JENKINS TWP. – The state used $895,950 in grants and tax credits to lure a Neiman Marcus Group distribution center to Jenkins Township, with the promise of 151 new jobs within three years. The high-end merchandiser is also expected to sink $12 million into site improvements, equipment purchases and employee training The company, known for selling items like $600 high-heel sneakers and $2,300 clutch purses, was looking at potential sites in several states, according to Mericle Properties Vice President of Area Marketing Jim Hilsher, but settled on a new building in Mericle’s CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park. “They were sort of on the fast track, so if we didn’t have something ready we might have missed this opportunity,” Hilsher said, adding that the 198,400-square-foot building Neiman Marcus will use was constructed “on speculation,” meaning no tenant was lined up when construction began. The building is in the final stages of completion, Hilsher said. Gov. Tom Corbett’s office announced the deal in a press release that said Neiman Marcus will lease the building for 10 “This was a years to handle all East Coast competitive operations.

Department spokesman Steven Kratz said the money comes from annual appropriations in the state budget. The company is also eligible for up to $453,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits, though, unlike the grant money, that comes after the state is satisfied that Neiman Marcus has delivered on a promise to add 151 jobs to the market within three years. Kratz said the grant money could be taken back if that promise isn’t met. Hilsher said he expects most of the jobs to go to area residents. “There are a few people in the com-

Susana Handelong of Stroudsburg is the mother of two of the victims in Saturday’s shooting in Plymouth. Nicholas Maldonado was killed and Daniel critically wounded.



LAINS TWP. – While in a hospital waiting room Saturday night anxious to hear news about her two sons, Susana Handelong couldn’t help but notice two other visitors who were laughing out loud. • On Sunday she found out they were the men charged in the killing of one of her sons and the attempted homicide of another. Handelong is the mother of Nicholas Maldonado, 17, and Daniel Maldonado, 19 – two of the four people shot in Plymouth Saturday night in what appears to be a drug deal gone bad. Nicholas died that night, while his older brother remains in critical condition at Geisinger Wyoming Valley with gunshot wounds to the head, arm and abdomen. Two others -- Bradley Swartwood, 21, and Lisa Abaunza, 15, of


Duryea -- also were killed. “We were there crying for our kids, and they were sitting in a corner laughing and joking around,” Handelong said. Handelong and her husband, Kevin, didn’t know who the two men were.

Facing big-bucks foe, Casey seeks donations Businessman Tom Smith is trying to unseat the incumbent U.S. senator. By ANDREW M. SEDER

In a fundraising letter sent last month, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey’s reelection committee hinted donations were needed because his opponent in November had deep pockets. Now we know how deep. Republican candidate Tom Smith’s personal financial interest report, filed on Friday, shows the coal company owner and selfmade businessman has between $11.5 million and $48.3 million in savings, holdings, investments and life insurance policies.

good news is that all those polls have me at less than 50 percent – a real warning signal for incumbent candidates,” Casey wrote in the letter. Smith’s financial interest statement was due May 15 but he requested an extension of up to 60 days. A copy of the statement, sent to The Times Leader, shows clearly what Casey was worried about when he told donors that Smith has a major advantage – “his own pocketbook.” The statements show all earned income in addition to assets and unearned income such as from retirement plans, rental income, dividends and capital gains. Also listed are liabilities, such as outstanding loans, credit card debt and mortgages. Smith listed

none of those. Smith’s financial interest statement changed considerably from the statement he filed last year. A look at Smith’s 2011 statement filed in November showed an investment portfolio worth as little as $5 million. He was also receiving income through several companies, including TJ Smith Trucking Inc., Thomas J. Smith, Inc., Penn View Mining Inc., and TJS Mining Inc., all of which he was listed as president; and TJS Coal Sales, Inc., where he served as treasurer; and Northern Elk Development, LLC, in which he was listed as a single member. His 2012 statement showed involvement with only two of those companies: TJ Smith Trucking Inc. and Northern Elk Develop-

ment, LLC. He listed asset value of Northern Elk Development between $1 million and $5 million. In addition to his Senate salary, Casey reported income from 21 publicly or non-publicly traded assets between $6,600 and $13,000. Casey reported three creditors, all having to do with his Green Ridge home. The mortgage and two home equity lines of credit totaled between $80,000 and $200,000. While coal made Smith millions, he’s now also invested in the natural gas drilling boom in the state. He listed five lease agreements with natural gas companies for properties in Armstrong County. He listed income between $20,000 and $65,000 from them last year.

WILKES-BARRE – Wilkes-Barre Area School Board’s search to replace retiring Superintendent Jeff Namey should go into full swing Thursday, board President Maryanne Toole said after a work session Monday. The board voted last month to hand off much of the search process to the Pennsylvania School Boards Association, and one meeting has been held with the association, while another is scheduled for this week, Toole said. The board will set Namey the parameters for what it wants to see in candidates, and the PSBA will likely start advertising online by Thursday. Namey is set to retire Aug. 31, after 42 years working in the district. During the meeting, Apollo Group Inc. Project Manager Gary Salijko told the board work has begun on the replacement of a leaky water line at Meyers High School, and that the contractor should start installing pipe today .The board had tried repeatedly to pinpoint the leak, hidden under dense concrete and reinforcement bar that proved impenetrable to even the most high-tech equipment. The contract calls for installation of a new line above ground that will bypass the old line. Salijko said there is no guarantee the replacement will end all leaks, simply because there could be other lines under the concrete that are also leaking. To gauge success of the replacement, measurements of water usage between midnight and 8 a.m. will be taken and compared before and after the new system is put on line and the old one shut off. Salijko also suggested the board should consider replacing four small roofs that are part of a boiler building at Meyers. The district had sought contract bids for replacement of a large main roof damaged by a windstorm, and that work came in at $51,000. But Salijko said the smaller roofs are also at high risk of the same damage because they are made of the same material and are as old as the main roof. The rubberized material loses elasticity with age and becomes susceptible to shattering with sharp temperature changes, Salijko said. Getting the four small roofs replaced would cost another $38,000, Salijko said. The board will decide what to do at Wednesday’s regular meeting.

Hearing on switch of court is under way Lawyers for Cody Lee want the homicide case in juvenile court. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – In the first day of a weeklong hearing on his attorneys’ request to have the homicide case of Cody Lee heard in juvenile court, Darlene Martin testified she never spoke to Lee about the death of her father. Martin, Cody Lee’s grandmother, testified she has kept in touch with Lee, 19, while he has been incarcerated at a juvenile facility but has never once spoken with him about the shooting death of her father, Herbert Lee, who is the defendant’s great-grandfather. “I still don’t know what happened,” Martin testified Monday. Lee was 16 years old when state police allege he carried out a plan to kill his great-grandfather, Herbert Lee, 80, inside

their home on Meeker Outlet Road in Lake Township on Dec. 9, 2009. Lee’s attorneys, Peter Paul Olszewski, Melissa Scartelli and Charles Rado, are attempting to Lee have their client’s case transferred to juvenile court. If Luzerne County Judge Joseph Sklarosky, Jr. grants the request, Lee could be incarcerated until the age of 21. If denied, Lee will face the homicide charge in adult court, and likely a jury trial. Lee’s attorneys called Martin to testify about Lee’s childhood, which included moving nearly a dozen times and the death of three family members, including the murder of his mother, by the time he was 14 years old. Martin testified Lee moved from several locations in Luzerne County to Tennessee and back several times; that the teen’s

mother divorced his father, Scott Lee, and remarried at least twice. Scott Lee is expected to testify at the hearing this week. Lee’s mother was shot and killed in 2004 by her brother at their home in Tennessee. Martin also testified about trouble Lee had in school, including several detentions and suspensions and receiving a criminal charge and fine for having a 13inch knife on school property. Defense attorneys also called a LakeLehman School District guidance counselor to testify about Lee receiving poor grades in school, failing certain classes and ranking in the lowest percentile of his class. Lee ranked 177 out of 178 students. Prosecutors also are expected to call numerous witnesses to testify during the hearing, which will likely last until Thursday. Testimony will resume this morning.

Residence fire kills man

A Northeastern Pennsylvania man is dead following an early morning fire that destroyed his mobile home. The Wyoming County Coroner’s Office says 65-year-old Richard Judge was found dead at his home in Lemon Township, just outside Tunkhannock, on Monday morning. The fire was reported around 5 a.m. Deputy Coroner Alan Thatcher said an autopsy revealed that Judge died of asphyxiation from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by the fire. The manner of death was accidental, he said. His obituary is on Page 6A.



Owner of messy site asks end to fines At issue is the former Murray complex property in downtown Wilkes-Barre. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

WILKES-BARRE -- The owner of the rubble-strewn Murray complex on Pennsylvania Avenue in Wilkes-Barre has asked the court to cancel fines or-

dered by the city code enforcement office. The office temporarily imposed $1,000-a-day fines against Siniawa 16, LP, a year ago after demolition halted, saying the site is a “dangerous and unsafe” nuisance property. The city’s code enforcement appeals board upheld the fines. Siniawa’s appeal says the board’s decision should be reversed or dismissed because

the site is surrounded by fencing. The fines and penalties would not be “fair or reasonable,” says the appeal, which was filed by Hoegen & Associates PC, Wilkes-Barre. No court hearing has been scheduled, the court docket shows. The fines totaled $17,000 from July 12 to July 28. The city argued the fence access gates often were left open

and agreed to stop additional fines if the gates were closed. At least one gate to the property was open Monday. Piles of bricks, concrete and other debris were left after a large commercial building damaged in an arson fire was demolished in fall 2009. Daniel Siniawa, a partner in the limited partnership, could not be reached for comment Monday.

Sandusky case was widely used and has served as an example for what we hope to accomplish on our website,” Stevens said. In the past, only technical filing information, called “court dockets,” have been placed on the Superior Court website. However, in cases of special public interest, entire court filings, called “motions,” will now be posted. The page can be found by going to and clicking on the “Media and Public Information” icon on the left-hand side of the page. Once filings are posted, the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts will have a link to the Superior Court media and public information page on its website,, under the Superior Court link.

Penn State University’s board of trustees will meet Friday on the campus of the PSU Worthington Scranton campus. On the agenda, among other items, is setting tuition rates for the fall semester and the university’s $4.3 billion budget. Nothing related to the ongoing investigation spurred by the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal is on the agenda, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be brought up. The meeting starts at 1:30 p.m. on Friday and is open to the public. It will be held in room 109/110 of the Gallagher Conference Center. There will be an overflow room in Room 14 of the Dawson Building, where the meeting will be live-streamed. The meeting will be the first for Adam Taliaferro, Anthony Lubrano and Ryan McCombie, who began their terms on the board July 1.

In an interview last year, Siniawa said a contractor hired to demolish the building “took off” after removing salvageable steel and copper from the site. Siniawa planned to resume cleanup in spring 2011 with a new demolition company. Siniawa planned an estimated $20 million project that would include 55 loft-style con-

Incoming Wilkes freshmen help the community By ANDREW M. SEDER


ILKES-BARRE – Throughout Luzerne County on Monday, members of the Wilkes University incoming freshman class got their hands dirty as they helped their new neighbors and fulfilled the school’s mission of community service.

As part of their two-day summer orientation that ended Monday, more than 300 students volunteered at 27 locations, including senior centers, youth centers, environmental services, the CEO Food Bank and other community organizations. At the Lands at Hillside Farms in Kingston Township, a group of about 30 students pitched in with gardening and moving inventory. Temperatures in the 80s added a degree of difficulty, but it was well worth it said some of the participants. “I feel at one with the Wilkes community now,” said Tyler Briskie, 18, of Moosic. He will major this fall in entrepreneurship and will commute from his home to Wilkes-Barre for classes. He said he didn’t know what to expect when he arrived at Hillside Farms. “I had heard of their ice cream but not about it (the Lands),” Briskie said.

Megan Boone Valkenburg, Wilkes civic engagement coordinator, said Hillside Farms is a new partner this year and the list of organizations welcoming Wilkes students continues to grow. She said students get to help the community while they make networking contacts for potential internships. In addition to the hard work, the students got to meet classmates before the semester begins. Kate Mahoney, 17, of Kingston, N.H., was among those in the Hillside Farms group. “It was great; I made a lot of new friends,” she said. Mahoney said she chose Wilkes be-

WILKES-BARRE – Wilkes University is expanding west – way west – by offering master’s degree programs in Mesa, Ariz., beginning next January. “We see this as a natural extension of our work,” Wilkes President Patrick Leahy said in a phone interview from Mesa on Monday, as he awaited a city council meeting where the deal

would be sealed. “We think of it as a natural progression of going where students benefit from the individual attention of a small liberal arts college.” Wilkes Dean of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies Michael Speziale, also in Mesa, said the Arizona city of nearly 440,000 had decided to invite liberal arts colleges to set up shop, sending out letters to 1,000 institutions.

