Luzerne County Controller Walter Griffith still questions the handling of the failed Hotel Sterling restoration project but defended county commissioners Thursday before they approved a $1 million allocation to demolish the landmark structure. “If we get a heavy snow and that building collapses, then everybody will be here complaining that the commissioners didn’t do anything,” Griffith said, adding that public safety must be the primary focus. The controller spoke during the Luzerne County Commissioners meeting. The building’s owner, the nonprofit CityVest, asked the county to take control of the project in April, saying it was out of funds and couldn’t come up with the estimated $26.8 million to $35.6 million to fully restore the 113-year-old building. Wilkes-Barre condemned the structure, but its onSee STERLING, Page 9A

Luzerne County Councilman-elect Edward Brominski exchanges words Thursday with Commissioner Maryanne Petrilla about the filling of positions before the new administration takes office.

Luzerne County Commissioners appointed four new members to county boards and created two new positions Thursday, despite requests to leave such decisions up to the incoming home rule administration. Councilman-elect Rick Williams went to the podium before the meeting to request a delay in board and authority appointments if possible. Commissioners went ahead and appointed two new members to the Luzerne County Community College Board of Trustees. John Bryan, Wilkes-Barre, will replace trustee See BOARDS, Page 9A

WILKES-BARRE -- In the shadow of the 2011 holiday tree, a few farmers and vendors sold their goods on a cold and gray Thursday at the

Farmers Market on Public Square, bringing an end to a tough year for growers. “It’s been lousy,” said Lisa Ryman, whose father, Art, has operated Ryman’s Farm for more than 50 years. “We had too much rain and not enough sun. I hope next year is better.” Ryman said the farm suffered from mold on pumpkins and sweet corn. Molly Kessler was working

the stand for the farm that has been operated by her family for more than 100 years. “It really wasn’t a very good year,” she said. “Not that it was bad, but I know we got rained out here three or four times.” Kessler said she will be packing potatoes and making cider over the next few weeks. And then she will begin work in her greenhouses.

“We don’t get much time to rest,” Kessler said. Brace’s Orchard of Dallas was selling apples and cider across from the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts.

Splitting of hearings into two parts is criticized for making area people travel just before Thanksgiving.

By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

HARRISBURG – The Legislative Reapportionment Commission will meet today to take public comment on the proposed state Senate and House district maps, but only for the half of the state from Harrisburg and west. Those wishing to be heard regarding concerns over new legislative lines in this area will have to wait until

Wednesday. The decision to split the state geographically could make matters easier for those wishing to be heard. But the choice to Blake hold the hearing the day before Thanksgiving has come under fire by a multitude of people, including state Sen. John Blake,

who represents part of Luzerne County. Charles O’Connor Jr., the executive director of the Legislative Reapportionment Commission, said the commission felt it was best to split the public meeting into multiple days so they didn’t run too long. He said doing it geographically seemed logical. And he said choosing Wednesday was necessitated by the House being in session both Monday

and Tuesday. He also pointed out that one need not attend a hearing to have his or her protests entered into the record and considered by the commission, which will vote to approve final maps for the new state Senate and House district boundaries for the next decade.

Plan to develop pig farm OK’d By TOM HUNTINGTON Times Leader Correspondent

SALEM TWP. – Paul D’Agostin of Will-O-Bet Farms, 139 Bomboy Lane, was given conditional approval Thursday by the township supervisors to undertake a swine-raising operation on his farm that, according to comments at a public hearing on Thursday, will house up to 4,800 pigs on his property. It was stated a barn of 40,000 square feet will be constructed on site and D’Agostin will serve as the facilitator and manager of the operation. Actual ownership of the swine will be the province of Country View Family Farms of Middletown. Dewey Shafer, growth and business development manager for Country View,

POLICE BLOTTER WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following: • Karen Rice of North Franklin Street reported Monday a male grabbed her hair and pushed her to the ground. • Shellie Campbell of the Hanover Village Apartments will be charged with criminal mischief after she knocked over and damaged a display stand in the Turkey Hill store on Hazle Avenue. • Christopher Cannon of North Washington Street reported Sunday a male punched him in the face in the area of North Pennsylvania and Conyngham avenues.

said his company will provide infant pigs to D’Agostin who will raise them to maturity and then they will be shipped by Country View to processing plants operated by Hatfield Meats. The supervisors conducted the hearing in order to comply with the township’s zoning code that restricts barn construction to 20,000 square feet and to obtain public comment about the proposed project. D’Agostin sought, and was given, a zoning variance, to construct a facility larger than stipulated by code. Public comment centered around odor, health, quality of life and real estate valuation issues. In the end, when Chairman Bob Pearse polled his col-

Wilkes-Barre police Thursday night responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Rite Aid Pharmacy on Amber Lane. Two men, one of them armed with a gun, walked into the store around 8:10 p.m., held it up and fled. Employees locked the store and police could be seen inside. Police with flashlights also searched a walkway along the parking lot. Since Sunday nearly 10 robberies or attempted robberies were reported in the area. Police Thursday charged a man with the Sunday night robbery of the Taco Bell fast food restaurant on Kidder Street and said he was a regular customer. He also is a ‘person of interest’ in several other robberies, police said.

Gas impact fee bill wins in House Most area legislators oppose the measure as favoring drillers. Next stop is Senate.

HARRISBURG – The state House of Representatives on Thursday passed GOP-backed House Bill 1950, which imposes an impact fee on gas drillers. The bill passed 107-76 and now moves to the Senate for consideration. State Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, was the only legislator from Luzerne County to vote in favor of the bill, which would levy a $40,000-per-well fee in the first year of production that would decline $10,000 each year in the second through fourth years and remain at $10,000 through the 10th year. About 75 percent of the revenue would go to local governments, and 25 percent to statewide initiatives. “This legislation is a fair compromise for the people of Pennsylvania and the natural gas industry,” Toohil said. “I believe it protects both our citizens and the

Shafer said agricultural officials from Penn State University conduct a site assessment and they found that a swine operation can be conducted with little public impact. When questioned by Pearse, Shafer acknowledged the importation and exportation of pigs will be by tractor-trailer. Over the course of a year, he estimated that 79 motorized units will

Although a variance was approved, Karen Karchner, codes enforcement officer, said construction and site permits have not as yet been issued and when a question arose about an Environmental Impact Statement, she said she wasn’t aware of an environmental study being done.

environment and, at the same time, allows for continued job growth in an industry that holds such great economic promise for our state.” State Rep. Karen Boback, RHarveys Lake, said she prided herself “on voting with my constituents on this issue” when she cast a no vote. “Of the hundreds of comments I have received, not one person suggested I should vote for this legislation.” Boback said the bill does not go far enough to protect the water and air, and “usurps the rights of local governments. While I did support amendments to increase local control in comparison to the original language, these revisions did not go far enough.” Boback said the bill fails to address gas pipelines laid in nondrilling counties. Luzerne County, in which pipelines and compressor stations are planned, “deserves an opportunity to collect an impact fee and rectify any problems caused by the industry,” she said. State Reps. Phyllis Mundy, D-

Kingston, and Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, respectively called the bill “an early Christmas present for big oil and gas” and “a bad bill for the taxpayers.” Mundy said the bill “raises little revenue from corporations that are making huge profits from the Commonwealth’s natural resources, erodes local control over drillers and gives the secretary of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources nearly unfettered power to take land for this industry” through eminent domain. Pashinski said the bill’s effective maximum tax rate of 1 percent per well was “extremely low” compared to other natural gas producing states, such as Texas’ 5.5 percent and West Virginia’s 6 percent rates. “Polls show the public overwhelmingly supports a fair tax on drillers, but this bill is nothing more than political cover for many Republicans,” he said. The Senate on Tuesday separately passed a companion bill that removed more authority over drilling from local government. The two bills must now be reconciled.

KINGSTON TWP. – Residents expressed environmental and safety concerns about the proposed expansion of Buck Mountain Quarry at a meeting Thursday hosted by the state Department of Environmental Protection. An application states John Brdaric, owner of the quarry and Brdaric Excavating, would like to expand the operation by about 40 acres and increase mining depth in one area by 100 feet. The quarry is located in Kingston Township, though the site’s access road is located off Main Street in

Public record will remain open in the application until Dec. 1. Anyone who wishes to make a public statement on the Buck Mountain Quarry expansion can send written comments to the Pottsville District Mining Office, 5 W. Laurel Blvd., Pottsville, PA 17901.

Swoyersville resident Corine Coniglio brought a petition opposing the expansion signed by 150 borough residents.Citizens’ concerns ranged from water runoff problems to increased truck traffic in the Swoyersville area. Joseph Martarano, the project engineer, said most of the water runoff issues residents are concerned about are related to a mine reclamation project completed in 2008 that is across from Brdaric’s property.

A city man filed a petition in Luzerne County Court earlier week asking a judge to order the city to hand over credit card statements he said he is permitted to see because of a state Office of Open Records order. Joseph Wielgosz, of New Grant Street, filed the petition Monday in his attempt to obtain credit card statements dating back to 2004 because he says city officials only handed over 29 of the requested 42 statements. The statements, court papers say, include those belonging to former city administrator J.J. Murphy; current administrator Marie McCormick and Mayor Thomas Leighton. Wielgosz said he is seeking an order by a county judge to have the statements handed over. Judge Tina Polachek Gartley set a hearing for Dec. 12 to resolve the issue. Wielgosz maintains the city violated state law by not handing over the documents, and also violated an order by the state Office of Open Records filed on Sept. 28.

Pennsylvania National Guard members and reservists who were recently deployed for 60 or more days may soon be eligible for reduced-fee hunting licenses, thanks to a bill sponsored by Sen.

Current law requires Guard members and reservists to be deployed for at least 180 days in the prior 24 months in order to qualify for the discounted license, but Baker’s bill reduces the program’s required time limit to 60 days.

WILKES-BARRE – A self-proclaimed “goody-two-shoes” and a friend who openly admits he had been a “complete garbage head” will open a church on Public Square in January. Called the “Church on the Square,” pastors Vince O’Boyle and Louis Smyth say they want to help people turn their lives around by finding and truly believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. The non-denominational church – “kind of Pentecostal” – is not affiliated with any organized religion. It will open at 52 Public Square next to Leo Matus News.

Christ.” Public Square has restaurants, offices, a hotel, theater and retail stores, but the addition of a place of worship is not without precedent. The Wyoming Valley’s first church – the Wilkes-Barre Meeting House – was on Public Square. It was built in 1791 and was referred to as Old Ship Zion. The new Church on the Square is not large. “It’s a small space,” O’Boyle said. “But you can’t despise small beginnings; it’s okay to start off small.” The interior of the rented space is being painted and the pastors hope to find a donor or good deal on carpeting. “We’re hoping God will help us

WILKES-BARRE–AMountainTopmanwas acquitted Thursday of all charges relating to a case in which investigators say he raped a then-23-year-old woman in a vacant parking lot near the former Murray’s Inn in Wilkes-Barre in October 2005. Daryl Boich, 44, was found not guilty of rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and sexual assault after a jury of nine men and three women deliberated for three and a half hours. Boich, a former athletic coach and local restaurant owner, cried as the verdict was read while family members cheered. “Thank you,” Boich told his attorney, Todd Henry, and members of his family. Boich had faced a four-daylong trial.

