Accusers talk of horrors, mixed emotions By MARK SCOLFORO and GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press

BELLEFONTE — The prosecution’s case in Jerry Sandusky’s sex abuse trial neared its conclusion on Thursday after just four days of testimony, with three more accusers taking the witness stand, including a young man who said the former Penn State assistant football coach raped him as a teen guest in Sandusky’s home. The eighth accuser to testify told jurors the abuse began with fondling and forced oral sex and led to several instances of rape in the basement of Sandusky’s Centre County home, where he spent more than 100 nights and

He said he figured the basement must be soundproof. “He got real aggressive and just forced me into it,” said the young man, now 18 and a recent high school graduate. “And I just went with it — there was no fighting against it.” He said under cross-examination by Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola that the attacks sometimes left him bleeding but that See SANDUSKY, Page 14A

The men spent hours on the witness stand, describing in often graphic detail the sexual abuse they allegedly endured from Jerry Sandusky.

As the prosecution prepares to rest its case, the alleged victims face a new challenge: the psychological aftermath of

ON THE NET Board wants to meet with county manager on his idea to Visit the website of the Luzerne County Convention and Visitors move from Public Square. Bureau at www.tournepa.com. By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Board members of the Luzerne County Convention and Visitors Bureau are anxious to meet with the county manager next week to discuss the location of the bureau office and other issues. County Manager Robert Lawton is considering having the bureau move from its leased location at 56 Public Square in Wilkes-Barre to a county-owned facility such as a vacant office at the county recreation complex in Forty Fort to save money. The bureau leases office space from Frank Henry and Associates for $16,560 annually and rents parking spaces for its four employees at a rate of $600 quarterly, according to an audit by county Controller Walter Griffith. The lease expiredinDecember2002andpayments have continued month-tomonth. The bureau is funded largely with a 20 percent share of the county hotel tax, which netted the bureau $480,130 in operating revenue in 2011. Funding from the county general fund was cut in half last year, to $40,000. Griffith recommended the bureau obtain a current lease or consider relocating the office to county-owned property. He also recommended the bureau consider using parking available at the countyowned lot on East Market Street at theMarketStreetStationcomplex. The bureau board had put off lease renewal because plans had been in the works to move the office to the Market Street Station complex after the county redevelopment authority secured funding to renovate the former train station there. But county council nixed that plan last month after Lawton recommended against spending $2 million in federal funds on renovations. Lawtonearlierthisweeksaidthe possible relocation of the visitors bureau and a planned swap of the assessor’s and sheriff’s offices are part of a larger initiative to locate companion offices together and reduce the county’s reliance on leased space. The assessor-sheriff switch was recommended to Lawton by the county record improvement committee, which is evaluating office location options. Board has it’s own ideas While such moves might make sense for most county offices, members of the Convention and Visitors Bureau board believe there is more to consider than cost when determining the office location. “To be honest, I don’t know that you’re going to find a better place than the current location on Public Square,” said board Vice Chairman Ted Patton. “As far as walk-in traffic, if it’s not here, or not downtown somewhere, I really don’t know where

they could put it that would be as beneficial to the agency. I think they would lose the ability to have people walk in,” said Patton, vice president, corporate traffic, for the Martz Group, which is owned by the Henry family. At a meeting last month, board memberJohnMaday,membership services coordinator for the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, said he appreciates being able to send corporate and other visitors to the chamber across Public Square to the bureau for materials on recreational offerings. Board member Rob Belza said he thinks the current location of the bureau “is great. What place is more prominent in Luzerne CountythandowntownWilkes-Barre?… Most people coming into Luzerne County seem to migrate to the square.” Belza, director of corporate sales for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, said a prominent place on Public Square is an “ultimately better” location for the office, “but if budgets are forcing people’s hands, they might need to consider something else.” Location, location, location Donna Palermo, chair of the bureau’s board of directors, said any convention and visitors bureau should be “in a central location that’s readily available (to tourists and other visitors) and easy to find.” Palermo, president of the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, noted that the bureau once had an annex in Hazleton. “I would love to have another annex in our downtown. Budgetwise, I don’t know if that will happen, but it’s one of the goals I would like to see,” she said. Board member Gus Genetti said he thinks Lawton is doing the “best job he can under trying circumstances,” but he was “disappointed” when Lawton advised county council not to spend federal money to refurbish the former train station. “I hope in the future that can be reconsidered,” said Genetti, owner of the Best Western Genetti Hotel & Conference Center on East Market Street. But in the meantime, “Public Square is not a bad location” for the bureau office, he said. Attempts to reach board members Bob Borwick and Kelly Novakowski were unsuccessful. Board members have said that in addition to discussing the location of the bureau, they are looking forward to discussing the role of the board of directors, the importance of the work of the bureau in increasing tourism in the county and fosteringeconomicdevelopment,and financial oversight issues brought up in Griffith’s audit. Lawton did not return messages seeking comment that were left with his secretary on Wednesday and Thursday. Saturday. The tax office will be open 6 to 7:30 p.m. July 5. The tax office will be closed July 15 through 31, and will reopen when the 2012 school tax bills are issued. Those paying by mail and requesting a receipt should send the complete tax bill along with a self-addressed stamped envelope. A mail slot has been made available at the borough building for these payments. Borough building hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Home collections can be made by calling 718-1999 and leaving a message. Property owners who have not received a bill or who have received one in error should call the tax office.

Nanticoke fire displaces residents

Firefighters from several communities worked quickly Wednesday to contain a fire at a double block house at 63-65 W. Grove St., Nanticoke. The rear of the structure was gutted, said Nanticoke Fire Chief Michael Bohan. Two boys were home in the 63 W. Grove St. side of the building and escaped without injury, said Bohan. The residents on the other side, Richard and Jennifer Bonk and their child, were not home. Bohan said at least six or seven people are displaced by the fire. The cause is under investigation. “I’ve already contacted (Pennsylvania state police for a fire marshal),” said Bohan.

Wife is beneficiary in Paterno will Sue Paterno will inherit late husband’s property. Family to make document public. By CHRIS ROSENBLUM Centre Daily Times

BELLEFONTE -- Sue Paterno will inherit all of her late husband’s property, according to the will released by his family on Thursday. Joe Paterno’s will has been sealed in Centre County court, but the family said it’s petitioning Centre County court to make the documents public to “ensure maximum transparency and eliminate unfounded speculation.” Paterno was relieved of his coaching duties in November af-

ter details emerged concerning the investigation of alleged child abuse by Jerry Sandusky, Paterno’s former defensive coordinator. Paterno died in January at age 85. “At the suggestion of the attorney managing Joe Paterno’s estate, the family filed a motion, which the court approved, to seal the contents of his will,” Dan McGinn, the Paterno family spokesman, said in a written statement. “The request was entirely appropriate and totally consistent with the actions of other prominent individuals. The only objective was to preserve a measure of privacy for Sue Paterno, their five children, 17 grandchildren and other family members.”

In the original seven-page document filed in 1997, Joe Paterno decreed that his wife would receive his “automobiles, household and personal effects, and other tangible property of like nature” if she survived him by 60 days. That excluded cash or securities, but did include any existing insurance. If the 60-day condition had not been met, their children -Diana Lynne Paterno-Giegerich, Mary Kay Hort, David Paterno, Jay Paterno and Scott Paterno -would have shared the estate. Sue Paterno was appointed the personal representative of the will. McGinn said the Paterno family “will petition the Court to release the seal on all future filings.”

NYC’s big-soda ban could face legal test Opponents of the proposed ban may use slippery-slope argument, ask ‘What’s next?’ By SAMANTHA GROSS Associated Press

NEW YORK — If New York City bans big sodas, what’s next? Large slices of pizza? Doublescoop ice cream cones? Tubs of movie-theater popcorn? The 16ounce strip steak? Opponents of the proposed ban may use that slippery-slope argument along with other legal strategies to try to block the first-in-the-nation rule. Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to bar restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas, food carts and delis from selling so-

das and other sugary drinks in servings larger than 16 ounces, saying it is a way to fight obesity in a city that spends billions of dollars a year on weight-related health problems. Whether that’s legal, though, is a matter of dispute and all but certain to be tested. “We’re going to look at all of our options to protect our business, our rights to do business and our rights not to be discriminated against. We won’t take anything off the table,” said Steve Cahillane, a senior executive with Coca-Cola. The city Board of Health, appointed by the mayor, is expected to approve the measure after a three-month comment period. It could take effect as early as March, unless the critics who accuse Bloomberg of instituting a

“nanny state” can get the courts or state lawmakers to step in. It’s not just businesses and industry groups that could sue. In theory, any individual affected by the ban could bring a legal challenge. But it wouldn’t be enough to simply claim that the ban infringes on personal freedom, said Rick Hills, a New York University law professor specializing in local government law and New York City. While Bloomberg administration officials say they have no plans to move against solid foods, any local government could ban red meat — or even all animal products — without violating a person’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Hills argued.

LOCAL Medical school’s probation lifted The Commonwealth Medical College was on list for financial difficulties. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – The national accrediting body for medical schools has lifted The Commonwealth Medical College from probation, a move that puts the school back on track toward receiving full accreditation. The Liaison Committee on Medical Education, which accredits medical schools in the United States, placed the school on probation last summer due to financial difficulties and undertook a review of the school. While that went on, the college was able

to admit only 65 medical degree students in each class. With probation lifted, the number will grow to 100. The medical college, which opened in August 2009, announced layoffs last year -citing financial problems stemming from the $4 million drop in state funding, the estimated $120 million cost of the school’s permanent building that opened last fall and a drop in donations. As the school worked out cost-cutting moves, it also tried to work out an affiliation agreement with The University of Scranton. The two sides scrapped affiliation talks last month, but TCMC spokeswoman Anne Greene said discussions are ongoing with other schools, health care systems and hospitals about potential affiliations.

She declined to identify those entities, though both local health care giants, Geisinger and Commonwealth Health have denied they’re involved in discussions. After a vigorous analysis of an extensive database, TCMC’s institutional self-study, a student survey and three days of on-theground inspection, the committee concluded TCMC had made progress to remove the probation status and advance the school to provisional accreditation, the next step in the full accreditation process, the school announced. . The probation did not change the “preliminary accreditation” the school earned, butdiddelaythestepstofullaccreditation. The school is now back on that path without a huge hurdle in its way. In a letter announcing the change in sta-

tus to TCMC staff and students, Interim President and Dean Louis Margaret Nora said “We are moving forward with hiring additional faculty members. The search for the permanent CEO/Dean is well underway.” Nora took over the school’s top post after the college’s inaugural president and dean, Robert D’Alessandri, abruptly resigned in April 2011 with no reason given to the public. Nora announced she too will be leaving by month’s end to accept a position in Chicago. The college’s board of trustees announced recently that Dr. Robert E. Wright will succeed Nora beginning June 29andwillserveinthispositionuntilapermanent CEO/dean is named through an ongoing national search.

W. Pittston group looks ahead Group wants to see levee system along with other improvements. By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

EXETER – A number of local residents filled the auditorium at Wyoming Area High School on Thursday for a presentation by West Pittston Tomorrow, a citizen’s action group that’s proposing a number of innovative changes for the floodravaged community. The group, which states its mission for West Pittston as “Preserving Yesterday. Rebuilding Today. Sculpting Tomorrow,” outlined a number of proposals, including a program to attract new business, a small-business support initiative and an extensive road and sidewalk renovation project, as well as plans for a community center and library. “I was born and raised in West Pitt-

ston,” said group Chairwoman Judy Aita. “I want to help create a vibrant revitalized community that everyone can be proud of.” The centerpiece of West Pittston Tomorrow’s agenda is a proposed levee system along the Susquehanna River in the flood-prone borough that will protect residents from future inundation from rising water. The borough not protected by the levee system that helped prevent extensive damage to many other Wyoming Valley communities in the historic 2011 flooding, which damaged more than 800 homes and business in the borough. Group officials said they plan to approach the Army Corps of Engineers to commission a “levee feasibility study” that will determine whether federal funding through the Corps will be available for the proposed project. The proposed 1.5 mile levee would run

along Susquehanna Avenue, and different engineering analyses put the total cost at between $7 million and $18 million. “Once the feasibility study is done, we’ll get a better handle on actual costs,” said Infrastructure Committee member Sam Polit. “We have done a lot of preliminary work on this already. We feel confident that we will be successful in getting the funding we need for the levee.” Aita stated Army Corps officials told her to “plan, not do,” as part of the group’s preparation for federal grant money. “Thorough planning is vital to this process,” said Aita. “As soon as tomorrow, we plan to approach private and state sources for possible funding. We will exhaust all avenues.” The group plans to restore the “walkability” of the community by restoring the water-torn sidewalks and creating a riverside museum with an observation deck overlooking the Susquehanna.

