In New York City, where people had braced for a disaster-movie scene of water swirling around skyscrapers, the subways and buses were up and running again in time for the Monday morning commute. And to the surprise of many New Yorkers, things went pretty smoothly. But in New England, landlocked Vermont contended with what its governor called the worst flooding in a century. Streams also raged out of control in upstate New York. In many cases, the moment of maximum danger arrived well after the storm had passed, as rainwater made its way into rivers and streams and turned them into torrents. Irene dumped up AP PHOTO to 11 inches of rain on Vermont and more than 13 in parts of New Jarrid Gonyea and his wife, Michelle, of Wilmington , N.Y., check

MONTPELIER, Vt. — The full measure of Hurricane Irene’s fury came into focus Monday as the death toll jumped to 40, New England towns battled epic floods and millions faced the dispiriting prospect of several days without electricity. From North Carolina to Maine, communities cleaned up and took stock of the uneven and hard-to-predict costs of a storm that spared the nation’s biggest city a nightmare scenario, only to deliver a historic wallop to towns well inland.

Exhausted residents, contractors and utility workers attacked the wreckage of Tropical Storm Irene on Monday with chainsaws, rakes and pumps. “I’m very tired,” said Kingston Township mother of four Lori Rollman as she picked up remnants of a neighbor’s roughly 150year-old oak tree that had crashed onto her Vine Street property Sunday morning. The tree, removed Monday morning, took out much of Rollman’s backyard fence, the ripening vegetables she was just getting ready to pick and the cover of her inground pool, damaging the lining. She was grateful when power was restored around 9 a.m. Monday. “When the power came back on, we started jumping up and down,” Rollman said. The scene in Kingston Township was repeated throughout the region Monday after a pounding from Irene, with intense winds and heavy rain that left flooding, thousands without electricity and damaged homes and properties.

Millions still lack power after storm By CHRIS KAHN and JONATHAN FAHEY AP Energy Writers

NEW YORK — Utility crews are scrambling to restore power after Hurricane Irene swept across the East Coast this weekend, leaving 7.4 million homes and businesses without electricity. It may be a week or more before some people get their power back. Repair crews struggled Monday with uprooted trees, broken bridges and flood waters as they made repairs. Irene smashed power poles, ripped transmission wires and flooded electrical stations over thousands of square miles as it whipped north from South Carolina to Maine. Nearly 5 million power customers were still without power as of late Monday night. UGI Electric spokesman Joseph Swope said when Monday See POWER, Page 6A

Larksville couple win $1.1M in lottery game This is not the first time that store in borough has seen locals strike lottery gold.

By GERI GIBBONS Times Leader Correspondent

LARKSVILLE – A borough couple received some of the best news of their lives on Monday as a result of their recent purchase of a “quick pick” Cash 5 ticket worth $1.1 million. The ticket was purchased at the UniMart Convenient Mart,175 E. State St., Larksville. A copy of the ticket posted in the front of the store revealed that those lucky numbers were 03-1725-34-38. It not the first time that area residents struck lottery gold on State Street. In October 2006, 40 employees of nearby State Street Elementary School won $400,000 in a Powerball drawing, resulting in each participant in the pool receiving approximately $10,000. In the recent lottery win, the

couple brought the ticket into the store on Saturday, shortly after realizing that the numbers on their ticket matched the numbers announced by lottery officials. Today their good fortune was confirmed when lottery officials visited the store and validated the ticket. “They were very surprised and excited,” said employee Mary Nulton, indicating that the couple bought a ticket at the store “at least every other day.” Nulton said the ticket had been sold by employee Liz Dorris, and that all store employees were excited that the couple had won such a large amount and that the store had sold it. “We haven’t had so much activity and excitement around here for a while,” said Nulton. The store will receive $10,000 as a bonus for selling the winning ticket. Customers visiting the store were unanimous in their positive feelings about area residents winning the jackpot. Many of them were motivated to buy various

types of lottery tickets, believing that it was indeed possible to win. “I think the lottery owes me money,” said resident Ralph Castner, referring to the fact that he plays frequently and wins only occasionally. “I’m going to keep playing anyway,” said Castner, smiling, cash in hand, waiting to purchase a potentially lucky ticket. “You never know.”

“I’m very happy for the couple,” said resident Rosemary Meininger, even though her part of the borough hasn’t had power since early Sunday morning. Meininger said such good news “puts things in a better perspective.” Customer Elaine Tabit said that although she doesn’t play the lottery, she was “thrilled for the lucky local couple.” The win has seemingly not on-

Although the couple have yet to be identified, it is anticipated that their names will be released later this week. Cash 5 is a daily game of the Pennsylvania Lottery. Proceeds of the game benefit senior citizens.

By BRAD PATTON For The Times Leader

PLAINS TWP. -- The Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs wrapped up its third summer of concerts Monday evening with a mostly winning performance by oldschool entertainer Tony Orlando. Orlando, who had his first hits as a 16-year-old in 1961 and rose to international stardom in the 1970s as the lead singer of Tony Orlando & Dawn, seemed in a hurry to take the stage Monday as he strolled out in the middle of his introduction, took the microphone and did an impromptu a cappella rendition of “Goodbye, Irene” (bidding good riddance to the hurricane). The singer and his six-piece band then launched into Sam Cooke’s “Havin’ a Party,” which was a great way to get the party started. Somewhat surprisingly, Orlando then did all of his group’s biggest hits – “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree,” “Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose,” “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You)” and a medley of “Candida” and “Knock Three Times” – one right after another, seemingly before the audience could get comfortable in its seats. With all the big hits out of the way, Orlando then spent the bulk of the evening doing cover versions of hits of the 1950s and 1960s, including two by Ben E. King (and another King sang lead on by the Drifters) and six (yes, six!) by The Beatles. It was a bit disappointing that he raced through his own hits so quickly -- and let his backing band do lead vocals on about five numbers, including a weird, totally unexpected cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” – but overall, it was the kind of performance

Tony Orlando performed Monday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.

you would expect at a casino. Orlando, the now 67-year-old longtime veteran of the Las Vegas casino circuit, made the racetrack in Plains Township feel like the showroom at the Sahara, circa 1975. After 50 years, Orlando is still working with Toni Wine, the talented singer and songwriter who wrote “Candida” and sang backup on the hit version of “Knock Three Times” (before Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent became the permanent Dawn), and he spotlighted her talent to good effect on Monday. She sang a beautiful version of Carole King’s “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” with Orlando chipping in some great harmony vocals, and a bit of the Archies’ bubblegum classic “Sugar, Sugar” (Ms. Wine also sup-

plied the voices of Veronica and Betty on the cartoon). Orlando did a nice rendition of another song written by King – his first hit, “Halfway To Paradise,” which peaked at No. 39 in 1961, nearly a decade before Orlando hit the jackpot with his Dawn tunes. He then did a nice tribute to recently deceased songwriter Jerry Leiber, who wrote many rock ’n’ roll classics with Mike Stoller, including “Spanish Harlem” and “Stand By Me.” Orlando brought the house down with a nice rendition of Neil Diamond’s “America” as a tribute to our nation’s troops and veterans before finishing up with half a dozen tunes made famous by The Beatles, including a medley of “Let It Be” and “Hey Jude” and a very fine version of “Something.”

Obama’s uncle stopped on DUI suspicion FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — President Barack Obama’s uncle was stopped on suspicion of drunken driving, told police he planned to arrange bail through the White House and was being held without bail on an immigration detainer, authorities said Monday. Onyango Obama was arrested last week in Framingham, about 20 miles west of Boston, after police said he made a rolling stop through a stop sign and nearly caused a cruiser to strike his sport utility vehicle. Police said that after being booked at the police station, Obama was asked whether he wanted to make a telephone call to arrange for bail.

HARRISBURG – One player matched all five winning numbers drawn in Monday’s “Pennsylvania Cash 5” game and will win a jackpot worth $225,000. Lottery officials said 57 players matched four numbers and won $309 each; 2,529 players matched three numbers and won $11.50 each; and 31,487 players matched two numbers and won $1 each. Thursday’s “Pennsylvania Match 6 Lotto” jackpot will be worth at least $1,560,000 because no player holds a ticket with one row that matches all six winning numbers drawn in Monday’s game.

“I think I will call the White House,” he stated, according to a police report filed in Framingham DisOnyango Obama trict Court. Police said Obama, who’s originally from Kenya and is the half-brother of the president’s late father, pleaded not guilty Friday and was being held withoutbailonadetainerfromU.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In a court document, ICE said he had an earlier deportation or removal order. His immigration status couldn’t immediately be confirmed, but such orders are generally reserved

for people living in the country illegally. An immigration detainer, used by ICE to identify people in jail or prison who could be deported, is a request to another law enforcement agency to notify ICE before releasing the person from custody so ICE can arrange to take over custody. A spokesman for ICE declined to comment on Obama’s immigration case, and the White House had no comment. The president refers in his memoir “Dreams from My Father,” about retracing his roots and his 1988 trip to Kenya, to an Uncle Omar, who matches Obama’s background and has the same date of birth.

W-B teen Mission receives comforting gifts is found dead at beach

GAR student Erick McDonald was found floating in the water at New Jersey beach. By SHEENA DELAZIO

A Wilkes-Barre teen was found dead Saturday along a New Jersey beach, according to police. The body of Erick McDonald, 17, a GAR student and WilkesBarre resident, was found in the Cliffwood Beach section of Old Bridge Township early Saturday morning. “A female found him floating in the water, McDonald and we were dispatched there,” Lt. Paul Moser of the Old Bridge Township police department said Monday. “He was taken to a local hospital and pronounced (dead) at 7:29 a.m.” McDonald’s uncle, Thomas McDonald of Nanticoke, told The Times Leader his nephew would have been a senior at GAR High School. Times Leader archives indicate McDonald was a wrestler for the school’s team and had previously been a fullback and linebacker for the Grenadier football team. Moser said no autopsy has yet been set, but it will likely occur within the next day or so to determine the cause of McDonald’s death. A New Jersey newspaper reported police do not suspect McDonald’s death to be suspicious. “There is a story there. What was he up to? Who did he meet up with? It’s a standard investigation,” Moser said. Police said McDonald was reported missing on Tuesday by his mother, Doreen McDonald, and that authorities searched for the teen for a number of days. Erick McDonald was found early Saturday morning, several hours before Hurricane Irene hit the coastline. Thomas McDonald, Erick’s uncle, said the teen had been down in recent weeks because the teen’s father, Dennis McDonald, passed away on July 19. “He took it hard,” Thomas McDonald said of the effect his brother’s death had on his nephew. McDonald said his nephew had been in the custody of his grandmother, Catherine McDonald, and had gone to live with his father a month before his father’s death. Erick McDonald had been on vacation with a friend in New JerSee TEEN, Page 5A

WILKES-BARRE – The first 50 sleeping bags handmade by volunteers were delivered Monday to the Wyoming Valley Rescue Mission. Carla Garrigan, a project coordinator, said the goal is to make 150 more, but she said that if enough materials are donated and the need is there, volunteers will make more than the original goal of 200 bags. “We made 50 bags in one month,” Garrigan said. “It’s nice to have this many ready so soon. We intend to keep making them.” The project is called “The Sleeping Bag Project” and is rooted in the “Ugly Quilts” effort, named because the blankets are made from recycled bed linens, blankets and other items. Steve and Gail Perillo, of Making a Difference Ministry in Wilkes-Barre, have teamed with Carla and Michael Garrigan

OLD FORGE – Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum met with some old friends and supporters in Luzerne County on Monday night to ask for their help in his bid for the Republican nomination for president. After spending some significant time campaigning in states with the earliest primary elections and a stop in Florida over the weekend, the 12-term for-

amily Service Association of Wyoming Valley is holding its F 117th annual meeting on Sept. 12 at

noon at the East Mountain Inn. Executive Director Michael Zimmerman said the Maslow Family Foundation will be honored for its assistance to the agency. The Maslow Family Foundation Inc. was established in 1994 by Richard Maslow and his family to serve as a vehicle to contribute to help meet the needs of the Wyoming Valley community. The foundation’s focus is to support the arts, special-needs children and social programs for the purpose of improving quality of life, especially for the less fortunate. “The foundation has done so much for so many over the years and we are grateful. Our naming them as this year’s honoree for our annual meeting is just a small way in which we can say thank you,” Zimmerman said. For further information on the annual meeting, or to make a reservation to attend, contact FSAWV at 823-5144. Reservations are required along with a donation of $35 per person to cover luncheon costs.

PLYMOUTH – Plans to repair or replace the Coal Street Creek Bridge are moving forward. State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, said Monday the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Luzerne/Lackawanna Metropolitan Planning Organization still must meet to finalize the funding for the bridge work. He said that approval could come within the next two weeks. He said the recent storm damage may delay the meeting.

al and state highway/bridge funds are allocated for all areas of both counties. Yudichak said PennDOT and the MPO are pursuing funding for construction of a new bridge, while Luzerne County has agreed to discuss releasing $200,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding to cover the design and demolition portions of a bridge project. “Since the serious flash flooding on Coal Street in July, my office has been working closely with Plymouth Borough, Plymouth Township and all appropriate state, local and federal agencies looking for funding sources to help replace the damaged bridge and reduce the risk of future flooding,”

George Roberts, PennDOT District 4-0 Executive, noted that the July flood submerged the Coal Street Bridge in Plymouth Township. Taluto said the Lackawanna Luzerne Transportation Study Committee (LLTS) will ask for funding for this project since the span is less than 20 feet and “can’t be federalized.” The bridge, located at the intersection of Coal Street and Mill Street in Plymouth, was condemned shortly after the July 3 flooding that caused extensive damage to the Coal Street roadway and several homes.

A Wyoming man was sentenced Monday to five months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik for defrauding a number of banks by opening up fraudulent credit accounts. John Kropp, 53, was also ordered to pay $26,988 in restitution and to serve two years of supervised release upon his release from prison, with the first five months spent on home confinement. Kropp pleaded guilty in July 2010 to one count of mail fraud. Federal prosecutors said Kropp, while operating under the business name of Horizon Landscaping, opened up various credit card accounts in the name of an unwitting employee of Horizon. To effectuate the scheme, Kropp forged the employee’s signature on the applications and used the employee’s personal identifiers such as date of birth and Social Security number. WILKES-BARRE

Restaurant gets sued

A lawsuit was filed Monday against a local restaurant and its owner after the restaurant allegedly defaulted on paying for items supplied to the Wilkes-Barre Township business. Reinhart Foodservice LLC filed a lawsuit in Luzerne County court Monday against Porta Fino Inc., its restaurant, and owner Anthony Trombetta. The suit alleges $26,377 worth of goods was not paid for by the company or Trombetta, and asks for the money, as well as interest and costs of the lawsuit. The suit did not detail the items not paid for, and alleges charges of breach of contract, unjust enrichment and personal guaranty. Trombetta had been drawn into the ongoing public corruption probe through his businesses, including Terra Firma. That business allegedly received assistance through the county’s Tax Increment Financing program (TIF) to develop the Insignia Point townhouse project in Jenkins Township. Former county Commissioner Greg Skrepenak pleaded guilty in federal court to accepting $5,000 for helping Insignia Point get approval for the TIF. Trombetta has not been charged with any wrongdoing in those incidents.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s wife and three of his children fled Libya to neighboring Algeria on Monday, firm evidence the longtime leader has lost his grip on the country. Gadhafi’s whereabouts were still unknown and rebels are worried that if he remains in Libya, it will stoke more violence. In Washington, the Obama administration said it has no indication Gadhafi has left the country. Rebels also said one of Gadhafi’s other sons, elite military

commander Khamis, was probably killed in battle. The Algerian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Gadhafi’s wife, Safia, his sons Hannibal and Mohammed, and his daughter, Aisha, entered the country across the land border. It said Algerian authorities have informed the United Nations Secretary General, the president of the U.N. Security Council, and the head of the Libyan rebels transitional leadership council. Ahmed Jibril, an aide to rebel National Transitional Council head Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said officials would “demand that Algerian authorities hand them over to Libya to be tried before Libyan courts.” Gadhafi’s children played important roles in Libya’s military

Ahmed Bani, military spokesman of the council, said he was not surprised to hear Algeria had welcomed Gadhafi’s relatives. Throughout the sixmonth Libyan uprising, rebels have accused Algeria of providing Gadhafi with mercenaries to repress the revolt.

said the students have gathered more than 63,000 signatures from supporters. The National Guestworker Alliance said Monday the students who protested working conditions and low wages at a distribution center run by a Hershey vendor earlier this month are demanding a refund of fees they paid to come to the U.S. on J-1 visas for work and cultural experiences. They also want the jobs they filled to be given to local workers. The alliance says the students planned to deliver the petitions Monday to the office of Leroy Zimmerman, chairman of the Hershey Trust, which controls the candy company.

