WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis has decided to launch a criminal investigation into roughly 18,000 gallons of fuel that’s missing from the city’s fuel tanks. Salavantis said Tuesday she has assigned detectives Dan Yursha and Larry Fabian to the case. The detectives will interview employees and review records and video surveillance footage of the pumps to determine if any unauthorized use of fuel occurred. The criminal investigation follows a Times Leader story on July 1 that revealed the city could not account for 10,260 gal-

lons of gasoline and 7,620 gallons of diesel fuel dispensed from the pumps at the Public Works Department from Dec. 1, 2011 to June 22. “There are 18,000 gallons missing. It’s important to see if possibly an outside source might be taking from the city pumps, or if it’s just employees that are taking from the pumps who are, or are not, permitted,” Salavantis said. A reporter uncovered the discrepancy by comparing fuel logs employees fill out to tank records that show how much fuel was removed from the tanks daily. Salavantis said detectives will review those records, and will also seek to review video tapes from surveillance cameras lo-

cated at the Public Works Department. Drew McLaughlin, administrative coordinator for the city, said most of the fuel logs have been turned over to the state Department of Revenue, which is conducting its own audit and criminal investigation. McLaughlin said the city will cooperate with all agencies investigating the matter. City officials maintain the missing fuel is a product of poor record keeping. The criminal probes were prompted by a complaint filed by city resident Bob Kadluboski. Kadluboski asked Salavantis and the Department of Revenue to investigate based on the findings of The Times Leader’s investigation. Kadluboski had requested Salavantis refer the investigation to the state Attorney General’s Office based on the fact Mike Dessoye, chief of Luzerne county detec-

tives, is the brother of Wilkes-Barre Police Chief Gerry Dessoye, who was appointed by Mayor Tom Leighton. Leighton has acknowledged he obtained fuel from the city pumps, for a vehicle he said was used for city business. He admitted he did not fill out logs documenting how much fuel he took or the number of miles he drove for city business. Salavantis said she does not believe there is a conflict. The two detectives assigned to the case will report their findings directly to her. “I looked at it very closely,” Salavantis said. “There is always going to be a connection with someone in different departments or different individuals. I want to make sure Luzerne County handles more cases and does not refer them out to an outside agency.”

Jenkins Township has the most buyouts – 67 – followed by 26 each in Conyngham and Plains townships, Brozena said. The five other municipalities and buyouts are: Shickshinny, 25; Exeter Township, 9; West Pittston, 5; Nescopeck Township, 4; and Hunlock Township, 1. Buyout offers should be presented to affected property owners this fall so the properties could be demolished this winter, Brozena said.

WILKES-BARRE – With 112 days until the November presidential election, a major surrogate appeared in the city to stump for her party’s candidate. U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Tuesday blasted Republican presidential candidate former Schultz Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for lying and having a penchant for secrecy regarding his time as president and chief executive officer at private equity firm Bain Capital. Schultz also painted a picture of the stark difference between President Barack Obama and Romney when it comes to helping the middle class. “President Obama sticks up for the middle class, while Mitt Romney sticks it to them,” she said. “That’s what this election is about – the difference between a president who is committed to creating American jobs and growing the middle class economy, or one who outsourced jobs, shut down factories and continues to mislead

LINSANITY GONE FROM KNICKS Jeremy Lin is leaving New York and taking Linsanity to Houston. The New York Knicks announced Tuesday night that they will not match the Houston Rockets’ three-year, $25 million offer for Lin, a restricted free-agent. Lin became an international phenomenon in the Big Apple. The Rockets made it tough for the Knicks to sign off on keeping him by backloading their offer sheet with a $15 million salary in the third season. If the Knicks agreed to that deal, they would’ve faced a hefty luxury tax in 2014-15. 1B

WILKES-BARRE – The promoter for the showing of the film “The Joe We Know” did not agree with the decision to cancel the Friday night event. Marti Iben took strong objection to the report that she agreed with Marilyn Santarelli, the executive director at the F.M. Kirby Center, to cancel the film that was being offered free to the general public. “The Kirby decided to cancel

the show,” Iben said Tuesday. “When I walked into a meeting on Friday, the paperwork was already done.” Santarelli told The Times Leader on Monday she, the Kirby staff and Iben made the decision to cancel as a team. Iben, who turns 49 today, has lived in Wilkes-Barre for eight years after moving here from Baltimore. She said she was asked her opinion on the scheduled Friday night showing and she said she told the Kirby officials that

she felt it should go forward. Iben said she is not aware of any other cancellations of the film. It will be shown in Harrisburg on July 27, she said. “After careful consideration and due to the sensitivity of the subject matter, the Kirby Center has decided to forgo screening the film ‘The Joe We Know’ at this time,” said Santarelli in a prepared statement Tuesday The hour-long documentary about the late Penn State coach was first shown on Valentine’s

Balloon flight a fright Lawn chair adventurers recount harrowing moments during a thunderstorm. By JEFF BARNARD Associated Press

Two men flying matching lawn chairs suspended by helium-filled party balloons over Central Oregon last weekend said Tuesday they were floating along peacefully at 14,000 feet when thunderstorms grabbed control of their homemade craft like a giant hand. “It was so nice, so beautiful, so peaceful,” for the first three hours of the flight, said Iraqi adventurer Fareed Lafta, who joined lawn chair ballooning veteran Kent Couch in an attempt to fly from Couch’s gas station in Bend, Ore., to Montana as a warm-up for a future flight over Iraq. “I remember I can hear the cow when they are moo, the dogs. Everything was so peaceful and so nice. “Then we were in this thunderstorm.” Couch said it was like some giant hand grabbed hold of their craft. “It felt like a wind just raced up and grabbed the balloons and just squeezed them,” said Couch. “Ten of them popped at one time. It sounded like a string of firecrackers being let off. I would say

that’s probably where we felt threatened.” Normally, shooting out one or two balloons would cause them to drop, but they were still ascending — fast. When they started to fall, they dropped ballast, but kept falling. Couch said Lafta asked if they should jump with the parachutes they strapped on before climbing into their lawn chairs. “I said, ‘I don’t want to jump,’ ” Couch said. “ ‘I’m not ready to

jump yet.’ “By the time we got in our landing mode, I wished we would have jumped.” They were buffeted for an hour and a half. With half their 800 pounds of ballast and nearly half their 350 balloons gone, Couch said they would never make it to Montana, a trip of about 400 miles. Flight by helium-filled party balloons is a constant process of releasing ballast and shooting out bal-

loons, Couch said. The owner of a gas station and convenience store, Couch started flying lawn chairs in 2006, after seeing a TV show about the 1982 lawn chair flight over Los Angeles by truck driver Larry Walters. Despite the setback Saturday, both men plan to go ahead with the flight in Iraq, attempting to break an altitude record this October from a site to be determined.

HARVEYS LAKE

Voters will decide on police station relocation W H AT ’ S N E X T

By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

HARVEYS LAKE – Council voted 4-3 Tuesday to put the issue of relocating the police station on the general election ballot in November as a referendum question. Council members Michell’e Boice, Thomas Kehler, Ed Kelly and Amy Williams voted for the measure, while Larry Radel, Fran Kopko and Boyd Barber voted against it. The motion, proposed by Boice, also asked council to “slow down” with the process of relocating the station and finding estimates for renovating the existing building. The issue has been one of contention since the borough was awarded grant funds to relocate the station from state Route 415 across from the municipal building to a former recreation building at 22 Little League Road near the borough’s public works facilities. Several residents also spoke out during the meeting about the project, stating the public was not aware of the police department’s complaints about the existing building.

The next borough council meeting will be held Aug. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the municipal building.

Mayor Clarence Hogan has said the existing building is not suitable for a police department due to its wooden frame, poor plumbing and other conditions that would cause a problem for security. The former recreation building is a concrete shell, and the renovations needed to convert it to an up-to-code and handicappedaccessible police station are estimated to cost nearly $80,000. Council solicited bids for the project last month, and Radel said bids are expected this week. Many residents have had concerns about the project since it was revealed, from the safety of the proposed location to whether council had violated the Sunshine Law in applying for the grant. Former council member and resident Diane Dwyer said she was uncertain how the

S.F. area may tax drivers per mile By MIKE ROSENBERG San Jose Mercury News

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Imagine being taxed a dollar for driving to the store. Commute to work? That’ll be a few bucks more. Is it crazy or the way of the future? The San Francisco Bay Area is considering a long-range plan to become the first place in the nation to tax drivers for every mile they travel, with an average bill of up to $1,300 per year. The proposal is a long way from becoming reality. But under the scenario, drivers would likely have to install GPS-like trackers on their cars to tally travel in the nine-county Bay Area, from freeways to neighborhood streets, with only lowincome people exempted. Transportation planners know they would have a tough time selling such a radical plan but argue the goal of the socalled VMT (vehicle miles traveled) tax is to reduce traffic and pollution while raising revenue needed to fill potholes and bolster public transit service. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission is leading the effort. Spokesman Randy Rentschler said realistically the plan is so complex it might take a decade to implement if the public buys in.

Under the early proposal, the VMT tax could cost up to a dime per mile, or the cost may peak during rush hour and bottom out, perhaps to less than a penny per mile, when no one’s on the roads. County supervisors and city council members around the Bay Area, on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Association of Bay Area governments, are set Thursday to authorize a study of the proposal, though they haven’t yet weighed in on the actual merits of a VMT tax. If approved, officials would likely need the OK from voters and the state Legislature. But first, they’d have to overcome major concerns about Uncle Sam reaching deeper into their pocket and Big Brother looking over their shoulder. Experts think VMT taxes have merit but won’t be realistic until the primary source of transportation funding — taxes on each gallon of gas — dries up. Proponents from transit advocates to environmentalists to public policy planners say people need new thinking to reduce rush-hour traffic as the Bay Area grows and new ways to raise billions of dollars to strengthen a deteriorating transportation network.

grant application could state that the borough intended to move the secretary and zoning officer to the current police building as part of the project but now “the (police) building is condemned.” Resident Ed Williams made a comment about Hogan’s letter from November 2011 sent to the state Department of Community and Economic Development, which stated the project had community support. “What is your idea of community support?” he asked Hogan. Hogan said he received positive comments from the public through “word of mouth.” When the motion to put the issue to referendum was approved, Radel told Boice he would have to check with the solicitor about the legality of her motion. Solicitor Charles McCormick had left prior to the vote. Boice said the grant application could be reworked to conduct renovations on the existing police building, but that will not be done until the public votes on the issue. She said the grant does not expire until June 2014.

Dallas Twp. chief to serve on state panel By GERI GIBBONS Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS TWP. – Supervisor Liz Martin commended Dallas Township Police Chief Robert Jolley on being invited to serve as a member of the Joint State Government Advisory Committee on Capital Punishment. “It is quite on an honor to be asked to serve with such an impressive group of people,” said Martin on the invitation. In another matter, Solicitor Bill McCall addressed Turkey Hill’s application for a permit for reconstruction of the store at the intersection of Routes 415 and 118. McCall said the request was premature and it would be evaluated after plans for the project were submitted. Also, the board announced intent to advertise for an appointment of a resident to the Dallas Area Municipal Authority to fulfill the term of Tom Doughton, who recently resigned. The board will discuss the matter at its next special meeting. In another matter, resident Morrell Devlin, Elmcrest Drive, addressed the board about a

Martin Barry, roadmaster, said safety was the township’s first priority and the swale was necessary, especially during the winter when water on the roadway could lead to dangerous, icy conditions. Supervisor Frank Wagner also emphasized safety. Board members said they would go out to the Devlin property, assess the situation and report back at the next meeting. The supervisors tabled an ordinance relating to reverse subdivision and will again address it at their next meeting, allowing McCall to do more research on the matter. There will be a public meeting on Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. on the new flood plain ordinance, prior to the board work session, which is open to the public.

Water withdrawals halted The Susquehanna River Basin Commission on Monday announced that it has suspended 64 water withdrawals due to lower streamflow levels in the Susquehanna basin. The commission permits and regulates withdrawal of water totaling more than 100,000 gallons per day or for use in natural gas development. It may suspend a company’s right to take water to protect the health of streams and rivers when streamflow falls below predetermined levels. Suspended withdrawals cannot resume until streams have risen above the protected level. The suspended withdrawals are operated by 33 companies in 13 Pennsylvania counties and one New York county. In Luzerne County, the basin commission suspended the rights of Cedar Rock Materials Corp. and Eagle Rock Resort to withdraw water from Bower Quarry. In Lackawanna County it suspended construction company Linde Corp.’s privilege to take water from the Lackawanna River. In Wyoming County, it suspended the rights of two natural gas drilling companies, Carrizo and Chesapeake, and four companies supplying water for use in drilling, Mountain Energy Services, Randy M. Wiernusz, Sugar Hollow Water Services and Susquehanna Gas Field Services, to take water from various streams and the Susquehanna River. The commission also suspended withdrawals for Sugar Hollow Trout Park and Hatchery and Shadowbrook Resort. WILKES-BARRE

Cody Lee ruling date set A ruling by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr. should be issued within 20 days if Cody Lee will face a homicide charge in juvenile court or if the case remains in county court. Five days of arguments that ended Monday night involved Lee’s attorneys, Peter Paul Olszewski Jr., Melissa Scartelli and Charles Rado, and district attorneys Michael Melnick, Shannon Crake and Mamie Phillips. If Sklarosky grants the request, Lee could be incarcerated until the age of 21. If denied, Lee will face the homicide charge in county court and likely a jury trial. State police at Wyoming and county detectives alleged Lee, then 16, carried out a plan to kill his greatgrandfather, Herbert Lee, 80, inside the family’s home on Meeker Outlet Road in Lake Township on Dec. 9, 2009. Forensic pathologist Dr. Gary Ross testified during the five-day hearing that Herbert Lee died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

The state Superior Court has overturned a Luzerne County judge’s ruling that lowered the grading of a charge filed against a woman accused of leaving the scene of a fatal pedestrian accident. The court ruled senior Judge Charles C. Brown erred when he lowered the grading of the offense against Megan Panowicz from a third-degree felony to a first-degree misdemeanor – a decision that reduced the possible sentence from a mandatory one year to 90 days in prison. Panowicz, 27, of Forty Fort, was

charged in connection with the Aug. 7, 2008, death of Sharon Shaughnessy, who was killed on Wyoming Avenue in Kingston after she was struck by three vehicles, including one allegedly driven by Panowicz. Panowicz left the scene before police arrived. She turned herself in the next day and was charged with accidents involving death or personal injury. The case came before Brown in January 2011 after Panowicz’s attorney, Basil Russin, filed a motion questioning if police had sufficient evidence to support the charge. Brown ruled they did, but he lowered the grading of the offense, prompting the prosecution to appeal.

