W-B City Council to review towing WILKES-BARRE – Council Thursday night refused to support a call to terminate the contract with LAG Towing Inc. based on a growing number of complaints and instead recommended the city administration act quickly to set up a panel to review it. The compromise came early on during a raucous 75-minute meeting at City Hall covering topics ranging from the unaccounted 18,000 gallons of fuel from the city’s pumps at the public works garage to suggestions from a New Hampshire middle school teacher on how Mayor Tom Leighton should deal with constituents. Councilman Tony George called for getting rid of the contractor, alleging its owner Leo Glodzik was engaged in “price gouging” and failed to respond to the city’s request to receipts. Without the paperwork, George said he could not determine whether LAG overcharged for its services. “I make a motion to request that the mayor start proceedings to terminate his contract,” said George.

Penn State trustees react to Freeh report By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Accepting full responsibility for the “failures that occurred,” Penn State University’s Board of Trustees and its president answered tough questions during a 30-minute press conference Thursday. The gathering, which drew more than 50 members of the local, state and national media, came less than seven hours after the long-awaited and ultimately scathing 267-page report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh was released. Freeh, hired by the university’s trustees to investi-

Penn State University President Rodney Erickson told the press conference inside the Erickson Hilton Hotel and Conference Center that the college “will emerge from this a better and stronger institution.” But he added that the report, which has cost the school $6.5 million to date, tells a tale that has See TRUSTEES, Page 6A

W-B area unveils new hiring policy If policy is adopted, it would be the first time the district has the process in writing. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Thursday marked 947days since WilkesBarre Area School Board member Maryanne Toole made a motion that a teacher-hiring policy be drawn up and approved. Thursday also marked the first public unveiling of a proposed policy that could be voted on next month. If the board adopts the policy, it would be the first time in years – possibly decades – that the district has the process down in writing. Toole, now board president, made her motion on Dec. 9, 2009 in the wake of federal charges against board members involving bribes for jobs. When the charges were levied, Superintendent Jeff Namey said the district has a unwritten proceSee POLICY, Page 12A

contraband inside the vehicle. During a strip search in police headquarters early Thursday Babbitt morning, police said Babbitt tried to swallow a bag of cocaine he had concealed in a body cavity. During a struggle a police officer pumped Babbitt’s’ stomach in an attempt to force Babbitt to spit out the bag. Babbitt allegedly ripped open the bag, causing cocaine to spew out and exposing two officers in their mouths and on their faces. The officers were transported to Hazleton General Hospital

where they were decontaminated for exposure to cocaine. Police allege they found a second bag containing 21 pill tablets and eight heroin packets in Babbitt’s rectum. Babbitt was arraigned by District Judge Diana Malast in Plains Township on two counts each of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, simple assault and reckless endangerment, and one count each of resisting arrest and tampering with evidence.

Senior Judge Joseph Augello granted Fann’s request for a continuance through his attorney, Mark Singer. Singer said in court papers that Fann has given him new information regarding the charges, and that he needs more time to conduct interviews.

HARRISBURG – No player matched all five winning numbers drawn in Thursday’s “Pennsylvania Cash 5” game so the jackpot will be worth $325,000. Lottery officials said 67 players matched four numbers and won $254.50 each; 2,586 players matched three numbers and won $11 each; and 31,091 players matched two numbers and won $1 each. Monday’s “Pennsylvania Match 6 Lotto” jackpot will be worth at least $2.2 million because no player holds a ticket with one row that matches all six winning numbers drawn in Thursday’s game.

Mayor Dorothy Petrosky, who has lived in Plymouth for all of her 72 years, said the borough is a different town than when she grew up. “Back when I was young and we walked home from a dance at night, you had no fears,” Petrosky said. “Today, you hardly see any adults out at night. It’s completely different today. You didn’t lock your doors back then. Now the doors are locked all the time. “It’s sad,” the mayor added. “I don’t like the way our town has changed. We

A citizen has filed an ethics complaint against Luzerne County Council Chairman Jim Bobeck, arguing he should have abstained from voting on the county’s 2012 amended budget because his father oversees a nonprofit that receives county funding. The issue has been raised before by Hazleton resident Kathy Dobash, though the complaint was filed by another county resident who asked not to be identified. The complaint maintains an abstention was warranted because the budget par- Bobeck tially funds county human service division contracts with Step By Step Inc. Bobeck’s father, James, is president and chief executive officer of the organization, which provides community support services to people with mental illnesses and intellectual disabilities. The complaint cites a section of the new ethics code that says no covered person “shall attempt to influence the course of proposed County Council legislation in which he or she, or a family member or business associate, has a present or potential conflict of interest or private interest, direct or indirect.” The $122.6 million amended budget supported by six of the 11 council members on Feb. 14 allocated $1.2 million toward mental health – the same amount in the original budget approved by prior commissioners. Bobeck has publicly said he was permitted to vote on the budget because it contained a bulk allotment for mental health that didn’t require council members to decide which providers were funded. The contract with Step By Step was already locked in by the prior administration for the 2011-12 fiscal year, he has said. Step By Step was paid $2.3 million last year and $1.1 million this year to date, county records show. The county allocation is a required local match to obtain state and federal funding for the Mental Health and Developmental Services office covering Luzerne and Wyoming counties, which has an overall budget of $22.1 million this year. A county match is required for some of the contracts with Step By Step. Council members are soon expected to vote on contracts with dozens of human service providers, including Step By Step, for the 2012-13 fiscal year. Bobeck said he would abstain from any votes for contracts or agreements with Step By Step. He said he hadn’t received the complaint, which will be ruled on by the county’s Accountability, Conduct and Ethics Commission. Bobeck said he will “respect the confidentiality of the process, which the complainants have failed to honor them-

Lee hearing continues

A hearing on whether the case of a 19-year-old charged in the shooting death of his great-grandfather should be held in juvenile court will continue next week. Attorneys this week presented dozens of witnesses to testify either for the case of Cody Lee to be transferred to juvenile Lee court or remain in adult court. Lee was 16 when he was charged with the December 2009 shooting death of 80-year-old Herbert Lee. Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr. said the hearing will resume Monday afternoon. Sklarosky was unavailable to hear testimony today due to scheduling conflicts. Prosecutors Thursday called several Lee family members who said they would like the case to remain in adult court because Lee committed a very adult crime. Also called to testify was a psychologist who evaluated Lee, and did not believe Lee was suffering from any mental health issue before the alleged shooting. SCRANTON

Lisa, a Scranton Prep student, was remembered at Holy Rosary Church as a girl who found good in everybody and died a violent death, snuffing out a future filled with potential.

Report: Crime rose 36 percent in Plymouth State records show number of minor offenses jumped 34 percent. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

PLYMOUTH – Violent crime in the borough jumped 36 percent, and the number of minor offenses rose 34 percent from 2010 to 2011, according to state records. Statistics appearing on the state police Uniform Crime Report, which is accessible on the Internet, are the latest available for Plymouth, which had a 2010 Census population of 5,951 residents.

Criminal offenses from January through July this year were not available. Residents voiced their concerns about the borough’s decline to council this week in the wake of a triple homicide on First Street on Saturday. Some urged council to hire more police, even if it means increasing taxes. Investigators allege Sawud Davis, 16, and his half brother, Shawn Hamilton, 18, are responsible for the shooting deaths of Lisa Abaunza, 15, of Duryea, Bradley Swartwood, 21, and Nicholas Maldonado, 17, during a drug exchange of heroin and marijuana.

Hidden gold: State has county’s unclaimed cash More than $24,000 is due Luzerne County dating back to 1989, and it’s on the way.

By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

During a brainstorming session earlier this year about boosting revenue, Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton asked Controller Walter Griffith if the county was entitled to unclaimed property held by the Pennsylvania Treasury. Griffith initiated a search April 12 and found 109 credits, refunds

and payments due to the county, ranging from $2 to $12,130.47. It added up to a grand total of $24,572.63. “When they said the amount, we were elated,” Griffith said. State Treasurer Rob McCord is scheduled to visit the county Aug. 10 to deliver the check. “Any money that we can gain will help, and this money belongs to the county,” Griffith said. County Council Chairman Jim Bobeck said the revenue is a positive for the new home rule government administration. “The unclaimed funds have

existed for quite some time, but it took new executive management to realize it,” Bobeck said. He said many county residents also are entitled to funds and urged them to aggressively pursue them, starting with a search on the unclaimed property link at http://www.patreasu-

ry.gov. Some of the checks ended up in the state treasury because of incorrect or incomplete addresses, he said. Most of the uncashed checks dated back to 2003, 2004 and 2005 and were owed to multiple offices. The $12,130 check had been issued to the county commissioners from the state budget office in August 2004. Records show the check was sent to the county recreational complex in Forty Fort, and it’s unclear why it never made it to the commissioners’ office at the courthouse in Wilkes-

Barre. The oldest check, from 1989 for $41, was owed to the county domestic relations office from Northampton County, records show. Griffith said the state treasury receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property annually from businesses, financial institutions and organizations. “It’s a common misconception that only individuals have unclaimed property,” Griffith said, noting municipalities, schools, fire departments and businesses are on the list of those entitled to money.

Documents conflict on Romney leaving Bain

Nine are dead in avalanche

President Barack Obama’s campaign seized on the discrepancies to charge GOP contender was lying.

A dozen climbers were injured and two missing in the French Alps. By JOHN HEILPRIN and ANGELA CHARLTON Associated Press

CHAMONIX, France — A climber trying to scale Mont Blanc may accidentally have caused a slab of ice to snap off Thursday high in the French Alps, sparking an avalanche that swept nine European climbers to their deaths, authorities said. A dozen climbers were injured and two were still missing by nightfall. As a sheet of snow and ice thundered down the steep slope, several other climbers managed to turn away from the slide in time, regional authorities in Haute-Savoie said. Two climbers were rescued as emergency crews using dogs and helicopters scoured the churned-up, high-altitude area in a frantic search for the missing. Their quest, hampered by the possibility of further avalanches, was called off by nighttime. Three Britons, three Germans, two Spaniards and one Swiss climber were known to have died, the prefecture of the Haute-Savoie region said. Officials noted the numbers of those involved in the drama may vary because some climbers may have struck out on their own. A group of 28 were known to have left a mountain refuge for the ascent. Close to 90 people were involved in the search. Among the dozen injured was an American, the only known non-European. A seriously injured Swiss citizen was transported to a Swiss hospital.

