WILKES-BARRE – The city’s budget will increase by nearly $1 million in 2012, but Mayor Tom Leighton said there won’t be a tax hike, all city fees will remain the same and no employees will be furloughed.

City Council candidate Linda Urban on Thursday challenged Wilkes-Barre officials over the expenditure of about $8,000 for security systems for the homes of the mayor and the former city administrator.

WILKES-BARRE – A frequent critic of Mayor Tom Leighton took him to task Thursday for having security systems with a total value of about $8,000 installed at his home and the home of his city administrator several years ago at taxpayer expense. Linda Urban, who is challenging Councilman Bill Barrett for his seat in the city’s District D in the November election, publicly called for Leighton to resign at Thursday’s council meeting. She said installing the systems was a

“misappropriation of public funds” and “a gift that enhanced Mayor Leighton’s real estate.” Earlier in the day, Urban provided The Times Leader with a copy of an invoice for $4,075 from Torbik Safe & Lock in Wilkes-Barre dated March 1, 2005, for a service call to furnish and install an alarm system at J.J. Murphy’s Plymouth Avenue home. During an interview in his office, Leighton confirmed that

“We should not be supplying any type of security systems to any elected official or city employee on the taxpayers’ dime.”

Kadluboski calls for officials to step down The frequent critic of W-B government says he’ll sue if necessary. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – With the November general election less than a month away, City Council and Mayor Tom Leighton listened to criticisms Thursday night from familiar foes and new adversaries. Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former towing contractor, asked Leighton, the five council members and solicitor William Vinsko to resign. “I’ll give you all a chance,” Kadluboski said. “If you all don’t resign, then I will file a lawsuit. I’m sick of the way I’ve been treated and the way you treat others.” Kadluboski leveled several accusations against officials and he reiterated his concerns about LAG Towing, the city’s current contracted tower. Kadluboski claims LAG owner Leo Glodzik charges exorbitant fees and is allowed to do so because he has contributed heavily to Leighton’s campaigns. Councilman Bill Barrett told Kadluboski to provide all information and documentation he has and bring it forward. “Maybe we can then get a resolution to all of this,” Barrett said. Linda Urban, Republican candidate for City Council in District D, is running against Barrett. She said council should not receive full-time benefits for part-time work. Vinsko said the benefits are allowed by state law and council cannot change that. But Urban said part-time workers have to put in 32.5 hours per week to be eligible for benefits. “I want to see where they work those hours, Mr. Vinsko,” she said. Urban also asked to see the lease figures for golf carts. Kane said the rental amount remained the same from 2011 to 2012 -$5,385. She said the fee will rise by 3 percent each year through 2016. “Some of your golf carts have been seen in the Turkey Hill parking lot across from Hollenback,” Urban said. Barrett said the city needs golf carts at the course. Karen Ceppa, Republican candidate for city controller – the office Kane is seeking in November as a Democrat -- asked where revenue generated from the 13 mills of taxes used to meet a milliondollar award for the fire department is now used. Ceppa also asked why the city has not adopted the county’s reassessment figures. “Is this because the mayor and his friends in Barney Farms would see a large tax increase?” Ceppa asked. Kane said Ceppa has submitted her questions to the city clerk’s office under a right-toknow request and the information will be provided to her. “This is all political,” Kane said after the meeting.

Fire destroys home damaged by flood Times Leader Staff

NESCOPECK – A fast-moving fire Thursday morning destroyed a house that sustained flood damage last month. Four people safely got out of the two-story wood structure at 355 Second St., said Dave Shoemaker, assistant fire chief. The fire that was reported at 8:20 a.m. started near the outside second-floor entrance, said Shoemaker. A state police fire marshal was called to the scene but has not made a determination on the cause and the blaze is still under investigation. The owner of the house, Edna Burger, lived on the first floor, but she was not staying there at the time of the fire, said Shoemaker. The basement of the house had flood damage.

New council, when elected, will need time to find manager, fill top posts

Temporary county chiefs sought By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Luzerne County’s home rule transition committee is inviting people to apply for temporary management positions that may be needed when the new county council takes office in January. The need for an interim county manager and division heads may arise because council members won’t be elected until Nov. 8 and may not be prepared to hire a manager at their first meeting on Jan. 2, said transition committee Chairman Jim Bobeck. The council may designate an interim manager to serve up to six months until someone is permanently selected to fill the post. The eight division head positions can’t be permanently filled until the manager is

on board because the charter requires the manager to recommend candidates for thosepositions,though the final hirings will be subject to county council confirmation. Bobeck Temporary appointees may also be required to oversee services currently provided by an elected coroner and sheriff, Bobeck said. A notice explaining the interim application opportunity was in the process of being posted Thursday in the home rule transition section of the county’s website at www.luzernecounty.org, he said. No action will be taken to fill interim spots until the 11 new council members are elected and join the transition commit-

tee; the council-elect may determine that no outside temporary assistance is needed, Bobeck said. “With such a monumental transition, it’s imperative that we have a contingency plan in place,” he said. Several county council candidates and county officials have criticized the committee’s decision to seek applications, saying the action should have waited a few weeks until the new council members join the committee. Transition member Rick Morelli said the interim solicitation is causing unnecessary confusion because the council members may opt to fill only a few interim slots and rely on existing staff until the permanent manager is hired, in part because hiring outside temporary workers could be an additional expense.

He also questioned the logic of posting the opportunity on the website instead of an advertisement that would be viewed by more people. Morelli also criticized Bobeck’s decision to send letters to some employees alerting them to the upcoming web posting when all county workers are eligible to apply. Bobeck said he sent the letter to row office deputies and some other high-level county managers as a courtesy. The committee has an obligation to do all it can to prepare the new council, and somecurrentemployeesmaybeunableor unwilling to fill temporary posts, he said. According to the online posting approvedbythecommittee,peoplemaysubmit letters of interest for more than one position. Applicants will have about a month to apply.

Trailers win approval

The Salem Township supervisors voted Tuesday night to allow the placement of 10 manufactured housing units for Shickshinny flood victims on two sites in the township: the Bodnarosa complex along Route 11 and at 1343 Salem Blvd. The township received the request to host the temporary homes because FEMA does not allow the trailers to be placed in a flood plain. The trailers, officially called temporary housing units, accommodate a family of four. Flood victims may remain in the trailers for 18 months. WILKES-BARRE

WILKES-BARRE – A local attorney filed a lawsuit in Luzerne County Court on Wednesday alleging judicial corruption against a county senior judge and an attorney acting as his law clerk. Joseph R. Reisinger, of Kingston, filed the 37-page suit against Senior Judge Charles Brown and Michael Shucosky, asking that neither man have any involvement in his pending litigation in county court. Reisinger claims Shucosky is “truly corrupt” and has an “overwhelming influence” on Brown, a senior judge from Centre County who has served Luzerne County for a number of years. Reisinger also questions Brown’s mental and emotional status as a judge and claims over $3.6 million has collectively been lost and/or is owed to him. Shucosky serves as a court master who makes recommendations to judges in various court proceedings.

Reisinger says Shucosky is the “corruptor-in-chief” and that Shucosky scheduled hearings and handled filings where he “caused” Brown to rule a certain way. Reisinger questions Brown’s mental and emotional status in the complaint, citing that it appears Shucosky is “calling the shots.” Brown’s conduct during one particular proceeding, Reisinger wrote, indicates Brown is “unfit to presently serve as a jurist” after papers were thrown during a court proceeding and Brown “obviously expressed” his “contempt and hostility” towards Reisinger. Reisinger also alleges Brown told him that he would no longer read any of Reisinger’s court papers because there were “too many pages for him to waste his time.” “Any lawyer or any judge…could clearly conclude that Judge Brown was obviously not fit to continue to serve as a jurist in any courtroom in this commonwealth,” Reisinger wrote.

Taking aim at Sunday hunting By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

HANOVER TWP. – Sunday hunting dominated a wide array of topics addressed during a public forum on Thursday with two state legislators and members of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The event at the Hanover Area Jr./Sr. High School was hosted by state Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, in the auditorium of the Hanover Area High School. Along with Mullery, state Rep. Ed Staback D-Archbald, Game Commission Executive Director Carl Roe and Jay Delaney, game commission commissioner for the Northeast Region, were there to answer questions. Approximately 40 people attended the forum, which featured presentations from the panel followed by a question-and-answer session. Questions

ranged from nuisance bear trapping to antlerless license allocations, but the majority of time was spent on Sunday hunting. Staback, who recently co-sponsored a bill that would give the Game Commission the authority to implement Sunday hunting, urged those in favor of the measure to contact their legislators. If they don’t, Staback said, the bill will not make it out of the House Game and Fisheries Committee and likely won’t be brought up again for a long time. “If the sporting population takes it for granted that this will pass without their help, they are sadly mistaken,” Staback said. “Opponents are putting together a strong effort against the measure.” Two public hearings have been held in the state regarding Sunday hunting, and Staback said about 60 percent of those in attendance were supportive.

On Thursday, however, when polled the majority of those at the forum indicated they weren’t in favor of Sunday hunting. One of the concerns cited was the impact Sunday hunting would have on deer populations if it were allowed during the two-week rifle season. Staback said he has been assured the Game Commission will conduct public hearings across the state, as well as gather input from its biologists, before determining which seasons would be open for Sunday hunting. “We don’t want people assuming that deer hunting will be included,” he said. Delaney said the commission is extremely conservative when it comes to managing wildlife, and if the bill passes it won’t open the floodgates for hunting on Sundays. He did suggest one possibility would be the youth pheasant season.

