The state also assesses an 18-percent levy, thanks to a 75-year-old tax created in 1936 to help pay for the cleanup, recovery and assistance to victims of that year’s Johnstown Flood.

When it began, the 10 percent “Johnstown Flood Tax” was intended to be temporary. According to johnstownfloodtax.com, though the $40 million recovery was assisted by the federal government and completed within six years, the tax was never repealed. In fact, it has been increased twice since. In 1963, it was raised to 15 percent and five years later, it was hiked to 18 percent, where it remains today. “The Johnstown Flood Tax

was instituted for a particular purpose, which is no longer valid. For that reason, I am opposed to this tax,” said state Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake. “It is the cautionary tale of why we should always beware of new taxes because they never seem to go away.

It’s wall-to-wall bands at Montage R E V I E W

It was a long, hot day of music Thursday as the Vans Warped Tour made its annual stop at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain. More than 80 bands played on eight stages scattered throughout the grounds of the Scranton amphitheater, with the first groups hitting the boards at 11:30 a.m. and the last ones scheduled to go on at 8 p.m. The word of Thanks to the the day might few moments very well have been eclectic I spent with as bands spethe band I Set cializing in My Friends On rock, punk, ska, reggae, Fire, I now alternative, know what metalcore, “screamo” hip-hop and a whole host of music is. other musical styles were on the bill. Main-stage headliners included The Devil Wears Prada, August Burns Red, Asking Alexandria, Paramore, Less Than Jake and A Day to Remember. As much of the day’s music happens simultaneously, it is impossible to take in all of the sights and sounds offered by the Warped Tour, but you can plan a good strategy with the aid of the stage schedules and a map of the facility. As you make your way past the various merchandising tents, the atmosphere feels a lot like a carnival with the bands themselves becoming the barkers trying to get you to stop for a few minutes and partake of their particular brand of music.

HARRISBURG – One player matched all five winning numbers drawn in Thursday’s “Pennsylvania Cash 5” and won $762,411. Lottery officials said 183 players matched four numbers and won $234.50 each and 6,848 players matched three numbers and won $10.50 each. Monday’s “Pennsylvania Match 6 Lotto” jackpot will be worth at least $650,000 because no player holds a ticket with one row that matches all six winning numbers drawn in Thursday’s game.

Standouts included “Something Salty, Something Sweet” with the band sounding a lot like Rusted Root and “Mexico,” with mariachi band-style trumpets. For the next hour or so, I went from stage to stage taking in samples of a few different collectives and a few different styles. First up was Foxy Shazam, a glam-rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, followed by Pepper, a three-piece reggae band from Hawaii. Then I stopped for a few minutes to catch a little bit of Shira, a female singer from Brooklyn playing her second of nine dates on the tour.

Thanks to the few moments I spent with the band I Set My Friends On Fire, I now know what “screamo” music is. For the uninitiated, it is a style of hardcore with shrieking vocals and hard hitting guitar licks not unlike a lot of alternative metal, according to allmusic.com. Also caught a few minutes of a hard rocking alternative band from Detroit called D.R.U.G.S. (stands for “Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows”), which seemed quite popular with the large gathering at the Nintendo 3DS stage, a punk band from England called The Exposed and a reggae band from Los Angeles called The Aggrolites. The Vans Warped Tour, which has been crossing the country since 1995, continues on through Aug. 14. Upcoming stops include the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, N.J., on July 21 and in Burgettstown, Pa., on July 22. The next show at the Toyota Pavilion is hip-hop star Lil Wayne on July 19.

WILKES-BARRE – Former Luzerne County judge Mark Ciavarella is painting for a living these days. On Thursday, Ciavarella was painting a porch at 313 McLean St. owned by Bob Kadluboski, owner of City Wide Towing. Kadluboski is a frequent vocal critic of Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton and City Council, at times calling them “corrupt” and saying they should be investigated. “Yes, he (Ciavarella) has been doing odd jobs for me,” Kadluboski said. “He’s not my employee. He’s an independent contractor.” Kadluboski said Ciavarella has been

A Larksville woman who had to put up a for sale sign on her Sondra Drive home due to a theft of money will sell her belongings at an estate sale this weekend.

Her niece, Marisa Harlen, 29, of Kingston, is scheduled to appear in court on Monday on one count of receiving stolen Harlen property. Prosecutors say Harlen had access to the money when she assumed Olenik’s power of attorney. Olenik put her home up for sale in January, and the estate sale will be held this weekend. Olenik has previously said she must sell the furnishings and her house to pay bills and worries how she will pay to live in a nursing home or pay for 24-hour nurse care. HERSHEY

Harveys Lake residents to get low-cost well water tests The testing is not connected with drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale. By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

HARVEYS LAKE – Borough residents can have their well water tested at a reduced cost and have a questionand-answer session with a water expert after the tests are completed. The Harveys Lake Environmental Advisory Council is offering test kits and the water testing, which have a retail cost of $200, for $85 as a public service to Harveys Lake residents, said council member Susan Vosik Pekala. Test kits can be picked up at the borough building during regular business

hours through July 23 and must be dropped off at the borough building between 10 a.m. and noon on that date. The $85 must be paid when a kit is picked up. The tests are being conducted by the Wilkes University Water Quality Laboratory in conjunction with the advisory council. Confidential test results will be mailed to residents within two weeks of the test. Residents as well as the general public will have the opportunity to attend a water quality informational presentation by Brian Oram, a geologist and director of Wilkes University’s Center for Environmental Quality, at 10 a.m. on Aug. 13 at the borough building. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. Vosik Pekala said the council is offer-

ing the tests “as a public service to community residents so they’re aware of what’s in the drinking water.” The council has been offering the service for the past several years, she said. She noted that test results do not meet requirements of a legal baseline water well test. However, the tests are a valuable, cost-effective opportunity for homeowners to monitor the safety of their drinking water, she said.

Two Luzerne County men have attained the rank of lieutenant with the Pennsylvania State Police. The official promotion ceremony will be held today at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in Hershey.

Disaster aid wins approval

Gov. Tom Corbett said the federal government has approved his request for disaster aid to help communities in Bradford, Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga and Wyoming counties recover from a devastating storm that moved through the region from April 25-28. The Public Assistance program will provide approximately $19 million in federal funds for county and municipal governments to help recover the cost of debris removal, emergency services related to the disaster and repairing or replacing damaged public facilities such as roads, bridges, utilities, buildings, schools, recreational areas and similar publicly owned property. In addition, the money will also be directed to some private nonprofits engaged in community service activities. “April was one of the wettest months on record, and these five counties sustained tremendous damages from which they simply cannot recover on their own,” said Glenn Cannon, director of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. “We appreciate that the federal government recognized our need and granted our request.” WYOMING

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Military pallbearers on Thursday carried Betty Ford’s rose-covered casket into the church where she and her husband were married more than 60 years ago for a final memorial service to remember the former first lady. Steven Ford described for mourners the family’s bond, referring to them as a naval fleet. “Dad was the aircraft carrier. I know that,” he said. “If Mom was in our fleet, which she was, she was the hospital ship. She was the one there with the love and the comfort.” “She just knew how to love,” he added. “We felt her love long before her spotlight came ...

A PERFECT FIT AT THE ART DISTRICT

U.S., Pakistani military talk en. David Petraeus, the outgoing U.S. commander in Afghanistan, G and his soon-to-be successor met with

top military leaders in Pakistan on Thursday as the two countries struggled to resolve tensions over the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Petraeus and Marine Lt. Gen. John Allen’s visit was part of a flurry over meetings between diplomats and military leaders of the two countries since the May 2 strike against the al-Qaida chief in the northwest Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad. Pakistani civilian and military leaders are angry over the raid because the Americans did not warn them about it, although they insist they had no idea the terror leader was on their soil. In response, they have kicked out many U.S. military trainers and asked the Americans to reduce their footprint in the country.

Edwards trial date set

The trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards can begin in October, a federal judge said Thursday, despite arguments from the ex-senator’s lawyers that they need more time. Edwards is accused of accepting illegal campaign contributions to hide an affair during his unsuccessful 2008 White House bid. Prosecutors also say he filed false campaign reports to cover up the payments. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six felony charges. His lawyers had argued for a January trial, but District Court Judge Carlton Tilley said repeatedly that postponing the trial was not an option. “You folks have not brought a whole lot more to the table than you did last month,” when lawyers successfully sought a delay in scheduling the trial, the judge said.

Cause of rupture unknown

It will likely be months before investigators know what caused an ExxonMobil oil pipeline to rupture near Billings, Mont., spilling about 1,000 barrels of crude oil into the Yellowstone River, a federal safety official said Thursday. Thus far, investigators are unaware of any safety violations by ExxonMobil related to the spill, Cynthia Quarterman, administrator of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration told a congressional hearing. The spill has fouled shoreline and contaminated backwaters along dozens of miles of the scenic river. The oil giant is working on a plan to lay a new section of pipe 30 feet below the river to replace the damaged pipe responsible for the spill, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company President Gary Pruessing said. The flow of oil through the pipeline has been shut off since the July 1 accident. CAIRO

Mubarak denies kill orders

Ousted President Hosni Mubarak has denied any responsibility for his security forces killing nearly 900 protesters during Egypt’s uprising, according to a transcript of his interrogation published on Thursday. Asked to explain the killings, Mubarak dismissed the lethal crackdown by saying: “Our people and our security are like that.” Mubarak, 83, is in custody in an Egyptian hospital. He faces charges of ordering the use of deadly force against demonstrators during the 18-day revolt that swept him from power in February.

Blast kills 5 at Karzai memorial

Man hid bombs in turban for service at mosque for Afghanistan leader’s assassinated half brother. By MIRWAIS KHAN and HEIDI VOGT Associated Press

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — A man hiding explosives in his turban blew himself up Thursday inside a mosque where Afghan officials were attending a memorial service for the president’s assassinated half brother, killing five people. The attack in Kandahar city heightens fears that security in the already volatile south will unravel with the death of Ahmed Wali Karzai, who was considered the region’s most powerful man. The Sarra Jamai mosque had been filled with relatives and friends of Wali

Karzai, two days after he was shot at close range by a confidant at his home. President Hamid Karzai was not at the memorial service, having returned to Kabul after his brother’s funeral on Wednesday. President Karzai said the bombing inside a mosque was an attack on religious faith. The attacker appeared to have targeted Hekmatullah Hekmat, the head of the provincial clerical council, who was among the dead, according to Kandahar Gov. Tooryalai Wesa. “There was a prayer going on and after that prayer the man came close to the director of the religious council and exploded,” Wesa said. “It looks like he was targeting the director.” The Kandahar provincial government said all other high-ranking officials who

had been at the ceremony were safe and had been taken to a secure location. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which also killed a child and wounded 15 people, the Interior Ministry said. Officials believe the bomber got the explosives past security by hiding them in his turban. The governor, who was attending the memorial, said he saw the man’s turban explode. Provincial intelligence chief Gen. Mohammad Naeem Momin said authorities drew the came conclusion after examining the bomber’s remains. Tuesday’s slaying of Wali Karzai left the president without a powerful ally and threatened to create a power vacuum in the former Taliban stronghold and the site of recent military offensives by the U.S.-led military coalition.

HARRISBURG — Members of an advisory panel will vote today on their final recommendations to Gov. Tom Corbett on how the state should address issues related to natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale, but those recommendations will not be made public until they are sent to the governor a week later, an administration official said. The final meeting for the 30member Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission comes four months after Corbett picked its members, many from the industry and his administration, and asked it to recommend ways the state can best capitalize on the economic potential of the state’s natural gas drilling boom while containing environmental problems and impact. The meeting will be public. The recommendations being voted on will not be publicly disclosed, although it is possible that the recommendations will be debated at Friday’s meeting and that amendments will be offered to some, said a spokesman for Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley, who chairs the commission. The panel is under no legal obligation to meet publicly, although it does, and has no obligation to disclose the proposed recommendations before they are voted on, said the spokesman, Chad Saylor. The recommendations are to be made public when they are sent to the governor no later than July 22.

Army treating brain injuries in field instead of returning soldiers to U.S. By KRISTIN M. HALL Associated Press

BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan — The Army changed the way it deals with traumatic brain injury in Afghanistan and Iraq because U.S. soldiers often are targeted by roadside or suicide bombs. Not treating the sometimes hard-tospot injury can lead to physical and emotional problems that linger long after the soldier returns home. But soldiers who are sent home for treatment generally don’t come back. Now, after diagnosis in the field, sol-

diers are sent to a rehab clinic Medical crews use leisure activities and military fitness tests to determine whether a soldier is fit to return to duty. The clinics are also stocked with card games and Wii video games, which help occupational therapists look for memory loss or balance issues. Soldier patients meet daily with doctors and have occupational therapists who monitor symptoms like concentration, balance, headaches and dizziness. One of the final assessments is a military performance test. The soldiers

a return to the unit. Clinics that opened last year in eastern Afghanistan returned about 1,000 soldiers to their units, said Maj. Kevin Ridderhoff.

