Hughestown talks flooding, drainage issues Parsonage Street resident says he believes flooding on 300 block worse than ever.

By B. GARRET ROGAN Times Leader Correspondent

HUGHESTOWN -- Borough Council mainly discussed flooding and other drainage issues during Monday night’s brief regular meeting. Resident Dave Anderson of Parsonage Street stated his concerns about consistent street flooding on the 300 block, in the

vicinity of his home. He estimated the flooding has been regular for nearly three decades, but he fears that it is now worse than ever before. He said he recently had to help a motorist push his automobile out of a waist-deep puddle that had formed over a catch basin. Short of immediately determining the root cause of the flooding, borough officials pledged to have the several catch basins in the area thoroughly cleaned. Mayor Paul Hindmarsh said a

Warrior Run airs police complaints Council officials say they met with Nanticoke’s chief over coverage concerns. By SUSAN DENNEY Times Leader Correspondent

WARRIOR RUN -- Borough Council President Robert Daylida explained to residents at Monday night’s council meeting that he and the council had met in executive session with the Nanticoke Police Chief Cheshinski about police coverage in the borough. The meeting with the Nanticoke chief was based on the large number of complaints at the council’s previous meeting, Daylida said. The borough official said better communication is needed between the residents and council of Warrior Run and the Nanticoke Police Department. Warrior Run does not have its own police force, but contracts with Nanticoke for police coverage. “We need a meeting with them at least once or twice a month to discuss these kinds of problems,” Council Member Larry Siejak said. Borough Solicitor James Pyrah suggested it be an open meeting and it should be held on a regular schedule so that grievances could be aired. One resident complained that he was recently cited by the Nanticoke police for making a 9-1-1 call. He said he had reported illegal burning and had shown the police officer the newly passed

lasting solution may require additional research from state officials. Anderson said the thought soot-infused storm-water run-off from the former coal mine on the street is more than the small catch basins can handle. Council member Barbara Gatto lent support to Anderson’s claims, pointing out the proper-

Anderson also raised an issue he has with a drainage ditch in the back of his property. He said a drainage pipe currently ends on his property and creates a foul odor during the cold weather months. He said he is hoping to get permission to extend the pipe approximately 150 feet onto what he believes to be municipal property. Borough officials promised to have the municipal engineer research the feasibility of the issue next week.

Pyrah said he would contact the Nanticoke chief about the situation. He also said he would fax a copy of the new ordinance to the Nanticoke solicitor so that it could be distributed to the police force. “This is what we struggle with. We pass an ordinance but we can’t enforce it. We don’t have our own police force,” Pyrah said. In other business, Council Member Henry Moriarty suggested that lane lines be painted on the road at the intersection of Beaumont and Chestnut streets to discourage people from cutting across lanes. Borough Engineer Paul Pasonick said he would check into the possibility of doing that. The council has been meeting for several months in the volunteer fire department hall because of renovations to the borough building. Council Member James Young expressed dissatisfaction with the contractor in charge of this project. “It was supposed to be completed in May, but it’s August and it’s still not finished,” he said, Daylida said of the contractor, “He’s slow.” Young replied, “It’s ridiculous.”

Commissioners approved a total reimbursed payment of $156,325 to the township’s ongoing Safe Routes to School project. The project is federally funded and provides for the installation of sidewalks, signage and ways to make the routes children use to walk to school safer.

Traffic during parade questioned in W. Wyoming By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent

WEST WYOMING -- Marty Herring asked council on Monday why Shoemaker Avenue wasn’t blocked during last month’s parade. He said he was helping his 9year-old grandson pick up candy in the middle of the road when his grandson yelled to him, “Watch out, there’s a car!” Herring said a line of cars came down the street at full speed. “Somebody better do something because if something happened to my grandson, this borough would have been in deep debt,” he said. Rick Humphrey of Hose Company No. 1, which hosted the parade and bazaar, said he will make sure the street is closed off

to outside traffic for future parades. Fourth Street resident Deanna Farrell thanked the borough fire departments for pumping water out of her basement during Saturday’s heavy rainfall. “Water was coming in my basement like a spout,” she said adding that crews were on the scene until 2 a.m. “They were hungry, they were tired, and they did a wonderful job.” Because her street doesn’t have any storm drains, Farrell said, it gets flooded frequently. Council President Eileen Cipriani said Fourth Street is one of several streets in the borough that is part of an upcoming storm water mitigation project, funded by an H20 grant through DEP. The project, which will begin

A 12-inch water line was compromised and a 36-inch main line has been exposed since the road was washed out, Yudichak said. Conrad explained at Monday’s township supervisors’ meeting that she was told the water company and Linde received an emergency permit to use the access road.

WILKES-BARRE – The installation of a new commercial dishwasher at the Luzerne County prison is expected to save more than $6,000 a month by eliminating the need to purchase Styrofoam containers that are now used to serve meals, warden Joseph Piazza told prison board members Monday. Piazza said installation of the machine is complete, but it is not yet operational pending finishing work on water heaters needed to operate it. The prison has used disposable plates and plastic wear since at least 2006, according to Times Leader archives. Piazza said he does not know

why that policy was put in place. In a 2006 interview, former warden Gene Fischi said the prison started using disposables because the kitchen, which was designed to feed 250, was serving more than 700 inmates a day and there was not enough room to wash dishes. In other business, the board took the following personnel actions: •Accepted the resignation of correctional officer trainee Joseph Petrosky and of full-time correctional officer Edwin Carreras. • Placed correctional officer trainee Raphael Rostock on suspension with the directive that he obtain required medical clearance within 30 days.

plants can get free potassium iodide tablets – also known as KI tablets – from the state Department of Health on Thursday. KI helps protect the thyroid gland against harmful radioactive iodine that may be released during a radiological emergency. Because not all radiological releases involve radioactive iodine, no one should take KI tablets unless directed to do so by state health officials or the governor. Anyone can take the tablets unless they are allergic to KI. The distribution is intended for people who were unable to take advantage of past KI offerings or have recently moved near nuclear power facilities. Individuals can pick up KI tablets for themselves and family members or those who can’t pick them up on their own. Directions on how to store the tablets and when to take them also will be provided. Those unable to get tablets during the distribution can pick them up any time at county or municipal health departments or state health centers. In Luzerne County, in which the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station is located, tablets will be distributed between 3 and 7 p.m. at Butler Township Community Center, 411 W.

Board said it did not see any more danger to students from proposed gas meter station.

DALLAS TWP. -- Dallas School District officials said Monday there is no retainer for an attorney working on behalf of the district in township zoning hearings concerning a natural gas metering station to be built near the campus. Resident Jane Tolomello asked the school board whether attorney Jack Dean, of ElW H AT ’ S liot, GreenNEXT leaf and The next Dallas Dean of School Board Scranton, meeting will be would conheld at 7 p.m. tinue particiSept. 19 in the pating in administration building. zoning hearings on behalf of the district for Chief Gathering LLC’s application for special exceptions to build a natural gas metering station about 1,300 feet from the Dallas schools. Board President Bruce Goeringer said there is no plan to request a continuance of Dean’s services at this time, but he insisted that if there is a pertinent issue, school board members will attend the next meeting. Goeringer said that because the company agreed to remove its compressor station, and later mercaptan tanks, from the site, the board did not see any more danger to students and therefore no longer requested Dean’s services. “It would have been nice to have someone from the district cross-examine (Chief’s) experts, the ones that say gas doesn’t blow up,” said Tolomello. She also said she was concerned about the age of the Transco interstate gas pipeline, into which Chief will tap its gathering line from Susquehanna County. Tolomello also spoke about how the natural gas companies are trying to eliminate the process of zoning and land development for pipeline projects and urged the school district to get involved in the proceedings. “What can the school board do?” asked Solicitor Benjamin Jones III. “... A clear and present danger does not seem to continue to exist.” The next zoning hearings scheduled for Chief’s application will be held at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 22 and 30 in the Insalaco Hall at Misericordia University.

She said Linde and Pennsylvania American secured hold-harmless insurance coverage for use of the road, removing all liability from the Conrads. “The insurance covers all of their employees,” Conrad said. “And they will restore the property to its prior condition.” Tom Serbin asked Conrad if he could have the same courtesy and said he is willing to sign “any papers necessary to get access.” “School is approaching and winter is around the corner,” Serbin said. “I want to be able to get my kids to school so they don’t lose any time. And I want to be able to heat my home in the winter. We use propane gas and the truck can’t get to us right now.” Conrad said her attorney has drafted a

letter to be sent to the Serbins and to Len and Elizabeth Tkaczyk – the other family landlocked since the July 3 flooding – and she suggested they wait until they get the letter before discussing the matter further. Both families lost large portions of their yards to the flooding. Asked if the letter would include offering use of the road to the two families with the same “hold-harmless insurance,” Conrad said she hadn’t seen the letter and would not comment further. “I’ll sign any paper in a heartbeat,” Serbin said. “I just want access for my family.” The township fire chief sent a letter to the Serbins and Tkaczyks to let them know fire and emergency vehicles are unable to get to their homes should an emergency occur.

Woman charged in theft from aunt facing DUI By SHEENA DELAZIO

LARKSVILLE – A woman charged with taking more than $100,000 from her elderly aunt was charged Monday with driving under the influence. Marisa Ann Harlen, 30, of Tioga Avenue, Kingston, was charged by Larksville police with driving drunk and crashing her vehicle into a telephone pole on Nesbitt Street early Friday morning. Harlen was charged in September with taking $107,000 from Louise Olenik after, prosecutors say, she became her aunt’s power of attorney. Harlen, at a preliminary hear-

ing in November, said she took the money to feed a gambling addiction. Harlen is tentatively scheduled to enter a guilty plea to a related charge in September. In the DUI case, Larksville officer Stephen Kofchak said Harlen told him she was driving down Nesbitt Street just before 3:30 a.m. when she “grabbed her cell phone and swerved to avoid hitting a rabbit.” Harlen’s vehicle struck a pole, Kofchak said. He said Harlen’s eyes were glossy and that he detected a “strong odor” of alcohol. Harlen told Kofchak she had two drinks at Hun’s West Side Café, just after midnight, she was “not

The results revealed Harlen had a BAC of .131 percent, according to arrest papers. An adult driver in Pennsylvania is considered intoxicated with a BAC of .08 percent. Harlen was charged with two counts of DUI and one count of careless driving. No arraignment or preliminary hearing date has yet been scheduled.

Stabbing probe continues

Wright Township police continue their investigation into a Sunday stabbing outside Capitol Hill Apartments. On Monday afternoon, police said there were no new developments in the case. They have not released the name of the victim, who was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center for emergency surgery. The victim, in his 30s, resided in Apartment 7B. He was stabbed multiple times late Sunday afternoon in the chest, back, arm pit and leg. The weapon used in the attack, a folding blade 3 to 4 inches long, was recovered. Police said the assailants fled the scene in a vehicle, possibly a maroon Nissan. Luzerne County District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll had not heard any news about the investigation, a person in the office said.

A jury of eight women and six men was selected to hear the trial, which is expected last three days. Robert Allen Crego, 28, of Deer Run Road, was charged in February 2010 with entering Craig’s Food Mart on West Broad Street in Hazleton, demanding cash and fleeing. Crego is represented by attorney James Scallion. Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts is prosecuting the case. Opening statements were heard late Monday. Testimony will resume this morning. Prosecutors say Crego entered the store with a knife in one hand and a cloth covering his face. Police say Crego pointed the knife at a store clerk and demanded money. The clerk hit a panic alarm and Crego fled the store without any money, police said. A few weeks later, police located Crego, who told police he had nothing to do with the attempted robbery. Crego also faces two counts of intercepting communications after police said he listened in on a conversation Crego’s girlfriend had with police about the robbery while Crego was lodged at the county prison. WILKES-BARRE – A former Ranshaw, Pa., man sentenced last month to13 to 26 years in state prison on charges he forced a teenage girl to perform lewd sex acts has appealed his conviction and sentence to the state Superior Court. Chad Benner, 38, was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Van Jura after a jury found him guilty of related charges. A judge recently denied Benner’s request to give him a new trial or grant him an acquittal on the charges.

Tonte broke into a Pine Street, Pittston, building through a rear door. Shortly after, Tonte was charged with leading a police chase in West Pittston and sentenced last month to one year in prison on related charges. In that case, police said Tonte,

who pleaded guilty to related charges in April, was involved in a high-speed pursuit with police, causing two accidents and injuring an officer. In the case in which Tonte said he violated probation and was on the run, he said Monday he was serving a house arrest sentence

from a Lackawanna County drugrelated charge and tested positive for marijuana in a urine test. Tonte said because he tested positive he went “on the run.” Brown ordered Tonte to pay more than $6,000 in restitution and to complete 25 hours of community service.

“If you violate, you’ll likely go to (state prison),” Brown said, adding Tonte needed to stop committing crimes. “You’ve got to change that.” Sheena Delazio, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 8297235.

Pentagon reassures U.S.


Afghan tragedy not seen as a setback By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press


Last official duty before vacation

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is accompanied Monday by the officer commanding the Ballater Guard, Maj. Nick Wight-Boycott, as she inspects a Royal Guard formed by soldiers of The Argyll and Southerland Highlanders, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, as she arrives at Balmoral Castle, Scotland, at the start of her annual official break.

