D.A rules Otha D. Green’s killing was justifiable homicide by police

WILKES-BARRE – An autopsy performed on the body of Otha Derrick Green Jr., who died seven days after being shot several times by police, showed he died from a blood clot in the lung, Luzerne County Chief Deputy Coroner William Lisman said Thursday. Lisman said the official cause

of death was a pulmonary embolism, which he explained is a common complication after a surgical procedure. Green Forensic pathologist Dr. Mary Pascucci, who performed the autopsy at WilkesBarre General Hospital, ruled the


manner of death a homicide. Lisman said the death was ruled a homicide because Green would not have suffered the embolism had he not undergone surgery for the gunshot wounds inflicted by police. While undergoing treatment for the gunshot wounds at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, he “was refusing to take his medication,”

said Luzerne County District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll. She ruled the death a justifiable homicide, based on her review of the circumstances surrounding the initial shooting. “The facts of the shooting itself did not change. What occurred at the scene was justified. The homicide is now justified,” she said. Green, 29, underwent surgery at Geisinger Wyoming Valley on

Oct. 26, a day after he was shot seven times by two city police officers and a deputy sheriff at George Avenue and North Washington Street. The shooting took place near a child care facility, a Turkey Hill, InterMetro Industries and the Hollenback City Golf Course. He was discharged Tuesday See CLOT, Page 12A

Flood insurance claim deadline moves to Jan. 7

Dems fuming over redistricting By BILL O’BOYLE

The deadline for filing claims for damage by Hurricane Irene also is extended, to Nov. 24. Blake By STEVE MOCARSKY

Less than two weeks remain for area flood victims to apply for federal disaster aid, but those with flood insurance have been given an extension for filing claims with insurance companies. Dolores D. Glass, communications manager for Fidelity National Indemnity Co., the nation’s largest provider of flood insurance policies, said policyholders who have losses from Tropical Storm Lee flooding have a 60-day extension to file a proof of loss. A proof of loss is the policy holder’s valuation of the damages and is a sworn statement made by the policyholder substantiating the claim. The insurance company usually proSee DEADLINE, Page 7A

HARRISBURG – State Sen. John Blake said the redistricting plan proposed by the Legislative Reapportionment Commission Monday “is a statewide power grab that offends the sensibilities of a significant portion of the Pennsylvania

electorate.” Blake, D-Archbald, Lackawanna County, represents the 22nd Senatorial District. He said Wednesday that he didn’t expect a dramatic change in his district, but he no longer represents parts of Monroe County and he has picked up most municipalities in the Wyoming Area School District –

towns that had been represented by Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township. “I’m somewhat surprised by the reapportionment plan due to the See DISTRICTS, Page 2A INSIDE: Public will get say, Page 2A

This bear was spotted in Edwardsville Tuesday morning, bringing out police, fire and state game commission officers.

Kapral has trapped and relocated the bear, which is tagged, three times since 2004. Back then the male bruin weighed 300 pounds. When Kapral last trapped it in October by the K.M. Smith Elementary School in Sheatown, it weighed more than 600 pounds, he said. In October Kapral relocated

Public may comment on redistricting plan A proposal for realigning legislative boundaries will be the subject of a hearing.


Residents who disagree with the preliminary plans to change legislative district boundaries will have a chance to be heard. On Nov. 18, at noon, the Legislative Reapportionment Commission will meet in Hearing Room 1 of the North Office Building in Harrisburg to hear public comment on the proposed state

Senate and House district maps the commission approved on Monday by a 3-2 vote. Spurred by new census data, the state must carry out the constitutional mandate of one person, one vote by ensuring each district is equally represented in Harrisburg. In the House, each district will represent approximately 62,253 constituents; in the Senate, it’s 254,048. This means some areas where population has grown the past decade, such as the Poconos and Lancaster areas, will see changes and so too will those areas in the state, such as Philadelphia and

marginal population change that occurred in the district over the past 10 years,” Blake said. “As a member of the Senate Democratic Caucus, I take great exception to the implications and motives of the Republican approved draft redistricting plan as it raises serious Constitutional and voting rights questions.” Gov. Tom Corbett, in the Hazleton area Wednesday, said redistricting has been going on for decades and the political party in the minority is always upset when realignment is proposed. “Honestly, I haven’t even had time to

the western half, that have seen population dips. The impact of redistricting will be felt locally as the commission’s proposal calls for numerous municipalities – and in some cases, portions of them – to be part of a new legislative district. For example, Hazleton, Hazle Township and West Hazleton are currently part of the 116th House District, represented by Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township. But under the proposed map the commission has preliminarily adopted, West Hazleton and part of Hazle Township would be moved into the 119th District,

look at the maps,” Corbett said. “But really, when hasn’t redistricting received criticism from the other side?” In the 14th Senatorial District, Yudichak will lose the boroughs of Luzerne, Swoyersville, Exeter, West Pittston, West Wyoming, the city of Pittston, Jeddo and Freeland boroughs and Foster Township. The district would also lose Pocono and Tobyhanna townships in Monroe County. In Carbon County the district would shed Mahoning Township. The 14th District would add Heidelberg, Lynn and Washington townships and Slatington borough in Lehigh County; Allen, East Allen, and Lehigh townships and Bath and Walnutport boroughs in Northampton County; and in Carbon County Parryville and Bowmanstown

now represented by Gerry Mullery, D-Newport Township. The changes also call for Plains and Pittston townships to be split between districts. Currently Plains is represented solely by Eddie Day Pashinski, D-WilkesBarre and Pittston Township is represented by Mike Carroll, DAvoca. The commission will hold a public hearing to listen to what it calls “exceptions” to the proposal. Anyone wishing to testify must submit in writing the name of the individual or group the speaker represents, a signature, mailing address, and daytime tel-

boroughs, and the townships of Penn Forest, Towamensing, Lower Towamensing and Franklin. Yudichak said it is his hope that the final redistricting plan will not split Luzerne County among multiple senatorial districts as proposed in the preliminary plan. “Luzerne County needs to be made as whole as possible when it comes to representation in the Senate,” Yudichak said. “I will continue working with my Senate colleagues to see what action can be taken before a final plan is adopted.” Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, noted that Monroe County will now be its own district, something the residents there fought for over the years. “I am pleased that the 20th Senatorial

District remains largely intact,” Baker said. “While it is disappointing to no longer represent people with whom I have a good working relationship, changes are necessary to bring the population in line with Constitutional requirements. The people of Monroe County have pushed long and hard to be represented through a single senate district, so that is a positive aspect of the new plan.” In the 20th District, Baker will no longer represent Price and Middle Smithfield townships in Monroe County; Fairmount, Huntington, Nescopeck and Salem townships and Nescopeck and New Columbus boroughs in Luzerne County; and will add Foster Township and Freeland and Jeddo boroughs in Luzerne County.

Casterline suffered severe facial injuries that required surgery, police said. Jones’ arraignment on Wednesday was his second for the same fight at his residence.

He had been jailed at the county correctional facility for lack of $75,000 bail from his earlier arrest.

WILKES-BARRE – The names of the people who’ve applied to lead the county as manager under the new Home Rule Charter government will be released after the election to the committee empowered to fill the post, pending a signed agreement that they be kept confidential. The Home Rule Charter Transition Committee voted 5-2 to enact the condition at its last regularly scheduled meeting before the Nov. 8 general election. Voters will elect 11 people to sit on the county council under the charter that does away with the three elected commissioners and many elected row offices. The manager, who will be the chief executive of the county, will be appointed by the transition committee. The job has attracted 70 applicants whose qualifications were being reviewed and graded by committee consultant Ken Mohr. “I have had people say to me, ‘If it’s going to be released I would like to have my name withdrawn,’” said Mohr.

beck raised the issue of confidentiality to “reduce any type of leaks or actions by council candidate without the authority of the” committee. The names of the manager and the clerk of the council could be released if the committee decided to do so, he added. He ran into some opposition from committee member and council candidate Rick Morelli who wanted to wait for the council members to join the transition committee, saying they will be the ones to govern the county come Jan. 2. “It’s a valid point, but I think it should be held off for another week,” said Morelli. Committee member Jim Haggerty, an attorney and mayor of Kingston, suggested that the information be provided on Nov. 14 upon “execution of a confidentiality agreement which simply says they will maintain the confidentiality of the information until further action of the transition team.” There is no penalty if the agreement is broken, acknowledged Bobeck. If people release the names it shows “They don’t want to work with a group,” he said. If purchased before Jan. 31, 2012, senior citizens, 65 and older, will receive a $25 rebate; all others will receive a $15 rebate. If purchased from Feb. 1 to 28, 2012, the full price will be charged, $200. After Feb. 28, 2012, the cost will be $300 for the year and citations will be filed with the district judge for noncompliance with the ordinance. Stickers can be purchased by mail at West Wyoming Borough Building, 464 W. 8th St., West Wyoming, PA 18644. Visa, MasterCard and debit cards are accepted.

No logic to tampering, says defense




Trooper waives DUI hearing


KINGSTON – Defense attorney Demetrius Fannick said there is “no logical reason” his client Joseph Bartorillo tainted the yogurt of two former co-workers with his own semen. “It’s a very bizarre case,” Fannick said after Bartorillo, of Larksville, was arraigned in federal court in Wilkes-Barre Wednesday. “I don’t think even he knows why he did it,” Fannick said. Bartorillo agreed to plead guilty last month after federal investigators say they caught him on camera injecting semen through the alumiBartorillo num foil tops of yogurt containers belonging to co-workers at Procter & Gamble Procter & Gamble in Mehoopany. The coworkers had contacted authorities after noticing strange substances and foul odors in their yogurt. Lab test showed it was semen, and DNA tests later matched it with Bartorillo, Prosecutor Michelle Olshefski said during Bartorillo’s arraignment before Magistrate Judge Malachy Mannion. Bartorillo remained quiet and compliant throughout the hearing, repeatedly confirming he understood the consequences of his plea agreement, which -- if accepted by U.S. District Judge Richard Conaboy -- will mean a two-year prison sentence and a possible fine not to exceed $250,000. About 30 minutes into the hearing Bartorillo admitted his guilt. He was released on his own recognizance provided he continues mental health treatment begun after he was charged. Fannick noted Bartorillo had no past criminal record and no indication of any sexual fetishes or other psychological conditions. Fannick said the FBI had seized Bartorillo’s home computer but found nothing relevant on it. Fannick also noted that Bartorillo, 60, had no problems at work, and that he and the two women who placed their yogurt in the refrigerator at work barely knew each other. “I really don’t believe there was a reason,” Fannick said. “There was no animosity, no vendetta, no hatred between them.” Bartorillo is “very, very remorseful and is trying to figure it out,” Fannick said, adding that “his wife is still behind him and supporting him.” Bartorillo now awaits the preparation of a pre-sentencing report, which Mannion ruled must be completed by Dec. 27. Judge Conaboy will then review the report and decide if he will abide by the plea agreement sentence of two years.


Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett tours the Keystone Job Corps in Butler Township Wednesday. Talking with the governor are, from left, electrician students Marvin Manley, 20, Philadelphia; Celso Alicea, 20, Reading, and Dylan Gibbs, 21, Pittsburgh.

Praise from the governor

Job Corps students get a pat on back “The fact that they are here, voluntarily, is inspiration in itself. .... They are here to put their lives on the right track and to become productive citizens.”


BUTLER TWP. – Brian Holevas stood eye to eye with Gov. Tom Corbett Wednesday and answered the questions. Holevas, 19, of Baltimore, came to the Keystone Job Corps Center for the same reason as all of the students there – to get an education, learn a skill and make life better. “This place has dramatically turned my life around,” Holevas said. “I wouldn’t take my decision back for anything.” Holevas said his friends and family were concerned about him when he was younger. He said he wasn’t getting in trouble, but was “slacking” when those who knew him realized he had potential. “You can’t get anywhere in life being a slacker,” Holevas said. Holevas will graduate from Keystone in June. He will have earned his general equivalency diploma and certification as a plumber’s assistant. He will continue his training after graduation and will seek employment. Holevas and the other Keystone students fit into Corbett’s theme Wednesday. The governor spoke to the Greater Hazleton Chamber of

Commerce before visiting Keystone and told an audience of 250 he was centered on education – reducing the percentage of high school dropouts, providing a quality education, and attracting jobs to the state to fit the needs and skills of the workforce. Corbett said the dropout rate in many state high schools is 40 to 50 percent. He said the lack of education compounds other areas that take a big chunk of the state’s budget – welfare and corrections. Improving education, Corbett said, includes improving the quality of teachers. “We need to set our priorities straight,” he said. “First are our children, the students, then the teachers then parents.” Corbett toured the Keystone site,

visiting the culinary arts, certified nursing assistant and trade skills departments. Students of Keystone are building a new welcome center on campus and Corbett talked to several students at each stop to hear their stories. He said he came away impressed. “The fact that they are here, voluntarily, is inspiration in itself,” Corbett said. “These young men and women have made a decision to be here and learn – to get an education and to be trained in a particular job skill. They are here to put their lives on the right track and to become productive citizens.” Later Wednesday, Bill Patton, spokesman for the House Democratic Caucus, issued a written statement critical of Corbett’s cuts to basic education. “Hearing Tom Corbett promote better access to job skills training is like Kim Kardashian endorsing marriage counseling,” Patton wrote. “The sad fact is the state’s unemployment rate has risen for four straight months since the Corbett budget cuts passed. More than 523,000 Pennsylvanians who want jobs cannot find jobs. Whatever the governor believes he is doing to create jobs, it’s not working.”

