Government shutdown averted

WASHINGTON — Ending weeks of political brinkmanship, Congress finessed a dispute over disaster aid Monday night and advanced legislation to avoid a partial government shutdown only days away. The agreement ensured there would be no interruption in assistance to areas battered by disasters such as Hurricane Irene

and last spring’s tornados in Joplin, Mo., and also that the government would be able to run normally when the new budget year begins on Saturday. The Senate approved the resolution after a day of behind-the-scenes talks and occasionally biting debate, spelling an end to the latest in a string of standoffs between Democrats and Republicans over deficits, spending and taxes. Those fights have rat-

ter relief efforts through Friday. That disclosure allowed lawmakers to jettison a $1 billion replenishment that had been included in the measure — and to crack the tled financial markets and coincided with gridlock it had caused.

The driver of a Luzerne County Transportation Authority bus was taken to a hospital after a crash at East Union and North Washington streets in Wilkes-Barre just before 1:30 p.m. Monday. The bus driver was wearing a neck brace and walked into the rear of an ambulance. A Lexus SUV and the LCTA bus collided at the intersection. Only one passenger was on the bus. She said she was not injured. A woman driving the Lexus appeared uninjured and was talking to an officer at the scene. Police did not release names of the drivers.

CityVest’s insurance agent said he was unable to find another company to provide property and liability insurance coverage of the landmark Hotel Sterling before the existing policy expired at midnight Monday.

09815 10011

Salisbury, Md.-based Tri-State General Insurance had issued a notice in July indicating it was cancelling its coverage of the Sterling effective Sept. 27 because of the poor condition of the 113-year-old structure. Rick Gazenski, vice president and co-owner of J.W. Hoban in Wilkes-Barre and the agent for CityVest, said he had obtained a reasonable quote from another insurance provider, but the company withdrew the quote after recent media coverage about the Wilkes-Barre structure’s continued decline and the city’s closure of the Market Street

traffic lane closest to the property. Gazenski said Monday afternoon he was confident he would not secure any quotes – yet alone affordable ones – before the midnight deadline. CityVest representatives could not immediately be reached for comment Monday. Insurance coverage was mandated when the county loaned the nonprofit CityVest $6 million in community development funds for the project. See STERLING, Page 7A

According to the federal Bureau of Prisons guidelines, former Luzerne County Judge Michael Conahan does not qualify to serve his sentence at a Florida prison that had been deemed by a national magazine to be among the 10 “cushiest” federal prisons to serve time. Conahan Conahan, 59, had hoped to serve his 17 ½-year prison sentence on a corruption charge at the Federal Detention Camp in Pensacola, Fla., a minimum-security facility located adjacent to the Pensacola Air Force Base and about a 10-hour drive from a Delray Beach, Fla., condominium purchased in June by his wife, Barbara. In a 2009 article in Forbes Magazine, the Pensacola facility was deemed the second most desirable place to serve a federal prison sentence based in part on the climate and its close proximity to the naval base, which affords inmates employment opportunities outside the prison.

In flooding’s wake, mold becomes potential health threat Fungi can produce illness By MATT HUGHES



BUDGET ACTION: Dispute over aid for victims of flooding and other events is resolved after FEMA says it has enough cash to finish the fiscal year

By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent



Now that the flood waters have receded and flood victims continue their efforts to rebuild, they are comingtotermswithanewthreat to their well-being: mold. Terrie Kosakowski of West Pittston said she was lucky, in a sense, that she was able to have the water pumped from the basement of her home on Warren Street quickly and called in a mold remediation company within a few days. But as she and her husband, Chris, continue to rip the plastered walls and other flood-

soaked portions of her basement and first floor, she is finding more and more mold. “We’re finding now that we’ve gutted the inside of the house, we’re starting to find mold starting to grow on the plaster and things behind the wall,” she said, and pointed out green and white flecks on a cabinet door in a pile of debris in front of her home. “As we go through the rooms we’ve been treating them with Clorox and some spray the remediation company gave us,” she added. “It seems to be working. If we could get the weatherman to

reduce the humidity a little bit, it would sure help.” Molds are microscopic fungi that produce spores that can be air-, water- or insect-borne. They can begin forming within 24hours of flooding, and can cause illness if not eliminated. Dr. Samuel Hammerman, director of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, said molds come in a variety of shapes and sizes. See MOLD, Page 12A

DURYEA – Vice President Joe Biden’s visit a week after floods ravaged their town raised the spirits of Chittenden Street residents. On Monday Biden followed up with phone calls to boost the recovery hopes of three of the families he visited. “He asked how I’m doing and I told him good,” said Gertrude Yachna, 79, of 105 Chittenden St. “I told him we found temporary housing and that we are going to remodel our house.” Yachna has lived in the home all of her life.

trolled House for a final sign-off. There was no immediate comment from House GOP leaders, although their approval for the measure seemed a mere formality after the party’s Senate leader agreed to it. “This compromise should satisfy Republicans ... and it should satisfy Democrats,” said Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, who added that Budget Director Jacob Lew had informed him that FEMA did not need any additional funding to meet its needs for the final few days of the budget year. “It’s a win for everyone,” declared Reid, who had spent much of the past few weeks accusing Republicans of choosing to heed the wishes of tea party adherents rather than the needs of their own constituents battered by acts of nature. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said it was a “reasonable way to keep the government operational.” But he got in a final jab at Democrats, noting the disaster funds sought by the Obama administration and its allies in Congress were now known to be unneeded. “In my view, this entire fire drill was completely unnecessary,” he said. But not even the dispute-resolving agreement prevented Democrats from proceeding to a politically charged vote earlier in the evening that was designed to force Republicans to decide whether immediate aid to disaster victims or deficit concerns held a higher priority. House Republicans insisted that any new disaster aid for the expiring budget year be offset by cuts elsewhere in the budget, a decision that Democrats seized on in hopes of reshaping the political terrain to their advantage. Because the House is on a oneweek break, it was not immediately clear how the legislation would be cleared for President Barack Obama’s signature. Among the options are passage of a temporary funding measure, to be passed in a brief session of the House planned for Thursday, that would keep government agencies in funds until lawmakers return on Oct. 4. The Senate approved the bill without objections. Alternatively, GOP leaders could call the full House back into session this week for a vote.

that received extensive flooding -- about 339 homes in Duryea had water from their basements to as high as 7 feet on their first floors. Tropical Storm Lee’s rainfall caused the Lackawanna River to overflow its banks and cause record flooding in Duryea and towns along the Susquehanna River that are not protected by levees. “We’ve decided to remodel our home and the vice president was happy to hear that,” Yachna said. “Do I worry about the future? We want to get the house back in shape and then we will worry about the future.” Yachna said Biden said he will keep in touch.

$7B bill flop irks Casey By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Bob Casey said he was disappointed that the initial Senate bill that contained $6.9 billion in disaster relief funding through the end of the 2012 fiscal year that begins Oct. 1 was not passed into law. “After a bipartisan majority in the Senate passed appropriate funding for disaster relief, the Republican leaders in the House slashed this funding in half,” Casey, D-Scranton, said in a statement. “Shortchanging disaster assistance now is an insult to those in Pennsylvania who have been ravaged by the recent floods and will set up another funding showdown later this year,” Casey said. Sen. Pat Toomey of Zionsville, was one of a handful of Senate Republicans who had backed the initial $6.9 billion Senate disaster relief bill. Toomey voted against the procedural motion Monday night to move the Senate’s alternate version to the House bill forward, as congressional leaders struck the compromise agreement, and that motion garnered just 54 of the 60 votes needed. Casey voted in favor of that procedural motion. Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta has said home and business owners should pay lower interest rates on federal disaster recovery loans. Barletta, R-Hazleton, has introduced legislation setting the rate of federal low-interest recovery loans for homeowners and small business owners at 1 percent. Barletta said he has a bipartisan group of co-sponsors, including Reps. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, and Peter Welch, D-Vt. Either way, the agreement assures funding until Nov. 18. FEMA spokeswoman Rachel Racusen, said the agency had $114 million left in its disaster relief fund, enough to last until Thursday or Friday, the final business day of the current budget year. She said the exact timing would depend on the number of emergency victims who apply for aid, and whether any new disasters occur.

erybody; he lifted their spirits.” Valerie Olszewski has lived at 118 Chittenden St. – an eightroom home – since 1990. She said she has received a check from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and is awaiting word from her insurance company before she begins renovations. Olszewski, 67, said her house received water in the basement and on the first floor. The interior has been gutted, she said. Retired after a career in the U.S. Army and the Coast Guard, Olszewski said it will take up to six months to get back into her home. “(Biden) asked me if a mobile home would fit on my property,”

ing project, Olszewski said she is concerned about the possibility of another flood. The Pliska family at 100 Chittenden St. has decided to not return to their home – a three-family building at the corner of Walnut and Chittenden streets. Jimmy Pliska, 47, said he appreciated Biden’s visit and support, but he is tired of being a landlord. The Pliska family lived in half of the building and the other side was converted to two apartments. Pliska said the decision to not return to the home built by his great-grandparents – Mary and Teofil Pliska -- was difficult.

The problem, Pliska said, is that Duryea could see another flood because unlike WilkesBarre and Kingston, it’s not protected by high levees. Pliska said Biden’s visit and follow-up phone call were reassuring, but he hopes to sell his building to a contractor. “He told me to make sure I give Julia a kiss for him,” Pliska said. Julia is Pliska’s 11-year-old daughter. “He makes you feel like he’s your neighbor. I believe he’s doing whatever he can to help us.” Pliska said the decision to walk away from the home that’s been in his family since 1914 is not easy.


Gelb banks on her experience

The local lawyer is one of seven candidates seeking six seats on the bench. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – Lesa Gelb’s 25 years experience as an attorney have prepared her to serve as a judge on the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas, the candidate said. Gelb, 50, of Laflin, told The Times Leader’s endorsement board her many years handling complex civil cases has equipped her with the necessary skills to run a courtroom fairly and impartially. Gelb is one of seven candidates vying for six open seats on the Court of Common Pleas on Nov. 8. The election of six candidates will provide a full complement of 10 judges. Gelb said she has been meeting as many people as possible and telling them about her campaign since she received a nomination on the ballot in the May primary. “I will work hard. That I’ll do,” Gelb said. “I think that’s what people want to hear. I think they’ll have that with me.” Gelb, who defined herself as a “full-time, experienced trial lawyer,” said nearly 99 percent of her private practice based in Kingston focuses on civil work, with 30 percent of those cases in federal court and 70 percent in local county court. Over the past five years, Gelb said, she has tried approximately five civil jury trials, and five civil bench trials – those cases heard by a judge only. The mother of two has settled “countless” civil cases, including uninsured motorists cases and a recent whistleblower case. Gelb recalled a recent products liability case as one of her most notable, in which a 14-yearold girl suffered third-degree burns on 50 percent of her body due to a chemical explosion. Gelb said fellow attorneys told her it would be a difficult case to win, and in the end, the girl was awarded a “substantial verdict” that changed her life in many ways.

PRINGLE -- The recent flood emergency brought out the best in some staff and students of the West Side Career and Technology Center, the school’s administrative director told the joint operating committee Monday. Nancy Tkatch said the school was put into service as an emergency evacuation center for two nursing homes earlier this

month. In addition, the school chose not to turn away area residents who came seeking shelter even though West Side wasn’t designated as an official public evacuation site, so the school became a temporary home to 535 people, Tkatch said. Many administrators, support staff and teachers came to help run the shelter, most without being asked, and took on tasks from organizing the guests to making sure televisions worked to emptying trash and delivering meals, Tkatch said. “They were all over, doing whatever needed to be done,” she

said. “It was a wonderful team effort and I was so proud to see them all step up without even being asked.” Tkatch had special praise for two students and the son of two teachers who provided support to those who sought refuge at the shelter. Tenth-grader Allison Misson made it her responsibility to take care of the pets evacuees brought with them, which included several dogs, a cat, a bunny and a bird, Tkatch said. Junior culinary student Samantha Weiss shared her knowledge of the school’s kitchen and was invaluable in helping to feed

Lesa Gelb, candidate for judge in Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas, says she has the experience to succeed as a judge.

