Federer falls

Six-time champion Roger Federer was upset in the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the second straight year Wednesday, squandering a two-set lead for the first time at a Grand Slam tournament and losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. Federer barely looked challenged while winning the first two sets against the 12th-seeded Frenchman. But the Swiss star was broken one time in each of the last three sets.

WILKES-BARRE – Double-homicide suspect Hugo Selenski wants to go without assistance from defense lawyers, or at least his lead counsel, John Pike. In a four-page handwritten motion filed Wednesday in Luzerne County Court, Selenski, 37, said there are “differences of opinion between counsel” and himself since he was charged in May 2006 with the slayings of Tammy Lynn Fassett and Michael Jason Kerkowski. “From the 2006 arrest date to the present, this court has been made aware of a myriad amount of ideological and procedure differences between lead counsel (Pike) and defendant on how to proceed both at its pre-trial stage and trial stage,” Selenski wrote.

Hugo Selenski has filed a court motion saying he does not agree with the strategy followed by his lead counsel.

Selenski noted he did not agree to the latest delay of his capital murder trial when Pike requested a continuance citing the unavailability of a mitigation specialist. Jury selection was scheduled to start this past Monday with the trial in July. “Noting the fact that counsel in this See SELENSKI, Page 4A

The final $32.5 million budget was hammered out after several “11th hour” negotiating sessions with the Crestwood Education Association, the union representing the district’s teachers, who agreed to a one-year pay freeze.

WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County Correctional Facility Warden Joseph Piazza on Wednesday said the county has saved more than $900,000 by treating offenders rather than in-

carcerating them. Piazza, speaking to about 75 people at the first transition/ graduation ceremony of the county’s Day Reporting Center, said completing the program at Behavioral Intervention Inc. on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard is “harder than doing time in the county prison.” “The program reduces prison costs, reduces the rate of recidivism and enhances the safety in our community,” he said. “Con-

gratulations to all of you.” Only four of the 11 members of the first graduating class were in attendance; the other seven had prior commitments, officials said. But for the graduates and their families, it was a big day. It marked the end of their time, and now, as Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury said, the future is theirs. See GRADUATES, Page 4A

New trail is in planning stage Pa. Environmental Council looks into making the Harvey’s Creek Trail/Greenway a reality. By GERI GIBBONS Times Leader Correspondent

LEHMAN TWP. -- The Pennsylvania Environmental Council, a statewide nonprofit group, met Wednesday at Penn State WilkesBarre to ascertain the feasibility of and to develop a plan for a possible Harvey’s Creek Trail/ Greenway. The study would include areas in Dallas, Jackson, Kingston, Lake, Lehman and Plymouth townships, and Dallas and Harveys Lake boroughs. Janet Sweeney, project manager of the council, indicated this initial public meeting would be followed by several steering committee meetings that would further develop and define the plan for the proposed trail. She said a grant had been re-

ceived from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and matched by the Luzerne County Office of Community Development. These grants, along with a grant from the Edith Reynolds Trust, will be used to fund the planning of the project. A community survey had been developed and distributed to members of the community, and more than 300 had been returned and evaluated, Sweeney said. She emphasized that public support for the project was key. “These trails are free to the public,” said Sweeney, “and at the same time they increase property values and quality of life for those areas surrounding them.” George White, of White Environmental Services, who has been retained in regard to the planning of the project, said he was confident the project could be completed successfully and would be utilized by the public. “Lots of opportunities, lots of

problems, but a great starting point,” White said about the project. “Different parts of the trail would have different levels of difficulty,” he said, “but signage would be used so that residents could utilize parts of the trail that best suit their needs.” White said the new trail would connect to existing trails, such as the Susquehanna Warrior Trail and the Back Mountain Trail, to enrich the experience of area hikers. He presented maps that showed that entire areas of the state are anticipated to be connected by trails, available for bicycling, hiking, horseback riding and other forms of recreation. Joe Ulozsas and Ben Hardy, foresters with the state Bureau of Forestry, indicated that they would offer technical assistance and maintain parts of the trail that would fall within forest land. A meeting of the steering committee will occur in August at a date and time to be announced.

SCRANTON -- With its first song Wednesday night at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain, Def Leppard showed why it is not like a lot of other bands. While many groups with a similar long and successful track record might be satisfied with playing its hits and keeping it safe with a dose of nostalgia, Def Leppard stormed onto the stage with “Undefeated,” the standout track from its most recent album “Mirrorball.” And with that opening salvo, the British superstars proved they are still a force to be reckoned with. The band consisting of vocalist Joe Elliott, guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell, bassist Rick “Sav” Savage and drummer Rick Allen is still in fine form, with its weaving guitars, rock-solid rhythm section and soaring vocals. Whether playing one of its anthems from the 1980s or one of its newer songs, the band still knows how to give the crowd what it wants. Early highlights included knockout versions of “Let’s Get Rocked,” “Animal” and “Love Bites,” followed by a great cover of “Rock On” and a nice, strippeddown version of “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak.” The band then hit its early stride with “Two Steps Behind”

before settling in for a long night of its hits. Special guests Heart opened the show with an impressive set of its own, focusing early on its ballads from the ’80s and then finishing up with its ’70s rockers. The Wilson sisters proved at least two things on Wednesday: one, singer Ann still retains one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in rock; and two, Nancy has some of the coolest rhythmguitarist moves this side of Keith Richards. Some of the ballads, such as Nancy’s vocal showcase “These Dreams” took on more of an acoustic feel, with Nancy playing mandolin and Ann playing a black acoustic guitar with a heart shaped center hole. Nancy played acoustic on most numbers, and unleashed a fine harmonica solo as part of “Never.” After playing “WTF,” a number from the band’s latest album “Red Velvet Car,” Heart finished

up strongly with dazzling versions of “Magic Man,” “Crazy On You,” and “Barracuda.” Following a brief exit, the band then treated the crowd to a stunning version of Led Zeppelin’s “What Is And What Should Never Be,” featuring some fine fretwork from guitarist Craig Bartock channeling his inner Jimmy Page. On most nights, Heart would have been worth the price of admission on its own, but on Wednesday they were just the opening course. The attendance figure for Wednesday’s show was not available at press time, but it looked like another sizeable crowd on the mountain. Def Leppard and Heart have upcoming Pennsylvania dates in Hershey on July 3 and in Pittsburgh on Aug. 20. The next concert at the Toyota Pavilion is the Vans Warped Tour on July 14.

City official says duplex sold for $7,500 because of its deplorable condition

W-B official defends house sale By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

LUZERNE COUNTY ASSESSOR’S OFFICE

The Carlisle Street house, as seen in 2005, before city bought it in 2007.

A Wilkes-Barre official defended the city’s sale of a Carlisle Street doubleblock for $7,500 last August, saying the interior of the property was in deplorable condition. The transaction has become an issue because Luzerne County Commissioner Stephen A. Urban, acting as a city resident, is seeking a federal investigation of the property’s sale to city resident Leo Glodzik. City Economic Development Director Greg Barrouk said one side of the property was completely gutted to the studs, and all the copper pipe and electrical wiring was removed. He said he couldn’t access the basement on that side because the stairs were missing.

The trial of a Shickshinny man scheduled to begin July 11 was continued at the request of attorneys Tuesday. John Stone, 59, charged in the September 2009 death of Catherine Tabit, will now stand trial on a single count of homicide on Sept. 19, Judge David Lupas said. Lupas said a pre-trial hearing will also be held Aug. 16. The trial was continued at the request of Stone’s attorneys, Joseph Albert and Erik Dingle, because they recently took on Stone’s case. Stone was previously represented by William Ruzzo. The case is being prosecuted by assistant district attorneys Jarrett Ferentino and Rebecca Reimiller. Police allege Stone used a 13-inch hatchet to strike Tabit, 37, of Kingston, after the two argued at Stone’s North Canal Street home. Police say the two fought back and forth when Stone grabbed a metal object, later identified as the hatchet.

Part owner of University Corners owes $293,000 to companies associated with W-B Chamber.

WILKES-BARRE – The California man whose company is part owner of the downtown University Corners development filed for personal bankruptcy. William W. Geary Jr. of Manhattan Beach listed debts of $39.3 million and assets of $724,984 in the May 27 Chapter 7 filing in Los Angeles. He indicated in the bankruptcy filing that he is unemployed and listed monthly income of $2,454 from Social Security and $1,417 from property. Included in the debt is $293,000 owed to companies associated with the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, which developed the $31 million complex containing a 14-screen movie theater, loft condominiums and retail space. The chamber companies were among the unsecured creditors and, according to the filing, Geary estimated there would be no funds available to pay them. Todd Vonderheid, president and chief executive officer of the chamber, referred specific questions about the bankruptcy to Geary and, in an email, added, “All I can say on the matter is that Bill Geary remains the general partner and majority owner of the complex and that everything in (Wilkes-Barre) is running as normal with no impact.” A message left with Geary was not returned Wednesday. Geary’s, Carlsberg Management Co., worked out a deal with the chamber in December 2008 to take over R/C Wilkes-Barre Movies 14 and the streetlevel retail space of the complex on East Northampton and South Main streets. University Corners LLC, managed by Carlsberg Properties Inc., assumed an $8.4 million note held by a consortium of 10 banks.

Anthony Munchak Jr. penned a letter to the federal judge who presided over his father’s corruption trial, suggesting the jury “was unduly swayed by the evidence and testimony” related to Robert Cordaro. Former Lackawanna County commissioners Robert Cordaro and A.J. Munchak were found guilty on multiple corruption charges June 21. The two were tried together. In his letter dated the same date as the verdict, Munchak’s son suggests the jury did not follow U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo’s “instructions correctly in separating each charge and weighing the evidence of each one individually. “Isn’t it reasonable to assume that if my dad was tried alone, the trial would have lasted only three or four days, and the outcome would have most likely been different?” Munchak Jr. asks. The younger Munchak also touts his father’s decades of community volunteer work and blood donations and suggests “it doesn’t make sense” he would demand money from contractors doing business with the county.

Jesse Geasey, 31, of Hanover Township, appeared Wednesday for a preliminary hearing in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on charges by city police that he slashed six people during a fight at Coal and North Meade streets on May 6. Senior District Judge Andrew Barilla determined prosecutors established a case against Geasey, sending eight counts each of aggravated assault and simple assault to county court. Four counts of simple assault and a single count of criminal conspiracy were dismissed against Geasey.

“Success can be measured by the obstacles you overcome,” Amesbury told the graduates. “Stay on this path of success.” Amesbury said drug and alcohol addictions affect behavior. “Drugs and alcohol change the brain and that changes behavior,” Amesbury, a former counselor, said. “People become disruptive and harmful and that can affect many lives – often innocent lives.” Amesbury said the rate of recidivism in U.S. prisons is 75 percent. “That is way too high,” he said.

One half of the property was inhabited up to the time it was sold to the city in an October 2007 back-tax sale, according to a relative of the prior owner. But Barrouk stressed the property was not occupied by the time the city acquired it.

“This program works; it’s much better than incarceration.” The BI Inc. program began in July 2010, and its mission is to reform criminals and cut costs by reducing the population at the county prison. Offenders selected are placed on home confinement and must report to the center for drug testing and mandatory treatment plans. Jennifer Lombardo, the Day Reporting Center director, said participants must be in the program for at least 120 days to earn graduation. The Luzerne County program is only the second DRC in Pennsylvania. The other is in Franklin County. Luzerne County Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla attended the ceremony, and recalled the day she and Piazza viston YMCA/YWCA, Dougherty said. Team leader Barbara Biacco, said she felt the project was a gratifying success after talking with a rehabilitation patient who proudly explained to her how he used the trail and successfully completed “the Alliance challenge.” Jane Dougherty, chairwoman of the board of Leadership Hazleton, said the team put a lot of hard work and effort into the project and she thanked them and 2008 appraisal Urban points to the city’s September 2008 appraisal of the property, which says the appraiser was requested to perform a drive-by appraisal and not disturb the occupants by entering the building.

unidentified contractor’s assertion that the property wasn’t worth $5,000 makes him question the county’s $74,500 assessment of the property. If the property ever came close to a value of $74,500, it would be after it was remodeled by Glodzik, Barrouk said. He suggested that Urban examine the accuracy of the county assessments. Urban said Wednesday the property’s need for interior work doesn’t change his belief

that it should have been sold for more than $7,500. “The land itself was assessed at $16,400,” Urban said. The 3,666-square-foot structure on a 0.11-acre lot is in an attractive neighborhood, he said. “It’s a nice neighborhood. That whole section is,” Urban said. Wilkes-Barre paid $8,500 to purchase the property from the tax sale and another $1,500 to close out federal mortgages linked to the property.

found at the Kingston Township property. A jury acquitted Selenski in the homicides of Keiler and James but found him guilty of abusing their corpses. Patrick Russin, 41, pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree murder in November 2003 in the deaths of Keiler and James. Russin is awaiting sentencing for his guilty plea. Pike requested to leave the case in December 2008, citing “irreconcilable conflict and difference of opinion.” Judge Chester Muroski in January 2009 denied his request, according to court re-

Surmick said Strong’s criminal activity over the years, including the robbery and kidnapping of three other men who picked Strong up as a hitchhiker, clearly shows he is a “monster.” “This is the kind of behavior that makes (you) believe in monsters,” Surmick told Burke. “I say to him, good riddance.” Strong’s attorney, Shelley Centini, said Strong accepts the jury’s decisions on his guilty and sentencing, but still asserts his innocence in the case. Strong did not speak at his sentencing hearing Wednesday.

nent out, when people can come outside on a beautiful day like today and enjoy not only rehab, but if you just want to come here for some exercise,” Edwards said. Lynne Miller, chief administrator officer, and Megan Scherer, project facilitator and assistant administrator, both of the health alliance, presented gift certificates to team members as a token of appreciation. Team members attending the ribbon cutting included Biacco, of Hazleton Professional Servic-

es; William Burke, McCann School of Business; Debbie Faith Kupsho, Hazleton Area School District; Brian Robinson, Cargill Meat Solutions; and Dominic Zapotocky, Bimbo Bakeries. Absent were team members Ignacio Beato and Niurka de la Rosa, both of Concerned Parents of the Hazleton Area; and Nina Dei Tos, of MMI Preparatory School.

