The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Metropolitan Statistical Area rose to 9.2 percent in June from 8.7 percent in May, according to the state’s Department of Labor and Industry. That was the highest rate in Pennsylvania, the largest gain of any MSA in the state and places the region on par with the national unemployment rate. “It’s not good and it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better,” said Andrew Berger of WilkesBarre. “You keep hearing people saying the recession is ending, but those people obviously have jobs.” Berger lost his warehouse job in October and said he sees little hope he’ll be employed when October rolls around. Steven Zellers, an industry and business analyst with the Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, said there are certainly some numbers of concern, but noted there are bright spots, too, in the monthly report. For Luzerne County, Zellers noted that the unemployment rate dropped by nine-tenths of a percent from June 2010, to 9.2

Rep. Giffords makes emotional return By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON — Crisis legislation to yank the nation past the threat of a historic financial default sped through the House Monday night, breaking weeks of deadlock. The rare moment of cooperation turned celebratory when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords strode in for the first time since she was shot in the head nearly seven months ago. The vote was 269-161, a scant day ahead of the deadline for action. But all eyes were on Giffords, who drew thunderous applause as she walked into the House chamber unan-

Still, Republican lawmakers supported the compromise, 174-66, while Democrats split, 9595 “The legislation will solve this debt crisis and help get the American people back to work,” Boehner said at a news conference a few hours before the vote.

Area man accused of bilking investors

Authorities in Alabama say Anthony Klatch II conspired in securities fraud. By MARK GUYDISH

MOBILE, ALA. – Sugarloaf Township native Anthony Klatch II was indicted by an Alabama federal grand jury for allegedly bilking investors of more than $2.3 million, and was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals. According to paperwork filed in the U.S. District Courts of both the Middle District of Florida and Southern District of Alabama, Klatch was indicted in Alabama July 28, arrested and committed to Klatch temporary detention July 29 in Florida, and is scheduled for a full detention hearing today. The paperwork also shows Klatch was appointed a public defender because he could not afford an attorney, and he was granted immediate medical attention for an undisclosed condition. The indictment handed down in Alabama alleges Klatch conspired with Timothy Sullivan and others in committing securities fraud. According to the indictment: • In January 2009, Klatch and Sullivan created the TASK Capital Partners LP hedge fund, with Klatch as senior managing director and chief investment officer. The duo then solicited individuals to invest in the fund. • Fund prospectuses “contained material misrepresentations and material misleading omissions,” including claiming the fund was operational since 1997, and a false claim that a professor of finance at the University of Chicago sat on the board of directors. • From April through October 2009, eight investors sank a bit more than $2.3 million into the hedge fund. Four of them lived in Alabama, with one of those putting $1.4 million into the TASK fund. Klatch and Sullivan each invested $1 in TASK. • By December 2009, Klatch and Sullivan had invested only about 60 percent of the money, losing “the entire amount.” The indictment cites two investments, one with AIG that lost $3,788 in15 minutes, and another in Google that lost $25,750 in 25 minutes. • By January 2010, all eight investors had been told “their entire investment had been lost in a single trade,” which was not true. • About 40 percent of the money given to TASK was used for non-investment purposes, with $180,592 ending up “in the personal bank account” of Klatch. Small amounts were used in attempts “to pay off the angry investors.” The indictment calls for Klatch to forfeit, upon conviction, $2.3 million in cash, two luxury Land Rover vehicles purchased in 2010 and 2011 for a combined price of $148,580, a Ferrari convertible purchased for $192,000 in 2010, an Aston Martin roadster purchased for $124,300 in 2009, a BMW M3 convertible purchased for $56,000 in 2009, a town home in Center Valley, Pa., purchased in 2007 for $255,550, and a Sea Ray Boat purchased in 2010, no value given.

Dallas OKs support contract The school board also hired two permanent elementary teachers. By SARAH HITE

DALLAS TWP. – The Dallas School Board approved a support staff contract, hired two permanent elementary teachers and reflected on the new high school building’s progress at its meeting Monday. The support staff contract was approved pending review by Solicitor Benjamin Jones III, but Superintendent Frank Galicki said the negotiations began when the contract ran out on July 1 and both parties

found the resolution agreeable. All positions include eight levels of hourly wage rates. Custodians received raises between 18 and 25 cents, depending on the level. Maintenance received anywhere from 21 to 27 cents, and secretary/ clerical workers had between 18 and 24 cents added to the positions’ hourly rates. The contract will remain in tact until June 30, 2016. Leslie Plank was hired as a fifth-grade Dallas Elementary School teacher with a salary of $37,396. Plank will replace Angel Bestwick, who took a leave of absence last year and resigned for the 2011-12 school year. Ashley Barchik was appoint-

ed as the Dallas and Wycallis elementary art teacher for the 2011-12 year, replacing Erin Lypka, with a starting salary of $35,295. The board also hired a parttime Spanish teacher at the high school, Sara Rosenburg, at a rate of $28.35 per hour for three hours a day. Kristin Hricko was hired as a long-term substitute school psychologist with a prorated salary of $35,000 for the period of Sept. 8 through Dec. 30, and Diana Burns-Snyder was hired as a long-term substitute elementary teacher with a prorated salary of $45,189 from Sept, 8, 2011, through Jan. 27, 2012.

Kingston will join compost commission Exeter and West Wyoming boroughs and Jackson Township also in deal. By B. GARRET ROGAN Times Leader Correspondent

KINGSTON -- The borough officially entered into an intergovernmental cooperation agreement with several other west side communities to form the West Side Compost Commission. Kingston will now join with Exeter, Jackson Township and West Wyoming to purchase and share a tub grinder that will turn yard debris into mulch. The purchase of the $431,500 piece of equipment will be completely funded by a grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection. The funding will come to the cooperating municipalities in the form of reimbursement. The respective municipalities will have to fund the initial purchase. They also each contribute roughly $3,000 for preventative maintenance

and around $4,000 each for Exeter grant writer Karen Szwast. Exeter Borough was the lead applicant for the project. Exeter also has a truck with the capability to transport the grinder to and from each municipality on a monthly basis. In entering into the agreement, Kingston is looking to add to its legacy of regional cooperation. The borough currently shares emergency fire and medical services with neighboring Forty Fort. It also shares police services with Pringle. In other business, Municipal Administrator Paul Keating informed the council that the repair of a malfunctioning roof-mounted air conditioner on the Hoyt Library will cost between $15,000 and $20,000. Council member Jack Schumacher asked whether other neighboring communities would help pay for the repair as many of their residents also frequent the library. Keating said that, ideally, other community members would contribute, but the responsibility ultimately falls to

Kingston as the owner of the building. Kingston also provides the library with $90,000 each year in operating costs. Also during Monday’s meeting, Keating reported that, like most area communities, Kingston has experienced sporadic flooding issues due to frequent heavy rainfall. The borough plans to spend roughly $28,000 to repair a pumping station located at the corner of Mercer Avenue and Poplar Street. The borough spent “well over $100,000” repairing the station in 2003. The repairs needed now will work to further modernize the 40-yearold pumps, but Keating said he fears the problems may reoccur with the outdated equipment. He suggested staggering the total replacement of the pumps over the next several years in order to adequately address the flooding issues and save on costs.

Ostrowski said there currently is no ordinance requiring such connection as on-site systems are prevalent in the township.

Ostrowski did elaborate that township residents could also “at their will,” and expense, connect to the system, provided they receive prior approval from Nuangola.

LOCAL Developer protests fines by city

Company VP calls Murray complex fees a “miscommunication.” By BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – The city has been fining the Murray complex developer $1,000 a day since July 12, but a Daniel Siniawa and Associates executive said there’s been a “miscommunication.” Robert Sakoski, company vice president, said Monday he will request a meeting with Mayor Tom Leighton and other city officials to discuss the fines being levied against Siniawa’s property near Hazle Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue. According to city Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin, Siniawa, the Lackawanna County developer, has been fined for violation of section 7-25 of the City Code of Ordinances. The violation letter alleges “the site continues to be a nuisance property and in its current condition deemed unsafe and has been declared dangerous and unsafe.” “To date, the daily fines amount to a total of $21,000 between July 12 and

Aug. 1 and are still running until the building code office certifies that the violations have been abated,” McLaughlin said. Sakoski said a fence has been erected around the demolition debris on half of the site. He said part of the complex is for sale. “We feel that by putting the fence up, we made the property safe,” Sakoski said. “People can’t casually walk in there now.” Siniawa is removing the debris, but it’s been a slow process, he said. “I’m sure that hasn’t been moving as fast as the city would like,” Sakoski said. “But we are removing the debris and we are clearing the site.” He said the other side of the complex – once occupied by the former Murray’s Inn – may still be developed. “But in these difficult economic times, developing that site might not be possible, and we may end up considering taking that building down as well,” Sakoski said. McLaughlin said the city will meet with Sakoski to discuss the current status and future of the site. He said the

property owners should appeal the fines to the city’s board of appeals -- standard procedure for every property owner in the city who is fined by the building inspector’s office. In September 2009, after a fire at the now-demolished building, Siniawa said he planned to continue to develop the adjacent building on the site that formerly housed Murray’s Inn. The estimated

$20 million project would include 55 loft-style condominiums, restaurants and 50,000-60,000 square feet of retail space. The property is divided by the extension of Ross Street.

Gazenski said he was curious how TriState conducted its inspection because the company had not requested access to the Sterling from individuals who possess keys to the property.

Harry Hamilton speaks to a gathering of supporters at the Luzerne County Courthouse on Monday announcing he was not running for Luzerne County judge.

Hamilton urges judge diversity The local lawyer declines to run for the bench but offers a message.


WILKES-BARRE – After announcing that he will not run for a county judgeship this fall, attorney Harry Hamilton on Monday called upon Luzerne County leadership to take steps to increase diversity in its court system. “We’re tired that people of color are more represented in terms of being in orange (prison uniforms) and in chains than they are in the work force in our county courthouse. That’s a horrifying shame and we should do something about it,” Hamilton said. Hamilton, a former pro football player in the NFL, said he was thankful for the “outpouring of support” he has received since announcing in mid-July that he was considering a run as an independent for one of six open judgeships that was sparked by a lack of minority court officials. “For reasons that are both personal

and professional, I made the heartbreaking decision not to circulate petitions and come before you today, the filing deadline for candidacy, to say, ‘Not this time, not this time,’ ” Hamilton told the media and a small group of supporters gathered in the county courthouse rotunda for his press conference. When he went public with news of his possible run for office, Hamilton said his goal was to bring attention to the issue of diversity in the courts. “I believe with the (media) coverage last time around, we got the conversation started. … Let’s keep the conversation going because, through dialogue, we can make a difference,” he said. Hamilton said he learned of only two court-related employees who are people of color – a recently hired assistant district attorney and a staffer of Judge Joe Cosgrove. He said he heard of the hire of one African American in 1998, but he believes an atmosphere of non-acceptance caused the person to resign soon after. Hamilton said Linda Trompetter, director of the Luzerne County Diversity Commission, has told him that no repre-

sentative of the county courts has ever attended a commission meeting. “We can change that by asking the president judge to send someone to the meeting. It’s a small step in a direction for change. And I do know something about our president judge. He would receive that letter and he would act on it,” Hamilton said, referring to Court of Common Pleas Judge Thomas Burke, who could not be reached for comment. Pointing to Pennsylvania’s Interbranch Commission on Race, Gender and Ethnic Fairness, which was formed after a 1999 state Supreme Court study on racial and gender bias in the justice system, Hamilton suggested the formation of a similar commission for Luzerne County’s courts. Hamilton said his current employment was one factor in his decision not to run for judge because, as a government employee, he cannot legally run for elected office without resigning that position. He declined to elaborate on what the position is, but he did say the law does allow for his appointment to a judgeship if one became available.

Facebook used to report alleged assault Police say woman’s husband would not let her use phone to get help. By EDWARD LEWIS

SALEM TWP. – A woman sought help from a friend on Facebook when her husband refused to let her use a telephone after he allegedly injured a 4year-old boy with a knife. Township police alleged Joel Howard Hosler, 55, of Third Lane, cut the boy’s finger when the boy reached for a piece

of meat off his dinner plate. Hosler was arraigned Sunday by District Judge Martin Kane in Wilkes-Barre on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: Police received information from Luzerne County 911 at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday that a woman was reporting an assault involving a toddler at Hosler’s residence. Police learned the woman was report-

ing information given to her from Hosler’s wife, Mary Hosler, on Facebook. Mary Hosler told her friend that Hosler wouldn’t let her call for help after he allegedly cut the boy’s finger with a knife. Police went to the house, where Hosler blocked the screen door, preventing the boy from going outside. Police said in the complaint that the boy had a small laceration on his hand. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Wednesday before District Judge John Hasay in Shickshinny.

