He was able to get his own place in November, thanks largely to a grant Luzerne County government received to move chronically homeless people into permanent housing.

LAS VEGAS — “The Bold and the Beautiful” won drama series honors for the third consecutive year at the Daytime Emmys in a bittersweet ceremony that marked the daytime departures of two veteran soap operas, talk show queen Oprah Winfrey and Regis Philbin. Laura Wright of “General Hospital” and Michael Park of “As the World Turns” earned lead actress and actor honors. Brittany Allen of “All My Children” claimed the show’s final Daytime Emmy, winning for younger actress in a drama series. The ABC soap is leaving the air, along with the network’s “One Life to Live,” after more than 40 years because of declining ratings. Jonathan Jackson of “General Hospital” and Heather Tom of “The Bold and the Beautiful” earned trophies as supporting actor and actress in a bittersweet ceremony at the Las Vegas Hilton. Jackson, who plays Lucky Spencer on the ABC soap, brought his young son and daughter onstage with him to accept the first award presented on the live CBS telecast. “It’s Father’s Day. I couldn’t resist,” he said. Tom, a veteran soap actress who plays Katie Logan Spencer the CBS show, won for the first

time after five nominations in the supporting category. “I have to thank the daytime community as a whole,” she said. “You have been my home for most of my life and I am so grateful for that.” Also on on their way out of daytime are Oprah Winfrey, Regis Philbin and Meredith Vieira. “Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune” tied for best game show, fitting since the respective hosts, Alex Trebek and Pat Sajak, received lifetime achievement awards during the show. Those shows dethroned “Cash Cab,” which had won three straight years. But Ben Bailey of “Cash Cab” took home a trophy, repeating as

best game show host. He didn’t immediately appear to accept his award, leaving presenter Tracey E. Bregman to ask the audience, “Anybody?” A harried Bailey walked out from backstage, where he said he had been using the restroom when he heard his name called. Backstage, Bailey admitted he hadn’t washed his hands but promised to do so, which surely would have met the approval of Dr. Mehmet Oz. Oz repeated as best talk-show host, while his “The Dr. Oz Show” won for best talk show-informative. Oz, one of Oprah Winfrey’s proteges, is being rewarded in many markets with the 4 p.m. slot that Winfrey ruled for so many years. “I don’t feel pressure,” he said backstage. “I feel honored and I feel responsibility to give to the audience what she did so beautifully for 25 years.” Oz added, “I think I’ll have Oprah on as a guest sooner rather than later.” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” earned best talk show-entertainment honors for the second straight year, although she skipped the ceremony. In a tribute to Winfrey, Gladys Knight sang “That’s What Friends Are For” as a montage of the talk queen’s shows played behind her. Oz paid tribute, as did frequent Oprah guest Celine Dion, who sang “Because You Loved Me” from the stage at Caesar’s Palace, where she performs. Winfrey appeared on tape with her staff gathered behind her and holding the Crystal Pillar award she was given for changing the face of daytime television.

Sugarland hits high note

Country duo gets Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain season going in fine style. R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON Times Leader Correspondent

MOOSIC – Best-selling duo Sugarland kicked off the summer concert season at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain Saturday with a crowd-pleasing performance of its radio-friendly, hook-filled brand of country music. The songs from “The Incredible Machine,” the group’s fourth album, which was previewed during last year’s Montage Mountain show, have really grown over the past year on stage, and the duo expertly alternated between its songs and its greatest hits throughout Saturday’s show. Singer Jennifer Nettles and guitarist Kristian Bush began with a great one-two punch of “All We Are” and “Stuck Like Glue” from the latest album, followed by equally impressive renditions of “It Happens” and “Settlin’” as the crowd got louder af-

ter each. Sugarland kept up the momentum early with fine versions of the newer song “Tonight” and old favorite “All I Want To Do.” Nettles then sported some sort of white hoop skirt that looked like it could be one of Lady Gaga’s rejects for an otherwise good rendition of the new album’s title song. Other early highlights included new album tunes “Every Girl Like Me” and “Little Miss,” and an acoustic, campfire version of the group’s first hit “Baby Girl.” The only thing missing from the early part of the show was Sugarland’s usually eclectic, funky mix of cover songs, but it did do a snippet of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” a little bit later in the evening. Singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, backed by a fine four-piece band, opened the show with a strong 40-minute set. Her brand of piano-based pop went over well with the country music loving crowd, especially her big hit “Love Song,” which Bareilles did early in the evening. Highlights included the up-tempo “King of Anything” and “Let It Rain,” which featured the singer on

acoustic guitar. She ended her set with a solo piano version of “Gravity” from her first album, “Little Voice.” Sugarland released its debut album in October 2004 and was a trio until Kristen Hall left in December 2005. The group has had five No. 1 hits, including three from its third album, “Love on the Inside.” Latest album “The Incredible Machine,” which like its predecessor topped both the Billboard 200 and the Top Country Albums charts, was released in October 2010 and spawned the No. 2 hit “Stuck Like Glue.” Sugarland has sold more than 9 million CDs and 5 million digital downloads, and has racked up more than a dozen major awards, including the 2006 Academy of Country Music award for Top New Duo or Vocal Group and top vocal duo honors in 2010 from the Country Music Association and in 2011 from the Academy of Country Music. Next stop on Sugarland’s tour is Thursday at the James Brown Arena in Augusta, Ga. The next concert at the Toyota Pavilion is Def Leppard with Heart on June 29.

Area Blue has new plan for business

LOCAL Charter school gets court boost

Blue Cross introduces AffordaBlue with up to 20 percent savings on premiums. By ANDREW M. SEDER

Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania today will introduce AffordaBlue, a new health insurance product designed to specifically address the needs of local business customers. Local businesses that choose AffordaBlue may be T O L E A R N able to save up to 20 percent on MORE their insurance To find out premiums commore about pared to other AffordaBlue, plans, the Wilkescall 866-852Barre-based com9408, or visit pany said. Currently the participating physicians are located in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties, said Anthony Matrisciano, a company spokesman. He said as the plan moves forward, additional physicians in other counties will be added. He also said an individual AffordaBlue program is going to be introduced later this year. The company opted to initiate the business-geared product first to demonstrate that it has listened to area companies who have made it clear they wanted another option to save them and their employees money. “We have been talking to our customers for more than a year about ways to help them meet their health care needs, while also helping them to manage their costs,” said Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s Senior Vice President Paul Holdren. “We developed AffordaBlue based on that feedback to give local businesses more solutions to better manage health care expenses. In the “Small Business Problems and Priorities” survey recently conducted by the National Federation of Independent Businesses, health care costs were identified as the biggest concern for business owners across the U.S. According to the survey, rising premiums are forcing many businesses nationwide to ask their employees to contribute more to their premiums, and to pay higher deductibles and co-pays for their care. AffordaBlue builds on Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s provider network. With AffordaBlue, however, customers that use preferred doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals get even deeper discounts. “AffordaBlue offers the employee lower prices for using preferred See HEALTH, Page 9A





Closing arguments in case

Closing arguments are scheduled today in the corruption trial of Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Robert C. Cordaro. Cordaro testified in his own behalf in federal court in Scranton last week. A series of character witnesses also testified for CorMunchak daro before U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo adjourned trial on Friday. Munchak, 64, of Scranton, and Cordaro, 50, of Dunmore, were originally indicted by a grand jury Cordaro on March 16, 2010, on 40 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, bribery, extortion and tax evasion. Prosecutors later modified the indictment, which now contains 41 counts. The government alleges that from 2003 to 2007, Munchak and Cordaro, who was voted out of office in 2007, abused their positions of majority commissioners by accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts from eight companies and other individuals.

When an officer tried to stop Latshaw he refused to pull over and drove away onto East Foothills Drive and then onto Freedom Road at speeds between 90 and 100 miles per hour. Latshaw failed to make a turn and crashed the 1999 Pontiac Grand Am he was driving into a guide cable. He fled into the nearby woods and was caught after a 10-minute search by state police, Freeland and Butler Township police departments. Latshaw fled because he had a suspended license and was suspected of driving under the influence of cocaine, police said.

Sacred Heart Church closing not accepted by all Final Mass celebrated on Sunday, but The Sacred Heart Foundation vows to fight on. By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE – Sacred Heart Church celebrated its closing Mass on Sunday despite ongoing appeals by a group of parishioners to stay the diocesan order. “I don’t like what they’re doing here today,” said To see additional church member photos, visit Andrew Hvozdovwww.times ic, as he stood side WilkesBarre’s North End Slovak Club. “It seems Bishop (Joseph C.) Bambera is closing all the Slovak churches in the area and leaving the other churches alone.” Hvozdovic’s son Andrew, pastor of the Church of the Epiphany in Sayre, celebrated the closing Mass along with a number of area clergy. “They assure us it’s not politics,” the elder Hvozdovic added, “but it certainly seems that way to me.” According to Dioceses of Scranton officials, “Sacred Heart is being closed under the Called to Holiness and Mission restructuring process” and its members will consolidate with other area parishes to form St. Andre Bessette Parish on North Main Street.

Parishioners attend the Sacred Heart of Jesus closing Mass on Sunday afternoon in Wilkes-Barre. While many joined in the Mass, The Sacred Heart Wilkes-Barre Foundation is protesting the closing.

“Christianity is about unity; not division,” said one member. “People feel what they feel, and we’re not here to judge their motives. I personally welcome the move.” In answer to the diocesan order, a group of more than 900 people joined together to form The Sacred Heart Foundation, which filed a motion to formally protest the church’s closing to the Vatican. “This is a sad day,” said Noreen Foti, president of The Sacred Heart Foundation. “We wel-

come consolidation with other parishes, but we feel they’re closing the wrong church.” According to foundation members, before the announcement of closing, Sacred Heart was the most financially sound parish slated to be closed in the Scranton Diocese. “This church has generated income of over $500,000 a year for the last seven years,” said Anthony Foti, chairman of the Sacred Heart Foundation. “If it’s not about money, then I honestly don’t know what it’s about.

