Seeking ways for ethnic groups to connect



RIGHT TWP. – An international festival at a local church this past weekend was a good step toward promoting cultural diversity in Mountain Top, but more efforts are needed, some residents say. • The Church of St. Jude hosted an International Fest featuring representative cuisine from Germany, Italy, Poland, Ireland and Latin America as well as music and dance from some of those countries.

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the top ancestries of Mountain Top residents are German, Polish, Irish, Italian and English, respectively. And Latinos are among the fastestgrowing populations in the area.

“I think we hit it pretty close, which is good,” said the Rev. Jerry Shantillo, assistant pastor at St. Jude. Shantillo said parish leaders

Saying goodbye to a holy place Memories abound at the Holy Name/St. Mary’s’ final service. By SARA POKORNY

SWOYERSVILLE -- Taking on the conversational tone of someone speaking directly to a dear friend, the Rev. Joseph Pisaneschi stood in front of the Holy Name/St. Mary’s Parish in Swoyersville and delivered a homily for the final Mass that elicited laugh-


ter and touched upon what a great influence the parish had on his life. “While in seminary I remembered the kind of people the church that come from the church of Swoyersville, and I wanted to be a pastor in a church just like it. It made such an impression on me that every time I heard the word ‘church’ I thought of you people. And it wasn’t the building, although I love it; it’s you, the living, breathing stones that make it up.”

BELLEFONTE — The case against Jerry Sandusky, whose trial begins Tuesday with jury selection, could boil down to a simple question: Will the young men who claim the former Penn State assistant football coach sexually abused them be viewed as credible witnesses?

‘Snow White’ is fairest movie of all By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES — “Snow White & the Huntsman” turned out to be a fairer box-office beauty than Hollywood anticipated. According to studio estimates Sunday, Universal Pictures’ action yarn inspired by the fairy-

tale princess debuted strongly at No. 1 with $56.3 million domestically. That’s about $20 million higher than industry expectations. Without the built-in business that generally goes with a sequel, “Snow White” was a question mark as a draw for young males

who typically make up most of the action crowd. The movie wound up drawing a fairly even audience, with female fans accounting for 53 percent of viewers. “We weren’t even thinking we could do beyond $40 million, especially for a title where you didn’t know if the males are going to show up. And they did,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal.

Overseas, “Snow White” added $39.3 million in 45 markets, putting the worldwide total at $95.6 million for the movie that stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. “Snow White” bumped Sony’s “Men in Black 3” from the top spot and into second-place with $29.3 million. The Will SmithTommy Lee Jones sequel raised its domestic total to $112.3 million after two weekends and add-

A BURNING PASSION Former Kingston firefighter and son restore old engines By JOHN P. ANISTRANSKI Times Leader Intern


INGSTON -- One passion has motivated 53year-old Tom Bretz for as long as he can recall: Fighting fires. • But his days as a Kingston firefighter ended prematurely in 1998, when a severe stroke forced him to retire. • Instead of letting it squelch his passion, Bretz treated retirement as an opportunity to share his love of the fire service with the person dearest to him —his son Tommy. • Under the title T. Bretz and Son, Tom and Tommy have publicly displayed their shared affection for fire truck restoration, recently exhibiting two antique engines in the Memorial Day Parade in Kingston.

PLAINS TWP. -- The Wyoming Valley Motorcycle Club held its 16th Annual SPCA Benefit Ride on Sunday, with approximately 600 participants joining

in the annual run from the SPCA building in Plains, throughout the Valley and concluding at Bentley’s, Route 309 Ashley. Dave “Hoop” Hopper, president of the organization, said he embraced the annual opportunity to assist the community. “We are not simply a gathering of those with a love for motorcycles,” said Hooper, “but a benefit to

members of the community: both animals and people.” Peggy Nork, development director of the SPCA of Luzerne County, said she was exceedingly grateful for the club’s efforts on behalf of the association, especially during these difficult economic times. “It is an unlikely alliance, but it works,” said Nork, crediting the motorcycle

club with organizing and executing the event effectively. Participants were also very excited about the run and the opportunity to help. The fee for the ride was $15 per rider, $10 per participant, which included food and entertainment. The profits from T-shirt sales at the event were also directed to the SPCA.

“It was well worth it,” said a smiling April Ignatz, Dallas, mingling with other participants while waiting for the run to begin.

Zimmerman in custody

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, surrendered to police Sunday and was booked into jail after having his bail revoked two days earlier. Zimmerman’s legal team said in a tweet that he was in police custody. Zimmerman’s bail was revoked because the judge said he and his wife lied to the court about their finances so he could obtain a lower bond. On Sunday afternoon, about 40 minutes before the 2:30 p.m. deadline to surrender, Zimmerman was listed as an inmate on the jail website. He was listed as being held without bail and having $500 in his jail account.

Ohio crash kills 3 teens

A car carrying five teenagers went airborne as it sped over railroad tracks in northeast Ohio early Sunday and crashed, killing three of the teens, including the 18-year-old driver who was hours away from his high school graduation, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said. Two others were hospitalized. All five teens were from Brunswick. The driver was a senior football player whose Brunswick High School graduation ceremony was scheduled Sunday afternoon. The 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier was traveling at a high speed just after midnight when the driver lost control in Columbia Township, troopers at the Elyria post said. The car went airborne and then off the right side of the roadway, then swerved across the left side of the road, hit a ditch and tree, then flipped over onto the roadway, according to the troopers’ report.

AMMAN, Jordan - Syrian President Bashar Assad offered no new concessions Sunday from his embattled administration, instead assailing a "foreign conspiracy" against Syria and rejecting any government role in recent “monstrous massacres” across the nation. “The truth is that even monsters do not do what we saw, especially in the Houla massacre,” Assad said, referring to the house-to-house executions last

But authorities in Syria blamed the massacre on foreign-backed "terrorists" seeking to frame Syrian security services and undermine a U.N. peace plan. “The crisis is not internal,” Assad said, repeating his government’s longterm assertion that foreign powers are stoking the uprising aimed at ending his rule. “Rather, it is a foreign war with internal tools, and everybody is responsible for defending the homeland.” The nationally televised speech before the newly elected Parliament

seemed aimed mostly at a domestic audience. The president appeared to be preparing Syrians for more hardship after months of violence and economic sanctions have battered and traumatized the population. “We are facing a real war from outside,” Assad said. The Syrian leader offered no new measures to help resuscitate the stalled United Nations-brokered peace plan, widely violated by both sides in the almost 15-month-old conflict. U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan has called on Assad to take “bold and visible steps” to help implement the faltering peace plan, which, among other things, calls for withdrawal of government troops from populated areas. On Saturday, Annan warned of “all-out civil war.”

CAM RANH BAY, Vietnam — U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta used a visit Sunday to Vietnam to make clear Washington’s intent to aid allies in the Asia-Pacific region develop and enforce maritime rights in the South China Sea, which Beijing largely claims. On a historic stop in Cam Ranh Bay, the strategic deep water port that was a U.S. base during the Vietnam War, Panetta could gaze out from the flight deck of the USNS Richard E. Byrd toward the sea and reflect on the significance of the harbor, which represents both a painful past for the American military and a challenging but hopeful future. “The new defense strategy that we have put in place Panetta for the United States repre“The new de- sents a number of key elements fense strategy that will be that we have tested in the reput in place … Asia-Pacific gion,” Panetta represents a told reporters under number of key gathered a blazing sun elements that on the deck of will be tested the cargo vessel. in the AsiaHe said the U.S. would Pacific re“work with our gion.” partners like Leon Panetta Vietnam to be U.S. secretary of able to use hardefense bors like this as we move our ships from our ports on the West Coast toward our stations here in the Pacific.” Panetta never mentioned China as he spoke to crew members on the Byrd and later to reporters. But with the South China Sea as a backdrop, he left no doubt that the U.S. will maintain a strong presence in the region and wants to help allies protect themselves and their maritime rights. His visit, however, is likely to irritate Chinese leaders who are unhappy with any U.S. buildup in the region and view it as a possible threat. Panetta, in remarks Saturday to a defense conference in Singapore, rejected such claims about the shift in U.S. military focus. But U.S. officials are wary of China’s increased military buildup and expanding trade relations with other countries in the region. “Access for United States naval ships into this facility is a key component of this relationship (with Vietnam) and we see a tremendous potential here for the future,” he said. This is Panetta’s first visit to Vietnam, and his stop at the harbor made him the most senior U.S. official to go to Cam Ranh Bay since the Vietnam War ended. Right now U.S. warships do not go into the harbor, but other Navy ships, such as the Byrd, do. The Byrd is a cargo ship operated by the Navy’s Military Sealift Command; it has a largely civilian crew. It is used to move military supplies to U.S. forces around the world. Navy warships go to other Vietnam ports, such as Danang.

