WASHINGTON — After weeks of intense partisanship, Republican congressional leaders and the White House made a last-minute stab at compromise Saturday to avoid a government default threatened for early next week. But there was no undisputed evidence of progress by day’s end, only expressions of anxiety among lawmakers that a potentially crippling blow to the nation’s economy was drawing un-

Rarely used Pa. death penalty costly

Death row has cost taxpayers more than $27 million since 1999, the last time an execution was carried out.

George Banks as he appeared in April 2010. The WilkesBarre man is jailed at the state’s Graterford Correctional Institution, facing execution for the Sept. 25, 1982, shooting rampage that killed 13 people in Wilkes-Barre and Jenkins Township. The state Office of Attorney General asked the state Supreme Court in April 2010 to overturn a Luzerne County judge’s ruling that declared mass murderer George Banks incompetent to be executed.

By RILEY YATES The (Allentown) Morning Call

ALLENTOWN — It has been 12 years since Pennsylvania executed a convicted killer, but in that time, death row has still cost taxpayers more than $27 million. Every year, the state Department of Corrections spends an estimated $10,000 more for each inmate on the country’s fourth largest death row compared to other prisoners. That’s despite a de facto halt on capital punishment in Pennsylvania for all but prisoners who voluntarily go to their executions. The last person put to death against his will was in 1962, half a century ago.

LOCAL Four post office branches in Luzerne County on review list

Local offices’ fate not sealed yet By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Four Luzerne County post offices are on a list of branches to be reviewed for possible closure or consolidation that was issued last week by the U.S. Postal Service, but that doesn’t mean their fates are sealed. That’s the point Postal Service officials are trying to make days after they released a list of nearly 3,700 post offices to be studied for performance and po-

tential closure. The branches are mostly in rural areas but some are in larger cities including Philadelphia, New York and Chicago. Locally, they include the Rock Glen and Weston post offices, the only two situated in Black Creek Township; Beach Haven, Salem Township and the one in Cambra, Huntington Township. Post offices in every state but Delaware are on the list, but Postal Service officials repeatedly said that inclusion

on the list is not a guarantee that a post office will close. And past actions resulting following the release of previous lists bear that out. Raymond Daiutolo Sr., a regional Postal Service spokesman, noted that the postal service announced in January it was reviewing 1,400 offices for closing. So far 280 have been closed and 200 have finished the review process and will remain open. Of the remainder,

620 are still in the review process and 300 will move to the new review list.” Daiutolo said the latest list was generated “using some very sophisticated criteria” including sales, foot traffic, location and proximity to other post offices. The list was sent to district officials who are now tasked with conducting a more thorough study on each of the branches. See POSTAL, Page 6A

SCRANTON – Roman Catholics have regained the ability to purchase items from “The Guild” store without making a trip to Scranton, thanks to a new online option offered by the 71-year-old purveyor of religious items. The move restores a convenience lost over the last two decades as six branch stores throughout the 11-county Diocese of Scranton were shut down to save money. “People have asked for this,” store General Manager Trish Morrow said. “We’re basically hoping to make it easier for people to shop if they aren’t able to come to Scranton.” The Guild was established in Scranton by Bishop William Hafey in 1940. It offers Catholic books, church goods and religious articles for both clergy and laypersons. It expanded over the years, moving to a larger Scranton Wyoming Avenue location with 7,500 square feet in 1958, and setting up smaller branch stores in six locations. The last of those branches closed a decade ago, Morrow said. “Hazleton, Carbondale and Williamsport locations were closed around 1992,” Morrow said, “Wilkes-Barre, Tannersville and Allentown were closed in 2001.” The new website, www.shoptheguild.org, offers “several thousand items,” Morrow said. A substantial amount, but a far cry from about 65,000 in the Scranton store’s database. The plan is to keep adding items to the online outlet. The online option became possible only in the last two years, after the Guild got new computers that could handle the work, Morrow said. Once they were installed, the website had to be built and offerings cataloged onto it. The diocese formally announced the new site in Thursday’s edition of its newspaper, The Catholic Light, but Morrow said the site has been up and running for several weeks. It’s too soon to judge the success, Morrow noted, but she cited national statistics that show the percentage of shopping being done online is growing by double digits. “It’s off to a good start,” she added.

Bank fighting child hunger First National Community Bank and the Commission on Economic Opportunity are working together on a program to fight child hunger in Northeastern Pennsylvania. During August, the bank will be collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations at its 21 branches in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe and Wayne counties for CEO’s Backpack Program. The program provides emergency food assistance for children during the weekends or other times when school is not in session. The food is placed in backpacks for students to carry home and removes the stigma a child might experience by carrying home a bag of groceries. The filled backpacks will be provided through local schools, churches and after-school programs, reducing the delay between parents receiving a referral to a food pantry, getting to the pantry and preparing the food at home. Donations suitable for the program include individual-size items of: granola/cereal bars; dry milk powder; instant breakfast/oatmeal; fat-free pudding; unsweetened apple sauce; Jello with fruit; peanut butter and jelly; 100 percent fruit juice boxes; dried fruit; crackers; canned good; and macaroni and cheese.

View of GOP senators is shifting Many Senate members were first elected before the tea party wave last year. By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Before January, Democrats often portrayed the Senate Republican majority as extremists bent on gutting programs crucial to Pennsylvania or blocking common-sense proposals. This year, with the GOP freshly in control of the governor’s office and the House of Representatives, the same Senate majority and its same leaders are broadly viewed as the voice of moderation at a time conservatives are increasingly flexing their muscles. “It wouldn’t surprise me to hear them say, ‘We didn’t move an inch. We’re the pole that the rest of them are rotating around and we’re staying where we were and staying the course and sticking to principles our caucus believes in,”’ said David Patti, the president and CEO of the Pennsylvania Business Council, a business advocacy group. It’s all about your perspective. Conservative grumbling this year about the Senate GOP is well-known — if relatively muted since the budget became law a month ago — and their leaders are considered by some Democrats and liberal groups to be the most accessible, if not sympathetic, in Republican-controlled Harrisburg. For anyone looking for differences between the Senate, the House and the governor, there’s this: Many of the Senate’s 30 members were first elected well before the tea party wave last year helped usher Corbett and 21 House GOP freshmen into office. In fact, the newest Republican senators joined the chamber in 2009. Their districts are larger and more diverse than those of House members. And, institutionally, they’ve been in the majority for practically three decades, putting them at the nego-

GEORGETOWN, Guyana — Flight 523 from New York had just touched down and passengers were applauding the pilot’s landing in the South American country Saturday when something suddenly went wrong. The Boeing 737-800 slid off the end of a rainy runway, crashed through a chain-link fence and broke in half just short of a deep ravine. Yet all 163 people on board survived. Officials were starting to probe the cause of the crash

even as they marveled at the lack of fatalities. “We must be the luckiest country and luckiest set of people in the world to escape so lightly,” said Health Minister Leslie Ramsammy, who said more than 30 people were taken to the hospital. Only three of those had to be admitted for a broken leg, bumps, cuts and bruises. The Caribbean Airlines plane had left John F. Kennedy International Airport Friday evening and made a stop in Trinidad before landing in Guyana. The airline said it was

carrying 157 passengers and six crew members. Geeta Ramsingh, 41, of Philadelphia, recalled how applause at the arrival quickly “turned to screams.” “The plane sped up as if attempting to take off again. It is then that I smelled gas in the cabin and people started to shout and holler,” she said. The plane came to rest off the end of the 7,400-foot runway at Cheddi Jagan International Airport, which sits on a AP PHOTO ridge in forested region just south of the oceanfront capital The broken fuselage of a Caribbean Airlines’ Boeing 737-800 of nearly 300,000 people. is seen after it crashed Saturday in Timehri, Guyana.

Norway has told investigators he also considered attacking other targets linked to the government or the prime minister’s Labor Party, police said Saturday. During a 10-hour questioning session on Friday, Anders Behring Breivik asked interrogators how many people he had killed in the July 22 attacks, and “showed no emotion” when they told him, police attorney Paal-Fredrik Hjort Kraby told reporters in Oslo.

CAIRO, EGYPT

Venue change for trial

Hosni Mubarak’s trial on charges he ordered the killing of protesters during Egypt’s uprising will be held at a police academy on Cairo’s outskirts instead of a convention center in the heart of the capital, the head of Cairo’s appeals court said Saturday. The change appears to be linked to concerns over security during the ousted leader’s trial, which is scheduled to begin Wednesday and is sure to draw a large audience. The 83-year-old expresident is to stand trial alongside his security chief and six other senior security officials facing the same charges stemming from the crackdown that killed hundreds but failed to stop the 18-day uprising that forced Mubarak from power on Feb. 11.

Rink victims mourned

Four siblings killed in a shooting rampage at a Texas roller rink were remembered Saturday as a part of a tight-knit family, even as the hundreds gathered in an Arkansas church to mourn them tried to make sense of the tragedy. More than 400 people attended a service for Trini Do, 29, her sisters, Lynn Ta, 16, and Michelle Ta, 28, and her brother, Hien Ta, 21. Trini Do’s estranged husband, Tan Do, 35, shot her and her siblings during a birthday party for their 11-year-old son and then killed himself. Police in Grand Prairie, Texas, have said they believe the shooting was planned and followed years of domestic violence. Trini Do received a protective order in December against her husband, but she had it withdrawn earlier this year against a prosecutor’s advice and wanted to give him another chance, an aunt has said.

Louisiana state police say an 8-yearold boy was driving a pickup truck down an interstate while his drunken father slept in the passenger seat. Troopers say the man’s 4-year-old daughter was in the back seat when the truck was stopped Saturday morning in Livingston Parish. The child’s driving was so erratic that it alarmed motorists, who called authorities. The children have been handed over to Louisiana Child Protective Services. The father, 28-year-old Billy Joe Madden of Hattiesburg, Miss., was booked into the Livingston Parish Jail on charges including Child Desertion and Allowing a Minor to Drive. It was not clear Saturday afternoon if he had an attorney.

MAI-AINI, Ethiopia — As the world focuses on famine in Somalia, Eritrea suffers in silence. Eritrea, a nation of 5 million people that borders Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti, has also seen failed rains and widespread food shortages. But its autocratic government, which faces international sanctions, refuses to acknowledge a drought has swept its territory. Satellite images show that the Red Sea nation has

been hit by drought conditions similar to those in Somalia, Ethiopia and Djibouti. Nearly 1,000 Eritreans arrived at a refugee camp in northern Ethiopia in July alone, officials said. U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Johnnie Carson, said last week that many of the Eritrean refugees crossing borders into Sudan and Ethiopia suffer from malnutrition. He urged the reclusive Eritrean regime, led by longtime President Isaias Afwerki, to address the hunger and work with humanitarian organizations to prevent catastrophe. Over the last few years, more than 48,000 Eritreans have fled to Ethiopia. Refugees said their families haven’t AP PHOTO been able to buy food from the government for the last three months and that Amino Said, 5, sits in a hospital in food prices have spiraled.

KILLEEN, Texas — Ultimately, it was the keen eye of a Texas gun shop clerk that helped authorities find an AWOL soldier who’d stashed bomb-making material in his nearby motel room for a planned attack on Fort Hood soldiers. The tip that led Killeen police to Pfc. Naser Abdo on Wednesday prevented what could have been the second terrorist attack on the Army post, following a 2009 shooting rampage in which an Army psychiatrist is charged with killing 13 people. Earlier this year in Texas, a shipping company that told the FBI about a suspicious order for a chemical explosive foiled an alleged plot to blow up former President George W. Bush’s Dallas home. “A vigilant public and informed local law enforcement make it much more complicated for people wishing to carry out attacks to do so,” said John Cohen, principal deputy counterterrorism adviser at the Homeland Security Department. Federal and local law enforcement agencies have established programs over the past decade that encourage the public to report suspicious activity. Abdo, 21, who went absent without leave from Fort Campbell, Ky., early this month, was arrested Wednesday at a motel outside Fort Hood and charged with possession of an unregistered destructive device. Police say he was perhaps only a day away from unleashing bombs in a restaurant frequented by soldiers and attacking the Army post.

Unrest in Libya, Syria offers no easy answers for U.S. By BRADLEY KLAPPER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Five months after President Barack Obama told him to leave Libya, Moammar Gadhafi is pressing on against NATO-backed rebel forces, flaunting his remaining power in the face of Western nations fearful of combatting him with greater force. And four months after Obama offered Syria’s leader an ultimatum to lead reform or leave, Bashar Assad’s crackdown on dis-

sent rages on. Through intervention or engagement, the U.S. is stuck with inconclusive results in both countries. The unclear endgame in each is constraining the actions of everyone involved — including the United States. Coming out with guns blazing failed to deliver an early knockout punch to Gadhafi. Engagement has proved similarly ineffectual directed toward Assad. Libya’s war has become a quagmire.

For the U.S., policy options are limited. It has already played its military card, leading the early stages of NATO’s intervention by bombing Gadhafi’s air defense capabilities. In Syria, the president and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s rhetoric has dismissed any lingering hopes that Assad’s government might be persuaded to start a serious democratic reAP FILE PHOTO form process and pull back an aggressive nationwide campaign to snuff out Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi gesdissent. tures to his supporters in Tripoli.

Daiutolo said. Even after a site is selected for closure, there’s still a chance for an appeal to the Postal Regulatory Committee before any closing would take place, he added. “At the earliest, with all the timelines we’re working with, none of these branches would close before December,” he said. The list released Tuesday, which contains the names of 203 Pennsylvania locations, is the third grouping of postal retail facilities facing possible closure issued since 2009. From the 2009 list of about 3,600, 140 eventually closed, Daiutolo said. Among

them were two locally, Ashley and Dickson City. If post offices are slated to close, the postal service said residents will still receive mail and be able to purchase stamps locally. In communities without a post office, the Postal Service plans to sell stamps and offer services through local retailers such as grocers, convenience stores or other popular gathering places. Residents in Luzerne County that have P.O. boxes at the four post offices under review, would be changed to home delivery of mail and would likely see their zip codes replaced by ones from

nearby Columbia County communities such as Bloomsburg, Stillwater, Benton or Berwick. Bonnie Adams, a Black Creek Township supervisor and a box holder at the Rock Glen Post Office, said residents need to speak out and organize petition drives

or campaigns to save their post office. The four post offices on the list located in Luzerne County serve only a few hundred people; Cambra has 35 P.O. boxes. The Postal Service, solely supported by postage revenue, has seen its funding stream on the

decline as technology has allowed people to communicate through email, social networking and text messages. The service is looking at the restructuring as a way to stave off a reported record deficit of up to $9 billion this year.

Monsignor says homeless situation is a crisis Executive director of Catholic Social Services feels too many cuts are being made. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Monsignor Joseph Kelly said he usually sees the glass half full, but he said the local crisis affecting the homeless and those in need is getting worse every day. “There’s no sense trying to sugar coat it,” Kelly said. “We are in a crisis and it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Local communities will be ex-

pected to pick up the responsibility of helping our brothers and sisters.” Kelly, executive director of Kelly Catholic Social Services for the Scranton Diocese, said he doesn’t see a simple solution because state and federal funding is being cut when more and more people are in need. “There are going to be more incidences of homelessness, food insecurity and less and less programming for children,” Kel-

ly said. The Scranton Diocese operates a homeless shelter in Scranton, but in Luzerne County, Mother Therese’s Haven – formerly VISION – moves from church to church on a weekly basis. Kelly said it is more expensive to keep moving the shelter and more difficult to get the clients to appointments usually in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Kelly said the diocese was looking for a permanent location for a shelter in WilkesBarre, but with drastic funding cuts, the chance of that happening has diminished. “I’m not sure where we’re go-

ing to go,” Kelly said. “There’s insufficient money being provided for individual men and women and absolutely minimal money for sheltering of families,” Kelly said. Kelly said not only are more people coming to places like the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen for meals, there has been a significant spike in the number of people coming to Mother Therese’s Haven for shelter. “Just when REACH, Inc. closed, we had moved a lot of our homeless men to transitional living,” Kelly said. “But all of our beds were immediately filled by new people.”

Kelly said the sagging economy is the main reason for the increased demand for services. “I just spoke to a 31-year-old man who told me he’s been homeless six times this year,” Kelly said. He said he wants to work and is physically able to work, but he can’t find a job.” Kelly said Mother Therese’s Haven has 28 men staying there at night. He said there have been increased demands for health care as well. He said more than 200 people were at the McKinney Clinic above the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen just the other night. “The demand is extremely

high,” Kelly said. “Donations are needed. Our funding has been cut by 62 percent.” He had said Catholic Social Services, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, United Way and the Commission on Economic Opportunity have been discussing a way to establish a permanent homeless shelter for men. Kelly had hoped to have something operating by the fall, but he’s not as optimistic now. While Kelly said there is nothing new on finding a permanent shelter location in downtown Wilkes-Barre, he said it is a priority and he believes it will happen soon.

NEED Continued from Page 1A

Cutbacks in state funding for programs that help those in need and the lack of a central shelter where the homeless can crash at night has exasperated an already critical situation. McCawley said the demand for meals has increased dramatically over the last month. “We have been serving more than 400 lunches per day and our evening meal has gone from 125 servings to more than 300,” McCawley said of the recent increase in visitors. “More and more people are losing their jobs. They come in and tell us that they have never had to ask for help before. I’ve never seen our kitchen so crowded.” John Patterson, 54, a Scranton resident, is now homeless and has been coming to the kitchen for meals for about a month. He’s looking for work and until he finds a job, he’s been forced to camp out. “I keep clean though,” he said. “I make sure I get a shower every day. I’ve been working one day a week at the Farmers Market. I’ll find something soon, I hope.” John R. Cool, 56, of Edwardsville, was standing with Patterson.

As more people come to the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen for meals, the demand for food to serve has also increased, McCawley said. “So far we’re keeping up with the demand,” she said. “But we

She said that will place an even greater need for donations. “These are extremely tough times,” McCawley said. “People don’t realize that these funding cuts are coming at a time when the demand is rising dramatically.” McCawley said more people are in need and she urged elected officials “to do something.” Bryan Hogan, 49, is a former homeless man who now lives in Kingston. Hogan was a frequent visitor to REACH, which closed a month ago because of a funding shortage. The homeless drop-in center was in St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, about four blocks from the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen. He said he doesn’t see many

Coach has to keep water polo afloat at Valley West Wyoming Valley West water polo goalie Bill Newhart defends a shot during practice at the high school in Plymouth.

By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

PLYMOUTH – Frank Tribendis has coached boys and girls swimming at Wyoming Valley West for 42 years. For the last 16 years, Tribendis has also coached boys and girls water polo. The funding for water polo – about $13,000 – has been eliminated by the WVW School Board, causing everyone from team members to coaches to parents to supporters to jump in the pool and help raise money to keep the water polo program above water. “The school board has been supportive and the parents group – WVW Aquatic Parents – has already raised about $4,000 so far,” Tribendis said. “If we can get to $10,000 we can keep the program.” Tribendis, who retired from teaching six years ago, said about 40 students participate in the water polo program and in 1999 the girls’ team won the state championship. Sally Anne Kaminski of Edwardsville, is a former WVW swimmer and water polo player who doesn’t want the program to

Wyoming Valley West water polo coach Frank Tribendis, upper left, and assistant coach Bill Williams conduct a team meeting at the conclusion of practice at the high school pool in Plymouth.

“You really have to be very dedicated to play water polo,” she said. Kaminski urged her fellow Class of 2005 members to donate to the program and try to get other donations to keep the sport alive. “I wouldn’t have been both a col-

legiate swimmer and in a nursing program without Coach Tribendis or water polo,” she said. “The formula is tough sport plus tough coach equals great college success.” Tribendis also talked about past

athletes he’s coached like Corey and Shana Welch who both went on to major colleges – Corey to the University of Florida and Shana to the University of Michigan. Shana has played professional water polo, Tribendis said.

source. … “If we take care of our birds and they’re not running down Market Street or Pierce Street, and there’s no roosters, why can’t we provide food for our families?” she said. Spurred by a renewed interest in organic farming and sustainable development, curiosity in keeping backyard chickens is on the rise across the country. The movement has taken hold in large urban centers such as Brooklyn, N.Y., and has prompted home farmers in communities such as Madison, Wis., and Portland, Maine, to successfully overturn prohibitions on raising chickens in their communities. Rose White, a worker at Tractor Supply Co. in Hanover Township, said the phenomenon appears to be catching on locally. The retailer sells chicken feed, hen boxes, egg incubators and other chicken-raising supplies and in April sells live chicks. “A lot more people from the city of Nanticoke are coming in to buy feed, and they’re buying it in small enough quantities that I assume they’re doing it themselves,” said White, adding that she keeps chickens at Lake Silkworth.

er farm animals in Kingston would not enhance – and would probably detract – from the quality of life of residents. “Clearly, farm animals or livestock – and that goes for iguanas and exotic pets, too – clearly they do not belong in a high-density residential community,” Keating said. “It doesn’t have any meaningful use in this community. We don’t have any rural zones in this community that can support raising farm animals. So I would be highly opposed to ever allowing livestock or breeding in this community.” Swoyersville Zoning Officer Joe Ruscavage said his borough’s ordinance banning chickens went into effect in1976, and was likely enacted because the sound and smell produced by chickens and farm animals would create a public nuisance. “Unfortunately, things have changed since the ’40s and ’50s,” he said.

Municipal restrictions Kapral-Kelly said she plans to seek a zoning variance to allow her to keep chickens in Kingston, but eventually she hopes local municipal leaders will overturn zoning ordinances banning the keeping of hens, which aren’t as noisy or likely to become a nuisance as their male counterparts. Of the municipalities where Kapral-Kelly said her aspiring chicken-farmer friends live, only Forty Fort does not prohibit keeping chickens. Ordinances in Swoyersville and Wilkes-Barre specifically prohibit the keeping of chickens, while Kingston’s ordinance states that “farm animals other than customary pets shall not be kept in residential districts.” Kingston Administrator Paul Keating said prohibition of farm animals has been in the municipality’s zoning ordinance since the late 1970s.

The director of marketing and development for The Lands at Hillside Farms said keeping chickens at home perfectly coincides with the historic farm’s mission of promoting healthy, conservation-minded and practical lifestyle choices. She said municipalities should be promoting those sorts of choices as well. She said hens would not create a nuisance or detract from quality of life because they do not make as much noise as roosters, which aren’t required for chickens to produce edible eggs.

2 will plead guilty to stealing firearms from dealer By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Two Luzerne County men indicted on charges they stole guns from a firearms dealer last December will plead guilty, according to documents filed in federal court Friday.