By JACK GILLUM and JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Documents filed by Mitt Romney’s former company conflict with the Republican presidential candidate’s statements about when he gave up control of the private equity firm Bain Capital. President Barack Obama’s campaign seized on the discrepancies Thursday to charge that Romney was lying about his background. Romney, in turn, said Obama was the one being dishonest, rolling out a hard-hitting television ad that accused the president of launching “misleading, unfair and untrue” attacks about the Republican’s role in outsourcing U.S. jobs. “When a president doesn’t tell the truth, how can we trust him to lead?” the narrator says in the Romney ad titled “No Evidence.”

Obama has accused Romney of being an “outsourcing pioneer” who invested in companies that shipped jobs to China, India and elsewhere overseas. But Romney, who has made his business experience the central part of his candidacy, claims he had no role in outsourcing U.S. jobs because much of that activity didn’t happen until after 1999, when he says he had given up operational control at Bain. Both candidates dug in on their positions, dispatching aides to level deeply personal criticisms aimed at casting each opponent as little more than a typical politician. Each candidate is seeking to sully his rival’s integrity in hopes of gaining ground in closely contested campaign four months before Election Day. But the strategy carries risks: It could alienate voters — especially critical independents — who are turned off by negative campaigning and want to see the candidates focus on the economy and job growth. At issue is when Romney left Bain, and whether he was at the helm when it sent jobs overseas.

The documents, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, place Romney in charge of Bain from 1999 to 2001, a period in which the company outsourced jobs and ran companies that fell into bankruptcy. Romney has tried to distance himself from this period in Bain’s history, saying on financial disclosure forms he had no active role in Bain as of February 1999. Obama has labeled Romney a job killer in hopes of undercutting the Republican’s

claim that his private business experience gives him the ability to turn around the struggling economy. But at least three times since then, Bain listed Romney as the company’s “controlling person,” as well as its “sole shareholder, sole director, chief executive officer and president.” And one of those documents — as late as February 2001 — lists Romney’s “principal occupation” as Bain’s managing director.

DEP overseeing acid cleanup at Chief Oil & Gas drilling site By KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Environmental officials are overseeing the cleanup of a 4,700 gallon hydrochloric acid spill at a Chief Oil & Gas drilling site in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Department of Environmental Protection said some of the July 4 spill flowed through a field and reached a small tributary of Towanda Creek, according to spokesman Daniel Spadoni. The site is about 80 miles northeast of Scranton. Most of the unnamed tributary was dry, but a few minnows were killed. No acid reached Towanda Creek, Spadoni said. Dams were constructed in the tributary and were left there as a precautionary measure, and are still in place. Kristi Gittins, a spokeswoman for Dallas-based Chief, said only a very small portion of the spill ev-

er left the containment area of the well pad. She said Chief will continue to see what, if any, additional cleanup is needed. At the time of the spill, the crew had completed the hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, of the well, and were preparing to leave. Chief reported the spill immediately to DEP and worked to clean it up, Gittins said. DEP said the cause appeared to be a valve failure on a tractor trailer tank holding the acid, but the investigation is continuing. Two members of DEP’s Emergency Response Team were dispatched to the site and the local fire company was also present. DEP is continuing to monitor the area for impacts, and excavation of contaminated soil should be finished this week. They planned to sample nearby drinking water wells Tuesday.

EXCERPTS FROM THE REPORT The Associated Press

Key excerpts from the investigation into the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal led by former federal judge and ex-FBI director Louis Freeh:

“The most saddening finding by the Spe-

“repeatedly concealed critical facts” about Sandusky’s abuse from authorities and others “in order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity... .”

“Despite their knowledge of the

criminal investigation of Sandusky, Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley took no action to limit Sandusky’s access to Penn State facilities or took any measures to protect children on their campuses.”

“Before May 1998, several staff members and football coaches regularly observed Sandusky showering with young boys in the Lasch Building (now the East Area Locker Building or ‘Old Lasch’). None of the individuals interviewed notified their superiors of this behavior.”

“The special investigative counsel

found no evidence to indicate that Sandusky’s retirement was related to the police investigation of him in 1998.”

Handwritten note,

apparently from Paterno to Sandusky: “If there were no (Second) Mile, then I believe you ... probably could be the next Penn State FB coach. But you wanted the best of two worlds and I probably should have sat down with you six or seven years and said look Jerry, if you want to be head coach at Penn State, give up your association with the (Second) Mile and concentrate on nothing but your family and Penn State. ... You are too deeply involved in both.”

“Neither Spanier

nor the University’s General Counsel, Cynthia Baldwin, briefed the Board of Trustees about the Grand Jury investigation of Sandusky or the potential risk to the University until the Board’s meeting on May 11, 2011 and, then, only at the request of a Trustee who read the March 31, 2011 article” published by The Patriot-News of Harrisburg.

Report aids victims’ legal cases, lawyers say The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Lawyers for the victims of sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky say a report commissioned by Penn State will strengthen the civil suits they expect to file against the university, administrators

and possibly the estate of former football coach Joe Paterno. Matthew Casey is representing three of the victims identified in the criminal case when Sandusky was convicted. He says a report issued Thurs-

day by former FBI Director Louis Freeh shows university officials knew about allegations of misconduct by Sandusky in 1998. Tom Kline, who represents a victim, says the report shows that the university was “an

enabler” of abuse. Casey says civil suits are being prepared but might not be filed immediately. He says they could be put on hold as criminal cases against two Penn State administrators are resolved.

STATE COLLEGE — A mural artist said he is not removing Joe Paterno from a mural near the Penn State campus. Michael Pilato said Thursday that he has no immediate plans to take the late Penn State coach or former university president Graham Spanier out

of the huge downtown “Inspiration” mural. Pilato said Paterno is part of Penn State history. Former FBI director Louis Freeh alleges that Paterno, Spanier and two other top Penn State officials buried sex-abuse claims against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky in order to protect

the school and the football program. Sandusky was convicted last month of 45 counts for sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years Pilato has already removed him and replaced him with a Penn State grad who is an advocate for abuse victims and issues.

Today’s release of the Freeh Report will not hinder the continuing work of our statewide investigating grand jury, nor will it impact ongoing criminal prosecutions.” — Linda Kelly, Pennsylvania Attorney General

The Associated Press

“The idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover up for a child predator is impossible to accept. The far more realistic conclusion is that many people didn’t fully understand what was happening and underestimated or misinterpreted events. Sandusky was a great deceiver. He fooled everyone — law enforcement, his family, coaches, players, neighbors, university officials, and everyone at Second Mile.” — Paterno family statement. “To my understanding ... when all is said and done, Joe never said (to Curley), ‘Don’t investigate.’ There was no intent to conceal (anything) by Joe ... It was reported to people he was supposed to.” AP PHOTO — Scott Paterno, the late coach’s son.

The fact that this is such a complete indictment of the university leadership is opening people’s eyes to the potential liability that schools face if they don’t address this correctly. ...

All of his victories, he’ll be remembered by everyone in town for a long time, but there will be that hesitation.” — Christian Beveridge, a masonry worker who grew up near Penn State on Paterno’s legacy.

“The knowledge of Paterno in 1998 — the fact that Sandusky was known to be a grave risk to children for 14 years and nothing was done to stop him — that is a crying shame. And it’s something that will be a stain on Penn State for a long time to come.” — Tom Kline, lawyer for a boy known as Victim 5 who was assaulted by Sandusky in a football team shower in 2001. “Despite being children within easy reach of many supposedly great local figures, (the victims) were offered no outstretched hand. They were left to save themselves. This campus is plagued by desperate, insistent shrieks of ‘We are Penn State.’ It’s time for Penn State to realize that adhering to this mantra is distancing and selfdefeating. It is time to follow a path of humility, not one of

hubris.” — Matt Bodenschatz, a Penn State student and spokesman for Voices for Victims.

“To have a rotating group of 32 people, over more than a decade, act like that’s OK, I think that’s an enormous problem. To not have one person say it’s not OK for us to rubber stamp what he was telling us? There was an ultimate gatekeeper that didn’t really report to anybody, and had no oversight.” — Maribeth Roman Schmidt, spokeswoman for Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, an alumni group calling for the entire board of trustees to resign.

COURT CASE

Sandusky’s attorney challenges judge’s order The Associated Press

BELLEFONTE — One of Jerry Sandusky’s attorneys on Thursday challenged the trial judge’s order designed to figure out if lawyers have been leaking information about his case. Defense attorney Karl Rominger appealed Judge John Cleland’s June 26 order that told Sandusky’s lawyers to give him a sworn statement listing all material they obtained from prosecutors and then gave to anyone else. Cleland did not say what prompted the order, but it was issued the same day

NBC reported it had obtained an audiotape of Sandusky’s son Matt saying he had been molested by his father. Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted last month of 45 counts for abusing 10 boys. Rominger argued that Cleland’s order would violate the protections afforded to attorneys’ work products. “Identifying who was consulted and/ or with what materials breaches this carefully crafted wall, as an astute observer can determine the attorney’s thought processes and case strategy,”

Rominger wrote. Cleland said he was acting to ensure the integrity of ongoing criminal investigations and to protect the privacy of victims and grand jury witnesses. He also ordered no material given by prosecutors to defense attorneys could be disclosed to anyone outside the defense team. Cleland’s order did not pertain to the attorney general’s office, saying that would be up to the judge that supervises the investigative grand jury. Rominger said that made the order one-sided.

TARNISHED REPUTATION

Child unit kills name of Paterno The Associated Press

BEAVERTON, Ore. — The president of Nike Inc. said Thursday he has decided to change the name of the Joe Paterno Child Development Center, a child care facility at the company’s headquarters outside Portland. Chief executive Mark Parker said he was deeply sadParker dened by the news coming of the Louis Freeh investigation on the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State. Freeh says Paterno and other top school officials disregarded the welfare of Jerry Sandusky’s victims as they failed to report abuse allegations against the longtime assistant coach. “It is a terrible tragedy that children were unprotected from such abhorrent crimes,” Parker said. Nike founder Phil Knight, who defended Paterno at the coach’s memorial service, said “it appears Joe made missteps that led to heartbreaking consequences. I missed that Joe missed it, and I am extremely saddened on this day.” Knight said Paterno strived to put young athletes in a position to succeed in sports and in life. “My love for Joe and his family remains,” Knight said.

