KABUL, Afghanistan — A Taliban suicide bomber rammed a vehicle loaded with explosives into an armored NATO bus Saturday on a busy thoroughfare in Kabul, killing 17 people, including a dozen Americans, in the deadliest strike against the U.S.-led coalition in the Afghan capital since the war began. The blast occurred on the same day that a man wearing an Afghan army uniform killed three coalition troops, who were reportedly Australian, in the south — attacks that show the resiliency of the insurgency and are likely to raise new doubts about the unpopular 10-year-old war and the Western strategy of trying to talk peace with the Taliban. A spokesman for the fundamentalist Islamic movement, which was ousted in the 2001 invasion for its affiliation with alQaida, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the bomber had used 1,540 pounds of explosives.

When King’s hosted Wilkes on Saturday at McCarthy Stadium, the teams not only battled each other, they took on the elements as heavy, wet snow smothered the field. Combined with gusty winds, the weather was very much a factor as the teams combined for seven fumbles, two missed extra points and several slips on the slushy field in the Colonels’ 13-6 victory. With the win, Wilkes (3-4 overall, 3-3 MAC) received the Mayor’s Cup trophy for the 12th time in the 16-year history of the game. 1C

Rare October snowfall blankets the region By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

Who could have dreamt it – a white Halloween. Heavy, wet snow blanketed Luzerne County on Saturday, canceling holiday events and frustrating business owners hoping to cash in on the last-minute candy and costume trade. Several Halloween-themed businesses gearing up for their busiest weekend reported disap-

pointing sales as snowfall kept shoppers off the roads. Daelynn Farrell, manager at Spirit Halloween Superstore in the Kohl’s Plaza off Route 309, Wilkes-Barre Township, said crowds of last-minute costume shoppers were steady Saturday but were far from the throng workers expected. “I was told we were going to be INSIDE: For more snow photos, see Pages 14A, 16A

No.” “We were very busy yesterday,” she continued. “A lot of last night’s business was people anticipating what was going to happen today.” A storm moving up the East Coast dumped snow from Maryland to New England, behaving pretty much as predicted, said

Mobile home safety is questioned Formaldehyde levels in government-issued trailers for flood victims is an issue. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

Government-issued mobile homes are sprouting up in floodravaged regions around the Susquehanna River, with more than 150 promised to Luzerne County families. But are these new homes for

flood victims humane habitations or, as some have speculated, toxic tin cans? The Federal Emergency Management Agency in 2010 began selling off more than 100,000 travel trailers that had been provided to victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita in Louisiana and Mississippi. Two years earlier, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found higher than average levels of formaldehyde in the trailers. Becky Gillette, Formaldehyde

Campaign Director for national environmental-advocacy group Sierra Club, claims FEMA did not test formaldehyde levels in its new mobile housing units before purchasing them, and contends they are probably just as likely to seep formaldehyde. She said she is willing to pay to test interior air quality in mobile housing units arriving in Northeastern Pennsylvania. “Disaster victims are the last See TRAILERS, Page 4A

Story on candidate spending corrected A story on Page 1A of Saturday’s Times Leader incorrectly reported the amount of money Luzerne County judge candidate Lesa Gelb has spent on her campaign. Gelb’s campaign committee spent $164,812.22 on her election campaign to date, according to publicly filed campaign finance reports.

Gelb spent $104,500.21 from Jan. 1 to May 2, $1,797.03 from May 3 to June 6 and $58,514.98 from June 7 to Oct. 24. Gelb’s expenditures placed her fourth on the list of judicial candidates by expenditures, behind Fred Pierantoni, Mike Vough and Dick Hughes.

WEEKLY LOTTERY SUMMARY

Continued from Page 1A

The Taliban and related groups have staged more than a dozen major attacks in Kabul this year, including seven since June, in an apparent campaign to weaken confidence in the Afghan government as it prepares to take over its own security ahead of a 2014 deadline for the U.S. and other NATO countries to withdraw their troops or move them into support roles. Underscoring the difficulties ahead, the brazen assault occurred just hours after top Afghan and Western officials met in the heart of Kabul to discuss the second phase of shifting security responsibilities to Afghan forces in all or part of 17 of the country’s 34 provinces. Afghans already have the lead in the Afghan capital. Heavy black smoke poured from the burning wreckage of an armored personnel carrier, known as a Rhino, in Kabul after the bomber struck. The bus had been sandwiched in the middle of a convoy of mine-resistant military vehicles when it was hit along a four-lane highway often used by foreign military trainers in the southwestern part of Kabul. The landmark Darulaman Palace, the bombed-out seat of former Afghan kings, was the backdrop to the chaotic scene: Shrapnel, twisted pieces of metal and charred human remains littered the street. U.S. soldiers wept as they pulled bodies from the debris,

Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman Mohammad Zahir Azimi said officials were investigating whether the man who opened fire on a joint NATO-Afghan base in the restive southern Uruzgan province was an actual soldier or a militant in disguise.

Increase in state aid will offset pension fund obligations

I N

Local municipalities receive boost By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

Local municipalities are getting a one-time – and in many cases much needed – boost in state aid to offset pension fund obligations this year, totaling $3.7 million county-wide. Wilkes-Barre City will get the lion’s share, seeing a one-time boon of just over $1 million. The increased state aid comes courtesy of stepped up efforts to collect a 2 percent tax on out-of-state insurance com-

The crackdown essentially prompted those taxpayers to double their payments this year in order to comply with insurance prepayment mandates, providing a surge in money available for pension aid, which is handled by the auditor general’s office. But Auditor General Jack Wagner warned the money should not be used to plug gaps in general fund budgets or to boost benefits. “I strongly caution against using this

A press release from the state Auditor General’s office explained that the state department of revenue was more aggressive in collecting “estimated prepayments of insurance premiums owed by the out-of-state insurance company taxpayers.” Compliance with the prepayment mandate has been lax, in part because of ambiguous tax form instructions.

PLAINS TOWNSHIP – They’re in it for the long haul. Every weekend since the September flood, and more often in the weeks immediately following the deluge, Wilkes Professor Andy Miller has led teams of student, faculty and staff volunteers in cleaning up the mess. On Saturday, Miller was on the job again, leading a team of 20 students in scraping the muck from Dave Yudkowitz’s garage in Plainsville and pressure washing Yudkowitz’s belongings in the snow and near freezing temperatures. It may seem like a sacrifice, but Miller, a political science professor, said it’s the least he and his fellow volunteers can do.

Cocaine supplier sentenced

A Wapwallopen man investigators say was the main cocaine supplier in a drug ring was sentenced Friday to five to 10 years in state prison. Anthony Manchio, 51, was sentenced on 13 related charges he originally pleaded guilty to in April. Investigators said Manchio and 22 other members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club were charged in the ongoing investigation, known as Operation Avalanche. According to court records, the investigation began in July 2008 when agents with the Bureau of Narcotics Investigation unit received information that the group was selling large quantities of cocaine in the Wilkes-Barre area. Undercover agents raided the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, based in a clubhouse at 115 N. Main St., Ashley. Investigators said they made about 30 controlled cocaine purchases from members since July 2009. Thousands of calls were intercepted through court-authorized wiretaps that led agents to identify Manchio as the Outlaws’ main cocaine supplier.

It seems to me that they’ve turned there backs on all of the lessons of Katrina and Rita.”

You need to get people out.” Bethany Gibson, a freshman from Thompsontown, Juniata County, said the cleanups have provided a great hands-on learning experience. “I learn that if people actually combine and take the time, it’s amazing what you can do,” she said. “We’ve only been here a few hours, and look what we’ve done.” Miller said homeowners are starting to get back on their feet and his efforts are likely winding down, but he and the other Wilkes volunteers will be on the job as long as there’s a need. Flood victims in need of help cleaning up should contact their municipal government offices, which can put them in touch with Wilkes volunteers, Boone said.

Formaldehyde hazards Formaldehyde is an organic material used in a wide variety of products, including glues and resins used in pressed wood, carpeting and other home-construction materials. It is also found in cigarette smoke and smog. According to the CDC, inhaling formaldehyde can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin, sore throat, cough and nosebleeds. It is also a known carcinogen that is particularly linked to nose and throat cancer.FEMA spokesman Mike Sweet said the mobile housing units arriving in Northeastern Pennsylvania meet all construction standards set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and that residents moving into trailers should not worry about formaldehyde exposure. “All these housing units are built to HUD standards and these units are not being built specifically for FEMA,” Sweet said. “These are the same type of mobile homes people buy nationwide.” Sweet said he couldn’t say whether the trailers had been tested for formaldehyde, but that they have ventilation units and enough windows to maintain adequate ventilation. Gillette, however, claimed that nothing in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s guidelines has changed relative to formaldehyde and mobile homes since the CDC study, so it is likely that the new trailers contain just as much formaldehyde as the old ones.

ADVICE FOR MOBILE HOME RESIDENTS: For flood victims living in or planning to move into mobile housing units, the federal government recommends the following steps to protect from formaldehyde exposure: • Open windows as much as possible to let in fresh air • Try to keep the temperature inside mobile homes at the lowest comfortable setting • Run the air conditioner or dehumidifier to control mold • Spend as much time outdoors in fresh air as possible. This is especially important for families with children, elderly people or those with chronic diseases such as asthma. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

“The HUD standards were not good enough in Katrina, and they aren’t good enough now,” Gillette said. “The government has taken on the role of a landlord, and landlords are supposed to provide safe housing.” She is offering to purchase formaldehyde test kits for FEMA trailer residents willing to share the results with Sierra Club, adding that she is hoping to test at least five trailers. Gillette can be reached 479-253-6963 or through her website, www.toxictrailers.com. Gillette was one of the first to bring the issue of formaldehyde in the trailers to the government’s attention. Though she never lived in a FEMA housing unit, Gillette said her neighborhood in Ocean Springs, Miss., was flooded in

Hurricane Katrina and people all around her were living in the trailers. Issues in 2006 When some began complaining about respiratory problems and nosebleeds, she and the Sierra Club started testing the air quality in trailers in 2006 and began finding elevated formaldehyde levels. “A lot of my friends, a lot of fellow Sierra Club members were living in these trailers,” Gillette said. “It was impossible to ignore the problem. For us anyway, it was impossible.” The CDC responded by conducting its own tests. In December 2007 and January 2008, the CDC tested more than 500 trailers provided by FEMA to residents of Louisiana and Mississip-

y a d li o H e h T e t Celebra Season at Thanksgiving Feast November 24, 2011

pi who were displaced by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. CDC found levels of formaldehyde that were higher than would be expected inside most homes in the United States, and recommended FEMA move residents out of the trailers. CDC found an average level of 77 parts per billion in the tested units, and concentrations as high as 590 parts per billion. In all unit types tested, which included trailers, mobile homes and smaller park units, formaldehyde concentrations above 100 parts per billion were identified. Persons sensitive to formaldehyde may develop symptoms when exposed to levels above 100 parts per billion. CDC also predicted it likely underestimated formaldehyde levels because the tests were taken in winter and in trailers that were at least two years old. Formaldehyde levels were likely higher in newer trailers and in warmer conditions. Sweet said no travel trailers, which showed the highest concentrations of formaldehyde in the CDC study, are being sent to Pennsylvania. Rather, FEMA is bringing in mobile homes and park units. FEMA has approved temporary housing units for at least 488

Pennsylvania households in nine counties, with 165 promised to Luzerne County flood victims. They began arriving at a staging area in Plains Township about two weeks ago. Sweet said the housing units are being provided as a tertiary housing option for flood victims. FEMA would like to see flood victims remain in their homes when it is safe to do so, or stay in rental properties close to their homes. He said Luzerne County residents expressed an uncanny interest in the trailers in the weeks following the September flood; an oddity, in his experience. Family not concerned One family living in a FEMA park unit said they have had no concerns about the potential emissions. Beatrice and Stephen Solovey of Plains Township moved into a FEMA trailer several weeks ago after the single-story home they built in1964 was inundated in the flood. They said they haven’t been bothered by any smells or physical ailments since moving in, and aren’t concerned about formaldehyde. “It’s a place to sleep and a place to eat and a place to wash up,” Stephen Solovey said. “What more could you ask for?”

Bosnian homes raided after attack

Police search homes after gunman fires automatic weapon at U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo. By ALMIR ALIC and AIDA CERKEZ Associated Press

Massacred villagers finally laid to rest

GORNJA MAOCA, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Special police units raided homes Saturday in a Bosnian village linked to the gunman who fired an automatic weapon at the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo in what authorities called a terrorist attack. The raids came as 17 suspected associates of the shooter, all said to be members of the ultraconservative Wahhabi Muslim sect, were

briefly detained in Serbia. A convoy of police vehicles entered the isolated northern village of Gornja Maoca, known to be inhabited by many Wahhabis, and officers wearing black masks and camouflage uniforms surrounded several houses, according to an Associated Press video. The reporter saw the security forces enter some homes before officers asked him to leave. The gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Mevlid Jasarevic, is accused of shooting at the embassy building in Sarajevo for at least 30 minutes Friday, wounding a policeman guarding the facility, before a police sniper immobilized him with a shot in

his leg. An amateur video obtained by the AP shows what appears to be Jasarevic roaming a deserted intersection, waving his gun and occasionally turning toward the embassy building, shooting at the fence and facade. Another video caught him dropping on the ground after the sniper shot him. Jasarevic is believed to be a follower of the Wahhabi sect, and police said he visited Gornja Maoca several times this and last year. Both the gunman and the police officer were hospitalized and their wounds weren’t considered to be life-threatening, authorities said. Bosnian and Serbian police have coordinated the response to the embassy

attack, and the raids in Bosnia on Saturday were part of a joint operation. The village appeared blocked with police setting up checkpoints, stopping cars and searching them. Police were searching several locations in Bosnia and questioning people, State Prosecutor Dubravko Campara said. “We are cooperating with colleagues in Serbia, working with them and the U.S. Embassy,” he said. In Serbia, police said in a statement that as part of the detentions of suspects, some 18 houses were searched and computers and mobile phones confiscated. The 17 people held were later released after questioning, police said.

Relatives watch as a forensic anthropologist, not pictured, places the skeletal remains of Juan Bartolo Pedro into a coffin Thursday in Guatemala. Pedro is one of nine villagers massacred by guerrillas for collaborating with the Guatemalan Army in 1982. A forensics organization exhumed the bodies in 2005 and stored them until donors provided money for coffins and a burial ceremony, held Friday.

PHILADELPHIA

Power out due to snow

The unusually early snowstorm bringing heavy, wet snow to the East Coast has knocked out power to nearly 580,000 customers. Most are in Pennsylvania. Utilities there say 428,000 customers have lost power. PPL spokeswoman Lissette Santana says 200 crews were working to restore it and would be joined by 30 more crews from Kentucky and standby contractors if needed. The utility serves customers in northeast and central Pennsylvania. More than 160,000 customers lost power in Philadelphia and its suburbs Saturday afternoon. In Connecticut, utilities reported more than 125,000 without service. In New York, sporadic power outages are centered near Poughkeepsie and Newburgh. Scattered outages have been reported in New Jersey. And spokesman Todd Meyers says Potomac Edison, the dominant utility in western Maryland, had more than 26,000 outages. WASHINGTON

Obama cites income report

President Barack Obama is banking on a new report detailing the income disparity in the country as further evidence of the need for his $447 billion jobs bill. A report this past week by the Congressional Budget Office found that average after-tax income for the top 1 percent of U.S. households had increased by 275 percent over the past three decades. Middle-income households saw just a 40 percent rise. For those at the bottom of the economic scale, the jump was 18 percent. Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday that he would pay for his jobs plan with an added tax on people who make at least $1 million a year. JERUSALEM

Attack kills 7 militants

Israeli aircraft struck at Palestinian militants on Saturday who responded with a volley of rockets which rained on southern Israeli towns, Israeli and Palestinian officials said. Palestinian officials said that seven militants were killed while the Israelis reported several civilians injured. Exchanges of fire are common between southern Israel and the Gaza strip controlled by the militant Hamas group, but this is the worst one in months. Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Adham Abu Salmia said that seven people were killed and 15 injured in two separate attacks on militant targets. An Israeli military spokesman confirmed both strikes. SAN FRANCISCO

Society opposes legal pot

A medical society for addiction doctors has reiterated its opposition to marijuana legalization as its California chapter considers voicing its support for allowing and regulating adult use of the drug as a way to prevent its abuse by adolescents. Directors of the American Society for Addiction Medicine meeting in Washington are scheduled on Sunday to discuss a report from three of its top California members that recommends replacing the state’s besieged medical marijuana program with a system that treats and taxes pot like alcohol.

People wade through flood waters in Bangkok, Thailand, Saturday. The network of flood defenses erected to shield Thailand’s capital from the country’s worst floods in nearly 60 years was tested Saturday as coastal high tides hit their peak.

BANGKOK — Defenses shielding the center of Thailand’s capital from the nation’s worst floods in nearly 60 years mostly held at critical peak tides Saturday, as the waters began to recede after killing almost 400 people. But the threat to central Bangkok was not over, the prime minister said, and the city’s northern districts remained submerged along with much of the

the sea, with Bangkok lying in their path. The floods that have besieged central Thailand for weeks submerged entire towns across the country’s heartland and shuttered hundreds of factories over the last two months. “We have the good news that the situation in the central region has improved as runoff water gradually decreased,” she said. “I thank people and urge them to be more patient in case this weekend is significant because of the high tide.” Bangkok residents watched the city’s dikes and sandbag barriers warily as the

high tide pushing up the Chao Phraya River from the Gulf of Thailand peaked Saturday morning. It had been described as the greatest test of the capital’s flood defenses since the northern deluge first approached Bangkok more than three weeks ago. While some water doused streets and shops along the river, the tides fell short of forecast highs and there was no major breach. Higher than usual tides will continue through Monday, but are predicted to be lower than Saturday’s. City official Adisak Kantee said the city’s concrete barriers “are efficiently protecting Bangkok from deluge,” though he said smaller, private dikes might yet fail. “The situation is so far under control,” he said.

Qantas Airways grounds global fleet due to strikes Don, left, and Derry Dunsmore, of Mine Hill, N.J., wait at the Qantas counter as they try to reschedule their canceled flight to Sydney at Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles, Saturday.

By ROD McGUIRK Associated Press

CANBERRA, Australia — Qantas Airways grounded its global fleet Saturday, suddenly locking out striking workers after weeks of flight disruptions an executive said could close down the world’s 10th largest airline piece by piece. The Australian government called for an emergency arbitration hearing, which was adjourned early Sunday morning after hearing evidence from the unions and airline. It will resume Sunday afternoon when the government will argue that the airline be ordered to fly in Australia’s economic interests. Planes in the air continued to their destinations, and at least one taxiing flight stopped on the runway, a flier said. Among the stranded passengers are 17 world leaders attending a Commonwealth summit in the western city of Perth. When the grounding was announced, 36 international and 28 domestic Aus-

tralian flights were in the air, said a Qantas spokeswoman, who declined to be named citing company policy. Qantas said 108 airplanes were being grounded but did not say how many flights were involved. The spokeswoman could not confirm an Australian Broadcasting Corp. television report that 13,305 passengers were booked to

fly Qantas international flights within 24 hours of the grounding. The lockout was expected to have little impact in the United States. Only about 1,000 people fly daily between the United States and Australia, said aviation consultant Michael Boyd. “It’s not a big deal,” he said. Qantas is “not a huge player here.”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Occupy Nashville protesters said Saturday that they plan to continue challenging a new curfew used to disband their encampment, despite two nights of arrests. Tennessee state troopers arrested 26 people on Friday night, less than 24 hours after a predawn raid where 29 were arrested.

About 150 Occupy Nashville protesters gathered for a meeting Saturday, and several said they would again challenge the curfew. One posted new signs next to those announcing the curfew. The text was from Article 1 of the Tennessee Constitution, including the right to assemble. The Tennessean newspaper reported early Saturday morning (http://tnne.ws/vE2PXN) that Magistrate Tom Nelson told troopers delivering the protesters to jail that he could “find no authority anywhere for anyone to authorize a curfew anywhere on Legislative Plaza.” All 26 people arrested Friday night were charged with trespassing; two were also charged with public intoxication; and one was also charged with criminal impersonation, Department of Safety spokeswoman Jennifer Donnals said. The judicial commissioner refused to issue warrants for any of the charges. Officials said 72 troopers were involved in the curfew enforcement. The arrests came after a week of police crackdowns around the country on Occupy Wall Street activists, who have been protesting economic inequality and what they call corporate greed.

Andrew Mishkin

October 29, 2011

October 27, 2011

J. Mihalchik, of Carey B arbara Street, Ashley, passed away

early Saturday morning at St. Luke’s Villa, Heritage House, WilkesBarre, surrounded by her family and loved ones. Barbara was born in Paterson, N.J., on June 16, 1949. She was the daughter of the late Ted and Meta (Springman) Volinski. Barbara was a graduate of Hanover Area High School, Class of 1967, where she was also a cheerleader. She also graduated from WilkesBarre Area Vocational Technical School with perfect attendance as a Licensed Practical Nurse and was employed at many nursing homes throughout the Wyoming Valley, most recently at Golden Living Center-Summit in Wilkes-Barre. Barbara was a member of St. Leo’s/Holy Rosary Church in Ashley. She was also a member of the Ashley American Legion Post 673 Ladies Auxiliary and the Association of the Miraculous Medal. Barbara was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Carey Ann and brother, Tommy Volinski. Surviving are her husband of 40 years of marriage, John W. Mihalchik Sr., at home; daughter, Holly Milhalchik Greene, Charlotte, N.C.; sons, John W. Mihalchik Jr., WilkesBarre; Adam Mihalchik, Hanover Township; granddaughters, Meta Mihalchik, Chloe Green and Olivia Marie Mihalchik; grandsons, Maxwell Greene and Jack Mihalchik; sister, Laurie Volinski Stoodley; brothers, Mark and Teddy Volinski, and several nieces and nephews as well as several grand nieces and grand nephews also survive. Barbara was an avid music lover. She was responsible for introducing her children to some of the most influential music of her time. With vigor, she encouraged artistic expression. Barbara never missed a family function or special occasion. You could always expect a card, gift and her attendance at any and all events.

r. Andrew Mishkin, 88, a resM ident of the East End section of Wilkes-Barre, passed away

She had a unique ability to connect with young people from the cradle on up. She was an excellent listener and very easy to relate to and confide in. She has probably taken many secrets with her. Barbara had a very dry sense of humor and she and her husband drove each other crazy for 40 years, but when things were tough and the chips were down, they always formed an impenetrable bond. She lived for her children and grandchildren and will be missed with an irreplaceable void. Funeral services for Barbara will be held on Tuesday at 9 a.m. from the George A. Strish Inc. Funeral Home, 105 North Main Street, Ashley, with a Liturgy of the Word Service at 9:30 a.m. in St. Leo’s/Holy Rosary Church, Manhattan Street, Ashley, with the Rev. Thomas O’Malley officiating. Interment will be held in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Hanover Township. Family and friends may call on Monday from 5 to 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to any of the following; St. Leo’s Holy/Rosary Church, 33 Manhattan Street, Ashley, PA 18706; Medical Oncology Prescription Fund, 382 Pierce Street, Kingston, PA18704; Hospice Care of the VNA, St. Luke’s Villa, 80 East Northampton Street, WilkesBarre PA 18701.

peacefully Thursday evening at his residence in the presence of his loved ones following a brief illness. His two month illness took him to the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center and the Timber Ridge Health Care Center, all of Plains Township, prior to his passing. He was born in Wilkes-Barre, on January 25, 1923 to the late Nicholas and Anna (Handza) Mishkin. He was educated in the city schools, and was a member of Saint Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church, North WilkesBarre. A veteran of the Second World War, Mr. Mishkin proudly served our country in the Army Air Corps as an airborne paratrooper. Until his retirement, he was employed in the local manufacturing and construction industries, working with the former Shelborne Electronics Corporation, Sordoni Construction Company, Kanaar Corporation of Kingston and the Chamberlain Corporation in Scranton, where he manufactured shells for the United States Army. He is remembered by family and friends as being an avid hunter, reader and prolific speaker, and was an expert marksman. His talents accumulated him many trophies and awards as a Marksman First Class, and previously taught the Wilkes-Barre City Police Department the art of sharpshooting. He also produced and distributed bullets to several police officers and local departments. In addition, he helped build and operate several local shooting ranges. He was a proud member of the National Rifle Association. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters

Mrs. Betty Hargraves and Ms. Ruth Mishkin Handza. Surviving are his niece, Pastor Deborah Ann Hargraves of Bear Creek Township; brother-in-law, Mr. Franklin C. Hargraves Jr., also of Bear Creek Township; his caregiver for the past 10 years, Mrs. Linda Carr of West Wyoming, several cousins. Funeral services for Mr. Mishkin will be conducted on Tuesday at 2 p.m. from the John V. Morris Funeral Home, 625 North Main Street, WilkesBarre, followed by services at 2:30 p.m. in Saint Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church parlors with the Reverend Gary John Scharrer, his pastor, officiating. Interment will be private and at the convenience of his family in Maple Hill Cemetery, Hanover Township.

