Sandusky attorney’s remarks give clues

Defense portion of sexual abuse trial might begin as early as today. SIMPSON WINS U.S. OPEN Webb Simpson won the U.S. Open and put two more names into the graveyard of champions. Overlooked for so much of the week, Simpson emerged on a fog-filled Sunday at The Olympic Club with four birdies around the turn and a tough chip out of a hole to the right of the 18th green that he converted into par for a 2-under 68. He finished at 1-over 281, and it was enough to outlast former U.S. Open champions Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell. Sports, 1B

Chamber committed to downtown W-B site

New incubator empty but still a go By ANDREW M. SEDER

WILKES-BARRE – The promise of a second business incubator along South Main Street remains unfulfilled. But Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business & Industry officials said the project is still a go, it’s just taken longer than anticipated. When the U.S. Economic De-


velopment Administration kicked in $2.2 million to help pay for the anticipated $5 million project in September 2010, the projected opening was this spring. With summer a week away, the Innovation Center II remains unbuilt, unbid and therefore empty of the dozen businesses and dozens of jobs it was supposed to house. New chamber CEO Bill

BELLEFONTE — After a gripping, emotionally charged four days of testimony that saw eight men from 18 to 28 years old tell jurors that Jerry Sandusky sexually abused them as children, the former Penn State assistant football coach will soon get to tell his side of the story. Sandusky Sandusky himself could take the stand in his own defense at his criminal trial, but it’s not certain that will happen. During his first remarks to jurors, his lawyer Joe Amendola suggested he might, though the jury has already heard an audio recording of a stilted television interview Sandusky conducted shortly after his November arrest, denying the allegations against him. Amendola’s opening statement, court documents and four days of witness cross-examination provide something of a road map to the defense’s strategy, which has been aimed at creating enough doubt in jurors’ minds to avoid a conviction that could send Sandusky to prison for life. Judge John Cleland on Friday ruled in favor of a Sandus-

Man slashed in attack

Police are looking for a suspect in the Sunday incident at a gas station. By JERRY LYNOTT

SUGARLOAF TWP. – A Harrisburg man was slashed fighting off a knife-wielding robber Sunday morning at the Shell gas station on state Route 93 and Tomhicken Road, state police said. Eric Briggs, 27, required sutures for a slash wound on one of his arms from the man who tried to take his wallet, state police said. Briggs provided this account to state police:

While he was at one of the pumps around 9 a.m., a man approached him from a wooded area and asked, “Hey, boss, you got a couple bucks?” Briggs replied he had only credit cards. The man reached for Briggs’ wallet and was pushed away. The man then said, “I’m gonna get your wallet whether you give it to me or not,” and pulled a switchblade knife from his pocket, poking at Briggs with the blade. Briggs held up his arms to defend himself and was slashed on both arms. He swung an arm and knocked loose the knife.

Briggs punched the man in the throat and dropped him to the ground by pulling his legs out from under him. Briggs got on top of the man, struck him and rolled him onto his stomach. The man pushed up and fled into the woods. Briggs described the suspect as a white man in his 40s with black-and-gray thinning hair, a large nose, missing teeth, approximately 6 feet tall, 145 pounds and wearing dirty blue jeans and a dark T-shirt. Anyone with information about the attempted robbery is asked to contact state police in Hazleton at 570-459-3890.

HAZLE TWP. – A shoplifter fled the Walmart store on Airport Road with a package of T-shirts around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, state police said.

LOS ANGELES — Zoo animals remain hot at the box office. Singing stars and Adam Sandler are not. Ben Stiller and his voice costars of “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” held on to the No.1 spot again, with $35.5 million for the animated sequel’s second weekend in domestic theaters. Studio estimates Sunday put Ridley Scott’s sci-fi adventure “Prometheus” at No. 2 again with $20.2 million. “Madagascar 3” and “Prometh-

eus” held off two under-achieving newcomers. The star-studded musical “Rock of Ages,” whose cast includes Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin, flopped at No. 3 with $15.1 million. Sandler’s “That’s My Boy” bombed with $13 million, the worst showing for one of his broad comedies since the mid-1990s. “That’s My Boy” came in at No. 5, behind the $13.8 million for “Snow White & the Huntsman,” a film that’s been out for three weekends already. “Sure, we would have liked to have done more,” said Rory Bruer, head of distribution at Sony, which released “That’s My Boy” and most of Sandler’s past movies. “But you’ve got to give it to Adam. He mixes it up. This is a


aid for public schools and 18 state-supported universities. Just six Democrats voted for the Republican-penned Marcellus Shale law in what many Democrats viewed as an industry giveaway by Corbett, and none raised a hand for the voter identification law, now one of the nation’s toughest. Both are being challenged in court. Democrats will connect the Shell tax credit to Republicansponsored cuts in aid to education, people with disabilities and health and human services that they say are driving layoffs and increases in local property taxes. “We’ve already given away the store to the Marcellus Shale industry and now we’re proposing to give away billions of tax dollars?” said state Rep. Phyllis Mundy, Kingston, the ranking Democrat on the House Finance Committee. For his part, Corbett has been

through ups and down in his approval rating before. “If you’re going to do this job, you can’t be looking at that,” he told a radio interviewer Wednesday. “The one thing I learned last year, if you looked at the numbers, they were bad during the course of the budget last year. They got better as people see things other than the budget issues.” By late September, his approval rating hit 50 percent, Quinnipiac reported, and stayed in the high 40s through November. Republican lawmakers are privately urging Corbett to make a strong public case for the tax credit — it is designed to lure an entire petrochemical industry to a state that has bled 40 percent of its manufacturing jobs since 1990. It also helps that labor unions aligned with Democrats are supportive. But Republicans also remem-

really off-the-wall comedy.” “That’s My Boy” stars Sandler as a guy who became a fleeting teen celebrity after getting his seventh-grade teacher pregnant and now is a middle-aged loser trying to reconnect with his son (Andy Samberg). As with most Sandler movies, the reviews were bad, but that usually does not stop his audience of young males from showing up. The R rating for “That’s My Boy” may have cut into the movie’s business, prohibiting those under 17 from seeing it without an adult. Sandler’s comedies usually are rated PG-13. But Sandler has plenty of fans in their late teens and 20s, and that crowd had little interest in “That’s My Boy.”

ber complaining about efforts by Corbett’s predecessor, Democrat Ed Rendell, to help Comcast Corp. get a headquarters skyscraper in Philadelphia or introduce a tax credit that benefits filmmakers that use the state as a backdrop. “I don’t know many of my colleagues that are scared of this issue” in the fall election, said Rep. Rob Kauffman, R-Franklin. “It’s just a matter of, we want to do things right. This is a difficult issue. Although we want to support our governor, this is not something that many of us would have supported in the past.” Meanwhile, Republican legislative leaders are pressing Corbett to accept a budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 that would undo his second straight year of proposing cuts to public schools and universities, if not to social services and aid for the poor.

Minsec inmate is charged

An inmate at the Minsec private community correctional facility in Hazleton was arrested and charged with retail theft Saturday, state police said. Jason Richard Horton, 27, was committed to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail. State police said loss prevention personnel of the Boscov’s Department Store in the Laurel Mall stopped Horton as he walked out the store with merchandise he had not paid for. While Horton was in custody at the state police barracks at Hazleton, Minsec called state police to report him as an escapee. When informed of his whereabouts, Minsec told state police the state Department of Corrections would be issuing a detainer to hold Horton at the county prison. He was transported to the prison and arraigned Sunday.

PITTSTON – Ooooh. Ahhhh. Nooooo.

He said the Garden Village should focus on visioning and rehabilitation. Moskovitz said the cost of the fireworks ranges from $7,500 to $15,000, depending on the size of the display. Donations defray the cost, but often 50 percent of the bill is paid by the city. Klush said it isn’t appropriate to solicit funds from businesses in Pittston and West Pittston that traditionally donate because they are already being asked to contribute to other community projects, including the Pittston Library Capital Campaign and the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce “Hometown Heroes Memorial” project. Funds raised during the library’s campaign will be used for construction of a $1.5 million, 5,000-square-foot addition to the building, which will contain a state-of-the-art conference room with Smartboards and WiFi capability, larger children’s section, arts and crafts room, teen space and a senior citizen area. The chamber is trying to raise $30,000 for the Hometown Heroes Memorial, to honor local soldiers and police officers in the line of duty.

