Eager bidders flock to back-tax property sale

Welcome mat for buyers By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Hazleton pediatrician Bassam Bittar came to Wednesday’s Luzerne County back-tax sale with his eye on a former law office on busy Route 315 in Plains Township. The building on 0.82 acres is assessed at $446,400 for taxation purposes, and Bittar said he made a promise to himself that he would stop bidding at $100,000. A heated bidding war pushed the price up to $77,000 before Bittar prevailed. The audience congratulated Bittar with applause because the purchase was among the highest in Wednesday’s sale, in which bids typically started at $800 to $900. “I’m pleased. That was my main target,” he said, pondering whether he will try to resell the property or move his own office into part of the building and rent

Bob Dylan: Different but the same

Man charged in 2008 bar fight waives hearing

Musical legend delivers with favorites. Leon Russell proves he’s still got it.

By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A Larksville man charged with his role in assaulting two men at a Nanticoke bar in October 2008 waived his right to an arraignment Wednesday. Benjamin Stephens IV, 31, of Wilson Street, waived his right to the arraignment originally scheduled to be held Friday through his attorney, Nanda Palissery. Stephens faces numerous charges, including aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal conspiracy and reckless endangerment. According to court papers, on Oct. 6, 2008, Joseph Blazick told police he was at the Prospect Street Café in Nanticoke when an unknown man, later identified as Stephens, told Blazick that if he looked at him again, he would kill him, according to arrest papers. Police said Stephens then threw a beer mug and ashtray at Blazick, and the bar’s owner, Paul Halliday, told Stephens and his group of friends to leave. Police allege Stephens struck Halliday, and Halliday was able to eventually get the group out of the bar. A woman came into the bar and told Halliday that Blazick was hurt outside. Halliday told police that he went outside and saw Blazick on the ground. Halliday said he walked over to a van where Stephens and another man, Robert Lewis, were. Halliday said Lewis got out of the van and assaulted him. Stephens knocked another man to the ground, and assaulted Halliday, police said. Police said that once Stephens and Lewis left, several witnesses corroborated the alleged assaults. Police learned that Blazick was listed in “serious condition” at a local hospital, and that he suffered numerous fractures in his face, requiring surgery and reconstructive surgery, according to court papers. Lewis, 33, of Wilkes-Barre, was also charged in the assaults, but has not yet been located by police.

SCRANTON -- For more than 20 years, Bob Dylan’s concerts have been a lot like Forrest Gump’s fabled box of chocolates: You never what you’re gonna get. Since his so-called “Never Ending Tour” began in June 1988, every show features a different setlist, altered arrangements and a varied vocal approach. Sometimes his classic songs are so radically rearranged, it takes even the most diehard Dylan fan two verses and a chorus to identify them. While that may have kept some people away from his performance at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain on Wednesday evening (it was definitely the venue’s smallest crowd of the season), it’s also

what makes his shows so much fun. Dylan, the 1982 Songwriters Hall of Fame and 1988 Rock and Dylan Roll Hall of Fame inductee and who turned 70 in May, played keyboards for most of the night Wednesday, kicking off his set with a raucous version of his 1965 hit “Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35.” He followed it up with an equally fine rendition of “It Ain’t Me Babe,” and kept playing well-known songs from his storied repertoire including “Things Have Changed” and a stunning “Tangled Up In Blue” in the early part of his show. Dylan was backed by an impressive, highly adaptive fivepiece band consisting of Charlie Sexton (guitar), Stu Kimball (guitar), Donnie Herron (multiple instruments including pedal steel, mandolin and banjo), Tony Garnier (bass) and George Recile (drums).

I wish her continued good health and happiness,” Toohil said after meeting with Pennisi. One of six children, the award recipient was born Jan. 10, 1910, in Italy. She survived tuberculosis as a child. As an adult she has taken pleasure in cooking, dancing, reading, knitting and crocheting. Pennisi was honored as May 22 as part of the festivities of the Unico Club of Hazleton’s annual Bell’ Italia Festivale, which honors the area’s oldest man and woman of Italian heritage.

director of the Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau, planned to attend the meeting with Corbett along with the bureau’s board members. Gasper told the AP that one of her top concerns is the steady decline in state funding for tourism promotion. She said her own agency is receiving no state money this year. The Endless Mountains region takes in four counties — Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming. Corbett is a staunch ally of the natural-gas industry,

which pumped nearly $1 million into his 2010 campaign, the AP story said. The AP story noted that Pennsylvania remains the largest natural gas-producing state that does not tax gas production, and Corbett steadfastly opposes any new tax. Corbett said he paddled a kayak for 10 or 11 miles Wednesday morning, beginning in Mehoopany. He said he felt no ill effects from the exercise, despite having back surgery a couple of months

ago. “I’ve wanted to do this for a long time,” he said, adding that planning for the trip began when his wife, Susan, gave him a kayak for his birthday. “It was great exercise and, as you can see, I need to do a lot more of it.” Corbett marveled at the Nicholson Viaduct, the 2,375foot-long concrete railroad bridge that spans Tunkhannock Creek 240 feet above. Construction on the bridge began in 1912 and it opened in 1915.

country. I wish that more people would understand that, but they don’t, unfortunately.” Scranton Fire Department Deputy Captain Al Lucas said he was honored for the opportunity to recognize the young man killed overseas. His son, Alan, is a Marine currently serving in Afghanistan. “It’s very important as a public servant that we come out and honor anyone who has served their country,” Lucas said. “With my personal connection with my son serving in his second tour in Afghanistan, obviously it hits home when we lose a Marine. When the family asked if we could take part in this funeral procession, we absolutely jumped at the idea.” Bells tolled from St. Ann’s Basilica at 9:39 a.m. as the hearse carrying Staff Sgt. Dolphin traveled up St. Ann’s Street from De Sales Avenue and under a large American flag suspended from Engine 1 and Truck 2 of the Scranton Fire Department. The hearse was led by a motorcade that included the Pennsylvania State Police, Dunmore Police Department, Friends of the Forgotten and more. Surrounded by family, Dolphin’s widow, Lindsey, a Scranton native, breathed a heavy sigh as an honor guard of Marines carried his casket into St. Ann’s. The Rev. Don Williams, chaplain of Misericordia University and former pastor of St. Eulalia’s Church in Elmhurst, where Staff Sgt. Dolphin was an altar server, recalled the Marine as a very focused young man. “I remember in my days at St. Eulalia’s when we would come together and many of Patrick’s peers were searching and struggling about career paths and college choices. It was all figured out for him. He wanted to be a Ma-

customed to military life. “I would like to go to the U.S. Naval Academy and serve my country. That’s the reason I came here,” said Dubinski, a sophomore at Holy Redeemer High School in Wilkes-Barre. “I wanted a taste of military life.” Young people between the ages of 12 and 15 residing in the Troop P four-county coverage area are eligible for Camp Cadet.

rine. That’s it,” Williams said. Dolphin graduated from North Pocono in 2000 and almost immediately joined the USMC. Outside St. Ann’s, Scranton resident Diana Harris said she was impressed with Dolphin’s record of service and the outpouring of support shown by the region after his death. Harris and Dolphin’s mother, Jean Golden Uffalussy, of Naples, Fla., were former co-workers at Regional Hospital of Scranton. “I knew Patrick. My children played with him when they were young. We haven’t seen him in years. It’s hard to remember that these children grow up. We still think of them as little kids,” Harris said.

Following services, Casey recalled President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, in which he classified deaths in the line of military service as “the last full measure of devotion.” “There’s no higher or more profound service than that,” Casey said. Dolphin was buried in Cathedral Cemetery, Oram Street, Scranton, near his uncles James J. Igoe, U.S. Navy, and Patrick Igoe, USMC, after Wednesday morning’s Mass.

Friday, they want to spend another week through this.” Connors said much of the training is similar to military boot camp in that it includes running, physical training and inspections. “Many of the events deal with law enforcement,” Connors said. “But then there are fun things the cadets do, like play dodge ball, having a canoe race, swimming. Camp Cadet is designed to work as a unit and to come together. That’s one of the things we tell them, if you try to do this alone, you will fail.” At a rock climbing wall, cadets on the ground yell in support of cadets having difficulty reaching the top 30 feet high. Blake Donovan, 16, of Dallas, returned for his second year at the camp as a counselor, a

mentor for the first-year cadets. To be a counselor, a cadet must have excelled the previous year, Connors said. “I’m a big brother to the younger cadets,” Donovan said, who is interested in a federal law enforcement career. “They’re doing a lot better, not complaining and doing well with (physical training).” Before each cadet spoke, they bellowed out, “sir” and ended their sentence with “sir.” Cadets are instructed on traffic stops, shooting firearms, fire prevention, climbing, boating, canine tactics, and arrest procedures. Troopers donate their vacation and personal time to instruct the cadets for the week. Camp Cadet is funded by donations and proceeds from an annual golf tournament.

arranged to exchange $150 for four crack cocaine rocks. Police said the informant met Beaubrun at the Turkey Hill on Wilkes-Barre Township Boulevard and Coal Street. When the informant identified a male walking up the street as “JG” police handcuffed Beaubrun. Police said that during a search they found four bags of suspected crack cocaine in Beaubrun’s hand, as well as three bags of suspected marijua-

na in his left hand. Police said they found three more plastic bags of suspected marijuana in Beaubrun’s right sock at police headquarters, and Beaubrun was taken to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility, where he was held on $20,000 unsecured bail for nine days. Court records indicate he waived his right to a preliminary hearing on May 25, sending the two counts to county court.

British PM vows to fight back

David Cameron promises to get tough with rioters as tensions rise in the city of Birmingham. By DANICA KIRKA and JILL LAWLESS Associated Press

New Thailand PM takes over

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra greets reporters Wednesday as she arrives for a photo at the government house, in Bangkok, Thailand. Yingluck, 44, the sister of an ousted Thai leader, became the country’s first female prime minister on Monday. Her 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.

LONDON — Britain’s prime minister hammered out a tough line against rioters Wednesday, determined to restore order and confidence on Britain’s streets as extra police officers flooded the capital for a second day. Even as Prime Minister David Cameron promised not to let a “culture of fear” take hold, tensions flared in Birmingham, where a murder probe was opened after three men were killed in a hit-and-run reportedly as they took to the streets to deter potential rioters. “We needed a fightback and a fightback is under way,” Cameron said in a somber televised statement outside his

Downing Street office after a meeting of the nation’s crisis committee. As if to underline his resolve, he underlined “nothing is off the table” — including water cannon, commonly used in Northern Ireland but never deployed in mainland Britain. The number of arrests in London alone climbed to 805, with courts staffing around the clock to process alleged looters, vandals and thieves — including one as young as 11. Cameron has recalled Parliament from its summer recess for an emergency debate on the riots Thursday. Outside the capital, in England’s second largest city of Birmingham, police launched a murder investigation into the deaths of three men hit by a car. Residents said the dead men, age 20 to 31, were members of Birmingham’s South Asian communities who had been patrolling their neighborhood to keep it safe from looters.

Midlands Police, said a man had been arrested on suspicion of murder. The violence has revived debate about the Conservative-led government’s austerity measures, which will slash 80 billion pounds ($130 billion) from public spending by 2015 to reduce the country’s swollen budget deficit.

Cameron’s government has slashed police budgets as part of the cuts. A report last month said the cuts will mean 16,000 fewer police officers by 2015. London mayor Boris Johnson — like Cameron, a Conservative — broke with the government to say such cuts are wrong.

SAVANNAH, GA.

U.S. soldier gets life An Army sergeant based at Fort Stewart was sentenced Wednesday to life in a military prison without parole for shooting and killing his infantry squad leader and another U.S. soldier in Iraq after they criticized him for poor performance. The military jury’s sentence also calls for Sgt. Joseph Bozicevich, 41, of Minneapolis to be demoted in rank to private and to receive a dishonorable discharge. The same court-martial convicted him of premeditated murder May 25 in the slayings of Staff Sgt. Darris Dawson of Pensacola, Fla., and Sgt. Wesley Durbin of Dallas at a small patrol base outside Baghdad on Sept. 14, 2008. The jury’s sentence ended Bozicevich’s court-martial 112 days after it began on April 20. NEW YORK

Leukemia study promising Scientists are reporting the first clear success with a new approach for treating leukemia — turning the patients’ own blood cells into assassins that hunt and destroy their cancer cells. They’ve only done it in three patients so far, but the results were striking: Two appear cancer-free up to a year after treatment, and the third patient is improved but still has some cancer. Scientists are already preparing to try the same gene therapy technique for other kinds of cancer. The study was published Wednesday by two journals, New England Journal of Medicine and Science Translational Medicine. SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA

North, South exchange fire North Korea fired artillery shells that landed near the disputed maritime line in the Yellow Sea on Wednesday, prompting South Korea to respond by firing its own shells toward the north’s sea border, officials said. The shells landed in the water and no injuries were reported, officials said. The exchange took place shortly after noon in an area of ocean that in November brought the last lethal exchange between the two sides — when North Korean shelling killed four people on Yeonpyeong Island. About 1 p.m. Wednesday, the north’s shells landed near the so-called Northern Limit Line, according to military officials in Seoul. The south responded about an hour later with its three-shot volley.

WASHINGTON — International forces killed the Taliban insurgents responsible for shooting down a U.S. helicopter and killing 38 U.S. and Afghan forces over the weekend, but they are still seeking the top insurgent leader they were going after in Saturday’s mission, the top American commander in Afghanistan said Wednesday.

