Officials want answers on gauge By EDWARD LEWIS and TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER elewis@timesleader.com tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County officials are demanding answers from the U.S. Geological Survey as to why they were never told that a gauge measuring the depth of the Susquehanna River was only good to 38.5 feet instead of the height of the levees. Jim Brozena, head of the coun-

ty’s flood authority, said he, the Army Corps of Engineers and the National Weather Service all believed the gauge would measure the river depth up to 41 feet. That faulty belief was partly to blame for an erroneous crest level that was reported during widespread flooding last week, he said. “A lot of things hinge on that gauge information,” Brozena said Thursday. “If the National Weather Service had that information, we would have changed the projected crest.” Brozena said that had he known the gauge measured to

only 38.5 feet, he would have sent crews out sooner to do manual measurements. That would have allowed for a more accurate crest projection, which might have helped prevent some of the damage that occurred, he said. “It would have given us the

ability to issue a warning to allow more people to get out of harm’s way and save more of their belongings,” he said. “We unfortunately exposed people to things we should have been able to warn

NATIONAL LEAGUE

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2011

WILKES-BARRE – Adam Fredmund said Thursday 16year-old Brian Madry was a good friend to him. Madry was always there for him and did not deserve what happened to him on July 18 in a

fiery and fatal car crash. Judge David Lupas on Thursday ordered Fredmund, who previously had been declared a delinquent, to live in a group home where he will be supervised around the clock. Fredmund told the judge he realizes the severity of his decision that night, and he plans to make only good decisions in the future. “Brian will never be forgotten,” Fredmund, 16, said. “I’ll always keep him in my heart.”

Adam Fredmund, 16, driver of a car in a July 18 Fairview Township fatal crash, was sent to a group home Thursday by Luzerne County Judge David Lupas. Fredmund must reside in the United Children’s Home in West Hazleton and attend Hazleton Area High School.

And, in a emotional embrace, Brian Madry’s father, Daniel Madry, handed Fredmund a necklace and held on to the teen and his mother, Jean, for several moments in Luzerne County Court while the judge looked on. Madry would have turned 17 today. Earlier this month, Fredmund was declared a delinquent by Lupas after Fredmund admitted to five charges, including homicide See CRASH, Page 12A

Prison emergency system

The state Department of Corrections announced that is moving forward with plans to streamline its prison emergency alert system. The move will save taxpayers more than $38,000 per year, the system said. Effective Oct. 1, the AlertPA system will be the only system used to notify citizens of prison emergencies. In 2009, the state launched AlertPA, a system that helps officials quickly send emergency landline and cell telephone calls, texts and email alerts, and other important notifications, to users to assist them in making informed decisions. Individuals can register for AlertPA by going to www.pa.gov and clicking on Alerts & Advisories. Users can choose the method of notification – pager, text, email and/or voice message to a landline and/or a cell phone. In addition to calls from AlertPA, the DOC notifies citizens of a prison emergency by sounding the involved

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County judge has ruled that the case of a 17-year-old charged with firing a gun in an October 2010 incident will be heard in juvenile court. Judge Lewis Wetzel made the ruling in court papers filed Wednesday, sending Thomas Otto’s case from adult to juvenile court. Otto, of Hanover Township, faces 21 charges in an incident in which police say two shots were fired in the direction of Jonathan Dietrich. Police say the shooting followed an earlier altercation between the two; the shots did not strike Dietrich, but entered the house of a neighbor.

For several years, the DOC has used two notification systems to insure coverage; however, with the call to reduce spending, this expense is being eliminated. The DOC’s previous contractor automatically contacted listed telephone numbers within a one- or two-mile radius of each state prison. Cell phones, unlisted numbers and e-mail addresses were not included. DOC officials believe that this new approach will actually allow for a wider range of individuals to be notified in the event of an emergency. WILKES-BARRE

State police set event

Pennsylvania State Police Troop P in Wyoming will hold a “Get to know us day” Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the barracks garage, 475 Wyoming Ave., Wyoming. Troopers and civilian staff will be there to answer questions, Displays include the PSP helicopter, the equestrian, canine and motorcycle units, the special emergency response team, collision analysis and reconstruction specialists and mobile recruitment office. The event also is a chance to learn what public safety positions are available to civilians, including automotive mechanic, liquor enforcement officer and forensic services unit. The original request for the transfer came after Otto’s attorneys, Cheryl Sobeski-Reedy and Christopher O’Donnell said their clients case should be heard in juvenile court because Otto was 16 at the time of the incident. Assistant District Attorney Matthew Muckler objected, saying because of Otto’s lengthy criminal record and actions, the case should remain in adult court. Wetzel said Wednesday that having Otto go through the juvenile court system would better serve society and that Otto had no prior record of violent crimes involving weapons. In juvenile court, Otto could face probation, house arrest or placement in a juvenile detention center until the age of 21.

and Misericordia University tied at 52nd for regional universities (north). Marywood also hit number 95 in social work, 112 in physician assistant, 209 in Speech Language Pathology and 411 in nursing. Misericordia ranked 78 in occupational therapy, 158 in physical therapy, and 357 in nursing. • The University of Scranton ranked number eight in regional universities (north), number four in “Up-andComing Schools” (schools “that are making the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty, and student life”), and 14 in “Best Value Schools” which tries to compare net cost to education quality.

• Wilkes University ranked number 68 in “regional universities (north),” number 73 in pharmacy, and 390 in nursing. This is the 28th annual U.S. News college rankings, and while numerous other publications have released a wide array of such lists, U.S. News remains among the most popular. The rankings are based partly on surveys completed by college officials. The same day the rankings were released, a report in The Chronicle of Higher Education noted that the response rate to the surveys has dropped from nearly 68 percent in 2000 to 43 percent this year. Yet, the Chronicle added that is “still relatively high, as far as surveys go.”

THE TIMES LEADER

By BRAD PATTON For The Times Leader

SCRANTON -- It may have been his ninth consecutive summer at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain, but country superstar Toby Keith still made it feel like a season-ending party Thursday night. Touring this time with his “Locked & Loaded” show in support of his album “Bullets in the Gun,” Keith once again brought the summer concert season at the Scranton amphitheater to a close with a bang. After the now-obligatory, somewhat humorous video/ Ford commercial, Keith and his 10-piece backing group (dubbed the Easy Money band) played a boatload of hits for a loud and large crowd who stood, danced and sang along heartily all evening long. It’s somewhat surprising that the same basic show with just a few new hits sprinkled in could still draw a sizeable audience at this point, but perhaps for many it just isn’t summer in Northeast Pennsylvania until Toby Keith rocks the mountain. After opening with the title tune of his latest album and a rocking version of “American Ride” that featured video footage of Scranton and Wilkes-Barre landmarks on the big screens, Keith then scored with longtime fan favorites “I Wanna Talk About Me,” “Whiskey Girl,” and “Get Drunk and Be Somebody.” Keith came up with a nice change of pace courtesy of his fan club, which voted in the ballad “Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine On You.” The singer-songwriter told a wonderful story about how the song was originally rejected by his

record company before becoming a No. 1 hit two years later, and treated Thursday’s crowd to a gorgeous version backed only by a piano and three background vocalists. It was then back to the party as Keith and his band then rattled off supercharged, singalong versions of “I Love This Bar,” “As Good As I Once Was” and “Who’s Your Daddy?” Due to an early deadline and a late start by Keith, a complete review of his performance is not possible. Eric Church, whose latest release “Chief” topped both the Billboard Top 200 and Country albums charts, got the party started Thursday with a high spirited, hour long set featuring many of his big hits. “I like my country rockin’, how ’bout you,” he said as he sang his first hit from 2006 and established his modus operandi for the evening.

Of the new songs, “Springsteen,” “Creepin’,” “Jack Daniels,” and “I’m Gettin’ Stoned” all seemed to go over well with the audience. His latest hit, “Drink In My Hand,” was an early highlight of his performance, while earlier hits “Love Your Love The Most” and “Guys Like Me” also registered with the large crowd. Church finished up strongly with a nice cover of Hank Williams Jr.’s “A Country Boy Can Survive” and his own “Smoke a Little Smoke.” JT Hodges, the latest artist signed to Keith’s Show Dog records label, started off the evening with a 30-minute set highlighted by his first hit “Hunt You Down” and his closing number, “Give It One More Night. Keith and company will be in Hartford, Conn., tonight and will start up an international, USO-sponsored tour at the end of October.

Part of River St. still closed

River Street will remain closed at a bridge near Wilkes-Barre General Hospital after a stone culvert adjacent to a temporary bridge was found to have been undermined by flood waters, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said. Travelers to the area can still access businesses on River Street up to the McDonald’s from the North Cross Valley Expressway and businesses located west of Chestnut Street, past the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, are also accessible. The sprawling Waterfront complex on River Street in Plain Township is accessible from both directions off the Cross Valley. PennDOT has issued a detour for the area. Motorists can travel south on River Street over to the Market Street Bridge and cross to travel north on Route 11 in Kingston. Travelers can then travel to River Road on to Rutter Road and take the North Cross Valley Expressway south to Exit 3, and vice versa to access the other side of the closure. The stone culvert to the bridge that is being replaced, adjacent to the temporary bridge, was washed away. WILKES-BARRE

State Sen. Yudichak urges the vice president to see more of the area that was damaged by flooding. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

Vice President Joe Biden will arrive at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport around 9 a.m. today on his way to visit the flooded area along the Susquehanna River. Joining the vice president will be Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Gail McGovern, the president and chief executive officer of the American Red Cross, according to a press release from the White House. George Bieber, director of airport security, said Biden’s plane is scheduled to depart at 11:30 a.m. The tentative schedule calls for Biden to visit flood victims in Duryea borough, he said. As of late Thursday, there were no plans for the vice president to Biden visit any other floodaffected towns. However, Bieber said, that could change at any moment. Bieber said finding easily accessible motorcade routes was difficult due to the flooding and detours throughout the affected region. U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said he will be pleased to join Biden as he visits the area. “If they are looking for shovel-ready jobs, they are right here,” Barletta said. Barletta said he has met with Federal Emergency Management Agency representatives and they agree that this is a major disaster. “If you took all the affected areas and put them in one town, it would be on the national news every night,” Barletta said. State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, said he hopes Biden gets to visit more than just one town to get a full understanding of the devastation brought by Tropical Storm Lee when the Susquehanna River swelled to a record height. “I am grateful Vice President Joe Biden is putting his boots on the ground to view the devastation of Tropical Storm Lee on Luzerne County,” Yudichak said. “I encourage Vice President Biden to focus the full faith and attention of the federal government to rebuilding our communities and businesses.” Yudichak said he hopes Biden will take a message back to President Barack Obama that the 4 percent interest rate on recovery loans from the Small Business Administration is too high. “That rate must be lowered if we are to get businesses back on their feet and preserve much-needed jobs in our communities,” he said. “Luzerne County has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. We cannot to afford to lose businesses and jobs because the recovery effort is inadequate.”