Six Independent and third-party contenders filed nomination paperwork to enter the Luzerne County Council race by Monday’s deadline. Voters who are not registered Democrats or Republicans had until Monday to present 995 nomination signatures to get on the Nov. 8 general election ballot. The additional candidates: American Independent Party member Charles Hatchko, Independents Jeremy Packard and Rick Williams and Libertarians Tim Mullen, Betsy Summers and Brian Bergman. The newcomers bring the number of council candidates to 28. They will appear on the ballot with 11 Democrats and 11 Republicans who won the May primary. Voters will get to choose 11 candidates from any political party to oversee the county’s historic switch to a new home rule government in January. Objections to the six new candidates’ nomination papers must be filed by Aug. 8. HARRISBURG

Police investigating fire

Police are investigating a fire Monday at 104 Madison St. that appears to have been intentionally set. Firefighters and police responded to Apartment 3 at that address at 7:03 p.m. for a report that someone entered the property and started clothes on fire in a closet, said Assistant Fire Chief Edward Snarski. Snarski said tenants tried to put out the fire with extinguishers and firefighters completed the job. No one was injured in the incident.

No copays for birth control


Decision expands women’s preventive care By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press


Cool way to beat the heat

Nine-year old Mia Rincon, of Des Moines, Iowa, cools off Monday under a sprinkler in a wading pool in Des Moines, Iowa. Heat indexes were expected to remain over 100 degrees through the night Monday and today.

WASHINGTON — Health insurance plans must cover birth control as preventive care for women, with no copays, the Obama administration said Monday in a decision with far-reaching implications for health care as well as social mores. The requirement is part of a broad expansion of coverage for women’s preventive care under President Barack Obama’s health care law. Also to be covered without copays are breast pumps for nursing mothers, an annual “wellwoman” physical, screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer and for diabetes during pregnancy, domestic violence counseling and other services.

“These historic guidelines are based on science and existing (medical) literature and will help ensure women get the preventive health benefits they need,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The new requirements will take effect Jan. 1, 2013, in most cases. Tens of millions of women are expected to gain coverage initially, and that number is likely to grow with time. At first, some plans may be exempt due to a complex provision of the health care law known as the “grandfather” clause. But those even plans could face pressure from their members to include the new benefit. Sebelius acted after a near-unanimous recommendation last month from a panel of experts convened by the pres-

tigious Institute of Medicine, which advises the government. Panel chairwoman Linda Rosenstock, dean of public health at the University of California, Los Angeles, said that prevention of unintended pregnancies is essential for the psychological, emotional and physical health of women. As recently as the 1990s, many plans didn’t even cover birth control. Protests, court cases, and new state laws led to dramatic changes. Today, almost all plans cover prescription contraceptives — with varying copays. Medicaid, the health care program for low-income people, also covers contraceptives. In a nod to social and religious conservatives, the rules issued Monday by Sebelius include a provision that would al-

low religious institutions to opt out of offering birth control coverage. However, many conservatives are supporting legislation by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, RNeb., that would codify a range of exceptions to the new health care law on religious and conscience grounds.

Anthony gets probation

Anthony, whose whereabouts C asey have been a secret since her dra-

matic murder acquittal last month, may have to report to a probation officer in central Florida this week under a judge’s order Monday in another case against her. The Orlando judge who sentenced Anthony last year for fraudulent check writing signed a “corrected” version of Anthony’s probation order that made clear she was supposed to start the one-year term after her release from jail, not while she was detained waiting for her murder trial. Her attorneys are likely to challenge the revised order. One of them, Cheney Mason, didn’t immediately return a phone call for comment, and another attorney, Jose Baez, didn’t immediately respond to an email.

The Pennsylvania system would put more emphasis on student performance. By MARC LEVY Associated Press


PM cautions politicians Norway’s prime minister on Monday called on political leaders to show restraint in their public speech as the country emerges from mourning the 77 victims of a bombing and youth camp massacre by an anti-Muslim extremist. Jens Stoltenberg didn’t single out anyone but seemed to be referring to sometimes harsh discussions on immigration when he told Parliament that the July 22 attacks gave reason to reflect on “what we have thought, said and written.” “We all have something to learn from the tragedy,” he told lawmakers at a ceremony honoring the victims. “We can all have a need to say ’I was wrong,’ and be respected for it.” SAN ANGELO, TEXAS

Polygamist files motion Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs made a third attempt Monday to remove the Texas judge overseeing his child sex assault case — this time based on the claim that God himself demands a change. The head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints filed a motion purporting to quote God as saying state District Judge Barbara Walther should “step away from this abuse of power against a religious and pure faith in the Lord.” After a short recess, Walther ruled the trial would continue under new Texas Supreme Court rules that went into effect Monday. They no longer require an immediate hearing to recuse a judge after evidence in a case has been heard. A hearing will eventually be held on Jeffs’ motion, but it’s unclear when. LONDON, ENGLAND

Families give up bid Families of victims of the 2005 London transit bombings on Monday abandoned a legal bid to force the government to hold a public inquiry into the terrorist attack that killed 52 people. A coroner’s inquest that ended in May thoroughly investigated the role of the emergency services and the MI5 spy agency, with the identified failures being addressed by the relevant agencies, said Clifford Tibber, a lawyer representing 25 victims’ families. “Against that background our clients recognize that any inquiry into those matters ... would cause further unnecessary distress to the bereaved families, those that survived and the individual members of the emergency services who attended the scenes,” he said. Some of the victims’ relatives say they still have unanswered questions.

Prosecutors to seek death in ‘Grim Sleeper’ trial Man accused of serial killings of prostitutes and other women in L.A. By THOMAS WATKINS Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors said Monday they will seek the death penalty against a man accused of the “Grim Sleeper” serial killings of prostitutes and other women who were shot, strangled or both over several decades in Los Angeles. The announcement came as capital punishment is coming under increasing fire in California for lengthy delays in executions and for the expenses involved in winning cases, fighting appeals and keeping inmates on death row.

Deputy District Attorney Beth Silverman told a court her office will ask a jury for the state’s harshest sentence if 58-year-old Lonnie Franklin Jr. is convicted. Franklin Franklin has pleaded not guilty to the murders of 10 women and one count of attempted murder. Most of the victims linked to the “Grim Sleeper” were found in alleyways within a few miles of Franklin’s home south of downtown Los Angeles. Those victims were killed after some kind of sexual contact. The killings got their name because of a long gap between some of the deaths,

which began in the 1980s and extended into the 2000s. Franklin, a mechanic, was arrested in July 2010 and indicted. Police have also been investigating him in connection with other murders. Prosecutors were granted the right to take a voice sample from Franklin. Outside court, they said they want to compare it to the voice heard on two 911 calls. Detective Dennis Kilcoyne spoke to a group of relatives of victims at the courthouse and said the death penalty is “almost a non-issue” in California because it takes so long for convicts to be executed. “In 20 to 25 years, when it comes up, many of us won’t be on this planet anymore,” he said.

Syrian troops attack city for 2nd day in row Syria fears nightly Ramadan prayer sessions may turn into massive protests. By ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

Anti-government protesters in the Syrian city of Hama set up barricades and took up sticks and stones to defend themselves Monday after one of the bloodiest days so far in the regime’s campaign to quell an uprising now in its fifth month. The protesters vowed not to allow a repeat of 1982, when thousands of people were killed in Hama after President Bashar Assad’s father ordered a massacre. As evening fell, residents said Syrian tanks resumed intense shelling of the restive city and troops fired machine guns at worshippers about to head to mosques for special nighttime prayers on the first

day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Residents had just broken their daily dawn-to-dusk fast and the shelling appeared aimed at preventing the mosque gatherings, fearing they would trigger large anti-government protests. It was the second day of shelling of Hama and other cities. In attacks earlier in the day, four people were killed in Hama and two more were killed in other parts of the country, residents and rights groups said. “It’s a crime! Where is the world? Why doesn’t anyone see?” cried one distraught resident through the phone, the sound of gunfire heard clearly in the background. The current crackdown appears aimed at preventing protests from swelling during Ramadan. Muslims throng mosques during Ramadan for the special nightly prayers after breaking their daytime

fast. The gatherings could then turn into large protests throughout the country. Sunday’s violence left 74 people dead throughout the country, 55 of them from Hama and neighboring villages, according to a statement issued by six Syrian rights

groups. The attacks drew harsh rebukes from the U.S. and Europe, which expanded its sanctions against Syria, imposing asset freezes and travel bans against five more military and government officials Monday.

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s state schools agency is developing a teacher-evaluation system that puts more emphasis on how students perform on standardized tests and plans this month to ask school districts to volunteer for a pilot program beginning this fall, a spokesman said Monday. Department of Education spokesman Tim Eller said results of the pilot program would not Some be used for actual evaluations schools are in the 2011-12 already school year, but rather to deter- asking to mine whether participathe system can te. work. Some schools are already asking to participate, and state officials believe that school administrators, as well as teachers, believe that the concept is worth exploring, Eller said. “I’m not saying they agree on the exact mechanics of how it’s been proposed, but they agree it’s something that needs to be worked at to come up with the best system,” Eller said. State law currently precludes student performance from being used to evaluate teachers. But basing the evaluations of Pennsylvania’s roughly 130,000 teachers on the standardized test scores of students is a major priority of Gov. Tom Corbett in a broader effort to improve the state’s public schools. President Barack Obama also supports the use of student performance in teacher evaluations. However, critics of the concept say no one has developed a scientific way of using student achievement to identify the best teachers. Eller said student performance on two different standardized test systems — the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment and the Pennsylvania Value-Added Assessment System — will determine half of the scoring in the teacher-evaluation pilot. The PSSA is designed to track a student’s learning growth from year to year, while the PVAAS is designed to track it from the beginning of the year to the end, Eller said. The pilot would leave the other half of the scoring to the district, taking into account the measurements that local administrators view as being important as well as a principal’s survey of a teacher’s performance on things like lesson planning and classroom interaction, Eller said.








Civil records gets computers

The equipment contract was County files can be made awarded to the lowest bidder, Bobavailable online once software bouine said, and the office paid programs are installed. $10,289 for the upgrade. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County’s civil records office expects to have its files available online by the end of his month, thanks to 22 recently purchased computers. Deputy Prothonotary Art Bobbouine said Monday that the computers were delivered last Wednesday and five new monitors arrived Monday. Files can be made available online once software programs are installed. The equipment was purchased to replace computers that were several years old and could not handle the office’s new programs and large volume of files, Bobbouine said. The purchase was made through the office’s “automated fund,” which consists of proceeds from fees paid by office users.

“It was cheaper to replace them all instead of just doing a few,” Bobbouine said. “We would have to replace them all eventually anyway.” Bobbouine said the county’s information technology department will install the office’s programs onto the computers over the next few days, and he hopes the work will be done by the end of the week. The next step, Bobbouine said, is for GovPay, an electronic invoicing system, to be installed so that users can pay per page to look up and retrieve documents from their home or office computers. Bobbouine said the online system also will reduce the work burden on office employees, two in particular, who are tasked most of the work day with making copies and mailing them out. “It’ll cut down on postage, copy paper … those little things add up,” Bobbouine said. The deputy prothonotary said

that by the end of the year the office hopes to have the entire electronic filing – or e-filing – system up and running, which will allow attorneys to file documents online without having to go into the office. Bobbouine said the office is modeling its system after the civil records offices in Montgomery and Bucks counties, which have helped the Luzerne County office extensively. “They help us because they’ve already gone through trial and error and can tell us what to do and what not to do,” Bobbouine said. “They have been really good working with us.” Last summer, county commissioners voted to pay a Bensalembased company, Paperless Solutions, $132,750 for an e-filing system,inadditionto$20,750peryear for maintenance. Those expenses, too, would be funded by the office automation account, which the state set up in 1998 to allow some county offices to use a special service fee to fund computerization.