Officials learn how to get flood recovery aid for towns By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

NANTICOKE – Officials dealing with storm and flood damage in their municipalities received a quick lesson Thursday night on how to apply for state and federal money to pay for cleanup and repairs. Approximately 100 people attended the two-hour meeting presented by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency at Luzerne County Community College. The county has been included in the disaster declarations signed by President Barack Obama for areas affected by Hurricane Irene in August and Tropical Storm Lee in September. Municipalities are eligible for grants issued through Federal Emergency Manage-

ment Agency to PEMA. In order to be reimbursed for expenses such as road and bridge repairs, debris removal and overtime for police and fire personnel, the municipalities must fill out paperwork and provide documentation. If the municipalities incurred expenses for each of the disasters, they must complete two separate Request for Public Assistance forms, said Joe W. Rupe Jr., the PEMA representative who conducted the meeting. “Without the RPA, you’re not an applicant,” said Rupe. He walked them through the application process, answered questions and directed them to FEMA representatives who will begin meeting with municipal officials on Monday at the county Emergency Management Agency

building on Water Street. Work on emergency projects such as debris removal must be completed by March 3 of next year. Repairs to roads and bridges and buildings and equipment fall under the permanent work category and must be finished by March 3, 2013. Claims have a minimum threshold of $1,000. “We’re in pretty good shape. Most of our work is done,” said Marla Conklin, the secretary/treasurer of Hollenback Township, who is handling the filing of paperwork and acting as the point of contact with PEMA and FEMA. She acknowledged there was a lot of paperwork involved but felt comfortable she would be able to complete it. “As far as I know I have everything that they need,” said Conklin.

The general membership meeting for the Wilkes-Barre Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday at Mount Zion Baptist Church, 105 Hill St. Prospective members are invited to attend. The Youth Council’s session will begin at noon. An election of Youth officers is planned at 12:30 p.m. The Executive Committee will convene at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 Pashinski at the church. The NAACP will also host its annual Freedom Fund Banquet with guest speaker state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski on Friday, Oct. 28 at the Genetti Hotel & Conference Center, 77 E. Market St. The reception will begin at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets are $45 for NAACP members and $50 for non-members. For more information, contact the Wilkes-Barre NAACP at 262-1360. DALLAS TWP.

Misericordia to get grant

Misericordia University will receive one of 13 clean energy grants totaling $3.7 million from the Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority. The university will use a $273,841 grant coupled with its own match of $155,149 to install energy-efficient lighting at the sports and health center and the science building, reducing lighting energy use in the buildings by 39 percent, and replace the steam boiler at the student life center, yielding an estimated 33-percent energy savings. PEDA is an independent public financing authority created in 1982 with the mission to finance clean, advanced energy projects in Pennsylvania. Projects that could potentially qualify for PEDA funding include solar energy, wind, low-impact hydropower, geothermal, biomass, landfill gas, fuel cells, IGCC, waste coal, coal-bed methane, and demand management measures.

Push on for canal digging to save capital

hurriedly dredged W orkers canals and cut new water-

ways around Thailand’s capital on Thursday in a desperate battle to protect the city from the country’s worst floods in decades. One jittery Cabinet official called for the evacuation of an area on Bangkok’s northern outskirts, only to take back his warning 15 minutes later. At least 283 people have been killed since late July by floods and mudslides that have devastated rice crops and shut dozens of factories. Bangkok has been mostly spared so far, but some surrounding areas have been inundated and authorities fear that flood waters rushing from the north will combine with rains in the next few days to flood the city. Buildings in many areas of the capital have stockpiled sandbags, while others have built protective walls from cement and cinderblocks.

HARRISBURG

Pennsylvania has wettest September The National Weather Service says last month was Pennsylvania’s wettest September on record. Hydrologist Charles Ross at the agency’s State College office said Thursday that’s based on records going back 117 years. Rain from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee set off flooding throughout eastern Pennsylvania on a scale not seen since Hurricane Agnes in 1972. Thousands of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. But the rainfall was good news for some parts of the state. On Thursday, the state Department of Environmental Protection says it lifted a drought watch declaration that had been in effect in Cameron, Elk, McKean and Potter counties in northwestern Pennsylvania.

By GILLIAN FLACCUS Associated Press

SEAL BEACH, Calif. — The ex-wife of the man suspected of killing eight people in a shooting rampage at a hair salon claimed in court papers filed this year that he was mentally unstable and had threatened to kill himself or someone else at least once. Michelle Fournier Dekraai made the allegations in May in a filing related to her long-running, bitter custody battle with Scott Dekraai over their 7-yearold son. There was no sign that she had filed a restraining order, but a relative of Scott Dekraai said Michelle told her that he had walked into the Meritage Salon as recently as two months ago and threatened to kill Michelle and her co-workers. Police say Scott Dekraai opened fire Wednesday afternoon in the salon, where his exwife worked, and was arrested soon after. On Tuesday he had been in court for a hearing related to the custody dispute. Police have not released information about the victims and it’s unclear if Dekraai’s ex-wife is among them, but witnesses say she was at the salon when the gunman barged in and began shooting. The couple divorced in 2007, and Scott Dekraai remarried, but the battle over their son continued to rage. Michelle Fournier Dekraai wrote in the court papers that her ex-husband was “almost manic when it comes to demanding absolute right to control our son and make unilateral decisions.” She wrote that giving Scott Dekraai more custody of their

child would be lead to “a situation where the inmates are running the asylum.” Sharyn White, a step-aunt of Scott Dekraai and a friend of Michelle’s, said Michelle previously told her that Scott had walked into the salon and threatened to kill Fournier and others. White said that according to Michelle, her colleagues and the customers in the salon laughed off the threat. White, of Seal Beach, said in a telephone interview that Scott Dekraai had a troubled upbring-

ing and grappled with mental illness. Michelle Dekraai wrote in the court filing that her ex-husband had been physically abusive to her during their marriage, and that in 2008 he beat his stepfather, pleaded guilty to assault and battery and underwent a year of anger management. A temporary restraining order obtained by Scott Dekraai’s stepfather in 2007 said Dekraai attacked him that year, leaving him with cuts and bruises on his face and right arm.

look anything like an NFL linebacker, but had earned his nickname by taking apart and reassembling a bulldozer to figure out how to make it work better. Biden called that a testament to Lee’s perseverance and patience in pursuit of practical solutions. Lee, for his part, made sure to point out that the bulldozer had been made by Caterpillar, an American company.

Kelly Dem test for Casey By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Brian Kelly, a retired Marywood University professor from WilkesBarre, will formally announce he’s running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Bob Casey. Kelly, 63, will make the announcement at Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Tuesday. He’ll have a local announcement at the Barney Inn in Wilkes-Barre next Friday at 3 p.m. “As I seek the Pennsylvania Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, I intend to expose the ‘unknown’ Sen. Casey for who he really is -- a political clone of Barack Obama. And in order to achieve my goal, my campaign will accept donations this time around,” said Kelly, who ran a low-budget congressional race in 2010 to try to unseat U.S. Rep. Paul Kanjorski. He garnered nearly 20 percent of the primary vote, but finished third behind Kanjorski and Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien. He took no campaign contributions, held no fundraisers and

sought no organization’s endorsement. He spent $4,000 of his own money to buy a few hundred signs and pins, a few Kelly dozen T-shirts and about 1,250 matchbooks touting his candidacy. He knows this race must be different, but he said he needs to step forward and try to change the mindset in Washington and to do that means removing some of the officials who are “crushing the economy.” He said Casey is among that group. “I have spent my life working in both the private and public sectors. I know what must be done to create jobs and get the economy moving. Moreover, you can’t fix the problems in Washington by sending back the same politicians who created the mess in the first place,” Kelly said. A conservative Democrat, he chose not to run for the U.S. House again next year because he ap-

Welch joins: Tim Burns, an entrepreneur from Washington County; Laureen Cummings, of Old Forge, who owns Lorimar Home Care; Marc Scaringi, a Harrisburgarea lawyer and former aide to Rick Santorum; Tom Smith, a former coal company owner from Armstrong County; David Christian, a Bucks County business owner; John Kensinger, a Bedford County pharmacist; and John Vernon, a retired Army colonel from Tioga County.

proves of the job being done by GOP U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta. He said he’s hoping Democrats will see him as the best candidate to get things moving in the right direction and he believes the party’s conservatives have been “alienated” by Casey to the point where they’re looking for another option.

New hopeful targets Casey By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Another Republican trying to unseat U.S. Sen. Bob Casey has announced his candidacy on Thursday, bringing the field to eight. Steve Welch, a 35-year-old entrepreneur from Malvern, Chester County, said he is running on a platform of job creation and reviving the economy. The father of three touted his business acumen and said he’s running to help “make sure that the same opportunities for prosperity exist for my children and a whole lot of other children in Pennsylvania. It’s time for a new direction that grows our economy instead of putting us further into catastrophic debt.”

A Penn State University graduate who earned a degree in mechanical engineering, he posted a campaign video on Welch his website introducing himself to the public and spelling out who he is and what he stands for. “As Americans, we’ve been blessed to inherit a country from our parents and grandparents that values and rewards hard work and responsibility. But today, that tradition is seriously threatened,” he said. Welch’s personal bankroll could separate himself from most of the other GOP candidates, but he has a

bull’s-eye on his back because of what he did in 2005. “I was very frustrated with Republicans in Washington,” he said. “They were growing Washington out of control.” So he switched political parties. He voted for Barack Obama for president in the party’s primary election. He said it was more a vote against Hillary Clinton than a vote for Obama. He said he voted for Republican John McCain in the 2008 general election. But very quickly, he noted, he realized the error of his ways and his dissatisfaction with his new party. So he came back into the GOP and began financially supporting Republican candidates.