Urban seeks probe Urban wants an investigation because he believes the city and possibly the federal government lost revenue on a sale that was too low. The city didn’t publicly advertise the purchase opportunity. City officials say the sale of city-controlled real estate is now advertised on the city website, though public advertising is not legally required. The transaction was part of the

city’s ongoing attempt to acquire and eliminate eyesores, officials say. Before the advertising, the city contacted people who had expressed an interest in buying city property, which is how Glodzik knew about the property, officials said. Glodzik is attempting to purchase another city property that was not advertised, and his company, LAG Towing, has the city’s towing contract.

mentioned the latest trial postponement sought by Pike. “I, in no way, agreed to this mitigation postponement and never would’ve agreed to it. Att(orney) Pike knows that. You absolutely know I never would’ve agreed, and as I can’t speak for President Judge (Thomas) Burke, I’m none-the-less of the belief he knew I would not agree to this postponement.” Selenski is serving a 37 ½-to-65-year state prison sentence after he was conHearing requested victed by a Monroe County jury in July Selenski requested a hearing within 2009 of robbing and assaulting a jewelry 30 days and a date for his trial.

Selenski further filed a two-page letter he wrote on June 17 addressed to Muroski who, up until Tuesday, presided over the case before it was reassigned to Judge William Amesbury. “Judge, it’s of my belief I’m being pushed off of trial until next year because of political reasons and the upcoming elections,” Selenski wrote to Muroski.

“Mr. Strong has waited for over 25 years for his name to be removed from the execution list,” Centini said Wednesday. “That’s where we find victory.” Strong always has, and still does, Centini said, maintain his innocence and will “undoubtedly” be filing appeals to the most recent conviction and sentence. Centini said the appeal will be filed within the appropriate time frame and that her entire defense team extends their condolences to the Strock family. Prosecutors say Strong and his one-time co-defendant, James Alexander, were hitch-

hiking and picked up by Strock along Interstate 81 near the Maryland border in August 1983. During the ride, Strong placed a shotgun on Stock’s shoulder and took control of his 1975 Ford, prosecutors said. Alexander was driving and stopped along the highway in Dorrance Township to relieve himself. Strong led Strock into the woods and shot him twice, prosecutors say. Strong was first convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death in 1984. The state Supreme Court overturn-

ed his conviction in November 2000, when it ruled Strong did not receive a fair trial because prosecutors failed to reveal they had made a deal with Alexander in exchange for Alexander’s testimony. The District Attorney’s Office was set to retry Strong in August 2007, but that trial was delayed after Strong’s former attorney filed an appeal with the state Superior Court arguing a retrial constituted double jeopardy, a provision within the U.S. Constitution that precludes a person from being tried twice for the same crime.

Panel rules against Avastin

of cancer experts has ruled A forpanela second time that Avastin, the

best-selling cancer drug in the world, should no longer be used in breast cancer patients, clearing the way for the government to remove its endorsement from the drug. The unprecedented vote Wednesday by the Food and Drug Administration advisory panel comes less than a year after the same panel reached the same conclusion. In three unanimous votes, the six members of the FDA oncology drug panel voted that Avastin is ineffective, unsafe and should have its approval for breast cancer withdrawn. The drug is approved for multiple cancers and will still be available for breast cancer, though most insurers are expected to drop coverage if it loses FDA approval

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he was optimistic about reaching an agreement with Republicans on a long-term debt reduction deal — but also was defensive about charges that he hasn’t shown enough leadership on the issue. “I think we can actually bridge our differences,” the president said at a wideranging news conference, his first since March. “Call me naive, but my expectation is that leaders are going to lead.” The Obama administration and Congress have struggled for weeks to find a way to reduce deficits. Obama’s target is $4 trillion in savings

over 10 to 12 years. The agreement would be attached to an increase in the debt limit. Unless that limit, which currently stands at $14.3 trillion, is raised by Aug. 2, the government risks default, which is likely to trigger economic chaos. "By Aug. 2, we run out of tools to make sure all our bills are paid. So that is a hard deadline," Obama said. Last week, the talks chaired by Vice President Joe Biden ended when the two congressional Republican participants quit, citing Democrats’ refusal to take tax increases off the table. Republican leaders insisted Obama get personally involved. Since then he has become involved, meeting Monday with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. He had planned to meet later Wednesday with Senate Democratic

leaders. The question-and-answer session with reporters also was Obama’s first since the U.S. military mission in Libya began about three months ago. Obama pushed back hard against claims he wasn’t leading on the debt issue, detailing how he has prodded law-

makers to meet and saying, “At a certain point, they (Congress) need to do their job.” Why, he asked, don’t they stay in Washington, like he does? “They’re in one week. They’re out one week. And then they’re saying, ‘Obama’s got to step in.’ You need to be here,” he said. “I’ve been here.”

LOS ALAMOS, N.M.

Fire advances in nuke lab A wildfire near the desert birthplace of the atomic bomb advanced on the Los Alamos laboratory and thousands of outdoor drums of plutonium-contaminated waste Tuesday as authorities stepped up efforts to protect the site and monitor the air for radiation. Officials at the nation’s premier nuclear-weapons lab gave assurances that dangerous materials were safely stored and capable of withstanding flames from the 95-square-mile fire, which at one point was as close as 50 feet from the grounds. A small patch of land at the laboratory caught fire Monday before firefighters quickly put it out. Teams were on alert to pounce on any new blazes and spent the day removing brush and low-hanging tree limbs from the lab’s perimeter. VERACRUZ, MEXICO

First Atlantic storm forms The first tropical storm of the Atlantic season gained force as it headed for Mexico’s central Gulf coast on Wednesday, bringing a threat of floods and mudslides. Tropical Storm Arlene could hit land north of the coastal city of Tuxpan early Thursday a little short of hurricane force, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. Officials in the states of Veracruz, Tamaulipas and San Luis Potosi said they were monitoring the storm and preparing for possible flooding. The state oil company Petroleos Mexicanos, said it would consider whether to evacuate its oil platforms off the Veracruz coast later Wednesday. The main threat to Mexico comes from heavy rains that could cause flash floods and mudslides in 13 states, the government said. Forecasters say extreme south Texas also could get rain. ORLANDO, FLA.

Note roils Anthony trial Casey Anthony’s father wrote in a suicide note that he had unanswered questions about what happened to his granddaughter, a revelation that undercuts defense claims that the toddler drowned and he helped cover it up. Casey Anthony is on trial for murder in central Florida, accused of suffocating 2-year-old Caylee with duct tape in the summer of 2008. Defense attorneys, who have been trying to paint the Anthony family as dysfunctional, say Caylee drowned in her grandparents’ pool and Casey’s father, George, disposed of the body. George Anthony wrote in his suicide note about “unanswered questions” and that he chose to kill himself because “I needed at that time to go be with Caylee because I knew I failed her.”

19 killed in attack on hotel in Afghanistan Militants’ move comes as plans advance to pull U.S. troops out of country. By RAHIM FAIEZ and DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan — Nineteen people died — including all eight suicide bombers — in a more than fivehour standoff at the Inter-Continental that ended early Wednesday after NATO attack helicopters fired missiles to kill three suicide bombers on the roof. It was one of the biggest and most complex attacks orchestrated in the Afghan capital and appeared designed to show that the insurgents are capable of striking even in the

center of power at a time when U.S. officials are speaking of progress in the nearly 10-year war. It started with one loud explosion at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, startling hotel guests. The brazen attack occurred just a week after President Ba-

rack Obama announced the beginning of a U.S. troop withdrawal next month. The transfer of security responsibility to the Afghans is due to officially begin in seven areas of the nation, including most of Kabul province, in coming weeks. Militants, armed with ex-

plosive vests, anti-aircraft weapons and grenade launchers, attacked on the eve of a conference in the capital about transition plans. The conference went on Wednesday as planned. Afghan President Hamid Karzai vowed his army and police would be ready to take over from foreign forces as planned, warning the militants are “enjoying the killing of innocent people.” U.S. Rear Adm. Vic Beck, director of PR for the international military coalition, said Afghan forces responded quickly and professionally to the scene — even though NATO helicopters were later called in. NATO said coalition mentors also were partnered with some of the units involved in the incident.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Wednesday dismissed the congressional criticism of his decision to wage war against Libya as political and argued that any sign of support from Washington for strongman Moammar Gadhafi makes no sense. Pushing back against Republicans and Democrats, Obama defended his decision to order U.S. military action more than three months ago and insisted he had not violated the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which requires congressional authorization within 60 days of the first military strikes. The president claims Americans supporting the NA- “We have TO-led operation are not en- engaged in gaged in full- a limited blown hostilities, making operation congressional to help a consent unneclot of peoessary. “We have en- ple against gaged in a limitone of the ed operation to help a lot of peo- worst typle against one rants in of the worst tyrants in the the world.” world, somePresident body who noObama body should want to defend,” Obama said at a White House news conference. “And we should be sending out a unified message to this guy that he should step down and give his people a fair chance to live their lives without fear. And this suddenly becomes the cause celebre for some folks in Congress? Come on.” The reason, the president said, is “a lot of this fuss is politics.” In fact, congressional Republicans and Democrats have challenged Obama’s authority and claims. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 14-5 on Tuesday for a resolution approving the military campaign against Libya, but only after adopting an amendment by Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., that said the U.S. military actions are hostilities that require congressional approval under the War Powers Resolution. Last week, the House voted overwhelmingly against giving Obama the authority to continue the military mission but stopped short of cutting off funds. House Republicans and Democrats contend that Obama has not provided a compelling rationale for the operation and ignored Congress in not seeking its authority.

Carole Ann Tomasky Hill June 28, 2011 arole Ann Tomasky Hill, 67, of C Dallas, entered into her eternal rest at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, 2011, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania after a courageous battle. Carole was born in Swoyersville on January 23, 1944, a daughter to the late Joseph and Helen (Reto) Tomasky. After graduating from West Side Central Catholic and College Misericordia, she began her career at the Luzerne County Courthouse. Her next position was at the Denison Cemetery, helping families at their most difficult time with grace and compassion. During her retirement, she enjoyed gardening, sketching, volunteering, cooking, her membership in the Gate of Heaven Altar and Rosary Society, Notre Dame and Penn State football (as she would say, you can enjoy both), spending time with her grandchildren, and her “just the girls” adventures with her daughter, Lynn. Carole was a loving wife, devoted mother and wonderful grandmother. She was a great friend to all who knew her, and many considered her a second mother. She is survived by her husband, David, with whom she celebrated her 40th anniversary in September; her son, James Cunningham of Nan-

ticoke; her daughter, Lynn Hill of Nanticoke; and her two grandchildren, D.J. and Bailey Cunningham. The family would like to thank all of the loving and compassionate nurses who made her struggle as comfortable as possible. They truly are angels on Earth. As Carole’s wishes, calling hours will be from 9 to 10 a.m. Friday at the Corcoran Funeral Home Inc., 20 S.

