Burgit’s makes decision after third driver robbed in three days

Taxis to avoid parts of W-B By EDWARD LEWIS




Robbie Burgit of Burgit City Taxi said cab drivers do not carry a large amount of money and deposits are made after every two or three fares. ‘To be pulling a gun out for $25 or $40, you got to be kidding me,’ Burgit said.

Burgit said outside his business on South Main Street, a few hours after one of his drivers was struck in the face with a pistol. “Sorry to say, that’s the way it has to go. South Hancock, South Welles streets, the bad areas, no fares are getting picked up or dropped off there.” City police allege Travis Matthews, 24, a 15-year-old male and a 13-year-old male got into a Burgit taxi in the area of Garfield

WILKES-BARRE – High crime areas of the city are off limits for Burgit’s City Taxi drivers after a driver was pistol whipped and robbed Tuesday, the third such incident in as many days. Owner Robbie Burgit said he was forced to eliminate service to certain sections of WilkesBarre after the latest robbery on Arch Street. “Certain trouble spots will be avoided, especially at night,” See TAXIS, Page 12A

POLICE BLOTTER HUGHESTOWN – Firefighters extinguished a fire that tore through a home at 252 Parsonage St. late Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Hughestown Fire Chief Jamie Merlino said firefighters responded at 11:55 p.m. Monday and had the blaze under control within 30 minutes. The fire apparently started in an attached garage to the rear of the house and spread to the basement and up through the walls of the home, Merlino said. High heat and humidity made it difficult for firefighters to work near the fire for longer than 15 minutes, prompting the department to call for backup, Merlino said. Multiple departments from northern Luzerne County and Southern Lackawanna County responded. Merlino said seven people and several pets lived in the house but all escaped unharmed. One firefighter from another department suffered minor injuries battling the blaze, he added. A state police fire marshal is continuing to investigate the cause of the fire but has ruled out arson as a cause, Merlino said. WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Ethan Pidcock of WilkesBarre reported he was assaulted and robbed by three men in the area of West River and Academy streets at about 10:54 p.m. Monday.

Sitler said the men were in their early 20s and two men wore white T-shirts. One of the men has a light complexion with hair pulled back into a pony tail. • John Metzo, of North Franklin Street, reported Monday someone stole a television during a burglary at his residence. • Police said they are investigating a burglary at the Marine Corps League, East Main Street, on Monday.

Cleaner charged in library theft Police allege Thomas Joshua Evanchik, 31, took cash from closet at the Hoyt Library. By MATT HUGHES

NANTICOKE – Kingston police used a hidden surveillance camera to nab a cleaning man charged Tuesday with stealing cash from the Hoyt Library. Police charged Thomas Joshua Evanchik, 31, of Kingston, on burglary and theft charges. He was arraigned Tuesday afternoon before District Judge Donald Whittaker, Nanticoke, and remanded to Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $75,000 percentage bail. According to court documents: Police were contacted by li-

brary administrators on July 19 regarding the apparent disappearance of cash from the library’s receipts. Between July 14 and July 19, library director Melissa Szafran said $113.25 went unaccounted for. On July 23, police installed a hidden camera facing the locked closet where cash is stored at night. On Monday, police retrieved the camera and reviewed the footage. In the video, police said, Evanchik, who stands 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds, can be seen removing an air vent at the bottom of the locked closet door, climbing head first through the vent into the closet, then climbing head first back out again at approximately 11 p.m. Sunday. An audit revealed the library’s receipts were short $165.89 between Thursday and Monday, police said.

Evanchik is an employee of Commercial Cleaners, a cleaning company contracted to clean the Hoyt Library. He said at his arraignment he has worked for the cleaning company, which is owned by his father, since he was laid off from his job as a commercial airline pilot approximately two years ago. Officer Thomas McTague of the Kingston Police Department said he arrested Evanchik on Tuesday after seeing him in front of his house on Division Street in Kingston. McTague said Evanchik cooperated with police. When asked for comment after his arraignment, Evanchik asked for “somebody (to) come by and finish cutting my grass.” DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER A preliminary hearing has been set for Aug. 10 at 10:30 a.m. Thomas J.

Because he’s Japanese, he likes his sake.” The event continues through Saturday and the restaurant will

donate 20 percent of its total sales raised through then to the SPCA of Wyoming Valley. The event raised more than $1,500 in 2009 and more than $2,000 for the SPCA last year, Cork owner Ruth Corcoran said. It also promotes awareness of the SPCA, said Education and Volunteer Director Cary Moran. “We’re out here to be the face of the SPCA, so that people get to know us better and get in-

volved,” Moran said. Moran said the SPCA has taken in a higher than average volume of animals this summer, in part due to several high-profile incidents of animal neglect. Volunteers also brought animals eligible for adoption to the event. The SPCA also used the event to promote its “Tails at Twilight: A Holiday Affair” fundraiser planned for Dec. 10 at the Highlands at Newberry Estate.



Nepotism policy addition sought

New full-time officer approved

By AMANDA MYRKALO Times Leader Correspondent

WEST PITTSTON – Councilman Barry Stankus on Tuesday night asked council to add additional wording to the borough’s nepotism policy and code of ethics to include extended family members, stating, “If doing an anti-nepotism policy, cover it all.” Also during council’s monthly meeting, with only Councilman Jim Rose absent, council heard two letters the borough received complimenting the paving work in the borough. Mayor Tony Denisco said the police department is now on Facebook if residents wanted to read its current updates. Council President Brian Thornton also recognized the youth in the community, especially the Greater Wyoming Area softball and baseball teams that went to the state championships. Only some of the team members were West Pittston residents and attended the meeting, but Thornton wanted to congratulate everyone, stating, “We have some very, very good talent locally.” He also said that “too often these things go unnoticed, and I don’t want them to go unnoticed.” The age 9-to-10-year-old girls won the crown at their state championship, and the age 13-through-15-yearold girls won the eastern half of their state championship. The age 10-to-11-year-old boys won the crown at their state championship.

EXETER – Borough council unanimously approved the hiring of a new full-time police officer during Tuesday night’s regular meeting. Pending the results of psychological and physical examinations, Frank Oakridge of Shavertown will be hired as the borough’s third full-time officer at a starting yearly salary of $26,000. Police Chief John McNeil anticipates having Oakridge on duty within roughly three weeks. In other law enforcement related business, Martha Zavada and Marion Rubino, the daughters of former Exeter Police Chief Joseph Zavada, attended

the meeting to announce their preference for an inscription to be featured on a plaque commemorating their father’s service. The surviving family members of Chief Zavada were first approached four years ago about the plaque, but various issues and schedule conflicts pushed the family’s decision back until this summer. The inscription will read, “respected, loved, dedicated to god, family and community.” Martha Zavada said she is still regularly approached by people wishing to relay fond memories of her father, who served as police chief from 1937 through 1967. She also pointed out that he was instrumental in helping to

establish a pension fund for future Exeter police chiefs. After apologizing for letting the process become so delayed, she said that she felt it was important to see the plaque created before memories fade. “We don’t want to lose the heritage he created,” she said. McNeil, who earlier in the meeting had been awarded a $50 stipend for his voluntary service in administering portions of the civil service test during the police officer hiring process, asked that the council contribute his stipend toward the Zavada plaque. His donation prompted at least three additional $50 donations from members of the public present at the meeting.

Two at Shickshinny meeting want Whitebread to quit By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

SHICKSHINNY – Two residents called for the resignation of council Chairwoman Rosalie Whitebread over two recent incidents that caused what was described at Tuesday’s meeting as a public embarrassment to the community. The incidents involve the dumping of excess blacktop on the property of Art Brobst Jr. and a public display in

which Whitebread and others were seen flashing a middle finger in a photo after a bed race conducted in conjunction with Shickshinny’s sesquicentennial celebration. Whitebread acknowledged and thanked Jule Moore and Richard Kuchta for their comments but gave no indication that she intended to resign. Moore criticized Whitebread for bad conduct and poor judgment with regard to the dumping of blacktop on Brobst’s property. Brobst is re-

ported to be a friend of Whitebread. Moore suggested the road material could have been utilized to repair potholes or street paving. Kuchta concurred and proposed that Whitebread should “step down.” Councilpersons Mike Steever and Kevin Morrie rallied to Whitebread’s defense. Whitebread said she is humiliated by the two incidents and sorry they occurred.

LOCAL Hazleton cops to use county 911 Dispatching switch in October will free up city police for patrols at night, mayor says. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES

Luzerne County 911 plans to start dispatching Hazleton police calls on Oct. 1, which means 911’s service will now blanket the entire county. Dispatching involves the processing of a call and, if warranted, the summoning of police, fire and/or emergency workers to the scene.

Hazleton was the only municipality in the county that had not turned over all of its dispatching to 911. The county 911 department handled Hazleton’s fire and emerYannuzzi gency services dispatching, but not police. Until Oct. 1, calls to 911 for Hazleton police will continue to be forwarded to the city for dispatching. Kingston, which had been the only other hold-out, turned over its dispatching to the county 911 last September.

Objections by Powell to lawsuit go forward

Hazleton Mayor Joe Yannuzzi said he initiated the 911 switch to put more police on the street. Two part-time workers dispatched city police calls during the day, but a patrol officer was tied to the phone on nights and weekends, he said. “By doing this, we are going to free up an officer from all of the shifts. It’s a big deal for us,” Yannuzzi said. The city police department is “busier than ever” and looking for ways to enhance coverage with 40 police officers, he said. For example, the city is purchasing equipment and recording programs for

businesses and citizens who buy exterior security cameras. Twenty-eight cameras have been installed to date, and 10 more installations are pending, he said. City police are supportive of the dispatching change, though some officers had been concerned that 911 dispatchers who aren’t familiar with the city will send them “in the wrong direction,” the mayor said. City firefighters reported few problems with the county 911 dispatching, though there may be a learning curve, See HAZLETON, Page 6A

Griffith subpoenas records Luzerne County Controller Walter Griffith said he issued a subpoena Tuesday to obtain records his office had requested from the county sheriff’s office three weeks ago. Griffith said he wants records on gun permit expenses and revenue for an audit. The audit will determine whether the county is receiving the correct amount of revenue, he said. The county may be owed reimbursement due to overpayments Griffith to the state, he said. Griffith said he had been informed by the sheriff’s office that the information he was requesting was confidential. The controller said his solicitor unsuccessfully tried to contact the sheriff’s office solicitor to resolve the matter. The controller’s office routinely reviews records that contain confidential information as part of audits in other county departments, Griffith said.


Judge denies request by insurance firm that seeks $2M from Powell. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County judge ruled Monday that a local attorney’s objections to a lawsuit filed in which an insurance company says it should be reimbursed $2 million in an uninsured motorist claim will not be stopped. Judge Lewis Wetzel said in a one-page order that the insurance company’s request to stop the preliminary objections filed by attorney Jane Sebelin was denied – after Erie Insurance said it needs more time to get documents and testimony from Sebelin. Sebelin, a Lehighton attorney, is named as a defendant in the suit, as well as Robert PoPowell well and his law firm, Powell Law Group. Erie Insurance claims in the original lawsuit filed earlier this year it should be reimbursed the $2 million stemming from an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim from 2006. Sebelin claims in her objections filed in June that she should be dismissed from the lawsuit, while Erie Insurance claims it should be reimbursed because Powell and his law firm engaged in “common law fraud” and “unjust enrichment” by collecting the money in an arbitration award in which the arbiter was appointed by former county Judge Mark Ciavarella. Another hearing in the case is scheduled for Monday, according to court documents. Ciavarella and Powell had a connection due to the ongoing county corruption probe, the insurance company says, leading to the fraud and unjust enrichment. Ciavarella was found guilty in February of accepting kickbacks from the builder of two juvenile detention centers the county utilized, and is expected to be sentenced on related charges next week. Powell, a former center co-owner, pleaded guilty in federal court to charges connected to the ongoing public corruption probe and is awaiting sentencing. The $2 million came in an arbitration award given to Richard Christino and his attorneys, the Powell Law Group, for injuries Christino suffered in a 2004 car crash. The lawsuit cites articles that appeared in the Philadelphia-based Legal Intelligencer, a law journal, outlining the corruption probe and its investigation, and that investigators are “actively examining uninsured/underinsured motorist arbitration cases” in Luzerne County. “The (defendants) have been unjustly enriched in connection with the Christino arbitration,” the suit claims. Mike Blazick, an attorney for the insurance company, said Monday he cannot comment on ongoing litigation. Jill Moran, an attorney for the Powell Law Group, could not be reached for comment.

Breaking Benjamin legal fight points to breakup Lead singer claims in filing that bandmates breached contract in release of remix of song. By SHEENA DELAZIO

City case step closer to end The city’s illegal immigration case moved a step closer to resolution last week and, according to Mayor Joe Yannuzzi, got the city off the hook for paying $2 million in plaintiffs’ legal fees, at least for now. The U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday recalled its October 2010 mandate that essentially upheld the decision of U.S. District Court Judge James Mundy, who in 2007 ruled the city’s Illegal Immigration Relief Act and rental registration ordinances were unconstitutional. The U.S. Supreme Court in June vacated the Third Circuit’s ruling and directed the appeals court to reconsider the case based on the Supreme Court’s May 26 decision that upheld an Arizona law similar to the employment provision in the city IIRA ordinance. The city ordinances would implement fines for landlords who knowingly rent to illegal immigrants and authorize revoking licenses of businesses that knowingly employ them. Yannuzzi said the Third Circuit can review the case, hear new oral arguments and/or review new legal briefs before making a decision.

