Decrepit Sterling loses its insurance

The former hotel is in poor condition, Tri-State General tells the county controller. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

WASHINGTON – After the House GOP-crafted debt ceiling bill passed Friday evening, Republican U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta of Hazleton said Friday was “day one” of changing the way Washington works. “Today I voted for a plan with real solutions that restores spending discipline to Washington,” Barletta said. But Democrats and their allies are attacking Barletta for supporting House GOP leaders’ plans to slash federal spending in exchange for raising the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling. A liberal group and labor unions are airing TV ads on Wilkes-Barre-area stations charging that “Social Security, military pay, veteran benefits and other payments

A Maryland company is yanking its insurance coverage of the landmark Hotel Sterling because of the poor condition of the structure, according to a cancellation notice received by the Luzerne County Controller’s Office Friday.

The nonprofit is run by volunteers, and the $6 million has been spent, largely to demolish an attached structure, remove environmental hazards and to make the parcel bigger. County commissioners have rejected CityVest’s request to take over the project and determine whether the 113-year-old structure will be fully or partially saved or demolished. Commissioners agreed to try to help fund some of the estimated $1 million demolition cost, but they’ve made it clear the city would have

Dems kill GOP leader’s debt plan By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent

Tropical Storm Don teases a dry Texas Residents’ fears are eased as the one-time hurricane becomes a rainstorm.

By CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN Associated Press

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas — In the end, Tropical Storm Don was little more than summer thunderstorms. Some scattered showers were expected to linger over parts of South Texas, but the area’s best hope for substantial rain in months collapsed on approach Friday evening, drizzling the area with less than an inch of rain and strong breezes. Officially the center of Don remained just off the Texas coast at 8:40 p.m. CDT Friday, but at that point it was little more than a low pressure system, said Lixion Avila, a senior hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center. “It’s a very weak system,” Avila said. “It doesn’t matter whether it makes landfall.” Since Don never became a hurricane, the center would not release a special landfall advisory. Its next scheduled update was scheduled for 10 p.m. CDT. The cluster of storms was centered south of Baffin Bay in a sparsely populated area of ranch

lands. Cotton growers who scrambled to harvest in recent days, but still left the bulk of their fluffy bolls in the field could breathe a sigh of relief since National Weather Service stations in Corpus Christi and Brownsville said rainfall was about a 1⁄2 inch in most areas. For other farmers and ranchers, it will be back to watching the skies longingly for rain. “It was not nearly as much rainfall or wind as originally forecast,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Joseph Tomaselli. “It would have badly damaged the cotton crop.” The strongest winds recorded were about 36 mph at an offshore buoy, he said. Onshore, meteorologist Lara Keys in the service’s Corpus Christi office said winds gusted to 23 mph. “It hit dry air and sheared and it tore it apart really,” Keys said. Almost all of Texas is in extreme drought, and even Don’s projected few inches of rain wouldn’t have cured that. “It was somewhat of a dud,” said Carlos Cascos, the top elected official in Cameron County at Texas’ southernmost tip.

Luzerne County Judges Van Jura, Cosgrove said they applied for U.S. District judgeships

County jurists eye federal bench

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

Luzerne County Judges Joseph Van Jura and Joseph Cosgrove confirmed they are among the applicants seeking appointment to three open seats on the federal judiciary. The judges, whose appointments to the Luzerne County bench will expire in December, made application for the feder-

Casey, D-Scranton and Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville. The application is the second for Cosgrove. He applied in 2010, but failed to garner a recommendation from Casey and then-Sen. Arlen Specter. The senators instead recommended Cosgrove Van Jura attorney Robert Mariani of al seats to a 20-member review Scranton and two other Scranpanel that was established in ton attorneys to President BaApril by U.S. Sens.

Obama nominated Mariani in January. He was approved last week by the Senate’s Judiciary Committee and is now awaiting the vote of the full Senate. Cosgrove cited his experience in federal law in deciding to re-submit his application. “I have extensive experience in litigation, a good deal of that at the federal level. I taught

constitutional law for more than 20 years and now have a year and half trial judge experience. I’m asking to be considered again for nomination,” Cosgrove said. Van Jura confirmed he is seeking a federal judgeship, but declined to comment further. Van Jura and Cosgrove were See SEATS, Page 4A

Main break affects area

Pennsylvania American Water repaired a broken 12-inch water main on Coal Street around 10:20 p.m. Friday. The break occurred earlier in the afternoon and affected a wide coverage area for the utility. The main was located in the area damaged by flash flooding on July 3. The break resulted in no water service, low pressure and cloudy water in the following areas: Wilkes-Barre in the Heights section and South WilkesBarre; Sugar Notch; Plymouth; Plymouth Township; Larksville; Hanover Township; and Edwardsville. Pennsylvania American had set up water tankers at the armory on Main Street, Plymouth, the Wyoming Valley West Middle School on State Street, Larksville, and Holy Cross Church, Main Street, Buttonwood Section of Hanover Township, for customers affected by the break.

Court upholds sentence

The state Superior Court has upheld the 18- to 40-year prison sentence of a Wilkes-Barre woman who admitted to fatally stabbing another woman in a fight over a bank access card. Shannon Chamberlain pleaded guilty in March 2010 to third degree murder for causing the death of Sandra White. Police said Chamberlain stabbed White in the back during an altercation on April 18, 2009. Luzerne County Judge David Lupas sentenced Chamberlain in June 2010. She appealed, arguing the sentence was overly harsh because Lupas did not adequately consider psychological evidence and the fact she had pleaded Lupas guilty. In an opinion supporting the sentence, Lupas noted Chamberlain had an extensive criminal history. He said the “psychological evidence” Chamberlain referenced was merely a recommendation of a defense expert that she be sentenced to a term of imprisonment that would give her the chance of being paroled in middle age because that would motivate her to take part in rehabilitative programs while in prison. The Superior Court upheld the sentence in a ruling issued July 22. WILKES-BARRE

More mosquitoes positive

The state Department of Environmental Protection said that three more mosquitoes have tested positive for the West Nile Virus in Luzerne County and they were all trapped in Wilkes-Barre on July 28 and 29.

SCRANTON – Mayor Chris Doherty announced the elimination of eight firefighters and 13 police officers on Friday as the city faces “dire economic circumstances.” Cuts are effective on Aug. 29. After several months of allowing a budget proposed and passed by Scranton City Council to work its course, Doherty said Friday that the fiscal plan wasn’t working. “I vetoed that budget because I had many concerns about the revenue stream that was coming in,” he said. Specifically, council reduced real estate taxes by 10.55 percent and business privilege and mercantile taxes by 25 percent, producing a shortfall of $2 million in revenue, according to Doherty. The city will save approximately $225,000 this year from the reductions in police and fire staff. In addition, an ad- See SCRANTON, Page 4A

Feds: 27 rifles stolen from military base The Associated Press

FORT IRWIN, Calif. — Federal officials say more than two dozen firearms have been stolen from a Southern California military base. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says in a statement Friday that 26 AK-74 assault rifles and one Dragunov sniper rifle were stolen from a supply warehouse at Fort Irwin in San Bernardino County on July 15. ATF spokesman Special Agent

Christian Hoffman says arrests have been made and one rifle has been recovered, but the agency is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to more arrests. Hoffman could not say how many arrests have been made, whether those arrested were military or civilian or what a motive may have been. He referred those questions to military officials. Messages left late Friday for an Army spokesman were not immediately returned.

SEATS appointed to the Luzerne County bench in 2010 to fill the unexpired terms of two former county judges who pleaded guilty to corruption charges. Van Jura filled the seat of Michael Toole, while Cosgrove filled Mark Ciavarella’s seat. Both judges considered running for the full, 10-year terms for those seats that are up for election in November. They bowed out after questions arose regarding whether they had reneged on a promise not to seek the seats. Van Jura and Cosgrove are hoping to fill two of the three seats in the federal court’s middle district that were left vacant when judges Richard Caputo and James Munley became senior judges and Thomas Vanaskie accepted an appointment as with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Mariani’s unanimous approval by the Senate Judiciary committee virtually assures he will be appointed to one of the seats. The race for the other two remains open, however. Two other attorneys who previously sought appointment, Barry Dyller of Wilkes-Barre and Joseph Musto of Pittston, said they decided not to resubmit their names. Musto, 67, said he decided to opt out because of his age and the length of time involved in the nominating and confirmation process. “The process is so long. You go through a screening, then the nomination and confirmation process. I realized at my age it was not logical for me to pursue it at this point,” he said. Dyller said he decided he wanted to continue to focus on his private practice. “I have an extremely busy private practice. I don’t want to give up my practice or the civil rights and other litigation work I do,” he said. The deadline to apply for the open seats was July 15. The identity and number of applicants for the judicial seats positions has not been publicly released. It could not be determined when the nomination review panels created by Casey and Toomey will begin interviewing applicants. Once the committees make their recommendations, the Senators will decide which persons they wish to recommend to President Obama. That person would then go before the Senate for confirmation.

Edwards tape case delayed

MOGADISHU, Somalia — African Union and Somali forces traded barrages of fire at a new front line in Mogadishu on Friday, as AU forces gained new territory. The country’s president appealed for more international aid, saying the government can’t feed all the overwhelming number of Somalis suffering from famine. The African Union military force fears that al-Shabab militants may try to attack the camps that now house tens of thousands of famine refugees in the Somali capital, disrupting the distribution of food aid. A new offensive to push the militant front line farther back from the camps began Thursday.

A battlefield commander, Col. Paul Lokech, told The Associated Press on a visit near the front line Friday that a Pakistani fighter was commanding the alShabab troops battling his forces nearby, and that the militants were “active.” Al-Shabab counts hundreds of foreign fighters among its ranks. Speaking of the Pakistani, Lokech said: “Don’t worry, I’ll get him.” Mortar fire and guns rang out nearby, as the militants put up more resistance than the AU forces had expected. “They’re worried about the ground they’ve lost,” Lokech said. The African Union and Somali troops have been fighting a concerted offensive against al-Shabab all year, and have gained a large swath of new territory in Mogadishu. But the fight took on a new importance in recent days as tens of thousands of famine refugees began squatting in squalid, hunger-filled refugee camps here. President Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed

said Friday that his government has created several refugee camps, but that his country needs urgent support because it can’t support the level of aid that is needed. Ahmed also said the military has weakened al-Shabab, and that “soon they will be defeated.”

The government spokesman went even further, saying the famine response from aid agencies “is too slow” and that the crisis is even more severe than the U.N. has said. He noted that diseases are spreading through the camps, including measles.

wo legal cases involving former presidential candidate John EdT wards are beginning to seem like different versions of the same play, with overlapping plots, characters and action — but running simultaneously on separate stages. The increasingly convoluted drama led a veteran judge on Friday to delay a civil trial involving a sex tape purportedly featuring the former U.S. senator until March 2012. The trial had previously been scheduled to begin Oct. 10, the same month that Edwards is due to go on trial on charges of breaking campaign finance laws. Prosecutors accuse him of using political contributions to cover up the affair that’s also at the heart of the lawsuit, though Edwards denies the criminal charges.

Priests to be tried together

A monsignor who is the only U.S. church official ever charged with transferring pedophile priests to unsuspecting parishes will be tried alongside four priests accused of rape, a judge ruled Friday. Common Pleas Judge Lillian Ransom denied most of the pretrial requests made by Monsignor William Lynn, two current priests, a former priest and a former Catholic schoolteacher. The men wanted their cases to be tried separately and asked for many of the charges against them to be dismissed. Lynn, 60, the lynchpin of the case, is charged with conspiracy and child endangerment for allegedly transferring priests he believed to be pedophiles. Lynn, who served as secretary of clergy from 1992 to 2004 under former Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, is the only U.S. church official ever charged in the sex-abuse scandal for his administrative actions.

Ultraconservative Muslims join protesters at rally in Egypt By BEN HUBBARD Associated Press

CAIRO — Ultraconservative Muslims turned out in force Friday as tens of thousands filled Cairo’s central Tahrir Square in a rally marked by a growing rift in the protest movement. South of the capital, gunmen fired on a car carrying Christians, killing two. While the motive was unknown, similar events have sparked religious violence in the past. In one of the largest crowds to fill the square since the popular uprising that ousted President Hos-

ni Mubarak in February, Salafis chanted for the implementation of strict Islamic law — spurring accusations that they violated an agreement to keep the rally free from divisive issues. The decision by the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s best organized political force, and other Islamist groups to participate significantly boosted the turnout.

WASHINGTON — Thirty-six years after Richard Nixon testified to a grand jury about the Watergate break-in that drove him from office, a federal judge on Friday ordered the secret transcript made public. But the 297 pages of testimony won’t be available immediately, because the government gets time to decide whether to appeal. The Obama administration opposed the transcript’s re- Nixon lease, chiefly to protect the privacy of people discussed during the ex-president’s testimony who are still alive. Nevertheless, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth agreed with historians who sued for release of the documents that the historical significance outweighs arguments for secrecy, because the investigations are long over and Nixon has been dead17 years. Nixon was interviewed behind closed doors near his California home for11hours over two days in June1975,10 months after resigning the presidency. Two grand jurors were flown in and the transcript was read to the rest of the panel sitting back in Washington. It was the first time a former U.S. president testified before a grand jury — Bill Clinton became the first sitting president to do so during the Monica Lewinsky investigation. At the time of his testimony, Nixon could not be prosecuted for conduct related to Watergate because he had been pardoned by President Gerald Ford. Ten days after Nixon testified, the grand jury was dismissed without making any indictments based on what he told them. The historians say the testimony could address ongoing debate over Nixon’s knowledge of the break-in at Democratic party headquarters at the Watergate complex and his role in the coverup. Justice Department spokesman Charles Miller said Friday that government attorneys were reviewing the ruling.

The Libyan rebels’ military commander was killed by his comrades while in custody after he was arrested by the opposition’s leadership on suspicion of treason, witnesses said Friday, in a sign of disarray that posed a major setback for the movement battling Moammar Gadhafi. The slaying of Abdel-Fattah Younis raised fear and uncertainty in Benghazi, the de facto rebel capital. At the graveside, Younis’ son, Ashraf, broke down, crying and screaming as they lowered the body into the ground and — in a startling and risky display in a city that was the first to shed Gadhafi’s rule nearly six months ago — pleaded hysterically for the return of the Libyan leader to bring stability. Two weeks ago, 32 nations including the U.S. made a major commitment by formally recognizing the opposition as the country’s legitimate government — a significant boost after many allies hesitated in part because the rebels, a mix of tribes and factions, were largely an unknown quantity.