MADISON, Wis. — A stand by Wisconsin Republicans against a massive effort to oust them from power could reverberate across the country as the battle over union rights and the conservative revolution heads toward the 2012 presidential race. Democrats succeeded in taking two Wisconsin state Senate seats away from GOP incumbents on Tuesday but fell one short of what they needed to seize majority control of the chamber. Republicans saw it as a big win for Gov. Scott Walker and an affirmation of his conservative agenda, the hallmark of which Walker has been his successful push to strip most collective bargaining rights from public workers. Walker said on Wednesday that even though his party managed to retain control of the Legislature, he thinks the recall election results show that voters want both parties to work together on jobs and the economy. “People still want us to focus on those two priorities,” Walker said. “They want us to work together.” Walker said he planned to meet soon with leaders from both parties to discuss areas where they could work together. The invitation was greeted with skepticism from Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca. “It’s bipartisan action, not bipartisan rhetoric that people are looking for,” Barca said.

Violence shows the growing desperation in face of famine Confrontations in Kenya, across the border from starving Somalia, are increasing, officials say. By TOM ODULA Associated Press

KAKUMA, Kenya — The two mothers exchanged blows as they held their wailing infants in their arms after one of the women tried to cut in the long line for children to receive treatment for severe malnutrition. The women faced off a second time after passing their children to onlookers amid the melee: The younger woman head-butted the other to the ground before hospital personnel intervened and separated them.

“She ordered me to move after she cut the line and I have been here since dawn. I could not let her,” said one of the women who only identified herself as Chipure, a mother of eight children, who got a swollen lip from being headbutted. The incident at the Kakuma Mission Hospital illustrates the growing desperation in northern Kenya, as a famine in neighboring Somalia that has killed tens of thousands draws an international aid effort. At least five people are reported to have died here in Kenya’s Turkana region, one of the most remote and marginalized areas in the country, where people depend on herds of animals that are dying from the drought.

compromise. “That would be necessary to pass both the Senate and the House and get the president’s signature, so this has to be done in a cooperative fashion,” Toomey said. “It has to be an exercise in finding common ground between Republicans and Democrats.” But, he added, “it also has to be constructive with respect to reducing our deficit and has to be pro-growth as well.” Toomey said he hopes the committee can make progress in reforming the tax code to lower rates, make it fairer and encourage economic growth, and he said that changes to entitlement programs — such as Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare — need to be considered because their cost isn’t sustainable. Toomey and other Republicans on the panel are almost certain to clash with Democrats over the depth of spending cuts and tax increases. On the latter subject, he cited his vote to eliminate ethanol subsidies as an example of where he and Democrats might agree. But, he also said that he’s not interested in voting for “some kind of big tax increase.” Toomey is a business ally and

HARRISBURG — U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, a former investment banker who’s a vocal critic of government spending, regulation and programs, was named Wednesday to serve on a new 12member congressional supercommittee that has the mission of writing a bipartisan plan to substantially reduce the federal government’s deficit. Toomey, R-Zionsville, was picked by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who called him a leader on budget and deficit issues with a deep understanding of fiscal matters. Toomey, a freshman senator, was one of only two Republican members of Congress from Pennsylvania to vote against the deficit reduction package that passed last week, and his appointment may test his ability to negotiate with Democrats. In a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Toomey stressed that he understood the need for

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, talked recently with the editorial board of The Times Leader. He was tabbed by the Senate minority leader to join the Super Committee tasked with tackling the U.S. deficit problem. Last fall, he defeated Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak to win Arlen Specter’s seat.

free-market advocate who opposes tax increases and has attacked the growth in government spending and programs as a threat to a healthy economy. His central campaign theme last fall — when he defeated Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak to win Arlen Specter’s seat — revolved around the growing

deficit and an out-of-control president and Congress that, he said, was chilling economic growth and slowing down recovery from the recession. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, named conservative Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, a rising force among House Republicans,

as GOP co-chairman of the powerful new panel. Boehner also appointed House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp and House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton, a pair of veteran Michigan Republicans, to the committee. In addition to Toomey, McConnell named confidante and No. 2 Senate GOP leader Jon Kyl of Arizona, tabbing a lawmaker who is retiring in 2013 and is a solid conservative. He also appointed freshman Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, a former budget director and trade representative for President George W. Bush who is viewed as a possible vice presidential pick next year. On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., chose Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who runs the Senate Democratic campaign arm, as Democratic cochair of the debt committee. He also appointed 2004 Democratic presidential nominee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., a centrist who strayed to back

Bush’s 2001 tax cuts, to the new panel. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has yet to name her three members. Toomey maintains that the deficit reduction package that passed Congress last week wasn’t serious enough, partly because it programmed most of the spending reductions to happen in the future, when a different Congress could reverse it. But he also said he believes the committee has a real opportunity to make important progress toward balancing the nation’s budget. “This is a very, very important moment in the history of our country,” Toomey said. The committee is tasked with coming up with at least $1.2 trillion in savings over the coming decade. It has a deadline of the day before Thanksgiving to advance a plan that gets at least seven votes from panel members. If it fails, or its plan doesn’t pass the House or Senate, across-theboard spending cuts would be triggered in various programs, including Medicaid, farm subsidies and the defense budget.

Century-old water mains in South W-B area will be replaced

The city waives permit fees so the water company will pave the streets in project area. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Crews from Pennsylvania American Water Co. will be replacing more than 6,500 feet of water mains in the city beginning with a 106-year-old cast iron main under Sambourne Street next week. Later this month cast iron water mains dating as far back as 1879 will be replaced with new ductile iron pipes in other parts of South Wilkes-Barre. The $1.2 million work is part of

the company’s annual system upgrades aimed at modernizing the infrastructure while improving water pressure. “What we do every year is take a look at our distribution system and identify smaller mains or areas where we’ve had breaks or problems,” said Susan Turcmanovich, a water company spokeswoman. She said that in the locations chosen in South Wilkes-Barre, many of the existing pipes will be removed and pipes twice the diameter will be installed. “A bigger main produces more pressure,” she said. She said new fire hydrants will also be installed as part of the project. Work next week along Sam-

bourne Street between Sullivan and Wood streets will remove 4inch mains from 1905 and replace them with 8-inch ones. Mains under other city streets are also slated to be upgraded later this month. They include: • South Franklin Street, from Academy to Wood streets, where crews will install more than 1,400 feet of new 8-inch water main and replace two hydrants. • Sullivan Street, from South Main to South Franklin streets, where crews will replace an existing 4-inch main and one hydrant. • Garfield Street, from South Main to South Franklin streets, where crews will replace 6-inch

main with new 8-inch pipe and one hydrant. • Walnut Street, between South River Street and Carey Avenue, where crews will install more than 1,000 feet of new 8-inch pipe, replacing the existing 4-inch water main. • Wood Street, from South Main to South Franklin streets, where crews will install 1,000 feet of new 8-inch water main and one new hydrant. Turcmanovich said traffic dis-

ruptions might occur, and the company will issue announcements as the projects draw closer. During construction, customers might experience temporary service interruptions, discolored water and/or lower than normal water pressure. Crews will work as quickly as possible to shorten the length of these temporary inconveniences, Turcmanovich said. The company expects to

complete the water main installation and final paving restoration by late fall. The paving work is a bonus to the city, said Drew McLaughlin, mayor’s office spokesman. He said the city waives the water company’s permit fees, and in exchange the company does the paving work itself. He said the amount of money the fees would bring in is nowhere close to the cost of paving all those streets.

Sister Madeline Boback August 9, 2011 Madeline Boback went S ister peacefully home to the Lord

early Tuesday evening, August 9, 2011, at Mt. Macrina Manor. She had been a member of the Uniontown Province of the Sisters of St. Basil the Great for 63 years. Sr. Madeline was born in WilkesBarre, a daughter of the later Michael and Catherine (Krawchak) Boback. A former member of St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church in Wilkes-Barre, she entered the community on September 15, 1948. Sr. Madeline pronounced her First Vows on August 15, 1950, and made her Final Profession on August 28, 1953, in the presence of the late Bishop Daniel Ivancho. Although her main purpose in entering the community was not to be a teacher, she brought these qualifications with her to the community. She, then, like many others, was assigned to the ministry of teaching and /or principal for a good part of her religious life. Her many students will testify that, while she was strict as a teacher, she had a listening heart and was well-loved by those who passed through her classes. Sr. Madeline could make even Shakespeare palatable with her dramatic readings of his plays. She especially treasured the students of Mt. St. Macrina Academy and looked forward with delight to their visits when they attended the Alumnae Reunions. Sr. Madeline was also called to serve in the administration of the Province as Assistant Provincial for two terms. In addition to fulfilling this duty, she also served as Provincial Secretary and School Supervisor. Her other assignments included editor of the Voice Magazine, assisting with secretarial duties at the Generalate in Rome, the Card and Prayer Department at the Monastery, Parish Office Work in McKees

Rocks, and Administrative Secretary for the Eparchy of Phoenix. She was valued for her discretion and integrity in the fulfillment of all her assignments. Writing about her desire to take the next step in her early years in religious life, Sr. Madeline wrote, “I rely fully on God’s inestimable Mercy and Goodness. I desire nothing save that His Holy Will be accomplished in me and by me all the days of my life. May it please God in His infinite tenderness to look kindly on my request.” As Sr. Madeline gave her life back to God, this request was certainly granted to the fullest. Sr. Madeline was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Catherine. In addition to her Sisters in community, she is survived by her sister, Sylvia Boback; and several devoted nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends will be received at the Monastery Chapel from 3:30 to 9 p.m. Sunday.

In Loving Memory of JOHN (Jack) D. RODGERS III 10/9/66 ~ 8/11/10

You were right about so much. No one says anything good till you’re gone. No one knows how loving, understanding and generous you were. I’m so glad our last visit was so wonderful. I hope you heard my message before you took the trip. Only God knows why. I’m so glad we made so many trips, shopping, eating out, listening to music, watching movies. Surprised that you and Janet did as much. Any happiness and love is better than none at all. You said that you would never let anything happen to you after Ed, but God had other plans. All you went through in your life and overcame on your own. I built you up to be indestructible which makes this harder to deal with. Granny is best friends with Black Jack and Shadow is with me. Janet has Patches and Sissy. Knowing how you loved decorating your Christmas tree, Janet had your picture on the angel on her tree top. Just started fishing back with your brother and got close to nieces and nephews. Father Bob became your savior as he is mine. This is no life when everyone you loved is being taken away. My cross is getting harder to bear. I’m trying to keep my faith and prayers through our previous memories. Cats miss their daddy. I hope you and your brothers and Johnny are happy. Till we are together again, God take care of my boys. Gone, but never forgotten.

Sadly missed, Deeply Loved Mom, Dad, Granny, Family, Friends, Bob & Your five cats Always & Forever I Love You Janet, fiance

Judge says agency on the hook for charges stemming from Odetta Todd case.

The project was begun in late 2004 when Michael A. Lombardo was mayor but was redesigned when funding sources were cut back. The remaining funding will come primarily from the developers and about $660,000 from the redevelopment authority. The project calls for construction of 41 condominium units in a six-story structure and would include 82 offstreet parking spaces. Origi-

nally, two separate towers were to be built with 98 units. Construction is expected to begin later this year. “We will meet with all parties involved to discuss a timetable for the project,” said Jerry Mullarkey, executive director of the redevelopment authority. “We look at this as yet another round of good news for the city. This will bring new residents to the downtown and we are elated to see it moving forward.” It was announced last week that Pittston’s Main Street redevelopment project will receive $3 million in state RACP grant funding. Mullarkey said the grant will be put toward the construction of a $6.45 million retail and office building to be developed by Gilbro Realty, Old Forge, on the northeast corner of North

Main and William streets. The building is planned to include 6,800 square feet of first-floor retail space and 9,100 square feet of office space. Some of the grant will also be put toward the renovation of a neighboring threestory building, the construction of off-street parking spaces and some streetscape revitalization work. Lombardo, who serves as vice chairman of the redevelopment authority board, said he was pleased to hear of the funding approval. Lombardo worked for former Gov. Ed Rendell, who first approved the RACP funding for the project. The condominiums will be located adjacent to the Cooper’s Seafood Restaurant on Kennedy Boulevard along the Susquehanna River.

“This is a great project for the city,” Lombardo said. “We are very happy to have been notified that the state funding has been approved.” In his letter, Zogby said the RACP grant agreement will be drafted and go through the signature process, and the funding should be released “in the very near term.” On the Siniawa website, the project is described as having landscaped walkways, garden walls and handicapped accessible ramps and elevators. It will offer “high-end, unique housing, fulfilling a viable need in the local market.” Mullarkey said there will be two-bedroom units ranging from 1,190 square feet to 1,500 square feet and three-bedroom units with 1,620 square feet. He said pricing will start at about $265,000.