Tour will offer look at some of W. Pittston’s historic churches Organizer hopes to have representatives of the houses of worship available. By SARA POKORNY


Jan Lokuta is offering a tour of the greater Pittston area’s historic churches on Sunday.

WEST PITTSTON – Jan Lokuta has always liked the visual arts, particularly as a way to get people interested in their surroundings. “You’d be surprised; there are a lot of people who will drive past a site where there’s a natural feature, or a man-made one like this church, and never realize the beauty of it,” he said as he sat in the front of the First

Wyoming and Exeter. This year he’s bringing it to West Pittston, on account of the fall flood. “I’m looking at these churches as arks, or lifeboats, both during and after the flood,” Lokuta said. “They have really been anchors of the community.” Lokuta hopes to have a representative from each congregation present at the site to talk of

the church’s spiritual tradition and history, as well as highlight the art and architecture of the building. The tour will begin at First Presbyterian Church on Exeter Avenue, a stop on the tour that was very badly damaged by the Susquehanna River. From there it will go to Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, First Congregational United Church of Christ and Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, all on Luzerne Avenue, then to Trinity Episcopal Church on Montgomery Avenue and finally the First United

Methodist Church, where a reception will be held to end the nearly three-hour tour. “I’m hoping that at the reception members of all these congregations, of different denominations, can get together and talk about the progress they’ve made since the flood,” Lokuta said. The tour will also highlight the 100th anniversary of the Salvation Army’s presence in West Pittston. The Luzerne County Transportation Authority will provide its trolley for those who do not wish to walk or car pool.

Deadly stage collapse probed By ROB GILLIES and CHARMAINE NORONHA Associated Press

TORONTO — Investigators combed through the wreckage of a Toronto stage Sunday to determine what caused the structure to come crashing down ahead of a Radiohead concert, killing the band’s drum technician and injuring three other crew members. The British band said it was devastated over the death of Scott Johnson, a U.K. citizen in his 30s who was trapped under the rubble and pronounced dead at the scene. “We have all been shattered by the loss of Scott Johnson, our friend and colleague. He was a lovely man, always positive, supportive and funny; a highly skilled and valued member of our great road crew,” the band said on its website. “We will miss him very much. Our thoughts and love are with Scott’s family and all those close to him.” Toronto police spokesman To-

wreckage. They were provided with engineer drawings. Vella said criminal charges could result but added that it’s early in the investigation. Live Nation, the company that organized the concert, did not immediately return calls seeking comment Sunday. Radiohead’s website had listed the concert as being sold out, with 40,000 tickets sold. The band said fans could get refunds for the cancelled show at points of purchase. Police said the park wasn’t full when the collapse occurred at about 4 p.m. but there was a considerable crowd already waiting for the show amid sunny skies. Mike Kensey, 26, said he arrived at the venue hours early to get a spot close the stage and see the opening act by Canadian band Caribou.

ny Vella said a 45-year-old man hospitalized with a head injury was improving and his life was not in danger. The other two crew members were treated at the scene. Officials from the Ontario Ministry of Labor searched through the wreckage for clues to the cause of the collapse Saturday in Downsview Park. They were also investigating whether safety regulations and standards were followed and if staff were properly trained. Ministry spokesman Matt Blajer said the massive structure is “still fairly unstable” and work is under way to make it safe. He said the investigation is “fairly complex” and it could take some time to figure out exactly what happened. Blajer said they have three inspectors and two engineers going through the

Black Motorist’s 1991 videotaped beating by LA police was touchstone for race riot

LOS ANGELES — Rodney King, the black motorist whose 1991 videotaped beating by Los Angeles police officers was the touchstone for one of the most destructive race riots in the nation’s history, was found at the bottom of his swimming pool early Sunday and later pronounced dead. He was 47. King’s fiancée called 911 at 5:25 a.m. to report that she found him in the pool at their home in Rialto, Calif., police Lt. Dean Hardin said. Officers arrived to find King in the deep end of the pool and pulled him out. King was unresponsive, and officers began CPR until paramedics arrived. King was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:11a.m., police said. Police Capt. Randy De Anda said King had been by the pool throughout the early morning and had been talking to his fiancee, who was inside the home at the time.

A statement from police said the preliminary investigation indicates a drowning, with no signs of foul play. Investigators will await autopsy results to determine whether King drugs or alcohol were involved, but De Anda said there were no alcoholic beverages or paraphernalia found near the pool. Authorities didn’t identify the fiancée. King earlier said he was engaged to Cynthia Kelley, one of the jurors in the civil rights case that gave King $3.8 million in damages. The 1992 riots, which were set off by the acquittals of the officers who beat King, lasted three days and left 55 people dead, more than 2,000 injured and swaths of Los Angeles on fire. At the height of the violence, King pleaded on television: “Can we all get along?”

King, a 25-year-old on parole from a robbery conviction, was stopped for speeding on a darkened street on March 3, 1991. He was on parole and had been drinking — he later said that led him to try to evade police. Four Los Angeles police officers hit him more than 50 times with their ba-

tons, kicked him and shot him with stun guns. A man who had quietly stepped outside his home to observe the commotion videotaped most of it and turned a copy over to a TV station. It was played over and over for the following year, inflaming racial tensions across the country.


polling agencies projected, fortifying Hollande in his push for governments to spend money — not cut budgets — to tackle Europe’s economic crisis. Former President Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservatives, who dominated the outgoing National Assembly, suffered a stinging loss, according to all estimations. Meanwhile, the far-right National Front party was on track to win a small but symbolically important presence in parliament for the first time in years. “This new, solid and large majority will allow us now to pass laws for change, and gives us great responsibilities in France and in Europe,” Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on France-2 television as the results started coming in. Elections in France and Greece on Sunday will weigh on Europe’s future and whether its debt troubles will hobble markets and economies across the globe.

Stiff winds fan wildfire

Crews in northern Colorado are facing powerful winds as they battle a blaze that has scorched about 86 square miles of mountainous forest land and destroyed at least 181 homes, the most in state history. Meanwhile, local authorities are focusing on another concern — looting. The destructiveness of the High Park Fire burning 15 miles west of Fort Collins surpassed the Fourmile Canyon wildfire, which destroyed 169 homes west of Boulder in September 2010. More than 1,630 personnel are working on the Fort Collins-area fire, which was sparked by lightning and is 45 percent contained. Julie Berney with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office said firefighters can expect winds of 30 mph with gusts of up to 50 mph Sunday. Some rain moved through Saturday evening, but it wasn’t enough to quell the fire. CAIRO

Military issues constitution

State television says the ruling military council has issued an interim “constitutional declaration,” a move that formally hands the generals legislative powers following the dissolution of the Islamist-dominated parliament. The television’s brief report Sunday gave no details, saying only that the military council will give details at a news conference the next day. The widely anticipated declaration is expected to lay out the powers of the next president and give the generals the final say on the process of drafting a new constitution for the country. Leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, which controls just under half of parliament’s seats, rejected the court’s ruling. ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

Search ends for climbers

Four Japanese climbers who died on Alaska’s Mount McKinley were likely pushed by an avalanche into the same crevasse where one climber survived. National Park Service spokeswoman Kris Fister says rangers believe the crevasse is the final resting place for 64-year-old Yoshiaki Kato, 50-year-old Masako Suda, 56-year-old Michiko Suzuki and 63-year-old Tamao Suzuki. The shallow avalanche also pushed 69-year-old Hitoshi Ogi into the crevasse early Wednesday morning. He was attached to the other climbers by a rope that broke. He climbed 60 feet out of the crevasse and reached a base camp Thursday.

Bailout backers win in Greece The Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece — The conservative party that backs keeping Greece in the eurozone won the country’s national election Sunday and immediately proposed forming a pro-euro coalition government — a development that eased, at least briefly, deep fears that the vote would unleash an economic tsunami. As central banks stood ready to intervene in case of financial turmoil, Greece held its second national election in six weeks after an inconclusive ballot on May 6. The vote was seen as crucial since it could determine whether Greece would leave the joint

euro currency, potentially damaging the world’s economy. With 66 percent of the vote counted, official results showed the conservative New Democracy winning 30.1 percent of the vote and 130 of the 300 seats in Parliament. The radical anti-bailout Syriza party had 26.5 percent and 70 seats and the pro-bailout Socialist PASOK party came in third with 12.6 percent of the vote and 34 seats.

Romney stays mum on Obama immigration order By KASIE HUNT Associated Press

BRUNSWICK, Ohio — Mitt Romney is refusing to say that he would overturn President Barack Obama’s new policy allowing some young illegal immigrants to stay in the United States. The Republican presidential candidate was asked three times in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” whether he would overturn the executive order issued Friday if he’s elected in the fall. He refused to directly answer.

