Haley Yale wrestles with a spaghetti strand at the Avery Family Fundraiser. The family’s home was severely damaged during Hurricane Irene in August.

Serving up support By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – Having worked side by side with Mike Avery as a volunteer firefighter, Harveys Lake Chief David Davis knows him pretty well. Davis and other firefighters Sunday afternoon helped out at a spaghetti dinner to benefit Avery, his wife, Brandi, and their two children, whose house sustained heavy damage during Hurricane Irene on Aug. 28. From hearing Davis talk, if the benefit was for someone else, Avery and his family probably would have come to the Kunkle

Community Hall for some pasta, salad and desserts. “Mike’s the type of guy that won’t ask for help, but he’ll give it,” said Davis. The day the hurricane hit, Avery was out with the fire department making sure roadways were cleared of fallen trees and debris. He got a call from his wife that a tree crashed into their house and others fell and blocked access to it. Avery and other fireSee BENEFIT, Page 10A

STATE COLLEGE. — For Penn State University, there was the past week — a week of unimaginable turmoil and sorrow, anger and disbelief and shame. And then there is tomorrow. As Penn State leaves a harrowing week behind and takes tentative steps toward a new normal, students and alumni alike wonder what exactly that means. What comes next for a proud institution brought low by allegations that powerful men knew they had a predator in their midst and failed to take action? What should members of its community do now? “Our best,” said Julie Weiss, 19, a sophomore from Wayne, N.J., pausing outside her dorm to consider the question. Last week, the worst in its

Governor: McQueary didn’t meet ‘a moral obligation’ The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — The Penn State football coach who told a grand jury that he saw another coach molest a child failed to meet “a moral obligation” to intervene, Pennsylvania’s governor said Sunday, adding that he expects more victims to come forward. The coach who testified, Mike McQueary, had said he saw retired Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy

in a shower at a campus football facility almost a decade ago. Sandusky is accused of assaulting Corbett eight boys over 15 years and has maintained his innocence. The university has put McQueary on leave from his job. See COACH, Page 10A

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS WEEK

>> DINO DOUBLE FEATURE: If you’re a fan of giant lizards running around and eating Hollywood actor types (and who isn’t?) then the AMC Network has a double feature you can really sink your fossilized teeth into. Get yourself some T-Rex car-eating action in “Jurassic Park” at 9 p.m. on Tuesday. Follow that up at 11 p.m. with 2001’s “Jurassic Park III,” which has a bigger and badder dinosaur called a Spinosaurus. If you sit though both flicks, you will be what scientists call a Couchpotatoasaurus. >> A MAN OF THE WORLD: If, as they say, it really is a

small world after all, then Thomas Friedman is the man you’d want to tell you all about it. He’s a three, count ‘em, THREEtime Pulitzer-Prize winning author and the foreign affairs columnist for the New York Times. How’s that for a resume? He’ll be speaking at the F.M. Kirby this Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Wilkes University Sidhu School Of Business and Leadership Outstanding Leaders Forum.

>> IT’S A RECORD!: Are you 11-feet

tall? Or have a 5-foot head? Can you eat a Volkswagen? Or tap dance in snowshoes for seven days straight? If you can do any of these things, then you are known in the scientific community as “weird.” In the Guinness World Records community, however, you’d be considered “talented.” And this Thursday would be your lucky day, because it’s Guinness World Record Day. So celebrate your monumental accomplishments or freakishly disproportioned physical features. You’ve earned it.

natural gas is emerging: Exports. The Department of Energy has received five applications from companies that want to create terminals to ship liquefied natural gas (LNG) overseas. One application has been approved. The natural gas industry, which is eager to sell more fuel, says overseas markets could generate bilSee EXPORTS, Page 10A

>> THERE WILL BE ACTING: If you think the name Volturi is the title of a Dean Martin song from the 1960s, then you should probably just skip ahead to the next item. Yes, folks, it’s “Twilight” time again, and heavenly shades of money will be falling at the box office this weekend. As any 14-year-old girl can tell you, the last installment of the vampire love story “Breaking Dawn -- Part 1” opens this Friday. You better get your tickets early, because millions of fans will be turning out to follow the continuing adventures of Edward, Bella, Jacob and “Scats, the Wonder Badger.” (Maybe) >> WELCOME TO THE MOHEGAN: Fans of 1980s hair bands, rejoice! Have we got a show for you. Guns N’ Roses, one of the stalwarts of the genre, will be bringing its hard rockin’, lighter-waving act to the Mohegan Sun Arena next Sunday. But wait, there’s more. Act now, and the promoters will throw in Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach at no extra charge. Showtime is 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $52.50. Which, continuing the 1980s theme, is eerily close to the title of the 1986 Van Halen album, “5150.”

Rock event to help fund health clinic

Volunteers In Medicine provides medical and dental services to area residents. By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

WILKES-BARRE -- Volunteers In Medicine, a medical and dental clinic that has provided free health care services to 9,000 area residents since its opening, is seeking donations to continue services through a fundraiser called Rock for Free Health Care. For a $15 donation, attendees can enjoy an evening of entertainment, refreshments and socializing from 6 to 11 p.m. on Thursday in the Oyster Restaurant and Bar in the Best Western Genetti Hotel & Convention Center in Wilkes-Barre. Kelly Ranieli, executive director with the clinic, said the event will feature a wine education class, a silent auction and area doctors and dentists serving as celebrity bartenders. Music will be provided by Soul and food is being donated by Gus Genetti. Volunteers In Medicine has strived to meet the health care needs of the working but underinsured for 3 1/2 years.

Due to the termination of the state subsidized insurance program, adultBasic, and the downturn in the economy that has caused many small businesses to reduce health insurance benefits, the need for free health care has increased, Ranieli said. “We currently have about 5,500 registered patients,” she said. Ranieli said many patients earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but cannot afford medical insurance. “We help the people that fall through the cracks, such as a single mother working two jobs,” she said. Thanks to medical volunteers, Volunteers In Medicine created a “medical home,” she said. “We have family medical care but also a physical therapist, psychologist, a podiatrist, three gynecologists, an optometrist, two dietitians, and (as of Jan. 1), a dental clinic,” she said. A similar event held last year raised about $15,000, Ranieli said, which was used to cover direct patient care services and operational costs. If interested in volunteering or making a donation, call 9702864.

SHICKSHINNY --It’s no secret that the life of a farmer is becoming increasingly difficult. Ronald Taylor, of Shickshinny, has been one all his life and couldn’t agree more that the job is tough, which is why he decided to try his luck and submit his story to the Marlboro Dream Big Sweepstakes for a shot to win a grand prize of $100,000. Taylor’s wish is simple: He would love to make a full-time living of being a farmer. Any amount of prize money, even the minimum $10,000, would put him on his way to that. “One of the biggest things is that I just don’t have enough cat-

farm. A little over 20 years ago he switched to raising all-natural beef cattle. He currently has 17 cattle, and the beef from his herd is always in high demand, which can sometimes be hard to meet. “I have a waiting list of people that are looking for all-natural beef,” Taylor said. “People like the fact that they know what they’re getting, what the animal is fed and where it’s coming from.” If he wins the prize money he would not only expand his herd, but also make adjustments to the farm itself to make the operation easier to run. “I’d like to fix up the barn and put up more permanent fencing so I can graze the cattle a bit more.” Another problem is the fluctu-

can ever remember it being,” he said. Taylor is also short on time. His primary job is running an excavating company, which leaves him little time to concentrate on the farm. He and his daughter are the only ones that tend to the cattle. But, even if Taylor won prize money, this would remain the same. “I just want to make it easier so that I can do it myself,” he said. “It’s not really about getting extra help, it’s about being able to do it full-time, and comfortably.” Voting begins Nov. 21 and runs through the first week of December.

PHILADELPHIA — Authorities in Philadelphia said Sunday two men were injured, one critically, in a shooting and stabbing on a subway platform in the center of the city. Police said the gunfire erupted just before 1 a.m. at the Broad Street Line platform. A 19-year-old man was shot

twice in the back and stabbed in the neck. He was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. An 18-year-old man was shot in the foot. Police said he tried to walk away but collapsed nearby. Investigators said they do not know the motive for the attack. No suspects were immediately arrested.

‘Immortals’ reigns with $32M opening By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

LOS ANGELES — The gods of ancient Greece have extended their rule to the weekend box office with a No. 1 debut for the action tale “Immortals.” The story of Greek hero Theseus took in $32 million domestically, while Adam Sandler’s comedy “Jack and Jill” opened at No. 2 with $26 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The new movies bumped the animated hit “Puss in Boots” to the No. 3 spot after two weekends at the top. “Puss in Boots” earned $25.5 million, raising its domestic total to $108.8 million. Director Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar,” a film biography star-

ring Leonardo DiCaprio as longtime FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover, played in narrower release and opened at No. 5 with $11.5 million. Released by Relativity Media, “Immortals” stars Henry Cavill and Freida Pinto in a tale of human heroes battling an evil king (Mickey Rourke) who aims to bring down the Olympian gods. With males making up 60 percent of its audience, “Immortals” has a chance to corner much of the action market through Thanksgiving weekend and beyond, a period likely to be dominated by family movies such as “Happy Feet 2,” “The Muppets,” “Hugo” and “Arthur Christmas.” “The Twilight Saga: Breaking

Dawn — Part 1” does open Friday, but that blockbuster action fantasy franchise mainly draws female crowds, typically a smaller segment of the action audience. “There’s really not another action movie until you approach the Christmas holidays,” said Kyle Davies, head of distribution for Relativity. “Over the next few weeks, there’s no real competition for us.” “Immortals” added $36 million in 35 overseas markets, bringing its worldwide total to $68 million. Sandler plays dual roles in “Jack and Jill,” portraying a sturdy family man and his needy sister, who comes to visit for Thanksgiving.

Topping off a victory Scholarship is pizza-eating prize By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

WEST PITTSTON -- The napkins were many and the stomachs were heavy, but halfway through Sunday’s second annual Pizza Bowl at the Moose Lodge in West Pittston, contestants from Wyoming Area and Pittston Area were still cheery, singing along to “That’s Amore” and bopping their heads. Five minutes later, though, the mood changed drastically as each guy, who spent the previous 20 minutes stuffing as much pizza as he could into his mouth, hit a wall. “I just don’t want to move anymore,” said Ahmad Bouie, of the Wyoming Area team. His teammate Corey Popovich silently agreed as he put down the piece of pizza he was working on. Though David Dragon, on the Pittston

Area side, was also slowing down, he didn’t lose his spirit, ribbing Bouie about the amount of pizza he had yet to eat to beat his team. “Don’t throw up,” he joked. These and the other student-athletes -E.J. Driving Hawk from Wyoming Area and Tyler Roman and Mike Stankoski from Pittston Area -- were competing to win a $500 scholarship for a qualified scholastic athlete of the winning school. The team that won the Pizza Bowl submits the names of students eligible for the scholarship come graduation time, when all names go into a raffle and a scholarship winner is randomly picked.

The Moose has provided scholarships to the two schools for years, but decided last year to make it more interesting. “We never knew what school it should go to, so we decided to turn it into a friendly competition,” Bernie Cassetori, administrator of Pittston Lodge 1207, said. The strategy for the guys was simple going in. “Just go at it, don’t stop,” Bouie said of the pizza, donated by Mariano’s. “Get through that first 15 minutes,” Dragon said. “Your brain doesn’t know you’re full until 15 minutes later.” Other strategies included making a sandwich out of two slices and dipping the crust in water to make it go down smoother. Pittston Area pulled out the win against Wyoming Area by a slice. Each team polished off three trays of pizza, with Wyoming Area eating one extra slice and Pittston Area putting down two.