Jerome Sharr, 20, of WilkesBarre and David Toney, 19, of Hanover Township asked that their presentence reports be prepared prior to their pleas. They also requested to be sentenced immediately following their pleas. The two men were scheduled to

go to trial on Sept. 27 in U.S. District Court, Scranton. Their attorneys said they advised the men of their right to a trial by jury and that the charges had to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. The attorneys added that the two men reviewed the government’s evidence against them and Sharr and Toney intend to plead guilty to the charges.

A federal grand jury indicted the men on June 21 on charges they stole 12 handguns from American Sport Shooting in Brodheadsville on Dec. 29. Sharr also was charged with being a felon in possession of firearms. Prior to the indictment, state police filed charges against the two men for burglarizing the business. Sharr allegedly rammed a ve-

hicle into a garage door until it buckled to get inside the business, according to state police. He and Toney were caught by state police on Dec. 30 after a pursuit that began in Dallas. State police said three of the stolen handguns were sold at a motel in Plains Township and were later recovered from a residence on East Beatty Street in Wilkes-Barre

where they also found crack and powder cocaine and ecstasy pills. In addition to the federal charges, Sharr faces burglary and theft charges for break-ins in Bear Creek Township and Mountain Top. Since the indictment Sharr and Toney were ordered to be held in federal custody pending their trial.

Mae Thomas of Wilkes-Barre, left, whose mother survived the 1912 Titanic disaster, speaks at ’The Last Dinner on the Titanic.’

Family’s ‘Titanic’ ordeal recalled WILKES-BARRE – The meticulously restored Fredrick Stegmaier Mansion hosted a re-enactment of last meal served aboard the R.M.S. Titanic on Saturday night as part of The Passion Project’s event series. Wilkes-Barre resident Mae Thomas, 86, whose mother, brother and uncle were aboard the ship when it sank in the North Atlantic on the morning of April 15, 1912, gave a special presentation. She has been recounting tales of the disaster for many years. Her family operated the Thomas C. Thomas produce company in Wilkes-Barre for a number of years. Thomas said her uncle Alexander Thomas was escorting her 18-year-old mother, Thelma, who spoke only Arabic, and infant brother Assid from their home country of Lebanon. They boarded the Titanic in Cherbourg, France, to begin the maiden voyage to America. Thomas said her uncle per-

ished in the disaster. Her mother and infant brother were put into separate lifeboats. Due to a language barrier, Thelma Thomas was not reunited with her infant son for several weeks after the disaster and she spent nearly three months in a New York City hospital recovering. “My mother was actually reunited with Mrs. MacKenzie, the woman who cared for my brother during that time, on the ‘Today’ show featuring a group of Titanic survivors 60 years after the fact,” Thomas said. “It was amazing because (local radio personality) David DeCosmo organized the reunion for my mother.” “As a family, we are very grateful to Mrs. MacKenzie,” she said. Unfortunately, Thomas said, her bother Assid died of pneumonia at the age of 21, never fully recovering from his ordeal. The Passion Project, the brainchild of local authors Lisa Lewis and John Grant, organizes special culinary events centered on various themes and historical events.

For most, debt mess showing D.C.’s awful side This whole wrenching effort to shrink the debt may actually increase the debt. A N A LY S I S By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent

WASHINGTON — There is no changing how Washington works. It doesn’t. Even if a bitterly divided Congress and President Barack Obama avoid a U.S. debt default by striking a last-second deal, as all sides expect, plenty of damage has been done. People are disgusted. Confidence in the political system is tanking. Nothing else is getting done in Washington. The markets are spooked. The global reputation of the United States has slipped. And the real kicker? This whole wrenching effort to shrink the debt may actually increase the debt. Any emergency deal may not be broad enough to prevent the major credit rating agencies from

downgrading the United States as a rock-solid investment. That, in turn, could increase the cost of borrowing for the government (hence more interest and debt), not to mention for everyone else. The spectacle has brought Washington to its knees. Obama went on TV before the nation and called it a circus. One lawmaker felt compelled to apologize to the American people. “I can only imagine the anger and disgust they have,” said Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, “at witnessing a broken government and a president and members of Congress who can’t seem to even agree sometimes on what day it is, let alone to solve the nation’s debt crisis.” That about sums it up. Polls show people’s trust in government is at one of its worst levels in decades. An ABC/Washington Post survey this month found that a whopping 80 percent of people were angry or dissatisfied with the federal government. About a decade ago, it wasn’t half that high.

Pleading for the parties to work together for the American people, Obama said, “That’s the least that they should expect of us, not the most that they should expect of us.” Achieving the least is proving nearly impossible. This Washington moment began as something big — a bipartisan effort to put a real dent in the long-term debt by taking on political issues that are genuinely tough for both parties. It has now devolved into a panicky debate over whether the nation’s debt limit will be raised by Tuesday so the country can pay its bills. Voters, remember, want their leaders to be focused on jobs. The goal of preventing a self-inflicted economic catastrophe is hardly a standard of excellence. When this is all over, politicians will claim credit wherever they can, and blame their opponents for the long, embarrassing spectacle. And the public will assign blame, deciding whether those pushing compromise will be rewarded as eminently sensible or

punished for caving. That misses the point. In the biggest sense, everyone has lost. “We have now taken a process that was not getting a lot of attention and convinced people that this is not the usual shenanigans. It is farcical and utterly dysfunctional,” said Norman Ornstein, a political science scholar at the American Enterprise who has long examined Washington’s ways. “Whatever they pull out here in the end, that image isn’t going to change.” Consider some of the many ways Washington has not been able to escape itself: • Given the huge issues at stake, from the size of the debt to the role of government, voters might have hoped for a big, open debate of ideas. What they have had instead is a confusing process that’s playing out in secret or in strident statements to the press. • Congress, as usual, is exhausting all of its partisan options before truly considering a potential agreement in the final

House with Obama and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. The renewed negotiations occurred on one track, while another pointed the Senate toward a test vote on legislation to raise the debt limit while cutting spending by $2.4 trillion. The vote was delayed from 1 a.m. today to 1 p.m. That measure was introduced by Reid but opposed by Republicans, who vowed to prevent it from advancing. Adding further confusion, the White House declined comment on the day’s developments. That left prospects for a compromise murky. But late Saturday night, Reid said compromise negotiations were going on at the White House.

Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, although he told them they would continue to go to work each day. Without legislation in place by next Tuesday, administration officials say the Treasury will run out of funds to pay all the nation’s bills. They say a subsequent default could prove catastrophic for the U.S. economy and send shockwaves around the world. The president is seeking legislation to raise the government’s $14.3 trillion debt limit by about $2.4 trillion, enough to tide the Treasury over until after the 2012 elections. Over many weeks, he has agreed to Republican demands that deficits be cut — without a requirement for tax increases — in exchange for additional U.S. borrowing authority. But Obama has threatened to veto any legislation that would require a second vote in Congress for any additional borrowing authority to take effect, saying that would invite a recurrence of the current crisis in the heat of next year’s election campaigns. Saturday’s developments opened with Obama saying, “There is very little time” in his weekly radio and Internet address. A few hours later, House Republican leaders engineered a vote to defeat a Reid-drafted proposal to raise the debt limit

on a near-party line vote at midafternoon. Arguing into the night, Republicans stood ready to block the same measure’s advance in the Senate. Reid accused Republicans of filibustering, and it appeared he was hoping to find enough defectors in the GOP ranks so he could overcome the blockade. In contrast to McConnell, Reid said individual Republicans had shown a willingness to compromise. Indeed, some Republicans expressed concerns about the effects of gridlock. “I’m worried about Congress defaulting on our country,” said Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga. He suggested terms of a possible compromise and urged fellow lawmakers to find common ground. Sen. Robert Casey, D-Scranton, was also among those calling for compromise. “The American people watching this over so many days now understand the basic challenge we face,” said Casey. “It’s a challenge of reducing the deficit and debt and cutting spending, but also of making sure that we have

a bipartisan agreement to pay our bills and meet our obligations. And I think if I had to boil it down to four words, it is this in terms of what people in Pennsylvania have told me that we must do: compromise for our country.” With financial markets closed for the weekend, lawmakers had a little breathing room, but not much. Asian markets begin opening for the new work week when it is late Sunday afternoon in the capital. In his remarks at a news conference, McConnell said Obama “needs to indicate what he will sign, and we are in those discussions.” He said later he had spoken several times during the day with Vice President Joe Biden, who played a prominent role in earlier attempts to break the gridlock that has pushed the country to the verge of an unprecedented default. Boehner said that despite the partisanship of recent weeks, “I think we’re dealing with reasonable, responsible people who want this crisis to end as quickly as possible and I’m confident it will.”

To get to the endgame, Republicans and Democrats had to go through the formality of killing each other’s bills — scoring their own political points — before they could turn to meaningful negotiations. Still, the sudden talk of compromise contrasted sharply with the day’s earlier developments as both the House and Senate convened for unusual Saturday sessions. The House voted down legislation drafted by Democrat Reid to raise the government’s debt limit by $2.4 trillion and cut spending by the same amount. The vote was 246-173, mostly along party lines and after debate filled with harsh, partisan remarks. Republicans said the Reid spending-cuts plan was filled with gimmicks and would make unacceptable reductions in Pentagon accounts. “It offers no real solutions to the out-of-control spending problems,” said Rep. Alan Nunnelee of Mississippi, part of a group of 87 firstterm Republicans who have led the push for deeper spending cuts. Republican Reps. Lou Barlet-

hours. That’s viewed as normal, or even helpful, in Washington. A weary country, meanwhile, is getting daily updates about what it would mean to live with the first default in the country’s history. • Boehner suspended the voting on his own bill so that he could find a way to snag the final votes he needed. The House switched to naming post offices as time slipped away. A White House official said this is why people hate Washington. Boehner’s office said it showed reform for Washington: At least he didn’t try to ram the bill through in the dead of night. • Obama is getting bashed for not putting his own plan on paper. The White House claims to do that would be to ensure its defeat, because Republicans cannot publicly support whatever Obama does. • The president said the world is watching. Allies are actually cringing. The international community is seeing a superpower bicker and flail in its attempt to reduce its staggering debt. • The embarrassing stalemate ta of Hazleton and Tom Marino of Lycoming Township joined the solid opposition by House Republicans to the Reid plan. “Sen. Reid’s plan is flawed because it relies on phantom savings from war funding that was never set to be spent anyway,” Barletta said. “I cannot support this bill because it does not cut enough federal spending. Americans want real spending controls, not accounting gimmicks, which is what the Reid bill is.” Not even Democrats seemed to like the legislation very much, although many emerged from a closed-door meeting of the rank and file saying they would vote for it. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, called it “the least worst alternative to avoid default.” Yet with their votes, many Democrats signaled their readiness for compromise by voting to cut spending without raising taxes. Many Republicans insist taxes must not be raised to cut into federal deficits, even for the wealthiest Americans and for big oil companies. In remarks on the House floor, Rep. David Dreier, R-Calif., said the vote itself could be prelude to a final effort at compromise that would involve the White House and the leaders of both parties. Across the Capitol, the Senate marked the hours before a scheduled test vote at 1 a.m. Sunday on the same measure. There was no doubt about the outcome there, either, unless compromise intervened. A total of 43 Republicans sent Reid a letter saying they would block the bill from advancing, enough to prevail. With both parties’ preferred solutions blocked, the only alternatives were compromise that was so far elusive or a default that no one claimed to want. The day’s events in the House were orchestrated as political payback, and unusual at that, since Republicans lined up to kill legislation that hadn’t even cleared the Senate. Less than 24 hours earlier, Reid had engineered the demise of a House-passed bill hours after it passed, and without so much as a debate on its merit. Pelosi said Boehner “chose to go to the dark side” when he changed his own legislation to satisfy tea party lawmakers and other critics. There were catcalls from the Republican side of the aisle at that, and Pelosi responded by repeating that the speaker “chose to go to the dark side.” Republicans ridiculed Reid’s legislation. “Not only does it fail to address our spending and debt problem, it won’t even prevent a downgrade of our credit rating,” said Rep. Scott Garrett, RN.J. “We need actual cuts to government spending to address our long-term debt crisis, not phantom cuts and accounting gimmicks.” Times Leader Washington correspondent Jonathan Riskind contributed to this report.

follows a breathless budget clash between the parties that came close to shutting down the government. And with the nation still stuck in a rut on job creation, there is little reason to be hopeful for a bipartisan economic agenda between now and the presidential and congressional elections in November 2012. • The voices of moderation in both parties have been disappearing, in part because of election districts drawn to favor sharply one party of the other. Ornstein predicts the next election will bring only more polarization. “This is not exactly a shining moment for America,” he said. Obama likes to remind voters that they had better intentions than this when they put Democrats in control of the White House and Senate and Republicans in charge of the House. “The American people may have voted for divided government, but they didn’t vote for a dysfunctional government,” the president says. Too bad they got both.

President urges two parties to cooperate By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Claiming that the two parties aren’t that far apart, President Barack Obama is urging Democratic and Republican lawmakers to reach a deal quickly to keep the government from defaulting on payments to veterans, Social Security recipients and others. “There is very little time” he said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address. The Republican-controlled House on Friday passed a bill aimed at avoiding a debt default, voting 218-210 almost entirely along party lines. In the Republican radio address, Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl said it’s important for the country to avoid debt default, but said Democrats need to work more closely with Republicans. “Republicans have tried to work with Democrats to avoid this result and put our country on a better path, but we need them to work with us,” Kyl said. “Unfortunately, after weeks of negotiations, it became clear that Democrats in Washington did not view this crisis as an opportunity to rein in spending,” he said. “Instead, they saw it as an opportunity to impose huge tax increases on American families and small businesses.” Obama insists that borrowing authority extend through 2013, beyond next year’s presidential campaign. The Democratic-controlled Senate, with help from some Republicans, quickly rejected the House bill on Friday. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., had an alternative measure to cut spending by $2.4 trillion and raise the debt limit by an equal amount, enough to meet Obama’s demand that there not be another vote on government borrowing next year. “The time for putting party first is over,” Obama said. “The time for compromise on behalf of the American people is now.”

ell, here I am, watching the most highly paid construction crew ever assembled build my dream home. It took a while, but finally I got my plans worked out with a committee of the world’s leading architects. Now as fabulously expensive and exotic woods and other building materials are being brought in by heavy-lift helicopters I’m busy trying to visualize the final product. It’s actually going to be fairly retro, though. Trendy neighbors probably wouldn’t like it. Instead of sending the welcome wagon, they’d rally on my sidewalk with packs of dogs and burning torches, screaming something like “curse you, monster of 1940s taste.” But I’d snicker. Truly, I believe that designers of the past were on to something, at least something that makes sense to me. So here’s what my personal dream home would have. A wrap-around porch: I drive all over to look at nice homes, and I faithfully read The Times Leader’s home stories. I have yet to see a big, comfy-looking wrap-around porch on a fancy-shmancy house. What happened to them, I don’t know, but it’s a tragedy. I live on my porch as much as possible during warm weather, sprawled in my glider, iced tea nearby, reading a book or magazine and chatting with neighbors. When I was a kid, my parents’ home had a fantastic L-shaped porch, with a solid railing so that on a stifling night you could actually sleep out there. A sitting room: I’ll bet most people younger than 50 today don’t know what a “sitting room” is. So listen up: it was a minor-league version of your living room, and probably right next to it, usually accessed through a side door. You’d welcome guests there when the occasion (or the guests) did not warrant disturbing the doilies on the living room furniture. It was also the place where the family gathered to listen to “Jack Benny” or “Big Town” on the Silvertone console radio. Other functions included: kids’ playroom; place to grab a nap on the old couch; music listening room (on the wind-up Victrola); or whatever other purpose you wanted, including drying out umbrellas. A cellar and an attic: When I meet people whose houses have no cellars or attics, I’m appalled. Where do they put their model railroads? Where do they store out-of-season decorations? You can’t beat a cellar for half-used cans of paint whose original purpose you don’t recall. Show me a garden shed – however enormous – that can do those things. I’m especially fond of attics. A good attic is a veritable history of your personal life. It holds the first book you bought, your grade school graduation pin, the gift appliance you forgot about until you bought another one that was on sale. I’d wander about in existential haze without a dusty third floor. Say, this place is getting pretty big. I can tell you one thing my dream home wouldn’t have, though: walk-in closets. If you have that much clothing, you probably ought to give more stuff to charity drives. The home in which I grew up had two little hallway closets – one for each pair of bedrooms. It also wouldn’t have an “entertainment and communications center.” The computer and the TV are not on speaking terms. Hey, I must have fallen asleep over the paper’s “Homes” section and started dreaming again. I think I’ll turn to the story about the federal deficit talks. That’s so much less frustrating.

ouble, double, toil and big trouble. William Shakespeare penned his tragedy “Macbeth” sometime between 1603 and 1607, and this work of classic English literature is showing its age.

Although the play is compulsory for most high school students, only those with a love of language can remem-

ber much more than a few iconic lines once they put down the script. Macbeth has been adapted into film, novels, opera, television, and comic books to help preservetheclassictaleofregicide,butthere’s stillsomethingkeepingkidsfromunderstanding Shakespeare’s vision. To hear Daniel Gallagher explain it, that something is its lack of robots. Gallagher, a Forty Fort native and CGI animator, is working on an out-of-this-world animation project that he believes can reconcile “Macbeth” with today’s audience. To help update Shakespeare’s play for the technology age, Gallagher is employing the aid of Kickstarter, an online fundraising platform as innovative and experimental as his vision. Gallagher’s appreciation of “Macbeth” can be traced to his sophomore year at Bishop O’ReillyHighSchool,whenhereadtheplayas part of Anne Butler’s English class. For those who may forget, the tragedy tells the story of the title character, a brave Scottish warrior

“There’s not a wasted page. When there’s not action going on, there’s certainly intrigue. After studying Shakespeare in college literature classes and working with the plays on stage, I came to realize there’s a lot more in the play than I initially got out of it in high school. But even then I was asking questions: did the witches really see the future for Macbeth, or did they influence his actions?” Now Gallagher is coupling his talent for analyzing literature with what he calls his fulltime hobby, CGI animation, to create a film that will encourage high school students to keep asking questions about Shakespeare’s work. “There’s nothing remotely boring about this story! It’s a power struggle, a political thriller, a morality tale, and a bloodbath. It’s got dark magic, and evil deeds. It’s got revenge, and battle, and twisting prophecies,”

whoconspireswithhiswife,LadyMacbeth,to murder the rightful king of Scotland and assume the throne. Prophesying witches and political rivals torment Macbeth before he dies fighting the rightful heir to the throne. The play’s 5 acts are replete with nuances that make it part action adventure, part psychological study, and part love story. Gallagher, who earned a Bachelor of Arts degreeinliberalartsatVillanovaUniversityafter graduating from O’Reilly in 2000, says, See MACBETH, Page 9B

MEET JOHN MADAY

J

ohn Maday is the membership services coordinator at the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce. He is a graduate of Hanover Area High School and King’s College, where he earned degrees in business administration and political science. Prior to college, he spent four years in the United States Air Force. In 2001, he was given the Rose Brader Community Service Award, which is issued by the United Way of Wyoming Valley. He lives in South Wilkes-Barre.

CLARK VAN ORDEN/ THE TIMES LEADER

You’ve worked with the Chamber for three years and, prior to that, had been a volunteer there for many years. You’ve also worked as a computer operator for the Civil Service Commission, for IMB, for the American Red Cross and with Little Flower Manor. What do you enjoy most about your current position? “The interaction. It’s the fact that you are a part of this building process. You’re helping people with their businesses. You can feel yourself as being integral in the possible success of something.” What do you enjoy doing outside of work? “I’m a runner. I’ve been running for 33 years. I’ll be doing my 17th marathon in October. I enjoy that. I run by myself. I don’t wear a headset. In 33 years of running, I’ve never been on a treadmill. I don’t care what the weather is. Twelve months out of the year, I’m going. I’m always training.” You spent four years as a medic in the Air Force in the ’60s — during wartime — yet you prefaced this conversation by saying you didn’t want to talk about that. Can you briefly explain why? “I came back. That’s it. You accepted your responsibility. You did what you had to do.

And that’s it.” You’re very involved with the WilkesBarre Riverfront Parks Committee and RiverFest, correct? “I’ve been with them at least 20 years. I started off picking up trash and then someone asked me if I’d help out coordinating some of the events. I was also on the board and was president for about five years.” Music? “Bob Dylan. I like jazz. I like classical music. You can look at the CDs that I have or the old vinyl that I have, and you can find Big Brother and The Holding Company and Cream, and you can find something from Wagner or Wagnerian opera, or Wes Montgomery, a jazz guitarist, or Felix Slatkin. Frank Sinatra, big band music, Herbie Hancock ... I like a wide variety.” Favorite food? “Italian. But typically what I eat on a regular basis, because of my training, is fuel. It’s very simple stuff: carbohydrates, protein and a lot of fruits and vegetables. And it’s simply prepared, because I’m not going to go through a whole lot of effort to make something that to me is simply fuel.” Always in the fridge? “Bags of spin-

Shakespeare’s text. Having performed Shakespeare’s work and as a fan, I say anything that tries to grab kids is great and worth the pledge. ‘Macbeth’ is action-packed, and the story works with what he has designed.” Jennifer Joseph, a visual artist from Santa Fe, N. M., and fellow pledger echoes Curcione’s sentiments. “Because of the prevalence of video games today,” she says, “kids have a relationship with visual language. Dan’s project, conceptually, is great. I’m hoping for full funding of his project. The great thing about Kickstarter is that it’s a give-as-youcan program; you can raise a lot of money in small increments, which is fantastic in today’s economic environment.” One of Gallgher’s most ardent

supportersmaybeAnneButler,the English teacher who introduced him to Macbeth more than a decade ago and who currently teaches and heads the English Department at Dallas High School. Gallagher, who Butler remembers as having an easy time navigating Shakespeare’s language and a talentforpickinguphisinnuendos, believes a new staging of The Bard’s original text is needed in today’s classrooms. “I’mapurist,”Butlersays.“Ideally, we want all readers to get to that purist stage. I have found in my career that the complex language is the biggest barrier to Shakespeare’s message. There’s definitely a value in different adaptations and stagings. They help a reader build toward the message Shakespeare intended. I’m

interestedtoseewhatDandoeswith this. ‘Macbeth’ is the story of one man’sdesiretobemorethanhe’ssupposedtobe.Iwonderhowthattranslates when Macbeth is a machine.” While Gallagher is not giving awaytoomanytradesecretsjustyet, he’s confident that the human elements of the tragedy will resonate in his animation. “I keep thinking as I workonthisprojectaboutthemasks actorsworeinancientGreektheater, or Noh theater. If the story is universal, and conveyed properly, it’s almostbetternottoseeanactor’sface. Becausewecanprojectourselvesontothemasks.”In a world as wired as the present day, robotic Macbeth holds great promise: viewers of Gallagher’s creation should have no trouble projecting themselves onto machines.

he says. Gallagher believes today’s students feel disengaged from the story because of its staging. “My project is a new staging, not an adaptation,” Gallagher says. “I’m putting robots in a Cyber Scotland, but it will adhere faithfully to the text.” The project will only be completed if Gallagher can raise the production costs. The sculptures, sets, actors, computer equipment, and motion capture and animation programs necessary to create a 2-hour robot rendering of the tragedy carry a price tag of $8,900. When it comes to raising the money, though, Gallagher has demonstratedaforesightworthyof Macbeth’s witches: he has screwed his courage to the sticking-place andsubmittedhisproposaltoKickstarter, the largest threshold pledge system for funding creative projects in the world.