“It would be overtaken by events,” Romney said 2 0 1 2 when pressed for the secELECTION ond time by moderator Bob Schieffer during the interview taped Saturday while the former Massachusetts governor’s bus tour stopped in Pennsylvania. He explained the order would become irrelevant “by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know

what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a president but on a permanent basis.” Romney’s Rust Belt tour swept through Ohio on Sunday. In the TV interview, Romney suggested that Obama’s decision on immigration was motivated by politics. “If he felt seriously about this he should have taken action when he had a Democrat House and Senate, but he didn’t. He saves these sort of things until four and a half months before the general election,” he said.

BEIRUT — The head of the U.N. observers’ mission in Syria demanded Sunday that warring parties allow the evacuation of women, children, elderly and sick people endangered by the fighting in the besieged city of Homs and other combat zones. Maj. Gen. Robert Mood said the observers had been trying for the past week to extricate civilians and the wounded from the central city of Homs but had failed because neither government troops nor the rebels were willing to hold their fire. “The parties must reconsider their position and allow women, children, the elderly and the in- Maj.

U.N. observers have been trying for the past week to bring out more than 1,000 families and dozens of wounded trapped in Homs by heavily shelling of rebel-held areas for the past week. The offensive is part of a broader push by regime forces to regain rebelheld villages and towns throughout the country. On Saturday, the U.N. said the 300 observers based in Syria were suspending all missions because of concerns for their safety as fighting becomes more intense. But the monitors said they were remaining in Syria in the capital Damascus. A U.N. official told The Associated Press earlier Sunday that a team of observers had left Damascus for Homs, hoping to evacuate civilians. The plan was not made public for fear that would compromise the mission. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The official said the plan was to arrange a very brief cease-fire of up to 90 minutes during which the civilians would have been evacuated from rebel-held areas of Homs through a safe corridor.

Many small businesses line Wyoming Avenue and Welles Street, the main commercial areas. Another popular event is the West Side Christmas Parade, which Sherry Yeninas wants to see expanded to include lots of area towns. “You don’t see stuff like that anymore,” she said. The old borough school district is now part of the Wyoming Valley West district, though the name “Flyers” – a nod to the nearby airport – continues to be used for youth sports. The Wyoming Seminary Lower School is one of the largest buildings in town. Yeninas, who has served on the borough council, is excited about the upcoming 125th anniversary, an event for which planning began two years ago. For her, one focus is getting the word out about Forty Fort. Fifteen years ago, she says, when she and husband, George, were making a move from another Wyoming Valley town, they quickly zeroed in on Forty Fort when they sensed it had something striking, something they wanted to be a part of. “We didn’t buy a house,” she said. “We bought a community.”

Forty Fort’s secret Barely a decade after its formation, historian Henry C. Bradsby was calling Forty Fort “one of the most beautiful suburban towns, supplied by two railroads, having each a station, and by electric street cars, passing entirely through the place and on to Pittston and Scranton.” If there was a secret to Forty Fort’s success, it was the town lying far enough from the county seat of Wilkes-Barre to avoid 19th-century sprawl and industrialism, yet close enough to be the place where you could live, educate your children, worship and still go to work in one of the nearby cities every day. Its land was left pretty much unscarred, since the coal mines that powered the area’s economy a century and more ago tended to be built outside the borough limits. It also offered an unparalleled view of the Susquehanna River, an encouragement to build homes along the bank. Significant businesses did develop. Early on, the borough became a stop on Susquehanna River traffic with a riverbank store. Succeeding decades saw the arrival of the Cauldwell Iron Works, the Matheson Motor Car Co. and even a movie studio – the Black Diamond company. But Forty Fort remained largely a pleasant community of homes and churches, and in its early decades even banned alcohol. Beautiful homes sprouted, and concerts by the elaborately uniformed Forty Fort Band enlivened a host of public events. Much of the growth took place in the 1920s, when a realestate boom brought an estimated 1,000 families into the borough. In 1934 Burgess (Mayor) Samuel Boyd proclaimed his town “the garden village of the West Side” and foresaw nothing but further expansion. The 20th century did see some unhappy events. In 1927, several thousand masked Ku Klux Klansmen marched along Wyoming Avenue, having been granted permission for their parade there after Wilkes-Barre refused. In 1959, mine tunnels deep underground began to

John R. Kuzma

June 17, 2012



ohn R. Kuzma, 76, a resident of Swoyersville, passed away peacefully on Friday afternoon, June 15, 2012, surrounded by his loving family. His loving wife is Eleanor (Kutyana) Kuzma. John and Eleanor were blessed to have a beautiful marriage and share many wonderful years together. Born on December 10, 1935, in Kingston, John was the son of the late Edward and Lillian (Coniglio) Kuzma. John was raised in Swoyersville and attended the former Swoyersville High School. A proud veteran, John honorably served his country during the Korean Conflict with the United States Navy as a Seaman Recruit. Following his honorable discharge from the Navy, he re-enlisted with the United States Air Force, serving his country for an additional three years. During his time in the Air Force, John had the distinct honor of being one of the mechanics to work on President Dwight Eisenhower’s plane. Upon his honorable discharge on June 13, 1958, John had attained the rank of Airman 3rd Class. Prior to his retirement, John was a self-employed automobile mechanic, owning and operating John’s Garage, Swoyersville, for over 20 years. In his earlier years, John was employed by the former Connolly’s Automotive and R.V. Center, working at both their Kingston and Edwardsville locations. A faithful Catholic, John was a member of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, Swoyersville. John was known by many as being the “car doctor.” He truly loved being a mechanic, and it was common knowledge that John could fix anything with an engine in it! One of his favorite pastimes was restoring classic cars and anybody who knew John knew his love for his beloved El Camino. Following John and Eleanor’s retirement, they bought a home in Ruskin, Florida, and enjoyed spending their winters there over the past 15 years. Traveling was a passion that John and Eleanor shared with their family. Over the years, they were fortunate to travel in their RV throughout the United States and Canada, visiting 31 of the 50 states. From the time he was a child, John had a great interest in aviation. As an adult, he fulfilled his lifelong dream by becoming a licensed pilot and plane owner. The Forty Fort Airport became another home to John and the friends he made there were like a second family to him. His great understanding of mechanics were valued and respected by his fellow aviators at the Forty Fort Airport. An avid bike rider, John was often seen around town riding his bike. His enjoyment for bike riding led him to help establish the Wyoming Valley Bike Club in the early 1970s.

John was also an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He passed down his love for the outdoors to his sons and grandchildren. Out of all the things John enjoyed in life, nothing compared to the love and devotion he had for his wife, children, grandchildren, extended family and friends. His presence will be deeply missed but his spirit will forever live on in the hearts of his family and friends. In addition to his loving wife, Eleanor, John is survived by his children, Carol Seltzer and her husband Ralph, of Kingston; William Kuzma and his wife, Joan E., of Shavertown; Linda Mallam and her husband, Jim, of Atlanta, Georgia; Scott Kuzma and his companion, Amy Backo, of Luzerne; his grandchildren, Ryan Seltzer and his wife, Sarah; Chad Seltzer and his fiancée, Melanie Koslosky; Neil Seltzer, Alexis Kuzma and Jonathan Mallam; his two adopted grandchildren, Amber and Harley; his brothers, Chester Kuzma and his wife, Alyce, of Swoyersville; Charles Kuzma and his wife, Diane, of Centermoreland; his sisters, Ann Grozalis, of Courtdale; Rosalie O’Donnell and her husband, Robert, of Hanover Township; numerous nieces and nephews; many dear friends. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the funeral which will be conducted on Wednesday, June 20, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. from the Wroblewski Funeral Home Inc., 1442 Wyoming Avenue, Forty Fort, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial to be celebrated at 10 a.m. in Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, 116 Hughes Street, Swoyersville, with the Reverend Joseph J.