Gary DeCarlo, who sang the lead vocal on “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye,” a No. 1 hit for the band “Steam” in 1969, will travel to Wilkes-Barre to close the show, Raineri said. “He will perform the world-famous song as we say goodbye to the 2011flood waters,” Raineri said. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army. Admission is $20 and tickets are available at all Gallery of Sound locations. Raineri said the event is being presented by the Union Township Board of Supervisors, which is reaching out to help its neighbors around the Valley recover from the devastating floods that wiped out many area homes and businesses. “Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner and many who were impacted by the flood have not much to look forward to this season,” Raineri said. This is the first time Nardone and Eddie Day Pashinski, the state representative from the121st Legislative District, have performed on the same stage since the 1980s. “Every penny we raise will go to help the flood victims,” Pashinski said. “… Many people still are not back in their homes and winter is upon us. Any help we can provide is appreciated and needed.” Nardone lived in South WilkesBarre in 1972 when the waters of the Agnes flood were over the roof of his home. “I can appreciate all the pain and agony the victims have been going through,” he said. Nardone said everyone involved is donating their time, equipment and labor. “It’s our pleasure to do this to raise money with no expenses being deducted at all – not one penny,” he said. Raineri said Rock Street Music in Pittston has donated the sound system, Gus Genetti has donated the ballroom, Corcoran Printing in Wilkes-Barre has donated several hundred color posters and Bob’s Auto Center in Nanticoke has paid for printing of the tickets.

Bishops set for liberty fight

Group formed to deal with an America seen as increasingly intolerant of Christianity. By RACHEL ZOLL AP Religion Writer

The mood among many U.S. Roman Catholic bishops was captured in a recent speech by Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia. His talk, called “Catholics in the Next America,” painted a bleak picture of a nation increasingly intolerant of Christianity. “The America emerging in the next several decades is likely to be much less friendly to Christian faith than anything in our country’s past,” Chaput told students last week at Assumption College, an Augustinian school in Worcester, Mass. “It’s not a question of when or if it might happen. It’s happening today.” The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops meets today in Baltimore for its national meeting feeling under siege: from a broader culture moving toward accepting gay marriage; a White House they often condemn as hostile to Catholic teaching; and state legislatures that church leaders say are chipping away at religious liberty. Many Catholic academics, ac-

tivists and parishioners say the bishops are overreacting. John Gehring of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy network for more liberal religious voters, has argued that in a pluralistic society, government officials can choose policies that differ from church teaching without prejudice being a factor. “Some perspective is needed here,” Gehring, a Catholic, wrote on his organization’s blog. Still, the bishops see themselves as more and more on the losing side of these disagreements, and they are taking steps they hope will protect the church. In September, the conference formed a new committee on religious liberty that will meet for the first time this week in Baltimore. Anthony Picarello, general counsel for the conference, will oversee that work, which will include hiring a lobbyist. Picarello had worked for seven years at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a public-interest law firm based in Washington, and also served on an advisory committee for President Barack Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Among the bishops’ top concerns are religious exemptions in states that legalize same-sex marriage. In Illinois, government officials stopped working with Ca-

tholic Charities on adoptions and foster-care placements after 40 years because the agency refused to recognize a new civil union law. Illinois bishops are suing the state. In New York, the bishops, along with Orthodox Jewish leaders and others, have complained that the religious exception in this year’s law allowing gay marriage is too weak to be effective. On health care, the bishops have been pressing the Health and Human Services Department during its public comment period for a broader religious exception to the provision in Obama’s health care overhaul that mandates private insurers pay for contraception. Sister Carol Keehan, president of the Catholic Health Association, which broke with the bishops to support the administration’s health care plan, said a proposed exemption is so narrowly written it would only apply to “the parish housekeeper.” The conference is also battling the agency on another front: The Health and Human Services Department recently decided not to renew a contract held since 2006 by the bishops’ refugee services office to help victims of human trafficking. The women are often raped and forced into prostitution by their captors.

Deficit-reduction panel needs more time By LISA MASCARO Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — With 10 days remaining for the congressional deficit-reduction committee to strike a deal, a top Democrat said his party hasn’t agreed with Republicans on any specifics. Rep. James Clyburn, (D-SC), one of the12 members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, said he is “not as certain” the committee could find consensus between Democrats and Republicans as he was just days ago. “The fact of the matter is Demo-

crats have not coalesced around a plan,” Clyburn, the No.3 Democrat in the House, said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s at a difficult point,” Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, said on the show. “We’ve got a ways to go.” The committee is deadlocked as it struggles to overcome deep partisan divisions on tax and spending proposals to reduce federal deficits. The committee faces a Nov. 23 deadline to reduce deficits by $1.5 trillion over the next decade, and most members remained in Wash-

ington this weekend as the secretive panel continued negotiations. Failure could trigger forced cuts that neither side wants. The Republican co-chairman of the committee, , Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas, said he remained optimistic despite what has been “a roller-coaster ride.” “We haven’t given up hope,” Hensarling said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” But Hensarling acknowledged that the committee may be forced to delay its most difficult decisions on tax and entitlement reform until next year.

Arab vote ups pressure on Syria

BEIRUT — Syria’s embattled regime called for an urgent Arab summit as it faced growing isolation Sunday, not only by the West but by its neighbors, over its bloody crackdown against an eight-month uprising. Turkey senta plane to evacuate nonessential personnel after a night of attacks on several embassies by Syrian government supporters angry over the Arab League decision Saturday to suspend their country’s membership. The 22-member bloc’s rare, near-unanimous vote — only

Lebanon, Yemen and Syria were opposed — put Damascus in direct confrontation with other Arab powers, including Qatar and Saudi Arabia, who were pushing for the suspension. The vote constituted a major boost for the Syrian opposition. Tens of thousands of government supporters poured into the streets of Damascus and other cities. Violence continued elsewhere, with activists reporting at least 14 people killed in shootings by security forces in several parts of the country. Syria’s call for an Arab summit to discuss the country’s spiraling political unrest was seen as another possible bid by President Bashar Assad to buy time. In a thinly veiled warning, the government said it was calling for the meeting “because

Obama: Asia-Pacific critical

resident Barack Obama said Sunday the U.S. will not be able to put P people back to work and expand opportunity unless the Asia-Pacific region also is successful. The president called the region “absolutely critical” to America’s growth, and a top priority for his administration, as he welcomed leaders of the 21-economy Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum to a summit in his home state of Hawaii. And Obama said he hoped for progress Sunday toward the goal of a seamless regional economy.

Acts in Jewish area decried

About 100 people are marching through Brooklyn to protest against vandals who torched three cars and scrawled Nazi swastikas in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood. Protesters say they are taking a stand against the unknown vandals who set the cars ablaze Friday night and early Saturday. The vandals spray-painted the letters “KKK” on a van, put swastikas on benches and left other antiSemitic messages on a sidewalk in the Midwood neighborhood. FAIRBORN, OHIO

Man killed in house blast

The body of a 75-year-old man was found Sunday after he was killed in a house explosion in western Ohio that injured six others, including four children, and damaged neighbors’ homes, authorities said. The explosion sent debris and the victims into the yard, and a neighbor reported seeing a baby burned, bloodied and covered in glass. Work was being done on the duplex’s water line when the gas line was struck, causing the explosion Saturday, Fairborn Fire Marshal Carl Day said. A 13-year-old was transferred in critical condition to Shriner’s Hospital for Children, one of about four hospitals in the country specializing in pediatric burns, said spokeswoman Louise Holker. Two men also were injured. Their conditions were not given. The 1-year-old baby was in fair condition and a 5-year-old was in good condition Sunday morning, a spokesman for Dayton Children’s Medical Center said. A third child, whose age wasn’t available, was treated and released Saturday.

TEHRAN, IRAN

A Revolutionary Guard commander killed in an explosion at an ammunition depot west of Tehran was a key figure in Iran’s missile program, the elite military force said in a statement Sunday. Gen. Hasan Moghaddam was killed together with 16 other Guard members Saturday at a military site outside Bidganeh village, 25 miles southwest of Tehran. The Guard said the accidental explosion occurred while military personnel were transporting munitions. The Revolutionary Guard is a key Iranian military force closely tied to the country’s powerful clerics. Moghaddam headed a “self-sufficiency” unit of the Guard’s armaments section. Iranian officials did not explain why Moghaddam was at the site at the time of the explosion.

The Syrian government is usually loath to accept anything resembling foreign intervention, and the invitation signaled the government’s alarm over the Arab action. Arab League officials did not immediately respond to the request for an emergency summit. Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby demanded immediate implementation of the peace plan. In voting for the suspension, the Arab League said it would meet again Wednesday in the Moroccan capital of Rabat to reconsider the decision, giving Assad some time to take action.

More residents ordered to flee The Associated Press

BANGKOK — Bangkok authorities are telling more residents to leave as floodwaters threaten southwestern neighborhoods in the Thai capital. Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said people should evacuate three neighborhoods due to surging water levels. He said Sunday pumps were operating around the clock and more pumps were being added to help drain the water. Still, floodwaters are receding elsewhere. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said previously the city center would have light flooding if the water penetrated that far but western areas of Bangkok were threatened with inundation. The national death toll from floods since late July has reached 536. More than 13.1 million people — one in five

Thais — are affected. Water fowl, monitor lizards and stray dogs have replaced the throngs of tourists at one of Thailand’s greatest historical sites. Record flooding has turned Ayutthaya’s ancient temples into islands, and a giant statue of the reclining Buddha appears to float miraculously on the lapping water. Experts fear that at least half of the more than 200 waterlogged monasteries, fortresses and other monuments in the one-time royal capital have been damaged. “Imagine a thousand tons of brick and stone resting on soft foundations, with no modern-style pilings. We are very worried,” said Chaiyanand Busayarat, director of the Ayutthaya Historic Park. And as flood waters recede, some experts are proposing a radical change to

prevent similar disasters in the future: Turn back the clock about four centuries to emulate the city’s urban planners and engineers of that time. “We can’t prevent flooding so we have to learn to live with water again, like those who created Ayutthaya. Let’s take out the old city maps,” said Anek Sihamat, deputy director-general of the Thai government’s Fine Arts Department. He recommended digging up old canals that have been paved over for roads and curbing the urban sprawl and industrial parks that block the natural runoff of water. The surge of water from the northern highlands, which began in late July and has killed more than 520 people, is the worst since the 1940s, although Ayutthaya experiences flooding almost every monsoon season.

Economist forms new government for Italy Leader Mario Monti must see if he has enough support in Parliament. By FRANCES D’EMILIO Associated Press

ROME — Economist Mario Monti accepted the monumental task Sunday of trying to form a new government that can rescue Italy from financial ruin, expressing confidence that the nation can beat the crisis if its people pull together. His selection came a day after Silvio Berlusconi reluctantly resigned as premier, bowing out after world markets pummeled Italy’s borrowing ability, reflecting a loss of faith in the 75-year-old media mogul’s leadership. Berlusconi quit after the Italian parliament approved new reform measures demanded by the European Union and central bank officials — but even those are not considered enough to right Italy’s ailing economy. “There is an emergency, but we can overcome it with a common effort,” Mon-

ti told the nation, shortly after Italy’s president formally asked him to see if he can muster enough political support to lead the country out of one of its most trying hours since World War II. “In a moment of particular difficulty, Italy must win the challenge to bounce back, we must be an element of strength and not weakness in the European Union, of which we are founders,” he added. Monti must now draw up a Cabinet, lay out his priorities, and see if he has enough support in Parliament to govern. Rival political parties offered various degrees of support, including one demand from Berlusconi’s party — the largest in Parliament — that his government last only as long enough as it takes to heal Italy’s finances and revive the economy. The 68-year-old economics professor is no pushover, earning a reputation for staring down challenges as a tough EU AP PHOTO competition commissioner. But he’ll Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi greets have to win a confidence vote in Parlia- supporters Sunday as he leaves his residence, Palazzo Grazioli, in Rome. ment before he can lead the nation.

WASHINGTON — After years of Republicans dominating the politics of national security, this year’s GOP presidential candidates are struggling to find a coherent national security argument against President Barack Obama. In the first debate dedicated to security and foreign policy, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney took issue with Obama’s plan for drawing down troops in Afghanistan but the dispute amounted to whether some forces should stay an extra few months. Texas Gov. Rick Perry called for sanctions against the Iranian central bank. Romney and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman debated whether the World Trade Organization should investigate Chinese currency practices. All of the candidates offered only incremental criticism of the Democrat who has racked up a string of security successes, a stark contrast to the with-us-oragainst-us politics Republicans have used since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. If the debate made anything clear, it’s that Republicans have lost-their go-to national security talking points, with Osama bin Laden’s body somewhere in the Indian Ocean, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq drawing to a close and Obama expanding the use of unmanned spy planes to hunt terrorists. “I don’t think there’s a very strong narrative,” said Tony Fratto, who served as a White House and Treasury Department spokesman during the Bush administration. “Is it a significant issue for a majority of Republican voters? No. It’s not.” And it’s not hard to understand why. The sluggish economy is at the top of voters’ concerns and, thus, dominating the campaign conversation. National security and foreign policy issues have been all but absent from the Republican primary contest and, given that the 9 percent unemployment rate is showing no sign of significant improvement, it no doubt will shape the general election, as well. Unlike four and eight years ago, a GOP heavily influenced by the tea party this year has found more traction criticizing Obama for spending at home and it turns to that line of attack any chance it gets.