Dems stump for gas driller taxation, rules By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – As Gov. Tom Corbett paddled leisurely down the Susquehanna on Wednesday, opponents of his anti-tax stance on natural gas extraction stood on the river’s bank, decrying his laissez-faire approach and stumping for legislation to tax and better regulate the state’s developing gas industry. State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Forest Hills, and others held a press conference on the River Common to emphasize the need for a Marcellus Shale legislative policy that creates jobs for Pennsylvanians and protects environmental resources. An essential part of that policy must be a gas severance tax or impact fee distributed to counties and municipalities impacted directly or indirectly by drilling, Yudichak and Costa said. “Without a responsible extraction tax and revenue sharing, coal boomed and went bust, leaving thousands without jobs and turning some of our communities into ghost towns,” Yudichak said. “Are we poised to repeat the same mistakes with

Marcellus Shale development?” Yudichak introduced a severance tax bill earlier in the year and said he worked to get impact fees on natural gas extraction incorporated in the 2011-12 state budget but was asked by the governor’s office to wait for the Governor’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission’s recommendations to be released before introducing impact fee legislation. That commission’s report was released July 22, and Yudichak said the legislature must act soon to enact a severance tax or impact fees to compensate local municipalities for the impacts of drilling and to fund environmental protection programs that have run out or are rapidly exhausting their funding. Some of the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission’s recommendations, like updating the state rail infrastructure, improving pipeline infrastructure and developing “green corridors” for natural-gas powered vehicles, require significant investments of state capital, and it’s only fair to ask the gas industry to pay their fair share, Yudichak added. Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority Executive Director Jim Brozena said an extraction tax could fund flood-control programs and infrastructure, including funds that could help Plymouth recover from damage in flooding on July 3. Brozena said the state Department of Environmental Protec-

The focus of gas drilling companies has shifted in recent years to the Marcellus Shale, a massive rock formation underlying New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. The recent increase in unconventional gas drilling has helped the nation become self-sufficient in meeting its demand for natural gas, the panel said, but public opposition has been galvanized by the potential for serious impacts on human health and the environment. “These adverse environmental impacts need to be prevented, reduced and,

Senator John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, speaks at the River Common on Wednesday about the need for more regulation of the Marcellus Shale gas drilling industry and a tax on natural-gas extraction. Standing with Yudichak are, from left, Michael Kwashnik of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; Paul O.

The event attracted about 30 citizens. Wilkes-Barre resident Norm Johnstone said he supports responsible natural gas development and came to encourage the

where possible, eliminated as soon as possible,” the panel said. “Absent effective control, public opposition will grow, thus putting continued production at risk.” Without a coordinated, systematic approach to shale gas development, widespread drilling has the potential to harm public health, the environment and people’s quality of life “even when individual operators conduct their activities in ways that meet and exceed regulatory requirements,” the report said. Deutch, a chemist best known as CIA director under President Bill Clinton, said the economic benefits of shale gas “massively outweigh” the environmental and public health impacts — if those impacts are kept to a manageable level. Shale gas production has risen from 8 percent of total output in 2007 to nearly 30 percent in June of this year, according to the Energy Information Administration, which provides information on energy production. That has resulted in lower costs for consumers and could reCO

duce the nation’s dependence on foreign sources of oil, the committee report said. To reach the gas, energy companies use horizontal drilling combined with fracking. The technique pumps millions of gallons of chemically laced water and sand at high pressure down the well bore to release the gas molecules. Many companies already voluntarily report some of the ingredients in their fracking cocktails to a relatively new online registry called FracFocus. But the Department of Energy panel noted that FracFocus excludes many chemicals often used in fracking. It called on regulators to require complete disclosure. Yet the panel’s view of fracking itself is unlikely to satisfy critics of the practice. The panel said it “shares the prevailing view” that fracking poses a low risk to drinking water supplies because thousands of feet of earth separate fracking chemicals from groundwater. Neither side in the drilling debate is pleased with the makeup of the panel. Twenty-eight scientists and academics

cellus Shale Advisory Commission’s recommendations, which he feels will not adequately regulate the industry and protect the public. Wasilewski said he is concerned that the 500-foot gas well setbacks from private water wells the Commission recommended are not adequate and that the state has failed to provide an economic safety net for homeowners whose properties have been ruined by gas drilling.

complained in a letter to Chu on Wednesday that it lacked impartiality, “appears to be performing advocacy-based science and seems to have already concluded that hydraulic fracturing is safe.” The letter, which was distributed by Environmental Working Group, a Washington-based group that questions the safety of fracking, called on Deutch to step down and be replaced with someone with no financial ties to the oil and gas industry. Deutch is on the board of Cheniere Energy Inc., a developer of liquid natural gas terminals. Erik Milito, upstream director of the American Petroleum Institute, complained the panel lacks industry expertise, saying in a written statement that drillers are already heavily regulated and committed to high standards. Deutch defended the makeup of the seven-member panel, saying it represents a good mix of backgrounds, including academic experts, industry consultants and two former state environmental agency chiefs.

Third mud spill reported in pipeline project

DALTON — Drilling mud spilled into a high-value northeastern Pennsylvania stream for the third time, prompting crews to temporarily divert the waterway from the area where the discharges took place. Less than 100 gallons of nontoxic drilling mud was discharged into Laurel Lake Creek in Susquehanna County, and most of it was recovered, state Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Daniel Spadoni said Wednesday.

The spill happened Monday, the same day that construction on the pipeline resumed after earlier spills prompted a five-day halt. DEP staff conducted a stream survey to assess the impact on aquatic life, but have not made a determination, Spadoni said. Hoping to prevent a recurrence, crews are building a flume pipe to redirect the creek upstream of the discharges. Once the flume is complete, Laser will resume drilling, Spadoni said. Laser spokeswoman Chris Staffel said the company anticipates being able to resume drilling today. She said this pipeline project has been a huge engineering challenge. “The engineers who designed the initial plans are all from Texas, and they’re going, ‘What are we getting ourselves into in Pennsylvania?’ ” Staffel said. “The terrain is so difficult.”

RICE TOWNSHIP SUPERVISORS

School to link to sewer line

Rice Township Elementary School will be able to connect to Nuangola’s system. By JIM MORRISSEY Times Leader Correspondent

RICE TWP. – With Nuangola Borough in the final planning stages of installing public sewer lines, Crestwood School District has requested the borough include the district’s Rice Township Elementary School on Church Road on the sewer lines. Rice Township supervisors on Tuesday night approved a resolution to allow this request to connect to Nuangola’s waste collection system under the “Official Act 537 Plan� of the borough.

In other business, the supervisors voted to begin a catch-andrelease program for fishing at the Ice Lakes until further notice. The program went into effect on Wednesday and will be posted. Supervisors also passed a motion to join with the Penn State Cooperative Extension for its “Young Lungs at Play� initiative to make public parks, playing fields and playgrounds tobaccofree. This will designate areas to be tobacco free and eliminate children’s exposure to secondhand smoke. The township received a $5,000 donation for use at the Ice Lakes for “aquatic health, wildlife, preservation and beautification� from a person wishing to remain anonymous. Supervisors recognized the

generous gift. It has been placed in a restricted status within the township recreation account. In other matters, workers’ compensation insurance through H.A. Thompson Risk Management Services was placed with AmeriHealth Casualty Insurance Co. for a savings of $892 per year. Supervisor Chairman Miller Stella Jr. also voiced appreciation to the road crew for doing an outstanding job on what they have been dealing with due to the heavy rains. The crew has been efficiently doing projects from cutting grass to replacing bathroom locks on the Ice Lakes public rest rooms. Stella also said township’s police chief and officers have been doing a stellar job.

SALEM TWP. – The board of supervisors acted Tuesday to apply for state grant funds to alleviate a storm water runoff problem that exists for residents along Shickshinny Valley Road. “We have to do something to help these people. This has been going on for too long,� Robert Pearce, board chairman, said. The state grant for $280,000 would be used to create a system to divert the runoff. Salem would have to come up with 15 percent, or about $56,000, as its share of

While Pearce and Supervisor Joseph Siesko concurred to seek a grant, a third member of the panel, Josh Kishbaugh, argued that it is a state road and as such, is the responsibility of the state and not Salem Township. In other action, the supervisors voted to: • Advertise for bids to install ramps for handicapped persons along East Second Street. Bids are scheduled to be opened at a special meeting tentatively

NESCOPECK – About a dozen residents of the 800 block of East Second Street complained to borough council Monday about criminal activity occurring in their neighborhood and the lack of police protection to deal with what was described as illegal drug sales. In addition, Councilman Paul Nye proposed that council consider buying Taser equipment for the police department in the wake of an incident in which a fleeing suspect was able to avoid capture because an officer was unable to stop his flight. “If the policeman had a Taser, he could have stopped the suspect,� Nye said. He proposed the purchase of two Tasers at $860 each. Council

man and ex-mayor of the borough, said he has witnessed drug deals in his Second Street neighborhood. In one incident, Boone said, he pursued a would-be burglar whom he was unable to capture. He said he telephoned for state police assistance, but it took more than two hours for a trooper to arrive. Boone said he was unable to get help from Nescopeck. Sandra Wright, council chairwoman, said the department is limited in size, and officers are only part-time. Wright said she is aware of illegal activity and sympathizes with the citizens, but she said the community lacks sufficient funds to expand the police department. She said she would encourage Mayor Tim Kelchner to schedule more nighttime patrols and increase surveillance in Boone’s neighborhood. Councilman Richard Powlus

said close to one-third of Nescopeck’s $330,000 annual budget – $85,000 – is allocated for police protection. Council also took under advisement a proposal by Councilman Marlin Henry to have surveillance cameras installed at the community park. Henry said ICU Surveillance of Beach Haven had submitted a bid to install two infrared cameras in one building and cameras in each of two other pavilions at a cost of $4,800. Nye said borough police again had communication problems with Luzerne County 911 during a recent police chase of a suspect. In that incident, an officer was unsuccessful in gaining contact with county 911 in order to forward a request for mutual aid, Nye said. It was only after diverting his call to the Columbia County 911 agency that the officer obtained assistance. Wright proposed that Nye schedule a meeting with Luzerne’s director, Dave Parsnik, in an effort to get prevailing communication problems resolved.

Editorial

OTHER OPINION: RIGHT TO KNOW

Keep door open to public records

F

OR HALF A century, Pennsylvania had an embarrassingly bad open-records policy. The 1957 law held that all government records were closed to the public unless a citizen met the legal burden of explaining why they should be available. A 2009 law, championed by state Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, turned this idiocy upside down: It made government records open unless the government could show they were covered by one of a number of exceptions. And it created an Office of Open Records for citizens to appeal to when agencies denied their requests. That office has thus far been a staunch advocate for open government, taking a generous view of what records should be made public and helping citizens get them. But a new court decision, reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Monday, threatens to shut the door on open records, at least part way. It forces citizens to jump through hoops in order to get the help of the Office of Open Records. A Commonwealth Court panel has ruled that when a citizen appeals to the office, he must now specifically cite and respond to all the grounds for denial that an agency cited when rejecting his request. So if you request a contract from city council, and council says no and cites 11 legal rationales, your appeal to the office must include an explanation of

G E T T H E FA C T S Find a citizen’s guide to requesting government records from any state government agency in Pennsylvania, at http://openrecords.state.pa.us/

why you think council is wrong on all 11 counts (and if you specifically cite only 10, no records for you). The main impact of this ruling will likely be to give agencies a tool for discouraging requests. Don’t want to turn over that salary information? Send back a dense denial letter and see if the requester has the energy and wherewithal to respond. To be fair, the court didn’t pull this requirement out of thin air. The Right to Know Law says a citizen “shall address any grounds” an agency uses to deny a request. The office had been taking a liberal interpretation of that language, but the court now says it can’t do that. Fixing this problem falls to the Legislature. Senate Majority Leader Pileggi has been working on a revision, though he says he’s not sure whether he’ll address this issue. That’s disappointing, since he led the charge for a better Right to Know Law. Pileggi should see that the spirit of the Right to Know Law has been compromised, and open up the doors to the Office of Open Records again. Philadelphia Daily News

QUOTE OF THE DAY “I believe that even in this, one of our darkest hours, I’ll tell you this West Texas optimist sees our brightest hour as just around the corner.” Rick Perry The Texas governor, who is a probable contender for next year’s Republican presidential nomination, on Wednesday called the United States’ economic turmoil a national nightmare but predicted better times are coming.

OTHER OPINION: PA. ROAD SYSTEM

Map to success: OK highway plan

C

OMPANION BILLS in the U.S. Senate and the House could turn on the green light for longdormant plans to cut new highways through central Pennsylvania. Both of the state’s senators, Democrat Bob Casey and Republican Pat Toomey, are cosponsoring legislation that would change federal law so that dollars the state invests in capital improvements to the Pennsylvania Turnpike would count as local matching funds toward the projects. A similar measure was introduced in the House this spring, with backing from members of the state’s delegation. If the legislation is enacted, it would mean Pennsylvania wouldn’t have to pay the typical

20 percent match for the road work, in effect, having the projects fully funded by federal dollars. Getting these projects moving without hurting Pennsylvania’s transportation budget is an ideal way to go forward. They both are part of the Appalachian Development Highway System, a plan created by Congress in the mid-1960s. More than 2,700 miles in 13 states have been completed or are under construction, but nearly $1billion is needed for the remaining legs in Pennsylvania. We hope the bills giving Pennsylvania credit for the dollars it spends improving the turnpike can sail smoothly to adoption in Congress. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I

am rather surprised that former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella’s attorney, Mr. William Ruzzo, would ask the federal judge to go easy on Ciavarella’s sentence because of the possibility of abuse he faces in prison and because he already has been punished. To date, I have not heard ex-Judge Ciavarella apologize to the kids whom he sent away, many without having an attorney available, nor to the victims of the kids who actually did commit the crimes for which they were sent away. These people also suffered. Mr. Ciavarella should receive the maximum sentence the federal judge can impose and put this matter to rest. James F. Vergura Pittston

Reader criticizes handling of ACCESS card case

I

wonder why fraud charges were not brought up against the illegal immigrant in Beaver Meadows who reportedly had possession of state public assistance ACCESS cards in other people’s names. Was the illegal immigrant carrying other people’s cards just for fun? Wouldn’t the state be concerned about giving food assistance to an illegal immigrant who obtained cards of people who supposedly were eligible for assistance? Wouldn’t those people be concerned that the illegal immigrant was using cards in their names? Gregory M. Suda Nanticoke

Cut Medicare costs by giving choice to opt-out

T

he AARP and the Democrats say “don’t touch Medicare.” They claim the program needs only minor changes and oppose almost all cuts. This is unrealistic and way off the mark. Medicare is a very costly program that is on pace to become far more expensive. This program is too big and its price tag is unsustainable, especially with the United States facing large budget deficits for a long time. To say the least, the Democrats and the AARP are out of touch. The Republicans led by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan have put forth a plan to reform Medicare. The Ryan plan does some good things but is not without its flaws. Under the Ryan plan, Medicare will still be an expensive program. This plan is also quite complex.

