DALLAS – State Sen. Lisa Baker said a colleague once referred to Charlie Lemmond as the E.F. Hutton of the state Senate. “When Charlie Lemmond speaks, everybody listens,” the colleague said. That voice of wisdom, knowledge and compassion was silenced Wednesday night when Lemmond, 83, died. Public figures from the Wyoming Valley, statewide politicians and the Back Mountain community offered tributes and condolenc-

es Thursday upon learning the former Luzerne County judge, state senator and community activist died. They included Gov. Tom Corbett, U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, state lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle, state Superior Court President Judge Correale Stevens and community leaders. “This is a difficult time for all of us,” said John Lemmond, the senator’s son. “Dad touched so many people.”

‘Bowl for Life’ will benefit lung patient Tammy Cologie is awaiting confirmation for lung donor match.

By JOE DOLINSKY Times Leader Correspondent

On Saturday, Stanton Lanes in Wilkes-Barre will be the site of a bowling fundraiser to benefit lung transplant patient Tammy Cologie, as she hopes to strike awareness about her condition into the minds of those in attendance. The fundraiser, called “Bowl for Life,” was started as a result of the multitude of medical expenses the 48-year-old Hanover Township resident faces on a daily basis as she awaits confirmation that a donor match has been found. “Everyone in my family loved to bowl and many of us were even in leagues,” Cologie said. “It just made sense to pick bowling.” Battling emphysema for more than 18 years, it was a blood test Cologie took in April of 2011 that revealed her condition, called Alpha-1 Antitryspin Deficiency, or A1AD. The deficiency is a result of the body’s inability to produce enough of a protein which protects the lungs and liver from damage, thus making them extremely susceptible to infection. As a result, Cologie must make regular visits to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia every three months. “Regardless of being pre-orpost surgery, I need to make those visits for the rest of my life,” she said. In addition to paying travel costs, maintaining her health is a daily expense that includes

POLICE BLOTTER HANOVER TWP. – A WilkesBarre man was charged by township police with threatening to shoot another person with a firearm on Thursday. Robert Daniel Deleo, 19, of McLean Street, was arraigned by District Judge Joseph Halesey Deleo on charges of terroristic threats, firearms not to be carried without a license and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail. Police investigated a complaint about a man, identified as Deleo, with a gun threatening to shoot a resident in the 300 block of Hanover Village. Deleo drove away in a vehicle that was stopped by city police on Carey Avenue near Meyers High School. Police said they recovered a .357 Magnum with its serial number altered inside Deleo’s vehicle.

breathing treatments and a multitude of medications, not all of which are covered by her insurance. Cologie and her husband, John, reached out to HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization which assists transplant patients by helping them initiate fundraisers. “They helped us get everything started, but they also helped us get the media involved and generate flyers,” Cologie said. It’s unknown when Cologie might get the call that a donor was found. But despite the uncertain timetable, Cologie’s son, Cameron, said his mother has been optimistic from day one. “As soon as she got put on the transplant list, she put an emergency bag right next to the front door,” he said. “Then she handed me a list of people to call when word came in,” he said. As Cologie awaits the call that her lung transplant is ready, she hopes events like Saturday’s fundraiser will do more than just spread awareness about A1AD. “It’s not only about raising awareness about the disease, but to illustrate the need for people to be donors,” she said. unit and city police investigated.

WILKES-BARRE – Against the backdrop of a wall painted like an American flag, state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski rallied supporters Thursday night at the opening of the local field office for the re-election of President Barack Obama. Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, drew cheers from the crowd of nearly 75 people packed into the storefront space at 70 S. Main St. as he described a widening divide between the rich and poor and the urgency of what had to be done with the general election 158 days away to defeat the presumptive Republican challenger, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney . “I don’t have a problem with rich people,” he said, adding he wanted them to decide whether they loved the country more

interests. If they fail to do so, “We are headed for calamity,” she said. Mundy agreed with Bob Boyer, Wyoming mayor and chairman of the Luzerne County Democratic executive committee, who spoke before her, and said it was a “no-brainer” to reelect the president. The president has accomplished a lot in his first term and can do more with a second term, added Camille Patchoski, a reelection campaign team leader for Kingston. “His accomplishments so far have been impressive given the opposition from the Republicancontrolled Congress,” said Patchoski, 23, of Exeter. “Given another four years, I can only imagine how the nation will prosper.” The choice was also clear for Mario Balester, 28, of Mountain Top. “If Mitt Romney can’t run the state of Massachusetts, I don’t see how he can run the country any better than Obama can,” said Balester.

than their money. But from his viewpoint as an elected official, he said he was getting a good idea on how they would decide, especially based on the legislation presented by his counterparts in the Republican Party. “What I see happening is they love money more,” he said. He encouraged the volunteers, many of them in their 20s, to “find the energy” to work hard to re-elect the president and bring out the vote. By sheer numbers there are more poor and middle class people than there are wealthy, he said. “They know if we stick together, they can’t win,” said Pashinski. State Rep. Phyllis Mundy, DKingston, also pointed out the division between people and political parties. In her 22 years in Harrisburg, Mundy said, “I have never seen the polarization of America the same way as I do today,” she said. She called for the middle class to wake up and protect their own

OXON HILL, Md. — Snigdha Nandipati heard a few words she didn’t know during the National Spelling Bee, but never when she stepped to the microphone. Calm and collected throughout, the 14-year-old from San Diego spelled “guetapens,” a French-derived word that means ambush, snare or trap, to win the 85th Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday night.

In surprise move, Nuangola council demotes its president By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA – Councilman John Kochan, who was deposed as chairman of the sewer authority in January, was elected as president of borough council on Thursday night after his colleagues in a surprise move near the conclusion of the meeting voted out Regina Plodwick.

Plodwick had been serving her second term as president. The move came when Councilwoman Elaine Donahue made a motion to oust Plodwick. On a roll call vote, Donahue was supported by council members Joe Tucker, Ron Kaiser, Tony Deluca and Kochan. The lone no vote against the motion was cast by Councilman Ted Vancosky.

Mayor Norman Rule then conducted a reorganizational meeting at which Kochan was elected by a 4-3 vote. Tucker became vice president, succeeding Deluca, and Donahue, president pro-tempore, succeeding Vancosky. Donahue’s action came at the end of a public comment segment of the session. When Plodwick asked if there is no other business,

“I’ll entertain a motion to adjourn,” Donahue responded, “Yes I have something. I move that Regina Plodwick step down as president.” That set off a chain of events that saw Kochan and Tucker concur with the motion and Kochan become the new chairman of the seven-person body. Until the 2012 reorganizational meeting, Kochan had served as

Sharkey finishes sentence ormer Luzerne County court administrator William Sharkey F was released from federal custody

Wednesday after completing his 10-month prison sentence on a corruption charge. Sharkey, of Hazleton, was sentenced in June 2011 for stealing more than $70,000 in illegal gambling proceeds Sharkey that were supposed to be turned over to the county. He reported to prison on Aug. 1, 2011 Federal prosecutors said the money, seized by agents with the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, was turned over to Sharkey, who was supposed to deliver it to the treasurer’s office.

LOCAL Barnes says he’s no murderer The Edwardsville man was returned from Philadelphia to face local charges. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WYOMING – With a scar from a gunshot wound on his forehead, George Lee Barnes proclaimed his innocence in a deadly shooting at an Edwardsville apartment complex. Barnes, 22, of Main Street, Edwardsville, was returned Thursday from Philadelphia where he was captured on May 25 to face a criminal homicide charge in the killing of Daron Rhashawn Trollinger, 26, on May 16. State police and Edwardsville police allege Barnes shot Trollinger during a marijuana sale inside an apartment building at Eagle Ridge on Beverly Drive. Trollinger, of Roosevelt

Street, Edwardsville, was found with a gunshot wound to the chest behind the building. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Luzerne County Acting Coroner William Lisman. “No sir, I didn’t do it,” Barnes told reporters, adding he was the person who was shot. Barnes told investigators he was visiting a friend at the Eagle Ridge apartments when he was confronted by a Hispanic male with a handgun. Barnes claimed he was shot at during a struggle for the handgun that was pressed against his head. A round grazed Barnes’ forehead above his left eye and ear. He was treated at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. Barnes was released from the hospital at about 10:55 a.m. on May 17. At about the same time he left the hospital, state police allege in the criminal complaint,

Two witnesses cited in the complaint were with Trollinger inside the apartment building. They told investigators Trollinger was at the building to sell marijuana when Barnes rushed through a door with a handgun. The witnesses fled the building running across an athletic field when they allegedly heard gunfire, the complaint says.

Caputo appointed Dr. K. Rajender Reddy, a gastroenterologist at the University of Pennsylvania, to review Musto’s medical records and examine Musto if necessary.

New Century Travel had operated three bus lines from Wilkes-Barre: Antai Tours, Inc., Scott Street; Super Luxury Tours, Inc., East Market Street; and 2003 Coach Inc., Kidder Street. The Super Luxury Tours company had recently been under fire, after an accident in March 2011 in which a bus operated by the company was involved in a fatal accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.

An attorney for Super Luxury Tours did not return a phone message seeking comment. According to the Department of Transpiration, each of the three local bus companies is listed as “out of service” due to “unsatisfactory, unfit” conditions. “These aggressive enforcement actions against unsafe bus companies send a clear signal: If you put passengers safety at risk, we will shut you down,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in a press release. “Safety is and will always be our highest priority.” According to an “imminent hazard operations out-of-service order” issued to New Century Travel and the three local companies, the companies do not have “adequate safety management controls” and do not comply with hours of service and records ofdutyoradministerdrugandalcoholtesting programs. The companies do not ensure vehicles are properly and regularly inspected, repaired and maintained, nor do they have “adequate means of determining whether drivers are qualified to operate” their vehicles. The investigation into New Century Travel and its companies began in June 2011, according to the out-of-service order, and revealed widespread violations. The order cites the March 2011 fatal crash involving Super Luxury Tours that left two people dead, and that the 2003 Coach and Antai Tours companies were also unsatisfactory.

Even though they’ve had their issues this year, and there is no organization that hasn’t ever had an issue, I just feel that they are still one of the best organizations to get this more to the forefront than it already is,” Prashker-Thomas said. So, why make the three-hour trip when there are local fundraisers for the Komen foundation? “Where better than the nation’s capital to try to make an impact? … If I’m going to walk, I want it to mean something. Not that locally it wouldn’t, but I just feel that D.C. is the nation’s capital; it’s where things happen,” said Prashker-Thomas, who added that D.C. organizers told her she is the only person from Greater Wilkes-Barre or Scranton registered to participate. Prashker-Thomas’ battle began just after Thanksgiving in 2010, when she was misdiagnosed with

Stage IIA breast cancer. She sought a second opinion and, two weeks later, was correctly diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. But having lost her job and health insurance, she couldn’t afford treatment that might have stopped it from spreading. “My husband made $10 a year too much to qualify” for statefunded health insurance, she said. If all provisions of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act had been in force at the time, “I do think at least I could have gotten proper treatment or at least proper care at that point,” she said. So Prashker-Thomas did online research, seeking out experimental clinical trials that might have provided treatment to stop the cancer from progressing. A close friend of hers, John Griffin, referred her to the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah, so she traveled there with her husband, Michael, and daughter, Melanie. But a battery of tests revealed she didn’t qualify for any of the trials. When Prashker-Thomas did find another job and acquire health insurance, she underwent eight months of massive chemotherapy treatments. “I still worked, but there were days I couldn’t get out of bed,” she said. But subsequent tests showed that the cancer had spread to her bones and was inoperable. The Komen foundation revestibule.

