Time for 40-hour week?



Leaders thinking about longer work week for county employees. WIMBLEDON TITLE Roger Federer won his record-tying seventh Wimbledon title Sunday, beating Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 under a closed roof on Centre Court. The 17-time Grand Slam champion excelled once the roof was closed early in the third set, giving Murray little chance to end Britain’s 76-year wait for a homegrown men’s champion. Federer is now 17-7 in Grand Slam finals, including 7-1 at Wimbledon. Murray dropped to 0-4 in major finals, with three of those losses coming against Federer. 1B

ANTICOKE – After Shawn Hamilton and his half brother, Sawud Davis, fled a Plymouth apartment where police said they shot and killed three people and critically wounded a fourth person Saturday night in a drug deal, the pair visited a cousin recovering from a gunshot wound in the same hospital where the sole survivor was undergoing emergency medical treatment.

Topic for Tuesday A discussion on the 40-hour work week is scheduled during Tuesday’s council work session. Uniform working conditions with fair compensation will make county government more efficient, Williams said. “I have great hope our new county manager is moving in that direction, but I recognize that it will take a while to change the practices of the past,” Williams said. Union head Paula Schnelly, who represents 516 employees in three units, said county officials must be prepared to pay more if workers add five to 7.5 hours to their work week. “I wonder if the county realizes union employees are hourly – not salaried – and would expect just compensation for additional hours worked at their current hourly pay,” said Schnelly, of the American Federation of State, See COUNCIL, Page 10A

Luzerne County Council members will discuss switching all employees to a 40-hour work week – something taxpayers have been seeking for more than a decade. Most of the county’s roughly 1,550 employees work 32.5 or 35 hours per week. Union officials say they’re open to discussion, but changes must be negotiated and come with additional compensation. About 80 percent of the county workforce is unionized. Councilman Rick Williams Williams raised the issue, saying council should establish recommended work force standards, including uniform benefits. There’s no consistency because employees work under 11 different union conLawton tracts and policies governing non-union workers. County Manager Robert Lawton has the power to change the hours and benefits for the roughly 300 non-union workers, Schnelly but alterations for union employees must be negotiated in collective bargaining agreements subject to council ratification.

Voter ID laws could block thousands AP finds valid votes rejected by the laws are far greater than are the cases of fraud. By MIKE BAKER Associated Press

When Edward and Mary Weidenbener went to vote in Indiana’s primary in May, they didn’t realize that state law required them to bring government photo IDs such as a driver’s license or passport. The husband and wife, both approaching 90, had to use a temporary ballot that would be verified later, even though they knew the people working the polling site that day. Unaware that Indiana law obligated them to follow up with the county election board, the Weidenbeners ultimately had their votes rejected — news to them until informed recently by an Associated Press reporter. Edward Weidenbener, a World War II veteran who had voted for Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential contest, said he was surprised by the rules and the consequences. “A lot of people don’t have a photo ID. They’ll be automatically disenfranchised,” he said. As more states put in place

strict voter ID rules, an AP review of temporary ballots from Indiana and Georgia, which first adopted the most stringent standards, found that more than1,200 such votes were tossed during the 2008 general election. During sparsely attended primaries this year in Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee, the states implementing the toughest laws, hundreds more ballots were blocked. The numbers suggest that the legitimate votes rejected by the laws are far more numerous than are the cases of fraud that advocates of the rules say they are trying to prevent. Thousands more votes could be in jeopardy for this November, when more states with larger populations are looking to have similar rules in place. More than two dozen states have some form of ID requirement, and 11 of those passed new rules over the past two years largely at the urging of Republicans who say they want to prevent fraud. Democrats and voting rights groups fear that ID laws could suppress votes among people who may not typically have a driver’s license, and disproportionately affect the elderly, poor

and minorities. While the number of votes is a small percentage of the overall total, they have the potential to sway a close election. Remember that the 2000 presidential race was decided by a 537vote margin in Florida. A Republican leader in Pennsylvania said recently that the state’s new ID law would allow Romney to win the state over President Barack Obama. Supporters of the laws cite anecdotal cases of fraud as a reason that states need to do more to secure elections, but fraud appears to be rare. As part of its effort to build support for voter ID laws, the Republican National Lawyers Association last year published a report that identified about 400 election fraud prosecutions over a decade across the entire country. That’s not even one per state per year. ID laws would not have prevented many of those cases because they involved vote-buying schemes in local elections or people who falsified registrations. Election administrators and academics who monitor the issue said in-person fraud is rare because someone would have to impersonate a registered voter and risk arrest. A 2008 Supreme


Election officials check the photo identification card of a voter in Cimarron, Kan., in January.

Court case drew detailed briefs from the federal government, 10 states and other groups that identified only nine potential impersonation cases over the span of several years, according to a tally by the Brennan Center at New York University. Michael Thielen, executive director of the Republican lawyers group, said its survey was not comprehensive and he believes vote fraud is a serious problem. “Most of it goes unreported and unprosecuted,” he said.

Several election administrators, even those who support ID laws as a barrier to potential fraud, said the rejected ballots in their counties appeared to be legitimate voters who simply did not fulfill their ID obligations. Indiana, Georgia and Tennessee require that voters provide a photo ID at the polls. Failing that, voters can use a temporary ballot that can be verified later, when they must meet with local elections administrators to sort out the matter. Pennsylvania is putting a similar law in place for the November election. Kansas has comparable rules. Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin are moving in that direction of having rules set for this year if they survive court challenges and federal approval. Virginia had a rule allowing voters without proper ID to sign an identity statement; a false claim could make them subject to felony punishment. Under a new law awaiting final approval from the Justice Department, voters who do not bring proper ID, which doesn’t necessarily have to have a photo, must use a temporary ballot and later provide ID to the local election board.

Groups ask for delay in Pa.’s voter ID law The groups — the Committee State spokesman immediately of Seventy, the Advancement rejects request of six Project and the Pennsylvania organizations before election. chapters of Common Cause, the

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Six organizations are calling on Gov. Tom Corbett to ask state lawmakers to delay implementation of Pennsylvania’s new voter ID law, which requires people to show photo identification when they go to the polls beginning this November, but a state spokesman immediately rejected the request.

League of Women Voters and the American Civil Liberties Union as well as the Philadelphia AFLCIO — cited the state’s announcement last week that more than 758,000 of the 8.2 million registered voters in the commonwealth lack the most commonly used photo ID cards provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Executive Director Barry Kauffman of Common Cause Pennsylvania said he was con-

cerned that state lawmakers who passed the voter ID law in March relied upon inaccurate information that 99 percent of voters already had the necessary ID, only to find that 9.2 percent of voters lack PennDOT driver’s licenses or non-driver photo ID cards. “We are urging Gov. Corbett to go to the leaders of the General Assembly with a bill to delay implementation of the voter ID law for at least one year, so all the state’s 8.2 million voters can be properly educated . . . and people who do not have a photo ID for voting can have ample time to obtain one,” said Ellen Mattleman

Kaplan, vice president and policy director for the Committee of Seventy. The ACLU and the Advancement Project are providing legal support for a constitutional challenge to the law, with a hearing in state court slated for July 25. The Philadelphia Inquirer says the Corbett administration immediately rejected the request for a delay. “Our goal since the law was signed is to reach out to all voters to make them aware of the law so all eligible voters are able to get ID if needed and cast ballots in November,” said Ron Ruman, a

spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of State. Ruman said the governor didn’t have authority on his own to delay the photo ID requirement and would not ask the Republican-controlled Legislature to change the law. “The administration supports the law,” Ruman told the newspaper in an email, “because it protects the integrity of every vote and voter by giving Pennsylvania for the first time a reliable way to verify the identity of each voter at the polls. This will help detect and deter any illegal voting.”

Crowd turns out Report could go beyond Sandusky to aid a fighter

Event helps cancer victim By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE -- Hundreds crowded into Rodano’s Pizza on Public Square on Sunday for a fundraiser for Dawna Yeager Estock, who is battling cancer. Estock, 48, of Larksville, has fought an eight-year battle with breast cancer. She said the cancer recently spread to her lungs, which entailed additional intensive treatment and additional medical costs. Estock said that even though she has excellent medical coverage, she has been unable to keep up with the extensive co-payments that are part of her current health care plan. “I’ve been receiving treatment at Cancer Treatment Centers of American in the Philadelphia area,” said Estock. “You’ve seen the commercials on TV, well they’re all true. It’s all about the patient. I

love them. They make you feel at home; like family.” “The money raised today is going to help me pay some of the costs of my treatment,” said Estock. “I’m receiving the best care possible and I plan to be here a long time. I’m not going anywhere.” The afternoon event included a Chinese auction, instant bingo and raffle that featured a number attractive items and services donated by local business. “I’m completely in awe of the show of support today,” said Sandy Yeager, Dawna’s mother and event co-organizer. “The outpouring of love for Dawna is overwhelming.” Yeager said she wanted the thank the more than 300 people who came out for Dawna on Sunday as well as the sponsors and businesses who donated goods and merchandise for the event.

Penn State football brawl attracts investigators five years after it happens.

