BridgeView, for children with severe mental health issues, has struggled financially. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – An inpatient treatment center for children with severe mental health issues will shut its doors in a month, its operator announced Tuesday. Children’s Service Center announced it will close the BridgeView treatment facility off South Wilkes-Barre Boulevard, the only center of its kind in Luzerne County, on July 7. Children’s Service Center Director Mike Hopkins said the center struggled financially since opening in 2004, and has lost more than $2 million in the past three years. The state began cutting referrals to inpatient juvenile treatment See BRIDGEVIEW, Page 11A

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 2011

SCRANTON – Lackawanna County Commissioner Michael Washo testified Tuesday that he objected to the awarding of several contracts that are at the heart of the corruption case against Robert Cordaro and A.J. Munchak, but as the minority commissioner, he was powerless to stop them. Describing his tenure with Cordaro and Munchak as “the most confrontational work environment of my life,” Washo, a Democrat, said he repeated- Munchak ly tried to rein in the Republican majority commissioners as they went on a spending spree that more than doubled the county’s debt from roughly $88 million in 2003 to $200 million in 2005.

pairs to the pool’s crumbling walls. Ellen Raddle, West Pittston’s secretary, said the decision to close the pool wasn’t an easy one, but circumstances dictated it. “Membership is down and has been dropping every year.” Last year, the borough opted to pay the Greater Pittston YMCA $22,000 to operate the pool, but only 90 season passes were sold. That figure was above 200 less than 20 years ago. “It’s sad,” Bonita said. He theorized that young people have found other ways to occupy their time in the summer, including video games, web surfing or watching television.

WEST PITTSTON – Savino Bonita remembers a time not too long ago when there would be double-file lines of people waiting to get into the borough pool. But declining interest levels, coupled with costly annual repairs, have led to the closing of the recreation landmark – perhaps for good.

The Society of Jesus, better known as the Jesuits, have permanently removed a Catholic priest who has worked in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties since 2003 after an accusation he sexually assaulted a minor. The Rev. Louis Bonacci has worked as coordinator of spiritual direction for priests and deacons at the Diocese of Scranton since 2005. He also worked as an adjunct theology professor and campus minister at the University of Scranton in 2003 and 2004 and as an adjunct theology professor at Misericordia University in 2004. The Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus said it received an allegation in April that Bo-

nacci touched a minor in a family home improperly in the period between 1978 and 1982. Bonacci was then working as assistant director of campus ministry at Loyola College in Baltimore. The Jesuits said it was the first such allegation they received about Bonacci. The Maryland Province said it removed Bonacci from all ministry while investigating the allegation. The Diocese of Scranton said it also suspended the priest’s employment immediately. After investigating the incident, the Jesuits permanently removed Bonacci from ministry. The Diocese of Scranton has also terminated his employment. The Jesuits said in a release he

now lives at a monitored residence within his Jesuit community in Maryland. The Maryland Province said it reported the allegation to police in Maryland, but police will not begin an investigation unless the victim of the alleged assault contacts them directly. The Diocese of Scranton in February removed another priest, the Rev. Mark Honhart, accused in a Missouri lawsuit of molesting a young boy in the 1980s. The Maryland Province also issued a notice in December seeking information from possible victims abused as children about Neil McLaughlin, a Jesuit priest who was ordained in 1959 and served in Scranton for much of his religious career.

Goldsworthy bows out; Denisco chosen Former mayor is taking position with governor’s northeast regional office. By WILLIAM BELL Times Leader Correspondent

WEST PITTSTON – Mayor Bill Goldsworthy resigned from office during Tuesday night’s council meeting because he has accepted a position as deputy director of Gov. Tom Corbett’s Northeast Regional office. In his mayor’s report, Goldsworthy spoke of his almost 40 years of volunteer and elected service to West Pittston. He spoke of the highs and the lows, including the death of two firefighters, and he thanked all who have helped him over the years. He ended by supporting Anthony Denisco as his replacement. Council President Brian Thorton praised Goldsworthy and opened up nominations from council for the vacant post. Denisco’s was the only

nomination, and council unanimously appointed him. Thorton said there would be a Goldsworthy formal swearing-in for the new mayor at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the borough building. Denisco currently serves as the borough’s volunteer Emergency Management Coordinator, and he is a lifelong borough resident. Council approved a payment of $40,090 to Reilly Associates for engineering work related to Phase I of the sewer project. Council also moved to pay $549,182 to Pioneer Construction for construction work related to Phase I. Thorton said the amount was because the firm is now involved in the more expensive paving portions of the project. Councilman James Rose said new recycling containers will be distributed on Saturday at the borough garage. He also said there is a prob-

lem with lawn waste pickup. West Pittston has had an agreement with West Wyoming for the use of its state-approved lawn waste drop-off/ compost site in return for certain services from West Pittston, such as picking up West Wyoming’s recycling and providing street sweeper service. However, West Wyoming Council requested a new agreement, and at its meeting Monday night, it rejected a revised agreement from West Pittston. West Pittston Council moved to stop providing services to West Wyoming and to withdraw from a joint grant application with West Wyoming and other municipalities for recycling equipment. Rose said lawn waste would be picked up in West Pittston this week, but it will not be picked up for the next two weeks while the borough locates a new site.

Resident says Exeter bar is a public nuisance Tavern’s patrons have made offensive statements to his teen daughters, man says. By B. GARRET ROGAN Times Leader Correspondent

EXETER -- Borough resident Carmen Nardozzi said at Tuesday night’s regular council meeting that Penn Avenue bar Nak’s by the Tracks is a public nuisance and he complained that the establishment is interfering with his way of life. Nardozzi, who lives across the street from the bar, said he has taken to arming himself and placing weapons throughout his house in response to offensive statements made to his teenage daughters by the bar’s patrons and altercations he has had with the owner. He also said that many of his older female neighbors support his claims but are afraid to speak

out for fear of retaliation. Nardozzi said that, beside the altercations he has had with the owner, bottle rockets have been fired at his house from persons in the vicinity of the bar. He also complained about blatant noise violations and frequent public urination. After the meeting, the bar owner’s name could not be verified. A phone number listed in the Yellow Pages is no longer in service. The Facebook page for Nak’s by the Tracks has the same invalid phone number. It listed “Satan” as the bar’s general manager. Councilman John Morgan, who lives near the bar, confirmed Nardozzi’s claims about the noise. Police Chief John McNeil acknowledged conversations he has had with Nardozzi before Tuesday’s meeting and stated he instructed an officer to take action.

Resident and former council member Joseph Esposito suggested an officer should be present at the bar when it closes at 2 a.m. and he criticized the police force for having a shift change at 2 a.m. Esposito was also critical of the borough’s decision to hire a new full-time officer and challenged the council to explain how it would do so without raising municipal taxes. No council members responded. In other police-related news, the council’s intentions to hire another officer were delayed by possibly as much as six weeks because of incomplete information regarding changes to Exeter Civil Service policies.

Holloman and Salko allegedly told police they were looking around at merchandise on the second floor when they decided to access the consignment store on the first floor. Salko said he crawled beneath the second floor and “fell through” the drop ceiling into the store room. Salko got up and told Holloman he was going to “look for some money in the cash register,” the complaints say. Holloman acted as a look-out when Salko allegedly stole $20 in change from a locked cash register before he crawled back to the second floor. Holloman allegedly stole a video game system, a lava lamp and computer speakers from the building. The video game system was sold for $6 to a person known to the two men, police said. Preliminary hearings are scheduled on June 15 before District Judge Gerald Feissner in Freeland.

WILKES-BARRE – It seemed fitting that the podium in St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church would be adorned with an eagle. Robert “Bobby” Klein, the 52-yearold victim of last Monday’s fire at 73 Sullivan St., would have liked that. Klein was remembered Tuesday by family and friends for being an ardent Philadelphia Eagles fan and much more. “He was a good man with a bad problem,” Stefanie Wolownik, executive director of REACH Inc., said of Klein. “I knew him for nine years and all that time, he was homeless.” Klein died in the fire May 30 – one week after his birthday -- along with James Moore, Jr., also 52. A memorial service for Moore will be held Thursday. The investigation to determine the cause of the fire is ongoing.

Like I said, he was a good man.” Wolownik said Klein often talked about his family – a family he tried to stay as close to as he could. “Bob loved his family,” Wolownik said. “He always talked about his children and how he felt about being a grandfather. He had so many friends. He often said if friends were the stock exchange and it crashed, he would be bankrupt.” Wolownik said Klein loved the Philadelphia Eagles and Flyers. “He would argue for the Eagles until the cows came home,” she said. “He was as loyal to the Eagles as he was to his family and friends.” Wolownik said she has been at REACH, a drop-in center for homeless people, for 10 years. At REACH, the clients can take a shower, have breakfast, get their mail, use a telephone and get help to schedule appointments for health care or employment. REACH is scheduled to close July 1

About 50 people attended Klein’s service, many of them wiping away tears as they recalled their time with their friend. “I called him Bobby when he was a good boy,” Wolownik said as the gathering laughed. “And he was Bob the See KLEIN, Page 4A

Class aims to avert another juvenile justice crisis State Bar covering tuition of course to be held in Mechanicsburg and simulcast elsewhere, including W-B. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

More than 800 lawyers across Pennsylvania are expected to attend a daylong training course next week that highlights safeguards to prevent a repeat of Luzerne County’s juvenile justice scandal. “The tragic failure of the Luzerne County court system was a wake-up call that we, as lawyers, must be vigi-

lant about the conduct of others within the legal community,” Pennsylvania Bar Association President Matthew J. Creme said in a media release. The educational session will remind lawyers of the checks and balances in place “to ensure a fair and unbiased justice system for those entering our courts,” Creme said. The Interbranch Commission on Juvenile Justice, which investigated the county juvenile justice scandal, issued a final report last year that faulted lawyers and prosecutors who saw problems in Luzerne County’s court system

but did not speak up. The commission was created by state legislators, with the support of the governor and state Supreme Court, to investigate circumstances that led to corruption in Luzerne County’s juvenile court system. A state bar association task force examined the commission’s report and came up with a series of recommendations that formed the basis of the daylong, tuition-free course, which is called “Errant Judges and Lawyers: What to Do?” The bar association recommendaSee COURSE, Page 14A

Tyler Memorial Hospital has been operating under a water boil advisory since it received notification from the state Department of Environmental Protection on Tuesday that the well supplying the hospital’s water may have been contaminated with E. coli bacteria. The hospital said well water is treated to remove bacteria before it reaches the hospital for use, and water samples taken inside the hospital were negative for E. coli. There is no indication any water contaminated with E. coli was distributed within the hospital, the hospital said in a release. Following practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, all drinking fountains, coffee makers, ice makers, sinks and showers at the hospital have been closed and bottled water is being used for drinking and food preparation. Hospital caregivers are using alternative sanitation practices recommended by the CDC for hand-hygiene and for bathing patients. These practices will continue until the hospital and DEP are completely confident that water distributed within the hospital is safe for use, the hospital said. PLAINS TWP.

Heaviest NATO strikes hit Libya

On a day of at least 40 attacks from the air, Gadhafi in a TV address vows that he’ll never surrender. By DIAA HADID Associated Press

The unauthorized artwork is drawing a mass following, and even city officials who say she must go say they too have been taken by her.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi stood defiant Tuesday in the face of the heaviest and most punishing NATO airstrikes yet — at least 40 thunderous daylight attacks that sent plumes of smoke billowing above the Libyan leader’s central Tripoli compound. In late afternoon and as the strikes continued, Libyan state television broadcast an audio address from Gadhafi, who denounced NATO and the rebels challenging his rule. He vowed never to surrender. “We will not kneel!” he shouted. Alliance officials have warned for days they were increasing the scope and

intensity of their air campaign to oust Gadhafi after more than 40 years in power. NATO is backing the rebel insurgency, which has seized swaths of eastern Libya and pockets in the regime’s stronghold in the west since it began in February, inspired by uprisings elsewhere in the Arab world. About 6,850 people, nearly all of them Libyans, have streamed across the border from Libya to Tunisia since Monday to flee the NATO raids as well as fighting between the rebels and government forces, according to the Tunisian Defense Ministry. It couldn’t be confirmed whether Gadhafi’s approximately 10-minute speech was a live phone call or an audio recording, but it appeared to take state television by surprise. The sound was hastily adjusted to make it louder “We will not surrender: we only have one choice — to the end! Death, victory, it does not matter, we are not surrender-

A Libyan boy salutes as he and others rally next to Moammar Gadhafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound, a regular target of NATO airstrikes, in Tripoli, Libya. Gadhafi has vowed to fight to the death in a surprise speech during the heaviest day of NATO shelling in the capital Tripoli. AP PHOTO

ing!” Gadhafi said. Highlighting his anger, he called the rebels “bastards.” As he spoke, reporters in Tripoli heard the whooshing sound of low-flying military craft again, followed by several explosions. Pro-Gadhafi loyalists also fired celebratory gunfire in the air.

Gadhafi was last seen in a brief appearance on state television in late May. He has mostly been in hiding since NATO strikes in April targeted one of his homes. Libyan officials said one of his sons, Saif al-Arab, and three of his grandchildren were killed in that strike.

SANAA, YEMEN

President badly injured

SANAA, Yemen — President Ali Abdullah Saleh was burned over 40 percent of his body and suffered bleeding in the brain from last weekend’s attack on his palace, U.S. officials said Tuesday, indicating his wounds were worse than initially reported. The revelation casts doubts on a quick return to Yemen and spell a deepening power vacuum. In the wake of Saleh’s evacuation to Saudi Arabia for treatment, Yemen’s violence escalated, with government troops battling Islamic militants and opposition tribesmen in two southern cities on Tuesday. The military said it killed 30 militants who were among a group that took over the city of Zinjibar last week amid the country’s turmoil. TOKYO

Hmmm, cicada ice cream A public health official in central Missouri has asked an ice cream shop to cool it with the cicada ice cream, even though customers apparently can’t get enough of it. Sparky’s Homemade Ice Cream in Columbia, Mo., sold out of its only batch of the insect-filled dessert within hours of its June 1 debut. Employees collected the cicadas in their backyards and removed most of the dead bugs’ wings. They then boiled the bountiful bugs and covered them in brown sugar and milk chocolate. The base ice cream is brown sugar and butter flavor. Gerry Worley, an environmental health chief with the Columbia County Department of Public Health, says he has advised against their use as an ingredient.