A much better way to reform Medicare would be to simply allow U.S. citizens the choice to opt out of the program. Suppose 25 percent of all Americans choose to opt out of Medicare. The program immediately would become much less expensive. Many U.S. citizens would be better off if they opted out of Medicare. They could instead save or invest income, which otherwise would be deducted from their pay as part of the Federal Insurance Contributions Act tax. A similar plan should be considered for Social Security. Barry Goldwater was correct in 1964 when he said that Social Security should be voluntary. The idea of citizens taking self-responsibility for their medical care and retirement is truly the mark of a free society. In addition, such a plan will save trillions of dollars over the long-haul and thus benefit the long-term fiscal health of the nation. Willie Speare Scranton

Bar council candidate from courthouse quizzing

I

would like to pose a question to our Luzerne County leaders, the commissioners, as to what right Kathy Dobash has to go through the courthouse asking employees questions about their jobs. She is only a private citizen who happens to be one of 22 people who have a chance to become a county council member. What if every resident of Luzerne County decided to do what she is doing? I suggest the commissioners find a way to end that practice. Not only is she apparently campaigning in the courthouse, but also she gets publicity from the news media. Using the excuse that she wants to see government in action “smells.” Why did she not visit the courthouse years ago to learn the operation of the system? If she is elected, she will have the right to address the different departments and their operations through the council chair. Until then, I urge the commissioners to stop her politicking and taking up the time of the county employees with her drivel.

Reader disputes letter’s take on Lincoln’s wisdom

I

take exception to the letter to the editor titled “Heed wisdom of Abe Lincoln” (Aug. 7) by Mr. Bevevino of Dallas. Everything that Abe Lincoln supposedly said in the statements attributed to him is true; however, none of it pertains to what is happening today. 1. Not one Democrat, politician, economist or this Progressive is discouraging thrift. None. As a matter of fact, we are encouraging it. 2. No one is proposing weakening the strong. 3. No one is proposing tearing down “big men.” As a matter of fact, we propose “big men” stop sitting on the trillions of dollars and start creating jobs. 4. No one is trying to destroy the rich. Quite the contrary. If a $30 tax on $1,000 destroys the rich, there is something wrong with the way they are living and managing their money. 5. No one is trying to tear down the “wage-payer.” The proposed repeal of the Bush-era tax cuts will not harm 90 percent of small businesses where the “wage payer” makes nowhere near the $250,000 mark. That’s where real jobs are created: small business. 6. You can keep out of trouble by spending more of your income, and that’s proven every time an investment is made in a business to make it grow, or every time a person takes a mortgage on a new home. If the only way you could own a home or send a child to college was to pay cash out of your pocket, we’d be a society of homeless dolts. 7. Class hatred? This one is laughable. Whenever Americans ask for equality (ie: blacks, Jews, Muslims, gays), they are accused of class warfare. How about equality? 8. Security on borrowed money? Lincoln could never have imagined the America of today and its global implications, including the roads, bridges, infrastructure of this great land. 9. No one is proposing taking anyone’s initiative or independence. These are the same people who say giving rights to others somehow takes away rights of theirs (ie: someone else’s marriage affects theirs, sensible gun laws/restrictions/licensing take away their guns). 10. No, you can’t help men permanently by doing for them, but rather by teaching them. This from the same crowd that would cut education and job training. No abortion, but no help for the babies born. This is the same crowd that tells people to pull themselves up by their boot straps. These people have no boots. Francis Saba Dallas

CIAVARELLA Continued from Page 1A

Ciavarella, 61, was convicted in February of 12 counts, including racketeering, mail fraud and money laundering, for accepting nearly $1 million from Robert Mericle, who built two juvenile detention centers the county utilized. The former judge faces up to life in prison under federal sentencing guidelines. Federalprosecutorsoriginallyalleged Ciavarella and former Judge Michael Conahan conspired to jail juveniles at the centers to increase profits, then extorted money from their one-time co-owner, Robert Powell. The jury found Ciavarella not guilty on those counts, however. Prosecutors never presented any evidence at trial that questioned the propriety of decisions Ciavarella made to incarcerate youths. The letters released by Kosik show parents are convinced Ciavarella’s rulings were motivated by greed. Parents described being shell shocked after watching their children be led from the courtroom in handcuffs and shackles. The letters contain the names of the parents and the juveniles. Out of concern for the privacy of the families, The Times Leader is withholding the identity of any letter writer who has not previously spoken out publicly. One of the parents, a woman from Wilkes-Barre, wrote about how she “felt like I had led a lamb to slaughter” after she appeared in court with her daughter. The woman said her daughter had been charged with a minor offense. She and the family’s attorney had assured her daughter that Ciavarella would be fair and would help her. They were wrong. “He yelled to have her removed from the courtroom as if she had committed murder,” the woman said in the letter. “We can still visualize her horrified face.” In another letter, a parent from Luzerne described how her son, a decorated Boy Scout, was sentenced to 35 days at boot camp for allegedly throwing a rock at a vehicle. “The judge ranted and raved about my son being a terrorist let loose on the streets of Luzerne County,” the woman wrote. “My husband and I and the rest of our family stood there in shock.”

Other parents spoke of the psychological harm their children suffered from being incarcerated. One mother wrote of how her11year-old son was incarcerated for two years after she turned him in for taking her car and driving it over a curb. The experience left him bitter and angry. “The point of this letter is for you tounderstandhowmanyliveswere destroyed,” the mother wrote. “I have to live with the knowledge thatmyfaithinthelawandthejudicial system is destroyed. My entire family and I know that I am to blame for the horrible things that happened to my son.” Those sentiments were shared by Sandy Fonzo, who gained national attention when she confronted Ciavarella outside the courthouse after his conviction. Fonzo claims Ciavarella’s incarceration of her son, Ed Kenzakoski, as a juvenile led to lifelong depressionthatcausedhimtocommitsuicide in 2010. In her letter, which Fonzo said she wrote while sitting at Ed’s gravesite, she implores Kosik to impose a lengthy sentence. “Please! I beg of you with everything I have left! Show these kids and families that there is justice!” Fonzo wrote. One of the juveniles sentenced by Ciavarella said he simply wants to see the judge accept responsibility for his crimes. “I did my time and paid restitution. I took accountability,” the man said. “Now it’s Ciavarella’s turn to do the same.” Kosik also received letters from Luzerne County District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll and Senior Judge Chester Muroski, who spoke of the impact the corruption scandal has had on the county and court system. “Quite simply put, it has been devastating and is likely to be a mark on the name of our county for years and years to come,” Musto Carroll wrote. Muroski also wrote of the “irreparable harm” that has been done to the court system’s reputation. “The same justice system that has been tarnished must now be relied upon to mete out an appropriate punishment for the harm that has been done,” he wrote. If that faith is to be restored, one parent wrote, Ciavarella must pay a high price. “He wants zero tolerance and accountabilitywithnomercy,thenhe should get as good as he gives,” the man wrote.

NUANGOLA COUNCIL

Way clear for new sewer line

Approvals are in place, and USDA relaxes ultimatum on awarding contract. By TOM HUNTINGTON Times-Leader Correspondent

NUANGOLA – Borough council and its sewer authority received a double dose of good news Wednesday: Rice Township supervisors had enacted a resolution Tuesday night allowing pipelines from a proposed collection system to pass through the township, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture had relaxed an ultimatum requiring the borough to effect a timeline to advertise and award contract bids for its proposed system. The announcement about Rice Township came after a special borough council meeting Wednesday morning, when council approved an amendment to the Act 537 plan. The amendment stipulates to the state Department of Environmental Protection “a complete and timely implementation” of its sewage

TIMELINE Jan. 26, 2009: Federal prosecutors announce then-judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan have signed a plea agreement that calls for them to each plead guilty to honest services fraud and tax evasion in exchange for 87-month prison sentences. Feb. 12, 2009: Ciavarella and Conahan formally enter guilty pleas to the charges before U.S. District Court Judge Edwin Kosik. July 31, 2009: Kosik rejects the plea agreements, saying he did not believe the former judges had adequately shown they accepted responsibility for their crimes. Aug. 24, 2009: Ciavarella and Conahan formally withdraw their guilty pleas. Sept. 9, 2009: Federal prosecutors file a 48-count indictment against Ciavarella and Conahan, charging them with multiple counts including racketeering, honest services fraud, bribery, extortion, mail fraud, money laundering and tax evasion. Sept., 15, 2009: Ciavarella and Conahan enter pleas of not guilty to the indictment. April 29, 2010: Conahan enters a plea deal with federal prosecutors that calls for him to plead guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy. There is no agreement on sentencing. July 23, 2010: Conahan enters a guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy. Sept. 29, 2010: A new, 39-count indictment is filed against Ciavarella. The indictment makes technical alterations to the original indictment based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision that impacted the honest services fraud statute. Feb. 7, 2011: Ciavarella’s trial begins in federal court. Feb. 19, 2011: The jury returns its verdict, finding Ciavarella guilty of 12 counts, and not guilty of 27 counts filed against him. Aug. 11, 2011: Ciavarella is scheduled to appear before Kosik at 9 a.m. for sentencing.

the corner of South Main and Northampton Streets in Wilkes-Barre. Vinsko’s bidding knocked out two other interested buyers. The city previously purchased two other properties in this series of connected buildings, though two more are still privately owned. The strip faces the Main Street lofts above the downtown theater complex, and city officials hope a developer will mirror that project, Vinsko said. “We will look to expand the streetscape improvements started with the theater and work with development agencies,” he said. Albert Raiani traveled from Hillsborough, N.J., and bought two properties

ant city attorney, said he would like to see the ACLU represented at a council meeting to witness what goes on. There have been several recent incidents of loud behavior and exchanges between council, the mayor and members of the public. “We completely agree that free speech is the most important thing at council meetings,” Vinsko said. “We are pleased to know that the ACLU recognizes the need for decorum. We hope the ACLU attends a meeting to get an accurate account of what occurs at the meetings.”

John Kochan, chairman of the authority, said one parcel is a residential property and the other is a commercial tract owned by a corporation Kochan didn’t identify. When asked, Kochan responded he anticipates Quad 3 will submit a design to the authority at some point between mid-September and early October. Regina Plodwick, chairman of council, said USDA representatives relaxed their ultimatum following a meeting Aug. 4. Plodwick said Nuangola outlined a good faith intention of moving forward after USDA had threatened to withdraw a commitment for more than $3 million in funding if Nuangola didn’t advertise for bids by Nov. 1, 2011 and award contracts by Jan. 31, 2012. After that meeting, Plodwick said, the funding is safe. The other part of the financial picture is that Nuangola signed in late July a note for another $3 million from Fulton Bank of Lancaster.

Wednesday but gave up on a third when the bids exceeded his comfort zone. Raiani said he purchased his first back-tax property at a county sale in March and has spruced up the West Pittston building to try to sell it. On Wednesday he purchased a twofamily house on Wyoming Avenue in Dupont for $16,000. The property is assessed at $78,200. He also successfully bid $14,000 for a home assessed at $76,200 on Lehigh Street in WilkesBarre Township.

Roper provided a list of concerns sent to her by city residents, and she offered the ACLU’s responses and advice. She said the list responds to the concerns, but “does not reflect our independent investigation.” The ACLU letter notes: • Both the Sunshine Law and the First Amendment preserve the public’s right to express their opinions to their government. They need not do so politely or with “decorum.” Roper said council can’t institute a rule that would forbid speakers from upsetting others

plan, as well as modification of the proposed pipeline route. The other aspect of the amendment to Act 537 consists of a route modification through Rice Township to the Mountain Top Joint Sewer collection site in Dorrance Township. Officials said the original proposal of May 2005 didn’t contain this route and a resolution was needed to satisfy DEP requirements. Besides USDA, Nuangola had been under pressure from DEP to move forward with the project, which was formulated in 2005 by Alfred Benesch & Co. and has been the topic of controversy since. The amendment, it was stated, reinforces action to move forward with Quad 3 Engineers of Wilkes-Barre now in the process of developing an engineering plan. Rice’s approval was essential because the proposed system will pass through Rice, as well as Dorrance Township, whose supervisors gave their approval Aug. 1. There still remains a matter of two

learning about the opportunity from a friend. Unlike many of the bidders who had extensively researched prospective buys, Lowe and Truong said they took chances Wednesday but plan to do their homework next time. Lowe bid at least $26,300 to buy seven properties with a combined assessed value of $322,500. He ran to the assessor’s office to obtain photos of his buys and seemed particularly happy with a three-unit apartment building in Ashley. “That’s a lot of house for $14,500,” Lowe said. Truong spent more than $7,300 buying at least five properties with a com-

in attendance, including council members. “The council may certainly suggest and model the desired level of decorum for council proceedings, but a member of the public may only be ejected from a meeting if he or she is actually disruptive of the proceeding such as an individual who interrupts other residents’ speaking time, or who refuses to stop talking after his or her time is up,” Roper said. • Residents must be granted an uninterrupted audience. Roper said a resident who is speaking may not be cut off

bined assessment of $364,100. Attorney David Schwager purchased a commercial trucking company building on Second Street in Plains Township for $47,000. It has an assessment of $229,000. The roughly 90 properties that didn’t sell Wednesday will go into the “repository,” a hodgepodge of properties in limbo. Properties may be purchased from the repository at any time if taxing bodies accept an offered price. John Rodgers, head of Northeast Revenue, said he’s working on an online auction to try to stir up interest in the hundreds of repository properties and get more of them back on the tax rolls.