Police keeping Lego man The Associated Press

SARASOTA, Fla. — Lego man is going to stay in police custody for three months. Lego man, a 100-pound, 8-foottall sculpture, didn’t do anything wrong except wash up on a Florida beach. Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight says his office will hold the fiberglass sculpture for 90 days just like all other lost and found property. During that time, authorities will try to determine who the owner is. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported that the local tourism bureau had hoped to use the Lego man to promote the area, but

Happy 12th Wedding Anniversary In Heaven 10/30/99

Douglas Webb

Everything comes and goes each night I am alone, I can’t seem to think clearly. I am left here on my own. I walk down the crowded avenue, people all around. Something is not here that I miss I look inside myself, there is only emptiness. Or I can walk alone on a lonely road, No one here by my side. I could probably make it through. I have everything I need to get by. Except, the one thing missing in my life “Is You.”

Sadly missed and loved, Wife Joanne

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • John Alleva, 25, of New Mallery Place reported Friday his bank card was used to make unauthorized purchases in a Walmart in Texas. • Joseph Edwards, 60, of Midland Court was charged Friday with public drunkenness and retail theft for allegedly stealing a bottle of vodka from the state Wine and Spirits store on South Main Street. • Michael Filipski, of West Ross Street, reported Thursday his debit card was used to make an unauthorized purchase.

Luca in 2007. Media salvos Salavantis’ campaign has included a commercial and radio advertisements alleging Musto Carroll did nothing to protect juveniles from the “kids for cash” scandal and that the district attorney defended the decisions of former Judge Mark Ciavarella. Salavantis cites a brief written by Musto Carroll and Assistant District Attorney Frank Barletta in May 2008, in which the prosecutors ask the state Supreme Court to deny the request of three specific juveniles for a hearing after they alleged their rights were violated by Ciavarella. “Elections are about accountability, and (Musto Carroll) needs to explain to the people of Luzerne County why she specifically argued that the Supreme Court should uphold the convictions of three juveniles despite the fact that they had no legal representation,” Salavantis said in a recent press release. Salavantis said in an interview that Musto Carroll should have been in the courtrooms where juveniles were and protected their rights. Salavantis even alleges in a TV ad that Musto Carroll didn’t bother to take a “three-minute ride” from the main courthouse to another county building to check on juvenile proceedings. “It’s been one thing after another,” Salavantis charged. Salavantis has also questioned Musto Carroll’s “know-nothing” approach to what went on in Ciavarella’s courtrooms and said what the district attorney has done in response to the scandal – including assigning specific attorneys to juvenile court and several programs – is “too little, too late.” Musto Carroll told The Times Leader endorsement board there is a “lack of understanding as to what occurred to say that people in the system should have known something.” Musto Carroll said inside the courtroom, what Ciavarella did was fail to put the juveniles right to waive their counsel on the record. Musto Carroll said assistant district attorneys and public defenders did not see red flags or any change in the courtroom. But outside the courtroom, she said, is where Ciavarella’s crimes

occurred, citing the payments he took for placing juveniles in a local detention center. Musto Carroll also responded to her May 2008 filing, stating the juveniles did not follow proper procedure when asking the Supreme Court to hear their case. Musto Carroll said a lower court should have heard the juveniles’ complaints first, and then a higher court, and that proper procedure wasn’t followed. Ultimately, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed with us,” Musto Carroll said. “I have to enforce the rules and the law. Under the law, (the original request by the juveniles) was not the right avenue to take.” Musto Carroll said she brought

in the District Attorney’s Office, and said she has served in every capacity an attorney can there. The mother of three said what qualifies her to continue in the position is that she has been doing the job for the last four years. “There’s a choice to make,” Musto Carroll said. “Do you want someone who has been an attorney for 26 years, who has lived in this community their entire life, who has raised a family, who has seen these issues, who has tried cases? Or someone who has made negative accusations. I think voters have more sense.” A 2009 law school graduate, Salavantis works for an insurance deExperience cited fense firm and in her own practice.

the handful of juveniles who made the request for hearings back before a county judge and that some still did not want an attorney to represent them. “I agreed to vacate all of those convictions because I believed it was the right thing to do,” Musto Carroll said. The incumbent said Salavantis’ accusations are baseless and are a lack of understanding. “I think the most important question is what qualifies anyone to sit as a district attorney and do this job,” Musto Carroll said. “Not just her hurling mud and having a negative campaign.”

Salavantis said she became interested in law because she was intrigued by the “vast ways and abilities of attorneys to solve problems.” She said she observed her father’s attorney, Jerome Cohen, a former district attorney, and admired his work. She handles a variety of cases, including family, real estate and some criminal work, and said she is in and out of the courtroom on a daily basis, filing court papers and conducting depositions. Salavantis completed her law school externship with Cohen and worked for him after she was admitted to the bar in 2009. She has also been an associate of attorney Robert Panowicz and his firm for about a year. Panowicz’s daughter, Megan, is involved in a criminal case in Lu-

zerne County Court, and Salavantis said she returned money Robert Panowicz donated to her campaign to avoid any perception of impropriety if she were elected. She also said she would forward the case to the state Attorney General’s Office to further ensure fairness. Salavantis admitted in a recent interview that she has not tried a criminal case and does not have much experience in criminal law, but that she can still run the office efficiently. Factoring into her decision to run was the fact that no one – including experienced prosecutors who work for Musto Carroll – was entering the race. Salavantis said she did not think it was right that an incumbent go unopposed in both the primary and general elections.

meaning they had less money than needed to meet all obligations. A fund is minimally distressed at 70 percent to 89 percent of full funding, and severely distressed if it has less than half money needed. All of which means there will be scant incentive in most municipalities to use the one-time bonus for anything beyond pension obligations that are already hard to match. Hazleton Mayor Joe Yannuzzi conceded as much. The city will see state aid jump from $617,201 last year to a bit more than $1 million this year, a 63 percent increase. While grateful for a windfall that, at first blush, sounds impressive, Yannuzzi noted the city’s minimum mandated payment for the police pension alone is $2.7 million, with another $1.8 million due for firefighters. “When you look at the totals, the increase is only about 10 percent of what we owe,” Yannuzzi said. As the county’s two biggest cities, Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton will see the biggest dollar increases. But the formula for divvying up state aid creates considerable variation in percentage terms. Salem Township, for example, will see its state aid spike from $36,362 to $90,308 – a 148 percent increase. Conyngham borough, on the other extreme, will see a modest climb from $29,271 to $32,173, not quite a 10 percent change. All told, the state will dole out $132.6 million more in pension aid this year than last. But the

When the administration sought a new outreach program, the duo researched ideas and set up a committee to implement them here, with the help of a $25,000 earmark from the School Board. Owens and Thiemann-Welgosh launched a flurry of outreach programs including a monthly bulletin that highlights a specific issue. The October bulletin, for example, covered bullying, beginning with a definition, bullying signs, and the district bullying policy. The bulletin provides advice to parents in handling bullying and a list of community agencies that can help. The two have also launched a pilot program encouraging “positive behavior” at one elementary school, outreach efforts to connect teachers and students to social service agencies, and an adult mentoring program for students at Meyers High School. “We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel,” Owens said. “There are a lot of things the district is doing, but only in some schools.” For example, two elementary schools annually invite a fire safety truck to visit the school so students can learn how to spot and escape fires, an idea that could be expanded to all ele-

Store surveillance enabled police to identify Harvey and police located him in a residence on Logan Street where he was taken into custody. • Zarinah Muhaamad of McLean Street was charged with harassment Friday night after she allegedly struck Hassan Lindsay of West Division Street, the father of their children, during an argument. • Three people face weapons and alcohol-related charges after a traffic stop Saturday morning

strumental in putting the event together and was lauded by her employees and volunteers. "Cary really works hard on this event," said Deiss. "This is ‘her baby.’ " Many of the attendees of the event took time to tour the facility and to view the animals that were available for adoption. The lobby was filled with people reflecting on the need for concerned families to adopt the animals and on how attractive and well-kept the animals were. "It’s really all about a love for the animals," said volunteer Sandy Ansell. "That is why we work so hard to make these types of events possible."

Offering free snacks seems to work. “Food is always a good motivator,” Owens said with a laugh.

During a search of the vehicle police found a gun under the front passenger seat of the car driven by Juan Jose Hernandez of Parkview Circle. Hernandez was charged with driving under the influence, furnishing alcohol to minors and a person not to possess a firearm. His passengers, Pool Perdomo-Roastenilly of Logan Street and William Shotwell of Howard Street were charged with underage drinking and firearms possession. • Thomas Edsell of Wyalusing reported Saturday that a lock was cut on a tool box on his vehicle parked behind the Ramada Inn on Public Square and 200 feet of welding metal valued at $506 was stolen. • Nicholas Brisk, 57, of South River Street reported Friday his bank card was used to make unauthorized purchases in Hammond, Ind. • Christina Solomon, of Glenn Street, reported Thursday her debit card was used to make an unauthorized purchase.

A big part of the diverse effort is to change parent and student attitudes toward school employees and administrators. “We really want to help the families to look at the school as some place they can turn to when they need assistance,” Thiemann-Welgosh.

A large group of people dressed as zombies participated in the Second Annual Zombie Walk from Kirby Park to Public Square.

Snow didn’t stop these zombies from their mission to travel to Public Square from Kirby Park for the Second Annual Zombie Walk as part of a Halloween celebration.

Crates of apples sit as the snow begins to fall at Brace’s Orchard in Dallas. Apple picking ended early in the afternoon due to the snowfall, but the farm was still open to buy apples, cider, doughnuts and other treats.

Mountain Top, 6 inches, and Moscow in Lackawanna County 4.5 inches. The storm that started before noon was expected to end by 9 p.m., said Lovejoy. The forecast for today was brighter, with a high in the mid-40s, “and there’ll be some sunshine,” he added. Logan Darling, a cashier at Dymonds Farm Market & Bakery in Kingston Township, said pumpkin sales were much slower than expected Saturday. “It’s usually pretty busy,” Darling said, “I just think people just don’t want to come out with the roads.” Slippery conditions caused numerous accidents and closed roads around the county. Vehicle accidents were reported on Freeland Mountain Road in Freeland,

Lower Demunds Road in Dallas, Route 315 in Laflin and Interstate 81 southbound at the Hazleton South Beltway exit. Interstate 80 westbound between the Mountain Top/Hazleton exit 262 and the White Haven/Freeland exit 273 was closed for several hours Saturday night because of a tractor-trailer crash. The heavy, wet snow caused tree limbs and branches to bring down power lines, causing outages throughout Luzerne County. PPL Electric had 1,880 customers without power around 8 p.m. and 1,484 were in the Avoca area, according to the utility’s website. In Dorrance Township, 329 customers were affected. The weather forced the rescheduling of several Halloween events Saturday. The Downtown Wilkes-Barre Ghost Tour planned for Saturday by the Luzerne County Historical Society was rescheduled for this Friday and Saturday, and The Shoppes at Montage Halloween Trick or Treat and Parade was res-

cheduled for noon to 2 p.m. today. The snow also shut down spook houses around the county. The Carnival of Souls haunted house in Mountain Top, Broken Hearts Asylum in Lehman Township and Gravestone Manor in Plains Township were all closed Saturday night. “I’ve never seen anything like this, and I’ve been doing this 13 years,” Gravestone Manor project coordinator Rick Markham said. “It looks more like Christmas than Halloween… We’ve talked about for years about doing a Christmasthemed haunted house, so we might get our chance.” Carnival of Souls and Gravestone Manor both said they plan to open tonight; Broken Hearts Asylum could not be reached for comment. But the cold wasn’t enough to keep the “dead” in their graves, as roughly 30 locals dressed as zombies limped from Kirby Park to Public Square in Wilkes-Barre Saturday afternoon in the second annual Halloween zombie walk.

Comic industry wrote book on horror stories

Favorite place to vacation? “Goa, India.” Always in the fridge? “Seltzer water for me, apple juice for Oliver and eggs for Bhanu. If we don’t have those three things, we’re not happy people.” First car? “1997 navy blue Volkswagen Jetta.” Favorite TV show? “I love ‘Modern Family.’ I think it shows how everyone can be different, yet still be a family.” Favorite quote? “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” — John Steinbeck. Proudest professional moment? “Honestly, it’s every day. It’s really humbling and awesome to see the restaurant fill up with people every single day. It’s regulars that support us all the time, and new faces all the time. I’m amazed and in awe every day that I am where I am. I wake up in the morning and ask ‘Is this really all happening?’ It’s pretty cool. Restaurants are major, major gambles, and we rolled the dice. And I’m glad we did.”

he little grocery store’s heavy wooden front door creaks as I push it open, momentarily startling me. It’s sure not like the “whoof” sound of today’s automatic entrances. But I can’t betray myself by looking ill at ease here. If I’m found out, well, who knows what these people of 1952 will do to a time traveler. Ah, there it is — the magazine rack. I see lots of grown-up stuff like “Look,” “True Confessions,” “Modern Screen,” as well as the gutsier “Police Gazette,” “Argosy” and “Confidential.” But they’re not what I’m after. Over to the right, on a separate rack, is my quarry. I’m about to plunge into the colorful comic books when suddenly I look down and my heart skips a beat. Let’s see, they’ve got “The Vault of Horror,” “The Haunt of Fear,” “Weird Science,” “Detective Comics” — wow, a treasure trove of the good reads of six decades ago. Since they’re just 10 cents apiece I can afford to do what no kid alive can — plunk down a $5 bill and walk out with an armful of the mags. From the corner of my eye I can see the storekeeper watching, probably wondering what a gray-haired adult is doing in the comics section. So I smile and mumble “good afternoon.” Placated, he continues putting cans of string beans up on a high shelf with a long wooden grabber tool. Finally I lug my stack of purchases to the counter and the guy is all ready to open up the huge metal cash register when suddenly there’s a ringing sound. Patting the cell phone, I stammer “Er, ah, sir, I work for the government and, you know, well, ahem…” Oh, no! I’m waking up in my living room recliner. I’m so upset I don’t even answer the phone. It’s probably someone trying to sell me a subscription to “Patio Gardener’s Quarterly,” with a discount if I get it for three years. I think I know what’s going on. The lengthening shadows of autumn always make me think back to the days of coming home from school and rushing down to the store to pick up the latest colorful tales of spacemen or otherworldly creatures or heroic crime fighters. Actually, no one who enjoyed what cultural historians now call “the Golden Age” of American comic books can forget the experience. It was an explosive time of creativity, populated by some of the best storytellers and graphic artists ever to put ink on paper. Sadly, it all came to an end when in 1954 psychiatrist Dr. Frederic Wertham published “Seduction of the Innocent,” a book that portrayed everything edgier than “The Adventures of Donald Duck” as so violent and sadistic that it warped children’s minds and risked turning them into blood-drinking psychopaths. The result was Congressional hearings and the Comics Code Authority, a self-policing agency that “tamed” the comics industry. It would not recover until the cultural change of the 1960s spawned Stan Lee and Marvel Comics. For the more intellectually adventurous kids of the 1950s, though, the party had been shut down early and all the interesting guests sent packing. Today some of those old comics are available in paperback reprints, orderable online. But that doesn’t bring back the exciting days or the mental voyages that should have happened. And that’s a real horror story this Halloween.

Ruben Pardo, 69, who runs the elevator inside the Wishire Tower building in the Miracle Mile section of Los Angeles, Calif., says goodbye to Yuko Kitchen after giving her a ride back down to the lobby.

OS ANGELES — The loft-like offices at 5514 Wilshire Blvd. are largely the domain of the young, who work in jeans and T-shirts at flat-panel screens. They are Web branders, search engine optimizers, e-tailers of underground clothing lines. They do the virtual jobs that became jobs only recently. Ruben Pardo works in the building, too, in a job that dates to the late 19th century. Pardo operates one of the last manual elevators in Los Angeles. The young people are not easily impressed — but something about Pardo awes them. Each morning, the 69-year-old arrives at the Art Deco tower in wool trousers, a button-down shirt and a sweater vest. Six days a week, for just over half his life, he has been steering the same 6-foot-by-8-foot car up and down the same 11 floors. “He’s been in this elevator longer than I’ve been on the planet,” said Mani Nabavi of digitalgravel.com on the fifth floor, who turned 35 just after Pardo’s 35th anniversary. Young people come. Young people go. Eleven hours each weekday and nine hours each Saturday, Pardo greets them warmly and transports them to and from airy work spaces with concrete floors and views of the ocean, downtown and the Hollywood sign. His cushioned, charcoal-gray cross trainers put bounce in his step. His voice dances with the lilt of an old-time 78. “Hello, Matt!” he calls out, stretching each syllable. “Good mooor-ning, Victor!” “How’s life?” they ask. See ELEVATOR, Page 13B

MEET ABBY BILLICK SINGH CLARK VAN ORDEN/ THE TIMES LEADER

A

bby Billek Singh is the owner and operator of Canteen 900 in Forty Fort. Singh, 30, is a graduate of Wyoming Valley West High School and New York University, where she received a degree in food studies and nutrition. She and her husband, Bhanu, have a son, Oliver, 3. They live in Dallas.

Your restaurant noted its first anniversary recently. What first led to your interest in culinary art? “It was all in the cards. My brother and I played ‘kitchen’ all our lives while we were growing up. It’s the only thing we ever did. There was no other route. Even if I thought about a different route, food is where it always came back to.” You’ve got a young business, but it’s already a very successful business. Why do you think that is? “Good solid people that make magic happen every single day. We’re not open seven days, but we do a lot of private parties, so a lot of times we all work seven days in a row for a month straight. And I couldn’t do it without my brother, Drew, and my chef, John. There’s so many people that make the restaurant what it is and make it tick every single day. It’s a small staff. We’re literally just six people, but they’re all so important to me. They’ve become my family.” What’s your favorite item on your own menu? “I love sandwiches. You can

basically put anything between two pieces of bread, and it can be awesome. There’s so many breads to choose from, there’s so many different spreads, and all of these types of vegetables and really great meats and really great cheeses. If you pick really nice product and make really great sandwiches, it’s always going to taste good.” What do you enjoy in your free time? “I spend every ounce of my free time with my son. My time with Oliver is really special. It’s all about Oliver.” Music? “I love Johnny Cash. He’s so full of soul, and he’s so real. He didn’t have the easiest of lives, but I really like the emotion that his music shows.” Hobbies? “I collect cookbooks. I have a really large collection at home. I’ve been collecting them forever.” Favorite food? “I like any food that has lots of flavor. Lots of flavor, lots of herbs and lots of spices. I like something with a punch.” Favorite city? “New York. I lived there for 14 years. I met my husband there. Oliver was born in Manhattan. We still have an apartment there. I worked at a culinary school there for five years, and I still go back to teach once a month. It’s my city.”

Ruben Pardo takes a coffee break from his duties as one of the last elevator operators in front of the building where he works in Los Angeles, Calif.

ELEVATOR Continued from Page 1B

“Up and down,” he quips. Pardo lives in El Sereno, Calif. — three bus rides and a subway trip away. He is in the elevator when the young people show up and when they leave. Again and again, he goes through the motions — yanking the heavy outer doors, stretching the safety gate, steering the car while counting the floors as doors flash by. And day in, day out, this small man with thin salt-and-pepper hair exudes a joy that leaves his passengers marveling. Luis Zavala, a 33-year-old Web graphic designer, works at the Ace Gallery on 2. Sometimes, he said, he drags his way into the day. As for Pardo, “It’s like a glass of fresh water every morning. I don’t know how he does it, but every day for him just seems to be a bright opportunity for something.” “Good morning, Saaaa-mi!” “Good morning, Ruben.” “How are you, Sami?” “Good. Yourself?” “Wonderful, wonderful! Nice to see you. It’s good to live another day!” In the world according to Ruben Pardo, life is what you make of it. It is small only if you see it as small. It is as big as you dream it. “Life is wonderful if you look at the positive side,” he says. “I try to pick up the high points.” He was born in Mexico City, the son of a shop owner. But the shops went bust and the family went north, settling in Chicago when he was 7. His father worked in the steel mills. Still, money was tight. So at 9, Pardo became a newsboy — calling out “Extra, extra, read all about it!” after school. “I learned the punches of life at a very early age,” he says. In class, Catholic nuns taught him “to be a good soldier” and obey. But his formal education ended after the ninth grade, when he got a full-time job to secure his younger siblings’ futures. Before his family moved to East

Los Angeles in 1962, he found work where he could, painting garages, shoveling snow. “I was like a sacrifice,” he says — one that paid off for others. His brother became a public defender. One sister is an accountant. The other retired as a pharmacist assistant. “Everybody had a good position and guess what? They all got houses and three cars, four cars in the garage. And I’m the one with the little apartment,” Pardo says. That’s the small version of Pardo’s life: “But we are happy. Me and my wife, we are really happy. ... As long as you’re happy, as long as you are full of happiness, that’s all that matters.” The young people in the building have led big lives already. They’ve been to college. They’ve seen the world. Recently, two of them got married. Tracy and Josh Ryan, the founders of Jett Media Group on 6, were taking off for their honeymoon — to London, Ibiza, Barcelona and Paris. In the elevator, Pardo wished Josh well. Pardo has seen the world, too, he says — when he was young. Each Christmas, his father would drive the family from Chicago to Mexico or California. Heading west, they took Route 66. “Some of the states we saw end-to-end. Some of them we just saw in parts. ... In Arizona and New Mexico, we saw a lot of those rocks, in different shapes, different colors, like in the old cowboy and Indian movies. To us kids, it was like looking at a dream,” he says. All day, as he rides up and down, he lets his happy memories roll around in his head. Chicago, a place so cold “you have to dress like bears.” The windy, rainy day he first spoke to Trudy at a bus stop after gathering her school papers, which had blown onto the street. The time he was in the elevator in an earthquake and “it swayed 20 to 30 times, can you imagine?” “My mind is so full of all the adventures I’ve been through,” he says. They sustain him, as do life’s daily surprises. “I love my small, little world.”

Colonels storm to another Cup victory Wilkes wins the city championship for the eighth time in the past nine years. By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – The 2011 installment of the Mayor’s Cup game will be known at the Snow Cup game. When King’s hosted Wilkes on Saturday at McCarthy Stadium, the teams not only battled each other, they took on the elements as heavy, wet snow smothered the field. Combined with gusty winds, the weather was very

much a factor as the teams combined for seven fumbles, two missed extra points and several slips on the slushy field in the Colonels’ 13-6 victory. Last year’s Wilkes victory -when the temperature was pushing 80 degrees -- gave the teams something warm to think about. It was the first time both programs were part of a snow game in more than 15 years. With the win, Wilkes (3-4 overall, 3-3 MAC) received the Mayor’s Cup trophy for the 12th time in the 16-year history of the game. “I’ve told my players I always wanted to play in a game like

this,” Wilkes coach Frank Sheptock said. “It was a neat atmosphere for us to play in. “As the game continues to be played and the tradition grows with it, this is something the kids will look back and say that it’s a pretty neat atmosphere.” See CUP, Page 6C

Missed field goal places Penn State coach atop victory list By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

STATE COLLEGE – They’re going to remember the sound. The snow, the cold, the record, the three quarters of offensive ineptitude – all of it was there, too. But they’re going to remember the sound that final kick made as it collided with the right upright. Penn State players, coaches and fans will remember the hollow thud

as Derek Dimke’s game-tying field goal attempt sailed back toward the line of scrimmage. The remaining students who had stuck around Paterno through a historic October snowstorm frantically rushed toward into the open seats behind the upright before the try went up. They

held their breath. And then ... Clang. Penn State 10, Illinois 7. Incredibly, a seventh straight win for the Nittany Lions and No. 409 in the Hall of Fame career of Joe Paterno, pushing him past the late Eddie Robinson for first place all-time in Division I college football. The only other college coach at any level still ahead of Paterno is John Gagliardi, who is at 482 and counting

at Division III St. John’s (Minn.) “For me, a kid from Brooklyn, whose grandfather was an immigrant, to be something like this really means a lot to me. An awful lot,” Paterno said after being presented a commemorative plaque by Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and university president Graham Spanier. “I’ve gotta thank the coaching staff See LIONS, Page 3C

By ERIC OLSON AP Sports Writer

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Following one strong road performance with another, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins polished off a short but sweet weekend by hammering the Manchester Monarchs 4-1 on Saturday at Verizon Wireless Arena. The Penguins pocketed two power-play goals, while providing goaltender Brad Thiessen with superb protection. Thiessen made 17 saves – just 11 through the first two periods – to record the win. This after a long bus ride from Syracuse through a freakish October blizzard on the strength of Friday’s 5-3 win.

