Ex-chief’s sentence 13 months




Conahan gives up pension challenge

Shenandoah’s Matthew Nestor had faced 57 to 71 months behind bars. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

WILKES-BARRE – Rejecting sentencing guidelines as being “overly harsh,” a federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a former Shenandoah police chief convicted of falsifying a report on a hate crime to 13 months in prison – nearly four years less than the minimum sentence suggested by the guidelines. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo said he believed the sentence imNestor posed on Matthew Nestor was appropriate given the nature and circumstances of the crime. He offered litMoyer tle other reasoning to support his decision to significantly depart from the guideline range, which called for a sentence of 57 to 71 months. Federal judges typically sentence defendants within the guideline range, which is calculated by probation officials based on the nature of the crime and numerous other factors. Judges are not required to do so, however, as the guidelines are advisory. Nestor, the former police chief, was convicted in January of filing a false police report relating to the investigation into the July 2008 death of Luis Ramirez, an illegal immigrant who was beaten to death by a group of Shenandoah teenagers. Nestor was among three Shenandoah officers charged in connection with the Ramirez investigation. William Moyer, who was convicted of lying to the FBI, was sentenced Wednesday to three months in prison for his role in the case. The third defendant, Jason Hayes, was acquitted of all charges. The crux of the prosecution’s case against Nestor rested on the fact that he had withheld the names of several of the suspected assailants of Ramirez, including Brandon Piekarsky and Derrick Donchak, in his original po-

Chaperones took them to various restaurants for lunch because the group of 100 was too large for a single place. The Bloomsburg Press Enterprise reported on Tuesday that one group of 15 to 20 students ended up at Hooters.


District Superintendent Wayne Brookhart said that while he wishes the group’s coed chaperones had chosen another restaurant, he has not received any complaints from parents. Hooters spokesman Mike McNeil said the restaurant chain often hosts groups, including sports teams and church organizations with teens and younger children.

State agency halted former judge’s monthly pension payment of $8,072 in April 2009. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

HARRISBURG – Former Luzerne County Judge Michael Conahan has dropped his appeal of a state agency’s decision to deny him his pension benefits, according a state official. Robert Gentzel, spokesman for the State Employees’ Retirement System, said Conahan notified the agency in April that he was withdrawing the appeal of the denial, as well as his challenge of SERS’ decision to seek repayment of more than $21,000 in benefits it says Conahan improperly received. SERS halted Conahan’s Conahan monthly pension payment of $8,072 in April 2009, two months after he and former Judge Mark Ciavarella originally pleaded guilty to honest services fraud related to the Luzerne County corruption probe. Since then, both men withdrew their pleas. Conahan re-entered a new guilty plea last year to a charge of racketeering conspiracy. Ciavarella was convicted Conahan is by a jury in February of 12 charg- also withes, including racketeering, money laundering and tax evasion. drawing his Both men had challenged the challenge of SERS determination that they SERS’ deciwere not entitled to their pen- sion to seek sions based on a state law that permits the denial of benefits to repayment of any person convicted of certain more than crimes related to their public of- $21,000 in fice. benefits it Conahan’s attorney, Philip Gelso, declined to comment says Conahan Wednesday on Conahan’s rea- improperly sons for dropping his appeal. received. Ciavarella continues to contest SERS’ decision to deny him his pension, which has been estimated at $5,156 a month. A hearing on his appeal was set for today, but was postponed at the request of his attorney, Al Flora. Conahan’s decision to drop his appeal means the money he would have been paid will remain within the SERS retirement fund, Gentzel said. It also clears the way for SERS to take action to collect $21,261 in benefits Conahan was paid from See CONAHAN, Page 12A

4 area men busted in N.H. Police allege the four drove all the way to Concord on Monday to rob a drug dealer. By JERRY LYNOTT

When Nicholas Sheffler was read his rights, it sounded familiar to the Pittston man, who was arrested in Concord, N.H., Monday for carrying a loaded shotgun after plans he and others made to rob a drug dealer unraveled, police said. Sheffler was one of four Luzerne County men arrested after they drove nearly eight hours from Wilkes-Barre on Monday to Concord for the attempted robbery, police said. Jeremy Martin, 21, Edwin Mateo Jr., 22, and Joseph Hasan, 22, all of Wilkes-Barre, and Sheffler are being held in the Merrimack County House of Corrections in lieu of bail ranging from $100,000 to $125,000 on charges including conspiracy to commit robbery and attempted burglary.

NANTICOKE – Fiscal responsibility and efficient use of tax dollars were discussed at Wednesday night’s City Council meeting. “We have nearly $3 million in the bank,” said Albert Wytoshek, city treasurer, “and I am unclear as to what type of accounts this money is in and why we don’t get more interest.” He noted the interest on these accounts was under $2,000 a year.

Police checked on Balester at family’s request 3 hours before relative found body



Homicide victim stabbed in back


KINGSTON TWP. – Township police made a welfare check on Jonathan Balester about three hours before family members found his body inside his North Lehigh Street home on Friday, according to a search warrant affidavit. Police also found blood leading from the kitchen to where Balester was found inside a bedroom, the search warrant says. Balester, 56, died from multiple

stab wounds, Luzerne County Coroner John Corcoran said after an autopsy was performed on Saturday. The search warrant says the back of Balester Balester’s shirt was covered in blood and “there appeared to be multiple stab wounds to the victim’s back.” State police at Wyoming said Balester was found at 10:38 p.m. Corco-

State police obtained the rare nighttime search warrant authorized by District Judge Daniel O’Donnell of Sugarloaf Township at 3 a.m. Saturday when they learned Balester lived alone and no other person could consent to search the house. Weather conditions also played a factor in obtaining the

search warrant as investigators worked quickly to preserve evidence outside that may have been dissipated by the rain. Search warrants applied at night require additional reasonable cause for permission from a district judge to enter a property, according to the state’s crimes code.

With AC being worked on, employees allowed to leave, but are not paid unless using sick or vacation time. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County Courthouse employees are permitted to leave work until temperatures are lowered in the building, though they won’t get paid unless they use vacation or sick time, officials said Wednesday. Temperatures exceeded 90 degrees in parts of the building Wednesday because the air-conditioning system is under repair. Contractors could not complete work on the air conditioning sooner because they’re replacing 12 air handlers that are used to both heat and cool the centuryold building. The heat had to be kept on until the end of April, which didn’t leave enough time to finish the work before the air conditioning was needed, officials said. Many departments “The tem- worked without overhead lights Wednesperatures day to try to make their workspaces coolwere not er. healthy County District Attorney Jackie Musto working Carroll is allowing conditions workers to dress casuat all.” ally when they’re not in court. Paula Schnelly Some male workers AFSCME union head wore polo shirts instead of ties and suit jackets. Women were allowed to wear capri pants and opentoed shoes. Some court proceedings were moved to other county buildings. Prothonotary Carolee Medico Olenginski bought popsicles for her workers and said papers in the office stuck to her skin in the heat. Workers were hesitant to leave because the office is shortstaffed and preparing for the upcoming switch to online access of her office records, she said. Union leaders measured the temperature from the basement to second floor and got readings of 86 to 91 degrees, said Paula Schnelly, head the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) union. “The temperatures were not healthy working conditions at all,” Schnelly said. County Engineer Joe Gibbons said 50 percent of the air conditioning should be restored to the building next week, but he is trying a stopgap measure to cool the building today. Large industrial fans have been moved into the building. Building and grounds workers will arrive early and open as many windows as possible in the building to draw in cooler air. The fans will be used to push warmer air out through the second floor, Gibbons said. “We’re going to create a convection system inside the dome,” Gibbons said. The work is part of a $2.2 million heating and air-conditioning rehabilitation primarily funded by federal stimulus money targeted for energy efficiency. The system, when complete, will have computer-operated controls that automatically adjust air handlers to keep the building at a preset temperature, reducing electricity usage by an estimated 20 percent, officials said.

Bee veteran headed to semifinals for a spell S C R I P P S N AT I O N A L SPELLING BEE

South Abington Township’s Sukanya Roy is competing in her third Scripps National Spelling Bee. By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Bureau

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – Sukanya (Sue) Roy is headed for today’s semifinals of the 2011 Scripps National Spelling Bee – and hoping that the third time proves the charm for progressing even farther. The 14-year-old South Abington Township resident handled the bright lights and pressure of the two rounds on the stage Wednesday, spelling both her words correctly. Combined with her score on Tuesday’s 25-word written test, Roy qualified along with 40 other spellers for the semifinal round. The day began with 275 spellers vying to survive. Roy missed just one word on the written test. Missing more than two words on the written test, and either of the on-stage words, meant falling short of the semifinals. After winning The 2011 Times Leader/Scripps Northeast Pennsylvania Regional Spelling Bee earlier this year, Roy is making her third trip to the national contest, courtesy of The Times


Sukanya Roy is competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Instead of being held in a downtown D.C. hotel where it has been for a number of years, the competition is being staged at a large hotel resort complex in suburban Maryland, about 15 minutes outside of Washington. The ultimate winner of the 2011 Scripps National Spelling Bee will win an array of prizes, including $30,000 from the main sponsor of the Bee, the E.W. Scripps Co., as well as a $25,000 U.S. savings bond from Merriam-Webster, the dictionary publisher. Cash prizes also are awarded to other finalists, including $12,500 for second place and $7,500 for third place.

round (technically the second round after Tuesday’s written-test first round) Roy walked to the microphone Wednesday morning to face her first word of the day: croissant. The eighth-grade Abington Heights Middle School student asked for a definition, said the word again, and then did a little practice spelling by writing on her hand. She then calmly spelled “croissant” correctly, and walked back to her chair to the applause of the crowd. There were only 38 words misspelled by the 275 spellers during the

Leader. Her first two trips resulted in 12thand 28th-place finishes, so this is her third consecutive semifinals appearance. “I am happy I made it,” Roy said after Wednesday’s rounds were concluded and the semifinalists announced. “I am just going to try my best.” Roy said her experience has taught her it is important to “keep calm and relax” during the semifinals, in the face of knowing there are “no second chances.” The 214th speller in the first on-stage See ROY, Page 4A

Kindergarten focus of rally

A group of concerned citizens is having a rally at 7 tonight to bring to light the negative consequences of cutting full-time kindergarten in favor of half-day kindergarten to achieve budget cuts in Crestwood and other school districts. The rally is at New Life Community Church , 570 South Main Road, between Crossroads Bar and Knights of Columbus. The meeting aims to objectively review Crestwood’s progress with fullday kindergarten and the potential impact to children’s academic progress of curtailing the program, organizers said. What appears to be savings could potentially wind up costing the district hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to a press release. There also will be discussion on how cutting transportation for kindergarten students could be discriminatory. WILKES-BARRE

Organizing Center class set

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Organizing Center will have an orientation 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday for local people who want to take part in its Media Program. The event will at the Downtown Arts Center, 47 N. Franklin St., side entrance. No experience is needed, nor is a journalism background required. Food will be served afterward.

The Media Program exists to assist organizations and individuals in telling their own stories. Saturday’s orientation is to train “resident reporters,” who will produce media that clarifies the issues, documents the realities of daily life and acts as a tool to inspire and unite those who have a vested interest in change, said Mitch Troutman, media program coordinator.









2.3 percent more in revenue collected so far than estimated

Surplus grows amid fight over cuts By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania state government had another better-than-expected revenue collection month in May, and on Wednesday it headed into the final month of the fiscal year with a nearly $540 million surplus as the debate intensifies in the Capitol over the depth of spending cuts being sought by Gov. Tom Corbett. Legislative budget analysts said the state’s updated revenue collection figure through the end of May was 2 percent, or about $34 million, over the official estimate. That means the state has collected almost $24.3 billion through 11 months, or 2.3 percent above the official estimate. However, the state continues to face a projected multibilliondollar budget deficit in the fiscal year beginning July 1, largely because of the disappearing federal stimulus money that temporarily helped buttress the state’s recession-wracked tax collections. But with Corbett seeking $2.6 billion in spending cuts to balance the budget, May’s rosy revenue report adds fuel to arguments by Democrats — and even some Republican senators — that the state can afford to

spend more to ease proposed cuts in aid to public schools and state-supported universities, hospital care for the poor and other areas. House Democrats said the revenue collections mean the state government can put another $1 billion into the 2011-12 budget, and they also expect June to deliver strong revenue collections. “With only one month to go in the fiscal year, the governor and many House Republicans would rather stick their heads in the sand than acknowledge the fiscal reality that’s as clear as the nose on my face,” House Minority Leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny, said in a statement. In the meantime, public school districts, particularly the state’s poorest, are preparing to lay off staff, close school buildings, raise property taxes and eliminate programs, such as fullday kindergarten, to absorb approximately $1 billion, or more than 10 percent, in proposed state school aid cuts. On Tuesday, Harrisburg’s school board adopted a temporary budget plan that would mean closing four school buildings and laying off more than 20 percent of its teachers, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg reported.

Gov. Tom Corbett’s no-newtaxes vow still stirring debate.