Wilkes was one of them. Administrators crunched numbers and decided it was a good fit. “We project up to 275 students here in three years, and 400 to 500 in year five,” Speziale said. “The whole business plan we developed was for this facility to be self-sustaining from day one.” Mesa city officials sweetened the

WILKES-BARRE -- A city resident is questioning if the state Department of Revenue has a conflict of interest in investigating whether the city used tax-free fuel for unauthorized purposes given that a former council member works for the department’s Bureau of Motor Fuels. Karen Ceppa Hirko, treasurer of the Wilkes-Barre Taxpayers Association, said former council member Mike McGinley should step aside from any involvement in the investigation, given his relationship with Mayor Tom Leighton. McGinley, who served on council for three terms before losing a McGinley primary reelection bid in 2007, is employed as a revenue enforcement supervisor in the department’s Bureau of Motor Fuels in Wilkes-Barre. McLaughlin The department is responsible for investigating criminal and tax liability cases. “It’s a conflict. These people know each other,” Ceppa Hirko said. “It’s just like a judge. If there is any kind of relationship, that should be grounds enough to recuse yourself and hand it over to someone else.” Drew McLaughlin, administrative coordinator for the city, confirmed last week that the Department of Revenue has contacted the city to obtain records relating to fuel usage at the city pumps. The request, which McLaughlin described as a “fact-finding” mission, was prompted by a complaint filed by a resident after a Times Leader investigation revealed the city could not account for a nearly 18,000-gallon discrepancy between log books employees fill out detailing how much fuel they pumped and computerized tank records that show how much fuel was removed between Dec. 1, 2011 and June 22. In an email, Elizabeth Brassell, press secretary for the Department of Revenue, said confidentiality laws preclude her from commenting on any specific case. Speaking generally, she said “department standards of conduct ensure such investigations and audits are performed fairly and objectively, without the involvement or influence of any employee that may pose a conflict of interest.” Municipalities and certain other nonprofit organizations do not pay taxes on fuel, which are currently

Records overseer calls for action Quarry operation

Carolee Medico Olenginski disputes county manager’s call to study storage options. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County Prothonotary Carolee Medico Olenginski said it’s taking too long to find a new home for county records. State archive experts advised the county in June 2010 to find another space because the leased Thomas C. Thomas Building in downtown Wilkes-Barre has temperature extremes and leaks, lacks security and is a fire hazard. The prothonotary serves on a records improvement committee tasked with developing a recommended plan, and the committee has studied various options for a new space. The committee was established by law because the

county collects a fee on recorded deeds to generate money for recordsrelated expenses. Medico OleOlenginski nginski said she disagrees with county Manager Robert Lawton, a committee member, because he wants to further reLawton search options. The two clashed during a committee meeting Monday. The prothonotary said after the meeting one of her employees opted to take a voluntary layoff due to the drastic heat and cold in the current record building. The county also pays $8,600

monthly rent for the Thomas C. Thomas property, which has been exceeding the monthly revenue generated by the fee on deeds, she said. “These records are in a bad place. Our purpose is supposed to be protecting and improving records,” she said. County records stored at the Union Street property include wills and other estate files dating back to the 1700s and old marriage license applications, officials said. Some naturalization records and divorce decrees from the 1800s also are kept at the facility. Lawton said, “sustainable, cost-effective storage of necessary county records” is a priority of the administration, but he wants to ensure the county doesn’t waste limited capital funding available for the project. Past county commissioners

had allocated $2 million in borrowed bond funding for a record facility. “It would not be productive to act in haste and deplete the county’s available capital balance without understanding what records will be retained, in what form they’ll be retained, what agencies require access and what the relationship will be among the departments of the division of judicial services and records,” Lawton said. The county’s home rule charter puts deeds, wills, civil and criminal court records under the same judicial services and records division, and Lawton wants to find a way to get them in the same room for efficiency and public convenience. “These records exist to serve the public, and the administration wishes to put the public interest first,” he said.

dominiums, restaurants and 50,000-60,000 square feet of retail space. The building that still sits on the site where Murray’s Inn bar and restaurant was once located was slated for renovation, but Siniawa later said the structure likely would be torn down to make way for new retail and commercial buildings completed in phases. Siniawa unsuccessfully attempted to sell the portion of land that housed the demolished building. He has blamed the struggling economy for delays in the project. City Mayor Tom Leighton said Monday he’s confident Siniawa will develop the property. “He’s extremely enthusiastic about doing something there. He has some viable development plans,” Leighton said. Leighton said he believes Siniawa has some “interested parties” for the project but was held up securing financing.

deal substantially by offering a ready-made campus free for the first year and then leases to colleges that decide to take the offer. “It’s a former court building,” said Mesa City Spokesman Steven Wright. “So it has these courtrooms that can be easily repurposed as lecture halls, and office space and general open areas.” The city is paying for renovations to the “Mesa Center for Higher Education.” Wilkes will join two other institutions that have agreed to offer programs at the center: Missouribased Westminster College and Albright College of Reading. Benedictine University, a Catholic institution in Chicago, is also opening a Mesa campus, though in a separate, nearby location, Wright said.

Wright Township approves 3 police officer contracts


Rubble remains at the former Murray complex on Pennsylvania Avenue in Wilkes-Barre after demolition of a fire-damaged structure halted more than a year ago. City officials say the owner, Siniawa 16, LP, is still pursuing development of the site.

The site is a “valuable piece of property” near the city’s downtown, Leighton said. Siniawa 16, which has offices in Dickson City, paid $1.5 million to purchase the 11.63-acre

property from Thomas Murray at a bankruptcy auction in 2004, records show. The property, divided in four parcels separated by Ross Street, was assessed at $11.1 mil-

lion after the countywide reassessment. Siniawa challenged the assessment, in part due to the demolished property. It is currently assessed at $750,000, records show.

Mesa’s initiative to improve The effort to draw colleges into town stemmed from an initiative Mesa dubbed H.E.A.T., short for Healthcare, Education, Aerospace, Technology/Tourism. “The city has been strategically working on economic development, focusing on certain initiatives, and one of them that came up last year was education,” Wright said. City officials quickly realized that, while there are plenty of community colleges and a few massive state institutes including Arizona State University nearby, there are no small liberal arts colleges so common in the east and Midwest. Wright said the availability of the former municipal court building in historic Mesa only minutes from a soon-to-be completed light rail station provided the perfect mix for attracting existing institutions to fill that niche. All told, the space available

could accommodate up to about 3,000 students, Wright estimated, equal to having one established small liberal arts college in the heart of town, but sparing any one college the expense of setting up a campus and taking the time to build up enrollment. In January, Wilkes will start by offering master’s degree programs in business administration, creative writing, education and engineering management in a temporary location until the city completes renovations at the former courthouse. Classes will be offered five weekends for the equivalent of one 15-week semester at the campus here in Wilkes-Barre, with current faculty traveling to and from Mesa to provide those courses. Other programs will be added when the new campus is available in the fall, Speziale said, including an undergraduate program in mechanical engineering.

Faculty will be hired to work fulltime in Arizona, though local faculty would certainly have the option of seeking jobs there if they want to. Leahy said the move makes sense on many levels, including demographics. With Luzerne County’s average age rising, competition for students is growing stiffer among local colleges and universities. Mesa has a somewhat younger population and less competition for students looking for a liberal arts education. Leahy also said the move could provide a financial boost to programs here in Wilkes-Barre, while giving students opportunities to connect with major industries located in and near Mesa. “We envision this to be self sustaining and it will not drain resources,” Leahy said. “We see it adding value to our main campus both educationally and potentially, over time, financially.”

officials could estimate fuel usage, but whether that would be sufficient for the Department of Revenue is unknown. Mayor Tom Leighton has confirmed he obtained fuel from the city pumps for his private vehicle, which he says he uses extensively for city business. City officials also confirmed Ken Pahler, director of the Department of Public Works, obtained fuel for his vehicle, which is also used for city business. Neither man signed log books showing how much fuel they pumped or kept records of their mileage, however, leaving no way to determine if any of the

fuel was used for personal business. Ceppa Hirko said she’s concerned McGinley won’t do a full investigation because of his relationship with city officials. McGinley’s tenure on council overlapped with Leighton’s, who served as a councilman before being elected mayor in 2003. McGinley also served

with Kathy Kane, a former council member who now serves as controller. Kane’s son, Jared, worked for the Department of Revenue until July 2011, according to Brassell. “This guy should not be involved, period,” Ceppa Hirko said. “They should bring in someone from outside the area.”

Laflin will sell parts of vehicle By JOSEPH DOLINSKY Times Leader Correspondent

LAFLIN – Borough Council passed a motion to advertise the sale of three removed parts of a former municipality vehicle at their monthly meeting Monday night. The sale, which will be advertised for a minimum of $10,000, is for a utility box, generator and light tower, which were formerly equipped to a 2010 Ford F-550. The F-550 was used for police

purposes and as a snow-plow in the winter. Additionally, council members approved the installation of two additional dusk-to-dawn light fixtures to be added to the four fixtures already placed in the borough’s Little League field on Laflin Road. The additional fixtures won’t run the borough any installation costs, but will add to the electric bill in the amount of about $20 per month.

Township Ordinance 234 regarding nuisance vehicles parked on private property. According to the ordinance, automobiles in a dysfunctional state may not linger on a property for more than 30 days. The amendment specified exemptions to the ordinance. If the vehicle is inside an enclosed building, set aside for parts or if the property owner has an effective Wright Township junkyard license, the vehicles may stay as they serve a purpose. However, if the vehicles prove to be hazardous, for example, if they are leaking fluids into the ground or have become infested with vermin, they are to be removed. The ordinance amendment is available for full review at the Wright Township Municipal Building. Supervisor Jerry Uram announced that the Recreation Board members are looking to fill a vacant position.

Leader OKs digging up Arafat’s body


Palestinian boss Abbas also wants international probe into predecessor’s death. By KARIN LAUB and MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH Associated Press


Hitting the high seas

A replica of the historic ship HMS Bounty, right, sails past a lighthouse as it departs Narragansett Bay off the coast of Newport, R.I., Monday. The Ocean State Tall Ships Festival ended Monday with a ‘Parade of Sail’ along Narragansett Bay as the ships sailed out to sea.

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has given final approval to dig up Yasser Arafat’s remains and is also pressing for an international investigation of his predecessor’s mysterious 2004 death, a top aide said Monday.

The decision came days after a Swiss lab detected elevated traces of a lethal radioactive agent on clothing said to be Arafat’s. Testing Arafat’s bones could offer the last chance to get to the bottom of Palestinian claims that their leader was poisoned, though some experts cautioned it may already be too late for conclusive answers. Several Palestinian officials have charged that Israel poisoned Arafat. The French doctors who treated Arafat in his final days did not present a clear cause of death, while Israel em-

phatically denied it killed the Palestinian leader. Arafat, who died at age 75, is buried in a mausoleum in the walled government compound in the West Bank where he spent the last three years of his life under Israeli siege. Scenes of heavy machinery tearing into the wreath-covered grave of the revered leader could prove offensive to devout Muslims. Also, the grave has become a must-see site for Palestinian and foreign visitors to Ramallah. Abbas aide Saeb Erekat said Monday that the need to know

Pension break for business


PSU donations very high

State received more than $208 P enn million in donations last fiscal year,

the second-highest total in university history, despite the upheaval after the arrest of Jerry Sandusky on child sex abuse charges. The school said Monday there was a slight uptick in the number of alumni who donated money or gifts in the fiscal year that ended June 30 to more than 75,500, reversing two years of declines. University vice president Rod Kirsch says the school is grateful for the contributions amid “incredibly difficult circumstances” this year. Meanwhile, lawyers for Penn State and its former president Graham Spanier are heading to court next month to discuss whether Spanier’s lawsuit seeking access to old emails should be dismissed. A court order dated Friday scheduled argument on the matter for Aug. 17 in the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte. PITTSBURGH

Study: No contamination New research on Marcellus Shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania may only add fuel to the debate over whether the industry poses long-term threats to drinking water. A paper published on Monday by Duke University researchers found that gas drilling in northeastern Pennsylvania did not contaminate nearby drinking water wells with salty water, which is a byproduct of the drilling.

Court is firm on ruling Egypt’s highest court insisted Monday that its ruling to invalidate the Islamist-dominated parliament was final and binding, setting up a showdown with the country’s newly elected president after he ordered lawmakers to return. The announcement on state TV came a day after President Mohammed Morsi recalled the legislators, defying the powerful military’s decision to dismiss parliament after the Supreme Constitutional Court ruled that a third of its members had been elected illegally. However, both sides appeared together Monday at a military graduation ceremony. Morsi sat between the head of the armed forces Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi and Chief-of-Staff Sami Anan. The three sat grim faced for most of the ceremony, but Tantawi and Morsi exchanged a few words while seated on the reviewing stand. VATICAN CITY

Women charge abuse Dozens of women who attended a high school run by the disgraced Legion of Christ religious order have urged the Vatican to close the program, saying the psychological abuse they endured trying to live like teenage nuns led to multiple cases of anorexia, stress-induced migraines, depression and even suicidal thoughts. The women sent a letter this weekend to the pope’s envoy running the Legion to denounce the manipulation, deception and disrespect they say they suffered at the hands of counselors barely older than themselves at the Rhode Island school. For some, the trauma required years of psychological therapy that cost them tens of thousands of dollars.

