U.S. Marines who served with former Marine Sgt. Stanley Laskowski of Carbondale ride through a sandstorm in Iraq. The Veterans Administration estimates up to 20 percent of soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001 will return with serious mental health issues like post-traumatic stress disorder, which afflicts Laskowski.

Soldiers return with mental health issues TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

The expected withdrawal of American troops from Iraq by the end of the year promises to be a joyous event for the families of the hundreds of thousands of soldiers now stationed there. But for many families, that joy will quickly be tempered by a stark realization: the soldier who comes back is a very different person than the one who left them months or years ago. Thousands of soldiers, particularly those who saw combat, are expected to return with mental health issues related to their service, including depression, anxiety and, in more severe cases, post-traumatic stress disorder. The Veterans Administration has estimated that up to 20

percent of the 2.1 million soldiers deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan since 2001 will suffer from PTSD or some other mental health problem. Other studies have pegged that number as high as 30 percent to 35 percent, said Patrick Bellon, executive director of Veterans for Common Sense, a nonprofit organization that advocates for improvements in veterans health care. Bellon said there’s a growing concern among veterans groups whether the VA, which Bellon contends is already overwhelmed, will be able to handle the influx of cases once the Iraq and Afghanistan soldiers return home. See ISSUES, Page 10A

WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County Judge Joseph Cosgrove has never fought in a war, but he’s seen the damage combat can do in the faces of the veterans who have appeared in his courtroom. Many of the veterans once served with distinction, but due to substance abuse and mental health issues related to their service find themselves on the

wrong side of the law, Cosgrove said. He’s now working to establish a Veterans Court program that would provide special services to help them get their Cosgrove lives back on track. There are currently 83 Veterans Treatment Courts in the United States, including six in Pennsylvania, according

to the National Association of Drug Treatment Professionals. The first court was established in Buffalo, N.Y. in 2008. The courts are based on the same model as drug treatment courts and mental health courts -- which already exist in Luzerne County -- that focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment. Offenders charged with non-violent crimes are offered the chance to avoid See COURT, Page 10A

Events are costly for school brand Sales of hats, shirts and other merchandise with the school name have plummeted.

PHILADELPHIA — The unfolding Penn State child molestation scandal has slammed the university’s reputation and shaken its loyal fan base that sees the school as more than a campus or a team but a way of life, an identity, a brand. Part of the immediate fallout from the still-developing investigation is economic: Sales of hats, shirts, and other items emblazoned with the Penn State name have plummeted about 40 percent overall compared with the same period last year, according to retailers and industry analysts.

NEW YORK — An “al-Qaida sympathizer” who plotted to bomb police and post offices in New York City as well as U.S. troops returning home has been arrested on numerous terrorismrelated charges, city officials said Sunday. Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced at a news conference the Saturday arrest of Jose Pimentel of Manhattan, “a 27-year-old alQaida sympathizer” who the mayor said was motivated by terrorist propaganda and resentment of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. The mayor said Pimentel, a U.S. citizen originally from the Dominican Republic, was “plotting to bomb police patrol cars and also postal facilities as well as targeted members of our armed

No chance seen for debt deal By MICHAEL A. MEMOLI Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — The cochairs of the congressional debtreduction committee seemed doubtful on Sunday that the panel would reach a deficit-reduction accord by today’s deadline, each blaming the other party’s unwillingness to budge on the issues of taxes and entitlement spending. In separate appearances on television talk shows, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said they held out hope for last-minute progress, but saw little chance of the impasse being broken. Republicans blamed Democrats for being unwilling to seriously revamp Medicare and the other health programs to reduce government spending. Democrats say Republicans refused to substantially break their anti-tax pledge, insisting on a deal that would preserve the George W. Bush-era tax breaks for the wealthy.

Wednesday is the deadline for the12-member Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction to vote on a deficit-reduction package of at least $1.5 trillion. But any plan must be made public 48 hours earlier and be evaluated by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, giving lawmakers little more than a day for a breakthrough. After 14 weeks of talks, members said conversations continued through the weekend. If no deal is reached, the debtceiling accord calls for automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. Whether those would be realized is unclear; Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., said on CBS’ “Face The Nation” that it was important to “change the configuration” of the planned cuts to soften the blow on the Pentagon, in particular. Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., said on Fox that it would be “wimpy” to undo the so-called triggers.

Canadian heavy metal singer Sebastian Bach performs the opening act for Guns N’ Roses at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Township on Sunday night.

Show not ‘Slave’ to the clock Sebastian Bach opens concert years for the recording and release of its latest chart-topping album an hour late. Guns N’ Roses “Chinese Democracy.” known for its late start times. Bach, the former frontman from R E V I E W By BRAD PATTON For The Times Leader

Guess everything at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza on Sunday night was operating on rock ‘n’ roll time. Opening act Sebastian Bach, scheduled to kick off the show at 7:30, took the stage about an hour late. So headliners Guns N’ Roses were pushed back until at least 11 p.m. Of course, that wasn’t completely unexpected as GNR and its notorious ringleader Axl Rose (the only original band member left these days) has been hitting the stage around11p.m. for each show on its first American tour in five years, according to online sources. Still, most headliners would be on stage around 9 for a 7:30 concert. But then again, Rose and GNR have never been like most headlining bands. You may recall it took15

Skid Row, ran onto the arena stage Sunday just past 8:30 p.m., screamed a few obscenities, and launched into his old band’s “Slave to the Grind.” Allthroughtheopeningnumber, and for much of his hour-long performance, Bach wildly banged his head like one of the frenzied fans in the general admission section, letting his long, blond hair stir up memories of his former band’s hairmetal glory days of the late 1980s. As he wildly twirled his microphone cable around his head, Bach lit into one song after another, serving up as many Skid Row favorites as new songs from his recent solo album “Kicking and Screaming.” New songs, including the title trackofthenewalbum,“DirtyPower” and “TunnelVision” went over well with the sizable crowd, but the highlights of his performance were definitely the big Skid Row hits, especially “18 and Life.” “It’s been a long time since I have been in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylva-

nia,” Bach said late in his performance, also recalling the first time he was in the area was for a show at Roller King in 1989. “And all I’ve got to say is three words.” With that, he and his five-piece backing band unleashed “I Remember You” as the crowd held up lighters and cell phones and joined in heartily with the1989 power ballad. Bach closed his portion of the show with another Skid Row favorite, “Youth Gone Wild” and thanked the crowd for rocking along with him for the past 25 years. “Thank you for a great night of rock ‘n’ roll,” he said as he introduced his band and made his way off the stage. “Have a great time with Axl Rose and Guns N’ Roses!” Upcoming dates for Guns N’ Roses include Wednesday in Albany, N.Y., and Saturday in Camden, N.J. The next concert at the Mohegan Sun Arena is Five Finger Death Punch on Saturday. For a complete review of the late show starring Guns N’ Roses, please go to www.timesleader.com.

Police are investigating a fire that destroyed three recreational vehicles Sunday night at the John’s Auto Body lot along Casey Avenue in Wilkes-Barre Township. It was the second time since Friday afternoon that firefighters were called to put out burning vehicles on the property. A camper was set on fire Friday and spread, destroying a total of nine vehicles, said township fire chief John Yuknavich. Juveniles were reportedly seen running from the area of the Friday fire, he said.

Taylor Swift wins 3 trophies at AMAs By DERRIK J. LANG AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES — Taylor Swift was crowned artist of the year at the American Music Awards for a second time. “This is so crazy!” the country superstar said after she beat such contenders as Adele, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to capture all three awards that she was nominated for at Sunday’s ceremony, including artist of the year, the show’s highest accolade that she previously claimed in 2009. “I ended up writing the record by myself, so the fact that you would honor it this way, you have no idea what this means to me,” said Swift after winning the tro-

phy for favorite country album for “Speak Now.” She was also awarded the prize for favorite country female artist. Nicki Minaj, the pink-loving hip-hop diva, won two awards Sunday. She kicked off the 39th annual fan-favorite ceremony by sporting a pair of speakers on her much-talked about posterior and was later honored as favorite rap/hip-hop artist, besting a group that included mentor Lil Wayne, and won favorite rap/hiphop album for “Pink Friday.” “There’s so much love in this room,” beamed the pink-haired Minaj. Adele had been the night’s leading nominee with four nods,

but didn’t have much of a presence at the show: She was absent from the ceremony because she is recovering from recent throat surgery. Adele tied Swift with three awards: favorite pop/rock female artist, adult contemporary artist and pop/rock album for “21.” Other winners included Maroon 5 as favorite pop-rock band/ duo/group, Blake Shelton as favorite country male artist, Lady Antebellum as favorite country band/duo/group, Beyonce as favorite soul/R&B female artist, Rihanna for favorite soul/R&B album for “Loud” and Hot Chelle Rae as new artist of the year.