There’s a long way to go until our appeal runs its course.” Foti, a licensed engineer and MIT graduate, said the church conducted an informal facilities study in 2003 that identified several potential areas of concern with the aging structure. However, no formal engineering or architectural study was completed on the property. “The diocese claims it will take millions to repair the church,” he said. “I inspected this building from top to bottom last year and I can assure you

Envoy upset over Karzai remarks

KABUL, Afghanistan — The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan publicly reproached Afghanistan’s president Sunday for painting American forces here as occupiers and enemies — one of the strongest signs yet that Afghanistan’s international allies are no longer willing to excuse President Hamid Karzai’s harangues as harmless domestic politicking. U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry told university students and faculty in the western city of Herat that he felt the need to speak from his heart as he reaches the end of his two-year tour as ambassador. The words that came next were strongly critical of the Afghan

president, without naming Karzai. “I find occasional comments from some of your leaders hurtful and inappropriate,” Eikenberry told the crowd according to a Eikenberry transcript of the speech. In recent speeches, Karzai has said the U.S. is in danger of becoming an occupying force, threatened to take unspecified “unilateral action” against international forces that conduct air strikes and accused international allies of undermining and corrupting his government. The U.S. envoy hit back hard. “When Americans, who are serving in your country at great cost in terms of lives and treasure, hear themselves compared with occupiers, told that they are only here to advance their own interest, and likened to the brutal enemies of the Afghan people ... they are filled

with confusion and grow weary of our effort here,” Eikenberry said. “Mothers and fathers of fallen soldiers, spouses of soldiers who have lost arms and legs, children of those who lost their lives in your country — they ask themselves about the meaning of their loved one’s sacrifice.” Eikenberry’s tour as ambassador has been strained by his tense relationship with Karzai. In a classified memo in 2009, Eikenberry said that Karzai was not a reliable partner with whom to rebuild Afghanistan. The memo were leaked to the press, and Eikenberry has spent the time since trying to repair the fractured relationship. He has repeatedly insisted that he and Karzai work well and comfortably together. Now, as he prepares to hand over the post to Ryan Crocker, Eikenberry appears to have decided to speak more candidly. “When we hear ourselves being called occupiers and worse, our pride is of-

fended, and we begin to lose our inspiration to carry on,” Eikenberry said. His words were especially ominous, coming just a month before the beginning of a scheduled drawdown of American troops. President Barack Obama has pledged to start bringing some soldiers home in July but has not yet announced how many. Key to any drawdown is the success of plans to gradually transfer oversight of Afghan cities and towns to national security forces. Karzai has said that seven areas will transfer to Afghan control in July, at the same time that the first drawdowns begin. Some of the very areas slated to transition have been struck by high-profile attacks in recent weeks. Herat city was struck by Taliban insurgents last month and Kabul was hit on Saturday by militants dressed in Afghan army uniforms who charged a police station and killed nine people before they were gunned down.

killed nine civilians, including two children, adding to its accusations that the alliance is striking nonmilitary targets. NATO acknowledged its planes hit targets in Tripoli in the early hours of Sunday and said it was investigating whether it was responsible. Whether the airstrikes are eventually confirmed or not, the allegations provided supporters of Moammar Gadhafi’s regime a new rallying point against the international intervention in Libya’s civil war. The foreign minister called for a “global jihad” on the West in response.

Some levees spilling over

Several levees in northern Missouri were failing Sunday to hold back the surge of water being released from upstream dams. Authorities said water — some of it from recent rain — began pouring over levees Saturday night and Sunday morning in Holt and Atchison counties, flooding farmland and numerous homes and cabins. A hole in the side of a Holt County levee continued to grow Sunday, deluging the state park and recreational area of Big Lake, 78 miles north of Kansas City. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers spokesman Kevin Wingert said engineers would monitor the overtopping to try to determine how much of an effect it will have on water flows downstream. “It’s too early to say what the full impact will be on it,” he said. Meanwhile, the Nebraska Public Power District issued a flooding alert Sunday for its nuclear power plant in southeast Nebraska as the Missouri River continues to rise. REFUGEE CAMP, TURKEY

Troops burn homes, bakery

Syrian troops combing through restive villages near the Turkish border set fire to homes and a bakery Sunday, cutting off a lifeline to thousands of uprooted people stranded in miserable open-air encampments. Activists said the military carried out mass arrests and threw up checkpoints in the village of Bdama and surrounding areas to block residents from fleeing across the frontier, as thousands of others have done. Turkey, whose leaders have denounced the Damascus regime’s deadly crackdown on dissent, began distributing food to those encamped on the Syrian side of the border, in the first such aid mission since the campaign against anti-government protesters turned into a refugee crisis two weeks ago. People from the Syrian side were collecting food at the border to take to the stranded families, the local Turkish governor’s office said. NEW YORK

Four killed in pharmacy

Police say four people have been shot to death at a pharmacy on New York’s Long Island. Suffolk County police said officers responded to Haven Drugs, in Medford, just before 10:30 a.m. Sunday after getting a call about gunfire. A law enforcement official confirmed that four people were killed in the shooting, but was unable to immediately provide additional information. The official was not authorized to release details on the shooting and spoke on condition of anonymity. Police told local media at the scene that the dead included two employees and two customers. No suspects were in custody.

Al-Qaida interest turns to kidnapping

Bin Laden’s interest in kidnapping as a cash-raiser bolsters accounts that a financial squeeze has hit home. By STEPHEN BRAUN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Pressured by increased scrutiny of terrorist money sources and strikes aimed at its financiers, al-Qaida’s core organization in Pakistan has turned to kidnapping for ransom to offset dwindling cash reserves, according to U.S. officials and information in files retrieved from Osama bin Laden’s compound. Bin Laden’s interest in kidnapping as a cash-raiser bolsters accounts that the financial squeeze has staggered al-Qaida, forcing it to search for alternative funding sources. Officials would not detail alQaida’s role in specific crimes, but the group’s affiliates have targeted diplomats, tourists and merchants. His awareness of al-Qaida’s growing

use of kidnapping is “There are evidence that even in clearly times isolation behind high walls in Abbottabad, for them when Pakistan, bin Laden money is kept tabs on how his tight.” network moved its money. The al-Qaida Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger founder was killed last House month by U.S. Navy Intelligence SEALs. Committee “There are clearly times for them when money is tight,” said Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. “We’ve seen that their donors have been less dependable and we’re seeing them turning more to kidnapping as a way of keeping the money coming in.” Experts from the CIA’s National Counterterrorism Center, the Treasury Department and the FBI and military are trying to learn more from the recovered files about al-Qaida’s money sources and

the impact of bin Laden’s death on the group’s financial future. They hope to identify important al-Qaida donors, especially wealthy Persian Gulf figures who dealt with bin Laden dating to his work with Afghan fighters in the campaign against Soviet occupiers in the late 1980s. The Treasury Department’s acting undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, David Cohen, said U.S. efforts are focused on disrupting al-Qaida’s cash flow from donors, fundraisers and facilitators. “Al-Qaida’s supporters ought to be wondering if their identities have been revealed,” Cohen said. Analysts are examining lists of numbers found in bin Laden’s files, hoping to find bank accounts, credit cards or ledgers depicting the financial underpinnings of network known to demand strict accounting from its operatives. Al-Qaida’s leadership inside Pakistan rarely championed kidnappings publicly and was not known previously to widely support its use as a funding source.

Some Methodist clergy defy gay marriage ban

Pastors face disciplinary action or dismissal from the church for participating in ceremonies. By DINESH RAMDE Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — A growing number of pastors in the United Methodist Church say they’re no longer willing to obey a church rule that prohibits them from officiating at same-sex marriages, despite the potential threat of being disciplined or dismissed from the church. In some parts of the U.S., Methodist pastors have been marrying same-sex couples or conducting blessing ceremonies for same-sex unions for years with little fanfare and no backlash from the denomination. Calls to overturn the rule have become increasingly vocal in recent weeks, ratcheting up the pressure for the Methodist church to join other mainline Protestant denominations that have be-

come more accepting of openly gay leaders. While trials of pastors who conduct samegender ceremonies have only occurred once every several years, the threat is inDeLong deed real: The Rev. Amy DeLong of Osceola in western Wisconsin faces a three-day trial starting Tuesday on two charges: violating a church prohibition on the ordination of “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” and marrying a lesbian couple. She said she told her supervisors years ago that she was in a lesbian relationship and felt comforted by the support and caring she received in response. While she avoided discussing her relationship in local church settings, she said her efforts to live halfway in the closet and halfway out took such a toll that she finally decided to break her silence. She agreed to marry a lesbian couple in the

fall of 2009. Eventually the two church charges were filed against her. “I would be lying if I said this process hasn’t been difficult, but I also feel called to break the silence and tell my own truth regardless of the consequences,” said DeLong, 44. “When I entered (the ministry) I did not suspend my conscience. It’s incumbent on me not to perpetuate its unjust laws.” The chances of getting the rule reversed within the Methodist church are far from certain, however. Changes must be approved by delegates at the church’s General Conference, held every four years. Because a growing number of delegates come from Africa, the Philippines and other theologically conservative regions, voting patterns reflect strong resistance to change. Hundreds of pastors from areas including Illinois, Minnesota, New York and New England have signed statements in recent weeks asserting their willingness to defy the rule.

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Robert Gates says Shiite extremists, not al-Qaida terrorists, are to blame for most of the recent U.S. military deaths in Iraq, and they’re “clearly getting some fairly sophisticated and powerful weapons” from Iran. Gates tells CNN’s “State of the Union” that he’s worried about the Iranian influ- Gates ence in Iraq and he thinks Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is beginning to take these Shiite groups seriously. Gates says that the U.S. and Iraq are taking steps to try to limit the threat. A Shiite militia group claimed responsibility for an attack that killed five American troops on June 6. It was the single largest loss of life for American troops in two years. Also an al-Qaida-linked group in Iraq claimed responsibility Friday for the killing of a prominent Shiite official who was tasked with purging loyalists of deposed ruler Saddam Hussein and who was once implicated in a bombing that killed Americans. The Islamic State of Iraq said in a statement posted on its website that it killed Ali al-Lami, who was shot to death on May 26 in Baghdad. He headed a committee tasked with rooting out members of Saddam’s Baath Party and keeping them from certain government jobs. Last year, the committee barred hundreds of candidates from running in elections. Most were from the Sunni-backed Iraqiya bloc. The ban outraged Sunnis, who viewed it as an attempt to keep their candidates from gaining power. Al-Lami was arrested by U.S. and Iraqi forces in 2008 for suspected ties to Iranian-backed Shiite militias. At the time, U.S. officials accused him of being involved in a bombing that killed eight people, including two American soldiers and two State Department employees. He denied the charges. The U.S. later handed him over to Iraqi custody and he was released without trial. His arrest reinforced suspicions about the influence of Shiite power Iran within the Shiiteled governments that have held power in Iraq since Saddam’s ouster.

