That was how two of Jerry Sandusky’s accusers explained the former Penn State assistant coach’s hold over them. “He told me that if I ever told anyone that I’d never see my family again,” the former foster child said Wednesday, the third day of testimony in Sandusky’s child sexual abuse trial. He said it terrified him when Sandusky uttered the threat after the coach pinned him while wrestling in the basement of the Sandusky home and perAP PHOTOS formed oral sex on him.

BELLEFONTE — One, a foster child, said he was threatened, warned he would never see his family again if he ever told anyone what happened. Another said he stayed quiet because he didn’t want to stop getting tickets to the hottest game in town — Penn State football. See SANDUSKY, Page 12A

The front porch of Jim Walsh’s Wilkes-Barre home is decorated with flags. The World War II veteran says he is distressed that more flags are not flying on patriotic holidays.

When flags don’t fly

By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – World War II veteran Jim Walsh said he is concerned citizens are losing their sense of pride in the American flag, and he wants local officials to work to restore it. He said he bases his theory on his observation that many homes and businesses fail to display the flag. Government leaders, Walsh charged, don’t use their posi-

tions to encourage the display of flags, especially on holidays like Memorial Day, July 4th and Flag Day, which is observed today. “There seems to be a lack of patriotism,” said the 87-yearold Walsh, who said he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. “I want to see a flag flying from every home and business. Material things influence us too much. People seem to forget that they are able to have these

things because of the people who fought for this country – the country the flag represents,” he said. American flags adorn his Mayer Street home, along with rows of red, white and blue flowers. Three-bulb candles are in each window – the bulbs are red, white and blue.

He said the mayors and even some veterans groups haven’t done enough to encourage people to display flags and display their patriotism. “We the veterans and adults must rekindle in ourselves and our children the so-called oldfashioned way of patriotism,”

PLAINS TWP. – While cleaning up after a fire that heavily damaged the Plains Little League’s concession stand and press box, coaches Bill Cook and Walt Gulitus found a cellphone inside. Police said the phone led to the arrest of Brian Gashi, 39, of Harding, who was charged Wednesday with setting the early Saturday morning blaze to cover up a burglary. Gashi admitted to police he used gasoline from the league’s garage to ignite a fire on the second floor of the building. Flames swept through the structure, causing extensive damage and burning decades of newspaper clip-

pings of championship teams. “I’m pleased police arrested the person who did this,” Don Fox, a member of the league’s board of directors, said on Gashi Wednesday. “But it’s just the beginning for us now.” Gashi was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on two counts of arson, and one count each of reckless burning, burglary, theft and criminal mischief. He was jailed at the Luzerne County See ARSON, Page 12A

Kingston Twp. kills plan to OK keeping chickens

By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

KINGSTON TWP. – What came first, the chicken or the egg? The age-old debate won’t be solved in parts of Kingston Township, as the board of supervisors voted against changing the zoning ordinance to allow for the keeping of fowl in residential areas at a meeting Wednesday. Supervisors James Reino Jr., Jeffrey Box and Shirley Moyer voted against changing the ordinance, while Gary Mathers remained the lone supporter. Resident Chris Mathers of the

Trucksville section championed the issue a few months ago and presented research on the topic for the board to digest. Chris Mathers, wife of board member Gary Mathers, lives on a large lot about 600 feet away from the nearest agriculturally zoned parcel, which allows for the raising of chickens. Supervisors told Chris Mathers the issue lies in how the birds would affect neighbors and property values and whether the zoning officer could handle managing the flocks. Chris Mathers said the birds could be regulated via a permit

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE -- A man wanted in the murder of his sister in Jordan in 1992 was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Wilkes-Barre, the U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release. Namer Yousef Al Daoud, 44, was turned over to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the service said. Al Daoud allegedly shot and killed his sister then escaped, the marshals service said. An arrest warrant was issued by the High Criminal Court in Jordan in 1994, charging him with intentional murder, which carries a maximum possible penalty of death. In August 2008 Interpol issued an arrest notice that was circulated worldwide. The marshals service New York/New Jersey regional fugitive task force was investigating Al Daoud’s whereabouts and developed information he might be in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. He was located in WilkesBarre and the marshals service in conjunction with ICE arrested him without incident in the 1100 block of South Main Street. The marshals service said Wilkes-Barre police assisted in the investigation. Al Daoud will be processed and held, pending further investigation and a hearing before an immigration judge, the service said.

Resolution targets disease

A resolution sponsored by state Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, designating June as Cockayne Syndrome Awareness Month in Pennsylvania, was unanimously approved in the House of Representatives. Cockayne Syndrome, or CS, is an extremely rare and fatal genetic disorder that affects fewer than 200 children worldwide. CS is characterized by short stature and an appearance of premature aging. Children with the disease have small heads, impaired nervous systems and sensitivity to sunlight. One of those young patients and her family live in Nanticoke. Juliann “Tuttie” Tompkins is 3 and was diagnosed with the disorder last year. Along with her parents, Brent and Christina; and her brother, Dustin, the family were guests of Toohil and present on the House floor when the resolution was read.

WILKES-BARRE – The Wilkes-Barre Area School Board on Wednesday put off until its next meeting to decide how much payment it will accept in back taxes owed on the Courthouse Square Towers building and whether the total will include four years when it was listed as exempt. The owner, the estate of Maurice Koury, who died in 2008, is willing to pay for the years 2010 and 2011, said attorney Harry Mattern. He could not explain why the property located across North Street from the Luzerne County Courthouse was not on the tax rolls from 2006 through 2009. “I don’t have any way to address that,”

said Mattern. He further asked the board to forgo an estimated $7,000 in interest and penalties owed for 2010 on the property, reducing the amount to $42,788 from $49,710. The 2011 bill has not been turned in by the district’s tax collector, Berkheimer Associates, he added. The decision comes as the board considers tapping its reserve funds to balance the budget for the 2012-2013 school year. The board has until the end of June to pass a final budget. It’s likely to do so at its June 28 meeting, the same one at which it will decide the tax payment. After meeting in executive session to discuss potential litigation arising out of the back-tax issue, board member James Susek chided Mattern for asking to ex-

The decision comes as the board considers tapping its reserve funds to balance the budget for the 2012-2013 school year. clude payment of the interest and penalties on top of the estimated $170,000 to $200,000 owed for the four years when the property was not on the tax rolls. “That takes a lot of moxie,” said Susek. While the board finalizes its own budget, it agreed to contribute $2.6 million towards the $8.9 million operating budget for the Wilkes-Barre Area Career & Technical Center for the 2012-2013 school year.

The contribution is $79,178 lower than what it contributed for the current school year. The board also heard from P. Richard Scheller, president of GEO-Science Engineering Co. of Jessup, on the condition of Meyers High School. The company in conjunction with Borton Lawson architecture and engineering looked at the structural integrity of the building to determine if it has moved since 2007. Scheller explained a leaking water line did not cause the building to settle and it “continues to be safe.” However, the board voted 5-4 against a $1,012 revision that would have increased the cost of the drawings for the water line replacement project to $39,252 to A&E Group Inc. of Wilkes-Barre.

NANTICOKE – Nanticoke bid a solemn farewell Wednesday to a veteran cop, tireless police chief and devoted friend. City police Chief James Cheshinski, 60, died unexpectedly Saturday at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. Dozens of police officers from Nanticoke and surrounding departments, the Pennsylvania State Police and the state Attorney General’s Office paid their respects Wednesday at his memorial service. Those who knew him well remembered Cheshinski as a law enforcement veteran of 41 years who had held every rank on the Nanticoke police force and was committed to improving the department.

was probably the best boss I’ve had,” said Sgt. Brian Williams of the Nanticoke Police Department. “He was more than a chief; he was a great friend to all of us … He was easy to talk to. He was usually in and his door was always open. We just didn’t talk about work; we talked about life in general. If you had a problem, he would help you out with it.” “He had a great personality,” said Capt. Bill Shultz, Cheshinski’s partner of more than 20 years. “He was able to communicate and get along with others, as opposed to some of us. He was honest; he was a man of integrity, a family man, a husband, father and grandfather; a great cop and a great boss, too.” “He will be sadly missed,” Shultz added. “He was like a brother to me.” City officials said the city will miss

Plymouth police Chief Myles Collins called Cheshinski “the kind of guy you could sit down and talk to, and if he could help you, he was always there for you.” He said the chief sought to build relationships and coordination among local police departments. He was instrumental in bringing a canine unit to Nanticoke, taught children about the dangers of drug abuse in the D.A.R.E. program and encouraged other officers to become D.A.R.E. instructors as well, officers said. But even more so, Cheshinski’s coworkers remembered the chief as an approachable boss who was always willing to offer a helping hand where he could. “I’ve worked a lot of places, but he See CHIEF, Page 12A

PARADISE TWP. -- Dunmore business magnate Louis A. DeNaples now has no controlling interest in the Poconos casino he founded and built in 2006 and operated until 2008. The state Gaming Control Board voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a restructuring plan for Mount Airy Casino Resort near Mount Pocono that allowed DeNaples to transfer his state casino license and control of the casino to seven relatives. DeNaples’ request to the board comes three years after he made an agreement with Dauphin County prosecutors to give up his right to operate the establishment in exchange for dropping perjury charges they filed against him related to his grand jury testimony. He allegedly lied about his former connections with area organized crime family members. The charges were dropped with the condition he relinquish control of the casino.

In 2009, the seven-member Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board voted unanimously to allow Lisa DeNaples to take over Mount Airy Casino Resort as manager of a trust called The Lisa Trust. But her father still remained the financial guarantor of about $250 million in loans to Mount Airy, meaning he needed to maintain a license from the gaming board and be subject to its background investigations. On Wednesday, the board approved DeNaples’ request to personally take on more than $100 million in casino debt, which also puts the casino in a firmer financial footing. Part of the board’s action Wednesday was approving the new ownership plan that gives a one-seventh interest in the casino to trusts in the names of Louis DeNaples’ children and grandchildren.

that included former judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella as investors. The ex-judges are serving lengthy prison sentences for accepting money from the builder of two juvenile detention centers. The townhouse project was never completed, and W-Cat defaulted on a $4.35 million loan from First National Community Bank in Dunmore, where Cestone and Conahan had served on the board of directors. Cestone resigned from the bank board in June 2009. He was the president of S.G. Mastriani Construction Co. and Cestone Cus-

Cestone’s bankruptcy petition was filed on June 7, the same day The Powell Law Group, one of the investors in the W-Cat project, filed a counterclaim against FNCB that claims the project failed in part because the bank insisted Cestone be hired as the builder. The counterclaim, in response to a bank filing related to the loan, alleges Cestone did not perform work on the project in a timely manner, causing delays that harmed efforts to sell the townhouses.

Berwick man pleads guilty to making of meth By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Berwick man charged with his role in making drugs along the Susquehanna River pleaded guilty Wednesday to a related charge. David Fausnaught, 52, entered the plea to a charge of criminal conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. Judge Lesa Gelb said Fausnaught will be sentenced on Aug. 2. According to court papers, Fausnaught was one of three men observed by a Fish and Boat Commission officer passing a plastic bottle back and forth among them on July 23. The officer was patrolling the river in Nescopeck Township and

overheard the men asking each other, “Is it done yet?” When the officer approached the men, Richard Rogers told him the bottle contained “chemicals to make speed.” A bag and empty pseudoephedrine packages were also found near the group. Police said that in the bag they found batteries, pseudoephedrine, camping fuel, coffee filters, drain cleaner, funnels, tubing, gloves and a number of other items police say are commonly used in manufacturing methamphetamine. Police later located a receipt that indicated Fausnaught purchased medications from the Walmart store in Bloomsburg. The medications are commonly used

to manufacture methamphetamine. Fausnaught was one of several people charged in the incident, including Rogers and his wife, Bobbi Jo Rogers, who are scheduled to stand trial in August on charges relating to the Susquehanna River incident and in relation to the dismantling of 17 alleged meth labs. Investigators say there were eight organizations that worked independently to produce the drug. Meth labs were uncovered in Wilkes-Barre, Newport Township, Dorrance Township, Nescopeck Township, Nanticoke, Edwardsville, Hollenback Township and Beach Haven, according to the state Office of the Attorney General.

that her father’s intent all along was to pass the license and business to the next generation of DeNaples. “Family is first and foremost to my father and his vision for Mount Airy Casino Resort has always been to establish a business his children and grandchildren could own and operate together. From the very beginning, he has envisioned Mount Airy as a legacy for generations to come and today’s events are the natural next steps in that plan. This has always been my father’s intention not only for his family, but for our 1,300 employees and the communities we

serve,” DeNaples said. Mount Airy opened in October 2007, the first casino in the state with a hotel. DeNaples’ license was suspended in February 2008 after he was charged with perjury. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board lifted a suspension of his license in early June 2009. Under that agreement, DeNaples could give advice and financial backing, but legal control was transferred into the Lisa Trust.

