JENKINS TWP. – It sounded like blasts from a double-barreled shotgun. Bang-bang. Then, before the crowd that assembled on River Road to watch the demolition could catch its breath and cheer, the steel trusses that held the old Eighth Street Bridge aloft for 111 years hit the Susquehanna. Well, half of them anyway. At 12:04 p.m. Thursday, demolition crews from the Pennsylva-

Some of the 85 residents who attended the meeting at the Northmoreland Township Fire Hall in Wyoming County asked questions about the pipeline and metering facility’s safety and why the company chose Northmoreland Township for its alternate location. Mike Dickinson, manager of operations and technical services for Williams Midstream Operations, said the continuing discussions in Dallas Township, where the company originally planned to build a metering facility, have caused the “timetable to really drag out,” and he hopes the site in Northmoreland Township

FRIDAY, JULY 8, 2011

Initial results of a new age of public school austerity are in: Four local districts cut preliminary budgets but still expect to spend more than last year; seven produced plans that spend less than last year. Yet despite all the slashing of expenses, nine districts raised taxes. And if you think next year will be easier, think again. After years of steady increases in state funding under former Gov. Ed Rendell, Luzerne County’s 11 school districts found themselves coping with Gov. Tom Corbett’s decision to slash

about $1 billion from the state’s funding of public school education. Debates were sharp and votes often narrowly divided as local school boards approved final budgets that cut employees, programs or both in response to decreased state support. A Times Leader review of budgets and tax rates in those final budgets shows that: • Collectively, county districts expect to spend $10 million less than last year, a 3.3 percent decrease. The biggest cut, by percentage, was 4.6 percent in Hanover Area. The biggest cut dollar-wise was $3.7 million in Hazleton Area.

INSIDE: Referendum changes challenge for districts, 9A.

• On average, property taxes rose by 3.1 percent, though that includes the two districts that kept taxes flat – Greater Nanticoke Area and Northwest Area. The biggest percentage increase, 7.6 percent, was in Crestwood – though it’s worth noting that district had the lowest tax rate in the county. • Four districts increased spending and taxes. Two cut spending and left taxes the same. Five districts cut spending and See TAXES, Page 9A

Gunman kills self; hostages safe in Mich. Suspect in shooting deaths of seven people leads police on high-speed chase. By TOM COYNE Associated Press

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Police Chief Kevin Belk says the man suspected in seven Michigan shooting deaths has killed himself and two hostages he was holding are safe. Belk said 34-year-old Rodrick Shonte Dantzler fatally shot himself inside a Grand Rapids home where he had been holding the hostages Thursday night. Dantzler had released a 53year-old female hostage unharmed earlier in the evening.

Two other hostages had remained in the home. A manhunt for Dantzler began after four people were found dead in one Grand Rapids home and three were found in another across town. Belk says the dead included two children. The frantic search included a high-speed chase through downtown Grand Rapids during which Belk says the suspect shot two other people. They did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Dantzler first opened fire in two Michigan homes Thursday, killing seven people before leading police on a high-speed chase through downtown Grand Rapids and taking two hostages in an-

other home, authorities said. Within hours, dozens of officers with guns drawn had cordoned off a neighborhood near a small lake in the northern part of the city and shut down nearby Interstate 96. “At this point, we don’t know the motive,” Belk said late Thursday, but added that Dantzler did have a prior relationship with at least one person at each shooting location. At one point during the police chase, the suspect crossed a wide grassy median on the interstate and drove the wrong way down the highway while more than a dozen squad cars pursued him.

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A Shickshinny man scheduled to stand trial in September in the death of a woman may use a mental infirmity claim at his trial. An attorney for John Stone, 59, charged in the September 2009 death of Catherine Tabit,

filed court papers Thursday stating his client may “elect to offer at trial a defense involving evidence … relating to (the) existence of a mental infirmity, mental disease, mental condition …” or other circumstances surrounding Tabit’s death. Stone’s attorney, Joseph Albert, filed the one-page notice. Police allege Stone used a 13inch 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. WILKES-BARRE – An Ashley man was sentenced Thursday to 18 to 36 months in state prison for assaulting another man, who required reconstruct-

ive surgery due to his injuries. Pattrick D. Hawkins, 27, of North Main Street, was sentenced on a single count of aggravated assault by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Van Jura. According to court records, on Nov. 8, Hawkins went to a Mountain Top home, where police said he and another man assaulted Brian Romig. Romig told police he was hit

about 13 times in the face, and reqired extensive reconstructive plastic surgery to several areas of his face. Hawkins was ordered to pay $1,593 in restitution to Romig. Romig was represented by attorney Ferris Webby. Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Reimiller prosecuted the case.

Policy is in accordance with Code of Canon Law with possibility of renewal for six more years. By MARK GUYDISH

SCRANTON – In a move with potential long-term implications for Diocese of Scranton Roman Catholics, Bishop Joseph Bambera announced all appointments of priests as parish pastors will be limited to a six-year term, “with the possibility of renewal for an additional six years.” A diocesan statement issued Thursday said “the decision is in INSIDE: Diocese accord with the Code of announces Canon Law, canon pastoral chang522.” es, Page 4A Canon Law details procedures and rules for the Church. Canon 522 reads: “It is necessary that a parish priest have the benefit of stability, and therefore he is to be appointed for an indeterminate period of time. The diocesan bishop may appoint him for a specified period of time only if the Episcopal Conference has by decree allowed this.” In the U.S., the Episcopal Conference would be the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which proposed “complimentary legislation for canon 522” in 1983 that was approved by the Vatican the following year. That legislation allows the appointment for six years, with a six-year renewal, and notes the original provision regarding appointment for an indefinite time “remains Diocesan in force.” Spokesman The diocesan stateBill Genello ment says a term limit said the new can be “a valuable way to assure pastoral evalrules apply uation and accountabilonly to new ity,” and that “it propastoral apmotes the introduction pointments, of new and creative not to current ideas in a parish.” “Most importantly,” pastors. the statement says, “with the possibility of a 12-year tenure as pastor of a parish, the important principle of pastoral stability is both acknowledged and upheld.” Such stability, though once common locally, has grown rare as the number of priests dwindled dramatically and reassignments grew more frequent to cover all the churches. With the closing and consolidation of roughly half the diocesan churches in the past few years, assignments changed constantly out of sheer necessity. Diocesan Spokesman Bill Genello said the new rules apply only to new pastoral appointments, not to current pastors. While “the intention of this policy is to foster consistency and stability,” Genello wrote in an e-mail, “the bishop has discretion to make adjustments in individual cases as circumstances warrant.” Genello also noted the bishop could extend a pastor’s tenure beyond the 12 years.

A federal grand jury has indicted a disgruntled former construction worker who allegedly damaged a Marcellus Shale natural gas pipeline in Cogan House Township, Lycoming County. According to U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Peter J. Smith, the indictment alleges Henry Virgil Benton, of Bradford, Ark., used a track hoe to excavate the pipeline and then damage, dent and open holes in it in June. Benton worked for the construction contractor that installed the pipeline, Holloman Corp., of Houston, Texas, but was fired before damaging the pipeline, the indictment alleges. The pipeline is owned by Chief Oil and Gas LLC, of Dallas, Texas. A subsidiary of Chief has plans to build a natural gas gathering pipeline through Dallas Township. Smith The indictment followed an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Pennsylvania State Police. If convicted on all the charges against him, Benton, 44, faces a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison, a five-year period of supervised release and a fine of up to $500,000. NEWPORT TWP.

Autopsy is set for Knoebels drowning victim George Roberts of Wilkes-Barre died after being found in the amusement park’s swimming pool. By EDWARD LEWIS

An autopsy is scheduled for today on a 6-year-old boy from Wilkes-Barre who died after being found Wednesday in the swimming pool at Knoebels Amusement Resort in Northumberland County. The boy was identified by his parents

on Facebook postings as George Roberts. Locust Township police were interviewing the boy’s parents, his mother, Ann Marie Howey, and his stepfather, Daniel Roberts Howey, on Thursday. “Georgie was an amazing child. He always had a crooked smile on his face. He always had a hug ready in his heart and arms. He truly wanted everybody to like him and be his friend. He loved WVIA, SpongeBob and ICarly. He slept

every night with his Curious George stuffed monkey,” the family said in a prepared statement. “He will be missed by a lot of people. We do not wish the pain and sorrow we feel to ever have to be felt by any parent.” Lifeguards pulled the boy from the Crystal Pool and performed CPR. He was taken by ambulance to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 5 p.m. See AUTOPSY, Page 4A

Humane officers from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Luzerne County are expected to return to a Glen Lyon apartment building to retrieve several dogs, cats and a parrot on Friday. Cary Moran, SPCA spokesperson, said the owner of the animals signed a release agreeing to surrender the animals that were found abandoned on Wednesday. Police Chief Robert Impaglia said humane officers were notified after the animals were found inside 56 E. Main St. The owner of the animals was recently evicted from the apartment, Impaglia said. Moran said a humane officer provided the owner of the animals 24 hours notice as required by the state’s dog law to retrieve the dogs, cats and parrot before they would be taken. Moran said it appears the animals are in good health. She did not know on Thursday if any citations will be filed. GRANVILLE SUMMIT

Driller cleared of pollution

The state Department of Environmental Protection has cleared a natural gas driller accused of contaminating a water well in Bradford County. Crystal Stroud of Granville Summit in April accused the Chief Oil & Gas LLC of causing her barium poisoning by contaminating her well water supply. She testified in June before Gov. Tom Corbett’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Committee about the alleged contamination and the health problems allegedly ailing her neighbors. DEP tested Stroud’s well water and five nearby wells and detected barium in levels that are potentially dangerous to human health in Stroud’s water supply, but the department said the concentration of barium and other minerals detected in Stroud’s water are consistent with those observed in several nearby wells and which have been historically documented in the North Branch Towanda Creek Valley. DEP therefore believes barium in Stroud’s water predated the arrival of Marcellus Shale gas drilling in her area and was not the product of gas drilling.

County judge says Mark A. McCloskey is sexually violent predator and must register

Area man gets jail in teen sex case By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A Harding man was sentenced Wednesday to 5 ½ to 11 years in state prison on a charge relating to the sexual assault of a then-13-yearold girl. Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley sentenced Mark Andrew McCloskey, 44, of Riverview Village Trailer Park, for unlawful contact with a minor. Polachek Gartley said McCloskey meets the criteria to be deemed a sex-

ually violent predator and must register his address under Megan’s Law for the rest of his life. The judge ordered McCloskey to undergo a mental health evaluation and to have no contact with the girl involved. McCloskey was charged with having sexual contact with the girl from November 2008 to May 2009. According to court papers, on May18, 2009, the teen’s grandfather told police that McCloskey sexually assaulted her on more than one occasion. The grandfather was notified of the

assaults by a neighbor, police said. When police interviewed the girl, she said that at the beginning of the sixmonth period over which the assaults occurred, McCloskey would touch her inappropriately. The girl said she told McCloskey she wanted him to stop. She told police that she was afraid of him and didn’t know what to do. The girl said the inappropriate touching continued, and one day while watching a movie, McCloskey allegedly forced her into sexual activities. The girl said McCloskey was aware of

her age. She said she feared his temper and was afraid he might physically harm her if she told about the abuse. McCloskey was charged in April after an 11-month investigation. Delays in arresting McCloskey were due to multiple interviews with people and the girl being hospitalized several times, police previously said. Assistant District Attorney Maureen Collins prosecuted the case. McCloskey was represented by attorney Nanda Palissery.

Transport funding report near Gov. Corbett’s panel looking at options for $2.5 billion in recurring annual revenue. By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s massive transportation needs were not much in the mix last week when lawmakers and Gov. Tom Corbett settled on a new state budget, but that will soon change. Corbett’s hand-picked Transportation Funding Advisory Commission will issue its recommendations Aug. 1, and the governor and lawmakers are expected to address the issue after the Legislature returns this fall. The commission has at least one more meeting left on its schedule, but Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch said Thursday their quest has been successful to identify options for $2.5 billion in recurring annual revenue for roads, bridges, mass transit and other transportation infrastructure. “We are going to come up with a decade of investment strategy,” Schoch said. “Meaning, if we did this package of financing, what would we be able to build over a decade?” The commission plans to offer Corbett a set of options, from which the governor will work with lawmakers on whatever legislation is deemed necessary. Schoch said the idea is to ramp up over five years to the $2.5 billion figure, possibly to include two $400 million bond issues in the first and second years. Among the probable choices will be increasing license and registration fees, uncapping the oil company franchise tax, diverting vehicle sales taxes into the motor license fund, funding less of the state police’s costs from the motor license fund, increasing local transit matches, changing borrowing practices and consolidating mass transit programs and services. A host of other choices have also been examined for possible further study and action.