4 suspects named Fast and Furious information made public By WHITNEY PHILLIPS Associated Press


UCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities made a rare disclosure Monday linked to the botched gun-smuggling investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious, revealing identities and requesting the public’s help in capturing four fugitives accused in the shooting death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent 18 months ago. The announcement comes in the wake of pressure from U.S. House Republicans who led a vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, criticizing the nation’s top prosecutor for withholding information related to the probe. Operation Fast and Furious was launched in 2009 to catch trafficking kingpins, but federal agents lost track of most of the weapons they were trying to trace. Some of the guns purchased illegally with the government’s knowledge were later found at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S. Critics have hammered federal authorities for allowing informants to walk away from Phoenix-area gun shops with weapons, rather than immediately arresting suspects and seizing firearms. Since the fatal shootout near the U.S.-Mexico line in December 2010, deep flaws in the government’s weapons trafficking case have come

to light, and federal authorities have repeatedly declined to disclose information related to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, such as what became of the gun used to kill him. The release of the suspects’ identities in a newly unsealed indictment Monday came with the offer of a $1 million reward for information leading to their capture. It marked the first time all five people accused of being involved in the shooting were named by authorities. The FBI says it is seeking information related to 31-year-old Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, 34-year-old Ivan Soto-Barraza, 34-year-old Hera-

clio Osorio-Arellanes and Lionel Portillo-Meza. Portillo-Meza’s age and birthplace were unavailable. The other three fugitives were born in Mexico, but their hometowns were not available. Authorities had previously released the identity of the fifth suspect, Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, of El Fuerte in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. His age was not immediately available. All five have been charged with murder. They also face charges of assaulting four federal agents. Manuel Osorio-Arellanes has been in custody since the night of the shooting. He has pleaded not guilty in the case.

WASHINGTON — A new law will let companies contribute billions of dollars less to their workers’ pension funds, raising concerns about weakening the plans that millions of Americans count on for retirement. But with many companies already freezing or getting rid of pension plans, many critics are reluctant to force the issue. Some expect the changes, passed by Congress last month and signed Friday by President Barack Obama, to have little impact on the nation’s enormous $1.9 trillion in estimated pension fund assets. And it is more important, they suggest, to avoid giving employers a new reason to limit or jettison remaining pension benefits by forcing them to contribute more than they say they can manage. The equation underscores a harsh reality for unions, consumer advocates and others who normally go to the mat for workers and retirees: When it comes to battling over pensions, the fragile economy of 2012 gives the business community a lot of leverage. “That wouldn’t do our Nearly half of members any Americans say good” if the govthey are count- ernment forces ing heavily on companies to make pension their pensions contributions for retirement, they can’t afford, according to an said Karen FeldAssociated man, benefits policy specialist Press-LifeGoesSfor the AFL-CIO, poll the giant labor conducted last federation that supported the October.

The short-term contribution cuts worry University of Pennsylvania insurance professor Olivia S.

Yet times are rough for pensions. Only 15 percent of private sector workers participate in defined benefit plans, which guarantee company-paid monthly retirement payments.

Officials bemoan deer stands The Associated Press

DULUTH, Minn. — Some Minnesota hunters are upgrading their deer stands, trading the traditional nailed-together hunks of wood for what one official calls “mansions” in trees on public property. St. Louis County officials are seeing deer stands — platforms perched in trees to help hunters more easily spot deer — with stairways, decks, shingled roofs, commercial windows, insulation, propane heaters, carpeting, lounge chairs, tables and even the occasional generator, the Duluth News Tribune reported Sunday Some hunters have even planted crops near their stands in hopes of attracting deer, said St. Louis County Land Commissioner Bob Krepps. He said hunters have also cut down trees near their stand to improve sight lines. “We’re getting overbuilt,” Krepps said. “We’re seeing mansions out there — basically hunting shacks on stilts.” Private landowners can do what they want, Krepps said, but

tax-forfeited land makes up nearly 1 million acres of county forest, and is supposedly open to all hunters. Hunters who customize stands in these areas are inappropriately claiming public land as their own, he said. “A lot of these cross the line of what’s appropriate,” Krepps said. “If I’m out walking and come across one of these buildings on posts, am I going to feel welcome to hunt there? Probably not. And if I do, there’s likely to be a fight. That shouldn’t happen on land that belongs to everyone.” One deer stand was 18 feet wide and 20 feet long; county officials said it was more like a cabin. And officials have even found some stands on public property with locks on the doors. Traditional wooden stands are often abandoned to rot in the woods. In Loving Memory of

Nuangola gives up fees Little interest is shown by owners of undeveloped property in sewer project. By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA – Because of what he said was a “lack of interest,” Ray Shirk, a member of the borough sewer authority, said that a proposal to have owners of undeveloped property share engineering costs for tying into the proposed sanitary sewage system will have to be abandoned. Shirk’s proposal, which was adopted by a vote of the other members of the authority, came at Monday evening’s meeting of the authority. He said out of 180190 letters mailed to property owners, he received only 39 responses. As a result, it was decided to have Shirk send letters to those respondents stating that at this time a connection plan is not available to them. The decision comes at a period when the authority is on the doorstep of resolving several issues which are important to the implementation of the project

this summer. One issue is the resolution of a $309,000 loan dating from 2007 with Citizens Bank. In May, the auShirk thority acted to effect a full settlement with the bank by August 5. However, just a little more than three weeks in advance of this date, the authority members learned Monday that interest payments on the loan are in arrears. It was stated in a letter from bank officials, that only one-half of the payment, $551.20, was remitted in May. In addition, a June payment of $1,316.76 is, as of July 5, past due. Under a plan devised at the outset of the sewer project, borough council assumed responsibility for loan payments. According to comment at the meeting, Council failed to make remittances on time. Ted Vancosky, who serves as councilman besides being treasurer of the authority, said he would discuss the matter at the July 16 meeting of council. The authority presently has

$5,053.60 remaining from proceeds of a $25,000 loan provided by the Mountain Top Area Joint Sanitary Authority. Of that amount, Vancosky’s financial report lists $452.88 in a checking account and $4,600.72 in a money market. On the subject of money, Dave Pekar, chairman, said more than $2 million in U.S. Department of Agriculture funds, which was designated for the sewer project, is intended to be utilized to offset cost overruns the authority has experienced since 2007. U.S. Senator Bob Casey, D-Scranton, announced last week that the funds, $1,358,000 in a loan and a $987,600 grant, have been approved by the USDA for Nuangola. Pekar said while the funding is available, the borough won’t receive a direct payment, but rather will be reimbursed after filing the appropriate paperwork for the cost of individual phases of the sewer project as they occur. Also, before going into an executive session, the authority voted to approve a lease proposal with Steve Boyer for land which is intended to serve as a staging area.

Wyoming gets sewer update By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

WYOMING -- Borough Engineer Mike Amato gave a presentation on Monday night, updating council on proposed sewage and drainage projects in the community. According to Amato, extensive engineering studies have been done throughout the borough and $1 million received through a state grant will be used in “unsewaged areas” along Stites Street and Shulde Lane where nearly 60 residents will be

connected to the borough’s current sewage system. Amato went on to explain that perennial problem areas along East Eighth and Dennison streets which see standing water after moderate rainfall will need further study by the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority and PennDOT to determine the scope of work to follow. Borough Mayor Robert Boyer said that officials are aware of the widespread sewage issues due to an aging system and that

each problem or damaged area will receive consideration by council on a priority basis, as money allows. Council recently enacted a $200 annual surcharge to residents for repairs to the sewage system. In other business, “Little Miss Wyoming Library” Grace Washney addressed council about upcoming renovations at the borough library and also stressed the need for litter control throughout the community.

Feds fight Bulger try to oust judge from trial The Associated Press

BOSTON — Former mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s request to remove the judge at his upcoming trial is “frivolous and unsubstantiated” and should be dismissed, federal prosecutors said Monday in a court filing. Their motion also calls “absurd” a related claim by Bulger’s attorney that the one-time FBI informant shouldn’t be prosecuted on charges he participated in 19 murders because the government promised him immunity for past and future crimes. Bulger’s attorney J.W. Carney Jr. filed a motion last month to remove Judge Richard Stearns because he was a top federal prosecutor during a period when Bulger is accused of having committed crimes with impunity. The defense motion argued that the judge would do what he could to shield his former colleagues and could not be impartial. Carney said he might call the judge as a witness. Carney had said he would file a motion to dismiss the charges

against Bulger, who’s 82, because “a representative of the federal government” gave Bulger blanket immunity during the 1970s. A former Bulger cohort, who also was an FBI informant, used a similar defense, which was re-

jected by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The cohort is serving a life sentence. Prosecutors said Bulger “has utterly failed to identify anyone who supposedly promised the defendant immunity from prosecution for committing such crimes as murder. Thus, there is no factual basis for the motion and it should be summarily denied.” They said the claims in the recusal motion “are little more than unsubstantiated speculation.” Bulger was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., last year after 16 years on the run. His trial has been set for next March. His girlfriend, Catherine Greig, who was captured with him, pleaded guilty last March to conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, identity fraud and conspiracy. She admitted she helped Bulger while he was a fugitive, using false identities, accompanying him to medical appointments and picking up his prescriptions. She was sentenced to eight years in prison.

County lawyers strike out Judge rules new attorneys must handle Triple-A suit against Lackawanna County. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County officials must hire a new lawyer to handle the county’s litigation over its stake in the Triple-A baseball franchise because a judge disqualified the current one. The county has a pending lawsuit arguing Lackawanna County is legally required to give Luzerne half the proceeds if the jointly purchased franchise is sold. Lackawanna filed a countersuit

INSIDE: More on SWB Yankees, stadium, Pages 1B, 5B

arguing Luzerne County isn’t entitled to any proceeds and owes Lackawanna millions of dollars for past stadium repairs. As part of that litigation, Lackawanna County argued Luzerne County’s law firm, Pittsburghbased Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellot, LLC, should be disqualified because the firm previously represented Lackawanna as a bond counsel. Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas Judge Harold Thomson issued an order July 5 favoring Lackawanna County. Luzerne County Manager Rob-

ert Lawton said the county will obtain new counsel. He stressed the ruling was isolated to the legal counsel issue. “The decision does not reflect in any way upon the merits of Luzerne County’s claim for its rightful share of any proceeds from the franchise sale,” Lawton said. The Lackawanna County Multi-Purpose Stadium Authority, also named as a defendant in the suit, sold the franchise in April for $14.6 million to SWB Yankees LLC, a joint venture of the New York Yankees and Mandalay Baseball Properties. The sale kicked off a $43 million reconstruction of PNC Field, which will return the team to its Moosic home in 2013.

Hanover Twp. cracks down on dogs, cats By SCOTT L. GOMB Times Leader Correspondent

HANOVER TWP. -- Commissioners took measures to control cats and dogs in the township at Monday night’s meeting. Commissioners said the move is necessary to stop owners from letting their pets run free and disturbing the peace and to prevent them from injuring someone. The ordinance does not limit the number of dogs a resident may own and some residents didn’t like that aspect of it. Residents argued that some

pet owners might take it to extreme measures and have more pets than they can handle. They felt that it could contribute to excessive barking, bad smells and lowered property values. “Nobody wants a home with 17 dogs next to them,” said Connie Hartman. Commissioners said the ordinance will help residents rather than hurt them. It will allow the township to issue citations to pet owners who fail to abide by the law and provide enforcement of Pennsylvania’s dog law.

“If the dogs are well behaved and aren’t a nuisance, you can have 100,” said Commissioner Jeffrey Lewis. A separate ordinance was passed dealing with cats. In other business, the commissioners: • Approved a payment of $95,423 for work on the Truesdale Terrace and Witinski Villa sewer project. • Said they will submit a letter to the Luzerne County Planning Commission to consider resurfacing the Sans Souci Parkway.

Fighters of wildfires want health insurance Many firefighters are now asking to buy into a federal government health plan. By DAN ELLIOTT Associated Press

DENVER — They work the front lines of the nation’s most explosive wildfires, navigating treacherous terrain, dense walls of smoke and tall curtains of flame. Yet thousands of the nation’s seasonal firefighters have no health insurance for themselves or their families. Many firefighters are now asking to buy into a federal govern-

ment health plan, largely out of anger over a colleague who was left with a $70,000 hospital bill after his son was born prematurely. Their request has been bolstered by more than 125,000 signatures gathered in an online petition during this year’s historic fire season in the West and the ongoing national debate over health care. “You pray you don’t get sick,” said firefighter John Lauer, a member of the Tatanka Hotshots crew based in Custer, S.D., who recently worked the massive High Park Fire in northern Colorado and started the petition. The fire crews are heroes to

those in the path of the flames. Politicians praise their bravery. Grateful residents buy them pizzas and send thank-you cards. “That’s what makes the job great,” Lauer said. “But sometimes I wonder to myself. I wonder if people know we’re uninsured.” Firefighters do get workers’ compensation if they are hurt on the job, but that doesn’t cover them in the offseason. The National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho, which coordinates firefighting efforts nationwide, says 15,000 wildland firefighters are on the federal payroll this year.