On a journey of discovery By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

LEHMAN TWP. – Bidding farewell to the comfort and familiarity of high school for the uncertainty of a new life, 144 Lake-Lehman High School graduates received their diplomas Wednesday evening. Valedictorian Shelby Jean Foster quoted actor Alan Alda to sum up their anticipation of beginning a new chapter in their lives. “You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you will discover will be wonderful. What you will discover is yourself,” she quoted. Families and friends filled the Edward Edwards Stadium at the Lake-Lehman High School to celebrate the accomplishments of the class of 2012. President of the senior class Kevin Thomas Katchko Jr. said his class accomplished great feats, including raising close to $8,000 for its Last Knight Lock-In party, and supporting the schools outstanding sports teams. But he also advised his classmates to recognize the sacrifices

that were made to get them to this point. “Parents, teachers, administrators all helped us,” he said. Valuing the past but ready to build a new future, co-president of the student council, Rachel Holena told her classmates to “remember the past which started the chapter.” Remembering the past, including mistakes, is key to making a new future, she said. Sometimes during the construction of a new future a brick wall must come down. Salutatorian Kristen Dicton Boyle told her class “brick walls are there for a reason and you will need to find a way over whatever is holding you back.” Finding examples within her own class, Boyle said one classmate worked hard to develop the perfect pitch for the school musical and another wrote a novel using her own childhood experiences in order to help others.

black and gold gowns fluttering in the breeze and a full stadium, Superintendent James E. McGovern said, “What was once difficult to endure will be sweet to remember.” Turning his eyes to the families and staff, he thanked them all, including volunteers who helped the class along. “Take a moment and thank your parents for their unconditional love and support,” he told the students. After receiving their diplomas, members of the class of 2012 blasted each other with silly string and tossed their hats into the air. Eager to begin a path, graduate Michelle Lipski is looking forward to studying biochemistry at St. Francis University, Loretto, Pa., this fall. Despite the rocky job market, she is confident she will be able to find a career as a pharmacist. Christopher Gerlin thanks his high school British literature teacher, Cathy Wolfe, for inspiring him to become a secondary education major at Luzerne County Community College, Nanticoke.

It deadlocked on five other felony counts, resulting in a mistrial on those charges. A statement issued by the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday said prosecutors will not seek to retry Edwards on the five unresolved counts. Edwards was accused of masterminding a scheme to use about $1 million in secret payments from two wealthy political donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.

Surgeon sought in shooting

The early morning shooting death of a 33-year-old woman Wednesday triggered the search for a trauma surgeon and forced the lockdown of a Buffalo hospital as police combed the grounds for the gunman. A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that police are looking for Timothy Jorden Jr. in connection with the shooting death of the woman in a stairwell at the Erie County Medical Center. Jorden, 49, a former Army medic who has been licensed to practice medicine in New York since 2002, treats patients at the medical center and other major hospitals in the area. He has a medical degree from the University at Buffalo and trained at the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash.

Car bomb blasts kill 66

A coordinated wave of car bombs struck Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad and several other cities Wednesday, killing at least 66 people and wounding more than 200 in one of the deadliest days in Iraq since U.S. troops withdrew from the country. The bloodshed comes against a backdrop of political divisions that have raised tensions and threatened to provoke a new round of the violence that once pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war. Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they bore the hallmarks of Sunni insurgents who frequently target Shiites in Iraq. Wednesday’s blasts were the third this week targeting the annual pilgrimage that sees hundreds of thousands of Shiites converge on a golden-domed shrine in Baghdad’s northern neighborhood of Kazimiyah to commemorate the eighth century death of a revered Shiite saint, Imam Moussa alKadhim. The commemoration culminates on Saturday.

OKLAHOMA CITY — In the stables at a prominent quarter horse track in New Mexico, workers quietly nicknamed Jose Trevino Morales’s stables as the “Zetas’ stables” and say they often saw people show up with bags of cash to buy the horses. On Tuesday, authorities raided those stables and a horse ranch in Oklahoma accusing Trevino and others of running a sophisticated money-laundering operation connected to one of Mexico’s most powerful and ruthless drug cartels. Federal authorities accuse Trevino’s older brother, Miguel Angel Trevino Mo-

The pope’s U.S. ambassador praised American bishops Wednesday for confronting the government over religious liberty issues, including resisting the mandate from President Barack Obama’s administration that health insurance cover birth control. Archbishop Carlo Vigano, the papal nuncio based in Washington, noted that the advocacy required a “delicate” approach in the context of a presidential election. But Vigano said the concerns were so worrisome that bishops had to act. Vigano was addressing an Atlanta meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The national gathering is the bishops’ first since dioceses filed a dozen lawsuits against an Obama administration mandate that most employers provide health insurance covering birth control.

quarter horses with drug money at auction and disguise the source of the funds used to buy them so that the Zetas’ involvement would be masked. They would often pay in cash, or use fake names, which helped keep the owners and the money a secret. Since 2008, the operation racked up millions of dollars in transactions in California, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, prosecutors said. The New York Times first reported the raids and the alleged connection to the Zetas cartel, citing a months-long investigation and several anonymous sources.

Jose Trevino, his wife and five others were arrested. Seven others, including another Trevino brother, were charged but remain at large. “This case is a prime example of the ability of Mexican drug cartels to establish footholds in legitimate U.S. industries and highlights the serious threat money laundering causes to our financial system,” said Richard Weber, the chief of the IRS’ criminal investigation unit.

ALBANY, N.Y. — Landowners along New York’s southern border who support natural gas drilling are cheered by reports that the Cuomo administration is considering allowing hydraulic fracturing on a limited basis in towns that want it, though opponents call the idea “shameful.” The administration is pursuing a plan to limit the controversial shale gas drilling technology to portions of Broome, Chenango, Steuben and Tioga counties,

The New York Times quoted a senior official at the state Department of Environmental Conservation as saying, along with others with knowledge of the situation. That region, along the border with heavily drilled Pennsylvania, is considered most likely to yield significant quantities of natural gas in New York. The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York, which is seeking to lease land for drilling, has persuaded several dozen towns to pass resolutions supporting drilling. Many more towns have passed bans or moratoriums on drilling. “We’re encouraged. It appears as though the administration is trying to move the ball forward,” Dan Fitzsimmons, who heads the landowner group, told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The Times reported that officials spoke

on the condition of anonymity because deliberations are continuing. Cuomo and Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens have declined to give a specific timetable for completion of the environmental review and haven’t said definitively whether fracking will be allowed in New York. Numerous environmental, health, and community groups are seeking a statewide ban on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Opponents of drilling and fracking cite risks of water and air pollution. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that the governor would even think about exposing some New Yorkers to fracking hazards while protecting others,” said Walter Hang of Toxics Targeting. “There should be no second-class citizens when it comes to shale gas fracking in New York.”

WASHINGTON — Republicans and Democrats seem to be living on different planets when it comes to how to meet U.S. energy needs. Republicans overwhelmingly push for more oil drilling. Democrats back conservation and new energy sources such as wind and solar power. A survey by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research shows the polarized positions on energy that have divided Congress and emerged in the presidential campaign also run deep among the public. While main Even on areas jorities both parties where there’s say energy is majority an important agreement, a issue, the poll shows that partisan gap partisan idenremains. tification is closely tied to people’s perceptions of the causes of the country’s energy problems and possible solutions. No other demographic factor — not race, age, gender or income level — is as consistently associated with opinions on energy as political party identification. For example: •Three of four Democrats surveyed report that a major reason for the county’s energy problems is that industry does not do enough to support clean energy. By comparison 43 percent of the Republicans questioned believe that. •Three of four Republicans in the poll cite government limits on drilling as a major reason for energy problems, compared with 34 percent of Democrats. Also, 85 percent say it is a serious problem that the United States needs to buy energy from other countries, but there’s disagreement about why. Among Republicans in the poll, 65 percent say the U.S. does not produce enough domestic energy; just over half the Democrats say people use too much energy. Even on areas where there’s majority agreement, a partisan gap remains. There is broad backing for programs to help consumers learn to make more energy-efficient choices, but the support is 81 percent among Democrats and 57 percent among Republicans.

The mountainous Haffa region is one of several areas where government forces are battling rebels for control in escalating violence.

He said he will be in personal contact with the opposition inside Syria. Earlier, Syria’s Foreign Ministry expressed “astonishment” over Ladsous’ statement that the country was already in a civil war.

WILKES-BARRE – A West Hazleton man was convicted Wednesday of all charges relating to the sexual assault of a teen girl over a three-year period. Hernan Torres, 40, of Tamarack Street, was found guilty of charges of rape, incest and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, and two counts each of aggravated indecent assault and

granted a request for a judgment of acquittal on a second charge of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. Torres’ trial began Monday. Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts presented the testimony of the teen girl, now16, her brother and others. Torres’ attorney, Barry Dyller, did not call witnesses to testify on his client’s behalf. Torres did not take the stand. Torres, originally from Honduras, had been free on $25,000

sentenced on Sept. 28. Torres must also undergo an evaluation by the state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board. According to court papers, Torres was charged in August 2011 after a woman told police she believed Torres sexually assaulted her daughter. The girl later told police in an interview that from around May 2008 to August 2011, Torres had repeatedly assaulted her inside his West Hazleton home. The girl said the abuse began

the assaults, but Torres would hit her to make her comply. Torres told the girl repeatedly not to tell anyone about the abuse, court papers say, and said he would physically harm her if she did. The incidents happened at least three times a week for two years, the girl told investigators.

Casey: Farm bill would directly impact Northeastern Pa. farmers Bill would cost $969 billion, but cuts would reduce deficit by $23 billion, senator says. By JOHN P. ANISTRANSKI Times Leader Intern

The Elbattah family of Shavertown: Caden, 4; Addison, 2; and Murad enjoy the event.

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, on Wednesday called for Congress to unite behind the new farm bill, the passage of which would directly impact farmers in Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wyoming counties. The bill, which will determine agricultural policy for the next five fiscal years, is projected to cost $969 billion. Still, it includes a number of cuts that will reduce the deficit by an estimated $23 billion, Casey said. A significant portion of the bill’s $23 billion in cuts comes from its elimination of direct payments to struggling farmers. The bill instead focuses on an expansion of crop insurance, offering affordable policies that pay out to farmers who experience poor yields or declining product value. These policies are presently available through the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation, a

Casey has proposed two additional amendments to assist local independent farmers. The Local Market Loans amendment offers direct operating loans of $50,000 to farm businesses. The Microloan amendment is targeted at startup farmers who will qualify for loans of $35,000 or less. Casey said he hoped the farm bill can ultimately overcome “very partisan voices putting ideology ahead of job creation.”

U.S. Department of Agriculture subsidiary. Casey said the main reason to focus on getting the new farm bill into law is economic growth. In a state where “literally millions of people live in rural areas” and 94,500 individuals are employed as farmers, a thriving agricultural sector is indispensable to citizens’ economic well-being, he said. According to PA Farm Link, agriculture leads any other industry in Pennsylvania with $5.7 billion in total sales. Casey’s office said approximately $46.4 billion is reaped from the overall annual impact of farming on the commonwealth’s economy. These numbers are largely echoed in local farming economies. The USDA calculates that agricultural products result in $13.5 million in sales each year in Wyoming County. In Lackawanna County, agriculture accounts for $16.2 million in sales.