Race Coordinator Jack Danko called the track this year “a racer’s delight” and said he expects some of the fastest times in the race’s 105-year history to be posted this weekend. Danko said he was concerned the road would be too slick for the race, which winds around five turns including the 110-degree hairpin called the Devil’s Elbow. Oil naturally seeps from fresh blacktop, he said, but it appears that rain and cars driving over the road have removed most of it by now. Danko said the repairs were desperately needed. “Last year it was so bumpy that you couldn’t really go at the speed you wanted to and take the race

Sports’ fate at WSCTC up in air Majority of members of five school boards must rule on abolition of teams.


PRINGLE – The Joint Operating Committee that runs West Side Career and Technology Center may have passed a budget that eliminates sports, but the final say comes from the 45 men and women who sit on the five school boards that send students to the center. And as of noon Thursday, the jury was still out. “I’ve received 28 ballots,” line you wanted to because of the bumps,” Danko said. “You had to dance around them.” Danko’s son, Darryl Danko, set the course record in 2007, climbing mile-long track in 38.3 seconds in a 900 horsepower Lola Indy Car. Last year, Danko couldn’t even drive that car in the race because its suspension rode too low to handle the potholes and patches, Jack Danko said. But even then, it had to be in better shape than in the inaugural race in 1906. At that time, Laurel Run Road was a dirt track, and just making it to the top was worthy of a prize, Danko said.

But that budget must be approved by a majority of all school board members in the five districts. With nine members each, that’s 45 votes. If 23 of those reject the proposal, the budget is invalid and the JOC must come up with an alternative.

Casey Anthony will be free soon


Judge says he will maintain ‘cooling off period’ before releasing the names of the jurors. By MATT SEDENSKY and KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — Authorities in Florida say Casey Anthony will be freed July 17, not Wednesday as previously announced, as a result of a recalculation of the time she has served. Orange County corrections spokesman Allen Moore announced the new release date in a press release Thursday night. He said it was based on a “detailed recalculation” following a judge’s sentencing of Anthony for lying to authorities about the death of her 2-yearold daughter Caylee. The 25-year-old Anthony was acquitted by a jury Tuesday of killing her


daughter. Judge Belvin Perry on Thursday gave her the maximum sentence of four years for four convictions of lying to authorities. He denied a defense request to combine the misdemeanor counts, which could have made her eligible for immediate release. Perry also fined her $1,000 on each of the four counts. Before her sentenced was announced, the 25-year-old Anthony was animated, smiling and occasionally played with her hair, which was let down for the first time since her trial began in late May. Perhaps she thought, like many, that she would be let go Thursday. Her demeanor turned stone-faced when she heard she would be spending more time in jail. The scene outside the courthouse highlighted the divide that has had social networking sites abuzz since the not guilty verdict was announced Tues-

day. Amid increased police presence, a throng of protesters gathered, holding signs that said “Arrest the Jury!!” and “Jurors 1-12 Guilty of Murder.” Nearby, a handful of supporters also turned out, including a man who held a sign asking Anthony to marry him. Jurors declined to talk with reporters immediately after Tuesday’s verdict and their names were not released by the court. The Associated Press and other news organizations argued during a hearing Thursday that the jurors’ identities should be released. The judge seemed to be leaning toward releasing the names, but said he would hold off for a couple of days, in part because he was worried about the jurors. “The best I think I can do, legally, is a AP PHOTO cooling off period. ... The non-legal side of me really fears for those individuals Casey Anthony waits before the start who simply want to do their civic duty.” of her sentencing hearing Thursday.

American military base in Baghdad in what U.S. officials said appeared to be another attack by Shiite militias hoping to drive U.S. troops out of Iraq. The attack follows the deadliest month for U.S. troops in Iraq in two years. Fifteen U.S. soldiers died in June, nearly all in attacks by Shiite militias. The 46,000 U.S. troops currently stationed in Iraq are to leave by year’s end under a 2008 withdrawal agreement. However, the White House is offering to keep up to 10,000 American soldiers in the country beyond that deadline, if asked by Iraq, to help stabilize the country’s still-shaky security and keep Iran from becoming too cozy with Baghdad officials. In Washington, the top U.S. military official said weapons flowing from Iran into Iraq are becoming more lethal and sophisticated.

Libya funds block nixed The House has rejected an effort to prohibit funds for the U.S. military operation against Libya. The vote was 229-199 on Thursday. Republicans and Democrats had complained that the conflict was illegal because President Barack Obama had never sought congressional approval for the operation. But the House turned back an amendment that would have barred the use of taxpayer dollars to continue U.S. participation in the NATO-led mission. The measure was offered to a $649 billion defense spending bill that wouldn’t go into effect until Oct. 1.

LONDON — The Murdoch media empire unexpectedly killed off the muckraking News of the World tabloid Thursday after a public backlash over the illegal guerrilla tactics it used to expose the rich, the famous and the royal and remain Britain’s best-selling weekly newspaper. The abrupt decision stunned the paper’s staff of 200, shocked the world’s most competitive news town and ignited speculation that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. plans to rebrand the tabloid under a new name in a bid to prevent a phonehacking scandal from wrecking its bid for a far more lucrative television deal.

Mushrooming allegations of criminal behavior at the paper — including bribing police officers for information and hacking into the voice mail messages of celebrities, politicians and the families of murder victims — cast a dark cloud over News Corp.’s multibillion-pound plan to take full ownership of British Sky Broadcasting Group PLC, an operation far more valuable than all of Murdoch’s British newspapers.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama declared a debtcrisis session Thursday with congressional leaders was “very constructive” but said the parties were still far apart on deficit reduction proposals. He said he would reconvene the negotiators on Sunday. Thursday’s meeting came amid signals that the White House was willing to reduce costs for major benefit programs including Social Security and Medicare, while Republicans indicated they might consider new steps to raise revenue. “People were frank,” Obama said, just moments after adjourning the one-and-a-half hour meeting with the eight lawmakers. Obama said the deal would require both Republican and Democratic votes to pass Congress. “Everyone acknowledged that pain will be involved politically on all sides,” he said. Obama met with the leaders of both parties around a table in the White House Cabinet Room as they struggled to reach a deal on raising the government’s debt limit with less than four weeks remaining before a possible firstever U.S. default.

Report: Obesity rates still rising in many states By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON — We’re getting fatter. In 1995, no state had an obesity rate above 20 percent. Now, all but one does. An annual obesity report by two public health groups looked for the first time at state-by-state statistics over the last two decades. The state that has the lowest obesity rate now — Colorado, with 19.8 percent of adults considered obese — would have had the highest rate in 1995.

“When you look at it year by year, the changes are incremental,” says Jeffrey Levi, executive director of the Trust for America’s Health, which writes the annual report with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. “When you look at it by a generation you see how we got into this problem.” The study, based on 2010 data, says a dozen states top 30 percent obesity, most of them in the South. Mississippi topped the list for the seventh year in a row, with Alabama, West Virginia, Ten-

nessee and Louisiana close behind. Just five years ago, in 2006, Mississippi was the only state above 30 percent. No state decreased its level of obesity, which is defined as a body mass index of 30 or more. The body mass index is a measurement based on a calculation using a person’s weight and height.

Treatment program graduates praised Luzerne County expunges the criminal records of the nonviolent offenders. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – One by one, 13 Luzerne County Treatment Court graduates had criminal charges expunged from their records Wednesday after completing the one-year program. “It’s not often we get second chances,” guest speaker state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, DWilkes-Barre, told the graduates. “This is your second chance.” To date, 94 participants have completed the program that began in January 2006. One of those participants, a mother of three, spoke Wednesday, telling the audience that thanks to the program and her sobriety, she is now able to concentrate on One of those her three chilparticipants, dren rather than her ada mother of diction. three, spoke Another graduate, a reWednesday, covering alcotelling the hol abuser, audience said he can that thanks now be a son to his parents, to the proa brother to gram and her his sister and sobriety, she uncle to his nieces and neis now able phews. to concen“This protrate on her gram has all three chilthe necessary tools to stay dren rather sober,” anoththan her er graduate, addiction. who also abused alcohol, said. “It is what you make it.” Due to state law and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act regulations, participants of the program cannot be identified. To be part of the treatment court, participants must be older than 18 and have committed only nonviolent crimes as a result of their addictions. A team of professionals examines each case to decide if offenders should be included in the program and what treatment should be given to the individual. That team follows the person as he or she advances through the program with the ultimate goal of graduating. The program takes about one year to complete, and those who fail to abide by its rules are sentenced. Pashinski spoke to the graduates about sometimes being dealt a bad deck of cards in life, but working through it and “making yourself.” “Don’t give up … there’s more out there to this life (than drugs and alcohol),” he said. “Millions of people don’t need it … and you don’t either.” Luzerne County Judge Lewis Wetzel, who oversees the program with District Judge Joseph Carmody, said the program has been a model for the state because Kelly Cesari, treatment court coordinator and a parole and probation officer, recently received recognition for her work at the Pennsylvania Conference of Drug Court Professionals held in November. “Everyone is working together to (resolve) the same problem … addiction,” Carmody said of the program. Participants include prosecutors, public defenders, judges, probation officers and a host of other workers.






Health survey to address drilling impact Northeastern Pennsylvania results will establish a baseline for future data. By MATT HUGHES

SCRANTON – Researchers are hoping a new survey will provide a starting point to assess the impact, if there is any, of natural gas drilling on the health of Northeastern Pennsylvanians. The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute on Thursday announced the launch of a community health survey documenting the health status of residents in 10 counties: Bradford, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Pike, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga, Wayne and Wyoming. The purpose of the survey is to establish baseline data so that any decline in public health or rise in illnesses allegedly linked to natural gas drilling can be measured accurately. “This may be our last chance to get baseline data,” said Dr. Samuel Lesko, research and medical director of the institute. “As these activities become more and more common, the baseline fades out into the background.” “Research is one of the most

important tools in the fight against cancer,” state Sen. John Blake, D-Archbald, added at a press conference Thursday in Scranton. “… If there is a link to

cancer or other disease from Marcellus Shale, we need to know that as soon as possible.” The survey is being funded by a $75,000 grant from the state De-

partment of Public Welfare. Researchers at the institute, which has offices in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, hope to interview a representative sample of 50

adults living in each of the 10 participant counties about their medical and family histories, occupations and willingness to provide biological samples and participate in future studies. The study will collect data about diseases in addition to cancer, with a focus on the types of illnesses people living around gas wells suspect may be linked to drilling. Some areas it targets, like Bradford County, have seen a boom in drilling in the last three years, Lesko said, while others, like Luzerne and Pike County, are unlikely to see widespread natural gas drilling. Those areas should provide a control group to measure change, if any, in the areas where drilling is more active. Researchers added that they hope the survey will lead to a long-term study of public health and gas drilling in Northeastern Pennsylvania. “While it may represent a pilot it contains value in and of itself,” institute President Robert Durkin said. “We’re anxious to find out how open people are to participating … (and) we think that it lays the foundation for us when it comes to the more competitive grants from the National Cancer Institute.”

Wilkes expanding degree programs into Poconos A new building is under construction in Bartonsville, Monroe County.


When Bucknell University sensed a higher-education need in Luzerne County in 1933, it opened a branch campus in Wilkes-Barre. Known as Bucknell Junior College, that school became Wilkes College. Nearly 80 years later, Wilkes (now Wilkes University) is following in its patron’s footsteps with a planned expansion into Monroe County, where it will open a new adult education facility in Bartonsville this fall. . Construction is under way on the 2,800-square-foot facility that will house two classrooms, a conference room and office space.

