Lawyer: Firing could hurt victims By MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

HARRISBURG — A lawyer who is advising some of those who reported being sexually abused by a former Penn State assistant football coach said he is worried that people angry about Joe Paterno’s firing could turn

them into scapegoats for the longtime coach’s sudden departure. Harrisburg attorney Ben Andreozzi said Thursday that he believes the university trustees did not consult with the people he is advising before replacing the 84year-old Paterno late Wednes-

day, a decision that prompted angry students to gather in downtown State College shouting support for the coach and tipping over a news van. “These sexual assault victims are now watching people parade and riot around the streets,” he said. “Now you have a football in-

WILKES-BARRE – Fans of Joe Paterno and the Nittany Lions are finding it difficult to remain Penn State proud. Firing Paterno – affectionately known as JoePa – has turned the usually calm State College into a tumultuous town where students rioted in support of their ousted icon. “The whole thing makes me sick to my stomach,” said Dave Roberts, a native of Kingston and longtime seasonticket holder. Roberts and his father,

Joe Paterno, seen pacing in the endzone of last year’s final home game against Michigan State, has been removed as head coach of the Nittany Lions.

Edgar, and three brothers – Mark, Doug and Don – have attended Penn State games since 1982. “We’re all saddened by this,” Roberts said. “The university did the Vnuk right thing. Joe Paterno is not the university. The board of trustees had to stop the bleeding, so to speak.” See FANS, Page 14A

Nearly 200 Luzerne County businesses that sustained damage in the September flooding now are eligible to apply for lowinterest loans to help in their recovery. The Commonwealth Financing Authority voted Thursday in Harrisburg to approve a request to free up $4 million from the local share account generated by slot machine revenues at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino in Plains Township. Under state law, a portion of slots revenue at each operating casino is allocated for local projects. Typically, municipalities apply

for funding individually for a small share of the pot – this year it’s $12 million. But in this instance, the application was done as a countywide initiative to benefit businesses from West Pittston to Shickshinny. The proposal calls for the $4 million to be sent to Scrantonbased nonprofit lending agency Metro Action, which would serve as the fiscal agent for The Luzerne County Small Business Loan Fund. The dozens of Luzerne County businesses affected by the flooding could apply for up to a $100,000 loan with an interest rate of 1 percent for five years. Some local business owners who saw their businesses hit hard by the flood waters applauded the state’s action. “A $100,000, 1 percent deal for a company in our position will

He said he will apply for the full $100,000 to help get the company back to100 percent. He has taken out bank loans with interest rates in the 4 percent range and said the additional loan program will “be a nice relief for our cash flow.” Among the other183 business owners in the county that saw their operations knocked out by the flood waters on Sept. 8 was Mike Lanunziata, owner of Crest Cleaners at 36 Luzerne Ave. in West Pittston.

EDWARDSVILLE – Kmart and Redner’s may not reopen for business due to the damage they sustained when flood waters inundated the Mark Plaza in September, borough officials fear. Council President Dave Stochla said Thursday night he has been in communication with the owners of the shopping center on U.S. Route 11 but has not been able to confirm that either business will reopen.

during the rehab project that everything is in question at this point,” said Stochla. Stochla said the plaza sits in an unprotected flood plain and there are no immediate plans to build a levee along that particular length of the Susquehanna River. “We’re a small borough with an even smaller earned income base,” said Stochla. “Many of our citizens are fixed-income seniors or very low income. Most of our revenue depends on the mercantile tax, so losing Kmart and Redner’s would definitely impact us.” In other business, council vot-

ed unanimously to enter into a one-year agreement with Northeast Recycling Solutions as part of a “single-stream recycling program.” According to officials, recyclables will now be collected on a single day instead of the current multiday pickup schedule at a substantial savings. In addition, council voted to enter into an understanding with CM3 Building Solutions under a guaranteed energy savings performance contract. The borough is applying for a state gaming grant to fund revitalization of municipal buildings with CM3, providing the design for energy cost savings at the remodeled buildings is upwards of $500,000 over 20 years.

LOCAL County tax base drops $24.9M Loss wipes out $25 million gain last year. Change will cost county $130,100. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Luzerne County’s tax base grew about $25 million from 2009 to 2010, but that gain was wiped out this year, according to an annual taxable property certification prepared each November by the county assessor’s office. The total of all taxable property was $19.855 billion in November 2010, compared to $19.83 billion this month – a decrease of $24.9 million. The reduction amounts to a loss of about $130,100 in county tax revenue

The other municipalities with reductions of 1 percent or more: Ashley, Dupont, Exeter, Hughestown, Jeddo, Plymouth, Harveys Lake and Fairmount and Salem townships. Only three municipalities have total assessments over $1 billion – WilkesBarre, $1.4 billion; Hazle Township, $1.3 billion; and Hazleton, $1 billion. Hazle Township’s assessment grew 0.5 percent in the last year, and township officials have predicted that it will surpass Wilkes-Barre’s total in coming years because it still has an abundance of vacant land for new development. The township is home to large industrial parks.

87 properties are sold

A total 87 properties were sold at Thursday’s Luzerne County back-tax auction, according to Sean Shamany, of Northeast Revenue Service LLC, which operates the county’s tax claim office. About 740 properties were listed in the upset portion of the sale, which is for properties that have not yet been listed at a delinquent sale. Seventy of these properties sold for $590,044, Shamany Shamany said. Properties are less likely to sell at upset sales because liens attached to properties are not forgiven, as opposed to free-and-clear sales, in which liens are cleared and bids typically start at several hundred dollars. About 25 properties were available at the free-and-clear portion of Thursday’s sale, and 17 sold for a total $96,449, he said. The properties that did not move in the upset sale will be auctioned in a future free-and-clear sale unless the property owners pay the debt, file for bankruptcy or obtain court orders. Properties that don’t sell in free-and-clear sales go into a repository for purchase at any time.

WILKES-BARRE – A Nanticoke man was sentenced Thursday to four to eight years in state prison on a dozen charges stemming from five incidents, including burglaries at Moon Lake Park in Plymouth Township. Luzerne County Senior Judge Hugh Mundy sentenced Jonathan Michael Kemmerer, 27, of East Broad Street, on two counts of robbery; three counts of criminal trespassing; four counts of theft by unlawful taking; two counts of criminal mischief, and one count of possessing an instrument of crime. Kemmerer Kemmerer pleaded guilty to the charges in October. According to court papers: On Jan. 28, Kemmerer robbed the Cocoa Hut on East Main Street in Nanticoke, telling a clerk he had a gun.

WILKES-BARRE – The family of a 16year-old killed in a fiery car crash in July has filed a lawsuit in Luzerne County Court against the driver of the vehicle and the Glen Summit Co., alleging the teen’s death was caused by their acts. Carolyn and Daniel Madry, parents of the late Brian Madry, filed the suit last week against the driver of the vehicle, 16-year-old Adam Fredmund, the Glen Summit Co. that owns Fountain Lake where the teens were drinking, and Kenneth John Rushinski, 21, of Luzerne, who was has been charged with supplying alcohol to the teens. Fairview Township police and county detectives said Fredmund had been drinking alcohol at a party before crashing a 2004 Kia Optima on Lake Road, an isolated road in the Glen Summit section, early in the morning on July 18. Madry, of Evergreen Lake Drive, Wright Township, was a passenger in the Kia. An autopsy determined he died of multiple traumatic injuries. In the lawsuit filed by attorneys of the

Card program gives vets boost Free plastic identification cards verify honorable discharge, good for discounts at businesses. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

A new program offers veterans in Luzerne County free plastic identification cards that verify their honorable discharge from the military and can be used to obtain discounts at participating businesses. “It’s a good way for businesses to honor our veterans,” county Veteran Affairs Director James Spagnola said Thursday during an announcement about the program. Spagnola and county Recorder of Deeds James “Red” O’Brien decided to start the card and discount program – believed to be the first in Pennsylvania -- after they heard about its popularity in New York. The program is called “Return the F.A.V.O.R. (Find & Assist

Veterans of Record).” O’Brien said no tax dollars are involved in making the cards because the program is funded by a fee on deed recordings in his office that must be used for record improvements. The recorder of deeds office stores military discharge records. Businesses decide the discount they

want to offer, from dollar amounts or percentages off purchases to other special offers, Spagnola said. Participating merchants’ names, addresses and discount details will be listed in a pamphlet and a website about the program, and the businesses will receive a display poster announcing their participation, he said. Businesses that are interested in the program may call Spagnola at 7063960 or O’Brien at 825-1646. Veterans may contact Spagnola to schedule an appointment to obtain a card. Army veteran Ray Majeski, Edwardsville, came to the Veterans Affairs office Thursday to get his photograph taken for a card, which he received on the spot. “It’s a terrific program,” he said. Air Force veteran Ray Talacka, Wilkes-Barre Township, said he appreciates the card he received Thursday and looks forward to discount offers. “It’s fantastic. This will help a lot of veterans,” he said.

Boscov’s Downtown Wilkes-Barre will host a bake sale featuring Faith Lane and her Sweet Potato Pies. Lane will be at Boscov’s with her pies in conjunction with Zebra Communications on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. in the first level Misses Department. A $10 donation for a pie is asked and all proceeds will go to The Salvation Army. Lane, owner of Faith’s Homemade Sweet Potato Pies, is a senior at Wilkes University and a member of Zebra Communications, the student-run PR agency. The fundraiser is being held to support the Salvation Army’s “Need Knows No Season” campaign. WILKES-BARRE

Germany’s government hopes to cut nearly 1,000 troops from the country’s contingent in Afghanistan by January 2013, the foreign and defense ministers said Thursday.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney chugged ahead Thursday as the conservative-fueled drive to deny him the Republican presidential nomination reached a difficult new phase: Once-surging rivals Rick Perry and Herman Cain scrambled to control serious damage, while an old face sought new ways to exploit their problems. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich could emerge as the newest hope for conservative activists who doubt Romney’s commitment to their priorities. But Gingrich trails Romney and others in organizing in key states such as Iowa. And he will have to prove that his long and sometimes troubled political history can withstand closer scrutiny. Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Perry rearranged his schedule Thursday to try to mitigate a disastrous debate moment, in which he could not remember the third federal agency he has vowed to abolish. Perry canceled a Tennessee fundraiser to appear on several TV networks and the David Letterman show, pledging to stay in the race. He repeatedly said he “stepped in it” at the Wednesday night debate but declared in an interview, “This ain’t a day for quitting nothing.” For Cain, the former pizza company

executive, it was day 11 of trying to get beyond sexual harassment accusations leveled against him by four women, two of whom received cash settlements from a Cain trade association Cain once headed. Facing voters for the first time since the allegations emerged, Cain met with tea party groups in Michigan, hoping the friendly settings would prePerry serve the lofty perch he enjoyed in GOP polls two weeks ago. “How you beat Obama? Beat him with a Cain!” he told one supporter at a crowded diner in Ypsilanti. The crowd cheered. He is airing his first TV ad in Iowa, and he has hired a new lawyer who is warning women they will be scrutinized for any charges made against the candidate. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, filmed a TV ad in Iowa on Thursday and blasted President Barack Obama’s Iran policy in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece. His supporters quietly reveled in the good fortune of Perry’s and Cain’s woes. With the Iowa caucus set for Jan. 3,

and the New Hampshire primary a week after that, Romney is looking strong, but he’s hardly home free. Many conservatives still resent his past support of legalized abortion and gay rights, and his requirement that all Massachusetts residents obtain health insurance. But they have failed to coalesce around a single alternative. Rep. Michele Bachmann briefly topped the polls, followed by Perry and then Cain.

It’s unclear whether Cain can hold his position. Some Iowa Republicans hope former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who emphasizes social conservative issues such as abortion and gay rights, can make a move. He has visited all 99 Iowa counties and aired radio commercials. Other party insiders feel the person best poised to rise is Gingrich, the fiery Georgian who led the GOP’s 1994 takeover of the House.

effort to retake control of its beleaguered sewer system and wipe away as much of its whopping $4.15 billion in debt as possible. Jefferson County’s Chapter 9 filing on Wednesday gives it protection from creditors while it develops and negotiates a plan for adjusting its debts. It could accomplish that by extending debt maturities, reducing the amount of principal or interest, or refinancing the debt by obtaining a new loan. Its 658,000 residents could wind up facing even higher sewer rates.