U.S. weighing payment priorities

It seems politically certain that active-duty members of the military would be paid. By TOM RAUM Associated Press

WASHINGTON — If the government can’t pay all its bills come Wednesday, odds are it will pay bondholders. Social Security and Medicare recipients will be high on the must-pay list, too. Likely losers: federal workers in jobs deemed non-essential, private contractors and state and local governments. It seems politically certain that active-duty members of the military would be paid, but there are no guarantees as the government

would be in jeopardy if America defaults� Aug. 2 on its debt obligations, and that Barletta and other House Republicans are refusing to compromise with Senate Democrats and President Obama in the standoff. For his part, Barletta said Thursday that he and many other House Republicans have already reached out in an attempt to compromise. Saying that calls to his office from his Northeastern Pennsylvania constituents indicate that Americans want the “bickering� to stop in Washington, Barletta said that while GOP House Speaker John Boehner’s plan “is far from perfect, it accommodates the priorities of the people sitting on both sides of the table, both sides of the aisle and both sides of the Capitol.� Meanwhile, Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Marino of Lycoming Township, who unlike Barletta does not have an announced opponent for 2012 yet, also voted in favor of the Boehner plan, after keeping his decision to himself right up until the final vote. Marino said the measure contains “many of the provisions that my constituents have been pushing for while keeping America from defaulting on its debt.� Marino noted there are no tax increases in the bill and he praised the decision to include the balanced budget in the House bill. The anti-Barletta ads on three stations – WBRE-TV, WOLF-TV and WNEP-TV – are being paid for by the liberal group Americans United for Change and by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Service Employees International Union, and the National Education Association. They are part of a string of ads aimed at targeted GOP lawmakers around the country. Meanwhile, Democrat William Vinsko, a Wilkes-Barre attorney who says he will run against Barletta next year, released a statement saying that the House Republicans’ “radical right-wing agenda is preventing action, prolonging unnecessary debate and hurting our people. “Being a Northeast Pennsylvania congressman means putting the people of Northeast Pennsylvania first and not following extremist party lines, or wasting time on legislation that has no possibility of becoming law,� Vinsko said. In response, Barletta spokesman Shawn Kelly said that, “Rep. Barletta spoke about civility and compromise on the House floor on Thursday, he’s pointed out that the president is the one who decides whether or not Social Security checks and other benefit checks get sent out, and he’s making the tough decisions to get America back on the right track.� The attacks came against a backdrop of House Speaker John Boehner failing Thursday to corral enough votes from his own GOP caucus to pass his plan to raise the debt ceiling by $900 billion, good for about six months, in exchange for spending cuts of about $917 billion over the next decade. The revised Boehner plan finally was put to a vote Friday evening, passing 218-210.

decides which of its 80 million monthly payments to make and which to set aside. Since the U.S. now borrows slightly over 40 cents for every dollar it spends, a failure by Congress to increase the debt ceiling above the $14.3 trillion limit suggests the government could renege on more than 40 percent of its current obligations. Just five days before the Treasury begins running out of cash to pay all its bills, Congress remained deadlocked over plans to both raise the debt limit and trim federal spending. President Barack Obama warned anew that the credit status and financial credibility of the United States stand in severe jeopardy. “There are plenty of ways out of

You just can’t borrow.� Of today’s $14.3 trillion national debt — the accumulation of decades of deficit spending — some $9.7 trillion is financed through the sale of Treasury bonds, bills and notes to the public.

Balanced budget a divisive issue

Republicans are pushing for an amendment; Democrats, others see problems looming. By ALAN FRAM Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget is the best way to force dawdling politicians to finally mop up the record red ink plaguing Washington. Or it is snake oil that would let those same politicians pose as serious deficit warriors while, as always, leaving the real work for later. Either way, the proposal — a Washington staple for decades that as usual faces long odds for passage — took center stage Friday as a potent vote-getting device for conservatives. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, used it to swing GOP support behind his stalled debt bill as the House continued its epic clash with President Barack Obama and the Democratic-run Senate over federal borrowing and spending. The idea is near-sacred dogma for many of the House’s 87 GOP freshmen and the many conservative, tea party-backed Republican lawmakers. Balancing the budget was a cornerstone of many of their congressional campaigns last year, and the push for a constitutional amendment requiring balance has become emblematic of their legislative goal of shrinking government. “You have to have something that sets forth a structure that requires us to be financially responsible,� said Rep. Mo

must approve a balanced budgetamendment to the Constitution and send it to the states for ratification. That marked a concession to tea party-backed conservatives and others in the rank and file who had thwarted House Speaker John Boehner’s attempt to pass the bill Thursday night. “Today we have a chance to end this debt limit crisis,� Boehner declared, his endgame strategy upended by rebels within his own party. But the changes he made to the House GOP bill further alienated Democrats. And they complicated prospects of a compromise that could clear both houses and win Obama’s signature by next Tuesday’s deadline. At the other end of the Capitol, Senate Democrats rejected the measure without so much as a debate. The vote was 59-41, with all Democrats, two independents and six Republicans joining in opposition. Moments later, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., unveiled an alternative that would cut spending by $2.4 trillion and raise the debt limit by the same amount, enough to meet Obama’s terms that it tide the Treasury over until 2013. Reid invited Republicans to suggest changes, saying, “This is likely our last chance to save this nation from default.� The Senate GOP leader, Mitch

Brooks, R-Ala., one of several Republicans who pledged to back Boehner’s bill on Friday because of the leadership’s embrace of the amendment. Many Democrats and outside budget analysts say the amendment would leave lawmakers with the same painful decisions they usually avoid making today — which programs to cut or taxes to raise. They say it would make it harder for the government to help avoid recessions by pumping money into the economy, which usually causes red ink. And it leaves unanswered how the balanced budget re-

Many budget experts warn that the nation’s fiscal problems are too severe to await enactment of a balanced budget amendment. Current versions of the amendment would not take effect for at least six years, a provision designed to give lawmakers time to adjust.

quirement would be enforced should a Congress and president disagree on how to do it. “It is deeply flawed,� Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., said Friday. Supporters also argue that Washington should do no less than the states, all but a handful of which have balanced budget requirements. Critics counter that states face a far easier burden, since they don’t wage wars or support the huge Social Security or Medicare benefit programs, and can also rely on federal aid.

Economist issuing cutback warning

U.S. Chamber of Commerce calls on lawmakers to be mindful of the weak economy. By KEVIN G. HALL McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers trying to reach a deal on spending cuts in order to raise the nation’s debt ceiling risk causing serious economic harm if they cut government programs too much in the near term, economists warn. The U.S. economy grew at an anemic 1.3 percent rate from April to June, the Commerce Department reported Friday. It also revised downward the growth rate over the first three months of 2011 to just 0.4 percent.

That means, he said, that “the stakes on the debt limit debate ... are that much higher. With growth rates this low, even a small negative impact resulting from failure to increase the debt ceiling and defaulting on our obligations could turn the economy back into a recession.� While Republicans in the House of Representatives capture headlines by demanding steep spending cuts, the version proposed by Senate Democrats actually would thwart economic growth potentially more, according to two economic research groups.

Who’s who in the debt debate

Various factions within the Republic-led House of Representatives and Democrat-led Senate impact the success or failure of any major piece of legislation that moves through Congress. These factions are influencing the debate over raising the debt limit and progress toward a final vote.

But the Ohio Republican drew applause from his rank and file when he said the House, alone, had advanced legislation to cut deficits, and that he had “stuck his neck out� in recent weeks in hopes of concluding a sweeping deficit reduction deal with Obama. Boehner’s measure would provide a quick $900 billion increase in borrowing authority — essential for the U.S. to keep paying all its bills after next Tuesday — and

$917 billion in spending cuts. After the bill’s latest alteration, any future increases in the debt limit would be contingent on Congress approving the constitutional amendment and sending it to the states for ratification. “With conservatives insisting on the addition of a balancedbudget amendment requirement, Speaker Boehner’s bill will now cut, cap and balance� federal spending, said Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona as Friday’s scheduled vote approached. The White House called the bill a non-starter. Press secretary Jay Carney issued a statement that called it a “political exercise� and said congressional leaders should turn their efforts to a com-

promise that Obama can sign by Tuesday. The developments occurred one day after Boehner was forced to postpone a vote in the House for fear the earlier version of his measure would suffer a defeat. But by forcing a delay the conservative rebels upended the leadership’s strategy of making their bill the only one that could clear Congress before a default and win Obama’s reluctant signature. “Everybody acknowledges that because of the dust-up yesterday we’ve lost some leverage,� said Rep. Steven LaTourette, ROhio, an ally of the speaker. The rebels said they were more worried about stemming the nation’s steady rise of red ink.

UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. — Chuck Berry, the man called the Father of Rock ’n’ Roll, blew kisses at the crowd that joined him Friday morning for the dedication of a statue in his honor in the Delmar Loop section of suburban St. Louis. “I don’t know how to speak ... I can sing a little a bit,” Berry shyly told his audience. “I’m going to say thank you again, thank you, and I love you all.” Berry, 84, has been celeBerry brated at the Kennedy Center by President Bill Clinton. His music was shot into space as representative of the best of our culture. But his son Charles Edward Berry Jr. said Friday’s honor was the best ever because it’s in St. Louis, where Berry Sr. grew up and still lives. “He has gotten a lot of awards over the years but always the most special ones are in St. Louis,” Berry Jr. said. “Most of my dad’s sisters and brothers, and his children and grandchildren are here, and my Mom, that’s the best.” The 8-foot statue by sculptor Harry Weber is at 6555 Delmar Boulevard, across Delmar from Blueberry Hill, a club and restaurant where Berry still performs monthly to sold-out crowds. At the ceremony, Berry

thanked the crowd, estimated at 600, for enduring the heat to be with him. “Believe me, it’s an honor just to have you walk by in the hot sun ... more or less stand and honor (me),” he said. After he spoke, the crowd broke into singing “Johnny B. Goode,” a Berry signature song. Blueberry Hill owner Joe Edwards, who with KMOX Radio’s Charlie Brennan helped raise money for the statue, introduced the man of the hour. Edwards said: “Welcome to The Loop in St. Louis, Missouri, in the United States of America, in the Solar System in the Milky Way Galaxy. “The reason I greet you that way is that the man I am about to introduce had his song, ’Johnny B. Goode’ chosen to be put on copper records aboard the Voyager space probes, launched into outer space in 1977 to reach out to the universe with the best of

our culture.” Weber, the sculptor, later said: “Chuck Berry is a legend that ...will last as long as human beings find music to be a necessary part of their existence ... I am truly grateful to have had this chance”&I hope I have done it justice.” Taped tributes of congratulations were played from Little Richard, Elvis Costello, Michael McDonald, Merle Haggard and Joe Perry of Aerosmith. After the ceremony more than 100 people went into Blueberry Hill for a reception. Berry signed autographs with customary modesty and with his wife, Themetta Berry, at his side. The new Ackert Plaza where the statue is located features illuminated stainless-steel walls with laser-engraved musical notes. A blue-light LED system in the interior of the walls will illuminate the melody of “Johnny B. Goode.”

‘Dukes of Hazzard’ sheriff sues for royalties James Best, 85, who played the bumbling lawman, is still active in show business.

James Best, a member of the cast of television’s ‘The Dukes of Hazzard,’ signs a toy guitar during the DukesFest 2004, July 31, 2004, in Bristol, Tenn. Best played Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane on ‘Dukes of Hazzard.’

By MARK WASHBURN and MARIA DAVID McClatchy Newspapers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane on "The Dukes of Hazzard" — also known as character actor James Best of Hickory, N.C. — filed suit this week seeking back payments from Time Warner for using his image on merchandise ranging from Christmas ornaments to trash cans. Best played the bumbling lawman constantly in pursuit of Luke and Bo Duke and their Dodge Charger "General Lee" on the popular comedy that ran on CBS from 1979 to 1985. Best, who turned 85 on Tuesday, moved to Hickory about five years ago and is still active in show business. In the lawsuit, filed here in federal court against Time Warner and Warner Brothers Entertainment, Best said under his 1978 contract, he is entitled to 5 percent of royalties for "Dukes of Hazzard" merchandise that bears Sheriff Coltrane’s likeness. In the 32 years since the se-

AP FILE PHOTO

ries first aired, Best has received about $175,000 in royalties. "Those payments are simply not consistent with this volume of merchandise sales over the last three decades," Best’s attorney, Charles Oswald of Hickory, said Friday. In the suit, Best said Warner Brothers consistently underestimated the royalties, and he may be due $5 million to $25 million or more for the early years of the show alone. In letters to Best cited in the suit, Warner said his share was significantly less. Scott Rowe, senior vice president of communications for Warner Brothers, said Friday

Patricia J. Reese July 27, 2011 atricia J. Reese, 60, of Plymouth, died Wednesday, July 27, 2011, P at Hospice Community Care Unit,

Wilkes-Barre. Born in Wilkes-Barre, she was a daughter of Thomas J. Reese and the late Jean Hochreiter Reese. She graduated from Wyoming Valley West High School and attended Temple University. Patricia had resided in Philadelphia for 31 years before moving back to the Wyoming Valley. Prior to retirement, she was employed as a manager by Verizon and AT&T for 30 years. She enjoyed traveling and her 15 summers at Long Beach Island, N.J. She loved animals, especially her cat Muskee, and was an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan. Surviving are her sister, Susan L. Reese, Bloomsburg; uncle Josef Reese; cousins; numerous friends; and her father’s current wife, Mary Jane. Funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday from the Hugh B. Hughes & Son Inc. Funeral Home, 1044 Wyoming Ave., Forty Fort. The interment will be in Chapel Lawn Memorial Park, Dallas. Friends may

call from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions, if desired, can be made to the Animal Resource Center, 301-A Boone Road, Bloomsburg, PA 17815.

the studio would have no comment. Best could not be reached Friday. "Dukes of Hazzard" was involved in another high-profile royalties case in 1982. Lead actors Tom Wopat and John Schneider, playing the cousins who weekly outwitted Hazzard County political strongman Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg, sued the studio claiming they were owed substantial sums for merchandizing sales. They sat out the fourth year of the series — the storyline had Luke and Bo running off to race for NASCAR. Two cousins took their place. Ratings plunged, the dispute was settled and Wopat and Schneider returned for the fifth season. Best said in the suit that Warner ignored for 22 years his requests for an accounting of the merchandizing sales. Fans of the program would remember Flash, a molassespaced basset hound who accompanied Sheriff Coltrane on patrol. Best rescued the dog from a pound and brought it to the set at the beginning of the third season, suggesting the sheriff needed a partner. Producers didn’t like the dog, but she got a role anyway. In the suit, Best said he holds a 50 percent ownership interest in the character and is due payment for her royalties, too.

The Domestic Violence Service Center, a United Way member agency, and the Weekender teamed up to host the sixth annual Women Who Rock event on Thursday at the River Street Jazz Café in Plains Township. Last year, the DVSC provided services to more than 2,000 victims of domestic violence and emergency shelter to 244 women and children in Luzerne and Carbon counties.

Candy’s Place sponsored a fashion show at the Woodlands Inn & Resort in Plains Township last Sunday. Nearly 250 people attended the event to benefit the cancer resource center in Forty Fort. The second annual fundraiser raised at least $6,000. Many of the models who were in the show are cancer survivors or have a family member who has battled the disease.

Norway mourns 77 victims of massacre By IAN MacDOUGALL and BJOERN H. AMLAND Associated Press

OSLO, Norway — Norway began burying the dead on Friday, a week after an anti-Muslim extremist killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage. Mourners of all ages vowed they would not let the massacre threaten their nation’s openness and democracy. An 18-year-old Muslim girl was the first victim to be laid to rest since the gunman opened fire at a political youth camp and bombed the government headquarters in Oslo. After a funeral service in the Nesodden church outside the capital, Bano Rashid, a Kurdish immigrant from Iraq, was buried in a Muslim rite. Sobbing youth accompanied her coffin, which was draped in a Kurdish flag. The attack will “not destroy Norway’s commitment to democracy, tolerance and fighting racism,” Labor Party youth-wing leader Eskil Pedersen said at a memorial service in Oslo.

thorities had underestimated extremist dangers in Norway. At Friday’s memorial service in Oslo at the assembly hall of the “People’s House,” a community center for Norway’s labor movement, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said: “Today it is one week since Norway was hit by evil.” The bullets struck dozens of members of the youth faction of his Labor Party, but they were aimed at the entire nation, Stoltenberg said, on a stage adorned with red roses, the symbol of his party.