EATON TWP. – In a region that could use “loads of hope,” Tide has arrived. Procter & Gamble’s “Tide Loads of Hope” mobile laundry unit began washing the clothes of flood victims Thursday at the Walmart Super Center on Route 29. The free service is available to all families or individuals in need of clean clothes, said Ali LaFleur, program spokeswoman. “This is such a great idea,” said Donna Hopfer, 43, of Noxen, whose basement was flooded with 4 feet of water. “I’ll be back.” Erik Cannon, representing Tide, said 14 washers and 18 dryers will be operating dai-

ly from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. over the next five to seven days at the mobile site. Cannon said he and several other Tide employees from all around the U.S. will do more than 200 loads of wash per day. The workers fold the laundry before it’s returned. “Yep, we wash, dry and fold the laundry,” Cannon said. “We will probably do close to 200 loads today.” The unit is built into a truck trailer. Next to the Tide mobile unit, Procter & Gamble has set up a tent to distribute Pampers disposable diapers and Bounty paper towels to families with infants. The Amer-

ican Red Cross was scheduled to set up to distribute meals to flood victims. Walmart is providing the space at no cost.“This is the best thing that could be done for this community, and we are happy to be a part of it,” said Kim Hensley, Walmart store manager. “We need to do everything we can to help the community and the flood victims.” Alex Fried, P&G spokesman, See TIDE, Page 4A

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE -- Alleged looters beware. If your preliminary hearing is anything like the proceeding for Maurice Barnes on Thursday, you’ll likely stay jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility – if you’re not already there. City police arrested Barnes, 18, of High Street, Wilkes-

Barre and a male juvenile hiding behind a shed of a yard on Diebel Avenue just before 1 p.m. on Sept. 9. At the time, most of the Wyoming Valley flood plain, including South Wilkes-Barre, was evacuated due to the rapidly rising Susquehanna River. Pennsylvania National Guard troops manning a checkpoint spotted a suspicious vehicle dropping people

off in the area of Dagobert Street. Police chased Barnes and the juvenile, who were allegedly both found with money, gloves and small pocket knives. A duffel bag filled with items allegedly stolen from a house was found near the two men, police said. At Barnes’ preliminary hearSee LOOTER, Page 4A

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, is calling officials from the U.S. Small Business Administration and working to lower the interest rate applied to small business loans. Right now, the rate is 4.0 percent; the rate for businesses affected by Hurricane Katrina was 2.9 percent. Barletta is a member of the House Small Business Committee and vowed to fight to lower that rate, find out why it was so high in the first place and try to change the system.

flood water seeping from under and through joints in the flood gate poured across River Street and into the basement of the building on Friday. Albert said he thought closing a lane of traffic on River Street in front of the hotel would be prudent because the building’s dentil ornamentation – the brick veneer and stone trim at the top of the building – as well as exterior window headers appear to be in imminent danger of failing. The sidewalk on the south and west sides of the building already is fenced off. But because of the more than 70-foot height of the building, the potential exists that any pieces of the veneer that fall from the top could land in a traffic lane, Albert said. One of the parapets and the exterior brick façade were peeling, he said. If the parapet collapsed, it could fall as far as 30 to 35 feet from the building.

City spokesman Drew McLaughlin acknowledged a verbal assessment from the engineers but said city officials would wait for a written report, which Albert expected to submit sometime today, before making any decisions. McLaughlin said the city has been working on a traffic contingency plan and expects it will be finalized based on recommendations in the engineer’s report. “The city is still preparing those plans to adjust or alter traffic patterns around the building. … Our top concern is public safety” and if traffic patterns need to be changed, the city will do so in a way to minimize inconvenience to drivers “while we explore solutions to the building itself,” he said. Albert said the engineers found that flood waters reached a height of 4 to 6 feet in the building’s basement. “One of our concerns was where all the water went,” he said. The inspection revealed that the flood water eventually escaped through an old steam tunnel at the rear of the basement. The waters left behind 1 to 6 inches of

WILKES-BARRE -- The residents of South WilkesBarre will be showing off their civic pride on Saturday at the 2nd Annual District A “Party on the Park” to be held in Miner Park to raise money and awareness for the community action group. “The group was founded to fill the gap when local government is unable to provide the resources and help that our community needs,” District A committee member Sue Greenfield said. Greenfield said past District A projects include a

He brought a lot of wet clothes that were under water during the flooding. “Well, I’m alive,” he said when a Tide worker asked how he was doing. “The river went over the roof at my place out here.

mud in the basement, Albert said. The engineers also found that flood water encroachment caused structural cracking in the basement area. Albert said that’s a concern because a small degree of movement on the first floor is magnified on each of the other floors moving upward. “A quarter inch on the first floor could be 4 to 5 inches on the seventh floor,” he said. The building is owned by CityVest, a nonprofit corporation that received $6 million in Luzerne County funds since 2002 to acquire and preserve the historic structure, which is located on the northeast corner of West Market and North River streets. The building has been vacant since 1998. The project has been controversial because CityVest recommended demolishing the building after spending millions of dollars to acquire, shutter and unsuccessfully market the property. Upon hearing of the inspection on Thursday, county Controller Walter Griffith questioned why the city chose to have the building inspected now since he was

Cannon thanked her and said that the employees would handle the loads – they reside in towns across the U.S., including Los Angeles, Calif. “Nothing makes a person feel better than being able to put on freshly washed, clean clothes,” Christ said. “This is a great service. I just wanted to help if I could.”

told the city could not have it “arbitrarily” inspected two months ago when he requested an inspection for auditing purposes. Griffith’s office was involved because of the $6 million in community development funding the county loaned CityVest. “Are they capitalizing on the disaster declaration and hoping to get federal funds to demolish the building? I would suggest that it was unsafe, based on (a previous) inspection report, long before the flood water hit. Why use federal money that can be used to help people affected by the flood?” Griffith said. McLaughlin in response said the city authorized the inspection and engineers’ report because officials were concerned flooding might have caused additional damage to the building, increasing safety concerns. “We certainly will try to get (federal) reimbursement for any damage to the building caused by flooding. But any suggestion that we would try to use the flood as a pretext to try to demolish the building is certainly untrue,” McLaughlin said.

Rogue trader costs UBS $2 billion

The arrest of a 31-year-old equities trader is one more headache for troubled international banks.

A new day of freedom begins

LONDON — One man armed with only a computer terminal humbled a venerable banking institution yet again. This time it was Swiss powerhouse UBS, which said Thursday that it had lost roughly $2 billion because of a renegade trader. The arrest of 31-year-old equities trader Kweku Adoboli in London is one

more headache for troubled international banks, and fresh proof that they remain vulnerable to untracked trading that can produce mind-boggling losses. Adoboli would join a rogue’s gallery that includes Jerome Kerviel, who gambled away $6.7 billion at a French bank until he was caught three years ago, and Nick Leeson, who made so many unauthorized trades that it caused the collapse of a British bank in 1995. The scale of those frauds rocked world finance. Banks tightened oversight rules to make sure such large sums could not be traded under the radar. But the safeguards, designed to protect the public and shareholders alike, seem to have failed. UBS discovered irregularities in its

Lung cancer rates fall

The West is leading a national decline in the rate of new lung cancer cases, with states like California and Nevada accounting for much of the improvement, particularly among women. Smoking rates in the West have long been lower, and that’s credited for the good health news for that region. Roughly 90 percent of lung cancer cases are attributed to smoking. Lung cancer rates for men have been declining for years, but the drop among women is much more recent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that lung cancer rates for women nationally decreased about 2 percent from 2006 to 2008, the last year studied. But the rate for women in select Western states fell about 4 percent in the same period. TRIPOLI, LIBYA

Staff at a hospital in Tripoli applauded the two men as they visited patients who had been wounded in the fighting. Gadhafi is still on the run and his supporters are holding out in three major strongholds, including his hometown of Sirte. Gadhafi’s spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, chided the foreign leaders for their short trip, claiming that proGadhafi fighters “are everywhere.” Ibrahim did not say where he was, nor where Gadhafi was hiding.

2 crew die in cruise fire

An “intense” fire in a cruise ship’s engine room killed two crewmen Thursday, injured nine others and forced over 200 passengers to evacuate a popular cruise off Norway’s craggy western coast. Police suspect an accidental on-board explosion. Thick black smoke billowed from the stern of the boat, the MS Nordlys, of Norway’s Hurtigruten line even before it pulled into the dock at Aalesund, 230 miles northwest of the capital of Oslo. Police sealed off parts of the town as the smoke engulfed nearby buildings. The ship’s emergency evacuation began after the fire started at 9 a.m., with more than 100 passengers piling into lifeboats in the frigid waters. The rest of the ship’s 207 passengers and 55 crew were evacuated at the dock at Aalesund, with some crew staying on board to fight the fire. Aalesund Hospital said nine people had been admitted, two with serious burns and smoke injuries. Police said all of the injured and dead were members of the ship’s crew.

President Barack Obama awards the Medal of Honor to former Marine Corps Cpl. Dakota Meyers, 23, from Greensburg, Ky., Thursday during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House in Washington.

Acts ‘above and beyond’ By JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Thursday bestowed the nation’s highest military honor on Dakota Meyer, a young and humble Marine who defied orders and barreled straight into a ferocious “killing zone” in Afghanistan to save 36 lives at extraordinary risk to himself. “You did your duty, above and beyond,” Obama told Meyer after reciting his dramatic story. Though the corporal and a fellow Marine were go-

ing against orders — commanders considered their effort too dangerous — they were doing what they thought was right, Obama said. The president placed the Medal of Honor ribbon around Meyer’s neck, patted his back and shook his hand as the audience in the White House East Room applauded. At age 21, Meyer charged through heavy insurgent gunfire on five deathdefying trips in an armored Humvee to save 13 Marines and Army soldiers and an additional 23 Afghan troops

pinned down by withering enemy fire. Meyer killed at least eight insurgents despite suffering a shrapnel wound in his arm as he manned the gun turret of the Humvee and provided covering fire for the soldiers, the military said. He had been supporting a patrol on Sept. 8, 2009, into a village in the Ganjgal Valley on the day of the ambush. Meyer and the other Americans had gone to the area to train Afghan military members. About 50 Taliban insurgents on mountainsides and in the village ambushed the patrol.

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama won’t include cost-cutting changes to Social Security in his proposal to reduce long-term deficits, a signal that he could move away from some other cuts in benefit programs that he was ready to support during failed summer negotiations with House Speaker John Boehner. “As the president has Boehner consistently said, he does not believe that Social Security is a driver of our near and medium term deficits,” White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage said Thursday. “He believes that both parties need to work together on a parallel track to strengthen Social Security for future generations rather than taking a piecemeal approach as part of a deficit reduction plan.” In July, during talks with Boehner over raising the nation’s borrowing limit, the White House had proposed reducing cost-of-living adjustments for most Social Security recipients, a proposal that met stiff Democratic resistance. Senior administration officials say the negotiations with Boehner took place under deadline pressure to produce a congressional deal that could swiftly win enough Democratic and Republican votes to avoid a damaging government default. That deal collapsed and Congress raised the debt ceiling only after lawmakers and Obama agreed to cut $1 trillion in spending and aim for $1.5 trillion more in deficit reduction by the end of this year.

FDA disputes TV doctor’s warning of arsenic apple juice risk Oz said on his show Wednesday that N.J. lab testing has found what he implied are troubling levels of the poison.

By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Medical Writer

The federal Food and Drug Administration and a leading doctor are disputing suggestions by television show host Dr. Mehmet Oz that trace amounts of arsenic in many apple juice products pose a health concern. Oz said on his show Wednesday that testing by a New Jersey lab has found what he implied are troubling levels of arsenic in many juices. However, the FDA says the lab

methods were not appropriate and that its own tests show much lower arsenic levels. The agency warned “The Dr. Oz. Show” Oz producers in advance that their testing was misleading. Dr. Richard Besser, a pediatrician and former acting head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also scolded Oz Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morn-

ing America” show for scaring consumers with what Besser called an “extremely irresponsible” report, like “yelling ‘Fire!’ in a movie theater.” The issue: Arsenic is naturally present in water, air, food, and soil in organic and inorganic forms, according to the FDA. “Organic arsenic is essentially harmless,” the agency says, and it passes through the body quickly. Inorganic arsenic is the type found AP PHOTO in pesticides, and consuming it at high levels or over a long period The FDA is clashing with Dr. Oz over juice arsenic levels. can cause concern.

Senators will announce flood aid package Financial assistance, tax breaks and infrastructure funding are proposed. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

HARRISBURG – Five state senators will unveil a comprehensive legislative package in response to the devastating effects of flooding caused by tropical storms Irene and Lee.

Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, John Blake, D-Archbald, John Gordner, R-Berwick, and Gene Yaw, R-Loyalsock Township, will announce the proposals during a 2 p.m. news conference Monday in the State Capitol Media Center. “From day one of the battle against Irene and Lee, senators -regardless of political party or municipal boundaries -- have

come together to provide muchneeded relief to flood victims in northeastern and central Pennsylvania,” Yudichak said. “Research has quickly been done to develop a legislative package that will establish valuable resources to recovery efforts for homeowners, businesses and municipalities heavily impacted by flooding.” Yudichak said the package generally will provide financial as-

sistance, tax breaks and infrastructure funding to lift up the communities along the Susquehanna River that have been battered by flooding. “I am proud of the united front my Senate colleagues have exhibited, and the resolve they have shown to get much needed aid to the families hardest hit by this natural disaster,” Yudichak said. Baker said she has been touring the flood region for days, and

she sees the need for new legislation. “Since the storm damage, power outages and flooding occurred,” Baker said, “I have gone to hard-hit communities in several counties to see the extent of the damage and to talk to residents and local officials about what sort of assistance will be needed for recovery efforts.” She said with floodwaters having reached record levels in some

areas, existing federal and state programs may not provide enough help. “There is a bipartisan commitment to deal with this emergency,” Baker said. “My committee chairmanship provides the opportunity to launch what could be key pieces of a flood relief package. The widespread damage dictates that we act quickly. The tough economic times dictate that we act wisely.”