Occupy camper shot

A 35-year-old man was shot and gravely wounded Thursday in an Occupy Wall Street encampment in Vermont’s largest city, police said. The public was not believed to be at risk after the afternoon shooting at City Hall Park in Burlington, but the circumstances are still being investigated, said Burlington Police Deputy Chief Andi Higbee. The victim has been identified, but his name will not be released until his family has been notified, Higbee said. The encampment has been in the park since Oct. 28. The city had threatened to evict the protesters because the park is closed from midnight until 6 a.m., but city officials made special accommodation for the protesters. BEIRUT

Syrian security forces raided homes and clashes erupted between soldiers and army defectors Thursday, killing at least 21 people across the country, including an 8-year-old girl and six soldiers, activists said. In some of the attacks, security forces opened fire as they conducted raids in search of dissidents in areas including the suburbs of the capital, Damascus, Deir el-Zour, Hama and Homs, which has emerged as the epicenter of the uprising. An 8-year-old girl was among the victims in Homs, said Rami AbdulRahman, head of the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. VAN, TURKEY

A Japanese aid worker was among 10 people killed by a second earthquake in eastern Turkey, and angry residents protested Thursday that authorities should have closed down two collapsed hotels that were damaged by the first temblor. Riot police used pepper spray to halt the protests. The demonstration erupted as rescue workers with pickaxes and earthmovers searched for survivors of Wednesday night’s magnitude 5.7quake, which hit the same region slammed by a magnitude 7.2 temblor on Oct. 23 that left 600 people dead in the eastern province of Van. Some 28 people were pulled out of the rubble in the provincial capital, also called Van, as frantic rescue efforts began Wednesday evening and lasted through the night under high-powered lights. All 10 fatalities occurred in the two collapsed hotels.

Greece, Italy change leadership The Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece — Greece is replacing its prime minister with a banker, and Italy looks likely to do the same with an economist — both hoping that financial experts can do better than the politicians who drove the eurozone into crisis. Thursday’s political agreement in Athens after four days of dithering calmed financial markets, coupled with the prospect that volatile Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will be leaving office sooner rather than later. But significant challenges remain in both debt-heavy Mediterranean coun-

tries. Lucas Papademos, former vice president of the European Central Bank, must quickly secure the crucial loan installment without which his country will go bankrupt before Christmas, and approve the EU’s Oct. 26 130 billion euro bailout deal. In Italy, lawmakers have to pass new austerity measures over the next few days. Papademos called for unity Thursday and promised to seek cross-party cooperation to keep Greece firmly in the 17-nation eurozone. Papademos’ selection came as Italy wrestled with its own government crisis,

with economist Mario Monti appearing to be in line to run an interim technocratic government after Berlusconi goes. Italy’s borrowing costs shot up alarmingly Wednesday on fears that Berlusconi would linger in office, but the markets calmed Thursday when it appeared that Italian lawmakers would approve the latest government austerity plans in the next few days and Berlusconi would resign after that. Monti, 68, made his reputation as the European Union competition commissioner who blocked General Electric’s takeover of Honeywell.

WASHINGTON — A united Senate emphatically approved legislation Thursday intended to help unemployed veterans and companies doing business with the government, endorsing a measure that includes the first small slice of President Barack Obama’s jobs plan that is likely to become law. The 95-0 vote will let senators head home for today’s Veterans Day events and take credit for helping some of the 240,000 jobless vets of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The bill would give tax credits of up to $9,600 to companies hiring disabled vets who have been jobless at least six months, and improve job training and counseling for veterans. Obama included the tax breaks in his $447 billion jobs plan, which has otherwise gone nowhere so far in Congress. The bill also repeals a law requiring federal, state and local governments to withhold 3 percent of their payments to contractors. That statute, which has yet to take effect, was designed to thwart tax cheats, but lawmakers now say it makes it harder for those companies to hire. The House could pass the legislation next week.

Once in a century: Today just might be a lucky day for fans of the number 11 Today, Nov. 11, 2011, will bring out the gamblers, lovers, sellers and bargain-hunters. By MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press

Place your bets! Tie the knot! Make a wish! Friday is the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011, and around the country, many people are planning to mark

the triple convergence of 11s with a splash, hoping it will bring them good fortune or at least amuse them for a day. Marjaneh Peyrovan, who just moved to New York, plans to buy 11 lottery tickets (each, of course, including the number 11). She will check out apartments she has been eyeing. And precisely at 11:11 a.m., she will walk into the office of Diane von Furstenberg, the fashion designer for whom she has long dreamed of working.

“People say on 11/11 things happen, things will come true,” she said. “You never know.” Twins Betsy and Katie Overman of Madison, Wis., will celebrate their 11th birthdays with sweet bread topped with a buttercream number 11. Their mother, Julie Overman, plans to put 11 candles in their meals and snacks. And the twins will wear socks festooned with 11s. “They also found the 11 date is supposed to be lucky for relationships, but

they still think boys are gross,” their mother said. In Atlantic City, N.J., some restaurants are advertising $11.11 meals and the Trump Taj Mahal is planning drawings every 11 minutes for up to $1,111. The Riverwind Casino is Norman, Okla., prepared for an onslaught of gamblers eager to roll the dice or double-down in blackjack. “Gamblers are a superstitious bunch,” said Jack Parkinson, the casino’s general manager.

Kingston names assistant chief Daniel E. Hunsinger was captain of patrol, a post he had held since March 2005. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

With an impressive three-page resume that includes time as a youth soccer and softball coach and memberships in many community service and law enforcement organizations, Daniel E. Hunsinger was promoted to assistant police chief of the Kingston Police Department. Hunsinger, 48, held the rank as captain of patrol since March 2005. He was promoted during a brief ceremony Wednesday night.

Mayor James Haggerty said the promotion of Hunsinger reorganized the police department. “What we had under the police chief were two captains, a captain for patrol and a captain for detectives,” Haggerty said. “When John Jorda retired a few months back, we asked what do we do and thought Hunsinger was a knowledgeable guy with extensive law enforcement experience to make assistant chief.” Jorda retired in July as captain of detectives, ending a 24-year law enforcement career. With Hunsinger’s promotion, he is now in charge of the patrol and criminal investigation units. A vacant spot in the criminal investigation unit was filled within the police department when

Shumosic, Haggerty said. “Our police staffing remains the same,” Haggerty noted. “With Hunsinger doing the administrative work it leaves the detectives and patrolmen to do more police work.” Hunsinger graduated from West Side Vocational Technical School in 1981 and the Lackawanna College Police Academy in December 1986. He worked as a police officer for several West Side municipalities before being hired SUBMITTED PHOTO in Kingston in December 1989. Hunsinger is a member of Kingston Assistant Police Chief Daniel E.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved buyouts of seven Plymouth Township homes, including two damaged in the flash flood that rushed through the town July 3. Township Supervisor Gail Conrad said five of the homes slated for buyouts were included, with 25 other properties, in an application for federal hazard mitigation submitted by the township last October. The township applied for hazard mitigation under a disaster declaration related to snowstorms in February, 2010. Luzerne County was not included in that disaster declaration, but Plymouth was still able to apply because funding to buy and demolish flood-prone properties becomes available in any municipality when there is a federal disaster declaration somewhere in the state. After touring the area following the devastating July 3 downpour, federal officials also added the two homes on Coal Street, which were rendered uninhabitable and irreparable by the flash flood, into that application, Conrad said. The township hasn’t applied for hazard mitigation since October, Conrad said. The total cost to acquire and demolish the houses is $767,400, of which the federal

While Hornick dipped an ice cream scooper into a bowl of dough and placed the mixture on a baking sheet, other students were in the kitchen with chef Tom Koval mixing the ingredients and placing the sheets into ovens. Still others placed the cookies – chocolate chip, peanut butter and sugar – into plastic containers lined

with paper doilies. “We have a great system going,” said Koval of Edwardsville. Nearby his daughter Brinn, 15, a student at Wyoming Valley West, stood next to a commercial mixer waiting to remove the bowl of dough and deliver to the next station in the process. At 8 a.m. today, the containers of cookies, each containing a thank you note from the ministry, will be delivered to 452 first responders at 21 locations throughout the Wyoming Valley.

dollars in damage. He operated the business for 31 years. The low-interest loan could be a godsend since his attempts to get bank loans have been met with offers of interest rates between 4 and 5 percent. But he’s worried that the five-year borrowing term might make monthly payments too great for small businesses to pay back. But right now, he’s thankful there’s an option for him and other business owners to at least entertain. So too are local chamber of commerce leaders who have heard from distraught business owners that obtaining funding to get back on their feet has been a tough task. “Since early September, our top priority has been making sure the businesses affected by the recent flooding have the help they need to rebuild. This program for Luzerne County businesses will play a vital role in their difficult road to recovery,” said Rosemary Dessoye, executive vice president of the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce. “This program will be a tremendous help to business owners

government will contribute $575,550, according to U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta’s office. After demolition of the seven homes, the properties they are situated on will be given to the township. No homes or businesses will be able to be constructed there, though the land could be used for recreation or other public use. Demolition will be funded by the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, which issues grants to states and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration, in the interest of saving the government money in the long-run where disasters are likely to strike again. In order to qualify for hazard mitigation, a property must show significant loss, typically defined as damage to at least 50 percent of a structure, and a likelihood of damage occurring again in future disasters, FEMA spokesman Mike Sweet said. Sweet said the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency is seeking to fast-track hazard-mitigation applications for structures damaged in the September flood of the Susquehanna River, but it will likely take some time before hazard mitigation is approved for that disaster. The process typically takes two to three years, Sweet said. and we are happy to finally offer them something concrete in the way of low interest loans. This is the best news we have heard in a long time.” State Sen. John Yudichak said he understands concerns from some business owners that the maximum amount of the loan may not be enough for them, but he said the $4 million pot will go a long way to “help save some jobs and help save some businesses.” Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary C. Alan Walker was in Shickshinny on Wednesday touring the hard-hit borough. He applauded the initiative just minutes after the authority voted unanimously to approve it. The job angle to the loan program was referenced by several area legislators including Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, and Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township. State Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski threw his support behind the program but only after changes were made from the original proposal, including adding safeguards to protect against wasteful spending. Those changes include specific financial and performance audits throughout the life of the loan.

It was 25 years ago today God sent a precious child our way. There are things we don’t want to happen but we have to accept. Things we don’t want to know but have to learn. People we don’t want to live without, but have to let go of. Lord, please let us embrace the pain & burn it as fuel through our journey of life. Happy Birthday Son! You are sadly missed & truly loved! Forever in our hearts! Mom, Dad, Holly, Family & Friends & Ruben

God looked around His garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw that road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, “Peace Be Thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of me went with you, The day God called you home.