Lawyers for teen in slaying case want mental report, seized evidence tossed By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – Attorneys for a teen charged in the shooting death of his great-grandfather asked a judge Wednesday to toss out psychiatric reports and evidence seized, including a notebook the teen allegedly kept that lists things to do, including “kill grandpa.” Cody Lee, 17, of Lake Township, is charged in the December 2009 shooting death of 80-yearold Herbert Lee 23 months ago. His case is scheduled for a hearing on Nov. 21where a judge will hear arguments on why the teen’s case should be heard in juvenile court. It is now being han-

dled in adult criminal court by Senior Judge Joseph Augello. Lee’s attorneys, Melissa Scartelli, PeLee ter Paul Olszewski and Charles Rado, said in court papers an expert report written by psychiatrist John O’Brien should be thrown out and O’Brien should not be permitted to testify for prosecutors because he based his report of Lee off of statements Lee allegedly made to police. Augello ruled in April 2010 those statements where Lee al-

legedly admits to killing his great-grandfather, will not be permitted to be used at any trial. Augello ruled Lee made the statements while he was distressed because he was affected by hypothermia after being out in the woods following the shooting.+ The state Superior and Supreme Courts upheld Augello’s ruling, and Lee’s attorneys contended because the statements aren’t technically allowed to be used, and because O’Brien based his report partially off those statements, O’Brien should not be permitted to testify and his report should be thrown out.

Prosecutors originally asked O’Brien to evaluate Lee in their attempt to keep Lee’s case in adult court. “An expert witness cannot base his opinion upon facts which are not warranted,” Lee’s attorneys wrote. “It would be fundamentally unfair, highly prejudicial, and most importantly, complete impossible for (O’Brien) to, in some way, “disregard” or attempt to set aside (Lee’s statements) in any “revised analysis.”” In their second filing, Lee’s attorneys say two items – a notebook and a back pack – were illegally seized in a search warrant that was conducted a day after

Herbert Lee’s death. Cody Lee’s attorneys said the items were specifically listed in a search warrant, and that they only knew of the items after a 16year-old juvenile told police Lee showed him his notebook that contained a list that included “kill grandpa” and “kill dad.” “(Lee) has a reasonable, protected expectation of privacy in his black ring notebook,” the attorneys wrote, and police had no probable cause to search for and take the items. Augello scheduled a hearing on Nov. 14 for lawyers to argue the request regarding O’Brien’s report and another for the evidence issue on Nov. 21.

A state police trooper arrested by Fairview Township police on evidence of drunken driving waived his right to a preliminary hearing before District Judge Ronald Swank on Wednesday. Bernard Charles Kizis, 47, of Mountain Top, waived two counts of driving under the influence to Luzerne County Court. Township police allege Kizis had a blood alcohol level of .361 percent after he rear ended a vehicle on South Mountain Boulevard on July 1. Kizis was charged with a second DUI offense by Hanover Township police after a traffic stop on Main Kizis Road on Sept. 25. A preliminary hearing on drunken driving charges filed by Hanover Township police is scheduled on Dec. 6 before District Judge Joseph Halesey. WILKES-BARRE

Israel hints of striking Iran

An Israeli official said Wednesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to persuade his Cabinet to authorize a military strike against Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program — a discussion that comes as Israel successfully tests a missile believed capable of carrying a nuclear warhead to Iran. It remained unclear whether Israel was genuinely poised to strike or if it was saber-rattling to prod the international community into taking a tougher line on Iran. Israeli leaders have long hinted at a military option, but they always seemed mindful of the practical difficulties, the likelihood of a furious counterstrike and the risk of regional mayhem.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters escalated their tactics beyond marches, rallies and tent camps Wednesday and moved to disrupt the flow of goods at the nation’s fifthbusiest port. Protesters were arrested as they held a sit-in at the headquarters of cable giant Comcast in Philadelphia. Military veterans marched in uniform in New York, angry at their dim job prospects. And parents and their kids, some in strollers, formed a “children’s brigadeâ€? to join the Oakland, Calif. rallies. “There’s absolutely something wrong with the system,â€? said Jessica Medina, a single mother who attends school part time and works at an Oakland cafĂŠ. “We need to change that.â€? In Los Angeles, New York and other cities, demonstrators planned their own rallies in solidarity with the Oakland protesters, who called for Wednesday’s “general strikeâ€? after the city became a rallying point last week when an Iraq War veteran was injured in clashes with police. Protesters, city officials and business leaders were optimistic the strike would be peaceful. There was little to no visible police presence all day. At a

In the latest court battle over the steamy 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that CBS should not be fined $550,000 for Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction.� The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals held its ground even after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a review after its ruling in a related Fox television case. In that case, the high court said the Federal Communications Commission could threaten fines over the use of even a single curse word uttered on live TV. But Circuit Judge Marjorie Rendell said the Fox case only “fortifies our opinion� that the FCC was wrong to fine CBS over the halftime show. The three-judge panel reviewed three decades of FCC rulings and concluded the agency was changing its policy, without warning, by fining CBS for fleeting nudity.

A protester in the group that marched from the Occupy Philly encampment at City Hall is led away by police from Comcast Center after refusing to leave Wednesday.

briefing, officials described the protests as peaceful and orderly and said no arrests had been made. Potentially minimizing any significant disruptions at the port, leaders of the longshoremen’s union said they could not call for members to join the protests under their contract with the port. Organizers say they want to stop the “flow of capital.� The port sends goods primarily to Asia, including wine as well as rice, fruits and nuts, and han-

dles imported electronics, apparel and manufacturing equipment, mostly from Asia, as well as cars and parts from Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Hyundai. On Wednesday morning, the port was operating as normal and most longshoremen had shown up for work, according to port and union officials. Craig Merrilees, spokesman for the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, said its members were not be-

ing called to strike, but that they supported the protesters. The members “are supporting the concerns raised by Occupy Oakland and the Occupy movement to speak up for the 99 percent and against the corporate greed that is wrecking America,� Merrilees said. Elsewhere, police in Philadelphia arrested nine protesters who staged a sit-in inside the Comcast lobby. Officers handcuffed them and led into police vans as supporters cheered.

Storm’s gone, but thousands in Northeast still lack power Connecticut is the hardest-hit state, with some 550,000 in the dark because of downed lines.

Connecticut Light & Power workers tend to a high voltage power line in Windsor Locks, Conn., Wednesday. More than 90 percent of the town has been without power since the Oct. 29 snowstorm. An estimated 3 million people lost power because of the autumn ice storm.

By DAVE COLLINS Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. — Crews worked feverishly Wednesday to restore power to nearly 1.2 million Northeastern homes and businesses after a freak weekend snowstorm, while many schoolchildren again stayed home and some residents languished for a fourth day in shelters that provided heat and meals. Connecticut, the hardest-hit state, still had nearly 550,000 customers without power, down from more than 800,000. Huge swaths of the state also lost power for days to the remnants of Hurricane Irene in August, and residents were growing restless. Classes were canceled in many areas


for a third day, including a dozen districts in northern New Jersey. The state still had 180,000 homes and businesses without power — a far cry from the 700,000 in the dark during the height of the storm Saturday. Crews reported progress elsewhere, too. Maryland utilities reported scattered outages — a total of about 330,

Driver in fatality will go to trial Caitlyn Hermanofski is charged in a June accident that left a man dead. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A woman charged with vehicular homicide in a June 2010 accident that left a 45-year-old man dead will face a trial in Luzerne County court. Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury said he will schedule a trial date after a Dec. 1 hearing to determine the status of Caitlyn Hermanofski’s case. Hermanofski, 23, of Hunlock Township, is charged with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, accidents causing death, and driving with a suspended license in the June 8 incident that killed Thomas Hauze. Hermanofski’s attorney, Ferris Webby, said his client has been in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment for a number of months, and that she will be released to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility later this month. Assistant District Attorneys Michael Vough and Michelle Hardik said the trial should last about two days. According to court papers, Hermanofski was driving under the influence of alcohol and prescription medications when she struck a Harley-Davidson motorcycle operated by Hauze on state Route 309 in Fairview Township. Hauze, 45, underwent emergency surgery and died June 21. The Luzerne County

Coroner’s Office ruled his death a homicide after an autopsy showed he died from pulmonary embolism, or a blockage in the main artery of the lung. Fairview Township police alleged Hermanofski, who was pregnant at the time, had a blood-alcohol level of .251 percent, and had opiates and anti-anxiety medications in her system at the time of the crash. In March, Hermanofski was charged with harassment and simple assault when she allegedly pushed an officer responding to a disturbance at a WilkesBarre apartment. Police said Hermanofski and a man were intoxicated and caring for an infant in an apartment in disarray, police said. Hermanofski’s bail had been revoked because of the new charge, leading her to be jailed. She is awaiting trial on charges relating to the March incident.






W-B teen gets prison for robbery at gunpoint Jared Goodwin was charged with stealing a necklace from a couple at Kirby Park. By SHEENA DELAZIO

WILKES-BARRE – A city man charged with robbery where police say he pointed a weapon at another man and stole an $800 necklace was sentenced Wednesday to 18 to 36 months in county jail. Jared Goodwin, 19, of Kidder Street, was sentenced on a single count of robbery by Luzerne County Judge Lewis Wetzel.

“I apologize for my actions, and I apologize to the victim,” Goodwin told Wetzel before being sentenced. Goodwin was charged in April after Ruben and Rachel Rosario told police they had been robbed and assaulted at gunpoint at Kirby Park. The two told police Goodwin brandished a silver pistol and told Ruben Rosario he would shoot him unless Rachel Rosario turned over an $800 necklace. Police said the Rosarios’ young daughter was with them at the time of the robbery. Goodwin’s attorney, Jonathan

Ursiak, said his client has had no misconducts while incarcerated at the county prison for 192 days, and that he has a prison job and has received his general equivalency degree and is a “bright and intelligent kid.” Ursiak said Goodwin has had a hardlife,andthathedoesn’tknow his father, doesn’t know the whereabouts of his mother or sister, and witnessed the death of his half-brother, Donald Spry, who was shot and killed in a drug deal gone bad in December 2008. Goodwin said he had been using drugs at the time of the robbery.

Assistant District Attorney Mamie Phillips said she has known Goodwin for a while through a juvenile court and the case of Fernando Gotay, who was charged and convicted in Spry’s death. After receiving reports from a juvenile center in relation to firing shots the night his half-brother died, she said she thought Goodwin had turned his life around. Phillips said she did not expect to see Goodwin back in court, but she noted he is young and still has time to make something of his life. Wetzel said with a warning: “Stay away from drugs.”

2nd man charged in local stabbing captured in Monroe County Terrill Mattox of Wilkes-Barre is being held an unrelated drug case. By EDWARD LEWIS

WRIGHT TWP. – A second man charged in a stabbing that Fairview Township police allege was drug-related three months ago was captured by state police in Monroe County on Monday. Terrill Shakur Mattox, 27, of Academy Street, Wilkes-Barre, was arraigned by District Judge Ronald Swank on two counts of

aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy and a single count of burglary. Bail was set at $50,000. Mattox was remanded to the Monroe County Correctional Facility where he is being held on $50,000 on an unrelated drug case filed by state police on Monday. Township police allege Mattox and Armoni Johnson, 24, of North Sherman Street, WilkesBarre, stabbed Justin Barna at the Capitol Hill Apartments on Charter Drive on Aug. 7. Barna suffered stab wounds to his chest, abdomen and back. According to the criminal

complaint: Barna told police Johnson and a man he knows as Terrill were his heroin suppliers. He claimed Johnson called him the night before he was stabbed and told him that he was robbed of drugs and blamed him for it. Barna offered that Johnson could search his apartment for the missing drugs. Barna told police Johnson called him on Aug. 7 and asked him to stash drugs. He refused and later heard a knock on the door. When Barna opened the door, he claimed he was immediately

stabbed, the criminal complaint says. Barna alleged Mattox held him while he was being stabbed. Johnson was apprehended when he was found at a house on South River Street, WilkesBarre, on Aug. 22. He is facing two counts each of aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy and a single count of burglary in Luzerne County Court. Johnson was released from jail after posting $75,000 bail on Sept. 27. Mattox is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 8 before Swank.

FEMA trailer park set Wyoming County flood victims will occupy the site in Tunkhannock Township. By STEVE MOCARSKY

TUNKHANNOCK TWP. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency plans to build a temporary trailer park for flood victims in Wyoming County. A public notice of its FEMA’s plans to construct the Highlands Temporary Community Housing Site on eight acres off Wellwood Drive in Tunkhannock Township was published Wednesday in The Times Leader’s legal ads. FEMA provides up to 18 months of housing assistance to displaced flood victims, which usually comes in the form of rental assistance. If victims have a hard time finding a place to rent, FEMA provides mobile homes or trailers. If flood victims can’t find suitable space for the trailers, FEMA will develop a community housing site. Judy Dingher, Tunkhannock

DEADLINE Continued from Page 1A

vides a proof of loss form and usually prepares the form based on an adjuster’s estimates. Edward L. Connor, FEMA’s deputy associate administrator for federal insurance, issued a memo on Oct. 14 that extends the proof of loss filing deadline for buildings and contents flooded between Sept. 5 and Sept. 22 in Pennsylvania and New York. Flooding in Luzerne County occurred Sept. 9, so the original deadline was Nov. 8. The new deadline is Jan. 7. Connor also issued a memo

Township secretary/treasurer, said rental space around Tunkhannock is “very limited due to the gas industry. It’s very hard to find apartments, and homes or even mobile home sites because a lot of gas company employees rent sites and put a camper there.” FEMA prepared a draft environmental assessment for the proposed park and the public has until 7 p.m. today to review it and offer comment by phone, fax or email. The comment period, which began Wednesday, is short because of the emergency nature of the project, the ad states. Dingher said township officials had a teleconference with state and federal officials on Oct. 26 regarding the proposed park. Dingher said FEMA needed a site in Wyoming County that would accommodate 40 to 50 trailers and choices were limited because there aren’t many undeveloped areas with accessible central sewer and water lines. She said a nearby private company has those services and will allow them to be extended to the extending the deadline for filing proof of loss statements for damage caused by Hurricane Irene. The original filing deadline was Oct. 25; the new deadline is Nov. 24. Glass said all companies that provide insurance under the National Flood Insurance Program must honor those deadlines. That’s good news to flood victims such as Shawn Stanford. “We’re within a week or so off that (original) deadline and I don’t have my statement of loss. I spoke to my adjuster recently and he’s so overwhelmed that he doesn’t have it completed,” Stanford, of West Pittston, said in an email. So far, neither FEMA nor the

site. Dingher said FEMA would need to operate the site for 18 to 24 months, and township supervisors made a two-year limit a requirement for local approval. FEMA estimated that no more than 125 people would live at the site, so traffic impact would be minimal. The agency would arrange for private trash pickup and accommodations would be made for students to continue attending their current schools if possible, Dingher said. After all necessary approvals are in place, it should take about 45 days to prepare the site for occupancy, she said. U.S. Small Business Administration has extended the Nov. 14 deadline for applying for individual disaster assistance or disaster loans. Flood victims can register with FEMA at the Disaster Recovery Center at Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA and may apply for disaster loans until the deadline. SBA spokesman John Frederick said that anyone who received a loan application from the SBA and didn’t complete and submit it “could be throwing away money. If you’re not approved for a loan through the SBA, we send you back to FEMA for possibly more grant




Despite flood, candy maker Stopay on rebound By MATT HUGHES

John Stopay, second-generation owner of Jon L. Stopay Candies, plans to reopen his shop by the end of next week in a new location in Plains Plaza shopping center.