SECURITY ISSUES ON CAMPUS

Freeh sees university safer now The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Penn State has undertaken significant changes to focus on campus safety in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal and parents should have no concerns about sending their children there, special investigator Louis Freeh said Thursday. Parents should consider Penn State safe, just as they would any other “good university,” Freeh said, noting he’s a father himself. In the wake of the Sandusky scandal, Freeh said the university is “for the first time” taking seriously the Clery Act, which mandates reporting of campus crime. The U.S. Department of Education is still investigating whether Penn State had violated reporting rules. On the eve of the report’s release, Penn State approved a new policy limiting access to athletic facilities to players and department personnel only during business hours. The new policy also limits recreational facilities to use by someone with a valid university identification card.

Despite scandal, more students choosing PSU Data from the university system and local sources indicate reputation intact. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

The ongoing Penn State University sex abuse scandal has not adversely affected admission applications, and Penn State incoming freshmen, alumni and high school guidance counselors think the university’s reputation is intact. Oren Adam, a 2012 Wyoming Seminary graduate who started attending summer classes, said it’s been tough to avoid the daily negative news about his university. “It’s all over the news, you can’t get away from it,” said the 18year-old economics major from

Plucenik

Bear Creek. But the negative publicity about some past administrators and football coaches was not enough to stop him from accepting the offer of admission. “On the whole, it’s a great school,” Adam said. “The actions of a few should not reflect on the whole school.” He said it did not play a role in his decision to apply and he doesn’t believe it has or will play a role in other high school students’ decisions. Data back that up.

Applications on rise According to Anne L. Rohrbach, executive director for undergraduate admissions at Penn State, year-to-date total applications as of Monday were 118,071, compared to 117,300 at the same time last year. “We have not seen any correlation between interest in admission to Penn State and the issues surrounding the investigation. Undergraduate applications have increased over 2 percent for 2012 (76,933 for 2012 compared to 75,178 for 2011 as of the first week in July),” Rohrbach said. “Over 16,000 new first-year students have accepted offers of admission for summer and fall 2012 to 20 undergraduate campuses.” She said Penn State delivers high-quality academic programs and is a top choice for many stu-

dents in Pennsylvania, in the U.S. and around the world. Denny Barber, a guidance counselor at Wyoming Seminary, said the scandal has “not affected it (interest) at all.” “The proof,” she said, “is in the numbers.” Of the 106 graduates of Seminary in June, 23 applied to Penn State, 22 were admitted and six accepted the offer to enroll. “That six,” Barber said, “is the highest enrollment number we’ve had since 2004.” The Class of 2011 saw 18 apply, nine get accepted and only two enroll. At Dallas School District, Superintendent Frank Galicki said 17 graduates from last month’s class will attend Penn State. That is average or slightly higher than normal, he said, which tells him the controversy has not negatively impacted the school’s appeal

During the session she was asked if she and other board members would resign in light of the report’s findings that the board perhaps did not do enough to uncover the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse cases and coverup.

“You have to measure every human by the good they’ve done, and the bad they’ve done,” Frazier said. “We have to take some time, we have to take some reflection and distance before we start thinking about how we think about Joe Paterno’s entire life and entire body of work.” Erickson was also cautious about casting aspersions about the football program as a whole. “I think that we should be careful that we don’t paint the entire football program over a long period of time with a single brush,” said Erickson, who replaced Spanier in November.

coach did not know of any other allegations. The report said Paterno and the administrators did not alert the trustees or take more action against Sandusky. “None of them even spoke to Sandusky about his conduct. In short, nothing was done and Sandusky was allowed to continue with impunity,” Freeh wrote in the report. Paterno died in January of lung cancer and never spoke with the Freeh group, though Freeh said Thursday that he believed it was Paterno’s intention to do so. At the time of his grand jury testimony, Paterno was 84 and recovering from illness. “The fact that he didn’t remember something doesn’t entirely shock me,” Scott Paterno said. “I don’t know what he was told until

I hear (it) from Tim Curley,” he said. He added, “Some of the conclusions are based on less than thick evidence. The idea that he was closely following the 1998 (report) is drawn based” on two emails. The 1998 encounter was investigated by police but ultimately resulted in no charges at the time. When asked how the findings might affect his father’s legacy, Scott Paterno said it would be addressed as part of the family response. “This will be just the beginning of the discussion of what happened,” he said. “But in the end, (the report) supported what we said from the beginning — that Joe never did anything to interfere with an investigation and fulfilled his legal obligation.”

of that talk but said it is “the only known, intervening factor” between an agreement that the allegation should be reported to child welfare officials and the change of course. “To my understanding ... when all is said and done, Joe never said, ‘Don’t investigate,”’ to Curley, Scott Paterno told the AP. “There was no intent to conceal (anything) by Joe ... It was reported to people he was supposed to.” The Freeh report also found Paterno was aware of a 1998 abuse report involving Sandusky and asked Curley follow-up questions about it. Paterno told a grand jury in January 2011he did not know of any allegations prior to 2001, though he may have been involved in a discussion about “a rumor.” Paterno’s family had also said the

Louis Freeh, hired by university trustees weeks after Sandusky was arrested in November to look into Penn State and what its employees did or did not do to protect children. “In order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, the most powerful leaders at the university … repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse,” the report said. The report also found that sexual abuse might have been prevented if university officials had banned Sandusky from bringing children onto campus after a 1998 inquiry. Officials later did bar him from bringing children to campus. Fischbein agreed that banning Sandusky from bringing children on campus could have prevented at least some abuse, but he noted that “sexual predators will find other locations” if access to one is closed. Psychologist Robert Griffin of Forty Fort said for Penn State fans and alumni, the report is “a shocking thing. … It will continue to be a tough thing for fans who associate their identity with Penn State. It causes a loss of positive identity.” For many people, including the sex abuse victims, Griffin said, the report findings, especially about Paterno, “creates a cynicism, which is a type of damage, about who to trust.” To many, Paterno was a “father figure,” and some people can feel a sense of “betrayal. Trusting authority in a father figure took a hit.” “For the (football) team, it’s really incomprehensible how they’ll react to it,” Griffin said.

Conclusions reached in an investigation into child sex abuse at Penn State and released Thursday in a report could have positive or negative effects on the abuse victims, a local psychiatrist said. “It could help them or it could hurt them. Each person processes things differently,” said Dr. Richard Fischbein, a forensic psychiatrist from Kingston who treats sexual offenders and victims. If the late legendary football coach Joe Paterno and top officials at the university did indeed conceal critical facts about former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s child abuse because they were worried about bad publicity, as stated in a report based on an internal investigation, that could leave abuse victims feeling angry, Fischbein said. “They could be feeling, ‘If the powers that be did what they were supposed to do, I wouldn’t be a victim,” Fischbein said. But depending on factors such as the age of the victims, their chemical makeup, the level of therapy they received, if any, and whether or not they received sufficient support to move on, the conclusions of the report could have a positive effect. “Other people may get relief from it, thinking those people are being punished,” Fischbein said.

Giants Despair Hill Climb is event that has something for entire family

Get ready for some daring driving I F YO U G O

By JOHN P. ANISTRANSKI Times Leader Intern

LAUREL RUN – The 106th Giants Despair Hill Climb, the annual drag race on the wooded and hilly East Northampton Street, promises a rare experience of daring driving for even the most cautious Wilkes-Barre area resident. Although the one-mile course remains the same, the weeds and thorny bushes that formerly flanked the jagged course have been cleared, allowing spectators a quarter-mile stretch of standing room at the starting line between Shannon Street and Dickerson Street on Saturday and Sunday. Darryl Danko, a Sports Car Club of America race coordinator and participant who holds the course’s record, hopes the nowcleared spectator area will attract families. “The event is totally free, and we hope that families will be drawn out to enjoy it,” said Danko. “This year, you’ll be able to safely see the entire first straightaway,” he added. Danko was referring to the stretch of road near Laurel Run’s Dickerson Street, from which the 80 registered racers will depart one by one. The smoothly paved course stretches up to the socalled “Devil’s Elbow,” a sudden 110-degree bend located a halfmile from the starting line. Viewers will find bleachers and standing room near the starting line, but those looking for a unique kick should stroll up to

“Don’t be sad about the little girl lying here – that’s not Lisa,” her uncle said. “Lisa hungered to make friends and be accepted. There are good and bad people in the world. Lisa found good in all – she was non-judgmental and she didn’t want to be judged.” He said there will be many trials and headlines coming. “Her only real fault was her need to make as many friends as she could,” he said. Santoro said she and Lisa were “sisters.” She said she has memories from the time they were 6 years old. Santoro met Lisa in Virginia, and then her family moved to Pittston after the Abaunzas moved to Duryea. McDonnell said everyone in the church wishes that Jesus could walk through the doors of Holy Rosary Church, touch the casket and give Lisa back to her mother, Barbara. “But Lisa now has the gift of

Area man gets 10-20 for poker game death

County Judge Gelb says factors justified a sentence at the lower end of the scale. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Sonny Southerland said Thursday he hates what Jaboar Stanley did to his family. Stanley, 30, prosecutors say, shot and killed Southerland’s son, Emmanuel Felix, in February 2011 during a game of poker in Hazleton. “He killed him on my birthday,” Southerland, of Brooklyn, N.Y., said before Stanley was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison. “My beliefs tell me I should forgive him. And I forgive him.” Stanley, of Hazleton, was sentenced by Judge Lesa Gelb on charges of third-degree murder, receiving stolen property, tampering with evidence and two counts of possession of a firearm. Stanley pleaded guilty to the charges in May. Stanley could have faced a maximum of 20 to 40 years in prison, but Gelb said she took into consideration Stanley’s background and testimony from family members of both families at Thursday’s hearing. “This is a tragedy of epic proportions for all involved,” Gelb said. Stanley said Thursday he is sincerely sorry and he didn’t State Police, the Plains Police Department, and the Wyoming County Drug Task Force. and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy Phillips. WILKES-BARRE – A man was arraigned Thursday by District Judge Diana Malast on charges he was carrying heroin and cocaine.