Casey, Toomey rescind support for Paterno medal PSU coach was recommended for the Presidential Medal of Freedom back in September. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

Support for a nomination for Joe Paterno for the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, has been rescinded by two of the men who made the recommendation. In September, U.S. Sens. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, and U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Howard Township, crafted a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to consider awarding the then-Penn State

bett, who is on the board and is in State College for another, previously scheduled session. Corbett also asked Penn State students to refrain from the violence that wracked their college town after the firing of Paterno, saying the nation is watching their behavior. Sandusky, Paterno’s former assistant and onetime heir apparent, has been charged with molesting eight boys in a 15-year span. In the week since the grand jury released its report, Paterno and Spanier have been fired and two other top university officials also are out. Meanwhile, The Philadelphia Inquirer was reporting Thursday that, according to a spokesman, police in San Antonio, Texas, are investigating allegations that Sandusky molested a boy while on a 1998 team trip to the city. The probe, based on testimony laid out in last weekend’s grand jury presentment, could lead to additional charges, the Inquirer reported. “Certainly every Pennsylvanian who has any knowledge of this case, who has read the grand jury report, feels a sense of regret and a sorrow to also see careers end,” Corbett said. “But we must keep in mind that when it comes to the safety of children, there

volved in the case, but stopped short of saying he represents them in any potential civil matters. “I don’t want to go there, because there’s a criminal investigation going on,” he said. “It would be premature to comment on a civil lawsuit until the criminal process is played out.” Former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested Saturday on 40 criminal counts and accused of sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year period — some on Penn State’s campus. Two school administrators, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz, stepped down after being charged with not

proper authorities will move forward with their investigation without delay. Penn State is an important institution in our commonwealth. We should turn our attention to the victims of these atrocious crimes and ensure they get the help they need. Our hearts and prayers go out to them and their families.” In the letter dated Sept. 7, the trio asked Obama for his support. The letter details Paterno’s onfield endeavors and accomplishments including records for most major college football wins and two national championships. “While these numbers are unrivaled, Coach Paterno’s contributions to society off the field are even more noteworthy,” the let-

ter states. It goes on to say: “Coach Paterno over the years has shown tremendous character and loyalty. Throughout his time at Penn State, he has remained committed to reaching goals without sacrificing the ideals that are central to higher education.” In an emailed comment, Thompson said, “The Senators have every right to rescind their nomination.” He said there were dozens of members of Congress that signed on to the letter recommending the nomination and each of those members also have the opportunity to rescind their support. Support for Paterno, Thompson said, is something “you’d be hard pressed to find given the troubling events that have

University football coach “for his substantial contributions to collegiate athletics, higher education and American society.” Since that time, much has changed. On Wednesday, Paterno, 84, was fired from the position he has held for 46 years amidst an ongoing sexual abuse scandal that has rocked the university. Paterno’s former assistant Jerry Sandusky

is charged with abusing eight boys over a 15-year period. National media attention has engulfed the bucolic town of State College and the scandal, in addition to Paterno, has also cost Penn State President Graham Spanier his job. Multiple investigations are under way by the school, state and federal governments to find out the extent of the abuse and any cover up. A statement issued Thursday by the two senators explains their decision to rescind their nomination. “In light of the recent events in State College, we are rescinding our support for the nomination of Joe Paterno for the Presidential Medal of Freedom. We hope the

can be no margin of error, no hesitation to act.” Board vice chairman John Surma said in announcing the firings of Paterno and Spanier, one of the longest-serving college presidents in the nation, that “change was necessary.” “To allow this process to continue was going to be damaging to the university,” Surma said. Bradley, who testified before the grand jury, declined to reveal what he said, but added: “We all have a responsibility to take care of our children. All of us.” Even Paterno himself acknowledges he should have done more. McQueary, who is Penn State’s wide receivers coach, told a state grand jury that in March 2002, he saw Sandusky sodomizing a boy of about 10 in the showers at the Penn State football building. McQueary later told Paterno, Curley and a university vice president, Gary Schultz about the incident, although it is not clear how detailed his description was. Schultz, in turn, notified Spanier. Curley and Schultz — as well as Paterno — testified they were told that Sandusky behaved inappropriately in that 2002 incident, but not to the extent of McQueary’s graphic account to the grand jury. Curley and Schultz have been charged with perjury and failure to report the incident to authorities, as required by state law. Curley is on temporary leave and

Schultz has retired. Through his attorney, Sandusky has denied the charges. Paterno is not a target of the criminal investigation, having fulfilled his legal duties by reporting the incident to Curley and Schultz. But the state police commissioner called Paterno’s failure to contact police or follow up on the incident a lapse in “moral responsibility.” Paterno has not said why he didn’t go inform law enforcement authorities, nor has he said whether he was aware of any earlier alleged assaults. Aside from a few brief comments outside his house and two statements, Paterno has not spoken publicly since Sandusky was indicted. McQueary has not spoken publicly, either. His mother, Anne, said Thursday they have been advised not to. Then 28, McQueary was “distraught” after witnessing the alleged 2002 assault, according to the indictment. Yet it appears he may have continued to participate in fundraising events with Sandusky — including one held less than a month later. Sandusky was a coach at a March 28, 2002, flag-football fundraiser for the Easter Seals of Central Pennsylvania, and McQueary and other Penn State staff members participated by either playing or signing autographs, according to a “Letter of special thanks” published in the Centre Daily Times.

The paper also reported McQueary was scheduled to play in The Second Mile Celebrity Golf Classic in 2002 and 2003. The Second Mile is the charity Sandusky founded in 1997 to provide education and life skills to almost 100,000 at-risk kids each year. And in 2004, the Centre Daily Times reported McQueary played in the third annual Subway Easter Bowl Game, an Easter Seals fundraiser that was jointly coached by Sandusky. Sandusky, a former PSU player and assistant for 30 years, including 22 as defensive coordinator, had long been considered the likely successor to Paterno. But Paterno told Sandusky around May 1999 that the assistant

wouldn’t be getting the top job. According to the indictment, one of the alleged victims testified that Sandusky was “emotionally upset” after that meeting with Paterno, and Sandusky announced his retirement the next month. Sandusky, then just 55, cited as reasons for his retirement his desire to spend more time with The Second Mile, as well as taking advantage of a generous retirement package that included continued use of an office and access to the Penn State athletic facilities. Several of the alleged assaults took place on Penn State property. Despite spending most of his career at Penn State as a defensive assistant and succeeding

properly reporting suspected child abuse and lying to a grand jury. Through their lawyers, all three have said they are innocent. On Wednesday, Paterno announced plans to retire at the end of the season, but several hours later Penn State’s board of trustees fired him and announced that president Graham Spanier was also out of a job. “My biggest concern is, it’s not necessarily the decision,” Andreozzi said. “Don’t you think these victims deserve some input or consideration in what happened?” As of late Thursday morning, the attorney said he had not spoken to the people he is advising about the departures but has talked to them as the story has unfolded in recent days. He declined to say how many people he is advising in the matter. “I think it’s fair to say the school

could have anticipated the negative response from the students,” he said. “And the victims may have associated that negative response as siding with certain people in this case and not siding with them.” There has been considerable speculation about potential lawsuits in the wake of the allegations, which include charges

Sandusky molested children in the Penn State football team’s facilities. Andreozzi said “it’s premature to discuss that.” Spanier’s replacement, interim president Rodney Erickson, issued a statement Thursday that called this one of the saddest weeks in the school’s history. “As a member of the Penn State

community for 34 years, as a parent, and as a grandfather, I find the charges as they have been described to be devastating, and my heart goes out to those who have been victimized and their families,” Erickson said. An emailed message sent to a Penn State spokeswoman seeking reaction to Andreozzi’s comments was not immediately returned.

come to light over the past few days.” His spokesman did not reply to a question asking whether Thompson too would rescind his support. The Presidential Medal of Freedom honors individuals who make an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors. More than 1,000 people have received the award, which was first issued in1963, including dozens from the world of sports. Among past recipients are Hank Aaron, Muhammad Ali, Jesse Owens, Bear Bryant and John Wooden. Sandusky as defensive coordinator, Bradley had little to say about his predecessor. Penn State has said Bradley will be interim coach for the rest of the season, beginning with Saturday’s home finale against Nebraska. It has not said if Bradley will be a candidate for the permanent job. It’s not even clear who will do the hiring, with Curley on leave and provost Rodney Erickson serving as interim president. In the wake of Paterno’s firing, thousands of students took to the streets Wednesday night, overturning a TV news van and throwing objects at police and others. “I believe in your right of assembly and your right to express your opinions,” Corbett said. “I do not believe, nor does anyone believe, in your right to violence.” Investigators said they were reviewing video footage and have identified numerous suspects. Police estimated the crowd totaled as many as 4,000 to 5,000 and that officers made numerous orders to disperse but eventually had to use pepper spray. Authorities didn’t say how many arrests had been made. President Barack Obama weighed in Thursday, saying he believes that if the allegations of child sex-abuse at Penn State are true, then “what happened is outrageous,” according to Obama’s spokesman.

I

t was refreshing to read the statement in an Associated Press article printed Thursday in The Times Leader by Penn State University Board of Trustee’s vice chairman John Surma: “The university is much larger than its athletic teams.” The article devoted nearly the first two paragraphs to the firing of football coach Joe Paterno, followed by this short sentence: “Penn State president Graham Spanier also was ousted.” The president after the coach! Hundreds of professors are teaching, doing research and publishing, yet these efforts receive little attention, buried as they are under the avalanche of reports about the Nittany Lions and their famous coach. Of course, Penn State is not entirely unhappy about this state of things; alumni cough up more donations when there is a winning football team. Perhaps PSU should reconsider the religious mania for football, which for too long has characterized Happy Valley, and rededicate the university to its first responsibility: learning.

Some political candidates sullied veterans parade

T

hank goodness the elections are over! Candidates, both winners and losers, should be ashamed of themselves. We had to put up with an ocean of television commercials, junk mail filling our mail boxes, unsightly signs dotting Northeastern Pennsylvania’s landscape and invasive recorded and unsolicited telephone calls. Certain candidates reached a new low on Sunday at the Wyoming Valley Veterans Day Parade. As a veteran of the Vietnam conflict, I was highly insulted to see this parade turned into a political show. While saluting a passing American flag, I was accosted by a potential candidate passing out “vote for me” cards. How rude! Seeing our elected officials march in the parade to honor veterans was wonderful. Seeing candidates riding in vehicles for the sole purpose of promoting their campaigns was disgraceful. It was obvious they were honoring themselves, not our nation’s veterans. Shame on the parade organizers for allowing this to happen. I am truly disappointed and think that political campaigning has gone beyond the limits of common sense and decency. I commend The Times Leader for covering Sunday’s parade with a terrific article and photographs and never once mentioning the political candidates involved. They do not deserve recognition, and The Times Leader certainly didn’t give it to them. Herb Lasman Kingston

Benefits still available for Pennsylvania veterans

T

o honor Veterans Day, I’m writing to remind readers that Pennsylvania offers a special one-time payment to honor the service and sacrifice of its veterans who served on active duty in the Persian Gulf Theater from Aug. 2, 1990 to Aug. 31, 1991. An estimated 20,000 veterans have yet to apply for this benefit, which pays $75 per month of qualifying active-duty service (up to a $525 maximum). For personnel who died through illness or injury received in the line of duty, an additional payment of $5,000 is available to their surviving family. Service members who were declared prisoners of war also might be eligible for an additional payment of $5,000. To learn more, visit www.persiangulfbonus.state.pa.us, or call, toll-free, 1-866458-9182. I invite readers to share this information with friends or family members to help ensure that every Persian Gulf War veteran from Pennsylvania receives this well-deserved benefit. Brig. Gen.

County council candidate grateful for voter support

I

am honored that voters chose me as one of the 11 members to serve on our first Luzerne County Council. I pledge to work with the other council members, dozens of managers, hundreds of employees and our new county executive to give you what you voted for: fair, efficient and decent government. These next few weeks will be devoted to working with all of these people, reading over a lot of documents and finding the best manager to meet our county’s needs. One of my campaign promises was to help restore decency to our county government. So until we have a council clerk and website to address concerns, you may use www.harryhaas.com to communicate with me. I will pass your ideas on to council as we collectively come to the best solutions. I think we will all appreciate your under-

Skater sees potential in Coal Street ice rink

T

he Times Leader reported on Oct. 28 that I spoke again at a Wilkes-Barre City Council meeting to ask for increased public skate time and affordability at the Coal Street Park ice rink. I would like to make a clarification, because there is adequate public skate time on the weekends. While an after-school special might be nice for Wilkes-Barre kids, without quality rental skates and adequate marketing, it would be a failure. What I am really asking for is a higher degree of accountability. At the meeting I spoke about my experiences in skating and how fortunate I was to start skating in a great, communityfocused facility. I was a poor kid from Northeastern Pennsylvania with no skating experience, but I was given many opportunities to learn, practice and advance before I even bought my own skates. I didn’t have to join a private club or hire my own coach to participate. I am not asking for a facility in its third season to show the same results as more established peers, but I do ask that we have a clear goal of serving Wilkes-Barre residents in a city park facility. A facility on private land, with private financing, is often deemed to be successful if it simply breaks even. Whom these facilities choose to cater to is their business. A facility in a public park – with public financing obtained due to the needs of the community, where taxpayer-paid city administrators oversaw the entire project – has a duty to do more. A public facility must serve its community and break even to be successful. The opportunities I was given did not happen by chance. It wasn’t, “If they build it, they will come.” The reality is that a dedicated, critical, rink management team worked hard to create those possibilities. Our skating rink should do the same. I would like accountability for service to a significant number of Wilkes-Barre residents in the rink management contract. Also, a mission statement that includes Wilkes-Barre residents and a strategic plan that supports that mission. This is what I really want in Coal Street Park. With only four healthy, character-building, Olympic ice sports from which to choose, there might not be something for everyone in an ice rink; but there is certainly something for more Wilkes-Barre residents than I see in the facility regularly.