Syria tightens city siege

CAIRO — Hosni Mubarak, 83 years old and ailing, goes on trial today on charges of corruption and ordering the killing of protesters during the18-day uprising that toppled him, and many Egyptians are celebrating the opportunity at retribution against a longtime authoritarian ruler. But they also question whether the trial will truly break with the injustices of the past. Some worry that Egypt’s new military rulers are touting the trial as proof that democrat-

troops tightened their siege S yrian on the city of Hama on Tuesday,

ic reform has been accomplished, even as activists argue that far deeper change is still needed. “I am a little worried that if Mubarak is tried and convicted people will take that to be the end of the revolution. They will say that the revolution has realized its goals. This should not be the case,” said Tareq Shalaby, a 27-year-old social media consultant who was among the hundreds of thousands of protesters who thronged Cairo’s Tahrir Square and other cities during the uprising. The prosecution of the ousted president is an unprecedented moment in the Arab world, the first time a modern Mideast leader has been put on trial fully by his own people. The closest event to it was

former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s trial, but his capture came at the hands of U.S. troops in 2003 and his special tribunal was set up with extensive consultation with American officials and international experts. Tunisia’s deposed president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, has been tried and convicted several times since his fall several weeks before Mubarak’s, but all in absentia and he remains in exile in Saudi Arabia. Mubarak, who ruled with unquestioned power for 29 years, is expected to appear during the trial sitting in a cage set up for him and his co-defendants, including his two sons and his former interior minister. The charges could bring a death sentence, traditionally carried out by hanging.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with U.S.-based Syrian democracy activists as the Obama administration weighed new sanctions on Syria. Congressional calls also mounted for action against President Bashar Assad’s regime, as the death toll from two days of military assaults on civilians Sunday and Monday neared 100. Italy recalled its ambassador to Syria “in the face of the horrible repression against the civil population” by the government, which launched a new push against protesters as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan began Monday.

Obamas set for 9/11 events President Obama and his wife, Michelle, will attend the 10th-anniversary commemoration of the three 9/11 terrorist attacks that reshaped U.S. foreign policy, the White House announced Tuesday. Press secretary Jay Carney said the Obamas will visit New York City, where the World Trade Center was destroyed. They and Vice President Joe Biden will also attend the ceremony in Shanksville, Pa., and the Obamas will appear at the Pentagon as well. Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks. Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden became a hunted man after the attacks. In May, the United States killed bin Laden in a raid on his compound in Pakistan. LOS ANGELES

Another death at Yosemite This is shaping up to be the deadliest year in Yosemite National Park in recent memory. A San Ramon, Calif., woman who fell to her death Sunday from Half Dome was the 14th person to die in the park this year. Haley LaFlamme, 26, was descending the dome’s rain-soaked granite face using mounted cables Sunday when she slipped and fell 600 feet. Yosemite typically sees five or six deaths by the end of July and 12 to 15 by the year’s end, said Kari Cobb, a spokeswoman for the park. An influx of visitors could be contributing to the surge in fatalities. Last year, the park had more than 4 million visitors for the first time since 1996. This year could bring nearly as many.

Somali militia causing problems

Gunmen and weapons bring new misery to refugees seeking relief from East African famine.

A security guard controls the line of women refugees into a food distribution center run by the World Food Programme on Tuesday at the town of Dadaab, Kenya. Dadaab, a camp designed for 90,000 people, now houses around 440,000 refugees. Almost all are from Somalia.


DHOBLEY, Somalia — Somalis with new uniforms and guns, reportedly purchased by Kenya’s government, are supposed to be guarding the Kenya-Somalia border against Islamist insurgents. But some are selling their weapons and are even preying on Somalis fleeing their famine-stricken country. This new breed of gunman and the proliferation of weapons is making the trek from Somalia’s parched landscape even more dangerous for thousands of defenseless refugees. They endure daysand weeks-long walks to refugee camps and their promise of food, but many starve along the way. Some parents arrive carrying children so malnourished they look like tiny aliens. Others arrive with empty arms, having left dead sons and daughters on the road behind them. Kenyan police arrested three deserters


from the guard force on Saturday for trying to sell their weapons in this destitute and desperate region, said Nelson Tatliti, the deputy officer in charge of the police station in at Dadaab, Kenya, site of sprawling refugee camps. “These are the ones causing problems on the border,” Tatliti said. The U.N. says tens of thousands of people have already died in the Horn of Africa drought and that more than 12 million people in the region need food

aid. Aid groups operating around Dadaab say many refugees have been attacked by gunmen, some of whom may have come from the so-called Jubaland militia. A Kenyan government spokesman did not return calls seeking comment. Kenya has long asserted that the presence of al-Shabab, an Islamist militant group that controls huge swaths of Somalia near its border, is a big security threat.

WASHINGTON — Federal officials say one person has died from salmonella poisoning that appears to be linked to eating ground turkey, but the government so far has declined to say who produced the meat or initiate a recall. Seventy-six people in 26 states have been made sick from the same strain of the disease, which the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics. The CDC did not say where the person who died became sick and released no details about the death. The illnesses date back to March, and the CDC said Monday that cultures of ground turkey from four retail locations between March 7 and June 27 showed salmonella contamination. The agency said preliminary information showed that three of the samples have been linked to the same production establishment, but did not name the retailers or the manufacturers. The Agriculture Department oversees meat safety and would be the agency to announce a recall. The department sent out an alert about the illnesses late last week telling consumers to properly cook their turkey, which can decrease the chances of salmonella poisoning. But the department has not given consumers any further warnings about the source of the tainted meat. The states with the highest number sickened were Michigan and Ohio, 10 illnesses each, while nine illnesses were reported in Texas. Illinois had seven, California six and Pennsylvania five.


Nixon TV papers for sale Some advice for presidential candidates, culled from a 1967 critique of then-candidate Richard Nixon: Avoid greasy hair products. Don’t clench your fists. And for goodness sake, drop the zombie routine. That consultant’s 10-page report — featuring dozens of passages underlined by Nixon — was saved by the former president’s longtime joke writer, Paul Keyes, and is up for auction in New Hampshire. Keyes was an Emmy Award-winning comedy writer and producer for some of TV’s classic shows, including “The Jack Paar Show,” “The Dean Martin Comedy Hour” and “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In.” In 1968, he cajoled Nixon to appear on “Laugh-In” where the presidential candidate delivered the show’s signature line, “Sock it to me.”

Desperate ailing Indonesians turn to train-track therapy By MICHAEL HOLTZ Associated Press

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Ignoring the red-and-white danger sign, Sri Mulyati walks slowly to the train tracks outside Indonesia’s bustling capital, lies down and stretches her body across the rails. Like the nearly dozen others lined up along the track, the 50year-old diabetes patient has all but given up on doctors and can’t afford the expensive medicines they prescribe. In her mind, she has only one option left: Electric therapy. “I’ll keep doing this until I’m completely cured,” said Mulya-

ti, twitching visibly as an oncoming passenger train sends an extra rush of current racing through her body. She leaps from tracks as it approaches and then, after the last carriage rattles slowly by, climbs back into position. Pseudo-medical treatments are wildly popular in many parts of Asia. In Indonesia, chronic funding shortages and chaotic decentralization efforts since the 1998 ouster of longtime dictator Suharto have left many disillusioned with the state-sponsored health system, said Marius Widjajarta, chairman of the

Indonesian Health Consumers Empowerment Foundation. Medical experts say there is no evidence lying on the rails does any good. But Mulyati insists it provides more relief for her symptoms — high-blood pressure, sleeplessness and high cholesterol — than any doctor has since she was first diagnosed with diabetes 13 years ago. She turned to train track therapy last year after hearing a rumor about an ethnic Chinese AP PHOTO man who was partially paralyzed by a stroke going to the Villagers lie on a railway track for electric therapy in Indonetracks to kill himself, but in- sia. People believe that the electric current from the track could cure various diseases. stead finding himself cured.

Yannuzzi said. County 911 Director David Parsnik said he believes the center will be able to handle the additional call volume without adding more staff. People who live and work in Hazleton will benefit because 911 calls won’t have to fielded and then funneled to the city for dispatching, he said. “They’ll get a quick response time, and it will get police out more because they won’t have to worry about dispatching,” Parsnik said, noting that no problems were encountered when the county started handling all Kingston calls. County 911 dispatchers will receive training about the city’s layout and police procedures, Parsnik said. The county has a language translation service to assist with callers who don’t speak English, he said. The Hazleton area has a significant population of Spanishspeaking residents. The county’s dispatchers are trained to walk callers through CPR, bleeding control, childbirth and many other emergencies, he said. Pinpointing callers’ locations will also be easier with a new $2.5 million 911 Computer Assisted Dispatch (CAD) system that will be ready for use in November, 911 officials say. With the new CAD, detailed maps that show topography and landmarks in the area of the caller will instantly pop up on dispatchers’ screens. The current system requires several steps to get to maps, and the maps are not as detailed and comprehensive, officials say. 911 quality assurance public awareness specialist Joe Lynch said county dispatchers will monitor Hazleton police calls before the switch to become familiar with city police operations and the geography. The county is “very fortunate” because Hazleton Police Chief Robert Ferdinand supports the change, Lynch said. “It’s a very amicable switchover,” Lynch said.

Fincke and Klepaski on July 13 and an email Burnley sent to the other two men. “By email dated May 15, 2011, (Burnley) dismissed (Fincke and Klepaski) from the band for ‘cause’… ,” the June filing by Burnley said. In the June filing, Burnley said the band’s “Blow Me Away” song was written in 2004 by himself with “no contributions” from either Fincke or Klepaski, who are known professionally as Aaron Fink and Mark James. The band released two albums in 2006 and 2009, and a “partnership agreement” was entered into with the three men in January 2009. That agreement, Burnley said, contains an arbitration provision requiring any disputes relating to the agreement be settled through binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in Luzerne County. On March 10, 2010, Burnley said in the filing, the band made two recordings to release a new version of “Blow Me Away” and a collector’s edition album. In May, Burnley said, Fincke and Klepaski gave Hollywood Records permission to release the “Blow Me Away” single and accompanying album in order to “receive $100,000 out of a new $150,000 offer.” At no time, the filing says, did either Fincke or Klepaski notify Burnley or his representative. Two days later, Fincke and Klepaski were “dismissed,” according to court papers.

needed to sell the property to him. The city’s release said the sales cancellation took effect July 22. “In light of outstanding title issues, a condition of sale to any potential buyer, it is not feasible to continue with the sale at the current time,” the release said. “The city has extricated itself from the sale agreement on those grounds. No decision has been made as to any future use of this property.” Leighton could not immediately be reached for follow-up questions. Glodzik could not immediately be reached for comment on several attempts. The school board meeting is set to start at noon. Board President Joe Moran could not be reached on several attempts in recent days. School Board member Maryanne Toole said Tuesday that shewilllistentothecity’spresentation before making a decision. Forgiving taxes is difficult because the school district is in a budget crisis, she said. However, Toole said she also supports efforts to get properties developed and back on the tax rolls. “It’s like a Catch-22,” Toole said. The board rejected the city’s first request for tax forgiveness in September 2010 largely due to concerns raised by taxpayers about the sale, she said. Toole said she supports the public ad-

practices before being contacted,” and that the health care giant “had voluntarily refunded over $510,000 in overpayments it received for other unrelated services.” Geisinger touted its compliance program as including “ongoing reviews of medical coding,” and said that, in this case, the facility “retained independent coding experts who concluded Geisinger’s coding staff had made reasonable determinations” that the reimbursement requests were appropriate. As a result, no employees face disciplinary action, Jolley said. The incident “was more a difference in interpretation of Modifier 25 than it was an error in reporting.” Geisinger agreed to pay the money “while not admitting liability or accepting the government’s contention,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The agreement was not available Tuesday but will be made public, most likely today, according to Heidi Havens, media and community outreach consultant for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Middle District of Pennsylvania

vertising of property to try to obtain the highest price. “That was one of the reasons we voted no, because there were too many question marks concerning the deal,” Toole said. If the taxes are not forgiven or paid by the city, the property could be listed in a Sept. 22 upset sale for properties that have not yet been listed at a previous backtax sale. Buyers of these properties must pay off all back taxes and government liens and might be responsible for other non-government liens or debts tied to the properties. Properties that don’t sell at upset are then listed at “free-andclear” sales, in which liens and back taxes are forgiven. Bidding typically starts around $800 or less at this stage because buyers are required to pay only what it cost the county for legal and advertising fees. The property carries about $446,825 in back taxes, with a portion owed to Luzerne County.

The county commissioners had voted in 2006 to forgive back taxes to that point, which means the city may also have to seek additional forgiveness from the county. First National Community Bank in Dunmore conveyed the property to the city for $1 in April 2008. The bank had obtained title to the property after Old River Road Bakery Inc. defaulted on its mortgage. The Old River Road Bakery became a local fixture after its opening in 1950 but closed in January 1999 after a steady loss of customers to supermarket competitors. Leighton has said he’s eager to execute a sale because the roof on the rear portion of the property is “going to collapse.”

Burnley requests $1.2 million in monetary damages in the arbitration action. In response, Fincke and Klepaski filed a complaint on July 13 stating they “dispute and strictly deny” the allegations made by Burnley in his June filing. Fincke and Klepaski said that on June 1, 2010, Burnley told them he is “disabled or infirm to the extent that he could no longer perform his duties in connection with performing live concert appearances” and that his “disability or infirmity” terminates the alleged agreement. Because of the alleged termination of the agreement, Fincke and Klepaski said in their filing, the American Arbitration Association in Luzerne County has no jurisdiction over the matter because there is no valid arbitration agreement. The two men asked that Burnley’s arbitration request be stopped and/or dismissed. On July 29, Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury denied Fincke and Klepaski’s request to dismiss the arbitration filing. The band, formed in 2001, is a multi-platinum, modern rock band, based out of Wilkes-Barre. The new “Best Of” album, scheduled for release on Aug. 16, is set to include the new remix of the song "Blow Me Away.” Attorneys for Burnley, Fincke and Klepaski could not be reached for comment.

