Officials’ goal: Get area to embrace waterway WILKES-BARRE – A variety of events again are planned for the River Common this year that will likely draw some crowds. There will be fireworks, concerts and even a Dragon Boat race. But the downtown park along the Susquehanna River often is nearly empty and even the park’s ardent supporters agree it’s still underused.

“Not many places have a park like the River Common,” said Carol Hussa, ACHIEVE project coordinator for the Wilkes-Barre YMCA, which is located a block from the River Common. “But we have a culture here of people not being physically active.

Peter Strecker is worried his son’s teacher might not notice a developmental issue if the teacher is burdened with a larger class and spends only half a day with his son. Helen Davis has the same fear for her daughter, who, like Strecker’s son, was set to start kindergarten at Rice Elementary School in the fall. Both parents plan to enroll their children in private schools if the Crestwood School Board decides to go ahead with plans to switch from full-day to halfday kindergarten as one of several measures to deal with reduced educational subsidies from the state. “I am not about to sacrifice my daughter’s education,” said Davis, 34, of Wright Township.

Administrators and school board members across the state have been spending the last few months trying to shore up their budgets in a number of ways after Gov. Tom Corbett presented a 201112 budget that reduces education funding by about $1 billion statewide compared to 2010-11 funding. Cuts planned locally In Luzerne County, some school boards have planned cuts to kindergarten and pre-school programs. Many don’t intend to replace a portion of retiring teachers and do anticipate furloughing some others who teach subjects in the arts and humanities. See SCHOOL, Page 16A

Walkers stretch it out before Saturday’s Breathe Deep Northeastern Pennsylvania Lung Walk at Kirby Park.

Entertainment for the Lung Walk was provided by recording artists Three Imaginary Boys, from WilkesBarre. “Pauline’s husband, Allan Makowski, was a dear friend and fishing buddy,” said Sam Greenberg of Kingston. “I see this as a great opportunity to make the community aware of lung cancer research and to remember those who have died from it.” According to the Centers

for Disease Control and Prevention, “more people in the United States die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. This is true for both men and women.” “It looks like the rain’s clearing, so I plan to enjoy the day with my family,” smiled Traci Weinstock from Old Forge. “My father’s on the planning committee with Pauline, and I wanted to support them today in any way I could.”

Rain or not, an enthusiastic crowd gathered at Kirby Park on Saturday to participate in the inaugural Breathe Deep Northeastern Pennsylvania Lung Walk, sponsored by LUNGevity, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to research for the early detection, treatment and cure of lung cancer. “We’re expected a fine turnout today,” said event organizer Pauline Makowski. “We have 137 pre-registered and we’re anticipating a number of day-of registrations, as well.” “My husband died of lung cancer in June of 2009 and I just felt I had to make a difference in some way,” continued Makowski. “So I did some research and decided the LUNGevity Foundation was the group I wanted to work with.” The course for the event led the blue T-shirt clad walkers through Kingston and Wilkes-Barre and back to the pavilion at Kirby Park where refreshments were served.

Parishioners of the church on North Main Street made a public plea to Bishop Joseph Bambera in a letter that appears in today’s Times Leader. But the diocese, which was provided a copy of the letter by the newspaper on Saturday, indicated it will stick to its decision. Sacred Heart, which also includes St. John the Evangelist in its parish, was among those listed for closing in the 2009 restructuring plan begun by former Bishop Joseph Martino. The Sacred Heart WilkesBarre Foundation, which came into existence before the restructuring was announced, appealed the closing to the Vatican’s Congregation for Clergy. Bishop Bambera, who succeeded Bishop Martino, said he would accept the restructuring plans, but also allowed the appeals to the Vatican to proceed. In February, the diocese’s decision to close Sacred Heart was upheld, prompting the foundation to mount another appeal, this time to the Apostolic Signatura, the highest court of the church. The diocese set June 19 for the closing of Sacred Heart and announced the formation of St. Andre Bessette parish. The new parish will be made up of members of Sacred Heart, Holy Saviour Church on Hillard Street and St. Stanislaus Kostka on North Main Street. In a prepared statement, Bishop Bambera said many of the members of the affected parishes “expressed a desire to move forward and a hope that they will soon have a peaceful environment where they can worship and pray together.”

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Police charged Shawn Bublo, 25, of Edwardsville, with multiple traffic violations following an apparent motor vehicle accident Saturday. Police said they found several downed utility poles and exploding transformers near a parked Chevrolet SUV with heavy front-end damage at the corner of North Penn Avenue and Butler Street at 1:03 a.m. Saturday. Police identified Bublo as the driver of the SUV. Police said they smelled alcohol on Bublo’s breath and found empty bottles of Twisted Tea, an alcoholic beverage, in the SUV. Police arrested Bublo on suspicion of driving under the influence, but a breath test found his blood alcohol content to be below the legal limit of .08 percent, leading police to drop the DUI charge. • Reginald Taylor, 29, of South Grant Street was charged with disorderly conduct Friday afternoon for allegedly refusing to comply with police orders to stop yelling in a public place on Carey Avenue. • Police cited Steven Dorsey, 32, of Edwardsville, and Rebecca Dorsey, 36, of Hanover Village, on charges they violated the city noise ordinance while on Beech Street at 6:05 a.m. Police said the Dorseys were arguing loudly on the street and that several residents in the area contacted police about the noise. • Police said someone smashed a window at Turkey Hill, 754 S. Main St. Saturday.

A grant will pay rent for seven chronically homeless who want a place to live for up to five years.

HAZLETON

District on four-day week

Luzerne County government is looking for seven chronically homeless people who want a place to live, and the federal government will pay the rent for up to five years. The funding comes from a $370,140 grant the county received last year as part of the federal government’s push to get people into permanent housing. The program, known as Shelter Plus Care, is designed to provide long-term housing and supportive services for hard-to-reach homeless people with disabilities, such as mental illnesses or ongoing problems with drugs and/or alcohol, Program is according to the federdesigned to al government. provide longIn recent weeks, the term housing plight of the Wyoming and support- Valley homeless has received more public ative services tention with the death for homeless of two men in an abanpeople with doned South WilkesBarre house that disabilities, caught fire. such as menIn addition, REACH, tal illnesses a drop-in center for the homeless operating or ongoing out of St. Stephen’s problems with Episcopal Church in drugs and/or Wilkes-Barre, is closalcohol. ing in July. The government generally defines a chronically homeless person as a disabled person who has either been continuously homeless for a year or more or has had at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years. County Human Services fiscal officer Mary Dysleski said three homeless individuals are in apartments funded by the program, and a fourth placement is in the works. The funding was intended to assist 11 individuals. Signing up additional participants has been a challenge because the county must obtain some documentation that candidates meet the chronically homeless definition, Dysleski said. “It’s easy if they stay at a shelter because they’re in contact with the shelter every day, but how do you verify that someone was living under a bridge or on the streets?” Dysleski said. Representatives of shelters that service the county are on a panel that meets monthly to monitor program participants, Dysleski said. Involving homeless shelters encourages referrals to the program, Dysleski said. The Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO), which administers the

PLAINS TWP. – Area cancer survivors and their loved ones gathered at the Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Saturday afternoon for the Cancer Survivor Day celebration. “The theme of today’s event is ‘celebrate life,’” said event organizer Mary Ann Olenick. The Swoyersville native and senior administrative assistant has organized the event for the past seven years. She expected around 400 people to attend the family event which featured food,

games, basket raffles, face painting, a bouncy place and free massages as well as music from DJ Nancy Kman of WILK radio station. Olenick, who had three family members diagnosed with cancer in a 14 month span 17 years ago, was chiefly

concerned with setting a positive tone for the event. “Every year we come out, we have some food, we dance and we have fun,” she said. See SURVIVOR, Page 15A

Deadly month for civilians

WASHINGTON — Under pressure to resign in a sexting scandal, Rep. Anthony Weiner announced Saturday he was entering professional treatment at an undisclosed location and requested a leave of absence from Congress. An aide for the embattled New York lawmaker made the disclosure in a statement shortly after several Democratic party leaders demanded he quit for exchanging messages and photos ranging from sexually suggestive to explicit with several women online. “This sordid affair has become an un-

acceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the party chairwoman, said in a written statement calling for the 46-year-old married lawmaker lawmaker to step down. The House Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, said Weiner “has the love of his family, the confidence of his constituents and the recognition that he needs help. I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a member of Congress.” Weiner’s spokeswoman, Risa Heller, said in the statement that the congressman departed during the morning “to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person. In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the

House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well.” The statement did not say where he would receive treatment, or what type was involved. Others familiar with his plans said he had left New York by air. Also joining in calls for Weiner to quit was Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and a member of the party’s leadership. Pelosi also spoke with Weiner during the day to let him know that she, too, would be joining the calls for resignation. The developments occurred one day after Weiner acknowledged he had exchanged online messages with a 17year-old girl in Delaware. He said nothing improper had passed between the two of them.

Chemicals added to cancer risk list

AND THE WINNER BY A NOSE …

t least 21 people were killed in a series of attacks across Afghanistan A on Saturday as a U.N. agency announced that May had been the deadliest month for Afghan civilians since 2007. At least 15 civilians, including children and women, were killed when their crowded minivan struck a landmine in the restive province of Kandahar. The dead were eight children, four women and three men; another woman was injured. Kandahar is a southern province that’s known as the birthplace of the Taliban movement. It shares a border with the Baluchistan province of neighboring Pakistan, which is believed to be the safe haven for the Taliban leader Mulllah Omar and other senior commanders.

Wildfires pose health threat

An eye-stinging haze of smoke spewing from a gigantic wildfire in eastern Arizona added a potentially serious public health threat to the conflagration on Saturday as firefighters moved to counter spot fires erupting across the state line in New Mexico. The 640-square-mile blaze remained largely uncontained and firefighters worried that a predicted return of gusty southwesterly winds in the afternoon would cause it to grow even larger. “We expect the winds to be testing a lot of our lines out there,” fire spokeswoman Karen Takai said. The fire began spotting across the state line Friday night and 150 additional firefighters and several fire engines were sent to bolster forces already waiting in New Mexico, officials said. Concern about hazardous levels of air pollution spread beyond northeastern Arizona. PESHAWAR, PAKISTAN

Two explosions kill 25

Two explosions went off minutes apart in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar Sunday, killing 25 people and injuring nearly 100, officials said. The blasts occurred just after midnight in an area of the city that is home to political offices and army housing. The first explosion was relatively small and drew police and rescue workers to the site, said Dost Mohammed, a senior local police official. A large explosion rocked the area a few minutes later, causing the fatalities and injuring 95 people, said Mohammed Farooq, a doctor at a local hospital. The attack took place as CIA Director Leon Panetta and Afghan President Hamid Karzai were in Islamabad, some 95 miles (150 kilometers) from Peshawar, to speak separately with senior Pakistani officials about intelligence sharing and efforts to reconcile with the Taliban. TOKYO

Rally against nuclear power

Protesters held mass demonstrations against nuclear power across Japan on Saturday, the three-month anniversary of the powerful earthquake and tsunami that killed over 23,000 and triggered one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters. Streets in parts of Tokyo were completely jammed with thousands of chanting protesters, paralyzing sections of the city. Some marchers called for the country’s nuclear plants to be shut down immediately and for stricter radiation tests by the government. The magnitude-9 earthquake that hit March 11 off Japan’s northeast coast caused a massive tsunami that devastated the coastline.

Suspect in embassy blasts killed Local men view the dead body of Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, front right, and another unidentified man in Mogadishu, Somalia. A Somali official says the al-Qaida operative behind the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania was killed in a shootout with Somali government forces Tuesday.

By MALKHADIR M. MUHUMED Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya — The al-Qaida operative behind the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania has been killed, a Somali official said Saturday. Somali officials have determined that a man killed by security forces on Tuesday was Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, said a spokesman for Somalia’s minister of information, Abdifatah Abdinur. “We’ve compared the pictures of the body to his old pictures,” he said. “They are the same. It is confirmed. He is the man and he is dead. The man who died is Fazul Abdullah.” Mohammed, a native of the Comoros Islands, was on the FBI’s most-wanted terrorist list and had a $5 million bounty on his head for allegedly planning the Aug. 7, 1998, embassy bombings. The blasts killed 224 people in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania combined. Most of the dead were Kenyans. Twelve Americans also died.

A senior Obama administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters, said Mohammed was killed in a shootout with Somali government forces. “This is a big win for global counterterrorism efforts,” the official said.

“We commend the good work by the (Somali government forces),” the official added. “This is a very big deal. Fazul’s death removes one of the terrorist group’s most experienced operational planners in East Africa and has almost certainly set back operations.”

WASHINGTON — The strong-smelling chemical formaldehyde causes cancer, while styrene, a second industrial chemical that’s used worldwide in the manufacture of fiberglass and food containers, may cause cancer, the National Institutes of Health says. The NIH said Friday that people with higher measures of exposure to formaldehyde are at increased risk for certain types of rare cancers, including those affecting the upper part of the throat behind the nose. The chemical is widely used to make resins for household items, including paper product coatings, plastics and textile finishes. It also is commonly used as a preservative in medical laboratories, mortuaries and consumer products including some hair straightening products. The government says styrene is a component of tobacco smoke, and NIH says the greatest exposure to the chemical is through cigarette smoking. The two chemicals were among eight added to the government’s list submitted to Congress of chemicals and biological agents that may put people at increased risk of for cancer. Also on the list as a known carcinogen is a botanical agent called aristolochic acids, shown to cause high rates of bladder or upper urinary tract cancer in people with kidney or renal disease.

2008 emails show Palin eyeing VP slot By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

JUNEAU, Alaska — Much of the country was taken by surprise when Sarah Palin became the Republican vice presidential candidate in August 2008, but newly released emails show the littleknown Alaska governor was angling for the slot months before Sen. John McCain asked her to join him on the GOP ticket. Earlier that summer, Palin and her

staff began pushing to find a larger audience for the governor, nudging the McCain campaign to notice her. Palin and her staff talked excitedly on June 19 about plans to repeal Alaska’s fuel tax. Ivy Frye, a longtime Palin aide and friend, said she would send details to McCain staffers when they became available. “They’re going to love it!” Frye wrote. “More vp talk is never a bad thing,

whether you’re considering vp or not. I still say President Palin sounds better tho ... " The emails showed that supporters across the country began suggesting to Palin that she would be a good vice presidential candidate as early as April. That attention increased after she appeared AP PHOTO on conservative commentator Glenn Beck’s “Headline News” show on CNN in Boxes containing Sarah Palin’s emails are seen Friday in Juneau, Alaska. early June.

in the coming days in closed-door talks with their fellow Republicans in the House and governor’s office. “That will be an element of discussion that we have with the House and the governor,” Pileggi said. Pileggi would not say how much more money Senate Republicans will seek. Poorer school districts typically get a larger portion of their budgets from the state than

wealthier districts based on a formula developed by the Legislature that determines how the money is divided among school districts, The formula is designed to help districts that simply cannot raise as much from local taxes and that have higher poverty rates. But the distribution of money also must meet the political test of legislative approval. That means that some school districts get more money than they other-

wise would under the formula — a total of nearly $400 million extra over the past decade that the Philadelphia-based nonprofit Education Law Center of Pennsylvania says would have gone to poorer or needier districts. The issue is complicated, said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Jake Corman, RCentre. A number of legislators who represent wealthier, growing suburban school districts are unhap-

py every year because the amount of state aid they get, while increasing in total dollars, is shrinking as a percentage of the school district’s budget. As a result, it would be tough for those legislators and school districts to accept disproportionately sized cuts in state aid, Corman said. “The school funding formula is very difficult,” he said. “I don’t know that anyone particularly likes it, but nobody knows how to change it to make it better.”

ROME — Lady Gaga sang a few bars of her smash hit “Born This Way” and demanded the end of discrimination against gays as she proclaimed herself a “child of diversity” at a gay pride rally Saturday night in the ancient Circus Maximus. The star, whose “Born This Way” album recently topped 1 million sales in a week, delighted tens of thousands of people at a brief concert in the vast field where the ancient Roman masses would gather for spectacles. Wearing a green wig, she played the piano and sang a few numbers. But she devoted much of her appearance after an annual European gay pride parade to denounce intolerance and discrimination against gays and transgender people. Among the places she cited was the Middle East, Poland, Russia and Lithuania. Lady Gaga told the crowd she is often asked “How gay are you, Lady Gaga?” “My answer is: ’I am a child of diversity.”’ She also proudly cited her Italian roots — saying she was really named Stefania Giovanna Angelina Germanotta. And she told fans her costume — a sleek black top with one bare shoulder and billowing plaid skirt — were from the last collection of Gianni Versace. Decrying intolerance of homosexuality, Lady Gaga lamented that young people who are gay are susceptible to “suicide, selfloathing, isolation.” Many in the crowd had participated in an hours-long parade of colorful floats and brightly costumed marchers through Rome’s historic center before the rally. The events were part of the annual Europride day to encourage gay rights on the continent. Lady Gaga praised her audience for its “great courage” which she says inspires her. Europride organizers hope the event will draw attention to discrimination gays face in many parts of the world. The U.S. ambassador was among those who invited Lady Gaga to Rome.

“I am so honored to be here,” Lady Gaga said, recalling how, earlier in the day, she lay naked in silk sheets in her Lady Gaga hotel room and enjoyed the din of adoring fans and packs of photographers in the street below. Organizers said Rome was a significant choice of venue, since it is home to the Vatican, which staunchly opposes legislation that would recognize same-sex marriage or adoption by gay couples.

The dragons are coming – boats, that is 48 boats to enter.” RiverFest organizers hope Cotrone talked about Rivertheir extravaganza will bring a Fest and how it has changed in new attitude toward the river. 12 years. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – On a recent visit to the city, Vincent Cotrone’s brother-in-law wanted to see the River Common park. Cotrone is director of the annual RiverFest celebration, so he gladly showed the venue that is home to the 12th annual event. “He was absolutely amazed,” Cotrone said of his brother-inlaw’s reaction. “He said L.A. has nothing like this. He’s been gone from this area for 25 years, and he couldn’t believe this park was in Wilkes-Barre.” Cotrone, 45, said sometimes it takes an outsider’s perception for “hometowners” to appreciate what they have. Maybe a Dragon Boat Race will make people notice. Each of the long boats is powered by a team of 15 to 20 paddlers. Teams are being recruited for friendly competition. The event has become very popular elsewhere and Cotrone said a Dragon Boat Festival – a separate event – is planned for 2012, probably in September when the college students are back in school. “This will be a demonstration to Wyoming Valley and its people that we can do this,” Cotrone said. “Next year we expect

“We’re still evolving,” Cotrone said. “But when we moved to the River Common we ramped things up for RiverFest and it got bigger. We’re still learning how to program both sides of the river during the course of the three days.” Cotrone, an urban forester with Penn State Cooperative Extension, said the River Common gives RiverFest “the perfect spot.” He said for events like the Dragon Boat Race, the vantage points for viewing are plentiful. Cotrone said the mission of RiverFest remains constant – to get people to use the river and understand it and value it as a resource and not just look at it as a potential flood menace. Karl Borton Jr., director of River Common Programming and Outreach, said the Susquehanna River offers boating, fishing and, in some parts, swimming. “It’s an asset that we often overlook and it’s something that we should embrace and celebrate,” Borton said. “RiverFest is just one way that we are highlighting the river and its importance to our region.” RiverFest will be held Father’s Day Weekend – June 17, 18, 19 – and is expected to attract thousands of people to celebrate, as Cotrone says, the Susquehanna River. Activities available include: kayaking, environmental

and educational workshops, live music and handcrafted artistry. Performers this year include Eddie Day and the Star Fires, MiZ, George Wesley, Don Shappelle and the Pick-Ups, K8, Kriki and Without Walls Dance Com-

pany. Cotrone is passionate about RiverFest. He exudes confidence and joy when he talks of the three-day event and how it continues to grow. Cotrone said there will be more activities and

more food vendors this year. Food will be available along River Street across from Millennium Circle and in Nesbitt Park near the kayak launch. “I urge everyone to take a kayak trip,” Cotrone said. “We have

trips of varying distances – shorter ones for first-time kayakers.” Cotrone said RiverFest offers something for everyone. “And I hope everyone comes out,” he said.

By switching the name from a “publishing company” to a “media company,” he said, the company has created “more of a

She said it didn’t take her long to notice the lack of public recycle bins in the city. She thought if they were installed, the city would be cleaner and more appealing, especially in the public recreation areas. City Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin said officials will meet with Hughes and other PennFuture representatives to discuss the proposal. “The city has been looking at placing recycling containers on Public Square and River Common due to the increased activity coming up,” McLaughlin said. “We have to iron out a few issues – financing the containers and deciding who will handle them and the frequency of pickup.” McLaughlin said planning is under way and the city “definitely wants to get this done.” He said the city hasn’t gotten any cost estimates as yet for the containers. Hughes said she has muddled through the process of finding the right people to propose her idea to.

Hughes said she identified the main issue as the lack of funding to provide the receptacles and she intends to discuss the issue at a meeting this week. “If money was raised alternatively, would the city have the workforce and resources to pick up and maintain the additional bins?” she asked. Hughes said there are several local groups, businesses and organizations that are willing to help make the project happen. She said if the bins are purchased, there may be a need for private investment of some kind. She said PennFuture feels that working with the local groups and businesses in a joint campaigning effort to fund-raise money and also raise awareness throughout the community is important. “Recycling should be a standard behavior for everyone in our city and with a communityled approach, we could reach our goal,” Hughes said.

21st century connotation.” Mellon said that shedding the image — whether accurate or not — of being just a publishing company will help let businesses and readers know that there’s more to the company than newsprint and ink. And the new name, he added, will go a long way toward “helping to build better relationships with your customers by telling them what you have to offer them beyond a hard-copy newspaper.” The Times Leader has been publishing a daily newspaper since 1907. Through numerous changes and owners, it once again became the Wilkes-Barre Publishing Company in 2006.

The company has long been recognized for its award-winning journalism, and more recently for its record-breaking audience growth, ranked ninth in the nation and second in the state by The Audit Bureau of Circulations. Besides publishing newspapers, including The Times Leader, the Weekender, the Sunday Dispatch, Go Lackawanna, The Abington Journal, The Dallas Post and El Mensajero, the company operates numerous media websites and also offers commercial printing and packaging services along with its numerous digital marketing solutions for local businesses.

Fewer children in Pennsylvania census presents challenge to colleges, universities By GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — The collective graying of Pennsylvania’s population presents a demographic challenge for colleges and universities. Recently released 2010 census

figures showed the commonwealth’s population getting older, with the median age pushing past 40 as the first baby boomers reach retirement age. The flip side to the trend: fewer children. There were more than 2.7 mil-

lion Pennsylvania residents younger than 18 in 2010, down about 4 percent from 2.9 million a decade earlier, according to the Census Bureau. There were also fewer residents age 10-14 in 2010, and the percentage of homes with children also decreased.

The stats offer colleges a peek of what’s to come. Trends from the 2010 census echo similar trends from the 2000 count and earlier surveys that had caught the attention of higher education leaders, who have responded by seeking more out-of-state stu-

dents, including from overseas, and expanding efforts aimed at “nontraditional” students. David Kuskowski, director of marketing and recruitment for undergraduate admissions at Penn State, pointed to the northeastern and southwestern parts

of the state as areas of aging, as well as a few pockets of growth among younger residents, such as the Pittsburgh suburb of Cranberry Township. “We have seen it coming, and we are expecting not to see it improve,” Kuskowski said.

walking for exercise.” Hussa said too many people look for negatives, like worrying that they will get hit by a car if they try to cross River Street to get to the park. “I’m confident it will all be good some day,” she said. “Rome wasn’t built in a day. The city has pulled itself up by the bootstraps, and people will discover this park and use it.” Getting the community to embrace the River Common has been a difficult sell. People like Jim Brozena, executive director of the Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority and the engineer who devised incorporating a riverfront park into the flood protection system, has visions of the park becoming a place people flock to every day. “We want to be able to attract local people and people from New York City, Philadelphia and other places,” Brozena said. “We want to grow the park by holding quality events and also raise awareness of how the park improves the quality of our lives.” Cherrypicking ideas Brozena and Karl Borton, director of River Common Programming and Outreach, look to Hartford, Conn., -- where hundreds of thousands of people visit annually -- as an example of what they see the River Common evolving into. They said more than 160,000 people visited the River Common in 2010 and their goal for 2011 is to break the 200,000 mark. “We have looked at Hartford and smaller venues like Sunbury, Williamsport, Lock Haven and Harrisburg, and we’re cherrypicking the best ideas offered at each and we intend to offer them A B O U T R I V E R here,” Brozena said. “What will C O M M O N the River Common become?