Obama: Panic hurts economy

Mutiny may be behind Syria attacks

Government says 120 troops and police died after “armed groups” attacked in Jisr al-Shughour.

U.S. not at risk of new recession, president says, calling path to recovery uneven.

WASHINGTON — With few options at hand and his poll numbers sagging, President Barack Obama expressed concern Tuesday about the sudden slowdown in the economy but said he is not worried about a second recession and the nation should “not panic.” The president spoke about the new economic trouble in detail for the first time since a report late last week showed job growth had slowed sharply in May. He tried to reassure Americans worried about high unemployment and expensive gas that the nation is on a slow, if not steady, path to recovery. “I am concerned about the fact that the recovery that we’re on is not producing jobs as quickly as I want it to happen,” Obama said at an appearance with

GOP chairman demands Weiner resign By ANDREW MIGA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Republican Party chairman said Tuesday that Rep. Anthony Weiner should resign after admitting to sexually charged online relationships with several women and lying about his misdeeds. The New York congressman seemed increasingly isolated from even his fellow Democrats Tuesday, as House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi formally requested a House ethics probe and the Senate’s top Democrat declined to publicly defend

him. Reince Priebus said in a statement that either Pelosi and Democratic chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz believe that members of Congress are held to a Weiner different standard, or they believe the congressman’s actions demand his departure from the House. The Democratic National Committee did not have an immediate comment. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid

delivered a rebuff to Weiner, a clear sign of the frustrations fellow Democrats have with a scandal they want to see over as soon as possible. “I wish there was some way I could defend him, but I can’t,” Reid said. Asked what he would say if Weiner called him for advice, Reid said “call somebody else.” The National Republican Congressional Committee issued press releases calling on more than a dozen House Democrats to return campaign contributions from Weiner.

BEIRUT — Mutinous Syrian soldiers joined forces with protesters after days of crackdowns in a tense northern region, apparently killing dozens of officers and security guards, residents and activists said Tuesday. The details of what happened in Jisr al-Shughour remain murky, but if confirmed the mutiny would be an extraordinary crack in the regime, which sees its 40-year grip on the country eroded weekly by thousands of protesters calling for the ouster of President Bashar Assad. The government said 120 troops and police died after “armed groups” attacked in Jisr al-Shughour, but has not explained how the heavily armed military could suffer such an enormous loss of life. Communications to the area are spotty, foreign journalists have been expelled, and many people reached by phone are too afraid to talk. The town drew the most recent assault by Syria’s military, whose nationwide crackdown on the revolt against Assad has left more than 1,300 Syrians dead, activists say. A resident said tensions began last week with snipers and security forces firing repeatedly on peaceful protests and then funerals, killing around 30 people.

Japan’s government has doubled the estimate of how much radiation leaked from a tsunami-hit nuclear plant and says the damage to the reactors was greater than previously thought. The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency says in a report that nuclear fuel inside three reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant probably melted through not only the reactor cores but also through the inner containment vessels. The report said twice as much radiation may have been released into the air as earlier thought. That would be one-fifth of the amount released at Chernobyl instead of the earlier estimate of one-tenth. NISA said its analysis used a different method than had been employed by the plant’s operator last month and is believed to “better reflect reality.” Japan admitted Tuesday it was unprepared for a severe nuclear accident like the tsunami-caused Fukushima disaster.

GOP jobless aid measure advances in Pa. Changes OK’d that may keep 45,000 on benefits list. Dems: Amendments would lower aid.

By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — More than 200 people rallied in the Pennsylvania Capitol for tougher environmental protection — if not an outright ban — on natural gas drilling as pressure builds on state lawmakers to approve a tax on the booming industry. Tuesday’s rally comes on the heels of two more Republican lawmakers in the GOP-controlled Legislature announcing they’re sponsoring bills to impose a tax or fee on Marcellus Shale gas extraction. After the rally, filmmaker Josh Fox and a woman who believes her well water in northern Pennsylvania was poisoned by nearby drilling unsuccessfully sought a meeting with Gov. Tom Corbett. The Republican governor opposes a drilling tax, but Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati says there’s a chance that such a bill will get to Corbett’s desk this month.

By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG — A bill that would make a technical change to state law and prevent 45,000 people from being kicked off jobless benefits later this week was pushed through a state House committee Tuesday, but Democrats said Republican amendments would unfairly cut workers’ benefits. The House Labor and Industry Committee voted along party lines to amend and then approve the bill that previously passed the Senate unanimously. The amendments would increase how much severance pay

counts against unemployment compensation and further define which actions constitute willful misconduct that prevents workers from collecting benefits. Another amendment, which would exempt severance benefits in existing labor contracts from the changes, passed unanimously. Committee Chairman Ron Miller, R-York, said the bill will make the unemployment system slightly more affordable, but leaves for a future debate the heavy lifting to make it solvent. “It’s a start, and it sets the table to try and address solvency as we go into the fall,” Miller said. The ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Bill Keller of Philadelphia, objected to using the leverage of the potential

early loss of benefits — another 90,000 are at risk through year’s end — to force broader changes in the system. “We’re trying to do unemployment compensation reform in a hurry, and you can’t do that stuff in a hurry,” he said. It wasn’t immediately clear how soon a bill would need to pass the House and Senate and be signed by Gov. Tom Corbett in order to avoid having the 45,000 workers kicked off the rolls for federally funded emergency benefits. A recipient would then need to reapply for benefits, a potential bureaucratic problem. The deadline arose because the state’s jobless rate has improved steadily in recent months. Miller said the full House will take up the bill early next week,

Bath salt sales now prohibited in Lock Haven The Associated Press

LOCK HAVEN — A central Pennsylvania city is the latest municipality to ban the sale of synthetic drugs known as “bath salts.” The Lock Haven City Council on Monday night passed the ban that goes into effect June 26. The ordinance also includes a ban on synthetic marijuana. The synthetic drugs often packaged as bath salts or incense can cause extreme paranoia and hallucinations. They have been linked to violence nationwide. Emergency injunctions against the sale of such substances have already been issued in five Pennsylvania counties. Other communities, especially in northeastern Pennsylvania, have also banned the drugs after several high-profile crimes. The Express of Lock Haven reported that the city council there has said the action was designed to send a message to lawmakers in Harrisburg to take statewide action.

but the bill’s Senate sponsor, Sen. John Gordner, R-Columbia, said the deadline for enactment was about a week away. A state Labor and Industry Department official at the committee hearing said passage next week should not disrupt benefits. “There’s a certain amount of leeway — I believe it’s around Wednesday of next week, but much beyond that and basically you need to send the 45,000 off the rolls,” Gordner said. Gordner and Miller agreed that the bill, as amended Tuesday, represented a 90 percent agreement between the House and Senate Republican majorities. The big sticking points were language added by Miller to define what constitutes voluntary quitting or willful misconduct, for which employees are ineligi-

ble for jobless benefits. Gordner said those terms have been defined by decades of legal precedent that should not be overridden without careful deliberation. He said another change Miller made was acceptable, to reduce to $11,000 the amount of severance pay that does not count against benefits. The figure in Gordner’s bill was $22,000. The bill also requires people to actively look for work while collecting benefits. House Republicans said their bill would move the system $143 million closer to solvency, but the overall problem, what the state owes the federal government, is about $3.7 billion. “We do need to do something with solvency,” Gordner said. “The question is, can we do it with a short amount of time?”

No appeal for ruling nixing cellphone ban The Associated Press

ALLENTOWN — Officials in Allentown have opted not to appeal a judge’s ruling overturning its local ban on the use of hand-held cellphones by drivers. A Lehigh County judge overturned the city’s cellphone ban last month. Mayor Ed Pawlowski tells The Morning Call of Allentown that there was no guarantee the city would prevail and an appeal would be costly. A failed appeal could have also resulted in a statewide precedent that would have affected similar bans in Philadelphia, Wilkes-Barre, Harrisburg and Erie. Lehigh County Judge James Anthony tossed the ban on May 4, saying only the state could enact such a ban. Allentown officials say it’s now up to state lawmakers to enact a ban for the entire state.

William Evan ‘Raggs’ Walters III

June 6, 2011

illiam “Billy” E. Walters III, 80, of Alamo, Calif., passed away W Friday, May 13, 2011, at his home

surrounded by friends and loved ones. Bill was born and raised in Hanover Township and was a son of William Evan Walters Jr. He was a player in the baseball minor leagues and principal of Hanover Green School in Wilkes-Barre, and Carolina Rebecca Bryan Walters, art school teacher with the Hanover Township school district. Bill graduated from Hanover High School, class of 1948, and he then enrolled in the U.S. Navy in 1949 where he was a cook on several mine sweepers including the USS Albatross; he remembers seeing Harry Truman in one of his chow lines, even recalling the hamburger platter Truman ate. He went to Mansfield State College, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in education in 1957. He taught in the Troy, Pa., school system where he met and married his first wife, Beverly Bradley (Walters). He left teaching to work for the Tremco Manufacturing Co. In 1963, he joined the Oneida Silver Co. where he retired at age 65 as the West Coast National Representative. Bill was an avid outdoorsman and a model shipbuilder. He learned to fish from his great Uncle Conrad Bush at Lake Nuangola, and fishing followed him throughout his life. His retirement career at Tim Berg’s Lodge was a result of his passion for fishing in Alaska. His niece, Christine Hibbard, recalls that most of his pictures show him with a big fish, from Key West to Alaska. Bill enjoyed hunting as well and spent many an afternoon at The Martinez Gun Club with his buddies and his beloved dog, Zippy. He lived in Northern California most of his adult life, first in Walnut Creek, then Danville and Alamo. Bill met his second wife, Dolores Johnson (Walters), in Danville in the mid 1970s. They were married in 1977 and remained so until his passing. They lived in the same Alamo home since 1979 in which many of us shared an abundance of good times. He was a Shriner and was

known for his parade character, Raggs the hobo clown. Bill was also an active member of The San Ramon Valley United Methodist Church in Alamo, Calif. He was always there for all of us, and we made sure we returned the favor. He no longer has to wait for fishing, elk or pheasant season, and we’re sure he’s making people laugh, just as he did for years. I’m sure everyone has more than one story about Bill’s amazing character on one hunting excursion or another adventure, or even just a trip down the road for a good old cup of Starbucks. Bill was preceded in death, in addition to his father, by his mother, Carolina Rebecca Bryan Walters; and his sister, Karen Hibbard MacLean. He is survived by his wife Dolores (Dee); daughters, Portia Clapper (Kevin) of Florida and Maren Walters of New York State; step-sons, Mark Johnson (Joni), Douglas Johnson (Carol), and Paul Anthony; and step-daughters, Nancy Louv (Michael) and Dianne Johnson, all of California; as well as several nieces and grandchildren; and one greatgrandchild. A Memorial Service Celebrating his Life was held June 3, 2011, in Alamo, Calif. There will be a Committal Service held at 11 a.m. Friday, June 17, 2011, in the Oaklawn Cemetery Chapel, 1250 S. Main St., Hanover Township. Memorial contributions can be made to the Shriners Hospitals for Children, International Headquarters, 2900 Rocky Point Drive, Tampa, FL 33607.

Hearings on gas issues lie ahead

Solicitor says pipeline projects will need zoning OK before they can proceed. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – More zoning hearings related to natural gas development could be in store for the township, officials stated at a meeting Tuesday evening. Solicitor Thomas Brennan said pipeline projects will now need zoning approval from the township prior to construction. Two companies, Chief Gathering LLC and Williams Field Services LLC, have submitted plans to build natural gas pipelines to tap into the Williamsowned Transco interstate pipeline, which runs perpendicular to Hildebrant Road near the Dallas School District campus. Supervisors announced the township received an Act 14 notification on May 19 on behalf of Chief for its application to apply for a state Department of Environmental Protection permit related to its approximately 30-mile Wyoming County Natural Gas Pipeline. Brennan said the township’s planning consultant, Jack W H AT ’ S Varaly, reNEXT viewed the land use infor- The next mation provid- supervisors’ ed by Chief ’s meeting will be held at 7:30 engineering p.m. June 21 in firm for the the municipal permit applica- building. tion and made note of “inaccurate and/or undocumented responses.” Kozick wrote a letter to the DEP addressing various issues, including zoning approval will be required for any use of land within the township. No zoning applications have been received from Chief for the pipeline project as of Tuesday. “It was always in the zoning ordinance, but we’ve never had anything of this nature within the township,” said Kozick. He also wrote Chief has not undertaken any actions to address community concerns about the project. Brennan said the newness of the natural gas developments within the township has led to re-examining the current zoning ordinance. “Right now our position is the pipeline will need zoning approval, but it’s being contested,” he said. Chief is currently awaiting zoning approval for its proposed metering station to be located about 1,300 feet from the Dallas schools. A fifth continuation hearing has been scheduled for June 16. Williams began its presentation of its 33-mile Springville Gathering Line project to the township’s planning commission last month. The company had to withdraw its land development and subdivision plans in April for a proposed metering station to be located off Hildebrandt Road because land development and subdivision approval could not be granted prior to zoning approval. Kozick said it is unknown what the company will do at the next scheduled planning commission meeting set for June 14.

WILKES-BARRE – A mortgage foreclosure program implemented in Luzerne County last year has had a success rate significantly higher than the statewide average, a Luzerne County judge said. The mortgage foreclosure program, which began last fall, was started in an attempt to help people facing foreclosure try to negotiate a payment agreement with

Cosgrove encouraged the court to create the program and helped design it, said the county program has had a success rate of 81.5 percent in just the first six months, compared to the statewide rate of 20 percent in similar programs. “It’s a staggering number,” Wetzel said of the county’s success rate. That number reflects on the current 61 cases active or resolved in Luzerne County. Of that number, 39 are ongoing and 22 have been resolved.

how the program functions locally – with those facing foreclosure meeting face-to-face with lenders and attorneys to work together toward a solution. There is a pool of 20 local attorneys with bankruptcy and real estate expertise who work pro bono on each case. As the program went on, Wetzel said, mainly three or four attorneys continued to work extensively for the program. “Those attorneys take a financial hit each time they appear for a mediation,” Wetzel said.