Mercantile barn at Hillside Farms restored The 19th-century structure at The Lands is now a general store. By NODYIA FEDRICK Times Leader Intern

KINGSTON TWP. -- Modern technology and ageless philanthropy gave a 19th-century structure a new lease on life at The Lands at Hillside Farms. Board by board, the timberframed barn, donated by the Maslow family, was broken down, relocated and restored as the Mercantile barn at the nonprofit educational dairy farm. “We don’t remodel -- we restore. We want to get it back as it was,” Hillside development director Suzanne Kelly said Thursday at the ribbon cutting to commemorate the restoration. Part of a $500,000 state grant was used mostly to re-

store the Mercantile, now a general store where patrons can purchase products ranging from home décor to children’s games and puzzles. These are all, “items that were made on farms, items that were made locally and items made in America,” said Kelly. The products are examples to highlight the importance of sustainability and a “Buy Local/Buy American” initiative, Kelly and Hillside Executive Director Chet Mozloom said. “To be sustainable, you need to be able to take care of yourself,” Kelly said. And Hillside is practicing what is being preached, right down to the handcrafted wild blueberry jam samples from Maine. “We understand all the jobs and products are going overseas and it’s putting businesses out of business. … Support your neighbor, support the small business, support those

grant money. Both contribute to additional jobs and volunteer work on the 412-acre farm. State Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, who obtained the state grant, also spoke at the ceremony.

NANTICOKE – Everyone loves a parade, and the Wyoming Valley is getting a new one. The South Valley Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday it will host its inaugural South Valley Patriots Day Parade on Sunday, July 15, in Nanticoke. Planned as an annual event, the chamber’s 25 member municipalities will take turns hosting the parade in subsequent years. The parade is dedicated to area patriots, a group the chamber defines broadly. Jerry Hudak, president of the South Valley Chamber, said the parade will honor the service not only of America’s armed forces, but of municipal emergency responders as well. “We want to show the appreciation of The South Valley Chamber of Commerce for these duties, and for those who have fallen in those duties,” Hudak said. Chamber Executive Director Christopher Carey added to that list business owners, municipal leaders and “everyone down to the person who cuts the grass; everyone who does their duty to make their community better.” The parade begins at 11 a.m., though activities on and around Nanticoke’s Patriot Park will continue from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Starting near Greater Nanticoke Area High School, the parade will proceed up East Green Street, turn right onto South Market Street, turn right again at East Main Street and end at the intersection of East Main Street and Kosciuszko Street. Organizers said veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan will march along with area emergency responders. Events around Patriot Park will include food vendors, informational booths from chamber businesses and community organizations, live music and deejays and children’s activities, including face-painting, balloon animals, clowns and an inflatable bounce house. Several ceremonies will also be held throughout the day, including a flag-raising ceremony and tolling of the fire bell for fallen firefighters.

Embezzler’s jail sentence is upheld However, judge grants former businesswoman hearing to determine right to appeal. Times Leader Staff

A federal judge has declined to vacate the sentence of a former title search company owner who stole $2.3 million from clients, but he did grant her an evidentiary hearing to determine if her right to appeal her sentence should be restored. Elizabeth Sichler, formerly of Harveys Lake, filed court papers seeking to vacate her 55Sichler month sentence based on allegations her attorney, Marc Neff of Philadelphia, provided ineffective assistance of counsel. Sichler pleaded guilty in October 2010 to one count of wire fraud for embezzling from 92 clients who had deposited money in the escrow account of her title search firm, Priority Search in Kingston. In her motion to vacate, Sichler alleged, among other things, that Neff failed to properly communicate to her the possible sentence she faced under federal sentencing guidelines. U.S. District Judge William Nealon rejected that argument, saying the evidence shows Sichler was advised in writing of the possible sentencing range in several documents. Nealon granted Sichler a hearing to determine the veracity of her claim that Neff failed to follow her directive to file an appeal of her sentence. Nealon noted Neff, in an affidavit, said he spoke to Sichler about her appellate rights, but she never directed him to file the appeal.

Investigators say they know Gonzalez boarded a plane to the Dominican Republic sometime after the homicide.

Assistant District Attorney Dan Zola, who prosecuted the case with ADA Shannon Crake said, “The beating didn’t stop at the stabbing. (Sanchez) continued stomping, kicking and punching (Ruiz) … until he was dragged

He graduated from high school and had completed his first year of college when the incident occurred, Fannick said. Sanchez has a wife and 2-yearold child, Fannick said, has accepted responsibility and is remorseful. Jose Sanchez, Sanchez’s father, said his son was never a problem child and is a good father to his own child. “If it wasn’t for the other guy … this wouldn’t have happened,” Jose Sanchez said, with the assistance of an interpreter.

Allentown man pleads guilty to open lewdness By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A man pleaded guilty to exposing himself to two female students at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre. Anthony M. Cruz, 23, of Allentown, pleaded guilty to charges of open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness at a preliminary hearing in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on Thursday. Police withdrew the most serious charges against Cruz, two counts each of indecent assault and indecent exposure. District Judge Andrew Barilla fined Cruz $450.50 for the offense. He pleaded guilty to the charges despite the two students not appearing at the court proceeding. Officer Stanley Wychock told Barilla he recently spoke with the two women, who told him they were in agreement with the negotiated plea deal. They are out of town while on summer recess from college, Wychock said.

According to the criminal complaint: Police received a report that an intoxicated man, identified as Cruz, exposed himself to a woman and improperly touched the other woman in the area of 177 N. Main St. on April 22. One of the women said Cruz initiated a conversation with her, asking if she had a boyfriend. She stated Cruz began touching and kissing her, the criminal complaint says. Another woman told police Cruz asked her the same question. He told the second woman to look down while he exposed himself to her. She walked away as Cruz followed her while continuing to expose himself, according to the complaint. Both women ran into Gateway Hall on campus. Police said King’s College security detained Cruz inside the hall’s lobby.

A man walks 11-year old female elephant Ganga, which belongs to a Buddhist temple, down a street in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on Thursday. Tame elephants traditionally have an important role in the Island’s Buddhist customs and are considered a status symbol.

CAIRO — Judges appointed by Hosni Mubarak dissolved the Islamist-dominated parliament Thursday and ruled that Mubarak’s former prime minister can stand in the presidential runoff this weekend — setting the stage for the military and remnants of the old regime to stay in power. The rulings effectively erase the tenuous progress from the past year’s troubled transition, leaving Egypt with no parliament and concentrating rule even more firmly in the hands

of the military generals who took power after Mubarak’s ouster. The fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood, which stands to lose the most from the rulings, called the moves a coup and vowed to rally the street against the ruling military and former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq, the presidential candidate seen by critics as a favorite of the generals and a symbol of Mubarak’s autocratic rule. As night fell, a crowd of protesters was rapidly growing in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, birthplace of the uprising that toppled Mubarak last year. Senior Brotherhood leader and lawmaker Mohammed elBeltagy said the rulings amounted to a “full-fledged coup.” “This is the Egypt that Shafiq

Court releases Scout files

The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday approved the release of 20,000 pages of so-called perversion files compiled by the Boy Scouts of America on suspected child molesters within the organization for more than 20 years, giving the public its first chance to review the records. The files, gathered from 1965 to 1985, came to light when they were used as evidence in a landmark Oregon lawsuit in 2010. A jury awarded a record $18.5 million to a man who was molested by an assistant scoutmaster in the early 1980s, ruling that the Scouts failed to protect him. The case drew attention to the organization’s efforts to keep child molesters out of its leadership ranks. The files contain accusations against Scout leaders ranging from child abuse to lesser offenses that would prohibit them from working in the Scouts. CHEYENNE, WYO.

Tankers withheld from fires

President Barack Obama signed a bill this week hastening the addition of seven large tanker planes to the nation’s rundown aerial firefighting fleet, at a cost of $24 million. The same day, two C-130 military transport planes designed for that very purpose sat on a tarmac in Cheyenne, shrouded in an eye-watering haze from a raging Colorado wildfire just a 15-minute flight away. In all, eight workhorse C-130s stand ready to fight destructive wildfires around the country — but all are grounded due to rules governing the use of the nation’s aerial firefighting resources. The new purchases, meanwhile, won’t help firefighters battling destructive blazes in Colorado, New Mexico and elsewhere in the West for weeks, if not months. DES MOINES, IOWA

It is the seventh ticket sold in Iowa to win the Powerball jackpot. The most recent was a Fort Dodge couple who claimed a $200.8 million jackpot in October 2006. The latest winning ticket matches the numbers of 7, 10, 14, 33 and 57, plus the Powerball number of 18.

It is hoping to win the presidency as well with its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, in this weekend’s presidential run-off against Shafiq. The rulings now take away their power base in parliament and boost Shafiq. But the court rulings also derail the broader transition to democracy, said rights lawyer Hossam Bahgat. A day earlier, the military-appointed government gave the military police and intelligence the right to arrest civilians for a range of vague crimes such as disrupting traffic and the economy that would give it a mandate to crack down on protests.

Cross-state economic duel Obama, Romney present their visions for recovery from opposite ends of Ohio. By JULIE PACE and STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press

CLEVELAND — From opposing ends of battleground Ohio, President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney on Thursday offered vastly different visions of how to speed up America’s economic recovery. They accused each other of pursuing failed ideas, yet on a day of high expectation both offered familiar platforms and lines. In Cincinnati, Romney said,

“Don’t forget, he’s been president for three and a half years. And talk is cheap. Actions speak very loud.” Speaking just ahead of Obama’s economic address, Romney said, “If you want to see the results of his economic policy, look around Ohio, look around the country.” Obama, trying in Cleveland to define the choice for voters, presented the election as a time when the country could break a stalemate of ideas. Giving a recession-drained nation his version of the recent past, Obama said: “If you want to give the policies of the last decade another try, then you should vote for Mr. Romney.” The backdrop was vital

Ohio, one of the deeply contested states that could swing the election. With the two men locked in a tight campaign, it appeared they might actually talk over each other from 250 miles apart, until Romney ran ahead of schedule and Obama started a little behind. What unfolded was a backto-back duel on television. The former Massachusetts governor offered no new proposals in what was his standard speech, castigating the president for stimulus spending, the health care law and failure to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada. He also criticized the president’s policies toward China, saying he would label the

Asian nation as a currency manipulator on his first day in office if elected president. Obama tried to use his speech to take the campaign where he wants it — a deep, long look at how his economic vision differs from Romney’s. He spoke in budgetary detail about his ideas for spurring job growth and trimming the national debt, warning people not to fall for the Romney line that Obama is in over his head. No matter what path either candidate follows to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, Ohio and its 18 votes figure in every scenario. No Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio.

Report: Raising child as costly as new Ferrari The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — For $235,000, you could indulge in a shiny new Ferrari — or raise a child for 17 years. A government report released Thursday found that a middle-income family with a child born last year will spend about that much in child-related expenses from birth through age 17. That’s a 3.5 percent increase from 2010. The report from the Agriculture Department’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion said housing is the single largest expense, averaging about

$70,500, or 30 percent of the total cost. Families living in the urban Northeast tend to have the highest child-rearing expenses, followed by those in the urban West and the urban Midwest. Those living in the urban South and rural areas face the lowest costs. The estimate also includes the cost of transportation, child care, education, food, clothing, health care and miscellaneous expenses. The USDA has issued the report every year since 1960, when it estimated the cost of raising a child was just over

$25,000 for middle-income families. That would be $191,720 today when adjusted for inflation. Housing was also the largest expense in raising a child back in 1960. But the cost of child care for young children — negligible 50 years ago — is now the second largest expense as more moms work outside the home. The report considers middle-income parents to be those with an income between $59,400 and $102,870. It says families that earn more can expect to spend more on their children.