Attorney wants mayor held in contempt Lawyer for Denise Carey says Leighton refused to provide information on assets. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The attorney for a city woman who won a $67,000 judgment against Mayor Tom Leighton and the city is seeking to hold Leighton in contempt of court for failing to fully answer questions regarding his assets. Attorney Cynthia Pollick filed a contempt motion Thursday, alleging Leighton has refused to provide information she needs to proceed with a separate court action that will seek to seize his assets to satis-

fy the judgment obtained by Denise Carey. A federal jury awarded Carey the money in NoLeighton vember 2008 in connection with a lawsuit she filed that alleged Leighton retaliated against her because she challenged the closure of a fire station in the Heights section of the city. The jury awarded Carey $17,000 in compensatory damages, plus $50,000 in punitive damages against Leighton. In August, Pollick filed a notice advising Leighton she intended to file a writ of execution against him, which would

allow her to seek to seize property and other assets from him. As part of that filing, she issued a set of questions that asked him to identify all assets. The contempt motion, filed in federal court, alleges Leighton has failed to fully respond to those questions. Leighton’s attorney, John Dean, has filed court documents that oppose Pollick’s requests. Dean contends much of the information Pollick is seeking is irrelevant to the case, therefore Leighton should not be required to respond. In a previous interview, Dean said the $50,000 Leighton was ordered to pay will be covered by several insurance carriers for the city, therefore his assets have no bearing on the case.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “You don’t have a competitive marketplace.” Peter Welch The congressman from Vermont was among several Democratic lawmakers who on Thursday asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate whether Bank of America and other major banks improperly worked together to charge customers new monthly fees for using their debit cards. Welch said the lawmakers have no evidence of collusion.

OTHER OPINION: CITIZENSHIP

Immigrants suffer under harsh law

A

TIDE OF anti-immigrant sentiment has produced the nation’s harshest crackdown on undocumented residents. While the courts have blocked some of Alabama’s draconian law, it still stands as a distressing example of the growing national anger at vulnerable people whose main offense is wanting to pursue better lives in this country. Alabama’s law makes criminals of anyone who would “harbor” or “transport” an illegal immigrant. Parents will have to start asking a child’s Hispanic playmate to show them his papers before allowing him to sleep over. Likewise for any landlord renting to someone with a foreign accent. Enforcement of such extreme measures, which clearly contradict federal law, was temporarily blocked by U.S.

District Judge Sharon Blackburn. But other harsh steps got her blessing. State and local police now have huge discretion to check for immigration papers and detain a person on only an undefined “reasonable suspicion” of illegal status. Ironically, this anti-immigrant fervor comes at a time when federal enforcement of immigration laws actually has gotten tougher. Deportations have reached record levels, while the number trying to enter illegally appears to be dropping. Those illegal immigrants who have been in this country a long time and lived otherwise law-abiding lives should be given a path to citizenship. America is still a magnet for those who want better lives, and Americans should be proud of that. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Corbett should get his facts (and figures) straight IF GOV. Tom Corbett wants to push school choice – and proposals he announced Tuesday show he does – he needs to stop cherry-picking, contorting and outright ignoring hard data. Corbett played so fast and loose with facts he should have whiplash. Some examples: • The governor said the “dropout rate in Philadelphia is 45 percent.” Apparently he derived this from preliminary graduation rates released earlier this year. That data had Philly’s grad rate at 57.4 percent. Corbett seems to have subtracted that from 100 percent to get a dropout rate, even though the state Department of Education explicitly warns “do not” do this because such a method wouldn’t count students who take more than four years to graduate or who earn a GED. After Corbett’s announcement, a Philly district spokesman told The Associated Press that the true dropout rate is about 31 percent. Unacceptable? Sure. But if Corbett thinks 31 percent equals 45 percent, maybe he should start by reforming his old high school. More important, why base statewide reforms on one district? If we’re going to do that, let’s use Crestwood School District, with a 95 percent graduation rate. Problem solved! • The governor said 99.4 percent of all teacher evaluations “resulted in the highest possible rating of ‘satisfactory,’” repeating the last phrase several times.

MAIL BAG

MARK GUYDISH COMMENTARY True enough. But there are only two ratings: “Satisfactory” or “unsatisfactory.” Corbett could just as easily have said that 99.4 percent of all teacher evaluations “resulted in the second worst possible rating.” • Asked what proof he had that “any of this will improve public education, and what benchmarks” he would agree should be reached to show the reforms work, Corbett punted. “I know the current system is not working … a 45 percent dropout rate is unacceptable … scores are just now slowly starting to rise.” Ignoring the glib application again of questionable Philadelphia dropout data to all school districts, what math does the governor use to say scores are just now slowly starting to rise? Take the state math tests. Ten years ago, the percentages of students scoring proficient or better in grades five, eight and 11 (the only grades tested then) were 53.1, 51.7 and 49.6 respectively. This year it was 76.3, 76.1 and 60.3. Some area schools have doubled the percentage scoring proficient or better in some grades. Regular readers know I’m no fan of the heavy emphasis on state test results. I criticized the prior administration for cherry-

picking data to make it look as if we are breeding a generation of geniuses. I’ve written articles showing the gimmicks behind many of the “Adequate Yearly Progress” successes. There are enough weak points in test results to merit reform. But by most measures, state scores overall have risen fairly steadily and fairly substantially. There’s a reason Corbett massaged facts into mush. There is still no solid evidence school choice works. Research results have been either mixed or tainted on both sides by organizations pushing their agendas. That’s not to say his proposals can’t or won’t succeed. There’s good reason to beef up the teacher evaluation method, though our “no tax hike” governor has been mum on who pays for all the extra work needed to implement the more complex system. Local districts have picked up their game when faced with competition from charter and cyber schools, expanding offerings and revamping the way they do business. But there is a lot that is working well in many of our public schools, and the best reforms will further explore and expand on those known successes. Corbett needs to stop trying to float school choice with hot air and put it on a solid foundation. He should build on the facts, not twist and dismiss them.

t is sad that Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee probably have created more residential construction jobs than President Obama’s jobs bill would have created. But there is a problem with what I call “disaster economics.” One example is home furnaces last a long time. Local heating contractors normally might replace a few furnaces a month. It might be a controversial thing to say, but they are, in a way, “disaster victims” too. People might say: Who cares about them? They are going to have more work than they can handle. That is my point. They might not have been flooded by water but soon will be “flooded” by flood victims. I do not know if the Small Business Administration has a disaster program to help contractors not flooded. Heating contractors should get assistance so they can expand operations, such as hiring temporary workers to do the work that is not actual plumbing: answering the phone and picking up materials. The cost of ordering many more furnaces could dramatically limit the work. Using local heating contractors is in the best interest of the disaster victims for

future servicing, and helping contractors to ramp up will get victims back in their homes sooner. Nick Souchik Pittston Township

Leighton’s leadership reason for another term

I

believe that Mayor Tom Leighton is a very dedicated leader who has done great things for the city of Wilkes-Barre. The downtown looks great, and there are many fine restaurants for lunch there. He has installed cameras at the playgrounds, making them safe for our children. Mayor Leighton has had several nuisance properties demolished, which has resulted in a safer city. He has held the line

DOONESBURY

on property taxes, and that is a big help for our residents, especially our senior citizens. The mayor has had many streets and lanes paved throughout the city, making driving conditions better. He worked nonstop for the residents during the recent flood, and he continues to help keep us safe after the flood. He is not a nine-to-five employee, as he works constantly for our city. Mayor Leighton always is a perfect gentleman. He accepts phone calls at all hours, and he (not his staff) returns calls without delay. I am more than happy to give Mayor Leighton my vote for another term, as he definitely deserves it. Lorraine Morgan Wilkes-Barre

Instead, he took the French francs he had left after that trip to New York City, converted them to dollars and visited De La Concha, a tobacconist and smoking lounge. “The man there showed me some pipes and spent about an hour talking to me about them,” Garr said. “I bought a fairly nice pipe and smoked my first bowl from a good pipe in Central Park.” From there, his interest grew. He started collecting pipes and even bought an estate of pipes, cleaned and fixed them and resold them. He learned how to store tobacco and even worked in a tobacco store. Garr also researched the health effects of smoking, and notes that unlike

looking forward to meeting the undergraduates who will receive support through our endowment and learning about their ambitions for the future.” Charles Davis, the chancellor of the Wilkes-Barre campus, said the Barrys’ generosity has been greatly appreciated and he’s glad their name will grace the scholarship. “The Rick and Sue Barry Trustee Scholarship has created important momentum toward Penn State Wilkes-Barre’s campaign goals, and we are deeply grateful for Rick and Sue’s leadership,” said Davis. “Their philanthropy has so often honored others, and I am delighted that this endowment will bear their name and honor their own extraordinary contributions to the success of our campus and our students.” While looking for colleges to attend in1976, he applied to Penn

club, which he helped found and now serves as president. Garr began smoking competitively in the United States and has placed and won at several competitions. After the formation of the United Pipe Smokers of America granted this country recognition by the international pipe smoking community and Americans were eligible for international competition, Garr also traveled to Europe to compete as well. Competitive pipe smokers all start the event with the same kind of pipe and the same amount of tobacco and supplies, he said. The object is to prepare and light the pipe within the allotted time and keep it burning as long as possible, something Garr said can be harder to do than you think. “When I went to Germany, I only lasted five minutes,” Garr said, noting that European pipe enthusiasts can keep their pipes smoking for hours.

houses and was receiving threats, verbal attacks and intimidating letters. Murphy and Leighton said they spoke with police Chief Gerald Dessoye, who recommended 24-hour security on both their homes, and the systems were immediately installed. Leighton said council approval was not needed because costs totaled less than $10,000. Murphy said two days after the 2004 incident, he took his family

State. He was asked which branch campus would be his second choice if not accepted at Main Campus. He noticed that the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus offered sports broadcasting, so he chose that one. He wasn’t so sure about college, but after two weeks, he said, he knew he had made the right choice. “I needed some confidence. They actually believed in me to the point that by the time I left I actually had enough belief in myself to be successful,” he said. “Everything really changed for me when I was here … I never forgot that.” Barry loved it there, but after two years, he was off to main campus. He recalled the final days at the Lehman Township campus and how he would be brought to tears just thinking about having to leave. He switched majors to political science and earned a bachelor’s degree. But politics wasn’t for him and he pursued a career in the financial industry that includ-

ed posts at Merrill Lynch, Robertson Stephens Investment Management, and other firms. He retired in 2009 as the managing member and portfolio manager of Eastbourne Capital Management, a San Rafael, Calif.-based investment firm he founded in 1999. A resident of San Rafael, he is also a part owner of the San Diego Padres major league baseball team. The scholarship gift comes at a time when it’s most needed. “Penn State Wilkes-Barre serves communities and families that have been hit hard by economic changes, and many of our students face extraordinary financial challenges in earning their degrees,” Davis said.