Corbett has maintained the state must spend no more than the $27.3 billion that he proposed in March, and he has said he opposes any tax increase. Last week, the Republicancontrolled House approved a $27.3 billion budget bill that does not increase taxes and leaves nearly the entire surplus untouched. Every Democrat and two Republicans opposed it. The bill is under consideration in the Senate, which reconvenes next week. Leaders of the Senate’s Republican majority have clashed with Corbett over spending, and say there’s no compell-

a word. In the second round on stage Wednesday, Roy received the word “execration,” meaning “the act of cursing or denouncing,” according to the Bee’s official Webster’s Third New International Dictionary, Unabridged. She asked for the definition, the origin of the word (Latin), and asked the an-

nouncer to use the word in a sentence. Scribbling it out on her hand first, Roy then coolly spelled it out correctly. Roy said after her success at the start of the day Wednesday that she was “feeling pretty confident about getting to the semis.” But once a speller reaches the semifinals, “after that, so much is luck,” Roy added. “I will see how it turns out.”

posted at the entrance and exit to the property. Prosecutors argued the animal rescue does not meet the legal definition of a farm in the state code: more than 10 acres used for agricultural purposes and an anticipated annual income of $2,000 or more.

“My question is: What do you do when you have someplace designated as a farm and then you place a no-kill shelter on top of that?” Polachek Gartley said. Prosecutors called four witnesses: two high-school students who said they were bitten on the leg by the dog while volunteer-

mugs and calendars. An officer went to Balester’s house, opened the front and rear doors, yelled inside and got no response. The officer noticed the exterior and interior lights and a ceiling fan were turned on, and a Toyota parked in the rear of the house. Police notified the family member that there was no response from inside the home. About three hours later, police received a second phone call from Balester’s family asking an officer to meet them at the North Lehigh Street resi-

dence. An officer stayed outside while family members went inside and found Balester in a bedroom, the search warrant affidavit says. It remained unknown what items were taken from the property. An inventory return receipt was not attached to the search warrant. Balester was last seen alive Wednesday night, state police said. Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to call state police at Wyoming at 697-2000.

ing reason to hoard the surplus while public schools and hospitals suffer. In a public appearance Tuesday before an audience of Philadelphia-area business leaders, Corbett acknowledged the complaints over his spending plan, but insisted it shouldn’t surprise anyone. “I campaigned on this,” he said, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report. “I believe everybody wanted me to keep my word, they just didn’t want me to keep my word as it pertained to them.” Corbett has said a surplus could be used to pay down debt or kept in reserve in case of a downturn in the economy that drags down state revenue collections. A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, RDelaware, said Wednesday that the goal of the Republican majority is to deliver a fiscally responsible, on-time budget. “We are now involved in an indepth, line-by-line review of the House-passed spending plan,” spokesman Erik Arneson said. “Among the items being reviewed in great detail are the line items related to education funding and hospital funding.”

Changes are uncertain in wake of Pa. casino report Two senators want to make gaming investigative bureau into an independent agency. The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Two state senators are vowing to introduce legislation that would turn the state Gaming Control Board’s bureau of investigations and enforcement into an independent agency. Sen. Jane Orie, R-Allegheny, and Sen. John Rafferty, R-Montgomery, also want the Legislature to adopt other reforms endorsed last week by a Pittsburgh-based grand jury. The announcement by Orie and Rafferty is one sign that the report that exposed shortcomings in Pennsylvania’s casino licensing process could get traction in the state Capitol. The Scranton Times-Tribune said Wednesday it wasn’t clear who, or which institution, might emerge to push for the suggested changes to tighten oversight of the state’s gambling industry. Orie and Rafferty said their bill would contain all 21 proposed changes in the 102-page report, made public May 24.

It turned out just fine for Roy on Wednesday, leaving her beaming when the semifinals group was announced. The national contest culminates tonight with the prime-time championship finals live on ESPN. The opening two on-stage rounds, along with the scores from the written test, helped winnow the field of 275 spellers down to the

They said they feel obligated to push for “reasonable reforms and more transparency” as long as gambling oversight concerns and issues remain. The House voted in February to put the investigative bureau under the Attorney General’s Office. That bill is currently pending before a Senate committee. The jury said the gaming board needs more experienced employees and should limit how many secret meetings it holds, among other suggestions, but did not recommend criminal charges. A spokesman for the state Attorney General’s Office told the newspaper the grand jury report amounted to a “greatest hits” of what its investigation found. The spokesman, Nils Frederiksen, declined to say whether another grand jury might be formed to consider bringing criminal charges, instead suggesting that other solutions might emanate from parties on the report’s distribution list. It was sent to the governor, both legislative chambers, the state Supreme Court, the court’s disciplinary board and any future grand juries.

wise informed of the presence of a guard or watch dog. After denying a prosecutor’s motion to dismiss the appeal, Polachek Gartley said she needed to review the statutes relevant to the case and did not issue an immediate decision. She has 30 days to do so.

Taroli said he would wait for Gartley’s decision but indicated he may appeal if the earlier ruling is upheld. “This is the kind of issue that typically has to go to an appellate court, because it has to do with interpreting the statute,” he said.

Libyan crimes are alleged

United Nations panel said Wednesday that Libyan government forces A have committed crimes against human-

SANAA, Yemen — Government forces and tribal fighters exchanged gun and artillery fire in Yemen’s capital early Wednesday, sending the crackle of gunfire and resounding booms over the city in fresh fighting that killed at least 41 people. The fighting spread to new areas, with tribesmen from the powerful Hasid confederation seizing buildings in neighborhoods in the city’s south and northwest. The urban battles over the last week have posed a new threat to President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s 33-year rule. For nearly four months, thousands of Yemenis have filled the streets daily, calling for demo-

cratic reforms and Saleh’s ouster. The mostly peaceful protests gave way last week to violence between Saleh’s security forces and fighters loyal to Sheik Sadeq al-Ahmar, head of the country’s largest tribal coalition. Saleh’s often violent attempts to quash the protests have led the U.S. to turn away from its one-time ally, once considered a necessary partner in fighting Yemen’s active al-Qaida branch. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday called Saleh’s refusal to step down “a source of great conflict” that has caused violence. “We cannot expect this conflict to end unless President Saleh and his government move out of the way to permit the opposition and civil society to begin a transition to political and economic reform,” she told reporters in Washington. Fighting in Sanaa raged until 5 a.m., then continued in bursts throughout the day. Witnesses said units of the elite

The U.N. investigators said there is evidence opposition forces also committed “some acts which would constitute war crimes.” Meanwhile, in Washington, the House postponed a vote on a resolution demanding an end to U.S. involvement in Libya amid fears that Democrats and Republicans would unite in backing the measure and hand President Barack Obama an embarrassing foreign policy defeat. The GOP leadership had scheduled a vote Wednesday on the resolution by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, that “directs the president to remove United States armed forces from Libya ... not later than 15 days after the adoption” of the measure.

GOP, Obama talk spending cuts

Republicans say they presented president with specifics in effort to reach a debt-reduction deal. By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Top House Republicans said they pressed President Barack Obama Wednesday for more leadership and a detailed plan on budget cuts, with one leading lawmaker accusing him of mischaracterizing a GOP Medicare proposal at the center of a partisan divide over spending. The meeting at the White House came as the GOP sought to build pressure on

Obama for trillions in spending cuts in exchange for any increase in the government’s ability to borrow. The White House had no immediate comment. “Any day Republicans and Democrats are actually having a dialogue, this is a good thing,” said Republican Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas. According to the GOP official briefed on the meeting, House Speaker John Boehner and other leaders told Obama that he hadn’t put a specific plan for spending cuts on the table. They brought up a speech he gave at George Washington University in April in which he called for deficit reduction totaling $4 trillion through spending cuts, tax increases and other measures. The Republicans said a speech isn’t a plan.

The session between Obama and House Republicans came on the heels of a symbolic and lopsided vote the day before against a GOP proposal to raise the cap on the debt limit by $2.4 trillion. Democrats said the vote was aimed more at giving tea party-backed Republicans an opportunity to broadcast a “nay” vote against the administration’s position that any increase in U.S. borrowing authority should be done as a stand-alone measure uncomplicated by difficult spending cuts to programs like Medicare. A more painful vote to raise the debt ceiling looms for Republicans this summer. In fact, Biden is leading talks on attaching spending cuts to the debt measure in advance of the Aug. 2 deadline set by the Treasury Department.

Rep. Weiner dogged by lewd Internet pic Combative N.Y. congressman denies he sent the picture and claims he is the victim of a hacker. By ANDREW MIGA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — New York Rep. Anthony Weiner denied Wednesday sending a lewd photo from his Twitter account to a 21-year-old woman, trying to calm a media furor that has only increased by the day and wasn’t put to rest by the combative lawmaker’s latest comments. Weiner also acknowledged he “can’t say with certitude” that the photo of a man’s bulging underpants wasn’t him. Weiner said Wednesday that he did not send the photo and that it was the work of a hacker. He also said he had retained an attor-

ney and hired a private security company to figure out how someone could pull off such a prank. But he also couldn’t resist joining the parade of double entendres. “I’m not sure I want to put national, federal resources into trying to figure out who posted a picture on Weiner’s website, uh, whatever,” Weiner said. “I’m not really sure it rises, no pun intended, to that level.” The photo was posted on Friday and sent to a female college student in Seattle. It was quickly deleted, but a frenzy of coverage and comment ensued on blogs, cable news outlets and other media.

The formation of the team marks a return to the counterterrorism cooperation that has led to major takedowns of al-Qaida militants. Among the confidence-building measures was a visit by the CIA to re-examine the bin Laden compound last Friday. Pakistan also returned the tail section of the U.S. stealth Blackhawk helicopter that broke off when the SEALs blew up the aircraft to destroy its secret noise- and radardeadening technology. The joint intelligence team will go after five top targets, including al-Qaida No. 3 Ayman al-Zawahri, and al-Qaida operations chief Atiya Abdel Rahman, as well as Taliban leader like Mullah Omar, all of whom U.S. intelligence officials believe are hiding in Pakistan, one U.S. official said.

The medical license of the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets will be revoked next month, the Medical Board of California announced Wednesday. The panel ruled Dr. Michael Kamrava “did not exercise sound judgment” in the transfer of 12 embryos to Suleman. Kamrava was accused by the attorney general’s office of being grossly negligent in his treatment of Suleman and two other female patients: a 48-year-old who suffered complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments. The medical board rejected many of arguments submitted by Kamrava’s lawyer, including the suggestion that Suleman failed to follow through in terminating an excessive number of fetuses.

John Grohowski, 70, of S tanley Hanover Township, passed away

NEW YORK — A combative, fashion-conscious mobster already serving a life prison term dodged a death sentence on Wednesday for ordering a gangland hit while taking control of a once-fearsome crime family. An anonymous jury deliberated less than two hours before rejecting the government’s longshot bid to have Vincent “Vinny Gorgeous” Basciano put to death and giving him another life sentence at the penalty phase of his trial in federal court in Brooklyn. The jury had previously found the former acting boss of the Bonanno crime family guilty last month of murder, racketeering, conspiracy and other charges. Prosecutors said he had orchestrated the killing of mob associate Randolph Pizzolo. Basciano, 51, cracked a slight smile and nodded at the jurors as they exited the courtroom. Moments later, U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis told defense lawyers they could meet privately with the jury and Basciano eagerly asked if he could tag along. The judge’s blunt response: “There’s not a chance in the world of that.” Prosecutors used the unprecedented testimony of former Bonanno boss Joseph Massino to try to portray Basciano as a stone-cold killer who deserved death. Massino — the highestranking member of the city’s five long-standing Mafia families to ever take the witness stand for

the government — recounted a conversation about the possibility of knocking off an assistant U.S. attorney Basciano while the prosecutor dined at his favorite Manhattan eatery to avenge an onslaught of criminal cases brought against the family leadership. “Let me kill this guy when he comes out of the restaurant,” Basciano said, according to Massino, who by mob rules had to sign off on the killing. The prosecutor, Greg Andres, had “pretty much destroyed the Bonanno family,” Massino testified. The government also sought to convince jurors that life behind bars wouldn’t prevent Basciano from trying to use visitors to sneak orders to his underworld crew — a tactic he’d used in the past. “Even with a life sentence, he will not be stopped,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicole Argentieri said in closing arguments. “His mind will always be in the street. ... The defendant has earned the ultimate punishment.” Defense attorney Richard Jasper argued the former owner of the Hello Gorgeous hair salon would pose no threat if imprisoned with other notorious gangsters and terrorists in the fortress-like lockup in Florence, Colo., “the biggest, baddest house in the federal system,” where “everybody is in lockdown.” He urged jurors to follow their consciences and “suspend the work of death until Vincent Basciano dies in a federal prison by

Dorothy Kae Billing Zack; and Seth and Sean Haines; siblings, Rose Mushalla, New Jersey; Francis Riley, Luzerne; Walter Grohowski, Wilkes-Barre; and Lorrain Pelech, New Jersey; as well as his beloved pets, Auggie, Queenie and Blackie.

himself — in God’s time, not man’s.” The jury indicated on their verdict sheet that it didn’t buy prosecutors’ argument that Basciano posed a future threat. Ten of the 12 jurors wrote their decision also was based on the fact that other mobsters who “have admitted to an equal or greater number of serious crimes ... are not facing the death penalty.” Throughout the capital case, Basciano was a colorful presence in the courtroom. He had won Garaufis’ approval to wear a wardrobe of five different suits — one for each day of the week — and always kept his full head of gray hair carefully coiffed. He also gave regular pointers to his lawyers and even sparred with the judge at length over whether he could introduce new evidence while testifying on his own behalf. “I can’t properly defend myself,” he complained in one rant before deciding not to take the stand. Last year, the judge asked the Department of Justice to reconsider bringing a death penalty case — which at the time had already cost taxpayers more than $3 million — against a defendant who was already serving life without parole for a 2007 conviction. The U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn also was defying modern history: There’s been only one federal defendant — convicted police killer Ronell Wilson — sentenced to death in the city since 1954, and that decision was overturned on appeal. But prosecutors decided to press ahead anyway and showcase the straight-talking Massino at the guilt and penalty phases of the trial.