PLAINS TWP. – A Luzerne County chocolate maker devastated by the September flood is making a sweet comeback, just in time for the holidays. When the Susquehanna River crested at a historic high of 42.6 feet Sept. 9, Jon L. Stopay Candies on River Street was inundated with 9 feet of water. Owners John and Mary Ann Stopay were able to get their stock of chocolates out, and thankfully the chocolate is made at another location outside the flood plain. But they lost display cases, shelving and pretty much everything else inside the small one-story candy shop. John and Mary Ann Stopay were devastated, and at 67 and 72 years old, respectively, they questioned whether they would reopen. “Every time we drive by our store it tears our hearts a little bit,” Mary Ann Stopay said Wednesday. “My husband was devastated. His father started the business and to close the doors and not be able to reopen again, it’s been hard. It’s very, very hard,

but I said we have to; we have to go forward.” But necessity, customer loyalty and the aid of fellow businesses have coalesced to bring the business, which has operated since the 1940s, back. The Stopays have rented a storefront in the Plains Plaza shopping center, about a mile south of the former store on River Street, and plan to reopen by the end of next week. Mary Ann Stopay said the flood struck as the store was preparing for the busy holiday season, after they had placed orders for items like candy boxes and taken some early customer orders. Choosing not to reopen could have cost them more than

$100,000, she said. “In a way, I guess it’s better that we had these contracts signed and we had to go forward,” Mary Ann Stopay said. “It pushed us a little.” Other businesses also offered help, offering to lend the chocolate shop space, supplies and other aid, and the Greater WilkesBarre Chamber of Commerce also provided them a grant. Mary Ann Stopay said she and her husband are grateful for the help and excited about reopening their business. “It’s time for us to retire, but candy is a good type of environment to be working in,” Mary Ann Stopay said. “We have a lot of fun working, we really do.”

money.” Frederick advised against waiting to se the outcome of their insurance claim or for loan rates to be reduced, as that could cause them to miss the deadline. Currently, homeowners and renters pay up to 2.6 percent and small business owners from 4 percent to 6 percent on federal

disaster recovery loans, depending on whether they have access to another type of loan. Frederick said local flood victims can apply for loans at the Disaster Recovery Center at LCCC. He recommends applicants ask an expert from SBA to review the application with them at the center or at the Business Center on the fourth

floor of the Stegmaier Building, 7 Wilkes-Barre Blvd., WilkesBarre, to help speed the process. Frederick said experts at the Small Business Development Center at Wilkes University also will prepare income statements, balance sheets, profit-and-loss statements and schedules for liability at no charge for small business owner flood victims.

Ruby Burns October 30, 2011 Ruby Shipley Burns, 97, of Monroeville, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 30, 2011. Born in England, on September 14, 1914, she was a daughter of the late Arthur and Josephine Parker Shipley. Ruby loved dancing and was very fond of ballet. She was offered a position with a New York City ballet company but was forced by her mother to decline because of her tender years and inexperience. Before marriage she worked in her mother’s store on Bigelow Street in the Greenfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh, and later as a seamstress for a milliner and a sales clerk. After Ruby was married to Wilkes-Barre native, Edward J. Burns, in 1939, she was devoted to her family and active in the communities where she lived, including Kingston, Forty Fort and Dallas.

Parking limited in Nanticoke By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

NANTICOKE – Business parking will be easier in the city’s downtown due to an ordinance passed on Wednesday which allows for 30-minute parking zones near retail establishments. The city council also voted to award the city’s cable renewal service to the Cohen Law Group at a fee of $9,900. The group negotiates the fee the cable company pays to the city. Nanticoke ’s Solicitor William Finnegan Jr. said the cost of the


law group’s services in providing ongoing renewal revenue from Comcast Cable would be recouped in one or two years. In other business, council voted to renew the city’s joint law enforcement agreement with Warrior Run borough for 2012. The renewal agreement states that any traffic fines levied by Nanticoke officers patrolling in Warrior Run will be kept by Nanticoke.

added Reino. “Many township residents are required to pay the tax to other municipalities in which they are employed.” No residents were present for public comment. The meeting also gave the supervisors an opportunity to present a statement of support to the Pennsylvania Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, recognizing the role of the Guard and Reserve, and as a show of support for the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act. The board will meet again Nov. 9 to discuss budget issues, including the proposed increase in the real estate tax, and on Nov. 16 to discuss the proposed increase of the earned income tax. The next public work session will be on Monday at 7 p.m. in preparation for the regular supervisors meeting. Geri Gibbons

Kingston Twp. moves on $52 worker tax

KINGSTON TWP. – Township supervisors took their first step Tuesday night toward levying a new tax on people who work in the township. The officials held the first reading of an ordinance to impose the local services tax, which would cost taxpayers $52 annually, $10 of which would be paid to the Dallas School District. The tax would replace the annual $10 occupational privilege tax. “This tax would be paid by those who are employed within the township,” said Supervisor Jeffrey Box. “We would be collecting funds from those who enjoy the benefits of the township because they work here.” Supervisors Chairman James Reino also expressed his support for the tax. Box and Reino cited the 2011 deficit and increasing costs of providing services, including upkeep of township roadways, in explaining their support. “I remember years in which we were able to pave over 10 streets,” said Box. “Now we are lucky if one or two streets are paved.” “Kingston Township is one of the few municipalities in the county to not require the tax,”

Resident urges caution on natural gas drilling

DALLAS TWP. – Hands shaking, Wendy Cominsky nervously read excerpts from national news articles pointing out the hazards of natural gas drilling, at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting. “I’m asking you to take this into consideration,” she pleaded. Last month, the supervisors approved an amendment to the





sentative who assured him the township would be notified prior to any activity on the line. “They will set up a schedule with the township so we will have answers for the public as to what they’re doing and when.” Camille Fioti

zoning ordinance that would allow for natural gas development in the township under a conditional use provision. “There is not enough research,” Cominsky said. “Really take your time on this.” Another resident asked Solicitor Tom Brennan if a special meeting could be scheduled to answer the numerous questions residents have regarding the issue. Brennan suggested that residents email their questions to him or township planning consultant, Jack Varaly, which will then be addressed. Brennan pointed out that although the questions will be addressed, a decision on the matter can only be made in a public forum. “We have to look at this from both sides,” he cautioned. “Or we’ve gone through all of this effort for nothing.” Chief Gathering LLC is in the middle of zoning hearings for its application to build a natural gas metering station off Hildebrandt Road about 1,300 feet from Dallas schools. In a related matter, Mike Dickinson of Williams Field Services, LLC updated the board on the status of a gathering line installation project, which will tap into the Transco interstate pipeline. Township Engineer Tom Doughton said he spoke with a Transco repre-

Pension fund change creating controversy

EXETER – What passed as a routine motion to transfer the Exeter Borough Police Pension Fund from the locally operated ASCO Financial Group to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney at the Sept. 6 council meeting caused quite a controversy during Tuesday’s regular meeting. On Tuesday, Exeter Borough Council voted to rescind the Sept. 6 motion because it was not passed in compliance with certain aspects of Pennsylvania State Act 44, which requires that changes to pension plans follow certain procedures. The Sept. 6 motion passed by a 5-2 margin with council members Richard Murawski and Daniel DeRoberto voting against the change. On Tuesday night, the motion to rescind the vote to transfer the fund passed with council

but noted council members had heard at least one proposal from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Moses noted he had not been present for any of those proposals. Pizano stated that he may have initiated the contact between Morgan Stanley. Pizano also mentioned that he was not aware whether the council was in compliance with Act 44. He also said he could not recall who else had been at the meeting. Exeter resident Mary Pat Coleman then polled the council in order to find out that all members present at Tuesday’s meeting were also present at the Morgan Stanley presentation. The council members also stated they too were unaware as to whether they were in compliance with Act 44. B. Garret Rogan

Also on Tuesday, the council voted unanimously to publicly advertise for requests for proposals from firms interested in taking on the fund and to establish guidelines that would ensure that all dealings are in compliance with Act 44. Many residents in attendance were upset that the original decision to transfer the fund was made without any public input. At the September meeting, former council member and current council candidate Joseph Esposito asked whether requests for proposals had been advertised.

Red tape harming Medicaid users


T’S ONE THING for the state Department of Public Welfare to be vigilant and make sure those people who receive aid are eligible. It’s another to become a slave to red tape. Recent episodes suggest that too much of the latter has occurred as Pennsylvania steps up case reviews. In September, the department removed 31,741 people from Medical Assistance, the insurance that covers the disabled, poor or gravely ill. Almost18,000 of them were children. This year, DPW has cut off more than 100,000 from the program, which serves nearly 2 million residents. The head of a local affiliate of United Cerebral Palsy that provides care for severely disabled clients said it has been seeing five termination letters a week. Before this summer it rarely saw five a year. A caseworker who also is a union officer in Allegheny Coun-

ty’s Strip District assistance office said the problem has developed in the last few months, as workers were told to deal with backlogged cases. The Corbett administration’s efforts to crack down on abuse are not solely to blame; staffing levels, reduced under former Gov. Ed Rendell, and a new computer system made it more difficult to get paperwork properly completed on time. DPW is an enormous department that performs complicated, expensive and important work. Yet officials must never forget that their decisions have real consequences for needy Pennsylvanians who might be too ill or impaired to preserve their benefits on their own. The department must make sure its caseworkers have the resources they need to do a thorough job that doesn’t endanger the health of their clients. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

any people have asked me why I wanted to run for a seat on the new Luzerne County Council. I am running because I believe I can bring a level of experience unique to this new form of government. First, I was extremely gratified to receive endorsements from all three major newspapers in Luzerne County. Many people know that I spent eight years on the Hazleton Area School Board, but fewer might be aware that when I was elected president I led the effort to remove the board from the process of hiring teachers. I also instituted a policy to release full agendas to the public three full days before every meeting. The Hazleton Area district’s $120 million budget and number of employees is similar to Luzerne County, and this new form of government also is similar to the makeup of a school board. I understand fully the strengths and weaknesses of this type of governing structure, and I have demonstrated both the willingness and ability to fight the “business-as-usual” mentality so prevalent in the past. I feel very strongly that we can no longer support candidates who further the notion that it is acceptable for government officials to promote nepotism, award insider contracts and further stain the reputation of Luzerne County. Recent events make it crystal clear that our county is in desperate need of a new beginning that includes transparency and sound decision-making. This is the first, and potentially greatest, opportunity to set Luzerne County on a solid foundation and re-establish a level of trust between the governing structure and the residents. We cannot afford to waste this chance by electing unqualified people or those who will represent special interests. A new beginning is certainly possible, but we must choose wisely. The next generation is counting on us. Please vote Nov. 8. Elaine M. Curry Candidate for Luzerne County Council Drums

Council hopeful believes environment an issue


am an independent-thinking candidate for Luzerne County Council. There are many people running for council under the banner of “Independent.” Being an Independent candidate and an independent-thinking candidate are two different concepts. Independent candidates should be thinking about the environment, clean air and water, solar alternative energy and have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to

fracking and natural gas drilling. I consider the above to be independent issues, set apart from the usual political rhetoric and grandstanding about high taxes and fixing the county budget. I agree that we have a serious budget deficit, but I do strongly think that as a candidate I have a responsibility to raise awareness about our environment, being mindful of conservation issues during this campaign. Some people say that these issues have no bearing on Luzerne County or this campaign and that I am wasting my time thinking about this in light of all the bigger problems we face in the coming months. I remind these people that Moon Lake Park is county-owned land. It could be leased by the county manager for gas drilling. Is this something that we want for our county? I ask the taxpayers to think long and hard about these issues when they vote on Nov. 8 for county council candidates, “Independent,” or otherwise. Blythe Evans Candidate for Luzerne County Council Plymouth

Rice Twp. candidate disputes criticisms


take exception to ads that apparently my opponent in the race for Rice Township supervisor has placed in a free Mountain Top newspaper. They are nasty and untrue. While it is widely known that I have been a correspondent for the “Mountaintop Eagle” for many years, I have not written about Rice Township since 2009. Lou Konopelski has referred to my having a suit against Rice Township. This is true; I am seeking legal redress. Konopelski isn’t being forthright about his role in my wrongful termination and the whistleblower claim I filed, based on his issuance of permits. The situation in Rice Township is so ridiculous that it is worthy of a Monty Python sketch. It is an embarrassment to anyone with a long-term association to the progressive, efficient organization that used to oversee township business. And Konopelski seemingly is the supervisors’ hand-picked candidate.


