Many roads flooded; schools cancel class By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The threat of the Susquehanna River reaching a height of 38.5 feet Friday morning led Luzerne County officials to call for approximately 50,000 people to leave their homes in areas unprotected by the levees and left commissioners considering a full-scale evacuation of the Wyoming Valley. The call would be made today based on updated information and in enough time for people to move furniture and personal belongings out of high water in the daylight hours and

to relocate to higher ground. In June 2006 more than 100,000 people were ordered to evacuate because of high water when the river rose to 34.14 feet. Already officials called for school districts to cancel classes, roads to be shut down, flood gates be put up on the Market Street Bridge, portal gates closed on the River Commons and the Pennsylvania National Guard be activated to assist with the developing emergency.

Emergency landing made An American Eagle flight that originated at LaGuardia Airport in New York made an emergency landing Wednesday afternoon at the WilkesBarre/Scranton International Airport after the pilot reported a smell of smoke in the cockpit and cabin. Michael Conner, assistant director of the airport, said American Eagle flight 4558, which had 11 passengers and three crew members, was en route to Cleveland, when it requested permission to land. The plane landed safely at the airport at around 12:15 p.m. Conner said the smell of smoke dissipated by the time the aircraft landed.

Ex-judge moved to Oklahoma

Mark Ciavarella was transferred earlier this week from Philadelphia federal detention center. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella has been transferred from a federal detention center in Philadelphia to a similar center in Oklahoma, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Ciavarella was transferred on Tuesday to the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City, a facility that is a hold-over center for inmates in the process of being transferred to a federal prison where they

will serve their sentence, said Chris Burke, a department spokesman. Burke said the location of the facility at which Ciavarella has been designated Ciavarella to serve his sentence will not be not publicly released until he arrives at that facility. Ciavarella’s attorney, William Ruzzo, said Wednesday he does not know yet where Ciavarella will serve his sentence. Ciavarella, 62, had been held at a federal detention center in Philadelphia since he was sentenced last month to 28 years in prison on corruption charges relating to his acceptance of nearly $1 million from the builder of two juvenile centers the county utilized.

The length of time he will remain at the Oklahoma center will be dependent upon when the U.S. Marshal’s Office can transport him to the prison where he will serve his sentence, Burke said. “It depends on where he is going and when the marshals have time to move him on a plane or bus,” Burke said. There are 117 federal prison facilities in the United States, of which nine are located in Pennsylvania. The decision on where inmates serve their sentences is made solely by the Bureau of Prisons. The bureau considers multiple factors, including the nature of the inmate’s offense and the length of sentence.

A former New Jersey police officer was sentenced Wednesday to 85 months in prison for a string of bank robberies he committed in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including a bank in White Haven. Carl Holliday, 33, pleaded guilty to committing the robberies between July and December 2010, including a PNC Bank branch in White Haven on Nov. 18, 2010. He also admitted to robbing a Rite Aid Pharmacy in White Haven on Dec. 20, 2010. Holliday was formerly employed as a police officer in Bridgeton, N.J., in 2006 U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik ordered Holliday to pay restitution of $22,360.

Augello said Marcy Marcy will have to register his address under Megan’s Law for his entire life. The girl, now 8, did not speak at Wednesday’s sentencing. Marcy, who is known to the girl, also did not speak, but presented a letter to Augello saying he is innocent of all charges. In May, Marcy filed a Post Conviction Collateral Relief request, where he alleged ineffective counsel, in that his attorney did not present “physical evidence” and that his attorney failed to call

witnesses to testify that the girl’s testimony was not credible. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts. Marcy had been represented by attorney Jonathan Ursiak at the time of his trial. At Wednesday’s sentencing, Marcy was represented by attorney Joseph Yeager. At the February trial, the girl testified in detail about Marcy’s alleged acts, while witnesses called by Marcy’s attorney testified the girl had been lying, had been misbehaving and that the girl never reported the abuse to her family. “The evidence was clear (at the time of trial) that a girl of her age would not be able to testify to that detail unless she had actually experienced it,” Roberts said. According to court papers, a caseworker from Luzerne County Children

and Youth Services notified borough police of suspected child abuse on July 7, 2009. Officer Michael Lehman investigated. On July 28, the girl, a kindergartner, told police that Marcy kept two magazines with “bad stuff in them” in a toy box at his home. The girl said Marcy raped her and committed other sexual acts. The victim reported the abuse to her grandmother, who at the time was caring for her. According to the affidavit, the grandmother told the girl “it was a dream” and to “just tell him to stop and throw the book away.” On Nov. 23, 2009, a second interview was conducted with the girl, who is now in foster care. Police said in arrest papers the child’s allegations remained consistent throughout the investigation.

Gas CEO takes on protesters

By MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — The chief executive of one of the top U.S. natural gas producers delivered a blistering rebuke of critics of shale gas drilling on Wednesday, calling them fear-mongering extremists who want Americans to live in a world where “it’s cold, it’s dark and we’re all hungry.” Speaking at an industry conference in Philadelphia, Chesapeake Energy Corp. CEO Aubrey McClendon said that gas drilling has been done safely for decades using a process called hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.” Environmental activists say that fracking and the drilling boom it’s created has led to polluted air, has tainted groundwater and has made people sick. McClendon accused those critics of distorting the facts. He asserted there have been only a few dozen cases of methane migration of well-water supplies in northeastern Pennsylvania, and that residents were merely inconvenienced. “Looking back, was anybody

hurt? Was there any permanent or even temporary environmental damage? No, no and no. Some folks were inconvenienced, for sure, and for that we’re deeply sorry,” McClendon said. But he said the industry’s benefits — including lower home-heating bills, tens of thousands of new jobs, and millions of dollars of landowner wealth — more than outweigh the isolated cases of contamination. He also said that new well-casing standards in the state have largely eliminated the methane problem. “Problem identified, problem solved. That’s how we do it in the natural gas industry,” said McClendon. In fact, some residents with contaminated water wells have been forced to get their water delivered for months or years, and say their home values have been destroyed. Last month, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection announced that it’s investigating a fresh case of methane contamination. McClendon, who met with reporters after his speech, said in response to a question from The

Associated Press that he wasn’t minimizing the problems, just trying to put them into context. “We moved into an area that hadn’t seen a lot of drilling, that had pretty unusual surface geology,” he said. “We had some problems in the beginning. We think we’ve got them fixed.” In his speech, McClendon blasted organizers and participants in an anti-drilling rally held outside the convention center. “Remind me: What value have the protesters outside created? What jobs have they created? You know the answer and so do I,” he said. “So it’s time that we contrast what we do for a living with what they do for a living.” He said the opponents’ goal is to shut down gas drilling altogether. “What a glorious vision of the future: It’s cold, it’s dark and we’re all hungry,” said McClendon, who co-founded Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake, the most active gas driller in the Marcellus Shale and nationwide. “I have no interest in turning the clock back to the dark ages like our opponents do.” Environmental activists are countering the industry meeting with their own two-day event focusing on the negative impacts of gas drilling.

Dozens of 911 calls from Nevada IHOP detail frantic scene from deadly shooting rampage. By SANDRA CHEREB Associated Press

Superheroes go to war in new comics

DC Comics is bringing back the venerable war comic ‘Men of War’ with a contemporary twist that bridges the military with superheroes. The two titles, ‘Men of War’ and ‘Blackhawks’ are part of DC Comic’s ambitious relaunch of its fabled line of superheroes that began in earnest Wednesday.

CARSON CITY, Nev. — Dozens of 911 calls made from in and around a Nevada IHOP where a deadly shooting rampage took place detail a frantic scene, as witnesses described the gunman and dispatchers tried to determine if more than one person was involved. Callers described victims gunned down inside the Carson City restaurant on tapes released Wednesday. “There’s a shooting in the IHOP! Get there right now!” yelled caller Ralph Swa-

gler, owner of Local’s BBQ next door, as shots rang out in the background. “Now he’s coming back out. He’s shooting people in the parking lot! He’s shooting at us Sencion now!” A female caller instructed the dispatcher to bring “several” ambulances and said: “There’s a guy shooting everyone!” Tuesday’s attack by lone gunman Eduardo Sencion, aka Eduardo Perez Gonzalez, left four dead and seven injured. Sencion also killed himself. Officials released the victims’ names Wednesday as the search for a motive — and a time of grieving — continued. “This is unquestionably the most devas-

tating attack in Carson City’s history,” Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong said. “Yesterday our town was shocked to the core.” The dead included three Nevada National Guard members — the same number of Nevada Guardsmen who have died while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. They were Sgt. 1st Class Christian Riege, 38, of Carson City; Major Heath Kelly, 35, of Reno; and Sgt. 1st Class Miranda McElhiney, 31, of Reno. Also killed was Florence Donovan-Gunderson, 67, of South Lake Tahoe. Donovan-Gunderson was married to a retired U.S. Marine Corp member. The rampage started just before 9 a.m. AP PHOTO Tuesday, when Sencion stepped onto the pancake house parking lot from his blue Donna Eldred and Don Bourcier lay minivan with a yellow “Support Our flowers at a memorial outside the IHOP in Carson City, Nev., Wednesday. Troops” sticker on it.

people waiting to enter a New Delhi courthouse Wednesday, killing 11 people and wounding scores more in the deadliest attack in India’s capital in nearly three years. An al-Qaida-linked group claimed responsibility, though government officials said it was too early to name a suspect. The attack outside the High Court came despite a high alert across the city and renewed doubts about India’s ability to protect even its most important institutions despite overhauling security after the 2008 Mumbai siege. “Have we become so vulnerable that terrorist groups can almost strike at will?” opposition lawmaker Arun Jaitley asked in Parliament.

MORGANTOWN, W.VA.

Suspect had robbery term A 22-year-old man suspected of shooting five people to death in their rural West Virginia home and killing himself during a police chase had served 14 months for armed robbery at a state prison for young offenders, corrections officials said Wednesday. Authorities say Shayne Riggleman of Morgantown is also suspected of running down an elderly woman in neighboring Pennsylvania after fleeing the Monday slaying scene, then wounding a gas station attendant as he crossed back through West Virginia. He took his own life on a roadside in Kentucky. ISLAMABAD

Revenge blast kills 23 Two suicide bombers attacked the home of a senior military officer Wednesday in the western city of Quetta, wounding him and killing at least 23 people in a possible revenge attack for Pakistan’s recent arrest of a senior al-Qaida commander. Among the dead were the wife of Brig. Farukh Shehzad, the deputy head of the paramilitary Frontier Corps for the province, who was the target of the attack, and eight security personnel, including a colonel, officials said. The blast came two days after Pakistan announced that it had arrested in Quetta Younis al-Mauritani, a leading strategist in al-Qaida with responsibility for planning attacks against the West, along with two other al-Qaida figures.

‘Gumby’ bandit hits store A man in a Gumby suit attempted to rob a 7-Eleven store but became nervous and escaped with only some loose change, the San Diego Police Department said Wednesday. The unusual robbery attempt occurred Monday night at a store in the Rancho Penasquitos neighborhood. Initially the clerk thought the man was joking. But when the robber announced he had a gun and began fumbling with his Gumby suit, the clerk changed his mind. When the robber’s apparent accomplice in a car outside honked the car horn, the suspect fled, dropping 27 cents on the floor, police said. Officials are offering a $1,000 reward for the arrest of Gumby and/or the accomplice. The car was described as a light-colored minivan; the Gumby suit was green.

Thousands flee Texas wildfires

BASTROP, Texas — Firefighters began Wednesday to gain control of a wind-stoked blaze that had raged unchecked across parched Central Texas for days, leaving hundreds of charred properties in its wake and causing thousands of people to flee. As the crisis unfolded, Gov. Rick Perry headed to California for a GOP presidential debate while authorities commanded operations fighting the disaster.

commander. The staggering destruction has made the blaze the most catastrophic of more than 170 fires that have erupted in the past week — one of the most devastating wildfire outbreaks in state history, which been blamed for a total of four deaths.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Tripoli’s military commander said Wednesday that Moammar Gadhafi is cornered and the days before he is captured or killed are numbered, but another senior defense official contended that Libya’s new rulers have no idea where the fugitive former leader is.

President’s job package will focus on tax credits, school renovation projects Obama will ask a joint session of Congress to renew the 2 percent payroll tax cut.

By PETER NICHOLAS Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will roll out a jobs package today that strives to lift the ailing economy through $300 billion worth of tax credits, school renovation projects, job training for the unemployed and a program to prevent teacher layoffs, according to a person familiar

with the administration’s plans. In his speech before a joint session of Congress, Obama also will ask lawmakers to renew Obama the 2 percent payroll tax cut that was approved last December and to extend job-

less benefits, said the person, who requested anonymity to talk more freely about White House internal deliberations. The White House would not confirm specifically what is in the plan. And details could change as White House advisers fine-tune the package. The address being written by chief White House speechwriter

Jon Favreau looms as one of the most important of Obama’s presidency. Unemployment stands at 9.1 percent and the fragile economic recovery appears to have stalled. A new wave of polling this week shows that people are deeply pessimistic about the country’s future and dissatisfied with Obama’s management of the economy.

Martin reflects on impacts of 9/11 By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS TWP. -- “We are safer, we are not safe,” was how Keith Martin, the former director of Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security under Gov. Ed Rendell, summed up the 10 years since the Sept.11, 2001, attacks at a discussion at Misericordia University on Wednesday night.

She had a folder containing pictures of four young girls, not engaged in lewd acts, lying next to one another. Theroux admitted during the session that looking at pictures of young girls is “not illegal if there isn’t any sex acts involved,” the complaint says. Theroux claimed his interest in looking at young girls increased when his wife made him leave their bedroom.

Investigators searched the Theroux house, where Mary Theroux turned over a hard drive and pictures that were in a basket under clothes inside a bedroom closet. Theroux admitted to investigators he used certain keywords to search for child pornography, and even researching the state child pornography laws.

