With runners on first and second, an error by the shortstop on what could have been an inning-ending double play loaded the bases for California. After a force play at the plate, the 12-year-old Pratto smacked a solid liner off a 2-0 pitch for the gamewinning hit.

NEW YORK — Stripped of hurricane rank, Tropical Storm Irene spent the last of its fury Sunday, leaving treacherous flooding and millions without power — but an unfazed New York and relief that it was nothing like the nightmare authorities feared. Slowly, the East Coast surveyed the damage, up to $7 billion by one private estimate. For many the danger had not passed: Rivers and creeks turned into raging torrents tumbling with limbs and parts of buildings in northern New England and upstate New York. “This is not over,” President Barack Obama said from the Rose

Pennsylvania watching streams, rivers Thousands of people in the eastern part of the state are without power. By PATRICK WALTERS and MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Irene, the hurricane that weakened to a tropical storm, contributed to at least four deaths and left hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvania customers in the dark Sunday as swollen creeks and rising rivers throughout the eastern half of the state stoked fears of more flooding in the days to come. Power companies warned that some could be without electricity for a week or more. On the Delaware River, the communities of Easton and New Hope braced for major flooding predicted to arrive today, and shelters prepared to accept flood evacuees. It was another river, the Schuylkill, that wreaked havoc on Sunday, cresting to more than 15 feet in Norristown and inundating homes with muddy water. At the 80-member Norristown Boat Club, members had a prime view of the swollen Schuylkill, lounging on the porch as the river rose and the water lapped the front steps. A few feet away, a speed-limit sign was almost entirely submerged. Club member Peggy Wilson, 56, of Norristown, said it was the second-worst flooding she’d seen on the Schuylkill since joining in the 1980s. “Lots of cleaning up,” she said. “After the water goes away, then we have mud. And that’s the worst, because it gets on everything.” Bud Buono’s house on stilts was surrounded by water, reachable only by watercraft. Buono, 51, who’s also a boat-club member, said he’d gotten everything out of his ground-floor basement ahead of the flood. But neighbors with older, bungalow-style houses weren’t so fortunate — they had water in their living spaces. “You take the good with the bad down here,” said Buono, who’s lived on the Schuylkill for 30 years. “It’s a different breed of people.” In Philadelphia, the Schuylkill flooded low-lying streets and crested at 13.56 feet just after 2

p.m. — below the15-foot level that city officials had forecast but still well over flood stage — and fell back to 13.42 feet. It was expected to drop through the night. Mayor Michael Nutter lifted the city’s state of emergency — the first since 1986 — and SEPTA, the city’s mass transit agency, resumed bus and trolley service, though regional rail to the suburbs remained shut down. Philadelphia International Airport reopened at 4 p.m. with limited arrivals, but no departures, airport spokeswoman Victoria Lupica said. Seven city buildings collapsed in the storm, but no injuries were reported. Some 21,000 in the city lost power. A total of 179 people and seven pets stayed in three city shelters. Nutter warned residents of the nation’s fifth-largest city to stay home and off the roads as the cleanup continued. Philadelphia got 5.7 inches of rain, waterlogging an already sodden part of the state that is in record territory for rainfall in August. “These are near-record highs,” he said of the flooding in some areas. “We do not want folks to be deceived by what’s going on.” Echoing Nutter’s call, Gov. Tom Corbett cautioned that residents

“We’re really working around the clock to try to get our customers back on as quickly as possible. Mother Nature has not been kind to us the last couple of days.” Karen Muldoon Geus PECO Energy

across the state needed to be mindful of the risk of flooding. “We have been very fortunate to this point,” Corbett said at a news conference. “Even though it’s clearing up out there, we’re not done yet.” Statewide, about 706,000 people lacked power late Sunday afternoon, according to Ruth Miller, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. The tally included 375,000 PECO electric customers in the Philadelphia area and 230,000 PPL Corp. customers in Allentown and points north. Some PECO customers may not get their power back for seven to 10 days, according to spokeswoman Karen Muldoon Geus. “We’re really working around

the clock to try to get our customers back on as quickly as possible,” she said. “Mother Nature has not been kind to us the last couple of days.” PPL said Irene damaged transmission and distribution systems, flooded substations, and knocked down countless power lines — a total of 3,500 individual cases of trouble. The state emergency agency attributed four deaths to the storm. Falling trees crushed a man in a camper in Luzerne County and a man in a tent in Dauphin County. A motorist skidded over an embankment and hit a tree on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Carbon County. In Monroe County, Michael Scerarko, 44, was killed when a tree fell on him in his yard, Pocono Township police Cpl. Doug Smith said. Scerarko, of Stroudsburg, pushed his son out of the way, but could not get out of the way himself. At Fort Indiantown Gap, the Pennsylvania National Guard monitored the storm and response in real time, plastering maps and operational data on a massive screen occupying much of one wall in a basement command center.

The storm knocked out power at the base, but generators kept computers and communications up and running as commanders coordinated efforts, including the evacuation of about 150 people from Perkasie, Bucks County, because of flooding. Guardsmen also cleared out a Monroe County mobile home park. Rising waters will continue to be the chief concern for rescuers. Even as the storm moved out of Pennsylvania, Guard officials monitored rainfall totals in New York — a major factor in downstream flooding. “You’re never quite sure when you’re out of the woods,” Col. Robert Hodgson told The Associated Press. For many, Irene was more nuisance than catastrophe. At Philadelphia University, junior Laurel Brooks used several buckets to catch leaks in her fourth-floor dorm room. She said there was water leaking out of the electric outlet. In Hatboro, a man was rescued by boat after he drove onto a flooded road and ended up clinging to a tree. In northeastern Pennsylvania, Wilkes-Barre residents evacuated their homes after Solomon Creek spilled over its banks, WNEP-TV reported. Water from Mehoopany Creek covered a bridge in Wyoming County. More than 70 people stayed the night at an American Rd Cross shelter in Darby, outside Philadelphia, mostly chatting, reading, playing board games and seeking solace in the company of strangers. Shakeriah Brown, 32, a homemaker from Upper Darby, said her son was playing basketball. “They’re little boys and they have so much energy to burn,” she said. Bill Day, 54, who moved out of Darby a year ago, returned Sunday in hopes of helping some of his former neighbors clean up. But none of them were around — all of them were still evacuated. As he surveyed the swollen waters covering the streets of his old neighborhood, Day said it wasn’t nearly as bad as he expected. “Floyd was worse than this one,” Day said of the 1999 hurricane. “I expected a lot more trees down.”

Parcel is located in W-B Twp. Commons shopping center

Catch basin is on county’s list By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

BILL TARUTIS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

The giant drainage basin in the Wilkes-Barre Township Commons shopping area is listed in the Sept. 22 back-tax sale.

Enrollment numbers are solid at area colleges

A giant, 5-acre catch basin in the Wilkes-Barre Township Commons shopping center anchored by Target is listed in Luzerne County’s Sept. 22 back-tax sale. It’s a concern because the basin was required to allow construction of retail properties in the land around it. Lower-elevation structures in Wilkes-Barre could flood during heavy rain or melting snow if the basin isn’t maintained or malfunctions. As of Friday afternoon, the owner – RB Wilkes-Barre, LLC – owed $138,933 in taxes for 2009 and 2010. Richard Birdoff, president of RD Management Corp. in New York City, is identified as the managing member of RB Wilkes-Barre in documents filed in the county Recorder of Deeds office.

Following a year when nearly every local college set enrollment records, schools are reporting solid student body numbers this fall but only the University of Scranton can boast a record freshman class this semester. However the other area colleges haven’t put their record book back on the shelf. Many are expecting record total enrollments as thousands of students flock to campus this month. In addition to Scranton’s record for incoming freshmen, schools are reporting new highs in the number of transfer students, resident students and overall applications reFRESHMAN ceived for adE N R O L L M E N T mittance.

housed pretty much everything the school offered. The order is “very open, committed to exactly what they say: Mercy, service, justice and hospitality,” Sister Jean said. In fact, several years before founding the order in 1831, Catherine McAuley used an inheritance to build a large house in Dublin, Ireland, expressly to help women and children. The dinner marks the 180th anniversary of the order. “When Sister McAuley founded the order, she did not want to be behind a wall like the cloistered nuns,” Sister Jean said. “They have always been hands-on, especially with women and children.”

Sister Jean demurs when asked her age, but concedes she graduated from Misericordia when a few of the founding sisters were still around. She notes they were an extremely well educated group – two plaques on the wall list 18 founders; 13 had doctorates, and the rest had master’s degrees. “It was quite remarkable, for the time,” Sister Jean said. Born in Branchdale, a small mining town east of Pottsville, Sister Jean felt the calling of religion in high school but delayed her response, deciding to train for hospital work in Pottsville before joining the order 45 years ago.

He recently alerted county commissioners to a water runoff system in a residential development, prompting commissioners to pull it from a back-tax sale so it wouldn’t land in the repository. Properties that are pulled remain the responsibility of the owner, he said. “If it goes in the repository, the county would be liable if it overflows and floods someone’s property. The county

would be responsible for maintaining it,” Rogers said. RB Wilkes-Barre has the ability to keep the property out of the Sept. 22 sale by paying the taxes, filing for bankruptcy or convincing a judge to grant more time to pay. County property and deed records show RB Wilkes-Barre purchased the site where the basin now stands as part of a larger parcel for $2.5 million in November 2002. The Wilkes-Barre Township Planning Commission approved a subdivision plan in 2002 that allowed the parcel to

be separated into several pieces, including one that now holds the catch basin, records show. Four of the parcels were then sold to other companies linked to RD Management before they were sold as a package for $32.9 million in December 2007 to VNO Mundy Street LLC, care of Vornado Realty Trust, in Paramus, N.J., records show. The parcels owned by VNO are occupied by several national chain stores and restaurants in the Wilkes-Barre Township Commons, county records

ber of applications with 2,565. The school also will set a record for full-time student enrollment, 2,025. The Rev. John Ryan, who is entering his first fall semester as president of King’s College, said the record number of new students says a lot about what kind of a reputation the school has made for itself. “The fact that King’s continues to break admission records during a time of economic uncertainty and fewer available high school students is a testament to the efforts of the entire college community,” Ryan said. Wilkes University will welcome 570 freshmen this fall, and while not a record that is significantly more than last year’s 516. Keystone College will welcome a record number of students tomorrow when more than 1,400 full-time students – and an additional 400 part-timers -- begin classes at the LaPlume campus. Though the 330 freshman students is just shy of the record class of 344 set last year, a record number of students will be residing on

campus with more than 500. “Keystone has worked very hard over the past two years to make the campus more responsive to student needs. In addition, this is our13th year offering bachelor’s degrees and I think that families are finally realizing that Keystone is very different than it was over a decade ago,” said Sarah Keating, Keystone’s vice president for enrollment. Marywood University in Scranton also has more students living on campus than ever before. Thanks to three dormitories that opened last year, the school has 1,100 on-campus students this fall. Misericordia University is not setting any enrollment records this year but it smashed the record set last year for applications received. The Dallas Township school received 2,011 applications from students looking to become members of the Class of 2015, a 24-percent jump over the record set last year. “The demand for a Misericordia education is one of the best ways to gauge the university’s performance,” said university spokesman Paul Krzywicki. “The increase in applications reflects the growing positive reputation

A couple of area colleges saw a dramatic drop in overall enrollment, including Luzerne County Community College. Penn State’s Hazleton campus saw a dip in overall enrollment of 95 students.