WASHINGTON — Last summer, gays in the military dared not admit their sexual orientation. This summer, the Pentagon will salute them, marking June as gay pride month just as it has marked other celebrations honoring racial or ethnic groups. In the latest remarkable sign of change since Panetta the military repealed the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, the Defense Department will soon hold its first event to recognize gay and lesbian troops. It comes nine months after repeal of the policy that had banned gay troops from serving openly and forced more than 13,500 service members out of the armed forces. Details are still being worked out, but officials say Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wants to honor the contributions of gay service members. “Now that we’ve repealed ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ he feels it’s important to find a way this month to recognize the service and professionalism of gay and lesbian troops,” said Navy Capt. John Kirby, a spokesman. This month’s event will follow a long tradition in the Pentagon of recognizing diversity in America’s armedforces.Hallwaydisplaysand activities, for example, have marked Black History Month and Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. Although some feared repeal of the ban on serving openly would cause problems in the ranks, officials and gay advocacy groups say no big issues have materialized — aside from what advocacy groups criticize as slow implementation of some changes, such as benefit entitlements to troops in same-sex marriages. Basicchangeshavecomerapidly since repeal — the biggest that gay and lesbian soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines no longer have to hide their sexuality in order to serve. OutServe, a once-clandestine professional association for gay service members, has nearly doubled in size to more than 5,500 members.

N.J. seeks to block drill waste By ANDREW DUFFELMEYER Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. — Lawmakers on Thursday approved legislation banning hydraulic fracturing byproducts from other states from entering New Jersey, citing concerns about waste from neighboring Pennsylvania endangering public health and the environment in the Garden State. The Assembly’s Environment Committee voted 5-1 for the measure, which now heads to the full Assembly. The Senate’s Environment Committee approved a similar measure last week and voted earlier this year to ban the practice, which involves blasting chemical-laced water deep into the ground. The measure specifically bans in New Jersey the treatment, discharge, disposal or storage of any wastewater, wastewater solids, sludge, drill cuttings or other byproducts of the practice, also called fracking, in any state. Environmental groups rallied in front of the Statehouse earlier

in the day against fracking, saying the process and its byproducts are dangerous. Speakers said they want lawmakers to focus on clean energy and stop Republican Gov. Chris Christie from diverting $279 million from the state’s clean energy fund to balance the state budget. Jeff Tittel, director of the Sierra Club of New Jersey, said the state already has enough pollution to deal with. “The main question is does New Jersey need to bring in another state’s waste,” he said. But Jim Benton, executive director of the petroleum council in New Jersey, said there’s no need for a ban and he believes New Jersey is capable of addressing the issue through existing regulations. He said fracking has brought down the cost of energy and provided economic benefits. Data from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection show byproducts from fracking are already coming into the state.

Butler Township votes to oppose state Act 13 Supervisors will spend $2,999 for a standby portable generator for EMA. By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

BUTLER TWP. – The township supervisors voted unanimously Thursday night on a resolution endorsing action by Delaware Riverkeepers Network in opposing state Act 13, which officials of the network stated in an email, can deprive a municipality of its ability to restrict shale gas drilling. The act, according to the Delaware River group, violates both the state and the U.S. Constitution because it supersedes protections local officials are sworn to uphold with regard to health and safety and, as well, the ability to restrict natural gas drilling. Gov. Tom Corbett signed the act into law on Feb. 14, and the river group is challenging its validity. Maryanne Petrilla, township manager, proposed that the reso-

lution be approved; Supervisors Brian Kisenwether, Charles Altmiller and Ransom Young concurred. The supervisors also voted to spend $2,999 for a standby portable generator for the Emergency Management Agency. The cost, it was stated by Petrilla, will be shared equally from grant funds of both the township and Conyngham Borough. Tabled was a proposal to purchase a new sign intended for positioning at the front of municipal building. It was tabled at Young’s request, pending a 6-month budget review report. During the public comment phase of the meeting, the supervisors heard complaints about

noise at the Mountain Speedway and alleged open burning violations in the neighborhood of High Meadows Drive. Joe Ososki, who said his residence is near the speedway, requested that the supervisors act to restrict track usage during week days. Ososki said he had no problem with racing on Saturday and Sunday when events are regularly scheduled; but, he charged, “We don’t get any peace” when practice runs are conducted on

weekdays. “All we want is a little break.” Young said the supervisors are considering a noise ordinance but it “would take 90 days to impose.” He suggested instead that a meeting between the supervisors and the track operator might produce a compromise. Blaine Rampulla, of High Meadows Drive, charged blatant, illegal opening burning is prevalent by a neighbor who Rampulla didn’t name.

Man arraigned in May assault on pregnant woman Dejuane Herbie Gause is charged with attacking a pregnant woman in W-B.

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A man was arraigned Thursday in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on charges he attacked a pregnant woman.

Dejuane Herbie Gause, 26, last known address as Short Street, Edwardsville, was charged with aggravated assault of an unborn child, terroristic threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $10,000 bail. Police charged Gause and Natalie Thomas, 24, who has

not been arraigned, after Antoinette Evans stated they assaulted her in the area of 74 N. Empire Court on May 27. Evans was seven months pregnant at the time of the alleged assault. According to the criminal complaint: Police working a special detail near the Sherman Hills apartment complex received a report that a pregnant woman

was assaulted. Evans told police she was walking with a friend when she was approached by Gause, Thomas and another woman. Evans stated Gause and Thomas grabbed her and threw her on the ground. Evans told police Gause then said to her he was going to kill her baby, threw a rock at her stomach and kicked her in the abdomen, the criminal complaint says.

Police said in the criminal complaint that Evans alleged Thomas picked up the rock and threw it at her stomach, saying she wanted to kill Evans and her unborn child, the complaint says. Gause picked up the rock and allegedly smashed the windshield on Evans’ grandfather’s vehicle. Police said the rock weighed 9 pounds.

Evans said pepper spray was sprayed in her face and on her grandfather. Evans was transported to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital after the alleged assault. Thomas is facing similar charges, which were filed with District Judge Martin Kane in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday. Gause is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on June 26 in Central Court.

No arrest yet in shootings Times Leader staff

WILKES-BARRE – City police said Thursday a teen shot in the leg Wednesday night at a playground was released from the hospital and another teen required surgery for a non-life threatening injury. The two 17-year-old boys were wounded in a playground in the Boulevard Townhomes apartment complex along WilkesBarre Boulevard just before 11 p.m. Wednesday, police said. The teen shot in the leg and ran to McDonald’s restaurant a block away on East Northampton Street and Wilkes-Barre Boulevard. The other teen was shot in

the back, police said. Both were taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. Police questioned the teen who was released from the hospital and were waiting to interview the teen who remains hospitalized. No charges have been filed. Police did not release further details about the shooting. The shooting is about a block from where Tyler Winstead, 14, was found shot in front of 117 Hill St. on April 5.

Exempt media in war on leaks

A

N ANGRY U.S. Sen. John McCain, RAriz., has called for a special prosecutor to investigate leaks he says are designed to portray President Obama as a strong leader on national security issues. Without going that far, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says that recent leaks “endanger American lives and undermine America’s national security.” She is proposing that Congress provide “additional authorities and resources to identify and prosecute those who violate various federal laws and non-disclosure agreements by revealing highly classified information.” Although she did not advocate prosecuting journalists, the senator probably spoke for many of her colleagues when she told CNN that part of the problem was EDITORIAL BOARD

that “we have an enormously smart constituency of journalists … who piece things together.” So far most of the outcry has been directed at the administration, not the news media, but in similar controversies, critics have not been so discerning. So we would urge Congress – and the administration – not to criminalize the reporting of information that might have come into the possession of the media because a government official was indiscreet. It might sound like special pleading for a newspaper to urge that the campaign against leaks stop at the reporter’s door. But society benefits from public-spirited journalism that, in some cases, depends on the willingness of a government official to scale a wall of secrecy. Los Angeles Times

Wary adults can reduce summertime risks for kids JUNE IS a great time of year, just ask any child. It marks the end of school and the beginning of summer, which means long days playing outdoors, swimming and gathering with friends and family. June also is National Safety Month, so it’s the perfect time to think about how to keep all those youngsters safe and injury-free. With longer days and higher temperatures, summertime unfortunately brings an increase in injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 2 million children under age 15 will visit an emergency room this summer, and more than 2,000 children will die as a result of accidents or injuries. The good news is that most of these types of injuries can be prevented with common sense and vigilance by supervising adults. For example, all children should be supervised while near water, including pools, spas, lakes and streams. Accidental drowning claims the lives of approximately 750 children each year, according to the National Safety Council. To avoid injury, gates should be placed around all pools and spas at your home. Older children should be educated about water safety and taught to swim. Other injuries occur as a result of children playing. Most parents understand that running, climbing and playing games are typical activities for children, but adults should enforce reasonable requirements.

wheels (bikes, skateboards, roller skates, etc.), be sure the child is wearing a helmet. And children need to be taught where it’s safe to play. Hopscotch on the sidewalk can be fun, but playing ball in the street can be very dangerous. Set limits and make sure your children understand them. Also, climbing on the backyard jungle gym is great fun for kids, but mom and dad need to make sure it’s sturdy and has no exposed metal that can cause injury. It also should have a soft foundation of mulch, sand or matting, and children should be taught not to climb in ways that are dangerous to themselves or others. Keep these other tips in mind to ensure your children are safe and have fun this summer: • Keep children away from the grill and outdoor fireplace. • Keep all poisons, including pesticides and lawn and pool chemicals, out of the reach of children. • Avoid fireworks. • Make sure children wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, and re-apply sunscreen every one to two hours, even if it’s advertised as waterproof. • Children who play in or near wooded areas should use insect repellant and later be examined for ticks, bug bites and rash-

es. • Teach children to stay away from unfamiliar dogs and other animals, and to never approach a pet without its owner present. • Trampolines are dangerous and should be avoided. • All terrain vehicles (ATVs) also should be avoided, as they cause more than 25,000 injuries and 55 deaths among children each year, according to a Consumer Products Safety Commission study. • Learn CPR, basic first aid, and teach your children how to call 911 in case of an emergency. With some common sense and proper supervision, you can help make this summer lots of fun for children.

ennsylvania’s coal industry, the fourthlargest in the country, employs 52,000 people. New regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could force utilities across the nation to abandon coal as a fuel for power generation, which could very soon put each of these men and women out of work. I am a staunch proponent of clean air, but the new EPA regulations will cost power plants and consumers millions without measurably improving air quality. On the other hand, several independent research groups have concluded that the new regulations would put thousands of jobs in jeopardy and increase Pennsylvania’s energy costs by as much as 8 percent.

