As America’s midsection bakes, poor face life-and-death dilemma By JUAN CARLOS LLORCA Associated Press


WILKES-BARRE – About 15 children were playing Monday at the splashless Coal Street Park. As temperatures and humidity climbed, attendance at city parks dropped off as kids chose to stay in air conditioning or head to privately owned swimming pools. As boys and girls swung on swings and slid on sliding boards, the site of the city’s soonto-open splash pad sat idle. A fence has been erected around the site to keep children and adults from falling into the 6-foot hole that awaits a new vault for

It is not known what impact the former county controller’s death will have on the case.

Two lawsuits connected to Steve Flood’s actions as Luzerne County controller followed him to his death, but a controversial 2004 juvenile detention center trade secrets lawsuit against him was quietly discontinued in December, court records show. One of the pending suits Flood was filed by former county pension fund money manager ASCO Financial Group Inc. and its president, Donald Williamson, over statements made by Flood on a November 2002 radio program. This libel suit is scheduled for jury trial at 10 a.m. on Sept. 26 before county Judge Thomas Burke, according to court records. New Jersey attorney Craig Hilliard, who is representing ASCO, and Wyomissing attorney Kenneth A. Goodman, who represents Flood, could not be reached for comment Monday on what, if any, impact Flood’s death will have on the proceeding. Flood, 67, of Dorrance Township, died Saturday afternoon after suffering a second stroke. Kingston attorney Joseph Giovannini, who is assisting Hilliard, said Monday he believes the trial will proceed as planned because an oral deposition of Flood under oath may be presented in court. The suit alleges Flood made false and defamatory statements about Williamson and ASCO during a Nov.13, 2002, interview on a talk radio show hosted by Kevin Lynn on WILK radio. ASCO Financial and Williamson were among several county retirement fund money managers fired by Flood and other retirement board members in September 2002 as part of the fund’s reorganization.

Hanover Area considering solar power The school district could buy power at a lower rate, a consultant says. By MARK GUYDISH

HANOVER TWP. – Hanover Area School Board is considering going green with a solar array on a small hill outside the high school that, according to one consultant who talked at a work session Monday, could be built at no cost or risk to the district. Jane Heiple of Lyceum Group Inc. told the board an array could

be built through a “power purchase agreement.” An investor or company would pay construction and maintenance costs, while the district bought the power at a guaranteed rate for a set number of years, typically 15 to 20. If done right, Heiple said, the contract assures a lower rate than the district is paying now, and the rate rises more slowly than what commercial providers charge, so savings grow over time. Heiple said the average increase of electricity charges was about 5 percent per year while the business was heavily regulated, but that since government deregulation took hold, some are projecting

cost increases to hit 30 percent annually. Heiple said Power Purchase Agreements are particularly attractive to companies right now because the federal government offers tax credits and grants that can cover up to 50 percent of the cost. She noted a key incentive, which covers about 30 percent of cost, is set to expire in December. Stressing that all estimates are rough guesses until a company comes in and does more rigorous engineering research, Heiple said it looks as though the field where the array would be located could produce about 320 kilo-

watts. Neither she nor district officials knew how much the district currently uses, but Heiple said that would be below the maximum need. If the district opted to build such an array on its own, Heiple said a rough cost estimate would be between $1.2 million to $1.5 million. But building it through a purchase power agreement means the company contracted would assume all risks and responsibilities, including maintenance. The district would simply buy the power at the pre-set rates. The board could negotiate op-

tions at the end of the contract, such as having an option to buy the array or have the company come and remove it. The board took no action, but members generally voiced support for drawing up and publicizing a “request for proposals” that would invite companies to offer costs and contract terms for a power purchase agreement. The board would either have to call a special meeting to vote on doing that or wait until its regular August meeting. Mark Guydish, a Times Leader staff writer, can be reached at 829-7161.

Lehman Twp. disputes claim road work improper Luzerne County Conservation District rules are impractical and dangerous, official says.

By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

LEHMAN TWP. -- The board of supervisors announced Monday that the township received a compliance notice from the Luzerne County Conservation District regarding the way in which the township has been clearing the berm of the roads. On July 13, representatives from the district inspected the berms and noted the township

failed to provide effective erosion and sedimentation controls. Chairman Dave Sutton said the district is cracking down on all municipalities and is requiring corrective measures that aren’t practical and are dangerous. Sutton said the district is requiring the township to put up silt fences or line the berms with hay bales, which he said would pose a risk to motorists. Township crews have been clearing the berms to help control runoff and flooding for the past several weeks on several township roads. He said the board plans to discuss the matter with the district.

“We’ll try to explain that what they’re asking us to do isn’t practical,” he said. “It could cause a real safety issue.” Supervisor Doug Ide said crews from drilling company Encana are working to reclaim the exploratory natural gas well pad at the Salansky site on Zosh Road in Lake Township. Once the company finishes the work and truck traffic is gone from the area, the company will begin to repair the roads it damaged. The affected roads are Outlet, Meeker, Meeker-

Outlet, Slocum and Ide roads. The board opened bids for construction of a new roof for the municipal building. Only two bids were received which were from out-of-town contractors. Ark Builders Corp., of Allentown presented a bid of $37,730 and Spotts Brothers Inc., of Schuylkill Haven, sent in a bid in for $21,460. No local firms sent proposals for the job, despite advertising in The Times Leader and The Citizens’ Voice newspapers on two occasions, said Treasurer Al Cragle. The township engineer

will review the bids and make a recommendation. In other business, the board granted temporary permits to: • Lake Silkworth Volunteer Fire Department for its annual bazaar on the grounds of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church from July 29 through July 31. • Dallas Cross Country Booster Club for the Annual “Run for the Fallen” at Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus on Aug. 17. • Penn State Wilkes-Barre for its annual cross-country meet on Sept. 17.

Diocese removes Scranton-area pastor The Rev. Michael O’Leary allegedly gave alcohol to an underage adult and a minor. By STEVE MOCARSKY

SCRANTON – A Catholic priest has been removed from ministering as pastor of St. Michael the Archangel parish pending the outcome of an investigation into his allegedly providing alcohol to a minor. According to a statement released by the Diocese of Scranton, diocesan officials were informed on Sunday that the Rev. Michael O’Leary, a member of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, allegedly furnished alcohol to two individuals, including an underage

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Two men were charged with burglary and criminal trespass after police responded to a burglary in progress on Monday.

young adult and a minor. The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter is a Clerical Society of Apostolic Life in the Church, established by Pope John Paul II in 1988 to offer the Traditional Latin Rite of the Mass and the sacraments to the faithful. At the time the incident was reported, O’Leary was serving as pastor at St. Michael’s in Scranton, where Masses are offered in the Traditional Latin Rite. He has served in that capacity since January 2010. Diocesan officials have spoken with the parents of the two individuals and reported the matter to law enforcement. The incident was also reported to the appropriate superiors from the Fraternity of St. Peter.

“O’Leary has been removed from ministry and from St. Michael’s Parish pending the outcome of the investigation. Diocesan officials remain committed to fully cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation,” the statement said. The Rev. Eric Flood, North American District Superior for the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, could not be reached for comment on Monday. A supervisor with Scranton police did not immediately return a message Monday seeking more information. According to the diocese website, O’Leary was ordained in 1993. He had been residing at St. Michael’s Rectory, 1703 Jackson St., Scranton.

Jeremy Bevan, 23, of Cameron Street, Plymouth, allegedly fled the building and was arrested after a short foot chase, police said. The burglary victim was identified as Marion Nardone. • Steve O’Connor, of 300 Parkview Circle, on reported receiving harassing phone calls from an unknown male on Thursday. • John Kashuba reported that someone threw eggs on his 2009 Chevrolet while it was parked near 389 S.

Salem Twp. studying 32-unit townhouse project By TOM HUNTINGTON Times-Leader Correspondent

SALEM TWP. — The township supervisors and the planning commission are examining a proposed townhouse project that might be scheduled for construction in 2012 on a tract of land formerly known as the Bower farm off Bomboy Lane. It has been named “The Salem Township Project.” Marr Rentals LLC of Bloomsburg has submitted a plan for 32 units intended, according to information provided at a public hearing in May, for people 55 years old and older. Kristan Mertz, rental administrator for Marr LLC, said on Monday that the proposed project has met with initial adverse reaction from residents on East 7th, 8th, 9th and 9th streets and an amended plan has been prepared by S.M. Design Architects of Wilkes-Barre. The amended plan must still be submitted to and approved by township officials.

Mertz said the hearing attracted a capacity crowd, and for the most part, objection was raised about traffic, although concern was raised about the units being rented to people other than Marr’s stated clientele. Originally she said ingress and egress was designed for East 9th Street, but has since been changed to Luzerne Avenue. It was said that part of the motivation for the proposed project is a demographic study that suggests that there is a high number of seniors in the Berwick-Salem area who are in need of such rental housing and, in addition,

there are prospects of a third unit being constructed at PPL’s Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. According to plans presented to township officials, the intent is for one- and two-bedroom apartments designed for individuals and couples, not families. Each unit, Mertz said, will be one floor with an attached garage. She said rental rates will be between $750 and $950 per month. Nancy J. Marr, is listed as the president and owner of Marr Associates, as well as an associated firm, Heidorn Development.

LOCAL 2-month trial delay pains victim Louise Olenik is selling her house. Her niece is accused of taking her money. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – Louise Olenik thought Monday would bring some closure to a yearold case in which her niece was scheduled to plead guilty to taking $107,000 from the 79year-old. But now, Olenik, who had to put her home up for sale and sell all her belongings, has to wait another two months, after her niece’s attorney on Monday asked for a continuance in



scheduled proceedings. Olenik’s niece, Marisa Harlen, was scheduled to enter a guilty plea to one felony count of receiving stolen property after police said she began taking the money after assuming Olenik’s power of attorney. Harlen, 29, of Kingston, who was charged in September, said in November at a court appearance that she intends on

paying back the money to her aunt and will plead guilty because of a gambling addiction. “She’s waiting for me to die,” Olenik said Monday. “That’s what she’s doing. That was my first thought.” Olenik said Monday shortly after hearing the proceeding had been rescheduled to September that she thought some closure would come, but now she has to wait even longer. When reached Monday by telephone, a secretary for attorney Joseph Yeager, when asked about Monday’s continuance, said “no comment.” “I’m so furious, I can’t even speak. I’ll make it and she’ll spend her time in jail,” Olenik

said. Olenik’s home nurse, Michelle O’Neill, said Olenik began to cry after being told about the September court date. “It’s gonna be a bad day,” Olenik said Monday. “But, tomorrow will be better.” Most of Olenik’s belongings were sold last weekend in an estate sale at her Sondra Drive, Larksville, home. There is also a buyer for the house that was listed for sale in January for $230,000. Olenik said she put her home and belongings on the market because she is no longer able to afford the house and the 24-hour at-home nurse’s

aid she requires. Olenik said she and her husband, Edward, who died in December, worked their entire lives -- he as a carpenter, plumber and mechanic and she as a government employee. They saved their money and eight years ago bought the Sondra Drive house where they planned to live the rest of their lives. Olenik is now temporarily staying at her brother’s Harveys Lake home until she can move in with another relative in Tunkhannock.

Two killed in crashes identified By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – The Luzerne County Coroner’s Office has identified two of the three people who died as a result of crashes early Monday morning, including a Crestwood High School student. Coroner John Corcoran said 16-yearold Brian Madry died after a crash First reported at around1a.m.along 2:58 Lake Road in Fairview Township. p.m. timesleader Madry was a .com Crestwood lacrosse player, according to The Times Leader’s archives. There will be an autopsy at 9 a.m. today, Corcoran said. Madry’s age was one factor in the autopsy decision, but Corcoran would not elaborate on others. Shavertown resident Darren Spivey, 44, died from multiple traumatic injuriesafterhismotorcyclecrashedonEast Franklin Road in Kingston Township around 7 a.m. A third person, who died after a 1994 Dodge truck hit a tree along Route 115 in Buck Township about1mile north of Thornhurst Road around 5:30 a.m., had not been identified as of Monday evening, Corcoran said. He said all family members of the victim had not yet been notified. State police at Wyoming said the truck was northbound on Route 115, struck a road sign and spun into a nearby wooded area. Corcoran said three unrelated fatalities within a few hours in the absence of foul weather was atypical. “We’ve had it happen before, but it is unusual. Thank God we had the manpower and everyone was able to dedicate the time necessary,” he said.


WILKES-BARRE – The city has filed another appeal of a court ruling that scuttled its efforts to recoup part of a $500,000 settlement paid to a police officer who was injured when his cruiser was struck by another vehicle. The appeal, filed in the case of officer George Cole, is the latest in a long, convoluted legal battle the city has waged relating to access to assets that remain in Cole’s bankruptcy estate. Legal fees associated with the court battle have cost the city $78,000 as of June, according to copies of invoices obtained through a Right to Know request. The decision to file a new appeal was criticized by Cole’s attorney, Paul Perlstein, who contends it is pointless as the city has no legal basis to continue the





Cardinal Rigali resigns

ope Benedict XVI has accepted the resignation of Philadelphia P Archbishop Cardinal Justin Rigali

and will name a replacement as early as today, according to a published report. Michael Sean Winters, of the National Catholic Reporter, indicated the move could come as early as Rigali this week. The region includes the Diocese of Scranton. Church law mandated that Rigali submit his resignation on turning 75, which he did earlier this year. But it was not known if the Vatican would accept it. Rigali is the head of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, which has been rocked with recent revelations of child abuse at area churches. A grand jury report issued in February determined the archdiocese did not follow its own procedures when clergy members were suspected or found to have abused children. The grand jury criticized the archdiocese for leaving priests suspected of abuse in ministerial positions. Three priests and a teacher were charged this year by the grand jury with rape of children. A monsignor in the archdiocese was also charged with endangering children by transferring the suspected priests. The Associated Press PITTSTON TWP.

