LENOX TWP. – Jim Zick leased some of his 500-acre farm in Susquehanna County for $50 an acre to Cabot Oil & Gas back in 2007, but the nearby Mountain View School District stands to make considerably more from the drilling that began in May. “The school is hoping that they’ll be getting royalties from our well,” said Zick, who also is the Mountain View School Board president. School property is located 5,600 feet from the well. Four of the six school districts in Susquehanna County have signed natural gas leases and one has a well operating on its property. In contrast to a situation in Dallas Township, where parents and residents have objected to two proposed natural gas metering stations to be built adjacent to See DRILLERS, Page 14A

POLICE BLOTTER NANTICOKE – Firefighters from Nanticoke and several surrounding communities were called to Reilly Finishing Technologies on West Alden Road around 9 p.m. Saturday for a report of smoke coming from the building. There was no fire and what appeared to be smoke was hot air that built up inside escaping from the building. The rooftop dampers that vent the building had been closed causing the buildup.

Three licenses are revoked

The report was put together by Gov. Corbett’s Marcellus Shale advisory commission. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

Following the release of Gov. Tom Corbett’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission’s final report Friday, statewide groups representing municipalities, the gas industry and environmental concerns weighed in on the commission’s recommendations. The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors both applauded the commission’s recommendation of levying a local impact fee to compensate municipalities for impacts on infrastructure, the environment, public safety and other areas caused by the drilling industry. The Township Supervisors Association also agreed with the commission’s decision to leave land-use control and decision making to local communities. Other groups were less positive in their assessments of the report. Some of the harshest criticism of the report came from the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center, whose director, Sharon Ward, called the report a missed opportunity to examine the broad impacts of Marcellus Shale drilling, both positive and negative. “Instead, it has made recommendations that read like an industry wish list,” Ward said in a statement. Ward said the impact fees the report recommends be assessed drillers to limited in focusing only on demonstrated impacts, but failing to address broader statewide impacts to water and air quality, societal impacts and habitat disruption. “Without this discussion, the report is incomplete,” she said. The four environmental consultants appointed to the commission, representing the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Pennsylvania Environmental Council, The Nature Conservancy and Western Pennsylvania Conservancy also expressed concerns about several of the panel’s recommendations, including: • the lack of explicit language prohibiting future surface drilling in state forest land, • the lack of clear environmental or surface impact reduction standards relating to the concept of pooling, and • the failure to specifically include Growing Greener or the Environmental Stewardship Fund in the local impact fee provisions. “We consider the report to be a meaningful first step toward improving Pennsylvania’s oversight of shale gas extraction, but additional improvements must be accomplished as the debate shifts to the General Assembly,” the four environmental representatives said in a joint statement. The Marcellus Shale Coalition, a gasindustry group with several member companies represented on the commission, did not discuss specific recommendations of the commission.

Police late to Norway shooting

B R I E F

Gunman fired for 1.5 hours at island before police could get helicopter and boat to the scene. The Associated Press

AP PHOTO

Blunt sings at open-air festival

In this picture taken late Friday, British singer-songwriter James Blunt performs on the main stage during the 36th Paleo Festival, in Nyon, Switzerland.

OSLO, Norway — Police arrived at an island massacre about 1.5 hours after a gunman first opened fire, slowed because they didn’t have quick access to a helicopter and then couldn’t find a boat to make their way to the scene just several hundred yards offshore. The assailant surrendered when police finally reached him, but 82 people died before that. Survivors of the shooting spree have described hiding and fleeing into the water to escape the gunman, but a police briefing Saturday detailed for the first time how

long the terror lasted — and how long victims waited for help. The shooting came on the heels of what police told The Associated Press was an “Oklahoma city-type” bombBreivik ing in Oslo’s downtown: It targeted a government building, was allegedly perpetrated by a homegrown assailant and used the same mix of fertilizer and fuel that blew up a federal building in the U.S. in 1995. In all, at least 92 people were killed in the twin attacks that police are blaming on the same suspect, 32-year-old Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik. A SWAT team was dispatched to the island more than 50 minutes after people va-

cationing at a campground said they heard shooting across the lake, according to Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim. The drive to the lake took about 20 minutes, and once there, the team took another 20 minutes to find a boat. Footage filmed from a helicopter that showed the gunman firing into the water added to the impression that police were slow to the scene. They chose to drive, Sponheim said, because their helicopter wasn’t on standby. “There were problems with transport to Utoya,” where the youth-wing of Norway’s left-leaning Labor Party was holding a retreat, Sponheim said. “It was difficult to get a hold of boats.” AP PHOTO At least 85 people were killed on the island, but police said four or five people Norway’s Prime Minister Jens Stolwere still missing. tenberg, right, addresses the media.

32 dead in train accident

Chinese bullet train lost power A after being struck by lightning

Saturday and was hit from behind by another train, knocking two of its carriages off a bridge in eastern China, killing at least 32 people, state media reported. The official Xinhua News Agency said four cars on the second train also derailed, but it did not say how serious that was. The first train was traveling from the Zhejiang provincial capital of Hangzhou when the accident occurred in Wenzhou city at about 8:30 p.m., Xinhua said. One carriage from the first train fell about 65 to 100 feet from an elevated section of track, Xinhua said. Pictures on the Internet showed one badly damaged car lying on its side by the bridge and the second car leaning against the bridge after landing on its end.

Refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia are seeing thousands of new refugees each week. By JASON STRAZIUSO Associated Press

BALI, INDONESIA

U.S. tough on Korea talks Tentative steps by North and South Korea to repair relations are not enough to warrant renewed multination nuclear disarmament talks, the U.S. said Saturday at an Asian security conference where it also took a tough line on resolving tensions in the South China Sea. Declaring the United States a “resident power” with vital strategic interests throughout the Asia-Pacific, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said North Korea must do more to improve ties with the South before Washington will consider resuming talks aimed at getting Pyongyang to abandon nuclear weapons in return for concessions.

‘Hitler’s wall’ at museum The gray, concrete, heavily scarred slabs that arrived at the National World War II Museum this week are more than just chunks of an old wall to historians. The slabs are part of Nazi Germany’s Atlantic Wall, a string of defenses ordered by Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in 1940. The defenses, also known as “Hitler’s wall,” stretched 3,200 miles from France to Norway and were designed to stop, or at least slow, the Allies from advancing inland during an invasion. Allan Millette, a history professor and director of the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans, said the relic is a portal to studying what happened in 1944 and 1945, when Allied forces penetrated the wall and the tide began to turn against Germany. CAIRO

Knife attack on protesters Groups of men armed with knives and sticks attacked thousands of protesters trying to march to the headquarters of Egypt’s military rulers Saturday, setting off fierce street clashes and leaving dozens injured, most lightly. Security fired tear gas to disperse the crowd. The clashes come as tensions have been rising between the military council that took control of the country after a popular uprising ousted exPresident Hosni Mubarak and activists who want them to move faster in bringing former regime officials to justice and setting a date for the transition to civilian rule. An estimated 10,000 people set out from downtown Cairo’s Tahrir Square but were stopped.

No relief for Midwest, Northeast High temperatures are suspected or confirmed cause in more than a dozen deaths around the country. By JIM FITZGERALD Associated Press

NEW YORK — A heat wave that spread from the Midwest to the Northeast tormented millions of people with blasts of 100-degree temperatures and bog-like humidity as blackouts struck neighborhoods and deaths were blamed on the hot weather. There was little hope that Saturday would bring much relief until the evening, with the National Weather Service warning of excessive heat in several states, including parts of Oklahoma, Indiana, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. It predicted “oppressive heat” with temperatures at least in the 90s. On Friday, the mercury in Newark, N.J.,

100. New York City hit 104 degrees, just 2 short of its all-time high, and with the oppressive humidity, it felt like 113. In Baltimore, a homeless Dale Brown said he buys a $3.50 day pass to ride the commuter rail system to stay cool — and sober. In Philadelphia, 50 of the city’s 70 pools operated on 45-minute cycles to give everyone a chance to get in. Some New Yorkers were unable to take dips to cool off at some beaches in Brooklyn and Staten Island after millions of gallons of raw sewage spilled from a wastewater treatment plant. In central Pennsylvania, a 63-year-old man was found dead Friday night in a third-floor apartment without ventilation or air conditioning. The temperature inside was estimated at more than 110 degrees. A 94-year-old Carroll Township man also died Friday after his air conditioner stopped working because of a tripped circuit breaker.

DADAAB, Kenya — The World Food Program can’t reach 2.2 million Somalis in desperate need of aid in militant-controlled areas of Somalia, WFP’s director said Saturday, meaning refugee camps in nearby Kenya and Ethiopia are likely to continue seeing thousands of new refugees each week. The needs of those in Somalia’s expanding famine zone are extraordinary, prompting par- The drought ents to sweep has created a up their small triangle of children and start a danger- hunger where ous walk that the borders of can last days or Ethiopia, Keweeks — one that many die nya and Somaon. Livestock lia meet. have perished, and crops no longer grow after consecutive rains failed to fall in south-central Somalia. The journey is so long and so perilous that few Somalis are eager to return to their war-torn homeland. So many people are in need in Somalia because the militant group al-Shabab won’t let aid in. The group, in fact, denies a famine is taking place, disputing the U.N.’s view that tens of thousands of people have already died. The drought has created a triangle of hunger where the borders of Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia meet.

No breakthrough at latest debt crisis meeting By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama met for less than an hour Saturday with congressional leaders in debt crisis talks, and a leading Republican said afterward that top lawmakers were “committed to working on new legislation” to cut federal spending and avert an unprecedented U.S. default. There were no immediate

signs of a breakthrough, however. The lawmakers and Obama were unsmiling as the meeting began, and most of them avoided reporters when they left the White House. In a statement released afterward, the White House said, “Congress should refrain from playing reckless political games with our economy. Instead, it should be responsible and do its job, avoiding default and cutting the deficit.” Senate

Republican leader Mitch McConnell issued a somewhat more upbeat statement of his own. “The president wanted to know that there was a plan for preventing national default,” he said. “The bipartisan leadership in Congress is committed to working on new legislation that will prevent default while AP PHOTO substantially reducing Wash- House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Barack Obama at White House meeting Saturday. ington spending.”

Dr. Jere Packard, principal speaker of the event, asked the

question “Was it worth it?” referring to the sacrifices made during the war. Packard cited current industrialization and modernization of South Korea as a result of the intervention of the U.S. military during the war. "I am just happy that so many people gathered to commemorate the sacrifices of servicemen during the Korean War," said Frank Bernoski, a veteran of the war. Following the ceremony inside the courthouse, flowered wreaths were laid in front of the

Following his graduation from Coughlin High School and college, Kevin worked as a computer consultant and a computer programmer. Most recently, he worked for Dunn and Bradstreet.

Firefighters and EMS crews had to sort through the 30 accident victims – 26 volunteers plus four mannequins – separating the living from the dead and marking the most seriously injured victims for first treatment, based on wounds and afflictions simulated with makeup. “He has a puncture wound to the face with associated bleeding, and I’m giving him first degree burns on his arms and legs,” Geisinger Life Flight medic Robert Sembrat said as he painted volunteer accident victim Jack Bourbeau with red stage makeup. “His face is a little bit gray, some poor circulation going on, maybe some smoke inhalation. I’d consider him a first priority; depends on how much he wants to play it up.” The volunteer victims were then transported by emergency crews to area hospitals Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, Moses Taylor Hospital and Community Medical Center Scranton, where the drill continued. One volunteer was taken by Life Flight helicopter to Geisinger in Plains Township.

Following the triage exercise the plane and a simulated jet fuel spill were set alight, simulating a runway fire for responding fire departments to extinguish. “This is something that really fans out for us,” said airport Public Safety Director George Bieber. . “It helps us maintain our certification with the (Federal Aviation Administration,) the hospitals use it for their state Department of Health certification and the ambulances report it to the state Department of Health and it helps with their certification.” The FAA requires the airport conduct a live major disaster exercise every three years, though Bieber said the airport runs “tab-

letop” disaster simulation drills annually with area emergency response agencies. Airport Director Barry Centini said about an hour into the drill he thought the response was going well. Airport fire crews were on scene within 2 minutes and firefighters within 5 minutes were pulling victims from the plane simulator. The first crews from surrounding departments arrived within 15 minutes. The exercise made for a macabre scene, but it was also a necessary one.“We’ve had nothing on the commercial end, but on the private side we’ve had some crashes,” Centini said. “We had some fatalities here back in the ’80s.”

According to the Wyoming Valley Red Cross website, "The Wyoming Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross responds to local disasters in our area 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our volunteers provide immediate assistance with basic needs following fires, floods and other local disasters. All in all our volunteers respond to over 70 disasters each year."

"I honestly don’t know what I would have done if the Red Cross hadn’t been there," added Meixsell. I hope I can give a little bit back to them today." "People need to know that there’s help available in the time of need." Meixsell thanked the owners of Triple K Saloon and Boulevard Bakery in Wilkes-Barre and everyone who volunteered to make the benefit a success.

He scored early with his latest single “One More Drinkin’ Song” and “Good Ride Cowboy,” a song he co-wrote for Garth Brooks in 2005. Niemann’s rocking band played a blistering cover of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and Joy” interlaced with a little bit of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” before Niemann finished up with his first No. 1 single “Lover, Lover.”

Shelton was next, taking the stage with a raucous version of “All About Tonight” followed by an equally fine “Some Beach.” Shelton then went into a long rambling speech about the songs he grew up listening to through his brother’s and sister’s locked doors before surprising the crowd with a medley of “Play That Funky Music” (which was probably more Vanilla Ice than Wild Cherry), “Centerfold” and “My Prerogative.” He also mentioned how happy he is to be back at his “day job” after spending two months in Los Angeles as a judge on “The Voice,” before getting back to business with fine renditions of the ballads “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” “She Wouldn’t Be Gone” and his first hit “Austin.” Shelton then capped his 50minute set with rocking versions of “Hillbilly Bone” (a song he originally recorded with Trace Adkins) and “Honey Bee,” his latest No. 1.

Paisley, wearing jeans, a white cowboy hat and a black T-shirt with “That’s What She Said” emblazoned in white, then took the stage for a very short solo acoustic intro of “This Is Country Music” before his whole band – known as the Drama Kings – kicked in on “Mud on the Tires.” Other early highlights of Paisley’s performance included “Ticks,” the ballad “She’s Everything” and a cool version of “Celebrity,” complete with a funny video featuring a bigheaded Paisley muppet and Jimmy Kimmel. Shelton joined Paisley for a good rendition of Paisley’s “Water” (the song that inspired the tour’s theme) and then Paisley and his band played the title track from his latest album, “This Is Country Music,” as images of past superstars such as Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck and Merle Haggard flashed across the giant video screen. Early arrivals could check out the carnival-like water park that took over the parking lot and some music on the second stage by Sunny Sweeney, Brett Eldredge and Edens Edge. Paisley’s tour will be at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, N.J., on Sept. 23.

Fans leave flowers and notes at the London home of Amy Winehouse, who died Saturday. She was last publicly seen at a London concert on Wednesday.

By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press

LONDON — Amy Winehouse, the beehived soul-jazz diva whose self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent, was found dead Saturday in her London home, police said. She was 27. Winehouse shot to fame in 2006 with the album “Back to Black,” whose blend of jazz, soul, rock and classic pop was a global hit. It won five Grammys and made Winehouse — with her black beehive hairdo and oldfashioned sailor tattoos — one of music’s most recognizable stars. But her personal life, with its drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders and destructive relationships, soon took over her career. Police confirmed that a 27year-old female was pronounced

dead at the home in Camden Square northern London; the cause of death was not immediately known. London Ambulance Services said Winehouse had died before the two ambulance crews it sent arrived at the scene. Singer and actress Kelly Osbourne, who helped Winehouse check into a drug addiction treatment facility in 2008, was one of many who grieved for the singer on Twitter. “I cant even breath right now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy and will never forget the re-

al you!” she tweeted. The singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, had arrived in New York this weekend to prepare for his U.S. performing debut Monday night at the Blue Note jazz club, but upon receiving news of his daughter’s death was heading back home to London to be with his family, his publicist Don Lucoff said.

Marcellus Shale, liquor privatization and Megan’s law on schedule

Some hope to add to Pa. lawmakers’ long agenda By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG — State lawmakers have a pile of work awaiting their return to Harrisburg in September, from redistricting and Marcellus Shale regulations and taxes to state liquor store privatization, the next decade of transportation projects and school vouchers. They also may finish rewriting abortion clinic regulations, ban texting or cell phones for drivers, close Megan’s Law reporting loopholes, make the unemployment compensation fund solvent, allow school districts to lay off employees for economic reasons and revise the Right-toKnow Law. Predictions are a bit easier this year with the House, Senate and governorship in Republican hands after eight years of power sharing under Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell. But no one knows for sure how much of that will get accomplished before Christmas, or what other unforeseen topic might arise in the Capitol. “The legislative agenda is always like a river, moving at differ-

ent rates, and sometimes you hit a period of rapids where things move quickly,” said Senate Republican spokesman Corbett Erik Arneson. “Other times you’re just (at) a slow, meandering pace. There’s certainly not a shortage of significant issues to get done this year.” Harrisburg’s legions of lobbyists, special interests and others with a stake in the legislative process are ready to supply suggestions about what else might get added onto the fall workload. Beth Winters, a lobbyist for the state school boards’ association, said one of the group’s top priorities is to rewrite the rules under which districts reimburse cyber charter schools, an issue that became more acute after lawmakers and Gov. Tom Corbett eliminated the state’s $224 million subsidy. Business groups would love to see new limits regarding where civil lawsuits can be filed, similar to existing rules for medical mal-

practice actions. David W. Patti, chief executive of the Pennsylvania Business Council, said that would build on the newly enacted “joint and several” law that means all defendants are no longer automatically on the hook for 100 percent of damages. “I think that Gov. Corbett and the legislative leaders who pushed so hard for the Fair Share Act understood that was Act1of a three- or four-act play, that there are other pieces of the puzzle that have to come together,” Patti said. Environmental organizations are focusing on what PennEnvironment director David Masur calls “low-hanging fruit,” many proposals that have already been passed by one chamber or the other. His wish-list includes establishing “green buildings” standards for energy efficiency in new government buildings or larger structures, passing a measure to address nonfarm fertilizer pollution, revamping solar energy credits and enacting legislation

regarding wind farms on Lake Erie. “I think that for, especially, members in the southeast or members who want to look moderate, they’re freebies,” Masur said. The state’s prosecutors are hoping to see Megan’s Law updated to address out-of-state offenders and registration rules for the homeless, adequate funding for the state police crime lab and wiretapping law that better addresses modern technology, said Richard Long, executive director of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. They are also monitoring efforts to cut prison costs. “We just want to make sure whatever’s done does not jeopardize public safety in any way,” Long said. The American Civil Liberties Union is largely playing defense on such issues as new abortion regulations, an identification

mandate for voters and immigration, said state legislative director Andy Hoover. The organization also supports passage of juvenile justice bills regarding access to lawyers and how underage defendants are shackled. “It’s unfortunate that we’re in the situation where we have a Legislature that is hostile to civil rights,” Hoover said. Joan Benso, president of Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, wants lawmakers to work on teacher evaluation standards that take student performance into account and the health insurance exchanges under the federal health care law, and watch closely as the Department of Public Welfare begins to exercise the broader power it was recently granted. “If child-care subsidy eligibility is cut, it will hurt many families — particularly those who live in counties where the cost of living

is higher,” Benso said. County officials favor a bill that allows all counties the ability to eliminate the position of jury commissioner, said Doug Hill with the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania. The group also would like to see increases in the limit for mandatory bidding on contracts, currently at $10,000 — a figure that dates back to the 1990s, he said. The state AFL-CIO wants to see funding for the new “industry partnerships” bill regarding worker training and more emphasis on job creation, said state president Rick Bloomingdale. He also sees a need for infrastructure spending beyond transportation projects. “We’d like to see them figure out policies that help create jobs, bring jobs to Pennsylvania, not to steal jobs, not destroy jobs,” Bloomingdale said. “Part of that’s education funding. I know that’s certainly not on the agenda.”

Written by Rob Viehman

Missouri News

Given the fact that Crawford County Coroner Paul Hutson is owed more than $1,000 in back mileage, isn’t provided office space, can’t drive his county provided vehicle full time as he needs to, doesn’t get any county health insurance and only makes $1.71 per hour, why on earth would he continue to do that job? Everybody knows why. It’s good for his funeral home business.

Until we hold Public Officials in the Coroner’s Office accountable and prohibit them from 1. Soliciting Funeral Arrangements 2. Discussing Funeral Arrangements 3. Accepting Funeral Arrangements while engaged in the public trust, in an inherent conflict with one’s private interests, we will NEVER have an ethical foundation to build the TRUST we deserve. To promote ones self interest with people at their most vulnerable time (not with a sales pitch, but perhaps a hug when needed most, a gentle reminder that they can handle their funeral needs or to discuss funeral/cemetery issues, while acting in the capacity of LUZERNE COUNTY CORONER/DEPUTY CORONER) is unethical and inappropriate.

CAMPAIGN Continued from Page 1A

Marino – Marino for Congress – by $63. Ed Mitchell, who had worked as Kanjorski’s campaign media consultant, said he does not believe Kanjorski, now 74, will run for a 14th term in Congress. But Kanjorski has never told him definitively. And Kanjorski declined to give a straightforward answer that he’s mounting a run when he was interviewed by The Times Leader last week. “I can honestly say I haven’t given it any thought,” he said.