State will offer advice and a helping hand to farmers By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

JACKSON TWP. – Area farmers soon will be getting friendly visits from an official with the Luzerne Conservation District about their erosion and sediment control and manure management practices. The state Department of Environmental Protection recently announced $2.6 million in grants to the state’s 36 conservation districts in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed for “increased outreach to the agricultural community.” The funding will support 50 staff positions that will provide technical assistance with implementing agricultural best management practices and will allow conservation district staff to begin ou-

treach efforts to Pennsylvania farms throughout the watershed. Josh Longmore, executive director of the Luzerne Conservation District based on Smiths Pond Road in Jackson Township, said the funding would help pay the salary of Amy Salansky, the district’s agricultural conservation specialist. She will visit farmers with the goal of making sure the farmers are familiar with state requirements for erosion and sediment control and manure management. “These are not regulatory inspections; they’re educational outreach visits,” Longmore said. “We’re not there to bring down the hammer, we’re there to make sure they know the state require-

ments.” DEP Secretary Michael Krancer said in a press release that the funding provides “an excellent opportunity to work with conservation districts to further protect our waterways and our environment.” Since 1972, all Pennsylvania farms have been subject to environmental regulations that specify that farmers must maintain agricultural erosion and sediment control or conservation plans for all cropland and areas heavily used by animals. Farms that handle manure are required to have a manure management plan and use the state’s manure management manual, which provides information on environmentally correct ways to

handle animal waste. The manual includes requirements for winter application of manure and setbacks from streams, drinking water supplies and sink holes. Manure management requirements apply to all farms, not just large farms that are considered concentrated animal feeding operations.

2 Hazleton men charged with homicide will have trials combined By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Two Hazleton men charged with their roles in the stabbing death of one man in a double homicide in Hazleton will be tried together. Assistant District Attorney Richard Hughes made a request to combine the trials of Angel Sanchez, 20, and Rodolfo Hiraldo Perez, 24, charged in the Jan.16 death of 21-yearold Vladimir Ruiz, which was granted by Luzerne County Judge David Lupas. “I can’t think of a case more worthy (of consolidation),” Hughes said, citing both men are charged with the same crimes: criminal homicide, criminal conspiracy to commit homi-

cide, criminal attempt to commit homicide, aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy to commit aggravated assault. Attorney Demetrius Fannick, who represents Sanchez, and Attorney David Lampman, who represents Perez, said Wednesday they did not object. The attorneys said, however, that they may file requests to sever the trials in the future after evidence is gathered. Hughes said there are several surveillance videos of the area where the crimes allegedly occurred, and they will be shared with defense attorneys. A third man, Willis Gonzalez, 21, of Hazleton, is charged with the shooting death of Juda

Hope in the same incident. Gonzalez remains at large, investigators say. According to court papers, Sanchez and Perez were charged with stabbing Ruiz after two different fights. Police said one fight on Jan.15 ended in Sanchez getting the better of Ruiz. The men were charged with disorderly conduct. They then were going to settle the dispute with a handshake or a fair fight without weapons. The men met on Jan.16, and a fight erupted outside of Penn Palace, a tavern on North Wyoming and Green streets in Hazleton, leaving Ruiz and Hope, 23, dead. Police say Hope was shot and killed in the fight by Gonzalez.

W-B Area Board will repair Kistler school rail Board votes to award contract to repair allegedly faulty work to guide rail project. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – After nearly a year of wrangling – and three years after the work was first approved – Wilkes-Barre Area School Board took final steps to repair what it contends is a flawed guide rail project along a walkway outside Kistler Elementary school.

The board voted at Wednesday’s regular meeting to award a contract worth $63,300 to repair what it believes was faulty concrete work by the original contractor, Namey Bognet Inc. Bognet was awarded the contract in January 2008 at a cost of $110,400, though work was delayed until that summer to avoid disruption of classes. But the concrete started flaking shortly after the job was done. The dis-

trict repeatedly tried to get Bognet to repair it at no cost, but the company declined. In September of last year, the board started talking about hiring another company to do the repairs and filing suit against Bognet to recoup the cost. In the meantime, the guide rail itself was damaged by two separate car collisions, Assistant Solicitor Ray Wendolowski said Wednesday. The board approved additional repair work totaling $23,300 for that damage, though Wendolowski said insurance will cover that cost.

The board also voted to eliminate the position of Public/Community Relations, currently held by Debbie Higgins, as part of an ongoing effort to curb costs. Superintendent Jeff Namey said the move would save about $40,000, and that the responsibilities would be taken up by elementary school principals and activities directors in the high schools. And the board hired Jennifer Thiemann as a substitute school psychologist. Namey told the board that the move to bring summer school for secondary

students in-house has worked well. This is the first year the district is trying to handle the classes itself. Previously the service was provided by Luzerne County Community College. The district had 239 students sign up for classes, which they must pay to take. The classes are “credit recovery” work, meaning the students are making up for failed course work during the school year. Namey said students pay $115 per course, and that the program has been so successful so far the district may make a small profit.

He said workers from Bear Creek Township also helped get the road repaired. The work took about eight days to complete, Yudichak said.

Gale Conrad, chairwoman of the township board of supervisors, said the long detour necessitated by the damage to Coal Street made it difficult for deliveries and emergency services. She said getting the road fixed and bridge opened was critical for a lot of residents. Yudichak said township workers will now start repairing Mountain Road, which received considerable damage from the water running down the mountain. Yudichak’s son, state Sen.

COURT BRIEFS

PLAINS TWP. – Township police on Tuesday filed charges against a Plymouth man accused of possessing 18 master keys to vehicles. Police discovered the keys and other contraband inside a backpack that was dropped by Joseph Wesley Evans, 29, when he ran from a vehicle at a used car dealer on U.S. Route 315 on July 2, according to charges filed. Evans is facing 18 counts of possession of master key, and one count each of criminal attempt, criminal conspiracy, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest. The charges were filed with District Judge Diana Malast in Plains Township. Evans has not been arraigned. According to the criminal complaint:

When an officer pulled into the lot, a man identified as Evans wearing latex gloves got out of a Subaru Legacy and ran across Route 315. An officer chased Evans across the highway and was nearly struck by a passing vehicle, the complaint says. Evans escaped capture by running into woods in the area. Police returned to Elite Motors and noticed a screwdriver inside the ignition of a 1997 Jeep, which was traced to Evans, according to the criminal complaint. Police said in the criminal complaint that a backpack Evans dropped contained 18 master keys to vehicles, numerous window punches, screw drivers, latex gloves and an ignition punch. A screw driver and an ignition punch were found inside the Subaru Legacy, police said. Police learned Evans needed parts from a Subaru to repair a relative’s Subaru he wrecked, the criminal complaint says.

WILKES-BARRE – Drug charges against a New York man were dismissed Wednesday at the request of his attorney. Charges including possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver cocaine were dismissed against Jacquil Atkinson, 26, of New York, N.Y. Atkinson was charged in January 2005 with a co-defendant after Kingston police seized several thousands of dollars worth of cocaine after a car was stopped for not using a turn signal and other traffic offenses. Atkinson was scheduled to stand trial on the charges beginning next week. His lawyer, David Lampman, learned from the District Attorney’s Office that police in the case had destroyed evidence, including the drugs and documentation, after a co-defendant pleaded guilty. That, and other circumstances, prompted Lampman to file a motion to dismiss the charges, which was granted Wednesday by Luzerne County Judge Lewis Wetzel

WILKES-BARRE – A Glen Lyon, Newport Township, woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges relating to an incident in which police say they found a 2-year-old boy in a car parked behind a residence in Wilkes-Barre. Sabrina Tomcho, 21, of Rock Street, and also with a listed address of Luzerne Street, Hanover Township, entered the plea before Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley to charges of endangering the welfare of children and a summary charge of driving with a suspended license. Polachek Gartley said Tomcho will be sentenced on Sept. 29. On Jan. 21 police said they saw the boy in the car while conducting an unrelated traffic stop and found Tomcho inside a Monroe Street, Wilkes-Barre, home. Police said the child was outside in the car for at least 26 minutes while the temperature was 23 degrees.

The trial was held before Luzerne County Senior Judge Kenneth Brown. Assistant District Attorney Alexis Falvello prosecuted the case; Lysak was represented by

assault and reckless endangerment. Hogan is represented by attorney Thomas Cometa. Assistant District Attorney Dick Hughes is prosecuting the case. WILKES-BARRE – Attorneys for a man convicted of first-degree murder for a second time have asked a Luzerne County judge to grant an acquittal for their client. Attorneys Brian Corcoran, Shelley Centini and William Watt filed court papers Monday asking that their client, James Strong, be acquitted of first-degree murder because prosecutors engaged in “prosecutorial misconduct” throughout Strong’s May trial. Strong, after being found guilty of firstdegree murder for a second time, was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Thomas Burke on June 29 to life in prison without parole followed by 16 to 40 years in prison on other related charges. Strong, 59, was found guilty by jury of the 1983 murder charge, as well as kidnapping and robbery, on May 27 after a lengthy trial. A Luzerne County jury was then to decide whether Strong would be sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty for the killing in Dorrance Township but could not make a determination. State law required Burke to sentence Strong to life in prison. Strong’s attorneys say prosecutors made statements not permitted by a judge’s ruling throughout the trial, and that they presented evidence that couldn’t be backed up. The attorneys alleged the misconduct was not a legal error, but intentional. “…The commonwealth’s conduct caused prejudice to the defendant which could not be cured by means short of a mistrial,” the attorneys wrote.

WILKES-BARRE – A Nanticoke woman charged in a case where police found a bucket of urine and bathtub of feces during a child welfare investigation in Trucksville was sentenced Wednesday to three years in the county’s Intermediate Punishment Program. Dorothy Breen, 79, was sentenced on charges of endangering the welfare of children and criminal conspiracy by Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello. She pleaded guilty to the charges in April. Augello said the first12 months of Breen’s sentence will be served on house arrest, while the remaining will be served as probation. Breen’s son, 35-year-old Michael View, was also charged and faces three and a half to seven years in prison on related charges.

View was scheduled to be sentenced in June, but failed to appear at the court hearing, and an arrest warrant was issued. According to court papers, on May 14, Kingston Township police conducted a child welfare investigation at View’s Harris Hill Road house at the request of Luzerne County Children & Youth Services. Police said View lived at the residence with his 13-year-old daughter and Breen. A township code enforcement officer condemned the residence as dangerous and unsafe, and unfit for human habitation. The house was vacated and the child was placed in the care of Children & Youth services. According to county records, the residence has over $1,400 in back taxes from the last three years, and will be listed on the Aug. 10 “free-and-clear” sale at the Luzerne County Courthouse.

Suspect in fatality out of prison By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Kingston woman suspected of being the driver of a vehicle that struck and killed a man last month was released from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility Wednesday. Karen McCann, 33, also known as Karen McGill, was released after a hearing on a probation violation before Senior Judge Patrick Toole. Adult probation officers detained McCann on July1after she was cited by Kingston police with driving with a suspended license. According to citations, McCann was stopped for speeding in the area of Pierce Street and First Avenue at about 2:21 a.m. on June 30. Her license had been suspended for one year due to a drunken driving conviction for which she was sentenced in February. Less than 10 hours after being cited for driving with a suspended license and speeding, McCann

is suspected of driving the same vehicle, a Chevrolet Trailblazer, which struck Aloysius McLaughlin, 63, a landscaper working in front of 173 Third Ave. at about 11:50 a.m. on June 30. McLaughlin died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township, police said. Police stopped the vehicle several blocks away on Maple Avenue, where the female driver, identified by sources and court records as McCann, was arrested on suspicion of driving under a controlled substance. McCann was transported to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for a blood test. Police are awaiting results of the blood test to determine if charges will be filed. At Wednesday’s hearing, Toole renewed a one-year license suspension for McCann. She was ordered to report to the adult probation department after she was released from jail.