By JEREMY ROEBUCK and SUSAN SNYDER The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELHIA -- In April 2007, more than two dozen Penn State football players forced their way into an off-campus party and started a brawl in which several people were injured, resulted in criminal charges against six team members, and, eventually, convictions for two. On campus, the incident sparked another fight, one pitting athletic department officials against university administrators in a debate over how best to punish those involved. In the end, football won out. None of the charged players missed a game. That incident five years ago has attracted new interest from investigators, led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, probing PSU’s

accusations and later lied about it to a grand jury. The fallout also led to the ouster of Paterno and Penn State President Graham B. Spanier. Over the past seven months, sources familiar with the investigation said, investigators have interviewed more than 400 including current and former trustees and all levels of athletic department personnel. Earlier this year, the Freeh group gave state prosecutors copies of a previously undisclosed email exchange between Spanier, Curley and Schultz that indicated the three debated and ultimately decided against reporting a 2001 allegation of abuse against Sandusky. Their search has also turned up legal billings from the university’s outside counsel that year for consultations on Penn State’s legal obligations in reporting alleged abuse, the sources said. But the focus on Spanier, Paterno and the university’s response

role in the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. According to sources interviewed by the Freeh group in recent months, investigators asked about that fight, the response of Joe Paterno, and whether university officials had intervened in any other athlete disciplinary crises. Their questions suggest Freeh’s final assessment will delve well beyond the Sandusky case and into the influence that figures such as Paterno exerted on university decision-making. Penn State president Rodney Erickson and others have said they expect a report before the end of this month. Trustees hired Freeh in November to investigate the university’s handling of previous allegations against Sandusky, who was convicted last month on 45 counts of child sex abuse. Athletic director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, a former vice president in charge of the campus police , await trial on charges that they did not report one of those



Spinning a web of wealth, ‘Spiderman’ makes $140M in film debut By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES — Your new friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has spun himself a $65 million opening weekend and $140 million in his first six days at U.S. theaters. Overseas, Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” added $129.1 million,

raising its international total to $201.6 million and worldwide haul to $341.2 million since it began rolling out a week earlier in some foreign markets. The movie started off as a smaller domestic moneymaker than the previous three Spidey films, but it laid to rest objections that it was

too soon to relaunch the superhero franchise. The new origin story for the Marvel Comics web-slinger comes just five years after “Spider-Man 3,” Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi’s final movie in a series that shattered box-office records. The previous weekend’s No. 1

film, Universal’s teddy-bear comedy “Ted,” fell to second-place with $32.6 million, raising its domestic total to $120.2 million. Among new releases, “Savages” opened at No. 4 with a solid $16.2 million weekend, also for Universal.Paramount’sconcertfilm“Katy Perry: Part of Me” failed to pack in

Teacher-rating plan facing first tests Publicly released teacher grades likely some way off. Changes address criticisms. By MARK GUYDISH

You want to see “brain sweat.” If you must argue, you want to “pick the things you are willing to die on the hill for.” You won’t find such colorful

metaphors in the official descriptions of the new state teacher evaluation system signed into law last week. The paperwork invokes eye-glazing jargon like “utilize integrated systems,” and “effectively assesses the lesson’s effectiveness.” But talk to supporters of the first change in Pennsylvania’s teacher evaluation system in decades and zeal creeps out. “Gone will be the days of

one teacher standing in front, giving the same lecture to all kids,” West Side Career and Technology Director Nancy Tkatch said. “Kids want to be challenged.” While some parents and many students may salivate at the idea of learning how their teachers score in the complex system, that opportunity is somewhere in the future, if it happens at all. “The department is consid-

ering options to make information available to the public,” is all Department of Education Spokesman Tim Eller would say in an email. The intent is not to shame weak teachers, but to make them better. “There is no hidden agenda. The goal is to improve teacher effectiveness,” said Luzerne Intermediate Unit Director of Curriculum Filomena Covert. “The goal is not to ‘get’ them;

it’s to get best practices into the classroom.” Being phased in Covert has spearheaded most local training during pilot programs testing the new evaluation and teacher observation system before full deployment in 2013-14. Phase I of the pilot involved a handful of schools statewide See TEACHERS, Page 7A

Motorcyclists support skier’s Paralympic effort By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent


XETER -- A large group of riders came out on Sunday to participate in the 6th Annual Ride Motorcycle Run to benefit local athlete Stephanie Jallen. Jallen, of Harding, was born with one arm and one leg. Despite her physical challenge, Stephanie is a world-class snow-skier and is currently training to compete for a spot NIKO J. KALLIANIOTIS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER on the U.S. team for the 2014 Stephanie Jallen gets on a bike in Exeter to begin Sunday’s motorcyParalympic Team Games in cle run to benefit the skier’s goal to participate in paralympic events. The bike was operated by Dave Corby. Russia.

According to event organizers, proceeds from Sunday’s event will go to finance the cost of Jallen’s ongoing training and equipment. The ride started out from St. Barbara’s Church grounds on Memorial Street. “This is our sixth year, but our first at this location in Exeter,” said Stephanie’s mother, Deb Jallen. “We’re absolutely thrilled with the turn-out and the weather. It couldn’t be any better.” Deb Jallen said this year’s event

was co-organized by family friend Tony Callio, who helped secure the location as well as the services of Marianacci’s Italian Restaurant in West Wyoming as this year’s event caterer. More than 300 bikers participated in the 60-mile ride along Route 92 though Harding, the Back Mountain and Harveys Lake. The event featured a number of vendors plying motorcycle accessories and leather goods, as well as a face-painting and game stands. Mu-

sical entertainment was provided by local acts Iron Cowboy, Eddie & the Dreamers and Breakdown Jimmy. “We always come out to support good causes like this,” said Lonny Trusedale of Moosic, who came out with a group of friends. “It’s just a way to give a little something back and at the same time enjoy a great ride.” Deb Jallen thanked all the local sponsors and volunteers who contributed to make the event such a success.

HANOVER TWP. -- The sign greeting visitors at Cori’s Place reads “Helping Individuals with Disabilities Create a Better Life.” On Sunday, the organization took time to celebrate its 10-year anniversary. Karen Trzcinski, 29, Wilkes-Barre, has been a participant throughout the facility’s history. She especially loves cooking and bowling out-trips during the summer program. “I am very grateful that we were able to find such a wonderful place,” said her mother, Betsy Trzcinski. “The facilities and the staff are amazing.” Cori’s Place’s beginnings have their roots in George and Therese Gwilliam’s desire to find productive, pleasant activity for their daughter, Cori, after her graduation from high school. They feared that she would turn into a “couch potato.” Cori, now 31, underwent numerous surgeries to correct a life-threatening birth defect of an abnormal passageway between her trachea and esophagus. Instead of being content with what was available in the area, the Gwilliams decided to create a new place, “a place for Cori” and others like her to move toward achieving their potential. “This isn’t simply a day program or somewhere for quiet gathering,” said George Gwilliam. “Cori’s Place is a dynamic program with opportunity for adults to develop their potential. Sunday’s celebration and the dedication of the facility’s new kitchen was held in memory of Dr. Charles Minkoff, who fell in love with Cori’s Place and its participants. George Gwilliam remembers the many hours that Minkoff spent with participants and his special fondness for cooking with them. He also had a talent for story telling which resident and staff enjoyed immensely. Cori’s Place displays a spirit of community and of family.

Airport Day is time to take to the skies Valley Aviation will host events at the Wyoming Valley Airport. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WYOMING – Ah, summer. Sunshine, cookouts and a chance to see the Wyoming Valley from the air. That’s what residents have to look forward to on Saturday, when Valley Aviation hosts its twice-yearly Airport Day at the Wyoming Valley Airport. “It’s a good day to bring the

public together and let the county know what’s going on (at the airport),” Valley Aviation coowner Joe Scrobola said.

Egypt leader recalls parliament Move made by President Mohammed Morsi comes in defiance of military. By HAMZA HENDAWI Associated Press


Devastation left behind in Russia

CAIRO — Egypt’s Islamist president fired the first volley Sunday in his battle with the nation’s powerful generals, calling on the Islamist-dominated parliament to reconvene despite a military-backed court ruling that dissolved it.

A week into his presidency, the surprise move by Mohammed Morsi threatened to Morsi plunge the country into a new bout of instability and violence, nearly 17 months after the ouster of authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak. “This is the start of a battle that has for some time been

brewing,” said Negad Borai, a prominent rights lawyer and activist. “In this battle, the military may be the weaker opponent since it is up against an elected president.” Morsi’s decree appeared to take the generals off guard. In the first sign of an imminent crisis, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces held an “emergency meeting” shortly after it was announced. The official Middle East News Agency said the generals met to “review and discuss the consequences” of

the decision. The Supreme Constitutional Court, the tribunal that dissolved the legislature last month, was to meet today to discuss the issue. Morsi, a member of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood, which has long been at odds with the military, also called for new parliamentary elections within 60 days of the adoption of a new constitution, which is not expected before late this year. The dual moves were seen as a significant step by a leader

members, on a day where a total of 29 people died from roadside bombs and insurgent attacks. NATO said the blast was caused by an improvised explosive device but provided no further details about the attack and did not identify the dead service members. The statement said NATO’s policy is to allow “national authorities” to give details about the soldiers. In addition to the six NATO deaths, bombs and attacks killed 16 Afghan civilians, five policemen and two members of the U.S.-led coalition in southern Afghanistan, Afghan and NATO authorities said.

Zimmerman at safe house The neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin is in a safe house that is being protected by his security team. George Zimmerman was released Friday after posting bail for the second time on a second-degree murder charge. His attorney said Sunday he was in Seminole County in central Florida. Some of Martin’s supporters have been angry Zimmerman was not arrested until 46 days after the February shooting, and Zimmerman has received death threats. He was released from jail after his defense fund helped him post 10 percent of the $1 million bond. A judge revoked his previous $150,000 bond last month when prosecutors presented evidence that Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about how much money they had. TRIPOLI, LIBYA

Islamists’ chances dimming Libya’s first nationwide elections in nearly five decades brought hints Sunday of an Arab Spring precedent: Western-leaning parties making strides over Islamist rivals hoping to follow the same paths to power as in neighbors Egypt and Tunisia. While final results from Saturday’s parliamentary election could still be days away under a two-tier selection system, unofficial and partial counts from Libya’s biggest cities suggested liberal factions were leading the Muslim Brotherhood and allies in a possible first major setback to their political surge following last year’s uprisings. INDIANAPOLIS, IND.