WASHINGTON — The deaths of 30 U.S. troops and eight Afghans to an insurgent marksman was an unprecedented loss but does not signal a new surge in Taliban combat strength, U.S. officials said Monday, even as violence flares along Afghanistan’s eastern border. Top U.S. leaders vowed that Saturday’s helicopter shootdown — the single largest loss of life in the 10-year-old war — will not rewrite America’s strat-

egy. “As heavy a loss as this was, it would even be more tragic if we allowed it to derail this country from our efforts to defeat alQaida and deny them a safe haven in Afghanistan,” said Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. The comments came as the Pentagon prepared to release the names of the fallen, and to develop plans to receive the remains of the war dead in a private ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Tuesday. Panetta was speaking in

Tampa, Fla., as Adm. Eric Olson handed control of U.S. Special Operations Command to Adm. Bill McRaven, a Navy SEAL who commanded the raid that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden earlier this year. The ceremony was scaled back a bit, in deference to the heavy losses the crash dealt to the military’s special operations forces. Among the 30 killed were 22 Navy SEAL personnel — the deadliest single loss by the elite force. President Barack Obama, in

a statement at the White House, said he spoke to his commanders and vowed to continue the fight. “We will press on and we will succeed,” said Obama, adding that the U.S. will keep working on handing over security responsibilities in Afghanistan to the Afghan forces. The crash in eastern Afghanistan that also killed three Air Force members and an Army air crew underscores the risks as the U.S. begins to turn over portions of the country to Afghan forces, while concentrating more on ferreting out insurgents operating along the border.


Maid sues ex-IMF leader

hotel maid who accuses ex-International Monetary Fund boss A Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual

assault sued him Monday, seeking unspecified damages as a result of what she calls the “violent and sadistic” attack in a room at the upscale Sofitel hotel. Lawyers for the maid, Guinean immigrant Nafissatou Diallo, wrote in the lawsuit that Strauss-Kahn “intentionally, brutally and violently sexually assaulted Ms. Diallo and in the process humiliated, degraded, violated and robbed Ms. Diallo of her dignity as a woman.” The lawsuit says Strauss-Kahn injured her shoulder, bruised her vagina, tore her pantyhose and violently grabbed the back of her head during the attack. The lawsuit, filed in state court in the Bronx, accuses Strauss-Kahn of acting like a common criminal afterward, fleeing the midtown Manhattan hotel so quickly that he left behind traces of his semen, along with bloody tissues.


Al-Qaida wants ex-members

A new message posted online purportedly from al-Qaida in Iraq asks Sunni fighters who switched sides and joined forces with the U.S. and Iraqi government to return to the insurgent group, promising to forgive them and admitting that their departure had weakened the militants. The begging-like tone and the wideopen promises of forgiveness to members of the government-backed Sunni militia known as Awakening Councils, or Sahwa, would mark an abrupt shift for al-Qaida in Iraq if it is authentic. Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, who identified himself as the official spokesman of the Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaida front group, also threatened to slaughter those he was trying to recruit if they insist on continuing to fight alongside the government. BANGKOK

First woman PM takes over

Yingluck Shinawatra, the sister of an ousted Thai leader, vowed Monday to work for national reconciliation as she formally became the country’s first female prime minister. King Bhumibol Adulyadej certified her appointment as the country’s 28th prime minister with a royal command presented at a ceremony at her Pheu Thai party headquarters. Yingluck’s brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, was removed by a 2006 military coup after being accused of corruption and disrespect for the monarchy. His ouster set off a sometimes violent struggle for power between his supporters and opponents that continues to leave the country polarized. CLEVELAND

Serial killer apologizes

The man who killed 11 women and dumped their remains around his property apologized Monday in front of relatives of his victims and the jury that will decide whether to recommend the death penalty. “I’m sorry,” Anthony Sowell, 51, said in a hushed courtroom as he leaned forward during a 30-minute unsworn statement. The prosecution wasn’t allowed to cross-examine Sowell, leaving unspoken the question of why he killed the victims and attacked three other women who survived and testified against him.

Riots spread in London, 2nd city At least 200 arrested in third day of unrest in the nation. Leaders to meet today as PM cuts vacation short. By DAVID STRINGER and RAPHAEL G. SATTER Associated Press

LONDON — Violence and looting spread to new areas of London on Monday — and to a second major British city — as police and politicians struggled to contain the disorder during a third day of rioting in the capital, which will host next summer’s Olympic Games. The worst unrest in London in decades saw buildings, cars and garbage dumps set ablaze and police officers pelted with bottles and fireworks, as groups of young people and police clashed in neighborhoods across the capital. In the nation’s central city of Birmingham, dozens of people attacked stores in a main retail district — spreading the chaos beyond London for the first time since violence broke out on Saturday night. As authorities struggled to keep pace

with the unrest, Prime Minister David Cameron’s office said he would cut short his summer vacation and convene a meeting of the government’s crisis committee today to lead the response to the escalating violence. The violence began late Saturday in London’s northern Tottenham district when a peaceful protest over the police’s shooting of a suspect turned violent, leaving parts of the high street charred and its shops looted. But some have blamed the unrest on unemployment, insensitive policing and frustration across Britain over the government’s austerity budget, which will bring deep cuts to social services and welfare payments. On Monday evening, the rioting spread to at least four new areas of London. In the Hackney area of east London, hundreds of youths attacked shops and set fire to cars. Thick smoke billowed from a main street in the Peckham district of south London, where a building was set ablaze along with a bus — which was not carrying passengers. Lines of cars were torched in nearby Lewisham and a building in Croydon, while police advised

Godwin urged comTim Godwin munities to help clear Acting police the streets, and called commissioner on families to contact their children and ensure that they were not involved in the chaos. Home Secretary Theresa May, the Cabinet minister responsible for policing, and London Mayor Boris Johnson also cut short summer vacations in an attempt to deal with the crisis — while police confirmed they had made more than 200 arrests in London.

Somali refugees visited by Jill Biden

U.S. official says famine could claim hundreds of thousands of Somali children. By JASON STRAZIUSO Associated Press

DADAAB, Kenya — Hundreds of thousands of Somali children could die in East Africa’s famine unless more help arrives, a top U.S. official warned Monday in the starkest death toll prediction yet. To highlight the crisis, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden visited a refugee camp filled with hungry Somalis. Jill Biden is the highest-profile U.S. visitor to East Africa since the number of refugees coming across the Somali border dramatically increased in July. Biden, who traveled to the camp in a C-130 military transport plane, said she wants to raise awareness and persuade donors to give more. “One of the reasons to be here is just to ask Americans and people worldwide, the global community, the human family, if they could just reach a little deeper into their pockets and give money to help these poor people, these poor mothers and children,” said Biden, who met with two Somali mothers and their eight children. As a long convoy of SUVs drove through the sand to bring her to the camp, small wildebeests scurried off to the side and women tended a herd of goats. Biden was then taken on a tour of the refugee camp by personnel. “There is hope if people start to pay attention to this,” said Biden, who also met with Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga. A drought has turned into famine because little aid can reach militant-controlled south-central Somalia, forcing tens of thousands of Somalis who have exhausted all the region’s food to walk to camps in Kenya, Ethiopia and the Somali capital of Mogadishu. President Barack Obama approved $105 million on Monday for humanitarian efforts in the Horn of Africa to combat worsening drought and famine. White House press secretary Jay Carney says the money will help provide food, shelter, water, and sanitation and health services to those in need. USAID administrator Raj Shah, who accompanied Biden, said hundreds of thousands of children could die from the famine. Shah said the world has a unique opportunity to save tens of thousands of children’s lives by expanding humanitarian activities inside Somalia, though he noted that it would be a challenge for aid providers to get into alShabab-controlled south-central Somalia.

Friend of Ohio shooter says he was in estate dispute Michael Hance, 51, died in a shootout with police in Copley after shooting spree. By KEVIN BEGOS and ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press

COPLEY, Ohio — Police identified the man responsible for shooting and killing seven people in a terrifying rampage over the weekend near Akron, as a woman who knew him said Monday that he was an unpleasant, disliked person who was involved in an estate dispute. Michael Hance, 51, died in a shootout with police in Copley after the Sunday spree that included an 11-year-old among the victims. Robin Hancock, a caregiver for a couple slain in the ram-

page, went to the police station in Copley on Monday to hear updates on the killings and the identification of Hance as the gunman. “He was quiet and strange,” said Hancock, 53, of Akron. One shooting victim who survived was Becky Dieter, Hance’s girlfriend of more than two decades, she said. Hance had become embroiled in a dispute over the will of Dieter’s late parents, and a couple next door who were longtime friends with Dieter’s parents got involved, Hancock said. That couple, 67-year-old Russ Johnson and his 64-yearold wife, Gerdie, were among the seven people police say Hance shot and killed. Hance’s confrontational behavior had led Hancock to leave her job taking care of the couple, she said. Police combed three homes

and searched outside a fourth in a wooded residential area of Copley, collecting evidence as they tried to piece together what happened during the shootings that shook the quiet

neighborhood. Authorities were withholding the names and ages of those involved until officers could tell victims’ family members, some of whom were out of state, Co-

pley police Sgt. Eric Goodwin said. Autopsies began Monday. Hance shot his girlfriend in one home, ran next door, shot her brother and gunned down four neighbors, police say. He then chased four people — two through backyards — shooting one of them before bursting into a home where two others had sought refuge. Police said he shot an eighth person there and left, only to get into a gunfight outside with a police officer and a citizen who had been a police officer. Neighbors said that the dead included an 11-year-old boy and that at least three victims were from one family. The Akron Beacon Journal reported that Copley-Fairlawn School Superintendent Brian Poe said he was told by a township trustee that two Copley High School students were killed.



CIAVARELLA Continued from Page 1A

“That’s not a real, realistic possibility. Judges are very reluctant to give a life sentence.”

Ciavarella incarcerated juveniles as part of a scheme to boost profits at the PA Child Care and Western PA Child Care juvenile detention facilities, then extorted money from the coPeter Vaira owner, Robert Former federal Powell. Ciavaprosecutor rella was acquitted of all charges relating to the alleged extortion of Powell. None of the juveniles who appeared before Ciavarella in the specified time frame was called to testify at his trial. At the pre-sentence hearing, Flora objected to the number of victims, noting that the vast majority of youths in question were taken to PA and Western PA Child Care by police, and not placed there by Ciavarella. “The problem is, we use this number of 5,000 kids. That’s not even close to being accurate,” Flora said, according to the transcript of the hearing. Prosecutors contend the juveniles can be considered “victims” because Ciavarella failed to disclose he had a conflict of interest in presiding over their cases based on his acceptance of money from Mericle. Kosik is expected to rule on their objections at Thursday’s sentencing hearing. Contacted Monday, Ruzzo declined to speculate on how Kosik might rule. Peter Vaira, a former federal prosecutor who specializes in federal law, said he doubts Kosik, even if he agrees with the probation department’s calculation, will sentence Ciavarella to life. “That’s not a real, realistic possibility,” Vaira said. “Judges are very reluctant to give a life sentence.” Still, Ciavarella is likely facing significant prison time, Vaira said. Given his age, any sentence Kosik imposes could essentially amount to a life term, he said.

of two juvenile detention centers utilized by the county. Federal sentencing guidelines are based on a defendant’s offense level, a numeric figure that is calculated based on various factors, including the seriousness of the crime and whether a defendant has a prior criminal record. In Ciavarella’s case, prosecutors initially estimated that his offense level was 34, which corresponds to the 151- to 188-month prison sentence. But Assistant U.S. Attorney William Houser said probation department officials determined the offense level was 44, which translates to a guideline range of life in prison, according to a transcript of a July 20 pre-sentence hearing before U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik. Anthony Harvilla, chief of the federal probation department, said he could not comment on what factors were involved in Ciavarella’s guideline calculation because such information is confidential. Speaking generally, Harvilla said estimates prepared by prosecutors and defense attorneys often differ from the final figure calculated by the probation department. Attorneys will provide the department a “guesstimate” of what they believe the guideline range should be, he said, but they sometimes miss some of factors that serve to increase a defendant’s sentence, known as “enhancements.” “Once sentencing enhancements are applied, that adds to the offense level,” he said.Federal judges utilize the guideline range to help determine an appropriate sentence. The guidelines are advisory, however. A judge is free to issue a shorter or longer sentence. depart above or below them. Ciavarella’s attorneys, William Ruzzo and Al Flora, have challenged the probation department’s guideline calculation, including its decision to classify roughly 5,000 juveniles who appeared before Ciavarella between 2003 and 2008 as “victims” of his Terrie Morgan-Besecker, a Times crimes.

Release of letters regarding Ciavarella sentencing sought By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

WILKES-BARRE – The Times Leader on Monday filed a request with U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik seeking the release of all letters he has received regarding the upcoming sentencing of former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella. A reporter for the newspaper hand delivered a letter to Kosik’s chambers around 11 a.m. Mon-

day. The newspaper is seeking to review all correspondence Kosik has received in support of and against Ciavarella’s interests. Ciavarella, 61, is scheduled to be sentenced by Kosik on Thursday for his conviction on 12 corruption-related charges. During a pre-sentence hearing last month, the judge stated he had received 147 letters regarding the case from across the country.

The Times Leader’s request notes Ciavarella’s case involves a matter of great public concern and interest. Because of that, the paper argued that the identity and comments of persons who wrote to the judge relating to his case should be made public. The release of letters written on behalf of a defendant is up to the discretion of the sentencing judge. In April, U.S. District Judge Richard P. Conaboy

believes her son’s experience with Ciavarella led to her son’s suicide last year. Fonzo had 100 T-shirts made with her son’s photo on the front and phrases such as “Cash for Kids is an American travesty” on the back. She distributed them at the park Monday to those who will attend the hearing as a way to make the presence of the juveniles that Ciavarella incarcerated felt there. At Ciavarella’s pre-sentencing hearing last month, U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik said he was concerned the sentencing would turn into a “circus” if he were to allow juveniles who feel they were victims of Ciavarella to testify at the sentencing. Kosik instead suggested that federal prosecutors advise those who consider themselves victims to send in a letter. He noted he had received 147 letters relating to Ciavarella’s case as of that point. Comments Kosik made during the hearing call into question just how much consideration he will give the letters, however. “I usually only consider any letters that are sent in on behalf of the defendants. I don’t consider public outrage letters or anything like that. And I have not looked at any of those,” he said, according to a transcript of the hearing. “It’s one-sided. It’s unfair,” Wallace said of Kosik’s decision. “If Ciavarella’s family and friends could get up and speak on his behalf at the hearing … why can’t the victims themselves get up and speak and be heard?” Wallace said she did not ask the U.S. Attorney’s Office to allow her

agreed to release the bulk of the letters he had received regarding the case of former Luzerne County Judge Michael Toole, who pleaded guilty to corruption-related charges in November 2010. Kosik had not replied to The Times Leader’s request as of the close of business on Monday. The paper has asked that he rule on the request before Thursday’s sentencing.