LINCOLN, Neb. — That fantastic finish against Wisconsin sure seems like a long time ago to Michigan State. The ninth-ranked Spartans had a chance to build an almost insurmountable lead in the Big Ten Legends Division on Saturday against No. 13 Nebraska, but the Spartans’ road demons cropped up again in a 24-3 loss. “What a difference a week makes,” Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. The Spartans were held to 187 total yards and quarterback Kirk

PAUL SOKOLOSKI OPINION

Lions know that they will win

SOME MAY SEE it as marvelous, magical or mystical the way Penn State keeps finding ways to win football games. Really though, the Nittany Lions’ success has more to do with their unshakeable self-faith than depending on a wing and a prayer. While most Penn State fans were asking the heavens for a miracle during the team’s final drive Saturday, the Nittany Lions were asking themselves this: Why not now? "I kept telling the guys at halftime, ‘It’s going to happen for us,’" Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin said. "It took a little longer than I would have wanted." It took Penn State to its final drive to finally put the ball in the end zone and pull out a 10-7 victory over Illinois. It took undying determination for the Lions to put aside a whole day of struggles in the snow and march 80 yards for a game-winning touchdown. It took a lot of luck for them to remain unbeaten in the Big Ten, too. Signs of Penn State fortune were everywhere at Beaver Stadium, starting with an Illinois field goal attempt that was botched when the holder dropped the snap at the end of the first half. A lot more fate played Penn State’s way right from the start of the second half. You gotta have faith A completed pass that would have put Illinois in field goal range was ruled an interception when Penn State cornerback D’Anton Lynn ripped the ball out of the receiver’s hands as he appeared already down and stretched out on the ground. A pass interference call could have gone either way on a fourth-down pass play, but it went Penn State’s way to extend the winning touchdown drive. And the Lions victory wasn’t sealed until Illinois kicker Derek Dimke kicked a 42-yard field goal attempt straight into the right goal post as time expired for his first miss all season. Penn State’s Big Ten season doesn’t go to 5-0 without those key contributions from fate. But the Lions wouldn’t have rebounded with a winning rally in the clutch without believing they could put it together, either. "I guess it’s just something this team has inside of us," McGloin said. That trust stems from McGloin, who convinced his teammates they could march 80 yards over the game’s final three minutes and five seconds against a defense that hadn’t let the Lions in the end zone all day. "He just kind of said what he always says, ‘We got this, we’re going to get down there, continue our season,’" said wide receiver Derek Moye, who made two big catches and drew that pass interference call in the end zone on Penn State’s touchdown march. Sometimes, McGloin sounds as if he’s marching to his own drummer. But you have to admire his dogged determination that never sways, even in the face of adversity. The confident junior quarterback from Scranton threw 18 passes and missed his target on 13 of them before the final march. Then he hit four of his See KNOW, Page 3C

PSU defense takes center stage once again Nittany Lions hold Illinois to one TD as Penn State enters bye week with an 8-1 mark. By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

STATE COLLEGE – Call it ugly, old-fashioned or even hard to watch. Penn State’s showing in a 10-7 victory over Illinois on Saturday will not win any beauty pageants. And that’s just how the defensive unit likes it. With the offense sputtering in an all-too-common fashion, the Nittany Lions defense forced a season-high four takeaways to keep the Fightin’ Illini at bay. It allowed quarterback Matt McGloin to tailor a late fourthquarter comeback, capped off by a 3-yard touchdown run by Silas Redd. “As a whole defense, you al-

ways try to make turnovers,” said Nate Stupar, who forced a fumble. “Just like any other week, we made a lot of turnovers and big plays. The turnovers changed the game; they changed the momentum.” Junior linebacker Gerald Hodges proved to be Illinois coach Ron Zook’s offense’s No. 1 foe. Hodges posted a career-high 19 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and two pass breakups to frustrate the Illini’s similarly stagnant offense. “Playing weak side, you’re never thinking you’re going to get that many tackles,” Hodges said. “But being around the ball that often, it just happens.” None of Penn State’s four turnovers proved as crucial as a punt block on special teams early in the fourth quarter. Brad Bars blocked and recovered a punt that gave the Nittany Lions’ possession at the Illinois 31, setting up an Anthony Fera field goal

Moye answers call when team needs him By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

STATE COLLEGE -- Derek Moye would be rehabbing in the pool. There was Matt McGloin. In the locker room. McGloin again. On the practice field and all the way into the fourth quarter on Saturday, McGloin followed his top target around. Still recovering from a broken bone in his left foot, Moye seemed all but certain to miss his third straight game Saturday when Penn State took on Illinois. But McGloin kept it up. “He was messing with me all week in practice,” Moye said with a smirk. “I’d be (working out) and he’d be saying, ‘You practicing today? You practicing today?’ It was the same thing in the game. ‘When you going in? When you going in?’ “I think he kinda wanted me to lobby the coaches. He was lobbying me to lobby the coaches.” Stunningly, Moye suited up for the game despite not practicing all week while donning the red-cross jersey that keeps a player out of most every type of drill. Even more surprising was when Moye actually came out on the field for a drive late in the third quarter. What many assumed was just a decoy role turned into anything but, as the senior captain caught two key passes for 29 yards and drew a game-saving pass interference flag on the Nittany Lions’ game-winning drive. “I was trying to get him going all week,” said McGloin, who comes out for every game in tandem with Moye to throw the ball around. “I just kept asking him, ‘You playing, man? You feel good? You feel good?’ “He kept telling me he felt good. We were going to need him in an emergency situation, and I’d say that was an emergency.” Oh, yes. “(Receivers coach Mike McQueary) told me at halftime, ‘Be ready. We may need you.’ They told me that before the game, too,” Moye said. “Then it was a drive and I just heard my name being called to get warmed up.” Penn State receivers had filled in ably for Moye when he

six attempts in the clutch for 58 of his 98 total passing yards on the day. "He’s just part of what the whole team has done all year," said Penn State coach Joe Paterno, whose team is suddenly 8-1 overall. "We’re not killing people. We don’t go out and run over them. We’ve had to struggle.

PENN STATE NOTEBOOK sat out the past two weeks. But on this day, everything in the Lions’ passing game seemed to misfire and the wideouts played their role with a few ill-timed drops. Down 7-0 with three minutes to play, Moye was on the field again. “The doctors had said Moye can play if you really need him, but be careful with him,” coach Joe Paterno said. “Y’know, we were dropping the ball and I said to Jay Paterno, ‘You tell Mike McQueary, I want our best receivers in the game for that drive. We can’t afford to drop a pass.’” As it turned out Moye did end up dropping a pass himself on the drive, a key miss on third-and-6 from the Illinois 32-yard line. But Moye made up for it by doing just enough on the next play to get the pass interference call against his man and then snagged a 9-yard gain to the 8 to set up Silas Redd’s winning touchdown. Penn State’s doctors said Moye would sit out against Purdue and Northwestern before returning to face the Illini. But as the last two weeks went along with Moye unable to go much in practice, it looked less and less likely that he would be able to play Saturday. Yet there he was, helping the Lions stay atop the Big Ten standings with a 10-7 win. “To be honest with you, I really didn’t think they were going to put him in today,” McGloin said. “But we did need him there in the end. And he came through for us.” Redd letter day Penn State finished with just 209 yards of total offense, with Redd picking up 137 of them by himself on the ground. It was his fifth straight game over the century mark, making him the first Penn State back since Curtis Enis in 1997 to accomplish that feat. Redd finished with a careerhigh 30 carries despite battling another stinger on his left shoulder in the first half. The Lions needed every last one of them, as No. 30 finally got them across the goal line. "They’ve kept their poise and they don’t panic," Paterno continued about his Lions. "I think Mac has epitomized that." If nothing else, the Lions have turned themselves into perfect examples of resiliency. McGloin never got gun-shy while he was having a bad day, taking his team on a last-gasp touchdown drive the way a certain high-profile New England Patriots quarterback has become known for in the NFL. "I thought about how Tom

that ended their scoreless drought. Despite the four turnovers, Penn State’s offense did not manage any points off of them. Until the late scoring drive, it struggled to move the ball into Illinois territory. For the game, the Nittany Lions managed 209 yards of offense. With the scored knotted at zero apiece for much of the game, Joe Paterno needed an outstanding effort by the defense; however, its job remained unchanged, according to players. “We don’t feel the pressure,” said Devon Still, who contributed a career-best 10 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss. “I feel as a defense, that’s your job: to get the ball back into the offense’s hands as quick as possible. We go into every game with that mentality.” The Penn State defense practiced throughout the week for Illinois’ to run an option-style offense. But the Nathan Scheel-

haase-led Illini utilized only one or two option plays, according to Stupar. “It’s funny. We were expecting a lot of options. They only ran one or two plays. We just manned up, changed on the fly and played defense.” To Paterno, this year’s team is a more defensive-oriented team, compared to past seasons. “Some years you play great defense and great kicking, and some years you have to offset that with more offense. I think this club obviously is a very fine defensive football team.” In the drive after Illinois went ahead 7-0, Hodges forced a fumble that ended a third-quarter Illinois drive that had already moved 30 yards. Hodges hit Donovonn Young on a second effort before Stupar pounced on it to claim possession. “I saw him make a spin move, and then the ball he was carrying

came to view,” Hodges said. “I hit him and ripped it out of there.” Three of Penn State’s turnovers occurred deep in Nittany Lion territory. Nick Sukay forced a fumble in the second quarter the first time Illinois advanced past midfield. Later in the quarter, Sean Stanley intercepted a botched field goal hold that was thrown downfield to the Penn State 11. D’Anton Lynn pulled an interception out of a receiver’s hands in the third quarter at the 31-yard line. Stanley said this was the defense’s “best game of the season.” Penn State held Illinois to 94 yards passing. For the second consecutive week, the rushing defense struggled against a running game that boasts a mobile quarterback. Scheelhaase, along with running back Jason Ford, produced a 100plus yards on the ground.

LIONS Continued from Page 1C

and a really good buncha kids that I think proved today (what) they’ve got. … And to all the fans out there, thanks for sitting through that today. You’ve gotta be nuts!” For several reasons, yes. Not just the surreal snow that started early in the morning and dumped nearly 6 inches of snow on Happy Valley. But because for nearly 50 minutes, the Lions offense appeared dead on the table. Through three-and-a-half quarters, Matt McGloin and Rob Bolden combined to go 4-of-21 passing for 33 yards and two turnovers. Penn State trailed 7-0 on a Nathan Scheelhaase touchdown pass and was floundering. But the defense forced four turnovers by the Fighting Illini and Brad Bars blocked a punt to set up an Anthony Fera 30-yard field goal with seven minutes to play. The Lions (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) then got a stop on defense and forced a punt, taking over at their own 20 yard-line with 3:05 to play. “I don’t know what it was, if we weren’t into it or what, but we couldn’t get things going early on,” said McGloin, who made his second straight start, though he watched most of the second quarter from the sideline as Bolden took over for four ineffective drives. “But every quarterback and every offense wants to be in that situation to make a play and win. You have to make a play. You have to pressure yourself to get something done. … You’ve gotta score. You’re either a hero or you’re nothing.” Sounding hoarse and battling a cold, McGloin rallied the troops and them on their most important drive of the season, hooking up with a hobbled Derek Moye to get things going. McGloin proceeded to go 4for-6 for 58 yards on the drive, including a fourth-down bomb in the end zone to Moye – who was came in late to play on a broken foot – that drew a pass interference flag. “He was open,” McGloin said simply. “They jumped the two underneath routes. He was open so I threw it to him. … I took a shot, and luckily we got the pass interference.” Four plays later, it was Silas Redd, having just topped 1,000 yards on the season, scoring from 3 yards out for Penn State’s first lead of the game – 10-7 with just 1:01 to play. The Illini (6-3, 2-3) drove 58 yards to the Penn State 25 in that final minute, bringing on Dimke Brady does those things," McGloin said, "move the chains. The line was confident, the backs were confident." Moye’s confidence may have been shaken when he dropped a third-down pass with time running out deep in Illinois territory. But the Lions went right back to him on the next play, and the pass interference call on the defending trying to stop him gave the Lions a fresh set of downs 17 yards from the end zone. "I felt like I let my teammates

to send the game to overtime with five seconds left. “I knew it was close. I was leaning – you know how when you hit your (pitching wedge) and you’re leaning, leaning,” defensive coordinator Tom Bradley joked, tilting all the way to his right in his seat to demonstrate after the game. “But I just felt that they weren’t gonna score. I just had that feeling that he wasn’t gonna make it.” Dimke, who had been a perfect 7-for-7 on field goals on the season, including a long of 49 yards, hit it well. But he hit it right. Just far enough to connect in the dead center of the upright. down," Moye said of his drop. "But I got back in the huddle, realized there was another chance to make up for it." Silas Redd made up for what seemed like a lost cause. His fumble in the first quarter didn’t give Illionis the game’s first points, only because a ferocious Lions defense drove the Illini backwards. But Redd came back from that with a three-yard touchdown run as the game clock hit1:08 - an ideal ending to his 137-yard rushing

Those few inches made the difference, keeping Penn State as the lone team left undefeated in Big Ten play. Now the Lions will rest up during an open week before closing with the toughest part of their schedule – home against Nebraska and on the road at Ohio State and Wisconsin – as they try and hold on for a spot in the inaugural Big Ten championship game. “I think we’ve proven to ourselves … that we’ll stick together and make some things happen,” Paterno said. “Whether that’s gonna be good enough with other teams, we’ll see. “We’ll find out how good we are.” day. "At times we struggle," Paterno said. "But jeez, there’s a lot of character, a lot of feeling for each other. We’ve proven to ourselves we’ll stick together and we can make things happen." It may seem like a mystery, how the Lions remain at the top of the Legends Division in the new Big Ten with an offense playing so poorly that something looks broken. They do it with the desire it takes to make their own breaks.

THIRD QUARTER UIUC -- Spencer Harris 10-yard pass from Nathan Scheelhaase (Derek Dimke kick), 3:32. Drive: 11 plays, 64 yards, 4:26. Comment: After a bad two-plus quarters of offense, Illinois finally breaks through. Scheelhaase, who came into this drive late in the third quarter sitting at minus-4 yards passing on the game, gets things going with his legs. The sophomore scrambles for a few important first downs before Jason Ford rips off an impressive, tackle-busting run of 18 yards down to the Penn State 12-yard line. On thirdand-8 from the 10, Illinois offensive coordinator Paul Petrino dials up a well-timed and wellexecuted play as Scheelhaase fakes the handoff and delivers a pass to Harris open in the end zone. In this game, it just might be enough. ILLINOIS 7, PENN STATE 0. FOURTH QUARTER PSU -- Anthony Fera 30-yard field goal, 7:00. Drive: 10 plays, 18 yards, 5:24. Comment: The defense had already forced four turnovers only to see the offense fail to score after any of them. This time it’s the special teams unit that tries to resuscitate the dying offense as redshirt freshman Brad Bars comes through, leaps and deflects a Justin DuVernois punt directly skyward. Penn State takes over at the Illinois 31 and, yes, there is a pulse. Matt McGloin completes the team’s first pass since late in the first quarter when he finds Devon Smith for a firstand-goal at the Illinois 5. But the Illini defense is up to the task, pushing the Lions backward. On third down, the pressure closes in on McGloin, who drops the ball while scrambling in the pocket for the team’s sixth fumble of the game. McGloin picks it up but is forced to take a sack and bring out Fera for a disappointing three points. UIUC 7, PSU 3. PSU -- Silas Redd 3-yard run (Fera kick), 1:08. Drive: 10 plays, 80 yards, 1:57. Comment: OK, so it wasn’t exactly the ‘94 game out in Champaign -- one of the Nittany Lions’ most historic comebacks, which was capped off with a 99-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes to keep the team’s unbeaten season alive. But after a long, cold, gray afternoon in which almost nothing went right for the Lions offense, it felt impressive. McGloin had been just 5-of-18 passing for 40 yards as the drive opened. But he went 4for-6 for 58 yards on this one, incredibly connecting with senior Derek Moye, who came on late to play on a broken left foot to get things started. On fourthand-6 from the Illinois 32, McGloin looks first underneath to Justin Brown and Devon Smith, but both are covered tightly near the sticks. So the man from Scranton goes deep to Moye instead, and the senior captain draws a borderline pass interference flag in the end zone as both players handfight their way down the field. From there, it’s three straight handoffs to Redd, who tops 1,000 yards on the season and does his best Brian Milne impression, fighting through tackles to finally get the Lions across the goal line. Wow. PSU 10, UIUC 7. PLAY OF THE GAME Despite an utter lack of big plays throughout the first 50plus minutes, there are actually quite a few candidates here. Forced to pick just one, how about the job by redshirt freshman Brad Bars, who blocked a punt from the Illinois 37 with 12:24 to play and gave life to the Lions, who were barely registering a pulse? Penn State only got three points out of the ensuing drive, but it seemed to give the team the extra spark needed to pull out the improbable victory.

NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL

Fighting Irish ground their way to 7 TDs, sink Navy

After his apology to his team, Notre Dame responds with big win for coach Brian Kelly. By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame less than two minutes to make a week’s worth of problems — heck, maybe a season’s worth — disappear. Michael Floyd and Jonas Gray scored in a span of 1 minute, 59 seconds Saturday, and Notre Dame rolled from there, rebounding from its rough week with a 5614 thrashing of Navy. The Irish (5-3) rushed for seven touchdowns, most in 19 years, while limiting Navy (2-6) to a seasonlow 229 yards of offense in the Midshipmen’s sixth straight loss. “As a family, we all have good days and bad days. And you work through that as a family,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said.

“We communicated with each other as a team and as a family, and you saw it today. You saw a team that played together. I told our team, that’s the best collection of plays relative to all 11 players playing together.” A lopsided loss to USC last Saturday night pretty much ended Notre Dame’s chances of a BCS bowl for yet another year, and tensions within the team apparently flared after Kelly talked about having to “retrain” the players he inherited from Charlie Weis. Some of the veterans, including star linebacker Manti Te’o, expressed their displeasure with his comments on Twitter, and the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday that Kelly apologized to players during a team meeting Friday. But winning cures all kinds of ills and the Irish looked like a happy bunch Saturday, exchanging flying chest bumps after TDs and dancing on the sidelines.

Notre Dame scored on five of its first six possessions, and had two running backs score multiple touchdowns (Gray had three, Cierre Wood had two) for the first time since 2001. Floyd also had two TDs, scoring on a 56-yard catch and a 10-yard lateral for Notre Dame, which beat Navy for only the second time in five years after winning 43 straight from 1964 to 2006. The game was so out of hand, the starters spent the fourth quarter on the sidelines. “I’m not going to get into the specifics of it, but we just had to go out there and play unified,” Gray said. “Let the outside distractions be just that, outside distractions. Obviously, when you look at us on the field, that was a unified team, no doubt.” Not that everything was perfect. Notre Dame has struggled with turnovers all season, and its sloppiness cost the Irish again in

COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUP

BIG TEN ROUNDUP

Jones’ record day lifts Sooners The Associated Press

MANHATTAN, Kan. — Landry Jones and Ryan Broyles helped No. 11 Oklahoma get back on track and spoil 10thranked Kansas State’s dream season. Jones threw for a schoolrecord 505 yards and five touchdowns, his All-American wide receiver caught 14 passes for 171 yards and a score, and the Sooners bounced back from a stunning defeat to beat the previously unbeaten Wildcats 58-17 Saturday. Kenny Stills added four catches for 101 yards, Roy Finch finished with 73 yards rushing and another 69 through the air, and the Sooners’ potent, fast-paced attack managed 690 yards of total offense against the league’s top-ranked defense. Jones’ passing total shattered the previous record of 468 yards he shared with Sam Bradford, while Broyles moved into first place on the Big 12’s career list with 4,499 yards receiving. It wasn’t all good for Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1). Leading rusher Dominique Whaley was hurt while blocking on the first play of the game. The Oklahoma medical staff put an air cast around his lower left leg and he was removed from the field on a cart. He later returned to the sideline on crutches, but the extent of the injury was unknown. No. 3 Oklahoma St. 59, Baylor 24 STILLWATER, Okla. — Joseph Randle set career-highs by running for 152 yards and four touchdowns, Justin Blackmon matched his career best with 13 catches for 172 yards and two scores and No. 3 Oklahoma State beat Baylor 59-24 on Saturday. The Cowboys (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) started a season with eight straight wins for only the second time in school history. The other time was in 1945, when they finished the season 9-0, won the Sugar Bowl and were ranked fifth in the final poll. Brodrick Brown recovered two fumbles, and Daytawion Lowe and Justin Gilbert had interceptions as Oklahoma State forced five turnovers. Robert Griffin III threw for 425 yards to end up 5 shy of his career best set last week. The Bears (4-3, 1-3) amassed 622 yards but most of them were empty. No. 7 Oregon 43, Washington State 28 EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon stars LaMichael James and Darron Thomas returned from injury but true freshman De’Anthony Thomas sparked the No. 7 Ducks with two second-half touchdowns in a 43-28 victory over Washington State on Saturday. Darron Thomas, who missed a game because of a knee injury,

Toussaint runs wild as Michigan clubs Purdue The Associated Press

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for a career-high 170 yards and tied a career high with two touchdowns, leading No. 17 Michigan to a 36-14 win over Purdue on Saturday. The Wolverines (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) gave up a TD on the opening drive of the game, then scored 36 straight points to bounce back from their first loss of the season, two weeks ago at Michigan State. The Boilermakers (4-4, 2-2) haven’t won or lost consecutive games this year. Toussaint had 155 yards rushing through three quarters, helping Michigan find a rusher to take some of the load from quarterback Denard Robinson. Backup Michael Shaw ran for a 37-yard TD on his first carry early in the fourth for a 36-7 lead.

This was the third time this season the Razorbacks (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) trailed by double digits. They didn’t trail by 18 as they did against Texas A&M or 17 last week before beating Mississippi. This time, Vanderbilt led by 21-7 with 1:39 left in the first half.

Texas A&M got the ball after the score, but Ryan Tannehill’s pass on fourth down was deflected.

scored on a 9-yard pass from young quarterback Trey Miller, playing in place of Kriss Proctor, to cut Notre Dame’s lead to 14-7. Instead of falling apart, though, the Irish roared back with two touchdowns in a 2-minute span. George Atkinson III gave the Irish great field position, putting the ball at the Notre Dame 44. Rees then found Floyd, who took advantage of Navy’s defensive breakdowns and strolled into the end zone untouched for a 56-yard score. The Irish defense hounded young quarterback Trey Miller all afternoon. Miller finished just 5-of-13 for 33 yards, and Navy could only manage 196 yards on the ground — well below its average of 325 yards. Fullback Alex Teich, who ran roughshod over the Irish last year for a career-high 210 yards on 26 carries, was held to just 62 on 15 touches.

TEMPE, Ariz. — Brock Osweiler threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns, Cameron Marshall added three scores on the ground and No. 23 Arizona State avoided a letdown with a 48-14 rout over Colorado on Saturday.

Cousins couldn’t get anything going in the passing game against Nebraska’s swarming defense. After throwing for 290 yards and three TDs at home in last week’s crazy 37-31 win over Wisconsin last week, Cousins missed on 12 of his first 16 passes and finished11of 27 for 86 yards. He was sacked four times. Cousins was intercepted on the Spartans’ first possession, was nearly picked off three other times and often threw into double coverage. “We’re a much better team than we showed today and we still have a lot of things in front of us to accomplish,” Cousins said. “It’s important to push on and understand that so much of what happens to us this season is not what happened to us but how we respond. It’s important that we respond the right way.” The Cornhuskers (7-1, 3-1) moved into a tie with Michigan State (6-2, 3-1) and Michigan for the Big Ten Legends Division lead. Iowa also would have a share of the lead with a win over Minnesota. The Huskers own the tiebreaker with Michigan State and are yet to play Michigan and Iowa.

passes tied the school’s singlegame team record. Northwestern finished with 616 total yards, just short of another school record (674). The Wildcats ended their five-game losing streak. Indiana (1-8, 0-5) lost its sixth straight and has now given up 40 or more points in four straight games for the first time since 2005. Minnesota 22, Iowa 21 MINNEAPOLIS — MarQueis Gray’s fourth-down sprint for the pylon from the 2-yard line in the closing minutes lifted Minnesota to a 22-21 victory over Iowa on Saturday, giving the Gophers possession of the Floyd of Rosedale bronze pig trophy for the second straight year. Gray went 11 for 17 for 193 yards and a touchdown passing and ran 11 times for 62 yards and the go-ahead score for the Gophers (2-6, 1-3), who lost their first three Big Ten games by an average margin of 38 points. Minnesota students stormed the field in celebration and surrounded the players afterward. Marcus Coker carried the ball 32 times through several huge holes for 252 yards and two touchdowns, but the Hawkeyes (5-3, 2-2) missed a chance to move into a four-way tie for first place in the Legends Division with a rough November schedule ahead.