Wetzel said the attorneys’ devotion to the program makes it a success, and he feels it would be beneficial for others facing foreclosure in Luzerne County to know the program exists. “Most people are in this situation because of losing their job,” he said.

WILKES-BARRE – After hearing seven days of testimony, a Luzerne County judge said he will decide “as rapidly as possible” whether two area school districts will get their share of millions of dollars in a 3-year-old civil lawsuit. Judge Lewis Wetzel presided over a non-jury trial involving the Dallas and Pittston Area school districts against the Northeastern Pennsylvania School Districts Health Trust seeking an undetermined portion of an $18 million surplus the schools say they paid into the trust, after they withdrew from the program. Court-mandated accounting shows the two districts paid $4.3 million more into the trust than they received in benefit payments or owed for administrative overhead.

Attorneys presented the last of their witnesses Tuesday morning before presenting closing arguments. Howard Levinson, an attorney for the districts, said in his closing argument there was never an agreement about withholding the $18 million surplus. He said members of the trust believed they would be paid back after withdrawing from the program, and that the districts are entitled to the money. Levinson argued there were certain circumstances that called for money to be repaid, and that those circumstances were protective measures if members of the trust believed they could get better health care and contracts elsewhere. If awarded the money, the districts would put it into a “constructive trust” and use it solely to pay health care costs of district employees, as it was originally intended, according to court papers. Robert Mariani, an attorney for the health trust, said in his clos-

ing argument that the districts’ lawsuit is an attempt at a “money grab” by the districts because they “knew what they agreed to.” “In our opinion …” Mariani said, “…it’s a disgrace.” Mariani argued no one forced the two districts out of the trust and it was clear in both testimony and evidence, including an Internal Revenue Service report, that there was no agreement to the distribution of the surplus money. “They are no longer part of the trust. That money is used for people in the trust,” Mariani said. “The surplus stays in the trust. The trustees agreed to that.” According to court papers, the districts withdrew from the trust in 2007, citing that it had built a hefty surplus by charging more than necessary for premiums. The districts then sought and ultimately sued for what they claim is their share of the surplus. The trust, formed in 1999, is a consortium of 13 area districts formed in an attempt to lower health insurance costs.

MEETINGS Foreclosures addressed KINGSTON – Municipal Administrator Paul Keating announced at Monday’s council meeting that he was cooperating with Solicitor Henry Mattern in attempts to deal with the property conditions of houses that are in the midst of foreclosure and are not receiving proper care. Keating noted that although there are relatively few of these types of properties within the borough, they are still a concern, “because so many of our residents do take good care of their homes.” Mattern explained that difficulties arise in contacting the owners of the properties in the foreclosure process as they are often banks located out of the area. Public works department workers currently cut high grass and weeds. They have also, on occasion, removed excess garbage that was left on the premises when the residents relocated. Keating, however, does not want municipal resources applied to private property problems and is hoping to have some suggestions for resolution for the borough’s upcoming work session. Council also recognized Wyoming Seminary’s Mock Trial Team, which took first place in the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Statewide Mock Trial competition. This led to the team representing the state in the National High School Mock Trial Competition, held May 5 through 7 in Phoenix, Ariz. Seminary placed sixth out of the 48 teams in the national competition. Mayor James Haggerty presented team members and coaches with a proclamation declaring June 13 as Wyoming Seminary Mock Trial Team Day in the municipality. Officials also reminded residents that the old $1.75 garbage stickers have been invalid since the price was increased to $2 in January. Bags featuring the outdated stickers will no longer be picked up. Residents who do

have unused outdated stickers can go to the municipal building to redeem the unused stickers and pay the 25-cent difference on each sticker. B. Garret Rogan Road problems discussed BEAR CREEK TWP. – A road that isn’t even in the township was on the minds of some Bear Creek Township residents at Monday’s supervisors meeting. Several residents of Weiss Road asked the supervisors to do something about the drainage on the road, which they said is deteriorating because of excess water. One resident asked that the township make good on promises to take care of the drains, possibly by having the fire company blast water through them to clear blockages. “Weiss Road is our problem child,” said Supervisor Chairman Gary Zingaretti, noting that while the residents’ property is in Bear Creek Township, the road itself is part of Dennison Township. Zingaretti said Bear Creek has agreed to limited road maintenance, such as pothole patching, but engineers have estimated that proper repairs on Weiss Road would cost in excess of $400,000. “Even if Dennison (Township) gave up the road to Bear Creek, we don’t have the $400,000 to repair it,” he said. While he declined to discuss too much because the matter is still under discussion between the two townships, Zingaretti said Bear Creek is at work on a short term solution while a longer term answer to the ongoing problem is sought. Solicitor William Vinsko also updated the supervisors on regulations regarding blighted properties and on an airport overlay zone ordinance requested by the state Transportation Department. Vinsko said the supervisors will need to revise existing ordinances to incorporate new conservatory laws, which he said give “more teeth” to the zoning officer and allow more latitude for the township to deal with blighted properties. Supervisors will also be asked to consider an ordinance that

would require anyone building a structure of a certain height to notify the Federal Aviation Administration and PennDOT’s Bureau of Aviation, Vinsko said. The airport overlay zoning ordinance is being requested because the township is on an approach route to the WilkesBarre/Scranton International Airport, Vinsko said, and would affect the construction of taller structures like cell phone towers and windmills. In other business, the board: • Approved a reverse subdivision to allow the Stchur Estate to sell a parcel of land on Bald Mountain Road. The land is divided by a PennDOT-owned road, and the estate sought to split the property to sell 1.6 acres on one side of the road to an adjoining property owner, while selling the remaining larger parcel in a separate sale. • Approved a new expense reimbursement policy that requires all township employees, supervisors and anyone designated for official business by the township to meet certain requirements for reimbursement of authorized expenses. Janine Ungvarsky Flood project woes heard SWOYERSVILLE – Borough officials fielded a complaint from a resident Monday night about an ongoing flood project along Wade Run Creek. The stream improvement project that had been scheduled for completion in November 2010 seems to be stalled due to weather-related issues and, in the meantime, residents said they have been inconvenienced and cannot enjoy the full value of their properties. “It is seemingly impossible to get answers to our questions in regard to this project,” said Bill Hooper, indicating that he had contacted the state Department of Environmental Protection; Borton Lawson, which is the firm hired to execute the project; and finally, council, without any answers in regard to the timeline of the project itself or any indication of anticipated long-term success of the project. He said he was concerned about street water upon completion of the project.

Council President Ronald Alunni reiterated the project was out of the borough’s hands and said Hooper should contact Borton Lawson directly. When Hooper indicated he had tried that to no avail, officials stated the borough contact Borton Lawson to obtain more information about the project. In another matter, resident Frank Piazza addressed council about dumping near the Slocum Street playground. “I’ve personally observed people attempting to dump hedges and broken cement pieces there,” said Piazza. “Both times, I was able to stop them, reminding them that it is a play area and not a dumping ground.” Council agreed to put “no dumping” signs up at the site and also encouraged residents to contact the police if such dumping was observed. Bruce Lykon brought up a problem of unleashed dogs in the area. “I have been guilty of this myself,” said Lykon, “but, at this time I think that we should pass a law against unleashed dogs.” He added he had recently had an encounter with a pit bull. Solicitor Joe Yeager indicated a state law existed that was applicable in regard to unleashed dogs as well. Council told residents to contact police if they observed unleashed or unattended dogs in the borough. Geri Gibbons Supervisors are criticized DORRANCE TWP. – Township supervisors came under criticism Monday night from three men who complained that a political clique is strangling the township, causing an inaction that fails to address real issues. After the regular monthly meeting Joe Chalawick, Blue Ridge Trail resident, who during the meeting complained about a sign at J&L Market, said he’s “sick and tired” of preferential treatment extended to some people by the supervisors. “We need the people to wake up and come out to these meet-

ings and learn what is going on,” he said. Chalawick was invited to meet with township officials in what was described as a face-to-face session that is open to the general public, but he declined. Supervisor Chairman Ray Engler said that over the course of the past two years, the supervisors have provided an opportunity for Chalawick to hold discussions with supervisors, but Chalawick chooses instead to be a vocal critic at the meetings. Engler said letters have been written to Chalawick as well as two others, Rich Smith and Kevin Casey, in an attempt to resolve lingering issues they raised at the meeting. During the public comment phase, Smith, of St. Mary’s Road, expressed concerns about water runoff from the township recycling shed and its parking lot onto his property. He previously cited these same issues in April. He said the problem continues without any action on the part of supervisors and its maintenance staff. Smith also asked about a sign permit for J&L Market, but was cut short by Solicitor James Schneider, who stated it was not a question-andanswer period. Casey, of Small Mountain Road, asked about a petition his lawyer, William Higgs, filed with the supervisors about the proposed expansion of the Pennsy Supply Quarry, but he was told the matter is being reviewed legally. Casey, who video records the meetings, wants Pennsy to cease and desist, but Engler said that’s not something the supervisors can accomplish. since the matter is in the hands of the court and the state Department of Environmental Protection. DEP has yet to authorize permits for the quarry. Another resident, Rick Walling, of Blue Ridge Trail, said a hazardous traffic condition is prevalent because of ATV and dirt bike riders who speed unrestricted around the corner of St. Mary’s Road and Blue Ridge Trail. “I’m going to predict that a bad accident is going to happen unless you supervisors do some-

thing,” he said. Dorrance doesn’t have a police force; it relies upon state police at Hazleton for investigations and patrol. Walling also complained about surface water runoff from drainage ditches on St. Mary’s Road. It was stated that because of the July 4th holiday, the next regular meeting has been scheduled on Monday, July 11. Tom Huntington Paving contract is awarded FAIRVIEW TWP. – Supervisors agreed to accept the base bid of $88,640 from Barletta Material Inc. for the paving project on Garden Avenue from Route 309 to Brook Lane. Barletta Material Inc. had the lowest of three bids submitted. The township police department will see several fresh faces soon. The board accepted the official resignation of officer Anthony DeCusatis and approved a motion to hire two new parttime officers, Aaron Fromm and Raymond Suda Jr., both at $15 per hour. In addition to the new officers, the board approved the purchase of a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria police cruiser at a cost of $25,223 from Warnock Ford, Morristown, N.J., under the Pennsylvania Department of General Services’ COPSTARS cooperative purchasing program. The board also approved the hiring of eight workers for the summer park program at Memorial Park: Nicole Spaide, park director, at $10.50 per hour; Kristen Zearfoss, $8.40 an hour; David Waskie, $8.40; Casse Hogan, $8.15; Kailey Roberts, $8.15; AnnMarie Klie, $8.15; Amanda Evans, $8.40, and Seth Loftus-Vergari, $7.50.In other business, the board thanked Alex Kline, Matthew Taleroski and Andrew Dean for planting flowers in front of the township building and Mountain Top sign. The three are students at Fairview Elementary and the work was done as Enviro-Day projects. Steffen Lizza

Former Lackawanna County Commissioner Robert Cordaro, right, along with current Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak, not in picture, are on trial on a 41-count indictment that charges them with multiple counts of racketeering, bribery, extortion, money laundering, honest services fraud and other offenses. Testimony will resume at 9:30 a.m. today in federal court in Scranton.

vices, including the cleanup of tons of pigeon droppings from the Lackawanna County Courthouse roof, as a “professional service,” which allowed the contracts to be awarded without competitive bidding. Alicon Environmental, the business hired to clean up the pigeon dung, is among eight companies that federal prosecutors allege paid bribes to Cordaro and Munchak in order to secure contracts with the county during their tenure as majority commissioners from 2004 to 2008. Washo was one of five witnesses who testified Tuesday at Munchak and Cordaro’s trial on a 41count indictment that charges them with multiple counts of racketeering, bribery, extortion, money laundering, honest services fraud and other offenses. Washo served as a minority commissioner from 2005 until 2007, when he and fellow Democrat Corey O’Brien took control as the majority. Since then, Washo said, he and O’Brien have taken steps to increase public accountability of the office. “I knew commissioners had a lot of power, but I had no idea until I took the seat of the enormity of that power – power that is not matched by accountability,” Washo said under questioning by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lorna Graham. That was particularly so under

the Cordaro and Munchak regime, he said. The men essentially cut him out of all decisions, particularly the awarding of contracts, he said. Washo said he opposed the Alicon contract because he questioned the cost and believed it should have been bid out, instead of being awarded as a professional service. At the time the contract was awarded, $1.8 million had already been expended on the cleanup, he said. “I couldn’t imagine how that cost was justified,” Washo said. He said he also vehemently opposed a contract awarded to Charles Costanzo to administer the county’s workers’ compensation fund. “Hundreds of thousands of dollars expended on a program were going directly to the person administering the program,” Washo said. “The county had paid $90,000 prior to this. This was

$180,000, plus there were other bonuses.” Federal prosecutors contend Munchak, who remains a commissioner, and Cordaro, who was booted from office in the 2007 election, had ulterior motives in awarding those two contracts and others that are the basis of the indictment. The government alleges Alicon, through an intermediary, paid Cordaro $20,000 for its contract and that Costanzo, who was convicted in 2009 of stealing more than $600,000 from the workers��� compensation fund, also paid Cordaro several thousand dollars. Questioned by Munchak’s attorney, Christopher Powell, Washo acknowledged that some of the projects – including the pigeon dung removal – were necessary. Powell and Cordaro’s attorneys, William Costopoulos and Jerry

Johnson, have portrayed their clients as concerned public servants whose sole motives in taking on the contracts was to improve the county. Costopoulos repeatedly objected to Washo’s testimony, questioning its relevancy. U.S. District Judge A.

BRIDGEVIEW Continued from Page 1A

Employees notified Employees were informed Tuesday the center is closing, Hopkins said. The center provided inpatient services to children and young adults between the ages of 12 and 18 with multiple psychiatric diagnoses, who struggled in traditional school settings or at home, who have suffered traumatic experiences, who have difficulty expressing themselves or who have experimented with drugs and alcohol. It aimed to keep children close to home during treatment with the goal of reintegrating patients into a family setting. Hopkins said the center represented only a fraction of the services provided by his organization.

S. JOHN WILKIN/THE TIMES LEADER

BridgeView, a treatment center in Wilkes-Barre for children with severe mental health issues, will close July 7.