Gelb said that when it comes to ethics, she will have a private conversation with attorneys who conduct themselves in an unfavorable way. And, when it comes to jurors, Gelb said, a prospective panel needs to understand the jury process so the members know what is being asked of them and how court proceedings work. Gelb said there are proceedings that need to be sealed by law – such as juvenile matters – but that other proceedings would be open in her courtroom. When setting bail for a defendant, Gelb said, each case is different, and that the type of crime, if violence is involved and if the person is likely to flee, will all be taken into account. Alternative sentencing, such as acceptance into the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, is also a caseby-case scenario, Gelb said.

their guests, and Kip Miller, the 8-year-old son of teachers Heidi and Gary Miller, was a big help guiding people through the building and helping where ever he was needed, according to Tkatch. All three were recognized with plaques and gift certificates. Tkatch also had praise for the building construction faculty and students, who have “adopted” a family from West Pittston who sustained flood damage on the first floor of their home and did not have flood insurance. The students from the carpentry, electrical and plumbing classes will get real-world experience

while helping the family recover from the disaster, Tkatch said. In other business at the meeting, the committee added Kristen Pechulis and Dr. Bart Burne to the approved substitute list and appointed Lyle Newell as director of technology and Act 48 coordinator at a stipend of $1,000. Kathy Kimelewski was appointed as part-time cafeteria worker and Joseph Morris was named hall monitor at a salary of $10 per hour for 6.5 hours per day with no benefits. The committee also approved the purchase of textbooks for the computer network security classes.

The region’s unemployment rate is creeping back up toward 10 percent, surprising some analysts and leading one to worry a double-dip recession could be in the works. According to data, which was made public today by the Department of Labor and Industry’s Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for the local metropolitan statistical area that includes Luzerne, Lackawanna and Wyoming counties increased in August for the fourth consecutive month.

Analysis, were more optimistic that even though the local unemployment rate had risen, the season was to blame. They both said June and July figures typically increase or slow down because schools were off for the summer and there’s a spike in the employee pool as graduates and students enter the market looking for careers and summer jobs. Both said they expected rates to stabilize in August and schools come back in session. “It’s a little bit surprising,” Zellers said of the spike in unemployment. “This is a little disheartening.” Liuzzo said there’s “very little” positive in the report and he’s much more concerned than even a month ago that the recovery

Proposal by state Sen. Dominic Pileggi would change way state allocates electorial college votes.

A plan proposed by State Sen. Dominic Pileggi to change the electoral vote system in Pennsylvania has the support of Gov. Tom Corbett, but it has many detractors on both sides of the political spectrum. Pileggi, a Republican from Chester, plans to soon introduce legislation designed “to more fairly allocate Pennsylvania’s electoral college votes in presidential elections.” “There is no question that our current winnerKirsten take-all system for Page, a choosing electors does not reflect the diversity Corbett of Pennsylvania,” Pilegspokeswo- gi said in a recent reman, said lease. “This proposal more fairly align the gover- will Pennsylvania’s electoral nor supcollege votes with the of the popular ports the results vote. It will also make Pileggi individual votes across proposal. the state more important, giving voters a more significant say in presidential elections.” According to Pileggi’s office, Pennsylvania will have 20 electoral votes, one for each of the 18 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the two U.S. senators who represent the Commonwealth. Under Pileggi’s proposal, two presidential electors would be chosen based on the statewide vote. The other 18 would be chosen based on the vote for president in each congressional district. Kirsten Page, a Corbett spokeswoman, said the governor supports the Pileggi proposal “because he feels it is the fairest way to distribute Pennsylvania’s electoral votes.” But some Republicans, including Robert Gleason, chairman of the state GOP, are opposed to the plan, saying it will remove diminish the political clout that Pennsylvania has to the point that the state will no longer be considered pivotal to win in presidential elections. U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said he understands the pros and the cons of the proposal. “Those that support it believe that Pennsylvania’s electoral votes will go however Philadelphia and Pittsburgh vote and voters in other parts of the state don’t count as much,” Barletta said. “This would make everyone’s vote count. Those that oppose it believe that politically it will shift the national attention to their districts, targeting congressional seats. For me, it doesn’t matter, I’ve been targeted since the first day I was elected. It’s an interesting idea; I’m staying open minded on it.”

The taste of caring Wine event helps Make-A-Wish

By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS -- A rich buttery chardonnay served with homemade gnocchi in a hint of cream sauce was one of the creative pairings being offered Monday evening at the 2nd Annual Wine and Wishes gathering at the Metro Bar & Grill. The three-hour event was the brainchild of several area residents with a common goal to raise money for the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which helps children with lifethreatening diseases. “Every dollar raised tonight will stay

in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties to help local children,” said co-organizer Maureen Murphy of Plymouth. “We raised over $30,000 at last year’s event and we’re hoping to surpass that tonight,” she said Monday. Organizers said the wine was donated by Southern Wine Distributors of Miami, Fla., and the various food pairing stations were suggested by Metro general manager Tony Macri. “When the opportunity to host the event was presented to me, I immediately embraced the concept,” said Tom Ford, Metro’s owner. “The idea includes three of my favor-

ite things in life: wine, food and children.” According to the Make-A-Wish website, the average cost to grant a child’s “wish” is $3,500, and a trip to Disney World is still the number-one request for the children. Tickets for the local event were $50 per person and included a wide selection of wine and appetizer pairings along with live entertainment. “What could be better than coming out to support a great cause while participating in our favorite pastime,” said Bob Stoyko of Kingston Township as he raised a glass of syrah red wine. “It’s a wonderful way to spend an evening.” Donations can be made by contacting the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Son has certification, superintendent says The younger Charles Suppon was recently hired by Wyoming Valley West, which is headed by his father. By MARK GUYDISH

KINGSTON – Wyoming Valley West School District Superintendent Charles Suppon confirmed that his son has begun working as a substitute teacher in the district but said that rumors he lacked certification are wrong, and that his son has several years experience at a nearby alternative learning center. Suppon said his son has an “internship certification” provided through Lycoming College in Williamsport. He said his son had taught with an emergency certification at the Adventure Learning Center in Larksville, an

alternative learning center for students with behavioral problems too disruptive for the regular classroom. “He was director of pupil services when he left,” Suppon said. The internship certification program in Pennsylvania is designed to help people who have earned a bachelor’s degree become teachers even if the degree was not in education. For example, a person with a degree in chemistry can get an internship to teach in chemistry. The intern must still pass the PRAXIS exams, which all prospective teachers take. According to the state Department of Education website, 37 colleges and universities participate in the internship certification program. When an intern gets a teaching job, it is that college or university that applies to the state for an intern certification,

which is good for three years and cannot be renewed. The intern must continue and complete the college’s internship program in that time. Suppon said his son applied to the district to work as a substitute, and that he has been working on day-to-day basis, meaning he is called in as needed along with other substitutes. Day-today substitutes aren’t “hired” by the district, so the school board does not vote on who works as a substitute, Suppon said. He insisted his son, also named Charles, wouldn’t be substituting in the district if he wasn’t a good teacher. “I’m getting tons of phone calls from parents who say how good he is doing,” Suppon said. Mark Guydish, a Times Leader staff writer, can be reached at 829-7161.

The U.S. Small Business Administration has opened a Business Recovery Center in Wilkes-Barre. Businesses affected by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee are encouraged to apply for disaster assistance. The center opened Monday at the Stegmaier Federal Building, 7 Wilkes-Barre Blvd. The operating hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., until further notice. SBA’s representatives will issue loan applications, answer questions about the disaster loan program, explain the application process and assist business owners in completing their applications. Businesses and non-profits may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory and other business assets, said David Dickson, SBA’s Philadelphia district director. Hurricane Irene deadline to return applications for physical property damage is Oct. 31, and the deadline to return economic injury applications is June 1, 2012. Tropical Storm Lee deadline for physical property damage applications is Nov. 14, and the deadline to return economic injury applications is June 12, 2012. WILKES-BARRE

Two arrested after heroin investigation Melissa Ann Doran and James View Jr. were arrested by Drug Task Force agents. By EDWARD LEWIS

NEWPORT TWP. – After two heroin buys allegedly from Melissa Ann Doran, agents with the Luzerne County Drug Task Force searched her suspected dealer’s residence on Arch Street over the weekend. What they found Sunday night were 801 heroin packets, 15 grams of crack cocaine and numerous contraband items, including a drug debt book allegedly kept by James View Jr. The arrests of Doran, 26, of Rock Street, and View, 39, were the result of a month-long investigation into heroin sales in Hanover Township, Nanticoke and Newport Township, agents said. Doran and View were charged with two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. Doran was further charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance. Doran and View were arraigned by District Judge Joseph Halesey in Hanover Township and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail each. According to the criminal complaints: Task force drug agents arranged to buy heroin from View on Sept. 22 and again on Sunday. View allegedly told undercover agents to watch for a woman in a shopping plaza’s parking lot in Nanticoke. Authorities allege they purchased 10 heroin packets for $150 on each day from Doran, the complaint says.




After the second successful drug buy, agents served a search warrant at View’s residence Sunday night. With the assistance of a drug canine, agents found 686 heroin packets wrapped in paper, 89 heroin packets in a metal container, 15 grams of crack and a scale hidden behind couch cushions. Small plastic bags were found in a wooden box and two cell phones and “owe” sheets were discovered on a bookshelf, according to the criminal complaints. View allegedly pulled out $816 and 26 heroin packets from his pockets. Agents said they recovered the “buy money” used to purchase heroin from Doran in View’s pockets, the complaints say. Street value of the suspected heroin seized from View’s residence is approximately $16,000, agents said. Preliminary hearings are scheduled on Oct. 5 before District Judge Donald Whittaker in Nanticoke. Edward Lewis, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 829-7196.



Prison inmate charged with assaulting ex-girlfriend Police say Roydel Anthony Bell, 34, attacked the woman in her apartment. By EDWARD LEWIS



WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County inmate granted release from jail for a job less than two weeks ago was charged Monday with assaulting a former girlfriend and severely injuring her neck. Roydel Anthony Bell, 34, was arraigned by District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre

Township on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment. He remained jailed at the county prison for lack of $50,000 bail. Bell is serving a 10-to-22month sentence imposed in July on charges he attempted to electrocute another former girlfriend by cutting an extension cord he plugged in and then placed on a flooded kitchen floor inside a Barney Street home in August 2010, according to court records. Bell petitioned for work release claiming he needed to work to support his family.

Senior Judge Joseph Augello granted Bell’s request on Sept. 14, court records indicate. According to the criminal complaint: Tanequa Williams told police her ex-boyfriend, Bell, attacked her inside her apartment on Parkview Circle on Wednesday. She claimed he left after he severely beat her. Williams did not call 911 or go to a hospital hoping the pain would subside. She did, however, file a protection-from-abuse application in county court claiming Bell was arguing with her about watches he believed he

left at her apartment. Williams eventually went to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital on Saturday when the pain did not go away. Police said in the criminal complaint Williams was diagnosed with a concussion and a fractured cervical disc in her neck. Williams reported the alleged assault to police on Sunday. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Oct. 5 in WilkesBarre Central Court. A hearing for a permanent PFA order is scheduled on Thursday in county court.

Zola’s fifth request to have attorneys removed from case denied Man is charged in the 2009 stabbing death of Rosemarie Cave. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County judge on Monday denied a homicide suspect’s fifth request to have his attorneys removed from his case. Judge Joseph Cosgrove, after questioning Robert George Zola at length, denied the Mountain Top man’s request to have new attorneys assigned to his case and to represent himself. Zola, 46, is charged in the December 2009 stabbing death of 35-year-old Rosemarie Cave in her Plymouth home. In a letter written to Cosgrove dated Sept. 19, Zola

asked to represent himself because, he claimed, his attorneys were unable to “fairly (and) competently” repreZola sent him. Zola cited a meeting at the Luzerne County prison that same day where he alleges his attorney Joseph Yeager verbally attacked him and cursed at him. “I am asking the court to provide protection for me when Mr. Yeager will be in my presence,” Zola wrote. “I am asking the court again to remove my entire defense counsel and provide alternative conflict counsel.” Zola has asked numerous times in the past for his attorneys, Yeager and Ferris Webby, to be removed from his case, all of which have been denied, after Cosgrove

stated he felt the attorneys were acting appropriately. Most recently, in July, Zola withdrew a guilty plea to a thirddegree murder charge in Cave’s death and is scheduled to stand trial in October. Zola had previously claimed attorneys didn’t explain to him the different degrees of homicide. “I was pressured, coerced and forced into this guilty plea,” Zola

wrote in a previous letter to Cosgrove. According to court papers, on Dec. 14, 2009, Zola pulled Cave into her apartment and attacked her. Police said Zola stabbed Cave multiple times with a kitchen knife at her Nottingham Street, Plymouth, residence as her then-17-year-old daughter slept in a second-floor bedroom.