The school’s Chancellor Gary M. Lawler blamed the economy for the declines. “While the number of incoming freshmen has decreased slightly due to the residual effect of difficult economic times, the number of returning students is very strong and our campus residential facilities are at full capacity.” Baptist Bible College in South Abington Township has also set a record, but on-campus students won’t notice it. College spokesman Ken Knelly said the school’s online undergraduate enrollment is 158, nearly twice as many as the record set last fall when 80 students enrolled for online courses. All of the enrollment figures the schools provided for this story are unofficial and subject to change. Official figures will be set in September after the add/drop period has passed.

However, county officials have been unable to secure the estimated $8 million needed to complete that project, Brozena said.

The blue-domed building is the largest Sunni mosque in Baghdad. Two security officials and medics at two Baghdad hospitals put the casualty toll at 29 dead and 38 wounded. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. Al-Moussawi put the death toll at only six and said there was no significant damage to the mosque. Conflicting death tolls are common immediately after attacks in Iraq. “I heard something like a very severe wind storm, with

BAGHDAD — A suicide bomber blew himself up inside Baghdad’s largest Sunni mosque Sunday night, killing 29 people during prayers, a shocking strike on a place of worship similar to the one that brought Iraq to the brink of civil war five years ago. Iraqi security officials said parliament lawmaker Khalid alFahdawi, a Sunni, was among the dead in the 9:40 p.m Sunday strike. Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, a spokesman for Baghdad’s

How did this breach happen?” That the bomber detonated his explosives vest inside the mosque is particularly alarming, and it is reminiscent of a 2006 attack on a Shiite shrine in the Sunni city of Samarra that fueled widespread sectarian violence and nearly ignited a nationwide civil war. In that strike, Sunni militants planted bombs around the Samarra shrine, destroying its signature gold dome and badly damaging the rest of the structure. No group immediately

The bomber detonated his explosives outside the gate of a base in Qalat, the capital of Zabul province, said Salim Ahsas, the southern regional head of the Afghan police. The gunmen then started shoot toward the base. One was killed, another was captured and the third escaped, Ahsas said. No one else was killed, he said. The Interior Ministry said in a statement that three civilians were wounded — one woman and two children. The attack occurred on the same day that a government health worker and his driver were killed in a roadside bomb blast in the north. Dr. Ahmad Jawed Karim and his driver hit an explosive as they were driving in Takhar province’s Dahana Sangi district, the health ministry said in a statement.

Hit-and-run suspect caught

British police on Sunday charged a man suspected of participating in a hit-and-run attack that seriously injured two police officers during the height of the riots earlier this month. Jah-Kiel McDermott, 28, was charged with attempted grievous bodily harm, police said. McDermott faces a court appearance in London on Monday. The police officers sustained serious injuries when a car was driven directly at them. Both are now recovering at home. The incident happened in northeast London at 1 a.m. on Aug. 8, the second night of rioting and looting that hit London and other British cities in the worst urban violence in several decades. BEIRUT

Critics can’t leave country

Syrian authorities pursuing a crackdown against President Bashar Assad’s critics banned three prominent opposition figures from leaving the country Sunday, and security forces killed two people and arrested several others in northern Syria, activists said. Michel Kilo, Loay Hussein and Fayez Sara were on their way to neighboring Lebanon to take part in a televised panel discussion when they were told by Syrian immigration authorities at the border that they were prohibited from leaving out of concern for their safety in Lebanon. Hussein denounced what he called an attempt to keep them from speaking on television. The debate was to be aired by the U.S.-funded Al-Hurra television. MANAMA, BAHRAIN

Detainees’ charges dropped

Bahrain will dismiss charges against some people detained during crackdowns against Shiite-led protests and allow compensation to prisoners abused by security forces, the Gulf nation’s king said Sunday in a nationally broadcast speech. It came more than six months after his regime launched sweeping crackdowns against demonstrators seeking greater rights. In the speech, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa offered no clear concessions toward Bahrain’s majority Shiites, whose demands include easing the Sunni dynasty’s hold on power, setting policies and hand-picking government officials. Bahrain’s Shiites make up about 70 percent of the island kingdom’s 525,000 citizens, and complain that they face widespread discrimination, such as being excluded from top political and security posts.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Retreating loyalists of Moammar Gadhafi killed scores of detainees and arbitrarily shot civilians over the past week, as rebel forces extended their control over the Libyan capital, survivors and a human rights group said Sunday. In one case, Gadhafi fighters opened fire and hurled grenades at more than 120 civilians huddling in a hangar used as a makeshift lockup near a military base, said Mabrouk Abdullah, 45, who escaped with a bullet wound in his side. Some 50 charred corpses were still scattered across the hangar on Sunday. New York-based Human Rights Watch said the evidence it has collected so far “strongly suggests that Gadhafi government forces went on a spate of arbitrary

killing as Tripoli was falling.” The justice minister in the rebels’ interim government, Mohammed al-Alagi, said the allegations would be investigated and leaders of Gadhafi’s military units put on trial. So far, there have been no specific allegations of atrocities carried out by rebel fighters, though human rights groups are continuing to investigate unsolved cases.

Meanwhile, The Libyan rebel government will not deport the man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, its justice minister said Sunday. New York senators on Aug. 22 asked the Libyan transitional government to hold Abdel-Baset al-Megrahi fully accountable for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, which killed 270 people.

Indiana voucher program prompts many to change schools By TOM COYNE Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Weeks after Indiana began the nation’s broadest school voucher program, thousands of students have transferred from public to private schools, causing a spike in enrollment at some Catholic institutions that were only recently on the brink of closing for lack of pupils. It’s a scenario public school advocates have long feared: Students fleeing local districts in large numbers, taking with them vital tax dollars that often end up at parochial schools. Opponents say the practice violates the separa-

tion of church and state. In at least one district, public school principals have been pleading with parents not to move their children. “The bottom line from our perspective is, when you cut through all the chaff, nobody can deny that public money is going to be taken from public schools, and they’re going to end up in private, mostly religious schools,” said Nate Schnellenberger, president of the Indiana State Teachers Association.

PHILADELPHIA — A soldier suspected of killing four people in Pennsylvania and Virginia was found dead of an apparently selfinflicted gunshot wound in suburban Philadelphia after a daylong manhunt during which he fired at and injured officers, authorities said. The body of Leonard John Egland, 37, of Fort Lee, Va., was found shortly after 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the Bucks County community of Warwick Township, where he had been sought since early morning, said Pennsylvania State Police spokesman David Lynch. Egland fired at officers as he was sought in the Virginia deaths of his ex-wife, her boyfriend and the boyfriend’s Egland young son, as well as his former mother-in-law in Bucks County, police said. A body found matched the description and clothing of the suspect, said Mark Goldberg, police chief in Warwick Township. The coroner had yet to confirm the body as Egland’s, he said. Police in Chesterfield County, Va., said Pennsylvania police had asked officers at 1 a.m. Sunday to check on the welfare of people at a home, where officers found the bodies of Egland’s exwife, her boyfriend and his child. Names of the victims were not being released pending notification of relatives. Egland’s former mother-inlaw, 66-year-old Barbara Reuhl of Buckingham, Pa., was believed to have been killed Saturday night, said David Heckler, district attorney in Bucks County. Also that night, Egland went to St. Luke’s Hospital in Quakertown, where he tried to leave his young daughter along with a note, Heckler said. After a male nurse or orderly confronted him, he allegedly flashed a pistol, and the hospital worker called police with a description of the suspect and his black pickup truck. Just before midnight, the truck was stopped by state and local police in Doylestown Township, where he allegedly fired shots from a semi-automatic rifle, hitting a Doylestown officer in the arm and shattering a windshield that sent glass into the face of a Dublin officer. The truck was spotted around 4 a.m. Sunday in Warwick Township, and local officers spotted the suspect in the same area about an hour later and reported being fired upon. No one was hit.

Tense time at Solomon Creek Homes are spared in Wilkes-Barre, but other communities see roads inundated. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Bonnay Johnson rushed home from work Sunday morning to heed Wilkes-Barre’s evacuation order for properties along Solomon Creek. “I don’t want to cry,” Johnson said around11a.m. as she struggled to stay focused on collecting essential belongings. She and her husband, Charles, and brother, Randolph Troutman, grabbed clothing and other items from their Horton Street halfdouble and packed the car.