As to the payments to K&K Real Estate, she said as long as market value is being paid, there’s nothing wrong with such payments. Brandenberger said that while campaigns can “wind down,” their accounts following a loss at the polls or voluntary retirement, they are not obligated to. “There’s no time saying when they need to completely dissolve the committee,” she said. Payments can continue Theoretically, the campaign could continue paying Battista, K&K Real Estate and any other “allowed” expenses until it’s out of money. Battista, who is identified on campaign finance documents as “computer operator,” lives in Moosic and has worked for the

campaign since 2009. Though she’s listed as “computer operator,” Kanjorski said her duties are much more extensive, including data entry, filing paperwork and research. Her first paycheck from the campaign totaling $77 was received on Feb. 24, 2009. Since then, the pay has risen steadily from $355 per week, which she earned between April 1, 2009 and Feb. 2, 2010, to $382 per week, which she collected from Feb. 11, 2010 through Aug. 3, 2010. That amount rose to $412 beginning with an Aug. 19, 2010 paycheck and continuing through Jan. 19, 2011. Since that time, Battista, who did not return a call seeking comment for this story, has earned $415.46 per week from the campaign. “She does a great job,” said Kanjorski. “She’s a great girl.” As of June 30, the campaign had $81,006.13 cash on hand. “Do you know how long it

One of the big benefactors from the PAC in the last two years was also K&K Real Estate, which received $300 per month for rent of the same South Franklin Street building. That’s on top of the $1,000 per month rent the campaign also paid. Also receiving payment was Peter A. Kanjorski, who received a $2,000 per month consulting fee for the campaign. In the two-year cycle that ended Dec. 31, Kanjorski’s nephew received $50,000 and K&K received $7,200.

The campaign did make one contribution this year to a political campaign, namely $1,000 to the Patrick Murphy for state Attorney General. Kanjorski and Murphy were members of Congress and both lost re-election bids last year. Murphy, who lives in suburban Philadelphia, graduated from King’s College and his brother J.J. had been a Wilkes-Barre city administrator. Murphy, a Democrat who lost his own re-election bid for Congress last fall, closed out his campaign committee last month with no money in the bank or debts owed.

But his time since leaving the halls of Congress has been spent using a combination of his precongressional days and the skills he’s learned over the past two decades. “I’ve been getting back to my old habits as a lawyer, advising and consulting in both law and government,” he said. But he said as the offers have piled up, he’s declined many because he’s “not really interested in any full-time positions.” “I want to hunt and peck and choose,” Kanjorski said as he ran his fingers through his thinning gray hair. He’s also been sought after by multiple candidates, none of whom he’d identify, that he said are looking to run against Barletta next year. The people approached him, he claims, to make sure he wasn’t running and to seek guidance and advice about a run. He said he told them all the same things, namely that they should run to do something important, not just to be a

congressman, and he suggested they wait until the state legislature redistricts the congressional lines to see what district they may wind up in. Redistricting factor Every 10 years after the U.S. Census, states are required to redefine congressional districts. Pennsylvania will lose one seat in Congress, necessitating the realignment. The state currently has a Republican majority in the state House of Representatives and Senate, and Gov. Tom Corbett is a Republican. So it’s assumed that the Republican-heavy districts will be fortified. And in districts like the 11th, where Democrats are the majority party when it comes to registration, it’s likely boundaries will be moved around to make the Democratic lead softer or eliminate it all together by making a neighboring Democratic district even more Democrat-heavy. Christopher Borick, a political science professor at Muhlenberg College near Allentown, called any possibility that Kanjorski could run again “a long shot.” “The combination of his age and his political liabilities that helped end his tenure in office are working against him,” Borick said. While his political capital, name recognition and loyalty CLARK VAN ORDEN FILE PHOTO/THE TIMES LEADER among long-time supporters could mean something, he said it Paul E.

DRILLERS Continued from Page 1A

Dallas School District property, schools in Susquehanna County have embraced the Marcellus Shale boom. But there is a significant difference between the situations in the two areas; districts to the north are earning hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in leasing and royalty payments, which they are using to offset state funding cuts and to pay for capital projects. In Dallas, the construction of metering stations and pipelines comes with no meaningful boost in revenue. The Mountain View School District leased 96 acres of its land to Cabot in 2009 for $5,750 an acre, or more than $500,000. Cabot is limited to subsurface activities on school property from a well pad on an adjacent site and the district will receive 20 percent in royalties from the agreement. Zick will receive 12 ½ percent in royalties from the operation. A drilling rig on the Zick property can be seen from the high school parking lot off Route 106, just above a row of pine trees. Cabot plans to drill a total of six wells on the property, and is working on the fourth. Hydraulic fracturing, sometimes called “fracking,” when operators use millions of gallons of water and chemicals to free up gas trapped in the Marcellus Shale, hasn’t begun on the Zick site, but could start by August. George Stark, a Cabot spokesman, estimates the Zick well will begin flowing natural gas to the Tennessee Gas interstate pipeline by the end of the year.

The district lost about $1 million in state funding this year, but the extra money was able to offset those shortfalls and keep the tax rate steady for property owners within Susquehanna County. Those living in Wyoming County saw a decrease in tax millage for the 2011-12 school year. “I’m thrilled there was no rise in my property taxes,” said Suzanne St. Pierre, parent of a recent Elk Lake High School graduate and resident of Auburn Township. “This is bringing wealth to the community.” According to state law, school districts cannot use money from BILL TARUTIS PHOTOS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER property transactions to balance the budget, but the royalties from Cows graze near the Zick gas well in Kingsley, Susquehanna County. The well is on the property of Jim Zick. producing wells are considered a consistent source of revenue.

No wells in sight At Montrose Area, two properties owned by the district have been leased at two different prices to two different companies. Superintendent Michael Ognosky said the district began negotiations with Alta Resources LLC to lease a property in Choconut Township in March 2009 for $2,380 an acre, and seven months later was able to nab a $5,750 an acre deal with Cabot for property in Bridgewater Township. “In seven months the market just popped,” he said.

tained the district has the children’s safety in mind. The lease has 33 addendums, including a non-surface clause, to control the district land while still being able to bring in some additional funds. “It’s a distant hope for this to happen at a school where 50 percent of the student body qualify for free and reduced lunch,” he said. “As long as there are no safety concerns and the infrastructure of the campus and students are safe, being a lifelong resident, it’s a welcome opportunity for Susquehanna County.” He also said anti-industry groups have utilized the school building for rallies and events, and rumors periodically swirl through the community about the progress of the district’s wells. During the outbreak of the H1N1 virus, or swine flu, in 2009, the school board voted to offer students bottled water instead of allowing them to drink from fountains to prevent spreading the virus. “Rumors were rampant that the schools’ water was bad,” said Bush. “Somebody called the DEP (state Department of Environmental Protection) and they had to investigate it.” Other rumors stemmed from the replacement of the elementary school’s water pump. Bush said he’s had people from New York City call his office asking if the swimming pool was no longer usable due to water contamination from the wells. Bush said Cabot has been accommodating to the school on certain issues, such as truck traffic near the elementary school. Stark said Cabot aims to work with school districts just as the company would a private land owner. “Our take is we want to treat them all equally and with the same effort, whether it’s an individual resident or a school dis-

Suzanne St. Pierre of Auburn Township, Susquehanna County, says drilling money has held down property taxes. Jim Zick, owner of Zickview Farms in Kingsley, Susquehanna County, and president of the Mountain View School Board, talks about gas drilling operations at the Zick gas well adjacent to his property. He says the money drillers pay to school districts for use of their land enables the districts to help make up for state funding losses and make necessary purchases.

the northwest part of the county, also agreed to a natural gas lease with Chesapeake. School districts in northern Luzerne County, where natural gas companies are looking to construct pipelines but not well pads, have not agreed to any leasing terms yet. But that doesn’t mean officials haven’t considered the possibility.

Those conversations ended when

risk.” Township zoning hearings have been ongoing since February for Chief Gathering LLC’s application to build a natural gas metering station about 1,300 feet away from the Dallas schools. Hundreds of parents and residents attended the first meeting in February, when the company had planned to build a compressor station at its proposed location. Since then, the company has agreed to relocate its compressor station and remove more controversial aspects of its metering station, including an 8,000-gallon mercaptan tank and a 100-foot communications tower. No township in Susquehanna County has zoning laws, according to county planner Bob Templeton, but Dallas Township does. Officials are currently working with two gas companies, which plan to construct 30-plus mile gathering lines from wells in Susquehanna County to connect to the Transco interstate pipeline that runs underground near the Dallas schools, in deciding how zoning laws apply to natural gas facilities, including pipelines.

“Maybe we’re not even in a good spot for that,” Palfey said. “I don’t know if it’s something we would actively seek, but you never want to rule anything out.” Metering stations The district, which owns about 100 acres near Route 309, is currently the subject of concern for residents and parents as two natural gas companies are working to build metering stations within 1,800 feet of the four schools. Unlike districts benefiting from drilling, neither the school district nor the township stands to gain any significant income from the metering stations or pipelines.

Boatbuilding in Philly helps to steer youths in the right direction By ALIA CONLEY

HILADELPHIA — Boatbuilder Brett Hart needed a letter written by one of his young workers for a YOUTHadelphia grant. He chose Jeliel Bess, a quiet young man who has worked in the Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory for a year. Usually, Bess doesn’t say much as he sands and helps construct the large wooden boat flipped upside down in the middle of the shop. On a cold day in February, Bess sat in the corner of the workroom to write. Two hours later, he returned with two pages filled with scrawled handwriting and black scratches over his mistakes.

Members of the Boat, Build and Sail team work in the shop at the Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory in Philadelphia.

“This place give you so much more to offer than just building boats,” he wrote. “Even though I learned new carpentry skills, I still learned other things, like motivation to do good at anything, because each day I feel more better about myself.” After executive director Hart finished reading the letter, he had to wipe tears away. “He never gave us much in terms of a verbal response to what his experience is here,” said Hart, 35. “We know he likes it because he shows up all the time. That’s what we get. It was astounding to see really what it meant to him.” Boat, Build and Sail is a free, after-school, 13week program each semester in which groups

of 10 to 12 construct a wooden boat. Youths 12 to 18 go to the factory in Frankford to learn carpentry, use professional tools, and work together to build nautical vessels. But, as Bess wrote, the youths also learn lifelong lessons at the sawdust-filled shop on Worth Street. Though the factory is fairly new to the Frankford area, Hart wants it to invest in long-term relationships with youths and be a place where they seek refuge. The factory receives grants and donations from corporate sponsors, individuals, and other private funders. In June, YOUTHadelphia, See BOAT, Page 5B

August. She lives in Clarks Summit. How did you get involved in professional sports? “Out of college, I was in radio and then television, selling advertising. I’m not a person who dreamed of being in sports, but rather a person who sports found. I got a call from the Minnesota Timberwolves, the NBA team, and they were creating a position that the HR director, whom I knew, thought would be a great fit. I sat down and met with the people there, and thought, ‘This could be fun for a couple of years.’ And that was a long time ago.” What did you do there? “I started out in premium seating

and oversaw the suite sales and marketing area. And I did a lot of different things over the course of time. It was one of those situations where when I got into it, one thing led to another and it just continued to evolve, and here we are some 20 odd years later. It’s been a great ride and no two days have been alike.” How did you end up with the Yankees? “I was with the Timberwolves for 14 years and, after that, I cofounded a company called Executive League Group. I got a call from a recruiter that the Yankees were doing a national search for a president, and for me, the opportunity to be a part of Mandalay Baseball and the New York Yankees was a no-brainer.

So here I am.” What do you enjoy most about your work? “Throughout my career, it’s all about relationships. It’s relationships with our staff, with our fans, with our sponsors, with our season ticket-holders ... it’s great to meet so many different people and be a part of what is a fun part of their day.” Do you get to know any of the players? “Somewhat.

rom time to time I receive a query from a genealogist about some mysterious-sounding organization to which an ancestor belonged. The problem is that many of these once-popular groups have faded into history and now are just puzzling names we come across in old obituaries. Take the Knights of the Mystic Chain. An ancestor of yours who joined this so-called “secret society” with its elaborate rituals might have left behind medallions or other artifacts. According to various sources, it was founded in Reading, Pa. shortly after the Civil War and spread throughout Pennsylvania. By the turn of the 20th century there were six lodges in Wilkes-Barre alone. But like many other clubs, it died out during the 1930s Great Depression, when even dues money could be hard to come by. Other groups emphasized not ritual but down-to-earth political and social goals. At one time the Junior Order of United American Mechanics had a strong presence in Wyoming Valley and elsewhere. Founded in the mid-1800s when “mechanic” referred to anyone in a skilled trade, the group campaigned for limits on immigration and for the protection of American workers. It still exists, largely in the Philadelphia area. Women had their clubs, too. One now-defunct national organization was the Hancock Circle, the women’s division of the GAR, the veterans group founded after the Civil War. These two groups have been subsumed in the modern-day Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, which has a local chapter. How do you study up on a nowunfamiliar organization when you find a reference to it while you’re doing your genealogy? There are any number of encyclopedic guides to American clubs and societies on the reference shelves at the larger public libraries. You can also search online by putting in the name of the specific group you’ve discovered. To see what kind of local presence they had, consult old copies of the Wilkes-Barre City Directory. Historical Question: An unsigned email asks about the Heights section of Wilkes-Barre in the pre-redevelopment years. “I was wondering if you remember there being a theatre on the top of Market Street next to a post office? I can remember my aunt taking me there to see cowboy serials as a very small child. My brothers and sisters think I have a faulty memory. Can you settle this debate?” Yes, “unsigned,” the ironically named Palace Theatre, with just 223 seats and a storefront-type entrance stood at 316 East Market St. for many years. It was closed by the 1960s. Like the other neighborhood movie houses of its day, the Palace showed films that had finished their runs in the larger downtown theatres or that never played there in the first place. It was nicknamed (for reasons I’ve never learned) “The Gick,” and I sometimes heard it called – like some other theatres – “The Bucket of Blood.” There was a post office branch nearby. Likewise, the other store names you mentioned – including a store owned by my own parents – existed there in the first half of the 20th century. I hope you made a sizeable bet with your relatives, because you win. For more on old movie theatres, check out www.cinematreasures.org.

the youth advisory committee of the Philadelphia Foundation Fund for Children, awarded $10,000 to the factory, thanks in part to Bess. In the summer, for three twoweek sessions, 24 youths with various skill levels — some from previous programs, others new to boatbuilding — work in the shop and plan to set sail on the Delaware River and camp at their destinations. While in the program, students take sailing lessons, and eventually they sail on day trips in the boats they built. The summer camp’s hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., but youths come early and stay late. One day after returning from the Independence Seaport Museum at 3 p.m., most of the youths stuck around. “All the kids came back totally jazzed to do more stuff,� said program director Leonard Bonarek, 36. “I sat here and just watched. I could hear the sounds of tools going in the shop.� The organization started in

Hart, who grew up in Frankford, said he wants to provide sailing trips and other maritime programs for the neighborhood while focusing on helping youths engage in a positive, educational environment.

Youngsters can come for one or all of the summer sessions or semester programs. The factory obtains permission from parents and youths to see school report cards. To promote learning, youths are asked to research a maritime subject to present to the group at the end of the summer session, a component called Teach Your Favorite Subject. In the fall, Hart hopes to create a blog where students can write about their experiences. Bess is an example of the factory’s camaraderie. He graduated from El Centro de Estudiantes in June, but was denied admission to the Williamson Free School of Mechanical Trades because of literacy requirements. Hart offered Bess a yearlong apprenticeship — taking him beyond the usual graduation age of 18 — while he takes classes at Community College of Philadelphia. Bess will apply to Williamson again for the fall of 2012.

SECTION 5 JUNIOR SOFTBALL

GWA rallies to take section title Six-run seventh sends team to states By ZACH DOLEIDEN For The Times Leader

PLAINS TWP. – Trailing 5-4 to begin the seventh inning of Saturday’s Little League Section 5 junior softball championships, Greater Wyoming Area needed to bear down and stay calm at the plate if it had any hope of defeating Carbino Club. After Drew Bednarski popped out to Carbino third baseman Jess Regan for the first out, something clicked for

Greater Wyoming Area and the offense came to life for a 10-7 victory. GWA advances to the state tournament at Indiana Little League and will open play at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday against the Section 7 champion. Megan Bresnahan got the rally started with a single to shallow center field before advancing to second base on a wild pitch by Carbino’s Morgan Caselli. After working a 2-2 count at the plate, Lindsay Ca-

rey dumped an RBI single into center field to score Bresnahan with the tying run. Following two walks to load the bases for GWA, Adrienne Przybyla stroked a big threerun double that hit off the fence in right-center field. Emily Wolfgang and Sara Coolbaugh then batted in two insurance runs to give Greater Wyoming Area a 10-5 advantage that they would not relinquish. See GWA, Page 5C

NFL LOCKOUT

NFL says new deal will bring creativity

The league will find solutions to make up for lost time if players approve agreement. By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

NEW YORK — As lawyers for NFL players and owners spend the weekend trying to put the lockout to rest, many fans wonder when pro football will return. And when it does, just how ragged will the preseason look? So ragged that the league and its 32 teams are considering ways to placate fans once a labor “It would agreement is be smart of completed.

There’s no opportunity to use the stadium for any other thing.” The players have yet to schedule a vote on an owner-approved proposal that would put the league back in business.

Wyoming Area’s Nick O’Brien, right, runs up the middle against a Pittston Area defender. Wyoming Area’s classifications in a few sports could change with West Side Career and Technology Center dropping all sports.

Decision could result in change

Other schools could be affected if West Side CTC eliminates sports. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

Tough economic times could lead to tougher sports schedules for some local public school students. Tuesday’s cost-cutting move to eliminate sports at West Side Career and Technology Center could mean several sports programs in four member districts get

bumped up a notch in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association’s complex classification system. The PIAA classifications – A, 2A, 3A and 4A – are designed to assure similar sized schools play each other. The classifications are determined by enrollment in grades nine through 11 – male enrolment for boys sports and female enrolment for girls.

CHIEFS

MOOSIC – Hot weather appeared to be a remedy for a cold Greg Smith Saturday night at PNC Field. The slumping Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starter entered his start with an ERA of 9.00 in his last four outings. With a game-time temperature of 90 degrees when Smith took the hill, he was as hot as the weather all night. The left-hander lasted six innings for the first time since July 3 and only allowed four hits and two runs as the Yankees defeated Syracuse 5-2 in front of 8,421 fans. The 27-year-old, who was signed from an independent league in June, picked up his See YANKS, Page 5C

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s Greg Smith delivers a pitch against Syracuse at PNC Field in Moosic on Saturday night.

T

he thermometer read 94 degrees when the game began a few minutes past 7 p.m. Friday. And that almost seemed cool by the seventh inning, the way the humidity was rising at PNC Field. Throughout the stands, little boys began furrowing brows beaded with perspiration. Girls shifted around with each passing pitch, trying desperately to find a position in their seats that seemed a little less uncomfortable. Adults and kids alike tried to turn anything they could find – game programs, hats, pocketbooks – into makeshift fans. Down on the field, it seemed players weren’t even paying attention to the oppressive atmosphere. They looked to be an environment of their own as they ran down fly balls, charged around the bases at full speed and never broke stride while snagging ground balls. It’s a wonder some of them didn’t drop to the ground. Their secret is simple. “Make sure you drink enough water,” Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees outfielder Greg Golson said. “You try to go to the water jug as often as possible.” Or go to the shady area that runs from the dugout to the dressing room. “You’ll see a lot more guys go down into the tunnel, for sure,” said Yankees outfielder Austin Krum, speaking of the area that runs under the stands between the dugout and the team’s dressing room. “Guys will go down and just cool off.” And if that doesn’t do the trick, players say wrapping ice-cold towels around their necks between innings is a good way to prevent becoming overheated. It’s a wonder Jesus Montero doesn’t put ice cubes in his chest protector. He’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s main catcher, meaning Montero has to spend nine innings in brutal heat and humidity wearing a mask and shin guards and squatting behind the plate. “It’s fine,” Montero said. His sopping wet uniform suggests otherwise. “Sweat? Yeah, sure,” Montero said. “I try to stay strong.” Even the strongest sometimes can’t stand up to strength-sapping heat. Oppressive heat knows no mercy Phillies ace pitcher Roy Halladay, a well-conditioned workout fiend, found himself getting sick in such heat and had to be removed from a game last week. The SWB Yankees can understand what he went through. Some of them were taken aback by the sky-rocketing temperatures that greeted them recently in Columbus. “During batting practice, we were all kind of taken aback by how hot and humid it was,” Krum said. “That first one (hot day of the season) can change your thinking.” It can change your energy level, too. “Yeah, sometimes if it’s a little too hot and you don’t drink enough water, it definitely slows you down a little bit,” Golson said. And you thought the players really were playing it cool. “These baseball games are three hours long,” Krum said. “You do start getting fatigued and feeling dehydrated. “There’s no way you can beat the heat.” Actually, there is. Having the resolve to play through it. “That’s really where the mental part of this game is so powerful,” Krum said. “If you can overcome what your body is telling you, you can beat the heat mentally.” It’s the only way to keep going fullspeed through conditions that make everyone else want to stop.

Editor’s Note: The Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees have taken a page from their parent club by winning championships. SWB has racked up four consecutive International League North Division titles and more could be on the way because the minor league system is stacked with top prospects that are close to contributing at the Triple-A or Major League level. Here’s a look at the organization’s top 10 prospects according to MLB.com, where they are now and how they are faring:

Russ Canzler: The Hazleton Area grad, who is an outfielder for Durham, the Triple-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, has been playing exceptionally well.

Florida Marlins’ Scott Cousins, top, collides with San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey (28) on a fly ball from Emilio Bonifacio during the 12th inning of a baseball game in San Francisco on May 25.