He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of

I was under the influence … and Stanley playing around with a loaded gun,” Stanley said. “I have to live with this the rest of my life.” Stanley acknowledged that he originally lied about how Felix was shot – telling a story about an unknown man who entered the home, fired a round, and fled. “I messed up big time,” Stanley said. “I’m not the … malicious angry person … they make me out to be in the papers. I’m trying to better my life.” Also testifying Thursday were Kevin McCall, a cousin of Felix, and Geoffrey Davis, founder and CEO of James E. Davis Stop Violence Foundation in Brooklyn, N.Y., who said Felix had volunteered with his organization. Stanley’s wife and oldest son also spoke about the kind of father he is to his seven young children. Stanley took in Felix to live with him, his wife said, to help better Felix’s life. “The (sentence) is less than we were hoping for …,” First Assistant District Attorney Samuel Sanguedolce said. “The (victim’s) family is not disappointed; they understood the facts of the case.”

Ebert exited the building and rode away on the bicycle refusing to stop for officers. Police allege in the criminal complaint that heroin and cocaine were found in Ebert’s pockets.

OTHER OPINION: BUSH TAX CUTS

Political posturing hurts real people

W

HENEVER talk in Washington turns to the Bush tax cuts, few seem willing to separate election year bombast from the harsh economic reality that gridlock soon could cost this nation dearly. This week, President Barack Obama drew his line in the sand, proposing a one-year extension of the Bush tax cuts for families earning less than $250,000 a year. Republican lawmakers did the same, refusing to budge from their desire to make sure the wealthiest taxpayers also get tax breaks. The fight is purely political, disingenuous and a betrayal of middle-income families who are feeling the pinch of a stalling economy. We have a word to Washington: Go play chicken with someone else’s economy because this EDITORIAL BOARD

one is not strong enough to withstand the shock if tax cuts expire in December. At the very least, Congress and the White House must temporarily extend the Bush tax cuts to middleclass Americans as quickly as possible to provide a dose of certainty to the struggling economy. Further, if politicians are willing to look, there is considerable room for compromise among the president’s plan, the Republican position and a proposal by Sen. Charles Schumer of New York and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, which would temporarily extend tax cuts to families earning less than $1 million a year. We need leaders who will put middle-class families ahead of election-year politics. The Dallas Morning News

Bite that burger; meat does little to hurt environment AS THE thermometer continues to rise this summer, grillmasters and average Joes alike are bearing the heat and lighting up some charcoal. But before you dig in, you’ll have to wade through incessant lectures from animal rights and environmental activists about why burgers and BBQ are secretly killing Mother Earth. In a recent editorial, Princeton professor Peter Singer questioned why the United Nations had meat on the menu at its Rio+20 conference, in which participants discussed global strategies for combating climate change. To Singer, a godfather of the animal rights movement (not to be confused with animal welfare), the obvious answer is to attack animal agriculture. It’s a refrain heard not only among those who want to “liberate” animals for ethical reasons, such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or the Humane Society of the United States, but among the environmentalist crowd, too. The evidence, however, doesn’t have much meat on its bones. A 2006 U.N. study cited by Singer – an oft-cited gospel of the environmental movement – claimed to calculate that animal agriculture worldwide is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. More than even transportation. The only problem? Even one of the report’s authors has since walked it back, acknowledging methodological flaws. But even if these reports have some sem-

Young Republicans seek nothing from taxpayers

T

he political myth is that young Republicans or young conservatives only exist in small numbers and are only children of the wealthy. This myth could not be further from the truth. We are young adults – some students, some in the workforce – most of whom have student debt and bills to pay. And there are a lot of us. For the taxpayer, this is a good thing. Why? Unlike young liberals and many of those involved in the Occupy Wall Street

DOONESBURY

movement, we don’t want the taxpayers to take care of our every need. We don’t want the taxpayers to bail us out from decisions we have made. We don’t want the taxpayers to pay our school loans. We don’t want the taxpayers to pay for our contraceptives. We don’t want the taxpayers to pay for our health insurance. We want the taxpayers to have more money in their pockets so they can spend it how they choose. We believe in selfsufficiency and personal responsibility. We believe in owning up to the consequences of our decisions. We believe we should not be a burden on taxpayers but rather be productive and contribute. While young Democrats and young liberals are demanding that taxpayers pay for their student loans, their health insurance and everything else they believe they are “entitled” to, young conservatives are demanding nothing from taxpayers. Since the first Young Republican group was formed in 1911, we have been fighting to save the taxpayer money. Dr. Jennifer Rinehimer Wapwallopen

Penn State scandal key players

victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State,” Freeh said at a news conference in Philadelphia upon the release of the 267-page report. “The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized.” The findings of the $6.5 million, eight-month investigation into one of the biggest scandals in the history of college sports could further stain Paterno’s reputation. The revered coach who emphasized integrity both on and off the field and ran what was considered one of the cleanest programs in sports died of lung cancer in January at age 85, months after he was summarily fired by the trustees. Freeh said that while he regretted the damage the findings would do to Paterno’s “terrific legacy,” the coach “was an integral part of this active decision to conceal,” and his firing was justified. Asked whether the actions of the four officials amounted to a crime such as conspiracy or obstruction, Freeh said that would be a matter for a grand jury to decide. In a statement, Paterno’s family strongly denied he protected Sandusky for fear of bad publicity. “The idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover up for a child predator is impossible to accept. The far more realistic conclusion is that many people didn’t fully understand what was happening and underestimated or misinterpreted events,” the family said. “Sandusky was a great deceiver. He fooled everyone.” The findings could have consequences for the criminal case against Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and retired senior vice president Gary Schultz, who are awaiting trial on charges of failing to report abuse and lying to a grand jury. In addition, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office is still investigating the scandal, and others could be charged. Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. The investigation focused largely on the university officials’ decision not to go to child-welfare authorities in 2001 after a graduate coaching assistant told Paterno that he had seen Sandusky — a former assistant coach himself — sexually abusing a boy

Paterno and the others gave various explanations for their decision, saying among other things that they misunderstood the allegations, that they did the best they could and that this was the “humane” way to handle the matter. But the Freeh report said: “It is more reasonable to conclude that, in order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, the most powerful leaders at the university — Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley — repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse from authorities, the university’s board of trustees, the Penn State community and the public at large.” A number of other factors contributed to the decision to keep quiet, the report found, including “a culture of reverence for the football program that is ingrained at all levels of the campus community.” Spreading the blame around, the report also said the trustees

failed to exercise oversight and didn’t inquire deeply into the matter when they finally learned of it. Spanier’s lawyers Thursday denied Spanier took part in a coverup and said Freeh’s conclusion “is simply not supported by the facts.” Spanier was ousted along with Paterno four days after Sandusky’s arrest last November. An attorney for Curley had no immediate comment, and a lawyer for Schultz did not return messages. Freeh said officials had opportunities in 1998 and 2001 to step in. In 1998, police investigated after a woman complained that her son had showered with Sandusky. The investigation did not result in charges. But the emails show Paterno clearly followed the 1998 case, Freeh said. University officials took no action at the time to limit Sandusky’s access to campus. Then, after the 2001 report of Sandusky sexually abusing a boy

Reluctant to support it, councilman Bill Barrett asked George to reconsider and ask the mayor to administratively review the contract looking at severability and performance clauses. Barrett’s comments drew loud shouts of “No” from the audience. Leighton responded his administration stays on top of complaints about contractors. “When we do get a complaint we act on it,” he said and dismissed George’s motion saying there was “no reason to terminate the contract.” When there was no answer to a call for someone to second the motion to bring it to a vote, someone in the audience yelled, “Wimps!” But Barrett persisted with his call for a review saying he believed there was probable cause. He asked council to request a review the contract and documents in its possession and focus on the severability and performance clauses. He also called for the creation of a subcommittee made up of members of council, the administration and outside experts to conduct the review. “I want to look at this very methodically, very carefully and very analytically to ensure that everyone’s being treated fairly,” said Barrett. The last time the towing contract was terminated, the city ended up in federal court and paid Bob Kadluboski a couple hundred thousand dollars, said Barrett. The vote on Barrett’s motion was 3-1, with George opposed. Councilwoman Maureen Lavelle

was absent. After the meeting Leighton said he’s addressed issues brought to his attention and will continue to do so. “As I have in the past 81/2 years I’ve listened and sat with council on many issues and I’ll certainly sit down with councilman Barrett, members of my staff and the police chief and review their concerns,” he said. During the public comment period Glodzik and Kadluboski separately addressed council. “What I heard tonight is the same junk from the same people with the same accusations and the same kind of tactics they used before the last election,” said Glodzik. Some of those accusing him ran for mayor and council he said and the public “saw through their lies and deceitfulness” and did not elect them. “I am not a predatory tower,” he said. “I don’t go and look for people just to tow them,” he added and referred to a report Kadlu-

boski towed two cars from a lot while their owners were attending a funeral. Glodzik also said he did George a favor in 2004 and didn’t charge him for towing a relative’s car. Kadluboski called the council members “gutless cowards” and “spineless boneless things” for not backing George. “Tom Leighton’s not going to fire Leo Glodzik unless Tom Leighton gets bribed by somebody,” said Kadluboski. But Barrett responded to Kadluboski’s name-calling and brought up the towing at the funeral. “Mr. Kadluboski portrays himself as the most righteous of persons and no one here is worth anything,” said Barrett. The day of the funeral officers asked Kadluboski to show some compassion and not two the cars, and he replied, he has to make a living, said Barrett. Kadluboski shouted back they

According to the report, Spanier, Schultz and Curley drew up an “action plan” that called for reporting Sandusky to the state Department of Public Welfare. But Curley later said in an email that he changed his mind about the plan “after giving it more thought and talking it over with Joe.” Instead, Curley proposed to offer Sandusky “professional help.” In an email, Spanier agreed with that course of action but noted “the only downside for us is if the message isn’t (heard) and acted upon and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it.” Freeh suggested it was Paterno’s intervention that kept administrators from going to authorities. “Based on the evidence, the only known intervening factor ... was Mr. Paterno’s Feb. 26 conversation with Mr. Curley,” Freeh said. were parked illegally, asking “What do you want me to do?” While there was no problem hearing him speak, Mary Foran of Nashua, N.H. commented on having difficulty hearing the mayor. Foran, who was traveling the area on her way to a family reunion, said she and her friends found out about Wilkes-Barre from watching YouTube postings on the Internet and reading other media sources. “It is indeed surprising what goes on in WilkesBarre under Mayor Leighton’s leadership,” said Foran. She sat in the council meeting and watched the mayor while he looked at his cell phone during comments from the audience, stopping to pay attention when Glodzik spoke. Foran said she does not allow her students to use electronics while she is speaking to them and when they are speaking to others. She offered three suggestions to the mayor. “Look at people when they speak. Second, invite people who have concerns into your office, they might have great ideas. Third speak up, especially when people say they cannot here you,” she said. Karen Ceppa Hirko raised the issue of the missing fuel reported by The Times Leader earlier this month. “This is simply unacceptable,” she said. Hirko said she brought to council’s attention in October 2011certain employees were fueling up at the pumps and was met with silence when she asked about it then. “I would like to know from this council what steps you will take on this matter,” she said. No council members replied.