Boich became “pushy” the they did was woman testified, forcing her kiss. to perform oral sex, and she then demanded she be taken home. That’s when, the woman alleged, Boich pulled her out of the car and raped her. “I was scared. I tried to stop it, but he was too strong. I wanted to get out of there,” the woman said. Boich’s testimony Thursday pained a different story. Boich, married for 16 years, testified he never offered the woman a ride home and the only thing they did was kiss. “She’s being untruthful. That’s a fact,” Boich said. Boich testified the woman was drunk and did not want to leave after the two had been kissing, and that she became mad when Boich said he was driving to his home in Mountain Top. The woman got out of his vehicle, he said, and a week later he found out he was being accused of raping her. “I’ve never been in any trouble other than a parking ticket,” Boich said. The case had been delayed a number of years because of appeals in both the state Superior and Supreme courts regarding a psychiatric examination of the victim in the case.

Regular customer charged in Taco Bell robbery, also eyed in other incidents By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Daniel Ungarsky was a regular customer at Taco Bell on Kidder Street until he allegedly robbed the restaurant on Sunday, according to charges filed. When he wasn’t happy getting $1 and $5 bills, he demanded higher denominations from an employee, police allege. Ungarsky, 27, of North Washington Street, Wilkes-Barre, was arraigned Thursday in Wilkes-Barre Central Court on three counts of robbery, and one count each of theft and receiv-

ing stolen property. He remained jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000

bail. Ungarsky has been jailed at the county correctional facility since Monday afternoon on a parole violation. He is suspected in robberies at two dollar stores, a restaurant and a food mart Monday morning, authorities said.

According to the criminal complaint: A female employee told police a man, identified as Ungarsky, entered the restaurant at about 6:35 p.m. Sunday and passed a note that stated, “Give me the money now.” Ungarsky told the employee, “I have a (expletive) gun, I’ll shoot you. Don’t hit the panic button. Don’t tell anyone. Open the drawers and give me the money.” The employee handed Ungarsky several $1 and $5 bills. Ungarsky then asked where were the $100, $50 and $20 bills,

the criminal complaint says. Ungarsky was told Taco Bell does not accept large bills. He instructed the employee to open a second cash register, allegedly getting away with a small amount of money. Another employee told police Ungarsky was a regular customer. Police said that an employee identified Ungarsky from a photo array. Ungarsky is a "person of interest" in robberies on Monday at Dollar General in Kingston Township and Family Dollar in Pringle. His description matches a suspect in attempted rob-

beries at McDonald’s on Kidder Street, Wilkes-Barre, and at Uni Mart on North Main Street, Plains Township, on Monday, authorities said. No charges have been filed in the robberies and attempted heists that were reported on Monday. Ungarsky was sentenced on Sept.14 by county Senior Judge Joseph Augello to 14 months probation on a charge of unauthorized use of a vehicle, according to court records. Court records indicate Ungarsky had robbery and drug convictions in 2007.

Dallas hold tax line as 2012 budget approved

DALLAS – Council approved the proposed 2012 budget at a meeting Wednesday evening. The $1,155,000 spending plan has no tax increases for next year. The property tax rate in the borough is currently 1.28 mills. A mill is $1 for every $1,000 in assessed property value. The earned income tax rate will stay the same at 0.5 percent, and the real estate transfer tax will remain 1 percent. Borough Manager Tracey Carr said expenses were mostly unchanged. She said there are many projects ongoing after Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee

Pittston’s 2012 taxes will remain the same

PITTSTON – Tax rates for Pittston city will remain unchanged for 2012. The city council unanimously agreed Wednesday night to keep the property tax at 6.85 mills, the earned income and real estate transfer taxes at 1 percent and the local services tax at $52. Mayor Jason Klush and City Manager Joseph Moskovitz also made it a point to thank the city’s voters for approving a home rule charter and home rule study commission during last week’s election. The city will now look to swear in the seven home rule study commission members within the next two weeks so that the process can get under way as soon as possible. By Moskovitz’s count, the home rule ballot measure passed by a margin of 66 percent to 33 percent.

In other business, the council heard the complaints of Joe Tubioli and his sister Anne Marie Beddington regarding a property dispute. Tubioli, a Jenkins Township resident at 379 S. Main St., feels that his neighbor on South Main Street is developing his property without the proper permits. Moskovitz agreed the resident was in violation but contended a public meeting was not the proper place to deal with the issue. He also stated the city is doing all that it can to rectify the situation. Council member Mike Lombardo stated he was aware of the situation and had brought it to Moskovitz’s attention months ago. “The problem is that the laws don’t give us a lot of teeth,” he said.

Hundreds arrested as Occupy movement shows strength

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, of Idaho Falls, made his first court appearance before a federal magistrate in Pittsburgh on Thursday, one day after he was arrested at a western Pennsylvania hotel. If convicted, Ortega faces up to life in prison.

NEW YORK — Occupy Wall Street protesters clogged streets and tied up traffic around the U.S. on Thursday to mark two months since the movement’s birth and signal they aren’t ready to quit, despite the breakup of many of their encampments by police. Hundreds of people were arrested, most of them in New York. The demonstrations — which took place in cities including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boston, Washington and Portland, Ore. — were for the most part peaceful. Most of the arrests were for blocking streets, and the traffic disruptions were brief. Chanting “All day, all week, shut down Wall Street,” more than 1,000 protesters gathered near the New York Stock Exchange and sat down in several intersections. Helmeted police officers broke up some of the gatherings, and operations at the stock market were not disrupted. As darkness fell, a coalition of unions and progressive groups joined Occupy demonstrators in staging rallies at landmark bridges in several U.S. cities to protest joblessness. In New York, a crowd of several thousand people, led by banner-carrying

members of the Service Employees International Union, jammed Manhattan’s Foley Square and then marched peacefully across the Brooklyn Bridge on a pedestrian promenade. As they walked, a powerful light projected the slogan “We are the 99 percent” — a reference to the Americans who aren’t super-rich — on the side of a nearby skyscraper. Police officers dressed in wind breakers, rather than riot gear, arrested at least two dozen people who walked out onto the bridges’ roadway but otherwise let the marchers pass without incident.

The protests came two days after police raided and demolished the encampment at lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park that had served as headquarters of the Occupy movement and as demonstrators and union allies tried to regain their momentum. At least 200 people were arrested in New York. Some were bloodied during the arrests. One man was taken into custody for throwing liquid, possibly vinegar, into the faces of several police officers, authorities said. Many demonstrators were carrying vinegar as an antidote for pepper spray.

A TORNADO OF LEAVES

ROCK HILL, S.C.

Tornado outbreak deadly

Survivors told of cowering in closets or running for a sturdy bathroom a day after a tornado-spawning storm system passed through the Southeast, flattening homes and killing at least six people in three states. Across the region, dozens more were injured, scores of buildings were damaged and thousands were without power. Meteorologists confirmed Thursday that tornadoes had struck Louisiana and Alabama a day earlier and twisters were suspected in Mississippi, Georgia and the Carolinas. “It looked like the ‘Wizard of Oz,”’ Henry Taylor said, describing a funnel cloud outside his home near Rock Hill. “It was surreal, and for a moment, a split second, you say to yourself ‘This ain’t real,’ then reality sets in, and you know it is.”

A jammed lock on an airline bathroom door caused anxious moments for the pilots aboard a flight from North Carolina to New York City. The captain told air traffic controllers he accidentally got stuck on the LaGuardia Airport-bound Chatauqua Airlines flight from Asheville on Wednesday night. A radio exchange reveals that a passenger with an unfamiliar accent tried to alert the co-pilot in the cockpit. The co-pilot became alarmed and notified air traffic controllers. A controller told him to consider declaring an emergency. A longer recording obtained by the New York Post shows the captain eventually freed himself from the lavatory. He told controllers there was no threat.

MADRID — Fear, that contagious emotion, spread from country to country in Europe on Thursday as panicky investors worried the euro currency union could be heading toward an ugly breakup. Spain and even France, one of the continent’s core economic engines, were forced to pay sharply higher interest rates to raise cash to fund government spending. While the European Central Bank was suspected of intervening in bond markets to fight the rise in the borrowing rates, many analysts say it needs to act more aggressively to contain the crisis. But Germany, Europe’s paymaster, once again blocked any such move on concerns it would let profligate governments off the hook. Uncertainty is now even eroding the appeal of top AAA-rated government bonds from countries like France as investors prepare for worst-case scenarios like the deconstruction of the eurozone. In Spain, an auction of 10-year government bonds left the country paying interest rates of nearly 7 percent. That’s the highest rate since 1997 and a level that economists see as unsustainable. Greece and Ireland received rescue loans from the European Union after their bond yields jumped above the same level. Across the border, France had to pay 1.85 percent to sell twoyear bonds, up from 1.31 percent at the last auction in October.

The population shift will have implications for medical care, social programs, report says.

Suspected U.S. drones fired four missiles at a compound in Pakistan’s rugged tribal region near the Afghan border on Thursday, killing eight alleged militants and wounding two others in the third such strike in as many days, Pakistani intelligence officials said. Elsewhere in the tribal region, Pakistani security forces pounded militant hideouts in two different areas, killing 37 suspected militants, said government officials. The figures could not be independently verified because of the difficulty of reporting in the tribal region. The drones struck in the Ramzak area of North Waziristan, the main hub for Taliban and al-Qaida militants in Pakistan, said the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to reporters.

China growing wary as Obama expands reach in Pacific By CHRISTOPHER BODEEN Associated Press

BEIJING — President Barack Obama’s sudden moves to contest rising Chinese power are setting this capital on edge, even if in public the response has been muted. During his ongoing nine-day swing through the Asia-Pacific region, Obama has already unveiled a plan for an expanded U.S. Marines presence in Australia, advocated a new free-trade area that leaves China out, and called on Beijing not to buck the current world order. The Beijing government is trying to understand the shift, tasking academic experts to review the initiatives and submit options on how to respond. “The U.S. is overreacting,” said Zhu Feng, an international relations expert at Peking University who was asked to study Washington’s moves and make recommendations. Meanwhile, state media

LOS ANGELES — The number of Americans at least 90 years old has tripled in recent decades, according to a government analysis released Thursday, a major shift in population that has implications for social policy, especially regarding housing and health care. The population of people in that age group has grown since the 1980 census to 1.9 million, according to the report released by the Census Bureau and supported by the National Institute on Aging. Further, it could quadruple in the next four decades, the report notes. That means that, by mid-century, 20 percent of the total population of the United States will be a person at least 65 and one in 10 of those people will be at least 90. Individuals within this aging population will likely have at least one disability, will live alone or will live in a nursing home. They’re also more likely to be female, because women live longer than men, and will likely be significantly poor.