KETCHIKAN, Alaska — A California taxidermist has earned a rare place in pop history. Sergio Vigalato preserved Lady Gaga’s now-famous raw-meat dress for display in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. The project has prompted a swarm of media interest in the 66-year-old former Southeast Alaska charter boat skipper who’s originally

contacted by the museum about preserving the dress that Lady Gaga wore at the September 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Vigalato was unaware of the dress or the artist when reached two months after the show. But he agreed to the project anyway. The ensemble, which Lady Gaga said was a statement about equality, arrived at his shop frozen and decomposing. He restored it over the next three and a half months, and the dress went on display in June.

2011 sees big decline in arrests for DUI

Those who are arrested for their second or subsequent DUI offense, is equal to the state average. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

The number of drunken driving arrests in Luzerne County has decreased substantially during the first seven months in 2011 compared to the same time last year, according to the state police Uniform Crime Report. Overall, police agencies in Luzerne County made 445 DUI arrests from January 1 through July 29, a significant drop of nearly 31 percent from the 643 arrests in the first seven months in 2010. While statistics show a decline, Dallas Township Police Chief Robert Jolley said there are on average 10 drivers processed on evidence of drunken driving at the Luzerne County DUI Processing Center every Friday and Saturday night. The DUI Processing Center is located within Wilkes-Barre Police Headquarters and is open only on those two nights. Jolley, who coordinates the processing center, said the recidivism rate of DUI offenders, those who are arrested for their second or subseSENTENCES quent DUI ofFA L L O F F fense, is equal to the state avLuzerne County erage. sentences imposed for driving under the The state avinfluence, according erage of repeat to the Pennsylvania DUI arrests Commission on Senwas 27.3 pertencing annual recent in 2009, ports. according to 2009: 615 latest statistics 2008: 788 available by 2007: 621 2006: 647 the court re2005: 579 porting network monitored by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. In 2008, the DUI recidivism rate was 26.7 percent, and in 2007 the rate was 29.8 percent. “There are some that when you look up their record, we find out we dealt with them before,” Jolley said. “We’ll learn they’ve been processed through the center or they were arrested in another county. We do see people a second and sometimes a third time.” In June, Jeffrey Scott Nenstiel, of Mountain Top, was charged with his ninth DUI offense after Hazleton police alleged he was intoxicated while driving a vehicle, according to the criminal complaint. A review of Luzerne County court records turned up five drunken-driving cases for Nenstiel, including two separate charges for driving with a suspended license, since 1992. A man in Pittsburgh is believed to have accumulated 13 DUI arrests, which is thought to be the most for one person in Pennsylvania, according to the PA DUI Association. Four other people who have prior DUI convictions have been charged on a DUI offense in Luzerne County since January, according to arrest records and The Times Leader archives. Most recently, Kingston police on Wednesday charged Anthony Trotta, of Nanticoke, with drunken-driving after he was spotted passing through a red traffic signal. Court records show it was Trotta’s fourth DUI arrest within 18 months. There is a bright side to the public danger of drunken driving. “We’re seeing more designated drivers especially those of college-age,” Jolley said. “We’ll do a portable breath test on the driver and the readings will come back with all zeroes. That’s what we want to see.”

Memory of a 1918 tragedy is strong as Wyoming’s public safety annex is dedicated. By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

WYOMING – It was West Wyoming’s turn Friday to hold the annual memorial for two police chiefs killed in the line of duty in 1918, but with a new building named after one of the officers, the ceremony was moved to Wyoming. Approximately 100 people gathered along Wyoming Avenue for the dedication of the Chief Edward Brennan Public Safety Annex. The two-story, 3,200-square foot building was added on to the borough’s existing garage and replaced the old building from 1901 that housed the municipal offices. Brennan’s 98-year-old niece, Florence Jumper of Wyoming cut the ribbon for the building and received a flag from the U.S. Marines who played taps and fired a

volley to honor the fallen officers. “I’ll keep that. That’s really something to have,” said Jumper from her wheelchair. She was 5 at the time her uncle was killed and was pleased to be able to attend the dedication. “I know my mother would be very happy to know that I got here,” she said. Her mother and Brennan were sister and brother. Ninety-three years ago to the day Brennan was gunned down on First Street by the same man who earlier shot Chief Ralph Daley of West Wyoming near West Eighth Street and Shoemaker. Daley responded to a report of a disorderly group of men and went there with the intent to tell them to “move on,” said Wyoming Mayor Robert Boyer. But, the mayor said, one of the men reached for a weapon and as Daley attempted to defend himself, was shot point blank and died within minutes. Brennan, who was off-duty and

unarmed, later confronted the shooter and was shot dead. The gunman was apprehended by Pennsylvania State Police officers, but he was acquitted of the murders due to insufficient evidence. The annex named after Brennan houses the police department on the first floor and a regional training center for police, fire and emergency medical service personnel on the second floor. A grant from the local share of gambling revenues from the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino in Plains Township paid the $600,000 construction cost. Wyoming borough Treasurer Marcella Starr credited Boyer with doing the research that secured the grant money sought by municipalities for various public safety and economic development projects. “Had he just asked for a PETE G. WILCOX/THE TIMES LEADER police station, this building would not be here today,” Florence Jumper, 98, the niece of the late Wyoming Police she said.

Eddie Pashinski’s bill proposes tax on Marcellus Shale natural gas extraction By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

HARRISBURG – State Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-WilkesBarre, is circulating a new bill proposing a tax on Marcellus Shale natural gas extraction. But unlike other severance tax proposals, Pashinski’s bill does not dictate how revenue from the tax would be divided. It would immediately impose a tax, but would place the tax revenue in a lock-box until legislators can determine how to divvy it up. “We’ve been arguing this severance tax issue for three years,” Pashinski said. “So for three years, not one dime has gone into the public coffers, and

the argument both on the floor and in committee has been one legislator using some distribution aspect as a reason not to vote for an extraction tax.” For example, Pashinski said representatives of communities with active gas drilling oppose bills that don’t return enough tax revenue their communities, while environmentally-minded legislators oppose bills that don’t devote enough to environmental protection. “You could never get enough of a consensus in order to pass the legislation,” Pashinski said.

“Therefore, my proposal is a purely common sense proposal. It just sets a standard reasonable extraction tax on the Marcellus Shale gas industry and it puts that money in a restricted, interest-bearing account.” The bill, currently in draft form, would impose a tax of 5 percent of the value of each 1,000 cubic feet to natural gas extracted, plus 4.6 cents per 1,000 cubic feet. Those figures are nearly identical to the rates former Gov. Ed Rendell proposed in early 2009 – 5 percent plus 4.7 cents per 1,000 cubic feet – and which eventually failed to pass the state legislature. Rendell later revised those rates as a compromise with Re-

publican legislators, and the state House in October passed a 39-cent tax on every 1,000 cubic feet of gas extracted. But the Senate allowed the 2010 legislative session to expire without adopting a tax. Pashinski said the Senate failed to pass the tax largely because legislators couldn’t agree how to divide revenue. Gov. Tom Corbett opposes a tax on natural gas extraction and has said previously he would veto a gas-tax bill if passed. The Governor’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission in its report released last week recommended the state assess local impact fees against the gas industry, but not a severance

John Yudichak is co-sponsoring a severance tax bill in the state Senate, which proposes an initial tax of 2 percent on the gross value of gas severed at the well head, increasing to 5 percent once the well has been in production for three years, and dropping back to 2 percent and then zero as a well’s production declines.

OTHER OPINION: OBAMA INITIATIVE

Good-food access a healthy effort

M

OST AMERICANS take well-stocked grocery stores and supermarkets for granted. Because accessibility to good and nutritious food is considered an essential part of American society, such stores are at the heart of most communities. Still, nearly 24 million Americans live in “food deserts,” lowincome areas where people have to travel more than a mile to the nearest full-service grocery. Food deserts can have an adverse effect on the health of children and young people. Although Americans are generally overweight, communities where access to fresh food, vegetables and fruit is problematic have higher-than-average obesity rates. An estimated 6.5 million children live in food deserts. That’s why providing incentives for grocery stores and supermarkets to locate in underserved communities has become an essential element of first lady Michelle Obama’s healthy foods/anti-obesity initiative.

In a ceremony at the White House last week, the first lady announced that as a result of a public-private Obama partnership, Wal-Mart, Walgreen and Supervalu will expand into urban and rural areas considered to be food deserts. Together, the retailers plan to open 1,500 stores that will provide not only thousands of jobs, but also healthier food options for 9.5 million people. Obama made the case for federal loans, grants and tax credits that encourage the construction of such stores and she applauded the Shop ’N Save in Ambridge for quadrupling the size of its produce section in two years. The store benefited from a 2009 state grant that was a small part of the $120 million Pennsylvania Fresh Food Financing Initiative that funded 88 similar projects across the state.

Hotel Sterling tells a loosey-goosey cautionary tale THE LUZERNE County Henhouse – er, Courthouse – already was abuzz with the usual cackle of clucking and strutting when Chicken Little shouted the startling alarm: “The Sterling is falling! The Sterling is falling!” “Slow down, Little fellow,” Leary Taxpayer said. “Didn’t you just tell us the outside of the building was relatively stable?” “We have to raze it!” Chicken Little replied. “It could collapse this winter!” “How can that be?” Leary asked. “We’ve given you more than $6 million to save the place.” “No time to explain,” Little bellowed. “The Sterling is falling! The Sterling is falling!” Forgive my cynicism, but it’s hard to read a recent letter from the Luzerne County commissioners regarding the former Sterling Hotel in downtown Wilkes-Barre without recalling the cautionary tale about the little fowl with the big claim. “We all agree that this is an urgent matter,” the commissioners wrote to Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton. “Studies indicate that there could be a potential collapse should the building endure another winter without substantial stabilization.” Nearly 10 years and more than $6 million trying to save the landmark, and now it’s ready to crumble under the weight of the next blizzard? If this isn’t a fairy tale, it should be.

MAIL BAG

MARK GUYDISH Quick, find a little Dutch boy to plug his finger into just the right crack in the wall. Maybe he can get us through to spring. Make no mistake, the report issued March 31 by the building owner, CityVest, was dire. “Vacant, stripped of every item that contributed to a memorable experience, the remaining shell is cold, damp and lifeless. … Stabilization and construction will be a perilous undertaking … Existing timber-framed roof has rotted beyond repair … Complete demolition of the interior floor systems and structure for health and safety reasons seems to be evident.” The report made a persuasive case for demolition. But much of this damage apparently is the result of failure to seal the building when CityVest first took ownership. The report offers extensive detail on recurring roof problems. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist, or even a homeowner, to know a leaking roof assures deterioration of everything under it. The question is this: Why did CityVest let the roof go? The March report made it sound as though nonprofit CityVest realized it had limited resources and decided to roll the dice. It spent minimal money on the roof and poured most of the funds into other site-preparation,

hoping the roof would hold up until a developer was found. The gamble failed, along with the roof, and the group’s efforts to save the Sterling actually assured its demise. It’s not the idea that the Sterling has deteriorated to the point of no return that’s hard to swallow; it’s the urgency. We were willing to spend years trying to preserve it and suddenly have only months to destroy it? Sounds like a scene from The Marx Brothers “A Night in Casablanca.” Groucho takes over as new hotel manager and tells the staff: “Well, we’ve got to speed things up. If a guest orders a three-minute egg, give it to him in two minutes. If he orders a two-minute egg, give it to him in one minute. And if he orders a one-minute egg, let him work it out for himself.” Which brings up another apropos cautionary children’s tale Stately Sterling sat on a lot Stately Sterling fell due to rot All the excuses from all of the men Couldn’t put public trust together again.

It’s not the idea that the Sterling has deteriorated to the point of no return that’s hard to swallow; it’s the urgency. We spent years trying to preserve it and suddenly have only months to destroy it?

ur U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, Pat Toomey, made statements that the debt ceiling is not a big deal. His suggestion was the government could pay Social Security and military payroll – apparently two of his favorites. Really? Is that a responsible approach? Has he been listening to the economic forecast concerning the impact of defaulting on our financial obligations? Do we really want to do this? I am getting tired of this simplistic and fantasy-filled view of the world. This antigovernment rhetoric. What does he dislike? The FBI, the National Weather Service, the Forest Service rangers who fight wildfires, the National Institutes of Health, retired federal employees who spent their careers serving the public? This is not a rational, adult approach. This is someone who seemingly is serving a narrow segment of our society. As a retired public servant, I resent deeply his remarks.

Why take Catholic Mass off regular television on weekends for shut-ins and people in nursing homes? It was slotted once on Saturday afternoon and once on Sunday – with each time slot different.

County Controller Walter Griffith said he contacted the insurer – Salisbury, Md.-based Tri-State General Insurance – to find out the reason for the cancellation, which takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 27. The cancellation notice says the building “does not fit the company guidelines even for a vacant building.” Griffith said a Tri-State repre-

gerly waited the next truck load of donations. Inside the warehouse, big, boxes, about the size of a box from a large appliance, were full of cans, jars, and boxes of noodles, cereal, and other items. One large box sitting next to an industrial scale contained 27 pounds of cereal from an earlier drop-off by Sallie Mae. All this food will be kept in Luzerne County and distributed to 25 “Emergency Food Networks,” including food pantries, shelters, and kitchens, such as “Domestic Violence, and Ruth’s Place, said Rick Kutz, director of the H. J. Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank, part of the Commission on Economic Opportunities. The groceries will last these facilities about two or three months, he said. “This is the second largest food drive for us,” Kutz said. “The first is held by the letter carriers.” He added the need for grocery items increases over the summer months. There is a higher demand on the food pantries because children are home from school.

“We are starting to see many senior citizens,” Kutz said. “They are concerned about what is happening in Washington and are looking to see what services are available.” The rising cost of food did not deter the donations. Making his second delivery, Dave Riley, facility supervisor from Sallie Mae in Hanover Township, said his company offered many incentives for employees to make a food or monetary donation. They offered employees, business causal days, gift baskets and much more, he said. “It just goes to show we have some very generous companies,” Winslow said.

sentative told him the company recently performed its own inspection of the property. “They determined it is not insurable based on the condition of the structure. The windows are open. There are holes in the roof,” he said. The controller reiterated his call for Wilkes-Barre to complete a safety inspection of the property. “The insurance company is now saying the building is not insurable. With all these alarms going off, why would the city and code enforcement not go in?” Griffith said. City operations director Butch Frati has said the city will inspect the structure if it’s requested to do so by the county or CityVest. The city does not typically initi-

ate inspections on its own unless there are exterior signs of potential collapse or other safety hazards, which is not the case with the Sterling, he has said. County officials said the city doesn’t need a request and should inspect the property if there are indications of a problem. Griffith questioned whether the city is hesitant because the city would have to cover the cost of demolition if the building is deemed a public safety hazard. Property owners are liable for the cost, but CityVest is essentially broke, Griffith said. The city could attempt to recoup its money if the parcel is eventually sold to a developer, but the county also will be in line to try to get back at least some of its $6 mil-

WILKES-BARRE – An Ashley woman has filed a lawsuit in Luzerne County Court against the Wyoming Valley Children’s Association and a local transportation company, alleging a van driver caused an accident that resulted in the woman’s autistic son being injured. Jo A. Graf, through her attorney, Matthew Comerford, filed the lawsuit Wednesday against the association as well as T&M Transit Inc., of Plymouth, and van driver Anita Wanyo of Dallas. Graf is seeking more than $200,000 in damages. Graf alleges in the suit that Wanyo was talking on a cell phone while driving a van with Graf’s young son as a passenger,

intentional infliction of emotional distress and battery. The boy will suffer for an “indefinite period of time physical, emotional and mental pain” and is “suffering a loss of enjoyment of life and severe development setbacks” the suit says. The suit alleges Wanyo previously failed to properly restrain the child in a car seat and with a seat belt, and that Graf had to instruct Wanyo on numerous occasions about how to properly do so. Graf says in the suit that she has had to pay “various sums of money” for medicine and medical attention for her son due to the accident, and that Wanyo was “reckless” in “shoving” the child. Philip Gelso, an attorney for the Wyoming Valley Children’s Association, said Friday he had not yet seen the lawsuit and cannot comment on it. Wanyo could not be reached for comment Friday.