Noxen rattlesnake event raises funds

The Associated Press

NOXEN TWP. — Residents and visitors spent the weekend developing a relationship with rattlers. The rattlesnake roundup in Noxen Township has been held for almost four decades, and the local fire company uses it not only as the year’s biggest fundraiser but also as an opportunity to teach people about snakes. Becky Buenzli of Nazareth went on the snake roundup with some friends and with some help managed to catch one and wrestle it into a bin. “The adrenaline rush of just seeing a snake just right there in your face was crazy,” she said. “It

Kevin Zaledonas of WilkesBarre brought his kids to see the snakes but was content to view them from afar. “It’s hard to believe there are people actually standing in there with them,” he said. “I think a lot of people are just afraid of them, so they get to stand behind this fence and just be in awe.” For those not interested in getting even that close, the weekend also included a carnival and asso-

ciated activities such as food concessions, flea market and softball tournament. But it’s the snakes that keep people coming back year after year, and while it’s a boon to the volunteer fire company to raise money for training and new equipment, officials say they also use it to raise awareness about the animals. “The Timber rattlesnakes are definitely losing their habitat and population just due to the urban sprawl and loss of habitat,” fire company Chief Lew Hacklinig said. “So if we can educate the people where they respect the snake and stay away from it, we serve two purposes: help the community and help the snakes.”

portant to promoting strong neighborhoods and improving the quality of life in the city for children as well as families.” The city CEO and YMCA will be holding a formal kick-off event Wednesday, at 5:30 p.m. at the newest city playground in Iron Triangle for parents and children to see a preview of what the program will offer this summer.

vate entity and the township had no power of eminent domain. Charter school Chief Executive Officer Jim Smith, who is also a Bear Creek Township supervisor, said the new building and proposed recreation fields address a number of problems within the school. “There’s no indoor gym,” Smith said. “If it rains or snows, there’s no gym unless it’s sunny and warm outside.” Smith said there is no place at the current school for the entire student body to assemble, and the school must rent larger spaces to hold school functions. It rented a space at King’s College on Tuesday night to celebrate the eighth-grade graduation. “The new school would provide efficient space and tie into the environmental education thought process,” Smith said. The original Oliver School, Smith said, was not built to accommodate modern technology or the amount of children who attend classes and squeeze through small hallways. The plans for the site include a larger school with more amenities for students, including baseball and soccer fields, a gym, a children’s library and playgrounds that would be open to the public when not in use by the school.

Meeting rooms, classrooms and other facilities would be available to community groups. A portion of the existing school would be removed, but the four first-floor classrooms and lower level area that made up the original Oliver School would remain and be available for public use, which could include a day care center with before and after school care, according to The Times Leader archives. The school is expected to fund the estimated $12 million to $15 million construction project without cost to township taxpayers. A construction date is unknown because of the court proceedings. Located on Route 115, the school is the first and only free public charter school in Luzerne County, according to the school’s website. Since opening in 2004 with 98 students, the school currently has 423 pupils enrolled. Van Jura wrote that, during hearings in 2009, he found the testimony Smith credible, in that Smith testified one of the initial reasons for the creation of the school was to benefit the community in a number of ways, including an educational scholarship; that the property was always used for community purpose even before the potential expanding project and that the school has a Bear Creek Foundation, which hosts community events. Smith said the refurbishing of soccer and baseball fields belonging to Bear Creek Town-

Smith said the building of new fields near the school will be beneficial to both the township and school because the township needs more fields because of the amount of teams that are scheduled to play each week, and because students must travel, and the school must spend money for buses, if students play games at other fields. The new project has no relation to the recent purchase of St. Christopher Church in Bear Creek Township, Smith said. The Bear Creek Foundation Inc., which is linked to the charter school, purchased the church for $148,000 in December. The building will be called the St. Christopher Community Center, Smith has said.

Bygone, a black-and-white charcoal pencil drawing, depicts a still-life of toys from a not-sodistant past – a Gumby doll, a

kazoo and a wooden top among them – in near photo-realistic detail. Particularly impressive is the glass coke bottle at the center of the image. The translucence Wood captures in the bottle is even more astounding given that the image was his first attempt at a truly realistic style. Wood completed the drawing under the direction of his private art teacher, Joel Carson Jones,


with whom he has studied for the past year. “He wanted something complex, to see what I could actually accomplish,” Wood said. About 210 hours of work later, he had Jones impressed. “It usually takes people considerably longer to really grasp that control over the media,” Jones, of Plymouth, said. “So I consider myself just as fortunate to have him as a student as he is to have me as an instructor.” “He’s extremely disciplined, driven and dedicated to his artwork,” he added. “I believe he has the strength to succeed in whatever direction he chooses to go with it.” Wood is already taking steps towards becoming a professional artist. He is one of the youngest members of the Wyoming Valley Art League, and has had 50 signed prints of Bygone made; he has sold 13 so far. But that doesn’t mean he’ll stop making drawings for his friends, school or anyone who may be interested. “It’s what I’m going to do,” he said. “So the more you give me, the more practice I get.” Zachary Wood lives in Edwardsville with his father Mark and mother Diane.

China/Africa partnership a model of cooperation


.S. SECRETARY of State Hillary Clinton warned Africa that China is embarking on “new colonialism” by extracting the continent’s natural resources to enrich its development interests, and she held up the United States as an alternative. A large part of Africa used to be under the rule of Western powers, and the African people suffered during this colonialism. History shows that most African nations gained independence by fighting against Western colonialism in the latter half of last century. China has never colonized any nation in Africa. On the contrary, it is well known to African people and the world that China has helped Africa build many schools, hospitals and other infrastructure. China also has been regularly reducing and canceling the debt of poor African countries and continues to provide preferential loans and credit.

It depends on the experiences and judgment of the related African governments and peoples whether Clinton’s statement will drive a wedge between China and Africa. The relationship between China and Africa is a new strategic partnership, based on the principles of sincerity, friendship and mutual benefit on an equal footing, and has emerged as a role model for South-South cooperation, which has nothing to do with neocolonialism. Moreover, the fast-growing ties between China and Africa have made the whole international community pay attention to Africa’s development, which in turn is conducive to helping Africa win more international assistance.

Evil Gadhafi’s gotta go


HE QUEENSBERRY Rules of warfare died when warfare changed into terrorism and so, when Canada debates its continuing role in Libya in the House of Commons, it should adopt the stance of death to Moammar Gadhafi. If the goal in Libya is to free its citizens of this madman, then let’s take the madman out, and drop all the diplomatic niceties about whether this is the international equivalent of hitting below the belt. Target him, and eliminate him. Thus far, there have been more than 10,000 NATO sorties conducted over Libya – many of them by our CF-18s – but not one of those bombs has dropped on Gadhafi, who, despite promise of

sanctuary by Turkey, is hanging in like a bad rash. Let’s be honest. NATO painted itself into a corner by wholly agreeing to the United Nations’ security resolution that all targets being bombed must be linked to attacks on the Libyan people by pro-Gadhafi forces. While we agree that there should be no ground war launched in Libya, we believe the U.N.’s mandate to continue the air assaults until “all attacks or threats of attacks” on civilians have ceased is shortsighted – particularly if Gadhafi’s head is the main target. Gadhafi is evil, and always will be evil. The sooner he is gone forever, the sooner Libya will begin to see a brighter future unfold. The Toronto Sun

Turning point in Turkey


HEY ARE BOTH secular states and neighbors, but there is a gulf between what is happening in Turkey and Syria. Recently, Turks went to the polls in the eighth democratic election since the military relinquished power in 1983. Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad continues to turn his tanks and helicopter gunships on Syrians seeking political liberalization. The contrast is between an open and a closed society, the

first producing exceptional economic growth and enhanced regional authority, the second condemning its members to stagnation and pariah status. Yet instability in the one impinges on the other, as the flight of Syrians across the Turkish border is demonstrating. The immediate foreign policy concern for Ankara now that the elections are over will be how to defuse this situation. The Telegraph, London

Lawmaker: Shared sacrifice should be made by ‘all’ AS THE budget clock ticks steadily to the June 30 deadline, millions of Pennsylvanians wait apprehensively on its final passage. The process began on March 8. A budget plan was presented by Gov. Tom Corbett to the members of the House and Senate. Gov. Corbett stated that in order to fix the economic downturn, the solution must be “all-embracing.” I believe most Pennsylvanians agree that they are willing to pay their fair share and equally feel the pain. The governor’s words offered some assurance that we will overcome our financial shortcomings by coming together, working harmoniously to improve our condition and once again providing hope for a brighter future for ourselves, our children and grandchildren. The governor outlined what needed to be done to balance our budget. He began by saying our public schools do important work, and as a part of that work, all school employees (administrators, teachers and support staff) must set the example by taking a pay freeze. He also requested all employees in the State System of Higher Education do the same. Gov. Corbett then directed his pay freeze, benefit reduction and pension modification plan to the state employees. He requested the same kinds of sacrifice from the state’s union employees. By this time, many of us believed he would then tell us that he expected the big corporations to freeze their increases as well, especially since most corporations have been sporting excellent profits. That’s correct; most corporations have held a strong profit margin during the worst recession our country faced since the crash of 1929. So, while the working class was tightening its belt and trying to find other means to maintain its fiscal stability, the big corpora-

n a must-have-yesterday environment filled with instant gratification, I pose this question: What’s the hurry? Life is like a bank account, with all of us given a balance of 24 hours daily. Whether young or old, strong or weak, rich or poor, it resets daily. Most important is what one does, or doesn’t, accomplish with those precious hours. Take the time to help someone in need. Why be agitated when stuck in traffic? Positive is the answer, but it appears a “down” person can affect a room full of people. Why can’t happiness be nearly as infectious? In summary, life’s too short to be small, but, sadly, I witness happiness, in some, as a shrinking asset. Frank Symbula Drums

Responsible driving takes back seat to distractions


his letter goes out to all the drivers who almost have hit me because they were on a cell phone and not paying attention. Recently, I was almost pushed into a wall by a female driver in Hanover Township. Here’s a news alert: There are gadgets


out there for your cell phones that do leave your hands free. Please don’t use the excuse of “they’re too expensive,” since the cell phone bills alone can be outrageous. This includes phone cards, depending on how often you use your phone. I’m not against cell phones, since I own one. What I’m doing is this: begging you to be more responsible with them. Think of it this way: Your car can turn into a weapon in the blink of an eye if you’re not careful. Like guns, cars – if an inconsiderate driver is behind the wheel – can kill. A warning: If you hit me because of using a cell phone, putting on makeup, drinking, etc., and I survive, I will prosecute you to the fullest extent the law will allow. Not for the money, but to teach you a few valuable lessons – to drive your vehicle with respect for others, and to use it responsibly and not to harm or murder others. Aggie Barberio Wilkes-Barre

Factors affect gas prices Costs projected to rise at the same rate of inflation, but variables could alter that.