Feds oppose abortion law Indiana’s decision to deny Planned Parenthood Medicaid funds because it performs abortions denies women the freedom to choose their health care providers, a federal hearing officer said. The state had asked the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in Chicago to reconsider its June 2011 ruling that found changes in Indiana’s Medicaid plan unacceptable. But a hearing officer recommended in documents released Friday that a CMS administrator uphold the agency’s initial decision. The changes to Indiana’s plan resulted from a 2011 law that would have made the state the first to deny the organization Medicaid funds for general health services, including cancer screenings. The law has been on hold while the dispute works its way through the courts.

whose authority was called into doubt by the generals’ power grab in the days before and after the June 16-17 presidential runoff. Last month, the then-ruling military generals dissolved the legislature after the Supreme Constitutional Court, the country’s highest tribunal, ruled that a third of its members had been elected illegally — a move that angered the Brotherhood and poisoned the atmosphere ahead of the military’s handover of power to Morsi on June 30.

Heat wave eases

Midwest and East Coast getting some relief By BRETT ZONGKER and RON TODT Associated Press


HILADELPHIA — The heat that blanketed much of the U.S. began to ease up from unbearable to merely very hot Sunday as temperatures from the Midwest to the East Coast dropped from highs above 100 degrees down to the 90s. Cooler air swept southward in the eastern half of the country, bringing down some temperatures by 15 or more degrees from Saturday’s highs, which topped 100 in cities including Philadelphia, Washington, St. Louis, Indianapolis and Louisville, Ky. For many areas, the cooler temperatures were ushered in by thunderstorms that knocked out power to thousands. In New Jersey, a line of strong, fast-moving storms knocked out power to nearly 70,000 on Saturday night. The heat of the past several days has also been blamed for at least 35 deaths across the country. A 4-monthold girl died and a 16-month-old girl was hospitalized in suburban Indianapolis after both were found trapped in cars during 105-degree heat Saturday. Deaths have also been reported by au-

thorities in Illinois, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin. The heat caused highways to buckle in Illinois and Wisconsin, officials said. In Maryland, investigators said heat likely caused rails to kink and led a commuter train to partially derail Friday. No one was injured. To stay cool, Americans tried famil-

iar solutions — dipping into the pool, going to the movies and riding subways just to be in air conditioning. Even the beach offered no respite. Atlantic City, N.J., home of the famed boardwalk, set a temperature record Saturday of 100 degrees. Working outdoors in New Jersey on Saturday was Freddie Jackson, a 48year-old Toms River man who sells roses by the dozen from his car, which was parked in a heavily shaded area off a major highway. Clad in shorts, sandals and a white T-shirt, Jackson said he would stay out as long as he felt safe — and business was good. “I do this mainly to make a few extra bucks, so I’m not going to stay if I started feeling (the heat),” he said.

WASHINGTON — Thousands of people around the country whose computers were infected with malicious software more than a year ago faced the possibility Sunday night of not being able to get online after midnight EDT. At 12:01 a.m. EDT, the FBI had planned to shut down the Internet servers set up as a temporary safety net to keep infected computers online for the past eight months. The problem began when international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of more than 570,000 infected computers around the world. When the FBI went in to take down the hackers late last year, agents realized that if they turned off the malicious servers being used to control the computers, all the victims would lose their Internet service. In a highly unusual move, the FBI set up the safety net. The bureau brought in a private company to install two clean Internet servers to take over for the malicious servers so that people would not suddenly lose their Internet. The FBI arranged for a private company to run a website — — as a place where computer users could go to see if their computer was infected and find links to other computer security business sites where they could find fixes for the problem. Tom Grasso, an FBI supervisory special agent, said many Internet providers have plans to try to help their customers. Some may put technical solutions in place that will correct the server problem. It they do, the Internet will work, but the malware will remain on victims’ computers and could pose future problems. Other Internet providers are simply braced for the calls to their help lines. By today, if you can’t read this online, those customer support lines will be your only solution.

Oscar winner Ernest Borgnine dies at 95 Actor who won in 1955 for “Marty” starred in “McHale’s Navy.” The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Ernest Borgnine, the beefy screen star known for blustery, often villainous roles, but who won the best-actor Oscar for playing against type as a lovesick butcher in “Marty” in 1955, died Sunday. He was 95. His longtime spokesman, Harry Flynn, told The Associated Press that Borgnine died of renal failure at CedarsSinai Medical Center with his wife and children at his side. Borgnine, who endeared himself to a generation of Baby Boomers with the

1960s TV comedy “McHale’s Navy,” first attracted notice in the early 1950s in villain roles, notably as the vicious Fatso Judson, who beat Frank Sinatra to death in “From Here to Eternity.” Then came “Marty,” a low-budget film based on a Paddy Chayefsky television play that starred Rod Steiger. Borgnine played a 34-year-old who fears he is so unattractive he will never find romance. “The Oscar made me a star, and I’m grateful,” Borgnine told an interviewer in 1966. “But I feel had I not won the Oscar I wouldn’t have gotten into the messes I did in my personal life.” Those messes included four failed marriages, including one in 1964 to

singer Ethel Merman that lasted less than six weeks. But Borgnine’s fifth marriage, in 1973 to Norwegian-born Tova Traesnaes, endured. Although still not a marquee star until after “Marty,” the roles of heavies started coming regularly after “From Here to Eternity.” Among the films: “Bad Day at Black Rock,” “Johnny Guitar,” “Demetrius and the Gladiators,” “Vera Cruz.” From 1962 to 1966, Borgnine — a Navy vet himself — starred in “McHale’s Navy” as the commander of a World AP FILE PHOTO War II PT boat with a crew of misfits Ernest Borgnine acts in a scene for and malcontents.

Dems want Romney to explain his accounts GOP presidential contender is being asked to answer for offshore bank accounts.

By STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — Mitt Romney privately raised millions of dollars from New York’s elite on Sunday, as Democrats launched coordinated attacks against the presumptive Republican presidential contender, intensifying calls for him to explain offshore bank accounts and release several years of tax returns. The line of attack, dismissed by the Romney campaign as an “unfounded character assault,” follows new reports that raise questions about Romney’s personal wealth, which could exceed $250 million. President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is expected to push the strategy throughout the coming week, underscoring its desire to portray Romney as disconnected from the middle-class voters he needs to win the presidency. “He’s the first and only candidate for the president of the United States with a Swiss bank account, with tax shelters, with tax avoidance schemes that involve so many foreign countries,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” He’s one of several high-profile Democrats who spoke out on the Sunday morning news shows. Romney may have unintentionally helped the Obama campaign. Republican donors driving Mercedes, Bentleys — and in one case a candy red 2013 Ferrari Spider — crowded into a series of closed-door Romney fundraisers in the Hamptons, New York’s exclusive string of waterfront communities on Long Island’s South Shore. Wall Street bankers and brokerage house chiefs, among others, make the area their weekend playground. Romney’s Hamptons swing follows a weeklong vacation at his lakeside vacation home in New Hampshire. Voters are split on whether they trust Romney or Obama more to run the nation’s economy, but a majority says that Obama better understands their con-

cerns. The Hamptons crowd, however, saw things differently. “I think he’s a plain-talking guy,” said Peter Cohen, the former Shearson Lehman Brothers chief who now heads his own investment banking firm, as he chewed a cigar in his black Range Rover outside a Romney fundraiser expected to generate $3 million. Romney’s day concluded at the Southampton estate of billionaire industrialist David Koch, where donors were asked to give $50,000 per person or $75,000 per couple. The event attracted protesters like Robert Shainwald, a 65-year-old retired teacher. “Romney has no idea what the working person’s daily concerns are. How could he?” Shainwald said as he waved a sign offering free vegetables to anyone who wasn’t a billionaire. Romney would be among the nation’s richest presidents if elected. He made his fortune at Bain Capital, a Boston-based private equity firm that has become a key argument for his White House bid. He hasn’t drawn a regular paycheck in more than a decade, however, and has instead lived off a series of investments. But Romney has refused to release more than two years of tax returns that would outline those investments, breaking from a precedent set by his father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, who released 12 years of his tax returns when he sought the presidency a generation ago. And an Associated Press report recently raised questions about a previously undisclosed Bermuda-based company included in Romney’s portfolio until the day before he became Massachusetts governor. Obama adviser Robert Gibbs said Romney could easily clear up questions about his personal finances if he simply released “a series of years” of returns. “Mitt Romney’s father was the pioneer for releasing a series of tax returns,” Gibbs said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The best way to figure out if Mitt Romney is complying with American tax law is to have him release more of his tax returns.”

in 2010-11; Phase II expanded to 115 “local education agencies” in 2011-12, including seven local districts, the LIU and West Side CTC. The state has long required teacher evaluations, but details were left up to districts. Some might do extensive observations; others might drop into a classroom for a few minutes. What an observer looked for was also decided by the districts. A teacher then received one simple rating: Satisfactory or unsatisfactory. Critics say the old system has become meaningless. “There’s obviously something wrong when 99 percent of teachers are rated satisfactory yet more than 30 percent of students can’t read at grade level,” said Joan Benso, president of the Pennsylvania Partnership for Children. The advocacy group supports the new system. New criteria, designations The new system rates teachers as unsatisfactory, needs improvement, proficient or distinguished. It also uses – for the first time in state history – student test results to rate a teacher. Half the final rating comes from the observation, the other half from a wide mix of “student achievement” measures including a school’s overall success on state tests, improvement in state test results for students taught by the teacher, and other measures chosen by the district such as national tests, student projects and student portfolios that show a body of work over several years. The new observation system grades a teacher in four “domains” of effective teaching. Each domain has up to six areas of expertise, and each area has definitions of what lands a teacher in one of the four final ratings from unsatisfactory to distinguished. It’s all spelled out in “rubrics,” edu-speak for a list of standards the teacher must meet. The teachers see the rubrics in advance, discuss them with the observer, and rate themselves. The administrator separately rates the teacher on the same rubric. The trick, Covert said, is that both must use “evidence-based statements” in justifying the rating they give. “It’s not enough to say the classroom was conducive to learning,” Tkatch explained. “They have to say, for example, how the desks were arranged, how the children and materials were set up.” Getting administrators and teachers to be specific has been “the hardest part of this,” Covert said. Yet it’s also the most important, because when teacher and observer disagree on a rating, facts can sway, opinions can’t. “We tell them ‘talk about the areas you are willing to die on the hill for,’ ” Covert said. For Covert, one of those areas is student engagement: Sitting and taking notes doesn’t count. “There is a difference between time on task and being engaged,” Covert said. “It’s the difference between sitting in the seat quietly versus brain sweat.” While Phase II of the pilot program reached 115 districts, that doesn’t mean it reached a lot of teachers. Wilkes-Barre Area Superintendent Jeff Namey said the new system was used last year in two schools, with 10 teachers in each school. Hazleton Area

MANY MEASURES OF TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS The teacher evaluation system being phased in by the state uses numerous ways to rate teacher effectiveness. Half of the final rating comes from observing the teacher’s work, judging four “domains” of effectiveness; half from various gauges of student learning.

