Congressional Budget Office says Boehner’s plan would cut less than he vowed

Leaders postponed a planned vote today in the House Michael Steel, a Boehner spokesman, said the speaker is reworking his plan. It was undetermined when a vote on the revamped plan will occur. “We’re here to change Washington — no more smoke and mirrors, no more ’phantom cuts,’” Steel said. “We promised that we will cut spending more than we increase the debt limit — with no tax hikes — and we will keep that promise.” In the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid forged ahead with his

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner was rewriting his plan to cut federal spending and raise the debt ceiling Tuesday night after the Congressional Budget Office revealed that his bill wouldn’t cut as much spending as he’d promised it would. The nonpartisan CBO determined that Boehner’s plan would cut spending by $850 billion over the next decade, less than the $1.2 trillion promised in the bill. Boehner’s plan was already struggling to gain enough votes among Republican members. See DEBT, Page 7A

CEO gets grant to help at-risk vets Money from Department of Veterans Affairs will help fend of homelessness in area.

By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

An organization serving the poor of Luzerne County will soon receive a $360,000 federal grant to help keep low-income veterans off the streets. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs awarded the oneyear grant to the Commission on Economic Opportunity to support low-income veterans in danger of homelessness, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, announced Tuesday. Noel Duffy, Director of Special Projects for CEO, said the funding will help provide outreach services to assist lowincome veterans in obtaining Veterans Administration and other public benefits available

to them. CEO can also provide temporary financial assistance to help veteran’s at risk of losing housing stay in their homes and transportation assistance to help them obtain housing or find work. Duffy said CEO can use the grant to help up to 120 veteran families living in the coverage area of the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center. The program is also open to veterans receiving treatment at the center, Duffy said. “We’re very happy to be able to offer this resource to veterans and their families,” Duffy said. “They have a resource… They need to know that especially at a time of potential veterans’ cutbacks we have a resource to help.”According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, a person must meet three criteria to qualify for aid through the program: • They must be a member

of a veteran family, defined as a single person or a family in which the head of household or the spouse of the head of household is a veteran. • They must be very lowincome, defined as living on a household income that does not exceed 50 percent of area median income. In Luzerne County the median household income was $39,984 in 2009, according to U.S. Census data. • They must be residing in permanent housing, be homeless and scheduled to become a resident of permanent housing within 90 days or have ex-

ited permanent housing within the previous 90 days to seek other housing. The grant comes at a time when other area services for the homeless have had trouble securing funding. REACH, a drop-in center that for nearly 10 years provided the homeless showers, a mailing address and use of a telephone at St. Stephan’s Episcopal Church in WilkesBarre, shut its doors July 1 after losing an $18,500 state grant. Mother Teresa’s Haven, a homeless shelter hosted by various area churches and agencies formerly known as VISION, has also struggled with escalating costs, including the cost of transporting the homeless from shelter to shelter, Monsignor Joseph Kelly, diocesan executive director of Catholic Social Services, said in June.

Plymouth Twp. panel presents proposed charter Charter requires shorter supervisor terms, CPA for audits, referendum option. By WILLIAM BELL Times Leader Correspondent

PLYMOUTH TWP. – The Plymouth Township Government Study Commission presented its report and a recommended home rule charter at a public hearing Tuesday night. Commission Chairman Edward Nowak said the purpose of the hearing was to update the township supervisors, answer any questions they might have, and seek public input. Nowak briefly reviewed the drafted home rule charter. It is also available at local libraries and the websites of the Pennsylvania Economy League, which served as consultant to the commission, and the NEPA Alliance, the township’s Act 47/ distressed community consultant. The proposed charter is based on the current Second Class Township Code with a number

of changes and additions to specifically fit the needs of Plymouth Township. Some of the major items in the charter include: • The term of office for the supervisors would change to four years from the current six years, and it would be phased in as current supervisors’ terms end. • It would be incompatible for a supervisor to be employed as an employee of the Township. The current code allows second class township supervisors to work for the township. • The positions of elected auditors would be eliminated, and they would be replaced with an appointed certified public accountant who would perform a yearly audit. As with the supervisors’ terms, this change would be phased in with the ending of the current elected auditors’ terms. However, the requirement for the CPA audit would begin in the first year. • A position of township administrator would be formalized. The position would have requirements such as a four-year

degree and experience. The township currently has a manager, but this would formalize the position of administrator and his or her role. • The proposed charter provides flexibility to the township as to the type and method of tax collection. However, it does impose a maximum 108 percent cap on revenue over the previous year’s total. Should the supervisors decide that a tax increase is required, they are limited to a maximum increase by this provision. If an emergency or unforeseen situation should occur that would require more of an increase, the township can petition the courts for an increase. • The charter adds an initiative and referendum options for the public. The public by petition initiative can force an item onto the supervisors’ agenda for action. They may also petition to have an item placed on the ballot as a referendum to reverse any action of the supervisors. • The charter provides an administrative code for the township. This administrative code

HAZLETON – A woman was arraigned Tuesday on charges she stabbed her boyfriend in the arm during an argument about a cigarette. Police said Kenneth Joseph Pahler, 40, of North Wyoming Street, Hazleton, was treated at Hazleton General Hospital for a stab wound to his upper left arm and a laceration to his right shoulder.

him and asking for a cigarette at about 11:50 p.m. Pahler claimed Cusate became more enraged when he refused to get out of bed to get her a cigarette. Police said in the criminal complaint that Pahler reported Cusate got a kitchen knife and attacked him and that Pahler ran out of their apartment after he was stabbed. Cusate told police Pahler was hitting her and she stabbed him in self-defense, the criminal complaint says. Police said Cusate had injuries to her arm, neck and hand. Preliminary hearings are scheduled for Aug. 3.

WEST SIDE CAREER AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER BUDGET

Final vote by board KOs sports By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

PRINGLE – West Side Career and Technology Center finally has a 2011-12 operating budget, which eliminates a sports program, a recruiter and an inhouse suspension monitor. Administrative Director Nancy Tkatch said Tuesday that two legal requirements were met when she received ballots from the school board members of the five districts that send students to the center: A majority of those members voted yes, and at least five members from four of those boards also voted yes. Neither requirement was met earlier this month when the same 45 members

were asked to ratify a similar budget. That budget, like this one, eliminated all five sports at the school, and six members each from Wyoming Area and Lake Tkatch Lehman School Districts rejected that proposal. West Side then tried to hold a meeting of all 45 members, barely mustering a majority. Three different proposals failed to get enough votes.

Vandalism targets veteran

Police are investigating two acts of vandalism reported by a Marine Corps veteran Monday and Tuesday. Jim Burden, of 58 Taft St., said his neighbor witnessed a tall, thin white man about 35 years of age take a Marine Corps flag and flagpole from Burden’s porch and flee the scene in a black Chevrolet Blaze SUV at approximately 2:15 p.m. Monday. Burden isn’t sure whether the thief acted alone or whether there were others in the SUV. Tuesday, Burden awoke to find the windshield of his Ford F150 smashed and a rock 6 to 7 inches in diameter on the hood. The rock also broke a windshield wiper and left deep scratches on the vehicle’s hood, he said. Burden reported both incidents to police. The truck has a Marine Corps vanity license plate on the front bumper. HARRISBURG

In the case at hand, the woman admitted she had obtained the wristband from another patron who was exiting a bar at the resort. She then managed to attach the band to herself. Under state liquor law, a licensee

WILKES-BARRE – The Woodlands Inn & Resort has appealed a Luzerne County judge’s ruling that upheld a citation issued against the business for serving a minor. Steven Greenwald, attorney for the Woodlands, filed the appeal with the Commonwealth Court in connection with a citation issued in July 2009 for serving a 19-year-old woman. The Woodlands, trading as S&R Restaurant, has acknowledged that the woman was served. It argues it should not have been cited because evidence showed the woman had gone to extraordinary lengths to circumvent procedures the resort has in place to ensure minors are not served. In previous interviews, Greenwald said the Woodlands requires all pa-

State Rep. Paul Costa, D-Allegheny, said Tuesday he will introduce legislation to make underage gambling a criminal offense. Costa said he was prompted to author the legislation after hearing from several sources about the increasing number of individuals under the age of 21 trying to gamble at the state’s casinos. Although the current Gaming Act makes it unlawful for individuals younger than 21 to wager, play or attempt to play slot machines or table games, underage gambling is not a criminal offense. Costa said his legislation would make gambling by underage individuals a summary offense punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 for a first offense. A conviction for a second or subsequent offense would be classified as a third- Costa degree misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000. The fine could be increased if the offender presented fake or forged identification to enter a facility or at any time while in the facility. The two casinos in Northeastern Pennsylvania have been fined for underage gambling violations. Last week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board fined Mount Airy #1 LLC, operator of Mount Airy Casino Resort in Paradise Township, $70,000 for underage gambling violations.

A former Plymouth man accused of sexually abusing a female over a 10-year period initially agreed to plead guilty to the charges Tuesday, but withdrew the plea at the last minute. Ralph E. Lewis, 34, was about 45 minutes into the plea hearing before Luzerne County Senior Judge Kenneth Brown when he advised the court he wanted to go to trial. The development was the latest delay in the nearly four-

year-old case that stems from Lewis’ alleged abuse of a female that began in 1993, when the woman, now 27, was 8 years old. Police say Lewis sexually assaulted the female, who is known to him, hundreds of times from 1993 to 2003 and fathered two children with her. The woman came forward in 2005 to report the abuse. It took another two years before Lewis was charged, however. State Police Cpl. Gerald Williams, who investigated

the case, previously said the investigation took so long due to the complex nature of the case and the need to secure genetic testing to confirm Lewis was the father of the two children. Lewis was charged on Oct. 12, 2007 with more than 40 counts, including rape, aggravated indecent assault and involuntary sexual intercourse. He failed to appear for his preliminary hearing on Nov. 1, 2007, resulting in a warrant See PLEA, Page 4A

Service to be restored

Verizon customers should have their home phone and Internet service restored today. The company said outages in the Swoyersville area that began Monday night were the result of a lightning strike on equipment in the borough. A few hundred customers lost service but crews spent Tuesday repairing the damaged cables, according to company spokesman Lee Gierczynski. LARKSVILLE

Crews clean up after storm

Crews were busy Tuesday cleaning debris and tree limbs from roads after a severe thunderstorm moved through the area early Monday night. Heavy rainfall caused flash flooding, inundating many roads in Larksville, Edwardsville and Kingston. Numerous trees toppled in Larksville, including a tree that fell onto a building on State Street. Electrical service was interrupted in some areas. Rainfall totals greatly differed in Luzerne County on Monday. According to the National Weather Service in Binghamton, N.Y., more than an inch of rain was recorded at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. Nearly 5 inches fell in Hazleton, more than four inches in Swoyersville, three inches in Harveys Lake, and two inches in Laflin.

the six people who voted last time rejected the proposal to eliminate sports. This time, seven Wyoming Area board members voted, all yes. Tkatch said the cuts will save the center a total of $191,498. Last year, sports cost $109,863. The in-school suspension monitor – a post that has been vacated and will not be filled – cost $29,510. And the recruitment office budget, which included salary for an employee who will be furloughed along with supplies and other items, totaled $52,125. The center technically operated without a budget since June 30, when the old one expired, but Tkatch said there was enough money in reserve to keep paying bills until the end of this month.

and serve a three-day suspension. Greenwald appealed to county court. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley upheld the ruling in a decision issued on June 30. In a written opinion, Polachek Gartley said she did not believe the actions taken by the Woodlands were sufficient to prove it had acted in good faith to prevent serving the minor. Polachek Gartley noted testimony revealed that a bouncer had checked the woman’s wrist to ensure she had a wristband, but that action, in and of itself, was not sufficient to show good faith. The law requires additional steps, such as showing proof that the minor was asked for identification, the judge said.

he was being held on unrelated charges of burglary, assault and escape. The Luzerne County case was put on hold pending the completion of his sentence in the Oklahoma case. In the Luzerne County case, the alleged victim told police Lewis forced her to have sex with him an average of four to five times a month during one five-year-period, according to an arrest affidavit. The attacks became less frequent during the second five-year period, occurring about two to three times a month. She said she never told anyone because Lewis threatened to kill her.