Times Leader staff

While natural gas prices are projected to rise at about the same rate of inflation over the next decade, there are variables that could come into play, according to Bill Holland, the associate editor of Platts Gas Daily, a newsletter that covers the industry. According to the NYMEX nat-

we’re going to put about 450 people on the water.” The trips are a source of recreation for the masses, but what of the people who put in all the elbow grease to provide the fun? This year, three outfitters took part in the Sojourns: Susquehanna River Adventures in Kingston, Endless Mountain Outfitters in Sugar Run, and Susquehanna Kayak and Canoe Rental in Falls. Friday’s trip took kayakers from Falls to Nesbitt Park in Wilkes-Barre; Saturday, from Harding to the same destination; and Sunday, from Nesbitt Park to Hunlock Creek. The weekend is a non-stop flurry of activity for the outfit-

ters. “On Friday we move about 80 boats to put in place in Harding, do the paddle, reload the boats, clean them, take them back up to Harding on Saturday,” Dave Buck, operator of Endless Mountain Outfitters, said. “We do it all over again, then bring them to Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.” In addition to the boats, paddles and life vests need to be accounted for, as well as the many people who register for the events. “It’s a lot of logistics and a lot of organizing for the three days,” Buck said. “We’re responsible for about 115 people going out on the water on Saturday alone.” It’s also physically exhausting. “There’s a lot of physical work involved,” said Heidi Willis, of Susquehanna Kayak and Canoe Rental. “There could be water in the kayaks by the time people re-

ach shore, and things can get really heavy.” Cleaning is an issue. “We clean everything the best we can,” Buck said, “but it’s so hard because you know that the next day muddy feet are going to be in the boat all over again.” Yesterday, Willis lead 10 people on the Sojourn herself. “The outfitters like to put one safety person on the river for every 10 people,” Mayday said. Despite all the work, outfitters enjoy what they don’t even consider a job. “I don’t even think of it that way because it’s so enjoyable,” Willis said. “I love seeing bald eagles fly over, great blue herons, just the beauty of the river,” Buck said. “We provide people with a good time, with recreation and educational experiences, and it’s always so rewarding to see them enjoying it.”

boat racer on the back. During its first race, the Wilkes-Barre City team found its boat rocked by a wave made from another ship that was keeping an eye on the festivities, causing the dragon vessel to tip. Recovery was quick thanks to the rescue plan that was in place that involved two boats on the water and the training provided to teams the day before. Although the team members found themselves soaked, it didn’t deter them. Jeromy Griffiths walked up the bank of the river with the plastic dragon head that detached from his boat held high. “I am the dragon slayer,” he yelled, to cheers from the other teams. The energy was palpable throughout the course of the races, which lasted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The General Hospital team lined the west bank from start to finish, cheering on every team that rowed by clacking together wooden dowels, clad in orange tie-dye shirts and pirate hats. Diane Ljungquist was the team’s drummer, dressed in a full pirate costume. Halfway through the day, though, the

happens. With sales tax revenue slumping more than 30 percent in most states between 2007 and 2010, lawmakers across the country are grasping for ways to collect those unpaid taxes. Retailers and lawmakers in several states have proposed ways to solve the problem, some with more support than others. “The problem is that some out-of-state e-retailers openly flaunt the law, arguing that it doesn’t apply to them,” said Texas state Democratic Rep. Elliot Naishtat, who has offered a bill to require more Internet sellers to collect Texas sales tax. “It’s about potentially generating hundreds of millions of dollars for our state.” Texas cut $24 billion in state services to cover its revenue

panded customer base has also kept rates down. “If we don’t grow, the only other way to offset losses is to raise rates,” Swope noted. Westbrook said that last year about 10,000 customers joined UGI. Half of those were new construction, the other half were converts from other fuel sources. With plenty of concerns over the safety of the natural gas drilling process – known as hydraulic fracturing or fracking – the UGI officials said that from what they know and have seen, the process is safe if done the right way. When it came to the controversial extraction tax or any kind of fee on the gas drilling process, the UGI representatives urged caution. “We need to be careful here in Pennsylvania,” Westbrook said. He said the more the profit margin is impacted, the more drillers would question whether it’s worth their money and resources to be in a certain state. “This is a huge economic boon. We shouldn’t restrain it,” he added.

heat caused her to ditch the pants for colorful shorts. “The point is to distract the boat next to us,” she said. “Then maybe their rowing will just be really bad.” The General Hospital team walked away with one of three prizes of the day, for Best Team Spirit. Wilkes-Barre City’s dunk in the river paid off as they were recognized for determination and the team drummer, Patty Hughes, who was dressed as a geisha with a white-painted face, won the Best Dressed Drummer award.

“She applied her make-up three times today,” a spectator shouted, as Hughes accepted her award. The team to win was Pennsylvania American Water, which ended the day in a tight race with The Times Leader group, clocking in with best time at 44.10 seconds. “Well, we are water,” the utility’s Susan Turcmanovich said. “We have the advantage already.” The team also used rubber ducks as mascots and a major part of drummer Deb Ogin’s outfit.

shortfall. That included decisions not to fund the expected growth in the number of public school students and the expected growth in the caseload for Medicaid, the health care program for the poor and disabled. Internet retailers cite a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court decision involving catalog sales, Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, which ruled that states could require only companies that had a physical presence within the state to act as tax collector. To get around the ruling, some states are expanding what it means to be physically present. For example, an online retailer hiring a marketing firm or owning a subsidiary inside the state would qualify under definitions adopted in some states. In February, the Texas comptroller demanded that pay $269 million in back sales taxes because a subsidiary operated a warehouse near Dallas. Amazon is appealing the or-

der. Last year, New York enacted a law that said Internet retailers’ practice of paying commissions to marketing agents based within the state constituted a presence. Bills are pending in Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. Texas lawmakers passed such a measure, but Gov. Rick Perry vetoed it. Amazon, and other big Internet retailers cite the Quill decision as their primary defense against collecting sales taxes, but they also argue that collecting tax where a sales tax exists would be too hard and costly. Traditional retailers say the current structure creates an unfair playing field. Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, J.C. Penney, Sears and others have formed The Alliance for Main Street Fairness to push for tougher tax laws on Net retailers.

$221. Smith covers the remaining $279 in rent with his $964 monthly Social Security check, which he started receiving around the time he got approved for the county rental assistance program. Smith said he had to obtain a steady income stream to be eligible for the county program because officials want evidence that participants have the financial means to support themselves in their new apartments. To receive the rental assistance, program participants must agree to complete programs or undergo professional treatment addressing their disabilities and preparing them for independence. Smith said he welcomes visits from county officials and the program administrator -- the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) – to monitor his progress. He recently underwent surgery to correct circulatory problems in his leg that made it difficult for him to climb steps or walk even short distances. He said he has an enlarged heart muscle, is on blood pressure medication, has bone spurs on his feet, back problems and emphysema. Although he has his own place, Smith said he continues to spend time with homeless friends, urging them to participate in programs that will help them get off the streets. He has also agreed to volunteer for CEO, meeting with homeless people to educate them about assistance programs provided by the agency. “If I can help somebody out, I’m going to help them out,” Smith said. He is frustrated when his efforts fall on deaf ears. Some he talks with are “hooked” on drugs

ural gas futures strip, which projects prices out to 2021, natural gas will be trading at an average of $7 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) during that stretch, with a high of $9. It’s currently at $4.37. Among what Holland called the “wildcards” are how many old coal-fired power plants are converted to natural gas and what impact the higher demand has on the market. But even if that happens, Holland said, he doesn’t see rates rising too dra-

matically. “If that trend really gets under way, then there’s going to be more demand, which could slightly increase prices,” Holland said. Some conversions are guaranteed to take place in the next five years as U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mandates force some plants to close down to meet EPA regulations. He said liquefying natural gas for overseas markets could also play a role, but that’s not as imminent.

clear cut old forests, Westbrook said “We shouldn’t let those things happen again.” “Let’s do the best we can do to ensure that this exploration is done in an environmentally benign way as it can be done,” Westbrook added. “It’s good for Pennsylvania. It’s good for consumers.” Natural gas has historically come from the South and dispersed through pipelines northward to major markets that rely heavily on the resource such as Boston, New York and Philadelphia. But the Marcellus Shale is changing things. “Having natural gas in your backyard, next door, where most of the gas in the United States is consumed is a huge boon … it’s going to calm natural gas prices,” Westbrook said. Bill Holland, the associate editor of Platts Gas Daily, a newsletter that covers the industry, said natural gas from the Marcellus region has been so plentiful that it’s actually being “backhauled” through the pipelines into the South, primarily Louisiana and Florida. “(The Marcellus Shale) is the second biggest gas field in the world, and it’s sitting in a large gas-consuming region,” said Holland. By having natural gas in the news everyday – positive or negative stories – it’s still getting the message out to people that natural gas in plentiful. “Everyone knows it’s there. We’re not going to run out,” Swope said. That, in turn, “limits volatility” in the price for the commodity. Holland said that in the past,

with the majority of natural gas coming from the Gulf of Mexico, any weather event in the gulf would wreak havoc with prices. But with the supply in the northeast serving as an alternative, it “has dampened out the volatility that used to be seen.” There are 59,340 UGI Penn Natural Gas customers in Luzerne County, including the Back Mountain, Mountain Top, the West Side and greater Wilkes-Barre regions. Those customers recently saw an increase in rates. After two years of declining natural gas rates, the WilkesBarre-based company raised prices 3.6 percent on June 1. Even with the slight increase, Swope noted that prices will still be lower now than they were two years ago. The bill for a typical residential retail heating customer who uses about 89 ccf (hundred cubic feet) of natural gas per month increased $4.74 per month from $105.06 to $108.80 on June 1. By comparison, in June 2009, the residential customer using the same 89 ccf was paying $130.68 per month. The bill for a typical commercial retail customer using 26.2 Mcf (million cubic feet) per month increased from $256.05 per month to $265.96 on June 1. The bill for a typical industrial retail customer using 405 Mcf per month increased from $3,488.74 per month to $3,642.01 on June 1. Swope said the rate increase had little to do with the price of gas and more to do with upgrades to UGI lines and lower collection totals.