Embracing differences

Diversity camp tackles issues, promotes change By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – It’s a simple lesson, but one worth learning. “I’m not different from you; I’m different just like you.” That was Misericordia Diversity Institute Director Scott Richardson’s message to the students in the institute’s annual Summer Camp, which wraps up today. The Diversity Institute Camp strives to engage diversity and promote positive change in the local community by promoting leadership, resources and support. For 14 years, the camp has challenged area high school students to question “what is diversity,” to recognize the diversity around them and to become leaders in their communities. “The point of it is that we’re all equal; we’re all one person,” 17year-old Hazleton Area High School student and camp member Yarisa Polanco said. “The idea is to break the cycle of prejudice and racism, and accept change in our everyday lives,” added fellow camper Andrew Coco, a 16-year-old Wyoming Area High School student. Campers live on campus at Misericordia for five days and participate in lessons and activities examining different sorts of diversity, including diversity of age, religion and sexual orientation. For a lesson on aging, Area Agency on Aging Director of Community Services Linda Ko-

hut asked students to perform tasks such as counting money wearing special gloves to simulate the effects of arthritis and stiff joints. And on Tuesday, the students reached out to area children, hosting children’s games at the

playground in Wilkes-Barre Townhomes off Wilkes-Barre Boulevard. Camp members and advisers played carnival games and made puppets and friendship bracelets with children living in the housing community. “This is where it starts, with

the young people,” local diversity advocate Angel Jirau said at the event Tuesday. “I wish there were more adults here,” he continued. “This is much needed with the adult population, so they could learn from these young people; how they come together.” Carlo Mendez, an 8-year-old Spanish speaker who uses a wheelchair, said he enjoyed the event and made many new friends. “I wish there were more events like this,” he said, speaking through an interpreter. “I really liked the games, and wish they would do things like this more often.” But at a time when the region is growing in diversity, and it may be needed more than ever, the camp is struggling with new challenges. In previous years, the camp hosted as many as 90 students, but state budget cuts to education have hit the camp hard. Schools pay a fee for each student they send to the camp, covering operating costs not subsidized by sponsors. Camp Director Erica Acosta said school districts facing budget crunches sent fewer students to the camp this year, and some have opted out altogether. This year there are 24 students, ages 16 to 18, in the camp. Jirau lamented those changes. “If we don’t promote diversity, and get these people together, we’re going to have all the problems that these bigger cities have,” he said.

SCRANTON – Months after asking Roman Catholics in the 11-county Diocese of Scranton to help “articulate a vision for the future,” Bishop Joseph Bambera issued his “prayerful and obedient response … to what I have heard among you.” On Tuesday, the diocese released a 16-page document titled “Wounded and loved, regathering the scattered: A pastoral vision for the Church of Scranton.” In it, Bambera gives broad outlines of the responses he received after asking Catholics for input on six questions last November. He then gives an overview of his proposals for how the diocese should move forward after years of divisive decisions on school and church closings. Overall, the document continues Bambera’s central theme since he was first picked in February 2010 to replace Bishop Joseph Martino: Work together. “Faith is not a private affair acted upon in isolation,” Bambera wrote. “It means living out a faith commitment with a community of people.” Bambera noted his decision to include “Wound” in the title met with some resistance because it might be too “pessimistic,” but he stuck with it because the faithful have had to cope with the closings and with the priest sex abuse scandal. Embracing “our brokenness and wounds,” Bambera wrote, is necessary “to take the first steps to healing.” The bishop lists seven things “I heard you say,” including that the closings were painful, people want Catholic schools to continue, the dio-

cese is not doing enough to reach youth and too many people “are no longer actively practicing their Bambera faith.” He then lists a wide range of “practical considerations” in moving forward, most of them broadly stated. Some of those considerations: • “Promote full incorporation of youth and young adults into the life of the parish.” • “Engage a life-long Faith Formation Minister to coordinate religious education and or youth ministry for the parish or regional partnership.” • Encourage “prayer and cooperation among various religious traditions.” • “Incorporate Catholic colleges and universities more fully into the life of the diocesan parishes.” • “Engage a Director of Liturgy in each parish or cluster of parishes to coordinate worship for the community.” • “Involve all parishioners in social ministry and include awareness of human needs into all aspects of parish life and worship.” • “Identify and act on local social concerns.” • “Form regional or partnership ‘assessment teams’ that determine strategies of service in the area.” Bambera suggests the formation of “regional partnerships” of parishes and a sense of “co-responsibility” among clergy and lay people. He concedes this can be difficult because “the Church is hierarchical, and some in pastoral leadership fear that co-responsibility … will do little more than destabilize its theological underpinnings.” But he concludes with the upbeat message that has become his hallmark. “I am excited by what we can achieve together.”

Penalty phase of trial begins for Elvis Riccardi, convicted of murdering Donald Skiff Jr. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Donald Skiff Sr. says he is living every parent’s nightmare. “Why couldn’t it have been me who died?” Skiff, of Plymouth, said to a jury of eight women and four men in the first day of testimony in the penalty phase for Elvis Riccardi, convicted Tuesday in the death of Skiff’s 34-year-old son, Donald Skiff Jr. “Tears are now a way of life for me,” the elder Skiff said, visibly shaken and emotional while telling jurors about his son. “I can’t help but wonder what he was thinking (in the last moments of his life).” Skiff went missing on April 27, 2009, after fishing with friends. His body was found five weeks later in a wooded area off Suscon Road in Jenkins Township. Riccardi faces either the death penalty or life in prison after the sentencing phase of his trial is complete. Prosecutors called their only two witnesses Wednesday, Skiff Sr. and his daughter, Dawn Pollick of Glen Lyon. Defense attorneys began calling witnesses and will continue to do so today, Senior Judge Joseph Augello said. Skiff recalled the day his son went missing, knowing something had gone terribly wrong when police found Skiff’s truck burned in the Plymouth Flats area a few days later. Skiff knew his son wasn’t with his girlfriend or off on a vacation as police insisted. “I rarely left the house … hoping he’d appear,” Skiff said. “I couldn’t eat or sleep.” Skiff said he could only imagine what his son went through after he was himself severely beaten inside his home by a stranger in November 2010. “Only, it’s not the same because I lived,” Skiff said. He spoke of the void left in his family by his son’s death. “This is a reality beyond comprehension,” Skiff said. “A parent should die before his child … It’s not the natural (progression) of life.” Pollick, sister of Donald Skiff Jr., testified she and her brother had an “unspoken

connection” and were very close. Her parents, Pollick said, divorced when she and her Riccardi brother were 8 and 4, respectively, leaving their father to raise them. The Skiff siblings had no secrets because neither would judge the other, and “Donnie” was the one person she could count on, she said. “I feel like my soul is empty … all I have left are memories,” Pollick said. The death penalty is the sentence Riccardi should receive, District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll said, because of two aggravating circumstances: Skiff was killed during a felony crime and he was killed by means of torture. Augello outlined at the beginning of Wednesday’s proceeding more than 40 reasons why defense attorneys intend to prove that life in prison is the appropriate sentence. Those reasons included that Riccardi is mentally retarded, he has had seizures and a stroke, four of his siblings committed suicide and he attempted suicide, he suffers from bipolar disorder and depression, he grew up in a filthy, financially strapped home, he was neglected and abused by his mother, he was sexually assaulted and he has been in and out of jail since he was 16. Defense attorneys on Wednesday began calling members of Riccardi’s family, including two of his brothers and his sister-in-law, who testified about the tough upbringing they had and their filthy home when they lived in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Riccardi’s aunt, Elizabeth Gallina, testified her sister and Riccardi’s mother, Audrey Lewis, kept a filthy house and that one time when she tried to help her clean, she found a washing machine full of maggots. Lewis’ home had rats, cockroaches and dirty dishes piled up, Gallina said, and she often bought food for Lewis’ children because there was none in the house Gallina said Lewis would make her children kneel on rice with their hands out as punishment, and if their hands dropped, they’d be beaten.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Is it a beautiful structure that should have been restored? Absolutely. Can we force developers to come in? No.” Maryanne Petrilla The Luzerne County commissioner chairwoman summarized the plight of the Hotel Sterling in downtown Wilkes-Barre after discussions Wednesday with the city’s mayor regarding the vacant building’s probable demolition. The mayor reportedly agreed to help seek part of the estimated $1 million needed to dismantle the nearly 115-year-old structure.

OTHER OPINION: OIL RESERVES

Gas price dip short-term fix

T

HE GLOBAL effort to lower fuel prices by releasing oil from reserves comes at an odd time. Gasoline prices have been falling for at least six weeks. The average U.S. price – $3.61 – is already 8 percent below its peak in early May. We’re not facing a significant supply crunch – certainly nothing like the economic climate after Hurricane Katrina, the last time the reserves were tapped. What seems to be going on has less to do with market conditions than with politics, specifically the Obama administration’s deepening worries that the economy is stagnating or veering into a double dip. About half of the oil release – about 1 million barrels a day – will come from U.S. reserves over the next 30 days. Yes, it will have an effect. It already has: Oil prices dropped by several dollars after the announcement, a hefty move that also reflected broad

hints from the administration that more oil releases are in store. In the short run, it’s good news for consumers and the economy. But the longer-run effect will be much more iffy. Over the last two or three years, we’ve seen a series of short-term fixes that have had little lasting economic effect. Cash for clunkers and tax credits for home buyers are two examples. These quick fixes have produced short-term bursts of activity but without long-lasting benefits. Anyone remember President Ford’s “WIN” (for Whip Inflation Now) buttons in the 1970s? Rather than abet the oil thirst with cheaper gas, the nation still needs far more investment in alternative energy development. It has the best potential to create jobs, add revenue to the economy and provide a more stable energy future. The Kansas City Star

R

ecently, state Sen. John Blake, D-Archbald, and other Democratic senators have been touting a supposed $540 million Pennsylvania surplus. The idea that there is a spendable surplus is both false and misleading. This supposed surplus is merely $540 million in collected revenues above the previously projected revenues through May of this year. It is time to face facts. We are facing a serious fiscal crisis in Pennsylvania. The immediate short-term deficit facing the commonwealth is estimated at $4.2 billion. The commonwealth’s actual long-term debt stands at more than $52 billion. In the most basic terms, each Pennsylvania taxpayer’s share of this debt currently stands at more than $12,200. Some of the obligations that are owed include: nearly $4 billion for unemployment compensation owed to the federal government; $33.4 billion for unreported pension obligations; the state’s retirement systems are underfunded by some $35.1 billion; and former Gov. Ed Rendell inappropriately spent $800 million from the medical malpractice fund (Mcare). Rather than waste the money on additional spending, the money should be used to pay down some of Pennsylvania’s massive debt. It is time we get our fiscal house in order!

Power outages spark customer’s discontent

I

am writing to complain about the recent power outages in Swoyersville. Every summer it seems if there is so much as a rain storm or a clap of thunder, we lose our power on Chapel Street. This is very disruptive. I am aware things such as this happen from time to time, but it seems as though this is a common occurrence and something needs to be done. Each power outage ranges from at least an hour to several hours. Upon calling UGI to report the incidents, we usually are told, in essence: I have no clue why the power is out; I have no clue when it will be back on; and, no, we will not compensate you or adjust your bill for your inconvenience. This is poor customer service. I have a severely autistic child who cannot comprehend why he cannot turn the power on or off, and it usually results in him having a meltdown and me having to drive him around in the car until the situation is resolved. I am not an impossible customer by any means. I pay my electric bill every month and expect that situations such as this

occur rarely, rather than several times per summer. There also does not appear to be any sort of backup plan in place. We feel as though we live in Walnut Grove from “Little House on the Prairie.” I expect more from my utility company. Lesa Shusta Swoyersville

Former Sterling dweller calls for rescue of hotel

I

’ve watched with great interest over the years the gradual decline of the oncegreat Hotel Sterling, and I am most saddened to see what has become of this grande dame. Wilkes-Barre is not the only city, large or small, to have suffered economically over the last few decades. However, it would appear that Wilkes-Barre seems to have a tougher time than most when it comes to dealing with its landmarks. I used to live at the Hotel Sterling while attending Wilkes University in the late 1970s. I later returned to Wilkes-Barre to work at WKRZ-FM in the early ’80s. I dined many times in the beautiful General Sullivan restaurant, with “Nella” often serving me. I recall the gorgeous Crystal Ballroom, and even once threw a party in the Blue Room. I walked up and down “Peacock Alley” more times than I can recall. I am well-traveled and have stayed in some of the world’s finest hotels, but the Hotel Sterling always has remained near and dear to my heart. Now, to think that all that remains of her, the original 1897 building, might be torn down does not just sadden me, it angers me. Witness Utica, N.Y.: Not exactly a bastion of industry these days, yet that city managed to restore the Hotel Utica, and she is once again a beautiful hotel. Although a larger city, Detroit suffered greatly over the years, and many historical gems (far more than Wilkes-Barre) still lay abandoned or have been torn down. However, even after decades of abandonment, both the Fort Shelby Hotel and the historic, grand icon, the Westin Book Cadillac hotel have been restored, the latter at a cost of some $200 million; it features condos, hotel rooms and banquet rooms. Even Scranton took a train station and turned it into a hotel. It seems that Wilkes-

DOONESBURY: FLASHBACK

Barre can’t even save a hotel that it has. However, it can take $3 million intended for the Sterling and throw it into a bus station. What a shame. I admire CityVest’s intentions and agree that the Sterling’s tower (where I used to live) and connector building needed to go. (It’s sad the tower had to go, it was another important architectural structure, designed by Warren and Wetmore, designers of Grand Central Terminal in New York City.) I can even understand the acquisition of additional property in order to make the property marketable. Unfortunately, it would appear that CityVest forgot one important thing: Mothballing the original building. This is documented in numerous articles, and during my last visit to Wilkes-Barre in 2005 it was apparent no real attention was being paid to its prized gem: the original hotel. Being well aware of Wilkes-Barre and Luzerne County politics and financial dealings, I will not comment about that; that’s something with which the taxpayers and voters need to deal. However, when it comes to the Hotel Sterling I have one thing to say to the powers that be: Wilkes-Barre, get your act together. Tearing down the Sterling should not be an option. I won’t have to be embarrassed when they tear her down, as I no longer live there. I won’t blame the politicians and power brokers; I’ll blame those people who vote them into office. It’s your city, save it! Save the Sterling. Restore her and turn her back into a hotel, and I’ll book the best room on the first night she reopens! Go ahead: I challenge you to do that! Louis J. Betti Fort Lee, N.J.