Strong’s mental illness disputed

State judge race votes recounted


A group representing private organizations that provide children and youth services to municipalities has stepped behind a package of juvenile justice bills sponsored by state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, and supported by state Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, in response to the Luzerne County “kids for cash” scandal. On Wednesday, the Youth Services Alliance of Pennsylvania announced its support of the legislative package, which recently moved out of committee and will be debated on floor of the state legislature. The bills address problems with the state juvenile justice system exposed in the scandal, in which ex-Luzerne County judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan were accused of incarcerating juveniles for profit: • Senate Bill 815 requires legal counsel be provided for a child at every stage of a judicial proceeding; • Senate Bill 816 establishes an Office of Victim Advocate to represent and advocate for the interests of victims of juvenile crime; • Senate Bill 817 restricts the use of restraints on juveniles during court proceedings; • Senate Bill 818 requires a court to publicly state the reason for the disposition of a delinquent child on the record in open court. “Youth Services Alliance of Pennsylvania believes this package of legislation is a common-sense approach to ensuring the integrity of Pennsylvania’s juvenile justice system,” group President Judy Happ said in a statement. The Youth Services Alliance of Pennsylvania describes itself as a nonprofit volunteer organization representing private children and youth providers who deliver 80 percent of Pennsylvania’s services for abused, neglected and delinquent children and youth.

Jury will determine whether murderer will face death penalty or life without parole. By SHEENA DELAZIO DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER

Luzerne County election officials conduct a recount Wednesday in the Democratic primary race for Commonwealth Court judge. The state ordered a statewide recount because of the closeness of the results.

The money came from the “The chamber owes a sizeable By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County commissioners have not decided if they’re going to grant the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry’s request to restructure roughly $7.5 million in outstanding loans. The chamber asked commissioners in March to halt its loan repayments to the county Community Development Office until chamber-owned land was sold. The chamber made it clear the economic development organization was broke and wouldn’t be able to continue paying without revenue from land sales, commissioners said. Chamber President Todd Vonderheid said Wednesday he hopes to reach a consensus with county officials so the restructuring could be on this month’s commissioner meeting agenda. “We’re not asking for a dime of forgiveness – just time, time to meet the obligations, given the economic realities,” Vonderheid


county’s revolving loan fund, which relies on loan repayments and interest earnings to continue providing new loans to area businesses. The fund is currently valued at roughly $9 million. County Commissioner Stephen A. Urban said he and other county officials are determining the value of chamber property that would be used as collateral to ensure it would cover what’s owed to the county. “I don’t want to see the county stuck with unpaid loans down the road if the chamber defaults or cannot repay the money they owe to the Community Development Office,” Urban said. Land that is posted as collateral may be worth less than originally projected because of competition with other private developers, particularly ones that have secured tax-break incentives, said county Commissioner Thomas Cooney. County officials are also reviewing the loan documents to determine who would be first in line to claim revenue from land sales if the chamber defaults, said Urban and Cooney.

amount of money to the bank as well as the county,” Urban said. Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla said the chamber would have to present its proposal at a commissioner work session to give the public the opportunity to understand and comment on the specifics before a decision is made by commissioners. Commissioners reluctantly gave the chamber a break on its loans in May 2009, agreeing to halt repayment until the end of December 2010 because of the economy. The chamber made a $2 million balloon payment at the end of last year and started repaying again in January. The chamber is current on its repayments, said county Community Development Director Andy Reilly. In addition to the $7.5 million in outstanding loans, the chamber received $2.5 million from the revolving loan fund for the downtown Wilkes-Barre theater and loft project in 2004. That loan will be forgiven if the project creates at least 100 jobs and meets other conditions.

WILKES-BARRE – A forensic neuropsychologist conducted several tests on convicted murderer James Strong in 1997, none of which showed brain damage or mental illnesses, the doctor testified Wednesday. Daniel Martell testified as a rebuttal witness called by prosecutors in the fourth day of testimony at a sentencing hearing for Strong, 59, who was convicted last week of first-degree murder in the August 1983 death of John Strock in Dorrance Township. Strong’s attorneys completed calling witnesses Wednesday afternoon. Attorneys are expected to wrap up testimony this morning before presenting their closing arguments. The jury that convicted Strong of Strock’s murder then will be sent to deliberate whether Strong will face the death penalty or life in prison without parole. Martell testified he gave Strong dozens of different tests to determine his IQ, memory function, learning ability, language skills and other areas. Strong, Martell said, scored in the average range for a man of his age with his level of education, on all the tests. Martell said none of Strong’s scores was indicative of brain damage nor did any show he suffers from a major mental illness. Martell did say, however, that Strong has anti-social personality features. Two doctors who testified Wednesday for defense attorneys said Strong does, in fact, suffer from brain damage and major mental illnesses. Strong was also given tests to

determine if he was faking his answers, Martell said, to which the doctor felt Strong was being honest. Strong “(Strong) has no significant impairment in testing,” Martell said. Local neurosurgeon David Sedor reviewed medical records and MRI scans of Strong, to which he testified there is nothing in Strong’s brain that would affect his cognitive functioning. Sedor testified a malformation on Strong’s brain stem, likely there from birth, according to other testimony, is an entanglement of blood vessels. Other white masses in Strong’s brain, visible in MRI scans, Sedor said, are areas of the brain that deteriorate over time with aging, as it would with any other person’s brain. “As we age, the appearance of the brain changes,” Sedor said. Prosecutors also called a Luzerne County Correctional Facility medical records worker who testified that in the 10 years Strong has been at the facility, he has complained only once of a headache. Strong’s attorneys, over the past few days, presented testimony that Strong suffered from severe chronic headaches his entire life. Robert Johnson, a doctor of criminal justice who specializes in the prison life of inmates, and a professor at American University in Washington, D.C., testified Strong has already adapted the mindset that he will spend the rest of his life in prison, and has had an “exemplary” stay at the county prison. Strong mentors other inmates, takes advantage of programs available and has even earned two college degrees, Johnson testified.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “The (Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities) Act will crack down on cities whose elected officials have willfully chosen to not enforce immigration policy by withholding all federal funding from them as long as their sanctuary policies are in place.” U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta The freshman congressman, and Hazleton’s former mayor, this week unveiled his federal legislation aimed at suppressing illegal immigration.


Brighten future of solar industry


ITH Pennsylvania boasting the nation’s second largest number of solarindustry jobs, state officials would be foolish to let the sun set on such a nascent but promising industry. But that could happen due to a temporary mismatch between solar-energy financing and market demand. The construction of more than 4,000 solar projects has been a roaring success, responsible for generating several thousand jobs at 600 solar businesses. Growing that industry from scratch, with state and federal aid, also boosted the use of nonpolluting and renewable energy. That will be particularly helpful in meeting summer’s peak demand. Yet, the boom in solar projects has outpaced the amount of solar energy utilities are required to buy under the state’s alternative-energy rules. That has depressed the value of solar-energy credits needed to provide a return on photovol-

taic solar systems, which have a steep, up-front price tag. The best way for state officials to spur solar to new heights would be to boost the modest solar-energy standard – now far lower than neighboring states, at only 0.5 percent – by 2021. But last year, that idea ran into strong opposition from Exelon and other utilities, coal producers and business groups – and a certain Republican candidate for governor. Fortunately, a fellow Republican, state Rep. Chris Ross from Chester County, unveiled a legislative proposal last week that should be more to Gov. Tom Corbett’s liking. Ross would accelerate the amount of solar energy utilities are required to purchase for the next few years, but leave the overall standard at only 0.5 percent. The Ross proposal amounts to a tweak, but one that could be critical to maintaining the state’s foothold in solar energy. The Philadelphia Inquirer

uch has been made in recent weeks about Congressman Lou Barletta’s decision not to allow personal cameras into town hall meetings. I agree with the congressman’s decision for many reasons. First, many attendees of town hall meetings do not want to appear in YouTube videos and online blogs. Random people with cameras can easily intimidate people from attending these meetings. Second, by still allowing the news media to bring cameras, the people of the region will get a true perspective of what happened at the meeting, not a 30-second clip of some left-wing activist screaming at our congressman. Barletta has gone out of his way to be accessible to the public. Our former congressman, Paul Kanjorski, wouldn’t even hold face-to-face town hall meetings with the people. I commend Congressman Barletta for the great job he is doing for our region, and for his accessibility and the accessibility of his office staff. I am proud to say he is my congressman.

Independent candidates seeking voters’ support


ow that the dust has settled after the taxpayer-funded primary contests, the view of November’s Luzerne County Council battlefield is clearer. Voters need to be aware that at least two third-party candidates will be hard at work gathering the nearly 1,000 signatures required to appear on the General Election ballot. There is no air of sophistication, nor a long list of credentials, that follows these gentlemen. There is just a hard-nosed, dogged determination to do right for the downtrodden taxpayers of Luzerne County. Tim Mullen is an Army combat veteran of the Iraq war who currently works as a registered nurse. Charlie “Bible Buck” Hatchko is a retired truck driver/Teamster warehouseman/prison guard. Both men have been taxpayers in Luzerne County most of their lives. Each leads the pack of contenders in his own distinct area. Mr. Hatchko considers himself by far the most morally conservative candidate, which is a prerequisite for the cleanout of this ethics-challenged county. Mr. Mullen bills himself as the most fiscally conservative candidate in a county that has racked up a debt fast approaching a half a billion dollars. Mr. Hatchko has vast experience with collective bargaining negotiations. Mr. Mullen takes a strong anti-public service union stance. Both men have rock-solid, anti-nepotism

and anti-cronyism positions. They assure people that the taxpayers of Luzerne County will never again be viewed as sheep that need a regular fleecing. Both agree that the county’s large elderly population bears a disproportionate slice of the suffering. Both men, however, are compassionate, in that they both agree that if possible attrition, rather than layoffs, should be employed as a means of reducing county expenditures and paying down debt. Both men agree in a fair workingman’s wage, but not at the expense of the homeowners, many of whom are elderly and the least able to bear the brunt of further property tax increases. Neither of these men will ask you for your hard-earned money to support their cause. They ask you only to spread word of their truly independent efforts to right the wrongs of the past in Luzerne County. Tim Mullen Kingston Township and Charlie Hatchko Jenkins Township

Weis Markets settlement falls short for this writer


was annoyed May 15 when I saw the fine print at the bottom of the Weis Markets flier in an area newspaper. There was information about a class-action settlement in the amount of $7.50 for people who used their credit cards at Weisowned stores from 2006 to 2008. Weis would routinely display much of the customer’s credit card number on its receipts, thus exposing this private information. What did the court figure the cost of this blunder to be? Seven dollars and 50 cents per effected customer. You tell me, readers, what will $7.50 buy us? Not a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk! Is that justice? Answer me this, Weis: Did the big law-


yers who settled this case get $7.50? I wonder, did they shop at Weis? Tell me, Weis, are you going to run more of these ads in the future so everyone concerned has a chance to become aware of their rights? Or, better yet, why not run something on television for our seniors? Another question: Is it $7.50 per credit card user or per household? A word of advice to the public: Claim your $7.50. Imagine $7.50 times 2,000 unclaimed customers. That’s a pretty penny that Weis gets to keep in its pockets. As you know, prices probably will keep going up whether you claim this $7.50 or not. And it’s not because of gas. It’s because Weis presumably will pass the cost of this settlement on to you. Where is the justice? Rhonda Ramcallian Wilkes-Barre

Commission’s license fees within reasonable range


fter reading the letter from George W. Gross of Dallas (“Shooting enthusiast says range permit no bargain,” May 14), I decided to look further into his comments. On the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s website, I discovered additional licensing information that he had overlooked and might want to consider. Yes, a “range permit” is $30 annually; however, those people who have abused the privilege of using the Game Commission ranges are responsible for the permit having to be instituted. It is sad to say, but “the thoughtlessness of a few causes the penalty for many.” The cost of maintaining the ranges uses Commission funds that are needed elsewhere. With limited funding, our Game and Fish commissions are rated among the top in the nation, and Pennsylvanians should be proud of the job they are doing. A review of license costs lists a “senior” (older than 65) hunting license at only $13.70 annually. For George, that would be only $27.40 for two senior licenses. This would be a savings of $32.60 over the cost of two annual range permits. Depending on how many years George and his wife feel they would desire to use the ranges, there also is for his consideration a “senior lifetime hunting” license for $51.70, renewable each year at no cost. For those seniors who still hunt, there also is a “senior combination hunting lifetime” license costing $101.50, which includes hunting, trapping, muzzleloader and archery; along with use of the ranges – and with no annual renewal cost. For seniors, these are all excellent offerings. One final thought: Individuals using the ranges for target practice will in most cases pay more for the ammunition they use in one outing than the cost of a permit for using the ranges all year.