Sandy Fonzo handed out T-shirts with a printed image of her late son, Edward Raymond Kenzakoski III, at Kirby Park on Monday.

daughter to testify Thursday, because she was previously told that her daughter would be able to do so until she recently read of Kosik’s decision. “We’re hoping that (wearing the T-shirts) might show some kind of stand and maybe they’ll let a few of them in the courtroom to speak, but I doubt it. Like the judge said, he doesn’t want a three-ring circus. But we just want our kids to be heard. We feel it might help them emotionally,” Wallace said. Jessica Thurston, 23, of Wilkes-

Barre, said Ciavarella sent her to detention when she was 16 because she was with her sister, who was babysitting her when caught shoplifting. Angry that she can’t testify, she plans to wear one of Fonzo’s T-shirts at the hearing. She wants to have an impact on the ex-judge’s sentence. “He needs to be punished the same way we were – locked in a cell for 23 hours and only come out to eat and to walk around in a circle,” Thurston said. Mary Seville, of Dushore, Sullivan County, brought her son and

daughter to the park for T-shirts. Ciavarella incarcerated the children, whose names Seville did not want published, when they lived in Luzerne County. Her son said he would like to testify, “but what good is it going to do? No matter what happens, he still always or usually comes out on top, like he’s always trying to be the good guy when, in reality, he never has been.” Seville’s daughter just wants to confront Ciavarella. “I would like to ask him questions. I don’t understand what kind of person could what he did,” the girl said. Fonzo said she was “told all along” that she would be able to speak at the sentencing hearing. “Now … we’re losing our chance to speak again. (Kosik) has heard our pleas. I don’t know what else to do. I’m offended that he would pre-judge what our behaviors would be, to sit there and say that it would have a negative impact,” Fonzo said. She said Kosik could have set guidelines prohibiting outbursts. “But to totally silence us, it’s an absolute outrage. It’s bias that we won’t get a chance to speak, but Ciavarella will get to speak, his family and friends will get to speak on behalf of his character. What sentencing ever do both sides not get to speak?” “At least with the shirts, they’re going to have to look at the face of one of the kids that was destroyed. They’re going to have to read some words. So, in some way, they will be heard,” Fonzo said.

Pittsburgh zoo’s elephant sperm bank efforts hit a stumbling block The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Zoo officials trying to establish North America’s first elephant sperm bank have been slowed by bureaucratic hurdles but hope South African officials will approve shipping frozen elephant

semen to the United States in about a month. Officials at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium have had difficulty getting export and import permits for 16 liters of semen being stored in the National Zoo’s BioBank in Pretoria, South Afri-

ca, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Monday. “It is taking longer than we hoped, but we knew when we started that it had not been done before,” said Barbara Baker, president and chief executive officer of the Pittsburgh zoo.

Scientists collected the samples last year as part of what’s called Project Frozen Dumbo, a two-year international effort to help preserve elephants and breed them in captivity without having to ship animals from zoo to zoo.

Dianne Petroski August 7, 2011 The Angels gathered near your bed, So very close to you. For they knew the pain and suffering That you were going through. I thought about so many things, As I held tightly to your hand. Oh, how I wished that you were Strong and happy once again. But your eyes were looking homeward, To that place beyond the sky. Where Jesus held His outstretched arms, It was time to say goodbye. I struggled with my selfish thoughts, For I wanted you to stay. So we could walk and talk again, Like we did – just yesterday. But Jesus knew the answer, And I knew He loved you so, So I gave to you life’s greatest gift, The gift of letting go. ianne Barbara Petroski, 65, Dallas, lost her battle with cancer Sunday, August 7, 2011, at General Hospital, Wilkes-Barre.

She was an avid shopper and enjoyed trying out all the local eateries and casinos.

Johnny Cash’s sideman is dead

Bassist Marshall Grant was the last surviving member of The Tennessee Two. By CHRIS TALBOTT AP Entertainment Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Not all pioneers know exactly where they’re going, and that was definitely the case for Johnny Cash & The Tennessee Two. Cash, guitarist Luther Perkins and bassist Marshall Grant — the last surviving member of the group who passed away Sunday morning at age 83 in Jonesboro, Ark., after an aneurysm and stroke — changed the future of American music and popular culture with their distinct boomchicka-boom beat. Grant fell ill after rehearsing for a concert to raise funds for the restoration of Cash’s boyhood home, said Cash’s daughter, Roseanne Cash. Grant always freely admitted the soon-to-be historic trio had no special insight as they shaped that universal beat — a sound that launched a million imitators with songs such as “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues, “Ring of Fire,” “Big River” and “Cry Cry Cry.” “Our inability had more to do with our success than our ability did, and I’m not ashamed of it,” Grant once said in an interview. That statement pierces the heart of just why Cash, Perkins and the steady — both in rhythm and in life — Grant were so special. Grant and Perkins were auto mechanics in Memphis, Tenn., who practiced together at the shop when their co-worker Roy Cash introduced them to his brother, John, in 1954. They quickly realized all three couldn’t play acoustic rhythm guitar, said John Rumble, senior historian at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. So Perkins, who died in 1968 from injuries suffered in a house fire, borrowed a Fender Telecaster with volume controls stuck at wide open, Rumble said, and Grant bought a Kay bass. The resulting sound — The Johnny Cash beat — was both simple and driving, and there from the start. “Luther played the way he did because he couldn’t really play any way else,” Rumble said. “That very sparse, plowing rhythmic sound was something they just fell into. They didn’t just sit there and work on it for weeks. That’s pretty much the way they started out.” After initially failing to impress Sun Records producer Sam Phillips, the trio passed a second audition and began recording in 1955 on a roster that included Elvis Presley and other proto-rockers such as Carl Perkins. They earned modest success quickly and built on it with appearances first on the Louisiana Hayride and eventually the Grand Ole Opry. In time, that simple rhythmic pattern would infiltrate everything. To a young Marty Stuart, that sound coming out of the radio as he grew up in small-town Mississippi was an invitation to dream.

Wyoming discusses revised traffic plan from Wal-Mart W H AT ’ S N E X T

New plan proposes creating parking spots on tree lawns instead of eliminating them.

Council will next meet on Monday, Sept. 12.

By WILLIAM BELL Times Leader Correspondent

WYOMING -- A revised traffic plan from Wal-Mart was the main topic of discussion at Borough Council’s meeting Monday night. Mayor Robert Boyer said WalMart had submitted a revised plan to improve the future traffic flow at 8th Street Corners. He said PennDOT, after completing a traffic study, is requiring a plan for improved traffic flow at 8th Street as part of the

approval process for the planned Wal-Mart in Exeter Borough. The revised plan, as prepared by the retailer, must be approved by Wyoming Borough and PennDOT before approval will be granted for the proposed Exeter Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart’s original suggested plan to the borough involved widening the intersection, with the elimination of 22 parking spaces for local businesses at the intersection. However, WalMart’s revised plan, based on feedback from Wyoming, now

proposes to keep those 22 spaces by creating parking spaces on part of the existing tree lawns. The result would be a four-lane intersection at 8th Street with improved turning lanes and traffic controls. Council President Stephen Nalewajko said this plan was still a draft under review, and the final version would require Wyoming’s approval because the revised traffic plan involved local parking and businesses. Boyer said all costs for the renovations to 8th Street Corners would be the obligation of WalMart Corp. In personnel matters, the mayor announced that Police Chief William Ragantesi has submitted

his intent to retire. The entire process will not be completed until approximately November. Ragantesi started with the borough in 1972 as a part-time officer, and he has been a full-time officer since 1975. Also, council passed a resolu-

tion assigning James Tregan, the street department head, additional duties as borough zoning officer. He will receive an additional $291 a month as zoning officer. The council also authorized the solicitation by request for

proposals for a borough liability/ vehicle insurance packet. Councilman Frank Yurek said the borough will also be reviewing its sanitation collection agreement to see if a request for proposals for that service is required this year or next year.

Hazle Twp. seeks to restore Ebervale Monument By GERI GIBBONS Times Leader Correspondent

HAZLE TWP. – Restoration of the Ebervale Monument was discussed at Monday night’s Board of Supervisors meeting. Joseph Viechec addressed the board, indicating that the monument had been damaged and he asked that the board attempt to repair it. Officials responded that an effort was being made to solicit funds and building materials for the project from local businesses. “Hazle Township sent 150 men to World War II,” said Viechec.

“They deserve this memorial.” In another matter, council indicated that the Beltway Expansion Project was progressing. The beltway is being expanded from two to three lanes. Two additional traffic lights were also approved by the board for the road. “The township has grown rapidly in the last 20 years,” said Supervisor William Gallagher. “The project will provide better access to such areas as Wal-Mart and the Laurel Mall for area residents.” Council also discussed the pos-

sibility of paving the area between Wal-Mart and the mall in order to make travel in that area safer for area residents, but said funds for the paving were not yet available. “It’s possible that that project will be completed in the future,” said Gallagher, indicating that various opportunities for improvement were being considered.

It’s drill at will even minus a shill


ORMER GOV. TOM Ridge won’t shill for the pro-drilling public relations machine known as the Marcellus Shale Coalition much longer, now that his one-year, $900,000 contract with the natural gas industry booster has expired. And why should he? The coalition doesn’t need to spend six figures on a “strategic advisor” of Ridge’s stature when, for all intents and purposes, the industry’s strategy in Pennsylvania these days is simple: It does what it wants. It has met with minimal resistance so far. The Legislature seemingly can’t – and Republican Gov. Tom Corbett emphatically won’t – act to slow the surge of new exploration across the state’s Northern Tier, despite public health and environmental concerns about the water-intensive drilling technique called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Nor can elected officials in Harrisburg agree to collect an extraction fee from the industry, which is commonplace in other states. So for now, drilling firms

that enter the Keystone State essentially get a free pass to siphon the prized fuel without putRidge ting any money toward a cleanup fund to handle potential future consequences. That’s a fantasy come true for the out-of-state energy companies and their shareholders, but spooky for state taxpayers who – as they did after the anthracite era burned out – might get stuck with astronomical expenses. Whether Ridge worries much about the natural gas boom’s possible negative impacts on the people and landscapes of Pennsylvania remains unknown but to him.

Is panel destined to repeat history?


ONGRESS AND President Obama took a small step toward stabilizing the federal government’s finances with their last-minute deal to increase the nation’s debt ceiling. But they punted the next, even more important and more difficult phase of deficit-cutting work to a12-member super-committee. There, as Yogi Berra would say, it’s starting to look like déjà vu all over again. While congressional leaders haven’t picked members of the super-committee yet, the battle lines are shaping up in a way that’s distressingly familiar. Democrats insist revenues have to be part of any realistic and fair long-term solution – and they’re right. Republicans are sticking with their nonnegotiable demands: If the question is taxes, the answer is no, no, no. These congressional Republicans are ignoring a stark reality. Federal revenues right now are barely more than 14 percent of the U.S. economy – the lowest level in more than 40 years. Those low federal revenues are the product of overly generous tax cuts and the terrible economy. In recent decades, federal revenues have run closer to 18 percent of the economy, while federal spending has typically been 20 to 21 percent.

If low taxes alone could cure the economy, we’d be well on our way to full health again. This year, federal spending spiked up to 24 percent of the nation’s economic output, producing a budget gap of $1.4 trillion. Running such a huge deficit was a deliberate decision, however, meant to breathe life into a moribund economy. Without the boost from new federal spending, the economic free fall caused by 2008’s Wall Street panic might have led to a depression. But today’s slow and disappointing economic progress has come at a cost. The $1.4 trillion deficit is about 40 percent of the federal budget. No Congress, not even one with 535 tea-party acolytes, could seriously consider cutting the federal budget by 40 percent. Such a huge and immediate cut would shove the economy back into free fall. Of course, the government can’t continue borrowing 40 cents of every dollar it spends. The record-breaking peacetime deficit needs to shrink, in a phased and careful way that doesn’t derail the economic recovery. To do that, Congress only has two tools: spending cuts and raising revenues. The job is so big it requires both. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Investing in early learning will spur economic growth WHILE PRESIDENT Obama and congressional leaders work to hammer out future spending plans, we cannot lose sight of what is needed to strengthen America’s work force and get Pennsylvania’s economy growing again. Though early learning advocates (including my organization, Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children) have been saying for years that investing in early childhood education is a fiscally responsible way to reduce deficits and generate long-term gains for children and taxpayers, it bears repeating. According to research by Nobel Laureate economist James Heckman, investing in early childhood education is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve education, health and economic outcomes for participants, as well as to lower the costs to society of people dependent on social programs. Over a lifetime, children who are exposed to high-quality early learning will be healthier, more self-sufficient and less likely to enter the criminal justice system. They’re more likely to stay in school and graduate and less likely to become teen parents. Those real cost savings add up to as much as a 10 percent annual economic return for communities.

I sat and listened for weeks to the vitriolic abuse from the Democrats as to how the Republicans and the tea party members were terrorists. The Republicans and, yes, tea party-leaning members of Congress fought for weeks to bring spending cuts to the table, and the Democrats responded with TV spots depicting a Rep. Paul Ryan-like stand-in pushing seniors off a cliff. Obama has known of this possibility since April, when Standard & Poor’s warned him if he did not get spending under control, the nation’s credit rating would be downgraded. Yet he pushed a budget in May that died in the Senate on a 0-97 vote – a budget that would have continued to increase spending.

well what was coming. John Chambers, S&P’s managing director, wanted $4 trillion in cuts. The Republicans fought the good fight and took it down to the wire in an effort to get a deal that the Democratic-led Senate and Obama could accept and yet meet that $4 trillion mark, but it wasn’t good enough. The only plan put forth that met that bar was the Republican-developed “Cut, Cap and Balance,” which passed the House and was tabled in the Senate; but we were told that had it passed the Senate, Obama would have vetoed it. Remember, Obama wanted a “clean bill.” In spite of being told in April that the nation would be downgraded, he was doing nothing to avert it. Why?