Selenski trial delayed once again Request made by double homicide suspect who is now acting as his own attorney. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The oftendelayed trial of Hugo Selenski in the May 2002 deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski has been put off once again. Selenski was to represent himself in a trial beginning Monday, choose a jury on his own and defend himself against the possibility of the death penalty. On Thursday, Selenski asked that his trial be continued be-

cause of the thousands of pages of evidence he has yet to review in preparation for the trial. “I apologize Selenski for the inconvenience,” Selenski said, “but (the paperwork) is so extensive. I had no idea.” Judge Joseph Van Jura granted Selenski’s request – rescheduling the trial to begin on Nov. 29. “There is a substantial amount of paperwork. I certainly understand your situation,” Van Jura said. Selenski added he wanted to

go to trial as quickly as possible, and realized it was unlike him to make such a request, and that he wanted Van Jura to preside over the case before another judge was assigned to handle it. District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll did not object to the continuance, saying she wanted to have a fair trial for all the parties involved. “We don’t want to do this twice,” Musto Carroll said. In preparation for the now-delayed trial, Musto Carroll, Selenski, the Luzerne County Sheriff’s Department and Luzerne County Correctional Facility Warden Joseph Piazza discussed security measures. Selenski said he prefers to

stay at the State Correctional Institution at Retreat to prepare for the trial, but that it would be easier for him to be lodged at the county prison at least two weeks before to speak with investigators. Musto Carroll said the only problem with Selenski staying at the county prison is that witnesses may also be lodged there. Piazza said that as long as everyone agrees and he has enough notice, Selenski could stay at the county prison and arrangements would be made for anyone Selenski has come in contact with to be moved. Van Jura said the trial will be held in courtroom number 4 at the main courthouse on River

Street and sheriff’s deputies will be posted at each exit of the courtroom and next to the witness box. The judge said a court clerk will hand exhibits to witnesses, and a podium will be strategically placed for use by Selenski and attorneys. County Sheriff John Gilligan said it is possible to close down a hallway between the elevator and exit door in the basement that can be used to take Selenski inside. Musto Carroll said county detectives are available to provide additional security and that jurors from a previous Selenski trial had been escorted to their cars at the end of the day.

Pamela Yanac of Hazleton was accused of taking thousands from prothonotary’s office. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A former clerk in the Luzerne County Prothonotary Office pleaded guilty Wednesday to taking thousands of dollars from the office over a two-year period. Pamela Yanac, 27, of North Laurel Street, Hazleton, entered the plea to one count each of theft and tampering with records before Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello. Yanac, who faces a maximum of seven Yanac years in prison on each charge, will be required to pay $3,050 to the prothonotary’s office and $7,794 to the county controller’s office at the time of her Nov. 8 sentencing. Yanac is represented by attorney Allyson Kacmarski. Assistant District Attorney Albert Yacoub prosecuted the case Wednesday. County detectives say Yanac stole money she collected from a processing fee the county charged customers who applied for passports from approximately January 2008 until December 2009. County Detective Lt. Gary Capitano said Yanac accepted money for passport applications and separate fees for photos, then destroyed the receipt that was supposed to be turned in to the office. That allowed her to pocket the money undetected. Prothonotary Carolee Medico Olenginski, who took office in January, said Tuesday the problem centered on the fact that receipts within the office were not numbered under her predecessor. Medico Olenginski said she immediately instituted that procedure when she took office. Yanac, who was fired in January, came under investigation in November 2009, when acting Prothonotary Elizabeth Decker was alerted to a possible problem in the prothonotary’s Hazleton office, according to an arrest affidavit. Yanac had been filling in at that office for another employee, Sharon Hesnan, who was on extended sick leave. Hesnan got a call from an unknown person on Nov. 16, 2009, who advised her there "was something strange going on" within the Hazleton office. Hesnan told detectives she went to the office and discovered $200 was missing from the register and safe. The controller’s office conducted the audit, which determined $3,050 was missing that was directly attributable to Yanac. She admitted to the thefts after being confronted with the audit findings in August, according to the affidavit.

Lesson in adjustment

Brand-new building a challenge to students By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – Security is tighter, but that’s actually a plus. “It’s nice to see doors that lock without chains,” senior Kirby Szalkowski said with a laugh Wednesday, just a few hours into the first day of classes in the brand-new Dallas High School. In fact the security is so good that Szalkowski, 17, couldn’t get into the athletic locker room to stow her field hockey equipment. She takes a course at Misericordia University first thing in the morning as part of a dual enrollment program, and by the time she got to the high school the locker room was, well, locked. Students get only a narrow window of opportunity to stow gear there, and she had missed it. “It’s still better than the old school,” senior Sarah Pomfret noted, where athletes stowed

A staff member paused after entering the administration office suite and realized the person following him was trapped on the other side of the door because it swung shut and locked. “I forgot the doors lock,” he said as he returned to let her in, noting the old school had no such security feature. “There’s a bit of a learning curve with this building.” But these are growing pains, not permanent issues, and the pluses far outweigh any inconvenience. Asked how he likes the new building compared to the old, Weir dismissed the notion of making any comparison at all. “Don’t even ask that question,” he said with a grin.

Alleged hatchet killer’s trial set

John Stone, 59, faces 1st-degree murder charge in death of Catherine Tabit, 37. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Attorneys in the case of a man charged with using a hatchet to kill a woman met Wednesday to discuss last-minute requests in the trial that is scheduled to begin Monday. John Stone, 59, is charged in the September 2009 death of Catherine Tabit, 37, of Kingston, in his Shickshinny home. Police said Stone used a 13-inch hatchet on Tabit after the two had an argument. Whether Stone’s trial would begin Monday was contingent upon whether the capital murder trial of Hugo Stone Selenski was to also start Monday, because a prosecutor is assigned to both cases. The trial of Selenski, 38, of Kingston Township, charged in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski, both 37, in May 2002, was moved to November, and will not affect Stone’s trial. Jury selection for the Stone trial is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. At Wednesday’s hearing held for Stone’s case, Judge David Lupas made rulings on several requests previously made by Stone’s attorneys, Joseph Albert and Erik Dingle. The attorneys previously argued their client should not face a possible first-degree murder charge because Stone’s actions were not “willful, deliberate and premeditated” and Stone did not act intentionally, all bases for the charge. Assistant District Attorney Jarrett Ferentino argued Tabit was hit with a hatchet at least 12 times in a vital part of the body. Lupas ultimately agreed with prosecutors in his ruling. The judge also said several photographs prosecutors intend to show jurors will be permitted at the trial as long as some are in black-and-white and are cropped. Stone’s attorneys argued that allowing the photos would inflame and prejudice the jury, no matter how they are presented. Ferentino said that in every homicide, there are unpleasant photos, and they are needed to corroborate investigators’ testimony. Attorneys also agreed there would not be any mention of a previous altercation between Stone and Tabit, in which prosecutors say Tabit had to undergo a dental procedure because of Stone’s actions. Albert and Dingle have said they intend to use a mental infirmity claim at their client’s trial.

Back Mountain regional emergency response to tropical storms earns praise Aftermath of tropical storms was the first regional disasters the agency has faced since its inception. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – The Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency performed well in the aftermath of tropical storms Irene and Lee, members of the Back Mountain Community Partnership said Thursday. Mark Van Etten, president of Dallas Fire and Ambulance Inc., said this was the first regional disaster the agency has faced since its inception. He said previously fire departments would work together, but having EMA officials from Dallas Borough, Jackson Township, Lake Township and Lehman Township working through the formal

organization helped to better coordinate the response and recovery efforts. State Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, told partnership members how pleased she was with the constant communication and updates from the EMA center during Irene. “I think everyone and every municipality did a magnificent job,” she said. Chairman Jim Reino Jr. proposed that the partnership apply for a gaming funds grant to construct a centrally located building for EMA officials to utilize during emergencies. He said the building should have supplies, such as generators and sandbags, on hand for municipal officials to access. Partnership member Al Fox, of Jackson Township, said the building should be in an area where it could expand over time for other potential regionalized efforts. The partnership is currently mulling a regional police study.

Chairman Jim Reino Jr. proposed that the partnership apply for a gaming funds grant to construct a centrally-located building for EMA officials to utilize during emergencies. “The days of us staying in our own communities to do things are gone,” he said. Reino felt that explaining the devastation that occurred in the Back Mountain during Tropical Storm Irene and the efforts of the regional EMA would give the partnership a good chance of securing a grant. “We’re in the right place, in the right time, in the right circumstances,” he said. “I think we really have a shot at getting this.” In other business, partnership member Kathleen Sebastian, of Kingston Township, told the group the D.A.R.E. program is in need of assistance in the Dallas School District.

She said the cost for the program would be split between municipalities and the school district. Dallas Township, Kingston Township and the district would be responsible for 25 percent, or about $3,000, of program costs, and Franklin Township and Dallas Borough would need to chip in 12.5 percent, or $1,500, each. Reino said the program has needed additional financial assistance from municipalities only within the last few years because of state budgetary cutbacks. The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program is an educational drug awareness resource for young students taught by police officers.

Sulima agreed and noted Fin is stricter with him during training than he is with Sulima’s dog, Athena. If the borough opts to pursue a police dog it will be in the constant possession of Sgt. John Seranchek, the officer who initially researched the funding availability. Also on Tuesday, council president Stanley Knick called for support for neighboring flood-ravaged Duryea. He said he was joined by several other council members and municipal workers in volunteering their time to help haul away debris, destroyed food and damaged property from Duryea. B. Garret Rogan

Supervisors discuss Wapwallopen Creek

RICE TWP. -- Township Supervisor Chairman Miller Stella talked after Tuesday night’s meeting about the township’s concern with Wapwallopen Creek, which borders Rice and Wright townships. Flooding has been a problem since 2004. Rice residents say it is beyond what is normal during heavy rains and has gone on long enough. Stella said PennDOT has been notified numerous times as well as state Rep. Gerald Mullery, but there has been no response. He said he thinks the creek needs to be dredged and a larger bridge needs to be installed. He said the current bridge acts as a dam, creating flooding. Stella and Supervisor George Vanesky are taking their concerns to Harrisburg to resolve this issue for the residents. Also, Raymond J. Suda was approved by as a part-time police officer. Jim Morrissey

Officials withdraw business permits

DORRANCE TWP. -- The township supervisors handed the owner of J.L. Markets, John Schenck, a double dose of bad news at Monday night’s meeting. They voted to withdraw a certificate of occupancy and a highway occupancy permit for the restaurant and ice cream parlor portions of the business. The actions were taken after Supervisor Gary Zane said a

“reasonable amount of time” had passed with regard to a permit extension granted to Schenck, but it had expired on Aug. 2. Supervisors Ben Ostrowski and Royce Engler along with Zane voted for a motion to withdraw the permits. Attorney Donald Karpowich, representing Schenck, asked the supervisors to grant Schenck additional time. He said a PennDOT official had been at the property on Monday to conduct an inspection in accordance with a highway permit application that Karpowich said was filed on July 11. “All we’re asking for is 20 more days,” Karpowich said. The township’s solicitor, James Schneider, when asked, concurred with Zane with regard to the reasonable time debate. It was stated that, under the appeal process, Schenck now has to submit a new application to the township planning commission and go through another review hearing. Under township code, however, he can continue to operate until a final decision is made on any appeal. It was indicated the matter could ultimately wind up in Commonwealth Court. Tom Huntington

Council member’s passing is noted

HUGHESTOWN -- Borough Council’s meeting Monday started off on a somber note as Mayor Paul Hindmarsh noted that the night’s meeting would be the first since council member Paul Murphy’s August death. Murphy, a U.S. Navy veteran who served on the council for more than 12 years, died Aug. 18 at the age of 67 after struggling with cancer. Hindmarsh said Murphy’s death might seem small in light of the recent natural disaster and this weekend’s 9/11 commemorations, but “every day is precious. When you lose a friend, you lose someone important.” Murphy was known to be community-minded long before his tenure on the council. While serving on it, he worked to improve the municipal infrastructure, particularly the municipality’s roads. Also on Monday, Council