Soldiers police streets

After a series of bombings in Nigeria’s capital, bars popular with the nation’s elite now close by 10 p.m. Soldiers in flak jackets carrying assault rifles guard the oil-rich country’s only Hilton. And every day, nervous citizens think twice about heading to market or into the street. Abuja, Nigeria’s modern city of paved highways and shining government buildings, now looks militarized as the nation struggles to cope with the bombings. The latest one, on Friday, killed 23 people at the headquarters of the United Nations. Nigerians say they’re losing faith in the ability of President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration to stop the killings, especially those committed by the radical Muslim sect that claimed responsibility for the U.N. attack.

Yellowstone bear kills man

Wildlife agents were trying to capture a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park after it killed a Michigan hiker in the second fatal bear attack this summer in the famed park, authorities said Monday. The body of John Wallace, 59, was discovered Friday along a trail in an area of the park known for its high population of bears. An autopsy concluded he died from injuries sustained in a bear attack. Rangers set traps and plan to kill the bear if they can establish through DNA analysis that it was the one that attacked Wallace, a park official said.

Polygamist leader Jeffs hospitalized after fasting Texas man is serving a life sentence for sexually assaulting underage followers he took as spiritual brides. By MICHAEL GRACZYK Associated Press

HOUSTON — Imprisoned polygamist leader Warren Jeffs is in a coma in a Texas hospital after complications from fasting. A person familiar with Jeffs’ condition told The Associated Press on Monday that the 55-year-old prisoner’s coma was medically induced and he’s expected to survive. The person requested anonymity because the person was not autho-

rized to discuss Jeff’s condition publicly. Jeffs’ attorney Emily Detoto says her client was taken to East Texas Medical Center in Tyler on Sunday night. Texas Department of Jeffs Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons says Jeffs hasn’t been eating or drinking enough since being sentenced this month to life in prison for sexually assaulting underage followers. Lyons says Jeffs is in critical but stable condition. It’s not clear how long he’ll be hospitalized. Lyons said Jeffs told guards he has fast-

ed in the time since his conviction earlier this month, though it was not immediately clear how long he had gone without food before being hospitalized. During Jeffs’ trial, prosecutors used DNA evidence to show he fathered a child with a 15-year-old and played an audio recording of what they said was him sexually assaulting a 12-year-old. Both were among 24 underage wives who prosecutors said Jeffs collected. Court documents show Jeffs tried to hang himself in January 2007 while awaiting trial on rape charges in Washington County, Utah. He also threw himself against the walls of his cell and banged his head.

Russia delays trips to, from space station Last week’s launch accident postpones new crews from flying, NASA says.


By JIM HEINTZ Associated Press

A new round of fierce fighting in southern Yemen killed 10 soldiers and 26 militants, military officials said Monday, the latest battle in a government campaign to retake territory from al-Qaida-linked fighters, . Another 38 militants and about 30 soldiers were wounded in the clashes that took place near the city of Dufas in the southern province of Abyan, they said. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations, said the fighting took place over the past 24 hours. Among the military dead was a colonel. The U.S. and other Western powers have looked on with concern as alQaida gains a strong foothold in southern Yemen. The U.S. considers the Yemen spur of al-Qaida as one of the most active in worldwide terror.

MOSCOW — Russian news agencies say the country’s space agency is delaying both the return of astronauts from the International Space Station and the launch of the next mission to the orbiting laboratory. The announcements came after last week’s failure of the launch of an unmanned supply ship to the space station. The Soyuz rocket sending it into space failed after launch and crashed and exploded in a forested area of Siberia. The news agencies RIA Novosti, ITARTass and Interfax on Monday quoted the head of Roscosmos’s manned space operations, Alexei Krasnov, as saying the return of three astronauts from the ISS was being put off from Sept. 8 to about Sept. 16. He also said the next launch to the space station, scheduled for Sept. 22, would be delayed until the end of October or early November. Roscosmos spokesman Igor Zatulin said he could not immediately confirm the reports.

36 killed in fighting


The International Space Station may have to be temporarily abandoned if a Russian launch accident prevents new crews from flying, an official said Monday.

Since the end of the U.S. space shuttle program, Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft have been the only vehicle to get crew to or from the space station. There are six crew members aboard the space station. American Ronald Garan Jr. and Russians Andrey Borisenko and Alexander Samokutyaev, who have been in orbit since April, were to return to Earth on Sept. 8. The comments reported by the Russian agencies did not specify why the re-

turn mission was being put off. But they quoted Krasnov as saying the next launch would be delayed until one or two unmanned firings could be conducted of rockets of the type used to launch the Soyuz space capsule. Russians Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoly Ivanishin and American Daniel Berbank are the crew for the next launch. The failure of the Progress cargo ship launch was the fourth Russian spacecraft lost in the past nine months.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Direct U.S. talks with the Taliban had evolved to a substantive negotiation before Afghan officials, nervous that the secret and independent talks would undercut President Hamid Karzai, scuttled them, Afghan and U.S. officials Karzai told The Associated Press. Featured prominently in the talks was the whereabouts and eventual release of U.S. Army Omar Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured more than two years ago in eastern Afghanistan, according to a senior Western diplomat in the region and a childhood friend of the Taliban negotiator, Tayyab Aga. The U.S. negotiators asked Aga what could be done to gain the Idaho man’s release. The discussion did not get into specifics but Aga discussed the release of Afghan prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in Afghanistan at Bagram Air Field. Published reports about the clandestine meetings ended the talks abruptly, and sent Aga into hiding. Collapse of the direct talks between Aga and U.S. officials probably spoiled the best chance yet at reaching Mullah Mohammed Omar, considered the linchpin to ending the Taliban fight against the U.S.-backed government in Afghanistan. The contacts were preliminary but had begun to bear fruit, Afghan and U.S. officials said. Perhaps most important they offered the tantalizing prospect of a brokered agreement between the U.S. and the Taliban — one that would allow the larger reconciliation of the Taliban into Afghanistan political life to move forward. The United States has not committed to any such deal, but the Taliban wants security assurances from Washington. Sources told the AP that Aga is hiding in Europe, and is afraid to return to Pakistan, fearing reprisals. The United States has had no direct contact with him for months. The U.S. acknowledged the meetings after Karzai confirmed published accounts about them in June.

Another 140 acres preserved

Farmland Preservation Program check goes to effort by Joe and Pat Gans. By TOM VENESKY

Piece by piece, Joe and Pat Gans have been rebuilding their family’s Black Creek Township farm. Once a sprawling operation covering approximately 800 acres, over the years the property was divided among family members and split from the farm. Thirty-five years ago the Gans made their first purchase – a house with a few acres -- and since then they have been acquiring chunks of property and slowly reassembling the main farm. “We’re trying to put it back together,” Joe Gans said. “We’ve been fortunate to be able to purchase the farms that we did.” On Monday, the Gans’ effort to rebuild the main farm received a boost when they were handed a check for a conservation easement on 140 acres. The Luzerne County Farmland Preservation Program preserves active farms and prevents them from being used for any purpose other than agriculture and related activities. The preservation is done through the purchase of a conservation

easement for which the farmer is compensated. The Gans received $3,400 per acre for the conservation easement. With the preservation of the crop farm, the Luzerne County Farmland Preservation Program has now preserved 23 farms, totaling approximately 2,400 acres. In Black Creek Township alone six farms have been preserved, encompassing 654 acres. Pat Gans said the program is helping to save the rural atmosphere of their township and other areas where farms have been preserved. “There are housing developments in our township, but they’re on the other side of the valley. Our side is strictly farms, and that’s the way Black Creek Township was meant to be,” she said. Preserving farms that are close to each other is in accordance with a proposed land-use plan for Luzerne and Lackawanna counties, said program administrator Nancy Snee. By preserving farms that are close together, Snee said, large tracts of open space are maintained while development is focused in areas where infrastructure already exists. The preservation program also benefits communities, she added, by protecting sources of locally grown food, providing


WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Police said Jeffrey Desir, 27, of Irving Place, was cited with loitering and prowling at night after he was allegedly found hiding near a residence on Mallery Place at 10:22 p.m. Thursday. He was also cited with criminal mischief. • Police said they arrested Brian Stevens, 34, of Gardner Avenue, Wilkes-Barre, on assault charges after he urinated on a woman and threatened her with a butcher knife on Gardner Avenue at 5:25 a.m. Monday. • Police said they cited Alex Kowalczwk, Mark Betancourt, and Albano Dasilva, all of Wilkes-Barre, after investigating a fight in the area of 16 Maple St. at 4:10 a.m. Saturday. • Christopher Gallagher reported Sunday two male juveniles threw a garbage can that damaged his vehicle in the 1200 block of North Washington Street. • Police said money was stolen during a burglary at the Republic’s Club on South Sherman Street on Sunday. • A door was found tampered with at Lone Star Steakhouse on Kidder Street on Sunday, police said. • Christie Kipa reported Saturday someone slashed a tire on her vehicle in the area of 315 E.

wildlife habitat and maintaining the aesthetic appeal of farm areas. There’s also a financial benefit for municipalities. “Research has shown that it is cheaper for municipalities to service farmland than it is to provide services for housing developments, thereby keeping taxes lower,” Snee said. Joe Gans said some of the money from the preservation of their farm will be used to improve the property. The rest, he added, will be set aside to purchase more farmland and enroll that in the preservation program as well. The Gans have two more applications pending to preserve more blocks of land. “If you drive to Allentown or Philadelphia, you’ll see a lot of very good farm ground that was lost to housing developments,” he said. “This program is an excellent way to preserve the history of an area. I’m proud to say that we preserved our farm, and we hope to preserve more.” Snee said there are 21 farms on the waiting list and the deadline to apply for the program is Feb. 1, 2012.

sey, where his mother lives. “I found out he was missing because they found his phone and they were going through it and saw I had texted him a few days before,” Thomas McDonald said. He said Erick told him he was going to New Jersey for a concert with a friend. “He was my best friend,” McDonald said of the 17-year-old. “I took him to Scouts, Little League … I needed him to know there was people there for him.” McDonald said he isn’t sure if foul play is involved in his nephew death, but that his passing would be easier to accept if it was natu-

was driving. Police said Glodzik then struggled with two police officers at a hospital after they requested a bloodGlodzik alcohol test. Police said Glodzik showed signs of intoxication after the incident, and was taken to the Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. Police said Glodzik kept stopping in the hospital’s parking lot, saying he did not want to be embarrassed by wearing handcuffs in the emergency room. He then said he was afraid of needles, kept trying to stand up and tried to head-butt an officer. A blood-alcohol content test came back below the legal limit of .08 percent, police said. AtapreliminaryhearingonSept. 18, the woman did not testify, resulting in the charges of drunken driving and reckless endangerment being dismissed. ral. “If someone was involved in the accidental death or intentional death of my nephew, there is no secure place for them anywhere. This kid was my life,” McDonald said. McDonald admitted he is angry about his nephew’s passing, but only because a good kid was taken so early. “If they can come back and take me (in his place) they could. I don’t know how I can survive without him.” Bill O’Boyle, a Times Leader staff writer, contributed to this report. Sheena Delazio, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 8297235.

York. “We were expecting heavy rains,” said Bobbi-Jean Jeun of Clarksville, a hamlet near Albany, N.Y. “We were expecting flooding. We weren’t expecting devastation. It looks like somebody set a bomb off.” Meanwhile, the 11-state death toll, which had stood at 21 as of Sunday night, rose sharply as bodies were pulled from floodwaters and people were electrocuted by downed power lines. The tally of Irene’s destruction mounted, too. An apparently vacant home exploded in an evacuated, flooded area in Pompton Lakes, N.J., early Monday, and firefighters had to battle the flames from a boat. In the Albany, N.Y., suburb of Guilderland, police rescued two people Monday after their car was swept away. Rescuers found them three hours later, clinging to trees along the swollen creek. “It’s going to take time to recover from a storm of this magnitude,” President Barack Obama warned as he promised the government would do everything in its power to help people get back on their feet. For many people, the aftermath could prove more painful than the storm itself. In North Carolina, where Irene blew ashore along the Outer Banks on Saturday before heading for New York and New England, 1,000 people were still in emergency shelters, awaiting word on their homes. At the same time, nearly 5 million homes and businesses in a dozen states were still without electricity, and utilities warned it might be a week or more before some people got their power back. “Once the refrigerator gets warm, my insulin goes bad. I could go into diabetic shock. It’s kind of scary because we don’t know how long it’s going to be out for,” said Patricia Dillon, a partially paralyzed resident of a home for the disabled in Milford, Conn., where the electricity was out and a generator failed. Her

voice cracking, she added: “I’m very tired, stressed out, aggravated, scared.” Russ Furlong of Barrington, R.I., ruefully remembered the two weeks he went without power after Hurricane Bob 20 years ago. “Hopefully, we won’t have to wait that long this time,” he said. Up and down the Eastern Seaboard, commuters and vacationers found their travel plans scrambled. Airlines warned it would be days before the thousands of passengers stranded by Irene find their way home. Some Amtrak service in the Northeast was suspended. Commuter trains between New Jersey and New York City were not running. Trains between the city and its northern suburbs were also disrupted. In Vermont, the state’s emergency management headquarters stood empty, evacuated because of river flooding from Irene’s heavy rains. Rescuers used a boat and bucket loaders to pluck seven people from a swamped mobile home park in Lyndonville. In upstate New York, authorities were closely watching major dams holding back drinking water reservoirs. Throughout the region, hun-

dreds of roads were impassable because of flooding or fallen trees, and some bridges had simply given way, including a 156year-old hand-hewn, wooden, covered bridge across Schoharie Creek in Blenheim, N.Y. In all, more than a dozen towns in Vermont and at least three in New York remained cut off by flooded roads and bridges. Still, there were glimmers of good news. In Pennsylvania, the Delaware River largely remained


in its banks, cresting several feet lower than feared. The forecast for flooding on the Mohawk River in New York also eased at Schenectady, N.Y., where officials had worried that high water might threaten the city’s drinking water and sewage treatment plant. Early estimates put Irene’s damage at $7 billion to $10 billion, much smaller than the impact of monster storms such as Hurricane Katrina, which did more than $100 billion in damage.

started, about 12,000 UGI customers were without power in Luzerne County. But even with a full complement of work crews out making repairs, that total actually grew by 1,500 at one point. “Despite an entire day of our efforts, we’re still at 12,000,” Swope said Monday night. “This is historic in terms of damage,” Swope added, noting he lost power at his home for 17 hours before it was restored. Approximately 22,000 UGI Electric customers, including many of those in the Back Mountain area, lost power at some point over the weekend due to extensive damage caused by Hurricane Irene. The storm caused the outage of five transmission feeders, which resulted in the extensive power outages throughout UGI’s service area. Swope said crews were finding it difficult to reach some customers because of downed trees blocking roads and that while many customers should have power restored by week’s end, it’s possible some in rural areas may be waiting a bit longer. “It could go into early next week,” Swope said. About 296,000 PPL Electric Utilities customers lost power because of the storm, with more

than 14,000 of them in Luzerne County. As of 8 p.m. Monday, service had been restored to about 221,000 PPL customers and was expected to be restored to an additional10,000 to15,000 by midnight. There were still 2,246 customers in Luzerne County without power. Technicians were being dispatched to outage work locations based on the number of customers affected, with priority given to any case involving a public safety or health facility, according to the PPL website. Northern East Coast cities, which were hit last by Irene, were still surveying the damage. Vermont experienced its worst floods in a century. Half of Connecticut Light & Power customers were in the dark. “This is just unprecedented,” the utility’s spokesman, David Radanovich, said. “The largest storm we’ve ever faced.” As 750,000 of the utility’s customers lost power over the weekend, Connecticut Light requested outside help. About 200 to 300 additional crews are headed to the state. Public Service Electric and Gas Company, New Jersey’s largest utility, said several thousand homes lost power when electrical substations were flooded. Those stations will remain offline until crews can pump out the water and dry all the equipment. Times Leader staff contributed to this story.