Sharkey expected to report to jail By EDWARD LEWIS

Former Luzerne County Court Administrator William Sharkey was scheduled to report to a federal prison Monday to begin serving his 10-month sentence for stealing more than $70,000 in seized illegal gambling proceeds earmarked for use by law enforcement. The federal Bureau of Prisons won’t publicly disclose the location until Sharkey, 60, of West Hazleton, arrives. Sharkey was not listed on the bureau of prison’s website. He was scheduled to surrender by 2 p.m., according to federal court records. His lawyer, Bruce Miller, said he

had not spoken to Sharkey in a few weeks and had no idea what facility Sharkey would be housed in. Sharkey was Sharkey sentenced by U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik on June 8 to 10 months in a federal prison on charges he stole money seized from illegal gambling operations by agents with the state Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. The money was supposed to go to a special fund for the purchase of equipment for law enforcement agencies. Sharkey obtained forfeiture orders from a Luzerne County judge but failed to file signed forfeiture orders in court, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Federal prosecutors claimed

Sharkey misapplied the funds for his own benefit instead of depositing the money with the county Treasurer’s Office. The federal investigation of Sharkey began when the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office detected financial wrongdoing involving gambling proceeds. Sharkey was charged on Feb. 3, 2009 with theft and criminal forfeiture. He pleaded guilty to the charges Feb. 17, 2009. Prior to being charged, Sharkey was on paid medical leave for five months when federal agents executed search warrants at the court administrator’s office. Sharkey was hired for the court management job in 1997 after 23 years in other county positions. His annual salary was $97,050 when he was fired from county employment on Feb. 24, 2009.


The former Luzerne County official was sentenced to 10 months for taking $70,000.

Keep it natural at Moon Lake


AKING MOON Lake Park successful won’t require a dramatic makeover of the place, because it already has what many people want in a recreational spot – a natural beauty and corresponding ability to calm the soul. Planners, who last week solicited public input on the Luzerne Countyowned park, would be wise to model future activities around the three Ws: woodlands, wildlife and water. Granted, that’s not the sort of high-tech brainstorming coveted in boardrooms at Six Flags Entertainment or Sony, but it certainly suits this site. And if properly executed, it can boost Moon Lake’s ability to be self-supporting. Serenity can be hard to come by these days, and Americans appear ever more willing to pay for it. Consider the popularity of national park passes and ecotours. Or children’s back-to-nature camps. If drawing people, and their dollars, is what Luzerne County’s commissioners aim to accomplish at this underappreciated, 650-acre refuge in Plymouth Township, then do it with minimal disruptions to the landscape. The commissioners recently hired a firm to prepare a park master plan – something required to vie for and snag government grants. About 40 area residents attended Thursday’s meeting, a sort of spit-balling session to dream up potential park uses beyond the obvious: fishing. A second session to hash over costs and other factors will be scheduled later.

Of course, any Moon Lake Park blueprint should call for restoring access to the swimming pool and campground, summertime crowd pleasers that have been curtailed for the past two years because of the county’s budget troubles. Keep out the shooting range. While one might be warranted in the area, the vast majority of Americans who traipse outdoors these days do so with a camera. Cater to the shutterbugs by booking photography camps and/or lessons, identifying or creating trails that take people past the park’s most panoramic spots and providing nesting boxes for waterfowl and other birds. Restore the nature center and amplify its environmental education activities. Consider adding a few cabins for overnight retreats. Rent the lakeside house, if its condition warrants, to honeymooners or others. Boost the opportunities for mountain biking and kayaking by, among other things, supplying rental equipment. Install horseshoe pits and bocce ball courts. For the adults, build a modest amphitheater at which bluegrass and other minimally amplified acts could perform. For the kids, provide adventure with rock climbing walls, zip lines and perhaps a ropes course. In short, allow Moon Lake to continue to be an outdoor escape – the place where people’s blood pressure falls and their spirits rise.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “It isn’t the greatest deal in the world, but it shows how much we’ve changed the terms of the debate in this town.” House Speaker John Boehner The top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives assessed the situation early this week after President Barack Obama and congressional leaders announced a historic agreement on emergency legislation to avert the nation’s first-ever financial default.


Drop the juggling acts and really balance those budgets A FEW words about the push for a national “balanced budget” amendment: Psst, it’s a joke, pass it on … Not that I’m against a balanced budget. Far from it. I’ve been a proponent of curbing deficit spending and reducing the national debt since Ronald Reagan decided to set deficit records. I’m no Washington “expert” and won’t pretend to speak with authority on the machinations of the world’s biggest (and currently most dysfunctional) sausage grinder. But I’ve spent 17 years covering local municipalities and school districts that, by law, must have “balanced budgets” every year. And I can tell you from experience: Mandate a balanced budget and you end up with juggled books. If mandating a balanced budget really works, how did Luzerne County end up with a nearly half-a-billion-dollar debt that causes annual budget trauma? How did the county’s 11 school districts amass a combined debt of nearly $371 million? How did so many of our municipalities end up on the brink of bankruptcy? After all, each of these entities must, by law, pass annual “balanced budgets.” Part of the fiscal woes stem from the severe economic downturn. But most come from a simple fact: These local governments borrowed money, lots of it, and then bor-



MERICANS cringe each time the U.S. Postal Service says it must economize, and this time it could really hurt. The agency’s $8.5 billion deficit will force it to study whether to close 3,700 of its 32,000 post offices. While the study must examine the kinds of communities served by the post offices and assess the impact on the poor, the elderly and others with limited mobility, there’s a chance that some of the

closures will lead to more, not less, convenience for customers. That’s because the Postal Service will expand its “Village Post Office” concept, which puts mail products and services in private retail stores. About 70,000 thirdparty retailers are already “approved postal providers” and account for more than 35 percent of the Postal Service’s retail revenue. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

COMMENTARY rowed more. They kept presenting “balanced budgets” by calculating the debt payments into those annual budgets; but looking at the single-year budgets told you nothing of the real financial underpinnings (or lack thereof). Local and state governments forced to keep balanced budgets kept figuring ways to borrow more and more money before the first loans were repaid. Here’s a purely hypothetical scenario: Let’s say Luzerne County needs $50 million quickly. The county borrows the amount over 20 years and comfortably works out debt payments that will keep the impact to a minimum for taxpayers. Five years later, the county needs another $50 million. It borrows the money but structures a balloon payment schedule for the new debt. Interest and payments are low until the old debt is paid off, then climb sharply. You technically keep the budget balanced, even as you’ve doubled debt. A few years later, county officials need another $50 million. They can’t use the balloon payment trick again, so they “refinance” the two older debts while borrowing the new

money, creating a new payment schedule that will last for 30 years. Now we’re $150 million in debt, paying far more in interest on the earlier debt than if we had stuck to the original repayment schedule. But, dang it, we have a “balanced budget!” There are lots of other gimmicks: Underfund pension portfolios (harder under new federal accounting standards); raid pension funds (as Hazleton did in 2006) to pay other costs; create a “municipal authority” or private, nonprofit partner that can borrow money for (and even from) you, such as CityVest and the $6 million in county money that apparently failed to save the Hotel Sterling in Wilkes-Barre. The list is long, and as a former editor once said to me years ago after we unearthed some legally suspect finagling in Hazleton city budgets, if it’s this bad locally, think how much worse it can be in Washington. Any national balanced budget amendment either will be written with loopholes big enough for the U.S. Navy to sail through or will be quickly perforated with exceptions and work-arounds. The real solution is much tougher; that’s why you don’t hear anyone proposing it. Make the unpopular choices every year. And actually balance the budget.

t was terribly disappointing to read the editorial “Gas firms harmed by blowing hot air” (July 27) in which the newspaper lodged attacks on an industry that’s fueling Pennsylvania’s economic and energy future. While we respect and welcome a healthy public dialogue, this editorial – repeatedly referring to Pennsylvanians who work in our industry and support our communities as “cronies” – marginalizes and erodes these efforts. A recent economic analysis found that in 2010 Pennsylvanians saved $633 million in utility bills because of expanded supplies of natural gas produced in the commonwealth. Further, the natural gas industry is paying hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes. In fact, according to the state Department of Revenue, the natural gas industry paid more than $238 million in taxes during the first three months of 2011. And from 2006, we’ve generated more than $1.1 billion dollars in state tax revenues. More stable and affordable supplies of clean-burning American energy for struggling consumers and small businesses.

Drillers, elected officials sticking it to taxpayers


he final report of the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission is a totally biased document, developed and promoted by the governor and his band of state


representatives who only represent the multibillion-dollar gas drilling corporations. Our state government seemingly has been “bought” by these corporations with “campaign contributions.” A reasonable severance tax would solve the state budget shortfall and reduce school and property taxes for us, the taxpayers. If the drillers really were creating jobs for Pennsylvanians, why is there such a severe shortage of affordable housing in all the areas where drilling occurs? It is because the drillers bring in their own employees to do the work that pays the most. These workers come in, do the work on a rotating schedule and leave. They apparently pay no state income tax in Pennsylvania. Worst yet, many drilling support companies actually have brought in illegal immigrants to take jobs that should be going to state residents. You can bet this propaganda report did not address any of these issues. Come on, people. Wake up and see how the common taxpayers are being harmed by this unholy alliance of politicians and corporations. Power to the people! Ron Ashton Gouldsboro



HOUSE Continued from Page 1A

The Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, was far less effusive. “I’m not happy with it, but I’m proud of some of the accomplishments in it. That’s why I’m voting for it.” So, too, many of the first-term Republicans whose election in 2010 handed the GOP control of the House and set the federal government on a new, more conservative course. “It’s about time that Congress come together and figure out a way to live within our means,” said one of them, Sean Duffy of Wisconsin. “This bill is going to start that process, although it doesn’t go far enough.” The measure would cut federal spending by at least $2.1 trillion over a decade — and possibly considerably more — and would not require tax increases. The U.S. debt limit would rise by at least $2.1 trillion, tiding the Treasury over through the 2012 elections. If legislation is not in place by the end of today, the Treasury will run out of cash needed to pay all its bills. Administration officials say a default would ensue severe damage to the economy.

Beyond merely avoiding disaster, Obama and congressional leaders hoped their extraordinary accord would reassure investors at home and around the world, preserve the United States’ AAA credit rating and begin to slow the growth in America’s soaring debt. After months of suspense, Monday night’s vote was anti-climactic. Not so the moment when Giffords’ presence became known. She greeted some fellow lawmakers who crowded around her and blew kisses to others, beaming the whole while. Her hair was dark and close cropped and she wore glasses — nothing like the image America had of her six months ago when she was shot while greeting constituents outside a supermarket in Tucson. She did not speak with reporters. As for the legislation, after months of wrangling over a deal, there was little time left for lawmakers to decide how to vote. The White House dispatched Vice President Joe Biden to the Capitol to lobby recalcitrant Democrats in both houses. “They expressed all their frustration,” he conceded after a session with lawmakers of his party in the House. He said the deal “has one overwhelming redeeming feature”



— postponing the next debt limit battle until 2013 and putting the current fight behind. “We have to get this out of the way to get to the issue of growing the economy,” he said. Republicans lobbied their rank and file as well, and the results were far more positive for them than a week ago when they were forced to delay a vote on an earlier measure. GOP leaders swiftly drew public pledges of support from some first-termers as well as veteran defense hawks — two areas of concern with the agreement. Rep. C.W. (Bill) Young, chairman of the committee that handles the defense budget, said, “We’re confident that we can make this happen without affecting readiness and without affecting any of our soldiers.” There is little suspense about the outcome for the debt-limit legislation in the Senate today. A member of the Republican leadership in the Senate predicted strong GOP support. “Maybe 35 (of 47) will support it in the end. There will be some who will pull back,” said Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho. Already, the legislation was emerging as an issue in the 2012 presidential campaign. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney announced their opposition, while

race for mayor.” Summers joins the mayoral race that includes two-term incumbent Democrat Tom Leighton and Republican challenger Lisa Cope. Summers submitted her petitions to the Luzerne County Bureau of Elections on Monday afternoon. She also submitted petitions on behalf of John M. DiLiberto Jr., candidate for City Council in District C. DiLiberto will run against Maureen Lavelle, Democrat, and Stephen J. Urban, a Republican, in the November general election. “I wish her luck and look forward to discussing the future issues related to the city over the next several months,” Leighton said when told of Summers’ entrance into the race. “In the meantime, I will continue the hard work that I have been committed to over the last 71⁄2 years to keep the progress and city moving in the right direction.” Cope, 45, of High Street, took a stronger position on Summers’ candidacy. Cope took exception to Summers’ assertion that the race has been too quiet and needs a strong voice to bring the issues to the voters.