“The number of kids that we serve in the course of a year is 4,000; the number of kids that we served at BridgeView is 50,” he said, adding “at the same time it’s an important level of care.” But Joe DeVizia, Luzerne County Human Services director, called the closing of the center “a loss to the community.” “I believe that the state has taken a posture to try to reduce the treatments in (residential treatment facilities); but, in the meantime, I really believe that a program like this is needed,” he said. “I know they were losing money and it’s hard to say please stay open, but I do think it’s going to be important for us to have some provider in our area that has a program like this,” he continued. “Otherwise, kids are going to be placed further from their home.” Hopkins said the nearest comparable centers are EIHAB Human Services at the former St. Michael’s School in Tunkhannock and Kidspeace in Allentown. The Shawnee Academy and The Beacon School in Shawnee-on-Delaware, Monroe County, closed

Three-story building Hopkins said Children’s Service Centerhasnotdecidedwhatitwill do with the three-story building in the shadow of the South Street Bridge that houses the facility. “We will now begin exploring alternative uses for the facility including the possibility of selling the property,” he said. Hopkins said the decision to close the center was financial, and not related to problem areas identified by the state Department of Public Welfare and the center’s insurance carrier in April. Officials from the department and Community Care Behavior Health Organization, the insurer, visited the facility in April after two teenage girls ran away from the facility Feb. 21and were subsequently sexually assaulted by a man who picked them up off the street. Community Care Behavior Health Organization in April asked BridgeView to temporarily suspend admission to the center while corrective action was taken.

centers three years ago, and slashed them by 50 percent last year. There currently are 14 children living at the center, Hopkins said, and nine of them have discharge plans effective prior to July 1. The remaining five will be placed in foster care, Hopkins said. The center has a capacity for 51 patients and has 54 full- and parttime employees. Hopkins said in a release that Children’s Service Center “explored every available option to try and keep BridgeView open in spite of the difficult climate that exists in providing this needed service.” “We will do everything we can to find positions for staff affected by this decision within our current continuum of services or with other child welfare organizations located in the area,” he added.

OTHER OPINION: GOP RACE

Someone, anyone besides Santorum

P

ENNSYLVANIA’S own Rick Santorum is running for president. No kidding. He announced it Monday in Somerset County. We can’t imagine the thought process that leads a person to think he can be president when, after several months of campaigning, he has driven his poll numbers up to 2 percent, deadlast among the circus that is the Republican presidential race. (Santorum even trails “Someone else,” who registers 3 percent.) Santorum has another problem, too. When he compared gay marriage to “man on dog” sex,

the senator so raised the ire of some gays, they turned his last name into a slang word for something that we can’t mention in this newspaper. Dear People of the United States: We are sorry about this. We thought we had done our part. When Santorum ran for a third term as U.S. senator among the people who know him best, he lost by an astonishing 17 points. We don’t like him; we really don’t like him. We assumed he would get the message. Philadelphia Daily News

Voter ID law would hamper, rather than help, process THE QUESTION “Who should vote?” has been a recurrent one throughout American history, and since 1776, it’s been most frequently answered “As many citizens as possible,” which meant extending the franchise to include more people. At the time of the Declaration of Independence, only white males who were at least 21 years of age and had property or wealth of a specified value could vote. By 2000, any citizen, regardless of race or gender or financial circumstances, at least 18 years old could vote. The states, which establish nearly all voting criteria, continue to bar convicted felons and the mentally challenged from the polling booth. More recently, however, a number of states have adopted rules that require citizens to present a valid photo identification card (e.g. a driver’s license, passport, etc.) to register to vote and/or to cast a ballot. Twelve states currently require a photo ID to vote and 13 more, including Pennsylvania, have bills pending in their legislatures. The principal reason offered by the bills’ sponsors, predominantly Republicans, is to protect the election process from fraudulent voting. But an unintended consequence of more stringent requirements to register and vote might be to limit access to the franchise. Our research on the expansion of the franchise revealed periods during the 19th and early 20th centuries when both political parties bought votes, had the dead cast ballots and manipulated vote counts in order to win elections. Public outrage over such practices brought reforms, such as the Australian or secret ballot, and imposed significant punishments on those caught fraudulently voting, which has essentially eliminated the practice.

MAIL BAG

KYLE L. KREIDER AND THOMAS J. BALDINO Proponents of voter ID laws argue, however, that actual and perceived voter fraud continues and suggest that identification is needed prior to voting in order to improve the integrity of elections. However, studies consistently indicate that fears of vote fraud are grossly exaggerated and perceptions of vote fraud have no impact on the likelihood of voting. In 2007, a Brennan Center for Justice Report concluded that there are only a “handful of substantiated claims of individual ineligible voters attempting to defraud the election system.” For example, the center investigated the widespread allegations of voter fraud that plagued Missouri in the 2000 election. However, of the 2.3 million votes cast there, only six substantiated instances of ineligible voters were uncovered. Of the six, four were double voters, which could not have been prevented through a voter ID requirement. In addition to the dearth of evidence regarding actual voter fraud, Stephen Ansolabehere and Nathaniel Persily published a study in 2010 demonstrating that voters in states with voter ID laws “are no less likely to perceive fraud than those not subject to an ID requirement.” The penalty for voter fraud in federal elections is five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. In short, the costs of committing voter fraud are exceedingly greater than the marginal benefit of adding only one more vote for a candidate.

Kyle L. Kreider and Thomas J. Baldino teach political science at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre and are the authors of “Of the People, By the People, For the People: A Documentary Record of Voting Rights and Electoral Reform” and “U.S. Election Campaigns: A Documentary History,” both with Greenwood Press.

LETTERS FROM READERS

We have only ourselves to blame for problems

I

COMMENTARY

Indiana and Arizona, which have voter ID laws, argue that vote fraud remains a serious problem and claim that the laws will completely eradicate the practice. By shortening the time for early voting (in states that permit this), requiring birth certificates and photo IDs to register, and demanding that citizens present a photo ID to vote, these states create obstacles that actually prevent honest people from exercising their right to vote. In particular, younger and older people without driver’s licenses, the poor and people of color will have difficulty obtaining a photo ID. There is also a cost for states that require voter ID because they must offer citizens convenient locations and times to apply for them. The Pennsylvania County Commissioners Association’s estimates are in the millions of dollars. With House Bill 934, members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly are faced with an important choice on voting requirements. Considering the absence of any evidence of substantiated voter fraud in Pennsylvania, the anticipated extra cost to implement the new rules and the strong likelihood that a voter ID requirement will disenfranchise some Pennsylvanians, we oppose HB 934 and recommend that voters contact their state representatives to vote against this bill. Rather than advance the expansion of the franchise, HB 934 will suppress citizen participation

I grew up hoping that my generation could live up to the standards set by past generations, that we would see something wrong and protest it until it was changed. I hoped we could make this world even better. Well, my generation has grown up and, frankly, I’m disappointed. My generation apparently has decided the only sit-ins its members will attend will be the ones in front of their Xboxes. We like to blame all of our nation’s problems on the president, but the society of the 1960s proved that the president does not run our country; we do.

Filming also will take place at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, she said. Crews will edit the film during the summer with the goal of completing a rough cut by September for consideration in the Sundance Film Festival, said Donahue, of Summit, N.J. Fetchko scouted the area and knocked on doors looking for prospective filming locations that had the necessary physical characteristics, Donahue said. Fetchko, who now lives in Mountain Top, said during a brief conversation Monday that he wanted to highlight Northeastern Pennsylvania. “Setting it in the area was a nobrainer for me,” he said. Plot inspired by director’s life His film career started in 1998 when he co-wrote and produced “Everything’s Jake,” a film about two homeless men in New York City that was released by Warner Brothers in 2007. He also produced the feature film, “Eavesdrop,” which was written and directed by Matthew Miele and released by Shoreline Entertainment in 2010. The plot of “Trust Me” was largely inspired by Fetchko’s decision to leave a stable accounting career to manage a rock band, his experience managing The Badlees and a past choice to put his work over a relationship with a woman he loved, according to his online blog about the movie. The film tells the story of Charlie, who quits a high-paying job on Wall Street to manage a struggling rock band. Charlie’s battle

to balance ambition and love “spirals into a romantic, financial, and emotional tailspin, culminating in a last-ditch effort to put on the most unique rock concert of all time,” said a movie description released by Fetchko. New York City actor Sean Modica has been cast as Charlie. Actress Lynn Cohen, who played Miranda’s housekeeper on the HBO series “Sex and the City,” is Charlie’s nosy yet concerned neighbor, Mrs. Joshman. In the scene filmed Tuesday, Mrs. Joshman burst into Charlie’s apartment and pushed him to get off the couch and face his problems. Cohen hung out on the sidewalk in front of Heim’s home between shoots, dressed in a housedress she had to wear in that scene. Modica also walked around in a frayed, stained sweatshirt, with unkempt hair and a beard. The scene will be shown toward the end of the movie, but it had to be filmed first because Modica had to grow a beard that was to be shaved Tuesday afternoon for the rest of filming, Do-

Bon Jovi engineer helps film Music will be an instrumental part of the film, and Bon Jovi’s sound engineer, Obie O’Brien, will supervise the film’s music, live recordings and soundtrack, said Donahue. “He’s a huge catch,” Donahue said. “We have incredible music in this film.” In the scene to be filmed at the River Common, Charlie and his

girlfriend will stroll through the park along the Susquehanna River and encounter an animal adoption area, Donahue said. Charlie’s supportive girlfriend will cuddle a puppy she wants to take home, but he keeps walking, oblivious. “He’s so wrapped up in his work that he tends not to pay attention to what is important, which is his girlfriend,” Donahue said. The scene at Place One will focus on the girlfriend, an aspiring fashion designer who initially shelves her dreams to bolster Charlie. Place One will become the girlfriend’s movie workplace, where she sketches her own designs when she’s not busy selling

Wilkes-Barre closed its Olympic-sized pool at Coal Street Park six years ago and is in the process of opening a splash pad at that location this summer with an anticipated opening in July. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton said the decision to eliminate the pool in favor of the splash pad was made because the pool “was cost-prohibitive to repair and maintain.” The splash pad will cost $145,439.

Interns manned the perimeter of the set Tuesday to make sure passersby did not get too noisy or pass into the camera view.

Tiger withdraws from U.S. Open Woods sidelined indefinitely due to lingering issues with his left leg. By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tiger Woods pulled out of the U.S. Open on Tuesday because of lingering issues with his left leg, leaving him uncertain how soon he can resume his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record for major titles. It will be the first time Woods has mis-

sed the U.S. Open since 1994, when he had just graduated high school. “I am extremely disappointed that I won’t be playing in the U.S. Open, but it’s time for me to listen to my docWoods tors and focus on the future,” Woods said on his website. “I was hopeful that I could play, but if I did, I risk further damage to my left leg. My knee and Achilles tendon are not fully healed.”

Woods said he hoped to be ready for the AT&T National, which starts June 30 at Aronomink, and the next two majors. Then again, he said two weeks ago he would do everything possible to be ready for the U.S. Open, which is far more significant. “We’re very disappointed that he won be playing in the National Open,” USGA executive director Mike Davis said, whom Woods called Tuesday morning. “He certainly brings excitement to the event. He’ll be missed, but the U.S. Open

will go on. The event is bigger than one player, but he certainly will be missed.” The U.S. Open starts June 16 at Congressional, where Woods won the AT&T National two years ago and tied for 19th when the U.S. Open was last played there in 1997. Woods was replaced by Michael Whitehead, a senior at Rice who was first alternate from the Dallas qualifier. Whitehead had to win a playoff just to get out of the See TIGER, Page 4B

Mavericks even series

Ray Black and Mike Papi were selected by the Giants and Angels, respectively, Tuesday. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

A pair of hard-earned honors came on Tuesday. Up next is a pair of important decisions. Two players with local ties, Ray Black (Coughlin) and Mike Papi (Tunkhannock), were selected on the second day of the MLB draft Tuesday. Both have until Aug.15 to choose between playing in college or the pros next season. Black, a Coughlin grad and current University of Pittsburgh pitcher, Black was taken in the seventh round by the reigning world champion San Francisco Giants with the 237th overall pick. Papi, still a senior at TunkPapi hannock, went in the 30th round (915th overall) to the Los Angeles Angels. At the pro level, Black projects as reliever and Papi projects as an outfielder. Papi becomes the first Wyoming Valley Conference player to be drafted while still in high school sincePittstonArea’sPaulChmielin 2005. Speaking late Tuesday night, Papi said he expects to hold off on turning pro and head to the UniversityofVirginiainJuly,allowingthat there was perhaps “a 1 percent chance” that he would change his mind and sign with the Angels. “Getting a degree and having the college experience … it’s hard to pass up Virginia,” said Papi, who called it “a relief” to have the draft behind him for now. “It’s just a big See DRAFT, Page 3B

He contributed nine rebounds and seven assists, but his lack of scoring sticks out because of the loss. Nowitzki opened the game looking just fine, making his first three shots.