President Wayne Quick Jr. commended the borough’s firefighters who lent their time to neighboring flood-affected municipalities. Hughestown is well out of the flood plain. Its firefighters were able to aid flood victims in nearby Pittston and Duryea. In other business, Quick, responding to concerns raised by council member Marie Griglock, said roadwork on Northview Street will soon be completed. He also said a faulty sewer pipe on Rock Street will soon be repaired. That project was delayed when a contractor had to respond to emergency repairs needed in Duryea after last week’s flood. B. Garret Rogan

Takeover of private roads is requested

WRIGHT TWP. -- Residents of the Hart Estates said Monday night that they want the township to take over the maintenance of their roads. Supervisor Daniel Frascella Sr. told residents that for the township to assist with their private roads, PennDOT specifications for them must be met. In another matter, Terrace Drive residents complained about the flooding issues. They said the Wapwallopen Creek is backing up and creating flooding to the wetlands. Residents want the township to apply for a federal buy-out for the creek. Supervisor Donald Zampetti said there are two storm drains that are being looked at. He also told residents he has contacted U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta’s office to assist in solving the problems. Supervisors said they want residents to know that they are aware of all the issues and are busy trying to correct them. Also, supervisors approved the settlement between the Luzerne County Board of Assessment Appeals, Crestwood School District and HPG International Inc. on an assessed real estate value of $1 million. In other business, supervisors said Congress Road and Woodland Avenue are being paved, and Colonels Ridge cannot be done now because of costs. Frascella also said the Parks and Recreation Department is seeking three new workers. Jim Morrissey

Editorial

OUR OPINION: NOV. ELECTIONS

Quiz candidates through TL board

C

ANDIDATES VYING for elected offices in Luzerne County, including the inaugural county council set to take charge in January 2012, will be hitting the pavement and the airwaves for the next several weeks, asking for your vote. But if given the opportunity, what questions would you ask them? The Times Leader’s endorsement panel, which plans before Election Day to interview 38 candidates in three high-profile races, wants to hear from readers who have questions for the contenders. Send your questions via email to the editorial page editor by Sunday; we’ll read them all and try to pose many of your queries directly to the candidates during our upcoming endorsement interviews. The spotlighted races are: • Luzerne County Council. The field of 28 candidates includes Republicans, Democrats and independents, all vying for one of 11 available seats on this newly authorized government body. Beginning next year, the council will replace the traditional, three-commissioner form of government that a majority of county voters decided to scrap on the heals of a widespread public corruption

scandal in Northeastern Pennsylvania. • Luzerne County judge. Seven candidates seek to claim one of six vacant seats on the bench. The contenders are Lesa Gelb, Dick Hughes, Molly Hanlon Mirabito, Fred Pierantoni, Jennifer Rogers, Joseph Sklarosky Jr. and Michael Vough. • Wilkes-Barre mayor. Incumbent Tom Leighton, a Democrat, faces challengers Lisa Cope, of the Republican Party, and Betsy Summers, of the Libertarian Party. Your question might pertain to only one candidate; if so, please specify. Or it might be a broad, issue-based question for everyone in a particular race. Some questions – including those alleging character flaws or improper conduct – are unlikely to be used during interviews, but rather will be considered as “story tips” and pursued by our reporters when possible. Let us – and let the candidates – know what’s on your mind by shaping a well-worded question. Don’t be afraid to ask.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “If the government can bail out banks, we can take our citizens’ tax dollars and help them.” U.S. Rep. Tom Marino The congressman from Lycoming County, who this week toured flood-damaged areas of the Wyoming Valley, supports federal aid for the cleanup and potentially for long-term maintenance of the Susquehanna River to mitigate future flooding.

OTHER OPINION: MORTGAGE HELP

Refinancing plan worth the effort

R

OCK-BOTTOM mortgage interest rates offer borrowers the opportunity to free up a significant amount of cash by refinancing their loans and lowering their monthly payments. Unfortunately, that option isn’t available to millions of borrowers because plummeting property values have left them owing more than their homes are worth, rendering them ineligible for a better loan. Others are trapped by poor credit ratings or restrictions imposed by their second mortgages. The Obama administration, which has tried without much success to help some of these borrowers refinance, is looking for ways to enable more of them to do so. There are trade-offs, but it’s an effort worth making. At issue are several trillion dollars’ worth of mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that charge interest well above today’s prevailing rate. Enabling these borrowers to refinance could save

them hundreds of dollars a month. It also would help more of them avoid foreclosure, reducing the amount Fannie and Freddie lose to defaults. That’s good for the taxpayers, who are covering the companies’ losses. Cutting the borrowers’ payments, however, would necessarily trim the revenue collected by Fannie, Freddie and the investors who purchased securities based on those mortgages – potentially by billions of dollars. Advocates say that the public would come out ahead because the reduced payments would be more than offset by the reduction in defaults and the benefit to the economy. Lowering more borrowers’ monthly payments won’t cure all of the housing market’s many ills, but it will brighten those households’ financial outlooks. That will boost consumer spending and avert some foreclosures, helping the communities hit hardest by the housing slump. Los Angeles Times

Response to 2011 flooding, like Agnes, a test of our mettle FOR GENERATIONS of Wyoming Valley residents, “Agnes” provided a lasting benchmark in our lives. In a practical sense, the amount of water damage our properties sustained during that June 1972 tropical storm helped determine how we reacted to subsequent flooding threats. But it was our response to the devastation of Agnes that determined the true measure of our community. Back then, as the flood waters approached, individuals and institutions opened their doors to those people who were displaced. As the water receded, and area residents returned to their homes (some to discover they no longer even had a home), neighbors helped each other muddle through – serving to cement our reputation as “the Valley with a heart.” In the weeks after the flood, the mounds of sodden belongings pushed curbside yielded to upbeat placards proclaiming, “Rebuild, we will.” Community leaders, determined to prevent a reoccurrence of such magnitude, began the long, expensive bureaucratic battle that led to the creation of our current levee system. How will our response to last week’s re-

COMMENTARY CHRIS RITCHIE cord-breaking flood measure up? • Will we learn from the systemic weaknesses exposed by the unprecedented assault of water and make improvements? Or, will the lessons be lost to political infighting and finger-pointing? • Once the initial rush of goodwill subsides, will we continue to provide needed assistance to those flood victims living in communities not within immediate eyesight? • Will we work to provide answers to the uncomfortable questions regarding the impact of the Wyoming Valley levee-raising and other construction upon up- and down-river communities? • Amid this struggling economy, can we somehow marshal adequate financial resources to help individuals and businesses recover? And when that recovery funding does arrive, can we resist the temptation to engage in the kind of fraud that marred some post-Agnes efforts and ensure the money ends up serving those who truly need the help?

Will the recent flooding serve only as a literal high-water mark of 42.66 feet? Or, will it come to symbolize a more figurative “high-water mark,” a time when the community rose to meet the challenges stemming from such painful devastation? • Will our elected officials exhibit the political courage to either fund the expensive expansion of the levee system or convince those living in unprotected areas that they must abandon their cherished communities? Yes, September 2011 will long be remembered as the time the Susquehanna River surpassed the frightening level witnessed during Agnes. But, will the recent flooding serve only as a literal high-water mark of 42.66 feet? Or, will it come to symbolize a more figurative “high-water mark,” a time when the community rose to meet the challenges stemming from such painful devastation? Our response today will serve to answer that question for generations to come.

LETTERS FROM READERS

Idetown firefighters heroes around Oak Hill

I

represent my friends and neighbors in Oak Hill who, as a group, wish to publicly commend the actions of the Idetown Volunteer Fire Dept., whose members unselfishly disregarded their own situations to come to the aid of residents in this neighborhood. As did many others in this area, we suffered various forms of devastation from Hurricane Irene. An immediate problem was the rapidly rising water in our finished basements. The Idetown fire company volunteers who responded to our 911 call were calm and listened to the concerns for each situation. They immediately provided relief with their auxiliary generator-driven pumps. They successfully removed almost 3 feet of water from our home as well as from the homes of neighbors who also were without power. They worked all of the daylight hours of that dreadful Sunday and into the dark. We are ever so grateful for their excellent dedication and service to our community at this time of emergency. A huge thank-you to these outstanding volunteers for being there for the Oak Hill residents in our time of need. Carolyn Straka Lehman Township

Local officials showed great leadership skills

T

hank God the larger area of the Wyoming Valley was spared last week, and let’s make sure those people who incurred flood damage get the needed help. Government does work and is needed to help all people when disaster hits; FEMA and state assistance are important to recovery. So is the president declaring this a disaster area. Experienced leadership in place helped to keep things under control and enabled crews to quickly respond to problems. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton and the city employees under his leadership deserve kudos for their work. Also, Mayor Jim Haggerty of Kingston and the muchmaligned Luzerne County commissioners did yeoman’s work during this emergency. The many municipal officials and workers

deserve credit, too. Gov. Tom Corbett also was a steadying influence during this time. Much is left to be desired from congressmen Tom Marino and Lou Barletta, who seemingly support Republican cuts in everything and teamed with their pal, Congressman Eric Cantor of Virginia, who recently said before you issue disaster aid, offsets should be found in deficit/debt reduction. Thanks to all the locals who helped prevent a major disaster. The levee system worked. Bill Eydler Wilkes-Barre

veryone is insisting that the levees in Wilkes-Barre are 41 feet high. It is also stated the Susquehanna River crested at 42.66 feet. It doesn’t take a genius to see that there is something wrong with these figures. If the levees in Wilkes-Barre are 41 feet high and the river crested at 42.66 feet, then there is a lot more of Wilkes-Barre that should have been flooded. To where did this more then 1.5 feet of water vanish? I would like someone to explain these figures and stand by them. James F. Vergura Pittston

them about.” County Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla said she and fellow commissioners Stephen A. Urban and Thomas Cooney were upset to learn about the issue. “At the time, we didn’t know; we were in the dark,” Petrilla said. “Had we known prior to the event, we would have had a contingency plan in place.” Commissioners on Thursday sent a letter to Robert Hainly, as-

sistant director of the U.S. Geological Survey, seeking answers and demanding that the gauge be raised to measure up to 45 feet. “As you are aware the levees in the Wyoming Valley were raised to 41 feet and they contain three feet of free board which increased the height of the levees and flood wall to 44 feet,” the letter says. “We would like to know why the height of the gauges did not correspond to the height of the levee and why they stopped working at 38.5 feet.” Reached Thursday, Hainly declined to comment on the commissioners’ letter. In an inter-

Local emergency management officials learned the gauge had provided inaccurate information Friday morning, several hours after the National Weather Service had stated the river had crested at 38.7 feet. The crest determination was made despite upstream gauges that indicated the river kept rising. Once it became known that the river gauge stopped recording, a contingency plan was im-

Brozena said he is “disappointed” by the problems that emerged, but remains committed to working with all agencies involved. He said he plans to call a meeting soon of the agencies to have a “lessons learned” session. “We did learn an awful lot about the system,” Brozena said. “All we can do now is prepare and move foreword. Hopefully, we’ll never see this type of water again.”

Mike Azaravich of Towpath Court in Pittston reflects on the recent flood and how it damaged his home.

with the water stopping just inches shy of the second floor. He was able to save most of his and his parents’ belongings by moving them to the second floor. But the interior was destroyed. His yard remains littered with a variety of items, including an oil tank, several barrels and an assortment of toys, the river left behind as it receded. “A month ago I had the pool open. My wife was lying in the sun and I was mowing the yard,” he lamented. For Linda, the loss of her home is the second tragedy to befall her. She is boarding a plane today for Texas to attend the funeral of her brother, who

died earlier this month. It’s been a Herculean task to clean the homes, but the Azaraviches say they are determined to stay and rebuild. “At my age it’s tough to start life all over again,” Leo Azaravich said. “You just resign yourself that you’ve got to take it on the chin.” As for Wayne, he is determined to restore the home so he and his family can once again enjoy the peace and serenity he has grown to love. “It’s great when the river leaves us alone,” he said. “Hopefully, by next summer I’ll be mowing my yard again. We’ll cross our fingers and see how many more years we stay dry.”

that “fateful day” and that they carry it with them as a reminder. Fairview Township police and county detectives said Fredmund had been drinking alcohol at a party before crashing a 2004 Kia Optima on Lake Road, an isolated road in the Glen Summit section, early in the morning on July 18. Madry, 16, of Evergreen Lake Drive, Wright Township, was a passenger in the Kia. An autopsy determined he died of multiple traumatic injuries. Police cited several other teens with underage drinking, as well as a 21-year-old for providing the teens with the alcohol. “From what I’ve come to learn (about Madry), he was a young man with potential,” Lupas told Fredmund. “You also possess great potential. It would be a further tragedy if this took away (that chance) of you reaching your potential.” Madry’s teen brothers, Mike

and Matt, spoke of the victim as a teenager who was intelligent, humble, and who was always there for them. Mike Madry said he’ll never forget the words detectives spoke to his parents – that his younger brother was dead. And Matt Madry said he knows, without a doubt, that his older brother made him who he is today. “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years,” Matt Madry said, quoting late President Abraham Lincoln. Carolyn Madry spoke of her son, always focused in life, mostly on wanting to attend either the University of Southern Florida or the University of Tampa. He was so proud of a very high score on his SATs, and Carol Madry said, what is so sad is that he’ll never accomplish his goals. “You have a second chance,” Carol Madry told Fredmund. “Brian won’t.”