Support for Sunday hunting in Pa. still unclear By CRAIG K. PASKOSKI The (Hanover) Evening Sun

In a couple weeks, some hunters will head to Maryland in search of deer. And many of them will take advantage of the opportunity to hunt on Sunday, something that isn’t allowed in Pennsylvania. It’s a limitation that frustrates sportsmen, business owners and property rights advocates. The issue of Sunday hunting has long been a prickly one with farmers, who are typically the ones opening their land to hunters. The latest proposal to allow hunting on certain Sundays in the state was introduced by House Game and Fisheries Committee chairman Rep. John Evans, R-Erie. The proposal is languishing in the committee. And that’s just fine with farmers and other opponents to Sunday hunting. Dan Wilkinson, head of the Adams County Farm Bureau, said farmers at the bureau’s annual meeting recently voiced overwhelming opposition to the legislation. Wilkinson explained farmers typically just want one day of the week where they don’t have to worry about hunters on their property. But the push to allow Sunday hunting is backed by studies indicating the move would generate significant revenue for businesses and the state. A recent study by the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee said the state could generate up to $804 million in economic activity and create 7,500 jobs by permitting the additional day of hunting. Rep. Dan Moul, R-Conewago Township, Adams County, who serves on the Game and Fisheries Committee in the House, said he understands the concerns of the farmers and wants to find a compromise. If given the opportunity, he said, he plans to offer an amendment to Evans’ bill that would limit Sunday hunting to privately owned land and strengthen the penal-

ties and enforcement of huntertrespassing laws. It would give police the power to enforce those trespassing laws. Moul said his private-land amendment would apply to state game lands, which are privately owned by the state Game Commission. It would still prohibit Sunday hunting on public lands and parks.

Evans’ bill would give the state Game Commission authority to determine precisely which Sundays hunting would be allowed and how it would be implemented. While talk of lifting the ban crops up regularly, Moul said he is not sure it has any more support this time around. “Right now, I think there’s as many people

against Sunday hunting as there is for Sunday hunting,” he said. “I think I’ve heard more from constituents on this issue than any issue since I’ve been in office,” said Sen. Richard Alloway, R-Chambersburg, who chairs the Game and Fisheries Committee in the state Senate. “They are overwhelmingly against it.”

Police move in on Portland park Mayor ups police By TERRENCE PETTY and JONATHAN J. COOPER Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — Police began moving in on a downtown park Sunday, where a few hundred Occupy Portland demonstrators have remained in defiance of an eviction order. Police on loudspeakers warned that anyone who resisted risks arrest and “may also be subject to chemical agents and impact weapons.” Demonstrators chanted “we are a peaceful protest.” Mayor Sam Adams had ordered the camp shut down last night, citing unhealthy conditions and the encampment’s attraction of drug users and thieves. The anti-Wall Street protesters and their supporters had flooded a city park area in Portland early Sunday in defiance of an eviction order while authorities in other cities stepped up pressure against demonstrators, arresting dozens of people. Crowds converged on two adjacent downtown Portland parks where protesters are camped after city officials set a midnight Saturday deadline to disperse. Hours later protesters remained, though the crowd had thinned and obeyed police orders to clear the street and take down two makeshift barricades. At one point overnight, the crowd swelled to thousands. As dawn arrived, riot police had retreated and most of the crowds had gone home, but protesters who have been at the two parks since Oct. 6 were still there. One of the organizers, Jim Oliver, said the night had been a victory for Occupy Portland.

“We stood up to state power,” Oliver told The Associated Press, standing on a corner opposite the camp. Still, the camp is a shadow of what it was before Saturday. A large segment of the campers consisted of homeless people who had been drawn to the free food and shelter offered by Occupy Portland. They are gone, after outreach workers went through the camp to help them find shelter elsewhere. And as the Saturday midnight eviction deadline neared, protesters themselves began dismantling tents. Around 4 a.m., dozens of police formed a line across from demonstrators who had poured into the street. Protesters facing them appeared to be in festive spirits with some banging on drums and plastic pails, another clanging a cowbell while others danced in the streets as a man juggled nearby. Other demonstrators used pallets and old furniture, wood debris and even a bicycle to set up two makeshift barricades on a street that runs through the encampment, apparently in an attempt to block traffic. Protesters ultimately got off the street after the police asked them to and also cleared away the barricades. On Sunday at an impromptu news conference, the mayor defended his order to clear the park, saying it is his job to enforce the law and keep the peace. “This is not a game,” Adams said. He also noted that implementing the eviction order may require more patience. “Giving the order that the parks will be closed to the public is putting my foot down. Enforcing will take time,” he said. Officials said that one officer suffered minor injuries when he was hit by some kind of projectile in the leg. Police had pre-

pared for a possible clash, warning that dozens of anarchists may be planning a confrontation with authorities. Officers seized pieces of cement blocks Friday, saying they were told some demonstrators had plans to use them as weapons against police. They said they believe some demonstrators were building shields and trying to collect gas masks. In the hours leading up to midnight, protesters held general assembly meetings where they talked about what to do when the deadline came. The also repeated the main message of Occupy Wall Street movement of peaceful resistance to income inequality and what they see as

corporate greed. As those speeches were going on, some snacked on coffee and burritos as others sang protest songs. About 60 bicycle riders circled the camp repeatedly to show support. “We are a peaceful resistance,” said rider Chico Tallman, a 63year-old accountant. “But we’re fed up with the direction the country is going. It’s all about profit.” For the second time in as many days, Oakland city officials warned protesters Saturday that they do not have the right to camp in the plaza in front of City Hall and face immediate arrest.

PHILADELPHIA — Mayor Michael Nutter said Sunday “intolerable” conditions at the Occupy Philadelphia camp and a lack of cooperation among protesters has forced him to beef up police presence at the tent city outside City Hall. The mayor said posting more uniformed officers in the Dilworth Plaza area has become necessary because of growing health and safety concerns and a fractured leadership at the camp that has left the city still pressing the protesters to move to make way for a $50 million construction project. “We are reevaluating our entire engagement and relationship with Occupy Philadelphia,” Nutter told reporters at a news conference. The mayor stopped short of saying the protesters, who occupy dozens of tents outside City Hall, would be evicted or forced to relocate. The latest Occupy response to the city was a vote Friday among protesters to remain at the site rather than move to a plaza across the street as the city has asked. “I’m not getting into deadlines,” Nutter said. “When we need to act, we will act.” The mayor reemphasized that by refusing to accept the city’s offer to relocate to a public plaza across the street, the protesters were standing in the way of a long-planned renovation project, expected to provide more than 1,000 jobs. Nutter said “serious health and safety issues” occur almost daily at the encampment, including thefts and assaults — the latest

an alleged sexual assault reported Saturday. Emergency responders made 15 runs last week involving assaults, a tent fire, hypothermia, and other safety concerns involving the camp, Nutter said. The mayor also cited the risk of fire to the camp and the historic City Hall building given the quantity of combustible material on the plaza, along with camping stoves, candles, lanterns, propane tanks, and people smoking. In addition, the mayor said that despite the presence of portable toilets, people continue to defecate and urinate outdoors. “We do not seek confrontation. We prefer cooperation,” he said. “But these issues of public health and safety must be addressed and addressed immediately.” The mayor stressed that two public safety maintenance projects — the removal of tower scaffolding and repairs to windows overlooking the encampment — must proceed. Michael Miller, 35, who said he has been at the Occupy Philadelphia encampment since the start a month ago, said the demonstrators need to cooperate more with the city, including moving to another site to allow the renovation project and other work. “I think the mayor has been lenient with us and nice ... compared to all of the other cities,” he said. “This has been a model city for protesting out of all of them up until this point. Now you’re starting to see negative things come to the surface. That is going to derail this movement and start making us look bad.” Posted inside the tent where he was sitting was an Occupy-produced flyer and photograph warning of an alleged sexual offender who protesters say has been repeatedly escorted from the camp, although is not the person suspected in the Saturday assault.

The Unit 4 reactor building of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station is seen Saturday in Okuma, Japan.

Media gets look at Japan’s nuke plant Journalists got supervised visit to the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant. By JOHN M. GLIONNA Los Angeles Times

TOKYO — The scene is postapocalyptic: a scattering of failed buildings squatting in the sunlit silence, their iron frames bent and twisted, having barely withstood the explosions that rocked the nuclear power plant in the days after the March 11 earthquake. For the first time since the disaster, journalists were allowed this weekend to make a supervised visit to the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant, which suffered meltdowns and blasts after a towering quake-triggered tsunami knocked out its cooling system, and hydrogen built up inside its reactor housing. Reporters, photographers and cameramen dressed in protective gear, respirators and radiation deflectors offered detail of an atomic factory scene that still reeked of destruction eight months after the catastrophe. The Tokyo Electric Power Co., or Tepco, hosted the media entourage in part to demonstrate that progress was being made in stabilizing the facility, where the non-nuclear explosions and leaks

of dangerous radioactivity led to the possibly permanent evacuationof80,000residentsfromnearby communities. Plant general manager Masao Yoshida said the facility had “definitely been stabilized,” the Japan Times reported. He said temperatures at the bottom of pressure vessels in the three worst-hit reactorunitshavebeenkeptbelow100 degrees Celsius, which he said meant that contaminated coolant water is no longer boiling and releasing large amounts of radiation, the newspaper reported. In the past, such statements have been greeted with derision. Tepco and Japanese government officials have faced withering criticism for not releasing timely and accurate information about the spread of radioactive isotopes that have invaded Japan’s water, ground and air. An independent study released this fall, for example, estimated that the amount of radiation spewed into the atmosphere by the Fukushima blasts was more than twice that reported by utility and government officials. Experts greeted Yoshida’s most recent claims with suspicion, saying that ad hoc cooling systems set up to prevent nuclear fission in the reactor cores must continue to work or more catastrophes could follow.

By SCOTT BAUER Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — The effort to recall Wisconsin’s controversial Republican governor is expected to begin Tuesday, although his opponents have yet to come up with a candidate to replace him. The recall effort comes in response to a Wisconsin law passed earlier this year that effectively ended collective bargaining for most public workers. Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal sparked weeks of protests that drew tens of thousands of people to the state Capitol, and two Republican state senators who supported it were ousted in recalls last summer. Seven other lawmakers targeted for their support or opposition of the law survived recall elections. Walker, who was elected last fall, isn’t eligible for recall until he has been in office for one year. Democrats have been working closely with union leaders on the effort, and they plan to kick off their petition drive Tuesday. They must gather more than 540,000 signatures by Jan. 17 to force a recall election. The governor has already started raising money to fight the recall thanks to a donor who filed paperwork on Nov. 4 for a fake recall effort. The maneuver allowed Walker to begin accepting unlimited donations. Nicole Larson, spokeswoman for the state Republican Party, responded to the recall effort by

WORLD OPINION

Cities have the right to contain occupation

T

HE TOLERANCE OF North American cities for the Occupy protests need not be limitless. It doesn’t take a philologist to recognize that “Occupy” suggests civil disobedience. Typically, those engaged in civil disobedience accept their punishment as a means of provoking social change. But cities such as Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto have tolerated the Occupy protests for a variety of reasons, including their novelty, a respect for freedom of speech, a sense that letting off some steam is healthy and a fear that larger protests or violence could erupt if cities try to close down the protests. It is justifiable, fair and constitutionally permissible for cities to say enough is enough, and look for a way to quietly conclude the protests, or move them on to a mutually agreed space.