She said the goal is to get people to become more physically active. Hussa recently returned from a trip to Florence, Italy, and she said she came back with a renewed sense of pride in Wilkes-Barre and the River Common Park. “Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing so many concerts and events on the river,” she said. “But I want people to view the

park as a valuable and usable resource.” Parking concerns Brozena said many people have been reluctant to park downtown and walk a few blocks to the River Common. He said that mentality needs to be changed. “There are plenty of parking venues in the city,” Brozena said. “And when people park and walk to the park and then back, city businesses will benefit as well.

dmund Frank Gilroy, 59, of Dallas, passed away early Friday E morning, June 10, 2011, at his home

following a long and courageous battle with esophageal cancer. Born in Wilkes-Barre on April 8, 1952, he was a son of Edmund Gilroy, of Wilkes-Barre, and Nancy (Miller) Scalfer, of Wilkes-Barre, and he had attended E.L. Meyers High School. Ed was the owner and operator of Gilroy Construction Co. for over 40 years. He was a member of the BIA of NEPA and the Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce. Enjoying life to the fullest, Ed was fortunate enough to travel and explore many parts of the world. He was a loyal Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankee fan. For many years, you would see Ed playing softball, shooting pool or riding his Harley-Davidson. The dearest to us never really leave. Ed will always be with us; the way he cared, shared and made us happy. Ed affected us all in different ways; as a teacher and mentor. We will never be able to tell where his influence stops. Ed was preceded in death by his stepmother, Betty Gilroy; by his stepfather, Thomas Scalfer; as well as by his maternal grandparents, Noval and Pearl Wilson; and paternal grandparents, Edmund and Theresa Gilroy; and a brother-in-law James Bono. Ed is survived by his loving wife, Carol, Dallas; mother Nancy Scalfer, Wilkes-Barre; father Edmund Gilroy, Wilkes-Barre; daughter Alyson Graham and her husband, P.J., Wilkes-Barre; son Edmund Gilroy

Her sentiments were echoed by the event’s speaker, ovarian cancer survivor Karen Riley. “A little bit of rain, dark clouds and thunderstorms will not dampen our spirits,” she said as she enthusiastically addressed the crowd. The 61-year-old Scranton native who now resides in White Haven was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in October 2009. After undergoing chemotherapy for 18 months, she was clear of the disease. Her catscans have since repeatedly come back with clear results.

She emphasized the recycling collection provides an opportunity for residents to get rid of unwanted electronics at no charge.

Recipients of the free rent must agree to participate in programs that address their disabilities and prepare them for independence, Dysleski said. “We’re watching over them.

Appealing to landlords County officials believe that landlords are more willing to rent to the homeless if they’re assured the county will be monitoring the

She acknowledged there is a chance t the disease could return but pointed out the possibility of that happening does not enter her mindset. Riley, who lost her mother to breast cancer 40 years ago, was generous with advice for people who are dealing with the disease for the first time. “Always be positive,” she said. “Have faith in your doctors, in your family and in a spiritual being.” Riley repeatedly emphasized the importance of getting to know hospital staff when being treated for cancer. “Come to your doctor prepared and ask all of the questions you can think of. And trust your nurses; they are the best resource you will have,” Riley said. Dr. Kyo Chu, a surgical oncolowithout paying a landfill fee. Another man who drove 20 miles from Salem Township admitted he believes he is helping keep the environment clean. DeNardi said Luzerne County is one of the few remaining in Pennsylvania able to provide the service through funding from grant money through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, from funds raised through the county’s recycling service fees and by sponsorship funds from the Electronic Manufacturers Recycling Management Company.

The grant will pay up to $529 per month in rent for a one-bedroom unit, Dysleski said. That dollar amount is set by the federal government. Participants may find their own apartments, though the dwellings must meet inspection guidelines. People interested in the program must fill out an application at CEO, which is located at 165 Amber Lane in Wilkes-Barre. Dysleski said she is confident the remaining slots will be filled. “I think they’re out there. It’s just doing the verification that’s difficult,” she said. Some eligible people also may not want to be helped, she said. “One of those pills that’s hard to swallow is that some don’t want to participate, and you can’t force them to do it, even though you know it would be beneficial to them,” Dysleski said.

Center and others like it, for being places where many different teams of doctors approach cancer from differing perspectives and varying philosophies. Chu also drew attention to the importance of regular screenings

and attention to symptoms for the general population. “The earlier the cancer is detected, the better the chance for someone like me to remove it and the better the chance for survival,” he said.

AN OPEN MESSAGE TO BISHOP BAMBERA Most Reverend Joseph C. Bambera, J.C.L., D.D. Bishop of Scranton Your Excellency, You have decided to close Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, North Main Street, Wilkes-Barre, after the 2 P.M. Sunday Mass on June 19, 2011. Recently faithful parishioners of Sacred Heart/St. John Parish exercised their right under Canon Law to continue the appeal process by petitioning the Congregation for the Clergy at the Vatican to suspend your intention to suppress the Sacred Heart/St. John Parish and close the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church. Parishioners have repeatedly requested that you keep your well publicized policy of not closing churches or suppressing parishes while an appeal is pending before the Congregation for the Clergy. Any unwillingness on your part to suspend the suppression of the parish and closure of the church would bode the question: “What’s the rush?”, since this action would undermine the authority of the Congregation for the Clergy by irreparably altering the parish and the church. Since the church is scheduled to be padlocked on June 19, 2011, the parishioners are publicly urging you as trustee of our parish property to: 1) maintain Sacred Heart of Jesus Church as a Worship Site; 2) protect the church, its contents and other parish property; and 3) not to give away or sell the church or other parish properties, nor any of its contents including the artwork and artifacts, until the parishioners’ appeal process is concluded at the Vatican. This faithful parish community has made significant contributions to the diocese and community throughout its 115 year history including exceptional financial support of Catholic education, community service, and an abundance of religious vocations. To allow the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church to remain open as a worship site until the Vatican can rule on our appeal is not an unreasonable request, considering the exemplary and prominent history of this parish. Thank you for your consideration, Faithful Parishioners of Sacred Heart/St. John Parish

When it comes to school athletics, the ways in which students will feel budget cuts this school year will vary from district to district, school to school and sport to sport. In Wilkes-Barre Area, for example, seventh- and eighth-grade sports will be folded into junior high school sports. At Meyers High School, Athletic Director Mike Namey said, cuts would mainly affect the basketball program. But seventhand eighth-grade players “would not be denied any experiences on a junior high athletic team. They would still be a part of that.” Still, Namey said, it’s “certainly

possible” the students would see decreased playing time because playing time is subject to athletic ability, and there are only so many positions on a team. Seventh- and eighth-grade teams are considered “developmental teams,” Namey said. “But by the same token, playing on a junior high team instead of a seventh- or eighth-grade team would not necessarily be detrimental,” he said, noting that the school district didn’t have seventh- or eighth-grade teams when he graduated from Meyers. He said savings would be realized in decreased coach salaries and busing costs if the budget in its current form is adopted. “It’s critical for everyone to understand that these are cuts (amounting to about $200,000) are proposed and things we are trying to do to prepare for when we do get a final budget from Harrisburg and our school district. …

No one will truly know until the budget is finalized,” Namey said. At Hazleton Area, the largest district in Luzerne County with 10,000 students and 74 sports teams, Athletic Director Fred Barletta submitted program cuts totaling $130,000. That represents 11 percent of Hazleton Area’s $1.2 million athletic budget and is in addition to a 6-percent decrease from the 2010-11 school year. Barletta said he spent 29 years as a teacher and has come to appreciate the positive effects athletics have on academics. “Our student athletes have higher GPAs than the average, higher SAT results than the average in the school and a lower incidence of discipline than the average in our school. Is there a correlation or just a coincidence? I believe it’s a correlation,” he said. One area of savings comes from eliminating at least five as-

sistant coach positions. In an effort to be fair to student athletes, Barletta drew up a ratio of coaches to students for each team. He cut one assistant coach from softball because there were 6.3 players for each coach. He made no cuts to the boys’ track and field team because there

Professor weighs in That risk is something Joe Rogan, a professor of teacher education at Misericordia University, says is real and is backed up by research. “There’s a ton of long-term research on early childhood education. … We’ve seen students doing better on state tests,” Rogan said of students who attended full-day kindergarten. Pre-school students also fare better in later school years. “It stays with them their entire lives. They’re much more likely to graduate from high school. And be successful later in life,” Rogan said. “It’s largely a result of getting kids started earlier. … It’s not a luxury, it’s a necessity. Those kids that come to school behind will stay behind. They’re just not going to catch up.” As far as a reduction in teachers, Rogan said the result is larger class sizes. “Class size alone doesn’t seem to be predictive of much of anything. If I lecture to 12 students, they learn as much as

girls’ basketball teams. The district will not re-establish seventhand eighth-grade football, and the cheerleading booster club will now pay for transportation to cheerleading competitions. Halting free shirts for coaches, at the suggestion of the school board, will save another $2,500.

Districts flunking governor’s budget

SCHOOL Public speaking classes: cut. After-school tutoring: gone. Some sports programs have been downsized as well. Strecker fears “first and foremost that my child might not get the best educational experience in public school. … If my child is behind in something, will it be caught? What if something doesn’t get picked up in first grade and they get too far behind?” said Strecker, 38, of Rice Township. Strecker was one of several Crestwood parents who refused to wait and see what happens. They did their homework on the educational and developmental effects of half-day versus full-day kindergarten and carefully examined whether the school district would realize a significant savings from switching and had an informational rally to present what they found. A similar scene played out Thursday night at a Hanover Area School Board meeting. Officials there have proposed cutting staff by 18 percent, consolidating schools, eliminating programs and raising taxes 0.9 mills. For more than an hour, the board heard from angry taxpayers and Leann Simasek, a teacher who brought some of her students to speak out against the board’s proposal to cut the visual arts program and eliminate her position. “You’re telling the kids they’re worthless,” Simasek had said. The Crestwood parents plan to present their findings on kindergarten cuts to the school board and administration and hope to convince the people in charge that their children will be put at risk while the district will not realize savings.

if I lecture to 30 students. But if a class size is manageable, teachers can be more creative. … If not, they get stuck in traditional teaching formats. They have no choice but to be less creative, do less projects, move around the room less,” Rogan said. “Once you get up in the 30s, you can’t deal with kids anymore, you’re dealing with a group. Instead of adjusting to kids’ needs, they expect the kids to adjust to the system and kids can’t always adjust. With smaller classes, you get to know the students better, you get to know their needs better and you can adjust,” Rogan said. Some students who struggle with the basics such as reading, writing and math often come to school looking forward to participating in art or music or sports, Rogan said, addressing cuts to those areas. “Without those, school becomes a drudgery for them,” he said. Value of pre-school Pre-school programs also prevent learning problems, Rogan said. Those students who do have developmental problems

can be helped when a classroom teacher notices signs early and collaborates with a special education teacher, Rogan said. “If a teacher has a large class, you get lost. It’s going to have a tremendously bad effect on kids with developmental disabilities,” Rogan said of cuts to early education programs and larger class sizes in primary grades. Strecker, a medical supplies salesman, said he is thankful he can afford to send his son to a full-day kindergarten at a private school. But he worries about the children of parents in the district who can’t afford it, such as a large portion of those living in White Haven. The median household income in White Haven is about $43,000, compared to the median household income for Rice Township, which is about $73,000. About 30 percent of White Haven households bring in less than $25,000 in income versus 15 percent of Rice Township households, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. State Rep. Tarah Toohil, RButler Township, had sent a representative to the Crestwood rally. As a proponent of full-day kindergarten, she said she

hopes school board members will “reassess their priorities” because the reduction would have “a negative impact on working families who will have to either pay for full-day kindergarten or pay for childcare services.” White Haven is part of Toohil’s district. Rogan and Helen Davis, who teaches English at Wilkes University, said the educational cuts are hardest on the least wealthy families. “It’s creating a class-based system that’s unfair. Parents who can afford to send their children to private school will get them the best education. Children in public schools will not get the same kind of education,” Davis said. “The kids who need education the most are the ones who are hurt the most,” Rogan said. Rogan said it’s the state’s responsibility to find funding for education, and he suspects that cuts are part of an effort to privatize schools. “I think there are politicians backing away from educating the entire society in favor of educating only some,” Rogan said.

WORKING FOR THE

UNINSURED 3rd annual VIM gala to raise funds to support free health care for those in need By HOLLY VAN LEUVEN For The Times Leader

Walking into Volunteers in Medicine on North Pennsylvania Avenue in Wilkes-Barre is a lot like visiting any doctor’s office — but there are some noticeable differences: in addition to comfortable vinyl chairs and smiling receptionists, there is the assurance of completely free medical care that welcomes working families without access to insurance. And, while the organization prepares for its largest annual fundraiser, patients are being greeted by a wall of 120 boxed disco balls. Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) is a nonprofit organization that helps meet the primary health care needs of the working uninsured and underinsured populations in Luzerne County. On June 17, VIM will hold its 3rd Annual Music, Memories & Medicine Gala at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs to raise much-needed funds. There are 85 VIM locations throughout the United States, which vary in size and scope from community to community. The Wilkes-Barre branch was first envisioned by Dr. Susan Sordoni. The clinic opened in the summer of 2008 after Sordoni conducted a feasibility study. It revealed 35,000 working Luzerne County residents had no access to health insurance. A few grants received from private foundations helped make Sordoni’s vision tangible: the building adjacent to the former Buzzy’s Bazaar was purchased and renovated into a stateof-the-art health care center. Sordoni then sent letters to her colleagues, soliciting their talents and services to aid Luzerne County’s disenfranchised working class. Dr. Michele Kowalski-McGraw, of the Health and Wellness Center, Hazleton, and Dr. Lynne Coslett-Charlton, of OBGYN Associates, WilkesBarre, were among the first to respond. “Then we dragged our husbands in,” Coslett jokes. Dr. Patrick McGraw, of Eye Care Specialists, Kingston, and Dr. William Charlton, of Orthopedic Consultants, Kingston, also volunteer for VIM. “I met my husband over a cadaver at medical school,” Coslett says. “We both have a good understanding of what our careers mean to us. We are busy parents of four children, so connecting through VIM is nice. But we also have similar values, and we feel this is important: that hardworking people receive the care they need.” To be eligible to receive care at VIM, patients must be employed with a household income at or below 200 percent of the annually published Federal Poverty Guidelines. They

Dr. Lynne Coslett-Charlton talks with a patient at the Volunteers in Medicine clinic in Wilkes-Barre.

“Even those patients apprehensive about a doctor’s visit just need to come. So many times health problems can be fixed if they are caught quickly enough. We are here to offer free, quality, and compassionate care. In a country like ours, with the testing capability we have, there is no reason why serious problems should go undiagnosed. We are really here for those who slip through the cracks.” Dr. Lynne Coslett-Charlton OBGYN Associates, Wilkes-Barre

journalism. He and has wife, Mary, have a daughter, Jacqueline, 21, a senior at Penn State University. They live in Sugarloaf. You majored in political science and initially had an interest in becoming a lawyer. What led you to a career in television journalism? “Even though I had a great interest and a love of the law and the legal system, I was always a student of the news. I’d be the guy watching Walter Cronkite, Huntley-Brinkley and John Chancellor. I was probably the only kid watching the nightly news when I was 9, 10 or 11 years old. When I went to Wilkes, I got involved with the college radio station, and one thing led to another. I started covering council, commissioner meetings and the Luzerne County Courthouse — not because it was my major, but because I liked being involved and being a part of what was happening.” You’ve said that in many ways as a reporter, you’ve always considered yourself a public servant. You’ve now been doing it for more than half of your life. What has sustained you? “I know this sounds corny, but helping people by getting to the truth. And again, I know

maybe I’m an old cornball, but the truth will set you free. Getting to the truth is a challenge in many ways, as we’ve seen in Luzerne County recently. It’s human nature to have little secrets, and that’s fine if it’s a personal or family thing, but when you’re a public official and it’s a secret that can affect others, people should know about that. I like getting to the truth.” When asked to name the most memorable story he ever covered, Mehalshick names a homicide, 20 years ago, of a 2-year old girl from South Wilkes-Barre. The child was killed by a member of her own family and her body was dumped into Solomon Creek. The family member later assisted in the search party. “When you went to the creek as the body was being brought out, you could hear a pin drop. That, by far, was the toughest live shot I’ve ever done. My daughter, at the time, was the same age. And to see this innocent little girl ... it angered me, and it also made me more pro-active when it came to crime reporting.” What do you do to relax? “I love boating.

I water ski and snow ski. And I spent a lot of time, when I can, with my daughter. She’s not a little girl anymore, but when she’s home, we play a lot of tennis. People think because you work in the media that you’re out there ‘in the mix’ and there’s a lot of country club visits and that kind of thing. That’s not me. I’m a working-class guy. I spend a lot of time with my family, and when my daughter is away, my wife and I have a lot of quality time. Walks, hikes — but my main hobby is boating.” Music? “Traditional rock: Aerosmith, KISS, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Boston.” Sports? “I’m a big Dallas Cowboys fan from way back. I started following them with Super Bowl V, when they lost to the Baltimore Colts on a field goal. And then they beat Miami the next year. I’m also a big Pittsburgh Pirates fan. I saw Roberto Clemente play in Pittsburgh back in the late ’60s and early ’70s. And I’m a big Boston Celtics fan.” See MEET, Page 9B

f you’re a genealogist, it never hurts to let the world know what you’re searching for, however obscure you think it might be. Publicizing your quest easily can pay big dividends. Several weeks ago Elsa Garey Roden of New York wrote to inquire about a popular book on Hadsell genealogy. She wasn’t even sure of the title. With an online search I was able to supply the name and author, but I was sad to report that the book is out of print. Then after I mentioned her search here, two readers wrote in to offer help — big-time help. DAR regent Kathleen Smith said that the DAR Library in Washington, D.C., has a copy. “One of my chapter members is going down there at the end of the month and if I knew what Elsa is looking for, we could try to copy it for her,” she said.” Simultaneously, Gina Evans of the Wyoming County Historical Society in Tunkhannock wrote to say that her group has the book as well and that Ms. Roden may visit and copy as much of it as she needs for just the cost of the copying. Of course I forwarded both emails to Elsa Garey Roden, and now she has a good shot at finding her vital information. Let’s give a couple of loud operaticstyle “bravas” to Kathleen and Gina. This is the way genealogists help one another, and it all starts with letting the public know what you’re looking for. Genealogy Records Update: Records from three Kingston Catholic churches and one funeral home will soon be available to the public, thanks to the ongoing microfilm project of the Northeast Pennsylvania Genealogical Society. The society has filmed records of St. Ignatius and two now-closed churches that have merged with St. Ignatius — St. Hedwig’s and St. Mary’s Annunciation. Also filmed are the records of the Maher Funeral Home. Included among the church records are anniversary programs, church closing programs, newspaper articles and other items. “These records will now be burned to DVDs and will be available for research at our library within the next month,” the society announced recently. The funeral home records will also be available soon. The society is also busy microfilming local high school yearbooks. To inquire about membership in the society, send an email to nepgsmail@gmail.com. The phone number is (570) 829-1765. The society’s library is at 639 Main Road, Hanover Township. It is open Thursdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and every second Saturday noon to 4 p.m. The group’s schedule of meetings for the season has ended and will resume in the fall. Vacation: As usual when summer nears I suggest that genealogists use some of their vacation time to visit sites associated with their ancestors. Let’s look at a few in the New York City area. The Lower East Side Tenement Museum, at Broome and Orchard streets, offers tours of authentic 19thcentury and early-20th-century tenement apartments, where many of our ancestors got their start. Ellis Island and Castle Garden, both at Battery Park, are the sites where from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s immigrants from Europe disembarked. As our family patriots from World War II, Korea and the Cold War eras slip away from us, take some time to visit the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum on Pier 86, featuring the aircraft carrier Intrepid and submarine Growler, for the sights and feel of military life of a bygone era.

Articles must be limited to 220 words, and we reserve the right to edit announcements that exceed that word count. Announcements

must be typed or submitted via www.timesleader.com. (Click on the "people" tab, then “weddings” and follow the instructions from there.) Submissions must include a daytime contact phone number and must be received within 10 months of the wedding date.

must not have private or federally funded health insurance, such as medical assistance. Services are available only to Luzerne County residents. To determine eligibility, prospective patients may schedule a screening appointment with VIM volunteers to review necessary documentation, such as recent pay stubs and W-2s. Free services available to approved patients include primary medical care, laboratory services, diagnostic testing, women’s health care, drug-dispensing services, mental health assessment, and counseling services. A team of more than 20 of the area’s highest caliber doctors in various fields treat patients by appointment at the clinic or at their offices when more specialized attention is needed. Dr. Kimberly Ference has helped secure more than $250,000-worth of medication to patients. Christine Gaughan, director of nursing, helps maintain the VIM schedule and arranges free treatment for patients outside of the Wilkes-Barre office. Lay volunteers also provide much of the manpower behind the organization. The staff includes students from Fortis, King’s College, and Wilkes University, and the help of enthusiastic community members is always appreciated. The clinic serves 4,500 registered patients between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and offers extended hours on Thursday until 8 p.m. Since VIM opened three years ago, it has seen more than 8,300 unique visits. The office, with 10 fully equipped exam rooms, sometimes schedules more than 25 appointments per day. “Our average demographic is adults between 25 and 55, and demand is steady,” Kelly Ranieli, the VIM’s executive director, explains. She cites the recent cancellation of state-subsidized Adult Basic insurance program and the uncertain economy for a recent influx of patients. While amendments to federal insurance laws that now allow children to stay on their parents’ health care plans have seen the number of tween-to-twenties visitors drop, Ranieli says, overall, the number of uninsured residents is not decreasing. While the quality of the facility and the dedication of the volunteers provide the VIM team with a strong sense of pride and accomplishment, Dr. Coslett and Ranieli agree that the real dream is the day the clinic does not have to exist, when everyone has access to quality, affordable health insurance. That certainly does not mean VIM is cutting corners while working toward Dr. Sordoni’s vision. In January 2011, a free den-

tal clinic with 5 treatment rooms and an X-ray machine was opened on site. It quickly accrued 450 patients and an additional 400 cram the waiting list. “The difficulty with time and space in the dental clinic,” Ranieli explains, “is that patients often come in excruciating pain, which is generally the result of a problem that needs four or five visits to resolve before the patient can reduce visits to every six months.” While even the medical center, which is booking three weeks in advance, may seem jam-packed, Coslett compares the wait to a typical office’s schedule. She says, “Even those patients apprehensive about a doctor’s visit just need to come. So many times health problems can be fixed if they are caught quickly enough. We are here to offer free, quality, and compassionate care. In a country like ours, with the testing capability we have, there is no reason why serious problems should go undiagnosed. We are really here for those who slip through the cracks.” VIM’s ongoing challenge, however, is to meet patient demand with limited funds. VIM receives no state or federal aid; it relies entirely on the support of individuals, businesses, and foundations. VIM’s biggest fundraiser is its annual Music, Memories & Medicine Gala. Chaired by Debbie and Alan Hollander with the assistance of Drs. Coslett and KowalskiMcGraw and their husbands, the event will be held this year at the Ball Room of Mohegan Sun, which is being transformed for the evening into a disco hall. Entertainment will be provided by The 70s Band, New York’s No. 1 disco band, and guests are encouraged to dig their go-go boots and leisure suits out of the closet for a night of dining and dancing. Tickets are available through the VIM office for $135 per person. The staff hopes that by curing their Saturday Night Fever, guests can help assuage the daunting lack of medical care available to their hardworking neighbors.

Kurt Busch earns pole in backup By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

LONG POND – Kurt Busch had about a two-minute window Saturday to amend a gaffe made while preparing for the 5-Hour Energy 500. The result even surprised him. Busch turned what could have been a dire situation into the pole position, using a backup car to earn the best starting spot for today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway. The two-time Pocono winner will start on the pole for the first time in his 21 races at the 2.5-mile trioval. He piloted his No. 22 Dodge owned by Roger Penske around the track at 171.579 mph, well off the track record of 172.533 set by KaSee POCONO, Page 12C

When talk of environmentally friendly activities comes up, NASCAR is probably not the first sport that comes to mind. After all, 43 cars barreling around a track for three or four hours isn’t the type of thing to make environmentalists feel all warm and fuzzy inside. But if Mike Lynch has anything to do with it, that is a perception that will soon be changing. “We started out to develop and implement a green strategy across the sport,” said Lynch, NASCAR’s managing director of green innovation. “It’s about conservation, job creation and strengthening American energy independence.” To that end, NASCAR began using Sunoco Green E15, a 15 percent enthanol blend fuel made with corn grown by American farmers, in its top three series. “If we can show how well it See GREEN , Page 12C

YANKEES

By LINDSAY KRAMER For The Times Leader

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman’s stay with the Syracuse Chiefs is expected to be very temporary. It’s already lasted too long for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Zimmerman, who joined the Chiefs on Saturday for a rehab assignment, showed heads-up glove work, drove in the goahead run and then scored the winning run as the host Chiefs edged the Yankees 3-2 in the first of a four-game set at Alliance Bank Stadium. See YANKEES , Page 5C

By RICHARD ROSENBLATT AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom nearly fell at the start. Preakness winner Shackleford faded in the stretch. The Belmont Stakes was up for grabs. And it was 24-1 long shot Ruler on Ice who delivered a huge upset Saturday in the final leg of the Triple Crown, splashing his way to a threequarter length victory over Stay Thirsty. As expected, Shackleford led from the start but when the field of 12 turned for home in the 11⁄2-mile Belmont, he tired in the muck as long shots Ruler On Ice and Stay Thirsty passed him by. “Ruler wasn’t slowing down,” winning jockey AP PHOTO Jose Valdivia Jr. said. “It was a great feeling the Jockey Jose Valdivia Jr. celebrates after Ruler last sixteenth of a mile.” On Ice won the Belmont Stakes. The 24-1 long shot paid $51.50, $26 and $13.60.