About two years ago, Wilkes began offering evening and weekend courses to adult learners in the Poconos by setting up operations in Pocono Mountain School District classrooms, said Michael Speziale, dean of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. The school then moved those classrooms to Great Wolf Lodge in Scotrun because of classroom access concerns on evenings and weekends at Pocono Mountain. The strong response from students led Wilkes to believe there was “sufficient demand in the Poconos to offer these programs,” Speziale said. So the decision was made to find a site to construct a permanent Wilkes building. He said Bartonsville was chosen “because of its central location and its ease of access to the highway.” About 60 students are expected to enroll in courses this

fall at the site. Wilkes President Tim Gilmour said, “We feel this is an ideal place to expand our offerings, based on impressive population growth and numbers of people eager to continue their education.” The Wilkes University Pocono Center will offer a master of business administration degree, an accelerated bachelor of business administration program for those wishing to complete their degree, and a master of science degree in engineering management. East Stroudsburg University is located less than 10 miles away, but it does not offer any of the three degrees, though an agreement with Shippensburg University will bring the master of business administration program to campus next year. Also nearby is Northampton Community College, which has a Monroe County campus in Tannersville. It offers

Attendees can register online at

an associate’s degree in business administration but neither master’s nor bachelor’s degrees in business administration. Speziale said he does not believe Wilkes is infringing on East Stroudsburg’s territory. “East Stroudsburg University and Wilkes University clearly understand the value of providing people with access to the higher education programs of their

choice and we welcome Wilkes University to Monroe County,” said Doug Smith, East Stroudsburg University’s spokesman The Bartonsville site and the programs offered were developed to meet the unique needs of adult learners, including those working at the nearby Tobyhanna Army Depot. “Wilkes is dedicated to the adult market. We know that working adults demand convenient and flexible programs that will improve their career prospects and quality of life,” said Speziale. The Poconos may not be the last expansion for Wilkes. “We always keep the doors of opportunity open. We’re testing the water with this. But certainly we’re open to expanding to other areas,” Speziale said. He said there are currently no plans for additional expansion.

Sunday motorcycle sales, routine HIV testing, watercraft DUI among new laws approved by governor By PETER JACKSON Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Corbett marked the midpoint of the 2011 legislative session Thursday by signing dozens of new laws. Most of the laws take effect in 60 days. Some highlights: • Licensed Pennsylvania motorcycle dealers will be allowed to sell, buy or trade bikes on Sun-

day. Current law allows the sale of motorcycle parts and other merchandise on Sunday, but not bikes. • HIV testing will become a more routine part of general medical care, as the Centers for Disease Control has recommended. The current requirement for the patient’s signed consent will be replaced with a requirement that the consent be

“documented” by health care providers, and patients may refuse to be tested. • People younger than 21 would be immune from prosecution for consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages if police learn about it solely because the individual was seeking medical assistance for someone else. • The criminal offense of homicide by watercraft while operat-

ing under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be upgraded from a third-degree felony to a second-degree felony. • The maximum penalty for public officials who violate the open-meeting requirements of the state Sunshine Act will be increased from a flat $100 per violation to $1,000 for a first offense and $2,000 for subsequent violations.

• Small, non-coal surface mining, including bluestone quarrying, will be permitted on farmland that receives preferential tax treatment under the state “Clean and Green” program. • Upon the request of a parent, the state Health Department must issue a certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth for any fetal death previously filed with the department.

The River Common fountain on River Street in Wilkes-Barre has been turned off because Luzerne County can’t pay workers overtime to perform state-mandated water chemical testing.

Fountain and funds are dry County will turn on River Common water only for special events, due to cost.


The River Common fountain is turned on only for major special events because Luzerne County can’t afford the state-mandated water testing, officials say. The fountain is regulated as a public swimming pool because it contains a pool of underground water that is circulated through a filtration system, said county Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena. That means the chlorine and pH levels must be tested twice a day when the fountain is operating, he said. County levee crews end their shifts around 3:30 p.m. on weekdays and would have to be paid overtime to check the water chemistry on weeknights and weekends when most people would have free time to visit the fountain, Brozena said. County officials expected the county would be in better shape financially when the fountain was incorporated into the design for the revamped downtown WilkesBarre park along the Susquehanna River around 2004, Brozena said. The park opened in June 2009. Brozena is researching the cost of a water monitoring system


The fountain is regulated as a public pool because it contains a pool of underground water that is circulated through filters.

that would issue cell phone alerts to county workers if chemistry levels exceed acceptable standards. The system would comply with monitoring standards and would not require employees to physically test the water, he said. The fountain would be turned off when an alert is issued, he said. County Commissioner Stephen A. Urban also wants to know the estimated cost to hire an outside company to perform the testing. “Maybe it would be a minor expense to contract out,” Urban said. Fountain testing would have to be funded by the county’s strapped general fund operating budget, Brozena said. Revenue from the Wyoming Valley Levee fee may not cover the expense be-

cause the fee must be used for flood protection work, not recreation, he said. At the very least, Urban said he wants the county to activate the fountain during weekday working hours. “We have this nice fountain, and kids should have an opportunity to use it,” Urban said. Brozena said he is disappointed because the fountain draws children like a magnet. The fountain, located at the Millennium Circle levee portal opening between the courthouse and Market Street Bridge, also has lighting that may change the color of the spraying water. “I’d love to have it going. It’s great to watch the kids enjoying it. We’re working on it,” Brozena said.

Court allows new appeal of murder conviction By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

WILKES-BARRE – The state Superior Court has reinstated George Fink’s right to appeal his first-degree murder conviction, ruling that the original appeal filed by his attorney was so deficient that it deprived Fink of a fair review of the merits of his case. A three-member panel of the court voted 2-1 on Thursday to allow Fink to file a new appeal of the trial judge’s ruling that denied Fink’s motion to suppress incriminating statements he made to police regarding the death of Charlene DeWitt. Fink was found guilty in May 2007 of killing DeWitt, his girlfriend, after a non-jury trial before then-Judge Michael Conahan. Police said Fink smothered DeWitt to death after ambushing her inside her Union Township home on Jan. 20, 2006. Attorney Matthew Kelly, one of three attorneys who represented Fink at the trial, filed a direct appeal of the conviction after the trial. The appeal focused on whether Conahan had erred in denying a motion to suppress statements Fink made to several police officers shortly after DeWitt’s body was discovered. A different panel of the Superior Court denied the appeal on Jan. 6, 2009, finding that the legal

The appeal focused on whether (Judge Michael) Conahan had erred in denying a motion to suppress statements (George) Fink made to several police officers shortly after (Charlene) DeWitt’s body was discovered. brief Kelly had filed failed to thoroughly develop the key argument in the case, which focused on whether Fink’s Miranda rights against self incrimination were violated when police continued to speak to him after he had asked for an attorney. Fink initially spoke with several state troopers and denied killing DeWitt. He then asked for an attorney, and the troopers ceased questioning, as required under Miranda. A short time later, Fink voluntarily reinstituted a conversation with a state trooper and admitted he killed DeWitt. In the 2006 ruling denying Fink’s original appeal, the Superior Court faulted Kelly, finding that he “did not make a single allegation of a Miranda violation.” The court declined to review the merits of the appeal, however, saying it would not “form (Fink’s) arguments for him.” Fink, acting as his own attor-

ney, subsequently filed a new appeal that sought to reinstate his appeal of the conviction based on a claim of ineffective assistance of counsel. Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury denied Fink’s request, prompting the appeal to the Superior Court that resulted in Thursday’s ruling. In that decision, Superior Court judges John Bender and Robert Freedberg overturned Amesbury’s ruling. Senior Judge Robert Colville dissented. Writing for the majority, Bender said Kelly’s actions in filing a deficient brief denied Fink his right to have his argument reviewed on its merits, thus it constituted negligence per se, requiring reinstatement of the appeal. Kelly did not immediately return a phone message left at his office Thursday afternoon. In a previous hearing held before Amesbury regarding Fink’s ineffective counsel claim, Kelly testified he did not believe Fink had a strong appellate court issue because he had voluntarily spoken to police. The latest ruling by the Superior Court does not mean Fink will be granted a new trial. It merely allows him to file a new appeal with the court regarding the suppression issue.

Pa. seeks stronger look at natural-gas drilling near water By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s environmental regulators are agreeing to take more precautions before they approve certain permits for oil and natural-gas drilling sites where well construction poses a pollution threat to waterways.

The state Department of Environmental Protection agreed to themeasurestosettleacomplaint by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation first filed in 2009 that it had approved three deficient permit applications. The settlement, dated Wednesday, was approved by an Environmental Hearing Board judge.

The stronger review process could take up to 60 days. Currently, those permits can get approved in a matter of two weeks. Under the settlement, the department will require the stronger review if there’s the potential of polluting a high-quality waterway, or if construction is on a floodplainoracontaminatedsite.

July 7, 2011

aymond C. Rembish, LTC, U.S. Army retired, and a longtime R resident of Hampton, Va., passed

away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 82, on Wednesday, June 29, 2011. He thoroughly enjoyed life, family and friends, and he always looked forward to the next day. “Ray” was born May 19, 1929, in Wilkes-Barre, and was the oldest of five children. His father was Joseph P. Rembish and his mother was Stella S. Lukasiewicz Rembish. His mother passed away at an early age, and he and his siblings were also raised by their loving step mother, Helen Krowkowski Rembish. In 1947, Ray graduated from Coughlin High School and enlisted in the U.S. Army. In 1952, he married Eleanor A. Welgus, of Wilkes-Barre. They were sweethearts for 56 years until her passing in 2008. During his 25 years of military service, Ray and Eleanor raised a family of four children as they were assigned to numerous Army bases throughout the U.S. and overseas. In 1965, they established their permanent home at Hampton, Va. During his Army career, he served as a Private, Noncommissioned Officer (Sergeant), and Commissioned Officer. Ray’s military specialties included Infantry Paratrooper, Infantry Officer, Special Forces (Green Beret) Officer, Ordnance Officer, and Nuclear Special Weapons Officer. He served in units that included the 82nd Airborne Division (FT Bragg, N.C.), 11th Airborne Division (FT Campbell, Ky.), the 7th Infantry Division during the Korean War, 77th Special Forces Group (FT Bragg, N.C.), as well as assignments to Red Stone Arsenal (Ala.), West Germany, and the Philippines Islands. Ray retired from the Army at Fort Monroe, Va., in 1972. His military decorations include the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Master Parachutist Badge, and Glider Badge. After the Army, he began his second career working for the next 20 years in retail sales in Hampton, Va., primarily with the JC Penney Company. During this period, he also attended college and graduated in 1979, summa cum laude, from Saint Leo University with a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree. He retired in 1991, and enjoyed many years with his wife, family, and friends. He was an active member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, the Nocturnal Adoration Society, and a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Co-

lumbus, St. Mary Star of the Sea Council. Ray was preceded in death by his father, his mother, his step mother, his father-in-law, John Welgus; mother-in-law, Anna Klem Welgus; brother-in-law, Nick Kozicki, brother-in-law, Pete Welgus; brother-inlaw, Andy Welgus and his wife Eleanor Rembish.

Michael Mirch July 6, 2011 Michael Mirch, 95, of Avoca, passed away Wednesday July 6, at the home of his caretaker and daughter Jean Kiesinger. Born in 1915 in Troy, N.Y, Michael was the son of the late Eli and Vuka (Lasko) Mirch. For most of his adult life, Mike worked in the construction and coal mining industries. He was employed by Kaminski Brothers in Pittston Township for many years. His work ethic was so strong and his passion for work so deep, that he reluctantly retired his position as a drag-line operator at the age of 85. However, no passion surpassed the bond he shared with his beloved wife, Gladys. Those who knew Mike and Gladys admired and were inspired by their relationship of 72 years — a relationship defined by mutual respect, deep care and the beautiful sense of delight they found in each other. They genuinely lived to serve each other and this sense of “service” was obvious in things as simple as the daily slice of homemade apple pie that Gladys lovingly served Mike, and things as complex as Mike’s tireless care for Gladys as she approached her own death. Mike’s calm and steady presence was a source of stability for Gladys as she made her descent into the darkness of Alzheimer’s disease. He played a central role in her caretaking until her death. Testament to the love they shared is the fact that Mike was the only face and voice she recognized into the final days of her life. And like many couples that share a deep, abiding love, Mike’s physical decline began shortly following his wife’s death. Mike and Gladys were always a quiet refuge for each other, and to imagine them now reunited is of great solace to those that knew and loved them. Mike took great joy in tending his garden. He was an avid fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and actually passed away to the sound of the ball game playing in the background. Although a frugal man by nature, Mike loved a new car and

never felt an ounce of guilt splurging on the purchase of one every few years. He thoroughly enjoyed his grand and great-grandchildren and had a keen interest in their lives. His daily visits with Jack and Emma, two of his great-grandchildren, brought him great joy in his final years. Mike died in the home of his daughter, Jean, who gave her father the greatest gift a child can offer: a space of comfort and calm within which to live out the remaining days of a very rich, full and vibrant life. In the two years that he resided in her home, they shared an intimacy that can only arise between two people who seek to more deeply know each other. He often referred to Jean as his “right hand” and he died with her seated beside him. Those who knew and loved Mike can take solace in the knowledge that he left this world in much the same way he lived his life; surrounded by family and with tremendous grace, dignity and abiding calm. In addition to his parents Michael is preceded in death by his brothers, Sam and John Mirch. He is survived by his son, Richard Mirch, and his wife, Rosann, of Hancock, N.Y.; daughter, Ethel Panek, and her husband, Marty, of Moscow, and daughter, Jean Kiesinger and her husband, Bill, of Avoca. Michael had 11 grandchildren, 20 greatgrandchildren and several nieces and nephews who will miss him beyond measure. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday, July 11, at noon at St. Patrick’s R.C. Church, Church St., Long Eddy, N.Y., with Fr. Ignatius Smith officiating. Friends may call Sunday, July 10, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Kiesinger Funeral Services Inc., 255 McAlpine St., Duryea. Interment will be held at St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Long Eddy, N.Y. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be to the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Drive, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702. Online condolences may be made to