WEST WYOMING - Celebrating its 10th year in business, the Sixth Street Flea Market can offer treasures and collectibles galore along with those hard-tofind items. Chris Dunn, of Indianapolis, Ind., happily found a flame deflector for a gas stove. He said he was looking for one around his area but came up empty.

WYOMING -- Dressed in Elmo Christmas pajamas, 18-month-old Zachary Stone of Wyoming watched from the porch with his dad, Chris, 38, as nearly a dozen fire trucks from neighboring municipalities blared through the neighborhood Sunday. The mild weather was perfect for the Santa Parade, said Forty Fort mayor, Boyd Hoats. Although its neighbor, Wyoming, has held the parade for the past six years, this is the first year Forty Fort participated. The parade began at First Street in Wyoming and ended with a tree lighting ceremony at Forty Fort Park. The Marine Wing Support Squadron 472, the National Guard, council members from the two boroughs, and several floats, including a Nutcracker-themed King’s College float, participated in the parade. Perched atop his dad’s shoulders, 19month-old Michael Badman of Wyoming hopped excitedly as the Christmas train float glided along Wyoming Avenue. Looking down at his mom, Heather, 28, he pointed and squealed when he caught sight of Santa.

Carlene Price, township secretary and treasurer, said one large expense increase in 2012 will be $20,000 in loan payments for a new one-ton Dodge dump truck purchased in 2011. Due to numerous winter storms, the municipality used up its supply of road salt and anti-skid material. Under the proposed budget, $14,000 is planned for snow and ice removal, an increase of $5,462. “There is an increase in the cost of trucking the material to us and our stock pile was used up due to the winter storms last year,” Price said.

Gadhafi son to be tried in Libya

Pepper spray cops on leave

ZINTAN, Libya — Libya’s new leaders said Sunday they will try Moammar Gadhafi’s son at home and not hand him over to the International Criminal Court, where he’s charged with crimes against humanity. The government also announced the capture of the toppled regime’s intelligence minister, who is also wanted by the court. In one of several emerging complications, however, the former rebel faction that captured Seif al-Islam Gadhafi a day earlier is refusing to deliver him to national authorities in Tripoli, raising concern over whether he will get a

proper trial and demonstrating the interim leaders’ weak hold over their fractured nation. In the capital, Information Minister Mahmoud Shammam said ex-Intelligence Minister Abdullah al-Senoussi was captured alive on Sunday by revolutionary fighters from a southern region called Fazan, not far from where Gadhafi’s son was seized on Saturday while trying to flee to neighboring Niger. Fighters tracking al-Senoussi for two days caught up with him at his sister’s house in Deerat al-Shati, about 40 miles south of the desert city of Sebha, said fighter Abdullah al-Sughayer. There were few other immediate details on his capture, and it was not clear whether his captors would also resist turning him over to Tripoli. Though they are wanted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, Libya will likely seek to

try both men at home. Speaking earlier in the day, before alSenoussi’s capture, the information minister said Seif al-Islam, the ousted Libyan leader’s one-time heir apparent, must be tried in Libya even though the country’s new leaders have yet to establish a court system. “It is only fair for the Libyan people that he is tried here. ... Seif al-Islam

committed crimes against the Libyan people,” Shammam said. “The ICC is just a secondary court, and the people of Libya will not allow Seif al-Islam to be tried outside,” Shammam said. The ICC indicted the two men along with Gadhafi in June for unleashing a campaign of murder and torture to suppress the uprising against the Gadhafi regime that broke out in mid-February. Al-Senoussi, Gadhafi’s brother-inlaw, was also one of six Libyans convicted in absentia and sentenced to life in prison in France for the 1989 bombing of a French passenger jet over Niger that killed all 170 people on board. ICC spokesman Fadi El Abdallah said Sunday that Libya would have to convincingly lay out its arguments in what is called a “challenge of admissibility” if it wanted to try the two men at home instead of sending them to The Hague court.

California university placed two of its police officers on administrative leave Sunday because of their involvement in the pepper spraying of passively sitting protesters, while the school’s chancellor accelerated an investigation into the incident amid calls for her resignation. Officials at the University of California, Davis refused to identify the two officers but one was a veteran of many years on the force and other “fairly new” to the department, the school’s Police Chief Annette Spicuzza told The Associated Press. She would not elaborate further because of the pending probe. Videos posted online of the incident Friday clearly shows one riot-gear clad officer dousing the line of protesters with spray as they sat in a line with their arms intertwined. Spicuzza told the AP that the second officer was identified during an intense review of several videos.

Wall Street financier dies Theodore J. Forstmann, a longtime Wall Street financier who was a major player during the wave of corporate takeovers in the 1980s, including the battle for RJR Nabisco in 1988, died Sunday at the age of 71. The cause was brain cancer, according to a statement from sports marketing giant IMG, where Forstmann served as chairman and CEO. He was the senior founding partner of the investment firm Forstmann Little & Co. Forstmann Little, which was founded in 1978, completed leveraged buyouts of companies including Dr. Pepper, Yankee Candle, the cable TV technology company General Instrument and Community Health Systems.

Conservatives are elected Spain’s opposition conservatives swept commandingly into power and into the hot seat Sunday as voters enduring a 21.5 percent jobless rate and stagnant economy dumped the Socialists — the third time in as many weeks Europe’s debt crisis has claimed a government. With 90 percent of the votes from the election counted, the center-right PP won 186 seats compared to 154 in the last legislature, while the Socialists plummeted from 169 to 110, their worst performance ever. The PP, with leader and future prime minister Mariano Rajoy, thus won an absolute majority and resounding mandate from the troubled electorate. It needed 176 votes for such a majority.

Egypt may see another revolt By HANNAH ALLAM and MOHANNAD SABRY McClatchy Newspapers

CAIRO — Egypt plunged deeper into political crisis just eight days before elections, as security forces attacked protesters and torched their tents Sunday in unrest that appears headed toward a second uprising, this time against Egypt’s military rulers. Thousands of young Egyptians battled security forces for a second day in the streets surrounding Tahrir Square, the nerve center of the revolt that brought down President Hosni Mubarak and left the military in charge of Egypt. Clashes and civil disobedience continued in Alexandria, Suez and other big cities as protesters expressed their solidarity with the capital. By nightfall, three people were dead, hundreds were wounded, fires burned in the square, and Egyptians worried that the violence would force a delay in par-

More police departments look to tune public out D.C. police became one of the latest departments to adopt encryption. By ERIC TUCKER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Police departments around the country are moving to shield their radio communications from the public as cheap, userfriendly technology has made it easy for anyone to use handheld devices to keep tabs on officers responding to crimes. The practice of encryption has become increasingly common from Florida to New York and west to California, with law enforcement officials saying they want to keep criminals from using officers’ internal chatter to evade them. But journalists and

neighborhood watchdogs say open communications ensure that the public receives information as quickly as possible that can be vital to their safety. D.C. police became one of the latest departments to adopt the practice this fall. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said recently that a group of burglars who police believe were following radio communications on their smartphones pulled off more than a dozen crimes before ultimately being arrested and that drug dealers fled a laundromat after a sergeant used his radio to call in other officers — suggesting that they, too, might have been listening in. “Whereas listeners used to be tied to stationary scanners, new technology has allowed people — and especially crim-

inals — to listen to police communications on a smartphone from anywhere,” Lanier testified at a D.C. Council committee hearing this

month. “When a potential criminal can evade capture and learn, ‘There’s an app for that,’ it’s time to change our practices.”

Rocket-propelled grenades reportedly struck a Damascus office of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s Baath Party before dawn Sunday in the first attack of its kind in the capital since an antigovernment uprising began last spring. Few details were available on the unusually brazen attack, responsibility for which was claimed by a group of military defectors calling itself the Free Syrian Army. The Turkey-based defectors have joined protesters and appear to be taking the lead in an increasingly armed rebellion that analysts fear will lead to a civil war that could further destabilize the Middle East. The region already is in turmoil from this year’s mass uprisings against autocratic regimes. The Free Syrian Army also claimed to have killed or wounded about 20 soldiers and regime loyalists in a string of attacks on checkpoints in a Damascus suburb this weekend. None of the claims could be independently verified; state media had not reported on any attacks by midday Sunday. The Free Syrian Army made the claims on its Facebook page, saying the attacks were in retaliation for the regime failing to meet a deadline for releasing prisoners. It called the assault “a number of parallel and synchronized operations in the heart of the capital, Damascus,” and listed each target: the Baath Party building, a political security office, a base and an intelligence office belonging to the Air Force, and a “group of thugs.” “Members of the brigade used rockets and medium and light weapons, and returned victorious,” the Free Syrian Army statement said. Independent journalists are banned from working in Syria, so most documentation of the bloodshed comes from activists’ statements, witnesses reached by phone and amateur videos posted online. Thabet Salem, a Syrian journalist who lives about half a mile from the Baath Party building in central Damascus, told Al-Jazeera English that he was awakened just after 4 a.m. by two loud booms. He later learned that the target was a main office for the party, which has controlled Syria for decades.