The appeal was handled by the state Office of Attorney General, which took over the case because county District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis had worked with Megan Panowicz’s father, attorney Robert Panowicz, before Salavantis was elected. The issue before the Superior Court focused on whether Panowicz’s vehicle, which was the first to strike Shaughnessy, caused the fatal injuries. Deputy Attorney General William Stoycos acknowledged it’s unclear which collision caused the victim’s death, but argued that determination should be left to a jury to decide, not the

judge. A three-member panel of the Superior Court agreed. The case has been returned to Luzerne County Court for trial. No trial date has been set. In its ruling, the court said prosecutors had presented sufficient evidence to support the third degree felony grading because the statute covers death or serious bodily injury to the victim. Evidence presented showed Shaughnessy was still alive after she was first hit, but was seriously injured and was unable to get up from the roadway, leading to her being struck by the other vehicles. Russin did not return a phone message Tuesday regarding whether he will seek to appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court.

URYEA – Linda Tomlinson was sure glad to see the group arrive at her Main Street home Tuesday morning. Volunteers from seven states are in the flood-ravaged borough this week, helping homeowners who have received some assistance repairing damage caused by last September’s flooding but who have a long road back to full recovery.

“It’s taking a while,” said Tomlinson, who lives in the home with her husband and daughter. “These people have been wonderful. They cleaned all of the dirt and mud out of my basement and ripped out drywall on the first floor.” Tomlinson’s house received 2 feet of water in September when the Susquehanna River rose to record levels, causing major flooding in areas not protected by levees. She said the Federal Emergency Management Agency helped some, but didn’t cover the

entire cost of cleanup and renovation. Volunteers will return to the house later this summer to put up new walls, said Garry Van Scoy, coordinator of the Disaster Recovery Coalition of Luzerne County. He and Jen Thyren have been coordinating visiting volunteer groups, mostly representing church organizations, all summer. Thyren said groups will be performing volunteer work through mid-August. The group in Duryea on Tuesday was made up of125 adults and college

and high school students who are participating in a week-long LOGOS Ministry conference at the University of Scranton. They wore shirts – some trimmed into capes like super heroes wear – with a phrase on the back that read “Belief is words; faith is action.” They are from as far away as Maryland, Alabama and Massachusetts. Van Scoy said volunteers were fixing a roof, removing dirt and debris from homes, tearing down walls and See DURYEA, Page 4A

Kizis followed Yagloski to where Yagloski had Yagloski parked a Chevrolet pickup. Kizis approached the truck and somehow smashed the rear window as Yagloski drove away, police said. Kizis provided police with the truck’s license plate number that was traced to Yagloski’s residence, where he was arrested. A clerk told police a man identified in arrest records as Yagloski had his face concealed with a black handkerchief and pulled out a gun demanding money from the register. Police allege in arrest records Yagloski matched the description of the suspect and had a black handkerchief hanging from a back pocket. Yagloski was arraigned Tuesday in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on two counts of robbery, and one count each of theft, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail. Court records say Yagloski is facing multiple charges resulting from previous incidents: an alleged pursuit with Wilkes-Barre police on May 23, 2010; fleeing police and reckless endangerment in regards to an alleged pursuit with Wilkes-Barre Township police on July 2, 2010; and stealing a radio-controlled car from Walter’s Hardware on North Welles Street, WilkesBarre, on April 7, 2011. Yagloski was free on bail when he was arrested for the alleged robbery at CVS Pharmacy. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on July 25 before District Judge Joseph Carmody in West Pittston.

Molly Douthett, a pastor from West Virginia, said “mission days” like Tuesday help to build character in the students and teach them the importance of community involvement. “Today is a hands-on experience for them to live out their faith. They are the hands, arms and feet of Jesus,” Douthett said. Nicole Conniff, 19, of Maryland, said she helped clean up a nearby park. “A little boy thanked us for cleaning the place where he and his friends play every day,” she said.

Battles rage in new areas of Damascus

Syrian regime increases campaign on rebels in capital By ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

Victims of the drought

One stunted plant remains in a row of corn in rural Nebraska on Tuesday. The nation’s widest drought in decades is spreading, with more than half of the continental United States now in some stage of drought and most of the rest enduring abnormally dry conditions. IRWIN, PA.

Romney ups attacks in Pa.

BEIRUT — Syrian government forces attacked rebels with helicopter gunships in the heart of Damascus on Tuesday, escalating a campaign to crush their opponents as clashes spread to new areas, illustrating the rebels’ growing reach. Gunfire and explosions echoed inside the capital for a third day, including a firefight near the country’s parliament, in an unprecedented challenge in President Bashar Assad’s seat of power. Neighboring Iraq called on its citizens living in Syria to return home. Special envoy Kofi Annan was in Moscow in an attempt to rescue his faltering peace plan. Helicopter gunships strafed areas of Damascus, activists said, a sign the re-

gime is growing desperate to push the rebels out of the capital. Terrified families fled the city or said they were prepared to run for their lives at a moment’s notice. Clashes were concentrated in the neighborhoods of Kfar Souseh, Nahr Aisha, Midan and Qadam — a mixture of lower- and middle-to-upper-class districts in the city’s southwest where battles first erupted Sunday. Heavy clashes were also reported in Qaboun, a neighborhood in northeast Damascus. “The streets are completely empty, the shops are closed. People are terrified of what’s next,” said Omar Qabouni, an activist in Qaboun. He said eight people were killed Tuesday in mortar and tank shelling by government forces. He estimated that about 300 rebels were taking part in the fighting. Activists and residents said the fight-

ing reached new areas Tuesday, with brief firefights erupting in Sabeh Bahrat Square, Baghdad Street and Sahet Arnous in downtown Damascus, about 400 yards from the Syrian parliament. The clashes broke up quickly as the rebels fled, but were a significant indicator of the spreading violence and the deep reach of the rebels as they become more confident and better armed. Troops also threw up multiple checkpoints and were searching cars in an effort to seal the capital off from rebellious areas in the suburbs. Damascus-based activist Maath AlShami said residents of hard-hit areas were fleeing to safer neighborhoods where they were staying in schools and mosques. He added that many of the wounded were being treated at secret hospitals for fear they might be detained if taken to official ones.

Downside to rejecting ‘Obamacare’

itt Romney intensified his criticism of President Barack Obama M on Tuesday, accusing Obama of in-

sulting business leaders after a key Romney supporter questioned Obama’s patriotism. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is trying to shift attention from his business record and tax returns with a fresh assault as Obama, anxious about losing his fundraising edge, turned to GOP-tilted Texas to raise millions of dollars from gay, Latino and big-dollar donors. “Do we believe in an America that is great because of government, or do we believe in an America that’s great because of free people allowed to pursue their dream?” Romney asked a cheering crowd at a gas and oil services company in western Pa. Campaigning in San Antonio, Obama offered his familiar vision of a government that supports the middle class. As he put it: “We rise or fall as one nation.” “I believe in bottom-up economics. I believe in fighting on behalf of working families,” Obama said. “Because when we do that, everybody does better. ... That’s what built this country.”

BPA ban on baby bottles

The federal government says baby bottles and sippy cups can no longer contain the controversial chemical bisphenol-A, or BPA. Legislation introduced by some members of Congress would ban BPA nationwide in all canned food, water bottles and food containers. Chemical makers maintain that the plastic-hardening chemical is safe for all food and drink uses. TUSCALOOSA, ALA.

Gunman turns himself in

A gunman stood outside of a crowded downtown bar and opened fire from two different positions early Tuesday, sending patrons running or crawling for cover in a chaotic and bloody scene. At least 17 people were hurt as bullets ricocheted and debris, glass and brick fell in and around the nightclub. The gunman turned himself in to police several hours after the 12:30 a.m. shooting near the University of Alabama. Police believed the rampage was connected to a shooting at a home 45 minutes earlier, and they were investigating whether both evolved from a dispute between motorcycle gangs. Chief Steve Anderson wouldn’t identify the man until charges were filed. NEW DELHI

U.S. sorry about shooting

The U.S. Embassy in India expressed condolences Tuesday after a U.S. naval vessel in the Persian Gulf opened fire Monday on a small fishing vessel, killing an Indian and wounding three others. India has called on the United Arab Emirates, in whose waters the shooting took place, to investigate. In a statement, the embassy said the U.S. was launching its own probe, but suggested the use of force was justified given that the small motorized vessel was approaching the Rappahannock supply ship at a rapid pace and failed to heed several warnings to turn away. The U.S. Navy has been wary of small boats getting too close to warships since the 2000 suicide attack against the destroyer Cole in Yemen that killed 17 sailors and injured 39. The shooting took place just outside the Strait of Hormuz.

On Tuesday, Israel’s military intelligence chief warned that global jihadists have moved into Syrian territory bordering the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and could soon use the area to stage attacks on the Jewish state. Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said the kingdom was taking precautions to ward off a possible Syrian chemical attack, but declined to say what they were. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for rapid, unified action by the Security Council on Syria as he arrived in Beijing on Tuesday as part of a diplomatic push to get Russia and China to back a tougher response to attacks by Assad’s regime. Ban’s trip comes ahead of a Security Council vote today on whether to allow sanctions and authorize actions to enforce them that could ultimately include the use of military force, which U.S. and European officials are playing down as a possibility.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry speaks June 7 during the Texas Republican Convention in Fort Worth, Texas. For Perry, saying ‘no’ to the federal health care law could also mean turning away coverage for up to 1.3 million people.

Some states to just say ‘no’ By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press

W

ASHINGTON — For Gov. Rick Perry, saying “no” to the federal health care law could also mean turning away up to 1.3 million Texans, nearly half the uninsured people who could be newly eligible for coverage in his state.

Gov. Chris Christie not only would be saying “no” to President Barack Obama, but to as many as 245,000 uninsured New Jersey residents as well. The Supreme Court’s recent ruling gave governors new flexibility to reject what some Republicans deride as “Obamacare.” But there’s a downside, too. States that reject the law’s Medicaid expansion risk leaving behind many of their low-income uninsured residents in a coverage gap already being called the new “doughnut hole” — a reference to a Medicare gap faced by seniors. Medicaid is a giant federal-state health insurance program for the poor, now mostly covering children, mothers and disabled people. The expan-

sion in Obama’s health care overhaul was originally expected to add roughly 15 million uninsured low-income people, mainly adults without children, who currently are not eligible in most states. Washington would pick up the entire cost for the first three years, with the federal share then dropping to 90 percent. The Medicaid expansion accounts for about half the total number of uninsured people projected to get coverage under the law. If every state were to reject that Medicaid expansion — as the Supreme Court ruling now allows — some low-income people would still be picked up by other coverage provisions meant to help the middle class. But nearly 11.5 million uninsured people below the federal poverty line would be left behind in a new coverage gap, according to recent estimates from the Urban Institute. That brings to mind the infamous “doughnut hole” in the Medicare prescription drug benefit, in which seniors with high drug costs find themselves paying out of pocket much of the year. Those who fall into the new gap would neither qualify for Medicaid in

their states under current rules nor be eligible for subsidized private insurance in new state marketplaces that Obama’s law calls exchanges. Low-income children and mothers would continue to have insurance through Medicaid. Then, starting in 2014, millions of people over the poverty line would have subsidized private coverage through the new exchanges. “And then this group in the middle has nothing,” said Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors. His organization takes no position on what states should do. Things only get trickier from there. “This is a lot of federal dollars that will lead to a lot of people having health care,” said Salo. That means federal taxes from states opting out would be helping to subsidize coverage elsewhere. And hospitals in opt-out states would still get hit with cuts programmed in the law under the assumption that every state would take the Medicaid expansion and fewer uninsured people would be needing charity care.

Origin of needles on Delta flights sought By JOSHUA FREED AP Airlines Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — Delta Air Lines Inc. and the FBI are trying to figure out how needles got into turkey sandwiches served aboard four flights from Amsterdam. One passenger was injured. The airline said that what appear to be sewing needles were found in five sandwiches on Sunday. One passenger on a flight to Minneapolis was injured, but the passenger declined to get med-

ical attention, according to Delta spokeswoman Kristin Baur. The other needles were on two flights to Atlanta and one to Seattle. The FBI’s Atlanta office has opened a criminal investigation into the matter, the agency said in a written statement. An FBI spokesman in Atlanta did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment. Baur said flight attendants stopped serving the sandwiches as soon as the needle was found. Messages

went out to other flights en route from Amsterdam, where the sandwiches had been prepared by a catering company. Another sandwich served on the Minneapolis-bound flight also had a needle, Baur said. After the needles were found, passengers got pizza instead. Baur said security for its meal production has been increased and it is using more prepackaged food while the probe continues.

The sandwiches were made in the Amsterdam kitchen of catering company Gate Gourmet, and were to be served to business class passengers on Delta flights. Gate Gourmet spokeswoman Christina Ulosevich said the company has gotten no reports of similar incidents on any of the other airlines it serves out of Amsterdam. She said the company did not yet know how the needles got into the sandwiches.