Fearing a collision course By JOSH HORTON For The Times Leader

Fearless, hard nosed and toughness are all adjectives that are commonly used to describe catchers. However, regardless of what people think, they do have fears. Pretty big fears, too. The catcher’s biggest fear is when the opposing team has runners in scoring position and their hitter hits it to right field. The reason is while watching the throw from right field, they give up their vision of the base runner leaving them vulnerable to get run over at the plate. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre catcher P.J. Pilittere has experienced just how dangerous fielding a throw to the plate from right field can be. He missed a month of his 2006 season after injuring his shoulder on a collision at the plate. “I hung in there and moved up the line and the guy hit me from behind. I was out for a while,” Pilittere said. “That was my fault. We were losing by four in the first and I was just trying to get an out and tried to make the play instead of just being smart and coming up and cutting it off and maybe redirect it to another base. “You have to put your pride aside.” After the injury, Pilittere decided to take a much safer approach to fielding a throw from the right fielder. “You have to position yourself accordingly,” Pilittere said. “When a throw comes in from right, I like to hang out behind the plate so I can read the throw, get on a peak and get some momentum going and make a tag.” Collisions at the plate can be serious. Earlier in the season, San Francisco superstar catcher Buster Posey broke his leg after being run over by Scott Cousins of the Florida Marlins. Posey will miss the rest of the 2011 season. Cousins was tagging from third base on a fly ball to right field, the exact play Pilittere fears most. The play hit home for Pilittere and it was a hot topic in the Scranton/WilkesBarre clubhouse. “The thing of it was, that in our opinion he was in front of the plate. Talking to a lot of the guys as a base runner there you know it’s a close game and it’s a routine fly ball and as a base runner, you know if you’re taking him out as soon as you leave from third,” Pilittere said. “It’s not like he decided five feet before he got there that he was going to take him out. He had his mind made up

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey (28) is carried off the field after a collision with Florida Marlins’ Scott Cousins during the 12th inning of a baseball game in San Francisco on May 25.

“If a guy is going to take you out at the plate it is usually a last ditch effort. If he has any chance of being safe he is usually sliding.” P.J. Pilittere Scranton/Wilkes-Barre catcher

and that’s usually how it goes.” The most common occurrences of catchers being run over at the plate are when a base runner knows for sure he is going to be out. “You never really see a guy get taken out on a bang-bang play, Pilittere said. “If a guy is going to take you out at the plate it is usually a last ditch effort. If he has any chance of being safe he is usually sliding.” Pilittere is not the only catcher who fears the throw from right field. Gustavo Molina has caught many games in his career and he was quick to mention how difficult the throw from right can be. “One time I got hit hard after taking a throw from right. I felt dizzy and needed a few minutes to get back into the game. I never came out of the game,” Molina said with a smile. “That’s why you got all the gear on. A lot of catchers

tape their ribs because you got a lot of contact at the plate.” There are many unwritten rules in the game of baseball and among them is, if you are a catcher, don’t run over a fellow catcher. “I have never run anybody over,” Pilittere said. “I think it is a common understanding between catchers because we know it hurts.” Taking out the catcher at the plate has been allowed since baseballs inception. After the Posey collision many argued Major League Baseball should alter its rules, but Pilittere feels it is part of the game. “The tough thing to wrap your head around is whether a catcher has gear on or how big we are, a guy coming in full speed at you is going to hurt,” he said. “It’s part of the game and I don’t think it’s going to change.”

On This Date The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre franchise record for home runs in a season is held by Shelley Duncan when he shattered his own record in 2009. On July 25 of that year, Duncan hit a pair of homers in a loss at Toledo. The two bombs were his 24th and 25th of that season, which at the time tied his own season record of most home runs in a season. Duncan hit five more after that day and finished the 2009 campaign with a franchiserecord 30 home runs.

“Before this last inning, I told the girls to just go out and do what you’ve been doing throughout the tournament,” GWA head coach Robert Bresnahan said. “Just stay relaxed and the game will come to you.” GWA was the first to score on Bree Bednarski’s two-out RBI double in the top of the third inning. Nicole Turner then lined an RBI triple over the outstretched glove of Carbino’s Paige Durkin. Przybyla added another run with an RBI double to deep center field to give GWA an early 3-0 lead. However, Carbino would not go down without a fight, scoring five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning on two-run doubles by Kelly Mecca and Clare Sebastianelli. Caselli added an RBI single to complete the offensive barrage and give Carbino a 5-3 advantage. GWA crawled back to within one run and set the stage for its seventh inning comeback victory when Turner scored from third on a safety squeeze by Lauren Maloney in the sixth inning.

first victory since June 23. All three of his wins this season have come at PNC Field. After allowing a pair of solo home runs in the third inning to Steve Lombardozzi and Chris Marrero that gave Syracuse a 2-0 lead, Smith (3-2) didn’t give up anything else as he lasted six innings, retired the final 10 batters he faced and tied his season-high with seven strikeouts. The Yankees came right back in the bottom of the third to even the score at 2-2. Greg Golson tripled to score Doug Bernier (2for-3, 2 runs scored) to cut the lead to 2-1. Golson (1-for-3, 2 runs) then scored on a Jesus Montero groundout to tie the score. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got to Syracuse left-hander Tom Milone again in the bottom of the fifth and knocked Syracuse’s ace out of

the seventh, Carbino began to stage a late rally by scoring two runs on an RBI single by Sebastianelli and an RBI groundout by Caselli to make the score 10-7. However, the rally fell short as Durkin grounded out to Turner at shortstop to end the game. “They are a good hitting team and there’s nothing you can do about that,” Carbino head coach Kim Mecca said. “With the basesloaded and a 3-2 count, we had to throw one in there to Przybyla and she hit the fence. “I wish them luck and hope they go far.” Nicole Cumbo was dominant early on for GWA, which allowed it to get out to an early lead and kept the team in the game. In her complete game effort, Cumbo recorded three strikeouts and walked three. “Nicole threw a very smart game,” Bresnahan said. “She made no mistakes on the mound and that’s what it takes to beat a very good Carbino Club team.” Pacing GWA offensively were Przybyla, who finished 2-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI, and Turner, who went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple while recording one RBI. For Carbino, Sebastianelli was 2-for-4 at the plate with a double GWA’s Jordan Kelly bunts in the fifth inning to get on base and three RBI. against Carbino Club on Saturday. the game as he lasted just 41⁄3 innings. In the frame, SWB scored three runs with the big hit being a tworun double down the left field line by catcher Jesus Montero that scored Bernier and Kevin Russo (2-for-4). The third run of the inning came across on an RBI fielder’s choice by Jordan Parraz. Milone (8-6), who started his third game against the Yankees this season, was tagged for five runs in his outing. His record against SWB dropped to 1-2. He entered Saturday’s start giving up just four earned runs in 12 innings. Yankees reliever Buddy Carlyle threw 11⁄3 scoreless innings, lefty Randy Flores pitched 2⁄3 of an inning and closer Kevin Whelan finished the game with a one-twothree ninth for his International League-leading 19th save.

Douglas leads East past West

Continued from Page 1C

The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — There were the record number of first-time WNBA All-Stars, and a halftime ceremony honoring the best players in WNBA history. Indiana Fever guard Katie Douglas didn’t fit into either category. So she made her mark another way. The four-time All-Star capped one of the closest WNBA midseason showcases ever by hitting the go-ahead 3-pointer with 56.7 seconds left, and the Eastern Conference hung on for just its third All-Star game victory over the West 118-113 on Saturday. “We got together during practice and the first thing we said was that we wanted to win,” said New York Liberty guard Cappie Pondexter, who led the East with 17 points. “Alongside of having fun we wanted to be victorious today and we accomplished that. Good job.” At halftime, Pondexter was also named one of the WNBA’s Top 15 players of all-time, in celebration of this league’s 15th season. Douglas finished with 15 points and helped the East win just its third All-Star game in 10 tries — but also third in the last four. Connecticut Sun center Tina Charles scored 15, and headlined a record group of 10 players who made their All-Star debuts in this year’s game. Swin Cash led the West with 21 points and 12 rebounds and was named MVP for the second time. Former WNBA star Lisa Leslie is the only other player with multiple All-Star MVP awards. Cash, the Seattle Storm’s fourtime All-Star, was also named MVP in 2009. She is also the league’s first All-Star MVP from the losing team. “I think so many players played well. It could’ve been anyone,” Cash said. The four-time All-Star singled out Rebekkah Brunson, who had 20 points and nine rebounds for the West. Brunson started in place of Los Angeles Sparks center Candace Parker, who is out due to a knee injury and still has yet to play in an All-Star game despite ranking among the WNBA’s elite players since her 2008 rookie year. Parker’s next chance may not come until 2013. Next summer is the Olympics, and the league may cancel the game — as it did in 2008 — while its biggest names play for the U.S. national team. “We’re thrilled that it’s an Olympic year, and we’ll obviously build our schedule to accommodate that,” WNBA president Laurel Richie said before the game. Neither side led by more than five points. The West’s last chance came down to San Antonio’s Becky Hammon scrambling to shoot a 3-pointer, but she instead found herself without an open shot and nowhere to pass. Her desperate bid to escape a trap ended with her whistled for traveling with 3.5 seconds left. “I think about midway through the fourth quarter both teams decided they wanted to win,” Hammon said. “We just came up a little bit short today.” It was a disappointing end in an otherwise humbling day for Hammon, who was among the 15 current and former WNBA players named as the league’s best ever.

New overall leader Cadel Evans of Australia celebrates on the podium during the 20th stage of the Tour de France cycling race in Grenoble, Alps region, France, Saturday.

Evans on the verge of win The 34-year-old Aussie leads Andy Schleck by 1:34 entering today’s final stage.

By JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press

GRENOBLE, France — Cadel Evans seized the Tour de France yellow jersey in the next-to-last stage Saturday, all but giving Australia its first victory in cycling’s showpiece event and capping one of the most dramatic races in years. The two-time runner-up took the overall lead by overcoming a 57-second deficit to Andy Schleck of Luxembourg in the time trial. A red-eyed Evans choked up on the victory podium, holding back tears before hurling the winner’s bouquet into the crowd. “I really can’t quite believe it right now,” the 34-year-old Aussie said. “I have been concentrating on one event for so long.” Although there is one more stage — today’s ceremonial finish along the Champs-Elysees in Paris — the leader after the time trial is almost certain to be the winner. Launching a successful attack during that flat ride is virtually impossible. This year’s edition of the 108year-old race was tense all the way — a riveting finish and without a serious doping blight that marred past Tours. The Schleck brothers, knowing they had lost, embraced after the finish line of the 26-mile time trial. Evans leads Andy Schleck by 1:34, and Frank Schleck by 2:30. The 20th stage was won by Tony Martin of Germany. Evans finished second in the stage — seven seconds behind — and was 2:31 faster than Andy Schleck.

The riders set off in reverse order of the standings. Andy Schleck had the benefit of riding last, and said beforehand he’d have the added inspiration of wearing yellow. Riders described the course — mostly flat featuring two small hills — as quite technical, with a variety of tight turns. After morning rains doused the roads, sunshine dried them by the time the leading contenders left. By the first intermediate time check at the 9.3-mile mark, Evans had already erased 36 seconds of his deficit to Andy Schleck and was 34 seconds faster than the elder Schleck. At the second, at 17.1 miles, Andy Schleck’s lead had vanished — Evans was 1:32 faster. The Luxembourg rider wasn’t even among the 10 fastest riders who had crossed that point. Evans then kept gaining as the stage progressed to the finish. The looming victory for Evans, the BMC team leader, culminated a stellar and methodical three weeks of riding. Unlike defending champion Alberto Contador and other main contenders, Evans was spared crashes. His only real problem was mechanical trouble Friday, but he recovered without any lost time. Evans said he first saw the Tour as a 14-year-old, watching the successes of five-time champion Miguel Indurain. The Aussie spoke movingly of former coach Aldo Sassi, who “often believed in me more than I did.” The Italian died in December. “For him today to see me now would be quite something,” Evans said. Evans won only one stage in this Tour, the flat fourth stage. But his triumph attests to his diligent preparation as he eyed a ti-

tle he has narrowly missed for years. “Today, we went through the process, like we had the plan every day — and the plan every day was A, B, C, D,” he said. “The key aspect to our Tour is consistency.” BMC also averted the many crashes that wreaked havoc on many teams, especially during the first week. “We were criticized a lot in the first 10 days for not going forward enough,” said John Lelangue, BMC’s sporting director. “But that’s the strategy, to consider every stage of the Tour de France like it was the last.” Evans’ psychological toughness had been questioned, but he showed a veteran’s skill and savvy to take cycling’s greatest prize. “This is the victory of a complete rider,” Tour director Christian Prudhomme said. “Is the consecration of a career.” Evans had been regarded as a perennial underachiever until he became a world champion two years ago. And he enjoyed a solid build-up to the Tour, racing less than usual so he would peak at the right moment. This wasn’t Evans’ first comefrom-behind attempt. In another next-to-last stage time trial in 2008, he trailed Carlos Sastre of Spain by 1:34. Evans erased 29 seconds and finished second overall. The previous year, he was only 23 seconds behind Contador in second place. Those were doping-marred races. Leader Michael Rasmussen of Denmark was kicked out of the 2007 Tour for lying about his training whereabouts when he missed prerace doping tests. The next year, third-place finisher Bernard Kohl of Germany was among several riders exposed as cheats.

ing all sports, the ranges for each classification vary from sport to sport, so teams in one school can be in different classifications – for example, the same school could be 2A in wrestling and 3A in football. West Side students come primarily from five districts, and as long as the center has at least one sports team, those students don’t count toward the sending district’s PIAA enrollment numbers. Cut all West Side sports and, as far as PIAA is concerned, those students are added to enrollment figures of their sending districts. For districts already near the upper limit of their current enrollment classification, the addition of even a handful of students can push them into the next level, forcing them to compete against a new list of larger schools. The exact consequences can’t be known until all numbers are final this fall. And PIAA is in the middle of a two-year cycle regarding classifications, so no changes will be implemented this school year regardless of the numbers; the impact would hit in the 201213 school year. But a look at enrolment from 2010-11 shows the likely impact: If Career Center students had been included in their home district enrolments last year, six teams in four districts would have been bumped up one classification. At Lake-Lehman School District, the baseball and girls basketball teams would move from 2A to 3A. At Wyoming Area, the cross country and football teams would move from 2A to 3A. Dallas wrestling would move from 2A to 3A and Northwest girl basketball would move from A to 2A. These changes would happen even though none of those schools send many students to West Side. The sending districts are already near their classification ceilings, and a few students from West Side are enough to tip the scale. Consider Lake-Lehman baseball. Last year’s male enrollment in grades 9-11 at the high school

supposed to be the day team facilities opened. Those facilities won’t open before the NFLPA’s executive committee approves the agreement. Exhibition games rarely feature star players for more than cameo appearances. Now, with no offseason training at team facilities, no minicamps and perhaps delayed camp openings, the big names could be on the bench until ... September. That would make many preseason games more like scrimmages, although they would provide increased opportunities for rookies and fringe players. The Bradys and Polamalus and Urlachers of the league might not see the field until the fourth and final exhibition, games the regulars usually skip. “It would be smart of the league and the players to do something special for the fans for the first preseason game or two, at least one serving each team’s home fans,” said Marc Ganis, president of Chicago-based sports business consulting firm Sportscorp Ltd. “That could be free or discounted concessions or merchandise, free parking, photo and autograph opportunities with players — especially those who will not be dressing for the game — and other fan friendly marketing and interaction.” There’s also enhanced concern

was 270, while another 14 boys from the district were enrolled at West Side. The PIAA enrolment range for 2A classification is 154 to 274. As long as those 14 students at West Side didn’t count, Lake-Lehman stayed in the 2A range. Add West Side boys to high school enrolment, and LakeLehman baseball climbs to the 3A range: 275 to 471. In a bit of irony, Wyoming Valley West, which had 326 students at West Side last year and thus would see their PIAA enrolment numbers jump the most, is immune to classification changes. All of the teams fielded by the Spartans are already 4A, the classification with the highest enrollments. Another bit of irony: While PIAA’s two-year cycle assures that no changes will occur in the districts until next year, it also means West Side can’t get back into the system before then, even if the center decides to bring sports back – something the Joint Operating Committee that runs the center said it will consider as early as February. Any teams fielded by West Side would be unable to join a PIAA conference until the next two year cycle begins, thus limiting them to exhibition schedules.There’s one other quirk in the PIAA rules that could impact the already-complicated equations: “Cooperative sponsorship.” In an effort to give more West Side students a chance to play a given sport, one of the member districts could set up such a sponsorship in that sport, but all West Side students would only be eligible to play that sport with that district. PIAA District 2 Chairman Frank Majikes explained two key components of such sponsorship with a hypothetical: Wyoming Area setting up a baseball cooperative with West Side. Under PIAA rules, that would mean all West Side students who want to play baseball would have to do so with Wyoming Area, regardless of which district they are from. It would also mean half of West Side’s male enrolment would count towards Wyoming Area’s PIAA enrolment figures, again regardless of what district those students were from. Majikes said no cooperative sponsorships currently exist at West Side. about injuries. Few players are likely to be close to football shape when they report — whenever that is. “The lack of offseason will seriously affect those that have not prepared on their own or at a facility,” said Brian Martin, CEO of TEST Sports Clubs in Florida and New Jersey, places where dozens of NFL players train. “Based on working with over 60 active NFL guys, I believe it is roughly 50-50 with those that are workers and those who are not. Many rely on natural gifts and they will be affected with the lack of mandatory conditioning.” Trainers and coaching staffs, therefore, will have to keep a sharp eye on which players were diligent about working out during the lockout and which ones were not. If any top players arrive out of shape, pushing them to get ready in such short time — the first full weekend of preseason games is less than three weeks away — would be problematic. “The most common injuries will be pulled muscles, hamstrings and groins primarily, due to lack of preparation,” Martin said. “Players need to lengthen and strengthen muscles in the offseason to be ready for the rigors of the NFL.” The concerns about physical health are mirrored by concerns of financial health. The deeper the lockout goes, the more costly it will become for both sides — serious financial losses that will shrink the overall revenue pie.

Steelers’ Roethlisberger weds in private ceremony The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger got the privacy he wanted for his wedding Saturday, with police providing tight security around the church in affluent Ohio Township where he and Ashley Harlan were married and tinted windows on expensive cars leaving much of the guest list a mystery. Still, the hope of a glimpse at

the Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback, his new bride and the dozens of team luminaries who turned out for the ceremony was enough for Dolly Metz to sit in a car — complete with Steelers covers on the headrests — in a nearby parking lot with the windows down in 90 degree heat. “This is the best part of my day,” said Metz, who lives in McKees Rocks. “I know he was

supposed to send a limo for me too, but it broke down.” Metz and friends Eugene and Carol Lovely were among a small group of Steeler fans who tried to show their support for Roethlisberger. The organization was well-represented too despite the NFL’s ongoing labor dispute. Owner Dan Rooney waved to security officials on his way in-

side and guests included linebacker James Harrison and former Pittsburgh running back Jerome Bettis. Harrison entered in a rare Mercedes sedan, according to police, his presence perhaps proof there was no fallout from his criticism of the quarterback in a “Men’s AP PHOTO Journal” article released last week. The Zierenberg family waits for Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and his new wife to pass by after their wedding.

Santana might start rehabbing in minors The Associated Press

MIAMI — Johan Santana says he might begin a minor-league rehabilitation assignment next week, which would be a big step in his comeback from shoulder surgery last September. The New York Mets ace threw batting practice to hitters for the third time Friday at the team complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla. He’s scheduled to throw a bullpen session today at the Florida Marlins’ stadium before the Mets’ game there, and if that workout goes well, he’ll likely be headed to the minors. Santana hopes to pitch for the Mets this season, but he said there’s no timetable for his return to the majors. The lefthander said he’s still building up strength in his shoulder. Last season Santana went 11-9 with a 2.98 ERA in 29 starts for New York before being sidelined. Baltimore Orioles BALTIMORE — Orioles left fielder Luke Scott will miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury that severely limited his effectiveness at the plate. Scott has a torn labrum in his right arm. He was removed from the 15-day disabled list Friday, but didn’t get through an entire game against the Los Angeles Angels before realizing he could not hit as he did before the injury. Scott hit .284 with 27 homers and 72 RBIs last year. This season, he’s batting .220 with nine homers and 22 RBIs. He told reporters Saturday, “I battled through it the best I could, but I’m not helping the team.” Baltimore placed Scott on the 15-day disabled list Saturday and recalled third baseman Josh Bell from Triple-A Norfolk. Florida Marlins MIAMI — Florida Marlins right-hander Chris Volstad has been optioned to Triple-A New Orleans in the wake of his latest rocky outing. Volstad lasted only five innings and gave up four runs, three earned, against the New York Mets on Friday. That lifted his ERA to 5.58, third-highest in the major leagues. Volstad 5-8 in 20 starts. Manager Jack McKeon said he anticipated Volstad would rejoin the rotation later this season. Cincinnati Reds CINCINNATI — Reds rookie shortstop Zach Cozart hurt his left elbow while trying to make a tag in the fourth inning, forcing him from the game Saturday. Atlanta pitcher Derek Lowe bunted with Nate McLouth on first base and no outs. First baseman Joey Votto fielded and threw to second, where Cozart tried to catch the ball and tag the sliding McLouth simultaneously. Cozart’s left elbow appeared to over-extend from the impact. He fell to the ground and immediately grabbed the elbow. He covered his face with his right hand while a trainer examined it, then walked off the field protecting the arm. Edgar Renteria took his place. Pittsburgh Pirates PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Pirates rookie outfielder and leadoff hitter Alex Presley was scratched from the lineup for Saturday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals due to a left thumb contusion. Presley, who is hitting .333 and has hit safely in 15 of his 20 games, said he jammed the thumb in Friday night’s loss to St. Louis and is having trouble swinging. Presley said x-rays were not scheduled to be taken. Third baseman Chase d’Arnaud replaced Presley in the lineup, creating a domino effect of three other players switching positions.

By JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Bert Blyleven knows what took him to where he’s been and where he’s headed — his heritage. “I’m Dutch, I’m stubborn. I think it’s the stubbornness, the consistency. You take the good with the bad,” said the 60-yearold Blyleven, the first player born in the Netherlands to earn Major League Baseball’s highest honor, election to the Baseball Hall of Fame. “I came up at a young age. I retired at an old age. I was one of only three pitchers to win a game before their 20th (birthday) and after their 40th. It’s just loving a game that you felt that you could compete at the highest level.” Blyleven, who won 287 games in a 22-year major league career, will be inducted today with infielder Roberto Alomar and front-office guru Pat Gillick. “I’m going to be in awe,” Blyleven said. “We all have dreams as kids. You don’t know where it’s going to head.” Though he lost 250 games, Blyleven threw 60 shutouts (ninth all time) and logged 242 complete games, finishing his career in 1992 with 3,701 strikeouts (fifth all time). He also made 685 starts (11th all time), pitched 4,9691⁄3 innings (14th all time), and was 3-0 in League Championship Series play and 2-1 in World Series games. His sojourn was longer than most. Born in 1951 in Zeist, Netherlands, his parents, Joe and Jenny, moved the family to Canada two years later. “My dad’s eventual goal was get to the United States, but it was hard back in the early 1950s,” Blyleven said. “The Canadian government was looking

years before moving to Southern California, where Blyleven’s uncle had settled. The Blylevens lived in the Los Angeles suburb of Paramount, then moved to Garden Grove when he was in third grade. “The friends that I started hanging out with played Little League. I didn’t know what it was,” Blyleven recalled. “I started out as a catcher at about 10 years old. My manager I guess realized that I was throwing the ball back harder to the pitcher than he was throwing to me, so he said, ‘Would you like to pitch?’ And I said, ‘Sure.’ So I tried it and fell in love with it.” It wasn’t long before Joe Blyleven built a pitcher’s mound in the backyard, laying the foundation for his son’s Hall of Fame career. Although he didn’t throw a curveball until he was 14 — “My dad understood that I shouldn’t throw a curve until I was a teenager and he was a big, strong man, so I listened.” — Blyleven mastered the art better than most. And he did it through the art of visualization, watching and listening to broadcaster Vin Scully describe Dodgers star lefthander Sandy Koufax’s drop. “I also learned that everything keys off my fastball,” Blyleven said. “People talk about my curveball, but it was control of my fastball (that made me effective). And I learned that from sitting on a bench with (former Dodger great) Don Drysdale when I was very young — about pitching inside, pitching both sides of the plate and being a bulldog on the mound.” Drafted by Minnesota in the third round of the 1969 amateur draft, Blyleven became youngest pitcher in the majors when the Twins called him up June 2, 1970, after just 21 minor league starts. “Really, when I signed I didn’t

er — Alomar grew up in the presence of big leaguers. And instead of horsing around in the dugout as a kid, he absorbed everything he saw and heard at the ballpark. That paid off when he signed in 1985 with the San Diego Padres as a 17-year-old. Three years later, on April 22, 1988, Alomar made his major league debut memorable when he singled off future Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan in his first at-bat in the majors. Two years later, Alomar was an All-Star for the first time, and that’s when Gillick, general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays, stepped in and made the signature trade of his standout career. Gillick sent Tony Fernandez and Fred McGriff to the Padres in exchange for Alomar and Joe Carter in a blockbuster deal in December 1990. With the switch-hitting Alomar at the top of his game, the Blue Jays reached the ALCS the next season, then won consecutive World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. Alomar spent five seasons in Toronto before finishing his career in stints with the Orioles, Indians, Mets, White Sox and Diamondbacks. Alomar’s failure to become just the fourth second baseman — and 45th player — to be a firstballot Hall of Famer was the result of a one blemish on a remarkable career. A spray of saliva in a September 1996 game in Toronto’s SkyDome tarnished Alomar’s stellar reputation. Called out on a third strike by umpire John Hirschbeck on a pitch that appeared to be outside, the two argued and Alomar was ejected. Before he left the plate, Alomar spit in Hirschbeck’s face and was suspended for five games. Alomar said at the time that he thought Hirschbeck was stressed because his 8year-old son had died in 1993 of a rare brain disease. Alomar worked to repair his image during the latter half of his career, which ended in 2004.

Host Britain gearing up for Olympics Security remains at the forefront of the planning for next year’s summer games. By STEPHEN WILSON AP Sports Writer

LONDON — The London Olympics will open just over a year from now, amid the stunning and historic backdrops of the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace — all the monuments that make this city one of the world’s most popular destinations. For that very reason, these games will have a security presence like no other in the face of a constant terrorist threat. Wednesday marks the one-year countdown to the opening ceremony on July 27, 2012. For years, London has been bracing for the Olympic onslaught: • 10,500 athletes from more than 200 countries; • 5,000 coaches and team officials; • 20,000 media personnel; • hundreds of thousands of visitors. All for an extravaganza in the most memorable of settings, featuring 26 sports in 32 venues. It’s a tall order, even for a place where the flow of tourists never stops. And it’s that much more challenging just seven years after a coordinated, deadly attack on London’s transit system. The message from Mayor Boris Johnson: Don’t worry. Everything is taken care of. “With a year to go we can safely say we are ready to welcome the world,” he said. Venue construction is largely completed, tickets are almost sold out, and the government says the games will come in under the 9.298 billion pound ($15 billion) budget. The Olympic Park is changing the face of a previously rundown area of east London. Athletes will be competing in iconic venues and locations across the capital. Fans will see Usain Bolt sprint-

ing down the track in a new 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium, beach volleyball players dueling on the sand in Horse Guards Parade, triathletes splashing in Hyde Park’s Serpentine, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal stepping back onto Centre Court at Wimbledon, archers firing their arrows at Lord’s cricket ground and showjumpers clearing fences at Greenwich Park. Underpinning the sports festival will be one of the biggest security operations ever mounted. Security at the Olympics has been a critical issue ever since the 1972 Munich massacre, even more so after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. A day after London was awarded the games in 2005, suicide bombers attacked London’s transport network, killing 52 people. The British government is planning for the national terror threat to be “severe” during the Olympics, meaning an attempted attack is highly likely. Security screenings for spectators will be tight and widespread, with airport-style checks at most venues. Away from the competition sites, protecting the Underground subway network and public places will be a major challenge. “We’re already seeing chatter from terror groups regarding the 2012 Games, but none of it seems defined at the moment,” said a British security official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of his work. “This is to be expected, though, with an event of this magnitude.” About 12,000 police officers will be on duty each day of the July 27-Aug.12 games, which have a security budget of 475 million pounds ($770 million). British officials say the country has the experience and knowhow in dealing with terrorism. “I am as sure as you can possibly be one year out from a games that we have done everything that we need to deliver a safe and secure games,” Olympics Minister Hugh Robertson said. Extra surveillance cameras

In just over a year from now, London will be at the center of global attention when it hosts the opening ceremony of what organizers call the "greatest show on earth" the 2012 Olympics.

will also be installed around the Olympic Park — Britain has some of the most extensive surveillance powers in the world and has become a leader in what critics call “Big Brother” techniques with its more than 4.3 million closed-circuit cameras in operation. All Olympics workers will be put through a vigorous screening, including checks for terror

and other criminal offenses. Organizers are determined to keep security from being overwhelming. They point to the successful policing of the royal wedding in April of Prince William and Kate Middleton, when a million people lined the procession route from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace. “We’re very good at policing in a friendly and a discreet way,” or-

ganizing committee leader Sebastian Coe said. “The real challenge is to maintain security to protect the athletes, protect people, protect assets, but at the same time having people leaving your city feeling they haven’t been pushed from pillar to post.” Despite the tight security, London wants these games to be a party. While the Beijing Olympics

were marked by a sterile atmosphere, London promises knowledgeable fans, packed venues, “live sites” with giant screens around the city and a “home” crowd of citizens from different nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. It will all kick off with an opening ceremony created by “Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle. “It won’t be the same as Beijing,” Johnson said. “I’ve always said it would be different. It would be splendid. It would be brilliant. It would be brilliant in an entirely different way. “Wait till you see that opening ceremony. I think you will be weeping tears of joy after that opening ceremony. That’s my confident prediction.” While Athens struggled to the last minute to finish venues for the 2004 Olympics, and Beijing was battered for its record on Tibet and human rights ahead of the 2008 Games, London has enjoyed a comparatively smooth and crisis-free ride so far. On the down side, the British public has complained bitterly about the ticket sales process, and London’s strained public transport system faces tough challenges to keep the city moving smoothly during the games. Coe, a two-time 1,500-meter Olympic gold medalist and former 800-meter record-holder, surveys the year ahead like a runner entering the “midway back straight” on the final lap. “I know from 800s that’s where it’s won and lost,” Coe said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I don’t kid myself. This is a crucial part of the race, and how you come out of that 500 to 600 (meters) often determines how you come across the line.” On Wednesday, London will mark the year-to-go milestone with a televised ceremony from Trafalgar Square, with International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge on hand to formally invite the world’s athletes to the games. Organizers will present the design of the Olympic medals.

SWIMMING

World championships will be a big test for Olympic standout Phelps For all Michael Phelps has accomplished and for all the world records he has smashed, it has still become a bit of a tradition for the swimming world to doubt him on eve of the FINA World Championships. The World Championships, which are held every two years and regarded as the biggest nonOlympic competition in swimming, begin this morning in Shanghai, China, and once again, the world isn’t sure what to expect from Phelps — other than he’ll be competing in four individual events: the 200 meter

freestyle, the 200 meter individual medley and the 100 and 200 meter butterfly. The most decorated Olympian in history hasn’t exactly resembled his old dominant self this summer, and after Phelps confessed that his motivation and his training have been spotty during the past year, speculation swirled that his reign as the best swimmer in the world may come to a definitive end. Ryan Lochte, Phelps’ American teammate and close friend, seems poised to grab that unofficial title this week. “After last year and kind of messing around really for two

years it’s kind of hard to really tell where we stand,” Phelps told reporters prior to the start of world championships. But this isn’t a new position for Phelps. Three previous times — in 2005, 2007 and 2009 — he faced real doubts about how well he would perform prior to worlds. In 2005, they turned out to be warranted, as he failed to make the finals of the 400 meter freestyle and got whipped by Ian Crocker in the 100 meter butterfly. Phelps called the event a sobering wake up call, and said the races were the most frustrating of

his career. But in Melbourne in 2007, with much of the Australian media writing prior to the competition that Phelps would never surpass Ian Thorpe as an all-time great, Phelps stunned the world by winning seven gold medals and breaking four world records. In Rome in 2009, he was still struggling a bit to move beyond the controversy of a photo that

surfaced of him presumably smoking marijuana. Phelps also made the difficult decision to stand by his sponsor, Speedo, and refused to wear one the newest high tech swimsuits, a decision he knew would put him at a competitive disadvantage. When his Serbian rival Milorad Cavic broke Phelps’ world record in the semifinals in the100 meter butterfly, it seemed like Phelps’ reign as the

king of the pool was about to end. But he again rose to the occasion and became the first person to break the 50 second barrier in the event, recapturing the world record with a time of 49.82.

expecting to come under heavy pressure today as she bids for her first title of the year, and her second Evian Masters trophy in three years. She was sixth at the recent U.S. Open, but her best result this year was a tie for fifth at the Sybase Match Play Championship in May. “Two shots leading is still nothing on this golf course, I think. Still so many players can shoot low score (today),” Miyazato said. “It’s still wet on the fairway, but the greens are really receptive, you can still be aggressive.” Overnight leader Miki Saiki of Japan, Ran Hong of South Korea and Angela Stanford are also at 11 under. Evian Masters I.K. Kim of South Korea moved into contention after EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France shooting up the leaderboard — Former champion Ai Miyazato of Japan shot a 5-under 67 with a brilliant round of 64 to sit three shots behind.

Canadian Adam Hadwin, playing on a sponsor’s exemption, missed a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to finish with a 68, and alone in second at 4-under 206. Andres Romero (67) and first-round leader Kris Blanks (69) are tied for third, two shots back, after another tough day in the thick rough along the tight, tree-lined Shaugnessy Golf and Country Club. John Daly, who four-putted No. 18 for triple-bogey Friday, shot 67 and is in a group of four at 2 under with Sean O Hair (66), Aron Price (69) and Geoff Ogilvy (70).

I hit it five feet right ... I hope I can birdie (it today).” Kim is looking for her first tournament win this year after third-place finishes at the Kia Classic and the LPGA Thailand — where she hit a round of 63, her best of the year. Hong matched Miyazato’s round, Stanford and Lewis had 69s and Saiki finished with a 70. Lewis also expects to see some very low scores today. “The course is so soft and so scoreable you know somebody’s going to shoot 5 or 6 under,” she said. Nordea Masters STOCKHOLM — Alexander Noren of Sweden shot a courserecord 9-under 63 Saturday to extend his lead to 11 shots after the third round of the Nordea Masters. Noren held a three-shot overnight lead and made seven birdies and an eagle in a flawless round on the Bro Hof Slott course for a 20-under total of 196. He equaled the second largest third-round lead ever on the European Tour, behind Retief Goosen’s 13-shot edge at the 2002 Johnnie Walker Classic. “It was an amazing feeling,” Noren said. “I never thought it would be possible to shoot these scores.” Bubba Watson shot a 69 to sit in second place, one stroke ahead of Christian Nilsson of Sweden and Jaco Van Zyl of South Africa.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Jennifer Caira and Canada seem to have America’s number at the World Cup of Softball. Kaleigh Rafter homered and drove in three runs, and the Canadians beat the United States 4-3 on Saturday for their second straight win over the once-dominant Americans at the World Cup. Despite never having won the title, Canada (3-1) is the only team ever to beat the U.S. more than once at the World Cup. Before she became a two-time national player of the year and Women’s College World Series winner at Washington, Danielle Lawrie beat the U.S. in the first ever World Cup game in 2005. The U.S. hadn’t lost an international game in three years before that defeat. The Canadians also beat the U.S. in last year’s event, although the Americans rebounded to win their fourth straight championship. “We’ve played well against the U.S. national team here but we haven’t really had much success in the tournament itself,” Rafter said. “So, getting to the championship game would for sure be big for us.” The Americans (2-1), featuring no Olympic veterans on this year’s squad, are now in jeopardy of missing the World Cup final for the first time. They played 2008 Olympic gold medalist Japan later Saturday night and needed to win to maintain any chance at reaching the championship game Monday night. “It’s a big game. We’re in the pressure cooker. It’s on,” said Kaitlin Cochran, who hit a solo home run in the second for the U.S. “We either get it done or we don’t. But that’s how champions rise, right?” Caira (2-0) beat the U.S. for the second straight year at the World Cup, giving up two runs in five innings. She pitched the first four innings, then was replaced by Jocelyn Cater for two innings, before re-entering in the seventh to

get out of a jam. Keilani Ricketts had a pinch hit RBI single in the seventh, and the U.S. had the tying run on third when Stacy May-Johnson grounded back to Caira to end the game. “They were gutty. I don’t think you can say much else,” said Rafter, the catcher. “I don’t know if they had their best stuff, but they were in there every pitch just gutting it out and they threw awesome. They came through in the clutch.” Melanie Matthews started the game by smacking a ground-rule double to the gap in right, and Canada quickly got to Chelsea Thomas (0-1). Victoria Hayward drew a walk before Rafter lined a two-run double to right. Thomas let Rafter get to third on a wild pitch, but then avoided any further damage in the first. Rafter answered Cochran’s homer with her own blast to center in the third, and Canada extended its lead to 4-1 on Hayward’s RBI groundout in the fourth. “I was looking for one pitch on that first one and I got it and I actually put a good swing on it, so that was good for me. Then the second time through, I figured they’d do something a little different,” Rafter said. Thomas, who got the save in the Americans’ first two World Cup games, wasn’t as sharp in her first World Cup start. “I didn’t feel like I had a lot of pop on the ball today,” Thomas said. “Sometimes you have those days, and you’ve just got to learn from the experience and see where it can take you next time.” Cochran singled and scored on Valerie Arioto’s double in the fourth. Cater snuffed out a U.S. rally in the sixth by striking out the side to leave two runners stranded

WALTON ON THE HILL, England — Mark Calcavecchia surrendered a three-shot cushion to end the third round of the Senior British Open on Saturday tied for the lead with fellow American Russ Cochran and South Africa’s David Frost. Calcavecchia, the co-leader after the first and second rounds at Walton Heath, was in cruise control at 10 under with six holes remaining before imploding when his accuracy off the tee deserted him. A disastrous triple-bogey 7 at No. 13 — after driving into the heather beside the fairway — was followed by another dropped shot on No. 16, although the 1989 British Open champion salvaged something from his round with a neat birdie at the final hole. Calcavecchia, bidding to become the fourth player to capture the British Open double, shot 72 to put him at 7under 209. His stumble gave a bunched-up field renewed hope in the Champions Tour’s third major of the year. Frost shot a bogey-free 66, tied for lowest round of the week on the parkland course just south of London, while Cochran’s 67 included a doublebogey 6 on No. 14. Corey Pavin, the United States’ 2010 Ryder Cup captain, and England’s Barry Lane each shot 69 and were a shot off the lead, with three more Americans — Chip Beck, Mike Goodes and Lee Rinker — at 5 under. Three-time winner Tom Watson was one of four players a further stroke behind after a 69 in a third round played in overcast conditions with a light breeze. Calcavecchia, who has been in a three-way share of the lead after every round this tournament, described his errant driving on the back nine as “army golf” because it alternated between going left and right off the tee. “Today was exactly what’s been happening to me all year,” said Calcavecchia, who is without a tournament victory in 2011. “I drive it great for a while and then I just lose it. That’s what I was worried about — and then it happens to me. I have to figure it out by tomorrow.

Uruguay shooting for another Country is seeking its 15th Copa America title as it faces struggling Paraguay today.

By TALES AZZONI Associated Press

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — A surprising Copa America will end today with favored Uruguay playing a Paraguayan team that hasn’t won a game at the tournament. Uruguay is trying to become the tournament’s most successful team. Paraguay is looking to prove it deserves South America’s most important soccer trophy despite its poor play. The final at Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires will cap a tournament in which Argentina and Brazil didn’t even make it past the quarterfinals. Venezuela and Peru, the usual underdogs, stayed longer than the powerhouses. Uruguay, a World Cup semifinalist last year, has a chance to win a record 15th Copa America title, one more than host Argentina. “We know what we are after,” Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez said. “We have a great opportunity and we are well prepared to take advantage of it. This is a final, not only the last match in a tournament. It will determine each team’s place in the history of this competition.” Uruguay is trying to win its

first Copa America title since hosting the tournament in 1995. It is the team’s first final at a major competition since 1999, when it lost to Brazil at the Copa America in Paraguay. The Uruguayans eliminated Argentina in a penalty-kick shootout in the quarterfinals. They then defeated Peru 2-0 in the semifinals. Paraguay, on the other hand, has somehow found its way to the final. “Uruguay is in the process of getting better, having played its best match in the semifinals,” said Paraguay coach Gerardo Martino. “Paraguay is the complete opposite. We are getting worse.” Paraguay was badly outplayed by defending champion Brazil in the quarterfinals but held on to win in a penalty shootout. The team struggled again against Venezuela in the semifinals, winning on penalties after being saved by the woodwork three times in regulation and extra time. Although the Paraguayans acknowledge they have been lucky, Uruguay is quick to downplay its role as heavy favorite. “Paraguay has a lot of history and tradition in football,” Tabarez said. “They are known for being able to fight against adversities. They are very physical.” Paraguay, which has played in the past four World Cups, is trying to win its third Copa America

title after victories in 1953 and 1979. President Fernando Lugo sent a support letter to the squad on Saturday, saying that “with faith, everything is possible, even in challenging times.” Martino will have problems selecting his starting lineup because of key injuries. Star striker Roque Santa Cruz and winger Aureliano Torres will definitely miss the final, and forward Nelson Haedo Valdez and midfielder Edgar Barreto are not 100 percent because of nagging ailments. Martino won’t even be allowed in the dugout. He was ejected against Venezuela when he and assistant Jorge Pautasso repeatedly argued with the referee. The team will be anchored by goalkeeper Justo Villar, who was key for Paraguay both in the quarterfinals and semifinals. Uruguay will be at full strength and feature Diego Forlan, who last year was voted the World Cup’s best player. He scored five times in South Africa but is going through a bit of a slump, having not scored in 12 matches. “I’m fine, we are on the right track,” the Atletico de Madrid player said. “I’ve been having some opportunities but the ball just doesn’t want to go in. But the team is playing well and that’s the most important thing.” Uruguay has a squad containing 20 of the 23 players at the World Cup.

FIFA bans bin Hammam for life Qatari official was found guilty of bribery after he secured 2022 World Cup. GRAHAM DUNBAR AP Sports Writer

ZURICH — Mohamed bin Hammam’s downfall from being one of soccer’s most powerful men to a disgraced outcast was completed Saturday when FIFA banned the Qatari official for life for his role in a bribery scandal. FIFA found Bin Hammam guilty of bribing presidential election voters just months after he helped secure 2022 World Cup hosting rights for his tiny Gulf homeland. The scandal led to him having to abandon his campaign to unseat FIFA President Sepp Blatter, and ultimately led to the veteran executive committee member becoming the most senior official convicted of corruption in the governing body’s 107-year history. A FIFA ethics panel ruled that the Qatari candidate conspired to pay Caribbean officials $40,000 cash bribes in May in exchange for their support in the election. The verdict after a two-day hearing “was in keeping with the declared policy of the committee to show zero tolerance of unethical behavior,” panel chairman Petrus Damaseb said. Damaseb also called on FIFA to consider opening cases against three more executive committee members who joined bin Hammam on a fateful campaign visit to Trinidad. Bin Hammam’s lawyer said he maintained his innocence and rejected the findings based on “socalled circumstantial evidence.” “He will continue to fight his

FIFA banned Mohamed bin Hammam from football for life on Saturday.

case through the legal routes that are open to him,” lead counsel Eugene Gulland told reporters. Bin Hammam can challenge his life ban at the FIFA appeals body and then the Court of Arbitration for Sport. “We are confident of the strength of our case and invite FIFA to make available now to the media a full transcript of these proceedings,” Gulland said in a prepared statement. Bin Hammam has claimed the case was politically motivated to stop him challenging Blatter, who was re-elected unopposed last month three days after the Asian Football Confederation president withdrew his candidacy. Bin Hammam didn’t cooperate with a FIFA investigation or attend the hearing. He wrote on his website Friday, while the FIFA panel sat in session, that he expected a guilty verdict. FIFA also suspended two Caribbean Football Union staffers, Debbie Minguell and Jason Sylvester, for one year for their part in distributing the bribes at a May10-11conference in Trinidad.