The woman gave birth to two children, one in 2001 and the other in 2004. She suspected Lewis was the father, but never sought a DNA test because she was fearful of him. Police secured a court order to obtain Lewis’s DNA in 2005. Laboratory tests confirmed there was a 99.99 percent probability that Lewis was the father of both children. Brown began the process of selecting a jury immediately after Lewis decided not to go through with the guilty plea. Opening statements are expected to begin this morning.

‘Dad, dad, someone is shooting’

Norway begins to release the names of those killed in a bombing and shooting rampage. By KARL RITTER and LOUISE NORDSTROM Associated Press

Taking a drink of anger

A South Korean dairy farmer pours milk over his head as others burn a traditional coffin, symbolizing the South Korean government and a milk processing company during a rally demanding an increase of milk prices near the National Assembly in Seoul, South Korea, Tuesday. Thousands of dairy farmers opposed the South Korean government signing a free trade agreement with various countries, including the European Union and the U.S.

OSLO, Norway — The father of one of the first victims of the Norway massacre to be named by police Tuesday said his son was full of love for people and for the outdoors — and the young man’s last words to him were “Dad, someone is shooting.” Norwegian police began releasing the names of those killed in last week’s bomb blast and massacre at a Labor Party youth camp, an announcement likely to bring new collective grief to an already reeling nation. Police named the first four of at least 76 people dead. The first release listed three who were killed in a bomb blast in Oslo’s government quarter and

one dead after the rampage at a Labor Party youth camp. They were Gunnar Linaker, 23, from Bardu in northern Norway, who was a victim of the camp massacre; and Oslo residents Tove Aashill Knutsen, 56; Hanna M. Orvik Endresen, 61; and Kai Hauge, 33. Linaker’s father told The Associated Press by telephone that Gunnar was “a calm, big teddy bear with lots of humor and lots of love.” His voice weak and trembling, Linaker said he had been on the phone with his son concerning another matter when the shooting started. “He said to me: ’Dad, dad, someone is shooting,’ and then he hung up.” That was the last he heard from his son. Gunnar Linaker was among the wounded and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died on Saturday. His 17-year-old sister also was at the camp, but somehow survived the slaughter, he said. Clearly still very much in shock, he declined to speak any further.

Knutsen, a secretary at the union for electricians and IT workers, had left the office for the day and was on her way to a subway station when the bomb exploded in the government quarter, union head Hans Felix said. Normally Knutsen would go to and from work on her bicycle, but earlier that day she had left it at a repair shop. “It wasn’t finished, so this day she

had to take the subway home. Tove never got home,” Felix said in a statement. “Tove was a happy girl who was well liked by us all, and it feels unreal that she is no longer with us.” The lawyer for Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to the massacre, on Tuesday said his client was likely insane. He called him cold, and said he saw himself as a warrior and savior of the Western world.

He faces charges of threatening the president; being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm; and unlawfully possessing a fully automatic weapon. He’s also charged with receiving and possessing an unregistered grenade. Vance said in a statement Kodirov repeatedly threatened to kill Obama. Records say Kodirov was arrested July 13 near Birmingham after prosecutors say he obtained the machine gun from an undercover agent.

CHICAGO

Blago seeks reversal

In a bid to reverse his sweeping conviction on public corruption, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich slammed the handling of his recent retrial as flawed from start to finish. In the 158-page filing late Monday night, Blagojevich’s attorneys cited numerous instances of alleged judicial bias and error that helped the prosecution “strip away the effective aspects of the defense case.” The motion went on to accuse U.S. District Judge James Zagel of being a “rubber stamp”’ for the prosecution, saying he ruled against Blagojevich at nearly every turn during the trial. In fact, it is Zagel himself who will decide whether to dismiss the charges. A federal jury convicted Blagojevich last month on 17 of 20 wire fraud, bribery, attempted extortion and conspiracy counts, including allegations he tried to sell the U.S. Senate left open by Barack Obama’s election as president in 2008.

9/11 cancer claims blocked

A federal review says scientific evidence thus far doesn’t support adding cancer to a list of diseases linked to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City. The review, required under federal law, is the first of what will be periodic probes of scientific evidence on cancer and the exposure to contaminants at the World Trade Center site. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health released the report Tuesday. The federal law was created to compensate those sickened after 9/11.

Catholic Church officials say the Vatican’s envoy to the United States has been readmitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital with complications after recent lung surgery. The U.S. Conference of Bishops and Apostolic Nunciature announced last week that Most Rev. Pietro Sambi has been placed on assisted ventilation. It says he is suffering complications after delicate lung surgery two weeks earlier. Sister Mary Ann Walsh said Tuesday that Sambi had been readmitted to the Baltimore hospital but declined to comment on his condition.

Lawmaker to quit amid scandal

Eighteen-year-old woman has accused Democratic Rep. David Wu of Oregon of unwanted sexual encounter. By KEVIN FREKING Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Democratic Rep. David Wu of Oregon announced Tuesday that he will resign amid the political fallout from an 18-year-old woman’s allegations of an unwanted sexual encounter with him. Wu had already said that he would not seek re-election, but he had come under increasing pressure to step down. Shortly after the allegations broke, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi requested a House

Ethics Committee investigation of his conduct. “The well-being of my children must come before anything else,” Wu said in a statement. “With great sadness, I therefore intend to reWu sign effective upon the resolution of the debt-ceiling crisis.” Wu is the second House Democrat in the last six weeks to be forced to resign following allegations of sexual misconduct. Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York resigned after sending lewd photos of himself through Twitter. Wu faced allegations in his 2004 campaign that he had sexually assaulted a former girlfriend when they were

students at Stanford University in the 1970s Wu was elected to Congress in 1998 as the first Chinese-American to serve in the House. He’s maintained a centrist voting record but has been a leading voice on human rights abuses in China. He angered the high-tech firms in his district when he voted against normalizing trade relations with China. Wu’s hometown newspaper, the Oregonian, reported on Friday night that a California woman had called Wu’s office in Portland and reported an unwanted sexual encounter with him around Thanksgiving. The paper also reported that Wu told senior aides the sexual encounter was consensual.

Oil industry, government: Still too close for comfort? Documents show recusal policy on offshore inspections reveals business-regulatory ties. By DINA CAPPIELLO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Ties between offshore oil and gas companies and the agency that regulates them persist, nearly a year after the Obama administration announced an overhaul of ethics rules to deter such cozy relationships, documents obtained by The Associated Press show. About 1 of every 5 employees involved in offshore inspections in the Gulf of Mexico has been recused from some duties because they could come in contact with a family member or friend working for a company they regulate. Ten recent hires are barred for two years from performing work where they could be in a position of policing their previous employer — a company or contractor operating offshore. The numbers come from recusal forms filed with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Man-

agement, Enforcement and Regulation. Copies of the forms submitted by more than 100 inspectors, engineers and permit reviewers in five Gulf coast offices were obtained by the AP under the Freedom of Information Act. Personal information, such as the names of the employees, their friends and their family members, was blacked out to protect privacy. But the companies with ties to government workers were disclosed, and they represent a who’s who of the offshore oil and gas industry, from majors like Chevron, Shell and BP to smaller companies such as W&T Offshore Inc., Ankor Energy LLC and Hilcorp Energy Co. While inappropriate behavior has been limited to a few individuals so far, as both Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and BOEMRE Director Michael Bromwich have stressed, the forms quantify for the first time the extent of the bonds between the industry and the agency formerly known as the Minerals Management Service. The data also underscore the challenges the agency faces as it works to hire more inspectors in a region where offshore drilling is part of the culture and where expertise and training is often found in the private sector.

‘Our sense is the revolving door is still swinging too widely,’ said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., in an interview with AP after he had reviewed recusals during offshore inspections.

CHICAGO — A new study suggests that Medicare’s 5-year-old prescription drug plan is keeping seniors out of hospitals and nursing homes, saving the federal program an estimated $12 billion a year in those costs. The savings only offset a portion of the $55 billion a year the government spends on Medicare Part D, as the drug plan is known. But the study’s authors say it means seniors are staying healthier and enjoying a better quality of life. “This is what people always hope for: If people get drug coverage, they won’t need hospitalization,” said Marsha Gold of the nonpartisan Mathematica Policy Research, who wasn’t involved The study’s in the new authors say it study. “If it holds up, that’s means seniors are staying great news.” The Harvard healthier and analysis, apenjoying a pearing in better quality Wednesday’s Journal of the of life. American Medical Association, found Medicare saved an average of about $1,200 a year for each senior citizen who had inadequate drug coverage before Medicare Part D. Most of the savings came from hospital and nursing home costs. That translates to an annual savings of $12 billion, experts said. With subsidized drug coverage, seniors can afford drugs that prevent trips to the emergency room by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and controlling diabetes, said lead author Dr. Michael McWilliams of Harvard Medical School. Other savings come from doctors no longer admitting patients to hospitals just so Medicare would pay for drug treatments — like injectable clot-busting drugs for deep vein thrombosis — that can be given more cheaply in a doctor’s office, McWilliams said. “Spending on one type of service can reduce spending on another type of service,” McWilliams said. “By expanding Medicare to include drug benefits, clearly we’re spending more, but we’re getting a lot of value out of that spending.” The findings suggest that lawmakers, while grappling with reducing the federal deficit, should consider all of Medicare’s moving parts and how they affect each other, experts said.

own plan, which could come up for a vote as early as Thursday. “We’re in a stalemate,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday. “I mean, this is the problem we have, is that we need Congress to produce something that is a compromise and that, therefore, can get support from Democrats and Republicans in both houses and reach the president’s desk and meet the president’s approval.” The fate of both plans was uncertain Tuesday. The head of the International Monetary Fund warned Tuesday of dire consequences for the world economy if lawmakers fail to act by the Aug. 2 default deadline. In the House of Representatives, Rep. Jim Jordan, a tea partybacked Republican from Ohio, said there aren’t 218 GOP votes to pass Boehner’s two-step plan to cut federal spending by $1.2 trillion and extend the debt ceiling for about six months. House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland predicted that “very few” Democrats would vote for Boehner’s plan. Carney repeated President Barack Obama’s threat to veto Boehner’s bill should it make it through Congress, which he said isn’t going to happen because the Senate would never pass it. The conservative Club for Growth came out against Boehn-

“Our elected officials are useless,” Claire Kanter said. “Compromise and get it over with,” said her husband. “Before my credit goes down the drain.” They said they favor establishment of a third political party – America Elect.com “It is a crisis,” said Phil Rudy, owner of Circles on the Square in the downtown. “The Republicans are trying to do too much at once. They’re all good points and we have to avoid default. For small business owners like me, there’s a lot at stake.” Rudy was referring to the GOP’s plan of “cut, cap and balance.” Under the plan, approved by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and then tabled by the Democratmajority Senate, Congress would not approve raising the borrowing limit until there was an agreement that would cut spending by $111 billion in 2012, cap spending at 19 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product and approve a balanced budget amendment. U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, RHazleton, voted for the plan and said the GOP has offered a new proposal after the Senate failed to vote on the original plan. House Speaker John Boehner was revising the new proposal Tuesday night after the Con-

gressional Budget Office revealed that his bill wouldn’t cut as much spending as he’d promised it would. “The new plan we will be voting on contains many of the same principles of the cut, cap and balance plan,” Barletta said. “In the new plan, the proposed cuts will exceed what we are raising the debt ceiling to.” The freshman congressman said the first part of the twophase plan would add $1 trillion to the debt ceiling, but cut spending by $1.2 trillion over 10 years. The second phase, Barletta said, would probably come in January or February of 2012. He said the debt ceiling would be raised by $1.6 trillion, but about $1.8 trillion would be cut from existing programs over 10 years. “On the House side, we’ve done everything we could to resolve the issue,” Barletta said. “But the Senate failed to act.” Barletta said he is optimistic that the new plan “will and should pass both House and Senate. “I would be disappointed if it doesn’t,” he said. U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, RLycoming Township, said he is carefully reviewing the proposed budget legislation. Marino said his focus has always been and will continue to be doing what is necessary to create jobs. “At the root of all of our economic problems is this longtime attitude that government budgets are different from the budgets which our families and businesses must formulate and

It includes significant spending cuts of $2.7 trillion, including $1.2 trillion in discretionary spending cuts,” the statement read. “This has been a frustrating process marked by partisan politics and posturing. It is time for Washington to put politics aside and reach an agreement.” Carl Witkowski works downtown and he said the debt crisis has international effects. “I hope our elected officials understand the effect this is having on businesses and individuals,” Witkowski said. “There seems to be enough room on both sides for compromise.

er’s plan, calling it a poor alternative to the so-called “cut, cap and balance” measure that passed the House last week. That measure died in the Democratic-controlled Senate. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, on the other hand, backed the Boehner plan. In a letter to all House members, the chamber urged them to vote for the plan, saying that “this legislation is critical. Default on our debt obligations is not an acceptable option. The time for Congress to act is now.” On the Senate side of the Capitol, Reid was having a hard time mustering enough Republican support to get the 60 votes he needs to pass his plan, which is similar to Boehner’s. The major difference is that Reid’s plan would extend the federal government’s borrowing authority through 2012 — beyond the presidential and congressional elections — while Boehner’s would extend it for about six months, requiring another extension battle next winter. Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, said Tuesday “the issue needs to be resolved immediately” for the world’s sake. “Indeed,anadversefiscalshock in the United States could have serious spillover for the rest of the world,” Lagarde said before the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Either a default or downgrading of U.S. debt by ratings agencies “would be a very, very, very serious event, not just for the United States but for the global economy at large.”