Newt Gingrich issued a statement without saying how he would vote. The final legislation reflected the priorities of the two political parties. It would immediately increase the debt limit by $400 billion, with another $500 billion envisioned unless Congress blocks it. At the same time, it would cut more than $900 billion over 10 years from the day-to-day operating budgets of Cabinet agencies. For the budget year that begins Oct. 1, spending would be held $7 billion below current levels. The measure also establishes a 12-member House-Senate committee that will be charged with producing up to $1.5 trillion in additional deficit cuts over a decade. If the panel succeeds, Congress will be required to vote on the recommendations without possibility of changes. If the panel deadlocks or fails to produce at least $1.2 trillion in deficit savings, then spending cuts are to take effect across much of the federal budget. The Pentagon, domestic agencies and farm subsidies would be affected, as would payments to doctors and other Medicare providers. But individual benefits under Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare and programs for veterans and federal retirees would be exempt.

BY THE NUMBERS All 14 metropolitan statistic areas in the state saw increases in unemployment rates from May to June. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre saw the largest in the state.

percent, with 1,200 more people working. In neighboring Lackawanna County, the rate remained the same at 9.1 percent and in Wyoming County, the third county that’s part of the MSA, the rate climbed from 9.2 percent to 9.4 percent. Anthony Liuzzo, director of the master of business administration program at Wilkes University, said he understands that for those who see the latest numbers, there’s a sense of frustration and a belief that local economic conditions are not improving. But he said that in the long term, the figures aren’t that bad. Though the area’s unemployment rate increased a half of a percentage point from May to June, when compared to last June, the rate is actually a half of a percentage point lower. The region’s seasonally adjusted total non-farm jobs decreased 800 to 253,600 in June, but over the past year, that total is up by 1,500. “It’s slow, it’s painful, it’s frustrating,” Liuzzo said. “It’s like coming out of serious surgery. You’re healthier than when you went into surgery, but you’re still in a lot of pain and recovering.” Keystone College business professor Dana Harris said the report looks worse than it really is. “Typically in June, you do see an increase in the unemployment rate,” she said, also noting that when compared year over

year, rather than month to month, the figures look much better. Liuzzo said the fact the rate has now increased two consecutive months after many months of declines is also frustrating, but Zellers said most analysts would agree that the months of May and June are typically going to see increases because schools are out and graduates are entering the labor force, driving the applicant pool up and thereby raising the number of unemployed. So, not only were there 800 fewer jobs in June compared to May, there also were 2,000 more people looking for work, according to the state report. Hampton was laid off when her employer, the Medicine Shoppe in Moscow, closed for business. She said she’s not too worried

right now, other than the fact she and her 2 ½-year-old and her have lost their insurance. She said that in a few months, if she’s still not employed, she may start to panic. “I don’t know if I’m just still in shock, but it’s not setting in yet,” Hampton said. She said the additional people in an already crowded applicant pool aren’t a huge concern, but she’s definitely aware of them. Because unemployment is new to her, she said she feels like she can still pick and choose through help wanted ads for a job that’s right for her. But she admits that as the months go on, she’ll have to start looking at positions she may have ignored in June and July. Harris said, “It’s a slow process. Consumer confidence is not back yet. Employer confidence is not back yet.”

“She was quoted in the paper saying I wasn’t speaking up or campaigning, and that is just ONLINE wrong,” Cope said. “I’ve been To see video, campaigning scan this QR code into your and I’ve been in smartphone or the newspavisit www.tipers and on the radio.” She said Summers has every right to run, but with a third candidate, she feels it will be more difficult to unseat Leighton. “If she really thinks she can win and do a better job than me or Mayor Leighton, that’s fine, but don’t use me as a cop out,” Cope said. Cope said she and her supporters have “done the math” on city voters. She said she has come to the conclusion that there are approximately 6,000 “Leighton lovers” who will vote for the mayor in every election. “In reality, in this city and everywhere else, two parties are recognized – Democrat and Republican,” Cope said. “I think (Summers) will have a hard time. By making it a three-party race, she will hurt my vote total. And if she thinks she can win, well, I think she’s wrong.”

Summers said she has a 10-point plan for the city that includes cutting the mayor’s salary by $10,000 and eventually transitioning the position to part-time status at far less money. “We have a City Council and an administrator,” Summers said. “In most cities the size of WilkesBarre, the mayor is a part-time employee.” Cope said she disagreed with that and said she will work full time and be available around the clock, if elected. Summers said she would evaluate all city positions and make cuts so she could reduce the city’s wage tax from 3 percent to .5 percent. She said she would eliminate pensions for elected officials. “No elected officials should remain on the backs of the taxpayers for life,” Summers said. “That’s why we need new blood on City Council too.” Summers wants to get residents more involved with their neighborhoods to create a “pride in community” atmosphere. She said the city needs to develop a closer relationship with Crime Watch to assure safety of residents. “Right now I see a very antagonistic relationship between the public and City Hall,” she said. “We need to make the city better, safer and cleaner. We need people helping people.”

For people like Berger, the increased competition is anything but good news. “I’m not only competing with the people like me who have been looking for work for months, but now it’s with the kids just out of high school or college willing to accept a job for little pay just to get their foot in the door,” Berger said. “It’s bad and getting worse.” Liuzzo noted the numbers released Monday are for June “so we’re looking in the review mirror and seeing the bumps we’ve already gone over.” He said things may be getting better right now, but we won’t know it for two months. He said he’s confident the region is heading in the right direction. “Over the next few months, things should get better,” Liuzzo said, adding “This getting better is not going to be all of a sudden.”

Summers wants to revamp the city’s building inspection and licensing departments, the garbage collection fees and would call for an audit of all city departments. “These are hard times,” she said. “Everyone is feeling the pinch of this economy.” Summers said the city is in need of a “conduct, accountability and ethics code.” She said everybody in city government needs to learn what ethical behavior is and isn’t. “It seems to be a problem,” Summers said. Summers said there seems to be a fear throughout the city that people are afraid to speak out against the administration. “That feeling needs to be erased,” she said.

day that he would oppose the debt ceiling deal, which nonetheless is expected to pass the Senate by a wide margin and be sent to Obama for his signature just ahead of the government beginning to default on its obligations today. “While I appreciate the hard work and effort that has gone into this deal, it simply does not contain meaningful spending cuts, nor does it put us on a sustainable fiscal path,” Toomey said in a statement Monday. Casey had said Sunday that, “No compromise is perfect and the process that has brought the country to the brink of default is unconscionable. I will vote to move this compromise forward to avoid default, cut government spending and provide some economic certainty.” Marino said he voted for the bill in the House because, “for the first time, we took a step toward giving Americans a government that lives within its means. This is a beginning, not an end. This debt is a problem both parties created over decades and much work remains to put an end to the excesses of Washington.” Marino said he believes the measure will help the economy and job creation because it

doesn’t contain tax increases, reduces the level of federal spending and requires a vote on the balanced budget amendment. While some House Republicans voted against it because they felt the bill didn’t cut spending by enough and didn’t require passage of a balanced budget amendment in exchange for raising the debt ceiling, Marino contended the new Republican majority and large contingent of House GOP freshmen have changed the discussion in Washington. “The voice of the American people is finally being heard in Washington,” he said. “The debate has turned from: ‘How much taxpayer money can we dole out and how many government programs can we create?’ to ‘How much money can we save and what is the best way to balance the budget?’ ” Barletta said that while he didn’t think the debt ceiling deal was perfect, “I cannot let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” He said he recognizes that “for some, this bill doesn’t move far enough, fast enough. But Washington has overspent for generations, and we cannot change Washington’s direction overnight,” pledging that he would “continue to seek additional spending controls so we get to reduce our debt, restore global trust in the American economy, and create stability so business owners can create jobs.”

HOW TO SIGN UP Go to and click on the “register now” button to set up an account and enter data. After data is submitted, a confirmation process is required for each phone number to lock in the information. Participants may add or change information in their accounts – or delete their accounts altogether – at any time. The program is free to the public and funded by 911.

The information will not be available to Luzerne County 911 dispatchers until the Smart911 service goes live around Sept. 1.

it’s expected to grow rapidly. Luzerne County 911 Data/ Technical Support Manager Fred Rosencrans proposed the new program after seeing an online demonstration. Dispatchers typically know only names and addresses when a call comes in, and even that information may not be accurate if it’s from a cell phone, he said. Fifty-seven percent, or 120,047, of the emergency calls made to county 911 last year came from wireless phones, county officials say. 911 callers may be losing consciousness or unable to speak and alert responders to relevant details, such as their allergy to penicillin or aspirin products, Rosencrans said. “This supplemental database will provide important information to the person who will be working on you, and that’s a major benefit,” he said. The data will also be conveyed to other 911 centers throughout the country that participate in Smart 911 if local residents use their cell phones when they’re traveling, he said.

tions, primary and secondary languages, blood types, allergies, medical conditions and medications may be submitted for each person. Photos may also be uploaded, which is encouraged for children. If a child is abducted, the 911 dispatcher could instantly send a photo of the child along with the written Amber Alert message, rather than waiting for police to obtain a photo. Local police would access the photo their cell phones or computers, making it easier to spot the child.

Landline-tax funded The service, purchased from Rave Mobile Safety Inc., will cost $415,000 over five years. The expense is funded by a $1.25 fee on landline phones. This money must be used for improving 911 services and may not cover county general fund operating expenses, according to 911. Information may be entered by visiting and clicking on the “register now” button. Participants must set up a user ID and password. Details about buildings may be entered first, including both residences and offices. Information about a building’s color and siding, gas valves and electrical panels and bedroom locations is requested along with any special instructions on how to find or gain access to the property, such as major cross streets, mile markers, landmarks or security systems. Critical care information about people is entered next, with the option to include all household members tied to a particular phone number. Physical descrip-

Rescue information The list of rescue information is extensive, giving participants the ability to note if any household members are confined to a bed or wheelchair, hard of hearing, reliant on walkers, over 300 pounds or using oxygen tanks. Participants may list descriptions of their vehicles, which could be particularly helpful if they make an emergency call from their cell phones during travel. Pet information includes the animal’s name, species, weight and veterinarian name and number. Emergency contacts may also be designated in case first responders need to contact a family member, friend, neighbor or doctor. People who have restraining orders against someone could note that in case there’s a domestic dispute. It’s up to participants to make sure the information in their accounts is regularly updated and accurate.


velopment for the project, and the Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority and the WilkesBarre Area School District have also approved the project and provided financial support. The redevelopment authority will loan $2.2 million for the work. The school district, county and the city have approved a tax diversion for the project to help pay off the loan.

Oswalt looking to find rhythm before returning for Phillies


It didn’t matter to Roy Oswalt how many hits he surrendered, but the quality of them. So when Kevin Russo doinked a leadoff double and Jesus Montero brought him home by flaring a single in the first inning against him, Oswalt was unfazed. He was too focused on working the strike zone Monday during a minor league rehabilitation start, and working his way back into the already-stacked rotation of the Philadelphia Phillies.

PAUL SOKOLOSKI OPINION Oswalt believes he is ready to shift into gear for that mission, despite some shaky numbers against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. The fact Oswalt allowed seven hits and two walks in six innings to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre batters didn’t bother him as much as the 61 strikes he threw during his 90-pitch outing at PNC Field buoyed his confidence.

NANTICOKE – Through four innings, and after a long rain delay, Kingston/Forty Fort had Williamsport in an unfamiliar position Monday.

A seven-run fifth broke open a tied game as William- WILLIAMSPORT sport eliminated KFF with an 8-3 victory in the state KINGSTON/ semifinals at the FORTY FORT Nanticoke Little League field. Williamsport, the Section 3 and District 12 champions, will play at 6:30 p.m. today at the Nanticoke Little League for the state title. Its opponent will be either Warrington or West Point, which played later Monday. That game, like Monday’s opener, started over two hours later than its original starting time due to torrential rain about 3:30 p.m. KFF ended its season as the Section 5 and District 31 champions.

DALLAS — Even though Rusty Flack passed away on May 26, his presence was felt at the Luzerne Foundation’s annual golf tournament Monday at the Huntsville Golf Club. The organizers of the Monsignor Andrew J. McGowan Memorial Cup decided to dedicate this year’s event to Flack’s memory. Charles Barber, the president and CEO of The Luzerne Foundation, said it was an appropriate way to keep Flack’s spirit alive. “Rusty was a wonderful friend and mentor, and he was certainly an inspiration who strived to improve The Luzerne County Foundation,” Barber said. Flack, who passed away at 56,

mission and hope of our involvement in the community, and how I could help move that mission forward. Everything he did was for the good of the community.” Mike Weaver, chairman of the golf tournament, expressed similar admiration. “He was a philanthropist, friend and family man,” Weaver said. “He was universally liked. We were thankful for his involvement in the foundation. He was full of life and he lit up a room. Everybody was always happy to see him.” Phil Decker, of Dallas Township, said the foundation thrived under Flack’s guidance. “He lived a good life and always had a positive outlook,” Decker

was the chairman of Diamond Consolidated Industries. He helped found the Luzerne Foundation in 1994, and served as its chairman for 10 years. “Rusty always listened and gave you his help,” Barber said. “He gave you the benefit of his experience and he always saw the big picture.” According to Barber, Flack played a key role in the foundation’s development and success. “Rusty hired me.