Producer says JoePa film’s message really scores

The hour-long documentary is expected to be shown next month at F.M. Kirby Center. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The film “The Joe We Know” clearly shows, thefilm’sproducersays,thatJoePaterno’s “Grand Experiment” really worked. Eric Porterfield co-wrote the film with former Penn State player Dan Leri, and Porterfield’s company produced the film that is expected to be shown next month at the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts. The “Grand Experiment” was

Paterno’s belief that you could obey the rules andstillplaytopflight winning football. The hour-long documentary Porterfield about the late Penn State coach will be shown at the Kirby Center on July 20. The date is tentative, according to Kirby Center officials, because a contract for the presentation has not yet beensigned,buttheJuly20dateappears accurate, they said. The movie, which was first shown on Valentine’s Day as a present to Sue Paterno, the coach’s widow, contains comments from 70 former Penn State players who

were interviewed over12 days in locations across the country. Porterfield, 51, urged Penn State fans and the general public to see the film. “Players have long been a barometer for Penn State in general,” Porterfield said. “Many schools’ histories look to players to define their placeinhistory.Theseareboyswho became men who learned the principles of life from their coach.” Porterfield said the Grand Experiment is about those important messages. “It’s about love, honesty, being faithful and all the core values people should have,” he said. Porterfield said the film is timely in light of publicity given the sensational Jerry Sandusky trial.

he never sought medical attention. “I just dealt with it,” he said. Another accuser told jurors Sandusky called himself the “tickle monster” before embracing him in a shower. Also testifying was Anthony Sassano, an investigator with the attorney general’s office, who disclosed that the office learned of a key witness, Mike McQueary, after an anonymous letter was sent to Centre County prosecutors. Judge John Cleland told jurors there would be no court today and to return Monday. The 18-year-old, described as Victim 9 in court records, became known to investigators after Sandusky was first arrested in November and his mother summoned police to their home. He said he didn’t want to talk to them at first. “Who would believe kids?” he said. A few weeks later Sandusky was charged with two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and other offenses in his case, among the most serious set of the 52 charges Sandusky has denied and is fighting. A third accuser, known as Victim 3, was an Army National Guard soldier who testified Thursday that despite being fondled by Sandusky he had viewed him as a father figure and was crushed when he was sent to a group home and Sandusky never contacted him again. “I would pray he would call me and maybe find a way to get me out of there,” he said, “but it never happened.” He testified that he felt uncomfortable when Sandusky touched his genitals in bed and he would

roll over to prevent anything else from happening but that he didn’t tell Sandusky not to get into bed with him. “He made me feel like I was a part of something, like a family,” the man said. “He gave me things that I hadn’t had before.” He said that he loved Sandusky and that Sandusky treated him like he was part of an extended family that made him feel “unconditionally loved.” Sandusky’s arrest brought disgrace to Penn State and led to the ouster of both the school’s president and coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky’s attorney questioned accusers on Thursday about connections they had with other accusers. The defense has claimed that the accusers have financial motives, although sever-

al have said that police contacted them and that they expressed their reluctance to get involved. Earlier Thursday, an accuser called Victim 6 testified Sandusky described himself as a “tickle monster” and embraced the then-11-year-old boy in a Penn State shower in 1998, an encounter that prompted an investigation but ended without any charges filed. Now 25, he told jurors Sandusky embraced him in a locker room shower, lathered up his back and shoulders then lifted him chest-to-chest to a shower head to rinse out his hair. His mother went to authorities when she saw her son come home with wet hair, although the inquiry spawned by her report didn’t lead to any charges.

“As Jimmy Cefalo (of Pittston) said, ‘The players are Coach Paterno’s legacy,’ ” Porterfield said. “The timing of this couldn’t have been better.” The film was completed just two days before Paterno died. It has beenshownonseveralPBSstations – including WVIA-TV – over the last few months. Harry Hamilton, who played at Greater Nanticoke High School and then for Penn State before embarking on a career in the National Football League, has a huge role in film, Porterfield said. “Harry is probably one of the five guys who best emulate the Grand Experiment theory,” Porterfield said. “He is one of the many players who benefited from the principles

The witness, who described himself as a big football fan, testified that Sandusky showed him Penn State football facilities and let him try on players’ equipment. One of the investigators who interviewed the boy and Sandusky at the time, Ronald Schreffler, told the court that he thought charges were warranted but that the district attorney, Ray Gricar, disagreed. Gricar cannot explain his decision; he disappeared in 2005 and was later declared legally dead. On cross-examination, the man testified that in recent years he and Sandusky exchanged text messages, sent notes for holidays and special occasions and last summer met for lunch. He also told the court that Sandusky and his wife had supported a mission trip he took to Mexico. “As I started to go over it in my mind I quickly realized, my perception changed thinking about it as an adult as opposed to an 11year-old,” he said. “That was inappropriate, what happened to me.” Asked whether he was looking for financial benefit from coming forward, the man replied, “Zero.” Sassano, the state investigator, said authorities obtained lists of children who attended events sponsored by Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile, sending investigators across a wide swath of the State College region to talk to participants. They also poured through Sandusky’s biography, “Touched,” and other documents found in his home and office. They brainstormed about who else could have been in university buildings during off hours, including janitors and others. Eventually, they issued subpoenas to Penn State. “Penn State, to be quite frank, was not very quick in getting us our information,” he said.

Zion Baptist Church of Wilkes-Barre, met with city administrators and launched the program. “The measure of the response had to meet the level of the tragedy,” Walker said while addressing the people attending the third of four planned town hall meetings. By all accounts it has. Walker added, “It’s gaining a lot of momentum.” When they began there was some uncertainty, acknowledged Brewster. “We had not a clue where this would go,” he said. The program is moving toward becoming something permanent as a non-profit, he announced. Wilkes-Barre city solicitor Bill Vinsko agreed to assist with the application, said Brewster. Vinsko was among the city officials in attendance. Others included police Chief Gerry Dessoye, city Administrator Marie McCormick and city council Chairman Mike Merritt. Also attending were Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis and Wilkes-Barre Area school board members John Quinn, Mary Ann Toole and Phil Latinski.

mant for years, Fischbein said. Having to relive the traumatic experience in a courtroom can “stir up the pot,” he said. “It’s a very emotional time and can cause a reactivation or exacerbation of symptoms,” Fischbein said. “For the short haul, they may have flashbacks or even nightmares, increased irritability, difficulty concentrating. That can affect their ability to have interpersonal relationships.” Sandusky, 68, a former assistant football coach for Penn State University, is on trial in Centre County Court on charges he sexually assaulted 10 boys over a 15year period.

spokesman James May. This work will include eight bridges along Interstate 81 in Luzerne County and a bridge on the state Route 309 northbound center city exit, May said. The number of structurally deficient bridges statewide has decreased from a high of 6,034 to 4,813 as of March, he said.

too well the emotional toll the Sandusky trial has taken on his accusers. In 2002 St. John testified at a mental-health hearing for Albert Fentress, who was found not guilty by reason of insanity for the 1979 murder and sexual mutilation of an 18-year-old man in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Fentress was set to be released until St. John and another man came forward to advise authorities he had molested them as young boys. Though it was difficult, St. John said testifying at the Fentress hearing also provided him “a form of release.” “You get rid of the infection that’s festering inside of you. When I was done testifying, I was able to put a Band Aid on it and I was able to heal slowly,” he said. The bigger challenge, he said,

came in the weeks and months after the hearing. “I was still obsessively thinking about it day in and day out. Where is he? Am I safe? There is definitely some post trauma that occurs,” he said. A year after the hearing, he decided he had to do something. He told his story to his local newspaper and became an advocate in assisting male sexual assault victims to come forward. He said he wants the Sandusky accusers to know that, no matter how bad things seem now, there is hope. “These guys face a long road to recovery, but recovery is possible,” he said. “I used to look out the window and say why can’t I be normal? Why can’t I be happy? Now I’m one of the happiest people I know.”

September 2011 flooding are in design, and the two more are in the planning stage, Gibbons said. Gibbons hesitates to tap the county’s limited pot of borrowed capital funds to replace bridges, preferring to use the money as a local match for grants to resurface county roads. Most county roads are not eligible for federal funding, he said. The county replaced the singlelane Mill Mountain Road Bridge in Butler Township in 2011 by designing the repair and circumventing the federal replacement process. If the county had opted to tear down the old bridge, the new one would have to be two lanes and cost an estimated $1.5 million due to federal design requirements.

After testimony ended Thursday, Judge John Cleland said court would resume on Monday. Prosecutors said they would continue to present their case then.

He said Romney is expected to arrive in Weatherly, in Carbon County, about nine miles east of Hazleton, between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. On the website mittromney.com the visit is posted under Pennsylvania. It invites supporters to join Romney in Weatherly -- doors open at 7:45 a.m. and the program begins at 8:45 a.m. Kate Meriwether, Romney’s communications director for Pennsylvania, confirmed the visit and the proposed times.

Being involved with a non-profit, Matthews plans to help Building Bridges get off the ground. “I hate to see an organization like this, where two guys with so much energy, get bogged down in administration,” he said. Another participant offered help in an unexpected way. Doug Miller, director of the Rock Recreation Center in the Back Mountain, said the center would provide 40 scholarships to attend youth sports camps this summer. The all-day camps are for children from Kindergarten to sixth grade, cost between $120 and $130 a week, include lunch and transportation. Miller admitted he wasn’t sure how he would pay for the scholarships but had faith benefactors would respond. “We’re confident that we’ll be able to find people that believe in the program,” he said. After participating in the meeting 16-year-old Jessie Gibson liked what went on. “I really had a great time,” said Gibson, one of the few teenagers in attendance. She plans to tell others kids about it so they can come, too.

Leib said the Weatherly foundry opened in 1900. Romney is traveling the country on his “Believe in America: Every Town Counts” bus tour. He will leave New Hampshire today, according to his campaign website, and will be in Michigan on Tuesday.

Doing away with non-essential bridges also would reduce waterway obstructions during flooding. Gibbons said he also tries to focus on bridges needed to prevent extreme detours. The federal government requires inspections every two years on all bridges over 20 feet, and the county also meets that standard for bridges under 20 feet, Gibbons said. The county ended up owning and maintaining most of its bridges during the Great Depression, when the court ordered a takeover because townships and municipalities didn’t have the financial means to take care of the structures, Gibbons said.

Armstrong considering all of his options

Tiger tough at Olympic

By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports Writer

AUSTIN, Texas — Lance Armstrong is gearing up for a fight over the latest round of doping allegations. Armstrong’s lawyers demanded access to evidence gathered by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, including test results and the names of witnesses who said they saw the seven-time Tour de France champion use performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong has until June 22 to respond in writing to the fresh allegations, the first step of what could be months-long process. “I’m exploring all my options,” Armstrong said in a telephone interview Thurs- Armstrong day with The Associated Press from Paris. “They’re not limited only to arbitration with USADA. I think there are other questions that need to be answered with regard to their behavior and tactics.” “They are well known to move the goal line on you,” he said, referring to the drug agency. “We are entitled to certain things, certain pieces of evidence, if not all the evidence in terms of what will be in front of the review board,” he said. The AP obtained a copy of the letter Armstrong’s attorney, Robert Luskin, sent to USADA. “(We) cannot protect Mr. Armstrong’s rights without knowing who is saying what and what events that allegedly occurred over the course of a decade and a half,” Luskin wrote. “Even at this preliminary stage, your reliance on secret witnesses making deliberately vague charges is unconscionable.” The letter noted that USADA and other drug agencies “have long demonstrated their zeal to crucify Mr. Armstrong. ... We have learned the hard way not to underestimate USADA’s obsession with Mr. Armstrong.” In a previous letter, Luskin complained that USADA officials tagged along with federal criminal investigators to interview witnesses during a two-year probe that ended in February with no criminal charges against Armstrong. Armstrong had hoped that case would end the doping questions that have dogged his career, but USADA said it would press its own investigation. The agency notified Armstrong on Tuesday that the new charges would be filed. See ARMSTRONG, Page 4B

WVC West All-Stars pound 15 hits in thumping of East in annual senior classic.