Founding member of America band dead Funeral for ’70s musician Dan Peek, 60, will be held Monday in Missouri.

By JIM SALTER Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Dan Peek, a founding member of the popular 1970s band America and singer of high harmonies on hits that included “A Horse With No Name” and “Ventura Highway,” has died, his father said Tuesday. He was 60. Peek’s wife, Catherine, found him dead Sunday in bed in his home in Farmington, Mo., about 60 miles southwest of St. Peek Louis, Milton Peek said. The cause of death was not known, and an autopsy was planned. Dan Peek suffered from arthritis, but it wasn’t known if that was a contributing factor. Peek, whose father was in the U.S. Air Force, had met the two other members of America — Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley — while attending high school in London. After signing a record contract, America was an almost instant sensation with songs featuring tight harmonies over catchy tunes. All told, America had three platinum and three gold albums, along with eight Top 40 hits, from 1971 through 1975. “It was a joyous time for the three of us, full of excitement and laughter,” Bunnell wrote on the band’s website after learning of Peek’s death. “We created lasting music together and experienced a life that we could never have imagined.” The group’s first album in 1971 included the No.1hit “Horse With No Name.” Other hits followed: “Tin Man,” “Sister Golden Hair,” and “Daisy Jane,” among them. Peek played lead guitar on many of the songs, and wrote some of them, including the 1974 hit “Lonely People.” “Dan & his music will live on in the great songs he shared with us all,” Beckley wrote on the group’s website. Peek had lived in Farmington since 1978, soon after he left the band. He also had a home in the Cayman Islands.

British producer Mark Ronson leaves Golders Green Crematorium after attending the funeral of Amy Winehouse in London, Tuesday. Ronson produced her award-winning album ‘Back to Black.’

A singer’s life is celebrated Close friends and family say farewell and good night to Amy Winehouse.

By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press

LONDON — Wearing dark suits, black dresses and the occasional beehive hairdo, friends and family said goodbye to Amy Winehouse Tuesday with prayers, tears, laughter and song at an emotional funeral ceremony. The singer’s father, mother and brother were joined by Winehouse’s close friends, band members and celebrities including producer Mark Ronson for the service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in north London. Media personality Kelly Osbourne was one of several women to wear her hair piled beehive-high in an echo of the singer’s trademark style. Fans and photographers

thronged the lane outside, but the funeral was for several hundred friends and family only. The Jewish Winehouse service was led by a rabbi and included prayers in English and Hebrew and reminiscences from Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse. The cab driver and jazz singer, who helped foster his daughter’s love of music, ended his eulogy with the words “Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much.” It ended with a rendition of Carole King’s “So Far Away,” one of Winehouse’s favorite songs. “Mitch was funny, he told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognized the stories and laughed along,” said family spokesman Chris Goodman.

“He stressed so many times she was happier now than she had ever been and he spoke about her boyfriend and paid tribute to a lot of people in her life.” According to the Press Association news agency, Mitch Winehouse said during the ceremony that his daughter was trying to overcome her addictions, having told him: “Dad I’ve had enough, I can’t stand the look on your and the family’s faces anymore.” He said he planned to set up a foundation in his daughter’s name to help people struggling with addiction. “Knowing she wasn’t depressed ... knowing she passed away happy, it makes us all feel better,” he said. Family friend Alfie Ezekiel, 55, said the service had been a “joyful” celebration of the singer’s life. “Mitch gave a very good eulogy and he managed to get through it very well, considering,” he said.

“For 40-Years, I was tortured by unbearable Acid Reflux” “Now, I can even eat spicy foods again without that awful acid burn, piercing through my esophagus!” By Ralph Burns; “Former” acid reflux sufferer

Here’s My Story: I've Suffered With Acid Reflux for Almost 40-Years Now. Unless you experience it; you can’t imagine how horrible it is. Every time I ate spicy food I would get what I called "ROT GUT". Like something was rotting in my stomach. But now I can eat anything… No matter how spicy. Even if I never could before. Let me explain… For the better part of my life; I purposely avoided a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I’d experience a burning sensation through my esophagus— like somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that, those disgusting "mini-throw ups" and I was in "indigestion hell".

"I was beside myself. What was I gonna do? Keep taking the pills, or suffer with problems that could ultimately be my demise”. Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Sometimes, I felt like I was dying. The pain was unbearable and nothing could make it stop. But then my wife, who occasionally suffered with the same problem; gave me one of her prescription acid blockers. It was a miracle. I felt like I could live again. Because before that, I was just miserable. I wanted to kill myself. But thankfully, it worked, and worked well. I felt great, until about one year ago; when I read an FDA warning that scared the heck out of me. It went something like this… FDA WARNING! Using proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on a long term basis, increases your risk of hip, bone and spinal fractures. That's a particular concern to me, since many acid blockers are PPI's. I've gone through two back surgeries and bilateral hip replacements. I had to ask myself, could PPI's have been responsible for my medical woes? After all…

“The Recommended treatment for Prilosec OTC®, Prevacid®24HR and all other PPI's is only 14-days— I TOOK THEM FOR 14-YEARS!” I was “between a rock and a hard place”. Stop using the PPIs and I'm a “dead man in the water”. It would be unbearable. I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I’d have to go on a water diet. But that FDA warning was scary. I knew I had to stop or else risk developing spinal stenosis. My mother

had that. And I watched her die a horrible death. Her spine just fractured. It was the worst death. She didn't deserve that. And neither do I.

“Every time I ate something that didn't agree with me… I’d get what I called ‘Rot Gut’ — like my stomach was rotting out!” I had to quit. So I stopped taking PPI's for a day or so. But my indigestion was worse than ever. I would rather take the chance of a spinal fracture than to live like that again. I tried everything. Even started using home remedies like Apple cider vinegar. But it just felt like I was pouring even more acid down my throat. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said "why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said "aloe drink"? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!” The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure®. I was skeptical, but I was desperate! So instead of being an ingrate I decided to try it. I was shocked! AloeCure®. Tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the PPI's altogether and replaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure®. Then something remarkable happened… NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion. And here’s the best part. The next day we had Italian food — my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40-years I didn't get indigestion without relying on prescription or OTC pills and tablets. Finally, I just didn’t need them anymore! I was so thrilled; I wrote the AloeCure® company to tell them how amazing their product is. They thanked me, and asked me to tell my story... the story that changed my life. I said “Sure, but only if you send me a hefty supply of AloeCure®. I just can't live without it. But don't believe me. You have to try this stuff for yourself. I recommend AloeCure® to anyone who suffers with the same problem I did. It gives you immediate relief. You'll be grateful you did. I sure am. It's the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time. TRY IT 100% RISK-FREE! The makers of AloeCure® have agreed to send you up to 6 FREE bottles PLUS 2 free bonus gifts with every order— they’re yours to keep no matter what. That’s enough AloeCure® for 30days of powerful digestive relief, absolutely free! But hurry! This is a special introductory offer, reserved for our readers only.

area and watched two vehicles pull into the secluded area near the Susquehanna River. Heasley was among the participants in the demonstration of the firearms he was interested in selling, the criminal complaints say. State police said Heasley fired two shots from a gun before troopers converged on the group. Six rifles and a crossbow were found in Heasley’s vehicle, according to the criminal complaints. State police said the firearms and crossbow were stolen during the burglary in Noxen Township. Heasley was visiting a friend in Noxen Township and knocked on a neighbor’s door but found no one was home. He entered the house through an unlocked door and took the firearms and other items, the criminal complaints say. Heasley allegedly told state police he arranged to sell the firearms for $1,400 to a man he encountered in the area of Academy Street and Carey Avenue. State police at Wyoming charged Heasley with six counts of receiving stolen property after the firearms were found in his vehicle. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing last week on those charges, according to court records.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We can’t allow the American people to become collateral damage to Washington’s political warfare.” President Barack Obama In his prime-time address to the nation on Monday night, the president pleaded for compromise regarding the nation’s debt crisis and urged Americans to contact their lawmakers.

STATE OPINION: BIRTH RECORDS

Respect shown for stillborn babies

T

HE WORD “stillborn” expresses the complete tragedy in two syllables. A baby is born, but for whatever reason it does not breathe. In Pennsylvania, the parents are left with their grief but no official birth record. That is about to change, thanks to a new law. Senate Bill 326 will require the state Health Department, which previously could provide only a fetal death certificate, to issue a birth certificate of sorts upon request of a parent. This

“certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth” will include the name of the stillborn child and other details of the delivery. As the politics of abortion can confound any legislation dealing with births, this measure could have been problematic, but compassion trumped controversy. Mothers who gave birth to stillborn babies urged lawmakers to pass it. Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania did not oppose it. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Hold on tight, folks; Wall St.’s headed for another slide HERE WE go again. The debt ceiling debacle that is unfolding in Washington is not about ideology and it’s not even about putting the nation’s fiscal house in order. It’s not even really about the American people. This is about appeasing just one group of people: the people on Wall Street. And before this is over, watch out for a Wall Street panic, which ultimately breaks the deadlock. So far, the Street, frankly, has been largely asleep at the switch. Even as the economy has continued to falter it’s been more than happy to keep the gears of commerce greased with plenty of government money. After TARP there came quantitative easing. After quantitative easing came QE2. That money has bolstered not just the bond markets, and lined the pockets of Goldman Sachs, but bolstered the equity markets. And so the Street has thought: Hey, those guys down in Washington will make a deal, eventually. And a deal means predictability; and that’s what investors, correctly, want. They want to know which corporate loopholes are opened or closed. And yes, they want to know if those Bush-era tax cuts are going to be there when that big year-end bonus comes in. And like any bunch of bankers, the Street’s got nothing against a bigger national debt – as long as there’s a nice fat schedule to pay it down. And both parties have been vying for the Street’s favor. The Republicans on the tax side and the Democrats, now, on the spending side. And here’s why: If President Obama can force a deal on his terms that Wall Street is OK with, the stock market could go through the roof, people could get jobs – and he’s going to get a second term. If the con-

MAIL BAG

RICHARD PARKER gressional Republicans can get the Street what it wants, then they can curry favor with people who have been traditionally Democratic donors, and capture Congress. And nobody in this equation could care less about the Republicans running for president. But the Republicans have one big problem: the tea party. The tea party’s freshmen Republicans have held the line and insisted on cutting spending, even if that means not raising the debt ceiling above the current $14.3 trillion, even if it means defaulting on the debt. They’ve aligned themselves, too, with keeping the Bush-era tax cuts. And there’s the rub, the contradiction. So, Wall Street is going to have to choose between those great big bonuses and default. And that’s why Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lost his nerve and House Speaker John Boehner scheduled utterly symbolic, meaningless votes on things such as a constitutional amendment – that are going absolutely nowhere. So the freshmen can cover their behinds at home and then they can get on with voting to raising the debt anyway. It’s why Boehner breaks off talks and then rushes back into them, so Wall Street doesn’t go into cardiac arrest for a lack of both predictability and liquidity. But it’s likely going to get ugly before that happens. The tea party isn’t getting the message: Washington works for Wall Street. The stock markets are really going to drop, is my guess, and put the pressure on

’til Mitch McConnell feels like his eyeballs are going to pop out of his head. So, unless Obama folds, Wall Street is going to have to choose between those sweet bonus checks and a certain amount of liquidity and predictability – and, oh yeah, having their clients start to hire some people. Right now, outside the Beltway and Manhattan, there are just two kinds of Americans: those who can’t find jobs and those who think they’re next. But make no mistake: Unless Obama crumples up, that queasy feeling you’re about to get as the market slides and real people’s savings and jobs are put on the line again is real. It has, after all, happened before. In 2008, when the financial system ran out of liquidity, the stock market slid out of control for days when the House first shot down TARP. Ultimately $10 trillion in wealth was destroyed. It’s happening in Europe because of Greece. And that’s what happens when the masters of the universe and their minions in Washington play God. So, buckle up, folks, because here we go again. Richard Parker is a journalist and publisher, a regular contributor to McClatchy-Tribune Information Services.