Michigan State running back Le’Veon Bell said he and his teammates won’t use the emotional hangover of last week’s win as an excuse. “I don’t think that affected us,” he said. “We just didn’t execute the way we should have. Especially in an environment like that, playing on the road, you’ve got to execute a lot better.” The road hasn’t been kind to the Spartans. They were hammered at Iowa a year ago for their only Big Ten loss and again by Alabama in the Capital One Bowl. This year they were drilled 31-13 at Notre Dame and scraped by in a 10-7 win at Ohio State. Rex Burkhead scored three touchdowns and ran 35 times for 130 yards as Nebraska won for only the second time in17 games against a top-10 opponent. Burkhead, who went over 100 yards for the fifth time in six games, scored at the end of 80and 89-yard drives in the third quarter that broke open a 10-3 game. Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez completed only a shovel pass for no yards in the first half, but went 4 for 4 on the first series of the second half and completed third-down passes to Tim Marlowe and Brandon Kinnie before Burkhead scored from a yard out to make it a two-touchdown lead.

Mohawks romp to victory over Redeemer Meyers’ Fabian Smith rushes for 168 yards and scores two touchdowns Saturday night.

By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – At least Meyers left with a warm feeling on a very cold, snowy night for football. The same couldn’t be said for Holy Redeemer in the only local high school game played Saturday. The Mohawks dominated all aspects of the game to post their third win of the season with a 36-6 victory in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2A-A game at snow-covered Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium. Running back Fabian Smith led the victory, rushing for 168 yards and two touchdowns as Meyers improved to 3-6. Redeemer (0-9) lost its 20th consecutive game, but was able to avoid a shutout when quarterback David Gawlas scored on a 9-yard run with eight seconds remaining. Special teams and fumbles

played a big part in the game turning into a rout by halftime. A bad punt snap on Redeemer’s first possession of the game resulted in a 22-yard loss to give Meyers the ball at the Royals’ 4-yard line. Meyers quarterback Teaguen Labatch scored on a 1-yard run two plays later. Then late in the first quarter, Redeemer fumbled twice on the same play, losing the second one. Smith galloped 50 yards on the next play, giving Meyers the ball at the Redeemer 8. After a penalty, Labatch fired a pass to tight end Jalen Miller over the middle for a 13-yard touchdown and a14-0 lead at11:55 of the second quarter. Miller followed with a big play from his defensive end spot on Redeemer’s ensuing possession. He broke through the line and tackled Redeemer running back Vince Villani in the end zone for a safety. Smith scored on a 48-yard pitch on the first play after the free kick, increasing the Mohawks’ lead to 23-0. Matt DeMarco scored on a 32yard run with 4:15 left in the sec-

The Mayor’s Cup had a throwback feel as Wilkes and King’s battled in the snow Saturday at McCarthy Stadium.

tled to the end and we kind of ran out of time there,” Knarr noted. “(Klein) settled down and hit some passes at the end. He’s going to remember his first start no matter what, but this one he’ll probably never forget. He did a lot of good things and at the end of day he gave us a chance to win.” Wilkes defensive end Rob Houseknecht was named his team’s MVP for a 12-tackle performance, which included 2.5 for a loss and a half of a sack. King’s junior defensive lineman Jake Lehnowsky earned the Monarchs’ MVP award, racking up six tackles, three for a loss and a half of a sack.

The conditions also affected the Monarch’s (1-6, 1-5) passing game. With freshman quarterback Bryant Klein making his first career start, Monarchs coach Jeff Knarr wanted to utilize a more potent passing attack, but the weather kept the team from achieving that until the snow slowed down in the fourth quarter. “We were trying to run he ball, but we need to throw it,” Knarr said. “They’re an eight-man, 4-4 defense, so you got to throw the football. It was really tough, not only in the snow, but the wind was an issue. It’s really hard to throw the ball effectively.” Wilkes didn’t have much trouble getting its offense going early as Zach Tivald broke off a 52yard touchdown run at the 11:26 mark in the first quarter. Tivald, who ran for 128 yards on 18 carries, took the ball off the right end and scampered for the score and a 6-0 lead. “That gave us great momentum and we wanted to get a good start today because of the elements,” Sheptock added. “You didn’t know what was coming. So having that early lead gave us some confidence.”

PENGUINS Continued from Page 1C

“It was a real simple and smart road win,” said rookie forward Brian Gibbons, who factored into two goals. “I think we stuck to the game plan really well. We played the kind of game we wanted to play, and did what we tried to do.” The Penguins displayed much more energy than their hosts, losers of five of their past six starts. They grabbed a 1-0 first period lead courtesy of Gibbons, then fattened it to two goals in the second. “We wanted to try to end the weekend on a good note,” Pen-

Wilkes players celebrate winning the Mayor’s Cup while holding the prized trophy aloft Saturday at McCarthy Stadium.

As the clock was winding down in the first half, Colonels quarterback Alex George capped a 5-play, 69-yard drive with a 25yard scamper to the end zone to put his team ahead13-0 with 3:56 left. The King’s offense, which managed only 65 total yards in the first half, got going late in the third quarter. Then as the fourth started, the Monarchs got on the board when Klein ended an 8play, 51-yard possession with a 1yard quarterback sneak for the score to trim the lead to 13-6. Wilkes took more than 8 min-

utes off the clock on its next drive, which ended when George was sacked and turned the ball over on downs. The Monarchs had one last chance to tie the game, getting the ball with 4:52 left on their 25. They drove 49 yards on eight plays before Klein was picked off at the goal line by Joe Chrismer with 37 seconds remaining to secure the victory. Klein was 5-of-11 for 51 yards and also ran for 31 yards -- all of those yards were gathered in the second half. “It was a good game. We bat-

guins coach John Hynes said. “And also to progress forward. It was nice to be able to get the lead and get things going. The guys are feeling good about how they’re playing.” Gibbons’ tally, his second of the season, came on a power play at 13:13, as the Penguins buzzed Manchester starting goalie Martin Jones. Gibbons was in the right spot to park a rebound left after Colin McDonald’s stuff attempt from close range was kicked out by Jones. “Colin was able to get good traffic in front,” Gibbons said, “and the puck just squeaked out to me. I was able to finish it.” McDonald also had a hand in

Eric Tangradi’s goal, which came at 4:59 of the middle stanza. Streaking down right wing, McDonald fed a cross-ice pass to Tangradi, who parked it for his fourth goal of the season. “He (McDonald) has good hockey sense,” Hynes said. “He seems to distribute the puck, so he knows what he’s going to do before he gets it. He can collect it and move it quick.” Then less than two minutes later, the Penguins received a gift goal, also on a power play, after Jason Williams’ rebound was kicked in by Manchester defenseman Thomas Hickey. Jones was pulled at that point in favor of backup Jeff Zatkoff. Gibbons made a nifty play after

Showdown will be nightmare for losing team Tonight’s big game could determine playoff fortunes for the NFC East contenders.

By ROB MAADDI AP Pro Football Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Last year’s Dallas Cowboys and this group of Philadelphia Eagles have a lot in common. America’s Team knows what it’s like when a Dream Team underachieves. “As you know, they put together the Super Team at the start of the year,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said during his weekly radio show. “We know how it goes when you put it on paper, but it’s got to go to the field. We had that happen to us last year, for sure. “So, we know that they have their heart. They have not in any way let where they are with their record impact their aspirations for this year. That’s a dangerous situation.”

Instead, they are last in the NFC East. Coming off a division title and a

Buddy Ryan never won a playoff game in five seasons coaching Philadelphia from 1986-90. But a big reason why he’s still revered in this city is his dominance over the Cowboys. Buddy’s boys were 8-2 against Dallas, including seven straight wins. There were some memorable games among those, including the Bounty Bowl in 1989. The Cowboys have won four of the previous five meetings, including a meaningless regular-season finale last year in which the Eagles rested their starters.

PITTSBURGH — Steelers coach Mike Tomlin meant to say he planned to “educate” his team’s younger players about the franchise’s long-simmering — and largely one-sided — rivalry with New England. Only, Tomlin didn’t use “educate.” At least, not at first, instead letting forth a Freudian slip that perhaps more accurately describes how the Steelers feel about their longtime nemesis. “I am going to agitate our guys,” Tomlin said before correcting himself. No need. Tom Brady has been agitating the Steelers for a decade. The Patriots quarterback has spent the last10 years shredding one of the NFL’s proudest defenses, beating Pittsburgh six times in seven meetings heading into Sunday’s showdown at Heinz Field that could be a preview of the AFC championship game. New England (5-1) is rested after a bye week. The Steelers

the Patriots come to town. Good teams. OK teams. Rebuilding teams. All of them lose to Brady. Pittsburgh’s only victory over New England with Brady under center came in 2004 when the Steelers ended the Patriots’ NFL record 21-game winning streak. No biggie. The Patriots returned to Heinz Field three months later and won the AFC championship game en route to their second straight Super Bowl title. Running backs change. Wide receivers change. Linemen change. Coordinators change. Brady’s mastery over the Steelers does not. The two-time MVP’s secret is no secret to the Steelers. He takes care of the ball — he’s thrown three interceptions in 255 career attempts against the Steelers — and he doesn’t back down. “We’ve got to minimize our miscues and be physical and play our game,” Pittsburgh nose tackle Casey Hampton said. “I think a lot of people get involved with trying to do too much against them, instead of just doing what you do. So, you have to

do what you do and do it well.” The Steelers will probably have to do it better than that to slow down the NFL’s top offense, a unit UP NEXT led by the forNEW mer sixthENGLAND at round pick PITTSBURGH whose greatTV: 4:15 p.m., CBS (WYOU-22) est moments in his Hall-ofOPENING Fame career LINE: Patriots by 21⁄2 have come LAST MEETPittsburgh’s ING: Patriots expense. beat Steelers Brady was 39-26, Nov. 14, still finding 2010 his footing after replacing injured Drew Bledsoe in 2001 when he helped the Patriots to an upset victory over the Steelers in the AFC championship game. He threw for just 115 yards in that first meeting before leaving with an ankle injury. Most times against the Steelers, he has that number by the half. He’s won four straight against Pittsburgh, averaging 332 yards passing in the process, including a 350-yard, three-touch-

down performance in a 39-26 victory here last year. “I tell you that the times we’ve beaten them, we’ve had to play very, very, very good games, and we have,” Brady said. “I think that’s probably what I am most proud of. Some of our greatest games that we’ve ever played have been against them and that’s just the level of execution.” Something that rarely changes regardless of who surrounds Brady in the huddle. “There are certain plays in our offense that I’ve literally run thousands of times,” Brady said. “You make a lot of mistakes over the course of those plays and you learn from them and hopefully you don’t make them again.” He rarely makes them against the Steelers, who stress they respect Brady but they don’t fear him. The Steelers have won three straight games to climb into first in the tight AFC North. A rematch with Baltimore — who whipped Pittsburgh 35-7 in the season-opener — looms next week. It might as well be next year. “If you’re in this locker room and you’re thinking about Baltimore, you have a problem,” safety Ryan Clark said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Like many players during a bye week, the New York Giants got in front of their televisions this past weekend and watched the winless Miami Dolphins blow a 15-point lead in the final three minutes and lose in overtime.

FANTASY GM

Continuing education By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

When Brian Gibbons came to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at the end of last season, he had a choice: hit the ice or hit the books. Gibbons, 23, had just signed a two-year contract with the Penguins after finishing up his senior season at Boston College. But while his college hockey career had “It was ended, there also very were still important some classes that reto me mained. Gibbons had knowing a few courses whenever to finish up the time in order to earn a degree comes, in marketing. after hock- Hockey or ey, I have a education? Gibbons degree chose the latter. that will “I had been help with at Boston College for my futhree-and-ature.” half years, Brian Gibbons and put a lot of time and Penguins effort into forward my schoolwork,” he said. “I chose to go to Boston College for a reason. Not only for the hockey, but for the education as well.” So while former college teammates such as Cam Atkinson (currently with Springfield), Jimmy Hayes (Rockford) and Joe Whitney (Albany) put school on hold to get into a handful of AHL games, Gibbons headed back to the classroom and earned his degree. “I knew I would get my chance the next year,” he said. “Sure it would’ve been nice to get a few games in, but while I was here for a week (last season) I really learned a lot about practices, what the coaches look for and how hard I would have to work. It was a good teaching tool for me.” Gibbons doesn’t regret his decision and there are a number of reasons behind it. The Penguins were wrapping up a franchise-record 58-win season and the roster was loaded with talented players. “I didn’t want to interrupt that,” Gibbons said. “They had a lot of good players here and I don’t think I would’ve been a game changer.” Also factoring into Gibbons’ decision was he was still on scholarship at BC and could finish up his classes and get his degree without having to pay for it. He also wanted to wrap his academic career up in the spring so he could spend all summer focusing on training for the upcoming season. “I just wanted to stay the extra two months, put the work in and get it done,” Gibbons said. But there was yet a bigger factor that influenced Gibbons’ decision to get his degree. “I know my parents wanted me to finish,” he said. “It was

BRAD THIESSEN Penguins goalie

Standing in net, Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins goaltender Brad Thiessen gets a perspective of the game that’s different from his teammates. He sees plays develop in front of him and he gets a first-hand glimpse at how a skilled forward maneuvers into the offensive zone or how a defenseman works the point on the power play. Because Thiessen’s position affords him a unique perspective of the game, he knows exactly how his team would look if he were a general manager for a day. “I’d have a couple of high-flying forward, plenty of good D and a good goalie,” he said. “The way they play would resemble our style.” So just who would Thiessen pick to fill those slots and play that style if he were a fantasy hockey GM? How about a set of twins, a couple of familiar faces, a few superstars, a legend in the making and one of the greatest to ever lace up the skates. Forward – Daniel Sedin (Vancouver) “He puts up points all the time.” Defenseman – Nicklas Lidstrom (Detroit) “He’s the best at everything, points and defense.” Goaltender – Marc-Andre Fleury (Pittsburgh) “He can get you a lot of points in fantasy hockey.” Power Play Specialist – Henrik Sedin (Vancouver) “Now I have them both.” Penalty Kill Specialist – Ryan Kesler (Vancouver) “He’s a good penalty killer and is able to score shorthanded. He works hard, flies around and blocks shots.” Shootout Specialist – Corey Perry (Anaheim) “Fifty goals. He’s a good sniper.” Enforcer – Deryk Engelland (Pittsburgh) Pest/Agitator – Alexandre Burrows (Vancouver) Head coach – Barry Trotz (Nashville) “He never gets fired.” All-Time Great – Wayne Gretzky (Edmonton, Los Angeles, St. Louis, N.Y. Rangers) “Does he really need an explanation?”

Brian Gibbons has two goals and four assists in eight games with the Penguins this season.

also very important to me knowing whenever the time comes, after hockey, I have a degree that will help with my future.” Head coach John Hynes said the team respected Gibbons’ decision to go back to school and said it’s a reflection of the type of person he is. “Education is important to him,” Hynes said. “He’s an excellent player who’s going to have a bright future in the game of hockey, but I think he also has his eye on the long-term.” With his goal of earning a degree accomplished, Gibbons has been able to focus all his at-

tention on his rookie season in the AHL. And it’s been a good one. After the first seven games, Gibbons has two goals and three assists. One of his goals was a shorthanded tally and the other came on the power play. That success on the special teams isn’t a really a surprise considering Gibbons saw extensive time in those areas at Boston College, and he put up points when playing in those roles. During his senior season, Gibbons scored seven power play goals and added four more shorthanded.

That prowess on special teams has earned Gibbons plenty of time on the power play and penalty kill with the Penguins this season, something that Hynes said makes him a versatile player. “He’s a dynamic player. Brian’s a really good puck handler and he makes others around him better because he has good vision and can move the puck,” Hynes said, adding Gibbons’ speed is similar to that of former Penguin Chris Conner. “If he can get the type of strength Chris Conner had, he’ll continue to make steps,”

Hynes added. While success has come quickly for Gibbons early in his professional career, he clearly isn’t satisfied. Always wanting to improve, the 5-8, 165-pound Gibbons said he has work to do with his play in the defensive zone, especially when it comes to defending against bigger and stronger players. “I’ll learn from my experience and by watching guys like Bryan Lerg and Ben Street do it,” he said. And learning, as he proved at the end of last season, is something Gibbons does particularly well.

Killeen keeps winning ways Goaltender Patrick Killeen continued his strong play in net last weekend for the Nailers, stopping 18 of 20 shots for a 3-2 win over Elmira. On the season, Killen is 3-0-0 and has stopped 54 of the 58 shots he faced. The Nailers are a perfect 3-0-0-0 heading into this weekend. Coincidentally, Mountain Top native Martin Moucha, who was at WilkesBarre/Scranton’s training camp, suited up with Elmira for last weekend’s game. Moucha had an assist and was a plus-1 on the night. The Nailers faced Gwinnett on Friday and hosted Trenton on Saturday night. -- Tom Venesky

‘Best-case’ for Kenseth, Edwards By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Roush Fenway Racing teammates Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth couldn’t have asked for a better scenario than rain washing out qualifying for Sunday’s race at Martinsville Speedway. Edwards had never qualified better than seventh on the 0.526mile oval, and Kenseth had never qualified better than 14th before weather handed them the front row spots Saturday. “Qualifying, I think, is one of the most important parts of this race and it’s no secret that’s been a tough thing for me and Matt as well, so I think it’s best-case for us that we get to start on the front row, and even better is the pit stall selection,” Edwards said. With only four races left in the season, and a lead of just 14 points over Kenseth,18 over Brad Keselowski and 19 over Tony Stewart, Edwards will take all the help he can get. He has four top-10 finishes in his last seven starts at the oldest track in the series, while Kenseth has seven top 10s in 23 starts. Neither has won here, while some of the other contenders have. Stewart has won twice, but not since 2006, and five-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, who is 50 points off the lead, has been to Victory Lane six times, last in 2009. Of course, apart from being able to select the pit stall at the front of pit road, giving him unimpeded access back onto the track, the other contenders will start up front, too. It’s nearly impossible to get through 500 laps around the paper clip-shaped oval without sustaining some damage to your car, and with a poor track record, Edwards’ team will try to build off the setup Kenseth used for his sixth-place run here in the spring.

Paint gets traded during practice runs By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Kevin Harvick and Greg Biffle had a run-in on the track when the Sprint Cup Series got in its only practice after the rain stopped Saturday, and then had words as the confrontation spilled over into the garage later. On the track, Biffle ran into the back of Harvick’s car. Harvick, who is fifth in the series standings 26 points behind leader Carl Edwards, later hit Biffle in the back. The drivers later stopped at the exit of Turn 2, then headed for the garage, where Harvick pulled in alongside Biffle, then ahead, momentarily blocking Biffle’s access to his stall. Biffle turned in anyway, clipping the back of Harvick’s car. After climbing from his car, Biffle headed to Harvick’s garage stall, drawing a crowd of team members and officials, even though the conversation appeared to become amicable. Biffle’s teammates, Edwards and Matt Kenseth, are 1-2 in the

Kurt Busch, who is eighth, 52 points behind, thinks their Chase already is over. “We’re 50 points back, which is the equivalent of being over a race back,” he said. “The old system, that would be 200 points back. There’s no way you can gain that in four races.”

NOTEBOOK point standings. OVER FOR FIVE-TIME? Jimmie Johnson’s six victories at Martinsville are second among active drivers to teammate Jeff Gordon’s seven, but Johnson doesn’t necessarily view Sunday’s race as his best chance to make a dent in his 50-point deficit to leader Carl Edwards with four races left. He figures that came last week at Talladega, but his strategy of racing at the back of the pack to avoid a big crash, and then charging to the front at the end was foiled by cautions. Now, it’s anyone’s guess. “As long as we are still mathematically in it, I’m not going to give up hope. I just never been one to lay down on something or to quit and not try; we have four races left on the schedule, stuff can happen,” Johnson said. “That window of opportunity is getting smaller and smaller,

especially with these last two weeks, but it is not over until it is over.” With six drivers ahead of him in the standings, he knows his odds are long. “It’s one thing if there were one or two guys ahead of me,

my odds would improve at that point. But it’s impossible to know what’s going to happen and I’ve just got to go out and try to lead as many laps as I can, win as often as I can, and see where everyone else’s luck goes,” he said.

SHORT TRACK TEMPERS: Timothy Peters and Brendan Gaughan don’t like each other. The Truck Series drivers had issues at the end of Saturday’s race, and a confrontation after they climbed from their cars had Peters listening and then laughing as Gaughan stormed away. “I can’t help but laugh,” he said. “I guess he just wants me to pull over for him.” Gaughan said the two have a long-running feud that won’t go away. “Him and I have had a lot of problems for a lot of years, and he just added another notch to it,” he said. “When it does come back, it might hurt a little bit. I would like to handle it like a man, but I think he would be too afraid.”

It was harder than he thought it might be after giving up the lead he’d held for 54 laps by pitting for tires with other leaders with 70 laps to go.

Kvitova, Azarenka reach final The Wimbledon champ could take the No. 2 ranking with a victory today in Istanbul. By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA Associated Press Writer

ISTANBUL — Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will play Victoria Azarenka in the WTA Championships final on Sunday with the No. 2 ranking on the line along with a $1.5 million paycheck. Kvitova, a Czech lefthander with booming serves, rallied to defeat U.S. Open winner Samantha Stosur 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 in the semifinals Saturday, while fourth-ranked Azarenka defeated Vera Zvonareva 6-2, 6-3. Kvitova beat Azarenka in the semifinals en route to winning her first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon this year. She’s counting on a psychological edge after defeating Azarenka in both the matches they played this season. “Hopefully, it will be better for me, mentally,” Kvitova said. “We know each other very well.” Azarenka said she’d need to blunt Kvitova’s powerful serve when they meet at the Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul, which is hosting the championships for the first time. Some 12,000 people attended the semifinals. “She really goes for her shots,” said Azarenka, who has won three titles this season. “So sometimes she doesn’t find the rhythm. But at the same time, she can be on and just hit winners.” Against Stosur, Kvitova hit big serves and groundstrokes and moved to the net. In the first set, Stosur capitalized on a pair of service breaks and her own strong

kick serve. Kvitova took early leads in the second and third sets with a power game that has propelled her from outside the top 30 at the start of the year to No. 3. “It was very tough to break her,” Kvitova said. “It was a great match for us.” Azarenka’s solid groundstrokes forced errors from Zvonareva, who was never able to gain momentum in the match. Zvonareva held two break points in the last game, but could not convert them. One game in the second set lasted nearly 12 minutes and end-

ed when the Russian held serve to tie at 2-all, but Azarenka broke her next two service games. “The score doesn’t say much about the game,” Azarenka said. “It was important to be consistent and aggressive, find the right balance.” At 21, Kvitova was the youngest of the four semifinalists and hadn’t dropped a set in the roundrobin phase of the $4.9 million WTA Championships. She beat Stosur in their two previous meetings, including a tough third-round win at the Australian Open this year and a comfortable victory at the 2008 French Open.

WOMEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Baylor opens with No. 1 ranking Penn State, the preseason pick to win the Big Ten, is ranked 12th in the country. By DOUG FEINBERG AP Basketball Writer

Brittney Griner and Baylor are starting the season where they hope to end it — at No. 1. The Lady Bears are ranked at the top for the first time in the preseason women’s basketball poll by The Associated Press. Baylor started last year at No. 2 before ascending to No. 1 in early January for the first time in school history. The Lady Bears finished with a No. 3 ranking. “Certainly we’d rather it was the last ranking, but it’s great recognition for our program and Baylor University,” coach Kim Mulkey said. “Regardless of where you’re ranked at the begin-

ning of the season it’s a positive for your university. We’ll embrace it in such a way and understand that it doesn’t win basketball games.” Baylor received 33 of 40 firstplace votes Saturday from a national media panel. The Lady Bears became the first Big 12 school to be ranked No. 1 to start the season since Texas in 1985 and 1986. Notre Dame drew six firstplace votes and was second, with Tennessee, Connecticut and Stanford rounding out the first five. The No. 2 ranking is the Irish’s best since the final poll of 2001. The Lady Bears could meet the Irish in the Preseason WNIT final in mid-November. They also play the Lady Vols and Huskies before the New Year. “If you have a team capable of playing them, go play them,”

Mulkey said. “This schedule’s extremely tough — the toughest since I’ve been at Baylor.” Notre Dame returns four starters, including sensational guard Skylar Diggins, from last season’s squad that lost to Texas A&M in the national championship game. Tennessee retains most of the team that swept the SEC last season for the conference title. The Lady Vols fell to Notre Dame in the NCAA regional finals last season, missing a Final Four trip for the third year in a row. They’ve never gone four seasons without playing in the Final Four, but coach Pat Summitt has said her players seem even more determined to win a title since she revealed she’d been diagnosed with early onset dementia. Penn State is ranked 12th. The last time the Nittany Lions were ranked this high was in the final poll of 2004, when they were fifth.