Blue Cross will offer Selenski will be allowed change of attire insurance shopping A new trend in the health insurance industry comes to the region today. Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania, headquartered in Wilkes-Barre, will open a retail store in Bartonsville, Monroe County, this morning giving potential customers the opportunity to shop for insurance in a retail environment. The insurer, which serves 13 counties in Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania, already is eyeing locations for future stores in the region including the Scranton area. “Consumers have become more savvy about their health care and how they spend their health care dollars,” said Paul Holdren, senior vice president and chief sales and marketing officer for Blue Cross of NEPA. “I believe that trend will accelerate as federal health care reform and health insurance exchanges are fully implemented.” On Jan. 1, 2014, the federal health care reform law calls for health insurance exchanges to be operational where individual consumers can shop for and compare policies. The exchanges are designed to offer consumers easier access to affordable coverage options. Blue Cross insurance agents in the store will help consumers

navigate insurance options, including explaining the tradeoff of higher deductible coverage in exchange for a lower premium. If they feel more comfortable not talking to agents, they may find information on their own at one of the store’s interactive kiosks. Holdren said the space was modeled after Apple stores and that other insurers such as Highmark Blue Cross have opened similar retail outlets with success. Holdren said an online Blue Cross store began operating last August and sales of individual health insurance plans has soared each month. What had been a 50- or 60-per-month business for new contracts is now up to more than 500 each month. If the Supreme Court doesn’t rule against the constitutionality of the health care law, Holdren said those numbers could skyrocket. “We expect, as a result of Obamacare … that there will be even more people (looking for individual plans), that the individual coverage will be even more important to us,” he said. Holdren said opening the store now takes advantage of the public spotlight that has been focused on the law and gives people interested in price shopping for plans a place to go. The poor economy and people working part time without insurance also sparked an increase in demand, he said.

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Hugo Selenski, accused in a double murder, will be able to shed prison garb for future court hearings. In the latest court filing for their client, Selenski’s attorneys asked that he be allowed to wear “civilian clothing” due to pre-

trial publicity. Attorneys Shelley Centini, Edward Rymsza and David Lampman said in court papers Wednesday that over the years, Selenski’s case “has touched off an avalanche of pre-trial publicity.” Because of that publicity, the attorneys said, Selenski’s appearing at court hearings in prison clothing “generates unfavorable pre-trial publicity and has the potential to prejudice (Selenski) in the eyes of the public.” Judge Fred Pierantoni granted the attorneys’ request, directing

that Selenski be allowed access to his civilian clothing at all court appearances. Selenski, 38, is facing the death penalty if convicted in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski, both of whom were 37 when they died. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski on May 3, 2002. Pierantoni has set Selenski’s trial to begin Sept. 10. “The practice of making (Selenski) appear in prison clothing is demeaning to an individual who is supposedly cloaked by the presumption of

innocence,” the attorneys wrote. Making Selenski appear at any pre-trial hearing or at his trial in prisoner’s clothing violates Selenski’s rights, the attorneys said, by denying him a fair trial and a fair and impartial jury. “There is no compelling … reason for (Selenski) to wear prison clothing to any court proceeding,” the attorneys wrote. The attorneys noted they had previously asked Pierantoni to allow Selenski to wear civilian clothing, and that prosecutors had objected.

Edwardsville man charged with May rape of teen girl Reinaldo Herrera-Ferrer, 32, was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

EDWARDSVILLE – Police on Wednesday charged a man they say raped a teenage girl inside his apartment. Reinaldo Herrera-Ferrer, 32, of Bertram Court, was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on charges of rape, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors. He was jailed at the county prison for lack of $200,000 bail. Police allege Herrera-Ferrer

raped the girl on May 31. It was not reported to police until June 6. According to the criminal Herrera-Ferrer complaint: A teenage girl told a caseworker with Volunteers of America that she was raped by HerreraFerrer while she was working in his apartment. Police said Herrera-Ferrer operates Reilly Transportation from his apartment on Bertram Court. The girl stated she was working for the transportation company in the apartment from 3 to 11

p.m. on May 31. She said HerreraFerrer entered the apartment at about 5 p.m., turned on music and began drinking alcohol. Herrera-Ferrer told the girl to dance, and she refused. After a telephone call from a client, she alleged, Herrera-Ferrer began asking her questions about her sex life. She stated Herrera-Ferrer kissed her on the neck and kept asking her to dance. Police said in the criminal complaint Herrera-Ferrer followed

the girl into a bathroom and then forced her onto a bed where he raped her. The girl said she fought Herrera-Ferrer and was able to escape after she kneed him in the head, the criminal complaint says. She ran out of the apartment building and called a friend. She revealed the alleged rape to a caseworker with Volunteers of America, who contacted police. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on June 20 before District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston.

ASHLEY – Council voted unanimously on Tuesday evening to approve the sale of two borough-owned properties, at 70 N. Main St. and at 23 S. Main St. Council also agreed to hire animal control specialist Charlie Meyers to address the feral cat problem on West Hartford Street. According to council members, Meyers uses a humane capture system. In other business, council announced the borough police handed out more than 85 citations this past weekend for trespassing and public drunkenness along Solomon Creek in the borough. According to borough officials, the popular swimming spot below Bentley’s restaurant has attracted illegal drinking and dumping for many years. Police say they will continue to patrol the area throughout the summer to issue citations and discourage future trespassers.

OTHER OPINION: VOTING RIGHTS

ID law blocks access to ballot

T

O THOSE WHO think it’s no big deal to require a photo ID to vote in Pennsylvania, meet Wilola Lee, 59, Gloria Cuttino, 64, and Nadine Marsh, 84, who all have voted regularly for decades. Each has been told by her native state – Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia, respectively – that there is no record of her birth. As a result, they can’t get the birth certificates required to get the photo IDs now required to continue voting. If the new Pennsylvania voter ID law is allowed to take effect at the November election, these women won’t be able to vote. They and seven other Pennsylvania voters are the named plaintiffs in the suit filed against the law six weeks ago. And then there’s New York native Joyce Block, 89, of Bucks County, who does possess the necessary birth certificate and a Social Security card – but in her maiden name. The only record she has of her EDITORIAL BOARD

marriage to Carl Block nearly 70 years ago is in Hebrew, which wasn’t enough to get her a voter ID until her state senator intervened. State officials continue to downplay the difficulty the new voter-ID law poses for tens of thousands of Pennsylvania voters to continue to exercise their right to vote, although the commonwealth already has scaled back some provisions of the law to “simplify” it. For most people, getting the proper ID does take a bit of effort, but it is manageable and there is help. And the time to start is now. The Committee of Seventy is leading a nonpartisan coalition of more than 80 organizations working to help Pennsylvanians obtain the proper voter ID. Check its website (seventy.org) for information or call 1-866-OURVOTE (1-866-687-8683) for help and for information about how to get involved. Philadelphia Daily News

LETTERS FROM READERS

Reader questions Mundy about voter-ID stance

I

am responding to the letter (June 7) from state Rep. Phyllis Mundy about voter ID. She mentions “facts.” Is it a fact that the poor, elderly and disabled vote Democratic? How does she know? She mentions a judge overturning the law in Wisconsin. She didn’t mention higher courts that have upheld it. It will most likely be upheld in other states too, but not until after the next election. She says it’s not a problem. If no steps are in place to prevent it, how can anyone know if it’s a problem? Cases of voter fraud have been reported. No one knows how many more there might be. I can understand how it might be an inconvenience for some people to get an ID. I can’t understand why one political party is 100 percent against it. I have yet to hear one Democrat say he or she is for it. She mentions the U.S. Justice Department. The same Justice Department that failed to prosecute those – all Democrats – who stood outside a polling place with billy clubs. Donald Buckingham Mehoopany

Women’s health suffers if political ploy succeeds

M

ost people would agree that politics has no place interfering in women’s health. Yet, state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s recently introduced bill, the “Whole Women’s Health Funding Priorities Act,” attempts to do just that when it prohibits Planned Parenthood from receiving public funds. We have been serving Pennsylvania’s health care needs for more than 85 years. Over the last decade alone, 1.4 million Pennsylvania women and men have trusted Planned Parenthood to meet their health care needs. One in five women in the United States turns to Planned Parenthood at some point in their lives for our essential and life-saving services. More than 95 percent of the services that Planned Parenthood provides are preventive, including lifesaving breast and cervical cancer screenings, sexually transmitted disease tests and treatment, infertility screenings and treatment, and birth control education and supplies. In 2011, we provided more than 44,000 breast wellness exams and 200,000 STD tests. While we consider abortion an important element of our care, it is less than 5 percent of what we do, and – consistent with state and federal law – absolutely no public funds are used to pay for abortion. Representative Metcalfe’s misguided bill would disqualify Planned Parenthood from receiving public funds from the state Department of Health for vital health care programs, none of which fund abortions,

such as the STD screening and treatment program, the cervical cancer screening and treatment program, the maternal and child health grant, and the infertility prevention program. It is disappointing that, during tough economic times, Metcalfe and other politicians want to take away access to these important health care services for purely political reasons. When Pennsylvania women and men come to Planned Parenthood, they are not trying to make a political statement, yet our representatives seem eager to sacrifice their health and their access to Planned Parenthood in order to make a political statement. If successful, it will cost Pennsylvania millions. Don’t be fooled; for every $1 spent on family planning, Pennsylvania saves an average of $4 in Medicaid costs. Our doors are open in Pennsylvania today, and – because Planned Parenthood will not let politics interfere with the health care that we provide to 120,000 women and men each year – our doors will remain open.

Writer: Being pro-choice contrary to Catholic faith

T

en years ago, at age 33, I received my first Holy Communion and entered into the fullness of Christian faith in the Catholic Church. I am so thankful and humbled to be able to receive the body and blood of my lord and savior, Jesus Christ, in this holy sacrament, and I deeply love my Catholic faith. I recently have learned that some of my close Catholic friends identify themselves as pro-choice. The Catholic Church clearly teaches that abortion is wrong and that all human life is to be respected from conception until natural death. My heart aches to know that my friends, and so many Catholics, are falling victim to Satan’s lies and are choosing to follow the ways of the world. God commands us: “Thou shall not kill.” It is a scientific fact that life begins at conception. Who are we to defy God? If you are pro-choice and you consider yourself a Christian, please, pray that God will reveal his truth to you. I recently did some Internet research because I was curious to know what per-

centage of Catholics are pro-choice. The answer I found is zero – for to be Catholic is to be pro-life. Sherrie Contardi Lehman Township

Support being sought for Horse Protection Act

A

BC and CBS recently featured an undercover investigation video by the Humane Society of the United States at a training barn for Tennessee walking horses. The footage shows horses being brutally whipped, kicked, shocked in the face and violently cracked across the heads and legs with heavy wooden sticks. It also shows these horses being subjected to a cruel practice known as soring – the intentional infliction of pain to their feet and legs to produce the unnatural high stepping, otherwise known as the “big lick.” While being sored, horses are left in stalls for days, fitted with tall, heavy stacks of pads to accentuate their gaits and compelled to stand at unnatural angles. Their legs are covered in caustic chemicals, such as kerosene or diesel oil, and plastic wrap to “cook” the chemicals deep into their flesh. It is common to see horses lying in their stalls, moaning in pain. Foreign objects are often inserted between the horse’s hoof, adding to its suffering. Chains are put on the foot, and they slide up and down when the horses walk, further irritating the already painful areas and producing the exaggerated gait. All this for a ribbon! Please write or call your U.S representative and two U.S. senators, urging them to fix the problems in the Federal Horse Protection Act. For more information, go to this website: www.HSUS.org.