Back Mt. project seeking help The Community Partnership wants to build an emergency control center for the area. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. – Members of the Back Mountain Community Partnership discussed outreach to non-member municipalities Thursday in search of supporters for a grant application. The partnership is currently working on a grant application to build a centrally-located emergency control center in the Back Mountain. The site that has been chosen is a former medical building that was purchased last year by the Dallas Fire & Ambulance Co.

with a similar purpose in mind. The proposed site would include space for each municipality to store emergency equipment, a control center for the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency, meeting rooms for the partnership and other organizations and sleeping quarters for evacuees in emergency situations. Members developed the idea for the center after Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee swept through the Back Mountain, knocking down trees and power lines and effecting hundreds of residents. Vice Chairman John Wilkes Jr., of Jackson Township, suggested soliciting the support of neighboring communities, such as Harveys Lake borough and Ross,

Lake and Fairmount townships. Chairman James Reino Jr., of Kingston Township, said it should be noted to those municipalities that space would be available for them to utilize the center as well. He also suggested soliciting the support of local school districts and fire and ambulance companies because it’s a public safety issue. In other news, partnership members discussed the passage of state Senate Bill1100 with Tom

Yoniski, a representative from state Sen. Lisa Baker’s office. The amended bill sets further regulations on natural gas activities in the state and requires an impact fee on unconventional wells. One amendment on the bill states an applicant can request the state attorney general to review local zoning laws to determine whether an ordinance is reasonable, rather than eliminating local zoning control completely. Yoniski said Baker voted in favor of the bill, despite disagreeing with anything that would take away zoning control from municipalities. He said she supported many of the provisions for local emergency responders and specific guidelines to ensure public safety.

Lawsuit by former veteran affairs head in mediation

Two sides in suit will try to work out a settlement, avoiding going to trial. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A lawsuit filed by former Luzerne County Veterans Affairs Director Richard Wren against the county and two commissioners has been sidetracked into mandatory mediation less than eight weeks after it was filed. “They pick a certain percentage of cases to go into mediation,” and the selection process is random, said Attorney John Dean, who is helping defend the county. “It’s a useful tool if you get the right case. It may or may not be good in this case.” Dean noted that the case is “in its infancy.” A “case management” teleconference was just scheduled Wednesday for Dec. 14. The paperwork ordering the mediation notes that conference will now be used to “further discuss the mediation of this case as well as formally appointing a mediator.” Dean said the court has “a pan-

el of approved mediators” who don’t get paid. The two sides meet with the mediator and try to work out a settlement, avoiding trial. Typically the effort only lasts one day, so if it fails it is not a major delay in the trial. Wren, a U.S. Army veteran living in Wilkes-Barre, was terminated by the county commissioners Sept. 24, 2009. He allegedly told an employee to falsify a $70 receipt. He filed the suit in September, asking to get his job back and be paid damages in excess of $75,000. The suit names county Commissioners Maryanne Petrilla and Steven Urban, contending they worked together to get rid of supporters of former Commissioner Greg Skrepenak, who is about midway through a twoyear sentence on federal corruption charges. Wren acknowledges he campaigned for Skrepenak, who opposed the firing when the commissioners voted to terminate Wren. Wren’s suit also contends he was fired because of his age as well as his political leanings. He is 52, and was replaced by James Spagnola, who was 45 at the time.

on track. Pipeline supporters say the $7 billion pipeline would carry hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil a day and create 20,000 construction jobs and billions of dollars in tax dollars and economic activity. “I am very disappointed by the president’s decision to punt on the Keystone XL pipeline project,” Barletta said. “The extended pipeline and expanded volume of energy that would move through this new system would create jobs and lower the price of energy. President Obama has put political considerations ahead of the needs of the American people and the security of the American economy.” Barletta and Marino said they worry that if the pipeline isn’t built, the tar sands oil could be sent to China instead. “This poorly thought decision underscores his failure to lead and makes it clear that the president’s only goal is to be reelected,” Marino said. “In addition to creating thousands of desperately needed jobs, this pipeline would have helped diversify our nation’s energy sources and would have reduced our dependence on foreign countries, particularly unstable countries in the Middle East.” But Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, had a more optimistic take on the situation. Casey believes that “those representing interests on both sides are working together on a balanced approach … that recognizes both the economic implications and the need to protect our nation’s resources,” a Casey spokeswoman said.

W-B’s budget is approved

President Obama has delayed pipeline that would transport Canadian oil to Texas

WASHINGTON – Republican Reps. Lou Barletta and Tom Marino charge that President Barack Obama is putting politics ahead of job creation and sound energy policy by delaying a decision on whether to approve the Keystone pipeline. TransCanada’s proposed pipeline carrying oil extracted from tar sands in Alberta through Nebraska and down to Texas – not coming near Pennsylvania despite its name – would create thousands of jobs and lower the United States’ dependence on Middle East oil, say Barletta, of Hazleton, and Marino, of Lycoming Township. The State Department was due to make a recommendation – its responsibility because the project comes into the country from Canada – by the end of the year. But Obama was besieged by battling constituencies – labor unions eager for the construction jobs and environmentalists who charged that tar sands oil is particularly dirty and that the pipeline construction and potential spills could wreak environmental havoc. After big demonstrations in Washington and an uproar in Nebraska, including by some Republican officials, over the pipeline’s route through the environmentally delicate Sandhills region and Ogallala aquifer, a vital regional water source, the State Department announced that no decision would be rendered until 2013 – after the 2012 elections -- and Obama said he supported the delay. Earlier this week, TransCanada said it would be willing to move the route of the pipeline in Nebraska to avoid sensitive areas in a bid to keep the project

WILKES-BARRE – On a 3-0 vote, city council approved the 2012 budget totaling $44.8 million. Council Chairwoman Kathy Kane, Vice Chairman Mike Merritt and Councilman Rick Cronauer voted for the budget. Council members Tony Thomas Jr. and Bill Barrett and Mayor Tom Leighton did not attend Thursday’s meeting. The tax millage rate will remain at 96.63 mills. A mill is a tax of $1 on every $1,000 of assessed property valuation. The budget, first revealed on Oct. 13, calls for an increase in spending of nearly $1 million in 2012, but there won’t be a tax hike, city fees will remain the same and no employees will be furloughed. Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former towing contractor, objected to the budget that contains $50,000 in revenue from L.A.G. Towing – the company that replaced Kadluboski’s City Wide Towing. “I want council, especially the new people coming in, to know that this contract is a ripoff of people who get their cars towed and of the insurance companies,” Kadluboski said. Merritt and Barrett were reelected on Nov. 8. The three new council members attended the session – Maureen Lavelle, George Brown and Tony George. None offered comment to Kadluboski’s statements. Frank Sorick, who ran for the Republican nomination for mayor and lost to Lisa Cope, asked council why the meeting began at 5 p.m. Sorick said he was told it was advertised to start at 5:30 p.m. City Clerk Jim Ryan showed him a copy of

the advertisement that had the 5 p.m. start. Several people showed up after the meeting was over. Council met in work session at 5 p.m. and the regular meeting began about 5 minutes later. At the regular meeting, Brenda Meehan retold her story that she first revealed publicly at a Leighton town hall meeting on Oct. 4. Meehan said a relative who lives next door had dated city Police Chief Gerard Dessoye, and the two are still friends. Meehan said there is drug activity at the McLean Street residence. Over three years, Brenda Meehan claimed, she contacted police about 100 times about activities at the house, thefts from her property and

other complaints, and city police responded about one-third of the time. Meehan asked council for help. She said Dessoye has provided a “halo of protection” for the activities at the house. Kane advised Meehan to consult an attorney, and Merritt suggested she continue to call the police. Cronauer did not offer comment. Drew McLaughlin, administrative coordinator for the city, said Dessoye and Leighton declined to comment on Mee-

han’s allegations. “These accusations are baseless and the city will not justify them with a detailed response,” McLaughlin said. “The city is confident the police department has responded properly to every call they have received.” McLaughlin said the person Meehan referred to has been arrested seven times in the last two years. “That can be verified through department records,” he said.

away early Wednesday morning, November 16, 2011, in the Hospice of the Visiting Nurses Association Inpatient Unit at St. Luke’s Villa, following a prolonged illness.

Coughlin High School, WilkesBarre, class of 1980. During his years at Coughlin, he was known as the infamous “One and Only CHS Banana Man,” the school’s unofficial mascot who would lead fans and classmates in cheers at pep rallies and football games, with his famed “Go Bananas” cheer. Until illness caused his early retirement, Artie was employed as a supervisor for over five years at the Cardinal Glass Company in the Crestwood Industrial Park, Mountain Top. Previously, he had been employed by Schiel’s Family Market, George Avenue, in the Parsons section of the city, in the store’s stock room.

Artie served as a former vice president, was a member of the board of governors, and would often tend bar for the membership. He held an endearing place in his heart and will miss the many friends he made there over the years in his special seat in “the shoe.” Those who knew him were often entertained by his rendition of Mick Jagger, and the Dancing Santa Travolta at various club functions and weddings he attended. He and his wife, the former Mary Jo Parsnik, celebrated 28 years of married life together on April 23, 2011. In addition to his parents, Arthur and Carol, and his beloved wife, Mary Jo, all of North Wilkes-Barre, Artie is survived by his two beautiful daughters, Amber Lynn Fisk, Wilkes-Barre, and Shari Fisk, at home; brothers, David Fisk and his wife, Desiree, Wilkes-Barre, and

CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER

Brian Shiner of Kingston holds up photos showing deteriorating condition of Sterling Hotel’s interior. He asked the commissioners not to take down the hotel.

STERLING Continued from Page 1A

ly offering toward demolition is a $260,000 state gaming fund allocation that had already been earmarked for the Sterling. The county has a vested interest in the more than 3-acre site because it loaned CityVest $6 million, which was largely spent to demolish an attached 14-story high-rise, clean up environmental hazards and acquire two adjoining land parcels. Griffith said commissioners should work with the incoming home rule county council members to attempt to force CityVest to repay funds for the project. Commissioners say the county will take ownership of the property after demolition so some money could be recouped when the land is sold. Several people offered opinions: Area resident Ed Gustitus told commissioners the land is probably worth less than $1 million, which means the county will be out millions of dollars. He also said the new council members should be involved in negotiations with CityVest before money is provided for demolition. Kingston resident Brian Shiner said efforts should be made to salvage the exterior shell of the first two floors, if nothing else. “At least preserve some history in this valley because we seem to have a notion that we have to tear everything down from our past,” Shiner said. He said CityVest led the public to believe the building was being preserved. Shiner said he believes no more

county funding should go to the project. Kingston Township resident Tom Dombroski said the Sterling is a danger and should be torn down as soon as possible. Commissioner Stephen A. Urban, who was elected to council, said nobody has stepped forward to develop the site, and the business community is suffering from the blight and traffic jams caused by safety barriers around the structure at North River and Market streets. The $1million will come from a community development business loan fund that is supposed to be used for economic development. Urban said new council members will likely have a say in the project because he does not believe the demolition contract will be awarded before the council is seated Jan. 2. “You can’t just knock it down. A study has to be done on how to proceed with demolition,” said Urban who estimated that the building could be leveled in January or February.