WILKES-BARRE -- The fruit of the vine was flowing in colors of red, tawny and white at the Pennsylvania International Wine & Food Festival being held through today at Genetti’s. The event was scheduled to coincide with the first tasting of the Beaujolais Nouveau in France, a customary French holiday which celebrates the full rich red wine of the Beaujolais region. “This particular festival is different from many of the other local wine events because we’re featuring international wines and spirits,” said event organizer Thom Greco. “Other festivals were tasting Pennsylvania wines exclusively. With international wines from countries like Italy, Spain and France, we can give people a variety of wines which will pair well with the food we’re serving this weekend.” Greco said the thought behind the event was to showcase local restaurants and chefs and allow them to present their particular specialties to a willing audience in pairing with a selected wine offering. Event sponsor Southern Wine Distributors supplied a wide selection of wines, which featured Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as vodkas from countries like Poland and Sweden. “It’s a win-win situation,” said Greco. “They supply the wines

It’s amazing how people in the area respond to these types of events.” “We drove up from Berwick to taste the wines,” said Chris and Shelly Hittle, as they enjoyed a glass of Merlot. “We always try to find something to do on the weekends and when we heard about this event on the radio, we decided to come.” The two-day festival included cooking demonstrations from local chefs Shawn Jackson and Peter Adams as well as a guest appearance by Hell’s Kitchen contestant and NEPA native Maria Torrisi. An array of pastas, risottos, arancini and sushimi were served

at various stations throughout the ballroom and several standalone carving stations offered mouth-watering slices of perfectly roasted prime beef to the hungry wine-tasters. “Our passion is wine tasting,” stated Monica Chupka of Shavertown, who came out with her friend Donna Pautak of WilkesBarre. “We have a small group of friends who generally meet from house to house, but it’s nice to come to an event like this. It’s exciting.” The event continues today from 6-10 p.m. Tickets are $30 at the door or $20 in advance.

WEST PITTSTON – Serving up a homemade Thanksgiving dinner with sides of friendship and camaraderie is the menu for a free dinner to help area flood victims. As hundreds of area homeowners are still trying to clean up and repair their flood-ravaged homes, a church in western Pennsylvania, The Hope Mission DuBois Inc., in DuBois, will offer them an opportunity to relax and enjoy a free home cooked traditional holiday meal. The dinner will be held from noon to 4 p.m. on Thursday in Fellowship Hall of The Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, 317 Luzerne Ave., West Pittston. The menu will include turkey, stuffing, potatoes, vegetables and fresh-made pies. “Everything will be made from scratch,” said Lena Ogershock, event organizer and church member. “We have a team of volunteers preparing the food.” Ogershock said the plan is to prepare enough food to provide 150 dinners. Pastor Don Strope of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church said the free dinner is open to residents in all area communities whose homes were flooded. Ogershock and her husband, Dave, were inspired to do more than volunteer to help clean out homes. Soon after the Susquehanna retreated back into its river bed, the Ogershocks traveled three hours to volunteer with their church group. The couple was shocked to see the damage

“This is the first time I can recall ever seeing a decline of sales right out of the box,” said Matt Powell, an analyst with industry research organization SportsOneSource Group. “I have never seen anything like this before. “But we’ve never seen a scandal quite like this before.” Former football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky stands accused of sexually abusing eight boys, some on campus, over 15 years. College-branded merchandise accounts for more than $4 billion in annual retail sales, and Penn State typically ranks in the top 10 in sales, capturing roughly $80 million annually, Powell said. “They probably made about $3 million last year from sales of royalty products,” he said. “This is a very unusual situation, and my gut tells me it’s not going away, at least in the short term.” For the week after the scandal broke, Penn State’s slice of the market share was about 1.93 percent. During the same week last year, that figure stood at 2.67 percent, Powell said. If consumers continue to express their displeasure with their wallets, it could spell huge financial losses to add to Penn State’s newly marred reputation. The ensuing fallout from the scandal has cost coaching legend Joe Paterno and longtime president Graham Spanier their jobs. Athletic Director Tim Curley has been placed on administrative leave, and Vice President Gary Schultz, who was in charge of the university’s police department, has retired. Both are charged with lying to the investigating grand jury and failure to report to police. They maintain their innocence, as does Sandusky. In addition to the ongoing criminal investigation, Penn State and the NCAA have started their own reviews and the U.S. Department of Education is examining whether Penn State violated federal law by failing to report incidents of sexual abuse on campus. “We’ve never seen anything

like this,” said Brian Swallow, vice president of business development at Fanatics LLC, a privately held seller of licensed sports merchandise. “This is unique; there’s nothing we can compare it to.” The Jacksonville, Fla.-based company does not provide sales figures, but Swallow said the company’s Penn State sales have dropped 40 percent since the scandal broke, compared with the same period last year. Just as no two scandals are alike, fan response varies from case to case. Swallow said sales of Ohio State merchandise fell last year in the wake of an NCAA investigation into football players accepting cash and discounted or free tattoos in exchange for Buckeyes memorabilia such as jerseys and championship rings. The scandal cost coach Jim Tressel his job and led to several players’ suspensions. There was a drop and rebound for Ohio State merchandise sales, Swallow said, “but the Penn State drop-off is double that of anything we’ve ever seen.” “This is a large story and an unfortunate one. It really hits home for a lot of people,” Swallow said. “It’s one thing to have a kid sign a jersey and get paid for it; this is obviously something very different.” A sporting goods store in the heart of State College said sales of Paterno-specific merchandise are up. “I’m not sure it relates to the situation or if people don’t know how long those items will be available,” said Caroline Gummo, advertising manager of The Family Clothesline shop. Also selling briskly is a new Penn State T-shirt that features a football helmet with a blue ribbon representing child abuse prevention, she said. Five dollars from the sale of each shirt will be donated to the Let Go, Let Peace Come In Foundation, a Pennsylvania-based nonprofit that helps adult victims of childhood sexual abuse and is working with the attorney for several men who said they were victimized by Sandusky. “Those have been a great success. We have seen people coming into the store specifically for those T-shirts,” she said.

services returning from abroad.” He was under surveillance by New York police who were working with a confidential informant and was in the process of building a bomb; no injury to anyone or damage to property is alleged, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. In addition, authorities have no evidence that Pimentel was working with anyone else, the mayor said. “He appears to be a total lone wolf,” the mayor said. “He was not part of a larger conspiracy emanating from abroad.” Instead, Bloomberg said, Pimentel represents the type of threat FBI Director Robert Mueller has warned about as U.S. forces erode the ability of terrorists to carry out large scale attacks. Pimentel, also known as Muhammad Yusuf, is accused of having an explosive substance Saturday when he was arrested that he planned to use against others and property to terrorize the public. The charges accuse him of conspiracy going back at least to October 2010, and include first-degree criminal possession of a weapon as a crime of terrorism, and soliciting support for a terrorist act. He was to be arraigned later Sunday. Kelly said a confidential informant had numerous conversations with Pimentel on Sept. 7.

Editorial

WORLD OPINION

Canada can capitalize on Obama’s pipeline policy

W

HILE U.S. President Obama puts personal politics ahead of his country’s critical need for oil via the Keystone XL pipeline, Canada’s wooing of the Asian option should move quickly beyond simply courtship. It should ramp up the Northern Gateway pipeline to our west coast post-haste. We have the oil sands crude that China and India are lusting after. If the faltering Obama administration doesn’t want it, then Canada should move forward immediately to secure oil exports to Asia-based clients. The Northern Gateway pipeline is therefore key. In politics as in comedy, timing is everything, and so Prime Minister Stephen Harper had the perfect stage during a recent meeting of Pacific-rim leaders to lay out his position to Obama. And kudos to him

for doing just that. Harper made sure the international media were aware of Obama’s real reason for delaying the $7billion Keystone XL pipeline that would hook up Alberta’s ethical oil with refineries in Texas. Dumb political reasons, at that. There’s Obama’s decision to breathe life back into the crippling “buy American” rules for accepting foreign exports and the odious plan to raise $100 million by nicking Canadian travelers with a $5.50 “passenger inspection fee.” He is grasping at straws, and knuckling under to the Hollywood crowd. Until the 2012 election is over, American politics will be contorting itself for at-home votes, and saying whatever is necessary to get them. The Ottawa Sun, Ontario