Signs of gang activity discussed FBI agents help parents identify indications of youth involvement. By STEVE MOCARSKY

DURYEA – Would you be concerned if you saw a picture of a lion wearing a crown or a pair of pitchforks drawn on your teenager’s notebook? How about a star with the number 5 or 6 in the center drawn on the wall in his or her bedroom along with some groups of letters? Some of these symbols – combined with other factors such as certain types of

behavior – could be signs that your child is in a gang or wants to be, said two agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Streets Task Force, who gave a gang awareness presentation to more than 50 area parents, residents and members of law enforcement Monday at the borough municipal building. Sponsored by the Duryea Neighborhood Crime Watch and the Duryea Police Department, the presentation was aimed at educating residents about gangs so they could help police if signs of gangs appear, said crime watch representative Trina Moss. Duryea Police Chief Nick Lohman said

he didn’t think Duryea has a gang problem, but he wants residents to be aware of signs of gangs in case they do crop up. “We’re directly in the middle between Scranton and Wilkes-Barre and there are a lot of drug arrests on Main Street. (Drug traffickers) think if they stay off the Interstate and take side roads, they can avoid state police. So we want to make our officers aware of the gang presence in the area, as well as officers from other communities,” Lohman said.

legal fight. The case focuses on the city’s right to attach a $500,000 settlement Cole received from the driver of the other car involved in a 1996 collision with his police cruiser. Cole never received the money, which has been held in escrow by the trustee appointed to oversee the bankruptcy filing Cole made in 2007. The city has been attempting to access that money to recoup part of the $450,000 in Heart and Lung benefits it paid Cole, who was off the job for nine years before returning to work in 2005. Pennsylvania law allows an employer to attach workers’ compensation benefits if an employee recovers money from the third party who caused the injury. There has been a dispute over whether that same provision applies to Heart and Lung benefits, which are similar to workers’ compensation. In 2009, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Heart and Lung and workers’ compensation were essentially the same, therefore city was entitled to seek the money. But that decision was

negated in May by a ruling issued by U.S. District Judge James Munley. Munley’s decision was based on a state Supreme Court ruling issued in January that said Heart and Lung benefits are not subject to attachment. The city had argued that ruling should not apply to Cole’s case because it was issued after Third Circuit decision. But Munley, citing a previous U.S. Supreme Court ruling in another case, said federal law states that he must base his decision on the state law that was in effect at the time the federal case was being reviewed. Cole’s case, which had been returned to Munley for a ruling in a separate matter by the Third Circuit Court, remained active. That meant the January ruling by the state Supreme Court did apply to Cole’s case, Munley said. The city appealed Munley’s latest ruling to the Third Circuit Court in June. Perlstein said the city continues to argue Munley did not have authority to negate the Third Circuit’s ruling, but has failed to cite any case law support-

ing its position. The U.S. Supreme Court ruling is irrefutable, he said, therefore he believes any further appeals are pointless. In a prepared statement released by the city, Thomas MacNeely, the city’s attorney, said he is confident the city will prevail in the latest appeal. MacNeely said the case is important to the city because it will set a precedent that could affect future cases. “Far from wasting the taxpayers’ money, the city is acting in the best interests of its taxpayers by not only asserting its rights to the funds that are at issue in this case, but also by protecting its rights in similar cases that may arise in the future,” MacNeely said. Perlstein disputed that. He said all future cases involving Heart and Lung benefits will be ruled upon based on the precedent set by the January ruling issued by the state Supreme Court. Cole’s case will have no bearing. “I understand they don’t like losing, but I don’t know what the basis of their appeal is,” Perlstein said.

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport will hold a live major aircraft accident response exercise on Saturday morning starting at 8:30. The drill will involve airport firefighters, emergency fire and medical equipment from surrounding communities and area agencies including the emergency management agencies of Lackawanna and Luzerne counties and the American Red Cross. The drill will have no effect on airline operations and all flights will operate as scheduled. The airport says that every effort will be exerted to make the drill as realistic as possible, including the use of sirens on emergency vehicles. This type of exercise is required at least once every three years by the Federal Aviation Administration. HERSHEY

Teens go to Honors Camp

Blake Donovan of Shavertown and Reid Skiro of Plains Township are among a group of 48 teenagers from across Pennsylvania at the State Police Academy in Hershey this week learning about state police operations and government through the annual Commissioner’s Honors Camp. The cadets, age 13-18, were selected from among more than 1,500 boys and girls who participated in local Camp Cadet programs last summer. Troopers teach Honors Camp cadets about criminal investigations, police skills, use-of-force and related topics. The Honors Camp continues through Saturday, ending with a graduation ceremony at the State Police Academy. KINGSTON

ACLU will observe W-B council

Roper responded to e-mails The planned visit was sparked from Mark Robbins, the Forty by disputes over public Fort man who spoke at last week’s comment at the meetings. council meeting alleging a kickBy BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – City council can expect to be observed at its next meeting. According to Mary Catherine Roper, staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union Pennsylvania office, the organization is looking for a volunteer among its active membership to attend the next council meeting. Council is scheduled to meet in work session Aug. 9 and in regular session Aug. 11. “Our volunteer won’t engage in any question-and-answer session.” Roper said. “He (or) she will be there just to be our eyes and ears and report back to our office.”

back and bribery scheme among the city’s contracted towing company, LAG Towing, Mayor Tom Leighton and the city’s police chief. Robbins contends he was overcharged for the tow. He also took exception to the way he and other people, such as Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former towing contractor, are treated at council meetings. When contacted Monday, Roper said she will write a letter to city council regarding complaints she has received. “The letter will be a lecture on ground rules,” Roper said. “Hopefully, they will get the letter before they enact new rules.” Council Chairwoman Kathy Kane is proposing changes to the protocol for public input at council meetings. She said she is con-

cerned about the decorum, or lack of it, at recent meetings. Kane said she has asked the city attorney to offer language for a resolution that would call for possible sanctions or penalties for people who show a pattern of disruptive behavior at meetings. “You can’t require people to act with decorum,” Roper said of Kane’s idea. “Adversarial conditions are never productive, but people – including those holding elective office – are protected by the First Amendment.” Roper said time limits on public comment are common with most public entities. “There are no rules that require elected officials to respond at all to public comment or that they listen attentively,” she said. “The only requirement is that they allow the public to speak.” Melissa Melewsky, media law counsel for the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association, said the

Sunshine Act contains guidelines for the way public meetings should be conducted. “Five minutes seems to the common time for public input,” she said. “But there should be some flexibility. If a person needs more time to air their concerns, depending on the circumstances, additional time should be granted. A stopwatch type of administration of that type of policy can be problematic.” Roper said a person addressing council should not be cut off because of what he or she chooses to talk about, unless it’s “completely unrelated to council business.” She also talked about the issue of name calling at meetings. Kadluboski was called “cupcake” by Kane and by Leighton on separate occasions. “I am sorry if the gentleman is insulted by being called a cupcake, but that’s not a legal matter,” Roper said.

Pa. mother blames poppy seeds for failed drug test The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — A western Pennsylvania woman filed a lawsuit claiming that local officials improperly seized her newborn son after a positive drug test resulted from her having eaten salad dressing containing poppy seeds. The lawsuit is the second in a year accusing Lawrence County Children and Youth Services and Jameson Hospital of improperly taking a newborn because of flawed drug testing. Eileen Ann Bower, a Lawrence County resident whose residence and age were not provided, gave birth to a son, Brandon, on July 13, 2009, according to a complaint filed Friday. She had received prenatal care and passed every drug test, and was stunned when a blood test at Jameson Hospital came back positive for

opiates, according to the lawsuit. Her son was taken into foster care three days after birth and returned 75 days later, according to the complaint, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. Bower said she had eaten a pasta salad made with Salad Supreme dressing with poppy seeds immediately before going into labor. She is suing the county agency, a caseworker and Jameson Health System for negligence, invasion of privacy and violation of due process. Messages left by The Associated Press for Lawrence County Children and Youth Services Director Jane Gajda and for Jameson Hospital were not immediately returned Monday. Litigation in a similar lawsuit filed by another mother last year is ongoing.

New commander takes over war Poll finds


obesity is a boomer problem

Gen. John Allen replaces Gen. David H. Petraeus By LAURA KING Los Angeles Times


So, what’s the buzz?

Beekeeper Wang Dalin is covered with tens of thousands of bees Sunday during a contest against another beekeeper in Longhui County of Shaoyang City, central China’s Hunan Province. Wang won in the hour-long duel with 57 pounds of bees covering his body, Xinhua News Agency said. LONDON

KABUL — A new U.S. commander, Gen. John Allen, formally took control of the war in Afghanistan on Monday, inheriting a nearly decadelong conflict that has cost the lives of at least 1,668 American troops. Allen succeeds Gen. David H. Petraeus, who is leaving to head the CIA. Petraeus had been in command for only a year, hastily taking the helm after President Barack Obama forced out Gen. Stanley McChrystal after Rolling Stone magazine reported intemperate comments by his staff about the administration’s civilian leadership. Petraeus’ tenure coincided

with the arrival of a “surge” of U.S. troops, and the military said the extra manpower yielded battlefield dividends, particularly in Afghanistan’s south. But senior commanders have described these gains as fragile and reversible, and some military officials have voiced fears that the American drawdown that began this month will leave remaining troops particularly vulnerable. Moreover, the danger level has steadily increased for Afghan civilians. The United Nations reported last week that noncombatant deaths jumped by 15 percent in the first half of the year. Insurgents were blamed for four-fifths of those fatalities, but many Afghans lay the responsibility for the

ritain’s tabloid phone-hacking scandal enveloped the London police force Monday with the rapid-fire resignations of two top officers and claims of possible illegal eavesdropping, bribery and collusion. U.K officials immediately vowed to investigate. Prime Minister David Cameron, feeling the political heat from his own close ties to individuals within Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, cut short his trip to Africa and called an emergency session of Parliament for Wednesday. U.K lawmakers today will grill Murdoch, his son James and Rebekah Brooks, the ousted chief executive of Murdoch’s U.K. newspaper arm, in a public hearing. A whistleblower on the phone hacking — former News of the World journalist Sean Hoare — was found dead Monday. Police said the death was being treated as unexplained but was not considered suspicious, according to Britain’s Press Association. TRIPOLI, LIBYA

Report: Meeting with U.S. The Libyan government spokesman said Monday that representatives of Moammar Gadhafi’s embattled government held face-to-face talks with U.S. officials on repairing ties between the nations. There was no independent confirmation that such a meeting took place and the United States has been a strident opponent of Gadhafi’s government throughout the civil war with rebel forces based in the east of the country. Spokesman Moussa Ibrahim told reporters in Tripoli that the purported talks were held Saturday but he refused to say where or which officials took part. ROCHESTER, N.Y.

Police: Bus tire blew out A tour bus likely had a front tire blowout just before it veered off a highway and overturned, killing two passengers and injuring 35 people, three seriously, state police and a company spokesman said Monday. The driver of the Niagara Fallsbound bus, which was carrying Indian nationals from Washington, D.C., lost control Sunday and ran off Interstate 390 into woods near Avoca, 55 miles south of Rochester. The bus driver, 58-year-old John Dinardo Jr., had no history of driving violations or criminal activity and his logbook was in order, New York State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico said. “There is no evidence of any excess speed, of any alcohol, of any driver fatigue or of any other violation,” D’Amico said.

Nuke safety changes urged Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko is urging his agency to decide within 90 days how to proceed with safety changes intended to improve the U.S. nuclear industry’s response to catastrophic events such as the tsunami that crippled a nuclear plant in Japan. A task force appointed by the NRC said last week that nuclear plant operators should be ordered to re-evaluate their earthquake and flood risk. The task force also recommended adding equipment to handle simultaneous damage to multiple reactors and ensuring electrical power and instruments are in place to monitor and cool spent fuel pools after a disaster.

GOP works on proposal President threatens to veto House bill even though Aug. 2 deadline for a debt-limit increase is looming. MCT News Service

WASHINGTON — With the deadline swiftly approaching for a deal to resolve the debt-ceiling crisis, the volume on Capitol Hill is about to be cranked up to “11.” House Republicans are pushing ahead with votes this week on a proposal backed by chamber conservatives that would raise the debt ceiling the required $2.4 trillion but would ultimately cap government spending at18 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product, require Congress to pass a balanced budget each year, and slash more than $110 billion from the 2012 fiscal year budget. The measure, which may pass the House by a majority vote but is expected to go nowhere after that, is either a final, defiant — albeit symbolic — stand by House

Republicans before acceding to a compromise on the debt ceiling or a formal show of intransigence that illustrates how difficult it will be for the House to sign off on any deal that includes President Barack Obama’s signature. The White House Monday wasted no time twisting the dial, with the president threatening to veto the House bill, even though there’s little chance it can pass the Senate. At any rate, it appears that with the Aug. 2 deadline for a debt-limit increase looming, things will slow down for a bit before they speed up. Republican leaders in the House and Senate have indicated that they want to fold in time for a floor debate in order to mollify conservatives on both ends of the Capitol, who are certain to squawk long and hard about any final deal that does not include the kind of significant spending cuts they seek. That doesn’t mean both sides have stopped talking. Senate leaders are working on a budget proposal that would cut $1.5 tril-

lion, while other reports have House Speaker John Boehner and the White House still working on some version of the “grand bargain” that could wipe out $4 trillion or more from the budget over the next decade but would also likely include some elements of entitlement-program reform as well as a some accord on modifying the tax code. Then there is the in-case-of-emergencybreak-glass option that was floated by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell last week, which involves a dose of procedural flim-flammery that would provide the White House with a debt-ceiling increase to stave off economic calamity while handing the GOP some political cover by voting on the record against the increases. But the attention, at least for the next couple of days, will fall on the House. The proposal being offered would force federal spending to fall below 20 percent of GDP by 2021, which would require massive spending cuts, likely including the Pentagon or entitlement programs or both.

WASHINGTON — Baby boomers say their biggest health fear is cancer. Given their waistlines, heart disease and diabetes should be atop that list, too. Boomers are more obese than other generations, a new poll finds, setting them up for unhealthy senior years. And for all the talk of “60 is the new 50” and active aging, even those who aren’t obese But it need to do more to stay fit, takes according to physical the Associated activity to Press-LifeGoesStrongshed .com poll. pounds. Most baby boomers say they get some aerobic exercise, the kind that revs up your heart rate, at least once a week. But most adults are supposed to get 21⁄2 hours a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity — things like a brisk walk, a dance class, pushing a lawn mower. Only about a quarter of boomers polled report working up a sweat four or five times a week. Worse, 37 percent never do any of the strength training needed to fight the muscle loss that comes with aging. Walking is their most frequent form of exercise. The good news: Walk enough and the benefits add up. Based on calculation of body mass index from self-reported height and weight, roughly a third of the baby boomers polled are obese, compared with about a quarter of both older and younger responders. Only half of the obese boomers say they are regularly exercising. An additional 36 percent of boomers are overweight, though not obese. The nation has been bracing for a surge in Medicare costs as the 77 million baby boomers, the post-war generation born from 1946 to 1964, begin turning 65. Obesity — with its extra risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis — will further fuel those bills. “They’re going to be expensive if they don’t get their act together,” said Jeff Levi of the nonprofit Trust for America’s Health. He points to a study that found Medicare pays 34 percent more on an obese senior than one who’s a healthy weight. About 60 percent of boomers polled say they’re dieting to lose weight, and slightly more are eating more fruits and vegetables or cutting cholesterol and salt. But it takes physical activity, not just dieting, to shed pounds. That’s especially important as people start to age.

Lawyer: Elaborate plans made for Casey Anthony’s safety Acquitted woman’s whereabouts after jail release are kept secret. By MIKE SCHNEIDER and MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — Casey Anthony’s whereabouts for her first week of freedom were a closely guarded secret Monday, known only to a select few as she tries to start a new life after being acquitted of killing her daughter. One of her lawyers says an elaborate plan was made to protect her from people with “the lynch-mob mentality.” Her options for starting a

new life could be limited by lawsuits pending against her, the scorn of multitudes who think she was guilty of the killing and a criminal record from her convictions for lying to police. She walked out of jail on Sunday, shortly after midnight. Her attorney Cheney Mason told NBC’s “Today Show” on Monday that he’s confident in Anthony’s safety, but declined to answer questions about where she was. “She’s gone, she’s safe and elaborate plans had to be made to keep the people away from her,” Mason said. “Her life is going to be very difficult for a very long time as long as there are so many people of the lynch-mob mentality.”


Casey Anthony, right, climbs into an SUV with her lawyer Jose Baez, left, after her release early Sunday.

Asked about how Anthony was paying for her fresh start, Mason replied that many volunteers have offered their help. Her notoriety could also help

her earn money. Experts who have helped other notorious defendants through rough times say she will have opportunities, but it won’t be easy for the 25-

year-old, who was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, but convicted of lying to investigators. In response to a question about whether Anthony planned to cash in on her fame, her lead attorney, Jose Baez told Fox News Channel late Sunday that she has “certain rights as an individual in this country.” Attorneys planned to handle Anthony’s affairs in a “dignified manner,” he said. “If she decides she wants to speak publicly about it, she’ll make that decision,” he said. Another former Anthony lawyer, Terry Lenamon, said he had no clue where she was headed, and that probably only a few people close to her knew.