It has been 828 days since the Democrats have even so much as proposed a budget, let alone brought one to the floor for a vote. Again, I ask: Why? James Wallace Wilkes-Barre

Choose plant-based diet over factory-farmed meat


n light of the recent recall of salmonellatainted turkey, factory farming/agribusiness has once again reared its ugly head. In some instances, animals used for food are cruelly raised in unnatural confinement and environments. They are under tremendous stress and highly susceptible to disease and viruses. This, in turn, is passed on to humans who consume these animals. Not only did these birds endure suffering and deprivation in their short lives, their sacrifice has been reduced to recall and garbage. A plant-based diet is more sensible, healthy, environmentally friendly and humane. For information, visit this website: Patricia Marks Wilkes-Barre



Obama: Contrast in parties’ paths clear By ERICA WERNER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says there’s some good news from the bitterly partisan debt debate — it made people so frustrated with Washington that Democrats will be able to draw a clear divide with Republicans heading into the 2012 election. The president said Monday that the public thought divided government might make some sense — but not dysfunctional government. And he said he thinks they’re not persuaded by what he described as the Republican strategy of slashing spending on social programs. “They’re not buying that bill of goods,” Obama said at a campaign event. “The good news is that I think there has been enough frustration at Washington, sort of reached a fevered pitch last week, that we’re now looking at 16 months in which there’s going to be a clear contrast and a clear choice,” he said. He described the upcoming election as even more consequential than the 2008 contest that catapulted him into the White House, saying that more is at stake, and “The alternative visions being presented are even starker now than I think they were before.” The president spoke at two Democratic National Committee events Monday night in Washington. He made reference at both to tough days in the stock market. “We’ve had a couple of very difficult days in the stock market, but the truth of the matter is, is that the challenges go beyond the stock market,” he said.

Toomey: Congress changed since I was in House

Process breakdown By ANDREW M. SEDER

WILKES-BARRE – As U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey sat in a Times Leader conference room Monday speaking about the nation’s economy, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was plummeting – down nearly 340 points – underscoring his point that real efforts must address underlying issues. ONLINE That issue is To see video, something scan this QR code into your Toomey smartphone or said the visit www.tiAmerican mesleaderpeople sent .com. elected officials to Washington this year to address. “The big mandate of the last election was to get our house in order,” said Toomey, R-Zionsville. He said the Senate in particular and the government as a whole is “dysfunctional.” And he said the American people should be “frustrated” with what’s going on and more so with what’s not. He said his own personal level of frustration has risen since he was sworn in as one of Pennsylvania’s two senators on Jan. 5. The former House member – he represented the state’s 15th District in the Lehigh Valley from 1999 to 2005 – said things have certainly changed in the six years he was out of office. Toomey, who made several stops in Northeastern Pennsylvania on Monday, including Luzerne, Wyoming, Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties, said the biggest change has been the seeming lack of tried-andtrue processes in Congress that have been around for centuries. “We have a completely dysfunctional Senate; a generally dysfunctional government,” Toomey said, laying most of the blame at the feet of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada. “The big change from when I was in the House is

we actually went through the process. I was on the budget committee. We had multiple competing budget resolutions … and one of them eventually emerged as the successful budget. We moved it over to the Senate, then the Senate did its work and the two were reconciled in the textbook fashion in which our federal government bicameral legislation is supposed to work.” “That’s the biggest difference that’s been stark to me, just the total breakdown of an ordinary process. At the end of the day if you don’t have any process, you end up with these very dysfunctional results we’ve seen in the last few weeks,” said Toomey, 49. Problems not new He said the problems are not new and have not developed over the past year or two. And while he agreed that President Barack Obama “certainly inherited a very tough economic set of circumstances,” he added that “through the policies that he’s pursued, he’s made it worse. By measure after measure we have a worse economy today than we have had in a long time.” He said a balanced budget is a top priority, and residents should be urging elected officials to get the budget

in order, curtail spending and get the country’s finances in order because what’s happening in Washington is impacting every corner of the nation, and by extension, the world since we’re in a global economy. “The truth is we put ourselves in a terrible fiscal hole. For decades we had debt as a percentage of our economy that hovered around 40 percent. Today the debt as a percentage of our economy is over 70 percent and we’re on a path for that to reach 100 percent.” He added that “the picture is bad and it’s going to look worse.” Balanced budget One of only two members of Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation to vote against last week’s debt ceiling vote, Toomey said he wanted to “see immediate cuts in spending and reforms that would put us on the path to a balanced budget.” “The thing that’s maddening to me is we have an administration and many in Congress who don’t even want to acknowledge the possibility; don’t even want to have a discussion about this,” Toomey added. “They think the more we borrow and spend, the better off we’ll be. And that’s ridiculous.”

but economists don’t expect much to come out of the meeting. The central bank’s key interest rate is already at a record of nearly zero, where it has been since 2008. The Vix, a measure of market volatility and fear among investors, rose 50 percent to its highest level since February 2007. Investors desperately looked for safe places to put their money and settled on U.S. government debt — even though it was the target of the downgrade Friday, when S&P removed the United States from its list of the lowest-risk countries. The price of Treasurys rose sharply, and yields, which move in the opposite direction from price, plunged. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.34 percent from 2.57 percent Friday. That matches its low for the year, reached last week. Before last Friday, there was widespread concern that a downgrade would push yields up and increase borrowing costs. “This is largely a flight to safety,” said Thomas Simons, money market economist with Jefferies & Co. Money flowed out of stocks and into Treasurys. Gold set a record. It rose $61.40 an ounce to settle at $1,713.20. Crude oil, natural gas and other commodities fell sharply on worries that a weaker global economy will mean less demand. Oil fell 6.4 percent to $81.31 per barrel, its lowest price of the year. Fear is spreading quickly through the market, said Dimitre Genov, senior portfolio manager with Artio Global Investors. “It’s becoming a vicious cycle and could feed into consumers reducing their demand as well.”

The Dow was down 5.5 percent at 10,809.85. The sharp drop extended Wall Street’s almost uninterrupted decline since late July, when the Dow was flirting with 13,000. It fell below 11,000 for the first time since November. The S&P 500 fell 79.92, or 6.7 percent, to 1,119.49. The Nasdaq composite index fell 174.72, or 6.9 percent, to 2,357.69. Trading volume was the highest since September 2008 and the fourth-highest on record. A total of 9.9 billion shares traded, and about 70 stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Stock markets in Asia began Monday’s global rout. The main stock index fell almost 4 percent in South Korea and more than 2 percent in Japan. European markets opened later and fell, too, with Germany down 5 percent and France 4.7 percent. In the U.S., stocks fell even as Moody’s, another major credit rating agency, stood by its top rating of Aaa for the U.S. It said it could downgrade the U.S. if it doesn’t cut its deficit, “but it is early to conclude that such measures will not be forthcoming.” Markets also did not appear comforted by an afternoon statement by President Barack Obama, who said Washington needs more “common sense and compromise” to tame its debt. “Markets will rise and fall,” he said. “But this is the United States of America. No matter what some agency may say, we’ve always been and always will be a triple-A country.” S&P, in its downgrade, criticized dysfunction in the American political system. Last week, the Dow Jones industrial average fell almost 700 points. That was its biggest weekly point loss since 2008, during the financial crisis.


Paul Cwalina, a financial advisor with Edward Jones, looks at the end-of-day reports on Monday.

Local financial advisors tell clients not to panic

What Monday’s dive reinforced ket but not in need of money now, selling was not the best option. was need for investors to “It’s not often a good thing to sell diversify, pros say. after a dramatic sell off,” he said. If By ANDREW M. SEDER

As financial advisors in the region watched the worst single day plunge in stock prices since 2008 they advised their own clients not to mimic the selling. If anything, some said, Monday’s massive selloff could be a reason to buy today. Of course, that’s dependent on having the money, said Bob Graham, president of Riggs Asset Management, a Wilkes-Barre-based private wealth management firm. Ed Kotarsky, a certified financial planner with Ameriprise Financial on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard at Market Street in Wilkes-Barre, said he was surprised not to be inundated with calls from investors on Monday as the market dropped. From those who did call, he said the concerns and questions were logical. “I can understand why people are upset about it,” Kotarsky said. Paul K. Cwalina, a financial advisor with the Edward Jones location on Public Square, said his phone “was quieter than I expected.” Those who did call were troubled by what was happening on Wall Street. “Clients are certainly nervous,” Cwalina said. “They were asking for advice on what they should do.” He said his advice varied from client to client. “It’s always different from investor to investor,” Cwalina said. He said primarily for those who are deeply invested in the stock mar-

anything, the opposite might be the sound option. “If you’re in it for the long term, I think you’re picking up some good buys,” Cwalina said. Kotarsky said he can’t tell if Monday’s dramatic drop “is the bottom,” but he said investors should not react for the sake of reacting. “Let it ride out if you don’t need the money (right away),” Kotarsky said. What Monday’s plunge reinforced for Cwalina was the need for investors to diversify. The ideal goal for most investors is to have “a balanced portfolio, well-rounded, diverse,” Cwalina said. In the meantime, Kotarsky said he hoped Monday’s freefall would be followed by a Tuesday “bounce back.” “After a day like (Monday) you would expect to see a rebound. At least you would hope. If not (today), then the next day,” Kotarsky said. Graham said the recent slide on Wall Street – the Dow has lost 1,816 points since July 22 -- is a symptom of the nation’s fiscal health. “We’re not managing our country in a responsible manner and have not for some time,” Graham said. He said no one can predict the market’s future, including whether Monday’s selloff indicates a bottom in stock prices. “I think it’s going to be a challenging environment for some time,” Graham said.








JoePa says he will return soon Penn State coach injures arm and hip when a player hits him during a drill at practice.


Penn State coach Joe Paterno remains hospitalized but is not expected to need surgery after being injured in a collision with a player during practice on Sunday.


Tiger’s roar not as loud

Paterno suffered injuries to his right arm and hip when he was blindsided by wide receiver Devon Smith, the school said Monday. Paterno was in between Paterno fields at the team’s Holuba Hall indoor practice facility and was facing the other direction while observing the defense when Smith ran into him.

The entire incident was similar to a much more serious collision during a 2006 game at Wisconsin in which 6foot-5 tight end Andrew Quarless collided with him at the end of a play. Paterno required surgery to repair a broken left leg and multiple torn knee ligaments. His latest injuries are to his right side. Fortunately for Paterno, this collision came with one of the team’s

The 84-year-old coach reportedly sustained a hairline fracture to his pelvis, but Penn State said Paterno will likely be released some time today. “I expect to be back at practice soon,” Paterno said in a statement. “I’m doing fine; tell everyone not to worry about me. I like the effort I have seen from the squad during our first few practices, but we have a long way to go to get ready for the schedule we have.”

A symbolic rivalry

Fallen superstar no longer intimidates his rivals as he continues search for game. By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Tiger Woods stepped from behind a microphone, thankful to be done with a short interview that felt like an intrusion. He took 23 questions, most of them about his golf, a few others about his left leg, then walked off without looking at anyone. “That’s why you guys listen,” he muttered under his breath, “and I play.” He was as dismissive as ever, another example of how much has changed in his world, and how little he realizes it. He is not the Tiger Woods he once was. Such bravado used to be acWoods cepted from Woods because he always backed it up. On the golf course, he set an unparalleled standard of excellence. Starting Thursday, he’ll compete in the PGA Championship without having won anything in nearly two years. His agent said he once rejected 100 emails a day from companies wanting to get involved with the world’s most famous athlete. In the 16 months since Woods returned from a sex scandal, he still doesn’t have a corporate logo on his golf bag. His only new endorsement is a Japanese heat rub. One thing that still looks the same is that red shirt on Sunday, yet even that has lost some of its meaning. “That’s his trademark,” Graeme McDowell said. “Really, I think that’s all it is right now. What it means to him is obviously a different thing. What it means to the rest of us ... it’s not really something to be intimidated by anymore.” McDowell, who won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach last summer, still considers Woods to be a special player. But after more than a year of finishing in the middle of the pack, or finishing the final round before the leaders even tee off, or not even playing because of recurring injuries to his left leg, Woods is more like just another player in the field. No. 1 in the world a year ago, he’s now No. 30. “Mystique is not something that’s measurable,” McDowell said. “It’s when you stand on the tee box with him and you get the feeling you’re in the presence of greatness. When someone shows themselves as flawed and human ... what Tiger was doing all for years and years was superhuman. He was imposing himself on players just by being there. “Until he starts winning again, See WOODS, Page 4B


Con McCole and Rich Owens train for the Wilkes-Barre Triathlon Monday in Kirby Park.

Owens, McCole represent race tradition

By RYAN KONOPKI For The Times Leader


LEHMAN TWP. -- Rich Owens and Con McCole having been racing together at the Wilkes-Barre Triathlon for nearly 30 years, yet only one will admit their friendship makes for anything but a rivalry. “It’s friendly, but it’s not competitive,” said Owens, who has known McCole since both were in their mid-20s. “We have good triathletes in our area, but I’m not one of them.” Owens and McCole, along with hundreds of other competitors, are set to swim, bike and run Sunday at the 30th annual Wilkes-Barre Triathlon. This year marks the 29th time both men have raced together -- Owens missed the event in 2008 because of an illness.