All the tenants were provided food and clothing and put up in hotels for at least three days that could extend to six days under certain circumstances, said Brian Wrightson, Red Cross director for emergency services in Lacka-

of Davis Place, Wilkes-Barre. Moore, originally from the Bronx, N.Y., had a last known address of Helen Street, Plains Township. Autopsies on the two men were performed Wednesday by forensic pathologist Dr. Gary Ross at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. Lisman said the autopsies revealed no immediate signs of foul play, sug-

She then called Jablonski and Vivian arriving at Sullivan Street around 3 a.m. “As soon as we parked our emergency response vehicle, we heard a big crack from lightning, and I’m thinking to myself, ‘We parked under a tree,’ ” Mizenko said. Her worries quickly transferred to the tenants, including several children, who were mingling near their apartments

Anyone with information on family members is asked to contact the coroner’s office at 570 825-1664 or Detective Ron Foy at the Wilkes-Barre Police Department. Firefighters and an excavator operator removing what remained of the burned house found the two men’s bodies Tuesday morning. Neighbors said the house had been va-

The fire spread to 67 Sullivan St., an apartment attached to two other apartment units, displacing 15 tenants. Coroner John Corcoran said the fire department, after the fire was extinguished, received an anonymous phone call saying a person may be inside the house. The search for the cause of the blaze is on-going.

“She was scared and the hearing aid calmed her down,” Mizenko said. “She was able to hear and realize what was happening.” “This is what we are trained to do. Nobody gets excited; we get there and help the clients to whatever they need,” Jablonski said. Jablonski, Mizenko and Vivian have all been deployed to assist victims of national disasters in Florida and Louisiana. Jablonski has been a volunteer since 1972 when Tropical Storm Agnes hit the region, and has been more active since he retired

in 2009. Mizenko has volunteered for 17 years and remembers being helped by the Red Cross during Agnes. Vivian has been a Red Cross volunteer since 2004. Wrightson said the local Red Cross chapter is always in need of volunteers. “In the past 12 months, we’ve responded to 160 structure fires in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties,” Wrightson said. “Our goal is to make sure the client knows they have support and to know somebody is there for them.”

Feb. 12, 2009 – the date he entered his original guilty plea – to April 30, 2009, the date SERS halted the benefits. SERS maintains Conahan was not entitled to those benefits based on the guilty plea. The withdrawal of the appeal will have no impact on the $302,777 that Conahan withdrew from his pension January 2008, when he retired from the bench. The money consisted of $208,964 in contributions Conahan made and $93,812 in interest those contributions had accrued. SERS was not able to seek to recoup that money because the withdrawal was made prior to charges being filed against Conahan.

Obama administration proposals, which they regard as overregulation, said Chris Crawford, a spokesman for the chairman of the Appropriations Committee’s agriculture subcommittee, Jack Kingston, R-Ga., Crawford said the marketing guidelines, released last month, are “classic nanny-state overreach.” Though the guidelines, which would restrict which foods could be marketed to children, are voluntary, many companies are concerned that they will be penalized if they don’t follow them. The bill questions whether the Agriculture Department should spend money to be part of the marketing effort. “Our concern is those voluntary guidelines are back-door regulation,” he said, deploring the fact that kids can watch shows that depict sex and drugs on MTV, but “you cannot see an advertisement for Tony the Tiger during the commercial

The effort would dial back many of first lady Michelle Obama’s priorities in her “Let’s Move” campaign to curb childhood obesity and hunger. “This shows a very clear trend in trying to undermine some of the important gains in nutrition policy,” said Margo Wootan, director of nutrition policy at the advocacy group Center for Science in the Public Interest. The overall spending bill would cut billions from USDA and FDA budgets, including for domestic feeding programs and international food aid. Even after some of the money was restored Tuesday, the bill would still cut about $650 million — or 10 percent — from the Women, Infants and Children program that feeds and educates mothers and their children. It would cut almost 12 percent of the Food and Drug Administration’s $2.5 billion budget, straining the agency’s efforts to implement a new food safety law signed by the president early this year.








Yankees defeat Indians in pitchers duel Mitchell hurls seven shutout frames; Pena delivers game-winning single.

By PETE CAVA For the Times Leader

INDIANAPOLIS – In a game that seemed to have more zeroes than the Battle of Midway, Scranton/WilkesBarre and the host Indianapolis Indians traded blanks Wednesday afternoon until the Yankees eked out an eighth-inning run for a 1-0 triumph. . Scranton/Wilkes-Barre has now won 15 of 19 contests at Victory Field since 2007.





In a tight duel with Indianapolis southpaw Brian Burres, Yankee righthander D.J. Mitchell gave up five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out five. Burres scattered three hits and gave

up a pair of walks through seven, while notching five strikeouts. The Yankees scored the game’s only run off left-hander Tony Watson (2-3), the second of three Indianapolis pitchers. “All our guys that came in, and all their guys that came in, all of them pitched well today,” said Mitchell (4-3), the lanky Clemson product who has now won four of his last five decisions after an 0-2 start. Mitchell mixed up a fastball, change and curve to keep the Indians off-balance. “They’re a good-hitting team,” he said. “I’ve faced them before, and

they’ve hit me pretty well. “I think the part that got me over the hump today was being able to throw my off-speed on any count. I was able to get out of some jams early, and also in the seventh, late.” Ramiro Pena went 2-for-4 for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and knocked in the decisive run. But the shortstop’s biggest contribution was his glovework.

Berwick’s Alex Lorson and Manheim Township’s Dani Engwall fight for control of the ball during a PIAA playoff at Lake Lehman High School.

Manheim Twp. punctures Berwick

LEHMAN TWP. – Berwick had spent nearly 23 hours playing soccer this season, yet allowed just eight goals. But not even two minutes into Wednesday’s PIAA girls soccer firstround game, the Dawgs were behind. And Manheim Township wasn’t done. The Blue Streaks took control in the second half with three more scores, eliminating District 2 champion Berwick 4-0 at Lake-Lehman High School. District 3 sixth seed Manheim Township (14-6-2) moved to Saturday’s quarterfinals and will play D11 runner-up Easton (19-5), a 3-2 winner over D3 fourth seed Trinity. Berwick ended its season at 15-2-1, taking home the Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1-A and district titles.


“I told them to be proud of what they MANHEIM accomplished,” BerTOWNSHIP wick coach Paul DiPippa said. “We had a great season. We need to build off of BERWICK this. That’s where we want to be – like that. We want to play like that, spread the field and do things they were doing. But I’m proud of our girls.” Manheim Township’s first goal would be considered a “cheapie” as Jackie Poucel took advantage of a Berwick defensive miscue to score from 4 yards out with 1:18 expired. The other three, though, demonstrated how strong teams from out of the area are despite misleading seedings. Danni Engwall ran past a Berwick defender on the left wing and angled


in to score 17 minutes into the second half, giving Manheim Township a fairly comfortable 2-0 lead. “They’re a good team. They made us run a lot,” DiPippa said. “Their passing made us run more than we’re used to. (It’s) a different style of play. “They sent balls into space and ran onto them, and we had a hard time covering that. There was a big difference. And they had speed. We usually see speed, but not crisp passing like that.” Prior to the 2-0 deficit, Berwick had a couple opportunities. Bella Jaffin led Caty Davenport down the middle, but Davenport’s 23-yarder sailed high. A few minutes later, Davenport made a short pass to Karleigh Hartman in front of the goal, but the chance was broken up. See BERWICK, Page 4B


Using their sticks to find world of kicks


hey lied to Lauren Skudalski when they tried to woo her into the sport of lacrosse. But they piqued her curiosity at the same time. “When I came to Sem, they actually told me it was like field hockey,” Skudalski said. “It’s nothing like field hockey.” Their final season playing this intriguing sport turned out to be unlike anything Wyoming Seminary’s senior lacrosse players had ever experienced before. They won the District 2 title. They won their first-ever play-in game to the PIAA state tournament. And once they reached state play, the Blue Knights delivered a strong performance behind a spectacular five-goal game from Ashley Hess. That they didn’t defeat the Cocalico Eagles in the first round of states ultimately didn’t matter. The real meaning came from the enjoyable experience the Blue Knights gained from the sport, and the luster they brought to it at their school. “We were all really excited,” Hess said after Sem’s special season ended Wednesday with a gritty 15-12 defeat at the hands of Cocalico at Nazareth High School’s Andrew Leh Stadium. “First time in history we’ve ever been here. “Big moment for us.” Actually, it was this group of players who made the sport of lacrosse start to seem big at Sem. Some of them, like Skudalski, are better known for winning titles while playing field hockey. Others, like Hess, excel in sports that seem to fly under the radar in high school. “I also play ice hockey,” said Hess, who will continue her career on the ice at Manhattanville College next season. “I think right now lacrosse is on the brink of an upswing, especially for Sem.” Only because the Blue Knights of 2011 took their best swing at glory. They didn’t have this chance before. The PIAA only recently accepted girls lacrosse as high school sport, and Wyoming Seminary only gained acceptance to play as a PIAA squad this season. One year, one state playoff appearance. “When we joined the PIAA, that was a goal we had,” said Seminary coach Catie Kersey, who’s coached the sport at the school for nine seasons. It wasn’t hard to see why the Blue Knights met their mission. “It was all the girls,” Kersey said, tears of pride filling her eyes. “They were really hard-working. These girls just battled.” To the very end. With time running out on a season that finished 13-4 overall, the Blue Knights knew they faced an insurmountable five-goal deficit. But Ann Romanowski scored and Skudalski found the net not long after, pulling Sem within 15-12 with 2:30 left. The rest of the time ran out on the Blue Knights’ season, but not on their fun. “We were playing to make a name for ourselves,” Skudalski said. In the process, they set a standard for future Blue Knights teams to meet. “More people (at Sem) are picking up lacrosse sticks every day,” Hess said. All because of a group that never really put those sticks down, but used them to build a solid foundation before passing them on. Paul Sokoloski is a Times Leader sports columnist.

National puts Nix on Phillies The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Laynce Nix hit a homer and made a game-saving catch, helping Washington Nationals starter John Lannan beat the Philadelphia Phillies for the first time in 14 tries, 2-1 on Wednesday. Lannan (3-5) entered the game 0-10 with a 6.44 ERA against Philadelphia. On a stifling day with temperatures well into the 90s, Lannan pitched into the sixth inning, allowing just an unearned run and four hits to record his first victory in his last eight starts. Todd Coffey, Doug Slaten, Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen held the Phillies scoreless over the last 3 2-3 innings. Storen earned his 10th save in 11 opportunities.

ATLANTA — Tommy Hanson went six strong innings on a sweltering night, Freddie Freeman drove in two runs and Martin Prado homered, leading the Atlanta Braves past San Diego and preventing the Padres from sweeping the series. Hanson (6-4) allowed just three hits, giving up both runs on Kyle Phillips’ two-run homer in the second.

Astros 3, Cubs 1

Pirates 9, Mets 3

CHICAGO — Brett Myers allowed one run over six innings, Michael Bourn hit a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh and the Astros beat the Cubs to finish off a threegame sweep. Myers (2-4) won his sixth straight decision against the Cubs, improving to 12-3 with a 2.12 ERA in his career against the Astros’ NL Central rivals.

NEW YORK — Kevin Correia became the first eightgame winner in the majors and the pesky Pittsburgh Pirates scratched out five infield singles in a five-run seventh inning to beat the New York Mets. Andrew McCutchen made a dazzling catch in deep rightcenter and Correia (8-4) pitched six poised innings to help the Pirates improve to 17-14 on the road — matching last season’s win total.

Reds 4, Brewers 3

CINCINNATI — Jay Bruce and Joey Votto hit two-run homers during Cincinnati’s late comeback, and Francisco Cordero got his 300th career save, securing the Reds’ win over the Milwaukee Brewers. The struggling Reds won for only the fourth time in their last 15 games, relying on their two best hitters — and their reliable closer — to pull it out. Bruce hit his 17th homer in the seventh inning, ending Shaun Marcum’s shutout bid. Votto added a two-run shot in the eighth off Kameron Loe

PHOENIX — Justin Upton’s bloop single to right field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth drove in the winning run in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ victory over the Florida Marlins. Willie Bloomquist led off the ninth against Clay Hensley (0-2) with an infield single. Hensley struck out pinch-hitter Sean Burroughs then left with what appeared to be a shoulder injury.

Yanks beat Athletics for 10th straight time OAKLAND, Calif. — A.J. Burnett settled down after an early homer to snap an 11-start winless streak on the road, and Nick Swisher homered against his former team to help the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics for the 10th straight time, 4-2 on Wednesday.