COMMENTARY

Unless Obama crumples up, that queasy feeling you’re about to get as the market slides and real people’s savings and jobs are put on the line again is real. It has, after all, happened before.

f one is to believe the president’s warnings of impending doom if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by Aug. 2, I have to question the merits of putting any faith in a plan by this vaunted “Gang of Six” (which is comprised of three Democrats and three Republicans). As I write this, the House and Senate Democrats, President Obama and this “Gang of Six” have not produced a written plan to handle the debt ceiling. All they have done is complain a lot about the Republican proposal and offer a bunch of speeches. Ladies and gentlemen, speeches cannot be run through committee. Speeches cannot be evaluated by the Congressional Budget Office. Speeches cannot be voted on by the House of Representatives or the Senate.

WILKES-BARRE – The city once again is asking the WilkesBarre Area School District to forgive about $440,000 in back taxes on the Old River Road Bakery property. The back taxes have prevented the city from obtaining a clear title needed to sell the property to Leo Glodzik. Now the city faces a more pressing possibility – that it may lose the property altogether in a backtax sale. Northeast Revenue Service LLC, which operates Luzerne County’s tax claim office, has filed court paperwork asking a county judge to lift a stay that kept the property out of a September 2010 back-tax sale. A hearing on the matter had been scheduled this week but was continued until Aug. 9 at the city’s request. Attorney John Rodgers, president of Northeast Revenue, said he filed the paperwork as part of the company’s mission to stop properties that are eligible for sale from falling through the cracks.

Contacted on his cell phone, Keller blamed the economy for his inability to get current on his taxes. “The market crashed, and it’s getting harder and harder to sell,” he said. “There’s not much you can do.” Keller also shouldered some responsibility, saying he was too hasty in grabbing some parcels that needed extensive repairs to make them marketable.

Adams, who proudly says she lives in Rock Glen, said she would be saddened to lose the town’s post office. “I’d hate to see that happen,” she said. “The biggest thing is you’d lose your identity. All the little towns are no longer recognized.” Judy McHenry, the postmaster at the Cambra Post Office on the Old Tioga Turnpike, said she has one of the smallest post offices around, with only 35 boxes. But she said her sales of postage and supplies are at a level the postal service has requested and the customers enjoy the convenience of a local post office. “It would be a shame to see it go,” said McHenry, who noted the village has had a post office since 1822 when the town was called Columbus. She is the town’s 26th postmaster and hopes she won’t be the last. “I guess we’ll have to sit and wait,” she said.

Wilkes-Barre wants to sell the former Old River Road Bakery building to Leo Glodzik. But a tax sale threatens to complicate the plan. The bakery closed in 1999.

Bank in Dunmore conveyed the property to the city for $1 in April 2008. The bank had obtained title to the property after Old River Road Bakery Inc. had defaulted on its mortgage. The Old River Road Bakery became a local landmark after its opening in 1950 but closed in January 1999 after a steady loss of customers to supermarket rivals. Leighton’s agreement to sell

HOW TO BID The Aug. 10 sale starts at 10 a.m. in the county courthouse in WilkesBarre. Bidders must complete paperwork in advance certifying that they have no delinquent property taxes or municipal utility bills within the county. Prospective bidders must also verify that they have not had a landlord license revoked in the

county and are not acting as an agent for someone with a revoked license. Information on bidding is available by calling the county tax claim office at 825-1512 or visiting the office’s website, www.luzernecountytaxclaim.com (click on the judicial sale heading at the left of the main page).

Aug. 10, according to a review of property deeds and assessment records. If the county assessments of these 10 properties are any indicator, Keller got a good deal. The properties have a combined

assessment of $334,000 for taxation purposes. The parcels are a vacant 0.62acre lot on Indian Lake Trail in Bear Creek Township and homes – all on lots less than a quarter-acre – in Wilkes-Barre,

The mayor said he’s eager to execute the sale because the roof on the rear portion of the property is “going to collapse.” Glodzik spent thousands of dollars removing “Dumpster after Dumpster” of debris from the property, including raccoons and dead rodents, he said.

Pittston Township, Plymouth, Newport Township and Avoca, property records show. Keller paid $157,035 at tax sales to buy the other 10 properties that have not yet gone to auction. The combined assessment of this group: $792,600. While acknowledging there’s money to be made, Keller said during a 2006 interview that tax sale purchases are “a huge risk” because litigation is sometimes required to clean up unforeseen liens and get a clean title to a property. Starting bids for Keller’s 10 properties will range from $750 to $878 on Aug. 10.

Bidding typically starts around this amount because buyers are required to pay only what it costs the county for legal and advertising fees related to the sale. Properties listed in this judicial, or “free and clear” sale, did not sell at previous back-tax auctions. High bidding interest is expected because these properties will now be free of taxes, liens and mortgages. Property owners may get the properties removed from the sale if they pay the back taxes before the sale. Properties go to auction if taxes have gone unpaid for two years.

NFL

It’s a free agent free-for-all Hundreds will be seeking new jobs

BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is one of more than 100 free agents looking to sign with NFL teams.

S W B YA N K E E S

It’s more than just a Krum

The free agency freefor-all has begun, mostly with obscure names from the college ranks. It will get wilder. Contract negotiations for free agents and draft picks started Tuesday, with draftees able to sign right away. The big names among veterans — Nnamdi Asomugha, Santo-

nio Holmes, Matt Hasselbeck — can’t sign until Thursday, but their agents are negotiating deals right now. Throw in dozens of players who will be cut, such as Dallas receiver Roy Williams and Baltimore tight end Todd Heap, which officially can’t happen until Thursday, and it’s “organized chaos,” according to Colts general manager Chris Polian. “It’s a lot of stress, work, preparation. But it’s what we all look forward to. It’s our playoffs and our Super Bowl,” agent Peter Schaffer said. Indeed, several agents said they didn’t expect to sleep Tuesday as the NFL reopened for business after 41⁄2 months. In addition to their clients already in the

league who are unrestricted or restricted free agents, they will have veterans released. And they are trying to set up youngsters, such as college starters safety Winston Venable of Boise State (Chicago) and quarterback Jerrod Johnson of Texas A&M (Philadelphia), with teams after they were passed over in April’s draft. “I always have a lot of guys in that category, and it’s been absolutely nuts,” said agent Joe Linta, who placed Michigan State tight end Charlie Gantt with the Chiefs and Cal receiver Jeremy Ross with the Patriots on Tuesday. He also fielded calls from a dozen teams for Utah defenSee NFL, Page 5B

Yankees outfielder takes advantage of rare opportunity to spark lopsided victory. By MIKE HAIM For The Times Leader

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Since making his Triple-A debut in May, Austin Krum hasn’t had too many chances to be a hero for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. He found the right time to take advantage of an opportunity on Tuesday night, and it led to another lopsided win. Krum broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth inning with an RBI single, then made a diving airborne catch in the bottom half of the inning as the Yankees pummeled the BuffaYANKEES lo Bisons 11-2 in the first game of a four-game series at Coca-CoBISONS la Field. After Krum’s clutch plays, Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre posted consecutive four-run innings. The outburst came the night after the Yankees’ largest win of the year, a 15-1 victory over Syracuse. It marked the second time this season that the club posted a double-digit score in consecutive games. Back on June 23 and 24, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre won 10-5 against Norfolk and 14-3 at Durham. “We’ve been swinging it much better,” said Yankees manager Dave Miley, whose club won its fourth straight. “We’re getting good at-bats and taking good approaches.” In the fourth inning, Krum came to the plate in a tie game with Jordan Parraz at second. Krum delivered a sharp single to center field, went to second on the throw home, and scampered to third when that throw bounced beyond Buffalo catcher Mike Nickeas. Though he didn’t score after that, Krum was far from finished. His diving grab off the bat of Luis Hernandez to lead off the Buffalo half of the frame generated more momentum. That inning then ended when center fielder Greg Golson started a relay to retire Nickeas at the pate. “Those are the game-changers,” said Krum, who was 1-of-3 with two walks. “Sometimes it kind of explodes like it did. … (I was hoping) that gave us some

Hero Holdredge delivers American dream

By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

OLD FORGE – The wait was much longer than anticipated, but well worth it for the Back Mountain American all-stars on Tuesday night. After a long rain delay, American captured the Section 5 10-11 Little League Baseball championship with a 7-6 victory over Mountain Top in eight innings at the Old Forge Little League. For the second time in two games, Josh Holdredge delivered the walk-off, gamewinning hit. It wasn’t as dramatic as his homer that secured American’s 6-5 win over

AMERICAN Holdredge grounded a one-out single up the middle to score Jared Schuster from third, sending AmerMOUNTAIN ican to the state playoffs TOP this weekend in Latrobe. It was the third time in the tournament that an American vs. Mountain Top game was decided by one run. And it appeared in the seventh Mountain Top might be the team going home with the victory. It loaded the bases with no outs, but relief pitcher Schuster worked out of the

jam. American cut one runner down at the plate before Schuster recorded a strikeout and fielded a comebacker for the third out. “Bases loaded in the seventh with nobody out,” American manager Steve Mathers said. “That showed the resilience in the boys that we didn’t allow one in there.” For awhile Tuesday, it appeared the game would be rained out for a second consecutive day. Two heavy rainstorms, one prior to the scheduled 5:30 p.m. start time and another about 6 p.m., pushed the game back to about 8 p.m. See AMERICAN, Page 6B

