A shattered Vermont cries for help Days after the titanic storm Irene, small towns remain cut off. By JOHN CURRAN Associated Press

NEWFANE, Vt. — National Guard helicopters rushed food and water Tuesday to a dozen cut-off Vermont towns after the rainy remnants of Hurricane Irene washed out roads and bridges in a deluge that took many people in the landlocked New England state by surprise. “As soon as we can get help, we need help,” Liam McKinley said by cellphone from a mountain above flood-stricken Rochester, Vt.

Additional federal aid for repairs and recovery had not been approved as of Tuesday afternoon, though requests were in the works, officials said.

Luzerne County seems lucky with the Cash 5 lottery. For the second time in three days, a winning Cash 5 ticket was sold in the county. The Pennsylvania Lottery

Commission announced Tuesday that a winning ticket for the Cash 5 drawing on Monday was sold at the Turkey Hill on South Main Street in Pittston. The jackpot for the Monday drawing was $225,000. A manager at the Pittston Turkey Hill store deferred questions to Turkey Hill corporate head-

quarters in Lancaster County. A message for Erin Dimitriou, Turkey Hill public relations, was not returned. A Cash 5 ticket sold at the Uni-Mart on East State Street,

Larksville, made a couple $1.1 million wealthier on Saturday. Lottery officials said they cannot confirm the identity of the winners until the prizes are claimed and the tickets are validated. No one has claimed the Saturday or Monday winning tickets as of Tuesday, lottery officials said. Winners have up to one year

from the date of a drawing to claim their prize. According to the lottery commission, there have been three other winning Cash 5 tickets sold in the county since the beginning of the year.

Access ramps bid is OK’d Township Manager Judy Boudman announces that she will retire in October. By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

SALEM TWP. – Don E. Bower Inc. of Berwick submitted the low bid for the installation of six access ramps along the curbing of East Second Street. Bower’s bid was $29,220, the lowest of four received by the township supervisors at a special meeting on Monday evening. The proposed project complies with the Americans with Disabil-

ities Act and will provide pedestrian ramps for persons who are physically challenged. The area spans from Fowler Avenue to the Salem line at Walnut Street and coincides with street paving that is scheduled there this fall. Besides Bower, the supervisors also accepted bids from Asphalt Paving Service, $6,105, for work on the parking lot at the township building on Bomboy Lane; from H.R.I., $3,981, for dust and oil application on Cemetery Road and River Road in Beach Haven, $3,981; and from Interstate Road Management for line painting, $5,693, on roads which include Fowler Street, Bomboy Lane,

Morris Hill and Stone Church Road. In other business, Chairman Robert Pearse read into the record a letter from Judy Boudman in which she announced her intention to retire as township manager, effective Oct. 2, 2011. Pearse thanked Boudman for her service, but had no comment about a successor. The supervisors continued to their regularly scheduled meeting on Sept. 13 a request for additional stop signs at the intersection of Spruce and East Third streets and the appointment of a new representative to the Berwick Area Sewer Authority.

Fracking eyed as drain on water The Susquehanna River Basin Commission has suspended some water withdrawals. By ANDREW MAYKUTH The Philadelphia Inquirer

WYSOX — The Marcellus Shale natural gas industry has a huge thirst for water — to hydraulically fracture a single gas well requires upward of a thousand tanker-trucks of water. And so during the summer, when some streams here in gasrich northern Pennsylvania naturally turn into trickles, the Susquehanna River Basin Commission pays close attention to ensure that drilling interests don’t suck the state’s creeks dry. The SRBC, an interstate agency responsible for managing the Susquehanna watershed, this summer has suspended withdrawals from as many as 40 permitted locations because of seasonal low flows. Most of the suspended locations affect gas drillers. But the shale-gas industry, now moving rapidly from an exploratory to a production phase, has hardly missed a beat. Fracking continues, largely unabated. The commission allows drillers to withdraw up to 98 million gallons per day at 142 locations, though in reality, the industry uses far less than what it is allowed, the SRBC says. The permitted amounts are based on elaborate computations tied to historical stream flows. When stream levels fall below a certain level, withdrawals must stop. Anticipating the seasonal fluctuations, natural gas operators have built vast networks of impoundments — plastic-lined

ponds — to store needs. The business of withdrawing water from the water is more complicated than rainy seasons. “The natural gas simply inserting a hose into the industry is trying river and pumping.

risburg today, according to the order signed by Dauphin County Judge Richard Lewis. The order does not state which charges the former Philadelphia lawmaker will plead guilty to. His lawyer, Brian McMonagle, did not return a message left Tuesday. Eric Ruth, a former House GOP technology employee, also is scheduled to plead guilty at the hearing. Ruth plans to plead guilty to one felony count each of

conspiracy and conflict of interest, his lawyer, Evan Kelly of West Chester, said Tuesday. The state Attorney General’s Office has placed Perzel at the center of a variety of allegedly illegal activities in the House Republican caucus that led to the arrests of 10 present and former legislators and aides in November 2009. Perzel, 61, faces 82 counts — more than any other GOP defendant — of charges

that include theft, conspiracy, conflict of interest, hindering apprehension and obstruction. Perzel, who was ousted from the Legislature in last year’s election, and Ruth were among six GOP defendants who were scheduled to go on trial next month. Lewis issued a separate order Tuesday pushing back the opening of the trial by two weeks to Sept. 26. The start of jury selection also was pushed back to Sept. 19.

LOCAL Proceeds from sale could be subject to forfeit as result of ex-judge’s guilty plea

Conahan home sold for $320K

WRIGHT TWP. – One month before he is scheduled to be sentenced on a corruption charge, former Luzerne County Michael Conahan has sold his home to a Plains Township couple. Court records show that Conahan’s wife, Barbara, sold the home located at 301 Deer Run Drive in Wright Township for $320,000 on Aug. 18 to Wesley K. Woo and his wife, Jennifer Thomas. The sale price is $40,000 less than the Conahans paid for the home in 2004.

Pasonick sentence delayed

A federal judge has postponed the Sept. 8 sentencing for local engineer Michael Pasonick due to a dispute over a pre-sentence investigation report issued by federal probation officials. U.S. District Judge Richard P. Conaboy scheduled a hearing for Sept. 14 to resolve a dispute between Pasonick’s attorney and federal prosecutors regardPasonick ing the probation department’s findings. Pasonick pleaded guilty in May to paying a bribe to an area school board member who promised to help Pasonick obtain future contracts with the district. Prosecutors have not identified the board member or the district involved. The pre-sentence report, which is not public, evaluates a defendant’s crime and background. That information is then utilized to determine the sentencing guideline range, which is considered by a judge in determining an appropriate sentence. In Pasonick’s case, the guideline range calls for a sentence of 18 to 24 months in prison. The nature of the dispute regarding the report could not be determined Tuesday.

A protest with a bitter taste Foreign students claim they were exploited during summer work in a Hershey facility.

By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE – An international stage was set on Public Square on Tuesday afternoon as 15 students from foreign countries brought their allegations of exploitation at a Hershey plant to the Wyoming Valley. In a public display dubbed “Fair and

Good Jobs Rally,” the students drew attention by chanting, “Hershey, Hershey, can’t you see. What justice did to me,” while a man dressed as a chocolate Hershey Bar cracked a whip. Local labor leaders said they organized the rally here to draw attention to corporate exploitation of workers. The college students, ranging in age from 19 to 22, were from China, Nigeria, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and Northern European countries. They said were happy to visit the Wyoming Valley after a summer of working 12 hours a day in a Hershey

Chocolate warehouse, packing candy, for little net pay. Roxanne Pauline, of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Area Labor Federation, said this is the students’ only opportunity to travel in the United States since being accepted into a J-1 visa cultural exchange program in May. A J-1 visa is a cultural exchange program designed to promote a better understanding of other countries. The students return to their native countries next week. See PROTEST, Page 7A

$428,000 settlement reached in Fairchild suit By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

MOUNTAIN TOP – The current and former owners of the Fairchild Semiconductor plant have agreed to a roughly $428,000 settlement of a claim filed by the government relating for clean-up costs associated with chemical spills that occurred in the 1980s, according to court documents. The U.S. Department of Justice filed suit in July against Fairchild and the plant’s previous owners, General Electric Corp., Harris Corp. and Intersil Corp., seeking to recover $478,959 it spent to clean up two chemical spills in 1981 and 1982 that contaminated the drinking water wells of five homes on

South Mountain Boulevard. The plant was owned by General Electric at the time. According to the suit, the federal Environmental Protection Agency was notified in 2004 that the wells had tested positive for trichloroethylene, or TCE, a chemical solvent that is used to remove grease from metal and textiles. The EPA began clean up of the site in January 2005 that included plugging existing wells, removing piping and installing waterlines to connect homes to the local municipal water supply. The government and defendants have agreed to settle the claim for $428,960, roughly 90 percent of the cost incurred, according to a consent decree filed Monday in federal court in

Scranton. The decree states that none of the defendants admits any liability. The agreement has been reached to avoid the expense “prolonged and complicated” litigation between the parties. The document does not specify how much each company will pay. Patti Olson, spokeswoman for Fairchild Semiconductor, said that firm is not responsible for any portion of the payment because it was not the owner of the plant at the time the spills occurred. Attorneys for the General Electric, Intersil and Harris corporations said they could not comment due to confidentiality clauses contained settlement documents between the defendants.

A grant seminar for fire and ambulance organizations slated for today is being rescheduled for Sept. 14, due to recent weather-related events, said state Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, who is organizing the seminar. The seminar will be 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Hazleton Fire Department, 525 Broad St., Hazleton.

DEP checking oil leak

The state Department of Environmental Protection has been called in to help investigate suspected heating oil contamination in the soil at a home at 9 Shannon St. DEP spokesman Kevin Sunday on Tuesday said oil contamination has been detected in a 30-by-75-foot area at the property. Sunday said the source of the oil has not been determined, but the department suspects an old oil tank located at the former Penn State Belt and Buckle Co. is leaking due to corrosion or because of heavy rains caused by Hurricane Irene. A contractor is scheduled to visit the site Thursday to try to determine the source and depth of the contamination.

HEISHA, Libya — Libyan rebels say they’re closing in on Moammar Gadhafi and issued an ultimatum Tuesday to regime loyalists in the fugitive dictator’s hometown of Sirte, his main remaining bastion: surrender this weekend or face an attack. “We have a good idea where he is,” a top rebel leader said. The rebels, tightening their grip on Libya after a military blitz, also demanded that Algeria return Gadhafi’s wife and three of his children who fled there Monday. Granting asylum to his family, including daughter Aisha who gave birth in Algeria on Tuesday, was an

“enemy act,” said Ahmed al-Darrad, the rebels’ interior minister. Rebel leaders insisted they are slowly restoring order in the war-scarred capital of Tripoli after a week of fighting, including deploying police and collecting garbage. Reporters touring Tripoli still saw chaotic scenes, including desperate motorists stealing fuel from a gas station. In the capital’s Souk al Jumma neighborhood, about 200 people pounded on the doors of a bank, demanding that it open. Civil servants said they were told they would receive a 250-dinar (about $200) advance on their salaries for the three-day Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which starts today in Libya. Rebel fighters were converging on the heavily militarized town of Sirte, some 250 miles east of Tripoli. The rebels gave pro-Gadhafi forces there a deadline of Saturday — the day after the end of the Muslim holiday —

to complete negotiations and surrender. After that, the rebels will “act decisively and militarily,” said Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the head of the rebels’ National Transitional Council. His deputy, Ali Tarhouni, said in Tripoli that “sometimes to avoid bloodshed you must shed blood, and the faster we do this, the less blood we will shed.” There has been speculation that Gadhafi is seeking refuge in Sirte or one of the other remaining regime strongholds, among them the towns of Bani Walid or Sabha. “Gadhafi is now fleeing — and we have a good idea where he is,” Tarhouni said, without elaborating. “We don’t have any doubt that we will catch him.” About 90 miles west of Sirte, about a dozen armored, gun-mounted trucks were parked at a staging ground in the desert. A highway overpass provided some shade for rebels.