Pesky politics playing out for the public’s pleasure

A

t election time opponents prepare prodigiously, each paying preposterous premiums to persuade people to pull the proper lever. The exponential pace of politicians and proponents of political power permeates and promotes a particular preponderance and peculiarity while promoting public pandering. The Republicans applaud the peddling of profuse plaudits, presumptuously to placate the pompous and the peasantry. Meanwhile, Democrats become phobic, fuming and paranoid. Pessimism punctuates the polling places. Pundits, placards and pugnacious potshots become a passionate potential for fun.

SANDUSKY Continued from Page 1A

Sandusky, 68, is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period, accusations he has denied. His arrest last fall rocked Penn State and led to the firing of football coach Joe Paterno for not taking stronger action against Sandusky after allegations emerged a decade ago. Three of Sandusky’s accusers testified Wednesday, bringing to five the number of them to take the stand. Tom Kline, the lawyer for one of them, told reporters outside the courthouse: “It’s just remarkable how many children one man can shower with.” The 25-year-old man who told jurors about the threat to keep

him away from his biological family when he was younger said he believed Sandusky’s wife was inside the home, on a different floor, at the time. A foster child placed with another family, he occasionally stayed in the Sanduskys’ basement in State College in the late 1990s. Speaking in a calm but sometimes hesitant voice, he said Sandusky later apologized for the threat: “He told me he didn’t mean it and that he loved me.” The man, identified in court papers as Victim 10, said Sandusky also assaulted him on other occasions in 1998 and 1999, including once at a pool and another time in the basement. He said he was about 11 at the time. An expressionless Sandusky sat mostly still at the defense table during his testimony, occasionally turning his head to look the accuser in the eye.

N

E

The accuser is one of two who came forward after Sandusky was initially charged in November with assaulting eight boys. Sandusky’s attorneys have suggested his accusers have financial reasons for coming forward. Under cross-examination, the man testified that he was the roommate of another Sandusky accuser at a camp sponsored by Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile. He also acknowledged spending nearly two years in prison for a robbery and involvement with drugs and alcohol but said he is doing better now. “I’m married. I’m expecting” a child, he said. Another boy, dubbed Victim 8, has never been located, and his identity is a mystery to prosecutors, but jurors heard about his alleged sexual abuse by Sandusky anyway. Judge John Cleland ruled that

a co-worker of Penn State janitor Jim Calhoun could testify about what Calhoun told him in November 2000. Calhoun is now suffering from dementia. The co-worker, Ron “Buck” Petrosky, said that when he encountered Calhoun in a football team locker room, the janitor told him he had seen Sandusky — he didn’t realize it was a famous coach — making a boy perform oral sex on him. Also Wednesday, another man, identified as Victim 5, said he met Sandusky at Second Mile Camp in 1999 and began attending Penn State games with Sandusky and others. In 2001, he said, Sandusky asked him to work out at a gym on campus and then groped him in the showers. Afterward, the 23-year-old man said, Sandusky drove him home and made “no eye con-

tact” with him. They had no contact since. Another witness, identified as Victim 7, said he was 10 when he met Sandusky through the charity in 1995. He said Sandusky showered with him repeatedly and embraced him during sleepovers. The man recalled attending Penn State football games with Sandusky’s family and receiving free tickets from Sandusky as recently as 2009. “I was kind of ashamed about it. I didn’t want anybody to know,” he said. “Probably most importantly, I didn’t want my parents to keep me from going to games. I didn’t want them to sort of freak out.” He said he told his parents of the abuse only last year, after being approached by police, and that many of the details have only come to him in the past year

or so. He likened blocking out the negative memories to “putting stuff in the attic.” During cross-examination, defense attorney Joseph Amendola noted the man’s testimony was more detailed than what he told a grand jury last year. The witness replied that he had started going to counseling. “Talking about different events and through talking about things in my past, different things have triggered different memories,” he said. Jurors also heard excerpts from a television interview Sandusky did on NBC’s “Rock Center” soon after his arrest in November. In the interview with Bob Costas, Sandusky said he’s not a pedophile but shouldn’t have showered with boys. The judge said the prosecution’s case should wrap up by the end of the day on Friday. Geisinger. A Geisinger spokeswoman said Wednesday afternoon that Rubino was listed in critical condition, Cooney was listed in serious condition and Tomascik was in fair condition. A firefighter was in the rear seat of the Lincoln while other firefighters used the jaws-of-life to remove the car’s front door before Tomascik could be freed. West Linden Street has been closed since October 2010 while Layton Construction, a Utahbased construction company, is finishing a $53 million expansion project that will create a new 30,000-square-foot emergency room and a Heart and Vascular Institute Tower. Layton Construction is the general contractor for the project. Jim McGuire, spokesman for Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, said the crash Wednesday morning did not affect the scheduled opening of the new ER set for July 19. McGuire said hospital operations were not affected by the accident. Police remained on scene for most of the day before the Lincoln was towed from the scene. It remained unknown if Tomascik will face any charges.

She struck a passing vehicle, operated by Mary Burns of Kingston, at the intersection before jumping a curb and striking the outside wall of the emergency room under construction before colliding with a concrete-delivery truck in front of the ambulance entrance. Police said the Lincoln struck Joseph Rubino, of West Pittston, and Thomas Cooney, of Dallas, while they were standing next to the truck. Rubino, an employee of Panzitta Enterprises, and Cooney, an employee of Coon Industries in Pittston, were immediately transported to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. City firefighters worked for nearly 20 minutes to extricate Tomascik from her vehicle, which stopped after it jumped a high curb. She appeared unconscious when she was removed wearing a neck brace. She was placed on a stretcher and taken to an ambulance before being transported to the trauma unit at Geisinger Wyoming Valley. Fire Chief Jay Delaney said that because of the extent of their injuries, the three people were Edward Lewis, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 829-7196. transported to the trauma unit at

the results of their work online today in the British medical journal Lancet. The work was paid for by the Swedish government. The science is still preliminary and one year after the vein was transplanted, it needed to be replaced with another lab-grown vein when doctors noticed the blood flow had dropped. Experts from University College London raised questions in an accompanying commentary about how cost-effective the procedure might be, citing “acute pressures” on health systems that might make these treatments impractical for many patients.

Sumitran-Holgersson estimated the cost at between $6,000 and $10,000. Similar methods have already been used to make new windpipes and urethras for patients. Doctors in Poland have also made blood vessels grown from donated skin cells for dialysis patients. Patients with the girl’s condition are usually treated with a vein transplant from their own leg, a donated vein, or a liver transplant. Those options can be complicated in children and using a donated vein or liver also requires taking anti-rejection medicines.

about the fire. According to the criminal complaint: Gashi told police he left a Wilkes-Barre tavern with a man he knows only as Matt at about 2 a.m. Saturday. They were driving around looking for places to plunder when they came across the Little League field on Wyoming Street. Gashi said he used bolt cutters to cut gate locks and climbed into the concession stand through a window that was forced open. Police said in the criminal complaint that Gashi admitted to helping Matt steal a food fryer, money, electronic scoreboard controls, public address system, food, candy and beverages. Gashi said they were inside the building removing items until daylight. He admitted to pouring gasoline on a wicker basket and igniting the blaze to cover up the burglary, the criminal complaint says. Police said they recovered food and the public address system from a house in Scranton and are attempting to learn who “Matt” is. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on June 19 before District Judge Diana Malast.

Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000 bail. Fox and Gulitus, whose wife, Richette Gulitus, is the league’s president, said it is too early to say if the building can be repaired or if it needs to be razed. There is heavy fire damage to its roof and pressroom and extensive water damage to the concession stand below. Gulitus said four large refrigerators and freezers may have to be thrown out, as well as $10,000 worth of baseballs, softballs, bats and helmets that were all charred. Fox said the concession stand is their main source of income, earning $600 to $1,000 when games are played. “Do you know what we have to deposit in the bank? Thirty dollars we made from last night’s games,” Gulitus said. “You can figure out our losses.” Gulitus said they were cleaning up the concession stand on Sunday when a cellphone was found hanging from a plastic jug near a garage door.

Luzerne borough to seek bids for trash collection contract By STEVE FONDO For The Times Leader

LUZERNE – Council voted unanimously on Wednesday night to seek bids for the borough’s garbage collection contract. The current three-year refuse collection contract with United Waste Disposal is set to expire in October of this year. Council also voted to adopt a resolution to participate in the newly formed West Side Council of Governments with Coun-

cilman Tony Perzia as borough representative. The COG is a cooperative organization of local municipal governments that can enhance grant funding and group purchasing. In other business, council announced a neighborhood Crime Watch meeting will be held the week of July 23 at a time and place to be determined to discuss participation in the popular crime prevention program.

Wilkes-Barre Crime Watch head Charlotte Raup is scheduled to address the group at that July meeting. Interested residents are asked to contact the borough for further details. Council also announced a family Fun Day at the Charles Street Park on June 23 at 1 p.m. The event will feature refreshments, prizes, games as well as free digital fingerprinting for all Luzerne children.

U.S. Anti-Doping Agency files charges against seven-time Tour de France winner. By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports Writer

AUSTIN, Texas — For Lance Armstrong, the doping allegations aren’t going away. In fact, they’re starting all over again. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has filed formal charges against the seven-time Tour de France winner, threatening to strip him of his victories in the storied cycling race. Armstrong, who forcefully denied the accusations, could face a lifetime ban from the sport if he is found to have used performanceenhancing drugs. The move by USADA immediately bans him from competing in triathlons, which he turned to after he retired from cycling last year. Armstrong has been dogged by doping allegations since his first Tour victory in 1999, but had hoped his fight to be viewed as a clean champion was finally won after U.S. federal prosecutors See ARMSTRONG, Page 3B

Rory McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, hits a drive on the sixth hole during a practice round for the U.S. Open Championship golf tournament Wednesday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.

Olympic Club layout could mean trouble By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — All it takes is one slight miss for this U.S. Open to get a whole lot harder. Tiger Woods pushed his tee shot on the 670-yard 16th hole at Olympic Club just enough to find the right rough, which was moist from the marine layer that covered the course Wednesday morning. The ball at least was sitting up, allowing him to take a cut with his 4-iron to get it back in play. It’s rare when Woods cannot reach a par 5 in two shots.

But having to smash a 3-wood from 256 yards for his third shot? In the days leading up to the U.S. Open, the biggest debate was whether the toughest stretch at Olympic was the opening six holes, or all 18 of them. About the only consensus was there won’t be a repeat of the score Rory McIlroy posted last year at Congressional — a record-shattering 16-under 268. Jack Nicklaus, an expert on the U.S. Open from having won four of them, was asked to name the toughest and easiest courses he has played in this championship. He finally settled on

Pebble Beach in 1972, when the wind blew so hard that Nicklaus won by three shots at 2-over 290 and never broke 70. As for the easiest? As Nicklaus thought back to the 44 times he had played, USGA executive director Mike Davis playfully interrupted. “You didn’t play last year, did you?” he said to Nicklaus. No one disputes the U.S. Open fulfilled its mission last year by identifying the best player in McIlroy. It just looked See TROUBLE, Page 3B