Live” with 16 and 13 bids each for the sex-and-swords fantasy “Game of Thrones” and the sitcom “30 Rock.” “OK, keep it together,” a surprised nominations co-announcer Melissa McCarthy said when she realized she was a nominee for her sitcom “Mike & Molly.” The controversial miniseries “The Kennedys,” which was dropped by the History channel and given a second chance by the lesser-known ReelzChannel, received 10 nominations, including best miniseries and acting bids for Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy, Barry Pepper as Robert Kennedy and Tom Wilkinson as family patriarch Joe Kennedy. Familiar faces have a chance to claim — or reclaim — Emmys, including last year’s lead comedy actress winner Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie” and Jim Parsons, best actor for a comedy for “The Big Bang Theory.” Both were nominated this year. Jon Hamm received his fourth lead acting bid for “Mad Men,” and this time the competitor who denied him the award three times before isn’t in the category. Bryan Cranston and “Breaking Bad” weren’t eligible for this year’s awards because the series took a break between seasons. Hamm’s new competition includes Steve Buscemi, who received a Golden Globe for his performance as an Atlantic City political boss in “Boardwalk Empire.” Steve Carell earned a best comedy actor nomination for his final season of “The Office,” his last chance to win an Emmy statuette for his role as TV’s most clueless boss. Matt LeBlanc, best known for his role as Joey in “Friends,” received a lead comedy actor bid for playing a screen version of himself in the satiric show business series “Episodes.” And proving that the Betty White phenomenon still has legs: The 89-year-old wonder nabbed a best supporting actress bid for the sitcom “Hot in Clevand.” If she wins, it would be her eighth Emmy. “I am so thrilled. How lucky can an old broad be?” she said by phone a few minutes after her agent woke her with the news. “I wasn’t even thinking about the nominations because I didn’t even think there was a chance.” There were fresh faces as well, including best drama actress nominee Mireille Enos of “The Killing” and best drama actor Timothy Olyphant of “Justified.” Kyra Sedgwick of “The Closer,” last year’s best drama actress winner, found herself closed out of the category this year. Ed O’Neill, who was snubbed last year for “Modern Family,” this year received a supporting actor bid for his role as patriarch in the comedy. Two Oscar winners, Winslet and Melissa Leo, have a chance to score an Emmy for “Mildred Pierce.” Leo, who also appears in the New Orleans drama “Treme,” received a supporting actress bid for the miniseries. Emmy voters have a chance to flaunt their risk-taking side with “Game of Thrones,” given the usual resistance to rewarding genre shows such as fantasy or science fiction. The series based on the George R.R. Martin novels scored a best drama nod but only a single acting bid, for Peter Dinklage in a supporting role. Other best drama contenders besides “Game” and “Mad Men” are “Boardwalk Empire,” “Dexter,” “Friday Night Lights” and “The Good Wife.” “Modern Family” is competing with “The Big Bang Theory,” “Glee,” “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock” for the best comedy crown.

With tearful eyes we watched you suffer And saw you fade away; God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So He put his arms around you and Whispered, come to me. You didn’t deserve what you went through and so He gave you rest. Your memory is a keepsake, With which we’ll never part, God has you in His keeping, We have you in our hearts.

Chairman Lonnie Piatt said Pickarski Construction Company, hired by the county, will wrap up its work on the North Mountain Road bridge in two weeks. “They have to finish up the upper road wing walls,” Piatt said. “This was a pre-cast box bridge.” Then Pickarski Construction will move over to the East Sorber Mountain bridge, he said. Also, B & J Paving, Shavertown, received the contract for small paving projects for 385 feet of Lamoreaux Road, 100 feet of Whitesell Road and 585 feet of Loyalville Road. The company’s bid was $9,800. The other bid received was from Pikes Creek, Sweet Valley, for $39,756. Eileen Godin Stormwater ordinance adopted by Duryea Council DURYEA – Borough council Tuesday night adopted an ordinance to outline the borough’s compliance with the discharge of stormwater. Council also amended an ordinance to increase the number of Recreation Board members to seven from five. Solicitor Donald Frederickson introduced a pawn and secondhand goods dealer ordinance. The ordinance will be finalized next meeting to have any new dealers in Duryea organize items bought to go through the District Attorney’s Office system, which tracks stolen items. The Duryea Police Department is on Facebook with updates and facts for the borough. Councilman Al Akulonis Jr. made a motion to find out the ownership of the alley between lower Marcy and Swetland Street and have the borough incur the $300 charge. Councilman Michael McGlynn seconded the motion. Councilman Frank Groblewski and Council Vice President Joan Orloski were absent, but the majority of the council said no to the motion. “This does not mean the issue is dead,” said council President Audrey Marcinko, concerning last meeting’s discussion of alleyway ownership. Akulonis’s motion stemmed from the open floor work session before the council meeting. The paving of the alley between lower Marcy and Swetland Street was brought up, and the ownership had not been discovered due to cost issues. At the last session, Akulonis claimed the alley was on a 2009 list to be paved. Marcinko told the audience at this month’s open floor session, “There are streets that have to be paved. Alleys come second.” The session erupted into arguments amongst the council members and from the audience.

But it was discussed at the supervisors’ meeting that engineering estimates are that it would cost up to $150,000 to renovate the structure. It was also stated that if Golden fails to act, it could cost the township $25,000 to have it razed. Solicitor Anthony McDonald stated the township would have to file a lien against the property in order to recover its expenses. After discussing their options, the supervisors voted unanimously to have Karchner author a “polite letter” to Golden seeking a resolution. In addition, the supervisors, in order to avoid any other legal ramifications, and to learn if there might be more liens against the property, voted to have a title search undertaken. The supervisors were also informed by Karchner that PPL has plans to install a sanitary sewer extension from the SusVenesky tells Rice Twp. he is quehanna Steam Electric Stacleared of ethics allegations tion along Confer’s Lane to RICE TWP. – Supervisor intersect with the system Salem George Venesky presented a had installed over the past two report from the state Ethics years.

Akulonis said the notes were speculation, and not official. Akulonis and McGlynn requested the special meeting minutes. Marcinko then read the Aug. 22, 2009 special meeting minutes. No specific streets were mentioned. Borough Manager Lois Morreale said the handwritten notes are the only proof. The open session further degenerated, the old argument of whether the paving money was the same or different from the 2009 money resurfaced, and the session had to be called to order, to which Akulonis responded with, “We were going to pave that alley,” and, “You’re just jealous.” Amanda Myrkalo

OUR OPINION: LEND, GET HELP

News on nonprofits deserves airing

E

VEN IN THE best of times, the Wyoming Valley’s nonprofit groups seldom have the extra cash and spare time to spread the word about their good deeds or their pressing needs. They struggle even more so to get out their messages during lean times such as these. A single editorial can’t do the chore of updating you on all their important and praiseworthy activities. But this one strives to provide a compelling sample, in hopes that it connects area residents such as you with charitable organizations that could use a boost this summer, and vice versa. ❏ The Wyoming Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross dispatched its disaster response volunteers earlier this month to Plymouth and other areas hit by localized flash flooding. It continues to assist victims, some of whose homes have been declared uninhabitable. You can donate to this relief effort by visiting http://wyomingvalley.redcross.org or calling (570) 823-7161 ext. 322. Or mail contributions to this address: American Red Cross, 256 N. Sherman St., WilkesBarre, PA 18702. ❏ The Family Service Association of Wyoming Valley recently held its “Answer the Call” fundraising campaign, seeking support for its many community-minded programs, including Help Line. Help Line, accessible at 1888-829-1341, is an information and referral service for Northeastern Pennsylvania residents in need of social services. It also provides crisis intervention. Another popular way to aid Help Line is to participate in

the Pauly Friedman 5K Family Walk/Run. This year’s event is set for Aug. 14 at Misericordia University in Dallas. For details, call 823-5144 or visit www.fsawv.org. ❏ Wyoming Valley Habitat for Humanity is searching for “partner families” who are in need of housing. Successful partners help to build, then live in, Habitat homes – sold at reasonable prices with zero-interest, 20-year mortgages. Potential partners are encouraged to attend an informational session to learn about the application process, including financial criteria. The session will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 23 at Boscov’s department store in Wilkes-Barre. For details, call 820-8002 or visit this website: www.wv-hfh.org. ❏ The region’s nonprofits can apply for free marketing assistance during the 10th annual NEPA CreateAThon – a 24hour, pro bono blast of support from advertising and public relations firms. Applications are due Aug. 1. For information, go to www.nepacat.org. As the leaders of many, Luzerne County-based nonprofit agencies can attest, public funding streams are running low this summer, or running dry. Many private donors, wary of the whether the economic recovery will continue or collapse, have become more cautious about doling out dollars. Unfortunately, hunger, homelessness and other misfortunes don’t take a timeout while organizations, or nations, fix their bottom lines; in fact, those social troubles often intensify. If they could, the Valley’s nonprofit groups would tell you so themselves.

OTHER OPINION: BETTER SCHOOLS

Use reason when rating teachers

P

ENNSYLVANIA lawmakers should take care in considering a bill that would let school districts use students’ test scores to measure teacher performance. The legislation would mandate a statewide change as early as next year. Standardized-test scores would weigh heavily in determining whether teachers keep their jobs, receive tenure or get merit pay. Given the sorry state of education, with students dropping out and flunking at alarming rates, it makes sense to use sterner measures to evaluate teachers, reward the best educators and show the door to those who continually fail to improve. It also makes sense to include test scores as a component of teacher evaluations. After all, the federal No Child Left Behind law makes test scores the basis for its rating of schools, so how well teach-

ers do in preparing students for tests is important. But recent cheating scandals, including allegations of test irregularities at certain Pennsylvania school districts, that have rocked public education around the country show the dangers of placing too much emphasis on standardized testing. In many of these cases, educators faced unrealistic expectations and pressure to meet testing benchmarks. But that’s no excuse for making decisions that cheated schoolchildren out of a real education. They were taught how to pass a test, but little else. Union leaders have not fully embraced the Pennsylvania proposal. Instead, they have rolled out their own reform plan to revamp how teachers are evaluated. The two proposals form a good starting point for discussions leading to the best model. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Cash-strapped districts deliver ‘Budgie-worthy’ plans GOOD MORNING and welcome to the inaugural Luzerne County “Budgie Awards,” our homage to the men and woman who struggled to build public school district budgets from the sawdust left by Gov. Tom Corbett’s lumber mill approach to state education funding. Let’s get right to it. The Early Bird-Avoids-the-Flak Budgie: This goes to Northwest Area School Board, which managed to be the first district to approve a final budget – on June 22 – keeping it out of the public eye when most other districts scrambled to OK their plans during the last week of June. This is an upset. Lake-Lehman looked like a shoo-in for the award. Unlike most districts, Lehman administrators figured right from the start that Corbett wouldn’t increase state spending to cover any of the lost federal stimulus dollars. Lehman was preparing to end programs and restructuring curriculum before most school boards were offering specific cuts. Yet despite the head start, the Black Knights couldn’t muster a final vote until June 25. Best Performance in a Drama Budgie: This contest wasn’t even close. The always affable and usually even-keeled Superintendent Tony Perrone went against type when Greater Nanticoke Area passed its austere $24.3 million budget, cutting

MAIL BAG

MARK GUYDISH COMMENTARY more than $1 million from last year’s spending. “It’s either cut, or next year or the next not have a school,” Perrone warned. “Some of the districts are not going to survive.” Considering that Perrone is widely credited with helping to save GNA from bankruptcy in the 1990s – and that he continues to save the district money by working without a salary years after retiring, something he downplays – other school boards might want to give his warning weight. Best Melodrama Budgie: A competitive field, what with two school boards splitting votes (with one member absent), thus failing to pass a budget on the first try. Wilkes-Barre Area should have been a lock after failing to pass a budget until July 1, one day after the state-mandated deadline. But this one goes to Crestwood. The Mountain Top school board scheduled a vote and canceled it; the union and board bickered over concessions and accused each other of number fudging; and parents sold lemonade to raise money to keep full-day kindergarten … It doesn’t matter who’s side you’re on, this was the

best show since “Dynasty” was canceled. Best Comedy (if we could laugh) Budgie: West Side Career and Technology Center, a sleeper candidate if ever there was one. West Side’s Joint Operating Committee usually passes a budget that is rubber-stamped by the 45 members of five school boards that send students to the center. This year, that budget cut sports, and members of the boards at Lake-Lehman and Wyoming Area rigorously disapproved, preventing the budget from being enacted. The plotline would make the Marx Brothers blush. The center called a meeting of all 45 members; 24 showed up and a couple more joined via phone. When they still couldn’t agree to a budget, some board members started calling absentees to get votes. You could almost here Chico Marx arguing with Groucho in A Night at the Opera about a contract: “You can’t fool me, there ain’t no sanity clause!” And lastly, The Won’t Budgie: To all the teacher unions that refused to negotiate a pay freeze to help districts weather the economic storm. I understand their reluctance and appreciate that many offered alternative savings ideas. But it’s hard to prove they did this “for the kids.” Mark Guydish can be reached at 829-7161 or by email at mguydish@timesleader.com.