OPINION BRIAN HAMILTON

Irish coach going out on shaky ledge MICHAEL FLOYD’S EXILE from Notre Dame football has ended, and the mirage of consequences after his March arrest surely will dissolve shortly. There is little doubt now the gifted but sometimes daffy receiver will play in the season opener this fall. The only question left: At what cost? Notre Dame cleared Floyd on Monday for voluntary summer workouts, effectively ending his suspension after a March 20 arrest on a charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He is not reinstated fully, but that’s semantics. Next up is the eventual plea agreement, cauterizing the open legal wound. Then comes taking the field Sept. 3 against South Florida, given coach Brian Kelly’s stance that Floyd will miss every game or no games. All of which makes Floyd the biggest gamble of Kelly’s tenure. Playing in 2011 is possible for the 2010 team MVP only because the previously uncompromising university discipline arm stood down, allowing Kelly to impose penalties and affect change in Floyd’s behavior his way. If Floyd doesn’t miss a down come September, Kelly risks all that goodwill on a player with a history of fabulous play and dubious decision-making — while putting Irish faithful in the uncomfortable spot of conceding Notre Dame might not be as different as they expected it to be. Floyd has had three alcoholrelated run-ins since 2008. After the last, Kelly set a rigid framework: all-in or all-out. “If he meets the conditions I have outlined to him and he demonstrates improved decision-making skills, Michael will have the opportunity to rejoin the team for practices and games this fall,” Kelly said in a statement. “If he doesn’t meet every criteria given to him, Michael will not play for Notre Dame in 2011.” It’s a curious posture. As message delivery goes, withholding playing time is by far a coach’s most effective courier. The way it looks now, a third misstep cost Floyd spring practice and some weightlifting. For a veteran such as Floyd, skipping spring ball is nearly a relief; one longtime starter played all of four snaps in one scrimmage. As punishment, it rings hollow. Meanwhile, an unscientific fan survey after Floyd’s arrest revealed a sensible perspective: Irish fans believed banishing Floyd for 2011 was outrageous, but they felt a two- or threegame suspension meant Notre Dame maintained a higher standard. So what does it mean when he runs out of the tunnel Sept. 3? Maybe all this legitimately changed Floyd for the better. It’s impossible to know unless you’ve tailed him for months. You’d hope a 21-year-old with a college career and NFL millions at stake wouldn’t put himself in position to make another bad choice. Kelly knows this is a calculated bet. Players’ in-season schedules are pop-a-button full, leaving little time to screw up. The likelihood of Floyd relapsing is small. But one more mistake will undermine much more for a coach who got the latitude from a success-starved school that his predecessors craved. Floyd will be all-in for sure. Kelly will be too.

Dodgers keep Phils struggling The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Rubby De La Rosa pitched five effective innings in his first career start and Dee Gordon had three hits in his first start, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 Tuesday night. De La Rosa (2-0) allowed one run, constantly having to pitch out of trouble because he walked five and gave up four hits. Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer for the Dodgers, who’ve won six of nine. Roy Oswalt (3-4) lost his fourth straight decision. Oswalt allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings to remain winless since April 21. The NL East-leading Phillies have lost five of six. Pirates 8, Diamondbacks 5

PITTSBURGH — Lyle Overbay hit a three-run double to cap a five-run eighth inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Arizona was in position for its seventh consecutive road win after Daniel Hudson allowed only one earned run through seven innings, but Daniel Hernandez (2-2) did not retire any of the six batters he faced in the eighth. Braves 1, Marlins 0

MIAMI — Tommy Hanson pitched six innings and the Atlanta Braves won with only two hits when they sent the Florida Marlins to their sixth

consecutive loss. Florida’s Brad Hand (0-1) went six innings in his major league debut and allowed just one hit — a homer by Alex Gonzalez leading off the fourth. Reds 8, Cubs 2

CINCINNATI — Miguel Cairo hit a grand slam to help make Edinson Volquez’s return to the majors a success and the Cincinnati Reds continued their dominance of the Chicago Cubs with a win. Volquez (4-2), recalled earlier Tuesday from Triple-A Louisville, lasted a season-high seven innings. He allowed one run and seven hits while walking two and striking out five. He improved his career record against Chicago to 4-0 in six starts. Mets 2, Brewers 1

MILWAUKEE — Jose Reyes hit a two-run triple to give New York the lead in the seventh inning and the Mets held on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night. Reyes’ triple came off reliever Marco Estrada and wasted an impressive start from Milwaukee’s Shaun Marcum, who pitched six scoreless innings. Cardinals 7, Astros 4

HOUSTON — Jake Westbrook shook off early trouble on the mound and helped his cause with a three-run, tiebreaking double to help the St. Louis Cardinals to a win over the Houston Astros.

weight off my shoulders.” For Black, the decision figures to be a tougher one. “Today is a very exciting day for me,” Black said through Pitt. “I am presentedwithagreatopportunity. I could come back to the University of Pittsburgh for my junior year or I can play at the professional level. It’s a nice choice to have to make.” “He’s gifted with a golden right arm, a flame-throwing arm,” said Coughlin’s Moe Rodzinak, who coached Black throughout his varsity career. “It’s nice to see (two players get drafted). It’s nice to see our area get some recognition – not

just with getting drafted, but with the colleges, too.” Black recently finished his redshirt sophomore season at Pitt and still has two years of eligibility remaining. Papi has signed a letter of intent to play at Virginia next season. The deadline for MLB teams to sign their draft picks is Aug. 15, so both players have roughly two months to come to a final decision. Signing a pro contract would prohibit them from playing in the college ranks at any point. “It’s tough on a kid,” Rodzinak said. “They’re young, and the school’s pulling on one arm to stay in school and a scout’s pulling on the other to sign. Then they’re throwing money in their face to sign.

“It’s a tough choice for a young kid. It really is.” Known best for a fastball that tops out in the high 90s, Black earned a scholarship offer from Pitt before his senior season at Coughlin, which was cut short by Tommy John surgery. After redshirting in his first season on campus to recover from the operation, Black has since carved out a spot in the Panthers’ bullpen, pitching 20 innings and picking up four saves in 2011. His33strikeoutsthispastseason gave him a strikeouts-per-nine-inningsmarkof14.85,asingle-season record for the Panthers. Black, a 6-foot-5 right-hander, has appeared in 30 games and made two starts in two seasons at Pitt, collecting five career saves.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L June 8 1914 — New York’s Iron Joe McGinnity posted his 14th straight win in a 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh that moved the Giants into first place over Chicago. 1927 — New York’s Tony Lazzeri hit three homers in the Yankees’ 12-11 11-inning win over the Chicago White Sox. Lazzeri’s first two homers come off Red Faber and his third was a two-run line drive off George Connally to tie the game in the ninth inning. The Yanks were behind 11-6 going into the last inning. New York won it in the 11th after Cedric Durst tripled, Lazzeri was intentionally walked and Ray Morehart singled. 1933 — Philadelphia’s Jimmie Foxx homered in his first three at-bats off Lefty Gomez as the A’s beat the New York Yankees 14-10. Foxx had homered his last time up the previous day to tie a major league record of hitting four consecutive home runs. Bobby Lowe did it in 1894.

“It is exciting to see Ray be draftedintheseventhround,”Pittcoach JoeJordanosaidinaschoolrelease. “Ray has a big arm with a ton of upside. He is in a great position right now and whatever decision he makes, he will be in great shape. “Rayhasworkedveryhardandis a great team player who deserves everything that comes his way.” Papi has helped lead Tunkhannock to back-to-back District 2 Class 3A titles, as the Tigers have reached the state quarterfinals in both seasons. Working as the Tigers’ starting shortstop as well as a closer, Papi wasoneofthemostfearedhittersin the region this spring, drawing multiple walks per game while leading the team in hitting.

The Yankees’ Jorge Vazquez tags out Charlotte’s Aleejandro De Aza during Tuesday night’s game at PNC Field.

Charlotte breaks open close game By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

MOOSIC – Tuesday night’s game at PNC Field could be viewed as a tale of two games. The first half of the contest between Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Charlotte was crisp, quick and well-pitched with just one run scored and only needing 70 minutes to complete four and a half innings. The last four and a half finished in nearly twice the time needed for the first half with nine runs crossing the plate in a wild 8-2 win for the Knights. Andrew Brackman got the start for the Yankees and performed exceptionally well for the first five innings. Known for his first-inning struggles, the 6-foot-10 righthander didn’t allow a hit until the fourth inning. He was cruising along with a 1-0 lead – even hitting 96 MPH on his fastball in the second inning – until things unraveled in the sixth. That’s when Eduardo Escobar, the leadoff batter in the inning, walked to open the inning. Then two batters later, Jim Gallagher netted an RBI-double to even the score at 1-1. Brackman (2-5) appeared to be on his way to getting out of the frame with the score tied and two outs. But he walked two more batters, allowed a two-run double and uncorked a wild pitch to give

Charlotte a 4-1 lead. The 25-year-old couldn’t get out of the sixth going 5 2/3 allowing just three hits, but walking four and fanning two. “I guess you just look at the good and take away what you did well,” Brackman said. “To tell you the truth I didn’t have my best stuff. The first five just kind of flew by and the walk in the sixth threw me off.” The Yankees cut Charlotte’s deficit to 4-2 in the bottom of the sixth on a run-scoring single from Kevin Russo. But they had other opportunities to get runs in the inning. Jorge Vazquez led off with a single and the next hitter, Brandon Laird doubled. But the next two hitters – Jordan Parraz and Greg Golson – struck out before Russo’s hit. On the RBI-hit, Laird was nailed at the plate by centerfielder Jordan Danks to end the rest of the threat. SWB also had a scoring chance in the seventh when it loaded the bases with two outs and came up empty.

The Yankees also threatened in the eighth after back-to-back, leadoff walks. But the runners were stranded as three straight strikeouts ended the inning. Overall Scranton/WilkesBarre left 10 runners on base, was 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and struck out 11 times. “That says it all right there,” Yankees manager Dave Miley said pointing to the highlighted gaudy numbers in the box score. “Everybody had a hand in it.” While the Yankees were missing chances, the Knights were cashing in. Charlotte broke the game open with three runs in the seventh and another in the eighth. In the sixth, seventh and eighth innings, the Knights sent a combined 23 batters to the plate and totaled a 4-for-11 night with runners in scoring position. Gustavo Molina hit his first home run of the year, a shot over

the 371-foot marker on the left field fence to put the Yankees up 1-0 in the third.

Arizona State sweeps Florida for second softball title The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Freshman Dallas Escobedo and Arizona State kept the NCAA softball championship the property of the Pac-10. Katelyn Boyd and freshman Alix Johnson each drove in three runs, Annie Lockwood homered and the Sun Devils beat Florida 7-2 Tuesday night to win their

have fun in the process,” Bonvie said in between one of five sessions that he instructs each night. “That’s our goal.” Each session is divided into age groups and Bonvie customizes his instruction to meet the needs of each group. The mite and squirt sessions, for example, focus on basic skills. Those kids who are making the transition into leagues where checking is allowed are given a heavy dose of the correct ways to give and take a hit, along with a boost of confidence. The latter, Bonvie said, is just as important. “So many kids, when they get to pee-wee and bantam – the age when checking is allowed, they can get intimidated,” Bonvie said. “But we show them the right way to do it so when they get out there they’re confident that they can play against bigger kids. “Confidence is a huge factor.” It’s a factor that the kids are learning from one of the best.

second NCAA title in four years. The top-seeded Sun Devils (60-6) used a combination of holdovers from their first Women’s College World Series title in 2008 and some key freshmen to continue the Pac-10’s dominance of the event. The conference has won 23 of the 29 championships, including the last six in a row. Arizona State joined UCLA,

Arizona and Texas A&M as the only teams to win multiple softball titles. UCLA with 12 — including one that was vacated for NCAA rules violations — and Arizona with eight are the only programs to win more than two. “I’ll tell you what. It’s so hard to win one. To have the opportunity to win two, that’s just plain special,” coach Clint Myers said in a

postgame interview that included a pie in the face. “You get into an elite group. “We’re not UCLA or (Arizona) yet. But give us time.” Escobedo (37-3) pitched a fourhitter to win her 19th straight decision, in the process becoming the first freshman pitcher to win the title since UCLA’s Heather Compton in 1990.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins head coach John Hynes and assistant coach Alain Nasreddine have each been signed to multi-year contract extensions, it was announced today by Pittsburgh Penguins executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero. Hynes, 36, led the Penguins to a regular-season championship in just his first year as an AHL head coach, finishing with a record of 58-21-0-1 and helping set franchise records for wins, home wins (30), road wins (28), and points (117). The 58 wins was the secondhighest total ever posted by an AHL team in a single season and his work earned him the Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award as the American Hockey League’s most outstanding coach, making him the first Penguins head coach to capture the honor. Having guided the Penguins to the best record in the league in early January, Hynes was also named a co-coach for the AHL’s Western Conference All-Star Team. The native of Warwick, R.I. joined the Penguins organiza-

first stage of 18-hole qualifying, and was stunned to get the news. “They said on the phone that Tiger has withdrawn from the Open,” Whitehead said. “So, ’Thanks, Tiger.’ I guess I’m glad he was listening to his doctors.” The future of Woods, meanwhile, is as muddied as ever. “The hardest thing in the world as a golfer, or any athlete, is to stay out,” two-time U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange said. “It’s smart what he’s doing. Unfortunately, the U.S. Open falls in that time frame. But every time something happens, and the longer he’s away from the game, it’s going to make it tougher for him to come back. “It’s going to be harder and harder the long this goes.” Woods hasn’t won since the 2009 Australian Masters, a stretch of 22 tournaments. He not only lost his No. 1 ranking late last year, he has plunged to No. 15 in the world, his lowest spot in the ranking since the spring of 1997. Woods announced his decision on Twitter: “Not playing in US Open. Very disappointed. Short-term frustration for longterm gain.” He had said in his most recent press conference that his injury was “not the doomsday that some of the press members are writing about.” Some in his camp believe if he had skipped The Players Championship, his left leg would have been fully healed perhaps in time for the Memorial, which he missed last week.

Another camp scheduled

Only Woods knows what kind of shape his leg is in, although he said another surgery has never been brought up by his doctors. The Masters is now the only major Woods has played every year since turning pro. He was recovering from knee surgery in 2008 and did not play the British Open and PGA Championship. “It’s been a frustrating and difficult year, but I’m committed to my longterm health,” Woods said. “I want to thank the fans for their encouragement and support. I am truly grateful and will be back playing when I can.” The question is when will he return. Woods is recovering from injuries to his left knee ligaments and left Achilles’, and his Achilles’ is believed to be giving him more trouble. “My man is hurting,” Arjun Atwal, a close friend and frequent practice partner, said last week at the Memorial. The most recent of four surgeries on Woods’ left knee came a week after the 2008 U.S. Open, which Woods won in a playoff for his 14th major. He had reconstructive surgery and was out for eight months, then returned and won seven times the following year before his personal life imploded on Thanksgiving night in 2009. Woods was tied for the lead at the turn in the final round of the Masters this year and wound up in a tie for fourth. But he said he hurt his knee and Achilles’ hitting from an awkward stance in the pine straw on the 17th hole of the third round at Augusta National, and he was limping toward the finish on Sunday. He described it as a “minor injury” in April.