OPINION JOHN LEICESTER

Freedom will make 2012 a winner If Johnnie Walker lived in China, the police would have knocked on his door by now: “You, come with us.” Because Walker bad-mouths the Olympic Games. Publicly, vocally. To park buses and other vehicles a year from now, organizers of London 2012 have requisitioned a dozen of his best soccer pitches from the amateur league that Walker runs. The chirpy Londoner is, in local parlance, mightily cheesed off about that. “We’re being pushed aside for three weeks of elitist sport,” says Walker, chairman of the Hackney and Leyton Sunday Football League, founded in 1947. The vast and boxy new Olympic media center to host journalists next summer, which Walker can see from his East London home, is also “bloody awful,” he said. “I’ve seen better buildings pulled down.” Sssshhh! You’ll get into trouble! That’s what we might have said to someone such as Walker in Beijing in 2008. Had we actually seen and heard them, that is. Vocal complainers, impassioned protesters, critical and searching public debate about the pros and cons of an Olympics were largely notable by their absence in China. The Olympic movement was poorer for it. There was the brave soul I saw being marched away after he distributed leaflets outside Beijing’s Olympic park that complained about games construction. There were the labor camp grannies, Wu Dianyuan and her neighbor Wang Xiuying, ladies in their 70s who were threatened with prison after they showed that government promises were hollow and cynical. Having said they would allow protests in designated zones during the Olympics, Chinese authorities refused all those who applied. The elderly women called the government’s bluff, repeatedly trying for a permit, and were instead told they’d be sent to a labor camp for one year. After the Olympics, Wu and Wang’s sentence was revoked, but the list of people who were locked up or otherwise made to shut up was still too long for the games to leave a sweet taste, despite the feats of Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps and other champions. The London Olympics a year from now won’t match Beijing for grandeur. Penny-pinching Britain doesn’t have the moneyno-object resources that Communist leaders marshaled, with minimal public scrutiny, to dress China in the best possible light for its Olympic coming-out ball. London’s Olympic venues won’t be as iconic as Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium or its Water Cube where Phelps struck gold eight times. The terrorism risk in London could be higher. The city’s groaning public transport system may not run as smoothly. The food won’t be as good. But these will still be better Olympics — in some ways, they already are — because London has the key ingredient that Beijing sorely lacked to host truly soul-searing games: freedom. To feel comfortable, an enterprise as expensive, as huge and as disruptive as an Olympics should always be subject to the highest possible degrees of See GAMES, Page 4B

Many two-year old pacers have come and gone the last several weeks at Pocono Downs, and one of the most impressive maiden breakers to date makes his second career start this evening. That colt’s name is Bolt The Duer! Two weeks ago the son of Ponder was just breath taking in his debut. Leaving from post eight the Peter Foley trained pupil gunned early off the gate for the pocket, just past the quarter-pole he decided it’s time to flash his talents. Driver Mike Simons took the lead with Bolt The Duer heading towards the half-mile marker nd never looked back, jogging as a much the best winner in 1:54.1. I think that there certainly was more left in the tank and he’s ready to flash his speed once again in a very good non-winners of two opening race.

PHILADELPHIA — Rookie right-hander Vance Worley threw a three-hitter and Chase Utley hit an inside-the-park homer to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night in a matchup of the NL’s top teams. Worley (7-1) had five strikeouts and one walk, and has allowed two earned runs or less in 11 of his 13 career starts. It was Worley’s fifth straight win. Ryan Howard, John Mayberry Jr. and Raul Ibanez also homered for the Phillies (6537). Mets 8, Reds 6

CINCINNATI — Jason Pridie put New York ahead with a two-run double, and the Mets took advantage of one of Cincinnati’s worst defensive performances of the season. The Mets scored six unearned runs off Johnny Cueto (6-4) with the help of three errors, matching the Reds’ high for a game. The Reds traded left fielder Jonny Gomes to Washington for two minor leaguers shortly before the start of the game. Marlins 11, Nationals 2

Dobbs drove in a career-high five runs, including a solo homer, and Logan Morrison and John Buck each homered to lead the Florida Marlins to a win against the Washington Nationals. Dobbs drove in Florida’s first run in the first on a groundout, scoring Omar Infante who had tripled. He added another run-scoring single in the seventh and two more on a single during Florida’s five-run ninth inning. It was the second time this year the Marlins have scored at least 10 runs. Florida beat the Cubs 13-3 on July 16. Cardinals 3, Astros 1

ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols got the St. Louis Cardinals off to a quick start with a tworun first inning homer, and starter Jake Westbrook made it hold up with six innings of one-run ball as the Cardinals defeated the slumping Houston Astros. Pujols hit the first pitch he saw from Houston starter Brett Myers on a line to left center field. The ball appeared to hit the top of the wall, but was ruled a home run by third base umpire Mike DiMuro. Houston center fielder Michael Bourn and left fielder Carlos Lee rushed in to dispute the call.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L July 26 1928 — Bob Meusel of the New York Yankees hit for the cycle for the third time in his career. The Yankees scored 11 runs in the top of the 12th to beat the Detroit Tigers, 12-1, in 12 innings. 1939 — The New York Yankees tied a major league record by scoring in every inning against the St. Louis Browns. Bill Dickey hit three home runs in the 14-1 win. 1962 — Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee Braves set the National League record for home runs by a pitcher when he hit his 31st off New York’s Craig Anderson. Spahn dealt the Mets their 11th straight loss with a 6-1 victory. 1970 — Johnny Bench of the Cincinnati Reds hit three straight homers off Steve Carlton of the St. Louis Cardinals. On the same day, Orlando Cepeda of the Atlanta Braves connected for three consec-

utive homers in an 8-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. 1984 — Pete Rose of the Montreal Expos tied Ty Cobb on the all-time career singles list, No. 3,052, with a base hit in the eighth inning in a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. 1991 — Montreal’s Mark Gardner became the first to pitch nine no-hit innings against a Dodger home team since Johnny Vander Meer beat Brooklyn at Ebbets Field on June 15, 1938, for his second straight gem. But the Dodgers won in the 10th on two singles off Gardner and Darryl Strawberry’s RBI single off Jeff Fassero.

SKIING

Silver medalist Peterson is found dead The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY — Olympic silver medalist Jeret “Speedy” Peterson was found dead in a remote canyon in Utah in what police are calling a suicide. Peterson, a freestyle skier who patented the so-called “Hurricane” and took second place at the Vancouver Games with it, called 911 before shooting himself, police said. The 29-year-old had been cited for drunken driving Friday in Hailey, Idaho and had pleaded not guilty. Officers found Peterson late Monday night between Salt Lake City and Park City in Lambs Canyon. Police said a suicide note was found near Peterson’s car; they declined to reveal what it said.

He was one of the most colorful of athletes, and he wore his heart on his sleeve — never more than on Feb. 26, Peterson 2010, when he walked off the mountain after taking second place — the silver medal — with tears streaming down his face. “I know that a lot of people go through a lot of things in their life, and I just want them to realize they can overcome anything,” Peterson said that night. “There’s light at the end of the tunnel and mine was silver and I love it.” It was a poignant closing chap-

ter to a career that, until then, had been filled with success on the smaller stages of his fringe sport but defined in the mainstream by his moment at the Turin Olympics where, after finishing seventh, he was sent home early after a minor scuffle with a buddy in the street. Over the next months and years, he began telling his story. In Italy, he was still reeling from the suicide of a friend, who had shot himself in front of Peterson only months before. Peterson also had problems with alcohol and depression and admitted he had his own thoughts of suicide, all stemming from a childhood in which he was sexually abused and lost his 5-year-old sister to a drunken

driver. “Today is a sad day in our sport,” Bill Marolt, the CEO of the U.S. ski team, said in a statement Tuesday. “Jeret ‘Speedy’ Peterson was a great champion who will be missed and remembered as a positive, innovative force on not only his sport of freestyle aerials, but on the entire U.S. Freestyle Ski Team family and everyone he touched.” Peterson got his nickname because of the big helmet he wore, one that made him look like Speed Racer of cartoon fame. But quickly, he became better known for the “Hurricane”— a triple-twisting, double-flipping trick off the snowy ramp that was more difficult than anything anyone else would try.

It was high-risk, high-reward, and Peterson always insisted he’d have it no other way. It was a sight to behold when he landed it and the judges rewarded it. Helped by the huge difficulty marks for the jump, he still holds the two-jump scoring record of 268.70, set at Deer Valley in January 2007. He had seven wins on the World Cup circuit, was the 2005 World Cup champion and a three-time American champion. But the stats and the medals were only a fraction of the story. Born with the heart of a gambler, he took that passion to Las Vegas and won $550,000 playing blackjack one night. But within years, he had given some of it away and lost even more in the

tanking real estate market. Trying to decide whether he wanted to stay in the sport after Turin, he took time off and started working in the construction business — a place, he said, where he could see the effort of a hard day’s work without having to walk into the video room the next day and break it down on the TV screen. But skiing was his passion, and he recommitted leading up to Vancouver. And what a payoff. He came in second that night, but hardly felt like a runner-up. “I do it because I want to be the person I know I can be,” he said. “I’ve really changed things around in the last 3½ years. This is my medal for everything I’ve overcome, and I’m ecstatic.”

With the NFL lockout finally lifted, five undrafted Penn State players signed free-agent contracts on Tuesday. The co-captains from the 2010 team, receiver Brett Brackett and defensive tackle Ollie Ogbu, reached deals with the Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts, respectively. Linebacker Chris Colasanti also signed with the Colts, while linebacker Bani Gbadyu and offensive lineman Lou Eliades both ended up with the Oakland Raiders. Brackett was a wide receiver for the Nittany Lions but could get a look at tight end with the Dolphins along with former Penn State teammate Mickey Shuler. In an interesting coincidence, the Dolphins also signed former Penn State and Delaware quarterback Pat Devlin on Tuesday. Brackett had been recruited out of high school as a quarterback and came to Happy Valley expecting to play under center. But Devlin was a late addition to that 2006 recruiting class, allowing Penn State to switch Brackett to a different position. Devlin transferred to Delaware after the 2008 season in order to be a two-year starter to help his chances at reaching the pros. Colasanti and Ogbu land in Indianapolis, where former Penn State assistant Jim Caldwell is the head coach. Eliades will rejoin linemate Stefen Wisniewski in Oakland, where Wisniewski’s uncle Steve is an offensive line coach. The two often played next to each other for the Lions, with Wisniewski playing right guard and center and Eliades at right tackle and right guard. Eliades missed most of his senior season with a torn ACL. Poz reportedly headed south NFL teams can’t officially sign other team’s free agents until Friday, but NFL Network reported Tuesday that former Penn State star linebacker Paul Posluszny will leave the Buffalo Bills to sign a six-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Posluszny’s priority was reportedly to find a team with a 4-3 defense, which he prefers to the Bills’ 3-4 scheme. Lions land defensive back New Hampshire cornerback Jake Kiley gave a verbal commitment to Penn State on Tuesday, becoming the 13th member of the Lions’ 2012 recruiting class according to multiple recruiting services. Kiley – a 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete from New Hampton, N.H. – pledged to Penn State within a day of receiving a scholarship offer, his first from an FBS program. With four of the team’s top six defensive backs set to graduate after this season, the Lions find themselves hurting for depth in the secondary. Kiley is the team’s first DB commitment in the class.