Memorial honors heroism of Flight 93

Dedication of the first phase will be Sept. 10, a day before the anniversary of the crash. By KEVIN BEGOS Associated Press

SHANKSVILLE — Off a tiny country road with old wooden farmhouses that could fit in a Norman Rockwell painting is the site of the Flight 93 National Memorial. It’s shielded by trees, but much of the park is open. A decade ago, on Sept. 11, the former strip mine was a much more devastating sight, strewn with wreckage from the crash. For early responders like Rick King, the assistant fire chief in Shanksville, some memories are haunting. “I remember walking through the woods, walking through the hemlocks, and I remember seeing tennis shoes lying on the ground ... empty,” King said, his voice cracking. “I couldn’t imagine what it was like there.” United Flight 93 was traveling from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco on Sept. 11, 2001, when it was hijacked. The four terrorists likely wanted to crash the Boeing 757222 into the White House or Capitol building but downed the jet in Pennsylvania as passengers fought back, just 20 minutes away from Washington, the 9/11 Commission found. The high heat and speed of the

crash — the plane was traveling families and respecting people’s 580 mph at impact — caused 92 privacy. “I see them about every year percent of the human remains to vaporize, coroner Wallace Miller and reflect on their loved ones’ lives,” King said. “Hopefully said, leaving little to work with. “The devastation was really in- we’ve helped them grieve as credible,” he said. “Obviously they’ve helped us get through this something I’d never seen before, also.” Flight 93 always or since.” occupied a unique Shanksville “The rural char- part of 9/11.

Amy Gabriel, who was at Shanksville on 9/11, is pleased a memorial will be built to honor the victims.

She drove all day and immediately began attending meetings that would last well into the night and early morning. “Walking into that operations center, to see all of the names up on the wall, it was emotional,” she said. “We dealt directly with the families. We worked closely with them.” Gabriel still talks with many of the people she helped. She said she will never forget her role in such a significant part of history.

SHANKSVILLE Continued from Page 1A

A weather vane near the top of the garden points due west towards Shanksville. “Shanksville is always somewhat forgotten in the discussions of 9/11,” Mussari said. “The 40 people on that airplane prevented it from hitting the Capitol when both houses of Congress were in session. Their act of courage and heroism ranks among the highest and purest forms of heroism and courage in our history.” Mussari leaned back and tried to put himself on the hijacked plane. “Think about it. You know this plane is destined to crash and you are traveling in

Her words – both spoken and written – are a part of the Flight 93 Oral History Project compiled by the U.S. Department of the Interior National Park Service. She always felt strongly about creating a national memorial for Flight 93, and she is pleased the memorial is set on the crash site. In the days after the crash, she helped build a temporary memorial at the site that was made of makeshift parts. “I always wanted it to be an organized thing with more literature, where people could learn, where children could take field trips and understand what happened there that day,” Gabriel said. “We really need to keep this in our minds and fresh or else we will be vulnerable to other en-

the last part of this journey,” he said. “You’re going about 565 miles per hour and you’re at the level where cell towers pick up cell phone calls and you have the kind of courage and determination to try to take over control of the aircraft.” The Mussaris have dedicated much of the last10 years to remembering Shanksville and the victims of Flight 93. Each year they produce an anniversary video about the crash and this year, the 10th, will be their final edition. They have completed 22 documentary films on Shanksville and Flight 93. “We will still visit the site; it’s only four hours away,” Mussari said. “We have many friends there. As much as we don’t want to let it go, there comes a time that you must.” Over the past decade, the Mussaris have taken many groups to the site –

counters with terrorism.” Gabriel will be driving to Washington D.C. on Sunday. Her husband, Bill, will be flying to Indianapolis. Liam, now 12, and their daughter, Bridget, 8, will be at home in the care of their grandmother. “We all need to remember the heroics on that flight, their sacrifices,” Gabriel said. “They made a decision to fight back.” Gabriel said she was honored to have been chosen to go to Shanksville. She said every anniversary of 9/11 affects her the same way. “The reason we had to go there is terrible,” she said. “It’s a period for this country we need to acknowledge and remember forever.”

more than 500 students and adults in all. “Once you’ve been there and you meet the people who are trying to keep the memories of those 40 victims alive, you feel much closer to them and the tragedy of Flight 93,” Kitch said. “You soon realize that 9/11 is much more than ground zero.” That’s not to disparage anyone, the Mussaris quickly note. They honor and respect every victim of 9/11 and their families. But they feel too often Shanksville is not held in the same regard as the other events of 9/11. Tony Mussari said when he first visited the site of the crash – and on every other occasion he and Kitch have been there – the experience is the same. People coming to see where the plane carrying the “40 angels of freedom” came down. Tony Mussari said the experience

have envisioned a national memorial rising in the woods and fields of western Pennsylvania. Felt, who is also president of Families of Flight 93, praised the partnership for the memorial among local people, family members and the National Park Service. The numbers of people who’ve sought out the site show the public desire to remember the victims. About 150,000 people annually have visited Shanksville in recent years, said Glass, who called the total “impressive.” In the end, perhaps it is fitting that part of the 9/11 story ended up in Shanksville, said Glass, of the Smithsonian. “Every chapter of American history has a few pages written in Pennsylvania,” he said.

KINGSTON – Amy Gabriel remembers riding on a bus with families of the victims of Flight 93 and passing by people holding signs along the roadside. The signs read: “They are our heroes,” and “God Bless You.” “That’s when I realized this was much bigger than I could ever have imagined,” Gabriel, 38, of Kingston, said. “I think that’s when I grasped the scope of 9/11 and its effect on the country and its people.” Just 28 years old at the time, Gabriel, with an American Red Cross Aviation Incident Response Team, was dispatched to Shanksville, where the jet crashed after passengers broke into the cockpit where a highjacker had taken over the controls. Her primary function was serving as assistant director of Red Cross operations and events manager. She planned three memorial services during her three weeks in Shanksville and helped coordinate a variety of services, such as mental, spiritual and physical health support. “That was a lot on my shoulders at that time,” she said. “I was there with the families at daily briefings where very graphic information is shared that would bring out many emotions.” Gabriel responded to the May, 2000, plane crash in Bear Creek, so she had some experience dealing with families of victims. In February 2009, Gabriel was sent to Buffalo, N.Y., when a plane crashed on approach, killing 50 people.

attractions. “We would have loved to have seen this memorial built in five years. But I think the reality has set in,” said Gordon Felt, whose brother, Edward, died in the crash. About $50 million in public and private money has been raised for the project, the Families of Flight 93 say. The dedication of the first phase is scheduled for Sept. 10, a day before the10th anniversary of the crash. More private funding is still needed to finish the remaining elements of the memorial, including a grove of trees, a visitor center and an entry portal with high walls framing the plane’s flight path. Before the crash, no one could

SARASOTA, Fla. — The 16 children who shared modern America’s darkest moment with President George W. Bush are high school seniors now — football players, ROTC members, track athletes, wrestlers and singers. They remember going over an eight-paragraph story so it would be perfect when they read it to the president on Sept. 11, 2001. They remember how Bush’s face suddenly clouded as his chief of staff, Andrew Card, bent down and whispered to him that the U.S. had been attacked. They remember how Bush pressed on with the reading as best he could before sharing the devastating news with the nation. “It was like a blank stare. Like he knew something was going on but he didn’t want to make it too bad for us to notice by looking different,” said Lenard Rivers, now a 17-year-old football player at Sarasota High. What the students can’t say for sure is how that moment changed them. They were just second-graders. Their memories were only beginning. “I think we all matured maybe a little bit,” said Chantal Guerrero, now a 17-year-old senior at Sarasota Military Academy. “... But since we were only 7, I’m not sure what kind of impact it had, because we didn’t know how things were before.” Lazaro Dubrocq, now a 17year-old senior and captain of the wrestling team at Sarasota’s Riverview High School, said it wouldn’t be until middle school when he started seriously pon-

is so compelling, nearly every visitor wants to leave some part of themselves behind to pay tribute to the victims. “In driving rainstorms, the people came,” he said. “In winter when the ground was covered with 6 inches of snow and in blistering heat, people came and left things. There is this connection with these brave Americans whose names nobody knew, but did what Americans do in their finest hour. “We must never permit ourselves to forget not only the act of courage, but the values of the people who were both on the plane and the people of Shanksville,” he said. Around the path from the Angel Garden is the Garden of Life. Here are rocks with words like “imagine, dream, belief and 125 more that speak to life.” A 37year-old Chinese Dawn Maple Tree

dering his place in the chaotic events of Sept. 11. Sept. 11, 2001, was a steamy Tuesday in southBush west Florida. The children were sitting in two neat rows in room 301 of Emma E. Booker Elementary School. Bush planned to sit in the classroom with them before moving to the media center to talk about a national reading initiative. Booker Elementary, in a lowincome area of Sarasota, was chosen for the Bush visit because Principal Gwen Tose’-Rigell had turned it into a highperforming school. As presidential trips go, it was routine, mundane even. The children were chosen because they were some of the best readers. Tose’-Rigell, who died of cancer in 2007, told The Associated Press in 2002 that Bush knew when he arrived at the school that some kind of plane had hit one of the World Trade Center towers in New York. But the news was sketchy, and the decision was made to proceed with the program at Booker. The moment when Card whispered to the president about the terrorist attack came when the children were reaching under their desks for a book called Reading Mastery II. On Page 153 was “The Pet Goat,” the story the children read aloud as the president followed along with his own copy. After the story, Bush quickly shook hands with the children and left each with some M&Ms in a box bearing the presidential seal.

stands nearby. A bench underneath awaits visitors. Neighbors stop by with their children and grandchildren to watch the fish in the ponds and learn about life and history, including the events of 9/11. “The selfless, heroic acts of those 40 people, put themselves in harm’s way to avoid a tragedy of even larger proportion,” Mussari said. “They made their last moments the most meaningful of service that makes us all proud to be Americans.” The first time he visited the site, Tony Mussari said he just stood there and looked at the large space where the plane crashed. “Something happened,” he said. “I thought, ‘What would you do if you were on that plane?’ That thought, that feeling was overwhelming.”

ber 3, 2011, at 3:17 p.m. in the Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, following a motorcycle accident. Born March 10, 1989, in Kingston, John lived in West Pittston and attended the Wyoming Area School District, where he excelled at baseball and football, received numerous scholarships and awards, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. He then attended Wilkes University, where a love of nature and the outdoors led him to a degree in Environmental Science. He was selected to participate in a field research trip to Yellowstone National Park before graduating Magna Cum Laude earlier this year and going on to receive a position as an Environmental Scientist with Enviro-Sciences of Delaware in New Jersey, to which he commuted daily. An avid hunter and fisherman, Beno loved being outdoors hiking through the woods and anxiously awaiting deer season to begin. He greatly enjoyed weight lifting, hanging out with his many friends, and spending time with his dog, Noel. Beno’s life will continue, however, not just in our hearts but also through his donations to the Gift of Life Organ Donor Program. John was preceded in death by grandparents Charles and Charlotte Chairge, Margaret and Anthony Catell, and Ruth Stanton-Clemow; and an aunt Joanne Chairge.

Jason Joseph Tavella September 1, 2011

Jason Joseph Tavella, 40, of Thornhurst, passed away Thursday morning, September 1, 2011, at his home. Born in Plains Township, on July 9, 1971, he was a son of Anthony Tavella of Thornhurst and Carolyn (Pientka) Tavella of Plains Township. Jason was a graduate of James M.

Pasonick might have to testify By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

Local engineer Michael Pasonick may be called to testify at the corruption trial of an unidentified area official that is set to begin in February, according to a court motion filed Wednesday by his attorney. Attorney Joseph Sklarosky Sr. filed a motion seeking to postpone Pasonick’s sentencing for his guilty plea to bribing a local school board member, which was scheduled for this month, until April 2012. In the motion, Sklarosky noted Pasonick signed a plea agreement that requires him to cooperate in the investigation of others accused of wrongdoing. Pasonick testified in June at the trial of former Lackawanna County Commissioner Robert Cordaro, and has been ad-

vised he will likely be called as a witness in another corruption trial that is scheduled for February, Sklarosky said. Pasonick The motion does not identify the person on trial. The only known public official currently awaiting trial on a corruption related matter is former state Sen. Raphael Musto. Musto’s trial was scheduled to begin on Nov. 1, but a court document filed last week noted that a case management conference has been called for that date, indicating the trial may be postponed. Sklarosky is seeking to postpone Pasonick’s sentencing until after he testifies at the upcoming trial so

that the judge can take his cooperation into consideration in deciding what sentence to impose. Musto’s attorney, John Riley, did not return a phone message Wednesday. Sklarosky could not be reached for comment. 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. Pasonick was originally scheduled to be sentenced today, but that was postponed pending a hearing on Sept. 14 to address objections to a pre-sentence investigation report. It was not clear Wednesday whether that hearing will be postponed.