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A city man will stand trial in November on charges he fired a gun and injured a person. Craig Hickson, 21, of Academy Street, will stand trial on Nov. 29 on four charges relating to the July 2010 shooting. Hickson, who is represented by attorney Joe Yeager, faces charges of discharging a firearm, possession of a firearm, and two counts of reckless endangerment. Assistant District Attorney Michael Vough is prosecuting the case. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley said no further continuances will be granted in the case. Police said a man in his 20s was arguing with others in front of 184 Academy St. and brandished a handgun. The suspect then fired shots towards 184 Academy St., a detached house. A bullet traveled through a front window and struck a 21year-old man in the head, police said. The victim, whom police did not identify, was taken to Wilkes-

Barre General Hospital for treatment. Police later identified Hickson as the alleged shooter. WILKES-BARRE – A West Wyoming man was sentenced Monday to six to 23 months in county prison on a robbery charge stemming from a home invasion in Larksville. Gary Jones, 18, of Shoemaker Street, was sentenced on the charge by Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello. He pleaded guilty to the charge in June. According to court papers, in August 2010, Jones and two other men conspired to break into the Washington Avenue residence and steal a video game system, video games, money and other items. A man at the home was assaulted during the robbery, police said. Ryan O’Donnell, 20, of Wyoming, pleaded guilty and was sentenced in March to six months probation on one count of receiving stolen property. Nathan Wynn, 18, of West Pittston, pleaded guilty to a burglary charge in February and is awaiting sentencing.






GOP will honor the late Jonathan Balester Stabbing victim was a longtime party member and community volunteer.

Times Leader staff

HARVEYS LAKE – The Luzerne County Republican Party will host a charity dinner in remembrance of longtime party member and community volunteer Jonathan Balester, who was stabbed to death inside his home in May. Dave Baloga, second vice chairman for the local political organiza-

tion, said he got the idea for the benefit after speaking to several of Balester’s friends, who wanted to do something to honor his memory. “Jonathan was very adamant about being a friend to anyone who was in need. He was always concerned about doing the work of the Lord,” Baloga said. “This is a natural extension of something we can do to remember him.” Balester, 56, was found dead inside his Kingston Township home on May 27. An autopsy determined he died of multiple stab wounds. His death, which has been ruled a

homicide, remains under investigation, according to the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office. Baloga said he got to know Balester through his work with Wyoming Valley Chapter of Pennsylvanians for Human Life Crisis Pregnancy Center. Net proceeds from the dinner will benefit the organization. “It was something that was very dear and important to him. Everyone of his friends had the same sentiment that this was a worthy cause to support,” Baloga said. The dinner, a Southern-style barbeque, will be at 5 p.m. Aug 13 at

the Lakeside Skillet, 279 Lakeside Drive, Harveys Lake. The dinner will include chicken, barbequed pulled pork, vegetables, strawberry shortcake and iced tea. The benefit will also feature music and activities, as well as a basket raffle. Numerous political candidates for the upcoming election are also expected to attend. Reservations with payment must be made by Aug. 10. Make checks payable to the Luzerne County Republican Party, 41 S. Main St., Suite 14, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702. For more information, contact Baloga and 570-477-3177.

Vinsko may challenge Barletta in 2012 L-L hires teacher, Barletta may need campaign cash raised if Democratic lawyer enters the race. By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta raised more than $258,000 in campaign cash during the year’s second quarter, and the Hazleton Republican soon may have a formal opponent against whom to spend all that money. Democrat William Vinsko Jr., a lawyer with his own practice and an assistant city attorney for Wilkes-Barre, said Monday in a phone interview he plans to soon make an announcement about whether he

will challenge Barletta in 2012. Vinsko said a “decision has been made,” but would not reveal his plans. It appears, however, that Vinsko is poised to make a run against Barletta. Barletta had $229,581 on hand as of June 30 after raising $258,287 during the quarter, according to his campaign finance report filed Friday. Barletta’s campaign committee also carries a debt of about $74,000. The freshman Republican defeated longtime incumbent Paul Kanjorski last year. Pennsylvania Republicans will be looking to shore up Barletta’s 11th congressional district when the post-census lines are drawn this year, but Democrats believe the district

will remain Democratic-leaning in its makeup. The nonpartisan, Washington-based Cook Political Report as of July 14 rated Barletta’s district as one of 10 GOPheld “tossup” seats for the 2012 campaign. Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, last quarter raised considerably less money than Barletta. But Marino, a freshman lawmaker who won his seat in 2010 by defeating Democrat Chris Carney, also seems to face less political pressure, at this point, in his 10th congressional district. Marino raised $107,518 during the second quarter and had $124,913 on hand as of June 30.

He has no announced opponent and the Cook Political Report so far does not place Marino on its list of competitive House races for 2012. Carney may be eyeing another run, but not necessarily against Marino, said one local Democrat. Depending on how lines are drawn, Carney could run against Barletta, setting up a potential primary battle to take on Barletta if Vinsko announces in the next few weeks that he is in the race. Carney could not be reached for comment. The Cook Political Report notes that its “ratings are subject to dramatic changes as new maps are finalized in 2011 and 2012.”

Nuangola scrambles to avoid grant loss By TOM HUNTINGTON Times-Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA — Borough council acted Monday evening to implement a $3 million bank loan for a sanitary sewer system that has been proposed for construction in 2014, but at the same was informed of the possible revocation of a $3.2 million federal grant that is part of $6.2 million in the overall funding for project. Under what Council Chairwoman Regina Plodwick called Ordinance No. 2, council voted 6-0 to underwrite the Fulton Bank of Lancaster loan package that will be issued to the Nuan-

gola Sewer Authority. The system is projected to traverse through Rice and Dorrance townships. In a letter from Susanne K. Gantz, community programs director for the U.S. Department of Agriculture dated June 27, it was alleged that the borough has failed to act in a timely manner. Gantz specifically took issue with a 2014 start. Gantz set a moratorium that construction bids must be advertised no later than Nov. 1, 2011, and they be awarded by Jan. 31, 2012. She said that if these deadlines are not met, the grant funds will be “de-obligated” and returned to the federal gov-

ernment, with Nuangola having no recourse for other federal funding. Part of Gantz’ commentary referred to the borough’s failure to secure support funding, but it was noted that that issue was resolved through the loan agreement signed with Fulton Bank. Councilman John Kochan, chairman of the sewer authority, said also the authority has a new plan that he said was formulated by Quad 3 Engineers of Wilkes-Barre and “we are moving forward.” Council said these actions contradict Gantz. In addition, Melissa Weber, secretary-treasurer, said she has been in communication

with the office of U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, and she has a preliminary commitment from him that he will act to sustain Nuangola’s grant funds. The sewer system dominated comment at the session, although, in conjunction with the project, Plodwick said council met in executive session to discuss litigation filed by Milnes Engineers of Tunkhannock and issues relating to $309,000 in funding from Citzens Bank. Attorney Patrick Healy of Lancaster served as Fulton Bank representative for the signing of official documents implementing the loan to the sewer authority.

An elementary library aide is furloughed, the result of program changes. By SARAH HITE

LEHMAN TWP. – The LakeLehman School Board hired a new high school teacher, furloughed another and appointed several employees at its meeting Monday evening. Michael Nonnenburg of Scranton was hired as the secondary industrial technology teacher for the 2011-12 school year with a salary of $41,841. Nonnenburg served as a long-term substitute with the district last year after the retirement of Daniel Williams. The board also appointed the following employees for the 201112 school year: Valerie Williams as district substitute caller with a stipend of $3,500; John McDonald as in-school suspension monitor at a rate of $13.55 per hour, 7 ½ hours per day, 181 days per year; Jeffrey Shook as school and community resource officer at a rate of $15.15 per hour; and Molly Company as part-time teacher associate at a rate of $10.30 per hour, five hours per day, 181 days per year. The board also approved the furlough of Christine Sakoski, elementary library aide, effective June13. The board cut the position during the budgeting process, which included curtailing programs in the secondary school and elementary schools.

W H AT ’ S N E X T

The next meeting of the LakeLehman School Board will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 15 in the library of Ross Elementary School in Sweet Valley.

The board dedicated the elementary special education room in Lehman-Jackson Elementary School as the Farrell Learning Center. The room was named in memory of the late board member John Peter Farrell, who died in a car accident earlier this year. Lorraine Farrell, who replaced her late husband on the board after his death, said he would have been “humbled” by the honor. Board President Mark Kornoski said the board wanted to honor Farrell in some way and felt his dedication to special education should be recognized. In other business, Johnna Evans, president of the Lake-Lehman Foundation, said the organization’s golf tournament on July 15 was a success and announced an upcoming Battle of the Bands fundraiser, to be held July 30. Evans also mentioned the foundation has been able to send six students, three high school and three elementary, to summer camps due to a partnership with Misericordia University. She said next year the foundation will also have the opportunity to send junior high students to camps at Wilkes University.

Panel proposes funding Price hike on menu for charter school meals mix to fix roads, bridges HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Corbett’s transportation funding commission on Monday endorsed a mixture of revenue sources to generate about $2.5 billion in additional annual spending for Pennsylvania’s roads, bridges and mass transit. There were no “no” votes cast and only a single abstention as the commission voted to recommend increased wholesale taxes on oil companies, higher vehicle and driver registration fees and to dedicate a fraction of sales taxes for mass transit needs. Its final report to the governor, due Aug. 1, will lay the groundwork for potential talks between Corbett and the Legislature after Labor Day on a long-term approach to transportation funding. A key element of those talks will be a list of the projects the

state could complete over the next decade if the money is approved. That list is currently being developed internally by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, with input from local and regional transportation planning organizations, and could be on the PennDOT website by the end of August, said Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch. “I think everybody deserves to say, ‘If you are charging me, what do we get for it?’ ” said Schoch, who presided over the meeting. The Transportation Funding Advisory Commission, all Corbett appointees, consisted of government officials, people who work in the transportation industry, representatives of mass transit and others. They were directed at the start not to consider raising the gasoline tax that drivers pay at the pump.

BEAR CREEK TWP. -- Students will need an extra nickel to get a breakfast or lunch at the Bear Creek Community Charter School, and school officials said new government requirements are to blame. The school’s board of trustees voted Monday to increase the price of breakfasts from $1 to $1.05, while lunches will go from $1.75 to $1.80, a move the school’s CEO Jim Smith said is necessary to comply with the requirements of the Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010. Smith said that even though the school’s meal program runs efficiently enough to generate a small surplus, the new act

sets a specific formula for pricing. Under that formula, he said, the meals are underpriced and need to be increased, which will likely increase the surplus. He said the surplus of a few thousand dollars is reinvested into the program through things like special free lunch days and small equipment purchases. The board discussed other options to compensate for the price increase, such as increasing portion sizes, but Smith said the gov-

cause they are involved in undercover operations, noted that a U.S. Department of Justice report released in March indicated that New York- and New Jerseybased gangs were migrating and strengthening operations in Northeastern Pennsylvania and are recruiting members. Much of their presentation on Monday was focused on helping parents identify signs of gang involvement by their children. Jackie Stefanowicz of Duryea questioned the agents about locally employing gang deterrent tactics used in Los Angeles, such as having marked patrol vehicles with volunteers patrol areas where gang members and drug traffickers would likely hang out. The agents said such initiatives are good ideas, but finding local funding can be an issue. Adam Chase of Old Forge said his children attend school in Duryea and he thought the presentation would be a “good opportunity to learn something about the potential for trouble from gangs. … You can’t get enough information. Information is powerful.”

Injury is linked to dementia

Study of older veterans raises concerns about brain injuries from explosions during war.



A N T I - GA N G T I P S FO R PA R E N T S What to look for Early adolescent years (ages 12 to 14) are a crucial time when youths are exposed to gangs and may consider joining a gang. Youths who are becoming involved in a gang may exhibit the following behaviors: • Negative changes in behavior such as withdrawing from family, declining school attendance, staying out late without reason, unusual desire for secrecy, confrontational behavior, sudden negative opinions about law enforcement or authority figures. • Unusual interest in one or two particular colors of clothing or a logo. • Interest in gang-influenced music, videos and movies. • Use and practice of hand signals to communicate with friends. • Peculiar drawings or gang symbols on school books, clothing, notebooks or even walls. • Drastic changes in hair or dress style and/or having a group of friends with the same hair or dress style. • Withdrawal from longtime friends. • Presence of firearms/ammunition or other weapons.

• Non-accidental physical injuries (indicative of accepting a beating for gang initiation). • Unexplained cash or goods, such as clothing or jewelry. What parents can do • Talk to your children about gangs and ways to avoid them and let them know you disapprove of gangs and do not want to see them hurt or arrested. • Tell your children not to associate with gang members, not to hang out where gangs congregate, not to attend any party or social event sponsored by gangs, not to use any kind of hand or finger signs that may be meaningful to gangs and not to wear clothing that may have meaning to gangs in your area. • Get to know your children’s friends and the friends’ parents. • Talk to your children about ways to deal with pressure from friends. • Set firm limits with your children and teens. • Plan family time. • For more information, visit for a links to the Parents’ Guide to Gangs from the National Gang Center or call (850) 385-0600, extension 224.

The program has an overwhelming demand and the supervisors are changing the schedule so that it will be picked up the second Friday of each month in Upper and Lower Browntown, Cork Lane including Tedrick and Markets streets west of the By-Pass. It will also be collected from Stauffer Heights, Center Street, Laurel Street, Doty Street, Mill Street, Horizon Estates and Stauffer Pointe. The fourth Friday of each

month will include Butler Heights and Highway 315, Suscon, Langans Road, Pocono Ridge Estates, Houston City, Packer Street, Glendale, Route 502 and Quail Hill. Supervisors reminded residents that tree branches must be bundled and tied. Any other yard waste must be in containers that do not weigh more than 30 pounds. Residents must call the township building to arrange to have their yard waste picked up between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled pickup date as stated above. Supervisor Stephen Rinaldi wanted residents to know that “whatever they can pick,

they can dispose of.” In other matters, residents asked the supervisors if they can add more officers to the police department staff. Supervisors said they are doing everything they can to add more police. Residents also said they wanted the many potholes on the corner of Armstrong and Suscon to be patched. Rinaldi said all work that needs to be done is being addressed and will be completed on a timely basis. A minor subdivision on West Chapman Street was approved by supervisors. The planning and zoning were in line, and this led the supervisors to approve the subdivision.

PARIS — A large study in older veterans raises fresh concern about mild brain injuries that hundreds of thousands of American troops have suffered from explosions in recent wars. Even concussions seem to raise the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia later in life, researchers found. Closed-head, traumatic brain injuries are a legacy of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Body armor is helping troops survive bomb blasts, but the long-term effects of their head injuries are unknown. The study, reported Monday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in France, challenges the current view that only moderate or severe brain injuries predispose people to dementia. “Even a concussion or a mild brain injury can put you at risk,” said Laurie Ryan, a neuropsychiatrist who used to work at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and now oversees Alzheimer’s grants at the U.S. National Institute on Aging. The study was led by Dr. Kristine Yaffe, a University of California professor and director of the Memory Disorders Clinic at the San Francisco VA Medical Center. The U.S. Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health paid for the work. “It’s by far the largest” study of brain injury and dementia risk, she said. “It’s never been looked at in veterans specifically.” Researchers reviewed medical records on 281,540 veterans who got care from Veterans Health Administration hospitals from 1997 to 2000 and had at least one follow-up visit from 2001-2007. All were at least 55 and none had been diagnosed with dementia when the study began. This older group was chosen because dementia grows more common with age, and researchers needed enough cases to compare those with and without brain injuries. Records showed that nearly 5,000 of the veterans had suffered a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, ranging from concussions to skull fractures. Researchers don’t know how long ago the injuries occurred. Many participants were Vietnam War vets and their injuries were during active duty. None were due to strokes — those cases were weeded out. Over the next seven years, more than 15 percent of those who had suffered a brain injury were diagnosed with dementia versus only 7 percent of the others — a more than doubled risk.