Section’s residents briefed on road

People who must use Weiss Road say its condition is deteriorating. By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

BEAR CREEK TWP. – Residents of Bear Creek Township who live along a road owned by Dennison Township got a chance to voice their concerns about the condition of that road when the Bear Creek Township supervisors held their monthly meeting at White Haven Poconos on Monday evening. In the second of two meetings held in the more remote portions of Bear Creek Township, the supervisors addressed the condition of Weiss Road. The road is the only point of access to the homes of a small population of Bear Creek Township residents and is the subject of a long-standing maintenance agreement between Dennison and Bear Creek townships. Chairman Gary Zingaretti presented a PowerPoint slide show on the history of the arrangement, which calls for Bear Creek to provide maintenance of the road. The supervisors explained the cost of that maintenance and outlined the legal options they have investigated as well as the alternatives they have reviewed for taking care of the road, which residents say has deteriorated and is in need of significant repair. Residents were assured that the supervisors have initiated requests for proposals to have the road or part of the road tarred and chipped and are looking into incorporating the road into the township’s regular road maintenance program. In a related matter, the supervisors discussed the difficulty of funding all the road maintenance needed throughout the township, noting that Bear Creek receives only about $44 in revenue for every $100,000 of assessed property value. The large amount of township land owned by the Army Corps of Engineers, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and allocated as game lands limits the township’s tax revenue, supervisors said. In other business, the supervisors: • Noted that the Plains Township and the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority have confirmed their systems have sufficient capacity to handle Bear Creek Township’s sewage. The proposed sewage plan is now before the planning boards of Bear Creek Township, Plains Township and Luzerne County. • Discussed the recent loan of two members of the road crew and two trucks to Plymouth Township to assist with flood clean-up. • Approved the request of high school student Sam Andrews to use the Little League field for his senior project. • Addressed concerns about blighted properties owned by banks as the result of foreclosures, directing the code enforcement officer to work with the banks to make sure the properties are maintained appropriately.

DALLAS TWP. – A township official announced Tuesday an agreement with Williams Gathering LLC to construct part of a natural gas gathering line is back on, and a potential agreement with another company, Chief Gathering LLC, may also be in the works. At the supervisors’ July 19 meeting, Solicitor Thomas Brennan said negotiations with Williams about its planned pipeline project were at an impasse. Brennan said the reason for the stalemate was related to whether natural gas pipelines were addressed in the township’s subdivision and land development ordinance. “Subsequently, after the meet-

The next board of supervisors meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 16 in the municipal building.

ing, I was contacted by Williams and was told they intend to vigorously pursue subdivision and land development approval,” he said. Brennan admitted the company felt that announcing an impasse was “premature.” He also said that shortly after last month’s meeting Chief had contacted Brennan to discuss a potential agreement about its pipeline plans. “From my perspective, I would address the same points and principles with Chief that I have with Williams,” he said.

Both companies are planning pipelines from Susquehanna County through Wyoming County to end in Dallas Township, where both will tap into the Transco interstate pipeline near the Dallas School District campus. Both companies also have plans for metering stations to be built near the Transco tap-in site. Continued zoning hearings for Chief’s application for special exceptions will be held at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 22 and 30 in Insalaco Hall at Misericordia University. Williams has not requested a zoning hearing at this time, but the company has begun to lay out its pipeline plans before the Township Planning Commission. That group will meet at 7 p.m. Aug. 9 in the municipal building. The board also heard comments from Northmoreland Township resident Wayne Weaver, who has leased land to Chief and has rightof-way easements with Williams. Williams was recently granted final approval from the Wyoming County Planning Commission to build a metering station on 5½ acres of land off Schoolhouse Road. Weaver said the company’s projects will benefit the area, and he didn’t understand how the township’s zoning laws could hold up the project of “multibillion-dollar corporations.” But resident Duke Barrett said “Why do (the gas companies) get to tell the majority of the people here, as opposed to the minority of those who have leased, what goes on? That’s not democracy.”

Man pleads guilty in robbery, thefts

Richard E. Harris, 45, will be sentenced in October and ordered to pay restitution. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A Pittston man pleaded guilty Tuesday to several different charges related to the robbery of a local Turkey Hill store and to two other thefts. Richard E. Harris, 45, of Columbus Avenue, entered the plea beforeLuzerneCountyJudgeJoseph Cosgrove to charges of criminaltrespassing,theftbyunlawful taking, robbery and retail theft. Harris was scheduled to stand trial on charges relating to three different cases Tuesday but opted to enter a guilty plea. Cosgrove said Harris will be sentenced on Oct. 26 and will then be ordered to pay more than $4,100 in restitution. Assistant District Attorney Dick Hughes said he and fellow prosecutor ADA Alexis Falvello do not object to Harris receiving a concurrent sentence, as op-

posed to a consecutive sentence on each charge. Harris was represented by attorney John Donovan. According to court papers, on May 12, 2010, Harris entered a Hughes Street home with another person and removed copper pipes from the residence, smashing a window in the process. That same day, Wilkes-Barre police said in a criminal complaint, Harris walked into the Turkey Hill on Hazle Avenue to purchase a bag of peanuts. When Harris went to the cash register, prosecutors say, he reached over the counter and grabbed a stack of $10 bills before fleeing the area. More recently, prosecutors said, on June 13, Harris entered the Maine Source food and party warehouse in Forty Fort, put four boxes of mozzarella cheese totaling $647 into a cart and left the store without paying for the items. Police said they stopped a vehicle driven by Harris along Route 11 in Plymouth. Harris later told police he sold the cheese to two other people.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I’ve tried taking my ideas to city council and the mayor, but nobody listened.” Betsy Summers The Wilkes-Barre resident, 54, this week announced her intent to run as a Libertarian Party candidate for city mayor. She outlined a 10-point platform that includes cutting the mayor’s salary by $10,000 and eventually making it a part-time post.


If royalty pays taxes, then so should our rich


s I write this letter, I am watching the dog-and-pony show in Washington. Both sides agree to cut programs for the middle class and the poor. The sticking point apparently is that our president wants to tax corporations and the wealthy. Everyone knows we don’t tax big corporations so they can make profits and create jobs, but not American jobs. Apple Computers said it has made a $25 billion profit so far this year making its product in China. Also, to all the politicians in Washington saying cuts have to be made: Not one of you has said, let’s cut our salary first to set an example for the people. Cut your salary first, Mr. Congressman. Then maybe we will respect you. And when you come up for re-election next year, please don’t say, I vow if elected to create jobs and lower taxes. We don’t believe it anymore. And remember this: The queen of England pays taxes. Why can’t our rich do the same?


Inadequate deal after long debate


ERE’S HOW America spent its summer vacation: Congress dithered. The president dallied. The clock ticked away. And, as the end approached, Americans were left looking at what U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri named a “Satan sandwich,” adding: “If you lift the bun, you will not like what you see.” As the debt ceiling fight in our nation’s capital looked to be ending Monday, the result had to be far less than satisfying for all involved. The deal cuts $900 billion in spending over a decade. And it calls for $1.2 trillion more in cuts to automatically kick in unless a bipartisan committee can come up with another plan. But, as it stands, it’s less of a deal than Americans had a right to expect half a year ago, after the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles defi-

cit reduction commission laid out a basic plan that would have better protected the poor, maintained the middle class and demanded more of those people who can most afford to pay more. Simpson-Bowles called for sacrifice from all Americans, but it was a fair and shared sacrifice. Now we’ve moved to targeted attacks on the suffering. Unbending “no tax” pledges from the tea party right replaced reason. Led by GOP House Speaker John Boehner’s dishonest argument that the current system of taxation leads to job creation (if so, where are the jobs?), the American government opted to quibble about ways to hurt the poor and middle class. And all this after months of negotiations? Talk about wasted summers. Kansas City Star

Support bill to enact 1-year drilling moratorium


he public is growing weary of our politicians and their continued failure to take meaningful action to protect us from the impacts of Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling. When the residents apply enough pressure, the politicians quickly put together yet another bill that will go nowhere! They get a ton of press coverage, the residents get a false sense of security, and the bill goes on the pile with the rest and collects dust. The residents of Harveys Lake worked extremely hard for more than a year in an attempt to have our borough council adopt an ordinance to ban gas drilling activities here. The ordinance was similar to those passed in Pittsburgh and other communities. Our council ignored the strong will of its residents and failed to adopt the ordinance. I was quite surprised to see a recent letter to the editor, which was actually a copy of a letter sent to the lieutenant governor by our council chairman, Fran Kopko, supporting HB1346 and declaring his concern about our safety in regard to the gas drilling. I attended the next council meeting to ask council why it chose HB1346 from among dozens of bills regarding gas drilling. I was told that state Rep. Karen Boback asked them to write this letter. Harrisburg has failed us miserably by not passing much-needed, updated regu-

lations to the Oil and Gas Act, including increased fines and penalties for violations, setback requirements for drilling near water sources, full disclosure of chemicals and the implementation of a reasonable severance tax. They’ve allowed 3,000 permits (and counting) to be issued for Marcellus Shale gas drilling, all under antiquated laws. I suggest everyone, including all of our local governing bodies, support HB233, which would allow us to hit the pause button on all new drilling permits by enacting a one-year moratorium. It would allow time for our state officials to get their act together and pass meaningful legislation that will put protections in place. There are far too many unresolved issues and mounting evidence of environmental damage, and we cannot afford to stall any longer. Michelle T. Boice Harveys Lake

No matter the culture, breast-feeding beneficial


here are many cultural traditions that can influence the feeding practices of newborns; however, the biological basis of breast-feeding ignores the cultural heritage of the child’s parents. “Talk to me! Breastfeeding – a 3D Experience” is the theme of World Breastfeeding Week, celebrated through Sunday. This theme encompasses the depth and texture of the many facets of a new mother’s daily life. Even though the cultural message might differ, the biological reality of breast-feeding benefits from close and frequent contact between mother and baby. Beginning immediately after birth, a newborn infant might need up to 12 breast-feeding contacts every 24 hours. Within a few short weeks nursing mothers are eager to resume many of their usual activities with baby along. A baby has a need and a right to be fed, even in public. This kind of uninterrupted contact contributes to maintaining the recommended exclusive breast-feeding until the middle of baby’s first year. The benefits of breast-feeding with complementary foods continue for mother and baby well after the baby’s first birthday. Nurse and breast-feeding expert Amy Spangler has said, “While breast-feeding may not seem the right choice for every


parent, it is the best choice for every baby.” For more information on how breastfeeding can work for you and your baby, contact The Luzerne County Breastfeeding Coalition at (570) 808-5534. The coalition is comprised of representatives from Northeastern Pennsylvania whose mission is to establish breast-feeding as the cultural norm in our community. Karen L. Shaw Member Luzerne County Breastfeeding Coalition and Greater Pittston La Leche League Falls

Nation cannot afford to lose position of power


s we continue to borrow money from other countries, will we not become a servant to the leader? The economic debt in our country can lead to a loss of military power, which we already have seen, thus causing our nation to lose respect worldwide. Disobeying God’s laws is our Achilles’ heel. Unless we turn to God, who gave us these powers and blessings, we will see a decline in this once-great nation.

Sam Jones Nanticoke

Stop blaming the rich for country’s distress


nother letter in the newspaper about the need to raise taxes for the rich because “it’s the fair thing to do.” What’s fair about that concept at all? Is it fair that the people who contribute the most tax dollars are the same ones who use the least amount? Is it fair that those who contribute the least amount use the most? The writer mentioned that a 6 percent sales tax hurts him more than it does Donald Trump. I ask whether his purchasing power is anywhere near that of Trump. You wanted fair, but want an unfair sales tax system now? It’s time people stop blaming the rich for problems. We like to concentrate on what people have and how unfair it is that we don’t. Has it occurred to people that some of these so-called “rich” might have just worked hard for what they have? Yes, I said the dirty little words: “work” and “hard.” You can’t call on the people who spend the money, create the jobs and support our taxation system to share more of the burden, because sooner or later there will be a straw that breaks the camel’s back. President Obama once said we need to “eat our peas.” The only green I see isn’t peas, it’s envy. It needs to stop for the sake of America. Paul J.M. Stebbins Jr. West Pittston








New super committee faces tough debt decisions Six Democrats and six Republicans will have to find at least $1.2 trillion in cuts. By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The budget battle is not over. Many of the most nettlesome questions have been left for a new bipartisan super committee of 12 lawmakers whose task will be to find at least $1.2 trillion more in deficit cuts spread over the next decade. The six Democratic and six Republican lawmakers — equally divided between the House and Senate and to be chosen in the next two weeks — is sure to experience the same ideological divisions over tax increases and cuts to programs like Medicare that bedeviled efforts involving top lawmakers and the White House this year. But there’s a real price to be

That’s the principle I’ll be fighting for during the next phase of this process.” Meanwhile, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday that Moody’s Investors Service said the United States will retain its triple-A bond rating. But the agency put a “negative” outlook on the rating, raising the specter of a future downgrade. The agency assigned a negative outlook to the triple-A rating to indicate that there is still a risk of a downgrade if the government’s fiscal discipline weakens or the economy deteriorates significantly. During debate on the Senate floor, even supporters were similarly unsatisfied with the result of all the weeks of acrimonious Washington deal-making.