Some PSU students disagree with JoePa firing Most contacted at W-B and Hazleton say trustees’ move not right. By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

Most Penn State students interviewed at local campuses Thursday disagreed with university trustees’ decision to fire football coach Joe Paterno, but a variety of opinions surfaced at a forum at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. At Penn State Hazleton, Nicole McLoughlin, 18, of Pocono Mountain, said Paterno should not have been fired “because he told someone higher up (of abuse allegations) like he was supposed to. They just

never reported it.” Leeann Tufaro, 18, of Hackensack, N.J., agreed with her friend, saying it was Paterno’s supervisors who “didn’t do anything. Everybody’s going to criticize (Paterno) because he’s so famous. We always knock down the famous people.” Late Wednesday, university trustees fired Paterno and university President Graham Spanier after the state attorney general announced charges of sexual abuse of children against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Neither Paterno nor Spanier face charges, but as the two most visible figures at the school, they’ve been under intense scrutiny for

being aware of allegations against Sandusky and not doing more to bring them to light. Andrew Slavin, 19, of Philadelphia, said he drove to University Park on Wednesday. “There were riots, but we got there too late to see them. The whole school is in an outrage.” Slavin said Sandusky “belongs in jail” and trustees “should have let (Paterno) finish the season.” Niguel Williams, 18, of Long Island, N.Y., also said trustees should have let Paterno retire. “I think he was just caught in the crossfire.” At Penn State WilkesBarre, Christina Hanley, 19, of Nanticoke, said it

wasn’t Paterno’s fault that his superiors didn’t report sexual abuse allegations against Sandusky to police. “He told who he needed to,” she said. Terry Franklin, 19, of Glen Lyon, said Paterno’s firing was “bogus” because he reported Sandusky’s alleged actions and testified before a grand jury when asked. He said trustees should be replaced because they should have let Paterno retire “rather than strip him of his dignity and all the work he’s done.” Richard Dante, 20, of Hunlock Creek, said he feels bad for Paterno, but also for the alleged victims and their families. “I don’t know how to feel. My friends are divided. Half

are angry for Joe Paterno and the other half are angry for the victims.” Penn State Wilkes-Barre Chancellor Charles Davis said at a campus forum on the issue, sponsored by the campus Student Government Association, that a mix of emotions is natural. “A lot of people are upset. A lot of people are disappointed. A lot of people are sort of like the weather that’s outside, in a gray funk. They don’t really know who to be upset at, who to be disappointed in, what to be disappointed in and how do we get out of it,” Davis said, encouraging questions or comments from the approximately 30 students, faculty members and staffers at-

tending. Davis said he believes the board of trustees “did what they thought was in the best interest of the university. … We may agree or we may not agree.” One student said he is proud there were no riots at the Wilkes-Barre campus. Another asked if Davis thought the scandal would affect the WilkesBarre campus in enrollment or donations. Davis said he thought indirect impacts were possible, but it was too early to tell. Some students said it was too early to judge Paterno because all the facts weren’t in. Steven Putzel, associate professor of English, said he’s disturbed not only by the alleged

abuses, but “by a lot of the student response” after Paterno’s firing. “Nobody knew what Paterno knew and when he knew it. … But that guy is so guilty,” Putzel said. “He knew something went on and he didn’t check.” “The best thing that can happen for us is that we see this as a life lesson. Yes, we have to live our lives morally, we have to do the right thing. That’s how Joe Paterno lived his. He did the right thing in most cases. … But the fact is he destroyed his entire legacy with a sin of omission; he didn’t follow up. … Spanier didn’t follow up. Our board of trustees did exactly the right thing to let these men go,” he said.

Sign with Penn State official’s name torn from child care center DALLAS – The sign bearing the name of one of the Penn State officials charged in the alleged cover-up of child sex abuse was stripped from a child care center after the board of trustees fired longtime head football coach Joe Paterno and the school’s president as the furor grew over the spreading scandal. The Gary Schultz Child Care Center at Hort Woods, managed

Roberts said the first concern should be for the victims Sandusky allegedly harmed. “It’s just a terrible, terrible situation,” said Roberts, who added he and his brothers will continue to attend games. “The university is trying to protect its image, but let’s see more concern for the victims,” he said. “And I hope the university takes all necessary measures to assure something like this never happens again.” Joe Kovalewski, a Berwick native and school teacher there,

by Dallas-based Hildebrandt Learning Centers LLC, was dedicated Sept. 23 on the campus in State College. Schultz was charged Saturday with lying to a grand jury that returned an indictment against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky alleging he sexually abused eight boys over a 15 years. William Grant, chief executive officer of Hildebrandt, said vandals “ripped the name off the building” sometime after the fir-

ing of Paterno and school president Graham Spanier. “There is no identifying marker,” said Grant. The board of trustees approved naming the center for Schultz, who retired from the school in 2009 and returned to serve as senior vice president for finance and business. Law enforcement officials charged Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley with failing to tell police about a complaint

made against Sandusky in 2002. Then graduate assistant Mike McQueary told his father and Paterno about an incident in a shower involving Sandusky and a boy. Paterno then contacted Curley and Schultz. Paterno, who is not the target of a criminal investigation, issued a statement before his firing saying he was devastated by the PHOTO FROM HILDEBRANDT BROCHURE Sandusky case. “With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done The Gary Schultz Child Care Center at Hort Woods in State Colmore,” said Paterno. lege, managed by Dallas-based Hildebrandt Learning Centers LLC.

said Thursday he is considering not renewing his Penn State season tickets. “I was,” Kovalewski, 26, said when asked if he’s still a Penn State fan. “I’m outraged by what happened – outraged by the cover up, outraged by the behavior of students. I’m disappointed in the university for not doing the moral thing and reporting the allegations to the police.” Kovalewski said everyone who knew about the Sandusky allegations should be let go. “We have a moral responsibility to protect children,” he said. “This is much bigger than football. Like Matt Millen said, ‘If we can’t protect children as a

society, then we are pathetic.’ ” Kovalewski said he won’t be at Saturday’s final home game against Nebraska. Ed Vnuk, owner of Sport JES in Plymouth, attends every Nittany Lion home game with 20 to 25 others. He said the group will be at the Nebraska game and will renew their season tickets. “Sure we’re disappointed, but I think you have to let the situation play out,” he said. “We haven’t heard the facts from Joe. I read the attorney general’s report; Joe went through the chain of command and reported what he knew to his superiors. They were supposed to take care of it.”

Jim Paddock, 50, of Swoyersville, attends two or three Penn State games every year. He said most of the fans he knows feel like there has been a death in the family. “There are no winners here,” Paddock said. “The tragedy of abuse that happened is sickening. The falling of an icon, to have his lifelong reputation tarnished, is sad.” He said he is holding out hope that Paterno’s involvement won’t be as bad as I seems. Paddock will attend Saturday’s game but will be “less enthusiastic” about it. Rick and Karen Pietraccini of Dallas are Penn State graduates. Rick has been a season-ticket

holder since his days as a student. “First of all, I’m a father and there is nothing more precious than my children,” Rick, 55, said. “That someone could have allegedly done these acts with children disgusts me. I hope due process runs its course.” Karen said she felt shock and heartache when she learned of the Sandusky charges. “How could something like this go on past 1998?” she asked. “That (Sandusky)

couldn’t have been stopped is unbelievable to me. I don’t understand how he was allowed on campus, even if people just had a suspicion, why was he still allowed to be around.” The Pietraccinis support the team. “The team is swept up in something too that nobody wants to be swept up in right now,” Rick said. “To boycott the team or not attend games is not constructive; it wouldn’t show positive direction.”

Rematches highlight first week of playoff action By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

INSIDE: Predictions, Page 3B

Wyoming Valley West opened the season with a 14-point victory over Scranton. A week later, Dallas topped Scranton Prep by 28 points. So when those matchups occur again this weekend, the outcomes should be similar, right? No so fast. If anything, Scranton and Prep are far different teams than the ones that showed up earlier in the season. And the

Spartans and Mountaineers know that. Valley West (9-1) gets the first crack at a rematch as it hosts Scranton (7-3) at 7 p.m. today in a District 2/4-11 Class 4A quarterfinal game. Then at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dallas (9-1) hosts Prep (7-3) in a District 2 Class 3A semifinal. Admission for these games as well as all games involving two

D2 teams is $6 for adults and $4 for students in advance and at the gate. Prices are set by District 2. “The team we played in Week 1 was a very good football team,” said Valley West coach Pat Keating, whose Spartans defeated Scranton 21-7 in their opener. “They were very talented and now they’re playing even better.” Scranton showed signs of being a good team last year, but three losses by six points or less

resulted in a 3-7 record. The Knights stumbled to start this season, losing three of their first four. Since then, Scranton has been a different team. Starting with a 29-0 shutout of Prep, the Knights wiped out five consecutive opponents, including playoff qualifiers Delaware Valley and Wallenpaupack. They cooled off a bit last weekend, needing a fourthquarter touchdown to finally shake off a three-win Abington

Heights team 19-10. Running back Joe McCarthy has been dominant in recent weeks for Scranton. Quarterback Marlinn Waiters has developed nicely. Receiver Karlon Quiller came into the season as a known commodity and hasn’t disappointed. Fellow wideout Mike Marichak has proven to be another quality target. “They’re very similar to us,” See PLAYOFFS, Page 5B

Long-time coordinator has mixed emotions about job

McQueary won’t coach against Nebraska on Saturday

Resilient Bradley takes over By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

STATE COLLEGE -- Right at the apex of the most frantic and shocking week in program history, Tom Bradley was in his office. Like any other Wednesday night. Seeking normalcy through routine, Penn State’s defensive coordinator was studying film and devising strategy for Saturday’s game when his phone rang. On the other line was Rodney Erickson, who was just about to be officially announced as acting university president. And Bradley was about to be officially announced as interim head football coach. Bradley said he has mixed emotions but no reservations about stepping in for Joe Paterno, a man he said meant more to him than anyone except his father. When Bradley answered his phone at 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Erickson explained to him that Paterno and university president Graham Spanier had both been removed from their positions by the school’s board of trustees. “I was asked … to handle this, and I told them I would do it last night,” Bradley said Thursday morning at his introductory press conference at Beaver Stadium. “I will proceed in the manner that Penn State expects.

Tac’s Delight has absolutely been on fire for trainer Rene Allard, and I see nothing stopping this red-hot trainer from scoring his fifth straight victory. The six-year old gelded son of Self Possessed has just been devastating to say the least, winning each and every one of his last four starts by open lengths. But his last race here on October 28, was indeed the most impressive of them all. Leaving from post six, driver George Napolitano took book early on, before moving to the outside just before the half-mile marker. Tac’s Delight then exploded down the backside making a huge brush and grabbing the lead at the head of the lane before drawing away as the easiest of winners in a career best mile time of 1:52.4. He’s sharp and in good hands, and barring a miscue, I look for the connections of this trotter to once again be picture bound following that tenth race feature event. BEST BET: TAC’S DELIGHT (10TH) VALUE PLAY: UNIVERSAL DREAM N (5TH)

Mid Valley (6-4) at Wyoming Area (6-3) 7 p.m. today District 2 Class 2A Semifinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the Lakeland at GAR winner for the championship. The winner will host the title game if Lakeland wins or will be on the road if GAR wins. The Coaches: Mid Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Frank Pazzaglia (339-137-8, 43rd season); Wyoming Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Randy Spencer (20-21, 4th year) Last Meeting: never played Scouting Mid Valley: Pazzaglia has done an excellent job in his five years at Mid Valley after being shoved out the door following a long stint at Valley View. The Spartans have made the postseason two out of the last three years. Senior RB Antonio Russo has been a big reason for Mid Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. Russo, who has excellent speed but can also bull over defenders, set the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single-season rushing mark in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 43-0 victory over Montrose. He has 1,669 yards and 20 TDs on the ground. The Spartans will try to keep defenses honest by giving RB Chris Menerich about a half-dozen carries per game. WR Ron Tomasetti, a 6-foot-4 senior, creates mismatches on the outside and has caught 38 passes for 686 yards. All four losses have come to teams in the D2 playoffs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dunmore, GAR, Lakeland and Old Forge. Scouting Wyoming Area: The Warriors lost for the second time in three weeks, falling 24-21 to rival Pittston Area. A point of concern has to be how they allowed the two-win Patriots to steer the course of the game for good portions. QB/RB Nick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien rushed for 116 yards vs. Pittston Area, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score a TD for the first time this season. The elusive juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest run was 15 yards on the first of his 23 carries. RB Jeff Skursky scored twice, but had just 6 yards on six carries to snap a streak of three impressive games. On defense, the secondary gave up a season-high 162 yards through the air, including a 51-yard TD pass and a key 28-yard completion to set up Pittston Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game-winning touchdown. What To Expect: Wyoming Area can not play like last week and expect to win. The Warriors must dictate the tempo early, limit the damage Russo does and be cognizant of the dangerous Tomasetti.