I’m proud of my 20 years of service to Rice Township. I was audited repeatedly each year without incident. I obtained hundreds of thousands of grant dollars. I developed a broad network of contacts with local, county, state and federal agencies, and I enjoyed good relations with the residents. It is important to have someone in office with the reputation and experience to follow the rules. If you can’t expect honesty and integrity from your local officials before the election, what can you expect after? Marcia Thomas Rice Township

Writer dissatisfied with Leighton endorsement


’m disappointed to see The Times Leader endorsed Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton. Of course, it also endorsed the “I don’t know” DA. There’s no big secret to running a city the size of Wilkes-Barre. That’s why you have a city council and department heads. Mayor Leighton runs the city as if he owns it, not like he serves it. That attitude allows him to hire his own relatives, friends and contributors seemingly with no pangs of conscience. He seemingly wards off any development or investment in the city that will not benefit his supporters. Has anyone, and I’m talking to your editorial board, noticed how much of the downtown is controlled by Leighton Realty? Bob Evans Wilkes-Barre

Please come forward and do the right thing! You hit my vehicle and ran without so much as a note. Now I have to assume the responsibility for repairs. Please contact the Plymouth Police Department, if you are a decent individual and want to do the right thing.

WA superintendent disputes letter



s superintendent of the Wyoming Area School District, I find it necessary, with much reluctance, to answer a letter to the editor. It was written by board member Frank Casarella, in his endorsement of certain school board candidates (“Wyoming Area board needs new majority,” Oct. 29). Mr. Casarella has made disparaging remarks against me. Mr. Casarella stated I did not provide him with information that he requested regarding heating and lighting costs of the buildings, number of staff and students and vacant classrooms. The facts are that during the budget process, Mr. Casarella, along with all board members, received comprehensive reports from our business agent, the facilities director, administration and myself relative to district revenues, expenditures, number of staff, salaries, enrollment data and operating costs of the district, including a detailed analysis of the operating costs of the Sarah J. Dymond Elementary. In addition, monthly district expenditure reports are included in board packets given to all board members. Mr. Casarella had all the information he needed to make a well-informed decision. Wyoming Area is recognized as a premier district in the county and throughout the state. Our high PSSA scores, the top-ranked colleges and universities that our graduates attend, our ranking in the top 15 percent of more than 500 school districts in the commonwealth and our state-ofthe-art technology resources speak for themselves. It is disappointing that a former teacher and administrator of our district, now a board member, would criticize

these accomplishments in order to gain what he calls a “majority.” Rather than making misleading and untrue statements in the news media about fellow board members and me, he should be touting the great accomplishments of the district and stressing the importance of working collaboratively with all board members and the superintendent. These are difficult times in education and difficult decisions need to be made. This is no time for the shortsighted, majority/ minority board member mentality of Mr. Casarella. As superintendent, it is my desire to work cooperatively with nine individuals who will work as a team, for a common cause – the betterment of the district and quality education for all of our students. I trust the public will make the right decision. Raymond Bernardi Superintendent Wyoming Area School District

Northwest needs its taxpayers’ team


nce again taxpayers in the Northwest Area School District are faced with a critical school board election. Their choice is whether to elect candidates who will maintain a board majority that is fiscally responsible or elect those who could form a new majority and place financial burdens on many in the district in a time of economic hardship. If the current majority is to hold, it is important that the team of Al Gordon, Ralph Killian, Daryl Morgan and Randy Tomasacci be elected. During the last contract negotiations, Gordon and Morgan – along with Pete Lanza, a sitting board member, and Charles Brace, who is not running – spent 22 days in the Luzerne County Cour-

thouse, where the Pennsylvania State Education Association forced them when negotiations were not going its way. The union used this ploy, figuring board negotiators would cave in after a few days. How wrong the PSEA was! It underestimated the fortitude of Northwest’s board negotiators in not agreeing to a contract that would have been financially disastrous for many in the district. The board’s perseverance resulted in something of a first: Teachers lost four years of retroactive pay. The team of Gordon, Killian, Morgan and Tomasacci is not anti-education or antiteacher, as union and other opponents have attempted, or will attempt, to portray them. They merely ask the teachers’ union to face financial reality as so many other taxpayers have had to do. Taxpayers, please don’t sit out this election. Teachers and their supporters will show up in force, as they did in the May primaries, to attempt to elect their candidates. Get out and vote for the taxpayers’ team. Al Gordon Shickshinny

recreation, and does not meet “county standards” of religious ministry. Our fellowship hall is used for special Sunday school classes, new membership classes, baptismal classes, our children’s program called “Olympians” and teenage programs. We also open our doors to the community for events such as senior dinners and blood drives. We didn’t build this new church so we could play and have a good time. It was built to further our ministry of reaching our children, teens and adults with the Gospel and to be a blessing to our community. It is not right for the government to tax the Lord’s work. Members of our congregation pay their taxes and then give generously to support the ministry of the Gospel. They should not be taxed again on their contributions. I believe that a change in leadership is needed in Wyoming County. On the Nov. 8 ballot there are two candidates running for commission-

er who are very opposed to taxing churches. They are Republican Tom Henry and Democrat Ron Williams. The two incumbents who have taxed churches are Republican Judy Mead and Democrat Stark Batron. Are we so desperate for funds in Wyoming County that we need to tax religion? If you have any questions about this issue, please call me at 333-5185 or 333-1493. Rev.

am the pastor of the Northmoreland Baptist Church of Center Moreland. This letter is to inform you of Wyoming County’s practice of taxing churches. Our church is more than 150 years old, and in 2008 we finished building our new facility. We were never taxed on our main building or our fellowship hall before, but the commissioners now are taxing part of our new building. The reason they gave for this property tax was that our multi-purpose fellowship hall is really a gymnasium used for

A lawyer since 2009, the Kingston Township resident maintains a private practice and works for an insurance defense firm. She expects her campaign expenses to exceed $200,000. From where is that bankroll coming? Hard to believe a 29-year-old with almost no trial experience who is two years out of law school is self-financing. This is hardly a résumé that any intelligent voter should consider as the foundation of election as district attorney, the top law enforcement officer in Luzerne County. Think of it this way: Would you want to trust an intricate surgery to a person two years out of medical school with virtually no experience? Maybe more practice is necessary before seeking an office such as district attorney. Experience counts. Vote for Jackie Musto Carroll.

Storekeeper couple, others from area are charged with distributing bath salts

around 2 p.m. and transported under guard to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility where he collapsed in the infirmary just after 3:30 p.m. Green was rushed to WilkesBarre General where he was pronounced dead. In a prepared statement, Dr. Steven Pierdon, executive vice president and chief medical officer at Geisinger Northeast, said: “Mr. Green was medically stable, recovering appropriately and ready to leave the hospital. There were no known underlying medical issues that would have prevented him from being discharged. As we do in all cases of patient demise, we will review Mr. Green’s case in detail.” State police at Wyoming charged Green with aggravated assault and terroristic threats for the shooting in which investigators said he was carrying two “replica firearms” that officers thought were actual weapons, according to arrest papers. Police responded to the area on a report a man was carrying a firearm. Green refused officers’ commands to drop the weapon. When he raised his arm and the weapon, police exchanged gunfire with him, arrest papers say. Green was arraigned inside the progressive care unit at Geisinger on Oct. 28. He acknowledged the bedside arraignment and nodded that he understood the brief court proceeding. Arrest papers identified WilkesBarre Police Sgt. Matt Stash, Officer Mitchell Rennick and Luzerne County Deputy Sheriff Courtney Staley as involved in the shooting. All three are on administrative paid leave. Green’s wife, Vilena Green, could not be reached for comment on Wednesday. Attorney Nanda Palissery said he is representing Green’s family and did not rule out the possibility of a civil lawsuit against police, Geisinger Wyoming Valley and the county correctional facility. Palissery said he was informed Wednesday afternoon by Luzerne County Coroner John Corcoran that Green was not taking his anticlotting medication at the hospital. Staff writers Terrie Morgan-Besecker and Jerry Lynott contributed to this report.

A Wilkes-Barre couple was indicted by a federal grand jury and three others were charged on Wednesday with the illegal distribution of bath salts. Peter J. Smith, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, said that the charges stem from a multijurisdictional investigation that targeted the illegal sale of ephedrine and 3,4-methylendioxyprovalerone, commonly referred to as “MDPV” or “bath salts.” The indictment charges Pritesh Patel and Kekulben Patel with conspiracy, distribution of ephedrine knowing of its wrongful use,

the bear to State Game Lands 57 along the border of Wyoming and Sullivan counties, and it wound up in Edwardsville as it was trying to get back to Nanticoke. Turns out, having a bear wander through a residential area is a pretty common occurrence in the region. It keeps Pennsylvania Game Commission officers extremely busy and, in many instances, is avoidable. “The populations of both people and bears are increasing and every day I get calls about a bear in a neighborhood,” said WCO Dave Allen, who covers Mountain Top and southern Luzerne County. Allen said he has trapped and relocated more than 10 bruins this year, including five in five days in Fairview Township. Calls from citizens reporting bear complaints have increased by 40 percent, Allen said, and much of the reason behind the problem is habitat loss. Wooded areas have been erased by housing developments and the bears that live there turn to the residential areas for an easy food source

and money laundering. Pritesh Patel is also charged with conspiracy to distribute MDPV. The indictment alleges that the couple sold large quantities of ephedrine to others engaged in manufacturingmethamphetamine,that the sales occurred at the Patels’ convenience store in Plains Township and that Pritesh Patel conspired with others to sell MDPV on Oct. 24 in Luzerne County. Ephedrine sales and supplies are regulated by the government becauseitiscommonlyusedinthe manufacture of methamphetamine. The ephedrine in this case

was imported from India and not legallyavailableforsaletothepublic, Smith said. As of Oct. 21, MDPV, or bath salts, has been categorized as a Schedule I controlled substance under an emergency scheduling action by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration; its sale is a felony violation of federal law. The temporary scheduling action will remain in effect for at least one year while the DEA and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services study whether the chemicals should be permanently controlled. Also charged and arrested Wednesday were Nora Riley, 43; Naishad Patel, 29; and Dipika Pa-

So what happened to the bear that wandered into Edwardsville on Tuesday? Conservation Officer Jerry Kapral got a call at 3 p.m. that the bear was seen near Woodward Street. He arrived and said the bear wandered into a small patch of woods and there were a few more sightings reported in the area that night. By Wednesday afternoon, however, things were quiet and Kapral surmised that the bear crossed the river and headed back to the Nanticoke area.

If you see a bear in your neighborhood, don’t panic. Conservation Officer Jerry Kapral said it’s best to leave the animal alone and head indoors. Black bears are not typically aggressive, he said, and they will likely leave the area if they aren’t being fed. “Go back in the house and give it space,” Kapral said. “Don’t antagonize it and certainly don’t try to throw food to it.”

consisting of garbage and bird feeders. In some instances the bears are intentionally fed, which only exacerbates the problem. “They become habituated to the area,” Allen said. “There is one bear I know of that is so fat it doesn’t even look like a bear. It’s continually being fed human food.” Allen and Kapral both agreed that there will always be bears that wander into residential areas. It’s just a circumstance of living in Northeastern Pennsylvania, they said. Kapral said most of his bear complaints originate from Hanover Township, Nanticoke, Kingston and Edwardsville. He’s trapped and relocated a dozen bears so far this year, including three from the area




surrounding the K.M. Smith Elementary School. Instances of bears in urban areas tend to increase during the fall, Kapral said, because the bruins are trying to put on fat for the winter and that’s easier to do by feasting on garbage than searching for mast, such as acorns, in the woods. “They get more bang for the buck eating out of trash cans and bird feeders,” Kapral said. “We’re never not going to have bears show up in town, but we can minimize it.” That can be done by keeping trash cans inside at night and putting them out the morning

tel, 27; all of Wilkes-Barre. Criminal complaints allege that Riley distributed and conspired with Pritesh Patel to distribute MDPV. Dipika and Naishad Patel, husband and wife, are charged with distributing and conspiring to distribute MDPV from their store, Noxen Food Mart, in Wyoming County. The defendants each face a maximum of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million. And the indictment seeks forfeiture of the contents of the defendants’ bank accounts and the Patels’ home at 127 Jason Drive. Smith said federal authorities are working with state and local law enforcement to prosecute

“anyone who peddles dangerous chemicals for profit.” The DEA’s Office of Diversion Control, the state Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation, Plains Township police, state police and the Wyoming County Drug Task Force investigated and Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy Phillips is prosecuting. The use of bath salts and the accompanying dangerous behavior of users started becoming a problem for police in Luzerne County last spring and several municipalities quickly banned the drugs. Gov. Tom Corbett signed legislation in June making their possession, use and sale illegal in the state.


Authorities respond to a bear sighting in Edwardsville on Tuesday. The situation is familiar to the state Game Commission.

before pickup. Bird feeders can also be stored indoors once darkness falls to limit the temptation. And, most importantly, resist the urge to feed bears. Not only does it usually lead to problems down the road, Kapral said, but it’s against the

law. “Dealing with bears and other wildlife in urban areas is part of the job,” he said. “But it can be frustrating when you’re dealing with people who either don’t care or don’t want to follow our recommendations to avoid these conflicts.”

Dodgers go up for sale by McCourt




Teamwork is the same in any language

L.A. owner agrees to sell franchise through a bankruptcy court auction, with the price approaching $1 billion. By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Maybe a “For Sale” sign should be erected outside Dodger Stadium. Team, ballpark, land and television rights available. Price: $1 billion and up. The process of finding a new owner for the Los Angeles Dodgers began early Wednesday when current boss Frank McCourt and Major League Baseball released a statement saying they had agreed to McCourt a court-supervised sale of the once-glamorous and now bankrupt franchise. In the long-term, the deal will allow the Dodgers to move ahead and try to get back to baseball’s elite. But the club’s fans may well have to endure another season adrift as the sale works itself out. While the sides hope for a quick deal, giving McCourt the money to pay his divorce settlement by April, MLB sales sometimes drag on for six months to 11⁄2 years. Once bidders are identified, the court is likely to conduct an auction. “Baseball can choose to have their approval process move like molasses in winter or like Castor oil through a baby,” said Marc Ganis, president of Sportscorp, a Chicago-based consulting firm. The price likely will break the record for a baseball franchise, topping the $845 million paid by the Ricketts family

The coaches still won’t proclaim Matt McGloin the starter. The No. 1 quarterback. Or publicly give him any kind of meaningful label. Now 10 weeks since the season started, that may not come at all this year. Coach Joe Paterno said this week that McGloin and Rob Bolden will both continue to play. Even still, McGloin’s approach has not changed. As frustrating as this season has been at times for him, McGloin has not wavered in the belief that he’s the man

quarterbacks do.” McGloin has never acted any differently. Not even back in the spring of 2010 when he was considered by most to be an afterthought in the competition to replace Daryll Clark under center. If the West Scranton grad ever had a doubt that he would eventually come out on top, he never showed it. And that type of confidence seems to have transferred over to his teammates, who have been effusive in their praise for McGloin. Particularly after

Trent Richardson


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama’s Trent Richardson is eager to show what he can do against No. 1 LSU. Not because Saturday night’s showdown is the type of game that serve as a showcase for the Heisman Trophy candidate. The star tailback for the No. 2 Crimson Tide said it’s because he was injured and didn’t play much against the Tigers. “This game means a lot to me because I didn’t get to play in it last year except for about one quarter,” Richardson said.