New Jets receiver Plaxico Burress stands on the sidelines during training camp on Monday in Florham Park, N.J. Burress signed with New York on Sunday.

Burress back on the field with the Jets

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. AP Sports Writer

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Plaxico Burress realizes he’s not 25 anymore. Or even 31— the age he was when he last played in the NFL. None of that matters to the new Jets wide receiver. And, he’s eager to show why no one else should worry about it, either. “I would say that when I step on this field Thursday or Friday, I’ll look 25,” Burress said as the Jets opened training camp Monday. “I feel that good physically.” Burress, who turns 34 on Aug. 12, was back on an NFL field — but he can’t practice just yet — for the first time since being released from prison after serving 20 months on a gun charge. The Jets signed him Sunday to a one-year deal, hoping he can revive his career the way Michael Vick has with the Eagles. See BURRESS, Page 4B

A look at the most recent Pocono Downs standings has Matt Kakaley still leading the way in the driver standings with 163 victories. It’s been a breakout year for the twenty-three year old reinsman, who is also closing in on $2 million in purses as well at the current meet. In second place is the defending driving champ George Napolitano. The Chester-Pocono driving stud is winning at a super 26.6% clip to boot. On the training side it’s also a one pony show, with the win machine Lou Pena leading the way. Pena has been just outstanding all season. He leads in win percentage, wins, UDRS and purses, and with his recent ban from Yonkers one can only think that those numbers will only get better! Chasing Lou is longtime trainer Carmine Fusco. After a slow start Carmine has done better with the warmer temperatures and can only hope to keep within shouting distance of the unstoppable Pena.

Ankiel hits 2 HRs in Nats’ 5-3 win The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Rick Ankiel has been on a tear since coming off the disabled list a month ago. Against the Atlanta Braves on Monday night he gave his best performance yet with two home runs in a 5-3 win. Ankiel led off the bottom of the first with a homer to center field, and his homer in the fifth inning landed deep in the second deck in left. It was the fifth multihomer game of his career, and the solo shots gave Ankiel five home runs this season. “Sometimes you say, ’It’s not how far, it’s how many,’ but both of those were pretty far,” teammate Jayson Werth said. Werth is the only other National with a first-inning leadoff homer this season, doing it on June 16 against St. Louis. Ankiel was hitting .204 with one home run and nine RBIs when he came off the disabled list on July 1 after recovering from a strained rib cage muscle. Since then, he’s batting .351 with four homers and 10 RBI. “One thing, he’s getting to play,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “It’s awfully hard to sit, especially if you’re capable of being a power hitter like he is.” Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla homered twice, in the second and ninth innings, giving him 22 this season. Uggla went 3 for 4, extending his career-long hitting streak to 23 games. The Nationals have been one of the few teams to figure out Atlanta starter Jair Jurrjens (12-4), who allowed five runs and seven hits in five-plus innings and lost for the first time in eight starts. The last time Jurrjens faced the Nationals on July 17, he gave up six runs in five innings. Phillies 4, Rockies 3

COLORADO – Shane Victorino clubbed a solo home run in the top of the 10th inning as the Phillies scored a comefrom-behind victory. The Phillies trailed 3-1 heading into the ninth, but John Marberry Jr. hit a two-run home run off Huston Street to tie the game. Cubs 5, Pirates 3

PITTSBURGH — Starlin Castro had three hits and Carlos Zambrano survived six choppy innings as the Chicago Cubs beat the slumping Pittsburgh Pirates to spoil slugger


















Marlins 7, Mets 3

NEW YORK — Mike Stanton hit a grand slam in the 10th inning and the Florida Marlins quickly recovered from Lucas Duda’s tying homer with two outs in the ninth to beat the New York Mets. Mets nemesis Gaby Sanchez drove in two runs and singled to start the decisive rally. Stanton threw out a runner at the plate in the fifth and Florida got seven strong innings from starter Javier Vazquez. The Marlins then took advantage of a defensive mistake by first baseman Daniel Murphy in the 10th. Brewers 6, Cardinals 2

MILWAUKEE — Nyjer Morgan hit a go-ahead, three-run double and the surging Milwaukee Brewers scored five runs in the fifth inning off Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter to rally for a win over St. Louis and extend their season-best winning streak to seven. Milwaukee (61-49) moved 3 1-2 games ahead of St. Louis in the NL Central, its biggest lead of the season. The Brewers and Cardinals will play 11 more times this year. Astros 4, Reds 3

HOUSTON — Rookie Jose Altuve drove in a run on a fielder’s choice in the 10th inning to lift the new-look Houston Astros to a win over the Cincinnati Reds. The bases were loaded when Altuve hit a hard grounder to Brandon Phillips, who grabbed it and made a throw home from his knees. But catcher Ryan Hanigan couldn’t handle the throw, allowing Humberto Quintero to score.

Sabathia picks up win No. 16 vs. White Sox CHICAGO — CC Sabathia pitched eight strong innings to earn his major league-best 16th win and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Monday for their fourth consecutive victory. Sabathia allowed two runs and 10 hits, matching a season high, but managed to wiggle out of trouble all night as the White Sox struggled to score without injured slugger Paul Konerko. They put the tying run in scoring position in the fifth, sixth and seventh and came away with nothing each time. Sabathia (16-5) improved to 9-1 with a 1.76 ERA in his last 10 starts, burnishing his credentials for a second AL Cy Young Award. The big left-hander has pitched at least six innings in each of his last 21 outings. Mariano Rivera pitched a perfect ninth for his 28th save in 32 chances and sec-


Derrek Lee’s two-homer debut with his new team. Lee, acquired in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night, knocked in all three Pittsburgh runs but it wasn’t enough as the Pirates lost for the sixth time in eight games. Ryan Ludwick, picked up by the Pirates just before the trade deadline, went 0 for 3 with a walk Zambrano (8-6) picked up his 13th career win over Pittsburgh, tied with Aaron Harang for second-most among active pitchers. Zambrano struck out five and walked three while giving up seven hits. Carlos Marmol pitched a perfect ninth to collect his 21st save.

BOSTON — Asdrubal Cabrera’s second two-run homer of the game, originally ruled a single off the short wall in right field and overturned by replay review, broke an eighth-inning tie and lifted the Cleveland Indians to a win over the Boston Red Sox. Travis Hafner homered after Cabrera’s first of the game as the Indians won for just the third time in their last 11 games. Jarrod Saltalamacchia had a broken-bat two-run homer and Carl Crawford had a solo homer, double and scored two runs for Boston, which was coming off a 20-6 record in July — it’s first 20-win month since May 2007. Cabrera’s homer came off reliever Daniel Bard (1-5) and halted his scoreless innings streak at 26 1-3, longest active in the majors.

Move was viewed as last ditch effort by owner to keep team on L.I. By FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Voters in a suburban New York community already paying some of the highest property taxes in the country rejected a referendum Monday to borrow $400 million for the construction of a new hockey arena and ballpark. The referendum failed in a 33,526 to 24,553 vote Monday in what elections officials said was a very low turnout for the unusual midsummer election. Nassau County officials who backed the effort say the August vote was needed to give officials enough time to build a replacement for the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum before the New York Islanders’ lease expires in 2015. Without a new building, the hockey team’s owner, Charges Wang, has said he may have to move off Long Island. “Abysmally low,” is how Nassau County Board of Elections Commissioner William Biamonte described turnout for the unusual mid-summer election. He said approximately 20,000 voters had cast ballots in the first several hours after polls opened at 6 a.m.; voters had until 9 p.m. to cast their ballots. The commissioner, a Democrat, said there were some minor problems with some workers arriving late to polling places, but no major issues. The county executive and others consider the vote a last-ditch effort to keep the NHL’s New York Islanders from relocating when the team’s lease expires in 2015. Wang said he will have to consider his options, including selling or moving to a new city if voters reject Monday’s referendum. Wang tried to privately develop the property about eight years ago, envisioning an expansive complex of office buildings, apartments and retail stores. That proposal, called the Lighthouse Project, failed because of community opposition. Now, he is backing a publicly financed plan. Nassau residents last year paid an average property tax bill of $11,500, nearly the highest in the country. The county portion of that tab is 16.4 percent. The rest goes to finance schools, although the county has no say over school district spending, which is decided in each local municipality. Mangano says the average cost to taxpayers would be as little as $14 per year; others estimate the average could be four times that amount.

“Our girls never quit, the Section 5 tournament all the way through,” KFF manager Mark Klosko said. “They are the best12 girls I’ve ever been around. They all deserve the biggest round of applause you can ever imagine.” The cheering looked like it had a chance to last one more day as the teams entered the fifth tied 1-1. Nina Magnotta hit a two-out single for KFF in the second to score Mandi Zawadzki, who had also singled with two outs. Williamsport tied the score in the fourth when Jessica Brooks bunted home Katee Cassidy from third. That bunt was a sign of what was to come in the next innings. Williamsport, which outscored its two previous sectional opponents 21-1, was able to get runners on early but couldn’t get that big hit against KFF starter Melodi Raskiewicz. Instead, Williamsport settled for some little ones, bunting four times in its seven-run fifth before Madison Bowman knocked in three runs with a double and Tabitha Koons later followed with a two-run double. “We wanted the girls to move runners,” Williamsport manager Bo Hornberger said. “We didn’t hit the ball well tonight, and we’re a good hitting team.” KFF came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the innings, cutting the deficit to 8-3.

ta led off with a single and the ball was misplayed, allowing her to get to third. An out later, she scored on an error on Morgan Sullivan’s grounder. KFF managed to load the bases with one out, but could get only one more run across. “They had no fear,” Klosko said of his team. “That’s how they’ve been from day one. It was take us on, give us your best shot and we’re going to come right back at you.” Williamsport

Hunter beats Geffard 19-12 at U.S. boxing trials MOBILE, Ala. — After a year off because of injury, heavyweight Michael Hunter wanted to prove that he is a legitimate candidate for professional stardom in the heavyweight ranks. First, though, there is the matter of making the U.S. Olympic Team — a dream that eluded him when he lost in the 2007 trials and missed a chance to go to Beijing. In addition, Hunter was going against Steve Geffard, the 2010 USA Boxing Athlete of the Year,

in a Monday afternoon winners’ bracket matchup that was anticipated by many fans at the Mobile Civic Center. “When I got here, people were telling me, ’I can’t wait for you and Steve to fight,”’ Hunter said. Whatever worries Hunter had fell by the wayside as he took a big step in qualifying for the 2012 team by beating Geffrard 19-12. Geffrard came out swinging in the first two rounds, hoping to catch Hunter off guard and wear him down. But Hunter came on strong and took command of the

third round. “It was the most I’ve ever been hit in my career,” Hunter said. “People questioned my conditioning, and I knew he (Geffard) would start off fast and make it an action-packed fight.” Hunter’s fight was one of several exciting matchups on the day. Another big one was in the winners’ bracket of the light welterweight division, where top-seeded Semajay Thomas of Chicago was beaten 21-20 by unseeded Pedro Sosa of the Bronx, N.Y.

Oswalt felt as if he were working with about half his strength as he tried to pitch through lower back inflammation that finally landed him on the disabled list June 24 – and eventually sent him to PNC Field for the tail end of his recovery process. He spent more than a week away from the Phillies when April turned to May, helping his family in luckless Mississippi recover from tornado damage after the weatherbeaten state was struck by deadly storms for the second straight year. Now, he’s got to restore some order to his season. “Right now, it’s just getting back in that rhythm of pitching,” Oswalt said, “after five weeks being off the mound.”