Rink will get new ice After the camps are over for the summer, the ice at Coal Street, which is two years old, will be removed so a new sheet can be put down. Chris Banks, operations manager at the facility, said the Ice Rink at Coal Street is being used by so many groups that it is still a busy place even after the Penguins season is over. “We hold everything from in-house and adult hockey leagues, learn to skate classes, hockey camps and a curling club that has 60 members,” Banks said. “These things are all very popular and none of it would be here if it wasn’t for the dedication of Wilkes-Barre City to remodel the rink and open it back up to the community.”

The Ice Rink at Coal Street will be hosting two more hockey camps this summer. Chris Kelleher’s Defense Camp runs from Monday, June 13 through Thursday, June 16. The camp features instruction on techniques, positioning, skating and puck handling for all positions and any age. For more information or to register for either camp, visit www.coalstreeticerink.com.

During his 15-year professional hockey career, Bonvie played in nearly 1,000 games in the American Hockey League and National Hockey League combined. During that time he amassed more than 4,800 penalty minutes – the highest total in professional hockey. During the mite session, Kim Fine watched her 6-year-old son, Nicholas, skate with Bonvie and eagerly listen to anything he had to say on the ice. At the end of the session, Fine was convinced that Bonvie has a knack for teaching and motivating kids. “He gives them confidence because when they think they

tion as an assistant coach in 2009-10, and was named head coach on July 31, 2010. Hynes previously coached in the United States National Team Development Program, where his Under-18 national teams won silver (2004), gold (2006) and bronze (2008) in IIHF world championship play. Nasreddine, 35, found immediate success as Hynes’ assistant in his first year as an AHL coach. Spending parts of five seasons with Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins in his playing days, Nasreddine ranks 10th all-time in games played (249) and tied for seventh all-time in points by a defenseman (56). Nasreddine’s AHL career spans 726 games with Carolina, Portland, Fredericton, Quebec, Hamilton, Bridgeport, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The native of Montreal, Quebec also appeared in 74 NHL contests with Chicago, Montreal, New York Islanders, and Pittsburgh. He was originally selected by the Florida Panthers in the sixth round (135th overall) in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.

can’t do something, he shows them how to do it and he doesn’t give up until every kid can do it,” Fine said. “He’s definitely a good teacher with the kids.” Bonvie wasn’t the only former pro hockey player on the ice teaching the kids either. He

was joined by another former Penguin, Chris Kelleher, for each session. Kelleher said the fact that former pro hockey players are holding camps at Coal Street is a huge benefit to youth hockey players in the area who, in the past, didn’t have such an op-

portunity. “We’ve been through a lot in our hockey careers and it’s kind of nice to teach the kids what we’ve learned and show them how to have fun with the sport as well,” Kelleher said. Fun, Bonvie added, is what hockey is all about.

“When I was playing pro hockey I always said I wouldn’t do it if I wasn’t having fun,” Bonvie said. “Having fun is the main reason why you play.” Conklin and the other kids in the camp seemed to be having plenty of it as the night went on. “I like Dennis Bonvie and my dad likes him too,” Conklin said. “I’m happy he can show me how to be a better skater and a better hockey player.”

Owner confident Nehro will capture Belmont

Belmont trash talk heats up

Kentucky Derby runner-up skipped the Preakness in favor of Saturday’s race.

By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — There is nobody more eager to show up in the winner’s circle after the Belmont Stakes than Ahmed Zayat. Sure, Saturday’s final leg of the Triple Crown is being trumpeted as the rubber match between Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom and Preakness winner Shackleford. But Zayat is confident his colt Nehro is poised to shed a runner-up reputation and win the 11⁄2-mile Belmont, the longest and most grueling of the Triple Crown races. Nehro has finished second in his last three starts, including the Kentucky Derby. Zayat contends Nehro is the most consistent 3-year-old of the bunch and is certain his horse does not have “seconditis.” “We’ve been second, second, second every dance,” Zayat said the other morning at Belmont Park. “He’s versatile: you can see him at the rail, near the pace, closing like a freight train. The mile-and-a-half is a non-issue. We’re very confident he’s ready. ... I don’t want to be a bridesmaid again.” Zayat is all too familiar with close calls. Two years ago, his Pioneerof the Nile finished second in the 2009 Kentucky Derby behind 50-1 shot Mine That Bird. A year ago his Derby favorite Eskendereya was sidelined with an injury less than a week before the race and was retired. In addition, the 48-year-old Egyptian businessman who lives in New Jersey nearly lost his sprawling racing operation last year during a very public court battle with Fifth Third Bank. Today, his Zayat Stables has about 200 horses, and he says he’s invested “close to $100 million” into the game since becoming an owner only six years ago. His top 3-year-old this year was supposed to be Jaycito, and Nehro was just getting started.

Nehro grazes Tuesday at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y. The Kentucky Derby runner-up is entered in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes.

After finishing second to Premier Pegasus in the San Felipe in March, Jaycito was sidelined with an injury. Meanwhile, Nehro, a son of Mineshaft bought for a relative bargain $170,000, had won his first — and so far only — race in February at Oaklawn Park. He then finished second by a neck in the Louisiana Derby, second by a neck in the Arkansas Derby and second by 23⁄4 lengths in the Kentucky Derby. Zayat, along with trainer Steve Asmussen, decided to skip the Preakness and wait on the Belmont, which could have a field of as many as 13 when entries are drawn Wednesday. The first seven Derby finishers are expected to line up in the Belmont. Zayat can’t wait. “We have beaten all of them, except one (Animal Kingdom) and we will have no excuses if we lose,” he said.

zled in his final workout before the Belmont, covering four furlongs in 47.76 seconds Monday, Nehro went much slower, timed at 50.88 at the same distance. No matter to the always optimistic Zayat. “We’re ready,” he said after the breeze. “I don’t want to sound arrogant, because I’m not, but this horse is honest, he always shows up, he’s versatile and all heart and that’s the sign of a good horse, if not a great horse.” Graham Motion, who trains Animal Kingdom, said Nehro could be a horse to watch Saturday. Horses like Nehro, Brilliant Speed, Master of Hounds, Santiva and Stay Thirsty skipped the Preakness, so they come to the Belmont after a five-week break. “They have an advantage,” Motion said. “It’s just common sense they have an edge in freshness. If I had one of those horses, I’d feel pretty good about it.”

Nothing like a little Triple Crown trash talk a few days before the Belmont Stakes. The owner of Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom fired the first salvo at a news conference in Manhattan on Tuesday, dissing Preakness winner Shackleford’s chances of winning Saturday’s final leg of the Triple Crown. “I’m not worried about Shackleford, by the way,” said Barry Irwin of Team Valor International, which owns Animal Kingdom. “I’m worried about Mucho Macho Man. I think he’s the horse to beat.” His comments drew oohs and aahs from those in attendance, including Shackleford’s trainer Dale Romans. When it was his turn to step up to the podium, Romans retaliated. “That’s not the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard Barry say, but it’s one of them,” Romans said to much laughter. The friendly feud continued after the formal interviews, with Irwin wondering what all the fuss was about. “What’s so controversial?” he asked. “I gave my opinion, for God’s sake.” As Romans was leaving, he pointed a finger at Irwin, smiled, and said: “I want you!” Sounds like a little more spice has been added to the rubber match between the Derby winner and the Preakness winner. After winning the Derby, Irwin raised eyebrows when he answered the question of why he had recently moved all of his horses to trainer

Graham Motion with: “I got tired of other trainers lying to me. I wanted a guy to tell me the truth.” ANIMAL CLASSIC Barry Irwin, whose Team Valor International owns Animal Kingdom, says his longterm goal for his Kentucky Derby winner is the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Churchill Downs in November. “But I have my own schedule for him that doesn’t include the Haskell or the Travers,” he said, somewhat mysteriously. Asked if he looked forward to continuing the rivalry with Animal Kingdom, Shackleford’s trainer Dale Romans said: “I’ll meet him anywhere, any time, at any distance.” MUCHO MACHO FUN Relatively new owners Dean and Patti Reeves (Reeves Thoroughbred Racing) are having so much fun on the Triple Crown trail with Mucho Macho Man, they went out and bought three 2-yearolds recently at the Ocala sales: two fillies (Miss Suwanee and Dixie Darling) and a colt (Arthur — named for a family friend, not the movie). They also own three other 2-year-olds: Uncle Joe, Whistlin’ Dixie and Cause I Can. Dean Reeves says he went to his first Kentucky Derby in 1976, when Bold Forbes won, and spent the day in the infield. “Never saw a horse go by, but I had a great time,” he said.

The Reeves are planning to bring Mucho Macho Man and their 2-year-olds to Saratoga this summer. “If you can compete at Saratoga with 2-year-olds, then you’re pretty good the rest of the year,” he said. Mucho Macho Man comes into the Belmont after running third in the Derby and sixth in the Preakness. The colt will be wearing new Polyflex glue-on shoes after losing a shoe in two of his last three races, including the Preakness. The product’s website says the shoe “is molded from hybrid polyurethane, resulting in a degree of hardness closely resembling the natural composition of the horse’s hoof.” Adds trainer Kathy Ritvo: “He started with nail shoes, then we went to a glue-on regular shoe, now he has a glue-on Polyflex. I think that he’s probably snatching it coming out of the gate, and he’s not supposed to be able to get this one off.”

still hopes to reach a separate extension with GE as a toptier sponsor. “This was not a component of the deal,” Carrion said. “We wanted to just focus on the broadcast rights.” More than just the money and long-term nature of the deal, though, was the powerful impact that Costas and the rest of the 17-person delegation made in the two-hour closed-door presentation to the IOC. They hit hard on the emotional aspect, including a tear-jerking video about the network’s love and dedication for the games. “We were blown away by the presentation,” Carrion said. “The passion that this team has for the Olympic Games was very impressive and very evident to all of us. ... I’d be less than honest if I said the numbers didn’t come into play. It was all of it. “Even Bob Costas made a very emotional appeal.”

it again,”’ Costas, who has hosted NBC’s coverage of eight Olympics, said shortly after all three networks dropped their envelopes with sealed bids into a clear plastic box. NBC now has exclusive rights to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, and

tential impact of parent company Disney, including its appeal to a young audience. “To go any further would not have made good business sense for us,” ESPN said in a statement. “We put our best foot forward with a compelling offer that included the enthusiastic participation of all of The Walt Disney Co.’s considerable assets.” In the last rights auction in 2003, NBC outbid Fox and ESPN to secure the 2010 and 2012 Olympics in a deal worth $2.2 billion. That included $2 billion in straight rights fees, plus a $200 million global sponsorship deal with NBC’s former parent company, General Electric. The IOC had said it hoped to exceed that deal this time, and it did — slightly. The $4.382 billion figure for four games represents a small increase only in rights fees compared with the previous two-games package. Carrion said the IOC

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Bob Costas made the pitch and NBC met the price. The peacock network outbid Fox and ESPN by almost a billion dollars Tuesday to win U.S. television rights to four more Olympics and keep the games through 2020. The result: a $4.38 billion knockout for NBC. Despite a recent change in ownership, the sudden departure of longtime Olympic chief Dick Ebersol and an uncertain economy, NBC and its parent company, Comcast, defied speculation that its grip on the Olympics was coming to an end. “I can say the Olympics are really in their DNA,” International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge said. “We’ve been together with them for so many games with great success.” Executives with direct knowledge of the proposals told The Associated Press that Fox bid $3.4 billion for four games and $1.5 billion for two, while ESPN offered $1.4 billion for two. They spoke on condition of anonymity be-

the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, as well as the 2018 Winter Games and 2020 Olympics, whose sites have not yet been chosen. The deal includes all broadcast platforms, including Internet, mobile and hand-held devices. “You think definitely of the finances, but you think also of the past experiences, you think of the enthusiasm of the team, the technical qualities,” Rogge said. “We thought that was the best combination.” IOC TV rights negotiator Richard Carrion said NBC would pay $775 million for Sochi, $1.226 billion for Rio, $963 million for the 2018 Winter Games and $1.418 billion for the 2020 Summer Olympics. “This secures the financial future for the next decade of the Olympic movement,” Rogge said. “I’m bitterly disappointed,” Fox sports chairman David Hill said. ESPN had played up the po-

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Pryor decides to skip final season at Ohio State By RUSTY MILLER AP Sports Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Terrelle Pryor’s career at Ohio State, which started with so much promise and potential, came to an abrupt and scandalridden end. The Ohio State quarterback announced through his attorney Tuesday that he would not play for the Buckeyes this season. He had already been suspended for the first five games for breaking NCAA rules by accepting improper benefits from the owner of a tattoo parlor. “In the best interests of my teammates, I’ve made the decision to forgo my senior year of football at The Ohio State University,” Pryor said in a statement issued by Columbus lawyer Larry James.

Pryor will most likely make himself available for an NFL supplemental draft. “I would hope so. Also, Pryor he would hope so,” said James, who added that Pryor was not available for comment. “But he’s going to take the next couple of days to get his head together.” The Cleveland Plain Dealer first reported Pryor’s announcement. The NCAA is looking into all aspects of Ohio State’s once-glittering program, from cash and tattoos to players, cars deals for athletes and other potential violations. Pryor’s announcement comes

just eight days after Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign for knowing about the players’ improper benefits but not telling any of his superiors. “He did not want to be a a distraction to his teammates,” James said of Pryor. “This is something he came to consider after much thought.” Ohio State’s athletic director, Gene Smith, quickly issued a statement wishing Pryor the best. “We understand Terrelle’s decision and wish him well in this next phase of his life,” Smith said. “We hope he returns to The Ohio State University one day to finish his degree.” Luke Fickell, who will serve as Ohio State’s interim head coach in place of Tressel this fall, found out about Pryor’s de-

cision on Tuesday night. “I was notified this evening that Terrelle has decided to pursue a professional career,” Fickell said. “I wish him the best in his pursuits.” Pryor came to Ohio State on March 19, 2007, from Jeannette, Pa., as the most acclaimed high school quarterback prospect in the country. His career will be remembered in his adoptive home state for his three victories in as many tries against archrival Michigan, and victories in the Rose and Sugar Bowl. But it will also be remembered for a series of missteps and controversies that seemed to follow the 6-foot-6, 233pound physical specimen wherever he went and no matter what he said.