See BELMONT , Page 5C

t’s clear Jeff Gordon is shifting back into gear. Now that NASCAR’s transmission gear ratios for Pocono Raceway have changed, so has Gordon’s luck. He finished third in Saturday’s qualifying run for today’s 5-Hour Energy 500 at Pocono, marking his best starting position at the tricky track since qualifying second for the June 2009 race. “I just pushed the car as hard as I could,” Gordon said after roaring to a lap time of 171.350 mph in his qualifier. “I didn’t think I had the best lap, to be honest with you.” It could have been much worse for Gordon. It could have been last year. That’s when a luckless losing streak sent him to a winless season for the second time in three years, trying the patience of even the normally affable Gordon. A bad decision on tires cost him certain victory at Las Vegas. He got caught in a bad pileup on the track at Texas and didn’t get a win in a race he led most of the way. A bad tire got him in Michigan and a bad battery cost him a shot at winning in Charlotte. After eight near-misses at victory lane, his bad temper boiled over when NASCAR came back to Texas. After he was wrecked under caution by Jeff Burton, Gordon sauntered straight up the track and shoved Burton into a barrier. By the end of the season, there was no holding back his frustration. A guy still to look out for Partly because of it, his Hendrick Motorsports team shuffled crew chiefs – putting Gordon in the hands of Alan Gustafson and sending Gordon’s sixyear chief Steve Letarte over to work with Dale Earnhardt Jr. New faces, new season, new results. During the second NASCAR race of this season, Gordon snapped his winless skein by capturing Phoenix. That started a string of four top-five finishes in 12 races for Gordon, which boosted him into 13th place in the current points standings. That’s not enough to make him an automatic qualifier for the Chase for the Cup just yet, but there’s a lot of racing season remaining. And a lot of hope where Gordon is concerned. “I’m so proud of the work that’s been done with this team to make some gains,” Gordon said. “I think the performance has picked up in a big way.” It seems as if his bad luck of last season is out of the way. Even as he’s about to turn 40 in August, Gordon is still a guy to look out for. He is tied with Cale Yarborough with 83 wins, the fifth-most victories in NASCAR history, and is one away from joining Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip in third place. Gordon’s place in NASCAR’s lore is already set, as he’s one of just four drivers with four Cup titles. Four of Gordon’s race victories have come at Pocono Raceway, where a win today would match Bill Elliott’s track record of five wins. Gordon is already at the top of the track’s record book with 918 laps led. And now that NASCAR’s gear ratios have changed to make shifting more conducive at tracks such as Pocono – where stricter ratios over the past three years made shifting nearly impossible – Gordon could push into overdrive. “I wasn’t a fan of when they took it away,” said Gordon, who suggested the change will give drivers “more opportunity to pass. “I’m glad it’s back.” So is Gordon. All it took was a shifting of crew chiefs and a boost to his hopes to make him a threat again.

L-L clinic under way

The second annual Summer Wrestling Clinic is under way but is offering last-chance registrations for wrestlers wishing to seek coaching and instruction from nearly a dozen NCAA and PIAA wrestling coaches. The eight-week clinic, which started June 6, is held from 5:30-7:30 every Monday and Wednesday until July 27 at Lake-Lehman High School. The registration cost is $180 per wrestler for the remainder of the seven weeks. This summer’s program is highlighted by former American Univeristy head coach Mark Cody, the 2011 NCAA Division I National Coach of the Year, who will be at the clinic on June 15. The Eagles finished in fifth place at the NCAA championships this spring and produced three All-Americans. Cody was named head coach at Oklahoma University in April. Registered participants will have 32 total hours of on-themat wrestling with other notable instructors including: Rob Koll (Cornell – No. 1 ranking this past season, nine All-Americans in last four years), Kerry McCoy (Maryland - two-time Olympian, 2009 ACC Coach of the Year), Dave Crowell (Nazareth H.S. - five-time PIAA Coach of the Year) and 2007 PIAA Class 2A champion Scott Davis. Questions about registration can be obtained by contacting Jack Davis at (814) 538-9034 or Tom Williams at (570) 2552903.

Lee (6-5) passed teammate Roy Halladay for the league lead in strikeouts, recording seven to up his season total to 107. He allowed four hits and one run while walking two.

Darwin Barney had two hits for the Cubs, who have dropped 10 of 12. Lee improved to 4-0 in five career starts against the Cubs.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

A-Rod plunked after HR in Yankees win The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez was hit by a pitch after he homered, Bartolo Colon pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning before he hurt himself, and the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 4-0 on a misty, windy Saturday afternoon. Curtis Granderson hit his 20th homer of the season and Rodriguez got plunked by Indians starter Mitch Talbot a day after the teams’ benches cleared, adding another chapter to what has been a testy homestand for the Yankees. Talbot was ejected after hitting A-Rod, and the Yankees didn’t respond in kind. Instead, they sent Cleveland to its 13th loss in 17 games and left the Indians barely clinging to first place in the AL Central for one more day. Red Sox 16 Blue Jays 4

TORONTO — John Lackey made up for a terrible first start in Toronto this season, No. 9 hitter Jason Varitek homered and drove in four runs and the Boston Red Sox routed the Toronto Blue Jays 16-4 on Saturday. Lackey (4-5) delivered six strong innings in his second start since going on the disabled list after giving up nine runs in 6 2-3 innings against the Blue Jays on May 11. The right-hander was charged with four runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out a season-high eight. David Oritz hit a three-run homer and Dustin Pedroia drove in three runs as Boston amassed 18 hits. The Red Sox

batted around twice and every starter drove in at least one run in piling up the most runs allowed by the Blue Jays this season. Things got so bad for Toronto, utility man Mike McCoy pitched the ninth inning. Twins 8, Rangers 1

MINNEAPOLIS — Scott Baker pitched a five-hitter for his fourth complete game and Alexi Casilla had three hits and scored two runs, leading the Minnesota Twins to an 8-1 win over Texas Rangers on Saturday. Delmon Young had three hits and two RBIs for Minnesota, which has won eight of 11. Baker (4-4) struck out seven in his first complete game since Aug. 14, 2009. Tigers 8, Mariners 1

DETROIT — Max Scherzer found his form after three rocky starts, Austin Jackson tripled twice and the Detroit Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners 8-1 on Saturday night. Victor Martinez had three hits and two RBIs and Jhonny Peralta homered for the Tigers, who moved within one percentage point of first-place Cleveland in the AL Central after being as many as eight games behind in early May. White Sox 3, Athletics 2

CHICAGO — Brent Lillibridge helped make John Danks a winner with a homersaving catch in the eighth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 3-2 on Saturday night.

PHILLIES PROSPECTS

Single-A infielder swings hot bat

YA N K E E S I N M I N O R S

Highly regarded hurlers help Trenton Editor’s Note: The Scranton/

Editor’s Note: The Philadelphia Phillies minor league system has lost some highly regarded prospects during the last few years with many trades being made to help the parent club. But that doesn’t mean the cupboard is bare. The Phillies have produced more young talent and might have more pieces to deal if they need to make a midseason trade this season. Here are how some of the top prospects in the Philadelphia organization are faring this season:

Wilkes-Barre Yankees have taken a page from their parent club by winning championships. SWB has racked up four consecutive International League North Division titles and more could be on the way because the minor league system is stacked with top prospects that are close to contributing at the Triple-A or Major League level, according to Baseball America.

Joe Savery: A first baseman, who is a former pitcher in the organization, continues to swing a hot bat for Class-A Clearwater. He’s hitting .314 with 12 extrabase hits and 21 RBI in 188 at-bats for the Threshers. He’s also posted a .370 on base percentage. Double-A Reading’s Matt Rizzotti had an offweek and was Savery passed by Savery for the organizational lead in batting average. Rizzotti, a designated hitter for the R-Phils, is Rizzotti hitting .307. Brody Colvin: The team’s top pitching prospect, according to Baseball America, was hamColvin pered with an injury earlier this season and is starting to get stretched out. He has pitched well enough to Biddle win in his last four starts, but has no wins to show for it. In 33 1⁄3 innings this Aumont season he’s 0-2 with a 4.05 ERA with 26 strikeouts and just 13 walks. In his last start, he allowed just one run over five innings against the Tampa Yankees. Jesse Biddle: The Phillies’ No. 1 pick from 2010, pitched on Friday and was hit with a loss for Low-A Lakewood allowing four runs in 4 2⁄3 innings. The 19-year-old is 3-6 with a 4.13 ERA for the BlueClaws with 51 strikeouts in 61 innings. Phillippe Aumont: One of the three players acquired by the Phillies in the Cliff Lee deal in December 2009, he got off to a rocky start in the organization last year when the Phillies tried to make him a full-time starter. The plan backfired as the 6-foot-7, 255-pound righty finished 3-11 with a 5.68 ERA in the minors. This year, as a reliever, he’s posted a 2.43 ERA in 24 appearances for Double-A Reading, with a 1-5 mark and four saves.

KEVIN MINGORA/THE MORNING CALL

Durham’s Russ Canzler rounds third base after hitting a grand slam against Lehigh Valley at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown Tuesday. For the Hazleton native, it was the first home run he hit in Pennsylvania during his eight-year minor league career.

Canzler a hit in Triple-A ALLENTOWN – The shot soared off the big slugger’s bat, heading high over the leftfield wall at Coca-Cola Park and on its way to yet another surprise in a season Russ Canzler has filled with them. It was more than just the first grand slam of his Triple-A career. The fact it came on the first pitch he saw and the first swing he took in Pennsylvania since playing high school ball less than an hour up the road at Hazleton Area High School made the moment even more meaningful to Canzler. “That was great man,” Canzler said Tuesday, after his first-inning slam began a

at the top of my game.” As a fielder, he’s learning a new game. Mainly a first baseman and outfielder through his pro career, Canzler is regularly playing third base for the Bulls. His inexperience at the position proved costly – when Canzler’s throwing error gave the IronPigs their only run Tuesday. “He’s never really played third base that much,” Montoyo defended. “Last year he played outfield and first base. So far, he’s been outstanding. If he hits like he’s been hitting, I’ve got to play him everywhere.” That could lead to the call-up Canzler’s spent his whole life looking for. He believes his hot start to his initial Triple-A season has him major league ready, and with parent Tampa Bay’s continuing struggles at first base, there have been a few cries from big league fans in Florida to call up Canzler. “It’s going good,” Canzler said. So well, in fact, Canzler might not be in the minor leagues anymore when Durham visits the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees – who play just up the road from Hazleton – from Aug. 16 through 19. And his parents might be moved into a new home in Clayton, N.C., by then. But that won’t keep Canzler from hearing the hoots and hollers coming from Hazleton. “I go up there every offseason for a little while,” Canzler said. “That’ll always be my home and hold a special place in my heart.” Because to him, a trip back near Hazleton is always like hitting a grand slam.

Dellin Betances: The No. 3 overall prospect for the Yankees and the top pitching prospect, Betances continues to be productive at Double-A Trenton. His ERA has steadily risen in the last three weeks, but it would be difficult for the mark to get much lower than it was then. His ERA still remains at Betances a stellar 1.75. He’s posted a 3-1 record with 58 strikeouts and only 34 hits allowed in 51 1⁄3 innings for the Thunder. Banuelos On Thursday, he threw six shutout innings against Reading in a no-decision. Manny Banuelos: The No. 2 pitching prospect in the organization and the No. 4 overall prospect for the Yankees, Banuelos had his worst outing of the year for Trenton last week when he allowed nine hits and five runs in four innings against Reading. The 20-year-old right-hander did not pick up the loss in the game and his record is still 2-0. His ERA is still a very respectable at 2.84, with 45 strikeouts in 50 2⁄3 innings. Gary Sanchez: The catcher, who is rated the No. 2 overall prospect in the organization, was playing for Single-A Charleston before being sent back to spring training last week for what several media outlets have reported as attitude problems. Sanchez, who has been touted by many as the organization’s best hitting prospect, reportedly declined to enter a recent game as a replacement and didn’t want to catch in the bullpen either. He returned to the RiverDogs last week and has gone 3-for-14 since returning. His season stats after Friday are a .235 average, with four home runs and 21 RBI in 36 games. Notable: Tampa third baseman Robert Lyerly leads all Yankee minor leaguers in batting average, hitting .322 in 239 at-bats before Saturday’s game.

Today in SWB History The 2004 season didn’t conclude with the Red Barons finishing with a winning record. The team posted a 69-73 mark that year, but it did have a memorable streak. From May 26 to June 13, the Barons won a franchise-record 10 consecutive road games. On June 12, 2004, SWB defeated Louisville, 10-6, in 10 innings after rallying back from deficits in the sixth and eighth. Mark Budzinski was 4-for-5 for the Red Barons in the game. The longest road win streak was later tied by the Yankees from April 8-25 in 2009.

AMERICAN LEGION ROUNDUP

Greater Pittston edges Hazleton The Times Leader staff

HAZLETON – Chris Murphy tossed a one-hit complete game to earn a 3-1 Wyoming Valley American Legion victory for Greater Pittston over Hazleton on Saturday. Murphy helped his cause at the plate with three hits and one run. PJ Bone contributed two hits and an RBI for Greater Pittston. Robert Seigendall doubled for Hazleton’s lone hit. Matt Benyo produced an RBI.

BELMONT Continued from Page 1C

The much-hyped rubber match between Shackleford and Animal Kingdom never developed on a rainy day at Belmont Park. Shackleford finished fifth, while Animal Kingdom had a frightful start, never moved into contention and finished sixth. Jockey John Velazquez nearly fell off when Animal Kingdom collided with Monzon just after the start. He somehow managed to get his left foot back into the stirrup, but by then it was too late. Animal Kingdom had dropped more than 13 lengths off the lead, and did well to finish in the middle of the pack. “The horse almost fell down,” said Graham Motion, Animal Kingdom’s trainer. “Johnny couldn’t believe the horse stayed up. He lost his iron. It took him until halfway around the turn to get his foot back in the iron. It’s disappointing not to give the horse a chance to run his race.” An elated Valdivia, riding in his first Belmont, described the final seconds of the race while on

the gallop back to the winner’s circle. “I’m a couple of yards from the wire and I’m thinking, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, I’m going to win the Belmont,”’ he said. A crowd of 55,779 turned out hoping to see a stretch showdown between Animal Kingdom and Shackleford — the first Derby vs. Preakness winners in the Belmont in six years. But that vanished once the Derby winner was knocked around in a bad bit of racing luck. “It was unbelievable,” Velazquez said. “They came over on me and clipped heels and I almost came off. I had a horrible trip. No way was he going to make up that much ground. He’s still a great horse.” The Belmont has a history of surprise finishes, from spoiled Triple Crown attempts to stunning shockers. Only two favorites have won since Thunder Gulch in 1995, and long shots have been the norm. Last year, it was 13-1 Drosselmeyer, two years ago Summer Bird at 11-1, and three years ago Da’ Tara at 38-1. Birdstone spoiled Smarty Jones’ bid for a Triple Crown in 2004 at odds of 36-1 and Sarava

ended War Emblem’s Triple try in 2002 at 70-1 odds. The win left Lori Hall, who owns Ruler On Ice with her husband George, shaking. “It was amazing, because we really were the underdog,” she said. Ruler On Ice’s victory makes it three years in a row a different horse has won each of the Triple Crown races, and next year it will be a 33-year gap since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 1978. Ruler On Ice, trained by New Jersey-based Kelly Breen, did not run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown. The 3-year-old gelding didn’t have enough graded stakes earnings to qualify for the Derby, but vindicated his trainer’s faith by defeating a field that included the first seven finishers in the Run for the Roses. The winning time for the oldest and longest race in the Triple Crown was a slow 2:30.88. While Shackleford and jockey Jesus Castenon shot to the lead from the outside No. 12 post, Ruler On Ice stalked him all the way around the track. Stay Thirsty and Brilliant Speed were close behind but they weren’t going to catch Ruler On Ice once he

took over with about an eighthof-a-mile to go. Ruler On Ice, a temperamental sort fitted with blinkers for the first time to keep him focused, returned $51.50, $26 and $13.60. Stay Thirsty, owner Mike Repole’s second-best 3-year-old behind the sidelined Uncle Mo, paid $19.40 and $10.80. Brilliant Speed was third and returned $7.90 to show. The $2 win payoff is the eighth highest in Belmont history. Sarava’s $2 win payoff of $142.50 is the record. Nehro, second in his last three races, including the Derby, was fourth, followed by Shackleford, Animal Kingdom, Mucho Macho Man, Santiva, Monzon, Master of Hounds, Prime Cut and Isn’t He Perfect. Shackleford’s trainer Dale Romans said before the race he expected his colt to break first and then see how far he can go. It wasn’t far enough. “He had it his way,” Romans said. “We had it the way we wanted. He just didn’t hang on. We’re so proud of the way he performed. I was down, but I would never get too down running at this level of race.”

Trainer reflects on filly’s historic win in 2007 By ED MCNAMARA Newsday

Four years ago, Rags to Riches made history at Curlin’s expense. The Kentucky Oaks winner edged the Preakness hero by a head to become the first filly to win the Belmont Stakes in 102 years. Steve Asmussen saddled his second Belmont runner Saturday, when Nehro finished fourth, 71⁄2 lengths behind 24-1 winner Ruler On Ice. The twotime Eclipse Award winner still wonders how his first one didn’t win. “I’ve been thinking about Curlin a lot this week,” Asmussen said Friday. “I can’t believe it happened, but I watched it. It happened. She ran incredible. They came home in 48 going a mile and a half. Some things are just completely out of your hands.” The stretch duel between the filly and the huge chestnut colt

YANKEES Continued from Page 1C

Syracuse starter Tommy Milone (4-4) picked up the win by scattering eight hits and fanning eight in seven innings, giving up a run only on designated hitter Brandon Laird’s sixth-inning solo shot. Zimmerman, a National League all-star for Washington in 2009, is returning from surgery he had May 3 for a torn abdominal muscle that he suffered early this season. He singled in his first at-bat in the first but saved his damaging blow for the seventh. With the game knotted 1-1,

BELMONT

Curlin’s Belmont still bugs Asmussen, anyway. “The next day, the next week ... four years later, and I still can’t believe he got beat,” he said. “But he did.”

was among the most memorable in Belmont history. Tom Durkin captured the moment with his race call: “They’re going head to head. It’s going to be very close. It’s ... a filly in the Belmont!” There’s a racing saying that you get paid for what you do, but that you pay for it, too. It was a glorious day for Rags to Riches, but she would never have another. She became ill that summer, and she suffered a leg injury when second in her comeback race in September at Belmont. She never ran again, and trainer Todd Pletcher announced her retirement six months later. Curlin became Horse of the Year that season and in 2008.

No luck of the Irish T.J. Comerford has worked for his old friend Aidan O’Brien for 14 years. The assistant trainer deputized for the Irish genius in the Belmont, in which Master of Hounds ran a disappointing 10th of 12. Comerford flew in from Ireland on Tuesday with Master of Hounds and Viscount Nelson, who was eighth in the Grade I Woodford Reserve Manhattan. They were scheduled to return today to Shannon Airport in southwest Ireland. “I’ve been very busy with the two of them this week,” Comerford said Friday. He’ll be even busier starting

Tuesday, the first of Royal Ascot’s five days. He’ll be coming from O’Brien’s Ballydoyle base with runners for the world’s most prestigious meet. Comerford said he’ll make round-trip flights to England on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Pletcher will send out his first two Royal Ascot runners Tuesday (Bridgetown) and Friday (More Than Real, owned by celebrity chef Bobby Flay). In between, Pletcher plans to visit Ballydoyle, the world’s most famous stable. So he and Comerford might cross paths there Wednesday. The affable Irishman got in a friendly dig at Pletcher, America’s most successful trainer. “When I saw him the other day,” Comerford said, “I told him, ’Come over to see us and we’ll teach you how to train one.””

Yankees starter D.J. Mitchell (4-5) walked Corey Brown to lead off the inning and Matt Antonelli bunted him to second. One out later, Zimmerman singled to left to drive in Brown. Zimmerman took second on a wild pitch, and Chris Marrero drilled a single to center for the two-run cushion. The Yankees pulled within 3-2 courtesy of an RBI single from Laird in the eighth, but wasted their last chance by hitting into a game-ending double play with runners on first and second. After several innings of huffing and puffing with nothing to show for it, the Yankees finally took a chunk out of Milone in the sixth. With one out, Laird

pounded a Milone offering over the left-field wall to tie the game at 1-1. Mitchell came into the contest as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s road ace, with a 4-0 record and a 1.24 ERA in games away from home. But the Chiefs were rude to Mitchell from the start. They loaded the bases with two outs in the bottom of the first, but Mitchell wriggled out of that by getting Jesus Flores to fly out to deep center. The pitcher couldn’t keep it in the ballpark the next inning. Syracuse outfielder Jesus Valdez launched a solo shot to left to put the first run on the scoreboard. The Yankees were primed to answer in the top of the third,

when Luis Nunez led off with a double and took third on Gustavo Molina’s single. Greg Golson then chopped a grounder to Zimmerman at third, who smoothly fired a strike home to nab Nunez. Milone then fanned Ramiro Pena and induced Jordan Parraz to fly out. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre made more noise in the fourth, when Kevin Russo lashed a two-out single and took third on a hit by Dan Brewer. Brewer stole second, but both runners were stuck where they were when Milone struck out Nunez. RHP Andrew Brackman (2-5, 6.75) will take the mound for the Yankees in today’s 2 p.m. game vs. Chiefs RHP Erik Arnesen (0-2, 4.91)

Goaltender Thomas’ play going to waste vs. Canucks Bruins star has allowed 6 goals in 5 games during finals, but Boston trails in series, 3-2

By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Tim Thomas is giving a masterful performance in his net during the Stanley Cup finals. He’s also doing an excellent job masking the frustration that must be coursing through him. The Bruins’ star goalie has allowed just six goals by the Vancouver Canucks in five games, yet Boston is heading home facing elimination in Game 6 on Monday. Vancouver moved to the brink of its first NHL title with a 1-0 victory Friday — the Canucks’ second 1-0 home win in a series dominated by the home teams. Unless they hold off the Canucks at TD Garden, they won’t get one last chance to figure it out. “The plan was for us to score more than them, which I guess we have, but ...” Thomas said, his voice trailing off. Indeed, the Bruins have outscored Vancouver 14-6 in the series, but 12 of those goals were in two blowout wins in Boston. The West Coast hasn’t been nearly as kind to the Bruins in a series in a series that’s been colored by dangerous hits, diving and taunting — but dominated by stellar goaltending from Thomas and Rober-

to Luongo. “It’s very close,” Luongo said Saturday before boarding a plane to Boston. “It’s at our fingertips right now. The next two days are going to be very important to stay focused, and come Monday night, we have the game of our lives. We’re ready to do whatever it takes to win.” While Luongo has been alternately brilliant and hopeless, Thomas is Boston’s only constant in the series, scrambling around his crease in a textbook performance of a goaltending style that won’t be found in any instruction manual. The Bruins won two blowout games at home, but they haven’t caught a break in Vancouver. Thomas stopped 24 shots in Game 5, but he failed to get to Maxim Lapierre’s third-period winner, scored off a canny rebound of Kevin Bieksa’s shot behind his net. An estimated 100,000 fans in downtown Vancouver’s streets erupted in a sea of celebration when Lapierre scored.

Boston. In a tense Game 5, the Canucks acknowledged they had to resort to trickery and luck just to get one goal against Thomas, who might be the next on a small list of players to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP from the losing team. Thomas would prefer to win the big silver prize, and he remains confident the Bruins can do it. He hopes Boston can gather momentum back home, where the Bruins embarrassed the Canucks on energy drawn partially from Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome’s dangerous late hit in Game 3 on Boston forward Nathan Horton, who’s out for the series. “It seems like so far this series, the home crowds have helped the teams,” said Thomas, who has a jaw-dropping .971 save percentage in the finals, stopping 165 of Vancouver’s 171 shots. “It’s not always the case, but going home for Game 6, we hope it’s the case one more time.” The Canucks would love to

wrap up their franchise’s first title without going through the tension of a Game 7, although they emerged from Game 5 feeling more relief than elation. Vancouver had the NHL’s highest-scoring offense and best power play during the regular season, but the Canucks have been forced to play a different game just to survive in the finals. So far, they’re just getting away with their meager offensive output because Luongo has been sharp at the biggest moments. Luongo was pulled from Game 4 after giving up 12 goals in just over four periods, but the veteran Olympic gold medal-winner’s shutout in Game 5 proved he has a knack for big games, no matter what his critical fans in Vancouver might think.

NBA FINALS

Down 3-2, the Heat turning up on LeBron James MIAMI — The hammer Dirk Nowitzki is so close to escaping is pounding away harder than ever at LeBron James. The Dallas Mavericks are a victory from claiming the title that James came to Miami to win. It would forever alter Nowitzki’s reputation, which has already been elevated enormously during this series as he’s ignored injury and illness. And James is now the target of all the criticism Nowitzki long endured, the one shouldering most of the blame as things go wrong. “That’s just a part of the game if you’re the star or the face of the franchise,” Nowitzki said Saturday. “If you win, it’s great for you, and everybody looks at you. And if you lose, you’re going to get hammered. It’s just part of the business. I think we understand that, we’ve been around long enough. I got hammered the last 13 years, basically. So hopefully this year I can make the hammering go away for a year.” He has two shots at it. The Mavs can win their first title tonight, or Tuesday if the Heat force a seventh game. That would require a stronger effort from James, who this time a year ago was coming off his second straight MVP award and was three weeks from becoming among the most sought-after free agents in sports history. Now he’s the guy who can’t produce in the fourth quarters, with 11 total points in five games, the one with the big name but the puny stats who had to spend part of his off day answering all sorts of questions about what’s happened to him. • Are those 44 minutes per game you’re playing too much? “I wouldn’t say it’s too much. I

don’t think so,” James said. “I don’t feel like I’m hurting my team for the time I’m out there. I don’t feel like it’s too much.” • Is something wrong with your shot technique? “At this point, I don’t think technique has anything to do with it,” James said. “Shots go in, shots don’t go in. I don’t stop to think about my technique or anything like that.” • Are you simply feeling the pressure of the finals stage? “I think the game of basketball can be pressure,” James said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s the finals or the conference finals or first round. Playoff basketball is all about pressure, how you can handle it.” James did allow that perhaps he hasn’t been as aggressive in the fourth quarter because Dwyane Wade has been playing so well. Wade is averaging 28.4 points — 11 more than James, who also trails Chris Bosh. “He’s one of the best players in the world,” Wade said. “So we’re not necessarily concerned about him to that extent. I want him to play and feel confident.” James noted that he did have a triple-double last game, but even with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, he said, “I had a bad game in a lot of people’s eyes. I understand that.” Nowitzki knows the feeling. He has been the lone big star on a Dallas team that’s won 50 games for11 straight seasons, yet he’s known best for his failures: the collapse after a 2-0 lead over Miami in the 2006 finals, the first-round loss to

peared to be mocking his recent illness on a video that made the rounds Friday. Nowitzki called it “a little childish, a little ignorant,” but denied that it would give him any added motivation to claim the ring he’s been chasing for 13 years. “We’re one win away from my dream, what I’ve worked on for

half my life,” Nowitzki said. “This is really all I’m worried about, this is all I’m focusing on, and not really the off-the-court stuff that happened.” James and Wade downplayed

MIAMI — Heat guard Dwyane Wade says his bruised left hip will not be an issue for Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Wade went through some of Miami’s practice on Saturday, took part in the regular team shooting games afterward and pronounced himself fully fit for tonight’s win-or-else game against the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas leads the best-of-seven series 3-2. “He’ll be ready to go,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Wade was injured in the first quarter of Game 5, retreating to the locker room for treatment and staying in for a second round after halftime before returning to the floor. He finished Game 5 with a team-high 23 points. “This is just another day of getting treatment and getting rest,” Wade said Saturday. YOUNG FAN HONORED: At Game 6 of the NBA finals tonight, the Heat will honor the memory of Henry Buchanan, a 7-year-old from Hollywood, Fla., who died Wednesday. Health officials suspect meningitis as the cause, though tests are still pending. Friends of Henry’s family reached out to the team Saturday with e-mails about how the boy would often wear Heat jerseys and played basketball whenever he could. The team invited his family to Game 6 and planned to show his photo on the video screen before the game.