NEW YORK — After a confidential two-year review, the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday emphatically reaffirmed its policy of excluding gays, angering critics who hoped that relentless protest campaigns might lead to change. The Scouts cited support from parents as a key reason for keeping the policy and expressed hope that the prolonged debate over it might now subside. Bitter reactions from gay-rights Mazzuca activists suggested that result was unlikely. The Scouts’ national spokesman, Deron Smith, told The Associated Press that an 11-member special committee, formed discreetly by top Scout leaders in 2010, came to the conclusion that the exclusion policy “is absolutely the best policy” for the 112-year-old organization. Smith said the committee, composed of professional scout executives and adult volunteers, was unanimous in its conclusion — preserving a long-standing policy that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 and has remained controversial ever since. As a result of the committee’s decision, the Scouts’ national executive board will take no further action on a resolution submitted at its recent national conference asking for reconsideration of the membership policy. The Scouts’ chief executive, Bob Mazzuca, contended that most Scout families support the policy, which applies to both adult leaders and Scouts. “The vast majority of the parents of youth we serve value their right to address issues of same-sex orientation within their family, with spiritual advisers and at the appropriate time and in the right setting,” Mazzuca said. “We fully understand that no single policy will accommodate the many diverse views among our membership or society.” The president of the largest U.S. gayrights group, Chad Griffin of the Human Rights Campaign, depicted the Scouts’ decision as “a missed opportunity of colossal proportions.” “With the country moving toward inclusion, the leaders of the Boy Scouts of America have instead sent a message to young people that only some of them are valued,” he said. “They’ve chosen to teach division and intolerance.” Darlene Nipper, deputy executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said the Scouts “have turned their backs on a chance to demonstrate fairness, exercise sound judgment, and serve as a role model for valuing others.”

July 17, 2012

Seidel completed her long A lice journey through life and went

home to be with those who went before her Monday, July 16, 2012, at Little Flower Manor in WilkesBarre. Alice’s life had many rewards and challenges, all of which she met head on. She was born June 21, 1917, in Miners Mills, the ninth of 10 children born to John Finn and Anna Burke Finn. Her parents being pioneers in the soda industry, having started the Finn’s Bottling Works, brought Alice in at an early age as a bottle washer. After attending school in WilkesBarre, and leaving the “bottling works,” she started her work in the retail field at Neisners Department Store. She met Joseph, her first husband, at Pat Toole’s Inn in Bear Creek. The Tooles being relatives, she would frequent the inn with her friends and listen to the bands. Joe playing trumpet in one of the bands caught Alice’s eye, and to the tune “Stormy Weather” they fell in love, married on January 28, 1940, and brought four children into the world; sadly God called her youngest and only son, Joseph, home at the tender age of six weeks. Seeing her children heading into independence, Alice felt the need to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a nurse. She entered the first Licensed Practical Nursing School of Wilkes-Barre and began the career she always felt called to do, caring for people as a nurse. Her first job at the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital gave her so many fulfillments. Recognizing her abilities, Alice was asked to be the first LPN to work the new Intensive Care Unit at the General. During this time her beloved Joe passed away on November 5, 1974. Her work filled the space left by an aching heart. Leaving the General, Alice took a post at the VA Hospital in WilkesBarre, where she stayed until her retirement. She met Al Seidel at this time, and allowed her heart to once again enter into the world of love and sharing. They married August 24, 1982. Although they were granted only 10 years together, they were years filled with adventure, travel,

shared love and respect. She lost Al on July 18, 1992. Alice spent the remainder of her years surrounded by family, friends, and great memories. Preceding Alice, and waiting for her besides her parents, husbands and son, are her granddaughter, Tara Ann Sowul; brothers, John, James, Thomas Joseph, Thomas and Gerald Finn; sisters, Agnes McCartney, Mary Fallon, and Jane Letchko. Surviving Alice and keeping her memory alive are her daughters, Mary Jo (Matthew) Sowul, Colts Neck, N.J.; Ann (Jack) Morgan, Hanover Township; and Alice (Thomas) Gilmore, West Pittston; eight grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; step-children, Richard Seidel, West Pittston; Robert, Duryea; Neil (Melinda) Evansville, Ind.; Carolyn (Thomas) Gibbon, Hanover Township; eight step-grandchildren; 14 step-great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews. The family of Alice would like to give a heartfelt “thank you” to all who cared for her at Little Flower Manor in Wilkes-Barre. They do not have staff working, there they have angels. Funeral will be held Thursday at 9:30 a.m. in the Corcoran Funeral Home Inc., 20 S. Main St., Plains Township, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. Benedict Parish, St. Dominic’s Church, 155 Austin Ave., Wilkes-Barre.

defendants whenever the Public Defender’s Office has a conflict of interest in representing them. That often occurs when two defendants are charged with the same crime. That pool had consisted of 11 attorneys, but David Lampman of Wilkes-Barre opted to withdraw after learning of the additional cases. Lampman said Tuesday he did not want to resign, but felt he had no choice because the additional caseload would be too much to handle. Lampman had been handling some of the more complex cases, including the double homicide trial of Hugo Selenski, and had requested his caseload be lightened so he could focus on Selenski’s case. “The caseload was too heavy before, honestly. With the news of the public defender’s backlog being handled by conflict counsel, that certainly played a role in my decision to resign.” Shucosky said the additional caseload will be a burden on the 10 conflict counsel attorneys, who are paid a flat rate of approximately $26,000 a year, plus benefits. They have agreed to assist the county without any additional compensation, he said. “It’s a burden and a hardship, but they realize something has to be done. They expressed a willingness to take these on,” Shucosky said. Attorney William Watt, a member of the conflict counsel pool, agreed the cases will be a burden. “It’s bringing more work, but with the financial situation the county is in, we needed to chip in a bit and we’re willing to do that,” Watt said.

WILKES-BARRE – Indigent defendants who were denied representation by the Luzerne County Public Defender’s Office earlier this year will be represented by a pool of 10 attorneys employed by the county to handle cases in which the office has a conflict. Deputy Court Administrator Mike Shucosky said the attorneys, known as conflict counsel, agreed to take on the cases in order to assist the county in resolving its obligation to provide attorneys to criminal defendants who cannot afford a lawyer. Hundreds of defendants were left without representation after Chief Public Defender Al Flora announced in December that his office, due to a lack of staffing, was limiting the types of cases it would accept to serious felonies, with certain exceptions. Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello last month ordered the county to allow Flora to fill several vacant positions. He also ordered Flora to resume accepting all cases in which a defendant qualified financially. The number of defendants without representation, initially estimated at around 450 in May, grew to roughly 550 by the time Augello issued his ruling, Shucosky said. Shucosky said about half of those cases have seen been resolved. Some were withdrawn, while others ended in plea deals or with the defendant obtaining private counsel. That leaves about 250 to 275 cases that still need to be processed. The conflict counsel pool Terrie Morgan-Besecker, a staff consists of attorneys who are writer for The Times Leader, may appointed to represent indigent be reached at 570-970-7179.

eral government for flood repairs over a specific time span must exceed the cost of constructing a flood protection system such as a levee in order for the borough to qualify. Guise doubted the borough’s BCR would increase above a 1.0 even given the devastation sustained in the September flooding, but she didn’t rule it out. However, Congress must pass a resolution authorizing the Corps to even study the feasibility of such aproject,andCongresshasnotprovided funding for new projects in years. “There are many reasons I’m not suggesting the traditional route,” Guise said. Another route the borough can take – and for which funding is still available this fiscal quarter – is applying for Act 205 funding through the Corps’ Continuing Authorities Program, Guise said. Guise said Congress appropriates annual funding to the Corps for projects that don’t exceed $11 million, and the Corps can decide which small projects get funded. The federal funding cap for any such project is $7 million; local sources must pay the rest. The borough must still have a BCR of 1.0 or higher to qualify for such a project, but the good news is there is no BCR qualification for an initial $100,000 that could pay for a feasibility study. The Corps would fund half of any cost in excess of $100,000. “It could get the ball rolling without the risk of being in a legally binding cost-share arrangement,” Guise said. Guise also shared information about its Floodplain Management Services and Planning Assistance to States programs, which can provide technical assistance for flood modeling and mapping, floodproofing and similar projects. But funding for those programs is exhausted for the current fiscal quar-

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne man was found guilty by a Luzerne County jury Tuesday of stealing steel pipes from a construction business on New Frederick Street in Wilkes-Barre. George I. Smith, 41, of North Street, was convicted of theft and criminal conspiracy in the theft of steel pipes from DeAngelo Construction on March 22, 2011. Jurors deliberated for 55 minutes before reaching a verdict after a two-day trial before Judge Tina Polachek Gartley. City Wide Tower Bob Kadluboski, a witness to the theft, testified during the trial. Arrest records say Kadluboski spotted the theft and video recorded Smith and co-conspirator Alexander O’Donnell, 38, of Terrace Avenue, Trucksville. O’Donnell pleaded guilty to theft and criminal conspiracy and was sentenced in April to six months probation, according to court records. Smith is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 5.

Attorney seeks Selenski trial delay Attorney Shelly Centini cites lawyer’s resignation from case as reason for request.

By EDWARD LEWIS and TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER elewis@timesleader.com tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – An attorney for Hugo Selenski is again asking the court to postpone his double homicide trial, citing the resignation of a key member of the defense team. In a 25-page motion filed Tuesday, attorney Shelly Centini said attorney David Lampman’s resignation from the case has created a huge void, leaving her and cocounsel, Edward J. Rymsza, insufficient time to review the voluminous case file in time for the scheduled Sept. 10 start of the trial. Centini said she has reviewed only about one-third of the 20,000 pages of discovery in 26 banker boxes, five binders, three full filing cabinets and compact discs containing thousands of pages of documents, photos and videos since she was court-appointed to represent Selenski, 38, in January. “Centini and Rymsza need full

Council OKs payment on 2007 loan By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA – Council acted Monday night to stay in the good graces of Citizens Bank and not jeopardize a pending $6 million sewage system construction loan with Fulton Bank of Lancaster by resolving its payments to Citizens. Council voted unanimously to pay a past-due interest payment of $1,867 on a $307,000 loan that dates to 2007 and at the same time voted to pay, prior to Aug. 5, another regular monthly payment of $949.29. Council has been making interest payments on the indebtedness which was incurred by the Nuangola Sewer Authority. John Kochan, president of council, commented that the pending transaction with Fulton Bank hinges on the borough being current on its financial obligations. Kochan said the accounting firm of Bonita & Rainey Associates is reviewing records submitted to council by Melissa Weber, past secretary/treasurer, dating from June 15, which was the original date of Weber’s resignation. The audit is expected to cost $700. Kochan said he and Sabine Thomas, the newly elected secretary/treasurer, have undertaken a review of computer files that have been compiled. Part of the overhaul, Kochan said, contained a finding that Weber, through an electronic transaction, paid $17,280 to Benesch Engineers of Pottsville without authorization of council. Kochan and Councilman Joe Tucker said no record exists of council voting to approve the payment to Benesch. In other issues: • Borough resident Damon Starkey Jr. said Lake Avenue. which is used as lake access by boaters and as a fire access road, is in ”deplorable” condition. Kochan and Tucker said they, along with a PennDOT official, would check the street on Friday when they also will inspect Willow Grove Street. • Kochan also got into a dispute with Damon Starkey Sr., who complained about the lack of a building inspector. Starkey said fees are not being collected, there is no enforcement of regulation, no protection from shady contractors and no electrical or plumbing inspections. He said these are responsibilities that are not the province of a codes officer. Steve Bieryla, codes and zoning officer, was not in attendance to respond to Starkey. Kochan’s said, “We’ll look into it.”

assistance of all team members if there was any chance in the world of getting this case trial-ready for September 10, 2012,” Centini said in the motion. Selenski’s trial on charges he killed Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett on May 3, 2002, has been delayed several times since he was charged with their homicides in May 2006. The bodies of Kerkowski and Fassett were found June 5, 2003, in a shallow grave outside a Kingston Township house where Selenski had lived. Lampman, of Wilkes-Barre, had been representing Selenski

27 conflict counsel cases he was handling so that he could focus on Selenski. When he found out he was being given more, rather than fewer cases, he felt he had no choice but to resign. “Leaving Hugo Selenski is the last thing I wanted to do, but I can’t get involved in a six-to-eightweek trial, then handle my current conflict counsel cases, plus the additional public defender backlog,” Lampman said. “There is only so much you can do.” Judge Fred Pierantoni, who is presiding over Selenski’s case, has not ruled on Centini’s request to continue the trial.

through Lampman’s position as a member of the conflict counsel pool – a group of 11 attorneys who represent indigent defendants when the Public Defender’s office has a conflict. Lampman resigned as conflict counsel on July 2 after learning he and other attorneys in the pool would be required to take on approximately 250 to 275 cases of defendants who had been denied representation by the Public Defender’s Office due to staffing concerns. Lampman said Tuesday he had previously filed a motion with the court seeking to be removed from

OUR OPINION: RESPONSIBILITY

Board members have great duty

A

LTHOUGH IT came one sex offender, one cover-up, one off-campus riot and at least one decade too late, Penn State University’s trustees last week reached the conclusion they should take a more active and “robust” oversight role. You don’t say? Now, if only that message would reach the ears – and consciences – of people serving on boards elsewhere, including with Luzerne County’s many educational institutions, volunteer fire companies, religious entities, sports programs, social service agencies and other nonprofit groups. As a paid or unpaid board member for one of these vital organizations, you become entrusted to manage its affairs and to define, or redefine, its mission. Your decisions, and behaviors, set the tone for the entire operation. You are responsible for safeguarding its money and its standing in the community. And, yes, if things go wrong, you share the blame. The Penn State debacle, in which a pedophile committed crimes on campus that went unreported by higher-ups for years, should serve as a cautionary tale, spurring conversations in area board rooms. Is your group doing its job? Are the board’s members, for instance, providing performance evaluations, routinely monitoring for conflicts of interest and abiding by its bylaws? If your answers to those latter three questions sound like this – “No,” “No” and “Has anyone seen a copy of the bylaws lately?” – you might be courting

trouble, even a catastrophe. Witness, for example, the pathetic case of the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s area chapter. In 2007, its director was sentenced to prison on charges of theft and forgery for fabricating stories about critically ill children and then diverting money intended for those kids to buy gifts and vacation packages for herself and her friends. Where was the board oversight? How could so many people be asleep at the wheel? Unfortunately, in too many cases, board members consider their duties to consist of showing up at occasional meetings, listening to long-winded presenters and casting a few votes. Not so. As a board member, you need to ask questions. Lots of questions. You should challenge, or at least verify, the validity of the information that you’re being spoon-fed. Make a few phone calls and collect information independently. And if red flags are waved, respond to them promptly and properly. If you can’t fulfill the responsibilities of a board member, step down. Otherwise, at the very least, the group that you claim to be supporting probably isn’t reaching its potential. At worst, you might wake up one morning and see its name splashed across the newspaper’s front page – for all the wrong reasons.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We would expect that in this situation, rational behavior will take hold.” Marion Blakey The president and chief executive officer of the Aerospace Industries Association voiced confidence that Congress will stave off “automatic” cuts in federal spending slated to kick in Jan. 2. If not, one study suggests that 2 million jobs will be lost in areas such as defense contracting.