Garcia on pace for 2nd consecutive title The Associated Press

SOTOGRANDE, Spain — Sergio Garcia put himself in position for a second straight European Tour victory on Saturday, shooting a 4-under 67 at the Andalucia Masters to take a two-stroke lead after the third round. Garcia had to remove his shoes and socks for a shot during an eventful round that moved him to 6 under 207, ahead of Miguel Angel Jimenez (68) and Christian Nilsson, who matched the lowest round this weekend with a 65. Overnight leader Richie Ramsay bogeyed the last two holes for a 73 that left him three strokes adrift. The 31st ranked Garcia won the Castello Masters last weekend to end a nearly three-year title drought. Garcia nearly hit a hole-in-one at No. 6 as he collected one of six birdies at the famed Valderrama course. Defending champion Graeme McDowell was at 14 over after a round of 81.

Shanghai Masters SHANGHAI — U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy shot a 7-under 65 to increase his lead to three strokes after the third round of the Shanghai Masters. The 22-year-old made seven birdies in another bogey-free round on Lake Malaren’s Jack Nicklaus-designed Masters

course to finish at 18-under 198. Anthony Kim was second after a 65. Noh Seung-yul was 14 under after a 67. Ian Poulter (67) and Hunter Mahan (68) were 11 under, Lee Westwood (70) and Geoff Ogilvy (66) were another stroke back, and Robert Karlsson (72), Padraig Harrington (73) and Y.E. Yang (68) were 6 under.

Pujols decision can wait for now Super slugger has won two World Series with St. Louis By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer

ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols tried to give away nothing during the celebration, tried to stay in the moment. But what a moment it was. Getting another taste of that championship feeling surely will tip the scales in favor of the St. Louis Cardinals at least a little bit when it comes time to talk contract. “Obviously, right now a lot of things go through my head and thinking about the whole season,” Pujols said at the podium after the Cardinals won their 11th World Series. “Probably like two or three

weeks from now, that’s when I’m really going to be sitting down and saying, ’Wow, where we were, and now we’re the 2011 World Champions.’ It’s unbelievable.” What remained of Friday after the Cardinals finished off the Texas Rangers in Game 7 was for savoring one of the most unlikely comebacks in major league history. Hundreds of fans peacefully roamed the downtown streets well into the night. “Truly a dream come true,” manager Tony La Russa said. “It’s hard to really imagine it actually happened.” On Sunday, the team will bask in adulation once again with a victory parade scheduled for late af-

ternoon. In 2006, the team estimated between 300,000 and a half-milllion people lined the streets. Five players remain from 2006, when the Cardinals backed into the postseason as an 83-win team and then got hot when key players got healthy. Pujols, Yadier Molina, Skip Schumaker and Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright remain from that team, which also was lightly regarded. Can’t top 2011. “This team is unbelievable,” Carpenter said after beating the Rangers for the second time. “Most amazing team I’ve ever been a part of.” General manager John Mozeliak takes special satisfaction in the championship. The moves he made at the trade deadline for shortstop Rafael Furcal, starter

Edwin Jackson and three relievers paid off. “All you can do is live and die with your club,” Mozeliak said. “To sit here now and be on top, it’s just a wonderful experience.” Mozeliak can’t celebrate for long, though. “I would say I have about a 72hour window to enjoy this,” Mozeliak said. “And then right back it Monday.” A decision looms: Can the Cardinals persuade Pujols to stay? Would extra millions he might make elsewhere compensate for shedding the role of local icon? He seemed proud about his place in St. Louis after Game 7. “It doesn’t matter the numbers, it doesn’t matter the records, it doesn’t matter the money that you make,” Pujols said. “What matters is to raise that trophy and to be able to bring that smile to

NBA Commissioner David Stern canceled all November games on Friday, the 120th day of the lockout.

Little compromise given at labor talks

Owners, players stand firm as regular season games continue to fall by wayside. By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — Anyone who has been to a car dealership, or bought a home, understands how negotiating works. One side offers a number, the other counters, and they meet somewhere in the middle and make a deal. That’s not the way it’s working in the NBA’s labor standoff — even with potentially $2 billion at stake for each side. Owners and players keep insisting they are ready and willing to make the necessary financial step for an agreement. Yet talks have broken down each of the last two weeks with little movement and the same type of answer: “We’re here, they’re there, and that’s that.” That won’t get players back on the court or fans in the seats. And with both sides so entrenched, it might be a question of when, not if, another round of cancellations will be necessary. “I don’t know,” Commissioner David Stern said Friday when asked about the next deadline. “We just had a difficult day. We’ll go back, we’ll go to the office Monday and see what to do about this big mess.” They could start with a phone call to the players’ association to schedule more talks, and the sides likely will meet again soon. But it will remain pointless if neither side is prepared to offer compromise. Owners are insistent on a 50-50 split of basketball-related income. Players have proposed reducing their guarantee from 57 percent down to 52.5, saying that will transfer more than $1.5 billion to owners over six years. And when neither side would go further Friday, NBA officials said union executive director Billy Hunter ended the session. “Billy said, ‘My phone is ringing off the hook from agents and players telling me I cannot go under 52 percent’ and he said unless you’re willing to go there, we

have nothing to talk about,” Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said. The difference between 50 and 52.5 percent is about $100 million annually, based on last season’s revenues, or $1 billion over the course of the 10-year agreement the NBA is seeking. The cost of not making a deal? “We expect there to be a $2 billion loss for us for the loss of the season, which we will then begin to dig out from under and try to get back, if there were a season’s loss,” Stern said. “And the players would lose $2 billion. Period.” The losses already have been piling up. Stern said wiping out the preseason schedule, which would have ended Friday, cost the league $200 million. The first month of real games adds another couple hundred million, and Hunter has said missing a month would cost the players about $350 million. But that’s not enough to make players agree to a deal they say would cost them money and limit options in free agency. “We think we gave more than enough, and that’s what we constantly said to them: ‘Look, we did what it was you said you needed, we did it,”’ Hunter said. “And now all of a sudden, every time we did it, it’s like their eyes got bigger and they wanted more and more and more. So finally we just had to shut it down and just say it can’t be.” Stern has made it clear that owners’ future proposals could be made with the losses in mind. Players eventually will get their money, just less of it, but the damage to businesses that rely on the game won’t be recovered. The sides are much closer after three straight days of meetings in consecutive weeks. Besides the BRI split, the list of remaining items is down to just a handful, such as the ability of teams over the luxury tax threshold to use the midlevel exception or participate in sign-and-trade deals. Those are important to players. The top-spending teams are mostly the ones in the biggest markets, and players want to know teams in the most desired cities won’t be prevented from bidding on them.

Philadelphia Flyers players, from left, Claude Giroux, Braydon Coburn and Jaromir Jagr celebrate after Scott Hartnell, in goal at right, scored against the Carolina Hurricanes in the first period Saturday in Philadelphia.

Shot of Jagr cures Flyers’ ills By the Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Jaromir Jagr scored two goals and Ilya Bryzgalov rebounded strong in net from a string of bad games to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-1win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. Bryzgalov needed an outing like this one to restore the confidence he said was shot after an 0-4-1 stretch with a 4.62 goals against average. He allowed four goals on 10 shots in relief in Philadelphia’s 9-8 loss to Winnipeg on Thursday. Bryzgalov blamed himself for the defeat, calling it the low point of his career. He was just fine against the Hurricanes. The lone goal he allowed wasn’t even his fault. Scott Hartnell slid headfirst into Bryzgalov in a rush for the puck, knocking the goalie off his feet and on his back, allowing Jussi Jokinen an open look for the tying goal in the second period. Maple Leafs 4, Penguins 3 TORONTO — Phil Kessel scored his league-leading10th goal midway through the third period to lift Toronto past Pittsburgh. Mikhail Grabovski, Tim Connolly and Clarke MacArthur also scored for the Maple Leafs. Matt Cooke, Chris Kunitz and Evgeni Malkin scored for the weary Penguins, who were playing for the13th time in 26 days.

Kessel and Pittsburgh’s James Neal entered the evening tied for the NHL lead in goals. Kessel edged ahead shortly after the Penguins erased their third onegoal deficit of the game and Pittsburgh goalie Jonas Gustavsson made sure it stood up by stacking his pads on a great opportunity by Neal with less than 5 minutes to play.

San Jose has won the first five games of its six-game road trip, which concludes Monday night against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The Islanders have lost five in a row.

Senators 5, Rangers 4, SO NEW YORK — Milan Michalek capped Ottawa’s three-goal comeback in the third period and then netted the only goal in the shootout as the Senators stormed back to beat the New York Rangers and stretch their winning streak to five. Jason Spezza started the rally from a 4-1hole by scoring twice, and Michalek tied it with Ottawa’s third goal in a 7:52 span when he put in his seventh with 2:50 remaining. That wiped out a big day by Rangers top forwards Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik, who were split up as linemates but produced three points each — with Richards scoring twice.

Panthers 3, Sabres 2 BUFFALO, N.Y. — Jason Garrison’s goal snapped a third-period tie and lifted Florida over Buffalo. Marcel Goc and Tomas Fleischmann also scored, and Jose Theodore made 24 saves for the Panthers (6-4-0), who won for the third time in their past four games. Thomas Vanek and Jason Pominville scored, and Ryan Miller finished with 33 saves for the Sabres (6-4-0). Tomas Kopecky added three assists, while Garrison also had an assist.

Sharks 3, Islanders 2, OT UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Brent Burns scored a power-play goal 1:07 into overtime to give surging San Jose a victory over the New York Islanders. Burns slammed a one-timer

Canadiens 4, Bruins 2 MONTREAL — Brian Gionta and David Desharnais scored power-play goals and Carey Price made 26 saves as Montreal extended its winning streak to three with a win over Boston. Lars Eller and Tomas Plekanec also scored for Montreal, which won 2-1in Boston on Thursday night. The Canadiens improved to 4-5-2 after winning only one of

their first eight games. Montreal’s winning streak began after assistant coach Perry Pearn was fired Wednesday prior to the team’s 5-1win over Philadelphia. Lightning1, Jets 0 TAMPA, Fla. — Dwayne Roloson made 28 saves in his 29th career shutout, Vincent Lecavalier scored a power-play goal late in the second period and Tampa Bay beat Winnipeg. Tampa Bay has won12 consecutive games against the AtlantaWinnipeg franchise. The last victory in the series for the relocated Jets came on Oct. 3, 2009, when Atlanta beat Tampa Bay 6-3. Predators 3, Ducks 0 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Pekka Rinne made 20 saves for the Nashville Predators in his100th career win, 3-0 over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night. Rinne set a franchise record with 22 shutouts, two this season. Wild1, Red Wings 0 ST. PAUL, Minn.— Josh Harding made 36 saves and Dany Heatley scored to lift the Minnesota Wild to a1-0 victory over the slumping Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Jimmy Howard made19 saves for the Red Wings, who have lost four games in a row after a 5-0 start.

OUTDOORS OUTDOORS NEWS Reservoirs open to public fishing Pennsylvania American Water and the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission (PFBC) announced the opening of five Pennsylvania American Water reservoirs in Lackawanna County for public fishing. The five new reservoirs that will be open include Curtis, Dunmore No. 1, Elmhurst, Griffin, and Maple Lake. A ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for Oct. 27 was cancelled due to weather conditions. The creation of these new public fishing areas was the result of a partnership between Pennsylvania American Water and the PFBC. “We are very fortunate in this area to benefit from so many natural resources,” said Dan Hufton, senior director, production, Pennsylvania American Water. “This is a fantastic gift to anglers and residents in Northeastern Pennsylvania,” said John Arway, Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission. “We’re excited any time we can open waterways for people to enjoy the sport of fishing. To make five available at one time is simply remarkable.” Shoreline fishing at the reservoirs will be allowed, but wading will not be permitted. Boats will not be permitted on the waterways. Reservoirs will be closed to fishing between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Commonwealth inland fishing rules and regulations and PFBC property regulations apply. The areas open to fishing have been posted with signs indicating the boundaries. Local anglers can expect to find several different and popular sportfish, including bass, trout, perch and other panfish. All five reservoirs are located in Lackawanna County: Curtis (Madison Township); Dunmore No. 1 (Dunmore); Elmhurst (Roaring Brook Township); Griffin (South Abington and Scott townships); and Maple Lake (Spring Brook Township.) They join two other reservoirs in Northeast Pennsylvania previously opened for shoreline fishing: Comfort Pond in Susquehanna County, and Ceasetown Reservoir, located in Jackson and Lehman townships, Luzerne County. Fly fishing film tour Trout Unlimited will sponsor the 2012 edition of the Fly Fishing Film Tour -- the largest film tour of its kind -- with dozens of stops from coast to coast and throughout Canada. “The Fly Fishing Film Tour reaches out to the entire fly fishing realm and offers a bit of an escape to those of us who unfortunately spend more time dreaming than we do fishing,” said Chris Hunt, TU’s director of communications. “That’s the audience that needs to hear TU’s conservation message. It is part of becoming that well-rounded, complete angler we all want to be.” This year’s tour stops will be formally announced in December by the producers. Film screenings will start early in 2012 and likely continue through next fall. “This is a good partnership,” said Chris Keig of the Fly Fishing Film Tour. "We believe that our audience truly believes in conservation and this partnership will allow them to get out and help save and protect their home waters through their local TU chapters and conservation groups.” Fly Fishing Film Tour screenings are very well-attended events, simply because the quality of the filmmaking on display is unmatched. Many of the events take place in more of a “concert” atmosphere, where anglers of all ages mingle with fishing buddies and take in some of the most breathtaking movie-making available today. Anyone interested in organizing a production should call 303-815-1070.

Who let the dogs out? It might be the state legislature, as House Bill 881 would allow for the use of recovery dogs while hunting.

He uses spoils.

Andy Bensing has years of experience using dogs to track wounded deer in other states where the practice is legal. During that time, Bensing has developed a pretty good sense of how a wounded deer acts. He’s tracked enough deer to form an interesting opinion on the longstanding belief that a wounded deer instinctively heads to water. Bensing said that’s not entirely true. “As trackers we’re in agreement that there’s not much to that,” he said. “We do find deer in water, but usually they’re seeking the thick cover that surrounds the water. Generally there is thick cover surrounding streams and swamps, and a wounded deer will cross water to get to those areas. “I don’t hold much credence to the wounded deer to water belief.”

But even in Pennsylvania, when the temperatures are cool for the majority of the archery and rifle deer seasons, using dogs makes just as much sense, Bensing said, simply because it increases the chances of finding and recovering the animal. “The misery of losing an animal is not a good feeling to any hunter,” he said. A tracking dog can help avoid such misery. According to Bensing, is a deer was hit and ran before it died, a tracking dog can find it nine out of 10 times. Bensing said the use of a tracking dog doesn’t require much in the way of regulations. The dog should be on a leash at all times, he said, and that is a requirement in most states that allow the use of tracking dogs for deer. “There’s really no downside to this,” Bensing said. “The animal rights people don’t even argue with us.”

Amendment would allow for use of dogs By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

An amendment to House Bill 881 would allow the use of dogs to track deer. Here’s how the amendment reads: “It shall be lawful to make use of a dog to pursue, chase, scatter and track wild turkeys during the fall wild turkey season or to make use of a leashed blood-tracking dog to

track a white-tailed deer in an attempt to recover an animal which has been legally killed or wounded during any open season for white-tailed deer.” The bill still prohibits the use of a dog for hunting, pursuing, harassing, chasing, scattering or injuring big game. The amended bill is currently before the House Game and Fisheries Committee.

State Rep. Ed Staback, who is the minority chair of the committee, said he supports the concept of using dogs to track deer but has a few concerns. “The problem I have is there’s nothing to certify that a tracking dog works in a silent mode. Using dogs to find wounded deer isn’t a bad idea, but I don’t think other

hunters in the woods would appreciate a barking dog,” he said. Staback also said if the deer is found outside of legal hunting hours and isn’t dead, the law may have to be changed to allow the dog handler to carry a sidearm to dispatch the animal. Such a change may be difficult to accomplish, he said.

The third and final hearing on Sunday hunting was held in Harrisburg on Thursday before members of the House Game and Fisheries Committee. The next step in the process, according to state Rep. Ed Staback, who is minority chairman of the committee, is to determine if there is enough support to move House Bill 1760 to the floor for a vote. HB 1760 would give the Pennsylvania Game Commission the ability to implement Sunday hunting. The issue has attracted both supporters and opponents, and Staback said there are three possible options that could slightly change the bill and increase its chances of being passed. The first option would be to limit Sunday hunting to private land only. That would be a hard sell, Staback said, because not every hunter has access to private property. A second option would limit Sunday hunting to private land and State Game Lands, and not allow it on State Forest lands. Staback said he could support such a change because it would still keep some public property open for Sunday hunting while allowing non-hunters to utilize state forests on Sundays. A third option would make trespassing a primary offense, Staback said, adding as such it would be enforceable by the PGC and would lessen the concerns of private landowners opposed to Sunday hunting. “Currently, someone has to commit a primary Game Law violation first, and then trespass can be tacked on if the person is trespassing,” Staback said. “Trespass right now is a secondary offense.” Eight individuals testified during the five-hour hearing, and an updated report on the financial impact of Sunday hunting was presented. The first financial report on Sunday hunting was written in 2005. That report, according to Staback, determined that Sunday hunting would generate more than $629 million for the state’s economy and create 5,400 jobs. The recent report which was based on data from 2010, predicted that Sunday hunting would generate more than $800 million for the economy, create 7,400 jobs and bring in $57 million in new tax revenue. After the hearing, the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau issued a release reaffirming its “strong opposition” to Sunday hunting and questioned why the bill was still being pushed when it lacks the support of most Pennsylvania residents. Staback said the Game and Fisheries Committee will now decide if the bill should be amended to include on of the three options, along with garnering support, before it moves to the floor. That should happen soon if a Sunday hunting vote is to become a reality. “If we don’t move this by the end of this year, then Sunday hunting is dead,” Staback said.

Monsanto sprouts a produce-seed line By P.J. HUFFSTUTTER Los Angeles Times

CREVE COEUR, Mo. — Monsanto Co., whose genetically modified corn and soybeans have reshaped America’s heartland and rallied a nation of fast-food foes, wants to revolutionize the produce aisle. The agribusiness giant already has quietly stepped into the marketplace with produce

grown from its seeds. Grocery customers are chopping its onions that produce fewer tears, stir-frying its broccoli that decreases cholesterol and biting into tiny orange tomatoes that last longer on the shelf. Soon, people will be thumping melons bred to be a single serving and shucking sweet corn genetically modified to

enable farmers to spray the fields with the company’s weed killer, Roundup. To do this, it’s marrying conventional breeding methods with its vast technological resources to bring about changes in fruits and vegetables in months or years, rather than in decades. Monsanto’s goal: to dominate today’s $3 billion global

market for produce seeds, much as it already has done with corn and soybeans. ”This isn’t a hobby. ... We’re serious about it,” said Monsanto Chief Executive Hugh Grant, who expects the company’s vegetable seed revenue to rival its $1.5 billion soybean business in the coming decade. The move has raised the hackles of some environmental

and organic farming groups that fear it will ultimately squeeze out smaller, independent vegetable seed firms. They also worry that the company will use technology to introduce revolutionary new genes into vegetable plants, just as Monsanto scientists See PRODUCE, Page 3D

COMMUNITY EXCELLENCE

Wilkes-Barre Chamber honoring two local citizens By ANDREW M. SEDER

N

either Gerry O’Donnell nor Ruth Corcoran were born or raised in the Wyoming Valley. But both have come to call the region home, and both are being honored for their efforts to make their adopted community a better place. • O’Donnell, president of MotorWorld Automotive Group, will receive the Distinguished Citizen Award and Cork Restaurant and Corcoran Communications, owned by Ruth Corcoran, will receive the Small Business of the Year Award at the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner meeting on Nov. 15.

The Distinguished Citizen Award is given to individuals who have achieved the highest level of professional excellence and who, at the same time, have given their best for the betterment of the Greater WilkesBarre area. “This award represents recognition of special persons that have made our lives a little brighter and our area better, and Gerry O’Donnell has most certainly done that,” said Robert Snyder, president and chief executive officer of Luzerne Bank. “He gives of his time and talent to countless orga-

nizations in our community, and his creativity, energy and drive have made a difference to so many people that call our region home.” Corcoran Born and raised in Boston, O’Donnell entered the auto industry as a management trainee for Chrysler. As he moved up the ranks, and then on to other auto companies, See HONOR, Page 3D

IF YOU GO The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce’s 127th Annual Dinner will be held on Nov. 15 at Genetti’s Hotel and Conference Center in WilkesBarre. Reservations are $75 for Chamber members and their guests and $95 for non-members. For more information, call 823-2101, ext. 113 or visit www.wilkesbarre.org/ calendar.

Halloween may be over after Monday but the deals certainly aren’t OK, SO TOMORROW is Halloween and you’ll have plenty of candy floating around your house to give away to trick-or-treaters. But when the day is done and all that yummy candy is gone, the real deals will begin. Stores, especially Rite Aid, CVS, Target and Walgreens will be placing those extra left over bags of chocolate, lollipops and candy on the clearance racks. Most of them mark them down 20-30 percent as soon as the day after the holiday. But if you have the patience to wait until next weekend, you may find candy discounted up to 75 percent. Grab them and your wallet, children and dentist will thank you.

A local lesson in questionable gov’t spending

W

By CEZARY PODKUL The Washington Post

When the city of Chesapeake, Va., considered closing a crumbling, 80-year-old bridge over the Elizabeth River in 2008, local officials knew that neither the state nor the federal government would pay for a replacement. Just tearing down the old one would cost millions of dollars. So they sold it. “We paid them $10,” said Bob Hellman, one of the investors, but “what we gave them wasn’t just $10.” Hellman’s investors group, American Bridge Partners, agreed to remove the old bridge and to build a brand-new one, solely with private money. Tolls of about $2 a trip, up from the old 75cent fee, will pay back the company’s $130 million investment in the new South Norfolk Jordan Bridge, due to open in the spring. “This is a Christmas gift for the city,” said Chesapeake Mayor Alan Krasnoff. It’s a gift cities and states are asking for more than ever. The goal is not to raise cash by selling public infrastructure but to tap into the private sector for money to build bridges, roads or tunnels — possibly faster and cheaper than the government otherwise could. There are at least 70 privately funded and managed infrastructure projects across the United States in various stages of development, according to a list compiled by the law firm Allen & Overy. These are part of a vast network of roads, bridges and tunnels — to say nothing of the subways, ports, airports and water systems — crying out for attention. Consider this: Over the past 60 years, the United States has built a 46,876-mile federal highway system that is now in dire need of repair. As a result, states have had to pour more of their transportation dollars into fixing aging highways and even in good times have little or nothing left over for new construction. The Great Recession made that harder. In many cases, financially strapped states and cities have little choice but to turn to the pri-

ith budget cutting all the rage in Washington, it might be instructive to look back at a project that ran through millions in taxpayer funds, shifted focus in midstream and produced a self-congratulatory “legacy report” long on rhetoric but short on concrete accomplishments. Wall Street West was born from disruption in financial markets caused by the 9/11 tragedy. Two years after terrorists slammed hijacked jets into the World Trade Center, federal agencies that oversee the nation’s financial system suggested (remember that verb) that stock and bond exchanges and traders have backup systems outside of the New York Metropolitan area. That arrangement could potentially avoid a shutdown like the weeklong hiatus that followed the attacks. Some local economic development and education leaders sensed an opportunity. To allow instantaneous copying of information, the backup facilities had to be within 100 miles of New York, an area that included the nine Pennsylvania counties that would make up Wall Street West. Congressman Paul Kanjorski, who held a position of influence on a financial services committee, already had a blueprint in place. It all came together in a successful pitch for a federal grant that would provide $15 million over three years. It seemed the area was on the brink of an economic renaissance, as visions of data centers, plush offices and high salaries danced in our heads. It was up to us only to provide a cadré of trained workers to show up for the jobs that were on the way. There was one big problem, though; as much sense as the recommendations made, the target firms did not have to implement them. The leaders of Wall Street West, then, were left with a “build it and they will come” strategy. But little was built and few jobs came. One of the few concrete examples of success is profiled in the opening pages of the legacy report. A local employee of Site2, a business continuity company in Scranton, interned at the company while studying at Johnson College, with his second year funded by a Wall Street West program. He eventually completed his studies and was hired. He’s still there, said Site2 co-founder Mark Magdon. But Site2 isn’t here because of Wall Street West, and neither is any other company that comes to mind. Site2 started in 2004 “in my basement in Archbald,” Magdon said. And while the firm was part of the Wall Street West milieu, “nothing really evolved.” Today that heralded employee, who Magdon said “hit the ground running” because of his training, is one of four at Site2. And the company, recognizing reality, is not after huge financial services firms but smaller support businesses that need its services but not the expensive high-speed backup envisioned by Wall Street West. So, was Wall Street West a classic boondoggle or a good idea whose promise was stymied by the Great Recession? To me, it’s a little of both, and a lesson for the future. Just as in business, government is going to miss its target from time to time. This, though, seemed like a classic case of too much money made available with too little discipline. Handing out millions to local officials with only squishy dreams as the goal is no longer acceptable. What may be is targeting funds like this toward real training for real jobs that exist in the real economy. I hope the leadership in Washington grasps this soon, before it’s too late.

his family also moved. From New England to New Jersey, California to Florida, the Motor City to the Steel City, he and his wife Barbara and their four children never stayed in any one place very long. When he took a job for MotorWorld in 1996, he thought he’d be in the Wilkes-Barre region for a few years and then move along. Instead, he’s spent nearly 16 years here — the second longest he’s ever lived in one place. And he’s made sure his time here has been well-spent. “We came here for the opportunity,” O’Donnell said while sitting in his office that’s clad in Boston Red Sox décor. “And I love what I’m doing and I love the area.” He said he made an effort to get both himself and the company involved in the community “right on” from the time he moved here. “This is a small community and MotorWorld needs to be involved. If we’re going to be successful then the community needs to be successful,” O’Donnell, of Shavertown, said. Growing up in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston, he said his parents told him that in life he’ll encounter “‘people with more, people with less. Your responsibility is to help the people with less.’ Those words are still with me.” His involvement includes serving on multiple boards of directors including at area colleges and nonprofit organizations. MotorWorld has been active in raising money for the Red Cross, the Osterhout Library and The Times Leader’s Newspapers In Education program.