On China-U.S. relations

F

REQUENT high-level contacts have become a prominent feature of relations between China and the United States. Given the many woes the world is facing today and the current status of China-U.S. relations, which is like a calm river with surging undercurrents, the significance of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s meeting with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama on Nov. 12, their second this month, was beyond routine. Their meeting, held on the sidelines of the Economic Leaders Meeting of the AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation in Hawaii, was a clear signal

that the two countries still have far more common ground than they do differences. There are undoubtedly problems at the bilateral level as Washington’s China policy tends to be manipulated by its domestic issues. Mutual political trust also has been undermined on occasion by Washington’s willful disregard of China’s major concerns and core interests. The growth and dynamism of our two countries are closely intertwined. Any misjudgment and misstep will have dire consequences that will benefit neither side’s interests in the end. China Daily, Beijing

Eurozone crisis troubling

T

HE CRISIS IN the eurozone is, like the single currency itself, a political as well as an economic issue. British Prime Minister David Cameron has declared that he is preparing for the worst: He is right. We have no idea what the outcome will be, whether a breakup of the eurozone or a bailout for Italy or merely a drastic reworking of the European Central Bank’s rules to enable it to intervene more decisively in the bond markets. The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, said that Europe needs to change its rules in order to solve the crisis. The implications for less powerful states are large: German

bankers could decide sensitive political issues. In states such as Ireland, this already is happening. Britain has taken a sanguine view of this development; the chancellor, George Osborne, has said that he favors closer fiscal union. But however we might approve of more budget discipline, closer integration may not be in our interests: It has very worrying implications. Britain has neither the will nor the means to prevent greater Franco-German hegemony in the eurozone, but we can take a robust approach to any attempt to shift the balance of power toward other financial center.

MALLARD FILLMORE

Economy needs long-term growth, not short-term boost IT’S BEEN more than two years since the recession officially ended – on paper – in June 2009, but a persistently stubborn high unemployment rate has been a drag on a slow-growing economy. It’s no surprise it has given rise to disgruntled movements such as the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street. President Barack Obama has responded to the lack of jobs by proposing the American Jobs Act, essentially a second stimulus bill with an estimated $450 billion price tag. It’s true that government spending in the short run creates jobs, and this bill is no different. But the economy needs to be placed on a firm path of long-term growth in order to generate enough family-sustaining jobs. The president’s economic team rightly recognizes that the economy suffers from weak demand. However, the administration has responded with a mismatched collection of temporary policies that try to spark permanent change. Economic history clearly shows that consumers and businesses alike make decisions based on the long-term outlook, not short-term incentives from Washington. Consider consumer spending. To bolster weak consumer demand, the Obama plan calls for a temporary payroll tax cut. In fact, workers are enjoying a partial payroll tax holiday right now and, as economic theory predicts, are using the money to pay down debt or add to their savings. People consume based upon their permanent incomes and recognize that the temporary tax cuts eventually will be discontinued. It’s a good idea to improve consumers’ balance sheets, but it likely will fall short as an economic catalyst. The bill also tries this same short-term

MAIL BAG

TIMOTHY F. KEARNEY relief for producers. There is tax relief for companies that hire new workers or increase wages, and for hiring veterans or long-term unemployed workers. These proposals fundamentally misunderstand the dynamics of the labor market. Businesses hire workers whose productivity contributes at least as much to the company as they are paid. If the company can afford to hire them based only on the tax incentives, these jobs will disappear once the tax breaks end. Businesses are unlikely to hire as much as the administration expects. This mismatch also undergirds his $35 billion support for public-sector workers. While it’s being billed as support for emergency first-responders and teachers, it will enable states to keep fewer essential employees on the payroll. First responders, after all, rarely are the first workers to be laid off. With state and local governments struggling to find a sustainable size for their publicsector workforces, this sort of temporary subsidy merely postpones the inevitable. Infrastructure improvements – such as building roads and water systems, rehabilitating public buildings and developing a government “infrastructure bank’’ – are envisioned through Obama’s jobs act. However, the last stimulus bill demonstrated that there aren’t many shovel-ready jobs that can be started immediately, as projects still must proceed through various permitting issues. While infrastructure spending is vital for the economy, it is not a likely source of immediate stimulus.

A very important social component of the American Jobs Act is the extension of unemployment benefits to the long-term unemployed. Preservation of the safety net is essential for people who find themselves unemployed through no fault of their own. But it’s important to recognize that safetynet spending does not really stimulate the economy. The unemployed can’t increase their spending beyond a bare minimum. If anything, their dollars will go toward lowcost goods, many of which are made abroad. Much like the Tea Party before it, Occupy Wall Street reflects society’s unease over the lack of recovery from the recession. It is made up of different groups, ranging from anarchists to unions to the unemployed to the middle class. They don’t have a unified message yet, beyond a call to separate politics from money. Without a more concrete platform, it will be difficult for these protesters to break through to the voting public and have the same political success as the Tea Party, which championed no bailouts and less debt. If this message vacuum is filled with a Woodstock-like image, an important opportunity will have been missed. The Tea Party showed that a leaderless revolution can bring change to Washington. Occupy Wall Street has the opportunity to keep the mobilization of the public going. Timothy F. Kearney is an assistant professor of business at Misericordia University in Dallas Township.

ake up, America! The U.S. Postal Service is being destroyed from the inside. They are closing small, local post offices, threatening to stop Saturday deliveries, doing away with door-to-door deliveries and possibly turning the postal service over to a private company. Do you think a private company will mail your letters for the same prices as the post office? What will happen to businesses that depend on bulk mailings or to the elderly who rely on the mail for their prescriptions? What about birthday and Christmas cards or wedding invitations? This affects all of us. There must be ways to make the post office more efficient. How much money is wasted by having bosses, with their clipboards, follow around the carriers? Don’t believe the spin from the post office when

it says there’s not enough mail. Ask your letter carrier or window clerk. Look at the lines at the windows of the post office. Write your senators and representatives and tell them that you want the postal service’s processing center to stay in Scranton. There is a public meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Scranton High School. Please attend.

n all probability, Americans have the most obese children in the world. When I went to high school and middle school, gym class was mandatory, barring any physical excuse by a doctor. There were daily exercises, even physical activity after school when we played games with each other. Families actually ate the majority of their meals – most likely made by mom – together at the kitchen table. Today, there are cheesy bacon bowls, super-sized types of sodas, snacks and junk food. The mothers and fathers ask, “Why are my children obese?” To tell you the truth, I don’t have a clue.

“The crisis is extremely significant at current levels of demand. Just try to imagine if more of the veterans who are eligible begin to use services,” Bellon said. “If a couple hundred thousand more show up on their doorstep they need to meet that demand.” As of June 30 this year, 211,819 veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts have been diagnosed as potentially having PTSD, according to a quarterly report issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs. That includes 1,376 veterans who have been seen at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Plains Township or its outpatient clinics. A study released in 2008 by the RAND Center for Military Health Policy Research entitled “Invisible Wounds of War” raised concerns regarding gaps in treatment for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans seeking care for PTSD and other mental health conditions. The study found that roughly half of the veterans who have symptoms of PTSD or major depression seek treatment. Of those who did seek treatment, only slightly more than half got “minimally adequate care.”

jail by enrolling in a strict probation program that requires them to undergo intensive counseling and other services. If the defendant successfully completes the program, their criminal record is expunged. Cosgrove said he became interested in establishing a veterans court based on his dealings with troubled veterans both as a judge and private attorney. “Those who have served in harm’s way have experienced circumstances that the average citizen can’t imagine,” Cosgrove said. “They were there because we asked them to go. We owe them something when they don’t come back whole and because of that find themselves in the criminal justice system.”

Severe consequences The consequences for veterans and their families are severe. Veterans suffering from untreated mental disorders are far more likely to have problems with substance abuse and are at higher risk to commit suicide. There were a total of 2,293 suicides of active duty members from 2001 to September 2011, with 298 of those occurring in a war zone, according to statistics compiled by Veterans for Common Sense. Former Marine Sgt. Stanley Laskowski of Carbondale is among those who returned from combat with the “invisible wounds” of war. The decorated Iraqi war vet suffers from severe PTSD brought on by his 5½ month tour of duty in Iraq in 2003. Laskowski, 33, maintains the VA’s failure to properly treat him when he first sought care in 2007 caused his condition to worsen to the point that he’s been declared 100 percent disabled and is unable to work. Dr. Antonette Zeiss, chief consultant for the VA’s Office of Mental Health in Washington, D.C., said she’s aware of the concerns that have been raised, but believes the VA – which saw more than1.28

million veterans for mental health issues in 2010 -- provides exceptional care. Zeiss said the VA, which operates the National Center for PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, is the leading organization conducting research on PTSD. That’s resulted in significant advances in the treatment of the disorder in the past five years. Those treatments focus on a combination of individual and group counseling, coupled with medications, said Zeiss and Dr. Matthew Dooley, a staff psychologist at the VA Medical Center in Plains Township. “It starts off by educating patients so they can learn to identify and understand their symptoms and learn coping skills so they can manage them better,” Dooley said. The VA is continually evaluating treatment options and modifies its approach as more information and data becomes available, Dooley said. There have been significant advances in treatments since 2006. “As treatments evolve and become more effective, you adapt your system so that you can help patients recover more effectively,” he said. Today the VA focuses treatment primarily on two evidence-based therapies, Cognitive Process Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy. The therapies encourage veterans to talk about their trauma and teach them how to deal with anxiety and feelings of guilt they experience, Zeiss and Dooley said.