Courthouse clocking a waste of time, money

T

hank God we have home rule on the way. Apparently, these Luzerne County commissioners are sure going to try to make it not work – with their ridiculous spending. Time clocks, as I previously read, were to cost $435,000 or so. When did the new figure of nearly $510,000 suddenly arise? Not only did that initial expense rise, we also will be burdened with $5,000 per month for maintenance. That adds up to $570,000 on a system that is a complete waste. Many times I have requested answers to these questions: Where is the abuse? Who are the responsible managers? And, if you knew of the problem, why didn’t you stop it years ago? Please show me where you are to save $1.8 million. I am tired of that figure being used without any apparent basis. It is a wasteful, unnecessary project, especially at this time, with this economy.

Board hikes tax, slashes many costs and programs Six retiring teachers will not be replaced, and a tutoring program will be abolished.

By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

KINGSTON – In a brief meeting with no discussion, the Wyoming Valley West School Board unanimously approved a $59.6 million budget on Wednesday that raises property taxes 6

percent and uses a wide range of spending cuts to save more than $2 million compared to the preliminary budget. Property taxes will rise from 12.7 mills to 13.5 mills. A mill is a $1 tax on every $1,000 of assessed property value. Business Manager Joe Rodriquez said the big savings come from not replacing six retiring teachers at a cost of about $250,000, eliminating a tutoring program that cost $310,000, and

putting off renovations of a former church being converted into a wellness center near the high school, saving $208,000. Another $30,000 in smaller renovation projects was canceled. The budget also cuts $232,000 from buildings and grounds for supplies, equipment and utilities. Rodriguez said the people in the department agreed they could make the cuts. Another $108,000 was cut from classroom materials and supplies, and $42,000 from

Seven special-education aide positions will be cut through attrition, saving about $80,000, along with a $30,000 cut in special-education supplies. One custodian position will be eliminated, saving about $40,000. Rodriguez said the district was “over-

Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed budget eliminated all money for those grants. Corbett also zeroed out the state dual-enrollment grant program, which paid to send high school seniors to college classes. The district budget reflects that,

He said the board will discuss the issue with a parents’ support club that has launched multiple fundraising events to help keep the program alive.

Area’s delegation in Harrisburg divides on issues linked to Pa. budget By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

Passage of the 2011-12 state budget was by strict party lines and many Democrats are criticizing not only cuts in the budget, but also the way Republicans are interpreting them. State Rep. Gerald Mullery, DNewport Township, said the first speaker to address the budget was the Majority Appropriations Chairman Bill Adolph, a Republican. “He said, and I quote, ‘This budget makes education a priority.’ ” In response, Mullery said, “This budget is an anti-education budget. Public schools across the Commonwealth have been forced to eliminate programs, cut classes and activities, close buildings, and furlough thousands of employees.” Mullery said he would vote “no” on the budget. On Wednesday, the House passed the measure that was approved Tuesday night by the Senate – again on a strict party line vote of 30 to 20. Mullery said that as the result of the budget bill, Crestwood

School District was considering the elimination of full-day kindergarten, Greater Nanticoke Area has eliminated its Family Center and Hanover Area has closed an elementary school and cut junior high sports. Additionally, more than 100 positions have been furloughed in the five school districts Mullery represents. Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, said in a news release she would vote against the budget because it makes working families, students and seniors sacrifice unnecessarily while giving the biggest businesses a free pass. "This budget is penny wise and pound foolish," Mundy said. Mundy said the cuts to basic and higher education are the

BUDGET Continued from Page 1A

Majority Leader Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny, said the budget eliminated wasteful spending, did not add to the state’s debt load and contained none of the legislatively directed grants known as “walking around money.” “This is a historic budget in that it is fiscally responsible, prioritized and on time,” Turzai said. Meanwhile, an effort to place a severance tax on natural gas drillers in the state was put off. Many more Democrats than Republicans spoke during several hours of floor debate, and many predicted deep cuts in education spending will translate into higher local property taxes, fewer teachers, larger class sizes and higher college tuition rates. “Our voices have been stifled, our constituents have been disenfranchised and debate has not been allowed to take place,” said Rep. Dan Frankel of Allegheny County, the Democratic caucus chairman. “This is a prime example of what a budget looks like when Republicans are the deciders.” Appropriations Committee Chairman Bill Adolph, R-Delaware, told members the bill restored $30 million for public

most glaring example of the budget’s short sightedness. She said school districts in her legislative district were cut by about $3 million, which will mean larger class sizes and more of a burden on local taxpayers. Mundy said state prison statistics show the value of an education. “Seventy-five percent of state prison inmates have not completed high school,” Mundy said. “And yet this budget cuts education funding while increasing state funding for prisons.” Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich, D-Taylor, also voted against the spending plan. “This Corbett-Republican budget is unduly harsh on working families and senior citizens while it protects big corpora-

schools and $300 million for higher education above what the House had previously approved, as well as more funding for such programs as breast cancer and domestic violence and for critical care hospitals. Other Republicans praised the budget for a spending reduction of about 3 percent from the current year. “We’d like to be happy-go-lucky, handing out money here and there and yonder,” said Rep. Scott Petri, R-Bucks. “This budget surgically goes line by line by line to try to ensure that services can be delivered at more efficient dollars.” Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, said schools have already begun laying off employees in response to the budget bill. Republicans “own these cuts,” Mundy said. “We could do much better than this. We should do much better than this for our families, our vulnerable citizens.” The budget spends about $200 million of the current year’s surplus, revenues that have outpaced projections by some $700 million, Budget Secretary Charles Zogby said. Democrats said they were getting conflicting answers about the surplus and argued the money should be used to decrease reductions in education and human services. “This budget says, ‘Hooray for me and the heck with you,’ ” said Rep. Bud George, D-Clearfield. “It says, ‘The rich get richer and the poor get babies.’ Today

tions and big oil and natural gas companies from having to pay their fair share of taxes,” he said in an emailed statement. He listed the amount of funding lost per student in schools in his district. In Pittston Area, the loss would be $357 per student, his email stated. Clashing viewpoints Across the aisle, state Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, put a different spin on the budget. “The basic education funding is currently more than last year’s state allocation, and there is no tax increase,” Toohil said. “We are working to move Pennsylvania forward in a fiscally responsible manner without the need for reckless spending and tax increases.”

But Rep. Mike Carroll, D-Avoca, said he was voting against the budget bill because it “simply does not reflect my priorities on state spending, especially when you consider the drastic education cuts, especially cuts for public education.” Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, DWilkes-Barre, said legislators spent almost two hours Wednesday morning trying to find all the changes in the various parts of the budget. “We asked for more time, but the Republicans refused,” he said. State Sen. John Yudichak, DPlymouth Township, on Tuesday voted against the bill he says “dangerously sells short our young people, threatens to burden local school districts and would put higher education

our economy is called the Great Recession, but I call this pending plan the great recession of compassion, of common sense and of kindness.” Rep. Greg Vitali, D-Delaware, failed in his efforts to increase funding for the Department of Environmental Protection, saying “draconian cuts put the health and safety of Pennsylvanians at risk.” Also Wednesday, the Senate gave preliminary approval to a bill that would give the Corbett administration more power to change policies in a range of human services and welfare programs. Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, R-Delaware, said the 23-page

amendment would allow more flexibility as the administration works to reduce costs and increase efficiency, in an effort to achieve spending cuts in the budget bill. Democrats and advocates for the poor warned that the amendment, which they’d barely seen before Republicans brought it up for a vote, would allow the imposition of new regulations without public input. They said the state could then increase co-pays, eliminate eligibility, curtail services and deny public assistance to a person convicted of a felony drug offense who refuses to take a drug test.

out of the reach for many Pennsylvanians.” He said school districts in his region will face a severe cut of $23,687,669. “On average that is a 13.3 percent cut from 2010-11,” Yudichak said. He said community colleges, private universities and colleges, state system schools and state-related colleges and universities will see their funding decrease and tuition increase. Natural gas disagreement Yudichak said Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate and even natural gas industry officials realize that now is the time for a fair tax or fee on natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale. Across the Senate aisle, Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, said the final state spending plan is about as good a result as could be negotiated with the money available. “When you are facing a $4.2 billion deficit, you are not going to be able to do everything you were able to do previously,” Baker said.

There is traditionally a crush of lawmaking in the days before the General Assembly takes a break for the summer. But midway through the final week of the fiscal year, the Legislature has not given final approval to bills that would impose new regulations for abortion clinics, limit school property tax increases or prevent the city of Harrisburg from seeking bankruptcy protection. The House on Wednesday also sent Corbett a bill establishing PennWATCH, a public website that will provide detailed information on state finances. Imposition of a fee or tax on Marcellus Shale natural gas extraction was apparently put off until fall, at least, after Corbett said Tuesday he would veto anything that passes before his hand-picked commission reports back to him next month with recommendations. “We face the potential for environmental catastrophe, and yet we are passing a budget this week, and once again we are passing by an opportunity to do the right thing and tax this industry,” said Rep. Steve Santarsiero, D-Bucks. “Something the overwhelming majority of Pennsylvanians support.” School vouchers, a priority of Corbett’s, were declared dead for the time being, as lawmakers will soon depart Harrisburg for their customary twomonth summer break.

Stunning loss

Doing his best to resolve this predicament

By ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Vance Worley didn’t get Dustin Pedroia’s autograph. He got the former MVP’s attention — and the rest of the Boston Red Sox, too. Worley pitched seven strong innings, Raul Ibanez hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Red Sox 2-1 on Wednesday night. PHILLIES Worley (3-1) allowed one run, five hits and struck out five. The rookie right-hander has filled in nicely for injured RED SOX starters Roy Oswalt and Joe Blanton. He sent someone to get Pedroia’s signature on a ball before the game, but came up empty. “He wouldn’t give me one until I met him,” Worley said. “Then I threw one up and in on him so I probably won’t get it now.” Worley dusted Pedroia with a high-and-tight

Pittston Area girls basketball coach Kathy Healey recently returned from a vacation to Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Today, she’s heading back to the city for what she hopes will prove to be one of the most exciting experiences of her coaching career. Healey is the head coach of the Rock Solid AAU eighth grade girls basketball team, which is based at the Rock Recreation Center in Trucksville. Beginning Sunday, the Rock Solid team will begin play in the eighth grade national championship at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. The tournament, which concludes July 8, consists of 48 of the top teams in the country. The Rock Solid squad qualified for the event by posting a 25-1 record while competing against teams from Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York

he magical mystery tour of Phil Hughes took a turn for the better with his marvelous pitching performance in Trenton. Will it finally take him all the way back to New York? Probably not just yet. Despite his proclamation Wednesday about feeling ready to pitch in the big leagues again, Hughes would be well served pitching at least one game at Scranton/WilkesBarre. It appears that’s exactly where he’s headed, for Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre’s Fourth of July battle with Lehigh Valley. “From what I’ve Hughes heard, one more (appearance),” Hughes said of his minor league string of injury rehabilitation starts. He looked great in his most recent one. Hughes walked out to the mound Wednesday for Trenton at Waterfront Park and proceeded to dominate Double-A batters. Hughes cruised through the New Hampshire lineup, retiring the first 10 men he faced and gave up just three hits in 6 1/3 dominant innings. “He’s obviously the best guy I’ve caught down here the past two years,” said his Trenton batterymate and Yankees catching prospect Austin Romine. The unknown arm ailment that made Hughes’ arm feel dead and robbed speed from his fastball seems to have healed, as Hughes topped out at 93 mph with his fastball, according to Trenton manager Tony Franklin. “I felt like I could let it go and it was free and easy,” Hughes said. And most encouraging of all, Hughes hit the strike zone effortlessly. He threw a season-high 88 pitches, 61 for strikes, and fanned eight batters while walking just two. “My pitcher was extremely good,” Franklin raved. “I never saw a pitch that missed by a wide margin.” Then why keep Hughes from crossing the boundary of the big leagues? Because his final frames of work at Trenton told a telling tale. His pitches were tagged on two hard outs to the outfield in the fifth inning, and one of those turned into a leaping grab against the wall. Later in that inning, Hughes allowed a single and his first walk. Facing his final three batters of the game in the seventh, Hughes surrendered a single and a walk to the first two of them. His stamina appeared sapped. “Last inning, I maybe fatigued a little bit,” Hughes said. “I wasn’t perfect by any means.” He can perfect his form facing Triple-A batters on the Fourth of July, which appears to be New York’s plan for him. The parent Yankees are preparing to get the pitcher who won 18 games for them last season, not the Phil Hughes who barely topped 90 mph on the radar gun during his first few starts this season. But the truth is, Hughes hasn’t been an All-Star caliber pitcher since the first half of 2010. It’s fair to wonder if his tired arm was mostly a product of New York’s game plan of babying pitchers throughout their minor league development.