BCS sets tentative dates for games NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Bowl Championship Series has chosen dates for its five bowl games in an effort to avoid conflicts that could arise because of the NFL lockout, with flexibility to move the title game. While the BCS title game in New Orleans remains scheduled for Jan. 9. a Monday night, it could be moved either up to Jan. 7 or back to Jan. 10. BCS executive director Bill Hancock said the mostly midweek dates were chosen in case the lockout causes the NFL schedule to be pushed back. “We made a careful decision to choose dates that will ensure a primetime showcase for our student-athletes while also being mindful of the potential for change in the NFL’s schedule,” he said. “At this point in time, we want to create certainty in a somewhat uncertain environment.” Hancock said the Rose Bowl, which is not played in an NFL stadium, will be played on Jan. 2. The Sugar Bowl will be played on Jan. 3, which is a Tuesday, then the Orange Bowl on Jan. 4 and the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 5. The NFL lockout was already looming when the BCS began planning for the coming season, so the organization listed two possible dates for the Sugar Bowl (Jan. 2 or 3), Orange Bowl (Jan. 3 or 4), and Fiesta Bowl (Jan. 4 or 5). With no solution to the NFL’s labor strife in sight, the BCS decided it would be safest to go with the later dates for those three games.

BOXING

Luongo, Thomas sticking to guns

Mayweather set to make ring return The Associated Press

By HOWARD ULMAN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Robert Luongo and Tim Thomas have drastically different styles with one overriding similarity. The stay-at-home goalie and the roamer are two of the NHL’s best at their position. At times, the approach that has worked so well fails: Thomas vacating the net on an overtime goal that gave Vancouver a win in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals, then Luongo filling the crease with his full 6-foot-3 height but still letting eight goals fly by in Boston’s win in Game 3. But their biggest mistake would be to change their styles. They’re not about to do that in Game 4 tonight with the Canucks leading the Bruins 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. “I’ve been playing well all year. I think it’s worked out pretty well for me,” Luongo said Tuesday, the day after the 8-1 loss. “I made some adjustments before the year started, so I’m not going to readjust again.” The Bruins lost the first two games 1-0 and 3-2, although Thomas played well. But when Alex Burrows charged ahead in Game 2, Thomas went out to cut down the angle. Burrows skated around him and continued behind the net, then tucked the puck in the far side 11 seconds into overtime. “I have a pretty good idea of how to play goalie,” Thomas said with a smile after the loss. “I’m not going to be taking suggesti-

ons or advice at this time. I’m just going to keep playing the way I have.” Thomas led the NHL with a 2.00 goals against average. Luongo was second at 2.11. Thomas also topped the league with a .938 save percentage. Luongo was third among starting goalies at .928. That pair, plus Pekka Rinne of Nashville, are the finalists for the Vezina Trophy. In 2009, Thomas won the award given to the NHL’s best goaltender. Though they may have occasional lapses, the goalies in the finals also have the confidence of their teammates and coaches. While the Bruins’ offensive onslaught grabbed the spotlight, Thomas allowed just one goal on 41 shots. “When you look at the final score, you don’t think he had any

If it’s a 2-1 hockey game, now you’re giving the other team some light and it could have been a different outcome.” Both goalies were sharp through a scoreless first period. Then the Bruins caught a break when Andrew Ference scored the first goal after Vancouver’s Alexander Edler broke his stick trying to clear the puck. Mark Recchi was credited with

the second goal when his pass into the crease deflected into the net off the stick of Canucks forward Ryan Kesler. “They got a couple of fortunate bounces and then, all of a sudden, the floodgates open and maybe they get a little bit of confidence,” Luongo said. He allowed three more goals in the last 21⁄2 minutes of the game, but there was plenty of blame to go around — and a lot of faith that Luongo would bounce right back. “He’s done it all year, so that’s not a problem,” NHL scoring champion Daniel Sedin said.

Canucks don’t see themselves as the villians By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — The last time Henrik Sedin looked, the Vancouver Canucks’ hats were blue, not black. The Canucks don’t see themselves as the villains in the Stanley Cup finals, even after a series of contentious plays that have inspired anger and indignation in the Boston Bruins heading into Game 4 on Wednesday. Defenseman Aaron Rome’s big hit on Boston’s Nathan Horton in Game 3 was just the latest incident in a postseason that included Alex Burrows’ infamous finger-bite in the series opener last week. The Canucks work hard and strive to hit hard after being criticized for soft play in past postseasons, but they insist they don’t play dirty. “I know the guys we have in the room,” said Sedin, the Vancouver captain. “We’re honest guys. We’re hardworking guys. We’re a tight group. If people on the outside say what they want to say, that’s fine. I don’t

Instead, the Vancouver Canucks’ vaunted power play has lost its way in the Stanley Cup finals. Led by the Sedin twins’ peerless playmaking, the Canucks had the NHL’s best power play during the regular season and again in the postseason until hitting a 1-for-16 slump in the first three games against the Bruins. Vancouver’s power play went 0 for 8 in its embarrassing 8-1 loss in Game 3, yet the Sedins seem certain nothing is broken. “Mistakes, that’s the only thing,” captain Henrik Sedin said. “We’re not moving enough. We’ve been unpredictable all year because of the way we’ve been moving on the power play. Right now, we’re moving the puck, but we’re not moving players into their box. That’s what we need to do.” After entering the finals in a 5-for-61 skid, the Bruins’ power play has outscored Vancouver’s man-advantage unit, getting two goals in Game 3. Boston also scored two short-handed goals against the Canucks’ power play.

LAS VEGAS — Floyd Mayweather Jr. is returning to the ring. The undefeated six-time world champion announced on his Twitter feed Tuesday he will end a 16-month hiatus when he faces WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz on September 17. Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs) hasn’t fought since a unanimous decision over Shane Mosley on May 1, 2010, and has repeatedly declined to accept a bout against WBO welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao — a dream ticket many boxing fans are eager to witness. Instead, it was Mosley who squared off with Pacquiao in May, losing to the Filipino star in a lopsided 12-round decision. Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KOs) is riding a six-match win streak, most recently defeating Andre Berto in April to claim the WBC crown in a fight many consider the year’s best. “I am ready to return to the ring and give my fans a fantastic night of boxing by fighting the best out there for me; that is Victor Ortiz,” Mayweather said in a statement. “At this stage of my career, these are the challenges I look for, a young, strong, rising star looking to make his mark in boxing by beating me. “Trust me, I will be ready.” The 24-year-old MexicanAmerican is one of the sport’s strongest young fighters. “I respect Mayweather because he has been a champion for many years and I know he will be ready, but so will I,” said Ortiz. “I’m a world cham-

NFL, players reportedly conduct talks in New York

By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — The NFL and its players held talks Tuesday in New York, seeking a resolution to the labor impasse. Three people familiar with the meetings confirmed to The Associated Press that the two groups met. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the meetings were supposed to be confidential. One of the people confirmed the sides met in New York. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league has no comment on the meeting, first reported by the NFL Network. This is the second time in the last week the two sides have met, including a three-day session outside Chicago that included Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith. The idea

is simple: face-to-face negotiations are more likely to lead to a new collective bargaining agreement than court actions. Last Friday, both sides appeared before the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, arguing whether the owners’ lockout of the players is legal. The lockout is approaching its third month, with the first preseason game just two months away. If the federal appeals court orders the lockout lifted, the owners would need to implement a system for free agency, perhaps with a salary cap, and would not get the new business model they are seeking. The federal appeals court has said it will rule in “due course.” Judge Kermit Bye, however, advised the two sides to work it out, saying the court’s decision likely will be “something both sides aren’t going to like.”

Singapore passes Vegas as No. 2 gambling spot Struggling Nevada gambling mecca, lost the No. 1 spot to Macau in 2006.

The Associated Press

MACAU — Asia will boast the world’s two biggest casino markets as early as this year, with Singapore set to take the No. 2 spot from Las Vegas, a U.S. gambling industry group said Tuesday. Frank Fahrenkopf, president of the American Gaming Association, said Singapore raked in $5.1 billion in gaming revenue

last year and could bring in up to $6.4 billion this year. The citystate opened its first two casinos last year. Las Vegas, which lost its No. 1 spot to Macau in 2006, earned $5.8 billion in casino revenue last year, but is a mature market with little potential for big growth. Fahrenkopf made the prediction at the start of a gambling industry conference in Macau. “It’s going to be an extremely good year,” in Singapore and Macau, he said. Casino revenue in Macau will probably grow 25 to 50 percent this year, Fahrenkopf said.

NASDAQ - 1.00 2,701.56

Gambling revenue in Macau, the world’s most lucrative gambling market, hit $23.5 billion last year and monthly revenue has grown by at least 42 percent from February to May. Fahrenkopf warned that Macau faces several problems that could put a damper on continued growth, including a labor shortage and lack of infrastructure as well as a government cap on the number of new gambling tables until 2013. A possible crackdown on socalled junket operators could also limit expansion, he said. High-

rollers from mainland China coming to Macau on junkets are a big source of cash for casinos, accounting in some cases for up to 70 percent of revenues. Fahrenkopf said the government may change the way junkets operate, which would create uncertainty for casino companies in Macau that have stock listings in Hong Kong or the United States. “One thing that investors don’t like is uncertainty.

Americans borrow more

Americans borrowed more money in April for the seventh straight month, but they cut back on using their credit cards. The Federal Reserve says consumer borrowing rose by nearly $7.2 billion, fueled by greater demand for school and auto loans. A category that measures credit card use fell for the second time in three months. It has risen only twice since August 2008 — the height of the financial crisis. High unemployment, steep gas prices and a weak housing market have forced people to resist paying with plastic. The report includes auto loans, student loans and credit cards, but excludes mortgages and loans tied to real estate.

Europe’s rates might rise

The European Central Bank is expected to signal on Thursday that it will raise interest rates in July, underlining its determination to fight inflation as most of Europe enjoys strong growth despite the debt troubles afflicting Greece, Ireland and Portugal. The debt crisis and worries of a global slowdown may ultimately restrain how far the ECB can raise its key rate going into next year. But for now, the eurozone’s chief monetary authority is worried that steep oil and food prices will build up inflation expectations and is seen hiking rates at least twice by year-end from the current 1.25 percent. The ECB raised rates in April for the first time in three years.

Nortel auctioning patents

One of the more intriguing auctions scheduled later this month won’t involve fine art or vintage sports cars or other expensive trinkets, but it is expected to attract some deep pockets. The bankrupt telecommunications company Nortel Networks is selling a cache of patents that cover a wide range of technologies used in wireless phones and infrastructure, Internet search and social networking. Google Inc., whose Android software is used in smartphones made by Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc., set the opening bid for the private auction at $900 million.

HICKSHINNY -- The Pine Cone restaurant is the culmination of Angela and David Kaczmarczyk’s dreams as well as a tie to their pasts. The husband and wife from Hunlock Creek opened the Pine Cone last month on the site of a restaurant of the same name that stood in Shickshinny for 40 years. Dale Soltz of Shickshinny owned and ran the original Pine Cone, but closed it when he retired several years ago. Angela and David are currently leasing the Pine Cone from building owner Harry Baluski as they make payments toward the purchase price of $200,000. “(Dale) built a legend here, and we wanted to bring that back,” Angela said. David described coming to eat at the Pine Cone before and after fishing trips with his family as a child. Back then, he had an intuitive feeling about the restaurant.

“I would tell people, ‘Someday I’m gonna own that place,’ ” David recalled. “Every person who came to visit us over the past couple of years said we should open our own restaurant. So we took the dive and went for it,” Angela said. “Because of the history of this place, and in respect to Dale, we asked him if it was OK if we reopened the Pine Cone.” Soltz gave his blessing. The couple’s past experience prepared them to run a restaurant. Angela worked as a waitress in college and graduate school, then became a project manager for Internet companies MCI WorldCom and Cisco. “That gave me lots of experience

that I use to manage the restaurant,” Angela said. David, who has a certificate in horticulture and turf grass from Luzerne County Community College, has big plans for the exterior of the Pine Cone. In addition to doing some of the cooking inside the restaurant, he intends to handle the landscaping outside, including a nature trail behind the building. Customer Dwayne Stantkowski of Wilkes-Barre, who was enjoying his visit Tuesday, recalled visiting the original Pine Cone 25 years ago. “Glad to see it’s open again,” he said. “Good restaurants are getting scarcer and scarcer because of the cost of food.” The menu consists of burgers, sandwiches, steaks, omelets, chicken wings and soft ice cream. Although it officially opened for business May 4, the restaurant’s grand opening will be held June 17-19. At every meal, customers will be given the opportunity to spin a wheel and win prizes such as free meals, desserts and gift certificates.

Nintendo shows off touchscreen successor to Wii

By DERRIK J. LANG AP Entertainment Writer

OPEC is split on increasing its output

LOS ANGELES — Nintendo has introduced the world to the Wii’s touchy new big brother: the Wii U. The Japanese gaming giant on Tuesday unveiled the Wii video game console’s successor, which will broadcast high-definition video and fea-

ture a touchscreen controller that can detect motion and interact with what appears on a television display. “Up until now, home console games had to occupy the TV screen in order to be played,” said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. “The new controller for Wii U, with its 6.2-inch screen built in,

means you won’t need to give up your gameplay when someone else comes in the room and wants to watch a TV program.” The white touchscreen controller, reminiscent of Apple Inc.’s iPad and other tablet computers, can broadcast standard-definition video but also features a directional

pad, microphone, dual analog sticks, speakers, two pairs of shoulder buttons and a frontfacing camera, which can be used to make video calls. The console itself will use proprietary high-definition optical discs, 1080p HDMI output and internal memory that can be upgraded with USB and SD technology.