Memoir details Edwards’ affair ings for Edwards but doesn’t The disgraced presidential candidate’s mistress writes of know how their relationship will turn out. their relationship. The book also provides a winBy MEG KINNARD Associated Press

When John Edwards faced the prospect of an indictment that could put him behind bars, he calmly told his mistress he would probably wind up in a low-security prison in Virginia more like a country club than a jail. She quickly told him she and their daughter would move there to be near him if that happened. Rielle Hunter details their phone call just days before his indictment in her new memoir, purchased by The Associated Press ahead of its release. “What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me,” also includes Rielle Hunter’s mixed views on Edwards’ parenting of their daughter Quinn and descriptions of Elizabeth Edwards’ outbursts. At the end of the book, Hunter says she still has romantic feel-

dow into Edwards’ psyche as federal prosecutors began their case against him. Days before his indictment Hunter asked: “So if you went to jail, what kind of jail would it be? One of those country clubs?” “He said, ‘Yeah.’ ” “‘Where?’ ” she asked. “‘Probably Virginia.’ ” “So Quinn and I will move to Virginia. Virginia is a great state.” The only low-security federal prison in Virginia is in Petersburg, where former Washington, D.C., Mayor Marion Barry once served time. New York publishers had said they were not interested in Hunter’s book, citing her negative image, so it is instead being released through a Dallas-based boutique publisher, BenBella Books, on June 26.

GOP to seek quick law repeal

But Republicans want health care law replaced slowly after the fall elections.

Mary M. Walski ary M. Walski, 94, a former resiM dent of Swoyersville, passed away peacefully on Saturday after-


By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON — Congressional Republicans intend to seek quick repeal of any parts of the health care law that survive a widely anticipated Supreme Court ruling, but don’t plan to push replacement measures until after the fall elections or perhaps 2013. Instead, GOP lawmakers cite recent announcements that some insurance companies will retain a few of the law’s higherprofile provisions as evidence that quick legislative action is not essential. Those are steps that officials say Republicans quietly urged in private conversations with the industry. Once the Supreme Court issues a ruling, “the goal is to repeal anything that is left standing,” said Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., a member of the party’s leadership. Beyond that, “we ought to go step by step to lower the cost” of health care, he added, a formula repeated by numerous other Republicans interviewed in recent days. Across the A Supreme political aisle, Court ruling is neither Presiexpected dent Barack Obama nor within the congressional next two Democrats weeks on a have said how they will react challenge to to a high court the law, which ruling that has drawn could wipe out fierce opposithe legislation they worked so tion among hard to enact. most Repub“We’re not licans for its spending a requirement whole bunch of time planning that most for contingen- individuals cies,” Obama carry health said this spring at the annual insurance. meeting of The Associated Press. He expressed confidence the court would uphold the law, and neither he nor his aides have said what fallback plans are under discussion. “We will be prepared in any eventuality,” White House aide David Plouffe said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” although he declined to elaborate. Among Republicans, aides to Speaker John Boehner, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and other key lawmakers have convened a series of meetings in recent weeks to plan a post-ruling strategy. A Supreme Court ruling is expected within the next two weeks on a challenge to the law, which has drawn fierce opposition among most Republicans for its requirement that most individuals carry health insurance. While three big insurance companies announced plans this past week to retain certain protections for an estimated 40 percent of all individuals who receive their coverage through work, there has been no advance word from the drug industry on how prescription costs for older people might be affected by a finding that the law is unconstitutional. Even so, Republicans say they have no plans for assuring continuity of a provision that reduces out-of-pocket costs for seniors with high drug expenses. This coverage gap is known as “doughnut hole.”








They’re gone fishin’

Event is a good way to reel in time with dad on Father’s Day By SARA POKORNY

BLACK CREEK TWP. -- Keith Laylo stood along the edge of the pond on the Penn Rod and Gunn Club’s property in Black Creek Township on Father’s Day morning among his own father, Bob, 72, and his son Nicholas, 12, and daughter Erika, 5. At his signal, nearly 100 children, also alongside their dads and grandpas, cast lines into the pond in hopes of snagging the biggest fish of the day. Forty-year-old Laylo had helped to resurrect the club’s annual Fishing Derby, a traditional he was a part of when he was a kid. “I very much remember my father bringing me here when I was young to do this,” he said. “I did win some prizes in my day.” “Yeah, and he cheated,” his father, 72, joked. Family fishing is a tradition for many, particularly among fathers who teach their sons and daughters the tricks of the trade. Such is the case with Jordon Wilkinson, 14, who was taught how to fish at the age of 4 by her dad, Kelly. “It’s something I always loved,” she said. “I love casting it out there and just waiting to see what’s going to come up on the other end.” William and Kristen Ebert of Hazle Township have always fished with their children, Laila, 11, Jackilynn, 7, and Billy, 3. “It’s just always something we’ve done as a family because it’s nice quiet and quality time,” Ebert said. “We like to stay a family that does things outdoors and together, especially in today’s day and age.” The time spent casting poles has certainly been a pleasure for all the Eberts and was never more evident than when Zion Grove Trout Hatchery pulled in to load

up the water and Billy sprinted right toward the truck. The pond was stocked with hundreds of fish yesterday and some of the children had the opportunity to dump buckets of trout in on their own so they could get a first-hand view of just what they would have a chance to catch. Billy grabbed a piece of handle to as many buckets as he could, excited to see the fish up close, letting out screams of elation any time one splashed water up and out onto his legs. The group was divided by ages, from small children up to 8 years old and 9 to 15 year olds. Prizes were awarded in each division,

and by gender, for first fish caught, biggest fish caught and first person to catch the three-fish limit. Still, everyone walked away with something. “Our sponsors really came through for us this year,” Keith Laylo said, standing in front of a mound of prizes that included bikes, fishing poles, squirt guns and summer toys, among many other things. “We had a lot of help and support, and we ended up with great prizes. We want to make sure every child gets something.” Each child received a fishing pole and a grab bag that included small fishing supplies.

“This event is absolutely fantastic,” said Jane Del Pino of Harveys Lake, who came out with her 11-year-old daughter, Anna, and 8-year-old neighbor, Vanessa Acevedo. “We fish here every day during the season, but today is special. The legion does a wonderful job and the kids just love it.” A beaming 13-year-old Brandon Pieszala of Larksville proudly carried his netted 4 3/4 lb, 21inch, brown lake trout to the judges’ stand for quantification. “I had a really big one hooked last year,” said Pieszala, who expected to win a top prize on Saturday. “It was so big, it actually broke my line. Who knows, maybe the one I caught today was the same one.”

International community can’t ignore Syrian strife


S THERE NOTHING the international community can do to stop the bloodshed in Syria? On June 8, United Nations monitors described finding scattered body parts after a visit to the deserted Syrian hamlet of Mazraat al-Qubeir, where a reported 78 people were massacred. Over the past 15 months since the civil unrest began more than 13,000 people have been killed – many of whom were women and children. Yet, the world’s powers seem helpless to work together to stop the violence. It is frustrating to stand by while thousands of innocent civilians are being massacred only a few hundred kilometers to our north. And this frustration is compacted by the knowledge that – in this case at least – our political autonomy does not help us to reach out to the em-

battled Syrian people. In some respects, Syrian animosity toward Zionism actually transforms the Jewish people’s statehood into an obstacle, not a vehicle, to extending humanitarian aid. But even the international community’s ability to stop the bloodshed in Syria is limited. The Syrian opposition is a patchwork of diverse groups. Some are democrats and nationalists. But others are Islamists, including groups connected to al-Qaida. Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood are providing aid to these Islamist elements. Meanwhile, Iran and Russia are providing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime with weapons and support. There are no easy solutions in Syria. But doing nothing at all is not an option.

Her blog, set up about six weeks ago as a writing project and to help raise money for a school-meals charity, has drawn more than 2 million hits.

Scott Walker of Wisconsin became a target of public sector unions because he limited their collective bargaining rights. The unions wanted to throw him out, but the people of Wisconsin said no. Walker’s victory is seen as a major blow to unions, but it is only part of an American trend to limit the power of big unions. It is a movement driven by politics, ideology and the need to balance budgets. Will such sentiments travel across the border? In some ways, they already have. In fact, certain actions of Canadian governments make

Walker’s moves in Wisconsin seem tame. In Canada, the federal government is making its employees pay more toward pension plans, as Walker did. It is eliminating thousands of public service positions, and it is making decisions based on management’s perception of merit, not old-fashioned seniority. The federal government also has ended the ridiculous federal worker entitlement to severance for people who retire or choose to leave their jobs. These changes are being made gently, with generous provisions for those being laid off, payout of accumulated severance entitlements and phasing in of the pension changes.