WILKES-BARRE – A Shickshinny man who prosecutors say deceived a foster child into having sex with him for two years, telling the girl the Mafia was watching his family, was sentenced Thursday to 14 to 44 months in state prison. Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello sentenced Mark David Brown, 42, of West Butler Street, on a charge of contact/ communication with a minor involving sexual offenses. Brown, who pleaded no contest in March, will have to register his address under Megan’s Law for his entire life, Augello

2010 with sexually assaulting the then-teen from 2004-06. The woman recently came forward with allegations that Brown, as her foster father when she was a child, scared her with a story that the Mafia was watching his family and had given him certain instructions. She said one of the instructions included Brown having sex with her, according to the criminal complaint. The charges were filed May 4 after several people, who were then teen girls, separately reported the same claim by the woman that Brown gave them marijuana and alcohol. According to court papers, the woman said she was placed with Brown and his wife as a foster

when Brown began acting more as a friend than a foster parent. She said Brown took her out of school when she became a freshman in high school and made her and other teen girls work for him selling newspaper subscriptions in the Shickshinny area. After selling subscriptions, she alleged, Brown provided her and other girls with marijuana and alcohol. He made up a story, telling the girls the Mafia was watching him and had given him certain instructions to follow, and if he didn’t follow them the Mafia would kill his family, the criminal complaint says. State police said the alleged Mafia instruction was to have Brown get the girl to perform lewd sexual acts on him.

CityVest’s report said the Sterling’s roof has rotted beyond repair, causing water to enter the building in “significant volumes.” A major snow load, high wind storm or movement of makeshift support bracing could result in “a catastrophic failure of the building or integrity of the exterior facade,” the report said, noting that contractors and engineers have expressed concerns about the safety of anyone entering the building’s upper floors. Commissioners noted the urgency of the situation in a recent letter to Leighton requesting demolition assistance, saying that studies indicate a collapse is CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER possible if the building goes through another winter without The old Sterling Hotel at North River and West Market streets in substantial stabilization.

President Judge Thomas Burke could not be reached for comment Friday, nor could Amesbury. Attorneys in the case are prohibited from commenting due to a long-standing court-imposed gag order.

The suit also says that after the crash Wanyo reached around and grabbed the child’s face, “slamming his head back” and causing him to suffer a concussion. Graf alleges Wanyo had to grab the boy because he was not fastened properly into his car seat, and that Wanyo left the scene after emergency personnel arrived, leaving the child alone in an ambulance. Because of her son’s autism, Graf said, his life requires “structure and familiarity” and Wanyo failed to provide that by leaving the scene. The suit says the boy sustained “serious and permanent mental and physical injuries” and that Wanyo’s use of a cell phone while driving was “extreme and outrageous.” The suit seeks damages for negligence, negligent retention,

which a jury acquitted Selenski, 37, in the killings of two men. After public requests by the families of Fassett and Kerkowski, and a petition filed by then-District Attorney David Lupas, Olszewski recused himself from Selenski’s case on Aug. 9, 2006. The case was reassigned to Judge Chester Muroski. Muroski presided over pre-trial matters for more than three years. Days before he became a senior judge, Muroski transferred the case on Dec 29, 2009, to visiting Senior Judge Joseph Rehkamp. After Rehkamp was charged in a domestic violence dispute in January

2010 and later served six months in the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, the court administration office assigned the Selenski case to Amesbury on Jan. 27, 2010, three weeks after he took the oath of office as a county judge. Amesbury had the Selenski case for two months before Burke reassigned it to Muroski on March 11, 2010. Selenski is scheduled to appear in Luzerne County Court on Aug. 31, after he requested he be permitted to represent himself in the case. It was unknown Friday if Amesbury’s filing affects whether the Aug. 31 hearing will occur.

Eagles swoop in on top CB

Starter Andrew Brackman walked nine in 31⁄3 innings but didn’t allow a hit to Buffalo. By MIKE HAIM For The Times Leader

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Control is normally a concern when it comes to Andrew Brackman. Friday’s game was no exception. In perhaps one of the most mystifying outings by a pitcher in Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees history, Brackman had loads of trouble finding the strike zone against the BISONS Buffalo Bisons. He walked nine and threw two wild pitches YANKEES in 31⁄3 innings. But the Bisons didn’t record any hits against Brackman and didn’t score until after he was replaced. The Herd rallied for five runs after Eric Wordekemper entered the game and went on to win 8-5. The loss snapped the Yankees’ season-best six-game winning streak and put a slight dent into their gaudy record against New York-based teams, against whom

While with the Oakland Raiders, Nnamdi Asomugha was considered by many to be the top cover man in the NFL. Now he joins a crowded Eagles secondary that includes fellow standout cornerbacks Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Coveted Asomugha Colts entering camp lands in Philadelphia without star Manning The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM — Philadelphia has become quite the attractive free-agent destination of late. On Friday, Nnamdi Asomugha and the Eagles joined in on the party. One day after acquiring Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from the Cardinals, the Eagles stunned the NFL world, and signed another Pro Bowl cornerback, Asomugha, to a five-year contract. Very quietly, while other teams made headlines in their

pursuit of Asomugha, Eagles general Manager Howie Roseman and president Joe Banner made a pitch to him that he simply could not refuse. Asomugha’s deal will pay him $60 million over the life of it, with $25 million guaranteed. “Howie and Joe worked their tail off and put together this phenomenal plan,” Philadelphia coach Andy Reid said. “They came out of the gates like wild men and attacked the issue. Neither one of them has had much sleep. But they’ve reSee ASOMUGHA, Page 6B

tory. Manning has never missed a start — the streak is at 227, including playoffs, the longest active one in the league. “I’ve told him to be as cautious as he needs to be because the last time I checked, we don’t count preseason games,” Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday said. “I can tell you this, there’s not a player that works harder than he does.” At Patriots camp, Chad Ochocinco was wearing his usual number 85 at practice, one day after See NFL, Page 4B

The Indianapolis Colts expect to begin training camp practices Monday without Peyton Manning, who not only is coming off neck surgery, but doesn’t have a contract. Coach Jim Caldwell said the star quarterback is “not ready right now” and that the team will “turn him loose” when he is ready to play.

A string of dismissals has four coaches making their league debut in the 2011 season.

Here’s a little perspective on the massive turnover and turmoil that has struck the Big Ten this year: Ron Zook, he of the perpetual hot seat at Illinois, is the third-longest tenured coach in the conference. “Well, it’s hard to believe going into my seventh year and I’m actually third in seniority,” Zook said Thursday during Big Ten media days in Chicago. “Actually kind of mind-boggling.” Very much so.

OPINION PHIL SHERIDAN

WR should be running a better route HERE’S THE EASY part. DeSean Jackson has been underpaid and deserves a substantial raise before he plays another NFL game. Everyone from Jackson to agent Drew Rosenhaus to Andy Reid to Joe Banner would agree on that point. The not-so-easy part is figuring out just how substantial that raise should be. Jackson is tough to place a value on, because he doesn’t compare easily to other wide receivers. His unique skill set, the way he contributes beyond what his statistics show, his small stature and his history of concussions create a complicated formula. Jackson did not report with his Eagles teammates to Lehigh on Thursday Jackson morning. That was both understandable and regrettable. Understandable because Jackson has been frustrated by his contract for a long time and wants to force that issue onto the Eagles’ front burner, regrettable because the end of the lockout has created unprecedented chaos for teams trying to get their rosters together. A little bit of good will on Jackson’s part would go a long way here. The Eagles got one piece of pressing business taken care of Thursday. They finally completed the long-awaited trade of quarterback Kevin Kolb to Arizona. Kolb, who made about 25 times as much money as Jackson last year, received yet another large chunk of guaranteed money in a five-year deal with the Cardinals. It’s a sound trade for the Eagles. They fill a gaping hole in their defense with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and get a second-round draft choice as well. The Kolb era, such as it was, comes to an end with the same shrug that defined his time with the Eagles. The next steps are infinitely more important and interesting. The Eagles need a few more key pieces on their defense: a linebacker (or two) and a veteran safety, at least. They need to get this whole circus under the big top and see how it looks before the season begins. Oh, and they have to deal with contracts for Jackson and quarterback Michael Vick. Those two items may be intertwined. The Vick deal will be larger and will have a lasting impact on the salary cap. The Jackson deal is going to be tougher, and not just because the player and his agent have decided to force the issue. The first rule in NFL deals is to pay for future performance, not past achievement. The Eagles have made unpopular choices with veterans (can you say "Brian Dawkins?) because they adhere to this rule as best they can. Their philosophy has been to identify young players on their way up and lock them in to long-term deals. Nobody fit that profile better than Jackson. He would have gotten his second contract by now if his career arc hadn’t collided See SHERIDAN, Page 5B

Phils get Pence, smash Pirates The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired All-Star right fielder Hunter Pence from the Houston Astros, shoring up their lineup for the stretch run. The Phillies got Pence and cash from Houston on Friday for three minor leaguers and a player to be named later in the middle of Philadelphia’s 10-3 win against Pittsburgh on Friday. The 28-year-old Pence began the day with a .309 batting average, 11 homers and 62 RBIs. Houston nabbed two of Philadelphia’s top prospects in first baseman Jonathan Singleton and right-hander Jarred Cosart. But the Phillies managed to hold onto talented outfielder Domonic Brown. The 19-year-old Singleton was batting .282 with nine homers and 47 RBIs for Class-A Clearwater. He was selected by the Phillies in the eighth round of the 2009 draft. The 21-year-old Cosart was 9-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 20 games, 19 starts, for Clearwater. In Friday’s game, Chase Utley fell a double shy of the cycle and Roy Halladay tossed one-hit ball over seven shutout innings to trounce the Pirates. Halladay (13-4) struck out five and walked none in the sticky heat. The arrival of Pence, a twotime All-Star, means right fielder Domonic Brown, still considered a blossoming future star, will hit the bench. Mets 8, Nationals 5

WASHINGTON — Jose Reyes drove in two runs, and the New York Mets made Chien-Ming Wang’s return to the big leagues a short one with a win over the Nationals. Ronny Paulino finished with three hits, and David Wright and Jason Bay each had two en route to the Mets’ fifth straight win. It was New York’s majorleague leading 33rd road win.

Wang (0-1) couldn’t help the Nationals in his first major league appearance two years to the day after he had shoulder surgery. The right-hander gave up six runs on eight hits in four innings. Braves 5, Marlins 0

ATLANTA — Dan Uggla hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning, Brandon Beachy combined with two relievers on a three-hitter and the Atlanta Braves beat Florida 5-0 on Friday night to end the Marlins’ five-game winning streak. Uggla extended his hitting streak to 20 games and leads Atlanta with 19 homers. He entered July with a .176 batting average but is up to .206 after going 1-for-4 against Florida. Emilio Bonifacio’s 26-game hitting streak, the secondlongest in Marlins history, came to an end. Brewers 4, Astros 0

MILWAUKEE — Hunter Pence was traded midway through the game, and Randy Wolf pitched seven scoreless innings against a punchless Houston lineup, giving the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-0 victory Friday night for their fourth consecutive victory. Pence was removed in the fifth inning of a scoreless game, traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for three minor-leaguers and a player to be named. Reds 4, Giants 3

CINCINNATI — Edgar Renteria singled in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 4-3 win over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night. Cardinals 9, Cubs 2

ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols got his 2,000th hit and Edwin Jackson pitched seven innings in his debut with St. Louis, lifting the Cardinals to a 9-2 win Friday over the Chicago Cubs.

By JANIE McCAULEY AP Baseball Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — For years, the San Francisco Giants’ regular seagulls cooperated so nicely: They flocked to AT&T Park after the final out to scavenge for treats like leftover popcorn, pizza or garlic fries. Those gulls have become more pesky and plentiful of late, creating a problem for fans during games on occasion this season. So, now, the Giants are considering bringing in a resident falcon to help fend off the birds and keep them at bay out where they belong — above the bay. “The gulls are more like your guests. They see a food source and opportunity. They’re transient. There’s a window of time they’re around: they see it, they hear it, they smell it,” said Jorge Costa, the Giants’ longtime senior vice president of ballpark operations. “Most of the time

they’re up on the roof of the building, on the glove (in left field), on the light towers. When people leave, they come down.” While the issue won’t be solved by the time the defending World Series champions return for a 10game homestand starting Monday, the Giants are working on it. Bringing in a falcon to nest around the ballpark is an expensive endeavor, which might take until next year. Unless the problem persists and requires immediate attention. Costa declined to say how much it might cost. Other ballparks near the water have faced similar situations with seagulls. They even turn up across San Francisco Bay at the Oakland Coliseum after the Athletics play. This is right up there with the strangest things Costa has dealt with and studied in his 23 years with the Giants and 40 years in the stadium business — along with such serious issues as terrorist threats in the wake of Sept. 11 and the effects of weather and how grass grows and reacts. While the Giants have found humane ways to keep pigeons

from roosting in their 12-year-old ballpark, the hovering gulls that come in from McCovey Cove and elsewhere are different. Their postgame snacking has long played a part in aiding San Francisco’s extensive cleanup process in the stands after each game. But the 2011 crop appears to be growing impatient. And fans who pay lots of money for tickets and concessions don’t like to be bugged by the unfriendly visitors in the middle of a ballgame. Studying bird behavior and various populations has become a part of Costa’s job description. “This year we’re seeing larger numbers of the seagulls, and sometimes they’ve not been stationary,” Costa said. “There have been a couple of games this year when they’ve started swirling around while the game’s still going on. It’s not pleasant if they’re dropping things and they’re sitting there (with fans).” With the help of Wingmaster Falconry Inc., which states that it works “to provide our clients with the most effective, natural, humane methods available for pest bird abatement,” the Giants

Giants, gulls not getting along

are exploring their options regarding the falcons. If all goes as planned, the gulls get to the point where they can sense when the falcons are in the area and stay away. Birds of prey have often been part of the big league scene. The Minnesota Twins’ Target Field attracted a male American Kestrel last year. He became a fan favorite and even generated a Twitter account with the username TargetFieldHawk and was named Kirby the Kestrel. In other baseball bird news, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Thursday it was sending a thank-you note to Giants outfielder Cody Ross “for being a fine friend to the feathered.” A press release from PETA — subject line: “Goose Abuse Makes Major League Champ Cody Ross Gag” — said that when Ross “learned that foie gras is made by shoving tubes down the throats of ducks and geese, often causing serious injuries, and force-feeding the birds until their livers become painfully engorged, he decided to change ducks’ luck and dump foie gras.”

GOLF ROUNDUP

German youngster grabs lead Caroline Masson’s 7-under performance has her in front at the Women’s British Open.