“So I really can’t wait to showcase what a healthy Trent can do in this game.” Richardson was hurt when LSU’s Patrick Peterson slammed him to the ground on a short touchdown catch and became an otherwise non-factor in last year’s game, carrying six times for 28 yards.

ome kids came down from Canada. A couple others showed up from Russia. Others never had to leave the Wyoming Valley. They came from different backgrounds, different styles, different states and different countries to join forces at the Revolution Ice Center as members of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Junior Knights. And together, they discovered what bridging their differences can do. “It’s probably the best team I ever played on,” said Paul DeNaples, a defenseman who lives in Scranton. That’s not just because their youth hockey team for 14-year-old players is having so much success on the ice. The Knights are 22-2 overall, 7-0 on top of the Atlantic Youth Hockey League’s Bantam Major Division and ranked eighth among 108 teams in the country. But it’s the camaraderie they’ve developed together that really makes this season such fun. “We bond as a team,” said Alex Rowella, a forward from Connecticut. That connection didn’t come instantly. Head coach Oleksandr Vasko – who started the Knights programs six years ago – wasn’t sure if it would come at all. Especially when a group of kids who were such strangers to one another suddenly watched their locker room turn into a melting pot of international players. The Junior Knights have four players from Russia, three from Canada and one from Ukraine on their 20-man squad. “I was, like, scared to talk to them,” said forward Marcus Joseph, a defenseman from Mountain Top who attends Crestwood High School and has played in the Knights’ lower level since he can remember. “In the past, we only had one or two kids from out of the area who only lived an hour-and-a-half away. “This time, they’re from different countries.” How do you get accustomed to those differences? How do you even communicate with Russian players who don’t speak your language when you don’t speak theirs? “Now, they kind of know English,” said defenseman Derek Hamelin, who’s from Quebec. “Before, it was kind of like sign language.” Maybe it’s a sign of the times, but the egos Vasko worried about never really clashed. “It’s all superstars. Where they came from, they’re the best players,” said Vasko, who came from the Ukraine to play minor league hockey in the United States Hockey League in the early 2000s and stuck around Northeastern Pennsylvania to coach the Knights. “No more superstars now. Everybody’s fine. Everybody understands. Now we have a team.” To assist with that point, his assistant Scott Lewis rattled off about eight names trying to identify his top player, because it’s impossible to pick just one. “Every game, it seems like everybody’s doing the scoring,” said Lewis, whose son Gavin is one of the two goaltenders for the Knights. And with each goal, everyone on the Knights is doing the roaring. “That’s the one thing I’ve been surprised about,” Scott Lewis said. “There haven’t really been any cliques.” Instead, the Knights are all about getting their kicks, by sharing cultures developed countries apart. It’s how a team with the potential for division instead finds a link that takes them to the top of its division.

When a game is inside a circle, there is limited wagering. The line could move a few points in either direction, depending on the severity (probable, questionable, doubtful, out) of the injury.

Making sense out of the playoff picture Berwick was faced with a first-and-10 from its 11-yard line on its first play from scrimmage. Quarterback Jared Pierce handed off the ball to senior running back Arlent Mejia, who walked slowly to the line and knelt down. That made it second-and-10 in a game that could decide Berwick’s postseason fate. Yet, coach Gary Campbell felt it necessary to give Mejia, who missed all season with a knee injury, one chance to get on the field. “We lost him in the second scrimmage to a blown out knee right over here,” Campbell said, pointing at the Crispin Field turf. “A non-contact play. It was just one of the things he deserves. He deserves a play in his senior year.” Berwick went on to defeat Coughlin 26-21, but the real victory came on that play. Campbell put aside football – something his detractors should do more often – and focused on the dedication of a player who has been in the program since seventh grade. He’s done the same before. Campbell came to the area from Massachusetts in 2006 to replace coaching legend George Curry. While he hasn’t produced constant winners like Curry, he is a winner in other ways. And Berwick should feel fortunate to have him as coach. DISTRICT UPDATE Here’s how things shape up entering the final week of the regular season. CLASS 4A: Wyoming Valley West (8-1, 1,080 pts.) has clinched a District 2/4-11 Class 4A playoff berth along with D11 teams Nazareth (8-1, 1,150) and Easton (7-2, 1,040). That assures a first-round home game next weekend. The Spartans will be the top seed if they defeat Williamsport and Nazareth loses to Northampton (2-7). That’s highly unlikely to happen. Valley West could fall as far as the fourth seed with a loss to Williamsport, Parkland (7-2,

JOHN ERZAR NOTEBOOK 900) defeating Whitehall (7-2) and all of the following occurring: Allentown Central Catholic, Easton and Harrisburg all winning and Pittston Area and Pleasant Valley both losing. Harrisburg (1-8) plays Bishop McDevitt (7-2), so that scenario is unlikely. Best guess is the Spartans remain the third seed and host the winner of the Bethlehem Freedom vs. Bethlehem Liberty game, or one of the remaining D2/4 teams – Delaware Valley, Scranton or Wallenpaupack. CLASS 3A: Valley View (8-1, 1,210) and Dallas (8-1, 1,200) will finish one-two, depending on what happens this weekend. Crestwood (7-2, 1,010) has locked down the third spot. Berwick (6-3, 730) and Coughlin (5-4, 720) are chasing Scranton Prep (6-3, 810) for the final spot. If Prep defeats West Scranton on Saturday afternoon, then Coughlin is eliminated outright. Berwick is also eliminated even if it defeats Hazleton Area on Friday because the best the Dawgs could do is tie Prep in points. If that’s the case, then the tie would go to the fifth tiebreaker – strength of schedule. Prep’s opponents are 47-42 (.528) and Berwick’s are 37-53 (.411) entering this weekend. CLASS 2A: GAR (8-1, 1,090) and Wyoming Area (6-2, 760) will be the first and second seeds and host games next weekend. Lake-Lehman (5-4, 610) clinches a berth with a victory over Dallas. If Lehman loses, it will need Lakeland (4-5, 600) to lose to Western Wayne (6-3) and Susquehanna (5-3, 560) to lose to Old Forge (7-2) to have a shot. Susquehanna wouldn’t be able to catch Lehman in this scenario, but Lakeland could. It would come down to bonus points, with Lehman having a 20-point lead before they’re added in. If Lehman and Lakeland finish tied for the spot, Lakeland gets it based on the second tiebreaker – record vs. common oppo-

NR means not ranked last week. District 4’s Williamsport is including in the rankings because the team plays in the WVC. 1. (1) Dunmore (9-0) Has a chance to finish the regular season unbeaten for second time in three years. 2. (2) Valley View (8-1) Should have little trouble with winless North Pocono on way to D2-3A playoffs. 3. (3) Dallas (8-1) Could be a tough game with rival Lake-Lehman, which is seeking a playoff berth. 4. (4) Valley West (8-1) Home playoff game next week, but opponent won’t be determined until Saturday. 5. (5) GAR (8-1) Steamrolled Nanticoke last week leading into game with rival Meyers. 6. (6) Crestwood (7-2) In the D2-3A playoffs with only question whether it will be at Dallas or Valley View. 7. (7) Wyoming Area (6-2) Rival Pittston Area could be a tough game despite coming in with two victories. 8. (8) Old Forge (7-2) Has won six of last seven, with only loss by one point to Riverside. 9. (10) Lack. Trail (7-2) Clinched a D2-A playoff spot and now tries to nail down a home playoff game. 10. (15) Scranton (6-3) Has made a great run toward a district playoff berth, but still needs another win. 11. (NR) Scranton Prep (6-3) Incredible, unexpected surge has it on the verge of swiping a D2-3A playoff berth. 12. (13) Berwick (6-3) Has won five in a row, but rival Hazleton Area presents a big challenge. 13. (9) Delaware Valley (6-3) After hot start, three consecutive losses has put the postseason in jeopardy. 14. (11) Wallenpaupack (7-2) Ugly loss to Scranton has severely hurt chances of making the district playoffs. 15. (12) Coughlin (5-4) Will be in the Eastern Conference playoffs if D2-3A bid falls through.

T I M E S L E A D E R P L AY E R O F T H E W E E K Jeremy Freeman RB, Berwick Berwick needed to grind out a victory last Friday and Freeman was just the back to get it done. The 205-pound senior rushed for 123 yards and three touchdowns as the Dawgs defeated Coughlin 26-21 in a crucial game for a District 2 Class 3A playoff berth. His touchdown runs of 7 and 6 yards allowed Berwick to open a 12-point lead about midway through the fourth quarter. Freeman went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark two weeks ago for the first time in his career. He has 1,269 yards and 17 touchdowns entering Friday’s regular-season finale at Hazleton Area.

nents. Lakeland defeated GAR and lost to Lackawanna Trail. Lehman lost to both. Mid Valley (5-4, 680) is also in the mix and is currently third in the standings. CLASS A: The field is set with Dunmore (9-0, 1,370) the top seed. Old Forge (7-2, 1,090), Lackawanna Trail (7-2, 1,070)

and Riverside (6-2, 920) have also clinched, although their seedings could change. E.C. UPDATE Even if Berwick or Coughlin fails to make the District 2 Class 3A playoffs, both have clinched Eastern Conference 3A berths. Lake-Lehman is in position

Col-Montour Vo-Tech (3-5) at Northwest (5-4) 6:15 p.m. today The Coaches: Mark Varner (34-37, 7th year); Northwest’s Carl Majer (27-16, 4th year) Last Meeting: Northwest 25-7 in 2010 Scouting Vo-Tech: Last week was another offensive struggle for the Rams, who were dominated by Shenandoah Valley 19-0. Scoring against better teams has been a problem for Vo-Tech. Of the three victories, two came against Freedom Village, a school for troubled teens in New York, and Carson Long Military, which is considered one of the worst teams in the state. Scouting Northwest: Northwest saw its D2-A playoff hopes end with a 50-17 loss to Wyoming Area while Riverside was knocking off Lakeland. The Rangers played the Warriors fairly well until giving up three third-quarter touchdowns. RB Tony Politz had 75 yards vs. Wyoming Area, but only 3.4 per carry. QB Gunner Majer cooled off after two very good outings throwing the ball. Both will be back on track tonight against a struggling Vo-Tech defense. What To Expect: Northwest should win this one big and then hope things fall in place for an Eastern Conference Class A playoff spot. Vo-Tech just doesn’t have the weapons to match the Rangers score for score.

Northwest can’t make the D2-A playoffs. The Rangers would have clinched an Eastern Conference berth, but Bucktail will forgo the District 4 playoffs for the Eastern Conference. So Bucktail gets the spot out of the E.C. Central Division. Northwest can make the Eastern Conference with a win today against Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech and a loss by Mahanoy Area or Marian Catholic.

for the Chicago Cubs in 2009. Investors will be solicited by the Blackstone Group, McCourt’s investment banker. Dallas Mavericks co-owner Mark Cuban and Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Ron Burkle, who lives in California, could be possibilities. Asian investors have made inquiries. Former agent Dennis Gilbert, a friend of Chicago White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, hopes to put together a group. Former Dodgers Steve Garvey and Orel Hershiser have said they might be interested, as has former general manager Fred Claire. Claire is aligned with former Oakland Athletics President Andy Dolich and former Dodgers batboy Ben Hwang, who brought in the financial backers. Claire, the Dodgers’ GM from 1987-98, assumes the price will be $800 million to $1 billion. “I’ve been working on this venture since early July,� Claire said. “My motivation is to see the Dodgers be what they need to be in the community.� Given the future broadcasting rights at stake and their ownership of regional sports networks in southern California, News Corp. and Time Warner Inc. have been considered possible bidders, as could The Walt Disney Co. But News Corp. is out, an executive said.