Crawford, 36, of Sweet Valley, appeared before Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley on Monday after violating the terms of her probation after being charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia in a Wyoming County case. “If I revoke, you can be sentenced up to five years in jail,” Polachek Gartley said to Crawford. “These are serious consequences.” Crawford had been convicted in February 2010 of one misdemeanor and one summary count of cruelty to animals, and was sentenced to six months of house arrest and one year, three months probation.

Judges present juvie program for teachers By SHEENA DELAZIO

YATESVILLE – When Judge David Lupas was about 13 years old, he told a group of educators at Pittston Area Senior High School, he worried most about getting ice cream money from his mother and riding his bicycle to a nearby baseball field. Now, the juvenile court judge said, times are different, with children sometimes committing armed robberies. Lupas and a panel of Luzerne County officials presented a Juvenile Justice Task Force conference to teachers at Pittston Area on the school’s in-service day before classes begin on Wednesday. “We have a shared interest in dealing with children on a daily basis,” Lupas said. “We need to work hand-in-hand.” The conference was one of two held Monday – another was at a Wilkes-Barre Area school – in which the task force collaborates with local school districts to tell them how the juvenile justice system works and to keep lines of communication open. The task force, the first of its kind in Pennsylvania, will hold conferences at six local school districts for more than 1,000 educators at the schools’ first in-service days of the year over the next month. The next conference will be at Hanover Area Junior/Senior High School on Sept. 28. Lupas detailed the juvenile delinquency proceedings he presides over in Luzerne County Court, including that each juvenile is represented by an attorney and that the outcome of each child’s proceedings is tailored to his or her needs Monday’s presentation included county District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll, who talked about what happens with a juvenile case from the time it is reported to police until it is completed, either by a judge or by another method, including the newly formed Youth Aid Panels that aim to keep juveniles out of court while holding them accountable for the wrongs they’ve done. “Our goal is to restore the child to the point where they can be a functioning member of society,” Musto Carroll said. County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley spoke of the juvenile dependency court she runs along side county Senior Judge Chester Muroski; she said truancy is the major issue on her list. Joe DeVizia, executive director of the office of human services, also spoke about truancy. County Chief Public Defender Al Flora also was on hand Monday, and he discussed the juvenile unit formed in his office. Flora said one attorney used to handle 70 juveniles a year, but now the unit has expanded to three attorneys, two social workers and an investigator.

Road in Noxen Township. The July arrest resulted in Crawford’s second probation violation, and Polachek Gartley’s resentencing of her on Monday. Crawford had previously violated her probation in April when she allegedly failed to pay costs or restitution in her case. In June, Craw-

ford’s original house arrest and probation sentence was reinstated. Crawford’s attorney, Jonathan Ursiak, told the judge Monday that his client wanted to get back to her children and out of prison. Polachek Gartley told Crawford that she wasn’t taking advantage

of the opportunity given to her with probationary sentences, and that because Crawford wasn’t adhering to the judges rules, a prison sentence was handed down. The judge said Crawford is eligible for the county’s Day Reporting program, and received credit for time already served in prison from

July 27 until Monday. Crawford must undergo a drugand-alcohol evaluation and submit to random testing, Polachek Gartley said. Sheena Delazio, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 8297235.

SANTORUM Continued from Page 3A

His advantage over the other candidates, Santorum said, is his conservative record and his accomplishments. “No one’s been able to accomplish in Washington on national security, on fiscal issues, on tax issues, on moral cultural issues, no one’s been able to make the accomplishments that I have and comes from a conservative camp. ‌ You look at their record and they’ve never accomplished anything. I’ve proven that I’ve been a consistent conservative,â€? he said. After losing the 2006 general election to U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr., Santorum started a media company and spent time writing and on the radio. “I feel like I’ve been out of the beltway ‌ and can come back with the




perspective of having worked in the private sector and apply some of those principles to Washington,� he said. Santorum said Pennsylvania will be an important state for him – politically and financially. On the political side, he said there’s no way a Democrat will win the presidency without carrying Pennsylvania. “I think I can say this without question that if I’m the nominee and I win Pennsylvania in the general election, I’ll be president of the United States, period,� he said. Santorum said he’s been able to raise a lot of money here in the past, and he’s counting on that support again in his bid for the GOP nod. “Now that we’ve shown that we’ve got some real footing and that this is a viable campaign and one that I believe will be successful, we can come back to the people in Pennsylvania and talk about how they can get in-

volved,� he said. Santorum said that when it comes to debates, he’s confident that he is the clear winner among Republican candidates. “No one walks out of that room with more support than I do. There may be others who get support, but we do very, very well when everybody gets a chance to look at all the candidates and see what the message is, see who the messenger is, see what I’ve been able to accomplish in the past and what my vision is for the fu-

Yudichak said the increased traffic on the Arch Bridge is also a concern for municipal officials and PennDOT. Andy Reilly, Luzerne County director of Community Development, said the county does have some block grant money that was not used and must be spent by Oct. 31 or lost. He said the bridge project might not qualify for that funding because of the Oct. 31 deadline. “We are willing to discuss it,� Reilly said. “But I’m skeptical that project could be done within the time frame we have.� He said if the county grant money can’t be used, there may be other revenue sources to pursue. “We will do everything we can to assist in finding a local share,� Reilly said. Joe Mazur, Plymouth Borough manager, said the borough is willing to do “whatever it takes� to get the funding and repair or replace the bridge. Yudichak said he has also been working with various agencies on a Growing Greener Plus application for funding of a Coal Creek Stream Restoration and Flood Protection Project. The Luzerne Conservation District submitted that application last week, Yudichak said.

Recovery of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast since 2005 hurricane has been impressive, many say, but much still needs to be done

Katrina anniversary shows Gulf on the mend By CAIN BURDEAU and KEVIN McGILL Associated Press


People march in the Lower 9th Ward on Monday to commemorate the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.


Caryan Hurst, 2, walks with an umbrella Monday during a parade commemorating the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

meeting focused on government and civic improvements driven by a populace that’s more engaged since the catastrophe. “The region is well positioned to be a model of rebirth as long as it doesn’t let this early progress slip,” said Amy Liu, of the Brookings Institution, and an editor of the book “Resiliency and Opportunity.” The reforms in New Orleans include the creation and funding of an inspector general’s office to oversee city contracting and an independent police monitor to help reform a scandal-plagued police department; a complete overhaul of the education system and a proliferation of independently run charter schools; and an evacuation system that takes into account the needs of those without cars or easy access to trans-

portation. Panelists said Katrina provided an emotional impetus that allowed reform efforts to gain traction. “There’s about a one-letter difference between an engaged citizenry and an enraged citizenry,” said Tulane University’s David A. Marcello, author of a chapter on ethics. “And rage unquestionably fueled a considerable amount of the reform impulse and the engagement that came after Katrina.” “You can’t sustain rage or engagement indefinitely,” Marcelo added. “You have to use those moments to create systems that will endure.” Despite other troubles that have beset the region, such as last year’s oil spill, it looks like the Gulf Coast is on the mend.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said that six years ago it looked like “the hand of God had wiped away the coast.” Today, he continued, visitors to the Mississippi coast “can’t tell anything ever happened because it’s been rebuilt.” “Naysayers predicted our city’s best days were over. We knew better,” said U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans. Still, residents and politicians alike acknowledged there’s a lot left to do. President Barack Obama promised to help the region “come back stronger than before” while praising “the grit and determination” of the Gulf Coast’s residents. He said his administration helped the recovery along by cutting red tape to free up recovery money and broke “through gridlock” to help thousands of displaced families find homes. Still, it’s not as rosy in many neighborhoods like the Lower 9th Ward where the recovery has been very slow. The neighborhood has lost about 14,000 residents.

“It’s pretty slow,” said Henry Holmes, the 77-year-old owner of Eatin’ At Holmes, a restaurant he ran before Katrina. Without flood insurance for his business, he said he had spent his savings to get his restaurant reopened. “Unless it picks up, I’ll have to close in five, six months.” Despite the hopeful tone of many of Monday’s events, statistics released Sunday by Brookings point to numerous longstanding problems laid bare and exacerbated by Katrina, including high poverty, unaffordable housing and racial inequities. And some in the city question the reforms touted by city leaders. Mayor Landrieu addressed some of the prickly issues at the symposium. Post-Katrina school changes, he said, have resulted in increased test scores and a narrowing of the gap in performance between blacks and whites. And he touted his administration’s opening of local health clinics around the city. “Collectively, we as a people have found a way to begin major systemic change,” he said.

sister, U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., joined hundreds of people for a walk to the top of a bridge in the Lower 9th Ward where a bouquet of flowers was tossed into the Industrial Canal. The floodwalls along the canal burst open during Katrina and led to deadly flooding. Similar events were held elsewhere on the Gulf Coast. In Biloxi, Miss., the names of storm victims were read aloud as about 100 people gathered in prayer at the Katrina Memorial site on the Town Green. At the University of New Orleans, the commemoration was more academic than emotional at a symposium to discuss a new book on the recovery by the Brookings Institution and the nonprofit Greater New Orleans Community Data Center. The


NEW ORLEANS — The Gulf Coast mixed somber ceremonies with New Orleans’ signature flair to mark the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and honor those killed during the catastrophic storm that drowned much of the region’s dominant city and devastated coastal towns in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. Monday marked the passage of six difficult years of rebuilding for the region, which is showing signs of a strong recovery from the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history. The storm killed more than 1,800 people, a majority of them in New Orleans, where water filled the city after levees and floodwalls built by the Army Corps of Engineers failed. Despite the hardships, many residents were upbeat. “We’re coming back, one house at a time, just like the community was built so many years ago,” said Ronald Lewis, 60, who lives in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward and runs a Mardi Gras Indian museum called the House of Dance and Feathers. He was one of the first residents to build back after Katrina. To commemorate those lost in Katrina, Lewis and his Original Big 9 Social Aid and Pleasure Club marched a second-line (a special brass-band parade) down one of the only streets rebuilt in the neighborhood’s worst-hit area and hung a new wreath on an oak tree for one member’s mother and niece killed in the storm. The wreath changing has become a yearly ritual for the anniversary. It wasn’t an altogether sad event, with people coming out of their homes to dance to the music and greet friends. Also Monday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and his

Undaunted, kindergartners begin to move into the unknown.

Lesson Number 1: You’ll be just fine


N THE FIRST day of school, you journey into the big, wide world, wondering if you will be OK. You quickly discover that you are not alone; most everyone’s stomach sometimes gets that fluttery feeling, too, and they fixate on the same questions as you. Will I be liked? Do I have the smarts to succeed? Can I do this? Soon, you get familiar with the foreign places (the playground, the classroom, the cafeteria) and the new routines (the bus pick-ups, the bells, single-file, no running, raise your hand). You memorize the schedules. You pass tests. You speak up. Faster than you realize, you befriend many people and maybe find a few not much to your liking. Later, you reevaluate and realize some who

you thought you didn’t care to get to know, you really do. And vice versa. You learn a lot about colors and shapes, numbers and words, politics and people, especially yourself. You change a bit along the way. You have bad days and great ones. Eventually, you figure out something wonderful: You’ve been out in the big world and begun to understand it. You will be OK. Many years later, maybe on the day that you graduate from high school – or enter a college, or start a job, or move to a different city, or remake your career, or redefine your life or finally retire – the cycle repeats. You again journey into the big, wide world, wondering if you will be OK. You quickly discover that you are not alone …

Keep pressure on drilling industry


RESSURE WORKS, and not just in extracting natural gas from shale. One fairly effective argument opponents of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, have rolled out is to speculate about the amount of chemicals used in the process and the impact they are having on the environment. Their argument has been made even more effective because of the mystery surrounding the chemicals being used. Companies have resisted disclosing their exact recipes for competitive reasons. The resulting pressure appears to have gotten to the drilling industry. The Associated Press reports that at a recent conference presented by the Colorado Oil and Gas Association, Halliburton Co. CEO Dave Lesar talked about addressing public concerns about hydraulic fracturing.

To that end, Halliburton has developed a new fracking fluid, which is undergoing field tests, made from materials derived from the food industry. To drive the safety point home, he called up another company executive and asked him to take a sip of the fluid, which he did. (When contacted by The AP and asked how that executive is doing now, or who he is, the company didn’t respond.) One sip is not the equivalent of thousands of gallons of fluid being pumped into the ground. In this case, scale does matter. More field tests and further study are needed. Still, if Halliburton is moving in this direction, other companies are, too. They would not be doing this if the public had not been applying enormous pressure on them to do so. Keep it up.

Lessons from Prohibition era can serve country today KEN BURNS talks too fast. Must be because he’s learned so much about his latest exploration of history that he wants to make sure you hear enough to get as excited about it as he is. Burns recently was introduced to a packed-house Dallas crowd as the “patron saint of all history buffs.” And it’s hard to argue with that description. Burns’ 1990 epic documentary series “The Civil War” breathed incredible life into chapters of the past we all assumed we knew – and he did it through still photographs, talking-head interviews and the reading of letters crafted more than a century earlier. Burns and his teams also have produced programs about baseball and jazz, Thomas Jefferson and Huey Long, explorers Lewis and Clark and women’s-rights pioneers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. He explores history through the lives of the sometimes-ordinary, sometimes-extraordinary people who made it and shows who they are but also how they are us. Their struggles are like our own, and the lessons of their times can guide us still. Burns says his latest work could be about American society today: Single-issue politics yielding horrible unintended consequences. Demonization of recent immigrants. Unfunded congressional mandates.

s my wife and I looked out our window during the height of Hurricane Irene to the very obvious roadblock in front of Liberty Hills, blocking travel on East St. Mary’s Road traveling toward Ashley, we witnessed an amazing sight. Car after car (six by our count in a 5minute period) swerved around the roadblock, actually traveling on the shoulder of the opposing lane, only to return a minute later when it become apparent to the driver that the road really was closed. We pondered this sight and wondered what these drivers were thinking. Perhaps they thought the roadblock was only for the faintest of souls or perhaps their luxury SUVs could surely traverse a pesky flooded road. How many times did we hear – over the past 72 hours, not to mention during every flooding event in the past – not to drive on flooded roads and to be prepared for possible road closures?

messages do little to influence someone who thinks the rules do not apply to them. Why would Hanover Township even think of putting up a roadblock if the road were not actually closed? These are the types of accidents in which the lives of the first responders are put at risk because a driver does not understand the significance of a road blockade.