Sandusky asks Superior Court to review, delay child sex case By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, facing trial next week on charges he sexually abused 10 boys, on Thursday asked a state appeals court to review his case and to delay the criminal proceedings against him.

The Superior Court’s online docket indicated Sandusky filed a petition for review but did not explain what he was seeking. Sandusky also asked the court to seal the document, which was not available after business hours. The judge in Sandusky’s criminal case, John Cleland, on Wednesday denied a defense request for a continuance and a sec-

ond request that would have given Sandusky the right to seek immediate Superior Court review of that decision. Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola, citing a gag order in the case, declined to comment on Thursday, as did a spokesman for the attorney general’s office.

Sandusky, 68, awaits trial on dozens of criminal charges alleging he abused the boys, some on campus, over a15-year period. He has repeatedly denied the allegations and tried to delay the trial, scheduled to begin with jury selection on Tuesday and opening statements June 11.

Lakkis alleges Lahovski and Chacke then retaliated against him by ordering him to perform duties other than those he would normally perform on patrol, including posting fliers on telephone poles and canvassing a neighborhood for the owner of stolen sunglasses. When Lakkis’ attorney requested the defendants cease their retaliation, they responded by ordering an internal investigation of Lakkis, the suit says. Chacke did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Thursday. Lahovski could not be reached for comment.

SCRANTON – A Forty Fort police officer has filed a federal lawsuit against the borough’s police chief and council president, alleging they violated his right to free speech. Peter Lakkis, no address listed, claims Police Chief Frederick Lahovski and Council President Joe Chacke issued an order in March that required Lakkis to seek written permission before he could speak to the mayor or any member of council. The suit, filed by attorney Cynthia Pollick, alleges the directive was made to preclude Lakkis from reporting unspecified misconduct allegedly committed by Lahovski. Lakkis said he sought permission on May 21 to speak to the mayor, but it was denied.

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County judge on Wednesday consolidated a lawsuit filed by the Northeastern Pennsylvania School Districts Health Trust against the Lake-Lehman School District, and another filing involving district teachers and support staff associations. Judge David Lupas combined the cases and scheduled one hearing in which Judge Lesa Gelb will hear preliminary injunctions in the case on June 18. In a suit filed this week, the health trust seeks to prevent the school district from withdrawing from its health insurance programs. On May 17 in county court, the Lake-Lehman Education Association and Lake-Lehman Educational Support Personnel Association filed an application for preliminary injunction seeking to prevent the district from withdrawing from the health trust. Requests by the health trust and both associations to have a judge grant their preliminary injunctions without a hearing were denied.

Controller Steve Flood says it is owed legal fees to fight a defamation suit. Judge Thomas Burke overruled preliminary objections filed by Luzerne County, its former commissioners, former Treasurer Michael Morreale, and the Luzerne County Retirement Board. The defendants had asked that the suit be dismissed based on “insufficient specificity” in the suit. The defamation suit, filed by former county pension fund money manager ASCO Financial Group Inc. over statements made by Flood on a November 2002 radio program, was discontinued in November, four months after Flood’s death. The Philadelphia-based Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis sued Flood and his partner and guardian, Heather Paulhamus, in 2010, seeking $205,696 in legal fees for representing him in the defamation suit. The county Retirement Board had initially voted to pay for Flood’s legal defense in the libel suit but reversed the decision shortly after Flood lost his bid for re-election in 2005. The latest suit, filed by lawyers at Brady & Grabowski, P.C., argues that the retirement board owed Flood a defense and representation.

Corbett inks death warrants ov. Tom Corbett has signed execution warrants for three men on G death row.

By MICHAEL BIESECKER Associated Press

Darien Houser was convicted of the 2004 killing of a Philadelphia warrant officer attempting to serve a warrant on Houser for failing to appear at his rape trial. John Koehler Jr. is on death row for persuading a teenager to kill Koehler’s girlfriend and her 9-year-old son in Bradford County in 1995. Willie Clayton was found guilty in 1986 of killing two Philadelphia men during separate robberies, two months apart. Pennsylvania has executed only three people — all of who chose to end their appeals — since the U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in 1976. The last was in 1999. Corbett’s office said Wednesday that he has signed 14 death warrants since taking office.

Wildfire keeps spreading

A massive wildfire in the New Mexico wilderness that already is the largest in state history spread in all directions Thursday, and experts say it’s likely a preview of things to come as states across the West contend with a dangerous recipe of wind, low humidity and tinder-dry fuels. The erratic Gila National Forest blaze grew overnight to more than 190,000 acres, or nearly 300 square miles, as it raced across the area’s steep, ponderosa pine-covered hills and through its rugged canyons. More than 1,200 firefighters are at the massive blaze near the Arizona border, which has destroyed 13 cabins and about a dozen outbuildings, fire information officer Iris Estes said. SEATTLE

Shooting spree toll at 6

A city already anxious about a recent spate of shootings was rattled further when a man walked into an arts cafe near a Seattle university and opened fire, fatally wounding four people. Police say he later killed a woman during a carjacking before shooting himself. As officers closed in during a widespread manhunt on Wednesday, the suspect put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. He died at a hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said. The five victims brought the number of homicides in Seattle so far this year to 21, matching the total for all of last year, and left city leaders wondering what could be done to stop the bloodshed.

Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney holds a news conference outside the Solyndra manufacturing facility Thursday in Fremont, Calif.

Day of stunts and stagecraft Both Romney and Obama seek edge on economy with events on opposite ends of the country.

By KASIE HUNT Associated Press

FREMONT, Calif. — Stunts, stagecraft, scripts — and a touch of the surreal — shaped the presidential campaign Thursday as Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama sought an edge on voters’ No. 1 issue, the economy. On one coast, Romney made a surprise trip to the former California headquarters of solar-panel manufacturer Solyndra to accuse Obama of currying favor with campaign supporters by giving a federal loan to the green energy company that later went bankrupt. “This half-a-billion-dollar taxpayer investment represents a serious con-

flict of interest on the part of the president and his team,” the Republican presidential candidate said as he stood outside the shuttered company and held it up as Exhibit A of presidential missteps on the economy. At roughly the same time across the country in Boston, Obama’s campaign staged its own event outside Massachusetts’ Statehouse to argue that Romney’s record as governor from 2003 to 2007 proves he is ill-prepared to manage the nation’s economy. “Romney economics didn’t work then and it won’t work now,” Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said at a news conference, pointing to a poor record of job creation, increased fees and the addition of $2.6 billion to the state’s debt on Romney’s watch. Axelrod’s appearance attracted several dozen Romney supporters, including many who protested loudly

by chanting “Where are the jobs?” and holding signs that said “Obama isn’t working.” Obama, himself, stayed above the fray of the day, embracing an opportunity to appear presidential as his Republican rival struggled to draw attention to his campaign. The Democratic incumbent was at the White House on Thursday. He appeared with former President George W. Bush, the man he repeatedly blames for the nation’s economic turmoil, for the unveiling of Bush’s official portrait during a rare, nonpolitical event in an election year. Obama kept a bipartisan tone during the unveiling. “We may have our differences politically, but the presidency transcends those differences. We all love this country,” Obama said as the last two Republican presidents, George W. Bush, and his father, George H.W. Bush, looked on.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — John Edwards’ campaign finance fraud case ended in a mistrial Thursday when jurors acquitted him on one charge and deadlocked on the other five, unable to decide whether he used money from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress while he ran for president and his wife was dying of cancer. The monthlong trial exposed a sordid sex scandal, but prosecutors couldn’t convince jurors the candidate masterminded a cover-up using about $1 million, and ultimately, jurors decided tawdry didn’t necessarily mean criminal. “While I do not believe I did anything illegal, or ever thought I was doing anything illegal, I did an awful, awful lot that was wrong and there is no one else responsible for my sins,” Edwards said on the courthouse steps. The jury’s decision came on a confusing day. The judge initially called jurors in to read a verdict on all six counts, before learning that they had only agreed to one. About an hour later, the jury sent the note to the judge saying it had exhausted its discussions. It was not immediately clear whether prosecutors would retry Edwards on the other counts. When the not guilty verdict was read, Edwards choked up, put a single finger to his lip and took a moment to compose himself. He turned to his daughter, Cate, in the first row and smiled. When the judge declared the mistrial and discharged the jury, Edwards hugged his daughter, his parents and his attorneys. Later, he thanked the jury and his family, even choking up when talking about the daughter he had with his mistress Rielle Hunter. He called Francis Quinn Hunter precious “whom I love, more than any of you can ever imagine and I am so close to and so, so grateful for. I am grateful for all of my children.” The jury reached a verdict on count three, which involved $375,000 given by elderly heiress Rachel “Bunny” Mellon in 2008. The other counts dealt with $350,000 Mellon gave in 2007, money from wealthy Texas attorney Fred Baron, filing a false campaign finance report and conspiracy.

SpaceX Dragon is home

Triumphant from start to finish, the SpaceX Dragon capsule parachuted into the Pacific on Thursday to conclude the first private delivery to the International Space Station and inaugurate NASA’s new approach to exploration. “Welcome home, baby,” said SpaceX’s elated chief, Elon Musk, who said the old-fashioned splashdown was “like seeing your kid come home.” He said he was a bit surprised to hit such a grand slam. “You can see so many ways that it could fail and it works and you’re like, ‘Wow, OK, it didn’t fail,”’ Musk said, laughing, from his company’s headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — The U.S. is heaping new pressure on Russia to change course and support international action in Syria, warning that intransigence by Moscow may lead to open civil war that could spill across the Middle East with devastating effects. Speaking on Russia’s doorstep in Denmark, Secretary of State Hillary Rod-

ham Clinton derided the Russian government for continuing to support Syrian President Bashar Assad, even after last week’s massacre of more than 100 people in the town of Houla. In pointed remarks Thursday, she said Russia’s position “is going to help contribute to a civil war” and rejected Russian officials’ insistence that their stance actually is helping to ease the crisis. On the first stop of a European tour, Clinton said Russia and China would have to be on board before the U.S. and other nations might engage in what could become a protracted conflict in support of a disorganized rebel force.

Russia, along with China, has twice vetoed U.N. Security Council sanctions against Syria. Russia is Syria’s closest ally other than isolated Iran, and Clinton said that without its support the international community is essentially frozen from taking concrete steps to end the violence. In Washington, despite revulsion over the Houla massacre, officials said the administration remains deeply concerned about the possible consequences of military action. But as the violence continues, they acknowledge that planning for some sort of intervention is under way.

Charles Lemmond Jr.