MCGLOIN Continued from Page 1B

he pulled the offense out of a game-long funk to lead a winning 80-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes against Illinois on Saturday. “Any successful team has to have a quarterback who’s willing to put in the minds of the players that they’re going to be successful,� McGloin said. “That last drive, all you’re trying to do is stay calm, stay relaxed and just move the chains. “Something like that rubs off








“Contrary to questions I got today, we’re not buying the Dodgers,� News Corp. chief operating officer Chase Carey said on a conference call Wednesday. “Sports rights are probably becoming more complicated. I think it’s just a reality of the marketplace. ... Outside Southern California, we’ve got pretty longterm agreements in place. I feel we’ll be able to navigate Southern California reasonably well.� Real estate companies may join in, given the land the Dodgers own in Chavez Ravine that potentially could be developed. Massive amounts of bank financing will have to be arranged. “And you’ve got plenty of FOBs interested in the Dodgers,� Ganis said, referring to “Friends of Bud� — Commissioner Bud Selig. Blocked from building a ballpark in San Jose, A’s owner Lew Wolff could be injected into a bidding group. Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner — a former San Diego Padres owner — lives in southern California. Milwaukee owner Mark Attanasio also is from California. “I’m very interested in having the sale occur for everybody involved,� said Wolff, a successful L.A. real estate developer. “As far as my interest in purchasing the Dodgers, I don’t have any. I’m interested in getting a new venue for the A’s.� But would Selig, Wolff’s fraternity brother at Wisconsin, ask Wolff to join a bidder? “That would be absurd,� Wolff said. “The Dodgers are going to

go to an auction, and the highest bidder hopefully will revitalize the franchise.� Attanasio also said he doesn’t want to own the Dodgers. “The question was asked of Mark earlier this year and the answer hasn’t changed,� Brewers spokesman Tyler Barnes said. “He is committed to Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Brewers.� Asked whether he had interest, Werner responded in an email: “No, but thanks for asking.� Winners of six World Series titles but none since 1988, the Dodgers have been in various states of turmoil since October 2009, when Frank and Jamie McCourt separated and Frank fired her as the team’s chief executive officer. A California judge invalidated a postnuptial agreement last December, allowing Jamie to seek half ownership of the team. San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was nearly beaten to death outside Dodger Stadium on opening day this season, bringing attention to security cutbacks under McCourt. Selig installed former Texas Rangers President Tom Schieffer as the Dodgers’ financial monitor, ruling he must approve any expense of $5,000 or more. Just days before the team was expected to miss payroll, the Dodgers filed for bankruptcy protection in late June. The move came after Selig refused to approve a 17-year-old agreement between the Dodgers’ and Fox’s Prime Ticket subsidiary that

would have been worth $2 billion or more. MLB feared McCourt would use about half of an intended $385 million cash advance to fund his divorce. Given the disarray, the Dodgers finished third in the NL West at 82-79, had just three sellouts and fell short of 3 million in home attendance in a full season for the first time since 1992. Last month, Frank and Jamie reached a divorce settlement that calls for her to receive about $130 million by April. MLB, which accused McCourt in court papers of “siphoning off more than $180 million� from the team, asked U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross to order a sale of the franchise, and McCourt sought permission to auction his broadcast rights, prompting a lawsuit by Fox. The sides were scheduled for a hearing before Gross starting Nov. 29. A two-sentence statement issued at 12:54 a.m. EDT said MLB and Frank McCourt agreed “to a court supervised process to sell the team and its attendant media rights in a manner designed to realize maximum value for the Dodgers and their owner.� The statement could be construed as saying McCourt is giving up his attempt to sell broadcast rights from 2014 on. Instead of publicly filing papers, lawyers for the parties met in chambers Wednesday with Gross, a person familiar with the session said. The person said MLB may preapprove bidders before the auction.

on players. If the quarterback is calm, relaxed and confident, the team can be ready, calm, relaxed and confident.� There has been plenty of evidence for that this year. Though McGloin won’t be up for any stats-based awards after the season, his impact on this group of Nittany Lions has been undeniable. Penn State is 5-0 in Big Ten play, winning each game by 10 points or less. That’s five straight wins by a combined 34 points. Every one of them was very much in doubt during the fourth quarter. Two of them – Indiana and Illinois – even came down to

the final play. McGloin has been in the game for all but two second-half drives during that stretch. That trend doesn’t figure to change during the Lions’ difficult closing stretch. After getting this week off, they host No. 10 Nebraska and travel to Ohio State and No. 20 Wisconsin. After starting the past two weeks, McGloin is in line to start again when Penn State returns to action against the Cornhuskers on Nov. 12. With how convoluted the quarterback situation has been up to this point, that could be subject to change. For much of

the season, McGloin was as much in the dark as the fans. But according to McGloin, things have improved in recent weeks. “Coach Joe and (quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno) have been communicating with us a lot more,� McGloin said. “Jay’s been more involved in telling the quarterbacks what’s going on. Early on, it was understood Rob would go first, I’d go second. “Now as the season goes on, Jay realizes he needs to be more clear about things and more clear with the gameplan. They’ve really come a long way in talking about the quarterback situation.�

EAGLES Continued from Page 1B

Eagles who were flat-out frightening. But through it all, in a Super Bowl-or-bust year where the criticism kept piling on, Reid took the blame for the dismal 1-4 start. Of course, that didn’t stop disappointed fans and fickle media from calling for Reid to be fired. Never mind that he’s the winningest coach in franchise history and his resume includes nine playoff appearances, six division titles and one conference championship in his first 12 seasons. The Eagles, after all, were built to win it all now. They uncharacteristically spent wildly in the lockout-shortened offseason and added six players who’ve been to Pro Bowls. Everyone in the organization from top to bottom made it clear nothing less than winning the Super Bowl would be a success this year. So, someone had to be held responsible for a four-game losing streak that seemingly dashed the Dream Team’s grandiose expectations. And Reid, as always, is a popular target. But all that talk seems like nonsense now. It took just two wins, including a convincing 34-7 victory over the Cowboys in front of a national audience Sunday night, to change the outlook in Philadelphia. Now the Eagles (3-4) are right back in the chase in the NFC East. They trail the New York Giants (5-2) and are tied with the two teams they beat in consecutive games: Washington and Dallas. The Giants hardly look like a first-place team, and they have a difficult schedule upcoming. The Redskins are really struggling and the Cowboys were awful in Philadelphia. That leaves the Eagles. They are again being widely considered the favorite to finish on top in the division. “We still have a lot of work to do,� quarterback Michael Vick said. Vick owes his career rejuvenation to Reid, so it’s no surprise that he jumped to his defense

when the coach was under heavy criticism. “Coach is very confident, very smart, and I think he puts us in position to win the game,� Vick said before the Eagles notched their second win. “We’ll stand behind him until the end. That’s our coach, and you know his mindset right now is go out and be the best team that we can be and keep playing hard, and that’s what we’re going to do for him.� Reid had plenty of support in the locker room from veteran players to rookies. He’s always been popular among his guys and shows them a far different side than he portrays in front of cameras and tape recorders. When a fan hung a large sign outside the team’s practice facility saying Reid should go, players took action. Center Jason Kelce and guard Evan Mathis confronted the fan and asked for the sign to be removed. The linemen’s actions became a hot topic on talk radio. Many people criticized the players, saying fans have the right to express their opinion any way they choose. “I respect the fans. We have very passionate, very loyal fans,� Kelce said. “I’m fully in favor of them voicing their opinion. If you want to do it in a blog or call in a radio show, that’s fine. You’re entitled to your own opinion. Just don’t bring it to our front door. We’re trying to improve as a team. Calling for the coach’s head right in front of us isn’t going to help us get better.� Mathis had a simple explanation. “We did not want to have a negative environment,� he said. Reid doesn’t let criticism bother him. He’s been in Philadelphia too long and knows how to survive intense scrutiny. The speculation about his job being in jeopardy was mostly talk-show fodder. Reid is under contract through the 2013 season, and he has an excellent relationship with owner Jeffrey Lurie and president Joe Banner. Still, the Eagles, who meet the Bears (4-3) at home on Monday, haven’t won an NFL title since 1960. Unless they win a Super Bowl under Reid, people won’t be satisfied.

Street hoping to find scoring touch again

Continued from Page 1B

and a bitter memory. Richardson missed the next two games and wasn’t particularly effective in the final two behind Mark Ingram. The nation’s No. 3 run defense will greet him on Saturday night at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and Richardson has an idea of what to expect after last year’s run-in. “That’s always in the back of my head, these guys took me out,” he said. “And I had to sit out two more games after that. It’s in my head already that I know they’re going to try to come right at me and they’re going to try to take me down.” The Tigers have already withstood one of college football’s best running backs, holding Oregon’s LaMichael James to 54 yards on 18 carries in the opener. Both are Heisman candidates and prolific runners, but have decidedly different styles. Richardson’s 989 rushing yards leads the league and his 18 total touchdowns — including one receiving — puts him tied for second nationally in scoring. Only one SEC quarterback, Georgia’s Aaron Murray (18), has more TDs passing than Richardson has rushing. LSU coach Les Miles singles out Richardson’s 76-yard run against Mississippi when he froze a defender near the end zone with a stutter step. “Trent Richardson is not only fast, but he’s also strong,” Miles said. “He has lined up against some great teams. He is always ready to compete. I saw his move against Ole Miss. It would have thrown my hip out of joint.” Richardson has averaged 139.3 yards in three games against Top 25 teams this season and had a school record-tying string of six consecutive 100-yard efforts snapped by Tennessee in the last outing. Ingram demonstrated the kind of impact a big performance in a game like this can have during his 2009 Heisman season. Ingram ran for113yardsandthreetouchdowns and had an electric 69-yard catch against Florida in the SEC championship game and became Alabama’s first winner of the coveted award. Richardson deflects talk that this game might become another Heisman stage.


Tettleton, Harden lead Ohio past Temple ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — Tyler Tettleton threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Donte Foster with 1:41 left, and Donte Harden ran for 184 yards and scored twice in Ohio’s 35-31 victory over Temple on Wednesday night. Ohio (6-3, 3-2 Mid-American) took the lead from Temple (5-4, 3-3) in the conference East Division standings and became bowl eligible for the third straight year. Tettleton was 15 of 24 for 258 yards and three touchdowns and scored on a 5-yard run. LaVon Brazill had seven catches for 165 yards, and Harden had two receptions for 75 yards.



Philadelphia defenseman Braydon Coburn (top) gets up bloodied from a fight with Sabres blueliner Mike Weber at the end of the second period on Wednesday in Buffalo , N.Y.

Flyers chase Miller early, top Sabres The Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Ilya Bryzgalov made 29 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers scored three times in the first period to chase All-Star goalie Ryan Miller in a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. It was the first meeting between the teams since the Flyers eliminated the Sabres in seven games during their Eastern Conference quarterfinal last season. Sean Couturier, James van Riemsdyk and Scott Hartnell scored for the Flyers, who won their second straight after losing four of five. Luke Adam had a goal and an assist and Andrej Sekera also scored for the Sabres, who have lost four of five. They fell to 1-4-0 in Buffalo.

Miller was pulled after Hartnell made it 3-0 just 6:23 into the game. Miller finished with eight saves before being lifted for backup Jhonas Enroth, who had 15 saves in relief. Bryzgalov helped preserve the win with a pair of nifty saves on Sabres leading scorer Thomas Vanek over the final 16 seconds. The Flyers were without center Danny Briere for the second straight game because of an upper-body injury. Vanek, meanwhile, missed almost 20 minutes after leaving midway through the second period. He skated directly to the dressing room after a scrum in front of the Flyers net while Buffalo was on a power play, but returned with 12 minutes to go in the third. On his first shift back he assisted on Adam’s goal.

Maple Leafs 5, Devils 3 NEWARK, N.J. — Joffrey Lupul had three goals in a wild second period, his first hat trick in almost four years, to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs past the New Jersey Devils 5-3 on Wednesday night. Lupul scored three times in a span of 7:22 against Martin Brodeur, who returned to the ice after missing six games with a bruised right shoulder. Joey Crabb and Mihkail Grabovski also had goals for the Maple Leafs. The last time Lupul scored three goals in a game was Dec. 12, 2007, when he had six points for the Philadelphia Flyers against Pittsburgh. He scored four goals in a Western Conference playoff game for Anaheim on May 10, 2006.


Misericordia soccer headed to Freedom finals The Times Leader staff

DALLAS — Laura Roney had a goal and an assist as the Misericordia women’s soccer team broke open a scoreless game with three second-half goals, beating FDU-Florham 3-0 in the Freedom Conference semifinals on Wednesday. Alyssa Mocion and Megan Lannigan scored the other goals for the Cougars (13-3-2), who extended their unbeaten streak to 11 games and their wining streak to nine. Jess Anderson made one save in goal for the shutout. Top-seeded Misericordia will host No. 2 Eastern in the conference championship match title at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Eastern 3, Wilkes 1

The host Eagles rallied from a 1-0 halftime deficit to eliminate the Lady Colonels in the Freedom Conference semifinals. Katy Fissel gave third-seeded Wilkes the lead off a feed from Lyndsay Ellis midway through the first half. But Eastern tied it up early in the second and scored the winner on a direct kick from 18 yards out. Sam Lindo made five saves for the Lady Colonels, who finished the season 8-6-3.


Eastern 2, King’s 1

The Lady Monarchs season ended in the Freedom Conference semifinals after being held

scoreless into the final minute. Second-seeded Eastern scored both goals in the second half and kept No. 3 King’s (12-6) off the board until just 31 seconds left in the contest when Megan Mundy converted off of a penalty corner. Megan Withrow made three saves in goal for King’s.

WILKES-BARRE — During a 10-game stretch last season, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins forward Ben Street scored nine goals and established himself as a legitimate goal scorer in the AHL. One month into the 2011-12 season, Street is looking to re-establish his goal-scoring touch. In six games, Street has yet to find the back of the net while registering two assists in the process. Foraplayerwhoscored12goals in 36 games last season as a rookie, the drought is frustrating. “With any goal-scorer when the pucks are going in, your confidence goes through the roof,” Street said. “When they’re not, you have to remind yourself that you’re a goal-scorer. It’s a little tougher on your confidence when the pucks aren’t going in.” While the goals may not be there yet, other parts of Street’s game are just fine, according to coach John Hynes. “He’s in one of those situations where he’s doing a lot of things right and the puck’s just not going in,” Hynes said. “Over the course oftime,aplayerthatplayswithhis work ethic, detail and skill, the pucks are going to go in the net.” This weekend would be a good time for that to happen. Winger


• Ryan Craig, who hasn’t played since suffering an injury on Oct. 14, returned to practice on Wednesday wearing a red nocontact jersey. Hynes said Craig won’t play this weekend but his return is close. • With Walker still out and his return unknown, Hynes tried out a number of different line combinations in practice. Bryan Lerg centered Jason Williams and Colin McDonald for a bit. Brian Gibbons also played between Eric Tangradi and Niko Dimitrakos. • Defenseman Boris Valabik, who was signed by Pittsburgh in the summer but has yet to play because of a knee injury, cleared waivers and was expected to join Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Wednesday afternoon, Hynes said.

Geoff Walker has yet to practice this week after suffering an injury over the weekend. Walker leads the Penguins with three power play goals, and if he’s unable to play this weekend, it’s a void that Street could fill. “Part of my role is to chip in offensively and I’d like to get that going a bit more,” Street said. Getting going is the key for Street, who has missed three gamesthisseasonduetoaninjury. He admitted that he is still working off the rust from missing time.