Hard-hit Back Mountain Water buffaloes were set up in various locations throughout the region. Residents of the hard-hit Back Mountain have access to water at the Jackson Township municipal building on Huntsville Road and the Lehman Township Fire Hall on Firehouse Road. Jackson Township Supervisor John Wilkes Jr. said the water is undrinkable but may be used for flushing toilets, cleaning and other uses. Water safe for drinking should be available today, he said. The Back Mountain Emergency Operating Center set up a command center at the Dallas Fire and Ambulance headquarters on East Center Hill Road in Dallas, Monday morning. Residents were invited to come there for food, beverages and cleaning kits. The center will open again at noon today to provide these items. Harveys Lake residents Charlotte Williams, Amy Williams and Heather Hules set up an emergency center at the Harveys Lake Municipal Building, providing food, beverages, water and a 20-pound bag of ice for each home. The American Red Cross provided cots. Harveys Lake Mayor Clarence Hogan said someone will be at the borough building at all times to try to help in any way they can.

MESS man. In the Harding section of Exeter Township, Santa Maria Niedzwiecki spent her sunny Monday afternoon removing the locust tree branches that blanketed her front yard. A large limb cracked off Sunday, ripping down a utility pole and transformer on Route 92. New utility poles were installed, but power had not been restored as of late Monday afternoon. The locust tree was there before the home was built in the 1950s, said Niedzwiecki, who has lived there since 1985. A contractor was scheduled to remove it. “It’s sad to see the tree go. Thankfully, no one was hurt and it went away from the house,” Niedzwiecki said. She felt bad that her tree was causing a disruption along the stretch and was touched that neighbors came to her yard to help cut the tree into smaller pieces and pile up branches. “They’re so kind to give their time. It just shows people are willing to help in time of need.” Another section of Route 93, like many area highways, was limited to one lane as utility crews removed downed trees and repaired utility lines. A sign at the Exeter Township municipal building near Niedzwiecki’s property issued a brief alert to residents: “Need drinking water go to Mt. Zion Fire House.”

Alex Doyle rests on his aunt’s sunken boat on Monday while Gene Burge and family try to free the sunken motor boat that took on too much water on Harveys Lake during Sunday’s storm.

Stores in the area had run out of drinking water, the women at the borough building said. Harveys Lake resident Bernard Walter assessed the damage to his property Monday, reporting that 13 mature trees on his Lakeside Drive property – spruces, pines and maples – had toppled. Walter had been securing his boat early Sunday morning when he heard the first tree cracking. The others followed, one by one, throughout the day. Insurance will provide little coverage for tree removal, he said. He was saddened by the loss of trees that have been there for decades. “It’s just a lot of natural legacy that’s been lost in this storm,” he said. His property is in a section of the lake known as Point Breeze. “It definitely fulfilled that name,” he said. Fred Ebbecke, owner of Precision Tree Removal, stopped by the Walter residence Monday morning to provide an estimate to remove the debris. Ebbecke said he was focusing first on tree removals that were “creating a dangerous condition.” “We’re swamped,” he said. Working on downed trees Chris Myers, of Chris’s Tree Service in Mountain Top, was working with his crew at 665 Charles Lane in Kingston on Monday morning, chopping up a 60-foot-high maple that had uprooted and crashed onto a home. Calls started pouring into his business around 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Like Ebbecke, he was concentrating first on safety hazards. “I have 26 customers waiting,” Myers said. He appreciated the business, but felt sorry for his customers. Myers expected tree loss when he saw the weather predictions. “I knew we’d get some damage, but nothing like this.” Bob and Sandy Williams, owners of the Charles Lane property, were working on temporary repairs to their structure after the tree was removed. “Fortunately, there were no injuries. Property and contents can be replaced,” Bob Williams said.

In Exeter, Bill Whyte loaded branches and limbs from his Exeter Avenue property into a borrowed dump truck. A tree limb broke off and landed on the power line in front of his home, knocking out power around 5 a.m. Sunday. Power was restored around 1:30 p.m. Sunday. He used a chainsaw to cut the wood into manageable sections, sweat pouring from his forehead. “What are you going to do? It’s Mother Nature,” he said. Fallen trees and branches littered many area parks and cemeteries, including the Hollenback Cemetery in Wilkes-Barre. Several residents in Noxen Township, Wyoming County, were busy pumping out their basements Monday afternoon. At least two roads had washed away, and residents had no power. Bertha Ely, who has lived in a double-block on Stull Road since 1962, said the Hettis Run creek overflowed. The same flooding occurred in 2006, but she said she never had flooding on her property before that. Ely had basement pumps on both sides of the property, but they stopped working when the power went out. She watched helpless as the water filled her basement. It stopped at her ground-level kitchen door. Her grandson’s friend loaned her a generator Monday. “We’ve been pumping water out of the basement the last five hours,” she said. Ely worried how she’ll scrape together money for damages. She resisted the temptation to open her freezer, hoping the food would keep until power was restored. “I’m a widow on a fixed income. I don’t know what I’m going to do,” Ely said. Tunkhannock resident Brian Murphy owns two properties in the township, a rental unit and a house occupied by his mother. The basement of the rental unit on Stull Road was filled with water. A tree fell on the porch of his mother’s house. Murphy tried to bring a generator to his tenants Sunday, but couldn’t get through on two attempts because of road closures

SCHOOLS AFFECT E D Two area school districts have made scheduling changes due to problems associated with Hurricane Irene. The Lake-Lehman School District has postponed the start of school, which was scheduled to begin Monday, until Sept. 6, High School Principal Doug Klopp said. The Dallas School District has postponed the dedication of the new high school, which was supposed to take place Monday at 6 p.m., until Sept. 11 at 2 p.m., Superintendent Frank Galicki said. Klopp said Lake-Lehman opted to postpone the start of school because many communities within the district are still dealing with downed trees, water damage to homes and the loss of electricity. “Because of the storm we don’t have the ability to get students in. People are still without electricity and a lot of homes have water,” Klopp said. Galicki said Dallas postponed the new school dedication out of concern that some residents who would like to attend would not be able to because they are dealing with storm-related damage to their homes and roadways

between his home and Noxen. He delivered the generator Monday morning and believes government officials must do something to clear out Hettis Run so it won’t flood again. Corbett weighs in Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett held a press conference in Wyoming County on Monday near Mehoopany, to discuss damage he observed in a flyover. “I am amazed at what water can do to concrete and to asphalt and to the bridges we have, and it’s done quite a job here,” Corbett says. The state was first concentrating on reaching residents in isolated areas cut off by hurricane damage, Corbett said. He praised volunteers, saying they provided 90 percent of the assistance to state residents. Sarah Hite, a Times Leader staff writer, contributed to this report.

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta spent Monday touring portions of his congressional district and said he noticed Luzerne County fared much better than some neighboring counties. He also said he was awestruck by the different levels of damage Hurricane Irene brought to the region Sunday. Barletta, R-Hazleton, said the disparity of devastation from one county to the next, one community to the next, was stark. “As I was traveling around, you had some who were breathing a sigh of relief and others whose life will never be the same,” Barletta said during a stop at the Luzerne County Emergency Management Agency in Wilkes-Barre. At several stops earlier Monday in Monroe County, he said he heard about a man who was killed in Pocono Township when a tree fell on him. Just seconds earlier, the man had pushed his son out of the the toppling tree’s path. He also heard about a Pocono Township woman who was home typing on her computer when a tree fell on her house, landing on the rafters just above where she sat. He stood along the Delaware River in Shawnee-On-Delaware and saw the river – out of its banks – inundating the surrounding properties. Things were so bad in Luzerne County’s eastern neighbor that Barletta wrote to President Barack Obama urging him to free up federal funds for cleanup efforts in Monroe. “Monroe County bore the brunt of the inland impact of Hurricane Irene. Bodies of water flooded. High wind toppled trees and power lines. Roads and bridges first became impassable and then sustained structural damage. Homes and vehicles were flooded, or were crushed by falling trees and blowing debris,” Barletta wrote. “It is clear that federal assistance is critical to the public health and safety, to help the area recover economically and to ensure that the region is adequately prepared for future disasters.” Barletta was briefed on Luzerne County’s situation and learned, in summary, it could have been a lot worse. “We didn’t get that much rain

and we didn’t get the wind,” said Steve Bekanich, the county’s EMA director. He said the Back Mountain area saw the most damage in the county and plenty of power outages. Mountain Top, too, sustained damage from winds. Barletta said he was “super concerned” about Plymouth and Plymouth Township, which sustained infrastructure damage from the heavy rains of July 3, but Irene caused little to no damage in those communities. Bekanich said power outages and downed trees blocking roadways were the major issues in Luzerne County. Barletta said municipal leaders did a good job preparing residents, who for the most part did a good job making plans in case they lost power or needed to leave their home. “I was glad to see the flooding we were expecting to happen didn’t happen” in Luzerne County, Barletta said. But Barletta said he feels for municipalities that did see infrastructure damage, because they likely don’t have the money to pay for needed repairs. “This is not in (their municipal) budget,” Barletta said. Because of the hardship municipalities will have paying for necessary cleanups, state Rep. Phyllis Mundy wrote to Gov. Tom Corbett asking for him to add Luzerne County to the list of counties being considered for a disaster declaration that would make them eligible for federal recovery programs. Corbett asked Obama to declare a disaster in 11 Pennsylvania counties, but omitted Luzerne from the list. Mundy said Luzerne should be on the list because the county has declared a state of emergency in many of its municipalities, including eight in her legislative district. “Much destruction has been caused by fallen trees and flash flooding,” Mundy wrote. “As a result, thousands of residents are still without power and many are without water. A hurricane-related death has even been reported in our county.”

Fiancee and couple’s 4 children just feet way when tree kills W-B man By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

WILKES-BARRE – The fiancée of a city man who was killed when a tree crushed his camper said she and the couple’s four children were standing just a few feet away and narrowly escaped by fleeing through a door. Tina Wydra said Monday neither she nor Richard Shotwell heard anything in the moments before the tree crashed through the rear sleeping quarters of their camper at around 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the Hidden Lake Campground in Hunlock Creek. “It just came out of nowhere,”

Wydra said in an interview Monday at the North Hancock Street home the couple shared. “The walls started shakShotwell ing, He tried to move, but God was quicker than he was.” Shotwell, 41, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Luzerne County Coroner’s Office. The death, which has been ruled accidental, is among five in Pennsylvania that have been attributed to Hurricane Irene.

Wydra, 38, said she and the children had left the camper a short time before the accident to see if another tree they heard crash down had struck any other campers. They returned to their camper, and Richard told her he wanted to take a nap. “We heard this big crash and went to check it out. That woke us up, thank God, because it was not long after that the tree came through,” she said. “I’m just thankful it didn’t happen in the middle of the night or the kids would have lost their mother, too.” Wydra said she and her daugh-

ter were walking toward the back of the camper when they felt the walls move. Richard was awakened by the movement and tried to get out of the bed, but it was too late. “I pushed my daughter out of the way and tried to grab him to help him get out of bed faster, but I couldn’t get to him,” she said. Fellow campers grabbed chainsaws and started cutting away the tree while Wydra and others tried to lift debris off of him. “I was screaming for him and he wasn’t answering me. I knew in my head when I was screaming and he wasn’t answering that he

was gone,” she said. Wydra said the family had weathered the storm Saturday night and believed everything was OK. The rain had stopped, and there was only a slight amount of wind, she said. They were thinking of leaving earlier that morning, but decided to stay to clean up storm debris. Wydra said she and Richard had been together for four years. The couple have four children, two 12-year-olds, a 15-year-old and 9-year-old, from prior relationships. Richard had worked at Offset Paperback in Dallas the past 10 years.

News of Shotwell’s death hit fellow campers hard, said Sharon Kuklewicz, who has a camper at the site. Kuklewicz said her 6year-old grandson, Caden, had been playing with two of Shotwell’s children the day before. Wydra said family members are doing the best they can to cope with the loss. She said she is thankful for the support she has received from the campgrounds owners, as well as fellow campers. “Everyone has been so helpful today and yesterday,” she said. “It’s just a wonderful campground.” For his obituary, see Page 8A.








Eagles give Vick $100M Team and quarterback agree to terms on six-year, $100 million contract with $40M guaranteed.

By ROB MAADDI AP Pro Football Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick is really back on top now. Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed on a six-year contract on Monday that again makes the Pro Bowl quarterback one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.


The end of an era for Yanks

INSIDE: More NFL, Page 5B

A source familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press the deal is worth $100 million, including about $40 million guaranteed. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because terms weren’t released. Vick has come a long way since spending 18 months in federal prison on dogfighting charges. He led the Eagles to the NFC East title last year, was the starting quarterback in the Pro Bowl and was the AP Comeback Player of the Year. Vick was due to earn slightly more than

$16 million this season after the Eagles designated him the franchise player in February. He’ll make a little less, possibly giving the Eagles salary cap flexibility to give Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson an extension. The 31-year-old Vick joined the Eagles in 2009, and played sparingly as the thirdstring QB behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb. He started last year as the backup, but forced his way into the starting role with his exceptional performances after Kolb got hurt in the season opener.

Loss in second game of doubleheader stops team’s run of four straight division titles.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s drive for a fifth straight International League North Division championship came to an end on Monday night. The Yankees split a doubleheader with Pawtucket on Monday, winning the first game 3-0, but when they lost the second game 2-0, they were officially eliminated from the race for the division championship. It will mark the first time in the team’s five-year existence that it will not win the division crown. The Yankees still have a slim chance of claiming the I.L. Wild YANKEES Card berth, but that could end today if they lose to Lehigh Valley in RED SOX Allentown. Their elimination number in that race is just one, meaning any total of IronPigs – or Gwinnett wins – or Yankees losses totaling that number will result in elimination. SWB won the first game 3-0 behind a strong pitching performance from Manny Banuelos, the organization’s top pitching prospect. The lefty pitched a completegame shutout only allowing one hit in a seven-inning effort. He struck out six and only walked two batters as he evened his record to 2-2 this season for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He didn’t allow a hit until Jose Iglesias singled to lead off the top of the sixth. Banuelos threw 98 pitches, 59 for strikes. Banuelos got help offensively from Jesus Montero, the No. 1 overall prospect for the Yankees. The catcher, who had two of the team’s five hits in the first game, slugged a solo home run – his 18th of the year – in the bottom of the first to put the Yankees ahead 1-0. Greg Golson scored on a wild pitch in the fifth as the Yankees extended the lead to 2-0. Banuelos got another insurance run in the bottom of the sixth

Late rally for new ownership comes up short


Maria Sharapova reacts while playing Heather Watson during the first round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York on Monday.

NEW YORK — Trailing big in the first round of the U.S. Open, Maria Sharapova thought — well, no, she was certain — that she’d pull through if she could push her inexperienced opponent to a third set. And Sharapova was right. Shrieking as loudly as ever, Sharapova came back from a set and a break down against 19-yearold Heather Watson of Britain to win 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 on Monday, improving to12-0 this year in matches that went the distance. “It’s just a matter of belief within myself, that no matter how well or bad or good I’m playing, or my opponent is playing, I know I can tough it out,” the No. 3-seeded Sharapova said after her 21⁄2-hour victory. “No matter what the situation is, I have the belief.” That self-confidence comes not merely from her success in three-setters this season, but also from three Grand Slam titles, including the 2006 U.S. Open. It’s the sort of track record the 102ndranked Watson hopes to have one day; Monday’s match was only her fifth at a major tournament. Sharapova won six Grand Slam matches at Wimbledon alone this summer, reaching the final there before losing to Petra Kvitova. Fresh off that triumph, Kvitova — a 21-year-old from the Czech Republic seeded No. 5 in Flushing Meadows — failed to follow it up, flopping at the U.S. Open with a 7-6 (3), 6-3 loss to 48thSee OPEN, Page 7B


Expectations are running high for Panthers’ stalwart Lindsey The Associated Press

INSIDE T O D AY Don’t miss our 32-page full color special Penn State Preview section, highlighting the 25th anniversary of the 1986 championship team.