By SUSAN DENNEY Times Leader Correspondent

WARRIOR RUN -- Borough Engineer Paul Pasonick expressed concern about the Truesdale Terrace/Witinski Villa project in Hanover Township, which impacts the borough. He told the council that as the project progresses, Reilly Associates is supposed to provide him with documentation of the projects completed. Pasonick has received two reports. He said the contractor was supposed to notify him if there was work being done in the borough, but did not. Pasonick said, “There’s no mention of the sanitary sewer or clay dike” in the documentation he had received. A clay dike in the sewer project near Holly Street was planned to help protect borough property from groundwater coming from the Hanover Township project. One resident yelled out, “If they don’t have photos, they’ll have to dig it up!” Another resident complained about an encroachment on his daughter’s property, saying that she wanted to erect a fence where there is now a paved road. Pasonick said that he would get maps to see if the property lines on the adjoining properties agree. Borough Solicitor Pyrah said that he would look into easements and other options the borough might have in addressing the situation. In regular business, the borough council formally accepted the $75,000 community development grant from Luzerne County. Karen Hazleton, Warrior Run Borough Auditor, presented her report to the council. She reported that the borough barely collected enough sewer fees this year to pay the debt service on their PennVest loan for sewer construction. She said that real estate tax collection was up by $25,000 over last year, but that sewer fee collection was substantially less than last year. Hazleton reminded the council that the final payment on the borough’s loan comes due in 2029. The borough has over $344,000 in the sewer fund but must keep that money in reserve to pay the off the loan of $691,000. She suggested that the council consider ways to collect delinquent sewer fees. The fees are collected by the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority.

Is area a depot for dead-end jobs?


HESE DAYS, A job opening – any job opening – is nothing to sneeze at. So plenty of eager would-be workers should take heart in Gov. Tom Corbett’s announcement Monday that upscale clothing retailer Neiman Marcus Group plans to open a distribution center in Luzerne County, employing 150 or more people. Presumably, however, most men and women hired to move merchandise at this Jenkins Township warehouse will work for modest hourly wages and won’t be in the market to buy, for instance, a men’s $450 Brioni ostrich belt or the Jason Wu beaded-neck satin dress as seen at Neiman Marcus online for $2,595. Even a relative “deal” – say, the $225 Phoebe Couture combination printed maxi dress – might require a prolonged effort at pinching pennies. And therein lies the ongoing problem for Northeastern Pennsylvania and its people. Its workforce never successfully transitioned from the Industrial Age to the Information Age, leaving too many of us in an in-between age, pushing products manufactured in foreign nations to buyers in

more affluent parts of this one. Whisk down Interstate 81 between Avoca and Hazleton, and you won’t see industrial parks populated by high-tech businesses that pump out medical devices or computer components. Instead, we are fast becoming a warehouse junction, where Home Depot, and other big firms temporarily store their stuff. While lucrative for the developers of these hulking buildings, this setup doesn’t bode well for the fortunes of most Luzerne County working-class families. They need more full-time positions – with ample salaries and benefits packages. And room for advancement. Through the decades, area residents too often have been let down by their elected officials. Public corruption and poor policymaking have conspired to chase away many true economic-development opportunities. Consequently, this region is left today with an economy far too dependent on the whims of U.S. consumers – whose fickleness rapidly can push entire inventories, and stores, out of fashion. Yes, we have jobs on the way. Fully outfitted is what we need.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “As governor, I am honoring my promise to bring the Pennsylvania economy back and grow privatesector jobs.” Tom Corbett The governor announced Monday that retailer Neiman Marcus Group will open a distribution center in Jenkins Township, creating an estimated 150 jobs. The state wooed the company here, in part, with nearly $900,000 in grants and tax credits.


Public’s safety must be priority


N TIGHT financial times, many cities save money by outsourcing municipal services such as clerical work to private companies. But there is no service more central than public safety, which should remain the responsibility of public agencies. The case of a fired lifeguard in Florida shows why. Beachgoers brought lifeguard Tomas Lopez’s attention to a man foundering in shallow water. Lopez raced to the scene; by then, the man had been pulled to the beach but had water in his lungs. Lopez tended to him until medical help arrived. The swimmer survived, but not Lopez’s job. His employer, an aquatics company that provides lifeguard services to the city of Hallandale Beach, decided that he had quite literally crossed the line by running to an area that was not part of the company’s contracted responsibility, exposing it to possible liability. Several other lifeguards quit in protest. And after a nationwide outcry, the company offered all of the guards their jobs back, saying that, in EDITORIAL BOARD

fact, Lopez hadn’t left his sector of the beach unprotected. But the lifeguards aren’t going back. Lopez was paid just $8.25 an hour, a little more than Florida’s minimum wage. He and his fellow guards could make close to the same money flipping burgers rather than taking responsibility for strangers’ lives. And their employer, Jeff Ellis Management Co., still doesn’t get it. The issue isn’t whether another lifeguard was available to cover Lopez’s turf. Government agencies have a long history of mutual aid when it comes to providing public safety; they go to the rescue of people outside their boundaries when needed. They hire employees for reasonable pay and expect them to serve the public good. There’s a lot that government can’t afford anymore. But when we take shortcuts on our responsibility to rescue one another in life-or-death emergencies, we abandon the most basic function of communal welfare. Los Angeles Times

Youth violence threatens very fabric of our community WHEN AN assailant near school grounds almost severed the hand of 15year-old Marquis Allen in broad daylight, a city cringed. Talk of racial tensions between blacks and Dominicans grew from street whisper to court testimony. District officials mobilized to tamp down problems and ramp up solutions. Allen himself poured the strongest suppressant on the growing flames by showing off his reattached hand while sporting “Redemption” on his T-shirt, no word of anger from his lips. When someone shot and killed 14-yearold Tyler Winstead in the early evening near his home, a city stirred. “Building Bridges” was born, a ground-up response to an assault on our social fabric. Violence threatens our present; violence to children destroys the future. The Rev. Shawn Walker explained it succinctly at one Bridges meeting: “I want to live well, but I want to live well right here in the city of Wilkes-Barre.” On Saturday evening the poison crossed the Susquehanna River. A 21-year old and two teenagers – one of them 15-year-old Lisa Abaunza – were shot dead before the sun set. Another teen was critically

Invest in U.S. education, not in business tax cuts


here is a link between education and jobs, and business knows this. Businesses need access to an educated workforce that can do the complicated jobs that pay well. So what is the logic in Pennsylvania in not replacing at least some of the $900 million in federal aid that ran out after the stimulus funding expired? All over the commonwealth schools are reducing the number of teachers and clos-


ing programs. One troubled school district in the state, Reading, is laying off 110 teachers and entirely ending kindergarten. Do we think that cutting almost $1 billion from our schools and granting $250 million to businesses through tax cuts is going to create great school districts that attract good businesses? Is this the way to improve our schools and produce a highly skilled workforce? U.S. students continue to trail their peers in many nations. The United States ranks 14th in reading, 17th in science and 25th in math. Do we think that the United States will be able to maintain its prominence as an international leader in science, innovation and productivity with this kind of student performance? Will disinvesting in education improve this performance? Do our leaders have any goals for Pennsylvania other than spending as little of our tax revenues as possible on us as citizens – and instead transferring revenue to business? This is a state with an old population, many of whom are getting by on Social Security, Medicare, and state and local government retirement programs. The next generation won’t have these retirement benefits; we are dismantling them. Can’t we at least give today’s kids a leg up by assuring that they get excellent educations? Can’t we at least give them a shot at creating better futures for themselves? Nancy Thaler Tunkhannock

cuffs as they were brought in for arraignment. “We knew it was the same guys,” Kevin said. “They’re lucky we didn’t know who they were at the hospital.” Hamilton and Davis were at Geisinger Wyoming Valley to visit their cousin, Kenyatta Hughston, 22, who suffered two gunshot wounds to the head in a daylight shooting on Jay Street, Wilkes-Barre, just after12:30 p.m. on Friday. The Handelongs, who live in Stroudsburg, were married in April – Susana is the mother of four and Kevin has five children. They met with The Times Leader to talk about the shootings and Nicholas and Daniel. Funeral bills and surgery It’s been a difficult few days for the Handelongs – she is trying to figure out how to pay for Nicholas’ funeral and coping with Daniel’s condition – he was scheduled for another surgery Monday afternoon. Susana Handelong was candid in not defending Nicholas, whom she described as a troubled child. She said Daniel is a good kid who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. According to Susana, Daniel and his fiancée, Ashley Bryant, were living at the 401 First St., Plymouth apartment and the recently engaged couple had a baby, Izabella, born on June 1. She

On Friday, Kenyatta Hughston, 22, suffered two gunshot wounds to the head in a daylight shooting on Jay Street just after 12:30 p.m., Wilkes-Barre police said. Deputy Police Chief Donald Crane said a black male was seen running away after Hughston was shot. None of the victims in the Plymouth shootings were black. Hughston also was listed in critical condition on Monday at Geisinger Wyoming Valley. “The two half brothers said it was their cousin shot in WilkesBarre,”saidstatepoliceLt.Richard Krawetz, commander of the criminal investigation unit at Troop P. “Obviously, we’re communicating with Wilkes-Barre police and the (Luzerne County) district attor-

Detective William Shultz said Hamilton failed to appear for Rentko’s preliminary hearing. “We can pick it up at any time,” Shultz said about the possibility of refiling charges against Rentko. • Then there is the case



Susana Handelong of Stroudsburg talks about her sons Nicholas and Daniel Maldonado, who were two of the four people shot in Plymouth Saturday night in what appears to be a drug deal gone bad.

said Nicholas and Bradley Swartwood would be at the apartment often. “Danny and Ashley had a fight Friday night,” she said. “Ashley took Izabella to her mother’s house. She feels if she took Danny with her, he wouldn’t have been in that apartment when the shootings occurred.” Handelong said getting information on the conditions of her sons was slow. Daniel’s fiancée received a call from the building’s landlord and then called Handelong. They met at the Plymouth Borough Building. “At first I thought my kids were OK,” she said. “I sat there for a half hour before I was told to go to Geisinger.”

Arriving at the hospital, Handelong said she still wasn’t told everything. She said she found out Daniel was in surgery, but she wondered where Nicholas was. “I thought maybe Nicholas shot Danny,” she said. “Then we learned of all these Facebook messages – ‘rest in peace Nicholas.’ That’s how we found out Nicholas was dead. “I should have been told.” Handelong said she’s never been in denial about her kids. She said Nicholas was troubled – he was bi-polar and had serious anger issues. “But he was a loving kid, too,” she said, fighting back tears. “He loved his family.”

Handelong said Nicholas was in and out of rehab centers for several years of his young life. She said he got into marijuana and hung out with the wrong crowd. “Once he got into marijuana, things just escalated,” Handelong said. “But none of us, especially Danny, knew the extent to which Nicholas was involved. He and Brad (Swartwood) were partners.” Handelong said Daniel was a hard worker. He had a job at First Hospital in Kingston where he performed environmental maintenance. She said Bryant worked at a pizza shop until she had the baby. “Danny earned his money,” his

ney’s office on that case. At the present time, there is nothing to indicate there is a connection.” Investigators believe Hamilton and Davis, who are listed on arrest affidavits as being from Nanticoke, visited Hughston several hours after their alleged involvement in a deadly shooting inside the apartment in Plymouth. “The shooters from Saturday and the victim from the shooting on Friday are related,” District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said. “It doesn’t mean that the two incidents are connected. Until we have evidence to prove that they are connected, it doesn’t seem to me like there is a connection.” State police said the deadly Plymouth shooting occurred during a drug deal involving marijuana and heroin. State police allege in arrest records that Davis pulled out a .40caliber pistol and shot Nicholas MaldonadowhenMaldonadoreached for heroin packets. Davis allegedly told his half brother, Hamilton, that “he couldn’t leave any witnesses” and

shot Swartwood, Danny Maldonado and Abaunza, according to arrest records. Krawetz said investigators have an idea where Davis obtained the gun but wouldn’t elaborate. “We’re still back tracking that weapon,” Krawetz said. “We have an idea but not confirmed. We’re following up on that information this week.” “Even though we made the arrest quickly, it is in the beginning of the investigation of what occurred that night,” Salavantis said. “Once we delve deeper into the investigation, we’ll find out more.” Swartwood was scheduled for a trial in county court on Aug. 6 on charges Hanover Township police allegedly found marijuana and the synthetic drug ecstasy after serving a search warrant at his residence in the Sans Souci Trailer Park on Aug. 7, 2011, according to court records. Swartwood was released from the county correctional facility on Jan. 20 on $5,000 unsecured bail. Abaunza was a student at Scranton Prep High School, a Catholic


about the thefts of Polo socks and Polo underwear from Macy’s Department Store in the Wyoming Valley Mall. A private criminal complaint was filed by Macy’s loss prevention officers charging Hamilton, 18, and his cousin, Daquan Hamilton, 18, with retail theft on Dec. 14. The complaint alleges Hamilton stole Polo socks, underwear and undershirts after purchasing a sweatshirt and sweatpants. Hamilton gave the stolen merchandise to Daquan Hamilton, who stole a leather coat, according to the private com-

plaint. Retail theft citations were filed against Hamilton and Daquan Hamilton with District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre Township. The citations remain open. State police at Wyoming say on Saturday night Hamilton and his half brother, Sawud Davis, 16, went back to Macy’s in the mall to buy clothes after they allegedly killed three people and critically injured another in a shooting in Plymouth. Hamilton wore the new clothes and allegedly discarded

pany that are going to be asked if they want to consider a move.” Jenkins Township manager Bob Jones said he had heard nothing about the deal until contacted by a reporter Monday morning. In the press release, Neiman Marcus Group Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Jim Skinner is quoted as saying “The new facility is strategically located to allow us to better serve our customers and stores in the northeast. After successfully operating stores in Pennsylvania for over 15 years, we look forward to expanding our presence in the state.” While the move is good news for job seekers in the region and for the township, CenterPoint was at the heart of corruption charges against former Township Supervisor Russell Arnone.