FIFA faces further focus on corruption in its ranks as Damaseb, a judge from Namibia, called for a second wave of investigations. Damaseb’s five-man panel asked FIFA’s legal department to prepare cases against officials who attended bin Hammam’s campaign stop at a Port of Spain hotel. Those present included executive committee members Worawi Makudi of Thailand, Vernon Manilal Fernando of Sri Lanka and Hany Abou Rida from Egypt. Caribbean soccer leaders believed to have taken bin Hammam’s bribes, and denying to FIFA investigators that any corruption took place, are also under suspicion. In a separate judgment, FIFA issued a warning to executive committee member Chuck Blazer, who commissioned a dossier of evidence including statements from Caribbean whistleblowers which sparked the explosive case. Damaseb said Blazer was wrong to have suggested at a May 30 meeting in Zurich that CFU members were “under investigation” at that time. FIFA’s panel dismissed an additional CFU complaint that Blazer’s comment was racially motivated. Bin Hammam’s lawyer aimed a further apparent barb at Blazer, who has represented the United States in FIFA’s high command since 1996. Bin Hammam is the third serving FIFA executive committee member banned from soccer for ethics violations in the past nine months. A fourth, FIFA vice president Jack Warner, dodged the panel’s judgment by resigning.

Group hopes to increase pheasant population

THE FACTORYVILLE SPORTSMEN’S CLUB will hold its regular monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. on July 27 at the clubhouse. Board president Kevin Weisenfluh will have a limited number of Supergun event tickets remaining for pick up. THE U.S. ARMY CORPS ENGINEERS PHILADELPHIA DISTRICT has announced it will hold whitewater releases Sept. 3-4 and increase fisheries releases from the Francis E. Walter Dam. The Corps updated the recreation plan, which states whitewater events scheduled for the first weekend in September will be held if adequate water storage is accumulated in the reservoir. A rainy season has enabled the Corps to schedule the events. The whitewater releases will be 650 cubic feet per second (cfs) plus inflow up to a total of 800 cfs. They would bring the total number of whitewater events to 23 for 2011. The Corps will also utilize available storage for weekday and weekend fisheries enhancement releases of 100 cubic feet per second plus inflow up to 300 cfs through Aug. 19 and 50 cubic feet per second plus inflow up to 300 cfs through Sept 11. If sufficient water storage is accumulated during the remainder of the season, additional releases will be announced according to the recreation plan. To view the plan, visit the Corps web site or Facebook fan page: http://www.nap.usace.army.mil/Projects/FEWalter/index.htm http://www.facebook.com/ fewalterdam THE SUSQUEHANNA RIVER BASIN COMMISSION (SRBC www.srbc.net) announced that 36 separate water withdrawals approved by SRBC are temporarily suspended due to localized stream flow levels dropping at many locations in the Susquehanna basin, especially in northern Pennsylvania. Under SRBC’s passby flow restrictions, when streams drop to predetermined protected low flow levels, project sponsors who are required to meet the agency’s passby requirement must stop taking water. They cannot resume taking water until streams have recovered above the protected level for at least 48 hours. SRBC and its regulated project sponsors monitor real-time stream flow data generated by stream gages maintained and operated by the U.S. Geological Survey.

Working for a better hunt Increase in allocation

By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

Ross Piazza is bothered by the fact that pheasants hunting in Pennsylvania isn’t what it used to be. He estimates that the number of pheasant hunters in the state has dropped by 80 percent since the 1970s, and the decline will continue if something isn’t done soon. But Piazza, who serves as habitat chairman of the Northeast PA chapter of Pheasants Forever, has a possible solution to enhance pheasant hunting: simply encourage more people to raise the birds and release them into suitable habitat that can be hunted. To aid the cause, Piazza recently started a new organization – Pheasants Afield – to work with landowners who want to revive pheasant hunting and also study ways to keep more pheasants on the Pennsylvania landscape. “We know that pheasant hunting will never be what it was years ago,” Piazza said. “But our idea is to get areas with a few hundred acres, release pheasants and see what we can learn about things like mortality and nesting success. From that, we can make a template that others can use.” Despite his new organization, Piazza said he is still committed to Pheasants Forever and added the two groups can co-exist because their missions are different. “Pheasants Forever is a habitat organization. We’re a propagation organization,” Piazza said. As part of the Pheasants Afield mission, Piazza and others in the group are currently raising a few hundred birds that they will release this fall. Some will be let go for a youth pheasant hunt, while others will be released into areas to be studied. Although there is a belief that pen-

Next year the Pennsylvania Game Commission will increase its pheasant allocation from 100,000 to 200,000. Piazza said the move is encouraging because it puts more pheasants on the landscape for hunters. “It gives us a shot in the arm because it’s going to revive an interest in pheasant hunting with more birds out there,” he said. For more information on Pheasants Afield, call Piazza at 760-9342.

reared pheasants can’t survive in the wild, Piazza isn’t convinced. Next spring Pheasants Afield will release pheasants into area to study aspects such as mortality and nesting success. The key to improving the odds that the birds will establish in those areas is to release them early so they can grow in the habitat,” Piazza said. “Within the first four to five weeks of the birds’ life

the imprinting takes place, and that’s a key time to get them in the habitat where we want them to establish.” One piece of equipment that Piazza feels may help with the imprinting process is called the Surrogator, which is a self-contained unit that provides pheasant chicks with food, water, warmth and protection for the first five weeks. The Surrogator is placed in the area where the pheasants are to be released, and they become imprinted to that location and remain. “The biggest problem with pen-raised birds is when they’re stocked they don’t know to return to that area,” Piazza said, adding he hopes to get grant money to use telemetry and study the movements of released pheasants. Piazza said a 10 percent survival rate of the released birds would be an acceptable goal. And if those 10 percent can successfully nest, that next generation of pheasants would essentially be wild. He’s seen examples of pen-raised birds that go on to nest in the wild and rear young, and Piazza is optimistic it can work on a larger scale throughout the state. “I don’t believe the science is settled when it comes to pheasants in Pennsylvania,” he said. “We want to get the birds out there in good habitat to enhance hunting and see if we can bring them back.”

Habitat Field Day planned

SUBMITTED PHOTO

A Wildlife Habitat Field Day will be held on Aug. 6 at Sorber Mountain. The event, which is free, will run from 10 a.m. to noon and feature presentations from groups such as Quality Deer Management Association, Pheasants Forever, Pheasants Afield and the National Wild Turkey Federation. Speakers include Pennsylvania NWTF president Dale Butler, Ross Piazza of Pheasants Afield and Chip Sorber of QDMA, Jack Sorber of NWTF and QDMA, John Piccotti of Pheasants Forever, Josh Miller of QDMA and a representative from BigBucks.com. A free wildlife habitat consultation will be given to all attendees. Directions for the site: at the intersection of routes 29 and 118, travel north on Route 29 for four miles; turn left onto Sorber Mountain Road and go two miles; turn left onto Sorber Mountain West Road and go one-half mile to the dead end. The event is sponsored by the South Mountain Land Association. Snacks and beverages will be provided. For information, call 477-2303.

pair of hemlock logs laid on the ramp in front of Leon Moyer’s sawmill. A few weeks ago Moyer cut the hemlock tree, which was dead, and brought two logs back to his Dorrance Township sawmill in an attempt to salvage the wood. The tree died, he said, as a result of the woolly adelgid infestation – an insect that pierces the base of the needles and sucks out fluids. It’s a slow, lingering death for a tree and the two logs on Moyer’s ramp weren’t the only victims. Moyer motioned to the woods behind his sawmill and singled out a cluster of a hemlocks that stood bare and lifeless against the blue July sky. At one time the group of hemlocks were giants in the forest that surrounds Moyer’s sawmill. Today, thanks to the woolly adelgid, they are nothing but skeletons. Chances are they won’t be alone. Much of the mountain surrounding the sawmill is comprised of hemlocks. Moyer, who took the mill over from his father decades ago, could only shake his head as he pondered the likely devastation that could spread through the mountain. The woolly adelgid was discovered in Pennsylvania in the late 1960s. It’s spread has accelerated and the insect is now found in 49 counties. And it has company, as far as forest pests go. The emerald ash borer recently turned up in southern Wyoming County. It was found on one of those purple triangle-shaped boxes that have become commonplace throughout the area. The boxes are coated with a sticky substance – kind of like a big fly tape. A multitude of insects can be found stuck on the sides. Unfortunately, the emerald ash borer was found stuck on one in Wyoming County this summer. And, like the woolly adelgid, the presence of the ash borer is bad news. The Wyoming County discovery is partularly bad because, based on where the insect had been known to exist, it leapfrogged from Lycoming County over Sullivan. As of now, none of the counties bordering Wyoming have a documented case of the ash borer. Chances are the insect reached Wyoming County via somebody transporting ash firewood that harbored the pest. That’s a major concern because for the last few years the state has been adamant with its public message not to transport firewood across the state. Apparently, someone didn’t listen and now the Emerald ash borer has reached northeastern Pennsylvania. One forester I spoke to said it’s assumed that wherever the ash borer is found that it has been in that area for five years. Even worse, the forester said the state has been advising forest owners to manage their woodlots as if the ash trees won’t be here in the future. Unfortunately, that’s probably good advice. The Emerald ash borer and woolly adelgid are just two of the threats to Pennsylvania’s forest. The extended list includes the American chestnut blight, beech scale, forest tent caterpillar and the gypsy moth. Another may even be on the way as the Asian longhorn beetle, which destroys hardwoods, has been discovered nearby in New York and New Jersey. Chances are all of these threats will have an impact to some degree on Pennsylvania’s forest. No, there won’t be a void in the ecosystem – nature’s good at preventing that. But things could look drastically different in the future. A future where there may be no more hemlock logs on the ramp of Leon Moyer’s sawmill.

Most of the heatwaves we see in our area typically end with a bang. With a strong thunderstorm, our region tends to go from 90s and sticky to 70s and a comfortable breeze in the blink of an eye. That's not in the cards this goaround. It will take a couple of days to ramp our temperatures down from some of the warmest readings we've seen in over 15 years. A few storms will be possible today, but the better chance will be tomorrow as multiple cold fronts pass through the region. By Tuesday skies should clear a bit with highs in the lower 80s and lower humidity levels. The relief from the heat will be short-lived, however, as a recharged ridge of high pressure takes us back to the 90s by the end of the week. Early indications do not point to the same type of heat as last week: some good news.

Commerce nominee won acclaim as utility CEO By JIM PUZZANGHERA Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON — John Bryson’s work life has bounced from environmental activist to California regulator to utility company executive and now to nominee for Commerce secretary. But his career so far has been defined by the one stop he never made — Bankruptcy Court. As chief executive of Edison InBryson ternational, Bryson fought tirelessly to keep the company from collapsing during the California electricity crisis a decade ago. He went on TV to beg customers to conserve energy. And he forged controversial deals with state officials to avoid the fate of fellow utility Pacific Gas & Electric Co., drawing the wrath of consumer groups for locking in high electricity rates to keep Edison out of bankruptcy. Within months, the corporate parent of Southern California Edison returned to profitability. And, unlike other key players in the crisis, Bryson emerged with his reputation burnished instead of tarnished. “At the end of the day, John got most of what he wanted. The company did not have to go into bankruptcy,” said then-California Gov. Gray Davis, who was involved in lengthy negotiations with Bryson over Edison’s fate. “He made it very clear he didn’t want to go that route. He said that a zillion times.” But such success isn’t helping Bryson win Senate confirmation.

Nostalgia in a bottle Vintage soda makers keep refreshing, tasty traditions alive By KORKY VANN The Hartford Courant

HARTFORD, Conn. — If you like a crisp white with chicken or fish, a hearty full-bodied red with beef, or perhaps something fruitier with dessert, Rob Metz has some suggestions, and none includes alcohol. That’s because Metz is the owner, flavor developer and occasional bottle washer at Avery Beverages, one of Connecticut’s oldest soda producers.

You could also call him a soda sommelier. “Maybe a lime rickey, a black cherry and an orange cream,” mused Metz, who bought the business13 years ago. “Our lime rickeyismadewithlesssugar,soit’sdryand tart. The black cherry can stand up to a burger. And our orange cream tastes like a Creamsicle, so it’s a great way to finish off a meal.” The company, which opened in 1904 in New Britain, Conn., still makes its products the old-fashioned way. No aluminum cans. So does Hosmer Mountain Soda in Willimantic, Conn., which opened in 1912, and Foxon Park in East Haven, Conn., which

opened in1922. Sodas at these vintage companies are handcrafted in small batches using methods and recipes from generations ago and sold in glass bottles packed into wooden crates. For most, the biggest concession to modern times is the addition of diet varieties. “Our equipment is state-of-the-art 1950s,” Metz said. Avery’s product line includes 40 flavors — many of which, like sarsaparilla, have been around since the company opened for See SODA, Page 2D

Family-run bakery supplies ethnic flavor to local grocery stores By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

Combining a unique product with salesmanship, a local ethnic bakery has gone from making spinach pies in a family kitchen to supplying pita bread to chain supermarkets as far away as Allentown. The bread is made by family-run Atie’s Bakery at a facility on Welles Street in Forty Fort. Part owner Abdu Atie said that after selling the bread locally for about 10 years he began to seek grocery stores to carry the product.

Today, Atie’s provides pita bread to Weis Markets, Thomas’ Family Market, Malacari’s Produce and Deli, Schiel’s Family Market, Wegmans in Wilkes-Barre Township, and three Wegmans in the Allentown area. The bakery also makes spinach pies and meat pies for the House of Nutrition in Luzerne. Making the jump from a neighborhood See ATIE’S, Page 3D

egular readers of this column know that I’m a champion of small business. Most of my professional life has been spent working for entrepreneurs or running my own small newspapers. Those experiences have caused me to admire individuals and families who start or successfully continue local restaurants, specialty shops, used car lots and myriad other businesses that provide them a living while adding to the character of our communities. But there’s one place where it’s hard to argue against bigger being better – health care. And with last week’s announcement of further consolidation among providers in this region, we’re about to test whether that theory is true, as Geisinger Health System and Community Health Systems dominate the market. I’m not talking about the bedside manner of your family doctor, but about acute and emergency care that can and does save lives. Providing top-flight responses to major events like heart attack and cancer costs big bucks, something the hospitals that have been acquired simply didn’t have. And smart health care providers know that getting more bang for those bucks will be a priority in the future, because the nation cannot afford to continue the rapid escalation in health care spending that has occurred in past decades. That’s why it’s important that these companies invest wisely in their new acquisitions. Combined, Geisinger and CHS have pledged to spend $422 million on enhancements to the four hospital systems they have taken over in the past two years, with Geisinger adding another $60 million in upgrades to its Wyoming Valley Medical Center. Beyond brick and mortar, these improvements have brought new specialties and highly trained physicians to the region. We can use more of that. Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania has estimated that local health care consumers leave the area to seek $750 million worth of medical care each year, largely because they believe quality is higher in places like Philadelphia and New York. Perhaps that’s just another manifestation of the bigger is better perception, but it’s one the local systems now have a chance to combat. Spending millions foolishly won’t cut it, though. As much as they need to compete, the systems and countless patients will benefit if they avoid a “medical arms race” fed by the addition of expensive, sophisticated equipment that makes for great marketing but often is underutilized. While being careful not to allow them to rig the game, the state can help by closely scrutinizing plans to add services and equipment and pressing the hospitals to limit unnecessary overlaps. We are fortunate to have two of the most-respected health care providers in the nation serving this area. Though the not-for-profit Geisinger and forprofit CHS are exceedingly different in many ways, each has a history of taking a thoughtful approach to health care delivery. And since both have said there are enough patients in this region to support two systems, it only makes sense for them to aim for the kind of fiscal efficiency that directs funds where they can do the most good for patients. ••• Score one for the Marcellus Shale Coalition; its just-released rose-coloredglasses report on natural gas drilling was picked up by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to support drilling in that state’s Southern Tier. And in its usual self-serving manner, the coalition sent a press release about its own study, repeating claims for job creation and economic benefit that are at best questionable and at worst totally unsupportable by evidence.

Marketing, on the other hand, is more new millennium. Avery has a Facebook page with more than 3,000 followers. Carbonated drinks are a multibillion-dollar industry in the U.S., but things are tough in the independent fizz biz. Supermarket shelf space is dominated by Coke and PepsiCo lines of bottled water, vitamin drinks, juices, teas and carbonated beverages.

They borrowed $3,000 from family and friends, which enabled them to swing a $35,000 bank line of credit. Five years later, they employ 12, pay them benefits, and record sales in the millions. “Our idea was that we would have the interns do everything we wished we could do but we didn’t have the time: researching new markets; new verticals; posting stuff on Facebook,” Downs said. Meanwhile, Front Rush had been using an online sales board to motivate its staff. It worked well but wasn’t core to the business.

Gently insist on meeting with spineless manager

Disaster plan can assure small-business survival

HACKENSACK, N.J. — Sakhir Khan, owner of Saddle River Hardware, couldn’t believe his eyes when he returned to work from the eye doctor last month, and saw that a flash flood had dumped four feet of water around his store. “It was like an ocean,” he said from the parking lot of his store. Khan and other business owners in that flood’s path say there was little warning, and therefore preparation, during that natural disaster. They lost thousands of dollars of inventory and any chance to turn a profit for the year. By its nature, this kind of disaster is unexpected. But officials from federal business and emergency response agencies say a predisaster plan can be the difference between a business surviving and closing. A federal public awareness campaign this month is promoting low-tech planning steps, such as collecting employee and supplier contact numbers and updating insurance policies, to help businesses shorten their recovery time. “Most businesses don’t have a disaster plan as an annex to their business plan,” said James Rivera, associate administrator of the Small Business Administration’s Office of Disaster Assistance. “In theory, if we have a business that has a disaster plan, this will help them when disaster comes.”

A flash flood leaves Sakhir Khan, left, and Charlene Mabe stranded on the second floor of a building in Saddle River, N.J. Here, emergency personnel use a truck to rescue them from the floodwater.

A disaster preparation plan will ensure business owners carry adequate insurance coverage; back up crucial documents; designate roles for employees during a storm or fire; and prepare a disaster “survival kit,” with first aid, extra food, flashlights and batteries. In Saddle River, heavy rains caused the banks of the Pascack Brook and the Saddle River to overflow on June 24. The ensuing

flash flood swamped roadways and bridges and deluged private properties. David Meeks, owner of Waterford Gardens in Saddle River, said he is used to flooding. His 6-acre green house and koi pond operation sits just off the Saddle River. The problem last month, however, was the speed in which the water arrived. There was no time to elevate his products or even move ei-

ther of his delivery trucks, both of which were flooded. He says he probably lost $100,000 from the disaster. “We won’t recover,” he said. “We won’t have a profitable year when we lose that much.” Neither Meeks nor Khan carries flood insurance because they say the premiums are too expensive for a policy that still may not cover certain loses.

Lastweek,Sen.JamesM.Inhofe, R-Okla., placed a hold on the nomination, a procedural hurdle that will take 60 votes from Bryson supporters to overcome. Nearly all Senate Republicans already had vowed to block the confirmation of any nominee for Commerce secretary in a dispute over pending free-trade deals with South Korea, Panama and Colombia. Agreements, though, could be reached in the coming days. Some conservatives have criticized Bryson for his involvement with companies that depend on government regulation or subsidies. Those include Edison, a regulated utility, and BrightSource En-

ergy, a solar-energy firm whose board Bryson chairs. A Wall Street Journal editorial dubbed him “Secretary of Subsidy.” And some Republicans have rebuked him for being one of six cofounders in 1970 of the Natural Resources Defense Council, an aggressive organization that often has sued companiesforallegedlyviolatingenvironmental regulations. Bryson also has come under fire for favorable comments he made in 2009 about a DemocraticHousebilltoaddressclimate change. “His approach ... toward affordable energy is harmful to American businesses,” said Sen.

one of the nation’s “most extreme environmental organizations.” Bryson did a good job promoting energyefficiencyandelectrictransportation, but “the last thing you could call him is an environmental extremist,” said V. John White, executive director of the Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies in Sacramento, Calif. “He bought coal plants. He successfully blocked power plant controls that should have been installed 10 years earlier. And he actively resisted renewables until the end of his career” at Edison, White said.

MarketPulse EUROPEAN BRIGHT SPOT Europe may be struggling, but U.S. companies said danke, merci and gracias a lot more often last year. Revenue from Europe for companies in the S&P 500 rose 8 percent in 2010, according to Standard & Poor’s. It was the strongest area of foreign growth. Exxon Mobil, for example, got 18 percent more revenue from Europe last year. The strength comes despite Europe’s slower economic growth. The 27nation European Union’s economy grew 1.8 percent last year, versus 2.9 percent for the U.S.