Awash in ocean debris


ILLIONS OF TONS of debris that washed into the Pacific Ocean after the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami last year are drifting ever closer to North America or turning up on its shores. Japan cannot turn a blind eye to this problem simply because it was caused by a natural disaster. According to the Ministry of Environment, the amount of debris is estimated to be around 5 million tons. It is thought that 70 percent of the debris sank along Japan’s coastline, but the remaining 30 percent is adrift and floating eastward on currents that run north of the Hawaiian islands.

There have been heartwarming stories, like that of the soccer ball discovered on the Alaskan coast being returned to its owner, a high school student in Iwate Prefecture. The problem is not so much about those items but more about environmentally damaging substances such as oil cans. They say there already are several spots in the Pacific that are vast, pre-existing garbage dumps. People need to cooperate to do something about this, together with solving the matter of the tsunami debris, in order to bequeath to future generations the blessings of the sea.

Pennsylvania can’t keep kicking its debt down the road AS PENNSYLVANIA’S budget deadline nears, it’s essential to remember that the effects of the recession are still lingering. That is why state government must spend sparingly, wisely and take care to not mistake math for ideology. The urgency of our fiscal condition falls well outside partisan politics. Debt is just as damaging to Democrats as to Republicans. Budget cuts are felt by everyone. Spending money we do not have is simply not an option. Last year there was much talk about a supposed $785 million “surplus.” While some people were tempted to plug this money into dollar-hungry programs, the months afterward proved what a mistake it would have been to do so. As summer of 2011 approached, that “surplus” largely vanished as tax revenues fell below estimates. As the budget year ended, that so-called “surplus” saved us from even harder cutbacks. A tax increase would have simply held us in place and cost the typical two-income Pennsylvania family more than $2,200 in additional taxes. Not only do we need a fresh start in our


COMMENTARY LT. GOV. JIM CAWLEY budgeting, we need an entirely new outlook: Pennsylvania must escape its “structural deficit.” Families understand this concept well. If your paycheck pays your mortgage, auto and utilities, and you buy groceries with a credit card but only pay the monthly minimum, you are building a structural deficit by pushing that debt down the road. And that’s what Pennsylvania was doing since 2006. That is why, once again, the Corbett administration is proposing a budget that spends no more than we actually have. You only need to read the headlines to understand why this common-sense approach is the right one. Global economies are in turmoil and national unemployment is back on the rise. Mandated costs for pensions, medical assistance, corrections and debt service will grow by more than $1.4 billion. Any revenue growth will come in around $900 million. This is basic math and an unfortunate reality.

Getting our budget back into balance will help to grow a sustainable economy and much more. We need to send a clear signal to the credit rating agencies that have shown a growing wariness toward our structural deficit, lack of reserves and explosion in the cost of mandated programs. Because the state puts its full faith and credit behind many bond issues, a drop in our rating would add to costs for school districts and local governments. Lean budgets do not make for happy times, but the only other option would be to continue to spend beyond our means. But just as the countries of the European Union are discovering, every debt finally comes due. Governor Corbett and I refuse to kick the can farther down the road and leave our problems for future generations to solve. It remains imperative for all branches of government – state, county and local – to fashion their budgets to suit reality. Facing reality in the here and now is the only way we can create better days ahead. Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley, inaugurated as the state’s 32nd lieutenant governor in 201 1, is a resident of Bucks County.

he legal responsibility for providing public education to the state’s children rests on the shoulders of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Unfortunately, the Corbett administration and the Republican-controlled Legislature have not accepted that responsibility during the past two years. The Legislature is considering a bill that would shift some of the funding for public schools from real estate property taxes to increases in the state’s personal income and sales tax rates. Generally, I support that concept, especially the shift to personal income, but I have reservations about increasing the sales tax rate. Given the track record of the past two years of Republican control and its lack of support for public education, I also have reservations about the bill to shift funding to the state level where taxes are fairer and are collected in smaller amounts on a regular basis. Is this just a backdoor attempt to cut funding for local schools even further, or an honest effort to make taxation fairer and to increase revenue for public schools? We don’t know for sure. As you might recall, most taxpayers and voters were led to believe that income from taxes on gambling revenue would be used only to reduce school property taxes, which is not the case at all.

Without reasonable safeguards to prevent deeper cuts to public schools, this legislation should not become law. David Faust Selinsgrove

Some neighborly advice: Please curb your dog


want to express the idea of neighborliness. Why do people think they can move into a neighborhood where some people have lived for decades and one of the first things they do is take their dog for a walk to go on someone else’s lawn? This should not need to be explained. If you don’t want your dog to go in your yard, why would you think the neighbor wants it to go in his? Just a little advice: There is a law called “curbing your dog” that requires you to carry a plastic bag or other container to


pick up your dog’s droppings as you walk it. This law can be checked out at the time you purchase the license for the animal, or contact the city police or dog warden for a copy. Please try to have some respect for yourself and others. However, if you won’t do that, move to an area that already is a slum. Why try to turn a decent neighborhood into one, and why get angry at those people who already are in a neighborhood from trying to stop you? John T. Banks Wilkes-Barre

Writer plans to protest outcome of pet’s surgery


ix months ago our dog Maggi had to be put to sleep. Maggi’s companion of 11 years looks for her every day. The heartbreak is ever constant. As I look back on the day I took Maggi to the hospital, it took only 12 minutes to inform me that surgery on her back was needed. I was instructed to give the receptionist a down payment. But I feel I was improperly charged for the procedure. Some caring pet lovers are going to join me in a demonstration in July. Anyone wishing to join us may call me at (570) 332-9576.

River channel clear Dave Buck, owner of Endless Mountain Outfitters in Sugar Run in Bradford County, was pleased to see the river channel relatively free of trees and other large debris. He anticipates no problems with this weekend’s annual RiverFest. “You do see islands with debris stacked up, but the river itself is in pretty good shape,” Buck said. For the last 12 years Buck has guided kayak trips on the North Branch of the Susquehanna River. His business was flooded last September, but days after the high water receded, the river cleared up, Buck said, and normalcy soon returned. “The river just gets out of hand, sometimes,” Buck said. Joining the kayak group for Thursday’s river trip were several officials with the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The agency will be participating in RiverFest, and the officials wanted to have a look at things beforehand. Assistant District Forester Joe Ulozas said the river appears relatively unscathed from the flood, and he attributed it partly to the riparian areas that border the water. “I was expecting to see more debris and garbage and even trees knocked over,” Ulozas said.


Dave Buck of Endless Mountain Outfitters goes over some last-minute safety instructions before heading down river Thursday morning.

“But things look good. The riparian areas held up and even the trees that collected a lot of debris are still standing. “It’s amazing the work we put into protecting structures from floods, but the trees just withstand it naturally by holding in place with their root systems.” Still, Buck did find a problem area on the river when he beached his kayak at the boat launch in Nesbitt Park.

This problem – a pile of plastic bottles left on the shore, wasn’t related to the flood. “The debris we saw earlier today is from a flood. That’s something people can’t help,” Buck said. “But the littering is what irritates me. That’s something people have control over.”

ky motion seeking to put evidence of “histrionic personality disorder” before jurors in his child sexual abuse case. Cleland’s order says Sandusky must also make himself available for prosecutors so they can prepare rebuttal testimony. The defense says people with the disorder wouldn’t necessarily be grooming boys to molest them, but instead to “satisfy the needs of a psyche” with the disorder. The defense has sought to show how the stories of accusers have changed over time, that they were prodded and coached by investigators and prosecutors, that some are motivated to lie by the hopes of a civil lawsuit jackpot, and to paint Sandusky’s interactions with children as misunderstood and part of a lifelong effort to help, rather than victimize them. “Jerry, in my opinion, loves kids so much that he does things none of us would ever do,” Amendola said at the start of trial. Lawyers pursuing a credibility defense try to give jurors reasons to disbelieve the narrative presented by prosecutors, and a financial gain motive or a changing story can be part of that, said University of Pittsburgh law professor David A. Harris. “This is all standard procedure for building a reasonable doubt defense,” said Harris, who has worked as a defense lawyer and prosecutor. “What they don’t have here is any way to say, ‘OK, these kids have been molested,

but somebody else did it.’ ” The first four days of testimony, however, may have already cast the die, if jurors have made up their minds about the credibility of the eight accusers, young men ages 18 to 28, six without a father in their lives, three who have never known their fathers. That doesn’t mean they can’t be swayed by defense evidence, and the judge will caution them to keep an open mind, Harris said. “But what we’re talking about is human nature here, and people have heard a lot already,” he said. In a large and crowded courtroom, with a crush of national media watching their every word, the accusers recounted in

detail their experiences with the 68-year-old Sandusky, allegations that include severe sexual attacks of children too scared and too small to escape or fight back. Their testimony is the heart of the case the government has been trying to prove, in the words of lead prosecutor Joe McGettigan, that Sandusky has been a predatory pedophile. The men said he plied them as children with gifts, dazzled them with the prestige of Penn State’s vaunted football program and then scaled up physical contact from a hand on the knee or a fatherly kiss to fondling, repeated oral sex and in some cases violent anal rape.