Romney, Perry spar over jobs, Social Security By KASIE HUNT Associated Press

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Eager to tangle, Republican presidential rivals Rick Perry and Mitt Romney sparred vigorously over job creation and Social Security on Wednesday night in a feisty campaign debate that marked a contentious new turn in the race to pick a 2012 challenger to President Barack Obama. “Michael Dukakis created jobs three times faster than you did, Mitt,” Perry jabbed in the debate’s opening moments, referring to Romney’s Democratic predecessor as governor of Massachusetts. “As a matter of fact, George Bush and his predecessors created jobs at a faster rate than you did,” Romney shot back at Perry. The debate was the first of three in as many weeks. Perry and Romney stood next to each other on the debate stage at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman sided with Perry when he turned to Romney and said,

“47th just isn’t going to cut it, my friend,” a reference to the rank Massachusetts had among the 50 states in creating jobs during Romney’s term. But he also sought to rebut Perry’s claim to be chief executive of the country’s top jobproducing state. “I hate to rain on the parade of the great Lone Star State governor, but as governor of Utah, we were the No. 1 job creator during my years in service,” Huntsman said. Businessman Herman Cain, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania shared the stage for the debate hosted by MSNBC and Politico. Not surprisingly, none of the GOP contenders had anything positive to say about Obama, either his record on creating jobs or the health care law they have vowed to repeal if they win the White House. Bachmann said she would provide the “strong, bold leader in the presidency who will lead

that effort. None of us should ever think that the repeal bill will just come to our desk,” she said in a pledge that drew applause from the audience. Gingrich resisted an effort to draw him into conflict with other Republicans on stage. “I’m frankly not interested in your efforts to get Republicans fighting each other,” he said, sparking an even louder round of applause. He said all Republicans should “defeat efforts by the news media” to spark an internal struggle when the real objective is to defeat Obama in 2012. Social Security produced more sparks, when Perry said the program was a “Ponzi scheme” and added it was a lie to tell young workers they will ever receive the benefits they have been promised. Romney quickly referred to Perry’s book, “Fed Up,” in which the Texas governor said that by any measure the program was a failure. Perry also said states should be able to opt out of the program,’ Romney added.

retired four years ago and since has been residing in the Shickshinny area. His potential retention will expand the department to three officers. The matter of a four-wheel vehicle, which Chief Morris said is important during winter weather, was tabled until the October meeting at the insistence of Steeber. He said insurance costs and expenses for equipment essential to vehicle’s safe operation must be evaluated. The chief said a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe has been proposed for purchase, with funding, $6,000, coming from the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office. Because money is a tight, a majority of council said there are no funds at this time to consider a raise for Zehner. Tearpock-Martini insisted he is overworked and lacking in assistance. She said the town looks terrible and specifically cited weeds that are growing uncut off West Union Street. Steeber rebutted “I think the town looks decent. Chairwoman Rosalie Whitebread added: “It looks good.” These comments came after Tearpock-Martini’s remarks, and after council voted to hire Chris Hornberger of Shickshinny as a street department employee at a pay rate of $8 an hour for 34 hours a week. Steeber said that major reasons for the borough’s fiscal problems are the high costs of insurance and money used to fight legal issues. Weber said premiums secured from the state workers compensation program are projected to be up $12,000. Overall, she said Shickshinny has, because of a high number of claims in 2007 and 2008, a high incident ranking, resulting annual premiums of $54,000. --Tom Huntington

Supervisors approve sewers for Bulford Farms homes JACKSON TWP. – Supervisors dispelled rumors Tuesday surrounding the Bulford Farms housing development sewer extension project before unanimously adopting the ordinance. The sewer extension project ordinance involves 19 properties on Bulford, Old Field and Long Meadow Roads.

The project will install sewer lines to the homes. But residents of the development on neighboring streets came out to sort out rumors from fact. Dr. Ian Kellman of Hampton

The American Red Cross set up shelters for evacuees. The centers were at Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke, the State Street Elementary School in Larksville and the Pittston Area High School in Yatesville. On Wednesday night Gov. Tom Corbett urged residents in central and eastern Pennsylvania to remain vigilant in light of continued rain, quickly rising rivers and streams, as well as dangerous flash flooding resulting from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. “This is not a time to panic; this is a time to prepare,” Corbett said during a media briefing at the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Harrisburg. “Also, if you must drive, slow down, and never try to drive through standing water on roadways or around barricades.” The governor noted that the emergency proclamation he issued on Aug. 26 in anticipation of Tropical Storm Irene is still in effect. The governor spoke with the media after receiving a briefing from emergency workers who have been continuously monitoring the situation at PEMA headquarters.

the 1 a.m. Friday crest it would be the second highest level since the Tropical Storm Agnes swelled the river to 40.91 feet on June 24, 1972, and unleashed a flood of destruction on the valley. Since then, a levee system that protects the valley to a river height of 41 feet was built. Heavy rains locally fed streams and creeks that feed in to Susquehanna and equally drenching storms saturated the basins in upstate New York that drain into the river upstream. The difficulty in predicting the storm and its movement back and forth between the basins, created a sense of urgency for officials said Jim Brozena, executive director of the Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority that oversees the levee system.

Brozena and other county officials briefed approximately 50 municipal, fire, police and emergency response personnel at a 5:30 p.m. meeting at the county Emergency Management Agency building on Water Street. “For those of you that don’t know, this was so gradually evolving that things just kicked in … within less than four hours that we went from a very minor event that would cause minimal damage in areas that we go through on a yearly basis in some cases to a major potentially catastrophic event for our area,” said Steve Bekanich, EMA coordinator. Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday the river level was approximately 19 feet, according to the National Weather Service. Between 1 and 2 inches of rain was possible overnight into this morning, according to the weather service. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain was forecast for today with the showers and the chance of thunderstorms. Bekanich, Brozena and others planned to meet throughout the night and into the morning to gather and evaluate the updated information that could lead to an evacuation order of people who live along flood-protected areas. “At this point in time we do not have enough information to make an informed decision so we’re not going to make it,” said Brozena. County commissioners Steve Urban and Tom Cooney attended the briefing. They said they’ll meet at 6 a.m. today at the EMA building with commissioner Maryanne Petrilla to decide their course of action. “We’re going to be making the decision tonight after looking at the rainfall and weather forecasts whether we order an evacuation of the protected area,” said Urban. Throughout protected river front communities officials watched and waited. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton said the city was following its emergency plan and using what it learned during the six previous floods that have occurred during his nearly eight years in office. He said if the decision is made to evacuate certain sections of the city, he hopes residents and business owners take the decree seriously. “I can’t be more serious about this,” Leighton told those gathered at a briefing late Wednesday night at City Hall. “If we ask you to leave, leave.” While others in unprotected areas heeded the call to evacuate people by midnight. “We’re going door-to-door,” said Rob Sax, a Plains Township commissioner. The Plainsville area of the township takes on water when the river reaches its natural flood stage of 22 feet. It was one of the first areas scheduled to evacuate along with: sections of Mocanaqua in Conyngham Township; Shickshinny; sections of Beach Haven in Salem Township; West Nanticoke and Avondale Hill in Plymouth Township; River Road by the Eighth Street Bridge in Jen-

WINDHAM, N.Y. — Northeastern U.S. residents still weary from the flooding wrought by Tropical Storm Irene braced Wednesday for the leftovers of Tropical Storm Lee, which brought welcome moisture to farmers in parched parts of the South on its slog northward. New York positioned rescue workers, swift-water boats and helicopterswithhoiststorespond quickly in the event of flash flooding. Teams stood by in Vermont, which bore the brunt of Irene’s remnants last week, and hundreds of Pennsylvania residents were told to flee a rising creek. “Everybody’s on alert,” said

Dennis Michalski, spokesman for the New York Emergency Management Office. “The good thing is, the counties are on alert, as they were for Irene, and people are more conscious.” Lee formed just off the Louisiana coast late last week and gained strength as it lingered in the Gulf of Mexico for a couple of days. It dumped more than a foot of rain in New Orleans, testing the city’s pump system for the first time in years, and trudged across Mississippi and Alabama. Heavy rain fell Wednesday morning on the already-battered town of Prattsville, on the northern edge of New York’s Catskill Mountains, where residents were ready to evacuate as the Schoharie Creek escaped its banks and smaller streams showed significant flooding. Flooding also led to voluntary evacuations in the Catskills town of Shandaken, and some schools

QUOTE OF THE DAY “Your pay-phone strategy does not work in a smartphone world.” Mitt Romney The former Massachusetts governor who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination lobbed criticism earlier this week at President Obama for what Romney characterized as outdated ideas on reviving the economy. Romney unveiled a 59-point agenda to spur job growth. His “Believe in America” plan calls for tax cuts and rollbacks in environmental, health and banking rules.

OTHER OPINION: U.S. VEHICLES

Fuel efficiency paying dividends

A

MERICANS ARE driving more fuel-efficient vehicles and reducing the demand for gasoline, new figures show. It’s an encouraging development at a time when pump prices remain stubbornly high. Gasoline consumption fell by 2 percent from January to July of 2011 compared with the same months in 2010, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Fuel efficiency accounted for half of the decline, while higher gas prices and consumers cutting back because of the uncertain economy caused the other half. Americans still pay a lot for gasoline – an average of $3.63 a gallon for unleaded as of last week – but they are saving money through efficiency measures and smarter consumer habits. This positive development has been too long in coming. A couple of positive changes

have cut down on the number of gas-guzzlers cruising the highways. • Prodded by environmental groups, President Barack Obama won significantly stricter mileage requirements for new vehicles. The prior average of around 27 miles a gallon should reach 35.5 by 2016 and 54.5 by 2025. • General Motors and Chrysler took federal bailout funds and now embrace the standards pushed by Washington. Ford has forged ahead with its own fleet of fuel-efficient cars. Motorists still are paying a lot at the pump because demand for oil has risen in China and other developing nations, while U.S. refineries are keeping higher profits, too. Given all that, it’s even better news that America’s vehicle fleet is getting much more efficient. The Kansas City Star

Obama could gain by admitting mistake, unleashing startups MR. PRESIDENT, you know you’re in a real fix and so is the economy. You know too well how partisanship has poisoned the atmosphere in Washington (and in the rest of the country). That combined with the latest gross domestic product statistics helps explain why consumers and businesses won’t spend. They lack confidence in the future. Only actions, not speeches, will change their minds. Here are two broad ideas that just might have a chance of getting something done, even with the election looming. First, admit you made a mistake in not immediately and enthusiastically embracing the $4 trillion deficit reduction package recommended by the bipartisan majority of your own commission last December. By not doing so, you had no anchor in your subsequent negotiations with Congress. Moreover, you had four Republican commission members who could have been great emissaries to the other Republicans in Congress during those talks. There is still time to change course, however, which according to press reports, you have implicitly acknowledged by urging the congressional panel created by the debt ceiling bill passed in August to go well beyond its remit of a $1.5 trillion target. Why not simply urge them to take your commission’s deal, plus a short-run extension of the payroll tax

MAIL BAG

COMMENTARY ROBERT LITAN cut as an insurance policy against further short-run backsliding in employment gains? Don’t worry about being attacked for admitting a past error. Americans like occasional humbleness in their presidents. President Kennedy was never more popular than after he admitted his mistake in ordering the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961. Second, make the reinvigoration of America’s startup engine the centerpiece of your jobs message to the nation tonight. Abundant research, which your administration’s Economic Report to the President cited this year, has documented that until the recession young firms were responsible for all net new jobs created since 1980. But new research also underscores that the numbers of jobs created by these firms have been falling. You began to recognize this problem by announcing the creation of the Startup America campaign earlier this year, which will rely heavily on volunteer mentors and privatesector-led initiatives to help young companies. In addition, your administration just issued some administrative tweaks under current immigration laws to let in some more immigrant entrepreneurs (who, by definition, can only create jobs, not take them from

anyone). Given the gravity of the current economic climate, however, we need comprehensive legislation – a Startup Act – to both facilitate the formation and growth of new companies, and to move roadblocks out of the way. We should have no statutory caps on immigrants who start businesses here and employ Americans. You should again urge Congress to make permanent capital gains tax relief for investors in new companies if they hold those investments for at least five years. You might also suggest that Congress permit new corporations to pay no or low taxes in their first few years to give them cash flow to grow and thus hire more workers. Finally, now is the time to dramatically overhaul our excessively complex and costly regulatory system, which impedes job growth by new and existing firms alike. Ask Congress to sunset all rules after 10 years, while requiring all new rules to pass a benefit-cost test. Public opinion surveys consistently show that Americans love entrepreneurs. If you challenge Congress to help them, you’ll be pushing on an open door. Robert Litan is vice president for research and policy at the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City and a former associate director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Clinton administration. He wrote this for the Kansas City Star.

ith the news that al-Qaida’s No. 2 has gone the way of his old boss, it seems as if al-Qaida’s days as a potent force might be numbered. But amazingly, the Obama administration and Congress are considering indiscriminate cuts to the very military capabilities – such as fighter jets and unmanned drone aircraft – that enable the United States several options to pursue terrorists without being forced to deploy ground troops. In Libya, for example, NATO effectively neutralized Moammar Gadhafi forces with fighter jet and missile strikes. And when it came to finding and killing Osama bin Laden, the United States used unmanned drones to gather intelligence and attack helicopters to drop a Navy SEAL team into bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, leading to the terrorist leader’s death without the large deployment of ground forces. If Congress files down the American edge in military aerospace capabilities with penny-wise and pound-foolish budget cuts, American civilian and military leaders might no longer have the same wide array of options. The best policy is to maintain American

dominance in the skies. Retired Rear Adm. James J. Carey Chairman, Flag and General Officers’ Network Alexandria, Va.

Students should have been grateful for Hershey jobs

L

et me get this right: A bunch of kids come to the United States on a “cultural exchange” program from countries such as China, Nigeria, Russia and Turkey. As part of the program, they work at the Hershey chocolate warehouse in Pennsylvania being paid $7.85 to $8.30 an hour. After paying expenses, they have little money left and what do they decide to do? Protest.