“Scholarships are essential to keeping our opportunities affordable and accessible, and the Rick and Sue Barry Trustee Scholarship will provide flexible resources that we can direct to students with the most urgent need.” “What it represents for students, really, is opportunity. I wanted to give students the opportunity I had,” Barry said just before the dinner began. Besides Barry and the 50 students who are benefiting from his financial gift this year, the dinner included 110 other students who were attending Penn State Wilkes-Barre on scholarship and some of the donors whose money funds those scholarships.

“The world record is held by Italians at three hours and thirty minutes,” said Garr. “I’m not sure any American has broken the two-hour level in competition,” he added, though he noted he has reached the two hour mark while practicing. Science of smoking Garr said a number of factors affect how long a pipe burns, ranging from the way the tobacco is prepared and packed into the bowl to the construction of the pipe. For example, his first “good” pipe that he bought in New York was made by a well-known pipe carver but wasn’t bored quite right. This led to moisture collecting in the pipe and “gurgling,” something Garr initially blamed on his technique but later discovered was because of the pipe’s construction. One reason pipes don’t stay lit is they get too hot, Garr said.

www.timesleader.com

“You don’t want it to get too hot because it can crack. When it gets too hot, it can mean you aren’t smoking it right or you don’t have it packed right.” “What you really want is for the pipe to smoke itself,” he said. “You’re just keeping it cool and egging it on.” Garr recounted a competition during which a Spanish smoker lit his pipe, set it down and left to go to the men’s room. “When he returned, his pipe was still producing smoke,” he said, his tone making it clear even to the non-smoker what an amazing accomplishment this is. His personal best in competition is one hour and 34 minutes, still far short of the times attained by European smokers. So even though he earned the trip to the Netherlands by winning a competition in Chicago in May, Garr said his goal in the Netherlands is “just not to embarrass myself.”

ployees or hire any new employees. “We’ve reduced spending wherever possible and eliminated jobs when necessary through attrition,” Leighton said. “We’ve reduced City Hall staffing by one-third since 2004.” The largest expenditure in the budget is for salaries at $18 million. Benefits for employees is second at $10.1 million. The third largest expenditure is for debt service at $6.4 million. On the revenue side, taxes account for the largest revenue stream at $24.5 million. Other revenue sources are: borrowing and financing, $7.1 million; charges for services, $5.2 million; intergovernmental, $3.4 million; licenses and permits, $1.4 million. Leighton said he relies on his department heads to spend

within their budgets and to increase efficiency with diminished resources. He said he and his senior staff have worked hard to maintain the services that residents expect without sacrificing quality or passing the cost onto them unnecessarily. There have been small increases in earned income tax and real estate transfer tax revenues, which the mayor said indicates people are returning to work and the housing market is improving. He said that is a hopeful sign for the city, but, he added, more work needs to be done to put the city on a solid foundation. Leighton, who is seeking his third term in November, said the 2012 budget “is a responsible portrait of where the city is financially and where it is going in the coming year.” “Despite the challenges that we face as a community, the city of Wilkes-Barre is on an upward path,” Leighton said. “Things are difficult but they will get better.”

out of town for a few days and, while they were gone, someone turned a security camera outside his home away from the sidewalk and broke several items near the curb, including flower pots. In a story The Times Leader published two days after the incident, Dessoye had said it was “more than just a threat against an individual,” but rather an attempt to terrorize public officials and affect city government. Regardless, Urban said, taxpayers shouldn’t foot the bill. “My husband (Stephen A. Urban) is a county commissioner. There are people that do not like him, often say things on the phone and hang up. I even get occasional crazy calls, but that doesn’t constitute me calling the county controller … and saying I need a security system and I want the county taxpayers to finance it,” she said. Leighton said he believes any government employee is entitled to additional security if law enforcement determines the level of threat is great enough and related to his or her job. Times Leader staff writer Bill O’Boyle contributed to this story.

no, this is wrong. We should not be supplying any type of security systems to any elected official or city employee on the taxpayers’ dime.” She said the reason security systems were installed “apparently stems from an event that took place … where J.J. Murphy’s neighbor had a party and one of the guests at this party mistakenly tried to enter his house.” “From what I understand, the police were called and flower pots were cracked. To me, that does not constitute … a security threat,” Urban said. But Murphy said that’s not what happened. Murphy said that on Nov. 17, 2004, while he was at work, a man posing as a city employee sent there by Murphy and the mayor to check basement pipes told Murphy’s wife through a locked screen door that he just came from the mayor’s house and tried to convince her to let him in.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: WEEK 7

Comets focus squarely on undefeated Mountaineers

WEEK 7 SCHEDULE

Today’s Games (7 p.m.) Berwick at Williamsport Coughlin at Pittston Area Hazleton Area at Wyoming Valley West Holy Redeemer at Wyoming Area Lake-Lehman at GAR Meyers at Hanover Area Northwest at Nanticoke Pocono Mountain West at Tunkhannock Saturday’s Game Crestwood at Dallas, 2 p.m.

Crestwood coach Greg Myers says his team is just taking season one game at a time. By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

There might be a reason to complain. Unbeaten Dallas on Saturday followed by once-beaten Wyoming Valley West the following Friday. Crestwood coach Greg Myers, though, is

taking the grueling two-game stretch in stride. Really, that’s all he and the Comets (5-1) can do as they head to Dallas (6-0) for a 2 p.m. game that will likely decide the Wyoming Valley Conference Division 3A championship. “It’s the schedule that was dealt to us,” Myers said. “It was very important we got off to the good start that we did because you could see these two games coming up on our schedule. We wish we could have gone into the Dallas game undefeated, but one loss isn’t so bad.

“There’s no doubt about it, that the Dallas game is the most important game on our schedule. Then to follow up with Valley West, which is very similar to the Dallas team, is going to say a lot about our team.” The same could be said for Dallas. The Mountaineers are coming off a 28-27 victory over Valley West that was both physically and emotionally exhausting. They are atop the District 2 Class 3A standings – 20 state points ahead of undefeated Valley View – and are a virtual lock for the postseason. But a loss here could mean losing a

home game or possibly home-field advantage throughout the D2-3A playoffs. “That’s difficult for us,” Dallas coach Ted Jackson said after the Valley West win. “We came out of it fairly healthy. It’s just going to be a focus thing for us. We have Crestwood here on the grass, too, so we’re happy about that. We’re going to be happy about this one, but that game is going to have a lot to do with who wins the Division 3A title and who plays home Week 11.” See FOOTBALL, Page 3B

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Dennis Wideman’s power-play goal 2:48 into overtime lifted the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. Wideman rifled a shot from just inside the right circle past Pittsburgh goalie Brent Johnson to keep Washington unbeaten in three games this season. Alexander Ovechkin scored his first goal of the season for the Capitals, who have won eight straight regular-season games in Pittsburgh. Tomas Vokoun bounced back from a shaky debut with Washington to finish with 39 saves. James Neal scored twice and Evgeni Malkin had two assists for the Penguins, who took their first non-shootout loss of the season. Devils 2, Kings 1 NEWARK, N.J. — Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise scored shootout goals and the New Jersey Devils won their second straight game, beating the Los Angeles Kings. Johan Hedberg, who replaced an injured Martin Brodeur at the start of the second period, made easy stops on Simon Gagne and Anze Kopitar on the Kings’ shootout chances to send Los Angeles to its second straight loss. Islanders 5, Lightning 1 UNIONDALE, N.Y. — John Tavares had two goals and two assists in the first period and New York ruined the return of former Islanders goalie Dwayne Roloson in a rout of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tavares was credited with his first goal of the season just 36 seconds in when Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman swatted in a rebound of his shot. His second of the night with 3:45 remaining in the first pushed the Islanders’ lead to 3-1. He also helped set up linemates Matt Moulson and P.A. Parenteau as New York led 4-1 through 20 minutes. Flames 4, Canadiens 1 MONTREAL — Miikka Kiprusoff got his team-record 263rd win and Rene Bourque scored twice, leading the Calgary Flames to a win over Montreal to spoil the Canadiens’ home opener of their 103rd season. Kiprusoff made 35 saves to move past Mike Vernon for the franchise record for victories by a goalie and Calgary got its first win in three games. Avalanche 7, Senators 1 OTTAWA — Joakim Lindstrom scored twice and JeanSebastien Giguere made 15 saves in his first start for Colorado to help the Avalanche rout the Ottawa Senators. Red Wings 2, Canucks 0 DETROIT — Jimmy Howard made 25 saves for his sixth career shutout and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Vancouver Canucks. Wild 2, Oilers 1, SO ST. PAUL, Minn. — Devin Setoguchi scored in the fourth round of the shootout, spoiling a strong night by Edmonton Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin and sending the Minnesota Wild to a victory.