Simpson, de Jonge share lead at Greenbrier Classic WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Brendon de Jonge and Webb Simpson share the lead halfway through the Greenbrier Classic. De Jonge shot a 3-under-par 67 on Friday while Simpson had a 68. They are at 7 under. First-round leader Trevor Immelman shot a 70 and was at 6 under. Five others are two shots back. Among those failing to make the cut at 1 over were Phil Mickelson, whose streak of17 straight made cuts ended, and defending champion Stewart Appleby. Both finished 3 over. Appleby shot 59 in the final round a year ago to win at 22 under.

tion I’m in,” she said. Woods formally enters the PGA Championship JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Tiger Woods already has missed two major championships this year. He doesn’t plan on missing the last one. Woods has formally entered the PGA Championship, to be played Aug. 11-14 at Atlanta Athletic Club. He has been out of golf for nearly three months so that injuries to his left leg can

properly heal. He will make his return next week in the World Golf Championship event at Firestone. PGA spokesman Julius Mason said Friday that Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, told him that as long as everything goes well at Firestone and there are no complications to his left leg, that Woods intends to play the PGA Championship. Woods has failed to win the last nine majors he has played, one short of matching his long-

being traded by the Cincinnati Bengals. Ochocinco, a reference to the Spanish words for the numbers 8 and 5, legally changed his name from Johnson before the 2008 season. On Friday, he had the number worn last year by rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez, who hasn’t practiced following hip surgery in February. Hernandez was on the field wearing shorts with the number 81. The verbose Ochocinco didn’t speak with reporters, although the Patriots officially announced the trade for undisclosed draft considerations on Friday. They still hadn’t announced the trade for Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. New England did release seven players, including defensive end Ty Warren, tight end Alge Crumpler and offensive tackle Nick Kaczur. All carried salary cap numbers of at least $3 million. Also released were linebacker Tully Banta-Cain, defensive lineman Marcus Stroud, cornerback Tony Carter and linebacker Ryan Coulson. The Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers released Mark Tauscher, a fixture at right tackle for the better part of a decade, along with linebackers Nick Barnett, Brandon Chillar and Brady Poppinga and defensive lineman Justin Harrell. At Spartanburg, S.C., a person familiar with the situation said No. 1 draft pick Cam Newton reached an agreement with the Carolina Panthers. According to several media reports, Newton has agreed to a four-year, $22 million deal. Panthers coach Ron Rivera had said earlier Friday that he expected the former Auburn quarterback to be at Wofford College when Carolina held its first practice session Saturday. San Francisco has its new quarterback, too, and it’s a familiar face: Alex Smith. He signed his one-year free agent contract, as expected, giving new coach and former NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh an experienced starter for this season. Within minutes of completing his deal, Smith was on the sidelines for the team’s first training camp practice — even though he can’t formally take part in physical activity until Aug. 4 under the new

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Germany’s Caroline Masson shot a 7-under 65 Friday to take a surprising one-stroke lead after the second round of the Women’s British Open. Playing in the last group of the day, the 22-year-old Masson had seven birdies without a bogey on the Carnoustie Golf Links to move to 11-under 133, one stroke ahead of South Korea’s Inbee Park and Meena Lee. Masson, competing in only her second season on the European Tour, had four birdies in a front-nine 32. “I’ve just had two great days out there and I’m very happy to be playing so well,” Masson said. “I’ve played really solid, hit the fairways, hit the greens and made some putts. It’s been awesome.” Park had nine birdies and a bogey in a 64, while Lee, who started the second round of the major with a two-stroke lead, closed with two birdies in a 69. “It was a very solid day,” Park said. “I putted pretty good out there and hit it really good, so I’m looking forward to the next two days.” Three players were at 8 under: Dewi-Claire Schreefel of the Netherlands, who had a 66 on Friday, and South Koreans Se Ri Pak, the 2001 champion who had a 64, and Na Yeon Choi, who had a 67. Defending champion Yani Tseng from Taiwan was another stroke back after a second-round 66. “I’m very happy with the posi-

labor requirements. Meanwhile, running back Frank Gore was a no-show for the first day of camp, apparently fulfilling his plan to hold out for a new contract. The two-time Pro Bowl selection, in the final year of his current deal, has been deemed healthy by his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, who didn’t respond to phone messages or email inquiries Friday. Gore went down with a seasonending fractured hip in a Monday night game at Arizona last Nov. 29, but has recovered. San Francisco released veteran kicker Joe Nedney and center Eric Heitmann after they failed physicals. Nedney will be replaced by five-time Pro Bowl kicker David Akers, late of the Eagles, who agreed to a deal Thursday. Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora failed to report for the opening day of the New York Giants training camp and was placed on the reserve-did not report list. Umenyiora, who said during the recent lockout that general manager Jerry Reese failed to live up to a promise to renegotiate his contract, can be fined $30,000 a day. Umenyiora missed his physical, a team meeting and a conditioning session. At Vikings camp, the team formally announced the trade with Washington that brings quarterback Donovan McNabb to Minnesota. The Vikings sent a 2012 sixth-round draft choice and a conditional 2013 sixth-rounder.

McNabb had to agree to a restructuring of the five-year, $78 million deal he signed with the Redskins for the trade to work. Miami completed its trade for Reggie Bush by sending safety Jonathon Amaya and an undisclosed draft pick to New Orleans. Bush was acquired Thursday, when he agreed to a two-year contract for nearly $10 million with the Dolphins. “It’s still pretty surreal for me,” said Bush, who can’t practice with Miami until Aug. 4 because of post-lockout league rules. “This whole experience is great.” Miami also cut outspoken linebacker Channing Crowder, who had been a starter since his rookie season in 2005, but was criticized for not making more big plays. Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne said Friday the team had reached a contract agreement with quarterback Matt Moore, who was not re-signed by Carolina, but Miami had not confirmed the deal. Pittsburgh cut veteran tackle Flozell Adams, while Atlanta is bringing back a rising star at the position, Tyson Clabo. After the Steelers agreed to terms with free agents Willie Colon and Jonathan Scott, they released the 36-year-old Adams, who was in the second year of a two-year deal and was scheduled to make $5 million this season. The Falcons agreed to terms with Pro Bowl tackle Clabo on a five-year deal worth $25 million, about $11.5 million in guaranteed

Browne still on top at U.S. Senior Open TOLEDO, Ohio — Olin Browne followed a record-tying 64 with a solid 69 on Friday, to take a one-shot lead over a talentladen leaderboard in the rain-delayed second round of the U.S. Senior Open. Browne, who led by two strokes after matching the tournament’s low first-round score, had a double-bogey and a bogey but added five birdies — including 3s on the two closing par 4s. He is at 9-under 133. Mark O’Meara (68) was one shot back, with Mark Calcavecchia (67), Joey Sindelar (66) and Michael Allen (69) at 135. Peter Senior (67) was three back, with Corey Pavin (69), Trevor Dodds (69) and Kiyoshi Murota (69) at 137. A lengthy rain delay in the morning prevented the field from finishing the round. money. Atlanta opened cap room by releasing defensive end Jamaal Anderson and receiver Michael Jenkins, two former first-round picks. The team cleared $7.8 million under the salary cap with those moves, then agreed to terms with DE Ray Edwards on a fiveyear contract. Also: •Quarterback Mark Brunell was cut by the Jets, but the 40year-old could return to back up Mark Sanchez at a reduced salary, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. Brunell was due $1.25 million in base salary this year. Punter Steve Weatherford said he is leaving the Jets. He won’t be changing stadiums, though, by moving to the Giants. The Jets cut backup quarterback Kevin O’Connell, who spent last season on injured reserve after hurting his throwing shoulder. •Jacksonville and safety Dawan Landry agreed on a five-year contract, giving the franchise a third new defensive starter in as many days. Landry, who spent the last five years in Baltimore, is expected to sign a contract Saturday. Meanwhile, the Jaguars gave up on 2008 first-round draft pick Derrick Harvey. The defensive end had just eight sacks in 47 career games, including 32 starts. The eighth overall pick in 2008, Harvey got a five-year, $33.4 million contract that included $17.4 million guaranteed. By 2010, he was riding the bench. The Jaguars cut starting guard Vince Manuwai, who showed up at training camp injured, out of shape and overweight. Manuwai injured his left foot last month and couldn’t attempt conditioning tests. •Tampa Bay agreed to terms with former Atlanta punter Michael Koenen, then reached deals to re-sign free agent guard Davin Joseph and tackle Jeremy Trueblood. The Buccaneers had a turnaround season in 2010 in great part due to improvement on the offensive line. •Defensive lineman Shaun Smith, an eight-year veteran, agreed to terms with Tennessee. He spent last season with Kansas City and had 56 tackles and one sack with 10 starts. •The St. Louis Rams agreed to terms on a four-year contract with guard Harvey Dahl, who had been a fixture in Atlanta and had been considered one of the top free agents at his position.

Clemens’ lawyers: Mistrial was intentional

Clemens argued that a new The defense team alleges that trial would violate his constituprosecutors purposely sought tional right against the double a new, more favorable trial. jeopardy of facing the same By NEDRA PICKLER The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — With his trial abruptly cut short, former baseball star Roger Clemens argued Friday that prosecutors intentionally goaded him into asking for a mistrial and asked a judge to throw out his indictment on charges of lying to Congress.

charge twice. His lawyers said prosecutors’ revelation that a teammate told his wife that Clemens confessed to using a drug “was no accident.” They said the prosecutors chose to ignore U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton’s order against using her testimony so they could provoke a mistrial because their case was going badly. The mistrial came on the second

day of testimony in a trial that was expected to last four to six weeks. Most legal experts who reviewed copies Clemens of the Clemens transcripts for The Associated Press say he probably will face a second trial under rules established by the Supreme Court. They said that when a mistrial is requested by the accused, the general rule is that the guarantee

against double jeopardy does not prevent another trial unless the judge finds prosecutors provoked a mistrial. But the experts point out there’s no indication prosecutors would have wanted to start their case over so soon. But the Clemens team argued “this is the rare case” that meets the standard. “By the time the government provoked the mistrial, its highly experienced counsel had suffered a series of setbacks that cast doubt on the case against Mr. Clemens,” defense attorneys

wrote. They pointed out that prosecutors have not said they made a mistake and argued that the violations “were critical, hotly contested pretrial issues that no experienced prosecutor could simply have missed when it came time to finalize exhibits and prepare witnesses.” Prosecutors have three weeks to respond. Walton has set a Sept. 2 hearing on the retrial issue. Clemens’ attorneys argued that the record-setting pitcher has lived in a continuing state of anxiety and insecurity over the

possibility that even though innocent he may be found guilty. They argued a second trial would reward government misconduct by giving prosecutors a chance to improve jury selection, hone its trial strategy and address issues raised early in the first trial. “The government had its day in court and squandered it with misconduct that irretrievably wasted time, money and the opportunity for a one-time, fair resolution of these charges for all involved,” Clemens’ attorneys wrote in their filing.

Juergen Klinsmann was appointed as the U.S. national team coach on Friday, a day after Bob Bradley was fired. The former Germany coach will be a familiar face to American fans, given that he nearly got the job after the 2006 World Cup and then again last year before Bradley was given what turned out to be a short-lived contract extension to 2014. The former Germany striker’s first game in charge will be a friendly against archrival Mexico in Philadelphia on Aug. 10. Qualifying for the next 2014 World Cup in Brazil begins next year. “We are excited to have Juergen as the head coach of our Men’s National Team,” U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati said in a statement. “He is a highly accomplished player and coach with the experience and knowledge to advance the program.

Africa’s first World Series entrant denied U.S. visas By GENARO C. ARMAS The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — A youth baseball team from Uganda that would have been the first squad from Africa to play at the Little League World Series has been denied visas to enter the United States. The U.S. Department of State declined to give a reason for the decision, other than to say that the team’s documentation “contained discrepancies,” officials at Little League headquarters in South Williamsport said Friday in a statement. “It is unfortunate, as we were very much looking forward to welcoming the first African team to the Little League Baseball World Series,” league president Stephen Keener said. “However, we have worked very closely

with the lockout. The Eagles couldn’t complete their customary extension because of the vagaries of the uncapped 2010 season. So Jackson played out the third season of his four-year rookie contract, and it was a case study in the complexity of placing a value on him. The market has been set. Santonio Holmes agreed to terms with the Jets this week for five years at a reported $50 million. That deal reportedly has $24 million in guaranteed money. Seattle wrapped up free agent Sidney Rice this week for five years at a reported $41 million, with $18.5 million guaranteed. Jackson is at least as valuable as either of them in the Eagles’

with our State Department in recent years, and we very much appreciate their diligence in this matter.” Little League vice president Patrick Wilson said the State Department cited privacy concerns in declining to release details. “We knew their documents were under review ... but it’s been a couple days of back and forth” before the decision was confirmed Friday, Wilson told The Associated Press in a phone interview. Wilson said the decision was considered final. The Rev. John Foundation Little League team from Kampala won the Middle East and Africa region tournament, which was played in Poland, with a 6-4 win July 16 over the Arabian American Little League team from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

It was the first time in the 65year history of the World Series that a team from Africa had advanced that far. The World Series is for children ages11to13. The Saudi Arabian team had been a mainstay, qualifying 17 times since 1991. That squad was comprised primarily of children of U.S. citizens who worked overseas. In contrast, the Ugandan team was made up of children who lived in villages outside Kampala and attended the foundation-based school. The first local Little League in Uganda was chartered in 2005, while the Rev. John Foundation team played its first regional tournament in 2008. Little League now must now decide how to proceed with the World Series, which begins Aug.

18 in South Williamsport and ends Aug. 28. Wilson said tournament organizers would meet in the next few days in hopes of making a decision within a week. Sixteen teams qualify for the World Series, eight in the U.S. bracket and eight from the international bracket. “Ideally, we’d like to have a 16team field,” Wilson said. According to Little League officials, the last time a team that qualified could not make the trip was 1959, when a squad from then-West Germany composed of dependents of U.S. Army personnel didn’t have enough money to travel. At the time, just eight teams qualified for the tournament, and the 1959 series was played with just seven squads.

big-play offense. His 2010 numbers (47 catches, 1,056 yards, 6 TDs) don’t tell the whole story. His average of 22.5 yards per reception, the strain he puts on defenses, and his return skills all add value. A fair deal would average about $10 million to $12 million a year over six or seven seasons — the length actually benefits the Eagles because it is more capfriendly. Jackson is only 24. He’d turn 32 near the end of the final season of a seven-year deal. So it’s simple, right? Well, there are a few qualifiers. Jackson isn’t the most mature guy to come along. Then again, as wide receivers go, his diva qualities aren’t out of proportion. The bigger concerns are physical: Jackson, listed at 5foot-10 and 175 pounds, has been knocked out of games with concussions in each of the last two

seasons. Last year’s injury, which came against Atlanta in October, was especially severe. Because of that, because of his size, and because speed is his entire game, Jackson’s career longevity is a more pressing issue than, say, that of the 6-4, 200-pound Rice or the 6-5, 230-pound Vincent Jackson. That is exactly the reason that

DeSean Jackson wants and deserves a new deal before he places himself at risk for another game, let alone a season. He is right to want that deal. He shouldn’t hold out to get it, but then, he really shouldn’t have to. Phil Sheridan is a columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

If NBA stars are serious about playing overseas, basketball’s governing body says they will be welcomed. Just as long as they promise to leave once the lockout ends. FIBA announced Friday it would clear NBA players under contract to play in its leagues during the work stoppage, provided the deals they sign come with opt-out clauses. In a ruling that paves the way for players to earn a paycheck, FIBA agreed with NBA and players’ association officials that players are free to sign anywhere but do so at their own risk of injury. “As the world governing body for basketball, we strongly hope that the labor dispute will be resolved as soon as possible, and that the NBA season is able to begin as scheduled,” secretary general Patrick Baumann said. “In view of our role to promote basketball worldwide, we support any player wishing to play the game, wherever and whenever. We do so while obviously taking the interests, rights and obligations of all parties into account.”

the entire season. Nets All-Star Deron Williams has a deal with Turkish club Besiktas — which is also courting Kobe Bryant — and most top players said they would consider playing overseas. Union executive director Billy Hunter has endorsed the idea, with players believing it will pressure owners at the bargaining table if they see their players have options elsewhere, and FIBA may have been faced with a legal challenge had it denied the players. “Our players are gratified by today’s announcement by FIBA, although it comes as no surprise,” Hunter said in a statement. “We have consistently advised our members that in the event of a lockout they would have the right to be compensated for playing basketball irrespective of whether they were under contract to an NBA team or not. We have encouraged all of our players to pursue such opportunities and will continue to do so.” If a player under NBA contract agrees to a deal in a FIBA-affiliated league, he first must be cleared to go by the NBA. The league will allow partial clearance, meaning it must be guaranteed the player returns to his NBA team once a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.