DOONESBURY

I guess they didn’t understand the details of the program when they signed up. I wonder what would have happened had they decided to protest once they returned home. Maybe the lesson they should have learned while working in Hershey was the story of Mr. Milton Hershey – a man who had a dream and through hard work created a product that the masses enjoyed and for which they were willing to pay money, enabling him to grow his business to the point where a bunch of ingrates from other countries can come experience America, then get a forum from some union officials to criticize the company that provided the opportunity. Here’s an idea. Go home. Take your personal assets, put them at risk and bring your dream product to market. Pay your workers whatever you deem as fair. Let the unions in to organize against you. Offer a program in which kids from other countries can work at your facility, then protest against you as greedy and unfair – all along realizing some local kids on summer vacation could have had those positions, and would have been thankful for the opportunity. But most important: Just go home! Chuck Hoyt Dallas

Evacuate or not? Area emotions run the gamut my stuff?” For some residents, the Williams, her daughter, Danika, process is routine; for others, 10, and Williams’ boyfriend, Mark it can be a tense time. Gahimer, 51, will be staying with By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

In the small section of Plainsville in Plains Township, Robin Williams, her daughters and boyfriend moved their first-floor furniture upstairs and quickly packed vehicles with belongings Thursday evening. Township officials in a firetruck drove through announcing that every resident had to evacuate by midnight. The Susquehanna River was expected to crest above flood stage. “Frustrated. Nervous. Upset. Anxious. You name it and I’m feeling it, not knowing what you’re coming back home to. Do you have a home? What’s going to be left?” Williams said. It’s not the first time that Williams, 51, had to evacuate from her Mitchell Street rental for flooding, and she’s tired of it. “I don’t see us coming back here,” Williams said. “They’re saying we’re supposed to get about 6 feet (of water) on the first floor. What’s worse right now is if it hits ashardasthey’resaying,amIgoing to be able to get upstairs to get my stuff out of here? Am I going to lose

her older daughter, Bobbi-Jo Fleig, at her home in Bear Creek. “Nexttimeyou’llbedownhereis probably on the boat,” Fleig told her mother. Two blocks away, Tom Skursky, 52, of West Wyoming, and his son, Brian, 24, were helping Skursky’s 17-year-old nephew, John Skursky, pack lawn machines into a pickup truck bed as they waited for John’s mother, Janice Carswell, to get home from work. Tom Skursky said he remembered helping neighbors in the flood of1972, but this was his nephew’s first evacuation. John said he wasn’t worried. “I have no school,” he said with a smile, noting he received a text alert that Coughlin High School, as well as all Wilkes-Barre Area schools, would be closed today. He’s not worried about his home either. “I got all my stuff out – my hockey stuff, my golf stuff, my snowboard and pictures,” he said. Around the corner on Robert Street,ShariHarris,30,wasgathering toys and other things she planned to take for her 2-year-old son, Hayden, when her husband, Thomas, arrived home and they could leave for a friend’s house in Lackawanna County.

giving because we have some late fall crops that we plant.” Norman Darling, who also has about 30 acres of crops near Golomb’s in Plains Township along the Susquehanna River, was giving up on recouping the 500 bagsworth of potatoes and 500 bushels of peppers. “The workers are sinking up to their ankles right now,” he said. “We have a bunch of stuff out there yet, but after tomorrow it will be gone. It’s just one of those things you have to deal with – Mother Nature.” Much of Luzerne County snapped into flood mode because of flash flooding and a prediction that the Susquehanna River will reach 38.5 feet in the WilkesBarre area by early Friday morning. Levees protect most of the Wyoming Valley up to a river level of 41 feet, but residents of low-lying areas not protected by the levee were ordered to evacuate by Luzerne County commissioners. Plymouth Township Supervisor Gale Conrad remained outwardly calm but said she was terrified of what may hit her municipality, which is not protected by the levee. “I don’t even want to think of what 38 feet of water would do to Plymouth Township,” Conrad said. “It would mean all of the structures hit in 1972 would have about 2.5 feet less water inside than they did in 1972. That’s catastrophic.” Roughly 80 structures in the township were flooded in September 2004, when the river reached 34.96 feet, she said. Several sections of state Route 11 will be “totally flooded” at 38.5 feet, she said. “It would have a grave effect on traveling through the township,” she said. The township also experienced river flooding in 2005 and 2006 and flash flooding in July. “Pretty much all the residents – unless they just moved into town – are clearly aware of what happens,” she said. “Unfortunately, we’ve had so much practice, we’ve become good at it.” Shickshinny evacuation Shickshinny Mayor Beverly Moore said about 200 residents were being evacuated Wednesday night, and she estimated that 70 percent of the structures in the borough will be flooded if the river reaches 38 feet. Many residents evacuated Wednesday were not impacted by flooding in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and borough officials had to drive home the message that flooding would be more far reaching this time, Moore said. Route 11 will be impassable. “We’re going to take a hard stand that nobody can linger,” Moore said, stressing residents should take their medication with them. A high-rise building for the elderly and disabled was on the evacuation list, and some residents of the building held out in past floods, she said. “I know that people have stayed there before and everything was fine, but this time I’m not feeling the same thing,” Moore said. She focused on notifying residents, putting her own disappointment and fears aside. Her home along the river is elevated for flooding, but the foundation has never been tested at 38 feet. She already knows the arbor her husband built in the backyard won’t survive.

Tom Skursky, John Skursky and Jason Weidman load up property to move to higher ground on Wednesday in anticipation of flooding.

“I’ve been here seven weeks. I didn’t expect to get flooded within seven weeks of being here,” said Williams, who moved there from Moosic. “It’s not a big deal,” Donna Stephens, Williams’ landlord, said. “To you it may not be a big deal,” Harris retorted. “It’s not a big deal,” Stephens insisted. “We’re going to have a bonfire, we’re getting a case of beer and we’ve got grills to get going and everything else. We’ve got boats to take us in and out. My husband’s got his boat over there, it’s ready to go. And if it gets higher than that, we’ve got a guy coming down with abig,humungousboat.We’vegotit covered,” Stephens, 52, said.

In West Pittston, Joseph Schillaci, 57, a resident of Susquehanna Avenue for 20 years, didn’t plan on being out of his home by midnight either. “I’ve evacuated in the past when the water was (up to the second of five steps leading to his porch). That’s time for me to go, and I don’t think it’s going to be there at midnight. … I’ll keep a watch on it, though. I won’t put myself in jeopardy,” he said. If he and his wife, Maria, and daughter Rosa find it necessary to stay with relatives, Schillaci said he’s taking “just things that can’t be replaced. We’ve been through the drill before. It’s like having a wife who’s eight months pregnant.

Hayden Harris, 2, sits in the back of his family’s van while his mother packs in Plainsville during the evacuation Wednesday.

We’ve done the drill.” Schillaci discussed with longtime friend Matt Sciabacucchi, 33, of Pittston Township, a game plan for barricading the doors and windows with rubber-backed carpet and sheets of linoleum to keep the mud out. “This is what bothers me more than the storm,” Schillaci said, pointing to the street. “The sightseers … when they come watch the disaster.” Sciabacucchi said the valley “could probably use a flood” because of the federal aid that would likely come this way. “The carpet guy gets work, the roofer gets work, the landscaper gets work. This is why people have

insurance. I’m an insurance man and reasons like this are why peopleneedinsurance.You’recompensated for your loss and then everyone in the community makes out,” he said. Rose Marie Mesaris said her daughter,CharleneMaroni,moved in the home next door to Schillaci because “she fell in love with it.” Maroni, her husband, John, and theirdog,Asia,willstaywithMesaris until it’s safe to move back to their home, Mesaris said. “We’re hoping that they’re going to be wrong about the forecast, but I doubt it. She loves the house, it was something that she really wanted. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad,” Mesaris said.

SUSQUEHANNA CRESTS If the Susquehanna River in Wilkes-Barre reaches a projected crest of 38.5 feet early Friday morning, it will be the second highest level since meteorological records began being kept in 1865, according to the Middle Atlantic River Forecast Center in State College. The top 10 highest crests on record: • 40.91 feet on June 24, 1972, caused by Tropical Storm Agnes. • 35.06 feet on Sept. 27, 1975, caused by Tropical Storm Eloise. • 34.96 feet on Sept. 19, 2004, caused by Tropical Storm Ivan. • 34.45 feet on Jan. 20, 1996, caused by massive snowmelt, unseasonably high temperatures and heavy rain. • 34.14 feet on June 28, 2006, caused by 4 to 6 inches of rain. • 33.10 feet on March 18, 1865, caused by snowmelt and heavy rain. • 33.07 feet on March 20, 1936, caused by snowmelt and heavy rain. • 32.01 feet on May 29, 1946, caused by heavy rain. • 31.53 feet on April 1, 1940, caused by 3 inches of rain. • 31.4 feet on March 2, 1902, caused by snowmelt and heavy rain.

“I only sat under it once,” she said. West Pittston Mayor Tony Denisco said 40 to 50 houses and buildings will be impacted in the borough if the river reaches 38 feet. “At 30 to 32 feet, the river floods Susquehanna Avenue,” Denisco said. “At 38 (feet), we have quite a bit of homes that will get basement flooding. It won’t reach the first level of the houses.” Denisco said the borough’s police and fire departments were going door-todoor advising residents in low-lying areas near the river of the evacuation. “Most have gone through this before, they’ll move their belongings up higher in their houses,” Denisco said. Plains Township Emergency Management Coordinator Charlie Krommes said sections of River Street shut down when the Susquehanna reaches 31 feet. Residents of the Plainsville section were ordered to evacuate. Jenkins Township Manager Robert Jones said structures in the Port Blanchard section of the township near the Eighth Street Bridge will likely be flooded. Rockslide on Route 92 Some roads in Exeter Township had already started flooding Wednesday, including a section of Route 92 that had a rockslide, said township Supervisor James Dowse. At a river level of 38 feet, houses in the Riverview Village mobile home park and on Coolidge, Harding, Wilson and Taft streets will be flooded, Dowse said. This area was part of the county’s mandatory evacuation. Mike Moughan, owner of the Appletree House Restaurant in Exeter Township, was moving everything that’s not affixed to the second floor of his building – chairs, tables and appliances. “We flood at 31 feet, and this is our third major flood in six years,” Moughan said. The last flood in 2006 closed the business for 10 weeks. “We’re going to be closed for awhile after this. I’m disgusted,” he said. Admission cut in half In the midst of the flood preparations, the Luzerne County Fair opened its first of five days late Wednesday afternoon.

CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER

The wall along Mill Creek behind 1388 N. Washington St. in Wilkes-Barre started to pull away from the bank early Wednesday morning.

Admission was cut in half from $8 to $4 because the amusement rides were not operating in the rain. “It’s heartbreaking to work all year,” said Judy Kmetz, chair of the fair, as she scurried about the trailer that serves as the fair office. Just once before the fair had to cancel a day a few years ago, she said. “It was the first time in the history of the Luzerne County Fair.” Dale Estep, fair secretary, said the grounds in Lehman Township that were clean and green were rutted and muddy. “We take a lot of pride in our grounds,” he said. Like Kmetz, he sympathized with people passing on opening day. “I completely understand if people don’t come out on the first day,” he said. “But we do hope they come out on the second and third days.” Flash flooding of creeks and streams also created problems Wednesday. Huntsville Creek overflowed its banks in Jackson Township, impacting several houses on Hillside Road. The Hanover Township Fire Department’s water rescue team transported two families to dry ground after the Nescopeck Creek flooded, creating a lake in the area of Sleepy Hollow Road. Orlando and her husband, Lou, thought they would be safe because they built their home at an elevated 12 feet after the last one was destroyed by 2006 creek flooding. “In 2006 we lost everything we owned,” Orlando said as she handed off the family dog to one of her three sons. Fifteen-year-old Carmen Tucci and his brother and father were also rescued by boat Wednesday afternoon, though the experience didn’t faze him. He said he was napping when the rescue workers arrived because his family spent hours moving furniture and other belongings to an upper floor. “I wasn’t really scared. Water’s water.” Times Leader staff writer Jerry Lynott contributed to this report.

Hockey’s ‘darkest day’

The first big test for PSU’s new leaders comes Saturday against the Crimson Tide. By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

The news came later even than the players were expecting, but the effect was still the same. Penn State gathered for a squad meeting on Friday less than 24 hours before the Nittany Lions’ opener against Indiana State. It was there that Joe Paterno announced to the team that four players – Drew Astorino, Quinn Barham, Derek Moye and Devon Still – would serve as captains for the season. “It was shocking – I was surprised that my teammates elected me,” Barham said. “But it let me know I was UP NEXT doing someAlabama thing right over at Penn State the years.” WHEN: 3:30 A vote had p.m., Saturday been held at the WHERE: Beabeginning of ver Stadium, last week. As State College TV: ABC, the old joke WNEP-16 goes, however, the players vote on the captains, but Paterno and his coaching staff are the ones counting the votes. Now Paterno and the rest of the Lions will be counting on the newly elected leadership to help prepare the team for Saturday’s game against No. 2 Alabama. Lions players talked this week about the youth and inexperience of last year’s squad that was easily dispatched by the Crimson Tide 24-3 last September. “Some guys were a little bit overwhelmed going down to Tuscaloosa last year,” Moye said. “They were the defending champs, so a lot of people were taken aback with everything down there. But we wont have a problem with that this year.” The four captains lead a group of 12 seniors who started in the opener and 17 total who are expected to play significant roles on the 2011 roster. Penn State had nine seniors in See CAPTAINS, Page 6B

Rescuers survey the crash site of a Russian Yak-42 jet near the city of Yaroslavl, on the Volga River about 150 miles northeast of Moscow on Wednesday. The plane, carrying a top ice hockey team, crashed while taking off, killing 43 of 45 people aboard.

Catastrophe kills 43, majority of KHL team By LYNN BERRY The Associated Press

TUNOSHNA, Russia — A private jet carrying a Russian professional hockey team to its first game of the season crashed shortly after takeoff Wednesday, killing 43 people — including European and former NHL players — in one of the worst aviation disasters in sports history. Two people survived the accident. The crash also was the latest tragedy to befall the sport of hockey — following the sudden, offseason deaths of three of the NHL’s tough-guy enforcers that has shocked fans.