Heat public address announcer Michael Baiamonte also planned to reach out to the boy’s family, since Henry was a fan of his in-game calls.

BY THE NUMBERS: Scoring in the NBA will be down about 1 percent this season. In 1,312 games last year, NBA teams scored a combined 263,091 points. Through 1,310 games this season, they’re at 259,925 — which works out, on average, as two fewer points per game.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Robert Karlsson shot a 2-under 68 Saturday to remain atop the leaderboard through three rounds at the St. Jude Classic.

West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck, left, and head football coach Dana Holgorsen answer questions Friday.

The Associated Press

He was to be just offensive coordinator this season, but now will also be head coach. By JOHN RABY AP Sports Writer

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Last December, Oliver Luck brimmed with confidence that offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen, a night owl, and lameduck coach Bill Stewart, an early riser and family man, could work together in a unique arrangement for the 2011 season. Unhappy about the Mountaineers’ lack of production, West Virginia’s athletic director hired Holgorsen away from Oklahoma State, where his offense had put up ridiculous numbers. Holgorsen would run West Virginia’s offense while Stewart would coach the team one final season before slipping into an administrative job. Six months later, the arrangement had fallen apart, and now Holgorsen, two weeks shy of his 40th birthday, is a college head coach for the first time. “At the time, I thought it made a lot of sense,” Luck said Friday night. “I thought it was good management practice. With hindsight, folks could certainly disagree.” Stewart resigned Friday during a meeting with Luck, clearing the way for Holgorsen’s promotion and capping a tumultuous two weeks in which both Holgorsen and Stewart made headlines for the wrong reasons. An intoxicated Holgorsen was escorted out of a casino last month, although no charges were filed. More recently, a reporter said Stewart had approached him shortly after Hol-

gorsen’s hiring to “dig up” dirt on his eventual successor. During a news conference in Morgantown, both Holgorsen and Luck tried to sidestep questions about the issues that had gotten the university plenty of media attention. Luck said the recent developments had to be addressed. “I think it was a combination of things,” Luck said. “The program ... is more important than any individual, is more important than any coach, any player, and clearly, this was becoming a distraction for our football program. “It was the right thing to do.” Holgorsen will carry dual duties as offensive coordinator and head coach in the upcoming season and will hire an offensive coordinator down the road. “This is the chance of a lifetime. I understand that,” Holgorsen said. He said he had yet to talk to his players but said nothing has changed as far as focus goes. “Kids are resilient,” Holgorsen said. “Change is tough, but it’s least tough on kids. The one thing that will be preached every day is unity.” Growing up in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, Holgorsen recalled watching the teams of WVU Hall of Fame coach Don Nehlen, who led the Mountaineers to two undefeated regular seasons and retired after the 2000 season. “He set the standard for what it’s like here, both on and off the field,” Holgorsen said. “And I look forward to living up to those standards as well. ... I understand what the expectations are to wear the blue and gold, you know, and those expectations both on and off the field are something I look forward to living up to.”

Some communities, like Latrobe, where the Pittsburgh Steelers annually hold preseason practice, may lose the opportunity to host NFL training camps if the lockout drags on.

Camp sites sweating lockout Communities where training camps are held may miss out this year due to work stoppage. By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — Jake’s Stadium Pizza has been a fast-food fixture on the Minnesota State University campus for nearly four decades. This summer, they’re cooking that thin crust with crossed fingers in Mankato, Minn. The NFL lockout, now headed toward its fourth month, is threatening a revenue-driving, profile-raising event for this small, family-owned business: Vikings training camp. “We’re hoping they get it done, because it’s not just us. It’s the whole state that will suffer,” said Wally Boyer, the owner of the joint where players from Jim Marshall to John Randle have recuperated after many a draining workout. Fans, too, have long made that familiar walk down Stadium Road after watching practice to fill up and cool off. If the work stoppage lingers long enough to keep teams from holding traditional training camps, the hit would be felt far beyond Minnesota, and it wouldn’t just be about losing money. In upstate New York, the Jets have trained on the SUNY Cortland campus the last two years. “Just their presence alone has stimulated people. It’s just good

for the mental health of the community,” said Cortland State football coach Dan MacNeill. “For our people, it’s been fun. It has impacted the football program. We don’t have normal use of our facilities. But an NFL franchise, no matter where you go, there’s a heck of a following.” Seventeen of the 32 NFL teams last year held training camp at their year-round facilities, reflecting a trend toward cost-and-time efficiency in an era in which chemistry is built and conditioning established well before the two-a-day grind in August. But the other 15 teams still take their show on the road, many of them to slower-paced cities and small colleges where their presence is a big deal — and a big financial boon. Some people make a summer vacation out of watching their favorite team run drills and scrimmages. Day-trippers at least stop for a bite to eat on the way out of town. The Cardinals have held camp at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff since 1988, and the school’s Rural Policy Institute estimated it brought $7 million to the local economy last year, with an overall impact of $10 million. There were over 38,000 visitors, 81 percent of those from out of town, along with 122 jobs created by the camp. In southern Minnesota, a 90minute drive from the Twin Cities, Vikings training camp makes a $5 million impact on

Venus readies for Eastbourne tourney after injury layoff The Associated Press

EASTBOURNE, England — Fit again after the toughest injury layoff of her career, Venus Williams said Saturday that a sixth Wimbledon title is within her reach despite more than four months off the tour. Williams, 30, will play her first match since January at the Eastbourne International grass-court tournament next week after recovering from a hip injury.

She will be joined at the Wimbledon warmup by younger sister Serena, who hasn’t played in nearly a year since winning a fourth singles title at the All England Club. “In terms of winning these tournaments, that’s what we are here for,” Venus said. “We’re not here for results, so we are going to do our best to take home two titles on this road. “Whether it can happen ... remains to be seen. But that’s what we aim for every time we hit the

court.” Venus will play Andrea Petkovic of Germany in the first round at Eastbourne. Petkovic was her opponent when she had to retire because of the injury from a thirdround match at the Australian Open. Serena Williams has been sidelined because of foot surgery and blood clots in her lung. She returned to practice in April and will open her Eastbourne campaign against Tsvetana Pironkova of Bul-

garia. Many players would be happy to simply ease back into competitive action, but that attitude isn’t in the Williams sisters’ psyche. It says a lot about the state of women’s tennis that the sisters will be considered contenders for the Wimbledon title should they emerge unscathed from Eastbourne. Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark is ranked No. 1 but hasn’t won a Grand Slam title.

the region, said Anna Thill, president of the Greater Mankato Convention and Visitors Bureau. Last year, it drew 60,000 visitors from at least 30 states, and a few foreign countries. The university charges $7 for parking near the practice fields, but that’s only part of the story. The school also receives tremendous exposure. “They do bring people here, and young people are introduced to the campus. There’s certainly a marketing value to the Vikings being here that is difficult to determine,” said Michael Cooper, the university’s media relations director. Whether it’s Westminster, Md., Anderson, Ind., or Spartanburg, S.C., the reflected glamour of having an NFL team in town for a few weeks can go a long way. “You can’t put a price on it, to be honest. Newspaper articles go out every day that have Georgetown, Ky., as the dateline. It puts the community on the map,” said John Simpson, executive director of the Georgetown/Scott County Tourism Commission. The Bengals train at Georgetown College, about 100 miles south of Cincinnati. The Vikings’ presence was enough to get Jake’s Stadium Pizza a mention in Sports Illustrated once. Boyer said his business spikes about 20 percent during camp. “It’s a lot of frosting on the cake,” he said.

Holgorsen takes over reins at West Virginia

FULLERTON, Calif. — Janet Evans hasn’t lost her touch for breaking world records, setting new Master’s marks in the 35-39 age group 15 years after her last competitive race. The four-time Olympic gold medalist swam the 400-meter freestyle in 4 minutes, 23.82 seconds Saturday at the Janet Evans Invitational and four hours later she shattered the 800-freestyle record with a time of 8:59.06. “I think it really shows me Evans where my training is and it’s right about where I thought it was,” Evans said. The 39-year-old mother of two returned to the pool in October in an attempt to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. The 400 Saturday was her first competitive race since the 1996 Atlanta Games, where she failed to qualify for the 400 freestyle and finished sixth in the 800 freestyle. “It was really good. I wanted to go 4:30 so I was really happy,” she said after the 400. Evans has been training under longtime coach Mark Schubert. “I thought well, we’ll do it for three months and we’ll see how it’s going,” Schubert said. “She just always said, ’Just be honest with me, if you don’t think I can do this tell me and I’ll stop.’ “Her practices just got better and better. She was surprising me all the time in practice and surprising herself.” Evans tore through the water Saturday with the same voracious strokes that made her famous more than 20 years ago. She was 17 when she set the world record in the 400 freestyle in winning one of three gold medals at the 1988 Seoul Games, and later set world marks in the 800 and 1,500 freestyle. “I was pleased with my time,” said Evans, who swam solo in the 800. “I know there’s some things I need to work on and I know exactly what they are, so I think it’s good.”

OUTDOORS Fishing, hiking and rafting programs help veterans cope with physical and emotional wounds

Nature’s healing power By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

KIDDER TWP. – On his back, right shoulder and ankle, Juan Rivera carries reminders of the year he served in Iraq. Rivera, 32, suffered injuries in those places while he was deployed to Iraq from 2004 to 2005.

Rivera wears on his wrist. For five days last week, Rivera was able to put behind the pain of his injuries and the haunting reminders of the friends he lost. He did it by taking his family to Francis Walter Dam to participate in a Wounded Warriors outing. Wounded Warriors is a rehabilitative program that helps soldiers wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq to recover and transition back into civilian life. Last week’s event was hosted by Hunts for Healing and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Rivera and his family were kept busy with a variety of outdoors activities, including fishing, geocaching, whitewater rafting and hiking. “You just focus on so many other things when you’re out here,” said Rivera, who lives in Staten Island, N.Y. “We stay busy constantly, but we also have plenty of time to just relax in such a quiet place. That’s what I really like.” Several mentors help out with each Wounded Warrior outing, and most are veterans themselves. Even though they didn’t sustain physical injuries when they served, the men-

tors also find “healing” simply by helping out other veterans. “Working with these guys is just as healing for me as it is for them,” said Mike Dreisch, a Gulf War veteran who also served in Somalia. “You get a sense of family when you’re doing this.” Much of that family atmosphere is made possible by Mindy Piccotti, director of Hunts for Healing. Piccotti owns Ringneck Ridge Hunting Preserve in Laceyville and uses the facility to host eight to 10 Wounded Warrior outings each year. Piccotti is passionate about her Hunts for Healing program and the Wounded Warrior outings, partly because she is a veteran herself, having

served as an Army medic during Vietnam. Piccotti was 18 years old at the time and she found herself treating wounded soldiers with serious, life-threatening injuries. Many times, Piccotti said, the soldiers would ask her if they would be all right. All too often she couldn’t give them an answer. But with Hunts for Healing and the Wounded Warrior programs, Piccotti can do something to create a positive outcome for those who served. “I have answers for them now,” she said. “We’re all getting healed.” Whether it’s through a pheasant hunt at Ringneck Ridge or spending a week

outdoors at the Francis Walter Dam, Piccotti said nature provides the ultimate remedy for the wounded soldiers. “They’re coming back and they’re connecting out here,” she said. “If you get out there in the morning and just listen to the woods wake up, you’ll get something out of it. You’ll heal.” Larry White, who helps as a mentor and is a veteran of Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, said last week’s Wounded Warrior outing was unique because the activities were designed to include entire families. “When they sustain an injury over there, it affects the entire family unit,” White said. “These activities are

designed to embrace the family spirit and strengthen it. “That’s a special person that has come back a hero. We want to give them a place where they can heal and bond.” Rivera did just that. He said he and his children were able to fish for the first time and, despite his injuries, he even went on a bike ride with his kids. “We learned how to fish and the biking was a challenge but it was fun,” Rivera said. “Being here is just so relaxing and quiet and everyone has been so supportive of myself and my family. It really gives you a positive outlook on things.”

sales fall. But we’ve got a long summer ahead of us and plenty of excellent fishing available all around the state. I think anglers will be excited for the warm weather and will be out in large numbers.”

OUTDOORS NOTES SHAD POPULATIONS DOWN IN PA.: The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is seeking public comment on the addition of Susquehanna River American shad to the state Wildlife Action Plan, the document that prescribes conservation measures for species and their critical habitat before they become rarer and more costly to protect and restore. “Populations of American shad have been considerably reduced throughout the East Coast, including Pennsylvania, primarily as a result of dams which have impeded movement of fish to spawning areas,” said Dave Day, PFBC conservation coordinator. “Adding the species to the state Wildlife Action Plan would highlight the importance of this species and would provide the commission with more flexibility to fund, or receive funding for, projects that benefit the species within the drainage of the Susquehanna River.” Public comments will be accepted online or in writing through Wednesday, July 6. Comments can be submitted online at: http://fishandboat.com/promo/form/ swg_amend.htm. Written comments must be postmarked no later than July 6. Written comments must be postmarked no later than July 6 and should be sent to: American Shad/WAP/Public Comments, c/o Dave Day, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, P.O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, Pa. 17106-7000. DEADLINE SET FOR RUFFED GROUSE DRAWING: The

drawing for the Ruffed Grouse Society’s (RGS) National Fundraiser Drawing is closing in and participants have only until June 30 to purchase one of the remaining one thousand tickets to be sold. Purchasers will have an opportunity to win one of three high-end shotguns, with the first prize a one-of-a-kind Remington Model 1100 F-Grade 28 Gauge (skeet choke) semi-automatic shotgun with exhibition-grade wood with a fitted steel butt-plate on the stock and an inlaid skeleton cap on the pistol grip. Other guns include a Caesar Guerini RGS 50th Commemorative APEX grade over and under 28-gauge and a Kimber Valier Grade II; 20 gauge side by side with 28-inch barrels. Tickets for the drawing are $100 and are available at all RGS events or by calling 888-564-6747 or e-mail at: rgs@ruffedgrousesociety.org . The drawing will be held June 30 at RGS Headquarters in Coraopolis, Pa. Proceeds from this raffle will be used to restore and protect grouse and woodcock habitat. VACATIONERS TURN OUT FOR FISH-FOR-FREE DAY: Hundreds of vacationers from across the state participated in half a dozen special fishing events held on Memorial Day, the first of two statewide Fish-For-Free Days this year hosted by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. “This year we decided to try something different and hold the Fish-For-Free events on holidays,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “We know that many families and

their friends spend these holidays at parks and waterways. Our events made it easy for adults and kids who had never fished before to learn the basics of the sport at their favorite vacation spots.” Fish-for-Free Days allow anyone (resident or non-resident) to legally fish. No fishing license is required to fish on these days. All other fishing regulations apply. The second Fishfor-Free Day is Labor Day, Sept. 5. The PFBC’s staff held fishing programs, conducted demonstrations and distributed fishing and boating information at six popular waterways, including Lake Wallenpaupack. The events were held in conjunction with Cabela’s “Wanna Go Fishing for Millions?” national contest. As part of the contest, fish were tagged in eight waters. Every tag carries a prize. The Cabela’s contest started May 14 and runs through July 14. Anglers can register through the PFBC website at www.fishandboat.com/fishformillions.htm for a chance at landing the $2.2 million prize. So far, anglers have landed nearly a dozen prize-winning fish from state waters. And with the popular bass season beginning June18, the PFBC expects more contest fish to be caught. More information on where to find bass and how to catch them is available on the PFBC website at: http://fishandboat.com/bass.htm. Among the tools anglers can use are interactive maps, which allow users to search for waters by name or county.

orget the written warning. That’s the first step that a Pennsylvania Game Commission Wildlife Conservation Officer is supposed to take when they encounter someone intentionally feeding bears. Based on what happened last week at Merli-Sarnoski Park in Lackawanna County, I think it’s time that WCOs forgo the written warning and skip right to issuing citations, which carry a $100 to $200 fine. Here’s what happened. A few weeks ago the PGC Northeast Regional Office was made aware of a bear visiting the park’s beach and picnic areas. Those visiting the park got a kick out of seeing a bear and decided to feed it. At first the bear would approach to within yards of people to accept a handout. As the easy meals became more frequent, the once-wild bear began to approach within feet and even inches. Anglers at the park tossed the bear bluegills and perch. There are pictures of a young man lying on the ground within inches of the bear and another with the bruin on top of a picnic table while people sat on the benches. It was a hoot. And it was also deadly … for the bear. A WCO recently went to the park and found the bear in the picnic area after it was closed. Hoping to chase the bear away once and for all, the WCO fired non-lethal rubber buckshot at the bruin, forcing the animal to flee into the woods. But it came back, and some park-goers ignored warnings and continued to feed the bear. They basically fed it to death. Considering the bear was now habituated to eating out of people’s hands, the PGC was left with no choice but to dispatch it. The risk was too great. “I don’t think people realize how enormously powerful these animals are,” said Tim Conway, the PGC’s information and education supervisor for the northeast region. “Even getting swatted by a bear can cause a tremendous amount of damage to a person.” That includes the 75-pound male that used to roam the picnic area at MerliSarnoski Park. Conway said putting a bear down is a last resort, and it’s something that WCOs don’t like to do. But when people continue to feed one, they are unknowingly sealing the bear’s fate. A bruin that has grown accustomed to being fed by people usually can’t be relocated to another area because it will just seek out more handouts from more people. It’s a pattern of behavior that can’t continue. “Eventually what would happen is the bear could possibly turn on somebody,” Conway said. “We just can’t take that chance.” Perhaps the saddest thing of all is the entire situation could’ve been avoided by simply resisting the temptation to feed a bear. It’s that simple. Unfortunately, the feeding of bears isn’t limited to the incident at MerliSarnoski Park. Conway said there are bear complaints and issues being generated from all over the region. “We are getting bombarded with bear problems and it’s probably one of the worst years I’ve ever seen,” he said. “Our WCOs are running ragged responding to them all.” And that means the potential for a bear-feeding situation to escalate into a bear-human conflict is very real. “We have been steadfast in our message, year after year, that feeding wildlife, especially black bears, will only end in trouble,” said Steve Schweitzer, the PGC’s Northeast Region Office director. Now, maybe it’s time that such incidents end in fines. Tom Venesky covers the outdoors for The Times Leader. Reach him at tvenesky@timesleader.com

Parity one major factor

Tour play hasn’t been so wide open since ’90s By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

Four players have taken their turns at No. 1, the highest number between U.S. Opens in the 25-year history of the world ranking. Four players won their first major in the last 12 months. Four others captured their first World Golf Championship. And it’s largely because of a guy who’s not even playing. The presence Tiger Woods brings to golf is felt even more strongly in his absence. Woods will not be at Congressional, missing the U.S. Open for the first time in 17 years because of lingering injuries to his left leg. Some could argue he has been missing for the last year as he has tried to mend his personal life, his health and his golf swing. He has gone 18 months without winning, paving the way for a new generation of stars to emerge. And they have. Graeme McDowell started it off by winning the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and he peeled back a massive layer of Woods’ mystique at the end of the year by overcoming a four-shot deficit in the final round and beating him in a playoff at the Chevron World Challenge. Louis Oosthuizen (British Open), Martin Kaymer (PGA Championship) and Charl Schwartzel (Masters) — all of them in their 20s — won the next three majors. Lee Westwood ended Woods’ five-year stay atop the world ranking, and Kaymer and Luke Donald since have gone to No. 1 in the world during the last four months. None of that seemed possible when Woods was on top of his game, dominating to such a degree that he won nearly 30 percent of his tournaments and made it look as though no one else had a chance. Are players getting better? Or were they always this good and no one noticed as long as Woods was winning so often? Maybe it takes Woods being gone to realize just how good he was. “Some of the younger players came along when Tiger was on a tear, and they were in his shadow,” Mark O’Meara said. “He was bigger than life. But now that Tiger is somewhat removed from the game, they’ve been able to shine.” With the absence of Woods — and to a lesser extent, Phil Mickelson, who has only one win in the last year — the new landscape in golf features parity not seen in some 20 years. When the 111th edition of the U.S. Open begins outside the nation’s capital in Bethesda, Md., no one will stand out as a clear favorite. “Tiger has been the dominant player in this generation, really since the mid-’90s,” Stewart Cink said. “Eventually, he won’t be anymore. Maybe that’s already happening — we don’t know. He won so many tournaments, maybe there were just less available to win.” That sounds like Colin Montgomerie’s theory from years ago on why it was so hard to win majors. Montgomerie reasoned that Woods was winning two a year, leaving only two majors for everyone else.

“Some of the younger players came along when Tiger was on a tear, and they were in his shadow. He was bigger than life. But (with) Tiger somewhat removed from the game, they’ve been able to shine.”

Now, they’re all up for grabs. Ten players have won the last 10 majors. Only two of those players, Mickelson and Angel Cabrera, had won before. The last time Woods had to skip a major, because of season-ending knee surgery in 2008, there was debate whether an asterisk would be placed next to the winner’s name because Woods wasn’t in the field. There will be no talk of an asterisk at Congressional. Even if Woods were around, this U.S. Open lives up to its name — open. “Anybody can win,” Davis Love III said. “You can’t say it’s going to be either Tiger or Phil or (Jim) Furyk or Luke Donald. It’s wide open. It’s like when Greg Norman was the favorite and everybody looked to him. I don’t know if you can pick a favorite for the U.S. Open.” The U.S. Open is known as the toughest test in golf, and the challenges come from all over. The fairways are narrow, the rough tends to be thick, the greens as firm as any all year. Par tends to be a good score at the U.S. Open, and par can sometimes feel like a birdie. McDowell won at Pebble Beach last year at even-par 284. Four of the last six U.S. Opens have been won at even par or worse. “I know I’m going to have to prepare myself for the feeling that I am playing badly, even when I’m not,” former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy said. “I have to convince myself that par golf — or even 1 or 2 over — is good. It’s just so different from any other week on tour.”

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Facts and figures for the 111th U.S. Open golf championship: Dates: June 16-19. Site: Congressional Country Club (Blue Course). The course: Devereux Emmet designed the original course, which opened in 1924. The club was used for training by the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. After the war, the club hired Robert Trent Jones to revamp the course and make it worthy of a U.S. Open. His son, Rees Jones, has since remodeled the course. It has hosted the U.S. Open in 1964, 1997 and 2011, along with the 1976 PGA Championship. The PGA Tour has held 10 tournaments at Congressional — the Kemper Open, Booz Allen Classic and AT&T National. Length: 7,574 yards. Par: 36-35—71. Format: 72 holes of stroke play. Cut: Top 60 and ties, and anyone within 10 strokes of the lead after 36 holes. Playoff, if necessary: 18 holes of stroke play on June 20. Field: 156 players. Purse: TBA ($7.5 million in 2010). Winner’s share: TBA ($1.35 million in 2010) Defending champion: Graeme McDowell. Last year: Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland became the first European in 40 years to win the U.S. Open. He made only one birdie in a final round of 3-over 74 for a one-shot victory over Gregory Havret. Dustin Johnson began the final round with a three-shot lead, only to make triple bogey on the second hole on his way to an 82, opening the way for Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods to take advantage. Woods bogeyed five of his opening 10 holes. Els and Mickelson stayed in the game through the back nine. No one could catch McDowell, who finished at even-par 284. Last time at Congressional: Ernie Els won his second U.S. Open by closing with a 1-under 69. He hit 5-iron into the dangerous 17th for par, then made a 5-foot par putt on the 18th. Tom Lehman hit into the water on the 17th, while Colin Montgomerie missed a par putt on the 17th to miss another chance in a major. U.S. Open champions at Congressional: Ken Venturi (1964), Ernie Els (1997). Tiger Tales: Tiger Woods will not play the U.S. Open (leg injuries) for the first time since 1994. Noteworthy: Americans have not finished among the top three in three of the last four majors. Key statistic: Ten players have won the last 10 majors.