OKLAHOMA CITY — Not many know much about the guy who dominated Game1of the NBA Finals other than he’s pretty good. Kevin Durant is a mystery even to some of the players trying to beat him. “It’s one of those things where I respect his game, but I don’t know

him, either. I know probably just as much as you guys know,” Miami’s Dwyane Wade said Wednesday. That’s just the way Durant likes it. He doesn’t seek the spotlight and it seldom comes to Oklahoma looking for him. He rarely makes much news and wouldn’t read it anyway, preferring the quiet life LeBron James gave up any hope of when he went to Miami and promised all those championships at that big welcoming party two summers ago. Durant instead committed to remaining in Oklahoma City that same month, bypassing a big announcement by revealing

on Twitter he had agreed to a contract extension. He may not be able to hide much longer. A few more performances like he had in the opener — See ATTENTION, Page 3B

hey said he didn’t have it. They said he couldn’t cut it. And most painfully, they suggested he should just quit it already. Because try as he might, Joey Logano just couldn’t win a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. So in a season where his ride with Joe Gibbs Racing is up, Logano’s critics started suggesting he should head back to the lower-level Nationwide Series. Instead, he headed straight to the front of the field. Logano won the pole for the Pocono 400, led the most laps in the race and then won the thing at the end with a move bred from both determination and daring. Even his doubters had to be impressed. “I hope,” Logano told a national television audience, “it shuts them all up.” But will it? Only if he continues to win. Because during the last three years, Logano really hasn’t won much support for himself. He was the exciting choice to replace Tony Stewart for the 2009 season when Stewart left the Gibbs garage to form his own team as an owner and driver. The kid taking his old seat in the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota was supposed to be someone who could really drive. In fact, Logano was nicknamed “Sliced Bread,” as in the greatest thing since, by fellow driver Randy LaJoie. Maybe “Wonderbread” would have been more fitting. Driven to the Cup Series In 2007, Logano won the Busch East Series championship. Just 21 days after his 18th birthday, Logano became the youngest driver to win a Nationwide Series race in just his third start on that circuit in 2008. And when Gibbs put him in Stewart’s old Sprint Cup championship car, Logano became the youngest winner in that series’ history when he won at New Hampshire Motor Speedway at the age of 19. But the big hopes he carried into a field of big boys soon became bust. That rain-shortened New Hampshire drive was the last time Logano drove into Victory Lane. Until Sunday at Pocono. “I didn’t stop screaming ’til I got to victory lane,” Logano said. “I worked so hard to do this. To get a victory, it means so much.” It may mean his ride with Gibbs will continue after his contract expires at the end of the summer. It may not. “My hope is to, obviously, stay with what I’ve got,” Logano said. “But you never know.” Do they stick with the kid carrying so much potential, who at the age of 22 now became the youngest Sprint Cup winner in the long, winding history of Pocono Raceway? Or do they cut him loose, and chalk up the feelings of Logano’s unfulfilled promise to the failures of youth? Whichever way the Gibbs team goes with him, Logano spent a whole weekend at Pocono giving his bosses more of a glimpse of what he can be. “I expect to be running out front,” Logano said. “To me, it was no surprise. You’ve got to have that little arrogance, or confidence, as an athlete. You have to believe in yourself a lot, to believe you’re the best race car driver out there.” He was on Sunday. And if he keeps proving that, what looks like his finish line from behind the wheel for Gibbs may only be the start.

when he scored 17 of his 36 pointsinthefourthquarterofthe Thunder’s 105-94 victory — and Durant could take his place as the league’s biggest star. Yet he pays no more attention to praise than he does criticism — unless it comes from within his organization. “I have faith in all those things thatIdodayinanddayout:Coming in, working hard, believing in myself and my teammates, and believing in the system. Whatever happens after that, it happens, as long as I know that I come in and give it my all every single day,” Durant said. “I can’t worry about what other people say or expectations they put on me. It’s just all about how I view myself and how my teammates view me, and we’ll go from there.” Game 2 is tonight, another chance for Durant to build on what’s already one of the league’s strongest resumes in recent years: Three-time scoring champion. MVP of the All-Star game. MVP of the world basketball championship. On the floor, his name belongs with James, Wade, Kobe Bryant, or any of the NBA’s brightest stars. Away from the court, Durant doesn’t seem interested in anything that would force his name into the discussion, with Wade comparing him to San Antonio’s Tim Duncan. “And sometimes it’s where you’re at. If he was in Los Angeles, Chicago, somewhere, it would be a little different,” Wade said. “Being in Oklahoma kind of dims his light a little bit. Not him on the basketball court, but him off the court. There’s not a lot of exciting things going on out here.” Well, except for Durant’s performances. His scoring average and shooting percentage have gone up every round, and he matched his high scoring game of this postseason on Tuesday. He did hear some criticism for being too passive and taking only four shots over the middle two quarters, but he brushes that off as easily as he does defenders. “I don’t want to sound like a jerk or anything, but I really don’t care what people say outside the locker room, outside of this organization, what I need to do or what I didn’t do. I really don’t care,” Durant said. “You know, I’maguythatletsthegamecome to me but is also aggressive at the same time. I know when to take shots, when to make the right play. “People can say this and that. I learn to just tune it out and just play my game.” James and Wade are as much celebritiesasathletes,answering questions about fashion Wednesday while every inquiry to Durant was about basketball. And with more attention on the Miami duo, so is the “noise” that coach Erik Spoelstra says the team is always trying to ignore.

ARMSTRONG Continued from Page 1B

closed a two-year criminal probe in February without bringing any charges. Armstrong has said the investigation took a heavy emotional toll and he was relieved when it ended. But USADA officials insisted they would continue to pursue their own probe into Armstrong and his former teams and doctors, and notified him of the charges in a 15-page letter on Tuesday. Unlike federal prosecutors, USADA isn’t burdened by proving a crime occurred, just that there was use of performance-enhancing drugs. In its letter, USADA said its investigation included evidence dating back to1996. It also included the new charge that Armstrong blood samples taken in 2009 and 2010 are “fully consistent with blood manipulation including EPO use and/or blood transfusions.” Armstrong came out of his first retirement to race in the Tour de France those two years. Armstrong, who was in France while training for a triathlon, issued a statement dismissing the latest allegations “baseless” and “motivated by spite.” Even though he last won the Tour seven years ago, the 40-year-old Arm-

Swoyersville picks up shutout win

WVC game to feature top seniors

The Times Leader staff

NANTICOKE – Joe Pechulis connected for four hits in as many at-bats to lead Swoyersville and also picked up a 4-0 shutout victory over Nanticoke Wednesday in American Legion baseball. Pechulis also scored two runs. On the mound, he struck out six in 6 2⁄3 innings, yielding five hits and no runs. Swoyersville’s Nick Hogan added three hits, two runs and two RBI. Mickey Ferrence supplied a two-hit effort for Nanticoke. Swoyersville

TROUBLE Continued from Page 1B

more like the Greater Hartford Open at times. In a relentless assault on a course softened by rain, McIlroy needed only 26 holes to reach double figures under par and he never let up until he had his name in the record book and an eight-shot win. “We want this event to be a real challenge,” Davis said. “I think looking back, we identified the best player last year. He’s been a wonderful champion. But at the same time, I wouldn’t want to go through every year where we have four days of wet, soft conditions because it doesn’t ... really embellish on what we’re trying to do in terms of identifying a national champion.” That sounds like a polite way of the USGA saying that it’s time for payback, just like in 1974 after Johnny Miller shot 63 to win at Oakmont. Only at Olympic, the USGA didn’t have to do too much. No one has brought Olympic to its knees the four previous times it hosted the U.S. Open, and no one sees that happening this year. Never mind that at 7,170 yards it is among the shortest of U.S. Open courses. Olympic always play big. “What is par, 70?” Masters champion Bubba Watson said. “It’s not really 70. It’s over par. Five-over par at the end of the week, just like at Oakmont (in 2007), probably has a great shot at winning, unless something changes dramatically with the weather or something like that.” The lowest winning score at Olympic in the U.S. Open is 3strong remains a popular — if polarizing — figure, partly because of his charity work for cancer patients. USADA’s letter also said the agency was bringing doping charges against Johan Bruyneel, manager of Armstrong’s winning teams; team doctors Pedro Celaya and Luis Garcia del Moral; team trainer Pepe Marti, and consulting doctor Michele Ferrari. The USADA letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, accuses Armstrong of using and promoting the use of the blood booster EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone, human growth hormone and anti-inflammatory steroids. The letter doesn’t cite specific examples, but says the charges are based on evidence gathered in an investigation of Armstrong’s teams, including interviews with witnesses who aren’t named. Cycling’s governing body, the International Cycling Union, which collected the 2009 and 2010 samples cited in the USADA letter, said it was not involved in the anti-doping group’s investigation. According to USADA’s letter, more than 10 cyclists as well as team employees will testify they either saw Armstrong dope or heard him tell them he used EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone and cortisone from 1996 to 2005.

under 277. The highest is 7-over 287. The course essentially was built on the side of a giant sand dune that leads toward Lake Merced, meaning most fairways are slanted. It’s an uphill walk just crossing the 17th fairway. The fourth hole slopes severely to the right, but the hole is a dogleg to the left to an elevated green. “This sort of sets itself apart because of the severity of the fairways, and the fact that you have to shape it into them,” Lee Westwood said. “I can’t think of any other course that really compares to it. Most places you try and get the fairways pretty flat when they’re doing the design. But here, they seem to prefer the ball to land on one side of the fairway and run to the other.” The U.S. Open gets under way today, and it won’t take long for some buzz to fill the cool, heavy air along the Pacific. Woods and Phil Mickelson, the biggest (and most one-sided) rivalry of their generation, are playing with Watson in the fourth group of the day, starting on the par-4 ninth hole. The afternoon has McIlroy and two Englishman desperate to win their first major — Westwood and Luke Donald, the No. 1 player in the world. Some are curious to see whether Olympic is the stern test it appears to be. The technology boom was just getting under way the last time this major came to Olympic in 1998.

ROSTERS WVC senior all-star game 4:30 p.m., today Wilkes’ Artillery Park

Tiger Woods hits out of a bunker on the second hole during a practice round for the U.S. Open Championship on Wednesday.

their drivers with a turn and a click. One change to the course was par. It’s still at 70, but the opening hole (520 yards) is now a par 4, and the 17th hole (522 yards) is a par 5. That makes the opening six holes a tough way to start the U.S. Open. This is one area, though, where Woods and Mickelson don’t agree. “I think that the first six, if you play them for four straight days even par, you’re going to be picking up just a boat load of shots,” Woods said. “They’re just difficult.” Mickelson also figured that even par or even 1-over par during that stretch was acceptable, but that’s as far as he went. “I think it’s overrated a little bit in difficulty,” he said. “It’s certainly challenging. But the way it’s set up gives you an opportunity to play them.”

Matteo Manassero, the 19year-old Italian, said it was a classic case of a golf course not needing water or other hazards to make it difficult. Except for a wild hook on the 13th, there are no water hazards. And there is only one fairway bunker on the entire course, on the sixth hole. “First time I’ve played a golf course with one bunker in the fairway,” he said. Then smiling as he looked ahead to the British Open next month at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, he added, “And the next major will have probably 300 bunkers.” The tournament ultimately will be decided on the closing holes, which are different for another reason. Starting with the uphill 14th, players could wind up playing a short iron (usually no more than wedge) into the green on the last five holes. It’s not a case of hanging for par. It’s trying to make birdies.

REVIEW Continued from Page 1B

Saturday night thought Pacquiao had easily defended his welterweight title against Bradley. The first surprise came when ring announcer Michael Buffer announced that there was a split decision, and the biggest surprise came in the reading of the scores. Jerry Roth had it 115-113 for Pacquiao, while judges Duane Ford and C.J. Ross had it for Bradley by the same score. The Associated Press scored the fight 117-111 for Pacquiao. “The public saw the fight and they’re outraged, and we need clarity here,” Arum told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “We need those responsible to investigate, to see what happened, how the judges could be so off. “Was there any funny business going on? Or no funny business? Did they have a conversation with each other?” Arum asked. “We need to get clarity. The public is demanding it.” Arum’s powerful promotional company, Top Rank, has staged thousands of fights over more than four decades, including some of the most significant in the history of the sport.

The Wyoming Valley Conference baseball senior all-star game will be held for the second straight year at 4:30 p.m. today at Wilkes University. Admission will be $3 for adults and $2 for children with all proceeds going to benefit the GOALS Foundation in support of local youth sports. WVC coaches selected the rosters last week, with the players being split into East and West squads. Gino Cara (Hazleton Area), Chris Ritsick (Holy Redeemer) and Matt Skrepenak (Meyers) will coach the East team while John Milius (Wyoming Valley West) and Lou DiPasquale (Northwest) will head up the West. The game will close out the 2012 WVC baseball season that saw Valley West and Redeemer capture District 2 titles and advance to the state quarterfinals in Class 4A and 2A, respectively.