Syria sanctions expanded

he Obama administration expanded its net of sanctions on Syrian PresiT dent Bashar Assad’s regime on Tuesday, banning Americans from doing business with the country’s foreign minister and two other senior officials as it seeks to further pressure authorities to halt a crackdown on protesters. The Treasury Department’s action also blocks any assets in the United States belonging to Walid al-Moallem, Assad’s foreign minister since 2006; senior adviser Buthaina Shaaban; and Ali Abdul-Karim Ali, Syria’s ambassador to Lebanon. More than 30 Syrian officials and firms had already been hit with U.S. sanctions. President Barack Obama on Aug. 18 also banned any U.S. import of Syrian oil or petroleum products, and froze all Syrian government assets subject to American jurisdiction.

Jeffs now in prison hospital

Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs is being moved to a prison hospital for additional treatment after he became sick while fasting. Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons said Tuesday Jeffs was being taken from East Texas Medical Center in Tyler, where he was admitted Sunday, to the Texas prison hospital at Galveston. Lyons says Jeffs, 55, remains in critical but stable condition. . She has said Jeffs is expected to fully recover. Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison earlier this month after his conviction for sexually assaulting underage girls. NEWARK, N.J.

Guilty plea in teen murders

A New Jersey man pleaded guilty Tuesday to murdering five teenagers in 1978 in what was one of the state’s longest-running cold cases. Philander Hampton, of Jersey City, told police three years ago that he and a cousin, Lee Evans of nearby Irvington, lured the teens to an abandoned house in Newark with the promise of odd jobs, then locked them inside and set the house on fire. The attack allegedly was prompted by stolen drugs. Since his arrest last year, Hampton had been triying to have his 2008 statements to police barred on legal grounds. But state Superior Court Judge Patricia Costello ruled the statement admissible this spring. Hampton pleaded guilty to five counts of felony murder before Costello on Tuesday. WASHINGTON

Supercommittee aide picked

The co-chairs of a budget “supercommittee” responsible for coming up with at least $1.2 trillion in deficit cuts announced Tuesday that they have chosen a Republican tax expert as their top staff aide. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, have selected Mark Prater, a tax lawyer with the Senate Finance Committee, as the supercommittee’s staff director. Prater is highly thought of on Capitol Hill. And he can play the threedimensional chess that’s needed to help lawmakers do the deals required to forge consensus on complicated legislation. He’s also steeped in the minutia of various tax breaks and preferences that many lawmakers say are wasteful and inefficient.

U.S. sees deadliest Afghan month

Sixty-six U.S. service members were killed in August, the most of any month in the nearly 10-year war.

By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan — August has become the deadliest month yet for U.S. forces in the nearly 10-year-old war in Afghanistan, increasing pressure on the Obama administration to bring troops home sooner rather than later. The 66 U.S. service members killed this month eclipses the previous record of 65 killed in July 2010, according to an Associated Press tally. Nearly half the August deaths occurred when insurgents shot down a Chinook helicopter Aug. 6, killing 30 American troops, mostly elite Navy SEALs. Violence is being reported across Afghanistan despite the U.S.-led coalition’s drive to rout insurgents from their strongholds in the south. Though U.S. military officials predicted high casualties this summer as the Taliban try to come back after recent offensives, the grim milestone increases pressure on President Barack Obama to bring

troops home sooner rather than later. The military has begun to implement Obama’s order to withdraw the 33,000 extra troops he dispatched to the war. He ordered 10,000 out this year and another 23,000 withdrawn by the summer of 2012, leaving about 68,000 U.S. troops on the ground. Although major combat units are not expected to start leaving until late fall, two National Guard regiments comprising about 1,000 soldiers started going home last month. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has set the end of 2014 as the target date for Af-

ghan police and soldiers to take the lead in protecting and defending the country, leaving international combat forces to go home or take on more support roles. In a speech in Minnesota on Tuesday, Obama honored all the troops who have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Twenty-three Americans died this month in Kandahar and Helmand provinces in southern Afghanistan, the main focus of Afghan and U.S.-led coalition forces. The remaining 13 were killed in eastern Afghanistan.

WASHINGTON — A federal safety panel unanimously concluded Tuesday that a series of actions by one of the nation’s largest gas companies caused a gas explosion last year that killed eight people and incinerated a suburban neighborhood near San Francisco.

Contributingtotheaccidentwas lax oversight by state and federal regulators, the board said. Among the problems with government oversight was a lack of federal or state regulations on testing for older pipelines to detect defections, the board said. The California Public Utilities Commission also failed to detect widespreadinternalproblemswith PG&E’s safety regime, including a lack of automatic gas shutoff valves and shortcomings in the company’s emergency response plan that contributed to the protracted duration of the accident, the board said. “It was not a question of if this pipeline would burst,” said NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman. “It was a question of when.”

Increased cockpit automation appears to be dulling pilot skills, observers say By JOAN LOWY Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Are airline pilots forgetting how to fly? As planes become ever more reliant on automation to navigate crowded skies, safety officials worry there will be more deadly accidents traced to pilots who have lost their hands-on instincts in the air. Hundreds of people have died over the past five years in “loss of control” accidents. In some cases, pilots made the wrong split-second decisions, with catastrophic results — for example, steering the plane’s nose

skyward into a stall instead of down to regain stable flight. Spurred in part by federal regulations that require greater reliance on computerized flying, the airline industry is suffering from “automation addiction,” said Rory Kay, an airline captain and co-chairman of a Federal Aviation Administration committee on pilot training. “We’re seeing a new breed of accident with these state-of-the art planes.” Pilots use automated systems to fly airliners for all but about three minutes of a flight: the takeoff and landing. They

have few opportunities to maintain their skills by flying manually, Kay’s advisory committee warns. A draft FAA study examined 46 accidents and major incidents, 734 voluntary reports by pilots and others as well as data from more than 9,000 flights in which a safety official rode in the cockpit to observe pilots in action. It found that in more than 60 percent of accidents, and 30 percent of major incidents, pilots had trouble AP FILE PHOTO manually flying the plane or made mistakes with automated The wreckage of a Turkish Airlines jet is seen Feb. 25, 2009, flight controls. after it crashed while trying to land in Amsterdam.

The impact that Irene’s pounding rain and howling winds had on Northeastern Pennsylvania last weekend was still being felt Tuesday. Many across the region continued to get by without electricity or water, and without knowing when service would definitely be restored. The storm left many images. Many area residents saw and felt the effects of flooding, whether it was feet of water in basements or roads made impassable by debris or damaged and washed out Scores of trees were toppled. Some fell into yards, causing no more than a mess. But others landed on buildings, causing plenty of damage. Still others dropped into the street, blocking the way, or took out power lines, knocking out electric service to thousands. Wherever the trees ended up, they created hours of work for homeowners, neighbors, contractors and utility workers.

Man who allegedly threatened Kadluboski waives hearing By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

oraya Petit Homme wipes a tear from her eye Tuesday afternoon as she graduates from Keystone Job Corps Center in Drums, Butler Township.

WILKES-BARRE – A man accused of threatening City Wide tower Bob Kadluboski with a box cutter waived his right to a preliminary hearing in WilkesBarre Central Court on Tuesday. Todd Miller Masterman, 52, of Lehigh Street, Wilkes-Barre Township, waived charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, terroristic threats and resisting arrest to Luzerne County Court. Senior District Judge Andrew Barilla granted a request to modify bail for Masterman. He had been jailed at the county prison for lack of $20,000 bail. Barilla modified the bail to $20,000 unsecured bail, permitting Masterman’s release from jail. He was ordered not to have any contact with Kadluboski. “If you violate bail, you’ll be back in jail,” Barilla warned. “No shenanigans.” Police allege Masterman charged at Kadluboski threatening him with a box cutter at

Kadluboski’s impound yard on New Frederick Street on Aug. 13. Masterman threatened to kill KadlubosKadluboski ki, who defended himself by reaching for a pistol, according to the criminal complaint. Masterman sped away in his vehicle, nearly striking Kadluboski, the complaint says. Kadluboski said Masterman was angry because he had towed his vehicle about six weeks ago. Masterman was arrested on Aug. 13 on the same set of charges. The initial case was dismissed by District Judge Martin Kane on Aug. 23 when the arresting officer and Kadluboski failed to appear at the preliminary hearing. Kadluboski claimed neither he nor the arresting officer was notified of the preliminary hearing on Aug. 23. Police refiled the charges against Masterman on Aug. 24.

without paying for it, and a month later was involved in several vehicle break-ins in Wilkes-Barre where several items were removed. On March 31, police said, Heath took a driver’s license, credit cards and gift cards belonging to an Elizabeth Tighe. When police searched Heath, they found a syringe

and plastic bags. A month later, police said, Heath entered a home on South Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre and removed copper piping from a building owned by Wilkes University. Heath is scheduled to be formally arraigned on Oct. 21 on charges relating to the burglary of Tighe’s items, according to court records.

After the storm, it’s a blizzard of claims for insurance cash Adjusters fan out to deal with property owners who report damage from Irene.

By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

Homeowners around Northeastern Pennsylvania are picking up the pieces following the weekend hurricane and creating plenty of work for area insurers. It’s far too early to estimate the number of insurance claims that will be filed for damage caused by Hurricane Irene or their cost to insurers, Pennsylvania Insurance Department spokeswoman Mellissa Fox said, but area insurance agents said they’ve been busy. Jean Phillips, owner of Tal Phillips Insurance Agency Inc. in Kingston, said an “excessive amount of claims” was filed Monday and Tuesday. “I have not seen anything like this for a while,” she said. “Sometimes we do see a lot of claims but not as widespread as this.”

VERMONT Continued from Page 1A

Woodstock Recreation Center, said as volunteers moved furniture out of the flooded basement and shoveled out thick mud that filled the center’s two swimming pools. As crews raced to repair the roads, the National Guard began flying in supplies to the towns of Cavendish, Granville, Hancock, Killington-Mendon, Marlboro, Pittsfield, Plymouth, Rochester, Stockbridge, Strafford, Stratton and Wardsboro. The Guard also used heavy-duty vehicles to bring relief to flood-stricken communities still reachable by road. The cut-off towns ranged in population from under 200 (Stratton) to nearly 1,400 (Cavendish). “If it’s a life-and-death situation, where someone needs to be Medevac-ed or taken to a hospital, we would get a helicopter there to airlift them out, if we could get close to them. A lot of these areas are mountainous areas where there may not be a place to land,” said Mark Bosma, a spokesman for Vermont Emergency Management. There were no immediate reports of anyone in dire condition being rescued by helicopter. But it took a relay operation involving two ambulances and an all-terrain vehicle to take a Killington woman in respiratory distress to a hospital in Rutland, about 13 miles away, after floodwaters severed the road between the two communities, Rutland Regional Medical Center President Tom Hubner said. The patient, whose name was not released, was doing fine, he said. In Rochester, where telephones were out and damage was severe, people could be seen from helicopters standing in line outside a grocery store. McKinley said the town’s restaurants and a supermarket were giving food away rather than let it spoil, and townspeople were helping each other.