Crestwood (8-2) at Valley View (9-1) 7 p.m. today District 2 Class 3A Semifinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the Scranton Prep at Dallas winner for the championship. The winner will be on the road if Dallas wins or at home if Prep wins. The Coaches: Crestwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greg Myers (41-43, 7th year); Valley Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s George Howanitz (28-25, 5th year) Last Meeting: Valley View 41-14 in 1997 Scouting Crestwood: The Comets had nothing to play for when they took the field last Saturday against Coughlin. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show as they defeated the Crusaders 28-16. RB Roger Legg led a diverse rushing attack with 115 yards, his most since Week 3, and two touchdowns. QB Nick Aigeldinger ran and threw the ball well, which was a good sign since he injured his shoulder a few weeks back. TE Vinny Genoble has been the main target the past two games. Aside from the Wyoming Valley West game, the defense has been solid against the run in the last six games. The unit also has six turnovers in the last two games, including interceptions by Aigeldinger and Tiler Black last week. Scouting Valley View: Valley View had little trouble with winless North Pocono last week, defeating the Trojans 48-7. In fact, the Cougars have had little trouble with any opponent, save the unexpected 7-6 loss to Scranton Prep three weeks ago. The defense is outstanding. Led by LB and Penn State recruit Nyeem Wartman, Valley View has three shutouts, allowed seven points five times and six points once. The Cougars allowed a seasonhigh nine points in their opener, but seven of those were scored by East Stroudsburg North late in the game. Valley View relies offensively on RBs Tyler Phillips and Pat Jeffers. Phillips is over 1,200 yards while Jeffers could hit 1,000 with a solid game. QB Liam Callejas isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throwing as much as last year, but nonetheless is effective putting the ball in the air. What To Expect: Both teams seemed to be built for this season. Crestwood, though, will need to play flawlessly in order to pull off a huge upset.

Lakeland (5-5) at GAR (9-1) 7 p.m. today District 2 Class 2A Semifinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the Mid Valley at Wyoming Area winner for the championship. GAR will host the title game if it wins. Lakeland will be on the road with a victory. The Coaches: Lakelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jeff Wasilchak (129-53, 15th year); GARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paul Wiedlich Jr. (20-3, 2nd year) Last Meeting: Lakeland 34-31 on Sept. 16 Scouting Lakeland: The Chiefs clinched the final D2-2A playoff spot by defeating Western Wayne 30-20 last week. Western Wayne helped the cause by making six turnovers. The victory snapped a threegame losing streak. GAR received a heavy dose of Lakelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-two running punch in the first meeting. RB Ryan Nichols rushed for 235 yards and two TDs in that game. FB Tyler Brady added 153 more. Despite the strong running attack, the Chiefs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to throw the ball. QB Kyle Kiehart has attempted 15 or more passes five times. He has also had his moments running the ball. The only non-playoff team Lakeland has lost to was Honesdale 20-19 in Week 8. Scouting GAR: GAR enters off a 38-6 victory over rival Meyers. It was a pretty mundane win, with the Grenadiers dominating as expected. RB Dwayne Wright had his first 100-yard game of his career, rushing for 101 and a TD on just seven carries. GARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only loss of the season came to Lakeland in Week 3. However, the Grenadiers were without do-everything QB Darrell Crawford, who was injured, and standout DE/OL Shakir Soto, who was suspended after being ejected the previous week. Backup QB Corey Moore played admirably, throwing for 308 yards, and since then GAR has used him at quarterback and Crawford at receiver a few times. The defense was shredded for a season-high 402 yards rushing. Stopping the run has been a problem that has popped up more than once for GAR. What To Expect: Much like the Sept. 16 game, there should be plenty of scoring. GAR, though, has the revenge factor on its side and should be able to pull out the victory.

Northwest (6-4) at Mahanoy Area (6-4) 7 p.m. today Eastern Conference Class A Semifinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the Pottsville Nativity at Bucktail winner for the championship. The winner will host the game if Nativity wins or be on the road if Bucktail wins. The Coaches: Northwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carl Majer (28-16, 4th year); Mahanoy Areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wally Hill (16-16, 3rd year) Last Meeting: Mahanoy Area 54-0 in 1999 Scouting Northwest: Northwest had its District 2 playoff hopes sealed Week 9 when Riverside won. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the Rangers from dominating Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech 56-0 in their season finale. It could have been worse, but Majer started subbing in the second quarter. Northwest scored on three consecutive offensive plays in the first half and did the same in the second half. RBs Tony Politz and Austin Mazonkey trampled the Vo-Tech defense. QB Gunner Majer threw a TD pass, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do much more than hand off the ball. Scouting Mahanoy Area: The Golden Bears will be defending their Eastern Conference title after missing the District 11 playoffs by 30 state points. Their losses came to teams that are a combined 31-9, including a one-point loss to unbeaten North Schuylkill. Mahanoy Area fumbled away a chance at districts last week in a 39-34 loss to Shenandoah Valley. QB Mike Gawal had yet another strong game running and passing the ball for the high-powered offensive attack. RB Neal Goodman is another guy to keep an eye on. What To Expect: Looks like a good matchup on paper. What transpires on the field could be much different.

Scranton Prep (7-3) at Dallas (9-1) 1 p.m. Saturday District 2 Class 3A Semifinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the Crestwood at Valley View winner for the championship. Dallas will host the title game if it wins. Prep will be on the road with a victory. The Coaches: Prepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Donato (137-83-2, 20th season); Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ted Jackson (226-81-3, 27th year) Last Meeting: Dallas 48-20 on Sept. 9 Scouting Prep: Prep looked out of the playoff picture at 3-3, then won its next three by a combined eight points, including a 7-6 win over D2-3A favorite Valley View. The Cavaliers clinched a playoff spot when Tom Timlin completed a short TD pass to TE Pat Fricke with 26 seconds left for a 22-16 victory over West Scranton. Timlin threw five interceptions in that game and two against Dallas, one of which was returned 83 yards by Brett Wanek for a touchdown. The Cavaliers moved the ball well enough against Dallas, but failed to capitalize. RB Marshall Kupinski had 92 yards on 17 carries in the first meeting and versatile J.J. Fives made five catches for 81 yards. Scouting Dallas: Dallas had its hands full early with rival Lake-Lehman last week, but after Paul Brace returned a blocked field goal attempt for a touchdown the Mountaineers were on their way to a 42-7 win. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve scored 41 or more points six times this season. In the victory over Prep in Week 2, RB Jim Roccograndi ran for a career-high 262 yards and three TDs on just 11 carries. QB Ryan Zapoticky threw for 170 yards, a high that held up until he tossed for 173 in Week 8 vs. Pocono Mountain East. The Prep game was the first of four Brace missed with a foot injury, but since returning he has caught 13 passes. He is also an excellent cover man on defense. What To Expect: The game should be closer than last time unless Prep turns over the ball like it did against West Scranton. Dallas wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t squander those chances like the Invaders did last week.

Coughlin (5-5) at Berwick (7-3) 7 p.m. today Eastern Conference 3A Semifinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the Blue Mountain at Southern Lehigh winner for the championship. Coughlin will be on the road with a victory, while Berwick will host the title game with a win. The Coaches: Coughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ciro Cinti (35-30, 6th year); Berwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gary Campbell (127-47-1, 13th year) Last Meeting: Berwick 26-21 on Oct. 28 Scouting Coughlin: Coughlin was in contention for a D2-3A playoff spot entering last week, but by the time the Crusaders took the field Saturday night they were eliminated. After the 28-16 loss to Crestwood, Cinti indicated that team harmony isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t where it should be. Coughlin moved standout RB Joe Parsnik to quarterback, a position he started at early in the 2010 season. The results were mixed. Parsnik rushed for 115 yards, his lowest total in the last five games. The benefit to the passing game was negligible. It will be up to him and FB Zac Evans to pace the offense. They combined for 257 yards the last time the Crusaders visited Crispin Field. Scouting Berwick: Berwick was eliminated from the D2-3A playoffs when Scranton Prep scored with 26 seconds remaining to get the final spot. Still, the Dawgs ride a six-game winning streak into the game. RB Jeremy Freeman carries the workload and had 123 yards and three TDs in the last game with Coughlin. QB Jared Pierce has done a nice job picking his spots to throw. Alex Klinger has led the team the last two games with five receptions. If the game comes down to kicking, the Dawgs have one of the best in the area in Alex Oliver, who has connected on five field goals including a school-record 45 yarder this year. What To Expect: Coughlin canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall behind by two touchdowns like it did in the last game against Berwick because the Crusaders arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t built to score quickly. Expect another grind-it-out affair with the team running the ball the best winning the game.

PLAYOFF GLANCE DISTRICT 2/4-11 CLASS 4A

Scranton (7-3) at Wyoming Valley West (9-1) 7 p.m. today District 2/4-11 Class 4A Quarterfinal Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s At Stake: The winner plays the winner of the Bethlehem Freedom (8-2) at Easton (8-2) game next weekend. Scranton will be on the road if it wins, Valley West will be home with a victory. The Coaches: Scrantonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Marichak (20-20, 4th year); Valley Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Keating (22-10, 3rd year) Last Meeting: Valley West 21-7 on Sept. 2 Scouting Scranton: Scranton was heading to the also-ran category after starting 1-3, but since then the Knights have galloped to six consecutive wins. Those victories include routs of playoff qualifiers Scranton Prep, Delaware Valley and Wallenpaupack. RB Joe McCarthy, a Division I prospect in baseball, has run roughshod over opponents during the winning streak. He had 44 yards when the teams played in the season opener. QB Marlinn Waiters has picked up his game as well. WR Karlon Quiller is considered one of the best in the area. He has 24 catches for 692 yards and seven TDs. WR Mike Marichak, the coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, also is a viable pass-catching option. During the six-game winning streak, the Knights have a shutout

and allowed 10 or fewer points five times. They led 43-14 against Delaware Valley in a 51-21 victory in Week 8. Scouting Valley West: Since losing 28-27 to Dallas, where Valley West committed a season-high five turnovers, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fairly smooth sailing for the Spartans. They spotted Williamsport an early score last week and then ran over the Millionaires 49-18. QB Eugene Lewis topped 1,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing in the game for the second season in a row. RB Tashawn Bunch rushed for two career highs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 282 yards and four TDs. The receiving corps of Dylan Flayhart, Derrick Simms and Lucky Williams is among the deepest in the area. TE Chris Coleman has also made timely catches, although blocking is his main job. The defense is playing well and will be up against a small but experienced Scranton offensive line. What To Expect: A late hit led to a fight the last time the teams met and Quiller and Williams being ejected. Emotions will be running high again as two teams with plenty of momentum collide.