Drake’s health is up for debate

UP NEXT

By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

Penn State at Temple Noon Saturday ESPN

Curtis Drake says one thing, Joe Paterno says another. When it comes to Drake’s health, there has been a large disconnect between the wide receiver and the coach this year. Though Drake made his return to the field last week against Alabama, Paterno said Thursday that the sophomore wideout will not play

WEEK 3 H.S. FOOTBALL

Crusaders, Dawgs in key games

Saturday against Temple. Paterno once again expressed his doubts about Drake’s effectiveness for the season. “He will not go against Temple. He’s still sore,” Paterno said on the team’s weekly radio show. “I’m not sure he’ll even go this year. I’m not sure right now.” Paterno has been doubting Drake’s return to play this entire year. Ever since Drake suffered a bro-

ken leg for the second time in eight months, Paterno’s standard line has been that the Philadelphia native won’t be able to play much, if at all, in 2011. Drake, however, has repeatedly disagreed with that outlook, saying all along that he expects to play at full strength this season. With conflicting reports from both parties, it has been tough to gauge Drake’s true status.

After playing as a true freshman and flashing some potential in 2009, Drake suffered a broken tibia in his left leg during preseason camp in 2010. When the rehab went slowly, Drake ended up using his redshirt and sitting out the entire season. He then broke the same bone in the same leg this past spring and is not yet at 100 percent.

Great catch can’t stop Sox lead from shrinking

It’s early in the season, but contests for Coughlin and Berwick are critical. By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

The here-and-now is daunting for Berwick and Coughlin. The big picture, though, is what both Wyoming Valley Conference football teams are taking into consideration even more. Losses Saturday afternoon by either or both would be a setback in the quest for a District 2 Class 3A playoff spot. But with seven more games to play after this weekend, Berwick coach Gary Campbell and Coughlin coach Ciro Cinti prefer to see how things play out. “It’s the third game of the season,” said Cinti, whose Crusaders (1-1) play unbeaten Valley View at 2 p.m. Saturday at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium. “If you look at it as if you lose you’re out, then why play the other seven games? You never know what could happen.” Campbell is taking the same approach as Berwick (1-1) plays at 1 p.m. Saturday at Dallas (2-0), which has won its last 10 regularseason home games. Eleven if the Mountaineers’ victory on Saturday against Scranton Prep – which was moved to Lake-Lehman – is counted. “It’s a long season,” Campbell said. “Crestwood hasn’t played Dallas yet. (Class 4A) Valley West is going to be a player in this. They have to play Dallas and Crestwood. There are a lot of games to be played.” There are four unbeaten D2-3A teams so far. Valley View, Dallas, Crestwood and Pittston Area are all 2-0 and ahead of Berwick and Coughlin in the district standings. So is West Scranton (1-0) and Abington Heights (1-1), with Abington Heights a heavy favorite tomorrow against winless Tunkhannock. So if either Berwick or Coughlin loses, a drop to eighth or ninth in the D2-3A standings is conceivable. Four teams make the district playoffs. Coughlin has the tougher game of the two. Valley View has been gearing up for this season. The Cougars are a veteran team that won the Eastern Conference 3A title last season by defeating Coughlin and then Berwick in the playoffs. Their most notable player is Nyeem Wartman, a 6-foot-3, 230pound linebacker/tight end who has verbally committed to Penn State. The backfield is well stocked with running back Pat Jeffers, who rushed for nearly1,700 yards in 2010, and quarterback Liam Cellejas, who threw for over See FOOTBALL, Page 3B

LOCAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Wilkes, King’s players help out during flood By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

Wilkes University and King’s College students were evacuated from their respective campuses last week when the schools were at a risk of being flooded. That left the football teams with at least five days of no football activities. Some of the players from each team lent a helping hand to those in need in

their spare time. Wilkes football players migrated to the Brookside section of Wilkes-Barre to help flooded victims clean debris out of homes. Some others pitched in by helping coach Frank Sheptock and other administration carry important materials to a higher level before having to leave the city. “This gave us an opportunity to talk to them about what really

matters,” Sheptock said. “We tried to use it as a learning experience and I think they’ve responded pretty well from it.” King’s players were also involved in the community working on similar projects. In addition to helping out flooded victims in the city, Monarch players also helped out communities in Columbia County, which were heavily flooded. Several players from King’s are from

neighboring areas to Bloomsburg and were there to help. “Everyone rose up and helped any way they could,” Monarchs coach Jeff Knarr said. “We try to stress to our kids that being a football player is a talent you could use to help people that are less fortunate. You don’t have to wait until you’re a CEO or making tons of money.” See MAC, Page 8B

OPINION JIM LITKE

Milwaukee is brewing a bad batch Here’s a riddle that fans of a stumbling lakefront baseball team not named the Cubs should commit to memory, just in case of a collapse: If you take “I’ll walk” out of “Milwaukee” what’s left? Me. Coincidence? Maybe not. Brewers fans have been hearing “me” a lot lately — from two of their biggest stars, no less — and the timing stinks. Their ballclub can’t score runs, dropping six of the last eight. The St. Louis Cardinals, the only team with a shot to short-circuit Milwaukee’s first division title in nearly three decades, have won six of their last eight. A 101⁄2 game lead was down to 51⁄2 by Thursday’s day off, which should have been a welcome opportunity for the Brewers to catch their breath. Or not. In an TBS interview set to air this weekend, Prince Fielder reminded anyone who needed reminding this was “probably” his last season with the Brewers. And that one of the things he was going miss most was Ryan Braun, his slugging partner in the lineup and possible rival for the league’s Most Valuable Player award. “It’s been great. Unfortunately, this is probably the last year of the one-two punch,” Fielder said, adding a moment later, “Hopefully, we can go out with a blast.” A blast of what, though, remains to be seen. Fielder’s nearcertain departure was the ballclub’s worst-kept secret dating all the way back to spring training. To his credit, Fielder kept it from becoming a sore spot for most of Milwaukee’s rollercoaster season. Exactly why he chose this moment to rip the Band-Aid off is anyone’s guess, unless agent Scott Boras is whispering in his ear. Either way, fans who thought the 2008 postseason run was painful might want to keep their eyes covered. In addition to holding off the Cardinals for the NL Central’s top spot, the Brewers need a better record than the Diamondbacks to lock up the league’s No. 2 seed. Otherwise, instead of possibly opening the postseason with the Braves at home, they’ll be on the road against the Phillies, whom No. 4 Milwaukee starter Randy Wolf recently tabbed as the best pitching rotation “one through five” in the history of baseball. Oh, and there’s this: Milwaukee has lost the season series to all three likely opponents. After a Wednesday night loss to the Rockies, Fielder confirmed he had said “it is probably the last year,” then reminded reporters gathered around his locker that they started saying this as early as the end of last season. Rising to the bait, one asked Fielder whether anything happened “that makes ‘probably’ more ‘probably’ than before.” Got that? “No, it’s the same,” Fielder answered coolly. “They asked me a question.” See LITKE, Page 8B

Ted Jackson (219-80-3, 27th year) Last Meeting: Dallas 22-12 in 2010 Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs finally got their running game, and offense as a whole, going. RB Jeremy Freeman pounded North Pocono for 229 yards in a 38-28 victory Monday despite running behind a patchwork line. DB Jake Pecorelli led the defense with a pair of interceptions. Speaking of turnovers, they were devastating to Berwick in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game with Dallas. Scouting Dallas: Dallas abruptly turned what looked like a good game into a blowout, defeating Scranton Prep 48-20. RB Jim Roccograndi had a career-high 262 yards on just 11 carries. QB Ryan Zapoticky and big WRs Shane Dunn and Jason Simonovich continued to impress. WR Paul Brace, one of the WVCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best all-around players, is expected to be out indefinitely with a foot injury. What To Expect: Dallas didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss a beat without Brace, but the defense has had some shaky moments that could come back to haunt it later in the season. If Dallas can stop Freeman and force Berwick QB Jared Pierce to throw to his inexperienced receivers, the Mountaineers should remain undefeated. -- John Erzar

Hazleton Area (1-1) at Delaware Valley (2-0) 7 p.m. today

Holy Cross (1-1) at Holy Redeemer (0-2) 7 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Holy Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jeff Stevens (1-1, 1st year); Redeemerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Ostrowski (0-2, 1st year) Last Meeting: Holy Cross 27-13 in 2010 Scouting Holy Cross: The Crusaders nearly pulled off a big early-season upset, but fell in the closing seconds to Riverside 36-29. QB Rob Heyen had another strong game running and throwing the ball. RBs Tyler Hinkley and Joe Merli are a nice one-two punch that will give Redeemer three solid runners to worry about. Scouting Redeemer: Redeemer lost its 13th straight game â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 32-22 to Susquehanna â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but is easing closer to the win column. QB/WR David Gawlas is arguably the most underrated players in the WVC. WRs Eric Kerr and Tom Cosgrove have been making plays, but the running game has been stuck in neutral. What To Expect: A game probably similar to Redeemerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first two games. The Royals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make things easy for Holy Cross, but the Crusaders ability to run the ball will eventually be the difference. -- John Erzar Meyers (0-2) at Lackawanna Trail (2-0) 7 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Corry Hanson (0-2, 1st year); Trailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steve

The Coaches: Hazleton Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Drumheller (1-1, 1st year); DelValâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keith Olsommer (71-61, 12th year) Last Meeting: DelVal 40-20 in 2010 Scouting Hazleton Area: The Cougars looked a lot like those past Hazleton Area teams in their 32-21 victory over Williamsport. QB Chad Hoffman threw and ran well, RB Brian Campbell grinded out some tough yards and the defense made five turnovers. There is still work to do, but it appears the program is back on track. Scouting DelVal: The Warriors finally return home after trips to Florida and the Poconos, the latter resulting in a 28-13 victory over East Stroudsburg South. Veteran QB Bryan Schor had a big game as did RB Joe Santiago. The defense gave up a late touchdown to make the final score look closer and forced five turnovers. What To Expect: This is a good measuring stick for Hazleton Area. A victory over DelVal, which will likely battle Wyoming Valley West for the District 2 Class 4A top seed, would go a long way. However, it seems unlikely. -- John Erzar Pleasant Valley (1-1) at Valley West (2-0) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: PVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Terwilliger (14-9, 3rd year); Valley Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Keating (15-9, 4th year)

Last Meeting: Pleasant Valley 27-20 in 2010 Scouting PV: Pleasant Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40-37 victory over Honesdale is a

bit concerning in that Honesdale had lost 27 of its last 28 games, including many by wide margins. Small but powerful RB Rob Getz scored the game-winning TD with under a minute to play. He finished with over 200 yards. The PV defense was leaky once again. It gave up 61 points in a season-opening loss to Nazareth. Scouting Valley West: The Spartans demolished Abington Heights 51-0 and it could have been worse if the starters played beyond halftime. The defense gets obscured by the offense, but the unit has allowed just six points and 3.3 yard per carry through two games. The last three regular-season opponents have failed to gain 100 yards on the ground. What To Expect: The Bears shocked Valley West last year, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect it to happen again. The Spartans are playing too well to let Pleasant Valley record another shocker â&#x20AC;Ś or even come close. -- John Erzar

1,000. Running back Tyler Phillips and receiver Brian Lalli also drew praise from Cinti. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They come right at you,â&#x20AC;? Cinti said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a strong, physical team and come in with a swagger.â&#x20AC;? For Coughlin, everything hinges on the linemen. The Crusadersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense has been one-dimensional thus far, with running back Joe Parsnik carrying the ball on 41 of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 75 offensive plays. The number would probably be higher if Coughlin hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