The chartered Yak-42 jet was carrying the team — Lokomotiv Yaroslavl — to Minsk, the capital of Belarus, where it was to play Thursday in its opening game of the Kontinental Hockey League season. Of the 45 people on board, 36 were players, coaches and team officials; eight were crew. The plane apparently struggled to gain altitude and then hit a signal tower before breaking apart along the Volga River near Yaroslavl,150 miles (240 kilometers) northeast of Moscow. One of the blue-and-white plane’s charred engines poked through the surface of the shallow water. “This is the darkest day in the history of

our sport,” said Rene Fasel, president of the International Ice Hockey Federation. “This is not only a Russian tragedy — the Lokomotiv roster included players and coaches from 10 nations.” One player — identified as Russian Alexander Galimov — and one unidentified crew member were hospitalized in “very grave” condition, said Alexander Degyatryov, chief doctor at Yaroslavl’s Solovyov Hospital. Among the dead were Lokomotiv coach and NHL veteran Brad McCrimmon, a CanSee CRASH, Page 6B

THE KID WASN’T exactly devastated about facing a possible demotion. And the veteran guy brought in to start in place of him certainly wasn’t smirking about it. As long as this last-minute shuffle leaves the Philadelphia Eagles smiling after Sunday’s season opener, they insist they’ll both be happy. The Eagles weren’t especially thrilled with the way their offensive line leaked like a worn storm drain through the preseason, threatening to drench quarterback Michael Vick in a sea of sacks while dunking Philadelphia’s Super Bowl dreams. With the so-called “Dream Team” suddenly looking more like a nightmare, the Eagles played their own version of a Super Bowl shuffle. They brought in fourth-year vet Kyle DeVan, a past Super Bowl blocker with the Indianapolis Colts, and prepared to insert him in place of first-round draft choice Danny Watkins at right guard. “Whatever five goes out there on Sunday, consistency in their approach is what it’s all about,” DeVan said. Inconsistency up front is never a good thing for an offense. But neither is making major lineup changes three days before the season begins. It takes time to build camaraderie in the trenches, and the Eagles don’t have much of it. Time or camaraderie. “Decisions have been made to play some guys, and that’s the way it’s going to be,” Vick said. “We’re all excited. We don’t dwell on things that may go wrong.” Watkins seemed like the wrong man for the job from the start of the preseason. “If I weren’t to put him in,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said, concealing his starting lineup for this week, “sometimes it’s good to take a step back so you can take a big step forward.” To this point, Watkins appeared to be going backward. Growing pains A bullish blocker with a ton of potential, the former Canadian firefighter was anointed Philadelphia’s new starting right guard the moment the Eagles picked him in April’s NFL Draft. But he let his guard down, struggling to perform at a capable NFL level while being overmatched in Philadelphia’s exhibition games. When the games begin for real for the Eagles, starting at 1 p.m. Sunday in St. Louis, their biggest draft pick will likely be watching from the sideline. “That’s a coaching decision,” Watkins said. “I don’t think I’m a big shot.” The Eagles hope DeVan will give them a big shot in the arm. He played under new Eagles offensive line coach Howard Mudd when both were helping the Colts reach the Super Bowl in the 2009 season.

Season may start earlier YOU MIGHT NEED to get ready for some football a week earlier next year. The PIAA’s desire to slash a week off the season appears headed for reality next year. That means a nine-game regular season … maybe. The PIAA may also give schools an option of playing 10 games provided the extra game replaces the second scrimmage. So that means the Wyoming Valley Conference could start Aug. 24 of next year, not Aug. 31. Of course, that would mean only one week of double-session practices. But after talking to a few former and current coaches informally over the last few years, there is an underlying feeling that two-aday practices aren’t as necessary as they were decades ago. Many kids are involved in football year-round, be it in 7-on-7 non-contact scrimmages or voluntary practices. They are in better shape and are now better prepared. As for losing a second scrimmage, it might hurt programs with new coaches. But many second scrimmages are like the fourth NFL preseason game – get the starters a little work and get them out so no one gets hurt before the regular season. One issue that would need to be addressed with an earlier start is the heat. Anyone who attended the Northwest at Holy Redeemer game last Saturday afternoon can attest to just how hot it was. Players on both teams suffered the effects of the 80-plus degree temperatures. By contrast, later that night Holy Cross and Meyers played at the same stadium and the weather was bearable. A solution, if an early start happens, would be no Saturday afternoon games on the opening week. And if that can’t be prevented, then start those games at 4 or 5 p.m. instead of 1 p.m. And have misting fans available for both teams. Abington Heights, which plays all of its home games on Saturday afternoon, is the only school I can recall having misting fans. Even an extend-

NOTEBOOK

Jordan Houseman WR/KR/DB – Pittston Area Houseman became the first Patriot since Tim Cotter in 2001, according to Times Leader records, to return a punt for a touchdown in a regular-season game. Houseman brought the punt back 56 yards for a score in the first quarter, sparking a 45-6 victory over Tunkhannock. He then finished off the scoring in the fourth quarter with another punt return touchdown, this one 46 yards. In between, the junior returned an interception 13 yards for a touchdown. Given consideration Darrell Crawford, QB/KR/DB, GAR Roger Legg, RB/DB, Crestwood Devin Miller, RB, Williamsport

ed halftime would help. The football season will once again end a week before Christmas with the state championship games. Obviously the season is too long, but a nine-game regular season is too short. And a solution for a 10th game seems easy enough if planned properly. READY TO ROLL A few weeks back there were rumors Dallas’ first home game this Saturday would have to be moved to neighboring Lake-Lehman because of the final touches being put on the new high school and new parking area. Dallas Superintendent Frank Galicki said Saturday that the facilities will be ready in time for the 1 p.m. game against Scranton Prep. HITTING 100 Holy Redeemer’s David Gawlas rushed for 106 yards playing running back and quarterback Saturday against Northwest. It was the first time in 13 games a Royal rushed for at least 100 yards. The last time that occurred with in the third week of the 2009 season when quarterback Anh Le had 114 yards against Northwest. OFF AND RUNNING Pittston Area’s ground game got off to a good start in the opener against Tunkhannock. The Patriots rushed for three touchdowns in the 45-6 victory. They had six rushing TDs in all of 2010. Pittston Area finished with 226 yards rushing against the Tigers. At the midway point of last season, the team had totaled 209 yards on the ground through five games. STEPPING UP Crestwood and Northwest both had to rely on their benches to pull off victories. At one point in Crestwood’s 19-6 win over Berwick, the Comets had freshman Frank Aigeldinger at middle linebacker and sophomores Brandon Ruckle and Teddy Grozio at defensive ends. All three

drew praise from coach Greg Myers. Northwest inserted freshman Logan Womelsdorf at quarterback after starter Gunner Majer left the 38-24 victory over Holy Redeemer in the second quarter due to dehydration. Freshman running back Austin Mazonkey also ran well in relief of starter Tony Politz. OUT OF STATE Delaware Valley, which will be battling WVC teams for two automatic berths in the District 2/4-11 Class 4A playoffs, posted a 24-14 win in Florida last Friday against Island Coast High School. DelVal will still get state points for the victory against the Florida school. The male enrollment figure for an out-ofstate opponent is plugged into the PIAA classification parameters to determine where that school would be classified if it were in Pennsylvania. Island Coast is a huge school and therefore is considered Class 4A for state points purposes. So DelVal received 100 state points and will get 10 bonus points for each Island Coast victory. Island Coast finished 10-0 during the regular season in 2010.

Phillies’ sweep buries Braves The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Pinchhitter Ross Gload hit an RBI single with one out in the bottom of the ninth and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep and extend their lead to 101⁄2 games in the NL East. The major league-leading Phillies (91-48) reduced their magic number to 12 for clinching their fifth straight division title. They are 43 games above .500 for the first time in franchise history. Second-place Atlanta still should reach the postseason barring a late collapse. The Braves entered 71⁄2 games ahead of St. Louis and San Francisco in the wild-card race. Cardinals 2, Brewers 0

U.S. OPEN

CRASH

A start-and-stop day at Flushing Meadows By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

NEW YORK — Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick and Andy Murray got in about 15 minutes of tennis Wednesday — barely enough to work up a sweat, but more than enough to get into a snit. Rain washed out the matches for the second straight day at the U.S. Open, creating a logjam in the schedule and a bigger mess in the locker room, where the big-name players questioned the wisdom of putting them out on courts that were still damp thanks to a fine mist that was falling in the morning. Shortly after they started, play was called, then late in the afternoon, the men were sent home. Much later, and right after Serena Williams warmed up for her match against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, the U.S. Tennis Association finally scrubbed the women’s matches, too, calling everyone back for an 11 a.m. start Thursday, when the weather forecast is every bit as dodgy — an 80 percent chance of rain. “Right now, it’s our intention to finish the tournament on

early. Coolers will be stocked and grills will be sizzling as a presidential speech goes largely ignored. As Kid Rock warms up for a pregame concert, there will be no doubt that a bigger-thanbig game is hitting the NFL’s smallest market. Rodgers and Brees are the last two Super Bowl MVPs, leading the last two Super Bowl winners into Thursday night’s opener. For the league, it’s a chance to finally put away any lingering resentment from an offseason filled with ugly and tense — and ultimately successful — labor negotiations. For the Saints and Packers, it’s a chance to send an early message that they intend to contend again. Greg Jennings said it feels kind of like a “mini Super Bowl,” but Rodgers wasn’t quite willing

surgery while Kerry Collins starts in his place. “It’s going to be a little different without Peyton,” coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s one of a kind. When you look across our league, most teams have had quarterbacks that have missed time. Ours has just been highly unusual.” The streak is the second longest in history among NFL quarterbacks behind only Brett Favre, whose 297-game run – 321 including the postseason – ended last season just before he called it a career. Colts left tackle Anthony Cas-

time,” said tournament director Jim Curley, while acknowledging all the things working against that possibility. If the weather cooperates, this will be a Grand Slam the likes of which very few of these players have seen. To win, a man on the bottom half of the draw — Nadal, Roddick or Murray, for example — would need to win four matches in four days. The men on the top of the draw — Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic among them — had their quarterfinal matches postponed and are in for a long haul, as well. But well before Nadal and Company pondered the weekend, they expressed their concerns about being put in harm’s way. When play was halted, they marched straight into the tournament referee’s office to discuss the situation. “If you know you’re going to go on court only for 10 minutes, you don’t have to lie to the fans at that point, and you don’t have to lie to the players, too,” said Nadal, the defending champion, who trailed unseeded Gilles Muller 3-0 when play was stop-

ped. “The players knew when we (went) on court that it was still raining, so it was a very strange decision, and we were upset about that.” Curley, however, said player

safety is the USTA’s top concern and that only one player — Roddick — made any mention to a chair umpire of the slick conditions when he walked on the court.

to go that far. “It’s a similar feel to a big game, a playoff game,” Rodgers said. “I don’t want to say the Super Bowl. There’s a big atmosphere outside the stadium. But the only thing that matters is taking care of business on the field.” Brees knows no big-picture objectives will be won or lost in the first week of the season. “I’m sure we’re going to get questions about future playoff implications and all that stuff about this game,” Brees said. “We see ourselves as a great team and as a contender. They see themselves as a great team and as a contender. The fact of the matter is it’s one game and it just happens to be the first game of the season on a Thursday night on national television. But you just try to cut through all that and understand it’s just a game, and it’s just one game.” After last year’s stunning playoff loss to Seattle prevented New Orleans from repeating, Brees

knows firsthand about the scrutiny that comes after winning the Super Bowl. “You lose a game or something like that, it’s like people are just waiting for something bad to happen to your team so they can say, ‘I told you so,’ ” Brees said. “There’s pressure with that, and obviously the expectation level after winning the Super Bowl, the thought being that, ‘Hey, there’s no reason why we can’t go do it again.’ You just have to be careful that there’s not a sense of entitlement. It almost becomes even harder the next year because everybody’s gunning for you.” What Brees doesn’t know is how the lockout will affect the Packers — or any team, for that matter. The Saints got together for informal, team-wide workouts during the lockout, organized by Brees. The Packers didn’t, and Rodgers and the Packers have publicly dismissed it as not being worthwhile.

“We tried to simulate as best we could a normal offseason, albeit it wasn’t at our team facility and we had to make other arrangements on our own and do everything on our own,” Brees said. “The hope was that that would be able to put us into a situation where we felt like we still had an offseason. ... It would feel like we were just going to training camp, just like we were every year, but we were a little bit ahead of the game and maybe would give us an edge.” Rodgers thinks the Packers can be perennial contenders. “If you think about ’teams of the decades,’ those teams won multiple Super Bowls,” Rodgers said. “The Steelers of the ’70s, Niners of the ’80s, Cowboys in the ’90s, Patriots in the 2000s were multiple Super Bowl victors. We want to want to re-establish that tradition of going deep in the playoffs every year and making runs at Super Bowls.”

tonzo was 10 years old when Manning’s streak began. Veteran center Jeff Saturday has never snapped the ball to another quarterback to start a game during his pro career. In fact, no player on Indy’s roster has participated in a regular-season or playoff game for the Colts without No. 18 at the controls. The Colts had hoped the 35year-old Manning would recover while developing a backup plan. Collins, who was brought out of retirement just two weeks ago to run the Colts’ pass-heavy offense, has been preparing as though he would start. “I expect to run the offense, bottom line,” Collins said. “Make plays when they’re there, be smart with the ball, make good reads, good decisions, get

us into the right plays when the situation calls for it. I’m going into this week thinking I’m going to run the offense as best I can.” “To say I am disappointed in not being able to play is an understatement,” Manning said in a release from the team. “The best part about football is being out there on the field playing with my teammates. It will be tough not to be out there playing for the organization and our fans. I simply am not healthy enough to play, and I am doing everything I can to get my health back. The team will do fine without me, and I know for sure that I will miss them much more than they miss me.” Manning had neck surgery to repair a nerve May 23, but the recovery has taken much longer

than the expected 6-8 weeks that would have put him back on the field for the start of training camp. Instead, he started camp on the physically unable to perform list and wasn’t activated until last Monday. He did limited work at practice last week, which led to complaints about back pain. The team issued a statement saying that team doctors had re-evaluated Manning and instructed him to stop practicing while he undergoes more tests. No additional surgery has been scheduled. Caldwell said the bad news only became clear Wednesday. “We always knew it was a chance,” he said. “That’s what doubtful means. You always have to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.”