Berwick (3-3) at Williamsport (2-4) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Berwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gary Campbell (123-47-1, 13th year); Williamsportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tom Gravish (63-69, 12th year) Last Meeting: Williamsport 21-17 in 2010 Scouting Berwick: Berwick won via rout for a second consecutive week, albeit against winless Tunkhannock. Two week ago, the Dawgs pounded Selinsgrove, a team depleted by suspensions. Still, those two wins put Berwick right back in the D2-3A playoff race. RB Jeremy Freeman recorded his third consecutive 100-yard game in the 35-13 victory over Tunkhannock. He has rushed for six TDs in the last three games after having three in the first three. QB Jared Pierce has been efficient passing and running the ball. Scouting Williamsport: It was gut check time for Williamsport last weekend and the Millionaires answered the call with a 20-14 overtime victory at Pittston Area. However, it might be too little too late to get back into the D2/4-11 Class 4A playoff race. Nonetheless, Williamsport bounced back after four consecutive losses, including two games where the Millionaires could have won. RB Devin Miller found running room for the first time in weeks, rushing for 121 yards. QB Sadiq Burkholder put some life into a dormant passing game. What To Expect: Berwick has more balance on offense unless Williamsport can keep the momentum passing the ball from last week. It looks like a close game on paper and should be on the field.

Coughlin (3-3) at Pittston Area (2-4) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Coughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ciro Cinti (32-29, 6th year); Pittston Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Barrett (2-4, 1st year) Last Meeting: Coughlin 26-16 win 2010 Scouting Coughlin: The Crusaders threw themselves back into the D2-3A playoff picture with a 24-21 victory over Stroudsburg. They now control their own destiny. Winâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em all and get in. The Stroudsburg game showed that Coughlin can handle a speedy opponent. It also showed the Crusaders could handle adversity based on the way they rallied for a win. The yardage was lopsided a bit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 390-297 in favor of Stroudsburg. But the Crusaders won the only stats that mattered, the final score. Scouting Pittston Area: The Patriots have lost four in a row, but aside from the blowout loss to Crestwood they were in every game. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20-14 loss to Williamsport might have ended any hope of making the D2-3A playoffs, especially because of what lies ahead. RB Justin Wilk rushed for 96 yards, but was held without a TD for the first time this season. QB Anthony Schwab has been efficient throwing the ball. However, Pittston Area hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached 100 passing yards in a game since Week 2. What To Expect: Coughlin faced two of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best quarterbacks the past two weeks. So if the Crusaders can make Pittston Area one dimensional, their running game could grind out a victory.

Hazleton Area (3-3) at Wyoming Valley West (5-1) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Hazleton Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim Drumheller (3-3, 1st year); Valley Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Keating (18-10, 3rd year) Last Meeting: Valley West 34-13 in 2010 Scouting Hazleton Area: After a scoreless first quarter, Hazleton Area surrendered 27 second-quarter points in its 48-14 loss to Crestwood last week. The pass defense was leaky again, allowing a season-high 169 yards. The run defense gave up a season-high 276 yards. The offense has done a solid job protecting the ball, with just one turnover over the last three games. QB Chad Hoffman has hit on 15-of-32 passes the last two games, but not for many yards and for no touchdowns. After a couple productive weeks, the running game took a step backward. Scouting Valley West: After an emotional 28-27 loss at Dallas, the Spartans have to crank it up against yet another rival. They may have to do so without two key players depending on how serious the injuries to RB Tashawn Bunch (shoulder) and lineman Pete Cwalina (leg) turn out to be. Still, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than enough talent to cause headaches for Hazleton Area, starting with QB Eugene Lewis. Derrick Simms will probably get more carries if Bunch canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go. Ironically, it was about this time last season Bunch began getting more work because of an injury. What To Expect: This was one of the most-anticipated games of the season until last year when the gap between the two programs widened. Hazleton Area has closed it a bit, but not enough to pull off an upset.

Lake-Lehman (3-3) at GAR (5-1) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Lehmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jerry Gilsky (10-7, 2nd year); Paul Wiedlich Jr. (16-3, 2nd year) Last Meeting: GAR 42-15 in 2010 Scouting Lehman: After a schedule top heavy with big hitters, Lehman recovered with three consecutive wins, albeit the competition wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that strong. The Black Knights are now in a game where they can make people take notice. Lehman tinkered with the offense after three consecutive losses and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid off. QB Jared Novitski is running more and passing less. WR/RB Nick Shelley has benefitted the most, scoring six TDs in the last three games. RBs Brady Butler and Dustin Jones have contributed as of late. Scouting GAR: QB Darrell Crawford continues to amaze. After scoring seven TDs two weeks ago, he threw for three and ran for four as the Grenadiers trampled Hanover Area 53-20. WR Shaliek Powell had two TD grabs and it was nice to see small but fast Mykel Dempsey back on the stat sheet. However, not everything went smoothly last week. The run defense was sliced up early and will need to play from the get-go against a more versatile rushing attack in Lehman. What To Expect: After defeating GAR 20-16 during the regular season last year, Lehman got trampled by the Grenadiers in the D2-2A playoffs. This game will fall somewhere in between with GAR taking a victory into next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showdown with Wyoming Area.

Meyers (1-5) at Hanover Area (2-4) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Corry Hanson (1-5, 1st year); Hanover Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Hummer (33-28, 6th year) Last Meeting: Hanover Area 26-18 in 2010 Scouting Meyers: Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 44-17 loss to Wyoming Area last week was typical of others this season. The Mohawks fell behind early and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mount much offense. There were some bright spots. QB Teaguen Labatch had his best game of the season, hitting on 9-of-14 passes for 87 yards and a score. TE Jalen Miller caught four passes for a second consecutive game, and getting the 6-foot-4 target more involved seems like a good idea. Scouting Hanover Area: Once again, the defense struggled to stop an opponent as the high-powered GAR attack defeated Hanover Area 53-20 last week. The 53 points were the most allowed by a Hawkeye team since Week 8 of the 2003 season when Hanover Area lost 56-14 to Meyers. There will be a respite today as Meyers doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the firepower of previous opponents. The Hanover Area offense should benefit as well, with RB Parrish Bennett expected to have a big day. What To Expect: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; struggling offense vs. Hanover Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggling defense. The Hawkeyes, though, have the edge in that matchup as well as when the team reverse roles.

Pocono Mountain West (1-5) at Tunkhannock (0-6) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jim McCarroll (35-45, 7th year); Tunkhannockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rod Azar (0-6, 1st year) Last Meeting: West 27-15 in 2010: Scouting West: The Panthers picked up their first win last week, defeating Pleasant Valley 14-7, and at the same time snapped a sixgame losing streak that started last year. RB Travon Pugh scored both touchdowns and finished with 223 rushing yards. Offensively, West has scored over 14 points once, in a 35-27 loss to East Stroudsburg North two weeks ago. Until last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive effort, the Panthers were allowing 26.2 points per game. Scouting Tunkhannock: A rough season got rougher the past two weeks as Tunkhannock played the entire second halves vs. Crestwood and Berwick under the mercy rule. They were outscored in the first halves of those games 77-0 and allowed each opponent to return an interception for a touchdown. RB Zack Edmundson had 85 rushing yards vs. Berwick, but for the most part neither the running game nor passing game has been clicking. What To Expect: Tunkhannock gives up entirely too many yards on the ground and with Pugh visiting it could be tough for the Tigers to get their first victory.

Holy Redeemer (0-6) at Wyoming Area (4-1) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Redeemerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Ostrowski (0-6, 1st year); Wyoming Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Randy Spencer (18-19, 4th year) Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 53-21 Scouting Redeemer: The Royals did what they were expected to do last week versus Nanticoke in a 52-36 loss. They threw the ball aplenty. It led to 335 yards through the air and a career day for WR Tom Cosgrove (4 rec., 105 yds., 2 TDs) and QB Jimmy Strickland. It also led to three interceptions. Redeemer will use two quarterbacks again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Strickland and David Gawlas, who is the bigger running threat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in hopes of hitting a few big plays. Wyoming Area, though, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t given up many big plays this season. Scouting Wyoming Area: Wyoming Area left last weekend with a 44-17 win and some bad blood between it and Meyers. Meyers coach Corry Hanson thought the Warriors were running up the score with a late first-half TD that made the score 44-3 at the break. The final was 44-17, so there goes that theory. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look for the Warriors to ease up at any time in the first half. Redeemer played GAR tough through the first half two weeks ago. They have GAR next week in a WVC Division 2A showdown, so getting a big lead and handing the game over to the reserves will be the plan. What To Expect: Another win for Wyoming Area by a comfortable margin.

Northwest (3-3) at Nanticoke (2-3) 7 p.m. today The Coaches: Northwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carl Majer (25-15, 4th year); Nanticokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Bruza (6-9, 2nd year) Last Meeting: Northwest 35-0 in 2010 Scouting Northwest: After upsetting Hanover Area two week ago, Northwest was flat against a surging Lake-Lehman squad, falling 35-7. The Rangers struggled with Lehmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s misdirection attack that kept their defense on the field too long. The offense had its worst performance of the season, running just 34 plays for 121 yards. RB Tony Politz entered off two consecutive impressive performances, but ended up with a team-high 36 yards. Scouting Nanticoke: Nanticoke RB Brian Maslowski finally broke out after being bottled up for three weeks. Maslowski had 197 yards and four TDs in a 53-26 victory over Holy Redeemer. Pat Hempel added 138 more on just 10 carries. The defense surrendered 335 yards in the air as Redeemer threw the ball 28 times, just seven times less than four other Nanticoke opponents combined. The Trojans, though, picked off three passes. What To Expect: The game will be won in the trenches. Whichever line can open holes for its quality back will be the winner.