Wilkes-Barre Tom Leighton W-B mayor Mayor Tom Leighton lifted the evacuation order around 2:30 p.m. Leighton said he issued the order Sunday morning because the creek was rising from the pounding rain and storm water runoff from land on higher elevation that eventually drains into the creek. The creek floods homes at 17 feet and reached about 12 feet, he said. “You can never give people enough notice. We did not want to put residents in harm’s way by not giving them adequate time to prepare,” Leighton said. While the creek did not flood homes in Wilkes-Barre, it caused flooding problems for Ashley residents on East Saint Mary’s Road, which was closed for a short time Sun-

day morning, and in Hanover Township, where it inundated parts of the Sans Souci Parkway near Fellows Avenue. Several residents ignored the evacuation and said they would stay put and monitor the creek on their own. A few men turned the occasion into a celebration, sipping beer on their front porch for hours as they watched city officials and the media. They declined to be interviewed. South Franklin Street resident Tom Scully stood on his front porch around 10:30 a.m. examining the height of the creek, which runs next to the doubleblock where he’s lived for 16 years. Scully said he knows from experience that the water hadn’t reached the point of concern. “We know when to leave,” said Bob Thomas, who lives in the other half of the double. Siblings Kim Godin and Russ Brodhun were also planning to remain in their South Franklin Street apartment, located along Solomon Creek on the opposite side as Scully’s property, though they took precautions. “We got everything out of the basement,” Godin said. Tom Farrell, owner of an apartment building at the corner of Division and Brook streets, came to check on his tenants around 10 a.m. A red sports car was abandoned in a waist-high pool of water that had collected at

that intersection. Farrell and several tenants watched as the driver of a Chevrolet Cobalt ignored the barrier and tried to pass through. “Look at this genius,” Farrell said, watching the car backing out. Farrell told tenant Andy Makavensky to leave if he was instructed by emergency officials to do so, but Makavensky said he didn’t think he had to worry because he lived on the second floor. Farrell bought the building several years ago and had never experienced a flood threat to his property. “I’ve never seen it like this. It’s amazing,” Farrell said. Dump trucks hauled numerous loads of dirt to a railroad bed along Solomon Creek behind properties on Carlisle Street. Carlisle Street resident Andrew Wilson trudged through the mushy ground to see what was happening and said the truck operators were building a mini-levee to try to contain the creek. Wilson said he didn’t plan to leave but would continue to monitor the creek. He brought his laptop in case something happened to his home while he was out. Flood gates were set up on four bridges that cross the creek in the city. The gates serve as levee walls when the creek flows over the bridges. The gates on Barney and South Franklin streets were removed Sun-

More municipalities may be added as damage reports come in, Bekanich said. The unidentified man who died was from the Wilkes-Barre area. He was sleeping in a camper in the Hidden Lake Campground in Ross Township around 9:30 a.m. when a tree crashed onto the camper, officials said. “It was definitely storm-related,” said county Coroner John Corcoran, declining to release the man’s name until family members were notified. The far-reaching Irene spread rain on the region through Sunday morning. Bekanich said the emergency command center on Water Street in Wilkes-Barre started receiving reports of downed trees and power lines around 5:30 a.m. By 7 a.m., creeks were swollen. Before the time the storm was gone, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation issued an alert closing about 30 roadways, throughout the county, though many were slated to reopen Sunday night. Two interstate rest areas were closed due to power outages. Many other municipal and township streets and roads across the country were also closed because of runoff, debris and fallen trees. • One of the worst hit areas for toppled trees was the Back Mountain, with hundreds reportedly down in Jackson Township, Dallas, Dallas Township, Lehman Township and Harveys Lake.

to the evening, emergency radio frequencies buzzed with calls for assistance with trees, downed wires and flooded basements Harveys Lake resident Blake Detroy was on the couch with her beagle in her Lakeside Drive apartment when she heard a loud crack that sounded like thunder. “I looked up, and all of a sudden I see this tree coming at me,” Detroy said. Detroy clutched her dog but was frozen for a few moments, powerless to move as she waited for the tree to crash through the window. It didn’t, though the tree landed on her building, splitting into two or three sections, she said. “It’s in a precarious position. Every time the wind blows, it keeps yawning,” said Detroy, who also had no power in her home. At least eight trees fell on Bernard and Roberta Walter’s property, which is in the section of the lake called Point Breeze. None hit an occupied residence. • Ross Township Supervisor Stan Davis said Sunday afternoon that sections of about half of the roads in the township were closed because of downed trees and electrical wires or flooding of creeks and streams. Officials were waiting for UGI Utilities to

address the wires, and utility companies that serve the county were bombarded with similar requests for emergency repairs. “We’re just trying to work our way through the problems,” said Davis, who is also the township’s emergency management coordinator and assistant chief of the Sweet Valley Fire Co. Trees leaning on power lines frightened residents throughout the region. • Several houses along Hillside Road in Jackson Township were evacuated due to Huntsville Creek flooding out of its banks. Toby Creek in the morning flooded some business parking lots along its banks in Dallas and Shavertown but had receded by late afternoon. At Harveys Lake wind-driven waves roiled docks that were nearly inundated after heavy rain raised the water level. • Wilkes-Barre resident Deborah Courouklis took shelter on a neighbor’s porch after a tree crashed onto an electrical transformer in front of her home in the 400 block of South Franklin Street.

She heard a series of explosions and red flashes. “It was terrifying, just terrifying,” she said. • During the day, South Wilkes-Barre residents along Solomon Creek were evacuated to GAR High School as a precaution. The creek remained in its banks in Wilkes-Barre, but it caused flooding problems for Ashley residents on East Saint Mary’s Road, which was closed for a short time Sunday morning, and in Hanover Township, where it inundated parts of the Sans Souci Parkway near Fellows Road. The parkway was closed at Dundee Road from storm water runoff. Rick Hanley, of Nanticoke, passed through the intersection at Sans Souci Parkway and Dundee Road on his way to Gerrity’s Supermarket Sunday morning. He was inside the store for about 10 minutes and had to find an alternate route home. “I came through here a few minutes ago and I did notice a pool of water on the side of the road,” Hanley said. “I came out and the highway was shut down. The water came up that fast, I guess.” Despite the warnings, a few motorists were spotted driving around orange construction cones and through the flooded intersection. “It’s my wife’s car,” Hanley said about the Ford Focus he was driving. “I’m not going to chance it.” • Flooding also closed Division Street that borders Hanover Township and Wilkes-Barre, Schuyler Avenue and Pringle Street in Kingston, Laflin Road in Laflin and Tunkhannock Avenue in Exeter.

Storm? What storm? Tales of the normal By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

Irene might have swept away many weekend plans, but there’s one group that refused to let the storm get in the way of its event. “We’re the Cub Scouts, we don’t cancel for anything,” Crys Jennings, committee chair of Cub Scout Pack 155, said. The Scouts had a “Welcome Back, Pack” cookout and scout roundup Sunday in Trucksville, Kingston Township. It was originally scheduled to be held in the United Methodist Church pavilion, but was moved indoors. “When you already have all that food you kind of have to go with it,” Jennings said. “It worked out well because a lot of the families coming today are without power so, really, we’re feeding them dinner and giving them a place to hang out.” In the wake of heavy wind “By the and rain, many aspects of life in time I was the area were put to a stop with various road closures and pow- ready to er outages, but it seems area head to the residents were still looking to the bright side of things amidst mall the a very dark day. worst of it Several events -- like a dog wash to benefit Tracey’s Hope was done, Hospice Care Program and Res- so I figured cue for Domestic Animals Inc. -there was were canceled due to the weather.

Mary Ellen Hanson of Wilkes-Barre was still shopping at the Wyoming Valley Mall, which was open for normal Sunday business hours of 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. “If the kids need things for school, they need things for school,” she said. “By the time I was ready to head to the mall the worst of it was done, so I figured there was no harm in going.” David Abarca was riding his bike in WilkesBarre around 1 p.m., when the last of the harsh wind was kicking up debris from trees in Public Square. “It’s nice and cool now and is the perfect time for a bike ride,” he said as grey clouds swirled above him. “If it starts to rain I have an umbrella, but I think it’s going to be fine.” Joann Beck looked at it as a way to meet her Swoyersville neighbors. “The furniture in my back yard flew into theirs, and they were kind enough to help me put it back. We had a laugh over it and I helped them straighten out their yard as well. We got to know each other a bit better today.”

age during flash flooding on July 3, was flowing fast but remained in its banks. Luzerne County 911 reported “too many” calls to count for fallen trees and branches on utility wires, knocking out electrical service throughout the county. Kingston Police Chief Keith Keiper said numerous trees and branches fell onto cars and houses on Charles and Ford avenues. Several trees fell onto electrical wires along Third Avenue in Kingston reportedly having an impact on stormwater pumping stations on Third Avenue and Loveland Avenue. Wyoming Mayor Robert Boyer said a large tree fell in Butler Street Park, damaging a fence. Bekanich said the county, municipalities and utility companies will be focused on clean-up and repairs. The county will work with municipalities to prepare a damage assessment to try to obtain financial assistance from the federal government, he said. •Additional flooding shouldn’t be a problem because today’s weather forecast is a sunny 75 degrees, Bekanich said. The Susquehanna River is expected to crest at 18.2 feet today, which is below the 22-foot flood stage when the river begins to reach the low-lying areas of Plainsville and Plymouth flats. Floodprone sections of Plains Township, Plymouth Township and Shickshinny aren’t affected until the river reaches 25 feet, which isn’t expected, he said. The levee system protects Wilkes-Barre and West Side communities up to river levels of 41 feet. While power outages are inconvenient, Bekanich said he’s thankful it’s not happening in the winter. “At least it’s not cold out. Then we have to worry about rescuing people who are freezing without heat,” he said.

WYO M I N G CO U N T Y WYOMING COUNTY – Hurricane Irene’s furious wind and rain created widespread havoc here and was among 11 counties in the state Governor Tom Corbett singled out for help. “I’ve asked President Obama to declare an emergency for the Commonwealth and specifically the following counties: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Pike, Wyoming and Wayne counties," Corbett said. As of Sunday evening, Wyoming County was under a state of emergency. Hurricane Irene moved through the area Saturday evening into Sunday, dumping 3-to 6-inches of rain across the region. Mehoopany Creek was swollen with runoff and jammed with debris closing part of State Route 87 and the bridge connecting Forkston and Mehoopany Township.The heavily traveled two-lane bridge at Forkston will remain closed until the structure can be inspected and damage can be assessed, said Michael Taluto, PennDOT safety press officer. “The water is not currently rising,” Gene Dziak, Wyoming County Emergency Management coordinator, said. “There’s a lot of debris on the structure itself and the abutments are damaged.” Dziak said there are no homes near the waterway that are in danger of damage. He said properties in the area did sustain damage from the storm. Currently, there is an American Red Cross-run shelter at the Tunkhannock High School and it was reported there were 15 Forkston residents staying there due to storm damage.

TOURS PLANNED Gov. Tom Corbett plans to tour parts of northeastern Pennsylvania that suffered storm-related damage today. Congressman Lou Barletta will tour storm-damaged areas this morning.

urricane Irene swept through the area this weekend, leaving behind plenty of destruction. Northeastern Pennsylvania residents went to bed Saturday amid howling winds and pounding rain and woke up Sunday to continued howling and pounding. The combination of high winds and swollen ground caused many trees to topple onto homes and vehicles and across roadways. There were also flooded basements and yards and debris everywhere. That meant plenty of work on what normally would be a day of rest for most adults and the final day off before the start of school for children. Neighbors helped homeowners remove trees from their yards while others pumped out water from their basements. Tree crews cut down broken limbs and removed fallen branches from the roadways. Navigating through the region was often difficult as roadways were closed due to flooding. As a result, some businesses remained closed for the day. Many people were also without power hours after Irene departed; some had no idea when electricity would be restored.