August Piazza and will serve through November 2017. Joseph A. Bauman, Wyoming, will fill a seat vacated by Elaine Maddon Curry, who resigned because she was elected to county council. That term expires next May. Certified public accountant Barry H. Williams, Kingston, was reappointed to a term that expires November 2017. Two new members were appointed to the county Planning Commission: Patrice Rittenhouse Persico, Kingston Township, through December 2014, and John C. Eichorn, Mountain Top, through December 2013. Commissioners also voted as county Salary Board members to create a new prison deputy warden position at $63,735 and an archivist position with a salary ranging from $40,000 to $45,000. Commissioners said they won’t fill the archivist position before leaving office.

the commission, specifying that they could not attend the hearing but would like their comments entered into the record. Comments can be sent through Nov. 30. Watchdog weighs in Eric Epstein, a community advocate with RocktheCapital, said the schedule is not a surprise to him or others who act as watchdogs to government. “Essentially they’re telling the public they really don’t want their input,” Epstein said. “It’s an intentional ploy by the legislature to dampen attendance.” Not so, said O’Connor. “I was stuck,” he said, adding that he didn’t want to rush people at today’s hearing so he thought a second hearing would give people the time to talk at length without being cut off.

Brominski: Hold off Councilman-elect Edward Brominski urged commissioners to hold off on the personnel actions, saying the home rule administration taking over Jan. 2 may have different opinions about the need for positions and the appropriate salaries. He also criticized commissioners for proceeding with plans to negotiate the purchase of a North Washington Street building for records storage, saying the nearby Hollenback Golf Course is prone to flooding. He said records should not be stored in a building that close to an area that floods. Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla fired back, pointing out Brominski’s actions as a lame duck county commissioner after the November 1983 election – information she culled from a large meeting minute book she brought to the meeting. Petrilla said Brominski voted to hire a county inspector, even though election victor Frank Trinisewski begged him not to do it until the new adminis-

tration was seated, Petrilla said. She said the minutes show Brominski made several appointments to county authorities and personnel actions that December. “There were numerous hirings and salary adjustments with 10 days to go,” Petrilla told him. “I’m not sure what back in ’83 is different than today.” “We didn’t change government in ’83. We’re changing government now,” Brominski replied, complaining that commissioners “let this county down” and pointing to the more than $400 million debt. “I took an oath of office until Dec. 31 of 2011, and I’m going to fulfill my duties until then,” Petrilla said. Brominski said he expects the new administration will be forced to raise taxes after inheriting an unbalanced budget. Commissioners have said they will pass a realistic, balanced 2012 budget. After the meeting, Brominski stressed that he balanced the budget for all four years of his administration and left the county with a half-million dollar

mission, said the entire process has been political, and he blamed Republicans for looking out for the best interests of their party rather than constituents. “I am very concerned with the level of openness in the process. While there has been talk about transparency and open government – there has been little action to reflect these ideals,” Costa said. “The hearing schedule has been a source of consternation,” said Blake, D-Archbald. “The fact that the schedule has folks from the entire eastern half of the state driving to Harrisburg on one of the busiest travel days of the year is one of the reasons Senate Democrats asked for additional hearings. This plan is something we are going to have to live with for 10 years. Unfortunately, our request was denied.” Erik Arneson, a spokesman for commission member and Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, R-Chester, said the schedule is always a point of contention for some.

“Any date chosen for a public hearing will be convenient for some people and inconvenient for others. Criticizing the choice of dates is remarkably petty.” He said the commission has been more than fair in allowing the public to offer their input in a variety of ways. “This commission has been more committed to receiving public input than any previous commission, both at public hearings and through the first-ever website dedicated to redistricting.” Constitutional mandate Spurred by new census data, the state must carry out the constitutional mandate of one person, one vote by ensuring each district is equally represented in Harrisburg. In the House, each district will represent about 62,253 constituents; in the Senate, it’s 254,048. This means some growth areas, such as the Poconos and Lancaster areas, will see changes. So too will those areas like Philadelphia and the western half, that have

surplus. Insurance coverage Lehman Township resident Edward Warkevicz and county Controller Walter Griffith asked commissioners to postpone renewal of a contract with DGK Insurance and Financial Services, Factoryville. Both men said they have concerns with the company’s performance. Commissioners voted to pay the company $35,000 to provide insurance advising services through 2012. County Chief Clerk/Manager Doug Pape defended the company, saying it helped the county boost insurance coverage while saving more than $250,000. Petrilla said during the meeting that commissioners want to meet with the council-elect to brief them on pending litigation, the budget and other issues. She said her assistant is in the process of scheduling a meeting. Councilmen-elect Tim McGinley, Rick Morelli and Gene Kelleher also attended Thursday’s meeting. seen population dips. The impact of redistricting will be felt locally as the commission’s proposal calls for numerous municipalities -- and in some cases, portions of them -- to be part of a new legislative district. For example, Plains and Pittston townships would be split between state House districts. Currently Plains Township is represented solely by Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre and Pittston Township is represented by Mike Carroll, D-Avoca. Carroll has requested a chance to be heard at Wednesday’s hearing. So too have former Speaker of the House Keith R. McCall, DFountain Hill; former Scranton Mayor James McNulty; Carbon County Commissioner William O’Gourek and those from Pike, Northampton and Monroe counties. O’Connor said more than 300 people have contacted the commission to offer feedback. He said they can continue to do so at http://www.redistricting.state.pa.us/Contact.cfm.

Pringle delays new burn law

Borough council holds up action on the proposal to allow for discussion. By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

PRINGLE – Borough council voted Thursday evening to table a controversial ordinance that would allow residents to purchase permits to burn refuse within the borough limits. Council decided to delay action on the ordinance until there was discussion on the issue. Council President Michael Berish said the ordinance, if adopted, would help the borough raise additional funds through the sale of permits.

Some residents expressed support at past council meetings for outdoor burning as a means to save costs with garbage pickup, but others have opposed it for environmental, health and safety reasons. Pringle residents may burn only leaves, paper, boxes and wood in approved burn barrels under the borough’s current burning ordinance. Council members agreed to contract with Ken Sheffler to act as the borough’s code enforcement officer at a fee not to exceed $2,400 per year. Berish appointed a committee to meet with Sheffler to coordinate his duties according the borough code ordinances. In other business, council vot-

ed unanimously to appoint Pennsylvania Municipal Retirement System as the borough’s new pension coordinator. Councilman Joe Piazza said the new administrator is seeking an annual $750 state contribution for each municipal employee enrolled in the plan. Berish read two recent letters from Councilwoman Joyce Evans, one tendering her resignation for council and the second rescinding her letter of resignation. No reasons were given concerning Evans’ actions.

Former AG Tom Corbett should have acted sooner

I

n a recent TV interview Gov. Tom Corbett said he was aware of the investigation at Penn State University years ago. At the time, wasn’t he attorney general for Pennsylvania? If so, why didn’t he advise the university at that time that an investigation was going on involving alleged child abuse by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and recommend that it put Sandusky on suspension and forbid him from contact with any children or young adults until the investigation was finished? I guess it was all right for them to let coach Joe Paterno be the fall guy when this all could have been nipped in the bud. If you’re a politician, you can just point the finger elsewhere for the blame. We love you, “JoePa,” and bless you on all you accomplished! Ken Weber Falls

Reader: End mudslinging in Plymouth elections

T

HE CHILD sex-abuse scandal at Penn State University has revealed a serious flaw in Pennsylvania’s open-records law that should be corrected immediately. The law mandating public access to records should apply to any institution that gets taxpayer money, but it doesn’t. Penn State and three other universities – Lincoln, Temple and Pittsburgh – are exempt because they are only partly funded by the state. The exemption has allowed Penn State to block access to information about former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who is accused of sexually abusing young boys on campus. Documents that could reveal what university officials knew and what steps they took to protect innocent children remain hidden. Given the need for openness in this case, it is also important for Gov. Tom Corbett to provide a more thorough explanaEDITORIAL BOARD

tion of his actions as attorney general in investigating sexualabuse allegations against Sandusky. The Harrisburg PatriotNews reported that local prosecutors referred Sandusky’s case to Corbett’s office in March 2009, but it didn’t begin directly investigating until fall 2010. Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley said Tuesday that the delay was due to the time it took to identify victims and make a case. He said protecting children was a priority for Corbett. Were it not for loopholes in the Sunshine Law, there would be no grounds for Penn State to withhold campus police reports, emails and other records concerning Sandusky. Penn State received $272 million in state funds this year. That kind of cash from taxpayers should give them the right to see Penn State’s paperwork. The Philadelphia Inquirer

MALLARD FILLMORE

n Oct. 30, I read a letter to the editor in The Times Leader in which a career politician made false statements seemingly to smear opponents vying for a change in Plymouth’s borough council. The three candidates referred to were working to help people misplaced by the recent flood, without looking for any gratuity or praise for their efforts. They weren’t sitting around in the borough building. The career politician was seen riding around the town with federal and state representatives who were assessing the damage. Granted, it was important to the flood victims to have the damage assessed in order to get federal funding. But it was unfair and insulting for the career politician to belittle the candidates who, in truth, were performing a most immediate service to those afflicted. An apology should be in order. The political mudslinging should be curtailed, because action speaks louder than words. Isn’t it time for our supposedly intelligent candidates running for office to be more understanding and show some civility toward their opponents before and after an election? Elaine Givens Plymouth

hunting on Sundays. The pro-expansion forces claim all we need do is post our land. Posters are not protection from trespassers, though the signs do help in prosecuting violators. Posters do nothing to stop noise from gunshots, haphazard bullets and arrows, wandering hunting dogs, “lost” hunters and, worst of all, wounded and dying animals (which the landowner often has to dispose of while the hunter responsible seeks another kill), among other violations. Trespassing by hunters has become so extensive that the Pennsylvania Game Commission has had to add it as an enforceable game violation. The issue of whether hunting on Sundays should be expanded should not rest solely on the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau. No, every single rural and suburban landowner who values his or her privacy and other rights needs to contact their state representative immediately and to tell that official to vote no on any expansion of hunting on Sunday.