Heart was where she would remain. Neighbors, new friends and co-workers went out of their way to help her and she never forgot that assistance. She does what she can to this day to help others in the community. “I am very community minded now,” the 48-year-old Bear Creek Township resident said. “I have to give back. I am this way because people were so good to me at that time.” With a background in banking – she worked at both PNC and then Mellon – Corcoran began a public relations firm as a way to create a schedule and workload that would allow time with her children. Along the way, she met Bill Corcoran, owner of Corcoran Printing, and the two married. Then her other love – food – entered her life. “I look at eating as a kind of event,” she said. “And it seemed like the time was right.” She opened Cork Restaurant and made sure her dining area was made available for groups to meet at and to be used for fundraisers for community organizations. David Payne, the chamber’s chairman who works at PNC Capital Markets, praised Corcoran’s business and community acumens. “Ruth is one of those rare people that not only runs one successful small business but two. Not only is Cork a wonderful restaurant, but it serves as host facility for many special events that benefit nonprofits throughout the area,” Payne said. “She has that combination of professional excellence and commitment to community that we look for in this award.” Corcoran said “I strongly believe we have to give back when we can. I’m lucky I’m able to do that.”

have done in corn, soybeans and cotton. “Clearly, the company wants to keep its options open,” said Doug Gurian-Sherman, senior scientist with the food and environmental program at Union of Concerned Scientists. ”But I think they understand it’s a dicey proposition to move into (genetically engineered) foods that are widely consumed, rather than foods that are highly processed or used as animal feed.” Monsanto officials said the opportunities for growth in the vegetable seed market were too good to ignore. They said there were plenty of ways to use technology to design better-tasting vegetables, yet avoid the financial and consumer hurdles that would inevitably come with rolling out genetically engineered produce for a grocery store. The amount of arable land worldwide is dwindling, while the world’s population is forecast to jump to more than 9 billion by 2050 from nearly 6.9 billion today. Shifts in weather patterns have caused recent slumps in key crops. All this, in turn, has waterstrapped countries eager to establish secure food supplies. Fastgrowing economies, such as those in India and China, also are stepping up food imports to feed a burgeoning middle class. Given these factors, Monsanto is making a multibillion-dollar bet that global farming conditions are going to get tougher and farmers are going to be hungry for their vegetable and fruit seeds. Monsanto moved aggressively into the vegetable business in 2005 when it bought seed powerhouse Seminis Inc. in Oxnard, Calif. Since then, it has acquired four other vegetable seed companies, opened 57

research centers worldwide and hired a slew of seed geneticists and agricultural researchers. Today, Monsanto has about 4,000 employees — nearly a fifth of its 21,000 global labor force — working on its vegetable seed business worldwide. Monsanto officials are quick to stress that they are not creating genetically modified crops. In its Roundup Ready soybeans, for example, Monsanto developed seedlings with genes from a soil bacterium to help the plant to survive being sprayed with its herbicide. With vegetables, scientists are looking for answers in the same, or similar, varieties of plants. So a trait in one pepper, such as flavor, might be meshed with the DNA of another pepper. The technique has been helpful developing vegetable plants that can withstand certain pests, said Consuelo Madere, vice president of Monsanto’s global vegetable group. But some scientists say this is genetic modification — just a different type. “What they really are doing is creating something where the probability is very low that it would have happened in nature without human intervention,” said R. Paul Thompson, director of graduate studies at the University of Toronto’s department of ecology and evolutionary biology.

OFFICE COACH

Explaining one’s past employment By MARIE G. MCINTYRE McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Q.: About seven years ago, I worked part-time at an afterschool day care program. My employment was terminated after I complained to a parent about her child’s unruly behavior. Since then, I have run a small homebased business but plan to start looking for work now that my children are in school. I have recently heard that the day care company now claims I never worked there. If I list this job on applications, I’m afraid employers may think I’m lying about my work history. I could show my old pay stubs as proof during an interview, but how do I avoid being screened out during the application process? -- Erased A.: I think you can stop worrying, because most employers don’t check background information until an applicant has made the final cut and is considered a viable candidate. You should therefore have ample opportunity to explain this unusual circumstance during the interview process. First, however, you need to determine if the rumor is actually true. This can be easily accomplished by calling the company and asking to verify your dates of employment. If they insist you never worked there, the reason is probably poor record-keeping, not some nefarious plot. To explain the situation, just make a brief statement at the end of your interviews. For example: “In case you do a background check, I wanted to let you know that ABC Daycare apparently doesn’t retain old personnel records. Since they can’t verify my employment, I brought pay stubs showing the dates that I worked there.” If you need additional verification, consider using W-2 forms from your tax return or your record of employment from the Social Security Administration. In reality, the daycare center’s shoddy documentation may work to your advantage. If no one recalls your employment, then you don’t need to worry about how they might describe your departure. Q: I work with a group of people who goof off a lot, take frequent coffee breaks, and make prank calls to our customer service employees. The owner of the company is at a different location, so whenever he pulls into our parking lot, the security guard calls and tells everyone to get back to work. I would like to blow the whistle on their little game, but when another employee wrote the owner about this unprofessional behavior, he never responded. His assistant may have intercepted the email, because she is one of the biggest culprits. What can I do about this? -- Disgusted A: Although your coworkers are acting like a bunch of silly, irresponsible children, the main question is whether their antics are interfering with your own job performance. If so, then you need to talk with your manager. But if not, your best option may be to simply ignore these clowns and go about your business. While your concern for productivity is commendable, that problem really belongs to the owner, who is obviously doing a dreadful job of managing this company. Since that’s unlikely to change, you may want to find an employer who can appreciate your professionalism.

the past decade, thanks largely to the world’s largest pensions, which have come to view infrastructure as a separate investment category, much like a stock or a bond. Precise estimates are hard to pin down, but in the past five years, the 30 biggest investors in infrastructure have channeled as much as $180 billion into

these types of investments, according to Infrastructure Investor magazine. These investors include Macquarie, as well as some of the largest pension plans in Europe, Australia and Canada. More capital is on the way. There are 100 private funds seeking to raise $95 billion for infrastructure investments globally, according to a tally by San Francisco-based fund adviser Probitas Partners, though not all of them will succeed. Of that, about $11.5 billion would be targeted for the United States, with

fund sizes ranging from $100 million to $3 billion. The main draw for investors, DePonte said, is the steady, predictable income that infrastructure assets can provide. People need to get to work, use electricity and flush toilets, so a toll road, an electric utility or a water utility tends to deliver cash no matter what happens in the stock market on any given day. Recent research by Macquarie shows infrastructure has outperformed the global stock market by an average of about 0.5 percent per month in the past 10

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com years. “Traffic on the road is highly insensitive to stock market levels,” said Chris Camarsh, head of investment process at Australian fund manager CP2. That makes infrastructure a good way to save for one’s nest egg, since “there is good predictability that the cash will be there when you’re older,” he said. Camarsh, for example, holds shares in Transurban, an Australian toll road developer that owns an 85-year contract to build and operate an expansion of the Capital Beltway in Fair-

fax. “It’s my retirement,” he said. That has helped lure Canada’s $52 billion Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System, which provides retirement benefits to more than 400,000 members. It has devoted about $8.25 billion, or 16 percent, of its portfolio to infrastructure because it “matches the long-term returns that we need for the pension plan,” said Michael Nobrega, chief executive of OMERS. The pension fund bid — unsuccess fully — for the Chicago Skyway and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

MarketPulse SEARCH FOR RETURNS Traders and individual investors have always looked for new ways to predict the market’s direction. They might want to look to the Internet, or so says a new study by researcher Ilaria Bordino and others. Bordino looked at the stocks in the Nasdaq 100 and checked how many people searched for them on Yahoo. The study found that shortly after searches for a specific stock spiked, trading volume also jumped. The method isn’t a way to beat the market -- it shows which stocks are already getting the most attention. But the study argues that by looking at how much coverage a stock is getting on search engines, economists can predict a stock market panic. If Internet users are searching for a stock in unusual numbers, it could mean that media attention is driving that stock in a specific direction.

BETTER THAN AVERAGE Dollar-cost-averaging might sound intimidating if you don’t spend your days studying investing strategy, but the basic idea is simple. You invest in a stock or asset over a period of time. That can mitigate the losses you suffer if the market plunges the day after you invest a lump sum. At least, that’s the theory. It works only in certain circumstances, says a study conducted by boutique investment firm Alliance Bernstein. The study showed that when the overall stock market is doing extremely poorly, investors were able to hold on to more of their money by using dollar-cost-averaging. But most of the time, when the market is doing well or just so-so, the method resulted in investors losing wealth.

BUMP AT THE TOP It’s a well-known adage: The rich just keep getting richer. New research shows that it’s more than just a saying. According to a study released last week by the Congressional Budget Office, salaries for the top-tier earners grew more than any other group between 1979 and 2007. They chose to analyze the period between those two years so they could compare years that were in similar economic cycles (both preceded a recession).

Looking up Patrick Dunkerley, lead manager of the Scout Mid Cap fund (UMBMX), sees several positives for stocks, including a recovering U.S. economy and fewer worries that China’s economic growth will sharply slow. His fund has returned an annual 30.5 percent over the last three years, through Thursday. That makes it the fourth-best mid-cap blend fund over that period, according to Morningstar. Mid-cap blend funds have returned an average of 22.7 percent over that time.

InsiderQ&A

A lot of mid-cap companies don’t even do business in Europe, yet their stock prices are affected by worries about the region’s debt crisis. Investors in the U.S. are being held hostage by the headlines in Europe. When the headlines are good, markets rise. When the headlines aren’t, markets fall. But the fundamentals of the company matter more in the long run.

Shipping Forecast But the companies aren’t quite in synch in their outlook. UPS said in its earnings report Tuesday that the economy appears healthier than it did a few months ago. UPS reiterated its earnings forecast for the year. FedEx was less optimistic last

month. It lowered its forecast. But it also said customers weren’t panicking. And Monday, it predicted shipments would rise 12 percent during the holiday season from 2010. Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors, said the shipping companies’ assessments sug-

gest we’re not headed for another recession. “It reconfirms the other data that seems to point to a better economy,” he said. And Kurt Rankin, an economist at PNC Financial Services Group, said the companies are indicating that consumer spending remains strong.

A look at what FedEx and UPS had to say:

FedEx doesn’t expect the economy to fall into another recession. But, "we expect sluggish economic growth will continue” around the world, CEO Fred Smith said last month. FedEx cut its earnings forecast for its fiscal year, which ends in May. That indicated it expects slower economic growth into 2012. Still, its announcement Monday that it expects a big increase in shipments was heartening for economists — and investors. They sent the stock up nearly 3 percent.

UPS sounds more optimistic than it did Sept. 15, when it warned of a “bumpy ride.” CEO Scott Davis said, “We have had a lot of good economic reports in the U.S.” He said retail sales look better, unemployment claims are improving, manufacturing is getting better and banks are lending more. “We feel a little bit better,” he said. UPS repeated its forecast that the economy will grow between 1 percent and 3.5 percent in the second half of the year.

You also own Expedia, whose stock has been volatile. It’s been a laggard. They’re upgrading the Expedia.com website, and they did this with the hotels.com website with good results. We’re positive on that change. They’re spinning off their TripAdvisor businesses, and that could come even this quarter possibly.

But wouldn’t a weak economy mean fewer vacation and business travel plans, which would mean less business for Expedia? The U.S. economy is picking up. ... There’s plenty of liquidity to get the economy growing. Interest rates are low, so the people who can afford to can refinance their home. Things are getting a little better. It may not feel like it (because the unemployment rate has been at or above 9 percent since April.)

Small stocks, big potential

Smaller companies are beginning to look more appealing to investors. The Standard & Poor’s 600 index, a benchmark for small-cap stocks, is up 18 percent this month. That’s more than the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, which is up 14 percent. Investors buy small caps when they’re willing to take on risk. While small companies typically have less cash on hand to weather economic downturns, they’re attractive because they have more growth prospects ahead of them. Lori Calvasina, a research analyst at Credit Suisse, put out a report on Thursday urging investors to consider smaller stocks. She noted that small caps typically outperform large-caps over time. So this screen, powered by FactSet, highlights companies in the small-cap Standard & Poor’s 600 index that have risen the most this year. All the stocks have target prices that suggest they have additional room to rise. SOURCE: FactSet

One of your stocks, HealthSpring, jumped 34 percent in one day last week after getting bought. Takeovers have been happening here and there. Lubrizol was bought out of the fund in the first quarter. Now HealthSpring in this quarter. What they have in common is they’re good businesses that generate lots of cash, and companies like to buy them.

Treasury prices plunged on news that Europe settled on a plan to contain the Greek debt crisis. That made traders more confident about buying stocks and less likely to seek safety in government debt. They rose again on Friday, when analysts raised questions about the plan. The yield on the 10-year Treasury, which moves opposite its price, fell to 2.32 percent.

You own several consumer stocks. Should investors pay more attention to what consumers are saying (they’re pessimistic), or what they’re doing (spending has held up)? Probably what they’re doing. In the consumer space, we like companies not so much for a macro reason but just because we like the companies. That’s really a stock picker’s sector. In staples, we like Herbalife. They sell weight-loss and nutrition products in 76 countries. The key drivers of their fundamentals are (increasing numbers of people fighting) weight gain, particularly in emerging markets. People need weight loss solutions. Their formula and (meal replacement) shake is doing really well. They have a new marketing strategy where consumers pay daily, rather than pay for monthly supply. They’re bringing their manufacturing of product in house. That should help their profit margins.

IN THE ARENA

RICHARD L. CONNOR

KEVIN BLAUM

OPINION

Now’s the time to bring county back to health

A devotion to journalism that’s lifelong

HIPPOCRATES of ancient Greece wrote that, “Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” Time, and opportu-

nity. Hippocrates has long been considered the father of modern medicine. He is thought to have survived to the age of 90, possibly even 100, after spending nearly 20 years in Greek prisons for his scientific beliefs. His writings and teachings gave life to the “Hippocratic Oath,” a physicians’ creed meant to guide the mind and healing hand of his students, followed to this very day. The body politic of Luzerne County also needs to heal. But in this region, at this time, on this Election Day, it is you the voter, and only those so registered, that are licensed to treat the critically ill patient upon the table. The future of so many depends upon the mind and healing hand of thousands of voters who will make their way to the polls in nine days and apply the civic remedy to heal the sickness. “Healing is a matter of time.” If that is so, over the last 12 months your time has been spent well. The members of a Government Study Commission, that you approved, recommended a new constitution that called for establishing an entirely new government for Luzerne County, and you adopted it. In May, the two major parties nominated their candidates for the 11 important seats on the crucial county council that you created. Your message of hope and reform also enticed three Independents and three Libertarian candidates to join race. Among their many responsibilities, the 11 people ultimately elected to county council will choose the county manager who will run the show. The man or woman so selected will become the CEO, COO, governor and preeminent leader of Luzerne County. Elect the wrong candidates to county council and you might well see the coronation of a well-connected, goodole-boy as county manager, retuning everything back to the future and the stumbling, fumbling, bumbling days of yesteryear. “Healing is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” If that is true, the rare opportunity, to lock in the reforms and hope you have long cherished, now awaits you. For neither the Republicans, nor the Democrats nominated 11 well-qualified individuals for the difficult and complex job of governing this large county. If the county council is to be the very best, it requires that we vote for a blend of Republican, Democratic and Independent council candidates. Therefore, regardless of your political affiliation, will you join in this historic opportunity and vote for the very best that each party has to offer? After a year of study and careful consideration, “In the Arena” is prepared to endorse 11 individuals for election to the 11 seats on Luzerne County Council. Surprisingly, perhaps fortuitously, the roll call of the very best includes four Republicans, four Democrats, one Libertarian and two Independent candidates. To begin the healing process, to lead Northeastern Pennsylvania toward a better and brighter future, “In the Arena” enthusiastically endorses the following candidates for Luzerne County Council: Rick Morelli John Ruckno Harry Haas Eugene Kelleher Jim Bobeck Edward Brominski Jane Walsh-Waitkus Elaine Maddon Curry Tim Mullen Jere Packard Rick Williams Feel free to clip this list and carry these 11 names with you to the polls on Nov. 8. Let the healing begin. VOTE. Kevin Blaum’s column on government, life and politics appears every Sunday. Contact him at kblaum@timesleader.com.

Towns see crime surge amid gas boom

OWANDA, Pa. — In a modern-day echo of the raucous Old West, small towns enjoying a boom in oil and gas drilling are seeing a sharp increase in drunken driving, bar fights and other hell-raising, blamed largely on an influx of young men who find themselves with lots of money in their pockets and nothing to do after they get off work.

Authorities in Pennsylvania and other states are quick to point out that the vast majority of workers streaming in are lawabiding. But they also say the drilling industry has brought with it a hard-working, hard-drinking, rough-and-tumble element that, in some places, threatens to overwhelm law enforcement. Some police departments are trying to hire more officers but are hard-pressed to compete with the industry for applicants. “On one hand, we need to count our blessings,” said Sheriff Scott Busching of Williams County, N.D. “On the other hand, we need to see if we can control this so it isn’t chickens one day and feathers the next. ... We have come to the point here where we’re almost overwhelmed. It’s very close.” In Bradford County, Pennsylvania’s most heavily drilled county in the 3-yearold rush to tap the Marcellus Shale, the nation’s largest-known natural gas reservoir, the stream of men from Texas, Ok-

MORE THAN FIVE years ago I returned to Wilkes-Barre to buy The Times Leader. On Friday I announced my departure by the end of the year from the Wilkes-Barre Publishing Company, which I founded in 2006, resurrecting the former name of the local newspaper firm. These have been fulfilling years. If our company had not bought The Times Leader in 2006, there was a real fear that more than 200 persons would lose their jobs. Painfully, we have had to adjust to economic conditions and downsize our employee force, but our businesses have survived and are well-positioned for the future. We brought back solid journalism and have served our communities and nonprofits generously. At the same time, we have laid a new foundation for the business, investing in digital infrastructure, increasing paid, daily and Sunday circulation, bringing advertisers back in the fold, and even starting new newspapers such as Go Lackawanna. This is a difficult business these days, but there are still many opportunities to improve journalism, better serve our communities and transition digital journalism into a solid financial business model. There are still a large number of news readers and advertisers. Newspapers have a gloomy future in big city markets but smaller, regional newspapers and websites continue to have bright futures. The media business, both broadcast and print, has usually been slow to adapt to change but eventually it does and it succeeds. That trend will continue because we employ the best journalists in the world and talented sales executives. Advertising pays the bills and, luckily, still works. When a person says they are leaving a job there comes the inevitable question: what are you going to do next? I’ve been in the media business for 40 years and intend to be in it for at least another 20. Just like one of my friends, the late Russell Wiggins, editor of The Washington Post and later, owner of a small country weekly, I plan to work in this business into my nineties. I knew another newspaper owner who died at ninety-something at his desk — on a Saturday night, no less. As for the Wyoming Valley, well, I’ve never left - at least in my heart. My best friends are still here. We own a home here and will continue to own that home. We will continue to do our work here. News is my avocation and hobby. Being in this business has the benefits and thrill of free enterprise, but the real satisfaction comes in addressing political and social ills. What comes next for me will be to continue to devote my efforts to journalism, fairness in reporting, and the challenge we all face of building a solid digital business foundation for this industry.

OUR ENDORSEMENT: LUZERNE COUNTY COUNCIL

These candidates can help new government succeed

G

IVE LUZERNE COUNTY a fighting chance by voting for these 11 candidates to serve on its first county council. • James Bobeck • Elaine Maddon Curry • Harry Haas • Eugene Kelleher • Michael Lacey • Tim McGinley • Rick Morelli • Jeremy Packard • Stephen A. Urban • Jane Walsh-Waitkus • Rick Williams These men and women, many of whose names and faces might not be familiar to you, are among 28 county residents vying to serve on the 11-person council – a startup group that in January will replace the traditional commissioner trio and take the reins of county government. It’s a massive change for Luzerne County, a chance for a fresh start. Voters will make their picks Nov. 8, deciding which contenders from the field will get one of the $8,000-peryear council posts. Choose with care – which is to say, better than some voters did during the May primaries when several stellar candidates were snubbed in favor of certain sub-par and mediocre ones. Since then, the field has been further

shuffled by the addition of third-party candidates. Bottom line: There’s still an opportunity for voters to install a sensational county council; there’s also a chance they’ll blow it by resorting to old habits. If you vote for a county council candidate solely because of his or her political party affiliation, you could be making a mistake. Ditto if your decision is based purely on geography; just because the candidate lives in your corner of the county, doesn’t make him or her capable of doing this job. In fact, if you vote for someone simply because the candidate is a former classmate or a coach, a fellow club member or a coworker, a “friend of a friend” or the photogenic sort, you could be setting up the county for all kinds of trouble. At this critical time in its history, as it tries to recover from stunning corruption and staggering debt, Luzerne County will not be best served by a full Democratic slate. Or the full Republican slate. Or the union-backed slate. Or any other pre-packaged, pre-approved, agenda-oriented “team” of candidates. Luzerne County needs independent-thinking, reform-minded leaders to serve on council. It needs moderate voices, people who are willing to lis-

ten to – and consider – a variety of viewpoints. It needs people with relevant experience in running businesses and overseeing big operations. (This is, after all, a county government with nearly 1,700 workers and an annual budget of about $125 million.) Most important, Luzerne County needs council members who are brainy but not lacking in common sense. The Times Leader’s endorsement board feels these 11 candidates fit the bill perfectly. They are the best-suited of the bunch to represent Luzerne County’s 300,000-plus residents. The council’s initial members will tackle the arduous task of implementing the home rule charter approved by voters last year. They will be responsible for hiring a county manager, someone with the enormous responsibility of running the county’s day-today operations. Council members also will appoint area residents to Luzerne County’s

many critical authorities, board and commissions. Each month, they’ll convene at least two public meetings to conduct the public’s business: approving a county budget, its tax rate, union contracts and policies. The new council members should not – indeed, under the rules of the charter, dare not – micromanage, interfering in the workaday tasks of county employees. The 11 council posts, although considered “part-time offices,” will be nothing of the sort for several months, even years, if the officeholders are truly intent on getting Luzerne County on solid footing. Can other council contenders, those who didn’t get our recommendation, do an admirable job? No doubt. The field includes many fine people with keen understandings of the issues. Are there a few entrants who, while perhaps well-intentioned, probably don’t belong in this race? Afraid so.

Our endorsement board’s members can say this with authority, having interviewed all of the candidates who accepted invitations to meet with us in the spring (46 of them), and again this month (24 of them). We asked them about their educational backgrounds and careers. We questioned them on potential conflicts of interest, basic county operations and their views on a variety of important subjects: contract negotiations, county services and debt. (You can view these interviews by visiting www.timesleader.com.) To identify the best of the best for these important council offices, The Times Leader devoted more staff time and effort this year than any other news outlet. We did it because The Times Leader had vigorously advocated for home rule’s adoption last year and we want to see this new style government succeed. We did it because it’s part of our public service mission to provide thoughtful endorsements. We winnowed the field of contenders to this 11 because we care deeply about this county, its reputation and its residents’ welfare. We did it, frankly, because we live here, too. And we desperately want good government. We hope you do as well. Vote wisely.