High winds and rain from Irene caused this large tree to fall, crushing a minivan near the intersection of Lathrop and Westmoreland streets in Kingston on Sunday.

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. — Parishioners of Holy Family Catholic Church sang a hymn on Sunday that assumed a new resonance the day after Hurricane Irene whipped through the area: “God will protect us from darkness and death,” goes a line in “Rain Down.” “Across the street from us, a big tree came down, but it just fell right between the houses,” parishioner Jeffrey Hale said. “No damage.

New Yorkers take the storm in stride People were back on the streets, jogging, walking dogs and surveying the damage. By DAVID B. CARUSO and COLLEEN LONG Associated Press

NEW YORK — When the clouds parted, Wall Street wasn’t swamped. Coney Island’s worldfamous Cyclone roller coaster was still standing. The Empire State Building hadn’t lost a single window. And New Yorkers hardly missed a beat after Irene — a hurricane demoted to a tropical storm just before it made it to the big city — swept through Sunday morning. Just hours after an all-night, window-rattling drenching from the storm, people were back on the streets, jogging, milling around Times Square, walking dogs and surveying the damage, which consisted mostly of downed trees, power outages and neighborhood flooding. But for a while at least, “it was a fun little adventure,” said Zander Lassen, who spent the night at a boathouse in lower Manhattan babysitting beached sailboats. To be sure, there were terrifying moments: Firefighters on Staten Island rescued dozens of people trapped by floodwaters. On the Queens seashore, part of a pier collapsed and two summer bungalows were reduced to piles of timber. City officials worried saltwater would swamp lower Manhattan and damage the underground power lines that serve Wall Street, crippling the nation’s financial system. But that didn’t happen. The main stock

exchanges were set to open as scheduled today. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said there were no confirmed deaths or serious injuries. The evacuation order that covered 370,000 people across the city was lifted at 3 p.m. The New York City subway system will be up and running for the start of the work week this morning, transit officials said, but some pieces of the country’s largest transit system will remain idle while inspectors check for any damage. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority shut down all subways, buses and commuter trains Saturday in preparation for the storm. It was the first time a natural disaster ever closed the system down. On any given week day, New York City’s subways

cart about 5 million people, and commuters were left wondering how they would get to work. After the storm came and left Sunday afternoon, limited city bus service started, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo and MTA Chairman Jay Walder said subway service would start up at 6 a.m. today. They said service will be less frequent than normal and customers should expect longer waits and more crowded trains. Frequency of service will improve over the course of the day. Meanwhile, damage assessments were continuing on the MTA’a Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad, which were hit hard by flooding and mudslides. The limited bus service start-

ed up, first in Manhattan and the Bronx, then in Queens and Brooklyn. Staten Island was still on its own. Carole Ryavec, a resident of the Upper East Side, came out for a stroll through Central Park when the worst was over early Sunday afternoon. City workers were busy cleaning up fallen trees and debris. Irene — New York City’s biggest brush with tropical weather since Hurricane Gloria in1985 — weakened to a tropical storm just before blowing ashore at Brooklyn’s Coney Island around 9 a.m. It was still a big storm with winds up 65 mph, but the water did not rise as high as feared, and it receded quickly. Bob Kern, a lawyer, waited out the storm in his 26th-floor apart-

ment in Battery Park City. “I was here for 9/11, and a good friend of mine just died this week,” he said. “So I guess I just figured what will be will be. I’ve been through a lot, so I thought, ‘What else can be thrown at me?”’ He added, “I’ve been surprised how many people are walking around already. I think people are already getting back to it. I’m really, really glad and grateful things are OK.” While power was out in about 69,000 homes and businesses around the city, streets that had been all but deserted were bustling again by late afternoon. Tourists held hands and wandered through Times Square. In Brooklyn, residents came outside and used downed tree branches to clear debris from blocked sewer grates. While many New Yorkers just seemed to pick up and go on with their Sundays, some were frustrated their power was out or were steamed about being ordered to evacuate. “We left, and nothing happened,” said a miffed Denise Gomez, as she unloaded groceries and bags from the trunk of her car in Brooklyn. “We knew it wasn’t going to be anything, but we were bullied into leaving.” The city’s major landmarks were untouched. The Sept. 11 memorial in lower Manhattan didn’t suffer any significant flooding, and pieces of steel and other artifacts gathered for a planned museum were safe and dry. And a hurricane proved no match for the Cyclone, the rattling, wooden roller coaster that opened on Coney Island in 1927 and is 85 feet high. It, too, came through unscathed.

East Coast starts picking up the shattered pieces, but recovery will take days By BRUCE SMITH and TOM BREEN Associated Press

WILMINGTON, N.C. — With Irene gone, cleanup crews began pumping water out of soggy subway tunnels, fixing traffic lights in the nation’s capital and clearing debris from hundreds of roads as the East Coast readied for the workweek. While early indications were that the damage was not as bad as feared, it will be days before things get back to normal in many places. More than 4 million homes and businesses along the coast still did not have power Sunday. Roads were impassable because of high water, fallen trees and downed power lines. And while the full extent of the damage was not known, early estimates put it in the billions of dollars. Up and down the coast, the images

were the same: Siding peeled from houses; boats torn from moorings and thrown ashore; massive trees ripped from the ground; and cars submerged beneath flood waters. In the hardest-hit areas, pockets of about 20 homes were destroyed. For many, though, the storm was more inconvenience than calamity. In Ocean City, Md., Charlie Koetzle ignored evacuation orders and went to the boardwalk before dawn in his swim trunks and flip-flops, saying he always wanted to see a hurricane. Asked about damage, he mentioned a sign that blew down. Irene bruised the Caribbean and touched nearly every state on the Eastern Seaboard as it moved toward Canada. The storm brought torrential rains and powerful winds, stretching 300 miles

Garden. Flooding was widespread in Vermont, where parts of Brattleboro, Bennington and several other communities, were submerged. One woman was swept away and feared drowned in the Deerfield River. Meanwhile, the nation’s most populous region looked to a new week and the arduous process of getting back to normal. New York lifted its evacuation order for 370,000 people. “All in all,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, “we are in pretty good shape.” At least 21 people died in the storm, most of them when trees crashed through roofs or onto cars. The main New York power company, Consolidated Edison, didn’t have to go through with a plan to cut electricity to lower Manhattan to protect its equipment. Engineers had worried that salty seawater would damage the wiring. And two pillars of the neighborhood came through the storm just fine: The New York Stock Exchange said it would be open for business today, and the Sept. 11 memorial at the World Trade Center site didn’t lose a single tree. The center of Irene passed over Central Park at midmorning with the storm packing 65 mph winds. By evening, with its giant figuresix shape brushing over New England and drifting east, it was

from the center at one point. Irene made landfall in the U.S. on Saturday morning over North Carolina as a Category 1 hurricane. By Sunday, it was reduced to a tropical storm near New York. In the Northeast, flooding was still a major threat after a rainy August soaked the ground. Rivers swelled over banks, and forecasters warned it could be days before rivers crest as runoff makes its way into creeks and streams. Flood waters were rising across New Jersey, closing side streets and major highways including the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate 295.

down to 50 mph. It was expected to drift into Canada later Sunday or early today. “Just another storm,” said Scott Beller, who was at a Lowe’s hardware store in the Long Island hamlet of Centereach, looking for a generator because his power was out. The Northeast was spared the urban nightmare some had worried about — crippled infrastructure, stranded people and windows blown out of skyscrapers. Early assessments showed “it wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said. Later in the day, the extent of the damage became clearer. Flood waters were rising across New Jersey, closing side streets and major highways including the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate 295. In Essex County, authorities used a five-ton truck to ferry people away from their homes as the Passaic River neared its expected crest Sunday night. Twenty homes on Long Island Sound in Connecticut were destroyed by churning surf. The

torrential rain chased hundreds of people in upstate New York from their homes and washed out 137 miles of the state’s main highway. In Massachusetts, the National Guard had to help people evacuate. The ski resort town of Wilmington, Vt., was flooded, but nobody could get to it because both state roads leading there were underwater. “This is the worst I’ve ever seen in Vermont,” said Mike O’Neil, the state emergency management director. Rivers roared in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In the Hudson Valley town of New Paltz, N.Y., so many people were gathering to watch a rising river that authorities banned alcohol sales and ordered people inside. And in Rhode Island, which has a geography thick with bays, inlets and shoreline, authorities were worried about coastal flooding at evening high tide. The entire Northeast has been drenched this summer with what has seemed like relentless rain, saturating the ground and raising the risk of flooding, even after the storm passes altogether.

evacuate from low-lying areas. The commute this morning into Manhattan and Washington promised to be a headache. It wasn’t clear when the New York subways — which carry 5 million people on an average weekday — would be running again after an unprecedented shutdown. And in Washington, the Metro was running but outages knocked more than 150 stoplights out in the Baltimore-Washington area. There was so much confusion that Maryland State Police declared it the most serious hazard of the day. Irene brought six inches to a foot of rain to many places along the East Coast. Along the shore of Long Island Sound in East Haven, Conn., 20 homes were destroyed by the Irene’s surf, many reduced to a pile of rubble.

The storm system knocked out power for 41⁄2 million people along the Eastern Seaboard. Power companies were picking through uprooted trees and reconnecting lines in the South and had restored electricity to hundreds of thousands of people by Sunday afternoon. With the worst of the storm over, hurricane experts assessed the preparations and concluded that, far from hyping the danger, authorities had done the right thing by being cautious. In the storm’s wake, hundreds of thousands of passengers still had to get where they were going. Airlines said about 9,000 flights were canceled. Officials said the three major New York-area airports will resume most flights this morning. Philadelphia International Airport reopened Sunday afternoon, and flights resumed around Washington, which took a glancing blow from the storm. One of two nuclear reactors at Calvert Cliffs, Md., automatically went offline because of high winds. Constellation Energy Nuclear Group said the plant was safe. The casinos of Atlantic City, N.J., planned to reopen today at noon after state officials checked the integrity of the games, made sure the surveillance cameras work, and brought cash back into the cages under state supervision. All 11 casinos shut down for the storm, only the third time that has happened. In Philadelphia, the storm was blamed for the collapses of seven buildings, but no one was hurt and everyone was accounted for.