BOSTON — Paul Konerko hit a go-ahead single in the seventh inning and a two-run homer in the ninth to lead the Chicago White Sox to a win over the Boston Red Sox and a sweep of their three-game series. Boston, which had just two hits in the last seven innings, lost its fourth straight game for the first time since a six-game, season-opening slide. Orioles 2, Mariners 1

SEATTLE — Adam Jones had three hits against his former team, including the goahead homer into the upper deck in the eighth inning, leading the Baltimore Orioles to a victory over the Seattle Mariners. Jones turned on a fastball from Jamey Wright (1-2) on the inside corner of the plate and hit a rocket into the second level seating in left field to give Baltimore the lead. Rangers 3, Rays 0

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Colby Lewis scattered four hits over eight innings, Elvis An-


drus had two RBIs and the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays. Lewis (5-5) struck out eight and walked two. Neftali Feliz allowed a leadoff single to Ben Zobrist in the ninth before wrapping up his 11th save and completing the shutout. Royals 2, Angels 0

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Billy Butler hit a game-winning, two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Kansas City Royals a victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Jeff Francoeur singled with one out before Butler connected off Scott Downs (3-2). The ball hit behind the outfield padding in left-center field and bounced back into play, and the umpires initially ruled it a double before video showed it to be a home run. Tigers 4, Twins 2

DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer in the third and Rick Porcello pitched into the seventh inning, lifting the Detroit Tigers to a win over the Minnesota Twins. Detroit swept the threegame series and has won four straight, while the Twins have lost 10 of 12, falling to 17-37 for the worst record in baseball. Indians 13, Blue Jays 9

TORONTO — Matt LaPorta hit a three-run homer and Cleveland built a big lead from the very start, helping Josh Tomlin and the Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays 13-9 Wednesday night. The Indians scored four times while chasing Kyle Drabek in the first inning. LaPorta’s shot highlighted an eightrun burst in the third that made it 12-0.

Wilkes-Barre lacrosse team is official Friday By JOE SOPRANO

Wilkes-Barre will officially have a new professional sports team on Friday, but those fans wanting to race out and buy a hat a shirt with the team’s new logo will have to wait a bit longer. The area’s entry into the North American Lacrosse League will be formally announced at a press conference at 2 p.m. Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena.

The name for the indoor lacrosse team will not be announced at the press conference, however. What will be announced will be the ownership group, headed by Easton area businessman Jim Jennings, and the fact that the team will play at an 8-game home season at the Wilkes-Barre Township Arena. Scheduled to appear at the press conference are Wilkes-Barre mayor Tom

CLASS 3A Continued from Page 1B

Condeelis, Kyle Custer, Wes Custer, Ryan Goodwin, Healey, Mike Papi and Ty Saylor. Healey struck out nine in a complete-game victory against the Crusaders, going 2-for-3 with a double at the plate. Condeelis doubled twice. “Maturity. I think that’s been the key for us,” Tigers coach Gary Custer said after beating Dallas in the district quarterfinals. Tunkhannock, the second seed in the 3A bracket these past two seasons, is hopeful that the experience will pay off against the No. 4 Invaders. It took a bit of a wake-up call in the playoff opener this time around to get the Tigers (15-2) going. Hosting 15th-seeded Crestwood in the first round, the Tigers trailed heading into

the bottom of the sixth before scoring four times for a 6-3 win. “I thought we took Crestwood a little bit lightly,” Custer said. “I thought we relaxed a little bit against Crestwood. But we were mentally prepared (after that). I think we’re in good shape now.” Like last season, the Tigers seem to have found some magic for the playoffs, playing some of their best baseball of the year. “I think we’re at the top of the ladder,” Custer said headed into the semis. Abington Heights proceeded to give a serious scare to the Tigers, but the sixth-seeded Comets were in Class 4A just a few years ago and had knocked off Pittston Area in the quarterfinals this past Friday. Now Tunkhannock faces another team from the Lackawanna League’s top division in West Scranton (15-3). The Invaders beat Honesdale, Berwick and No. 1 Valley View to reach the title game.

Lawyer: Pacquiao settles defamation lawsuit LOS ANGELES — A lawyer for Manny Pacquiao says the boxer has settled a defamation lawsuit against other boxing world figures who intimated he used performance enhancing drugs. Attorney Daniel Petrocelli said in a release Wednesday that Pacquiao settled with former boxer Oscar de La Hoya and Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions on confi-

chise. According to sources, the team and the arena are currently ironing out details of a five-year lease. The league will begin play in January and crown a champion by the end of April, allowing players to play in Major League Lacrosse. Jennings has owned several teams and served as commissioner of the National Lacrosse League from 2000 to

dential terms. Messages left with Schaefer and de La Hoya attorney Jeffrey Spitz weren’t returned. Pacquiao’s boxing rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Mayweather’s father and uncle also were named in the defamation suit, but Petrocelli said they aren’t included in the settlement. Mayweather lawyer Mark Tratos didn’t return a call.

2009. He got his start in professional sports in 1982 as a ticket sales executive for the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League. He has owned and operated three minor league basketball franchises – the Florida Beach Dogs, the New Jersey Shorecats and the Pennsylvania ValleyDawgs. He is currently president of Waterbuck Media in Easton.

go out and get simple. When we try to be too cute and too complicated, if everybody’s not on the same page, it doesn’t come off. By simple, play the ball the way you’re facing (and) play the ball to feet.” The Blue Streaks essentially put away the game in the 64th minute using that tactic when Kaileen Delaney dropped a long pass to Leslie Henny breaking down the middle.

through.” For one thing, the venue could have an impact. Squaring off at PNC Field in Moosic will be fairly alien to high school players not accustomed to the size and dimensions of a pro stadium. During the regular season, the Royals (11-7) hit 15 home runs as a team while the Black Knights (17-1) slammed 13. Redeemer’s Christian Choman and Lehman’s Josh Everett have homered in each of their respective team’s three playoff games so far. Continuing those streaks at PNC Field instead of Hollenback Park and Lake-Lehman High School will be tougher. “We’re still going to try and play our game,” Redeemer coach Chris Ritsick said. “I think playing at the bigger ballpark may cut down a little bit on runs, being that it takes the home run ball out of things a bit.” On the other side of the coin, the stadium can also be tough on outfielders, who have to deal with much more room for balls to drop in, as well as the occasional shot off the wall. Regardless, both starting pitchers – Tyler McGovern for the top-seeded Knights and Ted Ritsick for the No. 7 Royals – know that the opposing lineup will provide a tough challenge. “He’s very excited,” Chris Ritsick said of his ace. “He’s a threeyear starter and he’s always up for big situations for us. Teddy always wants the ball. He doesn’t back down and he’s looking forward to the opportunity this year.” Though the teams play in separate divisions, the players are still familiar with one another. The schools faced off in the 2009 district quarterfinals, won 7-3 by the Knights. Four current Lehman starters – Bryan Mathers, Zack Yursha, Adam Paulauskas and Ryan Murphy – played in that game, along with three for the Royals – Ritsick, Mark Malloy and Steve Ruch. “We know them,” LeValley said. “We played them two years ago. We’ve played these kids from teeners and little league all the way up. Choman and Ruch and Malloy and (Pat) Condo and all those kids. … We’re familiar with them.”

Jim Calhoun remains mum on future at UConn DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) — Jim Calhoun says he still hasn’t decided whether to return for a 26th season as coach of the Connecticut men’s basketball team. Less than two months after the Huskies won their third NCAA championship, Calhoun told

graduates of the high school where he coached and taught that “the best years are ahead of you.” But he wouldn’t say how he would spend his own future. Calhoun spoke Wednesday at graduation ceremonies at Dedham High School.

Nowitzski injury takes spotlight

Raffi Torres scored with just 18.5 seconds left in third period to lift Vancouver.

Torres nets winner for Canucks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Raffi Torres ended an ugly Stanley Cup finals opener with a dramatic flash of beauty for the Vancouver Canucks. Torres scored on an exceptional pass from Jannik Hansen with 18.5 seconds to play, and the Canucks stunned the Boston Bruins 1-0 Wednesday night. Roberto Luongo made 36 saves in his third shutout of the postseason for the Canucks, but Boston’s CANUCKS Tim Thomas matched him until Torres — the only VanBRUINS couver player with previous finals experience — slipped through the defense for a beautiful goal that launched a wild celebration at Rogers Arena. “I thought we were going to play all night the way it was going,” Luongo said. “It was an exciting way to start the series. It was such a close game. It could’ve gone either way, a flip of the coin.” Thomas stopped 33 shots for the Bruins, who went scoreless on six power plays. Boston played outstanding defense until the NHL’s highest-scoring team finally connected in the final minute. Game 2 is Saturday night in Vancouver. Boston also killed six Canucks power plays in an outstanding defensive game led by captain Zdeno Chara, but Torres’ goal ended the 37-year-old Thomas’ shutout streak at just under 129 minutes. He hadn’t allowed a goal since Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, shutting out Tampa Bay in Game 7. Ryan Kesler’s pass set up the final-minute scoring sequence in a tense, tight-checking game featuring stellar defense and badtempered play by both clubs. Canucks forward Alex Burrows even appeared to bite the gloved finger of Boston’s Patrice Bergeron after the first-period buzzer, raising the possibility of a suspension for the Canucks’ rambunctious first-line wing. Both teams entered their first playoff meeting looking to end lengthy Stanley Cup droughts. Vancouver has never won the NHL title in four decades of existence, losing its only two trips to the finals in 1982 and 1994. Boston has lost five straight finals since winning in 1972. After a full week off, the Canucks came out with palpable energy from a crowd that shook the arena violently enough to dislodge a bit of confetti left over from the Western Conference finals onto the ice before the game. But the officials kept both teams on a steady parade to the penalty box in the first two periods, a big change from the Bruins’ penalty-free Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay. The Bruins again were hurt by their terrible power play, which managed just five goals in 61 chances in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Ditka lauds Scouts as ‘future’

By RYAN KONOPKI For The Times Leader

WILKES-BARRE – Hall of Fame coach and NFL icon Mike Ditka confessed when he accepted an invitation to be the guest speaker at Genetti’s Hotel and Convention Center in his home state, he had no idea what he had agreed to. “I didn’t know what I was getting myself in to, but I said OK,” the Hall of Famer said. “To be honest, I am really glad I did.” Ditka spoke Wednesday night in front of a packed dining hall at the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council Boy Scouts of America’s 28th annual Distinguished Citizens Award Dinner . Charles E. Parente and Tim Speicher – both former scouts – received the two awards being presented, handed to them by Co-Chairmen Matthew A. Cartwright, Esq. and Greg Collins. The awards are given to honor those for their commitment to the betterment of Northeastern Pennsylvania, according to the organizations website. The dinner helped raised over $162,000 that will go to towards operation coast of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, as well as the Boys Scouts of America, according to Cartwright. Ditka used his opening comments to talk about the bleak times in American society today and its bright future in the scouts. “We as Americans take for granted our freedoms and liberties,” Ditka said. “To see these young men up here creating a better system for better opportunities throughout their lives is special.” Speicher earned four degrees, including one from Harvard Business School, and is currently the president of T-R Associates, which he founded in 1976. His company is a global supply service to oil exploration companies, as well as a regional computer hardware assembly and network products distribution. “The most difficult part of this is thanking everyone who’s been a part of this journey,” said Speicher. He is also the Past Commander for the Ambrose Revels American legion Post #328. Parente, a King’s College alum, is an investing partner, whose business investments include CP Media, owner and operator of Channel 56, WOLF-TV and CEO of Pagnotti and Enterprises, Inc. “I am very grateful for the honor bestowed on us tonight,” said Parente. “I owe a personal debt of gratitude to the coach who took the time to participate in this event. I know he did this as a favorforme,butIalsoknowthathe the fourth, with another boost from Pena. Between singles by Alex Presley and Hague, Marte lined a sharp drive that Pena snared with an acrobatic dive to his right. “I was just trying to keep focused on the game, and keep my eye on the ball,” said Pena. “It was a good thing I made it.” The runners moved up on a wild pitch, but were left stranded

Boy Scouts honor Parente, Speicher The Times Leader staff

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council-Boy Scouts of America honored two area businessmen as Distinguished Citizens at a dinner Wednesday night. Charles E. Parente, a King’s College cum laude alumnus, is an investing partner in numerous business ventures including CP Media LLC, owner and operator of Channel 56, WOLF-TV. He is also chief executive officer and investor in Pagnotti Enterprises Inc. Parente had been involved as managing partner and CEO of Parente, Randolph PC, certified public accountants, and president and CEO of C-TEC Corp. He and his wife, Mary, have four children. “I am very grateful for the honor bestowed on us tonight,” said Parente. “I owe a personal debt of gratitude to

believes in scouting as a means of aiding in the formation of strong leaders.” A former boy scout himself, Ditka is well-known for his iconic image as the head coach of the 1985 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears. Recalling his days at Aliquippa to his All-American career at the University of Pittsburgh to head coach in the NFL, Ditka said today’s citizens need to adjust how they think and act. “Our freedoms and liberties don’t exist anywhere else in the world,” said Ditka. “Living in America is not about holding your hand out, it’s about raising the country up. “If we don’t understand that, when Durham and Lambo both fouled out. The Indians threatened again in the seventh after Mitchell fanned the first two batters. Toregas then lined a double down the left field line and took third on a wild pitch, but Mitchell retired Gorkys Hernandez on a fly to center for the final out. In the eighth inning Watson took over for Burres. Dan Brewer

the coach who took the time to participate in this event. I know he did this as a Parente favor for me, but I also know that he believes in scouting as a means of aiding in the formation of strong leaders.” Also honored was Thomas (Tim) Speicher, president of T-R Associates, a telecommunications equipment fabricator which he founded in 1976. Speicher earned degrees from Keystone College, the University of Scranton, Penn State University and Harvard Business School. “The most difficult part of this is thanking everyone who’s been a part of this journey,” said Speicher. Speicher and his wife, Joann, have two children.

we don’t understand a lot,” he added. Only the second person in history to win a championship as a player, assistant coach and head coach, Ditka also gave his opinon on the current NFL lockout and sarcastically wondered aloud as to why a problem even existed. “It’s a power struggle. It’s about egos,” he said. “I don’t knowwhattheycouldbefighting about, it’s only $9 billion dollars.” Ditka concluded by saying there should be no question why the scouts will be successful in the near future. “These kids work their butts off, its not complicated,” Ditka said. “They got their heads screwed on right.” greeted the left-hander with a double and advanced to third on Luis Nunez’s single. When Austin Krum bounced back to the box, Nunez took second while Brewer held up at third. Indianapolis closer Tom Wood replaced Watson, and got Pena on a grounder to first. But Brewer crossed home plate on the play to end the deadlock.