They include Medicare, the Medicaid health plan for the poor and disabled, Social Security and veterans’ retirement benefits, among others. The first place to start looking for savings is the work of a group led by Vice President Joe Biden that tried to find savings for the debt ceiling bill. That group broke apart over Democratic demands on taxes but had made decent headway in developing a consensus package of cuts to programs like farm subsidies, federal pensions and military health benefits, and cuts to Medicare providers like skilled nursing facilities and home health care providers. Another savings option would be to use a smaller inflation adjustment when calculating Social Security cost-of-living adjustments and federal retirement benefits. This also would raise revenue by easing taxpayers into higher tax brackets more quickly.

paid if the committee deadlocks or if either the House or Senate rejects the panel’s recommendations: the threat of deep, acrossthe-board spending cuts that would strike GOP priorities like defense and programs for the poor that are priorities for Democrats. The cuts wouldn’t hit until January 2013, but their potential impact would have affected interest groups like defense contractors and farmers gulping. “The answer’s pretty obvious. Hanging over the head of the joint committee is this trigger that is pretty drastic,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., a driving force behind the super committee concept contained in the debt ceiling legislation President Barack Obama signed Tuesday. The panel’s target is to find $1.2 trillion to $1.5 trillion in budget cuts over the coming decade, including interest savings. Democrats insist it will have to

take an approach that balances tax revenues with spending cuts. Republicans promise that taxes are off the table. That in itself is a recipe for continued gridlock. Cynics predict the committee will deadlock just as similar panels have done previously. But underneath the partisanship that has consumed Washington recently is bipartisan spadework undertaken by Obama’s deficit panel and the Senate’s “Gang of Six.” And unlike the deficit commission, which required approval by a supermajority of 14 of the 18 members, the congressional super committee needs just a majority vote. “The joint committee is not going to gridlock, in my opinion,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said. “The joint committee is designed to function and to tackle some of the very difficult problems that we have been unwilling or unable to deal with.” The debt and budget measure

enacted Tuesday already contains more than $900 billion in cuts over the coming decade to the annual operating budgets of Cabinet agencies responsible for thousands of programs funded by Congress each year in appropriations bills.

That means to find the additional savings the new committee will scour the so-called mandatory side of the budget — programs whose spending levels basically run on autopilot because they’re set by funding formulas and eligibility criteria.

Pennsylvania’s senators split on the plan. Robert Casey, DScranton, voted for the plan, while Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, voted against it. “On this matter my conscience is conflicted,” said Senate Assistant Majority Leader Richard Durbin, D-Ill. “If this bill should fail, we will default on our nation’s debt ... terrible things will ensue.” But he also worried about its trillions of dollars in spending cuts and “all of the consequences on innocent people in America.” The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, was a bit more upbeat. “We’ve had to settle for less than we wanted, but what we’ve achieved is in no way insignificant. And we did it because we had something Democrats didn’t. Republicans may only control one half of one third of the government in Washington. But the American people agreed with us on the nature of the problem,” he said. “And if you’re spending yourself into oblivion, the solution isn’t to spend more, it’s to spend less.” The Senate action followed the Monday vote in the House, when a bipartisan majority also approved the deal. In the House,174 House Republicans and 95 Demo-

crats voted for the measure, and 66 Republicans and 95 Democrats voted against it. The mood in the Senate was similar to that in the House. “To say the legislation before us is not ideal is truly an understatement,” said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich. But he added, “despite its many flaws, the legislation must pass.” Conservatives and liberals, though, differed on their reasons for opposing the bill. “At the end of the day, this bill allows Washington to continue business as usual in the irresponsible way it spends hard-earned tax dollars,” said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla. From the left, Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., had a different complaint. “The wealthiest people in this country and the largest corporations who are doing phenomenally well today are not being asked to contribute one penny in shared sacrifice toward deficit reduction,” he said. The agreement would cut deficits by $917 billion over 10 years, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. Those reductions would allow the debt limit to be raised by $900 billion, which is ex-

pected to be enough to last through early next year. About $350 billion would come from defense spending. The rest would come from cuts to a variety of domestic programs. Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security wouldn’t be cut. A second series of reductions, totaling as much as $1.5 trillion, would be subject to a vote by late December. A special bipartisan joint congressional committee will recommend specifics. The committee must make recommendations by Nov. 23, and Congress must vote on them by Dec. 23. If those recommendations aren’t approved on up-or-down, non-amendable votes in Congress, programs would be cut automatically across the board — half from defense, half from nondefense — starting in 2013. Social Security, Medicaid, military and civilian pensions, and most lowincome programs would be exempt. Medicare cuts would be restricted to payments to providers, and limited. Once the reductions are made, the debt limit would go up by at least another $1.2 trillion, which is expected to allow the government sufficient borrowing authority through 2012.

When the taxi driver reached the destination, he was struck in the face with a pistol and robbed of his cell phone. Police were joined by Hanover Township officers who canvassed the area of Goose Island in Wilkes-Barre and Franklin Junction in Hanover Township. Police spotted the three on Monahan Court in Hanover Township, which initiated a manhunt. Matthews, of Hazle Avenue, WilkesBarre, dropped the pistol, which police recovered. Police said Matthews and the 15-yearold were quickly captured. The 13-yearold boy was apprehended at Hazle Avenue and Blackman Street, police said. The taxi driver was treated at WilkesBarre General Hospital. Police said Matthews and the two juveniles will be charged with robbery, simple assault and criminal conspiracy to commit robbery. “They can kiss their moms and girlfriends goodbye,” Burgit said about the three. “I’m taking it all the way.

During that period, the rate for all workers was at or below 0.5 per 100,000 workers. Taxi drivers’ homicide rates were between 21 and 33 times higher than the national average for all workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Roy Oswalt pitches in Moosic

WASHINGTON — The complex debt-ceiling and deficit-reduction agreement includes the following highlights: • The compromise raises the government’s borrowing limit in stages by at least $2.1 trillion and up to $2.4 trillion, while providing a dollar-for-dollar exchange in spending cuts. The package would resolve the issue until 2013, after the presidential election. • The framework of the deal cuts spending more than it increases borrowing authority and does not raise taxes. It also protects several programs from cuts, including Social Security, Medicaid, veterans’ benefits and pensions, civil and military pay, and programs for women, infants and children. Medicare would be cut no more than 2 percent, with the cuts falling on payments to doctors, hospitals and other providers of medical services. • Passage of the proposal would give President Barack Obama authority to immediately increase the debt by $400 billion. It also establishes procedures to raise the debt ceiling by an additional $500 billion as soon as September for a total of $900 billion. • The initial increases are offset by $917 billion in spending cuts through caps on discretionary spending through 2021. • The subsequent increase would be $1.2 trillion to $1.5 trillion, de-

Each driver conducts about 25 fares a shift, Burgit said. “This is nonsense, this has got to stop,” Burgit said. “Taxi drivers don’t make a lot of money. When they get a few calls under their belt, they make night deposits and day deposits. But these guys are going out pulling guns and they’re going to commit such a heinous crime against these guys trying to make a living and trying to support

their families. “To be pulling a gun out for $25 or $40, you got to be kidding me,” Burgit said. Yolanda Santos, who has been a driver for Burgit’s City Taxi for about two years, said she does not feel threatened when she provides service. “It saddens me, it really does,” she said about the latest robbery. “I don’t know what is going on these days. I’m not scared, I’m not threatened at all. Our dispatchers are really good; they know our locations.” Burgit said he is considering installing barriers in his vehicles that would separate passengers and the driver. He is also considering cameras in each taxi.

pending on the work of a 12-member bipartisan congressional committee, which will identify future deficit reductions that are approved by Congress and the president. • The joint committee, six Democrats and six Republicans, is charged with making a recommendation on further deficit reductions by Nov. 23 and can consider tax reform as well as cuts in spending. If the committee produces a proposal, it is guaranteed an up-or-down vote in both chambers of Congress, without amendments, by Dec. 23. But even if Congress approves it, the president retains veto power. • Actions taken by the joint committee could trigger several potential scenarios. Among them: • If the bipartisan committee agrees on at least $1.5 trillion in deficit reductions and the legislation is enacted by Congress, the debt ceiling will rise by $1.5 trillion. • If the total is between $1.2 trillion and $1.5 trillion, the debt limit increases dollar for dollar. • If the amount is less than $1.2 trillion or the committee gridlocks and cannot agree on a proposal, it will trigger a debt ceiling increase of $1.2 trillion and across-theboard cuts totaling the same amount. Those cuts would be split 50-50 between defense and nondefense spending, with the exception of the programs listed above.

Tiger is ready to roar again By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

AKRON, Ohio — Tiger Woods was on the practice range just as the sun began to rise Tuesday over Firestone, his first time on a PGA Tour golf course in nearly three months. Even as the season heads toward a conclusion, Woods can’t wait to get started. “I’m excited to compete, to play,” Woods said. “And hopefully, to win the tournament.”

Tiger Woods tees off during practice for the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, Tuesday.

That part about Woods hasn’t changed. It’s everything else in the world of golf he once ruled that is so much different. Woods showed up at the Bridgestone Invitational at No. 28, his lowest world ranking since the start of his first full season on the PGA Tour. He has a new caddie — at least temporarily — in Bryon Bell, a childhood friend who now heads up a design business that is not getting much work these days with a downturn in the industry. He no longer is the dominant force in golf, having gone 20 months since his last

win at the Australian Masters. For Woods, however, the biggest change is how he feels about his health. “The great thing is I don’t feel a thing,” Woods said. “It feels solid. It feels stable. No pain. That’s one of the reasons why I took as long as I did to come back, is that I want to get to this point where I can go ahead and start playing golf again like this. It’s been a very long time, and it feels good to go out there today and hit balls like this, go practice and feel nothing and See TIGER, Page 4B


Looking into the future


Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s Greg Golson breaks his bat while hitting Tuesday night against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in Moosic.

Highly-touted lefty Banuelos has strong debut for SWB


MOOSIC – Yankees fans have hopes of seeing the battery of Manny Banuelos and Jesus Montero thriving in New York for many years to come. On Tuesday at PNC Field, a glimpse of the hopeful future for the New York Yankees and their fans was on display for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Banuelos, a 20-year-old starting pitcher, and Montero, a 21year-old catcher, worked together for the first time in Triple-A





and both looked good for Banuelos’ first start above Double-A. Banuelos, who became the youngest SWB Yankee player in the five-year history of the team at 20 years, 142 days old, didn’t

factor in the decision after being pulled when the game was tied after five innings. Montero also helped the Yankees to a 3-2 victory over Lehigh Valley, going 3for-4 with a home run. With the win, SWB moves within three games of the firstplace IronPigs in the I.L. North. “Two great, future New York Yankees right there,” New York general manager Brian Cashman said. “It was a great win for this team tonight.” Banuelos, the top-ranked lefthanded pitcher in the Yankees

organization, struggled with control in the first inning when he allowed a one-out single then walked the next two batters to load the bases. But he struck out Delwyn Young then got Erik Kratz to pop out to end the IronPigs threat. The 5-foot-11, 155-pounder settled down after that, only walking one more the rest of his outing. On the night, he threw 100 pitches, 62 for strikes. He fanned eight, while allowing seven hits and two runs in five innings. Sev-

en of his eight strikeouts were swinging, and six of them were on his fastball, which was clocked as high as 93 mph. He hit the corners well with his fastball and also with his breaking ball, which was clocked around 82 mph. “I controlled my nerves and I wasn’t nervous,” Banuelos said. “I was relaxed and that’s it, just pitch.” The eventual game-winning run came across in the bottom of See YANKEES, Page 4B



Legursky, others must wait to play

League goes to court against players union

By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

LATROBE — Doug Legursky can’t wait to change his shoes. It’s nothing personal. The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman has no issue with the black-andwhite cross-trainers he sported on the practice field at Saint Vincent College on Tuesday morning. It’s just he’d rather be in cleats. He’s healthy. He’s happy after re-signing with the Steelers last Friday. The only thing he isn’t is playing. “It’s pretty weird,” Legursky said. “I’ve been playing football 19 years, and this is the first time I’ve been OK and not able to practice.” Welcome to the truncated — and complicated — 2011 NFL free agency period.

new CBA. Commissioner David Stern told The Associated Press in a phone interview that an unproductive meeting Monday with union executive director Billy Hunter, president Derek Fisher and others confirmed to the league it needed to take this action. “There doesn’t seem to be a seriousness of purpose to the players and we keep reading about they’re considering decertification, and the agents are meeting with Billy to talk about decertification, Derek was quoted as saying it’s an option on the table,” Stern said.

Trying to head off the chance of an antitrust lawsuit from the NBA Players Association, the league went ahead and beat the union to court. The NBA filed two claims against the NBAPA on Tuesday— an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board and a lawsuit in federal district court in New York. The NBA accused the players of being uncooperative in negotiations toward a new collective bargaining agreement by making “more than two dozen” threats to dissolve their union and sue the league under antitrust laws to secure more favorable terms in a See NBA, Page 4B


U.S. restart brings hope for change Saying that Monday’s media event introducing Juergen Klinsmann as the U.S. men’s national team soccer coach should have happened 41⁄2 years ago doesn’t matter now. It would just be re-emphasizing what I wrote should have happened immediately after the 2006 World Cup. And patting ourselves on the back is such bad form. But I did write last September that U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati was selling fool’s gold when he rehired Bob Bradley after the 2010 World Cup. I said Bradley was stale and had no new ideas to move U.S. soccer forward. I mentioned that Klinsmann would have been a better choice. So, yes, as a fan of U.S. soccer, I’m excited that Klinsmann, the German World Cup striker and coach turned Southern California dude, is finally the coach, following Bradley’s firing last week. Not, however, as excited as I would have been 41⁄2 years ago. Had he gotten the job in 2006, we’d already know if the formula Klinsmann used to revamp Germany for the 2006 World Cup would work here. With a group of players in their prime, Klinsmann’s fresh ideas might have been all that was needed to vault the U.S. team forward. In 2011, Klinsmann takes over an aging roster that has been mentally beaten down from trying to match high expectations and disheartened by being recently kicked off the top perch in CONCACAF by archrival Mexico. It’s not too late, but the challenge has certainly gotten tougher. With the U.S. team starting qualification for the 2014 World Cup against Jamaica next June, Klinsmann has less than a year to sort out, revamp and pull things together before it gets serious. “I kind of know already most of the players from watching them,” said Klinsmann, who will make his national team debut next Wednesday in a friendly against Mexico at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the team. “They lost a Gold Cup final against a very good Mexican team that over the last couple of years became one of the top 10 teams in the world. I think when you come into a situation like this, you analyze each individual player, you analyze the team, you analyze the program. You build basically on what was built before. And if you look back on the last 20 years in this country, a lot has been built.” Klinsmann is the perfect hybrid coach: an international with awareness of America. “I’m not going to come in and play ‘the European guy’ because I have lived here for 13 years,” he said. “I know about certain issues around here. Having lived and played abroad, Italy, England, France, obviously Germany, I have my own ideas of how to move the program forward. I will step-by-step introduce some ideas that I have, but always double-check if it suits the American game.” Whatever the American style evolves into under Klinsmann, one can only hope that it finally embraces and exploits this country’s greatest strength: our ethnic diversity. While Bradley was often taken to task about the lack of usage of players of Hispanic See CHANGE, Page 4B