Irene kills 21 people in deadly coast path Four storm-related deaths occur in Pennsylvania, with one in Luzerne County. The Associated Press

Hurricane Irene had led to the deaths of at least 21 people in eight states as of Sunday evening. Here are the ones from the Northeast.: CONNECTICUT: • In Prospect, one person was killed in a fire that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said was apparently caused by wires knocked down by the storm. NEW JERSEY • Celena Sylvestri, 20, of Quinton, called her boyfriend and then 911 early Sunday seeking help getting out of her flooded car in Pilesgrove, police said. Her body was found eight hours later in the vehicle, which was about 150 feet off the road, police said. NEW YORK • A man in his 50s was electrocuted in Spring Valley when he tried to help a child who had gone into a flooded street with downed wires. The child was in very serious condition at Westchester Medical Center’s burn unit, said a spokesman for the Rockland County Emergency Operations Center. • State police said they recovered the body of a woman who apparently drowned after she fell into Onesquethaw Creek in New Scotland, near Albany. PENNSYLVANIA • Michael Scerarko, 44, was killed Sunday when a tree fell on him in his yard. Scerarko, of Stroudsburg, pushed his son out of the way, but could not get out of the way himself, police said. • A 58-year-old Harrisburg man was killed Sunday morning when a tree toppled onto his tent, state police said. The man was one of about 20 people at a party on private property in East Hanover Township, Dauphin County, some of whom who decided to sleep outside. • A man in a camper was crushed by a tree in northeastern Pennsylvania’s Luzerne County, state emergency management officials said. Police found his body shortly before 11 a.m. Sunday. • A motorist was killed when he lost control of his car on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Carbon County, skidded over an embankment and hit a tree.

hether a hurricane or a tropical storm, Irene’s high winds and heavy rains caused plenty of destruction on the East Coast, from some southern states through the Mid-Atlantic region and up into New England. While early indications were that the damage was not as bad as feared, it will be days before things get back to normal in many places. More than 4 million homes and businesses along the coast still did not have power Sunday. Roads were impassable because of high water, fallen trees and downed power lines.

WORLD OPINION

Victory by Libyan rebels strengthens Arab Spring

W

ITH THE overrunning of Moammar Gadhafi’s compound in Tripoli, the Libyan rebels’ victory looks irreversible. There are pockets of pro-Gadhafi resistance elsewhere, notably around the tyrant’s home town of Sirte. But last week the attention already was shifting to what comes after the battle for Tripoli. So far, the rebels have shown restraint in exacting revenge against regime loyalists. Such disorder is difficult for the National Transitional Council to control without any machinery of government. Yet it must move toward a position of being able to impose such authority as quickly as possible. The West

can help with advisers and by unfreezing around $1.5 billion of Libyan state assets in Europe and the United States as soon as Gadhafi’s henchmen are properly isolated. The ripples from this remarkable victory will spread far beyond Libya. As the Arab Spring stretches toward autumn, the position of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad looks shakier than ever. Libya’s revolution should hearten the activists in Tunisia and Egypt, now trying to build democracies from the ruins of authoritarian regimes. It should strengthen the hand of democracy activists living under other such regimes from Morocco to Saudi Arabia too. London Evening Standard

QUOTE OF THE DAY “This whole back-to-school push is a good time for parents to think about their kids in terms of what vaccines are recommended.” Dr. Melinda Wharton The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention specialist urged parents of tweens and teens to make sure immunizations are up-to-date.

Focus shifts to Syria

W

ITH THE CRISIS in Libya drawing to an end, it is no surprise that eyes are now on Syria. The west Asian country has experienced similar turbulence since mid-March, and there is much speculation that the victory of the Libyan opposition will very likely fuel antigovernment protests in Syria, which will in turn escalate tensions in the region and prompt Western powers to take more drastic moves. The United States and European countries have intensified sanctions against Syria and called for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down. They also have tried to seek a resolution condemning the alAssad regime in the United

Nations. All these moves, which look similar to those taken by the West before they waged military intervention against Libya, have aroused concern that Syria might soon face the same fate as Libya. If this becomes a reality, the region will only plunge deeper into the whirlwind of prolonged unrest. The international community should bear in mind that the situation in Syria is different from that in Libya. An important country in the Middle East, Syria has a significant role to play in the region’s overall stability and security. It is counted as a major player in the regional peace process too.

MALLARD FILLMORE

THESE DAYS, the smartest thing candidates for political office can do is couple the announcement that they’re going to run with a detailed confession of all sins, large and small, that they’ve committed, tried to commit, fantasized about or heard described on a commuter flight to El Paso. The search for the pointless personal smear is out of hand, and the only way to disarm it is with the pre-emptive strike of complete transparency. Earlier this month a Texas alternative newspaper, the Austin Chronicle, ran an advertisement asking anyone, male or female, who has ever had sex with Texas governor and GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry to step forward. The message was paid for by Robert Morrow, a Ron Paul supporter so deep into conspiracy theories he believes former President George H.W. Bush was responsible for the assassination of John F. Kennedy. So now Perry, who should be plenty busy explaining why he thinks it would be OK for Texas to secede from the United States, why he doesn’t believe in evolution and how he went from being the Texas chair of Al Gore’s presidential campaign in 1988 to a conservative so testosterone-addled he’s like a Tasmanian devil in a suit, will instead be defending his personal life.

Parenting should rest in hands of actual parents

M

ost of us probably think the “kids for cash” judge, Mark Ciavarella, is just a terrible person. I can think of a few parents who cried with him and their child in his chambers. The parents were practically begging him to do something because their child was going down the wrong road and they didn’t know what to do. The judge made a decision to handle the discipline, like many of our police officers do, and he gets 28 years in jail. A parent calls 911 when Johnny won’t go to school, or when Susie comes home smelling of booze and pot. Congratulations! The parents have introduced their troublesome child to law enforcement. If arrested, the child now has a record. Great job! As I was growing up in the ’70s, a Children and Youth agency was only an idea. When I got out of line, let’s just say dad didn’t put me in a time-out chair or make me stand in the corner to get his point across. I’m sure many men and women reading this can relate. Discipline wasn’t handled by the police, judges or a government-created agency. Discipline was handled by the “man of the house.”

Thanks to government, we have the “pansy of the house,” and the children dictate what the parents do on a daily basis. Government has made it a crime for a parent to discipline a child. If a parent disciplines with a smack on the butt in the grocery store, some knucklehead with a cell phone is dialing 911 to report a child abuse case. An embarrassing visit from Children and Youth follows. Want to cut something from the budget? Leave parenting up to the parents and allow the government to care for foster children who might not have someone to care for them, as it was intended. Or doesn’t this qualify as a kids-for-cash scheme? Because as I see it, the whole system is “kids for cash.” Ask yourself this: Who pays the fine,

Federal milk act could solve farmers’ concerns

airy farmers, do you want a pricing formula that covers your cost? For years, some of us have been pounding away for the need for a raw milk pricing formula that would cover the dairy farmers’ cost of production. I can remember back in the 1970s and early ’80s when the former Eastern Milk Producers Dairy Co-op urged such a formula, plus a reasonable supply-management program. At that time, Eastern witnessed the same type of opposition that we see today. There is a proposal out there that will allow farmers the opportunity to cover their costs of production.

Sand bar will serve up fun at local restaurant By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

BUTLER TWP. -- Damenti’s Restaurant proprietor Kevin McDonald is a showman at heart and that showmanship is on display at the Roman Holiday Sand Bar on display at the well-known eatery’s tree shaded grounds. “We brought in tons of pristine beach sand,” said McDonald. “Our artists sculpted a dynamic exhibit around a Roman theme.” The Romans were a fun-loving group of people, McDonald said, and “I want my customers to have fun here.” McDonald says he plans to contract local artists, skilled in the mediums sand, wood, ice and metal to perform live demonstrations of their particular craft on a weekly basis. “I’ve been planning this for five years,” McDonald said. “I’ve always been sort of a patron of the arts. And who, may I ask, is more deserving than starving artists?” McDonald said he intends to give each artist an excellent

meal, prepared by his renowned culinary staff, as well as a fair wage in exchange for their participation. “My wife says it is my little economic stimulus plan,” joked McDonald. The sand bar display and demonstration will be held every Friday from 7-11 p.m., rain or shine, accompanied by live music with additional performances on Sunday. Damenti’s plans to hold its annual Ice Sculpting display beginning in December with this year’s theme echoing China’s “Year of the Dragon.” “The actual bar will be an elaborately carved dragon with an intricate tail and dorsal,” he added. McDonald explained that with the recent economic downturn, he had to develop some creative marketing ideas like ice sculpting and sand display to get people onto the property. “I’m hosting my third generation of customers, so I must be doing something right,” said McDonald.

Misericordia program looks back at attack The 9/11 program includes an interactive roundtable hosted by Keith Martin.

By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS -- The Misericordia University Government, Law and National Security Program will host a conference titled, “9/ 11: Freedom, Security, and Life in America 10 Years Later” on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall. The event will feature a number of National Security experts who will focus on America’s preparedness to deal with acts of terrorism and natural disasters, a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The program will also include an interactive roundtable hosted by Keith Martin, former Director of Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security under Governor Ed Rendell. Martin is well known in the area from his time as news anchor at television stations WBRE in WilkesBarre and WDAU in Scranton. “We learned a lot from 9/11,” said Brian Carso, Director of the Misericordia program. “And we need to continue to build on the things we learned.” Misericordia’s program offers a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree to students interested in pursuing careers in National Security. Carso stressed that the United States must strive to provide for the collective national secu-

rity without compromising individual freedom. “It’s a balancing act. People have differing opinions about security and free-

dom.” Carso said wiretapping and “data mining” were effective as counter-terrorism tools but controversial due to their perceived infringement on individual privacy. According to Carso, due to a renewed national commitment, the country is much better prepared to deal with natural disasters since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast on 2005. “On my way home from campus today, I saw a caravan of first responder vehicles headed to staging areas in preparation for Hurricane Irene,” said Carso. “That’s definitely a sign that we’re changing our perspective.” The conference will feature a video presentation of the documentary, “I’ll always Remember,” which offers a moving retrospective of the events of 9/11. An open discussion will follow the screening. “The state of our national security is constantly evolving for the better,” Carso said.