H

omosexual activists have scored big in New York. The defeat for marriage there makes passing a constitutional amendment in Pennsylvania – defining marriage as the union of one man to one woman – necessary. The process is getting under way in Harrisburg. In every state where a ballot referendum was offered to voters – 30 states in all, including California – Americans overwhelmingly voted to amend state constitutions to protect traditional marriage. Pennsylvanians will do the same if offered the chance in 2012. Otherwise, Pennsylvania might be the next victim of the well-funded gay rights machine, which labels opposition “bigots” and “homophobes.” Few folks take issue with what consenting adults do privately in bedrooms. What Americans don’t accept is a definition of marriage that’s not marriage. If you look at the moon and call it Jupiter, it’s still the moon. They’re not equal, and identifying the moon as the moon doesn’t make someone a bigot or “lunaphobe.” It’s time to close the door on same-sex marriage. Contact your state legislators

and tell them to move swiftly toward a state constitutional amendment upholding traditional marriage. After abortion, this is the most important moral issue of our time. Ken Skuba Sugarloaf Township

‘People’s Budget’ makes sense to reduce debt

I

n a letter to the president, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wrote: “Everyone understands that over the long-term we have got to reduce the deficit – a deficit that was caused mainly by Wall Street greed, tax breaks for the rich, two wars and a

prescription drug program written by the drug and insurance companies.” House Republicans are holding the world economy hostage so we can afford to continue corporate welfare and tax cuts for the rich. I encourage the president to call their bluff. So should you. Our experience since World War II has been that when taxes on the rich are high, our economy flourishes and the debt decreases. When they are low, our economy struggles and the debt increases. Sen. Sanders and others in Congress have proposed the “budget for the American people.” This budget produces a deficit reduction of $5.6 trillion (spending cuts of $1.7 trillion and a revenue increase of $3.9 trillion) without cuts to the safety net – and a budget surplus in 10 years. The GOP voted not to raise the debt ceiling and for Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget. It’s not clear how that would work. Ryan’s budget would increase the debt by $6 trillion over the next 10 years, while slashing social programs and raising taxes for more than 80 percent of America. An intentional and unnecessary tragedy is unfolding in Washington. Do an Internet search for “The People’s Budget” to read more about it. Wayne Warner Clarks Green

tax increases proposed by one side or the other so far. It appeared attempts to avoid a default were proceeding on two tracks — one involving the negotiators at the White House, and the other, a fallback alternative. One Republican, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that in the talks so far, negotiators had agreed on about $1.5 trillion in deficit cuts, far less than the $2.4 trillion or so needed to meet Obama’s demand that the debt limit go up enough to tide the Treasury over through the 2012 elections. A summary that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor prepared for the talks earlier in the week showed the bulk of cuts coming from day-to-day operating budgets of federal programs. Also included were as much as $245 billion from Medicare, including higher premiums for wealthier beneficiaries, and additional savings from skilled nursing homes and home health care. The summary indicated that federal workers would pay more for their pensions, agriculture subsidies would be cut and food stamp spending would be restrained. The day’s events were shadowed by warnings from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and JPMorgan Chase CEO Jaime Dimon. Speaking separately, the two men admonished bickering lawmakers that failure to avoid an unprecedented default could have a devastating effect on an already anemic U.S. economy.

Adding to the urgency, Moody’s Investor Service has announced it is reviewing America’s bond rating for a possible downgrade, and there was growing concern overseas, too. A Chinese rating agency, Dagong Global Credit Rating Co., also advised of a possible downgrade, and Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said: “We hope that the U.S. government adopts a responsible policy to ensure the interests of the investors.” It was unclear when McConnell and Reid might unveil their legislation, or whether they would first present their ideas to Obama and others involved in the daily meetings at the White

House. McConnell said the plans had not been discussed in depth at Thursday’s White House session, which lasted less than 90 minutes. One option under discussion by the Senate leaders is creation of a group of lawmakers who could recommend spending cuts, possibly including changes in benefit programs, that would be guaranteed a yes-or-no vote in Congress. Another would be to invite the House to add spending cuts to the legislation, to take effect as soon as Obama requested more borrowing authority, including some that have emerged in private talks led first by Vice Presi-

TAXES

FISHER

The revenue from the tax – about $271 million last fiscal year alone – is sent to the state’s General Fund. A bill that will soon be introduced in the State House by Majority Leader Mike Turzai, RBradford Hills, would overhaul the state’s liquor sales system. In addition to privatizing the sale of liquor and wine, it would revamp the tax system and would spell the end for the 30 percent per bottle markup that the LCB charges. “The 30-percent markup of the product allows us to return a profit to the general fund,” said Stacey Witalec, press secretary for the liquor control board. That profit, she said, “supports services and programs that benefit all Pennsylvanians.” In addition to the 30-percent markup, the 18-percent Johnstown Flood Tax and the logistics, transportation, and merchandising factor fee would be eliminated if Turzai’s bill becomes law. That fee offsets just what its name implies – the cost to the LCB of transporting, storing and promoting the products. The fee ranges from 50 cents to $2 a bottle, depending on size. Only the 6 percent sales tax would remain unchanged. The bill also calls for a new “gallonage tax” to ensure revenue neutrality and offset the elimination of the Johnstown Flood Tax. Gallonage taxes are imposed in 26 other states for spirits and 35 other states for wine. The tax rates would range from $8.25 to $12 per gallon based on type of liquor and alcohol content. This tax would be indexed to an inflation rate after the first five years.

Robert Fisher said. The police searched Andre, found $14 in his pocket and gave it to the cab driver, his father said. Despite the lack of physical evidence and a grainy surveillance video from inside the taxi that showed a tall, slender, hooded male reaching inside the cab when Andre is tall but well-built, a South Korean judge found Andre guilty of the crime and sentenced him to two years in prison. Andre’s mom, Sandra Fisher, said her son refused to plead guilty, against his South Korean lawyer’s advice. “He was under the impression nothing was going to happen to him because he didn’t do anything wrong,” Sandra Fisher said. She noted that Andre was not permitted to call witnesses in his own defense at the trial, which appears to be a violation of the Status of Force Agreement between the United States and South Korea, which is formally called the Republic of Korea. A status of force agreement, or SOFA, is an agreement between a host country and a foreign nation stationing forces in that country. A SOFA establishes the rights and privileges of foreign personnel present in the host country. Andre’s parents say that the U.S. Army has done little to nothing to help one of their own, other than provide MREs (meals ready to eat) for their son while he’s in prison, and they hardly sustain the 6-foot, 5-inch athlete. His family is confident that Andre, who played tight end with

the Hazleton Area Cougars before he graduated in 2007 and then for a year at Kutztown University, was raised with strong values and would never steal. The Fishers adopted Andre when he was 7 after their daughter, Jill Zapotocky, got to know him while doing an internship with Northeast Counseling and pleaded with her parents to take him in. “I just saw such love in him,” Jill said of her brother. “He’s the type of person you would literally want to go into battle with.” The Fisher family felt that they were getting nowhere with calls to the Army command, so a close friend of Andre’s, Brittany Gresh, asked to let her contact the media to bring Andre’s situation to light. Gresh, 20, of Danville, has been friends with Andre since she was 6 or 7 years old. She learned about his arrest and conviction from posts on his Facebook page. “I was absolutely shocked,” Gresh said. She contacted the U.S. Embassy and U.S. Consulate, but representatives told her it wasn’t their jurisdiction because Andre is in the military. She then contacted local television news stations to bring Andre’s plight out in the public eye. “He’s in the military and the government is not doing anything and it’s not something they should be getting away with,” Gresh said. When Michael Keslosky first heard of Andre’s situation, he contacted the Fisher family. Kesloski, a veterans’ advocate and a veteran of the Vietnam era and Operation Iraqi Freedom, said he

CHEATING Continued from Page 1A

On Thursday, Antonelli said the state Department of Education promised to provide the district with data used in the report by today. The district will scrutinize the details down to student and classroom levels to see if there was cheating, or if the aberrations can be explained by district efforts to boost the scores, as required by federal law. Pressure to succeed Pressure is high to succeed on the math and reading tests. The federal law known as No Child Left Behind requires that the percentage of students scoring proficient or better increase steadily until reaching 100 percent by 2014. In 2009 – the year the report analyzed – the goals were 56 percent in math and 63 percent in reading. This year the goals are 67 percent and 72 percent respectively. The more consecutive years a school misses annual percentage goals, the more

dent Joe Biden, and now by Obama. The seriousness of the situation was underscored throughout the day. Testifying before a Senate panel, Bernanke said a default would deal a “self-inflicted wound” to the nation’s economy, driving up interest rates and slowing recovery from the deep recession. Dimon, speaking to reporters in New York, said default could prove catastrophic. “Why take that chance? I wouldn’t take that chance,” he said, answering his own rhetorical question. Obama met with congressional leaders at the White House for a fifth straight day, although White House press secretary Jay

Carney cautioned not to expect a “hallelujah moment” when it was over. Talks have been stymied by a dispute over tax increases as part of any deal to cut future deficits. Obama and Democrats want them, while Republicans don’t. The concept under discussion by the Senate leaders is a more elaborate version of a plan McConnell suggested earlier in the week to a less-than-enthusiastic reception from conservatives. In his first substantive remarks on McConnell’s initial suggestion, Speaker John Boehner told reporters, “What may look like something less than optimal today, if we’re unable to get an agreement might look pretty good a few weeks from now.” Carney said if there was no progress toward a bipartisan agreement on cuts by Friday, “then we have to begin looking at making sure that we fulfill our obligations to uphold the credit rating of the United States.” He did not elaborate. Whatever choice was made, it was clear time was running out. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner met privately at the Capitol with Senate Democrats, emerging to say: “We have no way to give Congress more time to solve this problem.” So the alarms covered a broad front: Geithner is a senior official in the Obama administration, Bernanke is the nation’s central banker and Dimon the head of one of Wall Street’s best-known firms. Similar warnings have been directed at lawmakers repeatedly since Geithner announced that Aug. 2 was essentially the day of reckoning. The Treasury has been relying on unusual mea-

sures since early May to avoid breaching the current debt ceiling, which stands at $14.3 trillion. Congress and the White House have responded to the warnings with a spate of highprofile meetings — but little if any apparent progress toward a solution. Boehner also took steps during the day to present a common front with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, his second-incommand, who has seemed at times to take a dominant role in the White House talks. Reid criticized Cantor in unusually personal remarks on the Senate floor, saying he “has shown he shouldn’t be at the table.” “And Republicans agree he shouldn’t be at the table,” he added, referring to published accounts of other GOP lawmakers criticizing Cantor anonymously. Cantor brushed aside the criticism, and Boehner came to his defense at a news conference. “We have been in this fight together,” he said, placing his arm around Cantor’s shoulder, adding that any report that the Virginian has been “anything less than helpful is just wrong. ... We’re in the foxhole.” Cantor and other members of the party leadership balked several days ago when Boehner privately shared details of a possible sweeping deal with Obama that could have meant higher taxes. The speaker announced he would no longer pursue the plan. Apart from his role in the White House talks, Cantor staged a high-profile walkout from an earlier set of negotiations led by Biden, irritating some Democrats who noted the talks were near an end anyway.

considers Andre a brother. Kesloski has been acting as a liaison with the Army, Judge Advocate General attorneys and elected officials for the Fishers. He said he’s appalled that the Army didn’t even request to obtain jurisdiction of the case, especially because the alleged crime would be considered minor, given that no weapon was involved. Kesloski also took issue with alleged violations of the SOFA such as Andre not being allowed to call defense witnesses and not having military representation present during his questioning and at the trial. Representatives from the offices of U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, DScranton, and U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said they have been in contact with the Fisher family and are looking into the matter. Emails sent to a U.S. Army representative to whom a reporter was referred by the Army press

severe the potential consequences, with a state takeover looming as the big stick. Hazleton Area will finish its investigation and report to the state within 30 days after receiving the data, Antonelli said. State Secretary of Education Ronald Tomalis added urgency Thursday by requiring all districts implicated in the 2009 report to conduct an internal study, setting the 30day deadline. Regionally, along with Hazleton Area, schools were flagged in the Scranton, Abington Heights and Berwick school districts. Antonelli said the district takes the investigation very seriously, but also said it’s hard to see where any widespread cheating could have occurred unnoticed. The tests come sealed and are kept under tight security until they are administered, he said, so it’s almost impossible for a teacher or student to get an advance peek at the test in order to prepare for it. There is no universal answer source because tests are returned to the state for grading. So a teacher or administrator can’t simply correct tests using a handy sheet.