Barbara Boney

May 30, 2012

May 26, 2012

D. Lemmond Jr., longC harles time Pennsylvania State Sen-

ator and community leader, died Wednesday, May 30, 2012 in Commonwealth Hospice at St. Luke’s Villa, Wilkes-Barre, following a brief illness. He was 83. Born in Hazleton on January 17, 1929, to Charles D. and Ruth Zierdt Lemmond, Charles grew up in Forty Fort and attended Forty Fort schools, graduating as president of his senior class. After a stint in the United States Army of Occupation where he saw service in Italy, Charles attended Harvard with support from the GI Bill and majored in government. He excelled as the principal trumpet player in the Harvard Band and was spotlighted in an article in Collier’s Magazine entitled, “Harvard Never Loses at Half-time.” He received an A.B. from Harvard in 1952 and then went on to receive an L.L.B. from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Law. Charles served as a law clerk for The Honorable Max Rosenn and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar, the Luzerne County Bar and many years later, was honored to be admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. Following law school, Charles returned to the Wyoming Valley where he met and married Barbara Northrup. The couple lived briefly in Glen Summit and Forty Fort before moving to Dallas, where they have lived for more than 50 years and raised four children: Charles Lemmond, Austin, Texas; John Lemmond, Virginia Beach, Va.; Judith Lemmond, Dallas; and David Lemmond, New York City, N.Y. During his early years as a lawyer, Charles was a principal in the firm of Silverblatt and Townend, and he served as solicitor for a number of municipal entities, including the Lake-Lehman School District, Dallas Borough and Exeter Township. He was tapped by Luzerne County District Attorney Blythe Evans for the position of First Assistant District Attorney, and in that role he prosecuted and won a number of high profile criminal cases. In1980, he was appointed by Governor Dick Thornburgh to serve as a judge of the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas, where he was the Orphans’ Court Judge. When Senator Frank O’Connell announced his retirement from the Pennsylvania Senate, Charles was encouraged by Patrick J. Solano, Republican Party strategist, to throw his hat into the ring for the vacant Senate seat. After winning the Republican nomination in a hotly contested race, Charles went on to win the Special Election in a landslide. He was the Senator of the 20th Senatorial District from 1985 until his retirement in November 2006. Often referred to by his colleagues as “The Gentleman of the Senate,” Charles chaired the State Government Committee and was Vice Chair of the Judiciary Committee. He was a member on the Criminal Justice Commission and the Reapportionment Task Force of the National Conference of State Legislatures, and served as Vice Chair of the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency Board of Directors.

arbara J. Boney, 71, of Castleton Corners, N.Y., a licensed practiB cal nurse who loved spending time

His experience as a judge served the Commonwealth well when he was named to the Senate Impeachment Trial Committee that weighed the charges against Supreme Court Justice Rolf Larsen. He sponsored many pieces of legislation, with none providing more personal satisfaction than the law requiring hearing screening for newborns. Charles was an active and involved participant in many community organizations. He was a ThirtyThird Degree Mason, a member of the Caldwell Consistory, and served as Potentate of the Nobility of Irem Shriners in 1979. Other community service included being a Life Member of Wyoming Seminary’s Board of Trustees and an advisory board member of both the Salvation Army and Penn State University’s Wilkes-Barre Campus. He was a Lay Leader of the First United Methodist Church of WilkesBarre, and over a period of years served in many leadership roles in the Wyoming Conference of the United Methodist Church. Charles’s commitment to his community was acknowledged in the citation for an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Humane Letters awarded him by Wilkes University in 2000. Then-Wilkes President Dr. Christopher N. Breiseth cited him as “a man of unblemished integrity and broad popularity” who had applied his “judicial temperament to the cause of good government.” Further acknowledgement of his good works was provided by Misericordia University in the naming of its campus performing arts center as the Lemmond Theater. In addition to his wife and children, Charles is survived by a brother, George H. Lemmond, Atlanta; daughter-in-law, Tracy Lemmond; son-in-law, Pedro Elizondo; grandchildren, Courtney, Gretchen, Carter and Kendrick Lemmond; cousin, Carl Heastand, Hazleton; and eight nieces and two nephews. Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday, June 6, 2012 at 11 a.m. at the Dallas United Methodist Church, 4 Parsonage St., Dallas. The Reverend Robert G. Wood and the Reverend Charles F. Gommer will officiate. Interment will be made in Memorial Shrine Park, Carverton, at the convenience of the family. Friends may call Tuesday, June 5, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Harold C.

We talk and laugh with each other, in a place beyond words. We still touch each other, on a level beyond touch. We share time together in a place, where time stands still. We are still together, at a level called love. But I cry alone for you, in a place called reality. -Richard Lopensky

am sure of my interests: chemistry, international relations and politics. As of now, I am thinking of pursuing engineering, specifically chemical engineering. What has been the biggest challenge you have faced? Coping with the divorce of my parents. When they divorced, my entire world turned upside down. However, as time went on, I became very close to my mother and sister, and they are the reason I am the strong young woman I am today. Do you have a hidden talent or something even close friends don’t know about you? I absolutely love to write. I will write anything, from a research paper to a novel, quite happily. I am the only student in the class who actually jumps for joy when an essay is assigned! I am also very interested in politics and the current presidential campaign. Also, other cultures fascinate me, and I hope to travel the entire world some day. Community: Berwick Family: Mother Carmela Shiptoski, sister Maria Shiptoski

Baker: ‘Second father’ Lemmond is survived by his wife, Barbara, daughter, Judy, and sons Chuck, John and David. As the Lemmond family gathered at their Lehman Avenue home in Dallas Thursday, Baker said she had lost her “second father.” Driving home from Enid, Okla. where she watched her son, Carson, compete in the Junior College World Series for Lackawanna College, Baker reflected on her mentor and talked about her love and admiration for Lemmond. “I feel so fortunate to have had such a deep personal and professional relationship with him my entire life,” said Baker, who was 4 years old when her family moved next door to the Lemmond home in Dallas in 1965. “I learned so much from him and I respected him all my life.” Baker served as Lemmond’s chief of staff from 1985-95 when she left to join the staff of Gov. Tom Ridge. She pointed to several projects the Republican senator worked on to benefit the region, including the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, the Tunkhannock Bypass and the Back Mountain Regional Recreation Complex. Baker said Lemmond lobbied Ridge to ensure the funding for the arena wasn’t lost while the battle for an Interstate 81exit was being waged. “He always set high standards for his staff and himself,” Baker said. “He believed the higher you set your standards, the higher the results. He never wanted to settle for mediocre.”

knew Lemmond for decades and said his substance and advice were “immeasurable.” “I’m sad over my friend,” Solano said of Lemmond’s passing. “I have never known a more honorable and knowledgeable guy.” Solano said Lemmond never sought the spotlight, but when he did get behind a microphone, he was always prepared and had a lot to say. “He was never a glory seeker,” Solano said. “He affected many laws, he made things better. He always had solid, good common sense.” Solano said when he was Luzerne County Republican Party chairman, Lemmond was a member of the Young Republicans. “We will have a major void in just the wisdom that always came Community remembers Republican Party leader Pat from Charlie,” Solano said. “WisSolano of Pittston Township dom he had on all issues.” Michael MacDowell, president

of Misericordia University, said Lemmond relished that he shared his birthday with Benjamin Franklin. “I’ve thought a lot about Charlie today; there’s so much to say,” MacDowell said. “He was a true gentleman – sometimes that’s missing in politics today. He always made decisions that he thought were best for everybody.” MacDowell said Lemmond was proud that he was able to cross the political aisle and get things done. Lemmond had a great understanding of democracy and history, MacDowell said. “He genuinely cared about people,” he said. “He looked out for people and institutions in the area.” Lemmond was noted for introducing people. “It was of his most endearing characteristics,” MacDowell

said. “My wife and I visited him in the hospital recently. Charlie sat up and said, ‘Let me introduce you to my nurse.’ He treated everybody with great respect.” Lemmond had an eclectic side, as well, having played first trumpet in the Harvard band. He loved American jazz music. When Misericordia opened the Lemmond Theater, MacDowell said the Boston Brass played in honor of Lemmond. “If you scratched Charlie, he was a mile deep,” MacDowell said. “He loved music, athletics, faith and he was brilliantly educated. How many Forty Fort High School graduates went to Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania Law School?” Former state Rep. Kevin Blaum, a Democrat, left the state legislature the same year as Lemmond – 2006. “Simply put, he was a great

Helped community library Ernie Ashbridge, a member of the Back Mountain Library Board of Directors and chairman of the Auction Advisory Committee, said Lemmond and his wife, Barbara, were great supporters. “It’s a shame” Ashbridge said of Lemmond’s death. “It’s such a tremendous loss to the community. He did a lot for everybody.” Ashbridge said Lemmond was involved with the library for decades. “I know he was involved longer than me and I’ve been there 52 years,” Ashbridge said. “It was very dear to his heart.” Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas Judge Dick Hughes worked with Lemmond at the Silverblatt & Townend law firm. “His passing is tragic for all who knew him and for the community,” Hughes said. “Everybody’s lives were affected positively by Charlie Lemmond. He personified integrity;

HEARING

nosis for hearing impairments was 18 months, but with Siemenski’s program infants were diagnosed at birth and fit with hearing aids by three months. Not long after the program at Nesbitt began, Lemmond visited Siemenski’s office; he was intrigued by an infant having a hearing aid and asked about the program. The quest to pass a statewide infant hearing screening bill began. Lemmond was able to get a pilot program going in 1996 that allocated funds for 20 hospitals across the state including Nesbitt. The results from that program were enough to lead to the bill gaining unanimous approval in both chambers in 2001. Siemenski, whose office is in Kingston, lamented Lemmond’s loss on Thursday and said hun-

dreds of thousands of children in Pennsylvania are better off today because of him. A picture from the bill signing event sits on Siemenski’s desk with a pen used at the proceeding. Siemenski also has a note from Lemmond that says: “It was you Lou. It couldn’t have been done without you.” But Siemenski has a different take. “He was wrong. It couldn’t have been done without Charlie Lemmond,” he said. On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, R-Chester, issued a statement on Lemmond’s passing that referenced the initiative. “Charlie was a true gentleman in every sense of the word, a man who always wore an honest smile. He loved the people of the

20th District, and he served them with integrity. His work to ensure that Pennsylvania newborns are screened for hearing loss is a legacy for which he will always be remembered,” Pileggi said. Over the course of more than two decades in the Senate, Lemmond left an impact. At the local level, Lemmond supported governors’ nominations of Democrats to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas. At the state level, he bucked the national GOP position in 1989 when he voted against a law that tightened abortion restrictions in Pennsylvania. Among Lemmond’s legislative accomplishments: authoring a law that allows district justices and judges to consider an adult defendant’s juvenile record in determining bail; a law imposing

Schweiker as the governor signed into law a bill mandating hearing screenings for all infants born in the state. At the time, in an interview with The Times Leader, Lemmond said, “Unless you or someone you know or work with has faced up to the challenge (of hearing impairment), you don’t know how important it is (to detect and treat the problem).” He was among the thousands of state residents dealing with hearing loss, though his was caused by life factors, not something he was born with. Lemmond wore hearing aids for decades to offset damage

caused by exposure to artillery fire and other explosives in his vicinity during his 18 months of service in the U.S. Army. Lemmond said he also likely sustained hearing loss from hunting and loud music – he played in bands from fourth grade until graduating from law school. Also sitting next to Schweiker at that December 2001 bill signing was Dr. Louis Siemenski, who was instrumental in the bill’s creation. In 1994, the audiologist from Shavertown pioneered a screening program for hearing loss in newborns at Nesbitt Hospital in Kingston. The hospital auxiliary donated the equipment and he volunteered his services to ensure all babies born at the hospital had a hearing screening. At the time the average age of diag-

he was a role model for so many of us.” Stevens, the state Superior Court president judge, described Lemmond as a “wonderful, kind and intelligent man.” Stevens said when he was in the state House of Representatives, Lemmond was in the Senate and the two worked together on several initiatives. “His presence in the community will be missed,” Stevens said. “He always had the best interests of the area at heart. He never had his own agenda.” Tribute from governor Corbett said he and his wife, Sue, have lost a friend. “Charlie was a friend to all of Pennsylvania,” Corbett said. “He was a great leader who had great common sense. He had the ability to look at an issue and explain it clearly.” Corbett said he never heard a cross word come from Lemmond’s lips. “He will be sorely missed,” the governor said.