Wisconsin governor’s recall test for voters By DAVID LIGHTMAN McClatchy Newspapers

WAUKESHA, Wis. - The brawl over whether to recall Gov. Scott Walker is a taut preview of what’s coming to campaigns across America this year. Wisconsin voters will decide Tuesday whether to remove the Republican from office and replace him

with Democrat Thomas Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee. Under fire for cutting budgets at the expense of public employees, Walker would be only the third governor in U.S. history yanked from office in a recall election. Walker has an edge, but the race is close. The campaign will mean more than who governs

Wisconsin. It’s a test case of the larger clashes in American politics driving elections for the presidency and control of Congress, highlighting divisions over the costs of government. Backed by money pouring in from out of state, the race is raising questions that will echo across the country.

Can a tough-minded conservative Republican force cutbacks in government at the risk of angering public employees unions and still win a swing state such as Wisconsin? Will voters think he’s doing the best he MCT FILE PHOTO can in a tough time? Or will they rise in a grassroots In Madison, Wis., about three dozen peobacklash against a well-fi- ple gather every day at noon for an hour nanced Republican effort? to sing protest songs in the Capitol.

TRUCKS Continued from Page 3A

The Bretzes began their first fire truck refurbishment when Tommy was 14. The truck was a 1940s Ward LaFrance that Tom first spotted in a parking lot in Dallas. He personally approached its owner and eventually he purchased the truck for $5,000. T. Bretz and Son began its first restoration soon after. Tommy Bretz, now 23, has since worked on three restorations with his father. Still, he describes that first Ward LaFrance as the “biggest work of them all.” To begin, the truck had to be sanded down and repainted. Then the Bretzes had to hunt for antique equipment from the 1940s to properly outfit the truck’s interior. Finally, they entirely rewired the engine so that it could function at full capacity. This restoration was not unmarred by a few arguments and spats. The elder Bretz acknowledged he and his son “got so close over it.” Tommy said he would “do it all over again,” and he has: He and his father also have refurbished a 1960s Ward LaFrance and are in the finishing stages of refurbishing a Hahn engine. That Hahn engine symbolizes the centrality of the Bretzes’ shared hobby to their father-son bond. Tommy had long expressed to his father a dream to restore a Hahn truck — a slight departure from the Ward LaFrance models on which they had worked in the past. And so Tom, seeing in his son a

shared passion for fire engines, devoted his energies to finding a Hahn. It became an all-consuming desire: “I want to leave this earth knowing you got the Hahn you wanted,” he told his son. Bretz finally fulfilled his son’s wish when he discovered a Hahn for sale at the Atlas Fire Co. in Mount Carmel. T. Bretz and Son are in the process of refurbishing this truck. Bretz recommended a few organizations to those interested in his family’s hobby: • The Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus in America has been active since 1958 and has chapters worldwide.

• The Schuylkill Historical Fire Society, a local organization open to the public, hosts a museum devoted to the fire service in a company building restored in good part thanks to the Bretzes’ personal efforts. Even with his constant involvement in fire truck refurbishment, Bretz refuses to leave his beloved fire service fully behind. He holds a lifetime membership in the Kingston Fire Department and stores his trucks at the South Sprague Avenue station. He also sits as a member of the Six County Firemen’s Association and serves as the vice president of the Luzerne County Fire Rescue Training Association.

Philly parishioners await visit from pope in 2015 City of Brotherly Love is announced as site of the next World Meeting of Families. By RON TODT Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Local officials and parishioners hailed the announcement by Pope Benedict XVI that he plans to visit Philadelphia in 2015 when it is the site of the next World Meeting of Families, some adding that it might heal divisions caused by the clergy abuse scandals of recent years. Benedict announced the venue during a Sunday Mass in Milan celebrating the seventh such gathering of families from around the world. The pope sent his greetings to Archbishop Charles Chaput and the Catholics “of that great city” and said he was looking forward to meeting them in 2015. Officials said it was too early to confirm the papal calendar. Traditionally papal trips abroad are usually confirmed first by the local diocese hosting the trip once the dates are set, a few months before the journey. And the Vatican releases details of such a pilgrimage only a few weeks before departure. Since becoming pope, Benedict attended a world families meeting in Valencia, Spain, but skipped one in Mexico. The announcement of the papal visit comes as jurors in Philadelphia are deliberating in the landmark trial of a former Roman Catholic Church official charged with conspiring to hide priestabuse complaints and endangering children by keeping predators in ministry. Chaput hailed the visit in a statement from Milan, where diocesan officials said he received the icon of the Holy Family, which is the symbol of The World Meeting of Families. “I am so grateful to the Holy Father that he has chosen Philadelphia and excited that we will host the 2015 World Meeting of Families,” Chaput said. “It’s fitting that this gathering, which cele-

brates the cornerstone of society, will take place in America’s cradle of freedom. The Holy Father’s choice is a gift to the local Church in Philadelphia and to the whole nation.” Chaput, who heads the fivecounty archdiocese that has about 1.5 million Catholics, also said the visit would highlight the importance of the family, which he said “is founded on a deep and loving union between one man and one woman for mutual support and the nurturing of children” and is “the basic evangelizing unit of the Church.” “Every effort to promote marriage and the family serves not only the Church, but also the common good,” he said. In the landmark trial that went to the jury on Friday, Monsignor William Lynn, the former secretary for clergy, is the first U.S. church official charged for his handling of child sex-abuse complaints. He said he tried to get the Philadelphia archdiocese to address the problem, only to be rebuffed by his archbishop, the late Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua. Prosecutors maintain that Lynn could have quit or called police. Some parishioners leaving the Cathedral of Saints Peter & Paul in central Philadelphia after Sunday Mass said they hoped the papal visit could help heal divisions caused by the church sex abuse scandals of recent years. “I think the divisiveness because of the sex scandal has really impacted the attendance at Mass and just the unity of Catholics in the city,” said Mary Corcoran, who graduated from a Catholic school just up the street. “I think it just might bring some healing to us, having his presence here in the city.” Eileen Jameson, 53, carrying her not-quite-2-year-old granddaughter Lyla down the cathedral steps after her very first Mass, said she thought anticipation of the visit could reinvigorate local Catholics after the scan-

dals. “I would think we could use a boost,” she said. “Even just the thought of it will, I think, make people a little happier about things.” In 1979, Pope John Paul II drew gigantic crowds of people along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway outside the cathedral when he came to celebrate Mass. Corcoran said she remembers the day vividly. “It was just a beautiful experience,” she said. “It was a very moving event.” Theresa Pollard, 46, of Mullica Hill, N.J., said she remembers “crowds, cheers and lots of excitement” from then, and she’s looking forward to Pope Benedict XVI’s visit. “I will be waiting in line,” she said. “I was here to see Pope John Paul as a child, so I’m eager for his arrival — so my whole family will be here.”


Pope Benedict XVI waves as he arrives Sunday to celebrate a Mass in Bresso, near Milan, Italy. The pope is in Milan for the seventh World Encounter of Families.

Bank robber is cut out from air duct The Associated Press

OAK LAWN, Ill. — A wig-wearing man broke into a suburban Chicago bank vault and nearly made off with $100,000 but got stuck in an air duct and had to be cut out hours later, authorities said Sunday. Charles Estell, 38, was found early Sunday hiding in an air duct in an office next to the bank, according to Oak Lawn police spokesman Michael Kaufmann. The Chicago man had allegedly robbed the suburban bank Saturday afternoon, and pointed a gun at bank employees who confronted him in the vault, according to the FBI. “I don’t want to kill or hurt you,” Estell said, according to the criminal complaint. “I just want the money.” He allegedly stuffed $100,000 in a backpack and fled. Employees told authorities it appeared he escaped through the ceiling.