Customers get soaked on water rate increase

O

n Nov. 11, The Times Leader reported that the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission had approved large water rate increases for both residential and commercial customers of the Pennsylvania American Water Co. Residential rates increased 6.3 percent, and commercial rates went up a staggering 17.3 percent. The company’s request was actually much higher, stating it needs tens of millions of dollars in additional revenue for capital improvements. Everyone understands that our area’s aging water pipes, many a century old, require replacement, and we all want to benefit from the most recent water-cleaning technology by upgrading drinkingwater treatment plants. But the timing of this rate increase could not have been worse. Residents will face higher water bills just as the expensive winter heating system begins, and many area residents already are having a tough time paying their heating bills. This is also a significant operating cost increase for businesses – just as we all have asked businesses to refocus on creating more jobs to reinvigorate our economy. Well, how are businesses

DOONESBURY

going to hire more people when they abruptly have to pay 17.3 percent more for their water? Yes, the $36 million in new water rate revenue, if it is all actually spent on water supply infrastructure, will itself provide some construction work to benefit the economy, but the Marcellus Shale natural gas play also is already creating much new pipeline construction work. The rate increases might be needed but, considering the economy, they should have begun after this winter heating season. And this also serves as an important reminder to all residents and businesses: If you care about this issue, when you see the notices that the PUC is holding hearings on rate increases, you need to attend the meeting and or send in your comments. The article indicated only about a dozen people out of more than 140,000 affected customers attended a hearing on this topic held in late July in Wilkes-Barre. Maybe if more people and businesses had expressed concern, this increase could have been better timed or further reduced. David Allen Hines Kingston

Tax reform suggestion contains magic numbers

I

like the idea of David Faust in his letter to the editor “Replace state sales tax with personal income tax” (Nov. 14). If I make $50,000 a year, I pay only $300 per year in taxes; $25,000/year, pay $150 in taxes. Either this is a typo or his math is very imaginative. Joe Obie Nanticoke

Area ambulance policy confusing to 911 caller

I

recently called 911 so that an ambulance would take a woman who had fallen to the hospital. I told them she had fallen but there were no life-threatening problems. After a short time, an ambulance from Exeter arrived. They said the Swoyersville ambulance was on another call. After a short stay in the hospital, the patient was transported to John Heinz for rehab. Trans-Med Ambulance transported the patient and billed her approximately $45. I went to the Swoyersville volunteer ambulance building and inquired as to why its service did not transport the patient free of charge. The reply was something to the effect that it did not transport this type patient. My question is why the ambulance service solicits donations from people, telling them that if they don’t donate the $25 or $35 a year, they cannot receive free service. Why donate if it is going to refer patients to Trans-Med, located in Forty Fort? Mario Zucca Swoyersville

PSU campus police in spotlight Latest developments in scandal put university cops front and center of prominent unanswered questions. By JUSTIN POPE AP Education Writer

At Penn State, as at many colleges, campus police occupy an unusual and muchmisunderstood spot on the law enforcement spectrum — and when scandal breaks, that often leads to questions about divided loyalties. The latest developments in the sex abuse case there have put university’s police front and center of some of the most prominent unanswered questions. Did Penn State officers investigate allegations former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused on campus thoroughly and professionally, only to have their findings quashed by prosecutors and imageconscious university administrators who preferred to handle things in-house? Or were the police themselves part of the cover-up? The grand jury report alleging sexual abuse by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and perjury and failure to report by two university administrators — including the vice president who oversaw the campus police — suggests it was others who dropped the ball. But it also leav-

es many questions unanswered. Campus police conducted a “thorough” investigation of one victim’s allegations in 1998 along with local police and state investigators, the report says, only to have the district attorney decline to prosecute. And the report says university police were never notified by anyone at the university of assistant coach Mike McQueary’s report he’d seen Sandusky rape a boy in a campus shower. While former vice president of finance Gary Schultz oversaw the police department, he is charged with breaking the law by failing to report the accusation to actual university police officers or other authorities. But in an email obtained earlier this week by The Associated Press, McQueary insists he did “have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police.” That contradicts the grand jury report, however, and on Wednesday both police departments reiterated they had no record of any report by McQueary. The grand jury report also leaves ambiguity about the tone and substance of the investigation campus police did conduct in1998. For instance, when campus police Detective Ronald Schreffler and a state child welfare investigator interviewed Sandusky, the report says Sandusky admitted showering with the victim and “that it was wrong. Detective Schreffler

Most large universities, at least, have transformed their police forces into thoroughly professionalized forces that are very often better staffed, trained, equipped and even armed than their budget-strapped local counterparts. advised Sandusky not to shower with any child again and he said that he would not.” For decades, campus police had reputations as Keystone Kops who couldn’t hack it as “real” police and who spent most of their energy breaking up fights and busting keg parties, turning more serious matters over to local government authorities. But in the last 20 years — and especially since the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings — things have changed so much that sometimes the reverse is now true. Most large universities, at least, have transformed their police forces into thoroughly professionalized forces that are very often better staffed, trained, equipped and even armed than their budget-strapped local counterparts. Officers often are former local police who want better pay and more support. In small jurisdictions with large universities, local authorities often turn to university police for help. Penn State has 46 full-time armed officers, compared to 65

in surrounding State College. And because local police have broader responsibilities, campus police often have far more time and resources to conduct thorough investigations. Another misconception: Campus police aren’t real police. In many jurisdictions, including at Penn State, they’re functionally no different than local officers — sworn to enforce the law, and authorized to conduct investigations and refer matters to local prosecutors. The grand jury report makes clear Penn State officials could have met their obligation to report child sex abuse allegations simply by notifying campus police officers. But there are important differences. Campus police face additional regulations under the federal Clery Act, which requires them to publicly report campus crimes and warn students when they happen. The Department of Education is now investigating Penn State for possible Clery Act violations. Universities also face an array of civil requirements under Title IX governing how they must conduct sexual assault investigations, which could also come into play at Penn State. Another difference particular to Penn State: because of a state law and its unusual status as a “state related” but not fully public institution, university police records are not open to the public, as municipal police reports would be.

PSU football had ties to charity after red flags By SOPHIA PEARSON, MARK NIQUETTE and EBEN NOVY-WILLIAMS Bloomberg News

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State football coaches and past players attended events sponsored by the foundation for needy children started by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky for years after head coach Joe Paterno was told of child-abuse allegations against Sandusky, according to the charity’s newsletters and a grand jury report. Then-current Penn State players also participated in the Second Mile charity’s Nittany Lion Tips program, in which trading cards with inspirational sayings were given to school children, and Paterno was listed as an honorary member of the Second Mile

istrative leave, wrote in an email to friends and given to The Associated Press that he had “discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police” about what he saw. In the email, McQueary did not specify whether he spoke to campus or State College police. State College borough police Chief Tom King said McQueary didn’t make a report to his department. Penn State has said campus police did not have any record of a report filed in 2002 by McQueary. University police spokeswoman Annemarie Mountz said additional searching has been fruitless. She noted that the 23-page grand jury report was the state attorney general’s summary of testimony, so it’s unclear what McQueary’s full testimony was. McQueary and a law firm representing him have not returned phone calls. On Thursday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that

board of directors as recently as 2010 — eight years after the grand-jury report said he was told about improper activity involving Sandusky, the newsletters and past versions of Second Mile’s website show. The revelations come as Second Mile board members resigned, donors including Bank of America and The Hershey Co. suspended financial support, and the future of the charity is in doubt after Sandusky was

charged Nov. 5 with 40 criminal counts tied to alleged sexual molestation of eight boys from 1994 to 2009. Paterno and Penn State President Graham B. Spanier were fired Nov. 9, and Jack Raykovitz, Second Mile president and chief executive, resigned this week. Lisa Powers, director of public information at Penn State, didn’t respond to email and telephone requests for comment on why the university kept ties with the char-

ity. In 2002, a graduate assistant saw Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in the Penn State locker room showers and reported the incident to Paterno, according to the grand jury report. Paterno has said he wasn’t aware of specific details of the attack and referred the matter to university officials because Sandusky was no longer a member of the coaching staff. In the years that followed, Second Mile’s annual fundraisers and events drew support from the university’s football program with coaches and former players in attendance. A March 2007 event called "A Salute to Linebacker U" featured Sandusky along with former Penn State players Lance Mehl, John Skorupan, Chet Parlavecchio, Paul Posluszny and Greg

Buttle, who all went on to play professionally in the NFL. Paterno had ties to the charity dating back to at least1997, when the Second Mile held an event honoring the coach at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center, according to a March 20, 1997, article in the files of the Lancaster New Era newspaper."It should be a tribute to Jerry Sandusky and the volunteers in The Second Mile," Paterno said at the event, according to the newspaper article. "These are special people, it’s a special project and I just feel privileged to be a part of it tonight." Two years later, according to the grand jury report, Paterno told Sandusky he wouldn’t get the top job in Penn State’s football program.

Pennsylvania lawmakers are could not immediately confirm planning a special commission whether the resignation was acto examine the legal issues cepted or whether Spanier was raised by the scandal, which has let go regardless.

Spanier was set to quit, PSU says The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State said former president Graham Spanier offered to resign last week to university trustees in the wake of the child sex abuse case that has enveloped the school. The board announced after a meeting Nov. 9 that it Spanier decided Spanier was “no longer president.” Spanier said in a statement the same night “there is wisdom in a transition in leadership so that there are no distractions in allowing the university to move forward.” Neither the board, nor Spanier, had specified then if he resigned. School spokeswoman Lisa Powers said in an email Thursday that Spanier offered his resignation in the best interests of Penn State. School officials could not immediately confirm whether the resignation was accepted or whether Spanier was let go regardless. Spanier left the same night the board fired Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno in a tumultuous week that began with authorities charging former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky with abusing eight boys over a 15-year span. The board named provost Rod Erickson to replace Spanier on an interim basis initially. Then at another Nov. 11 board meeting, Erickson’s “interim” tag was removed, but school officials said a search would still occur at an undetermined time in the future. Since last week, “the board has indicated ... that it has put its full support behind Erickson as the 17th president and we would not begin the search process,” Powers said. Education and the Workforce Committee to study potential changes to federal laws that protect children and students. Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, appeared with him on NBC’s “Rock Center” on Monday night and cast doubt on the evidence in the case. Sandusky, 67, appeared on the show by phone and said he had showered with boys but never molested them. It remains unclear how many accusers have surfaced more than a week after state police and the attorney general’s office said at a news conference they were seeking additional potential victims and witnesses. State police spokeswoman Maria Finn said investigators have told her that published accounts reporting how many people have come forward are inaccurate and they are not disclosing their internal figures.

Orange assistant being investigated for molestation The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Just two weeks after Penn State was rocked by a child sexabuse scandal, ESPN reported Thursday that police were investigating an assistant basketball coach at Syracuse University on allegations of child molestation. Shortly afterward, Syracuse placed longtime assistant coach Bernie Fine on administrative leave “in light of the new allegations and the Syracuse City Police investigation,” the school said. “We are in the very early stages of an

investigation,” Sgt. Tom Connellan told The Post-Standard in Syracuse. Connellan told the newspaper that police received information on the case Thursday, Fine but would not say who provided the information. ESPN reported that Fine is accused of molesting a former Syracuse ball boy, who is now 39. The alleged victim told

ESPN the abuse occurred at Fine’s home, at Syracuse basketball facilities and on team road trips, including the 1987 Final Four. ESPN said it first investigated the accusations in 2003, but decided not to run the story because there was no independent evidence to corroborate the allegations. Recently, a second man contacted ESPN, alleging that Fine also molested him. That person said he decided to come forward after seeing the Penn State coverage.

The Post-Standard reported it also investigated the accuser’s allegations in 2003, but decided against publishing the story because no one else came forward to confirm the accuser’s account. Fine is in his 35th season as an assistant to coach Jim Boeheim. Phone calls by The Associated Press to the police were not immediately returned. After a reporter knocked on the doors of the homes of Fine and Boeheim, he was told neither was home.