He still has plenty of time to turn it on when he joins a Phillies rotation featuring Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and wonder boy Vance Worley. They have helped the National League East-leading Phillies to baseball’s best record, but Oswalt promises to make them even better. “It’s going to be fun, especially with the team we’ve got now,” Oswalt said, eyeing a World Series run. “We’ve got the guys to get there, got a lot of guys back healthy.” The Phillies could always use another one who’s intent on moving them forward instead of looking back.

lead, but this time it didn’t relinquish the advantage. Luis Nunez doubled to score Jordan Parraz in the second and Jorge Vazquez slammed a run-scoring double in the third for the lead. Nunez, who was playing at second base in the second game, made a superb leaping catch in the sixth to end the inning with IronPigs runners on second and third. “From my vantage point, it was one of those that just kept rising,” Miley said. “For him to make that catch timing has to be impeccable and right on the nose and that’s basically what it was.” The Yankees added two more in the fifth. Jesus Montero had an RBI-double in the frame for a 4-1 lead. Lehigh Valley’s lone run scored in the top of the fifth on a solo shot by Kevin Frandsen. Kevin Russo had a big day for the Yankees going 5-for-8 during the doubleheader.

BURRESS Continued from Page 1B

Vick missed two seasons while serving prison time for his involvement in a dogfighting ring before returning to football in 2009. He was eased back into things by the Eagles before taking over as the starting quarterback last year and capping a terrific, highlight-filled season by being selected the AP’s Comeback Player of the Year. “He’s been a good friend of mine for a long time,” Burress said. “For him to come back at that elite level, it just shows a lot about him and his drive and his makeup. I’m just happy for him, and if it wasn’t for maybe him going through what he went through, maybe I wouldn’t be here today.” Burress is a former Super Bowl star with the Giants. He caught the winning touchdown pass in the upset of the unbeaten New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl before his career derailed after he accidentally shot himself in a New York nightclub later that year. After being released from prison, Burress worked out near his home in South Florida with several NFL quarterbacks including Matthew Stafford. He worked on his route running and pass catching, and that experience gives him the confidence he can be a star wide receiver in the NFL again. “It just feels like I never left,” he said. “I do expect some rust at some point, but I feel great and I’m healthy, which I haven’t been in a long, long time. And I think that’s going to be the dif-

ference in me getting back to where I want to be.” Quarterback Mark Sanchez, who one of several teammates who chatted on the sideline with Burress during the morning walkthrough and afternoon practice, has already been impressed with what he has seen. “He’s picking up the offense very quickly, which is no surprise,” Sanchez said. Burress, wearing a green visor, gray long-sleeved T-shirt and Jets shorts, and every other newly signed free agent in the league can’t practice until the union ratifies the labor agreement with the owners. “Patience, man,” he said. “I’ve been away and that’s one of the greatest things I’ve learned through this whole process is that it’s all coming together. Just take it one day at a time and be patient. You know it’s coming. Today’s Monday and I’m itching a little bit to get back out there, but it’s slowly coming. I’m not in a rush. It’ll be here before you know it.” Even before the nightclub incident, Burress was sometimes considered a malcontent, someone who was late for team meetings and didn’t always appear motivated. But, he said, that was back then. “I went through a lot of different things emotionally during that time,” Burress said. “I had all the time in the world to think about so many things that I did. Being that I’m here now, I really don’t have the time to reflect on any of the things I did negatively because it’s so far away from where I want to be as a person first and as a player. “I’m in a happy place right now.”







Samuel’s situation in Philly still hazy

Titans’ new outlook thanks to Munchak Tennessee’s former offensive line coach replaced Jeff Fisher after 16 seasons.

By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Figuring out the differences between new Tennessee coach Mike Munchak and the man he replaced is pretty easy. Just listen. Under Munchak, the Titans warm out before practice during training camp to the sounds of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” Bruce Springsteen and even Kool Moe Dee’s “Wild Wild West. The music is turned off once the Titans get down to work, and then the speakers are cranked back up at the end. Titans receiver Nate Washington jokes he couldn’t stretch out the first time he heard the music because he was so busy dancing. “He’s shaking it up in the proper way,” Washington said of the new coach. “He’s not whipping us with the whip, but he’s patting us on the back, and a lot of guys are pushing themselves harder to work for him. I appreciate the things he’s done so far in the organization thus far of us being here and the personality that he has.” Munchak was hired in February to replace Jeff Fisher, who left the Titans in late January after more than 16 full seasons as head coach. With the NFL lockout, Munchak didn’t get to work with his players until last week when the new labor deal finally was reached. So he stayed busy planning, preparing and sprucing up the team’s headquarters. “I’ve been waiting six months to start coaching,” Munchak said. Munchak revamped the coaching staff, keeping six assistants from Fisher’s staff. He set up his training camp schedules, which he had to rework last week after

MANKATO, Minn. — Randy Moss is calling it a career after 13 seasons in the NFL as one of the most dynamic and polarizing players the league has ever seen. Moss’s agent, Joel Segal, said Monday that the receiver was considering offers from several teams, but made the decision to retire. Segal declined to comment specifically on the offers, instead saying his client felt the time was right to step away. Moss caught 954 passes for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns in a career spent with Minnesota, Oakland, New England and Tennessee. The 34-year-old Moss bounced around the league in his final season, getting traded from the Patriots to the Vikings last season before he was cut and signed with the Titans.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak (left) talks with linebacker Will Witherspoon during training camp in Nashville, Tenn. Munchak is quickly putting his stamp on the team in his first year.

seeing the NFL’s new rules that turned the two-a-day sessions he wanted to run into morning walkthroughs and one full practice instead. In the building, he had drawings of former Houston Oilers reframed and displayed in a repainted lunch room to remind current players of the relocated franchise’s lengthy history. The players’ lounge got new chairs, and he even ripped out seats in the auditorium where the team meets. The Titans didn’t realize how much Munchak changed until they reported for training camp. That’s when they found out that all players, even veterans, would be spending camp at a nearby hotel instead of sleeping in their own beds as Fisher had allowed. Safety Michael Griffin hadn’t really ever talked to Munchak until after he was promoted to head coach in February before the lockout. He said Munchak wanted to take his Titans away for training camp, which the lockout prevented.

“Right now it’s almost like being at a real camp somewhere different just all being in the hotel and not being able to go home ...,” Griffin said. “That’s one of the main differences and having some organization around here. We have rules and guidelines, and I think that’s part of being a good football team is having the control of your team.” Right guard Jake Scott, who had Munchak as his position coach the past three seasons, said players will have no problem following Munchak’s logic. “Everything he does makes sense. You can see the purpose behind it,” Scott said. “Very rarely is he going to have us do something where you’re like, ‘Why are we doing this?’ Everything he does is with a purpose, and it’s usually pretty easy to see the purpose.” When the Titans reported for camp Friday, Munchak played a video for the players introducing them to their new coaches. The video included photos of Munchak from his Hall of Fame career with the Oilers along with each coach on the staff. Griffin, who played in college at Texas, said

he noticed special teams assistant Alan Lowry once quarterbacked the Longhorns. “His resume speaks for itself as does the rest of the coaching staff,” Griffin said. “They all played the game before. It’s not just somebody saying do this, do that. ... I feel very confident about this upcoming season.” For Munchak himself, he’s been coaching offensive linemen since 1994. He’s still trying to settle into what the head coach does during practices and said he didn’t know half of what went on during practice until after the first full session. “It was fun watching the coaches coach a little bit, watching their techniques and seeing their interaction with the players and getting to watch the different positions and seeing how guys are working and their work ethic,” Munchak said. Why the soundtrack? Munchak said they saw how energized children got with the music playing during a charity event in June, so he decided to keep playing music for both players and fans in training camp to help break up the quiet.

BETHLEHEM — If the Eagles want to trade him, that’s fine with Asante Samuel. He’ll be glad to take all his touchdowns and interceptions to another NFL team. “If they’re tired of my bigplay-making ability, maybe they’ll ship me out,” Samuel said. “Maybe they’ll keep me. I don’t know. Who knows?” Samuel reported to Lehigh University on Monday morning after missing the first four days of Eagles training camp with an excused, undisclosed personal matter. During those four days, the Eagles’ cornerback position grew very crowded. The Eagles acquired Pro Bowl CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from the Cardinals in the Kevin Kolb trade and signed another Pro Bowler, Nnamdi Asomugha, as a free agent. Those moves left Samuel wondering exactly where he fits in. “I want to be where I’m wanted,” Samuel said. “If I’m wanted here, then here. If I’m not appreciated here, then life goes on, and I move on.” Samuel has 42 interceptions in eight seasons, including an NFL-leading nine in 2009 and an NFC-best seven in just 11 games last year. He spent his first five seasons with the Patriots, playing in three Super Bowls and winning two. But the additions of Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha have clouded Samuel’s future in Philadelphia. Coach Andy Reid and general manager Howie Roseman have not discouraged trade rumors, say-

ing only that for now, all three cornerbacks are Eagles. “We think we have a great situation right now,” Roseman said last week. Samuel was asked Monday whether he believed the Eagles wanted him. “It’s probably 50-50,” he said. “So we’ll see how it goes.” Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo said Monday that because NFL teams throw the football so often these days, there was no reason all three cornerbacks couldn’t coexist. “Everybody’s trying to get three and really four good corners, the way people throw the football,” Castillo said. “We have three starters. We need three starters. That’s a great deal; we’re excited.” Samuel insists that if he remains with the Eagles, he doesn’t care how he’s used. “My role is my role,” Samuel said. “I’ll still do what I do. Nothing’s changed for me.” Asked if he was curious how he’d be used, he shrugged and said no. “Why would I wonder about that?” he said. “Wherever they want me to play, I’ll be able to play.” At practice Monday afternoon, Samuel was at his usual left cornerback spot and Rodgers-Cromartie was at right cornerback. Asomugha and other free agents are not allowed to begin practicing until Thursday. So — if Samuel is still here — the Eagles’ practice Thursday morning will be the first in which Samuel, Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha will all participate. Can it work? “Sure,” Samuel said. “Why not?”

Meeting produces little progress

By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — NBA talks have started again and are apparently going nowhere. A downcast Commissioner David Stern said “nothing” gave him reason for encouragement after a 2 1⁄2-hour meeting Monday between owners and players, the first to include leadership from both sides since the lockout began exactly a month ago. “I don’t feel optimistic about the players’ willingness to engage in a serious way,” Stern said. Stern added nothing had changed since the last meeting on June 30, hours before the old collective bargaining agreement expired, and said he doesn’t feel players are bargaining in good faith. Players argue that although owners insist they are committed to making a deal, their proposals say otherwise. Neither side offered a new proposal Monday, exactly three

months before the Nov. 1 scheduled opening of the regular season that seems more in doubt than ever. Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver were joined by San Antonio owner Peter Holt, who heads the labor relations committee, and Board of Governors chairman and Minnesota owner Glen Taylor represented ownership. Players’ association Executive Director Billy Hunter, and President Derek Fisher and Vice President Theo Ratliff, both of the Lakers, attended along with

union attorneys. “It’s a tough position to be in,” Fisher said. “I think Peter, Glen Taylor, Commissioner Stern, Adam Silver are articulating certain things in the room, expressing their desire to get a deal done, but where their proposal lies makes it hard to believe that. “So we’re continuing to try to work around what’s been said and really focus on the deal on the table, and right now we’re

still a very, very long way from getting a deal done.” Fisher said the sides would try to meet at least two or three more times in August. Stern said there is always reason to have meetings, yet made it clear owners feel not enough is happening during them. “Right now we haven’t seen any movement,” he said, adding “there’s still a very wide gap between us.”

CMYK Spending more as gas falls?

Another weak month for car sales?

Toyota earnings

The high price of gas and the weak job market have forced people to think twice before buying anything. That led to the Commerce Department’s report that consumer spending fell in April and May. Economists expect the June report to show some improvement, but it’s still likely to show that consumers are very hesitant. The report will show the kinds of goods and services that consumer spent on, such as food, clothing, travel and cars.

Look for a slight rise at best in car and truck sales for July. Sales fell sharply in May and were sluggish in June, the result of worries about the economy and low inventory due to the earthquake in Japan in March. Supply shortages are easing, but would-be buyers are nervous because the job market is weaker. The debate in Washington over the nation’s borrowing limit likely increased consumers’ reluctance to buy.

S&P 1,286.94 - 5.34


See-saw day in markets

U.S. stocks finished Monday’s rollercoaster session with a slight loss, with investors on uncertain footing before lawmakers vote on raising the federal borrowing limit. Stocks had rallied at the start, sending the Dow up by as much as 139 points, after the Obama administration and congressional leaders announced late Sunday they had reached a compromise to raise the U.S. debt ceiling and cut spending. But doubts over Congress’s ability to pass the contentious legislation, coupled with worries over a possible downgrade to the U.S. credit rating and a surprisingly weak U.S. manufacturing report, sent stocks skidding as much as 145 points.