There is no constitutional right to “occupy.” If there were, ethnic Tamils, aboriginals or anyone who wakes up on the wrong side of the bed one morning could block any road or highway in the country. There are reasons why tents and RVs are not normally allowed in public squares or parks. One excellent reason is that the square or park is lost to its original uses – taken by force, monopolized. That is anti-democratic. The Canadian tradition is to discuss, argue, protest, but not to use force. That is not to say that the protests are not well-motivated, or democratic in spirit. The protesters have had time to make their points. Perhaps some larger point can be made only in the act of occupying. But if that is the case, cities will have to move, sooner or later, to assert the law. The Globe and Mail, Toronto

QUOTE OF THE DAY “If you want America to be a world leader in this century, that leadership is going to have to include the Asia-Pacific.” Ben Rhodes A deputy national security adviser for President Obama emphasized last week why the administration feels it is important for a nine-day diplomatic mission, with summits planned in Hawaii and Indonesia, plus a visit to Australia.

Grappling with growth

S

AKYO KOMATSU, A Japanese writer who recently died, wrote a short story titled “Gogo no burijji (Playing bridge in the afternoon)” about a global food crisis. The story is set in a future world where most species of animals have become extinct as an exploding global population has led to explosive growth in meat consumption. As a result, people around the world have to live mostly on artificial foods. The world’s population recently hit 7 billion. Five decades ago, the number of people living on this planet was slightly more than 3 billion. It more than doubled in just a half cen-

tury. Warnings about a food crisis due to the population explosion have been issued many times. But humankind has so far managed to prevent a global food crisis through species improvement and output expansion. The pace of global population growth is slowing. Still, nearly 80 million are added to the global community every year. This precious planet is crowded. We all have the obligation to make this world a better place to live for new members of the human community who will arrive in the coming years. The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo

Greed blackens capitalism

C

APITALISM AT ITS best involves a hunt for good investments that generate growth and profit. At its worst, it preys on bad investments, with speculators acting like a pack of rabid dogs, harrying their prey to exhaustion and collapse. This is what we are seeing happening in the euro zone, with cynical investors reaping profits by speculating against the euro zone equity and bond markets. Such speculation merely (and probably deliberately) has the effect of boosting the appearance of risk and so driv-

ing up the interest rate that Italy has to pay to borrow more money. As a result of market mayhem, governments are falling, first in Portugal, now in Greece and perhaps, very soon, also in Italy. Will Spain be next, or perhaps France? On this basis, it is not European voters who are deciding who is running their countries for them but super-rich investors. It has become the markets that make and break governments in Europe, not the electors. Arab News Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

T

his is a response to Deb Cantwell’s letter to the editor (Nov. 5) regarding the speed of drivers’ vehicles in front of Holy Redeemer High School in WilkesBarre. I had the unfortunate experience of witnessing a pedestrian get hit on a recent Friday evening on Pennsylvania Avenue. The driver never stopped. This really motivated me to write this and plead for drivers to be more cautious. I drop off my daughter, my only child, for school every morning at Holy Redeemer. Each morning I ask myself, “Why, why can’t they just slow down for one lousy block?” It leaves a pit in my stomach to see drivers who go above the 15 mph speed limit and swerve in and out of traffic. To go where? I am so relieved to see the police there on certain days, and most times they have a motorist pulled over. Unfortunately the police could make a fortune if they would sit there every day, twice a day. I understand it costs money, but I would think if parents are willing to pay $75 for a child to play a sport, they would pay to have a crossing guard at arrival and dismissal times. Remember it is not only a matter of concern for students walking; it is also young inexperienced drivers who are entering and exiting the school property, expecting vehicles to be traveling at the posted speed limit. Speeders: I only hope wherever it is you are going it is worth the life of a child, because if you hit my child, you better have a very good hiding place. Christine Wylam Hanover Township

Employers need help to comply with tax change

T

he Pennsylvania local earned income tax collection system had been called archaic, complex and inefficient – and that was by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. It estimated that at least $100 million in local earned income tax revenues was lost annually to inefficiencies. The answer was Act 32 – an amendment to the Local Tax Enabling Act – which becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2012. The DCED, however, has not finalized the instructions and regulations so employers can comply. CPAs rallied around the concept of a more simplified tax collection system that would ensure that tax revenues reach the municipalities and school districts where they rightfully belong. The new law reduces the number of tax collectors from 560 to 21. Reduction in collectors, however, comes at an administrative cost for businesses. All employers within the commonwealth who employ one or more persons for com-

pensation must register with a local tax collector. Each employer must have each employee complete a certificate of residency form to help identify the political subdivision where the employee lives and works. Companies will need to take into consideration the potentially different tax rates of where the company is located and where the employee lives, and withhold the tax from the employee’s pay at the higher of either the resident rate (where they live) or non-resident rate (where they work). Failure to comply could be costly. Penalties, in cases of willful disregard, can include fines of up to $25,000 and imprisonment for up to two years. CPAs, payroll services, local tax collection committees and tax collectors have done their part to notify employers of these new laws. Employers are gearing up to handle the additional administrative requirements. But the state still has not completed and published the instructions for the forms and the necessary rules and regulations to ensure compliance. CPAs are willing to help in the process, and we have met with DCED to help with the development of these items. We need the support of the DCED to get employers set for this new law. We supported efforts to get legislation passed, now it’s the state’s turn to make sure the new system works by supplying employers with the tools to comply. As money gets tighter for small municipalities and school districts, this effort is critical.

Some barstool thoughts on the inequity of it all

W

hile I was quaffing a few brews in a neighborhood den of iniquity, the barkeep tuned the TV to the six o’clock news. The lead story was about Occupy Wall Street.

Replace state sales tax with personal income tax

Y

mong the scariest things at this time are the Unemployment Compensation offices in Washington and Harrisburg. Try calling. We’ve experienced waits as long as one hour with no answer on their end. We need an investigation by our senators or representatives. The money was paid in to the system, and though I worked for 20-plus years, they say I’ve exhausted the available money. Come on! Let’s look into this.

es, it’s time to abolish the sales tax in Pennsylvania, because it is a regressive tax that unfairly targets the poor and low-income workers and their families. For example, Fred and Freda and Joe and Joan are married couples each with two young children. Fred and Freda’s family income is $50,000 a year, and Joe and Joan’s is $25,000. Both couples are replacing a $500 appliance and the sales tax is $30, but that amount hurts Joe and Joan more because of their lower family income. So what can be done? Replace the sales tax revenue by raising the state’s personal income tax rate. For example, a 6 percent state income tax rate would generate $300 a year in taxes from Fred and Freda and $150 a year from Joe and Joan, which is equitable for both families. Additionally, the state Revenue Department could adjust the income tax rate periodically to prevent budget deficits or surpluses. Sales tax revenue generates less than 27 percent of the state’s revenue, but it is too unreliable for accurate budgeting purposes. Pennsylvania’s individual income tax revenue is 31 percent of the state’s budget, as compared to 40.7 percent in Maryland, 39.8 percent in New Jersey and 54.7 percent in New York. Obviously, these comparative rates are justifications for raising the personal income tax rate and abolishing the sales tax, or at bare minimum cutting it in half. Can you imagine going shopping and not having to pay a sales tax on any of your purchases? What would it do for profits and jobs in retail stores in Pennsylvania? Republicans seem to like cutting their own taxes, but they also prefer taxing the poor and middle class. Would they even consider shifting revenue from sales to personal income? Abolishing the state’s sales tax is only the first step in bringing Pennsylvania out of the 1920s and into the 21st century. Changing the state’s constitution to permit a graduated income tax would be the second.

abuse allegations exploded onto the nation’s front pages, bringing notoriety to a place largely untouched by, and unaccustomed to, scandal. As the school’s trustees pledge to get to the bottom of the saga, many Penn Staters are feeling sadness, anger, a sense of loss. Some can’t sleep. Others walk around with knots in their stomachs or can’t stop thinking about the victims. Wherever two or more people congregate, the subject inevitably comes up. Even Saturday’s pregame tailgate parties were muted with the subject that hung low over everything. “Everyone’s been struggling to reconcile how something so bad could happen in a place that we all think is so good,� said senior Gina Mattei, 21, of Glen Mills, Pa., hours after Penn State played its first game since 1965 without Joe Paterno on the sidelines as head coach. “It’s sad to think that something like that could happen HERE, in a place where everyone is really comfortable and has a lot of community spirit.� Penn State’s former assistant football coach, Jerry Sandusky, was charged Nov. 5 with molesting eight boys over a span of 15 years, and two university officials were charged with failing to notify authorities after being told about a 2002 incident in which Sandusky allegedly molested a boy in the showers of the football building. The scandal quickly metastasized, costing two more key figures their jobs — Paterno, the face of Penn State football since 1966, as well as university president Graham Spanier. It also tarnished the reputation of an institution that preached “success with honor� — that, according to its own credo, was supposed to be better than this. “Everyone kind of feels like this is just the beginning. We still have a (long) way to go for Penn State to redeem itself and get back to the place where we were,� said Mattei, who was selling cupcakes, bagels and Rice Krispie treats on College Avenue on Saturday night to raise money for her honors psychology society. Some students argue that the

McQueary told the grand jury he was distraught by what he witnessed and walked away after both Sandusky and the boy saw him. He said he told his father what happened and then told head coach Joe Paterno, who reported it to his superiors. But those school officials, athletic director Tim Curley and school vice president Gary Schultz, face perjury charges, accused of covering up McQueary’s 2002 report. The charges were filed last weekend and the grand jury’s report made public, and the resulting outrage made it clear that Paterno, who had coached for decades at Penn State, would share the blame. He was fired Wednesday. In his last game, a win over Illinois, he’d become the coach with the most wins in Division I history. As for McQueary, the current attorney general had clearly decided that he was to be treated as a witness in the case, Gov. Tom Corbett said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.� McQueary met “the minimum obligation� of reporting what he saw to his superiors, who are required under Pennsylvania law to

question itself — “How does Penn State regain what it’s lost?� — is flawed. This remains a world-renowned research institution, they point out. It’s still the place where students hold THON, a yearly dance marathon that raises millions of dollars for pediatric cancer research. It’s far more than football and far bigger than Sandusky, Spanier, even Paterno. “I don’t think that our name is tarnished at all,� said Amy Fietlson, 19, a sophomore and aspiring veterinarian from New Jersey. “The integrity of a few individuals who have been involved with this school is definitely tarnished, but for the rest of us that had no way of preventing it or had no involvement in it, we are not tarnished at all. Our integrity remains.� Mattei’s boyfriend, Adam DiAntonio, a 22-year-old senior from Chester Heights, Pa., said that “99.9 percent of the university is still committed to the Penn State that everybody has known.� Determined words. In reality, though, it won’t be easy, even with a commitment from new president Rodney Erickson to restore confidence and “rebuild our community.� Too much damage has been done during a week of growing revelations, mounting anger and shock after nationally televised shock. The U.S. Education Department is investigating whether the university violated federal

law by failing to report the alleged sexual assaults. Some donors are expected to pull back, at least in the short term. One football recruit has already changed his mind about attending Penn State next year. Moody’s Investors Service Inc. warned that it might downgrade Penn State’s bond rating as it gauges the impact of possible lawsuits. Then there’s the risk that new allegations of wrongdoing — more abuse victims coming forward, perhaps, or evidence of a wider cover-up than what’s already been alleged — could jolt the campus again. “I hope and I pray that it doesn’t go any further than what we’ve already seen, which is as tragic as it gets,� said George Werner, 47, a Penn State graduate who was tailgating with friends Saturday in the shadow of Beaver Stadium. Werner, 47, who lives outside Ann Arbor, Mich., said he has struggled with the scandal every day, waking in the middle of the night and unable to go back to sleep. He fears it will be a long, long time before the university gets back to normal. “Maybe not in my lifetime,� he says. His friend and fellow alumnus John Jackson, 49, of Doylestown, Pa., said he doubts Penn State can move on until the depths of the Sandusky case are plumbed. “They need to do a deep dive and investigate everything and everybody. It’s going to be start-

ing from scratch in a lot of ways,� Jackson said. “We know how serious this is. The focus needs to be on the children, the harm that was done.� Still, Jackson said, “there’s way more good than bad and that’s how you move on, as much as people want to lump us in.� The university is so big — it’s basically a small city unto itself — that very little can alter the daily routine. Students still took tests, wrote papers, did research. Penn Staters still showed characteristic pride in their school. Saturday night crowds still packed College Avenue’s bars, pizza parlors, galleries and clothing stores. Yet the Sandusky case reached beyond the confines of the football program into every corner of campus and across the vast alumni network, too. After a week in which the focus was on Paterno and the football program, students and alumni moved at week’s end to put it back where they felt it belonged — on the victims. Thousands massed on the lawn of the Old Main administration building for a candlelight vigil Friday night. Students took part in a “blue-out� Saturday, wearing the color of child abuse prevention. Taking a page from THON, a group of Penn State alumni began raising money for sexual violence prevention — and has already collected more than $300,000. It felt good to do something, people said.