Teacher-specific data (15 percent of total evaluation) The state looks at “value added assessment” of state tests for student “cohorts” taught by the teacher over three years. The idea is to measure student improvement rather than proficiency. 3.

Along with the criminal charges filed in the brawl case,15 players were found to have violated the student code of conduct. Only four were suspended. All were allowed to return for fall practice. Paterno made the whole team clean Beaver Stadium after a

Vicky Triponey, then vice president of student affairs, balked at theheadcoach’sresponse.Astop administrator over the university’s judicial conduct board, her office should have had authority to determine the players’ punishment, she said at the time. She has previously accused Paterno of granting preferential treatment and interfering with her investigation. But in 2007, her objections were shot down. Triponey, who declined comment for this story, was interviewed extensively by Freeh’s investigators and gave them several e-mails she kept after resigning shortly after the brawl, according to sources.

The week she left her job, in September 2007, the university changed its policy to allow coaches and club advisers - not the judicial affairs board - to determine whether students facing school sanctions should be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities.

Canada’s MPs in dark while policing Afghans


HE MILITARY Police Complaints Commission’s report recently made public – the latest chapter in the Afghan detainees controversy – makes an important point, one that ought to have been obvious: Canadian military police officers on foreign missions should be enabled by their superior officers to understand what is going on around them, to help them navigate the pitfalls of human-rights violations, international law and, in a word, a foreign country’s complex politics. Frustratingly, the underlying issues – the most compelling questions – of whether Afghan detainees were handed over to be tortured by some of their fellow Afghans, and whether Canadians were negligent in letting that happen, remain myste-

rious. In other words, it is still unknown whether Canadians were involved in war crimes. The MPCC is what it is: a commission to deal with complaints against military police. The eight officers against whom two civil-liberties organizations made complaints have all been cleared. The report concluded, however, that the Canadian commanders in Afghanistan, as well as another authority called the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal, who is an adviser to the Chief of the Defense Staff on policing matters, had not given adequate guidance to the military police. They had not sufficiently communicated to the officers the principles and polices they needed to know in order to do their job well. The Globe and Mail, Toronto

Africa terror threat grows


PEAKING AT A seminar of the Africa Center for Strategic Studies in Washington last month, U.S. Army Gen. Carter Ham warned that Islamic movements in Africa were linking up and threatening regional stability. “What really concerns me is the indications that the three organizations are seeking to coordinate and synchronize their efforts … That is a real problem for us and for African security in general.” These movements are al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, alShabab in Somalia and Boko Haram in Nigeria. Beginning with the establishment of the center in 1994 and the activation of an American military command that focuses on the 53 states in Africa in 2008, the United States has tak-

en a leading role in efforts to train, equip and advise African countries that face threats to their stability. Increasingly, the threat has come from Islamist terrorist movements. Gen. Ham’s recent warnings should not fall on deaf ears. In February and April he made similar statements about the very “real danger” that these groups pose. Recent attacks throughout countries bordering the Sahara, combined with the weakening of state power in Tunisia, Libya and parts of Egypt, mean this combined threat harms innocent Africans and has the potential to spread terrorism to the Middle East, Europe and America.

Poor nations seek job aid


HE NEW president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim, who began his five-year term on July 1, faces many challenges reforming the international financial institution and promoting its goal of reducing global poverty. There are still1.3 billion people living on less than $1.25 per day, 22 percent of the total population of the world’s developing countries and regions. This is a far cry from a world free of poverty, and there is still much to be done.

Editorial Board

There is no doubt that over the past 60 years, the World Bank has played a very important role in helping developing countries fight poverty. However, to meet the challenges of the changing international economic situation, the World Bank must adapt and evolve. For many developing countries the biggest challenge they face is creating jobs, and they want the World Bank to increase investment in human capital. China Daily, Beijing

A slain child’s mother welcomes Court’s juvenile ruling A TEENAGER killed my 3-year-old son, Casson Xavier “Biscuit” Evans, during a drive-by shooting 17 years ago. Yet I celebrate the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to abolish mandatory life-without-parole sentences for youths. Casson died on Dec. 21, 1995. Raymond Johnson, who was convicted in the shooting, was 14 at the time. During the trial, I was fine with the prosecutors’ recommendation of life sentence without the possibility of parole. That seemed to represent justice. In the years since, my perspective has changed and I think the Supreme Court decision represents a huge – and appropriate – step forward. Justice Elena Kagan, writing for the majority, said it’s wrong that a young person should be forced to “die in prison even if the judge or jury would have thought” that his youth justified “a lesser sentence (for example, life with the possibility of parole).” I agree with Kagan. We consider their ages when we grant children the right to vote, purchase alcohol and cigarettes, or serve in the military. Likewise, justice should reflect a child’s age and, therefore, allow for a second chance for all


COMMENTARY SHARLETTA EVANS children. We must not judge our children for the rest of their lives based on their greatest failures. As every parent knows, children sometimes make poor decisions and fail to think through the consequences of their actions. I remember looking at Johnson in court and realizing that he wasn’t a monster but a child who had made a horrible mistake. When I saw him recently, he had become a man. We had our first meeting in May. We spent eight hours together talking about Casson, what happened that night and what transpired in Johnson’s life that led him to that point. Many tears were shed, and I talked about the power of forgiveness. Johnson has become a productive person in prison. He has earned his GED diploma and studied for a college degree. He has had no disciplinary actions in seven years. He serves as a mentor and facilitates group discussions. And he has become spiritually grounded.

I let Johnson know that I no longer want him to carry the guilt of what happened. I told him that I am OK and my family is fine. I now have absolute closure. I am alive again, complete and restored. I am remembering my Casson for who he was, and not what happened to him that dreadful night. My surviving son says it’s obvious that I have resolution and that my anger has diminished. This is huge for a mother to hear. I know that Johnson, with the proper supports, could be just as productive if released from prison. I pray that the Supreme Court’s decision will help us to stop giving up on our children.

Writer sees Republicans as threat to women’s rights


We must not judge our children for the rest of their lives based on their greatest failures.

am writing in response to Barbara Yanchek’s letter in reaction to a Republican House bill titled Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (“Rejection of bill a ‘war on girls,’” June 10). “PRENDA,” as it is referred to, was voted down by pro-choice members of the U.S. House of Representatives because gender-selective abortion is simply not a proven problem in this country, and it interferes with and restricts the personal relationship between women and their health care providers – something Republicans cannot seem to get through their heads. In what seems to be a disturbing pattern, Republicans and the religious right still appear to have an insatiable appetite for demonizing women and a strange fetish to occupy their bedrooms and doctor’s offices. Does Ms. Yanchek seriously think that law enforcement is going to accompany every pregnant woman into the physician’s office and monitor the situation for the benefit of people like her who appear to think that women in general are constantly contemplating evil on some fantastic grand maternal scale? For Republicans, women’s rights apparently have whiplashed to the back of the bus.

We have Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the most popular woman in the world, traveling to countries that have few, if any, women’s rights, attempting to lift them up and out of their plight; while at the same time our Republican-controlled Congress and Republican governors are seeking to reverse and obliterate the very same rights American women have worked so hard for and of which they are so deeply proud. Women did not have input in the Constitution, but we are sure making up for it now. Thanks to Democratic presidents, we now have three female Supreme Court justices. We are breadwinners, college grads, caretakers of young and old and everything in between, and we are the biggest “super PAC” in the country. This truly will be a frightening election for women if any candidates with an antichoice agenda get into office.

W-B Council applauded for backing ‘the little guy’


e are writing to express our gratitude to the Wilkes-Barre City Council for its expeditious decision to support our resolution to overturn Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Committee. On May 24, the council came to a historic decision, voting 4-1 in favor of supporting the resolution. The U.S. Supreme Court decision to put our democracy up for sale by allowing “super PACs” to contribute unlimited, anonymous funds to political parties and candidates, if not overturned by a constitutional amendment, will create a plutocracy wherein a small number of wealthy financiers will have complete control over the rest of us. This will put an end to American democracy, turning “the land of the free and the home of the brave” into “the land of the greed and the home of the slave.” We the people must unite to preserve our way of life. As the movement to overturn this disastrous Supreme Court decision sweeps the nation, we are proud to call the WilkesBarre Council allies in the struggle to preserve American freedom. We invite patriots to join us by going to Bill Daniels and Brian Leonard Wilkes-Barre

Shooting shakes up Plymouth neighborhood Residents of street want change now. By BILL O’BOYLE

PLYMOUTH – Kids were riding bicycles, a man was fixing his car and others were sitting on their porches as a neighborhood struggled to get back to normal after Saturday night’s shooting that left three people dead and another clinging to life. But most of the residents kept their doors locked and they stayed inside. At the corner of Orchard and First streets, the three-story building where the shootings occurred once housed a small neighborhood market. Across the street was a tavern, and a few doors from there a barber would cut hair on Mondays. Not far from the murder scene is John Mergo Community Park, where kids play baseball and soccer. And a half block down Orchard Street kids would buy penny candy in Minnie’s Store. It was a quiet neighborhood for decades, but all that changed Saturday around 7:30 p.m. Stan Siberski, who lives next door to what is now a crime scene, has lived on First Street for 45 years. “It’s not the old neighborhood,” Siberski said Sunday. “We’ve noticed a lot of shady activity; it’s all young people.” A man on the third floor of the building where the crimes oc-


curred said he is the brother of the landlord. Neither the man nor his brother would talk about the incident. Some neighbors said the building rents to Section 8 tenants, who use federal program housing vouchers for all or part of their rent. Plymouth Councilman Bill Dixon said the program should watch over its buildings and send inspectors out regularly. “Small boroughs like Plymouth just can’t afford it,” Dixon said. “Our funding is always being cut – funds we need to inspect buildings and to fight crime.” Dixon praised the borough police. A neighbor said cops arrived on the scene within three minutes of the shootings. “We’re frustrated,” Dixon said. “Our police force is not doing a bad job. I just think we need to equip them better, but we just don’t have the money.” Dixon said the police are “overworked and underpaid.” He said towns like his are seeing a shift in residents – especially those in programs such as section 8. People move to the area from other cities or states and when they find trouble in one town, they move – or shift – to the next town, he said.