W-B Area OKs new legal fee plan The school district’s solicitor costs had skyrocketed in recent years. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – What kind of legal services does $195,000 buy for Wilkes-Barre Area School Board? Pretty much everything except work on “reverse tax appeals,” according to the agreement between the board and new solicitor Ray Wendolowski. The board voted 8-1 Wednesday to give Wendolowski the job at a monthly rate of $16,250 through June, 2013, a move that sparked sharp rebuke from board critic Bob Kadluboski. Prior to the vote, Kadluboski cited Wendolowski’s years as assistant solicitor while the solicitor post was held by Anthony Lupas. Lupas is facing federal charges that he ran an investment scheme unrelated to school board work. Legal fees have skyrocketed in the district, with payments to Lupas increasing sixfold in three years before he left the post in December. The board voted to have a forensic audit done on bills from both Lupas and Wendolowski dating back to 2006, something Wendolowski welcomed, and results of that audit are expected next month. Kadluboski had unsuccessfully urged the board to wait until then before hiring Wendolowski. Kadluboski also had asked the board to seek proposals to see if other attorneys would do the same work for less. On Thursday the district provided a copy of the agreement with Wendolowski, which said the monthly retainer covers “all requested legal services, including appellate court cases and bond work, except for reverse tax appeals.” A reverse tax appeal occurs when the district files the ap-

dure for hiring. That procedure, two board members said, included members taking turns recommending candidates for interviews. The proposed policy attempts to take such subjectivity out of the process. Applications and related paperwork would be given a numeric rating based on points allotted for meeting certain criteria. For example, up to 4 points could be garnered with a high college Grade Point Average, ranging from 1 point for a GPA between 3 and 3.24 to 4 points for a GPA between 3.75. The grade a candidate earned while student teaching, teaching experience, satisfactory substitute experienced in WilkesBarre area and related training are among the things rated in the point system. A candidate who graduated from WilkesBarre Area School District earns one point. “At a minimum,” the proposed policy says, “the top three applicants will be eligible for an interview for each vacant position” as long as there are at least three candidates. Board not involved The interview committee would have at least five members, including the superintendent, human resources officer, building principal and other administrators, as well as a teacher and “a parent or other designee.” Board members are barred from the interview process. The interview committee also rates the candidate in various areas, such as appearance, communication skills, body language and response to questions. A separate “teaching observation rubric” similarly rates a candidate’s teaching skills in 17 areas, if there is opportunity for

peal, contending a property’s assessed value is too low. In those cases Wendolowski would Wendolowski work on a “contingent fee basis.” A failed appeal would mean he gets no pay; if an appeal resulted in increased tax payments, Wendolowski would receive “20 percent of the increased tax revenue generated, for a three-year period, after taking into consideration the costs expended by the district.” According to the agreement, Wendolowski will not charge “for photocopies, long distance telephone calls, postage or travel costs (mileage, parking and tolls) or the cost of any lodging.” The district will reimburse Wendolowski for “out of pocket expenditures for filing fees with courts and administrative agencies, transcripts of court proceedings and depositions, and expert witness costs.” Wendolowski will not charge for paralegal work. The $195,000 is less than combined annual payments for solicitor and assistant solicitor work in any of the last three years. The district spent $214,636 for the two posts in 2009, $368,070 in 2010, and $540,969 in 2011. It’s also less than the district paid Wendolowski as assistant solicitor in 2010 and 2011, when payments to him were $196,563 and $212,013 respectively. In prior years, Wendolowski and Lupas billed hourly. Wendolowski noted Thursday the agreement eliminates that billing, though he will keep track of hours spent on district work and provide reports to the board. The agreement does not guarantee Wendolowski will remain solicitor for the full year. The board can cancel the agreement at will.

“At a minimum the top three applicants will be eligible for an interview for each vacant position as long as there are at least three candidates. ’’

observation. The board would then vote on whether to hire the top scorers in the interview process. The proposal gives preference to veterans: If a veteran is among the top three and the other candidates are non-veterans, the policy calls for hiring the veteran. And the proposal has an anti-nepotism Proposed policy clause – something Toole suggested when she moved to create a policy – though there is an out. The policy would bar the hiring of a “board member, the superintendent, the assistant superintendent, associate superintendent or assistants to the superintendents” unless the board finds “the public interest would be served and not harmed as a result of the candidate’s appointment.” A board member could not vote for a relative, and would have to publicly disclose the reason for abstaining. Board member Robert Corcoran, who chaired the committee that drew up the proposed policy, said the “rubrics” used to rate teacher applications and interviews were deliberately proposed as attachments to the policy, not incorporated into the policy, so they could be changed more easily. The proposed policy is to be posted for public view on the district website, wbasd.k12.pa.us, as part of the June 13 school board meeting minutes. The board could vote on the policy at its August meeting.

Yellow alert for Wiggins

Bradley Wiggins of Britain, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, climbs towards Croix de Fer pass during the 11th stage of the Tour de France over 92 miles with start in Albertville and finish in La Toussuire, French Alps, on Thursday.

British cyclist has won three Olympic medals LA TOUSSUIRE, France — Try as they might, rivals of Bradley Wiggins can’t take his yellow jersey. The three-time Olympic track champion, looking to become Britain’s first Tour de France winner, beat back repeated attacks Thursday in a crucial Al-

pine stage won by ace French climber Pierre Rolland. As Stage 11 began, Wiggins’ main challengers were planning to unsettle him in the 92-mile ride along three big climbs from the 1992 Winter Olympics town of Albertville to the ski station at La Toussuire. First, defending champion Cadel Evans took a shot at Wig-

gins on the longest climb — a tactic some questioned. On the way to the uphill finish, Belgium’s Jurgen Van Den Broeck tried, too. Then Vincenzo Nibali did, twice. Each time, Wiggins steadily, meticulously reeled them in. Evans petered out early. The 35-year-old Australian was dropped by Wiggins and others who

Four WVALL teams are all capable of taking home title when tournament is over.

Some may say that surprises always occur during the Wyoming Valley American Legion League playoffs. Others might argue that it’s not unexpected when an upset occurs somewhere along the line because over last eight years the No. 4 seed has either won the league title or advanced to the Region 5 Tournament five times. As the double-elimination event kicks off today at the Mountain Post 781 field with two games, anything can happen. That’s because with the way the schedule played out this season the four playoff teams – Mountain Post B, Greater Pittston, Hazleton and Tunkhannock – were all tightly bunched in the standings. Each team will be trying to win two games this weekend to advance to the Region 5 Tournament, as two will move on to the next round, set to begin July 21 in Scranton. Mountain Post B, which was comprised of a younger group of players making another squad for Mountain Post because there weren’t enough spots on the other, came out of nowhere to earn the tournament’s top seed with a 13-5 record after winning a coin flip with Greater Pittston. Two of the team’s wins came against the older Mountain Post A team. It also defeated Tunkhannock (11-7) twice and will face Tunkhannock again today at 5:30 p.m. in the doubleheader’s second game. The first game of the day pits second-seeded Greater Pittston (13-5) against No. 3 Hazleton (12-6). If there’s one team GP might have wanted to avoid in the first round, it’s Hazleton, which is responsible for two of the team’s five losses even though were both games were decided by one run. That’s about as clear as the playoff picture may be. The Day 2 matchups get much cloudier. Here’s a closer look at the possible second day matchups and

round at the U.S. Senior Open at Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, Mich., on Thursday.

The defenseman looked for deals elsewhere, but decided to return to the Penguins.

While Joey Mormina spoke with teams in Europe and North America about the possibility of signing a contract this summer, he always had Wilkes-Barre on his mind. The veteran defenseman signed a one-year AHL deal on Wednesday with the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins, returning for his fourth season with the club. And despite Mormina testing the waters with other teams, Mormina, 30, admits he never really wanted to leave. “Wilkes-Barre was always the front-runner,” Mormina said. “Whenever I met with other clubs, I always compared it to how it would be to play in Wilkes-Barre. Every time it never came close.” Mormina joins an organization with enormous depth on the blueline, thanks to draft picks and trades. The fact that Wilkes-Barre still wanted to bring him back with all the depth at defense meant a lot, Mormina said. He looks forward to building on last season, during which he scored 21 points in 59 games, as well as working with the bevy of rookies who will join the squad. “My game is still improving, but as I get older I like taking on that mentor role,” Mormina said. “I look forward to showing them how to be a pro on and off the ice, and helping them learn the system here.” Another reason behind Mormina’s decision to return is the opportunity to continue to build relationships with the organization that could possibly aid in a career after his playing days are over. Mormina said he has given some thought to coaching or becoming a scout when he is finished playing.

Royals senior made move from All-State setter

Mike Vamos

Arthur Reilly

Holy Redeemer The 6-foot-4 senior was another solid all-around player for the Royals, who consisted of many do-it-all athletes on the court. The outside hitter and defensive player was also one of the top defensive players in the Wyoming Valley Conference. A big part of his game is serving as he piled up 104 service points.

Coughlin The senior was selected by the Wyoming Valley Conference coaches as the Defensive Most Valuable Player and tallied a league-high 183 digs this season. A libero, he helped the Crusaders to a 6-6 record in a season which some might have thought they were going to struggle. Coughlin made a late run at a playoff berth and could have advanced if it completed near upset bids against Crestwood and North Pocono.

Holy Redeemer’s Rob Wingert, center, applauds his volleyball team’s victory over Crestwood during the second half of the season. Wingert, a two-time All-State pick, was The Times Leader Player of the Year.