Jim Collins, a representative of the American Public Gas Association, said at a Senate committee hearing last week that allowing natural gas exports would produce “predictable and disastrous� results for household consumers. Collins, a utility official in Hamilton, Ohio, said “U.S. policymakers must carefully consider and prioritize the use of domestic resources according to the national interest over both the short and long terms.� U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman, DN.M., chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, appeared to be sympathetic. “How can we ensure that our export policy is consistent with our continued ability to reap the benefits of our newfound abun-

dance of natural gas?� Bingaman said. Just six years ago, the natural gas industry was scrambling to import LNG to meet America’s increasing demand. But then came shale-gas production. The industry says the country is sitting on a 100-year supply. Pennsylvania’s more than 4,000 Marcellus wells now produce more gas than the state consumes. With production expected to multiply, the industry is contemplating reversing the flow of pipelines that now carry natural gas from the Gulf coast to the Northeast. Some senators expressed no fear that exports would harm the domestic market. “We would perhaps sleep better at night, I’d hope, if we knew that our nation was again an ener-

gy exporter, and with a sufficient supply to comfortably remain an exporter while still doing productive things with plenty of our own supply here at home,� said Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, the committee’s ranking Republican. Alaska is reconsidering plans to construct a pipeline that would carry its Northern Slope natural gas to the lower 48 states and is exploring the idea of exporting the gas instead to Asian markets. But some are worried that a free market would too closely link domestic gas prices to international markets. And others do not share the faith that U.S. shale-gas supplies are so robust. “The history of the fossil-fuels industry is replete with miscalculations regarding supplies,� said Collins.

When the time came for Avery to be on the receiving end of help, Davis said he offered some advice. “ ‘You know what, you need to put your pride aside and accept some help, ’ � Davis recalled telling his assistant chief. Avery, 34, who works construction, appreciated the support. “I know quite a few people,� he said looking about the room where people were seated at tables. Benefit organizer Amy Williams counted 79 individuals had bought tickets for meals to eat in or take out. “It’s only been an hour,� said Williams, who is a neighbor of the Avery family. The dinner cost $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under, except for those under 2, who ate for free. It was scheduled to run 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Williams planned to serve 300 dinners.

report such assaults to authorities. But McQueary “did not in my opinion meet a moral obligation that all of us would have,� said the governor, who as attorney general initiated the investigation that led to the charges. Corbett also said people have to keep in mind “that this is also somebody who is a witness to this crime and is a very important witness.� State lawmakers from both parties have proposed changes to toughen the law that governs the reporting of sex assaults, Corbett added. He said he would not be surprised to see it strengthened this year. “We have to make sure the change in the law is one that is effective,� he said. Corbett said he expects more allegations of abuse to materialize, a common occurrence in abuse cases. “When the word gets out, when people understand that authorities are actually doing something about this, that they may be believed, then more people come forward,� Corbett said. Authorities have asked for victims to contact them. Sandusky encountered all the boys through a charity he founded to help at-risk children, Second Mile, prosecutors have said. Leaders of the organization plan to meet soon to determine its future, Corbett said. Mary Jean Tarantini of Harveys Lake picked up two dinners to take home. Her house lost power when the hurricane hit and the fire department responded. “They came, and God bless them, they tried to help us,� she said. “This is just wonderful,� said Brandi Avery as she took a bottle of water from 3-year-old son, Mikey. She and her son and daughter, Mackenzie, 8, were in the upstairs bedroom when a tree crashed down onto the house. “We went down into the laundry room,� she said because it was the farthest away from the bedroom. She said she called her husband and “he was there within five minutes.� The family is living with her husband’s parents in Noxen and trying to figure out whether they can return home. In addition to having several holes in the roof and mold throughout the house, it shifted off of its foundation and the first and second floors separated. Patty West of Harveys Lake arrived to say hello to her best friend, Brandi, sit down for something to eat and join the other diners who came out for the benefit. “This is what a community should do,� said West. able for everybody,� he said. The church funds the dinner through donations from the congregation, area businesses and members of the community. Congregation member Carlton Ayers said Sam’s Club, Price Chopper, Wal-Mart and Logan’s Roadhouse have been major contributors and several other local businesses have pitched too. Walker said the whole church participates, “from set-up to clean-up to cooking. It’s not just a few, it’s the large body of this church who work to make this happen.�

Philadelphia falls to 3-6 as Cardinals win in fourth quarter By PAUL SOKOLOSKI psokoloski@timesleader.com

PHILADELPHIA – It seemed navigating a path through the cramped visitors locker room at Lincoln Financial Field was tougher for Larry Fitzgerald than finding his way through the Philadelphia Eagles defense. “Gotta find a way,” Fitzgerald said. One way or another, the determined wide receiver arrived at his destination, and did his best to change the course of the Eagles’ season. Fitzgerald caught two touchdown passes Sunday and set up

They were championed as the team to beat in the NFC after an offseason spending spree brought cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and former Arizona star Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Philadelphia, along with defensive linemen Jason Babin and Cullen Jenkins.

But we’ve got nobody to blame except ourselves. “One-and-four at home, I don’t blame them.” Maybe those early departers wanted to save themselves more heartache.

If the healing process for all involved could be likened to a thousand miles of road, Saturday was perhaps an inch in the right direction. It has to start somewhere. For Penn State, things may never get quite back to normal, on the field or off. “I don’t think it ever will,” said quarterback Matt McGloin, speaking from the football standpoint. “This season at least, I don’t think it’ll happen. But you’ve got to deal with it. And I’m anxious to see how we’re going to respond.’ “You want my honest assessment?” senior captain Devon Still said. “Naw. I don’t think that you can get anywhere close to being back to normal. “But what I do think we can do is just face the adversity and overcome it. Just understand that things are not gonna be normal.”

Rashard Mendenhall ran for a pair of touchdowns Sunday, and Pittsburgh intercepted Andy Dalton twice in the fourth quarter, holding on for a 24-17 victory over the upstart Cincinnati Bengals.

Giants’ comeback bid comes up a little short

SAN FRANCISCO — Eli Manning lofted a pass to Mario Manningham as he was running toward the end zone. The wide receiver reached out for the ball just beyond his grasp, and the potential tying touchdown slipped through his fingertips. Just like the rest of the day for the Giants: incomplete. Moments after Manning and Manningham couldn’t connect for the score, Justin Smith batted down a pass near the end zone in the closing seconds to seal New York’s 27-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. “It’s one of those you’re going

They went streaming for the exits with over eight minutes remaining and the game tied 14-14 in the fourth quarter, ditching their usual die-hard loyalty during an Eagles struggle that became too hard for

Saturday Anything ABC beyond that this season cannot be guaranteed. Officials have expressed optimism that the Lions will receive and accept an invitation to a bowl game at year’s end. “There has been no discussion of (declining a bowl bid),” university president Rod Erickson said Saturday. “But from my standpoint, if our student-athletes have earned the right to play in postseason play, they should certainly be allowed to do so.” Gov. Tom Corbett said Sunday, however, that skipping a bowl game is an option that should at least be discussed in light of the sexual abuse scandal centered on

Explanation Key The BCS Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive, USA Today Coaches and Computer polls. Team percentages are derived by dividing a team’s actual voting points by a maximum 2875 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1475 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage. The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin, and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule strength in its formula.

NBA LABOR DISPUTE

Union to meet today to discuss league’s offer By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — Decision day for NBA players may have arrived. The players’ association will meet in New York today, a session that could lead to the end of the lockout or send it into a bigger tailspin. Representatives from all 30 teams are expected, as are other players, to examine and discuss a seven-page summary of the NBA’s latest collective bargaining proposal to the union. The proposal, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated

GOLF

Press, was dated to be delivered to union executive director Billy Hunter on Friday. At least some of the people who will be in the NBPA meeting said Sunday they had not yet seen the offer, creating more than a little confusion over what exactly is on the table. “We haven’t asked for anything more than what we had,” Miami Heat player representative James Jones said Sunday. “We understand the times. We understand the economy. We just want a fair deal where both sides are bearing the weight of the present times and with an eye on the future of

the game of basketball.” Sounds so simple. But it’s not. By Monday, things could finally become clear — because this union meeting may decide if basketball will be played this season. Some project that team payrolls will exceed $100 million in the next five or so years, even to the chagrin of many owners. And on Saturday, Commissioner David Stern said again if the current offer is rejected, a harsher one — where owners would keep about another $120 million of basketball related income, or BRI, each year, along with other so-called

system issues that players didn’t want — will take its place. “We’re not going to cancel the season this week,” Stern said. “We’re just going to present them what we told them we would.” The NBA wants a 72-game season to begin Dec. 15. For that to happen, a handshake deal almost certainly would have to be in place this week. Stern says it will take about 30 days to get the season started once an agreement is reached. There are 17 items in the memo, including how teams paying a luxury tax would not be able to

Bill protects athletes from head injuries

Lorena Ochoa Invitational GUADALAJARA, Mexico — Catriona Matthew won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday for her fourth career LPGA Tour title, closing with a 1-under 71 for a four-stroke victory in the 36-player event. Matthew, the 42-year-old Scot whose last victory came in the 2009 Women’s British Open, had a 12-under 276 total at Guadalajara Country Club and earned $200,000. Anna Nordqvist and 2010 winner I.K. Kim tied for second. They each shot 71. Hall of Famer Juli Inkster had a 72 to tie for fourth with Ai Miyazato (71) and Hee Kyung Seo (69) at 5 under. Michelle Wie, the 2009 winner, tied for ninth at 2 under after a 71. Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 72 to tie for 19th at 3 over. Singapore Open SINGAPORE — Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano won the rain-delayed Singapore Open on Monday, beating Juvic Pagunsan of the Philippines with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff. After tying at 14-under 199 Sunday after the third and final round, Pagunsan and FernandezCastano teed off on the playoff hole before play was suspended for 90 minutes because of rain and the threat of lighting. The storm let up briefly, allowing players to hit one more shot before more rain stopped play for good. Anthony Kim (64) and Louis Oosthuizen (65) tied for third, a stroke back.

Chalmers captures Aussie Open SYDNEY — The loudest cheers were for Tiger Woods. The Australian Open belonged to Greg Chalmers. Chalmers won his national championship for the second time Sunday, closing with a 3-under 69 to hold off a late charge by Woods and a 50-foot birdie putt by John Senden that nearly forced a playoff. Woods had his best chance of winning all year. Two tee shots led to bogeys on the back nine, though he also made birdie on the secondtoughest hole at The Lakes on No. 12, then chipped in from just off the green for eagle on the 14th. Woods missed a 12-foot eagle putt on the 17th for a share of the lead. Behind him, Chalmers made his final birdie with a brilliant tee shot on the par-3 15th hole to tap-in range, then played mistake-free down the stretch and picked up a meaningful par on the par-3 18th with an up-anddown from the bunker. Chalmers last won the Australian Open in 1998 at Royal Adelaide, a week before the Presidents Cup in Melbourne. The matches return to Royal Melbourne next week, and Woods at least showed that he wasn’t a complete waste of a captain’s pick by Fred Couples. Chalmers finished at 13-under 275. Senden shot a 72, and Woods had a 67 to finish third, two strokes behind Chalmers.