The long path of damage stretched from North Carolina to Vermont and has created a shortage of insurance adjusters for some companies. Phillips said her agency’s insurance carrier, Erie Insurance, has had to call in adjusters from outside the area and to hire private insurance adjusters locally. “This is so wide and broad they’ve really stretched themselves out from an adjuster standpoint, so people need to be patient,” said independent agent Bartt Slocum of Slocum Insurance Agency in Dallas, adding that adjusters should be able to respond to most claims within 48 hours of filing. David Abod, a catastrophe insuranceadjusterbasedatHarveys Lake, said he already had about two weeks worth of work scheduled from about 42 previous storms throughout the state when Irene struck. “We’re just hammered with claims; it’s just unbelievable,” he said, adding, “I think a lot of them “We’ve been fine so far. The worst part is not being able to communicate with the rest of the state and know when people are coming in,” he said. He said government agencies did a good job of warning people about the storm. “But here in Vermont, I think we just didn’t expect it and didn’t prepare for it,” he said. “I thought, how could it happen here?” Wendy Pratt, another of the few townspeople able to communicate with the outside world, posted an update on Facebook using a generator and a satellite Internet connection. She sketched a picture of both devastation and New England neighborliness. “People have lost their homes, their belongings, businesses ... the cemetery was flooded and caskets were lost down the river. So many areas of complete devastation,” Pratt wrote. “In town there is no cell service or internet service - all phones in town are out. We had a big town meeting at the church at 4 this afternoon to get any updates.” “Mac’s opened up at 5 and gave perishables away to anyone who came,” she added. “The Huntington House put on a big, free community dinner tonight.” Access to Rochester and Stratton by road was restored later in the day, officials said. All together, the storm has been blamed for at least 44 deaths in 13 states. More than 2.5 million people from North Carolina to Maine were still without electricity Tuesday, three days after the hurricane churned up the Eastern Seaboard.

haven’t even called in yet. People are just getting their power back and their phone service back today (Tuesday).” Abod said he was among that group, as power was only restored to his office Monday night. “Our power goes out; our basement floods, just like everybody else,” he said. “I’m out in the car trying to charge my computer and my cell phone. I’m out in my car working trying to do the best I can.” Most of the storm damages were caused by downed trees, ratherthandirectwinddamageor flooding, insurance professionals said. Phillips rattled off a laundry list of the sorts of claims she has heard this week. “Downed trees; trees uprooted; falling on houses; falling on boats; falling on sheds; falling in the yard,” For those facing property damage from Irene, insurance professionals recommended calling their agents or their insurance

companies directly as soon as possible, and making temporary repairs as needed to prevent further damage. “The main thing is to get it reported, make emergency, temporary repairs and save all receipts, that way everybody’s in good order,” said John Tasker of Tasker Harding Group in Hanover Township. Slocum added that many insurance companies now have 800 numbers by which claimants can report damages directly. “Monday morning when we came in there were already claims in the fax machine,” he said. “They had called the insurance company. It’s a much faster process than having to take their information and relay it to the adjusters.” Phillips suggested taking pictures before and after making any emergency repairs as a safeguard. Claimants should also review their policy or speak with their insurance company about what sort of damages are covered by their

insurance. In general, homeowner’s policies will cover damage to a home or other structure caused by a felled tree, and will pay for removal of enough of the tree to repair the house up to a certain cost, but they do not always cover removal of trees that did not strike a structure, insurance agents said. “I’ve been at several where it hit the house and it didn’t do any damage and I couldn’t do anything,” Abod said. “The only reason I have to remove it is because I have to fix the house, and to do it I have to move the tree. If it doesn’t do anything to that house, I can’t even pay to take the tree off.” Phillips said Erie Insurance will pay up to $500 to remove each downed tree on a property up to a total cost of $1,000. Tasker added that if a tree falls on a vehicle, damage to the vehicle is covered only if the owner has comprehensive coverage from his or her auto insurer, and if your neighbor’s tree falls on your house, it’s your insurance that

pays for the damages. Abod also recommended claimants check their policies closely, as many policies carry separate, significantly higher deductibles for hurricane damage. “A lot of people are going to be shocked to learn that they have a hurricane deductible attached to their policy,” he said. Damage from flooding typically isn’t covered by homeowners insurance, agents said, but by flood insurance. Those with flood insurance seeking to file a claim should contact their insurance agent, “because the agent has special instructions that we are sent on how to process a claim,” Tasker said. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners also recommends keeping records of all correspondence with the insurancecompany,askingquestionsif you believe your insurance company is interpreting your policy differently than you would and to being prepared to negotiate to obtain a fair settlement.

His wife said city-dwellers may see a weather report and know it applies to their entire metropolitan area. “But when you live in Vermont, there are lots of little microclimates and every village is different.” she said. “I think our authorities were fine.” Approximately 260 roads in Vermont were closed because of storm damage, along with about 30 highway bridges. Vermont Deputy Transportation Secretary Sue Minter said the infrastructure damage was in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Relief supplies arrived at Vermont’s National Guard headquarters early Tuesday in a convoy of 30 trucks from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Accompanied by Shumlin, FEMA administrator Craig Fugate toured the state by helicopter Tuesday to survey the damage. Meanwhile, in North Carolina, where Irene blew ashore along the Outer Banks on Saturday before heading for New York and New England, Gov. Beverly Perdue said the hurricane destroyed more than 1,100 homes and caused at least $70 million in damage. Airlines said it would be days before the thousands of passengers stranded by Irene find their way home.

While all eyes were on the coast as Irene swirled northward, some of the worst destruction took place well inland, away from the storm’s most punishing winds. In Vermont, Gov. Peter Shumlin called it the worst flooding in a century. Small towns in upstate New York — especially in the Catskills and the Adirondacks — were also besieged by floodwaters. In Pittsfield, Vt., newlyweds Marc Leibowitz and Janina Stegmeyer of New York City were stranded Sunday along with members of the wedding party and dozens of their guests after floodwaters swamped the couple’s honeymoon cottage. The honeymooners narrowly escaped in a four-wheel-drive rental car just before a bridge behind them collapsed. More than a dozen of the 60 or so guests were airlifted out by private helicopters on Tuesday. Michael Ricci of Woodstock, Vt., spent the day clearing de-

What had been a meticulously mowed, sloping grass lawn and gorgeous flower beds was now a muddy expanse littered with debris, including wooden boards, propane tanks and a deer hunting target. “The things we saw go down the river were just incredible,” he said. “Sheds, picnic tables, propane tanks, furnaces, refrigerators. We weren’t prepared for that. We had prepared for wind and what we ended up with was more water than I could possibly, possibly have imagined.” He said the water in the yard was almost up to the house, or about 15 to 20 feet above normal. He added: “The force of it was beyond our comprehension.” Vermont emergency officials and the National Weather Ser-

vice warned before the storm about the potential for heavy rain and flooding. On Thursday, Shumlin recommended stocking up on enough food, water and other supplies to last three days. On Tuesday, the governor defended his state’s decision not to undertake extensive evacuations before the storm arrived, noting that it was too hard to predict which communities in a rugged place like Vermont would get hit. “You’d have to evacuate the entire state,” he said. Gerald and Evangeline Monroe of Quechee, Vt., agreed with the governor and said they had no complaints about the way authorities handled the crisis. Gerald Monroe noted that some homes on one side of the river through his town were

OUR OPINION: BLOOD DONATIONS

Storm’s long arm shortens supply

E

VEN IF HURRICANE Irene left your home and property intact this weekend, roll up your sleeves; there’s a job to be done. The deadly storm not only knocked over trees and triggered power outages on the East Coast, including many areas in Luzerne and Wyoming counties, it also scuttled several planned blood drives and lowered donor turnout, prompting the American Red Cross to issue a request for help. It needs people to provide platelet and blood donations – preferably soon, in early September. Or even better, before the start of the Labor Day holiday weekend. Area residents can go to the permanent Red Cross blood donation center in Hanover Township or any of a number of upcoming special collection sites throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. For locations, dates and times, visit www.redcrossblood.org/nepa. Or call 1-800RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Chances are, between now and Sept. 11, you can find a blood collection site near your home or workplace. A quick scan of the schedule shows events planned in a Walmart store (Thursday near Tunkhannock), a Kingston bank (Sept. 6 at Honesdale National Bank), at Steamtown National Historic

Site (Saturday in Scranton) and in a church (today in White Haven). If none of those places is suitable, how about Home Depot in Wilkes-Barre? Buy fresh flashlight batteries, give blood. The point is this: You can coordinate blood donation into your daily routine without too much trouble. For added convenience, schedule your appointment online or by telephone rather than simply drop in during a drive. Nationally, blood supplies usually dwindle during the summer months. This year, Irene compounded the problem, prompting an immediate loss of more than 2,100 units of blood and potentially more, according to the Red Cross. If you are at least 17 years old (or 16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health, you might be eligible to donate. To help quickly pump up the Red Cross’ regional stockpile of perishable platelets and blood, become a giver. Make an appointment today. And tell ’em Irene sent you.

OTHER OPINION: IRENE’S LESSON

Safety first when disaster looms

E

XPERIENCE IS a harsh yet effective teacher. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 taught government how not to respond to a monstrous act of Mother Nature, and the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon taught emergency responders how to work together. Lessons from those tragedies underscored the highly effective planning that preceded Hurricane Irene’s lumbering march up the East Coast last weekend, a massive undertaking that included evacuating hundreds of thousands of people from their homes and shuttering subway, train and airport terminals in the nation’s most populous region of New York City as well as the urban centers of Washington, Philadelphia and Boston. The storm caused billions of dollars in damages, left millions of people without elec-

tricity and triggered widespread flooding as it dropped more than a foot of rain in some places, including parts of eastern Pennsylvania. On Monday, Vermont was still reeling from the worst flooding in a century. But the death toll from a storm that had threatened 65 million stands only in the dozens, a sad fact that could have been far worse. For the most part, people were ready. Providence played a part, too. Irene pulled its punch on Manhattan. In the aftermath, second guessers are whining that officials overreacted by closing beaches and mass transit systems. That’s the wrong message to take away from this hurricane. The next time an enormous storm is advancing, officials would be wise to prepare just as they did for Irene. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Can we really afford to keep eating unhealthy foods? MY WIFE and I recently had a few friends over for pizza, and our usual debate on politics and classism broke out feverishly. We sat there eating pizza and drinking soda, pretending it was wild-caught salmon and Brace’s apple cider. I mentioned that we were doing a poor job of eating healthy foods. My comment threw fuel into the debate fire, as I was told that middle-class people cannot afford to eat healthy foods. We are “classed” out of what seems to be a Godgiven right, my good friend said. “We have to shop at the mega ‘box stores’ to survive economically.” Searching for a witty comeback, I realized that most of us in the debate could stand to lose a few pounds. I looked at the chips, Pop-Tarts and iced tea in my cupboards and – while contemplating all of the health issues impacting Americans – realized there is a completely different formula that negates the “class consumption ceiling” (a newly coined phrase, I think). Take a look at what you eat and drink every day. If it is highly processed and comes in cellophane, or is a soft drink, stop consuming it. Instead, convert the dollars you would have used to purchase it

COMMENTARY CHET MOZLOOM (and the medications that often are consequential to bad eating) to buy nutrient-rich foods. I, for one, can greatly benefit from such a change. A quick Google search reveals that the average American adult consumes 4,000 calories a day but needs only 2,000. While I might think I need to join a gym and get my next co-pay together for hypertension medication, instead all I need is to eat well, work hard and go for walks with my family. When considering the economics of a poor diet, do the math. And don’t forget to add this to the equation: feeling better. How much do those 2,000 extra calories cost? What is the value of being healthy, feeling and functioning better, and living longer? In dollars, three liters of soda equals a salad for two. A candy bar equals a piece of fruit. One co-pay for high blood pressure pills equals a pound of wild-caught salmon. The conversions are limitless. As I write, I am digesting an evening dinner, which was ironically held at the

house of my friend who said we are outclassed when it comes to eating well. While I had been finishing my work day, my friends, my wife and two girls prepared chicken kabobs with peppers, onions, mushrooms and a zucchini that was grown in another friend’s garden. Also on the counter were tomatoes and cucumbers. I had the best meal I’ve had in months. I cannot tell you the cost of the two pounds of grilled chicken breast or the vegetables, but I can tell you the pizza and soda we had last week was $37. Best of all, my girls had fun making a healthy meal. In the future I can only hope to have the willpower to follow my own logic and, before sitting down to eat, ask myself which foods are really “affordable.” Chet Mozloom is executive director of The Lands at Hillside Farms, a 412-acre historic educational farm in Shavertown.