Ragan wins Brickyard pole Driver continues hot streak after getting first Sprint Cup victory earlier this month at Daytona. By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — David Ragan, in the midst of a career breakthrough, added the pole for the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to his suddenly improved resume. Ragan earned his first career Sprint Cup Series victory earlier this month at Daytona, a track long considered to be the crown jewel of NASCAR. Indianapolis ranks among the most prestigious tracks in the world, and Ragan’s pole-

“It was a good lap, I didn’t make a mistake,” Ragan said. “It wasn’t as aggressive as I wanted to be. But I knew if I hit my marks, had a conservative lap, I’d at least have a top-five.” Kasey Kahne made his qualifying run after Ragan and jumped in front of Johnson with a lap at 182.927 mph in a Toyota from Red Bull Racing. “We just have to be there at the end,” Kahne said. “It seems that’s how this race is won, being up front at the end. You’re not just going to pass five, six cars. When you get to turn one, you’ve got to be one of those top couple of cars more times than not.”

PAUL SOKOLOSKI OPINION

winning run Saturday was no small feat. He made his run late in the session, with three-time Brickyard winner Jimmie Johnson holding down the top spot on the leaderboard. Ragan turned a lap of 182.994 mph in his Roush Fenway Racing Ford to bump Johnson from the pole. “It will be cool to lead the pack,” Ragan said. “It’s an honor to be here and to be the fastest guy at Indy. This is a great track. Any type of accomplishment you get here is cool.” It’s Ragan’s second career pole. His first came in April at Texas. See BRICKYARD, Page 8C

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Chad Ochocinco promised to tone down his antics now that he’s in New England, where coach Bill Belichick likes his players to be seen and rarely heard. That lasted all of five minutes. After calling himself a chameleon who can “blend in and do it the Patriot way,” Ochocinco riffed on riding the wave and soaring with his angel wings. Then, by way of introduction to the crush of media surrounding him for his first availability in New England, he asked for a group hug. “It is going to be a little quiet. You won’t get the same Chad you are used to, and I probably won’t be talking to the media much, probably not at all, really. I just want to play ball and ride the wave,” he said after practice on Saturday. “I will always be me. It has been a part of my game to always be me, but there is a certain way the Patriots do it. It’s easy for me. I’ve always been a See OCHOCINCO, Page 6C

Yanks fall 4 games off pace in North By JIM MANDELARO For The Times Leader

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – If the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees hope to win the International League North for a sixth consecutive year, they can’t turn in many more appearances like Saturday night. The Yankees struck first against last-place Rochester but gave up six unanswered runs and lost 6-2 before a sellout crowd of 11,436 at Frontier RED WINGS Field. The Yankees are in third place in the IL North, four games behind LehighValley and YANKEES two behind second-place Pawtucket. The Yankees scored an unearned run in the first inning off Kevin Slowey, but could do nothing over the next seven innings against the control specialist, who is on the trade block as the majorleague deadline hits today. “He was really on tonight,’’ second baseman

ortheastern Pennsylvania has turned out its fair share of athletes that have garnered national attention. In football alone, names like Rocket and Qadry Ismail are recognized by sports fans around the country. But the area hasn’t exactly been a hotbed of cycling in the past. That could change as a pair of young area cyclists have a chance to earn some international recognition. Booey Hottenstein, of Kingston, and Luke Lukas, of Courtdale, will be heading to West Flanders, Belgium, to race and train for a month. “We’ve got some pretty pure talent here,” said Paul Lukas, president of the Upstate Velo Club and Luke Lukas’ father.

The pair will be making the trip as part of a group of riders with the FCS Cycling Team out of Texas. The team is owned by Tim Redus’s Vertex Cycling, a group founded to address the needs of elite level, developing bicycle racers and to enhance the sport of competitive cycling in the U.S. They are receiving support from the Upstate Velo Club – along with its sponsors Hi-Tech Flooring, Pride Mobility Products, L.T. Verrastro Inc. and TeeDude.com – and Sickler’s Bike shop and Mark and Sue Farrell (former owners of Sickler’s). “Upstate Velo, Sickler’s Bike Shop, and Mark and Sue Farrell have been absolutely instrumental to the development of cycling in the area,” Hottenstein said. “Luke and I couldn’t thank them enough for their support.” The Velo Club also helped send David Novak, of See CYCLING, Page 4C

uddenly, everyone’s flocking to the Philadelphia Eagles. And this flurry of activity has put Philadelphia at the front of the pack. The Eagles are the team to beat now, after bringing some of the biggest names in the business to town. They’ve added game-changers Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin and Vince Young to a team that already boasts Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy. “It’s like a dream team,” said Young, the team’s new backup quarterback. If this is a dream, Eagles fans don’t want to be awakened. They’re wide-eyed over a 48-hour spending spree that should make the Eagles Super Bowl favorites in the NFC. Who’s better? The Eagles now have the best cornerback tandem in the league. They could have the best two front-line quarterbacks of any team. And now they’ll get more push from their pass rush. All because they’re in a rush to win it all. “The Eagles are all-in,” Eagles president Joe Banner said. Don’t bet against them this time. The Eagles figured Kevin Kolb’s time was up, so they traded their once-promising quarterback of the future to Arizona. In exchange, they got a lockdown cornerback who has picked off 13 passes during his three NFL seasons and returned four of them for touchdowns. That Thursday deal was only the start of a team transformation for the Eagles. “It’s dramatic,” Banner said. For Philadelphia’s opponents, the change could be traumatic. The Eagles signed Asomugha, who was so dynamic in Oakland that quarterbacks only had a 50-50 shot of completing a pass when they threw his way. And last year, they threw the ball his way just 19 times the entire season. Meanwhile, Jason Babin was having a breakout season as a pass-rushing defensive end for Tennessee. If he can come anywhere close to accumulating 12½ sacks this year after signing with the Eagles, Philadelphia can count on a furious pass rush with Babin on one side and Trent Cole on the other. On the other side of the ball, they signed Young to take Kolb’s place and back up Vick. That’s four big names added to the Eagles’ game plan. “It sent shock waves through the NFL,” said Babin, who was a training camp cut by the Eagles a couple years ago. “It’s impressive.” It’s a statement, heard loud and far. The Eagles are putting their chips on the table, gambling a Super Bowl run is in their immediate future. “They wanted to come to a team that gave them a chance to get to a Super Bowl,” Reid said of his new recruits. “I appreciate that. That’s what we strive for every year.” Striving doesn’t always mean thriving. The Eagles are still smarting from four NFC Championship game defeats during Reid’s 12-year tenure. “There’s a big focus on relieving the pain of being so close so many times and not getting there,” Banner said. The Eagles got better in one fell swoop during the early days of training camp. They practiced at Lehigh University in front of fans for the first time Saturday, and spent the morning listening to chants of “Super Bowl.” Those cries always come from the stands at camp. This time, they sounded more real. Paul Sokoloski is a Times Leader sports columnist. You may reach him at 970-7109 or email him at psokoloski@timesleader.com.

PHILLIES PROSPECTS

Pitcher Colvin assumes top spot

Bench player at start of year now SWB’s starting shortstop

Editor’s Note: Here’s a look at the Phillies’ top prospects, according to MLB.com, how they are faring and where they are currently playing:

LOCALS IN THE PROS

Canzler continues fine year for Bulls By The Times Leader staff

Russ Canzler: The Hazleton Area grad, who is an outfielder for Durham, the Triple-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, has been playing exceptionally well. His fine season has continued with a .296 batting average in 97 games. He has 13 home runs, 29 doubles and 62 RBI. He was also named MVP of the Triple A All-Star Game earlier this season. Cory Spangenberg: An Abington Heights grad and the 10th overall draft pick by the Padres last month got off to a stellar start for the Short-Season Eugene (Ore.) Emeralds and was promoted to Class-A Fort Wayne (Ind.) in the Midwest League. After hitting .384 for the Emeralds, he has struggled early on for the Tin Caps. He’s batting .167 (9-for-54) with 5 RBI and two stolen bases in eight games. Overall in the minors, he’s batting .300 (42-for-140) with a home run, 25 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 39 games.

Montero produces 9 RBI this week Editor’s Note: The Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees have taken a page from their parent club by winning championships. SWB has racked up four consecutive International League North Division titles and more could be on the way because the minor league system is stacked with top prospects that are close to contributing at the Triple-A or Major League level. Here’s a look at the organization’s top 10 prospects according to MLB.com, where they are now and how they are faring:

The Times Leader staff

1. Brody Colvin, starting pitcher, Single-A Clearwater: He has a 2-5 record in 15 starts with a 3.96 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 84 innings. 2. Sebastian Valle, catcher, Single-A Clearwater: The 20-year-old is batting .325 with four home runs, 34 RBI and an on-base percentage of .348 in 265 at-bats for the Threshers. 3. Jesse Biddle, starting pitcher, Low-A Lakewood: The left-handed first-round has a 5-6 record with a 3.18 ERA and 106 strikeouts in 1072⁄3 innings. Hitters are batting just .221 against him. 4. Trevor May, starting pitcher, Single-A Clearwater: A strikeout machine, he’s fanned 151 in 112 innings, going 7-6 with a 3.54 ERA. He’s had three double-digit strikeout games for the Threshers, with his seasonhigh being 14. 5. Aaron Altherr, outfielder, Short Season Single-A Williamsport: For the Crosscutters, he’s batting .270 in 37 games after being demoted from Lakewood. Overall in the minors this year, he’s just hitting .239 with three homers. 6. Cesar Hernandez, second base, Single-A Clearwater: The switch-hitting 21-year-old has played in 87 games for the Threshers this year, posting a .263 average with three home runs, 30 RBI and 16 stolen bases. 7. Justin De Fratus, reliever, Triple-A Lehigh Valley: A righty, he’s made 16 appearances for the IronPigs this season, going 2-1 with a 4.70 ERA after being promoted from Reading. His minor league totals this season are 6-1 with a 3.14 ERA, 70 strikeouts and 10 saves in 57 1 ⁄3 innings. 8. Jiwan James, outfielder, Single-A Clearwater: The 22-year-old is batting .280 with three homers, 22 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 393 at-bats. * Outfielder/infielder Jonathan Singleton and starting pitcher Jarred Cosart, previously the Philadelphia Phillies’ two top prospects, were traded to the Houston Astros organization Friday night as part of the deal in which the Phillies acquired major league outfielder Hunter Pence. Both Singleton and Cosart had been playing for Single-A Clearwater.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees infielder Doug Bernier dives after a ball during a game against the Columbus Clippers at PNC Field. Bernier has worked hard and become the Yankees’ starting shortstop.

Hard work pays off for Bernier By JOSH HORTON For The Times Leader

MOOSIC – When the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees broke spring training and headed north to Moosic, they didn’t plan on Doug Bernier being their starting shortstop. He wasn’t in the starting lineup when the team opened its season in Lehigh Valley. However, now he is in the starting lineup and is playing a big role as the team’s everyday shortstop. “It’s a nice surprise. I have been in the game a long time and I know even if you’re not starting at the beginning of the year, opportunities always come up at some point,” Bernier said. “It’s been nice to have the opportunity to play every day, it’s been a lot of fun.” Some players have gotten down on themselves if they didn’t play as often as they would have liked. However, Bernier continued to work hard as if he were playing every day rather than let it effect his play on the field. The preparation paid off and due to injuries and call-ups the Yankee infielder has been a regular at shortstop. “It’s tough, because everyone wants to play,” Bernier said. “But going into the year I understood the situation and knew the level of talent of the guys we had on the team.” “So, you just try and prepare every day as if you would be playing and when you do get the opportunity, you don’t want to be surprised by it.” The 2011 season marks Bernier’s second stint with the Yankees organization. Bernier feels this season has gone much better than 2009 did. In 79 games with Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre in 2009, he batted .181 with no home runs and

just 20 RBI. He has really turned it around in his second stint with the Yankee organization. As of July 28, he is hitting .279 and had 23 RBI, which is already three more than his RBI total of 2009. He considers the 2009 season his worst in professional baseball. “It was draining, because

that was my worst year,” Bernier said. “It was frustrating to have that kind of year knowing you are a free agent the next year and hoping you can find a job somewhere.” However, years later he has a job with the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees and he is happy to be back in the organization.

“I had a good time when I was over here and the fact that they showed interest and wanted me back after I didn’t have a very good year for them in 2009 gave me some confidence and excitement,” Bernier said. “I love playing for this organization, because they preach winning and team togetherness.” Bernier has taken full advantage of his second opportunity with the Yankee organization. He combined hard work in the offseason and hard work during the season to get his game to where it is today. “I started to feel myself getting better about a month and a half into the season,” Bernier said. “I was starting to trust myself more. I think the whole trust factor and taking what I have been working on into the game and seeing that it can work.” Many players have said the game of baseball is just as much a mental game as it is a physical game. Bernier is no exception. After working with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre hitting coach Butch Wynegar, he has taken a different mental approach at the plate. He (Wynegar) talked a lot about the mental side of hitting,” Bernier said. “He would ask me, what am I really trying to do with this at bat. One of his favorite lines he always tells me is, a bad approach is always better than no approach.” Although Bernier is appearing regularly in the Yankee lineup, he still feels there are things he needs to work on. “I really want to become a more consistent hitter,” Bernier said. “Baseball for me has always been like a chess match and if you stop working and trying to get better, then I think you need to find something else to do.”

“I really want to become a more consistent hitter. Baseball for me has always been like a chess match and if you stop working and trying to get better, then I think you need to find something else to do.”

1. Jesus Montero, catcher, Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre: Montero is hitting .283 with 10 home runs and 47 RBI for the Yankees. 2. Gary Sanchez, catcher, Single-A Charleston: For the RiverDogs, he has 10 home runs to go along with a .243 batting average and 39 RBI in 71 games and 263 at-bats. 3. Manny Banuelos, starting pitcher, Double-A Trenton: The left-hander holds a record of 4-5 with a 3.59 ERA, while fanning 94 in 95 1 ⁄3 innings. 4. Dellin Betances, starting pitcher, Double-A Trenton: A right-hander for the Thunder, he’s 4-5 with 98 strikeouts and a 3.43 ERA in 89 1⁄3 innings. 5. Austin Romine, catcher, Double-A Trenton: The 21year-old backstop is htting .284. He has five home runs and 42 RBI. 6. Slade Heathcott, outfielder, Single-A Tampa: He was promoted to Tampa and hit the DL after playing just one game, but still moved up from No. 8 in last week’s rankings. His minors totals consist of a .279 average with five home runs. 7. Adam Warren, pitcher, Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre: He’s been the most consistent, healthy pitcher for the Yankees this season, making 20 starts and going 6-3 with a 3.15 ERA and one complete game. Batters are hitting just .247 against the righty. 8. David Phelps, pitcher, Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre: For SWB, he has made 14 starts, going 4-6 with a 3.38 ERA and fanning 74 in 85 1⁄3 innings. 9. Andrew Brackman, reliever, Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre: His ERA is still high, but falling. It’s currently at 7.22 to go with a 2-6 record. He has allowed 60 walks and 72 hits in 721⁄3 innings. He has also given up 10 home runs. 10. Cito Culver, shortstop, Short Season Staten Island: The switch-hitting first round draft pick from 2010 (32nd overall) won’t turn 19 until the end of this month and is hitting .296 with 27 RBI and two stolen bases for the Yankees.

On This Date July 31, 2005 At Yankee Stadium, the Molina brothers, Bengie and Jose, both homer off Randy Johnson.

Manofmanymissions, Broad Bahn win elims EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Manofmanymissions and Broad Bahn won their eliminations and set the field of 10 for next weekend’s $1.5 million Hambletonian at the Meadowlands Racetrack. Manofmanymissions covered the mile for 3-year-olds in 1:52 4-5 on Saturday night in posting the fastest winning time and advancing to the final of trotting’s most prestigious race. Andy Miller was in the bike as the son of Yankee Glide wore down longshot Magnum Kosmos en route to a length victory. Pastor Stephen, Opening Night and Whiskey Tax also advanced out of the heat.

TENNIS ROUNDUP

SWB Kevin Russo said. “We couldn’t do much of anything against him.” Slowey scattered five hits, walked none and struck out eight (five looking) in a 104-pitch effort. Mike Lamb hit a solo homer off Kyle Waldrop in the top of the ninth. The fans turned out to watch the Red Wings, the Famous Chicken, postgame fireworks – and to some degree, the Yankees. Western New York is Yankee territory, and interest in New York’s top farm club is high. The Yankees entered the night 35-24 on the road, including an impressive 19-9 against IL North foes. Rochester, which has the second-worst record in the IL, is just 25-32 at home. “We can’t worry about that (losing to a last-place club),” Russo said. “A loss is a loss.” The Yankees struck right off the bat – and in this case, the glove. Russo flied to center on the second pitch of the game, and the ball glanced off the heel of Rene Tosoni. Russo reached second, moved to third on Greg Golson’s sacrifice bunt and scored on Jesus Montero’s bloop single to right. Yankees starter Adam Warren gave it back – with interest. Jeff Bailey and Aaron Bates singled in runs in the bottom of the first and Rene Rivera’s solo homer off the railing in left field made it 3-1. Mike Hollimon’s 30-foot nubber down the third-base line scored Toby Gardenhire from third with Rochester’s fourth run in the fourth inning. Hollimon hit a pitch from Warren off the end of his bat, and both Warren and third baseman Brandon Laird let the ball roll, hoping it would go foul. It didn’t, and the Wings capitalized. They scored another run in the fifth on a wild pitch from Warren. Warren (6-4) allowed five runs on eight hits in his five-inning stint. He suffered his first loss since June 30. The Wings padded their lead with a run in the seventh, scoring on a sacrifice fly by Rivera. Mike Lamb homered off Kyle Waldrop in the top of the ninth. Russo said the Yankees are interested in the off-field doings as today’s trade deadline hits, but they can’t do much about it. “All we can do is take it one day at a time,” he said. The two-game series concludes tonight with a 6:35 start at Frontier. D.J. Mitchell (8-7, 3.11 ERA) will pitch for the Yankees against Rochester rookie Liam Hendriks (1-0, 3.55) in a matchup of right-handers.

Tunkhannock, to Canada recently to compete in the Tour de l’Abitibi, an extremely prestigious junior race. Hottenstein, 18, and Lukas, 16, leave for Belgium tonight. “I really don’t know what to expect,” said Lukas, 16. “It’s a chance to get a lot better real quick.” According to his father and Hottenstein, Lukas can expect a country that loves its cycling. “The sport is so popular that there are races every day,” said Paul Lukas, adding that the races are all within 30 or 40 miles of where the two cyclists will be staying. “It would be like if they had a race in Pittston here one day, then Nanticoke the next day then Scranton the next.” Hottenstein and Lukas will race three days a week and use the other three races as training or recovery days. All the while living with other young cyclists in what can best be described as a ‘bike hostel.’ “The international experience that these riders will gain is immeasurable, from thinking tactically, adopting new training and recovery techniques, and racing under all conditions and road surfaces,” Paul Lukas said. “They will then bring this knowledge back to young riders in our area to help them perform better.” Lukas, the son of Paul and

LOS ANGELES — Mardy Fish fought from behind in the third set to advance to his second straight final, beating teenager Ryan Harrison 6-0, 4-6, 7-6 (3) at the Farmers Classic on Saturday. Fish and Harrison were playing a rematch of their semifinal last week in Atlanta, where Fish won his first title of the season. The top-seeded Fish defeated Harrison in straight sets in Atlanta and picked up where he left off Saturday, breezing through the opening set in 20 minutes. A frustrated Harrison won only six points. “That’s probably the cleanest set of tennis I’ve played in a long time,” Fish said. Harrison responded in the second set and pushed Fish to the brink in the third. Fish regrouped and went up 5-0 in the tiebreaker and won the match with an ace. “It’s never going to be like that for two sets,” Fish said. “I was playing at an extremely high level. You expect him to bounce back and play better. And he did.” Fish has won six career titles, but has never reached the final at this tournament. He will play the winner of the second semifinal between Alex Bogomolov Jr. of the U.S. and Ernests Gulbis of Latvia. The 19-year-old Harrison was trying for his first career final. He is the first American teen to make consecutive semifinals appearances since

Cilic to play Dolgopolov in Croatia Open final UMAG, Croatia — Marin Cilic defeated Fabio Fognini of Italy 6-2, 6-2 Saturday to advance to the Croatia Open final against Aleksandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine. The fourth-seeded Cilic dropped serve only once in the match, at the start of the second set, before becoming the first Croat to reach the Umag final since Goran Prpic defeated compatriot Goran Ivanisevic in 1990. In the other semifinal Saturday, the second-seeded Dolgopolov beat Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain 6-4, 6-4. “It was not as easy as it looks,” Cilic said. “I had to play really hard to win. My serve went up and down, especially in the second set. But I am really happy how I played.”

ST.

It was the 432nd homer of Pujols’ career and came one day after he reached 2,000 hits. The home run places him alone in 40th place on the career list. He just missed getting a second one when the ball sailed just outside the left-field foul pole in the seventh inning.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

NEW YORK — Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and the New York Yankees broke loose for 12 runs in the first inning Saturday night, setting a franchise record en route to a 17-3 rout of the Baltimore Orioles that completed a painfully embarrassing sweep of their split doubleheader. Cano went 5 for 5 with five RBIs, a career high for hits, and Swisher smacked his second two-run homer of the day in the nightcap. Curtis Granderson added four hits for the Yankees, who roughed up both young pitching prospects called up from the minors to start for Baltimore. New York opened a 15-0 lead after two innings, making it an easy night for Ivan Nova (9-4) in his return from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Source says players have recertified NFLPA Re-establishing union was key step into completing CBA between owners and players.