WASHINGTON — Manufacturers had their weakest growth in two years in July, a sign that the economy could weaken this summer. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing executives, said Monday that its index of manufacturing activity fell to 50.9 percent in July

from 55.3 percent in June. The reading was the lowest since July 2009 — one month after the recession officially ended. Any level above 50 indicates growth. The manufacturing sector has expanded for 23 straight months. New orders shrank for the first time since the recession ended. Companies slashed their inventories after build-

ing them up in June. Output, employment and prices paid my manufacturers all grew more slowly in July. The disappointing report on manufacturing is the first major reading on how economy performed in July. It suggests the dismal economic growth in the first half of the year could extend into the July-September quarter. “The ISM manufacturing

report for July is a shocker and strongly suggests that the disappointing performance of the economy in the first half of the year was not just temporary,” said Paul Dales, a senior U.S. economist for Capital Economics. In a separate report, the Commerce Department said builders began work on more projects in June, pushing construction spending

Smokeless tobacco pushed

The nation’s top tobacco companies are spending less money on cigarette advertising and promotion and more money on promoting smokeless tobacco products, according to the latest data from the Federal Trade Commission. The data mirrors an industry trend as tobacco companies look to cigarette alternatives such as smokeless tobacco products for future sales growth because tax hikes, smoking bans, health concerns and social stigma make the cigarette business tougher.

Humana posts big profit

Humana Inc. posted a 35 percent surge in second-quarter profit Monday, easily beating Wall Street views, as more people enrolled in the health insurer’s Medicare plans while existing members made less use of its health care services.

higher for a third straight month. Construction spending rose 0.2 percent in June, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $772.3 billion, the government said. But even with the gains, spending remains slightly above an 11year low hit in March and is just half of the $1.5 trillion pace considered healthy by most economists.

HSBC will cut 30K globally By MEERA SELVA Associated Press

Ford Motor Co. is recalling 1.1 million pickup trucks because the gas tanks can fall off and cause fires. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday on its website that the metal straps holding the tanks can rust, allowing them to fall, rupture and catch fire. The defect has been blamed for eight fires, three of which spread to the rest of the truck. The recall affects certain 1997 through 2004 Ford F-150 models, as well as some 1997 through 1999 model year F-250 pickups. They were sold in cold-weather states, including Pennsylvania, where salt is used to clear roads.

Five former executives of American International Group Inc. and General Re Corp. who were convicted in a $500 million fraud case deserve a new trial, because the judge at their 2008 trial wrongly admitted stock-price data into evidence and gave improper jury instructions, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. Prosecutors had accused the executives of participating in a scheme in which AIG secretly paid Gen Re to take out reinsurance policies with AIG in 2000 and 2001 to boost AIG’s falling stock price.

FAA inspectors work without pay

By CHRIS HAWLEY Associated Press


EW YORK — Airport safety inspectors nationwide are working without pay and shouldering travel expenses themselves as the Federal Aviation Administration’s budget crisis enters a second week, transportation officials said Monday. The 40 inspectors are in charge of regular checks covering runways, navigation aids and other systems at dozens of airports and airlines. A typical inspector may travel to five airports in a two-week period and rack up thousands of dollars in hotel and airline tickets, FAA administrator Randy Babbitt said Monday. “We’re asking for them to put the balance on their credit cards,” Babbitt

said Monday. “It’s not right to ask them to do that, it’s just not.” The inspectors are among 4,000 FAA employees furloughed on July 22 after Congress refused to authorize FAA spending in a dispute over union provisions and subsidies to support airline service at smaller airports. The freeze has forced work to stop on about $2.5 billion in construction projects forced the layoffs of thousands of construction workers, the FAA says. Among the stalled projects is a new air traffic control tower at WilkesBarre/Scranton International Airport in Pittston Township. On Monday Babbitt and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood visited New York’s La Guardia airport, where work has stopped on a $6 million pro-

ject to demolish an old control tower that tower blocks the view from a new control tower built a few hundred feet away. LaHood said there was little progress on resolving the standoff over the weekend, but he hoped Congress would turn its attention to the FAA budget after reaching a tentative deal on Sunday to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. In addition to the furloughs and halted projects, the shutdown means the FAA cannot collect the $30 million a day normally imposed on airline tickets through federal taxes. But there has been no benefit to airline passengers because airlines have raised their fares by the same amount.

LONDON — British banking group HSBC said Monday it will cut 30,000 jobs worldwide by 2013 and sell almost half its retail bank branches in the U.S., part of a new strategy to focus on fastgrowing emerging markets. The bank, which reported a better-than-expected 3 percent increase in pretax profits to $11.5 billion in the six months to June, has already cut 5,000 jobs this year. Another 25,000 will be slashed by 2013, spokesman Patrick Humphris said. HSBC currently employs around 296,000 people worldwide. Humphris declined to give details of where the job cuts would be but said the group is still hiring in emerging economies. The move echoes similar announcements by other global banks, such as Credit Suisse, UBS and Goldman Sachs, who in recent weeks said they needed to trim payrolls to adjust to tougher market conditions. As part of its restructuring, HSBC will sell 195 retail banking branches in the United States to First Niagara Bank for around $1 billion. Most of the branches to be sold are in upstate New York, while six are in Connecticut. Four more are in northern Westchester County, and two in Putnam County. The bank is still dealing with the legacy of bad loans in the U.S. from the 2003 acquisition of consumer lender Household International Inc. The acquisition made HSBC the biggest subprime lender in the United States at the time, which resulted in billions of losses to HSBC leading up to the financial crisis of 2008.

ASUS brings a stylish touch of nature to its lineup of laptops IT’S NEARLY that time again. My current work laptop, a Dell Studio, has been a reliable standby for nearly three years. It’s still speedy, it’s got just about every bell and whistle I can ask for, and I don’t see myself getting rid of it anytime soon. But time has taken its toll. The battery is, in a word, “shot.” The case has a tiny chunk missing, the result of being dropped. It was, perhaps miraculously, otherwise unharmed. One of the keys has cracked in half, no doubt from my “energetic” typing technique. The plas-

TECH TALK NICK DELORENZO tic on one of the mouse buttons is worn. All of these are more or less cosmetic details. But as far as it goes, when the first thing that anyone says when they walk into your office is “You need a new computer,” it’s time for an upgrade. I don’t usually buy a computer at a computer store. These days you usually get more options buying from a website, which is what I did with my last machine. But a few weeks ago at Best Buy, I no-


ticed a laptop that was particularly striking. It was an Asus U53JC, as I would come to find out. The attraction was, at first, only skin deep. The thing that separates this laptop from most others on the market is, without a doubt, the finish. This one was clad in a rich, dark bamboo shell with brushed aluminum trim. In short, it had presence.

And the specs are nothing to scoff at – 4 Gigs of RAM, 15.6 inch monitor, Nvidia GeForce 310M video card with 1 Gig of ram – a 640 GB hard drive, DVD burner, 2 megapixel webcam, an impressive 10.5 hours of battery life, and Altec Lansing speakers, all driven by an Intel Core i5 Processor with up to 3.33 GHz speed. Depending on the specs you’re looking at, this laptop, with the 15 ½ inch monitor, will come in at about $1,000, a reasonable price, given the specs. If style and power in combination are what you’re after – I recommend this laptop. It looks good just about anywhere.

Washington’s proposed debt deal would fix one short-term problem: a possible default by the government. But it wouldn’t eliminate long-term challenges for investors. What to expect if the deal becomes law, and some investment moves to consider:


Prepare for a possible downgrade


Prepare for weaker growth

The debt problems in the U.S. show the value of including foreign stocks and bonds in your portfolio. Brazil and other emerging markets don’t have big debt loads like the U.S., European countries or Japan. And currencies of emerging markets countries are rising against the dollar, which makes their bonds worth more when converted to dollars.

The debate over the government’s debt has taken place while a series of reports has shown the economy is weakening. The proposal to cut more than $2 trillion in spending over a decade could further hurt the economy. Federal spending accounts for 8 percent of the gross domestic product. A ratings downgrade would also hurt the economy because mortgage and other loan rates are based on Treasury yields and would rise. Stocks have fallen in response to the economic reports. They’re not likely to start rising steadily until there are signs that the economy is getting stronger again. Your best bet might be to buy stocks like consumer products and health care companies. They tend to weather bad economic times.

Even if Congress averts a default, credit-rating agencies may lower the country’s top AAA rating. It’s not known when that might happen. A downgrade would force the government to pay higher interest on Treasurys. Since yields move opposite from price, expect government bond prices to fall – especially long-term Treasurys, because they’re considered the riskiest. You might want to sell longterm bonds soon. But you also might want to be a buyer when the yield on the 30-year bond goes up to 5 percent.

Look abroad

So far this summer the longest spell without rain here in Luzerne County is eight days and the total collected since June 1 is 12.16� ! That amount is 6.54� more than what fell last summer to today’s date. Still, the farmers and the gardeners would be happy with more rain this week and there’s a guarantee for more tomorrow. As a wave of low pressure approaches, rain could arrive before daybreak tomorrow and under thick, nimbus clouds, temperatures will remain only in the 70s for a change. Over the past 31 days, we’ve only had one day with a high below 80. - Tom Clark

Obesity study All right, food indulgers: We’ve been busted. Harvard University researchers have published a 20-year study that followed 120,000 men and women, detailing the good and bad foods that contribute to obesity.

nibble away on our quiz. 1. What was the average weight variation of the subjects over a four-year period? a) gained 3.35 pounds b) gained 12.58 pounds c) lost .78 pounds 2. We’re shocked — shocked — that researchers found the four-year weight change was most strongly associated with the intake of potato chips. How much average weight did the treat add to wais-

ied? a) vegetables b) yogurt c) whole grains 5. Why do researchers believe yogurt is so effective in weight reduction? a) Because the antioxidants and calcium increase the metabolic rate. b) Because changes in colonic bacteria might influence weight gain.

Bereavement support The Spiritual Care team at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center will host a free sixweek bereavement support group, Living with Grief, from 6-7:30 p.m. beginning Thursdays Aug. 11 and ending on Sept. 15 in the Spiritual Center at GWV, 1000 E.

Yes, playground workouts can be embarrassing, especially when other moms and dads are relaxing or chatting on cellphones. But if you’re strapped for time, playgrounds are ideal workout spots, and not just because they’re free. You’re stuck there anyway, they’ve got all the equipment you need, and research shows even tiny bouts of exercise are associated with increased fitness. And while a public workout takes some courage, “your actions might inspire a lifetime of health and fitness in your children or others,” said celebrity fitness trainer Marco Borges. For some people, playground equipment may even be better than regular-size workout structures, said Borges. Monkey bars, for example, are built for kids so they’re shorter than regular pullup bars. “That means you can start from a standing position and use your legs for added help,” said Borges, who runs a playground fitness boot camp.

Wellness checks for students Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre is hosting a free health and wellness fair for children and families from 3 to 7 p.m. Aug. 18, in the main lobby of the hospital, 25 Church St., Wilkes-Barre.The event will include screenings, information booths staffed by health experts and activities designed to prepare families for the new school year. Healthy refreshments will be served. Screenings and activities include height and weight measurements, body mass index, Wii Fit games, backpack checks, vision checks, jump ropes and hula hoops, a hand-washing demonstration, nutrition and obesity information, drunk vision simulator, proper sleep patterns, poison prevention, a body mechanics display, used book fair, gift shop and resale shop sales, basket raffles and giveaways.