PITTSBURGH — Pitt linebacker Brandon Lindsey is no stranger to high expectations. It comes with the territory in his family. Lindsey’s father, John, played basketball at Memphis while his older brother, Willie, was a defensive back at Northwestern. “I come from an athletic family,” said Brandon Lindsey, who will transition from defensive end to outside linebacker this season for the Panthers. “They tell me all the time, ‘You have to be the best from Aliquippa to be the best in the house.’"

Lindsey flourished while replacing injured Greg Romeus at defensive end last fall. His performance didn’t go unnoticed. He’s on a slew of preseason award lists and the 6-foot-2, 250pound senior hopes to fulfill such lofty expectations and cement his status as one of the nation’s top defenders. The second team All-Big East pick recorded 51 tackles — 17 1/2 for a loss — and 10 sacks as a down lineman in the Panthers’ 4-3 scheme a season ago. Now, in first-year coach Todd GraSee PITT, Page 7B


Pitt’s Brandon Lindsey is expected to start at outside linebacker this season.

ow many good guys does it take to fix a bad deal? A local businessman is one of

them. A proposal put forth by Steve Vale last week would have solved a plethora of problems for the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees. The Abington area eye doctor rounded up a group of local investors in an attempt to purchase the management rights to the Triple-A Yankees for $15 million. That offer promised to generate more money, more business investments and more security for Northeastern Pennsylvania’s beleaguered baseball franchise. Lackawanna County commissioners Corey O’Brien and Mike Washo can do the math. But they can’t crack the equation. As hard as they’ve tried to sweeten a sour mix, they’re still hamstrung by an agreement signed into effect by convicted felon Bob Cordero, the former Lackawanna County Commissioner who gave away our guarantee of hosting a Triple-A baseball team. That was just one of the curveballs Cordero threw at Scranton-area taxpayers, and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre franchise co-owner Luzerne County never even saw it coming. “Luzerne County never wanted to accept that agreement, either,” Luzerne County commissioner Steve Urban said. Talk about a wild pitch. Now the team’s current operating partnership between Mandalay and the New York Yankees is in the process of purchasing rights the franchise for $14.6 million, again without the consent of Luzerne County. Which is partly why Luzerne County entered into litigation to claim what an original franchise agreement states is its fair share – nearly half of any franchise sale price. That’s almost $7 million Lackawanna County won’t have for its planned $40 million refurbishment of PNC Field. Vale’s plan would have stopped Luzerne County’s lawsuit, assured the franchise remained in local hands and added more fun to Scranton/WilkesBarre’s games with more giveaway days and promotions. The idea seemed smoother than Scranton/Wilkes-Barre outfielder Greg Golson cruising to catch fly balls. But a few flies got caught in the ointment. The $20 million in state funding for PNC Field’s reconstruction is specifically targeted for the building the New York Yankees Triple-A team will play in. Mandalay and the Yankees don’t want to relinquish management rights if they purchase the franchise. And Lackawanna County commissioners fear the International League would have grounds to remove Northeastern Pennsylvania’s franchise if they backed out of a verbal agreement with Mandalay and the New York Yankees now. It appears we’re backed into a corner. “If the county backs out of the deal,” Vale said O’Brien told him, “you have a problem with the International League, you have a problem with the Yankees and you may have a problem with the state of Pennsylvania.” Vale got involved to solve problems, not cause them. So he backed out, withdrawing the offer from his management group just days after presenting it to the Lackawanna County Stadium Authority. “I don’t want to be responsible for the Yankees leaving and us losing our International League franchise,” Vale said. He thought he was coming in to save the day. But he learned how difficult it is to win after entering a losing battle. Even when you bring the right stuff.

Tonight’s $24,000 Claiming Handicap Pace is once again a highly competitive race, that’s why I am going to take a shot with Border Fighting (5-1 morning line). The three-year old gelded son of I Am A Fool was just claimed out of last week’s race by training guru Lou Pena. Lou’s success first start off the claim has been absolutely remarkable and I think that this George Napolitano driven pacer falls right into that strong chance category. He’s shown plenty of talent throughout the year facing quality three-year old stock, is poised and ready to score right out of the box for Pena in that night race feature..

Victorino’s HR leads Phillies The Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Shane Victorino hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the eighth inning Monday night, and Cole Hamels was solid in his return from the disabled list, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Victorino snapped an 0-for-11 slump with his homer off righthander Homer Bailey (7-6), improving the Phillies to 4-1 against Cincinnati this season. Hamels held the Reds to two hits — one a misplayed fly ball — in six innings. Antonio Bastardo (6-0) fanned three in his one inning of relief. Dave Sappelt’s infield single drove in a run in the eighth, cutting it to 3-2 Ryan Madson gave up a hit in the ninth before finishing it off for his 24th save in 26 chances. Mets 2, Marlins 1 Mets 5, Marlins 1

NEW YORK — Dillon Gee rebounded from a wretched start and the New York Mets, back on the field following a two-day break because of Hurricane Irene, finished off a doubleheader sweep of the Florida Marlins with a victory. R.A. Dickey shut down the sluggish Marlins in the opener,

pitching seven spotless innings in a 2-1 victory for his first win since July 25. Mets starters had tossed 21 consecutive scoreless innings before Gee (12-5) gave up a home run to Greg Dobbs in the sixth. Jose Reyes scored a run and committed an error in his return from the disabled list. A boy in the stands got hurt in the ninth inning of the opener when Dobbs hit a line drive into the right-field seats, just beyond the New York dugout. Astros 7, Pirates 4

HOUSTON — Carlos Lee hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning, Wandy Rodriguez struck out a career-high 13 and the Houston Astros rallied past the Pittsburgh Pirates. Trailing 3-2 in the seventh, a fielder’s choice grounder by J.D. Martinez tied the score and Lee extended his hitting streak to 10 games with his 14th homer off Jose Veras, putting the Astros ahead for the first time. Rodriguez struck out six of the first nine batters he faced and didn’t allow a hit until Josh Harrison led off the fourth with a double and Andrew McCutchen followed with his 19th homer.

BALTIMORE — Freddy Garcia returned from the disabled list to pitch six innings of two-hit ball, Nick Swisher homered and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 Monday night earn a split of the four-game series. It was New York’s second straight win without third baseman Alex Rodriguez and shortstop Derek Jeter. Rodriguez will join the team in Boston on Tuesday after getting an MRI on his sore left thumb in New York, and Jeter rested a bruised right knee but was available “in case of an emergency,” manager Joe Girardi said. Mark Teixeira doubled in a run for the Yankees, who moved within 11⁄2 games of the first-place Red Sox in the AL East. Mark Reynolds and J.J. Hardy homered for Baltimore, which was seeking to win a four-game series against New York for the first time since 1997. Royals 9, Tigers 5

DETROIT — Salvador Perez and Alcides Escobar hit backto-back homers and the Kansas City Royals beat the first-place Detroit Tigers. Alex Gordon also homered and Johnny Giavotella added a bases-loaded double for the Royals, who came in 181⁄2 games behind Central Division leaders. Luke Hochevar (9-10) ended a four-start winless streak. He gave up five runs on eight hits in seven innings. Max Scherzer (13-8) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and a walk in three-plus innings to drop to 2-2 in August. Both losses were to the Royals. Indians 2, Athletics 1

CLEVELAND — Carlos Santana homered and David Huff and four relievers combined to limit the Oakland Athletics to five hits in the Cleveland Indians’ win. Huff (2-2) gave up three hits over six scoreless innings to win for the first time in six starts, since beating Minnesota in his season debut on July 18. Chris Perez worked a perfect

ninth for his 30th save in 34 chances for Cleveland, which has won three of four. Santana hit his 20th homer to give Cleveland a 2-0 lead in the seventh inning against Brandon McCarthy (7-7), who lost for the second time in nine starts since July 15. It was only the eighth homer allowed by the right-hander and seventh without a runner on base. Blue Jays 7, Rays 3

TORONTO — Jose Bautista hit his 38th home run, Ricky Romero won his sixth straight decision and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays to avoid a four-game sweep. Adam Lind added a two-run homer as Toronto snapped a season-high four-game losing streak and overcame a twohomer night from Rays designated hitter Johnny Damon. Bautista tied Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson for the major league lead in homers with a solo drive in the sixth that hit off the facing of the third deck in left. Romero (13-9) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. The left-hander, who walked four and struck out two, has not lost since July 16 against New York. White Sox 3, Twins 0

CHICAGO — Mark Buehrle pitched four-hit ball into the eighth inning and Tyler Flowers drove in two runs as the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins. The White Sox have won four straight and improved to two games above .500 for the first time since April 13. They also moved within five games of the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers. Buehrle (11-6) pitched around two walks in 7 2-3 innings and struck out four. He won his 159th game, tying him for sixth on the White Sox’s all-time list. Buehrle has allowed only one earned run in 30 2-3 innings this season against the Twins and has 27 wins in his career against Minnesota. He has more wins against the Twins than any other active pitcher has against a single opponent.

A-Rod sent home for MRI; Jeter’s knee still hurts The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez returned to New York on Monday to have an MRI on his left thumb, and the result “came out good,” according to manager Joe Girardi. Rodriguez sat out Sunday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles after playing in the first half of the split-doubleheader. He was poised to meet the Yankees in Boston on Tuesday for the start of a three-game series. “He’s day to day,” Girardi said. “I don’t know if he’ll be able to play (Tuesday). His thumb, we got to let it heal, so I can’t tell you exactly when he’s going to be back. It’s just when he feels better.” Asked if A-Rod would be available at all in Boston, Girardi replied, “I sure hope so. It just depends on how the thumb responds to treatment. He came back and he seemed to irritate it a little bit more, we just have to be smart about it. I think it bothers him probably more hitting.” Shortstop Derek Jeter was out of the starting lineup Monday against the Orioles for a second straight game. He fouled a ball of his right knee in the third inning of the opener Sunday and sustained a bruised kneecap. The knee swelled up between games, and although it was better Monday, Jeter was not ready to play a full nine innings. 182;AniSanchez, Florida, 168;Greinke, Milwaukee, 162;Hamels, Philadelphia, 162.

Tiger will play in Tour’s Fall Series for 1st time By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

NORTON, Mass. — Tiger Woods will play the Open in California the first week of October, his first time competing in the PGA Tour’s Fall Series as he tries to get his game ready for the Presidents Cup. The Open is Oct. 6-9 at CordeValle Golf Club, about 45 minutes south of his alma mater at Stanford. “I always enjoy competing in my home state, and this tournament fits my schedule perfectly,” Woods said Monday on his website. “I’m looking forward to seeing some old friends.” Woods said a week ago he


might add a tournament because of his limited schedule this year brought on by leg injuries. He chose a tournaWoods ment from the Fall Series that he has never played. The Open, in only its fifth year, was one of the more exciting tournaments of the Fall Series last year. Rocco Mediate holed out for eagle in each of the four rounds, including the 17th hole in the final round, for a oneshot win. It also offers a $5 million purse, the richest among

events after the FedEx Cup is over. “John Fry and his company have supported the tour, and I’ve heard good things about the event and the golf course,” Woods said. “One of my goals this year was to participate in a tournament I hadn’t played before. And now I will.” Woods has played only eight PGA Tour events this year because of injuries to his left knee and Achilles’ tendon. He went four months without completing a tournament — from the Masters in April to the Bridgestone Invitational in August — so he could make sure his injuries were fully healed. He said at Firestone

that his leg felt as good as it had in years. His results raised questions about his golf, however. He tied for 37th at Firestone, then missed the cut at the PGA Championship, the first time he had ever finished outside the top 100 in a major. When he plays the Open, it will be his first event in six weeks, although Woods is to play in a one-day exhibition in upstate New York on Wednesday to support Notah Begay’s charity work. “It’s been a long time between the PGA and Frys, and I’ll be anxious to compete,” Woods said. Fred Couples said last week he

told Woods he would be a captain’s pick for the Presidents Cup, even though he was 28th in the standings and had been out of golf for much of the summer, missing two majors. Couples said he wanted Woods to play more before the Australian Open in November, a week before the Presidents Cup. Even though there was speculation about Woods going to Disney or Las Vegas — two tournaments he had won as a rookie — the Open had been a possibility all along. The tournament consultant is Duke Butler, a former business executive with the PGA Tour who had come out of retirement

in 2007 to help launch the AT&T National, which supports Woods’ foundation. “This is a good start,” Butler said. “We’d like to think that players and caddies and fans who have been here have enjoyed it, and they’ve been spreading the word.” It likely will be the only Fall Series event that Woods plays. He is hosting the first Tiger Woods Invitational a week after the Open at Pebble Beach to raise money for his foundation. Proceeds from the threeday event on the Monterey Peninsula will support college-access programs for underprivileged youth.



A&M gets letter from conference

Race for the Chase heating up


By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M received a letter from Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe on Monday outlining the withdrawal procedure should the Aggies decide to leave the league. University spokesman Jason Cook said the letter “outlines the withdrawal procedures according to the financial provisions of the Big 12 bylaws and mutual waivers of legal claims.” Cook wouldn’t provide any other details of the letter or comment on what A&M’s next step might be. The Aggies are interested in joining the Southeastern Conference and the letter comes less than a week after they formally told Beebe they are exploring their options and asked for the conference to outline the process if they decide to leave. The league’s board of directors addressed the possible departure of the Aggies this weekend. “I certainly appreciate the discussion among the Big 12 presidents/chancellors and the expression of their desire for Texas A&M to remain in the conference,” Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin said in a statement. “We all agree that Texas A&M is an extremely valuable institution; thus, it is incumbent upon me, as the president of the university, to ensure that we are in a position to enhance our national visibility and future financial opportunity.” Loftin added this is a “complex and long-term decision,” but “it is not our intent to prolong our conference exploration for an extended period of time.” The SEC said earlier this month it was happy with its current 12-school membership but left the door open to expansion. Loftin then received authority from the board of regents to take any action he deems necessary in terms of realignment. There is concern that a departure by the Aggies could jeopardize the future of the Big 12, which is down to 10 teams after Nebraska (Big Ten) and Colorado (Pac-12) left the league last July. Loftin has said the Aggies would consider how their departure would impact the future of Big 12 before any decision is made. The Big 12 would need to find a team to replace the Aggies if they exit the conference and there has been a lot of speculation about possible schools. So far, the only school to publicly express interest in moving to the Big 12 is SMU. Athletic director Steve Orsini said he’s had informal talks with Big 12 officials for some time to inform them of the school’s improvements and growth.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kevin Harvick has clinched at least a wild-card berth in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Harvick was not listed among drivers who had clinched after Saturday night’s race at Bristol because there are still scenarios where he could fall outside of the top 10 in points. Further review Monday by NASCAR determined his three victories this season have earned him at minimum one of the two wild cards. Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards clinched berths on Saturday night. That leaves seven spots open to be claimed over the next two races, at Atlanta and Richmond. Drivers would prefer to make it into the Chase by being inside the top 10 in the standings, which will award them bonus points based on their “regular season” victories. The two wild cards will be awarded to the drivers outside the top 10 with the most victories providing they are ranked inside the top 20 in points. The wildcard positions will not receive bonus points when the 12 drivers are re-seeded for the Chase. After Saturday night’s race, Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin were in position to claim the two wild cards. Keselowski is ranked 11th in points with three victories, and Hamlin is ranked 13th in points with one win. He currently would bump 12th-place driver Clint Bowyer, who is winless, out of the Chase. NASCAR said Monday that Harvick and Jeff Gordon can guarantee spots in the top 10 this Sunday at Atlanta with a finish of 40th; a finish of 41st and at least one lap led; or a finish of 42nd and the most laps led. Ryan Newman, who is currently 73 points ahead of Keselowski, can guarantee a spot in the top 10 with at least a finish of 20th at Atlanta; or 21st and lead at least one lap; or 22nd and lead the most laps. Kurt Busch, who is currently 60 points ahead of Keselowski, can guarantee a top-10 spot with at least a finish of seventh at Atlanta; or eighth and lead at least one lap; or ninth and lead the most laps. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is 39 points ahead of Keselowski, and Tony Stewart is 21 points ahead of Keselowski. Both can clinch a spot inside the top 10 by widening their margins to 49 points over the 11th-place driver. Both are winless this season and in danger of being bumped from the Chase if they fall outside the top 10. Keselowski, who wants the three bonus points that are awarded for each victory in Chase seeding, wasn’t banking on passing Stewart for 10th place in the standings.