Up 2 sets, Federer falls to Tsonga

By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

WIMBLEDON, England — For two superb sets Wednesday, everything looked so routine for Roger Federer, precisely the way it did for so many years at Wimbledon — and nearly everywhere else, too. Little comes easily for Federer anymore, even at the All England Club, where he’s won six of his record 16 major championships. Before Wednesday, Federer was

178-0 when taking the first two sets of a Grand Slam match. Now he’s 178-1. Facing a younger, quicker and better-serving opponent, Federer failed to make his big lead stand up and lost 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to 12th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in the quarterfinals. Federer leaves Wimbledon in that round for the second consecutive year, after reaching seven finals in a row from 2003-09. Nevertheless, Federer sounded de-

fiant in defeat, saying he played well against Tsonga and is sure he “definitely can” add to his Grand Slam collection, even though he’ll turn 30 in August. “When I was 20, I would have been crushed: ’I can’t go on; I’ll never get another chance to be in a quarterfinal of a Grand Slam.’ But today, I know that I should probably have lots more,” said Federer, who lost in the See WIMBLEDON , Page 6B

MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Burnett, Martin power Yankees The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A.J. Burnett pitched neatly into the eighth inning, Russell Martin hit a three-run homer and the New York Yankees kept rolling right along with a 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. Robinson Cano tripled to start a four-run fourth inning and Jorge Posada rounded the bases twice on his solo shot in the sixth, which was changed to a home run after umpires watched the video replay. Nick Swisher had an RBI single for the Yankees, who have won four straight and 14 of 18 overall. By taking the first two games against Milwaukee in an interleague matchup of division leaders, New York clinched its sixth consecutive series victory since getting swept at home by Boston from June 7-9. The AL East leaders announced good news on three injured All-Stars, too. Derek Jeter could rejoin the team next week in Cleveland, ready to resume his pursuit of 3,000 hits. Phil Hughes was sharp in a rehab start for Double-A Trenton and could be back in the rotation real soon. And fellow right-hander Bartolo Colon is lined up to pitch Saturday against the Mets if all goes well this week. Without them, the Yankees are doing just fine. They improved to 11-3 since Jeter went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf — he was eligible to come off Wednesday, but wasn’t ready yet. Jeter’s replacement at shortstop, Eduardo Nunez, made a throwing error to start the eighth that allowed leadoff batter Rickie Weeks to reach safely. That was it for Burnett (8-6), who left to a standing ovation after losing three of his previous four starts. Helped by three double plays, the right-hander gave up two runs and seven hits while walking two and striking out four. Mets 16, Tigers 9

DETROIT — Scott Hairston launched a bases-loaded triple and Ronny Paulino contributed four hits as part of another offensive barrage by the New York Mets, who beat the Detroit Tigers 16-9 on Wednesday night. The Mets set a team record by scoring 52 runs in a fourgame span, STATS LLC said. They have 69 hits during their spree. Tigers utilityman Don Kelly got the final out, becoming the first Detroit position player to pitch since 2000. Blue Jays 2, Pirates 1

TORONTO — Yunel Escobar doubled home the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning, Brandon Morrow struck out 10 and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 on Wednesday night. Rookie outfielder Eric Thames hit his first career home run for Toronto, a solo shot in the sixth. Cardinals 5, Orioles 1

BALTIMORE — Chris Carpenter scattered seven hits for his second complete game of the season and Colby Rasmus homered to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Wednesday night. Carpenter (3-7) threw a season-high 132 pitches to win his second straight start following a five-game losing streak. The right-hander struck out five, walked one and surrendered just one extra-base hit — an RBI double to Nick Markakis in the third inning. Angels 1, Nationals 0

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Dan Haren pitched two-hit ball through 7 1-3 innings and the

Los Angeles Angels beat the Washington Nationals 1-0 Wednesday to sweep past Davey Johnson’s new team. The 68-year-old Johnson took over the Nationals this week, returning as a major league manager for the first time since 2000. Washington had won 13 of 15 going into the series at Anaheim. Reds 4, Rays 3

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Ryan Hanigan hit a three-run homer off James Shields and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Wednesday. Hanigan connected with two out in the fourth for his first homer since going deep twice April 3 against Milwaukee. Braves 5, Mariners 3

SEATTLE — Freddie Freeman knocked around Felix Hernandez for three hits and two RBIs, and Atlanta completed an impressive threegame sweep that included victories over the Mariners’ best starting pitchers. The Braves won for the eighth time in 10 games and picked up their 25th road victory of the season. They handed losses to Hernandez, rookie star Michael Pineda and Erik Bedard during their rare trip to Seattle. Indians 6, Diamondbacks 2

PHOENIX — Carlos Carrasco pitched seven solid innings to lead Cleveland to the victory in the rubber game of the interleague series. Orlando Cabrera, who delivered the deciding home run in the series opener, had a season-high four hits. He doubled, scored twice and drove in a run as the Indians won for just the third time in nine games. Twins 1, Dodgers 0

MINNEAPOLIS — Scott Baker struck out nine while pitching neatly into the eighth inning and Ben Revere had two hits to help Minnesota get the win. Baker (6-5) allowed six hits and walked one in 7 1-3 innings, dropping his ERA to 3.15 as the Twins bounced back from a 15-0 drubbing on Monday night to take two of three in the series. Padres 4, Royals 1

SAN DIEGO — Rookie Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run single, Tim Stauffer won consecutive starts for the first time this year and San Diego completed its first sweep this season. The Padres scored four unearned runs with two outs in the third inning thanks to third baseman Mike Moustakas’ error on a sun ball. Rangers 3, Astros 2.

HOUSTON — Ian Kinsler homered twice for the first time in almost two years and Colby Lewis had another solid start to lead the Texas Rangers to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. Kinsler hit a leadoff homer and also went deep in his next at-bat in the third inning to help Texas to an early 3-0 lead. It was the eighth multi-home run game of his career and his first since August 2009 against the Yankees. Cubs 2, Giants 1

CHICAGO — Pinch-hitter Aramis Ramirez singled to drive in the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and the Chicago Cubs beat San Francisco 2-1 on Wednesday night to end the Giants’ seven-game winning streak. Sergio Romo (3-1) gave up an infield single to leadoff batter Tony Campana, who moved to second on Reed Johnson’s sacrifice. After a groundout moved him to third, Ramirez hit an 0-2 pitch to left to win it.

Norfolk’s Ryan Adams hit it to the right-center field wall to score Josh Bell from second base with the game-winning run. The run spoiled a three-pitcher performance in which Lance Pendleton, George Kontos and Schmidt worked fairly economically, giving up 11 hits but only one run until Adams ended things. All three are relief pitchers by trade, though Pendleton has been pushed into the starting rotation for a club that has seven pitchers on the disabled list. “Right now we need him in there,” Miley said of Pendleton, who worked on a restricted pitch count in his second start of this trip, the Yankees’ longest of the season.

PITTSBURGH — The Penguins have offered former NHL MVP Jaromir Jagr a one-year contract, and expected to hear a decision from Jagr’s agent on Wednesday. Jagr, 39, was a Pittsburgh draft pick in 1990, and helped lead the Penguins to two Stanley Cup championships. The franchise’s hope is that he accept the offer, play at least one season in Pittsburgh, and then retire with the team he started with. The deal is worth a reported $2 million. Jagr, who played 17 seasons in the NHL with the Penguins, Capitals and Rangers, has played the past three years in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League. The 6foot-3, 243-pound forward has 1,599 career points in the NHL, to go along with the 1999 Hart Trophy for the league MVP. He was a Hart finalist five other times, and is an eight-time All-Star. Jagr’s agent is former NHL player Petr Svoboda. On Monday, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma addressed the media on several topics, including Jagr. “I’ve been on record a few times with the media about the attributes of Jaromir Jagr, (and

Pittsburgh, playing without injured stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, then blew a 3-1 series lead to Tampa Bay, and was eliminated in Round 1. “If Jaromir Jagr hypothetically were to fit in, I don’t think we’d have to change everything drastically for him to able to fit in,” Bylsma said. “If you watched Jaromir play in the World Championships, his play down low (was) outstanding. We’re a team that wants to play in the offensive zone. There’s a speed part to our game, but it really lies largely in playing in the offensive zone and wearing teams down. “I don’t think he has missed much of a beat in that regard to his game. Hypothetically speaking, that’s where I see him fitting in.” Jagr, a Czech native, won an Olympic gold medal in1998 and a bronze in 2006. He also won two Ice Hockey World Championships in 2005 and 2010. He has already played in 806 games in a Penguins uniform.

Rangers part with captain after 4 years

Derby winner out for year

By IRA PODELL AP Hockey Writer

NEW YORK — The Rangers bought out the final year of captain Chris Drury’s contract on Wednesday, making the veteran forward an unrestricted free agent after four seasons in New York. The move announced Wednesday will give the Rangers some salary cap relief for the upcoming season and could help them sign long-coveted Dallas Stars center Brad Richards, who is expected to be the best available player in the free agent market that opens Friday. “Chris is a consummate professional, a tremendous competitor and an even better person,” Rangers general manager Glen Sather said in a statement. “He gave his heart and soul to the Rangers organization in his time here and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom has a more serious leg injury that will require surgery, and the colt won’t race again this year. The colt’s ownership, Team Valor International, said in a statement Wednesday that a second set of X-rays has revealed Animal Kingdom has a slab fracture in his left hind leg just above the small fracture to the cannon bone found two weeks ago.

Animal Kingdom will have a screw inserted to compress the fracture during surgery on Thursday at New Bolton Research Center in Kennett Square, Pa. The colt will then return to his home at Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, Md., for 90 days of rehab. Team Valor says Animal Kingdom will be out of training for three months, with the goal of returning for the Dubai World Cup in late March.

Goodell, Smith discuss labor with rookies Players union interprets the joint appearance in Florida as positive. By STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer

SARASOTA, Fla. — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and players’ union chief DeMaurice Smith took questions Wednesday at a symposium for NFL rookies, who wanted to know the same thing as everyone else unhappy about the league’s labor dispute. When is it going to end? Goodell and Smith didn’t say. But the union took their joint appearance as a positive sign. “That’s really the significance of this,” NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah said. “There’s a lockout happening now, but we’ve got to look forward and consider the necessity to have a positive working relationship with the league.” The commissioner and his counter-

part in negotiations met in Minneapolis before flying together to Sarasota on Tuesday night. After a joint breakfast Wednesday, they talked for an hour with 155 rookies. “We were taking a break (from negotiations) because we felt it was important to be down here with the players,” Goodell said. “This is an important few days. We’re going to get back to work.” He then climbed into the back seat of an SUV alongside Smith, and they were soon flying back to Minnesota. Talks are scheduled there through Friday, raising hopes a new collective bargaining agreement can be worked out so the season can proceed as planned, with training camps scheduled to open in about three weeks. The fifth set of “secret” negotiations involve Goodell, Smith and their staffs, but no owners or players. Such highlevel meetings have been key to previous labor agreements, particularly when the late Gene Upshaw ran the

players’ association and Paul Tagliabue was commissioner. Goodell and Smith did not seem to have the same kind of rapport early in the negotiations, but they’ve been spending more time together in recent

weeks. “It’s big for them to come together. I thought that was pretty cool,” said Vikings rookie quarterback Christian Ponder, one of 23 first-round picks attending the symposium. “It looks like they

have a pretty good relationship.” Smith said both sides are “continuing to work hard” to end the fourmonth-old lockout, which has put the 2011 season in jeopardy. He called the question-and-answer session with rookies “important to ensure our young men appreciated how important we think these few days are. I’m thrilled Roger could come down with us and talk to the rookies in a very good, direct way.” Atallah said a lot of the questions from players were related to the lockout. He said Goodell and Smith answered as best they could given a court order to maintain confidentiality about the negotiations. “It was important that the players see this is not personal,” Atallah said. “It was important that the players see that (Goodell and Smith) can work through their differences in a constructive way, and that hopefully sooner rather than later they’ll be playing football.”