But he then states, “America has never taken full responsibility ...” I (America) never foolishly purchased property below sea level and then depended on others to make sure it didn’t flood. Why should I, and other Americans, be expected to pay for such folly? He seems to think there is no connection between U.S. government and taxpayers. That sort of thinking is precisely why our country is deeply in debt. The Army Corps of Engineers likely has been punished internally already. If anyone should be made to compensate, it is the corps. Yes, that also would come out of taxpayer pockets, but at least it would be clearly directed – as opposed to forcing taxpayers from all over the country to pay without specifics for something with which they were not directly or indirectly involved.

The law will cost millions of dollars to implement and create unnecessary barriers to voting for Pennsylvanians.

security forces, construction of temporary levees, sandbagging, road barriers and emergency demolition, Miller said. The designation will allow local governments and possibly volunteer fire and emergency service organizations to seek reimbursement for overtime costs and the rental of large chippers, bulldozers and dump trucks to remove debris and clear waterways, said Luzerne County Emergency Management Agency Director Steve Bekanich.

the county and local governments, and the tally had exceeded the million-dollar mark by Tuesday morning. Luzerne County is among 13 counties approved for the federal declaration. To be eligible, state governors must make a recommendation to the president. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett originally recommended 11 counties but added Luzerne and Sullivan counties to the request Monday afternoon. U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, RLycoming Township, joined Corbett on a flyover of areas impacted by the storm, including parts of Luzerne County, on Monday afternoon, said Marino’s spokeswoman, Renita Fennick. “They both agreed after seeing the devastation that Luzerne

County should definitely be included. The governor insisted on adding Luzerne County to the list,” Fennick said, noting Marino also contacted the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Monday night to recommend Luzerne County’s inclusion. Preliminary damage assessments are being completed to determine if the state will be eligible for additional federal funding to repair bridges, public works and debris removal, Miller said. The state has not received a federal declaration that allows financial assistance or loans to individual citizens and property owners, she said. Miller urged citizens impacted by the storm to report damages

to their municipality – even if they have insurance that will cover some or all repairs – to help the state compile an accurate damage assessment. “It’s important to note that this is not a means of signing up for assistance or a registry of any sort. This is simply to help us compile accurate and thorough information,” Miller said. If assistance is approved for citizens, it would likely be lowinterest loans, Bekanich said. However, the county must have at least 25 homes or businesses with at least 40 percent of uninsured damage to be eligible, and he does not believe the county will meet this threshold. “We’re not hearing of a whole lot of damage that would meet that standard at this point, but

there are still some homes that haven’t been assessed,” he said. The federal declaration that was approved is a relief to local governments, he said. “It’s good news for the county and municipalities because they have tight budgets, and every penny of reimbursement counts,” he said. Local governments seeking reimbursement will have to work with state and federal emergency management officials to submit project worksheets with detailed records documenting the expenses, including receipts, mileage records and time logs, he said. Bekanich said he will soon schedule a meeting with local government officials to explain reimbursement procedures.

Senior rallies his way to a fourth straight tourney title By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

EXETER – In his first high school tournament since winning a state title in 2010, Brandon Matthews took the best shots of his opponents and Fox Hill Country Club during the 10th annual Tryba Preseason Golf Tournament. The Pittston Area senior battled the course – which was in stellar shape after the weekend rain with the help of superintendant Ron Garrison – but the No. 8 hole was closed and 17B, which isn’t played too often, was

played to make up the 18 holes. Then Matthews dealt with Holy Redeemer sophomore Mariano Medico, who was playing with the standout and stuck with him on every hole before the Patriot took a stroke advantage after the 18th. After Matthews got past Medico, he had another Royal sophomore to worry about. Chase Makowski tied Matthews’ 1-under 69 through the first 18 and forced a playoff. It took two holes, but Matthews finally clinched his fourth straight title in the tournament

scoring four on No. 2, while Makowski settled for five. “Four in a row feels good. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my Agame today or by B-game,” Matthews said. “This one is very, very sentimental to me. I love this tournament. To go from three in a row to a record that cannot be beaten that’s special.” After Medico birdied No. 16, he tied Matthews for the lead at 3-under; but both struggled on No. 17 allowing Makowski to get into contention. Medico had an opportunity to bury Matthews on the 17th after

Matthews’ second shot sailed behind trees and his third shot sailed into a bunker. Matthews took a triple bogey 7 on the hole. Medico scored six, but his fifth shot cupped out otherwise, he would have taken a two-stroke lead with two holes to go. They both shot 3s on 17B and went to 18 with Medico up by one. That’s when Matthews birdied the par-4 18 and Medico bogeyed to give the Patriot the lead. “Since I was one down (after 17) I knew definitely I could easily come back because I knew I

could drive the green,” Matthews noted. “And there aren’t many players who could do that.” That’s exactly what Matthews did hitting a booming drive on 18 to help score birdie. He did the same thing on No. 2, the second playoff hole when he launched his drive about 30 yards in front of the green then ended the playoff. It was a similar strategy he used to win the state title when he blasted several long See TRYBA, Page 4B

Djokovic shoulders the load in return By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

NEW YORK — Didn’t take too long to see that Novak Djokovic’s right shoulder is feeling fine. Which was good, because he was on court for less than an hour Tuesday. He began his first-round match at the U.S. Open with a 121 mph service winner. Four points later, he closed that game AP PHOTO with a 120 mph ace. He whipped Novak Djokovic of Serbia serves to Conor Niland of Ireland during forehands exactly where he wanted them. He returned well, the first round of the U.S. Open in New York on Tuesday.

too. Playing his first match since Aug. 21, when he quit because of a sore and tired shoulder, the top-seeded Djokovic began setting aside any questions about his fitness for Flushing Meadows, building a 6-0, 5-1 lead before qualifier Conor Niland of Ireland stopped after 44 minutes. Niland had food poisoning. “Great opening performance,” Djokovic declared. “Today I didn’t feel any pain. I served well, and I played well, so I have

no concern.” He improved to 58-2 with nine titles in 2011, including at Wimbledon and the Australian Open, allowing the 24-year-old Serb to overtake Rafael Nadal — the defending U.S. Open champion who played his first-round match Tuesday night — atop the rankings. Djokovic is on his way to compiling one of the greatest seasons in tennis history, particularly if he can earn his first See OPEN, Page 6B

Hazleton Area graduate Russ Canzler was named the International League’s Most Valuable Player, league officials announced Tuesday. Canzler batted at a .312 average in a 125 games for the Durham Bulls. He totaled 18 home runs and 79 RBI for the Tampa Bay Rays’ Triple-A affiliate. With the honor, Canzler becomes only the second player to win Top Star honors at the Triple-A All Star Game and IL MVP in the same season. He accounted for all of the runs scored in the all-star game, blasting a threerun home run. He also received the nod for the International League All-Star team at third base, despite starting much of the second half in the outfield. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s Jorge Vazquez represented the designated hitter spot on the all-star team. His 31 home runs lead the league and is the new SWB franchise record, breaking Shelley Duncan’s club record of 30. A former 30th round draft pick with the Chicago Cubs, this season marks the first time Canzler played above the Double-A level. See CANZLER, Page 6B

On the Mark Ticket To Rock is a mare loaded with class and tonight she invades the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs for the $29,000 Fillies & Mares Open Pace. The four-year old Rocknroll Hanover mare has been facing the top mares in the country all season long, with a little bit of success. I guess it’s hard to complain when only a so-so campaign has still bankrolled $232,555 on the season. Her last several races have been against the top mare in the world in Dreamfair Eternal, she’s not in this field. In my honest opinion class relief alone should be enough for the Ross Croghan trained mare to make this featured race a laugher…..so when betting the tenth, put your money on No. 7 to win for fun!

Chrismer

Crestwood alum Jenna Chrismer was named Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week Tuesday after leading the No. 8 Penn State field hockey team to a split against two ranked opponents in Charlottesville, Va. Chrismer becomes Penn State’s first winner of the award since Lake-Lehman graduate Kelsey Amy won it on Oct. 5, 2009. In her first two collegiate games, Chrismer scored two goals – one in each game against No. 11 Old Dominion and No. 3 Virginia. Her first goal came Friday when she shot the ball left to right from 10 yards out and buried it to score the Nittany Lions’ first goal of the season in a 5-2 loss to Old Dominion. Chrismer supplied the goahead goal at the 7:33 mark of Sunday’s 3-0 win over Virginia. With her second tally of the year, Chrismer is tied with Hannah Allison for the team lead in goals. The Penn State freshman shares the weekly award with Northwestern’s Maddy Carpenter.

Halladay leads Phillies over Reds The Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Roy Halladay allowed a pair of hits in seven innings and drove in three runs with the second double of his career on Tuesday night, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Halladay (16-5) gave up Brandon Phillips’ leadoff single in the first inning, then dominated the team he no-hit in the playoffs last season. His bases-loaded double in the sixth inning off Bronson Arroyo (8-11) made it 6-0. Ryan Howard hit two of the Phillies’ four homers, giving him 29 for the season. He also reached 100 RBIs for the sixth straight year, a team record. Howard had been tied with Hall of Famer Chuck Klein for consecutive 100-RBI seasons. Nationals 9, Braves 2

ATLANTA — Ryan Zimmerman had three hits, including a three-run home run, and Washington hit four homers to beat Jair Jurrjens and the Braves. Michael Morse also had three hits, including a homer, while driving in three runs. Danny Espinosa and Laynce Nix also hit homers for Washington. The Braves, coming off an unusual three-day break after two games at the New York Mets were postponed by Hurricane Irene, were shut down by Livan Hernandez (8-12). Hernandez allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in seven innings. Marlins 6, Mets 0

NEW YORK — Javier Vazquez allowed only three singles in seven sharp innings for his first win in more than a month and the Marlins broke out of their funk with a five-run seventh to beat the Mets. Logan Morrison had a two-

run single and Mike Cameron doubled to start the big rally for the Marlins, who shuffled their slumping lineup and took advantage of a defensive gaffe on Vazquez’s bunt. Mike Stanton added his 31st homer in the ninth, an opposite-field drive into the second deck in right. Florida managed only two runs, on a pair of solo homers, while getting swept in Monday’s doubleheader after both teams returned from a two-day break due to Hurricane Irene. But the last-place Marlins broke through Tuesday against familiar foil Mike Pelfrey (7-11) and won for just the fifth time in 24 games. Astros 8, Pirates 2.