U.N. to take up Palestinian bid


Israel and the United States oppose the move to grant membership status. By EDITH M. LEDERER and ANITA SNOW Associated Press


It’s just another pig in the air

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. Security Council will meet Wednesday to formally consider the Palestinian request for membership in the world body, the council president said Monday. Lebanese Ambassador Nawaf Salam, who holds this month’s rotating presidency, made a brief appearance before reporters Monday and issued a brief statement in English and Arabic. He said the council had met

Monday afternoon and decided to take up a decision on referring the issue for further consideration two days hence. The Palestinian envoy to the U.N. Riyad Mansour said he was grateful to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for quickly forwarding the request to the Security Council. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday submitted the application that Palestine become the United Nations’ 194th member. “We hope it will lead to fast action in positively recognizing that Palestine be admitted,” Mansour said. He said the Palestinian leadership will be meeting Wednesday on a subsequent statement by the Quartet of Mideast peacemakers — the U.S., European Union, Russia and U.N.

Syrian websites hacked

wo online activist groups said MonT day they hacked several official Syrian websites in the latest tactic to

oppose President Bashar Assad’s authoritarian regime. Online hackers RevoluSec and Anonymous said they were behind the latest Internet attacks, which targeted the websites of several ministries and some major Syrian cities. The activists said they replaced the websites with caricatures of Assad and messages that read: “Don’t let Bashar monitor you online.” The presence of larger-than-life photos of Assad throughout Syria combined with a brutal security crackdown on dissent serve as continuous reminders for Syrians of the government’s watchful eye on anti-government activity.


Trial for Hezbollah leader

The Obama administration is considering a military trial in the United States for a Hezbollah commander now detained in Iraq, U.S. counterterrorism officials said, previewing a potential prosecution strategy that has failed before but may offer a solution to a difficult legal problem for the government. While the U.S. hasn’t made a decision, officials said a tribunal at a U.S. military base may be the best way to deal with Ali Mussa Daqduq, who was captured in Iraq in 2007. He has been linked to the Iranian government and a brazen raid in which four American soldiers were abducted and killed in the Iraqi holy city of Karbala in 2007. No military commission has been held on U.S. soil since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. PERUGIA, ITALY

Knox termed ‘she-devil’

Italian lawyers described Amanda Knox, the American student convicted of killing her British roommate, as a “she-devil” and a “witch” in an appeals court Monday while calling her alleged victim a “beautiful girl in the prime of her life.” The court also saw gruesome photos of the semi-naked, bloodied body of Meredith Kercher as two lawyers made closing arguments at the appeals trial of Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, her co-defendant and former boyfriend. Knox and Sollecito were convicted of sexually assaulting and murdering Kercher. Knox was sentenced to 26 years, Sollecito to 25. They deny wrongdoing and have appealed their convictions.


Senator raps privatizing state stores A spokesman for Gov. Corbett denies any rift between the GOP leaders.

By MARC LEVY Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s topranking state senator suggested Monday that privatizing state-controlled liquor and wine sales will be a bad deal for Pennsylvanians, and he challenged Gov. Tom Corbett and other fellow Republicans to show leadership on key issues involving transportation and the state’s booming natural gas industry. Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati, R-Jefferson, made his comments at the start of the Legislature’s

three-month fall session, and acknowledged that Corbett, House leaders and he each have priorities that do not always cleanly line up. But even while renewing an attack on support by Corbett and House Republican leaders to hand sales of wine and liquor to private licensees, he also suggested that he would go along with the effort if they help him accomplish his goals. “Now, we can all stand at the sink this fall and look at each other, or we can help each other wash our hands and get some of these things done,” Scarnati told a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon crowd in Harrisburg. “I think Pennsylvanians want some things done.” In his speech and responses during a question-and-answer session afterward,

he pressed Corbett and House GOP leaders to show leadership on his “common sense” priorities for the fall. Those include increasing funding for the state’s highways, bridges and mass transit agencies, imposing an impact fee on companies drilling into Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale formation, regarded as the nation’s largest-known natural gas reservoir, and strengthening protection of water sources from the drilling. A spokesman for Corbett said the governor will share his ideas publicly on both soon, and he downplayed any split in priorities between Corbett and Scarnati. “I don’t know that the governor’s priorities are any different than Sen. Scarnati’s,” spokesman Kevin Harley said.

Researchers fear a hunter may have killed a black bear named Hope who became famous when her birth in northeastern Minnesota was broadcast live to a worldwide audience over the Internet. Lynn Rogers, senior biologist with the North American Bear Center and its affiliated Wildlife Research Institute, said Monday that Hope was last seen Sept. 14. Rogers is waiting to hear from the Department of Natural Resources whether a hunter registered killing a bear matching the description of Hope. The center installed a camera inside Lily’s den and thousands watched over the Internet as Hope’s mother, Lily, give birth two winters ago.

TOPEKA, Kan. — Environmentalists told officials from the U.S. State Department on Monday they opposed the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, claiming it would move a “dirtier” and “environmentally devastating form of energy” from Canada through Kansas and other states to the Texas coast. Rabbi Moti Rieber, coordinator of the Kansas Interfaith Power & Light, said he and others in his coalition disagreed with the State Department’s report, which said there are unlikely to be any serious environmental problems with the proposed 1,700mile pipeline. Rieber said he

strongly opposed the pipeline, which he called a “direct threat” to the Kansas environment. “Exploring tar sands will keep us hooked on this form of oil for another 50 years,” Rieber said. “The Keystone XL pipeline represents not energy independence but a new dependence on an even dirtier environmentally devastating form of energy. “An energy policy that moves the nation toward an even dirtier form of oil and involves such devastation of God’s creation represents a profound moral failure,” he said.

Stamp of approval for those living By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID Associated Press

WASHINGTON — For the first time, living people will be eligible to be honored on U.S. postage stamps. The U.S. Postal Service announced Monday that it is ending its longstanding rule that stamps cannot feature people who are still alive and it’s asking the public to offer suggestions on who should be first. Since Jan. 1, 2007, the requirement has been that a person must have been deceased five years before appearing on a stamp. Before that, the rule was 10 years. (By tradition, though, former presidents are remembered on a stamp in the year after their deaths.). The post office announced it will consider stamps for acclaimed American musicians, sports stars, writers, artists and other nationally known figures. “This change will enable us to pay tribute to individuals for their achievements while they are still alive to enjoy the honor,” Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in a statement. Stamp Services manager Stephen Kearney said, “Engaging the public to offer their ideas is an innovative way to expand interest in stamps and the popular hobby of collecting them.” They are inviting suggestions through Facebook, Twitter, a postal service website and, of course, by mail to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, c/o Stamp Development, Room 3300, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Washington DC 20260-3501.

W-B man gets jail in 3 separate cases By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A city man charged for his role in a heroin trafficking ring, armed robbery and unrelated assault case was sentenced Monday to 6 1/2 to 13 years in state prison. Joel Foster, 22, of Coal Street, was sentenced on eight related charges stemming from the three separate cases by Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello. Foster pleaded guilty to charges of robbery, criminal conspiracy, theft and receiving stolen property in March. Three months later, Foster pleaded guilty to simple assault, theft of property, corrupt organization and criminal conspiracy. Foster was represented by at-

torneys John Donovan and John Pike. Deputy Attorney General Tim Doherty and Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews Lada prosecuted the cases. According to court papers, Foster was charged in connection with his role in a $15 million heroin trafficking ring from New York and New Jersey that investigators allege operated in the Wyoming Valley. Investigators said “Operation Bloodstain” distributed 1.5 million heroin packets on local streets since January 2007. Foster was one of 15 people netted in the ring, according to court papers. In an unrelated assault case, police charged Foster after Corey Camasso reported on Aug. 3,

2010, that he was assaulted on Meade Street. Camasso, who told police he was working as an assistant DJ at a video production, said he was asked to go outside to discuss payment with a man whom he did not know. That’s when, Camasso said, Foster began punching and kicking him and took a cell phone from his pocket. In an unrelated robbery case, in May 2010 Wilkes-Barre police said Foster and another man robbed David Niedzielski of East Stroudsburg. Niedzielski said the two men took his wallet, cell phone and car keys at gunpoint on May 13 in a North Main Street parking garage, according to arrest records.

State Sen. John Blake, D-Archbald, put the debate in perspective. “It is unfortunate that the legislature continues to distract itself with issues like the Electoral College when there are tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians searching for employment,� Blake said. “Job creation needs to be our number one priority and unfortunately, the proposed changes to the Electoral College will not put anyone back to work.� State Rep. Phyllis Mundy, DKingston, called the plan “outrageous.� “This is an unfair attempt to stack the deck against Democrats,� she said. “I could never support it.�

State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, opposes the plan. “It appears Republicans are not satisfied with comfortable majorities in Harrisburg,� he said. “They want a permanent majority beyond the approach of elections and will employ partisan tactics like gerrymandered districts, voter suppression measures, and now an assault on Pennsylvania’s right to vote for a president of the United States to achieve their ends.� State Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, said people she hears from are more concerned about issues relating to jobs, natural gas drilling, education and disaster relief. “The method for awarding electoral votes seems far down the public priority list at the moment,� she said. “The proposal is an interesting attempt to find a middle ground between those Bill O’Boyle, a Times Leader staff who want to eliminate the Electo- writer, may be reached at 829-7218.

A few months ago, he mentioned the chance that a second recession could occur and pinned odds at 10 percent. After the August report, he said it’s now a 33 percent chance. He said that for a few months, signs indicated the recession was over and “we were clearly coming out of it.â€? From September of 2010 through April 2011, the local unemployment rate dropped monthly, reaching a two-year low in April of 8.5 percent, the lowest since April 2009. But then came May’s report and an uptick to 8.7 percent. Then to 9.1percent in June and 9.3 percent in July. With the 9.8 percent rate in August, all the progress made over the past year has been erased. The August rate is the same as that registered a year ago. Dana Harris, a Keystone College business professor, said one positive that needs to be pointed out is a key contributing factor to that increase, the rise in the seasonally adjusted labor force. The local labor force grew by 1,300 in August, a sign, Harris said, that people who once gave up on finding a job are confident enough to begin searching again. She said that looking at specific industry data shows positives year-to-year. Among them are: • Professional and business ser-

In Harrisburg, state Senate Democrats unveiled their revised job creation plan, called PA Works Now, which they say would create 80,000 new jobs and leverage billions in private investment to generate jobs and economic activity. The plan includes renewed investment in job-producing programs and public works such as water and sewer projects as well as money for new business investments. “There are so many workers who are looking for jobs and even more who are worried about what is next for them in this very difficult economic recovery,� Senate Democratic leader Jay Costa said. “Our comprehensive PA Works Now plan addresses job creation and presents an opportunity to move our economy forward.� State Sen. John Yudichak, DPlymouth Township, lauded the program. “My Senate colleagues and I recognize the urgency of dealing with Pennsylvania’s economic crisis,� Yudichak said. “Tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians are without jobs and small businesses are struggling. By investing in revenue generators like a Marcellus Shale severance fee and PENNVEST programs, we can pull more dollars into Pennsylvania’s economy right now.�

Zellers said the growth in the job pool is certainly a positive, but he was hoping to also see growth in the number of employed persons. Seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs decreased 600 from July to 254,000, but that was 2,100 more than last August. The unemployment rates were lower at the state and national levels in August, but neither saw drops from July. Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate increased four-tenths of a point to 8.2 percent, while the U.S. rate remained unchanged at 9.1 percent.