Source: Pistons agree to terms with Frank as new head coach By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The Detroit Pistons are giving Lawrence Frank another chance to lead an NBA team. A person with knowledge of the situation said Friday that the Pistons have agreed to a threeyear deal with Frank to be their new head coach. The agreement includes a team option for a fourth year, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t announced the move. Frank, an assistant coach with Boston last season and a former head coach in New Jersey, will be Detroit’s sixth coach in 11 seasons when the NBA lockout ends. The Pistons fired John Kuester in June after they missed the playoffs in both of his two seasons. A deliberate coaching search,

which included Mike Woodson, Kelvin Sampson, Bill Laimbeer and Patrick Ewing, ended with the franchise choosing to give Frank another shot at the head job. Frank was 225-241 as coach of the Nets, who advanced to the conference semifinals three times with him at the helm. Frank replaced Byron Scott as New Jersey’s coach in January 2004 and began his career with a 13-game winning streak. He ended his stint with the Nets with a losing streak that was even longer. He was fired in November 2009 after the team started that season 0-16. The 40-year-old from Teaneck, N.J., spent four seasons as a student manager for Bob Knight at Indiana. He was an assistant at Marquette and Tennessee before becoming an NBA assistant in Vancouver and New Jersey.

“I am proud and honored to be named the head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team,” Klinsmann said. “I would like to thank the U.S. Soccer Federation for the opportunity, and I’m excited about the challenge ahead. I am looking forward to bringing the team together for our upcoming match against Mexico and starting on the road toward qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.” Klinsmann, who turns 47 on Saturday, has a considerable World Cup pedigree. As a player, he scored 11 goals in three World Cups, 1990, 1994 and 1998. That ties him for sixth on the all-time scoring list, just behind Pele. Klinsmann was a key cog for West Germany’s 1990 World Cup-winning team and the German team’s captain from 1994 to 1998. He retired in 1998 and moved to the United States shortly afterward. Klinsmann and his wife, Debbie, reside in California with their two children, Jonathan and Laila. Germany coach Joachim Loew, who was Klinsmann’s assistant before becoming his successor, wished him well — and

Kingston/Forty-Fort would take its cuts against Andreoli’s fastballs. When they did connect, they couldn’t get a ball past Warrington’s swarming infielders and quick outfielders. Warrington struck again in the bottom of the fourth thanks to back-to-back singles from Simons and Meghan Bradley, along with a walk drawn by Lauren Curso. After a bases-loaded walk to Emily Gillard, Ruscio beat out a throw to first for an infield single and a 6-0 lead. Bitting added an RBI groundout before Andreoli laced a shot into right field for her second RBI and the final run of the game. Kingston/Forty-Fort’s last chance came on a Lauren Pizano single.

STERLING, Va. — The Hazleton-based Stripes and Strikes 12u fast-pitch softball team finished third in the National Softball Association World Series after a 7-4 loss to Delaware Swoop on Friday in the loser’s bracket final. Stripes and Strikes surrendered a 3-1 lead after allowing four unearned runs in the fifth inning to turn the game around.

warded our football team and the city of Philadelphia with some great players.” Asomugha, considered the top free agent on the market, spent his first eight seasons with the Raiders. He had a careerhigh eight interceptions in 2006, went to the Pro Bowl in the 2008, 2009 and 2010 seasons and was named a first-team allpro in 2008 and 2010. Late Friday, the Eagles announced they had agreed to terms with quarterback Vince Young. The one-year deal was made early Friday morning, but the Eagles couldn’t officially announce it because of a procedural matter involving Young’s release from the Tennessee Titans. The former Pro Bowl quarterback is expected to arrive Saturday for training camp at Lehigh University. Young won’t be allowed to practice until Thursday because he technically is a free agent. The addition of Young gives the Eagles a proven NFL quarterback — albeit one with a rocky history — and fills the team’s need for a backup after they shipped Kevin Kolb to Arizona on Thursday. Second-year quarterback Mike Kafka will remain the Eagles’ third option. Asomugha is considered one of the top cover cornerbacks in the NFL, even though he has just three interceptions in the last three years, and was courted by several high-profile teams, including the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys. “He’s one of the best, if not the best, cornerback in the National Football League,” Reid said. “He’ll be a great addition to our cornerback corps. Right now.” The Eagles now have three Pro Bowl cornerbacks on their roster: Asomugha, Rodgers-Cromartie and Asante Samuel, who has 42 interceptions in eight years and has made the Pro Bowl four straight years. “It’s always been a priority position for us,” Roseman said. “Corners, pass rushers, and we

Brewster (Minnesota) and Bill Lynch (Indiana) were all dismissed by their schools in the past year. They have been replaced by Luke Fickell, Brady Hoke, Jerry Kill and Kevin Wilson, respectively. The following is a brief look at the issues facing each of those new coaches headed into the 2011 campaign. INDIANA Wilson wasn’t allowed to directly address the one topic he would have loved to talk about. Earlier this week, Indiana received a verbal commitment from Gunner Kiel, the consensus top high school quarterback recruit in the country. NCAA rules prohibit schools from discussing recruits until they have signed a letter of intent or have enrolled on campus. So Wilson had to speak in general terms. “We’re selling a great product, a great school, a great opportunity because we’re ready to take this ship and get this thing exploded,” Wilson said. MICHIGAN The Wolverines finally got a “Michigan man” when they hired Hoke, a former Lloyd Carr assistant. Now Hoke must work to fit players who were recruited to run an option-heavy spread offense into his more conventional schemes. “We are smart enough – people usually don’t say that about me – but we’re smart enough to have elements (from) the past in the spread in our offense,” Hoke said. Hoke has little choice after convincing explosive quarterback Denard Robinson to stick around despite the departure of Rodriguez. MINNESOTA Kill led Northern Illinois to a bowl game in each of his three

felt like last year, we were in a situation where maybe we got a little short-handed, and we thought it was a place that we wanted to go heavy and have a lot of talent at. “You can never have enough cover corners. That helps your pass rush and when you have an opportunity to add the players we added, we just thought we had to add those guys.” The Eagles last year allowed a franchise-record 31 touchdown passes in the regular season, and three more in a 21-16 loss to Green Bay at home in the first round of the NFC playoffs. “We have three good cornerbacks,” Reid said. “It reminds me a little bit of when we had (Pro Bowl cornerbacks) Al (Harris), Troy (Vincent) and Bobby Taylor.” Though he may have made more elsewhere, Asomugha made it clear he was interested in winning a title as well. As the league headed toward it’s freeagency signing period, which started on Friday at 6 p.m., it appeared as if the Jets were the clear frontrunner. What seemed to help New York’s cause, is that Asomugha has aspirations of acting when his playing days are over. New York, over several other destinations, clearly seemed like a good place to start that second career. But instead of joining the team that made the AFC title game the last two years, he’ll join an Eagles club that went 10-6 last season, won the NFC East and figures now to be considered among the Super Bowl favorites this year. What makes the move even more surprising is that the Eagles weren’t a part of the early courting of Asomugha. In fact, Roseman said Philadelphia entered negotiations “very late.” But while they certainly have one of the deepest defensive backfields now, clearly one of the big three won’t be able to start for the Eagles. Perhaps it’s Samuel, who was excused from training camp at Lehigh University the last two days. The Eagles also officially signed Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin to a five-year contract, and tight end Donald Lee and wide receiver Johnnie Lee Higgins to one-year deals. seasons there, going 11-3 and winning the MAC West Division title last year. The Huskies certainly looked to be better than the disjointed squad Brewster led at Minnesota. So the coaching switch already looks to be an upgrade for the Gophers. “Well, I think it’s a little bit different because you look at our conference, how difficult it is,” Kill said about making the jump from the MAC. “You have to play those games week in and week out. When you’re at a mid-major, you may play two or three. That’s a huge game when you play them. You’re not playing that competition week in, week out. I think that’s the difference.” OHIO STATE Leading the Buckeyes may be a dream for Fickell, but not under these circumstances. Fickell took over after the school was forced to get rid of Tressel in the fallout of a scandal that also saw star quarterback Terrelle Pryor dismissed from the team. Now Fickell has a handful of other starters serving five-game suspensions. He must pick between a 25-year-old former minor-league pitcher and an 18year-old true freshman at quarterback. And because Ohio State has thus far escaped without major sanctions, the school should still be able to lure a high-profile coach to replace Fickell after this season. “Everything happened pretty fast,” Fickell said. “The greatest thing I guess I could say is I had no time to sit and think. I had no time to feel sorry of any sort, to have a whole lot of emotion. The situation arose and obviously I had to stand up. “I think that’s what’s been best for me – not to have the ability to sit down and think about the situation that’s ahead, but hit the ground running, do what I know how to do best, and that’s compete and obviously learn along the way.”

The Week Ahead

The big question ... ... For investors and economists is whether the job market improved in July or whether it stagnated for the third straight month. Employers created only 18,000 jobs in June and 25,000 in May. Economists are optimistic that hiring picked up in July – but they were taken by surprise when the government reported extremely weak growth in the spring. Another question is about the unemployment rate – did it backtrack after rising to 9.2 percent in June?

Economists believe manufacturing grew slightly in July. They’ll find out if they’re right when the Institute for Supply Management releases its index of manufacturing activity on Monday. A rise in the index would be the second in two months. It would mean U.S. factories are recovering from a slump that began in the spring. A drop in gas prices has helped manufacturers. So has a pickup in the flow of goods from Japan following the March earthquake.

Traders seek safety

On Friday, traders did something they rarely do: they sold what are considered to be the world’s safest shortterm investments. Traders typically buy short term U.S. Treasurys on Friday because they want their money in a safe place in case something happens over the weekend to rattle markets. But this week, they instead bought longer-duration bonds as concerns grew that the federal government may not be able to pay all of its bills next month. Yields on bonds due in one month rose higher than those due in six months. The higher the yield, the higher the implied risk of the bond. Stocks continued a weeklong slide after a dismal report on economic growth added to the anxiety.

A better manufacturing trend? ISM Manufacturing Index

Two sets of reports this week will show how comfortable consumers were about spending in July. Car companies release their sales numbers on Tuesday, and retailers report their results on Thursday. June sales were good for auto dealers and chain stores as gas prices fell and retailers marked down summer merchandise. The question now is whether the weakening job market and concerns about government debt stopped people from buying in July.

Were consumers buying in July?

WILKES-BARRE – With the exit of Todd Vonderheid as head of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry at the end of the year, his replacement will handle double duties. Applications have been coming in for the past few weeks to fill his spot as president and chief executive officer and the same role with the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce. The deadline to submit resumes and cover letters is Monday, said Conrad Schintz of the Geisinger Health System and Chamber of Commerce board member. “ThenewCEOshouldberesponsiblefor

both organizations,” said Schintz, who is chairman of the search committee. The ideal candidate will have five or more years experience as a Vonderheid CEO or more than 10 yearsseniormanagementexperiencewitha private company, economic development organization,chamberofcommerceorsimilar nonprofit organization, according to the job advertisement. In addition, experience managing a membership-based organization, real estate development and management and fundraising skills are required. Since Vonderheid’s announcement in

February the nonprofit business and economic development organization has been looking at the overall structure and preparing for the search of candidates, Schintz explained Thursday. It also opted for a name change. The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry has become The Greater Wilkes-Barre Growth Partnership. Vonderheid, 42, replaced Stephen Barrouk in June 2007, after stepping down from the elected office of Luzerne County commissioner. Prior to running for office as a Democrat in 2003, Vonderheid held an economic development position with the chamber. He decided to move on to another challenge and leave the position that paid $184,847 and came with

$29,143 in other compensation, according to the Chamber of Business and Industry’s 990 Form filed with the IRS for 2009. The two arms of the organization agreed to unite in the search, deciding “that everything would come through one door,” said Schintz. “We’re trying to run a really pure process,” he said, adding the search committee wanted “to make it a textbook case on how you would do a recruitment.” During the month of August, the 16member search committee will “work down” the group of applicants, said Schintz. That list will be further reduced in September, and by the middle of October, an offer will be made, he said.

‘BEES’NESS AS USUAL FOR NEW SWARM OF ENTREPRENEURS

Yahoo fixes China deal

Yahoo has settled a dispute affecting one of its most prized assets — a 43 percent stake in the Chinese Internet company Alibaba Group. The investment lost some of its luster after Alibaba spun off its online payment service, Alipay, earlier this year without compensating Yahoo or its other major shareholder, Japan’s Softbank Corp. Under the deal, Alipay will share nearly half its profits with Alibaba and pay its former corporate parent up to $6 billion if it goes public.

Oil company profits soar

Chevron Corp. said Friday that profit jumped 43 percent in the second quarter as higher oil and gasoline prices made up for a decline in oil production. The company reported earnings of $7.7 billion, or $3.85 per share, for the three months ended June 30. That compares with $5.4 billion, or $2.70 per share, in the year-ago period. Revenue increased 31 percent to $66.7 billion. Chevron’s quarterly profit was the largest since it set a company record of $7.9 billion in the third quarter of 2008. It followed similar big gains for other oil giants.

Bookseller sued on e-reader

Barnes & Noble’s Nook electronic book reader is part of an innovation changing the face of the publishing industry, but LSI Corp. says the device’s link to the bookseller’s online store relies on stolen technology. Agere Systems and LSI Corp., in a suit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Allentown, allege Barnes & Noble’s Nook eReaders make use of patented technology to connect to 3G and WiFi data networks and to process electronic music files.

Drill rig count slips

The number of rigs actively exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. declined by eight this week to 1,908. Houston-based drilling product provider Baker Hughes Inc. reported Friday that 1,025 rigs were exploring for oil and 877 for natural gas. Six were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago this week the rig count stood at 1,586. Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Louisiana gained four rigs and Alaska and New Mexico each gained two. Pennsylvania lost three rigs.

Colours purchases Miller Fuel deal saves money at pump locations in three states By DINA CAPPIELLO and TOM KRISHER Associated Press

By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Colours Inc., of Wilkes-Barre, has purchased all of Miller Auto Parts & Paint Co.’s locations in Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The acquisition makes Colours the largest privately-held PPG Platinum distributor in the United States. From one Wilkes-Barre store in 1986, the company had grown to 19 locations in three states by the beginning of this year. With the 10 Miller stores now under the Colours umbrella, the company can serve more than 8,000 customers, according to Tim Evans, Colours’ owner. And Evans said the plan is to open at least 10 more locations over the next four years. Miller’s, which was headquartered in Huntingdon, operated locations primarily in central and western Pennsylvania with the Selinsgrove store closest to Wilkes-Barre. No purchase price was announced. Evans said the two were not competitors, as their customer areas didn’t overlap. “We just looked at each other from different sides of the state,” Evans said. The acquisition brings together two of PPG’s most recognized distributors on the East Coast.