HOUSTON — Rookie Henry Sosa allowed two hits and struck out seven over six innings, Matt Downs got his league-leading 12th pinch-hit RBI and the Houston Astros rallied for a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jose Altuve homered in the fifth against Charlie Morton (9-8) to tie it 2-2 and the Astros broke loose with six runs on a season-high seven hits in the sixth inning. Downs pinch hit for Sosa and singled to left for the goahead run. Altuve added an RBI single, J.D. Martinez drove in two runs with a single, and Carlos Lee and Jimmy Paredes also had run-scoring hits in the inning. Cardinals 2, Brewers 1

MILWAUKEE — Edwin Jackson pitched seven solid innings and singled home the go-ahead run to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers. Despite the win, the Cardinals still are 91⁄2 games behind the Brewers in the NL Central with have 27 games remaining.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Sabathia finally solves Sox as Yankees win The Associated Press

BOSTON — CC Sabathia snapped out of his Red Sox funk, striking out 10 in six innings to beat Boston for the first time in five tries this season and lead the New York Yankees to a 5-2 victory on Tuesday night. The win was the Yankees’ third in 13 games against their AL East rival this season. Boston still leads the division by one-half game. Sabathia (18-7) had been dominant against the rest of baseball this year, but 0-4 with a 7.20 ERA against the Red Sox. He threw a season-high 128 pitches, allowing two runs on 10 hits and two walks. Orioles 6, Blue Jays 5

BALTIMORE — Ryan Adams capped a two-run, 10thinning rally with an RBI single and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays . Matt Wieters led off the Baltimore 10th by drawing a walk off Brian Tallet (0-2), who was trying for his first career save. Mark Reynolds walked and, after Robert Andino bunted a foul third strike, pinch hitter Jake Fox hit a gametying single to right with Reynolds taking third. Tigers 2, Royals 1

DETROIT — Ramon Santiago hit a solo homer in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Detroit Tigers a win over the Kansas City Royals. Santiago, who entered the game in the eighth as a pinchrunner, lifted Aaron Crow’s pitch over the right-field wall for only his fourth homer of the year. Joaquin Benoit (4-3) pitched two innings for the Tigers, matching his longest

outing of the season. Indians 6, Athletics 2

CLEVELAND — Carlos Santana and Jack Hannahan hit two-run homers for Cleveland and the scrappy Indians kept pace in the AL Central race by beating the Oakland Athletics. Jeanmar Gomez (1-2) allowed one unearned runs over six innings after being recalled from Triple-A Columbus. He took the rotation spot vacated by Josh Tomlin, who is on the Indians’ disabled list with a sore right elbow. White Sox 8, Twins 6

CHICAGO — Alejandro De Aza drove in a career-high four runs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a win over the Minnesota Twins. De Aza hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to erase an early deficit and help the White Sox win their fifth straight game. He also walked and scored two runs. Paul Konerko doubled, scored twice and had an RBI during Chicago’s decisive fiverun rally in the fifth. Rangers 2, Rays 0

ARLINGTON, Texas — Josh Hamilton hit a towering home run and Scott Feldman threw six scoreless innings in a spot start for the AL West-leading Texas Rangers in a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Hamilton hit the first pitch of the sixth inning thrown by rookie right-hander Jeremy Hellickson (11-10) deep into a second deck of seats in right field. It landed an estimated 449 feet from home plate, his 19th homer, and broke a scoreless tie.

T H I S D A T E I N B A S E B A L L Aug. 31 1915 — Jim Lavender of the Chicago Cubs pitched a 2-0 no-hitter in the first game of a doubleheader against the New York Giants. 1935 — Vern Kennedy of the Chicago White Sox pitched a no-hitter to beat Cleveland 5-0. Kennedy also had a bases-loaded triple. 1937 — Rudy York of the Tigers hit his 17th and 18th home runs of the month to set a major league record as Detroit beat Washington 12-3. 1950 — Brooklyn’s Gil Hodges tied a major league record by hitting four homers against the Boston Braves in the Dodgers’ 19-3 rout. Hodges also added a single for 17 total bases. 1959 — Sandy Koufax of Los Angeles struck out 18 Giants for a National League record as the Dodgers

beat San Francisco 5-2. 1974 — In a Northwest League game, Portland manager Frank Peters rotated his players so each man played a different position each inning. The strategy worked for an 8-7 win over Tri-Cities. 1990 — The Griffeys — 20-year-old Ken Jr. and his dad, Ken, 40 — made major league history, leading Seattle to a 5-2 victory over Kansas City. The Griffeys were the first father and son to play together in the big leagues. 2001 — Pitcher Danny Almonte who dominated the Little League World Series with his 70 mph fastballs was ruled ineligible after government records experts determined he actually is 14, and that birth certificates showing he was two years younger were false. The finding nullified all the victories by his

Bronx, N.Y., team, the Rolando Paulino Little League All-Stars, and wiped out all its records — including Almonte’s perfect game and an earlier no-hitter. 2004 — Omar Vizquel went 6-for-7 to tie the American League record for hits for a nine-inning game in Cleveland’s 22-0 victory over the New York Yankees. The 22-0 beating, was the largest loss in the history of the Yankees’ organization. Cleveland matched the largest shutout win in the major leagues since 1900, set by Pittsburgh against the Chicago Cubs on Sept. 16, 1975. 2005 — Florida’s Jeremy Hermida became the first player in more than a century and the second to hit a grand slam in his first major league at-bat, connecting in the seventh inning off the St. Louis Cardinals’ Al Reyes.

Laird’s longball in 14th keeps Yankees hanging on The Times Leader Staff

One night after a loss ended their chances of winning a fifth straight International League North Division title, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees are fighting for their playoff lives at Lehigh Valley. The Yankees picked up a 4-1 victory in 14 innings over the IronPigs at Coca Cola Park to remain mathematically alive in the race for the I.L. Wild Card. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre moved 4.5 games behind Lehigh Valley, the Wild Card leader,

with six games remaining. The IronPigs have five games remaining. Gwinnett, the co-leader with the IronPigs, also lost Tuesday night and has seven games remaining. For the Yankees to win the Wild Card, they must win out and hope the Braves and ’Pigs don’t win any more games. Brandon Laird slammed a three-run home run in the top of the 14th to left, his 16th of the year, to give the Yankees the victory. Andrew Brackman (3-6), who extended his scoreless streak to 8 2/3 innings, pitched the final two innings allowing

three hits and a walk to pick up his first victory since April 24 when he was in the starting rotation. Jorge Vazquez tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the ninth with his 31st home run of the season. The longball set the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre franchise record for home runs in a season, breaking Shelley Duncan’s mark set in 2009. The towering shot to center leading off the ninth came off Lehigh Valley’s Justin De Fratus. David Phelps started the game for the Yankees. He lasted seven innings and gave up seven hits

Paterno said Tuesday at his weekly press conference. “They both are ready to play and they’ve done everything we’ve asked them to do. And both of them continue to contribute to the football team and get us ready to play as well as we can offensively, so we’ll play both. “What goes on from there … I don’t have a crystal ball.” That’s not exactly what the two signal-callers were hoping to hear. One imagines McGloin and Bolden have been given more details than Paterno cared to discuss in public on Tuesday. Paterno not only sidestepped questions about who would start the game, he also would not say how the rotation would work. By drive? Every other series? Two quarters apiece? Regardless of the method, both quarterbacks have voiced their displeasure this summer about splitting time during the regular season, saying they preferred the coaches pick one or the other. “To be honest, I’m not comfortable with a two-quarterback system,” McGloin said during preseason camp. “Whether it’s me or Rob, I think that having one quarterback makes you more comfortable with the team. It makes the linemen more comfortable, it makes the wideouts more comfortable. The wideouts don’t need to be thinking, ‘Well, Matt’s in – he’s going to throw it this way. If Rob’s in, he’s going to throw it this way.’ “It’s bad news if you have two quarterbacks in and out. ... It’s a comfort feeling. If I’m in there the whole game, then I’m getting more comfortable with every rep, and I’m realizing what the defense is doing. If I’m in there every other series, I’m not getting comfortable,

drives in York on that breezy day last October. “It’s the best feeling in the world,” Matthews said about knowing he hits long drives. “It was the same feeling on No. 18 at states. That was the longest drive of my life. It feels good every time you hit one of those.” Medico and Makowski couldn’t stop Matthews’ run, but they contributed to a run of their own as the Royals claimed their second straight Tryba tournament team championship holding off Pittston Area 296-299. Redeemer also got strong scores from Will Fulton and Eric Jones, who scored 77 and 80 respectively. Those scores were slightly better than the Patriots’ Ryan Tracy (71), Matt Carroll (77) and Calvin O’Boyle (82). With several underclassmen, the Royals could be in the midst of something special. “At least for the next couple years we’re going to be good because I got a great sophomore class and they’re kids that have been around since they were five years old,” Redeemer coach Art Brunn Jr. said. “We knew neither team could play bad and win. And believe it or not we both played well today. We just played a little bit better.” Northern Division foes Dallas (302) and Wyoming Valley West (308) rounded out the top four team scores. The Spartan’s top

and just one run and he didn’t walk anyone. The IronPigs, who lead the IL Wild Card, broke a pitcher’s duel in the bottom of the sixth when they scored a run and took a 1-0 lead. The run came across when Pete Orr led off the frame with a double and scored when Brandon Moss singled two batters later to drive in the run. Lehigh Valley had opportunities to win the game in the bottom of the ninth with a runner on second and then in the 10th with a runner on third, but the runners were stranded.

I’m maybe getting tight on the sidelines. I just don’t agree with the two-quarterback system.” Bolden concurred. “I’d rather run a one-quarterback system,” Bolden said. “Both (ways) have their benefits and their faults, but my preference – I’d rather run with one.” Of course, things could still change before Saturday. Last year, Paterno was even more vague about his quarterback situation in the week leading up to the opener and said three quarterbacks – Bolden, McGloin and the now-departed Kevin Newsome – would all play. But Bolden was announced as the starter shortly thereafter, and he ran the offense for most of the first game. From there, he was firmly entrenched as the top quarterback until he suffered a concussion midway through the season. The last time Penn State had two different quarterbacks split snaps in the first half of the opener was in 2004 when Zack Mills and Michael Robinson topped the depth chart. But Mills was still clearly the starter when healthy and Robinson spent as much time in the backfield and split out wide as he did under center that year. In 1999, Kevin Thompson started every game in the regular season, but Rashard Casey still saw significant time throughout the year. Odds are that scenario won’t happen again this season, with one of Bolden or McGloin taking the job full-time at some point in September. For his part, Paterno is convinced the situation will work itself out without much fuss. “I think we’ve got a good situation at quarterback,” Paterno said. “We spend half the time talking about the quarterback … we’ve got 22 players. (The quarterbacks are) fine. That’s not a problem for us right now.”

Adu takes a second kick at pro soccer CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Freddy Adu was billed as the next oneword sports superstar like Tiger, LeBron, Shaq. He never lived up to the potential. Once American soccer’s savior, Adu bounced around European teams that left him forgotten by the public in the United States and an afterthought for a roster spot on the U.S. national team. Only 22, though, Adu has returned to MLS and the Philadel-

phia Union, still dreaming of a career stuffed with national team glory and Premier League uniforms. He’s back in the United States a mature and humbled young man. Adu has reunited with his former D.C.