New York shuts down Santana By STEVE POPPER The Record

NEW YORK — It is the word that Sandy Alderson has been loath to use, but he could not find any way around it Tuesday. He had to admit that Johan Santana has suffered a setback and the reality is that more than at any point this year, the possibility is that the Mets won’t see Santana until next spring. After the good news of a successful 33-pitch outing last Thursday in his first minor league rehab assignment, approximately 10 months after he had undergone surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder, Santana was scheduled to start again tonight. But it was pushed back a day when he didn’t feel right Monday and when he again felt discomfort Tuesday it was decided to shut him down and instead fly him to New York for an examination with team doctors Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery. “There’s some lingering discomfort in his shoulder and we want to make sure that’s checked out before going any further with the rehab,” Alderson said. “Because he’s coming up, the earliest that he will be able to pitch — because we’ll be taking him the rehab Sunday — would be Monday. “I really can’t comment on the severity of this discomfort it’s one of the reasons why we want to have him seen by the doctor but there is some there. I think more than anything else, Johan would like to have it checked it out before he proceeds.” Santana started the 30-day clock on his rehab assignment with last week’srehab start. But if he is able to pitch again, it will be reset at 30 days again. This will remove a shot of him returning in late August and push any chance of a major league appearance if all goes well with the check-up — into September. “It was a day-by-day proposition to see how he came back from his original three innings and I think he has less confidence than he might have had,” Alderson said. “So I think it’s prudent to have it checked out, and it will be either reassuring or we’ll step back and see where we are.” But it also opened up the real possibility that he won’t pitch again this year. While the Mets have put timetables out since spring projecting returns of mid-June to early July and then pointed to August, the most important thing is his future. The Mets still owe Santana $55 million over the next two seasons including a buyout of a 2014 option year. “I don’t really believe this is about this year,” Alderson said. “I think it’s about a timetable that will get him ready and if part of that timetable is pitching games in the major leagues this year, good. If it’s not, it’s not. But we certainly aren’t going to rush things. Right now, I think a window in September is open to us. If it closes, that’s the way it goes.” While every individual and every operation may be different, no other pitcher had made it back from this surgery to a major league game until ChienMing Wang started against the Mets Friday in Washington.

Stripes & Strikes wins Sunbury Tournament


Vollmer wins 100 fly at U.S. Nationals The Associated Press

STANFORD, Calif. — Dana Vollmer added another memorable event to quite an eventful summer. Vollmer won the women’s 100-meter butterfly at U.S. nationals on Tuesday night, adding to the gold medal she won in the same event last week at the world championships. Vollmer showed few signs of fatigue just one day after arriving back in the United States from Shanghai, finishing in 57.26 seconds to beat out Claire Donahue. “It was faster than I thought I would be this morning cooing off the plane,” Vollmer said. “I didn’t know how I’d swim. I tried to stay really hydrated on the flight. I ended up watching like four movies. I didn’t really sleep.” That didn’t end up hurting her. Despite trailing after 50 me-

walk around and pretty much do anything I want on the golf course.” Asked how long it has been since he felt so good physically, Woods replied, “Years.” It almost seems that long ago since he was last in action. Woods, who was No. 1 in the world at the Bridgestone Invitational a year ago, has not played since he walked off the course after nine holes May 12 at The Players Championship with recurring injuries to his left knee and Achilles tendon. He said he injured them during the third round of the Masters while hitting a shot an awkward stance in the pine straw on the 17th hole. Woods said if he had sat out the rest of May, he would have been fine the rest of the year, a lesson he learned this time around. Woods wasn’t about to return until he was 100 percent healthy, and he is convinced of that now. He said he started hitting balls a couple of weeks ago, without giving an exact date, and that he got the itch to start playing soon after. Woods said he thought about playing The Greenbrier Classic last week, but decided to wait a little more.

After winning four straight games in the 10U Fast-Pitch Sunbury softball tournament, Stripes & Strikes defeated Lock Haven 4-2 in the title game to win the tournament. Hailey Burd struck out 14 in her complete game one-hitter while Marissa Trivelpiece and Taylor Kuschak each doubled and singled in the victory. Kuschak also batted in two runs and stole three bases. Erika Brook singled twice and stole four bases and Taylor Adamchick, Emma Stoker, Olivia Wolk and Julia Mrochko all singled. Amanda Arnold had the lone single for the Screaming Eagles.

ters, Vollmer put together a strong close to beat Donahue. The time was slightly behind her American record of 56.47 set at worlds but was enough for the title. Donahue came in second at 58.05 and former Stanford swimmer Elaine Breeden was third at 58.60 in her old college pool. “I wasn’t quite expecting someone to beat me to the 50,” Vollmer said. “But I think it was good. It got me out harder than I might have been otherwise. I’ve been working on my back half and trying to as strong as possible even though I just got off the plane.” It’s been a comeback summer for the 23-year-old Vollmer, who won a gold medal in the 800 free relay in 2004 in Athens but then failed to make the U.S. Olympic team in Beijing in 2008, while dealing with a variety of injuries. What gets him excited? “Trying to beat these boys,” Woods said. “That’s fun. Getting out there and trying to win golf tournaments, being there with a chance to win, whether you win or fail. Just being there is just a rush, and it’s just so much fun. Trying to pull off the shots that you’ve done in practice when it matters the most, see what you’ve got. That’s fun.” In the three months since he was gone, Rory McIlroy shattered his U.S. Open scoring record to par, and good friend Darren Clarke finally won a major at the British Open at age 42. Steve Stricker has won twice to become the highest-ranked American. Clarke, friends with Woods since his final major as an amateur in 1996, will be paired with him the first two rounds. “Tiger has been the best player in the world for a very long time,” Clarke said. “He has been the guy over my career that has set the benchmark for all the rest of us, and personally he’s a good friend of mine. It is fantastic, I think, not just for you guys but for all of world golf just to see Tiger Woods back playing again. I’m sure he will be trying to get himself back up to where he has been before, and personally I don’t doubt he’ll do that. “But for us to have a chance to compete against him again can

the sixth on an awkward play with Brandon Laird on third and Austin Krum on second. Doug Bernier grounded to short with one out and infield back and Laird didn’t score. The next batter, Kevin Russo grounded to third baseman Carlos Rivero, who decided to tag Krum. But Krum scampered back to second before getting tagged, which allowed Laird to score and give SWB a 3-2 lead. “A high percentage of the time, the infielder is going to throw the ball across the diamond,” SWB manager Dave Miley said. “We’ll take it.” SWB took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on a two-out home run by Montero. His 11th longball of the year sailed well over the fence in left-center field. The IronPigs got to Banuelos in the third when Domonic Brown hit a long home run to rightf ield over one of the billboards to tie the score at 1-1. Lehigh Valley got another run in the next inning off Banuelos. Freddy Galvis, who was playing in his first Triple-A game after being called up from Reading earlier in the day, singled and only be good for the game in general.” Woods still managed to make news while not playing when he fired his caddie, Steve Williams, after a 12-year partnership during which he won 13 majors. For all the talk about disloyalty — Williams caddied for Adam Scott at the U.S. Open, then again at the AT&T National without seeking permission — Woods said only that it was “time for a change.” “I felt that Stevie and I have had just an amazing run,” he said. “Steve is a hell of a caddie, there’s no denying that. He’s helped my career, and I think I’ve helped his, as well. We’ve had a great partnership for12 years, maybe a little bit more than that, won a bunch of tournaments. I just felt it was time to change things up a little bit. I felt very comfortable with the move.” He did not bite when asked about Williams’ comments to a New Zealand television station that he had wasted the last two years of his life. “That’s what he says and what he feels,” Woods said. In his place is Bell, who last caddied for Woods at the 2005 Disney Classic, and previously worked for Woods when he won the 1996 U.S. Amateur and the 1999 Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines. Woods said Bell is only a fill-in

single. … Montero was the previous youngest SWB Yankee debuting with the team at 20 years, 148 days old. …Tuesday’s attendance was 4,331 and the time of the game was 2 hours, 48 minutes.

scored on a triple by Pete Orr. The three-bagger was ripped to the gap in the right-center and sailed to the fence as the ’Pigs went up 2-1. But SWB answered right back in the bottom of the stanza to tie the score at 2-2 on Laird’s 11th home run of the year, a blast that flew over the left field wall. “They’re a good hitting club over there and (Banuelos) gave us a chance to win,” Miley added. “They got some professional hitters over there that can use the bats and he handled himself very well.” Notes: Yankees left-handed reliever Randy Flores was released before Tuesday’s game to make room for Banuelos on the roster. … Lehigh Valley also promoted third baseman Carlos Rivera from Double-A Reading prior to Tuesday’s game.

— “Have you seen his legs?” he said — and there no timetable for getting a permanent replacement. The only sense of urgency for Woods is his results. Because he has missed so much golf — and didn’t play all that great early in the year — he has plunged to No. 135 in the FedEx Cup standings. He needs to crack the top 125 after this World Golf Championship and the PGA Championship to qualify for the playoffs. He could take care of that with a top 10 finish at Firestone, where only once in his career — last year — has he finished lower than fifth. “I really hope that he will play well,” said PGA champion Martin Kaymer, who played with Woods at TPC Sawgrass, at least for nine holes. “We need him. We really need him. He’s the best player who ever played that game, and obviously he’s struggling a little bit at the moment, but I just hope that he can go back to basics and show us how great of a golf player he is.” Whatever rust Woods has won’t be known until Thursday, when his shots count. He played nine holes Tuesday, often hitting more than one shot when he wasn’t pleased with where it was going. “I’m just focused on trying to win a golf tournament,” he said. “That’s it.”

that as long as they are preparing to use the same strategy that the NFL, who uses the same lawyer, used, it doesn’t seem that we’re going to be able to get to the deal that we need to get to together.” NFL players decertified their union this year, though they ultimately resolved a 41⁄2-month labor dispute with the owners. “We just don’t have as much time as the NFL did,” Stern said. “If the union sort of continued to drag its feet and then pursued its preferred decertification strategy, and if the same 41⁄2 months went by, we’d be well into our season. The NFL had more time than we do.” Players’ attorney Jeffrey Kessler, who also represented the NFL players, was named in the NBA’s lawsuit for his use of what the league called an “impermissible pressure tactic” that has had a “direct, immediate and harmful” effect on CBA talks. “For the parties to reach agreement on a new CBA, the union must commit to the collective bargaining process fully and in good faith,” Adam Silver, the NBA deputy commissioner and chief operating officer, said in a statement released by the league. Kessler said the players are frustrated because they believe it’s the owners whose negotiating efforts have been in bad faith. “The NBA Players Association has made no decision to decertify. They talk about the fact that this is something the players have considered for 30 years, and that’s true. And they haven’t done it for 30 years,” Kessler said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “So there’s no decision made. There may be no decision made. We view this as an example of their bad-faith bargaining. They don’t want to be at the table.” Yet Stern said decertification is Kessler’s “preferred strategy and we really prefer to head that off.” “We know Kessler. We know Jeffrey. We’ve been at this for something approaching 30 years. We’re pretty familiar with the playbook,” Stern said. “You announce that you’re going out of business, you swear under oath that it’s permanent and non-reversible, and then you settle the lawsuit and then you make it unpermanent and non-reversible. And so let’s I think let the festivities begin.” Hunter, in a statement released by the union, said the players will seek to dismiss the lawsuit, which he called “totally without merit.” Said Hunter: “We urge the NBA to engage with us at the bargaining table and to use more productively the short time we have left before the 2011-12 season is seriously jeopardized.” After a labor meeting in New York on Monday, the first session since the lockout began July 1 that included Stern as well as leaders from both the owners and the players, a downcast Stern said the sides were “at the same place” as they were a month ago in the hours before the old deal ran out. Cup, Team USA refused to be the passive underdog and surprisingly fought its way to the knockout phase. At the 2002 World Cup, coach Bruce Arena had his team play with an arrogance that pushed the USA past more talented teams and into the quarterfinals. Even the rare time Bradley broke out of his rigid form and let his team play free and with creativity, the United States shocked top-ranked Spain and then pushed mighty Brazil to the limit before losing in the finals of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. Having made his mark as a world-class striker, you’d like to think the United States will try to play with a bit more flair under Klinsmann. Still, he isn’t a miracle worker, and we don’t know for sure that his ideas will work. But in 2006 we knew that whatever U.S. Soccer was doing wasn’t good enough to move to the next level internationally. Klinsmann represented something different. It has taken nearly five years, but U.S. Soccer has finally decided to find out if change will be good.

descent, it was not exclusive to his tenure. U.S. Soccer is making strides, but more has to be done to identify and acquire talent from our Latino communities, where soccer is still the No. 1 sport. Having a national-team coach who understands and appreciates that could do wonders for improving the U.S. talent pool. “There’s so much influence coming from the Latin environment over the last 10, 15, 20 years that also has to be reflected in the U.S. national team,” Klinsmann said. “Soccer in a way reflects the culture of a country. One of my challenges, because you have such a melting pot, will be to find out how a U.S. team should represent its country, what should the style of play be — is it more of a proactive, forward-thinking style of play or is it more of a reacting style of play.” As a rule, the United States plays reactive against superior opponents and proactive against lesser foes. But some of its greatest accomplishments have come when it has stepped outside the box. John Smallwood is a columnist for As host of the 1994 World the Philadelphia Daily News.







Haynesworth a happy camper in New England season. He has 428 tackles and 141⁄2 sacks in four seasons.