Campbell’s move leaves bitter taste


T’S A SHAME that Campbell Soup Co. couldn’t find a better recipe to serve up higher profits than to put more salt into its soups to ratchet up their taste. The Camden-based company hopes to whet the finicky appetite of consumers, who have found its healthier soup varieties that contain less sodium less appetizing. But most Americans already consume more than the maximum 2,300 milligrams of sodium recommended daily. Campbell’s spokesman Anthony Sanzio said Friday that the company plans to raise the salt level from 480 mg to 650 mg in some varieties. It will still offer lower-sodium versions. The

announcement was greeted warmly by business analysts, who predict more salt will again have consumers saying “M’m M’m good.” But it’s disappointing that a company with a demonstrated record of social responsibility is retreating on efforts to cut sodium. Most salt in food comes not from the shaker, but from processed products. There has been some conflicting research, but most studies have linked increased sodium levels to high blood pressure – a risk factor for stroke, heart attack and other ailments. Light on the salt, please. The Philadelphia Inquirer

he natural gas companies in the Marcellus Shale region pose two very strong marketing weapons. They have advanced the perception that they offer a real solution to the problem of foreign energy dependence and they have managed to brand themselves as the cleanest and greenest of today’s fossil fuels. Neither of these contentions has proven to be true. It’s no longer a secret that Chesapeake and other major natural gas players have sold large slices of their operations to the Chinese to satisfy the ravenous energy demand in that part of the world. We apparently will see little benefit in the way of energy independence from domestic exploration. As to the clean and green issue, we have seen the evidence and heard the testimony of those people who have been wronged by these operations, and only the blind and ignorant among us do not appreciate the real horrors of the hydrofracturing process. Many people argue that there are two sides to this debate. I’m sorry, but there are not. “Fracking” contaminates groundwater, threatens the health of families and renders fresh water supplies useless. No debate there. The drillers employ a strategy that if you repeat a lie frequently enough, it becomes a truth. This strategy is effective but it cannot erase the trail of environmental destruction left by these profiteers wherever they choose to blast the shale. Landscape is destroyed, wildlife is uprooted and the agencies put in place to protect our environment are bypassed. Ignorance of the facts might have served as an excuse in the early days of this issue but it can no longer offer sanctuary to those people who choose to turn their heads. This mining practice is horrific and destructive. It’s not too late to get involved. Contact your representatives and demand a moratorium on fracking until we have time to study its consequences.

Obama’s telling words, but who will own ‘pain’


really thought President Obama’s quote after a recent debt crisis session was illuminating: “Everyone acknowledged that pain will be involved politically on all sides.” I’m not sure if it would be the Republicans or Democrats who are willing to forfeit the largest portion of their salaries, health benefits and pensions. Gregory M. Suda Nanticoke

A corporate takeover now unfolding in nation


t’s about time. After listening to the Republican Congress members constantly accusing President Obama and the Democrats of not submitting cost-cutting measures to reduce the country’s deficit, finally, Obama called their bluff. They are like a spoiled child stating, “I will cut only these programs and will not discuss raising taxes – or I’ll leave the discussions.” This selfish attitude has gone on long enough, and the American people are weary of their representatives in Congress playing a tit-for-tat game of politics while millions of families are losing their homes, losing their jobs and barely able to pay their bills. It’s about time these congressional members enact laws that will encourage banks and corporations to begin hiring people and begin getting this economy back on track. The longer the unemployment rate stays high and the housing market lags behind because banks that are profiting from the stimulus refuse to grant loans to reliable American families, the longer the economic downturn will continue. With the number of foreclosures, you would think the banks would change their attitudes and encourage some of the homeowners to pay smaller amounts on the existing mortgages to help them through these tough economic times. But if one watches the stock market returns daily, many large banks are profiting tremendously and unfortunately are not feeling “patriotic” enough to share some of the profits. An example of corporations and political pawns showing contempt for the middle class or poor of this nation is the recent decision by the Republican-loaded Supreme Court that favored Wal-Mart over working-class women. If one doesn’t believe that corporations are being given favorable treatment, research how many of those same judges voted to let corporations have a big say in American elections. When President Obama called them out for that law when he delivered his State of the Union address, the judges said it was “unethical” for the president to do so. So the next time you chose a candidate to vote into office, please take the time to find out who or what corporation is backing him or her. Many of the recent Republican governors (Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida,


etc.) were put into office through vast amounts of money donated by the sly Koch brothers, billionaires who recently had a meeting of their “puppet” governors in Vail, Colo., to give them marching orders. All this to create a situation that will continue to allow these corporate giants to have laws enacted in their favor that allow pollution to continue, and more important to stop the Democrats from winning elections with the help of union-backed funds. In this way our country eventually will be run by aristocratic corporate giants, be they industry, banks or Wall Street entities; and instead of a fair playing field for the American worker, they will become slaves of these giants running the government purely for profit without any consideration for the crumbling middle class or poor.

Kids should be cared for, not put on picket line


t is expected that taxpaying adults sometimes will picket regarding issues that affect their jobs, taxes and lives; but it is disgusting to see children with signs. Aren’t 7- and 8-year-old children a little old for kindergarten? Parents who use their children as an excuse to solve their problems should be ashamed. Children shouldn’t be used as pawns to negotiate for full-day kindergarten at a cost the property owners cannot afford. If parents have to work to sustain their style of living, then they should be responsible for arrangements with a day care, not at taxpayers’ expense via the school system. Elaine Givens Plymouth

Government actions don’t add up to much ‘cents’


he government makes no “cents.” Newspapers, according to the law, print property listings from the tax claim office regarding people who owe back taxes, the first step in sheriff’s sale. We give millions in foreign aid to other nations. We are building roads, bridges and schools in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Millions of Americans are receiving rent subsidies. Middle-class Americans pay their own mortgages and taxes. A young man or woman joins the military, serves one or two tours in Iraq or Afghanistan, comes home to find their parents home up for sheriff’s sale while he or she was helping to build schools, roads, bridges – with Americans tax dollars.

MERGER Continued from Page 1A

“In my opinion, (it) will be one of the most significant investments in health care in the greater Scranton region,” Wilson said. This isn’t the first time the two entities talked about combining. In August 2009, they signed a

non-binding letter of intent to explore possible ways to work together, but four months later the talks ended with no partnership in place. If the merger does occur, it will be the latest reshaping of the health care landscape in Northeastern Pennsylvania, which would be led by two health systems: Danville-based Geisinger and Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems, which is a



for-profit company. Geisinger operates two hospitals in Luzerne County -- Geisinger Wyoming Valley in Plains Township and Geisinger South WilkesBarre. In recent years, CHS has targeted this region for purchases. In March, a Lackawanna County judge approved the $150 million sale to CHS of Scranton’s Mercy Hospital and affiliated facilities in Nanticoke and Tunkhannock.

“This is what I have to look forward to,” she said. There will be no air conditioning and an unbearable number of mosquitoes at night. With much of the nation in the grip of a broiling heat wave, few people are hit as hard as the poor, and few places are poorer than the ramshackle communities along the Texas-Mexico border known as “colonias.” The misery was widespread Monday, with the worst conditions blanketing a broad band from Texas to Minnesota and Dakotas. Seventeen states is-

Though he declined to pinpoint blame, Liuzzo said “most of the fixing requires a shift in the psychology of lawmakers.” Role of politics Bob Herbert, a Demos distinguished senior fellow and former New York Times columnist, moderated the media teleconference and also talked about the role of politics in creating the problem. “We have ideology and politics standing in the way,” Herbert said. “Three generations ago, America created our single greatest invention, not the Internet or the internal combustion engine or the light bulb or the solar panel. It was the vast American middle class,” Herbert said. “This middle class didn’t just happen. It was the result of a grand bargain among government, businesses and ordinary workers who all agreed on a


In May 2009, CHS purchased the Wyoming Valley Health Care System, which includes WilkesBarre General Hospital, for $271 million. Part of that deal included the promise of major upgrades, including a $50 million expansion that includes a new emergency department. Ground was broken for that project last month. The merger would require an investigation by the state Attorney General’s Office since CMC is a

HOT TIMES AHEAD The National Weather Service said it will be hot and humid all week, with temperatures in the 90s every day. Thursday’s high is expected to hit 97 degrees and the high on Friday will be 96. Temperatures will moderate next week when the high is expected to dip to 82 degrees on Monday.

park – until now.” Korona said she and her friends will take their children over to Kingston’s Hamilton Park, but she said getting there could be difficult. “We walk everywhere,” she said. “It’s difficult to take a lot of kids on a bus.” Korona said a nearby new gated playground for toddlers is unusable because of the construction project. “It’s all pretty frustrating,” she said. At last week’s City Council meeting, Councilman Tony Thomas Jr. said the concrete at the new $145,439 splash pad installed at the renovated park didn’t cure properly. Thomas said the concrete had to be removed. Parrish Pools, Hunt Valley, Md., is the subcontractor that did the original work, according to Drew McLaughlin, the city’s administrative coordinator. He said the general contractor is Bitting Recreation Co., Harrisburg. Parrish Pools was hired as a sub-contractor by Bitting through the COSTARS program, McLaughlin said.


“The city is as eager to open the splash pad as any resident or park visitor,” said Mayor Tom Leighton. “The forecasted hot weather this week is exactly why I prioritized building the splash pad for Coal Street, but the city was not going to accept or pay for work that was sub-par. The city is pushing hard for it to be opened in time for the end of the summer season.” By the looks of things at Coal Street, the splash pad is weeks away from being completed. Visitors there said they haven’t seen work being done on the splash pad since the beginning of July. Allen Schmidt, who brought three of his children to the park, said he was looking for something

fun for the kids to do on a hot and humid day. “It’s so hot,” Schmidt said. “And no splash pad open, well, that’s not good. And nothing is being done. The city can’t get anything right.” William and Jacquelyn Morris of Wilkes-Barre brought there 22month-old daughter, Ava, to the park. “A splash park is still a great idea,” Morris said. “At least it will be available next year.” Randy Bitting was unavailable for comment Monday and a call to Parrish Pools was not returned. McLaughlin said Bitting handled the firing of the previous subcontractor, and he is conducting the search for a new one.

McLaughlin said the city will have a ribbon-cutting for the completed recreational improvements, such as the basketball courts and toddler playground, in the near future. The city said the concrete vault failed an inspection by the city’s building code office. The vault holds the water filtration system and all of the plumbing that controls and operates the splash pad. McLaughlin said it would not cost the city any additional money to correct the problem. Thomas said the splash pad will be a welcome addition to Coal Street Park, which has undergone a $14 million facelift in the last two years. A splash pad is an area for water play that has no standing water and doesn’t require a lifeguard or other supervision. Lydia Naperkowski said there could be water at Coal Street soon. “Maybe it will rain,” she said.

sued heat watches, warnings or advisories. And the heat index easily surpassed 100 degrees in many places: 126 in Newton, Iowa; 120 in Mitchell, S.D.; and 119 in Madison, Minn. The high temperatures were nearly certain to persist for the entire week. Forecasters expected the extreme discomfort to spread soon to the East Coast. In towns large and small, the withering heat was cruelest to those who could not afford air conditioning. Built at the edge of the desert, the colonias often lack electricity and running water. People bought the land before zoning regulations were adopted, hoping that utility services

would follow. To finance her house, Escamilla, who is 62, had to take out a loan against her funeral services and buy building materials recycled from demolition sites in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso. Norma Salazar, who shares a tiny trailer home with her husband and six children in Horizon City, on the outskirts of El Paso, has to rely on an evaporative cooler, a cheap alternative to air conditioning that sucks the hot, dry desert air through a mesh of water-soaked fibers. But it only cools half of the trailer, and when the heat climbs above 100, not even that. In downtown Minneapolis, where the heat index reached

106 degrees, the Salvation Army’s Harbor Light Center threw open its doors for anyone who needed to cool off and drink a glass of ice water. Executive Director Bill Miller said he allowed about 200 people who slept at the shelter Sunday night to stay instead being asked to leave in the morning. “We don’t have them leave when it’s this hot,” he said. “It’s hot enough to get dehydrated, especially if you’re drinking. In this heat, it could kill you.” Chicago officials opened six cooling centers, many of them in lower-income neighborhoods, along with hundreds of air-conditioned public buildings such as libraries, park facilities and police stations.

set of shared values that basically said, ‘We believe that all Americans should have a decent life.’ ” Herbert said the agreements made it possible to have goodpaying, meaningful jobs with benefits, pensions and paid time off. He said chief executive officers typically earned 25 times the average salary of his or her employees. That has now risen to 200 times that average salary, and boards of directors and governmentbacked tax cuts and incentives have begun to take their toll on what Herbert called “The American Dream.” To start to swing the momentum back to a strong middle class, Herbert said the nation needs to refocus on job growth, investing in infrastructure and creating sustainable jobs in industries such as alternative energy. And policies that help – and not harm the middle class – are essential. The report addresses several factors contributing to strains on the middle class of Pennsylvania. Among them are stagnant wages

and an increased cost of college tuition. Over the last 30 years, inflationadjusted median annual earnings for Pennsylvania workers (ages 18-64) have fluctuated with changes in the economy, the report shows. Pennsylvania’s median earnings peaked at $36,750 in 2003, before falling and then recovering in the last few years to $36,050. Though wages are below their 2003 level, they have grown since 1980 in step with the rest of the nation. While annual earnings have increased in the past few years, the increase translates to a little over $2 more per hour.

filed against Flood and two state welfare officials challenging the release of a draft audit critical of the county’s $58 million, 20-year lease of PA Childcare’s Pittston Township juvenile center. The detention center was at the center of corruption charges later filed against former judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan, former center co-owner Robert Powell and center builder Robert Mericle. Conahan had sealed the trade secrets suit, but the state Superior Court overturned that decision after an appeal by The Times Leader. Federal authorities said Conahan’s sealing without a hearing was one example of fraud committed by Conahan in exchange for a bribe, according to an indictment against Conahan and Ciavarella. Court paperwork says PA Child Care discontinued and ended the trade secrets suit with prejudice, which means it can’t file the claim again in the future. PA Child Care’s Pittsburgh attorney, Bernard M. Schneider, declined comment Monday on the reason for ending the suit. Allstate Insurance Co. also dropped a legal action against Flood and PA Child Care in January, court records showed. The company’s suit argued that Flood’s personal umbrella insurance policy didn’t require the insurer to defend Flood or provide any monetary compensation in the trade secrets suit.