PSU freshmen still upbeat


Incoming class brings a renewed spirit to troubled Penn State University. By GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE— High school senior Wilton Smith wasn’t scared off from attending Penn State because of the child sex abuse crisis that enveloped the university. Instead, he’s more convinced than ever that he can make a difference in college. Penn State already had the characteristics Smith sought for college: An honors program, a pre-med program, and a large enrollment with high-profile sports teams. Plus, Smith’s older sister, Amanda, just graduated in May. “If anything, it encouraged me more to come to Penn State because I wanted to be part of the class that restored the honor at the university,” said Smith, a student at Cedar Cliff High School in Camp Hill, during a break on a recent visit to campus with his father for an honors program orientation. Despite fears of a hit to Penn State’s reputation — and enrollment — President Rodney Erickson has said the school is on pace to have its largest incoming freshman class in six years. The incoming Class of 2016 would be the first group of freshmen to enroll since former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was accused in November of molesting boys and using his charity to recruit victims. The fallout roiled the state and its flagship university. Two top administrators were charged with a coverup. Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno was ousted by the trustees, a move that sparked outrage among the school’s numerous alumni and a

raucous protest of thousands of college students on downtown streets. Mainly, though, the roughly 40,000 who attend the main campus in State College tried to lie low through the scurrilous rumors and media firestorm. Dozens took part in charity efforts to raise money and awareness for child abuse research and treatment. Thousands showed up a candlelight vigil for victims of child abuse in November; thousands again showed up for a vigil after Paterno died in January. They lined the streets in mourning days later for his funeral procession. High school students like Smith and their families took note. The scandal was an “isolated incident, a bad incident. But it wasn’t the university,” said Smith’s father, Scott. “To me, it was Sandusky. Could others have been complicit? I guess so, but I don’t think it’s right to hold that against any of the students who were here or who are coming here.

“The university is much bigger than the whole scandal,” Scott Smith added. “To me, that’s his problem that needs to be taken care of legally.” Sandusky has maintained his innocence while awaiting a trial that is scheduled to start Tuesday with jury selection and could still bring more sordid details of the case to light. Still, the number of total undergraduate applications to all Penn State campuses is up more than 2 percent, according to figures provided by the university. Applications are up at the main University Park campus by 5 percent, as well as among transfers, by 7 percent, and international undergraduates, by 24 percent. At branch campuses, applications are down 5 percent. And more than 8,300 students have committed to begin attending University Park — the main campus, where Sandusky had worked — this summer or fall, up roughly 5 percent from a year ago.

Zombie talk spreads Several gory incidents prompt reports

TAMPA, Fla. — First came Miami: the case of a naked man eating most of another man’s face. Then Maryland, a college student telling police he killed a man, then ate his heart and part of his brain. It was different in New Jersey, where a man stabbed himself 50 times and threw bits of his own intestines at police. They pepper-sprayed him, but he was not easily subdued. He was, people started saying, acting like a zombie. And the whole discussion just kept growing, becoming a topic that the Internet couldn’t seem to stop talking about. The actual incidents are horrifying — and, if how people are talking about them is any indication, fascinating. In an America where zombie imagery is used to peddle everything from tools and weapons to garden gnomes, they all but beg the comparison. Violence, we’re used to. Cannibalism and people who should fall down but don’t? That feels like something else entirely.

So many strange things have made headlines in recent days that The Daily Beast assembled a Google Map tracking “instances that may be the precursor to a zombie apocalypse.” And the federal agency that tracks diseases weighed in as well, insisting it had no evidence that any zombie-linked health crisis was unfolding. The cases themselves are anything but funny. Each involved real people either suspected of committing unspeakable acts or having those acts visited upon them for reasons that have yet to be figured out. Maybe it’s nothing new, either; people do horrible things to each other on a daily basis. But what, then, made search terms like “zombie apocalypse” trend day after day last week in multiple corners of the Internet, fueled by discussions and postings that were often framed as humor? “They’ve heard of these zombie movies, and they make a joke about it,” says Lou Manza, a psychology professor at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania, who learned about the whole thing at the breakfast ta-

ble Friday morning when his 18year-old son quipped that a “zombie apocalypse” was imminent. Symbolic of both infection and evil, zombies are terrifying in a way that other horror-movie iconography isn’t, says Elizabeth Bird, an anthropologist at the University of South Florida. Zombies, after all, look like us. But they aren’t. They are some baser form of us — slowly rotting and shambling along, intent on “surviving” and creating more of their kind, but with no emotional core, no conscience, no limits. “Vampires have kind of a romantic appeal, but zombies are doomed,” Bird says. “Zombies can never really become human again. There’s no going back. “That resonates in today’s world, with people feeling like we’re moving toward an ending,” she says. “Ultimately they are much more of a depressing figure.” The “moving toward an ending” part is especially potent. For some, the news stories fuel a lurking fear that, ultimately, humanity is doomed. Speculation varies. It could be

a virus that escapes from some secret government lab, or one that mutates on its own. Or maybe it’ll be the result of a deliberate combination and weaponization of pathogens, parasites and disease. It will, many believe, be something we’ve created — and therefore brought upon ourselves. Zombies represent America’s fears of bioterrorism, a fear that strengthened after the 9/11 attacks, says Patrick Hamilton, an

Economic anxiety around the planet doesn’t help matters, either, with Greece, Italy and Spain edging closer to crisis every day.

Without peacekeepers, more civilians will die


HE LATEST ratcheting-up of tension in Syria has led to unprecedented international condemnation of the Bashar al-Assad regime. Yet the reality of the situation remains depressingly unchanged: the regime is not giving up and is unlikely to be forced out except by international military intervention – which will not be forthcoming. Certainly the massacre at Houla was horrible even by the standards of this conflict: more than 100 people killed, many of them children. They join the estimated 13,000 Syrians who have died in the past 15 months, most at the hands of the regime. The United Nations Security Council’s response was its toughest condemnation yet, a heartening development given that Syria’s ally Russia had blocked previous tougher declarations. Its language about

protecting civilians is not so far from that used in advance of military intervention last year in Libya. And yet this time there is almost no international appetite for military action. The only concrete peace plan is that of the U.N./Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, which is for a ceasefire and talks. A ceasefire should be the first step: the priority is to prevent more civilian deaths. Yet the current force of 250 U.N./ Arab League observers is clearly woefully inadequate; they made no difference to the tragedy unfolding in Houla. The international community must find a way to beef up that peacekeeping effort. A civil war will not only result in many more deaths, as fighting in parts of Lebanon already suggests, it could destabilize the whole region. London Evening Standard

Oh, Canada, please forgive us for being neglectful neighbor DURING ONE of his standup routines, comedian and late-night host Jon Stewart told a joke that encapsulated the often misunderstood relationship between the United States and Canada. Said Stewart: “A Canadian came up to me and asked, ‘What do Americans really think about Canada?’ And I was like, ‘We don’t.’” Bingo. Joke, truth and a growing problem, all spelled out in two words. In many ways, there is no country on Earth more important to the current and future welfare of the United States than Canada – and yet, many Americans and U.S. elected officials barely give our neighbor to the north any thought at all. They should. Full disclosure: I consider Canada my second home country. My ancestors went from Scotland to Nova Scotia, with my grandfather and others eventually making their way down to Boston. To this day, I might have more relatives in Canada than the United States, and I am quite proud of them and their country. Speaking of my family to the north, I remember that when my cousins would visit me in Boston, they could not only name every state in the United States, but also every capital of every state. Embarrassingly, over the years since, when I have asked friends and colleagues (including high-level government officials) if they could just name all the provinces in Canada (knowing the capitals and territories was way too much to ask), the most any could do was name four to eight of the 10 provinces.