NOT LEAVING LAS VEGAS Finally, some signs that Vegas is back. Las Vegas had been struggling since the recession meant fewer tourists. The weakness meant casino operators were focusing more on their Asian properties, where the growth was stronger. But Wynn Resorts said last week that revenue at its Las Vegas properties grew by more than 20 percent for the second straight quarter. Executives said foreign tourists, particularly Chinese ones, were filling Vegas rooms. Credit Suisse analysts, though, say Vegas’ rebound is spotty: Business is better for high-end casinos, but lower-end ones aren’t improving as much.

NO MISSING THE SWISS What’s safer than gold? Apparently the Swiss franc. The Swiss currency has climbed against gold, the dollar and the euro in 2011 because investors are looking for something safe to own. Investors are worried about possible defaults by either the U.S. or a European country. Of course, the Swiss franc’s rise means some financial analysts say it now looks expensive against other currencies. Swiss policymakers could also try to weaken the currency to help their exporters. But when Switzerland tried that in 2009 and 2010, it didn’t have much effect, says Capital Economics.

Stan Choe, Kristen Girard • AP

A record 2012 Philip Orlando, chief equity market strategist for Federated Investors, expects the economy to rebound in the second half of the year. He says continued growth in corporate earnings could push the S&P 500 to a record in 2012, surpassing its old peak of 1,565.15 set in October 2007.

InsiderQ&A

Corporate earnings have been strong, but economic reports have been weak. Where’s the S&P 500 headed? I agree that earnings are pretty good, and that stock prices are pretty cheap. We’re sitting here (with the S&P 500) trading at about 13 times (the expected total earnings of S&P 500 companies over the next year), yet with the 10-year Treasury yield down around 3 percent and (relatively low) core inflation. Our view is that (the price-toearnings) multiple probably ought to be closer to 16. We’re thinking that stocks, even though they’ve doubled over the last two years, probably ought to end this year at or near 1,450. And we’re looking at a 1,600 kind of S&P number next year, which would be an all-time record high.

Orlando

That means you think Treasury yields will stay around 3 percent? No, we’re expecting Treasury yields to back up to 5 percent over the next two years. The target price-earnings ratio on stocks is roughly the inverse of the Treasury yield. So with Treasury yields at 3 percent right now, I could justify a 30 (price-to-earnings) multiple (because one divided by three is close to 30). I’m not going to, because I don’t think a 3 percent Treasury yield is appropriate. The only rationalization you can extend for Treasury yields being where they are is that there is a massive amount of fear out there, and this is a flight-to-quality rally. If investors were trying to price in economic fundamentals, Treasury yields would be 4 or 5 percent. I’m more than happy to price in a 5 percent Treasury yield right now. On that basis, it would get me to 20 times (for a price-earnings multiple because one divided by five is 20). My expectation of a 16 multiple by next year is extraordinarily conservative given how benign the inflation and interest rate picture is. The best performing stocks last quarter were from the health care, utility and other “defensive” industries that do well when the economy is weak. Can they still rise? We do like health care equipment and services. We do like consumer staples, specifically the food, beverage, tobacco names. But as the economy reasserts itself from a growth standpoint in the second half of the year, we’re probably going to fade that defensive trade and shift to a more aggressive allocation, adding to technology and industrials and consumer discretionary. What do you like in tech? Software is the area that looks best right now. Generally speaking, we think there is going to be a significant ramp in spending based upon (companies upgrading their technology systems) because of the (changes to) the tax code that the president signed into law last year. (They provide incentives to companies to make capital investments by the end of 2011). We think technology will be a big beneficiary of that, and we think that will happen particularly in the fourth quarter. Why do you prefer U.S. stocks now over foreign ones when the strongest growth is coming from emerging markets? The fact of the matter is that Brazil and China and India have a lot of growth, but that’s also been reflected in valuation levels. We neutralized our emerging bet in the fourth quarter of last year. I think that’s more of a (short-term) tactical call. We have every reason to believe that those sectors are going to work again. We just need to see the valuation get a little more normal.

Sandwiched between two of the world’s biggest economic powers, investors often overlook South Korea. Those in search of growth look to its west, at China. To its east is Japan, a market that’s appealing because it has been successful for decades. But Korean stocks were among the best in the world over the last year. Why? Because Korea is between China and Japan, not just in terms of geography but also in growth and safety for its stocks. “You get Japanese-like quality companies with higher growth,” says Michael Oh, portfolio manager of the Matthews Korea fund. Compared to Chinese companies, Samsung Electronics, Hyundai Motor and other Korean companies have better accounting standards. That’s a comfort to

Monetary Fund says. But Korea is dependent on exports. They made up 46 percent of its economy last year. That leaves it vulnerable if global growth keeps slowing. U.S. investors sold more Korean stocks in June than they bought for the first time since 2009 on worries that the global economy was slowing. The U.S. job market weakened and Greece looked like it would default on its debt. The selling may actually make Korean stocks more attractive. They are some of the cheapest in Asia, Credit Suisse says. Korea is also picking up some of the manufacturing Japan lost after its earthquake on March 11, says Citi strategist Geoffrey Dennis. Korea is one of his top picks among emerging markets.

TREASURYS

South Korean stocks have been some of the world's strongest over the last year.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose slightly last week, but it slipped back below 3 percent on Friday. Higher Treasury yields can mean more expensive rates for mortgages and other consumer loans. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage was 4.52 percent last week, up slightly from 4.51 percent a week earlier. A year ago, the average rate was 4.56 percent, Freddie Mac says.

The volatility in the stock market this summer has sent investors to the safety of bonds. That has driven Treasury yields down. At 2.93 percent, the yield on the 10-year Treasury note is near its low for the year. Investors looking for a bigger payout on their investments might want to go back into the stock market — where there are plenty of dividends that can beat bond rates. One-fifth of the stocks in the S&P 500, or 100, have yields higher than the 10-year Treasury. But don’t choose a stock simply because it has a dividend yield that looks good. A dividend yield measures how much cash an investor gets back for each dollar invested, so it rises when a stock falls. Take Frontier Communications. Its dividend yield is better than any other in the S&P 500, at 9.7 percent. But its stock is down 20 per-

cent this year because its earnings have fallen short of Wall Street’s expectations. This screen, powered by FacSet, shows 10

A fond farewell that shouldn’t be forgotten

Claim about whoopie pie gets squashed

THIRTY MILES west of Washington, D.C., the city of Manassas, Va., will today conclude its weekend commemoration of events 150 years ago that focused the attention of a somber nation on the hallowed ground north of the city. As the United States recognizes the sesquicentennial anniversary of its Civil War, states, cities, towns and villages, from Rhode Island to Louisiana, will in the next four years be highlighting the hundreds of historic battles and the thousands of brave soldiers, Blue and Gray, who valiantly fought and gave their lives. However, following the April 1861 pummeling and surrender of Fort Sumter at the hands of Confederate forces in South Carolina’s Charleston harbor, the First Battle of Manassas (July 21, 1861), or the “First Battle of Bull Run” as it is known north of the Charles Mason-Jeremiah Dixon line, is considered the first great engagement of the Civil War. Gen. Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard who in April commanded the Confederate forces at Charleston also was in charge of the southern armies amassing in July 1861 near Manassas. Also present were Confederate States of America generals James Longstreet, who would distinguished himself two years later at Gettysburg; Thomas Jackson, who that day earned a nickname near Bull Run Creek; and Joseph Johnston, whose troops were the first to be repositioned in combat via railroad. Union soldier William Sprague IV made the trip from Rhode Island. Like the American president he supported, the 30-year-old Sprague, believing the war would be short-lived, followed his Rhode Island militia to Washington and the Manassas fields beyond. The First Battle of Bull Run was a Confederate rout and a disaster for the Union Army. Having participated in what was then the largest and bloodiest battle in American history, the defeated remnants of Northern forces made their way back into Washington. It was then that President Abraham Lincoln, Gov. William Sprague of Rhode Island and much of the country came to understand what a long and tragic conflict lay ahead.Gov. Sprague’s 2nd Rhode Island volunteers appear to have departed Providence on June 19, arriving in Washington three days later. In less than a month these raw troops under the command of Col. John Slocum would perform a dangerous flanking maneuver across Bull Run and suffer heavy losses in the face of the enemy. Eight months later Gov. Sprague returned to the field to retrieve the bodies and belongings of Col. Slocum and Maj. Sullivan Ballou. Ballou’s body had been disinterred and desecrated by Confederate troops, but remains of both men were returned to Providence, R.I., and a hero’s funeral. Gov. Sprague also recovered and delivered to Ballou’s wife a letter the major had written her but never mailed. Dated: July 14, 1861 Camp Clark, Washington, Ballou’s compelling love letter was featured in the 1990 Emmy Award-winning documentary “The Civil War” by Ken Burns. During this sesquicentennial anniversary of the conflict that preserved the union, it is all worth viewing and reading again. (See www.pbs.org/ civilwar/war/ballou_letter.html.) “Never forget how much I love you, and when my last breath escapes me on the battle field, it will whisper your name. … “But, O Sarah! If the dead can come back to this earth and flit unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; in the gladdest days and in the darkest nights … always, always, and if there be a soft breeze upon your cheek, it shall be my breath, as the cool air fans your throbbing temple, it shall be my spirit passing by. Sarah do not mourn me dead; think I am gone and wait for thee, for we shall meet again.” Kevin Blaum’s column on government, life and politics appears every Sunday.

HICAGO — What do Sarah Palin, the Federal Election Commission, the United Farm Workers of America, Wikipedia, U.S. Speedskating, pop singer Rebecca Black and Northwestern University have in common? The Colbert Bump. Some know its influence, some crave its generosity. But each has seen its power. For instance, U.S. Speedskating craved the Bump. A week before the start of its 2009 World Cup season, Paul Brabants, director of the team, received a call from a producer with “The Colbert Report,” the satirical Comedy Central news show hosted by the mock-egomaniacal Stephen Colbert. Word had reached the Colbert camp of the team’s troubles, which, to Brabants, seemed insurmountable: The World Cup was starting, the Winter Olympics were just around the corner and the team was facing a massive financial shortfall. Dutch bank DSB had gone under, and with it the $300,000 sponsorship the bank had pledged to the team. So “The Colbert Report” offered to step in, raise the necessary money — and become the official sponsor of U.S. Speedskating. “To be honest, I didn’t think about it that long,” Brabants said. “I don’t want to say there were no reservations. It is a comedy show; we didn’t know how this would be perceived. But right out of the blue, Colbert proposed rallying Colbert Nation to our cause — and that is not a gift you turn down.” Demographically speaking, it’s a dream audience: “The Colbert Report” has a nightly viewership of 1.5 million, and with “The Daily Show,” its companion fake newscast, beats both Leno and Letterman in the coveted 18-to-34-year-old viewing segment. Then there’s its knack for altruism: Our conservative estimate of how much “The Colbert Report” has raised for various charities since 2005, largely through modest viewSee COLBERT, Page 6E

desserts.” What drove the dagger deeper was that the editorial making light of Maine’s claim that it’s the birthplace of the whoopie pie appeared in our own Times Leader. I have dual citizenship in Pennsylvania and Maine, my birthplace. I love the Phillies and admire Penn State football and the fervor of its fans. Cheesesteaks have no equal outside of Pennsylvania. Add pizza and virtually all Italian food in Northeastern Pennsylvania to a list of foods that bring us pride. I love Pennsylvania and in fact have made the best friends of my life here, but Friday’s editorial went too far. It pushed my loyalty to the limit. I read every Times Leader editorial before it is published and our principal writer, Mark Jones, is one of the finest editorial writers in our business, at any paper, large or small. His voice in expressing our institutional assessment of issues, individuals and institutions is consistently steady, well-reasoned and fair. So be it on such substantive matters. Last week Jones showed he knows absolutely To read Mark nothing about Jones’ editorial on whoopie pies. His whoopie pies in its editorial was so off entirety, go to base I was tempted http://tlgets.me/ pie to squish and squash it the way you might chomp down on a soft, fresh whoopie pie, or the way you might crush one if you left it on the car seat and accidentally sat on it. Rarely would the latter be a possibility for me. I buy them and eat them before I start the car. That is when I am in Maine. Maine is dotted throughout its 16 counties with general stores that make their own whoopie pies and also carry state-made commercial ones. All of them are good: Firm but moist, sometimes with a balance of sweetness and a slightly bitter chocolate taste. I’m a sucker for whoopie pies labeled “homemade.” I know a woman in Maine who has been making me homemade whoopie pies for more than 60 years and she set the standard. When I try a new one I first give it the squeeze test, which can be done with the wrapping still on and without putting a permanent dent in the pie. It must be squishy and fresh-feeling. Editorials, by the way, should not be squishy. Anyway, on a vacation day along the Maine coast, I had just found a new homemade whoopie pie. As I sank my teeth into it, I glanced at my email and saw that Jones had sent me this smart aleck, wise-cracking editorial. In case you missed it, I’ll let you read a snippet of it. But first an observation. I have lived in Pennsylvania on and off for more than 30 years and in all that time I have seen only one dessert pretending to be a whoopie pie in the Keystone State. It was at a campground near Harrisburg. The camp store offered customers a choice for starting grills: either the pie or charcoal. I was born in Maine. I know who invented the whoopie pie: Maine. Here’s a sampling of Jones’ attempt at humor and parochialism. “We tried to let it go, but by gosh, Maine lawmakers, you overstepped your bounds this year when you brazenly claimed a rich Pennsylvania culinary tradition — the whoopie pie — as your own. Pennsylvania is no pushover, its 12.7 million residents not cream puffs. So, in the strongest terms possible, hear this: You can have our whoopie pie when you pry it from our sticky dead fingers. “At first, your illegitimate claim to establish the chocolate wonder with marshmallowy-like midsection as See CONNOR, Page 6E

OUR OPINION: OVERSIGHT

Get up to speed on drilling policy

P

ENNSYLVANIA issued its first blueprint for handling the state’s rip-roaring Marcellus Shale natural gas industry on Friday, a belated reaction not unlike slamming shut the barn door after the horse already has bolted, bred, been adopted and retrained to steeplechase, broken its leg and gone to the glue factory. That is to say, it’s unbelievably late. Companies in pursuit of the coveted fuel drilled1,446 wells in the state last year, and 795 the year before that. In the rush toward riches, lawmakers already had thrown open the gates for gas exploration in state forests and stood by as private landowners flocked to sign leases, too, in some cases, getting fleeced in the process. Town hall meetings erupted. Wells blew. Chemicals spilled. Methane might, or might not, have migrated. And lawsuits ensued. Now, at last, the state has a strategy. Almost. Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley and 29 others on the Governor’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission issued a report late last week containing “recommendations to ‘develop a comprehensive, strategic proposal for the responsible and environmentally sound development of Marcellus Shale.’” Those 96 policy recommendations don’t address the central question on many people’s minds: Should we even allow drilling in the Keystone State? Instead, they call for capitalizing on the industry’s explosive potential (by, for instance,

training state residents for jobs in the field and encouraging the use of natural gas-powered vehicles) and for adjusting regulations widely considered to be lax. For example, the minimum distance between a natural gas operation and a private water well should be increased from 200 feet to 500 feet, according to the report. Gov. Tom Corbett, an ally of the industry, presumably will champion the recommendations put forth by the advisory commission, which he established and whose members he chose. It remains to be seen if the Legislature supports the plan. One of the report’s more intriguing recommendations is to create a permanent advisory panel, whose members would stay up to date on matters such as changes in Marcellus drilling technology, new safety data and emerging health studies. The group, likewise, would help the state grapple with controversies involving other natural gas deposits yet to be tapped. Pennsylvania will continue to deal with natural gas issues for decades. Lawmakers can’t afford to let the state’s policies – environmental and economic – lag behind while the industry charges ahead.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “All I want is for justice to be served and for him to be held accountable for what he did.” Sandy Fonzo The mother who garnered national attention for her emotional confrontation with former Luzerne County judge Mark Ciavarella said she’s looking forward to his scheduled Aug. 11 sentencing. She’s continued to advocate for a stiff sentence and changes to juvenile justice laws in Pennsylvania.

Sometimes too much of a Good Thing can be bad LIFE HAS many good things. The problem is that most of these good things can be gotten only by sacrificing other good things. We all recognize this in our daily lives. It is only in politics that this simple, common-sense fact is routinely ignored. In politics, there are not simply good things but some special Good Things – with a capital G and capital T – that always are considered better to have more of. Many of the things advocated by environmental extremists, for example, are things that most of us might think of as good things. But, in politics, they become Good Things whose repercussions and costs are brushed aside as unworthy considerations. Nobody wants to breathe dirty air or drink dirty water. But, if either becomes 98 percent pure, 99 percent pure or 99.9 percent pure, there is some point beyond which the costs skyrocket and the benefits become meager or non-existent. If the slightest trace of any impurity were fatal, the human race would have become extinct thousands of years ago. Not only does the body have defenses to neutralize small amounts of some impurities, some things that are dangerous, or even fatal, in substantial amounts can become harmless or even beneficial in extremely minute amounts, arsenic being one example. As an old adage put it: “It is the dose that makes the poison.” In other words, removing arsenic from our

COMMENTARY THOMAS SOWELL drinking water should obviously be a very high priority – but not after we have gotten it down to some extremely minute trace. There is never going to be 100 percent clean water or air and, the closer we get to that, the more costly it is to remove extremely minute traces of anything. But none of this matters to those who see ever higher standards of “clean water” or “clean air” as a Good Thing. One of the things that has ruined our economy is the notion that both Democrats and Republicans in Washington pushed for years: that a higher rate of homeownership is a Good Thing. There is no question that there are benefits to homeownership. And there should be no question that there are costs as well. But costs get lost in the shuffle. Among the things that Washington politicians of both parties did for years was come up with more and more laws, rules and pressures on private lenders to lower the qualifications standards required for people to get a mortgage to buy a home. It was a full-court press from congressional legislation to regulations and policies created by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Federal Reserve, not to mention the buying of the resulting risky mortgages by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from the original lenders – and even threats

of prosecution by the Department of Justice if the racial mixture of people who were approved for mortgages didn’t match their expectations. The news media chimed in with expressions of outrage when data showed that black applicants for mortgage loans were turned down more often than white applicants. Seldom was it even mentioned that white applicants were turned down more often than Asian-American applicants. Such distracting details would have spoiled the story that racial discrimination was the reason why some people did not get the Good Thing of homeownership as often as others. Even after the risky mortgages that were made under government pressure led to huge bankruptcies and bailouts, as well as disasters for homeowners in general and black homeowners in particular, homeownership remains a Good Thing. The Justice Department is again threatening lenders who don’t lower their standards to let more minority applicants get mortgage loans. Higher miles per gallon for cars is a Good Thing in politics, even if it leads to cars too lightly built to protect occupants when there is a crash. More students going to college is another Good Thing, even if lowering standards to get them admitted results in lower educational quality for others. Too much of a Good Thing is bad.

No moving up for middle class

Y

OU DON’T NEED to watch “Mad Men” to know that the 1950s and ’60s fell short of being a Golden Age for everyone – except that it was the era of America’s greatest invention: the vast middle class. On Monday, Bob Herbert – the former New York Times columnist now a senior fellow at Demos, a national policy center – introduced a report that suggested that America’s greatest invention is breaking down. The middle class is more than an income bracket, Herbert said. It’s a “grand bargain” among government, business and ordinary workers that if you work hard and play by the rules, you will earn a decent life for your family, and that will be good for the entire country. But for the first time in many decades, more people are falling out of the middle

class than are moving up into it. At the same time, the richest 1 percent of Americans have higher incomes than the entire middle class combined. Pennsylvania’s leaders are making foolhardy decisions that could make the slide permanent. For example, what used to be the passport to a comfortable life – a bachelor’s degree – is no longer the bedrock insurance that it used to be. Three out of four Pennsylvania graduates start out their careers with big debts – $27,066, the seventh highest in the country. Rebuilding the middle class requires rebuilding the infrastructure that made it possible, especially an affordable public university system. It’s a multiyear project that should start now with a pledge to restore the cuts in state university funding. Philadelphia Daily News

Voter identification laws undermine our democracy DEMOCRACY IN America is under attack. Politicians in dozens of states are turning back the clock by denying the vote to citizens. Photo ID requirements, shortened early voting periods, limits on poll worker assistance, proof of citizenship requirements, restrictions on same-day registration and disenfranchisement of former felons – all disproportionately deny voting rights to people of color, people with disabilities, students, low-income workers and seniors. Proponents of voter ID laws claim that voter fraud is commonplace, yet multiple studies have shown that the problem is essentially nonexistent. And anecdotal evidence held up by these politicians is consistently debunked as myth. Voter identification is a convenient euphemism for voter suppression. A full 11 percent of voters currently do not have ID. Most of them are seniors, people of color, people with disabilities, the poor and students. In fact, about one out of five nonwhite citizens and citizens over age 64 do not have government-issued ID. This is not about reducing fraud but part of a coordinated campaign of subtle intimidation intended to suppress the political will and empowerment of millions of Americans. Election reform is desperately needed, but instead of restricting the right to vote, we should be expanding it by implementing a

COMMENTARY WADE HENDERSON AND MARK PERRIELLO modern and accessible system for holding elections. There are more than 30 million Americans with disabilities of voting age, yet the Federal Election Commission reports that there are more than 20,000 inaccessible polling places. Some are located in basements or buildings without ramps, and others only offer machines that are outdated and unworkable for a person who is blind, deaf or physically impaired. Too many citizens with disabilities can only cast their vote curbside, or are denied the right to a secret ballot when they have to speak their vote out loud for someone else to mark down. If impediments were removed and people with disabilities began voting in the same proportion as other Americans, fully 3.2 million more people would be casting ballots. It is the duty of our policymakers to remove the barriers to participation for all citizens, including those with disabilities. Modernizing the system with automated registration, online access to records and

Election reform is desperately needed, but instead of restricting the right to vote, we should be expanding it by implementing a modern and accessible system for holding elections. accessible voting machines would allow more than 65 million eligible Americans to participate. Investing in a uniform, simplified process for voters would eliminate unnecessary bureaucratic processes, save states money and save election officials time. Right now, state legislators are instead committed to doing the opposite. Requiring photo ID and imposing other restrictions on the right to vote will not strengthen our democracy. It will serve only to exclude many American from participating in the important decisions that face us all as we work to create an America that is as good as its ideals.