The accusations arrived on the heels of the Penn State case in which longtime former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is accused of sexually abused eight boys over 15 years. The case cost Joe Paterno his job, and former school administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz are charged with not properly alerting authorities to suspected abuse and perjury. Syracuse senior vice president for public affairs Kevin Quinn said the school would cooperate with the police investigation.

Warriors, GAR square off for 2A crown

By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

Limit mistakes. Hang onto the football. Avoid costly penalties. Sounds like the credo for any high school football game. But in the District 2 Class 2A championship game at 7 p.m. today at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium, the team that doesn’t steer clear of the aforementioned will likely be packing away the equipment. The past two times Wyoming Area (7-3) and defending district champ GAR (10-1) have played, all or a combination of the three have been vital to the outcome. And both times, Wyoming Area came up short against GAR. Back on Oct. 22, GAR defeated the Warriors 37-30. Wyoming Area had a 15-yard personal foul penalties on two Grenadier scoring drives, including one that result-

ed in a first down on what would have been a fourth-and-3. The Warriors also fumbled away the ball at the GAR 36- and 7-yard lines in their initial possessions of the third quarter. Last year, a turnover deep in GAR territory late in the second quarter reversed the momentum and led to a 23-13 GAR

victory. “When we saw it live on the field and then on film, it wasn’t because of carelessness with the ball,” Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer said of the Oct. 22 game. “It was one of those things where they were trying to grind out those extra yards. It’s tough to come down on them or anybody for that.” The Warriors didn’t let that loss or a regular-season finale 24-21 setback to rival Pittston Area bother them in the D2-2A semifinals. They rallied twice to take the lead in the fourth quarter, with Nick O’Brien’s 6-yard run with 9:14 being the game-winner in the 35-28 victory. “I think we rebounded pretty well,” Spencer said. O’Brien accounted for 354 of Wyoming Area’s 399 total yards from scrimmage. He starts at quarterback, but will be

moved all around the field, playing tailback in an I-formation or lining up wide or in the slot. So will GAR’s Darrell Crawford, who does his most damage at quarterback but will shift all over the field. Crawford is also the Wyoming Valley Conference’s most prolific returner. He has returned four punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns. Both teams, though, go beyond their multi-threat signal-callers. GAR running backs Lucas Benton and Dwayne Wright and receiver Shaliek Powell have made big plays throughout the season. “Defensively, I’m sure they’ll mixed things up and try to confuse our kids,” GAR coach Paul Wiedlich Jr. said. “We’re preparing for anything they throw at us.” See QUEST, Page 3B

George Howanitz defeated Dallas as Valley View’s quarterback. Now he gets a chance to do the same as Valley View’s coach. Howanitz and his highly-touted Cougars play at Dallas at 1 p.m. Saturday to decide the District 2 Class 3A championship. Both teams bring 10-1 records into a game that pits what are considered the best teams in the two conferences that encompass District 2. Howanitz led Valley View to a 34-13 victory over Dallas in the Eastern Conference Class 2A title game in 1992. He and the Cougars went on to win the state championship.

In the midst of one of the top seasons by a defensive lineman in the country, Penn State’s Devon Still was recognized Thursday as a finalist for the Nagurski Award for the nation’s best defensive player. Still is one of five finalists for the honor along with fellow Big Ten lineman Whitney Mercilus of Illinois, Alabama safety Mark Barron, LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne and Boston College Still linebacker Luke Kuechly. UP With 15 solo NEXT tackles for loss, Penn State Still ranks first at in the Big Ten. Ohio State His 16.5 total 3:30 p.m tackles for loss Saturday are sixth-best in ABC the country. On the season, Still also has 53 tackles (28 solo), 4.0 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. “Devon’s played great football,” Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley said. “The thing that’s probably overlooked is the responsibility that he’s taken on this football team with his leadership. I’ve leaned on him. “He’s done an excellent job just being a good, solid teammate to everybody. He’s spent an awful lot of time in that locker room, hanging around the guys trying to express what he thinks, as a team, we need to do to get to the next level.” The Nagurski Award winner will be announced at a ceremony in Charlotte on Dec. 12.

Likewise, Wyoming Area has a deep skill-player pool that will add a couple pieces that were missing last week – tight end Trent Grove and receiver/running back Ahmad Bouie. Grove missed the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit a week earlier versus Pittston Area. Bouie sat out the Mid Valley contest because of a minor knee injury. Both are starters on defense at end and corner, respectively. Wyoming Area tried to exploit GAR’s perceived weakness back on Oct. 22, pounding big backs Jeff Skursky and Corey Popovich between the tackles. Since then, Wiedlich Jr. has been pleased how the run defense has performed. “Our run defense has improved tremendously since the last time we played Wyoming Area,� Wiedlich Jr. said. “Going into Saturday, (Lakeland) had 146 total yards. That’s going against a good Lakeland team that pounded the ball at us Week 3. Our kids took that personally about getting better up front.� WYOMING AREA (7-3) Gr. Sr. So.

AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER

The GAR football team practices inside the 109th Field Artillery Armory for tonight’s game against Wyoming Area.

SHOWDOWN Continued from Page 1B

Channel 16 helicopter flew in to try to dry the field off.� There won’t be any helicopters involved, but expect similar slick conditions on Dallas’ grass field after this week’s rain. And Howanitz expects a Dallas team very akin to that 1992 squad, which was also coached by Ted Jackson. “They had a very good team, a very good quarterback and some very good skill kids,� Howanitz said. “Their defense was very good at the time. They were pretty similar to where they are today.� Jackson hasn’t deviated much from a winning formula that has produced only one losing record in his 27 seasons at the helm. Dallas has always been known for a stingy defense and an offense that is fundamentally sound and adapts to the given talent. This year, Dallas has diversified more on offense, with firstyear starting quarterback Ryan Zapoticky exceeding expectations. Zapoticky led to the entire Wyoming Valley Conference in passing yards (1,378), TD passes (19) and completion percentage (58.5) during the regular season. It helps to have two huge targets in 6-foot-3 Shane Dunn and 6-4 Jason Simonovich as well as the return of multi-purpose threat Paul Brace, who missed five games with a foot injury. Running back Jim Roccograndi has also exceeded expectations, rushing for 1,177 yards and 16 TDs during the regular season. Fullback Garrett Artsma has also developed into a running threat recently. “For our seniors, that’s 30 wins,� Jackson said after a 39-6 dismantling of Scranton Prep in the semifinals. “That’s a helluva lot of football games to win. It’s just a tribute to the kind of kids they are and their work ethic.� While Dallas was in the D2-3A playoffs the past two years, Valley View was growing into the team it is. The Cougars finished 4-6 in 2009, losing two games by one point, and improved to 7-5 last season in winning the Eastern Conference 3A title. “We kind of circled this team as one where we thought we had a good crop of athletes,� Howanitz said. “There are a lot seniors who’ve been playing for three years. We knew a couple years ago we would take our lumps when they played as sophomores.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Dodgers’ Kershaw wins NL Cy Young Award By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers won the NL Cy Young Award in a runaway Thursday. Kershaw received 27 of 32 firstplace votes, five seconds and two thirds for 207 points in voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. “I always dreamed about playing in the big leagues. I never

dreamed about doing anything special in the big leagues. I don’t think any kid ever does,” Kershaw said. “The people Kershaw I’m now associated with, just by having this award, is something that I never thought would ever happen.” Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay,

last year’s winner, was second with four first-place votes, 21 seconds and seven thirds for 133 points. Phillies teammate Cliff Lee was third with 90 points, followed by Arizona’s Ian Kennedy with 76 points. “Whenever you have a Cy Young next to your name, there’s going to be expectations that go along with it,” Kershaw said. “Whenever I look at a pitcher and I see that he’s won a Cy Young

Award, I think, you know, this guy, he better be good. And that’s what I hope to be. I hope people have that expectation for me.” With a big curveball that might be the best in baseball, Kershaw won the NL’s pitching triple crown. Pitching on a team that went 82-79, he led the league with a 2.28 ERA and 248 strikeouts and with a 21-5 record tied Kennedy for most wins. The 23-year-old left-hander,

Read lifts Philadephia The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Matt Read knocked in a rebound with 18.6 seconds left to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night. Read’s sixth goal of the season made a winner out of goalie Ilya Bryzgalov in his first game against the Coyotes. Bryzgalov spent four years with Phoenix and blossomed into one of the NHL’s top goalies. Phoenix sent Bryzgalov’s negotiating rights to the Flyers and he signed a nine year, $51 million deal. James van Riemsdyk scored for the Flyers. Mikkel Boedker had the lone goal for the Coyotes. Lightning 4, Penguins 1 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Dwayne Roloson made 33 saves, Vincent Lecavalier had two goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Pittsburgh Penguins. Brett Connolly and Steve Downie also scored for the Lightning, who have won six consecutive home games. Pittsburgh got a thirdperiod goal from Tyler Kennedy. Islanders 4, Canadiens 3 UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Rick DiPietro made 24 saves in relief of injured starter Evgeni Nabokov, and Matt Moulson scored a key goal in the New York Islanders’ win over the Montreal Canadiens. P.A. Parenteau, Jay Pandolfo, and Mark Streit also scored for the Islanders, who had lost four straight (0-3-1). New York, which scored all of its goals in the second period, held on after taking a 3-0 lead.

Rich Peverley and David Krejci scored to put Boston ahead 2-1 in the shootout, and Rask ended it by stoning Vermette. Wild 1, Colorado 0 ST. PAUL, Minn. — Niklas Backstrom stopped 27 shots for his second shutout of the season, and Devin Setoguchi scored the game’s only goal with 2:31 left to give the Minnesota Wild a win over the Colorado Avalanche. Backstrom earned his 24th NHL shutout and the Wild’s third this season in 19 games. It was his first home blanking since Feb. 1, 2011, against Los Angeles. Dany Heatley took the initial shot that led to Setoguchi’s goal. The puck deflected off Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson right to Setoguchi, who scored his sixth of the season and second in two games. .

Woods suffers historic loss in Presidents Cup play The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia — The handshake between Tiger Woods and ex-caddie Steve Williams was routine. The loss by Woods and Steve Stricker turned out to be the real drama in the Presidents Cup. Adam Scott and K.J. Choi were relentless Thursday at Royal Mel-

bourne in dishing out the worst loss for Woods in any format of match play. The International tandem won 7 and 6, tying the record for biggest margin of victory in Presidents Cup history. Woods and Stricker, undefeated two years ago, turned out to be the only weak link for the Americans.

erage was the second-lowest in the major leagues among qualified pitchers, trailing only Detroit’s Justin Verlander (.192), the unanimous AL Cy Young winner. Kershaw was especially effective at Dodger Stadium, where he went 12-1 with the lowest home ERA in the big leagues at 1.69. Los Angeles has a chance to sweep the two major NL awards. Matt Kemp is a favorite to win the MVP, which is announced Tuesday.