Seven spots remain open with just two races left before the Chase for the championship.

The correspondence outlines the procedure school must take to leave Big 12.

ninth post but couldn’t hold on, fading in the final yards as Idyllic roared to victory by 31⁄4 lengths over Myluvmylife. Swinging Beauty was third in the 1-mile race for 3-year-old filly pacers.

Garrett’s way continues during Cowboys camp Five-time pro-bowler Gurode was released Monday By JAIME ARON AP Pro Football Writer

IRVING, Texas — Andre Gurode was warned, just like everyone else on the Dallas Cowboys. Under first-year coach Jason Garrett, jobs will be won and lost based on how players perform in camp and preseason games, not by what they’ve done in the past. Having made the Pro Bowl the last five years wasn’t enough for Gurode to keep his roster spot. The Cowboys cut the veteran center Monday for a variety of reasons that included his age and salary, his decision to have knee surgery so late in the offseason that it sidelined him for the start of camp and by the performance by an undrafted, unproven second-year player in Gurode’s absence.

“What we’ve said right from Day 1 is it doesn’t really matter where you came from or what you’ve done in the past,” Garrett said. “We’re going to try our best as coaches and evaluators to see what you’re doing right now and see what you can do for us going forward. We try to do that individually, we try to do that collectively. We’re not in the business of trying to send a message to the rest of the team. We’re trying to make the best decision for our team.” Still, the decision/message was clear to everyone, from veterans who may feel comfortable to rookie free agents still trying to prove themselves. “That’s the way it should be,” veteran linebacker Keith Brooking said. “I think when you can create that environment and that message is sent throughout

your team - and it’s not just a message, there are examples that run through the team - I think that’s a really good thing for everyone. That’s what pushes you, that’s what makes you better. " The Cowboys already had cut several other high-priced veterans, including linemen Marc Colombo and Leonard Davis. By adding Gurode to the list, Tony Romo’s blockers will include three inexperienced linemen: Phil Costa at center, top pick Tyron Smith at right tackle and seventh-rounder Bill Nagy at left guard. Costa is the guy whose strong play pushed Gurode out the door. A hard worker as a rookie last year, he played in four games and started once, at left guard. He became the first-team center at the start of camp because Gurode was on the physically unable to perform

list. Gurode got a chance to reclaim the job once he was healthy, moving straight to the first team and starting the second preseason game. But the Cowboys decided he wasn’t so much better than Costa that he was worth keeping, not when they could also save $5.5 million against the salary cap by cutting Gurode. They liked the idea of finding out what they might have in a 24-year-old instead of relying on a 32-year-old coming off knee surgery. “We felt like it was best move for us right now,” Garrett said. “There’s nothing purposeful in saying, ‘We’ve got to AP PHOTO get rid of all the old guys and sign all the young guys.’ That’s not what we’re think- Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is ing. We’re just trying to make our team making players earn their starting jobs this preseason. as good as it can be right now.”

Denver QB battle now shaping up

Will Batch or Dixon claim the No. 2 spot?

Brady Quinn is expected to start Thursday with Orton penciled in as No. 1.

Reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year is getting notorious for making dirty hits.

ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The Associated Press

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Ndamukong Suh is answering questions again about his style of play. The Detroit Lions defensive end hasn’t been asked by the one person who concerns him. “I’ll consider myself a dirty player when my mom calls me a dirty player,” he said Monday. Suh is back in the spotlight after an incident with Patriots lineman Logan Mankins during a post-whisSuh tle scuffle in Detroit’s 34-10 preseason win Saturday night. Suh pointed out that an official saw the entire play and that they had discussed Suh’s attempt to get Mankins away from the Lions’ Lawrence Jackson. Suh was not called for a penalty, while Mankins received a personal foul for grabbing Jackson’s face mask. “I don’t regret it at all,” Suh said. “What I find funny about the situation is that I wasn’t the one called for the 15-yard face-mask penalty, and I also didn’t know you could get fined for defending a teammate.” He said he had a “great talk about the play with the referee who was right there.” “He said in the future, I should let them handle those situations, but that he understood exactly what I was trying to do,” he said. Lions coach Jim Schwartz saw the latest incident the same way. “He was trying to get someone off one of his teammate’s face mask,” Schwartz said. “He didn’t get a flag and the other guy got a flag.” Suh might see himself as a peacemaker when it comes to his teammates, but his motives are totally different when it comes to opposing quarterbacks. The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was fined $20,000 this preseason after roughing up Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. And he was fined twice last year for hits on Chicago’s Jay Cutler during the regular season and Cleveland’s Jake Delhomme in a preseason game. This isn’t exactly an image Suh shies away from, either. “Last year, we earned respect, but this year we want fear,” Suh told a CBS Sports reporter during Saturday’s broadcast. “We want quarterbacks to fear us, and we want offensive lines to fear us.” Corey Williams plays next to Suh at defensive tackle, and he agreed entirely with the sentiment. “We don’t want anyone to get comfortable against us,” he said. “We hit Tom Brady a lot of times Saturday — more than he’s used to getting hit — and he didn’t like it. That’s our goal.”


Pittsburgh quarterbacks Charlie Batch, left, and Dennis Dixon will be competing on Thursday against Carolina for the right to be Ben Roethlisberger’s backup to start the season.

Backup battle begins for Steelers By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon don’t have to worry about losing their jobs anymore, even if the Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterbacks would rather have taken a different path to a steady paycheck. Byron Leftwich’s gruesome broken left arm suffered in the third quarter of a 34-16 win over Atlanta on Saturday potentially ended the veteran’s season and gave both Batch and Dixon a reprieve from an unforgiving numbers game. The Steelers started training camp with four quarterbacks on the roster, with either Batch or Dixon certain to be jettisoned before the season opener against Baltimore on Sept. 11. The duo has spent the last month auditioning for the No. 3

“You still have to go out and prove to Coach (Mike) Tomlin that you’re capable of being the next guy to step in and it never ends.”

Steelers QB Charlie Batch

spot behind Leftwich and Ben Roethlisberger. Now they head into the preseason finale on Thursday at Carolina looking to see who will be Roethlisberger’s understudy. The anxiety of being cut is gone, sure, but not the competition. “You still have to go out and prove to Coach (Mike) Tomlin that you’re capable of being the next guy to step in and it never ends,” Batch said. “It’s not going to end at the end of this week ... or through the course of the season.”

Tomlin is in no hurry to choose and didn’t rule out Leftwich’s eventual return. The former firstround pick underwent surgery on Monday morning, less than 48 hours after his left (non-throwing) arm was pinned awkwardly to the turf while sliding for extra yardage against the Falcons. Batch says it was difficult to watch his good friend writhing in pain as he was taken off the field. Yet Batch also knows the job goes on, leaving he and Dixon in a familiar position. A year ago, the two spent camp jockeying for position behind

Leftwich, dubbed the starter after Roethlisberger was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Only Leftwich never made it to the regular season after injuring his knee. Dixon started the opener against Atlanta and played well before going down a week later with a knee injury of his own that eventually sent him to injured reserve. In stepped Batch, who turned back the clock by helping keep the team afloat until Roethlisberger returned. A year later, the two players on opposite ends of their careers are still going at it. The 36-year-old Batch is simply hoping to hang on while the 25-year-old Dixon is anxious to prove he’s ready to be a starter even if he’s well aware it will have to happen in someplace other than Pittsburgh.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos coach John Fox isn’t revealing his quarterback rotation for Thursday night’s preseason finale at Arizona. It’s likely Brady Quinn will get the start with Kyle Orton sitting this one out. Quinn has outperformed Tim Tebow all summer and didn’t play last week against Seattle, when Tebow finished up with another inconsistent Quinn performance. With Quinn likely having secured the job as Orton’s primary backup, the bigger question Thursday is whether he’ll split snaps with Tebow or if Adam Weber plays. Weber, an undrafted free agent from Minnesota, has been impressive at practice but may not get his shot to play in the preseason because the Broncos would like to slip him through waivers onto their practice squad. Playing him could expose him to other teams and quash those plans. Weber said he anticipates playing a couple of series at least, but if the Broncos decide not to expose him, he’s fine with that. “You just can’t worry about that stuff,” Weber said. “My whole focus is continuing to get better every day and hopefully getting a chance to go out there and play and show these coaches and everybody that I can perform. “I only try to focus on what I can do, and if I don’t get out there, I don’t get playing time, I try not to worry about that.” Weber said he hopes to stay in Denver, even if that means playing on the practice squad.

Jets beat Giants for bragging rights in one ugly game The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The preseason bragging rights for the New York metropolitan area belong to the Jets, although neither Rex Ryan’s team nor the Giants have much to be happy about. Mark Sanchez threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes and the Jets capitalized on two big special teams plays in 17-3 victory Monday night in a preseason game delayed two days by Hurricane Irene’s devastating march up the East Coast. Bilal Powell had a 1-yard TD run in the fourth quarter and the Jets defense intercepted Eli Manning twice in what probably will be the last major warmup for both teams’ starters before the





regular season. The Jets (2-1) will face the Eagles here Thursday. The Giants (1-2) finish their preseason at New England, also on Thursday. The chippy game featured the Giants’ Brandon Jacobs and the Jets’ Muhammad Wilkerson being ejected for a fight, a lot of penalties and enough bad plays to make Ryan and counterpart Tom Coughlin concerned with the

regular season less than two weeks away. The banged-up Giants also had defensive end Justin Tuck (stinger) and linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka (groin) leave the game with injuries. The Jets didn’t appear to have any major injuries in the exhibition. They did have more big plays in the game that was hyped as Plaxico Burress’ first meeting with the Giants since being released from prison. Unlike a week ago when he scored a touchdown, the Super Bowl hero was shut out. He didn’t catch any of the three pasAP PHOTO ses that Sanchez threw in his direction, and he even made the New York Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez looks up during the wrong call in the pregame coin second quarter of a preseason game between the New York Jets and the New York Giants Monday in East Rutherford, N.J. toss.

Outlook: One of many teams that have several players returning from last year, the Warriors are part of what makes the East Division such a force. The Warriors’ Rydzewski is a premier player in the conference and is someone to keep an eye on in 2011. Central Division


Home Course: Hollenback Golf Course (Par 36) Coach: Chris Buzinkai, 6th year 2010 Record: 0-10 Key Losses: Chris Schiel Key Players: Ryan Pavone, Sr.; Brian Klapat, Jr.; Alec Niemiec, Jr.; Jeffrey Chintalla, Jr.; Tyler Tyson, Sr.; Sean Paul Williamson, Fr.

Hanover Area

Home Course: Wyoming Valley Country Club (Par 35) Coach: Brian McDermott, 2nd year 2010 Record: 2-8 Key Losses: Rob Kost, Eric Killen Key Players: Chris Jones, Jr., Matt Kocher, Jr.; Fred Schiel, So.; Mike Steve, So.; Steve Dokas, Jr.; Matt Kuhl, So.; Kyle Cunard, Jr.; Dominic Vitale, Fr. Outlook: McDermott has 18 players on the roster this season and many of them played throughout the summer.

Holy Redeemer

Home Course: Wilkes-Barre Golf Club (Par 36) Coach: Art Brunn Jr., 22nd year overall; 5th at Holy Redeemer 2010 Record: 10-0 (North Division and WVC Champion) Key Losses: Mike Napkori, Donny DeRemer Key Players: Matt Slavoski, So.; Will Fulton, Sr.; Ryan DeRemer, Sr.; Chase Makowski, So.; Mariano Medico, So.; Mike Boland, So.; Brian Banas, So; John Kane, So.; John Yurkosky, So.; Eric Jones, Sr.; Allie Banks, Sr.; Ryan Crossin, Fr. Outlook: Expectations for the team are sky high both by the Royals themselves and other teams in the conference. They claimed the league title last year with just two seniors and have just three seniors this season. Most of the team is underclassmen so there’s not much reasoning as to why Redeemer can’t repeat the 2010 year.


Venus Williams serves against Vesna Dolonts during the first round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York, Monday.

ranked Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania. Kvitova is the first reigning Wimbledon women’s champion to lose her first match at the U.S. Open in the same season. Only three times had the Wimbledon winner bowed out as early as the third round in New York: Sharapova in 2004, Conchita Martinez in 1994, and Billie Jean King in 1973. “This is something new for me,” Kvitova said about her new status as Grand Slam champion. “I’ve felt a little pressure.” She was the only seeded woman to exit on Day 1 of the year’s last major tournament, joined on the way out by No. 15 Viktor Troicki of Serbia, a 3-6, 6-3, 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 loser against Alejandro Falla of Colombia. At night, 2000-01 U.S. Open

champion Venus Williams played her first match in two months and beat 91st-ranked Vesna Dolonts of Russia 6-4, 6-3. Williams hit six aces and 28 total winners against the weary Dolonts, who left Moscow at 4 a.m. EDT and arrived at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at 4 p.m., after having flights canceled Saturday and Sunday because of Tropical Storm Irene. “My game is built on my serve, and of course, I like to follow it up with a lot of aggressive play,” said Williams, who pulled out of recent tuneup tournaments because of a virus. “And it’s great to see a lot of those balls land in.” In the day’s last match in Arthur Ashe Stadium, 16-time major winner Roger Federer was to face 54th-ranked Santiago Giraldo of Colombia. Early winners included No. 8 Mardy Fish, who played his first U.S. Open match as the top-seeded American and beat Tobias Kamke 6-2, 6-2, 6-1; No. 9 Tomas Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon

runner-up; No. 13 Richard Gasquet; No. 22 Alexandr Dolgopolov; and No. 27 Marin Cilic, who eliminated19-year-old American Ryan Harrison 6-2, 7-5, 7-6 (6). “This is extremely different for me,” Fish said, “this feeling coming out here and trying to show everything you can, to show you’re the No. 1 guy, at least for this tournament. It’s been a lot of fun.” Advancing along with Sharapova to the second round were No. 2 Vera Zvonareva, a finalist last year at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open; 16-year-old Madison Keys of Boca Raton, Fla. — the youngest and, at 455th, lowestranked woman in the draw — who beat 37-year-old Jill Craybas 6-2, 6-4; and No. 12 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, who beat her younger sister Urszula Radwanska 6-2, 6-3. But surprise 2009 U.S. Open quarterfinalist Melanie Oudin of Marietta, Ga., lost 6-0, 7-6 (7) to Romina Oprandi of Italy, falling to 9-29 in 2011.

from nearby Hopewell High. “It’s hard thinking about all the greats that have come out of Aliquippa and living up to what they’ve accomplished,” Lindsey said. “It’s a lot of pressure, but it comes with the territory, being from there. You’re expected to be a great athlete and make things happen in college.” Lindsey had a pin inserted in his left shoulder after it popped out prior to a 23-17 loss at Notre Dame last year, though he never missed a game because of the injury. After sitting out spring practice and undergoing rehab for his shoulder — which Lindsey said hasn’t bothered him whatsoever since camp started — Lindsey has tackled his new role head on. Though he’s still listed in the team’s media guide as a defensive end, Lindsey will begin every play standing up — as opposed to firing out of a threepoint stance — and will assume myriad responsibilities, often dictated by the flow of the game.