Choking game moves teen to action lescent medicine at the University of Kentucky. In the last two years, three Kentucky deaths have been linked to the game, and Omar has treated eight teens for injuries connected with near-strangulation. Perhaps more startling, Omar said, is “when I ask teens if they know someone doing it, over 50 percent say ‘yes.’” The average age is 13, but the age range is usually between 9 and 16, he said. That wasn’t the case a few years ago. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which issued its first warning about the practice in 2008, statistics are hard to collect because most of deaths related to choking involve the use of a ligature such as a belt, and they are routinely classified as suicide. Games Adolescents Shouldn’t Play, or

By MARY MEEHAN McClatchy Newspapers

Two years ago, Hayley Cunningham lost her cousin to a deadly game she’d never heard of. Her cousin was found dead in his bedroom after accidentally choking himself, the result of an increasingly fatal practice gaining popularity among middle-school students known as the “choking game.” It involves near-strangulation that provides a brief floaty feeling and fainting. After grieving her cousin’s death, Cunningham decided she wanted to educate others and maybe save a life. “It would just be wrong to have this kind of information that others don’t know,” said Cunningham, 18. While conducting research for presentations she hoped to give at her school, she met Dr. Hatim Omar, chief of the division of ado- See CHOKING, Page 4C


Weight loss: Shed pounds slow and steady Q: Would you please explain “weight loss resistance”? I am exercising daily and restricting calories to 1,200 calories/day or less. Despite my efforts, I am losing only one-half to one pound a week. — S.N., Cumming, Ga. A: Before we tackle the issue of “weight loss resistance,” let me first say that losing one-half to one pound a week is pretty good. That translates to a weekly caloric reduction of between 1,750 and 3,500 calories a week. At that pace, you’ll lose between 26 and 52 pounds in a year. I think it’s best to think of the approach to weight loss like running a marathon, rather than running a sprint. The next thing I’ll address is the “1,200 calorie diet.” Most folks who are frustrated that their 1,200 calorie diet is failing them are consuming more than 1,200 calories. Most folks have a poor ability to estimate the calorie content of foods. Another factor that contributes to weight loss resistance is your medication list. Examples of medications that may contribute to weight gain include antidepressants; beta blocker blood pressure drugs; steroids; diabetic medication; anti-seizure drugs; and hormonal-replacement therapy. A slow thyroid or elevated insulin level also contributes to weight gain and resistance to weight loss. So too does a chronically high stress state. A great web resource that might help you when calorie counting is: http:// Q: I received an email that describes coughing as a way of saving your life in the event of a heart attack. Does that actually work? — G.H., Lake Worth, Fla. A: No, with very rare exceptions. What you read is an email that’s been circulating on the Internet since 1999. Not only will it not work in most instances, but it could make things much worse. The idea is that if a person was in cardiac arrest with a life-threatening heart arrhythmia, the act of forceful and repeated coughing could, in theory, increase pressure inside the chest cavity and assist the heart’s pumping of blood and briefly keep a person from losing consciousness. The American Heart Association does not endorse this technique. It only works in the setting of a life threatening heart arrhythmia. Since most experiencing chest pain do not know if they’re about to pass out, the act of coughing will increase the heart rate and stress an already injured heart. Chewing and swallowing one adult 325-mg aspirin at the moment of a suspected heart attack is a far more effective strategy.

Bait used to kill snails is highly toxic to dogs HAVING A NICE garden can be very soothing. Flowers mixed in with lush greenery, and maybe a lawn, combine to create a serene environment that invites relaxation and reflection. Of course, we may not be the only creatures that appreciate such a nice environment. It seems that a garden provides very attractive feeding grounds for many types of animals, and one of the more common types — and I might add ravenous, as well — is the snail. These little mollusks can munch through a plant, reducing it to mere twigs in no time. Peggy knows firsthand about this problem. For a while now, Peggy has been watching parts of her garden disappear as snails eat away. She is to the point where she wants to fight back. Peggy realizes there are snail baits that can be used in the yard to kill the little beasts, but she worries about hurting Gizmo, her 1-1⁄2-year-old King Charles spaniel. Gizmo loves spending time in Peggy’s garden. Snail bait can be highly toxic to dogs. The most common brands contain metaldehyde, which, when ingested, initially causes nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. This can lead to severe retching and vomiting. These gastrointestinal signs are followed or occur concurrently with muscle rigidity and convulsions, leading to coma and, in some cases, death. Obviously, this is a compound we do not want our dogs to eat! So then, what do we do about the snails? There is another type of snail bait on the market that is far less potentially toxic to dogs. The active ingredient is iron phosphate. It works by des-

YOUR PET JEFF KAHLER, D.V.M. iccating the snails and is relatively safe for dogs, unless they eat a large amount. That amount would be far more than one would need to put out in the yard. Unfortunately, when compared with metaldehyde-based snail baits, the iron phosphate products do not seem to work quite as well. Personally, I do not use toxins for snail control in my yard. I have chosen a more natural route. I use turtles. These fabulous little guys have so decimated the snail population in my yard that I seldom see any snails anymore. Of course, snail control via turtle predation is not something everyone can do. You must have a yard that is escapeproof for the turtle, and depending on the species of turtle, they may not be able to handle our weather pattern year-round. There are other predators. Ducks make fabulous snaileating machines, but they carry with them some requirements of their own. They also produce a large amount of messy feces. Unfortunately, there really is no best case scenario when it comes to eliminating snails in every yard. When you are lucky enough to care for a dog, you should avoid metaldehyde-based snail baits. I have heard of dogs that love to eat snails. Maybe Peggy can entice Gizmo into expanding his cuisine. Snails are actually quite nutritious. Jeff Kahler is a veterinarian in Modesto, Calif.

To make it harder: Hop on one foot. • Play follow the leader: If you can fit, simply follow your child through the play structures. “This can open up a lot of possibilities for agility, core strength, climbing and running,” said John Colver, the author of the book “Fit by Nature” a 12-week outdoor fitness program. • Be sly: If you don’t want to draw too much attention to yourself, try standing on one leg as long as possible. To make it harder, stand on one leg with your eyes closed. Or try the Invisible Chair (wall squat) by standing with your back against a tree, wall or piece of equipment. Move your feet away from the wall but keep your hips and back on the wall. Bending at the knees, lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Your knees should be directly above your feet and be bent at 90 degrees, said Lauren, the author of “You Are Your Own Gym.” • Live in your gym: If you start believing “there is no gym separate from the rest of your life,” the opportunities are endless, Colver said in “Fit by Nature.” “The picnic table in the park across the street could be the best piece of exercise equipment you’ll ever use.”

Dial up the effort Body-weight exercises — push-ups, pull-ups and sit-ups — are some of the best moves to try at a playground because they require no equipment, and once you’ve mastered the basics, you can easily adjust the difficulty. In fact, “the only limiting factor is your creativity,” said military fitness expert Mark Lauren, author of “You Are Your Own Gym,” which includes 125 different body-weight exercises. “Every weightlifting motion can be mimicked, made harder or easier, with your own body weight.” Lauren suggests using four techniques to change the difficulty: • Increase or decrease the amount of leverage • Perform an exercise on an unstable platform • Use pauses at the beginning, end and/or middle of a movement • Turn an exercise into a single-limb movement (use one hand instead of two) Five to try • Bring a jump rope: Skipping rope is a big-time calorie burner — comparable to running — and it’s an effective way to build bone density, said Tim Haft, the founder of Punk Rope, a jump ropethemed workout class. “It enhances coordination, improves

CHOKING Continued from Page 1C

GASP, a non-profit group dedicated to education about the choking game, notes on its website that there could be as many as 1,000 deaths a year in the United States. Unlike auto-erotic asphyxiation, which involves both nearstrangulation and masturbation, most young people view the choking game as a harmless diversion, said Marlene Huff, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Kentucky. “This is not about sex at all,” Huff said. Instead, adolescents try to achieve a tingly or floaty feeling that comes from the oxygen supply being cut off to the brain and a euphoria created when the blood comes rushing back after nearstrangulation, she said. That euphoria is caused by a chemical released by dying brain cells, and the surge in blood can cause stroke or seizures. A single act can cause hemorrhaging in the brain that can permanently affect brain function, he said. Death can occur in as little as four minutes. Some kids who are natural risk takers try the game, Huff said, but often, well-behaved students who make good grades view the practice as a harmless alternative to other taboo behaviors, such as using alcohol or drugs.

SYMPTOMS OF THE CHOKING GAME It’s estimated as many as 250 to 1,000 young people die in the United States each year playing some variant of the Choking Game, but it’s difficult to track statistics because many of the cases are reported as suicides. • Child has a rope, tie, belt or other such object in his/her bedroom for no clear reason • Changes in personality such as becoming overly aggressive • Trouble concentrating, or a flushed face • Bloodshot eyes • Headaches • Marks on the child’s neck, wearing clothing that covers the neck • Child asks questions about strangulation • A thud in a child’s room — meaning a fall in cases of solitary practice For information, go to, the website of Adolescents Shouldn’t Play (GASP), a nonprofit dedicated to education about the “choking game.”

The game often begins as a group activity at slumber parties or unsupervised get-togethers, Huff said, but it is most dangerous when done alone, because there is no one to help if someone passes out. If a parent suspects that a child has experienced the game, he or she should take the child to see a specialist in adolescent medicine or a pediatrician well versed in the practice, allowing the child and the health professional to talk alone first, joining them later to ask questions, Huff said.

Readers agree that unexpected pregnancies can bring unexpected joy Dear Abby: I am writing to respond to “Old Mama in Washington State” (June 1), whose pregnancy at 40 is unwelcome to her husband and two teens. My parents had a “bonus baby” when they were in their early 40s. I was 17 and my brother was 13 when we found out. It was hard for us to accept at first. I was grossed out by the idea of my parents having sex, and I was afraid people would think the baby was mine after she was born. All our worries disappeared when we first laid eyes on our baby sister. I love her to death, and she is lucky to have my brother as her protector.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE It was a good thing that we were nearly 18 years apart, because I got the benefits of a sister without having to share a room! Now, at 12, she’s a fabulous friend to my 8-year-old and will soon be big enough to baby-sit the 4-year-old and the baby. I’m sure “Mama’s” family will become more accepting over time. When they see that baby, they’ll know their family is finally complete. — Proud Big Sister in Chicago Dear Big Sister: Thank you for writing. I received a mountain of


mail in response to that letter. Readers were enthusiastic in expressing their firsthand experiences being families with unexpected pregnancies. Read on:

worth it. This time around you’ll have so much more patience and wisdom — and you’ll pick your battles more wisely. — Been There, Done That

Dear Abby: I was pregnant with twins at 45 and my then-l8-yearold daughter was furious with me, going as far as banning me from her high school graduation. It hurt, and I agonized over the decision, but in the end I waddled in anyway. I’m so glad I did. Fast-forward: The twins are almost 3 now, and they worship their older sister and brother, and the feeling is mutual. As soon as “Mama’s” husband sees the baby, I’m sure he’ll be over the moon as well. Yes, the future looks exhausting, but it’s well

Dear Abby: I have to agree with “Mama’s” family. Pregnant at 40 is not a miracle, and she’s deluded to think so. I was born when my mother was 42. I’m 16 years younger than my oldest sibling, and all my cousins are older. It is hard growing up with no siblings to play with and no cousins to really talk to because they’re all in high school and don’t want a “kid” tagging along. I felt unwanted most of my childhood. It gets better for a while, but then


you watch your parents age and die. I didn’t have the kind of relationship with my grandparents that my siblings did. And because I was born so many years behind everyone, I missed out on most of the fun family times. Please tell “Mama” not to take it personally, to be sure her new addition is paid attention to and assured that he/she is much loved and wanted. — Unexpected Surprise in Texas To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who are observant will notice straight away: You are different from who you were before. You would rather show your newfound confidence with action than talk about it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You know yourself well. You require a degree of challenge in order to stay engaged and involved. Another person might get stressed out by the stimulus you find comforting. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have nothing to prove. People react to you the way they do because of their deeply rooted attitudes and opinions that have very little, if anything, to do with you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll try new places, things and ideas. This keeps life fresh and exciting. You may spend more money than expected, but you won’t regret the expense. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Opposites don’t really attract as often as people say they do. However, reacting in an equal and opposite way to the one you love will build the relationship now. When the other person pushes, you pull back. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You value your friendships and expect them to take up an appropriate amount of space in your life. You have no need for overpowering relationships that upset the flow of normal life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Maybe you don’t know what to expect, but that hasn’t stopped you before. Go forward. You are a beloved child of the universe and will be cared for as such.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The way you learn grace is to, from time to time, fall from it. Much depends on your ability to recover from the tips and tumbles that are a normal part of life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You won’t give in. But the person you’re negotiating with doesn’t realize this just yet, so he or she will continue to try to sway you with logic, emotional appeals and other temptations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will maintain the policy that your emotions are no one else’s concern. You are so impressively self-contained now that you will earn the trust of people you don’t even know. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will give in on the small points and validate your loved one with your agreement, even when you’re not so sure he is right. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though a certain person sees you as attractive in every way, your standards for yourself are a bit more stringent. You’ve set the bar high, and now you’ll work hard to keep it there. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 2). No matter what you do for a living, this year you will be in the business of making people happy. Your intuition is honed, and you’ll realize just what it takes to make people smile. This month, you’ll spend time with those you admire and make some memories. In September, you’ll sign an important contract. Sagittarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 19, 31 and 11.