CAPTAINS

PSU closing multiple grass parking lots

Continued from Page 1B

Heavy rainfall throughout the week has forced Penn State to close several grass parking areas in advance of Saturday’s game against Alabama. The affected lots around Beaver Stadium are Yellow lots 9, 12 and the Family-Friendly Lot, as well as the Brown Lot, all of which are located west of Beaver Stadium off of Park Avenue. Free shuttles to and from the stadium will be provided for displaced fans. • Brown Lot permits will be directed to park in the Orange Lot off of Park Avenue and should approach the stadium from the east. • Yellow Lot 12 permits also should approach from the east and will be directed to available Yellow Lot parking. • Family-Friendly Lot permits should approach from the west and will be directed to the paved area in front of the Housing and Food

the starting lineup a year ago against Alabama. But only three of them were on defense and the starting quarterback was an 18year-old Rob Bolden playing in his first college road game. The Lions had two captains for that season – receiver Brett Brackett and defensive tackle Ollie Ogbu – and few logical choices to pick from to lead the team. It was the opposite problem this year, as any number of returning senior starters were available to pick from. That made the selections all the more meaningful for the new captains. “It was the biggest honor I’ve received thus far,” Still said. “Not ever had I thought I’d be able to be a Penn State captain. But now I’m in this position to lead the team and go after a national championship. I’m just working as hard as I can to get this team together.” Leadership – or lack thereof –

The Times Leader staff

was a significant issue for the Lions last season. That perhaps played a role in the drawn-out process of selecting and announcing captains this year. Though Ogbu and Brackett by all accounts were solid captains, they had little support. A lack of

Services Building. • Permits for ADA grass parking in Lot 9 should approach from the west to be redirected to the East Parking Deck on Bigler Road, which will be open only to those with ADA parking permits. • Permits for reserved spaces on paved lots will not be affected. Fans are discouraged from bringing RVs to the game. Those who have a reserved grass RV parking space (Green and Purple lots) will not be permitted to park RVs there and will be relocated to a suitable area. Yellow lot RV parking will not be permitted, though overnight RV parking in Yellow Lot 19 will be available in a limited capacity. All attending the game are strongly encouraged to check gopsusports.com or live.psu.edu for further parking updates.

vocal leaders beyond Brackett on offense helped Matt McGloin grab hold of the starting quarterback job in the second half of the season, as the West Scranton grad was able to deliver a muchneeded spark in the huddle. Having a more experienced

roster from top to bottom this season will provide a boost for the new captains. “I wouldn’t say there’ more pressure on us this year,” Moye said. “We have a lot of seniors now, I think it’ll be easier.”

adian; assistant coach Alexander Karpovtsev, one of the first Russians to have his name etched on the Stanley Cup as a member of the New York Rangers; and Pavol Demitra, who played for the St. Louis Blues and the Vancouver Canucks and was the Slovakian national team captain. Other standouts killed were Czech players Josef Vasicek, Karel Rachunek and Jan Marek, Swedish goalie Stefan Liv, Latvian defenseman Karlis Skrastins and defenseman Ruslan Salei of Belarus. Russian NHL star Alex Ovechkin reflected the anguish that resonated through the sport of hockey when he tweeted: “I’m in shock!!!!!R.I.P.” “Though it occurred thousands of miles away from our home arenas, this tragedy represents a catastrophic loss to the hockey world — including the NHL family, which lost so many fathers, sons, teammates and friends,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. The NHL already has been mourning three unexpected deaths of players in recent months, including a suicide and an accidental drug overdose. The cause of the crash was not immediately apparent, but Russian news agencies cited local officials as saying it may have been due to technical problems. The plane was built in 1993 and belonged to a small Moscow-based company, Yak Service. In recent years, Russia and the other former Soviet republics have had some of the world’s worst air traffic safety records. Experts blame the age of the aircraft, weak government controls, poor pilot training and a cost-cutting mentality.

The first was a letter sent Sept. 2 to SEC Commissioner Mike Slive that said the Big 12 “and its members” had agreed to waive the right for legal action against the SEC over the Aggies’ move. Loftin then shared with the AP a copy of a Sept. 6 email sent by Beebe to Slive that said the legal waivers from each school were actually far from being secure. “You have notified me that the SEC is willing to accept the application of Texas A&M to become a member of the SEC, provided that the Big 12 member institutions individually waive any legal actions against the SEC for its decision,” Beebe wrote. “I recognize that this issue has been raised due to Baylor University’s indication that its governing board has not waived the university’s rights,” Beebe added. “As you know, the attached letter waived the right of the Big 12 Conference Inc. to take legal action against the SEC. Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton, chair of the Big 12 Board of Directors, has told me that he informed Texas A&M President Bowen Loftin that such action by the Big 12 Conference Board of Directors was not binding on the individual institutions’ governing boards. “If you seek waivers by the individual institutions, you must receive them from those institutions directly. I regret any confusion on this issue.” The email was sent late Tues-

So DeVan is banking on that experience becoming an advantage for Philadelphia. “The offense with Peyton (Manning), Howard constructed that,” DeVan said. “These guys went through training camp with Howard, they’re learning his style. I’ve been under Howard’s style for two years. The questions I have with Howard, he’ll say, ‘This is like your old so-and-so play.’ ”

crews rushed to Tunoshna, a ramshackle village with small wooden houses and a blue-domed church on the banks of the Volga 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Yaroslavl. Resident Irina Prakhova was walking to the village pump for a bucket of water when she saw the plane going down and then heard a loud bang. “It was wobbling in flight, it was clear that something was wrong,” said Prakhova. “I saw them pulling bodies to the shore, some still in their seats with seatbelts on.” More than 2,000 mourning fans wearing jerseys and scarves and waving team flags gathered in the evening outside Lokomotiv’s arena in Yaroslavl to mourn. Most carried flowers. Riot police stood guard as fans sang to honor the dead athletes. Yaroslavl Gov. Sergei Vakhrukov promised the crowd that the Lokomotiv team would be rebuilt, prompting anger from some fans at a perceived lack of respect for the dead. The Kontinental Hockey League has 24 professional teams across Russia, Belarus, Latvia, Kazakhstan and Slovakia that draws players from the NHL and European leagues. Lokomotiv is a leading force in Russian hockey and came third in the KHL last year. It was also a three-time Russian League champion in 1997, 2002 and 2003. “We will do our best to ensure that hockey in Yaroslavl does not die, and that it continues to live for the people that were on that plane,” said Russian Ice Hockey Federation President Vladislav Tretiak. McCrimmon, who took over as coach in May, was most recently an assistant coach with the Detroit Red Wings, and played for years in the NHL for Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Calgary, Hartford and Phoenix. A game Wednesday between Salavat Yulaev and Atlant in the central Russian city of Ufa was called off in mid-match after news of the crash was announced. Russian TV showed an empty arena in Ufa as grief-stricken fans abandoned the stadium. day even as SEC presidents and chancellors agreed to accept Texas A&M if the league has guarantees it won’t be sued over the move. That announcement came early Wednesday and an SEC spokesman had no additional comment. Loftin, however, was clearly angry about Beebe’s statement. “I felt that was really a violation of trust right there,” Loftin said. “We took this letter very seriously. We asked for such a statement. They gave it to us freely. It says here unanimous vote was taken and yet when we look at Beebe’s letter last night it says: ‘No we didn’t really mean that,’ and I find that to be difficult to digest.” Loftin said he believes Beebe’s turnaround is a “destabilizing factor” in the Big 12 and it put the future of the 15-year-old conference in more jeopardy than A&M’s leaving. “By keeping us in this limbo, they really are inhibited from bringing in other members to take our place,” Loftin said. “So they’re creating more instability by taking this particular direction. We were trying to clean this up for ourselves very quickly ... so they could get about their business of replacing us in a prompt way and go forward and hopefully become a better conference.” The Big 12’s future has been the subject of intense speculation for more than a year. Nebraska (Big Ten) and Colorado (Pac-12) left in July, while Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are rumored to be the subjects of courting by the Pac-12 with an eye toward building a superconference. In that respect, DeVan can be a teacher to the rest of the Eagles linemen. “I’m using him as a resource, that’s for sure,” Watkins said. That may help Watkins in the long run. But will it be an immediate help to the Eagles? They’ll see Sunday, when the last move in an Eagles summer filled with them may turn out to be their biggest.

Crosby to return … eventually

Records keep coming for ND’s Floyd

The Penguins star is expected to make a full recovery from a concussion and still play.

By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer

By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby remains confident he’ll play hockey again. When remains a mystery. The Pittsburgh Penguins star said Wednesday he’s continuing to recover from concussion-like symptoms that have sidelined him since last January, adding it’s “likely” he’ll return to play this season. Yet the 24-year-old former MVP remains adamant he won’t don his familiar No. 87 jersey until he’s back at full strength. “Maybe I can get by with 90 percent, maybe I couldn’t but I’m not going to roll the dice with that,” he said. Flanked by Pittsburgh general manager Ray Shero and the two doctors who have carefully monitored his progress after sustaining blows to the head in consecutive games nine months ago, Crosby shot down speculation he’s considering retirement. While acknowledging there’s a “slight chance” he may never play again, Crosby quickly added “I wouldn’t bet on that.” Guessing when arguably the game’s greatest player will consider himself at full speed is an equally risky proposition. Dr. Michael Collins likened Crosby to a Ferrari. Sure, Crosby can go out and skate. He just can’t do the things he wants to do without experiencing a recurrence of the issues that have plagued him

since January. “Sid’s 100 percent is different than anybody else’s,” Collins said. Crosby’s symptoms have included “fogginess” that at times made it difficult for him to drive or watch television. He’s also endured painful migraines and likened the recovery process to a roller coaster. The good days far outnumber the bad ones, but the bad ones aren’t gone completely. “I’m lucky,” Crosby said. “I feel like I’m in pretty good shape and on the right end of this right now.” Doctors don’t anticipate the symptoms having any long-term effect on his day-to-day life, with Dr. Ted Carrick calling it “Christmas for Sid Crosby and the people that care for him.” The true test of his hockey future won’t be determined until he gets hit for the first time in a real game. That will likely be months

considering it’s still uncertain when he can begin practicing with his teammates. Crosby said he was making progress last month before his workouts were scaled back when symptoms reappeared after working at what he estimated as “80-90 percent.” “When I really fatigue myself or really stress (my system),” Crosby said, “I didn’t really respond the right way.” What “the right way” will be going forward is unclear. Crosby has basically had to reacclimatize his body to working in space, trusting his right arm is where his mind is telling him it is, things like that. It’s a long road. The end is in sight, but it’s blurry. “It’s not easy to go through that, there’s no guideline,” Crosby said. “You’ve got to listen to your body, listen to your doctors. At the same time, end of day I know how I feel.”

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Michael Floyd insists he’s not counting even as he gets ready to break more receiving records at Notre Dame. Floyd made 12 catches last week in a 23-20 loss to South Florida, giving him 183 for his career and allowing him to pass Jeff Samardzija (179) — now a relief pitcher for the Chicago Cubs — at the top of the total catches list. Floyd also caught a pair of TD passes, giving him 30 for his career and padding the record he already owned. Headed into Saturday night’s game at Michigan, Floyd is 15 yards shy of passing former teammate Golden Tate for the most receiving yards in school history. Floyd also needs one more 100-yard receiving game to tie Tate, who had 15 of them during his three-year tenure with the Irish. Floyd returned to the team last month following his suspension by coach Brian Kelly for a drunken driving arrest in March — his third alcohol-related brush with the law in two years.

966 Shoemaker Avenue West Wyoming

Kelly said he was convinced Floyd has cleaned up his act off the field. And on the field, he’s the most formidable weapon the Irish have. Floyd had 11 catches from Tommy Rees in a victory at Southern California to close last season and grabbed six more from Rees— two for scores — in a Sun Bowl victory over Miami. The Irish made a quick switch at quarterback at halftime Saturday, turning to Rees after Dayne Crist struggled in the first half against South Florida. Floyd had 10 of his 12 catches in the second half as he and Rees clicked again. “We’re friends. And I think he knows what I’m capable of doing,” Floyd said of Rees. “And I guess the coverage that they give us is, he sees it open, so he throws it. There’s nothing too big about that. What they give us is what we take.” Having Floyd on the field helps a young quarterback like sophomore Rees, especially if a play seems to be breaking down. He knows right away where to look. “Having him out there is a definite plus. Maybe I throw to him sometimes when I shouldn’t,” Rees said. “He’s such a good player and our offense is trying to get the ball in playmaker’s hands.”

“I didn’t come back this year to break records. I came back to graduate and I saw that this team had high expectations and could do great things,” Floyd said. “I never worried about the records, breaking them or anything like that. I just play the game.”

Update on jobs Expectations are that fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week, though it’s likely the drop won’t suggest real improvement in the job market. Economists forecast that firsttime applications for unemployment fell by 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 405,000. Applications need to consistently fall below 375,000 to indicate job growth. They haven’t been that low since February. Last week, employers failed to add any net job growth in August, the worst month for hiring since September 2010.

A beautiful quarter? Ulta’s earnings will likely show that consumers are still stocking up on makeup and hair products, despite the weak economy. The company operates 415 stores in the U.S. that include both full-service salons and retail space for beauty products. The company’s stock has risen 65 percent this year, while the S&P 500 has fallen 6 percent. Its earnings shot up 70 percent in the first quarter as customer traffic rose in its stores and online. Analysts predict another big gain in the second quarter.

The Federal Reserve is expected to report that consumers borrowed far less money in July than the month before. That’s a sign that they’re feeling less confident. Consumers tend to use their credit cards less and take out fewer loans when they’re uncertain about the economy.