County Community Development Director Andrew Reilly said county officials required the coverage so CityVest wasn’t held financially responsible for any injuries or other liabilities related to the structure. The county may have no recourse to enforce the insurance requirement because CityVest has spent the county funding and has no assets, Reilly said. The county could attempt to take possession of the property if it’s not insured, but commissioners have already rejected CityV-



est’s request for the county to assume ownership, Reilly said. The county can’t take responsibility for a deteriorating property, Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla said Monday. “We don’t want to take ownership of the building,� she said. Wilkes-Barre issued a condemnation notice on the property last week, ordering CityVest to begin tearing down the North River Street structure within 30 days. The city ordered the demolition after two city-hired engineers concluded the structure was unsafe.

County commissioners have said they would consider using some money from a business loan fund to help pay for demolition, but only if the city pays some of the expense. Commissioners argued that city help is needed because the county already loaned $6 million to try to preserve and market the Sterling. That money is gone and was largely spent to make the parcel larger and demolish a 14story high-rise and hotel connector building. The city has not yet informed the county if any city funding will

be allocated for demolition, Petrilla said. “Someone has to sit down and talk about this because obviously we’re in a problem situation now, with the insurance lapsing and it not looking like CityVest is going to get coverage,� Petrilla said. She said she may set up a meeting with representatives from the county, city and CityVest. “We have to quit pointing fingers and do what has to be done,� she said.

Milton Wildoner ilton “Mick” Wildoner, 57, of M Main Road, Hunlock Creek, passed away in his home on Friday,

Born in Wilkes-Barre, he was a long-time resident of Arlington Heights, Ill. Joe was a highly respected and successful salesman for the Tappan Company for over 30 years, prior to retiring to the Cochella Valley 14 years ago. A longtime member of the Desert Princess Country Club, Joe enjoyed many rounds of golf with the country club regulars, and enjoyed swapping stories even more. The love of his devoted wife and family defined Joe, and he made sure his home was always filled with laughter and music. It would not be unusual to hear his own music stylings of classic Frank Sinatra or even an opera song, complete with madeup lyrics in made-up Italian, echoing throughout the neighborhood. Joe is survived by his wife of 59 years, Diana; son and daughter-inlaw, Daniel and Linda Marich; daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Michael Block; granddaughter, Emily Block; and his youngest son, Joseph Jr. He is also survived by his sister, Anne Shard, Larksville; and brother, William Marich, Aiken,

Dream dimming for young adults


BIG PART of the American Dream – maybe the most important – is the expectation that your kids will do better than you did. A large number of Baby Boomers have lived that dream, earning more than their parents ever did due to affordable education and good job opportunities. But Census figures released Thursday suggest that it’s not going to work that way for many of today’s young adults, with serious ramifications for them and for the rest of country. Young people age 18 to 29 are unemployed in record numbers. Compared to 2000, when 67.3 percent of 16- to 29-yearolds were working, only about 55 percent of that age group had jobs last year. At the same

time, many college graduates who are bringing home paychecks are not working at the jobs they studied for but instead are working in restaurants or retail. Less-educated young adults are even worse off. At the same time, older workers are hanging around longer, with more seniors in the workforce than ever. So if it weren’t already obvious, this is no time to raise the Social Security retirement age beyond 66. It also is obvious that future deficits, while important, pose nowhere near the danger to the younger generation as does current unemployment. Rather than slashing spending, government should be spending more to save and create jobs. Philadelphia Daily News

Conahan’s sentencing pulled back curtain on scheme IF THERE was any doubt that Mike “Cocky” Conahan was the brains behind Luzerne County’s juvenile court scandal, they dissolved faster than Alka-Seltzer at Conahan’s sentencing in federal

court Friday. Mark “Shameless” Ciavarella might have garnered more publicity thanks to his decision to go to trial rather than strike a plea bargain. But this atrocity had Cocky’s fingerprints all over it, like a kindergarten water color on “use your hands” day. Millions of dollars paid to the two crooked county judges by the builder and a co-owner of for-profit juvenile detention centers got washed through Conahan’s businesses. Comments to a wired witness had Cocky concocting cover-up stories that could blanket the county. It was Conahan who – as president judge – effectively closed the Luzerne County-owned juvenile jail by refusing to send kids there. It was Cocky who signed a secret guarantee that the private facility would get a minimum annual amount from the county. Conahan’s ability to orchestrate could put Leonard Bernstein to shame. Yet he got off with 10 years less jail time. Ciavarella gets to play the full gamut of games available in the appeal lottery, something Conahan forfeited – first by signing a


COMMENTARY plea bargain with a “go directly to jail” directive, and second by saying right before sentencing that (a) “I’m corrupt,” and (b) “I deserve these consequences.” Picture the testimony at his appeal: “But you said, ‘I’m corrupt.’ ” “I should have said I was corrupt. I’m better now.” “You said, ‘I deserve these consequences’?” “I meant ‘those,’ as in those consequences I already had endured.” If Ciavarella and Conahan were joined at the hip on this cabal, it was Conahan who fused their pelvises. Yet “the boss” gets the lighter sentence. Why? Because Cocky was smart enough to shed every shred of public arrogance, and Shameless simply couldn’t. It’s a tale of two pities. After a perfunctory, “Don’t send me to jail!” apology, Ciavarella stayed defiant. It was never “kids for cash,” he insisted. “And someone better start getting that message,” his attorney Al Flora added. By contrast, Conahan’s lawyer Phil Gelso said: “Whatever label you put on this, there was a lot of damage that came from this, and

Obama does about-face on raising income taxes



when you heard him today, he was sincere. He accepted responsibility for that.” During the sentencing Friday in Scranton, Gelso painted the image of a man repressed, abused and confused. Conahan had readily agreed to psychological evaluation, a process that revealed a litany of travails. He had been “mercilessly beaten” by his father for failing to stoke a coal furnace. He had been “taught the ends justified the means.” He had come to use “repression and alcohol as a defensive mechanism to keep those insecurities in check and help him ignore the consequences of his actions.” Cocky was a victim of “a perfect storm that allowed this criminal conduct to ensue.” He didn’t mastermind a wretched plot, he just “lost his way.” Gelso said Conahan “saw grays.” The problem is, he saw grays where none existed. Taking money from a for-profit detention center where you make sure kids are sent? That’s as black-and-white as it gets. This despicable duo didn’t “see gray,” they saw green. They let money lust trump ethics. If Conahan got the lesser punishment despite playing the bigger role, it’s only because he was more willing to publicly admit his moral blindness. Cold comfort to the kids he used.

resident Obama’s assertion that “millionaires and billionaires” are paying less in taxes than their secretaries is completely false. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the 10 percent of households with the highest income not only pay more than half of all federal taxes, they also pay more than 70 percent of all federal income taxes. This, of course, begs the question, “If his deficit plan is so good, why does the president feel the need to use deceitful examples to bamboozle the American people?” I believe his use of false examples and all this talk about everyone paying their “fair share” is nothing more than class warfare. In this instance, he appears to be willing to try to manipulate people into the worst emotions so they don’t notice that he is attempting to raise taxes by $1.5 trillion in the middle of a recession.

Writer: Anti-drilling view harmful to Pennsylvania


o wonder Northeastern Pennsylvania has high unemployment, when you have people such as state Rep. Phyllis Mundy, those in the “anti-Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition” and Josh Fox, maker of the movie “Gas Land.” I never thought a group of such demor-


alizing, spirit-killing people existed. There are about 1,700 homes in Luzerne County up for sheriff’s sale, whose owners would be glad to be getting a gas sale royalty check, and there are hundreds of out-of-work men and women who would be happy to be on a gas company payroll. There is a difference between living and existing, but those above people just don’t get it. Rep. Mundy was elected to another term. If the representative had her way, there would be no gas drilling in Pennsylvania! Fred. F. Murray Jackson Township

Advice offered on flea treatments for dogs


ever give your dog a flea bath or any flea treatment, including flea collars, after treating it with flea medication. It can be fatal. If you accidentally do over-treat, immediately bathe the dog with Dawn dish detergent. Talk to your vet; he or she can confirm it. Dawn dish detergent also kills fleas but does not prevent them.

CONAHAN Continued from Page 1A

U.S District Judge Edwin Kosik agreed to recommend the facility, but Conahan does not qualify to go there because minimum-security prisons cannot accept a prisoner whose sentence exceeds 10 years, according to Chris Burke, a spokesman for the bureau. Conahan’s 17 ½-year sentence means he will likely be sent to a low- or medium-security prison, Burke said. The BOP can make exceptions, but that’s a rarity, he said. Burke said a judge’s recommendation is among the things considered when deciding whether to lower a prisoner’s security classification, which is known as “flexing down.” Even if Conahan ultimately is placed in a minimum-security prison, it’s not likely that will hap-

“It could be anything,” he said. “Sometimes it could be off-white, itcouldbegreen,itcouldbeblack mold;therecouldbemanyforms. It could be camouflaged.” Odor is apparent An odor generally accompanies mold, he added. “It could have any multitude of smells,” Hammerman said. “It could smell like mildew, like rotten feet; it could be pungent. There’s different kinds of mold obviously, but it should have a smell.” Hammerman said mold exposure can lead to both acute and chronic illness. It can trigger allergy-like symptoms, including sneezing, coughing, watery eyes and occasionally a rash. In those with pre-existing lung ailments, including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma, mold exposure can lead to a higher risk of developing an infection or asthma-like symptoms. Others also are at risk, including infants and children, senior citizens, people with compromised immune systems because of HIV infection, liver disease, or chemotherapy and pregnant women. “In hospitals, we don’t have a lot of carpet,” Hammerman explained, “and when we pull up carpet we don’t allow patients in those regions because we have patients with immuno-suppressed conditions. Carpets pick up a lot of mold, and those pa-

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – Two women were found bound and gagged in a Welles Street apartment on Monday, and city police are searching for a suspect. Police responded at about 1:30 p.m. to a report of two women found bound with duct tape at 169 S. Welles St., which is part of Boulevard Townhomes. The women, Wendi Konopke, 22, and Tammy Lutecki, 44, both of Wilkes-Barre, told police a man named “Spider” threatened them with a hand-





pen initially as the bureau typically likes to see how a prisoner acts while incarcerated before agreeing to lower the prisoner’s security status, he said. The Forbes article that ranked the prisons was based in part on evaluations conducted by attorney Allan Ellis, an expert in federal prisons who authored the Federal Prison Guidebook. Ellis said he also thinks it’s highly unlikely Conahan will be sent to a minimum-security prison unless there is a compelling reason to do so. That’s typically done only in cases where there is concern for an inmate’s safety, he said. He noted the case of Bernie Madoff, who was sentenced to 150 years for orchestrating one of the biggest investment frauds in the nation’s history. He was placed at a minimum-security prison, Ellis believes, due to concerns for his safety if he was sent to a maximum-security institution.

That same concern can play against the interests of an inmate, as it appears to have done in the case of Conahan’s former co-defendant, Mark Ciavarella, Ellis said. Ciavarella was sentenced in August to 28 years in prison. The BOP usually tries to place a prisoner within 500 miles of the prisoner’s home, but Ciavarella was placed at a medium-security facility in Pekin, Ill., which is more than 800 miles from WilkesBarre. Ciavarella’s attorney, Al Flora, said the distance has made it very tough for Ciavarella’s family to visit him. They had hoped he would serve the sentence closer to home. Ellis said he suspects Ciavarella was placed that far away because the BOP had concerns he might meet up with someone he had sentenced as a judge should he be sent to a closer prison. “There are people who are at risk to be too close to home, like

former law enforcement officers. You wouldn’t want to take a cop and place him in a local federal prison where he may come up to people he busted. The same thing goes for a judge,” Ellis said. “If you are in the general population and get knifed or beat up, they are liable.” Life for inmates at medium-security facilities is far more difficult and dangerous than for those at minimum- or low-security institutions, Ellis said. Minimum- and low-security prisons house only non-violent offenders and afford inmates far more liberties, whereas mediumsecurity facilities include violent offenders, he said. “At a low-security prison, you get punched. At a medium-security prison, you get knifed,” Ellis said. Ciavarella could seek to lower his security classification, but BOP guidelines say he can’t do that until he has served at least18 months, Ellis said.

tientscouldbeatexcessriskfrom mold inhalation.” Symptoms that may not appear immediately can develop with prolonged exposure if mold is not properly eliminated. In rare cases, exposure can lead to more serious conditions such as hypersensitivity pnemonitis, which causes inflammation and later scarring of the lungs. “You could perceive a situation where years down the line, if you had a home that had water in the basement that was not properly cleaned up, and years later somebody goes down and starts making renovations, then I could perceive of them having some problems then,” Hammerman said.