JAMES BOBECK

EUGENE KELLEHER

MICHAEL LACEY

TIM MCGINLEY

The Butler Township resident, 64, served for eight years on the Hazleton Area School Board, overseeing a budget and staff comparable to Luzerne County’s government. She works as supervisor of library services for the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance. "I think that I bring a level of experience to the table," she said, "and I come with a background that would help us with this new beginning."

The Wilkes-Barre resident, 36, teaches history at Dallas Middle School. He also serves as an instructor of a citizenship class for Luzerne County Community College in Hazleton. "We need people (on county council) who are going to come in and work together as adults," he said, "to balance the budget, to bring decency and respect back to the county …"

The Kingston resident, 31, won the admiration of many people for capably serving as chairman of Luzerne County’s Home Rule Transition Committee, charged with crafting policies and laying groundwork for the incoming county council members. An attorney for a Plymouth firm, he would be an invaluable asset to the council when it takes charge in January. "We all have to be on the same page," he said.

The Dallas Township resident, 67, is a retired mathematics teacher and formerly served on Plymouth’s borough council. He knows numbers and expresses a desire to see a significant shift in the way this debt-heavy county operates. "We need an electorate who will commit to vote for people who are not politicians, but those who are willing to be servants, do their job and not worry about being re-elected," he said.

The Franklin Township resident, 53, has owned a pharmacy in Freeland for 17 years. He advocates for a "team effort" between county employees and the new council. "We need … to have that dialogue with the folks that are working in the county, because I think they hold a lot of the answers to improving budget issues, (bringing) new ideas."

The Kingston resident, 64, is a former chemistry teacher, now working as director of administration for the Commission on Economic Opportunity, based in Wilkes-Barre. He knows the delicate nature of group dynamics. "I know we have to build a consensus among the council members, and we have to work at that … so that everybody can support the decisions that come out of the council."

The other candidates

RICK MORELLI

JEREMY PACKARD

JANE WALSH-WAITKUS STEPHEN A. URBAN

The Sugarloaf Township resident, 40, is the only candidate in the field who can claim to have been with home rule since the beginning, serving on both the Luzerne County Government Study Commission and the subsequent transition committee. Aside from valuable knowledge, he has an independent streak. "I’m no one’s rubber stamp," he said. "I’m going to be vocal and that’s what I’m going to continue to bring to the table."

The Kingston resident, 73, retired as president of Wyoming Seminary in 2007. He is an adjunct, part-time history faculty member at Misericordia University in Dallas Township. He joined the campaign as an Independent candidate. "If there is no independent voice on some issues," he said, "there’s no question that party loyalty and party persuasiveness will influence the formation of a majority."

The Dorrance Township resident, 63, works as an English and American studies professor at Penn State Hazleton. She formerly owned a real estate company and previously served as president of Laflin’s borough council. "I know how to budget, I know how to manage," she said. "I know what to look for when we need to hire people."

The Wilkes-Barre resident, 59, has served as a Luzerne County commissioner since 2000 and participates on the Home Rule Transition Committee. His knowhow about county operations could spare the new council from many blunders. "I’ve always believed that you have to have some core competency before you make a vote," he said. "You should know the facts before you speak, and I’m willing to share that information with other council members."

These 17 council candidates didn’t win our endorsement board’s support but they did earn our respect merely for running: Michelle Bednar, Brian Bergman (who did not interview during October with The Times Leader), Edward Brominski, Michael Cabell, Kathleen Dobash, Joyce DombroskiGebhardt (did not interview), Blythe Evans III (did not inRICK WILLIAMS terview), Charles Hatchko, William “Bill” James, Salvatore The Kingston resident, 64, is Licata, Linda McClosky Houck, a partner in a Wilkes-Barre M.

Gaddafi made choice that sealed his fate YOU’VE GOT your Mexican standoff, your Russian roulette, your Chinese water torture. And now, your Libyan crossfire. That’s when a pistol is applied to the head and a bullet crosses from one temple to the other. That’s apparently what happened to Moammar Gaddafi after he was captured by Libyan rebels – died in a “crossfire,” explains Libya’s new government. This has greatly agitated ACLU types, morally unemployed ever since a Democratic administration declared Guantanamo humane. The indignation has spread to human rights groups and Western governments, deeply concerned about the manner of Gaddafi’s demise. Let’s begin at the beginning. Early in the revolution, Gaddafi could have had due process. Indeed, he could have had something better: asylum (in Nicaragua, for example) with a free pass for his crimes. If he stepped down, thereby avoiding the subsequent civil war that killed thousands of his countrymen, he could have enjoyed a nice fat retirement, like that of Idi Amin in Saudi Arabia. Like Amin, Gaddafi would not have deserved a single day of untroubled repose. Such an outcome would itself have been a gross violation of justice, as he’d have gone unpunished for his uncountable crimes. But it would have spared his country much bloodshed and suffering. Such compromises are fully justified and rather common. They are, for example, the essence of the various truth and reconciliation commissions in countries transitioning from authoritarianism to democracy. In post-Pinochet Chile and post-apartheid South Africa, it was decided that full justice – punishing the guilty – would be sacrificed in order to preserve the fragile social peace of the new democracy. The former oppressors having agreed to a peaceful relinquishing of power, full justice might have ignited renewed civil strife. Therefore, these infant democracies settled for mere truth: a meticulous accounting of the crimes of the previous regime. In return for truthful testimony, perpetrators were given amnesty. Under the normal rule of law, truth is only a means for achieving justice, not an end

COMMENTARY CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER in itself. The real end is determining guilt and assigning punishment. But in war and revolution one cannot have everything. Justice might threaten peace. Therefore peace trumps full justice. Gaddafi could have had such a peace-over-justice compromise. He chose instead to fight to the death. He got what he chose. That fateful decision to fight – and kill – is the prism through which to judge the cruel treatment Gaddafi received in his last hours. It is his refusal to forgo those final crimes, those final shellings of civilians, those final executions of prisoners that justifies his rotten death. He could have taken a de facto amnesty for all his previous crimes, from Pan Am 103 to the 1996 massacre of 1,200 inmates at Tripoli’s Abu Salim prison. To reject that option and proceed to create an entirely new catalog of crimes – for that there is no forgiveness. For that you are sentenced to die by “crossfire.” So he was killed by his captors. Big deal. So was Mussolini. So were the Ceausescus. They deserved far worse. As did Gaddafi. In a world of perfect justice, this Caligula should have suffered far more, far longer. He inflicted unimaginable suffering upon thousands. What did he suffer? Perhaps an hour of torment and a shot through the head. By any standard of cosmic justice, that’s mercy. Moreover, Gaddafi’s sorry end has one major virtue: deterrence. You are a murderous dictator with a rebellion on your hands. You have a choice. Relinquish power and spare your country further agony, and you can then live out your days like Amin – or like a more contemporary Saudi guest, Tunisia’s Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali. Otherwise, you die like Gaddafi, dragged from a stinking sewer pipe, abused, taunted and shot. Call it the Gaddafi Rule: Give it up and go, or one day find death by “Libyan crossfire.” Followed by a Libyan state funeral. That’s when you lie on public view for four days, half-naked in a meat locker. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@charleskrauthammer.com.

Empty house becomes home for needy family THERE ARE certain sounds that are pure childhood joy. One is the clomping of little feet up the stairs. Another is the squeal of delight. Earlier this month, in a freshly renovated house in Detroit, those two sounds came together. Seven children. Running up the stairs. Running into bedrooms. Cue the squeals. “I call this one!” ... “This one!” ... “I got the top one!” They were laying claim to something every child ought to have – a bed – but they were giddy because they had been sleeping three to a mattress in a dingy house infested with mold. Now this? “I got top bed!” ... “I got bottom bed!” Their mother, Kristy Wilson, followed in behind them. Her eyes were wider than a moving truck, and she kept turning left and right, putting her hand on her heart or her cheek. “Whose room is this?” she asked, entering a bedroom with a queen-size mattress on a new frame. “Yours and your husband’s,” she was told. She fell to her knees, laid her head on the bed and began to cry. A few weeks ago, in this space, we learned about Kristy and her husband, Amando, poor

COMMENTARY MITCH ALBOM working parents who simply couldn’t make ends meet – at least not enough to escape a bad-deal rented Detroit house where the landlord never bothered to fix the mold, sewage or other issues. At the time, there seemed no way out. But then something happened. A house was in need of repair. A family was in need of a home. One plus one equals ... “I have never had a washer or dryer before,” Kristy said. She was standing in the basement of this tidy home, looking at the laundry area, astonished that other people would do this for her. But they did and they do. Michigan is full of people like that. Dozens of them came down and volunteered their time, their hammers, their nail guns, their ladders, their painting, their carpeting skills, their electrical expertise. They donated furniture, windows, basic necessities. And because of that, through a new program I’m co-launching with the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries called Working Homes/Working Families, the Wilsons now have a place to live, not a place to survive. “Mama! Sit on the couch!” the

kids yelled. The idea is simple: There are too many empty or abandoned houses in Detroit. And there are too many families – working families – forced to live in shelters or inadequate housing with crazy rates. The mold pit that was the Wilsons’ previous address charged $650 a month. It’s astounding in a city where you can buy a house for $7,000 that landlords can regularly be exacting rents like that. But they do. And it keeps a cycle of poverty intact, while blocking Detroit neighborhoods from any kind of renaissance. It needn’t be that way. If you have or know of a house that is empty, or the owner is looking to donate for a loss or a deduction, Working Homes/Working Families could be an answer. One plus one equals ... “My husband and I were sleeping in the attic,” Kristy said. “We didn’t have luxuries. At the end of the month, it was a choice between feeding all the kids or paying the rent.” Under the Working Homes/ Working Families program, the family must pay only the utilities and the taxes. But they also must keep working – this is not a handout – and the house must be maintained at the same level it was given. If these requirements are met for a certain number of years, then the family might be given ownership. In the meantime, the pairing of families trying to make it with houses trying to stay up-

Marita, who was as hardnosed as any reporter for whom I’ve worked, showed a different side. She was warm, a great listener and empathetic. She helped to guide me through and to focus on how best to give meaning to Brian’s life. Eventually, we would help change the childwelfare laws in the state to better protect vulnerable children. After I left The Times Leader, we kept in periodic touch, especially during the turbulent times following her son’s death, and then when she was struck with the illness that eventually took her life. Through it all, Marita retained a positive outlook anchored in a faith that transcended any formal religion. She was both strong and humble to the end. I’ll miss her very much.

For the last few days, they have slept in a home. It is not fancy by suburban standards. But it is clean, it is moldfree, and it is full of children making the kind of noise they should make – squeals, foot thumps, bed bounces. “This is a miracle,” Kristy said. Not really.

Carey supports cancer drug fund

O

ur office wishes to acknowledge the incredible contribution of Ken Carey of the Tipsy Turtle to our Patient Prescription Assistance Fund at Medical Oncology Associates. The fund was started eight years ago so that financial assistance would be available to our cancer patients for the purchase of pain medication, nausea medication, antibiotics and occasionally even chemotherapy drugs. Support for our fund has come from many

patients, patients’ families, friends and our staff through gifts made to honor or memorialize loved ones. We believe that Ken Carey should be recognized for the extraordinary effort he has put forth to raise money for this fund. He has established an annual golf tournament, raffle and other events specifically to raise money to help cancer patients. Through Ken’s effort, the fund has been able, over the last several years, to assist needy patients with travel expenses for out-of-town consultations and with medical insurance premiums for many who have lost their medical insurance along with their employment. We even have been able to help several of our patients impacted by the recent flooding in the Wyoming Valley. Yes, Ken is a grateful patient who has survived cancer and has experienced firsthand what other cancer patients are going through. But he is much more than that.

He is truly a compassionate individual imbued with empathy and a sincere concern for the welfare of others. His generosity of caring and giving is an example of the best of the human spirit. The staff of Medical Oncology Associates thanks Ken Carey, his family, his helpers at the Tipsy Turtle and his friends for improving the lives of so many cancer patients in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Take the time to honor veterans

T

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2011

he 60th annual Veterans Day parade will be held Nov. 6 beginning at Kingston Corners on Wyoming Avenue, Kingston, and ending at Wilkes-Barre’s Public Square. An added incentive to celebrate and honor our veterans is the fact the war in Iraq is ending. After eight years, some 4,400 Americans were killed and tens of thousands were injured, including many who are amputees and many suffering from battle trauma. Thousands of American lives will never be the same. Families have been separated, couples have divorced and there have been suicides as well. The war’s financial costs have been estimated as high as a trillion dollars. Most, if not all, the troops will be home for the holidays. How can we show our appreciation for the veterans of the Middle East wars and all wars in our nation’s history? Become a part of the Veterans Day parade. If not a participant, be an observer, carry an American flag, wear your veteran’s cap or some other symbol indicating your service to your country. Salute the flag as it passes by and display our nation’s flag in front of your home, church, school or business. Take time off from the football games, etc., and show our veterans we appreciate their sacrifices in defending our freedoms. A good way to start the day would be by attending your place of worship and thanking God for the freedoms we enjoy. Another good idea would be for area mayors to issue proclamations for all residents and business establishments to display our nation’s flag throughout the Valley and to thank God for the end of the

Drilling heightens voting importance

T

he Back Mountain area of Luzerne County is changing rapidly and, sadly, these changes are not for the good. When we first learned of the Marcellus Shale natural gas explorations, I don’t believe that any of us imagined the impact that it would have on our serene rural communities. We are not yet peppered with gas wells like our neighboring counties, but battles rage over safely locating metering stations, and pipeline construction has inflicted terrible scars on our countryside. Opponents of this industry preach that this is only the beginning. In all likelihood, they are correct. This invasion is under way with little or no local regulation. In Dallas Township,

residents are confused by the attitude of their elected officials. They feel that their cries for more stringent regulation of the gas and pipeline companies are falling on deaf ears. The upcoming election should prove to be an accurate measurement of community discontent. Liz Martin is campaigning for a position as a Dallas Township supervisor. She is aligned with organizations that strongly favor regulating the gas industry and she is well-schooled in and savvy about other pressing township issues. Liz is articulate, honest and diligent. Her passion for the preservation of the Back Mountain is evident whenever she speaks. Your ballot is your sharpest tool. Choose wisely. Jim Skrypek Dallas

John Yudichak and state Rep. Jerry Mullery were on scene and pledged their support in the recovery effort. Unfortunately, three individuals who are aspiring for borough council failed to come to the borough to offer their

services. Conspicuous by their absences, nonetheless they seemingly used the misery of others to further their political agendas by condemning the actions of those people who tried to do their best during these emergencies. May I suggest that when you have three opportunities to help your community and you don’t step up to the plate, it’s three strikes and you’re out? Thank goodness the actions of these three are dwarfed by the good deeds of all who volunteered to help the Plymouth community. Joseph A. Mazur Borough administrator Plymouth

Council forum deemed success

T

he Downtown Residents Association in WilkesBarre thanks The Times Leader for agreeing to partner with us in presenting a forum on Oct. 17 of the candidates for Luzerne County Council. We feel that the event met our goal of providing an opportunity for the residents of Luzerne County to see and hear the candidates. Thank you for your support in providing publicity and the support given to our event by Kevin Blaum in two of his columns. We were pleased that 24 of the candidates accepted our invitation to the forum. Eileen Sorokas was present for the first part of the program but had to leave before the question-and-answer session, so her name was not included in The Times Leader’s article on Oct. 18. Eugene Kelleher called us late Monday afternoon with regrets that his previous engagement had run late and he would not be able to get back to Wilkes-Barre in time. Stephen J. Urban had accepted conditionally, stating that he has started a new job and would come if his work hours permitted it.

We felt the candidates presented good information and all seemed willing to work together to improve Luzerne County. We hope that Luzerne County’s residents will take the time to vote for the best candidates for the council. Pat Parks Coordinator, Downtown Residents Association Wilkes-Barre

Leighton should retain position

I

observed the skill and leadership of Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton before, during and after the flood of 2011. I never thought that I would see the “downtown mayor” take such a personal interest in protecting the neighborhoods. But the mayor and his staff frequently visited the area during the crisis to make sure that the flood-protection systems were holding and to direct the cleanup efforts when it became unavoidable. There was no one more suited to the job. The people of Wilkes-Barre were wellserved by the mayor and his team. Over the last seven years, Mayor Leighton has consistently proven beyond a doubt that he is the right person to continue to revolutionize Wilkes-Barre into the pioneering 21st-century city that it has become. No longer are people ashamed to admit that they live in Wilkes-Barre, but instead, they are proud to call Wilkes-Barre home. The state of the city is a testament to his character, experience and leadership, and I am proud to support Tom Leighton to continue to be the mayor. I often am jokingly called “the mayor of Miners Mills,” but there is only one person who has truly earned that title – and he deserves to be elected. Gerald Norakus Wilkes-Barre

MAIL BAG

T

o the residents of WilkesBarre City Council District D: Since the primary election, Linda J. Urban has been actively involved in a negative election campaign for city council. Mrs. Urban recently has resorted to distributing misleading postings and mailings. She claims to have resided in the district “most of my life,” when in fact, after losing the election for mayor and city council in 2007, she put her house up for sale and went to Florida. Mrs. Urban repeatedly criticizes council benefits, including health care, gas reimbursements, etc. What Mrs. Urban fails to mention is that I have never accepted councilrelated health care benefits, or any buyout incentives. In addition, she fails to mention that I do not contribute and never have participated in the council pension plan. This was a promise that I made to residents of Wilkes-Barre when first elected, and I will continue to honor that promise. She continues by saying that “this is not a full-time job.” I couldn’t disagree more. This is much more than a job; it is a commitment to serve the residents of the city, no matter what it takes or how long it takes to accomplish our goals. As far as qualifications, I also am a veteran (U.S. Army, Vietnam era), attended King’s College, the Pennsylvania State Police MPO Academy and the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va. I have more than 28 years of progressive law enforcement experience with the Wilkes-Barre Police, retiring as chief of police. I am currently employed by an area college as a safety and security director. Please be assured that in all my years of public service, my honesty and integrity have never been challenged. Mrs. Urban’s references to “ingrained corruption, nepotism, graft and threats to our Bill of Rights…” in her very

negative mailings are blatant attacks and an insult to other veterans, government officials and public servants who are proud of what they do every day and hold their personal integrity in high esteem. I am humbly requesting your vote for re-election to Wilkes-Barre City Council District D on Nov. 8, which will allow me to continue to represent and serve all the residents of our great city. Bill Barrett Councilman Wilkes-Barre

Williams will do the county proud

T

he second most important governing election in Luzerne County history will occur on Nov. 8. The first was last year’s election when county voters adopted a home rule charter that replaces our current, three-commissioner structure with an 11-member council with an appointed county manager. The home rule charter takes full effect on Jan. 2, 2012. With a new framework in hand for restoring integrity to county governance, it’s the responsibility of voters to populate the council with members who will validate the goals of home rule. I strongly urge voters to review the profiles and credentials of all the council candidates and ask: “Will this candidate be the best choice for implementing the positive changes needed to restore voter confidence in county government?” The importance of selecting the best candidates cannot be overstated. Home rule will not achieve the level of government reform that residents deserve if candidates are elected for the wrong reasons or if they intend to corrupt the home-rule process by bringing backwardthinking politics to the table. Our county deserves forwardthinking, independent voices such as Rick Williams, who have no other agenda beyond maximizing the potential of the home rule charter to bring honesty, integrity and fairness

Consider Mullen on Election Day

L

ibertarian refers to “liberty.” And it is Libertarian candidate Tim Mullen’s mission to liberate taxpayers from the yoke of higher taxes. Tim Mullen, a candidate for Luzerne County Council, is a decorated combat veteran, but now he wages a different kind of campaign. He aims to show the same valor he showed on the battlefield in combating corruption in the Luzerne County Courthouse. I know that he is fiercely independent, but also very thoughtful and honest. He’s also quite street smart and sees through baloney. He will be neither deceived nor intimidated if elected. One of his primary goals is to address the county’s enormous debt before interest rates rise. Libertarian Party members such as Mullen have a firm resolution to support a small, efficient government that allows for maximum liberty. It is this principle that allows them to see through schemes. This means that Mullen will be able to advise the county manager as to which endeavors should be avoided. But Tim’s defining attribute is his heart; and this is why he can be seen each week at the Farmers Market or at bazaars, handing out his campaign cards and meeting people. I believe that his heart is also what led him to run as a thirdparty candidate. Tim isn’t perfect, and he readily admits the he is not the best candidate in every category. But Mullen has all the intangible traits: firm principles, bravery, wits and the dedication necessary to carry out his duties well. I am grateful that I have a

Board candidates vow to cut costs

W

e, as candidates for Wyoming Area School Board, are sensitive to the ongoing economic conditions. We all are experiencing higher grocery bills, increased home heating costs, escalating gas prices, along with the pain, suffering and devastation that the recent flooding has caused. We are aware that these challenging times have put an extra strain on family budgets. Unfortunately, this situation is compounded by the recent mailings of school taxes, which are due at the end of the year. We know of the challenges you face and, as your elected officials, we too are faced with the daunting challenge of balancing the district budget while being fair to you, the taxpayers. We see the major issue facing the district as surging health care costs. Family coverage for a district employee (husband, wife and child) costs the district more than $21,000 per year. The district’s yearly cost for employee health care is $2.8 million, with zero contributions from union-represented employees. In addition, state reimbursement under Gov. Tom Corbett’s administration has declined more than $1 million for the fiscal year 2011-12. We propose to cut expenditures by asking that teachers take part in contributing to their own health care, as we do, and as all other professionals and members of the private sector do. We think that’s fair. That is why we both voted “no” to increased taxes at the June budget meeting. We believe the answer for our school district is in cutting

expenditures, not increasing your taxes. We recognize that the greatest source of our success as a district lies with its people, our outstanding teachers and dedicated employees. Our pledge to you is that during these difficult economic times, all of our decisions will be made in the best interest of students, always keeping in mind our already overburdened taxpayer, without compromising the quality education that Wyoming Area students and our community expect. Nick DeAngelo and Toni Valenti Candidates Wyoming Area School Board

Writer: Duo fails for Wyoming Area

T

he cliché ‘ignorance is bliss’ must have been coined by people who desired to maintain control without interference from those who were being controlled. This philosophy seemingly has been the motto of the Wyoming Area School Board majority for a good many years and has led to the financial crisis facing the sdistrict today. Now more than ever, transparency in governance is essential. Over the past few years, too little has been done by the Wyoming Area board majority to manage expenditures, despite concerns voiced by myself and the business manager. And here is where the problem lies. We have heard about the $20 million loan that was taken out in 2005 for high school construction and how the new school board majority saved the day by scaling back the construction to save money. Well, since that time, about $1.5 million of that money has been used each year to help balance the budget by paying the interest on loans. As I predicted in a letter to the Sunday Dispatch in 2009, this

money will be depleted by the end of 2011. Well, guess what? Yep, it’s 2011. Because of this practice, over the past few years, the fund balance has dropped from about $4 million in 20032004 to less than $1 million in 2011-2012. Unfortunately, the current fund balance could easily be used up to pay for the flood-damage repairs to Montgomery Avenue Elementary if payments are not made available from insurance and/or the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The recent flooding of towns in the Wyoming Area district will result in less local revenue generated from property taxes because some businesses will not be returning and some homes have been condemned. This represents yet another unanticipated blow to the budget. Not only is revenue going down, but expenditures are going up. Health care costs are projected to increase by 15 percent, the state has indicated that retirement contributions provided by the district will increase, and then there is the usual inflation rate that increase the costs of running a district. Please be aware that the financial crisis facing Wyoming Area did not happen without the warnings. Much more could have been done over the past few years to soften the blow. But the board majority refused to be proactive! Wyoming Area taxpayers, ignorance is not bliss. The fiscal crisis at Wyoming Area is a reality, and while it is due in part to the nature of our nation’s economy, it is due in large part to a school board majority that put its interests ahead of yours. Now it is up to you to do your part and vote for candidates who value transparency, accountability, honesty, and intelligence – not the politics as usual for which Toni Valenti and Nick DeAngelo stand.

Off-the-cuff remarks doing Romney no good

DRILLING Continued from Page 1E

Texas, where rig workers are used to raising hell and getting a pass from law enforcement. “You can do that (stuff) and get away with it,” Bourque said. In Pennsylvania, “they look at it totally different.” Leaving a diner in Towanda in northern Pennsylvania, Jason Phillips, a 30-year-old drillingequipment supervisor from Coldspring, Texas, said the problem is not really the drilling industry — “it’s young people making a lot of money.” As for himself, he said, “I’m not too much of a wild person.” The boom in drilling has been made possible by horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a technique that cracks open rock layers to free natural gas. Large numbers of workers are needed to operate drilling equipment, drive trucks, handle chemicals, lay pipeline and perform other tasks. The hours are long. Some employees put in two weeks on, two weeks off. But entry-level laborers or truck drivers can make $40,000 or more, while workers on the drilling rigs can easily pull down twice that. Their employers often pick up the tab for hotels, meals and practically everything else. In Sweetwater County, Wyo., where natural gas exploration boomed about a decade ago, the population increased from 37,600 in 2000 to 43,800 in 2010, and arrests for drunkenness, drugs and DUI more than doubled from 603 in 2000 to a peak of 1,535 in 2008, according to state figures. Since then, the numbers have eased to 1,128 in 2010, a decline that sheriff’s spokesman Detective Dick Blust Jr. credited to the sluggish national economy. In Pennsylvania’s Bradford County, DUI arrests by state troopers are on track to rise 40 percent this year after climbing 60 percent last year, District Attorney Dan Barrett said. The number of sentences handed out for criminal offenses was up 35 percent in 2010, he said. Sheriff Clinton Walters said his

Jordon Bourque, a 23-year-old pipe inspector from Lafayette, La., talks to a reporter at a bar in the Williamsport, Pa.