“We need more resources,” Dixon said. “This certain ‘element’ moves into small towns where they know the police forces are low in manpower.” Dixon also said landlords of Section 8 housing should screen their tenants and then keep an eye on the buildings. But neighbors knew something was going on in the building where the shooting occurred. Siberski said it has been the worst he has seen in his 45 years there. “Drug deals have been going on

They drove back to Nanticoke, where Hamilton and Davis went to their apartment. Ginther later drove them to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center to visit a patient. During Hamilton’s interview at the state police barracks in Wyoming he said he knew Swartwood as “Wuz” and Nicolas Maldonado as “Cannon.” Hamilton previously bought marijuana from Swartwood. Before the shooting Hamilton paid Swartwood $250 for a 1/2 ounce of marijuana and went with him into the Plymouth apartment to get it. During the exchange Davis pulled out bundles of heroin to show Swartwood, and Nicolas Maldonado reached out. At that point Davis shot Maldonado. Hamilton said he did not want to be involved and told the same to Davis, who then shot the others. Hamilton and Davis left the apartment and met up with Ginther and went to the mall to shop for clothes and sneakers. After buying the clothes, Hamilton threw his old jeans and shirt into a garbage can in the center of the mall. Police searched the East Ridge Street residence of Hamilton and Davis and recovered a .40-caliber Smith and Wesson pistol, and a pair of size 111/2 white Nike sneakers with suspected blood on them in a bag in the kitchen. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for 10 a.m. July 18 for Hamilton and Davis.

Conklin said she saw one of the suspects fleeing the building Sunday night and watched him run up Orchard Street. “I don’t know if there was a car waiting for him or what,” she said.

The apartment smelled of marijuana and police saw some and a scale commonly used in street level drug trafficking in the residence. Swartwood, Abaunza and Nicolas Maldonado were later pronounced dead by acting county coroner William Lisman. Shortly after midnight police interviewed Brandon Ginther, no age or address available, who admitted to driving Hamilton and Davis to the Plymouth apartment. Ginther, who was not charged, said Hamilton called him for ride between 5 and 6 p.m. Saturday. He met Hamilton and Davis in Nanticoke and Hamilton said he wanted to buy a gun. They drove around, but the gun shops they visited were closed. They later drove back to Nanticoke and picked up Swartwood and one of the Maldonado brothers. Ginther did not want to stick around and dropped off Hamilton, Davis and the other two passengers at the First Street apartment. Ginther got a call from Hamilton short time later telling him to “hurry up” and he picked up Hamilton and Davis who were walking on West Shawnee Avenue.

Plymouth Borough Council meets Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the borough building, West Shawnee Avenue.

SHOOTING tis, who was at the apartment building on the corner of First and Orchards streets with investigators on Saturday, said all resources would be dedicated to the case. “Everybody cares about their community, and when they hear of something this tragic occurring it’s just a shock to everybody, and it’s very emotional,” said Salavantis. “Right now my condolences go out to the families, they are what I’m thinking of right now,” she said. She reiterated the position of investigators that the shooting was not connected to one Friday afternoon on Jay Street, WilkesBarre. The victim, 22-year-old Kenyatta Hughston, was shot in the head and listed in critical condition at Geisinger Wyoming Valley. No arrest has been made in the Wilkes-Barre shooting. Police said Hamilton told them Hughston was the cousin of him and Davis. “I can say right now that there is no evidence in our hands that can say the two are connected at this point in time,” said Salavantis. “Obviously there are questions out there with one occurring 24 hours before the other. We’re doing everything in our power to make sure we find out what happened in Wilkes-Barre as well.”

“I never heard of this stuff happening in Plymouth,” she said. “But we felt something was going to happen in that building.” Cars would drive up, people get out and enter the second floor apartment and then come out soon after, she said. Rubber gloves remain on the porch of the apartment where the shootings occurred. Neighbors said the place was often a scene for parties. “Everybody knew something was going to happen there,” said

another neighbor who wouldn’t give his name. “But nobody ever expected anything like this.” He and another neighbor said police were called to the building on Friday night. They said it appeared to be a domestic dispute and an infant was taken from the apartment. Leon Sank lived across the street. He erected a memorial to his son, Paul Richard Sank, a soldier who served in Afghanistan, who returned home and died at the age of 24. Sank’s house is decorated in patriotic style. “The neighbors said they saw four people go in the building, but only two came out,” Sank said. “I was working with power tools in the garage and a neighbor came over and told me to call 911.” Siberski said he thought maybe somebody was working in the apartment or that fireworks were being shot off. “It’s gotten rougher around here,” Sank said of the neighborhood he’s lived in for 17 years. “That’s been a troubling place. The police have been there several times.” Dixon said council will discuss what it can do at its meeting Tuesday. “The people themselves have to speak out and help police,” he said. “If they see suspicious activity, report it. “We need help from the state, the county, the federal government, but so does every other town.”

her son two weeks ago in Nanticoke. Her son knew the Maldonado brothers and went to school with them, she said. Swartwood and Danny Maldonado II were 2010 graduates of John S. Fine High School in Nanticoke. Previously they attended Wyoming Valley West. “He was a rough around the edges, but he was harmless,” she said. Danny Maldonado became a father on June 1. According to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center’s birth reports, Maldonado and Ashley Bryant had a daughter on June 1. The mailbox at the First Street apartment had the names Bryant – Maldonado on it. Barbara Abaunza, the mother of Lisa Abaunza, declined comment when contacted Sunday afternoon. Her daughter graduated from eighth grade at St.

Mary’s Assumption School in Pittston last year. She attended Scranton Preparatory School. In the police affidavits What happened in Plymouth was detailed in affidavits prepared by state trooper Charles Prula and county Det. Lt. Gary Sworen: Plymouth police responded to a report of shots fired in a residence at 401 First St. around 7:36 p.m. and two black males seen leaving the scene. Officers arrived and met a witness who said he heard shots fired and through an opening in a front door window saw a male lying on the floor. Police saw the male, later identified as Nicolas Maldonado, in a pool of blood. They went into the apartment and found a male on the floor in the bedroom, Abaunza in the living room area and a male later iden-

A discussion on 40-hour work weeks is planned for Tuesday’s public county council work session, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the county’s Emergency Management Agency building, Water Street, Wilkes-Barre.

• Assistant district attorneys/ public defenders: 37.5 hours (1,000 hours per year for part-timers) • Prison: 40 hours • Aging: 37.5 hours • Detectives: 37.5 hours • Transportation: 40 hours • Children and Youth: 37.5 hours • Mental Health and Developmental Services: 37.5- to 40 hours, depending on hire date

sioners in office at the time supported the hourly pay increase, saying the county could avoid adding staff if the deputies put in more time. The county’s recent proposed contract with detectives did not propose an increase from their current 37.5-hour week, according to a copy of the proposal obtained by the newspaper. That contract was rejected by a council majority and advanced to binding arbitration. The court-appointed professionals union, which includes

domestic relations and probation officers, went from 32.5 to 35 hours years ago, said union representative Charles Majikes. The union’s contract expires at the end of 2014. More hours, more pay? Majikes said a pay increase must come with more hours. He personally agreed with the court-related unit’s rejection of the recent proposal. “I’m appalled that they’re asking people to work more for less, especially with recent layoffs and cutbacks. Where does

it end?” Majikes said. Teamsters Local 401’s Pat Connors, who represents 350 human service employees and assistant public defenders/district attorneys, believes union members are receptive to 40hour weeks with additional pay. “We wouldn’t have an issue discussing it, but they need to be compensated. You can’t expect them to take the same pay and work more hours,” Connors said. The four Teamsters union contracts expire at the end of 2013. Mental health and developmental service employees hired after January 2005 and transportation employees already work 40 hours, with the rest at 37.5. Unionized prison guards have had 40-hour work weeks at least two decades, said former union head Tony Seiwell.

IMBLEDON, England — Once the Centre Court roof was closed, nothing could stop Roger Federer from winning his record-tying seventh Wimbledon title. The 30-year-old Federer finally equaled Pete Sampras’ record at the All England Club, and won his 17th Grand Slam title overall, by beating Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 Sunday. “I’m happy that closing the roof maybe helped me today because I wasn’t sure if that was going to help me or not,” said Federer, who took advantage of the windSee FEDERER, Page 5B

Their quest for another sectional MOUNTAIN TOP crown begins 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Back Mountain Little League when they play the District 17 champion – either Dunmore or Old Forge. The road to sectionals required defeating Mountain Top on consecutive days. Sunday started well as Josh Montalvo, the second batter of the game, cracked a solo homer to dead center.