VIENNA — Mideast turmoil, a faltering world economy and divisions on whether to raise crude production promise to make today’s OPEC meeting one of the more volatile in recent history. In the end, the 12-nation group will probably opt to increase output levels to reduce international concerns about the high price of oil. But some influential members are looking to raise the cost of crude. Indirectly endorsing lower prices, Angolan Oil Minister Jose Maria Bothelo de Vasconselos told reporters Tuesday his country could accept an OPEC decision to raise output targets, “if the market needs more oil.” Iraqi oil minister Abdul-Karim Elaibi differed, saying a price of between $100 and $120 a barrel is “reasonable.” That level is at or above present prices and is considered too high by major oil-consuming countries struggling with their economies. And it goes against efforts by OPEC kingpin Saudi Arabia to push prices downward. OPEC oil ministers usually face easier choices at the regular meetings, where they seek agreement on how much to pump and sell to the rest of the world. But the mixed signals ahead of today’s session are making decisions difficult. The unrest in Libya and Yemen threatens to destabilize larger oilproducing nations in the region. The two countries normally produce less than 4 percent of the world’s oil needs, and Saudi Arabia and others have boosted output to make up for much of the shortfall. But worries that the violence could spread to bigger producers and seriously cut into world output has caused jitters, both from crude exporting nations and from the U.S., China and other consumers with huge energy needs. Kuwait’s oil minister, Mohammed al-Busairi said, markets are being “hugely affected” by the unrest in Libya, in an interview with the official Kuwait news agency KUNA and Kuwait TV. The shaky state of the global economy is another wild card in this week’s talks.

Warming up to natural gas

Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Spectra Energy has become a good buy because of the low price of natural gas and the company’s growth. Spectra has 19,000 miles of pipelines that pass by many of the large emerging gas fields in the U.S. It also has 40,600 miles of pipeline that reach into some of the biggest population centers, like New York City. Financial analysts say the network is impossible to duplicate because of its size and reach. Demand for natural gas is growing, partly because new finds in the U.S. have kept the price low. Natural gas has traded around $4 per thousand cubic feet over the past 14 months. Over much of the last decade it averaged $6 to $8 with periodic spikes over $12. Bentek Energy predicts natural gas use by electric

utilities will grow 15 percent by 2016 as power producers switch from coal. Gas makes it easier for utilities to comply with clean air rules. And the chemicals industry is growing because of cheap gas. It’s an important component of plastics, fertilizer and fabrics. Spectra has invested in 10 projects like line extensions and storage and processing facilities worth $3.9 billion. It may invest another $5 billion in projects by 2015. Spectra doesn’t build pipelines until it has orders from utilities and other customers to fill them. So analysts say its growth isn’t risky. They expect earnings to rise 12 percent this year. Another reason analysts like it: Spectra pays a 26cent quarterly dividend, which yields about 4 percent at the current stock price of $26.96.

Record high temperatures will be challenged this afternoon as readings soar into the 90s. Unlike Tuesday, when a wealth of high clouds covered the region through the early afternoon, today’s skies should be hazy but mostly clear. A stray shower may pop up across the mountains late in the day, but most areas will stay dry. The record high at the WilkesBarre/Scranton International Airport is 92 degrees, set recently, back in 2007. All this heat has been building in parts of the Southeast and Midwest, and it will finally close in on our region in the coming days. Relief in the form of a cold front arrives late Thursday, but that may stall out, providing only minimal relief into the weekend. -Ryan Coyle

Grilled tuna brings flavor to cookout

S

wimsuit season is here, so we understand that putting down a 3 ½-pound plate of ice cream or an extra-extra-large pile of fried foods isn’t exactly the wisest move, for health and aesthetic reasons. But in this prime vacation season, those of us who can will go somewhere and those of who can’t might be content to stay home glued to the Travel Channel, where Adam Richman has made “Man Vs. Food” one of the most talked-about shows For a video of a brave in years. soul (or Richman traverses the country on a hunt for espe- souls) trying to finish off cially large and unusual dishes served in local restau- a Fat Charrants, and many of us watch in shock and awe as he is ley, visit www.times(or isn’t) able to manhandle the most eye-popping leader.com. concoctions. On the passing thought that Richman might someday make his way to NEPA, we sent a woman, features writer Sara Pokorny, to seek out and dig into some of the most extreme local plates. She settled on four and is here to tell you she finished three. She just couldn’t polish off The Fat Charley, delicious as she found it. Without further ado, here’s the scoop (or six) …

Sara Pokorny’s tastebuds are no stranger to unusual foods. Here she enjoys a bite of alligator while visiting the Lone Cabbage Fish Camp in Florida.

A FISH DISH THAT I really enjoy making is an Ahi tuna steak with a cucumber salsa and grilled tomato. This is a great dish to use at a backyard cookout when you want to give your guests a little something different. It combines a wonderful fish with some amazing flavors while using fresh vegetables and keeping it healthy as well. The preparation is minimal, and so is the cooking time, which makes this dish as pleasurable to prepare as it is to enjoy. If you’d rather not make it yourself, you can always call Vanderlyn’s Restaurant at 283-6260 and find out when this will be a featured item. ••• AHI TUNA WITH CUCUMBER SALSA AND GRILLED TOMATO

marshmallow crème, hot fudge, whipped cream, Maraschino cherries. This is the only official challenge of the group, and it dates to the ’60s. The Pig’s Dinner was most notably served at Grablick’s Dairy Bar in Pittston, and the Donut Hole has brought it back in a big way. "It weighs in at three and a half

pounds," owner Adriane Grube said. "The typical time to beat was around 40 minutes, but then a young guy came in here and finished it off in 10 minutes and three seconds," Grube said. That set the bar too high, so the board is now clean, with 59 minutes (our reporter’s time) the new number to beat. A winning eater leaves with no check, a

"When

towards the end you start to feel it." Krappa loves food so much he dreams about it. Good thing, because that’s how this dish came to be. "I was dreaming that I was making French toast for my kids, eating a doughnut, and then I just threw the doughnut in the batter," Krappa said. "The next morning I came in and said, ’Someone get me glazed doughnuts; I need to make a dish,’ and there

it was." The diner serves the dish with the option of strawberries or blueberries for toppings, but at home Krappa takes it as far as piling on ice cream. "There’s an endless amount of possibilities with this one," he said. "Who knows what I’ll do with it next?" Our advice: Go for a strawberry topping to help combat the constant sugar attack from the heavily glazed doughnuts.

T-shirt, skirmish paintball tickets and some unpleasant side effects. "I’ve seen it happen almost every time," Grube said. "When you hit 15 minutes, your face flushes, and by 30, your body is telling you to just knock it off." Our advice: Sip some water every now and again, and after you take that first bite, don’t look back.

we first started we went big, and we’ve been doing that ever since," owner David Joseph said. Several dishes on the menu come in above-average portions, but none quite matches up to the meat-lover’s paradise of The Ol’ 96er. "We have to stick a bamboo skewer through the middle to hold it all together," Joseph said. The colossal burger sends shockwaves through almost every table on which it’s placed. "I

laugh because very often we’ll bring the plate out, and the person eating it will immediately pull their cell phone out and take a picture, then send it to their friends." The dish is frequently ordered but rarely finished. That won’t stop Joseph and his kitchen crew from raising the bar one more time. "When we change menus again in the fall, we’re going to add a third burger with more cheese and more meat." Our advice: Bring a bib and ask for extra napkins because this thing is juicy.

This is the salsa to be used later. Coat the bottom of a shallow dish with olive oil. Place the tuna in the oil and add salt and pepper. Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the fresh juice over the tuna. Turn tuna over and do the same to the other side. Coat the half tomato in olive oil and add salt and pepper. Place the tuna steak on the grill at medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. This will result in a rare temperature, which is optimum for a fresh tuna steak. While the tuna is grilling, place the half tomato on the grill for 4 minutes. Place the grilled tuna and tomato on a serving plate. Put the salsa alongside or even on the tuna. Your tastebuds will enjoy the variety of flavors coming together!

FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

Served by: Ole Tyme Charley’s, River Street, Plains Township Price: $10.95 Consists of: 10 ounces of homemade buffalo bites tossed in homemade wing sauce of your choice, crispy seasoned waffle fries, beer-battered onion rings, cheese, diced bacon and jalapenos. Perhaps the most formidable foe of

the bunch, the Fat Charley is a four-pound plate that could stop the hungriest of eaters in their tracks. The dish is a mountain of appetizer favorites so big it needs to be served on a pizza tray. It’s also begging for someone to finish it. "We’ve been serving it since March, and only two people have

eaten the whole thing," owner Brian McDonald said. The Fat Charley isn’t an official challenge yet, but keep an eye on it. "It’s a challenge in its own right by word of mouth and people telling people to come in here and try to finish it," McDonald said. "We’re looking to make it official very soon, where you get it for free and get a T-shirt and maybe some other prizes if you put it down," McDonald said. Our advice: Bring a friend. Odds are you’ll need help.

Let arugula spice up your sandwiches, stir-fry or salads By JOAN OBRA McClatchy Newspapers

For a peppery bite in your food, it’s time to turn to arugula. This leafy green takes on a spicier character in the summer heat. And arugula’s firm leaves make it suitable for everything from salads to stir-fries. Here’s a quick guide to buying, storing and eating it: When shopping for arugula, look for firm, crisp leaves. “When you take a leaf and bend it, it will crack,” says farmer Lou Pasquale of Il Giardino Organico. When Pasquale is harvesting

arugula, he also looks for a deep green color and a nice scent. “Break it a little bit, and crush it with your finger,” Pasquale says. “It’s got its own definite aroma — something like an herb.” At home, wrap arugula in damp paper towels, tuck it in a plastic bag, then store in the refrigerator for up to a week. Or keep baby arugula in its plastic container for just a few days. When prepping it for a meal, discard any leaves that aren’t crisp and green. Trim off the stems, then dunk the leaves in a large bowl of cold water. Swish the leav-

es around to rid them of any grit, Aliza Green writes in “Field Guide to Produce: How to Identify, Select, and Prepare Virtually Every Fruit and Vegetable at the Market” (Quirk Books, $14.95). Gently spread the leaves out on paper towels to dry. Decide how to eat it. In southern Europe, arugula grows wild and is treated “like regular lettuce,” says Pasquale, who is Italian. “I eat it straight with olive oil and red wine vinegar.” He also eats it in pasta al verde, a mixture of hot pasta with olive oil, butter, chopped arugula and

parsley and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. At this time of year, the intensity of locally grown arugula may need to be tempered. In a sandwich, layer it with peaches and basil (for sweetness), goat cheese (for tangy flavor and creamy texture) and prosciutto (for salty meatiness). For a salad, dress it with lemon vinaigrette, then top it with slices of chicken and a reduction of balsamic vinegar and sweet cherries. Crostini with brie cheese adds crunch and creaminess.

Church teacher dodging offers for dates should say ‘never on Sunday’ Dear Abby: I am a 48-year-old single male. I teach an adult Sunday school class. Two women who have joined our group have made it plain they would like to have a romantic relationship with me. I’m not sure how to handle this. I’d like to meet someone special, too, but I’m not certain this is the right way. Please advise. — Troubled Teacher in the South Dear Troubled Teacher: Tell the women you have a policy that you do not date your students. To do otherwise would be distracting and disruptive to the class. Once they have

DEAR ABBY ADVICE “graduated,” there is nothing to stop you from dating both of them. One may turn out to be that someone special you have been looking for, but if she’s not, you’ll have saved everyone from unnecessary drama. Dear Abby: We are a gay couple who have been together for 37 years. We were recently invited to the wedding of a close nephew in San Antonio. The invitation was addressed to us both, and we flew 5,000 miles to attend. At the ceremony, my partner, “Alan,” was seated in front with the

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

groom’s family. While we were being shown to our seats, I was told by the groom’s father, “Sorry. You can sit somewhere else.” Alan and I were deeply offended. How should we express our displeasure and prevent this from happening again when the niece marries? Do we have a right to say anything? — Snubbed in Honolulu Dear Snubbed: Of course you do. The groom’s father was extremely rude to separate you. The person who issued the wedding invitation should be informed of how offensive it was. And if it happens again, the two of you should respond, “We are a couple, and we sit together.” Dear Abby: My wife is a cancer survi-

CRYPTOQUOTE

vor who is doing well. When a friend or relative learns she had cancer, a common response is, “Yeah, I knew someone who had the same kind of cancer. It was awful. It came back six months later and he/she died an agonizing, terrible death.” Abby, it’s hard to remain polite around such thoughtless, moronic individuals when they blurt out something like this in my wife’s presence. I can’t imagine the fear she must experience hearing such remarks. Can you offer an effective retort? — Baffled by the Ignorance Dear Baffled: Remarks such as you have described usually are made when people don’t know what to say, so they blurt out the first thing that comes to mind. A polite response

would be, “Thanks for your concern. My wife is doing great.” Of course the appropriate thing for friends and relatives to say would be, “I’m so glad you’re better — I care about you and I was worried.” To raise the subject of someone who died from the disease is inappropriate and extremely insensitive. There’s an old Portuguese proverb: Never mention a rope in the house of a man who has been hanged. It definitely applies here. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Bring your camera. It’s not for the big things. It’s for the little things — all the chatter and noise that fills up your life. Record it now, and appreciate it later. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have pulled yourself up by your own bootstraps in life, and you’re the best one for that job. But there comes a time when everyone needs a little help. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). With all you have going on in your life now, it’s a small miracle that you show up where you’re supposed to be on the right day and on time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will grow in power and love as you assess what is important to you and become aware of the price you are willing to pay to make this area of your life conform to your ideals. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You seldom wish you were another sign of the zodiac, and yet you’ll try on some of Capricorn’s powerful attributes today, namely a certain ease with managing people and money. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will work on problems from all angles now, including a subconscious angle. What you don’t acknowledge in your waking life, you’ll work through in your dreams. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be in a reflective mood. New reserves of energy open up as you tap into inner resources. These reserves can be accessed through meditation, dance, prayer, exercise or song. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your

best is usually good enough. Now it will be more than good enough. In fact, somebody will do a little jig in response to your efforts. It will feel terrific to bring about such happiness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may encounter some frustration because your sense of timing does not match the timing of another person or the world at large. In the end, your effort to relax and get in sync will be successful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The setting in which you see someone will have a significant impact on how you perceive and subsequently approach this person. Be bold, unfazed by glamorous illusions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because your influences and interests are so wide, you have a special knack for connecting with others on their own topics of interest. Share your relevant story, and you’ll be a hit. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll take control of a situation that is not technically your responsibility. You’ll do this because the one in charge seems unsure of what to do next, or because no one seems to be in charge at all. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 8). You’ll be grateful when one of your birthday wishes comes true in June, and that attitude is precisely what makes another wish come true in July. Artistic or athletic endeavors bring social status in October and May. November brings a windfall. Sagittarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 39 and 35.