That’s probably the way they’re going to die, too,” Smith said. “If that’s what they want, you can’t force them into a program.” To be eligible for the program, participants must prove that they are “chronically homeless,” which the fed“I felt sub- eral government defines as standard. a disabled person who has eiPeople ther been conwould look tinuously at you fun- homeless for a year or more or ny even, has had at least and that four episodes homelesshurt me.” of ness in the past Michael Smith three years. about how it Smith said feels to be he became homeless homeless after he was laid off from his 12year full-time job at an area paper products plant. He was able to remain in an Edwardsville apartment building until his unemployment ran out more than two years ago. His landlord at the time was willing to let him stay there a month or two and catch up on the rent later, but he couldn’t guarantee he could repay. He said he was unable to seek a new job because he started becoming plagued with health problems. “Rather than cheat them out of any kind of money, I said I’ll just leave,” Smith said. He sought shelter through VISION, which provided nighttime lodging at area churches. He would spend his days wherever he could, frequently on Public Square and the Osterhout Free Library, trying to ignore the comments and looks of some passersby. “Sometimes I had to wear dirty clothes and shoes that weren’t right,” he said. “I felt sub-

No more sleeping with his wallet and identification in his pillowcase or worrying about strangers rummaging through his only belongings in a duffle bag stashed under his cot in the homeless shelter. “The first night I moved in, I slept on the floor. I was more than happy to sleep on the floor because I had my own place. I was so relieved, like a weight was lifted off my back,” he said. A hot shower may be taken anytime, and he doesn’t have to go to sleep at 10 p.m. and rise at 6 a.m. or earlier to comply with the shelter rules. The days of wandering through Wilkes-Barre in all kinds of weather with his crutches or cane are over. He can cook what he wants when he wants, though Smith said he may have to seek a parttime job to increase his food budget. His remaining retirement check must cover food, medical expenses, a phone bill and car insurance and maintenance. He said he purchased a vehicle to get to medical appointments and to travel to meetings with the homeless. Smith said he would like to eventually survive without the rental assistance. The program has funding to help 11 individuals for up to five years. He vows he will never be without a permanent home again. “Being homeless is terrible. It’s the worse thing imaginable, as low as you can go,” Smith said.

McIlroy’s victory a record breaker By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

BETHESDA, Md. — Rory McIlroy buried the memory of his Masters meltdown the same way he buried the competition at the U.S. Open, with a breathtaking performance filled with the promise of more majors to come. Four days of flawless golf at Congressional ended Sunday afternoon when McIlroy polished off a 2under 69 to shatter U.S. Open records that simply defy logic at the major known as the toughest test in golf. He finished at 16-under par. The last 10 U.S. Open champions combined were 14 under. The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland walked off the18th green and into the arms of his father, Gerry, who worked three jobs so his only son could pursue his passion. Not even he could have imagined a day

like this. “Happy Father’s Day,” McIlroy told him. Dad had a Northern Ireland flag draped over his green shirt. “Unbelievable,” he said. “With what’s happened over the last couple of months, and to come back and do this, it’s fantastic. After the Masters, he worked so hard. I really can’t put it into words. And on Father’s Day, it’s fantastic. You couldn’t beat it.” It was the second straight U.S. Open title for the tiny country of Northern Ireland, and defending champion Graeme McDowell walked

Clippers throw Yankees for loss

Columbus gets seven strong innings from starter to take three of four games. By DAVE ROSENGRANT

MOOSIC – The Columbus Clippers have the best record in the International League for a reason. In the four-game series at PNC Field, the reigning Governors’ Cup champions showed their offensive prowess in wins in the first two games. In Sunday’s finale against Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre, CLIPPERS the Clippers put on a pitching display led by starter David YANKEES Huff to defeat the Yankees 2-0 and take three of four from SWB. Huff (6-2) lasted seven innings, only giving up four hits with no walks and fanning four to pick up the victory and help the Clippers improve to 47-23 in the IL West. “I had good fastball command, working the ball in and out,” Huff said. “Attacked the zone and threw first-pitch strikes and that was huge.” Huff wasn’t only pitching well. He made a superb defensive play in the bottom of the sixth on a grounder down the first base line by Doug Bernier. The pitcher scooped the ball with his glove and shoveled to first baseman Shelley Duncan to get the close out. The Yankees only collected five hits, consisting of two each by Brandon Laird and Jordan Parraz and an infield single by Bernier. Laird and Parraz accounted for the only hits off Huff, while Bernier’s hit was in the eighth. Laird, the No. 5 hitter in the lineup, and Parraz, the sixth hitter, poked consecutive one-out singles in the fifth. But they were left on the bases when P.J. Pilittere and Luis Nunez each flied out to end the inning. The duo came through again in

Witnessing birth of greatness

THE LEAD WAS 10 following yet another birdie as Rory McIlroy walked off the fourth green and handed his Titleist to a tousle-haired teen watching from just beyond the ropes at Congressional. A nice souvenir for the kid, who may one day dream of having a future in golf. And appropriate that it was given to him by the kid who may be the future of golf. His romp in the park at the U.S. Open didn’t just make McIlroy a major champion for the first time at a younger age than the great Jack Nicklaus. It also announced the arrival of a player so talented and magnetic that golf may stop caring so much about Tiger Woods. The 37,000 people who lined the fairways and surrounded the greens on a steamy Sunday seemed to sense that. They cheered every shot, even though the little drama that remained evaporated when McIlroy birdied the first hole to let everyone know this was not the Masters and there would be no meltdown. A few youngsters even climbed trees to get a better look, straining to see the 22year-old turn their national championship into a rout eerily similar to the one turned in by another young phenom in 2000 — a performance no one thought could be repeated. The final round was nothing more than a victory lap for McIlroy, a chance to soak in the adulation and post some numbers that made the people who run the Open cringe. He began the day leading by eight shots, ended it winning by eight shots. He finished at 16under-par, smashing the mark of 12-under set by Woods in 2000 at Pebble Beach. If not for an 80 in the final round of the Masters, he would be halfway to the Grand Slam. And, if you want to know what kind of person he is, the first thing he did afterward was thank his mother and father for making it all possible. All of a sudden does it really matter if Woods is playing in the British Open?

WILKES-BARRE – WilkesBarre resident Con McCole has competed in competitive racing events for 30 years, but the hour and a half he spent racing with his daughter Sunday morning was a moment he will cherish for a long time. “It was an excellent Father’s Day present,” he said. “Lots of fun.” Con and Stephanie McCole ran together for the first time as a father-daughter relay team at the 2011 WilkesBarre Duathlon, a USA Triathlon sanctioned race. The proceeds from the event will benefit youth programs held at the Jewish Community Center and the WilkesBarre Family YMCA. The Father’s Day event, which included a three-mile run, a 16.9-mile bike ride and was capped off by another three-mile run, was memorable for both of the McColes. “I loved doing a team (relay) with him,” said Stephanie, 16, who ran both legs of

How good is he? ‘The best’ “This guy is the best I’ve ever seen, simple as that,” said Graeme McDowell, who won last year’s Open at Pebble Beach. “He’s great for golf. He’s a breath of fresh air for the game and perhaps we’re ready for golf’s next superstar and maybe Rory is it.” With Woods now damaged goods, golf is in desperate need of a new star and the youngster from Holywood, Northern Ireland, couldn’t be more perfect if he came from central casting in Hollywood, Calif. He’s a fresh face under a mop of hair, so disarmingly candid you wonder if he got the memo that athletes aren’t really supposed to say what they think. In the wake of his final round debacle at the Masters, he had to teach himself to play with a certain arrogance, mostly because off the course his personality is best suited for having a pint with his friends at the neighborhood pub. His game is even more enticing. McIlroy drives the ball so long and straight that his fellow pros stop to watch, his iron play is meticulous, and he’s now figuring out a way to get the ball in the hole with his putter on a more consistent basis.

SEATTLE — Jason Vargas tossed a three-hitter for his second shutout of the season, outdueling Philadelphia lefthander Cole Hamels to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 2-0 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

After a twoout walk to Carlos Ruiz in the fourth, he retired the next 15 straight batters until Ryan Howard’s two-out single in the ninth. Ben Francisco then flied out to end it. Angels 7, Mets 3

back across the bridge to the 18th green to embrace the new winner. “You’re a legend,” McDowell told him. Not many would dispute that now, not after a week like this. McIlroy finished at 268 to break the U.S. Open record by four shots. That record 12-under par by Tiger Woods at Pebble Beach? McIlroy matched it in the second round and kept right on rolling. “I couldn’t ask for much more, and I’m just so happy to be holding this trophy,” McIlroy said. “I know how good Tiger was in 2000 to win by 15 in Pebble. I was trying to go out there and emulate him in some way. I played great for four days, and I couldn’t be happier.” When he arrived for his press conference, he took a picture of the silver U.S. Open trophy on the table and posted it on Twitter with two references that said it all: Winning. Bounceback. “Going back to Augusta this year, I felt like that was a great opportunity to get my first major. It didn’t quite work out,” McIlroy said. “But to come back straightaway at the U.S. Open and win that is nice. You can always call yourself a major champion, and hopefully after this, I can call myself a multiple major champion.” Since the Masters began in 1934, McIlroy is the second youngest major champion next to Woods. His freckled-face bursting with joy when he tapped in for par, McIlroy won by eight shots over Jason Day, who closed with a 68