U.S. stocks on Wednesday finished higher for their first session in four as fears about Europe’s debt troubles abated and the Federal Reserve found modest economic expansion. A ruling by Germany’s top court that the country could participate in regional rescue plans and the Italian Senate’s approval of an austerity plan helped offset fears about Europe. “One of the biggest concerns we have had was the ability of the ECB (European Central Bank) to deal with this crisis, and at least for today, they seem to be moving in the right direction,” said Art Hogan, head of product strategy, equity research, at Lazard Capital Markets. The Federal Reserve’s Beige Book found modest growth in its survey collected on or before Aug. 26 from its 12 districts. “Bottom line, no surprises,” Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak, noted of the information collected by the central bank. All three benchmark indexes finished at their highest levels of the day. Gold futures fell $55.70 to close at $1,817.60 an ounce in New York.

based on past 12 months’ results

The Labor Department said Wednesday that employers increased their postings to 3.23 million from 3.17 million in June. That is the largest number of openings since August 2008. Typically, it takes anywhere from one to three months to fill an opening. More openings don’t guarantee more jobs. The government said last week that employers failed to add any net jobs in August, the worst month for hiring since September 2010. There’s heavy competition for each job. Nearly 14 million people were out of work in July. So roughly 4.3 unemployed workers were competing for each opening. In a healthy economy, the ratio is closed to 2 to 1.

Consol sells shale rights

Consol Energy Inc. has sold Utica Shale gas exploration and development rights in Ohio to Hess Corp. in a $593 million deal announced Wednesday. The deal will give Hess 50 percent of Consol’s mineral rights to about 200,000 acres. The Utica Shale is a gas-rich formation that lies below much of the Marcellus Shale. But the Utica formation extends farther, from New York south to Tennessee, and west to Lake Erie.

Saab files bankruptcy

The owner of cash-strapped car maker Saab filed for bankruptcy protection on Wednesday in a last-ditch attempt to salvage a brand crippled by production stoppages, withheld salary payments and mounting debt. Swedish Automobile, formerly known as Spyker Cars, said the move would buy it time to receive funding from Chinese investors, currently awaiting regulatory approval, and avoid bankruptcy. The company, led by Dutch businessman Victor Muller, has so far failed to revive the loss-making Swedish brand since taking it over last year from General Motors.

LCCC Shamokin site aiding workers With plenty of new students — many of them in the work force and out of school for years — Luzerne County Community College’s center in Shamokin, Northumberland County, realized a need for student tutoring and assistance in basics like math and science. A six-figure grant from a charitable foundation will help meet that goal. On Tuesday, the college will hold a dedication ceremony for

the Goldman Sachs Learning Center at the Northumberland Regional Center in Shamokin. The center, which is a converted former classroom on the fourth floor of the Northumberland County-owned center, includes smart boards, computers and two part-time professional tutors. All of that was paid for through a gift from the Goldman Sachs Gives Charitable Foundation. Laura Siko, the center’s director, said “the bulk” of the money was donated by a cou-

ple who used to live in Shamokin and directed that their donation to the foundation be sent to the center. Siko declined to name the couple but said they now live in New York and the husband works for Goldman Sachs. “They were really pleased to hear there was a college in town,” said Siko, noting that Luzerne County Community College opened the Shamokin center in 1999. The Nanticoke-based college has other centers, in Ha-

zleton, Wilkes-Barre, Kulpmont and Berwick. In addition, it offers courses at high and middle schools in Luzerne, Susquehanna, Wayne, Lackawanna and Wyoming counties. The new learning center comes at a time when it’s most needed. “We’re having more students coming in as freshmen who were underprepared for college,” Siko said. “A huge number of low-income and first generation students.” She said many wanted to better them-

selves and earn a degree for a new career field but were struggling with basic college requirements. Without a staff of tutors, it was difficult to work with all of the students in need. About 550 students are taking classes at the Shamokin Center this semester and all will have access to the learning center. The dedication ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. on Tuesday at the learning center at 2 E. Arch Street.

Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz gestures at Yahoo headquarters in Sunnyvale, Calif. Bartz was fired from Yahoo on Tuesday after 2 1/2 years as CEO. Tim Morse, the company’s chief financial officer, was named interim CEO.

Yahoo’s stock rises after Bartz fired By MICHAEL LIEDTKE AP Technology Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo’s stock rose more than 5 percent on Wednesday after the company fired its CEO after more than 21⁄2 years of financial lethargy. Tuesday’s ouster came as investors were convinced that Carol Bartz couldn’t steer the Internet company to a long-promised turnaround. To fill the void, Yahoo’s board named Tim Morse, its chief financial officer, as interim CEO. Bartz, who became CEO in 2009, lured Morse away from computer chip maker Altera Corp. two years ago to help her cuts costs. Yahoo said it is looking for a permanent replacement. Yahoo Chairman Roy Bostock, also a target of shareholder frustration, informed Bartz about the move over the phone, according to an e-mail the outgoing CEO sent from her iPad

“Swapping the CEO without swapping the (board) chair doesn’t solve your problem.”

Colin Gillis BGC partners analyst

that was obtained by a technology blog. Bartz’s rude dismissal “made you feel a little bit like you were watching some reality TV show,” Forrester Research analyst Shar VanBoskirk said Wednesday. Macquarie Securities analyst Ben Schachter said the handling of Bartz’s departure was unseemly and a sign of even more drama to come at Yahoo. In a research note late Tuesday, Schachter predicted there will be a wide range of conjecture about Yahoo’s future, with the most likely

speculation centering on Yahoo as a takeover target during a vulnerable time. Alternatively, Yahoo could make a bold move itself by trying to buy the online video site Hulu.com, which is already talking to suitors, or trying to sell its 43 percent stake in the Alibaba Group, one of China’s most prized Internet companies. Bartz’s tense relationship with Alibaba CEO Jack Ma had fed investor dissatisfaction about her leadership. Bartz, 63, led an austerity campaign helped boost Yahoo’s earnings, but the company didn’t increase its revenue even as the Internet ad market grew at a rapid clip. BGC partners analyst Colin Gillis said Yahoo’s board “has got to look in the mirror here.” “Swapping the CEO without swapping the (board) chair doesn’t solve your problem,” he said.

LONDON -- The United States extended its slide in competitiveness for a third year by slipping to fifth in the World Economic Forum’s rankings, which Switzerland topped. The U.S. fell one place, two years after losing the No. 1 position for the first time since the Genevabased organization began its current index in 2004. Concern about public debt and deteriorating confidence in policy makers hurt the efficiency of the world’s largest economy even as faith in its financial industry rebounded, the forum said Wednesday in its study of 142 nations. In the U.S., "urgent efforts need to be made in terms of macroeconomic stabilization and mapping out an exit strategy from debt," said Jennifer Blanke, the forum’s lead economist who contributed to the annual study. Switzerland, home to companies including drugmaker Novartis and food company Nestle, was credited for its innovation and technological skills. Singapore and Sweden trailed, with Finland leapfrogging the U.S. into fourth place. Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark followed with Japan sliding three places to ninth. Britain, ranked 12th last year, swapped places with Canada to take 10th. The report also suggested emerging markets are catching up with their richer counterparts. China climbed one level to 26th and Brazil rose to 53rd from 58th while India fell five slots to 56th and Russia dropped to 66th from 63rd.

‘Sleep at night’ munis

Investors looking for safety are buying more than gold and U.S. Treasury notes. They’re filling their portfolios with municipal bonds. Munis? Yes. The debt used by state and local government to pay for projects, such as schools and roads, was considered unsafe early this year. But forecasts that higher interest rates and widespread defaults would mean disaster for municipal bonds were wrong. Local governments have had an easier time than federal lawmakers in cutting spending and raising taxes. In Illinois, tax

collections are up 14 percent from a year ago. In fact, demand for munis is so high that a typical bond now trades at a premium, or $102.06 for every $100 invested, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Bank of America’s muni index returned 1.5 percent in August and is up 8.2 percent for the year. The S&P 500 fell 5.4 percent in August after adding in dividends. It’s down 6 percent for 2011. There have been exceptions. Central Falls, R.I., recently filed for bankruptcy and financial troubles in Jefferson County, Ala.,

have been in the news. But defaults are down sharply, thanks partially to a 17 percent drop in borrowing costs for local governments since the start of the year. State tax collections have risen for 15 months in a row. The reality is that lending to states and cities is considered safer than lending to most corporations. That’s because companies can’t raise money as easily as to pay their bills. “In theory, munis are the next safest asset class to U.S. Treasurys,” said Peter Hayes, head of muni trading at BlackRock.

Predictions that a disaster would hit the municipal bond market this year now look overblown. State tax collections have picked up and fewer local governments have defaulted on their debts. Below are six funds favored by Morningstar. Miriam Sjoblom, a Morningstar analyst, said these funds avoid the most volatile bonds and don’t borrow to juice returns.

Indeed, the old rain gauge is getting another good workout this week having collected nearly 6 inches of rain in nearby Mountain Top and a little farther to west just over 9 inches since last Saturday. Two giant rivers of air originating from the tropics converging up and down the east coast have been causing all the rain, but today I see signs of this pattern breaking down a bit. Slightly drier air mixing in aloft today will serve to breakup the rainfall coverage and intensity, therefore we can expect only showers and drizzle today with additional rainfall amounts of less than one inch. Skies may brighten for a time with more sunshine tomorrow.

EW YORK — So you thought they were gone — gone forever — until Kate Middleton hit the scene. • Then Marc Jacobs put them on the runway, Banana Republic partnered with “Mad Men” and, suddenly, every-

where you look, sheer hosiery seems to be in fashion again. • Since the heyday of

the ’80s, there’s been a casual revolution, a revolt against power suits and the sexy secretary skirt. Both lent themselves to covered-but-sheer legs. Now, why do women need pantyhose? They wear pants, get spray tans and slap on the Spanx. Because legs look better when you wear them, says Cathy Volker, executive vice president of global licensing for Donna Karan, including Donna Karan Hosiery. “It’s like mineral cosmetics on your skin but better,” says Volker, who promises the pantyhose of today boast many advances since previous versions. The fabric is more comfortable, the elastic less restricting, and they can offer toning and shaping benefits, she says. Celebrity stylist Sophia Banks-Coloma is sold. She wore sheer pantyhose to a recent redcarpet event in Los Angeles. “I do think they are coming back. I es-

We can thank Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, for the return of covered legs. Since the heyday of the 1980s, there’s been a casual revolution, a revolt against covered-but-sheer legs. Now hosiery is making a noticeable comeback, in part thanks to the duchess and her sister Pippa.

Locals share engaging proposals

Today’s rules of engagement

By AIMEE TJADER Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

MINNEAPOLIS — An unsuspecting woman cast her fishing line into a Twin Cities lake recently only to reel in a dazzling diamond ring, which had been attached to the hook by professional divers underwater. An Ikea shopping trip for another couple ended with the future groom breaking into song and dance before getting on one knee. To stage his proposal, a self-proclaimed “thrill-seeker” enlisted the help of a pair of Minneapolis cops to fake his arrest for homicide in front of his future bride. Those stories may be rare, but more people are finding elaborate, sometimes extreme ways to propose marriage, wedding-industry experts say. For many couples, the marriage proposal has become part of the wedding build-up, complete with paparazzi-style photography to capture the moment, and often, an audience. Some grooms-to-be are even hiring a “proposal planner” — for a fee of $2,000 to $10,000 — who all but promises that the bride-to-be will say yes. “I’m only getting married once, so I

pecially love them in black or white with a seam up the back. We’re not talking ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ tan stockings, but nice, flattering pantyhose and tights.” Erase any image of brownish, loose legwear that pools at the ankles, she says, and start imagining the stylish Duchess of Cambridge or her sister, Pippa. No one is mistaking them as stodgy or uncool, Banks-Coloma says. Noni Cavaliere, a social-media marketing specialist in New York, wears them; her favorites are those with the sexy Cuban heel and back seam. Pantyhose flatter and help a woman appear professional and feminine, she says. “You have that ‘Mad Men’ influence everywhere, and the very feminine office look is popular again,” says the 30-year-old Cavaliere. “I’ve worked on Wall Street where women wear suits and heels, and I’ve worked in the tech world where people wear ripped

Jason Dailey and his wife, Shelly, of Richfield, Minn., have been married for three years. Jason, who spent months forming the perfect marriage proposal, gave her a painting of the very spot where they were standing, Buckingham Fountain in Chicago. The painting depicted a couple wearing the same clothes as Jason and Shelly and the man on bended knee.

wanted this to be an engagement to remember,” Ryan Calhoun, 28, said of his “shocking” arrest proposal, which he said had little romance but plenty of adrenaline. “It was a little risky, and it takes the right woman to do something like this.” From engagements that create public spectacles to private, jet-setting fairy tales, popping the question is not just becoming a bigger deal. It’s big business, too. Amy Lynch isn’t surprised. The Nash-

ville author and researcher of generations Y and Z said couples are getting married later in life and typically living together before they’re engaged, therefore demystifying the proposal process — to the point that they feel the need to turn it into an event. “Marriage isn’t the usual marker of adulthood that it used to be,” Lynch said. “It’s a bigger decision to make, so the proposal and the wedding have accorded See RULES, Page 2C

After seven years as a couple, Deirdra Argento, 30, of Exeter knew a proposal was coming from Dave Maloney, but she didn’t expect it to happen in the form of permanent body art. “He always said he would never get a tattoo,” Argento said. “But then Dave Maloney made there it was, an impression when near his butt.” he proposed with Two weeks this tattoo. ago Maloney, who operates the AxelRad screenprinting shop in Kingston, called Argento to let her know he’d be taking time off work because the automatic press came down on his back and injured him. That night the couple, along with their daughter Delia, 3, were home relaxing when Maloney asked Argento if she wanted to see the injury. Maloney pulled his shirt up to reveal not a bruise but a tattoo of a panther’s head with Argento’s name etched in it. “I was in complete and utter shock,

Deirdra Argento, no stranger to tattoos, was shocked when boyfriend Dave Maloney proposed to her by way of body art, after insisting he would never get inked himself. The couple is pictured here with their daughter, Delia.