HAZLE TWP. – No injuries were reported in a two-vehicle crash in the parking lot at Friendly’s Restaurant on state Route 93 on Monday. State police at Hazleton said Terence John Hassell, 65, of United Kingdom, operating a 2013 Ford Explorer, turned into the parking lot and struck a 2011 Mazda 3, operated by a 16-year-old from Freeland, at about 2 p.m.

mother said. “He bought Ashley an engagement ring and proposed to her.” Now those plans are on hold as Daniel fights for his life. His mother and step-father are trying to come up with the money to bury Nicholas, whose biological father, Daniel Sr., wants to take him to New Jersey for interment. “I’m not opposed to that,” Handelong said. “But this is all so hard to go through.” Kevin Handelong works at Tobyhanna Army Depot. He was scheduled to leave for Alaska this week, but he asked for time to be with his wife and family as they cope with one deceased son and another in critical condition.

Son’s history of drug use Susana Handelong said there’s “no doubt” Nicholas got caught up in things he shouldn’t have. She said he had a court case coming up this Friday. “I was hoping they would put him in rehab again,” she said. “I thought maybe if he was in a detention center or jail, he might get some counseling.” “He’d be off drugs,” Kevin said. Susana Handelong said Nicholas earned his G.E.D. and Daniel graduated from Greater Nanticoke Area High School. She said Daniel and Ashley were learning how to be parents. They were trying to make a new life for themselves and Izabella. Daniel worked days and some nights to pay the rent and provide for Ashley and Izabella. “Thank God that baby wasn’t there Saturday,” Kevin said. As Daniel Maldonaldo struggles for his life, his mother said the outpouring of support from family, friends and co-workers has been invaluable. Daniel was shot in the head and another bullet went through his arm and into his abdomen, piercing his liver and intestines. “Danny didn’t know what his brother was into,” she said. “I can’t defend Nicholas, but I loved him – he was my son.” Then Kevin ended the conversation. Speaking of the three deceased, he said, “They all got caught up in something that took their lives.”

Autopsies performed Monday by forensic pathologist Dr. Mary Pascucci determined Bradley Swartwood, Nicholas Maldonado and Lisa Abaunza died from multiple gunshot wounds, Luzerne County Acting Coroner William Lisman said. Their deaths have been ruled homicides. Pascucci conducted the autopsies beginning at 8 a.m. and ending just after 3 p.m. at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.

State police believe Hamilton then went to The Finish Line to buy sneakers and was asked by a clerk what happened to the sneakers he was wearing, which appeared to be blood-stained.

Judge Fred Pierantoni said two black ski Selenski masks and any hair and debris slides that can be looked at through a microscope should be handed over to the firm for examination and testing. Selenski, 38, faces the death penalty if convicted in the killing of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski, both 37. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski on May 3, 2002. Selenski is scheduled to stand trial on Sept. 10. Pierantoni said once testing is complete, a report will be made available to defense attorneys. The judge on Friday also allowed attorneys in the case to have additional time to find court papers, after defense attorneys said they would not meet a July 10 deadline, and needed copies of transcripts from recent hearings.

Sox fan hired to lead Yankees New president/GM Rob Crain looks to increase promotions, reach out to community to help attendance.

conference to name the leadership team at PNC Field. Crain grew up mere minutes from Boston’s Fenway Park. When the Sox won their first World Series in 86 years in 2004, he was celebrating on Lansdowne Street. But nevertheless he’s excited. And now, he knows it’s all business. “When you’re in this business, you kind of put your fanhood aside,” Crain said. “To work for a world-class organization like the Yankees is an honor and I can’t wait. I’m glad to be a part of the Yankee family. “If you had asked me that question when I was, like, 15 years old I would’ve

MOOSIC — Just mention the word Yankees to Red Sox fans and some sort of dispute is sure to follow. Rob Crain will have to try not to do that from now on. A lifelong Red Sox fan and native of Burlington, Mass., he was introduced as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s president and general manager on Monday at a press See CRAIN, Page 5B


Stadium renovation on schedule

MOOSIC — Despite recent hot temperatures, the conditions have been perfect for construction crew working on the renovations at PNC Field and the project is right on schedule. “Usually the guys we have here are good group of people and are used to working in all types of weather,” said John Baer, project superintendent for Construction Manager Alvin H. Butz, Inc. “Construction industry has to like the cold and like the hot because you’re always in the weather. We’re fortunate that the driest and low wind actually

helped us now more than anything. With high wind we can’t do any demolition and with dryness it makes it unsafe for us to work because we can slip and fall. “Otherwise, as long as we hydrate ourselves, we’re fine.” The entire upper deck of PNC Field has been torn down with 500 truckloads of debris taken out and approximately 3,000 tons of steel being recycled, according to Mandalay Baseball Properties CEO Art Matin. Baer said on Monday that the crew is nearing the end of the demolition process and sometime next month people

will begin to see steel structures going up and additions like new suites on the first base side and visitors clubhouse to follow. “We’re trying to get everything done before the winter weather comes,” Baer noted. “Right now, this is a part we don’t expect to stop for weather. Some processes are temperature sensitivity. And hopefully by the grace of God we have a good winter that we had last year.” RUBY’S TAKE Jeremy Ruby was with the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre organization since 1998

and left for a few years before returning and being named as executive vice president of baseball operations on Monday. He has been around the club for a long time starting as an intern before working his way up to general manager. Seeing the stadium as it is today was eye-popping for him. “I never dreamed of seeing it like this. Everything’s gone even the outfield wall. It’s incredible,” he said. “I never thought I’d see this day. “But I’m here and I’m part of it and See STADIUM, Page 5B


Prince Fielder crowned king of Home Run Derby

Tigers first baseman hits 28 homers to become the second player to win the event multiple times. By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer


Detroit’s Prince Fielder hit 12 of his 28 home runs in the final round of Monday’s Home Run Derby in Kansas City. The slugger’s longest shot went an estimated 476 feet, best among all eight competitors.


Just waiting for the day when they win



PNC Field has already had its upper deck removed as the massive project makes progress despite the heat wave that hit the area this summer. The stadium is on track to re-open next spring for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees to return for the 2013 season.

runs over three rounds to cap the main event on the eve of the All-Star game, hitting the long drive of the night at 476 feet into the water. Ken Griffey Jr. won three titles, in 1994, 1998 and 1999. While the ball stayed out of McCovey Cove during the 2007 Derby at San Francisco’s AT&T Park and the right-field swimming pool last year at Chase Field in Phoenix, there was plenty of aquatic activity in Kansas City, second only to Rome for most fountains in cities around the world. After three splash shots among his five homers in the first round, Fielder started off the second round as the

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Detroit’s Prince Fielder became only the second player to win multiple titles in the All-Star Home Run Derby, thrilling the crowd at Kauffman Stadium with eight splash shots into the rightfield fountain and beating Toronto’s Jose Bautista 12-7 in the final Monday night. On a night when the Yankees’ Robinson Cano was repeatedly booed and went homerless, Fielder put on the most powerful display among baseball’s big boppers.

s outfielder Jason Pridie waited for the ground ball to arrive in his glove, Braves batter Andrelton Simmons never hesitated heading for second base. And while the hustle of Simmons turned a routine single into a double, what happened at the other end of the play painted a perfect picture of the season’s first half for the Philadelphia Phillies. While the Phillies were waiting, everyone else in the National League East passed them by. They’ve been waiting for the big hit, waiting for their big hitters to return, waiting for someone to solidify their struggling bullpen since the season started. Now their fans are waiting for them to get out of last place. “Have I tried everything? I think I have,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. “I’ll keep trying. I’m definitely open for suggestions.” To suggest the five-time defending National League East champion Phillies suddenly slipped to the depths of despair may be overstating things. But instead of creating ways to win these days, they’re finding ways to lose. “We had a real tough first half,” Manuel said. “We’re in the game, we’re playing. We just don’t play good enough to win. Something happens that we don’t execute, or we make mistakes.” How do you explain that? Well, catcher Carlos Ruiz – the team’s best hitter with a .350 batting average and 13 home runs – wasn’t in the mood for talking about it. Neither was shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who brushed off reporters Sunday and headed out of the clubhouse and into the All-Star Break. Chase Utley never showed up at his locker and neither did Ryan Howard, but then, nobody’s seen much of them all season. These are the guys who form the core of Phillies teams that won those five straight division titles, played in three National League Championship Series and won one World Series while playing in another over the past five seasons. Forgive them if they don’t care to talk about a flub of a first half, because there’s really not a whole lot to talk about for a Phillies team that’s 37-50 and 14 games out of first place after just getting swept in a threegame home series against the Braves. Shane Victorino, the fifth regular in that lineup of core Phillies who’ve known so much success, was originally penciled into Sunday’s lineup but was pulled out when Manuel noticed his star center fielder was disheartened. “He was down because of his performance,” Manuel said. “He was upset. I felt it best to just take him out of the lineup.” So Pridie, just promoted from Triple-A Lehigh Valley last month, was inserted into Victorino’s spot and drove in all three Phillies runs in a 4-3 loss to the Braves. Take away his contribution, and the Phillies have scored three runs in three games while getting swept by the Braves after Utley and Howard both returned to the lineup after missing most of this season with injuries. So much for waiting until the big bats got back into Philadelphia’s batting order. “We’re not happy, the way we’ve played,” Pridie said. “This team is very potent. No reason why we can’t win a lot of games.” Well, there is. When you spend a season waiting for something to happen, hungrier teams eventually catch you by surprise.

U.S. hoops moving on without Wade


Russell Westbrook will try to replace the recovering Heat star in the backcourt for Coach K. By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

Solo gets warning from USADA after drug test

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — U.S. national team goalkeeper Hope Solo has received a public warning from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Monday after she tested positive for the banned substance Canrenone in a urine test. Solo has accepted the warning and will still play for the United States in the Olympic tournament. The 30-year-old Solo tested positive for Canrenone in a test on June 15. She says she took a medication prescribed by her doctor for pre-menstrual issues and did not know it contained a diuretic.

LAS VEGAS — Russell Westbrook was so good in Game 4 of the NBA Finals that Kobe Bryant couldn’t turn it off. Bryant watched only one game in its entirety, and not surprisingly that was it. Westbrook scored 43 points, making 20 of 32 shots in a spectacular performance, but his Oklahoma City Thunder fell 104-98 in Miami. “He just was bonkers,” Bryant said. Good as Westbrook was, he couldn’t beat Dwyane Wade. Now the Americans need him to be Dwyane Wade. With Wade unable to play this summer, his former U.S. Olympic teammates believe Westbrook is the player who can inherit his role from Beijing as

the potent scorer and game-changer off the bench. “Absolutely, because he’s that type of player,” LeBron James said. “He’s that attacker, he’s that guy that can get in the passing lane, create steals. D-Wade, he changed the momentum when he came into the game. We told him we just want him to score, score the basketball, play high intensity on defense and he did that.” Wade underwent left knee surgery Monday in Miami and is expected to be ready in time for the Heat’s training camp. The Americans think they can be better this summer than the 2008 gold medalists, but it will be difficult to replace Wade, who seemed to be playing at another speed in Beijing. “One of the things that D-Wade brought to our team in Beijing was he created extra possessions for us,” Bryant said. “He shot the passing lanes extremely well. He got a great amount of steals, which created a lot of easy run outs for us, and Russell’s just as good at

that.” Wade was the Americans’ leading scorer in Beijing, averaging 16 points in just 18.8 minutes per game. He made 67 percent of his shots, almost unimaginable for a guard, by blowing by helpless defenders or capitalizing on repeated fast-break opportunities. His status was unclear heading into that summer after he had sat out the end of the NBA season with a knee injury, but it was obvious right from their first exhibition game, when he started in place of an injured James and sparked a rout of Canada, that he was back in top form. He ended the summer by scoring a game-high 27 points to help the U.S. hold off Spain in the gold-medal game. “D-Wade, he was the leading scorer of that team I think, and Russell can do the same thing,” said Kevin Durant, Westbrook’s Thunder teammate. “He can score at will, he’s so athletic, extend possessions for us with his offensive rebounding, his defense. So we’re looking forward to having him out there.”

CAS appoints 12 arbitrators

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Twelve arbitrators will be on duty during the London Olympics to rule quickly on any legal disputes that arise. The Court of Arbitration for Sport announced details Monday of the tribunal it will set up for the Olympics. CAS, the highest court in sports, has had arbitration panels in place at every Olympics since Atlanta in 1996 to resolve disputes over doping, eligibility and other issues. The London tribunal will be presided over by Judge Juan Torruella of Puerto Rico and Gunnar Werner of Sweden, and will consist of 12 arbitrators from 12 countries. All are lawyers or professors specializing in sports law and arbitration. A panel of three arbitrators will convene to hear any dispute and render a decision within 24 hours. It will be operational from July 17 — 10 days before the opening ceremony — until the end of the games Aug. 12.

Federer has yet to decide whether to carry Swiss flag

WIMBLEDON, England — Roger Federer has not decided whether to accept an offer to carry Switzerland’s flag during the opening ceremonies for the London Olympics. Federer says he might give the honor to someone else. The 17-time Grand Slam champion was the Swiss flag-bearer at two other Summer Games. He teamed with Stanislas Wawrinka to win a gold medal in doubles at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Speaking Monday a day after winning his record-tying seventh Wimbledon title, Federer says an announcement on the flag choice could come “in the next 10 days or so.” The opening ceremonies are July 27. The Olympic tennis competition, which is being held at the All England Club, starts the following day.