The National Flood Insurance Program also does not cover damage caused by moisture, mildew or mold that could have been avoided by the property owner. Properly disinfecting and drying a home after flooding can be a tricky process, said Bill Wright, CEO and president of TruPro Remediation Services Group. Wright’s company specializes in mold remediation and works on mold-related issues with about 1,000 home and business owners a year, he said. He said there are five steps to mold remediation. Wet components of a home should be removed and dried completely. Porous materials that have absorbed water, including upholstered furniture, carpets and padding, drywall and porous wood surfaces must be thrown away. Common trouble spots homeowners often miss when cleaning mold include the space behind baseboards and molding and in the box-sill joints where a home’s foundation meets its frame. Silt deposited by flooding can linger in those joints providing a breeding ground for mold and bacteria, Wright said. Newer homes are also more difficult to dry because they are often constructed using more porous materials like sheet rock, particle board and yellow pine.

water-soaked furniture in their home when a FEMA inspector shows up; it does help that the person does take pictures,” Brezany said, recommending homeowners take pictures of damaged items before disposal. Next, remaining non-porous materials should be scrubbed with a cleaner capable of killing mold. Ten parts bleach to one part water works well, Wright said. Ammonia may also be used, but should never be mixed with bleach. “You want to make sure that has at least 15 minutes of contact,” Wright said. “You can spray it or you can take a rag or sponge and scrub, it depends on how deep the contamination is, but if you’re just decontaminating you can just treat it like spring cleaning.” Hammerman also suggested wearing a mask and keeping the area well ventilated when cleaning with bleach, as exposure to bleach can cause a condition called reactive airways dysfunction syndrome, which can cause long-lasting respiratory problems. Equally important as disinfecting surfaces is allowing them to dry completely. Fans and sand can be helpful as drying agents. Lastly, salvaged wooden materials can be sealed with an antimicrobial sealant like mold resistant paint, Wright said. The paint creates an air barrier and resists mold, he said. For large-scale saturation like first-floor flooding, Wright recommended hiring professionals to assist in clean-up if you can afford it.

Protective clothing needed When cleaning mold, the federal Environmental Protection Agency recommends wearing rubber gloves, goggles and an N-95 respirator mask, which can be purchased for about $20 at most hardware stores. Hammermansaidordinarysurgicalmasks do not effectively filter mold because their pores are too large. Responsibility for effectively cleaning up and drying out a home to combat mold lies with the homeowner. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, and state Department of Health and state Department of Environmental Protection do not test for mold or provide remediation services. “What FEMA has to offer is advice; we don’t have any specific funding for mold concerns,” said FEMA spokesman Eugene Brezany, explaining that mold is not a direct consequence of flooding. gun, restrained them with duct tape and placed them in separate closets. The women were found when maintenance workers entered the residence to check plumbing. They were taken by ambulance to a hospital to be checked out, police said.

at Wyoming are investigating an alleged assault and robbery inside Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino early Monday morning. State police said Kelly Miller, of Loyalville Road, Dallas, told them police she met a friend at the center bar inside the casino at about 12:10 a.m. when her boyfriend, Eric Bryce Smith, 39, showed up and began arguing with her. State police said Smith bit Miller on the face and removed a cell phone from her hand. The alleged assault and robbery was recorded by a surveillance camera, state police said.



This home on Estuary Trail in Delray Beach, Fla., was purchased by former Judge Michael Conahan’s wife, Barbara.

Conahan wife owns costly Florida home

The plea agreement Michael The purchase does not violate Conahan signed states he must any agreements with the pay restitution, but it does not government, lawyer says. preclude him or his spouse from By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

As former Luzerne County Judge Michael Conahan begins serving his prison sentence on a corruption charge, his wife, Barbara, has taken up residence in a spacious Florida townhome she purchased in June for $643,000. Barbara Conahan purchased the home, located in The Estuary, a gated community in Delray Beach that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, on June 7, according to a deed filed with the West Palm Beach Recorder of Deeds office. Michael Conahan had been living at the home with her since August, according to an affidavit he filed with the Florida court. The deed shows the home, located at 1447 Estuary Trail, was purchased solely by Barbara Conahan. There is no record of a mortgage on the property, indicating it was either purchased with cash or financed in a way that did not require the home be utilized as security for the loan. Michael Conahan was sentenced on Friday to 17 ½ years in federal prison and ordered to pay $874,167 in restitution and a $20,000 fine for his guilty plea to one count of racketeering conspiracy. Conahan admitted he accepted millions of dollars from the builder and owner of two juvenile detention centers the county utilized as a reward for actions he and former Judge Mark Ciavarella took that benefited the centers. Conahan also admitted he then took action to disguise the source of the money to make it appear as though it was legitimately earned, including falsely portraying it as rental income at a condominium his and Ciavarella’s wives owned in Jupiter, Fla. The U.S. Attorney’s Office had previously expressed concern that Conahan and Ciavarella would seek to divest themselves of assets to protect them from any forfeiture or restitution order that would be issued. There are no court documents filed in the case that would preclude Barbara Conahan from making any purchases, however.

incurring new debt prior to his sentencing or limit any purchases they could make. Prosecutors never filed any court papers that sought to freeze his assets. U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith declined to comment Monday on whether his office had any authority to try to prevent Barbara Conahan from making the purchase. Arthur Donato, one of Conahan’s attorneys, said the purchase did not violate any agreement Conahan had with the government. “We have been cooperating with the government,” Donato said. “There wasn’t anything we did they weren’t aware of. We certainly would not violate any implicit or explicit agreement regarding assets.” Conahan was taken to the federal detention center in Philadelphia on Friday pending transfer to another facility at which he will serve his sentence. He has requested to be placed at the minimum-security Federal Detention Camp in Pensacola, Fla., which is about a 10-hour drive from Delray Beach. The Department of Corrections is not obligated to honor that request, however. The Delray Beach townhome has three bedrooms and three baths spread over 3,317 square feet, according to a real estate listing of the property, which was listed by Re/Max Services of Boca Raton, Fla. The listing said the three-floor unit has “magnificent” views of the Intracoastal Waterway and includes a built-in bar and entertainment center. The townhome is about an hour’s drive from the condominium in Jupiter, Fla., that authorities say was used by Michael Conahan and Ciavarella to launder money they illegally earned. Barbara Conahan had been living at the Jupiter condominium since at least April of this year, according to an affidavit she filed with the Palm Beach County Recorder of Deeds office. The condo is now in foreclosure, according to Florida court records. First National Community Bank in Dunmore, which holds an $848,000 mortgage, filed for foreclosure on June 28, the records show.

It’s another big score for McGloin

Pittston Area star who walked away with a PIAA Championship last year. Now he can say he beat the best. Medico carded a 1-over 71 at Fox Hill Country Club on Monday to defeat Matthews and the 86 other Wyoming Valley Conference golfers participating in the Pre-District Tournament. It’s the first time Matthews (8-over 78) didn’t finish first in a WVC tournament since the same event in 2008 when he was runner-up. And it’s his first loss in a high school tournament since the

regional event last year. “I’ve come very close in the past (to beating Matthews) and had a couple heart-breaking losses,” Medico said. “To come out and get a win is really big for me. It feels good. I have a lot of momentum going into districts.” Medico played par golf all day ringing up 16 pars, a double bogey and a birdie. He was the only golfer close to par as he won by three shots over Dallas’ John Dougherty – who was the next closest. Wyoming Valley West’s Evan Pirillo was

third with 76, while Medico’s teammate Chase Makowski, Wyoming Area’s Nick Rydzewski and Meyers’ Tony Morrash rounded out the top six with 77s. Only 14 players carded scores under 80. “I thought today the greens were tough but we set it up everywhere so I was very shocked there weren’t many low scores,” Medico added. Of the 88 participants, 34 advanced to the District 2 Championships on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at Elmhurst Country Club. Two girls also moved on with


Trying to fit in

Scranton native becomes first Lion to share Big Ten offensive player of week honors since Daryll Clark left. By DEREK LEVARSE

He started off on the bench for the fourth straight game and he played for just four drives on Saturday. It was enough for Matt McGloin to be named Big Ten CoOffensive Player of UP NEXT the Week on MonPenn State day. at McGloin led Penn Indiana State with his best Noon Saturday performance of the TV: ESPNU season, finishing 14of-17 for 220 yards and three touchdowns against Eastern Michigan to win the honor. He split the award with Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson. It was the first time a Penn State player won at least a share of the title since Daryll Clark in November 2009. “I’m just feeling more comfortable out on the field week by week,” McGloin said after Saturday’s 34-6 win over the Eagles. “I’m not sure what it is – I think it’s just playing more, practicing more, just getting more comfortable and watching more film, knowing what defenses are doing.” The junior from Scranton came within inches of leading the Nittany Lions to touchdowns on all four of his drives. McGloin threw a 27-yard touchdown to fullback Joe Suhey on his first drive – the Lions’ first touchdown pass all season and first since the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1. He followed it up with a pair of scores to senior wideout Derek Moye from 5 and 20 yards out on his third and fourth drives, respectively. See MCGLOIN, Page 3B

DiDiomete fighting for spot with Pens INSIDE: Flyers to host Winter Classic, 5B


WILKES-BARRE – Devin DiDiomete hopes his new Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguin teammates don’t have any hard feelings. For any of the punches he threw or less-than-complimentary comments he directed at them over the last three years. It was nothing personal. On the ice, that’s just the way DiDiomete is. Fresh off his third AHL season last year – one in which he led the league with 31 fighting majors and finished third with 303 penalty minutes, DiDiomete was one of several new faces

Connecticut Whale. Although the Penguins only faced DiDiomete’s former team four times in the last three years, he is a familiar face. Last season he fought Penguins forward Geoff Walker when Connecticut came to Wilkes-Barre, and in juniors DiDiomete had a memorable run-in with Robert Bortuzzo. That occurred in the 2008 playoffs when DiDiomete, who was playing in the last game of his Ontario Hockey League career, was skating on a line with Steven Stamkos. It went like this:

when the Penguins opened training camp Monday at Coal Street. He’s hoping his agitating ways will make a permanent mark this season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. “It would be a good fit for me here,” DiDiomete said. “Even after the first practice I can tell it’s a high ethic, intensity team. It starts in Pittsburgh and funnels down – this is a good, hard working team with a good mix of toughness and skill.” DiDiomete, 23, spent the last three seasons with the Hartford Wolf Pack/ See PENGUINS, Page 5B

QB Romo rallies Cowboys for victory over Redskins The Associated Press


ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo’s ribs held up just fine. So did Dan Bailey’s leg. Romo persevered through pain to lead enough deep drives to set up Bailey for six field goals, including a 40-yarder with 1:57 left to give the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Dallas’ Anthony Spencer chopped the ball from Washington’s Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left, and line-


backer Sean Lee recovered it, setting off a COWBOYS celebration inside Cowboys Stadium. Dallas coach Jason Garrett dropped to a REDSKINS knee and pumped his fist wildly at being 2-1 — guaranteeing no repeat of last year’s miserable 1-7 start. The Cowboys are even tied for first place in the NFC East, along with Washington (2-1), which was seeking its first 3-0 start since 2005.