WILKES-BARRE – Two innings of frustration followed by two innings of jubilation. Followed by the end of decades without a District 16 Little League Major Baseball championship. After squandering opportunities early, South Wilkes-Barre scored nine runs total in the third and fourth innings Sunday to make quick work of Mountain Top 10-0 in four innings. The championship was the first for the league since 1969 when it was known as St. Therese’s. However, many of the players know about winning a district title as they did so in the 9-10 division in 2010. See SWB, Page 4B

Choi wins Women’s Open title

South Korean survives rough final round for four-stroke victory over Amy Yang. By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer



PORRENTRUY, Switzerland — Bradley Wiggins kept the yellow jersey at the Tour de France. Keeping his cool was another matter. The former Olympic champion, with ambitions to be Britain’s first Tour winner, unleashed a profanity-laced tirade after Sunday’s eighth stage in which the race entered Switzerland. Thibaut Pinot, at 22 the youngest competitor, was the day’s winner and gave France its first stage victory this year. Wiggins quashed a late attack by defending champion Cadel Evans to hold the lead. Wiggins’ Team Sky has controlled the Tour in a style reminiscent of Lance Armstrong’s former U.S. Postal team. The Briton, however, lost his composure when asked by a reporter to comment on comparisons between the teams and “cynics who be-

KOHLER, Wis. — Na Yeon Choi survived a triple bogey and a few more shaky moments on the back nine Sunday to win the U.S. Women’s Open at Blackwolf Run. It’s the first major and sixth career LPGA Tour victory for the 24-year-old South Korean star, who came into the tournament ranked Choi fifth in the world. Choi shot a1-over 73 on Sunday and finished at 7 under for a fourstroke victory. Fellow South Korean player Amy Yang had a 71 to finish second. Choi came into Sunday with a six-stroke lead after shooting a 7under 65 on Saturday. She got into trouble when she triple-bogeyed No.10, but recovered to win See CHOI, Page 5B

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L 1902 — Rube Waddell beat Bill Dinneen 4-2 in 17 innings when light-hitting Monte Cross hit a two-run homer for Philadelphia. 1932 — Ben Chapman of the Yankees hit three homers, including two inside-the-park, as New York beat the Detroit Tigers 14-9 at Yankee Stadium. 1940 — The NL recorded the first shutout in All-Star play, with a 4-0 win at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis. Five pitchers — Paul Derringer, Bucky Walters, Whit Wyatt, Larry French, and Carl Hubbell — held the AL to three hits. Max West hit a three-run homer. 1946 — After a one-year break due to war travel restrictions, the Americans trounced the Nationals 12-0 at Fenway Park, the most one-sided of the AllStar games. Ted Williams of the Red Sox didn’t disappoint the hometown fans, hitting two homers and

two singles for five RBIs. 1968 — Willie McCovey hit into a double play, scoring Willie Mays with the only run of the 39th All-Star game, played at the Houston Astrodome. It was the first game of this series played indoors and the first 1-0 contest in All-Star history. 1976 — Houston’s Larry Dierker pitched a no-hitter as the Astros beat Montreal 6-0. Dierker struck out eight and walked four. 1991 — Cal Ripken hit a three-run homer to lead the AL over the NL 4-2 in the All-Star game for the AL’s fourth straight victory in the contest. 1996 — Mike Piazza launched an upper-deck home run in his first at-bat and lined an RBI double next time up, leading the Nationals to a 6-0 victory in the All-Star game in Philadelphia. 2000 — Tyler Houston hit three home runs, tying his

career-high with six RBIs, in Milwaukee’s 10-2 rout of Detroit. 2002 — Despite Barry Bonds hitting a home run and Torii Hunter making a spectacular catch, the AllStar game finished in a 7-7 tie after 11 innings when both teams ran out of pitchers. 2005 — It took 847 regular-season games at Coors Field, the most any stadium needed, before hosting its first 1-0 game. The lowest total runs scored in a game at Coors Field before Colorado’s 1-0 win over San Diego was 2-0. There had been three 2-0 games at the 11-year-old stadium. 2007 — Los Angeles Angels slugger Vladimir Guerrero won the Home Run Derby, hitting 17 homers and beating Toronto’s Alex Rios 3-2 in the final round of the All-Star competition.

Castellanos, Myers power U.S. to Futures win KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Detroit prospect Nick Castellanos hit a three-run homer during a nine-run sixth inning, and Royals minor leaguer Wil Myers added three RBIs to lead the U.S. team to a 17-5 rout of the World team in the All-Star Futures Game on Sunday. Billy Hamilton and Manny Machado each drove in two runs for the U.S. team, contributing to a record 22 combined runs during the annual prospect showcase. Castellanos was the game’s MVP, but it was Myers who drew the biggest reaction. The 21-year-old outfielder received a standing ovation from an adoring sellout crowd that has been pining for his arrival all season. Myers is hitting .315 with 14 homers in 48 games at Triple-A Omaha. Rays 7, Indians 6 Tampa Bay

New trustees want to help Penn State heal By GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Former Penn State defensive back Adam Taliaferro inspired fans and alumni after he recovered from a spinal cord injury on the football field so serious that doctors once feared he would never walk again. More than a decade afterward, it’s Taliaferro who is now trying to help his alma mater through a challenging period. The football player-turned-lawyer is one of three new alumnielected members of the university’s Board of Trustees officially taking their seats when the board holds its next meeting Friday in Scranton. Taliaferro, financial services executive Anthony Lubrano and retired Navy SEAL Capt. Ryan McCombie assume the posts at a crucial time for Penn State: as the school awaits the

findings of an internal investigation, led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse Taliaferro scandal. Of the three trustees, Taliaferro is the most well-known by virtue of his motivational recovery from a severe neck injury after his helmet hit the knee of Ohio State tailback Jerry Westbrooks on Sept. 23, 2000, in Columbus. He has since written a book and started a foundation to help athletes recovering from similar injuries. “It’s not just something I’m doing to put it on my resume,” Taliaferro, now a lawyer in suburban Philadelphia, said in a recent phone interview. In November, Taliaferro also won election as a

Democratic member of the Board of Freeholders in Gloucester County, N.J. “It’s a great opportunity to help a place that’s really given me a lot over my whole life,” he said of Penn State. Name recognition turned Taliaferro into an early favorite in the race for three alumni trustee seats up for election this past spring. Nine of the 32 seats on the board are filled by alumni; the rest are filled by various means, including appointment or by university or state officials. Taliaferro came in first with more than 15,600 over 37,000plus votes cast — a recordturnout sparked by criticism by many alumni over the board’s actions in the frantic weeks following Sandusky’s arrest in November. Taliaferro said he wanted alumni to know that “just because I

have name recognition, I have no special entitlements. ... I want to prove to them that I’m there for more than just my name.” The trustees’ ouster of Taliaferro’s old coach, the late Joe Paterno, especially drew the ire of vocal alumni groups. The trustees cited in part a moral obligation for Paterno to do more to relay to offcampus police the account of graduate assistant Mike McQueary’s account in 2001 of witnessing abuse in the Penn State showers. Paterno’s supporters say trustees never afforded the revered coach the opportunity to tell his full story and rushed to judgment before firing him. Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted on 45 of 48 criminal counts last month, including charges related to the 2001 encounter witnessed by



McQueary. Taliaferro, McCombie and Lubrano each ran on platforms that included increasing transparency and openness at Penn State, to varying degrees. But Taliaferro said the incoming trio wasn’t joining the board to create divisiveness. “To accomplish everything, you have to work with people. It’s just can’t be us three with these ideas,” Taliaferro said. “It’s not just ‘Our way or the highway.’ We all have to figure that out. ... The right way to approach things.” Lubrano has been by far the most outspoken of the new alumni trustees. A prominent donor whose name is on the campus baseball stadium, Lubrano has been critical of the board’s actions since the scandal’s early days in November. He promises to maintain his vo-

cal presence — even though he must now work with many of the board members he criticized. “I have a moral obligation for me to speak out if it’s in the best interest of Penn State for me to do that,” he said. “And I’m certainly not going to be managed by other trustees in my quest for openness and transparency, but I certainly look forward to working with the other trustees to accomplish that objective.” McCombie and Taliaferro declined to answer questions about recent leaked emails from ousted school President Graham Spanier and Athletic Director Tim Curley reportedly related to the handling of the 2001 allegation. Curley and former Vice President Gary Schultz are charged with perjury and failure to report suspected child abuse; Spanier is not charged.


SWB heads into break with loss to Buffalo

Plenty of holes need to be filled by U.S.

SYRACUSE – A former New York Met star and a possible future one spelled doom for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in Sunday’s 10-3 loss to the Buffalo Bisons. Matt Den Decker, who some believe could be the Mets opening day center field next season, blasted a solo home run in the first off former Mets pitcher John Maine and added a two-run single in the fifth for Buffalo. The home run was Den Decker’s sixth of the season and second in as many days. Unfortunately for Maine, Den Decker wasn’t the only Bisons’ batter he had trouble facing. Maine (2-3) last only 4 2/3 innings, allowing six earned runs

on four hits, four walks and two strikeouts. Josh Satin aslo belted a home run against Maine, a two-run shot in the fourth inning that gave the Bison a 3-0 lead. Preston Claiborne, Justin Thomas and Manny Delcarmen faired little better in relief, combining to allow four runs in 4 1/3 innings of work. The Yankees got on he board in the fifth inning on an RBI double by Doug Bernier and Chris Dickerson sacrifice fly. Brandon Laird added an RBI single in the seventh. The Yankees are now off for the Triple A All-Star game until Thursday night when they return action against the Syracuse Chiefs on Thursday night.


Mt. Post B takes top seed with victory and a coin flip

Tom Goyne recorded two hits, including a double, and two RBI to lead Mountain Post B to a 6-4 victory over Greater Pittston in an American Legion baseball game. Tyler Sadzary chipped in two hits of his own, including a triple, and one RBI. Brian Markowski earned the victory on the mound, pitching three innings and allowing just one run. Nick Hogan recorded two hits, including a double, while Evan McCue added one hit and two RBI. Joe Pechulis was credited with the loss for Greater Pittston. League playoffs start Friday at Mountain Post. Mountain Post B and Greater Pittston both finished with a record of 13-5 and earned the co-league regular season championship.

South Wilkes-Barre then loaded the bases with one out, but came up empty. It did the same in the second, and again had nothing to show for it. “Inside, yeah I was a little bit frustrated,” South Wilkes-Barre manager Vito Pasone said, “because we had opportunities and obviously we didn’t capitalize. But that’s the way our offense is. We put the ball in play, we pop the ball up. “But I knew that we were going to break through at some point because that’s the type of offense we have.” The first sign came when eventual winning pitcher Ryan Gilgallon opened the third with a single.