He also wrote Pennsylvania’s living-will law. Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati lauded Lemmond’s life and career on Thursday. “He was highly respected by his colleagues here in the Senate for his honesty, fairness and dedication to doing the right thing for the people of Pennsylvania. Charlie will be remembered for numerous accomplishments, including helping community organizations, reforming elder laws to protect the dignity of senior citizens, and championing living will legislation.”

Billions wasted because of repeat hospital admissions AS WE enter an era of rapidly paced change in health care delivery and payment, hospital readmissions are gaining increasing attention at the national, state and individual hospital levels, both as a quality indicator and as a way to save money. A new report issued last month by the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council found that two of every 15 adult hospital stays in the state in 2010, or 13.5 percent, were followed by readmission within 30 days. More than a third of those, 5.6 percent, were specifically because of an infection or a complication related to the original visit. The report contains some of the most comprehensive research yet done on readmissions. For Medicare patients in this state for only one year, 2009, our council reported that payments for readmission cases reached nearly a half billion dollars. The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission has estimated that nationally, potentially preventable readmissions might account for as much as $12 billion per year in medical costs. That is one reason the federal government is scheduled to implement a new policy later this year, reducing Medicare reimbursements to hospitals that have an excess of preventable readmissions for certain conditions. If the program had begun in 2010, half of all hospitals in the country would have been affected. The phrase “preventable readmissions” is worth noting, because not all repeat visits

ecently, I took an interest in promoting good old-fashioned conversation. This interest was fueled by reading an opinion piece in The New York Times called “The Flight From Conversation,” by psychologist Sherry Turkle. In it, she writes: “We live in a technological universe in which we are always communicating. And yet we have sacrificed conversation for mere connection.” After I read the column, I thought of a way that I might promote conversation: When out with my friends or family for lunch, I try persuading them to make that lunch texting-free. Having texting-free lunches served me, because my pet peeve was companions finding it necessary to send and receive text messages while out with me; however, texting-free lunches with family or friends provided the means to just have nice chats together.

“I think this is a good thing,” said Willie Golden. “We hope something positive comes of this, just like everybody else here tonight. “Maybe my grandson’s death will give it a push.” About 130 people gathered in the GAR library to talk about what causes tragic incidents like Winstead’s death and what can be done to prevent more in the future. Working in small groups with facilitators, the diverse group of attendees came up with many problems they see in the community. The top three reasons for violent crime among youth were: lack of effective parenting, peer pressure, and lack of morals. The Rev. Shawn Walker and The Rev. Michael Brewster came up with the idea for “Building Bridges” and Mayor Tom Leighton endorsed the project. “We all want to make this city a better place to live and raise our families,” Walker said. “We’re here to talk about the issues and find solutions.” Walker said in the days following Winstead’s death, people were asking what can be done to prevent another incident. “The time for rhetoric is over,” he said. “We have to move from rhetoric to real lasting positive change.” Brewster used a quote to exemplify the program’s theme of building a community one bridge at a time. “I am one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but I can do something and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do,” Brewster quoted Edward Everett Hale. Brewster then told the group, “You are all here doing your something.” Office Phil Myers, the city’s crime prevention officer, gave a brief presentation on crimes in the city. He said theft is the top crime committed in the city and he informed the group of crime prevention programs offered to help residents. But Brewster put the pro-

to continue the manual labor that sustained him for 35 years. “I need to go from hands on to management,” he said, “I’ve helped guys get into the business, I have the ability to teach. But no matter what you know these days, you have to have some college education.” Seymour also said he runs into problems because he received a general discharge, “neither honorable nor dishonorable,” and was hoping to learn how to change that during seminar after lunch.

nies married gay couples federal benefits given to heterosexual married couples, including the ability to file joint tax returns. The ruling came in two lawsuits, one filed by the Boston-based legal group Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) and the other by state Attorney General Martha Coakley. “For me, it’s more just about having equality and not having a system of first- and second-class marriages,” said plaintiff Jonathan Knight, a financial associate at Harvard Medical School who married Marlin Nabors in 2006. “I think we can do better, as a country, than that,” said Knight, a plaintiff in the GLAD lawsuit. Knight said the Defense of Marriage Act costs the couple an extra $1,000 a year because they cannot file a joint federal tax return. The ruling also drew the attention of John Dawe, Executive Director of the NEPA Rainbow Alliance. "We applaud the court’s ruling that DOMA treats same-sex couples as second-class citizens – and that’s a violation of fundamental rights,” said Dawe. “This is one step towards equality for all families, but we still have a long way to go." Opponents of gay marriage blasted the decision. “This ruling that a state can mandate to the federal government the definition of marriage

gram’s objective in perspective. “It’s easy to identify problems,” he said. “It’s not so easy to find the solutions.” Walker said bringing neighbors together to discuss issues and to get to know each other can only benefit the city. “I like what I’m hearing and that’s conversation,” walker said. “People are talking and working together to find ways to resolve these issues.” Raphael Mosely, an 8-year-old student from St. Nick’s/St. Mary’s, attended the meeting with his mother, Denise. They live in

Pittston, but Mrs. Mosely works in Wilkes-Barre. She wanted to participate in the program and her son wanted to come along. “Raphael was very involved in our group,” said Shivaun O’Donnell, one of the facilitators. “He brought a different perspective to our group.” Raphael said he wants to see more evening basketball for kids. He also saw the importance of “Building Bridges.” “I think it’s really good,” Mosely said of the program. “It’s good to teach people and kids about what’s right and wrong. If people

got along, we would have a better community.” Leighton said the key is to bring back the neighborhoods. Brewster said it’s important to get to know your neighbors. “This movement can only move with your feet,” Walker said. “Working together will make this last.” Lenny Cornish, another facilitator, said he has seen similar programs come and go in the city. “I hope this one doesn’t fade away,” he said. “We need this program more than ever.”

for the sake of receiving federal benefits, we find really bizarre, rather arrogant, if I may say so,” said Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute. The Most Rev. Joseph C. Bambera, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton, acknowledged he was not completely familiar with all the details of the ruling given that it just was issued Thursday. “Notwithstanding, we live in an age where the idea of marriage and the family is constantly being challenged,” Bambera said. “But, as Catholics, we believe that the sacrament of marriage is a faithful, exclusive, lifelong, loving union of a man and a woman.” Since Congress passed the law, eight states have approved gay marriage, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maryland, Washington state and the District of Columbia. Maryland and Washington’s laws are not yet in effect and may be subject to referendums. Last year, President Barack Obama announced that the Department of Justice would no longer defend the constitutionality of the law. After that, House Speaker John Boehner convened the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group to defend it. The legal group argued the case before the appeals court. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the appeals court ruling is “in concert with the president’s views.” Obama, who once opposed gay marriage, declared his unequivocal personal support

on May 9. Carney wouldn’t say whether the government would actively seek to have the law overturned if the case goes before the Supreme Court. The 1st Circuit said its ruling would not be enforced until the Supreme Court decides the case, meaning that same-sex married couples will not be eligible to receive the economic benefits denied by the law until the high court rules. That’s because the ruling only applies to states within the circuit — Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and New Hampshire — and Puerto Rico. Only the Supreme Court has the final say in deciding whether a law passed by Congress is unconstitutional. Until Congress passed the law, “the power to define marriage had always been left to individual states, the appeals court said in its ruling. “One virtue of federalism is that it permits this diversity of governance based on local choice, but this applies as well to the states that have chosen to legalize same-sex marriage,” Judge Michael Boudin wrote for the court. “Under current Supreme Court authority, Congress’ denial of federal benefits to same-sex couples lawfully married in Massachusetts has not been adequately supported by any permissible federal interest.” Several times in its ruling, the appeals court noted that the case will probably end up before the high court, at one point saying, “only the Supreme Court can fi-

nally decide this unique case.” Carl Tobias, a constitutional law professor at the University of Richmond, said the court kept its ruling narrow, declaring unconstitutional only the section of the law on federal benefits. Although supporters and opponents of gay marriage may depict the ruling as the beginning of the end of the law, he said, the Supreme Court is likely to limit its ruling to the benefits issue as well. “I think lawyers could argue that the arguments are equally applicable to the other sections of the law, but you have to stretch. You have to take those out of the context in which it’s being applied, and I don’t think the court will do that,” Tobias said. During arguments before the court last month, a lawyer for gay married couples said the law amounted to “across-the-board disrespect.” The couples argued that the power to define and regulate marriage had been left to the states for more than 200 years before Congress passed the law. Paul Clement, a Washington, D.C., attorney who defended the law on behalf of the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, argued that Congress had a rational basis for passing the Defense of Marriage Act in1996, when opponents worried that states would be forced to recognize gay marriages performed elsewhere. The group said Congress wanted to preserve a traditional and uniform definition of marriage and has the power to define terms used to federal statutes to distribute federal benefits.

identified by sources as Elijah Yusiff, surrendered at the district attorney’s office at about 3 p.m. and appeared before Tina Polachek Gartley. The hour-long hearing was closed to the media and the public. Under state law, the hearing would have been opened if Yusiff were charged with homicide, voluntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, arson, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, rape, kidnapping, robbery and crimi-

nal attempt and conspiracy of any of the offenses. Since the hearing was closed, Yusiff was not petitioned to county juvenile court with any of those serious felonies. Yusiff told reporters the night Tyler died he heard a gunshot and saw a man driving away in a red Ford. It is not known due to the closed hearing and sealed juvenile documents if Yusiff told investigators the same story. “I can’t say much because of his

age and the charges that were filed,” Salavantis said. “The hearing was closed and the records were sealed because of his age and the nature of the charges. “The case is coming together,” Salavantis added. “We know the facts of the case.” A Facebook page in memory of Tyler was buzzing with activity since it became known that there has been an arrest. Salavantis did not rule out additional charges.