NCAA says it will monitor Penn State sex case By MIKE JENSEN The Philadelphia Inquirer

NCAA president Mark Emmert said Thursday that the national governing body would look into whether Penn State had broken NCAA bylaws in the child sexual abuse scandal that has toppled coach Joe Paterno as well as the school’s president and athletic director. “Regarding the ongoing Penn State criminal investigation, the NCAA is actively monitoring developments and assessing appropriate steps moving forward,” Emmert said in a statement. “The NCAA will defer in the immediate term to law enforcement officials since this situation involved alleged crimes. As the facts are established through the justice system, we will determine whether Association bylaws have been violated and act accordingly.” In an interview Thursday with ESPN, Emmert called the arrest of former Penn State defensive

time member of Penn State’s coaching staff since 1980, succeeded Sandusky as defensive coordinator after Sandusky retired in 1999. Bradley would not address questions pertaining to the Sandusky investigation, saying that he had been advised by legal counsel not to comment. He would only say that he had not been aware of allegations originally made against Sandusky in 1998 and 2002. Though Paterno is now removed from the program, ousted in the midst of his 46th season as head coach, the rest of the coaching staff will remain basically intact headed into Saturday’s game against Nebraska. The lone exception will be wide receivers coach Mike McQueary, who was a key figure in the grand jury investigation into Sandusky. According to the grand jury report, McQueary saw Sandusky engaged in sexual conduct with a young boy in a shower at the team’s headquarters in 2002. The report said McQueary informed Paterno, who took the matter to then-athletic director Tim Curley. McQueary will not be at the game due to numerous threats made against him, according to Penn State’s official athletics website. Curley and another top official, Gary Schultz, have been charged with lying to the grand jury about what they were told by McQueary. Both Curley and

pen.” Reeling from the latest bit of stunning news in a week that has been full of it, Penn State players somberly filed out of the team’s Lasch Building headquarters, trying to move forward without Paterno at the helm of the program forthefirsttimeinnearly50years. “To have him leave now,” senior captain Derek Moye said, “is heartbreaking.” Many players learned of Paterno’s ousting by watched the hastily called press conference on TV along with the ensuing chaos that broke out in the streets. “The board of trustees had their meeting. I’m sure everybody on campus was watching,” quarterback Matt McGloin said. “That’s pretty much the way we found out. “I probably watched it for four hours. Just couldn’t fall asleep. Couldn’t get much rest. Talked to my family, friends ... it’s tough. It’s really tough. But Coach would want us to focus on the game.” That was the message Bradley delivered at a short and to-thepoint meeting of about 10 minutes, telling players, “This is your team. Not the coaches’ team. Not the university’s team.” The players’ team. “It was quiet,” linebacker Nate

coordinator Jerry Sandusky on child-molestation charges “easily the worst scandal I’ve ever seen or even heard of in intercollegiate athletics. ... You can’t read the 23page testimony without having your stomach turn and ask yourself, ’How in the world does this happen?’” Last week, Sandusky was charged with 40 criminal counts of molesting eight young boys between 1994 and 2009 — some of them inside Penn State’s athletic facilities — through his charitable foundation for at-risk youths, the Second Mile. On Monday, Penn State’s athletic director, Tim Curley, and a vice president, Gary Schultz, were charged with failing to notify authorities after an eyewitness reported a 2002 assault. On Wednesday, Penn State’s board of trustees relieved Paterno and university president Graham Spanier of their duties, effective immediately. Both men have maintained that they were not Schultz have since stepped down from their positions, with Curley considered to be on administrative leave. Both men along with Sandusky have maintained their innocence through their attorneys. Though Paterno and McQueary have not been charged with any crime, both have been under fire for not doing more than notifying their superiors of the alleged incident. With Paterno fired, McQueary remains the lone person related to the incident still on staff. A former Penn State quarterback, McQueary is an important figure on the Penn State sideline, relaying play calls from the coaches’ booth down to the players on the field. Bradley announced that defensive line coach Larry Johnson and linebackers coach Ron Vanderlinden would serve as co-defensive coordinators. Graduate assistant Elijah Robinson has been promoted to a full-time coach. After all of that was taken care of, Bradley made a phone call to Paterno at around 11 p.m. Wednesday, though he would not go into any detail about the conversation, calling it “personal.” Indeed, the rare occasions where Bradley broke from a stoic demeanor came when talking about Paterno, the man he called “Coach” since 1975. “Coach Paterno has meant more to me than anybody except my father,” Bradley said. “I don’t want to get emotional and start talking about that.” Later, though, when asked what he thought Paterno’s legaStupar said. “Scrap (Bradley) just came up to the podium and just kind of talked about, ‘Hey, Joe got kicked out. Nothing’s changed. We still gotta stay focused.’” “He didn’t want to say too much,” Morris said. “He just said, ‘Look, there’s nothing I can do. I can’t put on pads for y’all. I can coach y’all, but, at the same time, it’s your team.’” Theplayerssaidalloftheassistant coaches were in attendance. After Bradley spoke, team captains held a brief players-only meeting. Those captains said Bradley, the team’s long-time defensive coordinator, called them all Wednesday night shortly after he wastoldhewouldbereplacingPaterno. “He was just telling us, ‘Guys, I’ve been placed in this position, and I really don’t know what I’m doing right now, but I’m gonna do what I can and what I know, and I’m going to need your guys’ help,’” said tackle Quinn Barham, one of the team captains. Penn State hosts Nebraska on Saturday. It will be the first game since1949 that the Lions will play a game without Paterno on staff. “It’s definitely tough. It’s an emotional day for Penn State,” McGloinsaid.“Butit’sonlygonna be a distraction if we let it be a distraction. “Joe’sthetypeofguythatwould want us to focus on the game, and that’s what we’re gonna do.”

cognizant of all the details of Sandusky’s alleged crimes. Former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer expressed doubt about assertions that the coaching staff was surprised by the breadth of the accusations. “Having been in this profession a long time and knowing how close coaching staffs are, I knew that this was a secret that was kept secret,” the one-time Paterno antagonist told the Daily Oklahoman. “Everyone on that staff had to have known, the ones that had been around a long time.” Switzer said he felt terrible for Paterno, but Penn State had no choice but to let him go. If the NCAA looks at sanctioning Penn State, it appears it would include looking at NCAA Bylaw 2.4, on “principles of sportsmanship and ethical conduct,” which calls for “intercollegiate athletics to promote the character development of participants ... . These values should be manifest not only in athletics par-

ticipation but also in the broad spectrum of activities affecting the athletics program.” This broad bylaw typically has been used to regulate behavior such as trash-talking during a game. It appears to be unprecedented to use the bylaw to penalize an institution over ethical conduct. But this obviously is an unprecedented circumstance that has unfolded in State College. Nathan Tublitz, a biology professor at the University of Oregon and former cochairman of the Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics, an association of faculty senates at 60 universities that works to better integrate athletics into university mission, had several questions on the matter. “One question that I think should be asked: Would this situation have occurred — not the alleged crime itself, but the response to the alleged crime ... I wonder if that would have happened in the communications department or the biology depart-

ment? My guess it would have been unfolded very differently,” Tublitz said. Like many, Tublitz wondered whether this was a tipping point where real change, wider change, is affected.

“Number one, it’s Penn State,” Tublitz said in a telephone interview. “Penn State has been held up in this country as doing sports right. Number two, and I will say they are alleged crimes, but the alleged crimes are horrific.”

So now what, Penn State? Football coach Joe Paterno has been fired. President Graham Spanier is out. Thousands of students embarrassed themselves (and, I hope, their tuitionpaying parents) by rioting in protest. A child-molestation scandal has tarnished the university’s reputation, and thrown the football program into turmoil, and I’m sure we can agree: That isn’t even the real story here. The victims are the story. Jerry Sandusky, Paterno’s former assistant, allegedly molested one young boy after another. Paterno, Spanier and Penn State could have put a stop to it years ago. Through cowardice or paralysis, they failed. A week ago, casual football fans knew three things about Penn State. One is that Paterno had coached there forever. Now he is gone. The second was that Penn State had the blandest uniforms in the sport, so boring that they have become iconic and charming. And the third was the chant you hear at every game: “We are! Penn State!” Now I want to know: Who are you, Penn State? The school cannot undo the damage. It cannot heal the victims or step back in time. But Penn State can show that this incident, and those riots, do not reflect the values of the community. The school can go from not doing enough to prevent child molestation to being a leader in stopping it. Start with those uniforms. Blue ribbons with “Stop Child Abuse” written on them have become popular on campus. Penn State can put a picture of the ribbon on the uniforms — or better yet, on those plain white helmets — for the rest of the season. Schools adorn their uniforms with Nike swooshes and Adidas logos, and corn-chip and shipping-company logos during bowl season. They change designs and even colors to sell a few more jerseys. I think it is reasonable to ask Penn State to make this small alteration at a

OPINION MICHAEL ROSENBERG time of crisis. And then the school can put its money where its values are supposed to be. A group of Penn State alumni is trying to raise money for the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (you can donate at http://rainn.org/ProudPSUforRAINN). The alums want to raise more than $500,000, or roughly one dollar for each Penn State alum. It’s a great idea, but the school can do even better. Beaver Stadium holds more than 100,000 people. What if Penn State donated all of its gate receipts for this weekend’s game to help prevent child abuse? That would be millions, and it would be a start. The school can become a leader in raising awareness of pedophilia — and in de-stigmatizing both the victims and those who witness incidents. Paterno came of age at a time when it was common to hide from these situations rather than confront them. Times have changed, but the Sandusky saga shows we have not come far enough. Some have suggested that Penn State forfeit this weekend’s game against Nebraska, or forfeit the rest of the season. I understand the sentiment, but I don’t agree with it. Forfeiting the game would not be fair to the Penn State players, who have done absolutely nothing wrong. It wouldn’t be fair to the Nebraska players, who have worked all year so that they could play these games. It wouldn’t even be fair to the other teams in the league, like Michigan State, which is battling Nebraska in the Legends division. Play the game. Use the game. Use it to launch a campaign that will stop the next Jerry Sandusky. Penn State can’t change its past, but it can shape its future. Michael Rosenberg is columnist for the Detroit Free Press.

Pens get some help on way to Hershey

Thomas, Wilson lead Va. Tech

By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Logan Thomas accounted for five touchdowns, David Wilson rushed for a career-best 175 yards and No. 10 Virginia Tech took a huge step toward the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, beating No. 20 Georgia Tech 37-26 Thursday night. Thomas threw three touchdown passes and ran for two more scores. Wilson had his seventh straight 100-yard game, already the longest streak of Frank Beamer’s quarter-century as coach. The teams went back and forth through the second and third quarters, scoring on eight of nine possessions in one stretch. But Virginia Tech (9-1, 5-1 ACC) took advantage of a huge personal foul on Jeremiah Attaochu and a fourth-down gamble by Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson that didn’t pay off. The Yellow Jackets (7-3, 4-3) were eliminated from the Coastal Division race. Georgia Tech quarterback Tevin Washington ran for three touchdowns, but the Hokies took the lead for good on Thomas’ 12-yard run in the final minute of the third quarter. The play was typical for the 6-foot-6, 254-pound sophomore, who simply lowered his head and bulled his way to the end zone. The Yellow Jackets simply couldn’t bring him down. That touchdown was set up by Attaochu’s huge blunder, which extended a possession that seemed to be over deep in Virginia Tech territory. On thirdand-19 from his own 17, Thomas was flushed out of the pocket and corralled by several Georgia Tech defenders. But he wouldn’t go down and, apparently out of frustration, Attaochu threw a punch into the side of the quarterback’s helmet. Instead of a knockout, he drew a personal foul gave Virginia Tech a first down — and very well could lead to a suspension for Attaochu after the ACC reviews the play. More important on this night, Wilson got loose for a 44-yard run and Thomas scored on a third-and-1 play that was designed to merely pick up the first down. He took it all the way to the end zone, giving the Hokies a 27-26 lead after a twopoint pass was incomplete. Then, it was Johnson who left himself open to second guessing when he decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 at his own 31. Washington tried to get it on a keeper, but he was stopped about a foot short. For there, Virginia Tech moved in for the kill. The Hokies converted their own fourthand-1, but that was an easier to call with make with Thomas to carry it. He bulled his way for a 5-yard gain, then hooked up with Chris Drager on his first career touchdown, a 14-yard pass on third down that made it 34-26. Cody Journell sealed the victory, knocking through a 23-yard field goal with 3:02 remaining.