DOUGLAS MACKINNON I am willing to bet that if you gave our members of Congress the same pop quiz, the vast majority would fail. Should we care? Yeah. Nobody likes being taken for granted. Especially your best and most trusted ally in the world. As President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney prepare to duke it out for the presidency, foreign policy will become a growing and much more contentious subject. Either or both, for altruistic or selfish political reasons, can score some easy points – and maybe win some votes in the process from the millions of Americans with Canadian ancestry – if they simply remember to insert Canada into the foreign policy debate. Why should they? Well, for starters, according to our State Department, the United States and Canada share the world’s largest and most comprehensive trading relationship. Canada is the leading export market for 36 of the 50 U.S. states and is a larger market for U.S. goods than all 27 countries of the European Union. The equivalent of about $1.4 billion in goods and more than 400,000 people cross the border between our two nations – per day. Energy (and lack thereof) is on everyone’s mind of late. OK, how about this: Canada is the single largest foreign supplier of energy to the United States. It provides more than 20 percent of all U.S. oil imports and 18

percent of U.S. natural gas imports, and it is the world’s second-largest holder of petroleum reserves after Saudi Arabia. Sounds like an amazingly important friend to me. If I were the government of the United States, I’d have FTD on speed-dial and be sending Canada fresh flowers and compliments every day. Want to talk about investment? The United States is Canada’s largest foreign investor, and it is the fifth largest in our nation. Finally, let’s focus for a moment on current events and national security. Canada and the United States share the largest land border in the world – an important factoid for a host of reasons. Not the least of which being the recent news that U.S. law enforcement and Homeland Security officials face an average of 55 encounters per day with “known or suspected terrorists” on U.S. watch lists. A number of those encounters take place on the U.S.-Canada border. As the world and the world’s economies spin more and more out of control, it would be wise for our leaders to more frequently remember and publicly acknowledge the strategic role Canada plays in our survival. We could not have a better ally, and yet we insult the country and its people on a regular basis with our ignorance and indifference. For our own good, it’s time to change the equation.

am the proud parent of a Fairview Elementary School student. I found the May 24 school board meeting to be heartbreaking. Dozens of students and parents were begging for their programs, teachers and nurses to be saved. It all fell on deaf ears. I compare it to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Presents weren’t taken, but hopes and dreams were stolen. The dream of becoming an Ivy League student or a star athlete was squashed. The hope of becoming a talented musician or having excellent teachers such as Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Krokos was shattered. We teach our kids to work hard and it will pay off. The students of Crestwood School District learned differently that night. They learned that their fate is somewhat based on a few elected officials who decide that money is more important than a well-rounded education. I pose a few questions: • Do the board members think that the residents of Crestwood School District do not have or cannot afford $36 a year to ensure the quality of education to which

we are accustomed? • Did the board members stick around after the meeting to see the numerous students crying due to their decisions? • Do the board members see the big picture? Fewer people would move to Crestwood and property values would decrease. In five years, will we have a football team, band or cheerleaders? My daughter is in second grade and her education is a priority. She loves school and wants to excel. She loves to sing and wants to play the drums. I hope she gets the chance to have at least, if not more of, the opportunities I had. Isn’t that what we all want for our kids?

Writer believes Stilp will be effective legislator


pproximately 33 years ago in Harrisburg I frequently ran into Eugene Stilp. It was often at a local luncheonette near the Governor’s Mansion. Stilp became a political activist at that time in response to the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island. He saw TMI as a natural result of the policies and practice of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and he effectively mobilized many people against the irresponsible rule of the NRC. He would laugh and joke about his developing role, but always was serious about the need for integrity in government. Decades later Gene Stilp brings this same commitment to his candidacy this year for U.S. Congress. He will be an effective representative for the residents of the 11th Congressional District. Approachable, clear-minded and forthright, he will give us something we haven’t received from the Republican incumbent. Richard J. Yost South Abington Township

COOLBAUGH Continued from Page 3A

hind. Coolbaugh has shared her son’s story many times. She listed the cause of death in his obituary and tells it to students as a speaker for the D.A.R.E. program. Coolbaugh believes unequivocally that addiction is a disease and thinks that by speaking about her son’s death she can shine a light on substance abuse and help dispel the stigma associated with it. That can in turn bring more help to addicts. “Breast cancer wasn’t even talked about a few years ago,” she said. “…You get out there and you talk about it, the stigma leaves.” Erik began experimenting with cigarettes and alcohol and soon moved on to marijuana and harder drugs like LSD, his mother said. He yo-yo’d in and out of addiction treatment as he struggled with addiction to heroin and other drugs, trying everything from outpatient counseling to long- and short-term rehab and methadone. “It wasn’t that he didn’t want to get better, and I think that’s what people don’t understand,” Coolbaugh said. “I think people think they’re just out there living the life, but it’s a job when you have an addiction like that. It’s a full-time

job: Getting the drugs, getting the money for the drugs.” Getting the money for the drugs led Erik into numerous encounters with law enforcement. From a first arrest on disorderly conduct charges in 1997 Erik started up a ladder of escalating charges. He was charged with drug offenses in 2001, followed by criminal trespassing charges in 2005, theft and forgery charges in 2006 and retail theft charges in 2007. Coolbaugh said Erik was stealing to feed his addiction during relapses, but he was also trying to get his life back on track. He had an apartment and a job that he liked, but was laid off in October due to budget cuts. “He had just bought his kids toys,” Coolbaugh said. “He was so excited because he had money from working.” The layoff led to eviction from his apartment and a depression that ended in relapse, Coolbaugh said. When he died three months later, Erik had cocaine, methadone and marijuana in his system. Coolbaugh said her son’s death has made her an advocate, and she hopes that in addition to finding and offering comfort to survivors she can find allies in her awareness campaign. “I’m hoping that in GRASP I’ll find somebody else out there who has that desire to do something and try to change things,” she said.

year-old Eleanor Dolan of Exeter, who initially belonged to Holy Name, said. “Father Pisaneschi was right. It’s not about the church, but the people in it. Of course I was upset and change is difficult, but you just have to go with the flow.” The church was a major part of Florence Balog’s life. The 72year-old has been a member of the parish for 64 years. She received all sacraments, except baptism, there, and was also married and later held funeral services for her husband who passed away in 1985 at the church. Her memories of the parish are numerous, and mainly of the joyous variety. “We were a very active parish. I remember we were one of the first to have an elevator and air conditioning. I was a choir member. I loved the May Crowning every year; it’s a wonderful group of people, and is the only parish I’ve known all these years.” Sarah Lispi, 27, and Lee Lispi, 28, and their only months-old daughter Aria were one of many

in the beginning procession, bringing up the baptismal book. Aria was the last child to be baptized in the church on April 15 and the Lispis were married there in May. Though these memories of the church stick out in Sarah’s mind, there’s an annual event she will never forget. “The bazaar,” she said with a smile. “I always loved to go, as far (back) as I can remember.” The first communion book was carried by May Fredericks, the confirmation book by Donald Reynolds, and one of the longest-married couples from the church, Lottie and Daniel Chipego, carried in the book of matrimony. They have been married for 64 years. Helen Kopetchny, the oldest member of the parish at 96, shut and locked the doors for the final time. Spirits were high among parishioners as they made their way to the new location for a continued celebration, with much thanks to Pisaneschi’s closing words: “If I have one thing to say to you today it would be this: God is not through with us yet. He has a story to complete, a story to write and every one of our names are in that book.”

decided to have an international festival this year “to celebrate the diversity of the parish and the community.” The decision of which ethnicities to feature “was based on our knowledge of the ethnic groups here and people who were willing to help,” he said. “In future years, we may want to introduce cultures that we don’t have (represented) here to help broaden our appreciation of the world around us, to give people an experience of different cultures around the world,” Shantillo said.

But in any community that is not Christian, the church is not a focal point of people’s social lives, she said. For example, people of the Hindu faith, of which Nirmul is a follower, do not gather in any kind of house of worship. “We have to look at other ways of encouraging integration,” Nirmul said. “The onus falls on everybody to participate in the process. You can’t hold any one group responsible.” She pointed to international festivals that used to be held in the 1970s through the 1990s at the 109th Field Artillery Armory in Wilkes-Barre as a type of event that can draw all members of a community together. “It would be worth reviving it. It was a healthy practice,” she said. But Nirmul admits that doing something similar in a community such as Mountain Top would be no easy task, because there is no central downtown area for the four townships and one borough of which the community is comprised. “The problem is that it’s not a town, so no one authority takes on the responsibility of bringing everyone together. There is no community center, there is no central focal point for a town,” she said. Mountain Top is generally considered a 58-square-mile region in

Legal and scientific research also shows an interesting fact about juries in abuse cases, Myers said. “The one thing the literature is clear about is that women tend to believe children more than men do,” he said.