By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Pro Football Writer

WASHINGTON — It’s on to the next step for the NFL and its players, who are getting closer to a full-fledged collective bargaining agreement. “The NFL and NFLPA staffs have been working for the past few days on the final details of the new CBA,” league spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an email to The Associated Press on Saturday.

A person familiar with the negotiations confirmed to the AP that the NFL Players Association already re-established itself as a union. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made by the NFLPA. Re-establishing the union was a key step needed to finish a CBA after the main parts of the deal to end the NFL’s 41⁄2-month lockout were agreed to by owners on July 21 and by players on Monday. Only a union can negotiate items such as drug testing, player conduct policy and disability and pension programs. For the lockout to remain lifted and the season to proceed,

those issues must be resolved and a full CBA completed by Thursday, a deadline both sides are confident will be met. In March, when federally mediated talks in Washington between owners and players broke down and the old CBA expired, the NFLPA said it was dissolving itself as a union and instead becoming a trade association. That move allowed the players to sue the league under antitrust law, and 10 did, including Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. That case was settled as part of the deal the sides have agreed to. But by decertifying, the NFLPA gave up its right to bar-

gain on behalf of all players under labor law. That’s why the union needed to form again in order to complete a CBA. Once the CBA is fully squared away, veteran free agents who have signed new contracts in the past few days will be allowed to practice with their teams. Those players are currently allowed to attend team meetings, work out individually and watch — but not participate — in practice. “It’s frustrating,” Buffalo Bills receiver/quarterback Brad Smith said after watching the team’s first walk-through of training camp in suburban Rochester on Saturday. “It’s good. I can sit here and watch the guys go

chameleon, so I am going to blend in and do it the Patriot way, which is win. We had our talk, and without him (Belichick) even having to saying anything — there is no need for some of the stuff I did before. There’s no need for it.” The Patriots were among the biggest newsmakers in the league coming out of the lockout, agreeing to trades for Ochocinco and Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth shortly after the NFL reopened for business. What’s most unusual: Neither player is what’s thought of as the usual type for Belichick, who prefers the quiet and businesslike to the guys who make headlines off the field. “I think every player on this team, every person on this team, has their own individual personality,” Belichick said. “None of us are the same, so that’s probably a good thing.” Ochocinco, who was originally Chad Johnson, has caught 751 passes for 10,783 yards and 66 touchdowns in his 10-year career. But he is perhaps better known for his touchdown celebrations, for changing his legal name to the Spanish words for 8 and 5 to match his uniform number, and for his prolific tweeting — almost 30,000 messages to more than 2.4 million Twitter followers. Belichick is not among them. “That’s not something I follow,

had an idea of what the deal encompassed and all we gained, the guys really wanted to get back to work.” Said Broncos safety Brian Dawkins, a member of the NFLPA’s executive committee: “It was an easy sell.” While noting that the final CBA is not yet done, Dawkins was confident the final issues will be settled. “De and those guys will continue to hash those things out,” he said, referring to NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith. “We have nothing but 100 percent trust in De. He knows what we want. He knows what, obviously, we need.”

Giants’ Umenyiora ends holdout after just 1 day

Quarterback has no hard feelings about getting $56M less than last year’s top pick.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Cam Newton quietly walked around as cameras swarmed Carolina’s new kicker Olindo Mare. Newton peeked out from behind a lens and asked his Panthers’ teammate, “How hot was it today?” Newton sure didn’t act like a No. 1 pick shortchanged by the rookie wage scale. The Heisman Trophy winner spoke Saturday for the first time since signing a four-year, $22 million contract with the Panthers. His deal was set by the newly bargained rookie scale that was part of the agreement between NFL owners and players. Newton took a major financial hit as the draft’s top selection, getting $56 million or so less than Sam Bradford’s $78 million, sixyear deal he got as St. Louis’ No. 1 pick. “It really doesn’t matter,” Newton said. “Either way you look at it, I’ve still got more money than I’ve ever had.” And Newton knows that he reaches his potential on the football field, he’ll make up any financial disparity later. “In this league, they set standards,” Newton said. “If you play

through the plays and learn the system. It hurts a little bit. But it’s a positive opportunity.” The former New York Jets multipurpose offensive star signed a four-year contract with the Bills on Friday. In addition to the Bills, at least the following teams had voted in favor of re-certification as of Saturday afternoon: Patriots, Chiefs, Broncos, Bengals, Cowboys, Jaguars, Browns, Saints and Steelers, 49ers, Falcons, Giants, Titans, Buccaneers and Bears. Giants player rep Kareem McKenzie said of his team’s unanimous vote: “The guys really wanted to go ahead. Once they

the way they’re predicting you to play, you’re going to be all right either way it goes.” Newton was eager to take the field for his first practice at Wofford College later Saturday and said holding out was never an option, even before the NFL lockout. He spent the time away training, working out with star Panthers receiver Steve Smith in some private sessions that proved to Newton the Panthers have plenty of offense despite last year’s dismal 2-14 showing. Newton hopes he can be part of that. He received the offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski’s playbook in April in the short time a judge lifted the NFL lockout. Newton’s worked to learn what he can, but knows he can’t really progress until he gets back on the field. He’ll wear No. 1 at Panthers’ camp with quarterback rival Jimmy Clausen wearing No. 2, the jersey number Newton wore at Auburn during the 14-0 national championship season. as you know,” he said, smiling. So far, the biggest complication in Ochocinco’s arrival in New England had been tight end Aaron Hernandez owning No. 85. Ochocinco said he didn’t have to pay him anything for the No. 85. (Hernandez switched to No. 81.) “This was Mr. Hernandez’s way of greeting me here. He gave me the number and I didn’t have to pay anything, I just shook his hand and I said, ‘Thank you,’” Ochocinco said. “I drive a Toyota Prius, so I was going to let him use my Prius on the weekends, and that’s about the best I can do right now. I have some leftover McDonald’s coupons since I don’t eat there anymore.” A two-time Pro Bowl selection in Tennessee, Haynesworth’s talent was completely overshadowed in Washington by his legal problems and his feud with coach Mike Shanahan that ended with Thursday’s trade to the Patriots for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick. “All the trades we’ve been involved in through the years — the Ted Washingtons and the Corey Dillons and the Randy Mosses and all — each one is different. Belichick said … “In the end, you just try to do what’s best for your football team.” Haynesworth, who repeatedly failed his conditioning test in Washington, did not practice on Saturday morning. “There are things we still need to do with Albert for him to be able to get on the practice field and when those things are done, he’ll be out there,” the coach said.

Newton said he and Clausen talked about acquiring No. 2, but in the end thought it was best to start out fresh. “Rightfully so, since it was his number,” Newton said. He and Clausen have a healthy, friendly relationship so far and both understand that the quarterback competition will make each one better for the Panthers. “I don’t want to give off a situation where we hate each other’s guts and we’re just out there running over each other,” Newton said. “Jimmy is helping me and I hope I’m helping Jimmy. We want to bring out the best in each other.” There’ll be plenty of people hoping Newton can bring the best out in Carolina’s offense, which set a franchise low in points scored last year. The 6foot-5 Newton knows he’ll have some help with that starting with Smith. The Panthers’ sometimes

prickly receiver had nothing but glowing reviews for Newton in their workouts, which apparently went a long way toward Smith wanting to remain with the team. Both of Carolina’s headliners in the backfield, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, return and the Panthers picked up Chicago tight end Greg Olsen in a trade to bolster the receiving corps. “I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t know that I’ve ever seen anyone like him,” Olsen said of his new quarterback. “Watching him on TV is a whole lot different than seeing him in person. He just has that something about him, that confidence.” Newton’s hopes he can carry that through camp and into the regular season. He said he’s prepared to work as hard as possible to show he’s ready for the NFL. “It’s exciting just to be around the football atmosphere again,” he said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora has ended his holdout after a day and reported to the New York Giants. Umenyiora reported to training camp Saturday afternoon after missing the opening day of training camp at the team’s headquarters. The 29-year-old failed to report Friday. He said during the summer that he was unhappy with the team because general manager Jerry Reese failed to live up to a promise to renegotiate his contact after last season. “I’ll be there today,” Umenyiora said in a email to The Associated Press around 3:20 p.m. Saturday. Neither Umenyiora nor Reese was available for comment after the player reported around 4 p.m. Coach Tom Coughlin said he spoke briefly with Umenyiora and that the defensive end didn’t have his physical because of his late arrival in the afternoon. Umenyiora started all 16 games last season and led the league with 10 forced fumbles. His 111⁄2 sacks tied Justin Tuck for the team lead. Tuck hinted earlier in the day that Umenyiora might return soon. “I think he realizes this is a business and he’s doing what’s best for him. You can’t blame him for that,”

“I think he realizes this is a business and he’s doing what’s best for him. You can’t blame him for that.”

Justin Tuck On Giants teammate Osi Umenyiora

Tuck said. “A lot of people have different opinions on how to handle the situation. You might not see eye-to-eye with how he handled it. He has to do what’s best for him. That’s all I tell him to do. My biggest concern is that he doesn’t do something that’s going to hurt Osi.” Umenyiora ripped Reese in an affidavit filed by players as part of an antitrust suit against the league during the recent lockout. Tuck felt the comments would not be a problem. “A couple years ago Michael Strahan was in a similar situation,” Tuck said. “He might’ve had a little bit more (leverage) being a future Hall of Famer. You’ve got to understand, we just got out of a tremendous business deal with just being able to come out here and play this game again. It is a business. “I think a lot of people get caught up in the loyalty to the game and things of that nature like the Giants in this situation. We’re definitely loyal to the team. But, in Osi’s situation, he feels as though he needs to do this.”

WORLD CUP SOCCER

Stewart optimistic about Brickyard

the lead. He admitted afterward, “I was just trying too hard.” The next year he led four times for 43 laps but faded at the end, and 2003 saw a slow final pit stop and a late caution ruin another chance. The 2005 victory came when Stewart had finally found some peace both with himself — he had moved home to Indiana earlier that year in a search for some serenity — and the track. That breakthrough win ended the love-hate relationship Stewart always had with Indy. “I think I got by the hate part once we won the second one,” he said. “You love the place because of the history of it, because it’s home. The hate part was we worked so hard, led so many laps, couldn’t win. Once we won the race, think it took that side of the equation away, made it that much better. We got to enjoy it that much more afterward.” GORDON’S GUILT: With a record $119 million in winnings in his NASCAR career, Jeff Gordon is quite accustomed to the finer things in life. A fact-finding mission to Congo last week has left the four-time NASCAR champion feeling a bit guilty about the luxuries he enjoys. “It was an experience that will change me forever,” Gordon said of last week’s trip with

the Clinton Global Initiative. “I feel guilty about buying a bottle of water for two bucks. You look at your refrigerator and you go like, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s so much waste here.’ You just start looking at every aspect of your life and the things you take for granted.” Gordon made the 28-hour flight to Africa following the July 17 race at New Hampshire. He spent almost three days in Congo, where he saw children walking barefoot along busy roads and women carrying sacks of coal on their backs. The father of two young children said he didn’t expect to see such struggles. DALE AND DANICA: Dale Earnhardt Jr. would love the opportunity to give Danica Patrick a full-time job in NASCAR. Patrick could leave IndyCar at the end of this season to focus only on NASCAR. She’s so far driven 19 Nationwide Series races for Earnhardt’s JR Motorsports team. “I would like for her to run full-time and I’m sure she is considering that, and I think she would enjoy it,” Earnhardt said. But he said he’s unsure of what Patrick will do, even though he believes she’s happy at JRM. Patrick has developed a decent rapport with crew

chief Tony Eury Jr., and flirted with victory earlier this month at Daytona, where she led 13 laps before the last-lap chaos dropped her to a 10th-place finish. “I feel confident that she’s content where she is and happy with what we’re doing. I think things are looking positive for us to put something together,” he said. “I think she’s doing great. She’s way ahead of the curve. We’ve had the opportunity to put several drivers in that car and her performance is right on par with all those drivers. “We started out struggling and she had a steep, steep climb to go and she’s really come a long way. I’m excited about what the potential is with her going forward.” Patrick has six more scheduled NASCAR starts this season. DRIVER SAFETY: Kyle Busch plans to work with the B.R.A.K.E.S young driver safety program in the wake of his recent speeding ticket. Busch was ticketed for driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone in a loaned Lexus in May. Now he’ll partner with the program — Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe -- that was founded in 2008 after drag racer Doug Herbert lost two sons in a car accident. Busch will do public service announcements and have monetary donations through the Kyle Busch Foundation. “Those guys have a great program and do a lot of great work for kids that may not know exactly what driving a car entails,” Busch said. “It’s certainly a lot more than just being able to make it from point A to point B sometimes. I’ll be working toward about 300 of those new kids getting through the program and taking some initiative there to help them through it and give them some advice and give them my story.” Busch is due in court Aug. 23 on charges of speeding and reckless driving.

“This track is clearly unique and we don’t race on anything else like it,” Johnson said. “When you get it right, you have an advantage.” Penske Racing teammates Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski qualified fourth and fifth in their Dodges for today’s race, and the drivers have already heard from team owner Roger Penske on what they’ll need to do to win. “He made a phone call last night and reminded us that we needed to try two tires in prac-

tice,” Keselowski said.“He’s got this whole game plan and how the strategy is going to play out. He definitely studies this race. He loves coming here.” AJ Allmendinger, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and series points leader Carl Edwards rounded out the top 10. David Stremme, Travis Kvapil, Erik Darnell, JJ Yeley and Scott Wimmer were the five drivers who failed to qualify for the race. Denny Hamlin qualified 14th,

but he’ll have to drop to the back of the field at the start of the race as a penalty for changing his engine. The move was necessary because the engine in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota blew up late in Friday’s final practice. It’s at least the 11th engine failure by a JGR car this season, and comes as speculation mounts that the team will close its engine shop and lease engines next season from manufacturer Toyota.

INDIANAPOLIS — Tony Stewart seemed to be on a date with destiny in both of his wins at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where there was an overwhelming sense in 2005 and 2007 that nothing could get in his way in the race to Victory Lane. Even though he seemed to be a lock both of those years, Stewart never allowed himself to think the race was his for the taking. He’d suffered too many heartaches at the Brickyard to assume anything was a given. “I know how much this track can change. You can have a great race car in practice and then when you start the race, the conditions seem to change a little bit,” Stewart said. “It’s just a battle of trying to keep the car balanced all day. Even during the race, you can have a fast car at the beginning and lose the handle at the end. You have to make sure you have a car that’s adjustable all day.” Stewart doesn’t appear to be a lock to win today, but he should at least be a contender. His Stewart-Haas Racing team turned a corner two weeks ago at New Hampshire, where Ryan Newman led his boss to a 1-2 finish in both qualifying and the race. The roll continued into this week, when Stewart won his first ever World of Outlaws race. So his mood was sky high when he arrived at the Brickyard. That’s a bit of a change for Stewart, who has admittedly gotten himself too stressed out about racing at the track he so adores. He had a shot to win the 1996 Indianapolis 500 as a rookie until a broken part ended his race on lap 82. He was leading in 1998 when his engine failed right after he’d moved to the front. Then came NASCAR, where Stewart was a threat to win in 2001 until he bounced off the wall racing with Dale Jarrett for

Johnson, the five-time defending series champion, fell to third. His lap of 182.801 mph in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet had led the qualifying session until the late runs by Ragan and Kahne. He wasn’t upset though, and knows his past success at Indy will come into play today.

Gary Woodland (67) and second round co-leader Webb Simpson (69) were two strokes back. Kim’s last victory came a year ago at the Shell Houston Open before he underwent thumb surgery and took three months off. He’s had an up-and-down year, with eight missed cuts and two top 10s in 21 events. Kim tied for fifth at the BritKim leads by 1 at Greenbrier ish Open earlier this month after WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, making it as an alternate.

Barely staying in range of Browne and O’Meara are Hale Irwin, who shot his age (66), along with New Mexico club pro Jeff Roth (68) and Michael Allen (71), all at 7-under 206. Tied for 10th and nine shots back came a who’s who of senior golf, including defending champion Bernhard Langer (68), Hal Sutton (66), Nick Price (68), Jay Haas (68), Steve Jones (69) and Corey Pavin (70).

here ready to play some golf and have a good time.” That’s a stark contrast to the first six months of the year, in which Kim said he didn’t want to be on the golf course because he wasn’t sure where his shots would end up. “People may think I’m exaggerating, but that’s how tough this game got for me,” Kim said. “Going back to the basics is really what helped my game. Because without that, I would still be struggling.” Kim made eight birdies, tying his total from the first two rounds combined. All of his birdies Saturday came from inside 10 feet. His 113-yard wedge to within a foot of the pin at the par-4 14th gave him the outright lead. “I was just hitting smart golf shots,” he said. “I was starting to think my way around the course instead of just get up to a tee and the fairways are 40 yards wide and the rough is not that

penal and just try to hit it as hard as I can. That’s not how you play golf.” Stallings had missed the cut in seven of 13 previous events since a third-place finish in the Transitions Championship. Starting the day two strokes out of the lead, Stallings made four birdies. He missed a 34footer for eagle at the par-5 17th that would have tied him with Kim, then missed a 13-footer at No. 18. Stallings has gone 42 straight holes without a bogey and will be in his first final pairing. “It’s my rookie year,” Stallings said. “I’m three-fourths of the way through. I’m sitting here just kind of pinching myself every single day to have the opportunity to play out here.” The Old White TPC underwent a makeover after Stuart Appleby shot 59 in last year’s final round to beat Jeff Overton by a stroke at 22 under. The talk all week had been about how the course’s lengthened tees and reseeded, firm greens would make low scores impossible. Jimmy Walker, who advanced to weekend play on the cut line, and Kim changed all that. Walker posted a career-best round 62 and also matched Kim’s birdie total. “You’ve got nothing to lose when you’re at the back of the pack,” Walker said. “I told my wife last night, let’s go out and attack, see what happens. It worked.” Those low scores were aided by the course’s setup. Some tees were moved up and many pin placements were favorable compared to Friday, when Phil Mickelson called the course “brutally difficult.” The field’s scoring average of 69.3 strokes was two better than Friday. “The greens felt a lot softer today,” Walker said. “You could see they were receptive right off the bat.” Walker was three strokes out

of the lead along with Bill Haas (65) and Chris Couch (67). Second-round co-leader Brendon de Jonge made two bogeys and a double-bogey on his first seven holes, shot 72 and fell into a group of seven golfers five shots back. First-round leader Trevor Immelman, seeking his first win since the 2008 Masters, went 23 holes without a bogey before a double bogey on the par-4 13th. He made four bogeys and a birdie after that, shot 73 and trailed by seven strokes. Masson leads Women’s British Open CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Caroline Masson of Germany shot a 4-under 68 to double her lead to two strokes after the third round at the Women’s British Open on Saturday. The 22-year-old Masson made three birdies in the front nine and three on the back to hold off a late charge from Yani Tseng. The top-ranked Taiwenese player closed within a shot at one stage after picking up five strokes in as many holes, including an eagle. “I was quite nervous at the start,” said Masson, who has totaled 15-under 201. “I hit a poor tee shot at the first and then three-putted from 40 feet, but I settled down with a birdie at the next when I hit my 5-iron to 7 feet and holed it. “I hit some really good shot out there today and really enjoyed it. The wind was a bit stronger and there were some tough pin positions.” Masson birdied No. 5 with a lay-up to 10 feet and the long No. 6 with an approach to 30 feet and two putts. At No. 11, she holed from 7 feet, then got up and down from a greenside bunker at the long 14th for another birdie. Her last was at No. 17 but she dropped a shot at the next after hitting into another greenside bunker.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Unflappable Olin Browne fought off the heat to shoot a 65 and forge a two-shot lead over Mark O’Meara through Saturday’s third round of the U.S. Senior Open. Browne, never a winner in his three years of competition since turning 50, set the tournament record for lowest score through 54 holes. After a record-tying 64 followed by a 69, he’s at 15under 198. O’Meara, winner of the 1998 Masters and British Open, had a 66 in a head-to-head duel. Playing in the same pairing, he pulled even with Browne with a birdie at the ninth hole but Browne had five birdies on the difficult back nine. Heading into the final round, it’s apparently a two-man race. Six shots off the pace at 9-under 204 are Jeff Sluman (65), Peter Senior (68), Joey Sindelar (69) and Mark Calcavecchia (69). Browne is trying to join Simon Hobday, who won at Pinehurst No. 2 in 1994, as the only wire-to-wire winners in the tournament’s 32 years. His 54-hole total was one better than Hobday’s 199. Browne began the day with a one-shot edge on O’Meara. They matched each other swing for swing, putt for putt, throughout a day of scorching heat and high humidity at Inverness Club. Both birdied the fourth hole, with O’Meara falling two back with a bogey on the next hole. Birdies on holes 8 and 9 helped O’Meara catch Browne heading to the back nine at the old Donald Ross layout, which plays to a par of 37 on the front but doesn’t have a par-5 hole and plays to a 34 on the last nine. Browne hit a wedge to 18 inches for birdie on the 10th hole and took off. He built a three-stroke lead with two more birdies through 13. O’Meara birdied the 17th and 18th to pull within a shot, but each time Browne — with three wins on his PGA Tour resume, the last the 2005 Deutsche Bank — dropped in a birdie putt immediately on top of O’Meara’s. Inverness again remained defenseless despite sun and high temperatures. The course was hit with almost 4 inches of rain in the last week, with a huge

SWIM WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

U.S. teenager wins 2 more gold medals Franklin takes 200 back, anchors winning 400 medley team. Phelps wins 100 fly gold. By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

SHANGHAI — Michael Phelps easily won the 100-meter butterfly, then ceded the spotlight to Missy Franklin, swimming’s newest breakout star who made a splash on her final night at the world championships. Without Milorad Cavic pushing him, Phelps scowled upon seeing his time of 50.71 seconds Saturday night. Too slow for his liking, it was still good enough to earn him a second individual gold medal and his sixth overall with one day remaining in the meet. Franklin won two more golds to leave the worlds with five medals overall — three gold, a silver and a bronze. As he watched her, Phelps recalled his first world meet in 2001 as a 15-yearold who set a world record. “I kind of remember myself being like that, full of energy all the time,” he said. “She’s just happy, just enjoying everything, she’s never tired, she’s always swimming fast. She’s really been able to come on the scene strong. I’ve said this all along, she’s a stud.” With a nickname to match — “Missile Missy,” bestowed by her father four years ago. The 16-year-old phenom has energized the entire U.S. team and coaching staff with her bubbly personality, wide smile revealing a mouth full of braces, and impressive maturity. “She’s genuinely happy and excited to race, more so than any swimmer on this team,” U.S. women’s co-captain Natalie Coughlin said. “It’s unbelievably refreshing to have her energy on the team.” Franklin led all the way to win the 200 backstroke, then anchored the U.S. women to victory in the 400 medley relay. She accomplished so much at these worlds that her coach Todd Schmitz had to shave off his goatee as payback. “I’ve never been this happy in my entire life. It has been such an incredible meet,” Franklin said. “I couldn’t ask for anything better.” Listening to her, Coughlin laughed and said, “See what I mean? So excited to be here.” Franklin set two American records, winning the 200 back in 2 minutes, 5.10 seconds — third

fastest ever — and the medley relay in 3:52.36, along with Coughlin, Rebecca Soni and Dana Vollmer. The teenager from Centennial, Colo., anchored the Americans’ victory in the 4x200 freestyle relay on Thursday, when she swam faster than Italy’s Federica Pellegrini did in winning the individual 200 free. Franklin finished nearly a second in front of 200 back silver medalist Belinda Hocking of Australia, while Sharon van Rouwendaal of the Netherlands took bronze, another 2.68 seconds behind. Franklin was asked if she was the female Phelps, a comparison that made Schmitz chafe, but one she handled with aplomb. “It’s hard to compare yourself to someone who is just that unbelievable at what he does,” Franklin said. “So right now I’m just going to stick to swimming my races and just being me and having fun with it.” Phelps won the 100 fly in 50.71 seconds after rallying from third at the turn. Konrad Czerniak of Poland took the silver at 51.15 while another American, Tyler McGill, earned bronze in 51.26. “It’s definitely more comfortable having this than having a hundredth win,” Phelps said, referring to his victory by a hundredth of a second over Cavic at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Cavic, who is still regaining his form following back surgery, didn’t advance out of the preliminaries. Phelps has three golds, two silvers and a bronze with one more event to go — the 4x100 medley relay today.