based on what he or she chooses to talk about, unless the topic is completely unrelated to council business. • The council may institute reasonable time limits to allow everyone an opportunity to speak. “However, if everyone has spoken and an individual who has already spoken has more to say the council should allow that individual a few more minutes,” Roper said. • Council may not limit the residents to speaking on the topics they identify before the meeting, or before speaking,

and may not bar speakers who did not sign up ahead of the meeting. Council has denied Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former towing contractor, extended time to address multiple topics. Kadluboski has been given a total of five minutes to address all of his concerns. Roper, staff attorney for the ACLU’s Pennsylvania office, said last month that the organization is looking for a volunteer among its membership to attend the next council meeting. Council is scheduled to meet today at 6 p.m.

s a firefighter, Danny Watkins has been trained to walk into burning buildings, seal off collapsing structures and revive people convinced they’re about to perish. But the native of Canada says he’s never even seen an NFL game, much less helped rescue the hopes of a befuddled franchise. So the Philadelphia Eagles rookie will be thrown straight into the fire during tonight’s 7:30 p.m. preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens at Lincoln Financial Field. And while that won’t present anything close to a life and death situation, Watkins is already aware of how success-obsessed Eagles fans live and die with their team. That’s why they should be grateful to have Watkins around. He’s one of the main keys to resuscitating Philadelphia’s championship hopes this season, which is why the Eagles made Watkins their first-round draft choice in April. Because for all free agents and trades that turned the Eagles into the NFL’s version of a “Dream Team” this summer, one missed block could turn the whole thing into Philadelphia’s worst nightmare. Watkins doesn’t miss many. He is a rock-solid 6-foot-3, 310-pound guard who’ll flatten a defender before letting someone touch his quarterback. During his senior college season at Baylor, Watkins recorded 134 knockdowns in 13 games – which means his blocks sent defenders to the ground on an average of more than 10 times per game. The Eagles need that kind of toughness up front., because while their self-proclaimed “Superman” quarterback Michael Vick is explosive and elusive, his slight frame makes him a huge injury risk. He needs the kind of protection Watkins can provide. “You ask any of the other O-linemen, that’s going to be their priority as well,” Watkins said. “It’s all about building chemistry when the bullets are flying.” The Eagles are flying high after a spectacular offseason. They now boast a roster filled with much sexier preseason moves. They added Pro Bowl cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique RodgersCromartie, sack specialist Jason Babin at defensive end, Ronnie Brown at running back and Vince Young as a backup quarterback over the past couple weeks. Their best move may turn out to be the one they made with their first pick on draft day. We’ll start finding out starting today. “It’s going to be my first NFL experience. I’m just excited to get out there,” Watkins said. His main job will be making sure Vick stays out on the field with him. “He has a lot of work ahead of him,” Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. “But for the first couple of days, he’s been outstanding.” The resume of the 27-year-old Watkins is already filled with impressive accomplishments. He became an AllBig 12 selection at Baylor after playing his first football game at the age of 22. He served as an enforcer during his youth hockey days in Canada. He served as a part-time firefighter for five years in his hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia. During his first two weeks in Eagles camp, Watkins decked one defensive lineman during a skirmish and came to the aid of another when he held the head of convulsing Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson. Lives aren’t on the line for Watkins this time. Only the Super Bowl dreams of a city that could sure use his help.

Howard, Pence carry Phillies The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Ryan Howard and Hunter Pence homered as Philadelphia overcame an early six-run deficit and beat Los Angeles 9-8 on Wednesday for a three-game sweep. The Phillies won for the 12th time in 13 games and completed a 9-1 road trip. They improved baseball’s best record to 77-40. Down 6-0 after three innings, the Phillies scored four runs in the sixth for a 9-7 lead. Howard’s 25th homer was a tiebreaking, two-run shot with two outs. Kyle Kendrick (7-5) pitched one inning for the win after replacing starter Vance Worley. Ryan Madson, the sixth Phillies pitcher, got three outs for his 22nd save. Three of the five runs Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley gave up in 4 1-3 innings were unearned. Worley gave up six runs and seven hits in four innings. Pirates 9, Giants 2

SAN FRANCISCO — Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer, Jeff Karstens bounced back from his worst start of the season and Pittsburgh won its first series in three weeks. The Pirates took two of three from the reigning World Series champions on the heels of a 10-game losing streak. Reds 3, Rockies 2

CINCINNATI — Joey Votto hit the last of Cincinnati’s three solo homers, spoiling Kevin Millwood’s return to the majors, and the Reds turned a seasonhigh four double plays, holding on for a victory over the Colorado Rockies. Padres 9, Mets 5

NEW YORK — Will Venable sparked San Diego’s surging

offense with four hits from the leadoff spot and the Padres’ bullpen rebounded from consecutive flops, finally holding off the New York Mets in a victory. An error by second baseman Logan Forsythe allowed the Mets to cut the deficit to four in the ninth inning. With the bases loaded, Forsythe then made a leaping grab of Willie Harris’ line drive for the final out. Braves 6, Marlins 2

MIAMI — Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 31 games and Tim Hudson pitched into the eighth inning, leading the Atlanta Braves over the Florida Marlins for a three-game sweep. Uggla’s two-run single in the first inning tied Rico Carty for the second-longest hitting streak in franchise history. Tommy Holmes hit in 37 straight for the Boston Braves in 1945. Brewers 5, Cardinals 1

ST. LOUIS — Randy Wolf pitched eight sharp innings and the Milwaukee Brewers jumped on Jake Westbrook early to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Wednesday night, giving the NL Central leaders their 13th win in 14 games. Prince Fielder had a sacrifice fly in the first inning and an RBI double in the third to help the Brewers open a five-game cushion on the second-place Cardinals. Cubs 4, Nationals 2

CHICAGO — Reed Johnson, Alfonso Soriano and Geovany Soto each homered and the Chicago Cubs kept up their power surge in a win over the Washington Nationals. The Cubs have connected in eight straight games and have hit 19 home runs over that stretch.

Granderson’s 2 HRs lift Yanks over Angels The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Curtis Granderson hit a three-run homer off Garrett Richards before the rookie got his first major league out and the New York Yankees snapped their threegame losing streak with a 9-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night. Granderson later added his 31st homer of the season on a long shot to the second deck in right field. Robinson Cano tacked on a two-run shot in the seventh inning, getting within a single of hitting for the cycle. Ivan Nova (11-4) took over the big league lead in wins for rookies, allowing three runs and five hits in six innings. Peter Bourjos homered and Vernon Wells hit an RBI single for the Angels, who lost for the fourth time in 13 games. Indians 10, Tigers 3

CLEVELAND — Ubaldo Jimenez showed why Cleveland traded for him, winning his home debut and rookie Jason Kipnis went 5-for-5 with four runs and three RBIs as the Indians shaved another game off Detroit’s lead in the AL Central by beating the Tigers. With its 13th straight win at Progressive Field over Detroit, Cleveland closed within two games of first place — and the Indians will have a chance to sweep the Tigers for the second time this year. That is, if they can beat Justin Verlander on Thursday. Blue Jays 8, Athletics 4

TORONTO — Brett Lawrie hit his first career grand slam and the feisty Toronto Blue Jays beat the Oakland Athletics. Before the game, Blue Jays

general manager Alex Anthopoulos, manager John Farrell and several players angrily denied an ESPN story that Toronto has been stealing signs with the help of someone stationed in the outfield. Then both benches and bullpens emptied in the eighth when Oakland’s Jordan Norberto hit Yunel Escobar on the left arm with a pitch. Escobar yelled and took several steps toward the mound but was restrained by catcher Kurt Suzuki, while Norberto walked toward the plate, responding to Escobar with his arms spread wide. No punches were thrown and the field was soon cleared. Orioles 6, White Sox 4

BALTIMORE — Nolan Reimold hit a two-run homer off Jason Frasor in the 10th inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the White Sox to end Chicago’s five-game winning streak. J.J. Hardy went 4-for-5 with a home run for the last-place Orioles, who blew a four-run lead before winning for only the second time in eight games. After Chris Davis singled off Frasor (2-2) with one out in the 10th, Reimold hit the next pitch over the center-field wall. Rays 8, Royals 7

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Sam Fuld hit a game-tying triple and then scored on an errant throw to complete a five-run ninth as the Tampa Bay Rays rallied to beat the Kansas City Royals. Fuld hit a drive to right center off closer Joakim Soria (5-5) and wound up scoring the running run when second baseman Johnny Giavotella was charged with an error for a bad relay throw to third.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L 1907 — In the second game of a doubleheader, shortened by agreement, Ed Karger of the St. Louis Cardinals pitched a seven-inning perfect game, beating the Boston Braves 4-0. 1926 — Tris Speaker of Cleveland hit his 700th career double but the Indians lost to the Chicago White Sox, 7-2. The double came in the third inning off Joe Edwards. 1929 — Babe Ruth hit his 500th career home run in the second inning off Willis Hudlin at Cleveland’s League Park. The homer was Ruth’s 30th of the year, but it wasn’t enough as the Indians beat the Yankees 6-5.

HIGH SCHOOL FIELD HOCKEY

Ex-Comet lands coaching job By TOM ROBINSON For the Times Leader

Former Crestwood captain Erica Suitch has been selected as the next field hockey coach at Abington Heights High School. Suitch met with about 30 players from the team Wednesday night, a week after agreeing to accept the position. “They are eager for the season to start,” Suitch said. Suitch will be running the team from the start of official practice Monday morning while

waiting for her appointment to be formally approved at the next school board meeting. As a midfielder at Crestwood, Suitch was a big part of the 2003 and 2004 state championship teams. She was captain of the 26-0 team in her senior season. “I knew all along that I would like to give back and help future players develop,” Suitch said. Suitch is already a coach in USA Field Hockey Futures program at its Kingston site. She

also has spent the last two years as a coach with the Valley Styx indoor club team after helping out with the program during the previous three years. Following her career at Crestwood, Suitch played one season at the University of Richmond, then transferred to Hofstra where she was a three-year starter and a national all-academic selection. Suitch earned degrees in elementary education and psychology at Hofstra. She recently

added a Master of Education in School Counseling from Bloomsburg University. Abington Heights went a combined 3-27 in the Wyoming Valley Conference the last two seasons. Suitch replaces Michelle LaCoe and becomes the school’s fourth varsity coach in the last seven years. This is the third time in the last six years that the program has had a coach named in the weeks before the season started.

Philadelphia signs ex-Giants WR Smith

The Associated Press

BETHLEHEM — The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with former New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith on a one-year deal Wednesday. The 26-year-old Smith had 220 catches for 2,386 yards and 11 touchdowns in four seasons with the Giants. In his 2009 Pro Bowl season, he caught a franchise-record 107 passes for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns. Smith sustained a seasonending left knee injury in the Giants’ win over the Vikings at Ford Field in Detroit on Dec. 13 and had microfracture surgery eight days later. He said Wednesday night he believes he’ll be able to play soon. “I think I’m pretty close,” Smith said. “I think I can realistically be out there (the first month). It could be week one. You never know.” Giants coach Tom Coughlin told reporters Wednesday after meeting with Smith that he believed Smith faced a “long haul” before he could play again. “I would disagree with that,” Smith said. “I feel good. I’ve been running, cutting, doing different things. I haven’t had any setbacks.” Smith said he was examined by doctors from both the Giants and Eagles and said both gave him a positive report. Asked why Coughlin might have indicated that Smith faced a longer rehab than Smith’s doctors expressed to him, Smith said, “Maybe Coughlin had a plan up his sleeve when he said that. We’ll see what happens when I get out on the field.” Smith said he believes the real reason the Giants didn’t want him was financial. “Yeah, shoot,” he said. Smith said he couldn’t speculate exactly when he’ll be able to return to practice. “I’m not sure,” he said. “If it was up to me, I would say I could go practice tomorrow, but I want to be extra careful and don’t want to rush it and have any setbacks. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get out there really soon.” Smith enters a crowded wide receiving field with the Eagles, who also have twotime Pro Bowl pick DeSean Jackson; Jeremy Maclin, who caught 70 passes last year but hasn’t practiced yet this training camp because of an undisclosed illness; Jason Avant, who caught 50 passes last year; and second-year pro Riley Cooper. “We feel very good about our current group of receivers and Steve adds another dimension to that position,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said. “He’s played very well against us in the past few years and we’re happy to have him on board.” Although Smith was almost exclusively an inside slot receiver in his four years with the Giants, Smith said he’s equally comfortable in any role. “I feel great inside, outside,” he said. “The Giants used me