PPG named Miller Auto Parts & Supply as its 2010 Platinum Distributor of the Year. Also a PPG Platinum distributor, Colours Inc. offers a complete line of PPG automotive paints and finishes. Colours also provides training and support for auto body shop personnel and restoration professionals. “We are pleased to welcome Miller’s employees and customers into the Colours team,” Evans said. “Together we will be the standard by which customers in a wide region of the country judge suppliers in the automotive paint and coatings industry.” Colours will add Miller’s 78 employees for a workforce of 210. It also operates a distribution and training center in Pittston.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and automakers ushered the largest cut in fuel consumption since the 1970s on Friday with a deal that will save drivers money at the pump and dramatically cut heattrapping gases coming from tailpipes. The agreement pledges to double overall fuel economy to 54.5 mpg by 2025, bringing even greater under-the-

hood changes to the nation’s automobiles starting in model year 2017. Cars and trucks on the road today average 27 mpg. “This agreement on fuel standards represents the single most important step we have taken as a nation to reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” Obama said, sharing the stage with top executives of 11 major automakers and a top automobile workers union official, before a backdrop of some of the most cutting-edge cars and

pickup trucks on the road. “Just as cars will go further on a gallon of gas, our economy will go further on a barrel of oil,” Obama said. When achieved, the 54.5 mpg target will reduce U.S. oil consumption from vehicles by 40 percent and halve the amount of greenhouse gas pollution coming out of tailpipes. It builds on a 2009 deal between the Obama administration and automakers, which committed cars and trucks to averaging 35.5 mpg by model year 2016.

Merck planning more job cuts By LINDA A. JOHNSON AP Business Writer

Merck & Co. plans to cut as many as13,000 more jobs under a new round of restructuring as the drugmaker prepares for generic competition for its top-selling drug and slower revenue growth in the U.S. and Europe. The announcement came Friday as Merck reported a higher second-quarter profit than a year ago. The new cuts would bring to 30,000 the positions eliminated since Merck’s November 2009 megadeal to buy Schering-Plough Corp., on top of about 5,000 positions the companies cut before the deal closed. Most of the new job cuts will come from headquarters and other administrative functions. The company also will close some of-

fices and manufacturing sites, CEO Kenneth Frazier told analysts during a conference call. The cuts are to be made by 2015 and won’t start in earnest until next year. Such cuts are part of ongoing streamlining by Merck and many competitors, whose payrolls and costs ballooned in the 1990s as they added thousands of salespeople to promote a surge of blockbuster drugs taken by millions. With those drugs getting generic competition, too few new drugs coming on the market and payers pressing for relief from high prices, the companies are slashing costs in developed countries. The maker of asthma and allergy drug Singulair and Type 2 diabetes pill Januvia said it expects to save $1.3 billion to $1.5 billion with the new round of cuts.

REGIONAL FORECAST Today’s high/ Tonight’s low

NATIONAL FORECAST: Tropical Depression Don will be moving up the Rio Grande Valley, producing much needed rain for Southern Texas. Some moisture from Don will also feed into the monsoonal flow over the Southwest where scattered thunderstorms will be likely. A few storms will develop over the Great Basin and some California mountains as well.

Perfect timing! A wind shift last evening has blown all the storms out to sea while delivering drier air just in time for the weekend. You’re bound to notice a drop in the humidity this afternoon while skies remain mostly sunny with a light northerly wind. But, it's still going to be hot out in the sun, and that goes for tomorrow as well with no chance of rain. Indeed, it's safe to say that we're having a very nice summer season so far with rainfall being a little above normal and temperatures a little above normal.

… Chickens as Teachers

If you have ever visited the Dairy Store, you probably saw our free range chickens strolling around the parking lot, pecking in the grass or taking a dust bath. Our friendly, comical Bantam, Rhode Island Red, Orpington Buff and Barred Rock ladies are quite the attraction and enjoy an ever-growing group of fans! A few weeks ago The Lands hosted a Backyard Chickens workshop and the attendance was terrific. Chickens can be a fun hobby that yields many benefits for a family and the environment. There is nothing like the taste of a fresh egg. Free-range eggs don’t just taste better they are better for you – less cholesterol and saturated fat but more vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids and beta carotene. Many believe that roosters are needed in order for hens to lay eggs – this is not true. Hens will do just fine on their own! Chickens are terrific educators. Like most living creatures, chickens require daily fresh food and water plus their nesting area must remain clean. At night chickens must be locked inside their coup so they remain

safe until morning. Chickens teach responsibility. Chickens are an awesome help in the garden – even during the off-season. Grubs and bugs are a chicken’s favorite snack and their droppings are packed with nitrogen, which is excellent for soil. Chickens reduce waste because they will eat most kitchen scraps or leftovers (except meat). Chickens teach science and environmentalism. A super lesson for today’s world includes money-management and sustainability. Backyard chickens require a small initial investment of money and space yet produce eggs (food) every day. A dozen free-range eggs can cost $5 or more dollars in a grocery or specialty store. Of course, don’t forget the lesson of laughter. Chickens provide some of the best oldfashioned entertainment! The personalities of these ladies are hilarious to watch, especially when they come running over for a snack (if you’ve never seen a chicken run get ready to roar – think endorphins without having to run a few miles). Not every community allows backyard chickens so be sure to check with your local code enforcement before heading out for your hens. If you cannot have chickens where you live don’t worry – you can still reap most of the benefits of a backyard brood by visiting our Dairy Store or your local farmer.

f you’ve ever carted home some unfortunate monstrosity from a beach vacation and rued it, take heart. That’s not the kind of beach décor we’re talking about here. • This summer, retailers are offering décor that evokes the sand and surf but with a sophistication that makes it work as a seasonal accent to most rooms no matter what your decorating style. • Wisteria has some lovely wall art: colonial nautical charts in sea blue with white type. Fantastic in a contemporary space, the historical ambience of the pieces would work equally well in a more traditional room. An ivory linen pillow embellished with a spiny-finned fish in navy blue strikes a chic and exotic note. And a wood and metal tree for votive holders, crafted to look like a frond of coral, would provide interest on a summer dinner table.

hat’s the hurry, everyone? Even though, we still have a good month or two of official summer left, by the end of July retailers are already rolling out fall and Halloween decorations. Fortunately, for those of who don’t want to say goodbye too soon, some area merchants are still offering us beach pieces, from kitchenware to wall hangings. If you’re clinging to the season’s warm, watery vibes, smile at these inspired adornments that should liven up any room.

Get creative when hunting for something interesting and seasonal; often, you’ll find it at a store you might not usually go to. PBTeen has a host of quirky yet delightful items that evoke the theme: a tabletop angel fish fashioned from driftwood bits; wire art, including jaunty starfish hooks; a mountable shark’s head whose toothy maw can be used as a receptacle for beach hats, dog leashes and so on. Wall mounted “surfboards” give the cottage (or city apartment) a laid-back spot to hang a jacket. And a crisp cotton pillow is photo-print-

ed with a regal seagull perched atop a sign pointing to — what else? — the beach. Bring some sea-life elements to a couple of walls with Pottery Barn’s mounted faux sea urchin collection, set in a soft white frame. Branches of rosy coral are silkscreened on linen to make an elegant wall hanging. There also are pretty cast-stone terra cotta starfish, and shells, washed white and framed. A day’s beachcombing often yields some lovely finds, such as gently hued, water-washed glass. At See BEACH, Page 9C

From left: Cape Cod beach-sand-encrusted votive holders; a portholeinspired mirror; a starfish-rimmed mirror from Beach Grass Cottage; and Sea Life pillows from Homegoods.

1. KITCHENWARE A beach vacation calls for some major relaxation time, which, in turn, can call for a good strong drink. Serve up such a libation in this Grasslands Road ceramic pitcher, inscribed with the phrase, "I’d rather drink a martini than wear a bikini." "The handle on this makes it very unique," Patty Leighton, owner of Bee Hive gift shop in Wilkes-Barre, said. The pitcher sells for $39.99. If you’d like to pair it with more beach-based kitchenware, Bee Hive also sells ceramic dip bowls for $19.99, complete with a bathing suit and snorkel-clad diver that serves as a spreader.

2. PICTURE FRAME Remember that time the kids buried mom in the sand? How about when grandpa pulled a huge crab out of the ocean? If you were fortunate enough to capture such vacation memory moments on film, you can put them on display in a lightweight wood and canvas picture frame. "The background of this reminds me of Ocean City," Patty Leighton, owner of Bee Hive gift shop in Wilkes-Barre, said. "I think you can really liken this background to any beach you’ve been to, which is the beauty of it." The frame sells for $19.99 and was crafted in Lancaster.

3. STARFISH WALL HANGING Sometimes a simple piece is key, and when a simple piece can be multiplied into a statement-making wall decoration, well, even better. So it goes with the teal and beige metal starfish wall hanging on sale for $6.49 at Country Junction in Wilkes-Barre. "Putting more than one of these on a wall is a great way to decorate it any way you’d like," Donna Anthony , sales associate, said. "You can hang it so it’s square or hang it in a diamond shape." Anthony also goes so far as to say the beach-friendly art can be used for other things. "You could probably put this on a nail that sticks out a little bit and use the spirals as a place to hang your keys."

4. LIGHTHOUSE Color comes to mind during beach season, from striped umbrellas to the many-hued plastic pails and shovels little ones carry around on the sand. This Island Imports International candle holder is a great way to infuse some color into a room from every angle. The tabletop piece, retailing at $13.99 at Country Junction in Wilkes-Barre, has a stained-glass-like beach scene on each of its four sides. "Once you open the door and put a candle in, it lights the whole thing up and gives off beautiful colors," Donna Anthony, sales associate, said. While using a small candle would be fine, Anthony suggests a battery-powered light instead.

Joan Therese Seivert’s necklace — a large heart shape covered in tiny pieces of sparkly jewelry attached to a bolo tie — looks homemade, and it is. It comes with a heartfelt story. Her sister made it for her before Seivert left her hometown of St. Paul, Minn., 35 years ago to live in Denver. All those little sparkly bits were culled from the jewelry passed down by her grandmother. “It’s Grandma. It’s my sister. It’s my path of service. It’s my work. It’s my faith. It’s my way of taking care of myself. It’s a way of showing up. It’s a reminder,” says Seivert, who helps families navigate senior-living choices through her company, Connections Unlimited. Clients, often unfamiliar with elder-care options, start out worried and stressed. Seivert wears the necklace to remind herself to work from her heart – and to signal that message to others. Many of us collect or end up with old family knickknacks - sewing notions, keys, jewelry, handkerchiefs, buttons, all manner of little, ancient doodads. Often, we don’t know what to do with them. What is this thingamabob anyhow? What’s it made of? Should I cherish it, or toss it? How might I use it? Some, like Seivert’s sister, know exactly what to do with the jars full of keepsakes and the drawers stuffed with thingamajigs. Take Giuseppina “Josie” Cirincione of Phoenix, who teaches community art classes and has written several crafting books, including “Collage Lost and Found” (North Light Books, 2006). It shares ideas for making collages and jewelry with old photographs, memorabilia and vintage ephemera. For Cirincione, creating begins with collecting. She collects a lot of old things, from wooden dry cleaner hangers and yardsticks to kitchen and woodworking tools. Cookie cutters. Brass keys. Icepicks. Handwrittenlettersand envelopes. Velveeta cheese boxes (they’re wooden and tout “the delicious cheese food” in vintage lettering). That’s only a slice of her collection, and Cirincione puts it all to good use, eventually. “I’ve always been drawn to anything old, drawn to that unique thing,” Cirincione says. For the rest of us, who simply want to make a little something special with a family member’s memorabilia, Cirincione recommends making a two-dimensional collage or three-dimensional assemblage - but handle your treasures carefully. “It’s a challenge, using Grandmother’s things,” she says. “You don’t want to drill through it or ruin it. You have to figure how to use the found object piece without altering the piece itself.” This nod to preservation led Cirincione to wire-wrapping and metal-soldering. She recommends using baling wire – an all-around, “fix-it” wire used to mend farm fences – stripped of its outer coating, which reveals a gun-metal gray wire. “It lends itself more to a vintage, found-object kind of look,” Cirincione says. Combine memorabilia in a display box – this is why Cirincione collects the Velveeta boxes – incorporating disparate items and textures for added interest. For jewelry making, have a small drill (with a 1/16-inch drill bit) and pliSee MEMENTO, Page 9C

Sound surface needed to stucco

COOL DIGS

HERE ARE more painting tips, this time about stucco, for which I get many, many questions, especially from Philadelphians living in a row that is a house or two short, with party walls that need repainting. I turn, as usual, to Debbie Zimmer at the Dow Chemical Paint Quality Institute. She says stucco can be successfully painted by following certain procedures. As with most painting projects, surface preparation is key. “Start by making sure that the surface of your stucco is sound,” Zimmer said. “It should be free of dirt and powdery dust and rough enough so that your primer and paint will adhere well.” You can accomplish both objectives by cleaning and roughening the surface with a stiff bristle brush, wire brush, or — if your stucco has been long neglected — a sandblaster. Follow up with a thorough rinsing. The next step depends upon the age and condition of your stucco. Unpainted stucco that is very new or less than a year old presents special challenges. For one thing, it may still contain moisture from the original mixing; for another, it may have a high degree of alkalinity. These possibilities have implications for the coatings you use, Zimmer said. If you plan to apply an oil-based or vinyl water-based paint, you must first apply an alkaline-resistant sealer or risk having the paint fail prematurely. But you might be able to skip this step, she said. “If you are going to use top-quality 100 percent acrylic latex paint, you can often apply it directly to the stucco, because these paints resist the alkaline nature of fresh masonry.” The exception: When painting stucco that is less than a month old, you should still apply an alkaline-resistant primer or sealer. Weathered stucco that is unpainted or previously painted involves other considerations.

This narrow-lot design, Plan HMAFAPW01265 from Homeplans.com, displays classic details from a bygone era: a covered veranda in the front, a gabled roof and fish-scale detailing. Ideal for narrow city lots, it’s also suited for a corner lot with two entrances. The floor plan covers 2,219 square feet on two levels, and blueprints include plans for an unfinished basement, which could be used to increase living

area later. Inside, first-floor living areas include two fireplace-warmed zones: In front, the formal living and dining rooms, open to each other, and in back, the more casual family-kitchen-breakfast area. The family room has a bay window for lovely views into the backyard. On fine evenings, step out to the rear deck. Upstairs are four bedrooms, including the master suite with its walk-in

closet and private bath that includes a separate tub, shower and double-bowl vanity. Box bay windows add a special touch in several rooms: the master bedroom, master bath, hall bath and one of the three additional bedrooms. Choose the unfinished basement foundation option, if appropriate to your climate, to have plenty of room for future expansion.