In a recent court filing, Sandusky’s lawyers have asked the judge to allow them to put before jurors the out-of-court statements made by the former Penn State president Graham Spanier and Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, two university administrators who are fighting criminal charges they lied to the Sandusky grand jury and did not properly report suspected child abuse. If permitted, that could help Sandusky undercut the credibility of a witness who says he saw Sandusky sexually abusing a yet-unidentified boy in a team shower more than a decade ago. The judge has not ruled on the request. The defense also wants Cle-

Football: Top model for play

WHEN IT comes to fantasy sports, baseball is like Emma Stone. Yes, she’s a beautiful actress who is talented, smart, charming and a whole bunch of other complimentary adjectives. The kind of person who lights up any room she’s in. Unless that room happens to be one in which Kate Upton is in. The uber supermodel and Sports Illustrated cover girl is responsible for more turned heads than a tennis match on an ocean liner. She’s also, if we are to continue the metaphor, the fantasy sports equivalent of football. So, for one week, let’s turn our attention away from Emma Stone (We’ll be back, Emma. Don’t cry) and over to Kate Upton. Not literally, unfortunately. But in a metaphysical fantasy sports kind of way. Most of us are about two months away from football draft day, but we’re starting to dip our toes into a little research and put together draft wish lists. So just for fun, here’s a Fantasy Football Top 10 list for June. It won’t look this way two months from now. Training camp and preseason games will have their impact, but it will act as a benchmark to see how the fantasy landscape evolves. 1: Arian Foster, RB, Texans. He finished 2011 with 1,224 yards and 12 total TDs – and he missed three games and most of a fourth. Houston loves to run the ball and use their RBs in the passing game, so this position is a fantasy juggernaut. If you get Foster, do yourself a favor and grab backup Ben Tate in later rounds. 2: LeSean McCoy, RB, Eagles. You can’t argue with 20 TDs – 17 rushing, 3 receiving. When the Eagles score a TD, it’s probably going to be McCoy who does it. He was responsible for 43 percent of them in 2011. There is no sign his role will be any different in 2012. 3: Ray Rice, RB, Ravens. This guy is the NFL’s Swiss Army knife: He does everything. He gains tons of yards on the ground, scores mucho TDs and tacks on WR-like numbers is the passing game. With his role as a receiver, you could make a case for Rice to be higher on the list, but he sure as heck won’t be any lower. 4: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers. The NFL has really changed. Gone are the days when running backs dominated the first round of fantasy drafts. Other than a few RBs, it’s the QBs who score the most fantasy points. And you’re not going to find a more capable stat beast than the Packers’ Rodgers. He plays on the ideal team for passing numbers: Green Bay throws first, and asks questions later.

The Yankees’ Derek Jeter, center, scores on a sacrifice fly by Mark Teixeira as Nationals catcher Jhonatan Solano looks out during the first inning Sunday at Nationals Park in Washington.

Yankees extend win streak to 9 WASHINGTON — Ivan Nova pitched effectively into the eighth inning to win his fifth straight start, Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano hit solo homers and the New York Yankees beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 on Sunday for their ninth consecutive victory Nova (9-2) gave up seven hits in 72⁄3 innings, keeping him unbeaten in his last 15 road starts — a streak that’s been going for more than a year. He is 12-0 away from Yankee Stadium since losing to the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim on June 3, 2011. Granderson homered off Edwin Jackson (3-4) in the fifth to break a 1-all tie. Cano made it a two-run cushion in the seventh against Tom Gorzelanny as the Yankees swept a three-game series between division leaders to extend their longest winning streak since May 2009. They’ve also won seven in a row on the road and have swept three consecutive series of three games or more for the first time since 1998. Rafael Soriano pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save. Blue Jays 6, Phillies 2

TORONTO — Colby Rasmus hit a two-run homer, Brett Cecil won for the first time in almost a year and Toronto completed a three-game sweep of skidding Philadelphia. Rasmus went 3 for 4 with three RBIs. He also scored twice and came within a triple of the cycle. The Blue Jays swept the last-place Phillies for the second time in team history. Philadelphia lost for the 12th time in 15 games. Starting for the first time this season after being promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas last week, Cecil (1-0) allowed two runs and five hits in five innings. He struck out five. Luis Perez worked three innings and Jason Frasor finished up. Kyle Kendrick (2-7) lost his third straight start. Jim Thome homered for the Phillies, making him the fourth player in major league history to hit at least 100 home runs with three teams. Darrell Evans, Reggie Jackson and Alex Rodriguez are the others. Reds 3, Mets 1

NEW YORK — Brandon Phillips hit a tiebreaking single and made a between-the-legs flip to start a flashy double play, leading Johnny Cueto and Cincinnati over the New York Mets for its sixth straight win. Red Sox 7, Cubs 4

CHICAGO – David Ortiz hit his 16th home run of the season and had two RBIs in Boston’s victory. Pirates 9, Indians 5

CLEVELAND — Pedro Alvarez drove in a career-high six runs with his second twohomer game in two days, powering Pittsburgh past the Cleveland Indians. Alvarez hit three-run homers in the fourth and fifth innings for his fourth career multihomer game. He also doubled in his

The San Diego Chargers said Sunday that running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who was the NFL MVP in 2006 with San Diego and is the fifth-leading rusher in league history, will resign with the team on Monday and then announce his retirement.

SAN DIEGO — LaDainian Tomlinson will retire from the NFL as a member of the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers said Sunday that Tomlinson, who was the NFL MVP in 2006 with San Diego and

is the fifth-leading rusher in league history, will re-sign with the team on Monday and then announce his retirement. Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by San Diego in 2001 and spent the first nine years of his career with the Chargers. He played the last two seasons with the Jets. Tomlinson said recently that he might continue his career if the right opportunity was available. Some fans hoped the Chargers would bring back Tomlinson as a

third-down back, but that appeared impossible as long as general manager A.J. Smith is in control. Tomlinson, one of the biggest stars in Chargers history, had a less-than-smooth separation with San Diego in February 2010. While his production had fallen off and injuries were mounting, he had a public tiff with Smith. The GM even mocked the star running back at one point when Tomlinson said he’d like to finish his career in San Diego.

Days after his release from the Chargers, Tomlinson held a tearful news conference at the suburban country club where he and his wife lived. Tomlinson finishes his career with 13,684 yards and 145 touchdowns. Tomlinson won the MVP in ‘06, ASSOCIATED PRESS when he set league single-season records with 31 touchdowns, inTomlinson spoke at the public He ran for 914 yards in 2010 with cluding 28 rushing, and186 points.

Tiger’s weekend of frustration Stony Brook’s run

ends vs. Seminoles

By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — Tiger Woods tried his best to put a positive spin on things, even when there was nothing positive about his weekend. Another opportunity lost. Another chance to win a major championship gone. For two rounds, Woods seemed to be in command in the U.S. Open. Then came a weekend of frustration that ran his winless streak in major championships to four years and raised even more questions about his ability to win the titles he used to take for granted. He came into the final round Sunday still contending he had a chance at Olympic Club. Then he got off to a bogey-bogey-double bogey start that took away any chance of him mounting a charge up the leaderboard. Woods made some birdies coming in, but by then it was too late. He finished with a 3over 73 that left him six shots back of winner Webb Simpson in a tournament Woods seemed poised to win after two rounds. Tied for the lead going into the weekend, his game fell apart with a series of poor drives, chunked shots and putts that didn’t come close to the hole. He was 8-over-par for the weekend, even while insisting that he did everything mostly right. “I hit the ball very well the first two days and, as I said yesterday, I was just a fraction off just a couple yards here and there and that’s all it takes,” Woods said. “I had so many balls that landed in the fairway that went into the rough.” Keeping the ball in the fairway was a challenge for all players at Olympic, where sidehill spins often sent balls into the deep grass. Woods hit 33 of 56 fairways on the week, but also had 123 putts as he struggled on the greens. He was 1 under and confident of his chances as he teed off in the third round tied for the lead with Jim Furyk and David Toms, but a fat 75 on Saturday was his undoing. Woods said his much-discussed swing

much of the final round until he snap-hooked his tee shot on the par-5 16th hole to fall out of the lead for the first time all day, and was unable to get it back. Needing a birdie on the final hole, he hit into the bunker. He crouched and clamped his teeth onto the shaft of his wedge. Furyk made bogey on the final hole and closed with a 74, a final round without a single birdie. McDowell, who made four bogeys on the front nine, at least gave himself a chance with a 20foot birdie putt on the 17th and a shot into the 18th that had him sprinting up the hill to see what

fourth-quarter sloppiness by getting enough big plays from their Big Three. James scored 30 and 32 points in the first two games, his two best finals performances. He fell just shy of another 30-point effort but reached his 20 points for the 20th time this postseason, two shy of Wade’s franchise record set in 2006. “It’s all about chemistry,” James said. “We understand where we like to get the ball, what we like to do in close situations, and it’s good to see us execute down the stretch. But more importantly it was great to see we were able to get stops. That’s where the game is won and we did that.”