THE HARDEST TIME FOR Julian Paksi comes during the day, when he’s working. Mowing lawns gives you too much time to think, too much time to worry about a future that’s suddenly very uncertain. It’s at night when he’s lifting weights and running that his head begins to clear. Then there’s a goal, and some new totals to jot down in the journal that helps him prepare for the last football season of his life. He gets comfort from the routine because he’s been doing it most of his life. Talent wasn’t going to get him anywhere, so he became the classic overachiever. “Football has always been my life,” Paksi said. “I don’t know what my life would be like without it.” His plan had always been to anchor the defensive line this season for tiny Albion College in one final year of glory on the field. But life isn’t just about football anymore. Paksi found out just after the first of the year that he has a cancer so rare it took doctors weeks to figure out what was wrong with him. With no known cure, the only treatment is to get a new liver. If there is any good news it’s that the cancer is slow growing and so far hasn’t spread beyond the liver. Paksi was scheduled to have another MRI on Saturday just to make sure. His name should be on a liver transplant waiting list by now, but it’s not. Paksi will take his chances for a few more months, determined not to let cancer rob him of a season that means so much. To Paksi it’s simple. He’s a football player. “I’m getting so excited for the season,” he said. “I don’t want to be down, I want to be up high.” Paksi didn’t have to look far for inspiration when he was diagnosed with Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, a cancer diagnosed in only a few hundred people each year in the United States. The day he

OPINION TIM DAHLBERG found out he went to a Relay for Life cancer meeting on campus, where he met a woman who was a liver cancer survivor. Not long after he learned about Mark Herzlich, the Boston College linebacker who missed a season to bone cancer and is now trying to make the New York Giants as a rookie free agent. He’s got an article on Herzlich’s battle pasted in his journal, and he reads it during times that he’s down. I wrote about Herzlich a few days ago, which is how Paksi and I ended up connecting on the phone. His girlfriend, Samantha Cornish, wrote to let me know how important Herzlich’s fight was to Paksi. Their stories are similar, their determination much the same. Both love the game so much that they refuse to let cancer take it away. But while Herzlich was a star at a big school, a prospect so good that he was once considered a lock to be picked in the first round of the NFL draft, Paksi plays Division III football for a school of just 1,650 in south-central Michigan. The 21-year-old pays his own way just like the other players at Albion. He’s undersized at 5-foot-11, 240 pounds and he understands there is no career on the field once his senior season is over. He has only one year left to play. The new liver will have to wait. “It brings me down sometimes. I start thinking that I’m healthy, I’m a healthy kid and what did I do to deserve this,” Paksi said. “But this summer I’ve been focusing and trying not to think about it. I’m trying to live my life like it was before I knew about it.” Paksi hasn’t told many people about his condition. His fraternity brothers know, and so do a few teammates. And, of course, his coach. “Spring was the time he got most worried because he wasn’t sure if he would have the transplant before

the season,” Albion coach Craig Rundle said. “He’s handled it a lot better than I would have. He’s accepted what it is and has a positive attitude.” Rundle said Paksi is the kind of player who always had to work harder than the next player to win a spot on the field. He blossomed last year at Albion, making eight tackles one week in a win over Olivet, and is the only returning starter on the defensive line. “He’s a throwback player,” Rundle said. “He’s a real humble guy, never worries about himself, just about the team. He’s probably thought more about the team through all this than he has about himself.” Indeed, the team was on Paksi’s mind when we talked on the phone. With practice less than two weeks away, the excitement was building to see if a summer spent mowing lawns and lifting weights would pay off in one big final season. The Britons, who have been playing football since1888, finished second the last two seasons in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association conference. This year, Paksi figures they have a chance to upset conference powerhouse Trine University and win the title. Paksi knows all the dates. The opener is Sept. 3 at Butler, and the last game is home Nov. 12 at Sprankle-Sprandel Stadium on the north bank of the Kalamazoo River against Trine. One last date is Nov. 21. That’s when he has an appointment for some final tests before his name goes on the transplant list. Football will be over then. Ahead will be months of waiting for a new liver, months of worrying about what might go wrong. “It’s my life, not just my football life, and that’s what makes it such a bummer,” Paksi said. “I mean, I’m only 21 and I haven’t even graduated college.” The only comfort for Paksi is he’ll have his final season. He’ll play football one last time. He’s not about to let cancer take that away.

TRACK & FIELD

With eye on worlds, Powell wins the 100

Sprinter has one more meet to work on some things before world championships at the end of August. Americans sweep top three spots in 110 hurdles. By ABLO GORONDI Associated Press

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Asafa Powell won the 100-meter race in 9.86 seconds at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday, the fastest run in the country. The Jamaican was the only competitor to run under 10 seconds in windy conditions and 68-degree temperature at Ferenc Puskas Stadium, finishing ahead of Ngonidzashe Makusha of Zimbabwe and Andrew Hinds of Barbados. “I could have gone a lot faster today but I was working on some stuff,” said Powell, whose personal best is 9.72. “It was cold and I was a bit cautious. It was still a good time.” Powell will compete at the Aviva Grand Prix Diamond League meet in London next weekend. It’s his last race before the world championships, which start Aug. 27 in Daegu, South Korea. “This is my year and I’ll try my best. We’ll see if it’s enough for a gold medal (at the worlds),” said Powell, who won bronze in the 100 at the worlds in 2007 and 2009. Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica won the women’s 200 in 22.26 seconds, with Sanya Richards-Ross of the United States second in 22.63. Blessing Okagbare of Nigeria was third. Joel Craddock led an American sweep of the top three spots in the 110 hurdles, winning in 13.48. Kevin Craddock was second, followed by Jeff Porter. Kevin Borlee of Belgium took the 400 in 45.91, followed by Hungary’s Marcell Deak Nagy and Erison Hurtault of France. Double-amputee Oscar Pistorius of South Africa, who runs on carbon-fiber blades and qualified for the able-bodied worlds for the first time earlier this month, was last in the 400 after finishing in 47.47. “This is a really beautiful city and the crowd was really supportive. I’m just sorry I couldn’t give them a quicker time,” Pistorius said. “I hope to return one day and give them a better race.” The tournament was the inaugural edition of the Istvan Gyulai Memorial, commemorating the late Secretary General of the IAAF who died in 2006. He was a sprinter in his youth, winning 28 national championships in Hungary.

fish. “They give protection to the small fish so they don’t have to worry about getting eaten by the bigger fish in the lake,” Simmons said. “They can be protected and grow larger.” Joe Rutchauskas, who organized the habitat project for the conservation club, said both the turtle and fish structures are built out of hemlock and should last about 20 years. He said the club is talking about adding more rock habitats as well. “We enjoy doing these projects each year and it’s something the club looks forward to,” Rutchauskas said. “You really get a sense of satisfaction from it

knowing that you’re helping wildlife.” Gary Farber, one of the founders of the Youth Wilderness Experience, said the habitat project was a good way to get the kids outdoors and away from video games. Still, there was another benefit that Farber didn’t anticipate. “You see the guys from the club out here who have been doing these things all their lives, and then the kids who are just getting involved working right with them,” Farber said. “They’re connected with the club members and the Fish and Boat Commission doing something hands on for wildlife. It’s an experience that will stay with them for a long time.”

The daily limit remains three, and the possession limit is six. Migratory game bird hunters, including those afield for doves and woodcock, are required to obtain and carry a Pennsylvania migratory game bird license ($3.70 for residents, $6.70 for nonresidents), as well as a general hunting, combination or lifetime license. All waterfowl hunters age 16 and older also must possess a federal migratory game bird and conservation (duck) stamp. The “Pennsylvania 2011-12 Guide to Migratory Bird Hunting” brochure will be posted on the Game Commission’s website (www.pgc.state.pa.us) in midAugust, and the mass-produced brochure should be available at U.S. Post Offices in the state by the end of August. Hunters are encouraged to report leg-banded migratory game bird recoveries online at www.reportband.gov, or use the toll-free number (1-800-327BAND). Hunters will be requested to provide information on where, when

and what species were taken, in addition to the band number. This information is crucial to the successful management of migratory game birds. Trout Unlimited reports on drilling Trout Unlimited (TU) supports many of the recommendations from the Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission for improving the commonwealth’s oversight and management of natural gas development. While a step in the right direction, TU calls for additional protections necessary to limit impacts of Marcellus Shale development on fish, wildlife and water resources. The commission released its final report recently to Gov. Tom Corbett. “The commission’s recommendation to increase the distance from the edge of the well pad to a stream or water body is an improvement over existing regulations,” said Ken Undercoffer, president of the Pennsylvania Council See NEWS, Page 13C

ast fall I found the beginnings of a beaver dam on a small stream that emptied out of a vast wet-

lands. Back then, the beavers had just moved into the area and began to construct a small mud-packed dam across the stream. Water was beginning to pool into the grassy swamp and I knew the landscape was about to change if the beavers remained. Last week my father and I returned to the site to see what the beavers had created. What we found was a different world. The dam had now grown into an impressive structure more than five feet high in spots that stretched across the stream and well into the woods on each side. The wetlands behind the dam sit in a bowl flanked by two gradual hillsides, and the beavers had successfully dammed the open end. Getting into the wetlands, however, wasn’t an easy task. To do it, we used a beat-up 10-foot jon boat and a pair of oars. Thick grass and blueberry bushes partially submerged in knee-deep water encompassed the swamp. If we wanted to see the pond that the beavers created, we had to get through the jungle-like vegetation first. Beaver trails wound through the vegetation, so we followed one with the boat for 100 yards before the waterchoked vegetation gave way to an open pond more than five feet deep about an acre in size. Gliding out onto the newly-created beaver pond in the middle of the woods conjured up images of a pristine wilderness yet to be discovered. Small chubs, brook trout and newts darted away as we glided quietly out onto the pond’s surface. The calls of bullfrogs and green frogs emanated from the weeds and dozens of brightly colored dragonflies buzzed overhead as we explored every inch of the pond. Muskrat sign was evident on floating logs and feathers from ducks could be seen on a large boulder that they used to get out of the water and preen themselves. These were all just some of the examples of the types of wildlife that had already been attracted to the new beaver pond. After taking a break from the morning expedition, I returned to the pond later to search for something else. A beaver hut. Upstream, above the two small dams, there was a hut that the beavers constructed over the winter but was now abandoned. I knew the beavers had to have a newer hut somewhere, but I couldn’t find it despite exploring every corner of the swamp. Except one. As I glided the boat back to the main dam, I spied a watery trail that disappeared into the tall grass away from the pond. The trail was too narrow for the little jon boat, so I climbed out, pulled up my hip boots and followed the path. The water was two to three feet deep in the trail, but the grass and brush choked it down to a small corridor. I knew the trail had to lead to something, so I hunkered down and fought through the junglelike vegetation. After trudging another 50 yards, the trail curved into a flooded grove of small maple trees. I pulled back the limbs of blueberry bushes and stepped inside the flooded grove to find an enormous hut standing tall and secluded among shade of the maples. Freshly cut sticks and damp mud fortified this hut, which rose at least four feet above the water’s surface. It was clear that the beavers weren’t satisified with their other living quarters at the other end of the swamp and opted to build somewhere a bit more secluded. I stood in the flooded grove for a few minutes, admiring the hut and appreciating the new world that the beavers had created. It’s one that will continue to change and I’ll continue to explore.

of TU. “However, the recommendation allows the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to waive the distance of these setbacks, which means the requirement could easily be rendered toothless.” Undercoffer continued, “The distance between any major disturbance and a stream is critical to protecting habitat for trout.” The report also recommends that energy companies set well pads at an even greater distance from High Quality or Exceptional Value streams throughout the state The report does not specify exactly how far that distance should be in order to protect these ecologically valuable streams. “Pennsylvania has more than 15,000 miles of streams managed for trout fishing—many of which overlap with High Quality or Exceptional Value streams—and trout populations are at risk as drilling permits continue to be issued in close proximity to streams,” said Katy Dunlap, TU’s Eastern Water Project Director. “It’s critical that the legislature pick up where the commission left off and pass legislation requiring setbacks that adequately protect these valuable ecological and economic resources.” TU applauds the commission’s recommendation to restore the role played by Pennsylvania’s county conservation districts in inspecting erosion and sediment control plans at Marcellus Shale

well pad sites. County conservation districts have soil and water management expertise and are based in the region where drilling occurs. The conservation districts know the territory and the local environment and are thus well positioned to inspect a site’s erosion control practices. The report also recommends that the DEP be given the explicit authority to require a water management plan, which allows the agency to issue a permit for a water withdrawal to a gas company. TU supports consistent statewide regulation of water withdrawals for the gas industry and other large water users across the state. “The commission’s recommendation to limit gas lease agreements on state forest lands to those that result in ‘no or minimal surface disturbance’ does not go far enough toward protecting these areas,” said Dunlap. “With one-third of Penn-

sylvania’s forests already leased, a full cumulative impact study should be conducted by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) before considering leasing additional state forest lands—the places where Pennsylvanians fish and hunt.” The commission’s recommendations represent the points of agreement among agencies, industry and conservation organizations. It is imperative that Pennsylvania decision-makers do not let pass this rare opportunity to strengthen the state’s oversight of gas development. TU calls on the Pennsylvania General Assembly to move swiftly to adopt legislation this fall that gives the DEP and other state agencies the appropriate authority and resources to adequately regulate the impacts of Marcellus Shale development on rivers, streams, forests, fish and wildlife.

Looking back later this autumn, chances are this may be declared the nicest weekend of the summer weather-wise. Skies will remain mostly sunny today with high pressure allowing a westerly flow of warm, if not hot air to the region. What has been left out of the equation is the humidity, which will remain comfortably low through tonight. A few storms may pop up later tomorrow afternoon and evening as a weak cold front presses toward the region, but many areas will remain dry. Temperatures will hold on to the upper 80s right into the new week with only spotty chances for showers both Monday and Wednesday. Enjoy what's left of this wonderful summer weekend! -Ryan Coyle

The cost of prescription medicines used by millions of people every day is about to plummet. The next 14 months will bring generic versions of seven of the world’s 20 best-selling drugs, including the top two: cholesterol fighter Lipitor and

of expiring drugs patents is unprecedented. Between now and 2016, blockbusters with about $255 billion in global annual sales will go off patent, notes EvaluatePharma Ltd., a London research firm. Generic competition will decimate sales of the brand-name drugs and slash the cost to patients and companies that provide health benefits. Top drugs getting generic

ery day: Lipitor alone is taken by about 4.3 million Americans and Plavix by 1.4 million. Generic versions of big-selling drugs for blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, depression, high triglycerides, HIV and bipolar disorder also are coming by then. The flood of generics will continue for the next decade or so, as about 120 brand-name prescription drugs lose market

Medco Health Solutions Inc. “My estimation is at least 15 percent of the population is currently using one of the drugs whose patents will expire in 2011 or 2012,” says Joel Owerbach, chief pharmacy officer for Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, which serves most of upstate New York.

Declined loans to come with explanation By CLAUDIA BUCK McClatchy Newspapers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — If you’re not feeling a lender’s love, you’ll soon know exactly why you got jilted. Asoflastweek,ifalenderdeniesyou a credit card, a car loan or other loan product based on your credit score, you’re entitled to a free copy of that score. You’ll also get a list of the reasons why you got rejected. Ditto if you get a less-than-favorable interest rate on a new loan. Somecreditexpertscallthenewdisclosure rules a historic change in how consumers are treated by lenders. It’s all part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which Congress enacted last year to give consumers more clarity in their financial life. The legislation also created a new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The bureau’s mission is to ensure that consumers know exactly what they’re getting with mortgages, credit cards, loans and other financial products. Or as the fledgling bureau’s website (consumerfinance.gov) notes: It’s to ensure that “prices are clear up front, that risks are visible, and that nothing is buried in fine print.” And part of that clarity is knowing why you got dinged by a lender. In the past, if you were rejected for a credit card, you might not get any explanation. Under the new rules, you’ll now get — in the mail — the exact score used by the lender when reviewing your credit application. The letter will also include the reasons why your score was considered risky: too many late payments, balances too high, too many credit card applications, etc. “For consumers, this is the first time they’ll see their real score used by the lender. It’ll give consumers an exact pictureofwheretheystandinthelender’s eyes. ... And they’ll get this in the mail without even asking,” said John Ulzheimer, president of consumer education for SmartCredit.com. “It’s a historic change.” Just as a refresher, the mostly commonly used credit score, known as the FICO,isathree-digitnumberbetween See LOANS, Page 2D

A company ‘SEW’ fine By ANDREW M. SEDER

changing economy has led a venerable local business to re-enter a market it abandoned decades ago. A. Rifkin Co.’s sewing machines have been producing goods since the 19th century, first in the Heights section of Wilkes-Barre and since 1968 in a Hanover Township facility along the Sans Souci Parkway. Over the decades, the company that was founded in1892 by Abraham Rifkin, has adapted with the times, securing new work that would keep it in business. The company made its mark in the pre-Depression era with the patented “Rifkin-Alls” but then got out of the clothing business and focused on bank bags, and later security bags. A. Rifkin became the number one producer of bank bags in the country and signed contracts with governments in 45 states to supply them with fabric bags with chamber/seal security closures to protect provisional ballots to meet the Help America Vote Act’s requirements. But as the recession hit and it became costlier for clothing sewn in China to be imported into this country in small batches, A. Rifkin began rethinking its business model, said Paul D. Lantz, president and chief executive officer of the company. Investments in new specialized sewing machines and hiring skilled people

ontheapparelsideofthebusinessarebeginning to pay off. “We’re starting to build it,” Lantz said. Part of that growth comes from Mary Brewster, a 56-year-old entrepreneur from Redding, Conn. Thedancer,artistandteacherdecided to become a clothing designer and started a home-based business selling dance and yoga clothes made from a unique, eco-friendly yarn called Repreve that’s made from recycled products including plastic water bottles. When she was looking for companies that could sew her products, she found A. Rifkin and contacted the company. “While researching manufacturers in the United States, I found there aren’t a Mary Brewster who has a clothing company in Connecticut shows some whole lot anymore who did this,” Brewof the finished products that are made by A Rifkin Company.

Take charge in search for student loans STUDENTS PREPARING to go to college this fall might be preoccupied with choosing a computer or shopping for sheets that fit a dormitory bed. Often less attention goes into selecting college student loans. The decision gets shunted aside or made in an instant because tuition is due, loans have confusing names and the financial aid office at your college may provide little guidance. Many students assume all loans are similar — a mistake that can inflict thousands of dollars in unnecessary debt. Even if your financial aid office isn’t particularly helpful, you can identify the best loans yourself. Start with a telephone call to your college financial aid office director, and take the initiative by asking whether you might still qualify for any grants or scholarships that you have not yet requested. If you come from a modest-income family, ask about Pell Grants, which can provide up to $5,500 in money that does not have to be repaid. Then ask if you can tap any state grants in your home state or the state where you are attending school. Also try calling your state government’s department of education. After tapping as much free money as possible, your next step is to choose student loans. You want to turn first to loans from the federal government rather than private loans that come from a bank or nongovernment lender. Again, you should be directed to federal loan applications by your college financial aid office. You can get additional information at students.gov. The paperwork from your financial aid office will probably give you a choice between subsidized or unsubsidized Stafford loans. If you qualify, take the subsidized Stafford loans, which carry a $19,000 limit for four years of undergraduate studies. Subsidized means the government reduces your costs by absorbing interest during in-school deferment and provides a very low interest rate, of 3.4 percent, for loans originated during the 2011-12 academic year. That’s a lot better than the 6.8 percent on the regular Stafford loan. Also, because interest on an unsubsidized loan accumulates while you are in school, your balance would be about 16 percent higher compared with a subsidized loan, said Mark Kantrowitz, publisher of FinAid. Keep in mind that for 2012-13, the subsidized-loan rate increases to match the rate for an unsubsidized loan. Typically, if your family’s income is no higher than $50,000 you will be in a good position to qualify for a subsidized loan. More than $100,000 makes it unlikely but not impossible. Factors like having retired parents or multiple siblings in college will affect eligibility. Cost of the college also can make a difference, Kantrowitz said. If you can’t get a subsidized loan, choose the regular Stafford loan. Also, ask your college financial aid office if you can get a Perkins loan. These are federal loans with a 5 percent interest rate, and they go to students who have lower incomes than most students at a particular college. So if you come from a middle-income family, but attend a college that attracts affluent students, you might qualify for a Perkins loan at that college, even though you wouldn’t at a community college with many low-income students. If you are like many students, you might find that the federal loans you are offered are not adequate to cover all your costs. In that case, your parents can borrow additional money using what are called PLUS loans. The interest rate is set at 7.9 percent. Another alternative: private loans. But beware. Although federal loans all have fixed rates, that will never increase during the 10 years you pay them off, that’s not the case with many private student loans. They might have a starter interest rate that looks attractive, but with a variable rate that can increase continually over 10 years. So the rate might climb well past the 7.9 percent on parent PLUS loans.