Report: No Saudi women qualified for Olympics

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — A Saudiowned newspaper says no women from the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom have qualified for the London Olympics. The report adds that Saudi male athletes have qualified to compete in track, equestrian and weightlifting at the games that start in less than three weeks. The pan-Arab daily newspaper AlSharq al-Awsat is an important media tool for Saudi rulers. Saudi leaders have been under pressure to end the practice of sending all-male teams to international competitions. They could face IOC sanctions after the London Games if women are excluded from the country’s Olympic team. The Saudi Embassy in London said two weeks ago that women who qualify will be allowed to compete.

Yet Westbrook isn’t for everybody, and he plays perhaps the NBA’s most scrutinized game. He isn’t a pass-first point guard and he’s prone to awful shooting nights. Perhaps the combination of the Olympic stage and a playing style that suits his skills better will help Westbrook win over his critics. “Maybe, but you know my job is not to worry about that,” he said. “My job is to come in every day and try to get better.” Westbrook doesn’t understand why his game has so many haters, nor does Mike Krzyzewski. But the coach is focused on the good, and on the opportunity for Westbrook to do for him what Wade did. “There’s that potential that Russell can do that,” Krzyzewski said. “I think Russell’s a great player. It baffles me how people can be so critical of him. I think what he does is absolutely sensational. His ball pressure, his offensive rebounding, his athleticism is off the charts.”

Chosen to run in the Olympics for South Africa in the 400 and 4x400 relay, Oscar Pistorius has re-ignited a fierce debate over his right to compete alongside able-bodied athletes. He had a competitive ban overturned in 2008.

The Blade Runner By GERALD IMRAY AP Sports Writer

LONDON — Is manmade material superior to muscle? Are those blades better than real legs? Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee runner, is taking the issue of disabled vs. able-bodied competition into new territory as he prepares for the London Olympics. His inclusion on South Africa’s team clears the way for him to become the first amputee runner to compete in the Olympics. And because it’s the sporting world’s biggest stage, his participation is likely to fire up the long-running debate over whether his flexible, carbon-fiber blades give him an unfair advantage. Pistorius, 25, runs on Cheetah FlexFoot blades, J-shaped limbs that are 16 inches (41 centimeters) long and weigh a little over a pound each. Pistorius, whose lower legs were amputated when he was a baby after he was born without the fibula bones in his shins, has a personal best in the 400 meters of 45.07 seconds — almost two seconds off Michael Johnson’s world record — and ran a 45.20 this year, both inside the top Olympic qualifying time. Never before has a disabled person been such a threat to the able-bodied in a sports event. “There are tens of thousands of people with the same prosthetics I use, but there’s no one running the same times,” Pistorius wrote in a column in a British newspaper last week after he was chosen to run both the individual 400 meters and the 4x400 relay in London. “You’ll always get people who have their opinions on whether I should be competing in London, but they can’t explain my times.” The Blade Runner doesn’t just want to show up at the London Games, flash his photogenic smile and wave, and then retire graciously and let the top runners get on with it. Pistorius wants to be on the track among the eight fin-

est runners in the world when the gold medal is decided on Aug. 6. “It’s a personal dream of his to run in the final at the Olympic Games,” Pistorius’ coach for all his career, Ampie Louw, told The Associated Press. “It’s not qualifying only.” Pistorius told the AP: “My goals are just to be able to look back at my career and know that I didn’t let my talent go to waste. I’m just trying to prove to myself that I can be the best that I want to be.” Sports engineer David James, a senior lecturer at England’s Sheffield Hallam University, disagrees with Pistorius’ inclusion in the Olympics on both scientific and ethical grounds. “Sport is hard-nosed and brutal and bloody and has no place for sob stories. People want Oscar to run and do well. However, will they think the same if he wins?” James said. “I predict a backlash if he wins anything. They will attribute that performance to the blades. I think there would be real implica-

tions if he won.” Pistorius’ case was settled — legally anyway — in 2008 when sports’ highest court lifted the ban from able-bodied events imposed on him by the International Association of Athletics Federations. The Court of Arbitration for Sport said that Pistorius probably gets some advantages from the springy, curved blades, but also suffers some disadvantages, and they even out in the end. James doesn’t agree. “To say he doesn’t have an advantage is stretching it,” the sports engineer said. “When he’s up to speed, he is more efficient than someone with muscle and bone. He can relocate his legs faster because they are lighter.” Hugh Herr, an associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an expert in biomechanics and bionics who has conducted studies on Pistorius, agreed with the decision to reinstate Pistorius, saying there is no evidence the blades give Pistorius an edge. Pistorius’ leg speed is quicker than that of some other athletes but not all of them, Herr said, meaning he’s “not abnormal.” And in terms of the energy he uses and the way he tires, there is, crucially, no difference, Herr said. Pistorius is probably at a disadvantage because he cannot hit the ground as hard as other athletes, the professor said. “The view that he’s a robot that doesn’t fatigue is nonsense,” Herr said. “The science is immature. We don’t know very much, but what we do know says there’s no overall advantage for Pistorius in a 400-meter race.” Sports ethicist and philosopher Ivo van Hilvoorde of Free University in Amsterdam said the South African represents the shifting boundaries between able and disabled sport. “We are used to thinking of disabled as less,” Van Hilvoorde said, “but it could be the other way round. “Oscar Pistorius is a nice example of this.”

LONDON — Residents of a London apartment tower went to court Monday in a bid to stop their rooftop from being used as a missile base during the Olympic Games, saying the deployment in a densely-populated area could make the building a terrorist target. The British military plans to deploy surface-to-air missiles at six sites around London as part of a vast security operation for the July 27-Aug. 12 games. But residents of the 17-story Fred Wigg Tower in Leytonstone, east London, say they were not consulted about the move. Judge Charles Haddon-Cave said he would rule Tuesday on whether residents can seek a judicial review of the plans to put the missiles on their roof. The residents’ lawyer, Marc Willers, told the High Court that his clients had “a fully justified fear that installation or deployment of the missile system on the roof of the Fred Wigg Tower gives rise to the additional risk that the tower itself may become the focus of a terrorist attack.” They claim the missiles breach their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects an individual’s “right to private life and peaceful enjoyment of their home.” Missiles also will be stationed at another apartment building, at a reservoir and farmland in east London and along hillsides in south London. Defense Secretary Philip Hammond has said the missiles — capable of shooting down a hijacked aircraft menacing the Olympic Park — are a prudent part of security precautions intended to provide “both reassurance and a powerful deterrent.” Hammond says objections to the security plans, which also include 7,500 soldiers, RAF fighter jets on standby at nearby air bases and a helicopter carrier on the River Thames, are confined to “a small number of activists.” Intelligence officials say there has been an expected increase in chatter among extremist groups ahead of the Olympics, but there are no specific or credible threats to the games. Britain’s terror threat level remains at substantial, the middle point on a fivepoint scale, meaning an attack is a strong possibility. Over the past week, 14 people have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism activity. Police insist none of the cases are linked to plots against the Summer Games.

Wiggins’ time trial win extends lead

BESANCON, France — If Monday’s time trial at the Tour de France was “the test of truth” — as one top rider called it — then Bradley Wiggins aced it. The Olympic champion, aiming to be the first British winner of cycling’s showcase race, sped to victory in the first big time trial, tightening his grip on the yellow jersey. “That was my physical best out there,” he said. “It’s probably my best time trial ever.” The race against the clock is a discipline Wiggins loves. And it showed in the ninth stage, a 25.8mile ride from Arc-et-Senans to Besancon. He finished 35 seconds ahead of Sky teammate Christopher Froome, the runnerup. Defending champion Cadel Evans of Australia, seen as Wiggins’ most formidable rival, was a disappointing sixth. He called Wiggins and Froome “very, very, very strong riders.” A day earlier, Evans was all too aware of the stakes in the time trial: “Tomorrow is the test of truth. It’s each with their own two legs,” he said. Evans was 1:43 behind. He remains second overall, trailing Wiggins by 1:53. Froome rose to third, from sixth, and is 2:07 behind his teammate. “I was really motivated — the time trial is my thing,” Wiggins said, adding he had worked hard on his riding position, breathing

and study of the course. “I am very happy now.” Overall, Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali is fourth, 2:23 behind. Russia’s Denis Menchov is fifth, 3:02 back, and Spain’s Haimar Zubeldia is sixth, 3:19 off the pace. Wiggins has been the favorite since a dazzling stretch of three stage-race victories this season. At the Tour, he was fourth in 2009 and 24th in 2010, just behind Lance Armstrong, riding in his final Tour. He crashed out last year. As this 99th Tour continues, Sky is likely to shelter Wiggins in the flats and escort him up Alps and Pyrenees climbs by pressing the pace with him in their draft, trying to wear out rivals. Then it will be up to Wiggins to deliver solo again in the next-tolast stage — an even longer, 33mile time trial from Bonneval to Chartres before an often-celebratory ride to the Champs-Elysees finish. Wiggins insists the three-week race is far from over, saying a crash or illness could douse his victory hopes. He also noted that Evans has promised to fight to the finish. “It’s never over until the fat lady sings, and she hasn’t entered the building yet,” Wiggins said. But the stage raises questions about whether Evans — or anyone else — can challenge Wiggins and his team, which has shown strength in both the climbs and time trials that often determine the Tour winner.

Armstrong suit to block doping charges dismissed

By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports Writer

AUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge handed Lance Armstrong a quick setback Monday as he went to court to save his seven Tour de France titles and his reputation as one of the greatest cyclists ever. Armstrong filed a lawsuit aimed at preventing the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency from moving ahead with charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs throughout much of his long career. But within hours, U.S. District Court Judge Sam Sparks in Austin dismissed the 80-page complaint. He said it seemed more intended to whip up public opinion in Armstrong’s favor than focus on legal arguments. Sparks, however, did not rule on the merits of Armstrong’s claims and will let him refile the lawsuit. Armstrong attorney Tim Herman said he will do that, possibly on Tuesday. The lawsuit claimed USADA rules violate athletes’ constitutional right to a fair trial, and that the agency doesn’t have jurisdiction in Armstrong’s case. It also accused USADA’s chief executive, Travis Tygart, of waging a personal vendetta against the cancer survivor who won the Tour de France every year from 1999 to 2005. The judge was not impressed with a filing that dedicated dozens of pages to Armstrong’s ca-

reer history and long-standing disputes with anti-doping officials. “This Court is not inclined to indulge ArmArmstrong strong’s desire for publicity, self-aggrandizement or vilification of Defendants, by sifting through eighty mostly unnecessary pages in search of the few kernels of factual material relevant to his claims,” Sparks wrote. Herman said he got the message. “When (Sparks) speaks, I listen,” he said. “It doesn’t change the legal issues involved or any of the relief that we seek.” The lawsuit was an aggressive, and expected, move as Armstrong seeks to preserve his racing legacy and his place as an advocate for cancer survivors and research. He wants Sparks to bar USADA from pursuing its case or issuing any sanctions against him. Armstrong asked the court to issue an injunction by Saturday, the deadline to formally challenge the case against him in USADA’s arbitration process or accept the agency’s sanctions. He could receive a lifetime ban from cycling and be stripped of his Tour de France victories if found guilty. Armstrong insists he is innocent.

Dickey deserves a better fate Nice to see retirement hasn’t dulled Tony La Russa’s competitive edge one bit. Fewer people than ever care who wins the All-Star game, even with homefield advantage in the World Series hanging in the balance, but he still does. And while La Russa knows absolutely no one tunes in to watch the managers manage, he still can’t help himself. Remember that when you see the Giants’ Matt Cain on the mound starting tonight for the National League instead of overwhelming fan favorite R.A. Dickey of the Mets. Here’s hoping that the game is half as competitive as La Russa envisions and there are still enough viewers hanging around by the middle — let alone at the end — to admire his handiwork. Dickey, a journeyman whose late-in-life mastery of the knuckleball has been the best and most unlikely story of the season so far, seemed like the perfect choice to start what is essentially an exhibition. He brought his mom, his wife and their four kids along. “Having gotten here as a 37-year-old man and having my family old enough to ‘get it’ has been a real rich thing,” Dickey said. “To play long enough for your kids to get it, that’s a real big deal.” La Russa knows all the details, but wasn’t about to be swayed by sentimentality. He said he decided on Cain, who’s no slouch, simply because he’s more likely to get through the

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — AJ Allmendinger is “shell-shocked” by his failed drug test and his business manager said Monday that the suspended NASCAR driver is working hard to determine what went wrong. Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR just before Saturday night’s race at Daytona for failing a random June 29 drug test. NASCAR on Monday received an official request for Allmendinger’s “B” sample to be tested. “He was a little dumbfounded and shell-shocked Saturday night, and yesterday, it just seemed a little surreal,” business manager Tara Ragan told The Associated Press. “It’s just so far from AJ’s character, and he’s trying to come to terms with what has just happened and figure out how this could happen and respect NASCAR’s process.” Penske Racing said it is working with NASCAR to “follow its process and procedures,” but the team will use Sam Hornish Jr. this weekend at New Hampshire in Allmendinger’s No. 22 Dodge. Ragan said Allmendinger is working with Penske Racing to help the organization “get to the bottom of this.” NASCAR and Penske officials have not said what Allmendinger tested positive for, and Allmendinger has made no statement since his suspension. Allmendinger is the second Sprint Cup Series driver suspended since NASCAR implemented its drug policy in 2009. Jeremy Mayfield chose not to participate in NASCAR’s rehabilitation program and instead contested his 2009 suspension in court. He eventually lost his fight after a lengthy battle, and has not raced since. Allmendinger is the fourth driver spanning NASCAR’s three national series to be suspended for a failed drug test; none of the previous three has been re-instated.