Kesloski, Gresh, Zapotocky and the Fishers all expressed hope that the public will contact the U.S. Army and their elected officials and ask that they push the government and the military to intercede on Andre’s behalf. A candlelight vigil is planned for Andre at 8 p.m. on July 30 at

They would have to go through the test booklets, deduce the correct answers, and make the corrections. Even if someone tried to do that, there are different versions of the tests, randomly handed out within each classroom. Anyone trying to correct errors would have to keep tabs on which student had which test. And they wouldn’t have much time; the tests and booklets are secured in a guidance office at the end of a testing session. Other safeguards There are two other safeguards: The state sends observers into classrooms during testing unannounced. And, Antonelli argues, in a district with more than 10,000 students, it seems hard to believe widespread cheating could go undetected. Nonetheless, cheating can’t be ruled out, Antonelli said. But a possible explanation has already been discovered, Antonelli said. Important data the district sends annually to the state was lost for a short time without explanation. “We had an issue in the 2008-09 school

Memorial Park in Hazleton. Kesloski said he hopes military supporters will organize similar vigils on Public Square in WilkesBarre and Courthouse Square in Scranton for the same date and time. “The only thing I can think of worse than this is losing your child,” Robert Fisher said. “We just want him out of there.”

year where our entire file on economically disadvantaged students, which is several thousand students, was sent electronically to Harrisburg,” Antonelli said. “Harrisburg said they never received it. We did a resubmission, but we believe this report was compiled without that data. That would make a big difference because the test proficiency goals must not only be met by all students, but must be met by several subgroups of students who traditionally do poorly in standardized tests. One of those subgroups is economically disadvantaged students – those from low-income families. And one of the factors the 2009 report looked for was sharp changes in the number of students taking a test in each subgroup. If the company that conducted the study compared district data from 2007-08 with faulty data from 2008-09, “it would have looked as if our percent of economically disadvantaged students took a dramatic decline,” Antonelli said, which apparently would trigger a “flag” in the statistical analysis.

The luck of the Irish? New Wilkes-Barre/Scranton lacrosse team will be called the Shamrocks.

By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

PLAINS – The newest professional sports francise in Northeastern Pennsylvania will pay homage to the area’s Irish-American heritage. The previously unnamed indoor lacrosse team will go by the moniker Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Shamrocks, team officials announced Thursday at a press conference. The Shamrocks’ logo – a clover-riddled shield bearing Ireland’s national

colors – was also unveiled at a press conference at the Woodlands Inn & Resort. “We have a very strong Irish-American heritage in this area,” said Shamrocks president and owner Jim Jennings. “We could not have picked a more appropriate name.” The Shamrocks begin play in the North American Lacrosse League in January 2012 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. Owners chose the Shamrocks moniker over the Haymakers and Bullies. Team officials liked the nickname in the early stages of the organization’s development and reached out to local

college marketing classes and focus groups for their input. “Everyone seemed to love the name,” said Jennings. “We didn’t get any negative feedback on it. We looked at some other names but this one kept on coming back to us.” Jennings stated that the inspiration for the team’s logo drew from the simpler designs of Major League Soccer teams, specifically the Philadelphia Union. The team’s shield design is “based PETE G. WILCOX on a modified version of the shield of arm from Ireland,” said the logo’s cre- Luzerne County Commissioners Maryanne Petrilla and Thomas Cooney unveil the logo of NEPA’s new professional lacrosse team the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Shamrocks.

Prosecution strikes out vs. Clemens Display of inadmissible evidence causes judge to call a quick mistrial. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Almost as soon as it began, former baseball star Roger Clemens’ perjury trial ended Thursday — in a mistrial the judge blamed on prosecutors and said a “first-year law student” would have known to avoid. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton left the question of a new trial up in the air. But he called a halt to the trial under way after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that he had ruled out — videotaped revelations that a teammate had said he’d told his wife Clemens confessed to using a drug. Walton scolded prosecutors and said he couldn’t let the former All-Star pitcher face prison if convicted on such “extremely prejudicial” evidence. “Mr. Clemens has to get a fair trial,” Walton said. “In my view, he can’t get it now.” Defense attorney Rusty Hardin, who had asked for the mistrial declaration, patSee CLEMENS, Page 6B

Opposites Bjorn, Lewis are sharing the Open lead

By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SANDWICH, England — Thomas Bjorn and Tom Lewis have nothing in common except for the unlikely position they shared Thursday atop the leaderboard at the British Open. It’s not just that one is twice as old. Or that Bjorn is a 40-year-old pro who wonders how much longer he can compete at the highest level, while Lewis is an amateur making his major championship debut, his best golf still to come. The biggest difference are their memories of Royal St. George’s. Bjorn took a small step toward atonement with a birdie on the par-3 16th —

“When I hit the shot, I thought, ‘This is going to struggle.’ So when it just made it over that bunker, that was just a smile of knowing that things were going my way today,” Bjorn said. Lewis ran off four straight birdies late in his round, an amazing stretch that began on the par-5 14th. That’s the hole where Lewis wrapped up the British Boys Amateur Championship two years ago, the highlight of a sterling amateur record. A par on the final hole gave him a 65, the lowest ever by an amateur in the British Open, making him the first amateur to lead this championship in 43 years.

NEW YORK — With time running short to keep the NFL’s preseason intact, owners and players got into another long round of labor talks Thursday, trying to break the impasse that has kept the league shut down for four months. Each group turned out in force for the latest negotiations at a Manhattan law firm, and for the second straight day discussions stretched into the evening. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and eight of the 10 members of the owners’ labor committee were present, including Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys and John Mara of the New York Giants. Two new participants Thursday were Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy and San Diego Chargers owner Dean Spanos.

Arch Madness has already had an amazing season and tonight his journey takes him to the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. The sevenyear old Balanced Image gelding has been nothing short of sensational in his 2011 campaign, winning in seven of his eight starts. His most recent start back on July 2, at the Meadowlands, was perhaps his finest effort yet in the $220,075 Titan Cup Final. Leaving from post six, the Trond Smedshammer trained multi-millionaire made a speed brush just past the half mile marker and never looked back, crushing an outstanding group of Free-For-All Trotters by eight open lengths in world record mile of1:50.2. I certainly don’t see anyone even remotely close to him anywhere in the country right now, so sit back and enjoy what promises to be an exciting show in this evening’s tenth race feature.

Canzler’s early clout provides the only scoring Hazleton native went 1-for-4, but his early three-run homer was enough for IL to win it. By JASON FRANCHUK For The Times Leader

SALT LAKE CITY — Russ Canzler’s hits grew progressively less valuable as Wednesday night continued. Good thing for him that his first one went so far at the Triple-A All-Star Game. Not just for him, really — anybody that wanted to see scoring. The Durham Bull, a Hazleton resident, smoked a 370-foot home run in the second inning that served as the production point for the only three runs of the game, an International League triumph at Spring Mobile Ballpark against the “home”

Pacific League. Canzler, 25 years old and in his first season just a level shy of the major leagues, earned MVP Russ Canzler honors a couple of hours after he took a firstpitch ball then hammered the second to right-center field. The .290 hitter with 10 home runs and 53 RBI before the break found himself hitting in the No. 8 spot. “It was a great pitch to hit, with runners on base it was in up in the zone over the middle of the plate,” Canzler said. “I thought it was out when I hit it, to be honest.” He finished 1-for-4 in a game with just nine hits total in the capital city of Utah, which had

MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Big first inning lifts Blue Jays The Associated Press

TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion and Eric Thames had three hits and three RBIs each and the Toronto Blue Jays used an eight-run first inning to beat the New York Yankees 16-7 on Thursday night. The Blue Jays set season highs in runs and hits (20) to win their fourth straight game. Toronto lost slugger Jose Bautista to a twisted right ankle in the fourth inning. Bautista, who leads the majors with 31 home runs, limped off after an awkward slide into third base. He is day-to-day. Andruw Jones hit two home runs for the Yankees, the 42nd multihomer game of his career, but the Yankees couldn’t extend a nine-year streak of winning their first game following the All-Star break. Left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes (5-7) allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 5 1-3 innings. He walked one and struck out two. The Blue Jays knocked Yankees right-hander Bartolo Colon out of the game before the first inning was finished, doing all their damage with two outs. Yunel Escobar led off with a grounder but Thames doubled, Bautista walked and both runners moved up on Adam Lind’s grounder to first before Aaron Hill drove in both runners with a single to center. Encarnacion walked and Travis Snider hit an RBI single before J.P. Arencibia reached on a fielding error by third baseman Eduardo Nunez. Rajai Davis and Escobar followed with infield singles, making it 4-0, before Thames chased Colon with a two-run double to center. Colon (6-5) lost consecutive starts for the first time this season, allowing eight runs, three earned, and six hits in 2-3 of an inning, his shortest start of the year. Colon walked two and struck out none. Luis Ayala came on and balked in an eighth run before getting Bautista to pop out. The eight first-inning runs matched a franchise-high for the Blue Jays, who also scored eight in the first inning on Sept. 26, 2007, at Baltimore. Thames became the first Blue Jay to get two hits in an inning since Snider doubled twice in the fifth inning of an 8-6 win at Yankee Stadium on Aug. 2, 2010. Toronto made it 9-0 on Encarnacion’s RBI single in the second before the Yankees rallied with a four-run third against Reyes. Jones led off with a homer to left, Curtis Granderson hit a two-run triple that bounced over Thames’ head in right and Mark Teixeira followed with an RBI grounder. The Yankees cut it to 9-7 and chased Reyes with a three-run

sixth. Nick Swisher and Russell Martin led off with singles before Jones clubbed a threerun drive into the second deck in left, his sixth. Reyes left two batters later after Brett Gardner singled. Encarnacion gave the Blue Jays some breathing room with a two-run, two-out single off Boone Logan in the bottom half, and Toronto added two more against Logan and Sergio Mitre in the seventh. Snider singled, stole second and went to third on Martin’s throwing error before scoring on Arencibia’s double, and Thames capped it with an RBI single to center. The Blue Jays tacked on three more in the eighth against Mitre. Snider hit an RBI double, Encarnacion scored on shortstop Derek Jeter’s fielding error and Davis drove in a run with a fielder’s choice grounder. Indians 8, Orioles 4

BALTIMORE — Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana homered, Justin Masterson struck out eight in six innings, and the Cleveland Indians beat Baltimore to extend the Orioles’ losing streak to eight games. The victory moved the Indians into first place in the AL Central, percentage points ahead of idle Detroit. Cleveland lost three straight before the All-Star break to fall out of first for the first time since June 28. Cabrera and Santana connected in a three-run first inning against Jeremy Guthrie (3-13), giving the Indians the lead for good. Cleveland is 4-0 against Baltimore this season, outscoring the Orioles 28-11. Masterson (8-6) gave up four runs and eight hits, improving to 3-0 in his last three starts. Twins 8, Royals 4

MINNEAPOLIS — Trevor Plouffe hit a two-run homer and Delmon Young had three hits in his return to the lineup to lead the Minnesota Twins to a victory over the Kansas City Royals. Francisco Liriano (6-7) gave up three runs — one earned — on seven hits with four strikeouts in seven innings and Joe Mauer had two hits and two RBIs for the Twins. Marlins 6, Cubs 3

CHICAGO — Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs delivered a two-run double against closer Carlos Marmol, and the Florida Marlins scored six times in the ninth inning to rally for a 6-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night that extended their season-high winning streak to six games. The Marlins trailed 2-0 before sending 11 batters to the plate in their final at-bat while pulling out a dramatic victory.

12,439 fans probably expecting more offense because that’s common around here — on account of the altitude. Canzler’s shot came off Las Vegas lefthander Brad Mills who was 7-7 with a 3.97 earned run average — and had given up 13 home runs. The other three hurlers Canzler faced had better luck. He hit a grounder to second base in the fourth and a hard shot back at the pitcher in the seventh, both for outs. Perhaps the only disappointment for Canzler in his return West (he played in Arizona and Idaho for the Chicago Cubs organization at lower levels) was that his hope to show off his versatility in the field was never possible. He played nine innings at third base for the first time in

about a month, and never fielded a ball. He’s mostly been used in the outfield in North Carolina during his first season with the Tampa Bay farm system following free agency. “I tried to keep that a secret,” Canzler said, smiling with the Columbus manager sitting to his left. “I didn’t want to scare anyone. That’s just the way the game goes sometimes. There are other games when it feels like every ball is coming hard at you. But it was just an honor to be here and have a chance to play.” Canzler’s less magnificent hits were right in line with the game, where opportunities to score were few and far between. There were 10 strikeouts and four double plays total. The Pacific League, which mustered just three hits, left the

bases loaded in the seventh, keeping alive Canzler’s likelihood at being the hero. His International League pals stranded runners at the corners in the eighth. Canzler’s last plate appearance came in the ninth, when he faced another lefty — this time with runners on first and second with no outs. He quickly hit into a double play started by a soft grounder to the shortstop. Meanwhile, Adam Warren was dominant in his first trip to Utah. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre righty pitched two innings, allowing just two baserunners in the third and fourth. One hitter reached by single, the other from an error at shortstop. He was eager to test out all of those horror stories he heard about pitching at higher eleva-

tions. Columbus manager Mike Sarbaugh praised his impromptu staff for sticking to its guns and forcing a lot of ground balls. Warren, who entered with a 6-3 record and 3.20 earned run average, was a late replacement because of some International League roster changes that included some scratched Scranton/Wilkes-Barre teammates. “This was my first all-star game ever, and I was a little nervous at the start,” Canzler said. “But I wanted to come out aggressive. You’d rather do that in these situations and not try to feel the game out.” He said it with a smile, and an extra messy grey jersey. An IL teammate hit him with a shaving-cream pie in the face for his big hit, a nice souvenir from three days in Utah.