Montalvo’s homer was his third against Mountain Top in the three games the teams have played. South Wilkes-Barre tacked on four more in the fourth. Colin Pasone had an RBI double, Noah Edwards had a two-run single and Kyle Ostrowski brought home a run on a groundout. Mountain Top’s best threat came in the third when Evan Knapp and Ben Kreuzer opened the inning with singles.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — They lost Dwyane Wade but gained Kevin Durant. Dwight Howard’s size has given way to Russell Westbrook’s speed. The Americans know their men’s Olympic basketball team will look much different than the one that captured gold four years ago in Beijing. Three of the most important players from that team were unable to return, but the carryovers keep talking about being better now than they were then. “I think it has the potential to be that if we learn to use our versatility. It’s a more versatile team than 2008. Now does that translate into being better?” coach Mike Krzyzewski said Sunday. “Although we don’t have the center, that team didn’t have Durant or Westbrook. So it’s a different team and we’ll see if it becomes better, but it can be. It could be.” In some ways, that’s difficult to envision. Wade was the team’s leading scorer, averaging 16 points in just over 18 minutes per game off the bench. Howard started at center and averaged 10.9 points while shooting 74.5 percent from the field. Chris Bosh, also out this summer, backed him up and shot even better, knocking down 24 of 31 shots (77.4 percent) and leading the team with 6.1 rebounds per game. How can any team make up for all that? “Well, we have some guys that can pick that up,” LeBron James said. “I mean, D-Wade was our leading scorer, but we didn’t have Kevin Durant on our team. We didn’t have the activity of Tyson Chandler on our team as well and the athleticism at the point guard position.” Westbrook is an offensive upgrade over Jason Kidd, the point guard not back from ‘08, and is

seen by teammates as the player who could most easily fill Wade’s role as the game-changer off the bench. As James sees it, Andre Iguodala is more athletic than Tayshaun Prince, and James Harden can do more things offensively than Michael Redd. Prince and Redd, along with Carlos Boozer, were reserves on the 2008 team but were not retained. Kidd retired from international competition after winning two gold medals. “If you match us up, we have so many great pieces that guys can just play to their strengths, and I think we can be better,” James said. Having Durant is a start. The NBA’s three-time scoring champion had the best tournament ever by an American player at the world basketball championship two years ago, scoring 22.8 points per game. But the biggest difference could be James, who was already a great player in 2008 but has grown into the best in the world by now. Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Deron Williams, the other young players from that team, have made similar leaps toward superstardom, and Kobe Bryant has held steady where he was. “First of all, you have to look at the guys who are with us from the ‘08 team. They were 21, 22 years old back in Beijing. They’re now in the prime of their careers, so they’re a lot bigger, stronger, better basketball players today,” USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. “Those players by themselves are much better and I look at the players we’ve added. We have much more depth, much more talent than we had in ‘08 when I look at this roster versus that roster, and I’m not looking to make comparisons, but when asked the question, I’ll put this team up against anyone.” South WilkesBarre shortstop Colin Pastone fires to first base for the out against Mountain Top in the District 16 major division championship game in Wilkes-Barre on Sunday afternoon.

ladie said. “They really like each other. They’re all friends. It’s not like there is a dislike on the team. We’ve come a long way since they were 10. We’re looking forward to seeing South Wilkes-Barre down the line when we’re older. I think we’ll give them a run for their money.”

Here’s our picks for the fantasy all-stars TOUR

Continued from Page 1B

PEOPLE LOVE to argue. Actually, let me rephrase that. People love to argue about sports. I don’t think they love to argue about things like whether you were staring at that biker’s girlfriend, or if your mother-in-law’s lasagna tastes like ketchup and cardboard. But sports … Ahhh. Rev up your verbal engines and start the debate. And into our laps this week falls one of the biggest arguments in the baseball world – Did the All-Star Game get it right? Should Carlos Ruiz or Buster Posey start? Is Bryce Harper there because of hype or talent? Same thing with Yu Darvish? Bryan LaHair? Really? And whatever happened to “Morganna, The Kissing Bandit?” You are entitled to your own opinions, of course, although the real answers should be: Ruiz. Hype. Talent. No. And she lives in Ohio somewhere. The Midsummer Classic also provides us with a chance to argue over who deserves a spot

RICH SHEPOSH FANTASY BASEBALL on the 2012 Fantasy All-Star team. Well, not really argue, as I’m the one with the opinion and the keyboard, but it’ll interesting to see how different the real fantasy stars are from who we thought they’d be on draft day. Ready? (Just a note. I’m sticking to the player’s real-world positions. For example, Miguel Cabrera is eligible at first base, but he plays third. So, in my world, he’s at 3B.) CATCHER: Carlos Ruiz, Phillies. Check out this juicy stat line: .348 avg., 40 runs, 13 HRs, 46 RBI. Every one of those numbers is near the top in its category and his batting average is fourth in all of Major League Baseball. If you had doubts about Ruiz, then doubt no more. His success in 2012 is for real. Preseason pick - Carlos Santana, Indians: .219 avg., 5 HRs, 29 RBI. FIRST BASE: Joey Votto, Reds. He’s a hitting machine for the Big Red Machine. Clocking in with a .349 avg., 50 runs, 14

HRs, and 48 RBI, Votto could make a run at another MVP trophy. His second half will look a lot like his first. Preseason pick - Albert Pujols, Angels: .270, 13 HR, 49 RBI. SECOND BASE: Robinson Cano, Yankees. Quite simply, he’s the best second baseman in the game today. A .316 avg., 56 runs, 20 HRs, and 56 RBI proves it. The Indians Jason Kipnis is a worthy challenger, but he’s not match for Cano. Yet. Preseason pick - Cano. SHORTSTOP: Ian Desmond, Nationals. Probably a May waiver wire pickup in most leagues, Desmond is hitting .282 with 45 runs, 16 HRs and 48 RBI. Sprinkle in nine stolen bases and you have a fantasy star who no one saw coming. And, as an aside, Desmond was nice enough to give my son, Matthew, a baseball at a Harrisburg Senators game a few years ago. Gold star from me! Preseason pick - Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies: .287, 8 HRs, 27 RBI and a spot on the disabled list. THIRD BASE: Miguel Cabrera, Tigers. This is a tough position to gauge. Third base has become a gold mine for fantasy production. The Mets David Wright and the Rangers Adrian

Beltre are both having great years. But its Cabrera’s high numbers across the board that give him the top spot: .324 avg., 52 runs, 18 HRs, 71 RBI. Preseason pick – Cabrera OUTFIELD: Josh Hamilton, Rangers; Andrew McCutchen, Pirates; Ryan Braun, Brewers. You expected big fantasy stats from Hamilton and Braun, and they kept their end of the bargain. (.313, 54 runs, 27 HRs, 75 RBI from Hamilton, and .304 54 runs, 24 HRs, 60 RBI, 13 SBs from Braun) But it’s been McCutchen who is the real surprise here. He always had the talent, he just never tapped into it for a full season. Well, he’s done it this year. McCutchen’s leading MLB in hitting at .359, has 55 runs scored, 16 HRs, 56 RBI and 14 stolen bases. If he maintains this pace, and the Pirates remain in contention, McCutchen is a lock for the NL MVP. Preseason picks – Matt Kemp, Dodgers: .355, 12 HRs, 28 RBI and a twomonth DL stint; Jose Bautista, Blue Jays: .244, 27 HRs, 64 RBI; Braun. STARTING PITCHER: R.A. Dickey, Mets. If you predicted that Dickey would have the kind of season he’s having, then you

Playoff birdie worth $1M for PGA rookie WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Rookie Ted Potter Jr. made a 4-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a playoff with Troy Kelly on Sunday to win the Greenbrier Classic for his first PGA Tour victory. Ranked 218th in the world, Potter overcame a four-stroke deficit with four holes to play, finishing with his second straight 6-under 64 to match Kelly at 16 under. Kelly closed with a 66. Potter became the sixth firsttime winner on the tour this season. He earned $1,098,000 and jumped from 173rd to 51st in the FedEx Cup standings. The 28-year-old left-hander had missed five straight cuts entering the Greenbrier Classic and his previous best finish was a tie for 13th. It marked the third straight year of close finishes on the Old White TPC course. Scott Stallings beat Bob Estes and Bill Haas on the first hole of a playoff last year, and Stuart Appleby shot a 59 to beat Jeff Overton by a stroke in 2010. Charlie Wi and rookie Charlie Beljan tied for third at 14 under. Wi shot a 65, and Beljan had a 67. Webb Simpson lost a onestroke lead on the back nine at

He got up quickly and shook hands with Murray at the net. Up in the players’ box, Federer’s wife and twin daughters cheered and smiled as he took his seat to await yet another Wimbledon trophy presentation. “When the roof closed, he played unbelievable tennis,” Murray said. Federer is now 17-7 in Grand Slam finals, including 7-1at Wimbledon. Murray dropped to 0-4 in major finals, with three of those losses coming against Federer. “It’s amazing. It equals me with Pete Sampras, who’s my hero,” said Federer, who lost in the quarterfinals at the All England Club in 2010 and ‘11. “It just feels amazing.” Besides Sampras, 1880s player William Renshaw also won seven

the tournament for the second straight year. The U.S. Open champion made three straight bogeys, shot 73 and tied for seventh at 11 under. During the fourth round, Potter made long putts for a birdie at No. 15 and an eagle at No. 17, and his 5-footer for birdie at No. 18 tied Kelly, who could have avoided the playoff but missed birdie putts on the final two holes.

Triplett wins First Tee Open PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Kirk Triplett won the First Tee Open on Sunday at Pebble Beach for his first Champions Tour title, making an early eagle and closing with a 6under 66 for a two-stroke victory. Triplett, the three-time PGA Tour winner making his eighth start on the senior tour after turning 50 in March, finished at 10-under 206. He opened with a 70 at Pebble Beach and had a 70 at Del Monte on Saturday to enter the final round four strokes behind leaders Tom Kite and Brad Bryant. Triplett eagled the par-5 second hole, and chipped in on the par-4 16th for the last of his five birdies. He had only one bogey in the final round, on the par-3 12th.