Sued over fees The other outstanding suit was filed in 2010 by a Philadelphia law firm against Flood and his partner and guardian, Heather Paulhamus, claiming that the firm is owed $205,696 in legal fees for representing Flood in the libel suit. Wilkes-Barre attorney Robert C. Trichilo, who is representing Flood and Paulhamus, said Monday that the suit is still in the beginning stages of discovery. Trichilo said he and other lawyers at Brady & Grabowski, P.C., may be filing a separate suit against the county on behalf of Flood or his estate arguing that the county is responsible for the legal fees. The lawyers are researching a statute governing the payment of legal fees for county employees and department heads, he said. The county Retirement Board had initially voted to pay for Flood’s legal defense in the libel suit but reversed the decision shortly after Flood lost his bid for re-election in 2005. The law firm seeking payment – Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis – also represented the retirement board in a 2003 racketeering suit filed against past county officials and pension fund managers. A federal judge dismissed that suit in November 2007. The county controller, commissioners and treasurer sit on the retirement board, which oversees the employee pension fund.

cent higher than the $28,356 a typical high school graduate in the same age range was earning. “College is more inaccessible than ever,” said Stephen Herzenberg, the executive director of the Keystone Research Center. And it’s only getting more costly because of state budget tightening that’s meant less funding for state-run or state-related universities. For the 2011-12 school year, the state legislature reduced spending at the 14 Pennsylvania State System of Education universities, which includes Bloomsburg and East Stroudsburg, by about $70 million, or 14.5 percent. The state-related universities, such as Pittsburgh, Temple and Penn State, saw 19 percent funding cuts. As a result, tuition rates are skyrocketing at those schools next semester. Temple University is raising in-state undergraduate tuition rates nine percent this fall. As a point of reference, the current rate on inflation is 3.6 percent.

And for those who do go to college, their debt is high compared to their counterparts across the country. Seventy two percent of college graduates in Pennsylvania entered the labor force with student debt in 2009, and their average debt —$27,066— was the seventh highest in the nation, according to the report. While the CEOs and government were mentioned as contributors, Herbert declined to place the blame on just one group. “There are a lot of people responsible for the fix that we’re in,” Herbert said. But to fix the problems, Liuzzo said, it will likely mean higher taxes. And that will hurt the middle class even more. “The rich will pay more, but they can afford it. The poor can’t pay it and so the middle class will be footing the bill,” he said. This is the trend of the past few decades. And the end result, Liuzzo said, is that “the rich get richer, the poor get richer and the middle class gets a little bit richer.”

Back Mountain pitcher shuts out Plains By DAVE ROSENGRANT

BLOOMSBURG – During the first two games of the Region 5 American Legion Baseball Tournament, Steve Ruch blistered the baseball with the bat leading Back Mountain to a pair of wins. On Monday in the winner’s bracket final against Plains, the Holy Redeemer grad showed what he could do on the mound.

ith a proud, gleeful trot, Shane Victorino rounded third base and headed for

home. It was only then that Victorino discovered his high, arcing shot over the left field wall Sunday at Waterfront Park had been ruled a foul ball. “I said, ‘Thanks for letting me get all the way around third before telling me,’ ” Victorino said. So for the second time this month, Victorino’s game told a tale of blunder. He tripped while throwing from the outfield against the Toronto Blue Jays on July 3, which is how he landed on the disabled list with an injured right thumb and why he spent this past weekend completing a minor league rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Reading. “Another embarrassing moment. Why not?” Victorino said. “Two weeks to the day.” Yet, the today the Phillies get so much stronger, even boasting the best record in baseball, because Victorino returns Philadelphia’s lineup. Late-inning relief specialst Brad Lidge isn’t far behind. After throwing 15 of his 16 pitches for strikes while working a scoreless seventh inning for Reading on Sunday, Lidge figures he’s one more rehab outing away from resuming his role as the Phillies closer. He spent the first half of this year recovering from a right rotator cuff strain. But it’s Victorino’s absence that’s put a real strain on the Phillies, which is why his return may have the biggest impact on the team. The high-energy All-Star center fielder was hitting .303 with nine home runs and 34 RBI at the time of his injury. But more importantly, he solidified the middle of the Phillies lineup after recently dropping to the team’s No. 5 hitter from his second slot in the batting order. Victorino’s presence behind cleanup man Ryan Howard gives a scoringchallenged Phillies offense much more potential and punch. Even if he’s not about to punch anything just yet with his still ailing thumb. “There’s going to be pain,” Victorino said. “There’s going to be some discomfort there. I’ve just got to play through it.” He’s never just playing around. Anybody who’s watched Victorino can’t help admiring his all-out, all-thetime hustle and his penchant for delivering in big moments. Remember his game-changing grand slam against C.C. Sabathia in the 2008 National League playoffs? Or Victorino’s lunging grab of a shot to the gap against the Reds in last year’s postseason? He didn’t slow down much during his rehab stint with Reading, hitting .500 in two games – even without his disputed long ball. “I thought it was over (in fair territory),” Victorino said of his first-inning blast that hugged the left field line. “Obviously the umpire didn’t.” That didn’t stop him from spending the rest of his Sunday hustling through center field and around the base paths. “That’s how I play the game,” Victorino said. “I kind of play it at one speed.” It’s a non-stop ball of energy Phillies fans truly appreciate. Victorino is back in Philadelphia and heading toward the plate again. And this time, nobody’s going to stop him.

Halladay leaves start in loss The Associated Press

Mets: Reyes likely off DL today

CHICAGO — Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena homered to back a dominant start by Rodrigo Lopez, and the Chicago Cubs beat Philadelphia 6-1 Monday on a night when Phillies ace Roy Halladay left the game because of the heat. Halladay doubled over and was visited by a trainer after Starlin Castro led off the fifth inning with a single. Drew Carpenter came in to replace him. Halladay was drenched in sweat on a humid night in which the game-time temperature was 91. The heat clearly affected him. He gave up three runs and seven hits and took his first loss since May 15. Halladay had his first outing since starting for the National League in last week’s All-Star game and pitching two perfect innings.

since July 24, 2008, for San Diego at Pittsburgh.

Marlins 4, Mets 1

Nationals 5, Astros 2

NEW YORK — Clay Hensley came off the disabled list to win his first major league start in three years, leading the resurgent Florida Marlins past the New York Mets. Mike Stanton hit a two-run double and slumping Mike Cameron followed with an RBI single for the Marlins, who have won nine of 10 to put themselves on the brink of climbing out of last place in the NL East. Florida improved to 15-9 under 80-year-old manager Jack McKeon, who took over after Edwin Rodriguez abruptly resigned late in the team’s 1-19 June swoon. In the makeup of a May 17 rainout, Hensley (1-2) allowed one hit over five scoreless innings against a depleted Mets lineup. It was his 41st big league start — but first

HOUSTON Michael Morse and Ryan Zimmerman homered and Zimmerman drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning to give the Washington Nationals a in over the Houston Astros. Laynce Nix added a pair of insurance runs with an RBI single after Zimmerman’s hit in the ninth.

NEW YORK Jose Reyes appears ready to come off the disabled list. The New York Mets star doubled and played six innings at shortstop Monday in a rehab game for Class-A Brooklyn. Mets manager Terry Collins says it looks as though Reyes will be activated Tuesday in time for the opener of a three-game series against St. Louis. Leading the majors with a .354 batting average and 15 triples, Reyes has been sidelined since July 3 with a strained left hamstring. He was eligible to come off the disabled list Monday, but the Mets wanted him to test his leg in a game first. Reyes went 1 for 3 and scored a run in Brooklyn’s 11-5 loss to Lowell.

DENVER — Freddie Freeman homered and drove in three runs and right-hander Derek Lowe handcuffed the Colorado Rockies over 6 1-3 innings in the Atlanta Braves’ 7-4 win Monday night. Lowe must have felt right at home in the unusually warm night in Colorado, and the sunshine actually helped him beat the Rockies for the second time in two weeks.

Yankees rally from 3 down to beat Rays ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Russell Martin drew a basebsloaded walk with two outs in the top of the ninth inning, giving the New York Yankees a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night. Robinson Cano, Mark Teixeira, Brett Gardner and Eduardo Nunez also drove in runs for the second-place Yankees, who rallied from a 4-1 deficit to remain 11⁄2 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the AL East standings. Rookie left-hander Alex Torres (0-1) yielded the winning run in his major league debut after New York loaded the bases on Curtis Granderson’s single, an intentional walk to Nick Swisher and another walk to Andruw Jones. Martin worked Torres to a full count, fouled off a pitch and then took ball four to push Granderson across the plate. Red Sox 15, Orioles 10

BALTIMORE — Dustin Pedroia doubled in two runs to spark an eight-run eighth inning, and the Boston Red Sox got home runs from Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Josh Reddick in a rout of the Baltimore Orioles. Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis and Darnell McDonald had three RBIs apiece for the Red Sox, who have won 13 of 15. The run includes a 16-inning affair against Tampa Bay on Sunday night in which Boston mustered only five hits. Showing very little signs of fatigue, the Red Sox banged out 16 hits in rolling to their seventh straight victory over the Orioles.







Indians 5, Twins 2 Indians 6, Twins 3

MINNEAPOLIS — Lou Marson hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh inning and the Cleveland Indians completed a doubleheader sweep with a 6-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins, kicking off the important four-game series with a pair of victories at sweltering Target Field. Marson also doubled and scored in the fifth against Scott Diamond, who turned in a decent major league debut for the Twins but took the defeat. Fausto Carmona (5-10) came off the disabled list and won for only the second time in his last 12 starts, beating the heat to finish six innings with two runs allowed. Asdrubal Cabrera hit a three-run homer to lift the Indians to a 5-2 win in the matinee and added an RBI single in the nightcap. White Sox 5, Royals 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mark Buerhle lasted seven innings in another impressive start, and the Chicago White Sox capitalized on an error by young shortstop Alcides Escobar to beat the Kansas City Royals on a steamy. Buehrle (7-5) hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in his last 14 starts going back to April 22, though his modest record doesn’t indicate how well he’s been pitching. The veteran left-hander, in the final year of a four-year, $56 million contract, allowed five hits while winning for the first time since June 9. Buehrle struck out three and walked one while throwing 111 pitches in 95-degree temperatures.

Tests show no new issues for Nolan Ryan The Associated Press

HOUSTON — Tests done Monday on Texas Rangers President Nolan Ryan showed no new heart problems for the Hall of Fame pitcher, who was hospitalized after experiencing discomfort over the weekend. Ryan, 64, “continues to improve,” the Rangers said in a statement. He is expected to be released from a Houston hospital in a day or two. Ryan has a pre-existing heart condition that will continue being treated with medication, according to the team’s statement. He had a double-bypass operation in 2000 and has a family history of heart disease. He sought treatment after experiencing discomfort Sunday morning while at his home in Georgetown, located about 170 miles northwest of Houston. Ryan had been expected to join the Rangers in Anaheim, Calif., on Tuesday night for the start of a three-game series between his AL West-leading club and the Angels, who are in second place, four games back. He was scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch and to take part in a ceremony inducting Gene Autry, the Angels’ late owner, into the team’s Hall of Fame. Ryan holds the records for most no-hitters (seven) and strikeouts (5,714). He’s been running the Rangers since 2008 and became part-owner last summer. Texas went to the World Series for the first time last fall. Tejada leaves game with possible injury SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Giants shortstop Miguel Tejada has left Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a possible groin injury. Tejada had attempted to field Rafael Furcal’s sharp grounder in the third inning, but bobbled it for an error then slid to the turf. A team trainer came out to check on Tejada, as did San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy, before the three walked off the field together. Tejada, who was replaced by rookie Brandon Crawford, struck out in his only at-bat against the Dodgers’ Chad Billingsley.

be approved by the players, of course, including star quarterbacks Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees and the other plaintiffs in a federal antitrust suit against the league. Members of the NFLPA executive committee and representatives of every team were heading to Washington by Wednesday, in preparation for possible decisions on re-establishing a union and signing off on a tentative pact with owners. Atallah said the players would be gathering “with the hope they have something to look at, and with the hope we can move forward on this.” Owners locked out players on March 12, when the old collective bargaining agreement expired, leaving the country’s most popular professional sports league in limbo. The sides are trying to forge a settlement in time to keep the preseason completely intact. The exhibition opener is supposed to be the Hall of Fame game between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears on Aug. 7. The regular-season opener is scheduled for Sept. 8, when the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers are to host the New Orleans Saints. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick tweeted Monday: “Sound like we gonna be back to work so soon!!!” One issue standing in the way of a resolution, according to a person from each side of the dispute and speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity: Players want owners to turn over $320 million in unpaid benefits from the 2010 season. Because there was no salary cap that season, the old collective bargaining agreement said NFL teams were not required to pay those benefits. On a separate matter, one of those people, as well as a second person familiar with the negotiations, also told the AP that a proposal currently under consideration would set up nearly $1 billion over the next 10 years in additional benefits for retired players. That would include $620 million in pension increases, long-term care insurance and disability programs. Representatives of retired players are expected to be in New York for Tuesday’s talks; that group complained to the court recently that it had been excluded from negotiations. At federal court in Minnesota, where the players’ antitrust suit is pending, their lawyers filed a motion Monday asking for a summary judgment that the lockout is illegal and that players are entitled to damages. The NFL, meanwhile, asked the court for a week’s extension to file their formal response to the lawsuit; the original deadline was Monday. Those filings were necessary, procedural moves that would be rendered moot if an agreement is reached before the Aug. 29 hearing date. Later Monday, the NFL and retired players filed a joint request to delay the hearing for at least a month to allow owners “to focus on the continuing mediation.” Atallah called the current players’ filing “an obligation to protect the members of the class.” “Obviously, if we come to a settlement, it all can be lifted at any time,” he said.

American set for state tourney By VAN ROSE

The Back Mountain American Little League minor baseball team is on a roll. The squad, comprised of 9 and 10 year-olds, won four consecutive games last weekend to claim the District 31 and Section 5 championships at North Pocono. Now, the team has a chance to capture a state championship. Coach Jeff Doggett’s team opens first-round play at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in Milton against Warwick, the defending state champion in the age bracket. “Warwick won the District 6 sectional tournament and they are a very strong team,” Doggett said. “They make plays in the field and run well. They also have good pitching.” According to Doggett, the two teams match well and he’s confident that Back Mountain American will be tough to beat. “Our biggest advantage is that we can hit,” he said. “We score a

I’m confident we’re going to put runs on the board.” American had its back against the wall last week in the doubleelimination tournament but responded like champions. After dropping a 7-3 decision to North Pocono in the opener, American bounced back by winning four games. The team beat

at 11 a.m. Wednesday against the winner of the Back MountainCanton game. “Our backs are against the wall and I hope the kids come out with some fire (today) because now we got nothing to lose,” Plains manager Don Stark said. “We felt good coming in today, but we had some lapses and we need to fix those lapses.” The only inning which Ruch allowed two hits was the first. Plains only got one hit in the third, fourth, seventh and eighth. He struck out just four batters, but got a lot of help from his defense. The Back Mountain defense turned two double-plays. Third baseman Marc Noyalis started one of the twin-killings and also made a pair of backhanded grabs to save extra bases and get a groundout. “I had a fastball working today and I was throwing a two-seamer a little bit and I was getting them to hit it into the ground and I have a great defense behind me which helps a lot in a nine-inning game,” Ruch said. “They (the defense) has been doing it all year behind our pitching and the pitching thanks them a lot.” Back Mountain jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first

Wallenpaupack and North Pocono, then posted two straight wins over Plains to lock up the title. “We have 12 kids that are a distinct privilege to coach,” Doggett said. “They’re very unselfish and tough between the ears. They don’t get caught up in nonsense. They’re a credit to themselves, their families and our league.” American (8-1) also prides itself by displaying sportsmanship, he added. “We shake hands with the opponents, coaches and the umpires after every game. It’s a very unselfish group of kids,” Doggett said, He credits assistant coaches Scott Answini and Mike Luksic for playing a key role in the team’s success. Doggett said the key to Wednesday’s game is to strike first. “We pitch and defend well enough to stay ahead,” he said. “We feel like we belong in the state tournament. We earned it by playing a lot of tough teams.” Starter Bob Sorokas only lasted three-plus innings giving up eight hits. And Plains hurt itself with errors with the defense committing three miscues. “They hit Bobby pretty well. He didn’t hit his spots like he wanted to and we didn’t help him out defensively either,” Stark added. Jim Graziosi was the lone multiple hitter for Plains going 2for-3 and had the only extra-base hit for the team with a double. Josh Everett (2-for-4) joined teammates Narcum, Patel and Ruch as multiple hitters for the winners.