FOOTBALL

(  # 4

Jervis (30-54, 9th year) Last Meeting: Trail 15-6 in 2010 Scouting Meyers: The rebuilding process at Meyers appears it might take more than one season. The Mohawks were throttled 45-0 by Dunmore on Monday and there was little good to glean from the loss. The running and passing games were well off expectations. The defense played well early, but buckled under the strong Dunmore attack midway through the second quarter. Scouting Trail: The Lions looked a lot like Trail teams of the past in their 48-28 victory over Lake-Lehman. RB Eric Laytos was a bull running the ball, RB Marvess Rosiak provided big plays and QB Caleb Darling played within the system, which led to timely completions. Trail isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all the way back, but looks like the road is getting short. What To Expect: Trail just has too much for Meyers to handle. The Lions are playing really well, while Meyers is still trying to get a footing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good combination for the Mohawks. -- John Erzar

Pittston Area (2-0) at Crestwood (2-0) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Pittston Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Barrett (2-0, 1st year); Crest-

woodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greg Myers (35-41, 7th year) Last Meeting: Crestwood 42-7 in 2010 Scouting Pittston Area: The Patriots took advantage of a mistake-prone Scranton team to post a 21-14 victory on Monday. QB Anthony Schwab took a big step forward and big-play WR Jordan Houseman got more involved in the passing game. The defense shut down the Knights in the second half. The Patriots will try to win three in a row for the first time since the 2008 season. Scouting Crestwood: Crestwood used the same formula to defeat Pocono Mountain West 21-6 in the only game Friday night involving a WVC team. QB Nick Aigeldinger did his thing running and passing the ball. RB Roger Legg continued to run strongly. And the line continues to win most battles. The defense, though, gave up 155 yards rushing to Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tevon Pugh. What To Expect: Much closer than last season. This is a watershed game for Pittston Area, which embarks on the tough schedule with no foreseeable letup. Crestwood should pull it out, although it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy. -- John Erzar

routed Tunkhannock 48-11 on Monday. Berwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s task wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be much easier, even with Dallas standout wingback/defensive back Paul Brace (foot) expected to miss his second consecutive game. The Mountaineers put on an offensive display in their 48-20 win against Prep. Running back Jim Roccograndi ran for a career-high 262 yards on 11 carries, while quarterback Ryan Zapoticky and receivers Shane Dunn and Jason Simonovich combined for 147 yards and two touchdowns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one kid for them who stands out for me,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, Roccograndi is

their heart and soul. He does a lot of stuff on offense and defense. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you what, this Shane Dunn kid is a football player. He catches the ball fine â&#x20AC;Ś but when I see him play defense heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between him, Roccograndi, (Garrett) Artsma, those guys are really tough. Roccograndi and Brace will get their due, but this Dunn kid is very, very good.â&#x20AC;? Berwick broke into the win column on Monday by defeating North Pocono 38-28. Running back Jeremy Freeman ran for a career-high 229 yards behind a patchwork line missing four starters due to injury.

GAR (2-0) at Lakeland (1-1) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Paul Wiedlich Jr. (13-2, 2nd year); Lakelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeff

Wasilchak (125-49, 15th year) Last Meeting: GAR 40-21 in 2010 Scouting GAR: QB Darrell Crawford continued to be the WVC most exciting player this side of Valley Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eugene Lewis. Once again, he was instrumental in a victory, this one a 29-14 decision over a very good Old Forge team. The defense has six interceptions this season, but will be facing its sternest test to date tonight as Lakeland can toss the ball. Scouting Lakeland: After being shocked by Scranton Prep in their opener, the Chiefs cruised to a 32-16 victory over Mid Valley. Lakeland has its two big guns from last season back â&#x20AC;&#x201C; QB Kyle Kiehart and RB Ryan Nichols. Lakeland is a bit inexperienced up front, but has the beef to match up with most opponents. What To Expect: GAR defeated Lakeland twice in 2010, but that was on the Grenadiersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home turf. Lakeland is a tough place for opponents and GAR will find that out. Still, the Grenadiers should come home victorious. -- John Erzar

Nanticoke (1-0) at Susquehanna (1-1) 1 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Nanticokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Bruza (5-6, 2nd year); Susquehannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dick Bagnall (165-125-3, 28th year)

Hanover Area (2-0) at Mid Valley (0-2) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Hanover Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Hummer (33-26, 6th year); Mid Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Frank Pazzaglia (334-134-8, 43rd year) Last Meeting: Hanover Area 35-14 in 2010 Scouting Hanover Area: No one can say Hanover Area is boring. Its two victories this season have been by a combined five points. RB Parrish Bennett (230 yds.) helped run the Hawkeyes out to a 21-0 lead against Western Wayne on Monday and they had to hang on for a 36-34 victory. The passing game showed some life, but hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put two solid games together in quite some time. Scouting Mid Valley: Mid Valley fell behind early in its 32-16 loss to Lakeland for its fifth loss in its last six games. RB Antonio Russo ran the ball well, but for the second week in a row the Spartans were on the verge of being knocked out by halftime. What To Expect: This shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be another nailbiter for Hanover Area, which has a tough three-game stretch with WVC opponents awaiting. Mid Valley, though, will hang in there for awhile. -- John Erzar Northwest (2-0) at Old Forge (1-1) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Northwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carl Majer (24-12, 4th year); Old Forgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Schuback (69-37, 10th year)

Last Meeting: Old Forge 37-14 in 2010 Scouting Northwest: Due to flooding, the Rangers had just

one walk-through practice before defeating Montrose 30-8. RB Tony Last Meeting: Susquehanna 45-19 in 2010 Scouting Nanticoke: Nanticokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game with Columbia-Montour Politz continued his impressive running with 164 yards. QB Gunner Vo-Tech was cancelled due to the devastating flooding in the Bloomsburg area where the Rams are located. The Trojans will look to pick up where they left off two weeks ago, and that means a heavy dose of power RB Brian Maslowski as well as RB Tom Vitale. QB Josh Decker threw the ball fairly well in a 48-12 victory over Montrose. Scouting Susquehanna: The Sabers bounced back nicely from a heartbreaking loss at Hanover Area, defeating Holy Redeemer 32-22 on Monday. However, they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake the Royals for most of the game despite strong running from QB Sean Stanley and RBs Jesse Pruitt and James Murdock. The team will once again rely on the trio. What To Expect: The game will be won or lost along the line of scrimmage. Both teams need a running game to be successful since neither passes all that well. The team that runs the ball the best will definitely be the winner. -- John Erzar

Stroudsburg (2-0) at Williamsport (1-1) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Stroudsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Bernard (2-0, 1st year); William-

Majer mixed the run and throw, and K Christian Foley might have the WVCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strongest leg after booting a 45-yard field goal. The competition, though, gets much tougher starting tonight. Scouting Old Forge: The Blue Devils had five turnovers in their 29-14 loss to GAR on Monday. QB Colin Carey, though, continued to make plays with his feet, rushing for 161 yards. RB Lou Febbo was slowed down a bit from the opener with Lake-Lehman, but still churned out 85 yards. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the best back Northwest has faced thus far. What To Expect: A tough game throughout, but Old Forge should be able to pull away at the end for a victory. The two teams could meet again in the postseason. -- John Erzar

Tunkhannock (0-2) at Abington Heights (1-1) 1 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Tunkhannockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rod Azar (0-2, 1st year); Abingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Repshis (60-14, 7th year)

Last Meeting: Abington 40-21 in 2010 Scouting Tunkhannock: It was another rough outing for the

with two workman-like victories. They have now won five in a row dating back to last season. Senior Robert Bennie is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the Pocono area. RB Rob Karstendiak has done a nice job in the backfield. Scouting Williamsport: The Millionaires gave up two fourthquarter TDs in falling 32-21 to Hazleton Area. RB Devin Miller went over 100 yards once again and WR Sadiq Burkholder looks like another big-play threat. However, the defense took a step backward. What To Expect: A close game like last season. If the score is low, it favors Stroudsburg. If the game becomes a run-and-gun affair, Williamsport probably wins. -- John Erzar

young Tigers as they were routed 48-11 on Tuesday by Coughlin. Their lone touchdown â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on a 64-yard run by Josh Robinson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; came late in the game. The rush defense is allowing 306.5 yards per game and 10 yards per carry. DB Colton Coolbaugh has three interceptions this season. Scouting Abington: The Comets enter off a 51-0 thrashing at the hands of Wyoming Valley West. They are a better team than they showed Monday, but it might take a few weeks for the young guys to come around to prove it. It looks more like a rebuilding than a reloading year for Abington, which suffered its worst loss with Repshis at the helm. What To Expect: Abington to bounce back in a big way. The Comets need some momentum entering the heart of their Lackawanna Conference schedule and will get a big dose of it against the young Tigers. -- John Erzar

Wyoming Area (0-1) at Lake-Lehman (0-2) 7 p.m. today

Valley View (2-0) at Coughlin (1-1) 2 p.m. Saturday

sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tom Gravish (62-66, 12th year)

Last Meeting: Williamsport 16-9 in 2010 Scouting Stroudsburg: The Mounties are off to a solid start

The Coaches: Lehmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jerry Gilsky (7-6, 2nd year); Wyoming Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Randy Spencer (14-19, 4th year) Last Meeting: Lehman 42-39 in 2010 Scouting Lehman: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a disappointing start for Lehman, which came into the season with playoff aspirations. The offense did some nice things in a 48-28 loss to Lackawanna Trail, but still seems a tick or two off, especially passing the ball. The defense put Trail in some difficult situations, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make key stops and surrendered too many big plays. Scouting Wyoming Area: The Warriors will be be playing for the first time in two weeks after having their game with West Scranton cancelled because of flooding in the community. The offense was fine in a 40-34 loss to Western Wayne, but the defense fell apart in the second half and allowed three touchdowns. The unit had a similar collapse last season at Lake-Lehman. What To Expect: This one could evolve into an arena football game with plenty of scoring, especially now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been shifted to the fake grass field at Lehman. -- John Erzar

The Coaches: Valley Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s George Howanitz (21-24, 5th year); Coughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ciro Cinti (30-27, 6th year)

Last Meeting: Valley View 28-7 in 2010 Scouting Valley View: The Cougars showed why they might

be the premier team in the area with another one-sided victory, over Carbondale 49-6. Pat Jeffers and Tyler Phillips are a dynamic backfield duo. QB Liam Callejas and WR Brian Lalli are a dangerous combo as well. And Penn State fans will get a look at future Nittany Lion Nyeem Wartman, a LB and TE. Scouting Coughlin: Coughlin routed Tunkhannock 48-11 Monday with RB Joe Parsnik rushing for 214 yards and four TDs on 11 carries. RB Zac Evans also went over 100 yards. The defense allowed a TD in the final minutes and has played well over the last six quarters. The passing game hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been effective in its limited usage this season. What To Expect: Simply put, the onus will be on Coughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s linemen. If they can open holes on offense and close them on defense, then the Crusaders can pull off an upset. If not, then Valley View could pull away for another double-digit victory. -- John Erzar

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Broken bat helps Rays defeat Sox The Associated Press

BOSTON — Boston shortstop Marco Scutaro had to dodge a broken bat and wound up letting the go-ahead single through his legs on Thursday night as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Red Sox 9-2 and cut their deficit in the AL wild-card race to three games. Hazleton Area grad Russ Canzler made his Major League debut during the game when he pinch-hit for Johnny Damon in the top of the ninth. Canzler drew a two-out walk and was stranded on first. The Red Sox dropped to 3-11 in September to fall from first place in the division to 41⁄2 games behind the New York Yankees and into a race with the Rays for the wild-card. Boston and Tampa Bay play three more times at Fenway Park this weekend. B.J. Upton broke a scoreless tie in the third inning with his bat-aided RBI single, and Evan Longoria followed with a threerun homer. Casey Kotchman added a two-run shot in the sixth to make it 6-1, and in the seventh Upton hit a two-run homer and Kotchman added an RBI single. Jeremy Hellickson (13-10) allowed one run on three hits and four walks, striking out four in 5 2-3 innings. Kyle Weiland (0-2) pitched three-plus innings, giving up four runs on three hits and two walks. Weiland retired the first seven batters he faced before John Jaso doubled and, one out later, Desmond Jennings walked. Upton sent a grounder toward short, with the barrel of his bat arriving at about the same time as the ball. Scutaro hopped out of the way as the bat went under his left foot and the ball went between his legs, allowing Jaso to score. Longoria followed with his 27th homer of the season, into the Red Sox bullpen to give Tampa Bay a 4-0

Nationals 10, Mets 1

NEW YORK — Ian Desmond had a career-high five hits and Tommy Milone earned his first major league win, leading Washington to a fourgame sweep. Desmond drove in three runs and Ryan Zimmerman had two RBIs for the Nationals, who won their fifth straight overall and moved past the Mets into third place in the NL East. The franchise has not finished third or higher since 2002, when it played in Montreal and ended the season in second place. Reds 8, Cubs 6

CINCINNATI — Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning that lifted the Cincinnati Reds to a win over the Chicago Cubs. Joey Votto led off the 11th against James Russell (1-6) with a double to left-center field. Bruce connected on the next pitch for his 31st homer of the season, giving the Reds their third straight win over Chicago after losing the opener of the four-game series.