MIAMI — Brian Cardinal took one look at Dirk Nowitzki’s injured finger, turned to the Dallas Mavericks’ trainer and recommended his treatment plan. “Cut it at the knuckle,” Cardinal said, making a scissors motion with his right hand. “Like Ronnie Lott.” Good thing “Dr.” Cardinal is a backup forward whose specialty is comic relief. Nowitzki’s injury was more source of fun than concern Wednesday, starting from the moment he woke up. He expected the torn tendon at the tip of his left middle finger to be sore and throbbing and it wasn’t either. So only the devilish teasers were even considering a Lottlike amputation of his fingertip. Nowitzki took the practice court wearing a splint to keep the finger straight and figures it’ll be mostly a nuisance for the next month or two. He and shooting coach Holger Geschwindner were planning their own workout later Wednesday to see which moves Nowitzki can and can’t make and to come up with ways to compensate, starting with Game 2 of the NBA finals against the Miami Heat on Thursday night. “Hey, (Rajon) Rondo played with one arm, so he might be able to play with nine fingers,” Geschwindner said, smiling. Nowitzki already is experimenting with different bandages. Trainer Casey Smith said, “We’re going to make it as small as we can,” and indeed Nowitzki’s wrap at the start of practice was smaller than what he had at a news conference a few minutes before. He was down to a hard splint under the knuckle at the tip of his left middle finger, held on by strips of white tape. The bandage looped around the knuckle and tip, leaving the nail and top exposed. Nowitzki was hurt trying to

strip the ball from Chris Bosh with a little under 4 minutes left in the opener. He knew something serious was wrong because he couldn’t straighten the tip. The injury is known as a “mallet finger” and generally takes six to eight weeks to heal. With only quick, courtside treatment, Nowitzki managed to his 1 of 2 shots and all four free throws after the incident. He was 6 of 16 while healthy. Because the problem is on Nowitzki’s non-shooting hand, most of what he does will not be affected. But some of his game will be. He likes to drive to his left, dribbling hard to get to his favorite shooting spots or taking it all the way to the rim. It also could affect him on defense; don’t expect him to swipe down on the ball with the ferocity he did on the play when he was injured. “I think once the game starts, the adrenaline starts flowing, I don’t think it will really slow me down much,” Nowitzki said. “I’m not really worried about it.” Maybe he should be. Because Miami knows where he’s hurting, and everyone knows how much Nowitzki means to Dallas, it only makes sense that guys are going to swipe at his hands more than ever, knowing that even if they don’t snatch the ball, they might rattle the splint.

Shaq calling it quits after legendary run By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — He was a prolific producer of rebounds and record albums. And nicknames, too, as if at 7-foot-1and 350 pounds he was too big for the simple “Shaq” that made him an instantly recognizable, one-name star in all of his endeavors. Shaquille O’Neal had more than 28,000 points and almost 4 million Twitter followers. He appeared in six NBA finals, three times as the MVP, and seven feature films, twice in a starring role. A 15-time All-Star, four-time champion and the 2000 NBA Most Valuable Player, the 39year-old O’Neal announced his retirement on Twitter on Wednesday after spending most of his 19th season on the Boston Celtics bench, in street clothes because of leg injuries. Along with a mid-afternoon tweet saying, “im retiring,” O’Neal included a link to a16-second video of him saying, “We did it; 19 years, baby. Thank you very much. That’s why I’m telling you first: I’m about to retire. Love you. Talk to you soon.” An inveterate prankster who gave himself a new nickname — or several — in each of his six NBA cities, O’Neal did not notify his latest team, leaving it wondering about his plans. He played just 37 games this season, the first of a two-year deal at the veteran’s minimum salary, making just three brief appearances after Feb. 1. “He’s a giant,” commissioner David Stern said Wednesday at the NBA finals in Miami. “He’s physically imposing; he has an imposing smile. In the game, he imposed his will, and he has done it for quite a long time. It’s been a great run, and we’re going to miss

him greatly. We hope we can find ways to keep him involved in the game.” O’Neal, 39, retires fifth allO’Neal time with 28,596 points, 12th with 13,099 rebounds, and a .582 field goal percentage that is second only to Artis Gilmore among players with more than 2,000 baskets. His free throw percentage of .527 — well, now is not the time to dwell on that. “I’m a little bit sad,” said Heat president Pat Riley, who also coached O’Neal when he won a title in Miami and watched Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Patrick Ewing and Alonzo Mourning when they retired. “It’s been an honor to be part of coaching great, great players. And he will go down as one of the greatest of all time.” Appropriately, O’Neal’s retirement became the No. 1 trending topic on the social networking site he embraced by early evening, and his former teammates and opponents took to Twitter to wish him luck. “Shaq not only dominated the game of basketball but also dominated off the court w/ his big personality. Hes 1 of the greatest entertainers,” Magic Johnson said. “Thank you Shaq for leading the Lakers to 3 titles. We loved every minute of it!” O’Neal spent three years at Louisiana State and was the big prize when the Orlando Magic won the 1992 draft lottery and selected him first overall. He took them from the lottery to the playoffs in two years, and then led them to the NBA finals in his third year before they were swept by the Houston Rockets.














Nadal advances with strong win By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS — At last, Rafael Nadal sounded satisfied. Then again, what could he possibly have complained about Wednesday? The five-time French Open champion reached the semifinals and improved his career record at Roland Garros to 43-1 with a clean-as-can-be 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (3) victory over the only man he’s ever lost to there, twotime runner-up Robin Soderling. “Today, I played better. Much better, in my opinion,” Nadal said. “It was nothing secret, nothing magic. ... I found a lot of solutions.” After Nadal’s previous match, he chided himself for not hitting the ball with conviction and fretted that his level of tennis wasn’t good enough to win the tournament a sixth time, which would tie Bjorn Borg’s record for the most by a man in history. Against Soderling, Nadal was at his “King of Clay” best. He scrambled along the baseline to dig out and get back shots that would be winners against most anyone else. He went from defense to offense in a blink, winning 14 of the first 19 points that lasted at least 10 strokes, according to the AP’s tally. He made a hard-to-believe 13 unforced errors total; Soderling made 41. Nadal broke in each of the first two games the 6-foot-4 Soderling served, six times in all. “He played really good. It’s the first match this tournament that he played well all the time,” said Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach. “Well, only in the third set was I a little worried. But it was very good for us today.”


At a glance PARIS — A look at the French Open on Wednesday: Weather: Sunny and windy. High of 72 degrees. Attendance: 28,967. Men’s Quarterfinal Results: No. 1 Rafael Nadal beat No. 5 Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (3); No. 4 Andy Murray beat Juan Ignacio Chela 7-6 (2), 7-5, 6-2. Women’s Quarterfinal Results: No. 6 Li Na beat No. 4 Victoria Azarenka 7-5, 6-2; No. 7 Maria Sharapova beat No. 15 Andrea Petkovic 6-0, 6-3. Stat of the Day: 13 — unforced errors by Nadal against Soderling, who made 41. Quote of the Day: “Even in practice, he plays well against me, so I don’t expect him to play badly on Friday.” — Murray, looking ahead to his semifinal against Nadal. On Court today: Li vs. Sharapova, No. 5 Francesca Schiavone vs. No. 11 Marion Bartoli in the women’s semifinals.


Defending champion Rafael Nadal returns the ball to Robin Soderling during their quarterfinal match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris Wednesday.

On Friday, the top-seeded Nadal will take on No. 4 Andy Murray, who became only the third British man in the last 70 years to reach the French Open semifinals by beating unseeded Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina 7-6 (2), 7-5, 6-2. Murray’s been playing with a torn tendon in his right ankle since twisting it in the third round, and he trailed Chela 4-1, then 5-3, before saving two set points and turning the match around. “Just a really scrappy match,” said Murray, who is 0-3 in Grand Slam finals. “I didn’t start particularly well and then got a little bit better, started moving a bit better, towards the end of the first set.” The other men’s semifinal is No. 2 Novak Djokovic, who is 41-0 in 2011 and has won 43 consecutive matches overall, against No. 3 Roger Federer, owner of a record 16 Grand Slam titles.

It’s the 12th time in the history of the Open era, which began in 1968, that the top four seeded men reached the semifinals at a Grand Slam tournament — and first since the 2006 French Open. In contrast, none of the top four seeded players will participate in the women’s semifinals Thursday, when No. 5 Francesca Schiavone of Italy, the defending champion, faces No. 11 Marion Bartoli of France, and No. 6 Li Na of China meets No. 7 Maria Sharapova of Russia. For Sharapova, who had right shoulder surgery in October 2008, it’s her first major semifinal in more than three years, and she is bidding to complete a career Grand Slam. She won Wimbledon in 2004, the U.S. Open in 2006, and the Australian Open in 2008, but never has been to a final in Paris. “I put a lot of work in to be in this stage of the Grand Slams,” Sharapova said after beating No. 15 Andrea Petkovic of Germany 6-0, 6-3 Wednesday with her fiance, New Jersey Nets guard

of Wilkes-Barre, with his son Jason.



of Italy, the defending champion, will play No. 11 Marion Bartoli of France. They won quarterfinals Tuesday. Sharapova Bartoli is only the fourth Frenchwoman in the Open era, which began in 1968, to get this far at Roland Garros. Both Sharapova and Li have are much more comfortable on hard courts than clay, where hard shots are slowed, and the footing required can be rather tricky. Back in 2007, the only other year Sharapova made it to the French Open semifinals, she famously described sometimes feeling like “a cow on ice” when first getting to the clay-court portion of the season. Before now, Li’s best performance in Paris was getting to the fourth round in 2009. She lost to Sharapova, who’s won five of their seven career meetings. But Li was steady as can be against Azarenka, compiling nearly twice as many winners, 21-11. “After I win the match, I was feeling, ’Wow! I can play semi in Roland Garros,”’ Li said. “I never think about that before. So many people think I’m not so good (on a) clay court, but I think now they should change a little bit.” Sharapova might say the same.

Sasha Vujacic, in the stands. “I’m really happy that it’s here.” Li, who became the first Chinese player to reach any major final at the Australian Open in January, was a 7-5, 6-2 winner over No. 4 Victoria Azarenka. “So many people think I’m not so good (on a) clay court,” Li said, “but I think now they should change a little bit.” No one ever has doubted Nadal’s proficiency on the slow, red surface. Since 2005, the year he won his first French Open title in his tournament debut, Nadal is 198-8 on clay, including an 81-match unbeaten streak that ended in 2007. The only blemish on his Roland Garros record remains a fourthround loss in 2009 to Soderling. But Nadal beat the Swede in last year’s final in straight sets and was just as dominant Wednesday.

PARIS — Everything came so quickly for Maria Sharapova at the start of her tennis career. Wimbledon champion at age 17. Ranked No. 1 at 18. Second major title at 19, third at 20. Surgery on her right shoulder in October 2008 put a halt to all of that. Getting her game back in order required patience. And with a 6-0, 6-3 victory over 15thseeded Andrea Petkovic of Germany on Wednesday, Sharapova reached the French Open semifinals, the first time she’s made it that far at any Grand Slam tournament in more than three years. “There’s no doubt there’s tough moments. I don’t think without tough moments the good ones would feel so good,” the seventh-seeded Sharapova said. “I have certainly put in a lot of work, and I was never hesitant. I always tried to push myself as much as I could.” The owner of titles from the other three major tournaments, a championship at Roland Garros would make Sharapova the 10th woman to complete a career Grand Slam. In the semifinals Thursday, she’ll face No. 6 Li Na of China, who advanced by beating No. 4 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus 7-5, 6-2. Li was the runner-up in January at the Australian Open, where she became the first Chinese tennis player to reach a Grand Slam final. In the other women’s semifinal, No. 5 Francesca Schiavone

A job market reading

Gas prices kept rising for much of May. And food got more expensive. So as retailers announce sales figures for last month, the concern is that consumers spent less on clothing and home items because they had to pay more for the essentials. Adding to that concern: the Conference Board’s consumer confidence survey for May. It showed that people worried not only about higher prices, but also the difficult job and housing markets.