He Ducks key question

Oregon coach Kelly said he can’t talk about dealings with recruiting service. By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — Chip Kelly had several months to prepare for the questions he finally faced at Pac-12 media day. The Oregon coach claimed he’s eager to explain every aspect of the Ducks’ dealings with a Texas-based recruiting service. Kelly told the Pac-12 media he would love to talk, but he’s not allowed to clear up a problem that’s threatening to tarnish the Ducks’ run to the national title game last season. Kelly refused to discuss the Ducks’ relationship with Willie Lyles on Tuesday, moments after Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens confirmed the program is under review by the NCAA and the school. Although Kelly spoke at his usual mile-a-minute pace during his interview session at the Fox studio lot in Century City, his first public comments about the investigation contained little new information. “I would love to talk about it, and when we have a chance after the report comes out, I will be able to clear up any questions that anyone has about the whole situation,” said Kelly, whose Ducks went 12-1 and dominated the Pac-10 last year. The troubles of the conference’s marquee program overshadowed the introduction of Utah and Colorado to the reconfigured Pac-12, which will have two six-team divisions and a conference title game in December at the top team’s stadium. Most media members expect that game to be at Autzen Stadium. Oregon was picked to win the title game in the poll announced Tuesday, getting 28 of 42 votes. Even with just 11 returning seniors, the Ducks are favored

OSU makes it official: Pryor not coming back COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State made it official on Tuesday that former Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor could not have played at any time during the 2011 season and also banned him from any contact with the school’s athletic program for the next five years. Ending speculation that Pryor had not met the NFL’s requirements for a supplemental draft, Pryor’s lawyer sought and received a letter from Ohio State stating that he would not have been eligible even after his five-game suspension to start the season. Because he also failed to cooperate with the NCAA in its investigation of improper benefits given to Ohio State players — which led to the forced resignation of coach Jim Tressel — Pryor was told he was “completely disassociated” from the program where he starred for three seasons.

to win the North Division with 29 first-place votes. Southern California, which isn’t eligible for the title game under NCAA sanctions, is narrowly favored over Arizona State in the South Division. “Our goal is to win the South,” said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, whose former BCS-busting Utes were picked third in their division. “I’m sure the other five teams in the South are thinking the same thing.” Every other team in the Pac-12 also is wondering whether the Ducks’ problems will derail a burgeoning dynasty. In a statement sent out to Oregon supporters by email last Friday, Mullens said the Ducks have retained a law firm to assess the program’s payment of $25,000 to Lyles, a Houstonbased recruiting service owner, for an apparently outdated scouting report last year. Kelly said Oregon publicly will an-

nounce the results of its evaluation when it ends. The NCAA is investigating whether Lyles steered star running back Lache Seastrunk to Oregon, which would be a violation of NCAA rules. Lyles has said his services went beyond the normal scope of a scouting service, acknowledging he “made a mistake.” The Ducks rolled to their second straight league title last season, going undefeated in the regular season before losing to Auburn in the BCS title game. Seastrunk will compete for playing time during preseason camp as a backup tailback behind LaMichael James, the returning Heisman Trophy finalist. The Ducks paid Lyles for information about players in the 2010 recruiting class, but Lyles’ scouting report mostly covered players who had already signed letters of intent in 2009 — largely useless information. “As head coach of this football program, we’re held accountable for everything we do,” Kelly said. “I’d love to talk about it. There are a lot of answers I’d love to make sure we can get out there.” Oregon’s off-field troubles didn’t put off poll voters, particularly with James and quarterback Darron Thomas returning to lead the Ducks’ hyper-aggressive offense. They’re also not doing much to affect the Nikebacked school’s recruiting, according to Kelly. “I haven’t had to address it with the recruits right now,” Kelly said of the Ducks’ recruiting-service woes. “We’re coming off back-to-back Pac-10 championships as we move into a brand-new league with a brand-new television contract. It’s a bright future for us. We had a berth in the Rose Bowl (in the 2009 season). We had a berth in the national championship game, and I understand from the kids we’ve talked to, our recruiting is going very, very well.”

Pittston Area’s Brandon Matthews shot a 5-over 75 on Tuesday at the 98th Pennsylvania Amateur to finish the second round tied for 16th place at Lancaster Country Club.

Gates opening as well as arms Here come the Jets and everyone else as NFL players start getting back to work. By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. AP Sports Writer

A big green and white sign greeted Mark Sanchez as he drove up to the New York Jets’ training facility for the first time in months. And, boy, was it a pleasant sight. “Welcome Back!” it blared in block letters, followed by “Here Come The Jets.” “It was wonderful,” Sanchez said with a big smile Tuesday. “Now we’re back and we can start playing, so it’s good.” The gates were up, facilities were open all around the league and NFL players finally went to work. Now, they need to get ready for the season in a hurry. “It’s good to be back, get everything over with and just come back and feel welcome again,” said Brett Swain of the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. “Get back in the roll of things and get camp started.” After a lockout that lasted 4½ months ended Monday with an agreement between the NFL and

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants have told center and player representative Shaun O’Hara and guard Rich Seubert that they will be released. A source close to each veteran told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the team told the players they would be cut on Thursday in what are salary-cap moves. The Giants might also cut another offensive lineman on Thursday. Tackle Shawn Andrews, who played in 13 games and started seven last season, tweeted that he and the team failed to rework the six-year, $32million contract he signed last year. Andrews also tweeted that things weren’t over, but that might mean his career more than his time with the Giants. The Giants are roughly $10 million over the NFL’s new $120.4 million salary cap. The releases of O’Hara ($3.45 million in 2011) and Seubert ($2.25 million) will reduce the problem by roughly $6 million. Andrews made $1.5 million last season. O’Hara, 34, who was the starting center since 2004, was limited to six games last season because of ankle and foot injuries. He had surgeries on both in the offseason. O’Hara, who played at Rutgers

and is a local fan favorite, has been the Giants’ player representative in recent years and he voted in Washington on Monday on the agreement that ended the 4½month lockout. The 32-year-old Seubert probably was the Giants’ most valuable lineman last season. He moved from guard to center after both O’Hara and backup Adam Koets were sidelined. However, Seubert suffered a major knee injury against Washington in the final game of the season when he dislocated his right knee. It was his second major injury. He broke his right leg in a game against Philadelphia in 2003 and did not return until the 2005 season. He needed five surgeries to repair the leg. It was uncertain whether either O’Hara or Seubert would have been ready for the season, anyway. The Giants could re-sign them, but it is not known, at this point, if either wants to come back. The moves leave Koets as the only returning center with starting experience, and he also is coming off a major knee injury. O’Hara, Seubert, guard Chris Snee and tackles David Diehl and Kareem McKenzie once had a streak of starting 32 consecutive games in a run that made them one of the NFL’s top offensive lines. The Giants open the preseason on Aug. 13 at Carolina.

“In this climate, anything’s possible,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh, whose team will release Heap, receiver Derrick Mason and running back Willis McGahee. “You may have an opportunity to bring some of those guys back. You may not. It just depends on how things shake out the next couple of days.” What also might shake out: shorter contracts. Teams might not be comfortable with longterm deals (the five- and six-year varieties) in this post-lockout cli-

mate. The big bucks could be there, but not for as many seasons. “Being a free agent in 2011 doesn’t necessarily mean that those players will all sign lucrative long-term deals,” said agent Ben Dogra, who represents soonto-be former Cowboy Williams. “You will see more short-term deals than ever before. Agents will have to project into free agency of 2012 as much as this year.” At least in 2012, things will return to normality.

its players, teams’ facilities were buzzing with activity Tuesday. During the lockout, the Tennessee Titans had a chain around their closed front gate to keep players out. That chain was gone and the front gate wide open as rookie quarterback Jake Locker, the No. 8 pick overall in April, and quarterbacks Rusty Smith and Brett Ratliff were among the first to arrive. “It is nice to drive by and not have the lock on the gate and actually get a friendly smile when you come in here,” left tackle Michael Roos said. Players all around the league were allowed back in to meet with coaches, work out, take physicals and receive playbooks — among other things. “I came for the free lunch,” quipped Washington Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong. Teams were already starting a feeding frenzy on their drafted players and undrafted free agents, and were allowed to start negotiating with free agents in what will likely be a flurry of activity the league has never seen. Players such as Nnamdi Asomugha and Santonio Holmes will soon find out where they’re going — or staying — as free agency began.

Philadelphia Eagles’ Michael Vick arrives at the team’s NFL football training facility Tuesday in Philadelphia.

“With this whole free agency opening up, it’s going to be crazy,” Redskins quarterback John Beck said at the team’s facility in Ashburn, Va. “Our team’s going to look different.” Washington has several free agents to address this summer, including Santana Moss, Rex Grossman, Carlos Rogers and Rocky McIntosh. Oh, and there’s also the murky statuses of Donovan McNabb and Albert Haynesworth to deal with. The Jets and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have 16 players who are unrestricted free agents, including Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Antonio Cromartie and Brad Smith. “It would be interesting just to get a camera in (Tannenbaum’s office) and see how crazy it could be,” center Nick Mangold said. Teams were also greeting players by saying goodbye, at least for now. The New York Giants have told center and player represen-

tative Shaun O’Hara and guard Rich Seubert that they will be released. A source close to each veteran told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the team told the players they would be cut on Thursday in what are salary-cap moves. At Cowboys’ camp in Irving, Texas, Dallas was set to release several high-priced players, including running back Marion Barber, receiver Roy Williams, right guard Leonard Davis and kicker Kris Brown — according to multiple people familiar with the decisions who told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team had not made any announcements. The Baltimore Ravens told running back Willis McGahee, former Pro Bowl tight end Todd Heap, wide receiver Derrick Mason and nose guard Kelly Gregg they will be cut. “It’s just the reality of the salary cap,” coach John Harbaugh said.

that might happen in the next few days, particularly for a high-profile player such as Asomugha. Most of it won’t. “I think all of the guys realize this is going to be a whole new world,” agent Jordan Woy said. “Most said, ’Listen, the bottom line is the team I’m with I like. If somebody out there is really interested, if they come with a great offer up front, then we’ll look into that.’ “They realize they’re going to have to make quicker, probably

less-informed decisions than they have in the past. They’re just going to have to do best they can.” So are the teams. Sure, all 32 clubs have had more than enough extra time to watch video and dissect the games of every free agent on the market. Maybe that’s not such a great think; overanalysis has destroyed the chances of many an NFL team through the years. And now there’s the added element of all those vets being released.

Plains-1 takes Distict 16 championship The Times Leader staff

JUNIOR LEGION REGIONAL TOURAMENT Plains goes 1-2

Plains Junior American Legion went 1-2 in the state playoffs. Plains opened the tournament with a 8-7 victory over Boyertown. Dave Mariggi picked up the win on the mound. Josh Razvillas and Michael Schwab had big days at the plate. Plains followed that game with a 12-6 loss to Nether Providence out of Media. Joe Champi and Schwab had two hits each. Plains then lost to Lower McKungie, 6-2. Mariggi had a home run in the game. Mountain Post 7, North Parkland 5

Anthony Caladie struck out six batters while earning a complete-game victory and went 3-for-4 at the plate to lead Mountain Post into the tournament’s Final Four in an earlier game Tuesday. Two of Caladie’s hits were doubles. Curt Yenchik also went 3-for-4 and drove home three runs in Mountain Post’s victory, while teammates Ethan Markowski and Jon Wychock both belted doubles. Bloomsburg 6, Mountain Post 3

Dom Sartini hit a threerun homer in the nightcap, but that was the only offense for Mountain Post, which was eliminated from the tournament with the loss. Curt Yenchik finished 2for-2 for Mountain Post.

er singled to right field. Strikeouts accounted for every out until Ashleigh Clarke grounded out on a drag bunt to Raskiewicz. “She’s just an incredible pitcher,” said coach Klosko. “That’s how she’s been all year for us, keeping the ball out of play.” With a four-run lead, things became dicey for Raskiewicz. Christy Mathewson scored three in the fourth and three in the fifth to move within a run.

KFF responded by posting four runs in the bottom of the fourth, led by Raskiewicz’s tworun single to left field. It garnered an insurmountable lead with three runs in the fifth inning, highlighted by a run-producing line drive single to left field by Danielle Cook. Christy Mathewson’s biggest chance of the game came in the bottom of the fifth inning in a bases-loaded situation with the go-ahead run on first base. Raskiewicz forced a Christy Mathewson batter to swing at a high pitch to end the scoring threat. “That’s 10 and 11 year old girls; that’s all it comes down to,” said coach Klosko. “Sometimes they make some plays.

Sometimes they don’t make some plays. “They call each other sisters and you’re not going to let your sister down. That’s how they played.” Raskiewicz led KFF at the plate with a 2-for-3 performance with two runs and three RBI. Morgan Klosko produced the lone extra base hit for KFF and scored two runs. Cook scored in all four of her plate appearances and notched two hits. Christy Mathewson’s Decker went 3-for-4 with two runs. Decker allowed just four earned runs. Clarke singled and a scored a run for Christy Mathewson.

momentum and we carried it all the way through.” It was further proof that Krum is becoming more comfortable with his play at Triple-A. “Anytime you move up a level, there’s going to be an adjustment,” added Krum, who hit .242 with 13 RBI at Trenton prior to his May 21 promotion. “I was trying to do way too much when I first got here. Now that I think I’m used to it, it’s flowing a lot better.” With Krum’s stellar inning in the books, Jorge Vazquez hit his league-leading 23rd homer, a two-run shot, to cap the fifth-inning rally, and Jesus Montero stroked a three-run homer in the sixth to put the Yankees up 11-2. The big lead enabled starting pitcher D.J. Mitchell to cruise to his teamhigh eighth win of the season. The righthander (8-7), who won his fourth straight decision, allowed four hits (two each in the second and fourth innings) but walked six in a six-inning outing. NOTES • Former Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Red Baron Justin Germano threw a perfect game for the Columbus Clippers on Tuesday in Syracuse. In 2006, Germano made six starts for the Red Barons when the team was affiliated with Philadelphia. He was 2-0 with a 2.82 earned run average that year. With his perfect game, in which he struck out seven, Germano (1-2) earned his first win. • Earlier Tuesday, the New York Yankees activated third baseman Eric Chavez from the 60-day disabled list. To make room, fellow infielder Brandon Laird was optioned back to Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre. Laird was 1-for-6 with an RBI in four games for New York. Before his promotion, he batted .266 with Scranton with 10 home runs and 49 RBI.