U. S. O P E N H I STO RY BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — A look at some of the anniversaries of this year’s 111th U.S. Open, to be played June 16-19 at Congressional: 100 years ago (1911): John McDermott became the first American-born player to win a major, and at 19, he remains the youngest player to ever win the U.S. Open. One year after losing to Alex Smith in a playoff, McDermott nearly blew the U.S. Open at Chicago Golf Club by closing with a 79. McDermott made a birdie on the 18th hole to force a playoff, and he shot 80 the next day to defeat Mike Brady (82) and George Simpson (86). 75 years ago (1936): Tony Manero won his only major championship, closing with a 67 at Baltusrol to deny Harry “Lighthorse” Cooper in the second straight major of 1936. Cooper, who blew

a three-shot lead over Horton Smith at the Masters, was four shots clear of Manero going into the final 18 holes of the U.S. Open. But on the Upper Course at Baltusrol, Manero charged past him and to win by two shots. 50 years ago (1961): Gene Littler won his only major in the U.S. Open at Oakland Hills, closing with a 68 for a oneshot victory over Bob Goalby and Doug Sanders, the 54-hole leader. Jack Nicklaus, in his final major as an amateur, tied for fourth. Littler became the eighth player to win a U.S. Amateur and U.S. Open title. This U.S. Open also was noteworthy for being the first time since 1940 that Ben Hogan failed to finish in the top 10. He closed with rounds of 73-73 to tie for 14th. 25 years ago (1986): Raymond Floyd was 43 when he won at Shinnecock Hills

to become the oldest U.S. Open champion, a record that would only last four years. It came two months after Jack Nicklaus won the Masters at age 46. The U.S. Open returned to Shinnecock Hills for the first time in 90 years, and the course put up a strong fight with its vicious wind in the early rounds. Floyd closed with a 66 to rally against Greg Norman, who had the 54-hole lead in every major that year and captured only one of them. 10 years ago (2001): Retief Goosen of South Africa won his first U.S. Open in a major that proved Tiger Woods to be mortal. Woods had just won an unprecedented fourth successive major, but he was no match for Southern Hills in the U.S. Open and he tied for 12th. Goosen won a playoff that should never have been. With a one-shot lead, he missed a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole, then

missed the short par putt and fell into a tie with Mark Brooks. Earlier, Stewart Cink was trying to clear the stage and missed an 18-inch putt that he felt was meaningless. Turns out it cost him a spot in the playoff. Goosen shot 70 to beat Brooks by two shots in the playoff. 5 years ago (2006): Geoff Ogilvy hit a beautiful chip to 6 feet and holed the par putt on the 18th hole for what he figured would be good enough for second place in at Winged Foot. Phil Mickelson had a one-shot lead when he drove into the left rough, struck a tree with his next shot while going for the green, found a plugged lie in the bunker and wound up making double bogey to lose by one shot. Ogilvy closed with a 72 to finish on 5-over 285. He became the first U.S. Open champion since Hale Irwin in 1974 — at Winged Foot — to win without breaking par in any round.

Menard admitted he was hoping for rain, where the field would have then been set by practice speed from Friday’s first session. (The field would have been set by owners points only if Friday’s practices and Saturday’s qualifying were rained out). “We definitely thought it would rain out qualifying today,” said Menard, who drives the No. 27 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing. “So we did one mock run (Friday) early in practice to try to post a good time.

works in a race car, that will be a real strong statement for biobased fuels,” Lynch said. Driver Clint Bowyer agrees. “This whole country needs to be paying attention to this American ethanol partnership,” Bowyer said. “It’s cutting down emissions by 50 percent, so can you imagine if every single car on the road in the U.S. was using it just how much of an impact it would have.” For the people that produce and support ethanol linking up with NASCAR was an easy decision. “We make fuel and they run race cars,” said Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, a group of American ethanol producers. “We couldn’t think of a better partnership.” To hear Buis the partnership is as simple as black and white – well actually, red, white and blue. “No sport is more American and no fuel is more American,” Buis said. So far, according to both Lynch and Buis, the deal has gone off without a hitch. “The whole transition is so under the radar, it’s just not something (the drivers) have on their minds,” Lynch said. Teams are also getting a bit more horse power with the E15 fuel.

L I N E U P 5-Hour Energy 500 scouting report

Good in one race and bad in the other last four years at Pocono Surprise qualifier who never started higher than 17th here. Has four Pocono victories, but last was in June 2007. Has won two of the last three races at Pocono. Has improved from his starting position in last four Pocono races. Two Pocono wins and dominated in runner-up finish in 2009. Qualified OK here in 2010, but ended up with two DNFs. Since winning in July 2003, Pocono finishes been a mixed bag. Finished third in June 2009, but below average in other races. Old school driver has been a runner-up six times here. Aside from a fifth in Aug. 2008 has been pedestrian here. Steady here since 2007, with the exception of one glitch. Has just three top-10s in 16 Pocono starts and none in last four. Led 96 laps last time here, but came home in 10th place. Has 10 top-10s in last 11 Pocono starts, including a win. Finished eighth in last two June races at Pocono. Won in June 2008, but mostly runs hot and cold at Pocono. Was one of Pocono’s best from 1999-2001, posting three wins. Third-year Cup drivers still trying to get a grip on the track. Made Pocono debut last year and placed 21st and 20th. Recent Pocono results probably means winless streak goes on. Hasn’t placed better than 35th in last four Pocono races. Missed both races last year while recovering from blood clots. First Cup race at Pocono, so the learning curve is steep. Was 41st in August 2010, his only career start at Pocono. One of his best track, with two 11th in 2010 and two top-10s. Has solid finishes, but no top-10s here since June 2008. Pretty much a middle-of-the-pack guy at Pocono. Success here early before becoming a start-and-park driver. Has struggled mightily at Pocono since first race here in 2007. Ninth here in last race broke string of mediocrity at Pocono. Drove to a pair of fourth-place finishes here in 2010. Solid but unspectacular in most of his 34 Pocono starts. Runner-up last year, but has a huge amount of problems here. Things haven’t gone as planned after being strong here in 2007. Has started and finished in the back in previous four starts here. Win last August broke streak of mostly ho-hum finishes here. Making the field is a victory after how things have gone. Only one top-10 at Pocono in 10 starts and won’t get another. Has four consecutive DNFs at Pocono, but doesn’t park it now. Former Cup regular has found his niche in Nationwide Series. Forgettable weekend thus far in practice and qualifying. It’s his first crack at Pocono and only second career Cup race.

Regan Smith, who will start fifth, held the pole throughout the middle portion of qualifying until a couple Pocono heavy hitEven more important to consumers that aren’t concerned about trading paint on a Sprint Cup track, the fuel should be anywhere from 17 cents to 89 cents cheaper at the pump than old-fashion gasoline. But don’t run out to the nearest Sunoco looking for the E15 just yet. The gas won’t be commercially available until later this year. But, according to Buis, it won’t be long before consumers will be able to pull up to pumps that will allow them to select a fuel mix with up to 30 percent ethanol. NASCAR’s green initiatives go beyond the new gas powering its race cars and trucks, however. “There are so many NASCAR green initiatives that you can’t keep up with them all,” Bowyer said. “This is very good for this sport and our fans.” Lynch was quick to point out NASCAR’s recycling program, which he said is the biggest such program in sports. But at Pocono Raceway, there is an even bigger symbol of the sport’s effort to be more environmentally friendly. The track is powered by the world’s largest solar farm at a sporting venue. “Pocono is always a big week,” Lynch said, adding that the track’s solar farm makes it even more so for him. “We are incredibly proud of it.”

ters took their laps. Denny Hamlin bumped Smith and then he was bumped by Jeff Gordon before Busch took control a short time later. Gordon will start third and Hamlin fourth. Both lead active drivers with four Pocono victories each.

“I got a little concerned right before I went out because there were a couple of good cars that weren’t getting themselves in the top 10,” Gordon said. “(Greg) Biffle went like two cars before me and he was way back.”

Hornish happy just to get a shot at Pocono Former IndyCar champion has one-race deal to drive today for Front Row Motorsports. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

LONG POND — Sam Hornish Jr. got the call from Front Row Motorsports a week ago offering him a one-race deal opportunity for today’s 5-Hour Energy 500, the Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway. For some, a race at the triangular track would be a daunting task met with dread. But not Hornish. With six career starts at Pocono, Hornish has an average finish of 17th. “If I wouldn’t have been such an idiot the first time I came here (he finished 42nd) then it would have been a lot better than that,” Hornish, 31, said while standing in front of his team’s hauler in the garage area at the 2.5-mile racetrack in Monroe County. “That first time I came here I qualified 41st and I finished 42nd. I was involved in three accidents before the halfway point,” said Hornish, recalling the June 8, 2008 race. He learned that day that the track is unforgiving, patience is a virtue and the goal isn’t to be up front early but to be in contention at the end. Using his open-wheel

racing skills, he’s made the most of his limited runs at Pocono. The three-time IndyCar champion – and 2006 winner of the Indianapolis 500 – has four top-10 finishes in his six races at the track, including a fourth-place finish in the August 2008 race. “I love coming here,” Hornish said. “It’s one of my favorite tracks on the circuit. A lot of other people don’t like it. I don’t know why.” He has never won a Sprint Cup series race, but he has two topfive finishes, including one at Pocono. Hornish had spent the past three years racing in the No. 77 Mobile1 Racing car owned by Roger Penske. When the sponsor pulled out after last year, Penske opted to run a one-car operation with the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge driven by Brad Keselowski and Hornish, still under contract but without a Cup ride, turned to driving part time for Penske in the Nationwide Series. In five races in that NASCAR circuit, he has one top-10 finish and sits 26th in the standings. But he’s never lost hope that he would get some “one-off” rides on the Sprint Cup series this year. “Even when I knew I wasn’t going to be running full time in the Cup series, I said I hope I get something at Pocono. Of all the

of the No. 38 Ford, was committed to race a Camping World Truck Series race in Texas this weekend. “You’ve got to enjoy coming to a track where you’ve had success,” Hornish said. “I’m hoping we can go out there and have a good time.” And while he noted a win is every driver’s goal, he said realistically he’s at Pocono to help get Front Row Motorsports and owner Bob Jenkins into the all-important top 35 in the owner’s standings. A spot in the top 35 guarantees a team gets to race each weekend. Currently, the team is 38th, 22 points behind the 35th position. “Our big thing is we don’t need a home run. We need a double. They’re obviously trying to get back into the top 35. My big thing for them is to be able to go out and run a smart race, (stay) out of trouble and if we can get out of here with a top 20 that would be great.” As for plans the rest of the year, Hornish said there’s nothing he can report. But he knows that a good run today at Pocono, where he’ll start 26th, could draw the attention of other owners looking for a driver.

places I thought that I might get an opportunity to come and run at … this was the one I thought I had the best chance.” Hornish said his solid record at the track, plus the fact he lives in Defiance, Ohio – about the same distance from Pocono in miles (515) as the Pocono race itself (500) – made Pocono a good bet. He plans to take advantage of the Andrew M. Seder, a Times Leader opportunity that arose because staff writer, may be reached at 570Travis Kvapil, the normal driver 829-7269.

Menard grabs second spot after hoping for rain By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

LONG POND — Like everyone else at Pocono this weekend, Paul Menard and his team saw the weather forecast for Saturday. With the possibility of rain interrupting qualifying and setting the field for today’s 5Hour Energy 500 according to practice speeds, Menard went all out on Friday. And the 30year-old, still looking for his first Sprint Cup victory, finished with the second-highest practice speed. “We were really hoping for

NASCAR

NOTEBOOK rain (Saturday) so we could be starting second (today),” Menard said. “If we saw raindrops, we were gonna make sure to say it.” But the rain held off early Saturday afternoon, forcing Menard to earn his spot through qualifying. No matter. Menard and his No. 27 Chevrolet finished second anyway, posting a speed of 171.422 to

join pole-sitter Kurt Busch in the front row for today’s race. “To go out there and qualify second by actually getting a lap down was cool,” Menard said. “It’s more meaningful that way.” For Menard, this is the second-highest start of his career, having won the pole once (Daytona, 2008). His best finish came later that season at Talladega, where he took second. His best start at eight previous tries at Pocono Raceway had been 17th. Track temperatures are often a concern for qualifying, where a cooler surface leads to better

times. But overcast skies made sure that didn’t impact Menard’s run, despite him being the 43rd car out of 44 to take his turn. “We really thought it would rain, so we posted a good lap in practice, which made us go out late,” Menard said. “When you look at hourly forecasts, it was 70 degrees from start to finish, so the track conditions didn’t change a lot. “It might have gotten a little bit hotter, but I think we got a little bit of cloud cover right at the end of qualifying, so that probably helped.”

Quickly skinned It didn’t take long to determine which one of the 44 cars would be the odd one out for today’s field of 43. Mike Skinner, two weeks shy of his 54th birthday, wrecked in relatively violent fashion for a qualifying run. The veteran lost control of his No. 60 Toyota in turn 1, sliding out and smashing hard into the SAFER barrier on the inside wall and tearing apart his front end. Skinner was in line to claim the 43rd and final spot, which instead went to Scott Wimmer

because of the crash. George wins ARCA race The weather held out long enough to get in all of the Sprint Cup qualifying, but the ensuing ARCA race wasn’t as fortunate. Saturday’s Pocono 200 went to Tim George Jr., who held the lead when the race was called after 58 laps out of 80. Cousins Chase Mattioli and Nick Igdalsky – grandsons of track owners Drs. Joe and Rose Mattioli – finished 18th and 19th, respectively. Hazleton native Steve Fox took 29th.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Ron Hornaday Jr. got his record 48th career NASCAR Trucks Series victory in the caution-filled race at Texas despite crossing the finish line in second place Friday night. Johnny Sauter pulled away on the final restart with two laps left, but the series points leader was black-flagged by NASCAR because he dropped from the outside lane to the inside in front of Hornaday’s Chevrolet before crossing the start-finish line. Sauter was dropped to 22nd place.

race-high 58 laps (of 168) at the 11⁄2-mile, high-banked Texas track. He spun his Chrevrolet’s tires on the restart as he dropped down the track. “We both spun the tires and I left a lane down there for him,” Sauter said while walking back to the garage. Asked if he would appeal the ruling, Sauter harshly responded, “It’s official, isn’t it?” There were a track-record 10 cautions for 46 laps. The race also set Texas records with 11 leaders and 19 lead changes — the most dramatic coming without the leading car being passed. “As soon as the green dropped, he dropped in my lane, I was yelling, ‘He’s in my lane!

Better stick by the rules! He’s in my lane!”’ Hornaday said. “If they didn’t black flag him and gave it to him, I would have been fine either way. ... But they stuck to their guns and it was a call. I would have expected it if it was me.” Hornaday and crew chief Jeff Hensley said teams were warned repeatedly during the drivers’ meeting before the race about staying in their chosen lanes on restarts. The 52-year-old Hornaday, driving for Kevin Harvick Inc., won for the third time in Texas. Hornaday and Sauter are the only series regulars with wins in the first nine races this season. Sauter still held onto the series points lead, by eight over Hornaday going into an extended break before the next race July 7 in Kentucky.

Israel plans expansion of solar-generated power By MOSHE EDRI Associated Press

KIBBUTZ KETURA, Israel — Israel is planning an expansion of its solar-generated electricity with preparations to bring the first of more than 40 new solar plants onto the grid this summer. Arava Power is building the plants, including the 100 million shekel ($30 million) Ketura Sun solar field in Israel’s scorching Negev desert, which will begin providing electricity to some 1,000 residents this summer. Israel is pushing to become a world leader in alternative energy, with the government backing cutting-edge technologies and setting a goal to have 10 percent of its electricity generated by alternative means by 2020. Israel depends almost entirely for its energy on imported coal and natural gas. Its gas supply from Egypt has become more volatile since President Hosni Mubarak’s February ouster because of attacks on the pipeline and criticism in Egypt over the pricing of the exports. “Our goal is to green the grid so much that Israel will be the first major economy that will transform itself from carbon-based to solarbased,” Arava President Yosef Abramowitz said Friday. Once connected, the 20-acre (8-hectare) Ketura solar plant will produce nearly 5 megawatts. It is expected to sell power to Israel’s Electric Company for 1.52 shekels (45 cents) per kilowatt-hour See ISRAEL, Page 3D

Employees are allowed to discuss the conditions of their employment with co-workers — in the break room, in the parking lot or on Facebook. That was the National Labor Relations Board’s basic position involving an unfair labor practices case the agency brought against an employer. The backstory: A worker — at home, on Facebook — had posted derogatory comments about a supervisor. Co-workers read the post, “liked it” and In most workplaces, added barbs. The employemployees are “at er fired the will.” Texting or original author tweeting workers for violating a can be fired simply company policy that barred because the boss doesn’t think a post employees from depicting reflects well on the the company “in any way” company or the on social individual. media. But the labor relations board said that the policy was too broad and that it infringed on the rights of workers — union and non-union — to engage in “protected concerted activities.” In settling the case, the employer agreed to narrow its policy so it did not restrict employees from discussing wages, hours and working conditions with co-workers and others while not at work. Employment law attorney Shelly Freeman warned people attending last week’s Heartland Labor and Employment Law Conference in Overland Park, Kan., that case law and regulatory opinions are building more slowly than the social media use they’re trying to control. In most workplaces, employees are “at will.” Texting or tweeting workers can be fired simply because the boss doesn’t think a post reflects well on the company or the individual. Lawyers and government agencies will successfully object if the firings violate laws governing discrimination, harassment or other legal protections, such as the “concerted activities” cited in the above Facebook case. But if and until the law catches up with social media use, any worker concerned with job security and any employer concerned with protecting an image online should make sure they’re on the same page. Organizations need a social media policy that’s specific and updated. Employees should know exactly what it says. Diane Stafford is the workplace and careers columnist at The Kansas City Star.

Surprise Dad with a heavy-hitting Father’s Day at the Baseball Hall of Fame IF YOU don’t have plans for Father’s Day, may I suggest a jaunt over the state line and into Cooperstown, N.Y? Next weekend is full of events at the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, the Third Annual Hall of Fame Classic, a seven-inning legends exhibition game featuring several Hall of Fame members and a score of other retired major league players, will play ball at the historic Doubleday Field at 2 p.m. The game is preceded by a parade

ANDREW M. SEDER STEALS & DEALS down Main Street that steps off at noon from the corner between Main and Fair streets. Hall of Fame members scheduled to be featured in the game include Andre Dawson, Goose Gossage, Phil Niekro, Jim Rice, Ozzie Smith and Dick Williams. Other former major leaguers who just didn’t rise to the level of “Hall of Famer” will also be on hand, including Willie Wilson, Doug Glanville and Bill Lee. All will ride on trolleys in the

parade. Make it a weekend if you can. Thanks to Price Chopper, a visit to the Hall of Fame on Saturday will be free. Just show your Price Chopper AdvantEdge Card at the ticket counter at you’ll be admitted for free, up to a family of four per card. The museum is open from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. While the Hall of Flame Classic has become an annual event, so has Stanton Lanes’ “Kids Bowl Free” summer program. This year’s theme is “Say No To Drugs, Say Yes To Bowling,” and aims to give area youth a safe environment for summer recreation. The alley has also invited

law enforcement officers to “provide safety tips during the free bowling times,” said Stanton Lanes’ proprietor Paul Waliczek. Stanton Lanes will provide each area elementary, middleor high- school-aged student, three free games of bowling every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursday from noon to 5 p.m. starting this week. The only charge would be shoe rental if needed. “Yes, it is a significant investment on our part,” said Terri Vesek, general manager of Stanton Lanes, “but we believe it is an investment in our community’s future. Bowling is a lifetime sport that can be enjoyed by anyone — any

age, any size and any background. We believe this program will give the kids something to do this summer that is positive and constructive.” There are other facets to the program, including enrollment in the President’s Fitness Challenge.

and Massachusetts for $525. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One main reason for this is Pennsylvania allows out-ofstate systems to register to sell their SRECs in PA,â&#x20AC;? Igdalsky said. To fix this problem state Rep. Chris Ross, R-Chester, proposed Bill 1580 to increase the amount of solar energy utility companies are required to purchase between the years 2012 and 2015. Katy Gresh, a spokeswoman with the state Department of Environmental Protection, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pennsylvania taxpayers and ratepayers have offered extraordinarily generous support for the solar industry over the past several years, both through the AEPS mandate and through the $180 million in grants and rebates included in the 2008 Alternative Energy Investment Act.â&#x20AC;?

She said as good as the programs have worked, other factors need to be considered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we want to see continued growth of this and other energy industries across the commonwealth, we need to keep in mind that all costs associated with the solar renewable energy credit market are passed on to ratepayers. We will continue to monitor this situation going forward, and we will seek to strike the appropriate balance that is sustainable both for this industry and for ratepayers.â&#x20AC;? Pitcavage said he would also like to see Pennsylvania utilities only buy SRECs generated within the state. This could boost the price of SRECs up again and make Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solar market more competitive with neighboring states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Solar created in Pennsylva-

nia should stay in Pennsylvania,â&#x20AC;? Bittner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why should utility companies charge PA customers fees for energy created in other states?â&#x20AC;? Despite this, Igdalsky firmly believes the $18 million solar farm was worth the investment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good business move,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For one it was the right thing to do. We have shown the sports world and fans that solar can be done and done right.â&#x20AC;? Pitcavage said he has heard of several solar companies and specially trained solar technicians migrating to New Jersey where the market is strong. He plans on weathering this drop and stay in the area. Bittner said with any new industry, glitches arise, but believes solar will be around for a long time.

a smaller on-grid solar project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an $8.5 million collection of 40 solar panel systems that supplies 2 megawatts, enough to power about 500 homes. Israel has dozens of solar

fields, but most are pilot projects to test new technologies. Abramowitz said the company aims to produce 400 megawatts at a cost of $2 billion.

HAZLETON -- CAN DO, Inc., Greater Hazletonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development organization, celebrated another year during its 55th annual dinner held Tuesday at Best Western Genetti Inn & Suites, Hazleton. Board Chairman John J. Spevak shared details of CAN DOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous year, including how the organization is coping with challenging economic times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a year of transition as we continue to deal with a difficult economy while remaining focused on our mission, which is to improve the quality of life in Greater Hazleton through the creation of employment opportunities. While land sales have been slow, we are looking to rely on different revenue sources, including our water and sewer utilities, railroad operations and leasing activity, to help sustain our organization and improve it for the future,â&#x20AC;? he said. It was also announced that in May, during CAN DOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual meeting, the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors elected officers and at-large board members. In addition to Spevak being elected chairman, CAN DO officers approved for 2011-2012 in-

purchase SRECs generated within the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Currently, solar energy credits from Ohio and Washington, D.C. are being purchased by Pennsylvania utility companies,â&#x20AC;? Pitcavage said. Lissette Santana, spokesperson from electric company PPL, confirmed recently her company purchased 25,000 SRECs for an eight-and-a-halfyear period for $149 per SREC. When asked where the solar credits were from, she responded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was one winning bidder, location is undisclosed.â&#x20AC;? Pitcavage and Bittner have noted the selling price utility companies are paying for SRECs have dropped as a result. Pocono Raceway President Brandon Igdalsky, has seen this drop first hand. Overseeing the largest solar farm at a sporting venue in the world, the Pocono Raceway solar farm has 40,000 solar panels and produces enough energy to power the race track facility and 1,000 local homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our system is expected to generate roughly 3.6 to 3.8 million kilowatt hours each year,â&#x20AC;? Igdalsky said. Igdalsky said the prices of SRECs have dropped from $300 to $80. New Jersey, for example, is selling SRECs for $655,

OFFICE COACH

Firm’s cell-phone policy needs to be revisited

By MARIE G. MCINTYRE McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Q: Our office has an outdated cell phone policy that doesn’t address text messaging. It simply says “If an employee receives an important call on their cell phone, they are to leave the office and proceed into the hall to take the call.” At least half of our employees keep cell phones on their desk and do a lot of texting during the workday. Many people feel that management needs to step up and deal with this issue, because texting distracts people and reduces productivity. Don’t you think we should have a texting policy? A: Actually, your company needs a more general guideline, not another specific rule. Phone calls and texts are only two examples of the many personal pursuits that can make people less productive. Others might include online shopping, running errands, reading magazines, exploring social media, or anything else that takes time away from work. For that reason, your policy should simply indicate that during work hours, employees are expected to avoid engaging in personal activities which interfere with productivity. Providing examples would be helpful, as long as the policy clearly states that the list is not comprehensive. Management should introduce the new policy in a staff meeting, allowing time for questions and discussion. If texting has been a particular problem, then that issue should be specifically addressed. For example: “Texting has become a significant distraction from work for some employees. From now on, everyone is expected to limit texting about personal matters to breaks and lunch. Exceptions can be made for critical situations.” After that, anyone who continues to over-text should be dealt with individually. Finally, this would also be an excellent time to eliminate that rather silly “call in the hall” cell phone rule. Al-

Phone calls and texts are only two examples of the many personal pursuits that can make people less productive. Others might include online shopping, running errands, reading magazines, exploring social media, or anything else that takes time away from work.

lowing personal conversations on a desk phone, while banishing mobile talkers to the corridor, makes absolutely no sense. Q: I recently applied for the supervisory position in my department, but management selected an applicant from outside the company. Although my boss said I was not qualified for the position, he has now asked me to train the woman who was hired. If he thinks I’m not qualified, how can he expect me to train someone else? A: While your confusion is understandable, your manager’s request actually does make sense. External candidates are typically chosen for their management expertise, industry experience or some other useful attribute. What they lack, however, is an understanding of their new surroundings. As a knowledgeable insider, you are being asked to orient this woman to the company, not teach her how to supervise. Although your recent rejection may have left you feeling slightly resentful, you need to recognize that training your boss presents a valuable opportunity. Not only will she see that you are well-regarded, but you will also be able to impress her with your competence and helpful spirit. If you handle this interaction wisely, she might even recommend you for the next supervisory opening. Marie G.