Part three of a seven part series SUNDAY: The race’s origins MONDAY: The race’s effect WEDNESDAY: The volunteers

McCole said with a laugh. “We bust each other all the time; it’s all fun.” At 52, McCole -- who has competed in every Wilkes-Barre Triathlon in its 30year history -- was willing to confess that after three decades of racing, his body feels every stride, pedal and stroke during competitions. “I feel like I’m going to be 53 at the end of August,” he said. “I feel it. I’m not immune to anything. At times it’s a struggle. It’s not easy.” Joanne Gensel, the triathlon race director since 1990, said that while competitors like Owens and McCole make the event exciting, there are other factors that make the event as popular as it is. “Mainly the volunteers and the way it’s

The triathlon will start at Harveys Lake with a 1.5-kilometer swim, transition to a bike stage that consists of a 40-kilometer ride to the Penn State Wilkes Barre campus in Lehman and wraps up with an 11kilometer run that will end near the recreational center on campus. While the 55-year-old Owens was open about the dominance his friend of more than 30 years has had against him, McCole was equally willing to accept Owens’ proclamation. “I’m glad he said it and not me,” See TRIATHLON, Page 4B


Gwinnett’s Redmond keeps SWB in check

Right-hander strikes out 10 as the Braves extend lead to two games over Yankees in race for the wild card. By DAVE ROSENGRANT


Jorge Vazquez eyes his hit during Monday night’s game at PNC Field.

MOOSIC – The Gwinnett starting rotation is loaded with pitching prospects nearly ready to make the jump to Atlanta. One of those pitchers who isn’t recognized as a top prospect is Todd Redmond, even though he leads the International League in earned run average. The 26-year-old right-hander, who took the hill on Monday at PNC Field to face Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, had only allowed more than three runs in a start just three times this season in 22 starts entering Monday night. So when his team scored three runs against Yankee starter Greg Smith, Redmond seemed to be in good shape as he helped the Braves to a 3-1 victory. Redmond pitched seven innings and struck out a season-high 10 giving up just See YANKEES, Page 4B






Getting the message, then delivering one


hrough the agony of driving around in a high-speed race car on a broken ankle for a few hours, Brad Keselowski kept reminding himself of one thing. His injury may have hurt like heck. But his anguish couldn’t compare to the hell that is war. Keselowski was reminded of that last week during a conversation with a cousin who’s serving in Afghanistan as a member of the Navy Seals. And the telling conversation may have sealed Keselowski’s resolve to make it all the way through the Good Sam RV Insurance 500 at Pocono Raceway. “It was inspirational for me,” Keselowski said. The tale his cousin told him would be enough to motivate anyone. A chopper went down in Afghanistan last weekend. One of his cousin’s friends died in the crash. And it was a stark reminder that driving around a race track to victory on a broken ankle and bad back isn’t nearly as heroic as what real heroes do while fighting the War on Terror. “I might not be feeling great, but those are the guys who are really making sacrifices,” Keselowski said. “We’re just driving race cars for a living. We’re not curing cancer or saving the world like those guys are. “It kind of put things in perspective.” That’s not to say Keselowski’s victory shouldn’t be viewed as extraordinary. He wasn’t even expected to start the race at Pocono, let alone make it through 200 laps and into Victory Lane after suffering a violent practice crash Wednesday at Road Atlanta. The wreck left him with one broken ankle, made the other one very sore and sent pain shooting through Keselowski’s back. But it was going to be a pain in the neck for anyone trying to stop Keselowski from firing his engine at Pocono or putting backup driver Sam Hornish behind the wheel of his No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge. “I said I wasn’t getting out of my damn car,” Keselowski said. He didn’t, to the admiration of just about everyone who watched Keselowski maneuver his way past the field. “I was amazed he raced the whole race,” said third-place finisher Kurt Busch, Keselowski’s teammate. “Just for Brad to be able to be in the car this week was an accomplishment,” said Keselowski’s crew chief Paul Wolfe, “after seeing that wreck and what he had to go through.” The physical anguish Keselowski endured to get himself ready to race four days after being battered in a violent crash would test the willpower of anyone. He admitted to being helped by some will from above, as a rain delay that lasted 1 hour, 40 minutes may have been a blessing in terms of relieving some stress from spending an extended afternoon sitting in a race car. But his hardships were more than he could have imagined. Keselowski said he cut his hand shifting with a blister he had forgotten about during the race. And there were times when the pain from his ankles and his back made him wonder why he had to be so stubborn about driving. It was during those periods when he allowed his mind to drift overseas. “Whenever I felt like ‘This hurts, I don’t want to do this, I want to get out’ that was good inspiration,” Keselowski said of our nation’s soldiers, “on what it means to man up and make it happen. “Because it (his pain) is really not that bad (by comparison).” What Keselowski accomplished Sunday was nothing short of courageous. But he drew his incentive from real men of courage.

Kotchman’s HR lifts Rays to win The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Casey Kotchman had an eventful night, hitting a game-winning homer and avoiding a whip cream pie in the face from teammate Evan Longoria during a postgame celebration. Kotchman led off the ninth inning with a home run to lift the Tampa Bay Rays to a 2-1 win over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night. “I don’t get either one very often,” Kotchman said. Kotchman drove the first pitch from Blake Wood (5-1) over the center field fence. He also knocked in the other Tampa Bay run with a run-scoring single that tied it in the seventh. “How about Casey?” Rays manager Joe Maddon said. “Those balls were properly struck. Kotch has been hitting like that all year. It’s fun to watch.” Kotchman, who has seven multihit outings over his last 10 games, is hitting .341 this season. The greeting he received from the welcoming committee at the plate was a blur. “Just kind of numb,” he said. It was Kotchman’s first walkoff hit since he had an RBI single in the Los Angeles Angels’ 2-1 victory over Texas on July 13, 2007. The first baseman has three homers over the last six games after going deep just four times in 93 games to start the season. Rays closer Kyle Farnsworth (4-1) pitched a perfect ninth to earn the win. Luke Hochevar allowed one run and five hits over seven innings for the Royals. The right-hander, who had won his previous three starts, had seven strikeouts and two walks. Rays rookie Jeremy Hellickson, 3-0 in four starts during July, gave up one run and six hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out seven and walked three. “It was a great game,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “There was outstanding pitching from both starters.” Tampa Bay tied it at 1 in the seventh when Ben Zobrist drew a one-out walk, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on Kotchman’s single. “Just happy to get the ’W,”’ Kotchman said. Eric Hosmer put the Royals ahead 1-0 on a first-inning RBI single. Alex Gordon, who had been hitless in his first 37 atbats at Tropicana Field, hit a leadoff double and later scored on Hosmer’s opposite-field hit to left.

White Sox 7, Orioles 6

BALTIMORE — A.J. Pierzynski homered and drove in three runs, Alex Rios singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles for their fourth straight victory. Gordon Beckham also connected for the White Sox, who blew a four-run lead before rallying to secure their seasonhigh sixth consecutive win on the road. Third-place Chicago moved within five games of the lead in the AL Central. After J.J. Hardy hit a threerun homer in the seventh off Jesse Crain (6-3) to put Baltimore up 6-5, the White Sox regained the lead against Jim Johnson (5-4). Paul Konerko walked, Carlos Quentin singled and Pierzynski hit a sacrifice fly to tie it. Rios then singled to score Quentin. Red Sox 8, Twins 6

MINNEAPOLIS — David Ortiz had four hits and three RBIs and delivered the goahead single with two outs in the ninth inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to an 8-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Ortiz, a former Twin, hit a two-run homer in the sixth and finished a triple shy of the cycle. Jarrod Saltalamacchia added a homer and two RBIs to help the Red Sox win for the fifth time in seven games and move 11⁄2 games ahead of the idle Yankees in the AL East. Marco Scutaro chipped in three hits and Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 25th save. Jason Kubel had a homer among his three hits and two RBIs for the Twins, who have lost five in a row. Rangers 9, Mariners 2

ARLINGTON, Texas — Matt Harrison pitched seven strong innings for his career-high 10th victory, Nelson Cruz homered, and the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners. Harrison (10-8) allowed two runs and five hits with six strikeouts and no walks in 104-degree heat, surpassing his nine-win rookie season in 2008. Cruz, Mitch Moreland and Yorvit Torrealba all had three hits for the AL West-leading Rangers, who stretched their lead over second-place Los Angeles to 1 1-2 games. The Angels had the night off. The Rangers scored twice in the second against rookie Charlie Furbush (1-1) with the help of the Mariners’ second error of the night.


Duda leads Mets’ rally against Bell for victory The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Lucas Duda’s two-run single capped a three-run ninth against AllStar closer Heath Bell, and the banged-up New York Mets rallied past the San Diego Padres 9-8 on Monday night. Angel Pagan, Jason Bay and David Wright homered for the Mets, who started strong and finished with a flourish after putting their top two hitters on the disabled list. Shortstop Jose Reyes is sidelined with a strained left hamstring, the same problem that landed the NL’s leading hitter on the disabled list for 16 days last month. Daniel Murphy, who filled in admirably for injured first baseman Ike Davis, is likely done for the season because of a left knee injury. Pagan moved up to Reyes’ spot at the top of the lineup and hit his third career leadoff homer.

Braves 8, Marlins 5

MIAMI — Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 29 games and Alex Gonzalez hit a three-run homer to help the Atlanta Braves beat the slumping Florida Marlins. Uggla beat out a grounder to short for an infield single in the fifth inning to extend the longest active hitting streak in the majors. He’s tied with Rowland Office for the secondlongest streak in franchise history behind Rico Carty’s 31 in a row in 1970. After Uggla and Chipper Jones singled, Gonzalez hit his 10th home run off Brad Hand (1-4). Uggla added a sacrifice fly in the sixth against his former team. Freddie Freeman, whose career-best 20-game hitting streak ended Sunday, had a two-run single. Derek Lowe (7-10), who had lost his past three starts, allowed two runs in six innings.

Victorino suspended 3 games, appeals By JANIE McCAULEY AP Baseball Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino is appealing a threegame suspension imposed Monday for his part in a weekend brawl at San Francisco. A pair of Giants players who expected one-game suspensions only received fines after playing key roles in the benches-clearing brawl between NL division leaders Friday night. Nobody was injured. Major League Baseball also fined Victorino an undisclosed amount. Victorino declined to address the suspension Monday night as the NL East-leading Phillies opened a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco, Giants pitcher Ramon Ramirez and catcher Eli Whiteside were fined as well. Victorino, Ramirez and Whiteside were ejected. “Victorino’s aggressive actions prolonged the bench-clearing incident between the Clubs,” the commissioner’s office said in announcing the penalties. Victorino can continue to play until the appeal process is complete. Philadelphia was eliminated by San Francisco in six games last fall in the NL championship series. The Giants went on to win the franchise’s first World Series title since moving West in 1958. “I thought it was well done,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of MLB’s decisions. “And I’m not saying that because we didn’t have any suspensions. It was pretty clean out there.” The trouble broke out Friday night in the sixth inning after Ramirez hit Victorino in the lower back with a pitch, moments after Jimmy Rollins stole second with a six-run lead — a move Giants outfielder Carlos Beltran criticized afterward. Victorino began walking toward the mound as the benches cleared. Victorino later pushed plate umpire Mike Muchlinski trying to get back into the fracas. Victorino was held back by Giants bench coach Ron Wotus and Phillies hitting coach Greg Gross, then also escaped the grasp of manager Charlie Manuel. Polanco said afterward he was trying to protect Victorino. Victorino and Manuel thought Ramirez plunked the center fielder on purpose, something Ramirez denied Monday in his first comments about the brawl. He did expect to receive a one-game suspension. Whiteside tackled Polanco in the skirmish after Polanco came charging in from second base. “They were the ones that provoked it,” Manuel said Monday. “Vic probably felt like he had to stand up for himself.”

six hits and one run in the outing, which consisted of 100 pitches, 65 for strikes. His ninth and 10th Ks came at an appropriate time when the Yankees had an opportunity to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh. With Jordan Parraz on third, Greg Golson on second and one out in the inning, Redmond (8-8) struck out Doug Bernier and Kevin Russo swinging. “He did a good job of keeping balls out of the middle of the plate,” Bernier said. “He looked like a guy who can kind of spot up and throw pitches where he wanted to and he did a good job of that.” After having a few rough outings, Smith (3-3) put together his third straight quality start (at least six innings pitched and less than three earned runs allowed). He lasted six innings only giving up four hits and three runs. He struck out five, but he also walked five and was hurt by the base on balls as two of them came around to score. Gwinnett, which entered the contest one game ahead of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the race for the IL Wild Card spot and two games behind co-leaders Lehigh Valley and Pawtucket, got to Smith in the top of the third when it opened a 2-0 lead. After loading the bases against the Yankee left-hander with two outs, Brandon Hicks lined a double over the head of left fielder Chris Dickerson to plate two. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre cut the lead in half to 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth when it manufactured a run. Dickerson led off the frame with a single and stole second. He moved to third on a flyout by Jorge Vazquez and was plated on