Quade out in Chicago after 1 year

Uncle Mo healthy again for Classic

Cubs’ overhaul continues as team president Theo Epstein wants a clean slate for the next manager. By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer

By BETH HARRIS AP Racing Writer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Uncle Mo was supposed to return to Churchill Downs for the Breeders’ Cup as a conquering hero. He was the buzz horse coming into the Kentucky Derby, having won the first four races of his career and earning top 2-year-old honors. But he never made it to the starting gate. Uncle Mo was knocked out on Derby eve by a serious liver disease. When owner Mike Repole left Louisville in May, he didn’t know if he would ever see his best horse again. The colt was sidelined for four months because of the illness, leaving Repole, trainer Todd Pletcher and others around Uncle Mo to wonder if it was a race he could win. Now he appears back on his game. Uncle Mo got nosed out for the win in the King’s Bishop in August, leaving Repole bummed out.

CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade was fired Wednesday in the first major move by Theo Epstein since becoming the team’s president of baseball operations. Epstein, who was introduced in his new position last week, said Quade would not return after traveling to Florida to tell him in person. He called Quade an “outstanding baseball guy,” but it was time for a change. Quade got the job after a 37-game audition at the end of the 2010 season, replacing Lou Piniella on an interim basis. The 150 Special Notices Cubs went 24-13 and Quade he was chosen over Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg for the job last season. The Cubs went out and stumbled through another disappointing year, finishing fifth in the NL Central with a 7191 record that extended their infamous World Series championship drought to 103 years.

the BC Juvenile and Stay Thirsty finished fifth, giving Repole a huge taste of success in his first trip to thoroughbred racing’s richest two days. “He went into the winter with about as much buzz as you can have with a 2-yearold,” Pletcher said of Uncle Mo. “He started off the year well, unfortunately, the liver infection cost us a big chunk of the spring and summer. But we’re back in excellent shape now.” Initially, Uncle Mo was treated for a gastrointestinal infection, but he didn’t respond before the Derby, in which he was the second favorite, and was scratched the day before the race. He wasn’t eating right, he didn’t look good and he began dropping 200 pounds. Veterinarians were puzzled when biopsies of his stomach, liver and lymph nodes didn’t immediately produce answers and put his life in jeopardy. His case reminded them of filly Devil May Care, who ran in the 2010 Derby and was trained by Pletcher.

“I was down because I’ve been on such an emotional ride with this horse,” he said Wednesday. “I wanted that win so bad for Uncle Mo. That was a tough loss.” The colt bounced back to win the Kelso Handicap by three lengths in his last start, a race Repole called Uncle Mo’s redemption. He’s the 5-2 early favorite for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Saturday even though he’s never run11-4 miles and faces challengers like filly Havre de Grace, Flat Out and European import So You Think. “This is Mo’s Kentucky Derby,” Repole said. “Uncle Mo is the most talented horse in the race. There’s no doubt in my mind.” He also owns another contender in the 12-horse field — Belmont runner-up Stay Thirsty at 12-1. “They’re both going to run big races,” Repole said. They sure did last year. Uncle Mo won

She became sick and had elevated liver enzymes (like Uncle Mo) before being diagnosed with a non-contagious form of hepatitis. She died of cancer in May. “We were all concerned that Uncle Mo was going down that path,” said Repole, who was told there was a 25 percent chance that his colt had cancer. “When a 1,250-pound animal is hurting internally, he can’t say, ‘Hey Mommy, my tummy hurts.’ It’s hard to figure out what it is.” Repole poured money into finding out what was wrong. “To me, he’s a family member,” said the 42-year-old fast-talking Queens, N.Y., native who got rich selling his Vitaminwater company to Coca-Cola. The answer came in June, when Uncle Mo was diagnosed with cholangiohepatitis, a rare liver disease that causes severe inflammation of the bile passages and liver that can sometimes be fatal. Repole was relieved to finally learn what was wrong with the star of his 80horse stable.

Railroads experience boom time

Pa. slot revenue slips The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is blaming Saturday’s snowstorm for a slight decline in October slot machine revenue compared to October 2010. The state’s 10 casinos recorded $197.2 million in slot revenue in October, compared to $197.5 million a year ago, when 1.4 percent more machines were in operation. Pennsylvania claimed $107.4 million in taxes from slot play in the month. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs bucked the downtrend, with slot revenue increasing 2.6 percent to $19.6 million. Mount Airy Casino Resort was the lowest-performing gaming hall in the state, with $12 million in slot revenue, a decline of 3.7 percent from October 2010.

Highway congestion and fuel costs have shippers looking to rails. By CURTIS TATE McClatchy Newspapers

HARRISBURG — It’s a Sunday afternoon and there’s a massive traffic jam on a bridge that crosses the wide Susquehanna River, with truck trailers and containers on both sides waiting to get to their final destinations in the densely populated Northeast. But this gridlock isn’t occurring on a highway. Rather, it’s on the century-old, stonearch bridge that carries the trains of Norfolk Southern Railway. Half a century ago, most of those trains would have carried coal, ore and manufactured goods stuffed into old-fashioned boxcars. Many still do. But the “boxcars” belong to trucking and shipping companies, such as UPS, J.B. Hunt and Schneider International, filled with consumer products bound for the shelves of big-box stores such as Walmart, Target and Home Depot. Trucking is freight rail’s biggest competitor and its biggest customer. In 2003, putting truck trailers and containers on flatcars, called intermodal service, overtook coal as the leading source of revenue for the freight rail industry. Transportation experts say truckers are losing their edge because of highway congestion, higher fuel costs, driver shortages and pending safety regulations. Meantime, railroads have made a huge bet on intermodal service, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on new facilities and upgraded tracks to handle the increasing traffic volume.

Kraft profits up strongly Kraft Foods Inc.’s third-quarter profit jumped 22 percent as higher prices helped offset increased costs for the food maker. The company reported Wednesday that it earned $922 million for the quarter that ended Sept. 30. That’s up from $754 million last year. Kraft’s revenue rose nearly 12 percent to $13.23 billion. Kraft raised its full-year outlook for both sales and profits. The Northfield, Ill.-based company that employs about 700 at its facility in Hanover Township plans to split its business into two publicly traded companies by the end of next year.

Good, healthy jobs By MATT HUGHES

WILKES-BARRE – With the unemployment rate in Luzerne County hovering near 10 percent, area education institutions are reaching out with training programs in high-growth sectors for workers who have lost jobs. . That effort was on display Wednesday at the Education and Health Career Fair hosted by the Luzerne/ Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board and PA CareerLink at CareerLink’s Wilkes-Barre office.

Metro jobless rates fall The Labor Department said Wednesday that unemployment rates fell in 280 large metro areas from August to September. They rose in 61 and were unchanged in 31. That’s the largest number of cities to see a decline since April. State College reported the biggest drop in unemployment in September, to 5.1 percent from 6.5 percent in August. The rate in the Scranton/WilkesBarre area fell slightly to 9.7 percent, still the highest in Pennsylvania.

You’re being watched. And not by Big Brother. When you’re browsing the Internet, take a close look at the websites you’re visiting. More specifically, look at the ads. Notice anything? After you visit a few websites, you’ll notice something startling – the ads are following you around. And you might notice something else; some of those ads are from sites that you just visited. It’s not a coincidence. You’ve been branded. You’re a victim of what’s known as “retargeting” – when you visit a web-

where we’re headed. From the standpoint of a business owner, it’s definitely a positive. They can now gather all sorts of information on customers that was never before available. And once someone visits a website, all other websites can be like flashing billboards for the business’ products. That brings up a final point. The Internet is not a static place, where everyone sees the same information. To test that, do a Google search for something. Ask a friend to do the same thing on his or her computer. I can almost guarantee the top 10 results will be different, or at least in a different order.

I’m livin’ on easy street this week not having to deal with any complicated weather patterns, making the job of predicting the weather simple and straight forward. Today, we are in for a relatively warm afternoon by November standards with readings nearly 10 degrees above normal. Later tonight, the wind will shift to the north and this will direct a very dry but colder air mass our way for the weekend. After some cloudiness tonight, skies will clear Friday and remain that way into Sunday. The wind will stay light along with sunshine by day and moonlight at night. Warmer days next week will lead to some rain by Wednesday.

“You didn’t leave the house without a HAT and GLOVES if you were a LADY.” Sandra Skies-Ludwig, Luzerne County Historical Society volunteer


Style: Cloche Made by: Collection Eighteen Sold at: Macy’s, $48 This woman’s hat, popular in the ‘20s and making a comeback, can be found in nearly every hat department. The cloche (the French word for ‘bell’ – notice the bell shape) is tight and worn low. Many are embellished with flowers or ribbons.

Style: Fedora Made by: American Rag Sold at: Macy’s, $19.50 The fedora may be the most common men’s hat next to a ball cap. Not to be confused with a wider Panama hat, these are narrowly creased lengthwise and pinched in front on the sides. The crease can be diamond- or teardrop-shaped. Though often a solid color, plaids are popular.


Historical Society curator Mary Ruth Burke holds a Panama hat, while volunteer Sandra Skies-Ludwig, in front, shows a beaver-pelt top hat.

Hat couture THEN AND NOW

Style: Wide-brimmed floppy Made by: Collection Eighteen Sold at: Macy’s, $42 This style of hat is often seen in early May, around Kentucky Derby time, when ‘bigger is better.’ It’s ideal when the risk of sunburn is high. The extra wide brim protects the face from harmful rays.

Colonel Ricketts wore this hat during the Civil War.

protect their modesty at the beach in the olden days.

This West Point parade hat would have been worn on dress occasions.

This vintage 1930s cap from the Shickshinny Volunteer Fire Co. sports a tiny firetruck medallion on the brim.

“That was what you wore with one of those costumes you can’t even imagine wearing,” said Luzerne County Historical Society volunteer Sandra Skies-Ludwig, who arranged dozens of samples of vintage headgear into a “Mad About Hats” exhibit at the society’s museum in downtown WilkesBarre. Covering the head was considered important decades ago, SkiesLudwig said, especially for the upper-class women who wanted to preserve their fair complexions to show they didn’t have to work in the sun. “You didn’t leave the house without a hat and gloves if you were a lady,” she said. “Doesn’t that look like something

a Jane Austen character would wear?” museum curator Mary Ruth Burke asked, pointing out a poke bonnet with a projecting front brim. Another group of hats, consisting of pieces of decorated fabric and ribbons meant to tie under the chin, spoke to another period novel. “They remind me of the scene in

‘Gone With the Wind’ where Rhett gives Scarlett a hat and she puts it on backward,” Skies-Ludwig said. The exhibit contains cloche hats from the 1920s, mourning hats trimmed with black ostrich feathers and a festive pink hat, circa 1911, crafted from silk flowers as well as men’s styles – the Homburg, the Stetson, the Panama and even the West Point parade hat. Colonel Robert Bruce Ricketts’ Civil War hat is on display, as is a bride’s wreath of wax blossoms, Boy Scout and Girl Scout hats of the past and some old-time hat pins, each several inches long, that look as if they could do some damage. “Don’t mess with a Victorian woman,” Burke said with a chuckle. “She was armed and dangerous.”

A little something on top is still stylish By SARA POKORNY


Ciaran Burke, 14, has been wearing fedoras like this since fourth grade. This particular cap belonged to his grandfather, James Kelly.

Ciaran Burke loves 1930s and ’40s styles, an aspect of his personality evident in the slate-gray fedora that sits atop his head daily. Burke, of Wilkes-Barre, is no man of a certain age who’s been wearing hats all his life. He’s just a 14-year-old who simply can’t get enough of fashionable headwear. And he isn’t alone. Various hat styles from throughout history top many a modern head, from wide-brimmed to driver’s caps.

We can thank the Royal Wedding and the likes of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry for putting the accessory at the forefront of style once more. Burke sticks strictly to fedoras. The cap he now wears belonged to his grandfather, James Kelly, but he started donning headwear in fourth grade, when he sported a piece that belonged to his great-grandfather. He even has an alternate hat for warm months, when hot felt just won’t do. He switches off with a straw fedora and puts the feathers that stick out of the brim of the felt

hat into the band of the straw version. It’s not just about the style for Burke; etiquette also comes into play. “I try not to wear it indoors,” he said. “You’re also not supposed to put it down on tables.” Area women also are sporting hats everywhere you look. Monica Leon, 48, of Wilkes-Barre began her love affair with hats when she was younger and required to wear one to church. From there she See FOREFRONT, Page 2C

Style: Wide brim Made by: Mossimo Sold at: Target, $16.99 This falls between a widebrimmed floppy and a cloche. It’s more toned down than a floppy hat and has the simple shape of a cloche with extra brim. Flowers or bows embellish many.

Style: Flat, or driver’s Made by: American Rag Sold at: Macy’s, $19.50 These flat caps, often wool or tweed, are rounded with a small, stiff-front brim. The style is associated with newsboys of old who sold papers at a corner stand but is now popular in punk and hiphop subcultures.

Style: Military Made by: Puma Sold at: Lids, $21.99 Military hats are casual and often adjustable with a boxy shape. The bill is much shorter than that of a baseball cap.

colored cloche and widebrimmed hats in winter. “When you’re walking around outside all you see is what you’ve got on as far as outerwear goes,” she said. “You don’t see jewelry or the clothes underneath the coat. And to look at winter coat after winter coat can be boring, so why not make it one big outfit? It’s an alwayschanging thing, too, because you can add so many different accessories to a hat.”

found it didn’t have to be a oncein-a-while style. “By the time I was in my 20s I realized how much a hat could bring to an outfit,” she said. Leon most often wears a black women’s newsboy-style cap when the weather turns cold and can be found in floppy widebrimmed hats and Panama caps in summer. These are her favorite because she finds them most versatile. “You can throw a pin or a scarf on them and completely change the look.” That’s exactly why Tori Kopicki, 35, of Dallas sticks to solid-

The Army ofTwo

Written by Betty Miles • Illustrated by Joan Sandin guns and picked up their oars. “They are calling the boats back to the ship!” Becky said. “Play!” YANKEE DOODLE! they played. The boats were turning. The sailors bent over their oars. The boats jumped through the water, heading toward the ship. “They are rowing away!” said Abby. YANKEE DOODLE! they played again. The boats reached the ship. One after the other, the sailors stood up, took hold of ropes and pulled themselves up the side of the ship to the deck. Then they pulled the boats up after them. YANKEE DOODLE! they played together. Look!” Abby pointed. Now a sailor with a knife was cutting the rope that held the anchor. “They are cutting off the anchor without waiting to pull it up!” Becky said. “They want to get away fast!” The sailor jumped back as the rope flew up out of his hands. “The ship is turning!” Abby said. BOOOOM! “Oh!” she cried. Becky pulled her to the ground. There was another rush of air and then a splash as the second cannonball hit the water. Abby started to get up, but Becky pulled her down. “Lie still!” she said. They lay on the ground for a long time, but there were no more shots. Becky stood up slowly and pushed a branch away. “Abby, it is all right,” she said, looking out. “They will not fire again.” Abby looked, too. The ship was sailing away. “The British have turned back,” Abby said. “Oh, Becky, we made them go!” They were safe! Now Abby could not keep from crying “Play!” And the girls played “Yankee Doodle” one more time as the British ship sailed out to sea.