OTHER OPINION: WELFARE CUTOFFS

Reinstate benefits for those in need

I

N 2011, Pennsylvania’s Department of Public Welfare cut off more than 100,000 people who had been receiving Medical Assistance, and tens of thousands more this year have lost that insurance, which covers those who are disabled, poor or gravely ill – many of them children. Advocates for the clients and even some Welfare Department employees have questioned the process that was used to scale back coverage, and now the Obama administration is asking, too. In a letter to state officials, the Department of Health and Human Services asked for evidence that the benefits were properly withdrawn. In the letter, Anne Marie Costello, director of the EDITORIAL BOARD

eligibility division for HHS’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said many of the cases were closed because applicants failed to provide the proper forms “at a time when DPW has reported that it was unable to process within appropriate timeframes all the information beneficiaries had submitted.” It seems plausible, if not likely, that beneficiaries caught in that Catch-22 might have done everything necessary to retain coverage but lost it anyway. The sooner the Welfare Department can complete its reviews and notify federal officials, the better for recipients who deserve to have benefits reinstated. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

MALLARD FILLMORE

Charter school exemptions make for an uneven education GOV. TOM Corporate and the Republican majority in the Legislature continue to prove that, for them, “education reform” is just code for “privatization.” Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though there’s no meaningful evidence supporting the underlying theory – that competition from the private sector will improve education for all. The problem in this case is that, in their rush to create a more “competitive” system, they dropped the “competitive” part. Take charter schools, a fine idea that has worked well in some sites, including our sole Luzerne County brick-and-mortar example: Bear Creek Community Charter. These are public schools free of many state constraints, but lest you think these are “public” in the same way your local school district is “public,” keep in mind that many charters are run by, or in affiliation with, private companies. But not all charter schools excel. The latest example: The state Department of Education recently announced that a virtual (online) Philadelphia-based charter high school surrendered its charter after an investigation determined it was not delivering “core educational programs to students.” Yet when the Legislature passed and Gov. Corporate signed a law creating a new, tougher – and clearly better – teacher evaluation system for public school teachers, it exempted charter schools. “Yes,” Harrisburg’s nabobs essentially said, “we want to make sure all teachers are sharp, except charter school teachers. We’ll just assume they’re good.” When the Legislature passed and Gov.

MAIL BAG

MARK GUYDISH COMMENTARY Corporate signed a law that requires the Department of Education to compile an annual list of “low-achieving” public schools (the bottom 15 percent in state reading and math test results), they again conveniently exempted charter schools from the calculations. “Oh,” the reformers effectively opined, “We surely want the public to know which schools aren’t up to snuff ... except, of course, charter schools. We’ll just assume they would never be in the bottom 15 percent.” As a Monday article I wrote noted, if you look at the combined percentage of students in each school that scored proficient or advanced in math and reading, a whopping 61 charter schools would be “low achieving.” This matters because the “low-achieving schools” idea is part of the new “Educational Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit” program. Businesses get to write off up to 90 percent of contributions toward scholarships for students who live in the “attendance zone” of a “low-achieving school.” If a student meets generous household income guidelines ($60,000 for a single-child family this year), he/she can get a scholarship to attend any other school, public or private. If the student is leaving a low-achieving school, that district loses the state subsidy for that student after one year. Note, however, that the “attendance zone” rule means a student already could be attending a private

school and get a state subsidy (via the tax credit) to keep attending it simply because he happens to live in the zone of a low-achieving public school. This could preclude a poorer student who actually attends the low-achieving school from getting that scholarship. But ... you know ... let’s just assume ... And here’s the most glaring example of how uneven the playing field will be: Private schools that get all that money courtesy of tax credits need not meet a single state mandate foisted upon public school districts. No required state tests for the student benefiting from the tax credits, no evaluation of the teachers paid courtesy of those tax credits, no calculation of whether those schools are “low achievers.” I’ve long supported the Education Improvement Tax Credit program, which allows businesses to write down taxes by donating money for scholarships to private schools. It’s a smart way for the state to support those schools. But the new “Scholarship” tax credit goes beyond that with the “low-achieving school” list. It puts those private schools in direct competition with school districts for state money; one gets it through direct payments, the other through tax credits – both are at the expense of taxpayers. If the state holds school districts to one standard and charter and private schools to another, then the state already has given the charters and private schools straight-A report cards without a test. This is no “competition.” It’s playing craps with loaded dice. Mark Guydish can be reached at 829-71 6 1 or email mguydish@timesleader.com

s of now, Scranton and three cities in California are bankrupt. Ask yourself this: If Republican President George W. Bush got his own Treasury secretary, in a matter of hours, to get more than $1 trillion of taxpayers’ money to bail out the scoundrels on Wall Street, why can’t the taxpayers money be used, now, to help these cities? Use your head. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney says reduced taxes on the rich will produce jobs. Well, we have had reduced taxes for more than a decade: Where are the jobs? In fact, right now, business is “sitting” on more than $2 trillion! Maybe if Romney and other millionaires would not avoid U.S. taxes by having Cayman Islands tax-avoidance schemes and Swiss bank accounts, our deficit would not be as bad – each of the past 10 or more years we constantly have lost that money, while the working class pays on all its hard-earned money.

The middle class having money to spend is the engine of our economy, not low taxes on the rich. Jack Donner Alexandria, Va.

Voter fraud does exist; ID law will help stop it

I

t gets tiresome hearing people complain about the voter ID law that recently was enacted. Liberals have grown so used to the idea of entitlements that now they

DOONESBURY

believe they are entitled to voter fraud, which so often in the past has tilted elections in their favor. This will no longer occur. In Washington state, in 2008, Gov. Christine O. Gregoire, a Democrat, seemingly stole her election through voter fraud. U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., apparently stole his election through voter fraud, actually winning with some 200-plus votes from felons serving their sentences at that time. President Richard Nixon lost his first election for president to then-Sen. John Kennedy through voter fraud in the infamous Chicago districts. Voter fraud is not investigated in elections that are not close; hence, the cry that it never happens. This is an out-and-out lie and can be shown by the above examples. To receive health care, as well as to book passage on a plane, you must show picture ID. Why, then, should you not have to show a picture ID to prove you are who you are to cast your vote – the most prized right we have in this country? Voter ID will eliminate voter fraud. James U.

Officials delay zoning change

Bus ‘ghost riders’ alleged

Supervisors decide they need additional time to research previous change.

By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

BUTLER TWP. – The township supervisors voted Tuesday night to table action on an ordinance involving a zoning designation change for 1.338 acres of property along state Route 309 at Balliet’s Corners. The supervisors, after meeting in executive session, decided they needed more time to research an action that allegedly occurred in 1982-83 that resulted in the parcel being changed from suburban-residential to commercial. The ordinance is intended to rectify what was stated as a previous error and an improper designation on prevailing township zoning maps. But Supervisor Chairman Brian Kisenwether said that because of possible legal implications, the supervisors needed to do more research before voting on the zoning change ordinance. The Balliet’s Corners parcel drew public comment generally opposed to its designation as commercial because of what was stated as traffic hazards, conflict in zoning in conjunction with adjoining real estate and a possible threat to underground water reserves. After receiving this commentary, the supervisors announced they were tabling a vote until another public hearing scheduled on Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. The supervisors, however, did approve two other proposals. One involves the adoption of the 2009 International Property Maintenance Code and, the other, a flood plain management ordinance. They also adopted amendments to the animal control and open burning ordinances. In the case of open burning, attorney Don Karpowich, solicitor, said fines have been increased for offenders to $25 for a first offense, $100 for a second and $300 for a third. He added that fines will also imposed for township residents who allow their pets to run at large without restraint. Supervisor Ransom Young cast a dissenting vote on the purchase of a bucket truck from Service Electric Cablevision for $8,500 and the appointment of Edward Warner, 309 Refuge Drive West, Sand Springs, to serve on the planning commission, succeeding Mahesh Trivedi, who recently resigned. Young said the bucket truck isn’t needed because a vehicle of this type is readily available from neighboring municipalities. He said the money could be better spent on improvement projects. On Warner, Young said public notice of the post being open was lacking. Accordingly, Young contended, no opportunity was afforded for anyone else to apply. Kisenwether argued instead that Wagner is not only qualified but provides an opportunity for representation on the commission for someone who hails from the Sand Springs development.

Edward Brominski told fellow Luzerne County Council members Tuesday night he received information that county transportation authority bus drivers were logging nonexistent “ghost riders” to boost government funding based on ridership. Brominski said during Tuesday’s council meeting the information came to light because drivers allegedly stopped marking nonexistent riders when they became disgruntled about the authority’s installation of cameras in their buses, which they viewed as invasive. He said the ghost riders were allegedly logged as senior citizens because they present cards that don’t have to be swiped by drivers. Other riders feed money into a box or present bus passes purchased in advance. Brominski said two bus drivers, a passenger and both a present and former authority board member discussed the allegation with him. At least one of these individuals asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation and another governmental entity to investigate, he said. Authority Executive Director Stanley Strelish, who wasn’t at the meeting, said he never heard of the allegation and is confident it has no basis. He said ridership is one of several components used to deter-

mine funding amounts, and the passenger count has a minimal impact. He vehemently denied bus drivers were ever encouraged to pad passenger counts. “That was never a conversation anywhere,” Strelish said. Strelish said cameras facing drivers were installed within the last year because of assaults on drivers in other parts of the country. He said he never received any complaints about the cameras from drivers and can’t fathom why any would object to something designed to protect them. Strelish said the authority keeps detailed records on ridership and revenue and will release its records for any scrutiny. Ridership is up overall, but sometimes fluctuates without explanation, he said. “None of this was ever brought up. If individuals, particularly a board member, went to a council member, maybe they should have come to the authority itself first so we could investigate,” Strelish said. County council members agreed to ask authority representatives to attend Tuesday’s work session to discuss the matter. Councilman Stephen A. Urban

said Brominski has an obligation to present the names and information to the FBI and said council could exercise its home rule charter powers to summon the witnesses to answer questions. Brominski said someone else already reported the matter to the FBI. Council members agreed to see what information is gathered Tuesday before taking further investigatory action. Brominski encouraged other council members to table a $559,632 county allocation to the authority needed as a local match to obtain state and federal funding. The other council members voted to proceed with the allocation, saying they didn’t want the authority to miss an approval deadline and lose the funds. In other business, council members agreed to introduce an amendment to the administrative code expanding the county’s nepotism definition of domestic partners to include the opposite sex. The amendment, which must be formally adopted at a subsequent meeting, also eliminates a controversial requirement for employees to file an affidavit disclosing domestic partners. Urban proposed removing all references to domestic partners from the code, but Stephen J. Urban and Harry Haas were the only other council members who supported his suggestion.

Property owners decide if they want to participate. Municipalities must agree to the submissions because local governments own and maintain the sites after the properties are demolished.

The county submitted another 87 properties for $10 million in buyouts in a second application

the Boston Globe dealing with Romney’s finances and business record that Wasserman Schultz said “should be important to voters in this year’s election.” “Well, it’s important because it gives us perspective on the type of economic philosophy he would bring to the presidency at such a make-or-break moment for the middle class,” Schultz said. Schultz noted that Romney maintains he wasn’t involved in Bain in 1999 and 2000, when Bain shut down an Indiana paper factory after laying off hundreds of workers, but pocketed a large profit for itself. “But now we know that’s simply not true,” she said. Other news organizations have reported Romney was at most an absentee owner of Bain

after 1999. Republican National Committee spokesman Ted Kwong issued a brief statement in response to Schultz. “The Obama campaign is peddling false, cynical attacks in order to distract from their own record of giving taxpayerfunded payoffs to Democrat donors while leaving middle-class families with layoffs,” Kwong said. “Although the Obama administration’s political pals are ‘doing fine’ with the taxpayers’ money, it’s middle-class workers who are still left struggling in the Obama economy.” Also attending the Schultz press conference: state Rep.

Plymouth Township, which handled its own applications, has submitted requests for more than 40 buyouts, township Supervisor Gale Conrad has said. Nescopeck borough sought approval for five buyouts, borough secretary/treasurer Stacie Kachurka said Tuesday. Also Tuesday, the authority voted to publicly seek companies to handle collection of the levee fee. The Don Wilkinson Agency’s levee fee collection contract expires at the end of the year, Broze-

na said. The company recently came under fire for failing to send out fee delinquency and pre-lien notices required by its contract. Brozena said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has started repairing damage to the Wyoming Valley flood control system caused by September’s record flood. The Army Corps is currently drilling relief wells on the land side of the levee base in south Wilkes-Barre to help control water seepage, he said. The federal government is paying for the repairs, estimated between $2 million and $3 million, including work on the Market Street flood gates and levee.

A halo over the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno’s head was removed from this campus mural on Saturday.