Cheney comes up big in debut Rookie makes presence felt by leading U.S. to shutout victory over North Korea.

By McClatchy-Tribune

HEIDELBERG, Germany — When 11-year-old Lauren Cheney and her teammates went to watch the United States play Nigeria at the 1999 World Cup, they brought along playbooks so they could write down what they would do when it was their turn on soccer’s biggest stage. Hard to imagine they drew it up any better than what Cheney “This is did Tuesday. what we Cheney live to do. scored in her first World Cup We play appearance, because of giving the UnitStates its this tour- ed first goal of the nament, tournament turning because of and what had been this an uncomfortably tight game stage.” into the kind of Lauren Cheney confident and Member of U.S. creative perWorld Cup team formance that has made the U.S. the world’s most dominant team the last two decades. With their 2-0 victory over North Korea, the Americans are atop Group C and could book a spot in the quarterfinals as early as Saturday. “This is what we live to do,” Cheney said Wednesday. “We play because of this tournament, because of this stage.” A latecomer to the U.S. national team — she started with the U-20 team instead of working her way up through the youth squads as so many players do — Cheney’s big break came in 2008. After helping the Americans qualify for the Beijing Olympics, the Indianapolis native was named an alternate. Then in the last game before the U.S. left for Beijing, Abby Wambach broke her leg. “I actually wouldn’t watch the

BERLIN — Brazil began its campaign for a first world women’s title with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Australia while Norway grabbed a late 1-0 win over Equatorial Guinea at the World Cup in Germany on Wednesday. Brazil, losing finalist in 2007, struggled for long spells before Rosana finished well in the 54th minute to give the South Americans the edge in the Group D game in Moenchengladbach. Cristiane was the provider with some neat work on the edge of the area, heading the ball on to Rosana who swiveled and hit a left-foot half-volley past Melissa Barbieri in the Australia goal. Australia came close to snatching a stoppage time equalizer, but the Brazilians managed to scramble the ball away following a corner. “We have a strong team, I think we have seen that,” said Rosana. “We played well and our girls defended well, and now we will fight to the end.” Australia coach Tom Sermanni said: “I am disappointed, but we achieved a lot, showed a lot of quality and almost got something at the end. Norway also was unconvincing in a Group D game in Augsburg, which was settled by Emilie Haavi six minutes from time with a shot into the roof of the net after keeper Miriam could only get her fingertips to a low cross from the right from Larsen Kaurin.

game. I would listen to it, but I didn’t want to watch completely because I was still a little torn,” Cheney said. “But my dad was watching and he said, ’Oh my gosh, Lauren, Abby just got hurt. It’s bad.’ ’I said, ’Oh, she’s dramatic. She’s fine, totally fine.”’ Ten minutes later, Cheney’s phone rang. It was Wambach, calling from the ambulance to say Cheney needed to start packing. “She said she knew that I could do it. And that I deserved it,” Cheney said. “To have Abby tell me she thought I belonged there, it made me feel comfortable going in.” Her role in Beijing would be much different than she was used to, however. At UCLA, she was a star. She had led the Pac-10 in

points and goals as a freshman, and finished second in voting for the Hermann Trophy — soccer’s equivalent of the Heisman — as a sophomore. Her name was a given in the starting lineup, and everyone knew she’d be getting the ball. In Beijing, Cheney would be a role player. NBC wouldn’t be doing a sappy, pre-game feature on her. She’d be coming off the bench — if she got in a game at all. “The ’08 experience, it humbled me completely,” Cheney said. “I wasn’t going to be star, I wasn’t going to be even remotely close to a starter. But I could encourage everybody else. I could

vered from an Achilles injury, most of her appearances have come off the bench. Rather than moping about a supporting role, Cheney relishes the education it’s given her. “I actually embraced that role because I get to figure out what’s going on in the game first before I go in. So when I go in, I know exactly what I need to do and how I can switch the game,” she said. “Starting is extremely different. You have to be ready, have to have good warmup, do everything right from the beginning. Not only that, you have to figure it out on the field.”

make them better players just by being there. That was the first time I’d ever really done that. I learned how to be a teammate instead of just playing. “It taught me how to work even harder, too,” she added. “You want to work harder for your teammates. You want them to be the best they are when they’re starting, when they’re playing.” The lessons Cheney learned in Beijing have stayed with her, even as she’s become an increasingly important part of the U.S. team.

Sides far apart headed into deadline day Negotiators are set to meet again as salaries and revenues remain the primary issues.

By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — The NBA is headed to deadline day, with perhaps one last chance to avoid a lockout. Negotiators for owners and

players will meet today, about 12 hours before the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement and seemingly nowhere close to a deal. The sides remain far apart on just about every major issue, from salaries to the salary cap, revenues to revenue sharing. After meeting twice a week for most of the month, this is the only session scheduled this week. The two sides could continue

bargaining past the deadline, but that probably requires owners to see evidence of the gap narrowing today Otherwise, they could lock out the players for the first time since the 1998-99 season was reduced to 50 games, though Commissioner David Stern has refused to say what would happen if a deal is not done today. There may not be much to discuss. Players declined to offer a

new economic proposal in the most recent meeting Friday, and they may still feel their previous offer to reduce their salaries by $500 million over five years is going far enough. Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said the league didn’t know if the players would make another proposal. Both sides have moved, but not nearly far enough for the other.

and the Philadelphia area. Its record also includes a victory over a varsity team from the Lackawanna League. “We’ve put together a very successful team,” said Healey, who has coached most of the nine players on the roster in AAU ball since they were sixth graders. According to Healey, the team has excellent chemistry and has consistently improved. And it has exceptional talent. “When these kids were sixth graders, they were good,” Healey said. “Last year they turned the corner, and now they seem to be hitting their best stride.” The squad consists entirely of

season in salaries and benefits. Owners have dropped their insistence that no contracts could be fully guaranteed, an issue the players strongly opposed. Owners still want a reduction in the players’ guarantee of 57 percent of basketball revenues. Players said their latest proposal would have taken them down to 54.3, but say the league’s offer would have them down to around 40 percent.

Defending champion Nadal will play Murray, who hopes to give Britain its first men’s title at the All England Club in 75 years. Although Fish thought Nadal moved well against him and showed no sign of injury, the 10time major champion said: “My foot is not fine. But we are in quarterfinals of Wimbledon. Is an emergency, so I had to play.” Nadal is on a 19-match winning streak at the grass-court Grand Slam, and is 31-2 since the start of the 2006 tournament; both losses were against Federer in finals.

Roger Federer leaves the court after Jo-Wilfried Tsonga scored a come-from-behind quarterfinals victory, 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4, at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

cluding a victory in last year’s Wimbledon semifinals. “You get pushed more and more as the rounds go on,” said Murray, a three-time major runner-up. “I’m sure in the next round, I’m going to get pushed even harder, and I’m going to have to up my game again.” Federer, meanwhile, remains one Wimbledon trophy short of the men’s record of seven, shared by Pete Sampras and Willie Renshaw, whose titles came in the 1880s. “I thought my game was plenty good enough this year to win the tournament,” Federer said. “Unfortunately, there’s only one that can win it, and the rest go home empty-handed. That’s what happened to me today. Jo played an amazing match.” That certainly is true. Tsonga lost the first game he served — and then didn’t face a break point the rest of the way.

He finished with an 18-17 edge in aces and a 63-57 edge in total winners. And Tsonga managed to break Federer’s serve once in each of the last three sets. Most impressive of all, Tsonga hung in there even after falling so far behind. “I was feeling really strong because I never — how you say that? — panic. I was, all the time, really focused,” Tsonga said. “I was not scared on big points.” Tsonga, 26, reached the 2008 Australian Open final before losing to Djokovic, who won that tournament again this year. But what appeared to be a rapid rise for Tsonga stalled, in part because of injuries to both knees. He split with his coach in April and has yet to hire another. What Tsonga does not lack at the moment is self-belief. Asked if he thinks he could win Wimbledon this year, Tsonga replied: “Um, why not?”

Wednesday’s match was only his fifth career major quarterfinal; Federer has been at least that far at each of the past 29 Grand Slam tournaments. But after getting to the semifinals at a record 23 consecutive majors, Federer now has lost in the quarterfinals at three of the past five. The quality was high, the exchanges entertaining. According to the official statistics, 120 points ended on winners by one man or the other — and only 33 ended on unforced errors. Tsonga had started turning things around by ripping a forehand passing winner to break Federer for the first time and take a 2-1 lead in the third set. Tsonga broke to 2-1 in the fourth with another forehand winner, then jogged to the sideline with his right fist aloft. The final break came in the fifth set’s opening game, when Federer put a forehand into the net.

players from Luzerne County. All of them are expected to play at the varsity level in the Wyoming Valley Conference next season, except for Pittston resident Erin Schmidt, who will attend Scranton Prep. Rock Solid is led by 5-foot-8 forward Alexis Lewis (Wyoming Valley West), who scored a season-high 28 points in one game, and is the team’s leading scorer. “Alexis is a great player,” Healey said. “She can do it all – post up, shoot threes and is a great shot blocker. She handles the ball well and has a superb all-around game.” An illustration of the team’s strength, however, is the fact that it’s well-balanced, Healey said. “We don’t have a starting five. We rotate players, and when Alexis sits out of the rotation,

our kids are confident they can win without her.” Rock Solid has three standout guards in Lydia Lawson (Good Shepherd Academy), Talia Szatkowski (Dallas) and Allie Barber (Pittston Area). “Lydia has the best moves of a guard that you’ve ever seen,” Healey said. “She’s our only player who’s in the seventh grade, and she’s amazing. She has a quick move to the basket and she’ll freeze defenders in transition and go by them.” Szatkowski specializes in court savvy. “She thinks the game,” Healey said. “Her basketball knowledge is unbelievable. She has a clock in her head. If she gets a steal and goes in for a layup, she knows exactly how much time is on the clock.” Barber already has Healey

looking forward to next season, when she’ll team up with returning scorer Mia Hopkins at Pittston Area. “Allie is as quick as lightning,” Healey said. “She’s intense, handles the ball well and is a great defender.” Other team members include Alana Wilson (St. Jude’s/Holy Redeemer), Gabrielle Volpetti (Dallas), Francesca Matriccino (Hazleton) and McKenzie Yori (Hazleton). Rock Solid opens play against Fairfax, Va., in the double-elimination tournament. Healey isn’t making any predications but is confident the team will make a good showing. “I just know we have fantastic players,” Healey said. “We’re so fast that other players can’t keep up with us at times.”

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Erik Compton is among the elite on the PGA Tour this week at the AT&T National, even though he has been in a league of his own for about as long as he’s been playing golf. Compton is in the same group with Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan for the first two days at Aronimink. One of them is a former U.S. Open champion who rose as high as No. 2 in the world. Another played in the Ryder Cup and won a World Golf Championship last year. And the third? “Everybody knows I’m the guy with two hearts,” Compton said. It’s a story that has been told for the last three years, ever since Compton, 31, again defied logic, if not death, by getting a second heart transplant and returning five months later to get through the first stage of Q-school. And it keeps getting more amazing. Compton shot a 65 on Sunday in the final round of the Mexican Open and won the Nationwide Tour event, moving him up to No. 2 on the money list and all but assuring he will finish among the top 25 this year and earn his card on the PGA Tour. His identity won’t change. He will always be the guy who after his second transplant said, “I’ve been dead. Twice.” Compton wouldn’t have it any other way. The attention he receives whenever he plays allows him to spread the word on organ transplants, such as the heart he received when he was 12, and the

second heart he was given on May 20, 2008. “The doctors are shocked and people in the transplant world are shocked,” Compton said. “I’m shocked because I always said I would be on tour and play, but now it’s a reality. My dream is finally coming true, and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. I have a new life and I have a bright future, and it’s just ... I mean, it’s just crazy. I can’t even explain it.” It’s even harder to fathom for those who have seen this story unfold. Charlie DeLucca, head of the Dade Amateur Golf Association in Miami, still remembers when Compton showed up to play and his parents asked if he could take a pull cart. DeLucca was skeptical, unaware that the boy had been diagnosed at age 9 with cardiomyopathy, an enlarging of the heart that hinders its ability to pump blood. The first transplant occurred a few years later, and DeLucca figured he’d never see him again. Compton, as he has done his entire life, proved otherwise.