They won three matches handily, and rallied to halve two other matches to build a 4-2 lead after the opening session. Woods and Stricker, winners of their first six matches together, have lost their last two — including 6 and 5 last year in the Ryder Cup to Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. What looked particularly

bad about this one is the American tandem didn’t win a hole and was the only team that failed to make a single birdie. The only other match that went 12 holes since the Presidents Cup began in 1994 was when David Frost beat Kenny Perry by the same score in singles in 1996.

As the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins begin their three-game road trip at 7 p.m. today in Portland, they hope to chip away at a record. The Penguins are a perfect 8-00-0 on the road this year. Going back to last season, they won the last four road games of the year, so the Penguins have a 12-game winning streak intact away from home. The AHL record for consecutive road wins in the regular season is 15 – a mark the Penguins can tie with three wins this weekend. But head coach John Hynes isn’t looking that far ahead. “We have to start with winning the first one,” he said. “I don’t want to go above that because when you do it gets to be about that as opposed to about playing. We can’t look past anyone. We have to win Friday night’s game.” That begins with Portland, a team that the Penguins didn’t face last season and have only played six times in the last five years. This season the Pirates are 6-7-0-1, sitting in fifth place in the

Atlantic Division with 13 points. But they have won their last two games – both at home – while outscoring their opponents 8-4. Despite the Penguins’ success on the road, Hynes said his team isn’t taking the Pirates lightly. “We don’t know Portland,” he said, adding the team isn’t counting on confidence to pull them through. “It’s about making sure we’re ready to play mentally. Being prepared and motivated to play – that’s the biggest thing for me.” After Friday’s game in Portland, the Penguins travel to Manchester to take on the Monarchs on Saturday and then it’s off to Worcester on Sunday. Like Portland, the Penguins didn’t face Manchester last season but they did beat the Monarchs 4-1on the road earlier this season. After a stretch of six games against East Division rivals, Hynes said his team is looking forward to seeing some new faces from the Atlantic Division. “Get a fresh start on an Eastern swing which we haven’t been on in a while,” Hynes said. “The change in venues and change in opponents will be refreshing.”

MAC FOOTBALL

MAC captures challenge against PAC opponents By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

Earlier this season, the MAC and the PAC (Presidents’ Athletic Conference) squared off for the second MAC-PAC Challenge. Despite one game remaining on the schedule – Saturday’s showdown between King’s and Bethany – the MAC won the challenge for the second straight season with five wins to the PAC’s one. When the Monarchs travel to West Virginia for the game, it won’t be the only contest this week between the two conferences as a few postseason games are on the slate. Waynesburg (5-4), which was slated to play Wilkes in Week 2 before the September flooding wiped out the tilt, will travel to Widener Saturday for the ECAC South Atlantic Bowl. Widener (8-2) defeated Thiel 44-14 during the challenge. Also on the ECAC calendar is the Southwest Bowl, which will pit St. Vincent (6-4) – the lone PAC team to win in the MAC-PAC Challenge – against Lebanon Valley. The Flying Dutchmen (7-3) walloped Westminster 41-3 in September. “The MAC is an outstanding conference and the Presidents’ Conference is real tough,” King’s coach Jeff Knarr said. “It shows that Pennsylvania plays great football when two conferences get to square off for another round of MAC-PAC Challenge.” MAC member Albright (6-4) will play in the ECAC Southeast Bowl against SUNY Cortland. And MAC champion Delaware Valley (10-0) makes its third straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament when it takes on Norwich (7-3). Lycoming, which finished its season 8-2 overall, will not play in the postseason despite winning the most games since 2003.

two years and the agreement concluded in 2011. But the MAC has another confrontation coming up for 2012 and 2013 when it will play teams from the NJAC (New Jersey Athletic Conference). The matchups are already set on a geographical basis. The matchups with the 2011 records are Brockport State (3-7) at Lycoming (8-2), Wilkes (4-5) at Morrisville State (1-9), King’s (1-8) at William Paterson (4-6), Lebanon Valley (7-3) at Montclair State (8-2), Delaware Valley (10-0) at Rowan (5-5), Albright (6-4) at Kean (9-1) and Western Connecticut (0-10) at Widener (8-2). Stevenson, a 2011 newcomer to the MAC, and Misericordia, which begins play in 2012, were left off the slate because the schedule was made last year at this time and the NJAC lost a member.

COUNTING DOWN The official time until Misericordia opens its football season is 287 days. That’s when the Cougars will travel to Gettysburg for the first gridiron game in school history. There is 294 days until the team’s first MAC game when it plays at Lebanon Valley. And 303 days remain until the Cougars first home game as they will entertain Widener. Misericordia plays King’s in Week 4 and Wilkes Week 6; both games are on the road.

LOCALS EARN HONORS Northwest grad Ray Bierbach earned MAC first-team honors playing safety for Lycoming. The senior, who was a preseason AllAmerican, led the league with five interceptions for the second straight season. His teammate with the Warriors, Roger Jayne, a LakeLehman grad, earned second-team honors. The junior defensive lineANOTHER CHALLENGE man posted 28 tackles and 2.5 The MAC-PAC Challenge lasted sacks.

Bradley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a friend of mine. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recruited against Luke. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on the road together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he was laughing. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;At least I got my start in May.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? A little gallows humor for two guys who many expect will be cast aside after this season. Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ties to Penn State football dating back to 1975 will likely be held against him as the sexual abuse scandal involving his former colleague Jerry Sandusky continues.

The two men barely had to verbalize it. Few could fully know the challenges faced by Tom Bradley and Luke Fickell to reach this point, but the coaches understood each other perfectly.

Bradley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kind of chuckled. He knew what I meant because he had the same thing.â&#x20AC;? The details are much different. But Bradley at Penn State and Fickell at Ohio State were assistants who inherited their jobs when famed head coaches were brought down by scandal.

Rose Bowl has no qualms about inviting Penn State By ERIC OLSON AP Sports Writer

The chief administrative officer of the Rose Bowl says if Penn State wins the Big Ten title, the Nittany Lions will be free to play in the top-tier postseason game as far as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned. Kevin Ash said Thursday that the Rose Bowl would let the Big Ten decide if there is a reason its champion shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the Pac 12 winner in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever the champions are,â&#x20AC;?

Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman said his conference has taken no position on whether Penn State should accept a bowl bid and that the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selection procedure would not be altered because of the scandal. Capital One Bowl chief executive Steve Hogan, whose bowl is No. 2 in the Big Ten selection order, said his committee would base its matchup on on-the-field performance and that it would

be unfair to penalize players who had nothing to do with the scandal. Sandusky, who is accused of molesting eight boys over 15 years and says he is innocent, retired from Penn State in 1999. Spokesmen for the Outback and Insight bowls, Nos. 3 and 4 in the Big Ten order, declined to comment on how Penn State would be viewed by their selection committees. The Gator (No. 5), Meineke Car Care (No. 6) and Little Caesars Pizza (No. 8) bowls didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return messages seeking comment.

ing potential NCAA violations to his superiors. With the Buckeyes stung by suspensions and the loss of Tressel, Ohio State is just 6-4 on the season as discussions are rampant about a new coach. Though Fickell does not have the â&#x20AC;&#x153;interim coachâ&#x20AC;? tag affixed to Bradley, he understands the situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to make excuses with a whole lot of things in whatever situation youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealt,â&#x20AC;? Fickell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like we said, life isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fair. There are some similarities (between us), but â&#x20AC;Ś like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said from the get-go, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be about me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since I started this and took over, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a stamp that I was going to put on (the program), or be about what I think is important. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure coach Bradley is the same way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to sit there in the next four weeks or three weeks and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, this is my chance. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to put a stamp on it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a team guy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around it.

Sophomore tailback Silas Redd, who led the nation in rushing yards during October, spent much of the second half on the sideline after suffering a sprained SC joint (sternum/clavicle). Redd was held out of contact this week, but Bradley said Thursday that he will play against Ohio State this weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silas didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get hit all week,â&#x20AC;?

week beforehand, complete with riots following Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a very easy conversation,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. Heading into last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, Nebraska officials expressed concern about safety coming into Beaver Stadium given the events of the past week. The game went on without incident, with players on both teams coming together at midfield beforehand for a moment of prayer. Now headed on the road, Bradley said he has no concerns over safety for Penn State players or fans in Columbus after speaking with Fickell. Both coaches said they would likely have some of pregame show of support. Obviously Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; players selling memorabilia in exchange for things such as free tattoos â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pales in comparison to what Penn State as a university is facing. But Fickell said he believes Penn State players can persevere through the tough times, much as his team has. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can just speak from the experience of our young guys and all the turmoil that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had,â&#x20AC;? Fickell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not comparing and contrasting. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably what I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do, but I think young people are very resilient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just saying they do a good job of continuing to move on, and I know ours have done that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy. The more that people talk about it, it gets brought back up. But they have a tendency to be able to move on and focus and at

has categorically denied that discussions have been held to remove the Joe Paterno statue that stands at Beaver Stadium and Bradley said Thursday he has not been in touch with NFL teams about his future. The Paterno statue has been the subject of debate in the past week as other organizations have distanced themselves from the former coach. This comes in light of his admission that he wished he had done more to bring allegations of sexual abuse by former assistant Jerry Sandusky to light. On Monday the Big Ten announced that Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name would be removed from the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new championship trophy. Responding to a CBS Sports report citing students and professors, multiple Penn State spokesmen said this week that there have been no talks at all about the Paterno statue. As for Bradley, though his future is very much uncertain at this point, he said he had not reached out to the NFL looking for a landing spot after the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of those guys I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talked to for 10 years,â&#x20AC;?

Davie takes over at lowly New Mexico The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Loss after loss, season after season, New Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football team has been struggling. Now, the Lobos are looking to Bob Davie to turn the tide. It promises to be a big challenge for Davie, the former Notre Dame coach who has been away from the sidelines for the past decade. Welcomed by a crowd of cheerleaders and fans, Davie was introduced Thursday as New Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31st head coach. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replacing Mike Locksley, who was fired mid-season after a nearly three-year tenure that was mostly marked by losses and off-field problems.

Davie, who most recently has been an ESPN college football analyst, is inheriting a program that has lost 35 of its last 38 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the biggest concern coming in is that I know losing is hard on everyone. Losing brings out the worst in everyone,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the first thing is to stabilize this program, stabilize these players, the fan base, the people who care about Lobo football.â&#x20AC;? The second thing is to start chipping away and changing the culture, he said. Davieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan involves what he calls the three Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; out-work, out-discipline and out-hit. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy for Davie or

his players. The program has been in a tailspin. The trouble culminated in the firing of Locksley on Sept. 26, a day after the Lobos lost 4845 in overtime to Sam Houston State before an announced crowd of 16,313 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the smallest home crowd in nearly two decades. Locksley had been surrounded by controversy almost as soon as he became head coach, facing a sexual harassment suit, a suspension after he punched another coach, and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the day before he was fired â&#x20AC;&#x201D; criticism after police arrested his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in an SUV registered to Locksleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife.