STORY SO FAR: Abby and Becky have gone to the woods with a fife and a cooking pot, to make the British think they are an army!

CHAPTER SIX The Army in the Woods


(To be continued Tuesday, Nov. 8) almost cried. But she took a breath and blew again. This time, she played clear and strong. YANKEE DOODLE WENT TO TOWN! The notes filled the air. Abby could almost believe that she and Becky were an army! If only the British sailors would think so! They had come to the edge of the woods. Bright water came shining through the leaves. The first small boat was so close that Abby could see the face of the sailor at the front. He had a brown beard like Father’s. It was strange

to think that these British sailors might be fathers, too, with girls of their own at home— There was a tremendous BOOM and a great splash. “The cannon!” Becky cried. Abby looked at the ship. The cannon was pointing at the shore. Sailors were running across the deck, climbing the masts, pulling the ropes that held the sails. At the front of the deck, a sailor waved his arms at the boats in the water. In the boats, the sailors threw down their

he first sounds were a surprise. The woods had been so still before! Now the sounds banged and tooted around the trees and out over the water. The girls looked at each other. They were playing! Becky hit the pot again. Abby blew the fife. Yankee Doodle went to— TOWWWN! They looked out through the leaves. “They hear us!” Abby said. The sailors in the boats had put up their oars and stopped rowing. They were looking at the woods. On the ship, sailors called to each other and pointed to shore. A few of them were pushing something to the front of the deck. “They are bringing out a cannon!” Becky cried. A cannon! Abby stepped back quickly. Did the sailors really think they were an army? “Keep playing!” Becky said. She banged on the pot with her wooden spoons. Bang, BANG! Bang, BANG! Bang, bang, BANG! Abby took a breath and blew as hard as she could. Yankee Doodle went to town, Yankee Doodle went to town—She stopped suddenly. The sailors in the boats had picked up their guns! Abby wanted to run away. But Becky said, “We must go closer, so they think we are marching to meet them.” Abby wanted to cry out “No!” But she stumbled on after Becky. It was hard to keep going, with so many branches in the way. It was hard to find the breath to play the fife. And it was very hard to walk closer to the edge of the woods, and to the water, and the British sailors with their guns. Suddenly, Becky began banging on the trees! She hit a tree and then the pot and then another tree. Each tree sounded different. She was making the sound of many drums! Becky was so brave! Abby tried to blow harder on her fife, but only a sharp squeak came out. She could not even play right! She

Childhood piano lessons: same song, second verse from readers Dear Abby: I had to respond to the letter from “Discordant Family” (Sept. 1). I agree with you that the children should not be forced to play piano. However, let me offer an alternative. Many young pianists quit because practicing is such a solitary chore. I’d recommend finding the kids a community music program they would enjoy. Perhaps their friends are involved with a chamber or duet group, or a music camp. Set the completion of the group project as a goal and allow them to move on (if they still want to) once they’ve reached that goal rather than quit on the spot. I, too, wanted to quit piano les-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE sons at 13, but my mother insisted I persist until age 16. Then I joined my high school’s theater program as its pianist. Being part of community music-making is standard for most musicians, but it’s rare for young pianists. They develop other skills, and the emphasis on practice and perfection is greatly reduced when the focus shifts to working well in a group. Since “Discordant” is so set on music for her kids, I hope she’ll consider this option, but also identify the aspects of piano playing her kids dislike and attempt to reduce or remove


them. Switching from classical to pop music or starting a band with their friends are other possibilities. I’m 26 now and have made a career as a collaborative pianist for musical theater, operas, choirs and soloist accompaniment. It’s given me an opportunity to travel, meet Broadway actors, play in rock bands, learn language skills — and more! — Happy Pianist in Austin Dear Pianist: Thank you for your helpful suggestions. Forcing children to do something they hate seems, to me, counterproductive when there are so many constructive things they could be doing. My readers comment: Dear Abby: Each child is unique and needs individual consideration.


Because the 13-year-old wants to stop playing the piano is no reason for the 11- and 5-year-old to quit, too. How about talking it over with the piano teacher? Maybe it’s time for a new approach. The teen could learn to play jazz piano or switch to a different instrument, such as the guitar. Making music part of life is a joy when it is approached in the right spirit. — Piano Teacher Who Has Seen And Heard It All Dear Abby: “Discordant” said she has never met anyone who was glad about having stopped piano lessons. Well, one of the happiest days of my life was when I quit. I read music and hit the keys in order, but I have no sense of timing. Practice did NOT

make perfect. — Freed From the Torture Dear Abby: I was forced to take piano lessons. At age 13, I begged to quit. My parents made a compromise. Lessons only during the school year, summers off. After a poor start, I began to enjoy the lessons, ended up studying piano for 18 years and turned pro. — Peggy in Las Vegas To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are certain things you wish you could tell a loved one, but you’re reasonably sure that he or she wouldn’t be receptive to the message. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To observe instances of beauty without another person is practically torture for you. You want to share! You need to share! And share you will. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The spider is a fine hunter. You’re not afraid of this creature as long as the spider in question doesn’t encroach on your territory. You will see the arachnid today — a sign that your own hunt will be fruitful. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are socially more advanced than most and will be the grease that allows a group of people to function well together. You’ll pick up on people’s cues and behave as they would prefer, as long as it’s also what you want to do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll get the chance to express your artistry. New materials will be made available to you. Also, your ideas about how things should look will be taken seriously. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t cast a wide net to catch every fish that comes within a mile of you. That will be too much trouble, and you have no use for so many random fish. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your potential is innate, and you’re just the one to nurture it and bring it into reality. You’ll get good on your own by practicing what you like to do in a way that delights you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll quietly guard your privacy. You might say you’re in one of your “complicated” moods, which to the rest of the world just looks like a self-assured, soft-spoken and gracious style of interacting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The quality of your work depends on the information you gather before you begin. You’ll do your research and come to an unexpected conclusion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s excitement brewing around you, and you can feel your body responding to the environment. It will be hard to tell whether this is good stress or bad stress. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you dare to make the first move, you will join forces with like-minded individuals. You’ll find fun and profit in helping the people in your neighborhood or town. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll feel like you have something to prove today, but you’re not trying to prove it to anyone else. This is all about what you think of you. Get busy, strive for greatness, and work at it all day long. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 3). Your mental wheels spin with big ideas and high hopes. This optimism draws to you the best and finest support and resources available. Relationships are tinged with a new ease, and you’ll flow with the changing times, even when those changes seem contradictory to what you’ve learned in past years. Leo and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 10, 31, 16 and 50.

PUBLIC NOTICE Federal Emergency Management Agency Draft Environmental Assessment Highlands Temporary Community Housing Site Tunkhannock Township, Wyoming County, PA The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and FEMA’s implementing regulations. The Draft EA has been prepared for a proposed temporary community housing site for residents displaced by flooding in Wyoming County. Section 408 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act authorizes FEMA to provide emergency and temporary housing for eligible disaster victims whose homes are uninhabitable or destroyed as a result of a declared disaster event (FEMA-4030-DRPA). From September 3, 2011 through September 15, 2011, heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Lee caused flooding in eastern and central Pennsylvania. Rainfall for this period ranged from 5.5 to 15 inches in a 48-hour period. Major rivers and their tributaries overflowed their banks inundating hundreds of communities in the Susquehanna and Delaware River watersheds for nearly a week. Direct housing assistance includes the provision of a manufactured housing unit on an available private, commercial park or community site location. Most of this demand will be met by placing a mobile home on an applicant’s private site if the site is located outside a floodplain, or providing a mobile home on an available pad leased in a commercial park. However, once these options are exhausted, FEMA estimates many applicants will still require housing, resulting in the need to develop a temporary (up to 18 months) community housing site. The Draft EA evaluates project alternatives and compliance with applicable environmental laws and Executive Orders #11990 (Protection of Wetlands), #11988 (Floodplain Management), and #12898 (Environmental Justice). The proposed temporary community housing site is approximately 8 acres in size, and is currently an agricultural field located on Wellwood Drive (east of Jeffstone Drive), Tunkhannock Township, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania (Latitude 41.5145, Longitude -75.9340). Due to the emergency nature of this action, the public comment period will be brief, from November 1, 2011 to November 3, 2011. The Draft EA is available for public review at the Disaster Recovery Center (DRC), Tunkhannock Area Administration (Gymnasium), 41 Philadelphia Avenue, Tunkhannock, PA 18657. The DRC hours are 10:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Friday and 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday. Comments on the Draft EA will not be taken at the DRC, however. The Draft EA is also available on FEMA’s website at: ocuments/index.shtm under Region III. Comments on the Draft EA can be faxed to 717-651-4586. Verbal comments can be provided by calling 717-671-3617 or emailed to: If no substantive comments are received relative to the proposed action’s environmental effects, the Draft EA will become final and a Finding of No Significant Impa (FONSI) will be issued for the project.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the public of its intent to reimburse eligible applicants for eligible costs to repair and/or replace facilities damaged by Hurricane Irene (FEMA-4025-DR-PA) occurring from August 26-30, 2011 and Tropical Storm Lee (FEMA-4030-DR-PA) occurring from September 3 - 15, 2011. This notice applies to the Public Assistance (PA), Individual Assistance (IA), and Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP) programs implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 5121-5206. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA4025-DR-PA) signed by the President on September 11, 2011, the following counties have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and eligible for both IA and PA: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Susquehanna, and Wyoming. The following counties are eligible for PA only: Pike, Susquehanna and Wayne. Additional counties may be designated at a later date. All counties in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are eligible for HMGP. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA4030-DR-PA) signed by the President on September 11, 2011, the following counties have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and eligible for both IA and PA: Berks, Bradford, Bucks, Columbia, Dauphin, Huntingdon, Lancaster, Lebanon, Luzerne, Lycoming, Montgomery, Montour, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, Snyder, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Union, Wyoming, and York. The following counties are eligible for IA only: Adams, Chester, Cumberland, Delaware, Monroe, Northampton and Philadelphia. The following counties are eligible for PA only: Bedford, Juniata, Tioga and Wayne. Additional counties may be designated at a later date. All counties in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are eligible for HMGP. This public notice concerns activities that may affect historic properties, activities that are located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-year floodplain, and critical actions within the 500-year floodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property, floodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to flood damage. Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 require that all federal actions in or affecting the floodplain or wetlands be reviewed for opportunities to relocate, and evaluated for social, economic, historical, environmental, legal and safety considerations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review to determine what measures can be taken to minimize future damages. The public is invited to participate in the process of identifying alternatives and analyzing their impacts. FEMA has determined that for certain types of facilities there are normally no alternatives to restoration in the floodplain/wetland. These are facilities that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMA’s estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost to replace the entire facility, and is less than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a floodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major structural damage in a previous Presidentially declared flooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospital, generating plant, emergency operations center, or a facility that contains dangerous materials). FEMA intends to provide assistance for the restoration of these facilities to their predisaster condition, except that certain measures to mitigate the effects of future flooding or other hazards may be included in the work. For example, a bridge or culvert restoration may include a larger waterway opening to decrease the risk of future washouts. For routine activities, this will be the only public notice provided. Other activities and those involving facilities that do not meet the four criteria are required to undergo more detailed review, including study of alternate locations. Subsequent public notices regarding such projects will be published if necessary, as more specific information becomes available. In many cases, an applicant may have started facility restoration before federal involvement. Even if the facility must undergo detailed review and analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eligible restoration at the original location if the facility is functionally dependent on its floodplain location (e.g., bridges and flood control facilities), or the project facilitates an open space use, or the facility is an integral part of a larger network that is impractical or uneconomical to relocate, such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must also examine the possible effects of not restoring the facility, minimize floodplain/wetland impacts, and determine both that an overriding public need for the facility clearly outweighs the Executive Order requirements to avoid the floodplain/wetland, and that the site is the only practicable alternative. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and local officials will confirm to FEMA that proposed actions comply with all applicable State and local floodplain management and wetland protection requirements. FEMA intends to provide IA program funding for disaster-related emergency housing. These actions may adversely affect a floodplain/wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to floods. These actions may include repair, restoration or construction of housing or private bridges, purchase and placement of travel trailers or manufactured housing units, or repair of structures as minimum protective measures. This will be the only public notice concerning these actions. FEMA also intends to provide HMGP funding to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to mitigate future disaster damages. These projects may include construction of new facilities, modification of existing, undamaged facilities, relocation of facilities out of floodplains, demolition of structures, or other types of projects to mitigate future disaster damages. In the course of developing project proposals, subsequent public notices will be published if necessary, as more specific information becomes available. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register, and FEMA’s undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMA’s undertaking, this will be the only public notice. As noted, this may be the only public notice regarding the above-described actions under the PA, IA, and HMGP programs. Interested persons may obtain information about these actions or a specific project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Joint Field Office, 2801 Valley Road, Harrisburg, PA 17710; by calling 1-717-651-4500; or by email: Comments should be (addressed) sent in writing to Federal Coordinating Officer, at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice.