GREATNESS Continued from Page 1B

He’s on the verge of greatness now. But he only figures to get better. “My impression is that he hasn’t primed yet,” said Y.E. Yang, who played with McIlroy on the weekend. “There’s still a lot more for him to grow. I think he’s still growing, and it’s just scary to think about it.” Scarier still may be that McIlroy has Woods in his sights. At least he did on this day, fully aware of the history that came before. “I know how good Tiger was in

and moved to No. 9 in the world. It was the second straight runner-up in a major for Day, only this time he didn’t have a chance. No one did this week. McIlroy opened with a threeshot lead, stretched it to six shots after 36 holes and eight shots going into the final round. No one got any closer over the final 18 holes. Tributes poured in throughout the steamy afternoon outside the nation’s capital — first from the players he beat, then from Jack Nicklaus and ultimately from Woods. “What a performance from start to finish,” Woods said in a statement. “Enjoy the win. Well done.” Nicklaus invited McIlroy to lunch last year in Florida and talked to him about how to close out tournaments. He apparently wasn’t listening when he took a

four-shot lead into the final round of the Masters, only to implode on the back nine and shoot 80. “I didn’t think it was going to happen again, and it hasn’t,” Nicklaus said by telephone to NBC Sports. “I think this kid’s going to have a great career. I don’t think there’s any question about it. He’s got all the components. He’s got a lot of people rooting for him. He’s a nice kid. He’s got a pleasant personality. “He’s humble when he needs to be humble, and he’s confident when he needs to be confident.” And to think that only four days ago, this was being called the U.S. Wide Open with no clear favorite in the game. Woods has gone 18 months without winning and isn’t even playing now because of injuries to his left leg. The top two players in the world have yet to win a major. There appeared to be

2000 to win by 15 at Pebble,” he said. “I was trying to go out there today and emulate him in some way.” Consider that done. But also consider what McIlroy did for himself by bouncing back from bitter disappointment at Augusta National to win the kind of Open that golf historians will be talking about for generations. He called his father in Northern Ireland just 20 minutes after losing a four-shot lead in the final round of the Masters to tell him he was OK and that it was all part of golf. Then he told reporters for weeks that he had gotten over his failure and would bounce back. If we didn’t believe him then, we

do now. For the supremely talented, winning the first major championship is almost always as much about relief as it joy. Once the burden of expectations is lifted, the wins tend to come more easily. Expect them to come quickly for McIlroy. “After the Masters and after winning this, I think he’ll just go on, go in leaps and bounds,” his father, Gerry, said. “He should do well, you know, and he’s keen to do well. He’ll keep working, if I know Rory.” McIlroy himself believes they may come sooner than later. “I said after Augusta, there’s three more majors left, I’ll try and

no one who stood out in the game. McIlroy, who goes to No. 4 in the world, now stands above everyone going into the final two majors of the year. Just think: If he had avoided the collapse at Augusta National, he could be headed to Royal St. George’s for the British Open with the first two legs of the Grand Slam. “Nothing this kid does ever surprises me,” McDowell said. “He’s the best player I’ve ever seen. I didn’t have a chance to play with Tiger when he was in his real pomp, and this guy is the best I’ve ever seen. Simple as that. He’s great for golf. He’s a breath of fresh air for the game, and perhaps we’re ready for golf’s next superstar. “And maybe,” he said, “Rory is it.” Among the records he set in a U.S. Open unlike any other: •The 72-hole record at 268. •The 54-hole record at 199. •The 36-hole record at 131. •Most under par at any point at 17 under. •Quickest to reach double digits under par — 26 holes when he got to 10 under in the second round. McIlroy also tied Woods’ record for a six-shot lead at the halfway point, and he joined Lee Janzen in 1993 and Lee Trevino in 1968 as the only players to post all four rounds in the 60s. Some of that had to do with Congressional, which was softened by rain and cloud cover. The USGA did nothing to try to protect par, moving tees forward to tempt players to take on some risk. The result was a whopping 32 rounds under par on Sunday. The previous record of18 final rounds under par was at Baltusrol in 1993. go out and win one of them. I’ve done that,” he said. “There’s two more majors left. I’m going to try my best and go out and put myself in a great position to win them, also.” First, though, he had more immediate plans. With the Open trophy securely in his hands, there was some celebrating to do, and surely a beverage or two would be sipped from it before the night was through. Golf should raise a toast to its newest star, too. Because the future of the game is looking good. Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Mickelson finished like he started – all wet By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

BETHESDA, Md. — Phil Mickelson’s U.S. Open ended where it began, in the same body of water. On his last hole of the championship Sunday, Mickelson stood in a greenside bunker launched a rainbow that splashed on the fly, some 15 feet beyond the other side of the peninsula green. Even the adoring gallery that had cheered so loudly during his walk up the fairway couldn’t help but let out a collective giggle. After two unsuccessful drops on the steep lakeside slope, he had to place the ball and chip back toward the pin, where he made a 6-footer for double bogey to finish an even par round of 71 and a 7-over total of 291. “That bunker’s not an easy spot to be in today,” Mickelson said, “and I hit a poor shot on top of it.” The lake also received Mickelson’s opening shot in his first round on Thursday, when he started on the nearby par 3 10th and left his tee shot well

for her upcoming event in October – the Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii. “I had a good day,” said Obsitos. “I felt strong.” The Meyers graduate has spent the last five years preparing for the grueling Ironman competition, which features a 2.4-mile swim, a 112mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run. “I qualified last year in Ironman Florida,” she said. “To qualify and compete this October is amazing.” Obsitos, 24, will compete again in July at the Musselman Half-Iron Triathlon in Geneva, N.Y. The swim-bikerun event is only half the distance of the Ironman competition. While the task in October may seem daunting to some, Obsitos has yet to feel the case of the jitters. “I’m excited and I can’t wait for the experience. This has been a dream of mine for the last five years.”

U.S. OPEN NOTEBOOK short. He double bogeyed that hole as well. Mickelson’s 69 on Friday was his only round under par on a course receptive for U.S. Open scores lower than the norm. “I thought that the soft conditions obviously made it a little bit easier than everybody had hoped, but the setup was wonderful,” he said. “I just didn’t play how I’d hoped.” RAFA ON RORY: Tennis’ top-ranked man, Rafael Nadal, enjoys playing golf in his free time, and he kept tabs on Rory McIlroy’s record-breaking performance at the U.S. Open. Nadal said McIlroy owns “probably one of the nicest

swings in the world, if not the nicest. ... He deserves the title.” The two met last year in New York, and Nadal has been pulling for McIlroy ever since. “For sure, what he’s doing is really something unbelievable,” Nadal said Sunday at Wimbledon, where he will begin play Monday as the defending champion. “Seriously, I love watching Rory. ... I admire him a lot.”

trees, only to have the ball land on the edge of the right rough along the ninth fairway. At least he was back on the right hole. His third shot landed precariously on the front of the green and started rolling toward the deep ravine before coming mercifully to a stop. The pin was at the back of the green, but he putted within 6 feet and made it from there. All that work for a par.

WRONG HOLE, RIGHT RECOVERY: Gary Woodland is from Kansas, but he must have felt as if he’d landed in Oz after he hooked his tee shot at par-5 ninth hole Sunday at the U.S. Open. Woodland had to venture all the way to the edge of the No. 4 fairway to play his second shot. He lifted it over a bank

U.S tops Jamaica to move to semis

Second-half goals propel team to game against either Panama or El Salvador. AP PHOTOS

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Jermaine Jones and Clint Dempsey scored as the United States moved into the Gold Cup semifinals with a 2-0 win over Jamaica in the quarterfinals Sunday. Jones fired a shot from outside the penalty area and Jamaica defender Jermaine Taylor stuck out his foot, deflecting the ball past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts in the 49th minute. It was Jones’ first goal of the tournament. Taylor came out on the losing end of another exchange between the two nearly 20 minutes later. Jones beat the defense in the middle of Jamaica’s half and was about to break free for a 1on-1 chance when Taylor tackled him from behind, earning a red card in the 67th minute. With Jamaica down a man, Dempsey added the second goal with 10 minutes to play. Juan Agudelo’s cross found Dempsey alone on the left side of the goal. Ricketts came out to contest, and Dempsey avoided the tackle and put the ball in the empty net. Dempsey also scored in the group-stage opener against Canada. On Wednesday in Houston, the United States will face the Panama-El Salvador winner. Jamaica entered the game as the only team in the tournament to win all three of its group-stage games without conceding a goal, but the visitors failed to earn their first ever win against the U.S. Both teams had scoring chances in the first half, although neither team capitalized. Jamaica had its best opportunity early on, and it took an excellent save by goalkeeper Tim Howard to knock away Demar Phillips’ shot from the left side of the box in the fourth minute. The U.S. also suffered a blow early when striker Jozy Altidore left with a strained left hamstring and was replaced by Agudelo in the 12th minute. Jones seemed to be in position for a possible goal late in the opening half, when Rickett saved a shot by Agudelo and the rebound bounced straight to Jones, but he couldn’t control the ball. Midfielders Landon Donovan and Dempsey had not trained with the team in Washington before the match. Each were excused to attend their sisters’ weddings — Dempsey in Texas and Donovan in California. Each of the players arrived in Washington early Sunday morning. Dempsey was in the starting lineup, but Donovan was a substitute. It was the first U.S. game Donovan began on the bench since June 9, 2007. Donovan entered in the 65th minute to a huge cheer from the crowd, replacing Alejandro Bedoya. To celebrate his Father’s Day goal, Jones gave a salute, honoring his soldier father.

Feller honored for saving game Late Hall of Famer kept contest going after Major League Baseball pulled out.

By JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Anne Feller didn’t address the crowd at the Hall of Fame Classic. Her presence alone was enough. Seven months after her husband died at 92, Bob Feller was honored Sunday by the organizers of a game the Cleveland Indians great wholeheartedly embraced. The game’s most valuable player was given the inaugural Bob Feller Player of the Game Award. “It’s an honor. It’s wonderful for them to remember him. He would have been so grateful,” said Anne Feller, who kissed Dick Williams as she made her way to the mound to a standing ovation and placed a baseball on the rubber before the national anthem. “It’s just wonderful for them to ask me to come and I’m proud to be here to represent Bob, who loved this game. He loved being here. He always loved coming to Cooperstown. He was just so proud of being in the Hall of Fame.” When Major League Baseball stopped participating in the annual Hall of Fame Game at Doubleday Field three years ago, this one-stoplight village found a hero in Feller, who was used to playing that role. Feller, who was enshrined in Cooperstown in 1962, didn’t want to see a tradition die after nearly seven decades. “Bob loved everything to do with Cooperstown,” Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson said. “He was the first to enlist in

the seventh. This time with two outs, Laird singled and Parraz doubled for the only extra-base hit in the game for the Yankees. But again, they were stranded when Pilittere flied out. “I think more or less I was just trying to execute a pitch and I didn’t,” Huff said about the four hits he gave up. “One hit was a hanging curveball and another was on a changeup that was up. I was just lucky enough that they didn’t hit it over the fence.” Yankee starter Carlos Silva, who came off the disabled list for the start, lasted 42⁄3 innings and gave up two runs on five hits while striking out five. A home run by former SWB Yankee Chad Huffman in the second gave Columbus a 1-0 lead. Luke Carlin connected for a solo shot in the fifth off Silva to put the Clippers ahead 2-0. Duncan, also a former SWB Yankee, was 0-for-4 Sunday and went 3-for-14 with four RBI in the series. He also received a loud ovation from the fans each time he came to bat. “I was lucky to have that (ovation) for three years when I was here,” Duncan said. “They’re good people in this area. It feels like home. A little eerie being a visitor, but it was good.” Notes: To make room for Silva on the SWB roster, the team placed Ryan Pope on the sevenday disabled list. … Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre’s bullpen extended

AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL Former Yankee pitcher Goose Gossage signs autographs at the Hall of Fame Classic in Cooperstown, N.Y., Sunday.

World War II. He was the first to enlist for the Hall of Fame Classic three years ago. He meant a great deal to the game and he stood for everything the Hall of Fame is all about — character, integrity, sportsmanship and great interaction with the fans.” Before the Knucksies and Wizards took the field, a moment of silence was observed for four Hall of Famers who died in the past year: Feller, Harmon Killebrew, Duke Snider, Sparky Anderson. Killebrew and Feller were captains at last year’s Classic. “You have the highest respect

for Harmon Killebrew. The highest respect. It’s a bittersweet day,” said Rich “Goose” Gossage, who started for the Wizards. “Human beings just don’t come any better than Harmon. To lose him and Bob is very, very sad.” “I hate to see the passing of anyone, but a Hall of Famer who touched so many lives over the years and meant so much to the Hall of Fame itself will be certainly remembered,” Andre Dawson said, referring to Feller. “That’s what makes this weekend that much more special.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Through it all, Edwin Rodriguez kept his sense of humor. The Florida Marlins’ manager talked about ghost stories and the team’s hotel. He joked about moving the calendar ahead to July in hopes of escaping an awful June. As it turns out, that long losing streak hurt more than he showed. Rodriguez, the first Puerto Rican-born manager in major league history, unexpectedly resigned Sunday after less than one year on the job. Bench coach Brandon Hyde managed the last-place Marlins as they dropped their 10th straight game, 2-1 to the Tampa Bay Rays. But the club will begin a search for an interim manager and potential candidates include 80-year-old Jack McKeon, the special assistant to the owner who led Florida to a World Series title in 2003. Rodriguez said it was difficult to leave, given the “positive way the organization is moving, a

I wish this organization and players nothing but success in their futures.”

Rodriguez became interim manager June 23 of last year after Fredi Gonzalez was fired. He was given the job permanently five days later. Florida went 46-46 under Rodriguez, who opened the 2010 season as the Marlins’ Triple-A manager in New Orleans. The Marlins fell to 1-18 in June with Sunday’s loss to the Rays.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Michael Phelps emerged from the water with an unfamiliar look of disappointment splashed across his face. A glance at the scoreboard only made things worse. Even in tuneup races, losing streaks for Phelps are rare. The planet’s most recognized swimmer lost for the third straight time in one of his signature events Sunday night, finishing a tenth of a second behind Australia’s Nicholas D’Arcy in the 200-meter butterfly at the Santa Clara International Grand Prix. “I would have liked to get the win

Switzerland’s Roger Federer walks to a practice court at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon Sunday.

Nadal still feels very far away UP NEXT

The 25-year-old Spaniard needs six more Grand Slam titles to catch Federer.

FIRST ROUND 7 a.m. today, ESPN2 — The Championships at Wimbledon, England


WIMBLEDON, England — Having won four of the past five Grand Slam tournaments and10 in all, Rafael Nadal was asked on the eve of Wimbledon about quickly closing in on Roger Federer’s record of 16. Nadal cut in to clarify. “Very close? No. I am very far,” Nadal said Sunday. “Six is a lot.” Perhaps. Still, the 25-year-old Spaniard is looking more and more like someone who will be able to challenge, if not surpass, whatever Federer’s final tally is. As long as a couple of other guys don’t get in the way, that is. For years, Federer and Nadal were the men to beat at major tournaments. These days, they’re joined at what is a competitive and compelling top of the game by a pair of 24-yearolds, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. That Big Four filled out the semifinals at the French Open two weeks ago, and most everyone expects them to be the final four standing in a fortnight’s time at Wimbledon, where play begins today with Nadal as the defending champion. “That’s maybe something that’s a bit different than maybe in the past, where maybe one of the top four guys wouldn’t feel so comfortable on grass,” said Federer, a six-time winner at Wimbledon. “But this year, it seems like all of us are, which is a good thing.” Nadal quickly earned the sobriquet “King of Clay” for his excellence on that surface, particularly at Roland Garros, where he beat Federer on June 5 for a

sixth championship there. Now Nadal seeks a third title on the grass of the All England Club, where he hasn’t lost to anyone other than Federer since 2005. “I love to play on grass. I love to play in this fabulous place,” the top-seeded Nadal said. “In the beginning of my career, everybody talked a lot that with my style of game, (it’s) going to be always very difficult to play very well here. But I worked a lot and I put all my best in every practice.” As the returning men’s champion, Nadal will play the first match on Centre Court on Day 1, against Michael Russell of the United States. That’s an honor that’s often been accorded Federer, but he lost in the quarterfinals a year ago, is seeded third this year, and must wait until Tuesday to get started against Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan. The second-seeded Djokovic, whose 43-match winning streak ended with a loss to Federer in Paris, also is scheduled to begin Tuesday, while No. 4 Murray is slated to play Daniel GimenoTraver of Spain on Centre Court today. The forecast calls for — surprise! — rain, but at the very least, matches in the main stadium shouldn’t be affected because of the retractable roof in use since 2009. Other men on today’s slate include 2003 U.S. Open champion and three-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy Roddick, 2010 finalist Tomas Berdych and 10thseeded Mardy Fish.

BROOKLYN, Mich. — Two days after facing questions about unauthorized auto parts and possible penalties, Denny Hamlin enjoyed a happier kind of scrutiny. Hamlin raced to his first NASCAR Sprint Cup victory over the year, holding off Matt Kenseth on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway. The drivers appeared headed for a fuel-mileage finish, then a late caution enabled them to make pit stops before a frantic closing five-lap sprint. “Over these last six weeks, I can honestly say we’ve had a chance to win each and every race,” Hamlin said. “For me, if I go about eight weeks without winning, I’m wondering what the heck’s going on.” Kenseth was the only driver with a shot to catch Hamlin in the final moments. Kenseth tried to go both above and below the leader, but was unable to pass Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota. Hamlin won by 0.281 seconds for his second straight victory in the June race at the track. Kyle Busch was third, giving Joe Gibbs Racing two of the top three spots after the team was told to change oil pans before Friday’s practice. NASCAR said oil pans from cars driven by Hamlin, Busch and Joey Logano were not submitted for approval before opening day inspection. The team could face additional penalties this week, but Hamlin and Busch hardly seemed distracted. “It speaks volumes to the expe-

rience and resilience of this 11 car that you can start the week off with a down note and put that behind you and make sure that it doesn’t affect what’s getting ready to happen,” said Mike Ford, Hamlin’s crew chief. “This team usually comes out swinging when its back’s against the ropes. Sometimes we connect and sometimes we get dotted in the eye.” Team president J.D. Gibbs said Friday’s situation was a good lesson. “We want to be here with integrity,” Gibbs said. “We’ve made mistakes in the past as a team, and I’m sure we’ll make mistakes in the future. If we can’t conduct ourselves in the right way, there’s no use in us doing this.”

Hamlin won eight times last year and contended for the series title, but was unable to match Jimmie Johnson. Hamlin was winless this season, although he led early last weekend at Pocono Raceway before running into tire problems. He entered this race 12th in the points standings but was still confident heading into the summer months. The victory moved him up to ninth. “Realistically, you know if the whole world collapses and ends, you’re still one win away from getting a Chase spot, pretty much,” Hamlin said. “We know two wins pretty much puts you in. From here on out, we know we’re one win away.” Busch finished the race with-

out incident after he and Kevin Harvick came off probation. They were fined and disciplined for a run-in last month. Harvick finished 14th Sunday. Busch drove despite chest pain and took the lead about midway through the 400-mile, 200-lap race. “It was just hard to breathe. I had to take real short breaths,” he said. “Felt like I was running a 400-mile marathon, which essentially I was. But I felt like I was running on my feet instead of in a race car.” Carl Edwards moved in front coming out of a caution that ended at lap 163, and it appeared the race would come down to who had enough fuel. The final caution, however, changed all that.


Castroneves’ bad luck gives Franchitti the win The Associated Press

WEST ALLIS, Wis. — Dario Franchitti took over the lead when Helio Castroneves had a tire problem, then held on to win the IndyCar Series race at the Milwaukee Mile on Sunday. It was the third victory of the season for Franchitti, who stayed out of trouble as two fellow contenders fell by the wayside. Tony Kanaan crashed with 31 laps to go, and Castroneves gave up the lead when he had to make a late extra pit stop to change a tire that was going flat. Graham Rahal was second, followed by Oriol Servia, Will Power and Danica Patrick. Castroneves finished ninth. It was a return to racing for the Milwaukee Mile, a historic track that dates to 1903 but didn’t host major events last year because of previous promoters’ financial problems. IndyCar was back on the schedule this year but fan response was tepid at best, with the grandstands perhaps onethird full at the green flag. That

was despite increased efforts by the new event promoter, including a two-for-one ticket deal. NASCAR still hasn’t returned to the Mile; the Nationwide Series instead will race next weekend on the road course at Road America, about an hour north of Milwaukee. Franchitti dominated the early stages of the race, but Kanaan and Castroneves eventual-

ly emerged as contenders. Castroneves took the lead after a round of pit stops on lap 167, but began to slow down gradually when his left-rear tire began going flat. Castroneves stayed on the track, hoping for a caution flag. He got it when Kanaan spun out and crashed with 31 laps to go — a boost for Castroneves, who could make a pit stop under

caution. But Franchitti regained the lead when Castroneves pitted and fell back to 10th. Franchitti then surged away on the restart with 20 laps to go and wasn’t challenged the rest of the way. It turned out to be a decent day for Power, who came into the race with a 21-point lead over Franchitti but started 17th on Sunday after a bad run in qualifying while Franchitti won the pole. A good pit stop near the end helped Power pull off a top-five finish. It was a rough weekend for Simona De Silvestro, who was hospitalized Saturday night after crashing in qualifying Saturday. IndyCar officials cleared De Silvestro to race Sunday morning, after her crew worked into the early morning hours to repair her car. But she didn’t last long once the green flag fell, pulling into the pits and getting out of the car just a few laps into the race.