The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Albert Haynesworth would have been happy just to get away from Washington. Leaving the Redskins for a Super Bowl contender has him downright thrilled. “It’s a great chance to be on a great team,” Haynesworth said. “It’s a chance to restore my name or whatever you want to say. It’s a great chance to get back on the field and play football.” Haynesworth spoke to a throng of reporters crowded around him on the practice field Tuesday, his first public comments since the Patriots picked up the sometimes-troubled defensive tackle in a trade with the Redskins last week. Disgruntled in Washington, Haynesworth seemed delighted to be in New England and said he hopes to keep his history of troubles on and off the field from resurfacing with his new team. The Patriots have turned around discipline cases before and were willing to take on the risks for the gargantuan tackle they hope to be wreaking havoc on quarterbacks other than their own. “Forget about that stuff. It’s all in the past,” Haynesworth said. “It’s all about now rewriting my name as Albert Haynesworth the Patriot.” Haynesworth clashed hard last season with Washington coach Mike Shanahan. His new boss in New England is Bill Belichick, who is hardly the warm and fuzzy type. But both player and coach said their initial meeting went well and they feel Haynesworth is a good fit with the Patriots. EAGLES

BETHLEHEM — The Eagles agreed to contract terms Tuesday with veteran running back Ronnie Brown, who spent his first six seasons with the Dolphins.

field. Players with new deals can’t practice until Thursday, when the league year officially begins. It has made for an interesting and sometimes frustrating day at the office for guys such as Legursky and linemates Willie Colon, Jonathan Scott and Tony Hills. All agreed to come back to the defending AFC champions to take make another run at the Super Bowl. All have spent the first days of camp standing around watching the players they’ll be competing against get an early jump on trying to take their jobs. Ask Legursky and company if it’s clear to them what they can and cannot do and they shrug their shoulders and carefully word their answers. “Like I said, this is from my understanding, it has a lot to do with collective bargaining and things of that nature,” Scott said. “They say don’t do it, and I don’t do it.” Sitting in meetings? Yes. Eating team meals? Yes. Putting on pads and going to work? No. Work out with the guys already officially in camp? No. Wide receiver Hines Ward, currently on the physically unable to perform list with a thumb injury, said the sight of regulars such as Legursky, defensive tackle Chris Hoke and defensive back William Gay in the weight room while rookies and undrafted free agents run with the first team has given camp a somewhat bizarre feel. “It doesn’t feel like camp until we have our whole team,” Ward said. “It’s a different experience having training camp and the free agency process at the same time.” Veteran defensive tackle Aaron Smith has a different

word for it. He spent Tuesday afternoon working alongside first-round draft pick Cameron Heyward and going against the likes of rookie offensive guard Keith Williams, guys that probably won’t see much time with the first string come Thursday afternoon. “It’s a little awkward,” Smith said. “You know this guy is going to be there, but somebody else is there right now. It’s kind of, almost like we’re at an OTA or a minicamp right now.” That might not be a bad thing for a team with some significant depth issues, particularly along the offensive line. Williams is doing his best to take advantage of his time working with the first and second units, hoping to soak up as much knowledge as he can. “It’s a great opportunity for me to show the coaches and the whole team that I can play ball, I can be a pro,” Williams said. “I’ve got to limit my mistakes and study hard.” It’s one of the few things the re-signed guys can do with their teammates. Gay, who likely will serve as the nickelback, never doubted he’d return to the Steelers. Yet he also didn’t rush to get back, knowing he couldn’t get in between the lines until Thursday. He arrived in camp Monday and spent most of Monday night shaking hands with the dozens of new faces on the 90man roster. Although he’s pretty comfortable with the schemes, he understands studying only gets you so far. “I don’t care what you do on the outside,” Gay said. “Once you put them pads on and you’re chasing somebody every down, that’s a totally different story.” One that can’t begin fast enough for the veterans. It’s been six long months since that miserable night in Texas when Steelers fell to Green Bay in the Super Bowl.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As he prepares for his second season with the Baltimore Ravens, Anquan Boldin’s responsibilities extend beyond merely catching passes from Joe Flacco. When the Ravens cut wide receiver Derrick Mason and tight end Todd Heap last week, Boldin became the veteran of the receiving corps. With the exception of running back Ray Rice, no other player on the current roster had more than 11 catches last year with Baltimore. That leaves the 30-year-old Boldin as the self-described “big brother” of the receiving corps. He is a teacher and a coach to rookie Torrey Smith, newcomer James Hardy and second-year tight end Ed Dickson. Boldin laughingly insists he’s been teaching on the field since his rookie year with Arizona. This year, however, he truly is the old man of the bunch.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Frank Gore practiced Tuesday with the San Francisco 49ers for the first time this offseason, breathing life into an offense that has been working this summer without several of its top players. The two-time Pro Bowl running back ended his four-day holdout Monday and was back on the field a day later as the 49ers conducted their second padded practice of camp. He was welcomed back by a new coaching staff and several players who have been anticipating his arrival. Gore, who missed San Francisco’s final five games last season with a fractured hip, is in the final year of his contract with the 49ers that will pay him $2.9 million this season with a $2 million roster bonus.

BEREA, Ohio — Browns punter Reggie Hodges is out for the season after tearing his Achilles’ tendon during practice. Hodges, one of the AFC’s top punters last season, got hurt during a non-contact drill during the team’s Tuesday morning workout. He caught a snap in the back of the end zone, took one step and crumpled to the turf. Browns president Mike Holmgren says Hodges’ injury is season-ending, and the 29-yearold will undergo surgery as the team begins its afternoon walkthrough. Hodges averaged 43.9 yards on 78 punts last season and had 29 kicks inside the 20. The Browns rewarded him with a two-year contract extension in November. The Browns do not have another punter in training camp.

U.S. race features top Tour de France finishers By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer

DENVER — The inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge through the Rocky Mountains this month will feature the top three finishers from the Tour de France, an unprecedented feat for an American race. Andy and Frank Schleck will join Tour winner Cadel Evans, an Australian who races for America-based BMC Racing Team, in the weeklong Colorado race. The Schlecks are among the best racers in the world. Andy, 26, is a three-time Tour runnerup, and Frank, 31, won last year’s


Tour de Suisse. The Luxembourg brothers are listed on the Team Leopard Trek roster that was submitted Monday, making for “a world-class field for a first-year race,” said race CEO and co-chairman Shawn Hunter. This is the first time an American cycling race will feature the three reigning podium finishers from the Tour de France. “For us, this is a great validation for our inaugural event to have the entire podium from the Tour,” Hunter said. “Given the roster commitments we’ve had this week, we believe this will be

one of the most competitive fields to ever race on American soil.” The field also will include the top U.S. riders Tom Danielson and Levi Leipheimer as well as Italian Ivan Basso, a two-time Giro d’Italia winner, when the 128rider field is finalized Thursday. “We will end up seeing seven or eight of the top-10 finishers from the Tour,” Hunter said. Danielson, a Boulder, Colo., native, took ninth at the Tour while racing for team champion Garmin-Cervélo. “Tom is considered by a lot of people in the sport to be the fa-

vorite because he lives here and these are his roads,” Hunter said. Leipheimer of Santa Rosa, Calif., is also a superb climber. He’s the reigning champion of the Life Tim Fitness Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race, the nation’s highest-altitude endurance test that has exploded in popularity since Lance Armstrong won it a few years ago. One cyclist who isn’t expected to come to Colorado is threetime Tour de France winner Alberto Contador, who hurt a knee in the Tour last month and finished fifth. Race organizers haven’t heard from him.


pro cycling circuit since the Coors International Bicycle Classic ended its run in 1988. It will feature the two highest climbs in competitive international cycling history on the same stage on the third day, something the International Cycling Union had to sign off on. The race through Colorado’s front range and the picturesque Rocky Mountains begins with an ultra-fast prologue in which riders will descend from the Garden of the Gods at 50-plus mph and into Colorado Springs. The race ends in downtown Denver on Aug. 28.


Broad Bahn wins Hambletonian draw

Nationwide looks sure for Patrick

By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

Plans for 2012 are to run lower series fulltime, some Sprint Cup and Indy 500.

By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Danica Patrick could still run the Indianapolis 500 even if she makes a full-time move to NASCAR, The Associated Press has learned. Two people familiar with Patrick’s 2012 plans said she is in the final stages of a deal Patrick to run a fulltime Nationwide Series schedule with JR Motorsports and limited Sprint Cup Series races with the team owned by two-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart. The people spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the deal won’t be finished until she has secured a release from Andretti Autosport. The talks also include her continuing to run the Indianapolis 500, one person told AP. JR Motorsports co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said last weekend he wants Patrick to run a full Nationwide schedule with his team. She has driven 19 Nationwide races for his team over the last two seasons and has six more scheduled starts this year. “I would like for her to run fulltime, and I’m sure she is considering that, and I think she would enjoy it,” Earnhardt said at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “I feel confident that she’s content where she is and happy with what we’re doing. I think things are looking positive for us to put something together.” Earlier this year, Stewart said he would love to work with Patrick but only in the Sprint Cup Series. He has wanted to expand his two-car Stewart-Haas Racing organization but had no interest in fielding a Nationwide car. “Anybody that’s got a Cup team that would have the availability would jump at the chance to do something with her,” Stewart said in May. “You would be crazy not to entertain an offer like that and an opportunity for her to drive a race car for you.” The potential to continue to race the Indianapolis 500 is a new wrinkle, considering JRM coowner Kelley Earnhardt has said that it would be difficult for Patrick to run that race and compete for the Nationwide championship. Running the Indy 500 requires drivers to spend most of the month of May at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and NASCAR this year ran three Nationwide races during that span. Patrick finished third in the 2009 Indy 500, the highest finish for a woman in open-wheel’s most prestigious race. She has one career victory in IndyCar and currently is ranked 11th in the series standings. In 109 career starts, she has three poles and 20 top-5s.

“He certainly would add to the sizzle, but he may just take the month off and rest given the rough month he went through in France,” Hunter said. Evans was a world champion mountain biker before focusing on road racing. He and the Schlecks finished in the top five in the hunt for the King of the Mountains jersey on the Tour, defining a skill that will come in handy in the diverse terrain of the Colorado race that ascends more than two miles in elevation. The USA Pro Cycling Challenge is Colorado’s first on the


Michael Borriello and Chris Borriello wait outside the Nassau Coliseum as residents vote to decide whether to back a $400 million referendum for a new hockey arena and ballpark Monday.

Options sought for Islanders By FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press

MINEOLA, N.Y. — A day after voters soundly defeated the idea of borrowing $400 million for a new arena, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday that the league would strive to keep the New York Islanders from leaving town when the team’s lease expires in 2015. Meanwhile, Nassau County officials announced plans to open the 77-acre parcel to any developer interested in proposing new ideas for the site. Voters, in a rare midsummer referendum, rejected a plan that would have replaced the 39year-old coliseum, as well as develop a nearby minor league ballpark and possibly an indoor track and field facility. According to unofficial results from Monday’s vote, the referendum failed 57 percent to 43 percent. Nassau County residents pay some of the highest property taxes in the country, and although supporters of the referendum claimed tax increases would average $14 to $58 a year, most voters opted against spending public money to bene-

fit the privately owned sports franchise. The county is currently under the thumb of a state-appointed fiscal watchdog after citing a budget deficit of more than $100 million earlier this year. In late June, 128 county workers were laid off in a budget-cutting measure. County Executive Edward Mangano backed the referendum as a way of keeping the hockey team from leaving as well as to spur economic development and job growth. He said he would welcome proposals from Islanders owner Charles Wang and anyone else. Wang, whose 2003 plan for a multibillion-dollar private development of the property foundered amid community opposition, was expected to issue a statement today, a team spokeswoman said. After the vote Monday night, Wang said he was heartbroken but did not want to make any immediate pronouncements about the team’s future. He promised to honor the team’s lease through 2015. Bettman said in a statement

Tuesday that the league would work with the Islanders “to explore whatever options still may be available in light of what obviously is not a positive development. Our goal is for the team to remain on Long Island and we still hope that objective can be realized.” Mangano said he wants to keep the hockey team in the county, but was willing to listen to alternate ideas for the land. “I encourage all those with a plan to contact the county immediately,” he said. He set a deadline of Aug. 12 for developers to submit proposal,s but conceded he would extend the time period if necessary. The Association for a Better Long Island, a real estate group that opposed the referendum, issued a conciliatory statement after Mangano’s announcement. “He has appropriately challenged the private sector to present to him innovative ideas and options that achieve the strategic objective of a new coliseum and synergistic development,” said ABLI board member Vincent Polimeni.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eliminations winners Broad Bahn and Manofmanymissions will try to win the $1.5 million Hambletonian from the two inside posts. Broad Bahn won Tuesday’s draw among the elimination winners to pick first and trainer Noel Daley went with the No.1post for harness racing’s most prestigious race. Trainer Erv Miller took the No. 2 post for 9-5 favorite Manofmanymissions. The post positions for the other eight 3-year-old trotters were determined in an open draw. The field from the rail out is Broad Bahn, Manofmanymissions, Fawkes, Chapter Seven, Whit, Whiskey Tax, Opening Night, Magnum Kosmos, Luckycharm Hanover and Pastor Stephen. Manofmanymissions posted the fastest winning time (1:52 4-5) in Saturday’s eliminations is the top choice for the race celebrating its 30th year at the Meadowlands Racetrack. Andy Miller, Erv’s Miller’s brother, is the driver. Chapter Seven, who finished a fast-closing second to Broad Bahn in last weekend’s first elimination, was made the 7-2 second choice. The colt will try to make cancer survivor Linda Toscano the first female trainer to win the race. Mike Lachance will be in the bike looking for his fifth Hambletonian win. Broad Bahn is the 4-1 third choice. The 3-year-old colt led almost every step of the way in winning his elimination in 1:53 for driver George Brennan. Brennan expects Broad Bahn to be near the lead Saturday, saying the son of Broadway Hall earned the No. 1 post. “He’s got speed and he has the ’Minister of Speed,”’ Brennan said, referring his own nickname around the track. Manofmanymissions stayed

close to the pace in his elimination and wore down long shot Magnum Kosmos in the final 100 yards in winning last weekend. “I don’t want to be out too far and I don’t want any other horses in between us,” Erv Miller said after picking to No. 2 post. Chapter Seven might be the wild card. The colt missed more than a month of training after developing a virus and didn’t make his first start until two weeks ago, when he won a division of the Stanley Dancer Memorial. “He has overcome so much to get to where he is and what he has done in the last couple of weeks is astounding.” Toscano said after the draw. Trainer Jimmy Takter, who won last year’s race with Muscle Massive, had the most disappointing draw when Pastor Stephen, last year’s top 2-year-old trotter, drew the outside No. 10 post for driver Ron Pierce. Pastor Stephen, who has battled illnesses this year, finished third to Manofmanymissions, a little more than two lengths behind the winner. “The 10 hole, somebody has to get it,” Takter said. “Unfortunately, it was me.” Hall of Famer John Campbell, who will be looking for a record seventh Hambletonian win, will drive Opening Night for his brother, trainer Jim Campbell. A couple of week ago, John Campbell wasn’t even thinking about the Hambletonian. He was recovering from broken right shoulder and a broke right knee suffering in a spill at Harrah’s Chester. He returned to driving last weekend, trying to get his own Live Jazz into the Hambletonian final. The colt did not qualify, but his brother, Jim, gave him the drive on Opening Night, who was qualified by Brian Sears. Sears picked up the drive on Mangum Kosmos, when Brennan opted to stay with Broad Bahn in the final.