Furbush is more super than Nova By JOHN WAGNER For The Times Leader

TOLEDO, Ohio -- Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre starter Ivan Nova was good last night. Unfortunately for him and the Yankees, Toledo starter Charlie Furbush was better. In a battle of two pitchers who were demoted from the major leagues recently, Furbush out dueled Nova in pitching the Mud Hens to a 4-2 victory at Fifth Third Field. Nova, making just his second start for Scranton/WilkesBarre after his demotion from New York on July 3, allowed seven hits and three runs in seven innings, walking one and striking out five. But Furbush gave up just five hits and a pair of runs in 6 2/3 innings walking one and fanning six to hand the Yankees a loss in their first game following the all-star break. “I thought Nova threw well,” Scranton/Wilkes-Barre manager Dave Miley said. “He wasn’t quite as sharp as his first start [against Buffalo on July 7], but he gave us a chance to win. “That’s all you can ask for from your starter.” Nova struggled in the first inning, giving up a bloop single to Jeff Salazar – who was erased on a double-play – and then walking Carlos Guillen on a borderline 3-2 pitch. That walk hurt when the next batter, Ryan Strieby, slammed a 1-1 pitch from Nova over the fence in left-center for his 13th home run of the season. “I thought we caught a tough break there because I thought we had Guillen struck out,” Miley said. “We didn’t get the call, but regardless of how that plays out, you’ve got to score runs. “I thought their guy [Furbush] threw the ball well. We needed to make some adjustments against a tough pitcher like that, and when you don’t do that you’ll strike out 11 times. We had some opportunities; we just didn’t cash in.” One of those opportunities came in the second, when Brandon Laird singled with one out and then raced to third on a double by Gustavo Molina. A groundout by Luis Nunez scored Laird, but Molina was left stranded on a groundout by Doug Bernier. Those two outs started a string where Toledo’s Furbush, who was optioned to the Mud Hens just before the All-Star break, retired 14 of 15 hitters he faced. “One difference that I saw in [Furbush] since he was [in the majors] was that he threw all of his pitches for strikes,” Toledo manager Phil Nevin said. “And that makes his fastball more effective.”

McDowell recovers, stays in contention By STEVE DOUGLAS AP Sports Writer

SANDWICH, England (AP) — A pick-me-up from his caddie and a favorable change in weather helped Graeme McDowell remain in the hunt at the British Open after a horror start to his first round. The 2010 U.S. Open champion was reeling after making a double-bogey 6 at the first hole at Royal St. George’s on Thursday, soon followed by another dropped shot at No. 5. Weeks of preparation were threatening to be undone there and then. Thank goodness, then, for caddie Ken Comboy. “I’ve got to thank him for keeping me in the moment because my head was spinning after a few holes,” McDowell said. “That’s what this course and what major championships can do to you. Maybe four or five years ago, I wouldn’t have been able to turn that round.” McDowell, ranked No. 9, managed to

recover his poise, and four birdies in a back nine played in benign, still conditions saw the Northern Irishman come home at 2-under 68. He is tied for sixth, three shots off the lead, and clear of many of his chief rivals for the claret jug. “The old cliche (in the first round) is, ’You can’t win it, you can only lose it.’ I tried to lose it but I managed to hang in there. I’m in a great position,” he said. With Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy — three of the world’s top four — all shooting opening-round 71s, McDowell finds himself in solid position. It could have been so different. “I just got off to a horrible start. Three days’ perfect preparation, nice warmup, walk onto the first tee and just put one of my worst swings of the week on it,” he said. “My second shot, all I could do was just hit it over the back and I pulled a horrible lie. “I make double and walk to the sec-

ond tee wondering what the hell just happened.” After his win at Pebble Beach and his Ryder Cup exploits at Celtic Manor last year when he holed the winning putt for Europe, McDowell is made of sterner stuff these days. “Perseverance, staying in the present and just believing in myself,” he said. “Patience is what you need, especially in links golf.” With the wind dying down to leave Royal St. George’s defenseless in the late afternoon, McDowell birdied Nos. 12 and 13, as well as the final two holes. He could also be fortunate with the weather on Friday, with the forecast predicting a calm morning when McDowell tees off before conditions worsen. “You’ve just got to count yourself lucky when it happens because luck evens itself out over a year. It really is about jockeying for position the next couple of days,” he said.

“It was a special moment for me, winning here, and to come back to where you’ve won is extra special,” Lewis said. “I was just thrilled to be here, but to shoot 65 the first round was something I wouldn’t have thought. I was just happy to get the drive off the tee at the first, and that was all that mattered.” Adding to the nerves was playing alongside Tom Watson, such a popular figure in the Lewis household that they named their oldest son after the fivetime Open champion. And to think the kid only wanted to make sure he didn’t embarrass himself in front of Watson. “He could be my grandson,” Watson said. “I just had to smile

SANDWICH, England — A glance at the first round of the British Open: Leading: Thomas Bjorn and Tom Lewis, who both shot opening 65s. Just behind: Three other players, including former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover. Amateur star: Lewis, a 20-year-old from Welwyn, England, is the first amateur in any major to have the lead since Mike Reid led the U.S. Open after the first round in 1976. Rory’s day: For the first time in nearly a year, Rory McIlroy didn’t have the lead in the early stages of a major. McIlroy shot a 1-over 71 and is six shots back. Easy day: A total of 35 players broke par on the normally tough Royal St. George’s layout, while another 15 matched par 70. The field average was 71.9. Forecast: Dry, with winds increasing as the day goes on to 20-25 mph in the afternoon. Noteable: Bjorn, who only got in the field after Vijay Singh withdrew, blew a two-shot lead with three holes to go to lose to Ben Curtis in 2003, the last time the British Open was played at Royal St. George’s. Quoteable: “I’ve got a long way in my career and hopefully I can produce good golf, and if not, then they’re still poor.” — Lewis talking about the sacrifices his parents made to further his golf career.

Rugged start, solid finish for Rory By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SANDWICH, England — For the first time in 11 months, Rory McIlroy walked off the 18th green in the early stages of a major championship and did not see his name atop the leaderboard. That’s how good he has been at golf’s biggest events. And the way he rallied from a rugged start Thursday in the British Open, McIlroy didn’t think his 1-over 71 was all that bad. “Anywhere around even par was a good start,” McIlroy said. Facing enormous attention coming off his wire-to-wire win at the U.S. Open last month, McIlroy made a few key putts in the middle of his round to steady himself against a stiff breeze at Royal St. George’s. He was six shots behind Thomas Bjorn, who played extraordinary golf in the tougher morning conditions of wind and some rain, and English amateur Tom Lewis, who took advantage of better conditions in the afternoon. Trailing by any margin can only be considered a strange spot for McIlroy based on his recent, amazing history. He has been in the lead after seven of the last eight rounds in the majors, the exception being the 80 he shot in the final round at the Masters to lose a four-shot lead. This day was different. And if the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland didn’t know it, then he conditions and had a bogey-free 66. He was joined later in the round by former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover and Webb Simpson. A dozen players were at 68, a group that two major champions from last year — PGA winner Martin Kaymer and U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, who was 3 over through five holes until a ferocious rally. It was vintage links golf along the Strait of Dover, where the seaside wind can be as fickle as the bounces on rolling turf of Royal St. George’s. Flags that were crackling throughout the morning when Bjorn and Jimenez faced cold conditions and a spot of rain were only rippling when Lewis teed off in the afternoon, and they were drooping when the round ended. The change was reflected in the scores.

at least heard it. The media has been building him up as golf’s next star after his record-setting performance at Congressional. And when he stepped on the first tee with a freshening wind off the Strait of Dover, the cheers resounded the length of the 444-yard opening hole. “It was great,” he said. “I probably didn’t take it in as much as I could have. I was just trying to concentrate on that first tee shot and get that out of the way. But it’s nice to have that support out on the golf course. It’s fantastic. Hopefully, I can give them something to shout about.” It took awhile in the opening round. The biggest cheer came for 22-year-old Rickie Fowler, who holed a 75-foot putt from just off the back of the first green. McIlroy also went long, just a few inches in from of Fowler, and he rammed his long putt some eight feet past the hole and wound up three-putting for bogey. Then came the par-3 third, where McIlroy got one of the wild, hard hops so often seen at Royal St. George’s and wound up in rough behind the green. The chip came out heavy, leading to another bogey. And his next tee shot went into deep grass in front of a large knoll. Suddenly, this didn’t look like the U.S. Open champion. It looked like the kid who shot 80 the last day at Augusta Nation-

Rory McIlroy, coming off an eight-shot victory in the U.S. Open that made the 22-year-old the centerpiece of this major, rallied from a sloppy start for a 1-over 71, and he had no complaints. “Anywhere around even par is a good start,” McIlroy said. It didn’t feel that way toward the end of a long day. The morning half of the draw were a combined 223-over par. The afternoon half combined to go only 94-over par. There were a dozen rounds in the 60s in the morning, and 23 in the afternoon. “Looks like the wind gods are having an afternoon tea?” came a tweet from John Daly, who was proud of his 72 in the morning. The calmer conditions are expected for Friday morning when Lewis goes out for his second

al. McIlroy powered a short iron out and onto the green, hit a superb chip from well left of the green at No. 5 to five feet to save par, and before long was back in his comfort zone. It helped being paired with Fowler, an American of the same age, same style of play — they both waste no time hitting their shots — and with a history of playing together despite being so young. McIlroy and Fowler competed against each other in foursomes at the Walker Cup four years ago when both were teenagers at Royal County Down. That was a home game for McIlroy, and this was not much different. “The fans were great over here,” Fowler said. “Obviously, they’re cheering on Rory. It has a feeling like he’s a hero over here now. He’s had a pretty big impact, with impressive play recently and obviously at the U.S. Open. So it’s fun to play alongside him. I’ve always enjoyed it, and definitely felt like the crowd was in his favor today.” Fowler looked to be the better of the two on this day, but not so much at the end. Fowler stalled in his round of 70. McIlroy rallied for a 71, starting with a smart approach on the eighth hole that rode up a ridge and trickled back toward the hole to four feet away for birdie. Equally important was the short, tricky par putt on the ninth.

round, with the wind shifting and becoming more fierce in the afternoon. That figures to only help Lewis, Glover and those who got the late-early portion of the tee times. Lewis figures he has other advantages. He has been around golf all of his life — his father once played the European Tour — and he really feels at home on links courses. The Royal & Ancients tends to play its championships for amateurs on the seaside courses, and Lewis has played only links this summer except for one tournament. “We’re used to the wind,” Lewis said. “Watching it on the TV this morning, I didn’t think scores would be as low as they are. But the wind dropped, and that was the opportunity to shoot a good score. And I’m thankful I did play well.”

Spain’s Sanchez speeds to win Basque-based rider wins, but fellow Spanaird Contrador loses time to contenders. By JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press

LUZ-ARDIDEN, France — Spain’s Samuel Sanchez thrilled fans of his Basque-based team with the stage win Thursday and France’s Thomas Voeckler surprised himself by keeping the yellow jersey on Bastille Day as the Tour de France finally hit the mountains. Defending champion Alberto Contador ran into more, if modest, trouble in the 12th stage by losing ground to other race favorites on the day’s final climb in the Pyrenees. The 131-mile run from Cugnaux to the Luz-Ardiden ski station featured three tough ascents — including two that are among the hardest in pro cycling.