WILKES-BARRE – Wilkes University head coach Jerry Rickrode has announced that Rodney Hill, an incoming freshman from Pikesville, Md., has joined the men’s basketball recruiting class for the upcoming 2011-12 season. Hill, a 6-foot-8 center who played scholastically at The Park School of Baltimore, contributed on both ends of the floor as a senior, averaging 14 points, 12 boards and seven blocks per game. “This young man has a great upside,” said Rickrode. “His presence will be felt at the defensive

Woods to pitch heat rub in Japan Bethpage Black gets playoff Tiger signs three-year deal that is his first endorsement since sex scandal in 2009.

The Associated Press

By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

NAGOYA, Japan — Tiger Woods has signed a three-year deal to promote a Japanese pain reliever, his first endorsement since he was caught in a sex scandal toward the end of 2009. The deal with Kowa Company Ltd. is geared only toward the market in Japan. Woods already has filmed commercials for “Vantelin Kowa,” a heat rub used to relieve muscle and joint pain. The commercial is to be shown in Japan starting next month. “When looking for a person for a new TV commercial for the Vantelin Kowa series, Kowa determined that Tiger Woods, with his No. 1 accomplishment as a golfer and his overwhelming presence, matches the promotional direction of the Vantelin Kowa series,” the company said in a press release. “And we asked Mr. Woods for his cooperation in our new TV commercial.”

Taking a PGA Tour event likely means the end — at least for some time — on the U.S. Open returning to Bethpage. Ridgewood was a popular spot in 2008 and last year, while The Barclays goes to Plainfield in August for the first time. Almost as curious as Bethpage Black was the return to Liberty National, which offers spectacular views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Few players had great things to say publicly, and jokes were running rampant in private. Finchem said the course was going through some changes. “I think that over my years here, there have been very few times where we’ve played a golf course for the first time that we don’t get a lot of input on what it ought be, particularly when you play a new course,” Finchem said. “Liberty was obviously brand new when we played it. We got a lot of suggestions.” He said the course has made “a few adjustments” that he referred to as subtle.

AT&T and Gatorade dropping him as a sponsor, and Gillette deciding not to renew its deal. “I’m not looking at this as his first deal, or a second deal,” Steinberg said Wednesday. “I look at this as showing he’s a global attraction. I expect to have some other announcements by the balance of the year.”

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. — Bethpage Black is back on golf’s landscape, this time as the first FedEx Cup playoff event. The PGA Tour announced Wednesday that Barclays has signed a four-year extension as title sponsor through 2016, and that its tournament would be played at Bethpage Black in 2012 and 2016. Bethpage Black, a state-owned golf course on Long Island, hosted the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open. The Barclays is the first of four playoff events during the chase for the $10 million FedEx Cup prize, featuring a 125-man field. The tour also said that Liberty National, panned by several players when it held the tournament in 2009, would be back in

The courses to be playing at used are Bethpage Ridgewood (2014) and Black is in Plainfield and of it(2015), both self spein New Jersey. “We’re ex- cial.” cited about Tim Finchem that rotation,” PGA Tour PGA Tour Commissioner Commissioner Tim Finchem said. “Obviously, playing at Bethpage Black is in and of itself special. But also the concept over the last years was to try to move The Barclays around the metropolitan area ... and a rotation that moves us over from New Jersey to Long Island for these next few years will work nicely.” Tiger Woods won the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black in 2002, and Lucas Glover won his U.S. Open in 2009 during a tournament that lasted five days because of the rain.

A fine example of just how nice our weather can be in summer is evident today. Once again, an active breeze will deliver very low humidity and serve to keep the sky mostly clear. If only I had this day off because the view out the window will be very tempting to want to be outdoors. Under a ridge of high pressure, skies will remain clear tonight, and in some outlying areas readings will drop to the upper 40s! There is absolutely no chance for rain tomorrow and probably on Saturday as well, and by then much warmer air will have arrived. A front approaching Sunday could bring a storm, and more sunshine is likely on Independence Day! - Tom Clark

Anyone who is, or was, a consistent summercamp attendee knows the excitement that comes from the prospect of seeing old friends when the calendar flips to camp time once more. You know, those kids you spent all that free time with but only had the chance to see annually. Well, they aren’t kids anymore, and this is no ordinary summer camp, but for Barbara, 69, and John Kolchin, 80, of Dallas Township, the joy of reconnecting still exists when the Road Scholar program at Misericordia University rolls around. “It’s like a reunion,” Barbara said. “We’ve got friends from out of state that we met the first year we started, and we always look forward to seeing them again that week.” Road Scholar, previously known as Elderhostel, is an international program that promotes lifelong learning for those 50 or older. This is the 32nd year Misericordia is hosting the weeklong series, and it will take place from July 17 to the 23. The Kolchins have attended Road Scholar since 2008, the summer after they moved to the area from Somerset County, N.J. “Education is very important to the two of us,” Barbara said. “We’re first-generation Americans, our parents were immigrants, and they really stressed how important education was to us.” John is a former school superintendent, and

Cubicle jockeys can learn cowboy skills at one of the weeklong sessions held in September, October and November ($2,250). The days are packed with riding, roping, horseshoeing and more riding. Students also learn about ranch operation, cattle breeds, cattle diseases, shipping, pasture rotation and more. Yes, there are bunkhouses. “We’ve been at it since 1986,” said Lori Bridwell, who runs the camp. “Most of the people who sign up, 80 percent, come just once. But we do have people who come back. Some come back several times. We had a guy come three times last year alone. He’s from New Jersey.” The first two days are spent at Lorill Equestrian Center in Scottsdale, then the scene shifts to a working cattle ranch (the location varies by session). The Cowboy College provides horses, saddles and gear, though students can bring their own, provided they meet the camp’s safety standards. And how many schools include a cowboy hat, chaps and a harmonica on the list of items for students to bring. Eat prairie dust, Harvard.

This is not a week for wimps. Warns the website: “This is very hard work and can be very dangerous to both you and your mount. You must be in good health. If you are injured, help is very far away. However, we do carry a cellular phone for major emergencies.” Further details are at cowboycollege.com. Of course, not everyone gets excited about saddle sores. There are other specialized adult-oriented camps to choose from:

CHICAGO — Starting a career, getting married, becoming a parent: One of these adulthood milestones is not like the others. Scientists have long studied how much each of these major life events makes us happy and emotionally healthy in the long-term, and — maybe surprising — it’s well-understood that parenthood comes up short. As much as we might want to believe otherwise, parents generally aren’t as happy as those without children. But a new study suggests that while young parents might be stressed and depressed compared to their peers without children, older parents are happier than their childless counterparts. This conclusion might seem obvious at first (as children age and leave home, parental responsibilities lighten, and of course there is the possibility of grandchildren). But consider this: Before the study, published in the March issue of Population and Development Review, almost all research about parenthood has painted a fairly bleak picture: strained marriages, higher rates of depression and stress. Lots and lots of stress. A new picture is emerging, however. Rachel Margolis is co-author of the study, titled “A Global Perspective on Happiness and Fertility,” and a Ph.D. candidate in demography and sociology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She and co-author Mikko Myrskyla examined survey data taken between 1981 and 2005 from more than 200,000 respondents in 86 countries. Respondents were asked, among other things, about their age, income, health, relationship status and the number of children they had. They also were asked how happy they were, with options ranging from “very happy” to “not at all happy.” They found that for moms and dads younger than 30, happiness decreases the more children one has. But once parents reach age 40, the effect is reversed, as long as the parent has fewer than four kids. And after age 50, it doesn’t matter how many kids they have — parents are happier than their childless peers. This effect was seen regardless of whether the parents were rich or poor, married or unmarried, male or female, or healthy or sick. “One of the things that we’re finding is that in most social contexts across the world, younger parents are just a bit less happy,” Margolis said. “But the bigger point is that these things are short-lived. They aren’t forever.” Simple economics might seem like an easy explanation for this effect. When children are young, they are a big financial burden, and when they are grown, they often become assets by taking care of aging parents. This is most true in countries where there is little government welfare for young parents and the elderly. So Margolis and Myrskyla also grouped the data by “welfare regime;” basically, whether the respondent lived in a country like Norway, which offers parents lots of government-sponsored support, or a country like the United States, which offers relatively little support to parents. They found that, regardless of where they lived, parents younger than 30 were less happy than those without children. But in countries like Norway, the difference in happiness was much smaller; parents were still less happy, but not by much. These results don’t mean that normal, cheerful Americans are suddenly overcome by despair the moment they reproduce. Sixty percent of the people in Margolis’s survey described themselves as “pretty happy” or “very happy” whether they were parents or not. The difference in happiness between younger parents and non-parents is small, but it is comparable to, for example, the difference in happiness between sick people and healthy people. But even if the difference is small, that doesn’t mean it should be ignored, said Robin Simon, professor of sociology at Wake Forest University. Simon studies parenthood and well-being, and she said research like this is an important catalyst to start to change the way we conceptualize parenthood, so that stressedout moms and dads don’t feel like failures. As a mother, she felt comforted after her own research showed how common emotional distress is among parents. “Kids are messy. They have health problems, behavior issues, homework problems. But our culture tells us, ‘This should make me happy.’ And yet, we’re not happy,” Simon said. “For me, it was liberating to do this research because I’m like, gee, this is stressful for everybody. I’m not alone.”

Fifth-grade students at Dr. Kistler Elementary School, Wilkes-Barre, recently completed a multi-phase watershed field tour project under the direction of elementary science coordinator Michael Corcoran and a team of professionals from the Eastern Pennsylvania Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation (EPCAMR).

Testing included water quality monitoring, habitat identification, sampling and assessment. The program coincided with the students’ in class curriculum and Pennsylvania State Standards for elementary science. Participating teachers included Matt McHenry, Cindy Craig, Steve Sedon, Amy Sullivan, Sharon Detwiler and Doreen Lavan. Some of the participants, clockwise from top left, are Joe Lewis, Jenna Middleton, Marie Frankiewicz, Tariq Rood and Wren Dugan, EPCAMR instructor.

Readers’ gift ideas for lingerie shower are naughty as well as nice Dear Readers: On May 18, I printed a letter from a young woman who had been invited to a friend’s lingerie shower. “Bringing a Blender in Montana” was uncomfortable with the idea of purchasing intimate apparel for the bride-to-be, so I suggested she bring a “high-necked flannel nightgown.” When I asked you readers to offer other gift suggestions, you responded with an avalanche of terrific responses. Thanks to all for your clever suggestions. Read on: Dear Abby: One of the most unique bridal shower gifts I received was a set of pillowcases. Both cases had

DEAR ABBY ADVICE one side that read “YES” in big red letters. The reverse side of the bride’s case said, “Not tonight, I have a headache.” The other side of the groom’s case read, “I have the aspirin.” — Pillow Talk 26 Years Later Dear Abby: For my granddaughter’s lingerie shower, I gave her a generous check, a pair of men’s dress socks and a note saying the socks were to replace the ones she’d knock off him when he saw her in one of her beautiful nightgowns. — Still Knockin’ His Socks Off

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I was given a gift basket, which included body lotion, bath salts, candles, chocolates and a romantic DVD. I enjoyed the gift basket more than the lingerie. — Judy in Rawlins, Wyo. Dear Abby: We had a “useful utensil party” for my future sister-in-law. I gave her a nutcracker. — Debbie in Albion, Calif. Dear Abby: When I attended my granddaughter’s bridal shower, I wrapped some fig leaves with her gift and joked about her wearing them in case her closet ran short. She responded with, “Gramma!” It surprised her, but it brought a

lot of laughs. — Gramma On the West Coast

This is all done in FUN! — Having a Good Time in the East

Dear Abby: Lovely camisoles or slips, special mesh bags for washing fine items, scented lingerie detergent or pretty new slippers are all acceptable and appreciated gifts for starting married life. — Dianne in Carlisle, Pa.

Dear Abby: My in-laws were married in 1940. She was 17; he was 19. For her shower, my mother-inlaw received a beautiful full-length nightgown with fur trim around the bottom added by the giver. The card read: “To keep your neck warm.” — Irene in Elida, Ohio

Dear Abby: As a gag gift, she could give them a bottle of aspirin and some good reading material ... — Been There in Illinois Dear Abby: Four silk scarves, a leather whip and a can of whipped cream.