“Cognitive process therapy deals with self punishing distortions. Sometimes people can feel personally responsible for the death of a colleague in combat,” Zeiss said. “Cognitive process therapy deals with those distorted, self-critical thoughts.” “Prolonged exposure therapy puts more of an emphasis on learning how to live again in the world even though you have negative memories,” Zeiss said. Treatment issues Bellon agreed the VA has made advances in therapies, but there remains significant concern regarding the availability of mental health services, he said. An internal staff survey recently conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs revealed that 70 percent of the 272 respondents don’t think the VA has the resources to handle the increasing demand for mental health services. According to the survey, 37 percent of the respondents said they cannot schedule an appointment for a new patient within the14-day standard the department mandates. Zeiss acknowledged the concerns raised by staff, but said those feelings conflict with other data the VA collects. “Our internal data shows that 95 percent of all patients new to mental health are seen within 14 days,” she said. “We track that carefully and think we are doing very well in that field.” The VA has also taken significant steps to improve services, in-

cluding the establishment of a suicide prevention program that includes a national hotline for veterans. The hotline received more than 460,000 calls as of July 31, 2011 that resulted in16,855 “rescues” of veterans who had attempted or were on the verge of attempting suicide, according to Veterans for Common Sense. The VA has also significantly increased mental health staff in recent years, Zeiss said. Since 2005, the VA has hired an additional 7,500 mental health professionals, giving it a total of 21,000. Bellon said those are positive steps, but he remains concerned that the efforts have come too late. “They are beginning to add people. The problem is it’s the tip of a problem that’s been allowed to accumulate. It’s going to take a substantial amount of time,” Bellon said. Zeiss said there are no immediate plans to hire more mental health professionals, but the department is continually monitoring the situation. “We are thinking about … what happens when all the service members come back from Iraq. We are looking at models to ensure we are appropriately prepared for what may be ahead.”

Many troubled vets Officials with veterans organizations and the criminal justice system have expressed concern regarding the growing number of veterans appearing in court who have serious mental health and substance abuse issues. An August 2008 report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimated that veterans make up 9 percent of the prison population in the United States. Statistics regarding the number of veterans who have appeared in Luzerne County Court were not available. But Cosgrove and Judge Lewis Wetzel, who oversees Luzerne County’s drug and mental health treatment courts, said the numbers are growing. The Department of Veterans Affairs established outreach programs at its medical facilities nationwide several years ago as part of its efforts to enhance mental health treatment, said Vince Riccardo, spokesman for the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Plains Township. Wetzel said Luzerne County has worked closely with the local VA to obtain assistance for veterans. Kim Sapolis-Lacey, a veterans outreach specialist with the hos-

pital, said she receives an average of five to seven referrals each month for veterans facing criminal charges, although not all of them qualify for the specialty treatment courts. “The prime thing we do is connect veterans to treatment at the VA. Many may not have access to Luzerne County health care any Judge Joseph other way,” SaCosgrove polis-Lacey said. “We make sure all their needs are met, including treatments that may not be available in the community, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries and other issues related specifically to their military experience.” Expansion of efforts Cosgrove wants to expand on those efforts. A key component of veterans courts is establishing a mentoring program that pairs troubled veterans with other veterans. That type of program has been shown to be particularly helpful because veterans feel more comfortable speaking with other vets, who have a better understanding of what they’re going through, he said. Cosgrove, who was appointed in January 2010 to fill the unexpired term of former judge Mark Ciavarella, had hoped to have the court established by the time he leaves the bench at the end of December. That doesn’t appear likely as the plans for the court remain in the preliminary stage. He’s continuing to work with various organizations to get the structure in place so that it can hopefully come to fruition next year. “Our soldiers served with honor and integrity,” he said. “We need to address the things they may have suffered as a result of that service and restore themselves as productive citizens.”

Final Chase Standings

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Tony Stewart insisted he wasn’t a title contender when NASCAR’s championship race began. When it became clear he actually was a viable threat, he kicked it into another gear and vowed to go for broke in his pursuit of Carl Edwards. Did he ever. Stewart used a powerful and relentless drive — some might suggest the best in NASCAR history — on Sunday in the season finale to seize his third NASCAR championship. He overcame a hole in the grill of his Chevrolet, a rain delay, used debatable fuel strategy and made 118 passes on the track to win at Homestead-Miami Speedway. “That shows how bad I wanted to win this thing,” Stewart said. “When you’re

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice reacts after scoring a touchdown in the second half of an NFL game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Baltimore on Sunday.

Flacco leads Ravens past feisty Bengals The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Joe Flacco threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns, and the Baltimore Ravens squeezed by the Cincinnati Bengals 31-24 on Sunday to move into first place in the AFC North. Flacco connected with rookie Torrey Smith on a 38-yard TD to give Baltimore (7-3) a 31-14 lead early in the fourth quarter. Smith finished with six catches for 165 yards, while Ray Rice ran for 104 yards and two scores. The Bengals (6-4) got to the Baltimore 7 in the final minute but could not score the tying touchdown. The victory moved the Ravens into a first-place tie with Pittsburgh, but Baltimore is 2-0 against the Steelers and holds the tiebreaker advantage. Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 373 yards but was intercepted three times. 49ers 23, Cardinals 7 SAN FRANCISCO — Alex Smith threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns and San Francisco forced five turnovers on a soggy day at Candlestick Park. Smith tossed scores to Kyle Williams and Vernon Davis on the first two drives of the third quarter to help the 49ers pull away for their eighth straight victory. San Francisco (9-1) can clinch the NFC West with a win at Baltimore on Thursday and a loss by Seattle against Washington next weekend. Bears 31, Chargers 20 CHICAGO — Jay Cutler threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns, and Chicago won its fifth straight. Chicago (7-3) continued its remarkable turnaround and handed the Chargers their fifth straight loss, their longest slide since an 0-5 start in 2003. But it wasn’t easy. Falcons 23, Titans 17 ATLANTA — Roddy White had seven receptions for a season-high 147 yards and Jonathan Babineaux led an Atlanta defense that held off Tennessee. The Falcons (6-4) bounced back from an overtime loss to New Orleans, but it wasn’t easy. Jake Locker took over for injured Matt Hasselbeck and threw a pair of touchdown passes to Nate Washington to make a game of it for the Titans (5-5).

Browns 14, Jaguars 10 CLEVELAND — Jacksonville rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s pass into the end zone on the game’s final play was incomplete, allowing the Browns to escape. Gabbert rifled a 3-yard pass high over the middle that went off wide receiver Mike Thomas’ outstretched hands, and the Browns (4-6) celebrated a win they nearly gave away.

Packers 35, Buccaneers 26 GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and Green Bay survived a scare to remain unbeaten. With the Packers leading by two points and trying to fend off a rally by Tampa Bay in the fourth quarter, Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for a clinching 40-yard touchdown with 2:55 left in the game — Nelson’s second TD catch of the day. Raiders 27, Vikings 21 MINNEAPOLIS — Carson Palmer threw for 164 yards and a touchdown and Oakland capitalized on several mistakes by Minnesota. Michael Bush rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders (6-4). Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was carted off the field with a neck injury in the fourth quarter. Coach Hue Jackson said Heyward-Bey had total movement in his limbs, and hoped the player would join the team on the trip home and undergo further tests in Oakland. Dolphins 35, Bills 8 MIAMI — Miami set up two touchdowns with interceptions, Matt Moore threw for three scores, and the Dolphins’ improbable midseason surge gained momentum. After losing their first seven games, the Dolphins (3-7) have three consecutive victories for the first time since 2008, winning by a combined score of 86-20. Buffalo (5-5) has been outscored 106-26 while losing three in a row. Lions 49, Panthers 35 DETROIT — Matthew Stafford’s fifth touchdown pass of the game, a 7-yarder to Brandon Pettigrew with 2:32 left, completed another big rally. Detroit (7-3) became the first NFL team since at least 1950 to win three games in a season after trailing by at least 17 points, according to STATS, LLC. Carolina (2-8) led 24-7 in the second quarter.