Stuck in military jargon Pennsylvania National Guard Employment Outreach Coordinator 1st Lt. Gregory Kuleba said one of the biggest problems he finds in connecting veterans with employers is a matter of translation – from military jargon in describing skills to civilian employer needs. “Service members speak Italian, Employers speak French,” he quipped. “I can see the value and potential of an MOS (Military Occupation Specialty),” Kuleba said. “But employers can’t understand the specialization.” Listing Army expertise as “Air defense C4I tactical operations center enhanced operator maintainer” on a resume, for example, will not tell the average civilian employer all the skills learned to fill that position. Part of the outreach job, Kuleba said, is to show vets how to write a resume that gets essential skills across to employers. Despite having only three people covering the entire state, Kuleba said the program can boast a lot of success since he got the job in January. “We’ve gotten about 80 people jobs so far,” he said. “And we’ve helped

to kill the mosquito larvae before it can reach the adult stage, he said, so areas with standing water are treated with larvacide, which can continue to kill for 30 days after an application. Larvaciding is focused on hotspots – areas known for holding stagnant water or those places that have produced positive results in the past. In Luzerne County, Stredny said towns such as Wyoming, West Wyoming, Plains, Pittston, Hanover and Nanticoke have plenty of hotspot areas. Trapping allows Stredny to further focus larvacide applications. The traps are baited with the stinkwater brew, and Stredny collects mosquitoes, kills them with dry ice (which preserves the virus, if present) and ships them to DEP’s lab in Harrisburg for testing. “Killing them in the larval stage is our top priority. We want to get the population down so the adults don’t come off,” he said. “If we get a site with more than one positive test, we’ll bring in the truck and spray for adults as well.” Spray application available There is a spray application to kill adult mosquitoes, but Stredny said it’s not as effective as larvaciding because it only kills the insects while they are flying. Mosquitoes rest under leaves, Stredny said, and as a result avoid the spray. Stredny is already encountering adult mosquitoes in some areas, such as the Moonlight Drive-In located in West Wyoming. “It’s a nightmare of a site because it holds an acre of standing water at times,” he said. “I was at another hotspot on Wednesday and there were a ton of adult mosquitoes flying around.” Catch basins and storm drains present another challenge not only with the sheer number in the county, but the ripe breeding conditions they present. Stredny maps every storm drain and catch basin by municipality and treats them with

set up 50 job fairs” for veterans. The next job fair is at Fort Indiantown Gap July 10. The bulk of veterans seeking help landing a job are in the age range of 28 to 34 years old, Kuleba said. Veterans of other generations have benefited from efforts to get them educated and jobs. ‘52-20’ benefits After service as a medic in the Pacific, World War II veteran Sam Greenberg said he and other vets were given “52-20”: $20 a week for 52 weeks, along with some medical care and a chance to go back to school under the newly minted GI Bill. The Wilkes-Barre native said the waiting list was long but he got into pre-med school, couldn’t get into medical school, and switched to engineering, eventually setting up his own business. Greenberg now is coordinator for the Northeastern Pennsylvania Veterans Multicare Alliance, which set up Thursday’s boot camp in collaboration with the state department of military and veterans affairs’ office of veteran’s affairs. As hard as it was to get a job following World War II, Greenberg said it’s even tougher now. “The economy has a great deal to do with it,” he said, citing his own business as an example. “My firm went from 11 people to three people,” which was enough of a drop for him to call it quits. The trick for veterans, Kuleba said, is to network, and that’s what the National Guard employment outreach is for. “If we can’t help them with a particular problem, we can connect them with someone who can. For more information on the National Guard outreach: pa.ng.mil/offices/Employmentoutreach.

LAST HUMAN CASES According to DEP’s website, the last human case of West Nile Virus in Luzerne County was in 2003 when three cases were reported. Mosquito season runs from April to October and Luzerne Conservation District staff will conduct spraying and sample collections from traps during that time. For more information, visit www.westnile.state.pa.us.

S T E P S YO U C A N TA K E Residents can join the battle against West Nile Virus by taking the following steps: • Empty containers that collect and hold water (including tires, tin cans, buckets, tarps, etc.). • Empty and change water in bird baths, flower pot trays, cemetery urns, pet dishes, rain barrels and wading pools. • Clean debris from rain gutters and keep swimming pools treated and circulating. • Drain or fill puddles with dirt. • Stock ornamental ponds with fish which will consume mosquito larvae. • Use mosquito repellents containing DEET when necessary and follow label directions and precautions carefully, especially with children. • Make sure window and door screens are “bug tight.” • Horse owners are encouraged to contact their veterinarian for more information on the Equine WNV Vaccine.

a larvacide brickette that is effective for 150 days. Peak mosquito season Despite an early positive test this year, Stredny said he won’t know what’s in store for Luzerne County until the peak of mosquito season hits in August and September. Until then Stredny and his crew will continue spraying hotspots, collecting samples and baiting traps with the stinkwater brew. “We’ve really become efficient with this and so far there hasn’t been a human case in the county since I took over the program three years ago,” Stredny said. “My goal is to keep West Nile Virus out of the human population and we’re getting better at doing that.”

Tournament begins today with pool play in State College.

By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

Holy Redeemer has been one of the most dominant volleyball programs in the area since its inception in the Catholic Schools merger in 2007. Whether being boys or girls teams, the Royals have taken care of business in the Wyoming Valley Conference and advanced to the PIAA Championships every year. Today, the boys will begin a quest to become the best team in Pennsylvania when they begin the PIAA Championships at Penn State University’s Multisport Indoor Facility. The event begins today with pool play, which will consist of a match against the three other teams. The matches consist of three games with the first team to two game wins earns the victory. Four matches will be going on at once beginning at 9 a.m. The second pool play match is set for 12:20 p.m. and the final match is slated for 3:20 p.m. The Royals have advanced to the final eight for the fourth straight season. Last year, the Royals were in a stacked pool with Deer Lakes and Saegertown, the state champion and runner-up, respectively. Redeemer still went 1-2 in that pool but didn’t advance past the first day. The Royals are in a groove right now having finished the regular season unbeaten and haven’t lost a single game since April 9 and that includes the postseason. Only six times since then have the Royals allowed more than 20 points in a game. While the two finalists from a year ago didn’t advance to this weekend’s event, Redeemer still has work cut out. The Royals will play in Pool B along with District 7 champion Ambridge, District 3 runner-up Dover and D10 champion Cochranton. The top two teams from the two pools will advance to the state semifinals slated for Saturday morning at 9. Ambridge has advanced to the finals twice in the last five years, including winning it all in 2009. According to records since 2002, Dover and Cochranton haven’t won a state title. District 3 opponents are always tough as well with eight of the last 10 state titlists coming from the area in the middle of the state. According to the latest Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association Top Ten, Ambridge is third, while Dover is fifth and Cochranton is sixth. The Royals are

SCRANTON — This time, Holy Redeemer’s district championship drama came before the game. Looking to shake off a tough loss in the title game in each of the past two seasons, the Royals entered Thursday’s contest with an unexpected issue on the mound. Starter Cody Tsevdos had injured his pitching hand sliding into third base during Wednesday’s semifinal win over Hanover Area. But it wasn’t until Thursday morning that the pain really set in. “I woke up and I could barely move it,” Tsevdos said. “I iced it all day before I came (to the game) and started throwing, and it felt all right. In the beginning, I wasn’t sure (if I was going to be able to pitch).” The Royals even warmed up a second starting pitcher before the game. As it turned out, they didn’t even need a reliever. Tsevdos threw a complete-game two-hitter to help Holy Redeemer capture its first District 2 Class 2A baseball championship, beating Holy Cross 10-3 on Thursday at Connell Park. Though the senior southpaw couldn’t bat because of his hand, his

teammates did more than enough hitting to secure the title, slamming 16 hits and scoring in six out of seven innings. Every Redeemer player that stepped to the plate on the day finished with at least one hit. It was exactly the type of perform-

with a seven-run lead in the final frame. “Nope. No relaxing today,” Redeemer coach Chris Ritsick said with a grin. “I’ve learned my lesson in this game.” For Ritsick, it was his fourth trip to the district final, with the first one coming with program predecessor Bishop Hoban in 2006. This will be the first trip to the state tournament for the coach or the program. Redeemer will face the loser of today’s District 4 Class 2A title game on Monday at a time and D2 site to be determined. To get there, the Royals turned in what Ritsick said was their most complete performance of the season. Will Cavanaugh, one of eight seniors in the championship lineup, topped all players with three hits and four RBI. All three singles came with two outs and drove in at least one run. “That’s just deflating for the other team,” Ritsick said. “That really pulled us through today.” Fellow seniors Joel Peterlin, Dom Policare, Eric Ringsdorf and Christian Choman had two hits apiece. Choman reached base in all five plate appearances, drawing three walks. Junior Mike Kosik added two hits of his own. It was more than enough support for

Let’s hope it’s a success and we see more of it in Timothy Bradley at +$350. Follow Eckstein on Twitter at www.twitter.com/ the future, I for one love Sunday night racing! vegasvigorish.

Meet the Mets, a surprising cast of no-names Stacked with Triple-A players, New York is hanging in one of the toughest divisions. By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Few expected much from the New York Mets this season. Then again, these aren’t exactly the Mets everybody expected to see. Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Mike Baxter. Jeremy Hefner. Vinny Rottino, Rob Johnson, Jordany Valdespin, Omar Quintanilla, Mike Nickeas. Who are these guys and how do they keep winning big league ballgames? Two months into the season, the no-name Mets are one of baseball’s biggest surprises. Led by David Wright, Johan Santana and a mystery cast of supporting

characters, New York is 28-23 and only 11⁄2 games out of first place in the tightly bunched NL East. “Obviously, we’re looking forward to getting some of our frontline players back. But what these guys have shown us is that they can play here,” second-year manager Terry Collins said. Turning to a string of subs and fill-ins, the Mets are almost a reallife version of “Major League,” the hilarious movie about a band of baseball rejects who carry the Cleveland Indians to the playoffs. About the only thing missing is Bob Uecker behind the microphone — or Wesley Snipes running sprints in his pajamas. No joke, though: New York is playing sound fundamental baseball. “I think our minor league staff has done a great job of getting these guys prepared to come here,” said Collins, who also deserves plenty of praise. “I think

one of the things that helps out is when they walk in that locker room and they look around and they see friends. They see guys they know. I think it makes a big difference.” New York is minus three injured regulars: left fielder Jason Bay, shortstop Ruben Tejada and catcher Jose Thole. Starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey is out for the season following elbow ligament replacement surgery. Add in the injuries to backups Ronny Cedeno and Justin Turner, and New York has used six shortstops already this season following the departure of All-Star Jose Reyes as a free agent in December. “Everybody said we didn’t have depth. I think that’s decent depth. So, guys coming up and performing is great to see,” chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said. “Our farm system was better than anybody thought.”

With the Mets in dire need of early reinforcements, unheralded youngsters and minor league journeymen have stepped in and produced immediately. Nieuwenhuis came up from Triple-A Buffalo when center fielder Andres Torres was injured on opening day and has kept himself in the lineup by hitting .294. Baxter, who grew up 10 minutes from where Citi Field stands, won the final bench spot in spring training and did so well as a pinch-hitter that he’s now batting leadoff against righthanders. Miguel Batista earned a win in Pelfrey’s place and so did Hefner, punctuating his first major league victory with a stunning home run. “The bus from Buffalo arrived today, as it normally does,” general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday. Valdespin’s first career hit was

Scherzer helps Tigers to win vs. Red Sox Kemp heads back to 15-day DL

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers placed center fielder Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday for the second time this month because of a left hamstring strain. And this time, the training staff is going to make sure there are no recurrences when he returns to the lineup. Kemp went 1 for 4 with a double in two games since being reinstated from the disabled list on Tuesday. He left Wednesday night’s game against Milwaukee after scoring all the way from first base on a first-inning double by Andre Ethier. “He has a little bit of swelling in the same area, as well as a new strain in a higher part of that hamstring,” said Sue Falsone, who is in her first year as the club’s head athletic trainer after spending the previous five seasons as the team’s physical therapist. “They’re both Grade-1s, which means that there’s not a lot of muscle fiber tear. It’s the lowest grade of a muscle strain, so that’s good news. But having multiple strains in one muscle, obviously it’s going to be a little bit longer from a rehab standpoint. So we’re just going to take it day-by-day.” Falsone said the best-case scenario for Kemp is four weeks before he can play again. He spent two weeks on the disabled list the first time the hamstring bothered him and when he got back to the dugout after his latest mishap, he broke a bat over his knee in frustration.