Churches predominate Moghul pointed out that there are civic and community groups in Mountain Top in which people can socialize, such as the Kiwanis and a women’s club. But she agreed that socializing through church activities, which she considers a good thing, is predominant there. “But there could also be more tolerance,” Moghul said. “When it comes to (Nirmul’s) minority, there is simply not enough knowledge here. People here are not exposed to larger groups of minorities. I would like to see more socializing than just (through) the churches.” If prejudice does exist in Mountain Top, Moghul said neither she nor her late husband, who was Pakistani, experienced any, despite her thick German accent and her husband’s dark skin. “If it was there, it was very subtle.

ties such as the municipalities that make up Mountain Top. That becomes evident when considering that the bureau reports no foreign-born Mountain Top residents from Africa while Nirmul, her husband and three children were born in South Africa. Moghul also was impressed to learn that of the foreign-born residents in Mountain Top, 77 percent are naturalized U.S. citizens, compared to only 45 percent in Luzerne County. Moghul and her late husband immigrated to the United States in1958 and became naturalized citizens in 1962. She considers being able to speak English “extremely important” for any immigrant.

England, it was not as subtle,” she said, noting she and her husband lived in New Hampshire before moving to Mountain Top in 1970. Moghul, a retired journalist who wrote for the Mountaintop Eagle weekly newspaper, said she found Census Bureau data about foreign-born residents of Mountain Top interesting. According to the bureau, 3.5 percent of Mountain Top residents – 567 – were born in another country, compared to 4.1 percent in Luzerne County, 5.6 percent in Pennsylvania and 12.7 percent in the United States. Most of them – 322 – live in Fairview Township. And most of those in Mountain Top – about 58 percent – are from Asia.

The Attorney General’s Office will have to counter any contradictions or gaps in their witnesses’ memories with a demonstration that they do recall the heart of the matter — the alleged criminal acts for which Sandusky will be on trial, said David A. Harris, a University of Pittsburgh law professor. The existence of multiple accusers should help prosecutors, he said. “View it as silt in a riverbed,” Harris said. “Their testimony will build up in layers. So even if there are individual problems with the testimony of particular witnesses, the picture will fill in as a whole.” Prosecutors, who unlike the defense have had access to the accusers during trial preparation, presumably know where any weaknesses in their testimony will be, and have developed a strategy to counter them, Harris said. A.CharlesPerutoJr.,aveterandefense attorney in Philadelphia, said Sandusky’s lawyers can try to attack witnesses’ credibility through crossexamination — looking to shoot

holes their testimony — and by presenting evidence and testimony establishing witnesses had motives to lie. “You’re not going to have all eight (testify) in a credible manner,” Peruto said. “I don’t believe that there’s going to be eight victims painting a picture. It’s never that easy for the prosecution. Some of them get cold feet, some of them really mess up on details, and the way the details are driven home by the lawyers is going to make a difference.” Peruto said any conventional wisdom that the charges are a slamdunk could work against the prosecution. “You can never count a jury as a layup in any case,” he said. “The morepotentialjurorsreadthecaseis ironclad for the prosecution, the more potential for rebellion.” Before they deliberate, jurors will probably get an instruction from the judge that tells them they can believe all, some or none of a given witness’ testimony, Gover said.

BOSTON — Rajon Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists, and scored the final three points of the Boston Celtics’ 93-91 overtime victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday night that evened the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece.

Strange Sunday



Novak Djokovic hits a return in his fourth round match against Andreas Seppi at the French Open in Roland Garros stadium in Parison Sunday .

Djokovic, Federer struggle but still advance By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

PARIS — There was a moment, a little past 4 p.m. on a dank and dreary Sunday at the French Open, when the gray sky above appeared to be falling on some of the best of the best. A listless Novak Djokovic, looking very little like someone ranked No. 1 and bidding to become the first man in 43 years to win four consecutive Grand Slam titles, was trying to work his way out of a two-set deficit against 22nd-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy on Court Philippe Chatrier. Even more astonishingly, a flummoxed Roger Federer, owner of a record 16 major championships, was trudging to the sideline after dropping his first set against109th-ranked David Goffin of Belgium, a 21-year-old kid thrilled merely to

be sharing Court Suzanne Lenglen with his idol. Goffin, it must be noted, was a “lucky loser” — a player beaten in qualifying who got to make his Grand Slam debut only because someone else withdrew. By that point, one significant upset already was complete Sunday: The No. 1seeded woman, Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, was headed home after losing to No. 15 Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 6-2, 7-6 (4), busting a racket on the way out the door. Asked afterward what she’ll do to recover from the defeat, Azarenka replied sarcastically, “I’m going to kill myself,” then added: “This tournament is over for me. What’s to recover from?” It seemed reasonable, if ever so briefly, to ask in the afternoon whether the tournament might soon be over in the fourth

round for Djokovic and Federer, too. In the end, of course, the answer was no. For quite some time, Djokovic missed shots this way and that, then shook his head or yelled at himself or spread his arms wide with palms up as if to ask, “What’s going on here?” He finished with 81 unforced errors in all, exactly his total for his first three matches combined. But Seppi’s not nearly as accustomed to these stages or stakes, and Djokovic pulled out a 4-6, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 victory, his 25th in a row at a major tournament. “One of those days where ... nothing is working,” Djokovic said. “I could not get into the rhythm.” He began to turn things around by breaking serve to begin the third set, and he kept on doing that, nine times in all.

Tiger Woods’ come-from-behind victory ties him with Jack Nicklaus for most PGA Tour wins. By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

Doug O’Neill says as long as I’ll Have Another is fine everything else is good.

NEW YORK — Nothing ever comes easy in the nerve-racking weeks before the Belmont Stakes with a Triple Crown on the line. Doug O’Neill, the trainer of I’ll Have Another, is learning just how difficult it is to avoid all the roadblocks as he prepares O’Neill his Kentucky and Belmont Derby Preakness winStakes ner for a chance 4:30 p.m. to become the Saturday first Triple NBC Crown champion in 34 years. “Welcome to New York,” rival trainer Dale Romans said. While I’ll Have Another has been a picture of perfection during his morning gallops around Belmont Park, oblivious to what’s going on around him, it’s been one thing after another for Team O’Neill. Traffic jams. Suspensions. Nasal strips. Visas. Detention barns. Loose horses. And it’s still nearly a week before the race. “I’ve been looking under my car every morning before I start it up,” O’Neill kidded. The 44-year-old trainer shrugs off — at least publicly — the criticism thrown his way for numerous drug and medication violations, including a 45-day suspension issued last week in California. He prefers to accentuate the positive, praising the talent of his chestnut colt and insisting he takes care of his horses as well as any other trainer. The other problems? “It’s all about the horse. As long as the horse is going great, we’re all doing good,” he said. “If he was battling and then I was getting a lot of stuff from other areas, it would be difficult. As long as he’s doing good, everything else is just talk.” Even when New York’s racing and wagering board ordered all Belmont horses moved to a detention barn to beef up security beginning Wednesday, O’Neill didn’t take it personally. “With a horse like I’ll Have Another, you’re under a really strong microscope,” he said. “It’s all just trying to show the public we care for the horses and that when you put your hard-earned money on one of the horses you can know they’re all clean and pure and ready to go.”

out to be a winner for Woods

DUBLIN, Ohio — Tiger Woods picked the right place to match Jack Nicklaus for career PGA Tour wins, and with a shot that even left Nicklaus amazed. Two shots behind with three holes to play, his ball in an impossible spot behind the 16th green, Woods holed a flop shot “The most from 50 feet away that turned bogey into birdie unbelievand sent him on his way able, gutsy to a stunning comeback Sunday in the Memo- shot I’ve rial. ever Woods made three birdies on his last four seen.” holes for a 5-under 67, Jack Nicklaus matching the lowest On Tiger Woods score of the final round, flop shot on 16 Sunday and he finished in style. He hit 9-iron to just inside 10 feet, and raised his putter — a pose that Nicklaus made famous for so many years — well before the ball tumbled into the cup. It was his fifth win at Muirfield Village, and the 73rd of his PGA Tour career to match Nicklaus at No. 2 on the all-time list. Sam Snead won a record 82 times. For Woods, it was a dramatic end to his worst three-tournament stretch as a pro, and it came with the U.S. Open looming. He started the day four shots behind and wound up with a two-shot victory over Andres Romero (67) and Rory Sabbatini, who was in control of the tournament until he fell victim again to some old magic by Woods. Woods said he didn’t miss a shot all day, though that flop shot stands out. “The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I’ve ever seen,” Nicklaus said from the TV booth. “Look at the position he was in. If he’s short, the tournament is over. If he’s long, the tournament is over. He puts it in the hole.”