Force Obama’s hand with Half-Trillion plan THE DEBT ceiling looms. Confusion reigns. Schemes abound. We are deep in a hole with, as of now, only three ways out: the McConnell plan, the G6 plan and the Half-Trillion plan. • The McConnell essentially punts the issue until after Election Day 2012. A good last resort if nothing else works. • The G6, proposed by the bipartisan Gang of Six senators, reduces 10-year debt by roughly $4 trillion. It has some advantages, even larger flaws. • The Half-Trillion raises the debt ceiling by that amount in return for an equal amount of spending cuts. At the current obscene rate of deficit spending – about $100 billion a month – it yields about five months respite before the debt ceiling is reached again. In my view, the Half-Trillion is best: It is clean, straightforward, yields real cuts, averts the current crisis and provides until year-end to negotiate a bigger deal. At the same time, it punctures President Obama’s thus far politically successful strategy of proposing nothing in public, nothing in writing, nothing with numbers, while leaking through a pliant press supposed offers of surpassing scope and reasonableness. As part of this pose, Obama had threatened to veto any short-term debt-ceiling hike. Which has become Obama’s most vulnerable point. Is the catastrophe of default preferable to a deal that gives us, say, five months to negotiate something more significant – because it doesn’t get Obama through Election Day? Which is why Obama is already in retreat. On Wednesday, press secretary Jay Carney showed the first crack by saying the president would accept an extension of a few days if needed to complete an already agreed upon long-term deal. Let the House pass the HalfTrillion. Dare him to put the United States into default because he deems a short-term deal insufficiently grand. After all, it dovetails perfectly with parts of the G6, for which the president has expressed support. The G6 conveniently comes in two parts. Part One puts immediately into effect, yes, a halftrillion dollars in cuts, including a more accurate inflation measure (that over time greatly reduces Social Security costs) and repeal of the CLASS Act (the lesser-known of the two new “Obamacare” entitlements, a fiscally ruinous, long-term care

COMMENTARY CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Ponzi scheme). Part Two of the G6 is far more problematic. It mandates six months of committee negotiations over the big ones – Medicare, Social Security, discretionary spending caps and tax reform. Unfortunately, the Medicare and Social Security parts are exceptionally weak – no mention of any structural change, such as raising the eligibility age to match longevity. As for the spending caps, I wouldn’t bet my dog’s food bowl on their durability. On tax reform, the G6 calls for eliminating deductions, credits, exclusions and exemptions to reduce rates across the board. The new tax rates – top individual rate between 23 percent and 29 percent – would bring us back to Reagan levels (28 percent). This would be a good outcome, but the numbers thus far are fuzzy and some are contradictory. In principle, however, if the vast majority of the revenue raised by closing loopholes goes to rate reduction, and if the vast majority of the net revenue raised comes from the increased economic activity spurred by lowering rates and eliminating inefficiency-inducing loopholes, the trade-off would be justified. What to do now? The House should immediately pass the Half-Trillion plan, thereby putting something eminently reasonable on the table that the president will have to address with a serious counterproposal using actual numbers. If the counterproposal is the G6, Republicans should accept Part One with its half-trillion dollars in cuts, CPI change and repeal of the CLASS Act, i.e., the part of the G6 that is enacted immediately and that is real. Accompany this with a dollar-for-dollar hike in the debt ceiling, yielding almost exactly the time envisioned in the G6 to work out grander spending and revenue changes – and defer any action on Part Two until precisely that time. The Half-Trillion with or without the G6 Part One: ceiling raised, crisis deferred, cuts enacted and time granted to work out any Grand Compromise. You can’t get more reasonable than that. Do it. And dare the president to veto it. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@charleskrauthammer.com.

As Borders fades, so does bookstore magic I STILL remember walking into the original Borders bookstore in Ann Arbor, Mich. It seemed to take up the entire block. “You gotta see this place!” a friend had gushed, and when we pulled open the doors, I knew what he meant. A symphony exploded in my head. This was 1985, a little more than a decade after Tom and Louis Borders, two brothers who were students at the University of Michigan, slapped together a used-book operation on the second floor of a building. Now, here on State Street, was this massive pantheon to the written works of the world. New books. Used books. Local authors. International authors. The classics. The arts. Politics. History. Miles of paperbacks. Endless aisles. As a young writer, you wandered through the place and said, “One day, maybe me ...” It was magic. Magic fades. Earlier this month I read that Borders was on the brink of liquidation.

The backlists of midlevel authors are not lucrative for the balance sheet. And the pressure for profits to keep the stock price high runs diametrically opposite to the slow, meandering, long-term customer approach that used to define bookstores. I have shopped in Borders, spoken in Borders, done Web programs with Borders, even met a series of Borders CEOs. These are good people who still, for the most part, love books. And for years, we in Michigan always considered it our backyard chain. But the world has changed. The printed word is gasping. A symphony doesn’t play anymore when you pull open a Borders door.

efore leaving our beautiful home on Crisman Street in Forty Fort we want to make some observations and offer some comments. A note of appreciation for all their efforts to Don Neely, Chooch Churnosky and John Rossick, the maintenance crew at Wyoming Valley West’s Durkee School building. Even though the building can use a bit of dressing up, the lawn, shrubs and flowers always are kept in tiptop condition. Thanks, guys. Their actions – along with all the residents on the street – help to make Crisman one of the finest streets in Forty Fort. Sincere gratitude to Gary Fronzoni, Terry Paul, Bob Downs and our son Don for

always being available when we needed them. We’re sure that our border collie Holly will miss all the wonderful people we met on our daily walks, especially the stops that always had treats. To Bea, Bill, Billy, Pam and Peg, we send much appreciation. In 55 years we’ve had our share of ups and downs and surely leave with many wonderful memories. We really have been blessed with wonderful, caring neighbors, and we will miss you all. Our parting wish is that all the neighbors will stop by and greet the new owners, welcoming them to the Crisman Street family. Joan and Tom Hudak Forty Fort

Recycling event a great success

O

n behalf of the Luzerne County commissioners and the Luzerne County Solid Waste Management Department, I thank you for your important contribution that made our 2011 electronics recycling program a huge success. This year, our June electronics collections in Butler and Hanover townships resulted in 541,609 pounds of electronic equipment collected from residents of 64 municipalities, seven schools and 16 entities that otherwise would have entered the waste stream, filling our landfills. The nine-year total of more than 3,681,000 pounds of electronics recycled by the people of Luzerne County is truly an environmental success!

The department would not have been able to conduct this successful program without financial support from commissioners and the state Department of Environmental Protection. Collaborating with the county to ensure the collections’ success were the Hanover Area School Board, administrators and maintenance supervisor, along with the Butler Township Board of Supervisors and fire department. The Luzerne County Association of Pennsylvania State Constables provided important traffic control. Participants in the Luzerne County Community Service Program and employees from Luzerne County Buildings and Grounds Department provided assistance that helped the program to succeed. The efforts of recycling are not limited to only our special collections. We remind everyone to do their part to reduce, reuse, recycle and buy recycled products. Our tire recycling collection will be held in October. Registration begins in September; registration information is mandatory prior to visiting the collection sites. In December we will be offering our annual telephone book recy-

cling collection program. Beth DeNardi Luzerne County recycling coordinator Wilkes-Barre

Former mayor a Good Samaritan

I

recently was run off the road and forced to jump a curb. In doing so, I bent my vehicle’s front wheel, which caused the tire to blow out. I pulled to the roadside and for 20 minutes tried to get the spare tire down from under the car. A Good Samaritan stopped to help but realized the cable was rusted, preventing us from getting the spare off. Rather than leave me, he took the spare from his car and put it on mine. He gave me a card with his cell phone number and said to call him when I was able to get a new tire. He would not accept any payment, so I would like to publicly thank who I later found out was the former mayor of Pittston, Mike Lombardo. What a great person. Frank Massara Wyoming

ADA compliance remains lacking

T

P

he news media report stories about people and organizations that break rules. Resolutions are reached; the guilty are punished. But what about those who consistently violate federal law without repercussions? These aren’t thugs or whitecollar criminals. They are

business owners who ignore the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Tuesday will mark the 21st anniversary of the law’s passage, yet Northeastern Pennsylvania still has many coffee shops, restaurants, bars, stores and other businesses that are not accessible to people with disabilities. The ADA requires them to remove barriers when readily achievable, meaning easily accomplished without much difficulty or expense. Examples include installing a ramp, creating accessible parking spaces and widening restroom doorways. The Northeast Pennsylvania Center for Independent Living advocates for barrier removal with businesses in 10 counties. We explain the law, provide technical assistance and point out that tax credits are available for those who create accessibility. This process results in sound business sense by enabling new customers to purchase goods and services. If you own the place everyone’s been talking about, look at the premises to determine if a potential customer with a disability could access your

food, merchandise or services. If not, contact the center. Compliance is the law and the right thing to do. Keith Williams Community organizer Northeast Pennsylvania Center for Independent Living Scranton

Budget process painfully ‘taxing’

O

n Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed its “Cut, Cap and Balance Plan.” This plan imposes a cap on federal spending and allows for an increase in the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion on the condition that the House and Senate approve a balanced budget amendment and send it to the states. To date, this is the only plan to raise the debt limit that has passed either chamber, and it is the only plan whose actual details have seen the light of day. With their claims of financial apocalypse approaching on Aug. 2, President Obama and the Democrats in both the House and the Senate have not published and publicly released a single plan. Instead,

they have offered empty rhetoric. Most recently, they invoked President Reagan and his calls to increase the debt ceiling in the 1980s. This is nothing more than recasting history in a way that I believe is designed to distract the American people from the modern reality. Today’s situation is far different from the 1980s. The U.S. government has piled up $14 trillion in debt. For more than 800 days, the Senate has failed to pass a budget. President Obama continues his calls for “compromise” and “shared sacrifice,” all while insisting on tax increases to fund spending – a philosophy that was roundly rejected at the polls last November and a manner of governance that President Reagan would not have endorsed. If we are going to invoke history, let’s at least get it right. Reagan only agreed to increase the debt in that instance provided the Democrats would agree to lower taxes. They agreed to do so, but reneged in the 11th hour, raising taxes anyway. Today, the sticking point for Democrats in both the budget

and the debt ceiling deals is again raising taxes on the American people. Simply stated, the Democrats will not agree to any Republican plan that doesn’t raise taxes. It seems the more things change, the more they stay the same. David A. Dzorek Swoyersville

Sunday hunting plan questioned

T

he majority of Pennsylvanians who hike, bike, jog through the woods, watch wildlife, photograph and connect with nature do so on Sundays. We deserve one day per week when we can enjoy the outdoors in relative quiet

without having to worry about our safety. A bill to make it legal to hunt on Sundays, H.B. 1760, will be considered in the Legislature and be voted on soon. More than 90 percent of Pennsylvanians do not hunt, yet hunters can monopolize outdoor opportunities disproportionate to their numbers. H.B. 1760 will create even greater imbalance among outdoor users. Traditionally, Sundays are a time for families to be together, relax at home, visit neighbors or attend religious/spiritual services, all while uninterrupted by gunshots or hunters seeking to track/ retrieve wounded or dead animals that crossed posted property lines. There is no reason to disrupt this custom. The state House Game and Fisheries Committee will hold hearings, limiting testimony only to groups and organizations, which will most likely be pro-hunting groups. Hence these hearings will become farces. Please ask you state representative to vote no on H.B. 1760. Silvie Pomicter Chinchilla

Dallas schools need evac plan

I

E

have questions for first responders, school administrators, school board members and parents of children attending the Dallas schools: Do you believe regular fire drills are necessary preparation for any kind of fire emergency in our schools? Do you believe in being prepared for other emergencies? For instance, do you read the emergency card when you are seated in an airplane? If your answer is “yes” to any of these, do you think our schools and community should be prepared for any kind of natural gas-related emergency? We are not prepared. Look in your phone book. There are instructions for where to go, what to take and which route to travel for an emergency at the Berwickarea nuclear plant. If you look for anything similar for our schools, you will realize that for three of the four schools on the Dallas campus there is one, two-lane road in and out of the campus. Can you picture the chaos that would ensue if parents were frightened for their children and rushed to school? There is a Girl Scout rule that tells us to be prepared. What would that mean for such an emergency? It would mean, first, building a one-way loop road out of the campus. The second step would be to plan an evacuation procedure of where to meet children to remove them from danger without hindering emergency vehicles. The third step would be to have regular evacuation drills so that the children and their parents would not be panicked, but would know where to go and what to do. That sort of planning would show true leadership and foresight. There should be no cost except for building that exit road, and that could be part of what gets done when those gas companies start building their metering stations.

Reader calls for increasing COLA

R

ecently I sent emails to U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta and U.S. Sen. Bob Casey asking them for their support to help correct the injustices that have been done to senior citizens and the needy for the past two years regarding costof-living adjustments. We don’t need any more excuses about why there hasn’t been an increase due to the outdated formula for calculating the COLA. During the first two years of President Obama’s administration, with the Democratic-controlled House and Senate, they could have passed any bill without the input of the Republicans, and they did: Wall Street bailouts, automotive industry financial packages and, of course, “ObamaCare.” Why wasn’t the formula changed when the opportunity existed to help take care of the very citizens who needed help the most? Recently, President Obama said that he couldn’t guarantee payment to Social Security recipients, Medicare, Medicaid and the vets if the nation goes into default. This is a new low even for President Obama, but should not come as a surprise considering that this president, in his State of

the Union address two years ago, looked straight into the television cameras and told the nation, I will not forget you ... with regards to COLA. After two years, he finally has remembered the American senior citizens, but only to be used as pawns for his scare tactics. Now that Obama has remembered that there are still American senior citizens and the needy, maybe, just maybe, he’ll remember his promise. With the new Congress and new speaker of the House, maybe Obama won’t have as much of a problem remembering the American elderly and their needs. Louis Kern Pittston

Climate change column disputed

W

illiam A. Levinson’s commentary is full of crap when it asserts that manmade global warming is not real (“Carbon agenda siphons resources from real dangers,” July 16), and any concern about it is dismissed as “alarmism.” Denial of anthropogenic global warming is a propaganda scam orchestrated by “free market” (read corporatist) think tanks funded by the fossil fuel industry working in coordination with conservative media outlets such as Fox News and most talk radio. And there are politicians who toe the “skeptic” line due to campaign contributions from Big Oil and King Coal, and they sometimes also own stock in those companies. Assuming that since climate has changed before due to

natural causes, therefore the current warming must be natural is fallacious, because climate reacts to whatever it is forcing it to react – in this case, human activities are the dominant force. For starters, the sun is not responsible for the warming over the last 35 years because satellite measurements show a rather slight dimming. Levinson apparently has an ideological ax to grind with a basic fact of physics: that carbon dioxide is a heat-trapping gas that stays in the atmosphere for lengthy periods and builds up due to man’s constant burning of fossil fuels. And to continue with business as usual is suicidal madness. Despite the brandishing of bogus petitions by deniers, about 97 percent of climate scientists and 84 percent of scientists overall accept the reality of anthropogenic climate change. Dogmatic deniers of climate change, and their financial and political backers such as the Koch brothers, can go on playing with fire in the hope that they will not get burned. But in the end, they will burn with the rest of us as a result of the hell on Earth they created by their reckless disregard of the planet in their greedy, short-term pursuit of profits. Jerome N. Cragle Mifflinville

Visas granted despite economy

T

he government of the United States was once run by the people. That is how it was intended. Today, the national government is so big, and the leaders are so brash, that in many ways they do whatever they want, and we the people can go to … well, you know where. Why would the U.S. government grant more than 1.1 million temporary work visas last year to foreign nationals with more than that scheduled for this year? Why would the government grant more than a

million permanent residence documents (green cards) last year with even more to come? A green card is an official document issued by the U.S. government to aliens, allowing them to have residency and to work legally in the United States. During a debilitating economic downturn, why would a government of the people, with almost 20 percent of its citizens unemployed, grant more than 2 million work permits to foreign nationals each year? In more than two years, the White House can credit without dispute something less than 800,000 new jobs. What if we simply did not give the 2 million foreigners each year the jobs that once were held by Americans? Clearly that would help our employment picture. However, the employees of this government do not work for the people. They work for the politicians whose only goal is re-election. Brian W. Kelly Wilkes-Barre

Homeless need hand, not handout

I

wanted to respond to Mark Guydish’s commentary “The word on the street: The Valley has lost its heart” (July 11). I thought at first Guydish was being serious. I was prepared to write a rebuttal until, of course, I reached the end of the commentary. Very profound, to say the least, and perfectly written. I have been employed by a homeless shelter for nearly six years. My primary duties include housing homeless families and modeling for them the skills necessary to be productive members of society – with the goal of obtaining and maintaining permanent housing and greater self-determination. While these families reside in our program, it is their responsibility to maintain sobriety with the proper as-

sistance (if sobriety previously had been an issue), obtain and maintain employment or further education, save 70 percent of any and all income, pass room inspections, participate in classes we offer (classes such as parenting, budgeting, nutrition), and seek and maintain counseling services for any help with barriers the families face. Our program is very structured and demanding, and our success rate is fortunately rather high. We meet families every day who wake up and want to address their issues and succeed in this life. I understand the tongue-incheek remarks in the commentary. I understand that, unfortunately in this society, it seems to be the mindset that homeless people are similar to what was described in the commentary: inadequate beggars who chose to be on the streets. In my years of experience as a case worker, I beg to differ. Each person has a story and, pragmatically, some stories have led the storytellers to places they did not choose to be. I have sat on the other side of the desk for six years and I have heard some things that truly have changed my life – stories that include mental illness, rape, addiction, loss, deep sorrow and pain that cannot be explained or erased with words. Not every homeless person you see is where he or she is by choice. In fact, I might go one step further to say none of them is where they are by choice. Some people might imply that I am an enabler or a Band-Aid for the population I serve. However, what is far more imperative to me is that because I was awarded health, sound mind, vigor, common sense, toughness, prudence and everything else that might be found necessary by anyone wandering along the path of life, I shall share these gifts as well as my heart with others who can use a hand, rather than a hand out.

COLBERT Continued from Page 1E

er donations, is $3.5 million. Simply defined, though, the Colbert Bump is a megaphone of influence, shouted by a comedian with a keen ethical compass who plays a blowhard with no ethical compass and hopes the audience gets the difference. It began as a kind of joke — in the sense that Colbert, the host, would bluster on about the “bump” his show gave anyone or anything appearing on it. However, the Bump has become anything but a joke — in the sense that the political, philanthropic and social ramifications of Colbert and his sway over his audience have grown remarkable, touching on a dizzying range of subjects both silly and serious. “I love my brother, but I probably wouldn’t have driven out here if it wasn’t for (Colbert) being here,” Sam Engstrom, of Washington, D.C., said last month at Northwestern University, where Colbert, an alum, delivered the commencement speech. In the spring, Colbert and Jimmy Fallon promised to perform Black’s infamous hit, “Friday,” if the Colbert Nation raised at least $26,000 for the charity Donors Choose. Done. In June, Colbert asked the FEC if he could create an organization to solicit funds for campaign advertising. “All I’m trying to do is affect the 2012 election,” he told Trevor Potter, a former FEC chairman (now Colbert’s lawyer), during an episode of the show. “It’s not like I’m trying to install iTunes.” Done. When Colbert broke his wrist in 2007 and began selling $5 rubber “Wriststrong” bracelets (in recognition of “wrist violence”), proceeds went to the Yellow Ribbon Fund, which assists injured service members. The show raised $171,000 in a few months — and through eBay auctions of props from the set and additional sources (including proceeds from “AmeriCone Dream,” the Colbert-branded flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream) since has brought the total to $350,000 for the organization. As Mark Robbins, the director of Yellow Ribbon, said: “People don’t realize (Colbert) is like a conduit to money for charities. He’s raised our visibility beyond anything we had expected. Now I get random checks from people — ‘Here’s $10 in honor of Stephen’s birthday.’ No kidding.” Indeed, a few days after Colbert asked viewers to donate to U.S. Speedskating, the show raised $202,000 through its website; soon after, its logo was stitched onto the team’s uniforms. By January, it had raised $300,000. “That one man can have so much influence over an audience is fascinating,” said Katherine Reutter, the speedskater who went on to win two medals at the 2010 Winter Olympics. She said that the Colbert Nation “is not really supporting speedskating anymore, but the boost he gave us helped us create Speedskater Nation (a website to solicit donations). None of us even knew Stephen. You wouldn’t necessarily expect that he’s out to do good in this world. But I felt that. When you go on the show, they give you a basket backstage and inside is a $100 gift card to the charity of your choice. That’s real decency.” The Bump, however, is not solely warm and fuzzy. In fact, though it has been a good summer for the Bump, the Bump is not necessarily something you want. A few weeks ago, after Colbert mocked “Terry the Fracosau-

CONNOR Continued from Page 1E

Maine’s “official state dessert” amused us. Then, you had the audacity to actually bestow that distinction on blueberry pie, while surreptitiously declaring whoopie pie your official state treat. “Heresy, plain and simple. “The Amish of Pennsylvania concocted the recipe for ‘gobs,’ or whoopie pies, as assuredly as Ben Franklin invented the Franklin stove. We call on good Americans everywhere to flatly reject Maine’s revisionist confectionary history.” There was more but you get the idea. Sarcastic. Condescending. After bragging a bit about several people and things with

rus,” the hard hat-wearing, prodrilling dinosaur mascot of Canada-based natural gas provider Talisman Energy, the character disappeared from the company’s website. And in June, after Sarah Palin supporters reportedly altered a Wikipedia page for Paul Revere to reflect her widely quoted remarks about the Revolutionary War figure, Colbert asked his viewers to change Wikipedia’s entry for “bell” to also reflect her comments. A minute later, it read: “Used by Paul Revere to warn the British that hey, you’re not going to succeed in taking our guns.” On the political side, there are the many implications of the Colbert SuperPAC, the organization that the FEC approved and Colbert plans to use to promote or oppose political candidates during the 2012 presidential election. Its specific implications are debatable, though that’s probably Colbert’s intention. Regardless of what his PAC means, however, the line between Colbert the satirist and Colbert the advocate has grown increasingly thin, said Sophia McClennen, a professor of comparative literature at Penn State who has a book about Colbert’s influence, “America According To Colbert,” coming this fall. “Someone with a massive fan base who can get them to do whatever they want is not what anyone wants to see in a healthy democracy. But I think he has a knack for choosing causes that are meaningful and causes that are silly, and, more importantly, he has the faith in the audience to understand the difference — and the larger lesson. “I think his playing a right-wing blowhard character, balancing it with a reality — that’s not new,” she added. “But Colbert is offering us a new definition of what it means to be a public intellectual, which is about amusing ourselves to activism.” Dick Gregory, the legendary political activist and comedian, couldn’t agree more: “He works for this generation because he knows its cadences, its lingo. If I wanted young people to read the Bible, I’d want a rap group to deliver it, then kids would know it better than preachers. Colbert gets this, but I wonder if he knows how powerful he is, that (he and Jon Stewart) are in position to determine policy! I think I first realized that when they did that rally.” He was referring to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, which drew an estimated 250,000 to the Mall in Washington in October. It was activism without a cause. Or, as a sign there read: “Vague But Awesome.” Said Jonathan Alter, a former Newsweek columnist who is good friends with Colbert (and whose wife is a “Colbert Report” producer): “I think Stephen doesn’t really believe in ever being explicit about his intentions. ... He kind of had to be explicit at the end of his Congressional testimony in support of farmworkers (conducted in character, before a House subcommittee on immigration). That didn’t go the way he wanted. He was ironic and the committee was not laughing. He’s left of center and admits this, but he’s not in it to advance an ideology. He’s a fake newsman, but he shows how things work and the way things don’t work, and I think he’s turned into a real journalist. “Also, to say he doesn’t resemble his character in real life is a gross understatement. Satire always comes out of idealism, and to be a great satirist, you need to be an idealist. One does not work without the other.”