C A M P S R O U N D U P mainly inside, but I feel like I can do both.” Smith is the sixth Pro Bowl player to join the Eagles in last two weeks, following cornerbacks Dominique RodgersCromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha, defensive end Jason Babin, quarterback Vince Young and running back Ronnie Brown. “(General Manager) Howie Roseman and I are always keeping our eyes open for good football players and players that we think can help our football team win,” Reid said. “And Steve Smith certainly fits that category. He’s a Pro Bowl-quality receiver that we will work into our offense as soon as he is ready to go.” 49ERS SAN FRANCISCO — Apparently not everything on Twitter is true. Just ask Dashon Goldson. After tweeting goodbye to the only NFL franchise he has ever known, Goldson surprisingly re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers, agreeing to a one-year deal, and was a full participant in training camp for the first time Wednesday. The secondary that was filled with holes at the start of camp suddenly could be a strength this season under new coach Jim Harbaugh. Goldson is expected to start opposite safety Donte Whitner this year, and both admit it’s an unlikely duo after a wacky ride in free agency. The 49ers open the preseason at New Orleans on Friday night. SAINTS METAIRIE, La. — Sean Payton says the Saints’ improved depth and versatility at linebacker means the coaching staff with have important evaluations to make in that area as the preseason wears on. The only job that seems certain is that of defensive captain and middle linebacker Jon Vilma. Both outside spots are uncertain as the first preseason game against San Francisco approaches on Friday night. Also unclear is who’ll join Vilma in the middle when the Saints switch from their regular 4-3 alignment to a 3-4. Jonathan Casillas, who is coming back from injury, and incumbent starter Scott Shanle are vying for snaps on the weak side. Clint Ingram and Will Herring are getting work on the strong side, while Jo-Lonn Dunbar has moved from strong side to the middle behind Vilma.

suddenly playing with a sense of confidence that makes coaches and teammates believe that he will be a major contributor this season. The 22-year-old also is one of the people benefitting from the team’s contract dispute with veteran Osi Umenyiora. Pierre-Paul is getting the majority of reps with the first team while Umenyiora sits around and waits for a resolution to his situation. LIONS ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher still has at least one NFL rooting interest. Fisher has been taking in a bit of training camp with the Detroit Lions, who are coached by Jim Schwartz, his former defensive coordinator with the Titans. Detroit also hired Fisher’s son, Brandon, this offseason to assist its defensive coaching staff. Fisher, who parted ways with the Titans following last season, says he’s impressed with the job Schwartz is doing after taking over a team that went 0-16 the season before he arrived. Detroit went 2-14 in Schwartz’s first year before improving to 6-10 last season. The Lions announced some roster moves Wednesday. They signed safety Michael Johnson and center Rudy Niswanger and released linebacker Quentin Davie.

head home to Arrowhead Stadium for their preseason opener Friday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. STEELERS LATROBE — Dennis Dixon is hanging around. Charlie Batch is hanging on. Both quarterbacks know there’s only room for one of them on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ roster. Each is hoping to use the preseason as a chance to showcase why they should be the one who sticks around. Dixon and Batch figure to get plenty of snaps when the Steelers open the preseason on Friday night. They find themselves at opposite ends of their careers. The 26-year-old Dixon is eager to show he’s ready to become a starting quarterback. The 36-year-old Batch is hoping to get through another season. Dixon signed a one-year contract last week and knows time is running out for him to make an impact in Pittsburgh, while Batch says he’s not ready to think about retirement yet.

Veteran O-line looks to lead Notre Dame The Irish return four out of five starters up front as they aim to return to a BCS bowl.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Everywhere Trevor Robinson looks, he sees familiar faces. And for the veteran Notre Dame guard, that’s really a good thing. For Notre Dame to get where it wants to go this season — a BCS bowl — the Irish will rely on an offensive front that returns four starters. On the day before camp began last week, Coach Brian Kelly quickly pointed to the line as one of the team’s

strengths. “There are times where it’s tough for an offensive lineman to be a team leader. Just by the nature of what you do,” Robinson said. “It’s kind of a point we want to get to. We know we can be successful and we want to be the group that takes the team to success.” Robinson, who has made 27 starts as he enters his fourth season, will be joined by three other returning starters — center Braxston Cave and tackles Zack Martin and Taylor Dever. The only missing piece from last season is left guard Chris Stewart, who played a year ago while attending law school and has used up his eligibility.

almost two days at a hospital before being released Tuesday, saying in a statement he wanted to shift the attention back to his team. The Nittany Lions apparently didn’t miss a beat at practice without him. “For us, it’s business as usual,” linebacker Michael Mauti said this week. “Our assistant coaches have been there before. We know where we need to go and our goals, whether Joe is there or not. I think he would want us to do the same thing ... Keep our heads down and keep working.” Last year, the defense didn’t live up to its typical lofty standards. Penn State was seventh in the Big Ten against the run (165 yards per game) and tied for eighth in sacks with 17. They were also porous in the red zone, allowing opponents to score a league-worst 91 percent of the time (34 of 37) inside the 20. Paterno put much of the blame on himself. “I don’t think we played very well last year. I don’t think I did a very good job coaching last year, to be frank with you,” Paterno said last month at Big Ten media day in Chicago. “I’ve got to do a better job. Everybody’s got to do a better job.” The energy level has apparently been turned up in camp, according to postings from players on Twitter. Mauti, a redshirt junior, said the first week was the most intense so far in his career. “It’s a lot of running, a little more than we’re used to,” he said. “Joe says this is how hard we need to win, so we just buy into that. ... We’ve taken the attitude, ‘Whatever it takes.”’ At certain times last season, the Nittany Lions had enough trouble just keeping up with the injury report. Ends Jack Crawford (right foot) and Eric Latimore (left wrist) were among those sidelined, as was starting safety Nick Sukay, who had a chest injury. The linebacker position took a hit, too, with Gerald Hodges and Mauti also missing some time. They’re all back on the preseason depth chart, though the Nittany Lions are already down a key player after end Pete Massaro went down for the season in spring practice with a left knee injury. The flip side to the injuries was that backups and younger players gained experience that have helped make camp more competitive, Mauti said. “It’s a huge difference, with a year of experience you can tell. You’ve got a lot more communication because we’ve all been there before,” Mauti said. “The injuries didn’t help. They’re all factors.”

In the fourth when Gwinnett opened a 2-0 lead it did so on just one hit, but two walks. The Braves loaded the bases with no outs against Mitchell and plated a run on a wild pitch. The other run in the frame came across on a run-scoring groundout. “I was in a good rhythm early and later but those two innings I got out of the rhythm,” Mitchell said. “I built momentum and wanted to go as far as I could and put up zeroes and give our team a chance.” Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got one back in the bottom of the inning using a similar method as the Braves. Mike Lamb drew a one-out walk and after Jorge Vazquez singled, the two moved up a base on a wild pitch. A batter later, Brandon Laird drove in Lamb with a sacrifice fly to cut the lead to 2-1. Wilkin Castillo belted a solo home run to begin the top of the fifth and the Braves tacked on another run to go up 4-1. SWB cut the deficit to 4-2 in the eighth when Laird got another runner in from third on a grounder. However, the Yankees left two on base in the seventh and eighth and one more in the ninth. Overall, the Yankees left 10 on base and were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position. “Early in the year we had that same problem and then we got better and it’s baseball you’re going to go through spells and you’re looking for another guy to pick you up but we’re not all clicking right now,” Laird said. “(Cordier) has a good slider and he had it working tonight. He didn’t really leave it over the plate where you could put a good swing on it.”

The Irish have veterans ready to step in for Stewart in fifth-year senior Andrew Nuss, who played in 13 games a year ago and can also play tackle, and Chris Watt, who can play guard or center. “This is the most continuity we’ve had from year to year since I’ve been here,” Robinson said, crediting the system that Kelly implemented upon his arrival in December 2009. “Everything was different and now everything is almost the same. ... Where we are now compared to where we were last year, it’s really night and day.” The Irish allowed only 20 sacks through 13 games a year ago in a spread offense in which the quarterback is often moving.

Robinson and his buddies will be blocking for the likes of Cierre Wood and Jonas Gray when the season opens Sept. 3 against South Florida. On Wednesday, the Irish put on their pads and concentrated on the running game. Kelly said it was obvious that his two most experienced quarterbacks, Dayne Crist and Tommy Rees, were ahead of sophomore Andrew Hendrix and freshman Everett Golson in this segment of practice. Kelly hopes to announce his starter after the first 19 practices, which would fall around the third week of August. “Everett and Andrew would obviously show better if we were

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Jim Tressel made $21.7 million as Ohio State football coach over his decade-long tenure before being ousted for breaking NCAA rules, records from the publicly funded school show. Tressel earned more than $3.5 million in 2010, the year he learned about and covered up an improper benefits scandal that has resulted in Ohio State meeting with the NCAA’s committee on infractions this Friday. The figures were released Tuesday by the university as part of a public-records request by The Associated Press. They show that part of Tressel’s pay — $4.6 million — came from an exclusive apparel deal with Nike under which Ohio State directed a portion of the money it received to the coach. Tressel also received more than $100,000 worth of regular-season game tickets in addition to $835,000 for taking the Buckeyes to three BCS title games.

we’ve got the right plays called. ... Those guys have pushed themselves up a little bit because of the way we are playing right now.”

Pocono races shortened The Times Leader staff

LONG POND – Starting with the June 10, 2012, Pocono Sprint Cup Series race, the scheduled distance for both NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at the Long Pond facility will be shortened to 400 miles. “The 400 mile distance will make NASCAR racing at Pocono even more exciting,” stated Raceway President and CEO, Brandon Igdalsky. “Race strategies will change, fuel mileage calculations will be altered and I firmly believe that our fans will be treated to outstanding racing

at the 400 mile distance.” “NASCAR supports Pocono Raceway’s move to two 400mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in 2012,” stated Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR Senior Vice President, Racing Operations . “We believe this will be a good transition for the fans and competitors. It will provide the teams with a new type of strategy and should make for even more exciting competition at a unique facility that has a longstanding history in our sport.” The date for the second Pocono race next year is August 5, Pennsylvania 400.

GWA advances to Eastern Regional final round Greater Wyoming Area scored three times in the bottom of the sixth and Nick O’Brien survived the seventh to give his squad an improbable spot in the Senior League Baseball Eastern Regional championship round, defeating Quincy, Mass., 6-4, on Wednesday night in West Deptford, N.J. GWA won a doubleheader for the second time this week and will need to sweep one more if it is to earn a spot in the Senior League World Series in Bangor, Maine, this coming weekend. Greater Wyoming Area will

face unbeaten Talbot, Md., at 10 a.m. today. If GWA wins the first game, a second will follow 30 minutes later. Trailing 4-3 in the sixth, Jack Granteed singled and Eric Walkowiak followed with a double to put runners at second and third. Quincy elected to try to stay out of the big inning and kept the infield back. Jordan Zezza smacked a grounder to second, scoring Granteed and tying the game. Quincy pulled the infield in with the score tied. Adam Romanowski ripped a single past the diving first baseman, scoring Walkowiak with the go-ahead

run. Romanowski finished the game 2-for-3 with a run scored and two RBI. A bases loaded walk later in the inning tacked on an insurance run for O’Brien, but it wasn’t an easy seventh. An error and a walk gave Quincy two runners on and the goahead run at the plate. But O’Brien, who had been pulled in the first inning from GWA’s early game due to wildness, coaxed a ground out to end the game Only two teams have ever come back from the elimination bracket to win the regional in the last 20 years.

Protection to deem the lake unsafe for athletes. “You could tell by the smell. It stunk. The beaches stunk,” said Kristin Stretanski, formerly of Kingston, after the 1998 race. “It hasn’t rained, and the water level is low so naturally bacteria is going to form.” The Wilkes-Barre Triathlon’s biggest obstacle came on the eve of the 1985 race.

David Kramer, the husband of former race director Pat Kramer, was struck by a vehicle while checking whether the bike course’s markers were visible. He died several days later. Each year, the David Kramer Volunteer Award is given in his honor to several of the triathlon’s dedicated volunteers. As of Wednesday, the forecast for Sunday is cloudy with a

chance of thunderstorms and a high of 78 degrees, according to Accuweather. Gensel said she will keep an eye on the radar before and during the race to see if the triathlon needs to eliminate the swimming portion if lightning is present. “As fun as we had” in last year’s torrential rain, she said, “I’m hoping that the weather picks up for us this year.”

with his father and members of the Valley West coaching staff. “I talked it over with my family first, but Coach Joe was the person I verbally committed to,” Lewis said. “He was definitely excited. He told me they needed skill players and that it was a great thing I was coming. He said it was great to have me and he welcomed me to the family.” Next fall he will become the first scholarship football player at Penn State from the Wyoming Valley Conference since 2004 – the final season for GAR’s Paul Jefferson. Verbal commitments are nonbinding. Lewis, who will graduate from Valley West next spring, can officially join the program in February on national signing day. He would then arrive on campus next summer for the 2012 season. A multi-sport star for the Spartans, Lewis will play wide receiver for the Lions. The 6foot-2 Lewis has played receiver and quarterback for Valley West, catching nine touchdowns as a sophomore and then topping 1,000 yards rushing and passing in his junior season. His talent and versatility saw him shoot up the national recruiting rankings as a wideout. Major recruiting services Scout and Rivals both listed him as a four-star prospect (out of five), with Scout rating him as the nation’s No. 7 receiver recruit in the 2012 signing class. Rivals ranked him the No. 23 receiver in the country, as well as the fourth best overall recruit in Pennsylvania. “He’s an individual that comes around once in a lifetime,” Valley West athletic director Sandy Mackay said. “It seems he has the ability to play at the next level – at the top level. And most importantly, more than anything, he’s a gentleman and a very good student and comes from a great family.” Lewis had scholarship offers from Division I schools from coast to coast, including as far away as the University of Oregon, last season’s BCS runnerup. But location played a big role in his decision, as well as the opportunity to play early. Since the 2005 season, Penn State has run much of its offense out of threeand four-receiver sets, allowing true freshmen such as Derrick Williams, Justin Brown, Curtis

Drake and Devon Smith to see the field right away. “I looked at every opportunity and I looked at all the other schools. This was definitely the best fit,” Lewis said. “I also know a lot of guys from the Valley don’t end up going there and that a lot of people would be excited for me to go there. And definitely the location was important – it’s really close to my family.” “I think he did a good job on doing his homework and visited a lot of schools in the past few months,” Valley West coach Pat Keating said. “Distance played a role, and obviously there’s the opportunity that he could play early. “I think that ultimately, when it came down to it, Penn State felt like home for him. It felt like the best fit.” The group arrived on campus around lunchtime on Wednesday and got to walk around team facilities as well as meet with academic advisors. In the afternoon, they watched the team practice and Lewis got to speak to Paterno. Until that morning, Lewis wasn’t sure if he’d be able to see his future coach. Paterno had been in the hospital until Tuesday morning after suffering injuries to his right arm and hip when a player collided with him during practice on Sunday. Despite sporting a sling, the 84-year-old Paterno was back just in time to greet Lewis on Wednesday afternoon. “The whole thing just seemed right,” Lewis said. “It was a beautiful day to (commit).” Lions land another Penn State got some more good news on Wednesday evening, as the Lions also received a verbal commitment from another coveted recruit in Illinois defensive tackle Tommy Schutt. Multiple recruiting services reported that Schutt, rated one of the top 50 recruits at any position in the country, pledged on the same day as Lewis. “I knew (picking Penn State) wasn’t all about me, but also about the people around me and the people who are going to be around me,” Lewis said. “We have a great class coming in (2012) and we can have a really great team.” The additions of Lewis and Schutt gave Penn State 15 verbal commitments for the upcoming class and pushed the team’s recruiting ranking into the top 15 nationally, according to Scout.