Big East should be as competitive as ever this season By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

NEWPORT, R.I. — The Big East is a conference in which struggling programs can get well quickly, big turnarounds are common and every team can legitimately start the season figuring it has a shot to contend for a BCS bid. The league’s members tout its competitiveness constantly. Five of the eight Big East teams have won a football championship since the league re-configured in 2005 — a fact brought up several times by Commissioner John Marinatto and his coaches during the conference’s media day. “I doubt if there is anybody in this league that starts out with the idea that we’re just trying to get to a bowl game,” Pittsburgh athletic director Steve Pederson said. It makes for a nice talking point, but balance can be both a

blessing and a curse. With no perennial national heavyweight to fight through since Miami and Virginia Tech departed, good isn’t quite good enough anymore in the Big East. Just ask Bill Stewart and Dave Wannstedt — if you can find them. Neither was at the Viking Hotel in Newport on Tuesday, both having been replaced even though their teams had compiled winning records and multiple bowl appearances during their tenures with West Virginia and Pittsburgh, respectively. Now Dana Holgorsen is running the Mountaineers and Todd Graham is in charge of the Panthers and neither is getting a grace period. In the Big East preseason poll, West Virginia was picked first and Pitt was second. “The expectations are what they are,” Graham said “At the

University of Pittsburgh, they’re about winning championships. Anything less than that is not going to be acceptable. “You walk in our building and it says nine-time national champion, it says expect 10.” For the record, the last time Pitt won a national championship was 1976 and the rest of those came between 1915-37. But when Cincinnati reaches consecutive Bowl Championship Series games as it did in 2008 and 2009 under Brian Kelly, it’s easy to see why athletic directors in the Big East lose patience with coaches who can’t seem to get their teams past the secondtier bowl games. And with TCU set to enter the league in 2012, the competition is about to get tougher. “I think we’re realistic in term of our expectations and we have historically given people time to establish their programs but if

you look at the league everybody here wants to win,” Pederson said. Pederson took a circuitous route to end up with Graham as

his football coach. He first hired Mike Haywood away from Miami, Ohio, but Haywood was fired after he was charged with domestic assault.











European Tour taking a divot out of PGA’s prestige By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

AKRON, Ohio — There was a time when Martin Kaymer couldn’t get to America fast enough. First came the inspiration from Tiger Woods’ incomparable 2000 season, when he won three straight majors among his 10 titles around the world. It was enough for the 15-year-old German to start dreaming of the PGA Tour, a chance to compete against Woods and the rest of the best players, to show them that he could play. Then came a chance to go to PGA National in south Florida with his German national team. “At that stage, I was still in school and couldn’t go,” Kaymer said Tuesday. “I said to my dad, ‘I really want to go there. Is it not possible you can take me out of school for a week or two weeks?’ He said, ‘Just keep working and you will play on the PGA Tour one year and then you will be there all year long.”’ Now that he’s a major champion, which comes with a fiveyear exemption on the PGA Tour, Kaymer no longer is in such a hurry. And why should he be? Golf has changed so much over the last 10 years that America, once the ultimate destination for the best players from all


Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke, shown after winning the British Open on July 17, is among the Europeans who prefer staying overseas to play.

corners of the globe, now is no more than an occasional detour for so many Europeans. The World Golf Championships, such as this week’s Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, used to offer a taste of the PGA Tour with enormous prize money, impeccable conditions and a chance to compete against the best in the world. Kaymer now gets enough of that while based in Europe. He can play 12 times on the PGA Tour, which includes four majors and three World Golf Championships. That leaves him five other events to play, which is ample. He can still pick the best events to play in Europe and other parts of the world. It’s a formula that appears to be working.

Kaymer, who won the PGA Championship last year and already has nine wins at age 26, stayed at No. 1 in the world earlier this year for two months. And while he lives part-time in Arizona, he has no immediate plans to join the PGA Tour. “I can’t tell when it’s going to be,” he said. “At the moment, I like my position that I can play a little bit in Europe, a little bit in America. I play all the tournaments I want to play, so there’s no need to join only the European Tour or only the PGA Tour or both. I don’t need to join the PGA Tour.” He is not alone. Three of the four major champions are not PGA Tour members. The PGA Tour is not as strong without them, though it remains the strongest tour in

the world, and that isn’t likely to change any time soon. It’s easy to get swept up over Europeans dominating the world ranking — 11 of the top 25, including Nos. 1-2-3 — by overlooking the fact that America still attracts most of the best players from Asia, Australia, South Africa, South America and its fair share of Europeans. That’s why it has the strongest fields each week, with about a half-dozen exceptions. Europe, however, has more than held its own since it looked to be doomsday five years ago. It was in 2006 when the PGA Tour announced its new FedEx Cup competition, complete with $35 million in bonus money and $10 million to the winner. It also made plans to move The Players Championship to May. European Tour chief executive George O’Grady gathered two dozen players at La Costa during the Match Play Championship in 2006 to figure out how to proceed. The message that emerged from that meeting was that the European Tour was worth fighting for. It is more than holding its

own. The FedEx Cup has not been enticing to all. Lee Westwood, who has joined the PGA Tour a couple of times, found no point in playing a full American schedule because the bonus series is right about the time his kids are on summer vacation. U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy tried the PGA Tour last year, then decided it was too much golf at the wrong time of the season at this stage in his career. Darren Clarke, fresh off his popular British Open win, hasn’t made up his mind about returning to America, but he said enough Tuesday to indicate that he was better off at home in Northern Ireland to spend more time with his two sons. Clarke is 42 and has been around long enough to notice a change in the landscape of golf. “I was a member of the PGA Tour, and I was proud to be a member of the PGA Tour, and I wanted to be a member of the PGA Tour,” he said. “Now with the way that game is on a much more global basis, European Tour is pretty good, as well. We in Europe have got the majority

of the top 10 players in the world right now. We’re pretty fortunate, and we have some players who deserve to be in those positions.” A decade ago, Clarke figured the only way to move up in the ranking was to play more in America because that’s where all the best were playing. Now, there is ample opportunity to pick up big ranking points in Abu Dhabi and Scotland and Shanghai and Singapore. “The necessity to be a PGA Tour member is not quite there like it used to be,” Clarke said. “A lot of guys will take up opportunities to be members, but at my stage in my career when I’m 42, do I need to join the PGA Tour again?” Kaymer is only 26 and asking the same thing. “I just don’t want to play tournaments because I have to play,” he said, alluding to the PGA Tour’s minimum requirement of 15 events. “If I go there, I want to play well. I want to enjoy being there. And if you travel to some countries or if you play too many tournaments, I don’t think that you can enjoy every tournament you play.”

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs saw a 2.4 percent decline to $20.7 million. Statewide, 26,403 slot machines were operating at Pennsylvania casinos this July; the figure was 24,903 in July 2010. The state collected $118.8 million in taxes from slot play in July, 3.4 percent higher than in July 2010.


DETROIT — Car buyers kept visiting dealerships in July, but not in big enough numbers to shake the auto industry’s unease about its recovery. “We’re still not back on the track of recovery yet,” said Jeff Schuster, executive director of global forecasting at J.D. Power and Associates. “There’s definitely some weakness kind of looming out there.”

ages of popular models sold by Honda and Toyota. But July wasn’t a total loss. Sales of compact cars and newer, more fuel-efficient SUVs rose. Trucks sales were down, however, hurt by continuing weakness in construction. Chrysler Group LLC said its sales rose 20 percent over last July. It was helped by new products such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which saw sales jump 76 percent. Sales rose 8 percent at General Motors, led by fuel-efficient

vehicles such as the Chevrolet Cruze, which can get 30 mpg in combined city-highway driving. Analysts say even though gas prices have dropped, most people expect them to rise again. Sales rose sharply for the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain small crossovers, which also get good gas mileage. Ford Motor Co. said sales rose 6 percent. The new Ford Explorer was a strong performer, with sales more than double a year ago. One of the company’s small cars did well, too. The Fiesta saw sales rise 58 percent. But in disappointment for the company, the popular Focus couldn’t capitalize on strong small-car sales, because prob-

A fund established decades ago to share Alaska’s oil wealth with future generations has hit $40.1 billion. The Alaska Permanent Fund on Tuesday reported a 20.6 percent gain for the recently ended fiscal year, its third-highest return and biggest since 1986. The fund expects to transfer $800 million for dividend checks, which nearly all Alaskans receive annually.

AT&T to slow heavy users

AT&T announced that it will throttle speeds of the top 5 percent of data consumers on its unlimited data plans beginning Oct. 1. These big data users are mostly longtime subscribers who were able to keep unlimited plans after June 2010, when AT&T stopped offering them to new customers. T-Mobile throttles services for unlimited data users who hit 5-gigabyte caps, and Verizon Wireless stopped offering unlimited data plans in June.

Fees to check luggage, change reservations and upgrade to a seat with more leg room, among other charges, have generated $21.46 billion for the world’s 47 largest airlines, according to a new study. The report by a Wisconsin-based airline consulting firm IdeaWorks found that the revenue collected in 2010 from such ancillary fees represents a 775 percent increase in revenue since 2007, when only 23 airlines reported collecting $2.45 billion. The parent company that operates United and Continental airlines reported collecting $5 billion in ancillary fees from the soon-to-be merged carriers, the most of any airline.

Worries about U.S. economy sink stocks Times Leader Wire Services


he United States isn’t defaulting, but the stock market is tumbling anyway. • The Dow Jones industrial average slumped more than 265 points Tuesday as mounting concerns about the fragility of the U.S. economy weighed heavily on Wall Street. It was the Dow’s eighth straight daily loss, its worst string since the depths of the global financial crisis in 2008.

Though relieved at Washington’s ability to forge an eleventh-hour debtceiling plan that averted a feared default, investors are spooked by the notion that the government cutbacks called for in the debt plan could further weaken an already torpid economy. “Investors are looking past the budget situation and realizing this is an austerity plan,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer of Harris Private Bank

in Chicago. “We have an economy that’s struggling to stay afloat, and we don’t have the ammunition to keep prodding it forward.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 — the benchmark for most U.S. mutual funds — lost 2.6 percent and fell to its lowest point of the year. It is down 0.3 percent for the year and is off nearly 8 percent since reaching a high for the year of 1,363 on April 29.

A series of weak economic reports and poor earnings reports from several big companies spurred the decline. “The market is starting to wonder where the growth is going to come from,” said Nick Kalivas, a vice president of financial research at MF Global. “It hasn’t hit the panic button yet, but that’s where we’re drifting.” All 30 stocks in the Dow lost ground. General Electric Co., Pfizer Inc. and Home Depot Inc. led the index lower with losses of 4 percent or more. All but 13 of the 500 companies in the S&P index fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury fell to a low for the year of 2.61percent from 2.75 percent Monday. Yields fall when bond prices rise. Gold gained 1.4 percent to $1,645 an ounce.

WASHINGTON — With their incomes barely rising, Americans spent less in June and saved more money, according to the latest government data. The cautious approach of households is reflected in a spate of reports showing the economy has slowed since late spring with little evidence of a sharp rebound in sight. Unless consumers spend more, that’s unlikely to change. In June, personal income increased a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent, the smallest gain since last November, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Half the increase stemmed from higher government payments for social programs such as Medicaid and unemployment compensation. Wages and salaries actually fell. At the same time, spending by consumers dropped 0.2 percent to mark the first decline in nearly two years. Adjusted for inflation, personal consumption fell less than 1 percent in June. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had forecast 0.1 percent increases in both personal income and consumer spending for June. Consumer spending drives economic expansion, but individuals tend to save more when times are uncertain and their wages are growing slowly. The nation’s high unemployment rate, which sat at 9.2 percent in June, also makes workers anxious about their jobs. As a result, the individual savings rate for June jumped to its highest level of 2011 — 5.4 percent of disposable income, up from 5.0 percent in May.