Voeckler has French fans excited By JEROME PUGMIRE AP Sports Writer

MONTPELLIER, France — With the Tour de France heading toward its decisive stages, there is still no favorite in a wide open race that is fueling the passions of French fans who hope Thomas Voeckler holds his lead against all odds. When racing resumes Tuesday after a rest day, Voeckler will open the 16th stage nearly two minutes ahead of Frank Schleck — supposedly a weaker rider than his younger brother, Andy — and four minutes ahead of three-time champion Alberto Contador. Voeckler remains fiercely adamant he has a “zero percent chance” to become the first French Tour winner since Bernard Hinault in 1985, while doubts persist about Contador’s troublesome right knee. Even the Schleck brothers seem undecided who is No. 1 on their team, while two-time runner-up Cadel Evans is conspicuously staying out of the limelight. All of this means that it was in-

creasingly hard to pick a favorite heading into the last week of the Tour. “It’s still a bit strange because I think people still look at the Schleck brothers as favorites, but they’re two minutes down,” Evans said Sunday after British sprinter Mark Cavendish won the 15th stage. “So it’s still about Voeckler for now. We’ve got some more hills, some more racing and a time trial to go.” Evans is third overall, 2:06 behind Voeckler, 17 seconds behind second-place Frank Schleck, nine seconds ahead of Andy Schleck — the runner-up to Contador in the last two Tours — and 1:54 ahead of Contador. “Voeckler is in incredible form,” Contador said. “He has a big lead, it will be hard to make that up.” None of the Tour contenders managed to cut loose in the three Pyrenean mountain stages last week, and someone has to make a big move in three punishing Alpine stages that loom. “I don’t want to arrive in Paris with regrets,” Contador said af-

Armstrong wants feds to discuss media talks By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Lance Armstrong’s attorneys say illegal government leaks of grand jury information have sullied the cyclist’s reputation, and have asked a court to order federal agents to discuss their contacts with the media. In a 20-page notice of alleged violations filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, lawyers for the seven-time Tour de France winner cited more than a dozen articles in many media outlets from May 2010 through last month about an ongoing grand jury investigation into whether Armstrong used performance-enhancing drugs in violation of U.S. law. The cyclist’s attorneys argue that only someone in the government could be responsible for the leaks, and a judge should order the government to explain why it should not be held in contempt. In a last resort, the lawyers said, the court could force journalists to reveal their sources. “The leaker in this case has, from the beginning, acted with the obvious intent of legitimizing the government’s investigation of a national hero, best known for his role in the fight against cancer,” the court papers said. “Each leak has been designed to propagate public support for this investigation by smearing Armstrong and tarnishing his reputation. The tactical nature of these leaks cannot be ignored as it strongly suggests an underlying partisanship inherent in government agents.” Armstrong’s lawyers accused The Associated Press, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Sports Illustrated and CBS’ “60 Minutes” of reporting illegally leaked information. One of Armstrong’s lawyers,


John W. Keker, attached a statement detailing 26 media reports that reported the alleged


ter Cavendish raced to his fourth stage victory of the race — and 19th overall in the Tour — by beating American sprinter Tyler Farrar on a 119.6-mile stage from Limoux to Montpellier. There should be plenty of opportunities for Contador to attack the 32-year-old Voeckler in the punishing Alps later this week. But if the Frenchman does not crack, then the race is going to be decided on the penultimate stage time trial. Not that cycling fans are complaining. Voeckler’s unexpected rise to the top adds an extra layer of intrigue because it has been 14 years since a Frenchman even got on the podium — let alone won the race. Voeckler has also become an extra, surprise, and welcome contender. Last year’s Tour was a duel between Contador and Schleck, the year before it was Contador beating Schleck again, with seven-time champion Lance Armstrong completing the podium. No great surprises there, even with Armstrong’s hyped return.

SANDWICH, England — Darren Clarke’s bleary, bloodshot eyes told it all. The party began shortly after he walked off the 18th green at Royal St. George’s with the claret jug in hand. Beer and red wine flowed through the night, the revelry not letting up until Clarke had to return Monday morning for a few more interviews and some picture-taking at the spot where he tapped in the final putt to win the British Open. “I have not been to bed yet,” Clarke said. “I probably won’t get any sleep until tomorrow at some stage. You have to enjoy it while you can. “It’s been,” he added mischievously, “a very good night.” Clarke sure earned it. No one had ever gone more than 15 British Opens before winning. Clarke did it on his 20th try at 42, making him the oldest firsttime major winner since Roberto de Vicenzo in 1967. But that only tells part of the story. Clarke lost his wife, Heather, to cancer five years ago, leaving him to raise two young boys. Not surprisingly, his focus on the course wavered, which sent him plummeting out of the top 100 in the world. It had been a decade since he was a serious contender in a major — he didn’t even qualify for the three majors that preceded the Open. “I definitely appreciate an awful lot more what I’ve achieved,” Clarke said. “Ten years ago, I did take an awful lot of things for granted.” His parents and new love, fiancee Alison Campbell, were at Royal St. George’s to cheer him. Clarke’s two boys stayed home in Northern Ireland, but he phoned them shortly after his threestroke victory over Americans

Darren Clarke and fiancee Alison Campbell hold the Open Golf Championship trophy at Royal St George’s Monday.

Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson. “Tyrone, my oldest one, was very pleased, very proud,” Clarke said. “He was going to tell everybody his dad was Open champion.” And Conor, his youngest? “He wanted to know what he could spend all the money on,” Clarke said, breaking into a grin. That’s not surprising. Clarke has always been a guy who lived life to the fullest, so it’s only appropriate that he passed on that attitude to his children. Then again, given all that’s happened, Clarke plans to handle the spoils of this triumph a bit more prudently than he would have, say, 10 years ago. His Open prize was nearly $1.5 million, and there will undoubtedly be a flood of new endorsement opportunities. “I actually don’t have anything in mind because I’ve been there, done all that before,” Clarke said. “I’ve had the opportunity to buy whatever I want to buy and all that. This time, I’m a little bit older and a little bit more sensible. If I can put a little bit more aside for my boys’ future, then that’s what I’ll do, as opposed to looking after myself.” Clarke has long been a stalwart of the European Ryder Cup team, and he’s made no secret of his de-

sire to serve as captain one day. He may have to put off those ambitions for a few years. Turns out, this guy can still play. “Playing,” he said, “is much better than being a nonplaying captain.” Clarke became the third golfer from tiny Northern Ireland to win in the last six majors, following U.S. Open champions Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell. The Americans haven’t won any during that span, their longest drought of the modern Grand Slam era, though they did have five of the top seven at Royal St. George’s. Mickelson played the first 10 holes Sunday at 6 under and actually claimed a share of the lead at one point, only to fade down the stretch when his putter faltered. Johnson was in contention again at a major but made another huge blunder, knocking a shot out of bounds just five holes from the finish. “Northern Ireland...... Golf capital of the world!!” McIlroy tweeted, and there will undoubtedly be a push to add that country’s Royal Portrush club to the rotation of nine courses that regularly host the British Open. “We’re all very aware of the fact that three winners from Northern Ireland increases the interest level in this,” R&A chief Peter Dawson said Monday. “I have agreed to take a look.” In1951, Royal Portrush became the only course outside Scotland and England to hold the championship. But the Royal & Ancient is concerned that a lack of hotels and major roads would make it difficult to host such a big event in the modern era. “The usual mixture of a great course and plenty of infrastructure combined with the prospect of commercial success is what’s needed,” Dawson said. From Clarke’s point of view, the course at Royal Portrush is already worthy of a major. But he understands other factors must be considered.

U.S. coach Pia Sundhage, a Swede who played for her national team, knew only too well how fast the gap was closing between the American women and the rest of the world in terms of resources, organization and even quality athletes. She had already laid the groundwork for her squad to rely less on athleticism and more on technique; to play the way the best of the rest of the world does by moving the ball quickly and accurately under pressure. That Sundhage moved the strategy from the training ground to the pitch for the biggest match of their careers shows how much faith she had in this bunch. Even more than American football, soccer is a game of possession and finishing a few scoring chances.. The U.S. women succeeded at the first task, but came away with nothing too




USC’s Tyler suspended after comments to TMZ By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

Southern California tailback Marc Tyler has been suspended from all team activities and the Trojans’ season opener for comments he made to TMZ that implied he gets paid to play for USC. When asked by TMZ whether he could make more money at USC or in the NFL, Tyler said, “USC, they breaking bread,” making a gesture indicating a large stack of money. USC coach Lane Kiffin suspended his leading rusher Monday for the Sept. 3 opener against Minnesota and possibly longer. The fifth-year senior is facing potential discipline from the school after what he said were two alcohol-related problems in April. “I am disappointed that I let down all the people who have supported me as I have been working through some personal issues,” Tyler said in a statement released by the school. “I realize how my behavior and my statements, even though I was joking, can reflect poorly on so many people. As a veteran player, I should know that my job is to be an example for the younger guys.” USC is entering the second year of a postseason ban during four years of NCAA probation

stemming from illegal benefits provided to Reggie Bush. TMZ recorded Tyler’s comments last Thursday outside Voyeur, a West Hollywood nightclub. Tyler, who turns 23 in September, also made a distasteful comment to TMZ about Kim Kardashian, Bush’s ex-girlfriend. “That is not the way that we expect our players to represent USC and our team,” Kiffin said. “Although Marc may find this punishment severe, it is imperative we continue to have a high standard for player behavior. Marc needs to work hard to show us that he can meet the standards of being a USC football player.” Athletic director Pat Haden said Tyler “stepped way out of line. He did not represent himself, his university or his team the way we expect. Marc has a lot to do to prove he belongs on our team. We hope Marc learns from this and comes back a changed and better person.” Last month, Tyler said he had appeared before the school’s Office of Student Judicial Affairs to discuss two complaints made against him in April. Tyler was accused of spitting on a female student while intoxicated, and later touching another female student inappropriately at a bar near USC’s downtown campus.


Minister: Resignations won’t affect security plans

By ROB HARRIS AP Sports Writer

LONDON — Security preparations for the 2012 Olympics will not be harmed by the resignations of London’s top two police officers a year before the games, the British government said Monday. Scotland Yard chief Paul Stephenson and Assistant Commissioner John Yates, Britain’s top anti-terrorist officer, have resigned amid an intensifying scandal involving phone hacking and alleged police bribery. Both indicated that they quit to ensure the police force had stable leadership and no distractions in the run-up to the first Olympics in London since 1948, which have a 757 million-pound ($1.2 billion) security budget. And Olympics minister Hugh Robertson insisted that much of the security framework was already in place before counterterrorism minister Pauline Neville-

Jones left her job in May . “I am not concerned about the resignations in relation to Olympics security,” Robertson said Monday in statement to The Associated Press. “Pauline NevilleJones made a massive contribution to get this in a good place. The appointment of Chris Allison, as the Met assistant commissioner in charge of all of this, has also really driven it forward. He is the point man on Olympic security and I am 100 percent confident that we are where we ought to be.” Sebastian Coe, the organizing committee chairman for the London Games, also said he wasn’t concerned about the resignations.

many times from the opening minute of the match through the final penalty kick. Even so, they came away with something. Up until now, the closest thing to a coherent playing style any American squad displayed on a world stage is what the English used to call “hit and hope.” It involves defending countless attacks as if your life depended on it, then booting the ball up the field and hoping a teammate latches onto it — and somehow beats a crowd of defenders to score. But this one time, even in a loss, the U.S. women stuck their foot in the door and let their countrymen glimpse a wider world of possibilities. Given their legacy and continuing success, it’s only fitting that they’d be the first to break through soccer’s glass ceiling in America. The guess here is that you’ll see the benefits as soon as next summer, at the London Olympics, and not just because the U.S. women will be out for vengeance. They never lacked for motivation and they’ve already learned the game’s most

SHANGHAI — If China is feeling any pressure to maintain its superpower status in diving, it sure isn’t showing in the world championships. The host country won its fourth gold medal and fifth overall in the outdoor pool Monday, thrilling fans who cheered and chanted “China!” each time their divers appeared on the boards. Wang Hao and Chen Ruolin led all every round in easily winning the women’s 10-meter synchro after Li Shixin won the men’s 1-meter springboard and teammate He Min took the silver. Wang and Chen totaled 362.58 points. It was Chen’s third consecutive world title in synchro platform, including 2009 in Rome when she also teamed with Wang. China has won six straight world titles in the event. Since Chinese diving superstar Guo Jingjing retired in January, Chen has been considered her successor. “I don’t want to think too much about it,” she said. “My

performance will be affected. Although the 10-meter platform individual gold is also important, it is not my goal. My goal is the London Games.” Australia’s Alexandra Croak and Melissa Wu earned the silver at 325.92 — their country’s fourth runner-up finish in the event. “It definitely built the confidence that we got a medal,” said Wu, who finished second in 2007. “The competition is intense. It’s hard sometimes when you have to rely on someone else to do as well as you.” Christin Steuer and Nora Subschinski claimed Germany’s second bronze of the day with 316.29. “Our opponents are all on a high level, especially the German and Australia duo,” said Chen, who has been on China’s national team since 2003. “It’s very important to be in control and perform our best.” Wang and Chen received one perfect 10 for synchronization on their second dive. After ending the five-dive final with a backward 21⁄2 somersault with11⁄2 twists that barely created a splash, the women climbed out of the pool and hugged.

important lesson. Now it’s the men’s turn. It’s been a black mark on their record that a nation of 300 million has yet to produce even one striker good enough to sit on the bench of world powers like Spain, Brazil, Argentina, England or the Netherlands, let alone play in the first team. Anyone who thinks they’re getting their fair share of elite athletes should consider what the NBA’s dozen best point guards could do with a soccer ball if they grew up playing the game. So it’s long past time to hope we hit that jackpot. It’s time to start developing players who can tame the ball with their feet, move it and get it back with enough time and space to carve the same wide swath through the World Cup as their female counterparts. There will be plenty of time before then to start talking about a soccer boom. Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at jlitke(at)

to beat Brazil in the quarterfinals in a thrilling match, and then grinding down France. But as entertaining as they may be, the Americans have been making things harder on themselves than they need to be for almost a year now. They were upset by Mexico in regional qualifying, forced to beat Italy in a playoff to get the very last spot in Germany. They dropped their first game of the season, to Sweden, then lost to England for the first time in 22 years — so long ago Morgan hadn’t even been born yet. After winning their first two games in Germany handily, they lost to Sweden, the first U.S. loss ever in World Cup group play. “In the past, we’d always won everything,” Rampone said. “Those losses made our team what it is today. We need each other and you feel that, from the locker room to the time we step on the field.” But the Americans need more than a can-do attitude to keep pace in a game that is improving and evolving. Sundhage wants the U.S. to play a possession-oriented style similar to the one Japan and France worked to near perfection in Germany, saying the traditional American gameplan of grinding opponents down on defense and sending long balls up to the forwards is too predictable. The offense should develop through the midfield, not start up front. By working from flank to center and back out with series of multiple passes, the Americans can probe the defense for weaknesses and create more opportunities — including chances for players who wouldn’t normally score. The style also helps on defense. Opponents can’t score when the Americans are keeping the ball for large chunks of the game. “I think of it as a nice hybrid of the way the U.S. national team used to play and the way that the game is evolving into much like the men’s game, a possession, Barcelona-esque style,” Wambach said. “It hasn’t been without troubles. It’s sometimes gotten the best of us because we have some players, like myself, who are old school and like to get the ball in a more physical, direct style. And when things aren’t goingwell,IliketogobacktowhatI know.”