Economists expect just a slight dip in the latest count of people who applied for unemployment benefits for the first time. The number has been fluctuating in recent weeks, including a surprising increase in the week ended May 21. Investors will be paying particularly close attention to last week’s reading, because it comes a day before the Labor Department’s report on how many jobs were created during May.

Home price news has one bright spot By ANDREW M. SEDER

Home prices at the national, state and regional levels declined yet again in April when compared to figures from one year ago. However, there was one positive that came out of a report released Wednesday by CoreLogic, a Santa Ana, Calif.-based providerofinformation,analyticsandbusiness services. Home prices nationally increased on a month-to-month basis by 0.7 percent between March and April, the first such increase since the federal home-buyer tax credit expired in mid-2010. It halted a streak of eight consecutive months of declining sales prices.


“While the economic recovery is still fragile and one data point is not a trend, the month-over-month increase based on April sales activity is a positive sign. This is the first month-over-month increase in the HPI since government support for home buying was removed, and it provides reason for cautious optimism,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. Home prices in the Scranton/WilkesBarre market, including distressed sales, declined by 6.92 percent in April compared to April 2010. A month earlier, home prices declined by 6.74 percent compared to March 2010. Distressed sales include short sales and real estate owned (REO) transactions.Excludingdistressedsales,year-over-

yearpricesdeclinedby2.74percentinApril compared to April 2010 and declined by 5.41 percent in March compared to March 2010. The local numbers weren’t as drastic as those reported at the national level. National home prices, including distressed sales, declined by 7.5 percent in April compared to April 2010 after declining by 6.8 percent in March compared to March 2010. Excluding distressed sales, year-over-year prices declined by 0.5 percent in April compared to April 2010 and by 1.6 percent in March 2011 compared to March 2010. Nationally, only five states and the District of Columbia had positive home price appreciations when including distressed

sales figures: North Dakota (4.2 percent), Vermont (3.4percent), New York (3.2 percent), Washington, D.C. (2.2 percent), Mississippi (1.4 percent), and Alaska (1 percent). Pennsylvania ranked 22nd nationally, falling 4 percent. Excluding distressed sales, the five states with the highest appreciation were: West Virginia (8.4 percent), South Carolina (6.1 percent), Hawaii (5.8 percent), Mississippi (5 percent) and North Dakota (4.5 percent). Including distressed sales, the five states with the greatest depreciation were: Idaho (-15.2 percent), Michigan (-13.2 percent), Arizona (-11.9 percent), Rhode Island (-11.6 percent) and Nevada (-11.4 percent).


Manufacturing pace slows

U.S. manufacturing activity expanded in May at the slowest pace in 20 months, the latest sign that the sharp rise in energy prices is hampering economic growth. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing executives, says its index of manufacturing activity fell to 53.5 percent in May from 60.4 in April. While that marked the 22nd straight month of growth, the decline was the biggest since 1984. Any reading above 50 indicates growth. The index had topped 60 for the first four months of the year.

Penn National buying resort

Penn National Gaming Inc. says it is completing its acquisition of a Las Vegas-area resort. The Wyomissing-based casino operator announced Wednesday that its takeover of the M Resort in Henderson follows its purchase in October 2010 of outstanding debt from Bank of Scotland for $230.5 million, and requisite regulatory approvals. In a statement, company chief Peter M. Carlino said he expects M Resort operating results will rise as the Las Vegas economy improves. Penn National operates 26 facilities in 17 states and the Canadian province of Ontario.

TL reproduction honored

The recognition signifies that The Times Leader’s print quality is up to the SNAP specifications, which are the top of the industry standards.

Early Priuses recalled

Toyota recalled 106,000 first-generation Prius hybrid cars globally on Wednesday for faulty steering caused by a nut that may come loose. The single minor accident suspected of being related to the problem was reported in the U.S., according to Toyota Motor Corp. The latest recall from Toyota affects 48,000 Prius vehicles in Japan. It also affects 58,000 vehicles sold abroad, including 52,000 Prius cars sold from 2001 through 2003 in the U.S., company spokesman Paul Nolasco said. Toyota says loose nuts in the electricpower steering can cause the vehicle, if operated over a long time, to steer with too much force. The problem can be fixed by putting in better nuts and will take about four hours, it said.

Fears sink market

By STAN CHOE and DAVID K. RANDALL AP Business Writers

NEW YORK — Fears that the economy isstallingsenttheDowJonesindustrialaverage down 280 points, erasing more than aquarterofthestockmarket’sgainsforthe year. Treasury bond yields fell to their lowest level since December as traders put a higher value on safer investments. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 279.65 points, or 2.2 percent, to 12,290.14. It was the biggest point drop since June 4 of last year, and the largest percentage dropsinceAugust.TheS&Pindexlost30.65, or 2.3 percent, to1,314.55.

Treasury bond fell to 2.95 percent. Bond yields fall when prices rise. Doubts about the economy’s strength that built in May were compounded by were weaker-than-expected reports on manufacturing and jobs. The Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing index fell to 53.5 in May from 60.4 in April. A readingofmorethan50indicatesthemanufacturing industry is growing, but the in-


dex had been as high as 61.4 in February. Private employers added just 38,000 jobs in May, down from 177,000 in April, according to payroll processor ADP. Analysts had expected180,000 new jobs. “It looks like this recovery has hit its second‘softpatch,’whichforarecoverythatis less than two years old is troubling,” said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist for Capital Economics. The manufacturing and jobs reports, plus a decline in automobile sales in May, led several economists to lower their expectations for the year. JP Morgan was among a handful of investment banks that revised down its estimate for GDP growth in the second quarter to 2 percent.

U.S. auto bailout loss $14B By JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Wednesday that the government will lose about $14 billion in taxpayer funds from the bailout of the U.S. auto industry, a third of the loss officials had initially estimated. In a report from the president’s National Economic Council, officials said that figure is down from the 60 percent the Treasury Department originally estimated the government would lose after its $80 billion bailout of Chrysler and General Motors in 2009. The report’s release coincides with the administration’s efforts to tout the bailout’s role in the revitalization of the U.S. auto industry after last week’s announcement that Chrysler is repaying $5.9 billion in U.S. loans and a $1.7 billion loan from the Canadian government. Those payments cover most of the federal bailout money that saved the company after it nearly ran out of cash in and went through a government-led bankruptcy. For President Barack Obama, the auto industry comeback is one of the few bright spots in an otherwise sluggish economic recovery. What’s more, the auto industry has a big footprint in key presidential battleground states like Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Missouri. General Motors Co., which also went through bankruptcy, received a $49.5 billion U.S. bailout. The federal government has lowered its equity stake in the company from 61 percent to 26.5 percent of GM after selling part of the stake in November. Ford did not seek federal government assistance. “In the last year, the Detroit Three have all gained market share, they have all added jobs and they have all shown the ability to make money,” Ron Bloom, Obama’s top adviser on manufacturing, said in reference to the three U.S. car makers. Bloom declined to say when the government would sell its remaining stake in GM. The company’s stock price fluctuated between $29 and $39 over the last two months. It was selling at $30.81 per share on Wednesday. The administration’s decision to promote the industry and the role of the bailouts came on the same day the industry reported a falloff in May sales after an aggressive performance earlier this year.

Apple to announce iCloud service Monday; stay tuned for details WHEN IT COMES to new releases, Apple is notoriously cagey. It cleverly drops hints, allows dribs and drabs of info to seep out, whatever it takes to build just the right amount of suspense for any new product launch. When it comes to its new iCloud service, the same can be said. Will this be a major release? What does it entail? What does it mean for existing and new Apple customers? Well, we can immediately guess a few of the details here. iCloud was a primary URL of the Xcerion corporation, developers of a product called iCloud, a cloud-based operating system. No, Apple has not purchased Xcerion, but it has appar-

NICK DELORENZO TECH TALK ently purchased the iCloud domain, forcing Xcerion to redirect to the far less catchy “” I wonder how much they paid for the domain? Apple has also been hinting that it intends to revitalize its MobileMe service, which allows you to transfer files and data to Apple mobile devices via the Internet. In addition, the company has also formed partnerships with EMI, Universal, Sony Music and Warner – it already offers songs from these labels in iTunes, but it’s possible that the agreements pertain to rights for hosting or storing music online.

With such sketchy information available, there’s no word as to how much this will all cost – similar services either charge a nominal fee or are freely available. In addition to this announcement, Apple is expected to offer more information on upcoming releases for the iPhone and iPad, as well as updates about the latest version of its desktop operating system, codenamed “Lion.” These announcements will take place at the World Wide Developers’

Conference in San Francisco, and Apple founder Steve Jobs will be the keynote speaker at the event. This development all seems to follow a pattern of following long-range trends – first build mobile, web-enabled devices that are heavily dependent on the Internet to function. Then develop a cloud-based infrastructure on which users can host and store content. I expect Apple has a few interesting tricks up its sleeve in the coming year or two. Use your smartphone’s scan reader on the QR code found in this column to be directed to the Apple press release on iCloud.

MasterCard’s future isn’t in plastic – it’s in tech. Eighty-five percent of the world’s transactions are still in cash. CEO Ajay Banga is pushing his company to use innovative technology to get some of that business. He talked with The Associated Press about what MasterCard is doing: MasterCard has had a staid reputation. Is it difficult to create a culture of innovation? It’s always difficult to nurture innovation, even in a non-staid company. Even in a relatively prosperous company with a degree of innovation built into its DNA, it’s not easy to sustain. We have one group within the company focusing is what I call growth-sustaining innovation, or “stealing shamelessly.” ... If somebody did something in Singapore and it worked well, there’s no reason why it can’t work in at least 20 other countries. Can you offer an example? One of our best clients wanted

occurred a year and a half ago, but up until six months ago, it hadn’t moved outside of Australia. So just getting that rolled out, now into 20 markets, is the stealing shamelessly.



Can you describe some of the technology you’re using? We’re trying to do something very interesting in India, based on fingerprints. ... The government is recording the fingerprints of 600 million people in rural India. Bank accounts will be opened with the state banks for those people. What they wanted us to do was to prove that we can authenticate and clear transactions based on a fingerprint, just as we authenticate right now based on either the magnetic strip or a chip and PIN. But you can’t install those machines in rural India. That will cost too much. So what they’re thinking of doing is installing a fingerprint reader on cellphones. So you touch a finger, it goes over the cellphone system, reaches us, gets authenticated and an approval is sent back.

to find a way to get more youth to use debit cards. We redesigned the debit card product with its package of features, connecting it to music, and created a whole new marketing approach with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. The results were dramatic. ... This

A robust invasion of much cooler and drier air will last all day today and into tonight. In the process, a gusty wind will peak at 30 mph, and cumulus clouds will blossom and decorate a blue sky this afternoon. High temperatures will be 20 degrees cooler than recent days, and the lower humidity will allow the wash to dry in just minutes. Temperatures tonight will drop into the 40s, but frost is not expected to form. Friday will be one of the top 10 best days of 2011 under a deep blue sky.

Typo sleuth Jeff Deck holds his typo-repair kit while Benjamin Herson notes a typo they found on 19th Street in Philadelphia. By ART CAREY

The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELPHIA — When Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson, two word nerds and earnest agents of TEAL, the Typo Eradication Advancement League, visited Philadelphia recently, within 90 minutes Center City was the better for it, orthographically speaking.• On 19th Street, at the Four Seasons Cleaners, they noticed the word cleaner’s uncalled-for apostrophe on the door of the establishment. • With permission from owner Mee Kim, Deck used his fingernail to peel off the superfluous apostrophe, a feat that would have made him beam triumphantly if he were inclined to beam. • A few doors down, a sign in the window of All About Hair advertised “5 hairstylist.” Deck, carrying his trusty Typo Correction Kit (a makeup bag filled with correction fluid, permanent markers, chalk, and Sharpies in various colors), offered to pluralize the word with an “s,” but hairstylist Rita Riccelli declined. “Somebody told us it was spelled wrong, but I’d rather you come back when the boss is here,” Riccelli said. She promised to bring it to his attention. On 18th Street, at the Wrap Shack kitchen and bar, among the specials on a chalkboard out front Deck and Herson spotted “chicken caeser.” “Would you mind if I fixed it?” Deck politely asked manager Juana Quiroz, who consented and even offered chalk. Deck changed the last “e” to an “a.” “Most people are hesitant to do something about typos,” he declared, looking satisfied, “but the world is more malleable than it might seem.” Deck and Herson were in town not only searching for typos but also promoting “The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time.” (Crown Publishers, $23.99). It chronicles a 10-week road trip around America in the spring of

dy-love saga and state-of-the-nation survey, it’s also an adventure thriller for grammar fiends, copy editors and other enforcers of linguistic propriety. “I wanted to make some positive difference in the world,” says Deck, explaining his motivation for the trip. “How could I do that? What is my special skill? And the answer I came up with is, I could spot typos wherever I roamed. I’ve noticed them all my literate life.” Deck, 30, of Portsmouth, N.H., recruited Herson, also 30, of Beaverton, Ore. They had met years earlier at Dartmouth College and roomed toJeff Deck and Benjamin Herson, both 30 and earnest agents of TEAL — gether when they worked in Washingthe Typo Eradication Advancement League — enter a dry-cleaning estabton, D.C. lishment in Philadelphia to inquire about an errant apostrophe.