Rodman heading into Hall Friday

Hincapie, Vande Velde join Challenge The Associated Press

By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

The outrageous outfits and tabloid tales guaranteed Dennis Rodman fame long after he finished running with the Bulls. He was in Mexico about five years ago on a midnight run for tacos — the fun often started for Rodman around midnight — when a group of girls approached and started screaming his name. An amused Rodman turned to his agent and marveled, “Dude, these girls never saw me play basketball.” And what a player they missed. Rodman will get recognition for his often overlooked accomplishments on the court Friday when he is enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Chris Mullin is the other headline name, becoming the 11th member of the famed 1992 Dream Team to earn enshrinement as an individual. Big men Artis Gilmore and Arvydas Sabonis; eight-time NBA champion Tom “Satch” Sanders of the Celtics; five-time Olympic gold medalist Teresa Edwards; coaching greats Tex Winter, Tara VanDerveer and Herb Magee; and the late Reece “Goose” Tatum of the Harlem Globetrotters also will be honored at Symphony Hall in Springfield, Mass. All greats of the sport, but none as colorful or controversial as Rodman. He’s probably better known for wearing a wedding dress than a Detroit or Chicago uniform, and he’s aware that his antics turned off plenty. But beneath the piercings and tattoos was someone serious about his basketball, and only a few have won more often than he did since entering the NBA a quarter-century ago as a second-round pick of the

Pistons. “None of my teammates had no problem with me,” Rodman said in a phone interview. “And I always say to myself, if anyone has a problem with Dennis Rodman, all you’ve got to do is look at the record. Every team I went to, I won, and I was a big, major part of that team.” Indeed, he went 636-275, a .698 winning percentage that since his career started is bettered only by San Antonio’s trio of Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, according to STATS, LLC. Rodman led the league in rebounding an NBA-record seven straight seasons, won consecutive Defensive Player of the Year awards, and won back-to-back titles with the Pistons before teaming with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen for three in a row with the Bulls.

Anthony wins wild Stage 1 at Tour of Utah OGDEN, Utah — Jesse Anthony made up for what he called a stupid early attack by winning a five-way sprint to the finish Wednesday in the first stage of the Tour of Utah. Prologue winner Sergio Henao of Colombia retained the yellow jersey by finishing a close second in the 113.6-mile stage that climbed three times over north Ogden pass in the Wasatch Mountains. Henao’s teammate, Oscar Sevilla of Spain, was third just ahead of defending Tour of Utah champion Levi Leipheimer and Leipheimer’s Radioshack teammate, Janez Brajkovic. The six-day, 409-mile Tour of Utah — upgraded to one of the top three sanctioned stage races in North America — now heads south of Salt Lake City for a 99-mile sprint between Levi and Provo.

First priority, though, is a hug from his mother. Evans, the first Australian — and only the third non-European — to win the most prestigious event in cycling, landed at Melbourne Airport on Thursday ahead of parade in his honor Friday. After working toward a Tour de France win for the best part of his life, he says “when it all comes together, to have been supported all this way through and be able to bring the yellow jersey back to Australia, of course I’m proud to do it.” Evans and wife Chiara plan to spend Thursday with family and friends. “It’s always nice to come home and get a hug from your mum.”

A look at high-end consumers Nordstrom’s second-quarter earnings may have some clues about whether wealthier consumers are starting to cut back on their spending. For many retailers including Nordstrom, the quarter ran until the end of July. By that time, stocks were already falling sharply in response to the weakening global economy and the budget debate in Washington. Investors want to know if upscale shoppers are as nervous as everyone else.

Job openings rose in June

Employers posted more job openings in June and layoffs fell, a sign that hiring could improve in the coming months. The number of available jobs rose to 3.1 million, up from 3 million in May, the Labor Department said Wednesday. It was the highest total since March. Roughly 4.5 unemployed people, on average, were competing for each job in June. That’s down only slightly from 4.6 in May. In a healthy economy, the ratio is about 2 to 1. Even if all the positions were filled, there would still be about 11 million unemployed people. That compares to the 7.7 million who were out of work when the recession began.

Pessimism ignites Wall St. fire sale Selloff sends stocks plunging 520 points

B R I E F

By STAN CHOE AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Wall Street focused Wednesday on the bleak landscape ahead for the economy and sold off, wiping out the big gains from a day earlier. The selling was intensified by worries about debt problems in Europe. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 519.83 points. On Tuesday, the Federal Reserve said it planned to keep interest rates ultra-low for two

more years. After some initial confusion, the stock market staged a huge comeback and had one of its best days. But the interest-rate news proved to be a distraction. The Fed made the pledge because it sees almost no chance that the economy will improve substantially by 2013, and when investors focused on that, they dumped stocks again. “Now it gets back to the fundamentals,” said Mark Lam-

kin, founder of Lamkin Wealth Management, which manages $215 million. Wednesday was another day marked by big moves on the stock market. The Dow was down more than 300 points within minutes of the opening bell. It recovered some of that loss, then drifted steadily lower in the last two hours. Gold rose above $1,800 per ounce for the first time as more money poured into in-

vestments considered safe at a volatile time for the financial markets. Gold closed up, $41.30, to $1,784.30 per ounce. On top of concerns about the U.S. economy, Wall Street’s attention is still on Europe. Investors there are worried that Italy and Spain may be the next countries unable to repay their debts. The European financial system has been battered by fears about banks’ holdings of bonds issued by heavily indebted countries such as Greece and Portugal. This week, there have been addi-

The United States’ budget deficit has topped $1 trillion for a third straight year. The Treasury Department said Wednesday that the deficit through July totaled $1.1 trillion. Three years ago, that would have been a record high for the full year. This year’s deficit is on pace to exceed last year’s imbalance of $1.29 trillion. But it is likely to fall short of the record $1.41 trillion set in 2009. For the first 10 months of the budget year, spending has risen 2.4 percent while revenue has climbed 8 percent. That’s a sign more people are working and paying taxes, although unemployment remains high at 9.1 percent.

tional concerns about banks’ exposure to other banks. “It’s the same game of Old Maid playing out in Europe that was played out here during the subprime mortgage crisis,” said Quincy Krosby, an economist and market strategist with Prudential Financial. In Asia, the concern is that higher inflation in China could lead to slower growth. China, Brazil and other lessdeveloped countries have provided the strongest economic growth since the world began to recover from recession in 2009.

Pay TV’s business taking a hit, report says

DISCUSSING WHAT’S FAIR

Deficit again over $1 trillion

The Securities and Exchange Commission announced a civil fraud lawsuit Wednesday against St. Louis-based Stifel Nicolaus and former senior vice president David Noack. The SEC said they misled officials of five Wisconsin school districts by telling them $200 million in investments made in 2006, which ended up worthless, were safe. The risky complex investments were linked to default insurance protection policies on corporate bonds.Stifel Financial, in a statement, said the investments were suitable “based on what we knew in 2006.”

NEW YORK — The weak economy is hitting Americans where they spend a lot of their free time: at the TV set. They’re canceling or forgoing cable and satellite TV subscriptions in record numbers, according to an analysis by The Associated Press of the companies’ quarterly earnings reports. The U.S. subscription-TV industry first showed a small net loss of subscribers a year ago. This year, that trickle has turned into a stream. The chief cause appears to be persistently high unemployment and a housing market that has many people living with their parents, reducing the need for a separate cable bill. But it’s also possible that people are canceling cable, or never signing up in the first place, because they’re watching cheap internet video. If that’s the case, viewers can expect more restrictions on online video, as TV companies and Hollywood studios try to make sure that they get paid for what they produce. In a tally by the AP, eight of the nine largest subscription-TV providers in the U.S. lost 195,700 subscribers in the April-to-June quarter. That’s the first quarterly loss for the group, which serves about 70 percent of households. The loss amounts to 0.2 percent of their 83.2 million video subscribers. The group includes four of the five biggest cable companies, which have been losing subscribers for years.

New Star Trek theme park coming; beam over to Jordan

For fans of the Star Trek series, the last few years have been a “trekstravaganza” – with a blockbuster reboot of the series, several video games and more pop-culture interest than the franchise has enjoyed since the 1990s. It’s a good time to be a Trekkie. Now, there’s a Star Trek theme park in the works. It’s a $1.5 billion enterprise, which will include four hotels, and 17 “entertainment developments,” along with restaurants, theaters and shopping. The park is being developed in concert with Paramount Recreation and CBS Consumer Products. Don’t get your phasers in a fricassee

TECH TALK

NICK DELORENZO just yet, Trek fans, there’s one little bump in the road. The new theme park is a little off the beaten path. By that, I mean to say it’s in another country, namely, Jordan. You may ask yourself, “Why Jordan?” It seems that His Majesty King Abdullah II is quite the Star Trek fan. He even had a cameo on “Star Trek Voyager,” in the episode “Investigations.” And like most kings worth their salt, he’s fantastically wealthy, and more to the point, if he wants to spend the money on a Star Trek theme park, he can. Given the rabid nature of Star Trek

fans (to illustrate the point, Klingon, a language that was developed for the series, is more widely spoken than several real languages), and since a relatively modest 500,000 visitors a year are required for the property to be profitable, it seems like a fairly sound investment on the king’s part. The entire project, taken together, is called the “Red Sea Astrarium,” and construction is set to start in the city of

Aqaba sometime next year. With the loss of the “Star Trek: Experience,” a Star Trek-themed exhibit originally located in Las Vegas, a pilgrimage to Aqaba could be a journey of some significance to Star Trek fans the world over. If you have the means to undertake a trek to Jordan, despite the political instability in the region, it’s not a bad place to visit. Jordan has enjoyed excellent relations with the United States and other western nations for decades, has one of the highest standards of living in the Arab world, and has extremely progressive social policies.

Is anywhere safe? Overseas investors were selling stocks two weeks before the U.S. market began its worst plunge since the 2008 financial crisis. They worried that Europe's debt crisis would spread beyond Greece to countries like Italy. U.S. investors largely shrugged off those fears and focused on domestic issues like the debate over the debt limit. U.S. stocks peaked July 21. They began falling with stocks around the world on worries about the global economy and the downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Financial analysts say investors shouldn’t abandon global stocks. Some advice: Invest in companies, not countries. Swiss food maker Nestle is in a stable business. It has a dividend yield of 2.8 percent and its price-to-earnings ratio is only 6. The S&P 500’s yield is 2.4 percent, and its P/E is 13. You can find many companies like Nestle, says Simon Hallett, a fund manager at investment firm Harding Loevner. Look at emerging markets like Venezuela and Indonesia. Credit Suisse predicts emerging market economies will grow 6.3 percent in 2011. It expects 1.6 percent growth in the U.S. and 2.3 percent in the countries that use the euro.