Districts face tough choices with referendum changes New law makes it harder for school boards to raise taxes without going to voters first. By MARK GUYDISH

HARRISBURG – When state legislators were wrangling over proposals to use money from legalized gambling to cut school property taxes for homeowners, some of them wanted to include limits on how much school boards could raise taxes. A compromise emerged that proved

TAXES Continued from Page 1A

still increased taxes. Among those, Wyoming Valley West had the largest disparity, cutting spending by 3.3 percent, yet increasing taxes by 6.3 percent. Put another way, WVW expects to spend $2.1 million less, yet asked property owners to pay about $60,000 more total. WVW Superintendent Charles Suppon said the main reasons for

complicated and, overall, ineffective. The law that resulted is known as Act 1 of 2006, and it did set an annual limit on tax hikes that districts could enact without voter approval. The problem: It included 10 exceptions districts could apply to the state for. Districts did exactly that, and exceptions were rarely denied. The result: Referenda were rare while tax hikes exceeding the limits were commonplace. In Luzerne County’s 11 districts alone, 30 exceptions were sought and granted in four years. Dis-

tricts can and do apply for multiple exceptions each year. When Gov. Tom Corbett proposed a budget that included deep cuts in education money, he also promised legislation that would make it easier for districts to control spending – changing restrictions on when and why teachers can be furloughed, for example – and to make it harder for school boards to skirt the referendum requirement. He accomplished at least half of that. On June 30 Corbett signed both the state budget and Senate Bill 330. That bill eliminates all

exceptions to the referendum mandate except three: Tax increases for special education costs, pension costs or existing debt. The new law also tightens the rules for approval of those remaining exceptions, though school officials are still sifting through the details to see how it will play out in the real world. The bottom line is that school boards will have a much tougher time raising taxes beyond the annual state limits without voter approval. And that change has come at a particularly tough

time. The limit, known as the “Act 1 index,” varies from district to district and year to year. The state calculates the limit based on economic data from previous years. With the Great Recession still abundantly influencing calculations, the index has been dropping dramatically. Initially, local districts were able to raise taxes by about 5 percent. This year most were limited to about 2 percent. Predictions are that next year the limits could hover around 1 percent.

Local school boards point out that much of their cost increases are already locked in through union contracts, and cannot be curbed simply because the index is low. They also point out that health insurance and pension costs – both largely out of their control – are rising at double-digit rates. They warn that the low Act 1 index rate coupled with the new restrictions on referendum exceptions could lead to another round of severe cuts in staff and programs next year, and even several years after.

the tax hike -- despite the steep spending cuts -- were to cover expansion of one school and to head off bigger cuts in 2012. He said he would not be surprised if the district has to look for another $1million in savings next year. “The one thing that’s out there that has everyone on pins and needles is the bill that does away with exceptions to Act1,” Suppon said, referring to what had been known as Senate Bill 330, signed into law by the governor June 30. That bill strips away many exceptions to a tax referendum man-

date in Act 1, a law that requires districts to get voter approval for tax increases that exceed a statesetindex.Act1allowednumerous exceptions, and districts routinely sought and received them, bypassing the need for a referendum. SB 330 eliminated most of the exceptions and put restrictions on the ones that remain: increases to cover spikes in special education costs, pension costs, or to pay off construction debt. The special education limits “are major concern,” Suppon

said, noting most special education costs are incurred because of state and federal mandates. “That’s been an escalating cost for us.” Dallas School District Business Manager Grant Palfey noted that under the new rules, whether a district can get approval for a referendum exception for pension payments depends partly on salaries paid to teachers today. This makes little sense, he said, because pension obligations can change substantially as contracts are renegotiated and employees

retire and are replaced in future years. It also makes little sense because the amount districts pay intothepensionfundissetbyastate agency. “We can’t control the pension rate,” Palfey said, Dallas increased spending this year by 1.6 percent while increasing taxes by 5 percent, but about 3 percent of that tax hike was planned years ago when the school board first decided to build a new high school, set to open this fall. To pay the roughly $40 millioncost,3percentincreaseswere

planned through 2011-12. Palfey said the district should be able to keep any tax increase next year within the state limit, but added that the district is already looking at which teachers are likely to retire and how many of those positions could be left unfilled to avoid shortfalls in future budgets. And he believes similar planning will be needed for a long time. “I anticipate it will be a challenge for the next10 years,” Palfey said. “I don’t see how it’s going to stop.”

the family hirings. “And if the person doesn’t file it, I will,” Kadluboski said. The Ethics Commission could open an investigation even if the employees have resigned. In a 1991 case – Frank Dodaro vs. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania -- the state Supreme Court overturned a Commonwealth Court affirmation of an Ethics Commission ruling that Dodaro pay back summer wages earned by his son. The high court ruling stated: “We hold that the wages paid to the Appellant’s minor son for the temporary work actually performed was not ‘financial gain other than compensation provided by law.’ ” Dodaro was a voting member of the Board of Directors of the Borough of Ambridge Water Authority.

“Our summer employees and interns perform a great public service to the people of Wilkes-Barre and gain valuable work experience that in many cases has inspired these workers to remain public servants beyond school both here and in other communities,” Leighton said. “It is this opportunity that drove members of my family to seek employment with the city for the summer. Not to exploit the people of Wilkes-Barre, but to serve them.” Leighton then addressed the ethics of the situation. “I want to state here and now that I have not violated my oath of office,” he said. “I have always run an honest government and will continue to do so. Given the developments of the last few days, speaking with residents, and most importantly, consulting my family, to avoid the appearance of impropriety, all family members employed by the city have agreed to resign their position with the city effective at the end of busi-

ness (Thursday).” Leighton said he spoke with someone at the Ethics Commission regarding the issue, but he would not disclose what was discussed. It is not known if a complaint was filed with the commission regarding Leighton. “The commission can neither confirm nor deny whether a complaint has been filed or whether an investigation is being conducted,” said Robin Hittie, a commission spokeswoman. “I feel that there are important issues that the city faces and this should not become an issue that consumes the city conversation,” Leighton said. “I do not take these matters lightly, but I firmly believe that I acted in good faith. I am going to get back to work for the people of Wilkes-Barre as I have been every day.” Thomas Baldino, political science professor at Wilkes University, said anyone holding elective office should go to all lengths necessary to avoid the ap-

pearance of impropriety. “The mayor holds a position of public trust,” Baldino said. “In a situation like this involving the employment of a member of one’s family, it appears to be inappropriate. It may be legal, but it certainly raises questions.” Baldino said people will want to know how to apply for the positions since they weren’t advertised. Jensen said hundreds of applications come in each year, so the city feels there is no need to advertise. Jensen said she can recall only one year during the last three mayoral administrations – Leighton, Thomas McGroarty and Lee Namey – when the city needed to advertise to fill summer jobs. “If there is no need to advertise these jobs, then why advertise any city jobs? It’s absurd,” Baldino said. “By advertising you are assured of getting a good pool of candidates from which to choose.” Baldino said there is a bigger issue in

the discussion – the perception that you can’t get a job in Luzerne County unless you have political connections. “We still have a general public perception that government works for those with connections,” Baldino said. “If we as a community are trying to overcome those perceptions, incidents like this one don’t help dispel those perceptions.” Baldino admitted the three positions are “small fish” and not larger, higherpaying permanent jobs. “The resignations are a step forward, but still many questions will be left in the minds of citizens.” Baldino said he would expect Leighton’s opponent in the November general election, Lisa Cope, to raise this issue during the campaign. “We still have four months or so until the election,” Baldino said. “I think this will be used against Leighton. I think some public trust has been eroded here.”

Pitch in, help out victims of flooding


LASH FLOOD victims in Plymouth Township and Plymouth borough, who on Sunday got walloped by a creek’s raging waters, suddenly find themselves feeling high and dry – as in, without much help. Consider this their SOS. Surrounding municipalities and volunteer crews should pitch in with personnel and equipment this month to make the cleanup go faster and restore some normalcy to the lives of hundreds of Luzerne County residents. So far, responses from the federal and state governments seem to be dragging. Several borough residents told The Times Leader on Wednesday that no one in an official capacity had yet visited their damaged homes. Meanwhile, township residents along Coal Street expressed concerns about acquiring medicines and other necessities, especially if vehicle access can’t be quickly restored to their properties. Residents of low-lying spots along the Susquehanna River, which frequently get soaked by rising water, can sympathize with people in the 70 or so homes hit by the weekend’s

freak storm. They know the physical effort that goes into flood recovery, and the emotional toll of having one’s life disrupted. There should be an army of willing, summertime helpers like the 30-plus youths from the Bear Creek Camp who recently descended on Plymouth. They supplied muscle power for tasks including mud removal. Let’s hope this spirit of cooperation becomes contagious. Let’s hope public works crews from nearby cities and boroughs get the OK to cross municipal borders on a “humanitarian mission,” lending their skills and restoring order. (If a recycling pickup day or two gets postponed in their “home” communities because of it, so what?) Some of our Wyoming Valley neighbors need aid. For what are you waiting?

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Telling us to turn left at the old oak tree doesn’t work anymore.” Fred Rosencrans The Luzerne County 911 data/technical support manager this week explained why new addresses, enabling emergency responders to pinpoint locations, continue to be assigned in certain communities, especially rural areas. Dallas Township and Dallas borough are the latest to receive new addresses. Kingston and Bear Creek townships will be next.


Response plans need an update


HE CRIPPLING OF Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in March rekindled concerns about the safety of nuclear power generation worldwide, and recent reports on conditions at the104 commercial reactors in the United States now have sparked welcome attention from Congress. As part of an investigative series, The Associated Press reported last month that the number of people living within a 10mile radius of the nation’s plants has increased by an average of 62 percent in 30 years, raising questions about the adequacy of evacuation planning. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, whose state is home to nine operating reactors, has asked for a congressional investigation to determine if response plans have kept pace with population growth. As Sen. Casey noted in his letter to the Government Accountability Office, many nuclear plants were intentionally built in rural areas, away from concentrated populations and economic centers, but the “new demographic realities require a re- examination of our security protocols.” At 12 sites in the nation,

population has doubled. The Beaver Valley plant in Shippingport is an anomaly. Population within a 5Casey mile radius grew by only 1.5 percent, and it dropped in the 10-, 20- and 50mile ranges. That was not true of plants at Three Mile Island near Harrisburg, nor those in Eastern Pennsylvania, where population grew from 2000 to 2010. Population growth near plants in New Jersey and New York was even greater. None of the recent calls for examination should be considered an indictment of nuclear power. You need not be an opponent of the technology, which this newspaper supports, to think it’s a good idea that evacuation procedures are up to date. The United States needs more information about how citizens, government agencies and plant operators should react if something goes wrong at a reactor. Only good can come of further review in Washington. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Pure politics prevents compromise on debt ceiling BEHIND THE political one-upmanship and bipartisan bashing, the underlying problem preventing a compromise to cut the deficit and increase the federal debt ceiling is the gap between what needs to be done and what politically can be done. The crucial players in closing it remain House Republicans. After all, virtually everyone who has proposed a serious deficit reduction plan – except Republican Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin – has concluded that any package must include savings in four areas: domestic discretionary spending; entitlements such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security; defense spending; and revenues. Every recent bipartisan panel has said that, and it was the path pursued by previous presidents of both parties, Republicans Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton. It’s what President Barack Obama is urging. But given present positions, no such package can pass the House – where many GOP members were elected on platforms opposing any debt ceiling increase – and possibly the Senate. So both parties are pursuing political goals. House Democrats, whose votes might be required if most House Republicans stand firm, oppose cutting entitlements without curbing tax breaks for wealthier Americans. Senate Democrats are divided, but most oppose further domestic spending cuts and entitlement reductions without some revenue


CARL P. LEUBSDORF increases. Senate Republicans floated that old panacea, a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget, but don’t have the votes. They oppose increasing tax rates, though some indicate they could raise some revenues. Though a minority, they have enough votes to block Senate action on anything. And House Republicans, who have enough votes to pass or block anything if they stick together, initially insisted they won’t consider any increase in revenues. Internal congressional politics complicate the situation. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s decision to quit Vice President Joe Biden’s bipartisan talks seemed designed to pressure Speaker John Boehner against accepting any increases in revenues or face a revolt by anti-tax Republicans that could undermine his speakership. But on Wednesday, Cantor indicated he might be willing to accept provisions closing some tax loopholes. House Democrats see political value in resisting Medicare cuts to benefit from the opening that Ryan provided with his unpopular plan to replace Medicare with a voucher system. They also complain that they’ve been ignored in the negotiating. Given this impasse, both sides have resorted to political demagoguery aimed more at placing blame for any debt default caused by fail-

ure to reach a deal than actually reaching one. One hope is that the elements of a feasible deal are evident. Biden’s talks reportedly identified $1.5 trillion $1.7 trillion in spending cuts, reductions in farm subsidies and federal retirement benefits, Medicare and Medicaid cost savings, a formula to reduce annual Social Security increases and a mechanism for curbing future spending. House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer and Boehner previously proposed gradually increasing the Social Security retirement age and reducing benefits for higher-income recipients. Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman and Republican Sen. Tom Coburn proposed limiting Medicare benefits for wealthier Americans. These proposals provide the basis for a compromise in the national interest. But many Republicans think Obama’s acceptance of large spending cuts means they are winning this fight, though a recent Pew Research CenterWashington Post poll suggests they won’t escape the primary blame if they force a default.