CLASS 3A EASTERN CONFERENCE

Which District 2 Class 3A football team has the longest current winning streak? The answer isn’t Dallas or Valley View, a pair of 10-1 teams that will play for the D2-3A title Saturday afternoon. “Dallas? This has to be a trick question,” Berwick coach Gary Campbell said. “It’s got to be us. That’s cool, that’s neat. But I would have guessed Dallas or Valley View because I don’t remember when they lost.” Dallas has won four in a row; Valley View three. And Berwick? How about seven consecutive victories. The Dawgs (8-3) bring that winning streak into their season finale today as they host Southern Lehigh (7-4) at 7 p.m. in the Eastern Conference Class 3A championship game. Only D2-2A finalist GAR with eight consecutive wins has a longer streak in District 2. Scranton, which is playing in the D2/4-11 Class 4A subregional, has won seven straight. “It’s been excellent,” Campbell said. “You can see what they did and how they came together and how the kids believe in what they’re doing. They have a confidence to them and camaraderie. “I hate to say it, but when you’re not doing well it shows all your flaws.” Berwick didn’t play well to start the season, losing three of its first four against teams that are a combined 27-6. The Dawgs then went on a sprint aimed at their ultimate goal – a spot in the D2-3A playoffs. The problem was Scranton Prep went on a similar run and ended up edging Berwick for the last berth by 60 state points. While disappointed in the outcome, Berwick knew it did its part

Southern Lehigh (7-4) at Berwick (8-3) 7 p.m. today Admission: $5 adults and $2 students in advance; $5 at the gate. Radio: WHLM-FM, 103.5 Last Meeting: never played About Berwick: The Dawgs are in the title game for the second consecutive year. They lost 35-21 to Valley View in 2010. Their last Eastern Conference title came in 1993 when they defeated Shamokin 21-7. Berwick will return 10 starters on defense and six on offense in 2012. About Southern Lehigh: The Spartans have posted four consecutive winning seasons under six-year coach John Toman. They played in the District 11 Class 3A championship game last season, losing 41-0 to Allentown Central Catholic. Like Berwick, Southern Lehigh will return a large group of starters next season.

to make districts. It just couldn’t control Prep’s fortunes. “It’s disheartening because it was our goal and we were points away,” said Campbell, whose team finished the regular season 7-3 like Prep. “But we had the discussion with the kids. If Prep backdoored it in or somehow, someway did something to get in that was kind of eh, we would have felt bad. “But Prep went out and beat Valley View, beat DelVal and beat West Scranton. So they earned it, too, unfortunate for us.” Instead, Berwick earned a rematch with Coughlin in the E.C. semifinals, winning 29-28 as running back Jeremy Freeman and quarterback Jared Pierce scored two TDs each. Southern Lehigh met with a similar fate. The Spartans fin-

ished the regular season with the same record as East Stroudsburg North and Pottsville and a better record than Allentown Central Catholic. But while those three teams qualified for the District 11 tournament, Southern Lehigh was bumped to the Eastern Conference. Southern Lehigh will present a different dilemma for Berwick’s offense. The Spartans run a spread/Wing-T combination that is hard to defend. Quarterback Ty Edmond, a three-year starter, leads a team – like Berwick – that will have plenty of talent returning in 2012.

The Wyoming Valley Conference golf coaches announced its All-Star team for the 2011 season with Pittston Area standout Brandon Matthews leading the way as league Most Valuable Player.

Rasmussen cleared of doping charges COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Track cycling world champion Alex Rasmussen was cleared of charges connected to missed doping tests by the Denmark Sports Federation doping committee on Thursday. If the ruling stands, Rasmussen can compete next season for his new team, Garmin-Cervelo, and has a chance to participate in the 2012 London Olympics. Rasmussen was suspend-

Lost

ed by his national cycling body and fired by his team HTC-Highroad in September, after missing three doping tests in 18 months. He received two warnings from Denmark’s antidoping agency and one from the International Cycling Union. The sports federation said it cleared Rasmussen because the UCI didn’t inform him about his third whereabouts violation until 10 weeks after it happened.

Initial jobless claims fall to seven-month low

B R I E F

New Jersey casinos falter

Atlantic City’s casinos saw their gross operating profits fall by more than 13 percent in the third quarter of this year, hurt by a three-day closure due to Hurricane Irene. The 11 casinos collectively earned operating profits of $182.1 million. That’s down from the $209.8 million they earned in the third quarter of 2010. The casinos’ net revenue for the quarter was $933.8 million, a 9 percent decline from the third quarter of last year.

By ALEX KOWALSKI Bloomberg News

WASHINGTON – Fewer Americans than forecast filed first-time claims for unemployment insurance payments last week, an indication the labor market may be gaining traction. Applications for jobless benefits decreased 5,000 in the week ended Nov. 12 to 388,000, the lowest level since April, Labor Department figures showed Thursday in Washington. Economists forecast 395,000 claims, according to the median estimate in a

Fund star stepping down

The long-time manager of Legg Mason’s flagship mutual fund, Bill Miller, is stepping down next year. After 30 years at the helm of the Legg Mason Value Trust, the company said Thursday that Miller will cede the reins to co-manager Sam Peters. Legg Mason Capital Management said that the transition had been in the works over the past several years. Under Miller’s management, the Value Trust fund outperformed the S&P index for 15 years through 2005. But the fund began faltering in 2006 and has significantly lagged its peers in recent years.

Bloomberg News survey. The number of people on unemployment benefit rolls fell to a three-year low. As firings diminish, companies may add to payrolls at a faster pace as demand picks up. Sales that grew more than expected in October set the stage for higher levels of output, which could require more employees. "Layoffs have eased, which is a great sign," said Omair Sharif, an economist at RBS Securities Inc. in Stamford, Conn. "The other side of the equation, however, is that firms are still very hesitant to hire.

STATE JOBLESS RATE DOWN The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in Pennsylvania fell to 8.1 percent in October, down from 8.3 percent in September, the state Labor & Industry department announced Thursday. The rate was 8.5

percent in October 2010. Three employment sectors reached record highs, according to data kept since 1990; mining and logging, education and health services and leisure and hospitality.

You’re getting a very gradual improvement in the labor market." Claims estimates ranged from 382,000 to 405,000 in the Bloomberg survey of 44 economists. The Labor Department revised the prior week’s figure

to 393,000 from an initially reported 390,000. A Labor Department official Thursday said there was nothing unusual in the state data last week. The seasonal adjustment process projected a drop in claims because of the holi-

Consumer-reviews site Angie’s List Inc. saw it stock price swell by 25 percent on its first day of trading Thursday, showing ongoing investor appetite for Internet companies. The company’s public debut came the same day that another reviews site — San Francisco-based Yelp Inc. — filed for an initial public offering of stock. The stock, initially priced at $13 per share, rose $3.26 to close at $16.26 on Thursday, valuing Angie’s List at about $904 million.

Why that corporate cash pile isn’t so impressive By BERNARD CONDON AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Hardly a day goes by without some politician or pundit pointing out that companies are hoarding cash — roughly $3 trillion of it. If only they would spend it, the thinking goes, the economy might get better. But the story is not as simple as that. Though it seems to have escaped nearly everyone’s notice, companies have piled up even more debt lately than they have cash. So they aren’t as free to spend as they may seem. “The record cash story is bull market baloney,” says David Stockman, a former U.S. budget director.

WASHINGTON – Builders broke ground on more homes than forecast in October and construction permits climbed to the highest level since March 2010, signs that housing may become less of a laggard in the third year of the U.S. recovery. Starts decreased 0.3 percent to a 628,000 annual rate from September’s 630,000 pace that was slower than previously reported, Commerce Department figures showed Thursday in Washington. The median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News called for a drop to 610,000. Building permits, a proxy for future construction, increased 10.9 percent. Mortgage rates near a record low and a reduced stock of new properties may benefit builders. At the same time, foreclosures are holding down property values as unemployment at 9 percent restrains sales. "We’re in a phase of stabilization, and demand will slowly start to improve," said Russell Price, a senior economist at Ameriprise Financial Services Inc. in Detroit. "Builders have been under-producing relative to sales. Inventories have been coming down." Starts were forecast to decline from a previously reported 658,000 annual rate. Estimates of the 82 economists surveyed by Bloomberg ranged from 575,000 to 640,000. The October results compare with last year’s tally of 587,000 starts, the second-fewest on record.

Toyota production team members wave Thursday after driving the first Corolla manufactured in Mississippi onto the stage during a ceremony that marks the production start at Toyota’s auto manufacturing plant in Blue Springs, Miss. It is the 14th American plant for the Japanese automaker.

Boeing said on Thursday that Indonesia’s Lion Air plans to buy 230 jets, which would be the airplane maker’s biggest order ever if it is finalized. The list price for the Boeing 737s would be $21.7 billion, although it’s common for customers to receive a discount. Lion Air said it plans to buy 201 of Boeing’s 737 Max planes, which are getting design tweaks and new engines to make them more fuel efficient. Lion Air also plans to buy 29 extended-range 737s.

day- shortened week, the official said, and the actual decrease was larger than the government estimated. The four-week moving average, a less-volatile measure, dropped to 396,750 from 400,750. The number of people continuing to collect jobless benefits decreased by 57,000 in the week ended Nov. 5 to 3.61 million, the fewest since September 2008. The continuing claims figure does not include the number of workers receiving extended benefits under federal programs.

Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak & Co., says business debt is too high even if the U.S. manages to stay out of a second recession. If economic growth doesn’t pick up, “they’ll be more bankruptcies, and more defaults,” he predicts. Even if companies used cash to pay off what they owe, they would be left with plenty of debt — in fact, an amount equal to 83 percent of all the goods and services they produce in a year, according to Federal Reserve data for incorporated businesses. In March 2009, the low point of the Great Recession, companies owed 95 percent.

U.S. companies are sitting on $358 billion more cash than they had at the start of the recession in December 2007, according to the latest Federal Reserve figures, from June. But in the same period, what they owed rose $428 billion. Before the recession, you have to go back at least six decades to find a time when companies were so burdened by debt. Heavy debt means companies could have to dip into those reserves of cash to pay their lenders. And when interest rates eventually go up, companies will have to spend more money just to service the debt.

Temperatures this morning are more typical of a day in December and the sun’s rays are as intense as they are on February 25. Bottom line...bundle up! At least we’ll have a good deal of sunshine today with just a bit of cloudiness and a sharp breeze. Tonight for the high school playoff games, temperatures will hover near 34 degrees. The combination of having a high barometer and southerly winds tomorrow will allow for some very nice weather for the Santa parade here in town. Afternoon temperatures will approach 50 and the wind will cooperate. For now, the weather is looking dry for Thanksgiving Day. - Tom Clark

TODAY

NATIONAL FORECAST: Rain and snow will be likely across the Pacific Northwest today as a potent storm system settles into the region. Meanwhile, expect periods of heavy snow from the Cascades into the northern Rockies, where localized blizzard conditions could develop. A few showers will affect Florida, but much of the rest of the country will be dry.