Sally Smith’s (chicken) wings are soaring By CHRISTINA REXRODE AP Business Writer

Sally Smith became CEO of Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. after the other guy didn’t show up. It was 1996 and Smith was the top finance officer for the chicken wings chain, which was still relatively small,withabout Smith 70 restaurants. The founders, friends Jim Disbrow and Scott Lowery, had opened the first Buffalo Wild Wings 14 years earlier, after moving to Columbus, Ohio, from Buffalo, N.Y. Unable to find Buffalostyle chicken wings in their new town, they’d opened Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck, cooking sauces in their apartment kitchen and playing MTV in the restaurant to attract Ohio State college students. But the pair knew they needed help taking the business from a labor of love to a professionally managed corporation, especially because Disbrow, by then CEO, was about to leave to run the U.S. Figure Skating Association. They chose the operations vice president of another restaurant as their new chief exec. But he didn’t show up on his scheduled first day. The board members huddled, then told Smith a few days later that they wanted her to be CEO. She doesn’t really remember agreeing to take the job; it was just

assumed that she would. She got the books in order, shookupthesupplychainandadded marketing, human resources and finance departments. She set out to diversify the customer base, and she dropped “Weck” from the end of the name (a weck is a caraway roll popular in Buffalo). In 2003, she took the company public. The chain has since grown to about 750 restaurants, including one in Ontario that opened in May, marking Buffalo Wild Wings’ first international expansion. Now, Smith is eyeing London. Unlike many competitors, the Minneapolis-based chain has weathered the recession well. Its revenue rose 14 percent last year, when U.S. revenue fell at Applebee’s, Chili’s and Ruby Tuesday, according to Technomic, a restaurant industry research firm. Smith, 53, talked to The Associated Press about when to get the biggest chicken wings, what she looks for in job applicants and what’s worrying the restaurant industry. Q. What was Buffalo Wild Wings like when you first got there? A. We had a commissary and everything came through it. They were buying chicken wings, bringing them to the commissary and sending them back out to the franchisees. We had about 14 trucks, and it was not efficient. If we were going to open a restaurant in Tex-

as, you ended up having a truck that had to go from Columbus to Texas. Q. How did you reshape the brand? A. The restaurants were really college bars. And there’s nothing wrong with college bars, but you probably weren’t going to raise money. We started delivering the food to the (tables). We did higher ceilings, windows, we expanded the menu. We updated the logo — it was a Buffalo nickel on a plain cream background. Q.Doyoueverhearpeoplecomplain their wings are getting smaller? A. In the summer, wings tend to be smaller because chickens don’t eat as much. In the winter, they’re eating more. You also have Thanksgiving and Christmas, timeswhentheplantsaretypically closed. So chickens the next week have much bigger wings. Q. You’re chairwoman of the National Restaurant Association. What are restaurants worried about right now? A. What’s going to happen with the health care bill (which requires most businesses to offer health insurance to any employee who works an average of at least 30 hours a week).

Credit reports are compiled by the three reporting bureaus (Experian, Equifax and TransUnion). The new rules do not cover mortgage loans, which already require disclosure of credit scores.

Wind turbines growing taller and more powerful By TIFFANY HSU Los Angeles Times

PRICES

Marina del Rey, Calif., company Green Wavelength is looking to commercialize the technology. But “there’s a lot of people interested in this kind of thing, taking energy out of the wind,” he said. That’s because there’s a lot of money being poured into finding ways to ease off coal-based electricity. Last year, the Department of Energy set aside a record $79 million for its wind program budget — nearly $20 million more than its previous top allotment in 1980. General Electric Co., which makes half of the turbines in the U.S., has invested more than $1.5 billion developing renewable energy technology since entering the wind business in 2002. Google Inc., the Internet search giant, and its philanthropic arm have plunged millions of dollars into new wind concepts. At the moment, most turbines are designed to look like streamlined windmills: Blades connected to a rotor, usually mounted high on a tower to capture stronger gusts, spin like propellers in the wind. The rotor helps turn a shaft connected to a generator, which produces electricity. But companies are coming up with innovative variations. An Alameda, Calif., company,

Continued from Page 1D

LOS ANGELES — Wind turbines are getting really big — some with blades as long as a football field — and more powerful, often generating 50 times more electricity than the first generation of wind power machines built in the 1980s. But scientists are also studying how to harness the wind in different ways that could help allay concerns that today’s turbines are unattractive, noisy and sometimes even dangerous. Already in the works: Turbines that float and turbines that fly. Turbines without blades and turbines with blades fat enough to fit a double-decker bus inside. They won’t just be on hillsides either. Some will be in the ocean, while others will be on rooftops and light poles. A few will even be in the sky. One design was inspired by the humble bumblebee. Sabri Sansoy, an MIT graduate and former rocket engineer, has built a 19-foot-tall prototype whose blades, rather than spin in a circle, move in a figure-eight motion like the insect’s wings. Sansoy hopes the design will generate more electricity than turbines of similar size. “I’ve been called everything from brilliant to a nincompoop over this,” said Sansoy, whose See TURBINES, Page 4D

ster said. And with an easy drive from New England to Northeastern Pennsylvania, she said the location was an added bonus. What she heard and saw from the company’s employees seemed like a perfect fit, said Brewster, whose company American Flora is in its first year of operations, with itsproductssoldthroughawebsite and at trunk sales. “I was very impressed with the production facility and the way they do things,” she said about her first visit to the facility last year. “This was a slice of America. That’s how I felt and that’s what I

was looking for.” She said she wanted to support the planet by using recycled products, support the dance community by creating comfortable and fashionable items and she wanted to support her country by having her goods made domestically. To date she’s ordered close to 1,000 garments, including leotards, tank tops and yoga pants. That’s in addition to 100 tote bags made from used poly-vinyl billboards donated to her by Adams Outdoor Advertising. Lantz said he’s amazed with the ideas people have come up with and he’s glad the company is able to help out. “It’s fascinating to see what people are trying to do,” Lantz said. “There’s so many people that

have been downsized or lost jobs that they’re looking to control their own lives,” Lantz said. Brewster didn’t lose her job but the thought of trying to help dancers, while helping the environment and making some money for herself seemed like a worthy endeavor. “Ilovetheconceptofbusinessin abasement,”saidBrewster,whose daughter Rebecca and two interns assist her. Lantz, 57, of Kingston, said A. Rifkin loves it, too. He said that whilebankandvotingbagsarestill their biggest lines, about 70 percent of all items produced by the company, contract sewing now accounts for about 10 percent of its business. And the apparel portion of that “is still relatively tiny.”

But it creates an opportunity for growth, which bank bags haven’t provided. There are only so many banks, Lantz said, but optimistically adding, “we are still far away from being cashless and paperless.” But with more people like Brewster, the reliance on bags could dwindle. “We have to adapt,” said Lantz, “because we don’t want to become just a distributor.” He said the purchase of new equipment to handle the apparel business “is worth the investment long-term but we haven’t made money on that side yet.” Brewster hopes to change that, because if she places more orders with Rifkin, it means her business is taking off.

because generic drugs typically cost 20 percent to 80 percent less than the brand names. Doctors hope the lower prices will significantly reduce the number of people jeopardizing their health because they can’t afford medicines they need. Even people with private insurance or Medicare aren’t filling all their prescriptions, studies show, particularly for cancer drugs with copays of hundreds of dollars or more. The new generics will slice copayments of those with insurance. For the uninsured, who have been paying full price, the savings will be much bigger. Daly Powers, 25, an uninsured student who works two part-time jobs at low wages, says he often can’t afford the $220 a month for his depression and attention deficit disorder pills. He couldn’t buy either drug in June and says he’s struggling with his Spanish class and his emotions. He looks forward to his antidepressant, Lexapro, going generic early next year. “It’d make all the difference in the world,” says Powers, of Bryan, Texas. Generic medicines are chemically equivalent to the original brand-name drugs and work just as well for nearly all patients. When a drug loses patent protection, often only one generic version is on sale for the first six months, so the price falls a little bit initially. Then, several other generic makers typically jump in, driving prices down dramatically. Last year, the average generic prescription cost $72, versus $198 for the average brand-name drug, according to consulting firm Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions. Those figures average all prescriptions, from short-term to 90-day ones. Average copayments last year

were $6 for generics, compared with $24 for brand-name drugs given preferred status by an insurer and $35 for nonpreferred brands, according to IMS Health. Among the drugs that recently went off patent, Protonix, for severe heartburn, now costs just $16 a month for the generic, versus about $170 for the brand name. And of the top sellers that soon will have competition, Lipitor retails for about $150 a month, Plavix costs almost $200 a month and blood pressure drug Diovan costs about $125 a month. For those with drug coverage, their out-of-pocket costs for each of those drugs could drop below $10 a month. Many discount retailers and grocery chains sell the most popular generics for $5 a month or less to draw in shoppers. The impact of the coming wave of generics will be widespread — and swift. Insurers use systems that make sure patients are switched to a generic the first day it’s available. Many health plans require newly diagnosed patients to start on generic medicines. And unless the doctor writes “brand only” on a prescription, if there’s a generic available, that’s almost always what the pharmacist dispenses. “A blockbuster drug that goes off patent will lose 90 percent of its revenue within 24 months. I’ve seen it happen in 12 months,” says Ben Weintraub, a research director at Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions. Drug companies have received U.S. approval for 20 drugs this year and expect approval for other important ones the next few years. Eventually, those will help fill the revenue hole. For now, brand-name drugmakers are scrambling to adjust for the billions in revenue that will soon be lost. Typically, they raise prices 20 percent or more in the final years before generics hit to maximize revenue. Some also contract with generic drugmakers for “authorized generics,” which give the brand-name company a portion of the generic sales.

Businesses find ways to Email snooping crosses the line, invades personal life adapt in slow economy By MARIE G. MCINTYRE McClatchy-Tribune News Service

In a slow economy, small business owners know what to do: adapt. “We have to constantly keep adjusting,” says Janice Cutler, president of North Raleigh Florist in North Carolina. She has changed her marketing strategy since the start of the recession in late 2007. That has kept people buying — even though flowers aren’t always a high priority. At Graphic Imagery, a printing company in South San Francisco, owner Rachel Imison and her husband are working harder for each sale. And they’ve invested in new equipment that gets the work done better. Here’s a look at how four small business owners have adapted to an economy that keeps limping along: • Cutler says her floral business has done well despite the recession because people still need flowers for holidays, special occasions and big events like weddings. “But the economy has definitely affected us in that we would be doing better,” if some customers weren’t cutting back on regular purchases, she says. For example, consumers and companies that used to order flowers regularly as decorations. Her answer to the recession was to market her flowers differently. “We do more than just sell flowers. It’s a sentiment,” she says. The strategy has been working. Cutler says, “we’ve honestly had double-digit growth every month.” • At Graphic Imagery, “we are working longer hours, customers are demanding more for less, the average value of each sale is lower,” Imison says. But she understands that her customers are under as much pressure as her company is. To meet customers’ greater demands, Graphic Imagery invested $500,000 in equipment that al-

lows it to print more efficiently and cheaply. It’s able to make booklets and brochures faster — sometimes in as little as a day. The company is also trying to keep its costs down. It’s putting off hiring because, while business has been good, “we’re not confident yet,” Imison says. Her family is putting off its vacation this year, something it also did during the recession. “We’re still anxious,” Imison says. • Alan Gaynor & Co., a New York-based architectural firm, was primarily doing interior design work for companies before the recession. That meant redesigning lobbies, offices and other spaces. That type of business began to slow at the start of 2008. But the firm started getting more projects to renovate building infrastructure. “We realized that was a good market for us,” says Michele Boddewyn, the firm’s president. She says that after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008, the market for corporate interior design “was very dead.” The interior design market has recovered somewhat, but projects are smaller. Boddewyn says of clients, “if they have a wish list of 10 things, maybe they’re hitting seven of those 10.” • Brian Butler’s dry cleaning business in Columbus, Ohio, caters to affluent customers. He says Dublin Cleaners held on to them by giving them superior service. Like Graphic Imagery, his company invested in new equipment and technology that improved the quality of its work and also made it easier to satisfy customers’ needs. Dublin had its best sales in 2007. Business fell in 2008 through 2010, but Butler says sales were down only 2 percent to 4 percent each year. That was below the industry average of 10 percent. He says the company is back up near its 2007 level.

uation and put a stop to this inappropriate behavior.” You can then provide whatever proof you have of these intrusions. If management fails to take immediate action, informally spread the word that accessing personal accounts at work can make them vulnerable to viewing by others.

Q: After two days at my new job, I have not yet signed a payroll form or been told about my work hours. This is a small family business that has been quite successful, but seems very disorganized. I have made two appointments with the owners to discuss my schedule, but they forgot both times. Is this a bad sign? A: While this confusion may be disturbing, it is not unusual. Many successful small companies expand so quickly that their

Makani Power Inc., is developing a kite-like contraption that generates electricity as it whips in circles in the wind. Another firm, Magenn Power Inc., has built a giant spinning blimp with generators affixed to each end. It somewhat resembles a giant inflatable hamster wheel. Some machines could double as art installations. Poway, Calif.based Helix Wind Corp.’s turbine looks like a spiral staircase wrapped in a white sheet. Another model, from WindTronics, evokes a large bicycle wheel — or Sauron’s eye from “The Lord of the Rings.” Although many current installations are limited to sites with just the right mix of topography and wind speed, designers are starting to create turbines that can adapt to a wide range of terrains. One Italian proposal involves wind turbines being built between the pillars of a bridge. Last month, turbine manufacturer Vestas said it adapted military

stealth technology that can keep turbines from interfering with airport and army radar systems, potentially opening up new sites. The popularity of rooftop solar panels has sparked a surge of smaller wind turbines that can sit atop buildings. Municipalities around the country are gradually updating zoning rules to allow for the more compact models. Technology like the not-quite-6foot-tall Eddy from Urban Green

Energy Inc. has popped up at trade shows in China and the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Turbines could also end up in the oceans as developers try to tap powerful sea breezes. Researchers say those machines could generate many times more power than land-based ones. In March, Vestas announced a 7-megawatt offshore turbine that will be more than 600 feet tall

processes and procedures can’t keep up with the growth. To compound this problem, the founders are often entrepreneurial types who are not the most organized people in the world. Whether this is a bad omen or an excellent opportunity depends largely on the nature of your position. If you have an administrative job, you may have actually been hired to help bring order out of this chaos. In that case, your organizational skills will soon make you indispensable. On the other hand, if your work leaves you at the mercy of these muddled managers, you may soon need a crash course in stress reduction.

from the blade tip to the bottom of the tower. The blades will sweep in a circle larger than the London Eye Ferris wheel. The monstrous machines, to be made mostly with recyclable materials, will be mass produced by 2015, Vestas said. One turbine in Germany spans nearly 700 feet from the bottom of the tower to the blade tip. Other developers say that land-based turbines with 300-foot blades may be ready within a decade. But some said scaling up isn’t always the way to go. “The wind industry’s central tenet now is that bigger is better,” said John O. Dabiri, an aeronautics professor who runs Caltech’s Center for Bioinspired Engineering. “It certainly goes against conventional wisdom, but we’re taking the opposite perspective.” But some of the newfangled models may not go far, said Nancy Rader, executive director of the California Wind Energy Association. The technology with the most longevity probably will be variations of current turbines, she said. “In 20 years, I think it’s going to be more of the same,” she said.

By JOYCE M. ROSENBERG AP Business Writer

Q: The woman whose desk is next to mine spends hours on Facebook and even refers to herself as an “online stalker.” She is pals with our network administrator, who supposedly likes to read every email that comes into the company. I recently figured out that these two have been reading my personal email whenever I access my account at work. Even more alarming, they apparently tried to log in to my online banking. Because they exceeded the allowed number of password attempts, I was locked out of the account when I got home. To prevent this prying, I have stopped checking my personal email at work. This frustrates my co-worker, who now tries to make me log on by saying that she sent me a picture or joke.

When I reply that I’ll read it at home, she gets really annoyed. What else can I do about this? A: If the cyber-snoopers are this eager to invade your privacy, then they are undoubtedly doing the same to other unsuspecting employees. Therefore, in addition to protecting yourself, you might also take steps to protect your colleagues. Given the serious nature of the offense, talking to someone in management or human resources would seem to be the appropriate next step. If you know of others who have been victimized, they can also attend and help present the case. For example: “We thought you should know that some people in the company have been reading their co-workers’ personal email online and have even tried to get into their bank accounts.

MarketPulse SHOW ME THE SALES One of the best surprises this earnings season is how strong revenue growth has been. Total revenue is up 9.9 percent from a year earlier for the S&P 500 companies that reported their second-quarter results through Thursday. If they keep up the pace, it would be the best revenue growth in a year. It could also mean that companies are moving into the second phase of earnings growth, say Deutsche Bank strategists: If companies can depend on stronger revenue to raise their profits, they’ll focus less on cutting jobs and other costs.

NOT EVERYONE’S STRUGGLING Governments around the world are getting financially weaker, which means credit-rating agencies are busy cutting their ratings. Greece is already in junk status, and agencies warn that the U.S. may lose its top rating. Then there’s Uruguay. Standard & Poor’s upped the South American country’s rating to BB+ last week. That means it’s just one level away from graduating to investment grade from junk status. S&P cited Uruguay’s “prudent and consistent economic policies.” Compare that with how S&P described the U.S. debate on cutting the deficit: “entangled.”

investors should be skeptical not only about U.S. numbers but other countries’ as well. After looking at official forecasts for growth and budget balances by 33 countries, Professor Jeffrey Frankel found that they were often too rosy. They also tended to be even more biased during economic booms. One exception was Chile, which tended to be too pessimistic.

TOO ROSY Remember when the U.S. government said in 2001 that the country could have a total budget surplus of $5.6 trillion over the next 10 years? It was off by about $11.8 trillion. One reason for the miss was that the government’s forecasts for future growth were too optimistic, says research from Harvard University. And

Where to find income The U.S. government’s fiscal troubles mean bond investors should focus more on corporate and municipal bonds, says George Strickland, managing director at Thornburgh Investment Management, which has about $84 billion in assets under management. He is also co-portfolio manager of Thornburg’s Strategic Income Fund.

InsiderQ&A

What will happen if the U.S. loses its top AAA credit rating? In the short run, I would expect there would not be a huge effect because investors have virtually noStrickland where else to go. If you’re a (mutual fund with a mandate to invest in) U.S. government bonds, you literally have nowhere else to go. If you’re a high-quality buyer, you can shift some of your incremental purchases to high-grade corporates, but it’s a much smaller market. Mortgages, the high-quality ones, are agency backed, which are implicitly government backed. Many (mutual funds) can’t take cross-currency risk and go to (German) bunds, so really you’ve got nowhere else to go Longer term, I think that the U.S. government and U.S. government bond market (has benefited) greatly from being a store of value, something that’s rock solid when nothing else is. I think we’re damaging that image in a longterm way. We’ve already done it, but a downgrade would do more damage to our image as a store of wealth. I think we’ll see a continued incremental shift on the part of both central governments and private buyers of debt toward other markets.

Treasury yields drop

Jump on the bandwagon Many investors look at a stock like Priceline.com and get uneasy. It’s up 560 percent since the start of the bull market on March 10, 2009. After that kind of advance, there’s no way a stock can go much higher, they say. But some fund managers expect stocks that have shot higher to keep on going. They use a strategy known as momentum investing. To understand how the strategy works, think of a runaway train. The longer it stays on the track, the more speed it builds up. It keeps getting faster — until it hits a sharp turn. So momentum fund managers buy even when a stock is high — and then try to sell before it derails. It’s a strategy that tends to work long-term, but it can also be volatile. Some things to remember about momentum investing:

DON’T TRY IT AT HOME

Although it sounds simple, picking

gomery, CEO of Bridgeway Funds.

How a momentum fund has fared against a value fund.

IT CAN GET EXPENSIVE

A momentum strategy depends on regularly switching out stocks in a fund. Turnover — the rate at which a portfolio replaces its stocks with new ones — can be up to 150 percent for momentum funds. Some stock funds with different strategies have turnover rates as low as 22 percent. Investors pay a fee every time a stock in their fund is bought or sold. So returns from a momentum fund must be high enough to offset those costs.

Really, you’re not losing any sleep over municipals? I’m not losing any sleep. Some people potentially are, but U.S. municipalities have demonstrated a lot more fiscal responsibility than the U.S. government. Their budgets are smaller than they were a couple years ago, and their tax revenues are growing pretty nicely.

But municipalities are at risk of getting less federal aid. It’s definitely a concern, but municipalities have had to tighten their belt straps for several years now, and I think that they’ll by and large continue to do that. There may be some exceptions to that rule, but by and large, I think we’ll see them through this crisis in pretty good shape.

What kind of corporate bonds do you like? With high-grade bonds, the (prices) just don’t offer enough to justify it. So we’re more in the high speculative grade and low investment grade. That’s probably the sweet spot. It’s kind of interesting, because there’s a lot of demand for the juiciest bond deals, for the highest yielding, highest risk stuff, and there’s a lot of demand for the highest quality stuff, but investors don’t seem to be buying at the train stops in between.

And you like corporates because of how much cash they have? Corporate cash flows are very good, and corporate balance sheets and the absolute level of debt both look quite good. You have to be a little concerned about what happens to the economy going forward. If we actually do get fiscal tightening of let’s call it $3 trillion over 10 years, that’ll shave probably 1.5 to 2 percent off of (economic) growth, which would make you a little concerned about the high-yield market place.

Should U.S. investors be looking at foreign bonds instead? If you’re a U.S. based investor, you should have most of your money in U.S. bonds. For a variety of reasons, U.S. corporates and U.S. municipals are where you should have the bulk of your assets versus U.S. Treasurys. First of all, you get (more yield than you do with) Treasurys, and you don’t lose sleep over the political dynamics.