day night, losing 3-1 in penalty kicks after twice blowing leads in a 2-2 tie. “But there’s another World Cup in four years.” For some. The majority of the team will remain intact through London, but Rampone (36) and Boxx (34) are likely to call it quits after that. Wambach said it’s too early to say what she’ll do, but she is 31, and her body is showing the wear and tear from the fearless playing style that has earned her third place on the alltime World Cup scoring list with 13 goals. Wambach passed Michelle Akers (12) for top U.S. honors with her header in the104th minuteSunday,herfourthgoalofthe tournament. “I’m not thinking about that right now,” Wambach said when asked about her future. “I just want to spend some time with my teammates. This has been an emotional roller coaster ... and the Olympics are right around the corner. We’ll move on.” Part of what has always made the U.S. so strong is the smooth transition from one generation to another, and the U.S. might have its most promise since the days of Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Brandi Chastain. Solo, winner of the Golden Glove as the tournament’s top goalkeeper, is in the prime of her career at 29. Morgan and Cheney, both just 22, each finished the tournament with two goals. Cheney also had three assists while Morgan had one. Rapinoe displayed the accuracy and touch on the flanks so critical in coach Pia Sundhage’s desire for a possession-based offense, and has the energy and spunk to shoulder the burden of being the face of the team behind Wambach. No team found a way to contain speedy Heather O’Reilly, who makes a nice complement to Rapinoe on the opposite side of the field. Lloyd seemed to gain confidence in directing the offense as the tournament wore on, having one of her best games against Japan. That’s not to say there aren’t issues. The Americans achieved cult status with their grit and resilience in Germany, coming back

Let’s begin by not overstating the case. Predictions of a soccer boom in America have done more to hamstring the development of the world’s game here than all those well-organized, well-meaning parents who became youth coaches with no more than a vague idea of how it’s played. And just so we’re clear, there will be no explosion this time, either. After the U.S. women stunned Brazil and just about everybody else in a quarterfinal match at the Women’s World Cup, I wrote that if Americans didn’t fall in love with soccer after that, well, maybe they never would. They did. For exactly a week. But that’s how plenty of love affairs go: torrid one day, indifferent the next. Plenty of Americans already love soccer.

A gradual improvement Economists expect the Commerce Department to report an incremental rise in the number of homes that builders broke ground on last month. But the number of housing starts will still be down from its high point this year, in January. And that means it’s likely to be less than half the annual rate of 1.2 million that’s considered a healthy housing market. Economists agree that any significant improvement won’t happen until unemployment falls sharply.

Bank of America earnings The nation’s largest bank is expected to report a net loss of $8.6 billion to $9.1 billion for the second quarter. That’s the result of an $8.5 billion settlement with investors over poorquality mortgage bonds that were sold as securities and that went sour in the financial crisis. Investors want to know if there’s more bad news – such as a drop in trading income that hurt other banks’ revenue during the quarter.

Debt worries hit shares

Europe’s banking troubles and an impasse over lifting the U.S. government’s borrowing limit dragged down stock markets in the U.S. and Europe. Gold rose above $1,600 an ounce as investors sought safe places to park money. The results of stress tests on European banks came under more scrutiny. Eight banks failed the test to measure how well they would hold up under additional financial strain. But the tests didn’t take into account how banks would fare if Greece or Italy defaults.In the U.S., the debt limit debate remains at a standstill. The limit must be raised by Aug. 2 or the government risks a default.

NEW YORK -- News Corp.’s Rupert Murdoch is struggling to control the destiny of the company he began building six decades ago after a trusted deputy was arrested and Scotland Yard’s top official quit over ties to a suspect in the phone-hacking probe. Independent directors of New Yorkbased News Corp. have begun questioning the company’s response to the crisis and whether a leadership change is needed, said two people with direct knowledge of the situation who wouldn’t speak publicly. Rebekah Brooks, the former News International chief who Murdoch backed until last week, was arrested Sunday in London. “The shell of invulnerability that Rup-

ert Murdoch had around him has been cracked,” said James Post, a professor at Boston University’s School of Management who has written about Murdoch governance and business ethics. “His credibility and the company’s credibility are hemorrhaging.” Murdoch and his 38-year-old son, James Murdoch, are spending most of their time with advisers preparing for today’s hearing before a British parliamentary committee. They will face questions over their role in and responsibility for phone hacking that took place at their now-defunct News of the World tabloid. The company took out advertisements in national British newspapers this weekend to apologize

for the scandal. Before Monday, News Corp. shares had lost 17 percent since July 4, when the Guardian reported that News of the World employees had intercepted the voice mail of Milly Dowler, a schoolgirl who was later found murdered. The slump has shaved more than $6 billion off the combined value of the Class A shares and the Class B voting stock that gives the Murdochs control over the company. News Corp.’s independent directors, who hold nine of16 board seats, have expressed frustration over the quality and quantity of information they’ve received about the scandal and concern about management’s ability to handle the crisis given how slowly the company has responded, the person said. Some directors said Murdoch, the company’s 80-year-old chairman and

Creditors and lenders argued the chain would be worth more if it liquidated.

chief executive officer, appeared to be in denial over the fallout from the scandal in an interview he gave last week to the Wall Street Journal, one of News Corp.’s newspapers. News Corp.’s independent directors, including Dinh, Perkins and former British Airways CEO Rod Eddington, may have limited influence, given the Murdochs’ stock holdings, said Charles Elson, director of the John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance at the University of Delaware. “Rupert Murdoch controls the votes of the company through the Class B shares,” Elson said in an interview. “He can just replace them if he wants. They may do something, but it will be temporary. Maybe he becomes chairman, but this is still his company and he can do what he wants. When he controls the stock, he controls the board.”

Netflix & Blockbuster try to outdeal each other IF YOU’RE ONE of the many Netflix customers who was put out by the announcement that Netflix was increasing prices, Blockbuster wants to make an offer you can’t refuse: If you’re now a Netflix customer, Blockbuster is offering you a month for free, plus a slightly discounted monthly rate (which is cheaper than the equivalent Netflix plans). But it might be a good idea to wait before you decide to jump ship in righteous indignation over the villainous Netflix plan – the services differ substantially. According to Netflix, what they’ve actually done is split their DVD and web-streaming services. So while you were paying $9.99 per month for one DVD at a time and unlimited streaming movies, you’ll now end up paying $15 per month for two services – DVD by mail at $7.99, and unlimited streaming video for $7.99. For me, this plan actually works out better – I have Netflix but I only use their streaming service. I can send off for a DVD, but I’ve

ST. LOUIS — As the economic recovery sputters forward, banks continue to bleed revenue in such mainstays as commercial lending and, of course, mortgages. So they are increasingly catering to the only customers who have survived the Great Recession relatively unscathed: rich folks. Customers with more than $1 million in liquid assets can expect some extra coddling these days, as banks are adding services and staff to their wealth management divisions. The new focus for many banks stems largely from a simple lack of other options — as historic government bailouts wind down and sobered consumers and businesses grow increasingly allergic to new debt. Nearly a fourth of Americans are underwater on their homes, and so won’t be needing a mortgage; and starting or expanding a business into the current headwinds takes a brave and well-capitalized soul. Simultaneously, banks have seen their bedrocks of revenue from debit card and overdraft fees eroded by new federal regulations. By contrast, the 3.4 million people in North America holding more than $1 million in liquid assets actually grew their wealth by 9.1 percent last year, to $11.6 trillion, according to Merrill Lynch’s World Wealth Report released last month. The number of high-net-worth individuals in North America has also risen, growing 8.6 percent last year. Bank of America’s Global Wealth and Investment Management division, which serves high net worth individuals through its Merrill Lynch and U.S. Trust business units, saw its firstquarter revenue jump 11 percent, to $4.5 billion. When it released its wealth report, Merrill Lynch said high-net-worth individuals were expected to continue to shed their real estate investments and increase their equity and commodities allocations. So banks would be foolish not to follow the money, said Joe Hoffmeyer, principal of St. Louis-based Phoenix Financial Services Consulting and a former manager of First Banks’ wealth management division. “Every board of directors of every bank in the world wants to focus on wealth management now,” he said. PNC Bank is working on new online services for its wealth management customers so they can access income projections on their smartphones and contact PNC’s wealth management staff with questions about their accounts via email or text message. Those services are expected to be rolled out by the first quarter of 2012.

U.S. government debt is considered one of the safest bets around. A default would shake the confidence of investors around the world. Economists say a default would also drive up borrowing costs for everyone. Treasury yields would rise to compensate buyers for their higher risk. Treasurys are used to set interest rates throughout the economy. So mortgages and borrowing by companies and local governments would become more expensive for people. Financial analysts say it’s nearly impossible to predict exactly how a default would play out in the stock, bond and currency markets. They do say the immediate aftermath for stocks might look like the financial crisis in September 2008. In the month after Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy, the S&P 500 lost 28 percent. Bonds could also fall after a default — they’ll have lost their reputation for safety. Few investments would be considered safe. Fear has driven traders into precious metals, but gold is at $1,600 an ounce, so it’s not cheap. Some analysts say a default could freeze the short-term lending markets that keep money moving throughout the financial system. Treasurys and other government debt are widely used as collateral for loans in these markets. A default would shake the trust in that collateral. Lenders could respond by demanding more. That would force borrowers to sell other investments to meet those demands. A similar selling cycle spread turmoil across markets when Lehman collapsed. Panic selling might force Washington to quickly agree to raise the debt limit. Think back to 2008. After the House rejected a bailout for banks on Sept. 29, the Dow fell 777 points. Four days later, Congress approved a bailout. Matthew Craft, Kristen Girard • AP

This will likely be our hottest week of the summer and the peak of the heat will arrive on Thursday. What lies ahead will not be the worst heat wave we’ve ever had which occurred in July back in 1936. That’s when we had six straight record breaking days with temperatures ranging from 95 to 103 degrees. Today, the chance for a storm will be much less than on Monday now that a front has moved south of here. Starting tomorrow, the heat will intensify and on Thursday, readings here in town could reach 100. The above average temps should last into next week and by then, I’ll be more than ready for some relief. - Tom Clark

Eateries will improve kids menus

IN BRIEF Elder program set St. Luke’s Villa, formally Heritage House Retirement Community, will host a Meet-n-Greet at 2 p.m. on Thursday in the main lounge, 80 E. Northampton St., Wilkes-Barre. The guest speaker is Brenda D. Colbert, a certified elder law attorney from the Law Firm of Marshall, Parker, & Associates. Colbert will discuss essential estate planning tools, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advanced care planning. To register, call 826-1031.


Parents seeking healthier restaurant meals for their kids can start to look beyond chicken nuggets and macaroni-andcheese. At least 19 restaurant chains — including Burger King, Chili’s, Outback Steakhouse, Cracker Barrel, Denny’s and Friendly’s — said Wednesday that they will include

healthier options on their children’s menus. At least 15,000 restaurant locations will increaseservingsoffruitsandvegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat dairy. The items will have less fats, sugars and sodium. Less healthy foods like burgers and fries will still be on the menu, but the restaurants say they will do more to promote

healthier options. Chili’s, for example, will highlight a chicken sandwich with a side of pineapple or mandarin oranges on their kids’ menu. Burger King has recently reformulated children’s chicken nuggets so they include less sodium, and employees taking orders will now ask if customers want healthier apple fries instead of the standard “fries with that?”


The effort is part of a new National Restaurant Association initiative. To be part of the program, restaurants must include atleastonekids’menuitemthat is 600 calories or less and meet other nutritional requirements. A side dish worth less than 200 calories must also be included. The federal government will also soon require restaurants to post calories on their menus.

Red Cross benefit set The American Red Cross will benefit from an all-you-can-eatand-drink event from 3 to 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Triple K Saloon, Main Street, Edwardsville. There will be entertainment, a Chinese auction and prizes. Tickets are $25 per person, with all proceeds benefitting the Wyoming Valley chapter’s local Disaster Relief Fund. The event was created by Woody Meixsell, a past recipient of Red Cross’ assistance. Meixsell’s home was affected by fire nearly a year ago. For more information or to purchases tickets, contact Meixsell at 332-3085. Go to bat for lung health The American Lung Association is participating in the State Farm Go to Bat program. The program, in which supporters play an online baseball game, benefits nonprofit organizations based on the amount of participants and points scored. Supporters are asked to visit, select American Lung Association and play the game. Participants may play three consecutive times per day. State Farm will donate $18,000 to the charity with the highest game batting average once a week for 10 consecutive weeks. Also, an individual winner who goes to bat for the winning charity will be randomly selected and receive a trip for two to Games 3 and 4 of the 2011 World Series. A total of 10 winners will be drawn throughout the program, which will conclude on Sept. 26. The program will culminate during the World Series with a pre-game ceremony. State Farm will announce and present a $25,000 donation to the charity that finishes the campaign with the highest Go to Bat batting average. The local chapter of the American Lung Association asks all supporters to add the event information to their Facebook pages. Health briefs are limited to nonprofit entities and support groups. To have your health-oriented announcement included, send information to Health, Times Leader, 15 N. Main St., WilkesBarre, PA 18711-0250; by fax: 8295537; or e-mail Information must be received at least two weeks in advance.


Viveca Jensen, right, the creator of Piloxing, and her instructor Sara Vorce lead a class in the Toluca Lake, Calif., studio.