EDWARDSVILLE – Tunkhannock’s Wes Custer hit a basesclearing triple to kick-start an early slew of runs for the West that held up in a 15-4 defeat of the East in the WVC Senior All Star Game at Ralston Field. Custer’s drive came in the bottom of the second and scored Matt Zielen, Matt Klinges and Tyler McGovern for a 3-0 lead. Custer came around to score on an RBI single from Wyoming Valley West’s Tommy Alexander for a 4-0 lead. The double was Custer’s only hit of the day, but combined with the three RBI and run scored it was enough to earn the former Tunkhannock catcher game MVP honors. “I had no idea it was going to be, to be honest,” Custer said. “It feels awesome to win it, though. The whole game was a lot of fun, too, to be out here with some of these guys that you play against all season or play some Legion ball with after.” After the quick start, the West wasted little time adding more to the scoreboard. Pat Cook took to the mound for the East to start the third inning and was promptly greeted by Rich Condeelis drilling a double. Condeelis came around for a 5-0 lead when Matt Zielen slapped a ball just past second base that the East mishandled. Tyler McGovern’s single scored Zielen from second for a 6-0 lead. The East got one back in the top of the fourth on Christian Choman’s RBI groundout. Choman played a fine game at first for the East, and didn’t fare poorly when called upon to pitch in the bottom half of the fourth when the West really opened the flood gates. With the bases loaded and only one out, Curt Barbacci’s RBI single started a six-batter procession in which every at-bat ended in a run scored by the West. Zielen, McGovern and Paul Narcum all drove in a run, and Troy Shuritis plated two, driving the West out to a 13-1 lead, essentially closing the door on the East. “The kids today, they were all well schooled, come from good programs and can just hit the ball a ton,” West head coach John Milius said. “I knew we had some power hitters, so I just told them to go for it and let’s see what we can do.” The East tacked on a few more runs in the eighth inning courtesy of an error, a wild pitch and a single from Hanover Area’s Tyler See WEST, Page 4B

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

SAN FRANCISCO — Matt Cain tossed and turned and managed all of about four hours of sleep following his history-making gem for the Giants. Perfectly understandable. Cain’s perfect game will be remembered among the most masterful pitching performances in regular-season baseball history, if not ever. San Francisco’s ace right-hander dominated the Houston Astros every which way Wednesday night in a 10-0 win for the 22nd perfect game ever and the fifth no-hitter already this year. He struck out a career-best 14

MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP

O’s remain hot, double up Bucs The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Steve Pearce homered and drove in a career-high five runs, Matt Wieters had four hits and five RBI, and the Baltimore Orioles cruised past the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-6 Thursday night for a three-game sweep. The only other time Baltimore had two players with at least five RBI was on June 13, 1999, when Cal Ripken had six and Will Clark tallied five in a 22-1 rout of Atlanta. Mark Reynolds went 4 for 5 with a homer for the Orioles, who built a 10-0 lead en route to their fifth straight victory. Much of the damage came against former Oriole Erik Bedard, who yielded seven runs and eight hits in 31⁄3 innings. Phillies, 6, Twins 1

MINNEAPOLIS — Joe Blanton pitched his second complete game of the season and Jim Thome homered for the second day in a row to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a victory over the Minnesota Twins. Blanton (6-6) gave up seven hits and struck out seven while going the distance for the sixth time in his career, snapping an ugly string of five straight starts with at least five runs allowed. Ty Wigginton also homered for the Phillies, who took two of three from a Minnesota team that was unbeaten in its previous four series. Trevor Plouffe homered for the third consecutive day and fifth time in six games for the Twins. Scott Diamond (5-2) gave up four runs and five hits in six innings. Mets 9, Rays 6

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a leadoff homer and later connected for a two-run shot, as the Mets completed a three-game sweep. Jason Bay also homered and Lucas Duda drove in three runs for the Mets, who had been swept in a three-game series by the New York Yankees last weekend. The Mets outscored Tampa Bay 29-9 in this series. Johan Santana (4-3) allowed four runs and six hits over five-plus innings. Frank Francisco struck out Ben Zobrist with the bases loaded on a 3-2 pitch to end it. Nieuwenhuis began the afternoon with a home run off Jeremy Hellickson (4-3). Nieuwenhuis homered again during a four-run fourth, helping the Mets take an 8-4 lead. It was his first career multihomer game.

Tigers 5, Cubs 3

CHICAGO — Justin Verlander pitched eight solid innings for his first win in a month to lead Detroit over Chicago. Austin Jackson hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh and a two-run homer in the ninth for Detroit, which went 4-2 on its interleague road trip through Cincinnati and Chicago. Verlander (6-4) yielded five hits, struck out eight and walked none in his first victory since his one-hitter in a 6-0 victory against Pittsburgh on May 18. Athletics 8, Rockies 2

DENVER — Jarrod Parker allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings and Brandon Moss drove in three runs, helping Oakland to its first road sweep since the end of the 2010 season. Parker (3-3) allowed just three singles before being lifted for a reliever after throwing an efficient 89 pitches. He struck out six and walked just one. Moss has been swinging a hot bat since being brought up from Triple-A Sacramento on June 6. He hit his fifth homer in eight games, a solo shot to right-center in the ninth. Diamondbacks 11, Rangers 3

ARLINGTON, Texas — Jason Kubel and Gerardo Parra homered to back Daniel Hudson’s seven solid innings in Arizona’s victory over the AL West-leading Texas Rangers. The Diamondbacks scored one run while losing the first two games of the series, but led for good in the finale after Kubel’s two-run homer in the second off Scott Feldman (0-6). Parra’s three-run shot off reliever Tanner Scheppers capped a five-run sixth. Miguel Montero added a two-run homer in the ninth. Cardinals 5, White Sox 3

ST. LOUIS — David Freese homered, doubled and drove in three runs, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a victory over the Chicago White Sox. Adam Dunn tied Texas’ Josh Hamilton for the major league home run lead with his 22nd, a three-run shot in the sixth that pulled the White Sox to 5-3. St. Louis had scored one run in three straight games coming in and no more than two in each of the last five.

Appeal could be finalized by today The Mets’ appeal for possible no-hitter for Dickey is a long shot. The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — New York Mets manager Terry Collins expects to hear by today about the long-shot appeal that could give R.A. Dickey a belated no-hitter. Dickey allowed only an infield single Wednesday night in a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, and the team is asking the commissioner’s office to overturn the official scorer’s decision on B.J. Upton’s hit. Two weeks ago, Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in the Mets’ 51-season history. “They’ll have a decision (Friday) I’m sure,” Collins said before Thursday’s game at Tampa Bay. “We’re just taking a shot. What do we have to lose?” MLB executive Joe Torre said he indeed expects to announce his decision Friday. He first wants to review more angles and talk to several other people, including fellow executive Tony La Russa. Torre has reversed some calls by official scorers this year and said he realizes “what’s at stake” with this ruling. “I have an opinion from what I’ve seen,” he said Thursday on a conference call about USA Baseball, without saying which was he was leaning. The speedy Upton hit a high bouncer in the first inning that third baseman David Wright was unable to field with his bare hand. The play was ruled a hit, but the Mets wonder if it should have been called an error on Wright. When asked if the chance of the appeal being successful was five percent, Collins said “less.” “You got a guy who can really run ... you’ve got an outstanding third baseman,” Collins said. “The only way he can make the play is to bare hand it. He knows that and he can’t make it. If he catches with the bare hand, if he makes the play, I don’t know if he’s out or not.” Santana held St. Louis hitless on June 1. Dickey was just as dominant Wednesday in his second career one-hitter. NYC to clean up area near Mets’ stadium NEW YORK — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration has announced an agreement with a group of developers that includes the owners of the New York Mets to clean up and develop a blighted neighborhood next to the team’s stadium. The agreement was announced Thursday. It covers a 20-acre portion of Willets Point in Queens, where Citi Field is located. It calls for developers Related Companies and Sterling Equities to construct a mix of retail, hotel and commercial space in a gritty area made up of auto repair shops and junkyards. Affordable housing units would be constructed. Bloomberg says the $3 billion project will create 12,000 union construction jobs and 7,100 permanent jobs and will generate $4.2 billion in economic activity over the next three decades. Sterling Equities founders Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz own the Mets and Citi Field.

Valley West’s Alexander, headed to Old Dominion University this fall, pitched the fifth and sixth innings. Of the seven batters he faced, one scored a clean hit, two others grounded out and four didn’t get the bat on the ball, falling victim to strikeouts. “It felt good to get up there, to get to see some of these guys again and get everyone together,” Alexander said. “It’s great competition and it feels good to get up there on the mound again. The season didn’t end the way I wanted it to, but, this is a good way to end the year.”

Armstrong could be stripped of the Tour titles he won from 1999 to 2005 and banned from cycling, though he retired from the sport last year. USADA says that blood samples from 2009 and 2010 are consistent with performance-enhancing drug use and that more than 10 former Armstrong teammates and support personnel will testify they saw him use drugs or talk about using them. USADA has said it will not release the names of witnesses at this stage to protect them against possible attempts at intimidation. The 40-year-old Armstrong was training for a June 24 triath-

Cain (8-2) threw19 firstpitch strikes and never faced a 2-0 count in winning his career-high seventh straight start. “I’m still pumped,” said Cain, who was back on the field playing catch with fellow starter Madison Bumgarner by 10:15 a.m. Thursday after a workout. “I haven’t really had a ton of time to sit down and look over stuff, see how it all happened. I don’t know that it has hit me yet, maybe when I can sit down and watch the highlights, go over the game.” Add in a pair of improbable catches by Melky Cabrera and Gregor Blanco to preserve the bid, and Cain wound up with the first perfect game in the fran-

SAN FRANCISCO – Phil Mickelson lost a ball in the trees on his first swing Thursday, hit a spectator on another and spent more time in the rough than the fairway. Playing partner Bubba Watson looked even more lost at The Olympic Club, nearly shooting the 80 he feared he might put up early in the week. Such lack of precision cost both dearly in the first round of the U.S. Open. Five-time Open runner-up Mickelson opened with a 6-over 76, and Masters champion Watson had a 78. It was a stark contrast to the way the third member of the group, Tiger Woods, methodically moved from Point A to Point B in shooting a 69 on the tight, twisting Lake Course. “It beat me up,” Masters champ Watson lamented. “It’s winning by eight right now.” Mickelson bogeyed the first three holes. “I didn’t play well, obviously,” Mickelson said. “You could see that.” It started with his first swing, when he hit 3-wood on No. 9 — his opening hole because of Olympic’s logistics. He snap-

endless photos of a ball sitting in the tree like a bird’s egg. But there was no way to identify it, or even determine if it was Mickelson’s ball. For all anyone knew, the ball could have been there since 1998, the last time the U.S. Open was played at Olympic. Mickelson abandoned his search after 5 minutes and went back to the tee. Joe Ogilvie was already waiting to tee off because of the delay. “Not a good way to start the tournament,” Ogilvie said. “I’m just glad the USGA official had the foresight not to say, ‘Now playing his third shot ....”’ Mickelson salvaged bogey, but then couldn’t recover. “I just let it continue,” said Mickelson, who hit eight of 18 greens in regulation and seven of 14 fairways. “Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get it stopped.” Mickelson birdied the par-3 13th —his fifth hole — but that was it. His three-putt from 10 feet on No. 4 started another bogey-bogey run. “I fought hard for a while there trying to keep it a few over,” Mickelson said. “Three-putting (No.) 4 really hurt because I probably tried to get a little aggressive. I felt like I needed one birdie there. But it was a tough

ing it would make him look silly and shoot 80. He wasn’t far off at 78. He hit only five fairways and eight greens, and made seven bogeys and a double. His only birdie came on the short par-5 17th. He missed the fairway on his first drive, couldn’t advance it far and took bogey. He followed with a bogey at No. 11 after another bad swing. But Olympic’s closing stretch did him in Thursday, including a

going.” Watson said. “Never got any rhythm. Everything was just a little off.” At least Watson was crowdpleasing with the pink driver he regularly pulled while the others went with irons, 3-woods or hybrids off the tee. Watson even hit driver again on his second shot on the monster, 660-yard par-5 16th. But his sand wedge approach from the rough rolled off the green, resulting in another bogey.

Duke leads quintet of Chiefs on hill in 10-0 shutout The Times Leader staff

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Zach Duke tossed 52⁄3 innings to lead five Syracuse Chiefs pitchers in a shutout victory over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, 10-0, at Alliance Bank Stadium on Thursday. Duke improved to 7-3 on the season, allowing six hits while walking just one and striking out six. The loss marked the seventh time the Yankees have been shutout this season, as the Chiefs scattered eight hits, including seven singles. Yankees starting pitcher Adam

lon in France, but was banned Wednesday when the new allegations were announced. He said Thursday he was returning to the United States, then decided to stay with hopes that triathlon officials would change their mind. Jessica Weidensall, spokeswoman for World Triathlon Corp., which runs the Ironman competition, said race officials would announce an update on Armstrong’s status on Friday. Luskin’s letter notes that the blood samples collected in 2009 and 2010 — when Armstrong came out of retirement to race again in the Tour — didn’t result in positive drug tests at the time. “As you well know ... he successfully passed every test administered to him during that period,” Luskin wrote. Pierre Bordry, who headed the French anti-doping agency from

2004-10, said the USADA action was important to help defend the image of the Tour de France. “It shows there’s no amnesty,” said Bordry, who presided over the agency, known as the AFLD, during one of the most scandalridden eras in the long history of doping on the Tour. He said that among nearly all of the top cyclists during Armstrong’s era, “he’s the only one who was never penalized. Maybe he did nothing wrong, but it needs to be shown.” “The worst thing is to not resolve the problems. Either he doped or he didn’t, but we have to have the answer,” he said. “I think the American agency wants to show — as it has with several other athletes — that the United States, like other countries, fights against doping. It’s a strong signal.”

chise’s storied 130-year history and its 14th no-hitter. He threw 125 pitches — most ever in a perfect game — and 86 of those for strikes. Seven of his strikeouts were called. He didn’t shake off catcher Buster Posey even once. They were in sync on this memorable evening, all right. “It’s something I always wanted to do since I was little, but it’s kind of a blur when it actually happens,” Cain said. Cain followed up Bumgarner’s 12-strikeout night Tuesday, and they became the first Giants pitchers to record consecutive double-digit strikeout games since Vida Blue and John Montefusco in May 1978. “Things like this bring a team together even more,” San Francisco skipper Bruce Bochy said. “That’s the first one I’ve seen. It was an incredible night. Matt was going about it like a normal game. That last at-bat he sprinted to first

base and I yelled, ‘Hey, take it easy.’ But he always plays the game hard.” Team President and CEO Larry Baer and the rest of the brass must have been pinching themselves in delight that they decided to reward the two-time AllStar with a $127.5 million, sixyear contract days before the season began — the richest for a right-hander. The 27-year-old Cain showed glimpses of his potential for perfection in consecutive starts in mid-April. There was a one-hitter against Pittsburgh in the home opener, then nine shutout innings against Cliff Lee and the Phillies in a 1-0, 11-inning Giants victory his next time out — a memorable game in which the aces combined to throw 19 scoreless innings. Yet even Giants Hall of Famers Carl Hubbell, Christy Mathewson, Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry hadn’t accomplished what Cain did Wednesday.