Royals 7, White Sox 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Melky Cabrera had four hits, including a home run, and Billy Butler hit a three-run homer to lead the Kansas City Royals to a victory over the Chicago White Sox. The loss officially eliminated the White Sox from the playoffs. The Royals’ five-game winning streak is their longest since they won five straight from Sept. 7-11, 2009. Cabrera’s four-hit game matched a career high and his double in the sixth was his 40th as an outfielder — he has one as a DH. The Royals are the first team in major league history to have three outfielders with 40 or more doubles. Alex Gordon and Jeff Francoeur both have 45. Butler’s 19th home run in the sixth inning came off Mark Buehrle (11-9), who has lost five of his last six starts. Rangers 7, Indians 4

ARLINGTON, Texas — Michael Young hit a three-run double to go over 100 RBIs for the second time in his career and the AL West-leading Texas Rangers completed a threegame series sweep of Cleveland with a victory. Cleveland’s loss cut Detroit’s magic number for clinching the AL Central to one. The Tigers played later at Oakland. Josh Hamilton homered for the third straight game and Adrian Beltre also homered in extending his career-best hitting streak to 19 games. Texas stretched its division lead over the idle Los Angeles Angels to 31⁄2 games.

Howard leads Phillies to doubleheader sweep PHILADELPHIA — Ryan Howard hit an RBI double in the 10th inning soon after Cliff Lee fell one strike short of his seventh shutout, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Florida Marlins 2-1 Thursday to sweep the day-night doubleheader. The Phillies, who won the opener 3-1, reduced their magic number for clinching a fifth straight NL East title to two. Jose Lopez spoiled Lee’s shutout bid when he hit a tying home run on an 0-2 pitch in the ninth.

Pigs lose Game 3 The Times Leader staff

ALLENTOWN – In the pivotal third game of the International League Governors’ Cup finals at Coca Cola Park, Columbus handed Lehigh Valley a 6-2 loss. With the win, the Clippers take a 2-1 advantage in the best-of-five series and are one win away from their second straight league championship. Game four is tonight in Allentown with left-hander Ryan Edell (5-5, 3.27 during the regular season) taking the hill for the IronPigs and trying to extend the season for the Phillies Triple-A team. Paolo Espino (2-1, 3.43) will pitch for Columbus. If the IronPigs force a fifth game, the contest will be Saturday night in Allentown. Clippers catcher Luke Carlin hit a two-run homer in the top of the second to give them a 2-0 lead. A sacrifice fly by Lehigh Valley’s Kevin Frandsen in the third cut the lead in half to 2-1. But that’s as close as Lehigh Valley would get. Chad Huffman notched an RBI-single in the seventh and the Clippers put across three more runs in the top of the ninth for the victory. The IronPigs’ second run scored when Scott Podsednik drove in Rich Thompson on a groundout in the eighth. That trimmed the lead to 4-2, but Columbus’ three-run ninth put the game away. Clippers starter Joe Martinez was outstanding striking out 13 and only allowing one run and three hits in seven innings. Lehigh Valley starter Dave Bush wasn’t as effective only lasting five innings, while giving up eight hits, four walks and two runs.

One name immediately came to mind for Steve Addazio. The Temple coach, who just faced Penn State in Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Outback Bowl as Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive coordinator, singled out a member of the Nittany Lions defense right away when discussing Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Devon Still is a first-round draft pick,â&#x20AC;? Addazio said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding.â&#x20AC;? It was the type of praise another Penn State defensive tackle received two years ago. Jared Odrick was selected by coaches as the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year a few months before he was selected in the first round of the NFL draft. At 6-foot-5, Still has the same frame and the same potential to be disruptive as Odrick. But until recently, he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as successful, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as consistent as Odrick was before him. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell that to Addazio. The Owls coach saw his offense at Florida struggle to deal

It seems to have carried over into his senior season at Penn State, where Still is now a captain for the Lions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That game boosted me tremendously,â&#x20AC;?

calling Still â&#x20AC;&#x153;a really big-league prospect.â&#x20AC;? Instead, Still used his redshirt that season, recovering only to suffer a serious injury the following summer. A broken ankle kept him out for nearly the entire season. Though he could have potentially sat out the entire season and later applied for a medical hardship waiver to earn back a year of eligibility, Still was ready to go by the end of the 2008 season. He pleaded his case to see the field in the regular-season finale, helping the Lions clinch a Big Ten title with a win over Michigan State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Position coach Larry Johnson) asked me quite a few times if I was sure I wanted to go inâ&#x20AC;? and give up a year of eligibility, Still said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I told him, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I wanted to get out on that field as soon as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having injuries like that really does something to you. It makes you wonder if you can play this sport any more. I wanted to leave my name on this program, so I kept going as soon as I could.â&#x20AC;? Now in his second year as a starter, Still is ready to fully deliv-

Still has always had great potential since being recruited as one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top tackles out of high school in Wilmington, Del. He was in line to see the field as a true freshman in 2007 before tearing an ACL in preseason camp. Even coach Joe Paterno lamented the loss of the rookie, See PSU, Page 7B

Still said he never came to Penn State expecting that he would become a captain by the end of his time there. That was before Leah was born and before he discovered he had it in him to be a leader. Teammates all spoke this week about how Still has stepped up in the locker room and in the huddle, providing motivation when he might have been silent in past years. He acknowledges that he has room to improve, of course. On the field against Alabama last weekend, Still was arguably the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best player in a game where the Lions were largely overmatched on both sides of the ball. Now Paterno is hoping Still can help the rest of the defense make that same kind of leap forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought Devon played an outstanding game Saturday. I really did,â&#x20AC;? Paterno said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Devon was elected captain by his teammates. And in his own quiet way, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a guy that leads by performance. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the guys that right now is gonna have to come to the front and pick up a couple of guys that have not had the kind of success heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had or paid the price heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid to be good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to start to pick some of those guys up. And I think he will. I think Devon is really a good football player and a good team player and a good leader.â&#x20AC;?

er on that potential Paterno spoke of four years ago. The Lions are counting on him for more than just production. When he was elected a team captain right before the season started, Still knew he would have to become more of a talker. Known for being fairly quiet and understated, Still has seen his personality change in the past two years leading up to this point. And it goes beyond his onthe-field experiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a daughter over the last year-plus and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really been the motivation for him,â&#x20AC;? senior offensive lineman Quinn Barham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really matured as a man and as a player. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very beneficial to him, having that role as a father now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made him more serious.â&#x20AC;? Leah is now 17 months old and Still is determined to be a permanent fixture in her life. He said her birth helped him better focus on family, school and football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no longer responsible just for my life and my well-being,â&#x20AC;? Still said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also responsible for hers. â&#x20AC;Ś Just knowing that no matter what, no matter how anything goes on the football field, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always gonna love me. Seeing her smile just changes my day. I love being a father.â&#x20AC;?

NBA Continued from Page 1B

“We just want to continue to reiterate that point.” The players echoed their leaders’ stance, promising they won’t allow the union to splinter when the players start missing paychecks in a few weeks. NBPA members have been educated for several years about the steps necessary to survive a long lockout, and Fisher said the union will continue to protect the rights of players who sign overseas this fall. “I’ve never seen this union as strong as we are collectively right now,” said Boston Celtics center Jermaine O’Neal, among the few remaining players who participated in the 1998-99 labor dispute. “A lot of our young guys are wideeyed when they see the numbers at first, but now they’re educated. We don’t need to make a temporary, emotional decision. We need to make a long-term decision for a bigger purpose.” Owners also met Thursday in Dallas. Players discussed union decertification during their meeting, but Hunter emphasized the union believes such a drastic step isn’t an imminent strategy despite behind-the-scenes calls for the move from several agents. NFL players dissolved their union to file an antitrust lawsuit

Newly arrived teammate, one-time closer and longtime match-head Francisco Rodriguez likewise didn’t need much prompting. You’d think the guy would be happy enough just playing for a contender after jumping ship from the sinking Mets in July. And for a while, K-Rod was, or at least happy enough to keep his feelings to himself about being demoted to a setup role. He lost his closing job to incumbent John Axford in the move, but one look at Axford’s numbers — 39 straight saves — makes that decision a no-brainer. Say the same for Rodriguez’s whining about not getting a chance to be the closer, even though there’s a only a dozen regular-season games left. “I’m not happy. That’s the bottom line for me. They told me one thing. They haven’t done it. And I stand by what I said. I’m not lying. I’m not creating something out of nowhere,” Rodriguez said. “I’m just saying the facts.” Conveniently, though, Rodriguez left one important fact out. The Brewers already worked out a way to amend a $500,000 payout in his contract that depended on how many games he finished — even though he’s another almost-certain departure at the end of this season. Now that looks like hush money poorly spent, especially to a club that only recently, and with plenty of trepidation, eased its tight-fisted grip on the payroll. From a distance, the Brewers don’t have the look or the sound of a $85 million-plus ballclub, let alone one poised to make a serious run at the postseason.

against the league earlier this year. The players met two days after a bargaining session between the union’s executive committee and the owners’ labor relations committee brought no progress after the league refused players’ desire to keep the current salary cap system. “We’ve kind of dispelled the notion that the players were not together and they were not in support of the union,” Hunter said. “If the owners were looking for a break in the ranks ... I think that notion has been dispelled.” Fisher also rejected the notion that the NBPA is waiting for a ruling on a charge filed with the National Labor Relations Board for unfair bargaining practices, although Hunter said he plans to travel to Washington next week in hopes of getting an expedited ruling. “Sometimes it’s implied that we’re waiting, posturing, sitting on the sideline and waiting for something to happen favorable for us with the NLRB,” Fisher said. “That’s just not the case. It’s part of this process, but we’re still taking action.” If NBA owners are searching for cracks in the players’ unity, as Fisher and Hunter believe, the union attempted to provide a visual answer. Over 30 players stood together behind Fisher and Hunter at a brief news conference, wearing identical gray T-shirts with one large word in yellow: “STAND.”

But general manager Doug Melvin said the view is different on the inside. He recounted a trip through the clubhouse after the Brewers’ latest loss. “I don’t think it’s going to affect the ball club. When you’re winning like we have been, when you’re playing like we have been, there’s always a lot of interviews. ... If they get asked, players today sometime want to say what their feelings are at a certain point. Any free agent player at this time probably does think there’s a chance of them maybe not coming back.” Melvin made the remarks Thursday during his weekly segment on the team’s flagship radio station. Hopefully, he told the players the same thing, since chances are good that he knows exactly who’s coming back and who’s not. What Melvin better hope is that between now and however long this season continues, all of them remember what it takes to win: We. Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Teammates also helped each other out by offering a place to stay for those who needed to be evacuated and couldn’t make it home because they are either from a flood prone area or from an area that was too far away. MAKEUPS POSSIBLE King’s and Wilkes were expected to play in the second annual MAC-PAC Challenge with the Monarchs traveling to Bethany and the Colonels going to Waynesburg last weekend. Both games were lost, but the schools are talking about making up the contests. Although nothing is set in stone, the Colonels and Waynesburg have the same bye week on Oct. 22 and that day could be an option for the game. If King’s and Bethany were to play this year, the teams would have to get together once the regular season concludes in November if neither qualifies for the postseason. That makeup game would also have to be approved by the NCAA. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED The MAC won the MAC/PAC Challenge for the second straight season, picking up five wins last weekend. The conference clinched the victory despite the outcome of the two cancelled games possibly being made up.