Dom Verdetto

North Pocono A senior, 6-foot-3 hitter, he carried the Trojans on his back in several matches and helped them to an 11-1 regular season record, a third-place finish in the District 2 Class 2A Tournament and a berth in the PIAA Championships. He was one of the top hitters in the WVC and was also a part of the Trojans’ last district title in 2010.

Kyle Fine

Lake-Lehman Not a big player, standing at just 5foot-10, the senior helped the Black Knights advance to the district tournament with his gritty play. An opposite for Lake-Lehman, he helped the team all over the court whether it be getting a key kill, block or service point or setting up a teammate with an assist. He piled up 165 kills this season.

past my goal of $25,000 and the team to get past our goal of $100,000.” Shrive’s enthusiasm for the charitable project has landed him the position as vice president of Penn State’s Uplifting Athletes chapter. Through its event, the chapter has raised more than $600,000 for the Kidney Cancer Association since 2003. After making a major impact off the field, Shrive is building toward making one on the field. When first-year coach Bill O’Brien released his first depth chart June 5, Shrive made his first appearance on the second team. Originally considered one of the nation’s top recruits at tackle, the 6foot-6, 312-pounder is listed as the second right guard. Most important to Shrive is that he is closer to being among the five offensive linemen in the starting unit. “The thing I learned early on is that you’re not just a right guard and you’re not just a left tackle,” Shrive said. “We’re versatile on the offensive line. The only position on the offensive line I haven’t played is center.”

How Lift for Life works Offensive linemen will compete against defensive linemen; running backs and tight ends will go against linebackers; and quarterbacks and wide receivers will go against defensive backs to make Friday’s Lift for Life at Penn State more interesting to fans. Competition will be held in the tire flip, tug of war, an obstacle course and four other events during the fundraiser for the Kidney Cancer Association. Fans can make tax-deductible donations at www.upliftingathletes.org or by calling Deloris Brobeck at 814-865-1946 during business hours.

As a result, within the second-team players there is competition for playing time. “You have to prepare yourself for whatever,” Shrive said. “At the Division I level, you don’t have a back-up for every position. There’s two deep on the depth chart, but if something happens on the offensive line and Johnny’s your next best guy, he’s going to go in and you may have to move someone else. “The way we play is you play your five best guys and whoever is next has to go in.” O’Brien came out of spring practice saying he is happy with the depth in the offensive line. “The benefits of having so many guys on the depth chart across the offensive line are number one, if you have a health issue there really is not a big drop off to the next guy, and number two, you can keep guys fresh during the game, especially at the tempo we want

to play with,” he said. “There are probably eight to 10 guys up there who can play.” Although he has impressed coaches more than ever before, Shrive said he does not feel any different about how he fits in with the Nittany Lions. “Everyone’s a part of the team,” the hospitality management major said. “The equipment manager is as much a part of the team as the quarterback. At such a high skill level as you are at Penn State, and coach O’Brien preaches this, know your role. Everyone has a role.” Up until now, that role has often involved helping the starting defense get a look at the opposing offense. “I got a couple years experience playing against guys like Devon Still and Jared Odrick, who were first- (and second-) round draft picks, every day at practice,” Shrive said. “I’m really looking forward to this year.”

PLAYOFFS Continued from Page 1B

key figures for the four teams participating in this weekend’s Wyoming Valley American Legion League Playoffs at Mountain Post 781 in Rice Twp. Mountain Post-B Record: 13-5 (No. 1 seed) Last appearance: 2009 Last WVALL title: 2009 The skinny: The team’s last loss came to Plains on July 1 and has won two in a row, including a season-ending victory against Swoyersville to help earn the top seed. Two of the team’s losses are to Greater Pittston and another is to Hazleton. The fifth loss came against Nanticoke, which was in the playoff hunt until the final days of the regular season.

Greater Pittston Record: 13-5 (No. 2 seed) Last appearance: 2011 Last WVALL title: 2010 The skinny: The team is the most veteran of the tournament teams, consisting of seven post-grads on the roster, all of whom played on the last league championship in 2011. GP boasted a potent offense the last few seasons and this year has not been any different. Even though the league has been using wood bats, GP’s offense didn’t miss a beat, still scoring in double digits twice. Just three of the team’s losses are to playoff teams – two to Hazleton and a setback to Tunkhannock. The other two were to playoff-caliber Back Mountain and Swoyersville. The last time GP lost to a team other then Hazleton was June 27. Hazleton Record: 12-6 (No. 3 seed) Last appearance: n/a Last WVALL title: 1993

Jake Prohaska

Crestwood One of the top hitters in the WVC, the 6-foot-3 senior piled up a team-leading 176 kills this season, including his milestone 500th. To go with one of the highest ace totals in the WVC with 18, he led his team in blocks and helped the Comets enjoy their best record in school history with a 10-2 mark.

Nick Banos

Crestwood A senior setter, he piled up 345 assists this season, including several matches in which his total topped 30. The 6foot-2 Comet also reached a milestone when he dished out his 1,000th career assist in a regular-season match. He was a big part of the team’s success the last two seasons in which they made a run and were one of the top teams in District 2 both seasons. The skinny: Packed with a slew of players from the Hazleton Area High School team, which advanced to the District 2 Class 4A semifinals, the team is ready for a run. Hazleton’s six losses are comprised of two each to Plains and Tunkhannock. It also dropped one of two to Greater Pittston and Nanticoke. Before losing a doubleheader to Tunkhannock to end the season, Hazleton was streaking having winning five of six. Tunkhannock Record: 11-7 (No. 4 seed) Last appearance: n/a Last WVALL title: none (according to records dating back to 1976) The skinny: A potent offense, Tunkhannock recorded three games of double-figures in runs scored and two more games with nine runs this season. The team snuck into the playoffs on the last day of the regular season by sweeping a doubleheader from Hazleton. Before that sweep, Tunkhannock dropped three in a row.

Woman: I tended corpse, watched NASCAR The Associated Press

JACKSON, Mich. — A woman said she kept the dead body of her companion in a chair in their southern Michigan house for months because she didn’t want to be alone. Linda Chase, 72, said she kept the remains of Charles Zigler clean and dressed and talked to the body while watching NAS-

CAR on television. “It’s not that I’m heartless. ... I didn’t want to be alone. He was the only guy who was ever nice to me,” Chase told the Jackson Citizen Patriot. Jackson police discovered Zigler’s body in a living room chair last week. Authorities believe he died of natural causes at age 67 in December 2010, although Chase

said it was last December. She said there wasn’t a bad smell. She has not been arrested but is being investigated for financial fraud. Chase admits cashing Zigler’s benefit checks after his death. “I’m probably going to prison,” she told the newspaper. “I told them the truth. I didn’t lie about that.”

Matteson shoots 10-under to lead Deere Classic The Associated Press

SILVIS, Ill. — Troy Matteson scored 10 birdies Thursday en route to a bogey-free round of 10under 61 for a three-stroke stroke lead after one round of the John Deere Classic. Matteson, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, birdied five holes on each nine of the TPC Deere Run to surpass the 7-under 64 of second place Ricky Barnes. Matteson started by making birdies on three of his first four holes and finished with birdies on four

“Maybe in a couple years I can transition into one of those roles,” he said. “That’s why you always want to build those relationships.” Mormina is one of a handful of players from last year’s club who has re-signed. Regulars such as Bryan Lerg, Geoff Walker, Colin McDonald and Ben Street have all signed with other organizations.

end the drought on the front nine with an eagle from 155 yards at the 424-yard, par-4 No. 4 with a blind shot over a hill. “The gallery let me know it went in the hole,” Kite said. “So it must have run out nicely out of that semi-rough.” Kite also had five birdies before making the turn, leaving his playing partners — Peter Jacobsen and Scott Simpson — to marvel at his seven-under front nine. “I felt like the Washington Generals playing against the Harlem Globetrotters out there,” Jacobsen said. “He didn’t miss a shot on the front nine.” Simpson said Kite played textbook golf to have his way with a course with tight fairways, thick rough and quick greens the USGA set up to be the hardest on the

SCOTTISH OPEN INVERNESS, Scotland — Francesco Molinari tied the best round in the Scottish Open’s 40year history, shooting a 10-under

62 Thursday to take a two-shot lead into the second day of the British Open warmup tournament. The Italian rolled in 10 birdies in his first 15 holes in calm early conditions on the Castle Stuart links course, but missed out a chance to shoot the first 59 on the European Tour by finishing with three straight pars. Top-ranked Luke Donald looked set to finish close behind Molinari until he bogeyed two of his last five holes for a 67.

Mormina said he has spoken with many of last year’s teammates this summer and he was happy to see them get NHL deals to further their careers. “It will definitely be weird coming into this season being one of the lone survivors from last year,” Mormina said. “But I know a couple of the new guys and they’ll have no problem fitting in.” Having a contract in place well before training camp is a refreshing change for Mormina, who began his current stint with the Penguins two seasons ago as a

tryout after a deal in Europe fell through. Mormina said while he wanted to explore opportunities again in Europe, he didn’t want to drag the process out. And, with a wife, young daughter and a baby boy due in the next couple of weeks, it was important to Mormina to have a contract in place well before the season started. “It was a real easy decision to come back to Wilkes-Barre,” he said. “My family and I enjoy it there and we’re excited to come back.”

Champions Tour this year. “I certainly didn’t think there was a 28 out there,” Simpson said. Jacobsen, though, saw a breakout round coming from Kite after giving him lessons of sorts with Olin Browne recently at Pebble Beach. “We gave him a couple ideas, and they worked last week and they obviously were still working,” Jacobsen said. “We all know each other’s games and each other’s swings, so we can tell when something is a little off and help each other out.” Kite had the best nine-hole score in a USGA championship. There were seven 29s, including three at the U.S. Open, most recently by Vijay Singh in 2003. Olin Browne had the previous U.S. Senior Open record, shooting a 29 on the back nine in the third round last year at Inverness. Kite scrambled to save pars on the back nine, especially when

his drive at the 490-yard, par-4 12th — perhaps the toughest hole on the course — went left and into water. He recovered with a jaw-dropping approach from 209 yards that set him up with a 4-foot par-saving putt. “That was probably the best shot I had all day,” he said. Kite’s worst swing cost him a relatively comfortable cushion, heading into the second round. His tee shot at the 195-yard, par-3 17th landed in ankle-high rough on a decline to the left of the green. His flop shot went about 2 feet, leading to a double bogey that turned his three-shot lead into a one-stroke edge at the time. “This golf course is tough enough it will bite you,” Kite said. “Nobody’s going to play 72 holes out here without having it jump up on a hole or two and kick ‘em in the rear, and it got me on 17. There are just some places that, if you miss it, you’re going to pay the penalty.”

of his first five. He nearly holed out from a bunker on the par-4 ninth for a 60, but settled for par. Barnes, out in the second group of the day, birdied all three par-5s and two of the four par-3s to pace the morning half of the field.