Hurricanes hit with suspensions By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Quarterback Jacory Harris and 11 other Miami players who accepted extra benefits from former booster Nevin Shapiro will be allowed by the NCAA to play again, some as soon as the second game of the season. The harshest penalties handed down Tuesday were reserved for those who took gifts from Shapiro while being recruited. Defensive lineman Olivier Vernon will sit out six games, while Ray Ray Armstrong — considered among the nation’s top safeties — and tight end Dyron Dye will miss four games apiece. They are three of eight players, including Harris, who must sit out games and repay benefits before they can be reinstated. Miami opens its season at Maryland on Monday night. The Hurricanes still might

Irish coach knows what plays will work now, and plans to call plenty of them starting with 2011 opener. By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Brian Kelly’s play-calling from the sidelines could be expanded this season, starting with Notre Dame’s season-opener against South Florida on Saturday. It is not so much that he’s added to his complex spread offense in his second season with the Irish. He just knows now what plays should work with the personnel he has, especially quarterback Dayne Crist. A year ago, Kelly didn’t have that luxury when the Irish opened against Purdue, though they beat the Boilermakers, 23-12. “I think it’s knowledge of what you’re capable of doing more so than having more plays available to you. Knowing that these are plays that Dayne has executed very well over the past year, we can go back and look at the successes that he’s had in reading out a particular play or getting us in the right play,” Kelly said Tuesday. Crist started nine games a year ago before suffering a season-ending knee injury that required surgery for the second straight season. He won his job back by beating out Tommy Rees in a preseason competition for the starter’s role and showed Kelly he had the “escapability” to scramble out of trouble if necessary. Kelly couldn’t put a number on how many more plays he might be able to use in the opener, compared to a year ago in his debut as Notre Dame’s coach. “I think I feel so much better about it because I know what we can do. I’m going to call the plays that I feel like we have a history of success with,” he said. “It’s still going to be based upon what I believe these guys can execute, where I didn’t know (a year ago) what they were good at, really; we were throwing it out there and saying, ‘All right, let’s start here and go from there. “That’s how our offense kind of came together. We had to decide what we were good at, after Dayne went down. While Dayne was in there we were still kind of all over the map and figuring out what our strengths were, and now going into this game we have a good understanding of what our strengths are.” This Saturday’s game has an added dimension because there’s a Holtz coming back to Notre Dame Stadium. South Florida coach Skip Holtz, a Notre Dame grad, is the son of the last man to lead the Irish to a national title — his dad, Lou, in 1988. Skip Holtz was a member of the 1986 Notre Dame team and later returned to South Bend to be an assistant coach under his dad from 1990-93. South Florida is his third head coaching stop after UConn and East Carolina. He had the same record in his first season with the Bulls (8-5) as Kelly did with the Irish last year. Both won bowl games in their debut seasons with their new schools. “It starts with Skip Holtz and, you know, what he’s been able to do as a head coach, you know his football team is going to be ready to play, especially coming back to Notre Dame,” Kelly said. The Irish, whose four-game winning streak to end last season was predicated on a stout defense, will have to control Bulls quarterback B.J. Daniels, who has made 22 career starts. He’s thrown 25 career TD passes and amassed 4,787 yards of total offense. And he’s got the ability to run with the ball. Linebacker Sam Barrington, tackle Cory Grissom and corner Quenton Washington are veterans returning to the South Florida defense. Daniels is no stranger to Kelly, who used to coach in the Big East with Cincinnati. “We had to try to defend B.J. Daniels, and it’s a challenge to say the least. He’s extremely athletic, he can throw the football, and I think if you just look at the last game he played, he was the MVP of the Meineke Car Care Bowl, so he has confidence and momentum coming into the season,” Kelly said.

players must repay small amounts, all under $100, but will not miss any games. “They understand that their actions demand consequences,” Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst said. A 13th player, Marcus Robinson, was vindicated of wrongdoing. The NCAA’s ruling means Stephen Morris — who led Miami past the Terrapins last season — will be at quarterback for the Hurricanes to start the season. Harris, Spence, Benjamin, Forston and Ojomo all will be eligible to play when Miami hosts Ohio State on Sept. 17. “All we’ve done throughout this process is try to move forward,” Miami coach Al Golden said. Armstrong must repay $788, the believed worth of his extra benefits, while Dye will pay back $738.

NBC to show all events live ... somewhere Primetime broadcasts won’t change but every event will be available somewhere.

By RACHEL COHEN AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — NBC’s Olympic coverage in London will look very familiar, with one major twist. For the first time, the network plans to show every event live in some form — even if it’s just raw video streaming online. But the prime-time broadcasts will still use that traditional formula of human-interest features and taped competition. The minds behind that cover-

age will be steeped in the NBC philosophy of packaging the Olympics for a wide audience. “Today” executive producer Jim Bell will serve in that role for the 2012 Games. And the man who previously held the title, former NBC Sports Group Chair Dick Ebersol, will be an adviser to his successor, Mark Lazarus. “That’s what our approach on the Olympics has been and what it will continue to be,” Lazarus said. “Having Jim do that for the Olympics assures we’ll have that sensibility.” Of hiring Ebersol, Lazarus said Tuesday: “Dick’s experience and knowledge will be of great benefit.”

Earlier in his career, Bell was coordinating producer for NBC Olympics under Ebersol, who was adamant even as he left the network that showing events live during the day would hurt overall ratings. But to Lazarus, the sports fan of today demands immediacy — and that doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive to highly stylized broadcasts aired when people are most likely to be sitting in front of the TV. “I believe in that, and that will be some philosophical shift from my predecessor,” Lazarus told The Associated Press. Next year’s Olympics will test whether those broadcasts will

still be highly rated, too, now that they’re not the first opportunity for viewers to watch who wins the gold. “You can show things in its rawest form to satisfy that immediacy,” Lazarus said, “and then you can package it and make it a bigger story and broader and more inclusive of other elements, and people will watch it again and bring others with them.” The blending of old and new with the Olympics is just a piece of the broader evolution at NBC Sports that Lazarus is in the middle of. Comcast took over NBCUniversal in January, bringing new bosses — and the resources of the company’s sports cable net-

works. Lazarus, an outsider to both sides, came aboard as president of the NBC Sports Cable Group with the merger. Then Ebersol, the unmistakable face of NBC Sports for more than two decades, left in a contract dispute. He’ll also advise Lazarus on NBC’s NFL coverage. “I look forward to continuing my 15-year relationship with him,” Lazarus said. A former president of Turner Entertainment Group, Lazarus was suddenly overseeing a stable that included the traditional broadcast network of NBC; Comcast’s Versus and Golf Channel; its regional sports networks; and

Dollar signs proof of Vick’s recovery

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Just more than two years after being released from prison, out of work, mired in bankruptcy and facing an uncertain future, Michael Vick is again on top of the world. Vick, who served 19 months at a federal penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kan., on felony dogfighting charges before joining the Philadelphia Eagles as a third-string quarterback two years ago, signed one of the richest contracts in NFL history on Tuesday. Vick’s six-year, $100 million deal makes him the third-highest-paid player in the NFL, behind only Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. “It’s a lot of money, how ever you look at it,” Vick said. “Obviously, it’s going to create a lot of demands. I know what comes along with it, and I know how to handle it. But it’s not even about the money. It’s about the changes that have been made in my life. Kids have an opportunity to see that you should never count yourself out. “But at the same time, don’t put yourself in a position where you’ve got to make a miraculous comeback. That’s not what it’s about.” Steelers PITTSBURGH — The stars on the Pittsburgh Steelers will be in baseball caps by the second quarter of the team’s preseason finale against Carolina on Thursday. Then, the real drama begins. NFL teams must trim the roster from 80 players to 53 this weekend and there are precious few spots available on the veteran-laden defending AFC champions. Wide receiver Tyler Grisham has been in this position before. He’s spent time on the

practice squad in each of the last two seasons after failing to make the roster out of camp. He’s had another solid preseason but knows the odds are stacked against him. He’s likely no higher than sixth on the depth chart. He says his job is to make it hard for the coaches to cut him.

49ers SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Frank Gore says his agent is gone after what he considered a productive, all-day meeting Monday with the 49ers about a new contract for the two-time Pro Bowl running back. Gore would not say Tuesday whether an initial proposal was made, only that he has instructed agent Drew Rosenhaus to let him know when there is what he considers a “fair” offer on the table. That hadn’t happened yet to Gore’s knowledge. The 28-year-old Gore, third on San Francisco’s career rushing list heading into his seventh NFL season, has said he hopes for a new long-term deal before the Sept. 11 season opener against Seattle. Rosenhaus’ office said it had no comment, and Rosenhaus didn’t immediately return an email from The Associated Press. Giants EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eli Manning sees his dismal preseason statistics and isn’t concerned. Preseason is a time to get used to standing in the pocket, to get adjusted to new teammates and to take a couple of hits. And that’s just what the New York Giants quarterback says he has done in the first three preseason games. Manning has not had a ton of success playing behind a revamped offensive line, and without departed wide receiver

His showing Tuesday was the most noteworthy development in the men’s draw during an afternoon session that included a second consecutive first-round departure from the U.S. Open by the sixth-seeded French Open champion Li Na. Since becoming China’s first major singles champion at Paris in June, Li has gone 5-6, exiting in the second round at Wimbledon, then losing 6-2, 7-5 to 53rd-ranked Simona Halep of Romania on Tuesday. “Terrible feeling,” Li said. “I really want to do well after Roland Garros. But, I mean, it’s not easy to do. Always easy to say, ‘I want to do, I would like to do,’ but always lose early. Now I even lose all the confidence on the court. I was feeling, ‘Oh, tennis just too tough for me.”’ It’s the first time in 40 years that none of the women’s champions at a season’s first three Grand Slam tournaments reached the second round at the U.S. Open. Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova lost her first-round match Monday, while Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters withdrew because of a stomach muscle injury. The active leader for women’s Grand Slam titles, Serena Williams, was to follow Nadal in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Tuesday night. Earlier, top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki — who’s been ranked No. 1 for most of the past year but is still in search of Grand Slam trophy No. 1 — defeated 125thranked Nuria Llagostera Vives of Spain 6-3, 6-1. Afterward, Wozniacki was asked about criticisms that she lacks a big-time shot. “They can say what they want,” said Wozniacki, who is dating U.S. Open golf champion Rory McIlroy. “I’m the type of player I am.” Among the past major winners who advanced Tuesday were 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, who overcame 16 double-faults, including four in her last service game; 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic, whose blood pressure was checked by a trainer at the final changeover and said afterward she felt overwhelmed while thinking about the recent death of her grandfather; and two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova. Other winners included No. 4 Victoria Azarenka, No. 10 Andrea Petkovic, No. 11 Jelena Jankovic and three young Americans: Sloane Stephens, CoCo Vande-

Police say Crittenton was retaliating for a robbery The Associated Press

ATLANTA — A former NBA player who is accused of shooting an Atlanta woman to death appeared to be retaliating for being robbed of $55,000 worth of jewelry, police said. Javaris Crittenton, who was suspended from the NBA along with his ex-teammate Gilbert Arenas for having guns in a locker room, was arrested late Monday at a Southern California airport. He has been charged with murder in the Aug. 19 shooting death of Jullian Jones outside her house in Atlanta, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. Crittenton’s attorneys have said he will exonerated. Crittenton told police he and a friend were leaving a barbershop around 10:50 p.m. April 21 when

two teenagers surprised them as they returned to their car, according to a police report released to The Associated Press. One teenager held Crittenton at gunpoint and ordered him to “give me what you got,” he told police. He said he handed over a $25,000 black diamond necklace, a $30,000 black diamond watch, an iPhone and $25 cash, according to the report. Jane Robison of the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said prosecutors expect to charge Crittenton Wednesday with being a fugitive from justice and he may be arraigned later that day. An Atlanta Police spokeswoman said the timetable for Crittenton’s return depends on whether he waives extradition.