The only victory by the PAC came from a 55-3 win by St. Vincent over FDU-Florham. Lycoming, Albright and Widener all posted lopsided wins for the MAC, scoring more than 40 points and outscoring opponents by a combined score of 131-27. The closest game in the challenge came as expected in Delaware Valley’s 20-19 win over Washington & Jefferson in a matchup of two 2010 postseason teams. In the six games played, the MAC outscored the PAC 181108. In 2010, the MAC conference walloped the competition losing twice, but outscored opponents 251-143 in eight games. MAC PLAY BEGINS With Stevenson added to the MAC this year, bumping the number of teams to nine in the conference, play begins a week earlier than the previous seasons. The slate will be moved up another week in 2012 when Misericordia joins the league. Four MAC games are scheduled for Saturday with King’s being the first to see the newcomer Mustangs and their new home. Fellow Wilkes-Barre school Wilkes also hits the road to play at Albright. The other two conference games feature four unbeatens with Lebanon Valley (2-0) traveling to Delaware Valley (2-0) and Widener (2-0) hosting Lycoming (2-0). In a non-conference tilt tonight, FDU-Florham plays at TCNJ.

Lee leads LSU over Miss. State STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Jarrett Lee completed 21 of 27 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown and No. 3 LSU defeated No. 25 Mississippi State 19-6 on Thursday night. Lee was the unexpected star, firing conservative, but nearly perfect passes all over the field. His 19-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle with 11:56 left in the fourth quarter gave LSU a 16-6 lead.

His only mistake was an interception minutes later, but as it had all game, LSU’s defense stuffed Mississippi State with little trouble. LSU (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) had 14 tackles for a loss and held the Bulldogs (1-2, 0-2) to 123 total yards and two field goals. LSU has won 12 straight games in the series, dating to 1999.

Walking out to get the paper this morning feels more like early November. Wow! What a change, and indeed this is unusually cold for this time of the year. In fact, we came close to the record low this morning of 37 set back in 1964. But don't let this be a sign that a cold and cruel winter lies ahead. Instead, let it signal the start of a dry spell that should last well into next week. Skies will range from clear to partly cloudy this weekend with round-the-clock, fall-like temperatures. A warming trend will begin Monday, and by then a few more trees will start to show some color. - Tom Clark

Spain’s Cabinet votes today on restoring a tax based on a person’s net worth. The tax was suspended in 2008 as the economy weakened. But Spain is one of the European countries struggling with high debt levels, and the government needs revenue. The tax is expected to affect just 160,000 of Spain’s 47 million people and raise only about 1 billion euros a year. Some observers see it as a concession to voters who are angry over the country’s sharp budget cuts.

Mortgage rates keep reaching record lows. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.09 percent this week, the lowest since 1951. The average rate on a 15year mortgage, a popular refinancing option, fell to 3.30 percent. Mortgage rates often track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. Its yield has plunged because investors have been buying bonds on worries about Europe’s debt problems. Still, many people can’t take advantage of the low rates because of high unemployment and strict lending requirements.

Consumers cut their spending in August as the weaker economy and plunging stock market made them uneasy about their finances. We’ll get the first sense of how they’re doing in September when the Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan survey on consumer sentiment comes out. Economists expect a modest rise from August. But be aware that consumer spending isn’t always in sync with survey results – sometimes people are pessimistic but they do spend more.

A joint effort by five major central banks to support Europe’s financial system set off a rally in U.S. stocks Thursday. Gold plunged and Treasury yields rose as traders sold the safest investments. Markets in Europe soared. Daniel Alpert, managing partner at Westwood Capital in New York, said the stock market has been overreacting to Europe’s debt crisis, swinging in response to each new development. “Every time there’s news out of Europe that’s not bad, the market reacts positively,” he said. “You’d think the U.S. economy might be part of what the market trades on, but … today and recently, it’s all been about Europe.”

Scranton mail center eyed for closure

Changes could hit 35,000 workers

B R I E F

By RON BARTIZEK rbartizek@timesleader.com

The mail processing facility in Scranton is among more than 250 that will be studied for possible closing by the financially troubled Postal Service. Postal officials said 252 mail proc-

essing facilities across the country will be reviewed over the next three months. Currently there are 487 such offices. Closing the mail-processing facilities could affect 35,000 workers. The review will examine the feasibility of consolidating work done at the Scranton plant on Davis Street in-

to one in Lehigh Valley. Two years ago mail processing and distribution operations from the Wilkes-Barre Processing and Distribution Facility were moved to Scranton. That change was expected to result in 100 workers at the Wilkes-Barre office being moved to other locations. Ray Daiutolo, a Postal Service spokesman, said the review will include estimates of expected savings,

the effect on transportation and delivery and the volume of mail a plant could handle. “In the end it’s all about maximizing capacities,” Daiutolo said. “We have all these facilities that are operating at way less than their capacity.” That was a major factor in the deciSee MAIL, Page 2C

Healthier choices By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press

HYATTSVILLE, Md. — Michelle Obama said Thursday that a pledge by the Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants and its sister chains to serve healthier meals is a “break-

through moment” for the industry. Darden Restaurants Inc. is pledging to cut calories and sodium in its meals by 20 percent over a decade. Among promised changes for children, a fruit or vegetable side and low-fat milk will become standard

with kids’ meals unless a substitution is requested. No more French fries for the little ones unless an adult asks for them. “With this new commitment, Darden is doing what no restaurant See CHOICES, Page 2C

IMF chief urges unified action in world finance By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The head of the International Monetary Fund called Thursday for bold and collective action to combat a slowing global economy and a worsening European debt crisis. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde also said she welcomed President Barack Obama’s U.S. job-cre-

ation plan in light of the unemployment crisis in the United States. Lagarde will preside Lagarde at her first annual meeting of the 187-nation lending institution next week. A former French finance minister, she took over

at the IMF in June, succeeding Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who resigned in May to fight attempted rape charges. The charges were later dismissed. Lagarde said that heavy debt loads were “knocking the wind out of the recovery.” “Weak growth and weak balance sheets — of governments, financial institutions and households — are feeding negatively on each other, fuel-

ing a crisis of confidence and holding back demand, investment and job creation,” she said. Lagarde’s comments followed critical remarks on Wednesday by World Bank President Robert Zoellick. He faulted the 17 nations that share the euro currency for failing to take tough actions to prevent the debt crisis in Europe.

Separately, the Labor Department said applications for unemployment benefits rose 11,000 to 428,000 last week. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, rose for the fourth straight week to 419,500, the highest level in eight weeks. Applications need to fall below 375,000 to indicate that hiring is increasing enough to lower the unemployment rate. They haven’t been below that level since February. “One bad week means nothing, See JOBS, Page 2C

Mortgages fall to record low By DEREK KRAVITZ AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — Fixed mortgage rates fell to the lowest level in six decades for the second straight week. But few Americans can take advantage of the historically low rates. Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate on the 30year fixed mortgage fell to 4.09 percent this week. That’s the lowest rate seen since 1951. The average rate on the 15-year mortgage, a popular refinancing option, fell to 3.30 percent, also a new low. Economists say it is likely the lowest rate ever on the 15year. Mortgage rates tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. Worries over Europe’s debt crisis are pushing investors to shift money into safe Treasurys, forcing the yield lower. Over the past year, the average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage has been below 5 percent for all but two weeks. That compares with five years ago, when the average 30-year fixed rate was near 6.5 percent. A decade ago, it was higher than 8 percent. Still, cheap mortgage rates haven’t helped home sales. Sales of new homes are on pace for the worst year on records dating back a half-century. The pace of resales is shaping up to be the worst in 14 years. Many Americans are in no position to buy. High unemployment, scant wage gains and large debt loads have kept them away. Others can’t qualify for the lowest rates. Banks are insisting on higher credit scores and 20 percent down payments for firsttime buyers. Many repeat buyers have too little equity invested in their homes to meet loan requirements. Most people pay extra fees to get the low mortgage rates. Those fees are known as points, with one point equaling 1 percent of the total loan amount.

I believe the changes that Darden will make could impact the health and well-being of an entire generation of young people,” added Mrs. Obama, who is leading an effort to reduce U.S. childhood obesity rates. The kids’ menu changes are scheduled to take effect next July at Darden’s 1,900 restaurants in 49 states. Its other brands are LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze and Seasons 52. The Capital Grille and Seasons 52 do not have children’s menus. “We want to ensure that those who dine with us find the choices that they desire,” said Clarence Otis Jr., Darden’s chief executive officer.

If it appears the Scranton plant may close, a public meeting will be held at which customers can voice their concerns. Commercial mailers would also be consulted. Ten other Pennsylvania centers also are on the list for review, including one in Williamsport. In addition to the possible closings, the agency said it plans to reduce current delivery standards for first-class mail. Such mail is now supposed to be delivered in one-tothree days depending on how far it has to go. That will be changed to two-

Officials said that could have some impact on commercial mailers but individual customers are not likely to notice the change. They promised to work with businesses to help solve any problems the change might cause. About 3,700 local post offices also are being reviewed for closure.

S One in three U.S. children is overweight or obese, putting them at greater risk of developing diabetes, heart disease or other health conditions. The first lady has said her goal is to help today’s youngsters become adults at a healthy weight by eating better and getting more exercise. Margo Wootan, a nutrition advocate at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said that revising restaurant food is a critical part of tackling the nation’s obesity problems. “Eating out is such a huge problem in Americans’ diets,” Wootan said. “As a country we still have this mindset that eating out is a special treat and an indulgence, but people are eating out more regularly.” Wootan said replacing something such as French fries with fruit or vegetables will positively influence what people eat because most tend to stick with the default choice. The government soon will begin requiring restaurants with 20 or more locations, along with bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores and coffee chains, to include clear calorie counts on their menus.

but claims have been nudging higher since ... early August. We await the next few weeks’ numbers with interest, and a degree of trepidation,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist for High Frequency Economics. A third report from the Federal Reserve said manufacturing was mostly weak outside of strong auto production. Factory output rose 0.5 percent in August, after increasing 0.6 percent in July. The data suggest the economy isn’t improving much after it barely grew in the first six months of the year and employers pulled back on hiring. At the same time, consumers are being hit with higher prices for basic necessities. Food prices rose 0.5 percent in August, the biggest increase since March. There are signs that core consumer prices could level off soon. Cotton prices have come down by nearly half from the spring, and clothing costs are expected to follow.

Why Greece matters Greece’s economy is smaller than that of many U.S. states. Yet stocks have whipsawed on signs it might default on its debt. Economists are basing forecasts for economic growth in Europe and the U.S. on what happens in Greece. They fear that if Greece defaults, it could plunge Europe into recession and lead to the kind of mistrust and selling of stocks and bonds that occurred during the financial crisis in 2008. How likely is that? No one is sure. Greece says it won’t default, and Germany and France have pledged support for the country. But there’s still uncertainty, and investors are panicky. Some questions and answers:

What’s being done to make sure Greece doesn’t default? A second bailout package in two years was worked out in July by the European Union and International Monetary Fund. But it needs approval from 17 European countries, and that is not assured. How did Greece get into this mess? The government spent too much, SOURCE: U.S. Census Bureau

didn’t collect enough in taxes and had to sell a lot of bonds to make up the difference.

faster than expected. So higher taxes won’t bring in much more money if people and businesses are earning less. Why should I care if such a small country can’t pay its bills? Greece shares a currency, the euro, with 16 European countries. “The whole monetary union gets thrown into doubt” if Greece defaults, says Steve H. Hanke, an economist at Johns Hopkins University. Most important: If Greece defaults, investors will worry that Italy and Spain might follow. Just the fear of default could lead investors to sell a country’s bonds. That would drive up their yields, or what a country must pay to get investors to buy them. A higher yield makes a country’s financial mess even worse.

How does this affect the U.S.? For the U.S., a European recession would come at an especially bad time. European countries accounted for 22 percent of U.S. exports in 2010. And exports have been a big driver of U.S. economic growth recently. Bernard Condon, E. Gramling • AP

States that the maximum rate of interest per annum for the Note shall not exceed 8.00%. 6. Finds that a private sale of the Note is in the best financial interest of the School District. The School District authorizes the Authority to submit its proposal for the purchase of the Note. States that the purchase price of the Note shall be not less than 98% of the maximum aggregate principal amount of the Note 7. Provides for the acceptance of the proposal and the award of the Note to the Authority at a negotiated sale. 8.