“We were trying to keep the kids focused on every pitch,” Mathers said. “We had about a two-and-a-half hour delay in getting the game started.

Nastia Liukin still unsure about 2012

At an event Tuesday in Manhattan celebrating a year until the Olympics, the 21-year-old called the choice “a little overwhelming.” From one sentence to the next, she’ll veer from sounding like an athlete ready to retire from elite competition to one determined to go to another games.

American, though, took a 6-4 lead into the fifth before Mountain Top tied the score and eventually forced extra innings. Sean Wills did so with a two-run single for Mountain Top. Barrett, who fanned nine as the starter, finished 3-for-4 at the plate with four RBI. Holdredge added two RBI. Knapp paced Mountain Top by going 2-for-3 with three RBI. Wills also finished with two RBI.

PLAINS TWP. — Ryan Gorki and Mike Wozniak combined to strike out 11 while scattering seven hits as Plains-1 topped Duryea 8-3 on Tuesday to win the District 16 Junior Teeners baseball championship at Hilldale Park. Gorki, Wozniak and David Cekloski all had two hits apiece to lead Plains-1 at the plate. Joe Miraglia and Derrick Gebhardt both scored two runs. Noah Gebhardt helped preserve the lead with a late diving catch. Peter Kulick and Nick Anatasi each had a pair of hits for Duryea. Plains-1 will face District 31 champion Northwest next week in Shickshinny for the Wyoming Valley overall title.

Debt stalemate hits shares

A White House threat to veto legislation that would avert a debt default pushed stocks lower Tuesday. Major indexes were already down for the day when the White House said it would object to a Republican plan in the House of Representatives that calls for raising the debt limit by $1 trillion. The plan would require the debt issue to be voted on again next year, something President Barack Obama does not want. If an agreement is not reached by Aug. 2, the U.S. won’t have enough cash to pay all its bills and could default on its debt.

on the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index. It hasn’t approached that level since the recession began in December 2007. Brian Reardon, a 29-year-old insurance consultant from New York, says there’s a reason consumers aren’t confident. He’s been cutting back on spending because all the recent unemployment and housing data has been mixed, making him uneasy about the economy. “One day it’s good news,” he says, “and the next day you hear some company is downsizing.” Economists carefully monitor consumer confidence because consumer spend-

NEW YORK — Two years into the recovery, Americans’ confidence in the economy continues its roller coaster ride. As their short-term outlook on jobs and income eased somewhat amid a mix of optimistic and bad economic news, U.S. consumers’ confidence rose slightly to 59.5 in July, according to a survey released Tuesday by a private research group. That’s up from a revised 57.6 in June — which marked a seven-month low in the measure — but still well below the reading of 90 that signals a healthy economy

After yet another strong quarter for Hershey, the nation’s second-largest candymaker raised its outlook for the full year Tuesday, predicting that sales will rise by 6 percent and earnings will jump by 10 percent. The Hershey Co. nearly tripled its second-quarter profit, largely because of one-time costs that dampened profits a year ago. But the company also posted strong sales, higher prices, better foreign currency exchange rates and some earlier-thanexpected orders. Revenue rose 7.5 percent to more than $1.3 billion. After accounting for a one-time credit of $1.8 million, it met Wall Street’s expectations.

ing accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. But consumer confidence has changed like the wind during the economic recovery, fluctuating up and down as consumers react to the stock markets, corporate news and world events. Earlier in the year on the index, which measures how Americans feel about business conditions, the job market and the next six months, respondents were more optimistic that the economy was on track for a recovery. But consumer confidence has fallen since reaching a three-year high in February of 72. A shift of less than five points is generally discarded by economists as insignificant.

Setback for Saab recovery

Automaker Saab’s recovery efforts were dealt a setback Tuesday after Sweden’s state-controlled debt collector announced that a group of creditors has demanded its money back. In addition, the automaker said it was forced to delay salary payments to some 1,600 white-collar workers since the company has yet to receive funds committed by investors. Earlier this month, the Swedish government approved a deal that would allow Saab to sell some $40 million in property that would give the company an injection of working capital. The company hopes to restart production this summer.

Swiss watch time? By SANDRA M. JONES Chicago Tribune

C

HICAGO — Watchmakers have come to terms with the fact that the wristwatch is no longer about telling time. Almost every American — 96 percent, to be exact — carries a mobile phone that always shows the time. But watchmakers aren’t ready to let generations of young consumers live without a watch. Instead, the Swiss, the world’s largest producers of watches, are leading a campaign to revive the watch as a status symbol in the U.S., particularly among men, who make up the bulk of the market. Watch companies are rolling out their own branded stores, reinventing the way watches are sold and stemming the rise of discounting. “We decided the best way to get into the U.S. market would be to make a strong statement,” said Stephen Urquhart, presi-

dent of Omega, a division of Bienne, Switzerland-based Swatch Group AG, the world’s largest watchmaker. “To really tap the American market, the only way to do it is to open our own stores.” Like most Swiss watchmakers, Omega has been selling its watches in the U.S. through jewelers and department stores for more than 100 years. But Omega didn’t operate its own stores, until recently. During the past year, the watchmakerhasopened16Omegaboutiques in the U.S. It opened its first store in New York in 2009 and has an additional nine stores set to open during the next nine months in the U.S. Rolex and Tag Heuer, both Swiss companies, unveiled their first freestanding stores in the U.S. this year.

The world’s largest retailer on Tuesday started streaming many movies the same day they come out on DVD, in a second bid for a share of popular movie rental and streaming website Netflix’s business and just two weeks after Netflix announced new price increases. Wal-Mart Stores bought videostreaming service Vudu.com 18 months ago and now offers 20,000 titles that can be viewed on almost any device with Internet access, from computers to televisions to Sony’s PlayStation3 and other Blu-Ray disc players. Movies are available at Walmart.com to rent for $1 to $5.99 or to purchase for $4.99 and up. Wal-Mart is not offering subscriptions

The Federal Reserve’s 12 regional banks do surveys on local economic conditions eight times a year. The result is its Beige Book, which uses anecdotal evidence to assess the strength of the economy. The last report, issued in early June, found that the economy slowed in several regions. The Beige Book being released today looks at the economy from late May to early July. It’s likely to confirm that job growth was weak during that time.

Employees can vent on website By WENDY LEE Star Tribune

MINNEAPOLIS — Terrible managers. Incompetent colleagues who get raises. Layoffs. Those complaints are usually whispered in conversations at the office, but now, St. Paul, Minn., entrepreneur Ryan Masanz hopes to profit by putting them online. His website, OfficeLeaks.com, lets employees post anonymous comments on their employers. Masanz lets companies monitor the comments for a fee but vows to never reveal employees’ identities. The website has raised legal concerns, but Masanz said he believes Office Leaks will give employers an uncensored view of their business. “I think great companies want to know honestly what employees think,” Masanz said. Office Leaks was inspired by Masanz’s mother. She found out her firm was laying off workers in the weeks ahead but wasn’t in a position to tell a colleague who was planning to buy a home, creating a moral dilemma. In Office Leaks, users enter their email address to set up an anonymous account and choose a cartoon character to represent themselves on their company group. The address is later verified. The site went up in April and so far has registered 468 users at 262 companies. Some of the posts are public, but others are locked, at the user’s choice, allowing only the company’s employees to see them. Some users’ gripes might have been whispered at any water cooler, while others seem like insider rants. “First, you know who did not have the Excel file ready,” said yet another user, “and then you know who passed the buck on that, which fell squarely in my lap. Why I oughta ... “ Some legal experts say the site may put employees at risk of losing their jobs if their identities are discovered. Issues that might arise include harassment or discrimination, said Sandra Jezierski, a partner in the law firm Nilan Johnson Lewis. But Masanz says the service doesn’t retain information that could identify users except those who sign up for email alerts. Masanz makes money by letting companies sponsor their group for $99 a month. A sponsorship allows employers to monitor postings in their group and respond to comments. A company can take down five posts a week but is advised to do so only if they violate Office Leaks’ rules, Masanz said.

Ford, Chrysler have a mixed second quarter By ANDREW KHOURI Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — U.S automakers Ford and Chrysler saw decreasing profit but rising sales during the second quarter of 2011. Despite rising sales, Ford Motor Co. saw its profits dip about 8 percent during the second quarter as commodity prices rose and as the company paid off its debt and invested in new vehicles. Ford said Tuesday it earned $2.4 billion, or 59 cents a share, in the second quarter compared with a profit of $2.6 billion, or 61 cents per share, during the same period last year. The Dearborn, Mich.-based automaker posted $35.5 billion in revenue, a 13 percent jump from the same period last year. American sales jumped 15 percent

to $19.5 billion, and despite struggling European economies, Ford saw its sales jump 20 percent to $9 billion across the Atlantic during the second quarter. But North America provided the only increase in operating profit for the company, to $1.9 billion. South America, Europe and Asia all saw decreases in pretax operating profit. Ford said it decreased its debt $2.6 billion in the second quarter. The company borrowed heavily in 2006 to restructure and prepare for the industry downturn.

Ford said it expects results in the second half of 2011 to be lower due to higher commodity prices and seasonal trends. Also on Tuesday, Chrysler Group LLC reported a net loss of $370 million as it repaid government loans taken as part of its bailout during the financial crisis, a move that cost the company $551 million. Without that payment, net profit would have totaled $181 million, the company said. Revenues jumped 30 percent to $13.7

billion in the second quarter, compared with the same period last year. “There is no doubt that Chrysler Group has taken a huge step forward this quarter,” Sergio Marchionne, chief executive of Chrysler and Fiat SpA, said in a statement. Fiat, which controls Chrysler with a 53.5 percent stake, reported secondquarter earnings of (euro) 1.3 billion ($1.9 billion), compared with (euro) 90 million in the same period a year earlier. Revenues rose 40 percent to (euro) 13.15 billion. The maker of Fiat, Ferrari and Alfa Romeo brands, booked a one-off gain of (euro) 1.058 billion from the takeover of Chrysler after integrating the U.S. carmaker’s numbers in its balance sheet on June 1.

Don’t panic

Stock indexes fell Monday and Tuesday, and the deadline for Congress and President Obama to agree to raise the government’s borrowing limit is now just six days away. Anxiety is expected to keep rising, and that’s likely to make investors sell. If there is no deal, the U.S. will be at risk for defaulting on its debt. Here’s how to ease your anxiety:

Avoid a clearance sale

Consider cash

Many financial advisers say investors should stick with a long-term strategy and leave their portfolios alone. If you can’t resist the urge to sell, don’t just dump stocks. Sell only as many as you need to calm your nerves, says Kate Warne, a strategist at Edward Jones. Two other suggestions: Look carefully at any stock that makes up more than 10 percent of your assets. A big drop in one stock could take your portfolio down sharply. Sell your riskiest stocks. Those might include stocks in emerging markets or small companies. Investors see these stocks as very risky, and they tend to fall the most when the market falls. The Russell 2000 index is made up of small companies. It’s down 1 percent in the last week. The S&P 500 is up 0.3 percent.

Fund managers say cash should make up between 10 percent and 20 percent of your investments. It can be a cushion when stocks fall. It also gives you the ability to buy if you see a stock that looks like a bargain. Money market mutual funds are considered a safe place. But right now, they offer almost no return. If there’s a default by the government, it’s not clear what return you’d get from them, because many invest in Treasurys. A bank account may be your best bet. The website bankrate.com has a list of banks that pay the best rates.