La Russa chooses Cain over Dickey to start on the mound tonight for the senior circuit. By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Owner of the best record in baseball, R.A. Dickey was hoping to become the first knuckleballer to start an All-Star game since Dutch Leonard in 1943. A 12-1 record wasn’t good enough. Tony La Russa picked San Francisco’s Matt Cain to start for the National League tonight. “I’m not going to break down in tears over it, but at the same time I’m a competitor. I want to pitch. I want to start,” Dickey said Monday. “I feel like I had a good enough first half that I should be considered. But I’m not the boss. I don’t necessarily have to agree with him, but I have to respect it. That’s just the way it is.” Detroit’s Justin Verlander will start for the American League as the All-Stars return to Kansas City for the first time since 1973. La Russa, who retired after leading the St. Louis Cardinals to last year’s World Series title, made the decision after consulting with his longtime pitching coach, Dave Duncan. Cain had the advantage of pitching a perfect game against Houston on June 13. Dickey hopes he wasn’t denied the start just because he throws knuckleballs. “You’re talking about the best players in the world, and you’re asking about a pitch that’s too nasty to handle?” Dickey said. “I hope that’s not it. If that’s the reason, that’s a poor reason.” Cain is 9-3 with a 2.62 ERA. Dickey, a first-time All-Star at age 37, became the first major leaguer in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters. Verlander, 9-5 with a 2.58 ERA, is the first All-Star starter who has won Rookie of the Year, Cy Young and MVP. The AL’s batting order has Derek Jeter leading off and playing shortstop, followed by Yankees teammate Robinson Cano at second base, Texas left fielder Josh Hamilton, Toronto right fielder Jose Bautista, Detroit first baseman Prince Fielder, Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre, Boston designated hitter David Ortiz, Texas catcher Mike Napoli and Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson. The NL has Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez leading off as the DH, followed by San Francisco center fielder Melky Cabrera, Milwaukee left fielder Ryan Braun, Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto, St. Louis right fielder Carlos Beltran, Giants catcher Buster Posey, Giants third baseman Pedro Sandoval, Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla and St. Louis shortstop Rafael Furcal. Braun, who finished fourth in NL outfielder voting, takes the place of the Dodgers’ Matt Kemp, on the disabled list because of a strained left hamstring.

‘I felt like I needed a change’ Jeremy Ruby returns to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre franchise as an executive. By TOM ROBINSON For the Times Leader

MOOSIC — Jeremy Ruby made a decision that many Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees fans have made. After 13 years, Ruby stepped away from the team. Ruby is back with the Yankees. The former Valley View baseball standout resigned from his position as Abington Heights athletic director to return as executive vice president of baseball operations. Changes on the horizon, including the debut of a reconstructed PNC Field in 2013, lured Ruby back, just as the Yankees are hoping will happen

with many of the fans who became disillusioned. “Ultimately, I felt like I needed a change,” said Ruby, whose rehiring was announced in a Monday press conference in the PNC Field parking lot. “I tried something new and I found that the grass is not always greener on the other side. I’m a baseball lifer and here we are. This project started and I got a little excited. “It’s going to be amazing. I’m sold. I’m all-in.” Ruby was drafted in the 38th round of the 1994 Major League Baseball Draft while he was still playing for Valley View in the playoffs. The son of veteran Houston Astros minor league pitching coach Gary Ruby and great-grandson of late Major League umpire Joe Paparella had a brief professional playing career before graduating from East Stroudsburg University in

1998. After joining the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Red Barons as an intern in 1998, Ruby stayed with the franchise. He became general manager in 2005 and became executive vice president/general manager when the team switched affiliations from the Philadelphia Phillies to the New York Yankees. Art Matin, the Mandalay Baseball Properties CEO who was serving as interim general manager, announced Ruby’s hiring along with that of Rob Crain as president and general manager. SWB Yankees is jointly owned by Mandalay Baseball, which had been operating the team, and the New York Yankees in another change since Ruby left the organization. “When he reached out most recently and said he was so excited about what he was hear-

ing, we started talking to Jeremy,” Matin said. “We started thinking ‘wouldn’t it be great if Jeremy wanted to come back’ and Jeremy was thinking ‘wouldn’t it be great if they wanted me to come back’. “Things have worked out. It was an easy decision to embrace the return of Jeremy.” Ruby will handle community relations and special events. He will also work on sales of clublevel and suite-level seats. “I had to do it,” Ruby said. “I just couldn’t pass up this opportunity. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance in a brand-new, $43-million facility, to be the best of the best.” Ruby said he enjoyed his work as athletic director, but feels a special attachment to baseball. “It’s just something that’s been in my family,” he said. “I can’t get away from it.”

that’s all that matters. We’re here to deliver the ultimate experience and that’s what we’re going to do.” NAME THE TEAM UPDATE During Monday’s press conference, Matin said that the organization received 2,700 suggestions from fans for the Name the Team Contest. He said that name ideas were broad. Some were heritage related – ranging from the mining industry, locomotive related or trolleys. Others were or baseball related names like Yankee offshoots or just other baseball names. And some names were animal or hunting related. The CEO of Mandalay Baseball Properties added that in about two weeks a list of finalists will be made public and he hopes to have everything finished by the early fall. “It’s a tremendous response. I want to thank everybody for sending suggestions,” Matin said. “They were thoughtful. sections of bleachers in rightcenter. Cano set a final-round record of 12 en route to last year’s title in Phoenix, where he hit 32 overall. This year he was the object of loud booing throughout by fans upset he didn’t select the Royals’ Billy Butler after promising to take a hometown player for his derby team. Fans chanted “Bil-ly Butler!” in between their boos. When it was over, Cano got hugs from Boston’s David Ortiz and Yankees teammates Curtis Granderson and CC Sabathia. “Everywhere the Yankees go play, they get booed all the time. I’m used to it,” Cano said. It was the 17th time a player went homerless in the Derby, the first since Detroit’s Bran-


What it showed was that people were passionate about the team and their ideas and there was a lot of good logic behind it.” TICKETS WILL BE INEXPENSIVE Matin also touched on the subject of affordability of tickets. In recent years, some people have had issues about the price of tickets to Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees games. In 2013, Matin said there’s a possibility that 90 percent of

tickets will be $10 or less when packaged or with group sales. A fixed rate of a $10-or-less ticket will be available as general admission, standing room or lawn seats. “We’ve heard loud and clear from everyone to please keep prices within reach,” Matin said. “And even though it’s going to be a phenomenal stadium with great amenities and something for everyone, we also realize that affordability is an

important aspect of this and we’re trying hard to keep ticket prices well within reach for everyone around this region and certainly consistent with other teams in the area.” Actual prices will be made public next month with existing season ticket holders getting the first opportunity. Matin is expecting that in September, season tickets, group tickets and club suite tickets will be made available to the general public.

said there’s no chance those words come out of my mouth.” Crain enters the organization taking over for Kristin Rose, who resigned in April and accepted another position with Mandalay Baseball Properties. His last job was as assistant general manager with the Omaha Storm Chasers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. The club also welcomed back Jeremy Ruby, who was selected as vice president of baseball operations. Ruby was employed with the team from 1999 to 2008 and was general manager in his last four seasons. “To have the New York Yankees, Mandalay Baseball Properties, both counties, the local communities, everybody supporting us, we’re going to go on an incredible run here,” Ruby said. When Crain was appointed as the assistant general manager with Omaha, the organization was in a similar situation as the SWB Yankees. The team was known as the Omaha Royals for eight years and moved into a new stadium in 2011 when historic Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium closed in 2010. As he begins his duty with the team in Moosic, Scranton/WilkesBarre will be moving into a renovated stadium to begin the 2013 campaign. The team is also mulling options to change its name from Yankees to a fans’ choice in a process that began last month. “I will use that experience. We’re not at the top of the mountain yet, but there’s opportunity to get there here in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre,” he said. “It’s going to be an exciting time.” He also played a big role with the fan base in Omaha and at his prior employer, the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays. The Storm Chasers’ attendance got a huge boost and sales records were set in advertising and group sales records for five straight years. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre franchise could use a boost in attendance. After attaining large crowds in the Yankees’ first year in 2007, attendance figures have declined every year and bottomed out as the worst in the International League in 2011. Crain, who has been married to his wife Amy since 2008, plans on letting fans know they are important and said that he wants them to create memories when they arrive at PNC Field. He also said many promotions will be in store for the 2013 season. “It’s every night creating something whether it’s kids run the bases or music in the plaza or giveaways or fireworks,” Crain said. “We’re going to overwhelm those senses of people so they’re going to have a great time when they’re here. It’s an entertainment destination. That’s what we’re really going to focus on.” One item already planned and to stay involved in the community is a community organization night. Each night a different non-profit organization will be recognized with atabledisplayandtheorganization will also be on the field and interviewed on the radio during the broadcast. Others being named to the leadership team are Paul Chilek, executive vice president; Doug Augis, vice president of ticketing; Katie Beekman, vice president of marketing and corporate services’ Curt Camoni, vice president of stadium operations; Mike Trudnak, vice president of corporate partnerships and Joe Villano, director of facility operations.

Carlos Gonzalez and Andrew McCutchen (four each) and Matt Kemp (one) also were dropped after the first round. Carlos Beltran (12) was dropped after the second round, when Mark Trumbo and Bautista were tied with 13 apiece, leading to a swingoff won by Bautista 2-1. Trumbo and Bautista each managed to put a drive into the small fountain beyond the leftfield wall.

Attorney says charge vs. Peterson a lie

MINNEAPOLIS — The attorney for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says his client was a victim and a charge of resisting arrest is a “fabrication.” Texas attorney Rusty Hardin released a statement Monday, two days after Peterson was released from a Houston jail. The running back was arrested and charged with resisting arrest after allegedly pushing an off-duty police officer who was working security at a night club. Hardin says the allegations are “a total fabrication” and that Peterson was “the victim, not the aggressor.” Peterson has an initial court appearance on the misdemeanor scheduled for Friday. Hardin represented Roger Clemens in his recent perjury case. Clemens was charged with lying to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs. He was retried this year and found not guilty on all counts. GOLF

Price withdraws from U.S. Senior Open

LAKE ORION, Mich. — Nick Price of Zimbabwe has withdrawn from the U.S. Senior Open because of a family emergency. The U.S. Senior Open starts Thursday at Indianwood. Price, who was named Presidents Cup captain last month, was to be in the same group as U.S. captain Fred Couples and eight-time major champion Tom Watson. His spot now goes to Douglas Snoap, an amateur from Apopka, Fla., who is playing in his first U.S. Senior Open. Bruce Fleisher, who won the 2001 U.S. Senior Open, withdrew because of a hand injury. D.A. Weibring withdrew because of an injury to his Achilles tendon.

Eric LeGrand gets endorsement deal

NEWARK, N.J. — Paralyzed Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand has a new job. The inspirational LeGrand was hired by Subway to appear in television commercials with New York Giants defensive lineman Justin Tuck to promote the world’s largest restaurant chain. The commercials were filmed two weeks ago and will air this fall. LeGrand, who was paralyzed making a tackle in a game against Army in 2010, has had a remarkable year. The New Jersey native was signed to an NFL contract by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his former Scarlet Knights coach, Greg Schiano, shortly after the NFL draft in April. The 21-year-old, who has vowed to walk again, also will receive the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYs this month. NBA

HOUSTON — Marcus Camby has agreed to rejoin the New York Knicks in a deal that sends three players and two secondround draft picks to the Houston Rockets, according to a person with direct knowledge of the move. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team has announced the trade. The Rockets, continuing to reshape their roster after missing the playoffs for the third straight season, will get guard Toney Douglas, centers Josh Harrelson and Jerome Jordan and second-round picks in 2014 and 2015. Camby, meanwhile, returns to New York, where he played from 1998-2002. Houston obtained Camby from Portland at the trading deadline. He averaged 7.1 points and 9.3 rebounds in 19 games for the Rockets, who traded starting center Samuel Dalembert before last month’s draft.

Tasty move for Campbell?


Consumers charge more

Americans put more on their credit cards in May than in any single month since November 2007. But overall credit card use is still well below where it was just before the Great Recession began. The Federal Reserve said Monday that consumer borrowing rose by $17.1 billion in May from April. The increase drove total borrowing to a seasonally adjusted $2.57 trillion. That’s just below the all-time high of $2.58 trillion reached in July 2008. Borrowing has increased steadily over the past two years, driven mostly by auto and student loans.