Senators want to stamp out ‘shoe tax’ By ROB HOTAKAINEN McClatchy Newspapers

AP FILE PHOTO

WASHINGTON — U.S. consumers would see a sharp drop in the price of imported shoes — and that’s nearly all shoes sold in the United States — if a bipartisan group of senators is successful in stamping out the nation’s “shoe tax.” “It is kind of a hidden tax, and getting rid of it would be nice to do,” Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington state, a member of the Senate Finance Committee, said Wednesday. Cantwell has teamed up with Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington state and Republican Sens. Roy Blunt of Missouri and Pat Roberts of Kansas to promote the Affordable Footwear Act, which would eliminate roughly half the duties on imported shoes. Cantwell, the measure’s chief sponsor, said consumers were paying a tax of up to 40 percent

Manager Melissa Kotonski restocks the shelves the Famous Footwear store in Aurora, Ohio. Senators are trying to stomp out a shoe taxthat they say could save consumers hundreds of millions of dollars.

in some cases. Backers said the legislation would lead to more sales for retailers and more savings for consumers. While the bill has yet to arouse any opposition, it’s a hit with the shoe industry. Last year, it would have eliminated about $800 million of the $2 billion collected on imported children’s and low-cost shoes. “It would be fantastic. ... It would allow (consumers) to buy a second pair or buy a pair that they

normally would have to put off another month,” said Bill Snowden, a shoe distributor from Bellevue, Wash., and the senior vice president of Topline Corp., which employs 100 people. The shoe tax, which dates to the 1930s, originally was aimed at protecting a manufacturing sector that’s all but disappeared in the United States, according to the American Apparel & Footwear Association, a national trade organization. Over the last two decades,

nearly all shoe production has moved outside the country. The group said that 99 percent of the shoes bought in the United States last year were produced internationally,makingitvirtuallyimpossible for Americans to avoid the tax. While tariffs on different shoes vary, they might result in a $15 pair of shoes selling for as much as $25, Snowden said. In past years, Snowden said, it’s been difficult to get members of Congress to focus on shoes, given their preoccupation with war, the economy and other big issues of the day. Even though the legislation has stalled, Snowden said it had won supportfrommanyDemocratsand Republicans in both houses of Congress. “There have been so many other major, major pressing issues ... that it gets bypassed, unfortunately,” he said. Cantwell said that could happen again this year.

FDA: Some chicken may have small amount of arsenic By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that some chicken meat may contain small amounts of arsenic, though the agency is stressing that the amount is too tiny to be dangerous to people who eat it. The FDA said Wednesday that a new study developed by the agency shows that an ingredient in chicken feed that contains arsenic, called Roxarsone, may makeitswayintopartsofthebird that are eaten. Previous studies have indicated that the arsenic was eliminated with chicken waste. Pfizer Inc., which makes the feed ingredient, said Wednesday that it will pull it off the market in the United States. Had the company not stopped sales, the FDA could have eventually banned the product since it contains a known carcinogen. Many poultry producers have already stopped feeding their birds the ingredient, which has been used since the 1940s to kill parasites and promote growth. The FDA said that people

shouldnotstopeatingchickenthat may have been fed the drug. Michael Taylor, FDA’s deputy commissioner for foods, said the study raised “concerns of a very low but completely avoidable exposure to a carcinogen.” Pfizer said in a statement that a subsidiary, Alpharma LLC, is suspending sales next month in response to the FDA findings. The company said it is waiting a month so producers have time to transition their birds off the drug. The ingredient will also be pulled off the market for swine and turkeys, though the FDA only studied chickens. Scott Brown, of Pfizer Animal Health’s Veterinary Medicine Research and Development division, said the company also sells the ingredient in about a dozen other countries. He said Pfizer is reaching outtoregulatoryauthoritiesinthose countriesandwilldecidewhetherto sell it on an individual basis. In the study of 100 chickens, the FDA found that chickens that had

eaten the Roxarsone had higher levels of inorganic arsenic — as opposed to organic arsenic, which is naturally occurring — in their livers than chickens which had not eaten the Roxarsone. Inorganic arsenic is more toxic than the naturally occurring form. The agency attempted to study levels of arsenic found in chicken muscle — breasts and legs, for example—inadditiontotheliversbut that test ran into complications. An agency official said Wednesday that they would expect about 40 times less arsenic to be found in the muscle than in the liver. Roxarsone has long been a concern for environmental and consumer groups worried about its presence in chicken waste and the resulting effects on human health in areas with high chicken production. Maryland state lawmakers have attempted to force a ban in that state, saying the arsenic ends up in the Chesapeake Bay. “Arsenic in chicken production poses a risk not only to human

health, but to the environment,” said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist with Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports. “We need to get arsenic out of food production altogether.” Consumers Union and other groups praised the FDA’s move but asked the agency to go further and encourage bans of other animal drugsthatcontainarsenic.TheFDA said it is looking at another drug made by Pfizer, Nitarsone, which contains arsenic and is fed to chickens and turkeys but is used much lessfrequentlythanRoxarsone.Officials said they are in talks with the companyaboutthatdrugbutdonot have any data specific to it. The National Chicken Council, which represents companies that produce and process chickens, said in a statement that the ingredient has been used to maintain good health in chickens for many years, and that it is used in “many, but not all” flocks. “Chicken is safe to eat,” the group said.

MarketPulse SMALLER CUSHIONS Strong profits mean companies are sitting on more cash than ever, but there’s a catch. Their obligations are rising too. Companies have more in lease payments, debt repayments and other items that they’re contractually required to pay. That means their cash cushions may not be as fat as some had thought, says Credit Suisse analyst David Zion. Investors had hoped those cash cushions would go toward dividend increases and acquisitions. At the end of 2010, companies in the S&P 500 had enough cash to pay for six months of their contractual obligations, according to Zion. That’s better than 2007, when companies had less than four months’ worth. But it’s the same level they had in 2004.

PERU’S YOUR PROBLEM Mining stocks tanked Monday, and it wasn’t because of weaker metals prices. Blame Peru. Ollanta Humala won the country’s presidency, and the leftist former army officer talked early in the campaign about higher taxes and royalties on businesses. Peru’s stock market dropped 12.4 percent Monday, the day after the election, on worries he will be anti-business. Phoenix-based miner Southern Copper (SCCO) lost nearly as much, 11.3 percent. Peruvian mines produce about 7 percent of the world’s copper and 16 percent of its silver, says Deutsche Bank. Standard & Poor’s says it’s too early to change its ratings on Peruvian companies. Humala has recently said he’s more like Brazil’s last president, who oversaw strong economic growth, than Venezuela’s, who has nationalized businesses.

BRINGING UP THE REAR Utilities and telecoms have been some of the best stocks since May because investors want companies that will hold up in a slowing economy. But here’s one note of caution: These industries turned in the worst profit results last quarter. Total earnings for utilities in the S&P 500 index grew just 0.1 percent. At Southern Co., for example, firstquarter earnings per share fell 17 percent after a milder winter meant fewer heaters were running. That led to less electricity demand for Southern. Telecom profit growth was hardly better, at 0.5 percent for the industry. Financial analysts don’t expect the pair to do much better this quarter. They forecast profit to rise 1.5 percent for telecoms and drop 1.6 percent for utilities.

When bad things happen to good companies Don Cleven, portfolio manager of the Touchstone Mid-Cap Value fund (TCVAX), likes to own shares in companies that have temporary problems but that are still good long-term bets. Top holdings include energy company AGL Resources and software maker Synopsys. He recently talked about his strategy.

InsiderQ&A

Mid-cap stocks have risen 31 percent over the past year. Is it tougher to find values? The market is still up a lot in the last two years. But I would say we’re selectively bullCleven ish. Not all stocks have gone up together. We’re finding interesting ideas in (companies that do well later in economic recoveries). Could you give some examples? So you have one like Quest Diagnostics (DGX). Quest is the largest domestic clinical lab. But ultimately, their volume is tied to patient visits: people going to the doctor. Patient visits really struggled during the recession, which is ultimately tied to employment, insurance (and) increasing co-pays. Even though their business is currently depressed because of this issue ... they are showing some signs of stabilization.

Some real estate is rising

Real estate has been one of the best investments of 2011 — if you’re talking about commercial real estate. Real estate investment trusts, known as REITS, have been hot. Mutual funds that own REITs, which control apartment complexes, shopping centers and other commercial property, returned 9.5 percent this year through Tuesday. They returned 31.3 percent and 27.1 percent the last two years. “The REIT industry is in a state of nirvana,” Citi analyst Michael Bilerman wrote in a report. REITs are attractive in part because they pay at least 90 percent of their income as dividends. Financial analysts say several factors are behind their rise this year: • Low interest rates. The 10-year Treasury’s yield is below 3 percent. That’s forcing income investors to look elsewhere. Health Care REIT (HCN), which owns assisted living facilities, yields 5.5 percent. Associated

Estates Realty (AEC), an apartment owner, yields 4.2 percent. Low rates also make borrowing cheaper and has created a “Snow White magic mirror making everyone (in the REIT industry) look pretty, at least for the moment,” FBR analyst Sri Nagarajan wrote in a report. • Improving demand. The U.S. homeownership rate fell in the first quarter to its lowest level since 1998. That means more renters are apartment hunting. For health care REITs, investors expect the first wave of baby boomers to start heading to assisted living and senior centers. A caveat: the REIT rally has brought down their dividend yields. Equity REITs have an average yield of 3.4 percent. That’s above the yield on the 10-year note, but below the 4.7 percent that REITs averaged the last five years. Another concern: the slowing economy. It could hurt office building owners.

You like to own companies that have temporary problems. What stocks in your portfolio fit that model? I’ll give you a brand new one, which is Newell Rubbermaid (NWL). The stock was punished for lowering guidance not only because the consumer is weaker than they expected but also because of inflationary (pressures). Rubbermaid (uses) a lot of plastic, that’s resin. ... The third reason that they didn’t say, which I think makes it kind of interesting here, is that they’re about to announce their new CEO. I really think one of the main reasons they were doing this is they had already chewed through the cushion of their guidance and they didn’t want to hand new guidance to a new CEO to turn around and disappoint (investors). So I think they’re clearing the decks for the new incoming CEO that should be announced in weeks.

One of your top holdings is Cintas (CTAS), the uniform company. What’s the story there? Cintas is the largest uniform rental company in the country. Obviously, it’s partially tied to employment. Right now, even though the employment picture is slowly recovering, it’s still pretty bleak. ... (But) everyone sees Cintas trucks rolling around. They’re already coming into the building. If, in the building, somebody hires three more people, you’re hanging up three more uniforms, there’s no incremental cost. It’s all profit. As employment slowly improves, it drives very strong, very attractive incremental (profit) margins. And the stock is cheap anyways on a cash-flow basis.

DIVIDEND YIELD

YTD RETURNS, INCLUDING DIVIDENDS

The 10-year Treasury’s yield remained below 3 percent last week, close to its lowest level since December. Investors frightened by the slowing recovery bought Treasurys in search of safety, and higher Treasury prices mean lower yields. Mortgage rates also fell. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.49 percent last week from 4.55 percent a week earlier.

InterestRates

Most kinds of real estate investment trusts have done better than the rest of the stock market this year. And they have bigger yields.

So Quest’s growth is ahead of them? Exactly. As people start going back to the doctor, you’ll see incremental volume (increase). What happens is they’re already running their plants, and they’re already running to the doctor (to get lab tests). So if they’re just picking up more tests, that’s really ... very healthy profit for them.

Why do you like this strategy — focusing on the bad things happening to good companies? One of the inefficiencies remaining in the market is this obsession with near-term (results). If you’re willing to take advantage of lack of visibility because you are patient and can look in the long term, you can find some great values. ... Even at times when the market is expensive, you can always find stocks that are cheap that people are just unwilling to wait around (for) because they don’t think this is a quarter where everything is going to get better.

Stocks to take to the bank

Financial stocks have become an investing hot potato. But that doesn’t mean you should avoid them altogether. If you do, you’ll lose out on some strong companies. Taken as a whole, the financial industry isn’t doing well: Financial companies in the S&P 500 are down 7 percent this year, more than any other industry group in the index. They’ve been pulled down by giants like AIG, which has fallen 42 percent this year. AIG and other financial institutions took too many risks in the bubble years, fueling the financial crisis. But many regional banks took fewer risks. They had a straightforward business model: Provide bank accounts and loans to local customers. For some, that approach has brought steady returns. Here are the 10 stocks in the S&P 1,500 bank group with the best one-year total return. Sterling Bancshares, the best performer of the group, is a holding company for Sterling Bank, which serves small businesses in Texas. Cathay General Bancorp operates mostly in California. And Signature Bank serves New York City. SOURCE: FactSet

Iraq veteran return home, struggles to find job

GOP debate is a must-see televised event

Kevin Blaum’s column on government, life and politics appears every Sunday. Contact him at kblaum@timesleader.com.

RICHARD L. CONNOR OPINION

Gov. Perry’s image far cry from reality

YOU ONLY have one chance to make a good first impression. True or not, seven Republican presidential candidates will be doing their best to impress tomorrow

evening. Live from the Sullivan Arena on the campus of Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H., contenders for the Republican presidential nomination will meet in the Granite State’s first presidential debate of the 2012 cycle. Home of the Hawks’ women’s and men’s ice hockey teams, Sullivan Arena will become a large television studio for this event sponsored by CNN, the New Hampshire Union Leader and WMUR-TV. Absent from the confab will be former Utah governor and Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman Jr., former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani and the ex-governor of Alaska, and “Paul Revere historian in residence,” Sarah Palin. While their absence is unfortunate, be assured you will not be disappointed Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann will be there, as will former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania. Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich, speechifying, same stage, two hours … priceless. They will be joined by former Minnesota governor Timothy Pawlenty, former Massachusetts governor Willard Mitt Romney, Texas congressman Ronald Paul and businessman Herman Cain. Saint Anselm hosted similar debates in 2007 featuring Democratic presidential candidates on June 3 and the Republicans on June 5. Following the GOP forum, polls gave winning nods to Paul and Romney, followed by Giuliani and the eventual nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona. Viewers at the time expected much more from Giuliani and thought he turned in a dismal performance. They were right, and the Giuliani campaign never recovered. At the same time Ron Paul ignited a movement, Romney failed to excite anyone outside the New England ZIP codes, and McCain became grudgingly acceptable. What was true then remains so now: Saint Anselm matters. And all the candidates, those debating and those who declined, know it. Indeed much is at stake tomorrow from 8 to 10 p.m. as CNN televises the first presidential debate in the first primary state of 2012. Pawlenty and Santorum have the most to gain should they distinguish themselves before a national television audience, most of which will be observing them for the first time. Their task will be to throw conspicuous slabs of raw meat to the increasingly extreme primary base of the Republican Party while not scaring the daylights out of independent voters who decide general elections. It’s a troublesome needle to thread, as both candidates have voiced support for the unpopular House Republican budget that eliminates Medicare for Americans under 55 and replaces it with a health care coupon for them to tote, hat in hand, to insurance companies in an attempt to get coverage when they reach 65. Worse, Bachmann and Paul actually voted for it (as did our local Republican coupon duo of Lou Barletta and Tom Marino). In Monday’s showdown Romney has the most to lose. As the Republican frontrunner we need only count the number of barbs hurled in his direction and measure how well he parries each wave of the assault. While it will not be easy for Romney to improve upon his overall standing, it’s difficult to imagine he will not see some slippage in post-debate surveys. The thoughtful Huntsman, the experienced Giuliani and, well, Palin each saw the emerging dynamics of this impending dustup and are staying away. They seem content to allow others the opportunity to soften up the current leader. What a cast. This is must-see political theater. Is it any wonder Herman Cain, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, will make the best impression?

U.S. Navy veteran Eric Smith considered himself lucky to return home to Baltimore, Md., after tours in Afghanistan and Iraq but has found finding full-time employment difficult.

FIGHTING

for employment W

By ROB HOTAKAINEN McClatchy Newspapers

ASHINGTON — Eric Smith calls himself one of the lucky ones, returning home from the war in Iraq in 2008 with two arms and two legs. But his luck has yet to produce a full-time job. In the past year, the 26-year-old Baltimore veteran has found part-time work as a bartender — which paid $4 an hour, plus tips — and as a mail sorter, which paid $8 an hour. And when he was desperate enough for income, he volunteered to be a test patient in a drug study, which earned him $1,200 for a four-night hospital stay. It’s not exactly what Smith had in mind.

After getting bored with high school, he quit as a 15-year-old sophomore and enlisted in the Navy two years later, serving two deployments in Iraq. He became a senior hospital corpsman, leading a four-man team in a 20-bed intensive care unit, gaining experience that he thought would easily translate into a goodpaying civilian job. That never happened. Today Smith lives with his parents on Baltimore’s east side, making ends meet with a $541 disability check he receives each month from the Department of Veterans Affairs, payment for the lower back, shoulder, hand, knee and ear injuries he sustained in the war.

He said the ringing in his ears, caused by explosions, is continuous: “You just get used to it.” With a little help from Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington state, Smith has become the face of veteran joblessness on Capitol Hill this year, testifying at a hearing, speaking at a news conference and lobbying individual members of Congress. “I am just one man, but my story reflects the struggle of over 200,000 veterans in the current job market,” Smith told a Senate committee in April. The situation is most bleak for young veterans who served in the military after Sept. 11, 2001, those returning from the wars in Iraq and

Afghanistan. In May, they had an unemployment rate of 12.1 percent, compared with 8.4 percent for all veterans 18 and older, according to Congress’ Joint Economic Committee. It’s been an unlikely journey for Smith, who got his GED at age 17. He grew up in a “semi-military family,” with his grandfather, father and oldest brother all enlisting in the Army. It made a big impact on the young boy. “From the time I was very young, that’s all I wanted to do,” Smith said. “I wanted to be an Army man or a policeman. ... And there’s the romanticism of it. I mean, you don’t See FIGHTING, Page 7E

Movement seeks to revolutionize early education

By SARAH GARLAND MCT Wire Services

SANTA MARIA, Calif. — A few years ago, preschool teachers in Santa Maria, a low-income, mostly Hispanic city about 50 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, attended a series of meetings with kindergarten teachers in the district. Most had never met. The teachers had little idea what happened in one another’s classrooms.

The growing momentum behind PreK-3 is less than five years old, but the ideas fueling its agenda can be traced back to the 1960s, when researchers were first examining the diminishing effects of Head Start, the federally funded preschool program for low-income children.

What they discovered changed the course of early education in this small city and is at the heart of a new national reform movement known as PreK-3. Among the revelations:

hearing American classics like “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” or “Humpty Dumpty” at home. So the preschools began incorporating those stories into their classrooms. “Preschool and kindergarten were operating differently,” said Karin Dominguez, a former teacher who initiated the meetings. “It was important for them to

The kindergarten teachers told the preschool teachers that their 5-year-olds, many of them immigrants, struggled with stories covered in the kindergarten reading curriculum. They weren’t See EDUCATION, Page 6E

SOMETIMES A column will engender approval and many times disapproval. Last week’s column reminding people to never count ol’ Rick Perry out of a race -even one for president -- engaged many readers. Texas Gov. Perry continues to be in the news, drawing praise and criticism for promoting a National Day of Prayer as well as garnering attention as a potential candidate in the wake of the Newt Gingrich campaign meltdown and presumptive front-runner Mitt Romney’s problems gaining traction with the conservative Republican base My long-time friend and one truly talented editor, Roy Bode, wrote to me and offered his assessment of Gov. Perry and his qualifications or lack thereof. Bode left the “big time” of newspaper publishing with his last stint as editor of the Dallas (Texas) Times Herald and returned to real journalism in the community newspaper business. He has watched many a politician from far and wide. Here is Bode’s take on the governor of Texas. It’s hard to say whether Gov. Rick Perry’s flirtation with the Republican presidential nomination should be viewed with jubilance, surprise, dismay or plain old fashioned anger as he casually grinds the prized Texas values of straight talk and unwavering dedication to principle under his custom-made boot heel. Jubilance? Democrats must be giddy with visions of matching their president with our governor dancing in their heads. Meanwhile, truly conservative Republicans may also see the possibility that Perry’s all consuming ambition may finally – actually – consume his interminable political career when it is dissected in the glare of a presidential campaign. Surprise? Certainly it is stunning that some conservative political icons like Rush Limbaugh are suggesting that Perry might gather the Republican Party and lead it through the political wilderness to the White House next year. Shooting a coyote didn’t make him John Wayne. Dismay? Anger? Despite his role as Al Gore’s Texas campaign chairman in the 1988 presidential election, Perry is no liberal now. Unfortunately, those who’ve followed his deeds as well as his words know he’s not really a reliable conservative, either. More than anything, he is a staunch and dedicated opportunist who doesn’t think twice about placing his own interest above that of the people. Just this week, he proved it again. No Help for Texas Businesses The governor, who never stops bragging on himself as the patron saint of small business, vetoed Republican-sponsored legislation that would have helped ensure the state sales tax is equally applied to both storefront and online retailers. Although it’s impossible to know Perry’s true motivation, it’s hard to believe that the guy who once raised the possibility of Texas secession and wrote “Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America from Washington,” just wants to forge a better plan that, as he said, “balances the competing interests, respects federalism, and is fair and equitable.” More likely Perry intended to burnish his anti-tax, national image as pro-business while considering his presidential candidacy. Of course, those who know the backstory of this bill understand that this wasn’t about a new tax; it was about sanctioning the state comptroller’s policy of taxing some online retailers the same as brick-andmortar stores.

OUR OPINION: ALCOHOL ABUSE

Stop toasting drinking in area

C

OULD IT BE that Northeastern Pennsylvania’s “culture of corruption” gets fueled, in part, by a culture of consumption? Two former Luzerne County bigwigs who pleaded guilty to separate crimes in the ongoing public corruption scandal say their illegal actions were influenced by problem drinking. The demon rum made me do it, your honor. Sorry, but we can’t see much credence in this defense. It seems like a baldfaced ploy for leniency where none is warranted. That’s not to minimize, however, these men’s personal afflictions or the devastation that alcohol abuse continually causes in our community, damaging individual lives as well as institutions. As with people enrolled in any worthwhile 12-step program, we in this neck of the anthracite region need to face it: We have a problem. We – generally speaking – imbibe beyond healthy limits. We participate in, or tolerate, excessive beer drinking and boozing. We blame it on tradition and make jokes about “a tavern on every corner.” We toss ’em back to celebrate accomplishments and to mourn losses. We drink, drink, drink ’til we’re drunk. And then we suffer the consequences. Sexual crimes. Domestic violence. Vehicle crashes. Fatalities. Family turmoil. Property damage. Divorce. Lost productivity. Sicknesses. Surgeries. Jail sentences. William Sharkey, the county’s former court administrator who in 2009 pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $70,000, last week appeared before a federal judge and received a 10-month prison sentence. The Hazleton resident’s

term behind bars is set to begin in August. During Wednesday’s proceeding, an attorney Sharkey for the 59year-old Sharkey suggested that alcohol previously had clouded his client’s judgment. Sharkey has since undergone treatment for his addiction. Similarly, former Luzerne County judge Michael T. Toole voluntarily entered a treatment program for an alcohol problem after his 2009 corruption-related arrest. Prior to Toole’s sentencing in April, his attorney described how the then-jurist had sometimes downed 30 beers in a night. People can make light of the situation, joking that rather than put new time clocks by each courthouse entrance, officials should install Breathalyzers. Or we can, as we should, take this issue seriously. Examining, or re-examining, the role alcohol plays in this region should be a part of our community’s corruptionspawned, self-examination. Can we connect more area residents who need treatment with the proper programs? Can the area’s civic groups and nonprofit organizations take the lead by eliminating, or reducing the amount of, alcoholic beverages available at certain fundraisers and other functions? Can we empower family members, friends and peers to speak out when they know someone is abusing alcohol? Can we admit it’s time to get some help? Find area services for people coping with alcohol and/or drug dependencies by calling Help Line: 1-888-829-1341.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “It was just easier to make the payment. It was not the right thing to do. It was the easiest thing to do.” Dominic Provino The partner in Highland Associates, a Clarks Summit architectural firm, testified in federal court last week that his firm was extorted in 2005 to the tune of $90,000 by former Lackawanna County commissioner Robert Cordaro and sitting Commissioner A.J. Munchak. Testimony is set to resume Monday in the duo’s public corruption trial in Scranton.