Expect the market to remain volatile Knowing that the market is likely to go through a rough patch can help you make rational decisions. Financial analysts say a deal will be a temporary fix. Debates about the budget and borrowing limit will continue. Investors have another fear: Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s may lower the country’s credit rating. That could drive up borrowing costs and hurt the economy. Francesca Levy, Elizabeth Gramling • AP

I saw a scary sight in the WNEP backyard last evening when we took a direct hit from a thunderstorm. The storm brought straight line, downburst winds measured at 64 mph bending over large trees with a flooding downpour and a coating of pea-size hail. The Poconos also had gusts to near 65 mph. In the wake of those storms today we have cooler and lesshumid air in town with plenty of sunshine and a guarantee for no rain. Our next chance for storms will come late tomorrow leading the way for hotter and more humid weather heading into the weekend. But temperatures won't get as high as they were last week.

Wasabi peas add punch to ahi tuna FRESH TUNA IS a perfect option for a light supper on a warm summer evening or an impressive appetizer when entertaining. This wasabi-encrusted tuna is so flavorful, you only need a light sprinkling of the dressing. This tuna dish will pair well with a lighter white wine such as a dry Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc. •••

WASABI PEA-ENCRUSTED AHI TUNA SALAD 2 Ahi tuna steaks, 6 ounces each Fresh red and yellow pepper slices Arugula Green onion Avocado Fried shoestring onions (see below) Wasabi peas, crushed Sesame seeds Bit of sesame oil Flour

Dressing: ⁄4 cup white wine vinegar 1 ⁄4 cup soy sauce 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ginger, minced 1 ⁄2 teaspoon Chinese hot mustard 1 ⁄2 cup sesame oil 1 ⁄2 lime, juiced Dressing: Mix the ingredients for the dressing, adding the oil last, pouring slowly to emulsify. Set aside. Fried onions: Thinly slice a medium white onion. Dredge the slices in flour and deep fry until crispy. Salad: Arrange all ingredients on a plate. Tuna: Rub the tuna steaks with sesame oil, season with salt and pepper, then coat with the crushed wasabi peas and sesame seeds. Heat a sauté pan. I used a small amount of olive oil, but you could sear dry. Let steaks cook on a medium-high heat for 3 minutes on each side. When finished, slice in 1⁄2-inch pieces and arrange on top of salad.

ambalaya is a rich tomato-based dish from Louisiana that is jammed with meat and bold flavorings. And it is not generally considered a healthy dish. To health it up a bit, we

switched out some of the heavier meats for leaner options. We also used a small amount of flavorful andouille sausage; a little bit adds lots of flavor without adding tons of calories and fat. Using brown rice, of course, is another way to add a nutritious touch.

And to make the most of summer’s bounty — as well as to add a green vegetable — we used the jambalaya as a stuffing for roasted zucchini. The mixture would be equally delicious stuffed into a hollowed-out tomato or bell pepper. Serve the dish with a green salad and a piece of crusty French bread to round out See ZUCCHINI, Page 5C

Lobster as a comfort food is catching on By CLARKE CANFIELD Associated Press

PORTLAND, MAINE — Macaroni and cheese and pot pies may conjure up images of grandma’s kitchen. But those traditional dishes these days are being combined with the king of seafood and transformed into value-added lobster dishes that some are calling gourmet comfort food. Varied selections of prepared frozen products, such as lobster macaroni and cheese, lobster pot pie and lobster pizza, are making their way to grocerystore freezers aimed at mainstream consumers — not just the white-tablecloth crowd. The creations are targeted at lobster-lovers and foodies who don’t want to deal with a live product and want the ease and convenience of simply taking something out of the freezer and popping it into the oven. The first time Maine Lobster Coun-

“It appeals to folks because it’s a familiar form. It’s kind of exotic, but familiar at the same time so people can relate to it.” Dane Somers Maine Lobster Council Executive Director

people can relate to it.” Maine accounts for more than 80 percent of the U.S. lobster catch, with last year’s harvest reaching a record 93 million pounds. Inside grocery stores, lobsters traditionally have been sold live out of circulating-water tanks placed near seafood departments. Some stores sell frozen lobster tails or lobster meat, but the value-added products were slim pickings. In Maine, Calendar Islands Maine Lobster Co. launched its line of eight frozen lobster products in January. The products are now sold in more than 100 grocery and specialty-food stores, mostly in New England but also in the St. Louis area and in Hawaii. The top seller is lobster macaroni and cheese, followed by lobster pizza and lobster pot pie.

cil Executive Director Dane Somers heard about frozen lobster macaroni and cheese, he didn’t think it was the smartest idea because many people associated the dish with the 99-cent boxed variety. He’s changed his mind now. “It appeals to folks because it’s a familiar form,” Somers said. “It’s kind of exotic, but familiar at the same time so See LOBSTER, Page 5C

This jambalaya mixture makes a perfect stuffing for roasted zucchini.

Heat the oven to 400 F. Using a melon baller or a small spoon, scoop or scrape out and discard the seeds from the zucchini halves, creating long narrow canoes. Sprinkle with the salt, garlic powder and pepper, then place hollow sides up on a baking sheet. In a large skillet over medi-

um, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the green pepper and celery and saute for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the tomato paste, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, then continue to cook until the mixture becomes aromatic and begins to darken in color, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the sausage, shrimp, chicken and rice. Adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper and the lemon juice. Scoop the mixture into the zucchini boats.

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.

LOBSTER Continued from Page 1C

Restaurants have been selling fancy lobster dishes for a number of years, and Calendar Islands is trying to replicate the dining-out experience with in-home products, said John Jordan, president of the Portland-based company. The new creations are less expensive than they would be in a restaurant (and less than the company’s website prices), but they’re not cheap — the pizza sells for about $19 in grocery stores, the lobster pot pie for about $13 and the macaroni and cheese for about $10. “The whole category of value-added lobster was kind of slim. You just didn’t find it in supermarkets,” Jordan said. “In some ways, this is really a new category for stores.” Cal Hancock started her Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. 11 years ago after living in the Midwest, where people told

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 2011 PAGE 5C her they liked lobster but didn’t want the hassle of getting them shipped in the mail and having to throw them in boiling water to cook them. When she moved back to her native Maine, she started a mail-order business on the premise of making lobster products that are easy to fix. Nowadays, many of her products are sold at hundreds of specialty food stores as far away as California. Her frozen lobster macaroni and cheese, lobster risotto and lobster corn chowder are sold at a small number of Hannaford supermarkets in Maine. She even sells a frozen “Maine shore dinner” with two lobster tails, mussels, shrimp, scallops and two ears of corn in a thick, heavy foil bag that goes from the freezer to the oven or an outdoor grill. “You can live in New York City in an apartment and have a lobster bake,” she said. Her best seller is the lobster mac ’n cheese, which she launched three years ago, followed by lobster pot pie and

lobster flatbread. “I think people like the familiarity,” she said. “You can come up with something different like my lobster wellington, but it’s not as familiar as the other things.” Linda Bean introduced her line of frozen value-added lobster products in March and is selling frozen, packaged lobster claws at hundreds of WalMart stores, she said. Her company, Linda Bean’s Perfect Maine, also sells frozen lobster ravioli and has plans to expand its frozen line of products. With the lobster catch at an all-time high, it’s important to develop value-added products so there’s a market for the high volume of crustaceans that are trapped off Maine’s rocky coast, she said. Maine’s lobster harvest has grown from under 40 million pounds to more than 90 million pounds in the past 15 years. “We are not aiming for the luxury market. We’re aiming for the mass market,” Bean said. “The future is making it easy for people to eat lobster.”

Shrewish woman should be the object of neighbor’s pity, not scorn Dear Abby: There’s a venomous old woman who roams through our neighborhood looking for victims to embarrass, humiliate or annoy. She told a neighbor’s 11-year-old granddaughter she looked like a slut because she was wearing shorts currently in fashion for the young. She cuts in front of people in line at the supermarket, puts 25 items on the 15-item service line, etc. A new neighbor thought she should be treated with a little kindness. She had her opportunity recently when we were out to breakfast at a restaurant. The harridan sat alone (her husband refuses to be seen in public with her), and my friend com-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE mented to her on the beautiful day. Her response? “Don’t waste my time with meaningless inanities!” She then proceeded to abuse the server by repeatedly sending her plate back, each time becoming more unpleasant. At that point, my friend walked over and said quietly, “I hope you don’t think your advanced age justifies your meanness.” The witch accused my friend of “slandering” her and left vowing never to return. Why do some people behave so outrageously? How can she derive satisfaction from being hateful? — Puzzled in San Diego

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Puzzled: Ruling out the idea that the person you have described may be mentally disturbed, it’s possible she may be so unhappy in her personal life that she’s trying to make herself feel better by abusing others. She’s a sad case. Dear Abby: I am a 34-year-old man, I have been divorced for a couple of years and have no children. I have been dating an incredible woman, “Nikki,” who is a bit older than I am. She has three children. The elephant in the room has always been whether or not Nikki would want more children. We finally discussed it, and she confirmed that she does not. She said she’s looking forward to the next phase of her life as her kids get older, which I under-

CRYPTOQUOTE

stand. That conversation has led to a break in our relationship. We haven’t spoken for the past two weeks, and it seems like two years. I am struggling with what to do. I have always wanted to be a dad. Would being a stepdad be as fulfilling for me? Is being in a good relationship more important? Having kids doesn’t automatically make things great, right? Could I find someone as wonderful as Nikki, but who wants to have a kid? Abby, I’m conflicted, and you’re the only one I could think of for advice. — Jumbled in New Hampshire Dear Jumbled: Only you can decide whether being a stepfather to Nikki’s children would be enough for you. For some men, it would be. For oth-

ers, it wouldn’t be enough. Of course, the primary relationship must be between the husband and wife. Children grow up, leave and establish lives of their own. While there are no guarantees you will find someone as wonderful as Nikki, the odds are very good that you will meet a woman — or more than one — whose goals are similar to yours and who would love to have a family with you. But it won’t happen until you firmly decide exactly what you want. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Do not try to parent other people’s children, even if you’re paid to oversee them. Knowing the boundaries will save you from trouble. The principle will also apply today to adults who act like children. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will witness inspiring examples of sharing and caring. Indeed, you may be the instigator of these acts, as you will be moved to express the deep affection you feel for loved ones. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will praise good behavior in others. You’ll do this subtly, so as not to come across as overbearing. You are practiced in the art of leading from behind. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have poise, presence and a clear voice. You will ask for what you want, and you will get it. You have the confidence of a leader. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone is not who he says he is. The situation is a little like Dorothy and her friends visiting the Wizard of Oz. The one in power has to posture and pretend because that is what he thinks the citizens expect. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your apprehensions will keep you from taking a risk that’s not worth taking. However, when you see an opportunity that is right for you but scary because it’s new, you will courageously seize the moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You believe it’s rude to ramble on to a captive audience. And yet, you will listen patiently to the one who has trouble getting to the

point. That’s how kind you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who believe that crying is a form of weakness and is to be avoided at all costs. They are forgetting that there is a healing balm inside every tear. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be on the lookout for new treasures. There is an item very near you that would fit in perfectly with a collection or special interest of yours. Ask specific questions, and you’ll find your way to it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You didn’t sign up to be a role model, but that is what you have become. So embrace your position, and show everyone the way. It is one of your many purposes on the planet. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You feel wronged by someone. This person meant you no harm, but his or her selfishness has caused you extra work. Consider that on some level you may have agreed to this inconvenience. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A ritual can help you release what is old and let in new light. This doesn’t have to be a practice laid out for you by religion or tradition. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 27). Your easygoing way will attract good fortune to your personal life in August. Just don’t brag, or loved ones will get jealous. You’ll negotiate and strike a pretty deal in September. The improvements to your routine have you looking fantastic in November. Expect family additions in January. Invest in May. Taurus and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 6, 36 and 39.