Shine worn off Paterno brand The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Joe Paterno’s name is losing its luster, whether it’s the tent city outside Beaver Stadium where students camp out for prime football tickets or the name associated with his alma mater’s football coach job. “Paternoville” is out, swapped for “Nittanyville” on Monday. So respected was Paterno that another university — Brown, the late coach’s alma mater — had attached his name to its coaching job. That too ended. In a matter of months, the once unimpeachable Paterno name has become an albatross rather than an honor. The tainted reputation results from a scathing report by former FBI director Louis Freeh that concluded Paterno helped cover up child sex abuse allegations against former assistant Jerry Sandusky. Brown University, in a statement, said that not only had it removed Paterno’s name from its head football coaching position and a student award, but it was also reviewing whether to remove him from the school’s athletic hall of fame, too. Paterno graduated from Brown in 1950 and was inducted to its hall of fame in 1977. The Freeh report has even tarnished the bronze statue of Paterno that had been a rallying point for students in the months since Sandusky’s November arrest touched off a scandal as notable for its breathtaking allegations as its place: Happy Valley. On Tuesday, a small plane pulled a banner over State College reading, “Take the statue down or we will.” The plane is licensed to Air America Aerial Ads of Genoa, Ohio. A person who answered the phone at Air America declined to give his name or identify who paid for the flight. Federal Aviation Administration records show the agency grounded a plane from the same company after it towed banners taunting Tiger Woods during the 2010 Masters tournament. Nike took Paterno’s name off a child care center on its corporate campus on Thursday, the same day the Freeh report was released. Company founder Phil Knight — whose rousing defense of Paterno at a memorial service after his death drew thunderous applause — said in statement that “it appears Joe made missteps that led to heartbreaking consequences. I missed that Joe missed it.” The halo that had floated above Paterno’s head in a State College mural was removed Saturday. In its place the artist added a blue ribbon in support

RESPONSE TO NCAA

(AP) -- Penn State said Tuesday it will respond within days to the NCAA’s demand for information as the governing body decides whether the university should face penalties — including a possible shutdown of its storied football program — in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Penn State President Rodney Erickson said he doesn’t want to “jump to conclusions” about possible sanctions after the head of the NCAA declared the socalled death penalty has not been ruled out. The NCAA is investigating whether Penn State lost “institutional control” over its athletic program and violated ethics rules. The probe had been on hold for eight months while former FBI Director Louis Freeh conducted an investigation on behalf of the school’s board of trustees. Freeh’s 267-page report, released last week, asserted that late football coach Joe Paterno and three top officials buried allegations against Sandusky, his retired defensive coordinator, more than a decade ago to protect the university’s image. Sandusky was convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period. He awaits sentencing. Meanwhile, a judge has set an Aug. 16 court date to hear oral arguments on pretrial motions in the case of two former Penn State officials charged with perjury and failing to report suspected child sexual abuse, Dauphin County Court officials said Tuesday. Former university athletic director Timothy Curley and former university vice president Gary Schultz are awaiting trial on charges they lied to a grand jury investigating Sandusky and did not properly report suspected child abuse.

of child abuse awareness. And a Connecticut middle school said it would paint over its own mural of Paterno. Although there was some negative reaction to Paterno immediately after Sandusky’s arrest — the Big Ten dropped Paterno’s name from the conference championship trophy where it had been next to that of Amos Alonzo Stagg, who won almost 100 fewer games — the pace has picked up since the Freeh report was released. The Paterno statue outside Beaver Stadium has been a point of much contention. Critics have called for the statue to be taken down after the Freeh report concluded that Paterno was aware of a 1998 allegations against Sandusky — in contrast to his grand jury testimony and an interview given after his firing — and that he was involved in the decision to not report a 2001 incident to the authorities even after his superiors had decided to. not to screen this film.” Iben said one corporate sponsor requested its logo be removed from promotional media, but neither it nor other donors requested their donations be returned. Iben said the Kirby Center is “well within its rights” to make decisions that are deemed appropriate and safe for the continued success and support of its organization. “They are a wonderful group of people and incredibly dedicated to the center,” she said. “I certainly am not insensitive to the nature of the current climate surrounding Penn State and the scandal that has all but swallowed it up whole.”

Deciding game forced

Just 10 days away from start of games, London has been criticized for arrangements. By DANICA KIRKA and STEPHEN WILSON Associated Press

LONDON — London Games officials dismissed concerns Tuesday over a lost bus driver, a scramble for more security guards and some rain-soaked venues — embarrassments that had one tabloid newspaper headline using the Olympic rings to spell out the word “OOPS!” Organizers said some of the complaints were exaggerated and tried to put the best face on the unfolding security debacle, aswellasother concerns about the games, which start in 10 days. “Let’s put this in proportion,” London Olympics head Sebastian Coe told reporters. “This has not, nor will it, impact on the safety and security of these games. That, of course, is our No. 1 priority.” His efforts were undercut in Parliament, where the chief executive of the G4S security group, Nick Buckles, acknowledged that his company’s failure to recruit enough Olympic staff had embarrassed the entire nation. Some 3,500 British troops — including some just back from Afghanistan — had to be called in on short notice to fill the gap. Thousands more military personnel had already been assigned to the games. Buckles gave a groveling mea culpa on live TV as he was being questioned by angry lawmakers. “It’s a humiliating shambles for the country, isn’t it?” asked Labour lawmaker David Winnick. “I cannot disagree with you,” Buckles said. He was hard-pressed to explain why his company had failed to tell officials until only two weeks before the start of the games that its recruitment efforts had failed. Some U.S. security and law enforcement officials had privately expressed concerns as early as last year that there might not be enough personnel for the London Games. The FBI is sending about two dozen agents to London to work on Olympic security, according to two U.S. government officials. They spoke on condition of anoSee OLYMPICS, Page 4B

SWOYERSVILLE – The Nanticoke and Swoyersville Junior American Legion teams met three times before Tuesday. In the previous games, the teams combined for 12 runs; on Tuesday alone they totaled 19. Today they meet again in a rubber game of their five-game season series, and to decide the Wyoming Valley American Legion League championship.

JIM LITKE OPINION

Teaching an old dog new tricks

HE IS ONE of those guys people have in mind when they say “soand-so leads a charmed existence.” Phil Mickelson might have argued that point not too long ago, at least where the British Open was involved. But no more. As if Mickelson needed reminding, he crested a hill in the 17th fairway Tuesday at Royal Lytham to find his tee shot wasn’t nearly as disastrous as he had imagined. Sure, it was only a practice round, but considering how much money was being wagered by the lefty and playing partners Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, and Nick Watney, a break that good was likely to pay dividends. That was confirmed once Mickelson’s caddie, trailing by several strides, located the boss’ ball. “That’s what I’m talkin’ about!” Jim “Bones” Mackay howled. It had come to rest inches from the right edge of the last of seven deep bunkers lining the left side of the fairway. If Mickelson had been a right-hander, he would have had to step into the sand, dig in his cleats and hit the approach from a lie with the ball some two feet above his own. Instead, he quickly set up on the starboard side of the ball and sent an 8-iron zooming to within a dozen feet of the flag. The value of that routine par at 17 became clear some 20 minutes later, when Mickelson and Fowler strolled off the 18th green with fatter wallets, wider grins and — wouldn’t you know it? — moments ahead of yet another downpour. He’s learned to play overseas There was a time when Mickelson found very little to like about playing on this side of the pond. Having grown up in San Diego, he wasn’t crazy about the weather. As a player whose strengths are flighting the ball with different trajectories and delicate spins, he seemed unsettled by the unyielding turf and the need to play the ball along the ground. That much was apparent from his track record at the Open, easily his worst among the game’s four majors. “Aside from the success you had last year, how would you describe how your attitude toward this championship has changed?” Mickelson was asked. He considered the question a moment. “It’s evolved favorably, I think. It took me a while to be able to understand what it meant to get the ball on the ground. ... It didn’t really click until six, eight years ago. “Now,” he added, “when it gets really bad weather, my misses in crosswinds are not as bad as they used to be, because it’s on the ground and out of the wind a lot quicker. And that’s made me really enjoy and appreciate playing links golf and playing in the elements.” Last week, Mickelson even cut short a family vacation to play in the Scottish Open, where he finished tied for 16th. “He’s finally getting the whole bad-weather thing,” said Butch Harmon, Mickelson’s swing coach. “He likes to bomb the ball, take risks and, until the last couple years, he was stubborn about changing. “But the second last year at (Royal) St. George’s reinforced some of the work we’d been doing and now, the worse the See LITKE, Page 6B

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Sabathia returns, Yankees roll on The Associated Press

NEW YORK — CC Sabathia carried a shutout into the seventh inning during his sparkling return from the disabled list and the steamrolling New York Yankees got a three-run homer from Andruw Jones in a 6-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night. Sidelined since June 24 because of a groin strain, Sabathia (10-3) silenced a Toronto lineup minus All-Star slugger Jose Bautista, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day. The good news for Bautista and the Blue Jays is that the wrist injury he sustained Monday isn’t as severe as initially feared, so he hopes to be back before long. Sabathia’s successful return overshadowed an encouraging outing by Toronto’s Brett Cecil (2-2). Angels 13, Tigers 0

DETROIT — Mike Trout had another four-hit game for Los Angeles, including a 430foot homer that was part of an early power show in the Angels’ 13-0 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Trout, Mark Trumbo and Albert Pujols all homered off Jacob Turner in the first two innings, and Alberto Callaspo and Kendrys Morales went deep later in the game. It was the fourth four-hit game of Trout’s spectacular rookie season. The Tigers were shut out for the first time in 159 games, a franchise-record streak that began last July 17 — exactly a year earlier to the day. White Sox 7, Red Sox 5

BOSTON — Kevin Youkilis hit his first homer at Fenway Park as a visitor, driving a three-run shot over the Green Monster to lead Chicago to its eighth win in 11 games.

It’s been less than a month since Boston traded one of its most popular players to Chicago and the Fenway fans cheered “Yooouk!” loudly for the second straight night — even as he rounded the bases to put Chicago up 6-2 with his homer off of Jon Lester (6-6) in the fourth inning. The White Sox are 10 games above .500 (50-40) for the fourth time this season. Philip Humber (4-4) made his first start in a month and settled down after allowing two runs in a shaky first inning. Rays 4, Indians 2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Carlos Pena and Luke Scott gave Tampa Bay an early lead and Matt Moore won despite control issues. Moore (6-6) allowed two runs and three hits, but walked five in five-plus innings. The rookie left-hander was coming off a five-walk — in 4 2-3 innings — loss at Cleveland on July 7. Pena hit a two-run homer and Scott had an RBI triple off Josh Tomlin (5-6) to give the Rays a 3-0 first-inning lead. Tomlin gave up four runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. Mariners 9, Royals 6

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Justin Smoak and Michael Saunders each hit two-run homers and the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals 9-6 Tuesday night. Every Mariners starter had at least one hit. Jesus Montero went 3 for 4 and drove in two runs. Smoak homered with Montero aboard in the three-run first inning. It was the second straight game Smoak homered in the first. Montero’s double scored Casper Wells with the first run.

Pitcher gone wild helps Nats top Mets The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Pedro Beato threw a wild pitch with the bases loaded in the 10th inning that allowed the winning run to score, and the Washington Nationals rallied for a 5-4 victory after blowing a late lead Tuesday night. The Nationals fell behind twice after leading 2-0 going into the ninth. Mets pinchhitter Jordany Valdespin hit a three-run homer off closer Tyler Clippard. But Danny Espinosa’s single off Bobby Parnell in the bottom half sent it to extra innings. Josh Thole’s RBI double put the Mets up 4-3 in the 10th before Washington came back again. Reds 4, Diamondbacks 0

CINCINNATI — Johnny Cueto showed no signs of being bothered by a finger blister during six shutout innings, and Ryan Ludwick hit a three-run homer that sent Cincinnati to its first victory without Joey Votto. Votto had surgery earlier in the day to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, sidelining the former National League MVP for up to a month. Cueto (11-5) threw 105 pitches, giving up four hits and four walks.

home with his staff’s road ERA sitting at 4.85 — thirdworst in the majors. Zito (8-6), who came in with a 5.19 road ERA, answered Bochy’s call by allowing only three hits and one walk with four strikeouts in seven innings. Marlins 9, Cubs 5

CHICAGO — Carlos Lee hit a grand slam and the Florida Marlins beat the Cubs 9-5 on Tuesday night, giving Ozzie Guillen a win in his first game back managing in Chicago. Lee’s slam against Travis Wood highlighted a five-run fifth and tied him with Jimmie Foxx and Ted Williams for seventh on baseball’s career list with 17. Omar Infante also homered and had three hits, giving him 17 in 36 at-bats at Wrigley Field. Hanley Ramirez also went deep in the game to back a strong start by Anibal Sanchez (5-6). Brewers 3, Cardinals 2

MILWAUKEE — Francisco Rodriguez picked up a save on his first night as Milwaukee’s new closer, Rickie Weeks hit a mammoth home run and Randy Wolf won his first game since April 30 as the Brewers beat the St. Louis Giants 9, Braves 0 Cardinals 3-2 on Tuesday.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L July 18 1882 — Ambidextrous pitcher Tony Mullane of Louisville pitched with both hands in a major league game at Baltimore. Normally a right-hander, Mullane switched to the left hand in the fourth inning. He eventually lost 9-8. 1912 — The Chicago Cubs had 21 hits in 11 innings but still lost to the Philadelphia Phillies when Gavvy Cravath stole home. 1927 — Ty Cobb of the Philadelphia Athletics doubled off the glove of Harry Heilmann for his 4,000th hit. 1948 — Pat Seerey of the Chicago White Sox hit

four home runs in a 12-11, 11-inning victory over the Philadelphia A’s in the opener of a doubleheader. Seerey hit two mammoth shots off Carl Scheib, one off Bob Savage and the game-winner off Lou Brissie in the top of the 11th. 1962 — Bob Allison and Harmon Killebrew of the Minnesota Twins each hit grand slams in the first inning of a 14-3 rout of the Cleveland Indians. 1970 — Willie Mays bounced career hit number 3,000 through the left side of the infield off Mike Wegener in the second inning of the San Francisco Giants’ 10-1 romp over the Montreal Expos. 1987 — New York’s Don Mattingly tied Dale Long’s 31-year-old major league record when he hit a home run for the eighth consecutive game in the Yankees’ 7-2 loss to the Texas Rangers. 1998 — Donnie Sadler’s first major league home run was the first of Boston’s record four two-out homers in a 9-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers. In the seven-run fourth inning, Darren Lewis, Nomar Garciaparra and Mo Vaughn followed to break the AL record of three held by six teams. 1999 — With Don Larsen on hand to help celebrate Yogi Berra Day at Yankee Stadium, David Cone pitched a perfect game. Cone dazzled the Montreal Expos, throwing the 14th perfect game in modern history to lead the New York Yankees to a 6-0 victory. 2001 — Roger Cedeno was 4-for-5 with a double, triple, two homers and six RBIs in Detroit’s 12-4 win over the New York Yankees in the second game of a day-night doubleheader. 2006 — Atlanta became the first team since the 1930 New York Yankees to score 10 or more runs in five straight games following a 14-5 victory over St. Louis. The Braves have scored 65 runs during their offensive explosion that included two 15-run games. Today's birthdays: Allen Craig 28; Torii Hunter 37.