Wimbledon titles, but he did it at a time when the defending champion was given a bye into the following year’s final. Sunday’s match was the first Wimbledon singles final to be played with the roof closed. The roof was first used on Centre Court in 2009. Britain has been waiting 76 years for a homegrown men’s champion at the All England Club, and the expectations on Murray were huge. Thousands of fans watched the match on a huge screen on “Murray Mount,” but left the grounds still waiting for a British winner. Inside the stadium, Prince William’s wife, Kate, sat in the Royal Box along with David Beckham, British Prime Minister David Cameron and a slew of former Wimbledon champions. Many of them left a bit disappointed as well. “Everybody always talks about the pressure of playing at Wimbledon, how tough it is,” said Murray, who held back tears while speaking in front of the crowd. “It’s not the people watching. They make it so much easier to play. The support has been in-

need to start playing the lottery. The 37-year-old journeyman needed a 12-1 start just to push his career record above .500. His 2.40 ERA and 123 strikeouts rank in the top five in all of baseball. Can he keep this pace up? The answer to that is an unpredictable as where his signature knuckleball will end up. Preseason pick – Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers: 6 wins, 2.91 ERA, 110 strikeouts. RELEIF PITCHER: Fernando Rodney, Rays. There’s no bigger poster child for the unpredictability of the closer position than Rodney. Given that same role in Detroit and Anaheim, Rodney couldn’t hold onto it. Both times posting ERAs north of 4.20. But someone sprinkled some magic closer dust on him this year because he has 24 first half saves and ERA that has yet to reach 1.00. (0.96). His career ERA is 4.02 so one would be skeptical going forward. Preseason pick – Craig Kimbrel, Braves: 24 saves, 1.41 ERA.


Ted Potter Jr. celebrates winning the Greenbrier Classic PGA tournament at the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., Sunday. Potter won in a two-hole playoff with Troy Kelly.

credible, so thank you.” With his victory, Federer regained the No.1ranking from Novak Djokovic, allowing him to equal Sampras’ record of 286 weeks as the top-ranked player. “This year I guess I decided in the bigger matches to take it more to my opponent instead of waiting a bit more for the mistakes,” Federer said. “Yeah, this is I guess how you want to win Wimbledon, is by going after your shots, believing you can do it, and that’s what I was able to do today. “It’s special.” Murray is coached by eighttime Grand Slam champion Ivan Lendl, the only other man who lost his first four major finals. But after going 0-9 in sets in those previous three, Murray finally won a set. “I played better this time in the final, and that’s the main thing,” Murray said. “It’s not an easy tournament for British players in many ways, but I think I dealt with all of the extra things away from the tournament pretty well, better than maybe I had done in the past.” At the start of the match, Mur-

ray was the one dictating play and winning the tough points. He broke Federer in the first game of the first set, and then broke again late before serving it out. The second set was much more even, and both had early break points that they couldn’t convert. Federer, however, finally got it done in the final game of the set, hitting a backhand drop volley that Murray couldn’t get to. Both held easily to start the third set, but then the rain started abruptly, suspending play for 40 minutes. Shortly after they returned, it turned into a one-man show. With Federer leading 3-2, they played a 26-point, 20-minute game in which Federer finally converted his sixth break point — after Murray had slipped on the grass three times. Federer lost only five points on his serve in that set. “When we came out after the break, he was more aggressive on my serve,” Murray said. “He has excellent timing, so when there’s no wind or anything under the roof, he times the ball very, very well.”

at the same course where Se Ri Pak won South Korea’s first major title in 1998. Pak was among a group of friends who met Choi after she putted out on the 18th green, showering her with hugs — and victory champagne. Choi becomes the fourth South Korea player to win the event in the five years, following Inbee Park (2008), Eun-Hee Ji (2009) and So Yeon Ryu (2011). Choi could afford to have one bad hole Sunday thanks in large part to her remarkable performance Saturday when she had matched the fifth-lowest single round in Open history. Choi and Yang were the only players to finish the tournament under par. Sandra Gal of Germany shot a 74 and finished1over for the tournament. Il Hee Lee of South Korea, Shanshan Feng of China and Italian Giulia Sergas finished 2 over. Michelle Wie finished the tournament 10 over. After shooting a 66 on Friday to close with a stroke of the lead, she had weekend rounds of 78 and 80. Top-ranked Yani Tseng finished 14 over, and still needs an Open victory to complete a career Grand Slam. The afternoon belonged to Choi, who was even through the front nine, making bogey on No. 1 and making a birdie putt on No. 4. Then she found trouble. It started on the par-510th hole, when she put her tee shot way left into woods and deep rough.

lieve that you have to be doped up to win the Tour.” Wiggins, angered by the chatter on social media, let loose with an expletive-filled outburst. “I cannot be dealing with people like that. It justifies their own bone-idleness because they can’t ever imagine applying themselves to anything in their lives,” he said. “And it’s easy for them to sit under a pseudonym on Twitter and write that.” The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency last month filed charges against Armstrong, accusing the seven-time Tour champion of using performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong denies any wrongdoing. The International Cycling Union has worked to rid drugs cheats from the sport and has drawn some praise from the World Anti-Doping Agency. The Tour is without two-time champion Alberto Contador this year while he serves a doping ban linked to the race in 2010. Wiggins is looking to move from three-time Olympic track gold-medalist to a rising star of the Tour de France roads. His fourth-place Tour finish in 2009 put to rest many questions about his climbing skill. Speaking to French television, Wiggins said his ability to get up hard mountain climbs came from training, diet and lifestyle. “I drink nothing now ... before, in 2004, I was almost an alcoholic after the Olympics.” He’s come a long way since, and he has showed during the last two days he’s able to keep up with strong climbers like Evans, Vincenzo Nibali of Italy and Belgium’s Jurgen Van Den Broeck. Sunday’s ride into the Jura range next to the Swiss Alps, known as the birthplace of the Swiss army knife, offered double drama: a hard last climb that splintered the pack, and a tense chase of Pinot to the finish. Pinot burst from the pack and overtook a breakaway rider during a steep, final climb to win the 98-mile stage from Belfort in eastern France to the Swiss town of Porrentruy. “I will remember this day my entire life,” Pinot said as teammates embraced him. “I can’t yet get my mind around it.” Evans of Australia was second, 26 seconds behind, but didn’t gain any time on Wiggins, who was fourth in a small group that included most of the remaining pre-race favorites. “It was good fun coming in at the end there,” Wiggins said. “It was a bit like being in a junior race again. Everyone attacking in ones and twos. It’s good. It’s what it’s all about.” Still, he acknowledged he was glad he and his British squad were able to get through it, one more obstacle out of the way on the road to the finish in Paris on July 22.

This week looks like it will be filled with average temperatures and a few scattered showers. Today will start off feeling much cooler than the past few mornings. The day will be filled with partly cloudy skies. A cold front will bring some scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area on Tuesday. We could have a stray shower on Wednesday with partly sunny skies. Thursday and Friday will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the lower 80s. The chance for a shower comes back for the weekend with partly cloudy skies and scattered showers Saturday and Sunday. - Michelle Rotella

Lawrence County 430 Court St New Castle, PA 16101

A notice appeared in this newspaper on June 19, 2012 inviting participation in the floodplain management decision-making process. Specifically, we invited comments regarding a program being proposed by the Pennsylvania Region Lead Hazard Control Grant. PROJECT: Grant #: Funding Yr.:

Pennsylvania Regional Leads Hazard Control Grant (PAR-LHCG) PALHB0522-12 June 1, 2012 – May 31, 2015

PURPOSE: Lead-based paint hazard reduction through interim controls or hazard abatement, of existing residential units for families who are low income with children under the age of 6 years old; to conduct the recruitment and training of local contractors; to conduct outreach programs. All activities are targeted not only within Lawrence County, but also in other regions within the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. These projects will be in conjunction with other federal/state/local funded programs, such as Community Development Block Grant, Weatherization, HOME Rehabilitation and ACT 137. LOCATION: The proposed program would involve lead hazard control/reduction activities and minor rehabilitation on residential properties located within Plymouth Borough, 420622C. The Pennsylvania Regional Lead Hazard Control Grant completed an evaluation concerning potential impacts on the floodplain and possible alternative actions. The proposed program could involve projects located within a 100-year floodplain. The conclusion was that there is no practicable alternative to the possibility of potential projects being located within the following Flood Zones A, AO, AH, A1-A30, A99, V and V1-V30. It has been determined that the program must occur within the intended target area/areas, as described above. The alternatives considered included: 1) Funding the proposed program in other areas of the jurisdiction; 2) relocation of housing units and families; 3) no action. These alternatives were rejected for the following reasons: 1) the greatest need for the intended program was found to be in the designated target area/areas and those units/families in need of the housing services exist in all areas of the target area/areas; 2) it is cost prohibitive and not feasible to physically more or raise structures out of the floodplain; 3) no action alternative would certainly not serve to maintain affordable, safe (from lead-based paint hazards) housing for families. In order to minimize risk and potential loss (to life, health and financial investment), owners and tenants will be notified that their units are located in the floodplain and flood insurance will be a required contingency to participation in the grant program. The amount and period of coverage will conform to the National Flood Insurance Program requirements. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) respecting the subject program has been made by the above-named jurisdiction which documents floodplain information and contains a full description of the proposed actions. The ERR is on file at the address listed above and is available for public examination and copying upon request between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. Final approval of the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program will not be made until/unless interested groups, individuals or agencies have had an opportunity to comment. Comments will be accepted by Lawrence County and can be sent to Kimberly Hnida at Lawrence County Community Action Partnership at 815 Cunningham Avenue New Castle, PA 16101 or via telephone at 724-656.0090 above until July 16, 2012. Information regarding the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s regulations concerning floodplain management may be obtained by contacting: Karen M. Griego-West Program Environmental Clearance Officer Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 611 West 6th Street, Suite 801 Los Angeles, CA 90017