Crestwood (5-1) at Dallas (6-0) 2 p.m. Saturday The Coaches: Crestwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greg Myers (38-42, 7th year); Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ted Jackson (223-80-3, 27th year) Last Meeting: Dallas 28-20 in 2010 Scouting Crestwood: After losing all five games in October last season, Crestwood is 2-0 this October. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 48-14 victory over Hazleton Area was quite impressive, with a lot of guys having their hands in the offensive attack. Eric Pickett hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carried the ball all season, yet had 63 yards on seven carries. Nick Powell led ballcarriers with 76 yards. The defense had another strong showing and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t given up much yardage via ground or air the past two games. However, this will be by far the unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest test of the season. Scouting Dallas: After an emotional 28-27 victory over rival Wyoming Valley West, the Mountaineers had little time to celebrate. Crestwood brings the same versatile offense into the game that the Spartans did. Dallas surrendered nearly 400 yards of offense to Valley West, but came up big when needed. Kris Rocograndi, Jason Simonovich and Brett Wanek recorded interceptions, while Bill Dixon and Zach Taylor pounced on fumbles. What To Expect: Each team possesses offensive attacks that can come at opponents from different directions. When thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, the winner is usually the team that makes the fewer defensive mistakes. This outcome will likely decide the WVC Division 3A title.

FOOTBALL Continued from Page 1B

As Dallas and Valley West were similar offensively, so are Dallas and Crestwood. Both have multi-dimensional attacks. Dallas was expected to have plenty of weapons from the get-go. Receivers Shane Dunn and Jason

Simonovich are arguably the best pair of wideouts in the WVC. Running back Jim Roccograndi has taken his game to another level this season. Playmaking wingback Paul Brace has returned to the lineup after missing five games with a foot injury. The veteran group has helped first-year starting quarterback Ryan Zapoticky enjoy an outstanding season. He leads the WVC with 13 TD passes and 822 passing

yards. Meanwhile, Crestwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense evolved as the season progressed. Senior quarterback Nick Aigeldinger carried the load early and is second to Zapoticky with eight touchdown passes and 694 passing yards. Running back Roger Legg broke out of the gate with three consecutive 100-yard games and five touchdowns. Legg hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put up similar num-

bers over the last three weeks, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason according to Myers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as healthy as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever been,â&#x20AC;? Myers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just we have the capability of using different personnel groups this year. Recently, his personnel group hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the one working for us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky because we can go with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a one-trick pony.â&#x20AC;? Kota Kishel and Nick Powell are listed as receivers on the roster, but

capable running the ball. So is running back Eric Pickett and fullback Nick Survilla. Like Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guys, all can catch the ball as well. So the difference could come down to the offensive lines. Each has a player selected to the Times Leader all-WVC team last year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dallas center F.J. Costantino and Crestwood guard Tony Morgante. Expected to join Constantino along the line are guards Logan

Bullock and Zach Taylor and tackles Ryan Monk and Buddy Shutlock. Morganteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s linemates are Danny Distasio, Dean Gregory, Bernie Popson and Will Womer. As for playing Valley West the following week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quite honestly, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even discussed playing Valley West yet,â&#x20AC;? Myers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discuss them until Sunday morning.â&#x20AC;?

H.S. GIRLS BASKETBALL

Lehman’s Spencer steps down as coach By VAN ROSE For The Times Leader

Jim Spencer, who built the LakeLehman girls basketball program into a perennial power, is resigning after eight years as the Black Knights’ head coach. Spencer said he sent text messages to the seniors on Wednesday night, informing them of his decision to leave the program. The school officially posted the coaching job on line Thursday. “It’s time to step down,” Spencer said. “I’ve been coaching basketball one time or another for 27 years, and I’ve sacrificed my family. I’m really

NASCAR

going to miss my players.” Spencer, 51, notched a 123-78 record during his tenure, which included trips to the state tournament the last Spencer two seasons. His most successful season was last year when the Black Knights went 22-4, including a loss to Springfield-Delco in the opening round of the state playoffs. “Last year we had a really good team, probably the best one I’ve ever coached,” said Spencer, who started

his coaching career in the early 1980s at Holy Child in Plymouth. “Two years ago we tied Nanticoke for the (Division III) first-half championship, and that propelled us to the overall championship. We went on to win 25 straight games against league opponents.” For the last four seasons, Lake-Lehman was led by All-State forward Selena Adamshick who was a three-time WVC scoring champion despite a career that was decimated by injuries. “Selena was a truly amazing player,” Spencer said. “We all know that she was talented, but the way she worked set the tone for everybody.

The thing that mattered most to her was winning. She was just a pleasure to coach.” The toughest crisis of Spencer’s career occurred three years ago when guard Julie Martin was killed in an auto accident the night before a game against Dallas. “Everybody in the whole valley supported us, and our team responded by beating Dallas (three days later),” Spencer said. Besides his team’s accomplishments, Spencer is most proud that he was a co-founder of the Lake-Lehman Faithful, a special rooting section consisting of students.

Crusaders advance to D-2 tennis tourney

Stewart wins pole in Charlotte

The Times Leader staff

WILKES-BARRE – Coughlin advanced to the District 2 Class 3A Girls Tennis Team Tournament with a 3-2 win over MMI on Thursday. The Crusaders (9-4) wrapped up the No. 5 seed for the event and will play Wallenpaupack in the quarterfinals next week. On Thursday, Coughlin defeated the Preppers as the match consisted of eight-game pro sets due to the inclement weather. No. 2 singles player Jenna Lutchko picked up a win for the Crusaders. The win was capped when doubles teams Dana Schneider and Grace Fazzi, and Eryn Harvey and Reba Shaffer earned victories.

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.C. — Tony Stewart took the pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway, outracing Matt Kenseth and points leader Carl Edwards on Thursday night. Stewart covered the 11⁄2-mile layout with a speed of 191.959 to start up front for the Bank of America 500 on Saturday night. Kenseth was tick slower at 191.918 mph while Edwards was next at 191.870 mph. It was Stewart’s first pole in more than year since Pocono in August of 2010 and his 13th overall. He also earned his first pole at Charlotte in 26 chances. Stewart stands seventh in the Chase for a Championship, 19 points behind Edwards. Drivers had anticipated a run at Elliott Sadler’s 2005 qualifying record of 193.216 after a superfast practice session. But speeds didn’t pick up when the sun went down. But Stewart said the air was more humid and robbed the cars of power and speed they anticipated. “That makes our lap that much better,” he said. Stewart, will try for just his second victory at Charlotte, the first coming in October 2003. After posting his lap, Stewart still had to outlast a dozen or so drivers he figured would edge past him. “Sitting there after that lap, felt like it was going to be a top five or six,” Stewart said. “It was definitely better than we thought.” Stewart opened the chase with victories in the first two races at Chicagoland and New Hampshire to move out front in the points race. But a 25th-place finish at Dover and a 15th-place run at Kansas the past two weekends dropped him back in the standings. Stewart hopes a landmark pole leads to a big showing in Charlotte. “It has definitely been a good start to the weekend,” he said. Kenseth is fifth in the points while Edwards holds a one-point lead over Kevin Harvick in the championship chase.

“I want to thank them for all of their support for eight years. I’ll always be a member of the Lake-Lehman Faithful.” Senior guard Nikki Sutliff said Spencer’s decision came as a complete shock to her as well as the other seniors. “I know he really tried hard to get back for us. It’s so close to the season that I thought he had decided to stay.” Spencer instilled a never-say-die attitude, Sutliff added. “He taught us that hard work pays off and to refuse to lose. I’m thankful for everything he did for us.”

Raiders’ deal for LB Curry complete ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders acquired linebacker Aaron Curry from the Seattle Seahawks, though it’s unclear if the former firstround pick will play this weekend. The trade, which sent Oakland’s seventh-round draft pick

in 2012 and a conditional fifthrounder in 2013 to Seattle, was completed Thursday after Curry passed a physical. A day after cleaning out his locker with the Seahawks, Curry posted a picture of himself wearing a Raiders shirt and hat on Twitter.

up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Allen Robinson had a good week. Brandon Moseby-Felder had a really good week. Those guys have to step up, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to it.â&#x20AC;? Sophomore Shawney Kersey, who has been listed as a starter all season by Penn State, has had a quiet first half of the season, but could also see more looks with Moye out. Though Moye will be difficult, if not impossible, to replace, the Lions will be getting reinforcements with the returns of Lynn (head), cornerback Stephon Morris (ankle) and tailback Brandon Beachum (foot). Morris had been practicing

all week after sitting out last week against Iowa. Lynn and Beachum had been in no-contact jerseys at the start of the week, but both are now working with the team normally. Beachum has missed the past three games with a sprain suffered in practice before the Eastern Michigan game. Lynn had to be immobilized and taken off the field on a cart during that contest after a head-to-head collision that left him with stingers down both of his arms. Lynn missed the next two games against Indiana and Iowa while undergoing periodic concussion-related tests. Morris and true freshman Adrian Amos filled in for him in his absence.

East Stroudsburg coach nears Division II milestone The Associated Press

A Pennsylvania college football coach is approaching a record for longevity this weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the one at Penn State. East Stroudsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Denny Douds will tie the Division II record for most games coached of 393 when he takes the sideline for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against C.W. Post. A 38-year head coaching veteran, Douds already has a resume full of distinctions. Most notably, his 230 wins are most in Pennsyl-

vania State Athletic Conference history. Doudsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; authoritative voice filled with energy when asked about the challenges of coaching his latest team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; East Stroudsburg is 1-5. But Douds, 70, would rather not talk about his own accomplishments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What impact does it have, or this or that,â&#x20AC;? he asked rhetorically in a phone interview Thursday about the record. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve listened to a lot of versions of the Star-Spangled Banner.â&#x20AC;?