Budner helps Horlacher win The Times Leader staff

Nicholas Budner went 2-for-3 at the plate and pitched five innings to earn the victory on the mound as Bob Horlacher defeated Hanover 8-4 on Tuesday in the Tommy’s Pizza Corner 9-10 Tournament. Hughey Murphy had two hits including a three-run triple in the top of the sixth to secure the win. Zach Strazdus closed out three batters in the bottom of the sixth to earn the save. Jordan Stefanski recorded two hits for Hanover while Aaron and Connor Hummer each had hits Hanover. Connor Hummer was credited with the loss on the mound. West Side 11, Mountain Top 10 DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER

The umpire watches as Jakeb Tomolonis (11) of South Wilkes-Barre is congratulated by teammates as he steps on home plate after hitting a three-run home run in the bottom of the fourth inning to take the lead during Tuesday’s game with Green Ridge.

what they needed to do,” said Green Ridge manager E.J. Nalevanko. “It’s tremendous to be advancing.” With the win, Green Ridge advances to take on Back Mountain American, today at 5:30 p.m. at the Back Mountain Little League field. Gilmartin and Casey’s timely drives came just after Vince Cimini scored on a throwing error and chased South Wilkes-Barre’s starting pitcher Jakeb Tomolonis from the game, wiping out South Wilkes-Barre’s original attempt to come back from an early deficit. Green Ridge held the original lead in the game after the top of

the second inning, again thanks to a strong display of hitting from Gilmartin. Gilmartin – who finished 2-for-2 with two RBI, two walks and two runs scored – clouted a double to the fence in right field on one hop, scoring Matt Vaughn. Anthony Morrow’s RBI infield single scored Gilmartin and a theft of home by Joe Walsh one batter later had Green Ridge in front 3-0. South Wilkes-Barre put a run on the scoreboard in the bottom of the same inning when Ryan Gilgallon scored from first on a dropped fly ball to right field and had the lead two innings later when Tomolonis hit a deep round-tripper to left of his own, scoring Paul Fox and Gilgallon along the way for a 4-3 advantage. The home run was easily the only blemish in an otherwise fine performance on the mound from

Green Ridge’s Joe Doherty, who went all six innings allowing a paltry six hits that accounted for four earned runs. Doherty also struck out five and didn’t issue a walk, which certainly helped to keep South Wilkes-Barre at bay and give Green Ridge a better chance to come back. “Once they got down, you know, we lost the first game of the tournament 18-2 but then we beat Old Forge and we just beat a very tough South Wilkes-Barre team and I’m real proud of them,” said Nalevanko of his squad’s late-inning scoring. “They just didn’t give up.” After watching Green Ridge’s Cimini and Noah Nalevanko add an RBI groundout and an RBI single, respectively, Gilgallon had a hand in South WilkesBarre’s final run of the game in the bottom of the fifth inning when his fly ball to right field

was lost in the sun by Green Ridge’s Jonothon Knight, allowing Josh Montalvo to score. Gilgallon was thrown out trying to stretch for third on the play, however, and South WilkesBarre couldn’t find a chance to score in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Yohan Blake wins 100 meters in 9.85 at Lucerne in warmup for Olympics By GRAHAM DUNBAR AP Sports Writer

LUCERNE, Switzerland — Yohan Blake warmed up for the London Olympics by finishing in 9.85 seconds to win the 100 meters Tuesday in his first competitive race since beating Usain Bolt twice at the Jamaican Olympic trials. Blake was far from the fastest out of the blocks but powered through the field with legal wind assistance of 1.6 meters per sec-

G4S will pay for its mistake, saying it expects to lose between 35 million pounds and 50 million pounds ($54 million to $78 million) on the contract, which is about12 percent of its annual profit. Olympics minister Hugh Robertson said the deployment of soldiers at Olympic Park would give people “enormous reassurance.” Robertson, an army veteran, said athletes are “incredibly reassured to see the armed forces on the gate.” About 2,500 of the additional

I want to remain unbeaten and that’s what I am doing.” Blake chose the low-key Spitzen Leichtathletik meet to make what is expected to be his only appearance between the trials and the London Games. He is scheduled to open his

Olympic program when the 100 heats start Aug. 4. Blake lowered the Lucerne record of 9.86 set by fellow Jamaican Nesta Carter two years ago. “I got the meet record, which is wonderful,” Blake said. “I didn’t come here to run a quick time but it’s still a fast time. Not many guys run 9.85.” Only three-time Olympic champion Bolt (9.76) and 2004 Olympic winner Justin Gatlin (9.80) have run faster this sea-

son. There was still obvious room for improvement out of the blocks. “My first part was poor but, as you can see, the last part is always ‘The Beast’ part,” said Blake, referring to the nickname given him by his training partner, Bolt. Blake posted a personal best and the top time in the world this year (9.75) to beat Bolt in Kingston last month.

Scranton/WilkesBarre got a much-needed insurance run in the bottom of the seventh as Russo roped an RBI single to left scoring Cole Garner and giving the Yankees a 4-2 lead. Charlotte clawed its way back into the game getting two runs in the top of the eighth on a Connor Jackson two-run double to right field, knotting the score at 4-4. The Knights took a 5-4 lead in the top of the ninth on an infield

single to second by Tyler Kuhns. Jim Gallagher scored from third and Kuhns just beat out the throw allowing the winning run to score. Adam Warren got the no decision for the Yankees despite throwing 5 2/3 innings allowing just two runs on nine hits, striking out five and walking three. Charlie Shirek got the no decision for the Knights, allowing four runs on seven hits, striking out nine and walking none in 6

2/3 innings. Ryota Igarashi got the loss for the Yankees, while Donnie Veal earned the win for the Knights. Daniel Moskos picked up the save for Charlotte. The Yankees and Knights take the field again tonight at 7:05 for game three of the series at Frontier Field. Nelson Figueroa (7-2, 3.92) gets the ball for the Yankees, while Pedro Henandez (0-0, 3.75) gets the nod for the Knights.

Outside Parliament, hundreds of London cabbies ignited new traffic jams as they protested their exclusion from special Olympic lanes set up across the city’s roads for buses and cars carrying athletes and other VIPs. As the world’s athletes flew into London on Monday — the first big day of Olympic arrivals — a few buses carrying them from Heathrow Airport took a wrong turn and got lost. “OOPS!” headlined The Sun tabloid, using two of the interlocked Olympic rings in the word. “First day. First arrivals. It’s going to happen,” said Jayne Pearce, head of press operations. Still, the lost buses — one car-

rying Americans, the other Australians — touched a nerve. From the very start, London organizers have feared repeating the transportation woes of the1996 Atlanta Olympics, where one of the biggest problems was hiring bus drivers from outside the city who didn’t know their way around. Coe urged optimism, despite a Twitter storm that erupted when U.S. hurdler Kerron Clement took to the social networking site to express frustration with what he said was a four-hour bus ride from Heathrow to the athletes village. Coe said Clement’s bus journey actually took 2 1/2 hours and most athletes experienced no problems in reaching the village. “Apart from a misturning and a couple of tweets, we’re in pretty good shape,” Coe quipped. “The majority of athletes got in in good shape and on time.

Tyler O’Kane also scored three runs and stole three bases for West Side. Steven Zeske and Jacob Schusta each added a double, RBI and run for West Side. Carson Canavan chipped in a single and scored a run. Schusta earned the victory on the mound. Connor Olenginski recorded two doubles and two RBI for Mountain Top. Mike Geroski also added two hits and two RBI. Brad Patura and Stew Caladfe chipped in two hits and an RBI apiece. Garrett Swank also recorded a double while Keefer Hoover added a single.

And it gave life to the Swoyersville team that appeared to be finished. “We showed a lot of heart,” Swoyersville manager Bob Aten said. “Problem was we dug too big of a hole for ourselves right off the bat. Down 8-0, down 11-1, you’re not going to win many games when you put yourself in that hole.” Four more runs came home from Swoyersville in the bottom of the sixth as Swoyersville trimmed the lead to11-6. Joey Gavenonis (2-for-4) laced a double to score a run and Keaton Dolan added an RBI-single to highlight the scoring. Once again, the game looked to be over in the bottom of the seventh with two outs, no runners on base and Nanticoke holding a five-run lead. But Swoyersville showed more fight bringing up the possible game-winning run to the plate in the frame. Tyler Se-

Kruczek also had an RBI single. Colin Mackiewicz and Brandon Bukofski had one hit apiece for Nanticoke. John Farris, Ian Bayo, Quinn Masewicz, Joey Sholtis, Jake Weincoski and Mike Brown each recorded hits for Swoyersville.

Two offensive stars hit DL, while 2 pitchers return Bautista and Votto sidelined the same day Sabathia and Halladay returned. By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer

Joey Votto needs knee surgery, and Jose Bautista is out with a wrist injury. Two of baseball’s best hitters were sidelined in a matter of hours Monday, one night before a pair of top pitchers returned to the mound. Roy Halladay and CC Sabathia both came off the disabled list Tuesday — and the way things are shaping up this summer, pennant races all over the majors could be decided by which stars stay healthy. The Cincinnati Reds will try to maintain their slim lead in the NL

Central without Votto, the 2010 NL MVP. He was scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, keeping the first baseman out of the lineup for three to four weeks. “It is in my best interest and in the best interest of the team to do it now so that I can be healthy during the last two months of the pennant race,” Votto said in a statement. The slugger hurt his knee while sliding into third base on June 29 in San Francisco, but continued playing and started for the National League in the All-Star game last Tuesday. A medical exam Monday detected the tear. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Votto didn’t have an MRI earlier because Votto didn’t think he needed one. Votto is batting .342 with 14 homers and 49 RBIs. He leads the

NL in doubles, walks, on-base percentage and extra-base hits. “We’ll see what we can do internally, initially,” Jocketty said. “But it’s going to be difficult to replace Joey Votto.” The Reds lost their first game without him, 5-3 to Arizona on Monday night. Todd Frazier filled in at first base, but manager Dusty Baker said he will also use Miguel Cairo. The team will “mix and match depending on offensive and defensive matchups,” Baker said. The challenge is to stay in contention until Votto gets back. “Look at the Dodgers. They lost Matt Kemp, but they weathered the storm. It’s early enough that we can weather the storm.” It appears the Toronto Blue Jays will have to try to do the same without Bautista for a while. The AL home run champ the

grabbed his wrist, dropping into a crouch outside the batter’s box. “Through the course of completing the swing he felt a little bit of a popping sensation,” Toronto manager John Farrell said. “It’s a big blow.” After the game, the Blue Jays said Bautista didn’t break a bone, but he has a tendon injury. Toronto faced Sabathia on Tuesday night, in his first start since June 24 following his initial trip to the disabled list with the Yankees. The Phillies are ecstatic about getting Halladay back Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. They just hope it’s not too late.

Wiggins ready for tough stage Overall leader is not concerned about today’s mountain challenge.

Osborne will move to management position and be replaced by Chad Norris.

By GREG KELLER Associated Press

PAU, France — Tour de France leader Bradley Wiggins has dismissed the two upcoming Pyrenees mountain stages as nothing special. But the “Circle of Death,” as Wednesday’s linkage of four brutal climbs is known, plus the race’s last summit finish atop the 5,300-foot Peyraguedes on Thursday will test the nonchalance Wiggins showed when asked if he fears riding up such famed mountains as the nearly 7,000-foot Tourmalet in the next two days. “It goes uphill like all the others doesn’t it?” Wiggins said Tuesday at a news conference, adding that Wednesday’s stage “isn’t any more difficult than any other stage we’ve done up to this stage, really.” Wiggins sought to play down the importance of the coming rough ride through the mountains forming France’s border with Spain. “It’s just another day on the Tour really,” he said. “We try not to get carried away with emotion, it’s all about performance and we’re very businesslike at this stage.” Wiggins’ Team Sky is stacked with strong climbers like Norwegian champion Edvald Boasson Hagen, Australian pair Richie Porte and Michael Rogers, and above all Kenyan-born Christopher Froome of Britain to give him reason to be confident, but other questions remain. Will the “King of the Alps” Pierre Rolland dominate the Pyrenees, or will the man from Down Under, defending champ Cadel Evans, go over the top in a lastditch move to save his Tour dream?

Bradley Wiggins, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, rides in the pack during the 15th stage of the Tour de France.