‘The Help’ once again captures No. 1 spot at weekend box office By AMY KAUFMAN Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — “The Help” continued to surge at the box office this weekend, but Hurricane Irene still did some serious damage to overall movie attendance. Upon its debut in early August, the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s popular novel opened behind “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” but the film has since worked its way into the No. 1 spot at the box office for two consecutive weekends. In the film’s third weekend of release, the movie about civil rights in 1960s Mississippi grossed an additional $14.3 million, according to an estimate from distributor Walt Disney Studios. The film’s current total now stands at an impressive $96.6 million. Meanwhile, overall box office was in need of some aid, as bad weather plagued the East Coast and about a thousand movie theaters closed their doors at some point during the weekend. Largely because of Irene, it was one of the slowest moviegoing weekends this year, with ticket sales down roughly 23 percent compared with the same weekend in 2010. Three new movies struggled to do business, with action flick “Colombiana” faring the best. The movie starring Zoe Saldana brought in a soft $10.3 million, while the horror film “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” could scare up only a lackluster $8.7 million. And there wasn’t much to laugh about for “Our Idiot Brother,” an R-rated comedy that collected a weak $6.6 million in ticket sales. “Not only were there closures programs in other schools, and with full support of the Sisters of Mercy and University President Michael MacDowell, opened a home for up to six mothers with up to two children each. The program expanded with a second home, and current program director Vicki Austin, a transplant from Toledo, Ohio, said they are looking into setting up a third. “The children and mother

due to the weather, but people were just not leaving their homes,” said Rory Bruer, distribution president for Sony, which released “Colombiana.” “I’d say business was off upward of 20 percent.” As of Saturday evening, AMC had closed all its theaters in New York, Virginia, Philadelphia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Clearview Cinemas shut down all of its 57 locations between New York and Philadelphia on Saturday and Sunday, and Regal Cinemas also closed its doors in a number of cities. Cinemark, the nation’s third-largest theater chain, did not have any of its cinema hours affected by the hurricane. Of the three new films that opened this weekend, “Colombiana” received the worst critical reviews, garnering a lowly 34 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Still, the movie, about an assassin attempting to avenge her parents’ murders, was given a better average grade by audiences than either of the weekend’s other two debuts — an A-minus, according to market research firm CinemaScore. Although action films traditionally attract a younger male audience, older females were the ones most interested in seeing “Colombiana.” The crowd that showed up to see the movie was 57 percent female, and 65 percent older than 25. “I think that had something to do with Zoe Saldana playing a strong woman who really just kicks (butt) and takes names later, so to speak,” Bruer said of the female audience contingent. The movie was financed by live in a community,” Austin said. “They get two rooms for themselves and their children, everything else is common” to the community. The arrangement presents challenges, because different parents have different ways of doing things. But the children tend to bond, with older children often mentoring newer ones. In fact, when the program had its

EuropaCorp. — the French movie studio co-founded by Luc Besson, who wrote and produced the movie — but is being distributed in the U.S. and Latin America by Sony. “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” also played well with females, but younger ones, as well as African Americans and Latinos. That’s part of what ultimately hurt the film’s overall weekend gross, said Bob Berney, president of theatrical distribution for FilmDistrict, which released the movie in the U.S. “Our movie definitely relied on large urban markets, and that was tough because many of the theaters in those areas closed after Friday,” said Berney, whose company acquired the film — made years ago for $25 million by the then-Walt Disney Co.-owned Miramax Films label — when the specialty film division was closed in 2009. But even after the weather clears up, “Don’t Be Afraid of

the Dark” might have trouble luring in moviegoers. The film, produced and written by Guillermo del Toro about a young girl who learns terrifying creatures are living in her house, was given a dismal average grade of C-minus by those who saw it — which even Berney admitted was “not good.” That was only slightly worse than the C-plus grade “Our Idiot Brother” received from audiences. The film appealed mostly to an older crowd, as 70 percent of the audience was over the age of 25. “That older audience is less likely to venture out in a storm, whereas when you’re younger, that 18-to-24 crowd is feeling the invincibility of ’Let’s go find out what’s happening.’ We got hurt by that,” said Erik Lomis, president of theatrical distribution and home entertainment for the Weinstein Co. — which distributed the film — attempting to explain the film’s poor performance.

first graduate, the student’s daughter had a hard time. ”She was leaving these children she had spent four years with,” Austin said. The program continues to survive on donations, grants and support from the university, but it is building an endowment. “The goal is $2 million,” Austin said, “We hope to reach that by 2013. With luck, the Sept. 10 dinner, set for 7 p.m. at Mohegan

Sun at Pocono Downs, will raise as much as $25,000 for the program, Austin said. Holding an event to commemorate both the founding of the Sisters of Mercy and the Women With Children Program makes sense because the program so closely reflects what the order is about. “There is no Sister of Mercy who isn’t willing to get down in the real world, doing real work,” Austin said.

Rough night for drivers on bubble Paul Menard one of several drivers fighting for spot in Chase to falter in Bristol. By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

BRISTOL, Tenn. — It didn’t take long for Paul Menard’s race to go awry at Bristol Motor Speedway. Flagged for speeding on pit road a mere 34 laps into Saturday night’s race, the penalty set the tone for a disappointing night for Menard and a handful of other drivers trying desperately to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup Menard championship. “Man, we’re giving it away right now for sure,” said Menard. “Just a bad night. Frustrating. If there is something that could have gone wrong, it did.” Menard, who also ran into the back of Denny Hamlin as the two tried to avoid a wreck in front of them, finished 30th and dropped two spots in the standings to 20th. It’s a nightmare slide for a driver who just one month ago earned a breakthrough victory at See NASCAR, Page 5B

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT — An American flag draped around his shoulders, Braydon Salzman couldn’t contain his glee when he found California teammate Nick Pratto to give him a postgame hug.

USA,” yelled fans before Pratto’s single. “I was just thinking. ’Oh God, Oh God,’ Before I was getting in the box,” the 12-year-old Pratto said. “But once I got into the box, I calmed myself by telling myself to just look for a good pitch.” Pratto’s clutch hit returned the World Series title to the

United States with the type of victory even the big leaguers dream about. A U.S. team has now won six out of the last seven World Series, with Japan’s win last year the exception. Pratto tossed his helmet into the air after rounding first before his teammates mobbed him in the infield. The teams exchanged handshakes at the plate before California’s giddy players posed at the mound with their new championship banner. “My team is physically smaller than most of the teams. We didn’t think we would get to this

stage,” Japan manager Akihiro Suzuki, who fought back tears after the game, said through interpreter Kotaro Omori. “All of the players did such a wonderful job to get to this stage.” With runners on first and second, an error by Japan shortstop Gaishi Iguchi on what could have been an inning-ending double play loaded the bases for California. After a force play at the plate, Pratto smacked a solid liner to center off reliever Kazuto Takakura that brought pinch-runner Eric Anderson home with the winning run.

Federer’s chance for major in ’11 By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

NEW YORK — First came the end of Roger Federer’s remarkable run of reaching a record 10 consecutive Grand Slam finals. Then he failed to make it to a major semifinal after a record 23 in a row. The U.S. Open marks Federer’s last chance to prevent the close of another streak: In each season from 2003-10, he won at least one Grand Slam title — and sometimes as many as three. He’s 0-for-2011 heading into the year’s last major tournament, where play is scheduled to begin today morning, after what the U.S. Tennis Association said was “minimal damage” to the site over the weekend from Tropical Storm Irene. This U.S. Open also is Federer’s first major tournament since he turned 30 on Aug. 8. That age tends to represent a barrier to success in tennis: Of the past 100 Grand Slam titles, only five were won by a man past his 30th birthday. The last to do it was Andre Agassi at the 2003 Australian Open.

OPINION

TIM DAHLBERG

Miami president promises ‘to find truth’ about accusations. CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Miami President Donna Shalala said it’s been “quite painful” dealing with the scandal that could blacken the name of the university’s athletic department for years to come. The NCAA and the school are investigating whether the athletic department, including 15 current student-athletes, broke Shalala rules in their dealings with convicted Ponzi scheme architect and former booster Nevin Shapiro. A person with knowledge of the process told The Associated Press last week that eight football players have been declared ineligible, though the school remains hopeful they will soon be reinstated by the NCAA. “These past two weeks have been quite painful for me,” Shalala wrote in a letter published in Sunday’s editions of The Miami Herald. “It is way too early to know all of the details ... but the allegations alone cause serious concerns.” She added: “Here’s my commitment: I will do, and we will do, everything possible to find the truth, learn from any mistakes and take measures to prevent any such behavior from happening again.” While the university first be-

Federer lost in the semifinals to Novak Djokovic. For his career, Federer is 22333 in Grand Slam matches, an .871 winning percentage. He can tie Agassi for the secondmost victories at majors — Jimmy Connors retired with 233 — by beating 54thranked Santiago Giraldo of Colombia (who, for the record, is 2-10 in Grand Slam play) today. They’re slated to play their first-round match in Arthur Ashe Stadium at night, after seventime major champion Venus Williams meets Vesna Dolonts of Russia. Other matches on the Day 1 schedule include 2006 U.S. Open champion Maria Sharapova against Heather Watson of Britain; reigning Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova against Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania; 2010 U.S. Open runner-up Vera Zvonareva against Stephanie Foretz Gacon of France; 19-yearold American Ryan Harrison against No. 27-seeded Marin Cil-

Federer, though, said that his age hasn’t affected his expectations. “Hasn’t changed anything. I’m still as professional. I’m still as hungry. Everything’s still completely normal,” he explained. “It’s just a number that’s changed. I’m ready to go.” His resume is filled with some rather impressive numbers, including a total of 16 Grand Slam titles and five consecutive U.S. Open championships from 200408, before his 40-match winning streak at Flushing Meadows ended in the 2009 final against Juan Martin del Potro.

It features complete coverage of the Nittany Lions, including positionby-position breakdowns, features on quarterbacks Matt McGloin and Rob Bolden, a special look back at the 1986 national championship team and much more.