DUKES Continued from Page 6B

back that he should still remain a part of the offense. Thanks to his increased workload, Dukes now ranks second on the team in rushing behind full-time starter Silas Redd. Dukes has picked up 190 yards on just 27 carries this year for an average of 7.0 yards per attempt. Only kicker Evan Lewis, who picked up an 8-yard gain on a fake field goal last week, has a higher average on the team. Though he has yet to reach the end zone yet this season, Dukes holds the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest run of the season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 30-yard burst in the opener against Indiana State. Teammates have lit up this week at the mention of his name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh! Dukes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big guy,â&#x20AC;? said senior tackle Chima Okoli, who was still on the defensive side of the ball when Dukes arrived on campus in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After awhile you get tired of having to tackle a 240-pound guy in the fourth quarter. Dukes is definitely a load.â&#x20AC;? He may be a load, but Dukes has worked to slim down since coming to Penn State. It was the main focus for him over the summer and Dukes said he currently weighs 235 pounds. Though the drop was less than

10 pounds overall, his body fat percentage has gone down and he said he feels much quicker without losing any of his power. With the weight now where he wants it, Dukesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next job is improving as a blocker if he wants to continue to see the field with Beachum returning this week. Dukesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability as a pass protector has been a concern, and it is

typically one of the first things Joe Paterno mentions when asked about him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I think Dukes is gonna be a good running back. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to get where he understands youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta block, too,â&#x20AC;? the Penn State coach said this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never done any of that. Came out of high school, a small high school, and a very dom-

inant football player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just gotta spend a little more time worried about his technique blocking. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got good hands, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite understand timing on passing and things like that.â&#x20AC;? The focus for Dukes has been putting those hands to use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to use my hands more and stay balanced (while blocking),â&#x20AC;? Duke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My tendency was not to use my hands â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use my shoulder more. That causes defenders to make a move on me and leads to bad plays.â&#x20AC;? Fortunately for Dukes, he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had many of those this season. Most of his mistakes have come during practice. Cleaning up some of those issues will help keep him on the field even as both Beachum and Green are worked back into the offense. Thanks to this recent stretch, the Penn State coaches know they have another back they can rely on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a chance to be really good,â&#x20AC;? Paterno said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta like the kid. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;Ś an easy guy to be around. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to coach. Sometimes he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow up because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think sometimes we do a good enough job of getting something across to him, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;Ś not sure what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking him to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting better all the time. I like Dukes. I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna be OK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a big back who can run.â&#x20AC;?

After a dismal start, Fighting Irish can enjoy off week on a big roll By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season got off to a gloomy start. There was the startling opening loss to South Florida when fans at Notre Dame Stadium had to be evacuated because of bad weather. Then came a crushing defeat at Michigan on a touchdown pass with two seconds remaining after the Wolverines had exposed the Irishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wobbly pass defense. Where to after 0-2? How about a four-game winning streak, starting with a triumph over Michigan State at

home, a close road victory at Pitt and then routs of Purdue and Air Force. Next up for the Irish (4-2) after the bye week is a home game against Southern Cal on Oct. 22. Coach Brian Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spread offense has performed the last two weeks the way he wanted it to from the outset â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with variety, balance and no mistakes. Sophomore quarterback Tommy Rees has progressed after taking over as the starter for senior Dayne Crist, who was yanked after just two quarters in the opener. Rees has played error-free football the last two weeks after nine turnovers in the first four

games and is 8-1 as a starter in his career. Michael Floyd, given a second chance by Kelly after his arrest on a drunken-driving charge in March, has emerged as perhaps the best receiver in college football. He already has 53 catches with four TDs this season, is averaging 12 yards per reception and holds most of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receiving records, including most catches (224), most TD receptions (32) and most yards (3,178). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those numbers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean much to him. He wants to win. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ferocious competitor,â&#x20AC;? Kelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the most impor-

tant thing for him is getting his degree and playing for Notre Dame. I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come to a realization that the rest is going to take care of itself if he just keeps his eyes on those two things.â&#x20AC;? The Irish rushing attack behind an experienced, physical and mobile offensive line has blossomed with Cierre Wood and Jonas Gray sharing the carries. And now sophomore quarterback Andrew Hendrix is in the mix as a change-of-pace quarterback who broke off a 78-yard run against Air Force. The defense, despite giving up 565 yards to Air Force last week, has been stingy with points for

the most part over the last month, and Manti Teâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;o has established himself as one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top linebackers. And the Irish have also worked in some of their promising freshmen like Stephon Tuitt and Aaron Lynch on defense and kick returner George Atkinson III on special teams. After a couple of practices, some players headed home this week to see their families and relax. Teâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;o and defensive end Ethan Johnson will also use the time to heal ankle injuries. Kelly said he would use the time for reflection and evaluation.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what we try to do ...is really look at the first six games and self-scout our efficiencies, what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing it, more-so than waxing philosophical about how great of a job, or how bad of a job, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done,â&#x20AC;? the second-year coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really focused on internally making sure that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any tendencies that can be taken advantage of. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of the immediate than anything down the road.â&#x20AC;? After a night game against the Trojans, the Irish have another home contest against Navy, a team that rocked them last year with its triple-option offense.

ALCS Continued from Page 1B

Texas cut it to 7-5 in the ninth and had Cruz on deck when Phil Coke retired Mike Napoli on a gameending groundout with two runners on. Coke got five outs for his first career postseason save. “Cokie came through for us,” Leyland said. “A little different situation for him obviously, but he was up to the challenge.” The Rangers get another chance to reach the World Series for the second straight season in Game 6 Saturday night at home. Derek Holland will start for Texas against Max Scherzer. A swift turn of events in the sixth helped Detroit pull ahead. The Tigers turned a bases-loaded double play to keep the score tied at 2, then opened the bottom half with a single, double, triple and homer — in order — to take a 6-2 lead. It was the first time four consecutive batters on one team hit for a “natural” cycle in a postseason

game, according to STATS LLC. The Rangers were the ones who seemed on the verge of breaking the game open in the sixth, loading the bases with one out. But then Ian Kinsler hit a grounder right to third baseman Brandon Inge, who merely had to step on the bag and throw to first for a double play. “We had him right there in the sixth. He got out of it,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “We missed a home run by inches, and they opened the game up by inches. Got a groundball double play, hits the bag, and from that point on, you know, boom, bam. Put up four runs.” Ryan Raburn led off the bottom half with a single, and Cabrera’s slow grounder bounced high off third base and down the line, putting Detroit ahead 3-2. Victor Martinez followed with a rare triple down the right-field line, scoring another run, and Young added a two-run homer. Raburn homered in the seventh to make it 7-2. After using Valverde and Joaquin Benoit for three straight days, Leyland announced before Game 5 that neither reliever would be available. He was hoping to make

it through the day with just Verlander and Coke, and that’s exactly what happened. “Well, it’s what we said before the game. So it gave everybody a chance to get all their secondguessing ready about it,” Leyland said. “That’s just the way it had to be today. We talked about it before the game and we did exactly what we felt we had to do to give ourselves any chance to win the series.” Tigers 7, Rangers 5 Detroit ab r h bi ab r h bi Kinsler 2b 4 2 1 0 AJcksn cf 4 0 0 0 Andrus ss 5 0 1 0 Raburn rf-lf 4 2 2 1 JHmltn cf 4 1 2 2 MiCarr 1b 2 1 1 1 MiYong dh 5 0 2 1 VMrtnz dh 4 1 1 1 ABeltre 3b 4 0 0 0 DYong lf 3 2 2 3 Napoli c-1b 4 1 2 0 Kelly rf 1 0 0 0 N.Cruz rf 4 1 1 2 JhPerlt ss 4 0 0 0 DvMrp lf 4 0 1 0 Inge 3b 3 0 1 0 Morlnd 1b 2 0 0 0 Avila c 4 1 1 1 Torreal ph-c 1 0 0 0 RSantg 2b 3 0 2 0 Totals 37 510 5 Totals 32 710 7 Texas.................................. 100 010 021 — 5 Detroit................................. 001 104 10x — 7 E—Andrus (1), R.Santiago (1).

an RBI and Wolf hit one of the Brewers’ five doubles. Braun is batting .471(16 for 34) in the postseason with two homers and nine RBIs. The Cardinals needed more heavy duty from their bullpen, too, after Kyle Lohse, pitching on 12 days’ rest, failed to make it out of the fifth. Albert Pujols was a quiet 1 for 4 for St. Louis, which was 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position and is 0 for15 after the first inning of Game 3. Wolf kept the Cardinals off-balance with soft tosses and retired 13 of his last 15 hitters in his fourth career postseason start. It was a huge improvement from Game 4 of the NL division series at Arizona in which he surrendered seven runs in three innings. Wolf also struggled in his last two regular season starts, allowing 10 runs in 11 2-3 innings. For the fourth straight game, the Cardinals had to lean heavily

on their relievers. Lohse sailed through three innings and then allowed three doubles and three runs to his last eight hitters, and was charged with three runs in 4 1-3 innings. St. Louis relievers have worked 17 1-3 innings in the series. Two of Cardinals manager Tony La Russa’s moves paid off. Bumped down one spot to fifth, Holliday hit his first postseason homer and doubled. Craig started in place of Lance Berkman, who was 3 for 32 lifetime against Wolf and had a minor right thigh bruise from getting hit by a pitch in Game 3. Craig hit his first career postseason homer made it 2-0 in the third. The Brewers tied it in the fourth with their first runs since the third inning of Game 3 on doubles by Prince Fielder and Jerry Hairston Jr. and an RBI single by Yuniesky Betancourt. Lohse was pulled after Nyjer Morgan doubled to start the fifth and advanced on a groundout, the heart of the order coming up. Braun’s single off Mitchell Boggs put the Brewers in front although second baseman Ryan Theriot’s

sprawling stop transformed Fielder’s smash into an inning-ending double play. Rickie Weeks singled and Hairston doubled again to open the sixth, and the Brewers soon had a two-run cushion. George Kottaras hit a grounder against a drawn-in infield off Arthur Rhodes, and Theriot bobbled the ball on a short hop for an error.