Predictably, the coach remained with the team for the rest of the practice and walked away after the accident before being persuaded to get checked out at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

a single from Mike Lamb (3for-4). The Braves tacked on a run in the sixth when Brandon Hicks and Ruben Gotay performed a double steal of third and second. Hicks scored when Yankee third baseman Brandon Laird couldn’t handle the throw and it got away allowing the third run to score. The Yankees had another opportunity in the eighth and ninth. They loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth, but couldn’t push anything across. Then in the ninth, they had runners on first and third before Jesus Montero flied out right in front of the right field fence to end the game. “It’s frustrating that we didn’t come through and we did have our opportunities a couple times where we had them and just needed that big hit and we didn’t get it,” Bernier added. “Those are the things that are kind of frustrating.” Reliever Josh Schmidt kept the Yankees in the game relieving Smith and pitching three hitless frames only allowing a pair of walks. Notes: The Yankees granted left-hander J.C. Romero his release prior to Monday’s game. The reliever pitched 12 2/3 innings for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre posting a 2.92 ERA with10 strikeouts and five walks. No corre-

he’s not going to get that back.” Some things haven’t changed. Woods still draws the biggest crowds, tournaments sell more tickets and golf is more interesting when he plays. Among his peers, he has always been popular because of the way he plays golf and because the TV interest he created made them all rich. They love having him as a teammate at the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. He is one of the guys that week. But do they really know him? Did they ever? Mark O’Meara was his best friend, more like a big brother, for many years until O’Meara remarried and moved to Houston. They talk sporadically and see each other even less. Woods remains close to Notah Begay, who rarely plays on tour these days. He plays practice rounds with Arjun Atwal, another member at Isleworth Country Club, outside Orlando. Stewart Cink was among his biggest supporters when Woods first was exposed for cheating on his wife after Thanksgiving 2009. They have been playing golf since they were juniors and joined the PGA Tour about the same time. Cink once told a story of how his mother went back onto the course after his round because she wanted to watch Woods play. “I don’t feel like I know him as well as I used to,” Cink said. “I never knew him that well, but now I feel like I hardly know him at all. I wouldn’t say that’s a big difference. I think he may be gun shy about getting close to people, either his fellow competitors like me, caddies, the media. He’s a really private guy. But once you get to know him, he’s really good to be around. “He’s not out here to be social. That’s not his goal,” Cink said. “He has a big sheet of goals to accomplish. His social life is not his No. 1 priority, nor should it

be.” Now that Woods has moved into his new home in south Florida, he has practiced on occasion at the Bear’s Club, home of Jack Nicklaus. Robert Allenby saw him there two weeks ago and said he felt Woods seemed more at ease with his life. At tournaments, he sees no change. “We see him come out and practice, play and get out of here,” Allenby said. “He’s always been a big one to save his energy for the tournaments. But that’s the beauty of Tiger. A lot of stuff has happened in his life. When it comes to his golf, he still tried to keep that the same. That’s impressive. I know what it’s like to go through a divorce, and it can get seriously ugly.” That falls in line with what Woods said in 2000 to Golf Digest senior writer Jaime Diaz, who has been around Woods longer than any other journalist. “To live a sane life, I have to be ruthless sometimes. Put up a wall, be cold, say no. If I didn’t, I would never have my own time and space, which is vital to me to achieve what I want in life.” Even so, some of his peers thought he would return a different person — perhaps spend a little more time in the locker room, or play charity events for other players beyond his closest friends. For all he’s done to wreck his image, most everyone on tour wants to see him return to greatness. Even though there is a new wave of players starting to emerge, like U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, it’s hard to find anyone who won’t say that golf still needs Woods. “Tiger still is golf, really,” McDowell said. “It’s exciting to have him back.” Cink could see parallels with David Duval, an enigma when he was No. 1 in the world, portraying a coldness behind those wraparound shades. His game went into a freefall, partially brought on by injuries, and when Duval was at his lowest, he showed a softer side and became more appealing.

GWA stays alive

The team postponed its annual preseason media day, which had been scheduled for Thursday. What remains to be seen is how this latest ailment will affect Paterno’s mobility. Apart from his surgeries in 2006, Paterno was forced off of his feet in 2008 when he severely injured his hip while demonstrating an onside kick during a September practice. Paterno held off on hip replacement surgery until after the season – nearly three months – and coached most of the campaign from the booth

with several of his assistants. He used a cane to get around and spent practices on a golf cart driven by long-time aide Tommy Venturino. Though Paterno put a positive spin on spending Saturdays in the coaches booth, he admitted after that season that he would have considered retirement if he wasn’t able to return to the sideline. Paterno’s contract expires after this season. Last month he said once again that he plans to coach the Lions for the foreseeable future.

competitors for the 1988 U.S. National Championships and serving as a qualifier for the Hawaii Ironman competition in 1992, 1993 and 1998. “That was very fun and very enjoyable,” said Gensel. While the triathlon has helped bring in people from around the country for its events, it also serves as a chance for a certain tandem to catch up on their numerous memories. “A lot of people look forward to

it, especially Con and I,” said Owens, a Wilkes-Barre firefighter and the best man at McCole’s wedding. “We don’t get to see each other as often anymore.” The two will also have different approaches to Sunday’s event. Owens will try to break the three-hour mark for the first time in 12 years, and McCole hopes to do as well as the previous year with no expectations on his mind. “I don’t need to look at it in a

different way,” McCole said. “I pretty much know where I should be. I have a pretty good feel for it.” Owens also hopes to one day earn his own personal victory against his best friend. He wants to finish with as many years raced in the triathlon as McCole, which will require a little extra longetivity to outlast him. “I’m going to do it until Con quits,” he said. “Then I’m going to do it more year.”


Michigan football coach Brady Hoke speaks during a news conference following the team’s football practice Monday.

Michigan’s Hoke has list of dislikes from practice By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan coach Brady Hoke liked the spirit and energy he saw and sensed from his first preseason practice with the Wolverines. “It was good. Was it the greatest practice I’ve been around? No,” Hoke said Monday night. “I’ve got about 15 things to go over that I probably didn’t like. “I’m a hard guy to please because we want to be the best.” College football’s winningest program has not been among the best lately, struggling so much over three seasons that Rich Rodriguez lost his job in January. Hoke’s arrival has generated a lot of excitement and higher expectations, but he knows there’s a lot of work that needs to get done between now and the season opener in less than a month at home against Western Michigan. “We kind of ground ourselves every day when we meet because we have so many things that we know we have to be better at,” Hoke said. “There’s a ton of things we need to do. “We talk about Michigan every night and being Michigan and those expectations that we all have. As far as us believing anything, we have to prove it ev-

ery day.” Center David Molk agreed. “Time is running out to get work done,” Molk said. The Wolverines are going from a spread offense and threeman fronts on defense to a prostyle offense and four-man fronts, leading to body transformations. Defensive lineman Will Campbell and offensive tackle Taylor Lewan pleased Hoke by following orders on their own during the offseason. “Will Campbell, I think he left at spring 342 or something like that and came in at 316,” Hoke said. “Taylor Lewan gained some weight he needed to gain. A lot of guys needed to get bigger and more physical.” Michigan’s biggest problems are in the kicking game and on defense. A pair of kickers combined to miss 10 of 14 field goals last year and the returning punter, Will Hagerup, will miss the first four games for violating unspecified rules. Hoke said freshman Matt Wile may be asked to kick and punt, getting experience kicking in Michigan Stadium this month along with at the team’s practice facility. “We need them to kick up in the stadium a bunch, that’s a little different animal,” Hoke said.










Deaths increase scrutiny of swimming Times Leader wire services

Amy Martich hit the water at about 7 a.m. Sunday with about 10 to 15 other swimmers ready to take on the Hudson River in the first leg of a popular New York triathlon. Other contestants dived in right behind them — one group of after another, each spaced out at 10 to 15 second intervals to avoid the churn of hundreds of swimmers shoving off at the same time, officials said. Martich, 40, of Elmhurst, Ill., was about halfway through the nearly one-mile long course when she experienced some sort of “massive medical event,” said Bill Burke, race director for the Nautica New York City Triathlon.

“The reports from swimmers near her was that they were stroking along, and she was stroking along, then a moment later she wasn’t,” Burke said. Martich died early Monday at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, where she was taken with what police described as heart attack symptoms. A 64-year-old New Jersey man also died, Burke said. The deaths occurred as triathlons have exploded in popularity across the country and as medical reports have zeroed in on the potential danger of the swimming part of the competitions, which also include running and biking segments. USA Triathlon, the Colorado Springs, Colo., organization that

sanctions more than 3,000 of the events in this country, reports that participation in the sport is at an all-time high. Membership in the organization totaled more than 135,000, the organization stated. Annual membership ranged from 15,000 to 21,000 from 1993-2000, according to the organization’s web site. The event Sunday was the 11th New York Triathlon. The first year, 683 people signed up. By 2010, organizers had to create a lottery for entry due to overwhelming demand, they said in a statement. This year, entrants came from 43 states and 26 countries. Registration for the race filled up in six minutes, they said. A Minneapolis Heart Institute

Foundation study of nearly 960,000 triathlon participants in 2006-2008 found a death rate of 1.5 athletes per 100,000 participants. Researchers determined that about 95 percent of those fatalities occurred in the swimming segment. The researchers also found that deaths were more common in events with greater numbers of participants. The study looked at 14 triathlon deaths and found that 13 victims were in the water when they either died or started getting into trouble. Autopsies determined that seven had cardiovascular abnormalities, according to the study. Preliminary results of the

study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association last year recommended establishing minimum standards for competing in triathlons, including swimming proficiency. There was no indication that Martich was hit or injured while in the water, Burke said. “There wasn’t a lot of jostling,” he said. Burke said weather conditions on Sunday were optimal, with relatively mild temperatures and good cloud cover for much of the day. A staff kayaker watching for medical emergencies jumped out and put Martich on a jet ski, then brought her to the water’s edge,

where she was given advanced life support before being taken to the hospital in critical condition, Burke said. Police said 26 others were removed from the water needing assistance for minor injuries or pains throughout the swim. Burke said there were more than 3,000 participants this year. Athletes in the yearly race also bike 25 miles along Manhattan’s West Side highway and finish with a 6-mile run through Central Park. The participants attended a mandatory briefing before the race that includes information about training and staying hydrated.



Eagles’ Jackson reports to camp

Hot-Lanta greets PGA golfers, fans

The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM — DeSean Jackson wants a piece of that money the Philadelphia Eagles have been throwing around. Just don’t expect him to turn into T.O. The two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver ended his 11-day holdout and reported to training camp on Monday. He didn’t practice in the morning, but was on the field for the afternoon walkthrough at Lehigh University. “The relationship I have with the team and the front office, I think everything will work out,” Jackson said. “I’m just going to keep everything positive. I don’t want to turn it into anything negative. I love Philadelphia. I love the fans here. Coming back out here onto the field, the fans showed me a lot of love and stuff. I just want to keep that positive thing going.” Jackson is slated to earn $565,000 this season, the final one of his four-year rookie deal. He caught 47 passes for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns last year, and his 22.5 yard-per-catch average was best in the NFL. He also averaged 11.6 yards on 20 punt returns, including a 65yarder for a TD that beat the New York Giants on the last play of a game in the Meadowlands on Dec. 19. “My first three years, the things I accomplished, it’s been off the charts but there’s still always room for improvement,” Jackson said. “That’s one thing I realized. Being an Eagle this year is something I look forward to. I’ve always wanted to be an Eagle. Because I held out a couple of days or whatever it was, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be an Eagle. Like I said, I just had to handle what I had to handle. I’m here, I’m ready to move forward, I’m ready to play football, I’m ready to help win games.” Jackson has a different approach than the previous diva receiver that wanted a new contract from the Eagles. Terrell Owens ended up being kicked off the team midway through the 2005 season after a series of infractions, including criticizing management and feuding with quarterback Donovan McNabb. Just several months after helping the Eagles reach the Super Bowl, Owens was such a nuisance that he was sent home from camp, leading to that infamous news conference where he did sit-ups on the front lawn of his house in Moorestown, N.J. Jackson has the same agent — Drew Rosenhaus. The similarity ends there. “I feel good to be back and I’m happy to be back out here with my teammates,” he said. “I have to be a professional about it. I can’t cry. I can’t moan about it. Being a man about the situation more than anything. I’ve been through a lot in my life. A lot of people said a lot of things, I was always too small, a lot of negative things. But I was still able to go out there and

prove a lot of things on the field. I think my game speaks enough for everything and the only thing I can really control is playing between the white lines. I can’t really control contract or anything else. And realizing that, I just want to go out there and let my play talk for itself. I really don’t have to do any of the talking.” Jackson’s teammates were thrilled to have him back. “It’s great to have DeSean back,” quarterback Michael Vick said. “More so, DeSean is excited to be back which is good, he’s ready; ready to come back and help this football team win games. I’ll tell you what, it’ll be a breakout season for him. He’s going to be a phenomenal player in this league as he’s always been.” The Eagles were one of the most aggressive teams in the NFL once the lockout ended. They signed 12 free agents in the first six days, including Pro Bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin, quarterback Vince Young, running back Ronnie Brown and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins. If Jackson hadn’t reported by Tuesday, he could’ve lost a year of service time toward free agency.

being 6-5, it didn’t work out too well.” Burress made his debut for the Jets in 11-on-11 team drills Sunday after being limited to being mostly a spectator since he signed a week ago. “To be honest,” he said, still wearing his pads and white Jets jersey, “it feels like I’ve never left.” He rolled his left ankle running routes with Santonio Holmes last Wednesday, and had only been doing light work during the morning walkthroughs. For the afternoon practice, Burress was eager to get back out there after a few years away that included a 20month stint in prison on a gun charge. “The plan was just for me to go through individuals and I stole a couple of team plays,” he said, smiling. “I tried to sneak in there and Rex basically told me, ‘Hey, this is a good start and we don’t want any setbacks.’ So if they wouldn’t have taken me out, I would have kept on going. It’s my first time out there in a couple of years and it just felt good to kind of get back in a groove. But Rex shut me down.” Burress was in uniform for Friday’s afternoon practice, as he was Thursday, but mostly as a sideline spectator. After a day off Saturday, Burress was able to do a little more on the field. “I really want to go slow because he’s feeling great, but if you have him go through this and there’s a setback,” Ryan said, “then it may cost you two weeks.” Burress said he was on the field for team drills for “one or two plays” and hopes that number increases during the next few practices. “I didn’t think Rex was playing attention,” he said. “He kind of surprised me with how sharp he was. I just wanted to get out there. I think they all understand, my teammates, (I’m) in there getting rehab two, three, four times a day, working hard to get back on the football field because it’s something I miss, I love and I just want to get back out there. They kind of have the reins a little bit, but that’s cool also.” Burress knew he’d give it a chance when he woke up Sunday morning and the ankle felt pretty good after an extra acupuncture session on Saturday. He’s hoping to be ready in time to play in the preseason opener at Houston next Monday night.