Keating said. “They’re not huge; they’re a very athletic team. They have multiple weapons that can beat you.” Quarterback Eugene Lewis and running back Tashawn Bunch, a pair of 1,000-yard rushers with a combined 42 rushing TDs, get the most of the credit for Valley West’s record. However, the key will be up front. Center Matt Perugino, guards Tony Le and Matt Reams and tackles P.J. Cwalina and Kyle Phillips don’t form the biggest offensive line around at the Class 4A level.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer sets to throw a pass in the second quarter against the San Diego Chargers in an NFL game on Thursday.

Palmer leads Raiders By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

SAN DIEGO — Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes and Michael Bush ran 30 times for a season-high 157 yards and one touchdown to lead the Oakland Raiders to a 24-17 win over San Diego on Thursday night, the Chargers’ fourth straight loss. The Raiders (5-4) broke a two-game losing streak and took a half-game lead over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. Palmer looked much better in making his second start and third appearance since being acquired in a trade with Cincinnati, throwing touchdown passes of 33 and 26 yards to Denarius Moore. He’d been semi-retired and living in Del Mar, just north of San Diego, before being traded. Palmer was 14 for 20 for 299 yards, with one interception. The Chargers (4-5) looked

dismal most of the night and lost left tackle Marcus McNeill, right guard Louis Vasquez and linebacker Takeo Spikes to injuries. San Diego inside linebacker Takeo Spikes sustained a concussion late in the first half and didn’t return. Chargers guard Louis Vasquez injured his ankle and was doubtful to return. The bumbling Chargers managed just three first downs in the first half. Rivers was 4 for 11 with 44 yards and got sacked three times. They had four consecutive three-and-out drives before Rivers was sacked on San Diego’s final possession of the half. Oakland wide receiver Jacoby Ford sustained a foot injury on the Raiders’ first TD drive. He was helped off the field and was questionable to return. Both teams were playing on short rest, each having lost Sunday.

NBA LABOR DISPUTE

Talks break down; players to regroup By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — NBA players broke off negotiations with the league Thursday night, saying there had not been enough progress to get a deal done to end the lockout. The league offered the players a revised offer after nearly 11 hours of bargaining, but union president Derek Fisher said it doesn’t address all the necessary system issues that are important to the players. “There’s not enough progress to get a deal done,” Fisher said. “That’s the disappointing part. We want to get back on the court.” Now, the union will regroup, talk to their player representatives, figure out what to do next and possibly resume negotiations with the league next week. “Obviously, we would like to

keep negotiating and find a way to get a deal done,” Fisher said. “But right now it’s not that time.” Beyond the salary cap system issues that divide the sides, union executive director Billy Hunter said there were six pages of what he called ancillary items, such as the draft age and the commissioner’s disciplinary rights, that still must be addressed before a deal. Hunter said they would try to bring the player representatives to New York by Monday or Tuesday to decide what the next step is, and whether the current offer is acceptable. “It’s not the greatest proposal in the world, but I have an obligation to at least present it to our membership and so that’s what we’re going to do,” Hunter said. It will be better than the

downs on two of its four first-half possessions. The Cavaliers also had a 16-play drive that put the ball at the Dallas 2-yard line at one point before they turned over the ball on downs. The game turned on Prep’s first possession of the third quarter when there seemed to be a miscommunication between a receiver and quarterback Tom Timlin. The result was Dallas defensive back Brett Wanek returning an interception 83 yards for a touchdown.

“We made some big plays right before the half and right after the half which made a separation in the score,” Dallas coach Ted Jackson said. “But we’ve tried to impress on the kids that Valley View is as good a team as anywhere and (Prep) just shut them down. Delaware Valley is a great team and they beat them.” Timlin threw five picks in last week’s 22-16 victory over West Scranton, Prep’s fourth consecutive victory by six points or less. However, he came up big when

one that Stern had waiting: a 53-47 split of revenues in the owners’ favor, a flex cap with a hard ceiling, and salary rollbacks. The union had nearly its entire executive committee in attendance, with Fisher and executive director Billy Hunter joined by players Chris Paul, Maurice Evans, Roger Mason Jr., Keyon Dooling, Theo Ratliff, Etan Thomas, Matt Bonner; attorneys Jeffrey Kessler and Ron Klempner, and economist Kevin Murphy. Management stuck with the same small group as Wednesday: Commissioner David Stern, Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, Spurs owner Peter Holt, the chairman of the labor relations committee, and attorneys Rick Buchanan and Dan Rube. “It’s been a long haul,” Hunter said. needed, connecting with tight end Pat Fricke on a short gamewinning TD pass with 26 seconds remaining. Like the Scranton at Valley West game, Dallas and Prep have deep, talented skill groups that come at opponents from various directions. And like the Class 4A matchup, it could come down to how Dallas’ line of center F.J. Constantino, guards Logan Bullock and Zach Taylor and tackles Ryan Monk, Buddy Shutlock performs. “They’re a little more physical up front,” Jackson said of one of Prep’s biggest difference since the September meeting. “When you hold Valley View to six points, you’re doing something right. We’ve been impressed with their linebackers, their offensive and defensive lines and they have skill kids on the perimeter that can catch and run.”

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins will look to extend their seven-game winning streak tonight what they take on the Hershey Bears on the road. And they’ll have a little help to get it done. On Tuesday, Pittsburgh sent down forwards Dustin Jeffrey and Steve MacIntyre for conditioning assignments. Jeffrey suited up for Wednesday’s win in Norfolk and he spent parts of the last three seasons with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, totaling 52 goals and 153 points in 181 games. Last season he had 45 points in 40 games before spending the rest of the year with Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-6, 265-pound MacIntyre also skated with the Penguins on Wednesday and posted nine penalty minutes, including a fighting major. On the season, the Penguins are 2-1 against Hershey and a perfect 7-0 in road games. Goaltender Brad Thiessen is a big reason for the Penguins success both against the Bears and on the road. In three starts against Hershey, Thiessen has allowed only four goals, posted a shutout in the last meeting and has a goals against average of 1.34 and a .943 save percentage. Thiessen has also allowed nine goals in

Letestu sent to Columbus

Former WBS Penguin Mark Letestu was traded by Pittsburgh to Columbus on Tuesday for a fourth-round draft pick in the 2012 NHL draft. Letestu spent parts of four seasons with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton from 2007 to 2010, scoring 51 goals and 134 points in 191 games. - Late Thursday, the Pittsburgh Penguins recalled Eric Tangradi from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. - The Penguins will hold their second annual “Pens & Pins” Charity Bowling Tournament on Sunday, Dec. 4, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Chacko’s Family Bowling Center, Wilkes-Barre.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton players and coaches will be chosen randomly to captain five-person teams of fans in a two-game format. Tickets are $50 and include two games of bowling, free shoe rental, pizza and soda and a commemorative 2011 “Pens & Pins” T-shirt. Tickets can purchased by calling the Penguins at (570) 208-PUCK.

Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kelly, Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edsall are both under heavy pressure By DON MARKUS The Baltimore Sun

If any of his coaching peers can relate to what Randy Edsall is going through in his first season at Maryland, it is the man who will be on the opposing sideline Saturday night at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. Like Edsall, Brian Kelly came to a more high-profile position â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in the case of Notre Dame, one of the most highly scrutinized in the country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after having succeed-

ed at a Big East school. And, as Edsall has already experienced in his first 10 months in College Park, many wondered whether Kelly was the right man for the job. Some still do. Though recent victories over Navy and Wake Forest have helped soften the mood since Kelly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like Edsall â&#x20AC;&#x201D; questioned the talent he inherited in South Bend from Charlie Weis when he was hiredbeforelastseason,thecoach

who built Cincinnati and two smaller programs into perennial winners believes it is part of what most coaches go through when changing jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a philosophy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been laid down, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way of doing things, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming in â&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not smarter than anybody else, you just do it differently,â&#x20AC;? Kelly said during his weekly news conference Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it a certain way for so long and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been certain per-

sonalities talking to them, there are different voices. Different philosophies on how you want to succeed. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a transition there; it just takes time. Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patient. I understand that.â&#x20AC;? What Kelly has encountered in his first two seasons goes beyond the less-than-spectacular 14-8 record, including a 1-3 start in 2010 and the 0-2 start this season. It includes the tragic death last season of a student videographer who was thrown from a scissor lift that

had been buffeted by 60 mphwinds. It also includes Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s verbal misstep when he insulted several players, including his defensive star. Though Declan Sullivanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father said he never considered suing Kelly or the university, questions linger about Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repeating his success with the Bearcats, whom he led to a12-0 record and a Bowl Championship Series appearance in 2009. Fans and players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially those he trashed

and later apologized to at a team meeting the day before the team played Navy on Oct. 29 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; remain divided. The jury is still out on whether Kelly can exceed, or even match, the success of Weis and some of his other predecessors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You had (Ara) Parseghian, you had (Dan) Devine, then you had Lou Holtz, and the expectations were really high after Holtz,â&#x20AC;? Kurt Hoffman, a longtime Notre Dame fan, said.

Police find vehicle used in kidnapping By IAN JAMES Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela — Officials said Thursday they have found the vehicle used by armed men who abducted Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos, a case that highlights a sharp rise in kidnappings for ransom in Venezuela. Police found the kidnappers’ vehicle abandoned in a nearby town Thursday morning and were gathering evidence, Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami told reporters. “It’s a very important find,” he said, vowing to rescue Ramos and capture his abductors. He said anti-kidnapping units led by “the best investigators we have” were dispatched to the area in central Carabobo state. The 24-year-old Venezuelan player, who had just finished his rookie season, was seized from his home in the town of Santa Ines by kidnappers on Wednesday night. “The abductors haven’t made contact with the family or with anyone,” said Domingo Alvarez, vice president of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League, in a telephone interview. “We’re worried.” Ramos was taken away in an SUV by four armed men from his home, spokeswoman Katherine Vilera of his Venezuelan team, the Aragua Tigers, said on her official Twitter account. Police last year said that 618 kidnappings were reported in 2009, and the numbers have grown rapidly in recent years. In 1998, when President Hugo Chavez was elected, just 52 kidnappings were reported. Security experts say the real number of kidnappings today is much higher because many cases aren’t reported to authorities. The wealthy in Venezuela have taken steps to protect themselves; sales of armored

Workers uncover the basketball floor to be used for the Carrier Classic on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson Thursday in San Diego, Calif. North Carolina and Michigan State will play the first Carrier Classic basketball game on the flight deck of the ship today.

Carrier is all decked out for game By BERNIE WILSON AP Sports Writer

CORONADO, Calif. — The aircraft carrier that buried Osama bin Laden at sea is ready for the first college basketball game to be played on an active flat top. As long as the rain stays away from the Carrier Classic on the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson today afternoon, coaches Tom Izzo of Michigan State and Roy Williams of No. 1 North Carolina are confident their teams will put on a great Veterans Day show for the approximately 7,000 in the crowd, including the nation’s basketball-fan-inchief, President Barack Obama, plus a national TV audience. Izzo and Williams said they and their players were blown away when they boarded the nuclear-powered carrier, which stretches 1,092 feet, weighs 95,000 tons and has four steam catapults that can accelerate a

jet fighter from 0 to 165 mph in just more than two seconds. “My first impression when I walked in far superseded whatever I thought it could be, and we’ve been talking about this for seven or eight years,” Izzo said Thursday aboard the carrier, which is berthed at North Island Naval Air Station. “If you could have seen our players’ eyes as we walked in, you just had such an appreciation for what we’re doing. It’s bigger than a game. It’s bigger than North Carolina against Michigan State. It’s kind of a dream come true for us. In a small, small way, I think we feel we’re giving a little bit back and maybe recognizing the people that deserve to be recognized, instead of just the athletes.” The game, a rematch of the 2009 national championship game won by North Carolina, was conceived to celebrate Veterans Day and salute active-duty military personnel.