and that was just because of the fact that he had a tattoo,” Argento said. “Then he spun around, got on one knee and asked me to marry him, and I was really at a loss for words.” Someone who was not, though, was Delia. “She was standing there going, See PROPOSALS, Page 2C

more importance.” Jewelers say popping the question with a ring is no longer enough. Most women want to pick out their engagement rings, yet nearly 70 percent of women surveyed feel the “surprise factor” is essential to the perfect proposal, according to a joint survey by theknot.com and Men’s Health magazine. Having been in the business since the 1970s, Rich Nordstrom, manager of Bergstrom Jewelers in St. Louis Park, said he’s pleased to see that guys are going the distance topropose,becauseithasn’talways been that way. “This is something you’re going to remember forever and reminisce about,” he said. “Since she already knows she’s getting a ring, there’s more pressure to surprise her so that moment is burned into

should be approached with caution, said Debra Orbuch Grayson, a licensed marriage and family therapist in Minnetonka, Minn. Couples should understand the difference between fantasy and reality and not idealize romance by what they see on TV. “The media — reality TV shows like ‘The Bachelor’ — play a large part in distorting our view of romance and relationships,” she said. “If you start with this elaborate, extreme marriage proposal, where does one go from there?” As the president of R.F. Moeller Jeweler in St. Paul, Minn., Bob Moeller has heard plenty of wacky proposals, but he’ll never forget the story of the guy who wanted to incorporate his girlfriend’s love for animals into the proposal. He took her to the Raptor Center and arranged for an owl to fly over with the ring. “Sure, that’s more elaborate,” Moeller said, but it’s better than proposing over dinner at a restaurant. “Don’t do that. It’s not roman-

tic,” he said. “It’s overdone.” Some guys feel pressured enough to hire help. Sarah Pease expanded her New York wedding planning business (www.brillianteventplanning.com) to include proposal planning services. For $2,000 and up, the Proposal Planner will customize every detail so the only thing left for him to worry about is what she says after he pops the question. “Everyone says the wedding is all about the bride, and the way I see it, the proposal is all about the groom’s chance to shine,” Pease said. “This is his moment to put all of his heart and creativity into something that’s a memory they’ll have for the rest of their lives together.”

jeans, flip-flops and a ripped Tshirt. I couldn’t do that. I like looking like a girl all the time, and pantyhose is part of that.” She’s not wearing them on the hottest days of the summer, of course, but on that first day with a fall chill, she’ll likely be rocking the sheerest pair she can find. “I like the shiny ones that Kate Middleton wears. Like that compression of Spandex and how it looks with a pencil skirt.” Pantyhose should be a given for job interviews, says Julie Perez, a 22-year-old apparel studies student at the University of Arkansas. “My professors say, ‘Hosiery — you still have to do it. Yes, it’s 2011, but you have to do it.’ ” Perez says she doesn’t really mind. She’s a fan of how the Middletons look, and she’s loving the sheer dot-covered hosiery in the Banana Republic ads. “Maybe I’m just old-fashioned like that,” she says. Perhaps stockings and even pantyhose as Betty Draper and Joan Holloway knew them are a thing of the past, says “Mad Men” costume designer Janie Bryant,

and those uncomfortable things should stay that way. But if you’re talking about a modern pair of textured tights, lace tights or seamed sheers (with the added benefit of shapewear), you could be at the forefront of the next big thing, Bryant says. “The trend of the natural leg came to be, and people just gave in that this item was so uncomfortable — and with the suntan leg, it was hard to get the right color. It’s like the slip. It was oldfashioned. But then the slip came back in as streetwear, and I think the trend for legwear is that it’s back and going strong — although probably not the suntan ones.” Market research firm NPD puts women’s hosiery sales in the U.S. at more than $3 billion, up 2.9 percent from May 2010 to May 2011. Tights are the market leaders, showing an almost 30 percent increase in sales — and stockings sales are up, too. Pantyhose sales, based on dollar amount, dipped 2.7 percent over the year, but Donna Karan’s Volker says recent business of sheers is booming. “For the Middleton generation, hosiery is new to them. They have always worn tights, and they don’t see sheers as a necessary evil,” she says. “They see it as an enhancement.”

her memory forever.” Contests for the ultimate proposal story — and an opportunity for 15 minutes of viral fame — also help drive elaborately staged public engagements inspired by flash mobs, sporting events and unusual follies. In fact, private proposals decreased 57 percent from the previous year in a recent survey by theknot.com and weddingchannel.com. A public proposal was the perfect fit for Andrew Watson of Chaska, Minn. The interactive developer randomly chose Ikea in Bloomington to ask his girlfriend, Kirsten, for her hand in marriage. As she sat on a black leather sofa, Watson performed a show tune from her favorite musical. The proposal, which was filmed, can be found on YouTube by searching “Ikea marriage proposal.” “One of the things she likes about me is the fun and crazy stuff I come up with,” Watson said. “This fit the bill, strangely enough.” Such extreme engagements

the question I always asked jokingly,” Van Stone said. “Thinking it was just another one of his rhetorical questions, I laughed and said yes,” Webby, who also lives in Wilkes-Barre, said. “Then he pulled out a ring. My reaction was, ‘Are you serious?’ ” Webby again probed, asking if it was a joke, to which Van Stone had to reassure her it was not. She said yes and began crying. “And then, of course,” Van Stone said, “her next sentence was, ‘I never cry!’ ” Webby said the completely unexpected proposal fulfilled all her hopes. “It was the perfect setting, and I didn’t even mind he didn’t get down on one knee,” she said, noting it was a special moment between the two of them and “nothing else mattered.”

Center in New York City to pop the question to his girlfriend of four years, Loriah Webby, 24. “Loriah has always been very clear that however I proposed, it had to be something that held special meaning for us, so I would always jokingly ask if she would say yes in a certain scenario, like putting the ring on the dog’s collar or while on a cruise,” Van Stone said. “Most of the time the answer was that it was too cheesy or cliché.” Van Stone decided New York was the best option, as the couple made it a habit to visit the city every year since they began dating.

Issues of identity are serious matters for adoptees and their families Dear Abby: May I weigh in on the letter from “Noah’s Real Dad in New York” (June 27), whose adult adopted son wants to reclaim his original last name? I am an adult adoptee who searched for and found my birth family. I also joined a support group that was formed to support the adoption triad. Research has shown that male adoptees struggle with their identity more than females do. After all, in our patriarchal society it is the male surname that most often does not get changed in marriage. Women are accustomed to the fact that they will most likely change

DEAR ABBY ADVICE their name. This family needs to do some reading on the subject. There are many resources out there. A family counselor who isn’t well-educated about adoption issues will not be helpful. Unless you walk in an adoptee’s shoes you cannot judge their actions. After all, the adoption decision is made without the consent of the child. We also resent being treated like children after we are adults. Noah is a 34-year-old adult able to make his own choices and

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

decisions. Noah is fortunate that he knows his birth father and didn’t have to search a bureaucratic maze to obtain any information. Laws have been passed in several, not all, states allowing adoptees to get important information about their birth families that is necessary for taking care of ourselves and our own children. — Debbie in Florida Dear Debbie: Your letter reflects the strong sentiments of many adoptees and their families who wrote to me expressing their disappointment in my reply to Noah’s adoptive father. Here is another response: Dear Abby: I am an adoptive parent

CRYPTOQUOTE

in an open adoption with our children’s birth families, and I vehemently disagree with what you wrote. My children have two mothers and two fathers. My husband and I are the parents who are raising them, but that slip of paper signed by a judge does not erase their family of origin. It shouldn’t. They have an adoptive family and a biological one and should be able to have a relationship with both. My children also have two names. The names they were given at birth and the names my husband and I gave them when we adopted them as infants. They will always know about these two sets of names. When they are older, if they wish to be called by their birth name,

we will have to respect that. It does not mean they love us less or that we are not their parents. What it DOES mean is that adoption is more complicated than most people realize, and as our children grow into adults, we need to give them the space and freedom to discover for themselves who they are. — An Adoptive Mother in Illinois

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will be easy for you to think of others. You’ll be treated with the respect you deserve, largely because you are so respectful of everyone with whom you have dealings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you look back on what you once thought was a huge problem, you can’t believe how complicated it seemed. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t be too timid to ask for help. The more you involve others in your process the more cooperation you will receive. By asking for help, you will give others the opportunity to do something they will later be proud of. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Keep your energy contained. Don’t let friends lead you off your path. Stay focused. Instead of doing a million different tasks and being busy, do one task a million times and be successful. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may find it challenging to stick to your schedule. Much of it just doesn’t sound appealing to you anymore. You crave new and exciting twists. Your association with a Gemini could provide just what you need. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are highly imaginative and will benefit from pursuing your artistic whims. Be careful not to seek a metaphysical explanation for a problem that could be solved easily through practical means. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will find inspiration as you withdraw from the mainstream and investigate new venues. You may do this via the Internet, though it will be more motivating to talk

to people face to face and see an environment first hand. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are some things in your life that you haven’t thought to question until recently. Now you’re filled with questions, and you will find answers as you bring your quiet and luminous gaze to the moon. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be analyzing someone’s contributions and interactions with you. To you, it feels like the kindness this person shows is motivated by fundamentally selfish reasons, and you may very well be right. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Parenthood, friendship and romance are not normally classified as competitive events. However, today presents an interesting scenario. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you consider to be trivial, someone else considers to be deeply profound and personal. You are aware of these differences in opinion and will tread carefully. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are even more resilient than usual and will shake off the troubles of yesterday and come bounding into brand-new troubles that are far more interesting, exciting and glamorous. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 8). This year sees you becoming a master of your time. You’ll make meaningful connections this fall, and many hours will be spent with a special loved one. A work cycle ends in December, and new exciting projects start in 2012. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 14, 38, 11 and 27.

LUZERNE/SCHUYLKILL COUNTIES WORKFORCE INVESTMENT ACT (WIA) PY 10 LOCAL PLAN MODIFICATION Legal Notice Section 118 of the Workforce Investment Act requires each local Workforce Investment Board (WIB) make its proposed Title I, WIA PY10 Local Operational Plan Modification available to the public for review and/or comment. The L/S WIB, Inc. hereby announces a 30-day comment period commencing on Thursday, September 8, 2011 and continuing through Friday, October 7, 2011. Any and all interested parties may view the Local Plan Modification on its website at www.lswib.org. Comments may be directed to information@lswib.org. Lucyann Vierling, Executive Director, Staff to the Workforce Investment Board, Inc. Luzerne County Board of Commissioners: Maryanne C. Petrilla, Chair Thomas Cooney Stephen A. Urban Schuylkill County Board of Commissioners: Mantura Gallagher, Chair Francis V. McAndrew Frank Staudenmeier

Control Measures under Consideration by the Ozone Transport Commission; Public Comment Period The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is seeking comments on control measures under consideration by the Ozone Transport Commission (Commission) for the attainment and maintenance of the ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). This public comment period is consistent with the requirements of section 7.4 of the Air Pollution Control Act (35 P.S. § 4007.4), which requires an opportunity for public review and comment of recommendations for additional control measures prior to final action by the Commission. The Commission, a multi-state organization created under sections 176A and 184 of the Federal Clean Air Act, is authorized to develop recommendations for additional control measures to mitigate the transport of ozone and its precursors in the Ozone Transport Region (OTR) established by operation of law. In addition to this Commonwealth, OTR is comprised of the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. In September 2011, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to revise the primary and secondary ozone NAAQS to be more protective of public health and the environment. The EPA published a notice proposing a revised primary ozone NAAQS ranging from 0.060 to 0.070 parts per million (ppm) to protect public health and a new cumulative, seasonal secondary standard ranging from 7-15 ppm-hours to protect sensitive vegetation and ecosystems in the Federal Register on January 19, 2010 (75 FR2938). Based on current ozone data, all monitored areas of this Commonwealth would be designated as ''nonattainment'' for a revised ozone standard if the EPA adopts the primary ozone NAAQS within the 0.060 to 0.065 ppm ranges. When the EPA establishes a NAAQS, states must submit State Implementation Plan revisions to demonstrate attainment and maintenance of the NAAQS in a timely fashion, and to demonstrate progress in making reductions in nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are ozone precursors. The Department will collaborate with the Commission member states and other regional organizations to develop cost-effective strategies for attaining and maintaining the ozone NAAQS and to develop the necessary air quality attainment demonstrations. The Commission has issued a charge to the mobile, stationary and area source and modeling committees to identify the measures and develop model rules, if necessary, for consideration by the OTC in November 2011. The Commission is also holding public stakeholder meetings on potential control measures in Baltimore on September 8, 2011. Department staff will review stakeholder comments submitted to the Commission on the proposed measures and will also consider those comments prior to final Commission action on the proposed control measures and model rules. The Commission may consider final action during its annual meeting on November 10, 2011, which would commit signatory states to pursue the adoption and implementation of the following control strategies and provide a model rule to assist states: • Control of volatile organic compound emissions from industrial degreasing operations • Limits on idling of nonroad diesel vehicles and equipment • Control of nitrogen oxide emissions from natural gas pipeline compressor fuel-fired prime movers (spark-ignited reciprocating internal combustion engines or combustion turbines) The Commission may also consider revisions of previously adopted model rules for consumer products and for motor vehicle and motor equipment non-assembly line coating operations.

LUZERNE AND SCHUYLKILL COUNTIES DO NOT DISCRIMINATE ON THE BASIS OF RACE, COLOR, NATIONAL ORIGIN, SEX, RELIGION, AGE, DISABILITY OR FAMILIAL STATUS IN EMPLOYMENT OR THE PROVISION OF SERVICES.

Materials describing the potential control measures can be found on the Department's web site at www.depweb. state.pa.us, choose “Air Quality.” Additional materials can be found at the Commission web site, www.otcair.org, choose ''Meetings.''

150 Special Notices

Comments should be sent by October 10, 2011, to Arleen Shulman, Chief, Division of Air Resource Management, Bureau of Air Quality, P.O. Box 8468, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8468 or ashulman@state.pa.us. The Department will consider and retain all comments, but will not prepare a comment and response document.

Adoption by the Commission of any of the NOx and VOC measures is considered a commitment by signatory states to pursue legislative or regulatory action to adopt and implement these measures. Any control measure proposed for promulgation in this Commonwealth would be subject to the Commonwealth’s notice and comment rulemaking process under the Commonwealth Documents Law, Regulatory Review Act and Commonwealth Attorneys Act.