Long live stylish maxi dresses By BONNIE BING McClatchy Newspapers

It’s true — fashion is cyclical. Around and around styles go. The names might change — “hip huggers” became “low rise,” “warm-ups” turned into “activewear,” and “maxi dresses” became “patio dresses” then went back to “maxi dresses.” No matter what you call them, maxi dresses are a cool look in warmer weather. “I love them because you can wear them anywhere,” said Wynn Hukle, a fashionconscious teen who wasn’t born when the first maxi dress craze hit in the ’70s. But she’s right. These long dresses that were once worn poolside or on the patio are showing up everywhere today, from restaurants to casual gatherings to nightclubs. Retailers say maxi dresses

“THERE’S A HINT OF SOPHISTICATION IN MAXI dresses this season that I’m really drawn to, even the more casual ones.” Brooke Greene Hebert, Owner of Pink Saloon clothing store

are selling well as the weather warms and people think about summer. “There’s a hint of sophistication in maxi dresses this season that I’m really drawn to, even the more casual ones,” said Brooke Greene Hebert, owner of Pink Saloon clothing store. Halter styles, empire waists, straight columns and elongated A-lines are just a few of the style options. A huge variety of comfortable fabrics, an even larger choice

of prints and bright solids and details such as draping, asymmetrical necklines and hems make finding just the right maxi dress a fun search. When Erin Duke of Aspen Boutique in Wichita, Kan., received an invitation that specified “patio chic” for preferred attire, she knew immediately what she would wear. “I thought, ‘Ah, break out the maxi dress.’ They’re lengthening and flattering and, of MCT PHOTO course, women love that,” she A model dons a maxi dress of coral stretch cotton by Press. said.

As Facebook becomes the window to the Web for its more than 500 million users worldwide, the security of the social network has never been a hotter topic. One recent example is Pam Aughe of Clarkston, Mich., who had her account hacked into by a scammer who tried to bilk her friends out of money. While it can be hard to make a Facebook account hack-proof, there is certainly a lot you can do to prevent a story like Aughe’s. Here are 10 Facebook settings for you to check now. 1. Who can see what? Your first stop should be your privacy settings, which you can get to under “Account” at the top right of any page. Here, make sure you’re using a set of custom settings. Click “Customize settings” under the grid on that page to see who can see which parts of your Good passwords Facebook include capital profile. letters, puncUnless you use your tuation, numFacebook acbers and words count as a that can’t be public page, every option found in the should at dictionary. least be set to “Friends Only.” From there, you can make each setting more specific, keeping your photos hidden for certain people, for example. 2. Place your friends in lists To make the previous tip more powerful, place your Facebook friends in lists. If you begin to define lists such as Co-workers, Best Friends, Employees, Students, etc., you can set each of your settings to be visible or not visible to a whole list of people. To do this go to “Edit Friends” under the Account menu. Type in a friend’s name and add it to a list. Then you can make sure that only your best friends, for example, can see the photos you post. Or you can make sure that your students or employees don’t see your status updates. You also can add a friend to a list as you accept their friend request. 3. How secure is your password? This is the front line to your Facebook security and should be taken seriously. Good passwords include capital letters, punctuation, numbers and words that can’t be found in the dictionary. Resist using anything that someone who knows you well enough could guess (kids, pets, phone numbers, etc.). If you think for any reason that your account’s security has been breached, change your password immediately. Doing so will end every active session of Facebook for your account, locking out anyone else but you. 4. Who can find you? Facebook also allows you to set what people see if they’re not your friend. Under privacy settings, click “View Settings” under the “Connecting on Facebook” setting at the top of the page. Here, you can set what people see when they search for you on Facebook. Pay special note to the bottom option, which allows you to set who can see what you have “liked” on Facebook. Many don’t realize that by default this option is set to show everyone on the Web what you like. Don’t want that future employer to know that you “like” naps or skipping class? This is a good thing to check. 5. What does my profile look like to Grandpa? See FACEBOOK, Page 2C










Continued from Page 1C

Continued from Page 1C

Even the most conscientious Facebook user can miss a check box or two, putting his or her entire weekend escapade on Facebook for Grandpa to see. But the good news is that you can preview what your profile looks like to any of your friends, many of whom can see different things depending on how advanced you have set your privacy settings. In your privacy settings, click “Customize Settings” then “Preview My Profile.” Here, you’ll be able to type in any friend’s name and see exactly what they see. Very handy. 6. Browse Facebook securely One of Facebook’s most vulnerable features is that much of your browsing is done without a secure connection to the website. Hackers have exploited this hole by accessing your personal information if you use Facebook on a public or unsecured WiFi network. In your account settings, choose Account Security. There’s a check box there to enable secure browsing whenever possible. Check that. You’ll soon see that Facebook will be using https:// instead of http://. That’s how you know you’re more secure. 7. Who is logging in as you? One of Facebook’s greatest security features is the ability to individually approve each computer or mobile device that logs into your account. You can name each computer you use Facebook with (work, home, laptop, iPhone, etc.). To turn this on, go to your account settings, click on “Account Security” and choose that you want an e-mail or text message when someone tries to log in from a computer that isn’t one you’ve approved. Here, you can also see all the open sessions of Facebook tied to your account. Someone logging in from five states away? Click “end activity” and they’ll be stopped in their tracks. 8. Which apps know you? As we have used Facebook

New England. Ontheirfirsttour,theyskipped Philadelphia but did stop in Lansdowne, where they corrected signs in a supermarket offering “beefstake”tomatoesand“pomegranite” juice. They fixed “bread puding” in Rockville, Md., “souveneir mugs” in Las Vegas, and “dillettante chocolate” in Seattle. NearFlagstaff,Ariz.,theyspotted a billboard urging “BRING YOUR CAMERA’S.” That was enough to impel them to exit the highway and turn around. After vaulting a barbed-wire fence, they reached the offending billboard, where Deck chalked out the apostrophe. On the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, as the TEALsters were whiting out the extraneous apostrophe in “palm reading’s” (“probably the most common type of mistake,” Herson says), two thugs approached and warned, “Walk away now or you won’t be able to walk again.” “That’s the only time we were physically threatened,” Deck says. “Maybe they were part of some apostrophe-preserving gang.” On the south rim of the Grand Canyon, they fixed two errors on a sign about artwork on a faux American Indian watchtower. The Park Service, which regarded the sign as historic, was not amused.TheTEALsterswerelat-

On the same app privacy page, check out the subhead that says “Info accessible through your friends.” You may not know it, but anything your friends can see on Facebook also can be seen by any app that your friends add on Facebook — including apps that you have no idea were ever given access.

over the years, each of us has amassed lists of applications that have access to our Facebook information. To see which apps currently have access to your Facebook information, go to your privacy settings and click edit under “Apps and Websites” at the bottom left of the page. On the next page, click edit settings next to “Apps you use.” Here, you’ll see a list of all the apps that have your information on file. Many of them are used for convenience, such as integration with the popular Instagram photo-sharing app or commenting services on news websites. But there are certainly some you could lose.

Many of these spammy links are clickjacking schemes, which spread by posting links on a bunch of your friends’ walls. The only foolproof way to prevent these links from gumming up your own wall is to set it so no one can post directly on your wall. Friends can still comment on your status messages, links and photos, but won’t have the ability to leave you a public note. To change this setting, head to the customize settings area under privacy. Then uncheck the “Enable” box where it allows friends to post on your wall.

er summoned to court, charged with defacing federal property andorderedtopay$3,000inrestitution. They were also banned from national parks for a year. The experience ended the practice of “stealth corrections” and “covert alterations” and led to the formulation of the “Third Rule of Typo Hunting” (Don’t Be a Jerk) and such corollaries as Always Ask Permission and Be Courteous and Deferential. “It’s a universal truth that everyone makes mistakes,” Deck says, “and there are mistakes everywhere you go in the United States.” No region was more error-prone than others, but neighborhoods with more small businesses were “more likely to need typo-eradication assistance.” Tolerant of slang, lenient toward non-native users of English, determined to amend the error rather than shame the perpetrator, they tried to steer a middle course between the “grammar hawks” and “grammar hippies.” Telling patterns in spelling mistakes, particularly “double-letter issues” (“dinning” instead of “dining,” “shiping” instead of “shipping”), have convinced them of the virtue of phonicsbased reading instruction. The guerrilla grammarians of TEAL hope to inspire others to follow their lead. In the meantime: “Take a second look at your text,” Herson exhorts. Proofreading something you’re about to share with the world is a matter not only of clarity of communication but also common courtesy.

Father’s homework help gets a passing grade from Abby’s readers Dear Abby: I’m writing regarding the letter from “Not Fooled in Michigan” (April 22), who expressed concern about her fiance’s daughter’s reliance on him to proofread her college papers. As a teacher, I know when I assign a paper that the spelling and grammar will likely be checked by a computer or a person other than a student. Whether it’s the campus proofreading service or a parent is immaterial. Would “Fooled” have the same “ethical” objections if “Kimberly” were using the campus office to provide the same service? What matters is the content of her essays, which the girl is apparently

DEAR ABBY ADVICE writing by herself — and incidentally, completing in enough time to send them to a proofreader and await a response. That suggests a more developed sense of responsibility than is common among my students. I see no ethical dilemma here, and I find it disingenuous of “Not Fooled” to suggest otherwise. As for Kimberly’s “unhealthy” reliance on her dad, the aforementioned campus services are, in my experience, generally staffed with underpaid undergraduates or overworked teaching assistants. If her dad has the knowledge


and time to assist her, I see nothing wrong with her asking for his help. That’s not over-reliance on a parent. It’s choosing the best of one’s available options. — Texas Teacher Who Knows Dear Teacher: Thank you for writing. I received a huge number of responses to that letter — from teachers, parents and students alike. Read on: Dear Abby: The fiancee needs to determine which class the papers are for before calling foul. If it’s a composition class in which the student is graded on spelling and grammar, then no, Dad shouldn’t fix them, but he can advise. It’s called being a parent, and “Not Fooled” better be-


come accustomed to the idea of sharing his attention. If it’s something like a history class, editing assistance shouldn’t be a problem. All good writers have editors to help with mechanics because after looking at a piece for too long, you no longer see the errors. — Cyndi in Ohio Dear Abby: I’m a 43-year-old college student. I always send my siblings my essays before I turn them in, not just to proofread, but for their opinions of my writing. I would bet this is why the daughter sends her work to her father. My daughter is still in high school, but I hope she continues to seek my opinion on her essays in the

future. It has prompted many valuable and intriguing discussions, some of which have helped us to understand each other better as she transitions to adulthood. There’s nothing “unhealthy” about an 18-to-22-yearold college student asking her dad to help with a paper. What’s unhealthy is a future stepmom taking issue with it. It appears she has some underlying jealousy. — Mom Graduating With Her Kid

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are no mistakes. You always do what you think the situation calls for, knowing what you know and using whatever resources are available to you at the time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a tendency to discount your abilities and build up the abilities of another person. Put a stop to that today. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Brave people deal with problems. You should count yourself among the bravest because you rush after the thing that bothers you and chase it down instead of running away from it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a sense of self-worth that comes from early experiences. There are fears and doubts that stem from the same period of time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are no magic words that will persuade another person to choose you over the competition. But if you can meet this person’s needs better than any other, you will get the opportunity to do so. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are so many reasons to be generous. It feels good, for starters. And on a more pragmatic note, if you ever part ways, you can do so knowing that you were always very good to the other person. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll soon be in a position to sell your idea. The most important part of this process comes long before the pitch. Gather information about who needs what you’re presenting and why they need it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you’re very honest with yourself,


ON THE WEB For more Sudoku go to


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

you realize that you already know what you’d like to see from today’s scene. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your personality shimmers. Be sure to spend time around someone you want to know better. The longer you do the more he or she will get to know you and like you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your internal reaction to what others say about you or your work is strong, even if the message you hear from them is rather mild. Imagine yourself turning an invisible knob to quiet the volume of your inner critic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Several people will vie for your business, energy or time. Go with the one who invests the most in the interaction. Note that whatever you get now, you will get more of the same from this person later. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). However potent your creative impulses may be, you cannot always drop everything to follow them. If it is at all possible to do that today, you won’t be sorry. The result could be life changing. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 2). You’ve been known to make your own luck, and you’ll repeat the trick this month as you meet new friends, find out what people need and provide solutions where you can. You’ll be celebrated publicly now and in October. A relationship solidifies in July. Family developments affect you in December. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 11, 24 and 17.