John Mikiewicz, of Old Forge, gets a closer look at his shot during Sunday’s Wyoming Valley Country Club Classic’s championship match at in Hanover Township.

ance in Saturday’s quarterfinals, where he birdied the 8 through 14 holes and added another birdie on 16. “It just mentally drains you,” Brunn Jr. said of string of long days on the course. “I could tell at the end I just didn’t have it. I was losing it.” And Biscotti and Mikiewicz never stopped winning. “Weappliedalotofpressuretoa guy (Brunn Jr.) who we knew was

going to go out and make a lot of birdies,” Mikiewicz said. “Tom played great, I played well, we were going out there and playing consistently.” And that strong, steady effort finally put Biscotti and Mikiewicz on top. “We’ve been working really, really hard as a team,” Mikiewicz said. “It means everything right now.”


Rangers are new to state playoffs Northwest is in uncharted territory, playing in their first state tournament game against District 3 champion Greenwood this afternoon at King’s. The program has had success, winning seven prior Wyoming Valley Conference division crowns. The Rangers reached the District 2 final against Elk Lake in 2009, when Northwest was in Class 2A. “That was a tough act to follow with (former coach) Ryan Minor,” Northwest coach Karen May said. “We lost seven seniors coming into the season. Last year, a lot of these girls hadn’t seen the field.” Moving to Class A soon after the loss to Elk Lake (Northwest’s last game on the King’s home field), the latest version of the Rangers are a tested bunch -the bulk of their schedule came against Class 2A schools this season. With three seniors and one junior on the roster, a young Northwest squad had two big games against District 2 top seed Hanover Area during the

regular season, including a showdown for the WVC-II title in the final week of the season. While the Rangers dropped the game against the Hawkeyes, they took a lot from it. “When we lost to Hanover in the championship game, we all cried a little bit,” Northwest shortstop Jaden Perrillo said. “We wanted to win so much. Since then, we’ve wanted to come out not to win, but to try our best, relax and be happy with the outcome.” From there, Northwest then took down the best programs in the district, defeating Old Forge and Blue Ridge consecutively. Those two programs had met in the previous six district championship games. Northwest (14-3) has averaged 9 runs per game thus far, including 4.5 in its two postseason games. All nine starters have had at least one hit in the postseason, and four have extra-base hits. “That is so relaxing to me as a pitcher,” Northwest senior Rachel Linso said. “To have them always pull through for me, it

let’s me go out there and just get outs.” It has shown, as Northwest has allowed just 2.41 runs per game over the course of the year, and just two total in two playoff games. Greenwood (14-5), coached by Troy Gantt, won its fourth consecutive District 3 title last week. The Wildcats beat Millersburg, with whom they split their regular-season series, 4-3 in the one-game showdown for the district crown. What does May expect for today? “Nothing,” May said Friday of what she knew of the Wildcats. “We didn’t know anything of Blue Ridge until we got to the field today. We come to play no matter who we’re playing. We’ve seen fast pitchers, we’ve seen offspeed pitchers. These girls have won against all of them.” The Wildcats feature two quality pitchers, likely starter Jess Heichel and Chelsea Hicks, and top hitter Amy Heggenstaller. Salene Shaffer is a spark near the top of the order for Greenwood.

Championship is goal for Nanticoke By JOHN MEDEIROS

It’s deja vu all over again for Nanticoke. A veteran team, the Trojans came into the season with a lofty goal -- a second state championship. Nanticoke won the Class 2A title in 2010 with an impressive run through the District 2 and PIAA brackets. Six starters this season were in the starting lineup in 2010. Only pitcher Hannah Rubasky, catcher Katie Wolfe and second baseman Kayley Schinski are new to the starting lineup from that championship season. “We definitely love the feeling of winning and this season has been so successful,” Wolfe said. “It means a lot. For our seniors who didn’t play a lot last time, this is a very special feeling. With 13 seniors on the roster, we have a lot to play for.” Two years ago, Nanticoke started its pursuit of glory at Blue Mountain High School’s Patton Field against Pine Grove. Today, the Trojans’ path to another state tournament follows that same map. Absent from the lineups will

GOLF came through this time.” Did they ever. Biscotti and Mikiewicz held a four-hole lead with six to play, and wound up dispatching the red-hot team of Skiro and Brunn Jr. – who put up an unprecedented tournament stretch of sinking seven birdies over the final eight holes of Saturday’s quarterfinals. “Couldn’t keep it going, though,” said Brunn Jr., the golf coach at Holy Redeemer High School. “We played OK for most of the afternoon.” Skiro and Brunn Jr. would have had to put up a phenomenal effort to beat the consistency of Biscotti and Mikiewicz. “They didn’t’ make many mistakes,” Brunn Jr. said. “They deserved to win.” Not even the soft wind gusts and periods of light rain seemed to bother Biscotti and Mikiewicz. “I like it,” Mikiewicz said of the less-than-ideal weather. “I think if the conditions are bad, it’s a little advantageous for me. If the wind blows, I don’t hit a high ball, I keep it in play.” That didn’t mean the team took anything off its game, though. “We tried to be aggressive from the first hole to the last hole,” Biscotti said. The final match never got that far. A tiring Brunn Jr. – who participated in stroke play on Thursday and followed that with two rounds of golf on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – wasn’t quite able to duplicate his eye-popping perform-


be both pitchers from that game -- now-college standouts Sarah Bertoni (Nanticoke, now at Millersville) and Hope Spancake (Pine Grove, now at California of Pa.). Pine Grove (24-2) looks to be a near-polar opposite of the Trojans, with just three seniors and four juniors on the roster. Junior Ethel Santai has 15 shutouts this season and a 0.48 ERA. She has 312 strikeouts and just 25 walks in 175 innings. Six Cardinals batters have averages above .300, with Courtney Brown, Kendra Koons, Santai and Amanda Kemmerling all providing pop at the plate. Samantha Bertasavage is the team’s leading base stealer and bunter. Nanticoke (21-3) has been a different team since winning the Wyoming Valley Conference Division I East title in a playoff against Class 4A Hazleton Area -- both literally and figuratively. The new-look Trojans have been more balanced offensively, complimenting a composed defense behind Rubasky. “It was right before the Hazleton (playoff) game,” Nanticoke coach Gary Williams said of a re-

arranged batting order. “Hazleton is so familiar with us that we wanted to change things up. So far, it’s been working for us, so we might as well stick with it.” It should be an intriguing matchup, as Nanticoke has eight starters hitting above .300, with three -- Ange Hillan, Maggie Gola and Schinski -- batting over .400 for the team that led the Wyoming Valley Conference in scoring with 133 runs during the season. “Schinski was our best player as far as on-base percentage, so we moved her up,” Williams said of taking the junior out of the No. 9 spot in the order. Unlike Pine Grove, Nanticoke also has an option1-A to go along with Rubasky in the circle, as Brooke Chapin appeared in 14 games this season.