IT’S A SIDE DISH, NOT A MAIN COURSE

2011

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell close to its lowest level of the year. Treasury yields drop when their prices rise, and investors are buying Treasurys despite the government’s warning that it may default unless politicians allow it to borrow more. Many investors don’t believe the government will default. Lower yields pull down mortgage and other consumer loan rates.

IN THE ARENA

OPINION

Raise ceiling through use of executive power

Mr. President, the buck stops at your desk

CONSEQUENCES, elections have them. The terrible spectacle we are witnessing in Washington over the urgent need to raise America’s debt ceiling is a direct result of congressional elections less than one year ago. In November, Republicans picked up an astonishing 63 seats in the House of Representatives. Their 179-256 minority status instantly became a 242-193 majority granting them the power to appoint the House speaker and chairs of every standing committee. In April, the new Republican majority passed legislation to undo Medicare for everyone younger than 55, replacing it with a coupon that senior citizens would carry to insurance companies, hat in hand, and attempt to purchase some health care coverage. In July, House Republicans have the United States, and everyone’s 401k, on the brink of economic calamity. Elections have consequences. Raising the debt ceiling — the statutory level necessary to pay the nation’s bills “authorized by law” and already incurred — is a perfunctory measure. But these are not your typical Republicans being elected to Congress. Rather, they are a cadre of extremists — fast approaching critical mass in the House and Senate. Not since 1948 has a political party benefited by a shift of 63 seats in the House. Last year the Senate GOP gained six seats, increasing its number to 49 of 100 senators. Two more Senate seats and Republicans will have a majority in that chamber as well. Elections have serious consequences. The new House majority selected U.S. Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, to be their speaker. Before doing so, Boehner needed to solicit and accept support from the dozens of far-right members in his conference. As a result the veteran Boehner, certainly no ideologue, had his hands full, if not tied. Never was it more evident than on Tuesday when Speaker Boehner announced his latest debt ceiling proposal to nowhere. Instantly he was opposed by members of his own party, many led by right-wing Congressman James Jordan, who quickly announced that Boehner would not have the votes to pass it. Jordan’s Ohio congressional district adjoins that of his speaker. When will thoughtful Republicans move to take back their party? On Wednesday, as the Dow was dropping 198 points, a frustrated U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., took the Senate floor to chastise the Republican fringe opposed to increasing America’s debt ceiling. And the conservative Wall Street Journal added, “The idea seems to be that if the House GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling, a default crisis or gradual government shutdown will ensue and the public will turn en masse against Barack Obama. Then Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements, and the tea party hobbits could return to Middle Earth having defeated Mordor.” McCain and the WSJ do not a trend make, but the intentions of “tea party hobbits” are known and Republicans will have an opportunity to root them out. Yet none of this resolves the immediate crises facing our nation. While more information might have become known over the weekend, if no congressional resolution is at hand, President Obama should put an end to the global economic uncertainty before markets open in the morning. The president should raise the debt ceiling by executive order. Citing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution the president can free the American people, their government and all future presidents from ever again being held hostage to the unconstitutional debt ceiling charade. Amendment 14, Section 4: “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law … shall not be questioned.”

OUR government with its checks and balances and need for consensus makes for difficult navigation, even if you are captain of the ship. One of the interesting questions to ponder is assessing how much power a president really has to resolve critical issues. The rest of us have the luxury of being out of the line of fire while this country’s leaders face the threat that we will soon be out of money and unable to pay our bills. President Harry Truman said “the buck stops here” — at the president’s desk — and he was right. Perhaps it’s too simplistic to view the presidency this way, but the person in the Oval Office is the ultimate decision-maker for the government of our country. He takes the lion’s share of the blame or the credit for events that unfold during his administration. President Obama shoulders blame for failing over the last few weeks to get the consensus he needed to raise the debt ceiling and he failed to save the country from the maddening debate over spending cuts vs. tax increases. As is often the case, the president can’t win. He made a meaningful attempt to reach an agreement with the Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner. The plan failed but it brought Obama criticism from those on the far left of his own party who believed he had abandoned them and the progressive Democratic principles they espouse. Republicans, meanwhile, even those he was attempting to appease, do not believe Obama does enough of anything to help move the country forward. The internal revolt within the two parties is almost comical. Liberals say Obama isn’t liberal enough. The tea party folks say Boehner isn’t conservative enough. At some point Obama will have to act as if he’s the CEO of the country and support a plan — his own or someone else’s. By week’s end, he hadn’t done that; he still seemed to be waiting for someone else to solve the problem. The 2012 election is a long way in the future, but the president knows what the defining issue will be in his campaign for re-election: the economy, and by that I do not mean our debt level or ability to borrow. The economy, for purposes of politics, can be measured in three words: jobs, jobs, jobs. The debate over the debt ceiling on the debt is more philosophical than real. Jobs are real. The state of the economy is real. While the debate was raging over the debt ceiling, news reports were shouting more bad news: “The United States economy has slowed considerably this year from a year ago,” said a report from the Commerce Department released on Friday. The news came as Congress wrangled over how to put the nation on a more sustainable fiscal path without slowing the recovery even more, or throwing the country back into recession. It is unbelievable that a person runs for president and does not realize they have to make the tough decisions and solve the problems that split not only the political parties but the ranks within the parties. If you want to be the nation’s chief executive, you have to know that the buck stops with you. We have problems underlying the debt ceiling and borrowing crisis. They are the most serious we face. The president must find a way to put people back to work and enable a recovery of our economy as a whole. Those are the priorities. The CEO of the country needs to lead. President Obama should not get a pass because his job and the process of democracy are difficult. He wanted the job and now he should do it.

OUR OPINION: DEBT DEBATE

I

Your call to be heard in D.C.

F YOU FOLLOWED the debt ceiling debate last week in Washington, D.C., and found it (inspiring / disheartening), you’re probably about ready to (cheer / weep) now that Congress finally appears poised to (take back our country by restoring fiscal sanity / push the nation over a cliff). Can you believe how reckless (President Obama / House Speaker Boehner) has been about this monumental matter? If nothing else, the crisis again displayed how wrongheaded the (Democrats’ agenda / Republicans’ ideology) is today and the extent to which Washington remains (dysfunctional / dysfunctional). No matter where you stand, let your elected federal officials know how you feel – and how you expect them to vote. Call their capital offices or visit their websites for district office phone numbers, email addresses and straight-from-the-source explanations of their views on the latest debt ceiling legislation. ❏ U.S. Sen.

Sky, not the ceiling, is the limit for runaway spending THE BIG news, as far as the media are concerned, is the political game of debt-ceiling chicken that is being played by Democrats and Republicans in Washington. But, however much the media are focused on what is happening inside the Beltway, there is a whole country outside the Beltway – and the time is long overdue to start thinking about what is best for the rest of the country, not just for right now but for the long haul. No matter how the debt-ceiling crisis turns out, the current economic turmoil in financial markets around the world should cause some serious thoughts about the long run, and about the whole idea of a national debt-ceiling. Some people might have been shocked when the credit-rating firm Moody’s recently suggested that the debt-ceiling law be repealed, in order to avoid fiscal crises that can throw world financial markets into turmoil and injure countries around the world. Anyone who wants to show that Moody’s is wrong should be prepared to show the actual benefits of the debt-ceiling, not its goals or hopes. That will not be easy, if possible at all. Too many policies, programs and institutions are judged by what they are supposed to do, rather than by what they actually do – and the consequences of their

COMMENTARY

Anti-tax governors fiscally reprehensible, not responsible TWELVE NEW governors who ran on anti-tax platforms have now signed their first fiscal year budgets. All of them will tell you they were elected with a mandate to get their state’s fiscal house in order, rein in government spending and cut taxes. Some of them will even tell you they view New Jersey’s Chris Christie as their model – a “primo example” according to Wisconsin’s Scott Walker – of how a conservative governor governs. This should alarm you. Gov. Christie recently vetoed a widely popular and eminently sensible tax on New Jersey millionaires. This temporary tax, affecting a mere 0.2 percent of all households, would have generated around $500 million, primarily for public schools. In the same budget, Christie raised (yes, raised) taxes on his state’s working poor by cutting about $45 million from the Earned Income Tax Credit, which helps people working full-time in lowwage jobs to make ends meet. He went on to shred the Democratic legislature’s budget, which paid for things such as police protection, a health-care safety net and college tuition grants. Christie said no to all of it, insisting the state didn’t have the money. And yet he managed to set aside $640 million ($365 million if you accept his revised

COMMENTARY MATTHEW GARDNER math) that he calls a “healthy and necessary” surplus – necessary to his career, maybe, but not healthy for his constituents. New Jersey is one of more than 30 states that, in 2009, decided temporarily to boost some taxes to help make up revenues that were drying up with the recession. Even with those temporary infusions, states had to excise billions from their budgets to stay in the black. Those mostly two-year fixes have now expired, as have the federal stimulus dollars that kept many state budgets afloat. Now, with hospitals, schools and police forces scarcely shadows of their former selves, and college tuition up as much as 50 percent and even 100 percent since 2008, governors such as Christie are hoarding surpluses while heaping burdens on average taxpayers, too many of whom remain un- or under-employed. In Michigan, with its infamously precarious economy, freshman Gov. Rick Snyder delivered a particularly irrational budget. He slashed all kinds of spending, cut business taxes by more than a billion dollars, then reduced the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit by 70 percent, raising taxes on the state’s

working poor by more than $260 million each year. According to our analysis, the poorest 20 percent of Michiganders will be hit hardest by the package of tax hikes that Snyder pushed through. All to pay for allegedly job-creating tax cuts for business, even as the governor admits he “can’t guarantee” economy-boosting results. Governors across the country have signed budgets like these, with excruciating cuts in government services, incomprehensible tax increases for low- and middle-income households and utterly mystifying tax breaks benefiting businesses and individuals with healthy portfolios. Like Christie, each of these governors left hundreds of millions of available funds (previous surpluses or projected revenues) unspent. They like to call it “fiscally responsible,” but sitting on millions while raising the cost of living for low- and middle-income families and passing the buck to cities and counties (which is exactly what these stripped down state budgets do, make no mistake) is anything but fiscally responsible. It is, however, politically profitable. And taxpaying citizens should not fall for this shell game. Matthew Gardner is executive director of the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.

Who wants a piece of Obama’s wreckage? WE’RE IN the midst of a great four-year national debate on the size and reach of government, the future of the welfare state, indeed, the nature of the social contract between citizen and state. The distinctive visions of the two parties – social-democratic versus limited-government – have underlain every debate on every issue since Barack Obama’s inauguration: the stimulus, the auto bailouts, health care reform, financial regulation, deficit spending. Everything. The debt ceiling is but the latest focus of this fundamental divide. The sausage-making might be unsightly, but the problem is not that Washington is broken, that ridiculous ubiquitous cliché. The problem is that these two visions are in competition, and the definitive popular verdict has not yet been rendered. We’re only at the midpoint. Obama won a great victory in 2008 that he took as a mandate to transform America toward European-style social democracy. The subsequent counterrevolution delivered to that project a staggering rebuke in November 2010. Under our incremental system, however, a rebuke delivered is not a mandate conferred. That awaits definitive resolution, the rubber match of November 2012. But reversal – rollback, in Cold War parlance – is simply not achievable until conservatives receive a mandate to govern from the White House. Lincoln is reputed to have said: I hope to have God on my side, but I must have Kentucky. I don’t know whether conservatives have God on their side (I keep getting sent to His voice mail), but I do know that they don’t have Kentucky – they don’t have the Senate, they don’t have the White House. And under our constitutional system, you cannot govern from one house alone. Given this reality, trying to force the issue – turn a blocking minority into a governing authority – is not just counterconstitutional in spirit but self-destructive in practice. Consider the Boehner Plan for debt reduction. The Heritage Foundation’s advocacy arm calls it “regrettably insufficient.” Of course it is. That’s what happens when you control only half a branch. But the plan’s achievements are significant. It is all cuts, no taxes. It establishes the prece-

COMMENTARY CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER dent that debt-ceiling increases must be accompanied by equal spending cuts. And it provides half a year to both negotiate more fundamental reform (tax and entitlement) and keep the issue of debt reduction constantly in the public eye. I am somewhat biased about the Boehner Plan because for weeks I’ve been arguing (in this column and elsewhere) for precisely such a solution: a two-stage debt-ceiling hike consisting of a half-year extension with dollar-for-dollar spending cuts, followed by intensive negotiations on entitlement and tax reform. It’s clean. It’s understandable. It’s veto proof. (Obama won’t dare.) The Republican House should have passed it weeks ago. After all, what is the alternative? The Reid Plan with its purported $2 trillion of debt reduction? More than half of that comes from not continuing surge-level spending in Iraq and Afghanistan for the next 10 years. Ten years? We’re out of Iraq in 150 days. The Congressional Budget Office has found that Harry Reid’s other discretionary savings were overestimated by $400 billion. The Obama plan? There is no Obama plan. And the McConnell plan, a final resort that punts the debt issue to Election Day, would likely yield no cuts at all. Obama faces two massive problems – jobs and debt. They’re both the result of his spectacularly failed Keynesian gamble: massive spending that left us a stagnant economy with high and chronic unemployment – and a staggering debt burden. Obama is desperate to share ownership of this failure. Economic dislocation from a debt-ceiling crisis precisely serves that purpose – if the Republicans play along. The perfect out: Those crazy tea partyers ruined the recovery! Why would any conservative collaborate with that ploy? November 2012 constitutes the new conservatism’s one chance to restructure government and change the ideological course of the country. Why risk forfeiting that outcome by offering to share ownership of Obama’s wreckage? Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@charleskrauthammer.com.

A request, but no more, for summer modesty EVERY summer when the temperature goes up, people start stripping down. At the risk of sounding like a prude, I find it unseemly. Toddlers look cute in just a pair of shorts. Middle-age men do not. Most women don’t look good in shorts, period. Yes, there are starlets strutting down Sunset Boulevard beautiful in little short-shorts, but they’re the exception. I don’t see them at my local grocery store leaning over the frozen food case. What I see reaching for the ice cream is just way too much. I’m not talking about age. I’m not talking about weight. I’m just asking for modesty. I don’t want to be confronted with body parts best seen only by your doctor. But America is a free country, and imposing any kind of dress code starts us down a very slippery slope. I was hiking in a park with a friend and she told me how happy she was about the law in France prohibiting Islamic full-face veils in public. I was appalled. It’s freedom of religion, I said, and freedom of speech. It’s oppression of women, she replied. How do you know? I asked. At that moment, two young women jogged past us in tiny, stretchy shorts and bikini tops. Nothing was left to the imagination. They were fit and attrac-

COMMENTARY DIANA WAGMAN tive, but I found myself thinking I’d almost rather my teenage daughter wore a burka. One outfit is as extreme as the other. Both get second and third looks. Each conveys an image of the woman wearing it, a supposition that might or might not be true. As for oppression, what sort of response will the girls in bikinis get, especially from men? To be ogled and objectified doesn’t do much for women’s equality. You could argue, as my friend did, neither does a religion that requires women to be completely covered. But in a democratic society, America or France, people should be free to wear whatever they want. Driving in the Fairfax district, I love to watch Orthodox Jewish families walking to temple. The men in their long coats and big hats, the women in tailored suits and wigs, and especially the little boys with curling payos and yarmulkes and the tassels of their prayer shawls flapping. There is a Buddhist temple in my neighborhood, and the monks wear wonderful orange robes and shave their heads, men and women alike. I lived in Utah for seven years, and Mormon “garments,” worn under clothing, cover more skin

than what most people wear in my Trader Joe’s. I would find their nylon jumpsuits oppressive, but it’s none of my business. If we outlaw burkas, then we should ban all manner of religious dress, including nuns’ habits and priests’ collars. And if we’re suppressing that personal expression, where will it end? A 20-year-old college football player got on a plane in San Francisco reportedly wearing his pants so low his whole butt – in tight black briefs, according to one account – showed. I don’t know how he walked to his seat, but it was a fashion statement: He must have thought he looked cool. A flight attendant took exception and asked him to pull up his pants. What happened next is in some dispute, but eventually he was arrested. He missed his flight, but he wasn’t charged. Just days earlier, same airline, an older man, white-haired, got on a flight wearing blue women’s underwear, a matching spaghettistrap, midriff-baring top, a cropped see-through sweater and black thigh highs and high heels. Airline personnel didn’t say a word. Now, it was the white-haired man’s right to look ridiculous (up to a point, which no one has said he crossed), but the same right was not extended to the football player. Was it because the football player was black? Was it because he was young? Was it because he looked “gangsta”? The flight at-

line of communication that I found lacking in other programs. There is a tremendous feeling of family – with an equal amount of concern for each child individually. During my quest for care last year, Cheri stayed on the phone with me, addressing concerns proactively on the first day rather than reactively. She gave me her home phone number, cell number and office number, as she did with every parent. Additionally, just in case we had lost them along the way, she sent home the numbers every Friday along with our children’s “project bags.” She assured me that as my son cried when I left, she would hold him and comfort him until he was soothed and ready to begin play for the day. She did just that. I never once felt uncomfortable or uneasy about leaving my prized possession in her and her staff’s care. The price is extremely reasonable and the comfort I felt was priceless. Take my word that there is a place out there that can love your child just as much as you. I could go on for hours about the swim classes, music days, library visits, graduation day,

picture days, field trips and so on, but eventually I would fill the entire newspaper. As a final note, the program is open and welcoming to all denominations.

tendant made a judgment based at least in part on a pair of sagging sweatpants. Isn’t that repression? When does one person’s “expression” become more important than another’s? An 11-year-old was sent home from school for wearing a T-shirt that read “Obama a Terrorist’s Best Friend.” If another kid wore a shirt reading “Obama the Best President Ever,” some might disagree, but who would prevent him from sharing his opinion? At the mall some years ago I passed a young woman wearing a T-shirt bearing a vulgar message about President Bush almost impossible to explain to your 9-year-old. But I absolutely defend her right to wear it. Yes, I wish my across-the-street neighbor would put on a shirt when he stands in his driveway to smoke a cigarette. His sweaty chest hair over man-boobs is a sight I could live without. But then I remind myself: Summer won’t last forever.

Dog park gets put to good use

M

y husband, our pets and I were displaced from our home on June 20. Except for a few days in Chicago (a pre-planned trip), we have been staying at the Residence Inn in Dickson City. There are a lot of people, along with their pets, staying there. I have spent some time drawing maps and giving directions to the Abington Community Dog Park. The importance of the dog park has taken on a whole new meaning, as those who are here for an extended time were thrilled to hear about a

facility where their dogs would be in a protected area. I have heard many great stories about how happy a pet was to finally be able to “run around” instead of always being on lead while walking the grounds around the inn or staying cooped up in the room. We on the Dog Park Committee can be proud of the work that was done to help the community park become a showplace, and I thank you all for letting me be a part of this endeavor.

No matter how you work the numbers, too many people are jobless THE 8.7 percent unemployment rate for the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton metro area offers a mixed message for a regional economy looking for good news. It is indeed a positive sign that our rate of unemployment is lower than the national average of 9.2 percent, but there is little consolation when all of us know at least one person who has lost his or her job in this fragile economy. In analyzing why the national rate remains stubbornly high, two questions must be answered: How do we measure unemployment, and why are major corporations not hiring when they are mostly flush with cash? There were positive signs in March when Pennsylvania added 23,000 jobs. Two months later, we received sobering news that employment dropped by 14,000 jobs. There have been similar anomalies on national unemployment levels. The national economy added an anemic 18,000 jobs in June, yet there are 14 million Americans who remain unemployed.

particularly with regard to taxation and regulation. The fact that the National Labor Relations Board is attempting to prohibit Boeing Corp. from occupying its new multibillion-dollar plant in South Carolina on the grounds that it cannot move jobs from Washington to South Carolina might make companies leery about opening new facilities and thereby employing additional people. A good argument can be made, perhaps, that increases in select taxes are necessary to fund programs that most people believe are necessary, especially when you consider that corporate and individual tax rates are relatively low. This uncertainty over taxes also impacts consumer demand and delays hiring decisions. Finally, health care costs for employers are increasing rapidly and currently represent as much as 25 to 35 percent of the cost of an employee’s salary and benefits. Well-intentioned health care policies often have the unintended consequence of conveying great uncertainty to employers who continue to see heath care costs grow. Try as we might, the American economy can never outfox the business cycle. Eventually, economic circumstances –

We can try to mitigate the recession with various fiscal and monetary policies, but this deep recession seems to be quite resilient. No matter how we calculate unemployment, there are too many Americans out of work.

ere we are again, having yet another national debate based on false premises. This time it’s about the debt limit. What does the Constitution say about the issue? “The Congress shall have power … to borrow money ...” (Article I, Section 8). But, read on. “The validity of the public debt of the United States … shall not be questioned,” according to the 14th Amendment, Section 4. In other words, it is unconstitutional not to raise the debt ceiling or, perhaps more accurately, the debt ceiling is unconstitutional.