NEW YORK — Campbell Soup Co., the world’s biggest soup maker, is looking to court a new generation of consumers with baby carrots, premium juices and refrigerated salad dressings. The Camden, N.J.-based company said Monday that it will buy natural foods maker Bolthouse Farms in a $1.55 billion cash deal from private equity firm Madison Dearborn Partners LLC. Campbell says Bolthouse’s line of juices and carrots will help it feed Americans’ growing appetite for fresher foods. Campbell, which is best known for its canned soups, is looking to strengthen its presence in the refrigerated sections of supermarkets. Most of its products, which include Goldfish crackers, Pepperidge Farm baked goods and Prego pasta sauces, are now found in the center aisles, where shelf-stable items are sold. CEO Denise Morrison said the Bolthouse deal will help Campbell more aggressively court the generation known as Millennials, who are especially drawn to healthy, on-the-go foods. Campbell’s core customers are currently baby boomers and seniors who grew up with the company’s products, Morrison said. Campbell expects the $12 billion market for packaged fresh foods to grow about 6 percent to 7 percent per year, outpacing the broader packaged-food category. After years of declining soup sales, as competition grew and consumer tastes evolved, Campbell also is trying to revive its main business. To appeal to younger shoppers, it plans to roll out a slew of new products this fall, including soup pouches in flavors like Moroccan chicken.

Computers running on the next version of Microsoft’s Windows operating system will go on sale in October. Microsoft Corp. announced the time frame for Windows 8’s mass-market release Monday in Toronto. A specific sales date in October wasn’t provided. Most industry analysts expected Windows 8 would go on sale in the fall to ensure that the machines running on the operating system would be available for the holiday shopping season. Consumers and businesses who don’t want to buy new computers will be able to buy Windows 8 and upgrade their systems.

WellPoint said the acquisition gives it the opportunity for about $16 billion in potential revenue.

When you name a product “Incredible” you’re giving yourself a big set of shoes to fill. The original HTC Incredible phone featured an impressive 8 megapixel camera and a 1GHz processor, packed into a case that was slimmer and lighter than an iPhone. In almost every sense of the word, it lived up to its name. A few days ago, I got my hands on the newly released “Incredible 4G LTE” from Verizon Wireless. There’s a definite family resemblance to its older 3G sibling. But where the original device was all black, the Incredible 4G has been updated to match the latest HTC devices – it has a slightly polished bezel with understated crimson accents on the power button and camera bezel.

many, where youth unemployment is only 7.9 percent, thanks to a vocational education system. (European economic statistics count those 15 through 24 as youths.) In the United States, youth unemployment — which covers ages 16 through 24 — was 16.5 percent last month. Youth unemployment is almost always about twice as high as overall unemployment in Europe. Young workers are often the last hired, so they are the first to be fired.

lot tougher for me than for my mother’s generation.” Europe’s economic crisis is hitting young people like Fernandez the hardest. The youth unemployment rate is nearly 53 percent in Greece, 51.5 percent in Spain and 35 percent in Italy. In the 17 countries that use the euro currency, youth unemployment is a record 22 percent, twice the eurozone’s overall unemployment rate of 11 percent, which is itself the highest since the euro was created in 1999.

TECH TALK NICK DELORENZO The phone starts up fast. It’s got a dual core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 gig of ram – there are better, but it’s definitely good enough to qualify as a high-end device, and give the phone impressively snappy response. When browsing the Internet over Verizon’s 4G network, the phone was nearly as fast as a laptop with comparable specs. The 4-inch, 960x540 resolution display is strikingly beautiful. Combined with high pixel density (275 ppi) S-LCD technology delivers sharp imaging. The Incredible 4G runs Android 4.0, code named “Ice Cream Sandwich,” and every function and built-in app I tried was blazingly fast. Most 4G devices with big proc-

If you’re shopping for a top-ofthe-line phone now, my recommendations would be limited to the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the HTC Incredible 4G. The Samsung is pricier but has a slightly faster processor and a bigger display. HTC devices in my experience seem to be a bit more rugged. It’s a hard choice, but for me, the fact that the HTC is more portable and durable tilt the scales in favor of the Incredible 4G. The HTC Incredible 4G LTE costs $149.99 with a 2-year contract; full retail price is $499.99.

essors are murder on batteries, but it seems the Incredible 4G’s slightly relaxed 1.2Ghz processor speed has made a difference – the battery lasted as long as any 4G device I’ve tested so far. The phone comes preloaded with apps that make it usable right out of the box. The camera is the usual 8 megapixel model now found in most highend devices. It doesn’t have a highspeed mode but still takes very sharp photos and high-definition video. There’s also a front-facing camera for video calls. 10-YR T-NOTE 1.51%

So far this month, our average temperature is six degrees above normal. This follows both May and June being warmer than normal. Already this month, we've had six days above 90, and I suppose it's a good bet that more are on the way this summer. I can just imagine how unbearable the heat must have been back before the days of air conditioning. On this date back in 1936, it was 103 degrees, which topped off a searing weeklong heat wave. That was, and still is, the hottest temperature on record for our area. At least back then, they had electric fans, which by the way, were invented way back in 1886. - Tom Clark m

6 Professionals On Hand To Assist You!


Red, white and blue

Red white and blue are the colors of our flag. And they are also pigments that occur naturally in many fruits and vegetables. Besides being festive, these various hues convey protection to our bodies when we include them regularly in our diets. Here are some redeeming values of the red, white and blue: Red is derived from natural plant pigments “lycopene” (found in

tomatoes, watermelon, and pink grapefruit) and “anthocyanins” (strawberries, raspberries, red grapes). Lycopene is best known for its protective role against certain types of cancer such as prostate cancer. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that protect our cells from damage, according to registered dietitian Dr. Julie Garden-Robinson. Take strawberries. Better yet take a

cup of strawberries (about 8 whole berries). There in lies more vitamin C than an orange (140 percent of our daily requirementBuy bright red strawberries with fresh-looking green caps, say experts. And keep them intact until right before you plan to serve them. As soon as you remove the green cap, vitamin C begins to wane. White: Whoever said to avoid everything white forgot that white fruits and vegetables (bananas, cauliflower, garlic,

onions to name a few) are colored by health-promoting “anthoxanthins” — plant chemicals that have been shown to help lower cholesterol, blood pressure and protect against certain types of cancer. Blue is another color derived from natural plant pigments called “anthocyanins.” Blueberries, plums (and prunes) are examples of foods that contain these pigments. Due to their ability to protect cells from damage, these substances help

guard against a variety of agerelated infirmities including heart disease and certain types of cancer. A recent study found that older women who ate more strawberries and blueberries had slower rates of “cognitive decline” as they aged. In other words, the women who ate more berries delayed the loss of brain function associated with aging (ouch) by up to 2.5 years.

‘Carcinoma’ terminology worries patient


Karen Valentine, Kathy Berry and Alaina Hollock go through a series of stretching warm-up exercises at the beginning of class at Melt Hot Yoga in Edwardsville.

Hot yoga heals, may help troubles



aria Scopelliti hardly sleeps anymore but, for her, that’s no problem. • “The sleep I do get is better than it’s ever been, and I don’t have to sleep as long

to be as energized,” said the 27-year-old Wilkes-Barre resi-

dent, who gets an average of four to six hours per night. The reason for Scopelliti’s change in patterns can be attributed to hot yoga, a fitness craze taking hold locally with the coming of Melt Hot Yoga studio in Edwardsville and Steamtown Yoga in Scranton. Scopelliti recently completed a 30-day challenge at Melt, in which she attended class every day for 30 days and said she

feels like she’s in top physical condition. “There’s one posture you do that’s supposed to be equivalent to eight hours of sleep, and I believe that’s true.” Hot yoga comes in many forms, See YOGA, Page 3C

Bone-marrow donors fewer for black patients By ALEXIA ELEJALDE-RUIZ Chicago Tribune (MCT)

the registry has 10 million potential donors, only 7 percent are black. Black patients have a 66 percent chance of having a good and willing donor on the registry, compared with 72 percent for Latinos, 73 percent for Asians, 82 percent for American Indians and 93 percent for whites. To increase the pool of black donors, Be The Match has declared July AfricanAmerican Bone Marrow

Among the10,000 people in the U.S. who get leukemia, lymphoma or other lifethreatening blood-illness diagnoses each year, black people have the lowest chance of finding a donor for a bonemarrow transplant. “I call it the genetic powerball,” said Jennifer Baird, an account executive for donor recruitment at the National Marrow Donor Program’s Be The Match registry.

Q: I’m confused about the findings of a breast biopsy I had a couple of months ago. The biopsy report said I had LCIS (lobular carcinoma in situ). I was relieved that the breast surgeon I went to said it wasn’t cancer, but the diagnosis of “carcinoma” makes me pretty nervous. Doesn’t “carcinoma” mean cancer? A:Yes, it does. But the use of the word “carcinoma” in this breast condition is a misnomer. It’s really a pre-cancer condition, rather than a true cancer. “Lobular” means that abnormal cells were found in the lobules, which are the milk-producing glands at the end of breast ducts. As you know, it’s something found as an incidental finding on a breast biopsy for something unrelated to it. There’s no breast mass or lump directly associated with this pre-cancerous breast condition. Some doctors refer to LCIS as “lobular neoplasia” (an abnormal growth of cells) rather than “lobular carcinoma” (the presence of cancerous cells). LCIS does mean that you’re at higher risk of breast cancer in the future, so you will need to be closely watched with diagnostic mammograms. The good news is that you’re safe for now. Going forward, you will need to discuss treatment options with your breast surgeon or gynecologist. These options include frequent exams and mammography; anti-estrogen protection with a drug like Tamoxifen or Evista; and consideration of preventive mastectomy — particularly if there’s a strong family history of breast cancer. Q: For the last two months, I’ve been taking a green coffee bean extract recommended by Dr. Oz on his show. So far, I’ve lost 10 pounds without even trying! What’s your opinion of it? A: Generally, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. But this stuff may actually work! Excitement about the weight loss magic of green coffee bean extract began this year, after a “randomized, double-blind, placebocontrolled, linear dose, crossover University of Scranton study.” It was published in the January 2012 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity. This wasn’t just a bunch of anecdotal claims, but the results of a 22-week study involving 16 participants who showed an average weight loss of 17 pounds. The key to the effectiveness of green coffee bean extract is not believed to be the effect of caffeine; rather, the compound “chlorogenic acid” and its metabolite “caffeic acid.” Chlorogenic acid helps to keep the body from absorbing sugar from the digestive tract, and it also stimulates the burning of fat by the liver.

The only one speaking will be the instructor, who leads the class through each posture. • It’s a no-pressure form of exercise. If you feel the need to sit down or leave the room at any point you’re more than welcome to, no judgment involved. • Besides a good attitude and plenty of water, all most yoga places ask you to bring is a yoga mat and a towel to cover it. Many places will have each available to rent.

Ask anyone who practices hot yoga for advice for beginners, and almost all of them say the same thing: it’s for everyone, no matter the physical condition, so just relax and give it a try. While it’s a nice notion, it still leaves many wondering just what goes on in what Maria Scopelliti refers to as the “hot box.” Here’s a clearer picture of what you can expect in your first 90 minutes: • You’ll sweat like crazy, so water is important, especially when first starting out. You may come to find, as Lori Dexter did, that you don’t need as much water as others, but it never hurts to have hydration

“Otherwise, yoga can be better than physical therapy from this standpoint,” Mahler said. “It’s something someone can add to their lifestyle for years to come, instead of doing it over a period of a couple months or a year. If you have chronic back issues you need to do core strengthening, stretching and flexibility exercises basically the rest of your life.” Hot-yoga supporters also tout its mental benefits, which come from its focus on breathing. “You have a heightened sense of awareness of your breath and what it can do for your body,” Scopelliti said. “In the stressful world we live in, people forget to just breathe and, through this, you learn how to get through things by doing so.” “It really is a union of mind, body and spirit,” Dexter said. “I’m more aware of every moment in my life, and I’m capable Pada-Hasthasana, or hands to of enjoying each.”


ter, on the whole, it can adapt around the injury, and symptomatology goes away. It’s not that you want to just treat the symptoms, but sometimes getting someone out of pain is something you need to do, as well as keeping them out of pain so further healing can occur.” Mahler said the heat in the room further helps muscles become more flexible. The only thing he warned against in terms of hot yoga is to take care if the injury is acute or newer, as the heat may cause inflammation. He, as well as Dexter, said it’s best to talk to a doctor first to define a best course of action.


The Standing Bow pose, demonstrated by Kathy Berry, is one of many that focus on balance.


but the type available here is based on Bikram yoga, a system popularized in the 1970s by Bikram Choudhury. Classes run exactly 90 minutes in a room heated to 105 degrees and consist of a set series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, all of which are done twice. The practice has been widely debated, with some saying the extreme heat and fact that the movements don’t vary from class to class may not exactly be good for the body. Many locals, though, believe hot yoga works and, for some, better than they ever thought it could. Lori Dexter, 46, of WilkesBarre, is an instructor at Melt who began the practice four years ago as a way to help her body after years of physical strain as a gymnast. “I was in tears leaving the first class saying to myself, ‘Oh my God, this is what I’ve needed,’ ” she said. Dexter couldn’t reach the heel of her foot to her backside for a long time because of her torn knee, but as the yoga classes went on she found the movement became increasingly easier, and that, overall, she stopped waking up with her typical aches and pains. Dr. Paul Mahler of Mahler Family Chiropractic Center in Forty Fort recommends yoga to many of his patients. “The initial benefits of yoga are core strengthening and flexibility, both of which help to maintain posture and muscle tone so the body can better adapt to whatever issues a patient has,” he said. “The reality with some chronic conditions is that they can’t necessarily be brought back to normal, but if the body can adapt bet-