Piloxing a new cardio craze By CYNTHIA BILLHARTZ GREGORIAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The women inside the Webster Groves, Mo., studio looked as though they were channeling Muhammad Ali, Mikhail Baryshnikov and any of a dozen Hollywood starlets who have long lean torsos (think Gwyneth Paltrow). They stood, feet apart, abdomens sucked in, punching the air with their right fists. Their left hands were raised to their left ear in a protective manner as instructor Kristin Dabney egged them on. “Cellphones, ladies. Keep your left hand up near your ear,” she yelled over thumping music. “Punch punch punch punch.” The air inside The Scoop — A Pilates Studio was taking a brutal beating. Piloxing is the latest group cardio exercise craze. It’s an interdisciplinary program that combines the sculpting and flexibility of Pilates with the power, speed and agility of boxing. It also adds a healthy dose of dance moves including hip-hop, salsa and especially ballet, requiring immense core strength, balance and coordination. In Pilates, all movement should begin in what practitioners call the powerhouse — the hips, abs, lower and upper back, buttocks and inner thighs — and flow outward to the limbs. That explains why many of Piloxing’s moves have controlled ballet-like movements that work the lower body. When Joseph Pilates created his fitness

Kristin Dabney demonstrates piloxing, which combines Pilates with boxing.

program in the early 20th century, he initially called it Contrology and his first students were dancers who helped build on his ideas. Coincidentally, or not, Piloxing was created by Viveca Jensen, a Swedish dancer and trainer to Hollywood celebrities, to “physically and mentally empower women through fitness.” St. Louis Fitness Club on Hampton Avenue, Main Street Gym in St. Charles and the Jewish Community Center in Creve Coeur and Chesterfield also offer


Piloxing classes. During the Piloxing class at Scoop, Dabney led the class through a routine that went from boxing and hip hop moves to squatting with the knees turned out into a modified plie, as in ballet. The participants raised their left legs repeatedly in a controlled manner, first out in front, then to the side and finally to the back, until lactic acid burned in their right thighs. Then they switched to the other side and did the same. Sometimes they ran in place with choppy, rapid-fire foot falls while punching so quickly that their hands were practically a blur. Several women wore weighted gloves to help further tone the arms and maximize the cardiovascular effects. “Pilates movement fundamentals help you find your balance and recruit your muscles more efficiently,” said Dabney. “But there was one woman at the JCC who is a workout fanatic, and she said every muscle in her body was sore the next day. You recruit a whole set of muscles you don’t use in other workouts.” She compares building muscles with Pilates and Piloxing to opening a Russian nesting doll from the inside out — you start by working the small internal muscles in the core which help with balance and move outward to larger muscle groups. “And as we age, that element of balance becomes more critical so it’s pretty important for everybody,” she said.

Surgery is last option to treat throat disorder Q: I was diagnosed with “esophageal achalasia.” I did not have any reflux issues — just difficulty with food entering my stomach. I haven’t had any treatments in several years and food still hesitates at the point of stomach entry. Is soft diet the best cure? A: Achalasia is a coordination problem with the muscles involved in swallowing. There’s supposed to be a contraction of the lower esophageal muscles, followed by a relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter as food approaches. If there’s damage or degeneration to the nerves that control all this, achalasia will result. Symptoms of achalasia not only include difficulty with swallowing but also may include chest pain after eating; heartburn; cough; regurgitation of food; and weight loss. Although we can’t repair damaged or degenerated nerves, we can insert dilating tubes of gradually increasing diameter to stretch open the sphincter. There are also inflatable tubes which do the same thing. Success is seen in up to 75 percent of folks for a period of several years, but there’s a 3 percent risk of rupturing the esophagus. Botox, the same drug used to treat facial wrinkles, has been effective for one year in 60 percent of folks. Surgery to cut through some of the constricting esophageal muscles is the treatment of last resort. Moistened small mouthfuls of soft food may help to get past a constricted opening, but a sphincter’s tone may be too strong to allow food to get through. Acid blockers should be taken after any treatment intervention. Q: Could you please write about the dangers of mold in the home? A: Molds, which are a fungus, will grow anywhere indoors where there’s moisture. Molds produce allergy-provoking substances, irritants and may contain toxic substances that can make us sick. Fatigue, headaches, watery eyes, irritated lungs, shortness of breath, asthma and a myriad of health conditions can be linked to fungal toxins. Stachybotrys mold is considered to be the prototypical “toxic” mold. You may have seen this greenish-black mold growing on cellulose fiberboard or sheetrock in your damp basement. Air conditioning ducts and whole-house humidification units need to be watched for mold as well. If you’ve found mold in your home, it’s not important to identify the type of mold. Treat all mold as being potentially harmful. The first thing that needs to be done is to fix or clean up any leaks, and put a dehumidifier unit in your home. It’s impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores; some spores are airborne. For more information, here’s a link to an EPA guide to mold: moldguide.html.

Surveys say pet owners may be healthier, happier By DRS. KAY JUDGE AND MAXINE BARISH-WREDEN McClatchy Newspapers

LOOKING FOR a holistic way to reduce stress, cholesterol and obesity? Get a pet. Statistics show that 62 percent of American households own a pet. According to a national survey, most pet owners say companionship, love, company and affection are the No.1benefits to owning a pet. We know that pets make good companions and decrease loneliness, but numerous studies have shown other profound health benefits of owning a pet: 1. Pets help recovery from


heart attacks. A National Institutes of Health study of 421 adults found that dog owners had a better one-year survival after a heart attack, compared to those who did not own dogs. 2. Pets help us calm down. A study of 240 married couples showed that pet owners had lower heart rates and blood pressure as compared to those without pets. 3. Pets help reduce stress better than our human companions. Pet owners had less stress and quicker recovery from stress when they were with their pets as compared to when they were with their spouse or friend. 4. Pet owners have less obesi-

Selecting a healthier version of ice cream can be confusing with all the options in today’s stores. Here’s some advice from Gloria Tsang, a registered dietitian and author of the new book “Go Undiet”: • Go easy on premium ice cream. “Premium” means higher fat — typically, between 250 and 280 calories per serving compared to 180 calories for regular ice cream. That’s not necessarily bad if you can keep portion size to about half a cup. But choose a lower-fat version if you need several scoops to be happy. • Don’t write off low-fat products. If you tried one of these ice creams years ago and hated it, try again. New whipping technology has made many brands much creamier.

• Avoid mix-ins and syrups. Extra toppings add up quickly: an ounce of chocolate syrup adds 75 calories, for example, while a blob of whipped cream might be another 45. • Skip the shakes. Large milkshakes from fast-food and chain restaurants can pack as many as 1,500 calories. They also tend to be loaded with fat, sugar and even salt. • Try ice cream alternatives. Frozen yogurt and gelato typically are made with milk instead of cream, which can save 40 to 50 calories per half cup. Most sherbet (about 105 calories per half cup) and sorbet (about 100 calories) is made of fruit puree, sugar and water; sorbet is milkfree, while sherbet has low-fat milk added. Choose one that lists fruit puree as the first or second ingredient.

Are You Suffering With Pain,Tingling, or Numbness in Your Feet or Ankles?

Do what Ed Labatch did…He Called The Neuropathy Center! “I had very little feeling in my legs and feet that I couldn’t even drive. After treatment at the Neuropathy Center I can not only drive again but enjoy life like I used to… without pain.” I had neuropathy in my legs and had very little feeling to the point that I couldn’t even drive my car. I suffered for about three years. I couldn’t stand very long or do many of the regular activities that I loved to do with my wife. I found that I sat around a lot. After meeting with the professional staff at the Neuropathy Center I knew that there was hope for me. After just my second treatment I felt life in my legs again. I couldn’t believe it! My experience has been terrific! Now my wife Betty and I can continue to enjoy our active life doing the things we love including Polka dancing!! I would highly recommend anyone who is suffering from Neuropathy pain to make an appointment today.Their caring staff were never to busy to answer any & all of my questions… in fact we always look forward to our visit.

Not-so-friendly Facebook post might prompt family debtors to pay up Dear Abby: I loaned money to a couple of family members when I was overseas. They had fallen behind on their bills, so I sent them each $1,000 to get

caught up. It’s two years later, and I have yet to see a dime from either one of them. I have sent them both letters asking to have “some” money paid back; both sent me excuses about why they can’t pay anything. However, on Facebook they write about how they went shopping, joined a gym and so on. What can I do to get this settled? — Taken Advantage of in Minnesota Dear Taken Advantage Of: Try this

DEAR ABBY ADVICE ... post on your Facebook page: “It’s funny what short memories some people have. I loaned ‘Tom’ and ‘Geri’ $1,000 two years ago when they fell behind on some bills. Instead of repayment, I have received nothing but excuses — and all the while I see their postings about shopping at the mall and going to the gym. What DEADBEATS!” Maybe it will shame your relatives into paying up. Dear Abby: Do I have to stop wearing my wedding ring? My husband died three years ago. We had been


married 53 years and 12 days. Abby, I pledged “until death do us part.” I just can’t seem to make myself take off the ring he put on my finger so many years ago. I’m tired of being told that I “have” to give up something so precious to me. Is there a time limit, or is it OK for me to go ahead with wearing the ring and ignore the people who pester me about taking it off? Maybe a time will come when I’ll want to, but not now, not yet. Please give me some sound advice. — Arizona Widow Dear Widow: Please accept my sympathy for your loss. Widows and widowers usually remove their wedding ring at the point when they decide they would like to begin dating again.


When they do, some of them choose to move the ring from their left to the right hand. Others put it away as a treasured keepsake. There is no set time at which your wedding ring “must” come off. If and when you feel the time is right, it will happen — or not. Dear Abby: I’m 15 years old, and I’m afraid to kiss! I won’t date anyone because I’m afraid my kiss will suffer by comparison. I know no one becomes an expert without practice, but I don’t want anyone to be my first kiss. Several guys are into me, but I can’t date them because eventually they’ll want to kiss. It would be so embarrassing to be horrible at it. Any advice? — Too Freaked Out to Make Out

Dear Freaked Out: Kissing isn’t a competitive sport, so stop worrying that you won’t measure up. A kiss doesn’t have to be the way it’s portrayed in the movies, with heavy breathing and mouths agape. Whether a guy wants to kiss you isn’t as important as whether you WANT him to kiss you. If you do, all you have to do is close your eyes, tilt your head a bit to the side and lean in. He will take care of the rest.

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed 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.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know how to deal with passionate, intemperate people, and you’ll use this knowledge to succeed. You’ll read the signs and stay your distance until you feel kindness beckoning you forward. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Some are content to kill time, but you will strive for a much more amicable arrangement. You want time to favor you, to stop for you once in a while, and of course, you want to be able to borrow from it when you come up short. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll have a grievance or two. Some of the people around you need a wakeup call, and you’re the alarm clock. Once you get a few things off your chest, you’ll enjoy yourself much better. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Let the little joys add up while you let the little disappointments slip into the cracks. This is pretty easy. All you have to do is catch the joys and hold on to them so that your hands are too full to clasp any negativity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You sometimes equate wealth with hard work, but the reality is that often it doesn’t happen that way at all. Stay open to the possibility that good fortune may come without effort. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your body may send you signals that are more intelligent than those your mind sends. You will stumble upon an arrangement that is a perfect fit for you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re very independent now, and you refuse to get carried away with anyone else’s ideology. The oth-

ers want you on their side, but you feel an even stronger calling to do your own thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Busy people are the toughest to attract. Whether the relationship is business or personal, the rule is the same: The other person has to have room for you; otherwise, it won’t work. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Visit face to face whenever possible. You never know where the conversation will lead. You’ll likely wind up doing something that’s slightly out of character for you but so much fun! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a personal stake in what you’re doing. As for the others, they may need help getting involved. Invite them to increase their level of participation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Malls and casinos are purposely designed for visitors to get lost in them. This day will seem similarly patterned to delight, distract and tempt you away from your original plans. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may rise with a conflict already brewing in the recesses of your mind. Two ideas are at war with each other. You always have a right to adapt and change your position. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 18). You quickly learn what you need to learn in order to make a situation work. This may mean communicating differently with someone or adding new skills to your arsenal. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 15, 49, 11 and 26.

Southern readers rise in force to defend their use of the word ‘y’all’ Dear Abby: “Keeping It Real in Laguna Beach, Calif.” (May 27), who is embarrassed by the dialects of his Southern relatives, should learn some Southern hospitality! Yes, we may say “Ma and Pa,” “y’all,” “yonder” and “I reckon,” but we would not laugh or be embarrassed if a California relative came to visit. We’d be overjoyed and welcoming. “K.I.R.,” get off your high horse and get over yourself! If you visited, we’d show you around town, take you to see friends and relatives, and smother you with affection. We’d have big family gatherings, sit on the front porch and drink lemonade. We would never

DEAR ABBY ADVICE ridicule your different accent. Come spend some time with us “hicks.” We welcome everyone and are glad to have you. We’ll serve you white gravy and homemade buttermilk biscuits, pecan pie and sweet tea. And when you leave, we’ll give you a big, air-constricting hug and some “sugar” (Southern slang for kisses) and say, “Y’all come back now, ya hear?” — Georgia Girl Dear Georgia Girl: To heck with “K.I.R.” — invite me! You’ll be pleased to know your fellow south-


erners came out in force against “K.I.R.’s” uppity attitude. Read on: Dear Abby: “Keeping It Real” is living in a fantasy world — a sad one at that. Our country is made up of all kinds of people. How can he not see the charm in a simple, down-home accent? Using different regional phrases or expressions doesn’t make a person stupid or uneducated — a fact “K.I.R.” might understand if he were more educated himself. I adore my Southern heritage. I love being able to tell the difference between the drawl of someone from the Carolinas versus the Cajun tones of folks from Louisiana. There’s richness to those voices. You can almost hear the history by listening to someone speak. I’d much rather hear


about “Ma and Pa” than be repeatedly subjected to words like “dude” or “gnarly.” All I can say to “K.I.R.” is — bless your heart! — Proud Belle in Arkansas Dear Abby: Why would “K.I.R.” assume that because his Southern family doesn’t live in an “uneducated” area, their accents are “fake”? His generalizations show how little he knows about the rich and varied Southern culture. He should read Tennessee Williams, Eudora Welty or Truman Capote, or watch a documentary about the South. In other words, educate HIMSELF to keep from coming off as embarrassingly shallow in front of his relatives. — Southern Yankee in Texas

Dear Abby: I’m guessing the country folk are having fun with him. I have a master’s degree in English and can quote Milton and Yeats. But around snobs like this, I’d go all “Jed Clampett” so fast he’d think he’s been slogwalloped by a she-critter without no young-uns. — Brian in North Carolina Dear Abby: That fool can kiss my grits! — Kaye in Virginia To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed 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.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have terrific social instincts. You’re likely to pull a quality new friend into your world just because you were the one who said “hi” when no one else did. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Osho, a great spiritual teacher of the 20th century, said that all artistic activity is on the way toward becoming religious. Today your creativity will lead you to a sacred place in your own soul. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may have trouble relating to someone until you broaden your base of acceptable commonalities. You are of the same species on the same planet, and there is enough to agree on right there. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Being loved by another person is not nearly as fulfilling as loving another person. You will be happily occupied in the activities that demonstrate your affection. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know that by engaging a passionate person who is already in a certain kind of mood, you are asking for trouble. However, as a risktaker, you may find it irresistible anyway. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sure, there are aspects of your history that you tend to glamorize. And yet, it is your firm opinion that the future will hold ever-more amazing treasures. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You deserve to deal strictly with people of integrity. Therefore, the ones who tell you to buy what you don’t need have to go. Also, there’s no time to entertain those who wouldn’t do the same for you.

HOW TO CONTACT: Dear Abby: PO Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The one who said “truth does not blush” was not paying close enough attention. The truth can be very uncomfortable to hear today, and it will provoke a visceral response. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People are talking about you and saying just what you wanted them to say. But this should come as no surprise to you. You’ve been working pretty diligently to form a certain public image, and now your work is paying off. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Once a stressful situation passes or a problem is resolved, you will feel better than new. Indeed, you will be better than new, having grown in strength and confidence from the experience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you physically can or cannot do might affect your plan and your thinking. But don’t let it affect your opinion of yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Avoid twisting yourself up into a knot to prove how flexible and willing to please you are. Instead, walk tall. It’s better to err on the side of rigidity now. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 19). Your tenacity and stamina are marvelous attributes that you’ll apply to remarkable feats. Through the next five weeks, good fortune comes by way of community projects and sales. You’ll be shown affection and will enjoy a large number of friends and acquaintances. Libra and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 20, 14, 12 and 30.