Replace property tax with consumption tax



Given this impasse, both sides have resorted to political demagoguery aimed more at placing blame for any debt default caused by failure to reach a deal than actually reaching one.

he dirty secrets of the Luzerne County reassessment live on through the 25 percent tax increases in two years. There have been many individuals who have assisted in fighting the reassessment tax increases. Now, I am the final holdout in a unique process known as mediation. Although there have been many legal and ethical issues to attack, our strategy was to highlight the violation of the statutory deadline for formal appeals. Nearly 4,600 taxpayers were heard after the deadline of Oct. 31. My date was Nov. 5 and, wouldn’t you know it, one of the pieces of evidentiary material, a log book signed by all taxpayers on their appeal dates and retained by Luzerne County was “destroyed and not maintained”? This was told to us during a deposition. I brought this fight because of two reasons. First, if successful, it would have rolled back the 25 percent tax burden that has been placed on county property own-

ers struggling to get by in difficult economic times. Second, it was the right thing to do. As many people who have followed this case know, we were successful throughout the two-year legal battles until a judge ruled in favor of Luzerne County on our summary judgment filing. However, the judge did have an encouraging word in court regarding the merits of this case by stating, “Right church perhaps wrong pew.” The judge, however, did not offer a written opinion that would have clarified his decision. The only remaining option is a costly trial, which seemingly has been


Luzerne County’s strategy from the beginning; use our own money against us to hire lawyers and create layers upon layers of delays and expenditures. Remember the outcomes of these events: the burden of a 25 percent tax increase and potentially more to come, the politically elite still enjoying undervaluation of their properties, officials who had properties not on the tax rolls, an assessment board still getting paid with perks, a glut of home foreclosures and an evergrowing level of disgust regarding taxation of properties. With school districts facing tough financial decisions, it is the perfect time for state legislators to re-evaluate abolishing an archaic and unfair property tax in favor of a consumption tax. By doing so now, Pennsylvania lawmakers have the allocation revenue data available to equitably proportion the new consumption tax projections to the school districts. It also would assist in reducing the pain that is being suffered by certain taxpayers in Luzerne County. Vic Kopko Hanover Township

is temporary for the planned pipeline to become operable. He said the company plans to begin major construction by midJuly or early August for the pipeline to be operable by October. Williams received preliminary land development approval last month from the Wyoming County Planning Commission to construct a metering facility on 5 ½ acres of land off Schoolhouse Road. Northmoreland Township does not have a zoning ordinance in place and land development is

watch the demolition. “It was like a shotgun; two blasts,” his mother, Diane Herbert added. Crews actually used three sets of charges to take down the bridge – 200 pounds of dynamite in all – but the first two blasts were the most audible. They severed the road surface first from the Jenkins Township embankment and then a split-second later at the center, between the middle two of the bridge’s four segments. A third blast then destroyed the support pier beneath the pair of already collapsing bridge sections. The bridge segments landed on a concrete causeway crews constructed beneath and slightly upriver of the bridge to catch the structure. The explosive charges were set to cause the bridge to roll upriver, away from the new Eighth Street Bridge that stands only feet downriver of the old structure, PennDOT District 4 spokesman James May said. The new bridge sustained no apparent damage. The explosives fired about a minute before they were scheduled to go off, taking away the crowd’s chance to chant a final countdown for the bridge, but

otherwise the demolition appeared to have gone off without a hitch, May said. PennDOT constructed a $23 million replacement that opened at the end of March because the original bridge was determined to be structurally deficient and had a limited load capacity. The metal supports of the old bridge will be recycled, May said. The reason the bridge is being demolished in segments is that a causeway could not be built under the entire bridge without damming the river, May said. PennDOT plans to demolish the rest of the bridge in about a month. Though few who came to watch the demolition wished they could drive over the bridge again, many shared memories of their first time maneuvering a vehicle through the bridge’s notoriously-narrow travel lanes – a feat that had became a sort of unofficial driver’s license exam for teens in the area. “When I was learning to drive at Coughlin High School, the test was you would drive over the bridge, and if you made it you we’re ready for your license exam,” said Sandy Stella Sitoski of Laflin. “It was very narrow and it would shake and you’d be driving like this,” she added, peering wide eyed over an imaginary steering wheel.

“I’m glad to see it go,” said Elizabeth Knaub of West Wyoming. “My mom wouldn’t let me get my license before I drove over it, so I’m glad it’s gone.” The old bridge was built in 1900, eight years before the Ford Motor Co. began producing the Model T and cars became more prevalent. With a roadway only19 feet, 5 inches wide from curb to curb, no turning lanes and limited sightlines at the intersection with River Road, the old bridge clearly wasn’t designed with modern automobiles in mind. “It’s about time,” said Joe Langdon, of Plains Township, who came to watch the demolition with his grandsons E.J. and Steven. “It was a narrow bridge. It was probably built for the horse and buggies; it wasn’t built for the modern cars.” But for all its faults, some at the demolition said they will miss the historic character the old camelback truss bridge gave the neighborhood. “I grew up on (the Wyoming) side of the bridge and my grandmother lived on this side,” said Michelle Ondusko, of Wyoming. “I remember crossing that bridge in the flood of ’72. My mother drove right past the cops to make sure my grandmother was OK.” “I must have traveled this way millions of times in my 50 years,” she continued. “I have tears in my eyes; I really do.”

COURT BRIEFS SWOYERSVILLE – Charges of simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct against David Newberry, 30, of Ann Court, Luzerne, were dismissed during a preliminary hearing on Thursday. Luzerne police had charged Newberry with punching Alycia O’Donald while she was holding an infant at her Main Street, Luzerne, apartment on June 28, according to the criminal complaint.

The old bridge was built in 1900, eight years before the Ford Motor Co. began producing the Model T and cars became more prevalent. The structure with its narrow lanes was replaced by a new wider, concrete span that was constructed nearby. AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER

Out to dry… FLASH FLOOD victims in Plymouth and Plymouth Township, who on Sunday got walloped by raging waters, suddenly find themselves feeling high and dry – as in, without much help.

and Dallas townships in Luzerne County. The 24-inch pipeline would tap into the Williams-owned Transco interstate pipeline near the Dallas School District campus off Hildebrandt Road from where it would be sent to market. The Springville line will run through Northmoreland Township at a Class 2-level of thickness due to the township’s population density; township secretary Judy Rusinko estimates the population to be around 1,600 residents. The pipeline thickness proposed in Dallas Township would be at a Class 4, the highest federal Department of Transportation regulation, because of the more than 8,000 residents living there. Dickinson said this is also because of the possible impact on the pipeline due to population. Dickinson said the company aims to minimize threats to public safety and damage to the environment while choosing its routes and project sites, in addition to finding landowners to work with because the company does not have the power of eminent domain in Pennsylvania. He said the company will offer baseline and post-construction water testing for residents’ supplies within a 150foot radius of the work. Residents in Dallas Township have publicly protested the placement of Williams’ proposed natural gas metering facility, which would be located about 1,800 feet from the four Dallas schools. Sam Hockman of Northmoreland Township said his property is about a quarter of a mile from Williams’ alternate metering station location. He said he’s concerned about possible chemicals located on the site and losing the tranquility he’s enjoyed for 36 years. “ ‘Not in my backyard’ is a nice thing, but obviously Dallas Township used zoning and public opinion effectively to kick them over to our township, and now we’re stuck with it,” he said. “I’m a realist – it’s a done deal.”

WILKES-BARRE – Two men accused by city police of stealing copper pipes and wiring from a vacant house on Holland Street waived their rights to preliminary hearings in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on Thursday. Matthew Brill, 20, of Plymouth, and Caleb Reich, 31, of Wilkes-Barre, waived charges of theft and criminal trespass to Luzerne County Court. Brill also waived a burglary charge to county court. Police allege the two men entered the vacant house to steal copper pipe and wires on June 16, according to the criminal complaints.

Jeter gets hit No. 2,998, but Yankees lose Shortstop leads off with double vs. Rays By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Jeff Niemann gave up Derek Jeter’s 2,998th hit but little else, B.J. Upton homered and drove in three runs, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 5-1 on Thursday night to start strong in a long stretch of games against their biggest division rivals. Ben Zobrist homered, tripled and singled for Tampa Bay, which tagged Bartolo Colon early in one of the worst outings of his surprising comeback season. Evan Longoria had an RBI single and the Rays won the first of 11 straight games against New York and Boston, the two teams they trail in the AL East.

Lamenting the loss of a program

West Side Tech volleyball players are disappointed to suddenly be without a team. By VAN ROSE

The highlight of Nikki Mangan’s summer occurred recently when she spent four days attending the girls volleyball camp at Penn State University, where she got the opportunity to learn the game from members of the three-time defending national champion Nittany Lions. “It was one of the best experiences of my life,” said the senior at West Side Career & Technology Center in Pringle. “It was wonderful.” Mangan’s excitement quickly turned to disappointment, however, when she received a phone call during the final day of camp from a classmate, informing her that the upcoming volleyball season had been canceled, along with those of four other sports, by the school’s Joint Operating Committee. “I’m really disappointed,” said Mangan, whose parents spent $450 to send her to the Penn State camp. “Before I heard the news, I was excited to bring home things I had learned for my team and teach them how much better we could be.” Now, she may not get that chance, even though the committee’s June 27 decision must be ratified by the school’s five sending districts. The move was made in order to trim approximately $190,000 in cuts from the West Side Tech budget. But Mangan isn’t counting on a reversal. See TECH, Page 6B


Mountain Top’s Curtis Tokach tries to avoid the tag of Hanover’s Kyle Windt (7) at second base in a District 16 Little League major baseball tournament game Thursday. Mountain Top prevailed 3-2 in the winner’s bracket final to advance to the championship.

Mountain Top wins on walk-off RBI single

By RYAN KONOPKI For The Times Leader

DORRANCE TWP. — Having reached his pitch limit in the fifth inning with two outs and the go-ahead run on third base, Mountain Top’s Kyle Richards had no chance to pick up the win for his team on the mound. So he pulled it off at the plate instead. Richards knocked in the game-winning run with an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth inning and Mountain Top won the winner’s bracket final 3-2 against Hanover in the District

Getting in the swing


16 Little League major MOUNTAIN baseball tourTOP nament on Thursday. After Hanover ’s Tony MolHANOVER itoris retired the first two batters of the inning, Mike Leri walked and took second on a passed ball. Curtis Tokach singled to keep the inning alive. Leri advanced to third on the base hit, setting up Richards’ line drive over the head of the third baseman.


“The boy’s been on fire through the all-stars (tournament),” Mountain Top coach Rich LeRoy said. Richards allowed just two hits, struck out six batters and walked six before giving way to relief pitcher Lance Blass in a 2-2 tie. Blass struck out the only batter he faced in the fifth inning. Hanover was the first to score on Jordan Choman’s RBI single in the first. Mountain Top’s Connor Sheloski came up with an RBI single of his own, evening the score at one.