So far, linebackers coach Randall McCray said Lindsey’s toughest adjustment has been dropping into pass coverage, something he rarely did as a defensive end. McCray also said that Lindsey has improved significantly at reading running backs and offensive linemen to decipher an opposing team’s blocking scheme. “He’s starting to understand the intricacies of the position,” McCray said, “and the role he’s trying to play.”


Home Course: Wilkes-Barre Golf Club (Par 36) Coach: Sean McLaughlin, 3rd year 2010 Record: 6-4 Key Losses: Rob Lehnart, Rob Reilly Key Players: Tony Morrash, Sr.; Will Amesbury, Jr.; Don Conrad, Jr.; Vito Pasone, Sr. Outlook: The roster isn’t very big for the Mohawks, but the players who will compete saw a lot of time last year on the team that was close to Holy Redeemer in score for two matches. The team will be in contention of most of its matches this season and should come close to or surpass the 2010 mark for wins Northern Division


Home Course: Irem Temple Country Club (Par 36) Coach: Tom Kilduff, 22nd year 2010 Record: 8-3 Key Losses: Zach Yursha, Nick Zabriski Key Players: Austin Smith, Sr.; Rudy Georgetti, Jr.; Ryan Georgetti, So.; Nigel Stearns; Justin Brojakowski; Outlook: Dallas is always near the top of the division and this season shouldn’t be any different as they have many returning players from a year ago.


Home Course: Huntsville Golf Club (Par 36) Coach: Tom Motovidlak, 4th year 2010 Record: 2-9 Key Losses: Jeff Heath Key Players: Nathan Rinehouse, Sr.; Robert Ide, Jr.; John Butler, Jr.; Nicholas Egan, So.; Jeffrey Carter, Jr.; Michael Murphy, Jr. Outlook: The Black Knights could be one of those teams that turn out to surprise some teams when all is said and done. They play in a tough division, but an improvement from last year’s record should be an easy task. At the end of the season, Lehman should be near the top of the division.

Wyoming Seminary

Home Course: Huntsville Golf Club and Applewood Golf Course (both par 36) Coach: Tim Foran, 6th year 2010 Record: 6-5 Key Losses: Evan Leas, Ronnie Rose, Christian Santarelli Key Players: Frank Henry, Jr.; John Zirnheld, So.; Gabi Coslett, So. Outlook: According to Foran, the team will have a rebuilding season with youth and not much experience.

Wyoming Valley West

Home Course: Irem Temple Country Club (Par 36) Coach: Gary Mack, 4th year 2010 Record: 10-1 (North Division Champion) Key Losses: Nick Humphreys, Steve Brand Key Players: Chris McCue, Jr., Colin Harrison, Jr.; Ryan Hettes, Sr.; Chris Nixon, Jr.; Andrew Crossin, So.; Nick Ostroski, Jr.; Leanne Dellarte, So.; Evan Pirello, Jr.; Adam Merieski, Sr. Outlook: Most of the team that claimed the divisional crown in 2010 has returned for another shot at a championship, including four starters. The teams in the Spartans’ division have also improved so the competition should be fun to watch. Valley West should be around the top of the division despite getting strong competition.

ham’s 3-4 system, Lindsey has become the team’s “Panther” linebacker, a defensive end/linebacker hybrid who plays the run, rushes the quarterback and drops back into pass coverage. “Brandon will be the main guy who impacts the quarterback,” Graham said. “We’ll move him around and make sure he adapts comfortably to what he’s doing.” It’s what’s required of players from powerful Aliquippa High, which provided a steady pipeline of impact players to the Panthers through the years.

ATLANTA — Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who was suspended from the league for having guns in a locker room with teammate Gilbert Arenas, plans to surrender to face a murder charge in a deadly Atlanta shooting, an attorney said Monday. Crittenton will fly from Los Angeles to Atlanta and should arrive early Tuesday, said lawyer Brian Steel. “He offered to turn himself in,” Steel told The Associated Press. “He’s not guilty. We look forward to getting it to the courts.” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported that Crittenton planned to surrender in Atlanta. Police earlier obtained a murder warrant for Crittenton in the Aug. 19 shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four young children. Police say Jones was walking with two men when she was shot and they believe one of the men with her was the target. Police spokesman Carlos Campos on Friday said the motive appears to be retaliation for a robbery in April, in which Crittenton was a victim. When asked about Steel’s statement that Crittenton planned to surrender, Atlanta police didn’t confirm it. “Mr. Crittenton is wanted for murder,” Sgt. Curtis Davenport said late Monday. “We will be pleased when he is taken into our custody in a peaceful manner.” When he was with the Washington Wizards in December 2009, Crittenton and Arenas had a dispute over a card game on a team flight. Two days later, Arenas brought four guns to the locker room and set them in front of Crittenton’s locker with a sign telling him to “PICK 1.” Crittenton then took out his own gun. Crittenton pleaded guilty in January 2010 to a misdemeanor gun charge and received a year of unsupervised probation. Arenas entered his guilty plea on Jan. 15. He served a short time in a halfway house. Steel said he was retained by Crittenton’s family on Monday morning.

Brandon Matthews is already the first three-time champion of the Tryba Preseason Tournament. Today, the Pittston Area star will try to become the first four-time winner as the ninth annual event will be held at Fox Hill Country Club. Matthews, who won a PIAA championship in 2010, is the favorite for the event. He is however expected to get challenged from Holy Redeemer sophomores Chase Makowski and Mariano Medico. Coughlin’s Shamus Gartley is a returning regional qualifier and is also expected to be near the top of the leaderboard. The Royals are also the favorite to claim the team title after winning the championship last year. Redeemer pulled out a close victory over Pittston Area to win the WVC league title last year as well. The Patriots should contend with the Royals once again as both teams have a slew of returning talent. There always seems to be a few surprises in this tournament One of them could come in the team race from Crestwood or Wyoming Valley West, which are both coming off division championships from a year ago. Here’s a closer look at every team in the Wyoming Valley Conference participating in today’s tournament and the season outlook for the participants.



Sagging confidence? The Conference Board’s monthly survey of consumers will show how much damage the stock market’s plunge this month has done to their confidence about the economy. The Dow rose or fell by 400 points in four straight days for the first time in its history, and the volatile market has investors on edge. That is combining with a weak job market to make everyone nervous. Economists expect the Consumer Confidence Index to fall to its lowest level since October.

Fed thinking

Home prices

A lot of questions came out of the Federal Reserve’s Aug. 9 meeting, and economists hope for answers from the minutes of the meeting. Among the questions: What “range of policy tools” did the Fed discuss to help the economy? How did the Fed come up with the “mid-2013” date, through which it pledged to keep interest rates at nearly zero? While the minutes “won’t provide all the answers, the report may include some interesting details,” Credit Suisse economists say.

Home prices are stuck at 2003 levels. The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index rose in May for a second month, but the gains have been tiny compared with the drop that began in 2006. June figures for the index arrive today. The weak job market means fewer people can afford homes, and tough lending requirements are shrinking the pool of buyers. Sales of new homes fell in July for a third month. Sales of previously occupied homes are also weak.






Analysts: Area jobless rate hike no cause for panic By ANDREW M. SEDER

Some local economic observers say the three-tenths of a percentage point increase in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region’s unemployment rate from June to July is not a cause for alarm because the year-over-year rate is down and the factors behind the monthly rise are easily explainable and were expected. Steven Zellers, an industry and business analyst with the state’s Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, noted many of the July job losses were seasonal and related to the operations of schools, including teaching aides, cafeteria and support staff, and bus drivers.

“Most everything in (the report) is typical seasonal movement,” Zellers said. “Usually it begins to improve in August when schools go back into session.” “Any time your unemployment rate goes up, it’s not good news,” he said, noting this occurs each July. The region’s 9.4 percent unemployment rate in July is well below last July’s 9.8 percent.The region’s 9.4 percent rate is again the highest in the state. The sluggish jobs picture has one economist concerned. Anthony Liuzzo, director of the master of business administration program at Wilkes University, said he had believed that a “double-dip recession” was not in

the cards. But after seeing the unemployment rate continue to rise locally and statewide and hover around 9 percent nationally, “I’m a little more concerned now than I was a few months ago,” he said. While the rate is better than last year, it’s not as good as he was hoping for. Liuzzo said the report tells him “we’ve got basically a stalled economy at this point.” “It’s frustrating and disheartening, especially for the people who are unemployed,” Liuzzo said. Zellers said June and July often lag because of the combination of education-related jobs being lost for the summer coupled with the high school and college stu-

dents and graduates entering the work force. Dana Harris, a Keystone College business professor, said the report has a big negative, the increase in the unemployment rate, but plenty of positives, too. “No one likes to see the unemployment rate go up,” Harris said, but noted that looking at the reports month-by-month only tells a small portion of the story. She said looking at the “long-run trend” is what economists do, and when you do that she said she sees positives. “Although you’re looking at an increase this month compared to the month before, if you look at the long-run trend, it is improving from year-to-year,” Harris said.

Storm can’t stop stocks Stocks rose broadly Monday, led by insurance companies, after it became clear that Hurricane Irene caused far less damage than many had feared. Trading volume, or the number of shares bought and sold, was the lowest since July 26 as many traders struggled to get to work in Lower Manhattan or were still on vacation. Utilities companies also rose after it became clear their storm-related expenses would be lower than earlier estimates. An increase in consumer spending also helped push stocks higher. The government reported that spending rose 0.8 percent in July. It was a sharp turnaround from June, when Americans spent less for the first time in nearly two years.

Obama names top adviser President Barack Obama named labor economist Alan Krueger to chair the White House Council of Economic Advisers Monday as the White House scrambles for solutions to repair an ailing economy ahead of the 2012 election. The president said he expected Krueger, a former Treasury Department official and Princeton economist, to provide him with unvarnished economic guidance, not partisan political advice. The announcement rounding out the president’s economic team comes a week ahead of Obama’s highly anticipated announcement on a new jobs initiative.

Treasury rates stable The Treasury Department auctioned $29 billion in three-month bills on Monday at a discount rate of 0.015 percent, the same as last week. Another $27 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.045 percent, also unchanged from last week. Separately, the Federal Reserve said the average yield for one-year Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable-rate mortgages, fell to 0.10 percent last week from 0.11 percent.

She said that although “it’s not as robust as an improvement, at least it’s an improvement.” The region’s seasonally adjusted total non-farm jobs remained unchanged in July from June at 254,000, but over the past year, that total is up by 2,000. Christine Jensen, the executive director of the CareerLink in Wilkes-Barre, said the number of people stopping in to the CareerLink office the past month or two has decreased but said the season, not a decrease in jobs, is the reason. She noted there is no shortage of available jobs in the county. She said her office receives notices of openings daily and urged those who are searching to stop in.

Help after the storm By EILEEN AJ CONNELLY AP Personal Finance Writer

NEW YORK — Homeowners in the East are picking up the soggy pieces and assessing the damage after Irene swept through. The storm touched communities in a dozen states and left an estimated $3 billion to $7 billion of mangled siding, downed trees and worse in its wake. If you had damage, the easiest way to begin a claim is by contacting your agent. Insurers also have toll-free hotlines to accept initial filings and most also will allow customers to start a claim online. A number of companies offer smartphone apps that can get the

process rolling, as well. Start the claims process as soon as possible. Check your policy to make sure you’re covered for hurricane damage, and what your hurricane deductible is. In areas where hurricanes are less common, deductibles can be high. Pictures are helpful, especially if they can be compared with “before” photos. Don’t throw away damaged items until an adjuster sees them. Items that are unsafe can be photographed and discarded if necessary. If the house can’t be occupied, make sure to keep receipts for any hotel rooms and any associated expenses.

Insurers expect homeowners to protect their property from further damage whenever possible. During this process, keep a list of any steps you’ve taken and a complete list of the supplies you’ve purchased. Homeowner’s insurance policies rarely cover flood-related damage. In almost all cases, separate flood insurance is required. If you don’t have flood insurance, there may be federal disaster assistance available. All of the states impacted by Irene declared disasters, many before the storm hit, which is required for federal help to kick in. That may come in the form of grants or low-cost loans.

WASHINGTON — If you’re angry that Wall Street speculators have been driving up the price you pay for gasoline, these same big financial investors now are pushing up the price of your cup of joe. Grocery shoppers have seen whopping increases this year in the price of a can of ordinary coffee, whether it’s a generic store brand or better-known ones such as Folgers and Maxwell House. Since spring, coffee has been selling at $7 to $8 a can in many parts of the country, or about twice the price of a gallon of gas. The retail price of coffee in July was up 20.7 percent over the same month last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which tracks changes in grocery store prices. Big coffee marketers have trimmed prices a bit for consumers in recent weeks, but the price of contracts for future delivery of coffee continues to rise unabated. What gives? Coffee-industry veterans blame financial speculators. They say they’re taking advantage of global supply hiccups to drive up coffee prices by adding volatility to the trading of contracts for future delivery of coffee. “It’s definitely not purely supply and demand; it’s way too volatile,” said Shawn Hamilton, the vice president of operations and a veteran coffee buyer for Java City in Sacramento, Calif. Experts say that global consumption of coffee is up, particularly in China and coffee-producing Brazil. There’s also been a weather-related dip in production from coffee-rich Colombia.

Updated Playbook tablet will be Blackberry with a touch of Droid BLACKBERRY MAKER Research In Motion has been in trouble for the last few years – a dwindling user base, an aging brand and slumping sales had all come together to make a perfect storm. After several attempts to rectify the situation – the release of a tablet device, several slightly more flashy phones and some tepid marketing campaigns, Blackberry has finally decided to throw in the towel and call in the Droids. Blackberry has announced that its Playbook tablet will get a software update that will allow the devices to run Android applications – although, in an odd twist, not the apps intended for tablet devices.

Zipcar’s uneven start

When Zipcar went public April 14, the stock in the car sharing company soared nearly 75 percent from its offering price of $18. It traded as high as $31.50 – and then began backtracking to its current $19 range as the stock market went into a correction. CEO Scott Griffith doesn’t seem fazed. He’s focusing on growth. Zipcar operates in more than 60 cities in the U.S., Canada and Britain and wants to further expand overseas. Griffith says he’s also concerned about keeping the entrepreneurial spirit alive in a company that has gone from 15 employees when he joined it eight years ago to 700. He spoke with The Associated Press recently. Some excerpts from the interview: It’s been four months since Zipcar went public. What’s the

long-term capital for a market that we thought was exciting. When you’re going public for all the right reasons, you don’t really have time to time the market. Good companies should be able to go public at any time.


SCOTT GRIFFITH main difference it has made in your job? I think the big challenge was, “How do I add 25 percent to my day to focus on Wall Street and investors and public company things?” I didn’t exactly have 25 percent of my day free, but if you have a strong team you can offload some of the things that you used to do. But for the first few months that can be a bitter and

unnatural act. So how do you feel about the stock price? The performance of the stock has been in lockstep with what we had hoped for. It’s not a friendly time to be a public company. But we’re a company that went public for all the right reasons. It wasn’t an exit for (the company’s initial) investors, it’s to supply

What was the most important thing you told your workers as the company prepared to go public? The biggest message is that this is the beginning of something new, not the end of something we used to do. We distributed options in the company, so they’re excited by the opportunity to grow shareholder value and they’ve got some skin in the game. The stock market is causing some anxiety and we’re getting questions about that. We tell them we need to focus on the long term and the rest will work itself out.