One of the key points comes on Page 5, where the NBA says “there will be no limitations on a player’s ability to receive 100% guaranteed salary in all seasons of a contract.” Players have repeatedly said they will reject a deal where contracts are not guaranteed. Among the other points of the current proposal, as outlined in the summary sent to Hunter by NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver: • The union will choose be-

Kahne beats Edwards, Stewart By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

AVONDALE, Ariz. — While Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart have gone round-for-round in their race for the Sprint Cup title, Kasey Kahne has quietly turned his performance up a notch outside of the championship spotlight. Kahne’s performance the last nine weeks has trailed only the two title contenders, and on Sunday, he finally got a win to show for his efforts. Kahne snapped an 81-race winless streak with his victory at Phoenix International Raceway, where Edwards and Stewart finished second and third to keep the title race tight headed into next weekend’s season finale. “If I’m in a racecar, I want to do the best that I can,” Kahne said, crediting crew chief Kenny Francis for giving him strong Toyotas that have allowed him “to perform with and run with Carl and Tony, who have been probably the two best.” They’ve been the only two drivers better than Kahne, and one of them will officially unseat five-time defending NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson next Sunday at Homestead. Edwards will take a threepoint lead over Stewart into the 36th and final race of the season, marking the closest championship battle since the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format made its debut in 2004. The two were nearly giddy discussing the title race as they sat side-by-side in the post-race news conference. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s a dead heat going in there,” said

Stewart. “I want to go to Homestead tomorrow and start. I want tomorrow to be Friday. I’m pumped up, I’m excited about it and ready to go.” So was Edwards. “This is going to be a battle. I truly believe it’s going to be a good race,” Edwards said. “That place is magical for us. I really enjoy going there. I hope it comes down to the fastest guy winning the race.” Stewart, winner of four Chase races this season, dominated Sunday at Phoenix and led 160 of the 312 laps. But he had to pit for gas with 18 laps remaining, and was forced to work his way back to the front. He needed a late pass of Jeff Burton to finish third, right behind Edwards. “I wasn’t going to give him the spot. He earned it and he got it,” Burton said. It was a critical pass, as it picked up another point for Stewart and kept his deficit at three points. “We had an awesome day. We came up two spots shy. I don’t know how you could have asked for a better day,” he said. “We led the most laps, we were on the same pace we were last week, just to have a perfect day. Just fought as hard as we could all day.” Edwards did, too, despite having to chase Stewart most of the race. He’s not faltered once with the two-time champion bearing down on him, and he’ll go to Homestead with his first Cup championship in reach. Edwards is a two-time Homestead winner and drives for Roush Fenway Racing, which has won seven of the last nine races at Homestead. Stewart, trying to become the first own-

er/driver since Alan Kulwicki in 1992 to win the championship, won the first two Cup races at Homestead in 1999 and 2000. “It’s the best points battle I’ve been a part of at this level, so it’s fun for me,” Edwards said. “I still don’t understand why we’re both running so good. It’s pretty neat. Seems like subconsciously we’re both able to dig down and our teams are able to give us what we need and everybody has been performing at a high level. “It’s been neat that this battle has brought out the best in us.” Sunday officially marked the end of Johnson’s reign: He finished 14th and was mathematically eliminated from title contention. “It’s been one hell of a run,” he posted on Twitter shortly after the race. Kahne, meanwhile, won for the first time since Atlanta in 2009, and it comes in his nextto-last race with Red Bull Racing. He’s moving to Hendrick Motorsports next season, and Red Bull is pulling out of NASCAR. His win was only the second for Red Bull, which came into NASCAR in 2007 amid much fanfare but never delivered. Kahne, who won in a brand new car, said it’s a shame Red Bull is leaving. “I wouldn’t say there’s anyone out there that’s building better cars at this time. The Red Bull guys are doing an awesome job and they haven’t given up,” he said. “It’s tough to hear it’s shutting down in eight days. Over the last three months, you have one of the top five cars in NASCAR shutting down and that’s crazy.”

HARRISBURG—Governor Tom Corbett signed the Safety in Youth Sports Act last week, bringing an end to a nearly two year ratification process. The signing comes much to the satisfaction of the man who pushed the bill from day one: state representative Tom Briggs. The Act was designed to increase the protection of young athletes from the dangers of head injuries, most commonly concussions. The bill simply states that any player who demonstrates symptoms of a concussion is to be removed from play and will not be allowed to re-enter play until he or she is cleared by a suitable medical professional. The bill also requires that athletes and a parent/guardian read and sign a concussion awareness sheet and that coaches will have to participate in an annual concussion certification course. The aim of the bill is to raise awareness of and help limit the threats posed by concussions and other head injuries. “The initial idea for the act came up during a conversation I was having with a young mother regarding her children getting active in sports, specifically bringing my attention to concussions and brain injuries,” Briggs said. “I started doing some research and realized how devastating a concussion could be to a youth.” Briggs first introduced the bill in September 2009, but it was quickly delayed with the addition of a large amount of amendments. In September of 2010, he introduced another bill that passed in the House, but was not acted on in the Senate. “When we first introduced the bill, it was a page and a half,” Briggs said. “We did some research and came up with a revised version of the bill. Then as soon as I introduced it, I was contacted by a lot of outside entities, including the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania and the Athletic Trainers Association.” With the help of expert groups such as these, Briggs was able to come up with what he views as one of the most comprehensive bills in the nation, with an emphasis on education and awareness. After Briggs joined forces with Senator Pat Brown of Lehigh County and gave him a copy of the bill to be introduced to the Senate, things really began to take off. Following its passing in

the Senate, the bill came to the House a month ago, where necessary changes were pointed out. From there, it traveled back to the Senate where the Senate accepted the changes. According to Briggs, while the bill deals primarily with all sports and activities at the middle and high school levels, including all interscholastic sports, club sports and cheerleading, there is a provision within the bill that encourages all sports that take place outside of school, such as Little League, to come up with similar policies. “We’re hoping that they really take a look at the law that we passed and come up with their own internal policy regarding head injury education,” Briggs said. Several area high school athletic directors are in complete support of the bill. “Sports have changed dramatically over the past 20 years and injuries like those are probably a little more common than what we saw years ago,” Meyers athletic director Mike Namey said. “The concept of bigger, faster, stronger has preoccupied most teams in the offseason, therefore changing the physicality of the sport.” Namey also said it would be interesting to utilize today’s technology to go back and see how many concussions there actually were in the past. He also mentioned how coaching will play an important part in the bill’s success. “Coaching is not just between the boundaries on your field,” Namey said. “It’s a 12-month program that involves the health, academics and psychology of the athlete. Coaches need to be better prepared for that.” Sandy Mackay, athletic director at Wyoming Valley West High School, agreed with Namey and stated that the bill is a great idea. He also reiterated the importance of properly evaluating students who show symptoms of a concussion. It has been a long road for the Safety in Youth Sports Act and Briggs cannot wait to see his work signed into law, ensuring an increase in protective measures when dealing with young athletes. “They are students primarily and athletes secondarily,” Briggs said. “The most valuable resource in Pennsylvania is the minds of our children and I think this bill will do a good job of protecting them.”

NHL ROUNDUP

Toews, Montador each score twice to lead Blackhawks The Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jonathan Toews and Steve Montador each scored twice to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 6-3 on Sunday night for their third straight victory. Duncan Keith had a goal and assist for Chicago (11-4-3), which handed Edmonton its third consecutive loss. Daniel

Carcillo capped the scoring with an empty-net goal. Ryan Smyth, Jordan Eberle and Shawn Horcoff scored for the Oilers (9-6-2). Montador, a defenseman playing his 10th NHL season, had his first two-goal game. He scored one of his goals playing in a forward spot — and parked in the slot — on a power play. Edmonton’s Nikolai Khabibu-

lin surrendered a season-high five goals on 34 shots and lost his second straight game in regulation after starting the season 7-0-2. Flyers 3, Panthers 2 SUNRISE, Fla. — Danny Briere, Braydon Coburn and Matt Read scored and Ilya Bryzgalov made 31 saves in Philadelphia’s victory over Florida.

Bryzgalov won for the fourth time in five starts. Evgeny Dadonov and Tomas Fleischmann scored for Florida and Jose Theodore stopped 32 shots. The Panthers were held without a point for the first time in seven games. Read scored on a penalty shot to give the Flyers a 3-1 lead. Read was awarded the shot after he was tripped by Jason

Garrison. Read’s shot trickled through Theodore’s pads at 4:14 of the third. Wild 3, Ducks 2 ANAHEIM -- Matt Cullen and Jared Spurgeon scored 3:21 apart in the first period, Kyle Brodziak also found the net and Nicklas Backstrom made 32 saves in Minnesota’s victory over Anaheim.

Gibbs helps No. 10 Pitt survive Rider

Oregon is back in title race

UConn. 77, Holy Cross 37 STORRS, Conn. — Bria Hartley scored 17 points, Tiffany Hayes had 16 and the Huskies cruised in their season opener.

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Ashton Gibbs scored 24 points, including the clinching 3-pointer with a minute remaining, and No. 10 Pittsburgh escaped Rider 86-78 on Sunday night. Nasir Robinson added 22 points and six rebounds for the Panthers (2-0), who trailed by as many as six in the second half but ended the game on a 16-5 run to win their 58th straight nonconference game at the Petersen Events Center. Anthony Myles led the Broncs (0-2) with 20 points but Rider — who dressed nine players and played just seven — ran out of steam in the final 5 minutes. Brandon Penn hit a 3-pointer to give Rider a 73-72 lead, but Dante Taylor kickstarted a late Pitt surge that Gibbs capped with a 3-pointer from the top of the key to put Pitt up 82-76. North Carolina 91, UNC Asheville 75 ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Tyler Zeller scored 27 points to help North Carolina fight off UNC Asheville in the debut of the Bulldogs’ new Kimmel Arena. Less than 48 hours after beating Michigan State on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson in San Diego, the Tar Heels (2-0) shot 59 percent from the field and overcame some early turnover troubles to win a rare in-state, nonconference game in coach Roy Williams’ hometown. Baylor 92, Jackson State 59 WACO, Texas — Freshman Quincy Miller scored 17 points, leading 12th-ranked Baylor in scoring again in a victory over Jackson State. Quincy Acy had 14 points, while Cory Jefferson had 13 points and nine rebounds for the Bears (2-0). Anthony Jones had 11 points. Miller, who made all three of his 3-pointers Sunday, also had 17 points in his college debut Friday night. Miller scored eight points during a 13-3 run against Jackson State that put Baylor up 59-32 early in the second half. Texas A&M 83, Southern 58 COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Junior forward Ray Turner scored 20 points and No. 20 Texas A&M beat Southern in coach Billy Kennedy’s return to the Aggies’ sideline. The 47-year-old Kennedy was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease last month and had taken a leave of absence from the program under doctor’s orders. Associate head coach Glynn Cyprien had led the Aggies in practice and in their season-opening victory over Liberty on Wednesday. Derick Beltran scored 19 points for Southern (1-1). A&M raced to a 46-21 halftime lead against the Jaguars, and the contest never was in doubt in the second half. Turner tied his career for the second straight game and the Aggies (2-0) outrebounded the Jaguars 44-21.

Stanford 76, Gonzaga 61 STANFORD, Calif. — Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 33 points and 18 rebounds in helping the Cardinal extend their home winning streak to 64 games over five seasons.