Payroll company ADP reports each month on how many jobs were created or cut by private employers. It can move the market because it comes out two days before the Labor Department’s employment report – although it’s sometimes out of sync with the government’s numbers. Analysts expect ADP to say that private employers added 100,000 jobs last month. The government said 154,000 private sector jobs were added in July.

Stocks make modest gains Stocks were mixed for much of the day Tuesday after an index of consumer confidence plunged in August to the lowest level since April 2009. Trading volume was also lighter than normal because many investors are on vacation. But news the Federal Reserve at its latest policy meeting on Aug. 9 discussed a variety of options to bolster the economy, including buying more Treasury bonds, was enough to send stocks higher at the close. The Dow Jones industrial average rose for the third day. Boeing Co. rose 2.2 percent, the most of the 30 companies in the Dow, after the aircraft maker said it received approval from its board to build a version of its workhorse 737 jet with a redesigned engine. That should help it compete better with rival Airbus.

SPRING LAKE, N.J. — If you fix it, they will come. That’s the mantra — and the desperate hope — of tourism-dependent towns along the East Coast as they deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, which hit just eight days before Labor Day. Places that lost boardwalks, restaurants, roads and other fixtures in the storm are terrified the tourists will simply call it a season and stay away until next summer. “The key is getting the word out,” said Celina Moose, the manager of a kite store in Kitty Hawk, on the Outer

Banks of North Carolina. “The beaches are open. The restaurants are open. We need tourists to come back.” The Jersey shore, like North Carolina, had Irene make landfall on its sands.

And while the land of Snooki and The Situation fared well as a whole, some places did not. Spring Lake lost much of its beloved synthetic boardwalk, a 2-mile miracle of modern engineering that was hailed as a national model of environmental responsibility because it used recycled plastic instead of rain forest wood. The storm surge from Irene wiped out about 1.5 miles of the boardwalk, sending planks into the sea, while twisting others into grotesque shapes; damage that can’t be fixed for Labor Day. So the town will have to make do with about half its beach, and very little of its boardwalk during one of the three biggest weekends of summer.

The sale announced after the market closed Tuesday ends a nearly two-year battle for control, with both sides agreeing to drop all pending lawsuits. Lions Gate and its next largest investor, Mark Rachesky, will buy back half of Icahn’s shares for $7 each, which is about what Icahn spent acquiring his stake in the company.

“It’s going to be nowhere near what we normally have open,” said Bryan Dempsey, Spring Lake’s borough administrator. “We’re trying everything we can, but we’re not going to put anyone in danger just to have a beach day.” Ocean City, N.J., suffered hardly any damage aside from some beach erosion. Now all that remains is convincing people to come for one last summer weekend. “We’re back in business, and looking to finish out what has been a really good summer,” said Frank Donato, the city’s emergency management coordinator. Elsewhere, it was much the same, as communities dug out and looked ahead to the holiday weekend.

Russia’s state-owned Rosneft teamed up with U.S. company Exxon Mobil on Tuesday in a multibillion deal to develop offshore oil fields in the Russian Arctic — one of the last regions with immense and untapped hydrocarbon deposits — in return for access to resources in the Gulf of Mexico. Because Rosneft does not have its own technology for deep-sea drilling, it was looking for partners to develop the offshore projects in the Arctic and other regions of Russia.

ADP’s report on jobs

Government and private reports have said manufacturing slowed during July. The Commerce Department’s report on factory orders will give details on how different industries did. The report is broader than the department’s monthly look at orders for durable goods. It includes products like food, gasoline, chemicals and paper. Economists expect that orders rose. That’s likely due to a resumption of the supply of parts from Japan after the March earthquake.

Jeff Hetzel of Stell Enterprises Inc. in Plains Township climbs down from heavy equipment at the demolition site of the former Eckerd Drug Store on Tuesday. Turkey Hill Mini Marts is relocating to the site in the near future.

A change in store

Enlarged Turkey Hill being built in Plains Twp. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

PLAINS TWP. – A vacant building in the center of the township is being taken down to make way for a Turkey Hill convenience store and six-pump gas station. George Albert of George Albert PE/ LLC, of Pittston, engineer for the project, said Turkey Hill is moving forward with the project that met some opposition when first proposed. Albert said the new location – just a half block from Turkey Hill’s current site – will include a 4,000-square-foot convenience store and prepared foods. The current store does not have gas pumps. Albert said the project cost is estimated at $1.2 million and will include changes to the entrances on West Carey Street and North Main

Street and to the traffic signal at the busy intersection. Albert said Turkey Hill hopes to open the new store by January. The building was once an Acme Market and last housed an Eckerd Drug store, but it has been vacant for six or seven years, Albert said. When the project was first proposed two years ago, there was some public opposition centered on the safety of the site because two schools are nearby. “I think the safety concerns were misconceived,” Albert said. “Turkey Hill will make improvements to increase safety.” Township Commissioner Ron Filipini said traffic is heavy around 5 p.m. when people are driving north on their way home from work. He said

the new location will be much safer than the current one that is not near a traffic signal. Albert said a driveway off of West Carey at the front of the property nearest Main Street will be eliminated and a driveway to the rear of the property will be right-turn-in and right-turn-out only. He said two of the three driveways on Main Street will be eliminated and the remaining one will be improved for better access. Albert said Turkey Hill will lease the property and the owner has agreed to dedicate the area at the corner of Main and Carey streets – known as The Brick – to the township and the Plains Lions Club. “That is a landmark in the community and it will be left in place for the community,” Albert said.

As Crown Vic bows out, police ponder options By JIM ANDERSON Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

MINNEAPOLIS — Among the many things Dan Starry learned to do before becoming a law enforcement officer 18 years ago was how to handle a patrol car — the venerable, reliable Ford Crown Victoria. The low-profile, no-nonsense Crown Vic, the sight of which has made motorists straighten up and drive attentively for more than three decades, has long been an iconic part of police department arsenals. Today, however, the last Crown Vic-

toria will be rolling off the Ford Motor Co. assembly line near St. Thomas, Ontario, and they will gradually begin disappearing from the roadways. “I think for cops on the street, the No. 1 question is: ‘What are you going to replace it with?’ ” said Starry, who is now chief deputy with the Washington County Sheriff’s Department. “Will the new cars be as dependable? Will they handle as well? … Will the equipment transfer?” Consumers haven’t been able to buy a Crown Vic new since 2008. But sales to police departments have remained

strong; Crown Vics hold 70 percent of the patrol car market. As state and local law enforcement agencies begin budgeting for next year and retiring their Crown Vics, they are faced with more than the typical car shopping. “It’s kind of hard to know how to plan ahead,” said Craig Woolery, public safety director in Cottage Grove, Minn. Agencies are looking primarily at three options: a new police interceptor from Ford based on its revamped Taurus, the Chevrolet Caprice and Dodge Charger.

NEW YORK — Consumers’ confidence in August dropped almost 15 points to the lowest level since April 2009 as worries about the economy fueled the wildest stock market swings since the financial meltdown in 2008. At a time when Americans are increasingly worried about a weak job market, higher costs for food and clothing and recent stock market turmoil, the falling confidence numbers raise new concerns about their willingness to spend and jumpstart the economy. That’s particularly important since consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. “Consumer confidence deteriorated sharply in August, as consumers grew significantly more pessimistic about the short-term outlook,” said Lynn Franco, director of The Conference Board Consumer Research Center in a statement. The Conference Board said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index fell to 44.5, down from a revised 59.2 in July. The number was the lowest level since April 2009, when the reading was 40.8. It also is far below the 53.3 that analysts had expected. A reading above 90 indicates the economy is on solid footing; above 100 signals strong growth. A number of factors contributed to the decline. The index, which is based on a random survey of consumers sent to 5,000 households from Aug. 1 to Aug. 18, captured the wildest week on Wall Street since the financial crisis in 2008. Four days into the survey period, on Aug. 5, S&P downgraded the U.S. federal debt and concern revived about the health of European banks. Following that, The Dow Jones industrial average had four consecutive days of 400-point swings for the first time in its 115-year history during the week ending Aug. 12. Besides debt talks and market fluctuations, Americans are still plagued by old economic worries. The nation’s unemployment rate is stuck at 9 percent. Home values remain weak. And shoppers are facing rising costs for everything from food to clothing as retailers try to offset their higher costs for labor and materials. Consumers’ views on jobs, in particular, have become more pessimistic. Those claiming that jobs are “hard to get” increased to 49.1 percent from 44.8 percent, while those stating jobs are “plentiful” declined to 4.7 percent from 5.1 percent. Those anticipating more jobs in the months ahead decreased to 11.4 percent from 16.9 percent, while those expecting fewer jobs increased to 31.5 percent from 22.2 percent. The proportion of consumers anticipating an increase in their incomes dropped to 14.3 percent from 15.9 percent. In a separate report, home prices in major U.S. cities increased in June for the third consecutive month, but remain below year-ago levels.

Confident investing?

Consumers are as pessimistic about the economy as they were during the recession – and that can mean an opportunity for investors. The Conference Board’s consumer confidence index for August fell to its lowest point since April 2009. It’s not surprising – people saw the Dow fall by hundreds of points a day this month. They’ve also been discouraged by reports that

showed manufacturing growth has slowed and more people have been laid off. Financial analysts say consumers will keep spending. But they’ll be selective about what they buy and where they shop. Many will stick to the essentials. That means revenue at some companies will hold up better than at others. Analysts say these companies are likely to benefit.

Here we are on the threshold of another gorgeous late summer day on the waning side of summer. Temperatures will warm up nicely this afternoon as skies go from clear to partly cloudy. The sun now takes the same path across the sky as it does on April 11 so, indeed, the afternoon shadows are lengthening. In fact, today marks the last day of meteorological summer, and so with no rain in sight our summer rainfall since June 1 will go in the books as being 17.34 inches, good enough for the seventh wettest summer on record. - Tom Clark

Zesty chicken enlivened by few ingredients

1

Swiss Chicken Limone is a vibrant chicken entrée that makes the most of a few simple ingredients. It takes advantage of the piquant saltiness of cheese and bacon, complemented by the citrus flavors of wine and lemon. A nutty rice pilaf and steamed baby red beets are a wonderful accompaniment to this dish. •••

FARE TIME

SWISS CHICKEN LIMONE Ingredients: Four chicken breasts, 4 ounces each, lightly pounded One large fresh tomato 8 slices Swiss cheese 8 bacon strips, not crisp 4 tablespoons olive oil 3 cups fresh spinach leaves 1 ⁄2 ounce lemon juice 2 ounces chicken stock 2 ounces dry white wine 3 tablespoons whole butter Method: Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lightly toss in flour. Heat oil in a nonreactive skillet over medium high heat. When it just begins to smoke, add chicken and cook until well browned on both sides. Add lemon juice, chicken stock and white wine. Reduce liquid to half, and chicken will cook through at this point. Finally, add butter and simmer on low flame until sauce comes together. In a separate pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and add spinach. Cook until wilted. Set aside. Assemble in layers with chicken , cheese and bacon. Finally, top with sliced tomato, cheese and julienned bacon strips. Place on tray and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Spoon sauce over top.

to Junk Food Land. All bets are off. No one gives you the admonishing finger if you follow a platter of funnel cake with a deep-fried Oreo chaser. In fact, as I carried around the deep-fried butter, I was bestowed admiring glances from other fair-goers. You have to love a place that offers ter? Or worse, I guess. The dish came something called a “Coronary Combo” piled high with whipped cream, and of deep-fried butter and chocolate-cov- there was the option of adding chocolate sauce. But I wanted the purest form. ered bacon. It was good.