Cowboys 27, Redskins 24 LANDOVER, Md. — Dan Bailey kicked a 39-yard field goal 9:21 into overtime to give Seahawks 24, Rams 7 Dallas its third straight win. ST. LOUIS — Sidney Rice The Cowboys rallied after caught a touchdown pass, drew allowing a late fourth-quarter a pass interference that led to a touchdown and improved to field goal for Seattle. 6-4, keeping the pressure on Chris Clemons had three of the first-place New York Giants Seattle’s five sacks on Sam in the NFC East.

Cutler may miss up to 8 weeks Report says Bears quarterback broke his thumb in Sunday’s win. The Associated Press

CHICAGO — The Chicago Tribune is reporting Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler broke his right thumb during Sunday’s 3120 victory over the San Diego Chargers and will miss six to eight weeks. The Bears declined comment. Cutler’s agent, Bus Cook, did not return messages from The Associated Press. The Tribune reports Cutler was injured trying to prevent a touchdown on a 64yard interception return by San Diego’s Antoine Cason in the fourth quarter. Cutler got knocked to the ground by linebacker Donald Butler. He stayed in the game and finished with 286 yards passing. He took longer than usual to come out for his postgame news conference but showed no visible signs of an injury. He and coach Lovie Smith did not mention it.

Call it a comeback. Actually, call it The Comeback. Penguins center Sidney Crosby will play tonight against the New York Islanders at Consol Energy Center, the team announced today. In a statement it was said that Crosby would speak Monday morning after a practice. He has not played since Jan. 5 because of a concussion. “There’s going to be a (period of) time before he feels comfortable and back, certainly, to the level he was playing (before the injury),” said Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who added Crosby will play on a line with wingers Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis. “The one thing I think is easy to see in practice is he’s one of the best players on the ice. He’s the best player on the ice, and you can see that with his speed and skating. He’s going to bring that to the game tomorrow.” Crosby was diagnosed with a concussion Jan. 6 after he absorbed two blindside hits over a period of five days. He was clipped by then-Washington forward David Steckel at the Winter Classic on New Year’s Eve and driven from behind into the boards by Tampa Bay defense-

man Victor Hedman on Jan. 5. Neither hit drew a fine or suspension from the NHL, thoughcertainCrosby ly the cumulative impact of each was far reaching because it cost the league its top draw and most marketed star while also bringing a sharp focus on its head-safety policies. Crosby was the NHL’s leader in goals and points, with 32 and 66 respectively, at the time of his diagnosis. His concussion occurred at the point in his career when he looked to be separating himself from his peers. In addition to being on pace for careerbest goal and point totals at the time of his diagnosis, Crosby also had just wrapped a 25-game point streak - the longest stretch since the NHL returned from its lockout season of 2004-05. “The most amazing thing about him was that he never seemed to be pressing; he was just so consistent, there was never a game when you thought, ’He’s having an off night,’” Kunitz said of Crosby’s level of play at the time of his concussion. “He was completely in control of everything on the ice. It was something to see.”

Brandon Matthews tops in WVC

Ryan Tracy

Chris McCue

Junior, Pittston Area The No. 2 golfer for the Patriots for most of the season, he tied for fourth at the Tryba Preseason Tournament and for 25th at the Pre-District tournament. He qualified for the District 2 Tournament for the third straight season. He helped the Patriots to the WVC East Division Championship with a 9-1 record. Also this past season, Pittston Area carded an even-par score for a team during a match at Fox Hill Country Club.

Junior, Wyoming Valley West A three-time district qualifier, he started his season with finishing tied for fourth at the Tryba Preseason Tournament. At the WVC Pre-District event he tied for 16th and helped his team to a 10-1 mark in the North Division for a share of the championship. It marked the second straight division title for the team.

Sophomore, Holy Redeemer He was second in District 2 tournament after winning the Wyoming Valley Conference Pre-District Tournament. The two-time district qualifier placed third at the Tryba Preseason Tournament and helped the Royals to their second straight Wyoming Valley Conference championship.

Brandon Matthews will graduate from Pittston Area in the spring and will leave with a laundry list of accomplishments. He’s not only one of the most decorated athletes in school history no matter what the sport, but is one of the most highly regarded golfers ever to lace up the spikes in the Wyoming Valley Conference. Among the titles Matthews leaves with are 2010 PIAA Champion, fourtime Tryba Preseason Tournament champion (no one had ever won the event three times), 2010 District 2 Champion and 2011 East Regional champion. He also smashed the course record at Fox Hill Country Club earlier this year when his team was playing in the WVC team tournament. “Obviously states (in 2010) really, really stands out,” Matthews said as the highlight of his career. “It was a great experience being around all those people and to play well at that stage was really, really good. “Going off that 18th green at states and giving my dad that hug, you can’t

replace that with any other feeling.” This season didn’t go as well as last season for the two-time Times Leader Golfer of the Year as he placed in a tie for 10th at the PIAA Championships last month, but he still walked away with a medal for the second straight year. Prior to the state event, he won the tournament that accounted for his only loss in the magical 2010 season when he won the regional tourney. “I wanted to win regionals really bad because that’s the only one I didn’t win last year,” Matthews said.

“Of course, I wanted to win states. I would have given up regionals for states, but…” Matthews – who has his college choices down to North Carolina, Louisiana State University, San Diego State, Charleston Southern and Temple – was also a big part of a young and thriving Patriots team. Led by Matthews, Pittston Area placed second in the conference after claiming the East Division championship. The team also was second in the team race at the Tryba. All the second-place finishes were by just a few strokes. Matthews, who was the only senior for the Patriots, took on role as mentor for some of his younger teammates helping with their swings or whatever aspect of their game needed tweeking. “It’s fun for me to teach because I like taking on that role and I feel like I could help everyone on the team a little bit,” Matthews added. “I enjoy helping them out and getting them as good as I can possibly get them.” While coaching may not be in his immediate future, being a star in college or the pros some day could be looming.

Tiger clinches Presidents Cup for Americans By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

MELBOURNE, Australia — The winning point for Tiger Woods. A perfect record for Jim Furyk. And validation for U.S. captain Fred Couples. The Americans won the Presidents Cup as a team, 19-15, avenging their worst loss ever in any cup competition 13 years ago on a Royal Melbourne course that lived up to its reputation as among the greatest tests in golf. Yet even as they gathered around the gold trophy at the closing ceremony Sunday afternoon, all of them dressed in red shirts and blue blazers, it was hard to ignore the singular achievements. Couples was criticized in

some corners for picking Woods, who had fallen out of the top 50 for the first time in 15 years and had gone two years without winning. Even the International team captain, Greg Norman, said he would have taken PGA champion Keegan Bradley. So perhaps it was only fitting that it was Woods who blasted out of a deep bunker on the 15th hole to within 2 feet to put away Aaron Baddeley and give the Americans the point they needed to win the Presidents Cup. Couples was among the first to greet him, shadow boxing with the guy he called “the best player in the world forever.” “I’m thankful that he picked me,” Woods said. “Greg is probably not happy about it after I closed out the cup today. But it’s

great to be a part of this team. I’m thankful that Freddie believed in me to be a part of this team. This is just a great bunch of guys.” Woods was solid for five matches, even though he was rewarded with only two points. On another tough day of strong winds and super slick greens, he made six birdies — the most in any of the 12 singles matches — and earned the clinching point for the second straight time. “A lot of people have asked why I picked him and how he was going to play,” Couples said. “Certainly I couldn’t answer how he was going to play, but this week I think he showed to himself that his swing is back and he’s healthy. And that’s more important to me. Obviously, we want to win the cup.

But it’s more important for me to have people realize that he can play the game.” If there was any concern, it might have been Furyk. Furyk had his worst full season since he was a rookie, failing to win a tournament or come even close, only securing a spot on the team in the final hour. He teamed with Phil Mickelson three times, Nick Watney once and was at his best by himself against Ernie Els to become only the fourth player to go 5-0 in the Presidents Cup. The others were Woods in 2009, Shigeki Maruyama in 1998 and Mark O’Meara in 1996.