After Kyle Windt knocked in Anthony Vitale with a double in the third inning to put Hanover up one, Mountain Top evened the score again with Sam Majdic’s RBI single in the fourth. The Hanover squad threatened to take the lead again in the sixth inning when Jake Peters roped a leadoff single and advanced to second on Sean Hart’s sacrifice bunt. After moving to third on a fielder’s choice, Peters was 60 feet from putting his team ahead. See BASEBALL, Page 6B


Yanks’ Nova shines in Triple-A return By JOSH HORTON For The Times Leader


Cristie Kerr watches her drive on the 14th hole during the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open at the Broadmoor Golf Club on Thursday in Colorado Springs, Colo. Story, Page 7B.

MOOSIC — Ivan Nova reminded the Buffalo Bisons why he was the ace of the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre just one season ago. The right-hander allowed an early home run to Luis Figueroa, but nothing more as he led the Yankees to a 6-2 victory on Thursday night at PNC Field. “He had no three-ball counts all night,” Scranton/WilkesBarre pitching coach Scott Aldred said. “That’s as good as I’ve seen him pitch.” The Bisons wasted no time scoring. Nova struck out Figueroa struck to lead off the game, but Figueroa reached first on a wild pitch on the third strike.






Later in the bottom of the second, Luis Nunez hit a sacrifice fly to left field allowing Laird to score easily from third base to tie the game at 2-2 after two innings. The Yankees captured their first lead of the game in the bottom of the fourth. With one out in the inning, Jordan Parraz singled to center and then scored on an RBI double to left by P.J. Pilittere. The Yankees lead was 3-2 after four. “I’m just trying to have good at-bats and put the ball in play, hit the ball hard and hope they fall,” Parraz said. “Sometimes they fall and you get three hits, and sometimes they don’t.”

Nova retired the next two batters but Fernando Martinez roped a two-run home run to right field for a 2-0 lead. The Yankees offense awoke in the bottom of the second when Jorge Vazquez led off the inning with a double to right field. Brandon Laird then hit a double of his own, allowing Vazquez to score from third making it a 2-1 ball game. See YANKEES, Page 6B


Tempers are running high on diamond If you tune into baseball games to see the umpire strike back, the All-Star break couldn’t come at a worse time. July is already shaping up as one of the best months ever for ejections. Since the calendar turned over, 17 players, managers and coaches have been sent to cool off early, the same number that were tossed during the first weeks of April, May and June combined. The early leader in the clubhouse for best exit was Blue Jays pitcher Jon Rauch, who got a jump on things by shedding his jersey and hat even before stalking off toward the stalls. Then Tigers manager Jim Leyland did Rauch one better. Leyland was still standing in the dugout when he got tossed for the second time in nine days, shortening his trip to the showers to a matter of steps. “Like I said after that one, something is going on,” Leyland said Thursday. “It’s just not good when there’s that much tension around.” Even with another day to think things over, Leyland hasn’t figured out what’s causing all the pile-ups between the umps and players, managers and coaches. “In no way, shape or form am I blaming the umps. I want to be clear about that,” Leyland said in a phone call from Kansas City, where his Tigers were preparing to play the Royals. “We’ve all got to do better, especially with what happens right after a call somebody doesn’t like is made. For the good of the game, everybody needs to relax a little bit.” Blame it on rising temperatures, the replay videos available at every turn, a handful of Triple-A call-ups filling out the umpiring crews as vacation relief, or the mounting frustration some clubs express as their spring-training dreams circle the drain even before the season hits the midway point. Then again, as Angels manager Mike Scioscia suggested the other day, maybe it’s just “cyclical.” “I haven’t noticed anything that would point to it being anything but random,” he said. So far, Scioscia’s guess is as good as any other. According to MLB figures, 93 players, managers and coaches were ejected this season through June 30, less than the average of 102 over the same time period for the past half-dozen seasons. The totals have ranged between a low of 78 and a high of 116. “You’re never going to figure it out. And maybe if the umps got it right once in a while,” chuckled Hall of Famer and former manager Earl Weaver, “you wouldn’t be having all these problems.” Weaver acknowledged a moment later that he’s hardly impartial. He’s third on the managers’ list of all-time ejections with 97, trailing only Bobby Cox (131) and John McGraw (117). Weaver also watches only two dozen or so games a season from his home in Pembroke Pines, Fla., but he does have a theory. “Umps are human beings and they have to take a lot of guff, so to some extent, they’ve always been like that,” he said. “But from what I see, more and more they’re taking exception to just about everything. I had plenty run-ins, but it seems like the old guys were more secure about the job. It’s almost like the newer guys are being taught how to See LITKE, Page 6B

Five divisions for the two-year old pacing fillies top the Reynolds Stakes action for tonight, highlighting a strong fourteen race program. Among the talented gals hitting the racing surface is the locally stabled Arodasi. The Western Terror bred filly has won both her qualifiers leading up to her maiden voyage, with the most recent prep being the most impressive. Back on that June 27 qualifier, the Joe Pavia trained lady took the lead right from the wings of the car and never looked back, winning with ease in a solid 1:56 (pacing a final stanza in :27.3).

Jury selection for Clemens trial dragging along The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Prospective jurors screened Thursday for the Roger Clemens perjury trial were more critical of Congress for spending time investigating drugs in baseball than they were of the star pitcher on trial for lying to lawmakers about ever using them. The 11-time All-Star watched intently but didn’t speak as members of the jury pool faced intense questioning from the judge and lawyers from both sides. Nearly

as many were turned away on the second day as qualified to be considered for the panel that will eventually be seated, including two who were excused after they said they weren’t sure they could be fair because of their feelings about Congress. “Even members of Congress have lied to Congress and they have not been prosecuted,” said one of the panelists who was excused. Clemens faces six felony counts on accusations he lied to


Freeman’s HR carries Braves The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer, his fourth of the series, and Atlanta beat Colorado 6-3 on Thursday, its first four-game sweep of the Rockies in 18 years. Jason Heyward homered for the streaking Braves, who have won nine of 10 and 14 of 17. Freeman, the rookie first baseman, hit four homers and drove in seven runs in the series.

Jury selection moved slowly, and U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said as the afternoon wore on that it was clear the screening process wouldn’t be finished Monday as he hoped but more likely would take until Tuesday or Wednesday because the trial is in recess on Friday. He urged lawyers to move quicker. “Please be prudent in what you ask,” Walton said. Eighteen potential jurors were qualified by the end of the day. A total of 36 is needed to proceed.

Kingston/Forty Fort picks up win By ZACHARY DOLEIDEN For The Times Leader

WYOMING — Kingston/ Forty Fort defeated Wyoming/ West Wyoming 13-2 on Thursday in the District 31 Little League major baseball winner’s bracket final. Kingston/Forty Fort advances to the championship round. Wyoming/West Wyoming will host Back Mountain National at 2 p.m. Saturday in the elimination bracket final. It seemed things would go Wyoming/West Wyoming’s way when shortstop Brandon Cheney led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run that just cleared the fence in straightaway center field. Three straight wild pitches scored first baseman David McCue to extend the lead to 2-0. With two outs in the top of the second, Kingston/Forty Fort pulled within one after third baseman Mat Evans slapped an RBI single to shallow left field, scoring centerfielder Zach Sott from second. It appeared as though Wyoming/West Wyoming was poised to knot the game up again in the bottom of the frame. After a walk and a wild pitch moved the tying run to second base,

“(Our pitcher) was able to get stronger as the game went on.” —Sean Judge Kingston/Forty Fort coach

Kingston/Forty Fort starter Sean Judge motioned for a conference on the mound. After that, he calmed down took control, finishing the game with eight strikeouts and one earned run in 42⁄3 innings. “Sean wasn’t as sharp as usual in the beginning of the game,” Kingston/Forty Fort coach Sean Judge said. “His control was a bit off, but he was able to get stronger as the game went on.” As soon as Judge began to settle down on the mound, it seemed as though the offense sprung to life as well. With the bases loaded and no outs in the top of the fourth inning, McCue lined a single into right field that scored three runs. After Sott chopped an RBI single up the middle, Kingston/Forty Fort’s lead swelled to 5-2. After a quick 1-2-3 bottom of

the fourth, Kingston/Forty Fort went back to work at the plate, scoring six more runs, with two coming on a home run to center by Eric Latoski. “We came into the game wanting to keep the runs scored against us down, which we’ve been doing throughout the tournament,” coach Judge said. “We also wanted to get the bats going, which we were able to do against their starting pitcher, who was decent.” “The elements we had in the first three games of the tournament weren’t here today,” Wyoming/West Wyoming coach Jay Charney said. “We did well in the first inning and then just got shut down. Our defense can be a weak link, and it showed tonight.” Pacing Kingston/Forty Fort on offense was Sott, who finished 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI. McCue also finished the game with three RBI. For Wyoming/West Wyoming, shortstop Brandon Charney finished 3-for-3 with an RBI. The win extends Kingston/ Forty Fort’s record to 4-0 in the tournament, while Wyoming/ West Wyoming falls to 3-1.

Driver Kyle Busch rolls to 5th Truck win of season By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

SPARTA, Ky. — Kyle Busch picked up his fifth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win on Thursday night, roaring from the back row to win the 225-mile race at Kentucky Speedway. The NASCAR star was ordered to the rear of the field at the start of the race for missing driver introductions, but had little trouble picking his way through traffic. He held off Parker Kligerman during a green-white-checkered finish to win by 0.302 seconds. Brendan Gaughan was third, followed by Todd Bodine and Jason White. The win was Busch’s 29th in the series and No. 98 for his NASCAR career, putting him third all-time. He has 21 Sprint Cup victories and 48 in the Nationwide Series. The 26-year-old celebrated by doing a lengthy burnout before grabbing the checkered flag. Points leader Johnny Sauter was in contention for long stretches of the 150-lap race but went to the garage with less than 25 laps remaining after his truck broke its rear axle. He finished 24th but managed to extend his lead to 23 points over Cole Whitt as several of

The win was Busch’s 29th in the series and No. 98 for his NASCAR career, putting him third all-time. He has 21 Sprint Cup victories and 48 in the Nationwide Series.

the series regulars ran into trouble on the bumpy, quirky 1.5mile tri-oval. Whitt began the night 20 points behind Sauter but was caught up when Ron Hornaday Jr., who started the evening third in points, got loose coming out of Turn 4 and collected Whitt, Josh Richards and John King. Austin Dillon appeared primed to challenge Busch late but the hood on his No. 3 Chevrolet flipped onto his windshield, forcing him to pit. Busch qualified eighth but officials sent him to the back because he failed to take the stage for the driver introductions. Big deal. He moved up 16 spots in the first 10 laps and was in front by lap 61. He led 61 laps in all and drove away from a couple of chaotic moments behind him in the final stages.

The Wyoming Valley Conference Senior All-Star Baseball Game, sponsored by the GOALS Foundation and The Times Leader, will be played at 4:30 p.m. today at Artillery Park, home of Wilkes baseball.

Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children, with all proceeds from tickets sales and the 50-50 raffle going to the GOALS Foundation in Wilkes-Barre, which supports local youth sports. Forty-seven WVC seniors were selected and will be split up into East and West squads by high school.