Rolland received his nickname in the French press after his win at the La Toussuire ski resort last week followed up victory in the l’Alpe d’Huez in 2011. He must continue his efforts in the Pyrenees if he wants to catch Swedish rider Frederik Kessiakoff in the battle for the polka-dot jersey that goes to the Tour’s King of the Mountains. Evans, meanwhile, must find a slope somewhere on the four category-1 and three beyond-category climbs which riders tackle on Wednesday and Thursday that is steep enough to launch an attack on Wiggins to begin eating into his 3:19 deficit to the Briton in the yellow jersey hunt. Evans, Rolland and the 154 other riders left in the 99th Tour will have plenty of time to ponder the upcoming one-two punch that is the 16th and 17th stages of the Tour — as the Pyrenees mountains are visible on the horizon from Pau, the medieval city where the race pauses for its last rest day.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carl Edwards’ crew chief stepped down Tuesday, 19 races removed from a disheartening defeat in last year’s championship race. Bob Osborne cited undisclosed health concerns in his decision to relinquish the No. 99 Ford, which has been stuck in a slump since Edwards ended last season tied with Tony Stewart in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The title went to Stewart on a tiebreaker. “I have had the pleasure of working with Carl Edwards for the past nine years and, during that time, my focus has been building a championship-caliber program,” Osborne said in a statement. “At this time in my life, however, concerns with my health have necessitated that I change my role within the organization.” Osborne, who guided Edwards to 18 wins and two runner-up finishes in the points, will move to a seniormanagementpositionwith Roush Fenway Racing. He’ll be replaced as crew chief by Chad Norris, who has been with Roush since 2005 as a crew chief in the Nationwide and Truck Series. “This transition is not an easy one, but I’m thankful to have the full support of Jack (Roush), Carl and the entire organization. I also have every confidence in Chad Norris, and I look forward to working with him as we continue to pursue a championship in 2012,” said Osborne, who asked for privacy from the NASCAR community.

races of that season. But Edwards is stuck in a 52race losing streak dating back to Las Vegas last season, and at 11th in the point standings he’s in danger of missing the Chase this season. Edwards has only worked with Osborne at the Cup level. “I cannot say enough good things about Bob Osborne,” Edwards said. “I’m so thankful for what he’s done for me as a driver, and he is without a doubt one of the smartest guys in the sport. I’m also appreciative of the fact that he’ll continue to be a resource for me and our team as we focus on these final races.” Norris since last season has led Roush Fenway’s testing program, and has been crew chief for Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.’s limited Sprint Cup Series schedule and Trevor Bayne’s partial Nationwide Series schedule. Norris led Bayne to his inaugural Nationwide Series win at Texas Motor Speedway in November of 2011. “We’re very fortunate to have Chad Norris as part of our organization to take over for the No. 99,” Edwards said. “I’ve known Chad for a long time and he is a fierce competitor. We’ve got our work cut out for us over the next seven races, and I’ve got every confidence Chad can lead our team to where we need to be.”

Police: WR Bryant attacked mom Steelers get Max

The Dallas Cowboy surrendered on Monday and was released on $1,500 bond. By NOMAAN MERCHANT Associated Press

DALLAS — With training camp just two weeks away, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is in trouble again. The talented wide receiver was arrested Monday after being accused of attacking his mother during an argument, hitting her arms and face. He faces a charge of family violence, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. The Cowboys had no comment on the latest stumble by Bryant since the Cowboys drafted him out of Oklahoma State in 2010. Bryant had spent this offseason watching film, working on his conditioning and staying out of trouble off the field. Others noticed he was in better shape and more focused. The 23-year-old Bryant surren-

dered Monday after police in DeSoto, south of Dallas, issued a warrant. Police said Angela Bryant called 911 Saturday to complain her son was assaulting her. Police arrived to find her with a swollen wrist and thumb and bruising on her upper arms, police Capt. Ron Smith said. She

told police she had grabbed Dez Bryant’s shirt and he forcefully knocked her arms away, Smith said. Police say he hit her on the face with a ball cap and pushed her in the chest. Bryant was released a few hours later without talking to detectives, Smith said. His attor-

ney, Royce West, said Bryant posted $1,500 bond. Smith declined to say Tuesday what caused the argument. “I don’t know what the exact startup was, what caused everything,” Smith said. “I just know that his mother got involved and got injured.” Police plan to send their case later this week to Dallas prosecutors, Smith said. West said Tuesday that he was still investigating the circumstances of Saturday’s incident. One of his primary goals, he said, was to “make certain that the family heals.” “I know that Dez loves his mother,” West said. “I know his mother loves him.” West declined to say if Dez and Angela Bryant have spoken since Saturday or what may have caused their argument. Drafted by the Cowboys in the first round, Bryant entered the league having his last year of college nearly wiped out by an NCAA suspension for lying about having dinner with Deion Sanders.

Cops tackle Seahawks’ Lynch on DUI charge This is the RB’s third brush with the law, following two incidents with Buffalo. By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was seen weaving from lane to lane on Interstate 880 in the Oakland, Calif., area on Saturday morning, leading to his arrest for suspicion of drunken driving. An incident report released by the California Highway Patrol on Tuesday described Lynch driving a Ford Econoline van and having two near collisions with two other vehicles driving in adjacent

The New York Times initially reported the Knicks’ decision, citing an unidentified person briefed on the situation. One sports consultant said the adjustment to the offer sheet was a stroke of genius by Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. “The Rockets deserve a lot of credit for the way they’ve gone about this,” said Marc Ganis, president of Chicago-based SportsCorp. “It was extremely intelligent — with an assassin’s touch.” The Knicks, though, gave Lin his first shot, picking him up after the Rockets waived him. He was briefly demoted to the developmental league, recalled and finally got his chance when coach Mike D’Antoni put him in with the Knicks floundering at 8-15. Lin scored a career-high 25 points in a 99-92 win over New Jersey Nets and “Linsanity” was born. Lin had slept on teammate Landry Fields’ couch the night before, still refusing to get his own place as he headed into that week, knowing the Knicks would have to decide whether to cut him or guarantee his contract for the rest of the season. But Lin proved more than just an overnight sensation — he had 28 and 23 points in his first two

conditions, the more conservative his game gets. If Phil is going to win one of these,” Harmon added, “it will be because he’s playing them a lot differently from the way he used to.” Mickelson’s play on links courses is hardly the only thing that’s changed during his career. He won a PGA Tour event as a 21year-old amateur, but another 13 years passed before Mickelson won his first major. There’s no way to know how many more he might have won had Tiger Woods not come along to dominate what should have been Mickelson’s

lanes. Authorities say Lynch was pulled over around 3:20 a.m. PDT Saturday in Emeryville and showed signs of intoxication. After multiple field sobriety tests, Lynch was arrested and booked into jail, where he was cited and later released. Lynch took a chemical test. Teresa Drenick, director of communications for the Alameda County district attorney’s office, said Lynch was scheduled for an Aug. 14 preliminary court appearance and that any decision on charging Lynch will be made by then. Lynch came to Seattle during the 2010 season in a trade with Buffalo and after his career with

the Bills stalled. Lynch ran into problems off the field in Buffalo, but stayed clear of trouble with the Seahawks until now. He pleaded guilty in March 2009 to a misdemeanor gun charge in Los Angeles. He was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and three years’ probation, and was suspended three games by the league for violating the NFL personal conduct policy. That was Lynch’s second runin with the law following a hitand run-accident in Buffalo in May 2008. In the earlier incident, he pleaded guilty to a traffic violation and admitted to driving away after striking a woman with his car near Buffalo’s downtown bar district.

NBA starts, and then scored a career-high 38 in a 92-85 victory over Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. The stock price for Madison Square Garden Inc. surged on the production and popularity of the team’s international star. Lin also made the Sports Illustrated cover in consecutive weeks, only the 12th athlete to hold that distinction since 1990. On Tuesday, Lin had more than 829,000 followers on Twitter. The more opponents saw Lin, though, the more they seemed to figure him out as the season wore on. He went 1 for 11 with eight turnovers in a humbling, nationally televised loss in Miami and the Knicks dropped their first six games in March. D’Antoni resigned in midMarch and Lin hurt his left knee less than two weeks later. The Knicks revealed on April 1 that Lin needed surgery to repair a meniscus tear and would miss six weeks. The Knicks made the playoffs behind surging Carmelo Anthony, but bowed out to Miami in the first round. The Rockets, meanwhile, missed the postseason for the third straight year and have spent the offseason completely rebuilding their roster. Houston has been trying to put together a package of assets and draft picks to offer Orlando in exchange for disgruntled All-Star

center Dwight Howard. In the process, the Rockets lost the unrestricted free agent Dragic to Phoenix, then traded Lowry to Toronto in exchange for a future firstround pick with lottery protection. With no true point guard left on the roster, the Rockets turned back to Lin. The Knicks may have shown their hand when they brought back Raymond Felton in a sign-and-trade deal with Portland. Houston, meanwhile, jumped at the chance to reacquire their popularity in China, where Yao Ming became a larger-than-life figure. Many Rockets landed lucrative shoe contracts with Chinese companies on Yao’s coattails and Rockets’ games drew massive television ratings there. David Schwab, who specializes in matching brands with celebrities as managing director at Octagon First Call, said re-signing Lin was undeniably a gamble. He started only 25 games last season before he was sidelined with torn cartilage in his left knee. “There’s a risk he gets hurt, there’s a risk he’s not a star, there’s a risk that he’s not at the same level where he was when he played,” Schwab said. While Lin is an American success story, Schwab thinks he would reopen in-roads the team established during Yao’s eight seasons (2002-11).

prime. And yet, you could argue he’s aged more gracefully than his grandest rival and last year, according to Forbes magazine, even put more money in the bank. He’s also part of a group bidding to buy his hometown baseball team, and not just because he loves throwing the ball around and perhaps has designs on becoming the Padres’ batting-practice pitcher. “There were a number of reasons. But I really like the people I’m involved with,” Mickelson said. “And I think they’re just as competitive as I am.” The quick smile and swashbuckling style have been tempered by his recent battle with psoriatic arthritis, as well as

those of his wife and mother against breast cancer. That competitive edge, though, hasn’t been dulled. “It’s important as a player to be able to keep your mind on the task at hand when you’re on the golf course and not let it waver,” he said. “Certainly for a couple of years it was difficult to do. But right now, you know, everybody is doing great. I mean, my wife and mom are doing terrific. They’re just really in a good spot. My health has been really good. ... “I feel like there’s no reason,” he said, “that I shouldn’t be able to play some of my best golf.” Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers’ young offensive line now has a veteran to lead it. The Steelers re-signed tackle Max Starks to a one-year deal on Tuesday, hoping his surgically repaired knee is healed and his leadership can help one of the NFL’s youngest lines provide better protection for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Terms were not disclosed, but Starks gives the Steelers insurance if rookie Mike Adams isn’t quite ready play with the first team. The 30-year-old Starks has started 79 games with Pittsburgh since being selected in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft. His time appeared to be over after a neck injury cut short his 2010 season. He was a salary-cap casualty last summer but returned in October after a series of injuries decimated the line.

The Tennessean cited sources that Britt had swelling in his left knee.

Flood forces dentists to cross bridge

Table games revenue soars

Gamblers lost $57 million at table games in Pennsylvania’s 11 casinos in June, a 15.5 percent increase compared to June 2011. Revenue was $664 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30, an increase of 30.8 percent. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs had table games revenue of $3.4 million in June and $43.1 million for the 20112012 fiscal year, an 11.7 percent increase from 2010-2011. Mount Airy Casino resort was close behind, with revenue of $3.3 million in June and $41.1 million for the year, 9 percent over the prior year.

PITTSTON – The flood of 2011sounded alarm bells for West Pittston dentists John Costello and Anthony Polit. “It was a wakeup call to what could really happen, and how devastating flooding could be,” Polit said, reflecting on the 10foot surge of water that destroyed every piece of equipment in the dental practice and ravaged the clinic building on Luzerne Street. The flood also wreaked financial havoc, causing about $1.2 million in structural damages and equipment loss, only a portion of which was covered by flood insurance and FEMA relief grants. “We had (flood insurance) but not enough,” Polit admitted. “No one ever thought we would have 10 feet of water, so it didn’t cover 10 feet of water.” But the historic flood was also a “blessing in disguise,” Polit and his partner Costello said. Had the water not risen so high, they may have returned to West Pittston, rather than relocating one mile away to higher ground at 457 N. Main St. in Pittston, where the practice reopened eight weeks after the flood. Polit and Costello said they haven’t lost patients due to the flood – an achievement they attributed to aid from fellow dentists James Definnis, Dallas, and Shawn Casey, Pittston – who let them use their practice space at night while they were moving. The new location is close enough for former patients to access and “has actually opened up our possibilities,” Costello said, as it has attracted new patients from the Scranton area. On Tuesday, the dentists were aided in their recovery effort by a $100,000 low-interest flood recovery loan from the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance, a nonprofit disbursing funding from the federal Economic Development Administration and Appalachian Regional Commission to aid flood recovery. Polit and Costello is the first business to qualify for such a loan, which comes with a 1 percent interest rate and seven-year repayment window. The loan will help pay for the replacement of equipment destroyed in the flood, including operating equipment, X-rays that can display images on monitors above a patient’s head and a CT scanner. “The advantage is that we were in business for 14 years up to this point,” Polit said. “Now we have state-of-the-art equipment. We went from 1997 to 2012, so it’s the highest standard that we can provide at this point. The dentists also pointed out they have not given up on West Pittston. They have rebuilt the building their clinic formerly occupied and it is now available for rent.

Union move at Conn. casino

The United Auto Workers Union is trying to organize about 1,400 table games workers and poker dealers at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn., nearly five years after organizing employees at nearby Foxwoods Resort Casino. Ted Feng, assistant regional director of the union, said Tuesday that workers want to win pay and benefits at least as good as workers at unionized Foxwoods. He said employees approached the UAW, which began a campaign July 6 to sign up workers.

Another tough quarter, another reminder for Goldman Sachs that it’s not just its reputation that’s under attack. On Tuesday, the New York bank said its net income in the April-throughJune period fell 11 percent to $962 million, or $1.78 per share. That compares with $1.09 billion, or $1.85 per share, a year ago. The earnings were higher than the $1.17 per share that analysts were expecting. Revenue fell 9 percent to $6.63 billion compared with the same period a year ago.

AN FRANCISCO — As a top executive at Google for the past 13 years, Marissa Mayer played an instrumental role in developing many of the services that have tormented Yahoo as its appeal waned among Web surfers, advertisers and investors. Now, Yahoo is turning to its longtime nemesis to fix everything that has gone wrong while Google has been cementing its position as the Internet’s most powerful company. Mayer, 37, began tackling the imposing challenge Tuesday when she took over as Yahoo’s fifth CEO in the past five years. The surprise hiring indicates Yahoo still believes it can be an Internet innovator instead of merely an

Tom Corbett said in a statement Tuesday. The move will save taxpayers at least $1 million, according to the Office of the Budget.