Pens suffer through lost weekend in New England By DAN HICKLING Special to the Times Leader

WORCESTER, Mass. – The team that couldn’t lose on the road, now seems to have lost their way, for the moment, anyway. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, who rolled into New England on Friday unbeaten away from home wound up the weekend with their third straight loss, a 3-1 setback to the Worcester Sharks before 3,865 at the DCU Center. This one, which saw the Pens outshoot their hosts, 35-28, came following consecutive shootout losses in Portland and Manchester. “We didn’t set out to not win on the weekend,” said Pens team captain Ryan Craig, “and get two out of six points. That wasn’t our goal. We had some guys who put in some good performances. But

not enough of us did.” The Pens got off to a rough start, falling into a 2-0 first period hole, one that they were unable to dig themselves out of. Benn Ferriero netted both goals, 2:54 apart, the second of which came at 7:10 and resulted in an early exit for WBS starting goalie Brad Thiessen. Ferriero’s first came at 4:16, after he wheeled out of the left corner, spun, then zipped a 20-footer inside the left post. Soon after, with Pens captain Ryan Craig in the box for holding,

Ferriero scored again from the top of the left circle. Pens coach John Hynes said he removed Thiessen in hopes of lighting a fire beneath his troops. “We wanted to get the team going a little bit,” said Hynes. “Maybe a little bit change (would have helped). It was just something that we wanted to do to try to win the game.” The Pens answered with energy, but were unable to capitalize on their scoring chances. Their lot worsened when at 6:32 of the second stanza Brad Mashinter made it 3-0 following Simon Despres’ neutral zone turnover. Mashinter, standing alone near the left post got three whacks at a loose puck before finally popping it behind Pens’ back up goalie Scott Munroe. The Pens’ lone goal came from Eric Tangradi (his eighth), who

spoiled Worcester goalie Tyson Sexsmith’s shutout bid with 24.8 seconds remaining, while WBS skated six on four. “We’ve got to be better,” said Hynes. “We’ve got to work to get better. We didn’t play well enough to win any games.” NOTES: Ferriero was a Boston College teammate of two Pens, Carl Sneep and Brian Gibbons, although he had already left BC when Pens rookie Phillips Samuelsson enrolled there. In all, six former BC Eagles played yesterday (three per side). … Thiessen, the AHL’s reigning Goalie of the Year, was pulled for just the second time this year.

Tar Heels a bit off in victory The Associated Press

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — John Henson had 18 points and 14 rebounds to help top-ranked North Carolina beat Mississippi Valley State 101-75 on Sunday. Harrison Barnes also had 18 points for the Tar Heels (3-0), who had little trouble winning their home opener in a ragged game. North Carolina never trailed, led by 14 at halftime then blew the game open in the final 10 minutes to lead by as many as 30. That’s not to say it was a flawless performance. North Carolina struggled to make outside shots and spent most of the game shooting below 50 percent from the foul line. But the Delta Devils (0-3) couldn’t take advantage, shooting just 38 percent and 8 for 27 from 3-point range. Brent Arrington scored 33 points to lead Mississippi Valley State, which is spending the first two months of the season on the road. Connecticut 87, Coppin State 70

HARTFORD, Conn. — Shabazz Napier recorded the ninth triple-double in UConn’s history with former star Kemba Walker — the last Huskies player to do it — watching from the stands.

UConn (4-0) extended the nation’s longest active winning streak to 15 games, a mark that is also the third-longest in school history. Florida State 80, South Alabama 39

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Tim Frazier accounted for more than half of Penn State’s offense, scoring 27 points as the Nittany Lions overcame a sluggish first half to beat South Florida in the Hall of Fame Tip-off tournament. Jermaine Marshall added 11 points for Penn State (4-1), which had been blown out by Kentucky, 85-47, in the opening game of the tournament Saturday. Blake Nash had 14 points and Toarlyn Fitzpatick 11 for South Florida (3-2), which lost forward Augustus Gilchrist to a shoulder injury in the first half. South Florida led by six points in the second half before Penn State used a 12-1 run, keyed by back-to-back layups from Frazier, to hang on. Marshall’s 3-pointer tied it at 43 with just under five minutes to play and Frazier’s back-to-back layups, the second coming after he stole the ball in the backcourt, gave Penn State a 47-44 lead.

WACO, Texas — Brittney Griner had 32 points and 14 rebounds while Baylor established itself as the clear No. 1 team for now with a 94-81 victory over No. 2 Notre Dame in the preseason WNIT championship game Sunday. The Lady Bears (4-0) put the game away with a 14-3 run that was capped when Odyssey Sims had a steal that she turned into a breakway layup for a 70-58 lead with 91⁄2 minutes left. While both teams know the national championship won’t be determined until four months from now, the early No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown provided an indication of what may be to come for Griner and the Lady Bears.

The Blue Knights have won 16 consecutive PIAA tournament games since 2006. Since 1997,

and didn’t have to worry about what (Edwards) did. If this doesn’t go down as one of the greatest championship battles in history, I don’t know what will.” Edwards, who had a 4.9 average finish over the 10 Chase races, was disappointed but held his head high after the race. “This night is about Tony Stewart. Those guys rose to the occasion, and they beat us fair and square,” Edwards said. “That is all I had. We came here and sat on the pole, led the most laps and Tony still managed. That’s it. That’s all I got at the end. That’s as hard as I can drive. “I told my wife, ’If I can’t win this thing, I’m going to be the best loser NASCAR has ever had.’ So, I’m going to try really hard to keep my head up and know that we’ll just go next year and we’ll be just as hard to beat.” As third-place finisher Martin Truex Jr. did his post-race news conference, Edwards sat silently off to the side, his eyes fixated on a bank of televisions showing Stewart’s championship celebration. “If I could do it all over again, there’s nothing I could have done differently,” he whispered. “That’s my maximal effort, and Tony beat us. We knew that of all the circumstances possible, this was the least probable. But I was prepared for this.” Edwards, despite being the most consistent driver this season and points leader for 21 weeks, has been on the ropes the last month as Stewart turned up his energy, effort and trash-talking. His quick wit and sharp tongue kept the entire industry entertained as he did everything possible to get inside Edwards’ head. Maybe it was really for Stewart’s benefit, a driver trying to talk himself into believing he had a shot at the title after struggling all summer long. He maybe didn’t rattle Edwards, but Stewart for sure talked himself into this title. He arrived in Miami insistent he’d race with nothing to lose, and did just that from the moment the race began. He was moving through the field from his 15th starting spot when caution came out 14 laps into the race. His Stewart-Haas Racing crew discovered a hole in his grill, and the repairs dropped him to 40th in the field. Stewart then blew by car after car and was up to 23rd in a matter of minutes. Another caution sent him into the pits for more repairs, and he restarted in 32nd. the next best Class 2A streak is Crestwood’s eight straight victories (2003-06), and overall Emmaus won 10 straight in Class 3A (2004-06). Not only will teams want to play to be the 2012 state champions. Surely, every opponent hopes to be the one that sinks Seminary’s state streak. “All I can say is that to get here is amazing,” Klassner said. “Once you’re here, then you’ve got a target on your back.”

LSU-Alabama Round 2 is just a few victories away. A weekend filled with upsets left the Southeastern Conference rivals in the top two spots in the BCS standings released Sunday. And Arkansas is third, further increasing the possibility of an all-SEC BCS championship game Jan. 9 in New Orleans that would be a rematch of a regular-season game. It’s the first time in the 14-year history of the BCS that the same conference had to top three teams in the standings. If the Tigers can beat Arkansas on Saturday, then Georgia in the SEC title game Dec. 3, and the Crimson Tide beats Auburn on Saturday, it’s almost a lock that LSU-Alabama will play again, this time at the Superdome. LSU beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime Nov. 6 in Tuscaloosa. Oklahoma State, which suffered the most surprising loss of the weekend, fell to fourth place. The Cowboys were unbeaten and second in the BCS standings, but were upset 37-31 in double overtime at Iowa State on Friday night. “You just never know what to expect any more with what happens every Saturday,” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. Still, Oklahoma State is not out of it. The Cowboys just need some help from Auburn and LSU or from voters in the Harris and coaches’ polls who don’t have an appetite for a rematch in the BCS championship game. “Oklahoma State is still the most viable team if we get to two weeks from now and there is still a pull to not have a rematch of some sort,” said Jerry Palm, who analyzes the BCS standings for CBSSports.com.

eyes had even touched the ball. Utilizing Drake and true freshman wideout Bill Belton to take a few snaps here and there, Penn State’s offense sprang to life in the first half, racking up 20 points and 254 total yards before halftime en route to a 20-14 win. At the heart of the victory was the wildcat attack. The Lions ran four plays for 91 yards out of the scheme in the first 30 minutes, scoring one touchdown and setting up another. “They’re obviously going to continue to use it because it’s working well. Not something we had seen them do,” Ohio State coach Luke Fickell said. “We weren’t tackling. We weren’t well-prepared,” Buckeyes defensive coordinator Jim Heacock said. Tough to blame them. Penn State had not used a wildcat look extensively in any game since 2008. And that was essentially a one-time thing as Derrick Williams stepped in for a still-ailing Daryll Clark on designed quarterback runs in the upset loss to Iowa that year. Plenty of coaches had some input in installing it this time around. Tom Bradley said he was particularly impressed with how Belton ran the scout team offense a week earlier while simulating Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez. “I had seen Belton run that, and I asked our offense to put it in (for Ohio State) because I had just seen it for 10 days torch our defense,” the interim coach said. “Billy ran that in high school and he got a lot of work in against us, so it wasn’t as if we just (worked on it) for two days. “And Curtis gives you another option because he can run the same stuff, too. He ran it in high school. … We thought it would just give us a little change of pace, which it did.” Offensive coordinator Galen Hall and quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno said they had both already been looking for a spot during the season to work in a wildcat package. Taking a lesson from his fa-

Six computer rankings are used to determine the overall computer component. The highest and lowest ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided to produce a Computer Rankings Percentage.