This month I’ve measured just over 12 inches of rain here in Luzerne County, our wettest August since 1955, when hurricanes Connie and Diane blew through. With the hurricane season expected to be more active than normal, I suppose our chances over the next 3 months of getting hit with another record rain event from the tropics is above average. Unfortunately, as man continues to develop our lands, increasing the acreage of impervious surface, the amount of runoff that causes flash flooding is increasing. Year by year the danger of flooding is getting worse. - Tom Clark

an you wobble your way to buns of steel? The popularity of “toning� shoes, whose unstable soles require you to work muscles harder to stay balanced, suggests consumers are banking on it. Sales of toning shoes, which cost from $70 to upwards of $200 and have enlisted celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Wayne Gretzky to tout their fitness benefits, soared to $736 million in 2010 from $145 million the year before thanks to the entry of more than a dozen brands into the market, according to market research firm NPD Group. The ads for many of the shoes, showcasing women with enviably sculpted legs (there are toning shoes for men but the customer base is overwhelmingly female), say that wearing them will help youburnmorecalories,tonemusclesand improve posture. Most manufacturers compare the experience of wearing their shoes to walking on sand. Foot doctors for years have been prescribing shoes with unstable soles to help

Q: Do you have any simple strategies to help me eat less and to feel less hungry? I eat the right foods — I just eat too much! — M.A., Orlando, Fla. A: From research conducted by Dr. Brian Wansink of Cornell University, what and how much we eat is influenced by who we’re eating with, container/bowl/plate size, colors, smells, shapes, cupboards and simple distractions such as TV or conversation. In one example, Wansink’s research team worked with two groups of volunteers: one who had an endless bowl of soup, and a second group who ate from a regular bowl. Those in the endless bowl group ate 73 percent more food until they thought they were full, compared to those in the normal bowl group. This confirmed Wansink’s hypothesis that our eyes are the main factor in determining when we’re full. He calls this “mindless eating.� Another example involved the use of fresh and stale popcorn in different size containers. In this study, Wansink found that those with the extra-large containers ate 45 percent more fresh popcorn than those with fresh popcorn in large containers. What’s even more interesting is that the stale popcorn eaters who ate from the extra-large containers ate 34 percent more than those who ate fresh popcorn from the large containers. Wansink’s research offers these additional suggestions to help with portion control: Use smaller bowls, glasses and plates; don’t eat with the TV on (many will not stop eating until what they’re watching is over); eat fruit before snacking; eat a hot breakfast; and eat veggies and salad first. I can add two more suggestions: drink two glasses of water before each meal; and engage in pleasant, no-stress conversation while eating to create a distraction. Q: My husband had robotic surgery for Stage 1 prostate cancer. He can have orgasms, but he does not have erections. Will that ever change? My husband is 60 years old and I’m 50. — Anonymous, Philadelphia. A: It would be helpful for me to know when your husband had his robotic surgery, since sexual side effects from recent surgery often improve significantly within 3 to 12 months after robotic prostate removal surgery. A significantly lower risk of permanent impotence is the biggest advantage of robotic-assisted prostate cancer surgery over the traditional radical prostate cancer surgery. Still, there’s a chance that impotence will remain. It may surprise many folks to learn that a male orgasm can occur independently of an erection. Even though we think of them as sequential and connected events, they actually are two separate processes. If time does not improve the situation, and drugs like Viagra or Cialis are ineffective, there are other treatment options such as penile injections, vacuum erection devices or penile implants. Keep in mind that after prostate cancer surgery, even if erection can be achieved, ejaculation is impossible due to the removal of the seminal vesicles and the vas deferens.

How to guard medicine in your home By ALISON JOHNSON Daily Press (Newport News, Va.)

Seventy percent of kids who abuse prescription drugs get them from family and friends, according to the National Family Partnership, a major drug prevention organization. “The No. 1 mistake parents make is thinking it can’t happen to their child,” says Peggy Sapp, president of the partnership. Some tips: •Recognizetherisk.Whilemarijuana is the drug most commonly abused by teenagers, prescription drugs — including painkillers, amphetamines and medication for attention deficit disorder — are high on the list. So are over-the-counter cough medications. • Explain the risk. Make sure

kids know that using prescription drugs incorrectly can be just as dangerous and addictive as taking illegal drugs; many teens think they’re “safer.” Start talking early: the average age of first drug use is 12 1⁄2 years. • Store drugs safely. A locked medicine cabinet is ideal. Also do regular inventories of your supply to make sure none is missing, as well as to toss old prescriptions. • Dispose of drugs safely. Look for “take-back” events organized by local drug stores or police departments. If you put medication in the trash, mix it with cat litter or coffee grounds so kids won’t dig it out. To protect waterways, don’t flush pills down the toilet. •Setagoodexample.Takemed-

icines only as directed, and don’t shareprescriptionsbetweenfamily members. Teach kids that medications are meant for one person at a certain dose. • Have family dinners. Ask kids about the best and worst parts of their day. Children who learn to express their emotions and solve their problems are less likely to turn to drugs. • Get to know your child’s friends. Take the time to meet their parents, too. They can help protect your kids and notice symptoms such as dramatic personality changes, loss of appetite or bloodshot eyes. • Collect information.

Back-to-school can mean vaccines for tweens, teens By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer

Backpack. Notebooks. Whooping cough shot? If you haven’t worried about back-to-school shots since your tween or teen was entering kindergarten, better put vaccines on the to-do list. Older kids need a few new immunizations starting at age 11, including a shot to guard against the worrisome resurgence of whooping cough. And for the first time this year,16-year-olds are supposed togetaboostershot,too,forascary type of meningitis. Many slip through the cracks. One reason: Schools don’t require adolescents to comply with a list of national vaccine recommendations like they do kindergarteners. Another reason: “Kids this age go to the doctor much less,” says Dr. Melinda Wharton of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,whohadtoscrambletoget her own daughter that meningitis shot before she headed to college. “This whole back-to-school push is a good time for parents to think about their kids in terms of what vaccines are recommended.” But when it comes to whooping cough, a growing number of states are requiring updated shots as students enter middle school and beyond. Aside from an annual flu vaccine, here are federal recommendations for preteens and teens: • A Tdap shot between ages 11 and 12. It protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis or whooping cough — and the latter is key as the cough that’s so strong it can break a rib is on the rise. Young children get vaccinated before kindergarten but that protectionwearsoff,andpertussisoutbreaks in middle or high school no


longer are rare. While older kids usually recover, whooping cough can cause weeks of misery — and worse, they can easily spread the bacterial infection to not-yet-vaccinated infants, who can die. •Afirstdoseofwhat’scalledmeningococcal conjugate vaccine betweenages11and12,withabooster dose at 16. This fast-moving bacteria can cause meningitis or a bloodstream infection. It’s fortunately rare, causing fewer than 2,000 cases a year. But it can be so aggressive that someone can feel fine one day and bedeadthenext—anditsmaintargets are adolescents and college freshmen. Why? That’s not clear, but about 10 percent of the population carries the germ harmlessly in their noses and throats. Carriers tend to spread it by coughing, kissing and sharing drinking glasses, especially in crowded conditions like dormitories. Infection initially mimics a stomachbug,withfeverandvomiting.Up to 15 percent of patients die. One in five survivors suffers permanent disabilities including brain damage, deafness or amputated limbs. CDC’s statistics show that 54 percent of 13- to 17-year-olds had gotten vaccinated by 2009. But the booster dose is new advice — sci-

But in 2009, only 27 percent of girls ages 13 to 17 had gotten all three doses. “We were very disappointed in those numbers,” Wharton says. A vaccine version is sold for boys to prevent HPV-caused genital warts,althoughCDChasn’tyetrecommended its routine use. Wharton’s final advice: Adolescence is a good time to catch up on any shots that were recommended after your child started kindergarten and thus missed, like the second dose of chickenpox vaccine that became routine for the 5-yearold set just a few years ago.

tivity was 28 percent greater in buttocks muscles and 11 percent greater in calf muscles for wearers of EasyTones versus a regular Reebok walking shoe. Neither company provides guidelines for how long or frequently people should wear the shoes to see benefits. They say the shoes are not meant to replace the gym, but rather help people “get more out of every step,” said Leonard Armato, president of Skechers Fitness Group. In search of an independent assessment, the American Council on Exercise last year sponsored a study that found that walking in Sketchers Shape-ups, Reebok EasyTone Reenspire or MBTs was no more effective at burning calories or working muscles than walking in a regular New Balance running shoe. The researchers, from the Exercise and Health Program at the University of Wisconsin at La Crosse, tested muscle activity in the calves, quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus, abdominals and lower back. Even if muscles do work harder at first to overcome the instability, the effect dissipates as muscles adjust, said Cedric Bryant, chief science officer for the American Council on Exercise. But there could be an indirect benefit if toning shoes are encouraging people to walk more, Bryant said. Almost all of the test

He has more than 30 years of experience and is a nationally known expert on health care strategies for the new millennium. “As we witnessed with the recent collapse of the tech and housing bubbles, the health care bubble will collapse before 2020,” stated Kaufman. “It’s simply unsustainable.” Kaufman said the cost to insure a family of four in the United States has more than doubled since 1991 and is projected to double again in the next decade. “The United States has over $650 million in annual health care costs which are not correlated by any other peer nation,” Kaufman explained. “Defensive medicine is responsible for much of that waste and is unique to the U.S.” defines defensive medicine as “medical practices designed to avert the future possibility of malpractice suits.” “Programs like Geisinger Healthcare System are standard bearers for the industry,” Kaufman added. “Their model has shown that quality managed care can produce favorable results with substantial








IF YOU’RE IN THE MARKET Podiatrist Paul Langer offered these tips if you plan to buy toning shoes: • Don’t wear them if you have poor balance. • Try on different kinds to assess which are most comfortable and suitable to your needs. • Avoid cheap knock-offs, which tend to be flimsy on the sides. • The shoes can be heavy, some weighing more than 16 ounces per shoe. Take that into account when buying, as heavier shoes can cause more muscle soreness.

subjects in the ACE study told the researchers that the toning shoes were more comfortable than traditional running shoes, he said. Toning shoe companies can cite thousands of testimonials from happy customers, but not everyone’s satisfied. Several lawsuits claiming misleading advertising have been filed against toning shoe manufacturers from Reebok to New Balance, and last summer Skechers was named in a federal class action lawsuit alleging Shape-ups offer no health benefit beyond what regular sneakers provide and can cause injury. This February, an Ohio woman filed a lawsuit claiming that wearing Skechers Shape-ups led her to develop hip fractures. In a review of injury reports on, a site run by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Consumer Reports identified 36 complaints between March and May associated with toning shoes. Most of the reported injuries were minor, including ten-

are safe if used properly. “Just as the millions of pairs of high-heel shoes that are sold annually aren’t suitable for everyone, Shape-ups may not be either,” said Skechers’ Armato. Shape-ups come with instructions and users are advised to limit wearing them to 25 to 45 minutes per day for the first two weeks, increasing usage

What they can do, Langer said, is redistribute the pressure on your foot, alleviating stress and strain on the joints, which is helpful for people suffering from arthritis in the foot. People should treat the shoes like fitness tools, Langer said. The most problems he sees are from overuse.

Debate about bridal shower thank-you notes boils over among readers Dear Abby: “Insulted in Ohio” (July 9) was offended because she’s being asked at bridal and baby showers to address a blank envelope so the honoree can send her a thank-you note. Good heavens, lady, calm down. At a shower, you are celebrating a milestone event in a young woman’s life. Your gift will help her during the next phase of her life. These joyous events can be stressful and require a lot of preparation. I’m sure the hostess’s intent in asking guests to perform this minor task is to ease the honoree’s responsibilities. It also ensures the addresses appear correctly on the envelopes and everyone is

DEAR ABBY ADVICE accounted for on the gift list. Is that really so “insulting”? “Ohio,” if you feel so imposed-upon being asked do do such a simple thing, may I offer a suggestion? Gift the honoree with your “regrets” and leave your judgmental attitude at home. (I’ll bet you count the days until you’re thanked, too.) — Gail in Nacogdoches, Texas Dear Gail: Thank-you notes are a hot-button issue with my readers, and frankly, I am surprised more of you didn’t stick up for “Insulted.” However, I stand firm in my conviction that


the more personal the thank-you note (including the envelope), the better. My newspaper readers comment: Dear Abby: With the advent of email, social networking and online invitation sites, mailing addresses are used less often. I’d be hardpressed to find the street addresses of some of my closest friends and relatives. As part of the younger generation, I’m more comfortable with email. If I were hosting one of these events, I’d have to kindly ask guests to write down their addresses for me to use later for thankyous. And because it’s being done on paper, it might as well be on the envelopes — a practical, time-saving solution. — Jenny in Quebec, Canada


Dear Abby: I’m also from Ohio, and I was insulted, too. It appalled me being asked to address my own future thank-you envelope. And would you like to know the kicker? I never received the envelope or a thank-you after the shower. — Carla T. Dear Abby: While the practice does seem a little over the top, there are creative alternatives. At a baby shower, my sisters gave everyone index cards and asked them to write down their name and address and guess the baby’s birth weight and length. The guest who came closest would be mailed a prize. It was a way to ensure I had everyone’s address for thankyou cards. At bridal showers, a blank

address book can be passed around for guests to write their contact information. The book is then presented to the bride for her new home. — Melanie in the Midwest Dear Abby: To save a busy bride or mother-to-be time and effort, addressing my envelope is another “gift” I can give her. All the envelopes could then be placed in a basket, with one being drawn for the “door prize.” — Lynn in Duluth, Minn. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get the idea that break time is over. Crack down on self-discipline. The more leeway you give yourself the further away from your goals you will stray. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Avoid making assumptions about another person — you’re not likely to assume the right thing. Instead, ask questions, even if it means you risk looking foolish. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You see the light at the end of the tunnel, and you keep going toward it because you know it’s the right way. Still, there’s no reason not to enjoy your time and travels during this contained part of your journey. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everything you own needs maintenance. You’ll decide whether or not the time you put into keeping a certain possession clean and orderly is really worth the value of the thing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Human behavior can be somewhat of a puzzle. You’re willing to experiment, turning the pieces and trying different arrangements until something clicks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want your loved ones to be entertained in the way they find most delightful. You’ll observe what makes them laugh and note what holds their attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t be so worried about giving just as much as the other person gives. It may, in fact, be a bad idea to balance the scales. Someone wants to be the bigger giver and will be disappointed if you try to outdo every gift.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take a break from trying to improve yourself. What you need more than anything is rest. Also, self-acceptance will carry your efforts much further than constant internal criticism. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have interesting and useful talents now. You will be able to control your emotions, curb your cravings and fit into whatever social situation you happen to come across. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Political and moral agendas may be at odds now. Someone needs your agreement in order to move forward. However, you may not be able to give this approval in good conscience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You won’t care whether or not you are the most amazing player on the scene. You just want to get into the game and have some fun. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One of the most formidable obstacles you will encounter in the managing of your mood is the emotional tone of others. Bad attitudes and crummy moods are catching. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 30). You want to see different parts of the world and be able to communicate fluently there. You’ll learn a “new language” — though it may still be in your native tongue. Enjoyable work makes lifestyle upgrades possible. November brings family additions. January puts an old battle to rest. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 31, 29 and 36.