Timothy Bradley left, lands a punch against Manny Pacquiao in their WBO world welterweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas.

He said that the scoring of Saturday night’s fight was among the worst he’s ever seen. “It puts boxing in a very horrible light,” he said. “I’m looking for the sport to do damage control, and the only way it does damage control is if you do a full and complete investigation.” Arum submitted a formal request to the Nevada Attorney General’s office on Monday asking for an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the fight. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the senior senator from Nevada, also has asked for

an investigation. Jennifer Lopez, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Attorney General’s office, said in an email to the AP that Arum’s complaint is currently under review. “We are treating the complaint like any other complaint our office receives,” Lopez said. “We do not confirm or deny if we have an ongoing criminal investigation.” The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s executive director, Keith Kizer, said this week that he has no plans to review the fight, even though he acknowl-

edged having Pacquiao ahead. Commission chairman Skip Avansino told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he was content with the scoring, while Ford defended his scorecard in an interview with the newspaper. “I thought Bradley gave Pacquiao a boxing lesson,” Ford said. “I thought a lot of the rounds were close. Pacquiao missed a lot of punches and I thought he was throwing wildly.” Arum believes the decision — along with the Nevada commission’s reluctance to conduct its own investigation — could provide the impetus for a federal commission to provide oversight for the sport, which has long battled the perception that it is rife with corruption. “If the commission here in Nevada will be in intransigent, and won’t cooperate, we have to have a federal commission,” Arum said. “We have to examine who these are on the commission, how they got there, how they operate. Something is broke.” Stats compiled by Compubox showed Pacquiao landing 253 punches to 159 for Bradley, and having a 190-108 edge in power punches. Pacquiao landed at 38.5 percent to 27.7 percent for Bradley.

The Yankees’ Curtis Granderson, right, is congratulated by Derek Jeter after hitting a two-run home run on Wednesday.

Yanks torch Atlanta in march to sweep ATLANTA — Curtis Granderson hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning, and the streaking New York Yankees completed their second straight three-game sweep with a win over Atlanta. Hiroki Kuroda (6-6) gave up two runs in six innings and set a season high with eight strikeouts. He stranded runners in scoring position in the second, third and fourth innings before giving up Brian McCann’s two-run shot in the fifth. Granderson answered an inning later with his 19th homer. Alex Rodriguez had an RBI single in the first inning for the Yankees, who have surged into first place in the AL East with sweeps of the Mets and Braves. Rafael Soriano gave up a single to Chipper Jones with two outs in the ninth before capping his 11th save by getting Jason Heyward to hit a popup to second base. Phillies 9, Twins 8

MINNEAPOLIS — Jim Thome drove in four runs against his former team, including a long homer to pad Philadelphia’s lead, and the Phillies hung on for a 9-8 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night. John Mayberry also had four RBIs, including a three-run home run in the first inning to give Cole Hamels (9-3) a sixrun lead he barely held. Jonathan Papelbon got the last four outs for his 17th save in as many attempts. Hunter Pence and Carlos Ruiz both had three hits and scored two runs. Nationals 6, Blue Jays 2

TORONTO — Stephen Strasburg won his fifth straight start, Tyler Moore hit the first two home runs of his career and the Washington Nationals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2 Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep. Ian Desmond also connected as Washington completed the first undefeated six-game road trip since the franchise relocated from Montreal. The NL East-leading Nationals, who also swept Boston, outscored the Red Sox and Blue Jays 31-16. Recalled from Triple-A Syracuse last week, Moore started in place of Adam LaRoche, who was out after fouling a ball off his right foot on Tuesday. Orioles 7, Pirates 1

BALTIMORE — Substitute starter Jake Arrieta tied a career high with nine strikeouts over seven innings, Wilson Betemit had a season-high three hits and drove in three runs, and Baltimore beat Pittsburgh for its fourth straight victory. Chris Davis hit a broken-bat homer and had three RBIs for the Orioles, whose four-game home winning streak is a season high. Baltimore clinched its third successive series win. Reds 5, Indians 3

driving in three runs as Cincinnati topped Cleveland. Phillips’ two-run shot in the seventh inning made it 58 straight games with at least one homer at Great American Ball Park since July 29, the longest active streak in the majors. Mets 9, Rays 1

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — R.A. Dickey allowed only an infield single during his second career one-hitter and broke the New York Mets’ record for consecutive scoreless innings in a victory over Tampa Bay. Dickey (10-1) became the first 10-game winner in the major leagues and ran his career-best shutout streak to 32 2-3 innings before yielding an unearned run in the ninth. That topped the previous club mark of 31 2-3 scoreless innings set by Jerry Koosman in 1973. Red Sox 10, Marlins 2

MIAMI — Felix Doubront allowed three hits while pitching a career-high seven innings, and Boston beat reeling Miami. Doubront (7-3), coming off the worst start of his career, retired 16 in a row and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. He struck out nine and allowed two runs. The left-hander hadn’t pitched more than 6 1-3 innings in his 15 previous career starts. Rangers 1, Diamondbacks 0

ARLINGTON, Texas — Craig Gentry hit a two-out RBI single in the eighth inning, and Matt Harrison combined with two relievers on a six-hitter as Texas beat Arizona. Mike Napoli drew a leadoff walk in the eighth off rookie left-hander Wade Miley (7-3) before a sacrifice bunt by Yorvit Torrealba. After pinch-hitter Nelson Cruz struck out, Gentry, the No. 9 batter hitting .340, hit a hard one-hopper over the glove of third baseman Ryan Roberts into left field. Cardinals 1, White Sox 0

ST. LOUIS — Lance Lynn struck out a career-high 12 to stay tied for the major league lead in wins and Carlos Beltran hit his NL-best 19th home run Wednesday night, sending the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory over the White Sox that ended Chicago’s eight-game road winning streak. Beltran homered in the third inning off Jake Peavy (6-2) and had three of the four hits for the Cardinals, who have scored only seven runs in the last five games and totaled a single run for the third straight game. Tigers 8, Cubs 4

CHICAGO — Jhonny Peralta had three hits and two RBIs one night after he made two costly throwing errors, and the Detroit Tigers rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs 8-4 on Wednesday. Brennan Boesch had four hits, including a solo homer, and made a diving catch in right field as the Tigers improved to 8-1 in their last nine games against the Cubs.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L June 14 1952 — Warren Spahn of the Boston Braves struck out 18 Cubs in a 3-1, 15-inning loss to Chicago. Spahn also homered. 1963 — Duke Snider hit his 400th career home run to highlight a 10-3 triumph by the New York Mets over the Cincinnati Reds at Crosley Field. 1965 — Jim Maloney struck out 18 and no-hit the New York Mets for 10 innings, but Johnny Lewis’ leadoff home run in the 11th inning gave the Mets a 1-0 win. 1969 — Reggie Jackson knocked in 10 runs with two homers, a double and two singles in Oakland’s 21-7 win over the Red Sox in Boston. In the eighth, he drove in three runs with a single when he easily could have made second base. 1974 — Nolan Ryan struck out 19 batters in 12 innings to give the California Angels a 4-3 win over the Boston Red Sox in 15 innings. Cecil Cooper of the Red Sox struck out six times. 1978 — Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds had two hits in a 3-1 triumph over the Chicago Cubs to start his 44-game hitting streak. 1995 — Mike Benjamin went 6-for-7, setting a major league record with 14 hits in three games, and drove in the winning run in the 13th inning as the San Francisco Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3. 2002 — Aaron Boone hit a pair of homers — one to tie the game in the ninth inning and one to win it in the 11th — off Pittsburgh closer Mike Williams as Cincinnati beat the Pirates 4-3. 2002 — With all 14 interleague games — and one NL game — taking place in National League parks, the DH was not employed anywhere throughout Major League Baseball. 2005 — Seattle’s Ichiro Suzuki became the third player since 1900 to reach 1,000 hits in fewer than 700 games when he singled in the bottom of the first inning in Seattle’s 3-1 win over Philadelphia. Suzuki’s 1,000th hit came in his 696th game. Chuck Klein reached the mark in 1933 in 683 games, and Lloyd Waner reached it in 1932 in 686 games. 2005 — Chris Carpenter pitched a one-hitter and struck out 10 to lead St. Louis in a 7-0 win over Toronto. 2007 — Craig Monroe tied the major league record for strike outs in a nine inning game when he whiffed five times in Detroit’s 6-5 loss to Milwaukee.

CLEMENS TRIAL

NHL

Clemens jury asks to view records

Free agency looming big for Devils

By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON — Jurors asked for a master list of exhibits — a list that extends well into triple digits — and lawyers laughed about a juror who appeared to doze off during closing arguments as deliberations continued Wednesday in the perjury trial of Roger Clemens. The eight women and four men met for about 3 1⁄2 hours in the afternoon, an abbreviated day because one of them had a scheduling conflict. They then recessed until Monday, taking a four-day break while U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton travels to New Orleans for a speaking engagement — a trip that didn’t appear to be an issue when the trial began April 16. While the jury caucused in a separate room, the judge summoned the lawyers to his courtroom for a brief hearing to address several juror-related issues, including the request for the list of exhibits. Clemens lawyer Rusty Hardin said the defense had its list handy, but prosecutor Steven Durham said the government would need about an hour to produce its list because some items were not introduced during the trial. It was yet another indication of the scope of the proceedings, and why a quick verdict seemed unlikely. The exhibits — which include documents, video and audio excerpts, photographs and various pieces of physical evidence — used up numbers that ran well past 100 and nearly every letter of the alphabet. The various medical waste saved in a FedEx box by Clemens’ chief accuser Brian McNamee went from 52A to 52X. Clemens is charged with perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress. The charges center on his assertion — made at both a hearing and a sworn deposition in 2008 — that he never used steroids and human growth hormone during his stellar baseball career. The obstruction count includes 13 alleged untruths, part of a complex verdict sheet given to the jurors when they held their first 15 minutes of deliberations late Tuesday afternoon. Two jurors were dismissed for sleeping during the trial, and the judge said Wednesday that Hardin noticed another juror appeared to drift off during the lawyer’s closing argument the day before.

By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

NEWARK, N.J. — With free agency looming in less than three weeks, New Jersey Devils captain Zach Parise has crossed the rival Rangers off his list of potential future employers. Meeting with the media for the first time since New Jersey lost the Stanley Cup in six games to the Los Angeles Kings two days ago, the 27-year-old Parise reiterated that he would like to continue playing for the Devils and would even consider signing before free agency starts on July with the right deal. When asked if he’d play for the Rangers, a team New Jersey defeated in the postseason, he was short and simple: “No.” “Don’t try to get a headline out of this,” Parise quipped Wednesday as the Devils cleaned out their lockers at the Prudential Center. Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said resigning Parise, who earned in excess of $5 million last season,

would be a priority for the Eastern Conference champions. Lamoriello also said it would be up to goaltender Martin Brodeur to decide whether he wants to return next season. If the 40-yearold goaltender is up for a19th season, and he has indicated he is, the team will have a new contract for him. Lamoriello will be busy in the offseason on the free-agent market. In addition to Parise and Brodeur, defensemen Bryce Salvador, Peter Harrold and Mark Fayne (restricted), backup goaltender Johan Hedberg and forwards Petr Sykora, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Steve Bernier, Stephen Gionta and Ryan Carter all need contracts. Parise, who was called the heart of the Devils by coach Peter DeBoer, is the most important. Coming off a major knee injury that limited him to 13 games in 2010-11, he scored 31 goals in the regular season and added eight more in the postseason. He also was a penalty killer and relentless two-way player. Parise, who refused to discuss his upcoming free agency in the regular season, does not have a timetable for getting a new deal. He also did not believe that his

agent, Wade Arnott, and Lamoriello had contract talks during the season. Lamoriello refused to comment on talks with Parise. Arnott did not immediately answer an email from The Associated Press seeking comment on Parise’s free agency. “We’re going to keep all that stuff between Lou and I, as we always have,” Parise said. “I’ve said all along I love playing here. I’ve always appreciated everything that this organization has done for me. My feelings have never changed.” This is Parise’s first go-around with free agency and he said he intends to listen to his agents and try to enjoy it. However, he added he will make the final decision and it all won’t come down to money. It also will depend on being with a winner and getting along with a new coach and teammates if that is in the cards. Parise often made comments during the season — as most of his teammates did — about how enjoyable an experience it was to work for DeBoer, who just finished his first season in New JerAP PHOTO sey. Certainly that will play into the mix, as will the Devils’ run to Zach Parise is one of several New Jersey Devils who will become the Stanley Cup finals. free agents. He scored 31 goals this season.