Trio of SEC teams heads AP Top 25 The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The latest AP college football poll gives a new meaning to the term all-SEC. The Southeastern Conference is the second league to have the top three spots in ranking all to itself. No. 1 LSU held the top spot for the ninth straight week in Sunday’s rankings, and after a weekend when three other top-five teams lost, Alabama moved up a spot to No. 2 and Arkansas jumped three places to No. 3. The only other time in the 75year history of The Associated Press rankings that the top three teams all came from the same conference was the final regularseason poll of 1971, when Nebrasther, Jay Paterno said he thought finally doing it in the midst of so much turmoil for the program could actually serve as a positive. “Ten years ago when Adam Taliaferro got hurt we came out and played Purdue next week, and that Monday Joe came in and said we were going to put in some shotgun offense, which we hadn’t been doing,” Jay said. “I asked him why would we do that and he said it would distract (the players)” and give them something to take their minds off of Taliaferro’s serious spinal cord injury. Before he was fired, it was Joe Paterno himself who kept telling Drake that his day was coming. That despite breaking his leg twice in the last two years and missing long stretches of time, he would get a shot in the spot-

ka, Oklahoma and Colorado from the Big Eight were 1-2-3. And this time it’s not just one conference, but one division (the SEC West) holding down the top spots. No. 4 Stanford from the Pac-12 is the first non-SEC team in the rankings and Oklahoma State dropped from No. 2 to No. 5 after its first loss of the season. The Cowboys lost 37-31in double overtime at Iowa State on Friday night. That opened the door for Alabama to move up to No. 2. “You’re excited to see things like that of course because at Alabama we play for championships, that’s what we do,” defensive end Damion Square said after Alabama’s easy victory against Georgia Southern on Saturday.

Playoff would increase drama

By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

Those who try to pass off the BCS as the best thing for college football will use the latest wild and riveting weekend of upsets and dramatic finishes as an example of why a playoff is a bad thing. “Every game counts,” is the slogan BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock likes to work into the Bowl Championship Series press releases. If there was a playoff, he and his followers argue, the tensionfilled games that resulted in Oklahoma State, Oregon and Oklahoma getting kicked to the back of the queue in the national championship race wouldn’t be nearly as exciting. Don’t believe them. More than anything, this season is proving that the regular season is by no means a playoff — Alabama wasn’t eliminated by losing to LSU, and Oklahoma State wasn’t eliminated by falling at Iowa State — and having a real one would only increase the fun. There are arguments to be made against the BCS beyond the fact that it’s an unsatisfying way to crown a champion. But we’ll leave the not-at-allsmall matter of whether the Bowl Championship Series is a legal and ethical way for major college football to conduct its multibillion dollar business for another time. There are intriguing arguments on both sides and at some point antitrust attorneys might have to make those in a courtroom. We’ll concentrate on the competition. Heading into the final two weeks of the season there are eight teams with either zero or one loss in major college football. Of those teams, it’s safe to say that six — LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Stanford, Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech — have a shot to reach the BCS national championship game Jan. 9 in New Orleans.

We wanted to bring something new that we hadn’t used before.” Lions up to No. 19 With the win over the Buckeyes, Penn State advanced two spots to No. 19 in the latest BCS standings. Regardless of their ranking, the Lions’ path to the BCS remains clear. They will have to beat No. 16 Wisconsin Saturday to first win the Leaders Division, then beat No. 14 Michigan State the following weekend in Indianapolis to claim the Big Ten title and an automatic berth in the Rose Bowl.

Cloudy with on and off showers will be the pattern for the next few days. This morning will be a bit cloudy and wet. Showers will be scattered throughout the day and into the night. On Tuesday, we will see rain mostly all day with cloudy skies. The showers will continue into Wednesday with overcast skies. Temperatures will be cooler at night, turning the rain into a mix with snow. By Thanksgiving, the sun will return and it will be a beautiful day with mostly sunny skies. Sunshine will stick around through Saturday. Clouds and a chance for rain will come back by Sunday. - Michelle Rotella

Woman wants to wash her husband right out of the holiday kitchen Dear Abby: What is a wife to do? My husband occasionally pitches in to help me prepare holiday meals. He prides himself on his dishwashing skills, but when he’s done I have to rewash most of the pots and pans because he doesn’t check his work. If I ask him to redo them, he reacts as though it’s a criticism and has an over-the-top fit. At times like Thanksgiving I’m stressed out cooking for the family and would love his help, but it’s more trouble than it’s worth. Can you provide a strategy that can keep us humming along happily with our husbands in the kitchen? — Dreading Thanksgiving in L.A.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Dreading: Perhaps you should soak the pots and pans immediately after you’re done cooking, so when the meal is done your husband will have an easier job of washing them. If any food is still hard to remove, offer to help him by filling the utensils with water and placing them on the stove; let them boil a while, and then wash them again with detergent and a brush. Dear Abby: I have wanted a baby for a long time. Now that I’m 31, my desire is growing stronger. My boyfriend of 11 years, “Chad,” is 35.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

His daughter lives with us and I have raised her like she was mine. Chad and I discussed having a baby and went to a fertility clinic to make sure we’re healthy and would have no complications trying to conceive. Now, almost a year later and still no baby, he says he has a successful business, loves his life and doesn’t want any more kids! “Maybe down the road” he “might” change his mind. I hate him for this. I had two abortions for him five years into our relationship because he felt we weren’t ready. He was starting his business and I was still in my last year of college. Abby, please help me. I am furious with him, and I’m starting to pull away from him and his daughter. — Cheated in New York

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Cheated: I’m sorry, but your signature indicates you have a firm grasp of your situation. It appears you will never have what you want if you stay with Chad, so pack your bags and get on with your life. Dear Abby: My wife of 15 years has been forthcoming about the four serious relationships (two marriages included), she had before we were married. Recently, however, she mentioned she still has a “place in her heart” — and always will — for her first boyfriend. They had a three-year high school romance. I find this really disturbing. It’s like I will never get 100 percent of her heart, no matter what. I could almost accept feelings for an ex-husband because of the nature of the relationship

— but a boyfriend? Come on! Please advise. — She Has All of Me Dear All Of Me: Your wife’s first love will always have a place in her heart because the relationship has been idealized. They didn’t experience the ups and downs of daily living. You HAVE all of her, including the fact that she tends to romanticize the past. However, when the subject of the past is raised, you turn it to the present or the future. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You love some of what you are doing, and you’ll really start to excel when you get to the place where you love it all. For now, settle for at least dropping your resistance to the more challenging pieces. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Just as physical pain is a warning that what’s going on is harmful to the body, emotional pain is a message that what’s going on is harmful to the soul. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes you’re surprised when people follow and imitate you. Don’t be. Believe that what you’re doing is beneficial to you and will benefit others, as well. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will change what you say based on the ears that are around you. It’s not because you’re wishywashy; it’s because you are sensitive to those who are younger or older. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Though you truly want and need a certain level of attention, you’ll think more about what a special someone in your life wants or needs, and you’ll come up with a way of supplying it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The greatest spiritual challenge of all time is to stay “in the moment.” And yet you do this at several points throughout your day, most notably when you are enjoying yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be balancing the pros and cons of your relationships. It’s not polite to keep track, and yet it’s impractical not to. If anyone can strike this complicated balance, it’s you.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anything can happen at any moment, which is just the way you like it. If life were too predictable, you’d do something outrageous just to shake it up again. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The ones with whom you are closest are perhaps not as attentive as you want them to be. The ones just outside your inner circle will close the gap, and it will all even out in the end. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your friends and colleagues will do things that surprise you. Perhaps this involves the kind of professional and personal achievements that give you the slightest tinge of jealousy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The person who is joking around may make you feel as though his or her words are not the least bit funny. Freud said that there are no jokes, and maybe he was right. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Serious demands are being made on you. Whether or not anyone has the right to make these demands is debatable. But they are being made, nonetheless. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 21). You fall in love with life over and over again. You’ll put much of your attention into an activity that makes you feel connected to many people at once. In 2012, you’ll watch excitedly as your team or candidate becomes No. 1. Professional developments in February and March will contribute to a move. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 12, 24 and 28.