JOHNS CREEK, Ga.— For those outside the ropes, there are fans atop the bleachers and misting stations to cool down. For the players, there are buckets filled with cold, bottled water at every hole. Better take advantage of it. They don’t call it Hot-Lanta for nothing. The PGA Championship is back in the Deep South, right in the middle of a summer that’s more blistering than usual — even for these parts. On Monday, as most of the players showed up at the Atlanta Athletic Club to begin practicing, the conditions were about par for the course this year: the temperature climbed into the mid-90s, and the humidity made it feel like the 100s. The forecast calls for more of the same the rest of the week. “It wasn’t too bad,” said Wisconsin native Steve Stricker, trying to sound optimistic. “This is what you expect coming here.” Rich Beem, the 2002 PGA champion, wasn’t concerned. “If I’m worried about the heat, then I must not be in very good shape,” he said after playing 18 holes on the Highlands Course. “They give you water on every single tee box. If you’re not smart enough to drink it, then you ought to collapse.” Over the last two decades, the PGA has generally scheduled its August championship for courses that might be a bit milder in the middle of summer, places like Whistling Straits (Wisconsin) and Hazeltine (Minnesota). But the Atlanta Athletic Club, located in the sprawling suburbs north of its namesake city, has been an exception to the rule. It will become only the fifth club to host the PGA for a third time, serving previously in 1981 and 2001 (in addition to hosting the U.S. Open in 1976). The club’s most famous member is Bobby Jones, whose 1930 Grand Slam is memorialized with a series of plaques behind the 18th green. But he played when it was located just east of downtown Atlanta at what is now East Lake Golf Club, home to the season-ending Tour Championship. Atlanta Athletic Club moved to its current spot along the Chattahoochee River in the 1960s. No matter the location, it’s going to be a scorcher. The organizers have set up cooling tents around the course, allowing fans to dip under cover for a refreshing mist. Some bleachers have metal fans attached to the top railing, at least providing a bit of a breeze. The players have to make their own arrangements to deal with the heat. Most will be carrying extra gloves and plenty of towels. Club pro Marty Jertson is

used to playing in these temperatures, being from Arizona. But the humidity presents additional challenges. “It’s totally different,” he said. “You’ve got to switch gloves all the time here. It’s a little wet. But I was preparing for the worst. It’s not too bad.” Stricker said the key is drinking plenty of water and also munching on a few snacks while out on the course. “You’ve got to stay hydrated,” he said. “It’s so hot, you can probably drink one of those little eight-ounce water bottles every hole.” Scotland’s Martin Laird decided to play only nine practice holes each day before the tournament begins on Thursday. “It’s already a long week with the heat,” he said. “The golf course is long as it is (7,467 yards), and there’s some long walk-backs on a couple of the tees. You have to use a considerable amount of energy, and I don’t want to be worn out when I get to the first tee.” The world’s best players were at Firestone last weekend, competing in a World Golf Championship event. Adam Scott pulled away for a four-stroke win, but the guy carrying his bag provided perhaps the most compelling storyline heading into Atlanta. Steve Williams was recently fired by Tiger Woods, ending a long partnership that produced 13 major championships. Clearly, it didn’t end well. Reveling in Scott’s win, Williams let loose with the animosity he felt toward his former boss and good friend, claiming he was fired over the phone — not in person, as Woods said — after being “incredibly loyal to the guy.” The heat will really be on if those two wind up in the same group on the weekend at the PGA (they’re in different threesomes for the first two rounds). Woods wasn’t much of a factor at Firestone, finishing 18 shots behind Scott in a tie for 37th. Still, he was encouraged about completing a tournament for the first time since the Masters in April. He missed three months with a rather mysterious leg injury, a layoff that knocked him out of the U.S. Open and the British Open. Scott is staying out of the Woods-Williams tiff. Besides, the Aussie probably needs to focus on being properly dressed for the PGA Championship, after getting stuck wearing allblack attire for the final round at Firestone on a rather balmy Ohio day. “It was poor planning out of the suitcase,” Scott said. No need to bring any black clothes to the PGA Championship. “This is nothing compared to what we’re going to get in Atlanta,” the world’s No. 1-ranked player, Luke Donald, said after a strong closing round left him tied for second behind Scott. “Hopefully I’ll be wearing white every day. Yeah, it’s going to be hot and sticky, and get ready to sweat.”














NCAA to evaluate penalties for rules violators Mark Emmert is tired of tweaking the NCAA rulebook. He wants an overhaul. More than 60 university presidents and administrators are scheduled to meet with Emmert on Tuesday and Wednesday in Indianapolis, a debate that could include everything from deregulation to scholarship funding to keeping integrity in college sports. “He thinks it’s time to look at what we’re doing at a mega-level, and if where we are is where we want to be and should be,” said former NCAA infractions committee chairwoman Josephine Potuto, the faculty rep at Nebraska since 1997. “He wants to know where Division I is and where it’s headed.” Critics contend it’s about time because under the current format, the NCAA cannot keep up with all the scandals tainting college sports. Connecticut was penalized in February for recruiting violations in its men’s basketball program, but the punishment did not derail the Huskies run to a third national title. In December, Auburn’s football program came under scrutiny after Cam Newton’s father was found to be involved in a pay-forplay recruiting scheme. The NCAA did not punish Newton, ruling he was unaware of his father’s efforts. Newton went on to win the Heisman Trophy and led Auburn to the national title. That’s just the start. In June, Southern California was stripped of its 2004 national championship by the Bowl Championship Series for NCAA infractions that also forced Reggie Bush to give back his Heisman Trophy. Tennessee officials are still awaiting an NCAA decision on a case accusing former football coach Lane Kiffin and men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl of recruiting violations. The school is also accused of failing to create an atmosphere of compliance. Ohio State officials are scheduled to appear in front of the infractions committee Friday. The case involves football players who allegedly received cash and tattoos for autographs, championship rings and equipment. Former coach Jim Tressel also is accused of failing to notify school officials after learning of the possible infractions. Tressel resigned in May, but the players were allowed to play in last season’s bowl game and will be suspended this fall. Ohio State President Gordon Gee is also expected to attend the presidential retreat. Two weeks ago, North Carolina fired football coach Butch Davis amid an NCAA investigation into allegations of improper benefits provided to players and academic misconduct, following several suspensions of players who had contact with agents. Even those outside the purview of the NCAA have gotten caught up in scandal. The BCS fined the Fiesta Bowl $1 million and considered drop-

is as far as other things we might or should be doing.” Potuto also favors other new concepts such as providing scholarship athletes with the full cost of attendance, money above and beyond just what’s paid to the university. Officials from the Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC have had similar discussions at their conference meetings, and it’s almost certain to be a key part of this week’s discussion. “We’re for it,” Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said in June. “It’s a positive thing and I think doing something for student-athletes is a positive thing. The reality of being able to do it,

it’s hard.” No formal proposals are expected to go into the NCAA’s legislative process after the two-day presidential retreat. Instead, the discussion over key issues such as policing unsavory agents, stronger enforcement tools and punishments for rules violators, academic reform, player safety and financial sustainability will return to campuses. Emmert and others believe the answers could change college athletics for years to come. “The intent isn’t to simply have the discussion and then everybody goes home and goes back to doing things the way they have

ping the game from its series after an internal investigation uncovered apparently illegal campaign contributions by staff and lavish spending by former bowl CEO and president John Junker on parties and a night at a strip club. So when Emmert sent out invitations to this week’s meeting, he made it clear that this wasn’t going to be just a typical round table discussion. “A few new tweaks of the rules won’t get the job done,” he said in a statement. Apparently, he’s not alone. Last week, the NCAA’s leadership council agreed to come up with a men’s basketball proposal that would deregulate electronic communications, including text messages. It would also allow unlimited communication beginning Aug.1with recruits entering their junior years. A formal proposal could be finalized by October. Potuto thinks this debate is long overdue. “Trying to regulate is really clogging up the process,” she said. “Believe me, if you list something and it’s a no-no, it’s incumbent on the association to go after people who break those rules, whether they’re agents paying players or you’re making too many phone calls. The question is whether we should have some of these rules in place. i think it’s worth a full discussion as to what it is we’re trying to accomplish, how well we’re accomplishing it and what the trade-off

CMYK The Fed meets

Beazer Homes earnings

The Federal Reserve’s regular meeting on the economy and interest rates will be more anxiously awaited than usual, although economists don’t expect anything dramatic to come out of it. If the Fed describes the economy as weaker, that won’t be a surprise. Still, if its language is stronger than investors expect, that could set off more selling in the stock market.

Expectations are low for Beazer Homes’ second-quarter results. The spring home selling season was a disappointment for the homebuilding industry. When Beazer reported its first-quarter earnings, it said orders had fallen in March, and that it didn’t see signs that there would be a sustained pickup in the following months. And with would-be buyers getting more scared about the economy, Beazer is unlikely to have an optimistic outlook.

How did Mickey do?


Walt Disney’s earnings are expected to rise in its fiscal third quarter from a year earlier because advertising revenue is up at networks like ABC and ESPN. But the closing of its Tokyo theme parks for part of the quarter because of the March earthquake and tsunami probably limited the gain in earnings. The disappointing U.S. ticket sales for movies like “Cars 2” was also expected to hurt Disney’s profit.

Gold price soars to record The price of gold streaked past $1,700 an ounce for the first time Monday. Anxious investors sought safety in the metal as stocks tumbled around the world after the U.S. lost its AAA credit rating. Gold soared $61.40, or 3.7 percent, to settle at $1,713.20 on Monday. It reached a record high of $1,718.20 per ounce in morning trading. Still, adjusted for inflation, an ounce of gold remains below its 1980 peak of $850, which translates into about $2,400 in today’s dollars.

NEW YORK — Although the downgrade in the nation’s AAA debt rating by Standard & Poor’s was historic, it wasn’t entirely unexpected. The three main credit agencies, S&P, Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings, had warned during the fight over the debt ceiling that if Congress did not cut spending far enough, the country faced a downgrade. Just as a lower consumer credit score implies that a borrower is less reliable, a lower credit rating for government bonds implies there is more risk involved in lending money to the government. Prices for U.S. government debt rose in trading on Monday, a sign of increased demand despite the downgrade.

But it is unclear what will happen in the long term, because of the unprecedented nature of the lower rating and the decisions by Moody’s and Fitch to keep their highest ratings for now. If investors get skittish and Treasury prices reverse course, that could send the interest rate on Treasury bonds up. Essentially, the rate, or yield, would climb in order to make the bonds more attractive to investors. That could lead to higher borrowing rates for consumers, because the rates on mortgages and other loans are often pegged to the yield on Treasury bonds. Not every type of consumer borrowing has a direct tie to the government’s credit rating, but there are potential ripple effects for individuals. Early Monday, S&P downgraded the

credit ratings of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which are both backed by the U.S. government. That could mean higher mortgage rates for new borrowers. Freddie and Fannie together own or guarantee about half of all mortgages in the U.S. Rates are not likely to climb in the near future. But fixed-rate mortgages are typically directly tied to the yield on 10-year Treasury bonds. Higher mortgage rates would follow any increase in the Treasury yield. Variable-rate mortgages and home equity loans could become more expensive as well. Credit cards rate changes as a result of the downgrade won’t be dramatic. And current account balances will be protected from rate hikes under the credit card reforms passed in 2009.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., whose top three shareholdings declined by about $1.6 billion last week and even more on Monday, disclosed its biggest quarterly purchase of equities in almost three years. Berkshire bought $3.62 billion of stock in the three months ended June 30, the most since it spent $3.94 billion in the third quarter of 2008, the Omaha, Neb.-based company said in a filing. Equity purchases exceeded acquisitions of fixed-maturity securities for the first time since 2009. But the firm’s equity portfolio, which rose to $67.6 billion as of June 30, suffered last week as markets plummeted.

U.S. airlines have started rolling back last month’s fare increases, so passengers are likely to pay the same prices even though federal ticket taxes are being collected again. Southwest Airlines Co., its AirTran Airways subsidiary and Delta Air Lines Inc. said they cut fares back to where they were before July 23, when the taxes expired. Industry observers said they expected other airlines to do the same, but by midday Monday United, Continental and US Airways said they were still charging the higher prices. Most U.S. airlines raised fares last month after a standoff between Republicans and Democrats in Congress on funding for the Federal Aviation Administration caused federal excise taxes on tickets to expire.By raising fares to offset the expired taxes, airlines were able to pocket an estimated $400 million in just two weeks.

New suit against BofA More trouble piled up for Bank of America Corp. on Monday, as American International Group Inc. sued it for more than $10 billion, saying the bank cheated it by selling residential mortgage-backed securities that were overvalued. The suit comes on top of similar suits, which together put the bank in a precarious position, analysts say. The bank’s stock dove 20 percent, or $1.66, to $6.51 Monday. AIG said it looked at more than 260,000 of the underlying mortgages, and found that the bank’s “stated metrics” for 40 percent of the securities were false.

Downgrade on mood By MICHELLE CONLIN AP Business Writer

To succeed as a trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange you have to have a steely disposition. Traders know the rhythms of the market. And they don’t usually flinch, not even at the top of a rollercoaster. But as the market opened Monday, dropping nearly 250 points almost immediately, some traders couldn’t help but betray their nerves. Art Cashin, floor director at UBS Securities, has worked on the floor of the Exchange for 50 years. He likened the situation Monday to watching a patient recovering from chest pain as he walks down the street. “You wait as they catch their breath, and see if they can walk on,” Cashin said. “But the symptoms are concerning.” For the first time in history, credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s “put a downgrade on America,” as many trad-

ers put it, lowering its credit rating from the highest, AAA, to AA+. The country had held the AAA rating since 1917. Global markets are more interlinked then they ever have been before. As a whole, companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index now reap half their profits overseas. But in Europe, a debt crisis threatens to spill over into the continent’s third and fourth largest countries, Italy and Spain.

Downgrade may mean rate hikes By EILEEN AJ CONNELLY AP Personal Finance writer



WALL STREET S&P 1,119.46 —79.92




DOW 10,809.85 —634.76


Still-developing countries like Brazil and China are no longer driving growth since the financial crisis in 2008. Add to that slowing economic growth in the U.S. and unemployment that is over 9 percent. As if that weren’t enough to make traders on the floor at the stock exchange nervous, at a time when the markets need the U.S. to be a decisive global leader, lawmakers instead appear dysfunctional, traders said.