Warren (4-4) suffered the loss for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and had his scoreless innings streak snapped at 171⁄3. The right-hander allowed four runs on seven hits, while walking three and striking out two. Every Chiefs starter had a hit, eight Syracuse players scored at least one run and seven Chiefs drove in at least one run in a balanced offensive attack against four Yankees pitchers. Syracuse (32-34) exploded for five runs in the top of the sixth inning off of Scranton/WilkesBarre reliever Manny Delcarmen – four of which were unearned.

Shortstop Seth Bynum provided the first run for the Chiefs with a two-run triple and left fielder Erik Komatsu followed with an RBI single to right. Designated hitter Xavier Paul capped the five-run sixth inning with a twoRBI single to center making it a 9-0 advantage for the Chiefs. Right fielder Brett Carroll provided the final run for Syracuse in the ninth inning with a solo shot over the left-center field wall. The Chiefs took an early lead with two runs in the second inning and two more in the fourth off Warren.

OLYMPIC

three of them birdies — and closed his dream round with a 10foot birdie putt on the short, tough 18th for the lead. Thompson took only 22 putts. “On the back side, the putter ... seems like every putt went in the hole,” said Thompson, a 27-yearold playing his first U.S. Open as a pro. “Got a little nervous there once all those cameras showed up. It’s always a little bit of an adjustment. In that sense, I kind of wish I was Phil or Tiger, because you get the cameras from the beginning.” There weren’t enough cameras or fans to find Mickelson’s opening tee shot, but it was easy to find Woods. He missed only four fairways — three of them that ran off the severe slopes and into the first cut, the other into a bunker on the 256-yard seventh hole, which is where he was aiming. The only glitch was failing to get the ball closer to the hole with short irons, including the 14th when it landed on the back of the green and bounced off the base of the grandstand. That led to one of his two bogeys, the other at No. 6 with a poor bunker shot. The only surprise was a good one — the 35foot birdie putt on the fifth that he struck too hard and worried it might lead to a three-putt until the hole got in the way. “Five was a fluke,” Woods said. “That putt was off the green.” Olympic wasn’t that simple for most everyone else. Watson was asked about his strategy of hitting his pink-painted driver. “I shot 8 over, so not very good,” he said. The next question was how he played out of the rough with short irons in his hand. “I shot 8 over, so not very good,” he said. “You could answer these yourself,” he said. A marine layer in the morning

The good news for McIlroy? His record is safe here. “Anything just a little off and it really punishes you,” McIlroy said. “You have to be precise with your tee shots and your iron shots and leave it on the right side of the pins, and today I didn’t really do any of that.” Nick Watney holed out from the fairway for an albatross 2 on the par-5 17th hole, sending him to a 69. Graeme McDowell, who won the U.S. Open two years ago down the coast at Pebble Beach, and Justin Rose had 69 in the faster conditions of afternoon. David Toms shot his 69 in the morning, relying on a solid short game and a good attitude. “You really just have to concentrate, give it your all on every shot and never give in to the golf course, because it will punish you if your attitude is not good, if your concentration is not good,” Toms said. “There’s just too many hard shots out there to really ever give in to it and not be there.” The group at 70 included Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar and 17-yearold Beau Hossler, already playing in his second U.S. Open. Thompson’s game seems to work on this quirky, tree-lined course built on the side of a giant dune that separates the Pacific Ocean from Lake Merced. He was runner-up in the 2007 U.S. Amateur at Olympic Club and couldn’t wait to get back. After a roller coaster of a front nine that featured consecutive bogeys and holing a bunker shot for birdie on the downhill par-3 third hole, Thompson hit his stride on the back nine, even if hardly anyone was watching. He made five consecutive 3s —

allowed for cool, overcast conditions that eventually gave way to sunshine. That didn’t help. Steve Marino opened with an 84. Zach Johnson didn’t feel as though he played all that badly until he signed for a 77. Padraig Harrington thought the course was fair, and allowed for good scores. But he had two four-putts and a threeputt that ruined a reasonable day and gave him a 74. “It just goes to show that firm greens scare the life out of professional golfers,” Harrington said. Mickelson was looking forward to playing with Woods — the last time they were together, Lefty closed with a 64 and buried him at Pebble Beach in February — but he could not have envisioned a worse start. The hook was bad enough. But as Mickelson approached the gallery and looked for a crowd surrounding his ball, his eyes widened when a marshal told him, “No one heard it come down.” Mickelson made an unlikely bogey on the hole, added two more bogeys and was fighting the rest of the day. A three-putt late in the round cost him dearly, and now Mickelson can only hope he’s around for the weekend. “I can’t really think about the lead or anything,” said Mickelson, who was 10 shots behind. “I’ve just got to make the cut right now, and to do that I’ve got to shoot something under par.” Woods is coming off his second win of the year at Memorial, and while that made him the favorite at the U.S. Open, recent history left some questions. He won Bay Hill by five shots going into the Masters, and then had his worst performance as a pro at Augusta National. Woods said he wasn’t hitting the ball as consistently well in the spring, not like he is now. And it showed.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Five-times world rowing champion Mahe Drysdale says his London Olympics campaign remains on track though he was injured when struck by a car while cycling in Germany this week. Drysdale told Radio New Zealand he injured a shoulder and hip in the accident that occured as he was preparing to compete at a World Cup event in Germany. He said he won’t take part in that event but “it won’t affect my preparation for racing at the Olympics.” Drysdale was the favorite to win the men’s single sculls event at the 2008 Beijing Olympics but suffered a severe stomach ailment in the days before the race, finishing third and collapsing with dehydration after crossing the finish line.

Unknown Stony Brook ready for CWS opener By ERIC OLSON AP Sports Writer

OMAHA, Neb. — South Carolina is going for three straight national titles and Florida is the No. 1 seed. Yet all the talk at the College World Series is about Stony Brook and Kent State. Now that these upstarts have crashed the party, what will they do? The Seawolves of Stony Brook have gotten the rock-star treatment since their stunning super-regional victory at LSU and undoubtedly will be the fan favorites when they open Friday against No. 2 national seed UCLA (47-14). “People just want to hang out with us for some reason,” center fielder Travis Jankowski said Thursday. “I don’t know why. They just love us.” With apologies to Kent State, the Seawolves have become the feel-good story of the summer in sports. They’re the first team from the Northeast since 1986 to make it to college baseball’s biggest stage. They’re here as a No. 4 regional seed, the lowest of the

low, even though they won a nationleading 52 games against just 13 losses. The last No. 4 to make it was Fresno State in 2008, and the Bulldogs ended up winning the national title. While Jankowski was preparing to take batting practice during the Seawolves’ public workout, staff ace Tyler Johnson was leaning against a wall between the clubhouse and dugout doing a photo shoot with ESPN. “Pure craziness,” Johnson told a passer-by. “I’ve never had my picture taken so many times.” The Seawolves will send Johnson (12-1) to the mound against Adam Plutko (11-3). Kent State (46-18), the first MidAmerican Conference team to play in the CWS since Eastern Michigan in 1976, opens Saturday against Arkansas (44-20).

Sandusky’s ring on e-Bay

It’s come to this: Sandusky memorabilia has hit eBay. What’s advertised as Jerry Sandusky’s 1986 Penn State Championship ring has been accumulating bids since it hit eBay Thursday. In messages through eBay, the seller said he bought the ring from a memorabilia dealer three or four years ago. "I had no idea who the ring was from when I initially purchased it. The identity was never told to me, but I am a tremendous Penn State fan and when I saw the name, I was amazed," seller Spongebob1616 said. "I’ve met Jerry on several occasions, and was briefly a member of the Penn State football team when I was a freshman. I was simply looking for a unique piece of PSU memorabilia, and as it turned out, I fell into something much bigger than I had anticipated." Sandusky, 68, is charged with 52 counts stemming from alleged abuse of 10 boys over a 15-year span. His trial in Centre County, home of Penn State, enters its fifth day Friday. By Thursday afternoon, the ring had 13 bids, the highest being $630.

An inside pitch to Cleveland Indians starter Derek Lowe and comments he made afterward about Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker have the Reds manager, above, riled up.

Inside pitch has meaning By JOE KAY AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI — An inside pitch to Indians starter Derek Lowe — and comments he made afterward about Dusty Baker — have the Reds manager riled up. Cincinnati starter Mat Latos threw an inside fastball to Lowe during the fifth inning of Cincinnati’s 5-3 win on Wednesday night. Lowe gestured toward Baker, who shook his finger back at him. Lowe hit Brandon Phillips with a pitch in the bottom of the inning, and both benches were warned. Lowe suggested after the game that the inside fastball was a payback for a personal issue between him and Baker from a few years ago. Lowe wouldn’t talk about the issue. Lowe said he has “zero respect for the guy,” and suggested reporters should ask Baker about the matter. Baker became angry when addressing Lowe’s comments before the final game of the intrastate series on Thursday morning, saying the pitcher had it wrong. He also dropped a hint about the nature of the issue. “He don’t respect himself because the word was that whatever he did and said, there was probably a good chance he was drinking at the ballpark at that time three or four years ago, so he don’t remember what he said or what he did, OK?” Baker said with an edge to his voice. Baker acknowledged having Latos

throw inside to Lowe, but said it didn’t involve any personal issue between the two of them. Rather, it was retaliation for Lowe hitting Joey Votto in the back during a 2009 game at Great American Ball Park, when Lowe was with Atlanta. “I’m not denying nothing,” Baker said. “I didn’t order anybody to hit him, but I told him to buzz him and make him uncomfortable. That’s what happened. Understand what I’m saying? Nobody hit him. But then he hit our guy. “And what he was talking about was something that he said and did a few years ago. You’ve got to ask him what that was. Understand? And he got a lot of people involved in the situation that didn’t need to be involved.” Baker declined to be any more specific about it, leaving that up to Lowe. “Since he’s such a big man, wants to run his mouth, tell him to run his mouth about himself,” Baker said. Baker said that when Lowe looked at him in the dugout after the inside pitch, he waved his finger back to send a message about hitting Votto. “That means don’t mess with me or my team, that’s what that means,” Baker said. When Lowe arrived at Great American Ball Park on Thursday before the final game of the series, a12-5 Reds win, he was called into a meeting with manager Manny Acta. Lowe said he was aware of Baker’s response, but wasn’t going to say anything more.