BOSTON (AP) — Max Scherzer pitched into the seventh inning, Delmon Young homered and the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3 on Thursday night to avoid a four-game series sweep. Scherzer (5-3) retired nine consecutive batters before Nick Punto led off the seventh with a walk, forcing the right-hander from the game. He allowed three runs and seven hits in his third consecutive victory, closing out a strong May. Young hit a solo drive in the eighth to make it 5-3, then added a run-scoring single in the ninth. Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his 10th homer for Boston, which was seeking its first four-game sweep against the Tigers since 2004. Josh Beckett (4-4) allowed four runs and a seasonhigh 10 hits in seven innings. The Red Sox opened May with eight losses in nine games to drop to 12-19 on the year. But they closed out the month with a 14-6 run to pull within three of the division lead. Young and Quintin Berry each had three hits for Detroit, which finished with 14 overall. Berry also scored two runs and stole two bases. Saltalamacchia connected in the second inning, and Scott Podsednik doubled in Ryan Sweeney to make it 2-0. Detroit responded with three runs in the third, capped by Prince Fielder’s two-out RBI single. Saltalamacchia tied it with a two-out RBI single in bottom half.

1987 — Cleveland’s Phil Niekro pitched the Indians to a 9-6 victory, his 314th, over the Detroit Tigers. The win gave him and his brother, Joe, a major league record 530 combined victories, surpassing Gaylord and Jim Perry. 2000 — Pawtucket’s Tomo Ohka became the third pitcher in the 117-year history of the International League to throw a nine-inning perfect game when he beat the Charlotte Knights 2-0. 2005 — Miguel Tejada hit a homer, three doubles and scored three runs in Baltimore’s 9-3 victory over Boston. 2009 — The New York Yankees played error free for the 18th straight game in a 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians, surpassing Boston’s major league mark of 17 set in 2006. New York’s last error came on May 13 at Toronto when shortstop Ramiro Pena misplayed a groundball.

Yankees shutout by Mud Hens The Times Leader staff

ROCHESTER, N.Y.–After a few wild games against Toledo, a pitcher’s duel broke out Thursday afternoon in the series finale. Eric Patterson’s two-run single and a sacrifice fly by Bryan Holaday was all the Mud Hens needed in a 3-0 victory over Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre handing the Yankees their third shutout loss of the season. The Yankees were held in check by four Mud Hens pitchers and didn’t notch an extra-base hit the entire game, while leaving eight runners on base. Toledo loaded the bases in the three-run seventh with nobody out as Matt Young led off with a single, Brad Eldred doubled and Ryan Strieby walked against Yankee starter D.J. Mitchell to setup the scoring. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s best chance to score came in the bottom of the seventh when it loaded the bases with one out in the inning. But the Yankees came up empty on a Colin Curtis flied out and Ronier Mustelier was thrown out at home trying to score. SWB had an opportunity in the bottom of the ninth as well. The first two batters of the frame reached via walk and hit by pitch against Mud Hens closer Chris Bootcheck. But the right-hander rebounded to strike out the next three hitters to record his tenth save of the season. Mitchell (4-2), who was dominant early pitching six-plus innings, allowed three runs on five hits, while striking out seven and walking just one. Rob Waite (2-1) earned the win for the Mud Hens in relief of starter Brooks Brown. Waite tossed 2 1 ⁄3 scoreless innings allowing three hits, while striking out two and walking one. Brown threw four shutout innings giving up three hits, while striking out three and walking two. The Yankees travel to Norfolk to begin a six-game, four-day series beginning tonight with a doubleheader at Harbor Park against the Tides. Right-hander Ramon Ortiz (3-3, 3.35) gets the nod in game one, while Mike O’Connor (1-1, 2.97) takes the hill in the second. Steve Johnson (1-3, 2.62) and Jason Berken (0-1, 2.12) get the ball for Norfolk. Mud Hens 3, Yankees 0

DISTRICT 2 CLASS 3A CHAMPIONSHIP

BASKETBALL

Dawgs can’t match Trojans’ firepower

By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

SCRANTON — Perhaps if Berwick did something with those two runners in the first inning, the Bulldogs would have injected some doubt into a highly-touted North Pocono squad. “No,” Berwick coach Brian Pinterich said succinctly. “No.” Pinterich then rattled off a list of recent District 2 Class 3A baseball champions that had success in the state playoffs. His state championship team in 2008. The Abington Heights side that did the same in 2009. The state runner-up Tunkhannock squad from last season. The North Pocono team that shut out Berwick 10-0 in six innings for the D2-3A title on Thursday at Scranton High School is as every bit as good, he concluded. “This team is as good as any,” Pinterich continued. “I told (North Pocono) coach (Brian) Jardine after the game this doesn’t stop here with them. They are state championship material. There’s no question about it. They’re good, they’re that good. And they’re solid all the way around.” The Trojans (16-1, 18-1 overall) offered little evident for a rebuttal. · All but one player either had a hit, RBI or scored a run. The Trojans finished with 13 hits, including two triples and six doubles. · The defense turned two double plays, albeit one aided by an illegal slide into second base. · Junior starter Billy Nelson overcame a mild case of wildness

Tsevdos, who went the distance on the mound for the first time this season. “He’s given us some good outings all year, and he brought it today,” Ritsick said. “Some anxious moments because he got banged up (Wednesday) in the game, so there was a little concern. But he pushed through it and did a great job.” With Tsevdos trying to get comfortable with an aching hand at the start of the game, Holy Cross’ first two batters singled to start things off. Those would be the only hits he would surrender all afternoon. He finished with five strikeouts, three walks and three unearned runs against him. “Early in the innings, (the hand) hurt,” Tsevdos said. “But eventually I guess the adrenaline and everything (took over).” Fittingly, Tsevdos finished off the sixth-seeded Crusaders with

early to throw a complete-game NORTH two-hitter. POCONO Yet, there was a flicker of hope for Berwick (13-5, 17-6 overBERWICK all) early on. With two outs in the first, T.J. Lashock was plunked with a pitch and Kyle Miller followed with a walk. Neither scored. Nor did Brandon Fenstermacher in the second. He reached when his routine infield pop was dropped. He moved to second when Nelson uncorked his second wild pitch of the game and made it to third on a flyout. “I couldn’t get my feeling at first,” Nelson said. “I just kind of amp it up sometimes. I settled down and threw the ball and relied on my defense.” North Pocono’s bats provided the best remedy for some biggame jitters. By the time Nelson took the mound for the third, the Trojans had a 7-0 lead thanks in part to a five-run, three-double second inning. “We know what Berwick could do,” Jardine said, “so we came ready for a fight, ready for a battle. That’s what they did. They took it at us, but we got some runs early and took them out of their game.” Lashock had Berwick’s first hit of the game when his chopper hugged the third-base line with two outs in the third. Jordan Stout had the other, a ground single to center in the fourth, but was erased on a double play. The Trojans ended the game

a strikeout, calmly walking off the mound toward the dugout before being swarmed by teammates and ending up at the bottom of a dog-pile. The Royals can now add some add gold to their collection of silver. “Finally,” said a beaming Choman. “It feels great. … We’ve always had that silver medal to work with to give us some motivation. This is a great way to go out.” Holy Redeemer 10, Holy Cross 3 District 2 Class 2A championship Holy Redeemer Holy Cross ab r h bi ab r h bi Peterlin c 5 3 2 0 Sempa cf 3 1 1 0 Policare 2b 5 2 2 0 Watters ph 0 0 0 0 Tsevdos p 0 0 0 0 Mies 2b 4 0 1 0 Ringsdorf dh 5 1 2 3 Rebar 3b-p 3 0 0 0 Choman 1b 2 2 2 1 Nicholoff 1b 1 0 0 0 Condo ss 5 0 1 1 Boylan c 1 1 0 0 Cavangh 3b 5 0 3 4 Montaro c 0 0 0 0 Ell rf 5 0 1 0 Wetter dh-p 2 1 0 0 Kerr lf 3 2 1 0 Yzeik 1b 0 0 0 0 Kosik cf 2 0 2 1 Malone ss 2 0 0 1 McGff p-1b 3 0 0 1 Patchoski rf 2 0 0 0 Reed lf 3 0 0 0 Totals 37101610 Totals 24 3 2 2 Holy Redeemer .................... 221 220 1 — 10 Holy Cross............................. 100 200 0 — 3 2B – Peterlin, Choman IP H R ER BB SO Holy Redeemer Tsevdos (W, 2-0)..... 7.0 2 3 0 3 5 Holy Cross McGoff (L, 1-1)......... 3.2 8 7 4 4 3 Wetter ........................ 3.0 8 3 3 0 3 Rebar ......................... 0.1 0 0 0 0 0

Berwick’s Anthony Melito throws to first base during Thursday’s District 2 Class 3A championship game in Scranton.

early when Ray Grapsy’s RBI triple and Joe Kaspar’s RBI single plated their ninth and 10th runs. “I started seven juniors and sophomores. I’m certainly proud of the run we made,” Pinterich said. “We finished the season at 17-6. Nobody expected us to be here. This was the one game we didn’t have a chance to compete in all year. That’s what disappoints you. “My guys got a taste of it. Hopefully, we can make a run at it next year.”

that we touched home before she came in,” Trivelpiece continued. “He was saying the kid beat it. He has a better look than I do. He was right in front of it.” The disputed play at the plate overshadowed dominant pitching efforts by Demko and Bower. Demko yielded two hits; Bower allowed just one. Demko struck out eight hitters, while Bower sat down 11 Cougars through seven innings. “We tried to get ahead in the count,” Trivelpiece added. “At the 4A level, you’re playing Division 1 pitchers. And with these two pitchers, runs are hard to come by.” After both teams went hitless through four and a half frames, each pitcher escaped potentially adverse innings. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Williamsport’s Heather Inners posted the first hit of the game. On a hit-and-run bunt, Abby Sachse charged from third base, changed directions at full speed and caught a foul ball before doubling off Inners to end the threat. Sachse’s glovework briefly invigorated the Cougar offense.

Hazleton Area coach Vince Trivelpiece gives his a team a talk between innings of Thursday’s game.

Ashley Donlin led off the sixth with a single to center. Quality atbats from Mikaela Browdy and Hailey Kendall advanced Donlin to third. Lexi Wolk popped out to rightfield to end the Cougars’ lone threat. “Coach told us it was really going to come down to a one-run game,” Demko said. “It was a great team effort. Unfortunately, one team has to come away with a victory.” Despite having a young roster

featuring three freshmen leading off the top of the lineup and a starting pitcher returning for her senior season next year, the regional championship loss didn’t sit well with the Hazleton Area manager. “When we got these medals, it feels like someone hit me in the stomach with a bat.

A benefit basketball game in honor of Tyler Winstead, 14, a student for GAR who was tragically killed a number of weeks ago, will be held tonight at 7 p.m. at GAR. The game will feature the school’s faculty against the faculties of Heights and Dodson Elementary schools. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are $2 for children and $5 for adults. Other features include a raffle and a snack bar. Faculty participants of GAR include athletic director Simon Peter, dean of students Rob Watkins, and assistant principal Anthony Khalife. Teachers Dan Himlin, Damian Evanko, and Shannon McCabe are also a few of the participants. Evanko, an eighth-grade health education teacher at GAR, remembers Winstead as a hard working young man and said it’s an honor for him to play in his memory. “This kid was one of the best kids we had in our school,” he said. “He was an honor roll student and an outstanding young

man. A couple of faculty members got turned down to participate because so many volunteered.” Evanko recalled a time when Winstead came to school to make up a test he didn’t have to. “He came back at 7:30 in the morning to answer bonus questions he forgot about,” Evanko said. “He didn’t even have to answer them.” GAR principal Colleen Robatin credited faculty members Dana Smith and Danielle Kishbaugh for organizing the benefit game. Winstead was a member of GAR’s junior high basketball team, and a member of the junior high/freshman championship team. Robatin said a basketball benefit was a perfect way to honor his memory. “Basketball was one of his passions, so what better way to do something to honor him,” said Robatin. Proceeds of the event will be given to the family members of Winstead, which include his grandparents and three siblings.