By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

Oregon charged back into national championship contention, jumping to fourth place in the BCS standings Sunday after its big victory over Stanford. LSU and Oklahoma State, both unbeaten, have the top two spots locked down and are on a path to meet in the BCS title game if they can stay perfect. Alabama is third hoping for a stumble by the top two, Oregon jumped from seventh last week to fourth with its 53-30 victory against Stanford. The losses by Stanford and Boise State allowed Oklahoma to inch into fifth. Boise State’s loss dropped the Broncos to 10th and gives them little hope to reach the BCS again. Undefeated Houston from Conference USA is 11th, solid position to be this year’s BCS buster if it can keep winning. Boise State was upset 36-35 by Mountain West Conference rival TCU. The Broncos missed a 39yard field goal as time expired. One champion from the leagues without automatic BCS bids — such as C-USA and the MWC — can earn an automatic berth by finishing in the top 12 of the final standings. Houston would become the first Conference USA team to play in one of the four marquee bowl games if recordbreaking quarterback Case Keenum and the Cougars can stay unbeaten through the toughest part of their schedule. Houston closes with SMU and a road game against Tulsa. If the Cougars win the CUSA West, the championship game opponent will likely be Southern Miss, 20th in the latest BCS standings. Back at the top of the standings, LSU is No. 1 in both polls (Harris and coaches’) and tied for first with Oklahoma State in the computer ratings the BCS uses to determine which teams play for the national title. Oklahoma State is second in each poll. Alabama is third in all three components. Oregon is fourth in both polls and tied with Oklahoma for fourth in the computer ratings. The Sooners are fifth in the polls. Arkansas is sixth in the standings and still lurking on the fringes of the national title race. The Razorbacks play LSU in the regular-season finale and still have a shot to win the SEC West. Standings, 2B

Pacquiao escapes with a win, but ... Many questions remain after Manny Pacquiao wins a narrow decision. By TIM DAHLBERG AP Boxing Writer

LAS VEGAS — The 28 stitches over his right eye weren’t enough to keep Manny Pacquiao from headlining his own post-fight concert, which went on as usual into the early morning hours on the Las Vegas Strip. They certainly won’t keep him from his next fight, though that’s the only sure thing when it comes to Pacquiao’s immediate future. He escaped with a win Saturday night against Juan Manuel Marquez, but that only tells part of the story. Seemingly invincible over the past three years, he looked anything but in scoring a majority decision over his Mexican nemesis in a win that enraged both Marquez and thousands of his supporters who packed the MGM Grand arena. Somewhere, Floyd Mayweather Jr. had to be watching. Somewhere, Mayweather had to be wondering. If Marquez could more than hold his own against Pacquiao by counter punching him every

minute of the fight, what would stop Mayweather from doing the same? If Marquez did everything against Pacquiao except win, why not finally take dibs on next and finish the job? It’s boxing, of course, so nothing is ever that simple. In almost getting beat, though, Pacquiao may have done more to make a megafight with Mayweather than with any of his big wins in recent years. Pacquiao has trouble with counter punchers, as his fight with Marquez clearly showed. And Mayweather is one of the best — if not the best — counter puncher in the sport.

“The style of Mayweather would get very complicated for Pacquiao,” said Marquez, who has fought both men. The style of Marquez certainly was very complicated for Pacquiao, who needed to win a few late rounds to pull out a decision almost as close as the one he won from Marquez in their fight three years ago. Pacquiao won the fight by sheer aggression, though Marquez seemed to land the harder punches, especially with his right hand. One judge scored the fight even, as did The Associated Press. Two others had Pacquiao winning, 115-113 and 116-112.

When the decision was announced, an infuriated Marquez stormed from the ring in protest, and fans started throwing beer bottles toward the ring. “For me the best judges are the audience and you see how they responded,” Marquez said. “I don’t know what type of performance I need to give. It was a robbery once again.” Marquez may have only himself to blame for that. He came into the ring still fuming over the draw Pacquiao got against him seven years ago and the split decision Pacquiao won in 2008. He had to know most of the rounds were so close they were difficult to score, and that judges more often than not favor the fighter moving forward against the fighter moving backward when all things are equal. Still, after listening to his corner tell him he was winning the fight, he came out slow in the final round. Neither man did much in a round when they might have been expected to let it all loose, but if Marquez would have fought a little harder and won the 12th round on two scorecards he would have gotten a draw. “It could have gone either way,” said Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer. “I thought Manny edged it out in the last two rounds.”

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller (81) is tackled by New England Patriots’ James Ihedigbo (44) and Kyle Arrington (24) during the second quarter of an NFL game Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J. At press time, the game was still in progress.

Brady throws 3 TDs as Pats roll past Jets EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes, including two to Rob Gronkowski, and the New England Patriots took control of the AFC East with a convincing 37-16 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday night. After the Jets got within a score at 23-16 early in the fourth quarter, Brady coolly led the Patriots (6-3) down the field on an 84-yard drive that was capped by an 8-yard touchdown catch by Deion Branch. New England linebacker Rob Ninkovich sealed the victory — which snapped a two-game skid — on the Jets’ next possession with a 12-yard interception return for a touchdown midway through the final quarter. The game was a showdown for the top spot in the division, but it was no contest as the Patriots took over sole possession by snapping the Jets’ threegame winning streak. It was also the first home loss for the Jets (5-4). Saints 26, Falcons 23 ATLANTA — John Kasay kicked a 26-yard field goal in overtime to give the New Orleans Saints a victory over Atlanta after Falcons coach Mike Smith decided to go for it on fourth down deep in his own territory Sunday. The Falcons (5-4) rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, tying it on Matt Bryant’s 27-yard field goal on the final play of regulation. Broncos 17, Chiefs 10 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tim Tebow hit Eric Decker on a 56-yard touchdown pass, one of his two completions in the game, to lift Denver. Denver (4-5) played almost the entire game without leading rushers Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno. McGahee hurt his hamstring and Moreno went down with a knee injury in the first quarter. Bears 37, Lions 13 CHICAGO — Charles Tillman and Major Wright returned interceptions for touchdowns early in the third quarter, and Chicago picked off Matthew Stafford four times. The four interceptions by Stafford matched his season total entering the game and helped knock the Lions (6-3) into a second-place tie with Chicago in the NFC North. He was also involved in a skirmish that led to an ejection of Chicago’s D.J. Moore early in the fourth quarter.

the Ravens lost to Jacksonville. Jaguars 17, Colts 3 INDIANAPOLIS — Blaine Gabbert threw for a touchdown and Maurice Jones-Drew ran for another score to keep Indianapolis winless. Jones-Drew carried 25 times for 114 yards and became the second player in franchise history to top 6,000 yards rushing. It was the first road win of the season for Jacksonville (3-6). Texans 37, Buccaneers 9 TAMPA, Fla. — Matt Schaub threw for two long touchdowns, while Arian Foster, Ben Tate and Derrick Ward each ran for scores to help AFC Southleading Houston. The Texans (7-3) extended their winning streak while playing without star receiver Andre Johnson to four consecutive games and head into their bye week with their best record through 10 games. The Bucs (4-5) have lost three straight and four of five following a 3-1 start. Titans 30, Panthers 3 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Chris Johnson ran for a season-high 130 yards and a touchdown, and Tennessee used a stifling defense to frustrate rookie Cam Newton. The Titans (5-4) sacked Newton five times and took away Carolina’s long passing game. Carolina (2-7) came in ranked fifth in the league on offense and first in plays of 20-plus yards, but the Titans limited Newton to 209 yards passing and held Steve Smith, the NFC’s leading receiver, to 33 yards. Cowboys 44, Bills 7 ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo guided touchdown drives on his first four possessions, throwing for the score on three of them, and Terence Newman returned one of his two interceptions for a touchdown. The Cowboys (5-4) have won consecutive games and could be at the start of a big surge. Their next three foes went into this weekend a combined 6-18.

SIDELINED

Denver lost Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno to injuries in the first quarter and still managed to beat the Chiefs. McGahee hurt his hamstring near the end of the Broncos’ opening drive, and although coach John Fox said he was available in an emergency, their leading rusher never returned. Moreno went down later in the first quarter with a sprained knee. Cincinnati’s A.J. Green, who leads all rookie NFL receivers, jarred his right knee when he landed awkwardly on a 36-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter of the Bengals’ loss to Pittsburgh. Green returned on the next series, but was held out as a precaution after his knee tightened up at halftime.

SPEAKING

“We didn’t do anything right. There isn’t one thing that we can hang our hat on. It was just an overall pathetic effort by us.” — Carolina tight end Greg Olsen after a 30-3 loss to Tennessee.

ahead, 17-14, on Alex Henery’s 36-yard field goal with 5:06 remaining on the clock. That proved way to much time for Fitzgerald, Skelton and the Cardinals to rally. Backed up to his own 15-yard line, Skelton hit Chester Taylor with a shovel pass that went for 17 yards, then found LaRod Stephens-Howling with a 30-yard bomb on fourth-and-two. Moments later, Fitzgerald laid out to catch up to a 37-yard toss at the Eagles 1-yard line, setting up Skelton’s 5-yard scoring strike to Early Doucet out of the backfield for the game-winning touchdown with 1:53 to play. “I went out and was near Larry (Fitzgerald),” Doucet said. “I told myself just to make sure I made the catch and then get in the end zone. I knew the defense would flow with Larry.” For good reason. Fitzgerald knifed into the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown catch that tied the game 7-7 late in the first half, then showed tremendous concentration while snagging two tipped passes on another game-tying touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. The first was a 24-yarder that deflected off safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, but Fitzgerald snared it despite falling away from the play. The second was a 7-yard touchdown pass that was first batted by Eagles cornerback Joselio Hanson before Fitzgerald plucked it from the air in the end zone. It was the 70th touchdown catch of Fitzgerald’s career, moving him past Roy Green for the all-time franchise lead in Cardinals history. “He made some plays,” Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo said of Fitzgerald. “We could have had an interception, we had him double-covered. It ended up in his hands.” Sometimes, you make your own breaks. “As a competitor, you want to make the play that puts you

Manning and the Giants came up short in this attempt at another fourth-quarter comeback. With his team trailing, Manning completed a pair of long fourth-down passes and got the Giants in scoring position with 1:53 remaining. Unlike last week’s rally by New York (6-3) at New England, Smith thwarted the final chance with a leaping right-handed smack of the ball on fourth-and-2 from the 10. “Too little. Too late. Not enough. Whatever you want to describe it as,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “They’re a good team. They’re a solid team. They don’t give you much.” The 49ers (8-1) won without relying on star running back Frank Gore, whose franchise-record streak of five straight games with 100 yards rushing ended with a knee injury and his first career game with zero yards. San Francisco had 77 yards rushing. Jim Harbaugh’s NFC Westleading Niners rolled off their seventh straight victory to extend their best start since 1997, and matched the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers for the most wins in the NFL. “You’re as good as your record, and you’re as good as your last game,” 49ers quarterback Alex Smith said. “And we beat a really good football team.” The first half featured seven possessions, five field goals and no punts. A sizzling half for the kickers — with San Francisco leading 9-6 — turned into an offensive shootout late. Vernon Davis leaped from the 4-yard line over safety Kenny Phillips into the end zone to

What sort of university and football program will emerge from this wreckage is hard to say. Interesting, though, to note some of the same verbiage being used by the new leaders of both groups. “We will be completely open, transparent, and cooperate in any investigation that is lodged,” university president Rod Erickson said Saturday. “I’m going to address (questions) as honestly as I can, and be transparent with what happened here during the week,” interim coach Tom Bradley said shortly after Erickson left the dais at Beaver Stadium. They were speaking of two very disparate things -- an ongoing criminal investigation and personnel decisions for a football team. But it was an acknowledgment that the culture around the program was one of isolation and insulation. To use one example, the Nittany Lions’ coaching staff last had a

former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. “Well, I keep in mind this had nothing to do with the men on that team right now,” Corbett said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And I don’t think they should have to suffer because of the actions of maybe a few, including Mr. Sandusky. “But I think it is a question that not only should the (school’s internal investigation) take a look at, but one that the board of trustees should take a look at. I think that’s a question that has to be determined by the board of trustees, and I’d have to give that thought.” As governor, Corbett is an ex-officio member of the board and was part of the unanimous vote Wednesday night to fire coach Joe Paterno and accept the resignation of president Graham Spanier. Another potential hurdle could

over the top,” Fitzgerald said. He may have sent the Eagles over the edge. They never really had complete control of the 3-6 Cardinals, but never really lost a handle on the game until the end. During an ugly first half, Cardinals kicker Jay Feely missed two field goal attempts and Eagles corner Asante Samuel returned his interception 20 yards for a touchdown to give Philadelphia a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter. Fitzgerald’s first touchdown grab tied things up, but the Eagles came right back to regain an advantage on their next drive. Playing without game-breaking wide receiver/punt returner DeSean Jackson – deactivated for missing a special teams meeting earlier in the week – and playing with ailing receiver Jeremy Maclin (who suffered

shouder and hamstring injuries Sunday), the Eagles mixed things up. They used a 70-yard march peppered with a blend of short passes and runs that LeSean McCoy polished off with a 1yard burst into the end zone for a 14-7 Eagles lead just 17 seconds before halftime. Then Fitzgerald and the Cardinals spent the fourth quarter snatching it all away. “We’re so good,” Samuel said, “but we’re losing. “Can’t figure it out.” Maybe the Eagles can take a lesson from Fitzgerald’s mantra. Gotta find a way. “Well, we’re finding ways to lose games at this point in the season,” Eagles receiver Jason Avant said. “We’ve been doing everything we can to lose games. “We have to get it corrected fast.”