Greinke rekindled some animosity between Milwaukee and St. Louis before the NL championship series with comments about Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter, saying his Brewers teammates don’t much like the 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner. “They think his presence, his attitude out there sometimes is like a phony attitude,” Greinke said Saturday. “And then he yells at people. He just stares people down and stuff. And most pitchers just don’t do that.” Greinke, set to start Game 5 for Milwaukee on Friday, said Thursday that he caught flak from his own wife about those comments. Otherwise, he was in no mood to revisit them. “My wife likes to read stuff and then she gets mad, and she’s mad that I said it,” Greinke said. “But it just happened and don’t need to talk about it anymore.” POWER SURGE: Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz hit his fifth home run of the American League championship series in Game 5 at Detroit, setting a record for an LCS. “That’s special, but it will

ping 29 of 30 shots, including 18 in the second period. Eric Tangradi opened the scoring for the Penguins with a wrist shot at 5:10 of the first period. For most of the game, the Penguins seemed to be the better conditioned of the two teams, controlling the pace of the game -- especially when the line of Tangradi, Brian Gibbons and Niko Dimitrakos was on the ice. Gibbons was in the middle of action early and often, including an assist, along with Cody Chupp, of a Brian Strait goal at the 18:04 mark of the first period. Perhaps the most exciting flurry of the night came late in the second period with Rochester on a 5-on-3 power play at the 17:28 mark. Goalie Thiessen and Joey Mormina both lost their sticks as the Amerks were on the attack, but Brian Lerg stole the puck and went coast-to-coast to score a short-handed goal to put the Penguins up 4-0. Playing without head coach John Hynes, the Penguins were led by assistant coach Alan Nasreddine. They excelled in controlling the puck and playing the uptempo game that Hynes stresses. Last season’s AHL scoring

mean a lot more if we win the series,” Cruz said. On an 0-2 count, Cruz sent a 100 mph fastball from Justin Verlander to left field with a runner on in the eighth inning Thursday to pull Texas within three runs. It was Verlander’s 133rd and final pitch of the game. The Tigers held on to win 7-5, cutting the Rangers’ lead to 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Game 6 is Saturday in Texas. The home run was down the left-field line, and Cruz stood near the plate to follow the ball. Verlander said he had no problem with Cruz watching whether it would land fair or foul. “You’ve got to be careful of that guy now,” Verlander said. Cruz became the fifth player to hit five homers in a postseason series. Reggie Jackson, Ken Griffey Jr., Juan Gonzalez and Chase Utley were the others. Jackson (1977) and Utley (2009) accomplished the feat in the World Series. Gonzalez did it in only four games for the Rangers in the 1996 division series against the New York Yankees. Cruz’s teammate in Texas, Josh Hamilton, hit four homers in the ALCS last year against the Yankees. leader, Colin McDonald, scored his first goal of the year off a great pass from Phillip Samuelsson at 2:20 of the second period for the Penguins’ third goal. The Penguins kept the heat on into the third period as Dimitrakos scored his second goal of the season, off an assist from Tangradi and Gibbons The night got off to a nice start during the celebration of the Amerks past. New owner Terry Pegula, a Northeast Pennsylvania native and also the owner of the Buffalo Sabres, was instrumental in organizing the celebration of Rochester’s past. Rochester’s lone goal came at 16:27 of the third period on a shot by Marcus Foligno. The Penguins return home tonight to play Springfield and then host Binghamton on Saturday.

Airline will end flights from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to O’Hare on Nov. 17. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

PITTSTON TWP. – Local air travelers will have one fewer option from the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton International Airport next month after American Airlines discontinues flights to Chicago. American, which depending on the day flies one or two daily flights from the local airport to Chicago’s O’Hare International, plans to discontinue those flights on Nov. 17.

“Regrettably, the market did not perform as we had hoped, and did not prove to be profitable. In today’s environment of high fuel costs and weak demand for air travel, we have to tailor our service to match demand and allocate our resources where they can be most effective,” said Ed Martelle, an airline spokesman. The slashes are part of the company’s plan to adjust its late fall and winter schedule by cutting the carrier’s capacity by 3 percent. On Monday, the airline cited the weak economy, high fuel costs and more pilots retiring when it announced the cutbacks. Airport Director Barry J. Centini said the airline’s com-

ments “are disparaging for our local market” and he doesn’t believe they’re accurate. He said the 44-seat American planes were routinely at 90 percent capacity or better and were well ahead of the company’s average system-wide load. “Our performance has been very good,” Centini said. However, airport data shows passenger totals using the American flights from WilkesBarre to Chicago have been declining year-over-year in recent months. According to the August enplanement data, the Wilkes-Barre to Chicago flights were down 14.4 percent compared to August 2010. In July, the drop was even greater at 18.6 percent. The daily flights

and Urban said he has asked Centini to ask United if it would consider adding another daily flight. “We have started the process,” Centini said. “But you can’t just snap your fingers and make it happen.” He said passenger activity for United flights alone creates an intriguing sales pitch to the carrier. United’s local enplanements were up 13.5 percent in August compared to a year earlier and up 27.5 percent year-over-year in July. Mike Trevino, a United spokesman, said the company does not comment on future business plans.

Demolishing debt By BRADY DENNIS The Washington Post

CLEVELAND -- The sight of excavators tearing down vacant buildings has become common in this foreclosure-ravaged city, where the housing crisis hit early and hard. But the story behind the recent wave of demolitions is novel -- and cities around the country are taking notice. A handful of the nation’s largest banks have begun giving away scores of properties that are abandoned or otherwise at risk of languishing indefinitely and further dragging down already depressed neighborhoods. The banks have even been footing the bill for the demolitions -- as much as $7,500 a pop. Four years into the housing crisis, the ongoing expense of upkeep and taxes, along with costly code violations and the price of marketing the properties, has saddled banks with a heavy burden. It often has become cheaper to knock down decaying homes no one wants. The demolitions in some cases have paved the way for community gardens, church additions and parking lots. Even when the result is an

empty lot, it can be one less pockmark. The efforts have led other places to pursue similar laws to deal with their own foreclosure epidemics. New York passed a comparable measure this summer. Similar legislation is in the works in Georgia, Philadelphia and elsewhere. Cleveland has found progress in the sliver of common ground between the land bank’s mission and the interest of financial firms, including some that helped fuel the housing crisis through risky loans and lat-

er botched paperwork in carrying out foreclosures across the country. Bank of America and Wells Fargo announced plans this summer to donate more than 100 properties to the land bank. J.P. Morgan Chase also has made regular donations, and several other banks have given sporadically. Fannie Mae, the massive mortgage finance company seized by the federal government three years ago, began donating properties early on and now hands over about 30 properties a month, Frangos said.

Hedge founder gets 1 1 years in insider probe By LARRY NEUMEISTER Associated Press

NEW YORK — A former billionaire described by the government as “the modern face of illegal insider trading” was sentenced Thursday to 11 years in prison, the longest insider trading sentence ever but far short of the two decades sought. Galleon Group founder Raj Rajaratnam also was fined $10 million and or-

dered to forfeit $53.8 million by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Holwell, Rajaratnam who said he concluded that Rajaratnam made well over $50 million in profits from his illegal trades. “His crimes and the scope

of his crimes reflect a virus in our business culture that needs to be eradicated,” Holwell said. “When the integrity of the marketplace is called into question, the public suffers.” The Sri Lanka-born Rajaratnam, 54, was ordered to report to a yet-to-be-designated prison on Nov. 28. His lawyers asked that he be allowed to report to the medical facility at the Butner

Federal Correctional Complex in North Carolina. The judge gave Rajaratnam leniency, citing his need for a kidney transplant and his advanced diabetes. And he credited Rajaratnam’s charitable work. The sentencing culminates a series of convictions and sentencings that followed the October 2009 announcement of Rajaratnam’s arrest.

NEW YORK — BlackBerry services buzzed back to life across the world Thursday, after a three-day outage that interrupted email messages and Internet services for millions of customers. Research In Motion Ltd., the maker of the phones, said the system was back to normal early Thursday East Coast time. Some phones that have been out of touch for a long time may need to have their batteries pulled out and put back in to regain a connection, co-CEO Mike Lazaridis said on a conference call. A crucial link in BlackBerry’s European network failed Monday, and a backup also failed. That immediately cut off service for most users in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India, Chile, Brazil and Argentina. Although the underlying issues were quickly repaired, the system had built up a backlog of emails and messages that needed to be wound down. Meanwhile, messages destined for the affected countries were piling up at BlackBerry data centers in the rest of world, slowing service everywhere. By Wednesday, the outage had spread to the U.S. and Canada. Lazaridis and co-CEO Jim Balsillie said they had not made plans yet to compensate customers, but they are turning their attention to the question.

Gap shrinks U.S. stores By ANDREA CHANG Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Gap Inc. is closing stores and downsizing others in the U.S. as it focuses on international expansion, the San Francisco company said Thursday. The long-struggling apparel giant plans to reduce the number of Gap brand stores in North America to 700 by the end of 2013, a 34 percent decrease in the number of those stores when compared to the end of 2007. It didn’t specify which stores would close. Locally, Gap stores are in the Wyoming Valley Mall, the Viewmont Mall and the Shoppes at Montage. The company’s Old Navy brand will have roughly the same number of stores in North America, but the locations will continue to downsize in terms of square footage. By the end of fiscal year 2013, Old Navy “expects to potentially remove” another 1 million square feet. “In North America, sales are expected to grow modestly on its smaller, healthier specialty store fleet supplemented by sales growth in its online and outlet channels,” the company said in a statement.

We need another 2.85 inches of rain between now and the end of the year to make this the wettest year on record by one hundredth of an inch. I'd say there's an excellent chance to get that much more rain. More showers will be moving through our area today ahead of a cold front that'll arrive around 5 p.m. The chance for more rain will rapidly diminish early tonight as clearing sets in. Another cold front will pass on Saturday with gusty winds and a brief shower in spots. Sunday looks nicer and a little warmer. This October will likely end up being much warmer than normal. - Tom Clark