ALAN J. HEAVENS If you see efflorescence — white, crusty salt deposits — on your stucco, you must remove it during surface preparation by scraping, wire-brushing or sandblasting. Even if your stucco shows a slight tendency to produce efflorescence — or if it is very porous or “chalky” — you should apply a sealer or latex block filler before painting. When applying any type of latex coating to your stucco — sealer, block filler, or paint — you should dampen the surface immediately beforehand. This will allow the coating to dry more slowly, which in turn, will enable it to form a more durable protective film. What if the stucco is badly cracked? In that case, the best option is to call in a painting contractor with experience applying “elastomeric wall coatings” — very thick, highly flexible paints that are designed to bridge and seal cracks to keep moisture out of the home. Like other paints, elastomeric coatings come in a wide range of colors, but it takes special training to apply them properly. ••• Q: About four years ago, we had a stainless-steel liner installed in our chimney. Mortar continued to fall out, so the upper half of the chimney was rebuilt and the lower half removed to a one-inch depth and then repointed. About three months later, we had the brick work sealed to keep out moisture. Ever since, we have noticed a stain forming down from the area of the liner. There is no rust on the liner cap, and we do not use the fireplace so it can’t be coming from there. Any ideas? A: From what I’ve been able to find out, there is moisture in the flue and, because the liner isn’t properly sealed, the stain is appearing. I’d suggest a callback to have the liner installer seal it properly.

TheartworksonHaroldCorbin’s walls in Madison, Miss., are full of memories. “Art needs to be not just a purchase but an experience,” says Corbin, 54, who has collected hundreds of paintings, prints and lithographs. “You’ve got a memory behind it.” Corbin, who developed an interest in art while in college, began buying art — often by Mississippi artists — after he had established his career as an accountant. He vividly recalls where he bought most of the pieces. “I had no idea I was collecting art,” Corbin says. “I bought some pieces I liked. More and more, it became what I did.” Purchasing art can be intimidating, but the joy of owning a collection of original works is worth it, Corbin and others say. Building a collection means learning more about the art world and about what you like, and finding a theme —

THE TIMES LEADER

www.timesleader.com

Memories of childhood assaults continue to haunt high school senior Dear Abby: I’m a 17-year-old female senior in high school. I was coerced into sex when I was 12 by a 19-year-old neighbor. He raped, molested and beat me repeatedly for two months. I come from a religious family. I was very sheltered and didn’t understand most of what was happening at the time. It wasn’t until I had Sex Ed that year that I fully understood. Mom had always told me not to let anyone touch me because it was dirty and wrong. I felt guilty because I knew “something” was wrong. When I told my neighbor about the guilt, he taught me how to cut myself using a razor blade. I never told my fam-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE ily (or anyone else, for that matter) about what had happened to me, and I continued cutting until last year when my mom found out. I have been in and out of counseling since then. I have nightmares nearly every night. I relive memories of him beating me, molesting me and raping me. The nightmares are getting worse, and I’m falling asleep during the daytime. Abby, can you help me? — Nightmares in Wichita, Kan. Dear Nightmares: None of what happened was your fault. You were a

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

child and that neighbor was an adult who took advantage of your youth and inexperience. The feelings you’re experiencing are not unusual for rape victims — fear, anger, shame, guilt, loss of power and isolation. If you will make a police report, it will help you to regain a sense of control. It may also prevent other children from being victimized by this monster. If possible, ask to talk with a female police officer — although many police departments provide special training to all their officers so victims are treated in a sensitive and caring manner. Being able to give voice to your feelings will go a long way toward making your nightmares go away. It will help you immensely if you’ll talk with a professional counselor

at a rape treatment center or crisis center. For you, that would be the Wichita Area Sexual Assault Center. Its 24-hour toll-free number (for Kansas residents only) is (877) 927-2248. The website is www.wichitasac.com. Please don’t wait. Dear Abby: My father passed away a few months ago and something has been bothering me ever since his funeral. Some of my co-workers attended the viewing and the service. I do not care for any of them and I believe they showed up because they were nosy about my personal business. Now my mother is very ill. I don’t know how I’ll handle it if these people show up at my mother’s eventual service. I think this is an invasion of my privacy, and I get sick to my stom-

ach at the thought of them coming. Is there anything I can do or say to let them know they’re not welcome? — Private Person, Ontario, Canada Dear Private: Yes, there is something you can do. When the notice of your mother’s death is published in the newspaper, it should be stated that her funeral service will be private. The time and place should not be mentioned, and should be communicated verbally only to those you would like to attend. 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). Pretending is fun, especially when everyone understands that you are playing a game and agrees to the same set of rules. If not, your pretending could land you in a bit of trouble. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone will be favorably impressed by you. All you have to do to remain in favor is refrain from negating this impression by uttering words of self-deprecation or deflection. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t care a bit how someone measures up on paper; you are headed for a paperless existence. It’s more “green” to feel your way through, measuring with your instincts. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don’t worry about being modest now. Put your best qualities in the most flattering light, and let others think what they think — you can’t stop them anyway. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The voices of dissent are still part of your mental soundscape. They have a purpose in keeping you safe and grounded. You wouldn’t want them to leave entirely, though you should encourage them to pipe down. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The reason you will dress well just to go to the grocery store is that you know you will feel more confident for making the effort. What you wear is less important than how you feel. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can’t talk anyone into wanting what he or she doesn’t want. But you can entice your target to feel as strongly as you do that you hold

the solution for a most vexing problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It is neither fair nor healthy to condemn one small part of you as unsatisfactory. You are not made up of disparate bits and pieces. Every part of you serves a purpose in creating the whole beautiful picture. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s about time you were spoiled rotten. And if there is no one around to do something nice for you, make sure to do something nice for yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know how to command an audience. When you really want to get someone’s attention, you do it without much effort. However, just now, you may prefer to go “under the radar.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You won’t automatically give your trust. You are wise to observe how a person interacts with the world. Judging by what you see, you accurately predict how he or she will interact with you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You like knowing that you have caused others to be pleasantly surprised. That is why you don’t always say what you are up to. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 30). You trust yourself and will blaze a path instead of following the well-worn road of those before you. Someone will become more and more attached to you through the next 10 weeks. The financial situation improves after you rework it in September. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 13, 30, 9 and 49.

Looking good enough to eat ART By WILLIAM HAGEMAN Chicago Tribune

Turning your front yard into an edible garden can be an education. Not just for you, but for neighbors too. Ivette Soler tells a story about skateboarders who stopped to admire her front yard, where the lawn had been replaced by a variety of vegetables and herbs. “One of ’em said, ‘Look! Those are artichokes! Dude, they grow on plants!’ ” Soler, who lives in Los Angeles, has been writing the gardening blog “The Germinatrix” (thegerminatrix.com) since 2006. She has been a longtime advocate of having anediblefrontyard.Infact,herfirst book has just been published, called, appropriately, “The Edible Front Yard: The Mow-Less, GrowMore Plan for a Beautiful, Bountiful Garden” (Timber Press, $19.95). Q: When people think about growing food, they often think of farmers’ fields, regimented rows of corn or beans. A: Plants that give us food can be just as ornamental when we combine them with other things and whenwecreatesmartassociations.

Then we have real gardening. We plant in rows for yield, which is of course super-legit, but when you’re in the front yard you have to think about curb appeal as well. And so (wego)tothosetraditionalideasof garden design, a few little hints and thoughts and tricks and planning that allow you to do things that create cohesive, lovely landscapes with edibles. Q: Do you have to choose between what looks good and what you like to eat? A: What’s so fantastic, there’s such a wealth of beauty in the edible palette, you can kind of skirt the issue in many ways. You can do both, especially if you’re looking into the heirloom edibles. They’re just glorious things to choose from in terms of color and texture and form. Q: What about vegetable rustlers? A:Anybodycanwalkupandtake alemonorgrabanappleor,Godforbid, cut off an artichoke, which has happened to me. What I’ve realized is it’s usually not somebody from anotherneighborhood....It’susually people who walk around the neighborhood. I’ve seen them take

basil. I talk to them. I say, “You can always ask me, and I’ll give you some.” I find when I talk to people it changes the relationship. (It becomes) “This is my friend; of course I don’t want to take from my friend.” So the more you start interactingwithyourneighborhoodand community, which automatically happenswhenyou’regardeningbecause you’re out there so much, it becomes a different dynamic. Q: What do you have in your front yard? A: Lots of herbs integrated (with ornamentals). And a great thing that translates climate to climate, I have lettuces all over. I grow artichokes, I grow tomatoes, little cherry tomatoes, way in back because foliage can get a little ratty as the season goes on. My front yard is all about the basils and the oreganosandthefennel.AndeveryyearI grow beans. I also have another part that I consider my front yard, the area between the sidewalk and streets. I have three large raised beds there. I grow Swiss chard; right now there’s a lot of Lacinato kale, or black kale, and red mustard.

tures, meet artists and gather to discuss art. “I’m trying to introduce a culture,” N’Namdi says. “It’s bigger than, ‘Are you going to get something today?’ ” Many museums also sponsor clubs dedicated to helping people learn more about art. MembersoftheMississippiMuseum of Art in Jackson, for instance, can join a New Collector’s Club, which offers private tours, visits with artists and other events. Beth Batton, curator of the museum’s collection, encourages people to visit museums and galleries and figure out what medium they like. Then seek good examples of it.

“Educate your eye,” she says. “If you find you really like photography, try to understand the techniques.” Figure out why certain pieces of art move you, adds Aprile Gallant, curator of prints, drawings and photos for the Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, Mass. The theme you choose can be broad, she says, and can focus on an activity, place or era. Havingafocusgivesacollection coherence and personality, and can help art buyers choose more wisely, Batton says. Corbin considers his collection priceless not because of its monetary value but because of the pleasure it brings him.

guidance,” explains Catherine Evans, curator of photography at the Columbus Museum of Art. There needs to be “some narrowing or defining of what resonates with you.” A good place to start is by consulting with gallery owners, museum curators and artists, who often are eager to share their knowledge. “That’s their profession,” Corbin says. “I haven’t seen a time when they didn’t want to talk about it.” Jumaane N’Namdi, director of the G.R. N’Namdi Gallery in Chicago, which focuses on contemporary abstract art, considers it part of his job to create the next generation of collectors. He tries to make people feel welcome in the gallery. “It’s OK to just go in there and walk around in circles,” he says. He urges potential buyers to do research. “That doesn’t mean go read art books, because that’s not realistic,” he says. “Visit galleries. Allow yourself to grow with art.” He has organized a club for potential collectors who want to learn more. Members attend lec-

WHEELS

The way to make our roads safer: produce better drivers SCOTT WASSER WHEELS OPINION While driving in rural Georgia a few years ago with one of Ford’s European executives as a passenger, I suddenly found myself at the tail end of a traffic jam that appeared to stretch a mile or more. Until that point, it had been a great drive covering about 70 miles of meandering two-lane tarmac. Except for those few times when the road bisected a small town, the prevailing speed was around 50 miles an hour. That was fast enough to enjoy the sporty vehicle I was driving. The traffic jam put our enjoyment on hold. After crawling for what was about 15 minutes but seemed like 15 hours, we discovered what was causing the tie-up: A guy on the opposite side of the road changing a flat tire. The shoulder was nearly wide enough for two cars, and the guy was well clear of the road. The tire he was changing was on the far side of the car. Nevertheless, I could understand people slowing down to 30 mph or so out of courtesy or caution. But I couldn’t figure out why nearly every car rolled past at the pace of a turtle with three broken legs. … until I watched the drivers of the first and second cars in front of me. Their heads were on swivels as they passed the car on the side of the road. They apparently had never before seen anyone changing a flat tire and were mesmerized by it. The way they slowed and stared, you’d swear they were watching a Cirque du Soleil production. My British passenger turned to me and mused, “Only in America.” I couldn’t argue. Not because I’ve spent a lot of times on European roads but because I’ve seen countless and constant examples of stupidity, carelessness and just plain incompetence on our own. There are signs we may be coming to our senses… at least a little bit. Although I still see plenty of folks focused on their smart phones instead of the road, I’m encouraged that we seem to at least have acknowledged that that’s a problem. But the sad fact is that the laws we enact to prevent it wouldn’t be necessary

Good samaritans help a woman change a flat tire on the side of a busy highway. Well over 30,000 Americans are killed or seriously inured in traffic accidents each and every year.

if we as a nation truly learned what it means to safely operate a vehicle in the first place. My British passenger told me some things that helped me understand why we don’t. “In most of Europe,” he said, “it is very difficult to get a driver’s license. Where I grew up in England, you expected to fail your driver’s test when you took it. And the second time. And maybe even the third. “Almost nobody passed the first time because the test is tough and makes you prove you can safely operate a vehicle under all the conditions you’re likely to encounter on the road. “In Europe, we consider it a privilege to have a driver’s license,” he continued. “But here in America, teenagers seem to consider it a birthright.” I couldn’t argue with him. I’ve taken and witnessed the driving portions of motorcycle and car licensing tests in several states. Most of those tests were administered in parking lots. Those that

did require at least a minimal time on real roads were generally conducted on roads so free of other traffic they felt like closed courses. I never took or knew anyone who took a driving test at night… on snow… or even in a heavy downpour. But earn your license by satisfying an examiner in a parking lot on dry surfaces in daylight and you’re legally qualified to drive in a blizzard or an ice storm. Not that you’re necessarily even barely competent to do so. But society doesn’t seem to care. Moms and dads worry about teenagers speeding, drinking and driving, and clowning around with friends in the car. But how many really appreciate that they’re freely handing over the keys to an incredibly deadly 3,500-pound weapon of mass destruction without requiring them to know how to handle that weapon? I’d bet most don’t because they got their driver’s license under the same system. They don’t know themselves what it takes to be a skilled and proficient driver

as opposed to a scarcely capable one. I may not, either, but I’ve tried to understand what it takes to be able to control a vehicle. I’ve attended several basic and high-performance driving schools on public roads and closed tracks. I’ve taken the national Motorcycle Safety Foundation beginners and advanced classes several times. And I had a father and uncle who cared enough to demand that I develop a skill level in a car and on a motorcycle that satisfied them, not just the laughable basic competency test administered by most DMVs. I did the same when my daughters were learning to drive. I made them drive at night. I set up cones in empty parking lots and made them perform emergency braking and steering and prove they could control a vehicle, not just start and operate it. I took them out on the same parking lots that were wet from rain and covered by snow and ice. I wanted them to know how a vehicle

would feel when it encountered those conditions and learn how to control it. I wanted them to experience an uncontrollable skid in a place where the vehicle would eventually slide harmlessly to a stop instead of crashing into another vehicle or a building or – heaven help us – a pedestrian. It’s a shame that our DMVs don’t demand the same. No, it’s not a shame; it’s an injustice. It’s easier to get a driver’s license than to win a prize at a carnival game. And once you get it, you’re a winner for life! I know an 85-year-old who hasn’t driven regularly in at least 15 years and can probably count on one hand her times behind the wheel during that span. Yet it’s perfectly legal for her to hop in the car this afternoon and drive from Boston to Los Angeles. Maybe that’s why our roads often resemble a demolition derby. Drivers wander between lanes, don’t signal turns, and clog the left, passing lane on the highway while driving slower than the speed limit. They also cause accidents by changing lanes without signaling, passing on blind curves and slamming on their brakes to watch the guy changing a flat on the other side of the road. It’s time to raise the bar. It’s time to enact tougher licensing procedures that require people to prove they should be entrusted with your life and my life when they operate a vehicle. This is not a call for lower speed limits, fewer passing zones, more traffic lights or any of the other things we typically do to try to make our roads safer. Those moves attack the effect rather than the cause. The way to make our roads safer is really simple: Produce better drivers. That’s not really all that difficult, although it will require a new attitude and a whole new acceptance that safely operating a vehicle isn’t as easy as we’ve been pretending it is. Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death among American teens 15-20. Between 3,000 and 4,000 of us are killed on the road and well over 30,000 are killed or seriously injured just about every single year. It’s time we did something about that by getting to the cause of the problem, not reacting to the effect. Not doing so isn’t just dumb, it’s criminally negligent.