Grilling chicken? Keep the skin on By SUSAN M. SELASKY Detroit Free Press

S. JOHN WILKIN/ FOR THE TIMES LEADER

Local fairs offer delicious delicacies By MARY THERESE BIEBEL mbiebel@timesleader.com

cake, the kind of decadence-for-a-day many fair-goers enjoy. But that’s just one option. You also can choose soup in a bread bowl, hot sausages, clams, corn on the cob and New York-style hot dogs from a vendor cart. You’ll probably also want to save some room for the giant sundae to be served at 2 p.m. Sunday. Lambert estimates the dairy folks who create it will use at least nine gallons of ice cream. Maybe 12. There’s also a group of students from Sullivan County High School who will have “every kind of pie … lemon meringue, pumpkin, you name it.” She recommends stopping by their booth

Pork barbecue simmering in a “preCivil War cauldron.” Apple dumplings. Chicken dinners prepared by one group of fire-company volunteers and pizza by another. Corn on the cob seasoned with garlic butter. Visit every fair in the region and you’ll find all those foods and more. It will soon be apparent that not every festival edible is a batter-dipped, deep-fried novelty. “Oh, we have those, too,” said Jody Lambert, secretary for the Sullivan County Fair. She said the 160th annual event, which begins today at the fairgrounds along Route 154 in Forksville, boasts its share of fried Oreos and fried cheeseSee DELICACIES, Page 4C

It’s the end of August, and you’re probably bored to death with grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts. In summer, we get in a rut and rely on simply marinating them — too conveniently — in Italian dressing before tossing them on the grill. That’s fine if you like plain chicken. And it’s a good way to grill chicken for sandwich wraps or for topping salad greens. But I prefer big flavor and moistness in my grilled chicken. To achieve that, the skin has to stay on. You can always remove it after grilling, eliminating the extra fat and calories. For guests, serve it with the skin on and let each one decide whether to remove it. To ensure you get crisp skin and good grill marks, start cooking the chicken skin-side down, watching for flare-ups. The chicken breast for today’s recipe is stuffed with a mixture of chopped sundried tomatoes (not the ones packed in oil) and fresh basil along with a light herbed Boursin cheese. Boursin is a creamy, spreadable cheese that melts really well. Sun-dried tomatoes are one of my favorite go-to ingredients. These chewy little tomatoes pack big flavor, and they’re a good match for basil. I generally buy the ready-to-eat kind. The ones See CHICKEN, Page 4C

an ear of roasted corn. The corn was the best of the three and didn’t even need butter. Not that it would have mattered at this point. Then, with a few hours of walking under our belts, my husband tried grilled beef kebabs, which were on the chewy side, though they did come with onions and peppers. Vegetables made a few appearances at the fair, most often fried, as in zucchini nachos. I thought a stuffed jalapeno might be tasty until I saw what it was stuffed with — a Butterfinger bar. While eating the kebabs, we shared a table with a young couple who offered us some of their fried Kool-Aid. They, like us with the butter, had been curious about what this bizarre-sounding item had to offer. Balls of fried doughnut-like dough revealed a hot-pink interior that tasted like Kool-Aid and had a fizzy tang. Not something I’d go back for. With an hour to go until closing time, we figured we’d throw caution to the wind and try one more thing. I lobbied for the cheesecake on a stick, but my husband convinced me the deep-

packed in oil cost more and will add fat and calories. When cutting sun-dried tomatoes, it’s easier if you use kitchen scissors instead of a knife. Instead of grilling the chicken, you can pan-sear it and finish it in a 350-degree oven. Just make sure the center of the stuffing reaches 165 degrees — the safe internal temperature for all chicken pieces. When you can buy bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts at a good price, stock up on them. They’re often labeled “chicken breasts with rib meat.” I debone the chicken, saving the bones in a plastic freezer bag for making stock. I also remove the tenders so I have an evenly shaped chicken breast. Save the tenders in a freezer bag to use for stir-fries or other dishes. •••

as well. ••• Also scheduled to open today is the Kiwanis Wyoming County Fair, where the action – and the eating – takes place along Route 6 in Meshoppen. Here Marge Singer, who organizes horse events including the high-school rodeo, recommends the home-style dinners dished up by volunteers from the Meshoppen Fire Co. “They’re famous for their chicken,” she said. If you like pizza, she said, try “excellent, thicker-crust pizza” the Triton Hose Co. will sell. The Kiwanis Club will have some yummy Philadelphia cheesesteaks, and Overfield’s apple dumplings will make a great dessert. “They’re the best,” Singer said. ••• The Great Allentown Fair, which continues today through Labor Day at the fairgrounds on North 17th Street in Allentown, has a cornucopia of food available. Check the fair website and you’ll read about various fans of the fair looking forward to corn dogs and Pennsylvania Dutch corn pies, turkey barbecue, gyros and “pot roast sandwiches at The Brass Rail,” Several people mentioned a stand called “Take A Taco,” someone named Val praised “Tom’s Vegetable Den for the best deep-fried cauliflower on the planet,” and a fan named Lori seems to be salivating for fried green tomatoes. ••• If you’re looking for savory

fat, but because our version was extruded, I’m not sure how to calculate calories. Let’s just call it an even billion. Yes, it was fun trying some truly decadent foods that are otherwise unavailable, even though I felt like a big ball of fried dough by the end. My guilt was assuaged by the fact that this is so far a biennial event for my husband and me and by the fact that I walked (albeit at a leisurely pace) for about six hours. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.

Place the chicken in the bowl and pour in enough water to cover. Refrigerate four hours. Meanwhile, stir together the cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and basil. Set aside.

foods with a touch of heat from the King of Herbs, you’ll find plenty at the Pocono Garlic Festival, set for Saturday and Sunday at Shawnee Mountain Ski Area in Shawnee on Delaware. This is where garlic can turn up in just about anything, including the funnel cakes. “I don’t know what to compare it to. It’s unique,” said Cody Wilmer of Apple Frankie’s, a concession stand that will offer funnel cakes topped with a blend of garlic, honey and butter. Apple Frankie’s also sells “regular” funnel cakes, Wilmer said, but “the garlic really outsells the regular.” Among the dozens of other

the grill grates. Remove the chicken from the brine and discard brine. Rinse the chicken well under cold water and pat dry. Carefully cut about a 1 ½ -inch slit in the side of each chicken breast to form a deep pocket. Do not cut through the other side. Place about 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture in each pocket, pressing it in so it’s not at the opening. Secure close with toothpicks if desired. Brush the skin with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and favorite all-purpose seasoning. Place the chicken breasts, skin-side down, on the heated grill. Cover the grill and cook about six minutes, watching carefully for flare-ups. Turn the chicken breasts when they easily come away from the grates. Continue grilling another 6 to 8 minutes depending on the size and thickness of the chicken breast or until cooked through. The internal temperature in the center of the chicken should be 165 degrees. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes before serving. ••• From and tested by Susan M.

Teenage swimmer who ‘loses’ his trunks must learn to cool his jets Dear Abby: After a messy divorce, I moved with my 17-year-old daughter “Allie” to Florida. I’m thrilled that she has adjusted so quickly to the lifestyle here, which revolves around the beach and backyard swimming pools. Allie now has a boyfriend, “Shane,” who is 19 and in college. I like him, and it appears he likes me too — maybe a little too much. Shane lives with his parents down the street, and he’s often at our house when he and Allie aren’t in school. Because I work at home and my office is adjacent to the pool, I can’t seem to escape him. When Allie is doing her homework or talking on

DEAR ABBY ADVICE the phone, Shane swims alone and does a fair amount of “preening.” I have the feeling he does it to gain my attention. The other day, after jumping in the pool, he surfaced without his swim trunks and said the pool jets had ripped them off him. Then he got out of the pool and put them back on in front of me. When I told him I found the situation embarrassing, he shrugged and smiled. Being from the Midwest, I’m used to people behaving and dressing more modestly. Here, it seems like anything goes, and the skimpier the clothing, the better. Am I a prude, or

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

should I listen to my instincts that something is not right? And what do I say to Shane that will allow me to keep my dignity? — Taken Aback in Tampa Dear Taken Aback: The pool jets did not rip the trunks off your daughter’s boyfriend. It appears she is involved with an exhibitionist. If it happens again, tell him you find what he’s doing to be disrespectful and offensive, and if he wants to parade his shortcomings at his own home that’s his privilege, but at yours his pants should stay on at all times.

a recovering one. I left my ex-husband because of his drinking. My son has been in rehab and relapsed many times. I have gone through every last financial and emotional option with him. At this point, I’m feeling like all hope is gone. I’m writing to you because I am trying to find some thread of life to help me understand why bad things keep happening to me. How do I squeeze out one last drop of hope when my cup of faith is empty? I want to find a purpose to all the pain. — Struggling For Answers, Park City, Utah

Dear Abby: I have been through a lot and have never given up. Lately, however, I am having second thoughts. Everyone in my family is an addict or

Dear Struggling: While I appreciate your desire to help your son, for your own mental health, please accept that the battle to free himself from

addiction is his and his alone. You can’t conquer it for him, much as you might hope to. If you haven’t already done so, attend some meetings of support groups for families and friends of people who have addictions. There you will find others who are helping one another through the same issues you are encountering. Such groups are listed in your phone directory and on the Internet. Believe me, you are not alone in your search for answers.

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are the target of someone’s affection, though you are too immersed in your own needs, desires and wants to notice. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you are too enmeshed in another person’s business, it becomes difficult to be yourself. You’ll find ways to contain another person’s influence over you so that you can peacefully and powerfully coexist. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may feel like you’ve been caught in a storm. This is an opportunity to see who your true friends are. Fair-weather friends back away at the first thunderclap. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though you love to take care of others, do not do this to such an extent that they forget how to take care of themselves. They’ll only resent you for it later. Respect each person’s need for autonomy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are activities that you can’t really get out of doing, and yet you would rather spend less time on them. You’ll meet just the helpful person to help you remedy the situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are versatile and flexible. You’ll jump at the chance to do the job that is needed most, even when you’re not so sure you can pull it off. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do not give away your attention too easily, or it won’t be valued for the precious commodity it is. Singles: Anyone who hasn’t committed to you does not warrant your exclusive attention.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have an extraordinary connection with another person. You are bonded in intangible ways that cannot be detected by your five senses or understood from a worldly perspective. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Just because you show up at the designated hour doesn’t mean you’re on time. Sometimes the action starts later and sometimes much earlier. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You were once highly motivated to complete a job, and now it seems you need constant supervision in order to stay on course. It’s a sign that you need new influences and a good excuse to go out and seek inspiration. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A beautiful object can pass as ordinary or even ugly when it’s found in certain conditions. You have the artist’s eye. You will pluck out the object of beauty and return it to its rightful place. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is little to be gained from bending over backward to please someone now, especially if what this person really wants is a challenge. Find your edge. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 31). Clever and industrious, you’ll have fun creating opportunity. You’ll conserve resources and find great success recycling old items and ideas. October features social visits and information sharing. Bold self-expression will be your trademark in 2012. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 32, 4 and 46.