The regular season only means so much for District 2 baseball teams, as every squad is eligible for the postseason. For Holy Redeemer, the wins and losses can be even less important as the only Class 2A team playing in Division I of the Wyoming Valley Conference, facing 3A and 4A schools each game. Even still, when the Royals opened the 2012 WVC schedule at 0-6, it was tough for them to accept. “We play in a tough division, but you never expect to come out like that,” Redeemer coach Chris Ritsick said. “It was a gut check for the team and for the seniors. But they got it rolling in the middle of the season, and it hasn’t stopped since.” Redeemer closed out the regular season going 5-4 against bigger schools before sweeping through 2A competition in the postseason. The Royals made their third try at a title count, overwhelming Holy Cross for the young school’s first district baseball championship. In four District 2 tournament games, Redeemer outscored opponents 27-10, pulling out three tight games in the late innings before taking control early in the title game. Now the Royals look to carry that momentum into the state tournament as they open against D4 runner-up South Williamsport at 4:30 p.m. today at Pittston Area’s varsity field in Hughestown. Redeemer has hit its stride at the plate and on the mound in the

playoffs, hitting .369 as a squad in the postseason while sporting a team ERA of 1.75. Pat Condo gave up just one run on six hits in 13 playoff innings,

striking out 16. Catcher Joel Peterlin is 9-for-16 to lead the team while three other regulars are hitting .500 through four games. Condo and Peterlin are two of eight seniors who started in the district title game and nine who have seen the field this postseason. That group had to shake off losses in the district title game as sophomores and juniors before prevailing last week. “It’s a great bunch of seniors, and I’m just so happy for them,” Ritsick said. “To congratulate them finally with the gold, it was just a great moment.” Thursday’s title win capped off an emotional 30 hours for those seniors, who beat top-seeded Hanover Area early on Wednesday before attending graduation that evening. From there, it was another early afternoon start on Thursday before the celebration started. “I knew it was going to be a big week coming in,” said third baseman Will Cavanaugh, one of those starting seniors. “Couldn’t be happier.” “It’s been just like a family,” said another, first baseman Christian Choman. “We’ve been going through this whole thing, all of us, since freshman year. It’s a great team to be a part of, and it’s been a great story for all of us. “We’re feeling real good, but we’ve got to start back up again. Got to keep practicing. Got to start right from where we did from the first game in districts. We’re playing our best ball of the year headed into states, but you can’t go in too confident. You’ve just got to ride the momentum.”

Spartans packing plenty of talent By DEREK LEVARSE

Wyoming Valley West is on a run to the PIAA baseball tournament for the third time in six years, and a lot about the situation feels the same. Like those past two trips to states, the Spartans convincingly won a division title and then the District 2 Class 4A title. They come to the big stage with plenty of confidence. Even the venue is the same, as they play at King’s College’s Betzler complex, just as they did in 2007 and 2009. What could set this Spartans squad apart from those other two is their talent on the mound. Workhorse pitchers Tommy Alexander and Matt Zielen have both come up big this year for Valley West, which faces District 3 runner-up Penn Manor at 4:30 p.m. today at King’s in the first round. That duo combined to throw 83 out of 93 innings during the Wyoming Valley Conference season and all 14 in the district tournament. Along with Zane Stelevich and Joe Pechulis for short stints out of the bullpen, Valley West posted a team ERA of 1.43 in 14 regular season games. The 2007 team was right around 2.00 while the 2009 squad was just above 4.00. Alexander went 8-0 with 73 strikeouts and a one-hitter to his name. Zielen finished 5-0 with 33 strikeouts and tossed a no-hitter against Crestwood for good measure. “They can go in any situation,” Spartans coach John Milius said. “Matt has two saves besides (his record as a starter). He’s been in

“Maybe I could have started the third set better. I could have done a little more there,” Seppi said. “But he returns very well, and gets serves back almost always, which makes things difficult.” Djokovic recognized that part of his problems early on had to do with better-than-expected play by Seppi, who knocked off No. 14 Fernando Verdasco to get past the third round at a major tournament for the first time. So after they shook hands at the net when Djokovic finally


the pressure cooker a few times already. “All we’re looking now is to get through four games.” In Wednesday’s championship win against Scranton, Milius used both Alexander and Zielen, with the latter coming on in the

seventh to pick up two strikeouts and the save. “It’s not about pitch count. It’s about our coach having the ability to use me and having the ability to use Matt,” Alexander said. “I could’ve come out in the fifth and Matt would have done the job. I could’ve come out in the fourth and Matt would have done the job. Alexander – an Old Dominion recruit and a candidate to be selected in this week’s MLB draft – started and picked up the win in both district games, striking out 17 in 13 innings. History suggests Alexander will get the nod against today against the Comets (14-11). In the last two appearances at states with the Spartans, he went with his ace in the opening round. Valley West lost in extra innings in the 2007 opener against Cumberland Valley but pulled out a tight one at the end against Central Dauphin in 2009 before falling to Parkland in the quarters. The program’s best run came in 1996, reaching the Class 3A state title game in Harrisburg before bowing out. “Every team that you face from here on in is going to be at the top of their game,” Milius said. “And the team that makes the fewest amount of mistakes is going to win the ballgame. And not necessarily the physical mistakes, the errors, but the mental mistakes. Throwing to the right base, throwing behind the runner, stuff like that. “The team that does that is going to come out on top.”

closed out the 4-hour, 18-minute win, the Serb applauded Seppi and pointed toward the Italian, telling the crowd to salute him. The third-seeded Federer, the 2009 champion at Roland Garros, did that one better after his 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 victory, giving Goffin a tap on the head and a pat on the backside when they were done playing, then hugging him at the crowd’s behest during an oncourt interview. What a thrill for the Belgian, who unabashedly spoke earlier in the tournament about having photos and posters of Federer up in his bedroom as a child. “I’ve had an extraordinary week,” said the slender Goffin, who might be mistaken for a ball

boy. “The icing on the cake was to play here against Roger.” Once Federer seized control in the second and third sets, the outcome never really seemed in doubt. In the last set, Goffin won one point with a touch volley, then raised his index finger — signaling No. 1 — and, to the delight of roaring spectators, bowed to all four corners of the arena. Later, Goffin explained, it felt as though “the stadium was on fire.” Federer’s quarterfinal opponent will be No. 7 Tomas Berdych or No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro, whose match was suspended because of darkness with 2009 U.S. Open champion del Potro ahead, two sets to one.

Answering vital questions as the season heats up Ahhh. June. It’s here. It’s the first month of the rest of your year. The days are getting longer. The temperatures warmer. School’s out. Weddings are in. And in baseball, trends start to become facts. Hot starts are cooled off, and slow starters begin heating up. All those early-season troubles you’ve been having? Well, when this month is over they’ll either be nothing but memories or a glaring reminder that you are the fantasy equivalent of the Chicago Cubs. So, to help you navigate the season, here’s a handy-dandy quiz, done “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” style. Sorry, though. You don’t get any life-

RICH SHEPOSH FANTASY BASEBALL lines. Can’t afford ’em. Who wants to win your league? Question 1: In 1998, the Cubs’ Sammy Sosa set a major league record with 20 home runs in June. Which 2012 slugger is capable of a similar run? A: Miguel Cabrera, Tigers B: Albert Pujols, Angels C: Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins D: Prince Fielder, Tigers Answer: C - Giancarlo Stanton. His line for month of May looked like Buddy Biancalana’s career: 12 HRs and 30 RBI. Stanton, like most power hitters, usually find their stride as the season wears on. So he


Kings are halfway to Cup win

could actually post better numbers in the months to come. If you can get him in a trade, do it. Question 2: Esteban Bellan became the first Cuban to play Major League Baseball in America in 1869. Which of these Cuban defectors, currently on MLB rosters, is having the best season? A: Yoenis Cespedes, A’s B: Dayan Viciedo, White Sox C: Kendrys Morales, Angels D: Alexei Ramirez, White Sox Answer: B - Dayan Viciedo. Before the season, the spotlight was on Cespedes as the hottest bat out of Cuba. But Viciedo has staged a coup of his own and stolen that spotlight. He’s hitting in the heart of a potent lineup and putting up great numbers. (12 HRs, 29 RBI) He’s likely been scarfed off your waiver wire by now, but if he hasn’t been … GRAB HIM!