changes worked well and that he was happy for the most part with how he hit it all week. His biggest problem on the weekend, he said, were distances that left him between clubs and shots that went into the rough despite being only a few shots off. “I’m excited about the consistency of it,” Woods said. “How well I hit the ball all week, really. I didn’t really miss it that badly this week. The misses were just a fraction off, which is great. That’s what we want to have happen. And this golf course is just so demanding that a fraction off you pay a price.” Though Woods showed signs of being able to contend and win a major championship again, he has not won one since taking the U.S. Open in a playoff with Rocco Mediate at

Torrey Pines in 2008. Since then, he has gone through surgeries, scandal and a rebuilding of his swing that he keeps insisting is coming along fine. Woods remains stuck at the age of 36 with 14 major titles, behind the record of18 held by Jack Nicklaus that he covets so much. Asked if he felt like this was a good opportunity that got away, Woods said that could be said about a lot of tournaments. When it was pointed out that this was a U.S. Open and the majors only come around four times a year, he stuck to his script. “Finished close in major championships before, so I had a chance this week and I’ll get after it in another week in (Washington) D.C.,” he said.

kind of chance he had. The putt stayed left of the hole the entire way, and he had to settle for a 73. McDowell shared second place with Michael Thompson, who closed with a 67 and waited two hours to see if it would be good enough. Tiger Woods, starting five shots behind, played the first six holes in 6-over par and was never a factor. He shot 73 and finished six strokes back. Furyk was fuming, mostly at himself, for blowing a chance at his second U.S. Open title. He also was surprised that the USGA moved the tee up100 yards on the 16th hole to play 569 yards. It was reachable in two shots for some players, though the shape of the hole featured a sharp left turn. “There’s no way when we play

our practice rounds you’re going to hit a shot from a tee 100 yards up unless someone tells you,” Furyk said. “But the rest of the field had that same shot to hit today, and I’m pretty sure no one hit as (bad) a shot as I did. I have no one to blame but myself. “I was tied for the lead, sitting on the 16th tee,” he said. “I’ve got wedges in my hand, or reachable par 5s, on the way in and one birdie wins the golf tournament. I’m definitely frustrated.” But he gave Simpson his due. Of the last18 players to tee off in the final round, Simpson was the only one to break par. That didn’t seem likely when Simpson was six shots behind as he headed to the sixth hole, the toughest at Olympic. That’s where he started his big run.

His 7-iron landed in the rough and rolled 5 feet away for birdie. He made birdie on the next two holes, including a15-footer on the par-3 eighth. And his wedge into the 10th settled 3 feet away, putting him into the mix for the rest of the day. “It was a cool day,” Simpson said. “I had a peace all day. I knew it was a tough golf course. I probably prayed more the last three holes than I ever did in my life.” Simpson’s shot from the rough on the 18th hole went just right of the green and disappeared into a hole, a circle of dirt about the size of a sprinkler cap. With a clump of grass behind the ball, he had a bold stroke for such a nervy shot and it came out perfectly, rolling 3 feet by the hole for his much-needed par.

Chris Bosh had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, who can win a second title by winning the next two games at home. They seemed out of it when Oklahoma City opened a 10point lead midway through the third. But Durant went out, Thunder coach Scott Brooks decided to sit Westbrook with him, and the Heat charged into the lead by the end of the period. The Thunder had grabbed their last lead at 77-76 on James Harden’s basket with 7:32 left. James answered with two free throws about 20 seconds later, and the teams would trade turnovers and stops over the next couple of tense minutes. Wade then converted a threepoint play, and another minute went by before James powered to the basket, Durant trying to get in position to draw a charge

but watching helplessly as he picked up his fifth foul. James made the free throw for an 84-77 advantage with 3:47 to play. After another basket by James, the Thunder had one last burst — haven’t they always in this series? — ripping off six straight points to get within one before Bosh made a pair of free throws with 1:19 to play. Durant missed badly on a wild shot attempt, and the Thunder missed another chance when Westbrook was off from behind the arc. James hit a free throw for a four-point lead with 16 seconds to go and Wade added two to close it out. “It’s very hard,” James said. “Both teams are very active defensively and both teams make it hard on one another in the half court so when you get stops you try to get early offense, it always helps and we were able to do that

a little bit.” The series made its way from Oklahoma City, where fans in blue shirts filled every seat, to Miami, where white shirts hung on empty chairs just minutes before the tip. The late arrivals in Oklahoma City had been the Thunder players, who fell into big early deficits and acknowledged some first-time finals jitters in Game 1. Brooks said he heard the cries to change his starting lineup but said it never crossed his mind.

OMAHA, Neb. — Florida State capitalized on a throwing error to score six runs in the third inning, and the Seminoles ended Stony Brook’s surprise appearance in the College World Series with a 12-2 victory on Sunday. Justin Gonzalez and Devon Travis homered to help the Seminoles build an early 9-0 lead against the CWS first-timers from Long Island. FSU (49-16) rebounded from a 4-3, 12-inning loss to Arizona on Friday and scored at least 12 runs for the third time in four games. Stony Brook (52-15) stunned the college baseball world by upsetting six-time national champion LSU in a three-game super regional to reach the CWS. But the Seawolves were beaten 9-1 by UCLA on Friday and outscored 21-3 in their two games in Omaha. FSU starter Mike Compton (12-2) allowed two runs and six

EARNHARDT Continued from Page 1B

“Dale had the fastest car all day,” Stewart said. “It’s not a national holiday, guys. This morning they were celebrating his fourth anniversary of his last win, so I guess we’re all in a state of mourning now, because he’s broke that string now, so I don’t know what we’re all supposed to think.” Earnhardt remains second to Matt Kenseth in the standings. Earnhardt’s 143 races between wins was the sixth-longest streak in Sprint Cup history. Like his last victory in Michigan, this one came on Father’s Day — fitting for the driver whose father has been so revered around NASCAR circles. Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a lastlap crash at the Daytona 500 in 2001. “Junior” is now stock-car racing’s most popular driver — a fact not lost on him in the moments after the win. “To do it for my fans — they stuck behind me for all these years. I know exactly what they’ve been thinking about and how long they’ve been wanting us to get to Victory Lane,” Earnhardt said. “This was for them. I appreciate their loyalty and their support. We wouldn’t have made it back to Victory Lane without it.” Earnhardt moved past pole winner Marcos Ambrose on lap 70 to take the lead, and although Stewart would lead for a bit, Earnhardt was in front again not long after the race’s halfway point. Earnhardt led on lap 171, after a pitting cycle. With 25 laps

hits in six innings. Brandon McNitt (8-4) went 32⁄3 innings and gave up nine runs, four earned. Arizona 4, UCLA 0 OMAHA, Neb. — Konner Wade pitched a five-hit shutout, Arizona did its scoring on five straight fourth-inning hits, and the Wildcats beat Pac-12 rival UCLA in the College World Series on Sunday night. The win puts the Wildcats (45-17) in control of Bracket 1 and gives them three days off. They are one win from the bestof-three finals, in which they would play for their fourth national title and first since 1986. UCLA (48-15), which lost for the first time in 11 games, plays Florida State in an elimination game on Tuesday. Wade (10-3) threw his fifth complete game of the season. Seth Mejias-Brean’s bases-loaded single drove in the Wildcats’ first two runs, and Bobby Brown followed with a two-RBI double.

remaining, he was ahead by 1.978 seconds. With 10 remaining, he had built a 5.468-second cushion. The end was almost anticlimactic — and it was certainly a relief for Earnhardt. After finally winning, Earnhardt stopped in front of the grandstand and spun his wheels in front of thousands of fans who were on their feet screaming. It was the 19th Cup victory of Earnhardt’s career and second in 159 starts for Hendrick Motorsports. He had 17 victories in 291 races for Dale Earnhardt Inc. Kenseth finished third in the race, which included eight cautions for 39 laps. After practice and qualifying speeds soared over 200 mph on the newly paved surface at MIS, teams switched left-side tires for the actual race. There were problems almost from the start, when Kurt Busch — back from a one-week suspension for verbally abusing a media member — went into an early spin. Joey Logano, who won last week’s Sprint Cup race and Saturday’s Nationwide race, was out of this one after a multicar crash that brought out a caution from laps 127-132. Almost immediately after the restart, Denny Hamlin’s Toyota went sliding across the grass and caught fire. The flames were extinguished and Hamlin got out of the vehicle OK. Ambrose finished ninth after a qualifying lap of over 203 mph. He was the first Cup driver to win the pole at over 200 since 1987. Earnhardt led for 95 laps. Nobody else led more than 38.