Europeans wary of creation of a ‘mega exchange’ By GABRIELE STEINHAUSER AP Business Writer

BRUSSELS—IntheU.S.,the planned takeover of NYSE Euronext by Germany’s Deutsche Boerse made waves because it means ceding the storied trading floor on11Wall Street to foreign control. But in Europe, tradition has almost no role to play in reviews of the deal. Regulators are focused instead on how to handle a new company that would be the world’s largest exchange

and control vast but rather obscure parts of the financial system. The deal is shining a spotlight on the sector’s transforming business model. Big exchanges are no longer just the venues for trading stocks and bonds, but have turned into one-stop conglomerates that clear and settle trades in derivatives, source and sell their own data and license the use of coveted indexes. Continental European countries will be eager

to use the deal to boost Frankfurt’s status as a financial center and compete with New York, Hong Kong and London. But regulators are also worried that they’ll create a financial behemoth just as they’re trying to increase oversight of the sector in the wake of the 2008 global crisis. The $10 billion takeover is set to affect big banks, investment funds and rival exchanges aroundtheworld,makingitone of the biggest regulatory cases

of 2011for the EU’s competition watchdog. The first deadline for the European Commission’s review is Thursday, but the regulator is widely expected to launch a deeper examination of potential competition threats that could drag on until the end of the year. “Are there a lot of monopolistic elements in this formation?

And now, a downgrade?

The U.S. now has a higher borrowing limit and isn’t at risk to default on its debt. But it could still lose its top AAA credit rating. The three main ratings agencies have warned that they may lower the rating because lawmakers haven’t cut the federal budget enough. How soon could it happen? Guy LeBas chief bond strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott, says it could be as early as next month. Avalon Partners chief economist Peter Cardillo believes there’s a 70 percent chance of a downgrade in the next six months. How will that affect interest rates? It depends on whom you ask. A downgrade usually leads to higher rates, says Kim Caughey-Forrest, an analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Group. In this case, because debt of the federal government would be downgraded, rates on Treasury securities would rise. The 10-year Treasury note is the basis for other rates, so borrowing costs would rise for everyone, including people getting mortgages or car loans. But the conventional wis-

These are S&P’s top credit ratings. Moody’s and Fitch have similar scales for their top ratings.

dom that rates would rise sharply after a downgrade might not hold up. A study by JPMorgan Chase shows just a slight rise in rates when countries lose their AAA rating. In May 1998, S&P knocked Belgium, Italy and Spain from AAA to AA. A week later, their 10year rates had barely budged. Analysts and bond traders aren’t convinced rates will rise much if the U.S. rating falls. Demand for Treasurys is strong, and that keeps yields down. Global investors are likely to still consider U.S. debt one of the safest investments. Many money market mutual funds and banks think it’s so safe that they hold Treasurys as a proxy for cash. They’ve done so despite the threat of a debt default and a downgrade. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note is at a 2011 low of 2.62 percent. A downgrade could spur a “quick jolt of nervous, kneejerk selling” of bonds, LeBas says. He says the 10-year yield could go above 3.5 percent. But he expects demand to recover quickly, and yields to fall.

Great glaze adds stock to sea bass

hat makes a better margarita, Persian limes or little Key limes or mixing either with lemon? Margarita aficionados (i.e. colleagues) had a feisty discussion which led to this: Are the three interchangeable in the kitchen?

Probably yes, probably no. Each will play up other flavors in a dish, so knowing their traits can guide their use. Key limes (Citrus aurantifolia) are small, yellower, more acidic and more aromatic than darker green Persians (Citrus latifolia). Key limes have seeds. Persian limes, also called Bearss, usually have no seeds and are less acidic. Lemons sub for vinegar in some sauces and salad dressings, add kick to fish and meat dishes and tart up dessert. They’re less acidic by weight than limes. Chef Norman Van Aken’s savvy about citrus.

The Norman of Norman’s in the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, he’s also exec chef at the Miami Culinary Institute’s restaurant. His take? “There are different levels of acidity among the lemon, lime and Key lime. I don’t find that there is a grand difference between Key limes and Persian limes, but I do think Key limes are a bit more tart. Because of the acidity and potency of the Key lime, 9 times out of 10, I’m going to counterbalance that acidity,” he said, citing Key lime pie’s sweetened conSee MARGARITA, Page 2C

AT VANDERLYN’S Restaurant, fish is one of the most popular items served. Whether it’s salmon coming from Jail Island, opa from Honolulu or halibut from Boston, nothing compares to our Soy Lime Glazed Chilean Sea Bass. The meat of a Chilean sea bass is pearly snow white in color and remains white upon cooking. Sea bass has a very large flake and is very moist and tender. This fish has gained popularity throughout the cooking community and is one of the most sought-after fish. Customers always ask for the recipe, and we do try to accommodate everyone, so here is the recipe for Soy Lime Glazed Sea Bass with Asian Slaw. The ingredients and amounts are enough for two dinners. You also can call Vanderlyn’s at 283-6260 to see when this will be a featured item.

SOY LIME GLAZED SEA BASS WITH ASIAN SLAW Ingredients: 2 boneless/skinless Chilean sea-bass fillets, 8 ounces each 1 cup light soy sauce Juice of 2 limes Tablespoon sugar 1 ⁄2 tablespoon honey 1 cup cabbage, julienned 1/4 cup carrot, julienned 1 ⁄4 cup mushrooms, sliced 1 ⁄4 cup red onion, julienned 2 scallions, chopped 1 ⁄4 cup teriyaki glaze 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted salt and pepper Method of preparation: 1. Combine soy sauce, lime juice and sugar in a small saucepan and reduce by half. 2. Add honey to soy glaze and allow to cool. Glaze can be made up to two weeks in advance and kept in the refrigerator. 3. In a small pan over medium heat, lightly toast sesame seeds until golden brown. Keep the seeds moving to avoid burning. Cool on plate for later use. 4. For the Asian slaw: mix all vegetables, toasted sesame seeds and teriyaki in a bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper. 5. Score sea bass by making 1 ⁄4-inch deep slices into the fillet in a criss-cross pattern across the length of the fillet. 6. Brush with glaze and bake in a 375-degree oven for 20 minutes, basting every five minutes. 7. Serve over Asian Slaw.

Margarita cupcakes let you drink your drink and eat it, too By SARA POKORNY

Put the blender away and grab a muffin tin instead; there’s another way to enjoy the classic, summery taste of a margarita. Margarita cupcakes embody everything that is the fruity cocktail, alcohol included. Top them off with tequila and lime frosting, and you have the real deal. This recipe results in incredibly

moist cupcakes that pack a lot of flavor, much of which comes from the lime zest. When zesting, be sure to grate the lime only to the point where just green is coming off. The white pith underneath is very bitter. Because the zest adds such a strong flavor to the cupcake, you can lessen the amount you use if you’d like to give your tastebuds a break. I used only one teaspoon.

Something else that can be strong is the icing. I followed these exact measurements and came away with a very tart cupcake topper. If you’d rather a tamer version, cut down on the amount of lime juice. ••• MARGARITA CUPCAKES 1/4 cup lime juice 1 and 1/2 teaspoon lime zest (1 lime) 1 cup milk

1/4 cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons tequila 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup sugar 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/3 teaspoon salt Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill a 12-cup muffin tin with liners. In a large bowl, mix together lime See CUPCAKES, Page 2C

Compound butter an alternative to grilling marinades By LAUREN CHATTMAN Newsday

During grilling season, everyone talks about rubs, marinades and sauces. But there is another less-discussed and even quicker way to add flavor to grilled foods: compound butter. Compound butter is simply butter that has been flavored with herbs, spices or other tasty ingredients. It couldn’t be easier to make. Soften some butter on the countertop, mash it together with the flavorings of your choice and some sea salt, if desired, roll it into a log and wrap in plastic or wax paper, and refrigerate for up to 3 days

Compound butter is simply butter that has been flavored with herbs, spices or other tasty ingredients. It couldn’t be easier to make. (or freeze for a month or longer). Let it soften a little so it’s easy to slice before using. Few foods are not improved when bathed in a little melted butter. To perfectly dress a grilled rib-eye steak or thinly pounded chicken breasts, let the meat rest for five minutes before topping with compound butter with lemon and herbs.

Chipotle-lime butter is great on grilled corn. Grilled shrimp get a great boost from anchovy butter. When using compound butter, don’t limit yourself to grilled foods. Toss blanched green beans with toasted sliced almonds and smoked paprika butter. Or pair steamed or boiled new potatoes with Parmesan, garlic and parsley butter. I would rather add my own sea salt to unsalted butter than begin with salted butter. Salt is a preservative, and salted butter is allowed to stay on the supermarket shelves for weeks or even months longer than un-

salted butter. For the freshest result, it’s better to buy unsalted butter, then add salt at home. You can choose any salt you like (in my rotation are Maldon sea salt from England, French fleur de sel and my new favorite, Amagansett Sea Salt, harvested in the Hamptons and sold at the Sag Harbor Farmers’ Market every Saturday). How much salt you add to butter will depend on the type you use (crystal shape and size determine saltiness) and your taste. I like a teaspoon of fine sea salt in my savory compound butters, but you might like more

or less. Compound butter isn’t just for dinner. Sweet versions with honey and cinnamon are delicious on pancakes and waffles. ••• COMPOUND BUTTER WITH LEMON AND HERBS 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 1/4 cup finely chopped mixed fresh herbs 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1. Mash together the butter, herbs, lemon juice, salt and cayenne in a small bowl. 2. Cover, refrigerate for up to

three days, and let come to room temperature before using. VARIATIONS Add the following to a stick of softened unsalted butter to create a variety of compound butters. All make 8 tablespoons: Parmesan, garlic and parsley: 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, 1/4 cup finely chopped basil, 1 small clove garlic finely chopped, 1 teaspoon fine sea salt Smoked paprika: 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro, 2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon fine sea salt. Chipotle and lime: 1 finely chopped chipotle chili in adobo sauce, 1 teaspoon grated lime zest, 1 teaspoon fine sea salt.

densed milk as an example. “The Key lime has a complexity that is kind of fascinating,” he adds, while a Persian lime “is not as potent nor do I find it to be quite as complex.” But he uses all three to give a dish “lift.” “Generally, you’re looking for salt, pepper and acid in almost every food that you eat.” And the margarita argument? “Get Key limes and Persian

Stylist’s hair-raising romantic tales may scare his older clients away Dear Abby: I am a weekly client at an upscale hair salon. I and most of the other customers are over 65. The owner, “Valentino,” is a 50ish widower who likes to brag about his romantic conquests. My friends and I agree that his revelations are inappropriate and unprofessional. Val is an excellent hairdresser. Should we ignore his behavior, or quit cold turkey and live with bad hair days? — Embarrassed in the Big Easy Dear Embarrassed: I have a better idea. Take Valentino aside and tell him privately, as a friend, that hear-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE ing the details of his sex life is embarrassing, and that some of his clients have mentioned they’re considering changing hairdressers because of it. Dear Abby: My best friend, “Marianne,” and I have known each other for 27 years. She recently got divorced, started playing online games and met a man at one of the sites. Within a couple of months, he had moved across the country with his son and into Marianne’s house. This guy has nothing going for him. He has no job background, no skills, and as near as I can tell, he is a


mooch. Marianne says he feels material things aren’t important and he is just not “into” money. Marianne and I get out for a couple of hours a week for “girl time,” and when we do, he calls and texts her constantly like a jealous teenager. Abby, we’re 40 years old! I haven’t told her how I feel about her new live-in, but my alarm bells are ringing. Should I tell her how I feel, or try to be happy she has found someone to give her the attention she didn’t have in her marriage? — Sees the Writing On the Wall Dear Sees The Writing: Of course the man doesn’t think material things are important and isn’t into money. He is enjoying Marianne’s material things and HER money.


Yes, you should tell your friend you are concerned. Begin by saying your concern stems from a fear that she has gotten seriously involved so quickly after her divorce, and that the man appears to be so insecure and controlling that he can’t give her a couple of hours of “girl time” without interruption. That really is a red flag. Dear Abby: A close, longtime family friend recently passed. In order to relieve some of the pressure on the deceased’s family, I volunteered my time and money to organize the reception following the funeral. There was a lot of food left over, much of it food that I had provided. We offered the leftovers to the family and they took some, but not all of it. I assumed that what was left of my

food would go to me and my family, but others decided to pack it up for themselves. Am I wrong to feel cheated out of food that I purchased? — Ticked Off in Massachusetts Dear Ticked Off: I understand your frustration, but please don’t waste your time fuming. The people who took the leftovers without first checking to see who had brought or donated the food probably needed it more than you. These are difficult times, so let it go. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll make big plans because you realize that without them you’ll be reacting to life instead of creating it. Even though some of what happens is not up to you, your intention will affect destiny. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Realizing that people want what they cannot have, you’ll use reverse psychology. You’ll make sure that what you offer has an aura of exclusivity about it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can take care of yourself, and you don’t need a loved one to exercise authority over you. You’ll resist all forms of control. You’ll remind everyone where your personal boundaries lie. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel something you want slipping away from you. Let it go for now. Bargaining won’t work in this case. Work on your own feelings of worthiness instead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When misunderstood, it’s human nature to say the same thing again, only louder. You’ll change your language, speaking sweetly and softly to get what you want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You desire to be successful at an endeavor that just happens to be highly competitive. You have several things going for you, including the fact that you enjoy the work so much that you’ll spend many tireless hours on it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Things start out well, but by the end of the day could get rough. Hungry, tired people will not be on their best behavior, but you will help matters by providing sustenance and a comfortable place to relax.

HOW TO CONTACT: Dear Abby: PO Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A perfectly lovely conversation will get hijacked by someone who desperately needs to be noticed. This person will talk endlessly about himself unless you do something to spread the attention more equitably. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Though imitation is a sincere form of flattery, avoid it this week. It’s better to flatter with your words and keep looking for the muse that is completely, utterly your own. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Like it or not, you are a point of contact for your friends, neighbors and colleagues. They will call you for information and support. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll think about an opportunity you missed years ago. Would life have been different had you made another choice? Rest assured, you made the right choice then. The future brings even better opportunities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Timing is everything. You have all of the right ingredients for a situation that hasn’t happened yet. It’s your turn to faithfully wait. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 3). Others are inspired and enthralled by you, magnetized by your aura of glamour. This month, you will benefit from a political change. New people come into power, and you find a comfortable niche. September shows financial growth. You’ll be celebrating your love in October. December is a personal high point. Cancer and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 26, 33, 25 and 20.