Question 3: Marty Bystrom was a 22-year-old rookie when he went 5-0 for the Phillies after being called up in September 1980. Which current minor league pitching prospect could have the biggest fantasy impact as the season goes on? A: Shelby Miller, Cardinals B: Trevor Bauer, Diamondbacks C: Brad Peacock, A’s D: Trevor May, Phillies Answer: C - Brad Peacock Oakland got Peacock from the Nationals in the Gio Gonzalez trade, so you know he’s highlytouted. He’s also one of the few top pitching prospects with major league success. (2-0, 0.75 ERA in 2011) Obviously, there’s no guarantee he’ll get called up this year, but if you see that he is, pick him up. The risk is worth it. Question 4: Charles “Old

was drafted ahead of Tim Lincecum and Clayton Kershaw in the 2006 MLB draft? A: Matt Bush, Rays B: Brad Lincoln, Pirates C: Ian Kennedy, Diamondbacks D: J.J. Hoover, Reds Answer: B - Brad Lincoln. Don’t look now, but the Pittsburgh Pirates are building one heck of a starting rotation. James McDonald is there now, prospect Gerrit Cole will be there in the future and Lincoln is, sort of, in between. The Pirates are using the fourth overall pick in 2006 out of the bullpen at the moment. But he’s scheduled to make a start this Tuesday and has enough talent to stay in the rotation. You want him in your rotation as well. Rich Sheposh writes about fantasy baseball for The Times Leader.



Shawn Johnson ends comeback

Dover’s 7th heaven for Jimmie Johnson

Sprint Cup driver scores another victory at track known as ‘The Monster Mile.’

Needing just two more victories to win championship, Los Angeles returns home.

By DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer

By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — Although Mike Richards has only been in Los Angeles for less than a year, he has a pretty good idea what 45 years of simmering frustration will sound like when his Kings take the ice with the Stanley Cup nearly in reach. “That’s probably one of the loudest rinks I’ve ever played in, and it’s going to be even UP NEXT louder toGAME 3 morrow,” the New Jersey center said Devils Sunday, alat ready anticiLos Angeles pating the enKings ergy at Sta8 p.m. tonight ples Center NBCSN for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals tonight. A coronation just feels imminent for these Kings, who opened the finals by adding two more victories in New Jersey to the longest run of road perfection in NHL playoff history —10-0 this season, and 12-0 dating to last season. Now that the Kings are back home on the West Coast, the Stanley Cup has never been closer to going Hollywood. Los Angeles is two wins away from claiming the franchise’s first title and burying 41⁄2 decades of monotonous ineptitude interrupted only by short stretches of brilliance from Wayne Gretzky, Marcel Dionne and a few other stars who wore the club’s everchanging uniforms — including another switch to that eye-catching “LA” logo before this season. Hockey has always had a steadfast fan base out here among the movie stars and palm trees, but those fans are conditioned to accept small victories as fuel for their faith. These Kings have abruptly erased this club’s tedious reputation with a 14-2 playoff run that has few equals in NHL history. “I don’t think I’ve ever been on a team like this where everybody is locked in,” said Jeff Carter, whose persistence on the puck led to the overtime goal that won Game 2. “Everybody knows what they need to do to go out on the ice and get it done.” It’s impossible to measure how many casual Los Angeles fans have resumed their interest in hockey, digging into their closets for the purple-and-gold Kings hat or that old No. 99 jersey before jumping on a bandwagon that’s sagging under the weight of witnesses to this team’s brilliance. Kings gear can be spotted everywhere from Santa Monica to downtown, from Dodger Stadium to even Angel Stadium, which sits across a freeway from the archrival Anaheim Ducks’ home rink.

Hoss” Radbourn won 59 games in 1884 for the Providence Grays. Which pitcher will lead the Majors in wins this year? A: Chris Sale, White Sox B: Cole Hamels, Phillies C: Gio Gonzalez, Nationals D: Yu Darvish, Rangers Answer: A - Chris Sale, White Sox OK, as long as Justin Verlander is playing, this answer is a bit of a stretch. Although not that much of one. First of all, he’s got the talent to be an ace. He plays for a lineup that scores a lot, and he’s getting better as the season wears on. It would have been easier if you pried Sale loose from another owner before he struck out 15 on Monday. But since we can’t go back in time, up the ante and try now.

Dover, Del. — Jimmie Johnson dominated again and won for the seventh time at Dover International Speedway on Sunday. Johnson matched Richard Petty and Bobby Allison for most career victories on the 1-mile concrete track. Johnson also stretched the Hendrick Motorsports’ winning streak to three. Johnson won at Darlington Raceway and Kasey Kahne won the Coca Cola 600. Johnson also won the nonpoints All-Star race during that span as the No. 48 Chevrolet is heating up as he chases a sixth Cup championship. Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Clint Bowyer rounded out the top five. Johnson won his second race of the season. He celebrated in Victory Lane wearing a multicolored circus wig as part of a sponsorship promotion for a movie. Petty needed 46 races to win seven times and Allison had 35 races. Johnson got to seven in his 21st start at the track known as the Monster Mile. “You whipped ‘em today,” crew chief Chad Knaus said over the radio. No active driver owns the track like Johnson. He led 289 of the 400 laps and looked every bit like the driver who swept the two Cup races at Dover in 2002 and


Jimmie Johnson celebrates his victory Sunday.

2009. Johnson last won at Dover on Sept. 26, 2010. “God, I love this place,” Johnson said as he took a victory spin. Johnson’s win came about 390 miles after a massive 13-car accident that took out defending Cup champion Tony Stewart. He eventually returned and finished 25th. Jeff Gordon, Johnson’s teammate, had perhaps the car of the race until a wheel issue knocked him down to13th. Gordon said after the disappointing finish that he had the car to beat. Maybe. But Johnson had the win. Fellow Hendrick driver Earnhardt ran up front most of the race and posted his fifth top-five of the season. His losing streak stretched to 142 races, but he has only one finish outside the top 10 in his last nine races.


Stacy Lewis captures LPGA title by 4 strokes The Associated Press

GALLOWAY, NJ. — Stacy Lewis shot an even-par 71 Sunday to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Lewis finished 54 holes at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club at 12-under-par 201. It was Lewis’ third LPGA win and her second of 2012; she won the Mobile LPGA Classic in April. And she reached the quarterfinals in the match play even two weeks ago. Last year, her first career victory came in a major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. This victory was worth $225,000 from a $1.5 million purse. Katherine Hull sank a 10-foot birdie putt at the final green to finish alone in second place at 8-under 205 after a closing 68. Mika Miyazato and Azahara Munoz were both at 206 after rounds of 68 and 69, respectively. Lexi Thompson, Anna

Nordqvist, and Hee-Won Han were both at 207. Champions Tour WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Jay Haas finished with a 16-under 197 total to win the Principal Charity Classic by five strokes on Sunday, becoming the first golfer to win the Champions Tour event in Iowa three times. Haas, the winner at Glen Oaks Country Club in 2007 and 2008, led by three shots heading into Sunday and made it stand up with a final round 5-under 66. Haas’s 16-under tied the tournament mark set by Gil Morgan in 2006 and matched the largest victory of the season in the Champions Tour. Kirk Triplett set the course record with a 9-under 62 and finished second at 11-under 202 along with Larry Mize.

We have a cool and wet week ahead of us, so break out the light jackets and rain coats. Rain showers will stay with us today, and we could see a thunderstorm. The temperatures will be in the mid 60s for most of the area. The sky will remain cloudy for Tuesday and Wednesday with scattered showers. Thursday looks like it will be partly cloudy with some showers and a high of 70. Friday looks like it will be mainly dry! We could see a stray shower, but temperatures will slowly rise back into the mid 70s by the weekend. Saturday looks like it will be our first completely dry day with sunshine and a high of 75. -Michelle Rotella

Support for Candy’s Place

Lt. Colonel Robert W. Hansen, USAF Ret., was recently inducted into the Chapel of the Four Chaplains, Legion of Honor, in recognition of service rendered and countless time and energy devoted to helping others. The award is named in memory of the four Chaplains who were on board the small troopship S.S. Dorchester when it was torpedoed by a Nazi submarine on Feb. 3, 1943. The ceremony was conducted at the Marine Corps Center in Wyoming. The award was presented by William Jones, former Master of the Knights of Columbus, Assumpta Council 3987, an official from the Pennsylvania Central Knights of Columbus. Lt. Colonel Hansen served 30 years as a pilot flying bombers and transport aircraft. Upon his retirement from active duty, he continued volunteering and serving the military community.