He finally won his first WilkesBarre Triathlon last year after numerous attempts. And now he’s finally secured a victory in the duathlon. Robbins went out easy over the first 3-mile run. “I fell in behind (Bornfasi Nyandusi Omurwa, the Kenyan native who now lives in Kingston) half way over the Market Street Bridge (just a short distance into the race) and just stayed there,” Robbins said. “Nobody was closing on me, so I just tried to stay steady, consistent.” The bike was a different story. “I tried to ride hard,” Robbins said about the bike portion of the race. “I was starting to feel it over the second run. It was tough. So I just tried to get into a relatively steady pace to the finish.” Heidi Glovack, a 32-year-old from East Syracuse, N.Y., won the female division of the race finishing in 1:27:47, winning $100. Deedra Porfirio, 36, of West Pittston, finished second in 1:32:34, winning $75. Ann Zoranski, 41, of Swoyersville, finished third, 1:02 behind Porfirio, winning $50. “My first run was a bit slow,” Glovack said. “But I had a good bike. I passed two females going up a hill about five miles into the bike and took over the lead. At the turnaround of the bike race, I could see that there were no females challenging me. My second run was great. I felt strong. Then I just started picking off the boys on my way to the finish.” Robbins will compete in the Iron Man Mont Tremblant in Quebec in August. Glovack will

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ended their four-game series against Syracuse in high fashion, winning 6-2 on Sunday afternoon at Alliance Bank Stadium. The Yankees (40-30) started off by scoring three runs in the first inning with Chris Dickerson continuing right where he left off Saturday by hitting his ninth double of the season, but a throwing error by Chiefs third baseman Jarrett Hoffpauir allowed him to advance to third base. Corban Joseph batted next and hit a sacrifice fly to center field, which allowed Dickerson to score the first run of the game for the Yankees. Ronnier Mustelier doubled to left field, and after a Jack Cust single on a line drive to center, Mustelier came home to extend the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lead to 2-0. The Yankees weren’t done yet, as a Russell Branyan single allowed Cust to advance to second base, and Francisco Cervelli followed with a double to allow Cust to score and make the game 3-0. In the bottom of the fifth, the Yankees kept things going with a Corban Joseph home run, his fourth of the season, off Chiefs starting pitcher Tanner Roark (3-9, 5.74 ERA), giving Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a 4-0 lead. Cervelli reached base with a single in the sixth inning, and a Colin Curtis triple brought him home, putting the Yankees up 5-0. After a ground out by Kevin


Russo, Ramiro Pena hit a sacrifice fly into foul territory on the right-field side, bringing Curtis in with the Yankees’ sixth run of the game. Syracuse finally got on the board in the top of the seventh inning after Brett Carroll nailed a home run off Yankees starting pitcher Ramon Ortiz (6-3, 3.13 ERA) to trim the lead to 6-1. From there Xavier Paul was walked, and Carlos Rivero smacked a douYANKEES ble to make it 6-2. The Yankees are five games CHIEFS behind the firstplace Pawtucket Red Sox in the International League North Division. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre will travel to Louisville to take on the Bats in an four-game series starting today at 7:05 p.m. The Yankees will start righthanded pitcher John Maine (1-0, 6.00) for his first start as a Yankee.

136 Narrows Rd., Larksville, PA














Grandparents’ early memories could create a cherished family history Dear Abby: My parents are approaching their 80s, and I’d like to recommend to seniors that a cherished gift to their children and grandchildren would be a journal or family history book written by them describing their childhood memories and early married years. So many funny stories and historical markers of an earlier time will be lost if they’re not shared. Children and grandchildren can be given the chance to see through your eyes and your memories what their aunts, uncles and grandparents were like, and you can laugh together at the silly things that happened when you were young.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE The family history can be passed from one generation to the next, and I cannot think of a more special gift. — Charlene in Camarillo, Calif. Dear Charlene: That’s a splendid idea. However, I would urge children and grandchildren to not wait for the family history, but to INTERVIEW their parents and grandparents now, with pencil in hand. Dear Abby: I have a good friend who is married to an abrasive, negative woman. She never has anything nice to say about anyone or anything.


I value this friend and would like to continue our friendship, but I don’t want his wife’s negative energy around my family. Should I explain that he and his children are welcome in our home, but his wife is not? Or should I arrange to see him only when his wife is occupied elsewhere? — S.K. Out West Dear S.K.: What a sad situation. Your friend’s wife’s behavior indicates that she’s an unhappy and troubled woman. As a couple, they probably need all the friends they can get. To tell this man that you want to protect your family from his wife’s “negative energy” could end the friendship. Seeing him when his wife is otherwise occupied would be far more diplomatic.


Dear Abby: I’m a fairly intelligent 45-year-old woman. After being single for four years, I began dating a man my age with whom I share many interests. Early on, we had a few fights — possibly because we were both hurt in our previous relationships and were having a hard time adjusting to and trusting a new person. Things have settled down now. Most of our time is spent together even though we live an hour apart, and we’re considered a couple by our friends. I enjoy the time we spend together, but I keep remembering our early fights and I worry about repeats. I think because of our pasts we’ll date for a long time before either of us considers moving in or making serious commitments. My question is, how can you know

if you’re on the right path? — A Little Skittish in Canada Dear Skittish: The right path usually isn’t a short sprint. You’re on it when you realize how many common interests you have and how much you enjoy each other’s company (which you do). You’re on the right path when you can be open and honest with each other and work out differences without quarreling. And you’re right: It CAN take some time to get there, but there’s nothing wrong with that. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). What you’re looking for is out there, but you have to start asking the right questions in order to find it. Asking friends is a start. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Most people don’t reach adulthood without a few scars to prove that life can be rough. Be proud of the way you’ve healed. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have much to gain by following the instinct to get to know someone. An outgoing mood prevails, and you’ll expand your circle. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It makes you feel warm and fuzzy when others notice subtle improvements you’ve made to your appearance. Each compliment fans the flames, inspiring you to reach your goal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As the sign of entertainment, you have an inherent awareness that the way you tell the stories of your life makes a difference in how you are perceived and respected. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The person with the big dreams is the most powerful one in the room — even more powerful than the gatekeeper in charge of who is and isn’t allowed to enter a room. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Problems are gifts. Inside each problem is a unique and valuable opportunity. Sometimes you see that opportunity, but right now it helps to have an observant friend point it out to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s nothing wrong with wanting and needing validation for your work, especially when it’s a solo effort.

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

The limited perspective you get from working alone is a huge challenge. Reach out. Ask for opinions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be attracted to strange scenes. If it doesn’t look like anything you’ve experienced, you want to sign up. You could find love, friendship, adventure or work by mingling in a new place. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may be uncharacteristically shy or reluctant to talk about yourself around the people you meet today. It’s because you see life as a creative process. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Instead of giving a person the benefit of the doubt, you do something more radically generous. You give the entire benefit without a moment of hesitation or a shred of doubt. You give it your all. That’s just how you roll. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve always been an empathic person, and it’s surprising to you that not everyone has this gift. Some simply can’t relate to how others are feeling. You’ll be the one to make up for those people today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 18). You keep loved ones guessing with your ability to make something out of nothing. They’ll stay tuned to see what you do next, and you’ll always have an audience when you want one. August and November are the most romantic months, while December and March feature financial and professional gains. Leo and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 20, 13, 5 and 42.