SYRACUSE, N.Y – To say the second game of Thursday’s doubleheader between Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre and Syracuse was a pitcher’s duel would be an understatement. The Yankees and Chiefs were locked in a battle for12 scoreless innings in the second game at Alliance Bank Stadium after the Yankees took the opener 3-0 in a game that was picked up from April 10 when it was suspended. At press time the second game, originally slated for seven innings, was scoreless in the top of inning 13. The second game was so close that the teams only combined for 12 hits and one extrabase hit through 12 innings. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starter Adam Warren started the game and threw seven scoreless innings only giving up three hits and two walks, while fanning three. The first game, picked up from a contest on April 10, had some interesting tidbits. • When the game started, the temperature was 46 degrees. When it concluded temps were in the 80s. • Nationals’ rookie Bryce Harper was in the starting lineup for Syracuse and went hitless in two at-bats as the Chiefs’ centerfielder. • Steve Pearce (0-for-2), who is no longer with the Yankees’ organization, and Dewayne Wise (0-for-1, run scored) who is currently with New York, were in SWB’s starting lineup. • Mitch Atkins, who started the game for Syracuse, pitched all nine innings throwing 151 pitches, making 14 starts in between. • Ronnier Mustelier, who was with Double-A Trenton when the game started, laced an RBIdouble for the Yankees when play resumed in the top of the

twice and the Italian Giro once. He began the day 3:02 back in fifth place but lost more than13 minutes to Wiggins. Overall, Wiggins leads Sky teammate Christophe Froome, who rose to second, by 2:05. Nibali is third, 2:23 back. Van Den Broeck is fifth, 4:48 behind. Wiggins also patched things up with Nibali, who a day earlier hadn’t taken kindly to a seeming glare from the Sky leader. As they finished together Thursday, Wiggins gave him a peacemaking pat on the back. The Alpine stage shaped up as a pivotal moment because mountains and time trials tend to determine who wins the Tour. Wiggins’ rivals saw it as their chance to strike. He looks unstoppable in the time trials: He won one Monday and another one comes the day before the July 22 finish in Paris. Their last opportunity could await in yet another uphill finish in the Pyrenees next Thursday. Rolland, a 25-year old Europcar rider, gave his team its second straight stage victory. It was his second in two years following his victory on the fabled Alpe d’Huez in 2011. The joy of victory contrasted with his “immense pain” weeks earlier. Two days before the Tour start, a French sports daily revealed a previously unknown investigation of his team over allegations of improper use of a controlled substance in the 2011 Tour. The team denies the claim. But fans in Belgium — where the race began June 30 — jeered at some Europcar riders, and Rolland said he was spit on. “The evening after the prologue I was really down,” he said. “I told myself: ‘If that’s what the Tour is all about, I’d rather go home.”’ He said the fans’ reaction at home in France has been more charitable. The race stays in the Alps on Friday with a141-mile ride from Saint-Jean-De-Maurienne to Annonay Davezieux.

The Olympic Torch is being carried around England in a relay of torchbearers to make its way to the London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony.

NBC launches two apps

NEW YORK — NBC is launching two mobile apps that will let people watch Olympics events as they happen, look up athlete profiles and access other extra content on their iPads, iPhones and certain Android devices. NBC says most of the content will be available only to pay-TV subscribers who have MSBC and CNBC as part of their service. The apps — NBC Olympics and NBC Olympics Live — are free to download starting Thursday. The apps were created by Adobe Systems Inc. Adobe says NBC will receive analysis about how people interact with the content and ads on the apps. NBC says is the first time that all the Olympic events, more than 3,500 hours of coverage, will be available on smartphone and tablet computers.

WASHINGTON — Uniforms for U.S. Olympic athletes are American red, white and blue — but made in China. That has members of Congress fuming. Republicans and Democrats railed Thursday about the U.S. Olympic Committee’s decision to dress the U.S. team in Chinese manufactured berets, blazers and pants while the American textile industry struggles economically with many U.S. workers desperate for jobs. “I am so upset. I think the Olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told reporters at a Capitol Hill news conference on taxes.

“If they have to wear nothing but a singlet that says USA on it, painted by hand, then that’s what they should wear,” he said, referring to an athletic jersey. Reid House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference that she’s proud of the nation’s Olympic athletes, but “they should be wearing uniforms that are made in America.” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said simply of the USOC, “You’d think they’d know better.” In a statement, the U.S. Olympic Committee defended the choice of designer Ralph Lauren for the clothing at the London Games, which begin later this month. “Unlike most Olympic teams around the world, the U.S. Olympic Team is privately funded and we’re grateful for the support of our sponsors,” USOC spokesman Patrick Sandusky said in a statement. “We’re proud of our partnership

with Ralph Lauren, an iconic American company, and excited to watch America’s finest athletes compete at the upcoming Games in London.” Ralph Lauren also is dressing the Olympic and Paralympic teams for the closing ceremony and providing casual clothes to be worn around the Olympic Village. Nike has made many of the competition uniforms for the U.S. and outfits for the medal stand. On Twitter, Sandusky called the outrage over the made-in-China uniforms nonsense. The designer, Sandusky wrote, “financially supports our team. An American company that supports American athletes.” Ralph Lauren’s company declined to comment on the criticism. In fact, this is not the first time that Ralph Lauren has designed the Olympic uniforms. Yet that did little to quell the anger on Capitol Hill. “It is not just a label, it’s an economic solution,” said Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y. “Today there are 600,000 vacant manufacturing jobs in this country and the Olympic committee is outsourcing the

manufacturing of uniforms to China? That is not just outrageous, it’s just plain dumb. It is self-defeating.” Israel urged the USOC to reverse the decision and ensure U.S. athletes wear uniforms that are made in America. In a tweet, U.S. track and field Olympian Nick Symmonds, who will compete in the 800-meter run at the London Games, wrote: “Our Ralph Lauren outfits for the Olympic opening ceremonies were made in China. So, um, thanks China.” This is hardly the first time patriotism has been discussed when it comes to Olympic clothing. The must-have souvenir of the 2002 Salt Lake Games was a fleece beret, something that athletes wore in the opening ceremony and prompted countless people to spend hours on lines waiting to purchase during those Olympics. Those berets were made by Roots, a Canadian company that was the official U.S. team outfitter for that opening ceremony. ABC World News reported Wednesday night that the uniforms were made in China.

Gold, overall medal counts a ‘stretch’ for US

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The chief of sport performance for the U.S. Olympic team calls it a stretch for Americans to win the most overall and gold medals at the London Olympics. Alan Ashley said Thursday the goal for the Americans to win both medal counts is “very ambitious, very difficult.” “But it’s good to have those stretch goals as an organization,” Ashley said. The United States won the overall count in 2008, 110-100 over secondplace China. But China won 51 golds to 36 for the U.S. Longtime Olympic prognosticator Luciano Barra of Italy predicts China will win 100 overall and 43 gold medals, with Russia at 79 and 30 and the United States at 78 and 35.

Jordan: 1992 Dream Team better than 2012 squad

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Michael Jordan says there’s no way Kobe Bryant and this year’s USA Olympic basketball team could’ve beaten the 1992 Dream Team. Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed, “I absolutely laughed” when hearing Bryant’s comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company. Jordan says there was “no comparison” which team was better, adding that Byrant comparing the two teams “is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done.” Jordan spoke prior to a celebrity golf tournament in Charlotte. He says the 1992 team, which included 11 future Hall of Famers and won its six games by an average of more than 43 points en route to capturing the gold medal, may not have been as athletic but was definitely smarter.

Olympic village opens; tight quarters for athletes

LONDON — The Olympic village has opened for athletes. And if Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps decide to stay there, forgive them if they feel a little cramped. Each sparsely decorated room has two single beds next to bedside tables and small lamps. But the beds are only 5 feet, 8 inches long, meaning many athletes might need extensions to get a good night’s sleep. Bolt is 6-5 and Phelps is 6-4. With two weeks until the Olympics open July 27, London Mayor Boris Johnson made a final inspection tour of the area Thursday. About 17,000 athletes and officials are expected to live at the village, which is inside the Olympic Park and close to main stadium and swimming venue.

U.S. Olympic swim team member Michael Phelps, shown, was criticized by teammate Tyler Clary for a lack of work ethic. Phelps has 14 Olympic gold medals and Clary did not qualify for the 2008 Olympic team.

He should try harder “The fact that he doesn’t have to work as hard to get that done, it’s a real shame.”

By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Michael Phelps has talked with Tyler Clary after his Olympic teammate questioned his work ethic and isn’t worried about what anyone says. “For me right now the only thing I’m worried about is myself and preparing myself to go out and represent my country and step up and wear the stars and stripes and try to swim as fast as I can,” Phelps said Thursday at media day for the U.S. Olympic swimming team. “There’s nothing else that needs to be said about it.” Phelps will compete in seven events at the London Games. Phelps originally wasn’t going to talk to reporters Thursday before stopping to take two questions on his way from the pool at the University of Tennessee. And he knew at least one would be about Clary’s comments to The Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif., on Monday. Clary told the newspaper that he works harder than Phelps and sees the

14-time Olympic gold medalist as somebody ready to be beaten because of Phelps’ lack of preparation. He swam at Michigan when Phelps was taking classes and training at the university for Beijing Games. Clary missed the 2008 Olympic team. “The fact that he doesn’t have to work as hard to get that done, it’s a real shame,” Clary told the newspaper. “I think it’s too bad. ... I think the things he could have done if he’d worked as hard as I do would have been even more incredible than what he has pulled off.” Clary, a first-time Olympian, said Thursday he regretted creating a distraction and should have kept his comments focused on himself. He said he spoke to Phelps and there are no hard

feelings. “It was more of a relief to me to make sure that he knew that’s not how I feel about him,” Clary said. Bob Bowman, Phelps’ long-time coach, laughed when asked if he put Clary up to making those comments. The coach said there wasn’t much reaction with Phelps just focusing on what he’s doing. A year ago, Clary won silver in the 400 individual medley at the world championships in Shanghai. Phelps and Ryan Lochte are the two Americans in that event in London, part of a showdown Lochte compared to Michael Jordan versus Magic Johnson. The comparison raises the question who is Jordan? “We’ll have to decide that after this Olympics,” Lochte said.