YANKEES Continued from Page 1B

The Bisons had a great opportunity to tie or take the lead in the top of the eighth. Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre called on Logan Kensing to face Valentino Pascucci with two outs in the inning and the bases loaded Pascucci worked a full count, but eventually went down swinging on a 94-mph heater from Kensing. “Well, in a one-run game that strikeout is real big,” Yankees manager Dave Miley said. “Logan made the pitch when he had to, and we added some runs on in the bottom. It was definitely a big out for us.”

strained lower back. Before going on the disabled list, he was 1-4 with a 5.74 ERA in six starts. Colon (6-4) entered 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA in his past four starts, but he ran into trouble right away in his second outing since coming off the disabled list (strained left hamstring). The 38-year-old right-hander allowed five runs and a seasonhigh 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings, dropping to 9-3 in 19 starts against Tampa Bay. He also matched a season high with four walks. New York had won five straight home games and 11 of its last 13. Jeter, who came off the disabled list Monday in Cleveland, played his first home game since injuring his calf June 13, when

“When I first heard about it, I was surprised and in total shock,” she said. “I didn’t think they would do that to us, being that the other schools got to keep their sports – including Wyoming Valley West, where I came from.” Mangan is determined not to let the matter end her athletic career. “If volleyball isn’t reinstated,” she said, “I plan to take up kickboxing.” The other sports scheduled


Terry Tiffee extended the Yankees lead to 4-2 in the bottom of the eighth with an RBI double to center. Greg Golson scored from second on the play. Later in the eighth, Vazquez crushed a two-run homer well over the wall in left-center for a 6-2 advantage after eight. “He is feeling obviously much better,” Miley said. “He had a couple hits tonight and the homer. It’s nice to see we can use it. Not just the home run, but the power in the gaps.” Parraz finished 3-for-4 with three singles. Tiffee and Vazquez chipped in with two hits each. Nova (1-0, 2.35 ERA) was terrific in his first appearance since being sent down from New York. He was forced to leave the game after 72⁄3 innings when Zach Lutz

hit a sharp single off of Nova’s left foot. The Yankees righthander allowed just two runs on six hits, striking out 10 without allowing a walk. Kensing earned the four-out save for the Yankees. He struck out three and now has two saves since joining the Yankees on June 30. Mark Cohoon (2-5, 6.48) suffered the loss for Buffalo. He allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings for the Bisons. With last night’s win, the Yankees improved to 46-40 and the Bisons fell to 38-51. The IL North-leading Lehigh Valley IronPigs fell to the Rochester, pulling the Yankees 3.5 games from the division lead. NOTES •Jorge Vazquez will compete

he was six hits short of 3,000. Needing three to reach the plateau Thursday in the opener of a four-game series that takes the Yankees into the All-Star break, it appeared a few things were lined up in his favor. He began the night 5 for 9 (.556) in his career against Niemann, who allowed Jeter’s 2,721st career hit on Sept. 9, 2009, which tied Lou Gehrig for the Yankees record. The captain had three hits that night off Niemann, and he got off to another rousing start in this one. With a host of friends and family members in attendance, including his parents, Jeter smacked the first pitch he saw into left-center for a double, bringing a roar from the sellout crowd of 47,787. Charged-up fans rose to their feet and cameras flashed for each subsequent at-bat, but Jeter couldn’t come through again and finished 1 for 5. Zobrist tripled to start the

game, a ball that glanced off the glove of first baseman Mark Teixeira before Nick Swisher had trouble corralling it in the right-field corner. Longoria’s single put Tampa Bay on top against Colon, who had thrown 12 2-3 scoreless innings over his previous two starts. Zobrist led off the third with his 10th homer. Two outs later, Casey Kotchman doubled and scored on Upton’s single. Kotchman singled to open the fifth and Upton lofted the next pitch into the seats in left for his 14th home run, making it 5-0. Cano hit his 15th homer in the sixth, but that was all the offense the Yankees could muster. NOTES: Niemann is 3-0 in six career starts against the Yankees. He threw a season-high 114 pitches on a humid, 79-degree night. ... Rays RHP Wade Davis was placed on the 15-day DL because of a strained forearm, a day after he struggled in his lat-

est start. An MRI didn’t reveal anything serious. RHP Brandon Gomes was recalled from Triple-A Durham. ... DH Johnny Damon was held out after leaving Wednesday’s game with a bruised left hand when he was hit by a pitch from Twins LHP Francisco Liriano for the second consecutive plate appearance. Rays manager Joe Maddon said Damon might be able to play in the next couple of days. ... Longoria was the DH, giving his sore left foot a bit of a break. Sean Rodriguez started at 3B and made a sliding play on his knees to prevent a hit by Jeter in the fifth. ... Yankees closer Mariano Rivera said he was available to pitch, though he is skipping the All-Star game Tuesday because of soreness in his right triceps. Rivera hasn’t pitched since Sunday, when he blew a save against the Mets. A 12-time AllStar, Rivera also missed last year’s All-Star game because of injury.

to be dropped are boys volleyball, boys and girls basketball, and softball. Two other members of the volleyball team expressed disappointment that the sport apparently is being axed. “I think the committee voted too quickly,” said senior Nikki Davenport. “Some of the kids didn’t get a chance to offer their input. There have to be other ways they could have cut the budget. I think they could get it reinstated if they would sit down and talk it through.” Davenport said her family did its part to help keep costs down for the volleyball team. “My dad offered to purchase

the equipment necessary for volleyball, but the sports director turned him down,” Davenport said. Before enrolling at West Side CTC two years ago, Davenport was told by school officials that the girls volleyball program was there to stay, she said. “All I want to do (athletically) is play volleyball,” she said. “I’ve been waiting nearly a year for the new season to begin, but now I don’t have that to look forward to.” Davenport has the option of returning to Wyoming Valley West, but plans to stay put. “I can’t leave my friends,” she said.

Senior Jia Torres spent the last two seasons serving as a line judge for Titans’ volleyball games. This year she tried out for the team and made it. “This would have been my first year of playing volleyball,” Torres said. “I went to all the board meetings, and I didn’t think it was really possible for them to get rid of it. I just think they could have done things a different way.” According to Torres, volleyball was special at West Side CTC. “It’s a good experience, because everyone gets to play,” she said. “At other schools, you don’t have that.”

current rules allow it only on home-run calls, and there’s no chance of that being expanded anytime soon. Former manager Continued from Page 1B Joe Torre, now an MLB execbe mean in ump school or some- utive vice president, has been working on mending fences thing.” Increased use of instant replay between the umps and the clubs and a committee is weighing the might ease the tension, but

merits of instant replay against the time it would tack onto each game. But even if a decision to expand the use of instant replay was made, it would require amending the collective bargaining agreement. Negotiations are currently under way on a new

CBA, but the topic hasn’t even been seriously broached. Besides, players, managers and coaches are all over the map on the issue. “I think you could expand it, but to what degree, I don’t honestly know,” Leyland said. “I do not want to take human element

Mets’ Reyes on 15-day DL with strained hamstring

By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — Jose Reyes was placed on the15-day disabled list by the New York Mets on Thursday with a strained left hamstring that will keep him out of next week’s All-Star game. The shortstop injured his hamstring running to first base in the first inning against the New York Yankees on July 2. The move was retroactive to July 3. “I’m disappointed because I want to be on the field,” he told reporters before the Mets’ series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Reyes led the major leagues in hitting with a .354 batting average entering Thursday night, and has helped keep the Mets in contention in the NL East. The Mets made the decision on Reyes during a meeting Wednesday with him, manager Terry Collins, general manager Sandy Alderson, doctors and the training staff. “It came down to what’s most important, three games or the next 50?” Collins said. “This guy’s whole game is about his legs and what he’s ready to bring to the game.” Collins wanted to err on the

side of caution, even though he could have used Reyes as a pinchhitter on the final four games of the road trip. Ruben Tejada has replaced Reyes at short. “I know for a fact that sucker is going to hit a ball in the gap and he’s going to go for a triple,” he said. “I would not have been able to live with myself if he’d blown out between second and third.” Helping make the decision easier was the fact that the Mets have won four consecutive games since Reyes got hurt. “One of our concerns was if we have to disable this guy, what’s the energy going to be like on the club? The way we’ve played in the last four days, I think our guys realize they still have to pick it up,” Collins said. “His energy is still on the bench and it’s that great smile and everything he brings to this team is still there, it’s just not on the field.” Reyes will remain with the team for now, go to Phoenix for the All-Star game, and return to New York on Wednesday to resume treatment. After that, he would likely play in a few rehab games. Collins said Reyes could return in time for the Mets’ trip to Florida that begins July 22.

Penn State QB great Collins calling it quits

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — NFL quarterback Kerry Collins has announced his retirement after 16 years in the league. The 38-year-old who has played the past five seasons for the Tennessee Titans said in June he still wanted to play but said in a statement released by his agent Thursday that the past few months have brought “much introspection.” He says he found he still wants to play but no longer is willing to commit to the preparation needed to do so. Collins maintained a 55.8 completion percentage and threw for 40,441 yards and 206 touchdowns in 195 career games. He was the fifth overall pick by the Carolina Panthers in the 1995 NFL draft after playing at Penn State. He also played for the New Orleans Saints, New York Giants and Oakland Raiders. BASEBALL

Hall of Fame manager Williams dead at 82

LAS VEGAS — Hall of Fame manager Dick Williams, who led the Oakland A’s to two consecutive World Series titles, has died in Las Vegas. Williams’ friend, Bob Blum, said Williams died Thursday at his home. He was 82. Williams managed the Boston Red Sox, Oakland A’s, California Angels, Montreal Expos, San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners during a 21-year career. He was the second manager to win pennants with three different clubs. Williams won World Series titles with the A’s in 1972 and 1973, and an American League pennant with the Red Sox in 1967. He won a National League pennant with the Padres in 1984. HORSE RACING

Animal Kingdom still in recovery stage

ELKTON, Md. — Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom is recuperating in Maryland after surgery to repair a slab fracture in his left hind leg. The colt’s ownership, Team Valor International, said Thursday that Dr. Dean Richardson performed the surgery on June 30 and inserted two screws to compress the hairline fracture that was discovered with a CAT scan. The surgery was done at New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa. Richardson says the fracture would have healed on its own, but by using two screws instead of one, Animal Kingdom has the best chance to minimize any arthritis that might occur in his leg. Animal Kingdom was returned to his barn at Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, Md., last weekend. Plans call for the colt to begin walking in a few weeks. NBA

Lockout could land Williams in Turkey

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish team Besiktas says it is close to reaching a deal with NBA AllStar guard Deron Williams. Besiktas manager Murat Murtezaoglu told The Associated Press on Thursday that talks are under way with the New Jersey Nets player and U.S. Olympian. Coach Ergin Ataman told the state-run Anatolia news agency that a deal was close. Ataman says “our negotiations with this player are continuing. If he does come it would be an even greater transfer than that of Allen Iverson.” Iverson, the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2001, joined Besiktas after no NBA team offered him a contract. His time in Besiktas was cut short due to injury. The Nets say they can’t comment because of the lockout. Williams was supposed to earn $16.36 million with New Jersey next season.









First day halted at U.S. Women’s Open The Associated Press

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Instead of teeing it up when she comes back to the Broadmoor, Cristie Kerr’s next shot at the U.S. Women’s Open will be a blast out of the bunker on the front, right side of the seventh green. A difficult shot. But it could be worse. A quirky day of thunder and lightning — but only spits of rain — suspended play Thursday with only 25 players finished with their first round. It was a bad break on the opening day of the toughest test in golf — balky weather that figures to turn one of the most difficult weeks on the schedule into an even bigger grind. “That’s part of the gamble,” said Christina Kim, who will try to squeeze in 36 holes on Friday. The rain halted a mini streak

for Kerr, who had made two straight birdies to get into a tie for the lead at 2-under par with amateur Amy Anderson. After her second birdie, Kerr, who opened her round on the back, teed off into the right rough on No. 7, then hit her approach into the sand. That’s when the siren sounded and the players headed to the clubhouse. “At least I’ll get to practice some long bunker shots before we go out, so maybe it’s a good thing for me,” she said. Everything was relative on this day. After halting play, the USGA kept the players in the clubhouse for 2 1/2 hours, but with the thunder still rumbling and the radar blinking red, officials called play. There were 75 players on the course and 66 who hadn’t hit a shot. That means nearly half the field, including defending champion Paula Creamer and Yani Tseng, trying

to complete her career Grand Slam, could face 72 holes packed into three days of action on a typically rough U.S. Open setup. The Broadmoor is the first course to measure more than 7,000 yards for the U.S. Women’s Open — quite a haul, even at 6,700 feet in altitude. “We were actually sitting here debating, what’s the better draw?” Kim said. “Is it the one we have and we try to get 36 in in one day, or the one where you have 19 hours between shots in the same round?” Sarah-Jane Smith of Australia falls into the latter category, but only barely. After hearing her name announced on the first tee box, Smith striped her first shot down the middle of the fairway and started walking. Suddenly, the sirens blared and she made a U-turn back to the clubhouse.


“I’ve not teed off at all before,” she said. “But I’ve never hit one, then walked straight back in. I’m looking forward to it.” Then, pointing to her husband and caddie, Duane, she said, “He should have the yardage figured out by tomorrow morning.” For the record, Duane Smith says it will be a 150-yard shot when play resumes at 7:45 a.m. local time Friday. And while Smith is sleeping on one good shot, Anderson will join Kerr in sleeping on the lead. The second-team All-American from North Dakota State hit her approach on the par-5 ninth to tap-in range for her second birdie of the day. That put her at 2 under. “The first-day leader,” she said. “That’s way more than I could have imagined.”

Late run sents Blanks to Deere Classic lead SILVIS, Ill. — Kris Blanks birdied his final five holes Thursday to finish with an 8-under-par 63 and grab the first-round lead at the John Deere Classic. Blanks, who played the back nine first, rolled in a 25-foot putt on No. 5 to start his late run and capped it with an 11footer to leave him alone at the top after Canadian rookie Matt McQuillan and veteran Davis Love III had held that spot much of the day with 64s. Another late starter, Steve Marino, also came in with a 64. Mark Wilson, who has won twice on the tour this year, and Kyle Stanley were another stroke back, while Steve Stricker, seeking his third straight title in the tournament, was part of a large group at 66.