“Wow,” Williams said about his reaction to seeing the ship and the basketball court. The island, which serves as the command center for the ship and flight-deck operations, looms just 50 feet from one end of the court. For some high enough in the stands, there’s a view of the San Diego skyline across the bay. Williams said his players’ eyes and mouths were wide open as they walked around the flight deck after arriving in San Diego on Wednesday. “This is a celebration,” Williams said. “The basketball game, from the tipoff till the final horn, we’re going to be working our tails off about the game. But every single second prior to it and as soon as the game’s final horn is over with, we’re thinking about hopefully putting a smile on some people’s faces who represent our country and serve our country.

“I’m as thrilled as I could possibly be,” Williams said. “They’re not fake — I’ve got cold chills up here talking about it. It’s the neatest thing that I’ve ever been involved with.” Forecasts earlier in the week suggested that a storm might hit around tipoff. But based on updated forecasts, the game will be played on the flight deck, said Mike Whalen of Morale Entertainment Foundation, which is organizing the game. The coaches shrugged off suggestions that playing outdoors, with possible wind gusts, would be a concern. ‘’I would be willing to bet 90 percent of our players will be thrilled to death to do something that nobody else has ever done,” Izzo said. “That’s the uniqueness of this, too. There are a lot of great players, a lot of great programs, but you talk about a memory-maker, there’s been no player that’s ever done something like this.

cars have soared in the past several years. Bodyguards typically shadow Major League Baseball playRamos ers when they return to their homeland to play in the winter league. “Every Major League player has his own security, but we don’t know if at that time he had his security there,” Alvarez said. He said it’s the first time a Major League player has been abducted in the country, though other players’ relatives have been held for ransom in the past. A person close to Ramos’ family, who asked not to be identified by name due to safety concerns, said the catcher was at home with his father and brothers when several men “entered the house and took him away.” Drew Storen, a relief pitcher for the Nationals, tweeted his concerns: “Extremely upsetting news about Ramo. Thoughts and prayers with him. Scary situation.” Ramos is considered one of the key young players for the Nationals as they try to become a contender in the National League East. As a rookie in 2011, he hit .267 with 15 home runs and 52 RBIs in 113 games. He also threw out 19 of 67 runners attempting to steal a base, a 28 percent success rate that ranked third among qualifying catchers in the National League. Washington acquired Ramos from the Minnesota Twins in a trade for All-Star relief pitcher Matt Capps in July 2010. Venezuela is home to dozens of major league players and Alvarez said they are increasingly worried about the rise in kidnappings. Relatives of several players already have been seized.

PRO GOLF

Lyle leads field in Sydney; Tiger finally looking sharp

By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SYDNEY — Tiger Woods played his first bogey-free round in nine months, a big development in any tournament he plays. It nearly got lost Thursday in the Australian Open, which featured an albatross from Adam Scott and another meltdown for John Daly. Jarrod Lyle had a 7-under 65 at The Lakes for a one-shot lead over Dustin Johnson and Nick Watney, two of the eight Americans tuning up for the Presidents Cup next week. Thousands of fans who stood atop sand dunes had reason to be impressed with Woods in his first tournament in Sydney in 15 years. He hit the ball clean, usually where he was aiming and rarely got in trouble in blustery conditions for a 4-under 68, his lowest score to par in the first round of any tournament this year. The last time he played bogey-free was the second round of the Dubai Desert Classic on Feb. 11. “I hit it really good today,” Woods said. “It was rewarding that I hit the just like I have at home.” Even so, most of the fans following him missed all the excitement. There was quite a buzz as Woods headed to the eighth tee. The gallery looked down the fairway on the 550-yard par 5 to see Scott celebrating a 6-iron from 220 yards downwind that landed 10 feet in front of the cup and went in for an albatross. That helped the Australian overcome a sloppy start and sent him to a 69. It was his first albatross since he was 17 in the Greg Norman Junior Masters. “That’s quite a while between drinks,” Scott said. “It gave me a boost, for sure. There were a lot of people there, and a lot of hands went in the air.” Two groups behind Woods was Daly, who doesn’t have a pretty record Down Under and it got downright ugly. It started on the short par-4 10th when Daly tried to drive the green. He thought his ball was in the front bunker, but after blasting out to about 4 feet, he realized he had hit a practice ball from the adjacent range. That’s when he was told his

ball was in the back bunker, and with a penalty shot and a three-putt, he wound up with a triple bogey. Daly was annoyed, then hit his second on the par-5 11th into the water. Then he hit another into the lake. And another. And another. The final tally was seven balls, and it might have been more except that he had none left in his bag. Daly turned over his scorecard to Hunter Mahan and Craig Parry and walked off the course. Daly later said on Twitter, “when u run out of balls u run out of balls. yes, I shook my player’s partners hands & signed my card w/rules official.” In 2002, Daly threw his putter into the pond and failed to sign for a 78 at the Australian PGA, and he was fine $5,600. Two years ago, he smashed a spectator’s camera into a tree at Royal Sydney during the Australian Open. The rap sheet is even longer in the United States, from his 18 on the sixth hole at Bay Hill to the time he swatted a moving ball on the turtleback greens of Pinehurst No. 2 in the 1999 U.S. Open.

Pa. American Water rates up

B R I E F

Turkey dinner cost rises

The American Farm Bureau Federation reported Thursday that a meal with turkey and all the trimmings will cost about 13 percent more this holiday. It estimates the average cost to make a meal for 10 people is $49.20, $5.73 more than last year. It’s a result of soaring costs for commodities that are raising prices for food makers, grocers and consumers. The costs for nearly everything from cranberries to pumpkin pie are up. But the biggest price hike is for the main course: a 16-pound turkey costs 4 percent more this year at $21.57.

Starting today, the price Pennsylvania American Water Co. customers will pay for water pouring from their faucets, hoses and shower heads will go up. The state Public Utility Commission on Thursday approved a lower rate increase than requested by the company, but it will still mean an increase. The 5-0 vote approved a settlement that will see rates increase 6.3 percent. For a typical customer using 4,150 gallons per month, the cost will increase by $3.07 per month, from $48.45 to $51.52. Under the company’s original request, those customers would have seen monthly rates increase $6.42, or 13.25 percent, to $54.87. Commercial rates will rise a much

Maternity leave stagnates

A Census Bureau analysis released Thursday shows that the share of women given time off for pregnancy, birth and child care has leveled off, with about half of working first-time mothers passing up paychecks to care for their newborns. About 66 percent of women with a bachelor’s degree or higher were able to use paid leave during 2006-2008, compared to 18 percent of women who had less than a high school. That’s the widest gap over the past 50 years.

Jobless aid claims fell last week

ments totaling about $533 million since the company’s last rate increase in 2009 were cited as the primary reason for the latest rate increase request. The settlement grants an increase of approximately $36 million in annual revenue. The increase was opposed by more than a dozen residents who attended the local hearing, and by state Rep. Phyllis Mundy, who sent a letter urging the PUC to “only approve what is absolutely necessary.” “We believe this is a fair and equitable settlement that balances our customers’ interests with the company’s need to recover costs associated with our millions of dollars in capital investments,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Kathy L. Pape in a release.

steeper 17.3 percent, to .8978 cents per 100 gallons for the first 16,000 gallons and .6883 for every100 gallons over that. The old rates were .7656 cents and .5869 cents respectively. Susan Turcmanovich, a spokeswoman for the utility company, said it has 140,000 customers in Lackawanna and Luzerne counties. The company told the state during a series of hearings held across the state – including one in Wilkes-Barre in late July – that it needed the additional $70 million the requested hike would generate to help maintain and upgrade its aging infrastructure that includes a 9,200-mile network of water lines and several treatment plants. Many, the company said, are in need of expensive maintenance, repair or replacement. System improve-

WASHINGTON — The outlook for American jobs and trade looked a little brighter Thursday, despite growing uncertainty overseas. The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits last week fell to a seasonally adjusted 390,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. That’s the fewest since April. The U.S. trade deficit narrowed to $43.1 billion in September, its lowest point of the year, the Commerce Department said. Foreign sales of American-made autos, airplanes and heavy machinery pushed exports to an all-time high. The data suggest layoffs are easing and the economy grew slightly better over the summer than the government had estimated a month ago. The reports “are modestly strong relative to expectations — encouraging confidence that the economy is gaining a bit of momentum,” said Pierre Ellis, an analyst at Decision Economics. Weekly applications for unemployment benefits have declined in three of the past four weeks. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, fell to 400,000, also the lowest point since April. The downward trend in applications suggests businesses are laying off fewer workers. Still, applications need to consistently drop below 375,000 to signal sustained job gains. They haven’t been at that level since February. In September, exports increased 1.4 percent to a record $180.4 billion, reflecting a big increase in shipments of U.S. made autos and auto parts, the Commerce Department said. Imports were up a smaller 0.4 percent to $223.5 billion. Oil imports slowed after huge gains earlier in the year. The deficit has narrowed for the last three months. The number of people receiving unemployment aid under regular state programs dropped 92,000 to 3.62 million in the week that ended Oct. 29. That doesn’t include more than 3 million who are receiving extended benefits under an emergency program paid for by the federal government.

Deficit shrinks in October

Helped by an accounting shift, the federal budget deficit for October, the first month of the 2012 budget year, was down more than $40 billion from October 2010, to $98.5 billion, the Treasury Department said Thursday. Roughly $31 billion in benefit payments for October went out in late September because Oct. 1 fell on a Saturday. For all of the 2012 budget year, the Congressional Budget Office predicts the deficit will be $973 billion. AP FILE PHOTO

Russia OK’d to join WTO

Vehicles at a Honda factory are parked on a bridge partially under water last month in Ayutthaya province, Thailand. The factory that makes nearly 5 percent of Honda vehicles worldwide is still under 5 feet of water.

Russia cleared a major hurdle toward opening up its huge oil-driven economy Thursday, with negotiators agreeing to final terms that would allow it to join the World Trade Organization after an 18-year effort. The deal is expected to quickly inject 4 billion euros a year into the ailing European economy by boosting European Union exports. The EU buys 52 percent of Russia’s exports, including the fossil fuels that power the continent. And the thirdbiggest customer for EU exports is Russia, after the U.S. and China.

The understandably frazzled Maehara acknowledged that the prospects for the plant’s recovery are anyone’s guess until floodwaters that have killed more than 500 people in Thailand since July, and caused billions of dollars in damage to industry, subside. “The whole area is now like a lake,” he said this week in a telephone interview. Among Japan’s automakers, Honda Motor Co. has been the worst hit by the

Thai flooding — a disaster that arrived just as automakers were recovering from the production slide caused by the March 11 tsunami in northeastern Japan that wiped out parts suppliers. Others such as Toyota Motor Corp. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. have also suffered. The disaster is another reminder of how vulnerable car makers and other manufacturers are to supply disruptions since their global operations rely on a myriad of sophisticated parts. Toyota, Japan’s biggest automaker, said Thursday it will resume production

at its Thai plant Nov. 21, indicating that Toyota may be able to bounce back from the flooding far more easily than it had from the March earthquake and tsunami. Toyota’s production in Thailand was stopped Oct. 10. Toyota’s North American production, which had been cut since Oct. 29, is expected to be back to mostly normal by next week. Honda has not released lost production numbers, but its Japanese plants are now working at about 50 percent capacity, and its North American plants are at 50 percent to 75 percent of full capacity. Ford Motor Co. stopped production at plants in Thailand and South Africa, but work is to resume at a joint Mazda-Ford plant in Thailand on Nov. 14. 10-YR T-NOTE 2.06%

TODAY

NATIONAL FORECAST: Heavy rain should affect parts of northern New England today; otherwise, look for windy and colder weather throughout the Northeast. Much of the central United States will enjoy abundant sunshine and seasonable conditions. Meanwhile, rain looks to overspread western parts of California, while rain and mountain snow showers affect the Pacific Northwest.

Stepping outside this morning leaves one with no doubt that we are headed into the winter season. With a gusty wind and limited sunshine today, the radar will show a spattering of sprinkles and snow flurries. For the high school playoff games tonight, skies will partially clear with diminishing winds and 38 degrees. As the wind backs south of west on Saturday, sunny skies will prevail and remain clear into Saturday night across all of Pennsylvania. Sunday will feature only limited sunshine, but the day will remain dry. Above average temperatures most of next week will favor more rain. - Tom Clark