LAST DAY

Pryor feels different after rookie season

CHAIN SALE BUY 1 GET 1 FREE!!

By JOSH DUBOW AP Sports Writer

ALAMEDA, Calif. — Terrelle Pryor’s rookie year in the NFL amounted to a false start. The former Ohio State star quarterback entered the league late through the supplemental draft, served a five-game suspension for infractions from college and then got on the field for only one aborted play for the Oakland Raiders last season. That’s why this offseason has been so crucial for Pryor, who is finally getting the professional coaching and practice time he sorely missed during his rookie year. “I didn’t know anything last year, nothing at all,” Pryor said. “I knew some of the stuff going into games and stuff like that but not like starting from Day 1 here right now when the new coaches came in. On the other hand, I came in last year at the end of camp and everything was already put in. I couldn’t ask the coach, the offensive coordinator. We didn’t even have a quarterbacks coach so I couldn’t even learn anything from that standpoint.” Pryor got very little out of a rookie season that was doomed from the start. He didn’t decide to leave Ohio State until after the NFL draft following an investigation into the team’s

memorabilia-for-cash scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job. Commissioner Roger Goodell allowed Pryor into the supplemental draft but ruled he must serve the five-game suspension he would have faced in college. The Raiders used a third-round pick on Aug. 22 to select Pryor and signed him three days later, making him the final player every drafted by late owner Al Davis. Pryor said Davis would call him a couple of times a week before his death last October, reminding Pryor that he believed in him.

EUROPEAN SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Germany tops the Netherlands

BCS moves closer to playoff format

The Associated Press

KHARKIV, Ukraine — Mario Gomez scored two first-half goals Wednesday to give Germany a 2-1 win over the Netherlands in one of the most anticipated showdowns of the European Championship. Robin van Persie pulled one back for the Netherlands in the second half, but the defeat left the 2010 World Cup runner-up on the brink of elimination. Germany has six points from two wins, but is still not sure of advancing from Group B, where three teams could end up with six points. Earlier, Portugal beat Denmark 3-2. The Netherlands, along with Germany considered one of the favorites but drawn into a tough group, now has lost both of its group games and needs to beat Portugal to have a hope. Germany will need only a draw against Denmark to win the group. Gomez put Germany ahead in the 24th minute after collecting a pass from Bastian Schweinsteiger at the edge of the penalty area and turning between two Dutch defenders, who were betting on an offside call. But Gregory van der Wiel failed to move forward quickly enough and Gomez had a simple task in slotting past Maarten Stekelenburg. Stekelenburg made a stunning reflex save to stop Holger Badstuber’s header from a free kick cross from Mesut Oezil from point-blank range in the 37th, but one minute later he was beaten again. Gomez and Schweinsteiger outplayed the Dutch defense with two simple moves. Gomez passed to the ball to Schweinsteiger, who immediately played it into space for Gomez and the striker slotted inside the far

post. Gomez went off in the 72nd minute and was replaced by Miroslav Klose — but one minute later Van Persie finally found the target for the Dutch, driving home from the edge of the box in the 73rd. Portugal 3, Denmark 2 LVIV, Ukraine — Underperforming Portugal finally got a win. Underperforming Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t much help. After a miserable run of four games without a victory and only one goal scored, the Portuguese came through with an 87th-minute goal from substitute Silvestre Varela to beat Denmark 3-2 in Group B of the European Championship. “Those of us who don’t play from the start must be ready to join in at any time and deliver

what the manager wants,” said Varela, who replaced Raul Meireles in the 84th. “We should keep on working like this to achieve our aims.” All four teams in Group B can still advance to the quarterfinals. After Germany beat the Netherlands 2-1 in the late match, the three-time champions lead the group with six points while both Portugal and Denmark have three. Varela scored the winner three minutes from the end, spinning on the ball and shooting from short range. It was Varela’s first international goal in four appearances. But the winning strike came late, and after several missed opportunities from Ronaldo. “We should have killed the game off earlier,” Portugal coach Paulo Bento said. “We had enough chances.”

Portugal also got first-half goals from Pepe and Helder Postiga at the Lviv Arena, but the Danes replied with a pair of goals from Nicklas Bendtner. The Denmark striker found the target just before halftime and then made it 2-2 in the 80th. “To lose in the last five minutes is very tough for us to take,” Bendtner said. “We felt that one point at that stage was a very good result for us.” Ronaldo is Portugal’s captain and easily its best player. And at Euro 2012, the team is looking to him to reproduce the kind of goal-rich form he showed at Real Madrid last season when he scored 60 goals. But Ronaldo, facing a compact Danish defense that denied the Netherlands a goal in their opening win, didn’t even take a shot until the 18th minute.

CHICAGO — The conference commissioners who have been working on a four-team playoff to determine college football’s national champion plan to present the BCS presidential oversight committee multiple formats from which to choose. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said the university presidents will “have options — plural” to consider when they meet in two weeks. Scott spoke before leaving Wednesday’s meeting with conference commissioners and Notre Dame’s athletic director. What those options are is not clear. This is. “Status quo is not on the table,” BCS executive director Bill Hancock said. The commissioners have since January been working on ways to hold a four-team major college football playoff, starting in the 2014 season. Among the details that need to be worked out are when and where to play the games, how to incorporate the bowls, and how to select the four teams. The BCS commissioners and Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick released a statement after the meeting saying they are “approaching consensus on many issues and we recognize there are also several issues that require additional conversations at both the commissioner and university president levels. “We are determined to build

upon our success and create a structure that further grows the sport while protecting the regular season. We also value the bowl tradition and recognize the many benefits it brings to student-athletes. We have more work to do and more discussions to have with our presidents who are the parties that will make the final decision about the future structure of college football’s postseason.” The commissioners are scheduled to meet again next week in Chicago and the presidential oversight committee is set to meet June 26 in Washington. Scott would not say if the socalled “plus-one,” which sets the No. 1 vs. No. 2 title game after the bowls have been played instead of before, is still on the table — as he has suggested previously. “I think there’s a focus on a four-team playoff and trying to find a consensus as to the best way that could work, that our conferences can be comfortable with, that our presidents can consider,” Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford said. “But I don’t think you cut off all conversation of the (other) models that can be in play. I think the presidents certainly have every right and opportunity to talk about what they need to talk about.” The commissioners last met in Florida in April. “The reality is that I felt that we made progress on several issues — several difficult issues — and that we need to go back to our leagues and talk about that, go back to our presidents and talk about that,” Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive said.

Ex-bankers form financial group

B R I E F

Fliers feel less satisfied

Fliers were less satisfied with airlines in 2012, following two years of consecutive improvement, according to a national consumer study. On a 1,000-point scale, passenger satisfaction fell 2 points to an average of 681, the J.D. Power and Associates survey revealed Wednesday. The survey measured leisure and business travelers’ satisfaction based on seven factors: cost and fees; in-flight services; boarding, deplaning and baggage handling; flight crew; aircraft; check-in and reservation. Low-cost carriers scored higher than traditional airlines in the poll.

WILKES-BARRE – Three former M&T Bank employees have formed a financial management group with offices on Public Square. “We all felt we wanted to have a greater focus on the local market,” said Terry Casey, one of the partners in Chancellor Financial Group with C. Catherine Mihalick Esq. and Stacey A. Wyandt. “The three of us have a strong commitment to the area and wanted to continue the personalized service to our cliCasey ents.” The office, at Suite 400 of the Bicentennial Building at 15 Public Square, opened in March. “It’s working out great,” Casey, president of the firm, said. “We’re exceeding all of our expectations.” Casey, Mihalick and Wyandt have a combined 61 years of expeMihalick rience in the financial and investment fields. They have formed a relationship with Pennsylvania Trust Co., Philadelphia, and Fidelity Investments, to provide financial products and services. “With the change in focus of large investment services providers away from our market, we see a Wyandt need in the region to offer personalized investment and asset management services,” said Casey, who spent the past 13 years in the investment department of M&T Bank.A resident of Dallas, Casey has more than 31 years experience in the financial services industry. Mihalick, of Shavertown, is vice president, administrative and compliance officer. Previously, she was vice president and team leader for northern Pennsylvania of the M&T Investment Group and oversaw the administration of trust, estate and investment management accounts for the region. As chief investment officer, Wyandt, of Dallas, serves as portfolio manager and is responsible for management of all investment portfolios. He has 20 years of trust and investment management experience at M&T and Mellon Bank.

Oil price falls below $83

Oil prices fell Wednesday after the government reported slower retail sales and a drop in spending at the pump. Benchmark crude lost 70 cents to finish at $82.62 per barrel. Brent crude, which is used to price international oil and to make gasoline in much of the U.S., fell a penny to end at $97.13. The Commerce Department said retail spending slipped 0.2 percent in May, following an identical decline in April.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon prepares to testify before the Senate Banking Committee on Wednesday about how his company recently lost more than $2 billion on risky trades.

Dimon: Clawbacks coming

‘.pizza’ among proposals

By MARCY GORDON AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON — JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon told Congress on Wednesday that senior bank executives responsible for a $2 billion trading loss will probably have some of their pay taken back by the company. “It’s likely that there will be clawbacks,” Dimon told the Senate Banking Committee. Dimon, under close questioning about his own role in setting up the investment division responsible for the mess, declared: “We made a mistake. I’m absolutely responsible. The buck stops with me.” The trading loss, disclosed May 10, has raised concerns that the big-

Proposals for Internet addresses ending in “.pizza,” “.space” and “.auto” are among the nearly 2,000 submitted as part of the largest expansion in the online address system. Apple Inc., Sony Corp. and American Express Co. are among companies that are seeking names with their brands. Google Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. sought dozens of names, including “.app,” and “.play.” The wine company Gallo Vineyards Inc. wants “.barefoot.” The proposals now go through a review process that could take months or years.

China perceived as biggest

For the first time, people responding to a global survey are more likely to view China and not the United States as the world’s leading economic power. The results of the Pew Research Center survey do not reflect reality: America’s economy remains well ahead of its closest rival. But it does highlight China’s steadily rising public image amid rapid growth, as well as the erosion of the United States’ status as the global superpower, especially after the 2008 financial crisis left it struggling with recession and high unemployment.

gest banks still pose risks to the U.S. financial system, less than four years after the financial crisis in the fall of 2008. Dimon’s reputation for cost-cutting and perceived mastery of risk, particularly during the crisis, earned him respect in Washington. JPMorgan Chase weathered the crisis with relatively little damage. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., told Dimon sympathetically that Congress manages to lose at least $2 billion every day. Referring to the bank, he said: “You appear to be in much better fiscal shape than we are as a country.” Far from crouching, Dimon struck a posture as something of a public advocate as the hearing end-

He urged Congress to act quickly to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff at the end of this year, when billions of dollars in tax cuts will expire and billions more in automatic government spending cuts will take effect. Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey challenged Dimon on his strenuous opposition to stricter financial regulation and noted that JPMorgan received a $20 billion taxpayer bailout loan at the depths of the 2008 crisis.

Sonja is not typical of all Swedes, but humans aren’t wired to take that into consideration while feeling righteous outrage at a derogatory comment. While it’s likely there will be no lasting fallout from this escapade, it’s generated international headlines, and it seems to me that it can only be viewed as bad publicity, stemming from a bad idea.