The president should, if necessary, invoke the 14th Amendment and pay the bills by executive order. But the premises of this debate are wrong. Budget figures usually combine trust funds with the General Fund. That’s nonsense, since the trust funds are separate and funded independently. Without that distortion, the total of the defense budget,

the cost of war that’s distributed across other departments of government, the portion of interest paid that’s due to prior unfunded military spending and extra-budgetary spending for Iraq and Afghanistan accounts for as much as 54 percent of our spending – a total of $1.45 trillion in 2009. The safety net accounts for about 30 percent. These figures are from “Analytical Per-

spectives” from the 2009 Budget of the United States. Poignantly, the debt limit was created in the effort to raise funds for World War I. It’s one thing to decide as a nation to sacrifice the economic security of our most vulnerable citizens – children, the elderly, the poor, the chronically ill, the unemployed – in order to build nations and empire. It’s quite another to make that decision and pretend the debt is due to the safety net. A trumped-up debt hysteria at a time like this is a lethal fraud. Cutting federal spending in a recession is a national suicidal ideation. Wayne Warner Clarks Green

T

he Congressional Budget Office’s 2011 Long-Term Budget Outlook (released June 22) contains very startling warnings for every American. The CBO found that not only will our job-killing debt eclipse our economy this year, but also that it grew 83.6 percent under President Obama. That means every citizen in this country owes more than $46,000. Washington must not wait to cut spending and lower deficits. I believe we are on track to have the same economic failures as Greece if we continue down this road. The

president’s demands for more borrowing to extend the debt ceiling and more than $1 trillion in new taxes are not the answer. I am shocked that he would even suggest raising taxes in the middle of an economic downturn. The answer is to cut spending. We, as a nation, must make sacrifices and forego our reliance on the various federal programs that eat up so much of our nation’s budget. The alternative is to leave this country worse than we found it and, most unsettling to me, heap so much debt on our children and grandchildren that they will never have a chance to have the lifestyle we did.

was pleased to see that Luzerne County’s Home Rule Transition Committee decided against adding a clause to its advertisement that would have called for releasing to the public the names of applicants for the county manager job. I think it is far too early in the process to release applicants’ names, and doing so might well hinder some of the most qualified candidates from even applying because they would not want their names disclosed. We need to assure the public that the search has been as broad and far-reaching as possible. The transition committee’s role is to advertise the position and short-list those candidates with the best credentials. The committee cannot make the actual selection, because the position will not be filled until the 11 newly elected council members take their seats in January 2012. Releasing the names of applicants before they even have undergone thorough reference checks is not an indication of transparency, but irresponsibility. At the point when the seated council members have had the opportunity to thoroughly review the applicants and create a list of finalists, it might be prudent to release the applicants’ names; but that decision is a long way off. Until then we need to let the process unfold discretely and allow the candidates the privacy they deserve while the transition committee conducts a nationwide search for the best possible manager. No decision pertaining to this new form of government will be as important as the selection of a county manager. If we fail to get this right, the residents of Luzerne County

will be the losers and the change in government will have achieved nothing. The process itself must unfold in a thoughtful, responsible way. Our county’s future depends on it. Elaine Maddon Curry Candidate Luzerne County Council Drums

A

s Luzerne County begins a new future with home rule, an important goal of this new government needs to be building and restoring trust with the residents of this county. A great start should begin with releasing to the public the names of the applicants for county manager. I believe by releasing all the names of these applicants, it will provide full transparency to the public and hopefully prevent any political friends from being hired to this top county post. The benefit of releasing all the names – and not only the finalists’ names – is to prevent any highly qualified candidate from being unnoticed so that some political friend can pass up the truly most qualified person. I do not believe that politics is dead yet in Luzerne County. I do understand the argument for why names should not be released. Some people say that it will prevent highly qualified candidates from applying and it can put their current jobs at risk. This is a valid argument and I respect it; but there also is no way that we can prove that will happen. I believe this important position, which will pay more than $100,000 in annual salary, will still attract many qualified candidates even if they know their names will be made known to the public. The responsibility of county council is to look out for the

residents of Luzerne County, not for the jobs of applicants. I realize that there are people who will have different opinions on this issue. For those who disagree with my stance, please understand that my reasoning for this is solely driven by a desire to prevent any person who is highly qualified for this extremely important position from being passed up for some not-soqualified, political friend. As a member of the Government Study Commission who helped to write this home rule charter, I understand the importance of this county manager position and realize that if we do not hire the most qualified person at the start of this new government, the future success of Luzerne County will take that much longer to achieve. The key of this new home rule government is accountability, and in order for the public to hold county council accountable, the public needs to be able to see everything – which includes the names of applicants for the county manager position.

A 5K benefit run to help Help Line

M

any years ago, Help Line received a call from a single mother who didn’t have the money to pay for her gas bill, which was necessary to heat her home. The problem had persisted over several months, resulting in a fear that if the gas was shut off, the children might have been removed from the home. The bill was more than $1,000, which she just didn’t have. To complicate the mat-

ter, she was convinced that her bill was inaccurate. The gas company had gone to her house to address the concern but could find no error. The diligence of the Help Line staff in coordinating services, working closely with the Commission on Economic Opportunity and in advocating for the young woman resulted in uncovering a billing error and no interruption in service. The young mother became an advocate for Help Line and located employment, working with an organization whose mission was to help others in need. For nearly 40 years, Help Line has assisted people in our community around the clock with needs ranging from locating resources for utility assistance to infant nutrition to care services for the elderly. The vitality of the program has consistently grown, as evidenced by the number of consumer contacts made: 99,775 in the past year. The recently adopted state budget and other funding cuts have placed Help Line in jeopardy. Reduced staffing has resulted in reduced ability to respond to those in need. While the program continues to provide service around the clock, it can no longer provide advocacy to the extent it once did. While we applaud the successful efforts of our local state legislators to partially restore funds that initially had been eliminated in the state budget, Help Line now asks for your help. On Aug. 14, Family Service Association, the parent agency for the Help Line program, will hold the Pauly Friedman 5K Family Walk/Run at Misericordia University. All proceeds from the event are used to support Help Line. Registration for the event begins at 8:30 a.m. at the university’s Anderson Complex, but pre-registration is

strongly encouraged by contacting 823-5144, extension 309. Teams are forming now, so get your friends and your family to support this worthy program. Help Line will continue to be there for your call; please respond to ours. Michael Zimmerman Executive director Family Service Association Wilkes-Barre

‘Juskie’ stood tall in the Heights

T

o all who knew him as “Juskie,” this man had a name: Joseph Kochanski. But he will be remembered as Juskie, the “Godfather of Baseball” (as one of his former players noted on Facebook) in the Heights area of WilkesBarre. He was a man who put the neighborhood children above everything. When Juskie was at the helm, no child in the area, in Little League and “Teeners,” would go a summer without being afforded the opportunity to play “Juskie Ball.” Juskie knew every player’s first and last names, knew their parents and knew where every kid lived. Juskie treated every kid with respect whether it was the all-star or the beginner. If a kid needed a glove, he got him one the next day. Not only was this guy the glue that kept both divisions running smoothly for many years, he also coached some pretty impressive Heights Teeners teams over his tenure. He knew the game and had a great knack of being able to translate his knowledge to the kids he coached. There are very few conversations dealing with Heights baseball and GAR baseball that can start and end without Juskie’s name coming

up somewhere in the conversation. Juskie touched so many lives and will long be remembered and respected by all the kids he served, and by all of his peers as well. Long live “Juskie Ball.” Sheldon Owens Wilkes-Barre

ormer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the one who would deem a bill passed and then carefully look at it afterward to see what was in it. She is the one who advocated that no longer would there be any deficit spending. The shadow government of czars and operatives appointed by Obama without congressional vetting is the scariest. These bureaucrats were placed there to implement Obama’s vision of America, not the electorate’s vision. Obama and his cohorts do not understand free market capitalism, “the goose that laid the golden egg” for America. Cut out stupid programs such as poems in zoos, shrimps walking on treadmills, creating a new foods chart, etc. Budget deficits are the result of growing government and spending money we don’t have on pet projects. The question on taxes: What about the nearly 50 percent of Americans who do not pay any taxes? Obama’s political genius is his ability to say things that will sound good to people who have not followed the issues in any detail, regardless of how obviously fraudulent what he says might be to those who have. Shameless effrontery can be a huge political asset, especially if uninformed voters outnumber those who are informed. Charlotte Hendershot Plains Township

Roller rink slayings show POST OFFICE reach of domestic violence Continued from Page 1E

By KIM HORNER The Dallas Morning News

DALLAS — The most violent and sensational cases with links to domestic violence are hard to miss in the newspaper and on television news. There was Susan Loper, the Frisco, Texas, mom and fitness instructor who was killed in April, allegedly by a former boyfriend who later jumped into the Grand Canyon to escape police. Police were searching for the husband of Maritza Panameno, the Irving, Texas, mother of three whose body was found in the Trinity River the same month. And on Saturday, 35-year-old Tan Do shot and killed his estranged wife, Trini Do, and four other members of her family at a children’s birthday party before taking his own life. For every one of those highprofile killings, there are thousands of family violence assaults, threats and other crimes that no one hears about. The abuse, which may start small, often escalates over time, according to experts. Some victims are afraid to leave their abusers, and reports show that victims can actually face more danger if they try to move on. The operators of women’s shelters say that they are now busier than ever. In addition, those programs are struggling with fewer resources because of government cuts and reduced donations. This summer, The Family Place has had to turn away women trying to escape abuse because its shelter has been full. And Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas reports record demand, with 400 names on a waiting list for counseling. “The statistics are very grim,” said Pat Tosi, chief executive officer of Hope’s Door, a Plano domestic violence program. “People don’t even want to hear about this. They don’t want to hear that it’s all over the place.” The prevalence of domestic violence means that most of us probably know someone who is being abused. “It could be the person checking you out at the grocery store or working at the doctor’s office,” said Derrelynn Perryman, victims’ services coordinator for the Arlington Police Department. The department files reports on more than 3,000 family violence incidents per year, and half of the city’s 14 homicides in 2011 involved family domestic violence. The violence goes on much more than most people realize, said Dallas Police Lt. Diana Watts. Dallas reported more than 13,000 family violence cases in 2010. “Our caseload is high but it stays behind closed doors. It’s not where we can see it,” Watts said. “People are going to jobs every day bruised from the neck down where we can’t see.” More than 40 percent of Texas

shelters do not have enough money to meet the rising needs, according to an annual survey by the National Network to End Domestic Violence in Washington, D.C. Many shelters have cut services and staff because of the economy, according to another recent study by Dallas-based Mary Kay Inc. Meanwhile, victims are staying longer than they have in the past at The Family Place, said Paige Flink, the Dallas agency’s executive director. Those seeking help can’t find jobs or affordable homes, slowing the pipeline from the shelter into housing programs. “It makes it hard to serve as many people because you’re serving them longer,” Flink said. Some attribute increased family violence to the struggling economy. But local shelter officials caution that economic factors alone do not cause someone to be abusive. “Not having money isn’t going to make him beat you; it’s an element to a situation that’s very tough as it is,” Flink said. Much progress on the domestic abuse front has been made the past few decades, with more shelters being opened and more laws passed to protect victims. There also is more public awareness — and at an earlier age. Dating-violence programs are teaching the youngest generation to recognize red flags for abusive behavior early on. Many teens are taught in schools to be careful with people who are possessive or with those who push to get into a serious relationship quickly. But Jan Langbein, executive director of Genesis Women’s Shelter, says she is frustrated that the violence remains high. Langbein said friends can do something about abuse by just checking on one another. She wishes she had done that with her friend Mary Richardson. The University Park woman was murdered in 1999 by her husband, Timothy Patrick Richardson, who strangled and nearly decapitated her. He was sentenced to 60 years in prison. Langbein said she did not know her friend was in danger, and she wonders whether there were any signs she may have missed. “I never said, ‘Mary, are you OK?’ ” Langbein said. People experiencing abuse may not reach out because they do not always see themselves as victims, Flink said. Some blame themselves for the violence. Others may fail to recognize the potential seriousness and consequences. “It either feels very normal or it is minimized,” she said. “Sometimes I think the victim underestimates how bad it could possibly get.”

One is in Sleetmute, a tiny village on the east bank of the Kuskokwim River, 250 miles from Anchorage. “It would leave a big hole,” said Sophie Gregory, the village’s president and fill-in postmaster.

Eskins, who delivers the mail in her Chevy Blazer, said three of the four post offices she collects mail from are on the list for possible closure. She doesn’t know what will happen after her contract to deliver mail is up early next year. Dickerson also might be out of a job. “I’ve thought about getting people to sign a petition to keep it open, but I don’t know if it would do any good,” she said.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Something is always kept when you give, and in today’s case, it’s big. Perhaps it’s only a feeling, but it has weight and impact. You’ll carry it with you for years to come. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Creativity isn’t something you acquire; it’s something you’ve had all along. Like Dorothy’s ruby slippers, you only need to know how to access the magic in order to be transported. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You reduce your expectations and resign yourself to accept what comes. It’s not because you’re pessimistic. It’s because you love the feeling of being pleasantly surprised by life. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are likely to misjudge your own capabilities, underestimating your strength and stamina. When you feel depleted, push through. You’ll get a second wind and accomplish something remarkable. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Loved ones have a way of getting under your skin. Only those who know you best can say the things that bother you most. Luckily for them, you will be in a merciful mood. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is very rare to succeed on the first try, and it may also be unlucky. It’s far better to experience the entire learning curve. Then you’ll be able to re-create your success at will. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Instead of dismissing a new process as “not for you,” think of it as an exercise and dive right in. The only way to make sure you’re not submitting to complacency is to learn something new. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll take a chance and be very proud of yourself at the end of it, whether or not it turns out the way you hoped it would. Your ability to be in the moment is impressive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The one you love may grapple with people you don’t admire. However, you’ll adhere to excellent boundaries. You’ll live and let live. This policy will prove to be truly brilliant. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your ability to pace yourself will prove most useful. You’ll be a rock for someone you love. You can’t tell now how far this gesture will reach. This is one for the decades. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The look you give people matters. It may be a tiny micro-expression, but it reads loud and clear. You make your innermost feelings known, especially to those who have been, up until now, quite unobservant. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be around those who have little self-control, and you’ll realize just how important it is to maintain a certain amount of structure around your daily activities. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 31). You are warm and inviting. You can be this way because you don’t have a fear of getting close to people. August sees you in the mood to learn and love. September and December are high points for your personal and professional development. A leap of faith leads to thrilling adventure in November. Libra and Scorpio people adore you.

Coming full circle, Santa Cruz carousel turns 100 By MICHELLE LOCKE For The Associated Press

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Click, thump, riiiiing! That’s the sound of something you often hear about but rarely see: A carousel rider going for the brass ring. It happens on a daily basis on the Looff Carousel at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, where painted ponies have been spinning for a century, a triumph of tradition in a field dominated by the pursuit of new thrills. “I love it,” says 57-year-old Gerry Watt of Sacramento, who has been visiting the Boardwalk for decades and was “never too cool for the carousel, even in my teens.” The Boardwalk, set beside the long, golden sweep of Santa Cruz Main Beach, goes back to 1865 when a man named John Leibrandt opened a public bathhouse nearby. Others followed and soon Santa Cruz was drawing people who wanted to enjoy the allegedly curative properties of bathing in salt water. Restaurants and curio shops, followed and at the turn of the 20th century, promoter Fred W. Swanton decided to open a casino and boardwalk that would be the “Coney Island of the West.” The carousel made its debut in August 1911, built by Charles I.D. Looff, a master woodcarver from Denmark. Looff had already made his name with his first complete carousel placed at Coney Island in New York. Back then, rides cost a nickel. Today, the carousel, which has been designated a National Historic Landmark, costs $3 a spin. Looff apparently had a puckish sense of humor. The story is that he chose the middle initials “I.D.” after Ellis Island immigration officials told him he had to have a middle name “for his I.D.” You can see that humorous vein in the carousel horses, several of which boast toothy smiles. The horses have real horsehair tails and details ranging from swords to flashing jewels. Some

have items strapped behind the saddles, including a sheep and a pheasant. There are 73 horses — 71jumpers plus two stationary horses that are good for parents with unsteady young riders — as well as two chariots decorated with the heads of rams and cherubs. The big draw of the carousel is

its ring dispenser. Rings were once handed out by “ring boys,” but since 1950, the process has been mechanized. The rings — mostly steel these days except on special occasions when brass-plated ones are used — are dispensed by a long arm that riders on outside horses can reach. You grab a ring, throw it to-

ward the gaping mouth of a large clown painted on a backdrop near the carousel and, if successful, are rewarded by bells and flashing lights. Scoring a hit is a kick, one that often is denied the left-handed Watts, although that doesn’t stop him from rushing to secure an outside horse. “It’s really difficult. There’s something about the trajectory,” he says. The music has a vintage sound, provided for 100 years by a 342pipe Ruth und Sohn band organ built in 1894. In 2007, the Boardwalk acquired a Wurlitzer band organ from the closed Playlandat-the-Beach amusement park in San Francisco, and there is a third small Wurlitzer organ. The carousel has had its moment in the spotlight, being featured in films including “The Lost Boys,” “The King of Love,” and ‘Sudden Impact.” Along with rides that range

from kiddie to fairly thrilling, the Boardwalk has the usual games of chance, arcades and tempting goodies, including deep-fried Twinkies and Oreos. If you’re up for a brief walk, the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf is less than half a mile away, featuring several restaurants and curio shops. A fun choice is the take-away window at The Dolphin at the end of the wharf which serves up a tasty clam chowder in a bread bowl. Fenced holes in the wharf’s planking allows you to get a look at sea lions that may be basking below while you wait for lunch.

By KENDAL WEAVER For The Associated Press

How ancient Rome built its Mediterranean empire “Carthage Must Be Destroyed: The Rise and Fall of an Ancient Civilization” (Penguin Group), by Richard Miles:

By CARL HARTMAN

F

For The Associated Press

or ancient Romans, “Carthage Must Be Destroyed” had to be the wave of the future if they were to become the unrivaled masters of the Mediterranean and the lands on its shores. Look at a map.

Carthage, a colony of seagoing Phoenicians from what is now Lebanon, was strate-

gically on the Mediterranean’s south coast, halfway between its Middle East homeland and the entry to the Atlantic. It was building an empire of its own, subjecting tribes in North Africa, Spain and the big islands of Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. The cry to destroy Carthage was taken up by Cato, one of Rome’s most respected senators. He got into the habit of using the slogan as the last sentence of any speech he made — no matter what he’d been talking about. That disconcerting practice must have helped give Romans a case of the jitters when Hannibal, Carthage’s greatest general, mounted an invasion of Italy, complete with African combat elephants. It went through Spain, southern France and the Alps, up to the gates of Rome. That invasion failed, but a Roman invasion of Carthage succeeded. This is a scholar’s book. Author Richard Miles teaches ancient history at the University of

Sydney, Australia, and writes here about events long past. He has to quote copiously from Greek and Roman historians, some of dubious reliability and little concern with today’s ideas of fairness and entertainment. The victorious Romans got rid of Carthage’s own records, along with temples and other public institutions. The book has color photos of the ruins, made in a suburb of today’s Tunis. Some of the stories are still teasingly attractive. The elephants impressed people. Smaller than the Asian variety, they may still have been able to carry archers, but they sometimes panicked and trampled on their own infantry, an

ancient version of “friendly fire.” The Romans killed some, captured some others and marched them in the triumphal parades that celebrated their victories. Some people marveled that the Carthaginians got the elephants across the broad Rhone River in southern France. Polybius, a Greek who wrote Roman history, may have shared the delusion that elephants couldn’t swim. “...(He) even repeated a story that some of Hannibal’s elephants, panicked by the water, plunged into the river, and crossed to the other side by walking underwater on the riverbed and using their trunks as snorkels,” Miles writes.

••• The victorious Romans got rid of Carthage’s own records, along with temples and other public institutions. The book has color photos of the ruins, made in a suburb of today’s Tunis.

An often light but still poignant side of F. Scott Fitzgerald is evident in this compilation of 19 of his previously published items and ar“A Short Autoticles, writbiography” ten mostly for (Scribner), by F. popular magScott Fitzgerald and James L. W. azines during 1920-1940. West III Edited by Fitzgerald scholar James L.W. West III, the collection is billed as an autobiography because the famed American novelist and short story writer keeps the focus on himself, his views and critiques, his celebrated life and times. The personal essays are frequently funny and fastpaced, particularly during the 1920s when he enjoyed huge literary success and, with his spirited wife, Zelda, came to embody the Jazz Age. But beset by personal problems and a marital breakup as the 1930s ground into the Great Depression, a somber side of Fitzgerald shows through in the later pieces. In a 1936 article for Esquire magazine, “Afternoon of an Author,” Fitzgerald writes of his “growing seclusion ... and the increasing necessity of picking over a well-picked past.” But this is not “The CrackUp,” the collection of Fitzgerald nonfiction published five years after his death in 1940, which West says paints Fitzgerald as “an apologist for the 1920s, a chronicler of remorse and regret, and a student of failure and lost hope.” “A Short Autobiography” is full of lighthearted prose as Fitzgerald employs a variety of unconventional structures — a witty self-interview and a guided tour of a house, for example — along with the serious essays of a memoirist. As West notes, many of these pieces were written for the paycheck — handsome paychecks, too — and at times it’s easy for a reader to tell. But even the self-interview, which Fitzgerald wrote when he was 23 and didn’t see published in his lifetime, contains memorable lines: “My idea is always to reach my generation. The wise writer, I think, writes for the youth of his own generation, the critic of the next and the schoolmasters of ever afterward.” The pieces in “A Short Autobiography” don’t often evoke the lyrically powerful prose of “The Great Gatsby,” Fitzgerald’s iconic American novel. Still, his gift is evident, even in a piece on Princeton University, as he describes entering the campus: “Two tall spires and then suddenly all around you spreads out the loveliest riot of Gothic architecture in America.” Fifteen of these 19 pieces appeared in a 2005 collection, “My Lost City: Personal Essays, 1920-1940,” published by Cambridge University Press and edited by West. This new volume is more accessible to the casual Fitzgerald reader — the hardcover is $25, paperback is $15 and e-book is $9.99, compared with the Cambridge edition’s price tag of more than $100.

If you’ve been to Hickory Run State Park near White Haven but bypassed Boulder Field, where on earth is your sense of adventure? See what the glaciers have wrought as you attempt to keep your balance on this huge expanse of nothing but rocks that’s been designated a National Natural Landmark. Again, sensible shoes are a must.

If you’re not afraid of depths, you’ll enjoy dropping 300 feet in a small metal car while taking the popular Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour at McDade Park in Scranton. On a hot summer day, the ride to see what lies beneath is especially cooling, not to mention educational. You’ll learn about different veins of hard coal, the roles of mule boy and nipper, monkey vein and the dead chute as well as all the heroic efforts involved in deep mining’s history. Rides are scheduled on demand daily between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Call 1-800-238-7245 or 570-963-6463 for details.

Now does this say postcard or what? The Twin Bridges in Fishing Creek Township, Columbia County, over Huntington Creek, were constructed in 1884 for $720 and named after John Paden, who operated a nearby sawmill. The dynamic duo, one of which is shown here, can claim bragging rights as the only twin covered bridges in the United States.

ABOVE: The Equestrian Center at the golfers’ paradise called Eagle Rock Resort in Hazle Township is a most picturesque place to ride horses, or enjoy a ride powered by horses. From 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. most days, Country Carriage Service Inc. offers trail rides and pony rides, and, on Saturday and Sunday nights, horse-drawn carriage rides are a happy bonus. Reservations are a must. Call (570) 384-4899 for exact times, options and prices.

The David Wenzel Treehouse at Scranton’s Nay Aug Park provides the perfect lookout point, as the first-of-its-kind construction in Pennsylvania, completed by Forever Young Treehouses, sits a spectacular 150 feet above the Nay Aug Gorge. While in the park area, little ones are sure to enjoy the inexpensive waterslides that drop into a large, public pool.