BROOKLYN, Mich. — After four drivers posted laps of over 200 mph during a morning test session, Greg Biffle was asked if the fast new track at Michigan International Speedway might be good for the sport. “Certainly this doesn’t hurt us,” Biffle said. “We don’t want to kill anybody, either, so we’ve got to walk that fine line of killing people and creating excitement.” After being repaved in the offseason, the two-mile track at MIS was the talk of the Sprint Cup drivers Thursday. A NASCAR official said after the morning session he expected speeds to decrease before too long, but that didn’t happen in the afternoon. After four drivers exceeded 200 mph in the morning, seven did it during the second test session, including Tony Stewart, who set the day’s standard at 201.896 mph. The track record for qualifying is 194.232 mph, set by Ryan Newman in 2005. All 43 drivers surpassed that speed Thursday afternoon. Qualifying is Saturday for Sunday’s 400-mile race. “What we saw this morning is probably, for speed, the best shape that the track will be in. As they continue to run and lay down rubber, and the other series that will run here throughout the weekend, the grooves will widen out,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR’s vice president for competition. “Maybe qualifying will get back to there, maybe. But for the most part, it will continue to slow down from here.” Pemberton said restrictor plates weren’t in the plans. “We have equipment with us every-

Seattle rally draws thousands By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE — Chris Hansen walked on stage and was greeted with the kind of reception normally reserved for the musicians and athletes who were waiting backstage. Hedge-fund managers don’t normally get rock star ovations. “I was about to tear up actually. It was inspiring,” Hansen said. While former SuperSonics stars Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp got the loudest ovations, it was Hansen left accepting the most praise at a rally in downtown Seattle on Thursday afternoon to support the push for a new arena that could eventually bring back the NBA. The late-day rally crammed green and gold clad fans into Occidental Park just a few blocks north of Seattle’s stadium dis-

trict where CenturyLink and Safeco fields currently sit. Hansen’s proposal before the King County and Seattle city councils calls for a $490 million facility just south of the Mariners’ Safeco Field with nearly $300 million in private investment. Hansen said he was overwhelmed by the turnout, with estimates of about 4,000 in attendance at the peak of the event. The rally ended with chants of “Thank you Chris!” and included appearances by Payton, Kemp and fellow former Sonics player Detlef Schrempf. “ Jerseys from every generation of the Sonics past were on display as fans dug deep in their closets to pull out old uniforms with the names “Durant,” “Payton,” “Kemp,” “Sikma,” “Brown,” even a Sarunas Marciulionis jersey from his one season with the Sonics in 1994-95.

where we go,” he said. “But no, we’re not looking for plates here.” The quick track is one of several subplots heading into the weekend. Kurt Busch is back from a one-week suspension for verbally abusing a media member. This also is the fourth anniversary of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s most recent win, which was in Michigan on June 15, 2008. The Sprint Cup was at Pocono last weekend, another recently repaved track. That race included a flurry of pit stop speeding penalties. There were 22 violations Sunday, stretching from Jimmie Johnson to J.J. Yeley. Drivers and crew chiefs were confused, and some insisted there had to be a malfunction in the timing loops that track speed. “I don’t think I have had a clear explanation following the race,” Johnson said. “It would be nice to have pit road speeds broadcast so that we could try to understand where and why and how we get in trouble.” This weekend, it’s the speeds on the track that will be interesting to watch. No driver on this series has qualified at over 200 mph since Bill Elliott in 1987 at Talladega. “We feel it. In this generation of driver, racing safety measures have taken off a huge portion of that,” Johnson said. “When you are in the car, there’s moments your senses tell you where your car is and if you can push harder or not. If you are lucky enough to feel the uncomfortable balance before it takes off, you can scare yourself a few times prior to crashing. “If you don’t feel it or it happens too quickly, usually when you are sideways is when the fear hits you.”

From our wire services

DALLAS -- Pennsylvania Game Commission executive director Carl G. Roe announced that Daniel Figured has been named the director of the agency’s Northeast Region on Thursday. Figured, who previously served as the Northeast Region law enforcement supervisor, fills the vacancy created when Steve J. Schweitzer retired on April 13. "Dan is a highly qualified officer who has demonstrated the necessary skills and leadership for the position,” Roe said. “We have every confidence that Dan will do an exceptional job." As region director, Figured will be responsible for all Game Commission information and education programs and wildlife protection activities in the agency’s 13-county Northeast Region. He also will oversee the habitat improvement projects and all other land management activities on the nearly 367,000 acres of State Game Lands in the region from his Dallas office.

A graduate of the 23rd Class of the Game Commission’s Ross Leffler School of Conservation, Figured was assigned to a wildlife conservation officer district in Delaware County in 1996. In 2006, Figured was promoted to Northeast Region law enforcement supervisor. During his career with the Game Commission, Figured has been recognized for his service by being named the Northeast Region nominee for the Shikar-Safari Wildlife Officer of Year in 2000, and the Conservation Law Enforcement Chiefs Association Wildlife Officer of the Year in 2003. Prior to joining the Game Commission full time, Figured served as a deputy wildlife conservation officer in Lackawanna County. A native of Scranton, Figured graduated from West Scranton High School. He also earned a bachelor’s degree in agriculture science from Pennsylvania State University. He currently resides in Olyphant. The agency’s Northeast Region is comprised of: Bradford, Carbon, Columbia, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Pike, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming counties.

son with a torn ACL in his right knee. While he received a Super Bowl ring, not playing for a year was tough. “I have a different motivation, a fire that is pushing me more than any of these guys,” Thomas said. “I missed the whole year. I don’t have time to hang out in the weight room. I am always working out and trying to get better in some fashion because once you lose football, you get so much time to reflect on what you could have been doing or how you could have gotten better. It pushes me.” The 27-year-old Thomas seemingly was destined for star-

dom in 2011, coming off consecutive seasons in which he led the Giants in tackles, interceptions and passes defended. It all changed in the second week of the preseason, though, in a 41-13 rout over the Chicago Bears. Thomas suffered a major knee injury on a play in the closing seconds of the half and saw his season end. Surgery and rehabilitation would follow, and Thomas even faced the prospect of free agency after the season before re-signing with the Giants. He took part in the offseason training program and attended the minicamp, although the Giants refused to let him take part in the team drills.

PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick has something to prove. So does Andy Reid. These Philadelphia Eagles aren’t the talk of the NFL the way they were last summer. After failing miserably to live up to enormous expectations and their own “Dream Team” label, the Eagles know they have to earn respect. The team completed its threeday minicamp Thursday and anxiously awaits the start of training camp next month. Momentum from that fourgame winning streak to close out last season at 8-8 seems to have carried over into all the offseason workouts. Players and coaches are all optimistic they’ve got the right group to make a Super Bowl run. Time will tell. “I love the energy and mindset right now,” Reid said. “For nine weeks, these guys have been coming in here and grinding it. I want that to carry over to training camp. This is going to be a tough training camp for them. I’ve talked to the team about that. It’s going to be a demanding training camp, and from now until we get up there, they need to keep themselves in

the shape that they’re in right now.” Reid enters his 14th season as head coach. He’s led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles, five “I’m going NFC chamto prove mypionship games and self and get one Super Bowl. But myself back he’s under in the top 20 the micronext year … scope more than ever. I feel like I’m Two days afone of the ter last season ended, best at what owner Jef- I do. frey Lurie Michael Vick admitted he Eagles QB gave serious thought to firing Reid before explaining in detail his reasons for retaining him. That means Reid has to win now or else. The pressure doesn’t appear to bother him. He was in a friendlier mood this week, smiling more often and even joking around with reporters. “I always have fun. I don’t always show you that I’m having fun, but I’m having fun,” Reid said. “I love every day that I have a chance to do this, even this right here (with the media). I’m enjoying the personality of this team right now and I like how they’ve approached things. We have a ton to work on.”

Belichick Ravens LB Suggs still cancels last expects to play in ‘12 practice By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick sent the team home early from minicamp with an extra day off and a message: This is not summer vacation. Belichick canceled the last practice of the three-day workout on Thursday, a surprise for the defending AFC champions as they headed out to the field. But the coaching staff and the veterans have been reminding the younger players that they need to come back in shape when training camp starts in July. “We all need the work, man,” receiver Deion Branch, who is entering his 11th season. “When you think you’re that good, shut it down, discontinue training. We’re not that good. We’re not where we want to be. We need to work.” A day after receiving their AFC championship rings — an event Belichick called “bittersweet” — the coach gave his players another present. Players were not ready to conclude that it was a reward for getting their work done in the first two sessions. “You’ll have to ask Bill on that,” linebacker Bobby Carpenter said. “Maybe he was so mad everyone was doing so poorly he wanted to get us out of here. You’ll have to ask him why he does the things he does. I’m not trying to get inside his mind.” A few minutes earlier, Belichick told reporters: “I feel like we’ve gotten a lot done but we still have a long way to go. Hopefully we’ll be ready to go to training camp, this is really what this is all about, to prepare all of us for the start of training camp.” Branch said he would tell the rookies that they need to manage the balance between resting up for a long season, and staying sharp for it. “Get the proper rest. Stay in the playbook. Continue training. I think that’s most important now,” he said. “Don’t take the next five weeks and try to vacation for three and work out for the last two. It doesn’t work that way.” Quarterback Tom Brady said this week that minicamp was a way for players to gauge where they are in their preparation.

Eagles look forward to camp

Talented defensive back missed the Giants’ Super Bowl run due to an injury.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tom Coughlin didn’t waste a lot of time talking to the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants after their minicamp ended. His comments Thursday lasted roughly just over three minutes, and the advice was the same he has given for decades. Enjoy the next six weeks, work out, lift some weights and be ready for the start of training camp July 27 at the University at Albany. Of course, there was the obligatory stay-out-of-trouble warning, which this team probably didn’t need in the wake of tackle David Diehl’s arrest on Sunday for impaired driving. After the meeting, many players rushed to their lockers, changed and left. Even though he was leaving, too, cornerback Terrell Thomas wasn’t in a hurry. Being back was fun after missing all of last sea-

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs walks away after speaking at a news conference at the team’s practice facility in Owings Mills, Md., on Thursday.

After being the AP Defensive November return would be the Player of the Year, he hopes absolute best scenario. “When we did the timetable, to return by November. you kind of look at the month

By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — When he tore his right Achillies tendon in April, Terrell Suggs spoke optimistically about returning to the Baltimore Ravens as soon as November. The five-time Pro Bowl linebacker had surgery on May 8 and recently discarded his crutches, yet the slow pace of his rehabilitation has made him realize that he will almost certainly be sidelined longer than originally anticipated. “We’re just going to see where we land,” Suggs said Thursday after the team’s final minicamp session. “Maybe we were shooting too far. We’ll see.” Suggs had14 sacks last season in helping the Ravens reach the AFC title game. He was voted The Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year and invited to the Pro Bowl. Suggs has played in all 16 games in eight of his nine NFL seasons, missing three games in 2009 with a knee injury. But this year will be decided different. Suggs, 29, knows he’s going to miss several months, and that a

and I was like, ‘Oh, I could be back by then.’ But I’m not a doctor,” he said. “It feels good now, I guess. I will be in a Baltimore Ravens uniform in 2012. The only question is when.” Suggs said initially that he sustained the injury during an offseason conditioning drill, but there were reports that he hurt himself playing basketball in Arizona. Even though the Ravens say he will get his full salary in 2012 regardless of how the injury occurred, Suggs insists the torn tendon did not happen while he was on a basketball court. “You all that know me know when I said what happened, that’s exactly what happened,” he said. “It was kind of upsetting and frustrating. But we’re talking about two different incidents. I didn’t get hurt” playing basketball. Walking in a protective boot and watching his teammates practice was agonizing for Suggs. “This is a very unfamiliar feeling for me,” he said. “I used to dread this. ‘Oh my God, I have minicamp. You have to go back and go in the sun.’ But now, I’ve never appreciated it so much be-

cause I’ve never had to sit and watch my brothers go to battle without me. So it’s definitely frustrating. It’s going to be a learning experience for me.” Instead of honing his passrushing skills, he’s working on following doctor’s orders. It has not been fun, but it’s all he’s got. “It is tough because like I said, I’ve never sat out before,” Suggs said. “But you got to know your body. They constantly keep trying to tell me, ‘Rehab and rest. Work as hard as you can.’ Right now, rehab is my football skill. Until I master it, I won’t be out there again so I’m definitely go-

ing to try to become an All-Pro at that ASAP.” Coach John Harbaugh said Suggs has done his best to be part of the team. “He’s in every meeting,” Harbaugh said. “I talk to him all the time. He’s part of everything we’re doing except practice.” Suggs believes the Ravens will survive without him, just as they did last season when middle linebacker Ray Lewis missed a month with a foot injury.