Beatings and batterings dogging Vick


f NFL officials can’t see Michael Vick takes more physical abuse than most quarterbacks in the league, they’re turning a blind eye. And if they’re blinded by outrage over Vick’s dogfighting days, they’re working the wrong job. Because officials are supposed to remain impartial in their quest to ensure fair play, penalizing teams for committing infractions that violate the league’s rules. It seems the guy being most punished is Vick. The dynamic quarterback went down with a badly-bruised non-throwing hand at the hands of the New York Giants on Sunday, a week after he suffered a concussion while playing against the Atlanta Falcons. One hit knocked him woozy. The next made his status for this week’s game against San Francisco unclear. Both came during games in which Vick was getting hammered after he threw the ball. And a flag wasn’t thrown to protect him in either of them. Aren’t the NFL’s revamped rules designed to not only over-protect but pamper quarterbacks? So it’s easy to see why Vick believes he’s being bullied, given the punishment he’s been taking. “Look at the replays,” Vick implored. “I’m on the ground every time. Every time I throw the ball, I get a hit (to the body), or get hit in the head. I’m not blaming the referees. I’m just saying everybody out on the field has to do their job.” He’s not blaming the officials. He’s accusing them. “I don’t know why I don’t get the15yard flag like everybody else does,” Vick said. He’s got a pretty good point. When was the last time Tom Brady or Peyton Manning got battered around like this without repercussion? You don’t have to be among the NFL’s elite quarterbacks to afford protection by the rules. And you don’t need an extended video review to see the ball was long released from Vick’s left hand when his right one was battered by a hit from Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty. “It was a late hit. It should have been called,” Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said. When it wasn’t, Vick had every right to call out the officials. He initially was told his badly-swollen hand was broken, before an MRI revealed it was merely bruised. “I felt like I got hit late, there was no flag, I broke my hand,” Vick said. The Eagles have been complaining about Vick taken late hits that have gone unpunished since last season. Vick said he brought his case to officials during their regular meetings with NFL teams in training camp. Those pleas have been ignored, by rampaging defenses and officials alike. “If the ref isn’t giving them a warning, they’re not going to stop,” Vick said. “You could see it on replays, I see it when I watch the film. Everybody saw the game, I’m on the ground constantly, all the time.” It’s time for the league to stop defenses from declaring open season on Vick. Some people won’t forgive him for his sins of the past – running a dog fighting operation that got him jail time and a suspension from the NFL. They insist the punishment he takes now isn’t close to what he deserves for torturing animals. Fair enough. But it’s unjust to the Eagles when their star quarterback has to leave games seeing stars after taking unnecessary hits. He’s fair game when he bursts out of the pocket. When he stays in it, it’s time to call off the dogs.

Rays forge a tie in wild-card race The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Rays moved into a tie with the Boston Red Sox for the wild-card lead, beating the New York Yankees 5-2 on Monday night behind another strong performance by James Shields. Shields came within one out of his 12th complete game, yielding six hits. Kyle Farnsworth finished for his 24th save, closing it out moments before the Red Sox lost 6-3 at Baltimore. The Rays and Red Sox each have two games left. B.J. Upton drove in two runs with a third-inning double off Hector Noesi. Kelly Shoppach homered for the second straight day for the Rays, who’ve won three straight and are 15-8 since Sept. 2, when they trailed Boston by nine games. Johnny Damon’s thirdinning RBI single moved him into a tie with Lou Gehrig for 57th on the career hits list with 2,721. Orioles 6, Red Sox 3

BALTIMORE — The Boston Red Sox found another way to lose, this time on a broken-bat single and an inside-the-park homer, and their defeat against the Baltimore Orioles dropped them into a tie in the AL wildcard race. Boston’s 17th loss in 22 games enabled Tampa Bay to finally pull even in the duel for the league’s final playoff spot. The Rays, who beat the New York Yankees 5-2, trailed by nine games after play on Sept. 3. With the score 2-all in the sixth inning, Boston starter Josh Beckett (13-7) allowed four runs in an uprising that began with Vladimir Guerrero becoming the career hits leader among Dominican-born

Sox let Guillen out of contract CHICAGO — White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has been released from his contract to pursue other opportunities. The team announced the move following its 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night. Guillen met with owner Jerry Reinsdorf for about 30 minutes earlier in the day. Guillen said he told Reinsdorf he would like to return, but only for a contract extension for more money. He had one year remaining on his current deal. The White Sox said in a release they retain the right to compensation should Guillen accept a managerial position with another major league team for the 2012 season.

players. White Sox 4, Blue Jays 3

CHICAGO — In what turned out to be manager Ozzie Guillen’s last game with the White Sox, Tyler Flowers hit a threerun homer, rookie Dylan Axelrod threw six shutout innings and Chicago beat the Toronto Blue Jays. Tigers 14, Indians 0

DETROIT — Doug Fister pitched eight strong innings and Alex Avila drove in three runs to help the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians. MINNEAPOLIS — Melky Cabrera became the first Kansas City player in 11 years to get 200 hits and Mike Moustakas hit the go-ahead home run in a four-run sixth inning as the Royals topped the Minnesota Twins.

Braves’ slide continues with loss to Phillies ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves took another wrenching loss in their September swoon, squandering an early two-run lead against Cliff Lee as the playoff-bound Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 4-2 victory Monday night. Lee (17-8) pitched six strong innings, Jimmy Rollins homered and Raul Ibanez drove in two runs, leading the NL East champions past their division rivals to start the final series of the regular season. The Braves, who came into the night with a once-comfortable lead in the wild-card race shaved to a single game over St. Louis, lost their third in a row and seventh in the last 10 games. Their September record dropped to 9-16, sending a margin that had been 81⁄2 games three weeks ago to the verge of being totally wiped out. Astros 5, Cardinals 4

HOUSTON — St. Louis missed out on a chance to join Atlanta atop the wild-card standings when Brian Bogusevic scored on Angel Sanchez’s bunt in the 10th inning, giving the Houston Astros a victory over the Cardinals. Slumping Atlanta lost to

The second drive ended with what initially looked like a 5-yard touchdown toss to fullback Michael Zordich, but an Eagles linebacker knocked the ball out at the 1, sending it through the end zone for a touchback.








Philadelphia, but the Cardinals weren’t able to take advantage of the opening. St. Louis rallied from three runs down to force extra innings, but Bogusevic doubled off Octavio Dotel (3-3) in the 10th and advanced on Jason Bourgeois’ bunt. Sanchez then dropped a bunt in front of the plate, and Bogusevic charged home as Dotel mishandled his attempt to flip the ball to catcher Yadier Molina with his glove. Astros closer Mark Melancon (8-4) pitched two scoreless innings. Reds 6, Mets 5

NEW YORK — Chris Heisey hit a go-ahead, three-run homer just moments after making a diving catch and the Cincinnati Reds held off the New York Mets in the opener of their season-ending series. Jose Reyes had three hits for the Mets to take over the NL batting lead, but his baserunning blunder in the eighth inning cost them a chance to tie the game. Nationals 6, Marlins 4

MIAMI — Michael Morse hit a three-run homer with two out in the ninth inning, and the Washington Nationals rallied to beat the Florida Marlins.

1923 — Lou Gehrig hit his first homer in the majors off Bill Piercy of the Boston Red Sox. On the same date 15 years later, he hit his 493rd and last off Dutch Leonard of the Senators. 1930 — Hack Wilson hit two home runs for the Chicago Cubs, giving him an NL-record 56 for the season. 1935 — The Chicago Cubs clinched the NL pennant and won their 21st consecutive game with a doubleheader sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs won the pennant with the opening-game victory. 1936 — Hall of Fame manager Walter Alston played in his only major league game as a late-inning substitute at first base for Johnny Mize of the St. Louis Cardinals. He made one error in two chances and struck out in his only at-bat. 1940 — Rookie Floyd Giebell pitched the Detroit Tigers to a pennant-clinching 2-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians. It was Giebell’s second and last major league win. 1973 — Nolan Ryan struck out 16, including No. 383 of the season for a modern major league record, in

the California Angels’ 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins in 11 innings. 1996 — San Francisco’s Barry Bonds became the second player to hit 40 homers and steal 40 bases in a season. Jose Canseco was the other. Bonds, who had 42 homers, stole his 40th base in a 9-3 win over Colorado. 1998 — Mark McGwire gave baseball a new magic number, hitting two homers to reach No. 70 in the St. Louis Cardinals’ season finale against Montreal. It was McGwire’s fifth homer in the season-ending, three-game series.

Redeemer makes racket, ends Sem’s streak The Times Leader staff

KINGSTON – Holy Redeemer girls tennis hasn’t been around very long. But the team is starting to make a name for itself. The Royals took a big step on being better than average on Monday. Holy Redeemer, in just its fifth year playing tennis, defeated Wyoming Seminary 3-2 to hand the Blue Knights their first Wyoming Valley Conference loss in nearly three years, a 37-match span. The last time the Blue Knights were beaten was by Berwick in 2008. “I told the girls that when you talk about dynasties in the Wyoming Valley Conference you talk about Crestwood and Wyoming Seminary field hockey, Bishop Hoban swimming and Wyoming Seminary tennis,”

Royals coach Paul Gerrity said. “To get a win like this in our fifth year is quite an accomplishment.” The match was tied 2-2 with No. 1 doubles still on the court. The victory was clinched when Redeemer’s Allison Muth hit a forehand volley for the winner. Muth was teamed with Shaina Dougherty for the 6-7 (8-10), 6-1, 6-4 victory over Alaina Schukraft and Jane Henry. The Royals (7-1) also got victories at No. 2 singles from Nellie Chmil – who improved to 8-0 this season – and No. 2 doubles from Beth Chmil and Trish Harenza. Wyoming Seminary’s two wins were at No. 1 singles by Nathalie Joanlanne and Emma Spath at No. 2 singles. Next on the schedule for the Blue Knights (7-1) is Crestwood

(8-1) today. The Royals have a big match on the schedule with Dallas (5-1). All four teams are expected to participate in the District 2 Team Championships Oct. 14 and 18. Before that, the district’s individual championships will be held on Oct. 6-7 followed by the doubles event on Oct. 11-12.

Landis’ two goals lead Alvernia past Colonels The Times Leader staff

EDWARDSVILLE – After a scoreless first half of play, visiting Alvernia University used two Sam Landis goals to post a tough 3-1 non-conference victory over Wilkes University Monday night in field hockey action at Schmidt Stadium. With the loss Wilkes slipped to 1-5 overall, while Alvernia improved to 6-2 on the year. Wilkes will return to Freedom Conference play Friday when it travels to Madison, N.J. for a matchup with FDU-Florham at 6:00 p.m. WOMEN’S SOCCER King’s 4, SUNY Old Westbury 0 Samantha Beadle scored a pair of first-half goals to power the King’s College women’s

Beadle gave King’s a 1-0 lead at 36:38 by placing a direct kick into the upper right corner of the net. Just 3:38 later, Beadle made good on another direct kick, this time just inside the left post, giving King’s a 2-0 lead with 34:00 remaining in the opening half.. Misericordia 2, Lebanon Valley 1 Erin McGreal and Alyssa Mocion both scored goals and Sam Helmstetter added a pair of assists to lead the Misericordia University to a win over Lebanon Valley at Mangelsdorf Field.

League decides to put it in the Bank By JOHN MEDEIROS

PHILADELPHIA – It was the worst-kept secret in sports but Monday, it became official. The Winter Classic will be played at Citizens Bank Park. The NHL announced that its signature regular season game will feature the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 2 at the home of the fivetime NL East champion Philadelphia Phillies. “I look forward to standing in a ballpark like this in the summer or fall,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said. “We play in snow, we play in rain, we play in extreme cold. The NHL Winter Classic is the ultimate in reality TV.” This was one of the latest formal announcements of a Winter Classic game, coming at the completion of the Phillies home schedule. Flyers season ticket holders had received official notice earlier this month when they received their ticket packages, but that paled in comparison to the show put on for a national TV audience. A handful of players from each team were on the dais with team, league and other dignitaries. The players took part in a trick-shot contest after the completion of the day’s events. This will be the fifth Winter Classic, and the second to include the Flyers. Philadelphia played in the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway Park against the Boston Bruins, who won 2-1 in overtime. The Flyers have 11 players remaining from the squad that played at Fenway. The Rangers

have not played in a Winter Classic, but took part in the NHL’s first outdoor preseason game in Las Vegas in 1991. One promise from Bettman received expedient followthrough. “There will be a variety of ancilliary events,” Bettman said. “We will, in the next two weeks, be announcing them.” Just a few minutes later, Comcast-Spectacor president and COO Peter Luukko announced a number of additional events that will be held in conjunction with the NHL game on Jan. 2. There will be an alumni game Dec. 31 at 1 p.m., and the AHL’s Adirondak Phantoms, the Flyers top affiliate, will host the Hershey Bears on Jan. 6 at 7 p.m. “We’re going to make it a festival,” Luukko said. “We’re looking at bringing some high school hockey here, and some collegiate hockey here. And there will be some public skating as well.” Ticket information has not yet been announced, though it is expected that Flyers season ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets to the game. Other hockey fans will likely be asked to enter lotteries for the opportunity to purchase tickets.