There should be enough of a breeze out there today to unfurl the flag, and once again the low humidity will make for a comfortably warm afternoon. Indeed it will be warmer than on Wednesday and Friday will be about as warm as today. The atmosphere has now settled into a high amplitude blocking pattern which will allow our weather to remain dry into and through the coming weekend. Large cumulus clouds will form each afernoon to offer just a bit of shade now and then, and temperatures will trend only slightly upward each day. It’s possible that our next chance for rain will hold off until after Tuesday. - Tom Clark

f the pavilion, numerous sports fields and newer playground equipment aren’t enough to get someone to the Plains Township Municipal Park, the view sure is. “Sometimes I sit here and just zone out while looking at it,” Wilkes-Barre resident

Anne Kohler, 38, said as she took in the sight of the neighborhood below, surrounded by lush green foliage. “I let the kids run around, and I sit here and relax. It’s nice.”

The Clark Lane park is one of five in the township that recently underwent an upgrade. This was the largest, coming in at about $100,000, Township Commissioner Robert Sax said. The fenced-in portion of the park is surrounded by baseball and soccer fields, as well as the Plains Lion Pavilion, which can be rented out for events. There’s one large structure of slides and climbing apparatuses for older children, while a smaller playground for younger children is to the side. A colorful

gazebo and another, smaller pavilion sit inside the playground. The park, with special swings and accessible restrooms, is one of just a handful of special-needs playgrounds in the area. Brandon Gebenus and Michael Novak, both 10 and of Wilkes-Barre, favor the zipline in the play area for older children. They take turns hopping onto the platSee MAKEOVER, Page 2C

Daunting problems, undaunted parents By TOM AVRIL The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELPHIA — Reduced to bare numbers, the story of Katie seems impossible. Age: 9 ½ years. Height: 29 inches. Weight: Less than 11 pounds. Yet that is how she was, lying in a crib in a Bulgarian orphanage, when Susanna Musser showed up to become her mom. The little girl was alive, more or less. Her legs looked thin as broomsticks. Her skin was colorless, her brown eyes empty. She looked as if she might break. Thousands of miles away, physicians at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia struggled to understand. Katie had Down syndrome, but that would not explain why, at the age most children enter fourth grade, she weighed little more than a baby. The doctors eventually agreed with

Susanna and her husband, Joe, that this was a case of horrific neglect — that Katie, along with more than a dozen other disabled children at the orphanage, was simply a victim of long-term starvation. What Katie needed, in careful doses, was healthy food. Once she left the orphanage for her trip back to Pennsylvania, however, the hollow-faced child had other ideas. Finally in the arms of parents who had waited months to hold her fragile body, Katie suddenly refused to eat. It began, as so much else does these days, with the Internet. Joe and Susanna Musser had a large, happy bunch of kids in their cozy, grayshingled house, at the end of a gravel driveway in Lancaster County, Pa. Joe, a former pastor, earned a living as a carpenter, while Susanna taught their nine children at home. Then came Verity. The Mussers’ 10th

child, whose name means truth, was born with Down syndrome. Though they knew almost nothing about children with disabilities, they saw her as a blessing from God. So when Susanna started a blog, she named it “The Blessing of Verity,” and it quickly drew an avid group of followers. One of them emailed Susanna to ask about adopting children with Down syndrome, so Susanna did some research. She came across a “Today” show video from 2007, with wrenching images of emaciated children, confined to cribs in a Serbian mental institution. Some, like Verity, had Down syndrome. Devout Christians, Susanna and Joe couldn’t imagine that someone like their daughter would be discarded that way. They looked at each other and realized that they, too, wanted to adopt.

Continued from Page 1C

A whole new proposition The world of international adoption is changing. The number of foreign-born children adopted by U.S. families dropped to 9,300 last year, down from 23,000 in 2004. Some of the decline came after allegations of child-trafficking, or because officials in other countries felt that children were better off in their native lands. No matter the country, certain children have always been available to a family that wants them — those with special needs. Exact numbers are unavailable, but now, most children adopted from other countries either have some sort of disability or are older children that have suffered psychological neglect, said Adam Pertman, executive director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute in New York. That’s where programs such as the one at Children’s Hospital come in. Doctors review the health records of foreign children awaiting adoption, to prepare parents for what might lie ahead. The records can be scanty, inaccurate or both. But the doctors have an idea of what to expect, depending on the country: parasites, fetal alcohol syndrome, missed vaccinations. Many of the problems are minor by U.S. standards. Yet for kids with severe needs, program medical director Susan Friedman knows it can be a lot to handle. When Susanna and Joe went to the hospital last year, their minds already were made up. The girl they had chosen to adopt lived in an orphanage in Pleven, northern Bulgaria. The couple had found Katie’s picture on an adoption-agency website and knew at once. “It was like paging through a yearbook full of faces of strangers and suddenly coming across the face of my own child,” Susanna said later. Friedman warned them that Katie’s medical problems were likely to be daunting. She had

the orphanage was that the children were not malnourished, that they were unable to gain weight because of their disabilities. Susanna and her attorney felt otherwise. The children were given nothing to eat but a thin, whitish liquid in a bottle, they said. Susanna thinks it was watereddown yogurt, mixed with a broth or fruit puree; Vladimirova said it seemed like flour and water. The attorney, who had been handling special-needs adoptions since 1996, had never seen anything like it. She and Susanna were determined to do something. After months of effort, they prompted government officials to remove the orphanage director and launch investigations. Some readers of Susanna’s blog would start the process of adopting more children from Katie’s floor, while others donated money for their medical care.

I’m a mother. I’m just saving my child’s life like any mother would.” Susanna says there is nothing crazy or extraordinary about the whole thing, that it just requires love, hard work and a bit of help. And there has been help. The Mussers are not well-off and have no health insurance, but they belong to Samaritan Ministries International, a Christian healthcare cost-sharing program, whose members would cover Katie’s medical bills. Readers of the blog, meanwhile, prayed for them and donated money to cover most of the roughly $28,000 in adoption costs.

he took samples of her blood back to the hospital for tests, giving the results to Friedman by Skype. After the first leg of the journey home, a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, Adam called Friedman at 3 a.m. Philadelphia time, warning that Katie’s oxygen levels had dropped somewhat. An anxious Friedman got to the Philadelphia airport 90 minutes early, ready to take Katie to intensive care. “I really had no idea whether she was going to arrive alive,” the physician said. When Susanna, Joe, and Adam finally walked off the plane with their frail travel companion, Katie was indeed alive. She was home. A welcoming place At the house in Lancaster County, in the town of New Providence, everyone pitches in, from 18-year-old Joseph to 3-year-old Stephen. The kids handle breakfast, lunch, laundry, and yard work. And they dote on Katie. By any measure, Katie seems like a different child. Her weight has nearly tripled, to 27 pounds, and she is 34 inches tall. The median for a girl with Down syndrome at that age is about 66 pounds and 47 inches. The years in the orphanage were devastating for her development, on top of the delays associated with Down syndrome. She suffered from anemia, scurvy, and compression fractures of the spine. Her metabolism had shifted into ultralow gear, Friedman said. “It defies understanding how she could’ve survived for nine years like this,” the doctor said, “but she did.” “If we would write down all the issues that Katie has on a piece of paper, and you didn’t see Katie, didn’t see her face, just read her list of diagnoses, it would look scary on paper,” Susanna said. “But that’s not Katie.”

I like to go on it over and over again.” Kuyler, 3, and Christian Kuhns, 5, prefer more relaxing play. The boys sit side by side on a set of swings as their grandparents push them. “They did a really great job with this park,” Carl Kuhns said. “You’ve got to watch out, too, because it gets pretty busy.

While she might like playing, her grandmother Nancy, of Plains Township, enjoys the peace of mind. “There’s never really a lot going on here; it’s safe and quiet,” she said. “Even if it’s busy I don’t have to worry about her wandering or getting lost.”

Volunteering would help fill widowed father-in-law’s social calendar Dear Abby: “Torn in Texas” (April 13) wrote that her widowed father-in-law visits them every weekend, leaving no time for her family to have a weekend just for themselves. May I suggest that “Torn” contact the Office on Aging nearest to “Pop” and find out what programs are available for seniors. Perhaps he could volunteer. It appears that Pop has a lot of life left in him, and it’s a shame that he spends so much of it alone. If he could become involved in some activities during the week, they might overflow into his weekends, keep him busy and productive, and alleviate his family’s guilt. If you only reduce

DEAR ABBY ADVICE the number of times he visits each month, he will be alone that much more and won’t admit he is lonely. As is often the case, I’ll bet Pop’s late wife made all their social plans. I recommend that Torn or her husband go WITH Pop to a program the first time. It would also be helpful to talk to the director and explain the circumstances. The father-in-law may be resistant at first because it’s difficult to walk into a new place cold turkey. But he will be warmly welcomed and may look forward to the next time. — Experienced With Seniors

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Experienced With Seniors: Your letter reflects the opinion of many other readers. Most agreed that Pop needs to get out more, and Torn should appreciate the time she and her family spends with Pop, because at 87 he won’t be around forever. Read on: Dear Abby: While I sympathize with Torn, she needs to consider that her father-in-law is 87 and has many more years behind him than ahead of him. Any time spent with him should be considered a blessing. At his age, he may not be able to prepare food for himself, so time at his son’s home may be his only opportunity for a decent meal. My advice to Torn is to stop seeing Pop as a visitor and regard him as

CRYPTOQUOTE

family. Include him in your family’s life and plans and build memories while you can. Remember, you will be setting an example for your own children. How you treat your fatherin-law is how they will believe the elderly should be treated, and one day that will be you. — Irene in Elida, Ohio Dear Abby: Torn should be thankful her father-in-law is in good enough health to visit and be part of the family. If she needs a weekend alone, think about having him up during the week. Perhaps her teenagers have activities during the week that he would enjoy. Your family is the most important thing to Pop, and by including him you are contributing to

his quality of life and well-being. — Aching in Arizona Abby shares more than 100 of her favorite recipes in two booklets: “Abby’s Favorite Recipes” and “More Favorite Recipes by Dear Abby.” Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Shipping and handling are included in the price.) To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a gleam in your eye as you set your heart on a fresh adventure. People connect with you. In fact, before this day is through, you will have brought more than one person out of a funk. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). How fast things can change! By afternoon, you’ll know why the morning’s plan wasn’t comprehensive enough. A new attack on the problems of the day will yield results by bedtime. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Make yourself comfortable in your own lifestyle. This won’t require money so much as organizational skills and the ability to set some limits, especially with your nearest and dearest. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like companionship, but you also realize that life can be prosperous and great without it, too. Being versatile and not the least bit needy makes you the ideal partner. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your talent for self-reflection will be highlighted, as will your ability to assess your relationships clearly. When it’s not working, it’s nobody’s fault. You’ll take on the responsibility to fix it yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Life is one big wonderful journey, and you don’t feel wed to the road map. You don’t even feel wed to the road itself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One of your more discerning moods takes hold, and you wonder why you should accept what’s given when you clearly can negotiate or charm your way into better options.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In addition to the family you were born into, you have created and maintained a family of friends. You’ll enjoy the fact that you can choose the cast of characters that accompanies you in your personal story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s no end to what fascinates you. You’re enthralled with human history, nature, children, love, sunshine, dew, gravity ... The hard part is quieting your mind at the end of the day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your relationship with extended family will influence your day. If you’re married, this may have to do with your in-laws. You’ll pave the way for peaceful future interactions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sameness leads to staleness. It takes more effort to mix things up, but keep striving for variety. It allows you to better enjoy the things that give you pleasure. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are creative at your core, though it doesn’t always present itself in the way some people think creativity would. Artistic talent is only one small sector of the broad spectrum of your gifts. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 14). You don’t need symbols of success in order to feel good about yourself, but you’ll still enjoy the signs that you are growing rich and powerful. The next six weeks bring many such signs. An educational pursuit will connect you with new friends in August. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 4, 31 and 29.