After 11 stages on wind-swept flats and hills that favored sprinters and breakaway riders, Thursday’s mountains began to separate the overall race contenders from the rest of the pack. The day’s toughest climbs — the Col du Tourmalet and the uphill finish in Luz-Ardiden — gave the favorites a chance to gauge each other’s stamina and look for signs of weakness. Sanchez and Jelle Vanendert of Belgium overtook a group of breakaway riders in the final climb and the Spaniard then won their two-man sprint in the last several hundred yards, crossing 7 seconds in front of Vanendert. “It’s incredible,” Sanchez said of his first Tour stage victory. The Euskaltel-Euskadi rider, who finished fourth overall last year, said he got extra inspiration from spectators waving the red, green and white flag of the Basque country — a nearby region along the border between France and

Spain. “I can’t believe I won this in front of all our fans,” he said. Frank Schleck of Luxembourg made a string of attacks on other prerace favorites before surging away to finish third — 10 seconds back — and vault into second place overall. Italy’s Ivan Basso was fourth, Australia’s Cadel Evans was fifth, and Schleck’s younger brother Andy was sixth, each 30 seconds behind Sanchez. Contador placed eighth, 43 seconds back. Voeckler gave the home crowd a delight on France’s national holiday, clinging to the yellow jersey that he expected to lose in the punishing climbs. “I’m glad I was wrong,” Voeckler said. “It clearly wasn’t expected. Keeping the jersey was far from expected as the stage started today. “You have to believe that the yellow jersey gives you a bit of added inspiration on the Bastille

Day.” Voeckler leads Frank Schleck by 1 minute, 49 seconds overall, and Evans is third, 2:06 back. Contador is seventh overall, 4 minutes behind. “I was a bit careful,” the threetime Tour champion said. “I saw the Schlecks were discussing together and that they were going to play their cards. Frank was the stronger — and both of them attacked. “But I’m nevertheless happy with this first mountain stage. Each day, I feel better ... I still don’t have my best legs. I’m not riding with the same rhythm, but it’s encouraging.” Andy Schleck, the Leopard Trek team leader who was runner-up to Contador last year and in 2009, said he and his brother gave the Spaniard a preview of AP PHOTO what’s to come. A few crashes marred the ride, Samuel Sanchez of Spain crosses the finish line to win the 12th including some on a harrowing stage of the Tour de France cycling race over 131.1 miles, starting in Cugnaux and finishing in Luz Ardiden, France. downhill.

ator Chris Lochinski, of Lock Designs in Columbus, Ohio. In the crest, the shamrock design is morphed into a lacrosse stick on the top clover leaf. “We wanted something that’s a little progressive,” said Jennings. “We didn’t want a cartoon character. We wanted to get away from that.” A uniform design will not be unveiled until after the league signs a jersey deal. The popularity of Scranton’s

St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the strong Irish culture in the area was a determining factor in choosing the Shamrock name. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is the first team to unveil its name and logo. Charlotte, N.C. joins it as the only two NALL franchises to have been announced. The NALL, according to Jennings, will disclose four more teams by the end of the month. The Shamrocks plan to boost youth lacrosse development in the Wyoming Valley. Only four Wyoming Valley Conference schools – Dallas, Delaware Valley, Lake-Leh-

man, Tunkhannock, Wyoming Seminary – sport lacrosse programs. “Fifteen years ago, when the Penguins came to the area there were very few hockey teams in the area at the high school level,” said Luzerne County Commissioner Tom Cooney. “Now, hockey is being played throughout the whole area. I believe that is going to happen with lacrosse.” Lacrosse fans on hand were enthusiastic about the team logo and design. “I like the logo,” said John Van Der Wal, of Blairstown, N.J. “I think it looks fresh and the name fits the area.”

ORLANDO, Fla. — Standing on a makeshift football field atop a soundstage in the middle of flashing lights, dancing cheerleaders and screaming fans, Hank Williams, Jr. lifted his cowboy hat and belted out the words that for more than 20 years have become synonymous with the start of the NFL season. Hank Williams, Jr., the man who popularized the lyrics “Are you ready for some football?” was in Florida on Thursday recording the opening promo for an upcoming season that, right now at least, is still in limbo, with owners and players trying to strike a new labor deal. Williams said he has sympathy for both the fans who are crossing their fingers that the season begins on time and those around the negotiating table. In more than two decades associated with the league, he said he feels like a man in the middle of a fight between his friends.

months ago of obstruction of justice, but a mistrial was called on three more serious false-statements charges after jurors couldn’t agree on a verdict. Walton said he would hold a hearing Sept. 2 to decide whether Clemens should face another trial. Hardin told reporters, “I wouldn’t even hazard a guess” about what Walton will decide. Walton could end the prosecution by declaring that a new trial would run afoul of double jeopardy — the right not to be brought to trial twice on the same charges for the same offense. But experts said it was unlikely that he would go that far, especially since the trial

“We were in there recording the audio and I said, ‘Why are we doing that, they aren’t gonna play it,”’ Williams joked. “But I know a lot of people in the football world — the owners, the players, the marketing directors, and some of the great retired (players). So I see where they’re coming from. I said, ‘Well if we’re going to Orlando to shoot this thing, I guess they’re gonna play.”’ Whether or not Williams is right, what can’t be disputed is that as much as famous broadcasters like Howard Cosell and Don Meredith were identified with “Monday Night Football,” now too is the 62-year-old country star, who originally signed a one-year contract to be a part of the production in 1989. His song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night,” is a remixed version of his 1984 hit song “All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over Tonight.” The retooled version of the song won him four Emmy Awards in the early 1990s as the

was just under way. “Generally speaking, mistrial does not bar a trial of the defendant when the defendant requested the mistrial,” said Harry Sandick, a former prosecutor who now defends white-collar cases. He said a judge may make an exception for misconduct on the part of prosecutors, but this appears to have been a simple yet devastating mistake. “How could the government not have reviewed each piece of evidence after the court’s pretrial rulings?” he said. “This is crucially important, and prosecutors have to do this all the time.” The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, which tried the case,

opening theme to Monday Night Football. “You think about it, 22 years, there’s a whole generation of kids that are just getting out of college that don’t know Monday Night Football without Hank Williams, Jr.,” said Bob Toms, an ESPN vice president who was with ABC when Williams was initially hired. “That song has become an anthem and that line has become the catchphrase that says Monday night. Hank’s face and outfit, etc., kind of says ‘Monday Night Football’ to a lot of people.” ABC last produced the show for network television in 2005 before handing it over to fellow Walt Disney Company property ESPN full-time for the 2006 season. It was a seismic shift for a show that thrived outside of cable television for 35 years. “I’m the only one, everybody else is gone. The true ABC Monday Night Football — they’re gone,” Williams said.

said it would have no comment because of Walton’s gag order. Clemens also stayed mum. “I’m not going to say anything,” Clemens said as he left the courthouse. He and his legal team ducked into a nearby restaurant to escape the media horde following him. The Clemens mistrial was the biggest embarrassment for the Justice Department in a high-profile case since the prosecution of Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, in which the government failed to turn over evidence favorable to the defense. That failure, two years ago, was so serious that Attorney General Eric Holder stepped in

and asked a federal judge to throw out Stevens’ convictions. The judge did so. The unraveling of the current case began as prosecutors were showing jurors a video of Clemens’ 2008 testimony before Congress. He is accused of lying under oath during that testimony when he said he never used performanceenhancing drugs during his 24-season career. Clemens’ former teammate and close friend, Andy Pettitte, had told committee investigators that Clemens confessed in1999 or 2000 that he used human growth hormone. Clemens has said Pettitte “misremembers” or “misheard”

NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith and a half-dozen current or former players also were there, including Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, Baltimore Ravens defensive back Domonique Foxworth, and Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora. Umenyiora is one of 10 player plaintiffs in a federal antitrust lawsuit against the league. The NFL locked out players in March, after negotiations broke down and the old collective bargaining agreement expired, and now the preseason is fast approaching. With each passing day, the need to arrive at a deal to end the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987 becomes greater. The Hall of Fame game that opens the exhibition season is scheduled for Aug. 7 between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears, who hope to be able to start training camp at the end of next week. Yet camps will not open without a new CBA in place. Talks gained steam in May, overseen by a court-appointed mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, who is on vacation this week. Boylan ordered both sides to meet with him in Minneapolis early next week, and the owners have a special meeting set for next Thursday in Atlanta, where they potentially could ratify a new deal — if one is reached by then. Even once an agreement in principle on the core economic issues is drawn up, there will be more work to be done. That’s because there are certain issues that won’t be addressed in full until after the NFLPA re-establishes itself as a union — a process that might take a couple of days — and can then serve once again as a collective bargaining unit for the players. Items that could fall under that umbrella include the league’s drug-testing program, health insurance, retired players’ pensions and other benefits, none of which is likely to be resolved completely while the union is still dissolved. There’s also a chance the players could pursue a lockout injunction for rookies and free agents after an appeals court ruled last week that the work stoppage could continue. Disruptions to the planned preseason schedule would decrease the overall revenue pie. While the parameters for how to divide the more than $9 billion in annual league revenues have been sketched out, there are other sticking points still under discussion, including a rookie salary system and free agency guidelines. The owners want longer rookie contracts and have been seeking more right-of-first-refusal tags for unrestricted free agents. The players want to get back to free agency rules similar to 2009, when a four-year veteran whose contract expired was unrestricted. That minimum shifted to six years in 2010, when there was no salary cap because owners already had declared they were opting out of the old CBA. This week’s talks in New York began Monday with two days of meetings involving primarily lawyers. Wednesday’s face-toface session was attended by Goodell, Smith, owners and players went nearly 11 hours. As Wednesday’s meeting was beginning, star quarterbacks Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees — plaintiffs in the players’ antitrust suit against the NFL — issued a joint statement saying “it is time” to wrap up negotiations. their conversation. Prosecutors had wanted to call Laura Pettitte as a witness to back up her husband’s account because she says her husband told her about the conversation the day it happened. But Walton had said Laura Pettitte’s statement wasn’t admissible since it didn’t involve direct knowledge of what Clemens said. In the video prosecutors showed the jury, Rep. Elijah Cummings, DMd., referred to Pettitte’s conversation with his wife during the questioning of Clemens. Walton quickly cut off the tape and called attorneys to the bench for a private conversation for several minutes.

O’Connor to sign his book on Jeter

Nationally recognized sports columnist Ian O’Connor will attend a book signing for his new release “The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter” at Barnes & Nobles Booksellers, Arena Hub Plaza, Wilkes-Barre Township, on Saturday July 16th at 1:00 p.m. Said O’Connor of Jeter: “He never hit 25 home runs in a season, never won a batting title, never won a Most Valuable Player award … but he did win championships and a place in the debate of the greatest allaround shortstop of all time.” Jeter, who just recently became the first Yankee to eclipse the 3,000 hit plateau, has also distanced himself from his peers as a “clean” player in an era that may come to be known more for its connection to performanceenhancing drug use than its stars. “The Captain …” is culled from the numerous interviews O’Connor has conducted with Jeter over fifteen seasons as well as several interviews O’Connor has done with Jeter’s teammates, coaches, opponents and friends. O’Connor’s book provides an in-depth look at both Jeter’s time on the field, in the clubhouse and away from the game.

USA continuing to inspire pride

League lays off employees to cut costs

The Associated Press

FRANKFURT, Germany — Lauren Cheney was just 11 during the 1999 World Cup, watching from the stands and imagining what it would be like to be on that field with Mia Hamm and Michelle Akers and Julie Foudy and Brandi Chastain. Fast-forward a dozen years, and it’s Cheney’s turn in the spotlight. And somewhere, there’s another young girl watching. “She’s inspiring some 12- or 13-year-old girl just like she was inspired,” Chastain said Thursday. “That’s what I love about this team, they’re continuing the legacy.” That 1999 World Cup was a watershed moment for the U.S. team. All of women’s sports, really. The players were part of the first generation to reap the full benefits of Title IX, and they took it one step further by making it cool for girls to play sports. They were adored by little girls and boys alike, so famous the players could go by just one name. Mia. Brandi. Foudy. They packed stadiums from coast to coast — and not small ones, either. Soldier Field. The Meadowlands. Foxborough. And the granddaddy of them all, 90,000-plus in the Rose Bowl for the final. They won, too, beating China in a penalty kick shootout to give the United States a second World Cup trophy. “We showed where women’s athletics, women’s team sports, women’s soccer and soccer in general in America could go, and it was a tremendous event,” said Tony DiCicco, the

The Associated Press

coach of the ’99 team. “We didn’t realize totally what was happening outside the event. But it was life-changing. I think it was life-changing for a lot of people, including some of the athletes on the current team.” As magnificent as the team’s success was, though, it’s cast a long shadow on everyone who’s come after. Every U.S. team is compared to the ’99 squad, and nobody’s come close to measuring up. Sure, the Americans have won the last two Olympic gold medals. But the World Cup is soccer’s biggest prize, and the U.S. hasn’t even made the final in the 21st century. Until now, that is. The U.S. plays Japan in Sunday’s final with a chance to become the first country to win three World Cup titles. “I’d be tired of (the comparisons), too, if I was them. That’s all they’ve heard for 12 years,” said Foudy, who is now ESPN’s lead analyst for the tournament. “What you hear from all of them is, ‘We just want to forge our own identity,’ which you can understand. Here’s a moment that the country can embrace this team and wrap their arms around this team and they have defined it. Nobody did it for them. “They’ve given this country such a reason to love them,” Foudy added. “You couldn’t have scripted this better for them.” This U.S. team isn’t a polished, precise group that dismantles opponents, the way the ’99 team was. The Americans arrived in Germany with three losses in a five-month span, what qualifies as an alarming

Georgia Tech fined $100K, ACC title game victory tossed The Associated Press

ATLANTA — The NCAA put Georgia Tech on four years of probation, fined the school $100,000 and stripped its ACC title game victory from the 2009 football season on Thursday for violations that also included problems in the men’s basketball program. Georgia Tech did not lose scholarships and was not ruled ineligible for postseason games in either sport, but the basketball team had the number of recruiting days and official visits reduced for the next two seasons.