The season began horribly, with the savage beating of a man at Dodger Stadium simply because he was wearing the other team’s jersey. Midway through, there was unspeakable tragedy in Texas when a man sitting with his young son died while trying to catch a ball tossed his way. The game’s biggest slugger went on trial and was convicted of charges related to his use of steroids. One of the greatest pitchers ever also had his day in court, though prosecutors may have struck out in their efforts to show Roger Clemens lied about steroids himself. Two of the sport’s premier franchises are in serious trouble, threatened by the greed of their owners. Things are so bad in Los Angeles that fans are staging protests against the ownership, and the lure of $1 Dodger Dogs isn’t enough to fill even the cheap seats in the team’s iconic stadium. On Saturday night, though, it was standing-room only as 44,091 packed into Milwaukee’s stadium to watch the smallmarket Brewers beat the Cubs once again. In recent weeks, two players gained admittance to exclusive clubs reserved for the game’s best, and fans are starting to believe that not everybody who plays the game is juiced. Yes, baseball can sometimes look like a punch-drunk fighter, staggering from one crisis to another. But the sport is nothing if not remarkably resilient. With a month to go in a regular season that has had more than its share of sour notes, you might even say that baseball is thriving. Commissioner Bud Selig did the other day and sounded almost believable, though he’s said a lot of things over the years that have nothing to do with reality. In this case, though, maybe it’s time to give him the benefit of the doubt. “I really think the last three years, given everything that’s gone on, baseball has really, really proven its popularity,” Selig said. Judging from attendance alone, Selig may be right. Parents are still taking their kids to the ballpark in respectable numbers and even fan apathy in Los Angeles hasn’t stopped attendance from rising slightly overall in the major leagues this season. They come despite being weary from years of steroid scandals. They come even when the price of taking a family of four to a ballgame edges close to a monthly car payment. They keep coming because they love baseball, even if a game between the Yankees and Red Sox lasts longer than some cricket matches. It’s not as if this season hasn’t had its moments. Derek Jeter becoming the first Yankee to make the 3,000-hit club was certainly worth of celebration in New York, while Jim Thome hitting his 600th home run was cause to celebrate, too, even if no one did. The Pirates were a great story while they lasted, the Phillies have a pitching staff for the ages, and there’s a lefty in Los Angeles who draws comparisons with Sandy Koufax himself. New ownership in Chicago hasn’t made the Cubs any better quite yet, but fans at Wrigley can’t help but feel there may be better days ahead. The best news this week won’t help the Dodgers make the playoffs, but it certainly See DAHLBERG, Page 5B

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Yankees, Orioles settle for split The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Curtis Granderson homered twice to take over the major league lead with 38, rookie Ivan Nova won his 10th straight decision, and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-3 Sunday night for a split of a day-night doubleheader. Granderson hit a three-run drive in the third inning and a solo shot in the seventh. He moved past Jose Bautista, who has 37 homers, and assumed the major league lead in RBIs with 107. In the first game, rookie Zach Britton allowed four hits over seven innings to lead the Orioles to a 2-0 victory. It was Deter Jeter’s 2,402nd game with New York, breaking a tie with Mickey Mantle for most in a Yankees uniform. But Jeter fouled a ball off his right knee in the third inning, and although he shook off the pain to finish the game, the Yankees captain was a late scratch in the nightcap with a bruised knee. The second game was tied at 3 before New York hit three straight homers in a four-run sixth. After Robinson Cano connected with a man on, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones also went deep. It was the first time the Yankees hit three successive homers since May 20, 2009, against Baltimore. Rays 12, Blue Jays 0

TORONTO — David Price struck out a franchise-record 14 in seven dominant innings, Desmond Jennings hit a pair of solo home runs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays. Price improved to 9-1 with a 1.99 ERA in 11 career starts

against Toronto. The Blue Jays lost their fourth straight overall. Twins 11, Tigers 4

MINNEAPOLIS — Luke Hughes hit two home runs to help the Minnesota Twins take out their hitting frustration on Brad Penny and the Detroit Tigers, stopping a seven-game losing streak. Rangers 9 Angels 5.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Josh Hamilton broke out of a slump with a long two-run homer and the tiebreaking RBI single for the AL Westleading Texas Rangers, who rallied for a victory over the chasing Los Angeles Angels. Hamilton’s homer in the third off Jered Weaver tied the game at 4, and his single in the seventh put the Rangers ahead 6-5. The reigning AL MVP had been 3 for 21 on the homestand without an RBI the past four games. White Sox 9, Mariners 3

SEATTLE — Dayan Viciedo made a sudden impact in his return to the majors, hitting a three-run homer in his season debut as the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners for a sweep. Tyler Flowers connected for his first career grand slam, helping Gavin Floyd (12-10) cruise to victory. Viciedo was called up from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday when the White Sox placed outfielder Carlos Quentin on the 15-day disabled list. Royals 2, Indians 1

CLEVELAND — Bruce Chen overcame a shaky first inning to win his career-high fifth straight start and led the Kansas City Royals over the Cleveland Indians.

Greinke, Hart help Brewers defeat Cubs The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — Zack Greinke pitched effectively into the eighth to remain perfect at home, Corey Hart homered for the second time in as many days and the Milwaukee Brewers swept the Chicago Cubs with a 3-2 win on Sunday. Greinke (13-5) improved to 10-0 at Miller Park and didn’t allow a hit until Marlon Byrd’s fifth-inning bloop. In the bottom of the inning, Greinke singled, stole a base for the first time in his career and scored on Hart’s blast. Greinke struck out seven, scattering four hits and two walks. Diamondbacks 6, Padres 1

PHOENIX — Ian Kennedy pitched seven effective innings to become the National League’s first 17-game winner, Collin Cowgill hit his first career homer during a four-hit game and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres for their sixth straight victory. Cowgill hit a solo shot off Cory Luebke (5-7) in the second inning and added a runscoring double off Erik Hamren in the eighth. Aaron Hill also homered off Luebke, his first since being traded to Arizona, and had three RBIs. Astros 4, Giants 3

SAN FRANCISCO — Matt Downs delivered a go-ahead single with one out in the 11th inning and the Houston Astros beat the stumbling San Francisco Giants to salvage a fourgame split. Jose Altuve got things going

with a one-out double against Ramon Ramirez (2-3) and Downs followed with a single up the middle. Altuve was forced into action after slugger Carlos Lee left in the top of the ninth with a sprained right ankle sustained sliding into second on a double. Reds 5, Nationals 4

CINCINNATI — Joey Votto led off the 14th inning with his second home run of the game, lifting the Cincinnati Reds over the Washington Nationals. Reds pinch-hitter Yonder Alonso opened the ninth with a home run off Drew Storen, making it 4-all. Votto hit a full-count pitch from Collin Balester (1-3) into the left-field bleachers to push the Reds over .500 for the first time since July 3. Cardinals 7, Pirates 4

ST. LOUIS — Kyle Lohse went a workmanlike five innings for his 100th career win and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates. Lohse (12-8) gave up four runs, two of them earned. He allowed six hits, struck out four and walked two. Rockies 7, Dodgers 6

LOS ANGELES — Kevin Kouzmanoff drove in his first four runs since joining Colorado this week, and the Rockies needed five relievers to hold off the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kouzmanoff blooped a threerun double in the first inning as Colorado took a 5-0 lead. He later singled home a run, and the six-year veteran tied a career high with four RBIs.

Kiner had 16 homers in September of 1949. Mays hi a tape measure shot off Jack Fisher. 1967 Bert Campaneris of the Kansas City A’s hit three triples in a 9-8, 10-inning loss to the Cleveland Indians. 1971 Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves knocked in his 100th run of the season, giving him the National League record of 11 seasons with 100 or more RBIs. 1977 Lou Brock stole base No. 893, breaking Ty Cobb’s modern record for career stolen bases. 1985 Don Baylor of the New York Yankees set an American League record when he was hit by a pitch for the 190th time in his career. Baylor was struck by California Angels pitcher Kirk McCaskill in the first inning, breaking the old mark of 189 set by Minnie Minoso. 1993 George Brett recorded his 200th stolen base in Kansas City’s 5-4, 12-inning victory over Boston to join Willie Mays and Hank Aaron as the only players with 3,000 hits, 300 homers and 200 steals. 1995 Pittsburgh’s Paul Wagner, the NL leader in losses, lost his no-hitter against Colorado on an infield single with two out in ninth. 2000 Anaheim’s Darin Erstad went 3-for-5 to reach 200 hits faster than any player in 65 years as the Angels defeated Toronto 9-4. Ducky Medwick of the St. Louis Cardinals did it in 131 games in 1935. 2002 Mark Bellhorn became the first player in NL history to hit a home run in the same inning from both sides of the plate, in the fourth of the Chicago Cubs’ 13-10 win over Milwaukee. 2004 Albert Pujols hit his 40th home run and reached 100 RBIs for the fourth straight season to help St. Louis beat Pittsburgh 4-0. He’s the fourth player to start his major league career with four straight seasons with at least 100 RBIs, joining Hall of Famers Al Simmons, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams. 2010 Brian McCann hit a game-winning homer with help from video replay, giving the Atlanta Braves a stunning 7-6 victory over the Florida Marlins.

TRACK AND FIELD

Bolt false starts, is eliminated in 100

DAEGU, South Korea — Usain Bolt again did the unbelievable when it mattered most in the 100 meters. This time, no gold medal or world record, but a false start and straight elimination from the world championships in a race he regally reigned for three years. In a stunning few seconds, Bolt’s showboating turned into real-life despair when he jumped the gun and was led away from the track before compatriot Yohan Blake won gold ahead of Walter Dix. GOLF

Kraft beats UCLA star in Amateur final

ERIN, Wis. — Kelly Kraft took the lead when Patrick Cantlay bogeyed the 16th hole, then hung on to win the U.S. Amateur championship at Erin Hills on Sunday. Kraft is an accomplished college golfer who just finished his senior season at SMU, but he definitely was the lesserknown player in the final. Cantlay, a star at UCLA, is the world’s No. 1-ranked amateur and is considered a rising star with a promising future in the professional ranks. That didn’t matter Sunday, as Kraft took home the trophy. Both U.S. finalists receive a spot next year’s U.S. Open, and both traditionally are invited to The Masters. As the winner, Kraft also gets a spot in the British Open. BASKETBALL

Key Olympic qualifiers start this week

Perennial world basketball powers Spain and Argentina can lock up spots in the 2012 Olympics through regional qualifying tournaments that begin this week. Two spots are available in EuroBasket and another pair in the FIBA Americas tournament. The winner and runner-up in each event will clinch berths in London next July. Three teams have also secured their places in the 12-team field. The defending Olympic champion U.S. was the first by winning the world championship last summer in Turkey. Britain later was awarded an automatic berth by FIBA, basketball’s world governing body, as the Olympic host, and Tunisia became the first surprise team by knocking off Angola on Sunday to win the African title. CYCLING