Twyman dies at 78

By LISA CORNWELL Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Basketball Hall of Famer Jack Twyman, one of the NBA’s top scorers in the 1950s who became the guardian to a paralyzed teammate, has died. He was 78. Twyman died Wednesday at a Cincinnati hospice of complications from an aggressive form of blood cancer, his son, Jay Twyman said Thursday. “He died peacefully with family members at his side,” said Twyman, of Rye, N.Y. Jack Twyman played for the University of Cincinnati and spent 11 seasons in the NBA with the Rochester and Cincinnati Royals. He averaged a career-high 31.2 points per game in the195960 season, playing in six All-Star games. In 1958, after teammate Maurice Stokes was left paralyzed after a head injury suffered during a game, Twyman became his guardian to help

Cincinnati Royals basketball player Jack Twyman has died at 78.

Stokes receive medical benefits. Twyman later worked as a television analyst on NBA games. His most famous work as an announcer came in Game 7 of the 1970 NBA finals between the New York Knicks and the Los Angeles Lakers, when he stopped himself mid-sentence during the pre-game to announce that he saw injured New York center Willis Reed coming through the player tunnel.

ing 109.4 points during its monthand-a-half winning streak and had been held to double digits only twice. The Spurs, who already set an NBA record for the longest winning streak carried over from the regular season into the playoffs, were trying to match the league mark for most wins to start the postseason. The Lakers won 11 straight to start the 1989 and 2001 playoffs, getting swept in the NBA finals the first time and winning it all the second. The Spurs’ last loss was to the Lakers at home on April 11. Parker and Duncan didn’t play in the final 15 minutes, and coach Gregg Popovich pulled the plug after another series of three

straight turnovers allowed the deficit to reach 23 points early in the fourth quarter. Sefolosha had a right-handed dunk off a lob pass from Russell Westbrook, who followed with his own two-handed jam on an alleyoop pass and Sefolosha followed with a reverse layup on another turnover-fueled fast-break chance to push the lead to 86-63 with 9:48 left. The Thunder put together another 9-0 run coinciding with Manu Ginobili coming out of the game, and featuring Serge Ibaka sticking his tongue out after nailing a jumper from the top of the key. Coach Scott Brooks soon followed suit and pulled his own front-line players with the game well in hand. The Spurs wiped out a 24-point deficit in Game 3 against the Clippers in Los Angeles in the last round, but they weren’t recovering in this one.

With a 9-0 road record this postseason the King’s look for another victory in N.J.

By ANDREW DAMPF AP Sports Writer

By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

NEWARK, N.J. — The New Jersey Devils are in danger of becoming the latest team to be steamrolled by the Los Angeles Kings. The Devils played one of their worst games of the postseason in dropping the series opener 2-1 in overtime Wednesday night here, and they can’t afford another subpar effort. Lose two games at home to a team that has posted a 9-0 record on the road this postseason, and the guys who lug around hockey’s biggest prize might start shinUP NEXT ing it in earnest GAME 2 after Saturday Los Angeles night’s contest at Kings the Prudential at New Jersey Center. The situation Devils 8 p.m. Saturday is desperate for NBC coach Peter DeBoer’s team. While they missed chances to win the opener, they also made a slew of mistakes that ranged from bad dump-ins of pucks, being tentative on the ice, failing to shoot when the shot was there, and leaving the Kings open. The most glaring error came in the overtime when Anze Kopitar scored on a breakaway. The problems can be fixed. The bad news is that the Kings weren’t exactly at their best either ... and still won. And if you’re a Devil, here’s a scary fact. The Kings have played some of their best hockey in Game 2s of their three previous series, beating Vancouver, St. Louis and Phoenix by a combined 13-4 margin to take commanding 2-0 series lead back to Los Angeles each time. “The comforting thing for me is when I listen to the comments of our players last night, they were dead-on,” DeBoer said. “We weren’t good enough. We have to be better. We got over the early-game jitters. We started to play a little bit better. But, you know, as a group, we’ve got to bring more to win this time of year.” The Devils carried the play in the third period and had two great chances to take the lead. Captain Zach Parise failed to put a bouncing puck in the net four minutes into the period and defenseman Mark Fayne missed a wide open net with roughly 10 minutes left in regulation. “We didn’t play at our best, I think,” Devils center Travis Zajac said. “We were a little nervous in the first period, a little tentative. You could see that. We weren’t making plays. We were throwing the puck away a little too much. We weren’t moving our feet and getting on the forecheck like we usually do. For us, we felt that, yeah, we missed an opportunity because we were able to hang around against this team, you know, not playing our best game. Still having a chance to win, that makes us feel pretty good that we can play better, be a little bit more successful.” Kings captain Dustin Brown said that the Darryl Sutter-coached team has done a good job of not being satisfied after winning Game 1. “In Game 2, it’s been our starts,” Brown said. “We’ve jumped on teams early, most noticeably against St. Louis, we had a 4-0 lead after the first and that goes a long way. Some teams get a win and they are satisfied. This group hasn’t been and it goes a long way when you come out in Game 2 and really put it to them. “It’s demoralizing.”

Isner is upset in marathon At a glance

By CHRIS LEHOURITES AP Sports Writer

PARIS — Grimacing in pain with almost every step, Andy Murray nearly had to call it quits because of a back spasm at the French Open on Thursday. Instead, the fourth-seeded Brit rebounded from an awful first set to beat Jarkko Nieminen 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 and reach the third round. “I was a few points probably from stopping,” Murray said. “I just didn’t really want to stop the match. Then at the end of the second set I started standing up at the change of ends, and my back started to loosen up a little bit.” A few hours later on the same court, 10th-seeded John Isner of the United States produced yet another marathon match, but was on the losing end this time. Isner, who won the longest match in history two years ago at Wimbledon, lost to Paul-Henri Mathieu of France 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 18-16. The match lasted 5 hours, 41 minutes — the second-longest by time in French Open history. The record is 6:33. The last set alone took 2:28. “I never felt comfortable. It’s been like that since I’ve been in Europe, really,” Isner said. “I don’t know what it was. I just didn’t play the right way.” Isner beat Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon in 2010. Because of the time, Maria Sharapova’s second-round match was postponed until Friday. Defending champion Rafael Nadal also made it to the third round, defeating Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 and improving his record at Roland Garros to 47-1. The second-seeded Spaniard has won the French Open six times, and one more will break the record he shares with Bjorn

Borg. Murray could barely walk straight when the first match of the day started on Court Philippe Chatrier, gingerly trotting around the red clay with the equivalent of a big target on his back. Nieminen took advantage, at the beginning. But after losing the first four games, Murray called for a trainer. He then broke

back to 4-1, and needed more treatment during the changeover. It was then that he started to consider retiring from the match. “It was around that period, end of the first set, and then when I played a couple more games,” Murray said. “Then I was thinking whether to keep playing or not. “I’m happy I did.” Despite being broken to open the second set, Murray started to move better and make his shots count. By the time he broke back for 4-4, Murray was the one getting stronger. “I should have taken a double break in the second set to have taken the second set,” Nieminen said. “I couldn’t take that, and then I played one very poor changeover, two bad games, and then he started to play better. “I really never got the momentum back.” Last year, Murray injured his right ankle at the French Open, but he still made the semifinals. This year, he skipped the Madrid Open with a back problem and said it was still affecting him after a threeset loss to Richard Gasquet in the third round of the Italian Open. Murray said Thursday’s injury was different, but that his trainer advised him that he couldn’t do any permanent damage by playing, so he continued despite the discomfort. “Then, obviously, it didn’t feel good. So they were telling me to stop, and then I just kept going, and then it started to feel a bit better,” Murray said. No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France and No. 6 David Ferrer of Spain also advanced, while Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova reached the third round by beating Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-1, 6-3. The fourth-seeded Czech was never really troubled on Court Suzanne Lenglen, saving all three break points she faced.

With the London Olympics less than two months away, there’s more chaos in the swimsuit department. When aquatic leaders decided to ban rubberized bodysuits three years ago, it was thought that it would put an end to the technological arms race roiling the waters. And, indeed, there’s not nearly as much focus on what everyone is wearing or how many world records will be broken at these games. “The suit does matter, it does help,” said Bob Bowman, the coach of 14-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps. “But it just gives them a little sharpness. It doesn’t completely change them as a swimmer.” Still, mirroring the anarchy that seemingly ruled at the 2008 Beijing Games and the 2009 world championships, swimmers are now shedding suits provided by their sponsors to wear apparel perceived to be faster. Teams are jockeying to make sure their athletes have the best suits available — no matter who is their official supplier. This time, the roles are reversed for two of the main manufacturers. Whereas Speedo’s LZR Racer was all the rage at the last Olympics, Arena’s Powerskin CarbonPro appears to have the edge this time. “Four years ago, the performance difference was much larger,” said Giuseppe Musciacchio, Arena’s general manager for brand development. “We’re not talking about seconds now, but tenths can also make a difference in an Olympic race.” Speedo unveiled its 2012 products, the Fastskin3 Racing System, at elaborate presentations in November featuring Phelps in New York and Rebecca Adlington in London. Besides the suit itself, the system features wide, angular goggles that allow for peripheral vision, plus a new cap that is designed to reduce resistance in the pool even more. But neither the suit nor the system has caught on. “The new suit is horrible,” said Netherlands coach Titus Mennen at last week’s European Championship at Debrecen, Hungary. “It gets very heavy and it’s difficult for the women to put it on, pulling the (straps) over their heads. Then it bunches up in the water. That’s something Speedo has to work on.” Not this year. According to the rules put in place by governing body FINA in 2009, all suits being used this year had to be submitted for approval last July 1 and be on the market by the first day of this year.

Compton’s amazing story continues with strong Memorial showing The Associated Press

DUBLIN, Ohio — Erik Compton considers the Memorial a special week no matter how he plays, knowing his second heart transplant came from a donor in Ohio. The opening round was even sweeter with three birdies on the back nine late Thursday afternoon at Muirfield Village for a 5-under 67, leaving him one-shot out of the lead after a day that featured a timely rally by Rory McIlroy and a surprising departure by Phil Mickelson. When the day ended, Scott Stallings was atop the leaderboard with a 66 and hardly anyone noticed. Compton has been an amazing story as long as he has played golf. He had his first heart transplant at12, played in the Walker Cup after a solid career at Georgia, nearly died from a heart attack on his way home from the golf course in 2007, had a second transplant in May 2008, and earned his PGA Tour card for the first time last year through the Nationwide Tour. “It’s just a great story, obviously, and it’s a great place — for me, it’s a special place,” Compton said. “For me, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about my donor. To be able to play here, regardless of

whether I play good or bad, it’s just always a nice week.” It could have been another bad week for McIlroy. Coming off back-toback missed cuts that Compton cost him his No. 1 ranking and ramped up the scrutiny, McIlroy took a quadruple bogey on his third hole of the tournament when he went from the bunker to the water, back over the pond to the drop area on a forward tee, and then into another bunker. He blasted onto the green and took two putts for a 7, and there were murmurs from the crowd to see him at 4-over par so early. The next15 holes were much better, and he rallied for a 71. “It wasn’t the start I wanted to get off to, being 4 over through three holes, especially after the last few weeks,” McIlroy said. “I was just like, ‘Here we go again.’ But I hung in there well, and proud of myself for the way I just fought back. To finish the round under par, I thought was a really good effort.” Tiger Woods, playing in the group behind him, chopped up the 18th hole for a

double bogey and still managed a 2-under 70. “I didn’t do anything great and I didn’t do anything poorly,” Wood said. “I was just very consistent. And I think with the golf course being the way it’s set up, you just have to be that way. ... Over the next three days, hopefully I can play as well as I did today.” Mickelson wasn’t anywhere near those scores, and when his round ended, he was nowhere near the golf course. Mickelson walked out of the scoring hut after signing for a 79 — his worst score ever at the Memorial — and said he was withdrawing because of mental fatigue. He said playing three straight weeks, followed by a trip to Europe for his wife’s 40th birthday, took too much out of him and he needed extra rest with the U.S. Open only two weeks away. Mickelson was among four players who withdrew after a 79 or worse, though none of the others are four-time major champions who were inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. “I feel like it’s the responsibility of a player to see through your commitment and finish the tournament and so forth,” Mickelson said.