In Pennsylvania’s Bradford County, DUI arrests by state troopers are on track to rise 40 percent this year after climbing 60 percent last year, District Attorney Dan Barrett said. The number of sentences handed out for criminal offenses was up 35 percent in 2010. officers are handling about a 25 percent increase from last year in everything from warrants for people who fail to appear in court to protection-from-abuse orders. The flood of arrests is such that his office’s van is no longer big enough to transport all the inmates at once from jail to court, Walters said. Stories abound about friction between locals and out-of-towners, whether road rage incidents or fights over women. Renee Daly, 27, of Montrose, Pa., said she knows of at least three marriages that ended when local women abandoned their husbands for gas-field workers. It’s “because of these Southern gentlemen, with their Southern accents, and the girls move in with these guys to take care of them,” she said. “You get to spend their money, and they’re gone two weeks at a time.” Wearing a T-shirt emblazoned “My Indian name is crawling drunk,” Jeanette Pratt, a title searcher from Monroe, La., who

travels the country for the gas industry and was on assignment recently in Montrose, said the difference is that the out-of-town rig workers “have a lot more money to party with” than the locals. In the North Dakota boomtown of Williston, some bars have become rough, and the number of domestic-disturbance calls and arrests for such crimes as DUI, assault and theft in just the first half of 2011 was twice the total for all of 2010, said Busching, the sheriff. Busching and Williston police are scrambling to hire but say they can’t pay enough for their new officers to afford the high rents, and many would-be local applicants have opted for a higher paycheck in the drilling industry. “I have increased staff, and I’m going to increase again, but I can’t until I find a place for them to live,” Busching said. Williston Police Capt. Tom Ladwig said he has been hiring from police academies in Minnesota and has offi-

cers staying on couches in colleagues’ apartments until they can find their own places. Doctors are treating more patients for chlamydia, a sexually transmitted disease, in some of the biggest oil-producing counties in western North Dakota — 237 cases in 2010 compared with 145 in 2008 — although the state’s disease-control chief, Kirby Kruger, said that it is difficult to call three years of data a real trend. There are also rumors of prostitution. In rural southern Texas, where exploration for oil and gas in the Eagle Ford Shale is just getting under way, Robert Garza, police chief in the town of Dilley, said he has heard talk about plans to build a club “down in the boonies” that would supply prostitutes to drilling industry workers. Police departments in the area have reported unusual activity in recent months: early morning traffic stops with “very young, attractive girls in BMWs” from the Houston area, at least a five-hour drive from Dilley, Garza said. Back in Pennsylvania, a Bradford County commissioner, Doug McLinko, said the crime spike doesn’t change his mind about the importance of the drilling boom to the local economy. Other states, he said, would “cut an arm off” to have such a surge. “I’m always a little apprehensive about painting this as a big problem around the county, because it just isn’t,” McLinko said. “A lot of these people are really well-behaved. ... To a large degree, is it out of control or a major issue? Absolutely not.”

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney may need a censor. For himself. In the last few weeks in Nevada, the man who owns several homes told the state hit tough by the housing crisis: “Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom.” At one point in Iowa, earlier this year, the former venture capitalist uttered, “Corporations are people,” with the country in the midst of a debate over Wall Street vs. Main Street. At an event in economically suffering Florida, the retiree — who is a multimillionaire many times over — told out-of-work voters, “I’m also unemployed.” Over the past year, the Republican presidential candidate has amassed a collection of off-the-cuff comments that expose his vulnerabilities and, taken together, cast him as outof-touch with Americans who face staggering unemployment, widespread foreclosures and a dire outlook on the economy. So far, the foot-in-mouth remarks haven’t seemed to affect his standing in the nomination race. Romney has run a far more cautious and disciplined campaign than his losing bid of four years ago. He’s kept the focus on his core message: He’s the strongest candidate able to beat President Barack Obama on the biggest issue of the campaign, the economy. He still enjoys leading positions in public opinion polls in early primary states and across the nation. Few, if any, of the other Republicans in the race have turned his remarks against him. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Romney’s chief rival with the money to prove it, is all but certain to try. Perry has already start-

ed suggesting that Romney lives a life of privilege while he comes from humble roots. In an interview Friday with CNN, another GOP candidate, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, painted Romney as “a perfectly lubricated weather vane on the important issues of the day.” And Romney’s eyebrow-raising comments are tailor-made for critical TV ads. Look no further than the Democratic Party and Obama’s advisers for proof of that. Each time Romney says something that makes even his closest aides grimace, Democrats quickly put together a Web video highlighting the remark — a preview of certain lines of attack come the general election should the former Massachusetts governor win the nomination. “Mitt Romney’s message to Arizona? You’re on your own,” says a new ad by the Democratic National Committee that jumps on Romney’s foreclosure remarks. Romney’s team publicly dismisses their boss’s occasional loose lips, dismissing them as inconsequential to voters focused on an unemployment rate hovering around 9 percent. “It’s a long campaign and at the end of the day people are going to judge Gov. Romney and his ability to take on President Obama over jobs and the economy. And certainly there will be a lot of back and forth as the campaign progresses,” said Russ Schriefer, a Romney strategist. “This election will be decided on big issues because the issues are so big and so important,” Schriefer said. “And not on a gaffe or a mistake or a moment, any particularly moment.” Expect to hear Romney’s impolitic comments frequently as Republicans and Democrats alike try to derail Romney.

Orchestra

has

been bringing its dazzling holiday show to Northeastern Penn-

sylvania for more than10 years, but it has never kicked off one of its highly successful tours in Wilkes-Barre. Until now. The popular combination heavy-metal band and symphony orchestra will take over the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza for two shows Friday. The matinee begins at 4 p.m., while the nightcap gets under way at 8 p.m.

“For some reason, I love WilkesBarre in particular,” TSO founding member and composer/arranger/ producer/guitarist Paul O’Neill told The Times Leader a few days before beginning rehearsals. “Years ago, the water was out in the entire building, and we thought no one would show up; the place was packed. “Wilkes-Barre has always been a special place for the band,” O’Neill continued. “That whole area has just embraced the band from the beginning. We usually start our tours in Ohio, but this year we decided we would kick it off in Wilkes-Barre.” This year’s show will highlight TSO’s triple-platinum debut album “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” in its entirety in the first half and songs from new project “Gutter Bal-

let and The New York Blues Express” in the second. The latter is an example of what O’Neill calls “Rock Theater.” “It takes the best of what Broadway has to offer, the easy-to-follow, great storytelling, and marries it with rock-’n’-roll standards of great singing and great musicianship,” he said. Fans can get a front-row seat at the creation of the genre in TSO’s latest PBS special, “The Birth of Rock Theater,” which offers live performances from “Beethoven’s Last Night” (the group’s first foray outside of its Christmas trilogy) and “Night Castle” (its latest, Top 5 album).

It wasn’t love at first sight. “When I was a little girl, my father bribed me to practice with candy, ice cream, toys, whatever a kid wants. If I practiced well, I would get a Snickers Bar,” said Gohar Vardanyan, 26, who began to appreciate the classical guitar about eight years later, as a 13year-old student in the pre-college division of the Juilliard School. “Other kids my age were taking it seriously.

The two artists will perform separately as well as together, with Vardanyan accompanying Davis as she sings. Afterward, a reception will honor the duo, who were roommates at the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and remain friends. “She’s in Philadelphia now, and I’m in New York.

Furthur honoring the Grateful Dead classics

By JOSEPH HUDAK For The Times Leader

Not many Grateful Dead fans are afforded the chance to play with their heroes. Then again, not many have the talents of John Kadlecik. A self-taught guitar whiz – it’s one of multiple instruments he’s mastered – the Iowa-born free spirit took his love and respect for the songs of the seminal rock-folk-bluegrass band and decided to re-create them on stage with a group of fellow Deadadoring musicians. The result was Dark Star Orchestra, one of the pre-eminent Grateful Dead tribute acts, which Kadlecik co-founded in 1997. Fast forward to 2009, and Kadlecik was tendered an offer that would allow him to dig even deeper into the catalogue he so admires: the opportunity to join former Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh in Furthur, the pair’s eclectic jam band.

died of a heart attack in 1995. It’s Garcia’s guitar and vocal parts that Kadlecik primarily handles on stage, but he bristles at the notion he’s replacing anyone and waves off any comparison to the plot of the 2001 film “Rock Star,” in which a tribute artist is asked to join the band he idolizes. “There are some big distinctions, and I’m not replacing a guy who got fired,” Kadlecik says of the differences in his story. “I’d like to think that it was my familiarity with the repertoire that got me the gig more than being a sound-alike.” Kadlecik attended his first of more than 60 Dead concerts in 1989 at the Rosemont Horizon outside Chicago, where he lived for 15 years. At the time, he was already a devoted student of music and music theory but found it difficult not to be inspired by

Edited by Rich Norris and Joyce Nichols Lewis

CRYPTOGRAMS

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be in tune with what your body needs — and doesn’t need, for that matter. You may crave an unusual food, decide to try a new kind of movement or give up a habit that’s producing less than optimum results. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What’s right for you isn’t the same thing that’s recommended by the teachers, leaders and experts around you. It takes courage to go forward without evidence that your way will work. Your gut instinct won’t lie, though. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know you’re supported, even though that support may be rather intangible right now. Friends are wishing you well, and you can feel their encouragement on the breeze. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your heroes started out with a lot less material wealth and knowledge and fewer resources than you have available to you right now. Ask them for help, if only in your head. Call on them to open your eyes to opportunity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone recognizes your deep, soulful desire even though you never said out loud what it is. This is no small coincidence; it’s a sign of an unfolding miracle. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Negative thoughts become reality just like positive thoughts do. Stay positive. Your connection with a fellow earth sign will help matters — and that’s Capricorn or Taurus. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have dreams that have never seen the light of day. Maybe you haven’t even uttered them to your nearest and dearest. They need air to grow. Bring them into the open. Write them in a notebook. It’s an excellent start! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll make phone calls, line up appointments and generally get busy preparing for a certain reality. Make sure it’s the reality you want instead of the one you fear. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re not alone. You have lots of friends, many of whom are invisible. That’s why, even when you’re by yourself, you feel a wonderful sense of belonging. A silent community showers you with love. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mood may go up and down if you allow yourself to be a victim of circumstances. So don’t allow it. Remind yourself that you’re the creator here, and you can create happiness from wherever you are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Every time you read, you learn something. But it’s action that will really drive the lesson home. You’ll get your hands dirty with the nuts and bolts of making a project work, and you’ll love every minute. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won’t waste time trying to make things fit that just don’t. Your life is like a puzzle. The pieces that don’t belong in your picture will be gently cast to the side. They are part of another puzzle. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 30). Your productivity will be astounding through the end of the year. Whoever resisted you or stood in your way will retreat and allow you to do your thing for the next 10 weeks. You’ll flesh out a romantic notion in November. January brings an important sale. In April, your bold action will win over a VIP. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 10, 34, 40 and 15.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE

Woman is mad that her boyfriend’s dad cheats Dear Abby: I have been dating “Cameron” for five years. We’re in graduate school, have a wonderful relationship and are discussing marriage. I get along well with his parents, but some things have just come out about his father and I don’t know how to deal with it. Two years ago we discovered that Cameron’s father had been having an affair. He promised to stop seeing the woman, get a restraining order so she’d leave him alone and work on his marriage. It seems he lied. We have found out (again) that he has continued to see her. Cameron was mortified both times and sad his father would treat his mother this way. His mother said she’d try counseling with him, and if he didn’t live up to his promise, she’d divorce him. It has been months and they’re still in counseling. His dad isn’t allowed to live at home with her. I’m furious with Cameron’s father for being such an idiot. I don’t want to see him (one of Cameron’s sisters has cut him out of her life completely), but Cameron thinks his father will hurt himself if we all leave him. Please tell me how to handle this because

although I never want to see the man again, I may have to. — Walking On Eggshells in Delaware Dear Walking On Eggshells: Cameron’s parents’ marriage has hit a “rough patch.” However, they’re both trying to repair it. While you may be disgusted with Cameron’s father, you have no reason to be “furious” with him — his wife does. So for everyone’s sake, cool off and think rationally. If your boyfriend’s parents manage to reconcile, you’ll be seeing them with some regularity — and they will need all of the emotional support they can get. If they decide to divorce, it will be up to Cameron to decide how close he wishes to remain with his father. Please do not add fuel to an already explosive situation.

A woman’s life is turned upside down by an affair By JOY PRESS

Los Angeles Times

‘The Forgotten Waltz’ by Anne Enright; W. W. Norton & Company (263 pages, $25.95)

A

nne Enright doesn’t believe in leading readers gently into anything — certainly not an affair. In “The Forgotten Waltz,” the

Irish writer plunges us headlong into the world of Gina Moynihan,

young IT consultant and adulteress at large. Gina is not so much an unreliable narrator as someone obsessed with her own unreliability. Dissecting her love affair with married man Sean Vallely, she constantly doubles back on her own thoughts and memories, gamely trying to pinpoint the moment when her conventional middle-class life — complete with husband and mortgage — dissolved into something darker and more complicated. Her tone is often wry. : “That all you have to do is sleep with somebody and get caught and you never have to see your in-laws again. Ever. Pffft! Gone. It’s the nearest thing to magic I have yet found,” Gina brags. The real magic is in Enright’s prose, which burrows into characters like fin-

gernails into skin, peeling back the hidden layers of ordinary interactions and momentary thoughts. Material that another writer might string across a whole book, Enright burns up in a page, like it’s nothing, using it to create a jagged portrait of Dublin during the recent boom. When the novel opens, the air is crackling with real estate lust and Internet startups. Gina collides with Sean at a European conference: She’s there for a panel on “International Internet Strategy,” while he’s presenting “The Culture of Money.” They find themselves sleeping together, with very little ceremony: “It seemed that choice had nothing to do with it, or that I had chosen a long time ago. Not

him, necessarily, but this; waiting for the lift in sudden silence with a man who did not even bother to court me. ... Maybe it was the drink, but my sense of time was undone, as idly as a set of shoelaces, that you do not notice until you look down.” Although she is already married to a sweet tech guy who is working all hours to keep up with the mortgage on their apartment, Gina throws herself into a sexual dalliance with Sean as if it’s a grand adventure. But even as she is remembering the gorgeous highs of flirting and secrecy, Gina recounts her ambivalence. “After we made love — which we always did first, for fear, almost, of becoming friends — afterwards, when it was safe, Sean would talk to me about his life and I would be interested.” Other details temper Gina’s lover’s tale — the fact that she is so busy with Sean that she doesn’t notice her mothSee AFFAIR, Page 6F

Charles Dickens published his first story in a London monthly at age 22. Although he wasn’t paid and it appeared without his name, he was so overcome with joy and pride it took him half an hour to recover. When he died of a stroke 36 years later, he had earned a fortune many times over and had been hailed as the greatest novelist of the 19th century. The story of how Dickens rose to such heights from a modest background, forced to leave school at 15 by his parents, who could no longer afford the fees, is no less epic than his sprawling novels. Now, a splendid history by the noted English biographer and journalist Claire Tomalin has been published, just months before the bicentennial of Dickens’ Feb. 7, 1812, birth. It is a tale of two Dickens: the tenderhearted social critic with a soft spot for prostitutes, orphans and the disabled, and the raging egomaniac, who dumped the wife who bore him 10 children because she was fat and dull and he had fallen hard for an actress, Nelly Ternan, 27 years his junior. Scholarly but accessible, the book vividly conjures the idyllic countryside outside London, where Dickens spent his boyhood, and then the sooty districts of the rapidly industrializing city, where he set himself on the path to becoming a writer. Tomalin skillfully presents the chief trauma of Dickens’ young life — being sent to work in a factory at age 12, after his father was imprisoned for debt — and suggests the ways it left a lasting mark, from his sympathy for the working class to his towering ambition and Herculean work ethic. Though Tomalin rightly celebrates Dickens’ genius, she is cleareyed about his faults, as a writer and a human being. She quotes his daughter Katey: “He was not a good man ... but he was wonderful!” Among his sins, the creator of Tiny Tim and Little Nell neglected his own children. Of the 10, only two forged anything like an independent path to success. It didn’t much matter; Dickens knew what his legacy would be. His will stipulates no memorial. “I rest my claims to the remembrance of my country upon my published works,” he wrote. And he was right to do so. Ebenezer Scrooge, Oliver Twist, the Artful Dodger, Fagin — these and so many other unforgettable characters he created will live forever in our imagination.

MILITARY MUSEUMS

offer thrills, noted collections

By SUSANNE M. SCHAFER Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Military museums allow visitors to experience the rough and tumble jerk of a parachute jump, the barked orders of an Army drill sergeant or the segregated training endured by the first AfricanAmericans to enter the Marine Corps. Whether you are a hardened military veteran or one who’s never worn a uniform, several military museums in the Carolinas offer extensive lessons in military service as the Nov. 11 Veterans Day draws near. In Fayetteville, N.C., the soaring Airborne and Special Operations Museum attracts between 120,000 to 175,000 visitors every year and tells the story of how America’s military developed the strategy of dropping fully-armed soldiers into battle from the skies. A 15-foot sculpture of the paratrooper dubbed “Iron Mike” stands guard at its glass-and-girder front entry, which evokes both the 250-foot “jump towers” that paratroopers use to train and the wingspan of the C-47 aircraft that dropped soldiers onto battlefields in World War II. Located just minutes off Interstate 95 in downtown Fayetteville, N.C., the museum is holding a weeklong celebration in advance of Veterans Day, says Paul Galloway, executive director of the foundation that supported construction of the $25 million building. “We’ll be hopping and popping. We do a salute to veterans every year,” Galloway said. A week of films about the Army and paratroopers will be held the week prior to the holiday, as well as other events to honor military men and women, Galloway said. As soon as you enter the museum, you spot a World War II-era paratrooper in combat gear floating out of the sky under a yellow 28-foot-wide parachute. Behind him, another model drops from the heavens, a modern Army Ranger buoyed by a light green, honeycombed parachute used by U.S. Special Forces.

ORCHESTRA Continued from Page 1F

gan in the 1970s as a guitarist with touring productions of “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Hair,” O’Neill became a producer with Aerosmith, working on the group’s albums “Classics Live I” and “Classics Live II.” He then worked extensively with the band Savatage, which introduced him to such people as Jon Olivia, Bob Kinkel, Al Pitrelli and renowned studio engineer Dave Wittman, all of whom became integral collaborators in O’Neill’s next grand project, Trans Siberian-Orchestra, in 1994. TSO’s Christmas trilogy – 1996’s “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” with smash hit “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,”

A wild ride can be had in the museum’s 24-seat platform motion simulator, recreating the bumps and jumps of parachute drops and rides in military vehicles. To highlight some of the major events of wartime paratroopers, visitors first stroll through a recreated village in Normandy. Recordings from the June 1944 Allied invasion to liberate France from Nazi Germany put visitors in the heat of the battle, with rockets and bullets screeching by. Overhead, a C-47 “Skytrain” aircraft hovers with a U.S. Army paratrooper poised to jump out an open door. Walkways are papered with still photos, videos and murals that show the history behind U.S. forces that evolved into the famed Special Operations units, designated to take on unconventional warfare and special missions in foreign lands. Displays from the war in the Pacific, the Korean War and Cold War are shown. In one display, soldiers jump from a UH-1 “Huey” helicopter into a jungle battle raging in Vietnam. Other displays detail the history of U.S. involvement in the Dominican Republic, Panama and Grenada. America’s conflicts in the Middle East are recalled with models of camouflaged soldiers crouching in desert hideouts in Iraq. Others depict U.S. Special Operations forces meeting for tea with Afghan villagers or medical centers where military medics tend to local children. The latest addition to the Army’s military museums is the Army’s Basic Training Combat Museum located on Fort Jackson, in Columbia, S.C., which reopened in July after a two-year renovation. More than 60,000 male and female soldiers graduate every year from basic training at Fort Jackson, which is the Army’s largest training site. The museum offers guests and family members a taste of their grueling 10 weeks of indoctrination and combat training. “The museum boasts a num1998’s “The Christmas Attic” with “Christmas Canon,” and 2004’s “The Lost Christmas Eve” with “Wizards in Winter” – has sold nearly 7 million copies total and is reintroduced each holiday season to radio listeners. The group’s non-holiday projects, 2000’s “Beethoven’s Last Night” and 2009’s “Night Castle,” also have been big sellers. O’Neill and his cohorts are now at work on two more albums, one the long-fabled “Romanov” project that was originally to be the band’s first release. They also are working on the group’s first Broadway show, a pair of graphic novels, and planning a spring tour reprising “Beethoven’s Last Night.” But first comes the annual winter tour, complete with its truckloads of lights, pyrotech-

ber of high-speed exhibits that zoom in directly on how civilians are turned into soldiers, interwoven with Fort Jackson’s past,” said the two-star general in charge of the post, Maj. Gen. James Milano. Visitors may be startled by drill sergeants who appear in holographic images bellowing commands, allowing them to “feel as if he or she has enlisted in the Army and is standing there in their Army Combat Uniform,” Milano says. Check out a fully loaded duffel bag, or try to lift and shoot an Army rifle. Listen as soldiers march by and learn some of the drill sergeants’ cadence calls that keep soldiers sharp and in step. The museum gives visitors a sense of how rough training once was with displays of World War Iera barracks, complete with wood-burning, pot-bellied stoves, metal beds and modest rations. While most Marines recall their basic training taking place either at Parris Island, S.C., or Camp Pendleton, Calif., there is a third site few know about: the Montford Point Marine Museum, located near Camp Lejeune, N.C., at Camp Gilbert H. Johnson. “We are the Marine Corps banics and spectacle. This year’s show will also include an emphasis on dancing for the first time. TSO shows have always given a lot of entertainment for the concert-goer’s dollar, but that’s even more important to O’Neill this year. “Every time I think the economy can’t get any worse, it does,” O’Neill said. “Our show is three hours of positive feelings where you can forget about your problems outside of the building. “Our mission is to keep trying to do it better, keep pushing the envelope, and keep it affordable for everyone.”

sic training site you’ve never heard of,” jokes Finney Greggs, a retired Marine and director of the small museum located in one of the original white wooden, single story barracks buildings where African-Americans were segregated from white Marines as they trained from 1942 to 1949. The museum holds photos, letters, uniforms and other mementos from blacks who endured tough training to earn the eagle, globe and anchor Corps’ insignia and disprove the notion they weren’t worthy because of the color of their skin. African-Americans gained entry to the Marines after President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order forcing the commandant to allow them to train. In 1948, President Harry S Truman signed an executive order that desegregated the military services, and all Marines went to boot camp at either Parris Island or Camp Pendleton. Greggs says the museum is seeking material for displays and is looking for information about any veterans who may have trained at Montford Point and saw duty in World War II. Organizers are also looking ahead to building a second phase dealing with the history of these Marines in the Korean War and Vietnam.

er slipping from flakiness into illness, for instance. Or that the economy is collapsing around them, pulling mortgages under water and forcing Gina to lay off her colleagues. There’s also the nagging problem of Sean’s young daughter, Evie. Hovering over the novel like a chubby, unpredictable ghost, Evie has some kind of mysterious issue — a neurological condition, maybe — that causes her parents endless

anxiety. And though Gina revels in her own freedom, the little girl is a reminder that the affair has the power to derail several lives. “(T)hat is the thing about stolen love, it is important to know who it is you are stealing from,” Gina notes archly. Enright’s early fiction was filled with wisps of fantasy (in “The Wig My Father Wore,” an angel moves in with a TV game show producer), while her 2007 novel, “The Gathering,” which won the Man Booker Prize, offered something more dense and mournful in its story of a woman trying to understand her brother’s suicide.

In “The Forgotten Waltz,” Enright balances rapture and grief — as Gina discovers while trying to explain events in an orderly way, these things tend to bleed together. The novel does lose some of its buoyancy as the love and money bubbles start to waver, though. Things that once looked so tempting now feel threadbare and routine. But there are no simple judgments in this darkly funny book about adultery: just a clear-eyed accounting of what was spent and what was lost. As Gina quips, “Who would have thought love could be so expensive?”