IF YOU GO

By MARY THERESE BIEBEL mbiebel@timesleader.com

NEW YORK — Here’s my advice: If you trek to New York and shell out for a ticket to “SpiderMan: Turn Off the Dark,” grab a seat in the dress circle. Sometimes that’s called the mezzanine and sometimes the first balcony. For this show it’s called the Flying Circle for the simple reason that it offers the best view of the truly spectacular flying effects, including the climactic airborne battle between Spidey and the Green Goblin. The final IF YOU GO confrontation was imWhat: “Spiderpressive Man: Turn Off the Dark” enough for a Where: Foxwoods near-capaciTheatre in New ty audience York Tickets: $76.50 to to roar its approval re$314 at Ticketmascently at the ter.com or 800745-3000 Foxwoods Note: “SpiderTheatre. But Man” was a hot then this ticket from its crowd previews and aproared its apparently will reproval for a main so. lot of what went on in this already legendary show. To put it mildly, I’ve never seen anything like it, in a Broadway house or anywhere else. The show, whose troubled history has been exhaustively documented by the New York press, is a strange hybrid that combines elements of conventional Broadway musicals, themepark rides and Cirque du Soleil razzle-dazzle. The creators pursue serious artistic ambitions while dishing up spectacle designed to get the same sort of response as if you woke up one morning and saw a mastodon grazing in your backyard. At first glance you wouldn’t believe your eyes, but you couldn’t wait to tell your friends about it. This is a series of impressions, a gut reaction, an accounting of what I saw and heard from my seat at the biggest, fattest and most expensive Broadway musical of all time. We don’t really need to go over the show’s troubled history — the cast injuries, technical problems and the departure of director Julie Taymor, who helped write the book and developed the piece from its inception. What matters now is what the show is. Much to my amazement, what it is is vastly entertaining. Yes, it’s an example of bloated excess and insists on seeking meaning in the fantasy adventures of a character created almost 50 years ago for comic books printed on cheap pulp. But the show in performance answers a question I’ve heard repeatedly: How on earth could you spend $65 million on a Broadway musical? The answer is simple: By doing things in a theater that nobody in his or her right mind has ever attempted. Like all the flying. Like having maybe a half-dozen performers play the title character at different times. Like George Tsypin’s brilliant, forced-perspective scenic design that emulates the art of Marvel comic books. And Eiko Ishioka’s mind-blowing costumes that seem to bring the Sinister Six — Carnage, Electro, Swiss Miss, et al — to life in three dimensions. This is a show with a thousand moving parts. All of which might suggest that this is a show swallowed up by special effects. But strangely enough, it also happens to be an actor’s show. Reeve Carney, who plays Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man) is a charming performer with a terrific rock voice. But the real star of the show is Patrick Page, who seems to be having the time of his life as scientist Norman Osborn, who becomes the Green Goblin. Page is an accomplished stage actor — he appeared at what was

feel it’s like a death sentence,” said Gail Jones, 53, of Wilkes-Barre, one of two dozen artists whose work is on display at the exhibit. “But then you move ahead and look for hope,” she

said as she mingled with guests during the exhibit’s recent opening reception. A survivor of uterine cancer, Jones is enthusiastic about taking part in the show at the Schulman Gallery, where 30 percent of any sale will be donated to The Center for Cancer Wellness, Candy’s Place. Candy’s Place is a resource center for people with cancer and their loved ones. Jones also wants people to take comfort from her close-up photos of pink morning glories, a pink rose, pink phlox and other flowers from her garden as well as the message she inscribed on one of them: “Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.” See PINK, Page 4F

Kelly Olszyk, curator of the Pink Ribbon exhibit at the Schulman Gallery, puts the finishing touches on the display in time for the opening reception. Bernadette Harrison’s ‘Tomato’ (top right) and Jenna Bauer’s ‘Still Life With Oranges’ (bottom right) are two of close to 60 pieces in the exhibit.

Summer lets you catch up on TV you missed By GAIL PENNINGTON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

TV viewers can be forgiven for dragging their feet about committing to a new series. These days, that’s simply self-protection; most new shows don’t even last a full season, and getting attached to one only to have it disappear never stops being frustrating. But what if you held back from sampling a show that sounded interesting, even while others talked it up, and now that show has been renewed for fall? Or what if several shows you wanted to watch all aired in the same time slot, and you couldn’t keep up with them all? Summer is your chance to catch up, even if that might not be as easy as sitting back and waiting for reruns.

AP PHOTO

Scott Caan plays Detective Danny ’Danno’ Williams in ’Hawaii Five-0.’

With an abundance of first-run shows on the air this summer, reruns don’t have the built-in audience they did just two decades

ago. CBS still reliably repeats most of its shows, because its brand of comedies and procedural dramas do well in second airings. The CW smartly started all its dramas over from the beginning this summer. Some shows will air in reruns on the other broadcast networks, but others either won’t be repeated at all or aren’t on the air now but might come back in repeats later. Adding to the summer confusion is the fact that some canceled shows are still airing in repeats. Here’s a look at some shows you might have missed during the TV season that just ended, all of which will return with new episodes in the fall, and some reasons to start watching them now. “Hawaii Five-0,” CBS

Airs this fall: 10 p.m. Mondays Watch now: At 10 p.m. Mondays, at CBS.com or at Hulu.com (five episodes) CBS’ top-rated new drama of last season is also an international hit and already has been sold into syndication on TNT for 2014, so expect it to be around a while. If its mix of over-the-top action with banter and beaches seemed a bit much for fall, maybe the pretty people (Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim) and even prettier scenery will make it a better fit for summer. “Raising Hope,” Fox Airs this fall: 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays Watch now: At 9 p.m. Tuesdays, at Fox.com or at Hulu.com (full season) How did you miss this adorable

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is difficult to follow a map if you do not know which way is north. You have to orient yourself first in order to correctly follow the directions. Today is for getting emotionally oriented and ready for the week to come. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even the mild mannered people around you will have an edge to them now. And while there may be negative aspects to your dealings, the positive aspects will far outweigh them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will become more fully aware of the freedoms your society allows. This awareness could come about as you learn of those far less fortunate and significantly more restricted. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your self-improvement will occur naturally. Therefore, you needn’t make a special effort to overcome negative habits and refine your character. As you move toward what you enjoy, the transformation will be automatic. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is such a thing as premature organization. It happens when you make a plan before you have all the information. So hold off. There will be more relevant factors to take into account tonight. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Loved ones need you to help them solve problems. You bring a flexible approach to the situation. You will be intuitive, spontaneous and playful to a point — then you get suddenly serious and thorough. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life indoors will be manageable and predictable, which is precisely why you need to get outside. Besides, like other living things, you need sunshine to grow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Resolve to keep going until you arrive at the destination. You will make mistakes in your quest, but don’t put too much focus on them. When you head in the wrong direction, make a U-turn. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have nothing against the ones who sleep and watch TV while you work. To each his own. But as for you, you never tire of being useful. You will keep producing well into the night. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are a rebel at heart and will see many reasons not to go along with the “program.” And though people around you may seem to have no problem with compliance, as soon as you rebel, others will do the same. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may feel limited in your ability to express yourself or further your purposes. Exercise your freedom of thought, and your environment will shift to externally liberate you, as well. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is no benefit to bullying yourself. So instead of being upset and angry that you don’t always do as you mean to do, breathe and relax. Try to be inwardly gentle, supportive and friendly. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 24). There will be many sights you will see for the first time. Your enjoyment will be enhanced by the presence of younger people. You’ll speak your mind in August and set a record straight. A festive event in November is a chance to share your talent. You’ll earn more than you planned to in December and will share the wealth. Libra and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 42, 30 and 15.

Mom’s open door policies make her an easy target Dear Abby: At age 60 my mother ignores basic safety rules. She drives her older model car with the doors unlocked. I have tried explaining that she’s making it easy for a carjacker to gain entry, but she insists “that won’t happen to me.” Mom walks her dog alone at night and leaves her front door unlocked, claiming, “If anyone tried to get in, I’d see them.” Not true. She goes for long walks, and while she’s walking, she chats on her cell phone, completely oblivious to what’s going on around her. She nailed a key ring with the key to her back door (labeled as such) outside next to the door. Anyone could scale the short fence and walk right in. She also leaves the key to her front door under the mat on her front porch for anyone to find. Mom makes me crazy with worry. I don’t know if she’s aware of the risks she’s taking. I have begged her to lock her door and hide the keys, but she says I am “paranoid” and that nothing could ever happen. Now she has bought a gun and claims it will keep her safe. I say it’s better to exercise common sense and prevent the break-in and possible assault in the first

While most of the artists who contributed to the exhibit are women, there are a few men, including sculptor David Green, 62, of Harveys Lake, who put several three-dimensional representations of the female form on display.

ics who reviewed the show early, but I have to say this score includes some of the most effective songs I’ve encountered in a rock musical. There are times when Carney is in full voice that you can close your eyes and easily imagine Bono singing these tunes. I can say this: All the music, projections, lighting effects, aerial stunts, trap doors and elevators conspired to create images in this writer’s memory that won’t fade away anytime soon.

Does he have any message for women who might be struggling with the reality of losing a breast to cancer? “As far as a woman’s energy, power and the respect she deserves in the world, it doesn’t have anything to do with having one breast or two,” he said. “That has nothing to do with her power as a person.”

At one point he even utters the words so often spoken by real newspaper journalists in the age of the Internet and the 24/7 news cycle: “We’re dinosaurs!” Philip Wm.

Noting one image of a raindrop-studded flower is especially striking, she said, “It reminds me of the tears of women who are facing this shocking news (of a cancer diagnosis), and the tears of children who lose their mothers or grandmothers to this horrible disease. “But it also reminds me of the tears of refreshing rain, and the hope that you can be cleansed.” One woman who appears to be celebrating that kind of victory is the joyful figure depicted in “I’m Free Now in Blue,” a print by Alison Schmidt. Actually, Schmidt said, her model was “a woman who had battled a drug addiction. She was a recovering person. This is a celebration of her freedom and her newfound life.” But a woman who battles cancer might experience a similar celebration, the artist said. “A couple women in my life

Hitchcockian feeling that something bad is about to happen. And eventually it does, though some readers may get impatient and feel it takes a little too long to take place. And it’s all a result of what camp nurse Harriet Foster, who serves almost as the conscience of the novel, calls terrible decisions that lead inevitably one from another until finally the entire situation gets away from those in charge. Then, the action shifts forward15 years, to St. Louis in 2011, where Dalton introduces more surprises, and readers may find that what they thought they understood about the novel may not precisely be true.

Porn king Larry Flynt book bares politicians’ scandalous lives By HOWARD GENSLER Philadelphia Daily News

PHILADELPHIA — Weary of sex scandals that have rocked all portions of our government in recent years, there’s a lot of talk on the campaign trail about getting back to the principles of our nation’s Founding Fathers. That sentiment may change if people read the new book, “One Nation Under Sex,” by Larry Flynt and historian David Eisenbach, because men such as Ben Franklin, Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson would make Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer and Arnold Schwarzenegger seem like choirboys, and the partisan press of their era would make the tabloids of today read like children’s books. Flynt and Eisenbach, however, are not simply concerned about getting under the covers, or hiding in the closets, of the White House. Their book deals with how the private lives of politicians have affected the nation’s public policies — how Franklin’s womanizing helped the colonists gain

the support of France, how President James Buchanan’s alleged homosexuality helped bring about the Civil War, how Franklin Roosevelt’s affair(s) forced shy wife Eleanor out of her shell to become one of the great first ladies. Of course, there are whole chapters on Clinton and the Kennedys (according to the authors, John Kennedy said that he would get migraines if he didn’t have sex withdifferentwomen;brotherBobby Kennedy had an affair with Jackie after the president’s death; and Mary Jo Kopechne, who died in brother Ted Kennedy’s car at Chappaquiddick, had previously been Bobby’s mistress). Flynt, the well-known pornographer and activist, said in an interview earlier this month that he’s always been interested in politics and that when he was talking with his publisher about a book on the sub-

ject, the publisher “suggested I do it in a historical context.” He found a kindred spirit in Eisenbach, a Columbia University professor, who created and hosted the History Channel program “The Beltway Unbuckled.” During the early days of the country, the press played an active role going after politicians (the newspapersofthedaygenerallywereinthe pocketofonesideortheother),but after a while such unseemly gossipmongering gave way to the press protecting presidents (and athletes, movie stars, etc.). Everyone in the White House press corps knew who was having affairs — they just kept quiet. These days, it’s again open season. But such behavior has been going on forever with powerful men — “They have huge egos and need to be fed by sexual con-

quest,” Flynt said — and voters would be silly to think it’s ever going to stop. Or that it should. “Americans need to adopt one simple rule,” the authors write. “Don’t trust anyone who dedicates his or her life to stomping out other people’s consensual sexual activities — it is pretty much guaranteedthatlurkingbehindalltheantisex zealotry are deep-seated sexual issues.” That’s why former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover also gets his own chapter. Does it matter that Lincoln may have been gay, the book asks. “He was probably one of our best presidents,” Flynt said. And Eisenbach added that Eleanor Roosevelt “was not diminished by being a lesbian.” Hoover’s closeted homosexuality, however, led to a reign of terror on the sex lives of countless politicians — gay and straight. And President Buchanan, whom the book alleges had a 32-year affair with Alabama Sen. William Rufus King, “is one of the great villains of history,” according to Eisenbach.

How could a president have a gay affair in the 1850s and it remain unreported? “Homosexuality at the time was literally unspeakable,” Eisenbach said. He added that having politicians’ sex lives out in the open would make for a much healthier debate. “It’s absolutely asinine,” Eisenbach said, “that a dalliance could hijack political discussion.” Besides, he added, “The coverup is always worse than the crime. It’s impossible to recover your credibility.” The book makes its case that powerful people go after what they want,and the restof usmight as well expect that and move on. The more that politicians repress their sexual instincts, the book alleges, the more troubling their decision-making often becomes. But don’t expect the nation to give up its fascination with sex scandals any time soon. “It’s like a car crash,” Flynt said. “Everyone wants to stop and look. When it comes to sex scandals, everyone wants to know more.”

Vermont’s secret hot spots Swimming holes dot state, offer cool-off spots - if you find them

W

By JOHN CURRAN The Associated Press

ARREN, Vt. — In the only New England state without an Atlantic Ocean coastline, there are no ocean waves to bodysurf, no outdoor water parks to splash in. But Vermont has no shortage of places to cool off: When summer’s heat settles in, people head to the countryside to cool off in old-fashioned swimming holes that dot the state’s rivers and streams. the water’s cold, with only one safe spot to jump from, but the quick and easy access from Notch Brook Road, down a stone staircase, makes it a nice spot for a quick dip. At swimming holes with waterfalls, fast-moving water or jumping, danger is never far away — but help can be. Vermont’s most notorious swimming hole is Huntington Gorge, a swirling maze of waterfalls, ledges and pools that’s so treacherous it has a sign posted next to it listing the names, ages and year of death of the 20 people who’ve perished there through the decades. Less dangerous locations can still have hazards. Among the safety precautions recommended: Avoid swift-moving water swollen by recent rains, which can cause dangerous currents. Check for water depth, underwater ledges or other unseen hazards before jumping or diving in, since conditions can change. Consider wearing water shoes or other footwear you can wear in the water, since most swimming areas have rocky beaches and rocky river bottoms. With most Vermont swimming holes, getting there is half the fun — and a big challenge. There are no road signs to them, no simple directions unless you know the local landmarks. Sometimes, friendly gas station attendants, town officials or general store clerks will direct you. The digital era has made a little easier. Hajdasz’s SwimmingHoles.org site lists 1,000 swimming holes in the U.S. and Canada — broken down by state — providing photos, directions and other information about swimming areas, including 89 in Vermont. But those who prize their outof-the-way paradises aren’t eager to tell the world about them. Like parents unwilling to part with the telephone number of a favorite baby sitter, they don’t want to spoil a good thing. “I’ll tell you what my favorite spot is,” said Genay Cohen, 26, of Burlington, who swears by a swimming hole in Johnson called Journey’s End. “But you won’t find it,” she added, “and the locals won’t tell you where it is.”

Though there are no ocean waves to bodysurf in land-locked Vermont, there’s no shortage of places to swim: When summers heat settles in, folks head to old-fashioned swimming holes.

A youngster plays with his dog at ’Big Rock.’ Some of the swimming holes in Vermont, ‘Big Rock’ in particular, are more child and pet friendly than others.

VERMONT SWIMMING HOLES 89 of the state’s swimming holes are listed at http://www.swimmingholes.org. Here are three worth checking out: • WARREN FALLS: Green Mountain National Forest, Warren, Vt. Take Route 100 south from the village of Warren, look for small parking area on the right side of road about 1 mile south of village. A breathtaking gorge with three pools and more than a half-dozen places to jump from ranging from about 6 feet to about 50 feet, Warren Falls is a must-see for thrill-seekers but has almost no place to sit, sunbathe or put down a beach chair. • KENNETH WARD RECREATION AREA, aka BIG ROCK: Moretown, Vt. Take Route 100B south from Interstate 89 in Middlesex, go four miles to sign and parking area on left. With its wide rocky beach, shallow slow-moving Mad River water and variety of rocks and boulders to jump from, “Big Rock” is a favorite for families with small children and dogs.

A woman dives off a bolder in the swimming hole known as ‘Big Rock.’

• FOSTER’S: Stowe, Vt. Take Route 108 north from village of Stowe, go 5 miles up, turn right at Notch Brook Road. Swimming area is threetenths of a mile up, on your left. Small, secluded and with limited sun exposure because of towering trees that surround it, Foster’s is preferred by locals and anyone who doesn’t mind a little nip in their dip, with colder-than-most water temperatures. Flat rocks at one end are OK for lounging, but no beach area.

Clean and free, these hidden gems offer emerald-green water, boulders or rope swings to jump from and breathtakingly beautiful natural vistas. They’re also so numerous (and often so hard to find unless you’re a local) that they rarely become crowded. “It just offers people the opportunity to go out and explore these places and make them your own,” said Dave Hajdasz, webmaster for New England states for www.swimmingholes.org, a website that maintains a state-bystate listing. “You can go to a swimming hole and often there’s nobody there. Everybody has this fantasy of finding this bucolic place with a waterfall, so there’s that kind of romanticism. There are no rules. There is no help. But people like that danger, they like that freedom. You just go to swim.” Among Vermont’s most popular is Warren Falls, a spectacular gorge with waterfalls that cascade into pools for swimming and cliff jumping that’s located on Green Mountain National Forest land, in Warren. It’s easy to miss. It’s on Route 100 south of the village of Warren, and is unmarked, with just a pull-off parking area and no signs to direct you.

My kitchen is modern with oak cabinets, ceramic tile backsplash, and a built in table. My laundry room is on the first floor with a powder room. My master bath is ceramic tile with granite vanity and walk in linen closet. I have nice closets, ceiling fans, and my gas furnace works great. My wrap porch is lovely to hang out on, and I have a sweet side yard that is fenced with flowering bushes and hedges for privacy. My full attic has wood flooring, my walls have been repainted and some have crown molding. I still have my original stained glass front window. My neighbors are Wyoming Valley Mall, Home Depot, and Holy Savior Church. My owner needs to move to a smaller house, so I am priced below market. I am pretty and clean and ready to move into.