Leipheimer wins USA Pro Challenge

DENVER, Colo. — American Levi Leipheimer won the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and his third stage race title this year with a seventh-place finish in Sunday’s sixth stage. “The victory means so much to me, mainly because of the way we raced,” said Leipheimer, who earlier this month won the six-day Tour of Utah and in June won the nine-day Tour of Switzerland, the biggest win of his 15-year pro career. “It took some of the best form of my life to beat Christian and Tejay. I took the (leader’s) jersey, I lost the jersey. I had to race one of the best time trial of my life to get it back and keep it. It took every ounces of energy I had.” Daniel Oss, who rides for the Italian Liquigas team, won the 70.9-mile final stage of the 518mile inaugural event in 2 hours, 27 minutes, 8 seconds. Leipheimer, a Montana native who lives in Santa Rosa, Calif. and competes for RadioShack, assumed his second race lead with a slim victory in the stage 3 time trial and led the race for five of its seven days. Christian Vande Velde finished second overall, trailing by 11 seconds and Tejay Van Garderen finished third, 17 seconds behind. Elia Viviani of Italy, victorious in stages 4 and 5, was second in the finale. American Fred Rodriguez, a former three-time national road champion, was third. -- The Associated Press

came aware of some of Shapiro’s allegations about a year ago, the story broke widely Aug. 16 when Yahoo Sports published more claims from Shapiro. Now imprisoned, he said he provided extra benefits — mainly cash, cars, gifts and sexual hookups — for 72 football players, some while they were being recruited. Of that number, 65 are former or current Miami players, while seven signed with other schools. He also implicated 10 coaches, none of whom are still at the school, and one current men’s basketball player. Shapiro, 42, is serving a 20year prison sentence for masterminding what federal prosecutors called a $930 million investment scam. Football coach Al Golden said the school asked the NCAA to begin a reinstatement process. Miami opens its season at Maryland on Sept. 5. Shalala said athletic director Shawn Eichorst is reviewing Miami’s policies and procedures relating to compliance, and that rules changes were possible. “If we do all this right — and we will — we will take the necessary actions to make sure we have the most compliant program possible,” Shalala wrote. “If we do this right — and we will — we will move on stronger and be better prepared for the future.” The letter marks the third time Shalala has issued a statement about the scandal. Aside from one interview with student media at the university, she hasn’t been available for questions. “We have committed to the NCAA every possible resource to get to the bottom of all this,” Shalala wrote. “We promised the NCAA we would not comment on any specifics until the investigation runs its course. We continue to honor that commitment.” Many of the players implicated by Shapiro’s claims addressed the matter for the first time Saturday at the football team’s annual media day. Quarterback Jacory Harris, the marquee name among the 12 known football players involved, said he expects to be able to play in the season opener and described the scandal as “just a little bump in the road.”

SONOMA, Calif. — Will Power inched closer to IndyCar points leader Dario Franchitti with his second straight win at Infineon Raceway, then appropriately shared the podium with his two teammates. Helio Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe completed a 1-2-3 sweep for Team Penske at the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma on Sunday — the first for owner Roger Penske in nearly 20 years — but it was the job the two did on Franchitti that made the biggest difference. Franchitti started fourth but couldn’t get around Castroneves or Briscoe, who formed the perfect blockade and allowed Power to post his fifth victory of the season. That pulled the Australian within 26 points of Franchitti with four races to go. “I said before the race that if we could finish how we started, it would be a perfect weekend,” said Power, who became the first two-time winner of this event. “Now we have a legitimate shot at the championship. Two more road courses, two more ovals and we can get this.” Power led 71 of the 75 laps while winning his second consecutive race from the pole here at Infineon Raceway, the same track where his career almost ended in 2009 following a horrific crash.

With 2005, 2009 and 2010 champion Kim Clijsters sidelined by a stomach muscle injury, the third-seeded Sharapova joins Williams’ younger sister, Serena, as the women considered most likely to win the title two weeks from now. “I mean, to be honest, I have been seeded a lot lower, and I’ve still been one of the favorites,” Sharapova said, “so it’s not anything new for me that people expect me to do well.” For the first time since the 2004 Australian Open, neither Federer nor Rafael Nadal is seeded No. 1 at a Grand Slam tournament. Instead, that honor went to Djokovic, who is producing one of the greatest seasons in tennis history. He’s 57-2 with nine titles, including at Wimbledon and the Australian Open. He’s also 5-0 against Nadal, with all of those matchups coming in tournament finals: two on hard courts, two on clay, and one on grass at the All England Club last month. “The record speaks for it-

The big difference in this year’s meeting was the Raiders’ firstmake the playoffs anyway, so the division title means little more than bragging rights. Still, it’s enough to make fans almost forget the bankruptcy of the failed McCourt regime in Los Angeles, and the problems with Bernard Madoff’s investments that will cost the Mets in the near-term and could really cost owner Fred Wilpon in the future. Surely they’ve already forgotten a tired and bloated All-Star game that threatened to set a new low in the long history of

Jason Campbell completed 12 of 17 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown, capping his first drive with a 35-yard scoring strike to Derek Hagan. Hagan, signed during training camp, has become one of Oakland’s most reliable receivers this summer, catching six passes for 121 yards this game. Rookie Taiwan Jones also shined in his exhibition debut, running for 81yards and a touchdown and catching two passes for18 yards.

11th in the standings, and he’s only 21 points away from unseating Tony Stewart for the 10th position and locking in his berth. “Who’s 10th? Is it Tony? Tony is pretty good,” Keselowski said. “Beating Tony Stewart by an average of 10 positions over two races, that’s going to be pretty tough to be honest.” Try telling that to Stewart, who has run terrible of late. A week after declaring his Stewart-Haas Racing team doesn’t deserve a spot in the

Chase, Stewart backed it up with one of the most perplexing weekends of his career. He qualified last in the 43-car field on the same day teammate Ryan Newman won the pole. Although he vowed in driver introductions not to stay in the back of the pack for long, he was lapped early and often as Stewart struggled to a 28th-place finish. “It’s no different than it was last week,” Stewart said. “The feeling is the same — you still want to make it.

Hoping to use his push to make the Chase as a distraction to his messy free agency, Bowyer instead ran in the back of the pack near Stewart most of the race and finished 26th. He dropped a spot in the standings to 12th, and because he’s winless this season, he’d be bounced out of the Chase by wild card drivers.

After roughly 36” of rain fell across the region, all is quiet as we start a new week. Now the cleanup must begin. The Susquehanna River will come close to the 22’ flood stage, but we anticipate any flooding would be minimal and only in low-lying areas. Thankfully the river was running low at the time of the flooding rains from Irene. We’ll get a bit of a breeze out of the northwest today, but skies will stay pleasant for the next several days. The next chance for any rain is late in the day on Thursday. Between now and then, things will be on the cool side, with overnight lows hovering around 50 later tonight. - Ryan Coyle

Dinner guest exposed to salmonella puzzled by hosts’ silent response Dear Abby: I was at a party where guests were exposed to salmonella that was on one of the vegetables served as an appetizer. At least 11 people were affected by it. The hosts talked to only one or two of the people who were affected. Some of us were concerned that the hosts didn’t contact everyone and warn them of what had happened. Don’t you think they had a responsibility to contact all their guests and advise them of the problem, and even express concern and apologies? — Sick in California Dear Sick: Yes, I do. A responsible

DEAR ABBY ADVICE host would not only call to advise the guests and apologize to anyone who was affected, but also contact the manager of the store at which the vegetables were purchased. If the store isn’t put on notice, it can’t prevent other customers from buying contaminated produce. Now that you know how little consideration your hosts had for the welfare of their guests, reconsider accepting another of their dinner invitations. Dear Abby: “Amy” and I have been married seven years. I used to enjoy

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

family gatherings with my parents and brothers, but I am finding them stressful. Amy always seems to have an issue with “time.” My family is easygoing and sometimes late for various reasons. Amy doesn’t understand why this happens. She believes the timelines are being amended to suit one of my brothers and his family. Their tardiness bothers Amy, and she asked me to talk to my family members about it. I did, and they don’t see a problem. This is the way our family has always been. Amy stresses me out (high blood pressure runs on the male side of my family) when I should be enjoying these gatherings. By the way, my wife is an only child and has no extended family. She has never experienced what larger families

CRYPTOQUOTE

go through. Should she ease off, or should I ask my loved ones to change their ways? — Pressured in Toronto Dear Pressured: You said you have already talked to your family about this. Because this is the way your family has always functioned, it is highly unlikely that they’re going to change now. Sometimes you have to accept family warts and all, and this appears to be one of them. Dear Abby: I recently got out of a two-year relationship. He broke up with me without explanation. I’m not over him and it still hurts, but at the same time I am starting to have feelings for someone else. The problem is I’m afraid he’s just the “rebound” guy.

What should I do? — Ready to Move On in Ohio Dear Ready To Move On: You’re still healing — and being attracted to someone other than the man who dumped you shows you are progressing. That’s a good sign. Rather than worry about whether this relationship will be “for keeps,” take it a step at a time. Enjoy his company, let him enjoy yours, and be thankful the romance that didn’t work out didn’t take up more of your time. 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’ll spice up the day by going for a bigger challenge than you did last week. Also, you’ll have the courage to ask questions and bring up topics that you dared not touch before. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Normally, you subscribe to the “no guts, no glory” adage. But today you’re not really after glory, so you take it in a different direction: No guts, no fun. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A conflict is still dragging on. You cannot honestly say you want peace while you are still fighting. Lay down your arms. The other team is as tired of the battle as you are. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It takes discipline, but you do your work whether or not you feel inspired to do it. Because you put yourself in motion, a sudden flash of insight comes in the afternoon. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some days it seems like you have given so much that you’ve forgotten how to receive. And yet receiving is an important part of the cycle. It’s a kind of art in and of itself. To receive well is a gift to others. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You express yourself so eloquently that you may be asked to do so in public, perhaps by giving a speech, talk, sales pitch or toast. You’ll deliver the words that go straight to the heart. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will experience moments of happiness that are too vivid to miss and too intense to take for granted. Life doesn’t always come at you with this kind of velocity, and it will certainly wake you up!

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). You will spend a certain amount of time struggling against the growing number of emails and advertisements designed to capture and keep your attention on things you’re not so sure you really care about. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Small differences in what you think can lead to big differences in who you become. Ultimately, you’ll achieve a goal because of your brilliant way of handling stress. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are indicators, albeit small ones, that there is something tantalizing brewing in your world. Look into each clue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll do the work to make a relationship progress smoothly. Your brain works in different ways from that of your loved one. What’s easy for you is difficult for this person, and vice versa. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The inanimate objects in your life seem to be conspiring to fill up your space. You’ll have to fight for the territory that rightly belongs to you by getting rid of junk. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 29). Your birthday brings clarity of mind. After many months of indecision and waiting, in September you will know exactly what to do and will quickly move to accomplish it. Fascinating new people enter your scene in October. A windfall comes in December and April. Capricorn and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 13, 50 and 14.