OTHER OPINION: IRAQ VIOLENCE

Attacks signal danger ahead

T

HE DEATHS OF five American troops in Baghdad last week are somber reminders that even as the last 46,000 military personnel prepare to leave Iraq, great danger remains. These five were serving as Iraqi military advisers, not actively seeking confrontation. They were killed by three mortar rounds that landed near their living quarters on a base close to the dangerous slum of Sadr City, which is controlled by Muqtada al-Sadr. He’s often described as a firebrand Shiite cleric. Through his Mahdi Army, he reportedly is eager to claim

credit for pushing Americans toward the door. At this point, he is seeking to derail talks about keeping a small American training force in Iraq beyond December. Such an arrangement could help ensure a good exit, making sure the 4,459 U.S. troops who have died to date in Iraq did not die in vain. However, if U.S. and Iraqi officials determine the nation is stable enough to go it alone, then America should by all means complete the withdrawal on schedule. Whatever the decision, this nation cannot allow desperate acts of violence to dictate foreign policy. The Kansas City Star

Government institutions should stick to what they know TWO UNRELATED news stories on the same day show the contrast between government decisions and private decisions. Under the headline “Foreclosed Homes Sell at Big Discounts,” USA Today reported that banks were selling the homes they foreclosed on, at discounts of 38 percent in Tennessee to 41 percent in Illinois and Ohio. Banks in general try to get rid of the homes they acquire by foreclosure, by selling them quickly for whatever they can get. Why? Because banks are forced by economic realities to realize that they are not real estate companies. No matter how much expertise bank officials might have in financial transactions, that is very different from knowing the best ways to maintain and market empty houses. Meanwhile, there was a story on the Fox News Channel about schools that are using their time to indoctrinate kindergartners and fourth graders with politically correct attitudes about sex. Anyone familiar with the low standards and mushy notions in the schools and departments of education that turn out our public school teachers might think that these teachers would have all they can do to make American children competent in reading, writing and math. Anyone familiar with how our children stack up with children from other countries in basic education would be painfully aware

COMMENTARY THOMAS SOWELL that American children lag behind children in countries that spend far less per pupil than we do. Why are teachers so bold when banks are so cautious? The banks pay a price for being wrong. Teachers don’t. If banks try to act like they are real estate companies and hold on to a huge inventory of foreclosed homes, they are likely to lose money big time, as those homes deteriorate and cannot compete with homes marketed by real estate companies with far more experience and expertise in this field. But if teachers fail to educate children, they don’t lose one dime, no matter how much those children and the country lose by their failure. If the schools waste precious time indoctrinating children, instead of educating them, that’s the children’s problem and the country’s problem, but not the teachers’ problem. Sex indoctrination is just one of innumerable “exciting” and “innovative” self-indulgences of the schools. There is no bottom line test of what these boondoggles cost the children or the country. Incidentally, conservatives who think that schools should be teaching “abstinence” miss the point completely. The schools have no expertise to be teaching sex at all. We should be happy if they ever develop the

competence to teach math and English, so that our children can hold their own in international tests. Schools are just one government institution that take on tasks for which they have no expertise or even competence. Congress is the most egregious example. In the course of any given year, Congress votes on taxes, medical care, military spending, foreign aid, agriculture, labor, international trade, airlines, housing, insurance, courts, natural resources and much more. There are professionals who have spent their entire adult lives specializing in only one of these fields. The idea that Congress can be competent in all these areas simultaneously is staggering. Yet, far from pulling back – as banks or other private enterprises must, if they don’t want to be ruined financially by operating beyond the range of their competence – Congress is constantly expanding further into more fields. Having spent years ruining the housing markets with their interference, leading to a housing meltdown that has taken the whole economy down with it, politicians have now moved on into micro-managing automobile companies and medical care. They are not going to stop unless they get stopped. And that is not going to happen until the voters recognize the fact that political rhetoric is no substitute for competence.

Santorum is sure to stir things up in presidential race FORMER Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum’s official entry into the presidential race Monday largely was greeted with a yawn by the political community. Santorum, is, after all, coming off of an 18-point drubbing in his 2006 re-election race and has struggled in the early days of the 2012 campaign to emerge as the preferred candidate for social conservatives. Those who dismiss Santorum as a factor in the race are making a mistake, however. Every presidential race is like a feature-length film that includes the major actors and the bit players. And so, Santorum has a role to play. That role? Agitator. Throughout his political career, Santorum has been a somewhat unique figure on the national stage in that he isn’t afraid to throw a political punch. It’s a trait that helped him rise in Republican leadership circles – he finished his political career as Senate Republican Conference Chairman, the fourth ranking GOP senator – and what turned him into a national icon of the social conservative movement in the 1990s and 2000s. (That same junkyard dog trait also sowed the seeds of his 2006 defeat at the hands of Sen. Bob Casey as Santorum found himself well to the ideological right of his Pennsylva-

COMMENTARY CHRIS CILLIZZA nia constituents.) Santorum already has shown his feisty side in the run-up to this campaign, regularly going after his better known rivals. To wit: On Mitt Romney: “The issues, unfortunately, don’t line up particularly well for Governor Romney this time, particularly with health care being front and center on the stage.” On Mike Huckabee: “On national security, cultural, economic, fiscal, etc., and Gov. Huckabee doesn’t have a record on national security so what I’m saying is for someone who’s thinking about running for president I’m a much more known quantity and someone who is consistent.” On Mitch Daniels: “I think it shows there are some people who are willing to stand up and fight for the family and others who would rather, to use the comment of one potential candidate, call a truce on these things. A truce in this case means ceding ground to the other side.” Now that he is in the race, Santorum isn’t likely to let up on his critique of his rivals; his campaign slogan, unveiled Monday morning in Somerset, is “the courage to fight for

America” – an indication of where he’s headed message-wise. Santorum’s pugilistic rhetorical approach is designed to allow him to “punch up” – meaning that by taking shots at his better-known rivals he can inject himself into debates and conversations where he might not otherwise be. It’s a sound strategy for someone who is clearly seen as a second-tier figure in the race. It also poses potential danger for the people at whom Santorum is swinging. The two most likely recipients of Santorum’s attacks will be Romney, the race’s frontrunner, whom the former Pennsylvania senator already has hammered over the Massachusetts health care law, and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, who not only served in the Obama administration as ambassador to China, but also has staked out relatively moderate ground on the gay marriage issue. The first showdown will likely come this week in New Hampshire as the announced candidates – so, no Huntsman – gather for a presidential debate. Expect Santorum to come out aggressively when given the chance. How Romney reacts – not just Monday but throughout the campaign – will be telling. Chris Cillizza writes “The Fix,” a politics blog for the Washington Post.

GOP should challenge Obama’s stewardship THE Republicans swept November’s midterm election by making it highly ideological, a referendum on two years of hyper-liberalism – of arrogant, overreaching, intrusive government drowning in debt and running deficits of $1.5 trillion annually. It’s not complicated. To govern left in a center-right country where four out of five citizens are non-liberal is a prescription for electoral defeat. Which suggested an obvious Republican strategy for 2012: Recapitulate 2010. Keep it ideological. Choose a presidential nominee who can best make the case. But in the last few weeks, the landscape has changed. For two reasons: NY-26 and the May economic numbers. Last month, Democrats turned the race for the 26th Congressional District of New York into a referendum on Medicare, and more specifically on the Paul Ryan plan for reforming it. The Republicans lost the seat – after having held it for more than four decades. Problem was, their candidate was weak, defensive, unschooled and unskilled in dealing with the issue. Republicans have a year to cure that. If they can train their candidates to be just half as fluent as Ryan in defending their Medicare plan, they would be able to neutralize the issue. But that in and of itself is a tactical victory for Democrats. Republicans are on the defensive. Democratic cynicism has worked. By deciding to do nothing about debt and entitlements, and instead to simply accuse Republicans of tossing granny off a cliff, they have given themselves an issue. And more than just an issue. It gives President Obama the perfect opportunity to reposition himself to the center. After his midterm shellacking, he began the (ostensible) move: appointing moderates such as William Daley to high White House positions; making probusiness, anti-regulatory noises; even offering last month a token relaxation of his hard line against oil drilling. Ostentatious but not very convincing. Now, however, the Obama pitch is stronger: Leftist? On the contrary, I bestride the center like a colossus, protecting Medicare from Republican right-wing social engineering. It’s not that the ideological case against Obama cannot be made. “Obamacare” with its individual mandate remains

COMMENTARY CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER unpopular. The near-trilliondollar stimulus remains an albatross. Medicare has nonetheless partially blunted that line of ideological attack. Yet, just as the Democrats were rejoicing in the fruits of their cynicism, in came the latest economic numbers. They were awful. Housing price declines were the worst since the 1930s. Unemployment rising again. Underemployment disastrously high. And as for chronic unemployment, the average time for finding a new job is now 40 weeks, the highest ever recorded. These numbers gravely undermine Obama’s story line that we’re in a recovery, just a bit slow and bumpy. Suddenly, the election theme has changed. The Republican line in 2010 was: He’s a leftist. Now it is: He’s a failure. The issue is shifting from ideology to stewardship. As in 1992, it’s the economy, with everything else a distant second. The economic numbers explain why Obama’s job approval has fallen, why the bin Laden bump disappeared so quickly, and why Mitt Romney is running even with the president. Romney is the candidate least able to carry the ideological attack against Obama – exhibit A of Obama’s hyperliberalism is “Obamacare,” and Romney cannot rid himself of the similar plan he gave Massachusetts. But when it comes to being solid on economics, competent in business and highly experienced in governance, Romney is the prohibitive front-runner. Nonetheless, despite the changed conditions, I would still prefer to see the Republican challenger make 2012 a decisive choice between two distinct visions of government. We are in the midst of a once-in-ageneration debate about the nature of the welfare state (entitlement versus safety net) and, indeed, of the social contract between citizen and state (e.g., whether Congress can mandate – compel – you to purchase whatever it wills). Let’s finish that debate. Start with Obama’s abysmal stewardship, root it in his out-oftouch social-democratic ideology, and win. That would create the strongest mandate for conservative governance since the Reagan era. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@charleskrauthammer.com.

Stabilize Afghanistan to help prop up Pakistan PRESIDENT Obama has pledged to start withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan next month, with a goal of pulling all combat troops out by the end of 2014. He hasn’t yet decided how many troops to pull this year. But since the killing of Osama bin Laden, domestic pressures have grown for him to front-load the drawdown. If the point was to squash al-Qaida, people ask, why are we keeping thousands of troops in Afghanistan? After all, bin Laden was found in Pakistan. So was top al-Qaida military leader Ilyas Kashmiri, reportedly killed by a drone strike earlier this month. Having just returned from two weeks in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where I talked to U.S., Afghan and Pakistani leaders, I’ve come to a different conclusion: The drawdown should proceed slowly, at least for this year. The situation in AfPak is far more perilous than is widely understood, but for reasons Obama has failed to explain clearly. The risk is not just that Afghanistan could implode, but that nuclear-armed Pakistan could do likewise. As we saw recently – when

option so far. Yet despite these caveats, and more, I believe it is essential to limit the troop drawdown this year. Here’s why. Security progress so far is real but not consolidated. Afghan forces could collapse if left on their own too soon. But paired with U.S. troops longer they might gain the confidence to fight on their own. But the biggest and most urgent reason to keep the drawdown limited, at least for this year, lies in Pakistan. Its weak civilian government is in disarray, and its military is infiltrated by Islamists. The Pakistani army is having deep trouble fighting its own jihadis. It insists it didn’t know of bin Laden’s presence, which, if true, indicates deep failures in its intelligence agencies. Neither Obama nor Petraeus will say this out loud, but a prime reason we must stabilize Afghanistan is to prevent militants from grabbing Pakistan. That’s reason enough to give the current strategy more time. Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

EMRs: Finding a balance between billing efficiency and patient care ONE OF the big changes recently in the practice of medicine is Medicare’s push for physician’s practices and hospitals to convert their documents from paper charts to an electronic medical record (EMR). Starting in 2011, medical providers are given extra reimbursement by Medicare for adopting and using an EMR. The mantra from advocates is that EMRS allow easy transfer of a patient’s medical information from caregiver to caregiver, avoid duplication of testing, decrease costs and reduce medical errors. Much of this is probably true. As a physician, however, I worry that EMRs as implemented can actually downgrade the quality of information passed between health care teams and at least, in some ways, increase the cost of care. Now, I’m a computer-oriented guy. It irks me to see data collection in my office occur through the filing of printed, white cellulose sheets in green cardboard folders – a format with no digital access. I definitely want an EMR. First problem is that they are rather expensive. The company that supplies my current billing software has offered to install one: for $35,000. For my solo private practice, that’s a lot of money. Practices spend it, however, because of a benefit to them little talked about

COMMENTARY

As EMRs proliferate, and increased Medicare scrutiny looms, medical documentation is evolving from its original goal of recording what actually was going on with a patient, and what the provider was actually thinking, to sterile boilerplate documents designed to justify the highest billing codes. In years past, a well-written history and physical, or progress note, would unfold like a story, giving a vivid description of the patient’s symptoms and physical exam at the point of the encounter, as well as the synthesis of the data and the plan of care. In an EMR an “H and P” is often reduced to random collections of data combined digitally with sterile prose that describes weakly, if at all, the clinical situation. This problem occurs because most physicians don’t type fast enough to be efficient using an EMR. Because of this, they are prompted to use what EMR companies refer as “smart phrases,” pre-composed text designed for relevance in a broad range of circumstances. Dictation into the record is sometimes an option, but transcription is expensive. So most electronic medical records tend to be full of data, but short on nuance. I currently dictate most of the notes in my office and hope that they convey my exact thoughts to my colleagues. I do worry that an EMR might degrade this. Much of my inpatient work is at

sub-acute facilities and involves accepting transfers from acute care hospitals. Because of this, I often have to review complex hospital records. Given the current technology, old-fashioned written notes, which tend to be brief but focused on the important details of care, are far easier to digest than their all-inclusive, and often repetitive, digital counterparts. So how do we improve EMRs? First, I think we need to find a way to separate the documentation for billing’s sake, from that needed for patient care. These are supposed to be medical records for clinical use, not part of a contest between medical billers and insurance companies. We need to provide a way for practitioners to document their exact thoughts in the electronic record in a cost-efficient way. This might happen as younger caregivers, who tend to type, come into the work force. I hope that improvement in speech-to-text software will be a solution for us more “established” physicians. As I am hopefully in the middle of my career, I am extremely excited about the potential for this technology. I look forward to the efficiency and improvements in quality it might bring. I just don’t want it to highjack my documentation for its own purposes. Dr. Henry F. Smith Jr., a Fairview Township resident, practices pulmonary medicine in the Wilkes-Barre area.

Clean house in W-B election

ver the next few months as we approach the November election, residents of Wilkes-Barre might note that city services suddenly have been resurrected or enhanced; but for those of us who keep an eye and ear on City Hall, many of these actions are considered ploys. I often smirk at just how creative some officials are in order to retain their seats. I urge Wilkes-Barre residents to stay focused on the

real issues. The most important one is the excessive salaries and benefits that we are paying our elected City Hall officials. There also is concern about the status of the general fund, the city budget, loans, gas usage at the city garage, the duties of the city controller and the ensuing retirements and benefits we will continue to finance for decades. Most of the actions that the mayor and council take between now and November are orchestrated to purposely lead you away from the reality that we are being ripped off. Do

not be led astray by neighborhood needs that are considered, in my estimation, general duties. We must focus on dramatically scaling back all elected city officials’ salaries and benefits, as well as the general fund, and entice industry back to our city. Opening a slew of bars shouldn’t, by any means, be considered economic growth, and in fact only causes more expense in some cases. The only way to logically address – once and for all – some, if not all, of our concerns is by electing a new

Barletta making right decisions

M

r. Stephen Herzenberg’s recent commentary defending the status quo treatment of Medicare by Washington Democrats (“Mr. Barletta went to D.C. and forgot the middle class,” May

23) was completely off the mark. The newly released Medicare trustee report states without question that Medicare is slated to run out of money by 2024. If we maintain the status quo as Mr. Herzenberg argues, Medicare will have no money to pay benefits in 13 years. His proposed fix? Raise taxes. Are there no liberals creative enough to propose a solution to a problem in government that doesn’t include a tax increase? Tax increases aren’t the answer, and neither is kicking

the can down the road as the last crop of congressmen did. We elected a new group of representatives to fix these problems – without raising taxes. Lou Barletta was sent to Washington with a keen awareness that it was time for Congress to live within its means and stop dipping into the wallets of hardworking Americans. That is exactly what he is doing, and that is one of the many reasons why I am proud to have him as my congressman. Alan Lispi Old Forge

Writer rebuffs critique of Obama

A

fter reading Stephen Alinikoff’s commentary (“Obama misses yet another chance to lead this country,” May 25), I felt that it deserved a response. Mr. Alinikoff, you are full of it. I’m making an assumption, but from the tenor and the words of your column, the parts about your generation of teenagers and college students and the civil rights battle here in America, how “we adopted the cause of civil rights,” it’s almost as if you were one of the many “Freedom Riders” of

that era, some of whom were murdered for their cause. If you were one of those people who actively participated – in some way large or small – for justice, I respect you but think you have lost your way. Because, if you really mean your own words, then you must realize that the Palestinian people are also yearning for freedom, have been for 60 years and are still waiting. If you did not participate, but are only using words to try and influence next year’s election, I say you are in the same category as the Republican operative who has been busy editing audio and video to make liberals appear to be saying and doing things that they didn’t say, or do. You wrote that Obama “betrayed” our ally Israel. How, exactly? By stating publicly what has been the American government’s unspoken policy for many years and through many administrations: that Israel should return to the borders before the Six Day War? That occupation is wrong? We are having enough trouble and heartache occupying Afghanistan, which itself is wrong. Why should we support Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands? Yes, some of them send rockets into Israel. And, yes, Israel bulldozes houses in the Gaza Strip in reprisal, mostly belonging to people innocent of terrorism. Israel faces many challenges. I want to see it survive and thrive, along with its Arab neighbors. But how is that possible with Israel constantly expanding its borders by way of new settlements into land

that was owned by others? Can you answer that question, please? Why is it probable to you that Israel can build more and more settlements for more and more imported people on others’ land and not suffer more hate, more terrorist attacks and maybe someday that existential threat about which Israel is so fond of screaming? I did not address most of the questions you posed in the commentary because it seemed that they were not really questions but rather ideas to be planted into the minds of 2012’s voters. You really didn’t say much except “Israel good,” “Obama bad.” Liberals, including this one, are not too happy with Obama, either. We should be totally out of Afghanistan and Iraq by now; we should have the card check law for unions; we should have greater credit card protection than what was passed; we should have Wall Street and the banking system totally under control. These are things that would benefit the average American, and they haven’t happened. Obama has been an imperfect president. But we have been an imperfect people, supporting an imperfect Congress. So I will in 2012 be voting for an imperfect president because, to tell you the truth, he will be better than anyone you would offer. And, Mr. Alinikoff, peace will not come to the Mideast until both Arab and Israel truly want it. I think the Arabs need less hate, and Israel needs less arrogance. The real question is, like the chicken and the egg, which will come first. Because they feed each other. I would think, though I might be wrong, that the party with the most power should be the one to make the first honest move, and that party is Israel – a country with advanced arms, supplied mainly by an Obama-led America, and its own nuclear weapons. I think you should look into

the mirror, admit that you, and Israel, have been wrong these many years, and magically become a liberal. But just the thought probably makes you shudder. Oh well. I tried. Peace.

Despite accident, Legal immigration keep church open seen as detriment

T

he efforts by America’s highly ideological, multiculturalist ruling class to transform the population and overcome the voting strength and cultural dominance of America’s white middle class is succeeding. Thanks to mass legal chain immigration and poorly protected borders, Hispanics accounted for more than half of the nation’s population growth over the last 10 years, according to 2010 census data. Overall, racial and ethnic minorities made up an unprecedented 90 percent of the total U.S. population growth since 2000. Besides legal and illegal immigration, higher birth rates among those groups were a significant contributing factor. The transformation of the United States from a mostly white European-driven nation to a mostly non-white Hispanic, Caribbean, Asian and African nation is well under way, confirmed by the analysis of demographers. This all started in 1965, when the McCarranWalter Immigration Act was scuttled and replaced with the Hart-Celler Act, which is a law of lies. But I’m the only one to point out these injustices. Politicians, including Congressman Lou Barletta, talk only about illegal immigration. If people don’t soon speak up about legal immigration, whites will no longer be a viable race. It’s really shameful to be pushed around and not respond to elites and other groups.

T

he Diocese of Scranton has touched off a firestorm with the closing of various churches over the years within the Wilkes-Barre area. That firestorm has now become personal. As Sacred Heart Slovak Church officials announced that Lenten Masses would be held daily, those steadfast in the mission to keep the church open vowed to support this seemingly final endeavor to preserve their place of solace. However, those hopefuls anticipated that their support would spark a renewed effort to keep the church open. Scaffolding, barriers and tape cautioned those entering and exiting the facility, as if an ever-present reminder to those optimistic patrons that the end is inevitable for Sacred Heart. My mother was one of those churchgoers for the Lenten Masses. Devoted to the preservation of her place of worship and vowing her support for the daily Masses, she faced an unfortunate circumstance. On her birthday in March, she was injured after falling on a pool of ice that apparently formed on the steps from the water dripping from the scaffolding. She was hospitalized for several days, and underwent hip replacement surgery. She has endured extensive rehabilitation that will last for months, if not years. My mother’s life has been altered forever. But, more sadly, the church officials in the Diocese of Scranton apparently will use this event as an example of

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It used to be the idea that if everybody completed preschool, they were going to be fine. But that may not cut it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a 30-cylinder engine. All the parts have to work.â&#x20AC;?

learn from each other.â&#x20AC;? The PreK-3 movement, which refers to the years spanning prekindergarten to third grade, wants to revolutionize early education through an ambitious list of connected initiatives, including universal access to free public preschool, mandatory full-day kindergarten and a curriculum that is seamlessly connected from preschool to third grade. Increasing parental involvement is also a major focus. But some educators and experts have questioned how feasible and replicable the agenda is, especially as the financial crisis has forced states to cut preschool and full-day kindergarten. And critics and advocates alike have acknowledged that evidence supporting the collective reforms is scarce. The few schools and districts that have implemented parts or all of the PreK-3 agenda have shown mixed results so far. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of reasons why it should work, and why it would work,â&#x20AC;? said Robert Pianta, the dean of the Curry School of Education at the University

of Virginia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to pin the model down to evaluate it in a way to say that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven effective in improving achievement.â&#x20AC;? Nevertheless, the PreK-3 movement has gathered increasing attention and private money over the past five years. Proponents say their ideas could help reduce gaps in achievement between disadvantaged and advantaged children before they start, and save money on interventions for older students. A handful of foundations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the Foundation for Child Development, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the New Schools Foundation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; together are spending millions to support the movement. (Disclosure: the Foundation for Child Development and the Gates Foundation are among The Hechinger Reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many former and current funders.) At the same time, an increasing number of schools, districts and even whole states, including

EDUCATION

Paul Cordero a school superintendent

Nevada, Wyoming and Washington, are in the process of implementing the reforms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anybody in education now that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand if you can get it right, preschool to kindergarten through third grade, that kid is going to succeed,â&#x20AC;? Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire said in a radio interview last year. The growing momentum behind PreK-3 is less than five years old, but the ideas fueling its agenda can be traced back to the 1960s, when researchers were first examining the diminishing effects of Head Start, the federally funded preschool program for low-income children. Since then, projects to ease the transition from early education to elementary school have been tried, with mixed results. There have been successes, however. One recent example is the South Shore K-8 School in Seattle. The school was opened in 2001 with the help of a private foundation as a model for

PreK-3 reforms. It has implemented a research-tested curriculum that extends from preschool through elementary school, as well as small classes and intensive teacher training. A 2010 report by ECONorthwest, a research company, found that students at the school scored higher than expected on state reading and math tests. The school didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close the achievement gap for its African-American students, but they did perform better than their peers at other Seattle schools. Still, the broad nature of the PreK-3 reforms has led to concerns that it is too vague. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there are common perimeters,â&#x20AC;? Pianta said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of clarity.â&#x20AC;? Another critique of the PreK-3 model, by Ron Haskins, co-director of the Brookings Center on Children and Families in Washington, â&#x20AC;&#x153;can be summarized in one word: money.â&#x20AC;? Many schools and districts

have relied on foundation funding to implement elements of the PreK-3 reforms, but private money is scarce and usually time-limited. In Santa Maria, lack of money is one of the problems administrators and teachers have encountered. Even as they work to improve connections between preschool and the elementary grades, many children still do not have access to early education at all. So far, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts have corresponded with only small test-score gains. But down the road, Santa Mariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas are being carried on, and expanded. In the California seaside town of Carpinteria, educators borrowing from Santa Maria are trying to create an educational path that extends from â&#x20AC;&#x153;cradle to collegeâ&#x20AC;? for every child in the district. The local school district is working to improve the quality of teaching in its elementary schools. Using private grants, the town has created a community center that includes pre-

school classes, English classes for adults, and even classrooms where stay-at-home moms can bring their toddlers for a preschool-like environment. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no evidence yet that the project leads to better results, but town officials, just like their counterparts in the national PreK-3 movement, are hopeful that in the next few years, more definitive research will show their approach is working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It used to be the idea that if everybody completed preschool, they were going to be fine. But that may not cut it,â&#x20AC;? said Paul Cordero, the Carpinteria superintendent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a 30-cylinder engine. All the parts have to work.â&#x20AC;? Others remain skeptical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good evidence that if we could somehow shape the preschools to be more consistent with the public schools, or vice versa, that it would have a major impact,â&#x20AC;? Haskins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a good idea. Education ought to be organized.â&#x20AC;?

know what to expect.” He wound up in the Navy instead, serving deployments of eight months and seven months. Looking back, he said, he was “young and dumb” when he enlisted, with dreams of coming home a war hero. He said he thought it would be a war where it would be easy to spot the enemy. But he learned that things were much more complicated. “That was youthful ignorance,” Smith said. “These guys, I mean, they hid among the civilians.” His 5 1/2-year stint included a four-month course to become a medic, which eventually led to his job as corpsman. Smith recalled treating many Iraqi civilians who got caught in the crossfire. And he witnessed his share of death. “People die, sure,” he said. “That’s just the reality of the thing.” While Smith talks openly about most subjects, he won’t say whether he actually shot anyone in combat. “There was a war going on and I had guns,” he said. “I used them.” When he left the military at age 23, Smith said it was a tough and lonely readjustment. He said that he had a record of “working under fire” and that he thought he had acquired a broad range of technical and leadership skills that would help him quickly land a job. “I thought that had to count for something,” he said. “This did not prove to be the case.” When he got home, Smith said, he had $12,000 in savings, so he decided to take some time off. A few months later, he was broke. Then, when he needed work the most, the economy was battered by recession, and jobs were scarce. He said he applied for hundreds of jobs. “There was a point where I was applying for five different jobs every day and was just not getting anything back,” he said. “It didn’t matter, whether it was doorman

at a nightclub or short-order cook, anything that was open, I was going to take.” After going to a two-week bartending class, he landed a parttime bartending job at a local VFW club, but that lasted only six weeks, until the club decided it had too many bartenders. Then Smith worked as a mail sorter for two months after landing the job through a temporary employment agency. He’s worked as a day laborer, too. When his money was completely gone, he spent four nights and five days at a local hospital, participating in a study for a new drug for traumatic brain injuries. “My mom felt it was more risky than I did,” he said. “I thought it was safe enough to proceed. And I thought the money was worth it.” Smith plans to use the GI bill to go to community college this fall. He wants to get a degree in political science and sees himself working in Washington at some point. He wants to get his own house. In the meantime, Smith has been spending much of his time on Capitol Hill, promoting causes as a volunteer spokesman for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). In late March, he and 27 other veterans participated in IAVA’s “Storm the Hill” lobbying campaign. They went to117 offices on Capitol Hill and met with 57 members of Congress, asking them to commission a study on

military vocational skills and certifications. Smith and other veterans complain that the skills they learn in the military aren’t enough to get them civilian certifications in their fields when they return home. Most recently, Smith has been lobbying Congress to pass a bill that would — for the first time — require U.S. personnel to enroll in a federal job-training program before they’re allowed to leave the military. The legislation is sponsored by Murray, the chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, who invited Smith to testify at a hearing and to speak at a news conference where she introduced the legislation. “As the civilian unemployment rate declines, joblessness among

new veterans continues to skyrocket — this is unacceptable,” Smith said. “As a country, we must act now to reverse this trend.” Murray said that Smith puts a human face on the issue of veteran joblessness, providing a firsthand account “of what it is like to come home from two tours in Iraq, serving our nation, only to fight every day to find a job.” “You should know Eric’s story is so not alone,” she said. “I have heard this over and over and over again. We invest an incredible amount of money in training our servicemen and women in specific skills, in his case as a medic. And they come home and that doesn’t count. That’s just crazy for our country to continue to do that.”