major change in 2004, as offensive coordinator Fran Ganter stepped down to take an administrative role following tragedy in his family. Galen Hall stepped into that position, with the play-calling being split with quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno. But for that entire season, no one was willing to divulge exactly how the system worked. After Saturday’s game, Bradley immediately broke down the shifts in the coaching staff following the firing of Joe Paterno and who had what responsibilities. “We made some changes we will continue to stick with,” Bradley said. “Ron Vanderlinden and Larry Johnson will handle our defense. Kermit Buggs will take over the whole secondary. “(Saturday), because of the situation, I helped signal in some things because I’ve done the signaling for the last 12 years. I didn’t want to drop that on them on a Thursday. I did call some defenses in the fourth quarter today. “Usually Wednesday night, (when Joe Paterno was fired), is my night to prep and Thursday is

a mental day for me. I didn’t feel that I could do justice to the players and the guys on the defense, who worked their tails off for me, and I didn’t think it was right that I would be somebody who would not give them the time that they deserve.” In the middle of the furor, Penn State players have had to try and reconcile that while continuing on with the season and their lives. “At the end of the day, we have to be about healing,” senior tackle Chima Okoli said. “We’re about the victims and their families. Because you can take the situation and let it hang over our university and our football program. But at the end of the day, as players, we didn’t have anything to do with it. And for us to be saddled with that, two days before a big game, it takes some fighting through. “But I do think there can be good come of this and I do think there can be healing. At the end of the day, I feel like that’s what we all need. We’re going to do our job, which is to play football, and hopefully some good can come of that.”

be securing an invite to a prestigious game. The Lions could take care of that matter themselves by winning the Big Ten title and earning an automatic bid to the Rose Bowl in January. Outside of that, top bowl games -- and the companies that sponsor them -- could be reluctant to associate with Penn State. Sponsorship logos have already disappeared from the backdrop curtain at Beaver Stadium’s media room. ESPN reported that one advertiser -- cars.com -- pulled its scheduled ads from the network’s broadcast of Saturday’s game against Nebraska, as well as for the upcoming Penn State-Ohio State broadcast. Assistant coach Jay Paterno made a joking reference to the issue Saturday by mentioning the school’s “corporate sponsor AT&T -- although they probably don’t want me to say that now.” The NCAA will wait for the criminal investigation to conclude before looking into whether sanc-

tions against Penn State are warranted, president Mark Emmert said last week. There is no clear indication how the scandal may have affected the Lions in this week’s polls. With the loss to the Cornhuskers, Penn State dropped nine spots to No. 21 in the latest BCS standings, which were released Sunday night. Two of the three components of the BCS are voter-based. The USA Today Coaches’ Poll -- comprised of 59 head coaches at FBS schools -ranked the Lions No. 21. The Harris Interactive Poll -- a panel of 115 former coaches, players and administrators, and current and former members of the media -placed Penn State at No. 19. The third component -- an average of computer formulas, and the only one that can’t read headlines -actually ranked the Lions lowest of all at No. 23. Additionally, Penn State fell to No. 21 in the voter-based Associated Press Poll, which is not part of the BCS formula.

STEELERS Continued from Page 1B

getting the ball. They got it twice when it mattered most. “We’re a great defense because of the way we play,” safety Ryan Clark said. “Turnovers tend to come in spurts. That’s what separates teams from being a great defense. Today, we were able to help us win it.” It all came together in a game the Steelers badly needed to stay in the middle of AFC North contention. Ben Roethlisberger led long, balanced drives while thousands of Steelers fans waved Terrible Towels amid the first sellout crowd of the season at Paul Brown Stadium. Mendenhall’s 9-yard run put the Steelers’ up 24-17 late in the third quarter, leaving it to the defense to finish the win off. First, linebacker Lawrence Timmons picked off a deflected pass, ending a drive at the Pittsburgh 33. William Gay pulled off the clincher, stepping in front of Jerome Simpson for an interception at the 19-yard line with 2:27 left. “Itwastwobigplaysthathelped change the game,” linebacker James Farrior said. “It was awesome. I’m especially proud of Wil-

complete a 31-yard touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter that put the 49ers ahead 20-13 after a 2-point conversion. Carlos Rogers followed with his second interception of the day. On the next play, Kendall Hunter sprinted for a 27-yard touchdown in the fourth to put San Francisco ahead by two touchdowns. David Akers kicked four field goals, setting up one with a surprise onside kick, as the 49ers won their most meaningful home game at Candlestick Park since coming from 24 points down to stun the Giants 39-38 in the NFC wild-card game on Jan. 5, 2003. That was one of the best comebacks in NFL playoff history and a monumental collapse for the Giants. Alex Smith led the comeback this time after Manning threw a go-ahead 13-yard touchdown pass to Manningham late in the third quarter. Manning then hit Hakeem Nicks for a 32-yard TD with 8:37 remaining before getting that last chance.

Manning completed an 18yard pass to Manningham on fourth-and-6 and then a 10-yarder to Victor Cruz on fourthand-5 on the last-ditch drive. Then he just overthrew Manningham running wide open toward the end zone with 2:52 left. “I should have laid out,” Manningham said. “Should have came down with it.” While it’s the 49ers defense that has been so dominant stopping the run — now 31 straight games without allowing a 100yard rusher — the Giants had to think they had solved San Francisco by stopping Gore. But Smith completed at least three passes to four different receivers, including tight end Delanie Walker’s six receptions for 69 yards. Gore, the two-time Pro Bowler, already was nursing a tender right ankle that has bothered him on several occasions this season before hurting his knee Sunday and watching much of the second half in a red jacket on the sideline.

liam Gay. You guys and even some of our fans really got on him this week.” Gay let Torrey Smith get behind him for a 26-yard touchdown catch with 8 seconds left in Baltimore’s 23-20 win at Pittsburgh last Sunday. Wasn’t going to happen again. Dalton handled most of what Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau threw at him until the end. He had two more touchdownpasses,givinghim14overall — the most by a rookie quarterback in his first nine games since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. He wasn’t sacked even though the Steelers blitzed him every way they could. “I felt like we had a really good grasp on what they were doing,” said Dalton, who was 15 of 30 for 170yards.“Evenwithallthemovements and shifts that they were doing, I still thought we had a good feel.” Until the fourth quarter. Dalton didn’t have top receiver A.J. Green on the field for those pivotal moments. Green, who leads all rookie NFL receivers, twisted his right knee when he landed awkwardly on a 36-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Green returned on the next series but was held out as a precaution after his knee tightened at halftime.

Roethlisberger was 21 of 33 for 245 yards with one touchdown and a deflected interception. He was sacked five times, matching his season high. Roethlisberger found Jerricho Cotchery uncovered in the end zone for a 16-yard score that got thousands of Terrible Towels waving. It was the fifth time in the last six games that the Steelers reached the end zone on their opening possession. Mendenhall ran 2 yards for a 14-0 lead on the Steelers’ next possession. At that point, Pittsburgh had a 132-8 advantage in yards. Dalton brought the Bengals back by doing what he does best — throw the ball Green’s way so he can make a game-changing play. After running away from the pass rush, Dalton passed 36 yards to Green, who went up between safeties Troy Polamalu and Clark to make the catch in the end zone. Then, the Steelers helped the Bengals (6-3) keep it close. Tight end Heath Miller bobbled a pass directly to cornerback Leon Hall for an interception that set up Mike Nugent’s 43-yard field goal, cutting it to 14-10. Miller had another bad moment late in the first half, wiping out an apparent touchdown with an interference penalty. Shaun Suisham’s 39-yard field goal gave Pittsburgh a 17-10 halftime lead.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2011 PAGE 5C

Family allows young girl’s birthday to be lost in 9/11 observance Dear Abby: Sept. 11 was the 10th birthday of our neighbors’ little girl, “Megan.” At church that day there was a lovely memorial prayer for the victims of 9/11, but no mention of Megan’s birthday among the other special occasions of the week. Megan’s family went to the cemetery, put flowers on the memorial there and went home. There was no party or cake for Megan. When I took over a card and a small gift, her mom thanked me but said the day was too sad for Megan to celebrate her birthday. She said they had never done so, not even on an alternate date. I don’t know this family very well.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE But I was flabbergasted that they would act this way. When I asked about the birthdays of the other family members, I was told that since none of them fall on a “bad day” they are celebrated with parties, gifts and everything. Megan was allowed to accept my gift and thanked me, but her mom made it clear this was to be an exception to the rule. Abby, what gives? — Completely Baffled in Wyoming Dear Completely Baffled: I have no idea. That family’s behavior is bizarre. What could possibly be gained

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

by punishing a child for being born on a particular day? What you have described isn’t respect for a day that was tragic for our country; it is cruelty to an innocent child.

We’re having a difficult time finding a compromise. I feel like I’ll never live up to her standards of what’s fun and entertaining. Any suggestions? — Date Night Dilemma in Chicago

Dear Abby: My wife and I disagree about what we should do on our date nights away from our daughters. She’s nine years younger than I am. I don’t feel comfortable going to dance clubs. I don’t like crowds, fighting to get the bartender’s attention for a drink or dancing with 25-year-olds. I’d prefer listening to live music, staying home and enjoying an empty house or going somewhere quiet for dinner. My wife thinks what I like is “boring” and this is creating issues in our marriage.

Dear Dilemma: Yes, two of them. The first is to take turns choosing what you’ll do on your date nights, so that you both have some of what you want. The second is to find some new activities you can enjoy as a couple.

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Abby: A woman at work is having a baby. I didn’t get around to contributing to her group gift. I also didn’t sign the card or mention my omission at the time of the baby shower. A few days later I received a thankyou note. The mother-to-be assumed

I contributed. Money is extremely tight right now. Saving the $20 I was going to spend will help my budget. I don’t think anyone picked up on my faux pas. Should I keep quiet? — Conflicted in Minnesota Dear Conflicted: I see no reason to announce that you didn’t participate in the baby gift. Not contributing because it would have caused financial strain wasn’t a breach of etiquette; it was prudent. If your name wasn’t on the gift card, you misled no one. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

GOREN BRIDGE WITH OMAR SHARIF & TANNAH HIRSCH PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will be startled awake by what you see in the world. It will help you appreciate what you have at home. You will be motivated to give the people you love your heartfelt time and attention. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you had miles and miles of time and no obligations, what would you do? In some small and possibly symbolic way, it is possible for you to add that activity to your day’s events. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are things you would love to do to help others, though you haven’t had the resources to pull it off in the past. Now your circumstances are changing, and you’ll soon be able to extend your aid to loved ones. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll choose certain people to follow, reach out to or spend time with. You don’t know why you like them; you just do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll observe others and make excellent guesses about what they need. Of course, you won’t know whether you’ve guessed correctly until you ask a direct question. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be in an independent mood and not very concerned about what others think. While they are limited by the formalities of a situation, you could not care less. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Confrontation makes you uncomfortable. So when someone declares “we need to talk,” as much as you try to stay in the moment and hear what’s being said, your legs will move toward the door to escape.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

HOW TO CONTACT: Dear Abby: PO Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you balance your needs with the needs of your loved ones, you’ll discover that you really don’t require that much to be happy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll resolve a situation and put the old issues to rest. Then it will be time to make new rules so that this sort of unpleasantness doesn’t happen again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are a firm advocate of loyalty when it comes to love, friendship, family and business. You’ll make a point not to associate with those who display disloyal tendencies. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will do what it takes to move ahead. It involves more money, research and study than you originally thought it would, but you’ll find the process enjoyable once you decide to have fun with it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone is different. You’ll note the differences and adjust your communication and behavior to make sure you come across clearly to the other person. Getting what you want depends on your ability to do this. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 14). You’ll simplify your life through the next 10 weeks, thus making your time more enjoyable. Many tender moments among loved ones happen in December and January. February brings new goals. Material benefits will come to you, especially in December, July and September. Capricorn and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 9, 20, 39 and 6.