Barber says career failures led to bout with depression The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tiki Barber says failures off the field after his retirement from football in 2006 led to a yearlong bout with depression. The 36-year-old Barber, the New York Giants’ career leading rusher, acknowledged in an HBO report to be aired Tuesday that he now needs football more than it needs him. Barber has spent the past four months working out in an attempt to make a comeback, although his chances rest on the league and its players reaching a new collective bargaining agreement.

Barber said football represents a necessary anchor in a life turned upside down by the depressive aftermath of scandalous divorce and disintegration of his television career. The report recounts the downward spiral Barber’s life took shortly after his retirement. What started as a promising career as an NBC football analyst ended in his firing. His marriage to his college sweetheart collapsed. And his relationship with a 23year-old NBC intern which continues today soiled a well-honed, family man image.

The weather is looking pretty nice today. A good deal of morning sunshine followed by increasing clouds later in the day. The temperature will warm into the lower 80s this afternoon, and we may have a stray shower. But I expect most locations to remain dry. An area of low pressure will move along Southern Pa. and bring some rain showers to Central and Southern Pa., but again, I think Eastern Pa. should remain dry. There’s a better chance of scattered rain showers tomorrow. Tonight will be partly cloudy and cool as the temperature drops into the 50s. - Kurt Aaron

By Ralph Burns; “Former” acid reflux sufferer

Here’s My Story: I've Suffered With Acid Reflux for Almost 40-Years Now. Unless you experience it; you can’t imagine how horrible it is. Every time I ate spicy food I would get what I called "ROT GUT". Like something was rotting in my stomach. But now I can eat anything… No matter how spicy. Even if I never could before. Let me explain… For the better part of my life; I purposely avoided a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I’d experience a burning sensation through my esophagus— like somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that, those disgusting "mini-throw ups" and I was in "indigestion hell".

"I was beside myself. What was I gonna do? Keep taking the pills, or suffer with problems that could ultimately be my demise”. Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Sometimes, I felt like I was dying. The pain was unbearable and nothing could make it stop. But then my wife, who occasionally suffered with the same problem; gave me one of her prescription acid blockers. It was a miracle. I felt like I could live again. Because before that, I was just miserable. I wanted to kill myself. But thankfully, it worked, and worked well. I felt great, until about one year ago; when I read an FDA warning that scared the heck out of me. It went something like this… FDA WARNING! Using proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on a long term basis, increases your risk of hip, bone and spinal fractures. That's a particular concern to me, since many acid blockers are PPI's. I've gone through two back surgeries and bilateral hip replacements. I had to ask myself, could PPI's have been responsible for my medical woes? After all…

“The Recommended treatment for Prilosec OTC®, Prevacid®24HR and all other PPI's is only 14-days— I TOOK THEM FOR 14-YEARS!”

Holy Trinity Church in Swoyersville holds May crowning A May crowning ceremony was conducted at Holy Trinity Church in Swoyersville. Taylor Urban, daughter of John and Michelle Urban of Dallas, was the May Queen. The crown bearer was Carmeryn Forgash and pages were Collin Dougherty and Patrick DelBalso. Members of the court and the First Communion class, kneeling, are Noah Zim and Aiden Shymanski. First row: Jacob Katulka, Jake Wienckoski, Joshua Mayerski, Dougherty, DelBalso, Forgash and Ameilia Favata. Second row: the Rev. Edward P. Lyman, senior priest, JoAnn Guido, coordinator, Jocelyn Polney, Alexa Rash, Urban, Samantha Savage, Jessica Savage, Olivia Katulka, Margaret Semanek, director of religious education, and Geraldine Margallis, coordinator.

I was “between a rock and a hard place”. Stop using the PPIs and I'm a “dead man in the water”. It would be unbearable. I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I’d have to go on a water diet. But that FDA warning was scary. I knew I had to stop or else risk developing spinal stenosis. My mother

63-year old Ralph Burns enjoying a spicy-hot portion of Lobster Fra Diavolo. Just 15-Minutes after taking AloeCure®

had that. And I watched her die a horrible death. Her spine just fractured. It was the worst death. She didn't deserve that. And neither do I.

“Every time I ate something that didn't agree with me… I’d get what I called ‘Rot Gut’ — like my stomach was rotting out!” I had to quit. So I stopped taking PPI's for a day or so. But my indigestion was worse than ever. I would rather take the chance of a spinal fracture than to live like that again. I tried everything. Even started using home remedies like Apple cider vinegar. But it just felt like I was pouring even more acid down my throat. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said "why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said "aloe drink"? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!” The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure®. I was skeptical, but I was desperate! So instead of being an ingrate I decided to try it. I was shocked! AloeCure®. Tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the PPI's altogether and replaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure®. Then something remarkable happened… NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion. And here’s the best part. The next day we had Italian food — my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40-years I didn't get indigestion without relying on prescription or OTC pills and tablets. Finally, I just didn’t need them anymore! I was so thrilled; I wrote the AloeCure® company to tell them how amazing their product is. They thanked me, and asked me to tell my story... the story that changed my life. I said “Sure, but only if you send me a hefty supply of AloeCure®. I just can't live without it. But don't believe me. You have to try this stuff for yourself. I recommend AloeCure® to anyone who suffers with the same problem I did. It gives you immediate relief. You'll be grateful you did. I sure am. It's the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time. TRY IT 100% RISK-FREE! The makers of AloeCure® have agreed to send you up to 6 FREE bottles PLUS 2 free bonus gifts with every order— they’re yours to keep no matter what. That’s enough AloeCure® for 30days of powerful digestive relief, absolutely free! But hurry! This is a special introductory offer, reserved for our readers only.

Family food fight erupts over meal program for homebound seniors Dear Abby: Because my 90-year-old mother is homebound, she qualifies for a meal program through a senior charity service. The program is free of charge for those in need. She didn’t like some of the meals, so she asked me to give them to my father-in-law, “Louis.” Louis is 88. He still drives and is well-off, so he doesn’t qualify for the program, but he accepted the meals that were offered. My mother has now decided she can no longer eat any of these meals, so I told her we should discontinue the program. When I mentioned it to my wife,

DEAR ABBY ADVICE she became very upset with me, saying her father appreciated those meals. I reminded her that her father is able to drive himself to the supermarket and buy frozen dinners similar to what is being provided through the service. My wife is so angry she now says she will never again share any leftovers with my mother. It’s an understatement to say this situation has created a major fight between us. Is my wife correct in being upset about my discontinuing the meal service? — Charity Begins at Home


Dear Charity: It wasn’t wrong to offer the meals that had already been delivered to your mother to your father-in-law after she rejected them. They probably could not have been redistributed to other seniors by the food program at that point. But to continue your mother’s food service while redirecting them to someone who is not in need is dishonest. It’s stealing necessary resources from people who truly need them. Because your wife is upset, she should contact the agency that provides the meals, or another agency that serves seniors, and see if her father qualifies. But she shouldn’t punish you for refusing to go along with a deception.


Dear Abby: Twice, while attending social funtions, my wife and I met couples for the first time. On each of these occasions as we were saying goodbye, the husbands said to me, “Your wife is gorgeous.” They said it in front of their wives, which surprised me. The first time it happened, I didn’t know what to say. The second time, I replied, “So is yours,” even though the women weren’t all that attractive. I’m wondering if their comments were appropriate, especially because they were made in the presence of their wives. I wasn’t offended, just caught off-guard and felt uncomfortable for their wives. I’d appreciate your comments. — Married to a Knockout

Dear Married To A Knockout: Not only do you have a gorgeous wife, but your wife is blessed with a sensitive husband. The comments those individuals made strike me as insensitive to the feelings of their wives because it invited a comparison which could have made the women feel uncomfortable. I think you handled both situations gallantly.

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). You’ll be tempted to ask others to solve a problem; however, it really is best tackled by you. Get scientific. Who needs tech support? You’ll resolve the issue in less time and for free. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Through the ages, many different body types have been heralded as icons of beauty. Your motivation will be greatest when you love and enjoy the shape and size you are. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can think of something positive to say about everyone you know and will benefit from doing so, even if you’re only telling yourself. It’s a way of generating good energy. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have the uncanny ability to work on 10 things at once. In fact, you need that many tasks going at once to keep from getting too bored. And every loop you open will be closed again by the end of the day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like to see new places, though getting there is not always as much fun. Take measures to make your inbetween time fun and relaxing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will help you to know another language. Tune in to the specific vernacular of a certain culture or the intricate and subtle dance of body language, and suddenly your horizons will expand. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you fail to plan for an opportunity, you will miss it. You need a teacher to help you know what to look for. The best mentor is someone you don’t have to pay.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a right to ask questions. Anyone who makes you feel otherwise is trying to sell you something that he or she doesn’t fully understand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have a friend who seems to get more than his or her fair share of life’s perks. This person may share with you, but it would be better to learn the methods that are so effective for him or her. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Make compromises, but make them for the right reason — for instance, because the other idea is better than the one you originally had. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your personality is as delightful as it is versatile. You correctly sense that one mode of operating does not really fit all. You’ll be shifting into different gears throughout the day to fit the mood of each new situation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll meet someone new who is in a position to help you get where you want to go — that is, if you really know where you want to go. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 20). You relate better to others because you relate better to yourself. You treat yourself with compassion and nurture your talents. July brings money from a new source. You’ll invest in someone’s future in August. Family celebrates you in December. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 47, 37, 30 and 8.