The NCAA vacated the final three games of the football team’s 2009 season — a loss to rival Georgia, the Atlantic Coast Conference championship win over Clemson and the Orange Bowl loss to Iowa — for using an ineligible player. It was the Yellow Jackets’ first season under coach Paul Johnson. The NCAA said Georgia Tech should have declared receiver Demaryius Thomas ineligible after he accepted $312 worth of clothing in ’09 from former Yellow Jackets quarterback Calvin Booker, who was working for a sports agent at the time.

“bad streak” for a U.S. team, and then lost a World Cup group-stage game for the first time. But they grabbed their country’s attention with one thunderous header by Abby Wambach in the 122nd minute against Brazil, and have continued to charm the folks back home with grit, determination and colorful personalities. Their bandwagon is packed with Hollywood celebs and fellow athletes — not so packed there isn’t room for more, though — and one fan is so besotted with Megan Rapinoe he wrote a song for her. (Go ahead, check it out on YouTube.) All these Americans are missing is the World Cup title, and they could take care of that on

Sunday. “It’s cool we’ve completely written our own story,” Cheney said. “Maybe we’re not the favorites. Maybe people doubted us. But we have pure hearts and determination, and we believe in each other so much.” And no one is prouder than the members of that ’99 team. “How could you not be proud of the way they fought and found a way against Brazil?” DiCicco asked. The core of the 1999 team was together for more than a decade, and those bonds have remained tight over the last 12 years. With Foudy, DiCicco, Chastain, Hamm and Briana Scurry all here working for ESPN, and Kristine Lilly turning up at games as a fan, the World Cup has turned into something of a reunion tour.

NEW YORK — The NBA laid off about 114 people over the last two days, planned cost-cutting moves that a league spokesman said Thursday are “not a direct result of the lockout.” The laid off employees represent about 11 percent of the league office workforce in New York, New Jersey and internationally. Spokesman Mike Bass told The Associated Press the layoffs are “not a direct result of the lockout but rather a response to the same underlying issue; that is, the league’s expenses far outpace our revenues.” “The roughly 11 percent reduction in headcount from the league office is part of larger costcutting measures to reduce our costs by $50 million across all areas of our business,” Bass said. The league said it lost $300 million this season after losing hundreds of millions in each previous year of the collective bargaining agreement that expired at the end of the day June 30. Owners locked out the players after the sides remained far apart in their final proposals. Commissioner David Stern said at the time it was too early to think about how it could affect staff, but acknowledged that the league would “have to go back and look at everything now with our operations.” But the reductions had already begun. The NBA and teams had trimmed staff by about 275 since October 2008, either through layoffs or by leaving positions vacant when employees departed. The league has also cut administrative costs, travel and new technology. It consolidated offices in Europe and Asia, closing offices in Paris and Tokyo, and is shutting down the studio in Secaucus, N.J. where it annually holds the draft lottery.

U.S. stock indexes fell Thursday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the central bank was not ready to take immediate action to further bolster the economy. The retreat wiped out the prior session’s gains, when some investors took Bernanke’s first day of testimony to Congress as a signal the Fed was getting ready to roll out more extraordinary stimulus. The major indexes have now fallen for four of the past five sessions. Alcoa and DuPont led drops in 23 out of 30 Dow components. JPMorgan Chase led gainers for the blue-chip index, rising 1.8 percent after the company reported increased investment-banking fees bolstered second-quarter net income above estimates.

Economy growing at a slower pace Gas prices and lack of jobs to blame By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER and DEREK KRAVITZ AP Economics Writers

WASHINGTON — A mixed slate of reports Thursday showed the economy is being held back by high gas prices and sluggish hiring. Economists are forecasting a pickup in growth in the second half of the year. But the latest data revealed only faint signs of a turnaround. The Commerce Department said retail sales ticked up only 0.1 percent last month, after declining the previous month. Consumers spent more on cars and in big chain stores in June, but less on furniture and appliances.

The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits dropped last week by 22,000 to a seasonally adjusted 405,000, the lowest level in three months. Still, applications have been above 400,000 for 14 straight weeks, reflecting the weak job market. U.S. companies paid less for raw materials and factory goods in June, a separate report showed. The decline in wholesale prices was driven by the steepest fall in energy prices in nearly two years. Gas prices dropped by the most since last May, the Labor Department said. Still, businesses and motorists are paying nearly a dollar more per gallon

than they were a year ago. That has forced many consumers to forgo discretionary purchases. Growth in retail sales has slowed since February — around the same time that gas prices began to surge. “Consumers are fatigued,” said Chris Christopher, an economist at IHS Global Insight. “The only real good news on the consumer side of the economy is that gasoline prices started to fall, but are still relatively high.” Another potential problem: businesses may be forced to cut orders in the coming months after adding to their stockpiles for 17 straight months. Sales across all levels of businesses fell in May

for the first time in nearly a year, the Commerce Department said in a fourth report. Fewer sales are a sign that companies may have overestimated consumer demand. Companies pulled back on hiring sharply this spring. The economy added only 18,000 net jobs in June, the second straight month of dismal hiring. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress on Wednesday that temporary factors, such as high gas prices and supply chain disruptions caused by the Japan crises, have slowed the economy. They should begin to fade and the economy should grow at a faster pace in the second half of this year, he said. But if not, he said the central bank is prepared to do more to stimulate growth.

INTERSTATE HOLDS GRAND OPENING

Google Inc. ushered in new CEO Larry Page with second-quarter earnings that were far better than analysts expected. The results released Thursday reassured investors who had been fretting whether Google would still thrive under Page’s leadership. The Google co-founder replaced Eric Schmidt, the CEO of the previous decade, at the start of the quarter. Wall Street wasted little time signaling its exuberance with Page’s performance. Google shares increased $52.69, or 10 percent, to $581.63 in extended trading after finishing the regular session at $528.94. Google earned $2.5 billion, or $7.68 per share, in the April-June period, a 36 percent increase from $1.84 billion, or $5.71 per share, a year ago. Revenue increased 32 percent to $9 billion, the first time in Google’s 13year history that it has brought in that much money in a quarter.

German stock exchange operator Deutsche Boerse AG said Thursday that enough of its shareholders have tendered their stock for its merger with NYSE Euronext to go through. Deutsche Boerse said that over 80 percent of shares were handed in by the midnight deadline Wednesday. It needed 75 percent.

Liquidators open bid for Borders book chain

By MAE ANDERSON AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK — Borders Group, the nation’s secondlargest book store chain that once operated over 1,000 stores, appears headed for liquidation after a judge on Thursday approved its motion to auction itself off with a team of liquidators as its opening bid. The move came after an offer made earlier this month from a private-equity investor disintegrated overnight. Borders said it will accept bids until 5 p.m. Sunday and will give notice by Monday if no other bidder emerges. Earlier this month, a private-equity investor from Phoenix offered $215 million for the company, plus the assumption of $220 million in debt. But on Wednesday, creditors objected, saying that the agreement would not prevent Najafi Cos., which owns Bookof-the-Month Club, from taking possession of the company and liquidating it immediately for profit. Landlords also ob-

jected. Creditors said a bid from liquidators Hilco Merchant Resources and Gordon Brothers is stronger. They believe it would pay out between $252 million and $284 million in cash. Creditors said in a court filing that they were hopeful Najafi would submit a higher bid, but Najafi stood by its original offer. On Thursday, Borders said it wouldn’t seek approval for

Najafi’s bid at a scheduled hearing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Southern District of New York and designated the liquidators as the primary, or “stalking horse” bid. Meanwhile, one analyst speculated that if Borders liquidates, that could spark a higher bid for its chief rival Barnes & Noble. Financier John Malone’s Liberty Media made a $1 billion offer to buy Barnes & Noble in May. Liberty Media has said it

values Barnes & Noble for both its Nook e-reader business and its retail stores, so a full liquidation of Borders would increase the value of the retail side of the business, Janney Capital Markets analyst David Strasser said. “This is perhaps an opportunity for a higher negotiated bid via Liberty or an entrance of another bidder,” he wrote in a note. Borders Group Inc., based in Ann Arbor, Mich., filed for bankruptcy protection in February. The company started with a single store in 1971, and helped pioneer the book superstore concept along with larger rival Barnes & Noble Inc. It was brought down by heightened competition by discounters and online booksellers, as well as the growth in popularity of electronic books. It currently operates about 400 stores, down from its peak in 2003 of 1,249 Borders and Waldenbooks, and has about 11,000 employees.

NEW YORK — The bidding war is intensifying for pipeline company Southern Union Co. Williams Cos. said Thursday it is increasing its offer in an effort to top a competing bid from Energy Transfer Equity LP. The new all-cash offer of $44 a share values Southern Union, which has about 125 million shares outstanding, at about $5.5 billion. Williams’ previous bid was $39 a share, but Energy Transfer topped that earlier this month with an offer of $40 a share. Southern Union, from 20012006 based in Wilkes-Barre and Scranton, owns and operates 20,000 miles of pipelines. Williams said Southern Union would complement its own business, create a network of nearly 30,000 miles of regulated pipelines and save $50 million a year for the combined companies. It said that including debt, its latest offer for Southern is valued at $9.4 billion. The latest bid is 5.7 percent premium to Southern Union’s closing price on Wednesday and 56 percent higher than shares were before the first offer in June. Southern Union shares gained $1.82, or 4.4 percent, to $43.42 in trading Thursday. Dallas-based Energy Transfer Equity had offered $33 per share for the company in mid-June. A week later, Williams offered $39 per share. Earlier this month, Energy Transfer Equity raised its bid to $40 a share. As part of the latest offer, Williams said it has strengthened its deal to make it less prone to regulatory hurdles and quicker to close. It also said the cash deal is not subject to any financing conditions. Williams is giving Southern Union less than a week to finalize the terms of the transaction; it wants to end those discussions by Tuesday. Williams Cos., which is still on track to split up its exploration and production businesses by fall, is based in Tulsa, Okla.

Countdown to Aug. 2

On Aug. 2, the U.S. will reach its borrowing limit of $14.3 trillion. Unless the limit is raised, the government could default on debt that comes due. That would likely cause heavy selling in the stock and bond markets. But financial analysts and investors expect Congress and President Obama to make a deal on budget cuts and raise the debt limit before the deadline. The haggling could go until the last minute and make many investors nervous. Here’s what to expect in the markets:

If there is a deal

While investors wait for a deal...

Investors will give stocks a “relief rally” because the U.S. won’t default on its debt. But sharp cuts in the budget could hurt the economy. Federal spending accounts for 8 percent of the gross domestic product. A deal to cut $2 trillion in spending over 10 years could shave 0.8 percentage points off economic growth next year, according to Goldman Sachs. Congress and Obama may have to revisit the debt limit in as little as 13 months, according to estimates from economists at Nomura Securities. The next fight over the debt limit could occur next fall, during the final months of the 2012 presidential election campaign.

They may no longer see government debt as a safe investment. If they start selling Treasurys, yields will rise. Yields on short-term Treasury bills may rise the most because the government must pay off many T-bills every week – so investors may see them as having the most risk. Problems in the Treasury market could spill over to banks and money-market funds. They are big buyers of Treasurys, and would see their assets falling sharply in value if there is heavy bond selling. If interest rates rise sharply, stocks and corporate bonds will likely fall. They have benefited from low rates over the last year. The dollar may fall against other currencies as the U.S. loses some of its cachet as a safe place to put money. Matthew Craft, Elizabeth Gramling • AP

My records show that so far this summer we've had no rain on 27 of the past 45 days, yet our rainfall since June 1 is still above normal. Temperatures have averaged a little above normal as well, and the long-range outlook through next week is showing warmer-thannormal July weather for our area. It's quite possible that when we look back on the summer of 2011 there won't be too much to complain about. Compliments will abound today with abundant sunshine and comfortable humidity, but more importantly tomorrow will be a very sunny day and dry as well; great pool weather! - Tom Clark