Saudis send women to Games for first time By STEPHEN WILSON AP Sports Writer

LONDON — Every country competing at the London Games will include female athletes for the first time in Olympic history after Saudi Arabia agreed Thursday to send two women to compete in judo and track and field. The move by the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom to break with its practice of fielding male-only teams followed decisions by Qatar and Brunei to send women athletes to the Olympics for the first time. “With Saudi Arabian female athletes now joining their fellow female competitors from Qatar and Brunei, it means that by London 2012 every national Olympic committee will have sent women to the Olympic Games,” IOC President Jacques Rogge said. Saudi Arabia had been under intense pressure from the International Olympic Committee and human-rights groups to include female athletes. The announcement Thursday fol-

lowed months of IOC negotiations with the Saudis to bring women to London. The two female Saudi competitors are Wodjan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani in judo and 800-meter runner Sarah Attar. “A big inspiration for participating in the Olympic Games is being one of the first women for Saudi Arabia to be going,” the 17-yearold Attar said in an IOC video from her U.S. training base in San Diego. “It’s such a huge honor and I hope that it can really make some big strides for women over there to get more involved in sport.” Attar, who has spent most of her life outside of Saudi Arabia, said she hopes her inclusion will encourage women in the conservative kingdom that does not allow women to vote, drive or participate in sports. “To any woman who wants to participate, I say ‘go for it,’ and don’t let anybody hold you back,” Attar said in the video after running a lap on the track wearing pants and a headscarf.

LAS VEGAS — Kevin Durant had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead the U.S. Olympic basketball team to a 113-59 victory over the Dominican Republic on Thursday night in an exhibition game. The MVP of the world basketball championship two years ago, Durant came off the bench to shoot 9 of 11 from the field, making 5 of 6 3-pointers in 22 minutes. Andre Iguodala added 18 points and Carmelo Anthony had 13 for the Americans, who were without All-Star forward Blake Griffin. He returned to Los Angeles for evaluation Thursday after experiencing discomfort following practice Wednesday in his left knee, the same one that bothered him in the playoffs. Alternate Anthony Davis took his place and was in uniform against his college coach, John Calipari of national champion Kentucky. Griffin hurts knee at camp LAS VEGAS — Blake Griffin has returned to Los Angeles for evaluation of a left knee injury, opening the door for Anthony Davis to be in uniform Thursday for the U.S. Olympic basketball team against his college coach. Griffin went through a full practice Wednesday before reporting discomfort in the same knee that bothered him in the playoffs, USA Basketball said. He left Thursday and missed the Americans’ exhibition opener against the Dominican Republic. The Clippers, who just signed Griffin to a five-year, $95 million extension, said the All-Star forward will undergo an MRI and be examined by the Clippers’ medical staff upon his arrival. He also will be examined Sunday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic and his status will be updated after that.

By RACHEL COHEN AP Sports Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Jason Kidd is already talking about how he’ll mentor Jeremy Lin even as the New York Knicks aren’t ready to formally announce the young point guard will be returning. The Knicks introduced newest members Kidd and Marcus Camby on Thursday, though the transaction everyone kept asking about was when they’ll re-sign the restricted free agent. While the 39-year-old Kidd made clear he believes he can help the Knicks win games in crunch time, he also embraced the role of tutoring Lin in the in-

able to share my secrets or what I’ve learned in my 18 years — for him hopefully to take it to another level, it’s something I look forward to doing,” Kidd said. A day after coach Mike Woodson reiterated that Lin “absolutely” would be back, general manager Glen Grunwald said New York had yet to receive the Houston Rockets’ offer sheet. Grunwald said the Knicks’ did have Landry Fields’ offer sheet from the Toronto Raptors. “Those are two young players who will hopefully be back here,” Grunwald said. “We’ll make our final determination when we need to make that determination. Now is not the time.” Kidd, in contrast, talked with certainty about his future team-

that’s a very high gear,” Kidd said. “We need to sit down and talk about trying to find that fourth and third gear so he has the energy to finish ballgames. We want him to play the whole season. If you have just one gear, it’s hard to play 82 games.” Lin missed the last 17 regularseason games and the first-round playoff loss to Miami after surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. Kidd recalled that at the start of his career, he, too, was always stuck in fifth gear. After arriving in Phoenix in his third season, he learned how to conserve energy. “Now I only have two gears,” he joked. “There’s no shifting.” Kidd said he was comfortable backing up Lin — at the start of

games. He still wants to be on the court at the end and hinted he and Lin could share the floor then. “My job is to make Jeremy better in practice and stuff like that,” Kidd said. “At the end of the day, it’s about six minutes. If I’ve learned anything in the last 18 years is the last six minutes of any NBA game, if you’re down 15 or up 15, you can win or lose.” Kidd said it was surreal to return to the New York area, where he led the New Jersey Nets to two NBA Finals appearances in seven seasons. Now the Nets are in Brooklyn and Kidd will be playing at Madison Square Garden. The 38-year-old Camby’s career is also coming full circle. Hailing from nearby Hartford, Conn., he played for the Knicks from 1998-2002 before being traded to Denver for Antonio McDyess.

Buffet says the economy is slowing

Jobless plunge a blip?

The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits plunged last week by 26,000 to a seasonally adjusted 350,000 — the fewest since March 2008. But a big reason is that automakers skipped some of their usual summer shutdowns to keep up with demand, leading to fewer temporary auto layoffs. Economists expect the number of Americans seeking unemployment aid to go back up in coming weeks. “Take July with a grain of salt,” Jill Brown, an economist at Credit Suisse, said in a note to clients.

Airfares up 13% in 2 years

An industry group says the price of airlines tickets rose 5.5 percent during the first half of this year. The Airlines Reporting Corp., which handles financial settlements between the airlines and third parties who sell tickets, said that January-June airfares are now 13 percent higher than they were just two years ago. The number of passengers buying tickets through the 16,000 travel agents working with ARC rose slightly, 0.5 percent from the prior year. Travel, however, is down 1.6 percent compared with two years ago.

The Greensboro, N.C.-based company manufactures Veggie Stix and Veggie Chips, fried vegetable snacks that CEO Mark Gillis called “revolutionary” in that they retain the nutritional content of the vegetables they are made from. “When you process vegetables in any way at all, you destroy the nutrients that were in the vegetables to begin with,” Gillis said. “That’s been a problem with packaged foods from the beginning of time … This is all natural; this is not through synthetic vitaminization – the type of thing that you see in breakfast cereal, for example.” A serving of Veggie Stix, one-third of a 6-ounce bag, contains equivalent nutrients to 1 1/2 cups of fresh vegetables.

OMAHA, Neb. — Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Thursday that U.S. economic growth has slowed in the last two months as fears about Europe’s debt woes mounted. Buffett’s comments during an interview Thursday on the cable TV network CNBC contrast with what he has been saying for a couple years. Buffett said the U.S. economy has not turned negative, but business in Europe has dropped off quickly in the past two months. Berkshire Hathaway’s chairman and CEO draws insight into the economy from the reports he gets from the Omahabased company’s subsidiaries and investments which range from railroads and power companies to insurance, carpet and soft drinks. “The general economy has been pretty much flat,” said Buffett, who was in Sun Valley, Idaho, attending the annual conference hosted by investment banker Allen & Co. that attracts Wall Street and media moguls. He said one bright spot is that businesses tied to residential housing are improving a bit. “The little pickup in housing has not been enough to offset what has been going on in the rest of the world,” Buffett said.

There is also an attached distribution center. “Look how big they are when they come out,” Production Manager Mike DeAngelo said this week, gesturing to a column of Veggie Stix climbing a cooling line. “Amazing, isn’t it?” Gillis said access to highways and nearby markets brought his company to Pittston. “A large percentage of our business is sold to the Northeast and having access to those markets in that location was really what attracted us to there,” Gillis said. Wegmans supermarkets, where a 7 oz. bag was priced at $2.99 last week, is among the retailers selling the line. The plant currently employs 15 full-time workers – six on the production line and nine in the distribution center. Fueled by consumer interest in healthy and organic foods, Gillis said sales of the company’s snacks are al-

By LINDA A. JOHNSON AP Business Writer

TRENTON, N.J. — Growth in global spending on medications will slow markedly over the next four years due to a slew of new low-cost generic drugs coming to pharmacies in the U.S. and other developed countries, along with slower increases in what those countries spend on brand-name drugs, according to a new forecast. That’s good news for patients and the employers, labor unions and taxpayerfunded government health programs that help pay for drugs. During a same period, from 2012 through 2016, the pharmaceutical industry will sharply boost its sales in emerging markets including China, India and Russia, according to the report from data firm IMS Health, which collects and analyzes data on pharmaceutical sales around the world. Spending will grow at “historically low levels” in the U.S. and might even decline by a percent in Europe, the report states.

ready creating a need for the company to increase production. DeAngelo said the company hopes to add a second production line at the facility, which would require six or seven new hires. The jobs start out at about $9 per hour and come with a benefits package including health, dental and vision coverage, bonus programs, 401(k) and two weeks paid vacation. Employees work four 10-hour shifts per week. Mitch DePrimo of West Pittston has worked on the production line at the plant since its opening. “It’s a great opportunity for jobs in the area,” he said. “I know jobs have been hard to come by, so it’s a good thing for the area.”

We've had high temperatures at or above 90 on 8 of the past 16 days. That already about equals our average number of 90 degrees days and the season is only half over. Although temperatures here this weeklend will be a little cooler than recent days, our next chance for any real heat relief won't arrive until late next week. The humidity will be increasing the next few days, so conditions will become more ripe for showers and storms over the weekend. Another indication of how dry it's been lately is the river gauge reading at Wilkes-Barre now showing zero feet. Our rainfall since June 1 is now 2.23" below normal. - Tom Clark