Garner also spoke about an area at the end of the Astros dugout called “Rocket Hole,” where Clemens kept bananas and Gatorade to recover between innings. During one game, Garner said he turned and saw Clemens pacing and yelling at himself: “What is going on?! Are you going to pitch tonight or are you not going to pitch tonight?! Are you going to get anybody out tonight?” Garner also said Clemens threw a tantrum and berated Astros coach Doug Mansolino for not hitting practice grounders hard enough on a “steamy hot” afternoon in Cincinnati when everyone was tried from an overnight flight.

Mayweather Jr. is set to go to jail today for three months for attacking woman.

LAS VEGAS — Free time is about to run out for Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is due to begin a three-month jail sentence in Las Vegas stemming from a hair-pulling, arm-twisting attack in September 2010 on the mother of three of his children. The unbeaten five-division champion’s legal and ring advisers weren’t immediately commenting Thursday about Mayweather’s scheduled Friday morning surrender before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa. The judge sentenced him Mayweather Dec. 22 for his guilty plea to reduced charges in the domestic battery case. Mayweather’s lawyers, Karen Winckler and Richard Wright, said previously they didn’t plan to seek another postponement or delay. Mayweather, now 35, was initially due to begin his sentence Jan. 6. But Saragosa agreed at the last minute to let him remain free long enough to fight Miguel Cotto on May 5 in Las Vegas. The fighter who goes by the nickname “Money” won the bout and a guaranteed $32 million. Cotto was paid $8 million. Mayweather’s stint in the highrise Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas is expected to limit his ability to train for another fight. At least for the first week, Mayweather will be segregated for his protection from the other 3,200 inmates, Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell said. He’ll get one hour of exercise time a day outside his cell. Saragosa said when she sentenced Mayweather that she was particularly troubled that he threatened and hit ex-girlfriend Josie Harris while their two sons watched. The boys were 10 and 8 at the time. The older boy ran out a back door to fetch a security guard in the gated community. However, the judge accepted the plea deal that avoided trial on felony and misdemeanor charges that could have gotten Mayweather 34 years in state prison if he had been convicted on all counts. Mayweather’s pending jail term will be capped at 87 days. Saragosa gave him credit for three days previously served. Mayweather also was ordered to complete a yearlong domestic violence counseling program, 100 hours of community service and pay a $2,500 fine.

ingtonians who don’t follow the sport. During Garner’s first spring training with the Astros in 2005, he recalled seeing Clemens at the ballpark at 7:30 a.m. working out in a heavy flak jacket, then going for a run before returning outside after lunch for some “PFP” (pitchers’ fielding practice). Garner thought it all “totally weird” because Clemens was supposed to pitch that day. “Rocket, what in the world are you doing?” Garner asked. “Skip,I’mtryingtogetmylegsas tired as possible so it’s like it’s the ninth inning when I’m out there today,” Clemens replied, according to Garner.

NEW YORK — The trainer of Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another doesn’t believe New York racing officials are picking on him after the state’s racing and wagering board imposed strict rules for horses in the Belmont Stakes. “I don’t think so,” Doug O’Neill said Thursday when asked if officials were singling him out because of his history of doping infractions. His recent 45-day suspension won’t begin until after the Belmont on June 9 when I’ll Have Another tries to become the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years. New rules announced Wednesday call for all Belmont runners to be stabled in the same barn rather than spread out in stables around the track. Also, there will be out-of-competition blood testing and close scrutiny of the horses and humans attending them by board investigators and private security personnel. The trainer is OK with the new rules, but said the plan doesn’t sound like it’s been “real organized,” and wishes it would have been implemented sooner. The stakes barn won’t open until Wednesday, meaning most of the horses already settled in at the Belmont Park will have to be moved. It’s a situation that doesn’t thrill O’Neal and other trainers, but he understands racing has come under scrutiny on many fronts, including drugs. Trainer Michael Matz, who will send out Union Rags in the Belmont, says he still plans to ship his colt to Belmont on Wednesday. He, too, wondered about the timing of the sweeping changes. “Do they make this stuff up as they go along?” he asked Wednesday. O’Neill said racing has “a lot of black eyes all over the country, especially in New York,” and officials are just trying to prove to the country that horses are treated well. I’ll Have Another is stabled in a barn near the entrance to the main track after arriving in New York the day after winning the Preakness on May 19. O’Neill said horses who have

Loose horse nearly slams into I’ll Have Another

NEW YORK — Trainer Doug O’Neill says a loose horse nearly slammed into Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another during training Thursday at Belmont Park. He says his Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner was walking a few feet from the outside rail when another horse threw his rider and came “screaming up the outside rail” the same way I’ll Have Another was walking. O’Neill says the horse went between the rail and I’ll Have Another, and that exercise rider Jonny Garcia told him the horse grazed his boot. The trainer feared a collision was imminent. O’Neill says he’s seen accidents like that, and “they are ugly.” He says his stomach is “still a little twisted” and he doesn’t want to think about what nearly happened. I’ll Have Another will attempt to become the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years at the Belmont Stakes on June 9.

yet to arrive may be at an advantage because they can move right into the stakes barn, and won’t have to be uprooted from a place where they’re already settled. The New York Times reported Wednesday night that steps taken by the authorities also include a set of specific safeguards directed at O’Neill. According to a confidential email obtained by the Times, O’Neill’s horses cannot in any way be treated “without a board investigator present,” and that he should not allow treatment of any of his horses “by mouth or in feed without conferring with a board investigator, who will first log the treatment and discuss the reason(s) for treatment.” The Times also reported O’Neill must provide veterinary records for I’ll Have Another and any other horses he may be running over those days at Belmont “no later than 10 a.m.” each day after any treatment. When horses arrive at the barn, they will be required to have a blood test, which will be reviewed that night at the New York State Racing and Wagering Board’s drug lab.

Retail sales rebound during May

B R I E F

Stocks suffer in May

With a disappointing finish on Thursday, the stock market closed what was by some measures its worst month in two years. Over five dismal weeks, Facebook fizzled, a debt crisis in Europe loomed, and nobody was in the mood to buy. When May was mercifully over, the Dow Jones industrial average and other major indexes had erased most of the strong gains they built up through March and held on to in April. The Dow lost 820 points for the month, its worst showing since May 2010.

By CANDICE CHOI AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Americans loosened their purse strings in May, but it may have been a temporary splurge. Some major retailers such as Target and Macy’s on Thursday posted sales increases that beat Wall Street estimates as shoppers were lured in by Mother’s Day promotions and colorful new styles of clothing. The gains follow a dismal showing from the month before Still, it may not be time to celebrate just yet. Revenue growth remains down from earlier in the year and worries about the global economy are starting to escalate again. Michael Niemira, chief economist at the International Council of Shopping Centers, said while May’s results are encouraging, he thinks troubling economic data will continue to weigh on consumers’ minds in the months ahead. “There’s something out there that’s worrying consumers,” he said. Only a handful of retailers representing roughly 13 percent of the U.S. retail industry report monthly sales figures based on stores open at least a year, which is a key measure of health because it excludes the impact of newly opened and closed stores. But economists watch the numbers because they offer a snapshot of consumer spending, which is critical to economic growth. On average, retailers posted a 4 percent rise in May for revenue at stores open at least a year, according to the international shopping trade group. That’s better than the 3.6 percent analysts were expecting But the latest results seem to fly in the face of negative economic news. The Commerce Department said Thursday that the U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 1.9 percent in the first three months of the year, which was slower than expected. Growth of 2.5 percent is typically enough just to keep pace with population changes. The Labor Department also reported that the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits rose last week to a five-week high, evidence that the job market remains sluggish.

Windows 8 in test release

Microsoft is nearly done with a much-anticipated overhaul of its Windows operating system. The software maker signaled the makeover is nearly complete with Thursday’s release of the final test version of Windows 8. Upgrades include more ways to connect to other Microsoft services, more security controls and more touchscreen features. Most industry analysts expect the software to hit the market in September or October. Windows 8 has been designed so it can run desktop, laptop and tablet computers.

hanks to Pam Masi of Bear Creek, a portion of a dilapidated downtown Wilkes-Barre building that used to employ strippers and bouncers is now refurbished as an ice cream shop dubbed Dairy Godmother’s. Masi, originally from East Rutherford, N.J., also owns and operates two Bear Creek businesses, Pamela’s Ice Cream and Cosenza’s Pizza, which she took over in 2004 after her father retired. All three of the shops are family owned and operated along with employees who she considers part of her family. “In 2000 I wouldn’t have been caught dead here,” said Masi, but she took notice of the improvements and the changing scenery of downtown. Even five years ago, “I saw things you wouldn’t want your kids to see,” she

Average U.S. rates for 30-year and 15-year fixed mortgages dropped to record lows again this week, with the 15-year loan dipping below 3 percent for the first time ever, according to a survey by mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. The rate on the 30-year mortgage, the most popular, fell to 3.75 percent. That’s down from 3.78 percent last week and the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. The 15-year mortgage, an option for refinancing, slid to 2.97 percent from last week’s previous record low of 3.04 percent.

India economy slows

India’s economy grew 5.3 percent in the January-March quarter, the slowest rate in nine years The malaise in manufacturing and other sectors spread to ordinary Indians, who trimmed spending as inflation grew. India’s slowdown is worse today than it was during the global financial crisis.

LOS ANGELES -- The special "eco" versions of small cars such as the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus and Honda Civic don’t improve fuel economy enough to be worth the extra money, according to an analysis by Consumer Reports. The magazine said it could take as long as 38 years for the extra cost to be worthwhile, depending on the vehicle. The cars, which come equipped with special low rolling resistance tires and aerodynamic features, generally cost $500 to $800 more than fuel-efficient

She said her business and people skills are helping to spur return customers. “I love people … there’s a lost art on how to treat people,” Masi explained. The ice cream shop offers more than 30 different soft serve flavors along with Turkey Hill ice cream and chili dogs. Eventually the plan is to expand the menu with items that can be found at Cosenza’s Pizza. There is currently no seating, but Masi hopes to change that in the future.

Clouds will increase today ahead of a storm system that will stick around through the weekend. Along with clouds comes the rain. If you have plans to be outdoors today, try and get what you need done as early as possible. The rain will move in from the west during the afternoon and evening and will be heavy at times tonight into Saturday morning. A cold front will also move through the region on Saturday morning, taking the heavy rain to our east. The rest of the weekend will feature more clouds than sun with a passing shower possible Saturday evening and Sunday. - Kurt Aaron