Wyoming Area’s Courtney Melvin (88) and Valley West’s Leanne Dellarte (90) advancing to the girls tournament. The final slot for the boys came down to a three-player playoff between Holy Redeemer’s Matt Slavoski, Pittston Area’s Calvin O’Boyle and Wyoming Area’s Jake Wysocki. Slavoski, who advanced to districts last year, came out victorious on the first extra hole to move on. Medico and Slavoski are two of six Royals to advance. The duo is joined by Chase Makowski (77), Will Fulton (78), Eric Jones (80) and John Kane (82). Pirillo led the way for the Spartans, but the team is sending a conference-high seven participants to the next round. In addition to Pirillo and Dellarte, Chris McCue and Chris Nixon (81s), Andrew Crossin (82) and Colin

Stamkos elbowed Bortuzzo in the head. Bortuzzo up-ended Stamkos. DiDiomete attacked Bortuzzo, got kicked out and spent the next season in the AHL. For DiDiomete, getting kicked out of a game after standing up for a teammate was a fitting way to end his OHL career. “I did what I had to do. Hopefully he (Bortuzzo) doesn’t have too many hard feelings,” DiDiomete said. “I’m sure there’s some guys in here I probably said some bad things to over the last three seasons. Team’s hate playing against me. Hopefully there’s no hard feelings.” Chances are there won’t be if DiDiomete makes the Penguins roster and ends up using his agitating style on their behalf. It’s a role that he enjoys and even took to a new level last season with his 31 fighting majors. “The way I look at it is if you know the other team’s top players

10 or15 goals and is responsible in the defensive zone. I want to contribute more offensively and be solid defensively so the coach can trust me on the ice at any time.” For Penguins head coach John Hynes, he could already tell after Monday’s practice that DiDiomete is capable of contributing in other areas. “Today I could see he was really attentive to detail and he executed well in the drills,” Hynes said. “He’s an accomplished player in the league and he has shown he has the ability to play at this level.”

are more worried about me, it gives our top players more freedom,” DiDiomete said. “Opponents will take shots and runs at me and I’m totally fine with that. I’m more than willing to stick up for any guy on my team.” DiDiomete is also fine with paying the physical price that comes with his style of play. “You have some weekend you’re fighting three or four times,” he said. “Monday morning I wake up and look at my hand and it’s black and blue with cuts all over. “It’s not too bad though. It’s better than working in an office.” As DiDiomete prepares to enter his fourth AHL season, he hinted that changes may be coming. He’s not going to abandon the physical play, but he’d like show that he can be solid in his own zone and contribute offensively as well. Before reaching the AHL, DiDiomete topped the 20-goal mark twice in juniors, so he isn’t a total stranger to putting the puck in the net. “I want to show I can do a little more than (fighting),” he said. “A guy I want to model myself after is someone like Daniel Carcillo. He fights, hits, skates well, can score

NOTES • Compared to past years, this season’s opening day of training camp had more depth in terms of skill and maturity. That was due in part to the late start, which allowed Pittsburgh to send down a group of players before camp began. Hynes also said Pittsburgh’s scouts have done a good job of finding players more skilled and prepared for the pro game. “We have a lot of depth and you could tell that in the pace of the practice,” he said. “There’s maturity

and they executed.” • Hynes commended those players returning from last season for stepping up Monday to fill the leadership role and help the newcomers. Players such as Joey Mormina, Bryan Lerg, Geoff Walker and Zach Sill. Sill said he was happy to fill the leadership role. “I like it. I’m an outspoken, outgoing guy and I can help the new players with getting around town and what we do in practice because I’ve been here,” he said. “You just try to make them feel comfortable, relax and play the way they can.” • Hynes was impressed with the performance of Mountain Top resident Martin Moucha on Monday. Moucha, 27, played a few games in the ECHL last season and is someone that the Penguins had been watching. “It wasn’t just on a whim,” Hynes said. “We’ve been aware of him over the last couple of years. He’s an older guy who is very dedicated. He was one of the best off-ice testing guys in camp and he has skill and a strong desire to play. He’s earned it and now he’s getting a chance.”

CMYK Confident or scared?


It’s hard to believe that consumers have become more optimistic about the economy this month as they watched the continuing volatility in the stock market. But economists predict that the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence index crept higher. But don’t look for a big rise in stocks. The real measure of how consumers are feeling is how much they’ve spent – and those numbers have fallen along with confidence.

A look at home prices


The Standard &Poor’s/Case-Shiller home price index will show whether people in 20 major cities were able to get better prices for their homes during July. Prices rose from April through June, the busiest time of the year for sales. But economists have forecast that prices would fall in the second half of the year along with demand. The drop in stocks since early July has likely discouraged many people from buying.

The nation’s largest drugstore chain is expected to report a 12 percent increase in fiscal fourthquarter earnings. Investors are likely to be more interested in how it’s handling a contract dispute with pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts. Walgreen is threatening to end their relationship worth $5.3 billion a year because it believes it’s not being paid enough. Walgreen stock is down more than 18 percent because of the dispute.

Buffett offers buyback Warren Buffett is sending a clear signal that he believes Berkshire Hathaway’s stock is undervalued by announcing a plan to repurchase stock for the first time since taking over the firm in 1965. Berkshire said Monday the company Buffett leads will repurchase its Class A and B shares anytime they are trading at less than 110 percent of book value. Berkshire’s Class A stock surged 6.9 percent, or $6,930, to $107,250 in afternoon trading after the announcement. Its more affordable Class B shares rose $5.09, or 7.7 percent, to $71.46. Book value is a measure of a company’s value that Buffett often cites because it is similar to the intrinsic value figure he calculates to determine if an investment is overpriced. At the end of June, Berkshire estimated its assets were worth $98,716 per Class A share after liabilities were deducted.


NEW YORK -- Free checking has dropped to about 45 percent of U.S. customer accounts, compared with 65 percent last year, according to a study released Monday. By The average monthly fee on non-interest checking accounts is $4.37, compared with $2.49 last year, the survey found. The average balance required to avoidthechargehasmorethandoubledto $585. “Justbecausebanksareeliminatingfree checking doesn’t mean you’re going to be stuck paying the fee," said Greg McBride,,a unit of Bankrate Inc.

Legislation capping debit-card swipe fees charged to merchants and restrictions on overdraft charges are driving banks to stop offering free checking as a way to raise revenue, McBride said. Changes to debit-card swipe fees may cut annual revenue at the biggest banks by $8 billion, data compiled by Bloomberg Government show. Debit-card fees are still rare, McBride said. Less than 2 percent of accounts surveyed charge a monthly or annual fee for using a debit card and 4 percent apply a point-of-sale fee when swiping it. “We’re going to see more fees for having debit cards or more fees for using a debit card,butsuchfeeswilllikelystillbetheexception rather than the rule,” McBride

said. Bankrate, based in North Palm Beach, Fla., surveyed 243 interest-bearing checking accounts and 238 non-interest accounts nationwide. Inadditiontothe45percentofaccounts that are still free, another 47 percent will waive the fee for customers if they use direct deposit of paychecks or maintain certain minimum total balances, McBride said. The average automated teller machine surcharge assessed by a bank on non-accountholders hit a record $2.40 this year, compared with $2.33 last year, the study said.Theaveragefeechargedbyacustomer’sownfinancialinstitutionforgoingoutside the network is unchanged at $1.41.

Netflix makes deal with DreamWorks

The law firm of Scartelli, Distasio & Kowalski, P.C. has changed its name to Scartelli Olszewski, P.C. In 2010, the firm added Peter Paul Olszewski, Jr. as its managing partner and has now changed its name to reflect Olszewski’s role. Olszewski is married to Melissa A. Scartelli, the firm’s president. To complement the name change, the firm has been rebranded and its website,, has been expanded.

A new duplex is offered for sale at 267 E. Grove St., Kingston. New home sales nationwide dropped in August to a six-month low.

Home sales decline


WASHINGTON -- Purchases of new houses declined in August to a sixmonth low as the biggest drop in prices in two years failed to lure buyers away from even less expensive distressed properties. Sales, tabulated when contracts are signed, dropped 2.3 percent to a 295,000 annual pace, figures from the Commerce Department showed Monday in Washington. The median price slumped 7.7 percent from August 2010, the steepest12-month drop since July 2009. Foreclosure-driven price decreases for previously owned homes may keep

attracting investors away from new properties, hurting builders. Limited access to credit, rising unemployment and waning consumer confidence also signal the industry that helped precipitate the recession will take time to find its footing. “Sales are very weak, and there will be very little improvement over the next couple of months,” said Celia Chen, a housing economist at Moody’s Analytics Inc. “We expect a step up in distressed home sales, which will put more downward pressure on prices. It’ll be a very slow return to normal.” The median sales price decreased to $209,100 in August from $226,600 in the same month last year, today’s report showed.

Purchases fell in three of four U.S. regions last month, led by a 14 percent drop in the Northeast. The Midwest registered the only gain, advancing 8.2 percent. The supply of homes at the current sales rate rose to 6.6 month’s worth, from 6.5 months in the prior month. There were 162,000 new houses on the market at the end of August, the fewest in data going back to 1963. New home sales, which are tabulated when contracts are signed, have lost their ability to forecast the broader market as demand shifts to previously owned houses. Purchases of existing houses are calculated when a deal closes about a month or two later.

SAN FRANCISCO — After a deluge of disillusioning news, Netflix unveiled a coming attraction that its subscribers might like: the Internet video rights to films and television specials from DreamWorks Animation. The multiyear deal announced Monday will give Netflix Inc.’s streaming service the exclusive rights to show the latest content from DreamWorks, the studio behind a list of popular franchises that includes “Shrek,” “Kung Fu Panda” and “Madagascar.” But the rights don’t kick in until 2013. So, the DreamWorks material won’t immediately placate Netflix customers who are clamoring for Netflix’s streaming library to widen its selection of box office hits. The complaints could escalate early next year when Netflix loses the streaming rights to Walt Disney Co. movies and other films that it got through a licensing deal it had with Starz Entertainment. Still, the DreamWorks deal represents a badly needed coup for Netflix, which has been reeling from a customer backlash triggered by sharp price increases and an upcoming spin-off of its DVD-bymail service into a website called “Qwikster.” Netflix snatched the DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. rights from pay-TV rival HBO, providing the latest sign that Internet video has emerged as a compelling — and lucrative — alternative for Hollywood movie and TV studios. Although the financial terms weren’t spelled out, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg left no doubt that Netflix is paying his studio more than Time Warner Inc.’s HBO currently is.

Motorola LapDock helps you get most out of your smartphone LAST WEEK I reviewed the Motorola Droid Bionic from Verizon Wireless – but it turns out I missed one of the most interesting features of the device: the Motorola LapDock – an accessory that turns your smartphone into a netbook computer. Let’s be honest. If you buy the fastest, most powerful smartphone in the world, in all likelihood you’ll use about 20 percent of its full potential. Motorola aims to rectify that problem with the LapDock. Featuring an 11.6 inch screen, dual USB ports and a full-size keyboard, the LapDock is remarkably thin – only .43 inches to be precise, and weighs in at a puny 2.4 pounds.