The governor panicked last February when Seattle-based Amazon.com said it would close a Texas warehouse, costing about 120 jobs – more if an expansion it huffed about ever happened because the state wanted it to pay sales taxes. Stampeding over Republican State Comptroller Susan Combs in an obsequious play to mollify the giant mail order house, he assured its execs that the chief Texas tax collector just didn’t know what she was doing when she billed them $269 million. We believe she did. But now lawyers are running their meters to determine who is right, and Perry has derailed overwhelming Legislative approval of a bill that would have given Texas merchants a needed break.

Photographer Chip Forelli doesn’t own a television. And he and his wife, Gloria, moved their family from Manhattan to Pennsylvania’s Upper Delaware Valley a few years ago to give their three sons a more rustic place to grow up. “Boys need rocks and bugs,” Forelli explained. He has such back-to-nature values, it’s not surprising to learn Forelli prefers manual cameras to digital. He’s a fan of black-and-white film, too. But it’s not that he’s gone retro in every aspect of his life. The photographer, whose “Terra Emota” exhibit is on display at the Camerawork Gallery in See FILM, Page 6F

A shed with an air conditioner is usually a strange thing to see in someone’s yard, but for Bill Stritzinger, 49, of Dallas it’s a second home. The shed also has heat so Stritzinger can use it year-round as a fully functioning dark room. In an age of most everything digital, the photographer has decided to go the traditional route and develops all his own film. Photography is a hobby for Stritzinger, and the first-ever showing of his work is at Mainstreet Galleries in Kingston until June 30.

Edited by Rich Norris and Joyce Nichols Lewis

CRYPTOGRAMS

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The end does not justify the means now — in fact, the “means” are all that matters. Furthermore, your mood and attitude as you are carrying out your methods will have the greatest impact of all. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You turn the world into your playground. You might not wind up in the most entertaining circumstances today, but you’re sure to have fun with whatever circumstances you encounter. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Creative partnerships are as particular as any kind of love match. If you can’t find the fun in it and continually feel resistant to the other person’s ideas, it’s not a good match, but it’s nothing personal. CANCER (June 22-July 22). What would it take for you to become more confident? Whatever it is, do it. Your confidence is far below what it should be right now, considering all you’ve accomplished in life to get where you are. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of having a goal of making the most money or befriending the most people, here’s a goal that will change your life: Have the most fun. A playful spirit will attract all the best to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have the power to change people’s moods. You know this because you’ve worked magic on yourself, and you’re one tough customer. So talk others into an excited state, just like you do for yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is human nature to remember what has been left incomplete. Your mind keeps going back to a certain place, trying to get closure on the scene. Tie up as many loose ends as possible so you can finally move on. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are in a curious mood. You’ll keep asking questions all day, and at night your dreams will continue the theme. Note that most of these questions are best asked internally. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s a wild glint in your eye, which suggests you’re cooking up some daring ideas. Well, someone has to snap these people out of their boredom trance, and it may as well be you! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be mentally burning the candle at both ends to meet today’s intellectual challenges. The games and exercises you enjoy have helped to give you the stamina to stay spry to the end. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You might know what your mistakes were in the past, though this knowing alone is not enough to create change in the future. You must be able to create the mental state that will allow you to make a new choice. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The road to good conversation, and possibly to making a sale, will not be an easy street. This is a treacherous path, filled with potholes and slippery slopes that must be avoided. Take your time.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE

Family members run for cover from talk marathons Dear Abby: No one in my family will tell my grandmother the reason they don’t call her is she talks too much. None of us is retired like she is, and our evenings are chaotic enough without a two-hour conversation with her. Relatives ask me to relay messages on their behalf so they won’t have to call her. She’s always crying and telling me I’m the only one who is “good to her.” I’d feel guilty if I had to tell Grandma the truth — but I, as well as the rest of the family, have had enough of her long, guilt-inducing talks and trips down memory lane from 1940. How can I get the point across without devastating her sensitive nature? — Captive Audience in Florida

LAST WEEK’S PUZZLE ANSWERS

Dear Captive Audience: The next time your grandmother tells you you’re the only one who is good to her, you need to tell her she’d have better luck with the other relatives if she limited the length of her phone calls to them. Encourage her to find other interests so she isn’t as lonely and dependent as she appears to be. To do so isn’t cruel; you’ll be doing her a favor because what’s driving people away is her neediness.

Stritzinger favors Ricketts Glen, saying there are hidden beauties there, as proven in his favorite photo, “Swirling Rock.” The photo focuses on a single, large piece of rock with shadows that seem to fall in all the right places, making it look as though it’s caught in a swirling pattern with its surroundings. “Many people tell me they think the picture was taken somewhere in the Southwest,” Stritzinger said, “but I tell them no, this beautiful creation is right here in our backyard.” He prefers the traditional method of film development because of the incandescence it brings to a black-and-white photo. “If you get it just right, the pho-

‘Titanic’ to be re-released in 3-D next year NEW YORK — “Titanic” is coming back to theaters in 3-D. Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox have announced that James Cameron’s Oscarwinning film will be re-released April 6 next year. It will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail on April 10. Cameron says the film was “painstakingly” converted to 3-D and promises “an epic experience.” “Titanic” was released in 1997 and won 11 Academy Awards

“What attracts me to shoot in almost all instances is the quality of light, and there’s something about film and working with it and the way it records that I just like.”

FADE Continued from Page 1F

moving sharply into focus: “If I extrapolate the trend for film sales and retirements of film cameras, it looks like film will be mostly gone in the U.S. by the end of the decade.” Just who are the die-hards, holdouts and hangers-on? Among those who still rely on film — at least part of the time — are advanced amateurs and a smattering of professionals who specialize in nature, travel, scientific, documentary, museum, fine art and forensic photography, market surveys show. Regular point-and-shoot adherents who haven’t made the switch tend be poorer or older — 55 and up. But there’s also a swelling band of new devotees who grew up in the digital age and may have gotten hooked from spending a magical hour in the darkroom during a high school or college class. Others are simply drawn to its strengths over digital and are even venturing into retro-photo careers. “In everything from wedding to portrait to commercial photography, young professionals are finding digital so prevalent that

they’re looking for a sense of differentiation,” says Kayce Baker, a marketing director at Fujifilm North America. “That artistic look is something their high-end clients want to see.” Kodak remains the world’s biggest film manufacturer, with Japan’s Fuji right on its tail. But the consumer and professional films they make have dwindled to a precious few dozen film stocks in a handful of formats, becoming one more factor in the mammoth drop-off in film processing. Scott’s Photo in Rochester finally stopped daily processing of color print film this year because fewer than one in 20 customers were dropping off film. A decade ago, “we could process 300 rolls on a good day, and now we see maybe 8 or 10 rolls on the few days we actually process,” owner Scott Sims says. For the hustling masses, there’s no turning back the clock. “There’s so many digital images taken every day, especially with mobile media, that never will hit a piece of paper,” says Therese Mulligan, administrative chair of the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technolo-

gy. Even at major photography schools, film is an elective specialty. “Our entire first two years’ curriculum is digital in orientation,” Mulligan says. “Those that follow a fine-art option are the first to gravitate toward film. Other genres we teach — photojournalism or advertising or biomedical — have a stronger digital emphasis because of the industry itself.” In a rich irony, film’s newest fans — not unlike music aficionados who swear by vinyl records — are being drawn together via the rise of the Internet. “The technology that enabled the demise of film is actually helping to keep it relevant with specific types of users,” says IDC analyst Chris Chute. But with the film market shrinking by more than 20 percent annually, most other signs point downhill. Analysts foresee Kodak offloading its still-profitable film division sometime in the next half-dozen years as it battles to complete a long and painful digital transformation. Kodak will churn out a variety of films as long as there’s sufficient demand for each of them,

says Scott DiSabato, its marketing manager for professional film. It has even launched four new types since 2007. While digital has largely closed the image-quality gap, DiSabato says a top-line film camera using large-format film “is still unsurpassed” in recording high-resolution images. “The beauty with film is a lot of wonderful properties are inherent and don’t require work afterward,” whereas digital can involve heavy computer manipulation to get the same effect, DiSabato says. “In the extreme, they call it ‘stomped on,’ ” he said. “But a lot of photographers want to be photographers, not computer technicians. And some prized film capabilities — grain, color hues, skintone reproduction — can’t quite be duplicated no matter how much stomping goes on.” Gary Thompson, who’s been exhibiting his best photos for 32 years, captured his Yosemite picture on medium-format slide film — which is 4 1/2 times bigger than 35 mm film — during one of many weeks-long photo jaunts with his wife. In the digitally scanned, 24-

by-30-inch print, the shadow from a dipping sun has climbed halfway up El Capitan. The wooded, black-and-white foreground with its lacy snow patterns stands in stark contrast to the golden glow on the granite cliff face under a blue sky. “I don’t know if I could have gotten this print that large with that kind of detail” using a digital camera without “shooting several images and blending them together in Photoshop,” he says. “What attracts me to shoot in almost all instances is the quality of light, and there’s something about film and working with it and the way it records that I just like.” Thompson feels acutely that he’s reaching the end of an era. “As people’s film cameras break down, rather than purchasing another one, they move to digital,” he says. “Eventually, we’ll probably be doing that. There’s a certain nostalgia involved, particularly when I’m working with one of my big husky cameras. That will be sad. But hey, when it happens, I’ll adjust.”

Of 11 partners and resident artists at the private gallery in Rochester, the western New York city where George Eastman transformed photography from an arcane hobby into a mass commodity with his $1 Brownie in 1900, the Thompsons are the only ones left who haven’t switched to filmless digital cameras. But that time may be near. “I like the color we get in film, the natural light,” says Phyllis Thompson, 70, who married her high-school sweetheart 50 years ago. “But digital cameras are getting much better all the time, and there will come a time when we probably won’t be able to get film anymore. And then we’ll have to change.” At the turn of the 21st century, American shutterbugs were buying close to a billion rolls of film per year. This year, they might buy a mere 20 million, plus 31 million single-use cameras — the beach-resort staple vacationers turn to in a pinch, according to the Photo Marketing Association. Eastman Kodak Co. marketed the world’s first flexible-roll film in 1888. By 1999, more than 800 million rolls were sold in the United States alone. The next year marked the apex for combined U.S. sales of rolls of film (upward of 786 million) and single-use cameras (162 million). Equally startling has been the plunge in film camera sales during the past decade. Domestic purchases have tumbled from 19.7 million cameras in 2000 to 280,000 in 2009 and might dip below100,000 this year, says Yukihiko Matsumoto, the Jackson, Mich.-based association’s chief researcher. For InfoTrends imaging analyst Ed Lee, film’s fade-out is

Describing color in photographs as ’a distraction,’ Chip Forelli prefers black-and-white images. He shot this one through the window of a covered bridge, to give it a natural kind of frame.

Continued from Page 1F

Scranton through June 29, has lots of reasons for preferring the older equipment and supplies. Consider the film, for example. If you have a digital camera with a card that holds hundreds of images, you might be tempted to shoot wildly, with little thought or planning. Knowing you have, say, one roll of film with 36 exposures, you’ll be more selective. “I have students who take 2,500 images a day. If I shot 2,500 in my lifetime, I’d be surprised,” Forelli said. “It’s about taking the images seriously.” Taking images seriously, as he does, means Forelli wants as much control as possible. If a camera does everything for you, “you’re at the mercy of the camera,” said Forelli, who prefers to select the depth of field, aperture size and shutter speed himself. When he shoots at night, for example, he knows it can be difficult to have detail in both the highlights and the shadows of the image. “I can achieve that with film, and it’s not achievable with digital,” he said. “There are ways of exposing film and developing it so you get all that luminescence.” Admirers of his work, will see a luminescent quality again and again, as Forelli shoots such images as rustic barns and win-

dows, rocky coastlines, rushing rivers and footprints in the snow. If some of his images look familiar, it might be because they have been incorporated into Apple Macintosh operating systems as desktop background choices. His work also has been exhibited at the Steinhardt Conservatory Gallery of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Mercedes Benz Gallery of New York, the Art Institute of Atlanta, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies and Hoopers Gallery in London, England. In a review, The New York Times said Forelli’s photos have “a spiritual quality” and “cover an impressive range of ideas and interpretations … revealing uncanny simultaneous experiences with alternating haze and hardedged clarity.” In addition to photographing purely for himself, Forelli has worked on assignment for such advertising and corporate clients as BMW, Land Rover, AT&T and Eastman Kodak. He also has done pro-bono work for Doctors Without Borders.

Chip Forelli spent time in rural New England as a boy and still has a great appreciation for nature. 29 Years Experience

Best books for dads By ALLEN PIERLEONI

A

reminder that Father’s Day is June 19 and we’re here to help. Instead of waiting till the last minute to buy another tie, try a title instead. ••• Nonfiction “Stuff Every Husband Should Know” by Eric San Juan (Quirk, $9.95, 144 pages): Handy, concise advice in three arenas: marriage, home and family. Under “Stuff You Should Learn To Say to Your Wife: “You’re right.” “Better Off Dad” by Will Culp (Mayhaven, $17.95, 187 pages): After moving to his wife’s hometown of Mahomet, Ill., the former advertising executive decided to stay at home and raise their two young daughters. This is a compilation of his humorous parenting columns from the local weekly newspaper. “Fire Season” by Philip Connors (Ecco, $24.99, 256 pages): Each year for a decade, the former Wall Street Journal reporter lived in a lookout tower in a national forest. The fire-watcher reflects on life, nature and the history of the job. “Breaking the Slump” by Jimmy Roberts (Harper, $24.99, 256 pages): Has your golf game ever gone south? You’re in good company: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Johnny Miller, Tom Watson, David Duval, Steve Stricker. “Let There Be Pebble” by Zachary Michael Jack (University of Nebraska Press, $24.95, 352 pages): The failed Division I college golf walk-on spent a year at and around Pebble Beach Golf Links. During his “meditation” on the game and its unique culture, he conducted more than 100 revealing interviews. “Another Lousy Day in Paradise” and “Dances With Trout” by John Gierach

McClatchy Newspapers

(Simon & Schuster, $19.99, 432 pages): Fishing is the subject in this combined volume of two Gierach collections of first-person essays and sketches. “No Shortage of Good Days” by John Gierach (Simon & Schuster, $24, 224 pages): The master of fly-fishing strikes again with his latest adventures in waders. Consider: “Any fish becomes worth catching to the extent that you can’t catch it.” “River Monsters: True Stories of the Ones That Didn’t Get Away” by Jeremy Wade (Da Capo, $26, 304 pages): One of Wade’s fish could eat 100 of Gierach’s trout for breakfast. Wade is the host of “River Monsters” on Animal Planet. Don’t go in the water. “The Council of Dads” by Bruce Feiler (Harper, $13.99, 246 pages): Facing a life-threatening disease, the father of two “reached out to six men from all passages of life” and asked them to guide his daughters’ lives if he became no longer able. “The Boy in the Moon” by Ian Brown (St. Martin’s, $24.99, 304 pages): The author’s son was struck with “an extremely rare genetic mutation” that rendered him mentally and physically disabled. The father’s journey for a cure and understanding is inspirational. “Reading My Father” by Alexandra Styron (Scribner, $25, 304 pages): The youngest daughter of the disturbed Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist recalls growing up in a troubled household. ••• Fiction

This trilogy of excellent thrillers is by Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo, who is hugely popular in Europe. The English translations (by Don Bartlett) are available. In the United States, Nesbo and his Oslo police detective protagonist, Harry Hole, are being compared to Michael Connelly and his creation, Harry Bosch (respectively). The writing is intelligent, the plots flawless, the danger nonstop. From Harper Paperbacks, $14.99 each. “The Devil’s Star” finds Harry tracking a serial killer while on the verge of being fired from his job. In “Nemesis,” Harry is framed for murder as he investigates a string of violent bank robberies. In “The Redbreast,” Harry’s punishment for an error in the line of duty lands him on routine surveillance — which leads to the discovery of an international conspiracy. “Rogue Island” by Bruce DeSilva (Forge, $14.99, 304 pages): After 40 years as a reporter for the Providence Journal, the author knows Rhode Island. In this take, a street-wise journalist heads for big trouble when he investigates a string of arsons. In May, the Mystery Writers of America voted it “best first novel by an American author.” “The Rich and the Dead,” edited by Nelson DeMille (Grand Central, $24.99, 384 pages): Mystery Writers of America chose veteran novelist DeMille (14 titles) to choose 20 stories by top authors. The theme: the very wealthy, whose crimes bring them down, one way or another. “The Fallen Angel” by David Hewson (Delacorte, $25, 368 pages): Nic Costa, a detective with Rome’s Questura (special police force), is on “staycation” when a murder and a former flame both show up suddenly. Ninth in the series.

Curt Avery buys and sells antiques at flea markets and shows. He knows his stuff. He can date a watercolor to the 1890s by the style of the fishing pole it shows, or a stitched sampler to the late 18th century by a quirk “Killer Stuff and in the lettering. Tons of Money: His knowledge Seeking History and gives him an edge, Hidden Gems in Flea-Market Amer- letting him buy, ica” (The Penguin say, a piece of Press), by Maureen stonewear from a Stanton: shop and selling it later for $1,000 profit. Any fan of PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow” would love to spend time with him. And that’s just the opportunity Maureen Stanton gives us in “Killer Stuff and Tons of Money.” She takes us along as Avery loads up his pickup truck with maybe $30,000 of antiques and drives off to yet another hall, or open field, to see what he can do. It’s a fascinating look at the life of professional dealers who check out all the stuff at these shows before the rest of us even show up. In this world, Avery (that’s a pseudonym, at his request) can make a $1,300 sale before he even sets up, or lose a chance for $1,000 profit by reaching another dealer’s table five seconds too late. The appearance of a rental truck at the setup for a flea market is good news, we learn. It’s the mark of an amateur seller ripe for the picking. “Fresh blood,” as Avery puts it. But antiques dealers aren’t always in the driver’s seat. Stanton tells us how they’re affected by popular trends, eBay, “Antiques Roadshow” and even the weather at outdoor events. For Avery, it’s not really about the money, she tells us. He’s lured by his love for the old objects and the stories they tell. And before long, her readers get swept along by his knowledge and the world he operates in. They may not make a penny from this book, but it’s a wise investment.

A random violent encounter on New Year’sEveleadstoescalatingactsofharassment,whichmostlyembarrassratherthan frighten Henry as he’s got other things to worry about: his ex-wife’s illness is getting more serious, and he’s cautiously starting to rebuild a relationship with his son, who now has a son of his own. The narrative jumps around among Henry and a number of other disparate characters — his ex, his son and daughterin-law, his former business colleagues and the man who persists in stalking him — and the effect underscores the current of loss and sorrow running throughout the novel: Everyone is in their own protected, isolated sphere, both yearning for and fearful of reaching out. It makes the moments of actual meaningful connection all the more moving — if not utterly heartwrenching — and the moments when characters reject such connections both tragic and, in one instance, brutallydisturbing.Asidefromthehandful of violent acts, this is not a story with a lot of fireworks. It moves slowly and deliberately in delicate elegiac prose, gracefully constructed and wholly consuming.

Robert Frost’s New Hampshire withstands time as farm evolves

A POETIC LEGACY By RUSSELL CONTRERAS

The Associated Press

D

ERRY, N.H. — From Highway 28, the New Hampshire farm once owned by poet Robert Frost may seem unchanged from a century ago. Yet the picturesque New England white barn and farmhouse recently underwent thousands of dollars in renovation including a new roof, foundation work and other upgrades. And for the first time in decades the Robert Frost Farm — which sits on 30 acres in Derry, N.H., about 10 miles north of the Massachusetts border — now closely resembles the place Frost left as he embarked on a life as a full-time poet, officials at the historic site say. This year marks the 100th anniversary of when Frost sold the poultry farm for $1,100 to help pay for a three-year adventure in England where he would begin obtaining recognition in the world of letters. After walking away from the farm, Frost won four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry, read at the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy and received a number of honorary degrees and awards. But Frost scholars and enthusiasts say the poet never forgot those years in Derry. That’s because the Derry years were some of the happiest of his life, and the farm and its New England grounds were the source of inspiration for some of his most famous poems. “This is where he spent the most time with his family and had the happiest of memories,” said Justine Golden, a tour guide. “After he left here, it was never the same. His life was fil-

led with tragedy.” New Hampshire officials hope the restored house along with newly placed markers around the Hyla Brook Nature Poetry Trail, or the area that surrounds the farm, will give visitors a sense of how the environment played a role in some of Frost’s more memorable works. The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation recently placed markers at the spots scholars believed inspired Frost to later write the poems “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” “Mending Wall” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” among others. “Derry was a place where he grew as a poet,” said Mark Schorr, executive director of the Robert Frost Foundation, based in nearby Lawrence, Mass. “The farm turned out to be exactly what Robert Frost needed. It

gave him time to dream.” Frost moved to Derry in 1900 after his grandfather agreed to buy the farm for him on one condition — Frost and his family stay there for at least 10 years before Frost could own it. Frost worked as a poultry farmer for five years, before turning to teaching as an English instructor at nearby Pinkerton Academy. In between his duties as a farmer, Frost walked the land and wrote constantly. He and his wife, Elinor, homeschooled their children, and Frost began to use the landscape in his work. Upon leaving the farm, Frost won acclaim for his poetry but his wife died of breast cancer in 1937, his son Carol committed suicide, daughter Marjorie died after childbirth, and daughter Irma was later committed to a mental hospital. The poet also battled bouts of depression. Frost died in 1963. To re-create his happy life at the farm, the New Hampshire’s

Division of Parks and Recreation, which purchased the property shortly after Frost died, restored furniture and purchased period pieces around the home under the advisement of his late daughter, Lesley Frost Ballantine. For example, visitors to the farm will see antique books Frost read as a child and a chair next to the kitchen window where Frost wrote. Some items, officials say, were definitely used by Frost, including the pair of wooden toilets near the entrance. “Of all the things in this house,” Golden said, “we are sure the great man sat here.” Throughout the summer, the farm will host a number of poet readings and lectures on Frost. The farm closes for the season to visitors Oct. 11. Since the time Frost and his family lived at the farm, much has changed in the area. Strip malls and stores cater to discount-minded Massachusetts shoppers lured to New Hamp-

shire because there’s no sales tax. To the south in Lawrence, Mass., where Frost and his wife graduated high school as co-valedictorians, sits a majority-Latino city where the old mills have closed and residents struggle with basic adult literacy. Still, walking around the farm, even today, gives visitors the

same sense of creative seclusion that Frost experienced, Golden said. That hasn’t changed, she said. “There’s something about this farm that pulls you in,” Golden said. “That’s probably why Frost always remembered it.”

Double lot accents Larksville home Story and photos by Marianne Tucker Puhalla Advertising Projects Writer

A private driveway and plenty of off-street parking are among the highlights at 124 E. State St., Larksville. Listed by Mike Kon of Realty World - Tom Hart Realty for $119.000, this ‘stately’ State St. home, no pun intended, offers spacious rooms, a double lot, and a view of much of the Wyoming Valley from large windows and a covered front porch. White vinyl siding here is accented by black shutters and many original windows with mullions. There is just a touch of Tudor styling inside with a kitchen with arched hearth

and beamed ceilings in many of the rooms. The covered front porch leads into the 15-by-15 family room. With a gray and burgundy slate tile floor, this room offers a striking natural stone fireplace and two paneled walls and two white walls. This room has a beamed ceiling with ceiling fan, an open staircase to the right, and a large front-facing window with mullions. A left leads into the 12-by-14 living room. Here you find white walls, windows front and side, and green carpeting that leads rear into the adjacent 15-by-13 dining room. This room has four large windows to the side and a single window facing rear. This room also has a beamed ceiling

and brass chandelier. There is a coat closet tucked to the right. A modern three-quarter bath off the rear of this room has an oak vanity with white cultured marble sink, tan tile floor and built-in linen cabinet. There is a tiled walk-in shower and a single window facing rear. The nearby 17-by-13 kitchen offers plenty of room for a center table. There is an arched hearth that surrounds the natural gas cooktop. Here is a built-in wall oven, and lots of wooden cabinets with burnt orange countertops.