Some insiders say the departure of Joe Banner, who stepped down as president last week, has contributed significantly to Reid’s pleasant demeanor. Though Lurie insisted that Banner, his longtime close friend, chose to leave to pursue other opportunities, speculation about a power struggle with Reid persisted. Regardless, Reid and the Eagles have to win now, especially after the 4-8 start last year. “I think we’ve been so close to having a lot of success,” wide receiver DeSean Jackson said. “I think it’s at our fingertips now. We just want to all be able to start early, not even just right now, but before when we came here in April and May, training down to June. You don’t win Super Bowls in February, you win them in the offseason and that’s something we’re realizing and that we know. “So, we’re all just putting in the work.” Vick is coming off a subpar year after going to the Pro Bowl in 2010. The dynamic quarterback ranked 70th in the NFL Network’s Top 100 players list, and he noticed. “I’m going to prove myself and get myself back in the top 20 next year,” he said. “Obviously, I pay attention to it, but I’m a competitor. I feel like I’m one of the best at what I do. It’s somebody else’s opinion, and I have to prove them wrong and make them say otherwise.”

Titans top pick injured The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans’ top draft pick Kendall Wright left practice early Thursday after hurting his shoulder diving for a ball. Tennessee coach Mike Munchak says he expects the No. 20th pick overall to be sore, though the Titans still planned to run tests on the receiver to be sure. “His shoulder is sore from falling on it,” Munchak said. “He went for a ball, trying to make a play. That is sort of in his DNA, to try and catch every ball. That is one he probably should’ve just let go. You don’t want anyone to get hurt obviously, but from what we can tell it is not something that is going to be long-term.” Jake Locker threw the pass and took blame for throwing a bad ball that went inside. “Always hate to see a guy get injured trying to make a play he made a great effort at it and you just hope it’s nothing too serious,” Locker said. Wright is the only Titans’ draft pick still unsigned. The receiver from Baylor was not in the locker room after the team’s final organized team activity. “He’s just talented,” Locker said of Wright. “He’s explosive. He’s really good at interpreting the game, interpreting how you want to run a play.” The Titans have their minicamp next week, but Wright may be held out just to make sure he’s ready for training camp.

Unlimited talk, text and more

Kings celebrate Stanley Cup with parade, rally

Coaches can reach out and touch recruits electronically as much as they want. By LUKE MEREDITH AP Sports Writer

Coaches can now pick up their smartphones without trepidation. Starting Friday, Division I men’s basketball coaches will be able to send unlimited texts and make unlimited calls to recruits who have wrapped up their sophomore year of high school. The NCAA will also allow coaches to send private messages to prospective players through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. It all means that sending a recruit an LOL (laugh out loud) will no longer get you a TTYL (talk to you later) from the NCAA. The NCAA is allowing coaches to text, tweet and talk to their hearts’ content because, as Missouri athletic director Mike Alden put it, the organization “recognized the evolving nature of communication with students.” In essence, coaches can finally get with the times without getting into trouble. “I really believe it will help. I’m excited about it. And I think it’s going to be good, more so than the texts, just the ability to call and making sure to have that direct verbal communication,” Memphis coach Josh Pastner said. The new rule was adopted by the Division I Board of Directors last October after being recommended by its leadership council. The NCAA realized that coaches were having a tougher time than ever building relationships with recruits who already know their way around social media and then some. What was even more worrisome was that while coaches had their thumbs tied behind their backs, third parties were using new technology to get to recruits more easily than ever. “Now instead of going around people to get to the kid or the parents, you can call them directly. I think that’s a very valid point as to why they made the rule change,” first-year Illinois coach John Groce said. But just because a coach can call and text a kid at will doesn’t mean he should. Knowing when to contact a recruit and when to back off could be the tricky side of this new policy. Creighton coach Greg McDermott has a unique perspective on the matter, having seen recruiting from the side of a coach at Northern Iowa, Iowa State and Creighton and as the father of current Jays star Doug McDermott. Greg McDermott said that the main objective for his staff is to get to know each recruit and their family inside and out. Some will undoubtedly get a kick out of all the extra attention, while others will be turned off by it. “I think I’m probably still on the fence,” McDermott said of the new rules. “It can be a disruptive process if you allow it to become that. So I think it’s going to become really important for our staff to make sure we do our due diligence in researching each individual and each family.” With these new guidelines, the NCAA has essentially legalized the activity that got former Oklahoma and Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson bounced from the college game a few years back. But all coaches have had to walk a tightrope of monitoring phone calls made by themselves and their staff to recruits, and the new rules should help them breathe easier. “You know, honestly I think it’s just too hard to keep track of,” West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said. “If you can’t legislate it, if you can’t enforce it then you probably ought to just go ahead and make it legal. I think that’s kind of what happened with Prohibition.”

Los Angeles gets its first visit from Lord Stanley after 45 seasons of NHL hockey. By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — Dustin Brown stood on a flatbed truck and raised the big silver trophy above his head once again. The air in downtown Los Angeles filled with a blizzard of silver-andblack confetti. The Los Angeles Kings are Stanley Cup champions for the first time, and a celebration 45 years in the making certainly appeared to be worth the wait. The Kings rode double-decker buses and flatbed trucks in a parade through the city center, moving slowly up Figueroa Street past thousands of roaring fans. Brown and playoff MVP Jonathan Quick then raised the Cup outside Staples Center, where the Kings completed their 16-4 rampage through the post-

It’s amazing to hear all the support, and to put faces to the cheers we’ve heard all year.” The Kings gathered inside the arena for a packed rally, with fans waving towels and giving repeated standing ovations to every speaker. Coach Darryl Sutter even pumped up the fans with a series of joyously out-of-character fist pumps, and forward Anze Kopitar riled them up even more. “It’s too much fun not to win it again, so let’s go get it,” Kopitar said. Quick, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner, then cracked up the crowd with profane praise of his teammates in a ceremony running live on local TV. But even amid the pomp and profanity of a major party, the Kings’ affection for each other broke through.

an elimination game, only getting stretched even to Game 6 once, and only trailed for about 184 minutes in the entire postseason. The Kings finished third in the Pacific Division, albeit only two points behind winner Phoenix, and didn’t clinch a playoff berth until right before their 81st game. They were the NHL’s lowest-scoring team for most of the regular season before getting it together in late February around the time Jeff Carter arrived in a trade with Columbus. After appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday, the Cup made its way on Wednesday to Dodger Stadium, where the Dodgers and Angels posed with the Kings for a remarkable photo before every hockey player threw out a first pitch. On Wednesday night, the Cup ended up at a popular stage show in Hollywood’s historic Roosevelt Hotel, where David Beckham and Chuck Liddell joined in the celebration.

Stanford will get 110 years in prison

B R I E F

N.Y. gas leases reopened

A subsidiary of Chesapeake Energy Corp. has agreed to let more than 4,400 New York landowners renegotiate old gas leases for more favorable financial and environmental terms, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Thursday. Chesapeake Appalachia also agreed to pay $250,000 to cover the state’s investigation costs under the agreement. The leases were signed long before the shale gas boom that began in Pennsylvania in 2007 boosted land prices from as low as $2-$3 an acre to more than $1,500 an acre.

By JUAN A. LOZANO Associated Press

HOUSTON — Former jetsetting Texas tycoon R. Allen Stanford, whose financial empire once spanned the Americas, was sentenced Thursday to 110 years in Stanford prison for bilking investors out of more than $7 billion over 20 years in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in U.S. history. U.S. District Judge David Hittner handed down the sentence during a court hearing in which two people spoke on behalf of Stanford’s investors about how his fraud had affected their lives. Prosecutors had asked that Stanford be sentenced to 230 years in prison, the maximum sentence possible after a jury convicted the one-time billionaire in March on 13 of 14 fraud-related counts. Stanford’s convictions on conspiracy, wire and mail fraud charges followed a sevenweek trial. Stanford’s attorneys had asked for a maximum of 41 months, a sentence he could have completed within about five months because he has been jailed since his arrest in June 2009. During Thursday’s sentencing hearing, Stanford, 62, gave a rambling statement to the court in which he denied he did anything wrong. Speaking for more than 40 minutes, Stanford said he was a scapegoat and blamed the federal government and a U.S.-appointed receiver who took over his companies for tearing down his business empire and preventing his investors from getting any of their money back. Prosecutor William Stellmach chastised Stanford for his lack of remorse for defrauding thousands of people of their life savings. “To the bitter end, he was a con man and a coward,” Stellmach said during the hearing.

AIG pays bailout loan

Beleaguered insurance giant American International Group has repaid all of its bailout loans from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The New York Fed said Thursday that AIG repaid loans totaling $53.12 billion, with interest. The insurance company has slimmed down its operations, closed down many of its loss-making divisions and has been profitable for two years. The Treasury Department, meanwhile, still owns about 60 percent of AIG’s common stock and has been selling its shares in chunks. Treasury has recovered $18 billion of the $68 billion it gave to AIG.

Latest twist: A home shortage By ALEJANDRO LAZO Los Angeles Times

Bing adds Yelp reviews

LOS ANGELES -- The newest problem for the slowly improving housing market isn’t a shortage of serious buyers, it’s a shortage of good homes. In some parts of the nation, would-be buyers are packing open houses and scrambling to make offers on properties before they are even listed. Bidding wars are erupting. And real estate agents are vying fiercely to represent the few sellers that do exist. Housing inventory has sunk to levels not seen since the bubble years. The number of American homes with a "for

Beginning Thursday, people using Microsoft’s Bing search engine to look for information about neighborhood businesses will be able to see excerpts from Yelp reviews. The deal between Microsoft Corp. and Yelp Inc. comes two weeks after Google unveiled a new feature that serves up restaurant ratings from Zagat. Google Inc. bought Zagat’s popular rating service for $151 million last year. To attract more people, Google scrapped the online fees that Zagat charged to read its ratings.

No change in OPEC oil

$3.67

WASHINGTON -- The government reported fresh signs of a weakening job market, even as consumers got some relief from falling energy prices that led to a sharp drop in inflation in May. The combination of rising jobless claims and easing consumer prices should give the Federal Reserve more reason to inject new monetary stimulus into the economy, although few analysts expect the central bank to pull the trigger at its next policy meeting Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, the Labor Department said new filings for jobless benefits rose by 8,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 386,000 claims. It was the fifth in-

alized. Fewer borrowers are entering default, and banks are better managing the properties they do have. In addition, professional investors bankrolled by private equity firms and hedge funds are grabbing bank-owned homes, often turning them into rentals. A dearth of new construction also is constraining supply. In April -- the most recent month for which figures are available -- the number of completed new single-family homes available for sale stood at 46,000, the lowest level since the Census Bureau began keeping track in 1973. About 70,000 were under construction, also near historic lows.

sale" sign hit 2.5 million in April, the lowest number for an April since 2006, according to the National Association of Realtors. The sharp drop in inventory along with rock-bottom interest rates have helped stabilize even some of the hardest-hit markets, including Southern California, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami. Some real estate professionals are concerned that the lack of inventory might turn off potential buyers, stifling the recent recovery in home sales. The much-predicted foreclosure wave that was expected to dump more homes onto the market has not materi-

The move Thursday by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries was expected. An OPEC statement cited “downside risks facing the global economy” that could result in lowered demand for the 12-nation organization’s crude.

Pennsylvania’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained at 7.4 percent in May, unchanged from April. The rate was down 0.6 percentage points from May 2011. The U.S. rate was 8.2 percent. Pennsylvania’s seasonally adjusted civilian labor force – the number of people

working or looking for work – was up 23,000 in May to 6,452,000. Seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs in Pennsylvania were down 9,900 to 5,713,300. The contrast between the labor force growth and jobs decline indicates more state residents are finding work outside its borders.

crease in the past six weeks, consistent with the spring slowdown in job growth seen in the monthly employment reports. Analysts say the deepening financial problems in Europe and the economic uncertainties at home are weighing on employers. The less-volatile four-week moving average of new jobless claims rose to

382,000, which is the highest level since April. First-time jobless claims are an indication of layoffs. Separately, the Labor Department said the consumer price index dropped a larger-than-expected 0.3 percent in May -the first decline in the month-to-month change in the last year.