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are many different ways to handle a tricky situation, though your prior conditioning may bring only one to mind. So go deeper. Ask “what else?” and let the brainstorming begin. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Telling someone who is frustrated to calm down is like telling a scared person to be brave — a fine suggestion that’s likely to be met with big-time resistance. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The smallest situation to the biggest, now is the time to make a plan for how you want to resolve each one and write those plans down. Tomorrow’s moon will bring luck to all who do the preliminary work. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone will ask you a question that, in some subtle way, encourages you to commit to a position. Consider that it may not benefit you to take a position or even answer at all. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Though you may turn to the world of celebrity as a fun escape, be careful not to wish to have the lives of others. Your own world is more enjoyable in so many ways and is definitely better for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just as a loving parent will seek outside expertise to develop a child’s abilities or help a child get healthier, you may need some outside help to solve a current problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you accept information that supports your point of view and reject information that doesn’t, you are doing what is only natural

and human. That doesn’t make it right, though. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even the most balanced parts of your life are not entirely under your control — something to admit, accept and possibly even enjoy now that the surprises are likely to please you greatly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll do quite a lot with your day, but is it enough? That’s the question that will stick with you even after you’ve closed your eyes to go to sleep, and your ambitions will fill your dreams. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will master the art of being easygoing. You can be high maintenance when you think it’s appropriate. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Relax. Recharging your brain is as important as any of the other activities you do to maintain your health and well-being. It’s as vital as brushing your teeth, eating nutritious food or taking a shower. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The one who puts you on the defensive has something to teach you. It’s not so easy to find the lesson when you’re in the middle of the fight, but later you can look back and see it very clearly. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 30). You’ll happily do more of what you’re best at this year. You’ll harmoniously coexist with loved ones for the vast majority of the time. October brings a financial opportunity, and you’ll be able to help family with your new resources, too. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 24, 35 and 17.

Midwest manufacturing

The Chicago Purchasing Managers Index will give economists and investors a look at how manufacturing fared in the Midwest during June. The Chicago report is taking on particular importance this month, because of the string of reports that have pointed to slower output at the nation’s factories during the spring. The report is also seen as preview of the national report on manufacturing scheduled for Friday from the Institute for Supply Ford Assembly Plant in Wayne, Mich. Management.

Third up day for stocks

Stocks closed higher for the third day in a row Wednesday after Greece cleared a hurdle toward getting more emergency loans. Financial stocks rose after Bank of America reached a settlement with investors over failed mortgage securities. Financial companies in the S&P 500 rose 2.1 percent after Bank of America Corp. reached a settlement with investors over claims it sold them bad loans. The bank’s stock rose 3 percent Wednesday, but is still down 24 percent over the past year.Bank stocks also got a lift from news that the Federal Reserve plans to limit the fees banks can charge retailers for swiping debit cards to 21 cents. That’s higher than the 12 cents the Fed first proposed. Energy stocks rose more than 1 percent after oil prices rose above $95 on a report that U.S. crude supplies fell last week. The drop suggests demand for oil might be rising.

On top of an $8.5 billion payout to 22 institutional investors, the $14 billion includes $5.5 billion to cover other demands by holders of mortgage securities. Bank of America says it will report a second-quarter loss of $8.6 billion to $9.1 billion after recording $6.4 billion in additional mortgage-related charges, including a $2.6 billion write-off of its Countrywide investment.

of Countrywide mortgage securities would cost it an additional $14 billion. That amount, to be recorded in Bank of America’s second-quarter earnings, is just the latest in a long string of painful payouts stemming from the takeover of Countrywide, the Calabasas, Calif., lender that once was the nation’s largest writer of mortgages — many of them of the subprime variety.

LOS ANGELES — If Countrywide Financial co-founder Angelo Mozilo had sold former Bank of America boss Ken Lewis a kitchen sink, maybe they could have tossed that in there too. Bank of America, which under Lewis bought Countrywide in 2008 for stock then worth $2.5 billion, said in a statement Wednesday that settling claims by holders

Pending home sales rise

The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that its index of sales agreements for previously occupied homes rose 8.2 percent last month, to a reading of 88.8. The increase followed April’s seven-month low of 82.1. A reading of 100 is considered healthy by economists. The last time the index reached that level was in April 2010, the final month when buyers could qualify for a federal tax credit. Signings are now 17 percent above June’s reading of 75.9, the lowest figure since the housing market went bust nearly four years ago. Contract signings are typically a reliable indicator of where the housing market is headed. That’s because there’s usually a one- to two-month lag between a sales contract and a completed deal.

Toyota recalls hybrid SUVs

Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it will recall about 82,200 hybrid SUVs in the U.S. due to computer boards with possible faulty wiring. Wednesday’s recall involves about 45,500 Highlander Hybrid and 36,700 Lexus Rx 400h vehicles from its 2006 and 2007 lines, the company’s U.S. subsidiary said in a press release. Toyota said the affected vehicles’ hybrid system has a computer board with inadequate soldering that could be damaged during high-load driving. If damage were to occur, the company said the vehicles would either continue to operate under reduced power for a short distance, or coast to a stop.

Metro unemployment rises

The unemployment rate increased in 210 metro areas in May, the Labor Department said Wednesday. It fell in 131 cities and remained unchanged in 37. That’s a sharp reversal from April, when unemployment rates dropped in more than 90 percent of metro areas. Nationwide, the unemployment rate ticked up in May to 9.1 percent and employers added just 54,000 net jobs. Employers added an average of 220,000 jobs per month in the previous three months.

The spaces formerly occupied by retail heavyweights including Circuit City, Linens ’n Things and Borders are now welcoming sellers of discounted designer jeans, used video games and surplus merchandise. Many of the new stores moving in trumpet terms such as “off-price,” “discount” and “value” in their slogans. Stores including Big Lots, Ross Dress

Budget-conscious consumers are still being careful about how many drinks they order in bars and restaurants, but they’re buying more wine, beer and liquor to take home. Constellation Brands’ fiscal firstquarter results are expected to show it’s selling more of its pricier wine labels including Clos du Bois and Ravenswood. The report is also expected to show the benefits of Constellation’s sale of 80percent stake in its struggling Australian and British wine businesses.

IMF urges U.S. debt limit action By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The International Monetary Fund warned U.S. lawmakers Wednesday that a failure to raise the nation’s borrowing limit would pose serious risks to the global economy and financial markets. The U.S. last month reached its $14.3 trillion borrowing limit. The U.S. Treasury has said that it can keep the country operating for a couple months by employing various bookkeeping maneuvers. But if Congress doesn’t raise the borrowing limit by Aug. 2, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has said the country will default on its debt. John Lipsky, acting managing director of the IMF, said a default “would have very serious and far-reaching consequences.” It would rattle markets and send interest rates soaring, making mortgages and other consumer loans more expensive. Lipsky expressed confidence that Congress will reach a deal before that happens. A sharp divide among lawmakers over how to rein in the federal budget deficit has kept Congress from raising the borrowing limit. Republicans want President Barack Obama and Democrats to agree on spending cuts equal to any increase in the borrowing limit. Democrats say the deficit-reduction deal must also include some tax increases. The IMF said enacting steep spending cuts or tax increases too quickly could hamper the U.S. recovery. It advocated raising the borrowing limit and implementing a long-term deficit-reduction strategy. President Obama on Wednesday said both Democrats and Republicans must be prepared to “take on their sacred cows” as part of the deficit-reduction negotiations. Republicans say they will not support any proposal that raises taxes. The U.S. economy will grow this year and next but at a weak pace, the IMF forecasts. The fund projects the economy will expand 2.5 percent this year and 2.7 percent in 2012. Consumers are still paying off debts, which will reduce their See DEBT, Page 3D

so desire. This could be big. Google has begun inviting people to test its new social media site, Google+. But this test site is no ugly prototype; it’s a fully featured, well-thought-out social environment, where users can view posts, photos and updates added by their friends. For the more clique conscious, or just those concerned with privacy, it offers “Circles,” a well thought out

NICK DELORENZO TECH TALK graphical alternative to Facebook’s sometimes bewildering array of privacy options. It integrates YouTube, Gmail, Google Voice, its new +1 search service, and more ... essentially its entire array of services is somehow implemented. And from my perspective, just as Google Search supplanted all of the old defunct search engines of yore, just as Gmail made Hotmail passé overnight, just as Google Voice made Skype suddenly seem a whole lot less cool, Google+ may turn Facebook into Friendster, or perhaps MySpace. I give Facebook credit. They’re big.

and YouTube, and Google Search, and suddenly, Facebook may start to seem a lot less relevant. Who knows. Maybe it will flop. But I doubt it. It’s too sleek, too functional, too Google-ish not to work once it hits prime time. Does the world have enough room for Google and Facebook? Do you have enough time to handle both? Maybe the two will play nicely, forming interfaces and integration that makes one just as good as the other, but I tend to doubt it. They have far too many conflicting interests for that to happen.

Hitting the wall?

A lot was looking right for the markets in April as the second quarter began. Employers were creating more jobs. The unemployment rate was falling. Investors stopped worrying that the March 11 earthquake in Japan might hurt U.S. companies. It all fell apart in May. The earthquake slowed manufacturing. The

job market weakened. Gas prices rose. Consumers spent less. Greece moved toward a possible default on its debt. The S&P 500 is down 1.4 percent for the quarter. It may have its first losing quarter since the second quarter of 2010. It has risen this week, but the economy is still shaky and stocks are expected

to stay volatile. Commodities also fell in response to the economy. Silver fell 28 percent the first two weeks of May. But Treasurys rose as investors sought safe places. Now they’re wondering what will happen in the third quarter, when the Federal Reserve is no longer buying Treasurys to support the economy.

Passage of Greek cuts met with violence

By ELENA BECATOROS and DEREK GATOPOULOS Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece — Greece fended off a bankruptcy that would have roiled global markets and threatened the future of the euro when lawmakers on Wednesday backed controversial austerity measures in the face of violent protests. More than 100 people were injured in riots. Investors cheered the bill — which aims to cut spending and raise taxes by (euro) 28 billion ($40 billion) and raise (euro) 50 billion ($71 billion) in privatizations over five years — but, in Athens, the mood was dark. In a haze of tear gas, protesters hurled anything they could find at riot police and tried to blockade the Parliament building. A Greek default would threaten the viability of the euro, the EU’s common currency, and send shock

waves through global markets similartothosethatkickedofftheglobal financial meltdown after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008. While world markets rose on the news that the bill passed, Greece is notyetoutofthewoods.Thebill— along with another that must be passed today on implementing the austerity package — will release the next (euro) 12 billion ($17 billion) installment of a (euro)110 billion ($157 billion) international bailout from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

But many Greeks complain they have already paid dearly in a year that has seen public sector salaries and pensions cut and unemployment rise to above 16 percent. “This is bad, the country will be soldforapieceofbread,”saidDimitris Kostopoulos, a 48-year-old insurer who was protesting Wednesday. “There were many other more appropriate alternatives to this. Parliament has once again betrayed us.” As lawmakers voted, stun grenades echoed across the square outside Parliament and acrid

clouds of tear gas and orange and green mist from smoke bombs and flares hung in the air. Several banks and storefronts were smashed, while a Socialist dissenter who backed the government at the last minute, Alexandros Athanassiadis, was briefly assaulted by protesters after leaving Parliament on foot. A general strike that began Tuesday also ground the country to a halt, grounding planes, docking ferries and stranding tourists during the busy summer season. Across Europe, officials hailed the vote as an act of “national responsibility” and urged Greek lawmakers to follow up with another positive vote today. “That’s really good news,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said when told of the outcome of the vote on her way out of an economic forum in Berlin. Germany is Greece’s biggest creditor.

That follows a similar action in January, when Bank of America Chief Executive Brian Moynihan chopped $2 billion off the value of Countrywide on the bank’s books. All told, the settlement covers the Charlotte, N.C., bank’s exposure to claims by holders of securities backed by 530 trusts stuffed with Countrywide mortgages with an original principal balance of $424 billion. “This is another important step we are taking in the interest of our shareholders to minimize theimpactoffutureeconomicuncertaintyandputlegacyissuesbehind us,” Moynihan said in a statement.

A major catalyst to the changing retail landscape has been attractive leasing deals. “These sites have been sitting empty for a couple of years, and so they are pretty cheap,” said Sherif Mityas, a partner in the retail practice of the consulting firm A.T.

The IMF’s forecast is below recent projections by the Federal Reserve. The Fed expects the economy will grow by as much as 3.3 percent next year. Many private forecasters, however, are more pessimistic and closer to the IMF’s view.

at a pretty good discount.” The owners of Merchants’ Village purchased the former Walmart, rather than leasing it. According to Luzerne County property records, Renda Antonaccio Holdings LLC paid $2.9 million for the building on 24 acres. The property became available because a new Walmart Supercenter opened a short distance away. According to the deed terms, the former Walmart can not be used as a grocery store, discount store, or pharmacy for 25 years. Meanwhile, a former Circuit City store in the Wilkes-Barre Commons shopping center has remained vacant since it close in 2009.
