the twisted cables that sit around a center pole and rise up into the sky. “It’s hard, too, because if you’re not careful you’ll get stuck, but that’s kind of a fun thing to do.” Even more fun is the fact that anyone inside the Webscape can make the entire structure shake if they want by moving their body back and forth, making for a trickier climb. The park also has a covered pavilion and a special play area for younger children. Adults also applaud the diver-

Tavangar, the mother of three, now advises governments, businesses and nonprofits around the world on cross-cultural issues — a pursuit that was, at least in part, set in place in childhood. “I was influenced by how exotic and glamorous and interesting (Bernadette) was, at the same time that she was friendly and funny and totally down-to-earth,” she says. “Her example might have

planted a seed for my own interest in learning French, in traveling and in becoming ‘that’ mom (who) was not afraid to be herself, while also remaining really interested in her kids and her neighborhood.” It was not the mother’s Frenchness, but rather her poise and pride in who she was that made such an impression. “There were two immigrant mothers in the neighborhood at the time, and my mother also carried, and continues to do so, herself with grace and was a great cook — even on weeknights,” she adds. “So it may have also validated my own mother’s

Marriage isn’t in the cards for elderly widower and his new girlfriend Dear Abby: I am a 70-year-old widower with three grown children. My girlfriend is 53. We dated for several months before she moved in with me. I thought maybe with her living here I might fall in love with her. It has not, and will not, happen. I hate to break her heart, but I know now that I will never ask her to marry me. I intend to remain single for the rest of my life. How do I bring closure to this relationship? What are the words? I’m lost. I was married for 40 years, and I just do not wish to be married again. How do I tell this nice lady? — In a Bind in Texas

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear In A Bind: Having the woman move in with you “hoping” you would fall in love with her was a huge mistake, and one you should not repeat. When you say what you need to say, have plenty of tissue handy and expect her to be tearful and angry. Start by saying, “We need to talk.” Tell her she has done nothing wrong, and it is not a failure on her part, but you realize that you do not wish to remarry. Explain that feeling as you do, it would be best if she moved. Offer to help her find a place if she has nowhere to go. You will be doing both of you a favor by being upfront NOW.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I am a young, recently married woman. My husband and I are at the point where we’re thinking about having kids. My brother married a close friend of mine not long after my wedding. My sister-in-law has a medical condition that may prevent her from having children. I am very close to my brother and his wife, and I can see the writing on the wall. She brought up surrogacy once in passing, as a possible alternative if she can’t have kids. If I’m asked to be the surrogate, what advice do you have? I would be willing to consider it, but only after my husband and I have had our own children. Would it be selfish of me to also expect some compensation for my time and the toll it will take on my body? I want to be ready if and

CRYPTOQUOTE

when I’m asked. What would be the best way to explain my reasoning? — Backup Mom in the Northwest Dear Backup Mom: You should explain your thinking to your sisterin-law as you have addressed them in your letter. It would be wise to consult an attorney who specializes in adoption/surrogacy to learn about the laws and procedures that apply in your state. Dear Abby: I am an adult male with a longtime problem. Whether it’s a sad or happy occasion, I start crying, sometimes sobbing. I am at a new point in my life where I can no longer avoid these situations. People think it’s not normal. Please don’t suggest I live with it. Is

there a magic pill to control this? — Big Crybaby in Brooklyn, N.Y. Dear Crybaby: There is no pill that can help you control those emotions that I know of. And I do not recommend you “live with it.” I do think, however, that if you discuss with a therapist what it is about sad and happy occasions that causes such an extreme reaction that you could get quickly to the bottom of it and learn to better control those emotions. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can let the past inform you without getting stuck there. Dwelling on the past would only prevent you from seizing the glorious opportunities of the here and now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If your duties feel exhausting, consider taking a break. There are times when doing nothing is far more productive than wearing yourself out. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even if your current situation isn’t ideal (and whose is?), you wouldn’t want to go back to where you were. Remind yourself of all you’re grateful for and all you’ve been able to create in your life. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A curtain closing doesn’t have to mean the end of the play, so don’t let it be a disappointing experience. More than likely, the curtain will open again after a complete change of scenery has occurred. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your ideas are stellar, but they may not be quite ready to present to the world. Keep honing them. Test them out on your core group of trusted cohorts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A task no longer brings you joy, and you’d just as soon not do it — but your high level of responsibility won’t allow you to bail, so you’re stuck. Change your attitude and push through. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The moon favors you now, and so will other people. The consummate egalitarian, you may not be extremely comfortable with favoritism, but you’d do well to take advantage of it.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you’re happy, you’ll be productive, effective and smart. When you’re not happy, nothing will go quite right. So put this day on the right track: Make yourself happy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Answers are forthcoming, so you may as well ask the big questions. If you ask questions that challenge your own fundamental assumptions, what you learn will rock your world. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Challenges will be solved by drawing on diverse ideas and knowledge. Cast your net wide. Talk to friends who have a background that is very different from yours. Research in unusual places. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You might be in a position to give criticism, and if it’s not all good, try to do it in person. Face to face is the best way to handle anything you have to share that’s less than complimentary. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are a compassionate teacher. This is a gift you’ll get the opportunity to share with others today. Seeing people blossom will be most rewarding. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 31). Success is easier for you to create than it once was. Having picked up some shortcuts, you’ll skip to what works. In June, you’ll rally the troops and lead them to victory. Relationships fortify you in July, and one in particular stands out. Pisces and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 2, 39 and 18.