GE adds tech jobs in the U.S. By RACHEL LAYNE and JEFF GREEN Bloomberg News

VAN BUREN TWP., Mich. — Once vilified for leadership in outsourcing jobs, General Electric is pulling more informationtechnology positions back inhouse. Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Immelt has said GE will add more than15,000 jobs in the three years through December. About 1,100 will be just outside Detroit in a center for information technology, a field emblematic of outsourcing. So far, GE has hired about 660 people in Michigan, a state that led the nation in jobless rates, making it a symbol of U.S. industrial decline. “About 50 percent of the IT work was being done by non-GE employees,” Charlene Begley, chief information technology officer, said in an interview at the center in Van Buren Township. “That strategy may have had its time, but there was a lot of downside. We lost a lot of the technical capabilities that we have to own.” Bringing more informationtechnology work back to GE lets the company move quickly to develop programs that respond to technology demands cropping up faster than ever. “With iPads and whatever mobile devices people want to use, the need for better user experiences is essential to competitiveness,” Begley said. “So we’ve got a team that’s really good at writing user applications that are sexy, impressive and quick.” Companies such as GE and General Motors that once led in outsourcing are in the forefront of a move in the opposite direction: adding workers back to their own businesses in mature markets like Britain and the United States, said John Keppel, president for outsourcing consulting firm TPI International. In the first half of 2011, the total global value of information-technology outsourcing contracts fell 20 percent, dragged down by a 51 percent second-quarter dip in the Americas, according to TPI data released July 20. Immelt has worked to locate a variety of GE production sites closer to their markets around the world. The company has increased its information technology workers 30 percent to 9,600 worldwide in the past decade and plans to expand to 11,000. Anecdotal evidence so far shows a single center employee can handle work for which GE would have needed three outside contractors, said Begley.

The Dow’s slide

Stocks have plunged since July 21 and sent the Dow Jones industrial average down 15 percent. On Monday, the Dow fell 634 points. The biggest casualties among the 30 Dow stocks: manufacturers who helped lead the economy out of the recession. The Institute for Supply Management said Aug. 1 that manufacturing barely grew in July. That and weak economic growth in the first half have investors fearing another recession. The downgrade of the U.S. credit rating and Europe’s debt problems have made the selling more intense.

So far this year I’ve measured more rain than I recorded in all of last year. In fact, we’ve already had 90% of the average rainfall for an entire year which is 37.56.” Our rainfall so far this summer is running 3.5” above normal and many lawns, including mine, are unusually green for August. Indeed, along with all the rain, we’ve had plenty of heat making this a banner summer for crabgrass. More rain will move in this afternoon and then starting tomorrow, much drier air will begin flowing down from Canada and by Thursday, we will be under a blanket of very cool and refreshing air...for a change. - Tom Clark

Link between Agent Orange, diabetes weak


Gordon Lyon, 84, left, threads a sewing machine needle for his wife, Joan Lyon, 82, in their Waterford, Mich., home. Joan Lyon affectionately teases that her husband of 58 years is her ‘visual aide.’ Joan Lyon was diagnosed five years ago with macular degeneration. Then about three years ago, for about two years, she developed Charles Bonnet Syndrome.

BEYOND SIGHT Seniors scared to admit they’re hallucinating

and has a book with a chapter devoted to it. “It rarely needs treatment; it mostly needs reassurance,� said Dr. Jonathon Trobe, a University of Michigan ophthalmologist. Doctors say they believe the condition more likely afflicts people who are socially isolated. Deprived of “sensory input� from things seen, “the brain goes in any direction it wants to go,� Trobe theorized. First described in 1769, the syndrome has remained poorly understood, in part because many patients don’t want to admit they’re seeing things. “People don’t report it, even to their nearest and dearest,� Trobe said. Mogk said patients worry they’ll be considered crazy and treated with antipsychotic medicines or be admitted to a nursing home.


Joan Lyon didn’t know why she had almost daily visions of things that weren’t really there. “I’d tell my husband, ‘There are those flowers again,’� said Lyon, 82, of Waterford, Mich., who lives with her husband of almost 59 years. Almost every day for two years, she saw trees covered in tiny, pink flowers, either on the house across the canal from her home or on the white living room wall. Her doctor suggested psychiatric medicines, which she said “quite offended� her. Then came a visit to Dr. Lylas Mogk, a specialist in severe vision loss with the Henry Ford Health System. Within the hour, Lyon was diagnosed with Charles Bonnet Syndrome, an eye problem that causes visual hallucinations. As America’s population gets older,

more ophthalmologists realize that the syndrome exists. An estimated 25 million American have such bad vision that they see poorly even with glasses. About 20 percent to 40 percent of them develop hallucinations associated with the syndrome, Mogk and others said. It mostly occurs in people who already have severe vision loss caused by macular degeneration, glaucoma, stroke or diabetes, said Mogk, who has lectured nationwide on the condition See SIGHT, Page 2C

Labs may miss low thyroid problem MARNI JAMESON The Orlando Sentinel

Millions of Americans — mostly women — could find the key to more energy, easier weight control, sharper thinking, less depression, less infertility, lower blood pressure and lower incidence of heart disease. It all depends on who wins a 10year-old medical debate. The holdup is the number on a lab test — specifically, the reference range for thyroid-stimulating hormone. Many physicians who specialize in endocrine disorders, including thyroid disease, think lab limits for thyroid-stimulating hormone are too broad, leav-

ing many patients who suffer from low-thyroid disease undiagnosed and untreated. Marilyn Arnst of Orlando, Fla., fell in that gap. “I was cold all the time, even in the hot Orlando summer,� said Arnst of the symptoms she felt seven years ago, when she was 49. “I would wake up feeling drowsy, and need to lie down in a couple hours. I was confused and foggy and kept finding more hair in my hairbrush.� The wife and mother asked her primary-care doctor to check her for low-thyroid disease. He ran the usual blood tests and told her she was fine. Her thyroid-stimulating hor-

mone was 3.44. Most medical laboratories put the normal range for that hormone between 0.4 and 4.5 (milliunits per liter) or even as high as 5.5. “Because both of my kids had just gone off to college and my husband traveled a lot, the doctor thought this was just a phase and suggested I try volunteering,� Arnst recalled. Then a nurse practitioner friend told her to go back to the doctor and insist on more testing. A blood test for thyroid antibodies came back positive, confirming she had low-thyroid disease, or hypothyroidism.

Q: What’s the connection between Agent Orange and diabetes? — F.O., Canton, Ga. A: Agent Orange was a code name for one of the poisons used to kill the lush plant vegetation in the rural areas of Southeast Asia that provided enemy cover and food supply. During the Vietnam War, the U.S. military sprayed 12 million gallons of chemical herbicides and defoliants in Southeast Asia between 1962 and 1971. The chemical mixture was found to be contaminated with an extremely toxic form of dioxin. All soldiers stationed in that region were presumed to have had exposure to Agent Orange, even though blood testing has shown that only a handful had any significant exposure. The association between Agent Orange and adult-onset diabetes is weak: An Air Force study on veterans of Operation Ranch Hand, the soldiers who sprayed 90 percent of all the Agent Orange used in Vietnam, showed that Ranch Hand soldiers had no more adult-onset diabetes than vets who did not spread Agent Orange or any other herbicides. The so-called link is that the 238 Ranch Hand soldiers with the highest dioxin levels (more than 10 parts per trillion) were 47 percent more likely to have diabetes than the 232 Ranch Hand soldiers with the lowest dioxin levels. Dioxin is stored in body fat and works its way out of the bloodstream so slowly that it can be measured many years later. The tricky thing here is that higher dioxin levels are associated with higher obesity levels -- and that is the main cause of adult-onset diabetes. This makes the link between adult-onset diabetes and dioxin exposure so difficult to ascertain. Nonetheless, the U.S. government decided to pay for a botched military exercise rather than dispute medical claims. Q: Can you explain why I always seem to get lot of earwax buildup in my right ear, but not my left? — G.R., Philadelphia A: The best explanation I can offer for a greater wax buildup is that you favor sleeping with the right side of your head against the pillow. Air keeps the left ear dry and gives wax a chance to dry up and disappear; moisture and heat created with your ear against the pillow favor a wax buildup in your right ear canal. Earwax (cerumen) does have value: It repels water and traps dust and other small particles so they don’t get farther into the ear. Also, earwax contains substances that help kill any bacteria that happen to find their way into the ear canal. The skin on the outer part of the ear canal has special glands that produce earwax.

Lyon’s visions lasted two years and ended about two years ago. Her vision is waning with macular degeneration, but she has adapted her home with visual clues such as orange dots over the “low” button on her stove. The rest of life’s challenges, including her old visions, she laughs off. “I appreciate the fact that I can see this much,” she said.

“My doctor felt terrible,” she said, although in fact he only did what most doctors do. Unless they specialize in endocrine disease, most physicians go by the labs. He started Arnst on thyroid medication. Shortly afterward, she recalls, “I woke up and felt like myself again: clear, awake and alive.” A butterfly-shaped gland that sits at the base of the throat, the thyroid governs metabolism. When it doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone, people feel sluggish, have trouble concentrating, gain weight and feel cold. Left untreated, thyroid disease can

lead to more-serious health problems, including elevated cholesterol, heart disease, osteoporosis, infertility and depression. Conversely, an overactive thyroid causes people to feel anxious, jittery and hot, and can cause rapid heartbeat and insomnia. Overseeing all this is the brain’s pituitary gland. When it senses that the thyroid isn’t producing enough thyroid hormone, it sends out thyroid-stimulating hormone, also called thyrotropin, to tell the thyroid gland to step up production. Low thyroid is 20 times more common, and among those it affects, 80 percent are women. Most hypothyroidism occurs when the body makes antibodies that attack the thyroid gland.

Many endocrinologists think the labs’ upper ranges of 4.2 to 5.5 are too high and should be 3.

Son left to raise himself wants distance from his abusive parents Dear Abby: I’m an only child by default. My parents have been married 30 years and had two children. When I was 9 and my sister was 6, we were in a car accident with my mother that resulted in my sister’s death. Her death changed my life in ways I can never explain. My father began abusing drugs and beating me. My mother started stealing and was always unemployed. She became severely depressed and also abused prescription drugs. I was left to raise myself, and now, as an adult, I don’t want a relationship with either of them. How can I get my mother to accept

DEAR ABBY ADVICE that despite her wishes, I do not want to live my life watching her waste hers? It leaves me feeling depressed, angry and hopeless. I have been diagnosed as bipolar. Almost all my life I have known only death, drugs, abuse and pain. I just want peace from these people. Please help. — Frustrated Son in Georgia Dear Frustrated Son: You have my deepest sympathy for the tragedy that destroyed your family. Had your parents received the professional help they needed at the time of the


accident, much of it might have been prevented. Tell your parents that unless they seek help NOW for their problems, they will have lost not one, but two, children. However, if they choose to continue as they have been — which is likely — then you must go on with your life. The answer to a toxic situation such as what you have experienced is to divorce yourself. Because you can’t fix them, you must save yourself. You have been damaged enough. Dear Abby: My daughter, “Kate,” is 27 and has a 3-year-old son. She and the father are not married. He is self-centered, controlling and keeps her stranded. She has no car and no money. They currently


live with his family — a far from ideal situation. I am struggling because I’m unable to help her financially, and she feels lost and alone. My husband (her stepfather) won’t allow them to live with us, which I understand. We’re scrimping to get by. I have located several online sites for single moms regarding assistance, but I feel it is up to Kate to pursue them. What else can I offer her regarding steering her in the right direction? If she could contact others in her situation, perhaps they might point her in directions I cannot. Your advice would be welcomed. — Grandma in Prescott, Ariz. Dear Grandma: Because of your financial situation there is a limit

to what you can do. Give your daughter the websites and explain that she may find support and suggestions there from other single mothers — the rest is up to her. But please, realize that until your daughter is willing to take charge of her life, nothing will change. Continue to be caring and supportive, and let your daughter know you love her.

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your big idea is becoming a full-blown ambition. Stay theoretical. It’s not time to act yet. Seek patient, understanding and flexible teammates to help you work out the details. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Needing everything to be smooth is a detriment to success. The better you can tolerate small, bothersome details, the further you will go in business and pleasure. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may find that you are easily distracted by things that don’t really matter. Take it as a sign to change tracks. Go for a walk, call a friend, or do something else on that lengthy to-do list of yours. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your will is not the same as what the others want from you, though a certain loved one is so slick that you may not notice this right away. Do not make any decision when you are feeling overloaded or pressured. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Though you try not to expect too much from loved ones, you also know that patterns are likely to repeat. The one who has impressed you before will soon impress you again. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are willing to take a risk when it comes to love, but not when it comes to commerce. Keep your money where it is until you completely and thoroughly understand and trust the investment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Love erases discomfort. This afternoon, knowing that you are accepted and adored will come

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

as a psychic relief. And tonight, you will in turn give similar emotional support to someone else. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Children want to be grownups, and grownups want to return to a life of few responsibilities and limited liability. Make the novel choice — enjoy your age. You could start a trend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll plan your workout well, though unpredictable events will challenge that plan. Your strength is your astounding adaptability. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because someone is a supporter of yours doesn’t mean that an exchange will be easy. Dealing with good friends could cause you much more stress than it’s worth now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is little to be gained from fame. Pursue usefulness instead. That is what will make you happy and wealthy. Capricorn and Virgo people will be helpful business partners. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Get on top of the wave, and you’ll glide like the freest of beings. Get underneath it, and you’ll be pummeled and dragged down. So make a strong effort to leap up and take the ride that’s offered. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 9). You have serious projects to complete this year, so you plan well, guard your time and keep everything on course. October brings a victory. There will be many amusements. You’ll close a deal in May. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 25, 2, 24 and 35.