Good news! Nature's air conditioner is turned back on. Indeed, much drier air has moved into town for the next couple of days to bring a refreshing change in the weather. In fact, we are in for some of the coolest nights since the first of July. There is no chance of rain between now and noon Saturday. However, rain will be approaching this weekend with some possibly arriving late Saturday but for sure on Sunday which could turn out to be a washout. The annual Perseid meteor shower peaks tomorrow night, but a full moon will steal the show and block all but the brightest meteors. - Tom Clark

ALEIGH, N.C. — As a restaurant hostess, Rebecca Elcan works a kind of runway as she leads diners to their seats, and so looking cute matters. As a 20-year-old student, being on trend does too. So on a recent day, Elcan chose a romper, her first — a strapless number printed with fanciful palm leaves, bought from Forever 21. “My roommate has always pulled them off really well, but some on mehavebeenbaggy,”shesaid.“Ireallylikethembecausethey’revery in style.” Indeed, rompers are big this season, and they’re not the only onepiecelooksluringthestylish.Model/entrepreneurImanandsinger Gwen Stefani have stepped out recently in sparkly vintage-style jumpsuits, proving the ’70s revival has made that look chic again. On last month’s BET Awards, singer Mary J. Blige took a distinctly modern approach, opening the show in a skin-tight, plunging V-neck jumpsuit paired with an asymmetrical metallic belt. And then there’s the trio of hungover Scandinavians who invented the OnePiece, a zippered front jumper, now all the rage in London and Los Angeles, and coveted by the likes of Sienna Miller, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

Home births have risen a dramatic 20 percent By LEANNE ITALIE Associated Press

NEW YORK — One mother chose home birth because it was cheaper than going to a hospital. Another gave birth at home because she has multiple sclerosis and feared unnecessary medical intervention. And some choose home births after Caesarean sections with their first babies. Whatever their motivation, all are among a striking trend: Home births increased 20 percent from 2004 to 2008, accounting for 28,357 of 4.2 million U.S. births, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released in May. White women led the drive, with 1 in 98 having babies at home in 2008, compared with 1 in 357 black women and 1 in 500 Hispanic women. Sherry Hopkins, a Las Vegas

midwife, said the women whose home births she’s attended include a pediatrician, an ER doctor and nurses. “We’re definitely seeing well-educated and well-informed people who want to give birth at home,” she said. Robbie Davis-Floyd, a medical anthropologistattheUniversityof Texas at Austin and researcher on global trends in childbirth, obstetrics and midwifery, said “at first, in the 1970s, it was largely a hippie, countercultural thing to give birth outside of the hospital. Over the years, as the formerly ‘lay’ midwives have become far more sophisticated, so has their clientele.” The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which certifies OB-GYNs, warns that home births can be unsafe, especially if the mother has highrisk conditions, if a birth attendant is inadequately trained and if

Some home birthers cite concerns over Caesarean sections. The U.S. rate of C-sections in hospitals hovers around 32 percent, soaring up to 60 percent in some areas. In some cases, there’s a “too posh to push” mentality of scheduled inductions for convenience sake (Victoria Beckham had three). Gina Crosley-Corcoran, a Chicago blogger and pre-law student, had a C-section with her first baby and chronicled nightmarish pressure from nurses and doctors to abandon a vaginal birth with her second. She followed up with a AP PHOTO third child born at home in April. “I do think there’s a backlash Chicago blogger Gina Crosley-Corcoran holds her 2-month-old daughter, Jolene, while her husband, John Crosley-Corcoran, against what’s happening in hospiputs shoes on son Jules, 3, in Lombard, Ill. tals,” she said. “Women are finding that the hospital experience there’s no nearby hospital in case ers say they want to be free of wasn’t a good one.” In Portland, Ore., acupunctuof emergency.

HACKENSACK, N.J. — Freshman Mark Rivera’s roommate experience at William Paterson University wasn’t exactly what he had envisioned. After informing his roommate before school began that he was gay and sensing an air of tolerDiscussions ance, the stuwere partially dent barely spoke to him born out of during the first transgender days and eventustudents not ally switched always feeling rooms. He explained to Rivcomfortable rooming with era by text that he was more hosomeone of mophobic than the same sex. he realized. “For the rest of the semester, I lived alone and still live alone,” said 19-year-old Rivera, of Paterson, N.J. “No one should be robbed of the full college experience. It starts with a roommate.” It’s a core reason why Rivera, vice president of Chosen: The GayStraight Alliance, said he and others are encouraging the university to join a growing number of colleges that allow students to choose roommates of the opposite sex to live with — identified as genderneutral housing. The college’s Residence Life office is researching the option and plans to speak to campus student groups, said Joseph Caffarelli, director of Residence Life. It now requires same-sex room assignments. “It would be a university decision once we get all of the information and look at what students think,” he said. Six years ago, only a handful of colleges in the country offered the housing, said Jeffrey Chang, cofounder of the National Student Genderblind Campaign, an organization that promotes LGBT-affirmative policies regarding campus housing. Eight schools have implemented the change just since October, hesaid.RutgersUniversitybecame the 60th school and largest university in the nation to have the policy when it approved the option in March, said Chang, a Rutgers law student. Discussions were partially born out of transgender students not always feeling comfortable rooming with someone of the same sex. As a result, many colleges provided limited options for transgender students such as placing them in single rooms, Chang said. “Makingthedecisionnottooffer it tells transgender students that they have to be in a system that doesn’t work for them,” said Jenny Kurtz, director of the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities at Rutgers. The trend gained additional momentum after last September’s suicide of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi,Changsaid.Clementi,of Ridgewood, N.J., jumped off the George Washington Bridge after his college roommate allegedly streamed an intimate gay encounter to Internet viewers via a Web camera. “In the aftermath of the Clementi tragedy, members of the university’s LGBTQ community told the administration that gender-neutral housing would help create an even more inclusive environment,” according to a university statement. “Since then, the university has been exploring this in greater detail.” Rutgers will offer the housing this fall at New Gibbons on the Douglass Campus and Demarest Hall and suites in Rockoff Hall both on the College Avenue Campus in New Brunswick, Kurtz said. Gender-neutral housing will take place in designated units on the Newark campus as well. Rutgers students had been pushing for the option for the past five years, Chang said. See DORMS, Page 2C

rist Becca Seitz gave birth to both her children at home, the first time in 2007 because she and her husband were without insurance. “It was never on my radar, until we couldn’t afford otherwise,” she said. “I’m granola, but not that granola. It cost us $3,300, as opposed to over $10,000 in a hospital.” Dr. Joel Evans, the rare boardcertified OB-GYN who supports home birth, said the medical establishment has become “resistant to change, resistant to dialogue, resistant to flexibility.” “Women are now looking for alternatives where they can be treated as individuals, as opposed to being forced to comply with proto-

Most studies of home birth have beencriticizedastoosmalltoaccurately assess safety or distinguish between planned and unplanned deliveries, according to researchers Kenneth C. Johnson and BettyAnne Daviss. In 2005, they published a study in the British Medical Journal based on nearly 5,500 home births involving certified professional midwives in the United States and Canada. The study, considered one of the largest for home births, showed 88 percent had positive outcomes, while 12 percent of the women were transferred to hospitals, including 9 percent for preventive reasons and 3 percent for emergencies. The study showed an infant mortality rate of 2 out of every 1,000 births, about the same as in hospitals at the time, Davis-Floyd said.

thewaisttogiveroomtofit,tobend over,” Ellis said. “Ultimately for women, the look brought evening attire to day wear, a casual evening wear.” Sounds comfy, no? But some fashion observers don’t think rompers have such an accommodating fit. “If you’re really curvy, you can’t wear them,” Bear said. “The whole point is the long line.” Even Elcan, who is slim, had to take the Goldilocks approach to find her romper. “They’ve never fit my

body the way I wanted them to,” she said. “This one fit perfectly.” “You should be 20ish. You should be in tip-top shape; no cellulite, no varicose veins, and let’s add, for my sake, no fake orange tans,” Haversaid.Inotherwords,itmight not be good to take a cue from tall, long, fit Cameron Diaz, who, at 38, was recently celebrated for her romper choices. The age-appropriate issue comes up in another way: Rompers can give off a juvenile vibe. “It’s that short Daisy Duke, girly-girl thing,” Bear said. “They’re only appropriate for people who fit that or want to communicate that.” Still, there are romper fans in the style community. New York style reporter Donna Kim thinks folks should take it down a notch when it comes to romper hate. With availabilityinstoresfromKmarttoMacy’s, there’s a cut for everyone, and rompers are good for all ages, she said. “It’s just shorts attached to a top,” she said. “It’s not as scary as you think.” Perhaps,butthere’soneaspectof the romper, and all one-piece dressing, that can’t be avoided: the potty issue. “Try to go to a public bathroom in one,” Haver said. “You have to pull the whole thing down and redress yourself.”

While some colleges like Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham are informally discussing the idea, others began offering the option years ago. Gender-neutral housing has existed at Montclair State University at the Hawk Crossings and The Village apartment com-

plexes since 2004, said Amie MacMath, program assistant of the school’s LGBT Center. But the school also launched a housing option in 2010 within Hawk Crossings that requires students to take a class within the LGBT minor and perform community projects related to or advocate for LGBT related issues. “Students need to feel comfortable and supported on campus in order to be successful in other areas,” MacMath said.

cols,whichhoweverwellmeaning, have the impact of both medicalizing childbirth and increasing stress and anxiety around delivery,”saidEvans,founderanddirector of the Center for Women’s Health in Stamford, Conn., and an assistant professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. By some accounts, in 1900, 95 percent of U.S. births took place at home. That slipped to half by 1938 and less than 1 percent by 1955. Today, most midwife-attended births take place in hospitals in the United States, and many midwives are licensed nurses. But there are also close to 1,700 midwives who practice outside of hospitals, said Davis-Floyd. In 27 states, so-called “lay” midwives who lack nurses’ training but are licensed and certified as professional midwives can attend births legally.

ROMPERS Diviningatleastpartoftheallureof rompers is as easy as putting one on. As readily as your mama snapped you into those sweet little cotton onesies, you can slip into a romper and be fully dressed. No need to worry if your top matches your bottoms. And that’s among the reasons some find them fashionably questionable. Or worse. “I despise them — if you talk to people in fashion, they will tell you it’s a fashion-victim getup,” said Sarah Haver, a New York stylist and founder of focusonstyle.com. “Can anyone over 25 wear them with confidence at all?” asked Susu Bear,ofscoopcharlotte.com.“Ithink of them as a summer fling. They’re cute, but not fashion-forward.” Rompers do, however, have a long past. The look started out as men’s underwearintheearlypartofthe1900s; by the 1920s, women athletes wore them, and by the ’30s, they became an outerwear look for women, said Diane Ellis, a fashion professor at Meredith College in Raleigh. “They’re nearly always coupled with a blouson top, and elastic at

Everyday heroes inspire others through their courage and sacrifice Dear Readers: I published a letter (June 6) in which a reader, “Alison in Ashland, Ore.,” asked you to name your heroes. She asked that they not be celebrities or family members. A tsunami of emails descended upon me — many of them moving, thought-provoking and inspiring. I’m sorry that space limitations prevent me from printing more of them — but I thank you ALL for your submissions. Read on: Dear Abby: Captain C.B. “Sully” Sullenberger! A humble man, under intense pressure, who saved the lives of his entire U.S. Airways Flight 1549 on Jan. 15, 2009. After landing his Air-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE bus in the Hudson River, he refused to leave his ship until all passengers and crew had disembarked. THAT is a true hero, someone going about his daily routine and doing something extraordinary. — Pamela F., Slingerlands, N.Y. Dear Abby: I’m nominating two people: Stephen Hawking, who has overcome disastrous physical and medical problems to become the world’s most prominent physicist, and Gustavo Dudamel, who has brought intense life to the L.A. Philharmonic and

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

the renewal of symphonic music in general, having lifted to new heights Venezuela’s “The Program,” which gives all students in that country the opportunity to make music. — Nancy E., Oak Ridge, Tenn.

As a teenager I watched in awe at his strength of character and heart. In that moment he showed us what the world could be if we, too, chose to stand up. — Emily F., San Jose, Calif.

Dear Abby: My personal hero is Rosa Parks. I grew up in a racist household and was even beaten for disagreeing. But the courage it took for Rosa to sit down and refuse to get up moved mountains for me. I thank her with all my heart. — Kendra in Haiku, Hawaii

Dear Abby: It’s Miep Gies, one of the women who helped hide Anne Frank and her family. She didn’t hesitate before saying “of course!” when asked for help, and when asked years after WWII, she said she would do it again in a heartbeat because it was the right thing to do. As an LGBT and AIDS activist, I’m often asked why I do what I do if it doesn’t affect me directly. I do it because it’s the right thing. To me, if more people thought like Mrs. Gies,

Dear Abby: My definition of hero has long been the man who stood in front of tanks in Tiananmen Square.

CRYPTOQUOTE

this world would be a much better place to live, so I try to remember her in everything I do. — Aless P., Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Dear Abby: Who are my heroes? My vote goes to the Navy SEALs who killed Bin Laden! — Marilyn W., Knoxville, Tenn. Dear Readers: Stay tuned. I’ll print more of your submissions tomorrow. 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.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

GOREN BRIDGE WITH OMAR SHARIF & TANNAH HIRSCH PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You lift the hearts and moods of others just by showing up. It’s a lucky time for meeting fun people who also happen to be good for you to know on a professional level. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are those around you who act like the police of every situation. You’re not so worried about controlling other people’s activities. You have your own beautiful chaos to control. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t have to try to be original, because you already are. You can’t help it! No two people — not even twins — have the same fingerprint. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone in your life has different preferences pertaining to personal space. Some like eye contact, others want hugs, and still others like to stay at a distance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will not be confused with a neat freak anytime soon. That is, unless you devote several hours to handling a certain area of your home. This is the perfect time to get in there and get it done. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The information trail goes cold, and yet you still feel a burning desire for knowledge. You might see this as a chance to seek the deeper knowing that comes from your intuition. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have no way of knowing who will be able to make use of your talent and ideas. That’s why it’s important to advertise. Post your message where it will reach as many people as possible.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Troubled people will gravitate toward you. They sense your empathic nature, and they will tell you their problems. Don’t worry about offering help. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your innate managerial skills will be put to use. You’ll sense who is the best person for the job, and you’ll know just how to state things to make the job appealing to that person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one can be 100 percent confident at all times. You may struggle with your own fears, doubt and skepticism, but keep pushing on anyhow. In the end, you’ll be victorious over these feelings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will feel good to give to a loved one, especially when the person isn’t even asking. Also, on some deep level, you know that if you don’t watch out for the other person’s quality of life, it will go down for both of you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Not only will you be able to see into the future, but you’ll do so in vivid detail. All you have to do is close your eyes and imagine what will happen next. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 11). You’ll dream big and then work backward to construct a framework for building that dream. Strong personal relationships are a source of fun and adventure in September. A quest to make the most of your money will help you afford a beautiful new lifestyle in January. Sagittarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 17, 20, 41 and 23.