NICK DELORENZO TECH TALK Simply plug your phone into the LapDock’s cradle and you’ve got an instant netbook, ready to do some serious work. To my surprise, the LapDock didn’t just enlarge the screen from the Bionic. It’s got a totally separate interface, designed specifically for the 11.6 inch display. The LapDock offers access to a full version of Mozilla’s popular Firefox browser and allows you to open and close various programs on the phone using an interface similar to Windows or Mac’s OSX. I found the LapDock to be surpris-

ingly fast and user-friendly. The Bionic’s dual core processors and copious amounts of memory made running apps and using programs a snap. A welcome feature was the mobile view. It allows you to access and interact with the display on your phone in a separate window – albeit on a larger scale. I was able to take a phone call while playing with the LapDock. It popped up a window and switched to speaker

mode – I can see the potential for placing conference calls here. The LapDock concept is one that is likely to grow increasingly popular as people become aware of the devices. It combines the convenience of a laptop with all of the data and information in your phone. It’s slim enough that traveling won’t be a major ordeal. Only one complaint: The dock itself costs $200 – and you can probably pick up a low-end or used netbook for that price. To me, it’s slick enough to be worth it – and it is definitely a viable platform in terms of productivity. Nick DeLorenzo is director of Interactive and New Media for The Times Leader.

A stalled weather pattern will continue to allow warm and humid air to move our way for today and tomorrow.

As the stalled storm weakens and finally begins to drift east later this week, more showers will come our way by Thursday. A strong surge of chilled Canadian air will plow through town Friday evening paving the way for a dramatic change in temperature for the weekend. - Tom Clark

Eye care’s clear future

By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent


f the eyes are “the windows to the soul� then recent advancements in ophthalmology are helping to ensure that our visual portals stay clear and bright well into the future. As Northeast Pennsylvania’s baby boomers reach retirement age, and life expectancy continues to increase, state-of-the-art eye care is fast becoming a major component of the vast health care market.

Area eye surgeon looking out for signs of macular degeneration By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

Age-related macular degeneration is one of the most prevalent progressive eye diseases in the U.S. and with Luzerne County having one of the country’s largest elder populations, the eye disease has become a major local health concern. In fact, The National Eye Institute says that “owing to the rapidly aging population, the number of persons having AMD will increase by 50 percent in 2020.� One area ophthalmologist is at the forefront of AMD research and testing in an effort to help control this sight-robbing disorder.

Using Zyrtec over the age of 65 has risks Q: I am over 65 and have been using Zyrtec for allergies for several years. I just noticed on the label that it says “not for over 65.� Why is that? Now what do I use? A: They don’t mean to imply that Zyrtec is not for folks over the age of 65. What they actually recommend is that if you’re over the age of 65, or if you have liver or kidney problems, you should ask your doctor if it’s OK to use it. Since Zyrtec is now an overthe-counter antihistamine and can be taken without a doctor’s knowledge, they’re just advising caution in older folks. Based upon the manufacturer’s studies of Zyrtec metabolism in folks over the age of 65, they recommend that folks who are 77 years and older take only 5 mg per day (versus the usual adult dosage of 10mg/day). If your recent blood work shows that your kidney and liver function are not impaired and you’re under the age of 77, you can safely take either 5 or 10mg per day of Zyrtec — depending upon your allergy needs. Zyrtec, Claritin, Alavert and Allegra are all now available without a doctor’s prescription and they all carry the same warning that you should ask your doctor about maintaining or reducing the usual adult dosage if you’re over the age of 65 or if you have a history of liver and/or kidney impairment.

According to the Vision Council of America, six in 10 adults in the U.S. need some type of corrective eye wear, and that number is beginning to grow as the population ages. Billions of dollars in research is being done throughout the world to improve eye care for the millions of patients in need of state-of-the-art, cost-effective treatment and a number of local physicians are on the cutting edge of that technology. One of the more novel advancements in eye care is Corneal Refractive Therapy or orthokeratotomy, which allows users to wear specially-developed, gas- Blase permeable lenses that work to reshape the cornea while they sleep. In the morning, the lenses are removed and patients experience clear, 20/20 vision throughout the day. “CRT is an effective, non-surgical alternative to Lasik,� said Bucci Dr. Robert Blase of Eye Care Specialists and one of the pioneers of CRT in the area. “The technology is fully reversible and cost-effective with very few complications.� Blase said he has used CRT on more than 1,000 patients since 2003 and the results are similar to LASIK surgery. According to Blase, another important benefit of CRT is that patients generally will not experience progression of the underlying eye problem, as is often the case with glasses or standard contact lenses. “My first patient was a 9-year-old boy,� explained Blase. “He’s attending college this year and his myopia hasn’t progressed with treatment.� Blase added that the total cost for the young man’s ongoing CRT care was around $2,500. Another eye care specialty that is experiencing a wave of innovation is in the area of cataract surSee EYE CARE, Page 2C


“We now have the ability in the area to perform genetic testing that allows us to assess the risk of developing macular degeneration over a patient’s lifetime,� exKruger plained Dr. Erik Kruger of Eye Care Specialists.

Advanced stages of the disease can lead to a total loss of

Omega-3 is also important.� Kruger said that home monitoring for at-risk patients is vital to early detection and that new drugs are coming to the market with considerable potential to treat the disease. “It’s exciting to be a part of clinical trials with diseases like macular degeneration,� Kruger said. “It keeps me on the cutting edge of the research and I’m happy to provide this service to people here in the valley.�

Q: Are there really advantages to using a robot to help perform surgery? If so, what are they? A: Definitely! Robotic-assisted surgery offers significant advantages over traditional surgery or laparoscopic surgery for many, but not all surgical procedures. Instead of directly moving the instruments, a surgeon uses a manipulator under computer control to precisely and delicately control movements. This allows for much smaller incisions, a lower risk of bleeding, less pain, a reduced chance of surgical error, a faster recovery time, and shorter hospitalizations. What’s more, since this surgery is performed using a computer and video imaging system, there’s the potential for a patient in a hospital operating room in one part of the world to receive specialized surgery by a skilled surgeon in another part of the world. Examples where robotic-assisted surgery has successfully been used include: minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery; fibroid surgery; hysterectomy; prostate removal in cancer; liver tumor resection; heart valve repair; hip and knee replacement surgery; and kidney transplantation. The disadvantages to roboticsurgery are equipment cost ($1.2 million and up); extensive training required by the surgeon and operating room personnel; and operating room procedures that take up to twice as long as the comparable traditional surgical procedures.

ach 65. They don’t want to wear glasses” Bucci stated that most insurance coverage pays for standard cataract surgery with a “monofocal” implanted lens and that a patient must pay out-of-pocket for the new TECNIS® lens. “People want to look good,” Bucci added. “In the end, people are willing to pay for ‘value-added.’ ” According to, laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis or LASIK is a laser eye procedure designed to change the shape of the cornea to eliminate or reduce the need for glasses and contact lenses in cases of severe myopia or nearsightedness. Recent advancements in LASIK surgery have allowed physicians to perform the procedure

using laser technology which produces much better results and fewer complications. “The IntraLase® technology has revolutionized the industry,” said Dr. Harvey Riser of Eye Care Specialists. “It’s a more precise, painless procedure and the results have been impressive.” Riser said that while the laser technique can be 20 percent more expensive than the old “blade” procedure, the technology is so far advanced that today he uses IntraLase® exclusively for all his LASIK patients. “I’ll never go back and do a blade procedure again,” stated Riser. “The laser is much more precise and safer for my patients.” A number of promising eye care innovations, such as ultrasound cataract technology and genetic testing are on the horizon, and the aforementioned doctors plan to lead the way into a bright future.

Readers reject aunt’s demand that bashful niece talk on the phone Dear Abby: I think your response to “Outgoing Aunt in Texas” (July 16) about the shy 12-year-old girl was misguided. The aunt felt “Tammy’s” parents should “make” her come to the phone and speak to her. You felt the child’s behavior was rude and said her mother was covering for her. Being shy or overly sensitive is an inborn personality trait that can be very disturbing. Forcing a shy person to do something uncomfortable may make the problem worse. Talking on the phone is one of the hardest things for a shy person because he or she can’t read the other person’s face or body language.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Many 12-year-olds feel awkward in social situations, particularly if they are shy. A loving family member should try to be sensitive to this and not force the child to do something he or she is not comfortable doing. It’s possible that Tammy may have a hard time talking to this aunt if she asks Tammy embarrassing questions or makes comments that are hurtful. If that’s the case, then Tammy’s mom is doing the right thing by trying to protect her. — Shy M.D. in Tennessee Dear Shy M.D.: Thank you for offer-

My newspaper readers comment: Dear Abby: Twelve-year-old daughters have a terrible fear of criticism, a fear of failure and a fear of being made fun of by adults and peers. “Outgoing Aunt” sounds heavy-handed to me. I have to wonder what she might have said in the past that has made Tammy so reluctant to even be in the same room with her. Tammy’s mom is right to “cover for her.” — I Was the Same 12-Year-Old Dear Abby: It bothered me that “Outgoing Aunt” was so determined and aggressive about speaking to Tammy.


Has this aunt been unkind to her in the past? I think the aunt should back off and stop demanding to speak to the child. Perhaps the girl isn’t shy or rude — just a great judge of character. — Used to Be a Shy Niece Dear Abby: You’re correct in saying Tammy’s behavior may be anxietybased. There is a childhood anxiety disorder called Selective Mutism in which an expectation to speak can cause a child extreme panic. It results in temporary physical paralysis of the vocal cords, and can render a child unable to cry or communicate distress when severely injured. These children can speak just fine in some situations but not in all oth-

ers, which can be misunderstood as willful behavior. One of the most common situations in which a child cannot speak is with a close friend or relative. I had SM as a child and I helped my son find treatment for it. Without treatment, Tammy is at a heightened risk for depression, panic attacks, agoraphobia, substance abuse and more. I now speak about this disorder to spread awareness and help others locate resources to seek treatment. — Ann Sander in Houston To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re not going to have much fun until your major responsibilities are covered. That’s normally easy for you to do, but today you’ll need a little help from your friends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your path will veer to the left and the right and then do a loop-theloop. Who is to say the distractions and diversions aren’t really the main road? Maybe they should be! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know what is good for your loved ones, but sometimes they just have to figure things out for themselves. You’ll exert your influence with the perfect balance of respect and power. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Certain people bring out the worst in you. You know who they are. Somehow you talk too much around them and say things you weren’t expecting to say. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll enjoy an encounter with someone who has limited time available in his or her schedule. You’ll make the most of whatever time you have with this person. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a storm moving in on your love life. It’s nothing major, and it will quickly pass. So don’t get too worked up. This is just the kind of change and excitement that adds excitement to relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The line between private information and public information may be blurred. It’s not because you don’t know the difference; it’s because the rules about what’s “appropriate” are constantly changing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The theme is: an unlikely pairing. This probably has to do with a friend’s choice of companionship, but it will affect how your day unfolds, too. Your friend’s choice could land you in a mighty strange situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). New directions are not always good directions. You are not a blind follower. You might even be called a skeptic. You won’t be sorry if you scrutinize the instructions you are given. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s thunder and lightning outside your window — at least figuratively. Dark clouds roll into your personal life, just to test the integrity of a relationship and help you figure out what to do next. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You always take the time to be with those you care about when you know they are in need. It’s even more special when you give your attention to loved ones knowing they don’t need a thing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Blame is not useful, even if you are the one blaming yourself. Assigning blame takes focus away from doing what it takes to fix a situation. Always be moving forward. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 27). Your approach to work raises it to an artistic level. Your meticulous attention to detail will get you promoted and awarded. Creative and romantic risks pay off in November. You’ll get loved ones and colleagues enrolled in your plan. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 4, 8 and 17.

Andrew Mulson, regarding a property on the corner of Park & Ash Streets. Applicant seeks a special exception from 502.1 & 502.2 permitted uses.

Additionally, the applicant is seeking side and rear yard setback variances. 3. Ken & Patricia Ustynoski, regarding a property on the corner of Lakeside and Sunset Drive. Property is a non-conforming lot of record in the R1-A zoning district. Applicant proposes construction of a single family residence, and is seeking relief of Front, Side, & Rear property set-backs as required in 502.4 (c), (d), and (e). 4. Charles & Deleanna Kabalka, regarding an empty lot adjacent to their home at 57 Hemlock Street. Applicant proposes construction of a shed as the principal structure on the empty lot and would like a variance from 503.1, permitted uses in an R-2 zoning district. Copies of these applications can be reviewed at the Harveys Lake Municipal Building during regular business hours. Andy Luzetski Zoning Officer