Yahoo’s second quarter results announced Tuesday underscore the challenges facing Marissa Mayer as she tries to turn around the Internet company.

delighting people,” Mayer said during a Monday interview with The Associated Press. Like her predecessors, Mayer will have to come up with an effective strategy to compete with the juggernaut that Google has become and the increasingly influential force that Facebook is turning into as more people immerse themselves in its social network. “If she can pull this off and turn around Yahoo, it will make her legacy,” Gartner Inc. analyst Allen Weiner said of Mayer. This will be the first time that Mayer has run a company as she steps out of the long shadow cast by the Google’s ruling triumvirate — co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, along with Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt.

Any reading below 50 indicates negative sentiment about the housing market. And the index hasn’t reached that level since April 2006, the peak of the housing boom. Even so, the latest builder survey reflects growing optimism among builders that new home sales are on an upswing again after hitting the lowest point in a half century last year.

In July, builders say they observed the best sales levels since February 2007. Their outlook for sales in the next six months also brightened to the highest level since March 2007. Turnout by prospective buyers also returned to a level not seen in five years. Cheaper mortgages and lower home prices in many markets have made home buying more attractive. Many economists believe that housing construction could contribute to overall economic growth this year for the first time since 2005.

There have now been 13 days this year with high temperatures at or above 90. Tuesday’s 97 is indeed rare for our area and will probably end up being the hottest temperature this year. Today will again be hot and even more humid and soon the radar will be showing showers and thunderstorms moving in. Keep alert, some of the storms may become severe with damaging winds and hail. A windshift will deliver cooler weather here on Thursday. More showers could arrive by Friday, and by then we’ll have highs only in the 70s. The last time that happened was on June 26. Back in 1988, we had a record of 27 days at or above 90.

CHEF’S CORNER RAY FEIST

EXECUTIVE CHEF, WYOMING VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB

Asian sauce adds sizzle to pork chops I GUESS YOU could say I’m like the guy you used to know. Then a couple of months go by and you bump into me in the supermarket. I’m very happy to have come back from the desert in one piece and be able to write again. Everyone should be wearing their cut-offs by now and flexing their grilling muscles. One of my favorite items to grill is pork. The charred flavor of the meat is outstanding. I’m going to be using boneless porkloin chops. Look for ones with some internal and external fat. Pork today is very lean, so take caution not to overcook. The Asian barbecue sauce will act as a marinade and a basting sauce. Bone-in chops or tenderloin also may be substituted with excellent results. The potato salad also has an Asian spin and will be a great accoutrement on a warm summer day. For this recipe you will need: 4 pork chops, 1/2 inch thick MCT PHOTO

There are plenty of marinades on the market to get steaks ready for the grill, but it’s easy to make your own for unique flavors.

Become the master of marinades

I

By SUSAN M. SELASKY

Detroit Free Press

’ll bet plenty of juicy steaks are getting tossed on the grill this summer. • And when it comes to grilling steaks, my preference is to marinate them. It helps add flavor and tenderize the meat. • There are scores of bottled marinades now available in myriad flavors. But it’s just as easy to make your own. Marinades are simply made up of an acid (wine, vinegar, citrus juice), an oil (just about any kind will do; you don’t need a pricey olive oil) and any kind of seasoning. Try not to use too much oil because it will cause flare-ups.

Other liquids such as beer or soy sauce also can be used. You can marinate steaks for an hour or up to 12 hours, depending on the size and cut. (You can place steaks in a marinade and freeze them, too.) Big, less tender cuts of meat, such as briskets and roasts, benefit from longer marinating. Cuts like skirt steak (used for making fajitas) need a longer marinating time so they become tender. Marinades do not penetrate all the way through the steak. But try not to marinate them too long because the meat could turn mushy. Marinating steaks (or other foods) in a plastic seal-

able bag works best because the marinade completely covers them. The bag also takes up less room in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to grill, remove the steak from the marinade and discard. Unless you boil it for at least 3 to 5 minutes, never reuse marinade that has come in contact with raw meat. Let the excess marinade drip off the steak and then grill it as desired. It’s best to start the steak off on medium-high heat to achieve a nice crusty sear. Once seared, move it to a cooler part of the grill to finish cookSee MARINADE, Page 3C

This flank-steak salad made with fresh arugula, tomatoes and avocado is one mammoth of a meal.

Steak tops summer salad By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor

Summer is prime time for salads and grilling. So why not bring them together in one delicious dish? One of my favorite warmweather meals involves just that. I pile my dinner plate with the makings of a robust salad — a mass of greens, sliced carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, often even leftover grilled vegetables from the night before. Then I thinly slice whatever meat I tossed on the grill and use that to top the salad. A sprinkle of vinaigrette, and it’s good to go. For this salad, I went with my favorite grill-friendly steak — flank. It takes well to seasoning rubs, cooks quickly and slices

nicely. For the seasoning rub, I went with a simple blend, the highlights of which are fennel seeds and cumin (but you could substitute whatever seasonings you prefer). Be warned: this is no frilly salad. To stand up to hot steak, a salad must be robust. Plus, the point here is for it to be a meal, not a side. •••

ASIAN BARBECUE SAUCE 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup sesame oil 1/4 cup salad oil 1/2 cup ketchup 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 jalapeno, minced 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar 3-4 green onions, thinly sliced Combine all ingredients into a handled pot on stovetop. Watch what you touch after mincing the jalapenos; it will burn. It takes one good time rubbing your eye to know that the oils stay on your hands. Cut off the root of the green onions and use every part except the very top. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes to combine the flavors. Let sauce cool and use 1⁄3 of it to marinate the pork chops for at least 12 hours and not more than 24. FAR EAST POTATO SALAD 1 pound chef’s (russet) potatoes 1 carrot, small dice 1 rib celery, small dice 1/2 red pepper, small dice 1/2 green pepper, small dice 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, destemmed and sliced 3 green onions, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon garlic, minced 1/4 cup salad oil 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup peanut butter 2 tablespoons sesame oil 1/4 cup salad oil 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 small bunch parsley, chopped Clean the chef’s potatoes. Start them off covered in a pot of cold water. Cook until just under fork tender. Drain and let cool. Take all the vegetables and sauté them in a pan with the salad oil for 3-4 minutes. Let cool. Add the honey, soy sauce, peanut butter, rice wine vinegar, mustard, and parsley in a bowl. Slowly whisk in the oils until smooth. Cut the potatoes into a medium to large dice. Add the potatoes and cooled vegetable mixture to the dressing. Bingo! The longer it sits the better it will be. Cook pork chops on medium heat. Use 1 ⁄3 of the barbecue sauce to baste them while grilling. The sauce has some sugar in it so watch flare-ups and over-charring on the grill. When chops are cooked, place on plate, add potato salad, grab the remaining barbecue sauce and insert a tasty cold beverage into that glass. Don’t invite too many of your friends over or they will want to come back.

FENNEL-CUMIN FLANK-STEAK SALAD Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 1 teaspoon whole fennel seeds 1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds 1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds 1 teaspoon garlic powder See SALAD, Page 3C AMANDA HRYCYNA/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon minced or crushed garlic 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper TOPPING 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 cloves garlic, peeled, minced 1 small onion, peeled, finely chopped 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes 1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves 1/2 cup sliced mixed green and kalamata olives 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese Cut several slits on the fat side of the strip steaks so they don’t curl when grilling. Place the steaks in a plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients. Pour half of the marinade over the steaks in the bag. Seal bag and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate the other half of the marinade. Preheat the grill to mediumhigh. Remove the steaks from the marinade and discard the marinade. Let steaks sit at room tem-

perature while you make the topping. In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add the onion and sauté until soft. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, olives and feta, and sauté 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Oil the grill grate. Place the steaks on the grill and grill 5 minutes or until you get good grill marks. If desired, turn on an angle and cook 1-2 minutes to get nice cross-hatch marks. Turn and continue grilling until the steak is cooked to desired degree of doneness. It’s best to have an instantread thermometer. For mediumrare, the internal temperature should range from 125 to 130 degrees. Cover with the topping and drizzle with reserved marinade, if desired.

mustard, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Grind well, then rub the mixture over both sides of the flank steak. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes and garlic, toss well, then set aside. Divide the arugula between 4 serving plates. Top with the bell pepper and avocado. Crumble a quarter of the goat cheese over each plate of arugula, then sprinkle with dried cranberries. Using an oil-soaked paper towel held with tongs, oil the grill grates.

Add the steak and grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain, then heap a quarter of it on top of each salad. Spoon a quarter of the tomatoes, as well as any liquid in the bowl, over each salad.

Parents talking to kids about sex should be an ongoing conversation Dear Abby: How do you tell a young girl about sex, and what’s the best way to go about telling her? My niece is 12 and hasn’t had her first period yet. But kids grow up real fast in our neighborhood. You’d be shocked if you knew how young they are when they start fooling around. This is a difficult subject to discuss, but I know that our talk will have to happen pretty soon. She is closer to me than to her mom. When I was growing up, the word “sex” wasn’t mentioned, and one of my cousins got pregnant in her sophomore year of high school. I don’t want that same mistake made again. Please help.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE I heard you have a book about this. How can I get one? — Almost Ready in Louisiana Dear Almost Ready: Kids grow up fast all over these days — not just in your neighborhood. “The talk” with your niece should have started long ago as part of an ongoing discussion because young people are maturing earlier than they did years ago. Your niece should be told that there will be changes in her body and that they are normal. She should be assured they are nothing to fear. You heard correctly that I publish a book-

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

let about what teens should know about sex (and drugs) that covers a variety of important topics. Adults and parents sometimes find the subject difficult to discuss. My booklet was written to help “break the ice” and begin the discussion more easily. It can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Teen Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL, 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. It could be very helpful to you if you review it before starting the discussion with your niece so you can prepare beforehand to answer her questions or guide the conversations. Important topics that are included are “How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant?” “How old

CRYPTOQUOTE

must a boy be before he can father a child?” “What time of the month is a girl 100 percent safe?” and “Can a girl get pregnant the first time she has sex?” In addition, there is a section on various sexually transmitted diseases and what to do if you think you may have one. It is important that they be treated right away, because not doing so can have lifelong consequences. Knowledge is power, and the more information your niece has, the better she can be prepared for making the decisions that lie ahead of her. But most of all your niece needs to know that becoming a woman is a cause for celebration — and I hope you will present that to her and make it clear. Dear Abby: I have a lighted doorbell at my front door. But nine out of 10

people who come here still knock rather than use the bell. Sometimes I don’t hear them, so then they’ll start pounding with a lot of force until they can get my attention. Why are people so stubborn? — At Home in Melbourne, Fla. Dear At Home: I’m not sure it’s stubbornness. They simply might not think to use it. However, I may have a solution for you. Post a sign over your doorbell that reads: PLEASE RING BELL! To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

GOREN BRIDGE WITH OMAR SHARIF & TANNAH HIRSCH PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Growth, by definition, is change. Staying the same simply isn’t an option for you, though you may feel slightly anxious about what shape your new life will take. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will fall in love many times, always with the same activity. This is how you know it’s a fine match for you and something you were surely meant to be doing with your life. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You touch people’s lives in ways you don’t really understand. Your spirit, the way you talk, the excitement you show when certain things are happening, it’s all registering in the mind of someone special. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When people think of you, the word “encouragement” comes to mind. To nurture others comes naturally to you. You’ll give a kindly prop to your friends and boost them in the direction they seem to want to go. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Life is an endless opportunity. So trust your decisions. They’re either wrong or right, but committing to them will feel better than going in halfheartedly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s easy to see where you’re blocked, but what can you do? Doing one thing you can do will be better than noting a hundred things that you can’t. Keep your focus right in front of you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t always get the chance to embody the qualities of honesty, bravery and loyalty in a big way that everyone can see. But you

will wear them in dozens of small ways today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s a special occasion coming up, and you might seriously consider doing something personal and artful to commemorate the moment. What you make with your hands you also make with your heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A famous song states that love makes the world go round. Scientists suggest it’s actually angular momentum that does the job, though few would disagree that love makes the ride more fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Being kind requires very little effort, though people can be so wrapped up in themselves that it helps to have a good example to remind them how to contribute to the world in a positive way. You’ll provide this today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It is not true that there is purpose and beauty in each thought you have. Some thoughts are rotten and ugly and probably popped into your head by mistake. Ignore them or shun them, and they’ll quickly go away. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your hands will be busy doing the work they were always meant to do: helping yourself and then helping others. You will touch someone’s life with your gift of timely assistance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 18). This year is marked by your desire to do what’s new and different. The next 10 weeks bring adventure. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 24, 38 and 18.

Any person claiming to be an heir-at-law of the decedent must, in addition to filing an appearance, present substantial credible evidence of heirship to establish his or her interest in the decedent’s estate. In default thereof, the Estate of Frank Wenzwic shall proceed on notice to the known heirs of the Estate of Frank Wenzwic. The following information is known about the decedent and his family members, which may be useful to establish the identity of decedent’s heirs. The decedent, who died on March 11, 2012, was a resident of the City of Elmwood Park in Bergen County, New Jersey. The decedent was born on November 17, 1927 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, to Frank Wengrzynowicz and Amelia Wengrzynowicz. The decedent was married to Jean Wenzwic, who died on January 10, 2002. The decedent is not believed to have had any children. The decedent had a sister, Regina Wenzwic, who died before attaining the age of eighteen (18) years. The following additional information is known about the decedent's parents and next of-kin: Decedent’s father, Frank Wengrzynowic, was a resident of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and died December 18, 1959.

Frank Wengrzynowicz is buried at Nanticoke Cemetery in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. For the purposes of locating potential heirs of decedent’s estate, we are specifically seeking the identity and whereabouts of Frank Wengrzynowicz’s siblings and the descendants of any deceased siblings (i.e., cousins of the decedent).