LISIEUX, France — Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway led a sprint to win the rain-splattered sixth stage of the Tour de France, while his countryman Thor Hushovd retained the yellow jersey on Thursday. The pack battled slippery roads and brisk winds over the hilly, 141-mile ride across northwest France from Dinan to Lisieux in Normandy — the longest stage in the race this year. Hagen, a sprint specialist with Team Sky, broke out of the barreling pack near the finish line and held on, jutting his arms in the air as he crossed for his first Tour stage victory. “I really surprised myself,” Hagen said. “Lots of people say that I’m a talented guy, so it’s nice to show it by winning a

stage.” Matt Goss of Australia was second, and Hushovd third. Overall, Hushovd retained a one-second lead over Cadel Evans of Australia, while Frank Schleck of Luxembourg was third, four seconds back. Threetime champion Alberto Contador, who lost time in a Stage 1 crash, was 34th overall, 1:42 behind. Hushovd and his team appeared to be wearying of the hard work of protecting the yellow jersey, which involves riding in the front to keep the race leader out of potential trouble. “The yellow jersey’s on my shoulders and I used up a lot of energy, so I’m a little bit tired,” Hushovd said. “That’s why I missed that little something today. I’m feeling good, but it’s been a hard and stressful week.” Hushovd has twice taken home the Tour’s green jersey awarded to the best sprinter. Philippe Gilbert of Belgium, who won the opening stage Saturday, said “everyone was a bit

out of breath” and that Hagen “devoured the last 150 meters; he’s impossible to catch when he’s like that.” Hushovd reveled in the Nordic country’s success. “Not bad, after all — it’s a good day for Norway,” said the Garmin-Cervelo veteran, who retained the yellow jersey for a fifth consecutive day. As for Hagen, he said: “Clearly he’s got a big future.” A string of breakaway riders sought to get a leg up but the pack eventually reeled them all in — the last ones getting caught within the last mile. Despite the rain and slippery conditions, the stage was marked by fewer crashes than a day earlier, when many riders including Contador and Britain’s Bradley Wiggins went down. Still, it was yet another bad day for the U.S. RadioShack team because American veteran Levi Leipheimer crashed with about 3 miles left and lost time in the title hunt.

BALTIMORE — John Mackey, the rugged Hall of Fame tight end and union president who later fought for stronger health benefits of retired players and struggled with dementia, has died. He was 69. Mackey’s wife notified the team about her husband’s death, Baltimore Ravens spokesman Chad Steele said Thursday. No official cause was given. Mackey played for the Baltimore Colts from 1963-71, and helped the team beat the Dallas Cowboys in the 1971 Super Bowl by catching a pass from Johnny Unitas after it deflected off two other players for a 75-yard touchdown. He also played for the San Diego Chargers in 1972, and finished his 10-year career with 331 catches for 5,236 yards and 38 touchdowns. Mackey’s efforts after his playing days were just as important as his performance on the field. An NFL labor agreement ratified in 2006 includes the “88 Plan,” named for Mackey’s number, 88. It provides up to $88,000 a year for nursing care or day care for explayers with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, or $50,000 for home care. “John Mackey is still our leader. As the president of the NFLPA, he led the fight for fairness with a brilliance and with ferocious drive,” union executive director DeMaurice Smith said. “His passion continues to define our organization and inspire our players. His unwavering loyalty

to our mission and his exemplary courage will never be forgotten.” The health care of former players has become a prominent issue in the negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement. “John Mackey was one of the great leaders in NFL history, on and off the field,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “He was a Hall of Fame player who redefined the tight end position. He was a courageous advocate for his fellow NFL players as head of the NFL Players Association. He worked closely with our office on many issues through the years. He never stopped fighting the good fight.” “John revolutionized the tight end position during his Hall of Fame career, and he laid the foundation on and off the field for modern NFL players,” Ravens general manager and fellow Hall of Fame tight end Ozzie Newsome said.


U.S. prepares to face Brazil in tough quarterfinal draw By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

DRESDEN, Germany — The Americans can read a draw as well as anyone else. To win a third World Cup title, they were going to have to see Brazil at some point. OK, so it’s happening earlier than they expected. But quarterfinals or the final, the Americans insist they’re ready for Brazil and dynamic playmaker Marta. Excited about it, too. “Obviously nobody wants to lose in a World Cup,” Lauren Cheney said Thursday. “We’re still smiling, we’re still enjoying this journey. Our belief in each other is unbelievable. No matter what happens, we believe we can make it and carry on. That’s what we did. From the coaching staff

on down, we all still have a lot of confidence.” The expectation all along has been that the top-ranked Americans would win their group, setting up a showdown with twotime defending champion Germany in the semifinals. Win that game, and the U.S. would play Brazil for yet another title — this one at the World Cup. The U.S. beat Brazil to win the gold medal at the last two Olympic Games; Brazil was runner-up at the 2007 World Cup after knocking the Americans out in the semifinals. But the Americans blew the gameplan with their 2-1 loss to Sweden on Wednesday night.

Nonfarm job growth

In thousands Maybe the economic slowdown really was just temporary. On Thursday, economists raised their 230 expectations for today’s all-important jobs report from the Labor Department after two encouraging signs about the job market. Economists say it 185 will show that employers added 90,000 jobs in June, up from 54,000 in May. Deutsche Bank is 140 est. more optimistic. Its economists raised their fore90 95 cast to 175,000 from 100,000. A report from payroll processor ADP that said hiring by private employers was stronger than expected in June 50 helped change their minds. A separate report J F M A M J said that first-time unemployment claims fell to a seven-week low. Source: FactSet

Wholesale sales growth likely slowed for the second straight month in May, hurt by the effects of Japan’s March earthquake. Auto makers and suppliers in Japan had to shut down after the earthquake, slowing production around the world. That will likely be only temporary, economists with IFR Markets say. They expect auto sales to continue to rebound in the second half of the year, and that will lift wholesale trade.

Jobs news lifts stocks

U.S. stocks advanced Thursday, lifting benchmark indexes near their 2011 highs, as encouraging data on jobs and retail sales suggested the economy was riding out a recent rough period. Investors were heartened by an estimate from payroll provider Automated Data Processing that private-sector jobs gained 157,000 in June, comfortably outstripping economists’ forecasts. Separate data showed that new claims for unemployment benefits fell by more than expected for the week ended July 2.


SCRANTON – The federal government on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the current and former owners of Mountain Top manufacturing facility seeking to recover more than $478,000 it spent to clean up two chemical spills in the early 1980s that contaminated wells on several properties. The suit claims two chemical spills that occurred in 1981 and 1982 at the plant now owned by Fairchild Semiconductor, locat-

ed in the Crestwood Industrial Park, contaminated the drinking water wells of five homes on South Mountain Boulevard. The plant was owned by General Electric at the time of the spill. According to the suit, the federal Environmental Protection Agency was notified in 2004 that the five wells had testified positive for the presence of trichloroethylene, or TCE, a chemical solvent that is widely used to remove grease from metal and textiles. EPA began a cleanup in Janu-

ary 2005 that included plugging existing wells, removing piping and installing water lines to connect the homes to the local municipal water supply. The agency incurred unreimbursed costs of $478,959. The suit was filed by the Environmental Enforcement Section of U.S. Department of Justice. It names as defendants Fairchild Semiconductor and the three previous owners of the plant – General Electric, Harris Corp. and Intersil Corp. John Sither, attorney for the

DOJ, could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Patti Olson, spokeswoman for Fairchild Semiconductor, said Fairchild and the other defendants have been negotiating with the federal government to resolve the issue for several years. She said the suit was filed as part of a pending settlement of the matter. Olson said she did not know the terms of the settlement for all parties, but Fairchild Semiconductor will not be required to pay out any money.

Shoppers make their way through a Scheels department store Wednesday in Springfield, Ill. Retailers are reporting robust sales as deep discounts on summer merchandise pulled in shoppers in June.

Retailers see strong sales in stores in June By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK — Colossal discounts enticed consumers to shop like it was 1999 last month. But higher prices ahead could cause the party to end soon. Warm weather and discounts of up to 80 percent on summer merchandise helped retailers deliver the best revenue gains since June 1999 in what’s typically the second-biggest shopping month of the year. But pressure on stores to pass along higher costs for everything from clothing and handbags to food has raised concerns that the momentum may not continue heading into the busy back-to-

school shopping season. Overall, revenue at major retailers rose 6.9 percent for June, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers’ tally of 28 retailers’ results. “Promotions were the clear driver this month, and consumers took advantage of some outstanding deals,” said Ken Perkins, president of research firm RetailMetrics LLC. “But that leaves a big question mark for July and the back-toschool season. Will shoppers be willing to spend full price?” Selina Bierra, 32, says she would not. The teaching assistant bought discounted items at Macy’s two weeks ago and a

pair of white pants for $10 at Old Navy on Thursday. But she snubbed another pair priced at $19.99 because she thought it could be discounted more. “Today, jobs aren’t guaranteed,” Bierra said. “My friend was telling me that her work was laying off people before the Fourth of July holiday.” The June gains were lopsided, with discounters and luxury brands benefiting the most and results for merchants serving the low- and middle-income shoppers lagging. The figures are based on revenue at stores opened at least a year, a measure considered a key indicator of a retailer’s health.

Olson said Wednesday that the firm has again extended the closure date until the end of 2012 due to an increased demand for its products.

WASHINGTON — JPMorgan Chase & Co. has agreed to pay $211 million after admitting one of its divisions rigged dozens of bidding competitions to win business from state and local governments, including many in Pennsylvania. J.P. Morgan Securities LLC made at least 93 secret deals with companies that handled the bidding processes in 31 states, the Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission said Thursday. Those deals allowed the bank to peek at competitors’ offers. Banks help municipalities invest the money they raise from bond offerings so they can earn interest before paying for projects. They compete by submitting to state and local governments the best yield they can offer. “We expect it to be a sub- “We expect it stantial num- to be a subber of Pennsyl- stantial numvania entities,” ber of Pennsaid Nils Frederiksen, a sylvania entispokesman in ties.” the state Office Nils Frederiksen of Attorney a spokesman in General. the state Office of Frederiksen Attorney General said the state is contacting government and nonprofit organizations that may be eligible to share in the settlement and a list of them will be made public after their claims are verified. “A lot of the entities don’t even know they’ve been victimized,” he said. “These entities didn’t actually lose money; they didn’t earn as much interest as they should have,” or paid higher fees than they would have had the process been truly competitive, he said. JPMorgan’s settlement covers complaints brought by the SEC, the Internal Revenue Service, bank regulators and 25 state attorneys general. Nearly a quarter of the money will go toward settling civil fraud charges brought by the SEC. A large portion will be divided among states, in part to pay restitution to victims of the fraud. JPMorgan agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department’s investigation in exchange for not being prosecuted, the agency said.

Déjà vu all over again

Want a sneak peek at how stocks will do after earnings reports get rolling on Monday? Look at last year. Just as they were in the summer of 2010, investors are nervous about the economy. And just as they did last year, analysts expect strong secondquarter profit reports to build confidence in stocks. Aluminum producer Alcoa on Monday will be the first major U.S. company to report its second-quarter results. Analysts expect the company to show earnings grew to 34 cents per share from 13 cents a year earlier. Analysts predict companies across the S&P 500 will report higher total earnings for the seventh straight quarter, according to FactSet. Last year, cost cutting helped S&P 500 companies boost their total earnings 41 percent. That helped calm worries about the economic recovery. The S&P 500 climbed 6.9 percent in July 2010, even though payrolls were shrinking, and growth in retail sales and manufacturing had slowed. The economy has picked up since then, but there is still some concern: Job growth has seesawed. Overall retail sales in May fell for the first time in 11 months. Manufacturing growth has slowed again since May. Still, stocks have recovered most of their losses from six weeks of declines that began in May. A big earnings season would build even more confidence. “We wouldn’t be surprised to see a parallel pattern this season,” with stocks rising in July, Barclays Capital strategists wrote in a report. Last year, stocks dropped in August. That could happen again. Government spending cuts appear inevitable with any agreement to raise the country’s borrowing limit by the Aug. 2 deadline. So any big cuts could hurt job growth and consumer confidence.

Today will be partly sunny with scattered showers and thunderstorms. If you have outdoor plans, keep an eye to the sky. These storms may pop up anywhere during the afternoon and early evening. The good news is that the storms will move east of Pennsylvania tonight allowing for clearing conditions and a good deal of sunshine this weekend. Saturday and Sunday look warm with afternoon temperatures in the middle and upper 80s.
